otterkinz – sounds like you could use a day of rest! i hope it is not the medication – maybe a change in weather or something bringing on the migrane – i get very dizzy and nauseous sometimes with migranes. last time i felt really bad the day before then it hit. do you have any peppermint lotions or oils or anything? I find that helps if i put a touch on the back of my neck & temples as far as I can from my eyes
LL – awwww – RubyCubes is so sweet & generous!!!
dixie – it’s a loss . . . it might not seem important to him, but it is a part of your daily life, & it’s not about a kid’s site as much as it is about the friendships & connections. i wouldn’t still be on Webkinz if it wasn’t for Gymbo’s – it’s the people that make it special. that being said – YIPPEEE! WI is back!
I never bought any of the adventure park stuff, so I’m excited for this one. Haven’t been on ww much lately because I’ve been busy so I’ve been slacking off on the challenges. Does anyone have extras on the couch/chair from June’s deluxe challenge or the coffee table that comes with the trophy challenge that ends today? I have some of the recent deluxe challenge and deluxe day stuff if you want to do a trade.
hey oh! checking in………..dh wants to do a mini road trip tomorrow (only 2hrs there) so i just ginned up some choco chip cookie dough! gonna make that paula deen meatloaf (with the oats) this week with all of the rain forecast (which means it will not rain!)
and them lovely oven roasted veggies……..waiting on dd to not be busy to skype us……….
Hey Dee, that just sounds like all kinds of YUM! When we get a forecast for rain here …it gunna rain. It gunna Thunder, it gunna knock out the power. So, I don’t even plan for dinners on those days. Lately we been eatin’ sammidges…lots ‘n’ lots of sammidges .Grouchy sammidges, PB N J sammidges, Tuna sammidges and once in a while PIZZA! Now we are finally getting sunshine and we will probably barbecue. At least there are some creative Barbecue recipes out there where it isn’t just scorched meat. I have gotten to the point where if I see another sandwich I might just drink a gallon of water instead. And I hate water.
Arte is telling me on my Asian account that the first rare will be at 6 pm. This is a good thing because the Community challenge that goes with those free appreciation backpacks starts, tomorrow, too.
Choco, I am sorry. I only finished one of the Chair and sofa sets. I probably won’t finish the next deluxe, either. I don’t like pet buddies. It looks like I might have talked myself into a position So my time will definitely be limited, in both places.
Moms, you couldn’t be more RIGHT. It was never about the site. It was what it offered; community, friendship, and a sense of belonging somewhere. If that place shut down, I will tell you, right now, this is the only other place I would ever consider coming to. I found it FIRST when my granddaughter was little and I wanted to know more about Webkinz. It has changed the way it works in that time. But I got some of my best information off here. The Gem hunters chart I posted in the Curio shop MANY years ago? It came from elubin. My first ever blog post was HERE when I posted tips for Tulip Trouble 2. I was so excited to see Eric publish my name, here. I came here to look at rooms and I LOVED the way they encouraged people to post pictures of their rooms with what they thought should be in there and I THINK it was Boper who posted a picture of a room with bears on the bed instead of on the floor. He posted the way he thought the items should interface.
I know you’re all curious about how things are going here..still no real answers yet. And dh wbc count is going back up..still awaiting more tests. And I might have roped the cartilage in my right knee..sigh, the crap just never ends.. Just doing the best we can, and taking one day at a time. But thank you all for caring. It really means alot to me.
Hi Littleleaf, welcome! And welcome to all the other new comers here! I sent out some little gifts today to anyone who has an updated list. Absolutely nothing wanted or needed in return!
I can definitely understand the grief process associated with WI. I’ve never been part of that community, but I’ve been a regular in the Webkinz World trading room for over a decade. After finding out that Ganz has no plans to support Google applications or older versions of Windows, I’ve been slowing detaching from the game.
I don’t have much time to play anymore anyway due to my job and my daughter, but I’ve been redesigning my Webkinz house, organizing all my personal collection. I only want one of everything. Everything else I’m trading, giving away, or selling in the wshop.
I try to keep up with reading here at least every few nights, but I always end up falling asleep before I post. I’m dozing off now, but just want to pop in to say hi, I love you all, I hope you are well, and enjoy your little gifts! Hugs!
