Carol glad you got your mowing done between rains. I hear ya on the meal that is like our 4th breakfast lots of work but good money so we keep doing it. Not sure how much longer we can keep this up but will keep trying I guess. Well the mowing is done so enjoy your weekend. I don't know what they are thinking for my job but I am not going to care anymore just want them to get the new person in and me out. I have so much I want to do at home. Plus if the big boss won't listen to Ed then they are on their own. Still not sure how much I am doing to train this person. Time will tell.

Del wanted to go to a few garage sale but only two and not real good. Came home worked on the towels I had to do so they are done. Didn't really feel like doing to much so sat around watched TV then Del said maybe we should go see his dad and step mom so off we went. Then came home watched more TV and off to bed. Still having trouble sleeping so up again at 2 tried to sleep but at 3:30 said just get up work on something. So got up cut the threads on the towels I did worked on some VFW stuff. Got my Zwieback done for Memorial Coffee in the morning. Going to pick up my dad then off to church, and stop and see my mom's grave then stop at Dad's have Del's soda then friends want us to go on a road trip to drop something off for one of their kids so guess that will be our day.
Have a great Sunday

Vicki, glad Del's dad seems to be okay. I am sure that is a relief to you and Del. Boy, I can't understand why they need someone at the city job everyday is work is so slow so much of the time. Glad you got to leave early and get you running done.

It rained most of yesterday. Quit about 4 P.M. Today has been really nice. I went to town this morning and picked up some groceries. Then mid afternoon went out and mowed. I didn't want to go out too early as wanted to make sure it was dry. Tomorrow is suppose to be nice but then rain again for Monday and Tues. Glad it stayed nice long enough for me to get that mowing done. It really needed it again. No plans for Memorial Day. We used to serve a dinner at church on Memorial Day but it was decided not to have it anymore. I am kind of glad as it is a lot of work, but it was a good money raiser, so am sure we will miss the extra dollars.

emoticon Happy Memorial Day emoticon

Went to city job not much going on there. Ed said he was leaving at lunch time and I said maybe I will leave at 1 so asked Jake if that was ok and he was good with it. So that is what I did and went to put out the VFW box's came home got Del we went back to Cemetery to help put up flags but they said they had enough people so we went home. That was so nice. Had leftover for dinner watched a movie and off to bed. Couldn't sleep not sure why so up at 3 so marked things for garage sale then computer work, then not sure what we are doing today. So everyone have a great weekend

Cheri so glad your ok after using the chems I never would have thought of that either. Guess we all have to be careful these days. Glad your ok now but sure hope that cold goes away soon. emoticon kiddo

Carol glad the flower pot is at the cemetery bet is pretty. Sorry you had a gain again so hard to be good but keep trying.

Del called his dad before we went to work he said he was ok and didn't need anyone to take him to DR so nobody did but told him to call us to tell us what he found out. Del's brother called us last night and said he was fine, and his dad told us not to worry. So guess when your 90 you can still tell the kids what to do. LOL But I told Del to call him more. I went to city job Ed worked all day, but we didn't have a lot to do and that was ok. After work Del wanted to go to Lincoln to buy a amp he seen on Craig's list so we went he liked so he got. I wanted to go to the sewing place and get something I wanted but they closed before we got there so told Del I get to get my stuff next time. Ed wanted to use our hot tub so got that ready before we left for lincoln. This morning I went to clean it out we need new filters bad. Good thing I had another set but we need another one on hand. Good thing Del mowed when he did it has been raining all night. Well need to go to city job and after work we are putting up flags for MM day if it is not raining. So better get out the door have a good weekend.

Boy, Cheri, I sure hope you can get lots of rest over the weekend and get over that cold. You have had it long enough. That would be scary to react that way to the chemicals. Glad it didn't last any longer.

Vicki, sorry you had such a long day. You were doing her a favorite. She should have come to your house to do the flowers, I would thing, instead of you having to do all that driving. Sorry to hear Del's dad gave you all a scare. Hope all is okay with him. Keep us updated.

Well, picked up my flowers and took them to cemetery, so they are there for Memorial Day. I gained again at Tops. Have to get back to being more careful what I eat, I guess.

Hi all,

So stayed home today and relaxed trying to get rid of cold. Got a text from boss this am asking how I felt. Told her not great. She said stay home and get better. Think really she just didn't want me in office to spread it around. lol Anyway stayed home and decided that I would clean the bathrooms. Boy what a mistake. that was. The chemical smell really got me. Thought I was in big trouble after. Couldn't breath, had pain in chest. Wow was awful. But after about half hour was better. Will know better then to do that again. Guess should have thought about that, but didn't even cross my mind. Oh well ok now so that is what matters. Was scary though so for future reference don't do that!! lol Now just hanging out watching tv.

Wow that was a long day for you Vicki. Sorry didn't get them done while there. And all that driving and gas. ugh. Oh well sometimes that is how things work out. HOpe maybe next time she gets you the lunch. Glad Del had done the lawn while you were gone. That was a nice suprise. wow sure hope all is ok with Del's dad. Keep us posted.

Thats all so have a good one.

Carol glad you got the pot and getting new flowers in it. That was nice of you to go to the play and glad it was good. Sorry to much rain yet us too off and on here right now.

Cheri sorry that darn cold is holding on glad you didn't get the grand kids so you could get better. Vic'sing up and cough med will help, keep taking it. Hope you feel better for the weekend.

