    from what i read today about them, they are only in australia………couple zoos there……
    altho I am sure some american tourist tried to smuggle one out at some point, because…………
    gonna heat up here for the rest of the weekend. might even turn on the a/c!
    i hate turning it on, as it seems it is on til the end of september. granted i set it at 78………….
    gots to watch my pennies!

    May 16, 2019 @ 5:36 pm

    I just checked and because it is a vulnerable species and also because Australia has strict policies on transport of indigenous wildlife. it is highly unlikely we will ever see a Quokka in any zoo here or in the US.

    What a cute new pe! I thought it was a capybara at first! Saw one at the zoo and it was absolutely adorable – did a little ear wiggle that melted my heart!

    I saw some of the quokka videos! I thought maybe someone had been to Australia! I’m not sure that I would want to be near one, though. But the Webkinz version is adorable.

    Dee – That baklava recipe looks amazing! You will have to tell us how it turns out!

    The weather is absolutely perfect here! 70’s during the day and high 50’s/low 60’s at night! Love it! I wish it would stay this way!

    Hello, just stopping in for a minute.
    I just wanna ask for you guys to keep my boyfriend in your thoughts (and prayers, if that’s your thing), he’s currently in the ICU. I won’t go into detail about how he got there, but we’ll just say that there was a note left for me. He had many many seizures today and they are concerned about brain damage. I’m at a loss right now. If you have a loved one who is struggling, please check in on them, even if they seem fine/say they are fine because you never know. Everything seems fine until it isn’t.

  15. 15 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 16, 2019 @ 10:06 pm

    awwww choco – i will be praying for you & your guy – i am so sorry you are going through this right now

    it is so easy for many to hide their innermost thoughts and you don’t ever know what battle someone is waging inside ♥ i’ll be thinking about you

  16. 16 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    May 17, 2019 @ 12:47 am

    Oh no! I’m so very sorry, Choco! :( I will certainly pray for both of you!

  17. 17 gagagee said,

    May 17, 2019 @ 5:12 am

    Good Morning All !
    Finally ……………….Friday.
    Choco … very sorry to hear about your boyfriend… will keep both of you in my thoughts and prayers…Lean on your family and friends for support through this difficult time..
    moms… saw the first half of the GSW game ! Looks like I tuned out too early…
    They really are an amazing team… even without KD….being the eternal optimist
    that I am………..not over till its over !
    Never heard of a Quokka….until now… Haven’t decided whether to get one or wait until Ganz comes up with something else…
    Hard to say … Have a good day when there are those who are struggling …

    Oh Choco, my prayers and heart are with you and your boyfriend. I am so sorry you are both going through this. I will keep both of your families in my prayers too. ♥

    Afternoon Gymbonians!

    Congrats to Dixie on becoming a great-grandmother!

    Choco, (((massive hugs))) for you and your boyfriend. I hope that the note didn’t indicate the taking of his own life, because that’s beyond sad. All my thoughts for both of you. :(

    And you probably don’t even care about this now, but I did find some Webkinz Day trophies for you. I will hold them for you however long it takes. (((hugs)))

    Thanks for the code, Dee! I got a slushie! :)

    Leaving for a retreat this weekend with our church. Supposed to be ready to go in less than two hours, so gotta’ run! Lots to do!

  22. 22 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    hey all!

    i was hoping for an update from choco – praying everything is okay . . .

  23. 23 dee said,

    May 17, 2019 @ 6:54 pm

    well i have all my veggies chopped for my stir fry……..due to leftovers, it will be dinner tomorrow……..but i love chopping veg…….not fancy like those chef people on tv, but slow and steady wins the race
    hope all are well……….one of the roads to town will be filled with subdivision wide yard sales tomorrow, so we are planning on how to avoid the area. why on earth would they do them all on the same day? I mean at least a thousand houses total………and new places, so no new old junk (like we like)
    dh is going to one out of the area, that i might go to if i am ready to go.

  24. 24 Chococat663 said,

    May 17, 2019 @ 8:03 pm

    TLL – unfortunately that was the intent. He has some mental health issues and I’ve been trying to get him to go back to therapy for a while, but he’s hesitant. Enchanted was able to hook me up with the trophies I needed, so I’m all good on those. Thank you though!
    A little update: he’s awake now, but still heavily medicated. He’s on a ventilator (which should be removed tomorrow) so he can’t talk right now. When he’s awake and there’s a visitor he gets agitated and tries to talk, so his mom and I were both asked to leave because he wouldn’t calm down.

