Okay, I’m really grateful I can work from home, I don’t have kids of my own to homeschool, I have my energy and health but MAN I think I look forward to Fridays now, more than I did before.
I spend Sunday-Fri now just anxious like I should be doing something even when I’ve already done all my work and checked in with families. Some weekdays have less work than weekends yet I can still only enjoy Saturdays it seems!!
I have a precious 20 minutes of alone time while dh is running with Stella. Good grief I love that man, but I need a break. I read a post yesterday on FB that read … “Thinking of getting divorced…over toast crumbs…” We all are feeling it. And then the other spectrum of peeps that have been completely on their own. They are having a time too.
Chant—I will have to look up the post of the lady hiding from her husband in a closet. Pretty sure I can relate. lol I love the name Prickles!
dee—When I graduated I needed money, but it sounds like you want to get dd a nice gift. Does she need a new laptop or ipad? I like gaga’s jewelry idea too. Business clothes, furniture…all good ideas. Ditto the sunny kitchen island for our real houses.
I can’t believe I’ve been busy the last couple of days….with what I have no idea, but I just seem to go from one task to another. I intended to visit here and wish everyone a Happy Webkinz Day! But the day got away from me and then I had to sign onto all of my side accts.
gaga—It must be going around. I had a rough day yesterday as well. Teared up several times. Dh kept asking me if I was alright which didn’t help. I’m not a crier, so it was uncomfortable for me. I’m better today, glad you are too. Work will help. Glad they are putting measures in place to keep everyone safe.
I just order some disney masks!!! They are now taking ‘pre-orders’ that will be shipping in July. Ordered anyway…Can’t wait from my baby yoda mask.
Looking forward to all the new monthly activities. Got to think of a name for my Tulip Pony!
Kelly – Just checked here briefly to see what was happening. I’ll have to check on the fridge. Not good at that game so I may not have an extra. No WW time today so I’ll try to check when I get back on Saturday night or Sunday.
Hi guys! I know I have never posted on here before, but I wanted to give it a try. I just discovered this website a few days ago, and it’s really helpful so far! You all seem so nice, I hope everyone is doing well!!
graciegirl – help us get to know you – i assume you play webkinz? how long have you played? are you over 18? is GracieGirl44 your webkinz id?
i’m momskinz – i’ve been on the blog since early 2008 – gymbo aka gymboutiques started this blog (hence the name), and at some point i became an admin, then when she stopped playing webkinz she asked me if i would continue it . . . and here we are many years later
i have two teen sons that got me started playing on their accounts to earn them kinzcash, then i found this place, and well . . . i’m still here
okay REALLY funny new update though . . . i’m sitting here doing Webkinz stuff, and both boys are playing animal crossing! i cannot lure them back to webkinz, but freaking animal crossing has blown up during quarantine
the oldest has a switch lite, so the youngest just jumped on our old old wii – it’s so funny!
Yes I am on Webkinz, and this is my username, (I did not know what else to put and I assumed since this is a Webkinz blog it would make sense XD) I am under 18, and I used to play Webkinz all the time when I was little but recently started to get into it again, of course I still love it!! I read the guidelines and I believe it said that I am allowed to join if I am under 18, if not I completely understand!
Moms- 😂 probably a good thing they didn’t get me diamonds. I wear the same three pieces of jewelry everyday and I think I’d be too scared to wear diamonds. Well of course until I finally get the bling ring.
Gracie- welcome!! I started here when I was a tween and now I’m in my mid twenties
i need to do a search – where did i get this “beyond be-leaf cactus”? i can’t remember but i want more or am going to have to relocate them from Ponderosa’s (longhorn steer) ranch to my cactus room . . .
Never really thought about it but I’m twice as old as when I started here as well. Crazy. I feel old. My graduation was supposed to be today so who’s sending me diamonds? I will also accept a check. Naki – I also get that weird anxious feeling about thinking you have stuff you should be doing. I literally have nothing that I need to be doing but I’m so used to having so much to do that it just feels unnatural.
