Thanks everyone. :manyheart I'm in a better place about the whole situation now.....it just took a little bit along with a whole lot of tears & screams.

Eli's eczema already is improving after only one soaking & slathering of the Cera Ve cream......the pharmacy didn't even fill the steroidal ointment yet so having such an improvement with just the OTC cream is amazing. :clap The doc did say he'd outgrow it, but when no one knows.....everyone is different. I will just be glad when he's not digging himself bloody. We were waking up in the morning to a bloody head because he was digging while he was asleep & that was with no nails because I cut them everyother day due to his itching. :eek

Well, i'm off for the night.........have a great night. :ghug

Good morning!

Tab- I'm sorry that you have to go through this family drama!:hug Good news, though that the cream seems to have helped Eli after only one use!:) Hang in there- and any time you need to vent you know we are all here for you:hug

Judy- Saw that the Rangers lost, but the Yankees won! Tonight the Devils play- and so do the Yankees, so I guess my 'last' button will be getting a workout tonight!:lol

Linda- Hope that you got some rest last night! You have accomplished so much in such a little amount of time. Should be interesting to see how you are supposed to cook when you pack up all 'your' pots/pans!

Julie, Marisa, Val, Mary, Cindy and the rest of the house-hope you all have a good day

Morning ladies

Jude
Did you find your Mojo yet, or it it still hiding ? Did you get any more of the baby squares made ?

Val
Did you get a chance to work anymore on your afghan yesterday ?

Linda
Hope you were able to get a good rest last night and maybe some peace of mind knowing all your work is done . What a big job, huh ?

Mary
I hope you got your work all done yesterday and got a little free time to do what you wanted .


Marisa
I hope your May 10th event goes well and you reel in a whole bunch of new people. If you do the one free visit thing then hopefully you will get lots of interested parties that will turn into permanent patients .


Tab
Wow, what to say ? THAT is one odd situation . Why in the world your brother's wife thought it appropriate to put photos of herself online in such a "lack of taste " photo, I'll never know. It's great if she wanted to lose weight to feel better ,but stripping half nekkid and plastering that photo around was done in very poor taste . You as a parent had every right to block the photo. This lady is supposed to be a family member that gives your boys a good influence .
It's stupid if she is claiming Shenandoah sent threatening letters online. Doesnt she know they can find that stuff on people's computers ? If it's not tru,then she doesnt have a leg to stand on .
It's sad that you not only have to go to court over it,but have to hire a lawyer, PLUS she is involving the entire family in her dispute . I'm sorry your brother is siding with her on that part and not allowing you access to see your niece . I hate it when people put kids in the middle of their adult disputes. NOT GOOD .
Sure hope you can find a way to get the issue resolved before the actual court date thing. Doesnt life get really complicated when one thing like this turns in such a huge battle ?
**Sure hope the meds work for Eli so he doesnt itch so much. Doesnt sound very pleasant !

Joanne
Sorry I must have missed your morning post. I think we were replying both at the same time. Hope your day speeds by quickly !


Not a lot on tap here today .VERY wet and grey this AM ... we were supposed to have bad storms last night,but if we did, Ididnt hear them . I think it was just rain . Hope it gets sunny out today !
Steph asked if I'd mind taking a bakeshop tour today,checking on cakes to see if any of them would do Cam's birthday cake with Lego guys on it. I doubt they will --they usually wont directly copy any toy item that has a copyright ,but they can sorta freehand draw it ,rather than using the machine or whatever it is that can copy an exact photo .
Anyhow, since she works a LOT ,she asked if I'd mind being the cake -shopper ?
That's like asking a homeless person if they want a blanket in the winter .
Of COURSE I will go cake-shopping. And I do need to buy a SLAB from each bakeshop to test them,right ? ( Although I already KNOW what they all taste like) :tup:cake:tup

Hope everyone has a great day !

'morning, peeps!
Rainy this AM and some thunder....it's already humid and the weather will be warming up till it gets to about 80 by Friday.

Oh, well, the cool weather couldn't last forever:lol

I guess he thinks he can handle everything.

It's sad....
I hope you had a good night!

Thanks everyone. :manyheart I'm in a better place about the whole situation now.....it just took a little bit along with a whole lot of tears & screams.

Ever try those baby outfits with the mitten-type attachments to the sleeves??

