well it has slipped up on me again time to bid you all sweet dreams and good night, Hope to meet you all here in the morning and in good health.

I'm off to bed soon.  Our Area Agency on Aging is running a program tomorrow morning and Friday morning called Healthy Steps for Older Adults.  I signed up for it and it's at 9:30 tomorrow.  I'm looking forward to this.  So often they have things that look intrestng to me and I'm not able to go but I'm off tomorrow and I got someone to work my hours on Friday so I can attend both sessions.  I says that you will learn how to prevent falls and how to stay active.  Each session is 3 hours long and they include Fall risk screening, exercise demonstrations, b book, resource information, healthy snacks and door prizes.  And everyone is supposed to "wear comfortable shoes".  I think it sounds interesting.  And there's more than one other person in S&F who could use this class!  I wish I could take all of you with me!  And it's FREE!

Now I'm taking the doggies out one last time and then heading for bed.  I wish you all a peaceful night and a happy tomorrow  And may God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone, I hope today will be a repeat of yesterday, got up to 70° and no rain. Spent a couple of hours outside before CNA got here and when she left I went out again. Quite a few were on the porch and it was almost like it was when I first moved here. I think we were all waiting for the spring weather to get here and get out in the fresh air. Even when it is cold I try to get out for a bit of walking and fresh air. I would like doing it when it is snowing but do not know how the rollator would handle then. The maintenance man does keep the walkways clear, even in the middle of the night he would be out every hour with his little plow.

LLOYD  last year we did have a meeting with someone from the main office here and the witch had calmed down for awhile but is starting up again. She would be happy if we stayed in our apartments and paid our rent as long and she had nothing to do with us. The owners like her because she saves them moneys at the end of the year. Great comment about friends and one enemy. So true.

JANE  how wonderful for that program that will make your life better. I dislike finding a new doctor. I could find one in the city but want one close to home. I see a NP now, only one doctor and she is very busy so has several NPs to help. I like the one I see very much, she takes time to‪ liston. She has helped me more that the 2 doctors I had after I retired, after 10 years with both of them I thought it was time to find someone who did not rush and not listen.

JOY  we all feel that the manager here just not like the elderly and does not know how to treat us. Never a smile or a good morning from her. She takes a 2 hour lunch, comes in late and leaves early. She is supposed to work 8 hours but hardly works 6. The maintenance man at times works a lot of over time but she will not pay him time and a half. The office told her he deserves that but she will not do it. That is one way she saves the company money.

LARRY  where did you find that new donut? Expense is worth it if it helps give comfort. At our ages we deserve comfort.

CAROL  sorry your train of thought got off the track. Hope it gets back on the rails without any problems. ;) I saw on the news last night about the student who attacked the shooter. Brave young man. He should be a great marine.

JENNY  I am with you about all the violent games available to kids today. Another thing is to many structured lives. Was better in our time when we used our imaginations for games to play. Today even toddlers know how to use tablets.

JANE  they have had programs here like that, so many went at first and soon only a few went so they were cancelled. At times some were scheduled at the times my CNA was here and they cannot stay in our apartments alone so I had to pass on those meetings.

Have a good day.

Good morning everyone..

Can you believe they are calling for sn*w!! We do have hummingbirds back in the area and I hope they find a warm place to stay.

Yesterday went well and we ended up going to the chocolate factory, picking up some for us ,our neighbour and a friend.

Then onto the quilt store and I gave my credit card a good work out. Nipped over to the world famous bakery and pick up some Chelsea buns for neighbour and us.
We are off again to the Dr. to find out the results of the MRI..please say a prayer that all is well with Kyle.

I am in a hurry again and will post more when we get home but just want to say, Jenny, now is the time we NEED God in our lives, not push him out.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Hi Everyone.  Just checking in this morning.

Joy

Good morning. Like Phyllis wrote, I am here also.  I do feel better this morning. My back is a lot better. Hope it will continue that way.

Gloria, your manager sounds like she is related to our manager.  A lot of the residents are always complaining about the same  issues you mentioned.  And, yes, I agree it does take a special type of  person to deal with "old" people on a daily basis.  I will say that she is pleasant when she meets up with someone in the hall. As I said earlier, I  really don't have much contact with her, except to say Hello when I see her, or when I have a meeting to renew my lease. But, I do know there are some residents who have had very disturbing meetings with her.

Phyllis, I am sorry you woke up with a headache  and hope it improves as the day goes by.

There are a few things I plan on doing today, so I guess I better get busy.  I will try to get back later.