Took more moose down to put on garage sale then took off for Lincoln. It took us all day and still never got done had to bring some home to finish. But we got 35 wrist flowers done and 4 boutineers done. She is not crafty at all, that is why it took all day. Had to run to store two times (in my car) - so that took a hour each time and at 4pm I said I had to go home. That cost me gas and time and she was going to take me out for lunch but that never happened. We both wanted to get things done so never went out to eat. What a crazy day. Came home Del mowed thank goodness. So finished the flowers and watched a movie and off to bed. Got a phone call from our Step Mom at 9:15pm scared us both to death, nobody is to call our house after 9 and she said Del's dad had feel and hurt his head. Then we worried all night. She is 88 or 89 and she is losing it and worries about things she don't remember the next day. So this morning Del called his dad who is 90 and he said he was ok and was going to DR and Del asked if he wanted him to go with and he said NO. So have to do what he wants. So guess now we are on hold till he calls us and tells us what is going on. Well I need to get to city job, so have a great day everyone.

Hi all,

So was supposed to have the kids today, but got a text from Heather that her grandma wanted them. It worked out real good as I really don't want to get them sick again. Although I think they are the ones that gave it to us. lol Anyway I ended up going to office for a little bit to get some stuff done. Once meds started wearing off I left cuz started coughing a lot again. Once home took more meds and just hung out. Will be doing the vicks again tonight. Sure hope this gets over with soon.

Carol that is a lot of rain. We are getting sporatic rains here. Nothing crazy, just some everyday. Supposed to continue that way for quite awhile. Hope we can get rid of the rain soon. you too. That was nice of you to sit through the show for the girls. Glad they did a nice job. Yep that happens when the pot is at the cemetary. GLad you remembered and can get it out there over the weekend.

Vicki glad Ed came into work. That is good. Hope he is doing ok. I know he must be dealing with a lot. Glad not too busy there. Glad you were able to get the day off for the flowers to be done. Sounds like your time there is coming to an end. Hope they get someone hired soon so you can get your own routine going. Congrats on the win at cards. Sure is nice to win occasionally.

Well that is all for now. Have a good one and talk later.

Not much going on around here. We had over 1/2 inch of rain yesterday. Today is sunny and windy. The wind gusts last night were up to 550 mph. Monday night went to a program put on by two neighbor girls for their 4-H project on e-coli. They are doing it for groups to have people make suggestions on how to improve it. It will be the project they will take to the stat fair. They really did a good job. Yesterday I took a large flower pot to flower store to have them put flowers in it for the cemetery. Probably should have done it sooner but just forgot, but Sunday remembered to pick up pot at cemetery. It will be ready on Thursday so I will have it out for the weekend.

Cheri, sorry that cold is hanging on so long. Glad the people at the meeting were agreeable to shortening the meeting so you could go home and rest. Take care of yourself.

Vicki, congratulations on the win at cards. You always sound like you have so much fun-win or lose. Hope they make a decision on your job soon so you can get into your own routine.

Cheri so sorry your still not feeling well. Glad they cut the meeting short so you could take care of yourself. They have two more to interview because with Ed gone they wanted him to do them also. So not sure when my last day will be but really hoping soon, now want to start working in my own home, plus I want to go swim each day and get some of this weight off. Now Vic's up again and go to bed and sweat that darn stuff out. emoticon

Cleaned my two offices then came home started taking down Moose things to put on garage sale, then city job. Ed was there was so nice to have him back, we got a lot done then he took the afternoon off. Was not busy the rest of the day, and it rained all day and was cold out. Came home Del wanted Meat Loaf for dinner so made one of them it was pretty good. Then the card players came, what fun and guess what? I WON emoticon They all took off and I had my capa and then off to bed. Slept great. Today going to help the new NE State VFW Department Pres make flowers for her installation in June. So took a day off at work, really it was my day off anyway but with Ed out they wanted me to be in, but now that Ed is some what back I said had this planned a long time ago so hope they were ok with it. All is good there. Well better get dressed and out the door have a great Hump day.

So got up early today took shower and took Mike to airport. Then into work from there. Only stayed about two hours. Was coughing too hard to stay. Came home put some vicks on my chest and took cough meds. Dozed most of the day. Then had a meeting tonight. Went to it had a couple of coughing attacks while there. They cut meeting short for me so could get home and take care of me. That was nice of them.

Vicki wow strange how that worked iwth the babies. Glad work wasn't to bad. Have they hired the new person yet? If so when do they start? Good luck with that. 'Sounds like you had a busy day. Glad you get to play cards tonight. That is always a good time for you. Enjoy!

Well that is it for now. Have a good one and talk later.

Carol glad you got the trash out so you don't have to do it in the rain. Here my mom and her sister had only girls and my grandpa wanted boys so bad. then I had a boy and my sister had two boys and my little sister lost a baby then had a girls. So Grandpa got his boys but never got to play with them for he passed away when I had Samuel. Then Leah had two boys and my sister pam's son had a boy and Samuel had a step son. Look at all the boys my grandpa could have played with. How crazy is that first all girls now almost all boys. But Love them all.

Cindy you son is right God knew you all needed to have something to get you through the loss of your mom. And yes I am ready for warm weather.

Cheri sorry your still not feeling well that summer cold stuff is just no fun. Hope the cough meds help soon. The changing of the weather dosen't help either. But glad you can go to work and get things done, just hope you don't pass what you have to others, for then it will just keep going round. So get well kiddo.

Got my one office cleaned then went to city job. Ed had come in on Sunday to work not sure why but had things to do then. He didn't come in yesterday but said he would be in on Tue. I am sure he needs to get out of the house. His son is working for the Rec department - mowing lawns ETC and he came to work yesterday. Was nice he thought he could do that already. Life does move on even when we hurt. Was not crazy busy but the last two hours took for ever to get over. Came home was so cold out we had to turn the heat back on in the house. Now that is Crazy. But I slept really good my alarm went off first time in a long time. So now up doing sparks, then go clean two offices then city job then cards. So long busy day.