Jude
Did you find your Mojo yet, or it it still hiding ? Did you get any more of the baby squares made ?
No real mojo, but decided to plod along on the baby ghan. I made more saltines yesterday and have been attaching them and taking care of the tails as I've been going along. The colors do look pretty together.
Maybe it's time for another graph square - or the butterfly shawl. I just need to have some quiet time when Lucy isn't antagonizing Sparkie....right under my feet, which is where they like to play fight! Babies...:lol

Not a lot on tap here today .VERY wet and grey this AM ... we were supposed to have bad storms last night,but if we did, Ididnt hear them . I think it was just rain .We got the thunder and buckets of rain at 5:15AM!

Oh...cake shopping - yummo!!
You're right about the copyright thing - though I'm sure they can probably do a good representation freehand.


Joanne, I hope your day speeds by - enjoy the channel surfing tonight! The weather should be fine for the Yankee game - I think.

Hi to everyone else...BBL today!:hug

Good morning Housemates!

I've started the Bama houndstooth ghan because it's due at the end of the month for a graduation present. The Bama football field is not due until August. I'm working on the A in the girl's name. I'll then attach the letters and start the houndstooth above the lettering.

Tab - CeraVe is considered the best cleaning/moisturizing system right now. When I had my store, I could not keep it on the shelf. It is a good product. Glad it's helping Eli. Sorry about your sil causing such a mess. Lifting you and family up in prayer!:hug

Linda - I'm hoping you had a great evening relaxing and doing what you wanted.

Joanne - You must be in sports Heaven. Hopefully, today will go fast for you and you can get back to channel surfing.

Julie - Hoping you had a restful night and feeling good today. Have fun cake shopping. Don't sample too much!:devil

Judy - I wish I was going yarn shopping with you. Enjoy your day!

Wishing the rest of the Housemates a great day!

BBL.

Good morning everyone. Sunshine and mostly blue skies so far today. The guys will be working on the deck some more today. They hope to finish it up fairly quickly although to my eyes there's still quite a bit to do. Makes me mad that John is having them do a cover up of what's wrong with the deck instead of fixing it the way they should, but a savy buyer can still see what's wrong if they poke their head underneath the deck at the far end. And they can see part of it just by walking around it. Some of the plywood is already separating too and it's been down less than a week. This could all come back to bite him in the butt and a part of me hopes it does. I know that's nasty, but I've shopped for homes too many times and don't like this kind of thing. It makes me angry and was enough to make me veto a house without ever going inside it when I was house hunting.

Thanks everyone. :manyheart I'm in a better place about the whole situation now.....it just took a little bit along with a whole lot of tears & screams.
Hey, we all need a safe place to vent now and then. Do so whenever you need to do it. :hug

Have you tried putting the little booties with the cuffs on his hands so the he can't actually do more than rub his head?

Oh, what a wonderful task! Have fun! When you first said having the Lego guys on it I thought that you meant putting some actual Lego figures on the cake and I would think that that would be doable. Just make sure that the Legos have been thoroughly cleaned and put them on the cake or around it. Just a thought as an alternative. I know that you have to be very careful with copyright issues although I wouldn't think it would that much of an issue with a cake.

I spent last night watching TV with the heating pad on my back and shoulder. I even had time yesterday to crochet for the first time in a long time. I got about 1/4 of the center panel of a Celtic knot shawl done which felt wonderful. I also finished up another prayer shawl and hid the tails on a preemie hat. And that's in addition to giving Kim a shower, putting away two loads of laundry, and running stuff here there and yonder in the morning.

I had nightmares for a while last night but finally went into a deep sleep that was restful. My hands hurt something awful this morning, but hopefully the pain meds will kick in soon and they'll let up. The downstairs no longer feels like my space with most of my things gone, which is probably part of why I had the nightmares. Oh well, I'll soon be able to have my things where I want them and won't have to live by someone else's rules.

Hope you all have a good day. :manyheart

Thanks everyone for the support. :ghug

Julie~Enjoy cake eating shopping, sounds like my kinda shopping trip. :)

Judy & Linda~Elijah is at the age where he has his hands in his mouth 99% of the time so the mits are out because he'd just eat them making them soggy. :lol Last night was less itchy than others so I think the cream is working & i'm sure the steroid ointment will help alot today. Thanks for the suggestions though. ;)

Well, i'm off.....have a great day.

