Rescue Team Community Challenge

Each day between January 21 and 26, we have a new task, and if we complete the goal WW will give us a Community Code! Check WKN the next morning after 9:30 am to see if we completed the goal!

As part of Rescue Team, you’ll be expected to be fast, resourceful and agile. Then we have one day to relax and enjoy some hot chocolate on Friday before facing the final test on Saturday – rescuing a stranded hiker!

Here’s the training schedule for the week. Good luck, recruits!

    Start of a new work week. Couldn’t log on to my work portal to get modules completed. I certainly didn’t feel like being trapped on the phone with IT, so I’ll do it at work where I’ll get paid for however long it takes for them to fix it.
    Didn’t view the Super Duper Red Blood Wolf Once-in-a-lifetime Full moon lunar eclipse event. I went to bed early.

    Thanks everyone! The moon was so beautiful last night! Didn’t stay out too long, -6 degrees last night and this morning. Brrrrrr. Miss Stella still doesn’t seem to care, she was bouncing around in the snow. We did have a learning curve on her ‘going’ in the snow, had a few surprises in the house yesterday! But this morning she’s got the hang of it.

    The big question…does she or doesn’t she dress up???? LOL!!! I’m in the same boat Choco…dh made me promise not to dress her up. I told him if she doesn’t like the cold, I will be putting sweaters and coats on her, but that’s not the case. She does have a pretty pink collar though. But I definitely put my pups on my Christmas Cards!!! This year was “Christmas Wishes and Puppy Dog Kisses.” :)

    Thanks moms and dee for the recipe section! Stay safe and warm today!

    The dog wears sweaters and coats when it’s cold. He prefers to be inside in the winter though… my mom litterbox trained the little thing…
    I have a guinea pig that doesn’t mind costumes too much. She has a little unicorn costume so sometimes I refer to her as a ‘piggycorn’.

    Hey everyone!

    Thanks for the new post, moms! The Rescue Team Certificate is cute.

    Puma, I hope you’re feeling better today!

    Last week I watched an episode of America’s Got Talent – this season is featuring past contestants. I loved Susan Boyle’s cover of “Wild Horses”!

    april, your photo of Stella in midair is absolutely adorable!

    Chant, what a horrible incident. I’m glad you and your husband are okay.

    WebkinzRUs, that was the best surprise EVER! Thank you so much! My tradeable dispenser collection is now officially complete :D I love it! Hugs ♥

    And OMG, to the thoughtful person who sent me a Valentine Candy Crane, thank you SO much! That one wasn’t even on my radar, I love it! Hugs ♥

    And thanks for the new recipe section, dee and moms! What a great idea.

    Hope you’re all having a nice day!

    i had pad thai once on a road trip with dh…….out of the way type place where some refugees had settled and opened a restaurant………it was good!

    Car was encased completely in ice today.
    It took an hour with hairdryer and a pry bar and piece of cardboard to protect the paint to get drivers side open.
    Ran car for hour…then had to chip ice of passenger side then climb over center console, twisting back, and throw myself at the door to open passenger side to get hubby in for dr. Appt !

    January 21, 2019 @ 8:39 pm

    Then I also had to chip ice carefully off trunk..another half hour or so in about 2 degree weather in the wind..guess wind chill took it to the minus..I coukd barely feel my face after that.

    But got pretty good news! Hubby can now walk more in the boot, and he starts rehab next week! He shoukd be out of boot in 4 weeks!!!! Light at end of tunnel!!
    Best part….HE CAN MOVE HIS FOOT UP AND DOWN!!!
    which means he will be able to drive his car again!
    But sadly, he most likely won’t be able to drive the big trucks anymore. But at least he’s no longer in danger of losing the leg. And he’ll walk again. That’s really all that matters!

    January 21, 2019 @ 8:50 pm

    Chant, that is the BEST news! He must be relieved and it really gives him something to strive for, now. And who knows, while he might not be able to drive big truck, maybe something much better will happen. We can always pray for that. So long as he can stand on his own two feet and stand proud!

    yesterday but was able to get some things accomplished at home..
    Choco .. loved your pictures ! Too cute !
    dee.. never tried pad Thai… pretty basic eater ! Not one to try new foods
    Cheese.. love Susan Boyle !! I Dreamed a Dream is a classic on Britain’s Got Talent… will occasionally you tube it.. she has come a long way… although when she received Golden Buzzer.. she looked like a deer in the headlights !
    April.. be sure to send us a picture of Stella in her pink collar ! I didn’t dress my dog up… but she had a collar for every holiday…Although she is no longer here… I have saved them all
    moms… so much sports talk about the officiating on Sunday… I agree with the Saints fans…. I think they were “robbed” too… Planning on cheering for Rams …
    Hope you all are safe and warm ! Should “warm up ” tomorrow…
    Have a good day.. Back to work for me !