Hope everyone who have been having health issues will have a better day. And, the same goes for all the friends.

A robin has been sitting on a limb outside the kitchen, chirping away all morning.  She is probably ticked that there is snow in the tree.

The tragic news of another school shooting has rocked this area once again.  Last night was supposed to be a support and healing service for students (arranged at a large facility.  However, two politicians ranted about gun control and the students walked out in protest - chanting "Mental Health".  I agree with the students.  Also, does the media even mention the girl shooter thought of herself as a male?  Thoughts to ponder but I sure do not know the answer - I do know my family was brought up with strict rules and we knew our faith and kept close to family members.  We had guns in the house too - so that makes us very suspicious to some people.

Joy:  Nice to read your back is feeling better. 

A lovely bunch of tulips just arrived and they should fully bloom in a day or so - our son & DIL in Montana sent them and we had a chance to talk with him - so, this is a perfect day for me anytime I can talk with one of the children. 

Jenny:  I think of you and Bob often and know you are focused on your DIL recovering - she is in my prayers.  You too!!

Amy

 :cheer:  :cheer: MRI showed NO tumours or strokes!! Bet everyone heard the sigh of relief that came from us!

Gloria, all I can say is I do wish your Atilla the Hun aka witch  ends up in a place ruled by someone worse than see is. Karma does happen and it couldn't happen to a nicer person than her!

Better go put things away and then rustle up something for supper.
 Hope everyone is feeling better, no headaches, back aches and  tail bone aches.

Good afternoon.....dreary day here again with snow flakes falling.  There was a bit of accumulation over night, but now the snow has all melted.  It will be cold again tonight....around freezing, so the plants will remain in the garage for a day or two more😢😢

AMY, I am so pleased to read the good report for Kyle.  I KNOW that sigh of relief well and so happy for you both!

GLORIA, there is nothing finer than to be able to get out in the fresh air and get some vitamin D!  I am over this cold weather.....but can never complain about the moisture as we all need that so badly.

JANE, happy for you that you well be able to attend bot( sessions of the classes.  They sound like the6 will be well worth your time to attend.

CAROL, we, too, agreed with the students, as they went there thinking they were going to morn the death of their fellow student and then the political group takes over the mic and starts their  rankings!  WE  had to listen to the news report a couple of times before we even understood exactly what they were saying was going on!  It made no sense.....mind you, we were already frustrated over our AVS loss🤬🤬 They had a great season and ca; sure hold their heads high!  Maybe there will be a Stanley Cup for us next year.  My heart dropped when Nathan got injured right away.....Thank you for your continued prayers....we so appreciate them. 

Michele and Dave visited one of the oncologist this morning and he will do another gamma knife procedure on Michele's Brain a week from tomorrow.  Monday she hopes to find out the results of the Pet scan.....telling how the tumor on the lung is doing 🙏🙏🙏🙏

I decided I needed to get a haircut TODAY!  My hairdresser was expecting a bundle of joy and IF I did not get in, I would not be able to see her for a couple of months.  Imagine my surprise when she tells me she HAD the baby.....and is only working now because the little one is still in the NICU.  Baby came two months early, but is doing fantastic.  Her lungs were developed enough that she needed no oxygen but will be in the hospital until she is near to 5 pounds.  She weighed 3 pounds and now is nearly 4 pounds and doing fantastic.  This is the hairdresser s LAST day and she w8ll be off for two months and then going to a different shop.  IF I did not get in today I would never have seen her again.  My good luck, for sure.  Only problem is, I think she cut my hair with the idea it was going to be awhile until the next cut as it is really short🤣🤣

I wish you all a good rest of your day. 

Jenny

Joy

Amy, I am so happy to read that your husband's MRI  was a good one and no new issues. I can understand how you feel.  It is such a good feeling, I know. I have some tests coming up in the next couple months.  It is always such a relief to hear good news.

I have had a productive day.  I made chocolate pudding to use up some milk that was about to expire, some jello salad, made some whipped cream for my pudding and didn't even get in a nap.  I had a long talk with one of my sister-in-laws, where we always try to solve the world problems, but that never seems to happen.  We always have so much tom talk about even tho  we talk a couple times a week. 

It has been a partly cloudy day, but the sun is shining brightly now. Hard rain due tomorrow.  A nice Saturday and then a rainy Mother's Day Sunday.  I am not going out until later in the afternoon, so hopefully, the rain will have cleared out by then.  And, I am not going very far, and I can be let out right at the door.

