Yo y'all!! Notta lotta goin' on around here today. Another somewhat chilly/windy day...so again, no lounging out back.
Put in enough napping/resting time for us all to share sizeable enough chunks.
Got some reading in. It was just health/diet research...not fun stuff. A load of dishes are whirling and clean clothes are ready to be transferred into the dryer.
I suppose I'll fold & put away the laundries when they're done, (Loty's fave task!! ) and prep things for tomorrow, like vites, coffee, iced T.
Gotta run over to let Max in & visit still.

Whatcha all been up to?

that son of a gun TOM! Ruined your morning like that! I really dislike that guy a lot! I forgot to tell you the Dr. offered to do another procedure on me since TOM is a little longer still that normal. I declined. Its not that bad and nothing like it was, no reason to have surgery just to shave a couple days off every month. I told her if it got worse we would talk How was the rest of your day? Get a super nap in again? I got an hour. Just couldn't take it anymore! Actually the girls took one too, they were pooped from the sleep overs.

Never did go to Kohls this weekend. MIL got a better coupon but it starts next Sat....so I will wait and go then!



Oh Max sounds like a fun cat! I am not usually such a fan of felines but when they have cool personalities like that I like them. Its those snooty kind that just ignore you or run and hide that I don't care for!


ML and I have out final tomorrow. We both have seriously busy days at work too. Poor guy, we were trying to study and its like his brain overloaded and just refused to take anymore on right now! He went to bed instead. No sense trying to study when you know inside your head the alert alarms are going off! Abort mission.....head to bed!


After our naps the girls and I busted out the house. I was scrubbing the bathroom and jeeze, I just don't know how much longer we can put that project off! I should snap some pics for you. Its a mess! I suppose some sort of repairs could be done but why?! When I know we need to just gut the thing! I am afraid of mold behind the wall though. I think the soap holder thingy is cracked a bit from the wall and water is probably just seeping in there Uhg....I will look into that later in the week.



There are 3 more houses that would be protential G & A ones. CT and I are going to go look on Wed. Told her to submit the counter offer tomorrow, I am not waiting any longer. The if they take it they take it, if they counter I will have already had time to look at those other properties and will either accept the counter or decline and bid on one of these others. Either way the ball has to get going! When have you ever known me to wait this long on something! Actually these 3 that were listed over the weekend look good. Just hope they aren't sold by Wed! You gotta move on these things!


Soooo....the fake lashes are a bust hey??? Well, glad to know that because they do look like it could be addicting! I am loving that elf eyeshadow primer and the gel eyeliner! A lot!!! I can never get any sort of liner to stay on my lower lid ever and that gel sticks right where you put it! I tried to take a pic...LOL my dang phone stinks for pics ya know though.
Oh and I forgot I had taken a pic of ML and my fortunes from when we went out to dinner last week. Was Thursday I think, anyway before we had plans to go to the casino. Looks like the fortune came true!!!! Of coarse I took the pic because ML was going nuts over the fortunes because of the little between the sheet game Well now we know it was NOT about that but the casino!

IMG_20130411_191302.jpg

IMG_20130418_130307.jpg

Ok I better get to bed!!! Well might look over notes one last time for the night first and then go!


TTYL!

Just a quick breeze thru!!

I had so many things planned to knock out today...but darnit to TOM, I feel like full on Muleck-Bleck!! Annnd Craaaaanky!! Ewwww!! The dogs were acting up on the back porch, as I was vac'ing the dining area and I scolded them ((LOUDLY))...over the vac noise and pounded on the glass slider ((HARD)) & pointed at them sternly...like some sorta out of control redneck heathen, all perfectly timed for my neighbor fellow to witness. Because of the height of our fence...he wouldn't have been able to see the dogs...just me looking out his direction pounding/pointing and hollaring. Add to it, I'm still in my robe & lookin' totally tore up. Could've just died!! But, on the flip side...it gave me quite a laugh to think of what was goin' thru the Dudes head, tryin' to interpret Mrs. Crazy.

