    Good afternoon all!

    Thanks for the new post patsie! I too LOVE this prize! It’s so pretty and creative. Well done Ganz.

    gaga—Good luck to your CAVS! My bread turned out pretty good. The dough makes two rolls. The first one I rolled out a bit thin so it baked up a little squat, but the other turned out just fine! I love that it’s a recipe handed down from dh’s 95 year old Nana. So many women in his family have made this and feels important to carry on that tradition. I’m posting a photo link…I have no idea if it will work or not!!! LOL!

    Thanks for the Amish cookie recipe moms! And my brother would have cried to eat that dessert. That was his favorite cereal growing up. He used to eat it out of a huge mixing bowl.

    Hope you all have a great day!

    Hi all. Sorry I haven’t been posting much. Everything is fine, just insanely busy with RL at the moment. I’m taking my heart medication daily as prescribed, and so far no more problems. I follow up with the cardiologist next week.

    My daughter’s room still isn’t completely finished. I’ve had a few other unrelated issues that I’ve had to deal with, but it’s getting close to being done. At least she is able to sleep in her room. It’s functional. We just have a few more decorative details to add. It is such a small room, and for its size, it is SUCH an awesome room! This was my motive all along… give the kid such a cool room, she won’t ever want to leave home! ;)

    Her room is so cool. She has an Echo Dot, and it learned her voice. When she goes in her room, she tells Alexa to turn on the lights, and the lights come on. She tells it what color to make the light, and the room turns blue or green or purple, depending on what color she wants it. Alexa plays whatever music my daughter wants to hear. Alexa can turn the TV on and change the channels on command. And the other day, my daughter and Alexa played a game of Dungeons and Dragons. I didn’t even know she could do that.

    When I was a kid, my parents told me that if I played Dungeons & Dragons, I’d invite demons into our home and might start to hear voices. Now my daughter is playing Dungeons & Dragons, and I’m literally hearing voices. LOL. So yeah, my kid has a new friend living in the walls of her room.

    My daughter got her fall school schedule. All of her courses are freshmen college courses. Three of them are on campus, and one is online. We went to tour her college yesterday evening. She felt a little overwhelmed by how large it is compared to her high school, so then I drove her to a nearby university and she was like…. what??? This is huge! This is like a small city. How is this one school? I was like… makes your college look small, eh? She was totally relieved. And I was laughing inside, because there’s a good chance she’ll be going to that large university next year or the following year. This early college dual enrollment program is an awesome way for her to transition into the university setting.

    This is an amazing opportunity for her on so many levels. There are actually 3 local colleges/universities that participate in this early college program. She had to enroll and be accepted into all three schools to qualify for full time enrollment, which she did. She is taking courses from all 3 colleges, but all of the classes are held at the same campus, and it is only 5 minutes from our house. She only has classes on Monday – Thursday. She’s off on Fridays. And her classes on Monday – Thursday are only from 8:00 – 10:30. She has the option to stay on campus and work on homework in the library or in the commons, or she can come home and work on it when she wants.

    The cool thing is that she is officially a student of all three colleges, so she can participate in any of their open clubs, gyms, etc. But she is also still a student at her high school, so she can still attend after school clubs like Harry Potter and the Anime Club (that she’s currently in) if she chooses, and she can still go to Prom and any other student events as a high school student. And she was really happy to realize that several other students from her school are also in this program full time, so she knows some people going in.

    So that’s what’s going on here. I’ve got some weird family issues that I’m dealing with. I just found out recently that my parents are moving back to my area. I haven’t seen them in years, and they don’t speak to me. Both of my parents are in their mid 60’s. I reached out to my mom a couple weeks ago when I found out she was moving back here and let her know that I’d be happy to help her and my dad if they need any help moving into their home or getting settled. She thanked me for the offer, but declined the help. I don’t even know why they’re moving here. I guess they have nowhere else to go. My sister lives on the other side of the country, and she won’t speak to my parents. My brother is a nomad. He and his wife do missionary work, so they live wherever and with whomever they are asked to go. My parents are both from this area, but my mother’s family won’t speak to her, and my father’s family has very little to do with him. As far as family goes, we’re about as broken and dysfunctional as they come.

