Katie - I hope everything is okay. You endure so much and I am glad Cliff is there for you and such a great guy. BTW, I hate moving! *big hug*

Just got home from Cheryl's house - she is doing soooo much better. She needs everyone's prayers and pixie dust for a speedy recovery.

Mel - it was good to talk to you today . I am so sorry I will be missing the mini-meet next weekend. I will miss you all. But I will be there in Oct for sure!

I hope the WA fires are under control quickly and the smoke and ash subsides. That is awful.

I don't do scary movies at all, either. Or gore or torture or war or sadness in general. I am a wimp!

I am going to check out the exchange thread and see what all you lovely ladies got for each other.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Since Sept 11 I have been using an electronic wheelchair around the house, and a regular wheelchair for the few times I've been out--all for doctor's appts. My friend Brandy and her boyfriend took me to the emergency room twice I was in so much pain. I had an MRI and I am taking a series of three epidurals, my next one is next Wednesday--also the last. It has lessened the pain quite a bit but I am still on some medication. After that I will be taking some in-home therapy to learn how to walk again. Assuming I can--keep your fingers crossed! It has brought home to me how inaccessible my house really is. The counters are high--I can't reach very far into cupboards or the refrigerator, etc. I had a meltdown this morning when I couldn't reach the cottage cheese. We had an aide here nights for about a week, but now it is just my Mom who came to stay with me--thank God. Friends have also helped-=-Linda, Amy and Stacerita came with meals for us last weekend and Linda is here today too--she and my Mom are grocery shopping right now. Brandy has been taking me to medical appts. along with my neighbor Art. It has been a trying time. Thank God for good friends and family. Luckily I've been able to work from home since I'm set-up to log into my computer from here. I had to miss a mini Diva trip weekend before last and am hoping to be up and around in time for the Oct. trip (keep your fingers crossed). I did cancel our trip to Hawaii (and Aulani)--there is just no way I will be up for such a big trip by the end of next month. I am shooting for next Spring now. So, that's why I haven't been around much!
Wow sorry to hear this. My mom has been going through this too. She had the epidural shots too. It helped but she still has issues and can't stay up for too long. I will keep you in my prayers for a quick recovery.

Katie, I hope your move goes ok. It sucks I know been there. I am glad all is working out though. You will be in my prayers too.

I think I would be interested in the fantasmic dessert.

I got my last item for the Halloween exchange. I need to go get shipping supplies tomorrow after my grandson's 4th Bday party

OMG Cheryl that is awful. So sorry to hear you are having all these issues. I hope you are on the road to recovery quick!!

Hope everyone else is doing well and having a good weekend. I can't believe it is already Sunday. Weekends just go WAY too fast!

I've already put out all my halloween stuff. Couldn't wait anymore lol. Plus I get to enjoy it longer

So jealous of all of you getting to go to Disney for Halloween. The last time we went was the time we met the divas in 09. I sure miss it and although I am SUPER excited to celebrate Katy's birthday there this Dec I am really wanting to go back at Halloween so we are hoping to go next year. I wasn't sure if we would be able to with football but based on THIS year it appears their last game is around the 20th of Oct and barring them making playoffs (which this year I can pretty much guarantee they won't) then we should be able to go the last week of Oct. So I am really hoping that works out!

Anywho have a great day everyone!!

Me too!! I have to changel the channe if a skeery preview comes on. It annoys the beejeebers out of the boys (which is just a nice side effect, but not the reason for the channel change )

Cheryl, good to hear you're on the mend (is it facets or SI joints??). Those injections can be a real life saver. Hoping therapy is quick and relatively painless and that you're back up and at it PDQ. Yay for good friends being able to help out!

Fellow wimp here


Crazy busy here. I've been a "single mom" this week, which is a lot harder than I expected with a 16-year-old. I still have my business and work at home, plus a few shifts at the hospital, Jesse has school, basketball on Monday and Friday, plus football Tues, Weds, Thurs and game on Sunday, plus grad activities and tailgate for football on Saturday........ and I have to cook and get groceries and get ready for my trip too Seriously, huge kudos for you all who do this every day. It's got me whipped, that's for dang sure. I needs to find me an assistant!

Andrea, enjoy the movie. The reviews were not good at all. LOL But, for this price I'm okay with that. The popcorn is what's expensive. I can't go to the movies without popcorn though.
Nothing like movie theatre popcorn. .

Hello, ladies! Happy Sunday!! This weekend flew by. But, it was fun. The baklava at the Greek Festival yesterday was delish!! I wish I knew how to make it. Today he was supposed to work overtime but that fell through. Bummer on the money factor, but happy to have him home, so we've just been chillin'.

Talk to y'all later!

Oh Cheryl, I had no idea. I mean, I knew your back was hurting, but didn't realize to what extent. I'm so sorry you've been going through so much.

I am so glad you have your Mom there to help you, as well as such good friends. If I was closer, I'd be happy to help you out! I could cook, clean and bake you something yummy. lol

Take care. Keep us updated and I hope and pray you'll be good as new for when we see you in October.

Hi, Linda!
I'm gonna miss seeing you this coming week, but I am looking forward to October for sure.

As for scary movies, I don't do gore either, but to me there is a difference between scary and gory. I love a good scary movie. But, it seems the current trend is towards gore. I don't like that. Watching someone's foot cut off doesn't scare me but it is gross! lol

Yes, check the exchange. Kelly just sent Marie a lovely Halloween package, and once the mail by date of Oct. 1st passes, you'll see even more arrivals.

I've often thought it's a good thing I'm not crafty. Those stores are huge, with so much stuff! Luckily, I don't know what most of it's for.

I always wait until Oct. 1st but I'm just itching to get all my stuff out. I have so much and it's a big job.

Just google a recipe. It's easy to make.

The movie theater here has a self serve butter machine. Oh do I go crazy!
I love scary too, gore not so much.

Well Ladies, the weekend is over... I worked some nice OT over the last couple of days so that should at least help keep my October DL trip under control.... or something! The boys are back home with me tonight (they stay with me during the school week and with my ex on weekends)... and every day at work I am reminded how lucky I am that my divorce went as smoothly as it did and that I don't have to deal with some of the situations I hear about every day.

Tomorrow is my only day off this weekend so I shall spend it grocery shopping and running other marvelous errands. Perhaps I shall begin my quest for lime green and gray shirts!

I am trying to recruit some of my friends to come with me in February but we all work in a 24/7 operation (police dispatching) so it's tough for us to get time off together. But I will work on it! The more the merrier, right?

Hoping to get better sleep than I did last night... went to be around 1130, woke up at 230, and didn't fall back asleep until 6! Grrrr. That's what working graveyard shift will do I guess.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I found one I like on allrecipes, so maybe next month I'll give it a try.

Ooooh, self serve butter could be dangerous for me!!

You're a police dispatcher? That's cool. I thought about doing that at one point. I'd like to hear about your work day sometime.
I hope your friends can make it, but if not, remember you've got built in friends with this group!
Hope you can get some rest tonight!

Trudi I always waited on my halloween stuff too but I bought a cute flag at the Disney store and a couple other trinkets and I didn't want to put them "up" so I just said to heck with it. After all who really cares. And it's fun to look at.

hello

Hi gals. Just checking in this morning
Cheryl I am sorry to hear what you are going through! You are A trooper to keep such a positive attitude. I have been suffering from pain in my shoulders for years. Finally went to dr and am doing something about it, but geesh it makes me grumpy to be in pain all the time and not get sleep. I can't imagine having my mobility effected in addition! Praying for a speedy recovery for you!


So the picture that I posted the other day was for a house that we offered to buy. Well we did get to mutual agreement and are now in inspection process. I am really excited as this is over an acre with a view and sportscourt and Rv parking and extensive decking and outdoor entertainment area. The house is big but built in 1979. This is a big stretch for. Is financially so we are really counting on the immediately repair list being short. Kif not and if we can't get seller to repair, then wevwill be out.

So wish me luck.

Hello, ladies! Monday again! But, it's not too bad because I'm spending this morning packing for DL.
Have a great day everyone.


Tracey, wishing you lots of luck on the house!