Alright...the party must go on!! Check ya back soon!!

Hi!! Hi!! Hi!!

Gotta be swift here this morning, as I'm tryyyying to pull myself together, so as to be able to steal the car when Hunky comes home for lunches. I've GOT to run out & grab some grocery goods, AND, Pinterest seems to think I need a special eyeliner. If I remember right, it's name is Luminous? It's by L'oreal, in any case. It looks like a big fatty/stubby pencil. So, we'll see how that goes. Also, I wanted to see if I could locate the gel ELF pencil. I wanna copy the Diva's look!!

What are you chicks up to today?!

Well....let me tell ya how glad I am to be home!!! So much drama at work yesterday I ended up working today too! Well part of that was to make up hours from yesterday. A had a field trip to the nature center. I was actually trying to get out of it but she reminded me that I missed her field trip last year because her sister broke her arm Hold a grudge much?? LOL I miss one stinking trip because I am at the surgeon with the other kid and she doesn't let me forget! Anyway it was supposed to be a full day trip and was cut down to half a day just to do the inside activities because of flooding...so we were told! I went in my work clothes including high heels....they changed the plans again and yeah I got to spend 2.5 hrs tromping around in the woods in heels! Yeah me!!!! My feet HURT today!!!!! Then we had our final exam....don't think either of us did very well! I left one completely blank! Oh well! Oh and yup the reno began today!


I worked today and then ran to the grocery store and got stuff for dinner. I NEED to get my diet back under control! Get a plan...any plan ....and stick to it! The last 2 weeks have been convenience food like 5 days a week! Unacceptable!

I am off tomorrow but might be looking at those houses, I really just want a day to take a girlkickinit style nap!!! Maybe next week! Actually what I would like is to NOT have to go look at houses, I want the oldie to just hurry up and counter so we can work out a deal!



Thanks for the kind words! Made this Diva's day! My hair was just pulled up is all its not cut that short, it was already pajama time!

Oh I wish I caught you before you went to the store though! The elf is not a pencil its in a little pot. Like this....oops its called cream not gel.....SORRY!!!



Its amazing though! That pic was after wearing it all day! My pencil liners never ever last like that!!!

We had a little family of raccoons living in one of the apartment chimneys Isn't he cute??? The animal control guy brought one baby up to the office to show him to us! They are about 3 weeks old and could hardly walk straight, he kept tipping over and making the cutest purring noises!

Here are the other pics I wanted to post. She kept starring at me and anytime I looked her way she would thump her tail so hard I love that dog! Don't ya just want to smoosh on her fat neck rolls?

She and Jack are snoozing on one couch and the big boy and I are sharing one. Too bad I have to go to bed now! I *may* have to work tomorrow, boss lady told me she is sick. She will text me in the morning. I sure hope not! Seems like forever since I have had a normal work week. Everything else is starting to really suffer for it too!


OK, nighty night ladies! See you tomorrow!

Goodmorning Girlzz!! It's Humpty Day!!

I've been a chore-girl all morning, as I have to bail out this afternoon for the Anaconda follow up appt., and didn't wanna return to *Thrash-ville*.
I ran over to let Maxipoo out & clean up his messes. If his mother knew what he'd been up to, while staying in overnight....
But I won't tell!!

Loty!! Your pic.'s of your baby are just totally precious!! Yes, I would also wanna squeeze that little love bug to pieces!!
Oh my gosh, and that baby raccoon!! Love him!!

What a visual on the high heeled trek thru the wilderness!! OH NO!! I bet your feet were killlllling you!! That's awful!! Enduring that should fully make up for any injustice there was in the past, as far as A is concerned now, right?! Oh yeah, and y'all refer to going to the powder as a *field trip to the nature center*.... ....what a way to fancy-up the whole experience!!

