    i wanted to ask why the sky was blue and things like that, but she does not know me, and might think i was a weirdo

    Good Afternoon !

    moms.. thanks for bringing calendar forward.. Looking forward to catching the fall leaves upcoming later this month ! Lots of new challenges and things to do !
    Hopefully you no severe effects from recent hurricane. So much devastation down South. Spending the day in Amish turned out to be such a nice day.. We both found a couple of trinkets, had a delicious lunch and nice visit. Hope to be able to return before Christmas.

    dee… I have tried to join in Cake Off fifteen minutes before the hour and was not able to join in…. Played today… despite showing 1st place… I won a bakers coat
    Was disappointed but oh well… maybe next time ! I think I am about 50 points behind you on the leader board… that’s interesting to know about the transfer of kc to NEXT..

    April .. Happy that Stella is enjoying the weather and chasing deer around her yard but really sorry to hear you are struggling with a knee injury… I am sure it makes day to day life difficult not to mention the pain and process of healing.

    Sheba… Sounds like you have lots of upcoming events to keep you busy !
    Hope you are able to find some quiet time to enjoy WW ! So much to keep up with at the beginning of new month.

    Amy… thank you for posting the code !

    Lots of beautiful pictures from one of my nephews who is vacationing in Alaska !
    Finally were able to see some moose bald eagles and so much beautiful scenery.
    Northern Lights still on their wish list… but having so much fun hiking and exploring the beautiful state.

    Hope you all are well… Hearing that first case of new Covid variant diagnosed in the county… Really hate to hear about increase in cases and having to go back to masking…

    its the flu going around here that is making people very very sick

    i have heard about an increase in covid too, but i’m pretty sure dh & his friend group all passed around the flu

  11. 11 momskinz (WWID: momsownkinz) said,

    September 1, 2023 @ 1:46 pm

    alaska trip sounds great – would love seeing moose, bald eagles, & the scenery in person

    i guess the college kids have started back to class – both of mine are back in the swing of things

    we aren’t going to our football game tonight since dh has been sick so we gave away our tix to my bil & dn & will be watching on tv

  12. 12 dee said,

    September 1, 2023 @ 1:47 pm

    speaking of acorns…

    guess what i got from placing in top twenty in the cake making thing?

    moms i know i only have one kid, but in my opinion, they always get sick when school starts up……..fall, winter break, spring break
    all them cooties coming together

    Thanks for the codes, Amy & Moms!

    April – Sorry about the knee issues! I have that from time to time….bursitis & for me, probably since I’m older….a little bit of arthritis! So ever few years I need to have the fluid drained from my knee. Did PT for a while, but it really doesn’t help the issue.

    Was able to participate in the cook-off event today. Got 2nd place (baker’s shirt) for my granddaughter and got 3rd for me – 200 KC. I’ve tried with a car for speed but somehow my pet always jumps out of the car during the event and has to run around instead. I haven’t figured that out yet.

    Gaga – I would be really mad if I did not get a proper prize for 1st place!

    Moms – Sorry that you dh is sick. Not fun. As far as Covid, there is an increase in our area around here. I’ve been tempted to mask when going out shopping, but I’m so sick of it I can’t quite get myself to do it. I guess I would if I had been exposed or if I was recovering.

    I think lil’ girl had some kind of bug yesterday. I picked her up a bit early from school and then after dinner, she threw up and said, “I burped.” So cute! We taught her the new word “vomit”… Anyway, my son said she is doing better today. He stayed home with her today. Hopefully, the rest of us will avoid whatever it was as we are going on vacation together.

    It is going to be really difficult for me to do the collection event on vacation especially the first part of it when lil’ girl is around. (She is not allowed much screen time as a 2 year old).

    Thanks for posting the calendar, Dee!

  16. 16 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    September 1, 2023 @ 2:11 pm

    Dee – I’m curious….what did you get? Was it 500 KC? That’s my guess!

    re 15

    that is so funny sheba
    we were flying down the interstate once with dd who was about 2 and a half

    and she had a “big cough” in the backseat

    funny as nothing now, but no fun pulling over on interstate with cars flying by as dh tried to clean it up. i am a sympathy puker…..just need sound or sight or smell……….so i was holding her and retching……thankfully before cell phone cameras
    but dh and i can get the other cackling talking about the big cough

  19. 19 Queen of Sheba (WWID: Royalmajesty) said,

    September 1, 2023 @ 3:28 pm

    That’s funny, Dee!
    The big cough for you and the burp for me! Ha ha!

