I was up a little over 3# for the month. Not good, but not surprised with all my camping and going out with friends and family.

No food allergies. Just the grass family allergies. Will see the doc next week for more input.
No mowing or haying for me.

Shoot, now you can't help mow or hay! And you have perfect orders from your Dr to prove it. Poor Gary, lol.

I hate to keep complaining but my shingles are still sooooo painful! I thought I was better a couple of days ago and then BAM here it comes again. I put in a pretty bad night last night and some difficult times today.

On a good note, my DD came and took pics of our formal dining room and posted it on C-list. And sold it!!! It's a really large set and takes a good-sized dining room to be able to have it all fit. We were fully expecting to have to end up donating it some thrift store, so we are soooo happy!! We're taking her out to dinner wherever she wants!! I'm sure going to miss it though. It was so pretty, I just enjoyed looking at it. This is the one my friend gave me a few years ago when she downsized. I told her my dilemma and asked her if she'd like it back to gift to somebody else and she told me no and to just do whatever I needed to do with it. She's also moving into our new co-op so she totally understands the space problem. Whew, I'm so happy she felt that way. Now I have a set of china to try to get rid of. 5 piece place setting, service for 12, white on white. And I love it! But no place to put it now and impractical to use for everyday dishes.

Yup, I brought my Zyrtec with me. . Less bladder frequency.

Sandy: Hurray for your dd selling your dining room set. I know someone would want those dishes, too.

Oh no on your shingles!!! Stop hurting sandy!

Brett and his gf see each other 3 times a week. so far so good. He met her grandparents last Sunday. Must be serious. Lol.

Oh...I keep not wanting to get involved in the Brett thing, but I am quite hopeful. I want him to be loved by someone worthy. And vice-versa. THERE. I SAID IT!

Sandy I'm so sorry you're still hurting. I can't imagine anything you could have done further. I pray you feel better as the days go on, my friend.

I am a fairly new fan of Craigslist. DD just sells whatever she wants and usually makes more than she paid. I've sold a couple of things and am very pleased.

So happy for Brett. I think you're smart for praying for God's will. Sometimes that's hard when things look "so good". Smart mama for sure!

Cindy, I feel like your little bee!! But I'd rather be busy than bored. Lol.

Sometimes C-list scares me but I always act with caution every time I have somebody come over to my house. Still scary sometimes.

Hi Carolyn, did you mean to text me on fb with a picture? It didn't come through, but I thought maybe you'd been hacked? Please check your account.

Dying my hair..I put some mascara on my white stripe this am..LOL..Time to color.

Another warm day..Took my Zyrtec-D..I think it makes life livable, but still feel the allergies.



This is funny..I knitted a sweatshirt type of thing for the baby shower this am...One of the ladies who came is a judge at the county fair this week..She wanted to take the sweater and enter it into the fair..So, she did..It is not perfect, but looks cute from a distance..

How fun to have a fair entry! You know we're going to need a picture...

I hate how hot it is. I know it's early days in August but I won't be sad to see it gone!

Debby I think you were right to ask. Don't worry, I'm sure Carolyn wasn't worried at all about your asking.

Carolyn I forgot to tell you. One time at my hair place, I bought what looked like a tube of mascara. I always have my eyebrows dyed when I have my hair dyed, but it doesn't last, and sometimes it doesn't even "take". My eyebrows are SO grey!

The tube advertised itself for eyebrows AND for grey hair between dyings. (sp?)
I've used it only a very little bit. Feels weird. LOL

I have bought a few of those stripe cover up products too. Some are ok, some, not so much. And my eyebrows rarely take color! I wonder what's up with that?

Yes, pics please!

I'm not an Olympics person. I WANT to want to watch them, but I just don't have it in me.

Good to know I don't have the only hard to color eyebrows!

I agree... don't watch any sports.

My eyebrows are really hard to dye too... parts work, others don't... I use mascara to cover the white. What do you gals do?

I don't do anything except keep trying to color them. I'm from that generation that overplucked so luckily, maybe, mine are sparse anyway. And my bangs help hide them.

Well in my reading I've found that gabapentin tends to cause weight gain, like i need any help during camping season. Ugh. Shingles are still not playing nice!

As white as my stripe is down my part, my eyebrows are still dark but I would definitely color them if they went white or grey.

We watch a little. Do love the gymnastics though.

Until I started greying, I was a natural blonde (thanks dad!).
So my eyebrows were mostly invisible anyway. My dark-haired mother begged me for years to enhance my brows. "They frame your face!" She said.
Plus I'm just not very hairy. So I rarely, if ever did any brow enhancement. Wow I wish I'd done it earlier.
Mothers are always right.

Mine are quite grey now.
