    Snow nearly gone. DD came home early on Thursday with kidney stone pain. We ended up in the ED that evening. She is still fighting the pain but has better meds from the hospital so made it to work on Friday and slept a lot yesterday. Laying low yet today. Hope it passes soon. I have been doing chair yoga on Fridays since the first of the year and it is kicking my butt. It is much more difficult than I thought it would be and I have ended up with muscle cramps the last two Friday evenings, but I am going to persist and know that it will get better and I will benefit in the long run.

    Rebecca - I am with Barbie. Consider it a challenge and keep writing.

    Carol and Karen - Sorry about the fur babies. I know how they are indeed family. We have a horse who is almost 28 years old and hard to keep weight on. It will be a hard day when we have to say goodbye to her. DD has owned her since she was 2.

    Lisa - cute pictures.

    Katla - Enjoy the riding lesson!

    Everyone take care, Sue in WA

    Lovely to see your photos Lisa. I don't know how I missed it. Nothing like a newborn. <3
    Glad you got home safely. :)

    My DDIL is planning her 40th in March. She messaged us this evening. It's a cream tea at the Grand Hotel (that I posted pics of a couple of days ago) followed by a trip up the i360. Sounds fun. Let's hope the weather is good for a great view from the top. B) Don't know how many will be coming.

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx

    Chili-
    220 can of turkey chili or another brand that’s less or equal
    2 cans 110cal bush’s pinto beans
    1 can salt free corn 60cal
    Some cheese 🧀 1 serving or less stir it 72-110 cal melted real good for flavor
    0 cal lemon juice

    I eat off of it for days Hubby too. So not sure 🤔 the final calorie still haven’t mastered the add it in feature but I record it as 440cal chicken chili. By the last bowl I’m tired of chili but got my money’s worth out of it.

    Rebecca: That writing is HARD to read. I have no advice. :noway: Barbie has some good ideas. :star:

    Sue in WA: I had a good riding lesson today, and lectures from my teacher about getting up to the stable more often. :embarassed:

    I'm planning to get something hot to drink and sit in front of the fireplace reading a book I checked out from the library.

    Rebecca it did look at one point she was talking about getting a lot of letters having to write but the words in between can’t read so don’t know if she’s upset about it,happy,overwhelmed, looking forward to,etc. Good luck.
    Another part she mentions Well went to the Doctor -but that was the only words I made out lol. Write on the letter what you think the words are make a good try at it. If you find anyone who can read it ask them occasionally!

    Rebecca - I so agree about how it’s nice to think of a passed parent and think of the warm fuzzies. My Dad has been gone 7 years this past December, I get those feeling more than I used to. I hope someday I no longer remember what he looked like in his last week or so.

    Hugs to you on your Mom’s birthday.

    Rebecca- Daughter said one part looks like her telling you about her other pen pals! We may be getting this decoded bit by bit now. She’s not spacing between many words it’s large curly loops ➿. At the end something about the month of March...probably what she’ll be doing then.

    Amber Tx

    Hope this helps even a little lol. Looks like a rambling letter so she might be misspelling too keep that in mind when guessing

    Hubby suggested asking if she can print her letters say with bifocals (liar pants on fire moment) you can’t make out the cursive without help from family you rather keep the letters private for girl chats end with big hugs your happy to have you own pal!

    Rebecca I have this problem with my DSIL when she writes. I just decifer what I can and reply to that and then add what is going on with me and our family. I know sometimes when I write in cursive I am not the easiset to understand. Your right I notice my writing does improve when I wear my reading glasses and I take my time when I write.

    If you enjoy getting her letters I would figure out a way that works for you.

    Well, it's blurry and would be easier to read if it were clear, but ...

    Dear Rebecca,

    It was good to get your letter ...
    ... got your letter answered ...
    ... I've got a letter ...
    ... answer and get written ... now ...
    tomorrow. So person gets it ...
    I've got a lot of ... letters ...
    what to do. But one letter at a time.


    That's a start! :)

    Did the You Can Do Abs DVD. The plan for tomorrow is to take the extremepump class

    SuziQ – We have a condo in Titusville. It’s north of you, but the prices aren’t as high. There are a lot of retired/elderly folks there. When MIL was alive, she lived at the condo. She was on the third floor, but there is an elevator. People check on each other a lot and really help out. If you’d like to stay in FL, that seems a good area.

    Vince is working on the taxes which translates into “leave him alone”

    Camping – we did tent camping when the kids were little. Vince and the kids had to get a cot to put their sleeping bags on, I didn’t have a problem sleeping on the ground. To me, it was fun. Then again, we weren’t far from home so if I forgot something (like a can opener), I can run home for it

    Cold here (at least for NC) – 51 with a low of 22. Of course it’s getting cold – it seems to always get cold once the Girl Scouts start selling their cookies…. OK..you gals in Canada can stop laughing now!

    Amber – just be careful – pickles can have a lot of salt in them

    Samad (did I spell that right?) – welcome

    Rebecca – regarding your pen pal with the writing, I’d just continue as you have been doing. You know, you might want to post her next letter to you on here and maybe we can help you decipher it. Then you can write back.

    She writes how she talks I believe. So she'll write, " writing my own pals and that". So the phrase "and that" seems to end most sentences.👍

    Thanks! It is a good start! I fear her life is writing letters about writing letters. So I will continue to pick some points in her letters I can decipher and give her little glimpses of Whidbey island.👍