I wanna hang here & chat with you about the make up & the diet plan and more. But, alas...if I don't get my hustle on, right now...I will have to leave outta here lookin' like a tore up drag queen!!

Naty, where ya at & what's new in the world of the 26 year old?! Have you any new wisdoms to impart on us -oldies-?!

Over & out!!

Well looked at 5 more today. One was fantastic!!!! Really great! One catch....investors can't bid for 3 more weeks boo!

Sent my final counter offer in, fairly confident it won't be accepted. So back to the drawing board! Oh well!


So I am in my pj's already....yeah its a good night! Love being home in comfy clothes!


I am going to look at menu planning and make up a grocery list tonight after the kids go to bed and figure out this diet!

Yawwwwwwnnnnn!! I just woke up from a 2.5 hour power nap...and I'm exhausted!! Why does it work out like that sometimes. Plenty of time was invested into it...and yet I feel like I've been awake for a forts night or two!! Well, mostly I suppose I'm feelin' whiney cuss I slept straight thru -coffee hour-.

Soooo, my day went better than I'd planned, in that Hunky was able to go be-bop with me to the Anaconda appt. & then onto Costco. Appt. went real well. The Dr. folk is going to submit the claim to my insurance & we'll look to move forward with treatment. The neato news is that I might be able to get the bulk of the procedure done for free. They're performing a "study" within the next few weeks, and it's possible that I could be involved. The details are totally not clear at this point, but the Doc said that it could be that they'd wanna have him treat the largest Anaconda, that is the biggest baddest issue, and leave the other, much tinier sibling/wanna-ba
Anacondas...to see how things heal/progress, without the whole job being done, all at once. In any case, it sounds like they're very specific about how it goes down & it's something I will certainly consider, if I'm offered the opportunity. Otherwise...within a couple weeks, I'll have the final figures from my insurance as to the bling-bling costs I'm looking at. It's roughly a $5,000 procedure. I'd be looking at an easy $1,500...and possibly as much as $2,200.
As for Costco news...I found the Nutiva Coconut Oil-Organic-cold pressed, (that I was planning to order from A), for $21.99...for 72oz!! What?! GOT SOME!!

Gonna head back up & see whatcha been a buzz about. Surely I'm near the smileage limit here, already!! BRB!!

Oh what a drag on the counter not being likely to be accepted on the oldies diggs!! What is he thinking?! House hunting is exhausting...when it's added on top of an already very full life!! I think those waiting periods for the investors are lame. It oughtta be...you got the dough? You want it? Highest bidder. Go for it!! Seriously!!

What a non-stop worker bee you've been!! <---Loteage!! Do you have to go in tomorrow too? YAY for you gettin' jammied & being able to getcher lounge on!!
I wanna hear whatcha come up with for your chow plan!!

Hey hey!!!! Free or part free would be super!!!! Any idea on when you would find out if your going to get to be a part of the study? Well you are just a coveted person these days in the medical field!


My gosh...medical bills are just so astronomical That is such a lot of money! I sure do hope that you get to partake in the freebie! Even with insurance the co-pays are just nuts!


WOW what a find today at costco!!!!! We don't have one of those here, that is just amazing! Wonder if you can order things from them??? I guess the shipping would tack on a bunch though. Such a great find though! Any other finds?


Well not sure about working tomorrow. I don't wanna! I just want the day off to do stuff around here!!!



OK....off to google to research

We just returned from a visit with Max, to let him in for the night & have a little play time.
Cleaned up the kitch, running the dw, and programmed the java <---WANT IT NOW!!

Ummm, we were told that I may hear something back within a couple of weeks...around the same time they hear back from my insurance company, regarding how much they will cover. So we'll see how it all shakes out!! Yeah, that kinda tripped me out when the Doc. started to suggest this *study* idea!! Two health -studies- offered up within the same month of each other. OK!! Of course that 1st little one didn't involve any sort of cash gift...other than the researcher was dedicating $5 towards Juvenile Diabetes Research, for every person who participated. If I had to cash the whole Anaconda procedure out...without the help of insurance...it would cost nearly $5,000!! That's even with it being fully medically necessary.