Chant- Thank you for the extra clothes you sent! So sweet of you to send! I really do love any clothing from the estore! I sent the dress along with a couple things I found on your wish list! Thank you for the awesome trade!
moms, I think just because you said I needed a “rest day” I was able to lay down for a bit yesterday afternoon. Funny you mention the lotion, as I sometimes put body butter — slightly thicker than regular lotion but still light enough that it’s not uncomfortable — on my forehead when I have a really bad headache or migraine. I have this “special” one that’s no longer sold in stores, so I only use it when my head REALLY hurts. I went ahead and put a nice layer of that on and took a good, 4 hour “nap”. I was still pretty tired when I woke up, but I felt so much better.
Dixie, I agree with moms about your husband not understanding how important Gymbo’s, WI, and the likes are to you. Though, I can’t say I’m not in the same boat as you… Family knows my Webkinz are very important to me, but don’t necessary get why or what all I really do in a day to make sure I’m staying up-to-date on events, challenges, codes, etc. while still leaving time for my blog/forum friends. I think they think I just do the same things over and over every day, and that because Webkinz was originally a game aimed at children, extra things like trophy challenges shouldn’t really take that long because young children should be able to complete them fairly easily…
dee, have fun of your mini road trip!
Chant, I hope you get some answers soon! And sorry about your knee! My left knee has been hurting quite a bit lately, so I sympathize with your pain!
Is the Pirate Doubloon new or has that been given away before? I’ve never seen nor do I have it, so I’m hoping we are able to reach the goal for that prize on the 18th.

otterkinz – i am glad you were able to rest! just stopping to breathe & “be still” makes a big difference in my overall well being – i pray pray pray, too, but you can do whatever suits your beliefs or things you can do to find some peace, find some inner quiet for yourself . . . i hope you are feeling better every day
Good Morning ! First post must have gone to the trash container…. not very newsy anyway! moms… heading back to work tomorrow ! (sniff sniff).. but I guess I am ready to take on the MONSTER again !

Nice to see you, Ruby! ♥ Chant – Nice relaxing room! The perfect way to rest your knee! Sorry to hear about your knee troubles! I can relate, although my knees aren’t bothering me presently. Dixie & Moms – I appreciate all the nice comments that were said about me on the previous thread. Thanks so much! Moms – Thanks for the adventure park link, prime day heads up, etc. Otter – Hope you are feeling better soon! Physically and in every way! Gaga – Wishing you a smooth, back to work entry this week! Dee – I took note of the place to go that you recommended. Maybe we will visit there someday.
Yesterday we took a day trip to visit my d-i-l’s family. They invited us to a picnic at their house since d-i-l is in states briefly. Four of my five kiddos came, with the exception of my son (the husband of said d-i-l) who is still at their home overseas. Anyway, three of our kiddos rode in our van. One of them w/her husband came from a different direction. It was SO much fun! We had grilled burgers, broccoli salad (that I brought), grilled corn on the cob, watermelon, and ice cream. There was a wide selection of beverages. Even though it was incredibly hot & muggy, there was a nice breeze, plus appropriately places fans on the patio. At least two dozen people were there. Anyway, I had a “Gaga” type of Sunday with family. ♥
Emma, glad you liked the extras I sent! Thank you for trading with me! I’ll go in ww soon to see tge dress! I love anything sparkly, in kind of a magpie in real life..I’ll LOVE rhinestones! Maybe I’ll send moms a RL pic of my girlie looking blinged. Out bathroom to post..lol
Hi gaga! I can’t remember everything on my list. But those in the pic are from the estore the mystery bag. They are a pool house and a hot tub. I don’t remember exact names, sorry! So to answer your question, no they aren’t . Lol
Otter, hope you are feeling better. Migraines suck. Hugs!
Gaga, yeah things are still up in air, dh has to get blood work done tommorrow to check his wbc count again. Still waiting for an MRI appt. For the leg he had surgery done on. Insurance is taking its time approving it! Ugh!!! Thank you for your kind words. I love this blog and the friends I have made here..I consider this like a second home and family.
Good Morning All ! Sheeba… your family day sounds great ! Nothing better than a family cookout ! moms.. thanks for fishing post out of trash ! Heading back to work today.. Ready to go ! Otterkinz.. Hope you are feeling better this morning…Almost nothing worse than a migraine… Chants..hope the MRI gets the approval soon.. Insurance companies have way too much control over our medical needs… I called to get a Dermatology appointment yesterday…Booking in January !!! Was not too happy… but will fit me in with NP in mid September…. Nephew attending 2 day orientation at OSU… SO hope that he gets enthusiastic about going there…Anxious to hear all about it ! Hope you all have a good day….♥
