Vicki, that sounded like an awful lot of work for you and your mom. I'm glad you found a nice couple to help out.

Sorry about locking your keys in the car. I have AAA and they cover that for me. I'm assuming you don't have AAA.

Ha ha Tony, pretty sneaky of you! Are you going to tape your concert or at least maybe the song you both wrote? That would be so cool to see and hear! Amadora is so darling! Tell Emmy that she a Sal need to have a bunch of kids because they will all be adorable!

Vicki, so sorry about locking the keys in the car and the trouble with the wall paper removal. Glad you found a good solution with the couple putting up the 1/4 inch dry wall and doing the back splash too.

Marilee, we can just picture you in your comfortable chair and the remote tonight after work. It is going to be tough to get you to post here. lol

The kids are leaving Joplin area at 6am today and will have two long days of driving. I think they should be here in New Hampshire by around 8 tomorrow night. Can't wait!

Egg salad and pork skins again today for lunch. Looking forward to 11 days off in a row!! We are shut down next week and I took off the 7th and 8th in case the kids could stay a little longer. They can't but I will enjoy the time off anyway.

Have a great day Blitzers

Good morning all,

Vicki, how frustrating about the keys!! Maybe your insurance company will cover the cost??

Marilee, are you loving the new TV?

Tony, The concert sounds like a lot of fun!! I agree with Abi, you should record it!

Abi, Wow....Joplin to New Hampshire is a loooong drive! How long have your kids lived there? It's been 30 years since I left, I'm sure it's changed A LOT!! 11 days off, what a nice vacation you'll have.....and much deserved!

Oh my guys, TGIF....I am ready for a weekend. No big plans here, just rest and relaxation....which I'm ready for, I am a tired lil' pup!

Hope everyone is well

We dropped AAA a couple of years ago. I will submit to insurance.

Weigh in and measure day: I haven't measured yet but will later and post results. But, drum roll . . . .. 243.4 = down 17 lbs Woot, Woot.

I have stuff to do before it rains, will post inches lost later.

Vicki, great photos! That sure was alot of work but looks so nice. Nice porch to sit and admire your handi work. Good going on the 17 pounds!!

Tony, down .8 and back in the 220's is so good! The concert will be terrific! Lucky crowd!

Tammy the kids have lived there (actually Carl Junction) since around 2005 or 2006. They just texted us and are finally in Connecticut. Should be here in around 2 hours.

Marilee, don't forget to come up for air! lol

Talk to you all in the morning!

Good morning Blitzers!

The kids arrived last night safe and sound and they had all grown so much. Hayden's voice had changed since we saw him last and he is almost as tall as his oldest sister.

Plans will be church at 8 so DD can see her godmother and show off the kids. Tony, not sure if it will be the Backside or just back home for bacon and eggs. DH has a very sore joint problem in his foot - probably gout so he may not want to do the extra walking.

May cook out this afternoon. Probably chicken legs if we do.

Have a great day gang!

Abi, have fun.

Tammy, we have R&R today after all of the work yesterday.

Tony, we have had rain on and off for several days now. Yesterday no rain until we were done and I had just finished sprinkling the Preen weed preventer on top of the mulch and was to wet it down. The rain did it for us. I hope the concert went well.

Marilee must be glued to the tv LOL.

I was down 14.5 inches overall. Not too bad.

Hey everyone!

Abi, so glad the kids made it safe and sound, I can only imagine how much fun you're having with everyone!!

Vicki, that looked like A LOT of work in your yard, lovely house!!

Tony, The concert sounds like a great success and a lot of fun.....and the ribeyes sound wonderful!!

All is good here, we've had a nice weekend, but it's gone by fast! We hiked 4 miles yesterday and are getting ready to head out for an evening hike of at least 2 miles....eating on plan and just taking it all easy! Back to work tomorrow!

i'm sure abi is busy with her family and since i am the only other east-coaster here, i will kick off the morning today...

i was supposed to be in nashville this week, but everyone in my office will be away so i am going the week of the 14th instead...as a result, this week will not be as crazy as most of my weeks...plus, a lot of the fires i have been putting out have stayed out and the concert is behind us...whew!

having lunch with one of my tenants today...she's an awesome person and has been battling cancer...she is doing very well right now...

hope my fellow blitzers have a great monday!

Very busy with family but having alot of laughs. One of the grandkids asked to see MiMi's "book" last night. When they were little DD would call with funny things they had said and I would say I was going to put them in "the book". We were all hysterical listening to her read them.

Today the girls/ladies are going on our traditional shopping trip. 2 grandaughters, DD, sister and niece will meet in Brattleboro and go to the little shops on Main Street. I am not a shopper so only do this once a year. It will be alot of fun.

