LOL KT! Gotta love it!

Ang: They grow up too fast. Enjoy as much of it as you can! (big sigh) Feelsl like that for mine still, and they are all grown up. DGS will be 3 this summer. Before we know it, he'll be headed to school!

Shower, then heading out to close my room and finish up any last minute things...then

SUMMER!!!

...and back to laying stones! LOL

Schools Out for Summer!! I was going to paste all the lyrics to the Alice Cooper song, but it's kind of violent:

"School's out for summer
School's out forever
School's been blown to pieces"

Nuh uh

Kitty when I was about 16-17 Alice Cooper was huge, I had all of his albums..there was one song that my mama would not let me play in the house " Dead Babies" man I rebelled against her but she won in the end, DUH! Now I can understand why. I still love old Alice to this day.

LOL! Yep, got more stones to haul! Getting there though! Slowly, but surely! Broke it to DH that I still want a load of smaller stuff for the last side! I want to be able to set chairs there. He didn't say too much! LOL

Got my deco. grasses to replace the ones that didn't come back last year. Now to get the large stone in place (tomorrow hopefully!) and finish that corner. Went to take pic.s and thought I had some nice ones, then realized that the memory card wasn't in! Ahhhh!!! Will try to do some tomorrow!

Just over a half hour to go before the odometer rolls for me! The big 5-0!

Hard to believe it is really here!

A "sweeter" side of Alice Cooper! Love this one:

This song has hit me a different way than it was probably meant....

I'm dedicating this to myself...Think of it as singing it to yourself...reason to change who I used to be....ME!!! I am really doing this for me! Happy Birthday ME!!!


I've always been so about others..but have to be about myself too.

Keep yer hands off me treasure chest Piratewoman!

Uploading pic.s of the rocks I've been working on the past ___ days!

DH's wicker lounge arrived today. Tractor trailer to deliver it! Strange! The pallet it was attached to weighed more than the chair! Crazy! DH napped in it before it was even out of the front yard! He doesn't want it on the porch I planned to put it on. He says he will never go out there, and it will be unused if there like the other chairs there! WT? Can't win! Now, have to figure out how to fit it in on the other porch.

Went through a time today feeling weepy. I blame it mostly on the hormone thing; not the birthday thing. Just got that frustrated sad cloud over me. Getting over it now though.

Had a "discussion" with DH about cake. He just doesn't get it. Thinks I should be okay if I just eat a small piece once a day for several days.

To start... a before pic.:



See the heart rock I found? This is what usually drives DH crazy when I get into the rocks! LOL



Close up: My beachy corner! Sadly the chair won't be ready for some time...backordered now!



The corner from farther back:



Part of the back side:



Other part of the back side:

And the guys dont get it, especially when they dont struggle with their weight, you will feel better soon, look how awesome you look? At 50 woman that is something to be proud of!!!

Thanks for the kind words Amber. Weird, but it wasn't the birthday thing that made me so funky...felt the same thing milder the day before and a couple other times. Also getting cold sweats. It has to be hormones going haywire. Haven't had any real issues with perimen-men. to this point, so I think this is it. Going to call the doc. and schedule an appt. to see what they think. Have had the forgetfulness the past 9 months or so though! LOL Will I need something, or will it all take care of itself soon? IDK I don't want to end up a hormone crazed wreck! LOL

DH woke me up before 7 this morning with a call to remind me about taking out the garbage!!! Ughhh!!! If I could have slapped him through the phone!

I don't think the 50 thing has really hit yet. I'll let you all know when I go Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! or maybe you'll hear it where you are! LOL

Thanks Christine!
Amber, thanks again, and your welcome any time! I love the lobster too! Grabbed him up at Lowes! Going there today with my friend. We'll see what else we will bring home! LOL We usually end up with what we have called moving gardens! Filled to the brim!

Don't ya love the cooler! Now, I just have to get youngest son to make it for me. He is pretty talented in the building things area He built one similar to this (we think it turned out better! Bigger, better!)

Have a nice day everyone!

Well hormones will mess you up every time, ughggh!!!

Yes I do think you should slap your hubby for calling to remind you of garbage, hello??? Why doesnt he take it out??? LOL With two boys in the house now, I refuse to take out trash and shovel snow!!! LOL

Have fun at Lowes, they always have cool home decor thingies, I want a new umbrella for the patio, I never like it up cause I like the sun, but Tony and Bobby hate the sun pounding on them, I might check Lowes, I really want a whole new table, but figure we will wait til we get a new house then decide, my stuff is getting all rusty looking, and its that green metal, sort of distressed so I debated spray painting but not sure that a flat green will look so nice?

