Can't sleep. Too much on my mind and that wonderful Mexican supper has given me heart burn. So here I am at 3am getting caught up.

Rose ((hugs)) to you. So sorry to hear about your uncle. No one can replace our family but he is at rest now.

Marym, I'm glad you're living life and not just sitting on the sidelines. Have fun.....just be careful on that bike!

Maryg hope you're feeling better today.

Update on DS#1 friend. The mother opened him up a savings account so she could deposit HIS money from the VA into it for him. Well, we advised him the day of the trial to move that money out of that acct. so she couldn't get to it. He was so busy he didn't get to it and this past Sat. she wiped out the acct. We think she was gambling in MS with new boyfriend. Since he is not yet 18 I don't think legally there is anything we can do. We're checking on it. So sad.

Well it's 3:05am and I have a load of laundry washing and one drying praying I don't wake anyone up. Maybe I'll get all my e-mail work caught up. Study maybe...

Thanks Renee but I'm not planning on that happening! I've been in this family for 22 years and BIL doesn't faze me in the least...I just shot back at him that I wouldn't know or care if he was there or not....LOL

Good afternoon ladies I had this page up for ever I got caught up in seeing that move Orphan, and couldn't stop her on the comp originally just was going to see if it was possible to see and it started so I started to watch and it got good and tht was it saw the whole thing.. its so keeps you on he edge of your seat and has a twist,, So thumbs up for that one...

OK back to busy,,

Patti prayers for your daughters boyfriends family including her in there, may she be a great comfort to him at this time.. it is a hard one...

Nancy may your week b filled with some rest and less tears, is it the first time he is going to be away from home.

Maryg you need to start taking some preventives. like vitamin c and antioxidants...Some lemon and honey concoction...lol Please please take care of the only you there is...

Rene thank you so much for giving me a pat on the back and telling me that I keep you guys on a toes action....lol your such a wonderful person and try your hardest to get all in your post.. I know its hard when sparks acts up...You deserve the time on the beach, alls i can say is I would have loved to be there...My Mil took care of UC for about two years but she was kinda nasty to him.. I know its hard being a caregiver but I did it for him every time she went away and didnt find it too hard taking care a man that was so submissive and sweet, but I could tell he didnt like her and that might b the reason why he might have given her a hard time, she was so loud with him and then would turn around and be all kind with the kids...its a long story and many times we didnt see eye to eye...but its all good he is at peace and she is out of his life...

marym thank u so much for those prayer they are welcome at all time..But u b extra careful hun..

For just in case I want to thank you all for your wonderful prayers at this time of a lost, seems like there are too many..But lets rejoice and be happy for those that dont have to be here at the end of times..So thank God for all that he has done for us at every time that we have needed him..He and you gals are wonderful , not that Irma comparing because if I had a choice you gals are out...lol luv ya all with a smile on my face of course...

Rose

God loves you, So why not Love yourself enough to make a change in life for the better, your health...

Trusting God that is in your heart to accomplish a goal in life is such a reward...

Gene used to buy sewer treatment systems from the girl's dad. We didn't know them socially. Saw our ex-employee's pic on the news last night. Arrested for negligent homicide. He needs to stay there the rest of his life. Your BIL was harsh! If it's any comfort, I'll be there, MaryM! Just kidding...that's not going to happen....right?

Rose...so sorry to hear about your Uncle Charlie, you and your family are in my prayers.

Renee...we are VERY careful on the bike BUT you never know what the other idiots are gonna do. I read about the couple killed, breaks my heart for their families and especially their child.

Seems my BIL knew the family and boy did I get a speech from him. You know how dangerous it is when you get on that thing...I'm not telling you not to but you know........in the end he told me that if I was killed while riding he would not come to my funeral. Gotta love that man!!!

Welcome, Cathy. Come by often and it won't be long until we feel like old friends!

Rose, yes, thank you. We needed that kick in the pants. So sorry about your uncle. How long did your MIL have to care for him? Being a caregiver is really hard. DS has been in a wheelchair for 16 years now. I have had moments that I'm not proud of. But I've learned over the years that I have to take time out for myself every now and then or I won't have the fuel I need to keep going. (This team is a vital way I recharge!) You keep sparking, girl. We need you to keep us in line.

Dee and MaryM, be careful out there! Motorcycles scare me. A friend's daughter and SIL were killed on one last week in a head on collision with a drunk driver. Turns out the drunk driver was a former employee of ours that gave us fits. Quit with no notice and kept our company truck! We had to track it down and recover it. Then we held his last paycheck until he returned our company cell phone. He returned it with no sim card. When I told him I still couldn't give him his check until he returned the sim card, he first pretended he didn't know what a sim card was, then said he'd go home and try to find it, but could he have the phone back. WHAT??? UH, NOOOO!!!! Should have known then, the boy had serious problems.