The Costco score is even more of a score than I'd previously posted!! I just re-looked...and that container is 78oz!! The drag though...I just searched on their site...and they don't seem to offer their oil on there.

The other find today was a couple of train cars for Hunky , and inspired by that Hippy Juicer fellow you posted the other day...I picked up a real coconut, in order to attempt to make the *Coconut-Almond Yogurt*...which can be used in place of sour cream. I wanna make those tacos that he made...but really wanted to follow it like he suggested, and I heard him mention that faux sourcream...so I pulled up the vid on it. Now I'm on the hunt for the probiotic that he's using...without shopping it out at the health food store here in town...that IRRITATED me last.
I'm also having a tricky time with locating quality macadamia nuts. Ahhhh...always searching for something!!

I sure hope you get the day off tomorrow!! I know you need some down time & home time. You've been on the Goooooo!! It seems for so long now!!

Looks like this crew is gonna head to wonder-land. ZzzZzzzZZzzz

YAY~Goodmorning!! Happy Thurzzday!!

It's supposed to be 73*'s today!! Yah!! Stoked!! I'm hoping this fam will make it out to the pup park this afternoon, once the kidz Papa comes back home for the day!!

Today is all about choring, organizing, handling some bizz...in the way of phone calls/paperwork and meal makin's. Speakin' of the meals...
Rob is doing very well with his latest chow changes, and already lookin' trimmer for it!! That is keeping him highly motivated to stick with the changes he's made, which have thankfully included dropping the diet soda. He's shifted to iced T, or iced water w/lime & stevia. He's saying that he -feels- better too & has noticed an increase in his energy & overall well being. So happy about that!!

May trip out to the market at some point. I wanna pick up some special foodie for Max, for his indoor eats, maybe a fishing pole style kitty toy, annnnd return some peanut butter that we think may be tainted some how!! Between the 2 of us, we've chowed on it 3 times so far, and each time have experienced full on Senna effect, to the extreme!! Horrible!!

Okay...gonna get this party started!! Gotta track down *Purty*!!

Whatcha all up to today?!

Oh what great news on the Hunk and his success! So is he fully raw or is he mostly raw. And what are you feeding him and you?? I have been doing research every night on it. I find it to be difficult finding out info for some reason. What are you eating for protein? The whole thing is just nothing I ever considered before so its hard for me to wrap my head around. If you have any info to enlighten me I am ready for it!

I agree, when I am not on the diet coke I feel better as well. It is creeping back after the last couple of months though I actually notice a lot of joint aches and stiffness when I drink too much.

So did you and the fams make it to the park? Soooo jealous of your weather! We were rainy most of the day again and I think maybe got up to 55.


Mr. Loty and I both had the day off today. No fun was to be had though He was in worker bee mood! So we worked <<< I was less than thrilled let me tell you. But its nice to have some things done. To be honest I think I was just being a poor sport about missing nap time I have to work tomorrow as well so no nap then either. Its so sad when your chronically tired and base your life on when your next nap will come! Funny thing I never understood why I don't like to go to bed at night but love to take naps....makes no sense. Then we went out for dinner and both took a kid to their activity for the evening. Now ML is out on man date and I am playing online.

I have made a decision to talk to SIL and tell her I just no longer want to hear about her hubby problems. I have just never told any of them that they can't come to me with problems. Because of my dislike of him I can no longer be objective and feel like I am probably stirring the pot more than helping so I am asking to no longer be involved! She wants us to come over on Sat, she lives the next town over and they are having a maple syrup festival this weekend. I think I will say my piece and then see how we can move forward from there. I have been dreading having to see DB and was going to cancel but then thought...ya know I can't avoid him forever and its not fair to the kids to not let them have these little family outings. Besides he will be busy most of the day so its not like we are all hanging out together! I am going to suck it up and confront him and try to keep my cool. I am most afraid of that! Of not being able to keep my cool and not just go off on him! Or shall we say *flip the switch* I really don't like him and its mutual from his side as well. So we need to figure out how to get through holidays and what not. I actually had started writing a letter to him awhile ago. I took my computer to gymnastics tonight to work on it but forgot it was in my emails and not saved on the computer so I couldn't get to it...no wifi there. So know what i did??? I started writing a story! LOL maybe if I ever finish it and get published and make it big you can say...I knew her when....

