OH scary Maxine. Glad that it wasn't close to you and that there wasn't any major damage or injuries. I'm so anxious for my DD all the time when they have quakes in CA. I hope it calms down there soon.

Good Morning Addicted Friends!

How is everyone today?

Maxine: how scary to have earthquakes on your island! Even if you haven't felt them where you live, it must be unnerving. Let's hope that everything settles and life can get back to normal.
Did you get things resolved with DH's eye doctor appointments? I certainly hope so. Wishing you peace and calm, my friend!

Maggie: so glad to hear that Corey is adjusting and accepting you! How sweet! And Hooray for getting your garage organized and things ready to depart. Must be a great feeling!

Just waking up here, slept until 8 AM highly unusual for me. It sure felt good! Today I want to finish off one card and then pack up some things and leave for my friend's house to house sit. It's only a few miles from our house so it's not like I have to pack loads, I can come & go between the two homes easily enough.

Peace everyone!

Good morning Stamp Addicts.

Darlene have a fun time house sitting.

Today is the day that Corey is supposed to get his patch off, but he's not so keen on letting me get too close to him. I tried to entice him with wet food, but he just wouldn't let me touch him today. I really don't have time this morning to wait around for him, so we'll take care of that tonight when I get home. I let Maggie Mae and Casper in to say good morning to him. Corey is so anxious to get out and play with the rest of the kids.

Maggie, you're such an admirable fur mama! Those kitties are blessed to have you

We're off to the dr in a bit - poor dd16 was healing nicely and then went backwards on Saturday with the swelling/pain ... hopefully today will be a great check up and we'll get good news all around. She's so miserable.

For you all .......

Another quick check-in here..........I'm between the waves of company. Got rid of the first two batches today, washed all the sheets/towels/clothes, took a shower and put on my p.j.'s! I'm ready for bed and exhausted - and it's only 3:30 p.m.!!!!! LOL! What a deal all that was! I can't even begin to tell you how crazy everything went. We had a big BBQ on Saturday night and right in the middle of it, they all decided they wanted homemade ice cream. O - K ----- no problem! I'm trying to get everything situated with the food for the meal and had to stop and whip up the stuff for ice cream.......we had yummy cherry vanilla ice cream.........with NO VANILLA!!!!! I completely forgot to add it! LOL! That was just one of the episodes that happened........anyway, they're all gone - and left fleas behind! Even though Rambo takes a flea and heartguard pill every month, I had to make a dashing trip to the vet for him in regard to all that while ago. Got the whole house sprayed and Jim is working on the yard now. Geeze!!!!!!!!!!!!! The two dogs absolutely hated each other! They had to keep theirs caged the entire time and he and Rambo took turns going into the back yard!

I'll try to catch up some during this week if I have a chance!

Oh Lynn, I'm sorry your company wore you out and now you have the next wave. Take care of yourself, my dear! BTW, I'll be mailing your card tomorrow.

Kelly, I'm thinking the dentist probably was sorry your DD didn't have a concert for him today.

Maggie, I'm hoping Corey was more cooperative this evening!

Kelly, this is so sweet - back to you. You and Jeanette always have the cutest pictures to share with us.

I sure hope things went good at the dentist today and DD is feeling better. Not fun to have pain in the mouth.

So glad that DD's checkup was good. I hope she continues to improve. LOL! Guess she's all sung out.

Enjoy your time at the pool - lucky lady.

Yikes! Fleas!!!!!!!! Ugh. I had an infestation a couple of years ago when I brought one of the outside cats inside in a trap and put it in the bathtub overnight before I took it to SNAP to get fixed. In just that little bit of time, I got fleas in my house and I had to spray all around the house and get some Advantage for my kitties. We finally got rid of them off the kitties and out of the house. Thank goodness! They are terrible.

Sounds like you did have a crazy, stressful time! I hope Rambo recovers and you! Get some rest! LOL! Too funny that you forgot to add the vanilla. Did anyone notice?

Thanks Jeanette, but unfortunately he wasn't very cooperative at all but I was able to take advantage of him and got that patch off. All evening I was in my bedroom sitting on the floor with some yummy food and trying to coax him out from under the bed and over to get some goodies. He'd get close and as soon as my hand started to reach out toward him, he'd take off under the bed. I didn't give in though and let him have anything to eat. I went in and out a couple times, but no luck. Then once I went in and for some reason I was inspired to look in the bathroom and there he was laying in the bathtub. I thought he had done that before because a couple times the bathmat was in the tub. I quick closed the door and went and got the bowl of food and the alcohol swab. Went back in and was able to grab him and put him up on the commode. He was not happy. But I was able to get the patch off of him and afterwards he hissed and growled at me. Not happy at all. I let him back out and he went under the bed. I put his food back down for him and I'm sure it's gone. I also put one of his pain pills in with the food in a pill pocket, so hopefully he'll eat that and have a restful night's sleep. I'm planning to let him come out in the next day or two, probably Wednesday. A GF and I are planning on going to the movies tomorrow night and I want to be home when he comes out.

