No i'm fine. They got my Yahoo account and this one, and snet out that stupid email. As I have told everyone who got the fake distress call, If I was in England I would be at Abbey Road, with my shoes off or at the hard rock cafe, likely also with my shoes off. I can assure everyone my only request would be to send me more money for HRC pins. LOL
i got my appt for the surgery on the top of my wrist. it is out patient surgery on the 23rd of september. he wants to wait a bit before deciding on messing with my finger. he said it just may take care of itself since i have had the gastric bypass and sugar control is better. for the frozen shoulder he gave me a couple of exercises to do at home that should help take care of it. they are much easier then the ones i had to do for the other shoulder a couple of years ago when i was sent to physical therapy.
he was full of praise for the gastric bypass and all the weight i have lost so far. he said that i look a lot better. (thinner) so even though he hasn't seem me in a while even he can see how much i have lost. wish i could. lol!!!!
welcome back home. hope you had a great visit with your family. i remember a few relatives who should have stopped driving and refused. it isn't that they drove very much it was the loss of freedom and having to give up their independence that was the problem. my dad is going through the same thing. his vision isn't the best but he doesn't want to have to ask to be taken anywhere. my mom on the other hand knew when it was time and volenteered to give up her license. all you can do is pray that nothing bad happens before your mom finally stops driving. or get her doctor to do the deed and take her license away. if the doctor sends word to the dmv she won't get her license renewed. good luck with getting her to see reason.
nothing much going on around here. just the usual. mowing the lawn between rain and getting poison ivy.
i went to the flea market last week-end and found some good deals. i have been looking for a couple of wide, low, enamel bowls to drill holes in and use for planting flowers and mother hens and baby chicks in. i found two that will be perfect. they cost me a couple of bucks each. i will spray paint them a pretty blue and then next spring plant them. i also found a couple of hanging wooden planters for my back porch. those cost me a buck each. i will buy the moss inlay next spring and invite my hummingbird friends in to taste the necter. i also found a small painting to go in my bedroom for after i get it painted for $6.00. not a bad day, all in all. i'm not sure when i will get my bedroom painted. i have a lot of work to do first and i want to do my bathrooms done first. i have sheetrock with paper on them which means i need to take the strips down and paste and paper and sand first. with catherdral cealings and being afraid of heights i am dependant on the boys for that. but the reason i want to paint is because of the disgusting paper. it's way too busy for me. i like simple, clean walls. the hearts and flowers in almost every room are driving me slowly mad. then there is my kitchen. that will be done before my bedroom too.
steph is going to take her jewelry up to buffalo this september to the world's largest lawn sale at the hamburg fair grounds and sell it. she is hoping to be able to sell a lot of it there. they said this last spring they had over 7,000 people walk through. it's a one day thing twice a year. i'm going to go through my sci fi books and take the ones i didn't care for and see if i can make some money off of them. i have a lot of books, all hardcover and i would like to make room for my famorite ones. brian is thinking about selling off some of his paintball equipment. he doesn't play much anymore and they can certainly use the extra cash.
i guess this last week was our summer. it's going back to cold and rainy again. drat it all.
i go see my doctor for my shoulder, wrist and finger later today. i'm thinking we will do surgery on my wrist first. maybe in about 2 weeks. tomorrow i go see my gastric bypass doctor and get an official total on my weight loss. total is around 48 pounds. that encludes the 14 i had to lose before the surgery. i'm thinking i should have lost more but at least it's coming off and slow is better then fast. no matter what it is, at least it is coming off. that is a plus in my book. i'll let you know the results of both doctor's appts.
yeah it's wednesday. i like wednesdays. have a good one.
I met Elie Wiesel twice as a teenager. He gave several talks at our school and multiple very intimate small group lectures. A powerful, powerful being. I wish I had encountered him today, the questions would be different.
vent away my dear. that's what friends are for. at least you left the fair on your own two legs and not a stretcher. that's always good. i wish that you hadn't had to leave though. D can be so unacomadating, and always at the worst possible moment.
