    Good Morning All
    Merry Christmas in July !!
    dee… Our family stayed on the North Arm of Walloon Lake…So many great memories of Northern Michigan…. Rode the ski lift at Boyne Mountain… horse back riding a couple of times during our 2 week stay… fishing.. water skiing and usually rented a sailfish for the week or 2 we were there.. Not sure about F Scott Fitzgerald’s house… Remember a long ride up to our cottage.. and when we started seeing signs for Sea Shell City… we knew we were close… Try saying that fast a few times and imagining a car full of kids laughing hysterically when we accidently said Sea Shell SHI… TTY and waiting for our parents reaction !!
    Those were the good old days !!
    AmberRose …have a great trip… will be anxious to hear about it when you get back !
    moms.. you sure were up late !!
    Have a great day everyone !

    I was told by Patsie in WW to leave a comment here so she could snag my email address. I think the only one who might know of me in WW is Ruby Cubes (judging by the user names I’ve gleaned from the comments). I’m usually recognized by my squirrel, Dog Toy. I’ve always been a lurker of the community codes page, so I don’t miss out on anything.

    Happy Wednesday! Finally, a morning without rain, although it is coming later this morning. I about ready to start building an ark.

    Looks like we got the community challenge yesterday:
    Campkinz Backpack. W24F-4747-AH9D-V9SN, expires 9/30/18

    I got some new furniture (small tables) in boxes yesterday, so I’m off to put them together this morning. Yes, I love shopping on the internet! You can find exactly the size, shape, and color you want and have it delivered to your door in a few days. I would not have made it in the 1800s. :)

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Good Wednesday Morning

    Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. I would like to pay those prayers and well wishes forward. It definitely had been a year of challenges for everyone.

    I have been out of the hospital for 3 weeks tomorrow. So far no return of the pneumonia. My eye, however is still not doing as well as expected. My eye specialist will not do anything more until I see a blood specialist to figure out why there is still blood in my eye. It doesn’t hurt but I do start to feel nauseous at the end of the day because of the wonky vision.

    We have two boy students, from China, staying with us for 4 weeks. They are very nice, polite and very funny boys. I didn’t think I would be able to care for students this summer but the school was desperate for families, so I said yes on the condition they send only older mature students. We are in our second week and things seem to be going very well.

    I have been playing webkinz for very short amounts of time because of the eye thing. I have been doing the collections and the fish and on Monday I won my very first Hatch the Dragon trophy. I was sooo happy and proud of myself because I have been trying to get that trophy since the game was released. I have also tried going into the trading room and I was able to do some nice trades for a few cottages that I missed in the past. Nothing new but I was happy. I missed all the berry fest while I was in the hospital but I am only looking for the new stuff and I am willing to trade for the items.

    I have been trying to stay caught up with the reading on the blog and would like to wish safe journeys to all that will be travelling, peace to all that are dealing with work struggles and moving challenges and joy to everyone in all the every day routines that keep us busy.

    Does anyone happen to have the Fluffington’s Antique Armchair from trading cards? I probably need two for a room I am making and added them to my wish list on here. I am also looking for suggestions of side tables to use with them, preferably ones that can be purchased for KinzCash. The room the armchairs will go in is currently a blend of Signature Exclusive items and Kinzville Academy items. I am willing to trade for the armchairs and anything else on my wish list, though.

    July 25, 2018 @ 12:10 pm

    Thank you to everyone who has sent me items recently or traded with me in the little free time I have. :) The Blue CampKinz Platform Tent is an eStore item. That is why it can’t be traded or sent, otherwise I would have a few to donate to the blog.

    July 25, 2018 @ 12:15 pm

    Hi Kitterztoo, I am glad you decided to comment and I didn’t get to tell you last night but I like the name Dog Toy for your Grey Squirrel. However, I am unable to see your email on any posts made by other people like Momskinz. I hope you come back and comment, though.

  15. 15 Patsie said,

    July 25, 2018 @ 12:20 pm

    Moms, have you heard from Zingyginger lately? I haven’t seen her on here or Webkinz recently. I know you said a while ago that you had been in contact with her, though. Thank you again for running the blog after Gymbo passed it on to you.

  16. 16 Patsie said,

    July 25, 2018 @ 12:25 pm

    RubyCubes, I saw that you were on Webkinz when I was last night. I tried to trade with you but you might have been away from your computer at the time. However, I met Dog Toy yesterday in the same Trading Room.