My daughter-in-law called me this afternoon from N.C. They spent 2 1/2 days visiting the Biltmore Estates and then are now in another town and will go onto Charlotte tomorrow to be closer to the airport for their trip home on Sat, morning. She had tried to call my on my birthday, but was calling my cell number and I don't use my cell phone except when I go out.  She did say the weather has been kind of cool., but still pretty.

I am still thinking what I will fix for supper. I have a couple ideas, so need to make a decision.

Carol, I thought  I had heard that one of the school shooters was a girl, but wasn't sure about that.  I just don't know when all that is going to stop.  Seems like it  is happening way too often, lately.  We live in such a disturbed world.  So very sad!.

I hope everyone has a good evening.  Hopefully, will greet you all in the morning.

Hi ! Jenny.  You sneaked in on me/

I hope Michele will have good news from the next scans.  I had the Cyber Knife treatments twice, several years apart.  Mine was for a tumor in my back and they were very easy. I know the treatment for the head is a little more involved, but I continue to keep her in my prayers. Hoping for good news from the PET scan also.  That waiting is just so  hard.  I have been getting  them every 6 months for a long time. And, I know  how apprehensive it is to wait for the results.  The actual PET scan isn't that bad, either, except for the fact that you have to be so  still.  I know how hard it is on the whole family.  You just feel so  helpless.  But, I pray for her to be able to remain being strong.

Now, off to get some dinner.

Hope everyone will have a good evening.

I have to say that a lot of what they say is familir because we all tell it to one another on here.....things like, make sure you have something solid to hold onto; make sure the chair is in place before sitting etc.  But the gave so good info as to what to do "if you do fall".

I still had the headache when I came home from the grocery store yesterday so I just did nothing for the rest of the day except stare at the tv and sleep.  All is better today.

I'm so glad for you and Kyle, Amy.  I love hearing good news like that.

Jenny, I'm sorry about your hockey team.  Our team, the Carolina Hurricanes, had the first game of their series with Boston Bruins last night and unfortunately they lost but they have 6 games left in the series so maybe they will turn it around.  The Hurricanes arena is only about 10 miles from my house but I've never seen an actual game, except on tv.  I like it that way because I don't have to fight the heavy traffic to get there.  :)

Cloudy today with still more rain expected.  I am more than a little tired of all the rain but I am enjoying the lush trees and plants and the green, green grass.  Everything is beautiful to look at!  Except the mosquitoes! :tickedoff:

Good morning.  Just making an appearance, as nothing has happened so far this morning. So don't really have much to talk about.  I slept better last night and do feel better this morning. 

It is supposed to be a rainy day today, nice tomorrow, and rain again on Sunday.

Jane, it is great that you have been able to attend the seminars about how to "take care of yourself".  Every once in a while we have had different people come here to give talks about avoiding falls and other examples of taking care of yourselves and they are very interesting and give a lot of pointers to help us "old people".

I have to use a walker and I am just so careful all the time.  I sure do not want to fall.

I need to get myself moving. I hope everyone is feeling good this morning and have a nice day.

Good Morning everyone.It is 45º and bright sun here in central MO. but only calling for high of 58º. I am batching today Nancy is up to our oldest daughter's baby setting the great grands, Louisalyn our oldest daughter dose that normally. but she tripped and fell and broke the ball in her left shoulder socket. Have a great day everyone. about louisa's Name I was in the Military when jef and her were borne, I was gave the privilege of naming her.
and that was quite a ordeal. at that time in the state of NM. female children had to have three generations of Maiden names attached to them. suck to them such as Gonzales, Lopazes Hera. the old Lady in charge of that sent me a letter telling me I would have to do that. on the blank spaces of her letter I answered her telling her she was my child and I would name her what her  mother and I like. if she did not like it send for a absentee birth certificate from MO. we exchanged correspondence several times with me  and her,not too good of language on my part.after the third time or so i took the letter to the hospital to the caption doctor that delivered the children and showed him. he laughed and said ok Lloyd i will take care of this.he got hold of the right people of the state. they had to call a spectacle season and change the law. so i was responsible for getting history changed there,new mexico no longer has all those maiden names on girl children's Names.

I forgot to say Louisalynn Has no middle Name But with that long of a name she only needs one. she has on her own only except on a few legal documents shortened it to Louisa.

Good morning everyone woke late so this will be short. No sunshine today and a chance of showers. Mother's day will be on and off rain. Glad I am not going anywhere.

