    Hi everyone! 🙂

    New post! Whoo! But what does the 10 mean?!?

    I’m just stopping in to say hi. My head really hurts (for the thousandth times this week) and I’m hoping I will go to bed soon… But I have a feeling I won’t sleep.

    I feel like I’m really behind on everything Webkinz, and really want to catch up, but I literally don’t have the time. I have so many things to do between now and next Tuesday that it’s not even funny. Wish me good luck, everybody.

    That’s all I have for now. Hopefully I’ll find a little sliver of time to stop here again this afternoon to find out more about this mysterious 10. 🙂

    I know what 10 means but I’ll keep mum, cause I assume Momskinz left it mysterious on purpose. 😉 🙂

    Sorry you have a headache Otterkinz. I had one tonight too but the medicine is helping. Good luck on getting everything done. If all goes well the next three days I’ll have extra of the wow trophy if you didn’t manage to finish it.

    Hi again!

    Yup, I’m not asleep. 😛 I can already tell this day is going to be super stressful… BUT I am excited to find out about this 10. I like a good surprise. 😉

    tmt5, sorry you had/have a headache as well. And thank you! I think I will be able to get everything done, but I know it won’t be easy and will leave me super tired. Also, thank you for offering to send me your extra Wheel of Wow Trophy, but thankfully I finished mine a few days ago, so please hold onto that for yourself. 🙂

    Alright, I guess it’s time to take a Melatonin supplement and spray my pillow with some lavender sleep mist. I really need to get to sleep!

    Hopefully all of you are having more luck in that department than me right now!

    Nighty night!

    I think I know what 10 means, how exciting, time goes by so quickly.

    More doctors today and a procedure at the hospital tomorrow for hubby. It never stops, please keep us in your prayers.

    Who is collecting gnomes?

    I missed the extra Wheel of Wow spin, I wish I had coupons.

    Good Morning !
    Hmmmm.. Wonder what 10 means ! Sounds intriguing!!
    Otterkinz.. really hope you were able to finally fall asleep.. can be so frustrating!
    When I get overwhelmed with things to do… make a list of things to get done… for this morning… in order of priority.. check them off as you do them….sense of accomplishment… list next five things…not so overwhelming when you just do 5 things on the list…
    dee… thank you so much for the Dec window !!! Made my day… Despite multiple accounts … have had trouble getting one … so THANKS !!
    KinzGram… Good Luck with your hubby’s procedure tomorrow..Hope it all goes well…Will be thinking about you both tomorrow….
    Have a good day all ! Can’t wait to tune in tonight !

    Happy Thursday everyone! I have no idea about the “10” either, and I usually only pop in once a day to read posts (before the house wakes up), but I just may have to check in again a little later … MOMZ has me curious …

    Things are crazy getting ready for the holidays … I feel like I barely have time to sleep. Christmas decorations half done, laundry is piling up … I AM washing it, but it is not getting put away. Hoping this Saturday I’ll have a little more time. Really looking forward to that Christmas break!

    There are some cute prizes on the News page this time: Cozy Lamb Slippers and Reindeer Slippers. I don’t think I’ve seen those before, so I snatched a few up!

    I really enjoy reading all of your comments even though I have been lurking lately. Makes me realize I need to post more … although I struggle to find something interesting to say. I am such an introvert. 🙂 It’s getting worse as I get older!

    Have a great day everyone!

    Good morning friendz, I hope everyone has an amazing day!
    Wow time does fly. I got an email from a friend last night and I couldn’t believe how long it has been.

    Hope to stop by later (fingers crossed). Momskinz, Tmt5, miss yall.

    December 7, 2017 @ 7:21 am

    I think I know what it means..

    Mom’s today is my birthday..and I’m 10 !! Right? Lmbo

    Ok ok..not 10..sigh…not sure I’d want to be ten again. Would love to be 36 again though!!! Lol

    Cats are fed, house is very dark and quiet…think I’ll cuddle my kitties and stay in bed for a couple more hours.


    December 7, 2017 @ 7:22 am

    My hubby woke me at midnight to say happy b day and give me cards..one from the cats that sang happy birthday in cat meows..lol . The cats were fascinated by it .was really cute watching their reactions.
    The other card was so romantic. .I cried..then asked who picked it out for him, as my hubby never goes for those type of cards! Lmbo


    December 7, 2017 @ 7:24 am

    And he bought me two special gadgets for my viking sewing machine I’ve been wanting!! Wow, he really was listening to what I said…imagine that? Lol

    He also took me out for surf and turf dinner down by the shore!
    Anda short walk on the beach…totally out of character for my man I assure you.. it was actually quite a beautiful day and night here in CT.