  17. 17 Patsie said,

    July 25, 2018 @ 12:30 pm

    CatMom, I can see your long comment in the trash. However, I am unable to retrieve it for you. I have been thinking of you, though.

    July 25, 2018 @ 12:35 pm

    AmberRose, I am glad you have been able to comment a few times recently. However, I am sorry to hear about your long work hours but am glad you can have Madelyn at work with you. What does Madelyn do while you work?

    July 25, 2018 @ 12:40 pm

    TheLoopyLurker (TheSpoilerLurker), thank you for always posting the spoilers for us. I love seeing what is coming for Webkinz. I also don’t like the recolored items, though. I am fine with a few of the recolored items, though.

  20. 20 Patsie said,

    July 25, 2018 @ 12:45 pm

    Dee, your butter churn sounds neat. I have been sending marshmallow requests to Boper and usually get a marshmallow back from him if I haven’t already received all my marshmallows for the day. I know you are worried about him, though. Have you emailed him? I can try to email him if you haven’t or haven’t heard back from him.

    Sorry to anyone that I didn’t mention individually in comments. However, please know that I am always thinking of everyone, even when I am not able to comment. Please remember that tough times don’t last but tough people do and I know you are all tough. I hope that the tough times end soon for people experiencing them.

    Bye everyone, I need to go read two chapters from my textbook before my class tonight. I miss talking to everyone but try to peek in and make and read posts even if I am not able to comment.

    July 25, 2018 @ 1:31 pm

    Hey Patsie, use the medieval-curio shop trophy pedestals ( without the flags) as side tables. That’s what I did with my Fluffington room. I don’t like posting my email outright due to bots, but it’s essentially just my user name at gmail *momskinz will email it to Patsie*.

    Good luck on your classes!

    It was good to see you in the trade room, Patsie! I will try to find some Fluffington chairs for you.

    Amber – Nice to read your update! I know how life can sometimes get in the way of Webkinz time. Sounds like you’re having a super busy summer!

    Shelly – Thank you for the gift!

    Hello everyone! Ooh is Christmas in July a special kind of tradition here at gymbo’s? Just wondering because it sounds cool and I’d love to be someone’s secret Santa (although I don’t have a ton of estore items since I pretty much only trade for them when I can as I have never bought points and I’m not deluxe currently. But if anybody has other items they need like holiday or other random things, I do have a good collection of those :) )

    Also, please ignore my previous comment. I was just testing whether I could post a comment using my new updated email address. I tried a few months ago but it didn’t seem to work-went to spam or something because it wasn’t my typical email I guess. But now it seems to be working which is awesome! Thank you Momskinz – I’m guessing that you did some magical behind the scenes work to help me clear that up and get my new email now working

    Shelly-thanks for your gift Soo sweet of you! ! I do love psi foods and cute things like that! Sent you some back too, hope you like them!! :)

    Anyone else excited for wacky fest coming up – I absolutely love wacky themed items. He’s so adorable!! :)

    Bye for now everyone!!

    Because looking back through all my posts, I really only know how to do this one: :) Lol

    Thanks you Santakinz, you made my day.

    I have been having gastro problems and my dr will only see me after I fill out 4 pages of questions. I told the nurse I am in so much pain, but it doesn’t matter.
    Dr. have really changed. I have to send the paperwork back and then an appt. may be scheduled.

    Hi to everyone who is new to this blog!

    I will pray for those of you who are having medical problems.

    Thanks a lot Santakinz. I forgot all about X-Mas in July. It was a very pleasant surprise.

  48. 48 RubyCubes said,

    July 26, 2018 @ 2:11 pm

    What an awesome gift! Thank you SO much, Santakinz! I did not have that item, so I was very excited to receive it! :D

    Starla – Hi! Welcome to Gymbos! There are links on the right side of the page to community codes, trading lists, etc. Otherwise, just look for the top post and jump in! There is only one post open at a time to comment in, and it closes and a new one opens every few days. It’s a bit weird to follow at first, but pretty easy once you get used to the format. My daughter and I also played Webkinz together until she outgrew it. I guess she grew up faster than me!

    KGH – I’m sorry to hear that you’re not feeling well. I hope that you’re able to get your abdominal pain resolved soon!

