    Aimee: Do you have a Nook or Kindle or Nook App? Let me know and I can send you the trilogy!!!

    I love to read anything! I loved the Hunger Games, The Fever Series, James Patterson, Lisa Gardner. I love to try new authors also!!!

    Jen: I will see if I have that book. Thanks for the suggestion!!! How are you feeling today?

    Nan Can I come over and use the vegetable sink? You are the only person I know who has a sink that shall not be used:rotfl:

    I am not sure when Yoda's surgery is. The vet I saw yesterday said that with his heart murmur he should have an ultrasound of his heart done to see if he can do the surgery. My problem is that they did an xray of his heart yesterday and said that it looks normal. The ultrasound is $350.00 and the surgeon consult is $130.00. No matter what he needs the surgery because if he tries to pass the stones they will get stuck and he could die. So no matter what the ultrasound says we have to do the surgery. If I do the ultrasound today I will be at $850 BEFORE we even do the surgery:(

    So I will talk with the surgeon today and see what he says. Wish me luck

    I thought I had checked in yesterday but I guess I didn’t!

    Jen – I’m so sorry you’re sick again. Hope you’re feeling better today.:hug:

    Glynis – I agree you’re doing the right thing giving up the scouts. I remember when I was taking care of my parents I couldn’t commit to anything and give it the full attention it needed. Praying everything concerning the move works out.

    Marisa –Poor Yoda, I’m sending prayers.:hug:

    Nan – I know it’s going to be hard for you to let the girls go but it is for the best. You need to slow it down, my friend. Like Aimee said, you’ll still have plenty of time with them and it will be even more special.:hug: Enjoy your dinner out tonight!!!!

    Ladies, this marinade was on pinterest and it is really good:

    :faint:

    :hug: I second what Aimee said. I know I am exhausted at the end of a weekend with my DN's and they are old enough to entertain themselves.

    Speaking of which, I will be taking the little one for the weekend coming up sometime soon as her sister is going away for the weekend to her 1st big time, several states away, swim meet.

    I am hoping the strawberries will be ready at the pick-your-own farm. She loves going and we haven't been for strawberries in a few years. When I told her about going she asked if we could pick spinach too and have a salad. :rotfl: She was disappointed that spinach isn't ready until later.

    So today was a rollercoaster of a day :( I took Yoda to his appointment with the surgeon. We discussed the ultrasound and he said I didnt need it because they could use special medication to make sure it would be OK with his heart murmur.

    Then they asked if I was ready to schedule the surgery for today. I asked for a price, and he sent the nurse in with an estimate of $3000.00!!!!

    Not what I was expecting. I left crying and came home and woke up Jeff. I was hysterical. I dont have that kind of money to spend on Yoda since I am out of a job. If we dont do the surgery he will die :eek: I called the vet I used to take my cat to and asked for a quote from them. They called me back this afternoon with a price of $500.00!!! I scheduled it for Friday. I am so angry with the first place!!!!

    I have to go babysit for the girls so my mom can leave and go for dinner. Be back later!!!

    Marisa I am glad you found another vet for Yoda. Vet costs are just out of control.

    My brain is mush today I have had migranes on and off today. We are having warmer weather but the pressure is so high it is setting off my migranes.

    Nan, I have a touch of OCD. I am constantly wiping things down. J just brings home thing after thing from school. Kids are dirty. :lmao:

    So, ummmm, what do you do with the sink?


    We used that a few weeks ago! It was delish!

    I hate docs that take advantage of your emotions. :mad: Glad it is working out.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    :wave: Hi y'all!

    I am better. Not 100%, but better. I was able to see my kids today and actually pay attention. :rotfl2:

    4 weeks from tomorrow, I'm done with work. :teeth:

    Can you really?! I'd love that! I have a Kindle and Kindle app but could download the Nook app on my tablet if that's easier. I have an account there, too.

    Oh, I'm so sorry you had such a rough day :hug: Thankful you found a vet not interested in cashing in on your tough spot who will take good care of Yoda. What kind of dog is he? I love his name. Pic?

    So glad you're improving! What are your plans for the summer?

    Jen I am glad you are getting better. A couple of weeks ago I had an eye infection that took a week to clear up even with med's. I hate being layed low with stuff.