    December 7, 2017 @ 7:24 am

    Today we might go hit a museum. ..he hates museums. .wondering where my hubby is and who the heck took over his body!! Lol

    Anywho.. hope you all have a sparkling day! Will try to pop back in later!!!

    Xoxoxox. “Chant”

    Happy Birthday Chant. Sounds like your hubby has made this a special birthday.

    Good luck with your surgery Gramwebbbie.

    Hope you were able to sleep Otter.

    Hello Miracle. We do the bare minimum for holidays now I used to enjoy decorating but it became something that was too much.

    Hugs to you and your husband Kinzgram.

    Morning Gymbonians!

    My goodness, is Gymbo’s 10 years old already? And to think I wasted most of that ten years lurking instead of posting! :mrgreen:

    Where and how does one get the gnomes? I’ve been looking for more information since yesterday and I haven’t found anything.

    Happy 10th! Whoa and Gymbo’s was here today – it’s like an awesome celebrity sighting!

    Hope all goes well with your surgery, gramma! Always great to see you here!

    Good luck with your husband’s procedure, kgh!

    Happy Birthday, Chant!

    TLL, glad you stopped lurking. Did you see the link to the room idea for the Mona Ducka that I uploaded on the other post? Hope that was helpful. The info on the gnomes was from Podcast Ep 90.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but there’s a cute peppermint sleigh that you can buy outright for 7,000 points or you can get for free if you purchase 20,000 points worth of items.

  23. 23 dee said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 11:15 am


    these are on sale again and shipping is free if you do not want to go out…..my dh bought one this morning and they are really nice……i know moms got some for her herd

  24. 24 LeeAnn(wwid:noellepugh) said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 11:15 am

    That sleigh is adorable..oh how they suck us in with cuteness.

  25. 25 Catmom said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 11:38 am

    Happy 10 day!

    Sure has been busy here already and a celebrity sighting too.

    I feel the same as you TLL so much time lurking when I could have been playing with these great people here.

    Dee you have made me laugh 3 times on this thread today, thankyou. I wish you a happy shopping experience at the store that smells like bbq wings.

    Enchanted, Happy Birthday, sounds like it has been wonderful.

    Miracle I also struggle most days with finding something interesting to talk about and usually just read and giggle to myself.

    Zingy thanks for the great info. I would really like another set of the gnomes.
    Patsie hope you are having a great day.

    Otterkinz, Gramwebbie, Kinzgram and everyone who is working through or with someone with health challenges, I send all of the positive energy the universe provides.

    Blessing of Love, Light and Strength

    Love those gnomes, do you buy them in the estore for points?

  27. 27 LeeAnn(wwid:noellepugh) said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 12:41 pm

    Kinzgram.. the gnomes are being given away from Dec 14-25.

  28. 28 LeeAnn(wwid:noellepugh) said,

    Hmm..alright you’ve got me stumped by that 10! I’m going to be thinking about it all day now 🙂

    December 7, 2017 @ 1:57 pm

    Hi friends!

    I’ve been super busy this week with my little Ebay store. Selling, packaging, shipping, and listing… rinse and repeat.

    Chant – Happy Birthday!

    Nita – Good to see you! Glad you’re enjoying your new job! Is your wishlist up to date?

    Dee – I’m sure April will forgive you for trying to get her pregnant! 😀

    Miracle, Shorty, Zingy, Moms, Otterkinz, Patsie, Catmom, LeeAnn, Bepsy, Gagagee, TMT, and anyone else I missed ((HUGS)) – hope you’re having a great week! You to silent Mist, Chesse, and Boper!

    Gramwebbie – I hope everything goes well with your surgery! Please keep us updated.

    Kinzgram – I hope your husband’s surgery goes well. I will be thinking about you. Like Gagagee said, don’t forget to take care of yourself. I worked in hemodialysis for years. I’ve watched the toll it can take, not just on the person living with kidney failure, but on the family as well. He’s very lucky to have you there to support him, but I hope you have someone there to support you too.

