CHIT CHAT THREAD Sept 9, 2012 ( CLOSED )
5 years ago
| Hot!

Well, I don't understand this new system. I will just start another chit chat thread with a link to the old one. If this is wrong, let me know Donna. http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=47&pst=1684501 Well I enjoyed the day trip yesterday when I wasn't worrying about home and furkids. My furkids have never been left alone for more than 5 hours in their life. Even when Ray was in the hospital I would drive home for a short visit and make sure all had food and were safe. Bill came and let the dogs out for potty break but it isn't the same and I still worried. I am tired, I went to Church this morning and fixed a breakfast/lunch, took a short break and then took the dog for a walk. And then, I got my hatchet out and started chopping up new shoots of bamboo and pulling up as much of the runners as I could from underground. I think I told you for the rest of my life, this will need to be done. I found out already that roundup doesn't kill it, just the grass around it. If I had my old tractor, I would tie the runner to the tracter and pull longer pieces up. I can only get a foot at the most any one time. Everyone is okay. I still have to keep an eye on Mouse. He poops in the litter box in the garage but still will squat and pee in different places in the basement. He stops if I yell and then goes outside. Even though he has used the litter box at least one time that I know of, he isn't totally house broke. We will keep working on it. Sugar

You're doing great, Sugar!  The link works -- takes us back to the last Chit Chat thread.

 

This new format does take a little time to adjust to.  I'll admit that I'm not at all fond of it.  But, I do understand that the change was necessary.  I know there are many who really like the new format.  I guess I'm just an old lady who doesn't like changes!

Keep an eye on him Sugar, as that sounds like what males will do if they have those struvite crystals or an infection with it or both. I had a cat years ago with it, and he would take a few steps and strain to pee. he usually had some blood in it too.

5 years ago

I don't like change either! When something works half way decent, no need to change.

I don't think he has a UTI. I have had cats in the past with problems, and it is easy to spot. He is healthy as a horse, he is just a little careless about where he pees. He went outside on his own this morning to pee. I hope he gets it totally soon!

Well I have another busy day. First I will take the dog for our walk. As soon as Girl Dog wakes up and goes potty we will be leaving. Then some housework, then picking up small limbs and branches which fell over the last wind storm Friday, then mowing and then double checking the bamboo in places where I can't mow. Too wet.

Well, I have been half way trying to lose 5 pounds for months. That's ridiculous. I will lose a couple of that five and then pig out again. I'm hoping by mentioning it to someone I will have more will power. But I am lucky that I haven't gained any above that 5 pounds, so that is good.

Well time to wake Girl Dog up. She has slept long enough!

Have a good day,
Sugar

Keep me on track!

Sandi, You post the cutest things.
Sugar, forget the diet, get weighed with your clothes and shoes off, without the pound from a cup of coffee. Take a water pill too. Of course the next day the weight will be back.

All kidding aside, you can lose 5 lbs or more in one week if you cut out the carbs for that week. Flour and sugar have to go, and the weight will come off. I don't recommend following this diet any longer than that. I did it for 10 months adding a few carbs back as I went along, and dropped 80 lbs. I also walked....

5 years ago

Thanks. Sugar taught me how! Sugar this is for you & Mouse. I just got back 7421.giffrom the dentist had tooth pulled so going to chill for awhile   .

5 years ago

Sandi you do have the cutest little things! I'm sorry about the tooth. Go chill for awhile!

Donna I lost 5 pounds last winter by just being a little more sensible, you know a smaller portion here and there, a little less butter on the toast. Nothing drastic. I figured 5 pounds this summer would be a piece of cake!!! Well I guess it is a piece of cake with ice cream and choc syrup and a cherry pie with ice cream or the weekly visit to the China Buffet, which has great food and very reasonable for seniors. And french fries! Oh well, maybe I can lose another 5 pounds this winter coming. I just came in from working outside. Mowing and chopping down a few more new sprouts of bamboo and of course washing the mower. I picked up lots of small limbs too. You would think those 5 pounds would just melt off even with the ice cream!

Good afternoon, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Just reading, doing some work with the Maine Coon rescue group I volunteer with {we just approved an adopter for a special needs cat!}, and computer stuff.

One thing I do like about this new format is that all the posts are there for you to read while you're posting. No more taking notes for me! lol Otherwise, I'm not much of one for change either.

Sugar, I understand where you're coming from about losing weight. I'm surprised that you don't lose weight with all the work you do pulling bamboo, other yard work, etc and all the walking that you do. Have you had your thyroid checked? I'm very slowly losing {about 2 pounds a month} though I wish it was faster. It's hard for me to lose weight since I can't do vigorous exercise. I eat sensible for the most part. I'm glad you enjoyed your day trip. Sounds like you're keeping yourself very busy. You did explain about having to pull bamboo up for the rest of your life. So, is it easier to pull in this form than when it was all grown in? Or is it just as much work? I'm sorry that Mouse is not using the litterbox regularly. It must be frustrating for you but I can tell you love the little guy.

Sandi, love the pictures you post, they're all so cute.

Donna, hi. Hope you're doing well.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

bed_bug.gifThanks you should like this one! I can't seem to lose weight either! I think for every pound I lose I gain back 2. Stripes & I love everyone.

