    Went for my run. Found it much harder today. My back was aching. But I got round. :) Lovely weather. It's going to be busy over the weekend. We will keep away from the seafront.
    The cleaner is here, so I am hiding in the bedroom.

    Friday night is wine night. We are having sea bass, so DH has chosen a Picpoul.

    Going to text the floor sanding guys to make an appointment for an estimate.

    LOVING your sliding door moments. More please! :D

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx

    Faith still sleeping..she is recouping from her trip up to the lake house .
    Will do what i need to do today.. we will be getting a tropical stork starting this afternoon.. when i get home will try and get my plants under the stairs so they dont get swamped with water...
    Lisa- nothing gets people up quicker than hearing a cat or dog yakking...
    Hopefully poor Egg is feeling better now..
    Tracey-sort of in a nutshell its that God is taking care of me and knows what I love ,do your best and let God do the rest...
    So we shall see.. I have faith he will send me where I need to be...

    I so agree with you about the cat/dog yakking sound that gets you moving fast. With a dog and seven indoor cats, we hear it often- one of them is always coughing up a fur ball.
    We did not plan on having that many cats but they seem to find us and we keep them- all are formerly feral kitties. All are fixed and so is the only outside one still around(and a few others that we also took in to get fixed)

    Tracey: Some people treat seniors in a care facility as though they are children. In cases where Alzheimers has robbed them of their memories or cognitive ability, it may be a necessity. My grandmother was an example. She habitually took sleeping pills and booze, and wrecked her own brain. My mom was a different story. She was not mentally impaired, but she ruined her lungs by chain smoking cigarettes, one after another. We moved her to a senior facility near us and she loved the social life there. I could visit her every day. Lung damage from smoking eventually put her in the hospital. I hope to stay out of those situations as I age. :flowerforyou:

    Annie: I haven’t been to the stable in weeks. I want to go as soon as I can. I’ve been sequestered at home too long. The stable offers exercise, fun & plenty of social distancing. :star:

    Barbara: I think the long time in the doctor’s waiting room was the result of them closing their practice for a long while due to the Covid situation. They had a back-log of patients & had to completely sterilize everything between patients. I didn’t mind waiting for a germ-free surgical room. :noway:

    Renewing1: Welcome to a great group of supportive women. Some of us are in the losing weight process and others are working on maintaining. Stop in often for encouragement, support, & to get to know people. :flowerforyou:

    It was so nice when the telemarketers were not calling for the first three months of Covid. Now they are back.
    Just in the last ten minutes I got two- First one I answered because caller ID says Kaiser Permanente. Of course I will pick that up- Husband had his Covid test done on Tues. and they said if it is positive they will call you. It was a robot saying we were over charged by a third party electrical company and to press 1 to get a rebate.
    Second call did not answer- sorry but not answering a call from Mr. Mickey Hickey.

    DH got an email to say his mobile phone company couldn't take his fee (direct debit). I'm sure it's a scam. Please be careful everyone. I had to remind him. :#

    Did spinning today. The plan for tomorrow is to do an Ellen Barrett Fat Burning Fusion DVD. This is yoga and pilates.

    Barbara – I’m sorry the drops didn’t work for Joe. Sure hope the specialist can help him. Be sure to keep us informed.

    Jess just told us that she’s leaving for VA tomorrow after work since they’re leaving for Idaho early the next day. I admit that I’m worried about her flying.

    I’ve only asked her weeks ago to go thru those boxes. Of course, it still isn’t done. We were thinking she was leaving next week. Vince still needs to do her taxes. Wouldn’t surprise me if what I want gets put off. Par for the course. Vince said a few days ago that he’d talk to her about going thru the boxes, maybe she’ll listen to him. Of course, that hasn’t been done either. I only got a frame for a picture she gave us and put the picture in the frame. Was waiting for Vince to put it up, now I think just to get it done I’ll do it. I think it will make Jess feel good to know that we’re using something that she gave us. I’d also like to use this google thing that Colby gave us to say “ok, Google, add XXX to my shopping list” We shall see if that gets done. Maybe I should just do it. Vince wants to use it for playing music.

