Rose - Check your email.

Poptart - Sorry you are having a bad day.

Last night we ate at the Brazilian restaurant. They fill you up on chicken, sausage, ribs, flank steak, pork loin and probably some others before they get to the good steak and lamb chop. Heard them tell the other table (after they were finished) that you can refuse any meat. I did skip the ribs and pork loan. When I skipped the ribs and pork loin I said I was waiting for the good meat. Plus I did not eat all the meat they gave me. Then they played loud music and a female dancer came out and asked people to dance with her. This happened about 4 times while we were eating.

Today we are at Cozumel and it is raining. Feel sorry for all the beach people. I got off and looked at some of the shops and bought a few things. I went into some of the silver jewelry shops. I was looking at a large purple stone ring. Asked the price and they said normally $400 and then got it down to something. When he said it was tanzanite I said, no it is glass. If it was tanzanite it would be in a case and walked out.

Another shop I was looking at a dichroic ring. He quoted a price and said it was opal. I said no, it was dichroic glass and walked out. I went to Cinco de Soles they didn't have colorful rings, but found some different earrings and a plain diamond cut silver band so got them.

When I put my stuff through the scanner, the guy asked if I had candles. I said no. He went through my stuff and showed me candles. Cinco de Soles had given me a free item which I thought was just shot glasses, but they were shot glasses with a candle in them. I could not understand the security guy. I thought he was going to put me in jail. He explained how for safety reasons I can't take candles onboard. I said fine. Then he kept trying to tell me something else that I really didn't understand. I think he wanted my name to mark them and then I could pick them up at the back of the ship on the last day. I just kept telling him that they were free, I didn't know they were candles and he could keep them. He finally kept them.

Tonight we are going to try to get into Blue Planet if they have space. It is booked.

I have to pack today because tomorrow is a day full of seminars and classes and it is the last day.

Default Hi

Deb, When I was on the liberty of the seas, it had the flow rider, my son loved it. But I would not do that, lol. Ladadee (sp) is Mikes favorite place.

Rose, I hope your headaches go away soon. Sorry about your cruise, but better safe then sorry, there will be more cruises.

Poptart, sorry your having a stressful day, but at least your getting work.

Ruth, Sorry your knee is so bad, poptart is right, time for you.

Well suppose to start Monday, but I do not think it's going to be ready, should know more by tomorrow.

Today is my Grandsons birthday, he is 11 today. Wow, how times flies.

I have to get florida plates on my car by the end of oct, still do not have all the money, so I better start working really really soon.

Well that's about it, Oh my son Tom and family are coming here the week of christmas/New years, that will be great. I am hoping my son Angelo will come soon.

Love to all,
Helen

Default Aloha all

Great news Helen- Having the first Florida family Xmas. I know when we had Alexandra we were so happy and I put up all our decorations. It was so exciting to live Xmas thru her eyes. Haven't done anything since she left. Just not the same.

My son still talks about leaving. I dont say a word. If he goes he goes. I will start fixing up the house he is in little by little and if he flops wherever he goes he will have his house all done. If he doesnt come back- well I will have a house for friends who visit etc. Will get some furniture and stuff. I need to put new windows in , floors and carpet/wood. Fix cabinets in kitchen and bathroom. Paint inside and outside. Gonna take time and alot of work. Been neglected years. When my dad owned it he did not do anything and never told my dad about the flood inside that ruined the living room and master bedroom. Then his wife caught the kitchen on fire so the cabinets went.

I dont know when I will do my knee. But thinking I will do it after Bob has carotid surgery. My luck he will get another transplant call when I do it and cant drive. But he has to be breathing and alot better first.

Bob and I did one of the cruises Deb and Al are doing. We also did the ship tours in Tampa and Miami. It was pretty cool. Like I said i got out of it after 9/11.

Peach- hope you are doing ok. Same to u Poptart.

I washed clothes today and changed out to my fall/winter bedstuff & drapes in bedroom. Also cleaned the whole house. Tomm. doing all the floors.

Naturally Dr. appts. Tues. Thurs. and Fri. this week. Dialysis will be Sat. instead of Fri. so Bob can do stress test. If he passes he gets back on transplant list after carotid artery done. Wont do artery unless he passes test either.

Well these kittens are about driving me crazy- they wont stop climbing on me and across computer. Truth be told -wish I never got them. If only I knew Primer was gonna die 4 days after we got the kitten for her for company- no more pets.