    Gymboutiques – Welcome to the community! I hope you stick around and get to know us! 😉

    Quick update on my daughter- She has fully recovered from her surgery. Now she is just miserable because she is playing catch up on all the school work she got behind in last week. She has stayed after school every day this week. Only 7 more days after this week though, and then she’s done another 4 classes. She’s living for Christmas break!

    Got lots of packaging to do and errands to run this afternoon. Hugs and happy 10th anniversary all!

  32. 32 Patsie said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 2:05 pm

    I also know what the 10 means but am not saying anything until later.

  33. 33 Patsie said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 2:05 pm

    Tmt5, I will send you an email of one of the things Ginger and Riley are getting for Christmas.

  34. 34 Patsie said,

    Hi Gymbo, long time no see. I have missed you.

  35. 35 Patsie said,

  38. 38 Patsie said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 2:30 pm

    Kinzgramatheart, I will be thinking and praying more for you and your husband.

    When I was reading your post dee, I kept thinking ‘who is ME, and why would they be giving me heartburn?’ hahahahaha…That would be quite the miracle you performed! hahaha Although, I’m sure dh would probably keel over! He’s already dreaming/planning for early retirement.

    Happy 10th Anniversary Gymbos!!!! So glad I found all of you wonderful peeps!

    Happy Birthday Chant! So happy your hubby made it so special for you.

    Otterkinz, Gramwebbie and Kinzgram—Good thoughts and prayers for you and your loved ones health.

    Ruby—So glad your dd has fully recovered. She sounds like one strong kid! Good luck with all your Ebay shipping!

    Zingy/LeeAnn—Thanks for the gnome info!

  57. 57 Patsie said,

  58. 58 Gymboutiques said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 3:31 pm

    Momskinz runs and has kept the blog going so, many many thanks and appreciation to this lady. Not sure how you do it with such a busy life.
    Glad you guys pop in and out and still enjoy Webkinz!

    Tmt5 thank you for the email and reminder. I was half sleep reading it and meant to comment right away but fell sleep.

    Does Nikki still stops by?

    December 7, 2017 @ 3:37 pm

    Hello GymBob.

    Thank you Patsie, on phone at the moment that email isn’t set up yet on here something on my to list tonight. I will look for your email when I get on computer. Hubby got a new phone so I got upgraded to his current old one. We thought the bigger screen would make it easier for me to type and mine was showing its age with random tripsto the apple loggo.

  63. 63 Patsie said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 3:40 pm

    You are welcome Gymbo.

    Do you mean Naki? I don’t remember a Nikki.

  64. 64 Patsie said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 3:45 pm

    Tmt5, is the email I have your husbands? It starts with a “J”.

  65. 65 Patsie said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 3:50 pm

    Tmt5, what phone are you using? I am also on my phone right now.

  67. 67 Patsie said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 3:55 pm

    I am rolling my eyes while reading an article about the first woman, Zahra Lari, to wear a headscarf in an international figure skating competition. The judges gave her a one point deduction at her first international competition for wearing a headscarf.

    I like these quotes by her though, “I really don’t have any negative feelings towards this ruling,” says Lari. “The judges at that time had never seen someone compete with it (a headscarf) so they really didn’t know how to score me.

    Wow! alot of posts today! I will have to stop what I am doing & take the time to read all the posts! 🙂
    I am pretty sure I know what the 10 means 😀 Time sure does fly when you are having fun! 😀
    Off to read up the posts BBS :mrgreen:

    December 7, 2017 @ 4:05 pm

    I hope to be back after work, but I am going to have a snack now.

    It was nice “seeing” you Gymbo and GymBOB.

  72. 72 tmt5 said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 4:10 pm

    Taking YD to Harry Potter Club at library, buying cat food and YD wants Boston Market for dinner since we will be sort of out near there.

    Yes it was my husbands email first Patsie but it became the one we used for basic household communication like the school and scouts so I took it over.

  73. 73 tmt5 said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 4:14 pm

    I could be remembering wrong but I think Naki has a habit of popping in to visit over the Christmas break from school.

  74. 74 tmt5 said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 4:26 pm

    Gymbo XC is the track cross country team? I think ours is done for the season. Kat has a couple of friends on her school team. She planned to run track, had wanted to since she was about six, even took a class to learn pacing. But she developed exercised induced asthma and even with the inhaler it wasn’t happening. It has gotten some better since the initial problem when she was almost 11 so she was able to do the Color Guard at least. Only a couple of rough practices and her getting a first hand experience that asthma can trigger hypoglycemia.

