    8/28/11 I will survive !

    Yaaaaaaaay !!!! Just in the nick of time ! So glad to hear this, BP. I'm sure your mom will begin to chipper up a bit once the apt. cools down some. 86 indoors is waaay to warm and would certainly make one feel sluggish! Uphill from here ! :up:

    How're things up your way now, Leslie?????:coollook: Hope things aren't getting worse. Such a glorious day here. Perfect temps, breezy, clear skies, sunny. Makes one feel guilty considering those along the coast. Enjoyed a yummy White Russian out back earlier, then indulged in a lovely mid afternoon nap. Felt WONDERFUL. I, too, need to get back in my workout routine. Have slacked off several weeks now when it got so ridiculously hot. No a/c in the house, so way too hot to do much. The kids are excited about leaving for the beach a week from Tuesday... hoping no more hurricanes !!! They so need this vacation. :up: DD has been showing Gavin videos and photos of the beach, and he claps his little hands in anticipation. :yeah: BP... hoping to hear good news from you soon! Hang in there, ok?

    Good Morning AN peeps ! :nurse: Good to hear from BP again last night.. hope all remains well and that power is soon returned. I see it's hitting LI and NYC now. As for hear, sunny and clear.. not one cloud in the beautiful blue sky. Still quite breezy on and off. Sabby.. your picture this morning is so "our area", isn't it? Just dove by there last weekend. Good ol' Pilot Mtn., or "Mt. Pilot" as they use to call it in the day of Mayberry and Barney Fife. :D Going to enjoy a more relaxing day today. Still have some minor "pottering" to do, but nothing like yesterday. Hope to enjoy some good outdoor time in this fresh air. Lovely. You all have a wonderful day, and hope Irene fizzles out soon for those north of her!

    Wow BP.... you all be safe and praying you keep power! I have heard thousands in NC and places in VA are without already. Do keep us posted ! As for here, it's quite breezy.. windy to be more precise, but certainly nothing like near the coast. I need to get outside and enjoy that breeze.. I have literally worked up a sweat cleaning. ENUFF for today! Time to rest and enjoy the rest of the afternoon. I can piddle around some more tomorrow. I've got done what I needed to today.

    Steph... you have a busy day ahead! :uhoh3: Glad everything was ok re that missed call. Yeh, that sux. I'm stripping all the beds and washing comforters and all today... my clothesline will be loaded down today! :D Hoping all the headaches, earaches and all general aches and pains dissipate quickly today ! Goonie, hope you get squared away with a good alarm system! So glad I din't have to deal with such nonsense. We don't even lock our doors around here. Sheesh. Tweets, have a decent workday, my Friend. AKY.. good to hear your friend is holding his own. I like that he wants to continue doing his own finances. Certainly a plus ! :up: Hope he continues to do well. Fingers crossed that Irene doesn't cause you too much havoc ! Sabby.. enjoy your day with dd and give that sweet Banjo some treats from me !:heartbeat Commuter.. don't overdo ! All work and no play... you know the deal. :heartbeat OK.. next batch of wash going in....

    Good Morning one and all ! :) Glad to see Irene weakening this morning. So far no major damages anywhere from what I can gather from tv. Will be a long 24-48 hours in many places to be sure. Slept a good ten hours or more, and STILL didn't really want to get up this morning! :uhoh3: Michael.. ouch ! Don't know which is worse.. toothache or ear pain. Ear ache perhaps even worse. Hope the meds kick in and you feel better stat !!! Nice to "meet" you Annie ! I can see the two of you as you described it... hahaha ! Gotta love it !:up: Actually have a weekend to myself for a change. Have lots of cleaning to catch up on around here. Hope to get it all knocked out this weekend. Kids are preparing for their upcoming beach trip a week from Tues., hoping the hurricane hasn't damaged anything there on the NC coast. Gavin has progressed soooooooo much this summer !!! He now pees on the potty consistently, even at school..last year he would hold it at school ALL DAY, refusing to even go into the bathroom. Now he goes up to his teacher and pulls on her shirt and says "go pee pee?" :D He is also beginning to interact with his peers a little now! WOW. He use to freak out when they came near him, now he is beginning to share and play. The other day dd took him to a friend with a little guy his age, they have been together many times, but Gavin would never let Ashton near him. They would play separately, never together. This time Gavin held Ashton's hand and they ran and played together like best friends !!! Just amazing. We're speechless! AND... when dd took him for the dreaded haircut this time, Gavin just sat there with his iPad in hand and totally let the girl trim his hair without any fuss whatsoever, no meltdown as has always been the case prior. Autistic kiddos DESPISE having their hair cut or messed with..even washed. A total sensory thing with them, and major meltdowns are to be expected. Not this time. Gavin was good as gold.:yeah::heartbeat:yeah: Of course, dd had "prepped" him all week with iPad apps for Autism...apps that describe "places we go" and "things we do"... and getting a haircut was among the many learning apps. He has gained so very much from his iPad and school and summer camp. It's stunning, truly. They are teaching him to read now as well, as he is already reading three and four letter words on his own at home. Tries to read everything he sees. But then, he's always had a thing about the alphabet and letters. :D And he's talking a lot more now, too. In 3-4 word sentences. When dd woke him up for school yesterday, he rolled over, put his finger on his lips and said: "shhhhh, Mommy, I'm sleeping!" :lol2: He continues to amaze us. :w00t: OK, enough bragging. But this is one happy Omi. :heartbeat

