    Hope the volcano in your house has cooled down a bit, Moms! Ponytails are okay. I used to always have long hair and pull it back in the hot weather. But my preference now is shoulder length. Don’t want to go to hairdresser yet. My dh has been going to a neighbor who has her own salon in her basement. She initially came to our driveway and cut his hair outside. Both wore masks. Now she is back in her salon, but still wears masks and disinfects everything. I guess I could arrange to go to her, but I”m choosing to just stay put most of the time.

    Not sure if I’m ready for elections in RL or WW. I think the Mayoral balloon with Sophie’s face is scary. I wonder how big the stone is?

    The next Adventure Challenge starts tomorrow. July 18 to July 24
    4 speed classes
    3 wheel of wow spins
    Adventure Trail Mix recipe to make backpack

    My comment went to trash! Not sure what I said that was offensive!

    Anyway, Goodnight!

    Good Morning !
    Early morning errands are done… happy to be back home …
    Love the new garden stone and candy floss ! New prizes are always fun.. The trick is to get them !
    dee.. I vote for baseball cap and skip shower… If your weather is anything like OH… mid 90’s today ! you can always shower later. Hope you find something fun !
    April.. how are you and Stella doing ?? Hope all is well with you !
    moms.. hope the volcano has not erupted ! Himself is close because still no news about dorm space from OSU… should have gotten some updates yesterday but email from university said no news until end of next week !
    So frustrating for these kids who are all wondering about fall classes !
    Sheeba… You are are quite a night owl ! but I would guess the house is quiet and you can have some WW time !
    Hope you all have a nice day !

    Good afternoon Gymbo’s friends!

    I just wanted to stop by and update you all on my mom! Surgery was a success and the doctors were supposedly really happy with how everything turned out. She spent one night overnight in the hospital and came home the next afternoon. They wanted her to stay two nights, but with all the COVID-19 patients there, my mom was adamant about getting home as soon as possible. The first day was really hard. I spent at least a half hour trying to help my mom get up from a chair. We ended up having to call my brother over to physically lift her up. Then there was getting her in and out of bed… My brother and I spent at least 45 minutes trying to help her get up that first day. Thankfully, she is getting better every day. I still have to run up and down the steps to get her food and drinks, help with putting her clothes on, etc., but she’s definitely making progress. She hasn’t gone downstairs once since getting home, but today she is thinking about trying to go down the steps to see how that might go!! I will, of course, be on stand-by to help in case it’s too soon for steps.

    Before I forget – I just want to say thank you to those of you who have been sending marshmallows back to me for my collections! I haven’t had much time for Webkinz lately, but I’m trying to make sure that I at least do the marshmallow collection every day. So, thank you!!

    I hope all of you are doing well, staying safe, and are having a nice weekend!

    hey everyone!

    i LOVE these items! i think they did a good job with the stone & floor tile

    i want more plants – grasses, rocks, trees, too

  8. momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 3:24 pm

    hey gaga – agree – TOO HOT here to shower first!

    went to a little farmer’s market this morning, but it was more baked goods & crafts than veggies. bought dh a couple of tomatoes, but he doesn’t like squash & that was about all else they had

    housing assignments changed for some, not sure what is happening – it sounds like a lot of schools are also having students choosing to stay remote for fall or take a gap year

    we are waiting to see what classes are being delivered with an in person component . . . i heard a rumor that ballet was only virtual for fall??? that seems like a class that should be prioritized in person, so idk what is happening

  9. momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 3:50 pm

    otterkinz – i am so glad to see the good news & progress for your mother!

    ah stairs after surgery are quite an adjustment! maybe she can go down a few, then go back up for the first attempt – the full staircase might be a lot

    i am glad you are seeing improvement & hope that has helped you be able to relax a little ♥

    QoS – i retrieved your comment

    you said “elections” – that definitely scares me! :lol:

    (the word “Mayoral” sent you to the naughty bin – just say Mayor ;-) )

    volcano kid is better today, but we don’t dare stoke it LOL

    i think we are going to the top of a mountain to try to see the comet neowise tonight

  11. 11 dee said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

    good golly it is HOT

    i spent a whopping thirteen dollars at the yard sale this morning
    ten dollars on a pretty crock and three bucks on webkinz.
    yep – webkinz
    these people had ones i had never seen before and they were all in really good condition…………bought a snake for the cats to play with. i had never seen one altho i have one off of the trading cards…………and as i shamelessly dumped the whole big box out and picked thru them………..i found two with tags

  12. 12 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 4:01 pm

    dee – yay for tags! two tags for $3 – nice!