  75. 75 tmt5 said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 4:31 pm

    The gnomes are very cute I don’t have them yet so thank you to Patsie and Zingy for letting us know about them.

    I feel you Dee on the name letter thing. I hate it in books when the author makes two characters names start with the same letter. I read really fast and sometimes that’s all I use to keep track of the names.

  76. 76 tmt5 said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 4:33 pm

    Time to head out, I’ll be back later.

    I was so happy to read about those colored gnomes! I listened to the podcast episode, and they said they would be available from the advent calendar that they would post on Dec. 8, so that’s tomorrow. She also said that each code will only work for one day, so you have to check in every day.

    Happy 10th anniversary, Gymbos! We are so glad you’re here!

    dee … you make me LOL. Getting someone pregnant online … that’s a new one.

    Not sure why the introverted-ness is getting worse as I get older. Would love to have someone try and explain it from a psychological perspective. I found “Introvert Doodles” online a few months ago, and that artist had me relating to almost every drawing (and laughing out loud many times). Give me my books, my cup of hot tea, and Webkinz, and about 6 hours, and I’m as happy as can be. 🙂

    Oh well, off to introvert! Hope you all have a great evening!

    Happy Birthday Gymbos! What a great place to hang out!

    APRIL’S PREGNANT TOO?!?! How wonderful! Lol
    ME is doing great…I think…She is VERY, VERY active. So, that’s a good thing, right? I have an appointment next Thursday…hoping to get to see her again!

    And Dee, it is funny you mentioned scents. Everytime we walk into a BBQ restaurant, my dh asks why they don’t make scented candles that smell like that. Well…they do. And I bought some for him for Christmas! I got Bacon, Pizza, and BBQ scents. More of a gag gift. But, I think he’ll like them.

    Happy birthday Chant. Sounds like you had a good day!

    Prayers to Gramma and KGH’s dh for appointments and procedures.

    Off to pack a bag for dh. He is going to visit his brother in Seattle this weekend. Have a great night!

    TMT5 the XC is off for the season here too but the kids still run and practice. Today they had a fun 5K with hot chocolate at the end. Getting low temps and cold. I’m sorry to hear about Kat and the running, glad she’s able to participate in other events.

    Yes, earlier I was talking about Naki. I do forget the names 🙁 my bad.

    I should try to login to my webkinz account and see what’s new or old ha!

    Chili mac sounds good dee. I guess is time to run to the grocery store and get milk and bread.

    and patsie, my dd was on here some……..she is lumos………now she is all grown up and at college in boston…………but will be home for christmas. I really think it is because the dorms close……………….i am going to make a vegan chocolate cake for her arrival……….

  85. 85 Gymboutiques said,

    December 7, 2017 @ 6:14 pm

    @ dee – hahaha, no! no more vacation surprises nor planned (our last one was). The kids are all grown. The oldest just got her drivers permit. Our little one is now in kinder and thinks she’s in college.
    How exciting must be to have her back home, I would be coming home too if I knew mom was cooking/baking.

    My goodness, y’all have been a bunch of chatterboxes today! Must be something about that whole “10” thing. :mrgreen:

    Thanks so much for the info on the gnomes. Sometimes I watch the podcasts, and sometimes I don’t bother when my fellow Gymbonians have already snagged the podcast codes. :mrgreen:

    Ruby, you haven’t been here long, so please don’t be embarrassed by this, but Gymboutiques founded the blog, which is why it’s called “Gymbo’s Webkinz Blog”. Gymbo is not new at all! :mrgreen: But a Gymbo sighting is a very rare and precious thing indeed. I’ve only seen Gymbo post perhaps half a dozen times in the three years I’ve been active here. 😉

    Hey there!! Happy 10 to Gymbos!! I can’t believe how fast it’s gone. I actually teared up when I saw this.🤧 I don’t get to come on much any more but y’all still hold a special place in my heart. All the girls that used fill the blog with comments that have grown and moved on. My DS who will turn 18 next year…

    December 7, 2017 @ 7:17 pm

    I still remember buying him his first Webkinz, then he bought me the leopard for my birthday because he thought I should have to. Now it’s been years since he’s played and I’m still going. Sometimes I go through his old account(I still keep it going) and walk through the rooms he decorated so long ago. Like a small journey back to when he was little…good grief I’m making myself cry…sheesh I’ll comeback when I’m not so weepy

    Gosh I almost forgot to peek in today. Happy 10th! I have been working on a formal argument paper all day and I just finished it in time to move on to the next arduous task. 😛 At least when I decide its finished and not a draft I’ll be officially done with that class.