    Yep, yep, been up since 0530, actually ! :D Good Morning one and all ! Brooke... sounds exciting! Hope all works out well. :up: I see some new faces?:coollook: Greetings Poi Dog and xtxrn ! :wavey: Tweety..hope you have a decent day. If one has to float, it should be only be on an air mattress in a sparkling pool surrounded by palms and cocktails with little paper umbrellas. :lol2: So.. off to meet dd this morning. They are seriously strapped for cash and are so hoping to take a 4 day vacation next month to Carolina Beach. They've not been anywhere in 2 years. So she is loading up a huuuuuuge and gorgeous set of china left to her by her great grandmother.... which she will never, ever use and is only in the way and taking up room. That along with some silver service settings, linen tablecloths and collectibles. Heading to Greensboro with her to cash them in at a Company called "Replacements". Enormous place where they buy up china and collectibles and resell to those seeking replacement items for their own sets. Pretty cool. Hoping to come away with a decent chunk of cash for them, so they can materialize their dream of a few relaxing days away at the beach, just having fun in the sun and water and listening to the ocean roar. They're also having a large family yard sale next weekend, and I have spent all week going through all my own "stuff" I no longer use, or have no use for. Stuff that has been accumulating and needs to go. So I have a carload for them to add to their own stuff. :D That will bring a little extra cash as well. OK.. enough babbling... time to hit the road! Catch you all later this weekend ! *muah* to all ! :kiss

    Was quite cool here too after the rain storms, BrookeLou. Changed into long britches to sit on the porch myself. Hot here now but not humid. Clouding up, too. watch it rain when it's time to fire up the charcoal ....:mad: I hate painting, too. And the inside of our house needs it badly. Might have to hire Sabby... she paints every other month! :D Shew... methinks it's time for

    Hi Goonie ! :D Yep.. abused the ol' back plenty in my younger years I reckon... paying for it now. :rolleyes: Ah well... gotta keep doing, pain or not. Tylenol has given me some relief already. Joe.. sounds like you have a full day planned. Enjoy it ! :) Getting quite warm out there now.. in and out of the hammock. Just gave Minnie a bath outside with the hose. Cool her off a bit. Next weekend I'm heading to the lake with dd and Gavin. It's only about ten minutes from her house, and a perfect place to spend the day... picnic lunch, shade trees, grass, beach front, water, sun... has it all. And the best thing... not crowded like the water park, so Gavin does really well there. He lovvvvvvvvvvves it !!! :p Will make our beach reservations later this evening... back to Topsail Island for 3 days mid-October. Haven't been since Mutti passed, so we think it's time for a mini-vaca there. Nice, because we get to take Minnie with us.. pet friendly motel where we stay, and Minnie so loves romping on the beach ! Looking fwd. to it ! :yeah:

    Greetings one and all ! :) Glad you had a safe trip and return home, Commuter! :up: Hate that you have to work tonight after all that, though. :down: Liddle.. shame on you ! I haven't even had breakfast yet! :lol2: Lovely cake... waaaaaaay too rich for me, however! Di.. busy lady as always.. busy ENJOYING LIFE! Good for you !!! :yeah: Sabs, don't overwork that brain today! Still cloudy and cool here after the storms yesterday. Hope it gets nice out soon. Raven.. Cat Stevens was always one of my favorites ! As is "Morning has Broken". Even aught myself to play that on my wooden recorder back in the early 70's. Still love that song! Thank you !!!:smokin: Had an enjoyable day at home yesterday.. got lots accomplished.. work and play wise before the storms arrived bringing much needed rain. No big plans for today... I hoed the garden yesterday, and now my low back is absolutely killing me. Getting old SUKS.:mad: Gonna just lay low today... and take some ALEVE... like NOW. :D You all have a wonderful day. Enjoy. To the fullest. Summertime is HERE ! :dance:
