Deb any name you pick for March we will follow you, our fearless leader We use to make wine all the time and plan on starting again once we move home. It was a lot of fun and always had lots of wine. Cheryl the pork was wonderful and the kids loved it too. I had a feeling you would like that one. GB she is a mean mean lady no matter what name you call her Well almost that time for me off to work, did hire 3 staff yesterday if they work out only need 2 more aid and one cook. Would like to leave a staffed kitchen when I leave but oh well!! Two days till the weekend and 3rd day on plan. We can do this

I lost my post this morning too.

We are supposed to get our first storm today. Late storm season my eye!!

Dr called Mom. It is something to do with her hip. She couldn't understand him cuz of his laryngitis. He finally laughed and said keep appt. and can have more pain meds if she needs them. Quess we find out next week. She is a little nauseated from pain meds but feels better

Doing well on my diet not great downward movement but some. And beats going up.

Hey Pat saw a couple small tornados in N CA.

Cuda- not much of a talker? That's ok. We talk enough for 10 people

Jo have a good work day. Sounds like you are on a hiring frenzy

Deb lets just keep the title the same for now. Did you make it to class?

Got taxes done. Getting money back

Weather is TERRIBLE.. I'm ready to move.
Doctors, Doctors & more Doctors..
On the plus side I lost like 4lbs this week?!?!?!?! Always a silver lining.
Had greek salad for lunch.. Was yummy.
That's seriously all I got

So this couple that looked at our lake house loves it...the guy is a miner so he and the L/B had lots to talk about

They want the place for May 1st..want long term..will take care of the place..you know how it goes

our camper will be there for us to pick up and when we do our car or truck will be there in the drive way so its perfect for checking up on them

rent will be cash !!! and he doesn't mind the L/B going and doing a few things that he wants to do to the place..and is willing to help

hmmmmmm
did I convince myself???

Well they have pin pointed where the pain is coming from but can't yet say why it’s happening just yet .. So.. Hi Ho, Hi Ho.. A Testing I shall go.

I'm putting laxatives in my salads..
KIDDING!.. I think I just haven't had much of an appetite these days so not eating enough.

You sound very torn on if you should rent out your place or not.. Is this the lake house you head off to every week?

Cuda I hope they get the why figured out soon and treated.

Deb what do you think of the renter? I'm glad we are out of the rental business

Jo I saw 2 weather men blown over while reporting on the storm in NS. Sure you want to move back there

Tornado north and east of us. So far so good here.

I haven't met them..L/B went out and met them..they want to bring me deposit and meet me here in the city...... I think Monday

having a rental gives me the extra money to do what I want so its really not bad...heck I have 105 suites here so im IN the business for sure

I would not have this rental but I own it so its totally money in my pocket..i don't pay anything for my condo..i get all utilities included..along with
I-phone/net and tv......

money talks

Karen, take some time to breath, when does tax season end in the US? Same as ours the end of April. Another thing I need to get at. Deb that looks good and looks like a few meals for you. What s it about this rotel? Only rent the LH out if your comfy with it, I can tell you love spending time there. Although the money is likely nice. Cuda hope they figure out where your pain is coming from soon. Nothing worse then not knowing. Take care Cheryl I am going wind and all and I cant wait it can blow me over. Down there I will just put the fires on and snuggle up in front of the fireplace and enjoy the snow days, which is something I haven't had in 22 years. We go to work and school no matter what here unless the power is out. But that was a late storm of NS . Hope mom is feeling better today I know you worry about her so much. Pat day 4 is even a better start, don't you overdue it at yoga but I know you enjoy it so much. Misty hope you got some rest and hope you Hubby is doing better. Nothing worse that worrying about people we love. Take care of you, sometime when we are looking after our families we forget that its important that we look after ourselves. Everyone have a awesome Friday to be followed by a even better weekend!

rainy day today so get chores done, went to laundrymat to wash all Rocco's bedding, going to bring them down to the dog shelter.

Deb wow I'm going to make that, thinking of a lot I could make with it. Love the idea to put fried eggs on top. Extra cash is always a good thing, plus the house always your still.

Cheryl glad to hear they at least found out it's your moms hip and they can work from there, so much harder when they don't know. Smoked ribs beef or pork ribs.

Jo tks DHs ear look so good, back to Boston Tuesday for the final check up I hope. I'm not going this time, I have to work and it's only a check-up. DS is going, gives them me time.

Cudabear hope you get on the mend soon now they found out what it is. Tomorrow going to try and find that Kale salad mix I love kale

Karen I know how busy you are this time of year, glad to got to pop in.

Morning!

CJ~Saw Tornado damage in Mo on the news this AM! Hope they weren't in your area? Yeah, heard about the Tornado in Sacramento area. Saw that video of the weather men getting Blown! Sounds like your Mom might have some osteoarthritis in her hip? Hope it's not worse than that...from her last fall? Do U brown the ribs first before U crock them?

Cuda~Yay...-4#. I think I missed your post on where your pain is/coming from?

Deb~Yes, U convinced yourself to rent LH out! I likey egg on top of my chili/Mex stew. Glad U had a Great Run!

GJo~ Yay...Day 4! Can just see U in NS in front of a fire smiling.

Misty~Rainy day & washing/giving away Rocco's things must have given U the Blues.

Karen~

Yoga class was a good one yesterday. Today is nail & hair day. Couldn't get the appts rt. next to each other. Have a 2hr wait in between. Dangit. Guess I'll do some shopping in between. Could use a new Paddle outfit.
Scale hasn't budged. Thinking I need to up the exercise a bit. Need to go walking/biking/paddling more.

Life sucks, DS just got rushed to the hospital and they think he had a mild stroke, got to wait to see it they are going to life flight him to a better hospital in Conn. Other son is on his way. I want to just go but they say wait to see if we are flying out. The mild stroke is bad for him because he has cardomyopathy

Misty.. I am so very sorry to hear about your DH's setback and possible stroke. I am glad your son is coming it will be good to have someone to lean on. I am definitely praying for you and your family as you face this latest challenge. (((hugs)))

Deb- The rotel beef looks yummy. I am a big fan of rotel myself. But, I made the mistake of getting the extra hot with the habanero's. Set myself on fire in a few places....

I will be looking for the new thread... this title is fine by me.

My allergies are getting to me especially with all the windy days we are having. But, that's okay cuz I am ready for the warm weather... bring it on.