    Most of the time, I just tell people that the only family I have are my husband and daughter, because for all intents and purposes, they are my only family. And my kitties. Every holiday, every birthday, every major life event, every ordinary day… it’s just the three of us. My parents and siblings are just people that are out there somewhere, doing their own thing, seemingly unaware of our existence. I have 3 nephews and 2 nieces I’ve never met. I’ve watched them grow up in photographs that they occasionally send my daughter. I could pass them on the street and have no idea they’re my sister’s children. I know nothing about their lives or interests, their happiness or their fears. They have names. I know they exist, because my daughter told me when they were born, but I have to fill in all the blanks and wonder who they are and who they will become.

    Family is weird like that. They can be the greatest source of joy and comfort and support, and they can be the worst grief you’ll ever know. When I was a child, even a young adult, I thought I had the greatest family in the world. Now I have a completely different family. None of the people from my childhood have any relevance in my life. They are merely memories and old photographs. When I lost them, I thought the world was coming to an end… my world anyway… and it was. But I kept moving through. And they moved on, and I found a new family. Maybe the loss of my childhood family taught me to appreciate the family I now have, I don’t know. All I know is that I have fought for my currently family like there is nothing more important in this world.

    Every holiday, every birthday, every special day, every ordinary day… my husband and daughter are all that I ever have, but that’s all I ever need. When the three of us are together, my family feels perfect and complete. Don’t get me wrong. If my parents or siblings or nephews or nieces ever decide they want a relationship with me, I will be thrilled. But I abandoned all hope of that many years ago. Even still, my parents are aging. And they may need help as they get older. It’s intriguing to me that they are moving back here… back home… after all this time. They have some old friends from their church to connect with, who will befriend them, maybe even help them get settled into their new home. But their house is only 10 minutes away from me. Their friends are all the same age as them.

    Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, or maybe I’m reading between the lines. They are going to need help within the next decade or two, if not sooner, because neither of them are in great health. And their friends may be there to support them, but only to a point. They can disown me all they want, but at the end of the day, I’m their next of kin. And I’m a nurse. And I’m an advocate for them. And despite the fact that they abandoned me nearly two decades ago, I still love them. And if they can ever find it in their hearts (or sheer desperation) to ask me for help, I would do whatever I could to help them. That day may never come, but I love them enough to be happy if it does.

    In the meantime, I just have this internal dialogue, of which you all are now awkwardly aware. ;)

    Sorry! I know that none of this Webkinz related! And I apologize for posting without catching up. Back when I used to work full time, I went through periods when I played Webkinz a lot, but at other times I would be too busy with work/school/family to even log in for months at a time. Since I’ve been working from home, I’ve had more time to play WW consistently, but over the past 5 months or so, things have been really crazy. Webkinz has taken a backseat. I go for days without logging in at all. When I do log in, it’s often for very short periods of time. I usually have monthly challenges done by now, but I’m just now starting them.

    I’ve posted in the past that I will do monthly pet giveaway contests. Please forgive me! I had another planned for last month that I totally missed. I haven’t even had time to think about one for this month. Webkinz is a very low priority for me at the moment. This will likely change in the near future, but I never know anymore. Sometimes I plan to play WW in the evening before bed, but my daughter says, “Will you watch a movie with me?” Or “will you play a game with me?”

    And my initial thought is almost always the same… NO! I don’t have all of the mystery items. I want to play Webkinz tonight! But what comes out is… Of course! I would love to watch a movie (or Big Bang Theory) with you. Because the reality is, my kid is 16 years old. And I’m so lucky that at this age she still wants to hang out and do fun things with me! Like, she and I saw Infinity Wars together last week and were like…. OMG…. can’t even go home. Must drive around and just talk and speculate and vent and try to somehow come to terms with this emotionally…. while eating ice cream. Because somehow ice cream makes everything better.

    I got into Webkinz because it was a way to spend more time with my daughter when she was little, especially when she was at her dad’s house. At this point in time, she lives with me most of the time by choice, and she does not play Webkinz… ever. So while I still love Webkinz, it is not and never has been my number one priority. My priority is my daughter. If she wants to hang out with friends or spend the evening face timing or instagramming with friends, or if she wants to play D&D with the voices in her bedroom walls, I’m all about logging into Webkinz. But, oddly enough, most of the time she’d rather hang out with me, and if that’s an option, she beats out Webkinz any day. I seriously can’t imagine a better daughter or cooler friend in the world.

