We will have no extra kids this weekend, so far. Brian is gone for 2 weeks so it will be just me, Jake and Polar. Quiet indeed. Still gloomy days with little sun and rain/snow mix. The boys have been hunting and yesterday there was a partridge in my back yard. Took a pic so Jake would believe me. He said I would starve if I was a mountain man because I didn't kill it. Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

Hello!
So, long time no chat! Sorry about that, been very, very busy with life, Skyrim and well, did I mention LIFE! But all is pretty well over all. I'm a much bigger fan of REAL books, but so many author friends can't be sending out hard copies, they don't make any money as it is! Plus my bf is a HUGE techno junkie so he's the one who gets me gadgets. I have to admit, having one that has it's own light and is easy to fall asleep with without worry about ripping a page is kinda nice. But no, I won't give up any of my hard copies EVER and I still get new ones when I can. Though that's been awhile. So, a few weeks ago (notice when I last logged into FC) I took money I had started to save for a new xbox360 and bf donated some more and my son and I went down to a local game store and I got a great deal on a used xbox to play Skyrim on. So, been really lost in that world. Chrome can be such a pain, I know, we have our moments indeed. I can't print coupons either, GRRRR! Oh, Gobi-Wan passed away on the 15th. We are all so very saddened, that fin was way, way cool. Loki is really bummed, they had their games they played through the glass. Well, life is pretty good. I don't get PT till this Friday. My son's surgery was cancelled cuz insurance said he waited too long to get it taken care of so he has to have PT first and see if that will solve the problem. He didn't want surgery anyway, every one we know who's had it has had to have it repeatedly anyway. His dad is one of those. So, I'll have a busy Nov with docs, PT and other appts, and then we'll see what happens about my issues. Not doing so great with the diabetes, I'll be looking into getting a different med when I see the doc again for it. No matter what I do, I can rarely keep it low enough, and I'm sick of eating the things I'm supposed to, missing out on things I used to, doing a LOT more walking and moving about and always feeling crappy with high numbers. I can count on one hand how many perfect days I've had with the sugar levels. I keep a log and it's just making me sad! But like my family says, the first year really is the hardest to get adjusted, and not to worry cuz it's just a balancing act and a hard one the first year. Otherwise all is well. Luv, hugs and miss you!

Not suppose to have any extra kids. Brian will be heading home, just the family home. Bill has been doing some hunting and I am sure they will be out hunting this weekend. Quite frosty this morning.

How is Tyler doing with the training? Polar is slowly getting better, she is still a pup and loves to play. She has been hauling around some big bones from a moose that the neighbor gave her. Had to carry one all the way to the mail and on our way back a big raven was trying to get her other one, she was not impressed. Been cool around here, Brian stayed at his friends camp last night. My friend dropped off my container that I had given her lasagna for her lunch and got a refill since I cooked some last night. Yes I did manage to get my container cupboard cleaned and will work on some more today. Take care. Dot

You are probably an excellent cook. Besides chili always tastes better the second day. I cooked up a pot of stew and the boys cooked up some partridge. Gets real cool at night and we got no more snow so that was good. Got to get my butt in gear and clean up the pond once it warms up again. Hope you have a nice sunday, take care, Dot

It got cooler last night and then the rain turned to snow. Just a trace of it on the ground this morning. Jake and his buddy stayed up most the night and are just coming back to life now. My quiet morning is over. I got some stuff to pick up in the yard before we get any more of the white stuff. Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

Jake had his friend over and they played some xbox and then went to the park. Another friend came over after supper last night. Tomorrow I will cook a turkey for us two. Hope I can get out today and do some yardwork because it is suppose to rain tomorrow. A little frosty this morning. Hope you have a nice day. Dot