  25. 25 dee said,

    May 17, 2019 @ 8:23 pm

    you need to talk to someone………….
    not sure if you have a preacher or a counselor or what……..but someone.
    i mean really and truly and the sooner the better………..this is not YOUr choice

    just do it please


    May 17, 2019 @ 9:41 pm

    Choc,. Having more experience with this then I’d like, I totally agree with Dee..find someone to talk to!!!!! Often times we tend to blame ourselves..why didn’t we call?, why didn’t I see it? Etc etc. It’s not your fault. I pray you know this. Some people just hurt inside so much, and they don’t know how to deal with it. They often don’t realize how their choice effects those around them..until they go through this. It’s a cry for help, and I pray that he gets the help he needs. All I can say is be there if you can when he needs you. but don’t neglect you in the process..

  27. 27 PumaPardus said,

    May 17, 2019 @ 10:36 pm

    Choco- how stressful and scary and anxiety-inducing!! My heart goes out to you, and him and his family!

    I third the sentiment, please find yourself someone to talk to as soon as you can, someone professional. Counseling is incredible most of the time- I’ve been myself, and just having someone to unload your feelings onto who can safely absorb them, and give you a secure, safe pressure release to shove scary feelings is such a relief.And validation and reassurance go a long way, too. Look around, and maybe see if you can find a place that accepts help from United Way. I know virtually nothing about the organization as a whole, so I can’t speak for that, but when I needed counseling in college, and signed up, the office informed me that United Way was paying a large portion of my fees upfront- I only had to pay a token amount each session. It wasn’t anything I signed up or opted-in for- it caught me by surprise, but really helped me fund the help I needed. I hope you can find someone who can be a safe feeling-absorber through this super scary and emotional time. :/

    May 17, 2019 @ 10:51 pm

    choco – ditto all the blog mamas – talk to someone that isn’t a peer!

    and to reiterate – people have their innermost thoughts that you can never guess or predict and people who battle with depression have mastered hiding their feelings – i know a lot about it, and the illness never goes away only flows through different stages . . .

    i went to therapy as a teen & young adult, and it made my life so much better! i have much healthier perspective & coping abilities & am so thankful i did that

    we are “here” for you!

    dee – i am such a slow chopper!

    Good Morning
    Not sure what happened to my post from yesterday.. . guess it went into the trash..
    Choco… have been thinking and praying for you and your boyfriend…What a
    traumatic experience you are going through… joining the groups sentiment that you seek help for yourself too…
    Whenever my life seems overwhelming … I look at other peoples problems and realize that my troubles pale in comparison to what others are dealing with..puts things into perspective for me..As moms said.. we are here for you and support you !

    gaga – and regarding GSW – it’s really crazy how they played so lazy-daisy the first half, then seemed to kick it in gear after the half – I’m glad they are reminding people that it isn’t all KD, but i like watching him, too

    i’m just waiting for little bro to hard foul big bro :mrgreen:

    Hey, I’m new to this blog. i’m sorry if that’s the wrong place to ask but can I get a permission to be an author? I know this is a good place to trade and I have a big trade list I wanna share here if that’s ok?

  33. 33 Dixiecup said,

    May 18, 2019 @ 10:38 am

    Hi Zayac1!! Welcome to Gymbo’s! Nice room on Webkinz Newz this past week! You do have a flair for decorating. Azula’s Garden is gorgeous!
    Being that you’re new, we have to get to know you a bit. Most of the members have been here a long time and know each other very well. So, keep posting for a bit, let us know a bit more about you and I’m sure you’ll here from Moms pretty soon.

  34. 34 zayac1 said,

    May 18, 2019 @ 12:15 pm

    Thank you <3 and yep, it does look like everyone on here knows everyone which is great.
    I'm a pretty clueless person when it comes to that kind of stuff (it took me a while to even find where to register) but wouldn't I need to be an 'author' to make posts? or did you mean something else?

  35. 35 Dixiecup said,

    May 18, 2019 @ 2:35 pm

    I am just talking about posting on the conversation threads a bit more. Get a feel for the place and the people. The posts that Moms (and a couple other people contribute) are usually only about 3 days in the cycle. Then, they make a new one.

  36. 36 zayac1 said,

    May 18, 2019 @ 2:40 pm

    oh ok thank you so much!