I survived Friday! Work sucked but Rachel's birthday dinner was fun!
Allen had Navy today so we did it a day early. We all had dinner at Olive Garden.

I have pretty much vegetated today. Worked on Ashley's online class for her, colored my hair, watched a movie, played Cityville on Facebook and spent the rest of the day reading.

I'm just pissed I have to work tomorrow. When I am off due to a normal holiday, no phone calls, emails ect. But being off Thursday for David's "holy day" (off again this Thursday too) just put everything in a tailspin. I had 17 phone messages and 63 emails to answer, plus the phone ringing off the hook and other regular work to do. The mail ran late and I just left it on the desk...it's a stack over 6" tall to deal with.
I have to work because I have to close out the month of September, the 3rd quarter of the year and get all my sales tax and payroll taxes done and paid. I had planned to do all of that on Friday, I was all caught up and thought I had the whole day to work on it..NOT!! I should be able to just lock the door and work tomorrow with no interuptions and I'll be able to get it all done and be ready for Monday.

Charles only has 10 months until he retires, I have 4 years!!!

hugs to all!

Ruth,
hindsight is 20/20. Maybe you can find a home for the kittens. They sure are cute. Sounds like you got a lot of work done! I've was a lazy bum today.

Helen,
hope you get to go to work soon! I know you are looking forward to the family coming down for Christmas.
You haven't said much lately but are you, Mike and Arlene settled in and getting along now?

Deb,
yup I would have been very sad if it rained while I was in Cozumel. I'm a beach person! sounds like a working cruise instead of a fun cruise, but you and Al get to cruise so often I'm sure you don't mind too much.

Rose,
Praying your headache will go away soon! How is your blood pressure doing?
Hang in there!

hugs to all

Deb, I got the email and now I have to figure out how to put in an insurance claim. Bob will just have to help me! Thanks again and I am still hoping I can go in Jan!!

When are your Disney conference cruise coming? That will be fun!

Helen, Good luck with the new job.

Ruth, Little kitties are fun climbing over everything My last 2 cats were bottled fed by me and now think I am their mother! They both argue over who gets my lap.

Poptart, I'm now on BP pills, so the last time I took it, all was fine. I'm pretty sure it's my other pills that are giving me the headache. I will be talking to the doc about finding a different med.

Love to all and I'll talk to ya soon.....

Peach- hope it is indeed such an easy fix for you and medicine change is all you need. But having those strokes must scare the snot out of you. It scares me for you. Bob needs to have that right side carotid artery done. It is marked as 96-99% blocked. The surgeon needed clearance from heart dr. and lung dr. to do the surgery and we have been going all these months trying to get this and that fixed to just fix that. He will stroke out before he every gets it done if they dont say yes this week. Its crazy. They dont care -it isnt them.

Helen- hoping you are training now and getting ready to work. Wishing you all the best.

Poptart-I am hoping the kittens will wake up soon and realize they are cats. Bob is so in love with them and talks about how much fun they are to watch-I cant do that to him now or them. They do spend more time following me and disrupting my sleep. They get under my feet all the time and I step on them and almost trip many a time.

DebW- do you like doing the travel business. Perks so I am told are not as good as they were years ago. Are you working under a corp. or totally on your own? Do you have a website?

Well have to go to Tampa General for my 2nd check up with gyno. sinnce surgery. Not looking forward to the drive as we are suppose to get bad rain storms tonight into tomm. Have to take Bobs scooter and drive in rain-no fun.

Have a good week all.

Default Oh I forgot....

My friends just got in Sat. from Carnival Dream. It was also on news here. Room steward found a newborn baby in stateroom- not alive.
The "mother" was 20 years old and not from US. No word on father.
My friends said that authorties boarded ship in St. Maarten. They thought it was an eldery person needing help. Nothing was said on ship. But it was on our news that it was a baby. How sad.

Ruth,
I saw about the baby on my web news. So sad! Such a needless death. In Chattanooga is you have a baby and don't want it you can just take it to the hospital and tell them and they'll take it and find it a home. And still people do such stupid stuff.
I'm glad Bob enjoys the kittens....I love to watch them play.


Deb,
welcome home! You next trip sound like fun! Sorry I sent you a text while you were on the ship...didn't mean too.


Helen, are you working now?

Rose,
I sure hope the med change will get rid of that headache! Get well soon!

All,
2 months from today is the BIG day! We've really got everything under control and I feel good about it.
Her first shower is in a couple of weeks 10/28, then she has one every weekend for several weeks. 5 in all. She should get everything she needs.