Hello!
So, FC being down a week was icing on a cake. I had read about 55-60 books on my Nook, was getting ready to get all the reviews done (I highlight and note while I read) when the worst thing could happen did...My Nook died! OMG!!! So, bf had gotten me a full replacement warranty, so we thought no big deal, he'll go get me the replacement...turns out Office Max (or Depot? I don't remember, it's why he does these things for me hehe) anyway, they don't carry Nook any longer so I got a very nice Kindle Paperwhite...which has none of my Nook notes, or books etc etc. We do keep a database so all the books are on it, just now have to hope that Calibre will turn the epubs into mobi's so I can do some re-reading and get back to reviews. Since I haven't done any in a few months, it was already to be a bit of a chore but I was prepared. Now, not so much! Then after getting the new eReader, we discover our Wifi thingy died! So, have a new reader, but no way to load off the 'net so I can't register it and start loading it. Plus, it doesn't come with any space to add a chip to expand how much it will hold like the Nook did GRRRR so will only have 2gb at a time, will have to move books on and off as I read. Well, it'll keep my geek side busy HAHA. Had my first PT appt, the therapist is very, very nice and very, very gentle and yet it still made me cry a bit. OUCH. I should have a plan and get my first real appt next week. I'm pretty nervous but hopefully it'll be better than expected. I'm not too convinced it'll make a lot of difference though, and I'm also prepping mentally for the 'pain management' doc I'll end up seeing. Not that I don't have faith, it's just that I've had all kinds of people do things to help my neck and nothing does anything but make it only feel better for a little while then come back with a vengeance to let me know NOPE. Massages, electrodes, gentle stretches etc etc. So yea, been there, done that. Besides, how do you fix torn muscles anyway? The bulges on the base of my neck and the top of my shoulder only get bigger when messed with, never smaller. Heavy sigh. Well, at least it's being dealt with! My son will be having back surgery on the 4th, he should be home the same day too. And he's the first on the list so we'll be at the hospital at 5:30a. UGH, that's so early! Dogs are doing well. Maus has no more infections, no stones in kidney or bladder and is finally feeling a bit better. Her tests went well, and they want us to keep an eye on her incontinence and if it's reoccurring still, they'll help with that too. Well, this is probably too big to fit. HUGS!

Hello!
I'll get to petflow next month, already got a bunch of stuff this month thanks to a little windfall. So, I've been on the hunt for a new xbox as ours is older, dead and not sure it's worth replacing the harddrive since it's the style that overheats and that's what killed it in the first place. We got the fan thingy for it months before it died, and I kept wrapped ice bottles on and around it while I played but alas, it wasn't enough. So then today my nephew and I are chatting and he tells me about an xbox that looks like R2D2 and so now I have to decide if it's worth paying double for the fan factor or if I'll just go for a regular one...You never know, I may hit the lottery! Vernacular is such a fun thing, did I ever tell you when we went to N.Dakota to see bf's family that it took me 3 weeks to quit talking like I was from Fargo? My stepson thought it was HILARIOUS hehe. Glad you're going to get a break. I'm hoping tonight to get some decent sleep, this lack of is starting to affect my memory, and it wasn't that great of one to begin with! hehe. Well, hugs and kisses, you Belle you! YEEHAW! hehe

It was a beautiful day. Me and Polar got some exercise going for lots of walks. The boys are fishing tonight, so it is nice and quiet. Been busy doing some work in the yard and enjoying the sun. Hope I am all ready for our trip this weekend. Bill should be home tomorrow, have to make arrangements for Polar to stay at my parents and for her to feed the fish. I guess all the piling of the wood is good exercise, I can certainly use it, been lazy from this wet weather we were getting. Hope you have a nice night, darn fish channel keeps getting me lost at sea, so I can't seem to send my messages. Take care, Dot

It is suppose to be a nice warm day today. Brian has been catching some fish and now we have lots for supper tonight. Me and Polar took a nice long walk yesterday. She ran away and got into the neighbors yard and was playing with their dog and then later she went down the road and played with another dog. She is venturing further away and so today she will get on the chain. I will do some chores outdoors today, since it will be nice. Take care, Dot

A crock pot is one thing that I don't have. I know I would love you, guess I better put that on my wish list. My parents always had cast iron pot that was great for throwing on the stove all day, used to love cooking with that. We got more rain, never stops here for long. Then it will turn to snow soon, so rain is good for now. Wow, missed the goldies in the house, Polar loves to watch the fish in the tanks. Hope you have a nice day, take care, Dot