Hi Everyone :morcoffee <---that's me, only I'm at work & have managed to make it until now which is lunch time...hoping for smooth sailing to 5pm so I can go home & rest. Attempted to sleep on the couch last night because the hubbo is sick & had crashed in the center of the bed. I didn't really want his cooties anyways. I never did actually sleep thanks to a horrible headache that found its way down my neck & shoulders. I thought about taking some left over pain meds from the dentist but was afraid I'd oversleep. Pssh. I wish! I was awake when the alarm went off & since I didn't sleep it feels more like an extention of Monday...just one looooong Monday...instead of Tuesday. The headache is mostly gone now...I may go for a little walk towards the end of my lunch hour & get fresh air.

Linda ~ sounds like you & I had similar nights, I'm sorry!! Hope you are feeling better & the downtime on the heating pad last night helped.

Valerie ~ whoot, have a ball working on the Bama-ghan! Sounds like a very cool grad present.

Judy - Booo-hisss to the rain & thunder!! I hope the weather clears up to something more enjoyable, but please please don't send that humidity down my way...it'll be here soon enough. Ugh. LEAST favorite thing about life in Virginia.

Julie ~ have fun tasting, err, shopping for cakes!!

Tabitha ~ oh girl, deja'vu. My best friend (like a sister & my kids call her their Aunt) had gastric bypass about 7 years ago to drop weight for invitro, she lost 150 pounds and her mind for about 4 solid years. The invitro didn't take, she divorced her wonderful husband & followed the new attention from other men in bars for quite awhile. She never even came to wish me goodbye when I moved across country because she had a date with a guy 10 years younger. I am happy to say that she is back to "normal" (whatever that really is), she's even been to visit me here in VA, has since left CA and settled in Oklahoma with a wonderful man & expecting her first baby in July. All of that to say - losing alot of weight can really affect peoples psyche & I'm sorry to see it happening in your family. It can be destructive. :bang

And a warm hello & happy day to everyone else! :hug

Hi, Kelly. It does indeed sound like we had similar night even if for different reasons. My joints are still really achy today but much better than yesterday.

I've reached the halfway point on the center section of the Celtic Knot shawl. It feels so good to be able to do some crochet again. I've got a small box of yarn that's not packed away so I have some to play with now that the worst of the packing is done. :D

Good afternoon housemates :hi

Sorry I didn't get in sooner, but I'm trying to get through my 'to-do' list of things to prepare for next weeks mall event :bounce Plus today is bill day, which I still need to take care of :eek Not much going on other than all that stuff :lol

Linda - I feel the same way about John and his deck shenanigans! :angry And if the house does sell with that unnoticed, then it'll come back at him later....karma, karma, karma....maybe the one he buys will have it's own issues two fold :think (I'm having those nasty thoughts with you :devil ) I'm so glad to hear that you were able to watch tv and crochet last night :yay :clap Hopefully you won't have any more nightmares :hug

Tab - Glad to hear that Elijah is improving with the cream already :yay

Joanne - I hope isn't too insanely crazy for you today :hug

Julie - Oh boy! A cake tour :bounce Such fun. I agree with Linda, maybe the copyright won't be such a big issue....after all, you'll be eating the evidence :lol I'm sure hoping that this event and the free gift certificates will drive people in and even if some people don't turn in to permanent patients themselves, maybe they'll at least send someone else here :xfin I'm also doing a drawing for a cervical pillow :D

Judy - Hmmmm, maybe you should go to a little yarn shop and do some petting :think

Val - So now you have 2 bama ghans in the works? WTG!

Kel - Oh geez, I sure hope you make it through the day and are feeling better :hug I also hope that dh is feeling better too. You better try to go to bed early tonight :yes

Hi guys

I did my cake-shopping and found that yes, they do enforce copyright rules ,so no Lego cake, although the one store said they can put ninja guys on the cake in the colors they are on the show . I guess they have a lady there who is pretty good at doing a freehand drawing with frosting. It costs 10 bucks extra for that . I'd think that job would be a PERFECT career choice . Don't want all that frosting going to waste if you mess up,right ?
The other store said NOPE ,you buy whatever cakes we have or you CAN stick Lego guys on the cake when you get it . I dropped a note to Steph since she is at work,so we'll see what she thinks . And I DID buy a small slab of cake .I can;t find it for the life of me .... dont know where it went . :think :D

Val
Didn't you say the houndstooth was also in red ? You'll have your share of red after 2 in a row with it !

Jude
Hope you soon get to find some new yarn . Do you have a project idea ahead of time, or will you find the yarn,THEN decide on a project ?