5 years ago

You all can give me some of the weight you need to lose. I could gain a few. lol.
Im trying to get used to this new format as well. Im like the rest of you, i dont like change and dont adjust so quickly to it.

5 years ago

Sandi, you make me laugh! I promise not to let the bedbugs bite! Hey, how are you feeling after your trip to the dentist?

Darla I think it is the food I eat! I have been eating more this summer because of working! And I haven't been eating too smart. I might get a handle on it soon. At least I am still the five pounds lighter than last year. I will let you know how it goes. Heather you can have the five extra I have. How do I send it?

Good morning, everyone. Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. I have an appointment tomorrow with my pain management doctor to get my pain pump refilled and my trigger point injections. I'm also a little bummed. I went to the pool this morning to discover the water was too cold for my comfort so I didn't get to do my little exercises. This week will be a quiet one as usual with my reading and doing stuff on the computer {Care2, e-mails , jigsaw puzzles, etc}.

Sandi, I'm sorry that you're still hurting from having your tooth pulled. Love your bedbugs picture and the little girl with the kitten and doll is so cute.

Sugar, I don't alwasy watch what I eat either so I guess that is why my weight loss is so slow. Still, I don't eat very much I just don't eat "right" all the time. It's good that you're still lighter than last year.

Heather, you can have some of my weight as well.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Today was my turn at the dentist.  Just a cleaning and routine checkup for me.  Oh, and a slight adjustment to my lower partial.  $127!!  That was the only painful part of the appointment!  LOL

Welcome to the group Harry. I hope that you will be able to move soon.

Welcome Harry! I think we all feel that we know you. I hope you enjoy the group as much as we do. We always watch for Teresamarie's post and start worry if we don't hear from her. Again, Welcome!

Teresamarie, can we call you Teri also? I hope you find the perfect house and enjoy living in it forever! I know I was very lucky 35 years ago when I found my forever home. You have to send pics when you find it.

Well, last night I had a horrible nightmare. I dreamed I was carrying Tom (21 years old) over a creek bridge first then we came to a long bridge which was under repair and you could only cross on one side of it. After we got across we found we might not have time to get back across. It was going to be shut down completely! And we saw Pudge there and and Tom and Pudge touched noses. I also saw my sister, deceased 10 years now. It is scary, what if it is the Rainbow Bridge and Tom and I are going to go across together?

Take care everyone, have a wonderful day.

OH my goodness. I need gas in my car and it is $4 a gallon! I don't ever remember seeing it that expensive. I think I have to quit going to the park to walk. I can't leave the house unless I drive because the road where I live is so dangerous. There isn't that much traffic, but the uphill, blind curve and the narrow space before a big drop off on both sides just up from my driveway entrance isn't good for a long life. It's no wonder I see so many cars alongside the road out of gas. I don't live in a rich neighborhood and this economy really hurts.

I got a gift card for Petco which just moved into our neighborhood, well 6 miles away. Their prices are a little steep. Petsmart is a little better but it and Complete Petmart is 15 miles away and I was hoping Petco was going to be the cheapest, but no luck. But with the price of gas I will probably go there anyway.

We had another beautiful day. A little warmer this afternoon, but not bad. Chewy and I really enjoyed our walk this morning. I gathered a few hickory nuts for the few squirrels I have left. At least I hope I have some left. The hawks and owls have just about wiped them all out. And then of course Shirley Snake wiped out all my toads. I keep looking for her, but no sign of her.

bye all,

Sugar

Good afternoon, everyone. Hope y'all are doing well and things are going great. Things are good here. The furkids are all happy and healthy. I went to my pain management doctor this morning and got my pain pump refilled and had trigger point injections. I'm hoping the pool will be somewhat warm tomorrow when I try to go. I have an appointment at 4:00 this afternoon to get a mammogram done. Just my annual, routine mammogram as I'm having no problems and don't expect any issues to turn up. The only thing off this morning at my appointment was that my blood pressuure was a little low at 90/61 but I'm not worried as I typically have low BP.

Welcome Harry and hi Teresamarie! Hope y'all find the purrfect home as a forever home. Sounds like the move north will be very good for y'all. I hope all goes well. Do send us pictures of your house when you find it.

Wow, Betty and Sandi, sounds like the dentist bill was quite a bit. I have some issues that need to be taken care of dentally but we don't have the money for it so I just hold out.

Cindy, I've also used this format with some other groups so am somewhat used to it. It's just that it was really easy to use the old format here and it became a very comfortable habit.

Sugar, sounds like your dream was really something. However, I don't think it means you'll be crossing the Rainbow Bridge permanently. I think it was a dream to comfort you to let you see your beloved Pudge and your sister and know that Tom will be with them. I think your spirit may have escorted Tom but that you'll come back as it was just letting you see that Tom will be in loving company. That's just my take on your dream. I'm sorry that Shirley Snake wiped out your toads but am sure you're glad she's not there now. Hopefully your toads will come back soon. I'm also sorry that you have so few squirrels left due to the hawks and owls. Squirrels are so cute and smart. Sounds like you live on a dangerous road.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Wow Sugar that was some Dream. How's that Mouse doing you haven't mentioned him lately. Had to go back to the Dentist as it hurts where he pulled the tooth, got infection and a bloodclot, got some medicine, not  feeling too well so its a early bedtime for me! Goodnight from Stripes & Me.