    December 7, 2017 @ 9:40 pm

    December 7, 2017 @ 10:05 pm

    If you have pets, what silly or sweet things do they do?

    Riley barks when he sees his harness.

    Starburst and Skittles say good night to us when we turn off the lights at night and say good night to them. Our previous birds have also done this.

    Finally got to be able to come back, hope Gymbo and Momskinz have slept well. No sleep for me for awhile too congested at the moment. Finished a few of the wow trophies.

    I like wolves so the signature timber wolf. In general the more realistic ones but I’d put the flying pig on my list too. The rocker purple puppy cause it looks a lot like my OD. YD actually named hers after her sister. Red squirrel. Reindeer. Rose Satin Guinea pig, chili hamster, red wolf, Calico cat and Fennec fox.

    Just checking in, I read through some of your posts, I’ll be back to post my 10 favorite webkinz of all time. 10 favorite books wouldn’t be too hard once I fill the top 7 with Harry Potter.

    Here’s the advent calendar. Codes are only good for a day so if you want the whole set, you’ll have to do it every day.

    December 8, 2017 @ 12:51 am

    There is a larger version of the Advent calendar codes but unfortunately I’m on a small screen so I can’t take a clean shot but you can see it by clicking on this link (and maybe printing it out for daily use during Advent):

    Patsie it matters if I am logged in or not because I am an admin.

    LL I could of easily put a lot of your list on mine too. Those are mostly just the ones that I could remember and if I can still remember them then that is a pretty good indicator of preference or they made the cut cause I’ve actually read them more than once.

    Oh no Gymbo on not remembering your password. Fortunately I had all of ours written down when I took that long break from playing. You should have a pet code around somewhere if no place else an email so you can get them to rest the password as long as it didn’t get archived.

    Morning Gymbonians!

    I put the Wacky Gnomes codes into an easier to read format if anybody wants it! I typed this up in Word with a HUGE and very easy-to-read font, so I can’t possible mess things up! :mrgreen: Now it’s just a matter of remembering to enter the code each day, lol.

    12-14 Rose Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-15 Pink Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-16 Violet Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-17 Purple Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-18 Navy Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-19 Blue Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-20 Cyan Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-23 Yellow Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-24 Orange Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-25 Red Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    I plan to enter these codes on EVERY account, so if you miss a day, do not fret, I should have several (read that as: twenty!) spares for the blog. :mrgreen:

    Morning Gymbonians!

    I put the Wacky Christmas Gnomes into an easier-to-read format if anybody wants it! I typed this up in Word in a HUGE and very legible font so I can’t possible mess this up! :mrgreen: Now it’s just a matter of remembering to enter the codes each day, lol.

    12-14 Rose Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-15 Pink Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-16 Violet Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    12-17 Purple Wacky Christmas Gnome:

    Ugh, I just typed up a big long post and the blog ate it twice. Could some kind soul please go fish my comment out of the trash? Thanks! Not sure what prompted the comment to be doomed to the spam bin, lol!

    I fished it out TLL. Thanks for retyping the codes. I will print it in a big font too and hope I can make it to the end (will be in NYC from Tues to Tues around Christmas). Sometimes the filter snags what it thinks is multiple links as driveby spammers like to post them.

    I also fished out Gymbo’s from yesterday and gaga’s post from earlier today. I read and re-read Gymbo’s post and can’t figure out why it got filtered either so TLL, you’re not alone. Going back to read gaga’s now.

    Shorty, it’s Gymbo’s blog’s 10th anniversary.

    Thanks to Gymbo for starting the blog and making this a great place for friends, to momskinz for keeping it alive all these years with her tireless energy and to Gymbob for all your technical assistance!

    Has anyone heard from rollingfur? I miss her birthday greetings, she was always on the ball with those.

    I had some good luck with PAN boxes today. One Zircon window and two winged windows.
    It would take me some time to come up with 10 fav books, but a couple of Austin books would be on there for sure. Would probably take me even longer to figure out my 10 fav webbies, but the original cow would be my number one as it was my first webbie.
    Hope everyone has safe and restful weekend.