Our weather has been suspiciously nice recently. We don’t always get that here in Michigan. I’m looking into grad schools down south because I’m over the weather here. If I end up going down there I don’t think I’ll come back.
happy graduation day to my lumos granted she does not come on here, but we are very happy and proud parents. and this so beats trying to figure out what to wear!
we went to a state park on a hike……….this one was much better, altho they really need to work on there maps and difficulty levels and measuring of distances. supposedly a one mile easy hike! to me, means a grandma or a five year old could do it HA! thankfully the last one was awful, so this was fun and we did not have to use hand sanitizer once…………..
moms- they are okay. The district has been able to provide most families with tablets now. Although we only have 15 school days left. Out of my 19 most are doing something at least once a week. And then I have about 5-6 families that complete all assignments each week.
Speaking of Georgia. I was just talking to my dad about moving to ATL today
Dee – I briefly thought about moving to establish residency but I will likely be applying to schools in multiple states, so I won’t know what state it will be until after I get accepted. I’m also aiming to start in fall 2021, so I’d have to move like now and I’m not moving in the middle of this nonsense.
I was supposed to go to NOLA for spring break and we cancelled and thank goodness, so that will be one of my first trips back. I’m glad I made it to NYC in mid February before all of this blew up. Little did we know…
Stella has gone in the laundry room and chewed up two wash cloths in the last hour. Never mind it looks like I have five toddlers with all of her toys all over the house. She’s over me being at the computer. Later peeps.
makin my oven roasted veggies tonite dh had a leftover rutabaga, cuz he made pasties (?) choco help! and we are doing the stuffed chicken breast with sun dried tomatoes, green olives, garlic and balsamic
dee – congrats again to lumos! i hope the fireworks & toast reflected your pride in her!!!
april – you have a naughty toddler! LOL
naki – happy to talk with you about it – my boys have been in two different school districts, and my sister taught in another – i grew up in a different suburb, went to college downtown, and have lived & worked in a few different places around the city, so i know a lot about the metro area

Hope you had a great evening of celebration ! Another milestone in her life and yours…Now begins the next chapter ! moms.. First real day back to work… The day went smoothly… all patients were tested for virus prior to coming.. Procedures spaced to that no one waited in the waiting room.. Family members waited in their cars.. Enough staff …All in all a good day… Normally an early riser ( 4 am ) so I am usually tired by the time I get home…dinner.. load of laundry.. And yes … I am probably one of the most Senior ( age wise ) members of the blog !! Not sure how old Krafty is though…but I am still pretty feisty and keep myself busy ! April.. Stella is adorable !! I know I have mentioned how cute her ears are !! and that face……so sweet !! Wondering if you think she may have some Dalmation in her… noticing some spots…My last and best dog was a Dalmation and she was very mischievous.. just like Stella ! She too was a one in a million dog ! Choco… my new niece in law pursued post graduate Psychology degree..chose university in Florida for their program… Recently graduated… and joined a practice where she did her internship and presently seeing clients virtually !! Naki… nice to meet you ! Happy you have the time to return to the blog Hope you all have a great day ! Finally have a Spring like day here ! Warm and sunny ! Finally
Hi everyone! Sorry if this posts twice. This is a question for Dixiecup since I think she still pops in here sometimes, but if anyone else can help I’d be so grateful. I’m trying to create an account on Webkinz Insider, but the registration form doesn’t work and the “Contact us” page also has an invalid verification image. What other options are there? Thanks so much
Sorry about the heat Naki, it’s finally nice here in Wisconsin. Was a beautiful day in the 70s. Dh and I did some yard work.
gaga—Thanks It’s possible she has some Dalmatian in her. Her mom was a German Shepherd/Pit mix. I didn’t meet the dad, but they told me he was a Lab/Border Collie mix, so I assume the black spot are from him. But with mixes like that Dalmatian could be in there somewhere. Your dog sounds like she was pretty special. Hope you were able to enjoy some nice weather today too.
nita—Sending Tulip stuff. No need to send anything in return, just enjoy!
dee—Congrats to your dd!! Hope you all had a great night celebrating. I love my tulip pony, but cannot decide on a name yet.