    Sorry to make this post all about me. OMG! I hate when all people do is talk about their selves. But I’m feeling a bit detached atm. Not very involved in WW. But I still love this forum and all y’all! I’m super far behind in reading posts. But I popped in to say hi. Once things settle down a bit here, I hope to post more regularly.

    I’ve decided to stop the monthly pet code giveaways. I was doing that out of a sincere enjoyment of giving people new pet codes every month. I hate to promise things that I can’t deliver. Realistically, I’m not reliable every single month. That was totally the case when I was working full time. I thought that with not working outside the home full time, I’d have plenty of time to host monthly contests. And now I realize that I have weeks that go by where I don’t even check in or play Webkinz. I absolutely love Webkinz as much as I ever have, but the reality is, when things get busy in real life, WW is what takes a back seat. And that’s how it should be.

    So from now on, I will still host periodic giveaway contests, but they may not be monthly. They will be random. And they may not always be pet codes. They may be other really cool in-game giveaway prizes. Like mystery or promo prizes.

    Warm hugs to all of you!

    Hi all! It’s been a loonngggg time since I’ve been here!!!

    So glad to see this blog is still up and going! I’ve enjoyed looking through old posts and seeing all the changes!

    I logged back into my account (which is a current account but is not deluxe) and I was surprised by the advertisements that pop up!! Like I was moving my pet to a new room, and BOOM there was an ad! And I couldn’t get out of it, and it was like a 30 seconds video. Same thing with playing a game in the arcade.

    My question is, does going Deluxe get rid of the pop up ad videos?!

    Hellllllloooooo!!!! Completely overly tired! Went to sleep at 4:30 am and got up at 7:00 am. Had a lot to do before catching a flight to Florida at 4:30 PM. But, now my flight has been delayed till 11:30 PM. SEVEN HOURS!!! I am wondering if it is because of a tropical storm. ME is behaving like a champ. I will let you know how the rest of this evening pans out…
    Moms, we have been on the go since day 5 and have not looked back. DH and I get antsy if we stay in one place too long. But, I agree. One of my favorite things with ME are long walks with the stroller. So calming.
    I had a great first Mother’s Day Patsie! Thank you for asking!

    Moms, I sent another email.

    Hugs to all my Gymbo’s Family!

    Have a good evening!

    Hi guys.

    CatLover, you can turn off ads in the parent area on the webkinz homepage. You’ll need to know the email associated with your account. It’ll make the game faster too. I’d also recommend turning on adblocker if you have it.

    hello! i have not watched grey’s yet, and i’m behind on all things ww, so i just caught up on comments

    gaga – glad you finally got a response from customer service

    rubycubes – very interesting about your parents – i wonder what their logic/reasoning is for the move … i wonder if they will want to get to know their granddaughter??? my father is not a part of my life and does not know my warthogs. he left when i was in my late teens and has shown he is not the kind of person that I want in my sons’ lives – three cheers for good therapy to know he would never be the father i wanted or needed!

    amber – enjoy your trip! i was not great with traveling with the little babies, but we were out and about locally constantly – maybe that’s why we are always on the go! :D i just want to stay home!

    it will be nice that we have a teen driver, so maybe i can have some days at home this summer *happy dance* school is almost over – yay!!!

    dee – i have heard that chocolate chip cookies ship well in cleaned out pringles cans – let me know if you want to practice shipping them :lol:

    i had breakfast with my two besties today, and i had to order the special french toast because it was topped with pecans and CANDIED BACON! what?! one of us had to order it, & it was delicious!!!

    Sorry I don’t have time to catch up on all the posts! (I will read topics above in this thread later!) I’ve been on a cleaning & cooking marathon getting ready for my daughter’s graduation in less than eight hours (actually for the party Saturday evening).

    I’m curious to see how my Amish Cookie recipe matches up with the recipe that Momskinz posted. Dee, after all the company leaves and my daughter is off to Spain (yep, graduation today and off to Spain on Wednesday), I’ll post my version. We frost ours. Anyway, we’ve had more fun with that recipe. We have decorated them for Christmas, Valentine’s, St. Patrick, piano recitals, and now graduation!

    One half of our house is decorated with her school colors and the other half red & yellow for Spain.

