Just sitting here doing nothing since it’s over 80 deg and it is only 9am! Hot hot day here. We’ll leave here Tues and then spend 2days in the Des Moines area before going up to Aaron’s in MN. Most everyone left for their homes yesterday so it’s very quiet now

Anna...I think your boss’s decision stinks! But you have the right thought to hold on while you find something else! Enjoy the rain cuz it’s headed for 93 deg here today and I’m praying the air conditioner doesn’t break!
Uh oh. iPad is under 5% power....I’ll bbl when it’s charged again to finish

Anna - Mouth is still a little sore but good overall. I don’t blame you for going with him until you find something else.

I started the Keto Diet. I was reading all the science behind it. It is high fat (which makes you feel full), moderate protein and low carb way of eating. Basically you just STOP eating bad stuff and ear whole, good for you foods. I haven’t had a diet soda in over a week. They don’t even taste good now. I drink water, tea and coffee. I am not going to lie it isn’t easy and you need to prep ahead so you don’t grab bad foods.

It’s going to be another blistering day here too. Uggg!

Cathe..such fantastic los ! I’m inspire but can’t do anything about it.
Cheryl.. I’ve heard of the keto dietbut not the specifics. Good luck on it.
Danielle..looks like you are having a great vacation
Denise..my mouth watered over your tomato description! It made me remember the ones the me grandfather grew! He also always planted garlic between each plant to keep the green bugs off

Anyone doing anything for Memorial Day? We leave MO tomorrow and will spend a day at least near DesMoines and then up into MN. I’m anxious to see the grands but I really want to head home

Terry, it's verry green and pretty in Iowa. The peonys are gorgeous up there. Be safe.

Going to the Broyles family reunion today. Couldn't get any of my cousins or my uncle and aunt to come. Kinda sad.

Good morning!

Nothing special yesterday. Spent the day reading up on job interviews and preparing an updated resume. Just not sure I am up to going thru this at my age. 3.5 years I can retire at 62........

Sorry to keep ranting about this. This has been a very upsetting ordeal. Moving forward I will try not to bore you all with this situation.

Today is Donna's funeral.

Good morning!!

Anna- talk to us all you want about the job situation. That's what friends are for.

Cheryl- your card is beautiful. I love that stamp set.

Denise- it's too bad you couldn't convince the other relatives to go to the reunion.

Terry- have fun with the grandkids.
Doug, Charity and Van were over for dinner last night. They loved our new trailer. They said that the set up will be so much easier for Rum than the pop-up.

I'm so excited that a gal got in contact with me who is trying to figure out her heritage. Our Grandfather's were half brothers.

I'd better do some cleaning today. Don't wanna.

I'll be thinking of Donna. Rest in peace Donna.

I ran at the park this morning. It was so nice. 70 degrees, overcast and a breeze. Felt great. I am doing laundry and eating my lunch out on the patio before the rain comes later this afternoon. It is only 80 here today. We opened the doors and turned off the air for today.

Thinking of Donna and her family

Good morning all! Jeannie said to say hi to all you lovely ladies... We had a great visit.. we only scrapped one day but that was enough for me to do two layouts... to her one... which of course is gorgeous!
I feel like we ate the whole time... good food though! Jeannie and Jon had a bar b que on Saturday... there were 17 of us! One was my cousin whom I haven't seen since I was 10! She's from VA, but now lives an hour north of my sister... it was soo good seeing her!

Danielle, sounds like you had a fun filled vacation. I'm glad you were able to see all of your family and the babies! Fun times do fly by fast!

Cathe, isn't that amazing? You're related? My DD, Kelly, and her BFF did the "23 and me" and discovered they're related somewhere along the line... it shows my niece (Jeannie's daughter) as her BFF's 4th cousin...

Anna, I'm sorry to hear about your job! and no benefits? Have you decided what you're going to do?

Cheryl, I'd so love to get rid of sugar... I have a major sweet tooth!..
You make me want to re-think my eating! 8 lbs! Congrats!

Terry, my sis colors alot... on her ipad... its an app called "Color Therapy"... I introduced her to it, and she got addicted to it.. just like i introduced her to scrapbooking years and years ago.. LOL

Ashley, I don't think I could work in a windowless room! I'd go crazy after one day!... I need to see the sun... or the clouds if it's rainy.. I hope you make it through..

Denise, how's your trip going so far? Were you able to avoid the storms? Sounds like a busy trip.

WTH?!?!? I just read some posts... Donna passed away? OMG! That is so so sad! She was too young! My heart hurts for her family. Was it recently? I was thinking of her the other day and missed her funny posts here.