  37. 37 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 18, 2019 @ 3:04 pm

    hey zaya! welcome to gymbo’s!

    i’m the main “admin” here now that gymbo “retired” from webkinz – feel free to comment with your trading list for now! :)

    we like people to visit & comment a little – is this your WWID? feel free to add me – my wwid is on my “name” – momsownkinz

  38. 38 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    May 18, 2019 @ 3:12 pm

    zaya – we love seeing others’ wish lists if you have one

    i’ve been playing webkinz since it was a couple of years old & have been on this blog for almost as long – i don’t really get active in other webkinz blogs just because of time & because i have such good friends here, but we don’t have all of the rules some of the other blogs have – trading & gifting is welcome & encouraged. as long as both people are being fair and are happy with the trade, we don’t really worry about equal “values” as long as no one seems to be taking advantage of the generosity here because you will find some of the most generous givers ever here! :)

    i started when my oldest son got his first webkinz, just trying to earn him kc and stuff, but it quickly became my hobby as both of the boys outgrew it – i have two teen sons. i think pretty much everyone who comments on here now is an adult – young adults all the way up to more “senior” members

    if you have any questions just comment – we are all willing to help you jump right in here! we always keep just one post – usually the most “recent” one – open for comments so that we always know where to find each other, so you can trade, chat, whatever on whatever post is open – you do not have to find a post “on topic” like some forums . . .

  39. 39 zayac1 said,

    May 18, 2019 @ 3:27 pm

    Hi! yeah I was wondering why it was called “gymbo’s blog” but the admin’s name was different. now I know why

    And ‘zaya’, I like that nickname. My dad still sometimes calls me that name.

    and yes, that’s my WWID, I’ll add you now.

    you know, I’ve been told about this place a year ago by an anonymous user and Pumapardus helped me register a long time ago. I was too scared to ask for author at the time, I thought it was kinda weird to do that. today I finally did it so yay!!

    Here’s my full trading list:

    I got my wishlist on my tumblr(click on my name).

  40. 40 zayac1 said,

    May 18, 2019 @ 3:36 pm

    Oh I just saw your second comment, I myself am not an adult yet(at least I don’t consider myself as one). It’s great to see the trading rules here are different here as well.

    And about you trying to help your kids get kk- my boyfriend can relate to you on that one. He always helps me on webkinz stuff too and now he has an account of his own. We like to play atomicolitious together. Webkinz is a special game, it has so many things in it and people from different groups- like in Minecraft!

    Also excuse my spelling and grammer mistakes, I still try to learn how to speak English properly. And thanks for the introduction! I won’t be afraid to comment stuff anymore lol

    I prefer a good burgundy or merlot personally.

    Maybe a nice hot crusty loaf of bread and some real butter slathered on it.


    May 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm

    Dh said girl scout cookies for dessert….as long as made out of real girl scouts…


    May 18, 2019 @ 6:35 pm

    Baked crispy chicken, cheese agrautin potaties, seamed broccoli on menu tonight.

    Tommorrow we are smoking some meats. Just got a smoker month ago. So far so good. Tried ribs, , pork roast, loin, and chicken breasts last two weekends. Prefer Applewood to hickory.
    Trying chicken thighs, beef brisket, and London broil this weekend.


    May 18, 2019 @ 6:38 pm

    I missed the pineapple glasses.. spent ANOTHER day in ER with dh..another infection! Uti this time!!! Ugh! This year was supposed to be better???? Lol

    And I’m feeling great! Just a little itchy at two of the holes.

    That is holes dr. Cut during surgery Dee…just so you don’t wonder BWAHAHAHA!


    May 18, 2019 @ 6:51 pm

    May 18, 2019 @ 7:17 pm

    i had that problem too. autocorrect is so annoying but i can’t type without it, because it usually helps me. i make a lot of typos both in english and my native language.
    im also too lazy to edit the “wrong” words because for some reason when i make a typo it saves it and it’s even more annoying- though i’m glad i have a phone.

    ZAYAC is that you! From Tumblr?!? *pounces you* It’s ME, PumaPardus!! Wave if its you! I saw you deactivated your blog before Christmas, and I MISSED you! I’m glad you’re here finally- Gymbo’s is the BEST!

    Another little update: he had a very high fever today along with high blood pressure and high heart rate. They were able to get all of those down and his temp was in the normal range when I left. They had wanted to remove the breathing tube today but couldn’t due to these issues. He was also more heavily sedated today.
    As far as getting help for myself, I’m not sure. My school offers 6 free counseling sessions and then it’s dirt cheap after that. I saw someone last semester but was less than thrilled with the experience because I felt like I wasn’t being taken seriously.

    Littleleaf! I feel like I haven’t “seen” you in forever, how have you been?

    hey choco – honey, i’m so sorry – try a different counselor – it took me a couple of tries to find the right fit

    sorry about the fever, etc. – i hope they get him stable & can start reducing the sedation – does his family live there, too?

    chant – sorry about the ER again! sheesh woman!

    dee’s comment 40 made me laugh, then dixie’s 48 pushed me over the edge – i get the reference :lol:
