We took our motorhome to our Moose Lodge on Friday. They had salsa lessons and a taco bar. It was so much fun. Spent Saturday and Sunday putting together a play system for the kids at the Lodge. Today is my bowling day.

Dee, I remembered yesterday. That little stinker just loves to be held. That or he is lazy! lol I like to think he just loves me to hold him. Which he does most of the time. Sometimes he is lazy! We went over yesterday and cooked out and watched the boys swim. They are so darn fun to be with. Missy's mom and step-dad are in town so it was a great evening spent with them as well. Today, Missy and I are going to a craft show. Her mom is leaving this morning so we are off running. LOL

Have a great day all

Good morning! Happy Labor Day! Nothing much to report from my neck of the woods. Shawn is off work today, and we'll probably grill hamburgers and watch some baseball on TV, but that's about it for my day. Just relaxing.

That's a beautiful picture, Dee. I wish I was there.

Have a wonderful day!

Kim remember to use your left arm when wrangling that dear Leo! I'm glad to hear you have a good strong heart.

Good luck in the job search Stephanie.

Enjoy our last few days in Paris and prepare for the Fall Challenge! I've enjoyed getting to know all of you in the Paris Guest House, but hope we can get more active in the challenges together.

Kim - I'm so glad the test didn't reveal any abnormalities. Such a blessing! Take it easy and take care of yourself.

Tracy - I hope your husband is able to get the help he needs. I haven't been able to enjoy a Godzilla movie since I was a teenager. Those were the good ones way back then.

Brenda - That's great the neuropathy pain is gone. I apologize if I missed this somewhere, but are you a diabetic?

Laura - Thank you. I've been checking around for other jobs in the area, but so far I've only come across fast food restaurant openings, and I don't want to do that. (I have enough problems being around food right now). I have some friends and family members checking around for me too, so hopefully I'll find something soon.

Hello Wendi and Jill!

Well good news bad news. It's not my heart causing the issue. That's the good news bad news noone knows what it is so we start over. BUT it's nothing that is going to kill me. Said my heart is good and strong. I just have to live with afib or a really fast heart rate. Could be I have always had it. They were able to go in through my wrist which was great in and out in under an hour. And I didn't have to lay flat for 6 hours. I however am not suppose to use my right arm for 24 hours and can't use it to pick up Leo for a week. Good thing I have my other arm!

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers my dear friends. I appreciate them!

Hi all. Sorry for not being around. School is back in session so it got to be a crazy week.

It is time to wrap up our time in Paris. With it being the holiday weekend, I won't make anyone leave Paris until the end of the holiday so take some time this weekend to be a true Parisian. Enjoy life! Wear cute outfits. Find a sidewalk cafť and read a good book or people watch with a good cup of coffee. Think about all of the places we visited this month. What are similar places near where you live? How about making a day trip this weekend.

I will have our Fall-themed boards up by the end of the holiday weekend. So indulge in yourself this weekend. Have that picnic in the park or find an outdoor market to wander through and have a wonderful long weekend!

May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.

United we stand. Divided we fall.

Stephanie - sorry you didn't get the job. I know exactly what you are going through, but keep trying. It took me 2 years to get the job I wanted even if it meant taking a job that provided a check while I kept looking. I couldn't even count the number of resumes and applications I put out in that year's time. There are a lot of great resources out there that can help you with your search. Keep an open mind and look at all possibilities. You may find something you weren't even aware existed but could become your dream job. Look at businesses that interest you or that has a great reputation as a good place to work. You'll find what you are looking for. BIG HUGS!!!! You got this!

Somehow this thread got lost!

Tracy - Glad you got to visit your parents. Good luck with your MRI Sunday! I don't know about the Korean spa washing my books and crannies! LOL

Kim - Glad the nitro is helping some. Hope you get to go tomorrow! Good luck!

Stephanie - Sorry you didn't get the job, but the perfect job is out there for you!

Dee - That spa looks wonderful...count me in!

Jill - All those hernia surgeries! Poor thing! Hope this one gets fixed soon!

Wendi - Such a busy gal...you need to relax! Enjoy the long weekend at the lake!

I hope I caught up with you all! The neuropathy pain lasted 3 days. Irritating! It's gone now, but I'm going to check with my doc to see what else I can do to help.

Nothing else new this week...just celebrating birthdays and overeating! Yikes! Hope I just stayed the same for tomorrow's weigh in.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Sorry about not getting that job. I'm sure there is something out there that will fit you! Sometimes its hard to see that now..but have faith emoticon

I couldn't get into the Godzilla movie. I may have just been too tired to pay attention. Maybe try it again some day. Hubby saw his new psych doctor the other day. So now he has the psychologist (who also manages his meds) and a psychiatrist. I hope he will be able to talk about his past and someday let go of all the hurt and wrongs from his youth. That is their hope anyways. But he's dealing with depression right now too...so that's both of us on the depression bus.

I woke up thinking today was Friday and I was super happy...until I remembered that I heard the garbage truck this morning...so hope not Friday.

UPDATE: I didn't get the job. The letter came in the mail today. Feeling very depressed right now. I'm starting to wonder if there's anything I'm good at or capable of besides being a stay-at-home-mom and wife. Sorry to be such a downer. I'll have my pity party and get over it, like I always do.

Good morning, friends. I wish I had something new to share, but there's nothing going on in my neck of the woods, as usual. Still no word from the library job. I appreciate the positive thoughts and encouragement, but I really think someone else was hired. The job starts September 1st, so I believe I would've heard something by now. I'm not giving up though. I'll keep looking.

Wendi - Your post reminded me so much of our church. I've been going to this church for 23 years, and this is the worst I've ever seen it. Our newest pastor has been with us three years, and he's completely divided the whole church. Since he's been here, our congregation has dropped from over 100 in attendance during the morning worship service to about 25 (on a good Sunday). We've decided we're going to look for another church after this year, if things don't improve. It's a long, drawn-out story, but it's just one huge mess right now. I understand how you feel about Joel. I cried like a baby when we moved Matthew to college. I know It's going to be worse for me when Jacob leaves for boot camp. That Bible study sounds like something I desperately need and would really enjoy. I wish I lived closer and we could go together.

Dee - Loving all these pictures. I would love a spa day. I'll be 50 years old next year, and I've never been to a spa. I bet it's awesome.

Brenda - I'm sorry about the neuropathy pain. How are you feeling today?

Tracy - Sending a ton of hugs and prayers your way for your MRI. Please keep us posted. How was the new Godzilla movie?

Jill - Hugs to you too! My husband has had a hiatal hernia for several years now, but so far he's managed to avoid surgery. I want to see Overcomer. I bet it's a wonderful movie.

Kim - I haven't watched 13 Reasons Why, but I've heard a lot about it. That's so sweet about Kaitlyn and Leo. I'm glad she'll be there with you tomorrow. Wish I could give you a gigantic hug right now. Sending a gazillion hugs and prayers your way.

Hello Laura, Amanda, and Amber!

Have a great day!

Stephanie

Stephanie, still have my fingers crossed for you. You never know.,

Tracy, how was the movie?

Dee, lets go. I am ready for a spa day!

Jill and Wendi, I havenít heard anything one way or another so I am hoping itís a go. I am sure they will call me today at some point.

Jill, ouch my dear. What are they going to do? Are they going to fix it? Can they? You will be in my thoughts my dear.

Wendi, I may join you are the sugar free September. I have got to get this weight off somehow. UGH


Kaitlyn came home last night so she will be here for my procedure. Leo was so excited when he seen her he screamed and went running and gave her the biggest hug. It was so sweet and let me tell you he NEVER does this with anyone except Papaw and me. He doesnít like people so that was HUGE and made her night. He is a funny kid. He doesnít even speak to his momís mom for days after she is here and he ďseesĒ her all the time on facetime. Kaitlyn never. LOL

Oh well, I think we are going to shop a bit this evening. Then just relax for tomorrow. UGH Have a great day everyone

would LOVE a spa day!!! I really wanted to go back to the Olympus spa (Korean) for my birthday next month. But am not sure since I've put on so much weight since I went in April. The spa is different in that you check in and all your clothes go in a locker and you wear only a robe while there. The pools and the dry and wet saunas are naked - no one can wear clothes. The are other rooms where you wear just your robe. It is really nice there. After a while of being naked you don't feel so self conscious - I was really surprised. Last time I had a body scrub and moisturizing with facial. It was amazing...but again, lined up on padded beds all naked and some little lady scrubs all the nooks and crannies..lol

Hey all!

Jill-that stinks....hope it settles down with weight loss.

Kim-is it a go for this Friday? Been thinking of you.

Stephanie-I am holding out hope that you get the job.

Tracy-I don't watch many movies but hubby started watching The Shooter series on Netflix. That's a good one. Hope you are feeling better.

Dee- I could use a spa week or did you say day? I could use a week!

We had a meeting at the church to call a new pastor last night. Oof. The whole thing got heated. There is a lot of brokedness that needs to repaired among the congregation. Our last pastor left a year and half ago. He resigned (forced to) because of adultery. It was a whole scandal but fast forward to now and it has been a process just to get here. Lots of heated discussion and frustration. Anyway, somehow we had a majority to extend a call so we will see where it goes from there. Church is supposed to feel comfortable but it was far from that last night. UGH! We ended up at a lounge for drinks after.

I'm also prepping for our boys traveling basketball season. Got shirt orders and fundraisers to plan. I'm tired and sometimes I really wish I was back to being not involved. It can be exhausting!

Anyway, I'll quit my complaining to you guys. I am planning on doing a sugar free September to get me back on the right track. I have fallen so far off the wagon, it even circled back and ran over me a couple times. BUT I will get back on! Spending the long weekend at the lake and just relaxing!! (i hope)

Have a great day everyone!

Dee I definitely could use that spa day. Starting to feel better. Went to the dr yesterday and think I have a hiatal hernia. When I had that huge mass removed in 2013 the dr told me at that time that they had thinned or stretched the lining of my stomach (don't ask me how that happened) so as a result I have had about 6 hernia repairs over the years and he said to expect more. But this one is different because it is high and hurt like hell. Guess it is when your stomach pokes through your diaphragm in your chest. I definitely have been eating below calories so far this week but haven't moved except for bowling on Monday. Really haven't done much of anything but read my book. Diet and losing weight might help so I can hold off surgery for now.

Stephanie don't count it out yet. Hoping you hear something today.

Tracy that is one thing we rarely do is watch movies. Dean has FOX news on most of the time and I either read or play on my I-Pad. I did go to the movie Overcomer with my son, wife and grandkids last Friday. Loved it.

Kim still no word on the date for the procedure or is it a go for this Friday?

Wendi glad everyone is settled and you can get back into a routine.

Brenda how are you doing this week?

Brenda, I hope you have partied your tushie off today! Happy Birthday to you my dear.!


Thanks Stephanie. I tried to get it switched up from this Friday to an earlier date. But insurance still hasnít approved it. They are driving me nuts. The doc did call in nitro pills today and they seem to be helping with he pain in my chest. Any news on the job? Been keeping my fingers crossed.

Wendi, Darn kids. They make you cry too much donít they? I did the exact same thing when I took Kaitlyn, I waited till I got in the car and cried all the way home 4 hour drive was a great cry. LOL Good for you for getting out of your comfort zone. I seen where my Y is starting a weight loss challenge in Sept. I think I am going to join. WAY outta my comfort zone. What is it with you and Hail that is crazy. Glad that you didnít have too much damage and you are all safe. Goodness.

Jill, Thank you. That truly means a lot to me. What have you been up to my friend?

Tracy, I am thinking about you my dear.

Does anyone watch 13 Reasons Why on Netflix? I know itís geared toward teens but shew it is heart wrenching.

I ended up not Ubering over the weekend. I just did the one trip for friends and visited my parents. It was really nice getting to have dinner and hangout with them. It was really hard though having my parents get stuff for me. They keep drinks out in cooler in the garage, so mom went and got me bottle of water...thats the stuff I'm used to doing for them. emoticon

I was really tired on Saturday, so I just stayed home and rested all weekend. I did do my laundry yesterday...but that was the extent of things..lol I'm hoping to have more stamina so I get drive some this week.

I'm anxious for my MRI on Sunday....I'm so tired of being broken!

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I'm relaxing today... hardly slept last night with stabbing neuropathy pain in my foot. It still hasn't gone away, but I'm going to try the pool and see if that helps. I definitely look and feel my age today! LOL

Stephanie I sure hope you hear something today. Must be nerve wracking waiting to hear something.

Wendi is your life slowing down yet? Both older boys all settled in? Enjoy the lake for the long weekend ahead.

Kim I am always thinking about you and praying for your health. Hoping the insurance crap gets sorted out and you are good to go this Friday.

Laura are you back at school after Labor Day? Juggling everything can be so stressful but the end is in sight.

Dee enjoy your last week before work starts. I know I am a Debbie Downer by bringing up the W word.

Tracy I really hope you begin to get some relief. How did the Uber go this past weekend?