Hi all,

Well today went into work. Got alot of my letters done for violations from all the walks so that was good. Feel really horrible now. Coughing like a mad man. ugh Chest and ribs are killing me. Stopped and bought more cough syrup and drops. Still coughing like crazy. Hope it stops soon.
Tonight will just relax and hope to feel better tomorrow. Have two meetings tomorrow so have to feel better. lol Yes it is very strange that we all lost pregnancy. Seems we have more in common then we thought. lol

Vicki sorry lost the block job, but as you said if he can get it cheaper so be it. A lot of work for little pay not worth your time and trouble. You are worth more then that. Hope you know that. Wow surprised Ed might be at work today. So soon. Hope he gives himself a little time to grieve. Guess some of us need to keep busy though too. Glad you got to see the kids again and they were so happy to see you. Little ones sure can light up your life. I know mine do.

Carol glad you got the trash all together and out without having to deal with the rain. We too are supposed to have mostly rain this week. Yuk. Yep your right sometimes nice to get out and forget our misery. It does help. Yes the coincidence is strange on the losses. Glad you feel the same as me and are very happy with the boys we all have.

Cindy that is a very nice way to think of things with your mom's loss. We had some nice weather the last two weeks and today back down in the 60's. However the next few days are to be back in the 80's but with lots of rain. Sure hope it warms up there for you all soon.

Well that does it for me. Have a good one all and talk later.

Just one more thing on my loss and I will shut up. But Vicki said something in her comments that made it pop in my head. Lol I have 5 brothers and 3 sisters. When mom got sick each of us girls got pregnant and had the babies within 3 months of each other. My oldest said it was Godís way of giving us something to help us through our pain of dealing with momís sickness and then her passing. I thought that was a cool way of thinking about it.

One more thing óis it ever going to warm up? emoticon

That really is a coincident that we all lost babies. I was about 6 months along when I lost mine. Very heart breaking as both Larry and I were excited about it. But a year later I had Dan, my older boy and were and are very happy with him.

Cheri, sorry your cold is hanging on. Summer colds are so hard to get rid of. Glad you went to Mase's game and out with the kids to eat. Sure you enjoyed yourself even with not feeling well. Sometimes it helps to do things as it helps us forget our misery.

Vicki, sorry you lost the quilt job, but at least you have the towels to do. Sounds like a busy day what with the birthday party and graduation to go to. Glad you got to stop and see Leah and the boys.

Not too much going on today. At least not raining today. Got the garbage together and got it hauled out. Garbage man comes on Thurs., but wanted to make sure I got it out when not raining.

Cindy so sorry for your loss of your mom so young. And sorry no girls Leah feels the same but she loves her boys just like you all love your boys. I too had a miss carry but not sure what it was for was only three weeks Pj. God knows what we all needed and just glad our kids are all healthy and still with us. I am so glad we can all come here to tell how we all feel and vent when we need too. God's Blessings to you all

Carol sorry for the loss of your little girl, like I said God knew what we could handle. Glad you got your mowing done before all the rain. I hope we can get ours done before the next set of rain here.

Cheri sorry for the loss of your little girl also, how crazy is that we all lost a little one. Guess God knows best. Glad you got to go see Mason play his game they do improve the more they play. Sorry your still coughing, sure hope you feel better soon summer colds are not fun.
emoticon Now take your meds like a good girl and get better.

Avery is 1y 5m and Xander is 4y 8m they are growing up way to fast and Nicole is going to be 2y the end of May and Michael is 10y time is moving way to fast for grandma with the little ones but not fast enough to get Samuel home from the war. He comes one the end of Oct to long yet.

Got a text from the guy who wanted me to do the quilt block and he decided to go with someone else that will do it for $50. I said well that is nice, he wanted the material back so told him to stop by and pick it up. He did and I said sorry but with everything you wanted on the block it was going to cost him but if you found someone to do everything you wanted me to do for $50 to go for it. I really would like to know what she is going to do for that money. But kinda glad I don't have to do it now. I have 12 golf towels to do with names and numbers on them, so now I can get them done before the end of the month. Went to Staplehurst for our Great Aunts 85 birthday party for about a hour then took off for a graduation party in Lincoln stayed about a hour and because they were just down the street from Leah's stopped there to see the boys and Avery was so happy to see me. Leah says he never sits in her lap like he does for me. That made my day. Then we came home watched a movie and off to bed. Now up early to go clean a office then city job. Not sure if Ed will be there but we will see. So better get moving have a good week

Hi all,

So today went out to Mason's game. He did a little better today. They are so cute at that age. then we all went to lunch. Then came home and rested some, then we went to dinner with Jeff and the kids. Now home and resting again. Coughing like crazy and giving me a headache. ugh wish I could just feel better. I hate having a cold. We were going to work in garden today but neither of us had the energy. oh well maybe next weekend.

Carol glad you got the mowing done. With all the rain we are having this year hard to get ti into the schedule with the rain. We are having a ton of it this year. Yep can't believe another week is starting either. Seems like days go so fast now.

Vicki so glad the day with the boys went well. Love i t when the babes let you know how much they like you. Makes you feel good, but at same time hard to see them cry like that. lol How old is Avery now by the way? Seems like just yesterday was when she had Xander. Boy time sure flies.

Cindy boy your mom was real young. I guess being reflective can get you down. I too have just boys. First pregnancy also a girl that I didn't carry full term. Love my boys but would have like a girl too. HOwever once I had the first boy never really cared if had boy or girl after that. Anyway yep sure you guys do feel the loss at times. Hope feeling better about things tomorrow.

Well have a good one all and talk later.

Start of another week. Went to church this morning. Yesterday afternoon I decided to go out and mow as long as the grass was pretty dry. Rain was expected again so thought I better get it done or who need when it might be dry enough to get it done. Glad now I did. It rained most of the night and has been misting off and on all morning.

Cheri, sorry you are still not feeling the best. Hope you are better today. Glad you got out and enjoyed the day. Sure you enjoyed the bike ride and visiting with boys.

Vicki, glad the day went well with the boys. That is cute that he waved good bye to you when you left, but then cried. He must have enjoyed having you there. Glad you could help Leah out.