    On a different note:
    I will not be tempted to open NEXT accounts for my eight classic that could be NEXT related. I will not open any more NEXT accounts. Two is enough. Two is enough. Two is enough. LOL! I hope my dd doesn’t regret that I haven’t opened a NEXT on her account. Yet….I will not be tempted. But the collection events in classic sent to NEXT is making it difficult for me. But you all are my witnesses. :):D

    my niece used to call it a “wet burp”

    so gross

    Any who is interested there is a rare in the NEXT curio shop… it is the Aztec calendar for 5200 kc…

    Hi Dee,

    Thank you. I have extra of Aquamarine, Diamond, emerald, garnet, peridot, ruby and topaz if you need any. If anyone needs one, let me know. I still need to get a blue zircon candle.

    Hi Everyone!

    I don’t get a chance to jump on here much these days. But Moms, I wanted to let you know about a weird glitch I’m having with this blog.

    This time, and another time recently, when I went to your codes page, which I usually check first, I got redirected to some weird ad type pages. Both times it started with an iphone ad from amazon? (Fake I assume. I clicked nothing.)

    I’m not sure, but I think it happens when I’m already on the codes page, and then I click on your title to come to the main page. After I close out of the weird ad pages, I re-load the code page and click on your title AGAIN, to go to the main page, and it works just fine. – I’m not sure what’s causing this, and IDK if anyone else has had this problem or already written about it, but I wanted to let you know. The first time I thought maybe I did something weird, but just now was the 2nd time it happened when I started on your Codes page.

    Not sure if my telling you is helpful at all, but wanted to let you know, in case you can check your logs and see your traffic and when I entered and wth happened next! I’ll try to pay more attention next time and see exactly where I click or something.

    Hope everybody is doing well! I’m sorry I’m not able to read and catch up (Life!) Hopefully someday soon!

    How is it September???

    And apparently there is an acorn event. I need to look at the calendar.

    Exhausted, bur stuff is here, stuff is in storage. Tomorrow I start going through boxes and figuring out where things are going. Feels so nice to sleep in my bed after a year, and especially after the air mattress the last couple of nights.

    Will try to check in and read up tomorrow.

    Topazz- Are we friends? cmpets4fun – I have lots of extras of all of the candles, happy to share. I should have time to pop on tomorrow.

    part timer-Moms is looking in to the redirect issue. I really should know more about that and how to fix it. Need to build out a website for practice, been too long. Maybe I will get to that this week.

    Off to bed

    Good Morning !

    Nothing new in Sheldon’s Shack today … for all you who are waiting for the arrival of the rubber duck !

    dee.. Cake Trophy Winner announced on WKN.. doesn’t say how many points they were able to get…. Wonder how anyone can get so many !

    moms… I was talking to a friend last night… and she was telling me that her BIL
    did not want to wait in line to make an appointment with Geek Squad.. He went home and googled it… Somehow it was not a valid site and he lost 24,000 dollars to the scam ! They apparently asked for much more info than required and they were able to access his bank account ! Makes me sick !! So many scammers out there.

    cmpets.. Happy you are getting somewhere ! I am sure there lots to do to get unpacked… if you need anything from WW let us know ! I am sure we can help.

    Hey Part Timer ! Thanks for letting moms know about your glitch… seems to be a bit of a problem for some..

    Sheba… resist the temptation to open another account !! Everything is so time consuming and sounds like you have so much going already !

    April.. Hope your knee problem is getting better ! College football starts today !

    Hope you all enjoy the day !

    Good morning! Thanks for the calendar information, Dee! Where does time fly?

    Moms – I didn’t notice that it was the same code! LOL! Usually I write them on my code sheet right away, but I didn’t this time. And “wet burp” is so funny!