    I’m online this late because I just finished my checklist for the main level. Still have one bedroom & bathroom to prepare for overnight guests (my other dd and her dh), but it will have to wait. Oh, and I had to log into Deluxe accounts! I was afraid that I would forget with all of the activity.

    My step grand-daughter is coming, so we may play Webkinz together on Sunday. She is nine. :) Well….I have to go to bed.

    Happy Deluxe Day!

    P.S. Weather is NOT cooperating! RAIN, rain, and more rain. So I have an indoor party instead of an outdoor.

    I’ve finally had a little time to catch up here. Yay! I also did a little trading in the clubhouse yesterday. I love the new promo cabins so much. I was actually thinking of buying $100 worth of estore points to get them. I normally only buy points when they are half price, so I really didn’t want to. Fortunately, I was able to trade for all 3 cabins in the clubhouse, so I’ll save my money for half price points.

    April – Your rolls look delicious!

    Amber – A trip to Florida sounds wonderful! I’m glad you’re flying instead of driving. That would have been a loooooong drive! May is a nice time to go as long as it doesn’t rain the whole time. Usually warm enough to enjoy the beach, but without the hoards of summer tourists. I hope you all have a fabulous time! I’d love to see pics of ME at the beach!

    Sheba – Your party sounds like a blast! Congrats to your daughter! Let us know how it goes.

    Gaga, Gramma, and Moms – Thank you. Yes, it is weird that my parents are moving back. They didn’t tell me they were moving back. I found out from my daughter. And when I offered help, my mom declined it, so I don’t think they have any intention of reestablishing a relationship with me. As for my daughter, I doubt they would move back here for her.

    When I was pregnant with her, my dad told me I was dead to him, and so was my daughter. When she was born by emergency c-section 6 weeks prematurely, he did not come to the hospital. We were in the ICU for 2 weeks and never received a call or card or visit. He has never made any effort to know my daughter because to him, she’s the evil spawn of Satan.

    My mom came to see her almost daily in the hospital after her birth. She was cold and hardly spoke to me, but she would hold my daughter and leave her little gifts almost daily. When I returned to work, my mom watched her full time for 2 years. I think my mom and daughter bonded during that time, but since then Mom has been in and out of her life, sometimes showing up and doting on her, taking her shopping and out for lunch. Other times my daughter will go many months, even as long as 2 years, without hearing from her. My mom is not emotionally stable (which is all the more reason that I’d like to be there for her).

    Since my mom moved away years ago, she and my daughter have periodically texted each other. Occasionally my mom will send her a card and a small gift. But they are not close at all. And at this point, my daughter isn’t comfortable with the idea of getting to know her well. My daughter and I are a lot alike. Having a distant, casual relationship with her grandmother is what she is accustomed to. There is no chance of them ever getting close, because the more my mom knows my daughter, the less she will like her and the more she will reject her. My daughter knows me, and she knows why my parents disowned me. For my daughter to try to get close to my mom is to say, “Go ahead and disown me too.” I think my daughter would prefer a distant, superficial relationship with her over none at all.

    So I anticipate that my mom and daughter may get together occasionally when they move back, but my daughter is extremely guarded with her.

    All that said, a few years ago I sent my parents a letter telling them that if they ever need help, I’m here for them. I told them that the only reason I don’t call them or check in on them is out of respect for their wishes, because they have told me not to contact them. But I let them know that I appreciate that they were there for me during the first half of my life, and that they did a good job of caring for me when I was a child, so I will be there for them, to help them, care for them, and advocate for them if they get to a point where they need the help.

    They never responded to the letter. I don’t know whether or not they even read it. But if they did, they may realize that I’m their best plan B. Given their lack of family support, I’m the only one of their three children willing and able to help them if/when they need it. So I suspect they are moving here, not because they want a relationship with us, but because my daughter, husband, and I will be in close proximity if they need help. I’m probably the last person they will want to call, but at least they have somebody.

    Moms – I’m glad you were able to get some counseling with regard your father. You seem to have a very healthy outlook. And you’ve obviously made a wonderful success of your own family, so you’re right, you didn’t need him.

    To those who received WW gifts from me, please don’t worry about sending anything back. I enjoy helping everyone out here whenever I can!

    Welcome to the new posters! So glad to have you!

    Sheba, Muffin, and other regular posters – Please consider posting wish lists. As I find things you need, I will send them your way.

    Hugs everyone!