Cindy, sorry you lost your mom when she was so young. It is so easy to reflect back on those things when something similar happens to someone we know. I, too, had boys and would very much like a girl. My first pregnancy was with a girl, but I didn't care her full term. Guess that is how it goes.

Everyone have good week.

Feeling reflective this morning. I too lost my mom when she was 53. It was cancer so we did have time to prepare. Didnít make it any easier as it happened in a quick time frame. At the time I didnít really take in how early in her life it was! As I came closer and passing that age it really came into play how young this was! She missed out on so much! And we as a family missed out on having her around for so many mile stones.
The day we layed her to rest I gave birth to son number 3. His birthday and age is my reminder how many years have gone by. Everyday when I went to visit she would say ďgo have that babyĒ. I knew in my heart I was having another boy went I became overdue. I didnít want to disappoint her as we both wanted me to have a girl! A few years later I was due on her birthday. In my heart it was supposed to be a girl on her birthday. I went into labor the next and had son number 4. Oh well. I know itís bad to feel bad about having all boys! LOL I really want a daughter. And daughter-in-laws are not the same! emoticon

Vicki I really feel Ed and his childrenís pain. May she Rest In Peace.

Carol glad you had a good time with your kids and I guess we have to pay for things once in a while and we donít care because thatís just how we are, for we love our kids. Just glad you had a good time with them.

Cheri sorry your still not feeling well but glad you went on the cycle and enjoyed the day. Glad your yard is mowed, and then going out with your kids was nice. Sounds like a great day.

Got to Leahís boys were still in bed. Then Leah and Marlon took off for drill, about half hour later Xander got up then 15min later Avery got up so made them breakfast. Then we played then got them dressed. Got the wagon out thought we go to garage sales but didnít find any so came back home. Watched cartoons and played with toys. Then time for lunch. Then time for Avery to take a nap and. Xander got his iPad, and I took a little nap. Avery go up and Xander wanted to play in basement, then snack time. Then Leah came home. I took off for home Avery was standing by door I was waving goodbye and he started crying. He loves his grandma, that made me feel good. Got home, made leftovers for dinner and watched tv then bed. Not going to church wanted to sleep in and I did sleep. Was so nice. Today have two parties to go to so better get dressed, have a nice Sunday.

Hi all,

Well still not feeling great, but we decided to not let it keep us in. We went out on the motorcycle for the majority of the day. Left at 11am, went to lunch, then headed out to the airport. They were having a 50 yrs anniversary at the little airport in the next town over. So went and walked around then came home for a bit. Mike mowed the lawn, then went and met up with the boys and went out to the lake. Had a couple of drinks then headed back home stopped for dinner. Came home not doing this. Over all was a great day. Just wish I felt better. Oh well got to keep it going I guess.

Carol so glad to hear you had a great time with the kids. That is so nice. Glad they were able to make it and sounds like you had a couple of nice meals together too. Glad they were able to come back and spend time with you at the house. Sounds like a very nice day.

Vicki I agree with Carol, you probably are not giving yourself and your time enough value. You are worth the money. Hope you had a nice time with the grands today. We are to be with ours for a bit tomorrow. Mason has a game then we are to go to a petting zoo. We also need to plan a picnic with them for the following weekend. Hope you mexican was good. It sound delish. I love mexican.

Cindy hope the concert was great!

Well that is all for now. Have a good one all.

Well, had a great time with son and DIL yesterday. But, Vicki, I did pay for the meal. Money is pretty tight for them and I don't mind doing it when they come. We went to Pizza Ranch and had lunch. Then came home and visited and watched TV. Then we went back to town about 7 to Culvers and had supper. They left for home from there, so I came home. Today not doing much of anything.

Cheri, glad you had good time in Vegas even if you didn't win any money. Don't think too many people come away with very much money. Sorry you and Mike still aren't feeling well. Hopefully it won't hang on too long.

Vicki, again sorry about the death of Ed's wife. So sad any time but especially when they are so young. Hope the couple agree to your plans for the quilt. I am sure you do charge too little for your work. Probably for your baking too. You need to consider your time as having value too, not just the actual work.

Everyone have a good day.

Cindy you posted about the same time I did so had to go back to find what you wrote. I too hope you do well on the challenge, my challenge here on the team nobody joined so I dropped it. I really need to have a challenge to keep on track to be good. So hope your challenge makes you be good.

Cheri glad you got Mike picked up but sorry you both still don't feel well hope today you both do so you can go out and do something fun. Get better both of you and have a good weekend

Was crazy busy before the funeral at work. Then Del came to pick me up and off we went. Very hard to listen to his kids talk about their mom. She was just so young and her kids have not got to do all the things she wanted them to do. Like get married, have kids ETC I just feel so bad for ED this is really going to be hard on him, for I know it would be on me. Went back to city job didn't have a lot to do, so looked up how much to charge on my sewing and I was surprised what I found out. I am not charging enough for my work,(Like Del would say Surprise told you) so now have to decide what I am doing to charge him. So while watching the grand kids today will come up with a price and see if they go for it. Came home after work Del wanted Mexican to eat so ordered it out he picked it up, we had that watched a TV show and off to bed. I just don't know what is wrong with me up at 12:30pm and last time I looked at the clock it was 2:30am then the next thing I knew the alarm was going off at 4am. I had to get up early to do sparks then take off for Leah's at 5am to baby sit the boys Marlon and Leah both have drill today. So guess I better get out the door. It is raining right now and dark out not good for these old eyes but we will be fine. Have a great weekend

Hi all,

Well today went and picked Mike up at the airport. He did the red eye last night. He has been dozing most of the day so been just hangin here. Not feeling great so decided not to go to office. Rest of the weekend no real plans so we shall see what we end up doing.

Cindy thanks for update on what you are counting down. yep I hear ya. Hard to lose weight when you get older. I too have a real hard time with it. Hope the 21 day plan works for you.

Vicki sorry about your sad day. Hope all get through it ok. So hard when someone dies, but even harder when it happens so unexpectedly. Hope the quilt guy decides to go for it and you make some money. you need to get some sleep so hope it happens soon. lol

Carol have fun with the kids and take it easy on the food. Sure you will do fine this week. Keep up the good work.

Well that is all for now. Have a good one all and talk later.

Carol sorry for the gain but you will do better this week. Yes that dip could have done it lots of salt in them. Have fun with your son and his wife. Glad you don't have to cook and let them pay it is time we let our kids pay for us. LOL Just have a good time and then start back on the food plan after they leave.

Cheri so glad your back. Sorry no win but just having a good time is what counts. Sorry Mike got a cold and gave it to you. Need to get that over fast it is summer and summer colds are no fun. emoticon Get well Sounds like your right back at it with work and grand kids. Make sure you take time for you too.

Cindy yes what are you counting down??

Went to city job was crazy busy for some reason. Think everyone was getting things done so they could go to the funeral today. Was a nice day wish I could have been outside to enjoy but being in a office is no fun. Del and I went to the Church for family visit then came home had a little dinner and then I went to plant new tomato plants and Del fixed the antenna on the roof so did get to spend a little time outside. Came in watched a TV Show then off to bed. Up early that darn quilt is on my mind can't wait to see if he wants to pay the price I came up with. If he says yes then I can get working on it. Today is going to be a really sad day we have to say good bye to a very nice lady "Lilly" Ed's wife. I have to work this morning then we are closing the office then we will reopen at 1pm and I work til 4. Ed gave me the biggest hug last night and he always calls me his honey bunny and he called me that last night and said he missed me. Then I started crying. Gave our sympathy's and took off, before the rosary. So today is going to be very hard. It is starting to rain and it is Thundering and lighting so better get off the computer have a great weekend

Cheri I am trying really hard to stick to a 21 day challenge. I need to really trust the plan. The older I get the weight doesnít come off as easy as it used to. Trying to step on the scale and accept what it says. Working on the system of having more Green Dayís than Red or Yellow LOL

Hi all,

Well back to the old routine again. Got back on Tuesday night late. Yesterday woke with a cold so not feeling so great. Mike got sick while we were in Vegas so guessing he gave it to me. ugh. Hope it doesn't get any worse. Had a good time, but sure didn't win. Oh well didn't go over what was budgeted so that is good. Worked yesterday then last night had a meeting. Today had the kids and tonight a board walk inspection so just got home. Sorry didn't get on while away, we just never were in the room very long.

Vicki I am so sorry to hear about your boss's wife. That is so sad. Hope he gets through it ok. Wow guess they needed you at the job with him out for that. HOpe it doesn't get to boring. Glad the sewing is picking up for you.

Carol glad the kids are coming by this weekend. That will be nice for you. Glad your weather has improved, boy it was a long stretch. Sorry you had a gain. Hope you get it back off. I gained 1 lb while away so was pretty happy as thought would be more.

Cindy not sure what you are counting down, can you let me know. Hope all is well.

Well have a good one and talk later.

With the nice weather we are having, cycle riding should be enjoyable. I know my older son rides his cycle to work when the weather is nice. It is in the 80's here today. Almost to big a jump over what we had been having. Hope man likes your ideas for the quilt block. Yes, people don't realize how much time goes into the planning for a thing like the block.

Went to Tops this morning. News not good. I gained. I was really disappointed because I had been doing so well. The funny part is I ate more veggies last week, but used a dip so maybe that was the problem. Oh, well, back to watching more carefully, I guess. Son and DIL are coming tomorrow to spend the day. We will go out for lunch. That way I don't have to cook. Will enjoy visiting with them. Have a good day.

Carol your lucky to have Dental Ins. Sure hope your son and his wife stop over always nice to visit with your kids. Have a good time

Took my motor cycle to city job. Was a nice ride. Was not crazy busy at work so looked at internet almost all day. Sure would like to know what the new person is going to do all day. Right now they will be busy learning but then what are they going to do?? Oh well not my worry. Came home meet with the guy with quilt block have some ideas and sent him pictures today to see what they think then will shoot them a price and see if they can afford to do it. Then I mowed the lawn Del said to let it go till Thur and I said I like to mow, he said then go ahead. So I did. Then went to water my garden and something got to my plants so don't know if they will make it or not. Will check on them this morning and if the same thing happened I'm done no more garden so hope they are ok today. Came in had a little dinner and took showers and watched a TV show then off to bed. Didn't sleep to well the quilt was on my mind so just got up to work on it. Wish people knew how much time I spend on these things and never get paid for, if they only knew. It took me a hour last night and 2hrs this morning. And I have not even sewed anything yet. Oh well that is how it goes with sewing. Well better get dressed for city job. Chat later

Vicki, that extra money from working all week will come in handy, I'm sure. But if you are not busy I am sure it gets rather boring. Sorry Del didn't feel well last night. Hope he felt better this morning. Hope it is not the chicken because chicken is so good for you. Hope you are able to do the quilt square for the couple.

Had a dentist appointment today to get my teeth cleaned. I had peridontal surgery so now get my teeth cleaned every 3 months. Thank goodness I have dental insurance. It sure helps. Then stopped at McDonalds and had some breakfast and then at store and picked up some prescriptions and then home. Been a quiet afternoon. Tomorrow, of course, is Tops. My younger son and wife may come over this weekend. Will be nice if they do. Enjoy visiting with them.

Have a good Thur.

Went to city job, was not to busy. Del and I and Jake went out for lunch at DQ $5 meal. Stopped at Ed's but they were on the way to funeral home to pick out casket so didn't get to spend anytime with the family. So we came home made some dinner and waited for the card people to come. Del had a bad tummy ache but he keep playing and won. I was out early and didn't care I was so sleepy so I just had planted my tomatoes, and peppers so thought I better go water them. So did that and put thing away in the house then it was time for everyone to go home. Del took some Tum's and he came to bed and finally got to sleep. He was in a lot of pain. We think it was the chicken, we both don't do well with chicken anymore. Not sure why so we will see how we feel after eating left over. If we both get tummy aches again NO more chicken for us. I slept good again last night, but must not be getting a good sleep for am sleepy all day at work. Think it is being on the computer so much. Oh well that is how that goes. Tonight have a Husband and wife coming to have me do a quilt square and we will see what they all want on it and if I can do it for them. Let you all know later. Well better get dressed for city job. Have a great Hump Day

Cindy so glad you stopped in - yes it is my boss Ed they both were in the car but his wife had internal injuries and just couldn't hold on. I feel so sorry for Ed and the kids.

Carol So glad to hear your boys called even if you didn't get to talk to youngest one. At least he called. Glad you got your mowing all done, always feels good to have that done and smells good too. Glad you got the first check from Brian hope he has a good crop this year.

Stopped at Walmart got all the supplies to take up to Ed's and a pizza and coffee cake. Stopped at work to check on things then went to his house. He is doing ok health wise but he is in shock and I don't blame him. He just keep saying I wish it was me and not her. I know how he feels that is what I keep saying when Del was so sick. So I just hug him and said we will make it through this. I am so blessed that Del is still here with me, after what he has gone through. We live each day the best we can and now that is has happened I really don't care if I lose my weight, but I will try not to put anymore on. So I will always be trying to be thin but will live to love what I have. Then went back to work at city, was a long day and having to tell people Ed's wife had passed was hard. It was on the news about what happened then people knew more and that helped. Came home got a call from two people to do some sewing and another lady stopped by my office to drop off some towels that needed names on so that will keep me busy. One guy needed pants hemmed he stopped in I took measurements and got them done already and called him said they are done, he was shocked so came and got them. The other guy needs a quilt square done, they are coming out Wed to show me what they kinda want, sure hope I can do it for them. We will see. Then Del and I had dinner and watched a show and off to bed. I slept good for didn't the night before because had Ed and his wife on my mind all night so guess I needed the sleep last night. Well they asked if I could come to work each day this week and maybe next week. I said I could but on the days I already had something planned they are ok with that. Told them I may have more hours then they want me too, they are ok with that too. So if they are ok with it then so am I. Well better get dressed then and off to city job then cards tonight. Sorry this is so long but sometimes I don't stop talking. So have a great Tuesday.

Vicki, so sorry to hear about Ed's wife. It is hard to lose a spouse anytime but when they are so young, I think, it is even harder. Hope your presence will help him some. My prayers will be with Ed and his family. Yes, both my boys called although I didn't get to talk to my younger boy. He called while I was in church and then again while I was mowing. I tried calling him back but just got a busy signal. Tried again this morning and still can't get hold of him. My older boy called last night and talked for some time. Finished my mowing today, so that is done until the end of the week and then it will need it again. Brian was here today and planted the field with corn and gave me my first check for land rent. So hope we have good growing weather.

Carol glad you got some of the mowing done. Glad you went out and had a nice meal. Did your boys call?

Picked up Dad went to church, stopped at his house to have Del's soda then off to shop with Leah. She got new clothes and shoes I just looked around. Then I stopped at Sam's to pick things up I needed and off for home. Samuel called me and told me Happy Mom's day, and we talked for a little bit then he had to call his wife. Del and I had what ever we could find to eat for dinner and was watching a movie when I got a phone call from my cousin Jodi who told me that ED and his wife Lily were in a car accident. Lily passed away. Ed is ok but in shock. We all went to his church were they had a prayer for them. Then we came home and all I could do was cry and lay there and think. Then about midnight Ed sent me a text to tell me Lily was gone, I just happen to hear my cell go off. So texted him back asking if he wanted me to come over he said no, I said I would be there in the morning. Then I went to bed and must of feel asleep next thing I knew it was 5am. So up going to run to Walmart to get things for his house, like paper goods, coffee, ETC Del told this to me before we went to bed for he didn't think Eds kids would have thinking caps on and I agreed. So will run to do that stop at work see what is going on and then take off for Eds. This is so sad she was only in her 50's and her kids just graduated from College, last weekend. So everyone live your life like today maybe the last day. emoticon LOVE you all GOD's Blessings emoticon

Vicki, hope you got to go shopping with Leah. Did you find anything to buy? Boy, that was a long day at the VFW meeting. Glad Del made dinner so you didn't have to do that when you got home.

Went to church this morning. We had coffee and cake for the graduates after church. Then I came home and watched the Twins/Detroit baseball game. After that I went out and mowed about half of the lawn. Would have done more but it was getting chilly and it was going on 6 P.M. I decided to run to town and have dinner. Went to Culvers and had cheesy broccoli soup and grilled chicken sandwich. Came home.

Have a good Monday. Suppose you have to work tomorrow.

Carol sounds like your going to have everything done for the weekend so you can just relax. Then your busy week is going to start. Your boys will call or email you and we will take what we can get with our kids gotta love them. As for my job will be there to train some then see how much longer they will keep me but have to get someone first.

Went to our Budget meeting for VFW Department left Seward at 8am left Fremont at 5pm so very long day. Started to rain as I was coming home and rained most of the night. Called Del to see if I needed to pick up dinner he said do we have anything here said we had spaghetti sauce in the fridge if he wanted to make up noodles that would be great, not that I need noodles but at this point didn't care. So got home that is what we had, tasted good have not had noodle in a long time. Then watched a TV show and off to bed. Slept pretty good. Leah called me yesterday wanted to know if I wanted to go shopping with her for Mother's day for her hubby asked what she wanted and she said a day with no kids. So that is what we are going to go do. Shop Told her I would call after church and go from there. So going to pick up my dad go to church then see if the shopping is still on.
So Happy Mom's Day Everyone emoticon

Having a quiet day. Washed clothes this morning. So that is out of the way for another 2 weeks. With just my own clothes to wash I don't get a load too fast. Have been watching Twins baseball this afternoon and now they are playing a second game with Detroit. Detroit won the first one. Tomorrow is church and we are honoring our seniors after church. Monday is Christian Women . On Wed have a dental appt. So this is going to be a busy week. I didn't get a phone call from boys but did get an email, so guess that counts.

