Hi all

Leanne ?I'm going to say i have pms for 3 weeks out of 4 so thats my excuse for eating chocolate just can not stop at having a bit got to eat the lot fruit and nut is the best. ?You just love making us all jealous here don't you with you're telling us about that lovely california weather and going to the beach at the weekend.

Weather here in the UK may be quite nice at the moment ?but i do not think it can compare to where you are. So stop or we will have to banish you to the Artic then you will know what snow is. ?(You know i'm kidding don't you)

Tex sorry to hear about you're back what have you been up to? ?you know the doctor said that was not allowed. ?

Hi girls,

Today's my bobby's birthday.  I woke with a sinus headache, errrrrrr and have alot to do.  Took him to work, then went to Mervyn's bought him some light weight polos for work.  Then got a tummy ache had to dash home so I could use my own bathroom.  Headache will cause me to feel nausea or go to the bathroom, headaches being nurological can cause this.  Anyway I wasn't done shopping for his b'day.  So I went out once more, got him a new pair of sandals at Payless shoe sourse.  hehehe

Ok leanne here's the down side of my day, so that you know I'm human.  I had had fresh fruit for b'fst.  But was really craving a Hot Cross Bun.  So after I took Bella in to be washed,,,,,,,,,couldn't even fatham me washing her with my headache.  I went to Safeway, and bought some.  Got his card, gift bag, and wrap. Now I guess I had better clean up, as his b'day cake will be ready in an hour.  

Was going to make homemade spaghetti and meat balls, one of his favorites, we shall see.  I just might put a call in Pietros and order out.  

It's a mild day, sort of a cloudy day.  Teeshirt and jogger bottoms is what i'm wearing.  If I was brave I would have worn burmudas, nope nope nope, gonna get me some capri pants. Yea that'll do it!!!

Feel good girls, be safe have a great Wednesday  :)

Aloha girlfriends,

Just got caught up on everyones posts.

Its been so hectic with work, and then feeling sad about my Harry.  Well, hubby and I are getting through it.  Thanks again for all of your support.

So glad to hear Jennimarie is hanging in and the cancer hasnt spread.  Whew!

It's been beautiful here.  (today is a touch cloudy, but who cares????)  Went to the beach on Saturday and it was divine.  Whales are still here, they will be getting ready to go north soon.

A (quite nice looking) gentleman was in my center working this morning.  He is a local meeting planner here with one of the groups.  I gave him "special price" for his use of the center.  Well!  He just came in and gave me a bottle of champagne!  Whoohoo!! My favorite!  

He's flirting big time too.  This is kinda fun!  Can't wait to get home and get this bugga chilled down!  I know, Ed and I will have a toast for our boy........:-)

Well girlies, I better get back to work.  I'm on the other side again today so I have the long drive home too.  

Be safe, be well, spread a little aloha!Lolly

AS OUR LOVED ONES AGE. CAREGIVINGCOPING WITH DEMENTIA - ALZHEIMER'SWHAT TO DO?
SANDY BRAFF, M.A., M.F.T.
is a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist in private practice in the San Diego area.   While you're living with a loved one who is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's disease, you must be able to survive one emotional upheaval after another. Caregivers have been known to put their own lives on hold and become entirely devoted to caregiving - making this difficult role even harder, and often compromising their own health. Even if you're not the primary caregiver, there are difficultie associated with staying connected, while letting go. Sandy Braff will show us that this needn't happen. Sandy authored Staying Connected While Letting Go: The Paradox of Alzheimer's Caregiving. Since 1989, she has voluntarily facilitated a weekly Alzheimer's Caregiver's Support Group for the San Diego Alzheimer's Association.  She also facilitates a monthly support group at a local Alzheimer's facility.

This is a chat about caregiving and coping with our aging loved ones with dementia, Alzheimer's and how to cope and care for yourself as well.

I look forward to seeing you,Thursday, April April 10th at 9 PM, ESTin Power Surge Live!

Good Morning girls!!!  The sun is shining for the second day ina row.We had frost on the plants this morning though. Am keeping my fingers crossed that my flowers and pear tree will make it okay. Blooms are on for now.