If any of ya'll want to make a trip to GA you are welcome to come!

Welp better get ready for bed...another long day at work tomorrow.

Poptart - Don't worry about the text. It was no problem. I was in a class, but it wasn't loud so no one heard it. I get notifications for my phone games but can't play the games which I don't understand how the notifications get sent.

Rose - Hope those headaches get straightened out.

Ruth - I heard about the baby also. My report said the mother was a 20 year old from the US.

Helen - Guess you are training and starting your job.

Poptart - Sounds like a lot of fun times ahead. Would love to be able to make it to Georgia but not sure what we are doing the next 2 months except for the cruise in November.

Well before we went on the last cruise I decided I needed to see a neurologist since my eye dr said some of the side effects of the new med was neurological. Since it was eye related, I found a neuro-opthomologist. Went to her yesterday. She thinks I might get over the side effects but she ordered an MRI-MRA to make sure the symptoms I am having are not brain related. Have to get blood work done first and then the tests and then back to her. Meanwhile I go to the EP next week and who knows what he will say. (Knock on wood) the only afib I've had was on the cruise in Sep and sometimes I think that was from the ship shaking. This ship didn't shake, but it did sway some. I didn't have any alcohol on the cruises.

Default Hi

Ruth, I heard the mother is from the US, and is being held here now. Who knows, but how does a 9 month prego woman board the ship in the first place???? Hope all goes well with Bob. Well no storms like they said all day, I can tell the weather better sometimes, lol.

Poptart, I wish I could come to the shower, but of course I can not. But I am sure it will be lots of fun.

Deb, your lucky you can cruise so much.

Rose, glad to hear from you, I hope your headaches go away soon.

And no I am not training yet, lol. I hope its this weekend at the latest. Working crew is slow, lol.

My sister's grandkids are due here any minute, went to disney for 2 days, coming here for 2 days, but I always worry about Ribbon, the last time they came, when we were renting the condo, she almost bite the 2 year old. She does not like kids or anyone touching her, she has alot of issues from her past life. Not going to be fun here, lol.

Well that's about it, love to all,
Helen

Talk about a weather change! It was 83 yesterday...our high today was 62 and that was just after midnight....rain and temp dropped all day it is 44 now! Supposed to be about 50 tomorrow and then up to the 60s by the weekend. Kind of early for a cold snap.

Welp tomorrow is another one of our "holy" days off. Since Anita is out of town I get to spend my day taking mom to 2 doctors and the grocery store...that will be fun...NOT...my mom is a moaner, groaner and screamer. She has arthritis and carries on something awful. Embarrases me to death. Tomorrow we are seeing the eye doc then going to hospital for pre op tests. She has cataract surgery I think next week, then the 2nd eye a week later then knee replacement on 11/8.....I think that is 1 surgery a week for the next three weeks. She's gonna drive us nuts!

I appreciate Anita even for more for all she does for them. Dad got his driver's license taken away. So until mom can drive again we have to do everything for them.
Anita has always done a lot of running for them and taking them places. I handle there money and legal stuff.

Every now and then my brother and step brother will do a little something, but not often.

Dad is very sick too. His memory is bad and he's very feeble. His sister took him to the doctor yesterday and he has lost 5 more pounds in a week. He is down to 134. Doc says if he loses any more they will have to put him in the hospital. He's diabetic, so I got him some glucerna tonight hoping that will help. Someone told me to get him to eat 2 or 3 bananas a day too. I know he likes them so I'll take those to him too.

Anyone know anything to feed a diabetic to make them fat? He used to be 6 feet tall and weigh over 200 pounds.

At least I'm healthy and can help them.

Welp that's my life for right now!

Deb,
whoooo hoooo on going to Disney!

Ruth,
hope you and Bob are hanging in there.

Rose,
keep us posted on your health!

Helen,
can you keep Ribbon in your bedroom to keep her away from the kids? 2 year olds are wild, they don't understand how to mind yet.

hugs to all

Oh my Lord! I can't tell you how awful it was taking my mom to the doctor today. She was horrible, screaming and moaning and groaning and carrying on like a two year old. I think she has lost her mind!!!

Anyhow I wound up canceling her pre surgery stuff and the cataract surgeries, called her orthopedic doctor, they are going to try to get in for knee replacement next week instead of next month.....and when she if over that we'll do the cataracts. Doc will call me in the morning.