Poor little guy... he's had so much stress lately. It's no wonder he doesn't want to cooperate. I know you will win him over, though.

Good morning Stamp Addicts.

Well, I went ahead and did it. Let Corey come out into the rest of the house. It just seemed the right thing to do this morning. He is wandering around the house with Casper keeping close eye on him. Maggie Mae and Paisley are being very aloof.

Morning Fellow Addicts!

Maxine: I haven't heard of any more earthquakes down your way, are things calm?

Maggie: glad to hear the news about little Corey! You really know your babies. Hats off to you.

Kelly: Glad to hear that all is well with DD and the dentist! Hopefully everything is on the mend now.

Lynn: FLEAS ARE THE WORST!!! Yuk!!! An Innkeeper should never have to deal with fleas after guests and their pets leave. My sympathies! (Want to come stay with me at the HUGE house on the lake for the rest of the week??)

Jeanette: such an adorable treat you posted on Monday! Thank you.

I'm back at my office today and tomorrow. Internet is too unreliable at the house where I'm sitting...have to get some work done these 2 days, then Thurs & Fri can be either light days or days off for me. Hoping that the sun comes back out then Great days to be at the lake house!

Waving to everyone!

Morning all

All is well here, but the Cooks Straight, Wellington and top of the South Island are still rocking - smaller quakes but still frequent.... but still a few sharp ones in there - like 4.1 on Richter scale this morning (6:25 a.m.)

Lynn, how horrible to have fleas left . We had one house that had fleas hatch every summer - I even had it commercially sprayed and they still came back - and I suffered an allergic reaction for three next three months, so it was a once only experience!

Happy stamping all - I have been gradually getting through the roses.....

Maxine, glad that you guys are okay and not affected by the rocking and rolling!

I'm off to the movies this evening with a GF to see Unfinished Song. Sounded good to both of us and we haven't been out together in quite awhile.

I haven't attended to my roses yet. Maybe this weekend.

Default Hello

Yikes- I feel like I have been gone forever- so much to catch up on!

Maxine- Did you get hubby's eye appt straightened out? Does the med injection help right away or is it a gradual improvement? I will keep you in prayers- hope it gets resolved quickly! I have not heard of the earthquakes close by to you- I hope there is not too much damage and no injuries.

Darlene- it sounds hot hot hot there! We are having a cool down- hope it makes its way through there. Glad you have a pieceful retrieve from the weather and from the tornado.. hehehe I think I relate to that description….. How long will your DD be there with you??? I pray for you to have patience and that her new job starts quickly and keeps her busy !

Jeanette- love your Friday picture from last week- hehehe. I have no idea how to put those up, but appreciate the smile you put on my ace.

Maggie- glad Corey seems to be adjusting to the indoors and hope he warms up to you soon. Great that you are organizing- that is such a great feeling! Oh we went to Wicked in Chicago- cannot wait to see what you think of it.

Kelley- you are so busy- I hope your daughter is OK- my youngest had some swelling and took 3 weeks to heal. She bit the side of her mouth and really had a big ulcer in her mouth..... Oh the pool sounds so refreshing..!

Lynn……where did all of those people sleep??? We will have two dogs here in a couple of days- hope we do not have to keep one of the dogs locked up? Fleas….well, we found them on Peanut. I am allergic to their bite- I do not think we are infested in here- but not sure..... We took the dog to the vet and have a med they put on between his shoulder once a month. I have been vacuuming the dog- can you imagine how itchy that would be???

Waving hello to everyone! We have company coming in on Thursday, so I may not be around too much this weekend, we'll see!

Shelly

Well done Kelly - it pays to comment !!

The eye saga continues - we got an appointment form giving Kelson an appointment on the 29th August . I rang and explained again why we could not keep it and we are now waiting to hear back from the hospital - WHY DON"T PEOPLE LISTEN!!! The Avastin works slowly, and we really thought things were under control after the last visit.... oh the joys.

I had to make a couple of sympathy cards today - one for a friend of mine who's son died recently, and one for DD and SIL - they heard today that a friend of theirs, who lives here, had been widowed in a forestry accident last week........ that was a hard one.

I had been past the church where the funeral was to be held this morning and 15 minutes before it was due to start all the parking at the church, the church across the road from it, and all around the streets was full - including at least 6 logging trucks. He left a young family too

We are well away from the earthquakes - and they are gradually diminishing, but still pretty frequent according to the Geonet site

Maggie young Corey is a real credit to you!

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!

Maxine, I am so sorry to hear of the losses in your family, friendships, and community. Hugs!

Maggie, how did things go with Corey? Was he okay through the night?