    HI everyone. I was happy to come home after a long day. My husband has been out of town the last 2 days but comes home tonight. The back story is our cat gets really mad when there is nobody at home for an entire day(my husband is around often as he has his own business). When I got home tonight my two girls were already home, but up in their rooms. The cat was sleeping by the front door and looked moody when I acknowledged him. I bent down to pet him and he growled. I decided to ignore him and start on dinner but he followed me and kept laying down on my feet. I shooed him away and gave him some food which seemed to appease him. I quickly made dinner and was serving it up when I looked over at my “bleeping” cat who was straddling my dd’s new winter coat that she had tossed on the couch(that had now slid onto the carpet). I literally dropped by plate on the counter while screaming obscenities at the cat across the family room as I could see what he was about to do. By the time I bridged the gap between up he had managed to pee all over her new coat! I scared him so bad with my yelling that he stopped mid stream and ran away. So… I spent the last 1/2 hour steam cleaning my carpet, mopping the floor and now the jacket is on steam allergin disinfectant cycle in the wash(with a cup of vinegar). My dinner is cold and when I just went to hunt down the cat he gave me a look like.. I told you I don’t like when people leave! Who needs moody teenagers when you have a horrible cat! Uggh!!!
    Hope everyone’s night is going better than mine has started out as.

    Hi Patsie.

    I had a cat that decided she didn’t like one of the parents from the childcare and would poop in front of the door shortly before her arrival time basically every morning. Pee is much worse, harder to clean up.

    Better get to the actual webkinz before it is midnight and I’ve missed the day.

    OMG LeeAnn, I’m dying over the cat story! If that had been my cat, it would have run out of lives! :mrgreen:

    moms, I’m glad my typing skills were of some use to the blog. I have trouble reading that horrible font they use for codes, so I figured as long as I was typing up the codes, I might as well post them. Since I’m so lazy about searching for the codes myself, I need to thank the blog somehow for always finding the codes for me! :mrgreen:

    I am having SOME KIND OF WEEK in the trading rooms, y’all. So I got the Mona Ducka a few days ago, right? Well, tonight I got the Adolescent Zangoz! Are they in the stockings as a bonus gift or something? Because I’ve never even SEEN these paintings in the trading rooms before. And if that’s not enough, I finally got my BIGGEST WEBKINZ WISH OF ALL TIME, the orchid waterfall! I am obsessed with the floral favorites theme, and it’s been sticking in my craw for a year and a half that the waterfall was never a promo I could get by buying points or deluxe membership or something. But now I have it, and oh my, it literally makes the room! I’m completely wigging out here, so as usual, I’m gonna pay it forward! :mrgreen: I’ve got a Golden Sparkle Gumball Machine that I will give away to the blog in a contest. I haven’t decided what kind of contest yet, but as soon as I figure it out, I want everyone to participate. I can’t celebrate my own good fortune without giving some good fortune to someone else. I’m weird that way. :mrgreen:

    Patsie – Regarding post 37: I am not the sort to pray. I wouldn’t know who or what to pray to. However, in my line of work, I’ve respectfully bowed my head and listened to the prayers of many people of various faiths. I’ve seen the impact that praying has on people, particularly during times of illness, tragedy, and death. I’m a firm believer in the power of prayer on a psychological level for the believer. That being said, I also have quite a few friends who are nonbelievers, and many of them take offense to prayer and do not want people praying for them.

    I only bring this up because I often see people say, “I will pray for you.” To me, that is a very kind gesture, and I always appreciate it, but to others it may be offensive. You’re the first person I’ve seen who has offered to not pray for someone if they don’t want you to, and I appreciate your acknowledgement and inclusiveness of them. As far as I’m concerned, you can pray for me anytime. I don’t know if your prayers actually do me any good, but they certainly don’t hurt me. And if there is someone out there listening (I don’t discount the possibility), maybe it will help me. More importantly though, if it brings you happiness to pray for others, then I think that’s beneficial for you. So you have my full permission to pray for me (not turning down any metaphysical freebies). Pray for me all you want!