    Gaga – Shocking about your friend’s bil! I bet he regrets not waiting in line now. Just think of all the time & hassle he has spent with the new problem.

    Topazz – I checked yesterday and I did not have extra blue zircon candle. Sorry about that!

    Good morning! Happy Saturday!

    I finally caught up reading! I had fallen behind about a month, but was determined to catch up before I posted. So fun catching up on everything. :)

    I am so late with this, but thank you Secret Santa! I didn’t see it right away, but found it later. Such a nice surprise! You all are the best. :)

    I am having the issue with the redirect, as well. I search “gymbos” in my browser, and it is usually the first choice. But the search engine has been having troubling finding it, and when I finally do, I’ll get redirected to the fake amazon site. I thought it was me, so I cleared cache and dumped library launch agents, so was actually relieved to find it wasn’t on my computer necessarily. Hoping Boper can find the issue.

    School is back in session, so the frantic busy-ness has set in. It is nice having the kids back, though. School has a much better feel to it this year … with several negative “student leaders” graduating or moving, and several new strong teachers that we are super happy about. The senior class has some really great kids, and the whole tone is different. Hoping it lasts through the whole year!

    My health journey continues as I adjust to the estrogen blockers. Would love to throw them in the trash most days, but am pushing through hoping my body adjusts. I am also pressing through with my other smaller issues (at least until the deductible resets), so still a lot of doctor visits. Doctors say to give yourself a year, so I’m almost there. May end up doing that carpal tunnel surgery as everyone who has done it is so happy afterward. We’ll see!

    LOL, the name of this post. :)
    Have a great day, everyone!

    dee – you’re the baker extraordinaire!

    miracle – so good to hear from you! i hope you adjust to the estrogen blockers & keep that cancer far far away from you!

    cmpets – glad you are finally able to settle in to your own place for a while! let me know if you think you can tinker around with it or tell me what to look for on here

    part timer – thanks for the information on the redirect thing, i haven’t been able to figure it out, but we are aware & are trying to get some help

    gaga – the scammers make me sick, you watching football? my team was a disappointment last night, ds’s team is looking pretty good so far today though at least . . .

    Good morning Gymbo’s friends!

    I just realized I haven’t posted since Wacky… Just been dealing with continuous health issues and real life stuff and been super stressed. If fact, I literally realized I hadn’t posted in a little bit mid-anxiety attack. I actually really enjoyed when I was popping in and posting more regularly during the summer. I just have such a hard time keeping up with everything. I was NOT meant for the Internet/email/texting/all the other stuff era!!!! Ugh… anyway.

    Miracle… I can’t tell you how much I relate to “My health journey continues as I adjust to the estrogen blockers. Would love to throw them in the trash most days, but am pushing through hoping my body adjusts.” I have been in a similar boat the last few months, and have experienced just about every side affect under the sun. It has not been fun, and I have all but given up hope that I’ll ever be without the issues and pain passed down to me through all the terrible genetics I was given (we have pretty much every cancer between both sides and I was literally ‘that kid’ who was in the hospital all the time as baby and young child being poked and prodded against my will since I was too young to understand anything but pain.) You are a TROOPER for doing that for a whole year and I am sending goods thoughts and well wishes to you that your health journey moves in a positive direction soon!!!

    Well, now that I’ve depressed myself and probably all of you, I am going to sign off–sorry! Just wanted you all to know I’m still around and thinking of you even when I don’t post! <3

    we can handle it otter
    gymbos works as a dumping ground quite well.
    clears clutter from your brain, lets ya get things off your mind so you can go about your day etc.
    does that make sense?
    and all you get back are hugs and happy thoughts
    winner winner

    September 3, 2023 @ 7:08 am

    Good Morning !

    dee.. very well said ! Gymbos is a great place to come and support each other and get through this thing called life !
    Congrats on your Bake Off success.. Noticed that you are very high up in the leaderboard ! Hope you can win the Cake Trophy !

    Otterkinz.. So sorry that you are dealing with so many health issues..Lean on your Gymbos friends for support and caring ! We are all here for you !