What a blurr today seems like!! It turned out to be 75*'s today!! We took the kids on a field trip to Petco...to buy their cousin Max some foodie, and a feather/fishing rod toy, (that he LOVES!! ), and then onto the pup-park. There were more dogs & their peeps than we'd evvvver seen there before!! The kids had lots of fun, although towards the end Kiki started to get a bit barky at all of them. I'm guessing she was maybe just getting tired/overwhelmed. I met an oldie gal pal down there & she put the word out...she's there nearly everyday around 3-3:30pm, if I wanna pal around. This reminds me...remember my bestie of one afternoon...who was nearly widowed, as his wife was in Hospice & taken off all eats at that point? We were gonna meet for play dates!! He never called. He never responded to my email. It's possible that he went on down to Arizona, after his wife passed...but I dunno...my other thought is maybe he thought I was *reverse cougaring* on him or something!! That's what CT said when I told her about meeting him that day. She said "Oh you're already looking for Rob's replacement?" Yeah...the 8yr. age diff. between Rob & I hasn't been enough...so I'm tracking an 80+ yr. old...for good measure.

So you & ML knocked out a boat load of choring? And without a nap?! HORRIBLE!! Well, it certainly came at a high price...having to miss out on nap time & clean on your day off...no doubt!! I do see a verrrry bright side though...like come tomorrow, when again you're powering thru the day, nap-free , you'll be able to think about the condition of the Loty Mansion that you'll be returning to and be sooooo pleased & feel so relaxed about it being taken care of. That will be YAY!!

Boy, I feel for you on the stress & tension with the SIL & DB sitch. It seems like (their) dramas are really spilling over & effecting their circle in such a heavy/negative way. They need to get it together!! I hope that however you decide you want to handle this, that you're received well and they each hear your heart in this.
The Maple Festivities sound like a YUMMY Blast!! I hope things are ironed out smooth enough for you guys to all go & have an enjoyable time!!

Tom has been hanging out for the last couple days, as you know. He left entirely last night...all throughout the day...so much so that I wore white capris...and then he came back this eve. No...there's no white pant stories...but dang it...I've been tossed back onto the couch w/that stupid heating pad, again!! GIMME' A BREAK!!

Due to the limitation of EMO-smiles....I'll BRB!!

To begin this note...let me just say...there are a few repentable things I might be willing to do, for a diet coke right now. It's been awhile!! It's been over a month...as a matter of fact!!
So, 1 month & 1 day...and still entertaining Tom...and down 16.5lb.'s!!
I don't have anything fancy to share, recipe wise, at this point. I should...as I have a ton of borrowed library books on the subject of raw eats and green shakes!! Trust me...when I discover something worth knowing about...you're gonna know about it!!
So...I'll share the current example of the chow:
B: Avocado w/salt-maybe some Almonds-Coffee w/C-Oil
OR
B: 2-3 Celery Stalks & 1-2 Tbsp. Adams Peanut Butter

L: Large Loaded salad, w/greens, olives, all things veggie that sound good & lately I've been using the oil mix that the marinated artichoke hearts come out of. YUMMMM!!

D: I snack on some nuts (for the protein factor) and sometimes will have a Vile G.

Usually by 6/7pm...I'm feeling pretty hungry...as we have our largest meal at lunch....at 10:30-11:00, but I just deal. That's when I'll pop the nuts or vile G, and take my night time vites, along with plenty of water. That helps.

Rob is having nearly the same...except that I'm giving him oatmeal for breakfast right now. I will shift that over, once he's finished thru this container & make him a healthier hot breakfast cereal, using higher quality grains/nuts. He can still have the grains and fruits that the raw diet allows, beings he's not especially sensitive to the natural sugars they produce. Thank God, cause that opens up so many more options for him!!
Also, because I haven't gotten fancy enough to put on gourmet goodness...he's still getting to have a bit of lunch meat in his salads...and he's been using up the cream based dressings we have. Enjoy it buddy...those dressings are almost gone!!
Really, that's as cheffy as it's been around here. So, not cheffy!!
*There's a lot of protein in pumpkin seeds!! And for just a small amount too. Trouble is...without the seeds being salted/roasted...and had raw instead....BLECK!! They're yuck!!

Yes, I will tell all my cougar frenz about my buddy Loty, the Worlds Best Sellin' Author, of ALLLL Time!! If I get to score a hand signed copy, I'll show 'em all!! Is this gonna be a Peter Pan Romance Novel, by chance?!

Goodmorning Peeps!! Happy Friday!!

Listening to one of our fave pastors, James McDonald, on the radio & fixin' to hop into the rain box. Played with Max this morning, before lettin' him out to enjoy the sunshine. It's gonna be 75+*'s today!!
I've made up a list of to-dooz, that I'll start in on after the gettin' ready is done.
The tentative plan is to pack the kids back down to the park this afternoon. I think the Hunk is wanting to consider jaunting around to the 2nd hand stores too, once we drop the kids off, back at the house. He's hopeful that he'll happen upon train goodies, and sometimes he does.

Naty, your little pink chair is adorable!! You have so many different talents!! Creative person you are!! I bet your little chair would make a lovely barbie chair!! Or, for the cell phone users...maybe a *cell-seat*?
Boy I don't know about the higher carbage/water weight gain question. I just don't have that figured out. Wouldn't that be something though, if us human folk had digital print outs of what was what & what we could expect from what we consumed?! Sign me up!!

Loty, you napless-wonder!! How ya hangin' in there?! I hope your work time goes by quickly for you today!!

TGIF!!!!


You crack me up! Repent you heathen over your impure diet coke thoughts! How boring are we that the thing we covet is diet soda!? Losers with a capital *L*

OH wait.....some of us covet old guys apparently! That is super funny! Oh CT!! So no word from him hey? Do you know for sure his wife has passed? How old is your new BFF lady?

Well my goodness! That is a pretty dull menu compared to what you were fixin! The simplicity of it is probably just so freeing though. You don't really have to *think* about meals or spend 2 hrs of prep to a 20 min meal. Seems a little peaceful is the only word I can think of. Do you find you feel that way or are you going bonkers? Can't argue the results though! I bet as soon as TOM leaves you alone your going to hit 20lbs down in no time flat! You MUST be in oneder~land by now hey???



you know me too well!!! Thats just about what I started to write! Well not exactly sure how the whole thing went down to be honest. How do you go from trying to write a letter to clear up a feud to *oh I think I will write a novel* Then i was like ....well I don't remember enough or writing class to write a grown up novel so its a YA one. Thought well what story do I know best...mine! Only with a twist to make it more YA.


Well we are starting back in with walking tonight. After dinner we are going for a walk since it got into the 60's today there is NO more excuses to be had!

How cute! Did you make the pattern yourself? That stuff always reminds me of a Grandma's house and the kleenex boxes! So cute!

Just a quick run thru here, for now. I'm yucked out. I'd thought that maybe our peanut butter was tainted, as we thought it was making us *senna-style* sick...but no, it turns out that we may have been chowing SALMONILLA Cucumbers over the last few days, in our salads!! Eighteen states have been infected/recalled so far. I've been sicker than a dog most the afternoon.

I'll check back in with y'all in a bit.