sammie is a joy. she had everyone at the wedding eating out of her hand. steph was watching her real close and finally everyone told her that sammie would be fine flitting about because they would all keep an eye on her. so relax and have some fun. she still kept an eye on her of course but she did relax a bit. the little minx did get a hold of her uncle's beer and had a sip before we could get it from her. she was more then glad to give it up, she didn't like the taste. that didn't stop her from trying to get other glasses when people set them down though. she didn't realize that the cups of liguid were beer and the pop cans had the pop in them. no one's beer was safe from her. ryan took his best boy duties very seriously and was very happy when he was told he could change and go play. the tux's were a light tan in color so he only stayed in it until after the dinner. zacky also had a job. he had to pass out the bubbles and the bells. he was so funny. if someone said that they didn't want them he said that they had to or he would get in trouble. he would say it in a loud whisper. very confidentially. we were laughing when he couldn't see us.
well guess i better get going. i still have to get to fredonia. we didn't get there yesterday. when we get back i have to finish mowing the lawn before the late afternoon showers get here. i only have the field to do now. i was so tired yesterday i just couldn't finish it. i came in and got a shower and then fell asleep in my chair. i'm so glad that i don't burn in the sun. if i had, i would have been fried yesterday. i don't really tan well either. it might last for a couple of days and then i go right back to my white old self. i suppose that's good, but i would love a nice deep tan.
hope you managed to get a better site. i worry about you. keep that up and we are going to have to find another way to get insulin into you. if they aren't going to give us a cure the least that they could do is figure out a way to help those who have trouble getting good sites.
Well... so far i can cut my rice portion down a lot... but my weakness is in the noodles...
chinese food here... some are starchy... which gives me some surprising spikes... but most of the food i eat don't have sweet sauce... or can be easily modified... perhaps the chinese food i eat is a little bit diff from the US? ^_^
Hi Marie, thanks for the welcome and compliment :).
Yes, I do eat traditional Malaysian food... but mostly towards chinese food since i'm a chinese... but due to the cultural diversity here... i do eat the food of other races... which makes it Malaysian ^_^ ... not D friendly though unfortunately...
Hello Marie,how are you?I miss all of you.I wrote to the lady.Tomorrow I will travel to Egypt,if i will feel better as I have a very bad flu.How is things.The place is getting very basy here with too many members.
vases are done. i put the 3 new photos in my photos. the originals ones are there as well so you can compare them and tell me which ones that you liked the best. we were going to put green ribbons hanging down on them but decided that would be overkill.
how are you feeling today? better i hope.
i have 2 rows of the 8 rows done on stevie and theresa's tablecloth for christmas done. when i am done with that i will start one for steph and brian. they are all crocheted with white crocheting thread. tee loved the doilies that i made for her for her bridal shower gift. so did her mom, she thinks i am quite talented. ha, little does she know. not much talent here, i just like to do it and can follow a pattern.
it's suppose to rain today, but it looks good for the wedding tomorrow. we hunted high and low for a pair of capris for me and ended up borrowing a pair of white ones from steph that she only wore once before she got too big for them. but steph found a fancy top that she liked. so we are all set now. gotta go color my hair now, talk to you later.
glad you like the ray stevens. i sure do remember guitarzan. and so many more. i'm not much on the older country but there are a few that i liked. ray is one of them.
wow it sounds like you had one rough day yesterday. all that high bs sure does make for a very tired next day. i hope your feeling better real soon.
we have a little more on the vases to finish up today after we pick up more sillk roses. i put a pic of them in my photos along with a pic of the revises flowers that terrie8 sent to me when i went in for my surgery. i bought silks to replace the real flowers so i could enjoy them for longer. i really liked the bouquet that she sent. it's very light and airy. of course the flowers were in water and i put glass marbles in the vases when i did the silks, and i need to get some small daffodils next spring when they come out on the market again because there were daffodils in the arraingement, but i think it came out real close to the original.
i also have to find a white pair of capris today for the wedding. i picked up some fake nails with some real pretty blue designs on them that i will have steph put on me tomorrow. we also have to find ryan a pair of dress shoes because the pair they sent with his tux were too small. poor kid tried to wear them but we could see him wincing just standing still. so steph told stevie and theresa that she would get him a new pair.
stevie and theresa came over last night and tee was very happy with the vases. that's a relief. i was so worried that she wouldn't like them. steph and i figured it out. what cost me less then $100.00 in everything from vases to flowers would have cost us $500.00 at a florist. i'm tring to get steph into doing more silk arraingments and selling them then in doing her jewerly. she is very good at it.