Good Morning All ! moms.. not offending by the age comments ! All is good… Weather was beautiful yesterday… Sunshine sure does help to lift spirits… my brother came over yesterday to help me with a few outside chores…Had lunch and a nice visit which seems like such a long time since we were able to get together ! Hope to be able to have our Sunday gatherings soon ! April… Happy you were able to enjoy some nice weather too ! I am sure Stella was right there with you helping too ! Himself has called me to chat the past 4 days ! I know he is relieved that his finals are finished as well as the semester.. Fall classes at OSU remain uncertain… but decision will be made by the end of June… Our governor is planning on announcing some further openings…so hoping that hair salons will be able to open soon ! I am all for safety and I think he has done a fantastic job… but would love to get my hair done… I had forgotten to mention how much I enjoyed the video of the lady hiding in the closet ! I haven’t laughed so much in quite a while !! Adding it to my favorites !! Thinking about naming my Tulip Pony.. Horse with No Name !! dee.. what’s cookin ? Hope you had a great celebration with your family ! Did you make a decision on dd’s gift ?? Naki… what section of the country do you live ? KinzGram… sounds like you and your granddaughter have a very special bond…Hope all these kids are able to head off to college in the fall… but dorm living and class sizes are such a big consideration…Boy this virus sure has caused such heartbreak..and what a life changing event it has been for the world ! Hope you all are well and enjoy your Sunday !
Happy Sunday Peeps!!!! April, Thank you so much love! Stella is adorable as ever!!! My doggos are looking ( and smelling ) pretty rough lol. Taking them down today for baths and nail trimming and all. They are too big and furry for us to attempt to do this ourselves lol. Hope everyone has an amazing day!!!
gaga- originally from Chicago area close to the lake. Used to colder weather, although summers are usually nice. Now I live in the Gateway to the West! I don’t think people realizes how hot and humid it gets here once the weather turns. Almost like some southern states…
Rainy today and now Sunday’s are like a 6th work day for me with virtual learning. But I’ll pop in later! Have a great day everyone
Today’s weather was perfect here. Did my Sunday 10k to round out my running goal for the week and it was 70 but a beautiful spring breeze. So thankful for this good weather. Going to rain here the next 2 days I think. Which is probably good, because it’ll force me to get my work done. Teachers are not meant to work from home.
I love dressing up my pets but I know I have some who have been wearing the same outfits for a decade. Oh well, at least they look cute. Momz – probably gonna steal the name Tulip for my spring raccoon thing that I still haven’t adopted.
Good Morning All ! Have to agree about wigs… not my favorite… Love the bows! moms… thanks for all of the suggestions ! Loved the lady in the closet video so much that I may name my Tulip Pony… Horse with No Name… not sure it will fit! gramma001… congrats on the soon to arrive great grandson !! I am heading toward the day when I reach the age where they say I can retire and collect SS We’ll see how things go… but for now I am ready to cut down … but not retire. Weather forecasters here are using the “s” word this weekend ! It was beautiful yesterday but sounds like we are not finished with the cold weather yet ! Had been scheduled for hair appointment this Friday…. but that’s not going to happen….Salons not opened up yet ! Who knows how long I will have to wait once they do open.. Dread the thought. Back to work today…Hopefully all will go well… Have a great day everyone !
Just stopping in to say hi! Read up on comments, but can’t hardly keep my eyes open. When I saw one of the comments about dressing pets up, I thought we were talking about real pets for a moment. But really it’s Webkinz pets, DUH! I need to come back when I am more coherent… I’m not even sure if that’s the right word at this point!!
I do have to say I loved the names moms put out there for the Tulip Pony!!! After seeing a side view of the pony on Webkinz Newz I became convinced that I must have her. I will keep those names in mind for whenever the pony goes on sale (and when I actually have eStore Points to spend!).