Amanda and Amber are you out there!!

Good Morning Everyone!

Well got Joel all delivered to college, got my crying out of the way on the way home and prayed that all would be great for him! He hasn't called and asked to come home yet so that's a good sign!

Busy start to the week as we have meetings tonight and tomorrow and I'm also starting a bible study tomorrow. It's call Finding Self Worth in Christ. I'm really looking forward to it. Going out of my comfort zone though. Not big on going to things by myself but it's not like I don't know these women but it's just hard to put myself out there. It's a whole mental thing. I'm working on it.

Looking forward to September though and getting into a good routine and back to losing some weight. It has been a busy and emotional summer, let me tell you! Of course, I have and you all know it! Thank you for supporting me!

One more weather note......yesterday on our way home we stopped to drop off our oldest son in the town he lives and got stuck in a 25 minute hail storm. Hail was up to ping pong ball size. Our car has some dings for sure and it put a hole in the door visor but did NOT break the windows so very grateful for that. Let me tell you.....it is very loud when hailing on one's car and you are inside. Just thankful it wasn't worse!

So I will keep on plugging along!

Have a great day everyone!

Good evening, friends! I hope you've all had a terrific weekend. Mine has been good but busy, as usual. I hope I find out something - good or bad - about the library job tomorrow or Tuesday, so I can stop worrying about it so much. I hate long waits for news. I'll let you know as soon as I hear from the director.

Kim - How frustrating!! I'm so sorry you're having a rough time with the insurance company. Sending a ton of hugs and love your way!

Tracy - I'm glad your legs are feeling stronger. During the last month of my pregnancy with Jacob, he was (literally) on my nerves, and I had to be induced two weeks early. He was pinching my sciatic nerve, and I couldn't walk or even stand up straight. It was a horrible feeling. I hope you continue to improve.

Dee - Those mini Klondike bars sound delicious. I can't keep sweets in our house, because they're such a red-light food for me - especially ice cream. I admire your willpower.

Brenda - I hope you have a wonderful birthday tomorrow!

They don't care that is what bothers me the most. I have been doing very little so I am doing my best to take care of me.

Ooh where did you find Klondike mini bars? I will have to check out the grocery today when I go. I use to love those.

Doesn't the insurance company know that "Stress" is bad for your heart. I hope it all gets straightened out immediately. Take care of my friend today.

Good health and happy day wishes to the rest of you. emoticon emoticon

I'm going with the less not deprivation way of dieting. I bought a package of Klondike mini snack bars to satisfy my sweet tooth. 120 calories, 5 g. fat, 11 g. sugar. Delicious chocolate shell with chilly vanilla inside.

Wow...cannot believe insurance would deny that! Not like its cosmetic surgery! how frustrating

My legs feel stronger today. I do believe it all relates to the sciatic nerve - at least that the nerve I'm guessing is being pinched. Sometimes if I stretch my back it shoots electricity out there.

I get to visit my parents tonight. A friend and her "crew" are going to a concert at one of our local fairs tonight - happens to be in the small town where my parents live. So I will Uber them up there and visit and then Uber them back. Its about 45 min drive. This will be a good test for my back, will be my longest time behind the wheel at one time in many weeks. I hope it does well so that I can Uber some tomorrow too. We really need the $.

All bosses are out today and busy-body co-worker has the afternoon off (they went to the fair) so its super quiet at work.

I have eaten horrible this week. Too much eating out because I haven't been able to be in the kitchen much, and DH is useless in the kitchen - love him, but geez.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!! emoticon emoticon

Good morning, friends! Just checking in before the busy weekend starts. I've been sitting on pins and needles waiting for a phone call from the library director, even though she told me I won't find out anything until next week. I'm trying SO hard not to get my hopes up, because I'm sure there were a bunch of applicants with college degrees or some former teachers who have a bigger chance of getting the job than I do. If I don't get it, then I'll just keep looking.

Jill - I won't find out anything until next Monday or Tuesday. I turn 50 next year, and I have a feeling it's going to hit me hard too. Forty wasn't so bad, but turning 30 was awful. I think I cried for a solid week. It's ridiculous, I know, but for some reason it really bothered me.

Laura - I'm glad work is working out so well and you didn't have to endure jury duty. I haven't done that yet (knock on wood), but I'm sure my time is coming. Have fun at the movies! I haven't seen any of the Fast and Furious franchise, but my husband and sons have.

Brenda - I love Jason Statham too. YUM! I just watched him a couple of weeks ago in The Meg. I hope you have a great time with your mom. Happy Birthday to her!

Kim - Poor Leo! I bet that hurt. I'm sorry you didn't get the test results you wanted and they couldn't do the procedure today. Insurance is such a huge pain in the behind! Heart disease runs in my family too. Three on my mother's side have died from heart attacks - my grandmother at 59, my uncle at 49, and another uncle at 47. And my mother had double bypass surgery when she was 55 years old. I've been taking a statin and baby aspirin for several years now. I'm sending a ton of hugs, love, and prayers your way.

Wendi - Great picture! Jack is so handsome!

Tracy - I'm so sorry you're struggling. I wish I knew what to say to help you feel better. Continued prayers!

Hope you all have a good weekend!

Stephanie

Brenda, Happy Birthday to you mom. I know you are going to have a wonderful party for her!

Heart disease runs in my family as well. My papaw had a massive heart attack and passed at 65, my daddy had his first one at 45 and the last and final one at 50. My brother had to have double bypass at 45 so I knew I was at risk. And I know this heart cath will help. I am ready to get it over with and soooo glad we caught it early! Noone has time for a heart attack. I am too busy with my babies! What is wrong with the dmv it's nuts how long you have to wait at that place I renewed mine a month ago and still haven't gotten it in the mail.I have to call them today.

Kim - I'm sorry about the test results. My DH and I have heart disease in our family as well. Both of us take a statin, do you? I had to revise my response because I mentioned the angioplasty! Both of our dad's had that and stents. Simple procedures, so keep positive... it's great you're finding out now before a heart attack. Sending you prayers...I know you'll do great!

Wendi - Such a handsome young man! I remember Kevin at that age...so cute. Half boy/half young man...we used to call him the Manchild!

Jill - I'll be 59 and my DH is turning 60 in a few days and it's hard to wrap our heads around it too! We don't feel or look that age and how did the time fly by that fast?? I guess it's great that we don't act or feel like our age! I don't know about hubby, but I'm planning on living to 100! LOL

Tracy - I'm sorry you're still having leg problems. It could be your sciatic nerve. I hope you get answers soon and are on the road to recovery! Keep positive and just do what you can. Sending prayers your way.

I had to renew my driver's license, so that was 2 hours waiting in a line or sitting! Did the rest of my errands afterward since it was late in the day. Tomorrow is busy...last bit of cleaning and some food prep. It's also my Mom's actual birthday... she'll be 85! We'll be hanging out and have some fun!

Good luck on weigh ins!

Jill girlfriend, you are going to rock being 60! I know you are!!

Well, the doctor called me. I have Coronary Heart Disease. I will be having a angiogram/angioplasty at 8:30 in the morning not looking forward to that at all but I am praying it helps. I just want to feel better ya know? So if I am not on here this weekend you will know why. Hubby is a hot mess worried sick, I am not really too worried. I have faith in the doctor. He will fix me!


Insurance denied my surgery, so they pushed it back to next Friday to give the doctor time to fight with them. Seriously, why? I mean how dumb right? GRR. OH well I will be fine I am sure.

emoticon Sorry....I'm around, just not applying myself very well. Just trying to get through each day as best as I can.

Seems to be every other day is good/bad. Today not so good. Legs hurt and feel really weak. Take my cane everywhere with me now. Just not steady enough on my feet without it. During all this stuff with my legs and the muscles, I realized that I can no longer stand on my toes. That was part of the testing that the new dr did, and my first visit I could do it with both legs, just the left was weaker, But now I cannot get either leg to do it...oddest thing. I figure even with the MRI on 9/1 it will most likely be a month yet before I get any relief from one thing or another depending on what he wants to do for treatment. Really fighting depression.

I went to bed at 8:15 last night....just feel exhausted. Not sure how I can boost my stamina, but I keep pushing.

Kim heart disease is one of my biggest fears as I have such a strong family history. Maybe they might possibly put a stent in to help you along. Praying for you.

Any word on the job yet Stephanie?

Laura thanks for the birthday wishes. I always struggle when I hit a new decade. 40 was hard, 50 was harder and didn't really think 60 was going to bother me but for some reason I have really struggled with being that old. I honestly feel and act like I am so much younger. Really difficult to wrap my head around this.

Brenda enjoy your birthday celebrations this weekend.

Dee how you doing? Tracy are you feeling better?

Sorry I've been MIA! I have some catching up to do. Just know that you are all in my prayers every night! Been busy getting kids ready for school. Jack's 1st day today--7th grade! We take Joel to college on Saturday. So next week I'm hoping will be a bit calmer and I will get back here! Love you all!

Thanks girls. Those boys are my why that is for sure. You should see poor Leo. He tripped and fell over a bike at school and busted his face up pretty good. Heís got a huge bump on his forehead and his nose is all scuffed up. Sad thing is I picked up Lukie yesterday but not Leo because mommy wanted him to stay because it was his absolutely favorite teachers last day. And he got hurt man do I feel horrible. That baby is just a clutz. I picked up Lukie because he had soccer and Missy knew she wouldnít get off in time to take him. Good thing mommy works there too and was able to comfort him.

I got some of my test results back. The one piece of the CT they were able to do doesnít sounds good. Here is what it says.. Coronary artery calcium score is 74. This places the patient into the 90th percentile in comparison to a group of patient's asymptomatic for coronary artery disease with the same age and gender. This means that 90% of females aged 46-50 had calcium scores lower than this patient.

Coronary atherosclerosis present, limited amount. Intermediate risk of cardiovascular disease.

Coronary CTA could not be performed due to elevated heart rate.
I have not a clue what this means as I havenít heard back from the doc so we shall see right?


Stephanie, I will be sending good vibes, hopefully you get the job!

Dee, I missed you while you were on vacation. Did you have a great time with your sister? Iím guessing mom was excused from Jury Duty lol so funny.

Jill, thanks those stinky little boys are so funny. Lukie was riding Leoís bike and he wanted it so he just jumped right on and held on then they stared hugging and kissing, Lukie is such a great big brother that is for sure. And those two love each other, I hope they always stay this close.

Laura, Doug would love nothing more than to do that, but I am sure that wonít happen at least not until grandpa gets custody which he is trying to do. Itís a really sad situation for that child that is for sure. Can you maybe make some healthy ďlunchablesĒ to take with you for lunch? Glad things are going so well. That is awesome!

Brenda, thanks. Love those stinky little boys that is for sure.

Stephanie - So glad you had a great interview... hope you get the job!

Laura - I'd go see Hobbs and Shaw with you! I love Jason Statham and The Rock!

I went grocery shopping with my mom and sis for the birthday party at our house on Saturday. Went to Costco and the grocery store...took a long time, but got everything!

Jill - Happy belated birthday! I can't keep up with all you August babies! Hope you had a wonderful day!!!

Kim - I agree - the poor kid. It is probably hard to grow up with that type of chaos around you 24/7. I'd ignore her, but sit down with the kid for a heart to heart to make sure that he understands what happened. I'm sure looney tunes is feeding him all sorts of nonsense.

Brenda - I think that I'm going to sneak off to a movie after work on Friday by myself for a moment of relaxation. I think I'm going to see Hobbs and Shaw. Don't know why, but I got into the Fast and Furious series and no one else wants to see it with me.

Did get called for Jury duty and was even picked for a 3 day trial. Then the guy pressing the charges never showed so we were all excused. Was suppose to be an extortion case. It looked like it could be another looney tunes situation in court. Even the judge thought the case would probably be a drama-fest. At least the county can't call me for at least 2 years. Fed can still call me though. Work was very understanding.

New job is going well. I'm still trying to get my nights and days turned around and get a routine down. Thank goodness I haven't had class this week. Gives me a chance to work on things at home. I'm struggling most with meal time and what to take for lunch. We have a cafeteria but it is a hike to get there. There is a couple of satellite cafes but only has vendo food. So I'm back to packing my lunch again. I just need to pack it the night before so I can just throw it in my bag in the morning. We have a microwave and fridge in our office area so I can utilize those. I'm open to ideas.

I know I'm late with the goodies from last week, but I'll do my best to have those out tomorrow along with the final week's Paris challenges.

Hello friends! Thank you all for the positive thoughts and prayers. I feel like the interview went really well, but I wonít know anything until next week. I was interviewed by the library branch manager and the children's services director, and they asked some tough questions. I also had to read a childrenís book to them like I would to a group of kids. That was interesting. LOL. Anyway, I did the best I could, and Iím content with that, no matter what happens.

Jill - Seems like the only movies I get to watch are Disney too. Oh, and Marvel Comics! Ahhh...life with boys. LOL. Did you have a good birthday?

Brenda - I don't believe I've heard of that movie. Who stars in it?

Kim - What a precious picture! They are adorable. I know they make you so proud.

Dee - I would love to take a book and relax at a Paris cafe. I bet it's so peaceful.

Have a wonderful afternoon!

Kim always love pictures of those babies. They are so darn cute.

Reaching 60 has me thinking hard about where I went to be in 10 years. I honestly don't know how the years have snuck up on me. I know there is so much future for me and I need to get my stuff together or the coming years will just be harder on me.

Have a wonderful Wednesday to all of you.

Kim -- loved the picture of your grand boys! So cute.
Stephanie -- how'd the job interview go? We'd be working in the same field.
Laura -- here's a little funny about jury duty. My mother was living in an assisted living home and had Alzheimer's Disease. She was called for jury duty. We just had to laugh.
Brenda -- I want to see that movie. Sounds great. Pass the SkinnyPop popcorn.

How about a little relaxing moment at a Paris Cafe?

Jill, I hope you get to celebrate when hubby gets home! I am with you on Jury Duty, I donít think I would mind if I didnít have to go into the really bad part of town to do it.

Brenda, thanks! We tried that we told her he could still be part of the team if grandpa brought him but that she wasnít allowed to be there and that was a no go. Plus honestly I feel bad for the child but all the lies she told about me on her court papers, I really donít want my hubby to have to deal with it. They her really bad and truly lies everything on the paperwork I could just see her saying Doug did this or that you know?

Well, I am taking a folding table to work with me today to sorta put my office back together at least get it to where I can work today. LOL Hopefully our new desks will be here the first of next week. My fingers are crossed.

Where is everyone hiding? I know this is going to be sideways but I have to show you all my heart. These two def own it. And they are truly my stress relief~

Jill - HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hope you have a wonderful time celebrating!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Kim - Hope your heart rate goes down with the new medicine. As for Looney Toons...is there some way her son can be on the team, but she can't be there or involved? Sending prayers!

Stephanie - Good luck on your job interview...how exciting! Don't stress about it...be yourself and you'll do great!

For those who asked, I saw the movie "Where Did You Go, Bernadette?". Loved it... it's a drama with a little mystery.

Let's have a fantastic week!

Thanks for the birthday wishes. My husband is working out of town until Thursday so just me today.

Stephanie good luck on the interview. I havenít interviewed for years either so would be nervous also. Let us know how it goes.

Kim boo on the test. Donít think I could get my heart rate that low either. Praying this new medicine works for you. Sure Looney and work are raising your stress also.

Laura I know jury duty is our civic duty and should be glad we have the jury system we do but I hate when I am called for jury duty. How is the new job?

Tracy hope today is a good day and the cane is helping.

Brenda seems the only movies I see are Disney with the grandkids. Still wishing I had your pool. emoticon

Wendi, Dee, Amber, and Amanda where are you? emoticon

Good morning, friends! I hope you're having a great week! I received a call from the library director yesterday, and I have an interview with her tomorrow morning about the children's librarian position I applied for. I'd appreciate any positive thoughts and prayers you could send my way. I'm SO nervous! I haven't interviewed for a job in several years. I hope I don't blow it.

Happy Birthday, Jill! Have a fabulous day!

Tracy - My goodness! When it rains it pours, doesn't it? I'm so sorry you've been struggling. I'm sending a ton of hugs, love, and prayers to you. I agree with Laura about the shower chair. We used one when Jacob had his knee surgery last November, and it really helped.

Kim - Oh yes, I agree with your therapist. That woman is definitely a paranoid schizophrenic. I'm glad you've kept every email. I just wish the law would do something about her before she hurts someone. I'm sending a ton of hugs, love, and prayers to you too. I know it's emotionally and physically draining dealing with someone like her. Do you have a gun, taser, or anything else to protect yourself with?

Brenda - What movie did you see? We rented Avengers Endgame a few nights ago and watched it with the boys while Matthew was home. I usually don't get into superhero movies, but it was pretty good.

Laura - Ewwww...jury duty. I hate you're having to deal with that right now. Are you through or do you have to go back?

Wendi - Did you have a good time at the lake?

Hello Dee, Amber, and Amanda! (Did I miss anyone?) Have a wonderful day!