    As far as the cold….brrrrr! Too cold for me! I just want to stay indoors!

    Will the rescue team community items be given to us in code format if we meet the goal? I certainly did lots of speed classes yesterday! I’ve bought at least 50 first aid kits. LOL! Sold them all back!

    Oh, Dee, I’ve never tried to make Thai food, but we have an awesome Thai restaurant near us. The lunch special is $6, and it is a full meal with soup appetizer, spring roll, meal, and fried ice cream for dessert. What a bargain! My dd actually went there for dinner last night with some friends. Dinner prices are where the restaurant brings in its $$$$.

    Community Code for Chalet Window: W248-FEML-86QS-3TFN – Expires March 31
    Community Code for Frames School Spirit Poster: W24J-G548-MRY8-JMZA – Expires March 31

    Chant—That’s fabulous news!!! So happy for you and dh on the road to recovery.

    dee—Our sausage/bean/kale soup didn’t turn out that great, so dh decided to make ham and bean soup on Sun. It turned out much better. I can also attest to it having LOTS of fiber. :lol: Dh and I really like Thai food. Keep the fish sauce…it adds so much flavor. You won’t taste fishy flavor in the dish. We always sub chicken for the shrimp and it turns out great.

    Will look for a cute pic of Miss Stella in her pink collar. I didn’t want to inundate the blog with a bunch of pics of my pup :)

    That NON call during the Saints game was horrible. They were robbed for sure. We will also be rooting for the Rams.

    Little bit of freezing rain and 5-8 more inches of snow this evening. Then getting bitter cold Thurs. night into Fri. Stay safe and warm everyone!

    i made a pot of chicken noodle soup today because a warthog has a cold, and i baked a pork loin – i wish our forecast would be wrong and we could have a snow day! the warthog needs a reset day to rest

    i did speed class yesterday, but haven’t logged in today – guess i need to do that – 4 mins left

    I wanted to stop in and thank everyone for their very generous gifts the past couple weeks. Amazing packages have arrived from Booper, wophy, QueeniB, Zeker and RubieCubes. Thank you so much for sharing those wonderful things with me. And Cheese you make my head spin!! Please excuse anyone I may have missed. My memory isn’t quite what it used to be. Weather here has been awfully cold, rainy and windy. It has been enough to make sleeping difficult. At times it felt like the whole house was going to blow apart. Fortunately there was not too much snow and no damage. I’m going to try to read more later and pick out a nice soup to make for lunch. Thanks all and have a wonderful day!

    Hi all! I’m feeling MUCH better! I put husband on Kiddo Duty for two nights in a row, and took NyQuil. Two days of that, and I’m feeling a lot better than I was before. I have a slight sinus infection threatening, though but I’m trying steam and warm compresses to clear the sinus out before it gets too bad.

    Choco, I love that you have guinea pigs! They’re such sweet critters, and I feel that they’re under-appreciated as pets if you don’t have little kids. They’re such great little companions for adults too.

    Chant, I’m impressed with your camera arsenal. I wish we could have cameras like that at our place! Husband is a bit too skeptical about how they broadcast wireless, and can be hacked so anyone can view your property. I also maybe could use some wildlife cams- some weird stuff must come through our yard at night. We find dead rats (cats? Owls?), bones, and even dog toys in our yard!

    We still can’t find anyone to fix our drywall, cabinets, and bathroom from the pipe leak on Nov 2. We’re getting super frustrated, but haven’t exhausted out options yet. The roof began to leak in December, and we had that patched (we will need a new one sooner than we want, though). And now the washing machine broke over the weekend. *LE SIGH* Home ownership- YAY, I suppose.

    Having fun with the rescue team event! Took speed classes and bought a few first aid kits, but haven’t made any smoothies yet today.

    Wednesday Estore berries are tempting! I’ve not seen the moonberries for sale on their own- just in a bundle!