Anita usually handles this stuff, she much better at it than I am.

Took mom home, made a grocery list, took Dad to grocery and followed him and scooter up and down every aisle at least twice. Finally got a buggy and the list and gather up what he hadn't found. But at least he is fun and funny!

Carried everything in, put it up. Taught Dad how to make a shake in the blender with whole milk, a banana, vanilla yogurt, peanut butter and sugar free ice cream...told him to do this 2 times a day and drink the glucerna. He has got to gain some weight.

His wienie dog is so fat his belly drags the ground...I told him he should eat what he feeds Chipper.

Finally picked up Charles to go get his work van which was having new brakes put on it today...and got home at 6!!!!

I'm glad I work!!!! it's much easier!

one pooped grumpy Poptart!!! If I turn into a mean old lady just shoot me and put me out of my misery!!!

Default Aloha from too cold here in Florida!

It was 48 degrees when we left at 8am to get Bob's stress test today-I am already gonna moan about cold!!

My gyno. called with my pap results from Tues. already-she said all looks good. So still cancer free so far. That is test #2 but it still is in the back of my mind. All it takes is 1 little itty bitty cell....
As far as getting back on my hormones for these hot flashes and night sweats- not a chance. But they will try Paxil in a small dose to start as that is used for this as well a depression. Told her let me look that up and get back to her. Dont want to take more stuff.

Poptart-OMG your mom will be a bear when she does her knee. I have put that off for tears as you know because how hard a knee recovery is. Good luck there.

Peach-I know u are loving this cold... only good thing is we can get yard work done before we get slammed with the real cold stuff. I need to get to that fish pond and get my rock ordered and quick.

Helen- soon it will be holidays and family time for you. And work too.
How do you like the weaher now vs. where you came from?
They say we are in a El nina winter now so we will be colder and drier. What was last year- it was flippin cold here to us I cant imagine colder.

Deb- when do you take off on the next venture?? Hope you guys are well.

I had to go to Bealls outlet-love that store and get Bob new pants again. He started out at a 48 and 100# heavier. He now is a 38 pant and a lg. shirt vs. 3x-4x. Lost so much muscle. Anything to build him up he cant have because of dialysis restrictions.

Poptart-when my dad was loosing weight like crazy and not wanting to eat anything but sugar stuff-he was not diabetic, his dr. said get the highest in fat ice cream as that was my dads favorite. I started getting him Publix brand and he loved the taste he ate the heck out of it. He never gained much and then it was too late from the lymphnoma anyhow. I would say google something like " how to gain weight when you are diabetic" and see what comes up.

Well dialysis is tomm. so so much for a weekend here. Had to switch days as Bob had stress test today. But while he is at dialysis I am headed to another Bealls outlet to look for more pants for Bob. I am all set for winter clothes and shoes and coats. Just need smaller underwear. It is so nice to be able to shop in a "normal" store and not fat girl shops now. Just have about 25 more pounds to go and I will be really happy. Bob has to stop as he looks so skeleton now.
Well guys happy weekend!

Ruth,
good idea about the google. I'll do that.

Mom can barely walk and screams and cries all the time...I don't see how a replacement could hurt much worse...we'll find out I guess.

Doctor called me back today and the soonest they can get her in is 11/1 as he only does total replacements on Tuesdays, he wants you out of the hospital on Friday. If you do good you go home and have rehab at home, if you don't you go to a rehab hospital. They'll let us know next week if they can get her on the schedule for the 1st if not it will be the original date of 11/8.

God help us all when she has it.

So glad you pap came back good. Congrats on the weight loss.

I have gone from a 10 to a 14/16 medium to xlarge. I hate it!!!

hello and hugs to all

Default Hi

Hi all,

A quick hello, no word from deli this weekend, he must be busy trying to get it ready, should be any time now, thank god, I am so bored staying home.

Poptart, sorry your mom is being so mean to you, but I guess that's because she loves you, lol.

Rose, I hope they can figure out whats wrong and fix the problem once and for all, hugs to you.

Ruth, Hope all is going good for you and Bob, any more news on if he is still on the list?

Deb, I guess your getting ready for your next cruise.

Had some deer walk bye the house last night, they are all out over here, the cooler weather I guess is something they like.

I am loving the cooler weather.

Well that's it for now, My sister is in Tennessee visitng her grandkids, will be back tomorrow night. Oh bye the way, we all are getting along alot better now.

Love to all,
Helen