    But soup kitchen today! I put on my makeup and earrings. First need to stop at Lynette’s.

    <breathe deeply, breathe deeply> grrrr….Vince has this idea of how we should go thru those boxes of Jess’. He takes everything out of a box, stands there while Jess is working, comments on pictures, asking me what I would do if Jess says she doesn’t want something. Really, she’s doing work, let her work. Then…there is one box of things that evidently she wrapped up from her apt. but didn’t want in storage. Vince goes on and on to me about how there’s this box with things wrapped up and how I should have unwrapped everything, see, this is what you should do to get ready. Well, Jess was upset that he started to open it and why did I take the box out of the closet. I just said, “Jess, if you had looked at those boxes, you could have told me that it was things that you didn’t want in storage and all this could have been eliminated”. Guess who had to rewrap things? Had we done it my way, Jess would have just looked at the box and said that it was things that she didn’t want in storage. But, no….we have to do it Vince’s way. And then he doesn’t rewrap things, I do. <breathe, breathe> I know that (even Bryan has said this) Vince feels he’s always right. And if he isn’t…he’s calculating. Yes, there are many things that he’s smart about. But he’s not feelings savvy. Like I told him that it wouldn’t surprise me if Colby’s mother is thinking that he wants to return to the church because they’ve been going out there so much lately and this time they’re going out for 2 weeks. Speaking as a mother, I know that’s how I’d feel. Yes, it may not be logical, it’s emotional. Vince just said to me “no” I’m just letting it ride.

    Margaret – I am so happy for you and Drew

    Dlfk – you’re right. We’re now getting telemarketers and junk mail. It was SOOO nice not to get it We just got two calls that I never answered, from some city in NC that I’d never heard of

    Barbara, I’m so sorry about your hubby’s glaucoma. Mine has it, too. He keeps his under control with two different prescription eye drops, one twice a day and one once a day. He has had retina tears in the past that he had to have lasered. He has also had some other kind of laser treatment in the doctors office twice that was specifically to lower the pressure. His seems to be under control at the moment.
  • grandmalliegrandmallie Member Posts: 6,099 Member Member Posts: 6,099 Member
    Tom had drops for glaucoma and had the laser done,and no longer needs drops. The drops were very expensive..
    He is really worried about Homer ..he is 14 and has glaucoma and has had a good amount of teeth extracted. Tom is an excellent dog dad and would spend any amount on him to keep him in good shape...
    When I have Homer at my house he just hangs out and sleeps has a late lunch and treats and relaxes....he is an old doggy man..
    I am just waiting for my relief to show up both Sean and Jean are off and up to the Cottage..im hoping I can get home and get my plants out of harms way before the rain starts we are supposed to get parts of tropical storm Fay...here in Connecticut

    Taxes make me feel like an idiot! Mine shouldn't be hard but it's so unfamiliar and my memory is poor. And I'm too cheap to buy the software. I don't think it would work right anyway with my dad running another copy on the same network. Oh well one small task at a time and I will get through this.

    Is it Turbo Tax or something similar? If so, you can do more than one tax return with the software. I believe you can only e-file one return for free, but you could still do them with the software and either mail in the return or pay the fee to e-file an additional return.

    Pip: Oops. With the right incentives, I’ll bet Kirby forgives you. :wink: Wish Kirby a happy birthday from me. :smiley:

    Heather: It appears that phone scams are a worldwide phenomenon. I hang up on them after telling them to never call again. :grumble:

    Michele: Air travel has an inherent cabin air situation, I believe they recirculate the air and I don’t know whether or how they filter it. If you find out, I hope you’ll share the information. :flowerforyou:

    Barbara: DH had some lazer work done on his eyes, and was given prescription eye drops. He doesn’t recall just what the brand was. I would expect your DH’s eye doctor to write a prescription or supply some of the drops. :star:

    Allie: I hope the storm is not damaging where you live. :flowerforyou:


    DH hasn’t been feeling well the past few days. He says he is following doctor’s advice, but I don’t think he’s talked with her recently. I’m going to encourage him to contact her. When that doesn’t work, I’ll nag him about it.