    Moms, Gaga – Hugs to both of you!

    My kiddo is doing great with her physical therapy. We are hoping she will be out of her air boot by the time school starts in mid August, but she has another surgery scheduled on Monday. Due to that surgery, we are holding therapy next week. Hopefully, she’ll do as well with her tonsillectomy as she has with her ankle revision.

    We’ve been working on a lot of registrations, forms, orientations, and financial processes, scholarships, etc. getting ready for her first college semester. She is starting to get excited about it. She will have an awesome schedule. One class on Mon & Wed mornings, two classes on Tues & Thur mornings, and one online class. She is off on Fridays. Because we live so close to the college, even on her “long” days, she should be home by 11am, unless she stays to work on homework in the library or something like that. I think she will do really well. It will be such an advantage to have all of her general studies courses knocked out before she finishes high school.

    Thanks again for the wonderful Christmas in July surprises, Secret Santakinz!

    Everyone else, I hope you have a fabulous rest of the day!

    Thank you Santakinz.

    Also, thank you to all the code posters. I have been so busy with work that I have not had much time for Webkinz. Hoping to have a do nothing day this weekend (better known as play Webkinz) to catch up on my accounts.

    Got a great deal on chicken breasts yesterday at our local grocery store, 72 cents a pound. Cooked it in my pressure cooker and then shredded it in the stand mixer. Then bagged it up into 1 pound bags and placed in the freezer to use in soups or casseroles.

    Hope to catch up this weekend and read through all the posts. I usually don’t get this far behind with reading everyone’s comments.

    Merry Christmas in July!

    Happy Friday! And another small break from the rain, although it is getting stormy tonight.

    Thank you, Santa, for the Christmas in July items for everyone! I love mine! *happy dance* :) And thank you to Cheese and Shelly for the bd gifts. It’s always fun seeing packages in the mailbox. :)

    Ruby, your poor dd sounds like she is going through the ringer. It’s a good thing she’s doing it before college, though; there never seems to be time during the year to take on those longer term heath care “projects.”

    I think I’ve ended up with a nice case of tendonitis in my right elbow *argg!* It’s happened a couple of times before, usually when I use my drill too much, and with all of the work on the house, I’m guessing that’s where it came from. Either that or from swatting house flies. We have screens on every window and somehow, they still find a way in the house. I think I swat at least 15 a day. I don’t remember them being this bad last summer.

    Okay, I’ve got a WW question: So, I’m not much on collecting WW clothing, but I LOVE the beekeeper outfit (mostly for nostalgic reasons, since my dad is a beekeeper and it brings back memories of collecting honey with him). I am very stingy with the few estore points that I get from being deluxe, but this would be an outfit I would purchase, but I don’t want to take chance after chance that I’ll get that one outfit out of the mystery bags since I don’t want any of the other clothing. So, does anyone have an extra beekeeper outfit? I would be happy to send estore points to pay for it! Or should I buy the bags first, and then try to trade with the items I get? I am still very much intimidated by the trading rooms, but have enjoyed all of the trading here. :)

    Gotta pop into work today. They recarpeted our offices, so everything had to be out while they worked yesterday. Today, we get to put it all back, so sometimes that’s fun getting everything reorganized again. Hoping it doesn’t take all day.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Miracle – there is going to be someone here – RubyCubes or Mist or someone much better to answer your question about trading for the Beekeeper Outfit. I am not a real clothes collector either. I did make your question *bold* to help it stand out to others :)

    Dee – me too!!! Santa – please send SNOW or at least highs no more than the 70’s …

    rubycubes – that college schedule sounds like a DREAM to me!

    Amy – I am going to have to start cooking for the family again once school starts to keep things more simple and healthy around here – that is a great idea to cook it up – do you use your pressure cooker a lot? i have an instant pot, but have only used it for spaghetti, fried rice, and boiling eggs – all of which were wonderful and fast and easy, but i am very intimidated by it!

    Patsie made a post for us with the August events and info that I posted as a closed post before this one – thank you so much Patsie for gathering all of that information!!! I love being able to go back and reference that during the month!

    I made a new post about the new Exclusive items & Superbed coming next week where we can chat.

    So, you can go to the home page to view all the info, then comment under the post at the top :D:

    I am closing this post – thank you again to our amazing and generous Secret Santakinz!!!
