It was fine. I really love this little boy so I really didn't mind. I was just sad that he was so tired and cranky. My GF says that he does come home tired from day care. He couldn't help how he felt. The last time I sat with him, he was so good and we had a great time so I'm not thrwarted by how he did last night.

The half moon table/4 stools will be on the side by the house; the 36" waterfal feature will be across from the table. A swim out ledge is across the back (deep-6') end and a smaller L shaped ledge in the corner by the sun shelf with steps that run the width of that side. Mostly the pool will be used for relaxing & socializing but the side without the table can be used for laps. Also it will be deep enough for my water workouts.
Yea! Sounds fabulous. That's good that you're leaving space to do laps and workouts.

O M G! That's a lot of peanut butter! I love the brand I buy at HEB or Whole Foods called Better 'N Peanut Butter - only 2 gr. fat and very creamy and I can use it right out of the fridge. It doesn't get all hard and unspreadable.

I've also heard if you buy the kind of PB that has the oil on the top, that you don't have to stir that in, you can just pour it off and use it that way and it's less fat.

It is a catch 22. I know how you feel. I need to lose weight and have to exercise to really do it well, but can't exercise right now because of bad hips. I must say though that when I got on the scale this morning I was down another 1.6 pounds from yesterday!!!! Don't know if that will hold through the week, but I'm hoping at least most of it will.

We're using a new place for mediation lunch today. I sure hope they turn out to be a good place to order from. It's just a deli so they don't have some of the yummy things that the other place has, but this will be a good place for a change now and again. I don't think we'll order from them all the time because my boss likes his salmon salad and ahi Tuna. I ordered a wrap today. The marketing lady brought us some free samples the other day. I ate the cubed turkey salad and yesterday had the grilled chicken caesar salad, both of which were very yummy.

Soni...hope it all continues with the meds working...so sad that your doctor isn't getting the messages from you.

Maggie....sounds like you did well in the babysitting dept. Change is good for the lunch thing....hope it's as yummy as it sounded.

Dody...wow, that pool sounds dreamy!!! I'm sure y'all will have a great time with it when it's done. By the time the crew gets done with it...they will feel like family!!! LOL

Jack got in late last night. He was really tired after a full day in College Station..and then the long drive home. At least there wasn't any bad weather for him.

Hi Suzy. It's chilly here this morning too, but supposed to be a nice day and then the cold front comes through tonight, so maybe not such a good weekend.

BTW, Casper and Corey are coming to my house next Saturday morning. My GF is going to bring a crate with her for me to borrow. I'll keep them in there until I can determine if they will get along with Maggie Mae and Paisley. If they're compatible, then I'll probably keep them or maybe just one. I still haven't figured that out yet. There is a Cat Rescue No Kill shelter here, but I have to call and make an appointment if I want to have them take one or both of them, but I'd sure like to have a playmate for Maggie Mae. She really needs that.

I also called an electrician yesterday (friend of the couple I babysat for last night). He's going to come at 4 on Saturday to check out the house and give me an estimate for rewiring the house. Yikes! But the house was built in 1958, and I know that my ex did some electrical work on it when we had the house remodeled adding on the garage and putting in another fuse box. I was told by another electrician friend of mine years ago that it was not done up to code. We'll see what that turns out to cost me.

I sure hope that they get along well with Maggie Mae and Paisley. Hopefully, you'll be able to keep them both...since they are use to each other. When the other two don't want to have anything to do with each other....they'll have each other to play with. Then Maggie Mae and Paisley will see what they are missing and want to play too! That's why we started getting 2 at a time!!! We got Topsey and Turvey when we had Bright Eyes. Figured if she didn't want them around at the time...they had each other. Then when we lost her....we got Silver. They still had each other when Silver wasn't included. Then we lost Silver....and then Turvey the same year. Topsey was lonely for someone....but, cranky about everything. Oh wait...that hasn't changed! LOL That's why we got Sunny and Pie. They had each other when Topsey was in a snit....which is 97% of the time!!! So...when we adopt again...it will probably be another pair. But, at this rate...we aren't rushing!

thanks, I hope so too. Right now our yard has a good bit of a slope to it. Unuseable for chairs & the like. The retaining wall will give us a usable area...no 'yard' back there...just water & pavers. I am thinking about putting in a small veggie garden. We have a 5' set back from the property line & the wall. Wouldn't that be a great area for tomatoes & such? Since it will be 3' high, that mean way less bending.Score on that!

Maggie, good luck with the rewiring. It is always something, isn't it? If your house is that old I guess it would need an update.

wish I could find that here Maggie can you check the fiber count for me
I love Peanut butter but so far I can only have Jif fat free... it is good in flavor, a bit stiff but I enjoy it a little at a time

I usually buy the Low Sodium one. It has 2 gr. fat and only has 2gr. Fiber. I did a store locator search for your area and there are 2 stores in Peoria that sell it - Super Target on Big Hollow Road and Haddad's W. Peoria Market at 2407 West Rohmanm Ave West Peoria IL Maybe you could check it out sometime when you go into Peoria.

It's a normal 2 Tablespoon serving. Glad that it's someplace you know.

I am thinking about putting in a small veggie garden. We have a 5' set back from the property line & the wall. Wouldn't that be a great area for tomatoes & such? Since it will be 3' high, that mean way less bending.Score on that!
sounds great ~ I have been thinking about a small area too not much just a few things Dustin loves tomatoes so a grapr tpmato plant and a nice one for slicing or chopping for tacos... maybe green pepper and green beans and I would love to grow pumpkin and watermelon for the kids

got the errands done...then I came home and worked on a 'thank you' card. Wow....it took a little while. I'll have to show you how it turned out. I was using the new honeycomb embossing folder. It looks like a quilt now.

well, I need to finish membership cards...probably need to print off a few more to have on hand. I've already gotten the paper work copied for the qualification flights for our rocket teams. Now to see who shows up tomorrow. It's suppose to be rather chilly in the morning....about 31* for the low! So, I'll be dressing very warmly!!!!

Good morning Quackers.

I have a Thrive party to go to this morning with another lady from church. Thrive is the retail dealer for long term storage products. I haven't ever purchased anything from them so I look forward to seeing what they offer.

Later I have an electrician coming to give me an estimate on rewiring the house.

Somewhere in there I need to work on cards.

Soni, I'm sure you'll enjoy Safe Haven. I really would like to see that also, but if not in the theater, I'll see it on DVD or PPV on TV.

Suzy, I want to see your card too. I can envision how you did it, but would love to see the papers that you sued for it.

Dody, a little garden would be great. Have you thought about just doing them in containers?

Morning Ladies! I hope everyone is feeling healthy today! I went upstairs to clean the bathroom & found myself working on a card or two. How I LOVE being able to keep my mess out, I love walking away & coming back to add a touch or two. It is working out well for me....and yes, the bathroom did get clean as well.

Good luck with that. Hope it turns out the way you want it.

Looks like I'll be without power tomorrow for at least 5 hours. I had the electrician come today. Good news is that the house does NOT need to be rewired, but there are some things that should be done for safety sake and to bring up to code. He's going to relocate the breaker boxes outside, redo the outlets in my bedroom and living room, install an outlet in the garage up by the garage door opener to plug it into and put the outside electrical wires in a pipe which goes up 3 feet in the air. Guess what I'm using my income tax refund for??