    Miracle.. Can’t believe it has been almost a year for you ! Hang on and hopefully the effects of the medication will be tolerable. In some ways being back in school with kids can help take your mind off the struggles… On the flip side – being overwhelmingly busy doesn’t give you the much needed rest you need !
    Nice to hear from you !

    moms.. Did watch some football yesterday ! Sorry your team didn’t win but it is so early in the season ! I am just really happy to have someone to cheer for and enjoy the games !

    Farmers Day !
    Pirate Ducky available in Sheldon’s Shack today !! Very tiny when placed in a room though.

    Hey to Sheba and April and those I missed !

    Dee, I love your description of gymbos. I think I’m going to copy it and keep it for a reminder of why this little group works together so well. We throw things out there and you all help with tips, thoughts, and encouragement. It’s quite helpful on so many levels. :)

    Otterkinz, I’m so sorry you are going through so much! Hang in there. The side effects are the worst, and getting old is no picnic. As much as I now dread another doctor’s visit, I am so thankful for the US medical system, as flawed as it is. They saved my life for sure, and I keep reminding myself that living with pain is much better than not living at all. :) There are still so many beautiful moments in my life yet to experience! My dd attended a writing conference recently where the keynote speaker encouraged them as writers to “be filled with wonder and curiosity at everything around you” and I’ve taken that as my own outlook. Sometimes I have to kick myself into remembering though! I will be keeping you in my prayers. :)

    Gaga, I read “Boy in the Striped Pyjamas” and cried throughout. Not sure I could read it again. I stumbled on some old Perry Mason books recently, and although I had seen the old tv show some, I never realized there were books. I’ve enjoyed reading through them.

    I don’t think I’ve ever played Jazz Monsters before. Weird little game. I tried the Bake Off race a few times. I like it, but am not good at it yet. It is much more fun than building snowmen or flowers.

    Sheba, I sparked a pet and got a random purple elephant. Is that what you mean by a redemption pet? I was like, “how do two unicorns make an elephant?” Not quite sure what to do with him, but thought I would just raise him like the ugly duckling and hope something nice comes out of it. :)

    Thank you for all of the codes! Got the pirate duck today from Sheldon. Thanks, gaga! I hope everyone has a great day!

    yay! got my ducky from sheldon – thanks for the heads up gaga

    dee – that’s true love :)

    miracle – it is a weird little game – it fights my instincts because they fly towards a different color than they are – your description nailed it! glad they didn’t make the number too high

    Good Morning All !

    dee… not sure how Cake gets scored… Seems like they don’t know how to add ! (LOL) My numbers on the total don’t seem to reflect the number of ingredients I have collected… Wondering if they only give out one trophy per month ? Task will be impossible for me ! but will keep playing !

    moms… Your banter with dee always makes me laugh ! It was nice that she had some items to check off your wish list ! Hope your mom is doing well ! I know my mom is probably anticipating upcoming football season too ! She always had a bowl of popcorn and a beverage… I am sure she is happy to have my Dad to enjoy the games with !

    Sheba.. Happy you are off today ! I am sure all of your students are equally as happy… Hope you have some time to catch up in WW and NEXT ! I am looking forward to all of the new week of challenges tomorrow… ( Still need the competition vegetable though ) Won’t be too much longer before the ghost returns !

    Otterkinz.. I hope you are having a good day ! Take care of yourself and stop in for chat if you are up to it !

    Miracle… I can’t believe that when you Sparked to Unicorns you were awarded an elephant !! So odd for sure ! I saw that funny looking pet walking in the chair yesterday at the Cake Off !! So unusual…
    I just started reading the Butterfly and the Violin… Takes place during WW II ..
    We’ll see.

    April.. I hope your knee is feeling better and you are able to get around without too much difficulty… I am sure Stella is a good nurse ! ( LOL )
    Have not seen Castro out walking recently but it has been pretty warm and I think his mom doesn’t take him too far in the heat. I found a dog related garden flag when I was in Amish and can’t wait to give it to her !

    Going to cookout with some friends today.. haven’t had a grilled burger in over a year and looking forward to it… and of coarse some visiting.. Going to be warm but not complaining… cold weather is right around the corner and already dreaded it.

    Hope you all enjoy the day ! Cannot believe it is kind of the official end of Summer holiday…