Anyway...got on a tangent there....please be careful. But I'm glad you had a good time, MargM and a desert trip in the fall sounds like fun, Dee.

MargG, I'm a little late catching up due to my problems with Spark, but just don't forget to find joy in your life. God has you here for a reason. Your family needs you and the family that has passed on before you wouldn't want you to miss out on life. Live it to the fullest. Leave those little grandchildren with wonderful memories of a joyful Nana! God loves you and won't put anything on you that he can't give you the grace to handle. The only attitude we can change is our own.

Patti, praying for DD boyfriend's family.

Nancy, how you doing? Getting nervous about DS? Is his friend going to school with him?

Good morning,

What's the plan for today? A head cold for me. I'm taking it easy. I have a good book I want to finish.

Welcome to our little corner of the world Cathy.

Nancy I'm glad to be in better routine, too. I miss Ms6YrOld. I'll get her, & Ms7MoOld in abt 2 wks. Sometimes I feel like a non custodial parent.

Welcome to the group Cathy!! I think you'll find this discussion group to be very warm and inviting. We're like family in here. So stick around and tell us about yourself.

Renee I feel your pain. Remember about 6 months ago I had the problem of being constantly bumped out. I never got e-mail notification. Then one day everything got better. I tried lots of stuff but I think posting a question about it on the technical site under message boards is what helped. I think it got someone's attention to the problem. Good Luck!

Well it's pretty cloudy here today from the tropical storm in the gulf. Made it lots cooler...yeah!!!

Kids are back at school and into their routines which is great for me. I'm working 3 days a week with DH and still studying whenever possible. We take DS#1 to down to college in Tampa on Friday. Busy week!!

Talk later gators!

What the HECK is wrong with spark? My start page tells me that the last post on this thread was at about 10:00 this morning by Nancy, yet the last post I can see was Patti's from last Thursday! UGH!

Anywho, thanks for the birthday wishes. Went for a girl's weekend at the beach with my sis. Didn't want to come home! I can't comment on other of your posts because I CAN'T SEE THEM!!! I need to get in touch with a spark tech person and try to figure it out.

Hi everyone. It was a rough weekend as my daughter's boyfriend's brother drowned in a tragic accident Saturday night. He was only 27 and physically fit and was swimming in a pond when he suddenly became exhausted and sank. They recovered his body in 14 feet of water, but nobody really knows at this point what happened. This family has had such tragedy as his Mom was struck by a drunk driver as she was crossing a street several years ago and they are still grieving for her.
Prayers are appreciated.
Fondly,
Patti

Good morning,

Nancy how are you?

Kristy I think that's abt the way a funny farm should look. The horses have come up. It's beautiful.

MaryM that sounds like a great trip. I don't think I'd be too thrilled abt the water tho. But definitely worth the adventure.

What's the plan for today? Housekeeping, & hiking for me. I was too pooped to pop yesterday after Mr3, & Ms1YrOld spent the night. We had a great time!!!! They partied all night long!!!! Gonna have to work on NegativeNewmann's attitude.... guess there are more benefits to not being able to hear....

OMG....AWESOME motorcycle trip with Bill!!!

We headed out for Biloxi at 8am Saturday, saw rain on the horizon so we stopped to put on the raingear..rode in the rain for all of 15 minutes, rode Hwy 90 along the coast, stopped in Biloxi for lunch and ended up walking around Beau Rivage & people watched while the rain passed over...headed on to Dauphin Island where friends where spear fishing, not expecting to find them. They happened to have come in early so we talked to them for awhile and headed back to stay in Pascagoula. Started out this morning with raingear (just in case) boy were we glad...Hwy 90 HOLDS WATER...we hit a spot @ 40mph...it came over the windshield and hit Bill who could not see, he just locked his elbows and prayed...came over Bill and got me...I prayed too!!! Raingear works unless of course it goes down your neck and up the pants legs and into your boots! We managed to get thru more "puddles" with less water getting us. When we did stop we poured water out our boots and poor Bill shirt was soaked. If he would have thought about it...he could have gotten a great pic of me sitting on the ground with boots off ringing the water out my socks!!! He hugged me and told me "you're a trooper" and I said why do you say that...he told me 'cause you haven't bitched about being wet, having an iron butt or anything else"...HECK call me crazy but I was having fun! We did manage to get out of the raingear for the biggest part of the way home. Got back to his house around 1pm today...500 miles in 2 days!!! We both took a nap...I didn't even hear the helicopter that landed near by @ the school, woke him up!!!

OH did I mention we saw a rainbow this morning!!!

LIFE IS GOOD!!! emoticon

MaryG - I thought of you today. We were traveling
and on the way home I saw a farm that had everything
painted red & white stripes. The house and sheds. Even the top of the silo was red & white stripes. It reminded me of a circus and I thought "Oh, that's
what a funnyfarm looks like"

I just have one leather jacket. It weighs ALOT, so I just wear it in the fall and winter. I just wear long sleeve t-shirts or other jackets for warmer weather (denim is nice).

Just FYI, if you are going to be in the chilly weather, cover your neck! Turtlenecks are nice, because that wind hits between helmet (full-faced) and collar.

I checked at Wilson's leathers (on way home from Gulf Shores closest one I know of is 2 hrs away)but didn't REALLY know what I was looking for...lol Bill says I need to get one with a zip out lining, and I need to have it before we go to TN the end of Sept. So I guess we can check that out while in Biloxi.

The ones I really like don't have a zip out lining so I really dont know what the heck to do...

I got my leathers from a biker/leather shop in OKC. They had everything! In fact I got my chaps, vest, do-rag and a long sleeve t-shirt as a package special.

Chaps are hard to put on, but they look so cool! Plus they are pretty warm.

Marym, I have harley boots, chaps, vest and leather jacket complete with fringe! I look like a force to be reckoned with! LOL My head is too small for a do-rag though, I can't keep one on! So I either have helmet, or pony tail.

ok this is starting to get me on the pisses side...dont worry I am not pissed on just pissed off...lol but not to the point of no return.. I posted a happy birthday Renee and its not there, now if I take a look and see if my post is here and then see it there...its just [plan spark ons doings...

well I am finally down 2.2 was 179.9 Now 177.7. thank the Lord and my escape team with all the challenges I have created with them has kept me on my toes...lol Now 40 something is my home but we tend to not get in the act here any more, we are family and talk about what is going on.. and well that is good too, we get to set it free and not let it hinder us from the actual goal and that is to lose and burn...So carry on ladies, any one up for a challenge...lol

Maryg you and yours will b just fine, when oyu have the Lord by your side its easy to find your way back, having a little disappointment , grief , sorrow just makes us that much stronger when we have God to lean on and good people by your side..praise the Lord and shout..Amen

Maryg, I wish you would either change the picture of the pool, or put me in it! LOL It looks so inviting. Congratulations on another one that can get into everything! TeeHee

Marym, glad you finally got your "second wind" as well. DH and I are planning a bike trip to New Mexico in October. Going out through SW Oklahoma, Texas into New Mexico gonna see Riudosa, Roswell, etc. I hope it is not too cold by then! But, I do have my leathers and rain gear.

OMG Maryg...you brought tears to my eyes!

Grief is sooooo hard to describe but you did a good job. It does just suck the air right outta you. Plus you've had added stress. I will keep you and yours in my prayers. If you need me for anything you know how to find me.

I'm sending GREAT BIG emoticon to you...

Thank you. 7 deaths in 8 yrs + a serious illness can knock a person on my rear. But the point is, w/your friendship, it's worked.

Good morning,

What's the plan for today? Hiking, & yard work for me.

I, um, am trying to figure out how to explain what's going on w/me. How do you describe grief? I think it's a natural tendency to dwell on the sadder side of life for a while.... kind of like an under inflated basketball.... still bounces, but not so well. I guess I'm a bit like a reinflated ball. Got a bit more of my bounce back. My timing STINKS. My community is running out of our unemployment benefits. My hubby is/will be confounded because he's used to dealing w/that flat ball. He may be a bit flat inflated himself.... I think he's down right smushed like a pancake... but what do I know? On a less important note, but still worth working on... I do look, & will look like I'm preg till I get within 15 lbs of goal wt. (I must admit I do look a lot better in a T, & shrank out of my swimsuits).... life goes on...

Anywho, 0 miles done. 4.5 to go

(Must be the sassy new hair cut)

Thanks for your prayers my spark friends.

Oh, I bought a few spark shirts (smaller size). If someone sees me walking, & sweating away they may as well know where to go to have good people encouraging them.

Most times we make reservations. Sometimes we just get in our truck, & drive. Both ways we have fun.

Maryg...put your gun away!!! No need to shoot me, I doubt we stay at at B&B. We are gonna ride & figure out where were staying when we get there. This is such a change for me...I have always known where I was going and had reservations. Bill not so much, I am learning to fly by the seat of my pants right along with him!!!
