  1. Hi all - hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday. My DS and DIL came up for Thanksgiving, spent Wednesday night to Friday morning with us and then he went to his dad's family dinner and they have now gone home. Both DDs and GSs were here too. It's been a great holiday for us. Only down side is DH had to work the last 2 Saturdays to get Thanksgiving and the day after off. He will do that again for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day holidays. I've been super busy at work (working 12 hour days, 5 days a week). this is the first time I've had any time off in the last month, other th
  2. Good Afternoon!! It's definitely a fall day here--it's cold (51 this morning) but when it's been in the 90's the day before, that's cold and it's been raining. Spent the morning at the Pumpkin Festival with youngest DD and the grandsons. Oldest DD is working 2 jobs now, so youngest one is watching them on the weekends. The boys had a good time. We got 6 pumpkins!! We plan to bake some of them and make pumpkin pies. Joanne - hope you had a great birthday! And it was I love yarn day too!! Hope you were able to purchase some yarn to celebrate your day! Mary - hope your weather i
  3. Hi all, seems as though I don't have a lot of time any more to be on the computer. It's in the boys room and they have "homework" every night on the computer that they have to do and then it's time for them to go to bed. so I can't be on it except when they aren't here. We have a good system (most nights) and have them in bed by 7, of course they really don't go to sleep until 7:30 or later but at least they are laying down and trying to sleep. It's been busy at work, still getting the new boss settled in and "putting out fires" that were left burning when the other ones left. It's ge
  4. Judy - beautiful afghan! I love the colors. Mary - hope things are going well for your DH. I do not like dentists but I found one that I love and she's not in our insurance network But I pay the difference just to go to her. Cindy - Enjoy your day of crafting. When I do a round ripple, I do double strands - goes way faster, less dc to do. But the one round ripple I'm doing for myself (which I recently found when unpacking some more boxes) is single strand dc - and I've got more to do on it. It's something I need to get out and finish. Joanne - glad to see you're almost don
  5. Judy - those hats are so cute!! Mary - what handsome boys!! Getting so big. They grow up so fast! Joanne - hope things are going well for you. I'm on vacation this week. Not going any where since we have the boys. Yesterday the little one wanted to walk to school (it's about 3 blocks from here) and we got to the very first corner (which is the next yard over) and he says his feet hurt LOL. One day was enough, we are now driving to school every day! We do plan on going to the state fair but it will probably next week, payday was the wrong week for us to go this week. Got
  6. Hi everyone! Happy Labor Day! I hope you are having a great holiday. It's been really busy here at home and I've not had time to get on the computer. School started on Aug 19. The little one is in kindergarten again but at least this school has all day kindergarten, so we don't have to pay for a lot of day care now. Oldest one is in 4th grade - where has the time gone? they both love their new school and it's a brand new school as well. No time for crocheting for a while, so hopefully I'll get to do that soon. Christmas will be here before I know it and I won't have anything do
  7. Hi All - I, too, have been MIA (like Marisa). No excuse but that I'm so tired by the end of the day, I just crash in my recliner and rest. The stress in the office has gone way, way down. It's taking time to get things lined out with the new boss but it's working ok. Time will tell. It's still the "honeymoon" stage. LOL. The pups are keeping us busy - laughing. It's so funny to watch them fight over a toy. There's soooo many toys in this house, and they decide to fight over the same one - just like my kids did. Buster Brown seems to want to sit on my lap more than Missy ever did an
  8. Mary - so sorry to hear of all your trials. I would love to join you but unfortunately the bank balance says I can't. You can come here anytime and we'll be here to listen. Wish we lived closer together so I could help you. but you are in my prayers. Glad for the rain for your area. We've been getting some much needed rain and the temps have been sooooo good for June for Oklahoma. Not really too hot (but we still have a lot of summer to get through, so I'm sure we'll hit that wonderful 100 sometime). Joanne - enjoy the little ones! Glad you had a wonderful Saturday. We bought
  9. Hi all!! update on DD - she went back to work but can't drive yet as she's still on pain meds. At least she can go to work this week. She sees the dr next week and hopefully she'll be in a walking cast and be able to do a little bit more. The boys have been pretty good and help her some. Buster Brown and Missy are so cute to watch. Buster has learned to bark (well, squeak maybe) and growl. He's so cute when he barks, one ear goes up. Hopefully it won't be up all the time. Well it's hot and windy here (typical for Oklahoma in June) but at least no bad storms, just a lot of rain
  10. Hi all- I've been MIA again But hopefully i'll be able to be on here more. The new boss is great!!! My stress level is gone way down. We have a "no drama zone" in the office!! Now just to get the old boss to keep from calling several times a day!!! Oldest DD had ankle surgery on Thursday and is doing ok. The pain pump wasn't working, so she finally called the nurse today to find out why. It's working now so maybe she can get some rest. We've had the boys since Wednesday so she'd be able to rest without their bickering (yes, they do that a lot LOL). Buster Brown and Missy are
  11. Good Morning All!! I had to do the pics of the puppy at work this morning. Couldn't get it to open at home. But here's the littlest GS with him. We are so proud of him--no fear of this puppy and he's not afraid of Missy anymore. Going to be a busy day but wanted to share the pics of our new furbaby. Everyone have a great Tuesday!!
