Good morning. Yes, I am up early even for me. Cramps. I just took some Tylenol, so I will be going back to bed soon, but thought I would start the daily post. Did anyone watch the President? I must admit I didn't. Leora, I'm glad you didn't get tornados. Are you getting the rain you mentioned? Cheryl, so glad your son got that job! I'm so jealous of all you guys and your grandchildren. I miss having little ones, they are so much fun, and yes alot of work too. I'm sure you were exhausted after your day with him! Jenn, I'm so sorry you are having snow! We are supposed to have a little rain tonight, but sunny and in the 50's the rest of the week. I agree with Jenni about the spay/neuter of the dogs. I know that reduces the marking, but I'm not sure what else would help. I've never had a dog do that. My male cat started too, but once he was neutered it stopped. Meredith, I hope that you have a good celebration and enjoy that drink! Glad that you are feeling better. Kallee, What a nice Mom you are! Where do you find the energy? I think you should have Jenn come help you with the house. She's quite the decorator, ya know!! Take care of yourself, so you don't get run down.Jo, glad you were able to get on and post. I hate computer problems. Jump on whenever you can, we will be here. Jenni, I could put the parental controls on Jim's computer. I didn't even think of it to be honest. Good idea, girlfriend! TTYL
I've been up all night. I must be in manic mode, because not only am I up, I can't concentrate on much. I'll have to call my doctor and see what's up with that. I've been so stable with bipolar it almost seemed like it wasn't there, but now it's rearing it's ugly head again.
We went to a steakhouse tonight, but not the one I was telling you about. This place, called Western Skies has the best chicken fried steak in town, and I have another meal in the fridge leftover. Tomorrow we're going to is called The Wharf, is a little fancier than the place we went tonight. People in this place normally don't wear their cowboy hats and boots in The Wharf!
Today I have to run around paying bills and grocery shopping. I can't figure out which one is more fun; probably the grocery shopping. LOL
So that's my day.
Cheryl we are getting rain but not hard or alot thank goodness. I feel so bad for the people in the Dakotas we were having the floods last year but so far this year no major problems just some farm fields when the snow melted and the creeks overflowed. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Kallee you need to take a break and rest up; I know easier said than done. I am tired just reading your post.
Meredith I am glad you are feeling better. I am glad that you had a good time going out.
Jenni I am glad no tornados here too just rain and they are saying maybe snow for the weekend. And we are supposed to go to my Mom's for a BBQ. I wonder how that will go in the snow.
Jenn you sure were busy and productive. Want to come and help me out?
PP I agree that saying 12 mos is normal is crazy could they please define "normal".
Jo nice to see you anytime.
I think if they are jabbering and getting some words out that is good for a 12 month old.
Back to a fun filled 3 days of work for me! Allergies are kicking my butt...just stuffy off and on all day! My head feels full. It could be tho to that I have a inner lining infection,dunno. Ears are full and ringing real bad,so the vertigo has set in.
I hope you all have a blessed wonderful day!
Good Wednesday morning. Right now I can post. That could change any second now.
Kelly, cramps, ugh! The best part of menopause is no more of those. I still feel for you young'uns.
Well I was going to chat with the rest of you, I forgot to open a new window and if I start over I might lose what I have already typed. LOL Whoever was up all night, I am sorry.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day. We are supposed to be rainy here. My little plants in the ground will get a nice drink. Take care. Jo
Jenni- My female is spade (sp) but my male isn't. I've been worried that is to old to do that too. I don't think he's going to last much longer but who knows. I actually saw my female left her leg and mark over my male dogs spot. Thank goodness it was outside! I think as soon as it warms up things will be ok cuz the female will be outside except for an hour or two.
Kelly- Snow in spring is a normal thing here in WY! So don't feel sorry for me I choice to live here!!! LOL Hope your cramps don't bother yu anymore this week!
Leora- Sorry I've already been loaned out!!! I have to help my parents alot! I have to help my mom tomorrow actually! LOL
Meredith- I hope you start feeling better.
Well today was shots for DS. People were driving like idiots! That's one of the reasons why I don't like taking DS to his shots! Not to mention a lady that takes her son in at the same time, drives me crazy! She's more miserable then me!!! LOL I just want to tell her that too! The receptionist told me today that she can't stand her!!!