Cattitude.gifFor Mouse from Stripes This fits Stripes, too bad it didn't say Little Mister Cattitude!

5 years ago

Hi Sandi and Darla, just wanted to drop in and say hello. I am so sorry you are having trouble with the dental work. I hope it quits hurting very soon and the infection is gone soon too. Keep taking your meds until they are gone. Don't do too much. Mouse says thank you Stripes! Mouse is doing good. He fits in more and more. He has the greatest purr. He is either using litter box or going potty outside. Nothing on the floor.

Darla I just live on a road that is a country road. It wasn't meant for much traffic and as homes are built, it becomes more dangerous. There is just no way to get off of the road without falling in a creek or ravine in many places and one of those places is just above my driveway on the right and then on the left the little bridge over my creek. It is only dangerous if drivers are having a problem, speeding or something worse, like drunk or doped or even a little sleepy.

Well, Good night, as Sandi says, don't let the bedbugs bite!

Sugar

5 years ago

Good Morning. Well, the bedbugs didn't bite! I didn't even get a mosquito bite last night.

Another day not being able to stay home. I am going with Ellen to get apples and what ever else catches my eye that looks good, like pears, if there are any. They are my favorite fruit from trees. Then we go to Dorothy Lane Market who has the best bread! We don't go often, but I try to get a loaf (round) of salt Rye when we do. Oh, that is good.

Mouse is a good boy. Right now he is watching the deer eat or the rabbit that is on the other side of the deer. I am not sure which one he is watching. Again, nothing on the floor anywhere. I will be glad when I trust him enough to be able to quit checking every morning. I had to stop in the middle of posting Mouse is a good boy to go give the deer a little corn snack. I bet if I left the garage door open they would come into the garage and help themselves. I wonder if deer can get foundered? The youngsters are finally beginning to lose their spots. It seems they have lasted longer than normal this year.

Everyone have a wonderful Thursday.

Good morning, all! Hope y'all are doing well and things are going great. Things are good here. Had my routine mammogram yesterday afternoon then went to the library. I got several books at the libraryy that I think will be good ones. I managed to get one I'd read before but considering as much as I read that's pretty good. Today I water my plants.

Sandi, I'm so sorry that you got an infection where your tooth was pulled. That really sucks. Hope you get better soon. Love all your pictures, they're so cute. Hope Stripes is doing well.

Sugar, glad to hear that Mouse is doing so well and not using the floor. I'm glad he's fitting in more and more. Your country road sounds beautiful. I can see how it'd be dangerous for drivers who are not paying attention or who are not in their right mind {drunk, doped up, etc}. Hope you got your fruit and bread and had a good time while you were out with your friend. I can just picture the deer helping themselves to the corn! lol Seriously though, it's great that you feed them and get to watch them as the babies grow and they live out their lives. That would be so wonderful.

Everyone take care and have a fantastic day.

I am doing great,all but for today seem unknown reason none of us and the kattie's were not able to stay awake this morning until around 3pm this afternoon.so we all were sleeping this morning.which made me mad at myself because I was to go for my new frames to replace the one's I have that have a crack in the frame.Do a few other stuff.I was in bedlast night at 8pm so it was uncalled for.i is still raining here as it has done all day long.My bleed sugar was up today and that not good at all.So I was eating smaller meal's which did help a lot.Harry started dinner it looks as we area haveing soppy joe's for dinner tonight and vegtable's and chips if we have any chips,if not that ok too.You all have a great start to a wesome weekend ,which came upon us fast once again,love you all.

yes everoyone here can call me Teri,it be nice if you would please.The past six months Big Mack will be sating in the hallway on the dresses and all at oncelet out a loud cry and does this twice or more a day since his twin bother past over.So we belive that he is seeing the ghost of his bother and other's that have past over.I have talked to him about it and it seem to help him.I wish that I knew for sure.I have Harry put the hallway light and that all so seem's to help him being that he like to sleep on my long dresser in the hallway.The person that is saleing the house we have our eye's on has ask for me to call her so that we can talk about the house.which I plan to do in the morning..di you all hear about New York's new law about soda?that if you go to eat out you cannot driink soda over 16 oz in a resturan.What next?Love you all and God bless you all as well¢¾

5 years ago

Teri, I am sorry they passed the soda law. What next? Well the cutting down of food servings in restaurants was first, remember? Then salt and sugar. I am waiting for the axe to fall on something else. Keep us posted on your potential new home! Cats are very sensitive and he just might be seeing his twin and others.

Harry it is good some days to just take it easy and catch up on sleep and rest. I'm glad you are getting more rain. We need more, today I have to water the few pots of flowers I have. They are all in the same area and so very easy to water. Good luck on getting your new frames.

