Take care sister's Love and Hugs
Hey, there. Lonnie, that's cool when James hears it, too. Good luck with the last class. I'm sure you'll do fine. I'm glad you're liking the job, too. Makes all the hard work worth it, I'm sure.
I'm off to do some painting of my husband's shed that he's been building. I can't wait until it's done. I'll try to be back later, but I have Council on Aging meeting tonight, so I'm not sure. If not, I'll be back tomorrow. I miss having our daily chats with everyone. I just miss everyone, I guess. I hope everyone's well.
Hugs and love.
Hope you are all well. I love you.
Suz I love your Michael moments. James had one the other morning. I go pick him up at 7 and drive him home. AT 7 on Friday morning "Beat it" started playing. He had forgot to check the time so hearing Michael made him look at the clock and realize he had to come out quickly so I could get to work. I laughed and said Thanks Michael.
I am officially done with this class so last class starts Tuesday. I am so thankful this last one was a challenging course. However, very informative since it dealt with special needs children and the paper work involved in getting them the help and accommodations they need in a classroom. I still have to go back and answer my classmates replies to my posts but that is easy.
I love you all see you tomorrow sometime after I finish mowing.
Hey, there! Lonnie, I'm sure it's hard now, but just think of the rewards once you accomplish that degree? I'm so proud of you, and I'm sure you'll get some peace and rest. Tell that family you're ON STRIKE! See how long it takes them to get it once they're all out of underwear, snacks, etc. I did that a few times. It doesn't last, though.
I have had a couple of "Michael Moments" over the past two days:
FIRST: I went to a show in Boston last night. It was a band from Tammy's neck of the woods. Kalamazoo, MI. They're a bluegrass band who are billed as "newgrass" and "jamgrass" and a mix of rock, rockabilly, bluegrass, country, etc., called Greensky Bluegrass. I was SUCH a good show, and such a mix of ages, too. The club was one of the best clubs to see music, the Paradise Rock Club. A small, intimate venue to showcase great talent. The Paradise is the first place U2 played in America, along with lots of other artists over the years. So, here we are waiting for the opening act, and they play "I Want You Back." Obviously I'm excited, right? Then in between sets they play "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough." STOKED! After the show, as soon as the house sound came back on, they played "Burn This Disco Out!" HOLY SCMOLEY! I couldn't help dancing a l'il bit, singing my heart out!
SECOND: As you guys know, I do a lot of sewing, fiber arts, etc. Well, one of my passions is fabric dyeing in lots of ways, including shibori and tie dyeing. On one of the fb pages I belong to, a guy posted a hoodie he died, which he folded one sleeve toward the center of the hoodie. The hood itself was tilted slightly down, too. He said it was set in "MJ Pose" and he liked the big huge heart on the back of the hoodie, so he was calling it "Thriller!" Isn't that cool?
Anyway, I'm off to put laundry away, then head to the gym before work. I hope everyone's well. I'll be back tomorrow.
Good morning. We got a nice turn of weather today highs in the 70's and tomorrow 60's. Oh how wonderful. However, Cyaira and Liz have come down with bad colds and coughs. I have to take Cy in this morning since she cannot sleep well. Got to get her checked out due to that respiratory illness going around in our area. I told Liz to go but she hates to spend money at the doctor's office.
Birthdays I love running into Michael fans. That feels just so wonderful. I just put zombie decals on the car (Liz bought them for me last Christmas). Since I am known as the MJ fan here everyone keeps asking where my MJ decals are. I got to get a new one lol can't let the people down.
Suz school is going well. I am loving it. I am feeling a bit stretched to thin but 7 more weeks of college and that Master's degree is finished which will clear up some time. Last night I brought home papers to grade and it felt like it took forever to get through them I was so worn out. It is hard taking care of the needs of the family and the house along with my commitments. It would be nice if someone around here would pitch in and help. It feels like they are trying to make the biggest messes they can, some days I just want to explode at them all.
Anyway I am off today to it is catch up day. I love you all.
Lonnie, I don't remember when, of if, they filed those down. Maybe his are just looking so big until he gets the braces off? I don't remember. I hope school's going well.
Birthdays, how cool to meet a young MJ fan. What did Mum have to say? Or was the there with you? I'm glad you got that project done. On to the next one! LOL Hope Mum's breathing gets better soon.
I'm off to relax, then hit the sack. Long day at work today. I'll be back tomorrow. Hope everyone's well.
Evening ladies just a quick drop in Happy Birthday to Dalton hope he has a good day. Simon had to wear braces he hated them. Suz don't overdo things girl. Have finished mum's room now and can get some gardening done before the next project lol can't believe it is september already where has the year gone. Had to go to the bank this morning the guy we saw was so young thought they were taking from the nursery lol must be getting old. As we sat talking about mine and mum's account he said you're a Michael Jackson fan I told him yes he had seen the keyring on my purse he is an MJ fan as well said he wished he could have been born when MJ was doing Thriller said it was inevitable I was to become a fan being born on the same day 2 yrs apart lol was good to see that a young person was into Michael's music. Mum is still out of breath but they don't know why as her heart etc sounds good but she keeps going I'm glad to say. Hope everyone is doing ok Venay Tammy Darling missing you all.