Stephanie

Jill, Happy Birthday my dear. Nope not yet they are laying the carpet yesterday and suppose to finish up today. So hopefully tomorrow. Well maybe I am not sure when my new desk is coming but I have tons of payroll to do so hopefully by Friday. UGH

Laura, Do they not know you donít have time for Jury Duty right now? Goodness. Bless your heart

Well, I went to have the CTA scan done yesterday, they hooked me up and we got started then well my heart rate refused to go down UGH So I have to start new medicine and see if that will get it down where they need it to be to do the test. It has to be between 50 and 60 to do the test and mine wouldnít go below 70 even after 3 different shots to get it down. Pain in the tush!

The crazy continues. Looney Toons sent a voice text to one of the board members asking them to ask Doug if her son can come back and play. Apparently he is lying to classmates saying he was kicked off the team and she doesnít want him lying. Umm tell him the truth that you pulled him off the team. I was livid why in the world would she think they would allow her to come back after what she tried to do to me? Seriously. I truly feel bad for the child but, she Is nuts if she thinks anyone will allow her back after what she did. They are just going to attempt to ignore her we shall see how that goes.

Busy weekend and Jury duty today so I'll get caught up on Tuesday.

May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.

Tracy sometimes those pity parties help a lot - my husband doesn't understand but a good cry often helps a lot. So glad you are feeling somewhat better.

Dee Mexico is some distance from Paris - definitely took a wrong turn. Enjoy the time you have left with your sister.

Kim were you able to put your office back together today.

Had a great weekend - so much fun to have lunch with the girls and catch up. Spent Friday and Saturday night camping and just kicked back yesterday.

It is going to be a great week.

Jill

I'm actually happy for a new week. I am going to try and make it better than last week. Starting off in a good mood. Had a huge pity party over the weekend...lots of crying and eating. My hubby's head dr removed one of his bipolar meds - so he was going through med withdrawals and felt horrible. It was just an ugly weekend at our home. But I rested tons so I think that has helped my back and legs.

My legs feel a little stronger today. I bought a cane yesterday. I know it will help, but still having a hard time wrapping my head around it.

I hope everyone has a good day! emoticon

Stay safe!

We had a fun weekend. Yesterday we went to our son & DIL's garage sale, saw a movie, out to dinner, then a night swim with Mom sis and her friend. Since yesterday was so busy, today we just relaxed on our own.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Stephanie, that is exactly what I have been saying all along she is going to either hurt or kill someone and there is nothing anyone will do other then call another agency to deal with her. Because she hasnít threatened anyone bodily harm. She truly needs mental help.

Thanks Laura, I am trying I just donít understand her level of crazy I guess. But man I was talking to my therapist about her and she thinks she is paranoid schizophrenic. And is most likely not taking her meds.

Jill, you are going to have a great time with your girlfriends. How fun.

Wendi, I hope you are having a great time at the lake. This lady is nuts. The lies that she wrote in this thing is beyond bizarre. I am so glad that I have kept every single email from her as well as the one I sent and I was smart enough to send it not just to her but to all the parents. There is no way she can turn it around and say I said something I didnít. Today is the first real game so we are all hoping and praying she doesnít show up. But if she does we have the right to call the police and have her removed. The school leased the fields and the school grounds to us so we could legally get rid of her.

Brenda, Bunco sounds so fun. I miss playing cards with friends.
I always thought that the police could /would do something but their hands are apparently tied. I am meeting with our tax attorney with a client on Tuesday next week and I am going to ask her her opinion (she does more than tax law) to see what if anything she thinks I can do. I just want the crazy to stop. It scares me to death she knows where I live.

Well, I better get my buns moving I need to clean house and then visit a client before I go to football this morning. Have a great day all.

Played bunco tonight with my friends. Didn't win any money, but had lots of fun!

Kim - Sweet Pickled Pineapples! That woman needs help! Maybe a restraining order would help, but I hope they take her in to get evaluated. The police should do something about it!

Tracy - I'm glad you finally have an appointment...I hope they figure it out. I used a cane, a walker, wheelchair or scooter with my knee replacement...any or all of those would help you. Take care!

Hi to all and enjoy the weekend!!

Hey! Quick hello before we head to the lake. Only for 1 night though. Gotta get this kid ready to go to college. He leaves next Saturday and he is working until Friday!

Kim- WOW oh WOW! I can't believe that crazy would file a 7 page report on you. So insane! And to just make up crap! WOW! I would be overly pissed!! Glad you filed charges.....hope she stays away and they get her some help. Her poor kids!

Tracy- Hope they get things figured out for you. You will get through it but it is hard when your income is suffering. Take care of you!

Everyone else---have a great weekend!