  13. 13 dee said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 4:02 pm

    we have too many trees to see the comet…………one site i saw said look northeast and another said look northwest…………so no clue which way to look

  14. 14 dee said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 4:03 pm

    oh yeah!
    my pet will not wake up in webkinz world!
    i was trying to get it up to go to stove for the challenge……..just keeps putting out the zzzzzzzzzzzzzs

    switched pets and did the school thing and then switched back and it is still snoozing and will not get up

  15. 15 dee said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 4:05 pm

    ikr moms!

    i googled to see the psi’s………….and saw one is for sale on amazon for 75 bucks

    cray cray

    makes me wonder if i should have kept all my pets instead of ripping tags off of all but a few………but then i have no clue how to online sell things

    Hello all!!

    Gosh, it’s been a few weeks. Hope all are well!

    We’ve been trying to get as much as we can done before/if things get bad again with the virus. Monday I had a plumber and AC guy here (all wearing masks) and a 3 man crew digging the new drainage trench in the front yard.

    dee—I think I read a post from you about feeling very blah right now. I feel the same way. I truly thought things would be better than they are right now.

    gaga—HI, We are good here. Stella just started a new K9 sent detection class and she loves it! She was really good at it. Instructor called her methodical. LOL So hoping things don’t get worse here, I’ll be heartbroken if class shuts down again. If that happens the instructor won’t be able to recover financially. It’s just her, she doesn’t have any employees so she doesn’t qualify for any small business assistance. I feel for himself. My nephew should be starting his first year of college and it’s all messed up too. They are saying the same thing, partial on-line learning and possibly some in person classes. It sounds like a mess and don’t know how they are doing to accomplish this.

    moms—Sent email. Hope the volcanoes have settled down for you and Sheba :) My hair lady shocked me with the same news…that she had gotten on a plane and visited her mom in FL!!!!! I just don’t get people. She only flew one way, down there and drove home. Thank goodness we were both wearing masks and I saw her sanitize everything before I came into her shop. I don’t blame you one bit for being freaked out.

    Otter—Great news about your mom! So happy she is home and recovering well. You and your bother are taking wonderful care of her. I’m sure she is so appreciative of you both. <3

    LL and bepsy—Thank you for all your work on the WPG! I refer to it often.

    I got a Viola Patio Plant in the latest growing seeds box. It gives a Viola Shortbread. I'd be happy to send to anyone if they would like some!

    Is the new Holiday Silver Tree in the estore driving anyone else crazy? There is a missing red ornament right in the front!! How can ganz not notice that bare spot????

  17. 17 dee said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 6:15 pm


    i was doing some research for a friend……….have you looked at local utility rebates/tax credits for your new gas?

  18. 18 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 7:04 pm

    i saw northeast & northwest too, but i checked 3 or 4 more sources that all said northwest, so i’m going somewhere that i can see both, but focusing more on nw

    that’s my plan anyway

  19. 19 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 7:09 pm

    hey april!!!

    dee – girl, i can help you sell that code! shoot! that’s good $$$

    April- Now that you mention the bare spot on the Christmas tree, I can’t stop staring at it.

  22. 22 april1013 (wwid: zeker1013) said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 10:17 pm

    DEE!!! What new gas? ….who’s got gas? I had no idea there we rebates in my area. I will have to look into that. Super awesome on finding webkinz with tags!

    So HOT here too. I walk outside and my glasses immediately fog up. HUMID!

    hey moms!!! We have too many tall trees to see as well….bummer.

    LL LOL…you’re welcome. :mrgreen:

    July 18, 2020 @ 10:54 pm

    too cloudy

    oh well, no comet viewing

  24. 24 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 10:55 pm

    we have too many trees, so we drove to a mountain top :D

  25. 25 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    July 18, 2020 @ 11:20 pm

    april – please get webkinz to fix that tree

    i can’t unsee it now

    July 18, 2020 @ 11:46 pm

    Thanks for retrieving my comment, moms! I’ll try not to be naughty! ;)
    I like the outdoor items, too. Stone walkways, bushes, trees, flowers, etc.