Sounds like your time with the city is coming to an end. Are you working until the end of the month or just til they hire someone? Have a good Sunday.

Cheri glad you got work behind you and now you can have a great time - Have Fun

Carol glad you got out and had a nice Mother's Day meal - I too would have taken the Rhubarb love that stuff. Sorry your boys have not said anything yet, they will at the last min.

Went to city job, got a lot done in the 3hrs I was there. They ended up with only one interview one of the gals that was to come got a job so they didn't have to interview her. They really like the guy they interviewed think he will get the job but they have a few more to do next week so time will tell. I think I am ready to say good bye to the job will hate not having the extra money but won't miss going to work and sitting all day. Came home got ready to go to VFW workshop. Got there ended up doing something totally different then what I had planed but it is done and no more worries. We ended up going to Amigo's for dinner and sat in our car to eat. Oh well that is how that goes. Came home watched a TV show and off to bed. Not sure what is going on in my head but can't sleep after going to bathroom at 1am. Think I am ready for someone else to worry about VFW stuff for our Local group but that is not going to happen this year for I'm pres so things have to get done. Have to leave for Fremont this morning for VFW meeting for Department so this one should be fun and a learning thing for me before I become NE Department Pres. Ok getting sleepy will take a nap before I have a 2hr drive. Have a great weekend.
Oh ya no plans here for Mother's Day told kids didn't want any gifts just a phone call if they remember.

Vicki, glad the sewing orders are starting to come in. That sounds good for the future. Hope you have a good time and meal when you and Del go out tonight. Have you any plans for Mother's Day. Glad the VFW meeting was short. Nice to get home earlier than planned.

Cheri, glad you got some more work done before leaving. Nice to have it done before you leave. Just have a good time. There is sure plenty of things to do there.

Went to dinner at Senior Center today. It was their Mother's Day dinner. They served tossed salad, mashed potatoes, California medley, meatloaf and for dessert they had a choice of rhubarb cake, carrot cake or a lemon dessert. I took the rhubarb but brought it home. I was just too full to eat it. Have no plans for Mother's day. Haven't heard from either of the boys so am assuming they don't plan to come.

Have a good weekend.

Hi all,

Well getting ready to go to airport again to leave for Vegas. Today while waiting in room for time to leave got some more work done. That was good. Now all ready for a meeting when I return. That is a good thing. Thanks guys I sure will have fun. I too hope I win, but as long as I have fun that is what matters. And being away from work is really all I need right now. Been crazy there.

Carol great job at Tops. So glad no gain. Keep up the good work. Sure wish I could say the same. Not. Oh well will keep trying. Glad you got your shopping done.

Vicki glad the meeting seems to be helping with getting jobs. Hope they come through. Good luck with that. Enjoy you dinner tonight. Going out is always fun. Hope the work thing goes well and they get someone hired now. Guess you might as well move on at this point.

Well gotta run. Have a good weekend all and talk later.

Cheri emoticon getting your letters done before you leave. Now have a safe trip emoticon and hope you win big. Just have fun

Carol emoticon on staying the same that is great keep up the good work. Really need you to come here and keep me on track. Glad you got your shopping done. Oh my that is a lot of snow for them, so glad it was not you or me. I will take the rain anytime.

Went to city job, was not busy at all so cleaned out my desk so ready to go when it is my last day. They got now 11 apps and so far only going to interview 4 but will decide later if they need to do more. Now kinda glad I won't be there with my sewing maybe taking off. I would really hope I get a lot of sewing jobs, and so far have got a few calls already. Came home seen Del mowed again, but maybe after I am not working so much I can mow instead of him, for I do love to mow on the rider. Would really like a new rider but will take what I can get for now. Found some leftover in the freezer before I went to work so they were thawed out so we had them for dinner. Then went to VFW meeting, and think that was the fasted meeting we had ever, 45min. Guess it pays to have things on paper ready to go. Came home watched the end of a show with Del and off to bed. Was up at 2 to use bathroom and couldn't get back to sleep tried for a hour decide just to get up. So here I am, may turn TV and then I will fall asleep again LOL Have to go to city job for a few hours while they do interviews then stop to pick up some sewing from a lady then home. Then off to Lincoln for a VFW thing we are working on posters for a festival. Then Del is taking me out for dinner. Not sure where but going out. So everyone have a great Weekend

Cheri, hope you have a good time. Is Mike meeting you there? Hope your flight was good and you win lots of money while there. Have fun. Wish I was with you.

Vicki, glad lots of people were interested in your sewing. Hope they come through now with jobs for you. Boy, if you do tents and quilts it should keep you busy. Good luck.

Well, I stayed the same at Tops, which was fine. Better than gaining. Just need to keep it up. Went out for breakfast with the gals and then stopped at store and picked up what I was going to get yesterday. Yes, the rain is better that snow. Northern Minnesota got 14 inches of snow yesterday. Better them than us.

Carol so glad you got good results with your test. Now you can relax for a while knowing your doing good with the pills. Sorry your getting so much rain, so are we but like Cheri said better then snow. You can always go shopping on a nice day. So keep dry kiddo.

Cheri glad you just about have all the letters done so you can just enjoy your trip. Glad your kids are taking your dog so you can just relax. Stop here if you want but just have a good time and we will be here when you get back.

