Hi Kathy

We have a category 11 so I'm not sure if we have a split bath or not. Personally I am NOT a fan of the split bath. Much rather have one slightly larger bathroom than the split.

And yes, we made it to the M&M store (girls went twice and me once). It is really cool!

Hi Jeff,
we loved the single bath better than the split. It si a lot larger so your not so crowded and with just 2 of us we cans till easily get dressed for dinner and such.


Glad you made it to the M&M store I have seen many photos of it and on the food network too.


Kathy

HI everyone.

Glad you are home safe and sound Kathy. I hope your mom is feeling better soon. And I'm with you about the no sleep. There is no way I can survive without sleep.

Jeff - Glad you had fun in NYC. And yes, the M&M store is very cool. You were very close to my office. If you walk up 48th street, the entrance to my office was half way up the block towards 6th.

I'm off to see The View now! DH and I will both be there in green shirts. Look for me! Oh yeah, that's right. You don't know what I look like. Hmm, here's a quick description - I'm the good looking one!!

Woo-hoo another thread!

Good Morning All! Jeff sounds like you had a terrific trip!

Kathy, I hope you slept well last night--in your own bed.

Suppose to be close to 70 here today! Back to reality tomorrow, but we'll take it!

Have a great day everyone!

We're back from The View. If anyone ever goes - wear comfortable shoes. They make you stand for hours, literally. The guests today were Gary Sinise (very small), Jay Mohr (just what he looks like on TV) and Dr. Drew Pinsky from Celebrity Rehab. Of course as a free gift we get a copy of Dr. Pinsky's. It's stupid. Even the guy handing it out said we didn't get good gifts.

Otherwise Whoopi and Joy were funny. Sherry is exactly what she looks like on TV and Elisabeth is a lot less annoying in person. They filmed Joy in some shots for Thursday's show. My DH was directly behind her. So everyone DVR Thursday's show. When they show Joy in the audience, the man behind her is DH and I am to the right of DH (looking at the screen - which of course that's what you'll be doing ). Sorry, it's been a long day. We're both in green and remember, I'm the good looking one!!

Only bummer was that they didn't sign autographs after the show. Not quite sure why but they did need to film the Joy bit and then the bit with the poodles for Thursday's show as well. And let me tell you, those poodles were useless. They didn't do anything they were supposed to do. I don't know how many they end up using but they started with 3 of them. They kept being removed because they were misbehaving. Can't wait to see what they do with them on the show on Thursday.

Off to dance class (for DD - not me). Hope everyone is having a good day.

Morning Allison & Dawn,
we are cool but have nice sunshine too.

Good and bad news here today.
Good is really good. My moms new meds must bestarting to work. She had no night attacks for 2 nights and only 2 minor ones during the day. That is wonderful if you knew what she has been going through.

Bad news well first the frig went out. I didnt go to it all day so didnt know it.
water all over inside and lots of spoiled food and food I threw out just in case. Dont want to take chances. I just stocked up meat int he freezer part. a couple of packages were still solid in the back fo the feezer, everything else had to be thrown out
ALMOST $1100.00 TO FIX IT New ones are another 5 to 6 hundred dollars. Should have the part in 2 or 3 days.
so I had to buy and ice chest and block ice to save what I could, not much

Next bad thing was today Pixie fell backwards out of the RV when she was jumping into the RV after a potty break. She caught the inside of her back leg and made 2 nasty gashes. There is still fur and skin on the edge of the step So I had to clean her up, then put Neosporin on it heavily. Vets say thats the only med that if the dog licks it, it wont hurt them. Then wrap gauze around it to keep her from licking it or biting at the hanging skin and meat of her leg. Then I had to cut the toe off a small sock and slide over the bandage to help keep it in one place.
I need to watch really hard for infection now. She is hurting but now sleeping.

what a morning it has been

I am so ready for a cruise!!!

Hope your all doing well.

Allison I thought I was the only good looking one around here. Nice to know there are 2 of us now



Off to try and destress for a bit,
I'll check back later,

Kathy

Hey Kathy

Glad you mother is doing better!!!!! I'm sure that is at least some stress off of you. Sorry to hear about the frige and puppy... When it rains, it pours. Hope her leg heals and she doesn't have any problems.

Jeff, sounds like you had a great time in NY. I'm sure you bought all your nannahead buddies a treat at the M&M store....just let us know if we all need to send you our mailing addresses!!!!!

Allison, I have always wondered what it would be like to see a show being taped. Other then the hours of waiting, sounds like it was fun.

Dawn!!!!!! Glad to see you jumping in right off the bat on the new thread!!!!! Now I won't have to sick Kathy on you!!!

Good evening everyone!

Thought I'd pop in and see what was happening.

Kathy, sorry to hear about your misfortunes.

Hope Pixie's leg heals up ok.

Some friends of our had to replace the fridge in their RV last year....NOT CHEAP!!

All the snow around here is almost melted. Suppose to be around 55-60 degrees for the next 3-4 days...that will feel good.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Morning everyone,
well I am pooped today. I didnt want Pixie to lick or bite at your gashes or pull off the dressing that have medicine on them, so I slept on the couch with her beside me.
That was a real trick, of course sleep is not what i DID MOST OF THE NIGHT.

3 times she woke up and tried to get at the sore so its good I was there. I don't want her to get it infected. I think she is enjoying all the extra pampering But then Minnie gets jealous, so I have to pamper 2 dogs

We do have some sunshine this morning headed for 50 if we are lucky
Dawn, I hope Stephanie gets better soon.

well I am off to take the girls for a potty break and will be back later. I think I need to throw away more food that the ice chest isnt keeping cold enough


Kathy

Hey Guys,

It is sunny here today, but still a little cool. At least the rain is gone.

Kathy, hope you get some rest. I am sure you are tired after your long weekend and lack of sleep last night.

Dawn, how in the world is it warmer in MI than NC?????????? That makes no sense at all...

Howdy do all,
well i cooked off all the meat that thawed out before it spoiled. way too much for us to eat so for lunch both dogs got a burger and a cube steak. At dinner tonight they each got a sirloin steak too. They sure have it rough dont they
Tomorrow will be the same I'm sure.

They did come and fix the frig late today but cant use it for a few hours. It will take that long for it to get cold the first time.

I was just starting to doze off when they came to fix it. They were suppose to call first so I could prepare the area for them but they didnt. Oh well, glad its fixed.


Catch you guys tomorrow.

we got sun today too, 60 degrees
Now its rain as far as they can predict


Kathy
