  1. :yippee: CONGRATULATIONS :yippee: on your son's baseball game, PatK!!!!!

    Boy have I been busy!!!

    My son was just hired at the Jewel I work at. He had orientation today and we have been looking for a car for him to get back and forth to work in. Nothing to fancy just a good and reliable beater that will last a while and I think we might have found one.

    It is a 1990 Olds Cutlass, it's maroon with good looking grey leather material. The hubby is going to go and take a look at it tomorrow and see if it will cut the mustard.

    I also got news that I have to start checking my blood glucose everyday and I have to start taking thyroid medication. I was wondering why I hadn't been feeling quite up to par lately. Hopefully I will get myself straightened out.

    I also have to find time to start getting my stuff together for the UK Cony.

    A woman's work is never done!!!

  2. Been a while since I've posted.

    I am SO, SO glad all you ladies had a rockin' time in Vegas.

    Trixie....your pictures turned out really well. You and Paul are a very handsome couple. You two should go on that dance show that is on Fox, I can't remember the name, but I bet you two would win!!!

    Shannon....I will be saying prayer for you in hope that your chemo pills work out. Keep up your faith and positive attitude, those are two of the most important things to have.

    PatK...I hope you can get your pictures uploaded so we can see them.

    I just love window shopping!!! My sister and I do it all the time and we pick things and tell each other what we would do if we could afford them.

    Miklyn.....you looked gorgeous in Trixies pictures!!!! Have you also lost some inches?? It looks as if you have. Keep up the good work!!!

    HELLO to everyone else out there in Gerryland!!!!

  3. Trixie....Paul is in my prayers. They will probably put him on Coumadin to thin his blood so that the the clot will disolve.

    Pat I had to work today so I know how you and your daughter feel. But I must say a mandatory dance practice on Memorial Day is a bit EXTREME.

    I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day. Even though I had to work today I had a good weekend. The kids were with the sister to help her move into her new house.

    You ladies are really close to VEGAS TIME!!!!!! I am excited for you all!!!! I want lots and lots and lots of pictures!!!!!

    Well I am off to eat some supper.

    Type at ya soon!!!


  4. Shannon.....I will put you in my prayers. You are a brave woman and I admire you greatly for that. I know that you will beat this.

    Thank you for all the well wishes for Doug and my doggie.

    Doug and I go to the orthopedic surgeon on Tues. to have him checked out set up a day for the surgery. I guess it is a good thing I canceled my trip to Vegas as I would have to cancel it now and risk loosing a butt load of money over it. I guess everything does happen for a reason.

    Cheyenne got her stitches out this morning. It is such a traumatic thing (for her and I both) because she has to be muzzled.

    After they were done taking the stitches out the Vet Asstistant gave her a couple of treats and she ran out and she opened up the bag to show her and Cheyenne stuck her whole nose up into it and I joked that they should have just used the treat bag as the muzzle.

    Paulette.....You are one busy woomun!!!! You will get a much needed get away in a couple of weeks with Vegas and then in another 8 weeks we will be heading out for our UK tour!!!! I am really excited about that!!!!

    We have been SO busy the last few days with graduation and confirmation cakes. Now we have Memorial Day to get through. Then we will have a lull until the 4th.

    I just found out yesterday that a son of one of my best friends is heading out to army bootcamp on July 9th. He is 19 and I have known him for 15 years. I feel as if one of my own sons is leaving. Deb and I both got teary eyed over the phone last night as we talked about it. We are both very scared for him as we both know in the back of our minds that he is going to be sent to Iraq after his training is all finished.

    Well I am off to wash my hair type at you all soon.


  5. Hello all.

    It looks like everyone has been out enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having.

    Paulette- I am really proud of Ethan!!! I SO wish I could make his graduation, but I will not be able too. I am sending a card in the mail, so tell him to be looking for it.

    I've been busy working lately. I've been working for some of the ladies who have had to take a day off here and there.

    Also the hubby got some disturbing news yesterday. He had an MRI done on Sat. and he found out that he has a torn rotator cuff. He has been in some serious pain for the past couple of weeks and I talked him into going to the doctor. He has an appointment next Tues. with an orthopedic surgeon. It looks as if he may need to have surgery. So if you all have an extra few second in the next couple of days please send a prayer his way. He is very nervous and scared.

    As for my muttly. She goes to get her stitches out tomorrow morning. She is all back to normal. The vet said that the lump was a tumor and it was malignent. The good is that it will not spread to her organs. The bad news is that it will likely come back in the same place and will have to be cut out again. So it sounds as if it is like a type of skin cancer.

    Well I am off for now.

    Type at you all soon.


  6. Within 10 minutes of coming home, I was sitting on the floor and Caffrey collapsed onto my lap and had another seizure. This one was really bad and long, it lasted about 3 minutes. I have read on different sites that if they go beyond 5 minutes they'll probably die. That really freaks me out - he's still just a baby at 5 years old.

    First off......how is Lanie?? Is she feeling better??