Was a good turn out for the business meeting and I had a lot of people ask me if I could do this or that and said we would try. One asked if I could do tents and stuff and first I said maybe then as we were talking said if I had a older mach I could. Then as we were talking said I'll go get my mom's old mach then I can do tents stuff. So stopped at Dads got Mom's mach and stated to sew on it and the tension was bad but got it back up to where it needs to be so think I am ready for just about any kind of material. So now hope I get some sewing jobs. Everyone also wanted to know if I was going to do quilts? Said I could put them together but looking for a long arm quilting mach and a place to put it then I could do them. Everyone had good ideas now to just get a mach at my price. Came home worked on VFW stuff and baked a cake for city job and took all the old frostings out of the freezer and if they had ice on them got rid of them if not used them on the cake now that part of the freezer is cleaned out. Then Del came home he made porkchops for dinner and we watched a movie then off to bed. Slept great now city job today and VFW tonight. Have a great day

Hi all,

So went into work got most of the letters done. Just have a few left to do. Will do in morning before I leave then those will be done and no worries while gone. Came home got lawn mowed and then did my packing. So all set now. Will drop my little Holly off with son in afternoon after get back from work in morning. He will be here to get me for airport around 3. They stopped tonight to pick up their dog from me. They came in and all 4 of them were all tan. Looked so funny to see the little ones with a tan. They are just so stinkin cute. Was glad to see them I missed them while they were away. Now I leave and won't see them again til next week. lol

Vicki glad there were not as many towels as first thought. Glad they are done and the lady was happy. Hope going to that meeting drums up the business for you and it all works out well. Yep hopefully will be to busy to work anyway. Good luck. Glad cards was good.

Carol sorry weather so crummy. That stinks, but sure better then snow. right. lol Glad the coumadin Check went well. Glad it slowed up while you were out. Glad nothing that important needed that you had to start in yuck weather.

Welcome Renee!! Glad you decided to join in. Hope all the Dr. has to say is great news for you. Will put you in my prayers. Hope the cholesterol get under control. Have a great time visiting with your mom for mother's day! So glad your son is coming home safe and sound, and please thank him for his service.

Well guess that is all for now. Have a great one. Will stop in when I can. I am taking my laptop so should be able to stop in. We shall see how busy we are.

Talk soon

Not a nice day. It started raining early this morning and has been raining ever since, quite hard at times. Went and got my test on my coumadin. Thank goodness the rain let up a little at the time. My test was good, was at 2.4. They want it between 2 &3 so this was fine. I am to continue the same with my pills. Was going to stop at grocery store for a couple of things but decided there weren't things I really needed so decided to get them on a nicer day.

Vicki, glad you got the towels done and didn't have to do as many as you thought. Hope going to the Business group helps you drum up some more business. As usual you had a good time at cards. That is good.

Cheri glad you got your walk arounds done and hope you get all the letters done before you go so won't have that to worry about when you get back. But have a Fun and Safe trip

Carol glad you stopped in and hope all your test come back with good news

Renee so glad you could stop by and tell us how your doing. So glad to hear your Son will be coming home, Samuel won't be home until Oct, way to long to have to worry. But glad yours will be home and safe, please tell him Thank You for serving. Hope you can get the Dr to give you some good news. As for Cholesterol, I stop taking my pills for my neighbor told me to start putting Lemon Grass oil on the bottom of my left foot and that has helped a lot my test came way down. The good stuff anyway the other one I have to work on a little - was told to drink more water, maybe have a apple a day and add some cranberry jc to my drinking also. So will do those things and will have my blood tested again in a month. So let us know what you find out.

Miss counted the towels she told me wrong she had 10 towels for each person but really only had 9 towels total. But got them all done and they turned out pretty good. She stopped by and payed me, she was so glad they were all done. That is why I like being home, I can sew anytime I like so maybe not working for the city is going to be ok. Still would have liked being there just two days a week but life will go on. Maybe my sewing will be so busy won't have time to work for city, lets hope so. After she left picked up the house, to get ready for cards. Then Del was home from work, we had hamb for dinner but he didn't have any bread so he ran to wal-mart picked that up and other things he wanted and my meds. Then we had dinner and waited for the cards players. I didn't do to bad, didn't win but always lots of laughs. Had to have my capa to calm down and get sleepy then off to bed. Slept great now have to go to a meeting with a friend. This is a small town Business group, where I can tell them about my new home business. I would love to join but cost $500 a year and I can't afford that right now but I can get the word out, that is how I got some of my cleaning jobs last time and didn't join, so really hope I can get more sewing jobs just by going there today. Time will tell wish me luck. Ok need to get dressed and out the door.
Happy Hump Day

Hello, I haven't posted since I joined the team. My computer isn't liking sparkpeople right now. Not much is going on. We have had some nice weather and I have been able to take the dog for a walk in the mornings. Unfortunately, the bad weather is coming back on Thursday and suppose to last the weekend. I'm heading to Atlanta to spend Mother's Day with my Mom. Haven't been able to do that in a while. Waiting to hear back from my cardiologist. I had an echo Friday. Also, he is trying to get approval from insurance to change my cholesterol medicine. So far no luck. Hoping the doc won't make come in to the office for the results, I don't feel like driving to Nashville. That's about it. Except my son will be back from his deployment in 1 month. I can't wait.

Have a great evening.!

Vicki, I didn't do a whole lot yesterday which is the reason I didn't post anything. The weather yesterday and today has been just beautiful. Wish it would last for awhile, but they are talking about rain for tonight and tomorrow. Today I ran to the bank to put interest payments in the scholarship fund which I handle for church. I also received a machine that cleans my C-Pap machine so put it together and then clean the tubing and mask. Sure smells different. Tomorrow I have to go and have my cumadin check. Sure doesn't seem like a month already. Then Thurs. is Tops and Friday have Mothers' Day dinner at the senior center. No plans at present for the weekend.

Sorry you will soon be done with the city. Sure you will miss the job and the people. Boy, the lady must think you are able to use a magic wand to do your sewing to do 20 in that short of time. Hope you do well at cards.