  49. 49 Dixiecup said,

    January 23, 2019 @ 5:04 pm

    Ugh, Puma … I know what you’re going through. That first couple of days with this sinus (I don’t know if it’s a virus or a general bug) is absolute Musery, with a Capital ‘M.’ There seems to be a dry hack that almost whistles when it hits in spasms that accompanies this. It plugs up your ears and makes you sound like you’re talking through a Tuba. I went home, yesterday with about $100 worth of remedies, none of which seem to give any more than an hours’ relief. This is one case where ‘Sharing is Caring’ does not apply.
    I need some of my Mom’s homemade chicken noodle soup. And someone to sing me, ‘Soft Kitty.’ LOL *cough, cough*

    Oh funny story!, dh thought from listening to my talking that I wanted an airfryer. Lol came in mail yesterday.
    I have been looking but after reading reviews on them not so sure they are worth it.
    Anyway he bought one. From HSN .
    Decided to try it. Plugged it in set the temp. And the timer. Pushed the pan in…
    NOTHING… no light, no fan noise, no heat…but the timer worked! Lol
    Yup sending it back…

    I’m first patient in morning..6:30 am. Which mean up at 5:30am.
    I don’t DO mornings. This may be a problem, but then I DO get to go back to sleep via anesthesia which means I won’t feel a thing hmmmm and I get to sleep till noon or so before they throw me out. Hmmmmmm

    i guess you are not meant to have that air fryer!

    gaga – i believe that desk is new with this event, i don’t remember it either

    i made chicken noodle soup for the warthog – hopefully the mom touch cures his cold – it’s really good, but i wish i had used more celery

    Puma & Dixie – Hope you all feel better soon! Dd had a nasty sinus infection last week and she missed two days of work. She is feeling better now. Today is the first day she appears to have energy. She came home from work and made dinner! :) Some curry dish that was delicious! She basically guessed on all the seasonings & threw in whatever she could find in the fridge. No written recipe that I know of! LOL!

    Chant – My thoughts & prayers will be with you tonight and then again tomorrow as you face your surgery! Not sure why it doesn’t feel right to you, but hoping that it is only uncertainty and not some premonition of how it might be. On another note…how thoughtful of your husband. Too bad that it was a lemon!

    The desk reminds me of the navigator’s desk with the pirate theme. There are some differences, but there are also some similarities. ;)

    Moms – Sorry about the warthog! Hoping he feels better soon! I bet that home-made soup will have a magical effect on him! ;) My poor daughter got chicken noodle soup from a can!

    Moms, I guess not! But then it might not be a bad thing in the end. Lol

    If I still feel this off feeling when I get there, I may back out of the surgery..

    Dixie, we load up on 10,000IU of Vitamin D (just 1,000 for kiddo), 250+mg Vitamin C (125 for lil’ man), and elderberry syrup. Ibuprofen for aches, and NyQuil overnight. Also hot teas, honey, foods with garlic, and apple cider vinegar with hot water and honey (YUM!). I think my sinus just drained out, so hopefully the pressure and pain won’t come back. Do you do acupressure to relieve sinus pressure? Press a finger right between your eyebrows, and at the same time, press your tongue flat to the roof of your mouth- hold both for 20 seconds. If no relief within a few minutes, do the same, but press and release your tongue repeatedly against the roof of your mouth. This moves the vomer bone in your nose slightly, and should make congested sinuses drain promptly. It’s my lifesaving method. I wish I had known it years ago!!

    Dee, do you have Netflix? Watch the “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo” and learn her KonMari method of tidying- That’ll get you inspired to deep clean, tidy, and rearrange the room! I’m already wanting to KonMari the house, but my killer cold kept me in check so far. ;)

    I re-opened this… hope that was ok. it looks like it was updated & did NOT look the same at all… idk if I can figure out how to make a post now. :cry: not like I’ve made a post in a while. . . I have thought about doing a contest, or something… hmmmmmm

    anyway, howdy all!! I haven’t read up, but I hope everyones doing well. I’m just sitting down to have some coffee, so I’ll try to read up now.

    quick question-does anyone know where the walls and floors came from that are in the clubhouse room with the bear in it? I absolutely adore that room & would like to try & replicate it. not 100%, but a lot of the things that are in there. so any tips on that room would be great. :mrgreen: thank you very much!