Mega Hugs and Love x
Do you remember how long until they file those canines down? I giggle every time he smiles. Just sitting here watching School of Rock, I adore these little kids in here so talented. Anyway I am a worn out lady but I had to stop in and leave my love. I think I am going to bed now.
Hey, there! Lonnie, that boy is 14 already??????????? OMG, he's growing up so fast. I remember when you could see the braces start to work, and you're like WOW!
The canines will look better once the braces are off, trust me. We went through the whole "junior vampire look" too, LOL!
I'm off tomorrow, so I'll be back then. This old gal is TIRED! Hope you're all well.
Don't worry hun I answer when I see you have found the time. I totally understand busy and lack of time. Not like you miss much anyway.
Tomorrow is Dalton's 14th birthday. I cannot believe my baby boy is going to be that old. It went by too fast. He talked his father into a laptop because he broke his tablet by dropping it too many times. Seems like a waste of money to me, but nothing that boy wants does his daddy not make happen. Instead of a fancy one I did find one for a little over $200 we will see how he treats this one. Anyway his new set of braces really have pulled the teeth together, what a difference these past 3 weeks have made. Looking pretty good now except for those pointy canines being very visible. He looks like a baby vampire lol.
I love you all. See you later on.
Hi, ladies. Or, Hi, Lonnie!
Sorry for my lack of posts this week. Crazy week, followed by some extra shifts. I hope everyone's doing well. I'll be back on Monday to catch up. Love to you all.
Just a quick note before I head off to school. I am off tomorrow so I will catch up. These thunderstorms sent us over to the college next door for safety. While there I comforted these two sweet little girls. It seems their school mother was not so much motherly. So I showed them where I lived and invited them over when they feel scared. It was sweet. Cyaira of course found it funny, I go over there and adopt two new strays. I can't help it I just hate to see someone cry, it breaks my heart. Anyway storms all night so very little sleep here. I am not looking forward to this day but it will go quickly once I get started.
I love you all, see you tomorrow.
Hi, ladies. I've been busy the past couple of days, so I haven't been on here. I hope you're all doing well. I see that they had the final show of Immortal yesterday in Guadalajara. I can't believe it's been going for three years already! Michael would have been so thrilled and felt so proud to see all these young dancers interpreting his music in such a positive, delightful way. I'm glad I got to see it.
Birthdays, I posted on fb to wish you a happy birthday, but I'll say it here, too: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I bet you wish you could have shared your day with Michael for real, huh? I don't think he'd be happy with all the unrest and unhappy things happening in the world these days. Not to mention the things happening with all the people he thought were his friends! Backstabbers, liars and thieves, the whole lot of them! I'm glad Teddy is doing better, and it's good to hear Simon is doing well in his new place. LOL, comes home for food.
Lonnie, don't work too hard, girl. I would love to be planning back to school today, as this would be the big day for us to do that. Miss my little ones! Miss the feeling when they're all back at school, too! Hope the kids have a good year.
I'm off to watch some TV before bed. I'll catch you ladies tomorrow.
Evening goldies hope everyone is ok another year older wiser well maybe lol Simon came friday night and went back yesterday evening after his sunday lunch of course that boy can eat so long as someone else cooks it lol He is doing a lot of overtime and I worry because he walks home 5 miles and has to walk a cycle path with no lighting keep telling him to take care all he says is I'm 24 not 4 but you hear so many bad things happening these days. Afraid my birthday was the same as any other day lol always something to do Simon got me my favourite perfumes and mum got me credit for I tunes. Did a lot of thinking about Michael would have been 56 wonder what he would think of the world cruelty and war on the rise in the 5 years he has been gone. Teddy went back to the vet's today he is still a little itchy but he is ok and had his mite solution again although the vet was not good had to ask all the things the other vet had done let him get away and the poor baby went straight into the wall save us from just qualified vets. He is ok now loves his taxi rides bless him. Am on the last leg of decorating mum's room got the lawn mowed yesterday she say's I do to much but it has to be done.
Oh well got to get better right we are supposed to be having a heatwave this month but all it has been doing is rain hope you are having better weather.
Take care sister's LOVE and HUGS xxxxxxx
Happy Birthday Michael Darling, you are always in my heart.
Happy Birthday Birthdays sweetie. Hope you had a great day.
Ahhh Suz a double on Sunday, that would be so hard to go out before. It is so hard to tell them no since it does not happen that often.
I love you all I have got to run and get some groceries before it gets much later.
Lonnie, enjoy your day off. My housework will never get done, LOL! Yeah, it stinks not having the whole back to school commotion and excitement around here! But...they have to grow up, right? Much as I wish they didn't. I hope you enjoy your weekend, too. I'm working tonight, Friday night, and Sunday double. Off Monday, so that's cool. My husband is off Monday and Tuesday. We're supposed to go out Saturday night, but I kind of wish we would stay home. Every Saturday we've had something for months, and by the time it's time for my Sunday morning double, I'm wiped. He on the other hand can sleep in on Sundays, so he doesn't care. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!! Oh, well, we'll see waht happens.