Darla I will try to delete your duplicate post after posting this. Wish me luck on it!!!! The first time on this new format. I had no luck on getting apples. Apples have gone up so much I wouldn't buy any. Would you believe the last small bag I bought at a orchard was only $5.50 and now they are up to $11.50 and more depending on the variety. So I can't buy apples at an orchard any more. I did get my loaf of salt rye and it is good. I had a slice (I always get it sliced) with butter and peanutbutter. A great bedtime snack! I'm not the only one who loses posts. Mouse started one yesterday and it went out into outerspace like so many others. Later when he has time he will start another. One of the does showed up with only one of her twins this morning. Of course I am worrying, hopefully needlessly. The twins are getting older and more adventuresome and independent. I hope the baby shows up soon.

Sandi, Mouse is with Stripes, he wants to know where the tuna treats and toys are too! I hope the pain is all gone even if the infection still needs attention. Wish me luck now, I am going to delete a duplicate post for Darla. I hope I don't delete Darla!!

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. I watered my plants yesterday then it rained! It rained most of the late afternoon/evening and on into the night. So my plants that aren't under the porch got extra water yesterday. I hope that it isn't too much. I had one plant that got too much water shortly after I got it an it drowned; unfortunately I think the pot it was in didn't drain well. Besides computer stuff I've been reading. Not much else going on here.

Sugar, first off, thanks for deleting my extra post; it is much appreciated. Sorry the apples were so much. That price just seems outrageous to me. I'm glad you got your salt rye bread and that your bedtime snack was good. It sure sounds good. So mama deer showed up with only one of her babies. I'd worry too. I also hope the other baby shows up soon.

Teri, yes it sounds like your cat may be seeing the spirit of his brother. I do believe that the spirits of our feline friends can stick around. It's good that you're going to talk to the realtor about the house. I hope y'all get it. Wow, New York is passing a law about drink sizes! That just sounds ludicrous. What will they come up with next?

Harry, sounds like y'all needed some extra sleep. I think that when we need sleep our bodies make us sleep whether we think we need it or not even if it is for long hours. I'm sorry your blood sugar was up. I hope you got it under control.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Ray got 2 new cat things today. The first is a cat tower that hangs over a door. It has 4 sections where cats can climb into it. The second is like a square tent and with a scratching post. It is part of a modular system where you can build a whole kitty "city". Will have to get pictures to share. Not much going on here. Just my usual reading and computer stuff.

Sugar, did the twin show up for dinner last night or breakfast this morning? Hope Mouse and your other kitties are doing well.

Sandi, first I want to thank you for the testimonial you put on my page. Itis so sweet and much appreciated. Next, I'm with Sugar in that I love all the kitties you've been posting. Thank you for sharing.

Teri, sounds like you are very stressed. It also sounds to me like maybe you shouldn't make the move. You're right in that a move should be good for you. It's supposed to make things better. Just my opinion as I'm sure you and Harry will do the right thing. You and Harry are the boss not Michelle.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

yes that is ture that we are the boss of michelle,she is 16 yrs old and at a point in her life where she went to act as adult instead of a teenager that she is .I try hard to tell her who is in change at this time but she starts her yelling and fighting with me to the point that I can not take it any more.There was a family meeting held and we all agree at that time to move up north only if her mom ,my daughter would not get into our bussnies.which she has already try to do and has open her big mouth and telling people that we are moveing up by her. when Harry and I had decide that this move was going to be a fresh start for us and the kat's,which we were going to disapp a nd start a new chater in our lifes.which we would be unable to now.and that I belive is one reason why Harry and I both do not feel like we did about the move at the start.So what is a person to do ?it has me stress to the limted this time around.I make a move to Edwardbug,mich eight years ago and it was the wrong move to make.Which we all agree about at that tme we would never again make a move that did not feel right to either one of us.

She has her whole life in front of her and you are at a point in your life that you don't need to be stressed out. Don't move where you and Harry don't want to go. That is my advice, and since it didn't cost anything, I doubt that it is worth anything. I just hate that you are going through all of this. I will keep you in my prayers.

Hi Penny, so glad to hear from you. I'm a year older now too, I just had a birthday. Hurry up and get over your cold! Also I told Donna when you are ready to take over the Chit Chat thread, just let me know. It is even easier now. No pinning/unpinning.

Okay Sandi, I haven't been able to post pictures for several days. I am going to try one more time..........

I can't do it, I tried! I love posting pictures, but .............

Okay, this is my third attempt to post. If this is a duplicate I apologize.

Good morning all! Hope this finds yall doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. My son came over yesterday with his son and his girlfriend's kids. They hung out here for awhile then we {except for Ray who was suffering with allergies} went to the park for a couple hours after which we took my grandson back to his mom. Of course, I consider my son's girlfriend's kids my grandkids as well. It's raining again today. I'm hoping my plants that are not covered by the porch don't get too much water as I don't want to lose another plant that way. I'll check them later today when I go to water the ones under my porch.

Teri, teenagers can be rough. I'm sorry that you're so stressed out. As for the move, I agree with everyone else in that you shouldn't do it if it's not right for you. If you're having doubts like this then it probably isn't the right thing to do. Just weigh the pros and cons and go from there.

Sandi, as usual your pictures are cute. I love the tag you made for Mouse. I'm sorry that you're still having problems with your infection. I hope you get better soon.

Penny, welcome back! We all really missed you and are so happy that you're back. I'm sorry that you caught a cold and hope you get better soon.