    Nothing worse that having a load of yucky clothes and your washer goes on the fritz. :tantrum:

    How is Caffery now?? Cheyenne's vet put her on phenabarbitol everyday. They are going to check her system the next time I take her in to get her stitches out to see if she has enough there so she won't have another seizure.

    Give Lanie and Caffery a hug for me!!!

  7. Chicago GMCL's have you seen this post? Gerard Butler joins Untouchable prequel

    First I am excited because I loved The Untouchables with Kevin Kostner and Sean Connery! And second, they filmed part of the original Untouchables in Chicago, so I would imagine they will do the same with this one! :bonk:

    That is all I am going to say for now! ;)

    Hey Pat I was thinking the same thing this afternoon when I read it. :funnyface::funnyface:

    I just got home from work and boy am I bushed!!!! I got to work by myself from 5pm until 9pm. I really enjoyed it because I was busy and it made the time go by faster.

    I'm really getting good at writting on cakes. I must have written on at least 6 of them tonight.

    Type at you all soon!!


  8. I am going to make this my new life quote......

    Nowadays 80%

    of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

    Bless Andy Rooney!!!! He is a keeper!!

    From a BB 40 something W. :angel2:

  9. Paulette....No wonder you have been MIA for so long!! You have been one busy little beaver!!

    I am really proud of Ethan! I hope that his composition was recorded cause I would love to hear it sometime.

    I am SO sorry to hear about your friend's son. It is such a terrible situation over there. Please tell her that I am praying for her, her son and her family.

    PM whenever you have time. You really DO need Vegas don't you!!!!

    Cassie I hope you feel better soon. It is aweful when you can't taste anything.


  10. PatK I am sorry that your daughter did not get the nomination. I am glad she took it so well. She is a trooper.

    AWWWW.......strong thighs a nice butt, that you can squeeze :cunning: , and a good Amaretto Stone Sour (that's my drink)!!!

    I think every job has it's own drama. But "the office" is the ultimate.

    Stacie I wish I could go to "Fabulous Las Vegas" but it wasn't meant for me either. Again take lots and lots of pictures!!!!

    Trix did you have to do jury duty or something???

  11. I am going to take a couple of posters to work and hang them on the bulletin board in the cart coral. I know it isn't much but I am somewhat disturbed by all of this.

    I agree with PatK that it is a surreal thing to see someone that you know sitting on a television show talking about something that you think couldn't happen to someone you know.

    I pray that she is found safe and sound. That she was just upset and went someplace where she does not have access to a tv or phone. :rose::rose::rose:

    I am glad your daughter was successful with her speech today. I just know she will be nominated.

    Well Cheyenne's surgery was a success. The vet had to send the mass away to be tested as it was not a fatty tumor. But he said it was not attached to anything so he is pretty positive that it was the only one. She is very wobbely and tired. Every time I get up she gets up and follows me, she looks so pitiful.

  12. Trixie...did you read the recent interview with Gerry? He talks about how American Airlines lost all their luggage!!! Opps!!! :embarassed:

    CAFRI interview

    Lost luggage......That is my worst nightmare when I travel.

    It would be a shame though if Gerry had nothing to wear....... :cunning::cunning:

    Pat Good luck vibes are going out to your daughter. I hope she gets the nominated.

    I am excited for all of you who are going to FABULOUS LAS VEGAS!!!!! You all have fun!!!!

  13. I just saw a report on the news about Lisa. Melanie G even spoke for a moment. I feel so bad for her and her family. They are saying that they are going to be searching the nearby retention pond and lake in the next day. I truly hope they find her ok. It has been 9 days.

    That is just aweful. I wish there was something I could do for them.

    I hope they find her.

  14. ladies...

    if you have some free time on Sunday nights around 10pm my time you should check out a show called bloodties. The vampire dude in it is really hawt. No Gerry, mind you, but he comes in a close third or fourth.


    I will have to check that out. I am a "SUCKER" for a vampire movie or show.

    I am watching LOST right now. I am about to give up on that show. It is pi$$ing me off!!!

  15. Kelly, WTG on the class. I saw an article or read somewhere that woman in her 80's or 90's is about to graduate from college. When asked what the motivation for going to college was she said it was just because she likes to learn. Now that is motivation.

    Hey there, Terra, Trixie, & Miklyn!

    I'm just watching Criminal Minds. Anyone else ever watch it?

    I'm watching Criminal Minds too......BOY IS IT A CREEPY ONE!!!!! :scared::scared:

  16. Howdy girls,

    It was another beautiful day.

    Has anyone heard anymore on Melanie's cousin?? I haven't been able to catch any news in the last couple of days. I SO hope and pray everything turns out good for her and her husband. I can not begin to imagine what they must be feeling.

    Miklyn good luck at your sales meeting.

    I would like to Thank all who are sending good vibes and prayers Cheyenne's way. She has become such a strong part of my family. She is my confidant when I need someone to talk too and my companion when no one else wants to walk with me.

    I did something today I thought I would never do. I signed up for a college course. It is Microsoft office. It starts at the end of August and goes until December and the great thing is, it is only 5 minutes from my home.

    This is something I've wanted to do for a long time and today while my son was at the GC Workforce I took the initiative and signed up.