    Puma – they are great pets! I never paid much attention to them before but then my boyfriend got 2 from someone he knew who couldn’t take care of them anymore. Unfortunately one passed away last year, but we still have the other. She’s such a cute little thing and pretty low maintanance as far as pets go. Just gotta keep her living space clean, keep her fed and watered, and give her lots of love.
    Chant- hope all goes well with the surgery!

    choco, ours loved paper lunch bags and i would always pick up a handful of green beans to give her………..she was our first new pet here…..her old school had one as a class pet and we got to watch her over spring break once and we just fell in love with the species……..we would love it when she did her popping and squeaking! she was quite the cuddle bug too! we went all over town here looking for one of them baby slings so that we could carry her around…..she died after about four years………i guess you can litter train them??
    she was a sweetheart tho………..she is buried in the back yard and i planted daffodils there………

    she even went on a road trip once with us to alabama. stopped at a cracker barrel to eat and we got a plain salad for her………parked her in our friends dining room for the visit and all had a great time………miss her

    Hi everyone!
    No surgery today. Apparently my body agreed with my funky thoughts.. 430am it woke me up with a throat full of food…barely made it to bathroom..5 mins later…the other end erupted!
    I was sweating and running low grade fever. Spent about an hour in bathroom..it took me down hard. I went back to bed. Stayed till 130pm. Hubby called and cancelled.

    Sooo, now I have to reschedule, ugh!

    But thank you all for your kind thoughts.
    Found out later, that hubby was preparing to go with me and stay for entire time! Which was not the plan. But he said he didn’t like how unsure I was..said it felt like a premonition to him and I’d never, with all the surgeries I’ve had in past, said the things,id said this time.
    Probably for the best..

    Dee – I think they can be taught to use a little tray. Haven’t tried it with ours, I think she’s too old to learn. A road trip with a piggy sounds interesting. Mine just sleeps, eats, and po0ps (does the censor approve of that word? not risking it) so I don’t think she’d be too difficult to travel will.
    If any of you are cat ladies (like myself) or just want a good laugh, you need to watch catwalk on netflix, it’s about cat shows. There’s this giant fluffy orange one and if anyone is interested in sneaking into canada with me to kidnap that cat, let me know. One day I’m gonna be one of those crazy cat ladies parading my cats around the country. When I visit your cities for cat shows, I expect you guys to come out and support me and my hoard of cats.

    Good Morning All !
    April… Loved the new picture of Stella !! The look seems to say … Should I or shouldn’t I..!! Made my day !
    Still a bit under the weather.. made through the procedures at work and was able to go home.. crawled under a blanket and took a nap… Planning to head back to work today but probably isn’t the best idea.. But it is Friday and will have the weekend to catch up…
    cwc… Nice to see you !!
    Chants… hope you are feeling better today ! Your premonition was strangely right on… Best your surgery was cancelled..You need to be tip top condition to recover…
    moms.. Hope your family is feeling better today !
    dee.. your menu as always… sounds delicious.. Still think you should approach food network to have your own cooking show !!
    Weather here heading back to the deep freeze this weekend…So over winter but have a ways to go….
    Few floaters in WW… wacky pops have started flying this morning ! Unfortunately no new prizes ! How shocking !!
    Hope you all have a good day !

    Oh well, Gaga, there are plenty of kiddos out there who want that car! I went and tried the Wacky Games, I got almost past the level 8 mark on WackYer. I don’t think I will ever get that doggone trophy :roll:
    Feeling a bit better. Puma, good suggestion. I forgot about Hot Apple Cider vinegar and Honey! WAY better than Neo-Citran, that stuffs deadly.
    April! I was beginning to think I was the only one who watched that show! It is my favorite and I like Young Sheldon, too. I am going to miss them when they finish this season. I think it’s going to be very emotional for that last show, too.
    By the way, I love that daring look on Stella, she is such a funny lil pup.

    I double checked them with the podkinz just now the moonbeam tile ones look correct – am I blind and losing it??? and which cookie code? the top one from the lil purple cow estore page looks correct

    I very much appreciate the help with them!

    Chant – Hope you are on the mend! Sorry about cancelled surgery, but maybe the re-scheduled time will feel better to you. Your husband sounds very thoughtful. First in buying something for you that you had talked about; and secondly, because he was planning to take off the whole day of scheduled surgery to be nearby. Sweet!

    Well, I’ve fed 1/60th of the Hot Cocoa’s needed for the community challenge! ;)
    Now I should really take a walk. I’ve been terrible about going outside with it being cold.