Hi Sugar and Donna.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Everyone thank you for all the great advise you have giveing to me.I agree not to make the move that I not feeling its not the right thing to do for this family.but Harry went get out of milwaukee,but I just went to move somewhere in milwaukee because I am this great program that pay for all my medcail supplie and wheelchair and scoter ect.So Harry said we could just move to Dodge,County which is 90 miles out of milwaukee,but I will still lose the program and with my health going like it has been that program will be there to caught when I need it.I beginningto belive that this is a test from God onceagain to see how I wil handle it this time.so yeas thank you for all the advise and I wil be useing samre of it.love you all and pray that your weekend was awesome for you all.¢¾

Teri, unless you can get the same type of program in another county I'd think seriously about moving out of Milwaukee County. Having a program that pays for all your medical supplies is very important and a huge "pro" for staying in the county. That's just my two cents.

Darla,

why would you move out of milwaukee? have lived in Milwaukee or what?



Yes, you are all rightAnd I will keep processing it all over and over with Harry.I do trust my self that why I am so stress out about the moveI miss chose a move once eight years ago and I do not plan on doing this over again..And have this feeling about moveing out of milwaukee county.Right the anwer will be in my heartand gut and I will know when its the right for us all even the kat's.Off to bed to wake to a new day and a other new week.Gods bless¢¾


yes the program is the most importion thing on the list. to me any ways.I mean I was on a waiting list for at less six years to get on the program a year ago.

Hi Stripes, Sandi, Darla, Teri and everyone else. A cool day again. Not cold, just right. Yesterday I cut down two big honeysuckle bushes and a few small ones and went around chopping down new bamboo sprouts and then spraying them with Roundup. And I cut down a few wild roses without bleeding out. Hopefully in a few years there will be no new bamboo sprouts!!! I am following advice I found on google. I rue the day I first planted that stuff. Don't ever plant bamboo without getting the type that doesn't have runners underground! Check with your local greenhouses.

Teri, hang in there and remember don't act in haste. Do what is best for you and Harry.

I have to get dressed soon. We will be leaving very soon.

Take care and enjoy this new week,

Good morning all! Hope y'all are doing well and things are going great. Things are good here. I checked all my plants and one pot was full of too muh water. I drained it but now I have a bunch of very wet soil. It''s my purple viola so I hope I don't lose it. I won't be watering it again for a while I guess, will just keep an eye on it. The other plants seem to be doing okay. Am having problems with my butterfly credits again {or still} ~ it keeps subtracting credits so I have less than I am supposed to. Very frustrating. Anyone else having this problem?

Teri, no I've never lived in Milwaukee. I live in Texas. I just meant that if you have a wonderful program like you do I would seriously consider staying in that county especially if you were on a waiting list to get it. I know you're stressed and I'm so sorry for that. I also trust that you'll do the right thing for you and Harry. Thank you for the green star, it is much appreciated.

Sandi, I love Stripes in the tree.

Sugar, sounds like you did alot of work. Wow, you're still cutting down bamboo runners! Hope the advice you found on google helps.

I'm back!  Sorry I've been missing for the last few days.  Had a little minor surgery on my eye Friday.  Nothing too serious, and it's healing nicely.  (Do have to go back to the doctor this Friday for him to check it.)  Main reason for my absence has been computer trouble, though.  My "tech support" son came over and fixed that problem for me this evening.  So far so good -- I seem to be back in business!  : )

Good morning all! Hope y'all are doing well and things are going great. Things here are good. There's a family reunion for my {step}dad's family this SAturday in my hometown of Lampasas which is about 2.5 hours from here. Haven't figured out yet if I'm going or not. It really depend son whether or not my son goes and if he will be able to let us ride with him. Our car is not up for such a road trip according to Ray as there are some repairs it needs before such a trip could be made. My mom is really hoping we're all able to go as both my brothers and my sister will be there. Not much else going on, just reading and computer stuff.

Angie, good to see you. Are you happy with the cooler weather or do you want the warm stuff back? We're a bit cooler here than we have been. It's nice except for the fact that I can't go to the pool anymore since the water is too cold for comfort.

Sandi, love the kitty picture with your name on it; the flowers are beautiful and the kitty is adorable. I'll have to look for a kitty with white roses as that is my favorite flower. Do you think there's one out there?

Betty, glad to hear that your eye surgery went well and everything's okay. Also, glad to hear that your son was able to get your computer fixed.

Teri, sounds like you and Harry have made a decision. That is great! I wish you the best of luck, may everything go smoothly.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hi everyone! I've had a busy five days with my granddaughter so I haven't had alot of time to post. She is a 3 year old bundle of energy and makes me glad I had my kids young..lol. My daughter is here now so it's not so hectic. The cats are all sleeping downstairs, trying to stay away from Keira but earlier, all 3 were sleeping on my bed...AT THE SAME TIME.

Teri...it sounds like you've made a decision about your move...I'm glad. It is so hard to balance your options when everyone isn't in agreement but I figure once you've raised your family, you're entitled to live life to suit yourself. Teenagers will find a way to whine about any decision you make anyway....might as well make sure you and Harry get the winning end. With the price of gas these days, you don't want to be too far from doctors and vets. BE HAPPY

Darla, I don't mind the cooler weather right now. It's been a long hot summer and working outside has been a sweaty experience. There is alot to be done outside before it snows; I want to plant garlic this week and close down some of my garden so I welcome the cool temperatures.

I don't know where to start here! Teri, you are first. I agree with Angie. You and Harry know what is best for the three of you. teenagers think they know what is best, but they have a lot to learn. Congratulations on the great home schooling you are evidently giving your granddaughter. keep up the good work.

Sandi I love seeing Stripes and Mouse dancing. Mouse is having a wonderful time with this cooler weather. I was outside in the back 40 as I call it and Mouse saw me from the deck and he came flying down to me and the dogs, he was just a grey streak and then he took off again the same way after one of my few squirrels which just made it up the tree! Then he ran and played, tried to get Chewy to chase him. Chewy got chased quite a bit too. It was great to see them play together. Poor little Mouse need to be close to Stripes to have a play mate. All my kitties are too old to play. He's reduced to playing with a dog!!!

Karen, did I just read Emma had kittens? Oh you are so lucky to have grandkitties. Kittens are so sweet and loveable from the moment of birth! Wait until they learn to use the litter box! Oh so cute!

Betty so glad you are back! And your computer and eyes have been successfully operated on!

Hi Darla and everyone else. Dogs are wanting to be fed. They stay in bed much longer than the kitties.

Good morning....I must have had my eyes closed last night when I was posting. I didn't notice Karen's news about the kittens. CONGRATULATIONS!! We haven't had a litter of kittens for so long....I just love them.

I thought my kitties were too old to play too Sugar (except for Bandit) Last week I was playing with Bandit on my bed. We play a game where she is trying to catch my hand under the pillows and she is fast. I am covered with scratches. Anyway, Roxy came in and jumped on the bed and watched. Then she got this real kittenish look on her face and she joined in the game for about 20 minutes. It was the cutest thing I'd seen in a while. All the older cats are about 5 years old and if I drag my housecoat tie across the floor when I get up to make coffee in the morning, the cats knock themselves out trying to grab it....lol.

Brrrr....its chilly this morning. I think I'll go outside and have a look at my own "back 40" and see if we got frost last night.

Have a great day!! I'll check back later.

It's been MANY years since I've seen newborns! Emma did very well. The births seemed to go very well. The last kitten that i thought was a calico is not. Now that she's cleaned up and dry she is black and white spotted. She is definitely the smallest but all 4 seem to be nursing strongly so odds are all are healthy. Emma is a good Mom and was ready for a hearty breakfast this morning.

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Nothing much going on, just reading and now I'm on to computer stuff. Care2 will keep me busy for awhile.

Sandi, I love the picture of Stripes and Mouse dancing! Yes, on that picture of a kitty with white roses. Use my name as I have five cats and it wouldn't be fair to single one out though I do know which one I'd single out if I were to do so! I do appreciate your searching for a picture for me.

Karen, congratulations on your grandkittens! They are all so adorable! Of course, newborns usually are. They're so much fun to watch as they grow and learn everything they have to learn. The only hard part is giving up those kittens to another home when the time comes.

Sugar, of course the dogs stay in bed longer than the cats. Cats have to make sure they don't miss anything that happens in their domain!

Donna, good to see you here.

Angie, glad you're enjoying the cooler weather. Hope you get your garlic planted. A 3 year old granddaughter, huh? Yes, they are something at that age. My grandson is 20 months and a little bundle of energy. When he comes over I have to watch some of the cats with him as they scratch him if he grabs them. He still hasn't learned not to grab the cats and try to pick them up. He loves our aquarium and will watch the "fishies" for quite awhile.

I have an 8 year old and a 9 year old cat that both still play though my 12 year cat doesn't. Of course, the 2 year old and the 1 year old are all about play.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Ohhhh, Karen, a silver tabby. I just love silver tabbies. We had one named Romeo but our daughter took him when she moved out. He got sick recently and had to be euthanized as there was nothing else they could do. Our daughter was devastated. Have you named the kittens yet?

5 years ago

Oh, I can't name them or else I would have to keep them all and I already have too many. I plan to keep Emma but the babies need adoptive homes. I have some local rescue groups that have offered assistance in getting the word out on the babies and finding good forever homes for them. Next will come a low-cost spay for Emma and she will be my forever girl.

Karen,Conget to you and Emma ..will here is a up date and I think you all will feel happy for us.Harry a nd I have for the past four days talk it over and over again and I bring Harry back to earth when I asked him have he would paid for the ride to the hosptail if he had to be rush to the VA..that put a dead stop on the why he went the move.Harry has agree with me to move within milwaukee county to one be able to stay on the program,2,so that he is close to VA.and other stuff as wel/We are looking for a side by side in west allis.wis..so that michele can have her own res to learn what it take to get it in order and that she will have to do dish's and take the trash out and other stuff.So it has came to a end and I feel a let better about the move how.only if we can find what we are looking for by dec,if not Janury 2013 is my deadline to move.Michele can go to the high school I went to.its just now getting the stuff in the house packed up and ready for a move andto sale our moblie home before we home.Harry does not went to move unless it buy fisrt.THank you again everyone for the awesome advise.

Stick to your guns Teri. This is your life now. Michele has her whole life in front of her and might as well learn how to deal with disappointment. Life isn't a bowl of cherries right? I don't really like cherries that much anyway except for marachino. Love those! Enjoy the day. It is a beauty.

Teri, congratulations on your decision. Sounds like it was the right one for you and Harry. Michelle will come around. She'll have to learn to live with your decision. Hope your blood work turns out well.

Sugar, glad you had a great walk with Chewy. I'm sorry that you're having so many frustrations with the new format.

Angie, wow, you're looking for frost on your pumpkins already? Must be much cooler where you're at than where I am. If you want the frost, I hope you get it.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

5 years ago

LOL...no Darla, I'm not wanting frost but we had 2 frost warnings last week so I'm keeping an eye out. I still have lots going on in the garden so if we get frost, I'm going to have to cover alot of stuff. It just started to rain again which is definitely the norm for fall. The days are still warm for the most part but the nights are getting very cool and I've put the furnace on a few times to take the edge off in the morning while my granddaughter was here.
How are the kittens this morning?? Cute as buttons I'm certain. We used to have kittens all the time and I raised german sheppard pups for about 10 years. The worst was finding homes for them all...I cried after delivering each and every kitten and puppy. I also ended up keeping a few, usually the runts. I have a soft spot for all things small I'm only 5'2" and 110 lbs. but my husband says when I'm angry, I come across like a much larger person...lol. He would know I guess.
I'm still not having any luck posting pictures anywhere. I've lost many posts on this board and others that I'm a member of. My comments sometimes show up and sometimes not and its a crapshoot every time I try to sign a petition. I hope all these problems get ironed out soon...it's very frustrating!

All 4 babies are still fine. Of course they cannot regulate their body temperature so they need to snuggle with their mom. They nurse and sleep--like all infants.

I will try to post some pictures soon of the tortoises and frog and furkids, I am not very good at computer stuff. I might see if my husband can help me he is good with that kind of thing.

It is raining again today and it is cold. I feel sorry for my ferals when it starts to get cold out. One of my ferals who I named Mittens has been coming to my house for about a year and a half he used to eat and then leave. Lately he has become friendly and now he lives on my side porch he stays there 24 hours a day and meows to be petted. I think I need to find him a home but it will be hard, all the rescues are so full especially with kittens and everyone wants a kitten instead of an adult cat (I like adults better myself). I wish I could keep him but I already have 5 and already have two males and this one outside is a male. My youngest male is a terror to the other cats and I just don't think it is fair to my older cats to bring in another (3 of my cats are fairly old 18, 14 and 13). I sure hope it warms up a little.

Good morning all! I really do dislike this new format. I have a few other time consuming problems with it, but with time maybe. I am just at the age where I don't like to make changes in my life. Karen, please snuggle one of the babies for me. It is never too early to give them extra love from their grandmother. Teri hang in there. I have found in life things tend to work out, some times a little slower than we like, but it does happen. Hi Angie and Darla. I am enjoying fall weather right now. As is Mouse. Oh my goodness, is he ever enjoying this weather. One thing I haven't mentioned, he has allergies, hot weather being a problem for him, he's itching a little right now. We'll take care of it.

I gotta go in a few minutes. I will be back,

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Just my usual daily grind of reading and computer stuff.

Angie, wow, 2 frost warnings. It's a bit cooler here but nowhere close to frost warnings. Will have to wait til December at least before that happens. I hope you don't get the frost yet and your garden stays safe. I cover my plants too when it gets down to freezing though there are a few I bring in and keep in our extra bathroom ~ those are my ivies since they're more susceptible to the cold. I have a snake plant that is pretty cold sensitive too but I can't bring it in b'cuz it's in a huge pot {all my plants are in pots}.

Karen, the babies sound like they're doing just fine.

Teri, sounds like y'all have a plan. As Sugar said, hang in there; things will work out the way they're supposed to.

Sugar, poor Mouse. I'm sure y'all will get his itching under control.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Good morning everyone!! I'm not liking this format and all the problems its posed for me either Sugar. Every morning I get up and check to see if I can post a picture yet. When they first changed over, I couldn't post messages at first either and that was totally frustrating. Yes, it really smells like fall today...tomorrow is the first day of Autumn I like the cooler temperatures during the day although I'm not liking these close to freezing temperatures we've been getting at night. It's 66 degrees F or 18 degrees C here right now and I think it's cooler than most days. Probably because it is overcast; the sunshine always seems to warm things up quickly. I hope Mouse finds some relief from his itching.

I wish we didn't get frost before December....that would save me alot of worry over my garden Darla. One year we got frost on September 1st...I was so upset; it wiped out most of my vegetable garden. The last 2 years it seems like summer is hanging on longer than usual, at least around my house. The leaves are barely turning colour and its only a few weeks till Canadian Thanksgiving. Previously, our leaves used to all be changed and off the trees by Thanksgiving. Global warming??? Who knows.

I hope you have another productive day sorting through the storage bin Teri. The work should go easier now that you have made up your mind about things. Stay positive!!

Have a great day everyone. I will check back later.

Oh Angie! With all the problems we had with the other format, I would rather have it than all these new problems! I have a hard time scrolling up and down these threads without going all most to the top or bottom without meaning too and my newly posted post is at the bottom now.

I have something in my eye and I have to go to the firehouse and have Bill look at it to see if he can get it out. I tried last night with no luck. I hoped it would come out after sleeping, but it didn't.

Sandi I was so happy to see my new picture on the thread! Thank you so much for posting it. Please be sure that Stripes see it. I want her to know I was thinking of her when mom snapped the pic. See the wooden stepladder behing me? That is the one I come racing into the room, jumping on the top and then sliding on the floor! It is just like a carnival ride. I love doing it.

Darla and everyone, I have to go now. I was waiting for the bank to open to get quarters. I am going to the laundramat to wash the dogs bed. My washer isn't big enough.

Hugs to all, especially to Stripes from Mouse!

Sugar hope you like the new mouse tag I sent on Mouse's page, also sent you a ecard on care2. Stripes is grounded until I give in. hugs to all.

Good morning! Just popping in quickly before I make coffee and explore the yard. Yesterday I found fresh deer tracks near the garden; I was hoping to get up early and see if I could see them but I blew that...lol. Oh well, maybe tomorrow morning.

I hope you manage to get that thing out of your eye Sugar! It's so annoying, I know. I usually end up with cat hair in my eye or nose or worst of all...my throat.

Sandi...what other website do you visit to post? I love all the tags you've put up lately and I just adore the pictures of Mouse...what a handsome boy!! No wonder Stripes is so territorial..LOL

Back soon....just going to check out the world

Good morning Angie, Sandi, Teri. I spent the entire day in Emergency room. Bill couldn't get the whatever out and it was quite painful so he insisted I go to the hospital. He was working at the Fire House and couldn't leave. I didn't get home until 4:30 and all the things I wanted to do yesterday has to be done today plus Church. Sandi, Darla will love her present from Stripes.

This evening I should have more time, at least I hope I get caught up. I did kill a little more bamboo after I got home. I didn't have my Roundup with me so they will come back. I think the ones I cut off and sprayed aren't coming back. That seems to be the way. I hope so anyway. I will continue monitoring and spraying. Girl Dog was good. I didn't know I would be in the hospital that long and I was so worried she would make a mess. A 16 1/2 year old dog doesn't always hold it. Especially since she has never had to, Ray or I was here most of the time and now I am and she hasn't learned to hold it all day.

I hope you, Harry and Michele got lots of rest. Chewy woke me up at 3:30 this morning being sick and I am still sleepy. I did catnap a little after cleaning up.

My eye is still sore. Not too bad, just irritating to me.

Gotta go, take care

Good morning, all! Hope this finds everyone doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Sorry I wasn't here yesterday. I got a call from my son yesterday morning asking if I still wanted to go to the family reunion as he was going so I said yes. I then had 45 minutes to get ready. Ray didn't want to go as he cut his shin Friday at work and his leg was hurting him. He just wanted to stay home and stay off of it. My son's girlfriend couldn't go either as she had alot of homework to do and my son's ex-wife wouldn't let him have his son for the day {he normally gets 5 hours on Saturday and she wouldn't give him extra time} so it was just my son and me. We made the drive to Lampasas in just over 2 hours so we made good time as it's normally about a 2.5 hour drive. The reunion was great. I got to see my sister and brothers {2 of them} whom I haven't seen in a few years. I also got to see other family members I haven't seen in awhile. I even got a compliment from one lady who when being introduced to my son and me said I looked more like his older sister than his mom! We got back about 7:30 last night but I was too tired to post. The drive and reunion took all my energy for the day but it was good.

Sandi, I absolutely LOVE the pictures you made for me! Thanks so very much. The white roses with kittens is beautiful and the basket of 5 kitties with a cute little mouse is adorable. I don't understand why my reply to your message was blank. That's weird and frustrating. Wonder if all my e-mails are going out blank? I do know that I can only respond to e-mails if I try to send one from scratch {so to speak} it doesn't "submit". I have to tell Care2 about that and while I'm doing so I'll let them know my e-mail responses are blank. I'm sorry that you had to go to another web site to post. I'm sure that's frustrating as heck. So tell us, why is Stripes grounded?

Angie, yes, it's nice not getting frost til December. I can't imagine having temps that low already. I hope your garden makes it through. Wow, deer tracks near the garden. How cool. Hope you're able to get up early enough to see them.

Teri, did you get your sewing machine repaired? Sounds like things are really moving along quickly now. Hope that your home sells and that you're able to get that side by side home you have your eye on. I hope Michelle is feeling better after her long rest. It's great that she volunteers.

Sugar, I'm sorry that you had to go to the ER for your eye but I'm glad that they got the object out. It's very painful to have an object in the eye but now that it's out any damage you might have {ie a scratch on the cornea} will heal quickly as our eyes are very quick at healing {I used to be an optometric assistant back when I worked}. It's great that the bamboo you sprayed and cut probably won't come back. Hope you get it all under control.

I've got to water plants today as I didn't get to yesterday so I'll be doing that later. Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.