    TMT – Robotics AND The Harry Potter Club? Seriously? We should totally do lunch. With our girls. My daughter is also in her school’s Harry Potter Club. They meet after school every Wednesday. I didn’t even know that was a thing, but apparently it’s a very big thing. Next week is the last meeting before winter break, so they are all wearing pajamas to school and then exchanging Secret Santa gifts at their after school meeting. I’m secretly jealous… Just saying… I was homeschooled (and Harry Potter wasn’t written back then… and even if it was… my parents would have burned the books). Are there any Harry Potter Clubs for grown ups? I want to wear pajamas and geek out over Severus Snape. My daughter was elated when she made it into the Gryffindor House. I was disappointed in her. If she had tried just a little bit harder, I’m sure she could have made it into Slytherin.

    TLL – Thank you for posting the gnome codes! I actually managed to score them all (just one of each) a few years ago in trade, but I’m all about having extras of anything I can trade! It will be a challenge to remember to enter codes daily, but I’m determined! I can do this! I’m good enough! I’m smart enough! And doggone it, people like me! (if you is old enough to remember this…. you is OLD… like me). 😀 And yes, Moms has me figured out, I was being facetious when I invited Gymboutique to join us. But seriously, I couldn’t be happier that I’ve found this forum. And I’m very appreciative for the founders and for those who keep it going, including you!

    So wait a minute, we have introverts on this forum? Hahahahahahaha!

    Top 10 favorite books in no particular order (because I’ve loved them all):

    Pale Blue Dot – Carl Sagan
    A Brief History of Time – Stephen Hawking
    The Problems of Philosophy – Bertrand Russel
    Self and Others: Object Relations Theory in Practice – N. Gregory Hamilton
    Why People Believe Weird Things – Michael Shermer
    The Lucifer Principle – Howard Bloom
    Animal Minds – Donald Griffin
    Experientialist Ethics: A Comparative Study – G. Michael Blahnik
    Existentialism from Dostoevsky to Sartre – Multiple authors
    Capital: Critique of Political Economy – Karl Marx

    More importantly…. top 10 favorite Webkinz: In this order! And just for the record… this was not easy! There are SO many Webkinz pets that I love. It was traumatic trying to choose my top 10 favorites. But these are the 10 that I’m most emotionally attached to (yes, I have issues):

    10. Bubble Gum Cheeky Cat
    9. Signature Endangered Asian Elephant
    8. Grumpy Cat
    7. Cancer Crab
    6. Global Panda
    5. Royal Cobra
    4. Nightfall Dragon
    3. Story Book Goose
    2. Cuddle Cat
    1. Sweet Elephant – This is the cutest plush I’ve ever seen in my life. I had the opportunity to sell it for $70 and I was like… um… you know… that one isn’t for sale, sorry… and that’s when I knew I had a problem. And the fact that I’m 43 years old, and that adorable elephant with the neverending ears sits on my dresser and makes me smile every time I look at it, only reinforces the fact that I probably need therapy, at least according to my daughter… I’m totally okay with that. I’m like, you know what??? SOME OF US (not pointing fingers) need to wear Hogwarts hoodies to school and belong to the Gryffindor House. OTHERS OF US like to have Sweet Elephants sitting on our dressers because they’re ADORABLE. Let’s not judge! So yeah… we just leave it that. My Sweet Elephant’s name is Horton. My Signature Elephant’s name is Ruby (and hence… Ruby Cubes). I really do like dogs, I promise! (Just not quite as much as cats, elephants, pandas, geese, snakes, dragons, or crabs).

    LeeAnn – Can totally relate! You had me cracking up with your cat story! My cat, Dad, was peeing on our shoes last summer. We went through a horrible ordeal with him, but I’m happy to say, he has made a full recovery, largely because I’ve decided to never leave the house again. And he has decided to never leave my lap. That was after I dropped $1000 on vet bills, started buying a special renal formula cat food for him, and started him on Prozac (yes… I resorted to putting my cat on Prozac). I finally realized that it was cheaper to permanently drop out of work full time than it was to medicate my cat. So we have a perfect arrangement now. I only leave the house long enough to pick my daughter up from school each day, and he graciously agrees to not pee on everything that is not his litter box. All in all, it’s a perfect arrangement.

    Goodnight everyone! Happy candy cane collecting!

    speaking of cat pee

    our main cat had some issues and turned out it was kidney problems…..so keep in mind if it is a male cat or and older cat (i think they go by nine)…..

    and yes poop is much easier to clean up…..towards the end, main cat had many difficulties, so we know some good cleaners…………