Linda
Sorry you slept so poorly . I agree, John shouldnt be covering up the house's flaws. He needs to repair them properly or list in the contract that it has those flaws,to be sold "as is " . Up here ,they now have a "Guarantee" you put on your house,that to your knowledge,everything is in repaired condition ,and if the buyer purchases a place with coverups ,like his deck, the NEW homeowner has a certain length of time to come back on the previous owner for damages .
I think once you get moved out ,you will have pleasant dreams, because you will be more at peace and your life wont be so hectic and demanding .


Tab
Thanks for stopping in. Keep us updated on yoru family situation. sure hope it all works out for the best. This girl may drop the whole thing or maybe the judge will toss it out .

Kel
Hope your head is better. I've had lots of those type in the neck and shoulders lately. My gosh,they are horrible,arent they ? I can actually hear my neck cracking when I move my head.
I think I need Marisa's services. If I were rich, I'd hire my airplane pilot to run over and pick her up to come help me out . AND I'd give her a big tip .

**** That's if I were RICH . Since I'm not, the best I could do is send her a bus ticket and make up a big VAT of gravy and bicsuits with CAKE as dessert . :D

Hi, again!

Judy - Booo-hisss to the rain & thunder!! I hope the weather clears up to something more enjoyable, but please please don't send that humidity down my way...it'll be here soon enough. Ugh. LEAST favorite thing about life in Virginia.

We had perfect weather this afternoon! Sat outside with my 2 furples for a while and read more of another of Robyn Carr's books - in between jumping up to discourage Lucy (13 mo old German shepherd) from going after the fuzzy honey bees buzzing the big white azaela! I don't want to find out she's allergic - happened to us 4 dogs ago when the poor dog caught a wasp or bee and his entire head swelled up! THAT was scary!
...and summers in NJ are always very, very humid! I detest summer.:P
I hope you have a good night!

Hi, Kelly. It does indeed sound like we had similar night even if for different reasons. My joints are still really achy today but much better than yesterday.

I've reached the halfway point on the center section of the Celtic Knot shawl. It feels so good to be able to do some crochet again. I've got a small box of yarn that's not packed away so I have some to play with now that the worst of the packing is done. :D

Nice!! What color this time?

Linda - I feel the same way about John and his deck shenanigans! :angry And if the house does sell with that unnoticed, then it'll come back at him later....karma, karma, karma....maybe the one he buys will have it's own issues two fold :think (I'm having those nasty thoughts with you :devil ) I'm so glad to hear that you were able to watch tv and crochet last night :yay :clap Hopefully you won't have any more nightmares :hug
Karma is a **tch

Judy - Hmmmm, maybe you should go to a little yarn shop and do some petting :think

I'm hoping to buy some new stuff...need to release the good endorphines, you know:lol
ANd tomorrow is the day:D

At least you got a couple of ideas...
Jude
Hope you soon get to find some new yarn . Do you have a project idea ahead of time, or will you find the yarn,THEN decide on a project ?

The yarn speaks to me first - at least in this case - then I'll decide what I'm going to do with it:lol
Esp since I don't have a project I need to do.

Kelly - I hope you've made it home and getting some rest. I hope you feel better soon.

Julie - The football field ghan is more crimson and the houndstooth is black and white with the girl's name in more of a cranberry red on white squares.. I'll probably trim it in the red as well. I'm making up the pattern from a picture of a cake the aunt posted on her facebook page.

Hi all,
Had a decent day at work although there was one looooong meeting this afternoon!!!

It was 75 and beautiful out when I left work. This morning- it was downpours and thunder! What a change.

Getting ready to settle in and finish the baby ghan- I started the border last night so should finish between channel switching!!

Have a good night!

Hi Ladies,

Linda, After all that packing and John's demands on you no wonder your having nightmares. Hope they were a one night thing. To bad he didn't get Lois and Sherri to help you much earlier. It would of been done sooner and you wouldn't be suffering half as much as you are. June can't be here soon enough. What a shame that he isn't fixing the house like he should before he sells it. Glad you enjoyed your dinner out with Lois and Sherri. I wonder how Kim feels about things. The way John is treating you. If she knows but can't stop him it has to be frustrating for her.
Hope you get a better nights sleep tonight.

Julie, Glad your headaches are getting better and the medicine is working for you. Good news about the test saturday night.
Glad things worked out and Cam was still able to come to your house. It wouldn't be fun having to holding to the same grounded rules as home. Lucky for us we haven't run into that yet. Although I did tell DD I thought she was being to hard on Maya once when I was there. And explained why I felt that way. Don't even remember what it was now. I think kids get spring fever just like adults do and it shows in there school work until someone catches it.
Awesome job taste testing cakes for Cam's birthday.

