I'm Still Kicking... Sort Of!

Hey Guys, Yes Yanita did email me and I promised her that I would post during the holidays. Well, geesh! Both boys home, Christmas, New Years, football and family took everything I had left in me. I had quite a few days that I spent horizontal on the couch entertaining. Warren was in charge of most ...

Still Alive Here!

It's been a real long road back from this last attack. MS attacks everyone very differently. That's why it's so hard to diagnose and treat. After 25 years of maybes, I have been officially diagnosed. woo hoo! It's a little late for disability or anything like that. Oh well. life goes on! I had to wa...

Hospital Stay and Some Major Down Time

Hey folks, I'm in the hospital, due to be released tomorrow. I'm on my nieces laptop and basically, I'm talking, she's typing! The old MS kicked it's heals up big time last week. I have limited use of my hands right now, so work and typing are on the back burner for now. Not to mention a bunch of ot...

Dang! It's Snowing Outside! Time To Winterize!

OMG! I've lived here all my life and have only seen small amounts of snow fall between April and November. Maybe there really is something to this global warming? Anyway, Warren came home tonight and asked about the forecast. I told him slight rain if any in our area. Rocky needed to go out, let him...

RE: Military Roller Coaster!

LOL Greg! That's the number one reason reason Warren and I don't go out to dinner too often. He has the same idea as what is heart healthy food! The only time we go off that diet is 2 weeks over the holidays. Yanita, I have plenty of heart healthy recipes! I'd be glad to share with you! I do more wi...

RE: Military Roller Coaster!

LOL! Guys! I do know what you mean! Well, not actually first hand. Our oldest boy moved out years ago and he hasn't returned. Yanita, I'm doing my very best, but we can't eat out all the time. Warren does have health and heart issues, so we have to be careful. I've been cooking heart healthy since R...

RE: Belly Board Question

Hi mp183, Repairing belly board is much different that repairing belly material. They are two very different products! I have the belly board and it's very difficult to get a good, decent repair. I would not use the landscaping material, yes it breathes, but it's not really as sturdy as other produc...

RE: under belly

Hello, sounds like you have major problems with the home! I hate to be negative, but you're looking at more than just repairing the underbelly! First, I would try to re-negotiate tech lease opt agreement, to include all repairs! Like Yanita mentioned, the leak needs to be fixed, or you need to make ...

RE: Tie. . . downs?

I agree with Yanita, JD and Harry. Your local codes play a big part on how your tie downs are installed. These are both very important for both your home and your insurance policy! I know out here our tie downs are for both high winds and have some sort of a earthquake thing attached. Can't think of...

Military Roller Coaster!

As most of you know, both Ryan and Daniel are now in the Army. All I can say is that this a really new life for me LOL! As most parents these days, we are so used to being connected with our children. When they go military, you sort of revert to snail mail when that can happen during basic and AIT t...

RE: DANCING WITH THE STARS

I don't have much free time to watch this year! Most of my time this time of night is either delegated to writing the boys, or I'm busy working on their room and the guest bathroom. Not to mention we look like were going to have a really early Winter here, so yard work when I should be cooking dinne...

RE: I'm an evil mom, I'm making my son earn his keep ;)

Hi Jaie, I brought all the boys up to to pitch in whenever help was needed! I taught them how to repair just about anything around the house. I taught them how to landscape. At the same time, I taught them how to wash dishes, clean their clothes and iron them also! My boys were up on roofs doing rep...