  12. Hi All!! Just one more day (if we can both survive until then). The minister that got hurt is not the new one but the lady pastor that is leaving. I'm so sad that she's leaving and that she is hurt. The drs think that there will be no surgery and that the tendon will repair itself. Today wasn't a good day--too much drama. Won't bore you with the details computer drama but I'm so glad that the new boss will be there on Thursday. Can't get the pics of Buster Brown to download from my email. So I'll try to figure something else out tomorrow. I'm so tired now (after all the computer
  13. Good Evening all--glad it's Wednesday! I'm beginning to really dislike the short week--too much to do and not enough time to do it. Buster Brown is so cute--his personality is so different from Missy's. He tries so hard to get her to play, but she has begun to play a little bit with him. We love watching him play and run. Typical puppy. Missy's still mad at us and leaves us "presents" around the house still. Hopefully that will stop soon. Work this week is hectic. One pastor has barely started to pack (he's got a room full of books) and he's only emptied one shelf. The other o
  14. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!! Thank you to those that have had a family member serve in the Armed Forces. We got a new furbaby. He's a full brother to Missy (same mom and dad). The lady we got Missy from is getting ready to move back to the New England area and she couldn't take any of these new puppies with her. She kept talking with DD and finally convinced her to take the pup. His name is Buster Brown (he is totally different than Missy). I haven't transferred my pics to the computer so I can't post it yet but I will try to later today. He's so cute and fuzzy!! But Missy isn't h
  15. Linda - WOW!! What a great picture! You have an awesome talent!! Cindy - Glad that you are able to take the meds and hopefully that will keep the nasty stuff away from you. Joanne - hope you had a good evening! For those wanting to try a c2c, give it a try--it's a quick pattern. I was surprised at how fast it went. A busy day today - school will be over this Friday for both GS. I'll be so glad not to drive the little one to school every day. Sad thing is he will have to do Kindergarten over again. He's ok with "staying in the class again" - not using the term holding him
  16. Hi all - again I've been MIA for a time. Our computer was still having problems (well really the internet connection) but I think it's fixed now. I made a corner to corner (c2c) afghan for DD's coworker, did it in one week. Good thing it's done cause the little one came early. I did it in red, white, and black--her theme was Mickey Mouse. Hadn't ever done a c2c but it was fast and looks good. I will probably make more of them. Still haven't finished my shrug that I started about a month ago but hopefully I'll get it done this weekend. Probably won't have the boys as the little one is
  17. Hi all, my internet is "sort of" working. It's almost as slow as before. Not sure what we will do as the last tech said they couldn't improve the speed. So I may end up calling again and see what they tell us this time. There is also this horrible hum on the phone line (supposedly from a street light). So we'll talk and decide. I hate to give up our AT&T because it's at a retiree rate. Haven't read much yet. It's so slow to load, I just read this page. Joanne - WOW what a deal on the yarn!!! Hope you enjoy it. Marlene - hope you're having a good weekend. The "doggie ca
  18. Hi ladies - just a quick hello!! I guess the computer problem at home isn't fixed yet. It's now back to what it was earlier. I guess I'll have to call again Still not caught up on the posts. But you all are in my prayers. Yesterday was Missy Snuggles (our puppy) birthday!! DD bought her a birthday cake from the Barking Dog Bakery (never knew something like that existed). She took a video of her eating it, really cute. I'll try to post a pic of it (if I can get my home computer back up and running). No boys this weekend--they are going camping (it's gonna be almost 100 this
  19. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Judy - beautiful shawl!! Our internet stopped working the next day after it was repaired. They finally sent someone out yesterday (yes on Easter) and he thought he found the problem. But it couldn't be fixed until today. So, here I am, the internet is working fast (like it's supposed to). Also, we got new phones and couldn't get anything to download, but now we're able to do that as well. Technology's a wonderful thing--when it works LOL. I hope all of you are doing well. I'll try to catch up later tonight or tomorrow. It's been a very l
  20. The internet problem is solved!!! We needed a new modem--and since DH is retired from AT&T, it should be free--yea!!! Mary - looking forward to seeing your store. I'm sure I missed what the link is so could you let me know how to find you there? Cindy - Enjoy your birthday party tomorrow!! Joanne - hope you're feeling better and rested now!! Haven't had the time to catch up but I will. Update on my work - They are moving both pastors and I will get 1 new boss. I've heard he's easy to work with and a great pastor. I'm looking forward to meeting him and working with
  21. Hi All - Our internet is down at home since Saturday night They are coming tonight to fix it (hopefully). Between the high winds and the rain we had on Sunday, I think that's the problem. I'm on my work computer just to check in and say hi. I finished a prayer shawl for a friend that attends the church where I work. Their son has cancer and is now on hospice. He's an adult but it's so hard to know your son doesn't have much longer. So prayers for the family would be appreciated. Well I'd better get to work and maybe tonight I'll be able to catch up and see what all has been goin
  22. Well, I've been MIA for a while. Between the stress at work and my thyroid being messed up, I'm so tired by the end of the day I have no energy to either crochet or get on here for a few minutes. The thyroid was too high (which means I'm not getting enough meds, so the dr upped my dose) but it takes a while for things to change. I go back the last week of April and be retested I was hoping yesterday would be the big day but it was changed to this Thursday. Everyone has been busy!!! I can't even remember everything! But I'm sure glad I came in and read tonight. Maybe tomorrow ni
  23. Good Evening!! I'd planned to be on earlier this week. We had the boys Wednesday night and then oldest one woke up with his throat hurting. DD took him to the dr and he's got strep. So we kept little one Thursday so hopefully he won't get it. He was so upset, he wanted his Bubba and he cried a long time at day care. I finally got him to stop with the promise of doing some special things. Work was horribly stressful. Didn't get much done on Friday except the bulletins--too much else was going on. Never a dull moment. Look like all of you have been busy. Joanne - glad the PT is
  24. Linda - glad you're able to find ways to save on your move! And get lots of help. Cindy - hope you can relax today. Joanne - tell Robbie a late Happy birthday!! I'm sure it was a fun day for all. Holly - Hope you're enjoying your spring break. Marlene - sounds like you've been busy. My week was another horrible week. I'm so very tired of drama and people resisting change. And they'd better get ready for more is coming in the next month. I'm still looking for another job but nothing has come up yet that will pay enough. Littlest GS went to the dr on Wednesday and they
  25. Hi All - been a while since I've been here. Between the crazy weather and watching the boys again, I've been busy. Mary - beautiful afghan!! I'm sure it will be well loved! Joanne - hope you've had a good weekend! I think maybe spring is here (knock on wood). No snow is in the forecast for the next week--but with a late Easter there is always a possibility of more ice/snow. We have the boys this weekend. Little one's tummy is better. I've only had to give him 1 Tums this weekend. so maybe he's over whatever it was he had. Work has been stressful again, maybe I should say st
