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
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 !
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!
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
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
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????
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 Otterkinz.. happy to hear your mom’s surgery went well and she is home and recovering ! Each day should be better ! Sheeba… So nice for you to have your dd come and spend some time with you ! Enjoy your time together… going through stuff almost always brings back memories and a few laughs ! moms.. sorry you weren’t able to see ecowise.. I think it is supposed to be around until the 22nd… dee… what a find ! Webkinz with tags ! Whoo Hoo ! Bepsy… wondered the same thing about rotating the tree.. If anyone gets one let us know !

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 – 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.