Yes, we are once again at that sad time of year when we remember Michael's birthday. I hope his family and his kids find ways to celebrate his life on that day. I know I always do. Birthdays, you're having a birthday, too. What will you do on your special day? I hope it's fun, and I'm sure it will involve Michael at least for part of your day. <3
I'm off to finish some chores, then relax before work. I'll be back tomorrow. Have a great one.
JUst relaxing this morning since I have the day off. I needed it my housework is suffering.
Suz I bet it is hard when they get older and those little things like going back to school are over. Like you said those grandkids will be soon enough. I am sure your kids would appreciate the help since it gets more and more expensive every year. I saw that this year Wal~Mart had a back to school bundle (it contained everything an elementary student would need). However, for the older kids nothing in there was useful.
What are you all planning for labor day? Do you have to work? We are off so it will be a nice long week-end. James' birthday is Friday, of course so is our sweet Michael's and darling Birthdays. We are cooking out but staying home. I refuse to head to the lake.
I love you all. See ya later I got to get started on this house.
Lonnie, I'm so glad you're enjoying your new job. This is what you've been working so hard for, right? Makes it all worth it.
I'm kind of wishing I had some back to school things going on around here! Miss those days, actually. I miss when my boys were little and we'd be filling back packs and hanging up first day outfits! LOL I guess I'll have to wait for grandkids to enjoy that again, huh? Oh, well. I'll wait.
Hope everyone's well. I'm off to take my brother to two different doctors. I'll try to be back later. If not, have a great one.
Yes Birthdays I am loving this job. After I get through this week I will only work Mon. Wed. & Friday. They are assuming the kids will be more on track then. It was only supposed to be part time but I didn't mind helping out until a routine was developed. I also agree with Suz please take it easy and the black pants are just as wonderful as the gold ones.
Suz I sure wish it would cool off at night it stays about 80 degrees. Our central air has been going out every week. So today I came home to a hot home, not something I wanted to come home to. I am just going to run down and buy window units I am so fed up with it all. This is its 4th break down. You would think the work was covered but every time they replace something new (according to them anyway).
Well I have to go pick up Wyatt from work. Poor kid has to do 5-12 hour days this week. I love you all.
Hi, ladies. Hope everyone's doing well.
Lonnie, we have had pretty cool nights with dry, warm days, but I hear that's about to change. We're going back to HOT weather this week! Why couldn't we have summer when it's summer, and etc.? Oh, well. I'm glad you're enjoying your new job. Keep cool and don't overdo it.
Birthdays, you, too, no overdoing it! I'm sure the house will look awesome when it's done, though. Hope the vet bill isn't too steep.
I'm off to relax before bed. Double shifts on Sundays kind of kick my butt! LOL I'll be back tomorrow.
Evening goldies Lonnie bet your loving your new job well done girl you are getting summer we are on the way to winter as temps have dropped and it rains on and off most of the day am sick of rushing out for the washing lol Still decorating and am hoping to finish mum's room this week fingers crossed. Suz know how you feel about computer virus always make sure my security is up to date it won't let me go on to sites that are risky thank goodness. Teddy is getting better I take him back to the vets on 1st september so the credit card gets bashed again he has to have his second dose of mite mix on the back of his neck just a precaution. Hi Dorothy how are you. I had today off so back to the grindstone tomorrow want it finished Simon is coming friday night until sunday and want it all cleared up.
Thought we could use those black patent pants lol Take care sister's LOVE you all
I just finished mowing the yard before it got too hot, took a shower, and now I need to run and get some groceries. A mom's work is never done. All I wanted to do was sleep in today, but if I did that I would not be able to sleep tonight.
How is everyone doing? I hope you are evading the heat, or staying dry. Since the weather map shows it all going on. I am hoping for some rain here cause summer showed up finally and it is kicking some butt. I do not get how those little kids can run around during recess like they do. I would refuse to go out if I had a choice.
I love you all. See ya soon.
Lonnie, I know you'll get in the swing of things. 4:30 is rough, but....if it gives you the time you need, right? I wish you well.
Dorothy, thank you for describing it. I'm sure it's lovely. One day when I have a better behaved computer, I'll get to see it.
I'm off to do some chores, then some tying and dyeing. Make hay while the sun shines, right?
Hope you're all well.

How is it going? I am still getting used to these hours and coming home and doing some homework. However, all worth it in the end. I am sure I will get into the swing of things soon.
Right now I have to get up at 4:30 just to have time to get ready before everyone else needs in there. It bites having one bathroom sometimes.
I love you all. I will see you soon.
Lonnie, that is AWESOME! I'm so happy for you. I know you'll get yourself squared away with the homework and school schedule. It's probably going to be tough at first, but you'll do it. So proud of you, girl! Keep up the great work.
hadasmj, I can't view videos right now since I've been having some computer trouble/virus, etc. I don't want to take any chances. But I'm sure it's great.
Hope everyone's doing well. I'm off to shower before work. I'll be back tomorrow.
Hadasmj : yes im sure he feel this love, you are beautiful <3 thanks to be <3