Hello!
Had a busy but very fun Saturday. Bf and I took dogs to a dog park, lots of fun there, and Elfi found the stinky mud puddle again, her and a yellow lab got totally disgusting. Elfi was rather surprised when I took her out of the park to the watering station and hosed her off hehe. Maus was inside the park still with bf, less than 10 feet away but as I'm apparently invisible behind chain link, she made quite a fuss and some hilarious noises that led other dogs to come over and let her know it was OK hehe. Then spend a small fortune at an orowheat bread store that we frequent. 33 bucks there buys a lot of stuff! Got things for my son's lunches, and 2 kinds of rye bread for me, plus lots of english muffins, etc etc. Oh, and some yummy jelly's that come in those jars with handles for drinking from later. Scored heavily at the local pet store, as I had a big bag of dog food coming for free, plus needed a bag of cat food and got one free cuz I was at my 10th one, plus I got to sneak out of the house without Elfi so Maus could go in and get shown off, they all LOVED her and she was so cute so got lots of treats and loves hehe. They are both totally worn out now so am enjoying a quiet moment.You should do a 'tell a friend' on petflow to me, I just checked out their site, lots of deals, I can see why you are hooked. Well, need to decide if going to bed soon is too soon. I'm not sleeping much and think I'm about to do my famous crash and burn cycle. I sure hope so, tired of no sleep! Averaging 2 hours a night for the past month is really taking it's toll! HUGS!

Wet here again. the boys took the fish out of the pond for me. It was thundering like crazy and we got some rain. Now they are gone hunting. They made up some partridge fingers and used the rest of the meat for some noodle soup. That soup hit the spot and was good when you got a cold. I had laundry and some cleaning to do. Will work on the pond this week, if polar doesn't steal all the plants by then. Hope you have a nice night, take care, Dot

Hello!
Maus and Elfi had much fun at a dog park this morning. I got lots of exercise too so that was nice. Elfi, of course, found a mud puddle to splash in...so much for her nice bath hehe. Only the front legs, chest and face got dirty and it came off easy enough but still! She's like a kid ALL THE TIME. Maus is so funny, she likes to let other dogs know that I'm her MaMa and that they'd better not expect much attention from me hehe. Mo was the same way. Just get between me and whatever dog is looking for that extra bit of luv hehe. Have to get Maus some tags, county license, etc this week. Looks like she's here to stay hehe. Elfi is the family dog but Maus is a total MaMa's BaBy, let me assure! Bf says he'd like if she would at least pretend to listen to him hehe. I keep trying to tell her he pays the bills and that dads need love too but once she gets her loving from him after work, she then reminds him it's all about me. As it should be, we all agree HAHAHA. Meds, ugh. I am actually to take the Neurontin 3x a day at 300mgs a pill! That's the second med that I'm maxed on for a daily dose. Jeesh! Had no idea I was such a mess! Well, the Neurontin is at least a bi-polar help too so that saves me extra meds for that and the neuropathy. I hate numb toes, it's very, very annoying. The feet go in degrees of numb/tingle, sometimes it's all over, other times just toes. At least it's now not as painful or annoying, though it's still noticeable. Loki is enjoying being in charge of the dogs, and Goose is in charge of us all hehe. Oh, found a great deal on dog beds on Groupon of all things, so will be ordering tonight. It'll come to 50 bucks for the 2 beds after my welcome coupon of 10 bucks off plus free shipping! Wow! Hopefully they'll hold up. They look like good ones, and I know how to get more foam from our local Mill Ends Fabric warehouse anyway. Actually, am about to get the dining room chairs done. They need foam badly, they're 26 years old now and flat! And I'll have to get some covers too, which will make them all easier to clean, and look fancy too hehe. Glad Tyler is doing so well. I'm still a bit worried about Maus' bladder, and nervous about the kidney test she'll get in a bit but hopefully she'll be on the mend. After a month with her, she's only slept through one night! I'm having a hard time with migraines from the extreme lack of sleep, but she's worth it and hopefully will soon be perfectly healthy soon. Well, I gots the yadayada chore list myself to get done, HUGS TO YOU ALL
