Pull you off? Hell I'd just perch next to ya!!!

It has been a royal PITA to access the site lately.

Hope everyone is well.

Told some of you over on FB, we had bored HS kids decide to build themselves a fire on our back property....and the winds were kicking up. So ended up with the fire dept. and police here yesterday.

Today Rick called and has a guy bringing several loads of fertilizer (aka manure!!!) to spread up there on Monday. We have a play area up there, with horseshoe pits, tetherball pole, net for badmitten/volleyball. All of it is down of course, but there is also a big area we use for a garden and a shady area under the BIG tree we just have garden furniture in during the summer. It is bare up there in the winter....and the fertilizer will help the soil, be all gone before we begin using it again, and will hopefully keep them away----it will reek for a few days anyway, and anytime it gets wet for awhile. The only one who is up there regularly is the neighbor-- he has chickens up on his part. He said he wanted to talk to the guys about bringing some to his garden area as well. Hope they don't just deal with the smell and gather it to burn!! Rick did hook me up a hose to the city Water supply just in case!

I filed reports with everyone I could over it!!! I didn't do this crap when I was a kid, my kids never got in trouble for this kind of stuff, and I would have beat them senseless!! It is frustrating me, because I have seen the kids, they are well dressed and well groomed, they have nice backpacks....and nasty mouths! And there was a pipette up there, so they are smoking more than cigarettes, and I do not want that on my property!

OK enough ranting!

Rick is working on his Moms car this afternoon, then tonight I bought him tickets to a motocross event. Tomorrow we have a softball practice game at noon, then our Grandsons 3rd birthday at 4. And on Monday we are going to Albuquerque to get a welder Rick needs. So taking a few now to catch up!!!

Will do some drive by posting. Have a friend waiting for a new grandbaby---have to check on that!!

Everyone have a safe and fun weekend!!!

HUGS!!

Me too! I miss everyone not coming here, I've been doing it for so many years.

I'm just checking in too! Sorry I have been so quiet on here. I think I just needed a break from LB. The LB process has consumed me this year and I had hoped for a better outcome. Not giving up, but I needed a break from thinking about it. Back to reality....:confused:

OK Y'all have had enough time to get your r&r from lbt, so now get your butts back here.

I just got home from grocery shopping, lots of good veggies, and fruits. I have to get my butt in gear and back on track. I just keep eating and drinking all the wrong stuff and I have gained and it's one place I don't want to go back to.

I sure wish I could do some walking again. I was doing so good when I could walk and get some exercise in.

It has been cold and rainy here all week. I think we are going to go up to Harley though and walk around. They are having a St. Pat's party. And of course I will have a few of the free beers.

I can't buy anything since our wages/hours have been cut so it is just window shopping and people watching.

What is everyone else doing?

Hey there Betty :) Yeah, I can relate to the eating and drinking all the wrong stuff....I totally "blew-it" for my vacation (beach destination). Have to s-q-u-e-e-z-e into some of the clothes that fit good last time! ugh. My son's wedding is mid May, maybe....hopefully.....got to!!!! Just got to get back on track!

I'd sure like to see everyone back in here too! Yooooo-Hoooo! where are y'all?

Hey there Betty! How're things going for ya? I keep coming in here and seeing the same few posts. I miss how active it used to be.

And hello to Trish, Pat, Sherry, Kat, and all the other sweeties that I havn't talked to lately! LOL!

Well, like I said earlier, I really screwed-up...gained weight, not following the rules! Now it's time to pay the piper...I have to go on vacation (beach, gulf of mexico) with all this extra weight! Nobody to blame but me.

Well be there from the 28th til april 7 (work on april 8 *yuck!*)

Gotta run, DH's calling for some assistance, lol!

Hi Everyone

Just checking out the updates on thread. I have to say I know how harley and sign girl feel. I have also gained weight. I was doing so well and then I couldn't eat and was throwing up. It's funny when I can't eat I gain weight. I guess partly because I'm eating the wrong foods, but I still don't get it.

I also don't get why all of a sudden things go south. Like why I started throwig up to begin with. Any ideas appreciated.

Hey folks I'm still alive. This is actually the first update notification I've received in a long time. Lots of stress in my end of the world so I haven't bothered posting anywhere really. :huh2: I just keep saying "this too shall pass" hoping it gets me through to the next week. I haven't gained since surgery but, I haven't lost much either. I did get a fill in February...I have the bigger band now so he gave me about 5cc's. I can feel some restriction somedays and others I don't feel it. However....unfortunately...UGH....with all the stress I think I'm holding in the heartburn is starting :) I haven't been woken up with that drowning feeling but, I am occassionally waking up to heart burn and coughing :eek: So another fill is out of the question for me. I think I'm coming to the conclusion...I've lost what I can and now I need to get this extra skin cut off and learn to like the "extra" padding I still have....just not sure I"m ready for the knife again though.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