    Nancy I never knew sink were to hold drinks:confused3

    I think I am going to shoot some birds or tape my dogs mouths shut. I have a tree in my backyard that the birds love to sit in and bother my dogs. Hershey sits under that tree and whines and barks at those birds. Not sure if he wants to play with them or eat them:headache:

    Marisa – I’m so glad you were able to find another vet for Yoda. I would have been livid about the $$$ the first one was trying to rob you of.:mad:

    Janice – Sorry to hear about the migraines, hopefully you’ll have a better day today. Hug I can picture you with your gun and poor Hershey’s mouth taped up.:rotfl:

    Jen – Glad to hear you’re feeling better!!

    Trying a new recipe tonight for pork chops and pineapple fried rice!

    Out for now....

    Aimee Can you send me a private message on FB with your email so I can send you the books? I have lots of books and I would be happy to send any that you would like.

    Janice: Nan keeps bottles of flavored water lined up in her sink. So that is the extent of it. We are not allowed to turn the faucet on because Nan doesn't want water stains in it :confused3 The only person allowed to use it is Kady. So sometime we tell Kady to turn it on to watch Nan run around polishing it to make sure there are no water spots:rotfl:

    I think you need earplugs!!! LOL!!!

    Jen: I am glad to hear you are getting better! Hopefully you are all better for the weekend!!:thumbsup2 I can see you are counting down until you have the summer off!!!:rotfl:

    Kat: I was so angry with the first vet for giving me that price:mad: After Yoda has surgery tomorrow, I will write a letter to them with a copy of the bill from the second vet and let them know that their estimate was outrageous! I have other family members that go there also and I will let them know that they are switching also.

    I have no idea what is going on with my day today. Jeff stayed home last night because I woke him up at 11 am and since he was in bed at 8 am he was tired. So we ordered Chinese food for dinner after I watched Nola and Reilly. Jeff is off on Fridays and Saturdays anyway so I am not sure if he is going in today or just having a really long weekend.

    So I am going to get my laundry done and make sure my housework is all set. Have a great day everyone!!!

    Where did everyone go?

    Today I we have a lot of errands to do.

    Hopefully the lawn gets cut too. We have had lots of rain and the grass looks like no one lives here. It is almost like Jamanji out there. I expect to see the hunter come out of the bushes and second:faint:

    Marisa how is Yoda doing?

    Jen You feeling like yourself yet?


    I hope everyone has a great day.

    Hi! Janice- I don't know where anyone is but I can answer about Yoda :worried: The vet sent him home with pain meds yesterday. She had to cancel the surgery because his heart murmur is too bad to risk it. She is waiting for a consult with kitty heart Dr I think. Marisa is very upset. I think she promised to take Kady tag saling today which should take her mind off the little furball.

    Good Morning Everyone!!! Happy Cinco de Mayo!

    Yoda is doing ok. The surgery was cancelled because the surgeon called yesterday because she is afraid to risk surgery without calling a specialist to do an EKG first. His murmur is pretty bad I guess. To stop him peeing everywhere they put him on pain medication. So he is doped up until the specialist can get him in. My poor Yoda :o(

    Today we went tag saling since that is our favorite family past time. Kady had a blast and it took her mind off of Yoda. We are doing a Cinco de Mayo celebration today. I am making homemade guacamole to go with tortilla chips for a snack this afternoon. Then for dinner I am grilling chicken and steaks, squash and zucchini and baked sweet potatoes. Then for dessert I am making bread pudding. The best part is going to be the drinks!!! Mojitos and Coronas :cool1:

    Have a great day everyone!!!!

    It was so nice to wake up this morning to sunny skies and birds chirping instead of rain!!!:cool1:

    I dont have any real plans for today. I want to just pick up the house and see what Kady would like to do. I bought a file cabinet and I have alot of stuff to file, but it will take time to label new files and stuff like that so it can wait until this week during the day.

    We had such a great dinner last night. I made the guacamole and my cousin Kimmie who lives next door came over to try it and she LOVED it!!! She lived in California and had to have mexican food daily so I believe what she says. I will definately make it again since it took just a few minutes to do.

    I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!!!