They make all kinds of fancy spray paints now you might want to look around at them. One of those might look cute for now. I would wait too for the new house. You may want something different when you get there.

I need new umbrella stands for mine. The wind always knocks them over where the pool is. One gust and bam! heavy stand and all. Going to make my own so it will hold them...another kitty project! LOL DH is probably shaking his head now and doesn't even know why!

He used to take it out in the evening, but critters get into it fast here. I usually take it out in the morning before going to work. He usually gathers it up for me so it is ready. We "forgot" to do that last night! LOL We...yep...we...LOL

Kitty, your corner looks great! Can't wait to see pics with the new chair.

Birthdays are hard for me too. I get very emotional and mad at the world. Don't remind me I am getting older!

Hey Kitty: Been reading your journaling and found it quite addicting! I haven't read the entire thing yet but you got me with your love of Bruce! I'm in suburbs of Chicago now but grew up in NJ and vacationed many a year in Asbury Park and I'm a huge Springstein fan! The pictures of your pool are gorgeous, beautiful country. Since you're a "citygirl" thought maybe you were close to NJ or even NY. I can relate to you in age, height and weight and feel similarly to you in regards to my body naked...I've got a love/hate situation going on!!!

I didn't notice my 30th birthday so much, I was busy being pregnant, that fixed my attention well on something else!!!

I'm not sure on peri, I think I am having some memory issues, I hope it is that and not just aging!!! I have to keep calendaring and writing myself notes, ugh!!!

Beautiful rock work!

Thanks girls!

The memory thing is probably the worst thing so far! Got better for a bit, now...IDK Cold sweats today too. Not a big deal ...yet...worry it will get worse though.

How old are you KT? You're not old enough to be starting men. are you?

Welcome Lauren! A fellow Boss fan!!! WooHoo! Been worrying about Clarence lately! Love that man! Made me fall in love with sax music!

Nope, not near NJ or NY other end of PA. About 20-30 min.s out of Pittsburgh...depending on whose driving! The city is a nickname for the area I'm from...not a "real" city! LOL Too small! My dream is to visit Asbury Park and the Stone Pony this summer.

Sadly, the chair is on backorder! Won't be in till the 28th they said! Ughh!!!

Went shopping today with my friend for another friend's bridal shower/bachelorette party gifts. She made me buy some clothes. She even insisted on buying me some! Got cute capris and a cute top; a skirt and a sleeveless jacket to wear with it. Oh, yes, we did get the presents we went for! LOL Had a fun time

OK, feel like I'm cheating on Dr. A...I am I guess...Going to do a time of Raw eating to see if that will shake up the weight loss. Not sure what will happen at first since last time I started, I was eating crap before going raw. One problem with it is the frequent RR visits. All the fiber I guess. Doing as I did last time I tried it...90% raw to 10% not. Lost weight with that before, but had to quit due to end of summer and going back to work...limited RR usage again! That was 2 summers ago. If it works, will stick with it for a little while, if not, back to VLC for me and hope that I start losing again after a rest/break. Stocked up on fresh fruit and veggies. We'll see what happens!

Have a great Thur. girls!

Praying for Clarence. Still a favorite of mine from The Boss!

Hi Kitty,

I'm 46. My mom was deep into the hot flashes at 47, so I know I am probably not far behind at this point! I'm hoping for the best, though!

I have a good system going with calendaring and I keep a running list of things I need to do in between emails at work so I don't forget anything. It is so necessary these days, I can't keep 10 things in my head I have to get done anymore, as soon as I read the next email, the previous one is gone!

Keep the videos coming, I am enjoying them!

I heard Mind Games/John Lennon today. Sigh. It made me sad again.

Heh, I just remembered something cool...Springsteen wrote Blinded by the Light...love the Manfred Mann Earth Band version. I've got no theme to tie this to, I'm just on a 70s bender on youtube tonight:



Oh my gosh, I've got to get to bed!!!!

In a 70s mood myself after the shopping yesterday. The clothes we saw obviously had a 70s theme! I thought the 80s were to be in now? or did I miss that one? That's ok, I like what I'm seeing out there

Love Blinded.... I love their version and Bruce's!

Another good one he wrote: Because the Night

He gave it to Patti Smith, I like her version, but I am partial to him singing it
