viva... thank heavens you post regularly... I might not have found "our" thread (meaning it belongs to all of us, of course!).

Glass... are you and Paul getting married! How exciting! DETAILS WANTED!

Hayfield... Hope all is well with you and the fam.

Thinking of everybody! L is growing, growing!

PS ... weather is finally up for good, I suppose! It has been in the 80's afternoons... lots of wind.

My DD moved to South Carolina the weekend after I had my surgery. Some big company offered her a Human Resource Manage job at a company called Milliken. She accepted it on the spot. She'll make close to 6 figures after a year or two. Not bad for a 30 year old. But I miss her terribly!

I can relate to missing your daughter... but congratulations to her and the extra-opportunity job! When opportunity knocks, I imagine it's best we answer the door!

Not much going on here. I'm just trying to get everything done. It's housework, yard work, glass work! I can't seem to get everything done. I don't know how I used to work 80 hrs a week. Well.......I guess I was younger. Sigh!

Wedding plans. I'm not sure how I'm going to make plans for that loves. We just look at each other ans try to figure out just what we want. I sent for two outfits and nothing so far suits me. I just seems strange to be looking. Maybe it'll be just city hall or just us at the church. I just don't want to make a big deal about this....I think. I would like to have my kids there but they seem to think it's silly. LOL, maybe we'll just run away and get married. That might be an adventure.

Hi Viva. It's hard to believe it's 80 there, after all the snow that's been on the east coast. I hope this doesn't mean your summer is going to be really hot. We're having a lot of fog. That's what happens at the beach.

About the wedding, I just can't find anything that's fitting, as in not ridiculous. I do have something put away but it's way too small but it's exactly the right thing. I guess I could diet like crazy. *sigh*. I don't know.

hey everyone,

glass, let your mind go blank. you are not trying to please anyone but yourself and your other half. Look away try on, make it a fun day just for you, see what you can find, bring a friend along to lunch and looking. you will find something.

weather is wet for the ducks, have had some good down pours. even a boomer rolled through.

farmers almanac is calling for hot weather with a mix of cool and wet thrown in for good measure all summer for us.

not much here today, last load in washer,

sunny but very cold today, only in the 30's today. had snow last night, wet snow.

the step replacing man is here. he is building new front steps for us.

not much else, later guys.

I took care of my sister's little dog today. Our dogs have such fun. They wear themselves out.

It was a nice sunny day. Yesterday and the night before were cloudy all day. I missed the "blood moon". We always seem to have fog when there's something to see in the sky.

I got a new doctor today. I'm really excited. Her office is 3 minutes from here. I think the older I get, the less I want to drive around. This doctor is an old friend of my sisters. I guess she's tops.

Wow viva, 80 yesterday and 30 today? That's quite a temperature variation.

Glass Lady K -

Just came across this forum thread and read your fabulous tag line. Thank you so much for such a good laugh. I needed that!

viva9231397747353.9336405 PostsRegistered 4/5/2008Delaware

hey all,

Hi inkadew.

Not much today. lawn man came for 1st time.cut my lawn and weed wacked. did a good job, my lawn is cut for 1 week, wonderful is all I can say. the step maker man is here finishing up the front steps. he will begin tearing apart the back steps. he did a fab job making the new steps, they are excellent, nothing is going to move them and they are WIDE. the last steps made was for people who were small, 1 inch x 1 inch tall. you walked up them and I swear you felt like you were going to fall off same with walking down them. the step man who built the last set of steps (in 2004) was someone totally different.

weather is sunny but still cold.

OK guys that is all for now, later all.

viva, glad to hear you're happy with your new steps. I just love it when everything goes right. Same with the yard. I have a terrific guy that shows up every week. He also does a little extra. He's done my yard for almost 9 years.

Hi inkadew. Yep, that's my motto. It's my motto. I even have it over my desk. I'm glad you enjoyed it and it gave you a laugh. My fiance' used it back at me last week. He said "You should read your motto again". I was upset about something.

Hi, all!

Will BBL to chat! We are out of school for today! YAY! NO SCHOOL!

I am "down" about so many have-to's and I wish I could get an ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT for this...

Glass, I'm sure you will choose something to do about a ceremony that you enjoy... what you are wearing and where it will be held. After all, don't you deserve to be happy (or maybe content is a better descriptive). If it were me, I'd make the whole deal something comfortable and enjoyable... and that means it should be on "your terms." Finding something I like to wear can be a pain... so go cas! Same for the "service," go cas!

hi, viva... thank you for your regular postings... God bless you!

Loves ~ dancin' & prancin' ~ ♥ ♥ ♥

not to much today

it is late. busy day here. went to see my foot surgeon today. not good news today.

my skin on the bottom of my foot under the surg. is breaking down badly. huge deep cracks have developed. dr. said it because there is still to much bone in that area and needs to be shaved off. he has asked me to get some metatarsal pads for my foot (from the way he describes them, they are lifters for the arch to get the weight off the foot) less pressure, less cracks. I go back 30 may for next check. if he sees that these metatarsal pads have not helped, back I go into the operating room.

wait and see, all I know, these cracks are super painful to walk on. DH got me some dr. scholls arch supports tonight to help till my metatarsal pads arrived. Ordered them tonight (from a PA company).

ok that is it for now, later guys.