Tony, lovely picture of Sarah! What a terrific opportunity. Glad you are having a calmer week. We can only run around at a frantic pace for just so long and then have to take a deep breath and relax a little. I will be doing this Monday and Tuesday when the kids are gone and I am still off work.

We had taco casserole last night and I put mine on lettuce for a salad. Grand son is going to cook the chicken legs tonight. I will teach him how to make the secret sauce. Have a great day gang!

Good morning!

You all are right - I can't pull myself away from the television. I love it!

Tony and Vicki, congratulations on the weight loss. I'm so proud of you.

Tony, I bet the concert was fabulous. you really worked hard on it and I know it paid off.

Abi, I bet you are having fun with everyone. Summer is great for vacations and getting together.

Hi Tammy! You are quite the hicker. I really admire that.

It is going to be hot this week - 112 by Wednesday.

TTFN

Good morning all,

Happy Monday!!

Tony, what a beautiful girl Sarah is, and what a wonderful gift from her friend and their family! Enjoy your lunch, I hope your tenants battle continues to go in her favor.

Abi, what a great idea of "The Book" I wish I'd thought of something like that when my kids were little.....I will definitely have to keep it mind for the grandkids one day!

Marilee, 112.... I don't miss that!! We have actually talked about one day moving back to NORTHERN Az....I could do Sedona or Flagstaff easily....but no more of the Phoenix or Tucson heat for me. My son is actually moving to Williams next month, he's pursuing a FABULOUS opportunity to work in the church of a very dear pastor friend of ours, and this gentleman will mentor him....we're all very excited, and DD and her hubby want to move up there so DD can attend NAU, she's decided she wants to go into family counseling....As much as I do love being here on the coast I would not be opposed to Northern AZ if it meant being near my kids. That's the beautiful thing about property management, they have apartment communities everywhere that need to be managed!

Well kids, it's a hectic Monday and I'm still shorthanded so I'm working alone today....it should be busy! Have a great day, I'll check in later.

it has been raining non-stop for about 4 hours now. You could say that we have lake front property. Towards the back of our lot, we have the lowest area on the block so all of the run off comes to our yard. Of course we didn't know that when we bough the place in February. We are absolutely sick of the rain. This past winter it was the cold and snow, now it is the rain and humidity. Where can we move to get away from all of this?

Yesterday I felt kind of like a failure. I rested all day meaning that I didn't officially exercise. I only logged in 3500 steps and my goal is 10,000. Food was ok, I did have some watermelon at a pot luck but other than that, everything was on plan.

I did a DVD this a.m. but it isn't all marching or walking in place. Although I burned calories with movement, steps aren't counted. I got my 10,000 in by doing the elliptical for half an hour.

Now, to go build an ark.

abi, that all sounds like so much fun...i am so happy that you are enjoying your family this week!...let us know how the shopping trip went :-)

tammy, i would follow my kids too...don't blame you at all...williams is a cute little town...we stayed in a campground there on one of our cross-country rv trips and ate at a cool little restaurant that was a converted gas station...might have been a bbq joint...wonder if it's still there...i think they re-created an old west gunfight in the street there too...

vicki, i'm so sorry you're getting all that rain instead of marilee...haha...seriously, that sucks...watermelon is 99% water and if you crave something sweet, it is better than most of the alternatives...you're doing FANTASTIC girl!

marilee, i bet that tv is blowing your mind over there - it's like having a movie theatre in your living room, isn't it?...it's in the 90s here this week, so you have us beat by only 20 degrees or so...luckily, it is still dropping to the low 60s at night so it's good sleeping weather...

nice day...helping emmy move tomorrow with dw and my two oldest boys...sal has been off every tuesday for the last 6 months EXCEPT tomorrow when we are moving his stuff!...haha...

Oh Vicki, so sorry about all the rain! Hope it stops and drains off your lawn quickly.

Tammy, sometimes I am tempted to move to Missouri to be close to kids but we were gone from the rest of the family for 30 years and I would really miss them and they would miss us. Son in law could change jobs and they would pick up a move and I really would not want to do that again. It is a tough choice for sure.

Tony, lucky Sal. lol Really, I bet he would rather be helping with the move. The shopping trip was great. 7 ladies! Lots of trying on of clothes. Chaco sandles bought by one, a dress by another , alot of cheap jewelry, bracelets and rings, Vermont tee shirts, nail polish and lunch out. We had such fun. Today we drive up to Walpole for lunch at my sister's house. We will walk through her flower and vegetable gardens and all the sweet stencilling she has done recently in different rooms.

Marilee, hoping you get some cooling rain but not as much as Vicki is having.

Have a great day Blitzers!