I asked Michael, my boyfriend, what he'd like for his birthday... fishing.... so we're going fishing on Friday.... I hope he hooks the worms for me! LOL!

I'm getting used to everyday being a Saturday... I haven't started any of my projects that involve money yet.... first one is probably painting my scrap room... FINALLY... I went to Lowe's and brought home a pile of paint chips... decisions decisions... I'm so over the orange wall, orange closet doors and black trim and baseboard... Michael doesn't know it yet.... but i volunteered him to help...

You Got Me By Scrapkaty

I played with the waterfront stamp set again. After supper, I am going to make myself work on layouts. I don't think the photo does this card justice. It is on watercolor paper so it looks different in the photo. I used wink of stella to make the water shimmer which I don't think shows up here either.

Hi! My sister and her dog were over here the whole three day weekend. Her husband went golfing with one of his friends so my sister stayed here with us. It was kind of annoying, to tell the truth, since they sleep in my room and it makes my room a mess and that somehow becomes my fault. Today I was in the third floor lab and it was pretty bad...I couldn't get one machine to pass QC and had to call service. I have to ask tomorrow if service ever came to fix it.

Cheryl- That's awesome! That's the kind of diet my dad needs to be on but he'd never do it.

Anna- When I work at 61st street, I'm in a lab with no windows and it drives me insane. It makes me feel boxed in and trapped and crazy.

Cathe- My mom wanted to see "Book Club" but my sister didn't want to so she wound up seeing "Solo" with me. It wasn't a very good movie to tell the truth LOL!

Terry- The weather's been super warm here...but I spend most of my time in a climate controlled lab LOL!

Good morning!! I am having coffee and listening to the rain. Guess I will not run today. I will have to do something else. I need to clean up the kitchen AGAIN!! Eating healthy is great but you have to cook and mess up lots of dishes. Of course, I am trying to make several things I can reheat since I work the next 3 nights and don’t want to get up and cook after sleeping.

I didn't know you had lost a son. I'm sad for you.
Good luck choosing a color for you scrap room!! There are so many! LOL

Good morning ladies. We are in the most gorgeous camp site near Des Moines called Walnut Woods. And it is ..... all old walnut trees. We leave here tomorrow for MN.
I may put the new thread up a day early if no one minds since time with the DGK is foremost on my mind.

Anna... No ,with my situation I just needed up with no job for years. I was depressed about it and felt horrible that I didn’t have an income. Then some contracting work came and I retired after that but still with no benefits until I turned 65. SS thinks retirement age is now 66 and you don’t get full benefit ($$$$) until then.
Ashley...can’t your sister stay home if her hubby leaves? Weird..
Cathe... I found out yesterday we will only get to see the kids for 2 days since they are still in school and next week is finals week. So we may leave early and just tootle back home sightseeing.
Cheryl... you have great will power! Is Karol on this new diet with You?
Danielle...so glad you had a great time with your family. I’d love to have a newborn around!
Denise...Iowa is gorgeous! Such pristine farm land! I’d love to just go driving around today but hubby is having a “not doing anything day”
Katy.. so glad your trip to Jeannie’s was fun! Great Los too. Nice to see Michael and I’m sure he’d love to volunteer to paint!!!

I’m trying to find a specific Julie Nutting doll named Nina. She wears a bolero vest and high heels. Anyone know a sit that has her for sale?

Hi Terry-- I don't have that doll.
I'll ask the Grans and see if anyone knows where you can get it.

Gee you were so closed to me...........well hundreds of miles but closer than you are back home. LOL
It's too bad the kids are still in school. bummer.

Terry - No he is not on the diet with me but he does eat whatever main dish I cook. He also has eaten some of my snacks. He isn’t convinced yet.

The rain stopped about 9 and sun came out so I still got to go for my run at the park. Made me happy!!!!

Hi! Was up in the main lab today and there was almost a riot. We're getting our yearly performance reviews but the new supervisor doesn't want them handed out until everyone hands in their continuing education credits. Thus far, only four people (one being me) have handed all 12 continuing education credits in. The lead techs were trying to convince the rest of the staff to get theirs handed in because our raises are dependent on our performance reviews and we'd all like our raises to kick in.


Cheryl- I don't know how you work three overnights in a row! I can't even imagine being functional after working overnight!

Cathe- We're not getting rain here but I have a sneaking suspicion it'll show up on Saturday. My friend and I are going to BookCon for the first time this Saturday...it's like ComicCon but for Books (he's not a huge reader but I am LOL).

Terry- Silly question but were there actual walnuts on the trees?