    Gaga – Yep, I’m a night owl. I probably go to bed close to when you get up! Well, I used to…I’ve been trying to go to bed earlier. My problem this week is going to bed by midnight (ish) and then waking up several hours later for two or three hours and then going back to sleep again! Not my usual pattern. Last night, I slept all the way through and I felt much better today!

    I think colleges/universities (or most schools, for that matter) don’t know what to do yet! And then I just read a report about CDC reporting inaccurately. Very difficult times!

    April – Nice to see you!

    Dee – Great finds! Nice to find two pets with codes! Is it one of the new ones that won’t wake up from the sleepy state?

    Otterkinz – Glad your mom is recovering and doing well overall! Sounds like you have had some challenges!

    My sis is moving from NY to FL next month! From one hot spot to another!
    Sigh! So far she has stayed healthy!

    Oh my! I agree about the silver Christmas tree in estore! Crazy! I hope they fix that!

    I’m so excited…my oldest dd is coming for several days to help me go through stuff! So if you don’t see me around for a while, you will know why!

    Okay, if I want to meet the midnight goal, I need to say goodnight! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

It has been super humid and hot here as well… Expecting mid nineties again today but better chance of thunderstorms this afternoon…Getting together with sister and himself today for dinner and a visit… Serving beef tenderloin steak baked potato and green bean casserole.. and corn on the cob because himself does not eat casserole ! Making s’mores for dessert ! Yum

  32. 32 Grandma001 said,

    July 19, 2020 @ 7:10 am

    Dee – thought I’d look to see if I could find the tree. Believe me, if you had gone to the estore, you can’t miss it. It’s that obvious.

  33. 33 dee said,

    July 19, 2020 @ 7:57 am

    thanks grandma!

    hoping dh gets up soon so we can do our errand before it gets toooo hot
    altho it already is
    feel sorry for the folks without a/c

    growing up, we did not have it………….but not a lot of people we knew did, so we did not know what we were missing

    we will probably try to see the comet again tonight – hopefully less cloudy . . .

    July 19, 2020 @ 4:03 pm

    Yes, April started something! That tree really bugs me! I would hope that you could rotate the mistake away!

    Gaga – Between you & Dee ….I always get hungry all of a sudden!

    Happy Sunday!

    Good Morning All !
    Yet another new challenge ! Sophie is asking for Pizza Parlor which is the game of the day…. and Link’d …one of 4 tries this morning ! Not having much luck with Fiona Feathers !
    Finally had some much needed rain last night but not nearly enough..
    Having lunch ( outside and early ) with a couple of friends.. Haven’t seen one of them for over a year… so anxious to catch up on RL ! Lives out of state.
    Will be careful and dine/dash! Haven’t been out with friends in forever… need a break from all this craziness..sadness.. and uncertainty.
    moms.. hope you are able to see the comet tonight ! Himself texted me late afternoon yesterday… He received his housing for the fall…4 kid arrangements instead of the 16 he had last year..all three of the kids were his suite mates from last year… One however is from LA and will not be coming if classes are all virtual… The twins will also join their suite.. He is happy.. newer dorm.. A/C but no common area… Has move in date… Now needs to get his classes figured out … virtual/in person…
    dee.. a pool sounds wonderful..keep trying !
    April.. have same problem with my glasses ! supposed to be a bit cooler today…88 ! I think our governor is having news conference but not sure if it is today…. would be my only opportunity to hear live what he has to say.. So afraid he will announce stay at home again…I just wish people would mask up !
    Hope you all have a good day !

    LL- no… which storage item are you using?

  44. 44 littleleaf32 (ylime32) said,

    July 20, 2020 @ 1:35 pm

    Boper- I’ve tried a few different storage items: Safe and Sound Mini-Locker, Sweetheart Dresser. It just pops up with a message saying it cannot be stored, but other clothing items do.

  45. 45 bepsy aka bepoodlepal said,

    July 20, 2020 @ 2:20 pm

    LL – I haven’t had any issues, but have you tried the regular red and blue locker from the wshop? Those usually work when nothing else does. If it helps at all, mine are stored in the tween theme teal dresser.

  46. 46 littleleaf32 (ylime32) said,

    July 20, 2020 @ 3:12 pm

    Bepsy- I actually have that item and they work to be stored in there. Thanks for the tip!

    July 20, 2020 @ 4:36 pm

    no comet viewing last night – we made a mistake & didn’t follow my first instinct on where to go, and we couldn’t get a good line of sight

    i think we will try again tonight

    has anyone seen the neowise comet?

    i need to go visit sophie