PHYLLIS  worst kind of headache is waking up with one. Have not had one since I retired and that is 23 years now. Just realized it must have been tension/stress headaches I used to get.

JOY the witch here seldom smiles or says hello to any of us living here. She is all smiles and so nice to the ones who come to apply or finally get an apartment. Does not take long for new ones to find out what she is like and we do t have to say a thing to them about her.

CAROL  on TV when they showed one of the shooters I thought it looked like a girl and not a boy. There seems to always be a way for those who want one can get a gun even illegally. Then again those applying to buy one do not seemed to get checked out like they should. Sellers are only interested in making money.

AMY  as the say "what goes 'round comes 'round." That is a favorite saying of my daughter. The witch sure does not believe in the Golden Rule or the Ten Commandments. So happy to read the result of the MRI. God heard all the prayers from people who never met you or Kyle.

JENNY  it will not be till the end of May here before anyone starts putting plants in the ground. Woke to frost on every thing the beginning of this week. Would not mind a week of no rain here. Of course by mid summer prayers will be for needed rain. Prayers continue for Michele and all the family.

JOY  My Mother's day will be quiet, one son is on vacation and the other comes every Saturday. Of course I will have my date on Skype tieh my daughter.

LARRY  hope you are feeling OK today,

LLOYD  no more accidents for you either.

Have a good day.

Rain has stopped for now..

Made 3 batches of banana orange muffins, sent some home with the fella that delivers our wood.

Janie, no the wood doesn't see.....well maybe Birdseye Maple but the woodman sees!! :2funny:

What had me on pins and needles about this MRI was I took my friend to get a CT scan then we were going to hit the quilt shops and maybe a quilt show too but, when the scan was done they told her, her cancer was back, brain cancer this time. Needless to say we just turned around and came home. So thank you all for your prayers....

Better get this floor washed.again.....with 8 paws that track in mud after the rain it doesn't stay clean long......oh well this too shall pass.

Hi Everyone. Happy to be able to say this is has been already and hope the rest of the day will be the same.  Yesterday I had a lot of shortness of breath and was pretty weak.  I had a great nights sleep last night.  Pat and Scott just left to go to Costco for some shopping.

Yesterday was a very sad day for Scott as he had to have his beloved dog put to sleep.  He has known the day was coming for a long time.  Pat asked he wanted her to with him to the vets and said yes.  He had made the arrangements yesterday morning when he had to take his sick cat to the vet and dug the grave before he came to get his mother.  The cat  had disappeared yesterday and they couldn't find it but she finally came back to the door. He was afraid she had gone away to die and that would have been a double troubling day for him.  He is so sentimental and loves his pets as they are a lot company for him. He doesn't handle grief very well.  They came back to the house and we talked him into staying and spending the evening with us and got him busy helping his mother fix ribs in the Instant Pot and when he left he seemed to be feeling better.  I want to write some comments here this morning as feel up to it.


Carol, I saw on the news the students walking out in protest to politician turning what was suppose to be  for them into a political event.  I also agree with the students.  I have to wonder why the politicians were even there.

Amy, that was the news I know you wanted regarding no tumors or strokes.  Enjoy that chocolate.  I still like chocolate but eat very little candy since I lost my appetite this year.  That truck load of wood sounds like a lot of work ahead for you.

Jenny, sorry that Michele is facing these new gamma knife procedures after all that she has been through and still enduring. 

Joy, I have always liked pudding and chocolate or butterscotch have been my favorites.  It is not something that Pat makes anymore other than in an occasional pie.  Biltmore Estates is a great place to visit.  We have been there a couple of days in day past.  We certainly do live in a disturbed world and it seems to be getting more perilous all the time. 

Jane, glad you found the session to your liking.  Two days in a row is a long time.  I hope you got a good nights sleep last night and it sounds like the session today should be equally informative. That is certainly a timely subject at our age.   

Phyllis glad to read that you are over your headache and feeling better today.

Lloyd, I never heard of such thing on a birth certificate.  I guess it helps in ancestry work.  I see you changed history and that is no longer required in New Mexico.

Glora, we are joining you in another day with no sunshine and our chances of rain have increased.  I generally don't get Pat anything for Mother's Day but asked Scott to pick up a dozen roses at Costco this morning as something a little special.

Amy

Larry, I hope Scott is feeling a bit better. It does take a while for the hurt to ease, not sure if it ever goes away but it does ease some. Pets become our family ,they wiggle into our hearts in a heart beat.