Joanne, The tunisian class sounds interesting. :clap for finishing the rr. It's beautiful! Really nice colors. :clap for spending time with Ryan and family time watching the games with DD and Ryan. The outfits for Ryan sound cute.

Mary, What kind of herbs are you going to grow? How big is your garden? Hope you see Luke soon.

Judy, Sounds like some cute things you picked up out shopping with your friend.

Faile, :clap for some spinning time. Your yarn sounds soft and pretty.

Cindy, It would be nice seeing a mama bear and her babies out and about. Glad you were on the other side of the water. Did she know you were around?

Val, :clap for the progress your making on your Bama ghan and starting your second one. :clap for a visit with family.

Marisa, It sounds like you had a fun weekend. :clap for another patient. I hope the mall is a big turn out and very successful for you.

Tab, So sorry for what your sil is trying to pull and for what it is doing to your family. Some people put should not be on facebook putting on there what they do.
Poor Elijah! Glad the new cream is working for him. My DD use to breakout with a bad rash and it turned out she was allergic to milk.

Kel, Hope your headache went away and you and your DH feel better. Hope you get a good nights sleep tonight.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! It was really nice seeing them. Maya called me the first thing in the morning to wish me a happy birthday. I had a nice relaxing day. We went out to the store and Dh wanted to get me a cake or cupcakes and I said no I didn't need any. We just sit around and did nothing all afternoon except I crocheted on the ghan for GS.
Yesterday I spent most of the day transferring crochet patterns from my documents to a thumb drive. I'm probably 2/3's of the way done there. Have lots more under my favorites. My computer is old it's an xp and I don't want to have it crashing so I need remove stuff.
Today I got up and the internet wouldn't work. I spent all morning trying to figure out what was wrong. I have a modem and a router. The router wouldn't work and it was new in January. The modem worked and the internet worked if the router wasn't hooked up. I finally decided to leave it alone and came back to late this afternoon and did exactly what I did this morning and it worked first try. I guess it just needed a rest.
I had to call the cable company today. I opened the bill and are 12 month special was over. So I asked what they could do for me and I got a fair price for cable. I asked about dvr and she said it usually is $15 and I said I won't pay that much and she said she would give it to me for an extra $5. I said okay. So next tuesday the tech is coming out and installing it. I got a deal on that to.
Hubby starts drawing social security this month. GM pays there retirees there ss benefit if they retire early (30 years or more of service until you reach 62). This month they take it back so now we get two different pay days. I had to adjust the bill paying between the 2 checks. I'll get use to but I don't like it. I don't like changes.
I'm getting off now. I'm tired to. I woke up at 5 I thought my cell phone was ringing and it was off. I was dreaming about my MIL.
Have a good hump day! It is suppose to warm up this week can't wait.
Marlene

Jude
Have fun yarn shopping today . Hope you find something reallly pretty .


Linda
Hope you got more sleep last night .

Val
I was mixed up on your houndstooth pattern. I knew you mentioned red or maroon,so was thinking the whole pattern had that color on it . Bet it'll be pretty !

Marlene
Glad you had a nice birthday .Sorry you were having some computer and internet issues,but it sounds like they are all fixed now. I know what you mean about changes with paydays coming at different times. You have to totally redo your budget to have the right bills paid at the right time .


Not much new here today. It's grey right now but supposed to get nicer out . I need to go looking for a couple new lawn chairs .Ours are getting really worn out .

Hope you all have a real nice day today .

Went to bed early last night and slept much better. It's partly sunny and warm again today. Pulled out all my pots and pans and skillets and assorted other things yesterday. I've got another two boxes so far. Now it's pulling the rest of the things out so John can go through them when he gets home and decide what he wants to keep. I can have anything he doesn't want that I do and the rest goes to Goodwill or the trash.

I'm not really functional yet, but did read all the posts.

Julie, did you check out your stomach for the missing slab of cake? :lol :lol :lol

Kelly, I hope that you and DH are both feeling better by now. :hug

Marisa, it sounds like you have a lot of things going on for the mall event that should bring in more customers. Wishing you the best of luck. :hug

Hooray for reaching the halfway point of the week Joanne. I hated those loooong afternoon meetings when I was working in an office. They take up soooo much time at a time of day when I was never at my best.

Catch up with all of you later. Love you. :manyheart
