  • https://www.amazon.com/photos/shared/1TOlyvDwR0ahJJS4r4h1Uw.4C6DXqVMQnNUIZQx0bge-H Athena was dealing with a cold, she gurgled, "thank you for the stickers grandma".💖 Rebecca
  • Today is my middle son, a veteran, 28th birthday. He got my cookies and is enjoying them. I also put some nice tea k-pods in the box too, so he could have tea instead of coffee. Its hard to know what to buy that kid year after year! They are particular, and stuff they like, if they want it, they buy it. Plus there's the…
  • Yes its a fine dance us renters do, keeping the peace like Lisa said. It was nice to see the owner, as it was him we meet when we signed paperwork, and did the walk thru with. Now this is the owner of the rental management company, not the owner of the house. The owners are elderly, and live on the east coast. My…
  • Mary (((((hugs)))) to you and your family.💖😢🙏
  • The memory list set off me missing my youngest sailor. Just cried and cried for a good hour, but settled down. Processing the absence of him is always ongoing. Knowing he is somewhere overseas living his life is ok, but brings no consolation. I actually get mad at the thought. This isn't how I wanted to feel about my…
  • Barbara, the Southern Oregon Coastie AHMOD, I am not sure our management office would be keen to that. Our heater seems to be cycling on and off ok, which we're grateful. The toilet issue, while isn't an emergency, its annoying. Being that we're paying month to month, if we become more trouble then we're worth, who's to…
  • 7. Memory. When I took my youngest to "meet" my mom at the mortuary in March of 1999. He started crying in his carrier, he was 4 months old. It was a cry I had never heard before, he had no tears, so I said aloud, "well Mom this is my son Owain, you and him just talk". His cry echoed throughout the mortuary and my Mom…
  • Oh my, that's an instant 5,000 more people out and about in Hobart!💖👍🏻⚓. A nice tourist boom. Hopefully they'll be hospitable, with no troubles. They usually do some humanitarian thing at each port if they can. Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • Finally got the Nephrologist appointment for my kidney stones. Not until December 27th! The whole month of November wasted with waiting for them to receive the authorization and fax from records clinic. No one was calling anyone, I had to do all the leg work! Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • So our electric heater is still not working correctly. Husband woke up to 55' downstairs! Put another call in.🙄🙃 Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • Welcome Deborah from Seattle soon to be Montana! My eldest sister used to live in Great Falls Montana. I took an Amtrak from Portland Oregon back in 2020 to visit. So much sky!!! I felt a wee bit overcome with the wide sense of space. Husband and I moved from Hammond Oregon (by Astoria on the coast) up to Whidbey Island…
  • Recd box from eldest sailor and he bought a bunch of Japanese momentos. I wrapped up a kimono and matching umbrella for Athena, a tea set and door plaque for us, and other little things.💖. He's so thoughtful.💖 Woke up to our electric heater not cycling on. So the owner of the management company comes by for a look see. He…
  • Oh today was turkey, tomato, cheese and lettuce sandwich of two slices of roasted artisan whole wheat bread. I love to toast the bread under the broiler, then melt the cheese on one slice. That's what I press the tomato into. Then I mixed my bag lettuce pieces with fat free dressing so its flavorful. Fat free mayo, sweet…
  • Tracy, when I go under, I will think upon your grandfather.💖👍🏻 Rebecca Whidbey Ws
  • The mortuary train, sounds kinda creepy. "Hey George, hand me the #3 scalpel, oh hey Mr. Train...." Have you ever seen people use LEGO in corner parts of a wall? Structurally you open up the wall and build hangers, or whatever, and the outside is like a LEGO door. I can see my eldest son doing that if ever we get a house…
  • 1. Smell - rain before the downpour 2. Technology - using my tablet to text with my sons 3. Colour - different tones of grey 4. Food - to saute' onions, mushrooms and a pat of butter 5. Sound -our nightly owls hooting go each other 6. Nature - sun thru the trees, waves crashing, storms rolling thru Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • Heehee Michele! My middle son was telling me he wants to have trains go about his house on shelves that encircle the bedrooms.😜😁 So my ramen was without spinach, the bag had decided to go slimy in one full swoop. But hey its perfect anyways! Rebecca Ramen Queen on Whidbey WA
  • Pretty dramatic wind storm last night on the island! Lee is out picking up sticks, (and singing the song too🙃😂). We lost power most of the night, but it came on at about 5am. This mornings breakfast is 1/2 of an oatmeal cookie (I made them kinda huge), and a small blueberry muffin. For lunch I am making ramen noodles, and…
  • Mailed all the boxes today. We are $46 poorer, but its nice to get them sent. Middle son will get his oatmeal cookies a bit earlier than his birthday, but I told him the moment he gets his box that it can officially be his birthday.👍🏻 I packed his cookies in my vintage flowered tin. They fit perfectly, and put a note…
  • Your flowers and garden are just stunning! Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • Awe, slept so good on our new sheets! Woke up at 6:30 am, quite early for me. Lee kept coaxing me to go to the gym with him. I kind of like the separation time. Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • I am so happy for you! Take in your energy with a gracious heart. I go to sleep at night, noticing no pain whatsoever and it is amazing. I know I am in between "episodes" but I have pain meds if it does occur. Nice to know I do not have to endure the spasms again. Plus I have my powder laxative to off set the pain meds so…
  • Athena cuteness time! They had a girlfriend visiting during Halloween, so she had to have a shirt too. She attended school with daughter inlaw. Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • Lisa, yay you sound like you are feeling better. I would say your energy kicked in like the Ever ready bunny.💖 I am so callous regarding plants. Live or die, but if you look wilty, out you go. I tend to kill plants with kindness, ie over watering or over pruning. Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • Well new 600 count sheets bought, with nice thick elastic all way round the fitted sheet! They are washed and on the bed.👍🏻 And I will trim my toenails before bed tonight, lol! My toe nails are so small that when I trim my baby toe, there's not even anything to paint, (if ever I did ho get them painted)! Now my fingernails…
  • Hi friends! Well my appointment yesterday with the gallbladder surgeon went well. I was explained the procedure, signed some forms, he looked at my abdomen and the nurse and I figured out the date of 29th of this month. Afterwards Lee took me to a nice pizza place in Coupeville. I loaded up on the salad part, and had 2…
  • Hugs Katla, I have heard that😄! Poor gallbladder gets a bad wrap, and is never missed, unlike other organs. Lee had his out along with his offending old liver. I guess they go together. Hugs to you in all you're going thru. May I say you are quite the acclimater! Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • Thanks Barbie! This thread is invaluable, for its motivational, and positive support on a day to day basis. I consider you all great friends of mine! Goals for November -to get care packages packed and sent the first week. -to get my gallbladder removed! -to continue to eat many items fat free or low fat. Personally I…
  • My favorite costume was when I wore my dads Navy uniform in high school. My friend wore a Santa suit. So we would knock on doors and I would say "Happy Halloween sir", (or ma'am), and salute, then my friend would say "Merry Christmas"! We also went to a manufactured home park, so we averaged 2 homes every 5 min. We scored!…
  • I once made homemade, using egg noodles and made my own beef broth with Better Than Bouillon, Lee said he liked the Hamburger Helper mix better! I never add sour cream to the whole mixture, just to my serving. I too find it too salty. I haven't had it in about a year, because the odds of me having sour cream and corn on…
