Thank you Buffy!

Afternoon Tuscan!

Carolyn, I wish out deck extended to our pool. We dont even have our pool up and running yet, as we had a crack in the tubing that goes to the filter. Hubby needs to replace it but got to wait til pay day. We dont trust duct tape as a fix. I can imagine that thing blowing in the middle of the night. LOL

Cindy, my daughter works with a co-worker who beat breast cancer and now is diagnosed with brain cancer. I simply just cannot imagine how sad that would be.

Horrid hot and humid in Omaha too. I got bit by 3 skeeters taking the little pooch out to piddle last night. They were buzzing all over me.

Have a good Sat. girlies.

Just checking in late, great to read all the posts.
My DGS 10 is in Omaha this weekend with his parent's and his select baseball team, they are playing in a tournament there and getting to go to a Series game. He was so excited about going. My Son and DIL also flew up there to see it from TX.
Susie, do you guys have to worry about West Nile disease from mosquitos? I am not sure it is in your area of the country but it can be very serious, so I hate mosquito season. And, they love me.
Girls, the adapter is like a set top box, to have in my office, when I bought my new desktop computer, they added a component that will allow me to watch tv on my computer. I have it partially hooked up, very little direction came with it. So, I will have to go online for help or call Dell and see if they can walk me through the rest of the process. Right now I am not getting live tv or sound, just video clips, etc.
You can d/load things to an IPhone or Ipad to watch, so bet you can to a laptop as well, just don't know what or how to do it.
If I ever travel a lot like I have had to in the past, I would definitely look into an IPad, they are small and handy to travel with.
Going to sign off and go to bed, slowly getting better but boy, this bladder infection and my reaction to the antibiotics has taken a toll.
Later my dear friends....

Hi..

Glad you are getting better on that terrible bladder infection, Buffy..

Cindy: I forgot that your horses were separated... I'm sure he will love to see his
mommy..

MK: We went out to dinner..I had 3 huge shrimp and ratatouille..and a salad..This place actually makes great veggies, so that is a good thing.

Dh promised we could go to ToyStory3 tomorrow afternoon..I don't think he ever saw any of the Toy Stories, but I think he will catch on.

Nightie, night.

Tuscan, you and me both. I wish my weekends ended up better as far as meals. Yesterday I had way too much salt and not enough protein. Man, were my feet swollen when I went to bed. The heat makes it worse too.

Cindy, Ive been to KC many, many times! We try to take the kids to Worlds of Fun at least once a year. Gooooood BBQ down there.


Buffy: Yes we do have West Nile here. There were 60 confirmed cases in Nebraska last year and over 1100 positive blood tests in horses.
Sorry about the bladder infection, I get them too cause Im diabetic. I use a product called d-mannose and if you google it you can read about it. The stuff is a miracle.

Carolyn enjoy your movie!

Hi gals..

Dh woke up early and is working on my little deck before church..It got too hot yesterday, so he couldn't work after lunch..I don't want to kill him..

Susie: Yup, D-Mannose is a miracle for those darn infections..Do you take it every day as a preventative?

Sitting here with dye on my hair..I have a haircut this week and don't want any "root" comments from my hairdresser..

Gosh, our month is nearly up.. I hope I maintain 147 til the end..

My doctor gave me a potassium sparing water pill for bloating..I love it and it works really well..

Carolyn, no I mix up a spoonful into a large water bottle and sip at it all day, as soon as I get that icky feeling. Seems to abort the bad infections instantly.

Morning!
Yes Susie, Carolyn told me about the D-Mannose when I first got this infection, like you, as a diabetic, I get them too often and this time let it go too long. I am going to Vitamin shoppe today to pick up some of the D-Mannose.
My DGS's team is still winning in his tournament. They are playing this morning at 8:00 AM and if they win, they play in the championship bracket at noon. My daughter said that yesterday was very very hot, just like you said Susie.
Carolyn, nice that you can still color your own hair, I used to before I went blonde and it is so much cheaper.
Sounds like everyone is having hot and humid weather, yuck!
My DS and BIL have rented a condo in Utah for the month of Aug., sounds pretty good right now. They try to escape the heat of AZ for at least a month in the summer. We may have to go visit, :-)
Susie, what do you take for your diabetes? Are you type 2? How long since you found out you have it? I found out 2 years ago, take metformin and the byetta shot. Still learning. Need to lose at least 50 lbs, even though just 30 more would be great.

I took Metformin ER too, but my tummy could never get used to it. I had every potty in the city mapped out. :blush: When I was on the Eat Fat get Thim forum Dr. Barry was trying to help me get my fasting numbers down with diet but I eventually outstripped my ole pancreas I think. I gained a whole bunch of weight on insulin until I learned how not to eat so much! I was so afraid of hypos so I think I went the other direction. I had gestational diabetes 17 years ago. Then it went away. But 3 (?) years ago it came back. My dr says if I lose 50 pounds I might not need any meds.

I had to share from another thread!

GENTLEMEN REMEMBER IT WELL.............

In the world of romance, one single rule applies: Make the woman happy.
Do something she likes and you get points. Do something she dislikes and points
are subtracted. You don't get any points for doing something she expects.
Sorry, that's the way the game is played. Here is a non-exhaustive guide
to the point system:



SIMPLE DUTIES

You make the bed (+1)

You make the bed, but forget the decorative pillow (0)

You throw the bedspread over rumpled sheets (-1)

You go out to buy her what she wants (+5) in the rain (+8)

But return with Beer (-5)

You check out a suspicious noise at night (+1)

You check out a suspicious noise, and it is nothing (0)

You check out a suspicious noise and it is something (+5)

You pummel it with an iron rod (+10)

It's her pet (-20)



SOCIAL ENGAGEMENTS

You stay by her side the entire party (0)

You stay by her side for a while, then leave to chat with an old school
friend
(-2)

Named Tina (-10)

Tina is a dancer (-20)

Tina has silicone implants (-80)

HER BIRTHDAY

You take her out to dinner (+2)

You take her out to dinner and it's not a sports bar (+3)

Okay, it's a sports bar (-2)

And it's all-you-can-eat night (-3)

It's a sports bar, it's all-you-can-eat night, and your face is painted
the
colours of your favourite team (-10)



A NIGHT OUT

You take her to a movie (+1)

You take her to a movie she likes (+3)

You take her to a movie you hate (+6)

You take her to a movie you like (-2)

It's called 'Death Cop' (-3)

You lied and said it was a foreign film about orphans (-15)



YOUR PHYSIQUE

You develop a noticeable potbelly (-15)

You develop a noticeable potbelly and exercise to get rid of it (+10)

You develop a noticeable potbelly and resort to baggy jeans and baggy
Hawaiian
shirts (-30)

You say, "It doesn't matter, you have one too." (-8000)



THE BIG QUESTION

She asks, "Do I look fat?" (-5) (Yes, you lose points no matter what)

You hesitate in responding (-10)

You reply, "Where?" (-35)

Any other response (-20)



COMMUNICATION

When she wants to talk about a problem, you listen, displaying what
looks like
a concerned expression (0)

You listen, for over 30 minutes (+50)

You listen for more than 30 minutes without looking at the TV (+500)

She realizes this is because you have fallen asleep (-4000)

Good morning friends! First off, MK, thanks for starting my day with that! I've been lmao since I read it. I really needed that. I'm forwarding it to everyone I know and copying it in large print for the fridge - so dh won't miss it!!

Got my sister moved in and all seems to be going ok. I'm taking today to just relax and listen to the rain, read a book and catch up on stuff. Haven't caught up with anything here on the board, so I'll do that too. Just wanted to check in and say hi before I started anything. bbl

Hi gals..

Working like crazy on Rebecca's bridal shower for tonight..My friend Carrie is great at decorating, so we changed the room around and made it look very lovely with plants from all over the church.. I hope my punch is okay..it's lemonade and pineapple juice and 7-up..We are having a pro make a 2 layer cake..I guess I will have a piece..

Susie: My Type II friend got much better control with insulin..Of course, she doesn't eat as well as you do, but it works much better than meds.

MK: Sooooooo true...every word of it.

Cindy: Yup, you don't want your babies to get that West Nile stuff..

I saw Toy Story 3 with my friend yesterday..Dh got out of taking me..Okay, it wasn't sad until the very end....I kept thinking..Where is the sad part??? However, I thought it was mean of that mom to make Andy clean out his room totally, but it was part of the story, I guess. Bonnie was adorable..

Morning!

DS17 really liked Wash U - and so did I!
Amazing school!

Start weight from the beginning of this thread was 122.6.
Weight this morning - 121.2!
So I lost - yay!!

Kind of disappointing, though - I was 118.4 last week!
Guess it's something to strive for again!

Did I mention someone tried to break in to our house while we were gone?!

Morning pretty people. Just had coffee on the porch with hubby. Did the dishes and bathed the dog, Buster. He is actually my daughters dog but her new apartment wont allow pets. He is part Shitzu and poodle, just the cutest little fellow. Now Im wore out, time to sit a wee bit.

Do you gals weigh in on the same days? Have a good day everyone!

Morning.
Oh, that's scary MK, a lot of our neighbors are home a lot, retired, etc., so that helps keep our neighborhood a little safer, but most go to bed early.
Busy with laundry, office today.
My weight stays about the same.
I will be off the computer the next few days, lots going on. See you all next week, hope I remember to look for a new thread.

Hi gals..

I was 147 this morning..Well, it was a "down" day, so I'll take it..

MK: Wow..Washington U is a great school in St. Louis, right? That would be a super school to go to and not terribly far from home either.
Congrats on your loss...and last week was a great week..Must be water weight.

Buffy: We will miss you..Glad you are still the same..That is still great..
Have funnnnn..

Susie: We have monthly challenges sort of..And we weigh the last day of the month to see if we have gained or lost that month. It's just good to keep us on track.

AKK...So scarey with peeps breaking in..I can't imagine how spooky that was..Did you lose anything???

Sandy: Hi.

Cindy: Hi, too...

Oh..Brett thought his phone interview went well yesterday..He will hear in a week, so keep your candles burning..