Looking forward to the chat Thurs. nite. Worked hard on an Alzheimers wing for several years. We started it from scratch. Floor plan to decorating to dining area and procedure. Very futuristic for this part of the midwest. State surveyor's loved it so much they sent other facilitites and companies for tours and lessons.

Biggest thing i learned from family and daily experiences is space and time for yourself. We were/are very big on allowing and encouraging family to spend as much or as little time and participation as they feel necessary or capable of giving.

Decided I was going to wear myself out today doing manual labor out of doors. When I get done i will have to take Ibuprophen and a long hot bubble bath( followed by a hotflash i will sleep thru).

Enjoy the weather, no matter what kind you have today!

Hi Everyone,

Didn't get in here this morning, so am hoping that you're all having a great day!

It's sunny this PM in Virginia, but supposed to have heavy rain tonight-ugh!  After that, I think it's supposed to (finally) warm up a bit--we'll see.

Am trying to keep myself busy while hubby is away, but not doing a very good job at it!  Doing some craft work and painting on my mural.  I think I better get out of the house tomorrow!!!!

Hope to see you all at tonight's chat!  Take care!

Debbi

I forgot to post this morning also!   GG-  You are very lucky to be in love, and to have such a tight family.  I am divorced after 21 years- it was pretty rough, but now having quite a time!  Yippee!  Headed for Cancun in about 3 weeks!  Have a really nice fella now too.

It looks like my weekend beach weather is going by the wayside (are you HAPPY, Pauline?!?!?!  LOL)   although it's been sunny all day, the clouds are starting to move in and we are expecting rain tomorrow.

Tomorrow is Friday- TGIF!  

Smile girls and have a great weekend!

Untill i'm liveing where you are i will not be happy.  You have it all sun sea and a lovely fella.  Do i sound very jealous.   We have had a lovely sunny day ?reminds me not to eat all the chocolate or my tummy and bottom will be wobbling as i walk. cannot hide it in the warmer weather i do get funny looks when walking down the road in my ?winter coat have got to get myself a summer jacket. ?Have a lovely weekend with you're kind fella.

Not alot doing for me this weekend think i will have to get myself a fella who live's by the sea.

GG ?Was thinking about you today and you're lovely walks. ?You helped me i have started going to Yoga thought it might help with my panic attacks. ?I do panic when going away from the house and where i went today ?was a bit of a walk from my house started panicking on the way back but i kept you in mind and thought how far way you walk everyday and to look for the lovely things around us which is what i did and i made it home without panicking to much. Thanks

Well ladies what ever you are doing have a GOOD WEEKEND.

Take carePauline

Hi girls,

It's 8:15am here.  Haven't gone yet for my walk, will do real soon.  Today will be my long one.  Have to be quick today.  Bobby has an appointment with the cardiologist at 11:00am.  I will be going with him.Today's our days off as well.  Hopefully we'll do something fun fun fun.  Although it is a week from tomorrow that bobby's daughter and her 2 sons arrive. They will be here for a week.  Haven't seen them in over 3 yrs.  Bobby will be meeting his new g'son as well.  

The weather is chilly here right now.  I'm sitting here with my little joggers jacket on.  hehehe don't want to turn the heat back on, nope nope nope.

Pauline you sound like your doing really well.  That's terrific that you got through it, I'm so pleased to hear that.  :)  Yoga is great.  I'm not a true Yogie, I mean I can not twist this old body into postions that I've seen some do.    am/pm Rodney Yee, the gentle gentle stretching, is my speed.    Sure does help me when I get home from my walks.  Your quite welcome Pauline glad that I could help smile.gif

Well I gotta jam here.  

Have a great weekend girls.  Feel good.  Enjoy that beauty around you.  I'm wanting to pick lilacs for putting in a vase, only I don't have any around sad.gif hmmmmm thinking here.  

be safe GG

Wishing you all a great weekend!  Be well and safe!

Hello Ladies..Hope everyone's having a good Friday! Deb..It's a dreary, rainy day here in W.VA also. It's been that way all week, and we even had about an inch of snow one morning..can't remember which day.  Things are looking up though, highs in the 60's by sunday..then upper 70's all next week. I feel so much better when we have sunshine. We go out and hunt for wild mushrooms this time of year,  their called Morels. I've been doing that since I was a little girl. Very tasty! Take care everyone, and have a good weekend..I wish sunshine for all.