Baseball try outs are this weekend. Yippy for me! Not looking forward to that! We need to get DS some cleets ar something. I'm wondering if someone has some handme downs. Maybe we will check out some thrift stores.
Allen starts his shots soon. A nurse is suppose to be calling today to set up a time to come over and show us how to to them! And he gets his seringus today! We got the other stuff yesturday. These shots are going to cost us $300 every three months! OUch! I think I should get serious about getting a job! But all the good places aren't hiring. I could go back to McDonalds but I really don't want too but if it's the only place I guess I need to! It would be easier cuz they wouldn't have to train me! I could still do paper work, I still remember how! I'm such a loser! LOL
Well I'd better go! House is a mess and the baby will be here in about an hour!
Have a wonderful day!

It's a Wunerful Wunerful Wednesday! (my Lawrence Welk impression, remember him?)
Kelly- sorry about Aunt Flo, she just left my hours- so must have come to yours right away- what a pest!
Meridith- hang in here girl, you are such a trooper. I hope it helps that you recognize the change in modes....hope it leaves really soon. We don't have a decent place for chicken fried steak out here...now you have me obsessing on it.
Leora- I bet you are so ready for spring. At this rate- you could have snow on the ground at Easter.
Cheryl- if you hold your head over a bowl of steam, and some Vicks- would that loosen up the pressure?
Jen- in 4-H they teach you to give shots to an orange.....just think of Allen as a big ol orange.
Jo...good to see you posting.
It is a sunny spring day here- I have GS till 5 or so, catch up at work....and that takes most of my day up. DD requested pizza tonight, and I have one packet of yeast, some pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, feta, and mozerella......so dinner is just a thought away.
Do any of you still color Easter eggs?
I color eggs for the orthodox Easter Kallee. The blood red color. I don't do the fun spring colored ones anymore. I keep saying I want to try all those fancy ones, like Martha Stewart has on her website, but I never do.....
Hi Everyone. Exhausted and hurt bad today. I'm headed back to the massage and heat chair in a minute.
Kelly, I'm sorry you have cramps. I still get them and the older I get the worse they are. I have to take Ibuprofen for them. Tylenol doesn't touch it. When does Easter fall for you this year?
Meredith, I could use a touch of the manic mode. I'm willing to do anything that gives me more energy. Wow, two meals out in a week. Did you have your drink last night?? Hope things calm down for you soon.
Leora, We've barbecued in the snow before. Here, people that have gas grills use them year round. Maybe some homemade snow ice cream would go good with your meal.
Cheryl, Are you allergic to your pets? I'm allergic to the cats. The nasal spray that helped so much doesn't seem to be effective anymore. When I get my Medicare insurance I'm going to an ENT and get this taken care of.
Jo, I'll be starting my seeds this weekend in the little pots inside. It's going to be a challenge to keep Mooch and Cricket out of them. Perhaps I should just reconsider and buy plants this year. Sounds a lot easier.
Jenn, Has DH applied for Medicaid? I think that he will have enough medical expenses each month for him to be eligible. Just something to think about. Oh, by the way...You are NOT a loser. Quit listening to the negative tapes that play in your head. I know where that sh!t comes from. You are a fine lady-remember that.
Kallee, I like to color eggs. Bubba loves hard boiled eggs so we always use them up. I saw an easy way to "design" your eggs. Wrap a wide rubber band around the egg a couple of times and then put them in the dye. You could use more than one rubber band too. I always bring out the crayons when I color them too. That way I can write the names of relatives on them. If we celebrate Easter with family at all it will be with Bubba's family. I'm sure I've told you my parents do not celebrate anything.
Jenni, actually I'm Catholic, but my Dad is Albanian Orthodox so we have always celebrated both! His Easter is the 19th. It works out good for me. Connor spends the Catholic Easter with his Dad and then he gets to have the Orthodox Easter with me and my family. He doesn't miss out. It's the only holiday where everyone is satisfied except every 4 years or so when it falls on the same day.
we do several dozen each year...the kids come for the project. The last ones are always the best- everyone wants to use up all the colors on one egg- we get some crazy ones.
Jenni I am allergic to our dog...but this is the worst I have been! A gal I work with doesnt have allergies for this time either..and she has been bad to.
I should do the steam!! Dang why didnt I think of that??
