LL – That’s alright. I figured that since you’ve been feeling sick you haven’t played much. I just wanted to make sure I didn’t hallucinate sending that gift to you.
The area I live in in Texas has had a really warm winter. The lowest high was 52 on 1/1 while the lowest low was 31 on 12/22, 12/31, and 1/4. We were lower than 60 once and that was on 1/1. Other than that since 12/21 we’ve been 60 or higher. It hit 80 on 1/10.
Good Morning All ! moms… sent the chair…I hope you and your mom had a nice outing yesterday ! I sure did ! Took a leave of absence from RL … Got my hair cut and colored… pedicure… went to Olive Garden for lunch ( delicious) and stopped at the mall to pay a bill….was wondering around looking at all the sales and I heard a really nice tune………..wondered where it was coming from and realized my purse was playing the music !!! It was my new phone !! Burst out laughing…. back to reality… it was my mom……..and no caregiver ! Someone failed to inform me that she would be without one for 3 hours in the afternoon….Back to RL !! Emma… Jaw dropping moment when I opened your gifts !! Thank you so much Made my whole day !!! ♥♥ Himself arrived home safely last night before the winter storm today.. Looks like we got 3 inches of snow overnight… Predicted to turn into freezing later this morning…and changing to rain this afternoon… Few errands to run but as always… slow and steady wins the race ! Celebrating one of my brother’s birthday tomorrow at family get together.. need to pick up his cake which usually is a one hour trip in good weather.. Hopefully I will have time later to read through everyone’s posts and address them properly ! Hope all is well with each of you ! Have a good day !
gaga – sorry you got torn from your break from reality yesterday but hope you are loving your hair & toes!
glad himself made it home before the storm but wish you didn’t have to go so far in the snow. you are always so good to your family – you really are the one doing special things for EVERYONE all of the time! i don’t know if you hear it often enough, but THANK YOU for always being so kind to all of us!
hi all finally got around to watching downton abbey! dh insisted i watch on the big living room tv……….sadly, i had no clue how to work the dvd thing there…….took about four hours……….as i am up and down doing whatnot………..one of the reasons why i do not like going to the movie theater….. anyways, it was GOOD and i made dh a half batch of cream cheese brownies for his bday tomorrow. hope everyone is having a fab saturday and do not forget the deluxe log in thing
Gaga, omg!, I would have been livid! And I guarantee I would not be nice about it, that kind of mistake could be really bad. I am so sorry you got pulled away from pampering yourself!!! I hope you are loving your hair and nails, moms right, you really deserve it! That being said….my friends have been bugging me to go with to do feet…but how the heck does anyone not worry about having someone mess with their feet??? I’m too scared I’d end up getting an infection!! But I do love foot massages…
I’m due for having my hair done…I usually get a spiral perm..my hair is almost to my butt..dh likes bigger waves…thinking of trying bigger waves this time…it’s very expensive for my length, and takes hours to do..wondering if I go bigger if it would be faster….then I color it 2 weeks after myself. Been waiting for dh to give in and go with me to get a perm…just to put some body back in his hair…illness has a way of taking that away. He’s thinking about it. But he’s also ready to get his hair dyed. He’s only 52, and completely white…genetic, like his dad. It really makes him look 10 years younger!
My dh is one of those alfa males…ex biker, yes a real biker as he puts it, not a weekend warrior! That man has been to every state except Hawaii on that Harley..the stories are out of this world..I’m so glad he gave the life style up. But everywhere we go he runs in to people that know him! He’s definately a rememberable person. He gave it up for me…I just couldn’t do the long rides, and then after the accident in 2015, even though it wasn’t his fault, he was so messed up that I got hurt bad, he fixed the bike and garaged it. He starts it up as needed to keep it running.
His Harley is an antique now. And fully restored. It’s our son’s inheritance. He’s thinking of giving it to him soon, cause it’s not good for them to sit too long. It’s sad in a way..cause I feel like he’s stopped riding because I can’t anymore. I have PTSD bad and took a long time to be able to ride in a car without panicking as it is, not sure I would want to try getting back on, I’m afraid I’d throw him off balance if I panicked. Riding was his life for a long time…not to mention, he’s pretty hot looking riding the Harley…vroom vroom! Lol
Moms, that’s what he says…but still, I know how much he loves to ride. But my getting hurt as bad as I did, really bothered him and he basically said, if I can’t ride with him, he doesn’t want to ride alone..we both really enjoyed it.
Good Morning Everyone ! moms .. Thank you for all of your kind words… Nice to be appreciated ! Makes everything so much easier ! Will you be watching the games today ?? dee… Your team is playing today at 3 pm !!! They are playing against KC ! Should be a good game ! Long ago.. I learned if you can’t beat em… join em ! I have become a big fan of most sports but love football ! Try it .. you might like it .. especially if there is a hometown connection… Chants… Sorry your dh had to give up riding his Harley… but sounds like you have made so many happy memories ( and some not so good) with him ! As I mentioned yesterday family day will be celebrating one of my younger brothers ! Serving his favorite… Beef tenderloin mashed potatoes and green bean casserole…Not to mention the cake !!! Himself will be joining us today..So anxious to visit with him and catch up on college life and of coarse he will want to talk about all of the news with our football team ! New coach and new GM ( still to be determined )… He loves talking politics too ! New snowfall overnight and so windy ! not to mention bitter cold ! Tomorrow there is yet another new challenge in WW..Was not so impressed with Scrambled prize but did finish 2 accounts… Hope you all have a great day… enjoy family and friends !
I had so much fun opening those PSF boxes! Thank you Foxblox, Cassie, and Emma for all of the PSF foods and items on my wish list. I loved scratching off those last two Lily Pad items and the promotional items. And to P3X17? I’m not remembering this ID, but thank you for the valentine items!
Foxblox, I can’t help but notice the time stamp on your messages … brings back memories! Hang in there.
Loved your story, Chant. Gaga, I want to come over for dinner. Those are some of my favorites, too!
Kids off to college … back to quiet life. I have to say, I really love both seasons. I have always liked quiet time.
I got a BIG surprise at 3am…all the alarms went off!!! I came flying out of bed…scared the poo right out of me!! Cat flew off the bed startled… I looked at the cameras, and there was a plow truck in my yard. ..freaked me out. Then I realized it was plowing our driveway! Apparently dhs bos! s let him drive a plow truck home so I didn’t have to do it!!! Woot woot!. ..but seriously, dh could have called and warned me!! Geesh…I about had a heart attack! But I’ll be nice about it cause I didn’t have to do it! Lol
Gaga, I LOVE what you’re eating!! Made me salivate just reading that!!! Nom nom nom! Lol
Me and the ex are cooking together today! Making chicken tenders, steamed broccoli, and sweet potato. And update on him…he’s now under 400 lbs!!!!!! 3 days ago he hit 397! So proud of him…he’s really making good progress..AND he went out side to clean up just a small area on sidewalk that dh couldn’t get with the plow..and he did it without oxygen on.. and for the first time he didn’t go low in oxygen while walking!!!
One month ago he would have been gasping for air without the oxygen, and his oxygen level would have plummeted to middle 80s. He is so excited!!! He hates the oxygen tanks, was worried he’d be on them for life. He is a lucky guy…I’m just glad when he got his,wake up, call that he took it seriously.. and he still has not gone back to drinking any alcohol. He finally realized how toxic it was for him to drink. He’s still got a long way to go, but every little milestone that he passes, gives him more strength to keep going!!