Good Morning, all! It's another sunny-looking day here - yay for sunshine!

Shelly, thanks for sharing about your dd and her healing from her wisdom teeth ~ 3 weeks and an ulcer! Ouch! I see her trying to eat and still in pain but we were told a month! After that, you have to worry, lol. School starts in 3 weeks so I hope we don't wait that long

Thank you for the congrats on KK - I won an adorable Forest Animals stamp set! I saw that on Saturday, Sunday - I think .. I was shocked to win. I love KK stamps!!

Lynn, fleas - yuck! We have our dogs on Comfortix as we just can't have fleas/ticks with our daughter's allergies - it's the BEST! Even if they come in contact with other infested animals, they won't pick them up. I can't imagine bringing a flea infested dog to a friend's home! Yikes!

Maxine, I hope the land has stopped movin' and shakin! My friend is vacationing in Sri Lanka and posted pics or Sigiriya, I think, smoking and blowing lots of cloud smoke. Be safe I'm sorry your husband is still having eye issues and hope they can listen to you and your needs and he's on the mend very, very soon!

Hugs to everyone!

ummmm... Kelly... I think that stamp set you just would fit perfectly with the theme of the new forest swap, should you be so inclined to join.

Sorry your DD is still in such pain. I remember when my two had their wisdom teeth out, it was a while before they felt good.... but she should be better before school starts, I would think.

The Avastin works slowly, and we really thought things were under control after the last visit.... oh the joys.

I had to make a couple of sympathy cards today - one for a friend of mine who's son died recently, and one for DD and SIL - they heard today that a friend of theirs, who lives here, had been widowed in a forestry accident last week........ that was a hard one.

I had been past the church where the funeral was to be held this morning and 15 minutes before it was due to start all the parking at the church, the church across the road from it, and all around the streets was full - including at least 6 logging trucks. He left a young family too

We are well away from the earthquakes - and they are gradually diminishing, but still pretty frequent according to the Geonet site

Maggie young Corey is a real credit to you!
So sorry that you're having so much frustration with DH's appointment. I sure hope that you hear something positive soon. Sorry also about the untimely deaths. It's never easy, but so much harder when they are young.

Corey is just a sweetheart as well as the other kitties inside. They do bring me much joy and happiness so I really feel like I"m the lucky one.

Everyone was so good last night. I took Paisley in my bedroom with me last night. I think she was happy to be back in her regular place. The other 3 were fine out here. I didn't hear any noise out of them. I even was able to slightly touch Corey today, so that's progress. Baby steps.

Thanks, I know it takes time. Her sister was all healed up in a few days, she's taking much longer but of course, being so allergic, we have to be extra careful!

And that is true about the theme! Although I should probably wait until I actually have them in hand, safe and delivered, hee hee!!

Kelly- your daughter goes to school early! Hope she heals well! Glad you won another fun prize- blogging is so fun sometimes!

Our 12 yr old dog got fleas this year, and we did not have a clue what they were! I thought he had dirt on him... yuck- I freaked when we took him to the vet (for his ear) and they told us he has fleas..... I am allergic to fleas too. We have absolutely NO CLUE where he was exposed!

Maxine- sometimes Dr offices are so frustrating- i will call for records and they will tell me they were faxed....duh...I would not be calling if I had received them.....! Well, we got a confirmation that the fax went through.... whatever- I need the records, can you please refax them.....! So frustrating- I would not call if I had received them! Anyway- sorry for that rant- I hope you get the right person and they get you an earlier appt. If you talk to a receptionist, tell her you need to speak with the Dr's nurse or assistant- if you are not already speaking with her...sometimes they can help you out better.....

Maggie- glad the cat situation is good- very cool!

Daughter will be home tomorrow PM and son in the wee hours of the AM- please pray for safe travels from Co. to Illinois!

Waving hello to everyone : )

Shelly

Hi Shelly and all

Got an new appointment letter today and they have fitted DH in on the Wednesday August 14th - we usually go to the Thursday (Avastin) clinic, so obviously they have fitted us into another clinic just so he can be seen! Thanks for all your prayers and encouragement.

They are all so funny. All of them sitting outside the hallway door when I got up this morning. Poor Paisley couldn't get through the crowd.

He was even better this morning and let me pet him again without running away.

Don't want any of that cold, wet, white stuff over here. I moved away from that.

Maxine, so glad that they finally listened to you and your DH has an appointment that will work out for you. I hope it all goes well.

Shelly, safe travels for DD and DS. Are they just home for a visit?

Went out to dinner last night with the Single Chicks from church. It was a really nice time. There were 9 of us this month. We went to Genghis Grill where you pick out your own ingredients that you want in your bowl and then give it over to the cooks and they cook it up for you, so every meal is unique with what people choose. Oh, I was bad. I had dessert. It was called Tuxedo Bomb! It was very delicious.
