THANK YOU SO MUCH for the LOVELY Card !! I got it today ! IMAGINE MY SURPRiSE as I SMILED a lot as I walked it upstairs,,, than when I opened it,,, SO PLEASED !! SO TY MUCHLY !! i'd LOVE to attend the party going on !! WOOHOOOO !!!

U are working a TON GAL !! How do you do this???? I had to STOP at only age 32 (I LOVED my job) it was like NOT working,, though I was in management,, I also would work the floor,, inbetween paper work time. I tried as HARD as I could to do so a lot,, as much as possible,,,, while making sure,, all ran very smoothly,, and I was kinda good at it,,, and cos of that,, we had one of the smallest stores,,, yet,, a lot from the corporate office would come in to see "how does she do this"? to me,, it was all math,,,, if I ran things on a clock schedule,, this needs to be done by such and such a time,, than this,, and that,,, it all worked out very smoothly and I'd be able to CUT hrs !! WOOHOOO they loved that I was saving them $$$$ !! I did NOT mind running a register when we were expecting a storm,,,, though I shouldn't of been per my title,, but, yet that only made those I worked over,, to respect me more,, and so they worked that much harder,, the more items a cashier would scan,,, the faster the store worked,,,, faster cust's got out usually with a smile, for I INSISTED all be treated with TOTAL Respect, and care !!! So we had tons of repeated business,,,, it was soo much FUN !!! yester when I went down to get some groc's,,,, I saw the personnel cord. She was like "What HAPPENED To YOU"??? I said "well you were RIGHT,, I could NOT continue to work Carol, this is #18". We stood and talked a bit,, had I of stayed,,, I would of been there for 26 yrs,, which by then,, with more college classes,, degrees,,, I WANTED to AIM to be the store manager ! WOOHOOO !!! but that didn't work out,, and being disabled,, isn't ALL that bad. :) It given me time to work on my arts.,, to explore myself in ways I would not of,, to find courage to make the best of it. I wish we could help all on the team,, who are disabled,, to find that courage,, there's someone I am rather concerned about (Sorry can't say who),, but til they learn to love,, and respect themselves,, there's nothing I can do, but be encouraging,, which is often mistaken,, cos one when isn't well,, they take all positives and turn them into negatvies,, so SAD !!!

See ya in the "DAWG HOUSE" !! WOOF WOoF !! we DESERVE some T BONE STEAK GAL !!! #1 FINALLY on the Landing, and I THINK for week #4,,,, ,we also ended up being #1 on Fri,, whereas on the Landing we were # 4 ! YIKERS !

emoticon !! HI Mary !! The SCALE For you is again GOIND DOWN !!

What did you change around hon? For this is PAWSOME AWESOME ! NOT always "EASY" to do, but feels soooo GREAT huh?

FOr week #4, we are AGAIN doing the "LOST A LB" and I've asked Carrol to please put out an Email for ALL who have made it (and I need to add or very close) !! WOOHOOO GIRL !! ur doing so MUCH better !! SO HAPPY For you !!

Hey,, did you get a bad T storm today? LOL I got a call from a friend in northern CA, to WARN ME,,, there's one approaching our area !! LOL HOW FUNNY !!!! She can't be ANY FURTHER AWAY than I am,, and calls to warn me !! LOL LOL LOL !!

All I can do is shut off the AC (its a portable) and if the storm is severe unplug it,,, otherwise I FOOLISHLY leave it in,, for ALL it takes is for the building to be HIT ! AND IT HAS BEEN when I lived here back about 12 yrs ago,, and at that time,, I had shut OFF my puter,,, but I DID NOT unplug it,,, sure enough the modem and the board got FRIED TO DEATH when the building took a direct HIT !! We are the HIGHEST point in the area,,, us and a cross across the street,, so it's gonna hit one or the other. We are higher than most trees also. My friend Teah lives on the top floor,, I WISH I DiD !!!! I am only on the 2nd which is GREAT should there be an emergency,, and I can't get down. The firemen will find me RIGHT OFF !! We've been told "if it's safe, go out into the hallway stairwell,, and wait,, we WILL FIND YOU !" and if it's NOT Safe,,, "hang something out the window,,, and STAY LOW" ! High rise living,, hmmm INTERESTING !

CONGRATTERS AGAIN !

HI Mary !!

Update,,, my place is now FREE of the Bbugs !! OH PHEW !! I learned all I need to do is to STEAM them out !! YEAH !!! The fool upstairs STILL has NOT been worked on,,,, so they've given him as of last Mon,, one week,,, so this Mon,,, a few more days,, to get it CLEANED UPPED and ready,,, they want NOTHING on ANY Furniture,,, or IN any furniture,, which means a lot of bins,, for if one uses plastic bags,, they LOVE climging into them. THANKFULLY Karen and Te did this for me,,,,, I of course can't help,, being on complete bed rest. In this day and age,, those who get knee surgs,, and the worse of back surgs,, and they get to get RIGHT UP !!! So WHY NOT ME?????? If he's NOT clean on Mon,,, they will charge him 50 for a "cancellation' fee,, than cos I did a "wellness" check on him,,, I DO FEEL SO BAD for him,,, he's ALL bitten up,,,, horribly so,, also he's NOT doing ANY of his normal routine,, I hear very little from there,,,, these places are built well enough, but yeah the little I hear daily,, I am not hearing,,, so I KNOW he's very upset,,, for he's normally very scheduled,, its now I've known all along that he's Ok. I think he may of gotten rid of his TV,,,, if they went into it,, he could of just taken off the back,,and used a hair dryer,, but most do NOT know this,,,, and throw away EVERYTHING when in fact you need NOT to throw A THING !!! On electronics,, a hair dryer will do,, or any item you can't steam. I did as Te did,, and bought a steamer,, as long as he has them,,, I am steaming both my couch and bed on a daily basis. That'll keep me SAFE and I DO NOT need to move,, for after this,, I'll do so weekly. Once his are gone.

Hey Mary,, R U UP to this weeks Mini Challenge on losing a LB with us? I HOPE SO !! WOOHOOO!!! I did ALL I COULD this week,, cos on MOn,, my weight had gone UP,,, so I went to TOWN to LOSE it,, and one more,,,, so today,,, Thurs,, I DID IT !! I am SOOO EXCITED that I've ALREADY done my weigh in ! LOL hows THAT for excitement? I've asked Carrol to plz REPEAT this challenge again next week. Remember if ur not losing,, shift around some of ur food,,,, so ur eating stuff with more cals,,, with 120 mins of exer,, you can easily afford some food with more cals,,, and bring it up to around 1400 a day if you do the 120 cals,,,,,,, or have some ICE CREAM (.5 of a cup) and that'll help ya out !! it worked so WELL For me,,, and that's the only thing I can tell from ur tracker,, the last time I looked,,,, on how to help ya !

THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO !! We ADORE those FLOPPY Ears,,, those BRIGHT and EAGER EYES !! Those CUTE paws !

Aww kiddo ur TO KIND !! Ty so muchers !!

Have U been to any Pawtucket games??? How are they doing? I can't remember who they said,, but U just had one of our Sea Dawgs,, who came up to ,, and they QUICKLY put him up to the Red Soxs,,,, I THINK??? they said he's the pitcher or the catcher???????Of course they had to send someone else DOWN

Izzy was just laying up besides me,, guess it's to WARM for her,, though I have on a silky sheet,,, for I was COLD when I came in from the 83 degrees temp ,, sunny,, to my place at 69. I keep it rather cold in here,, cos my friends are in here working for me,,, trying to get RID of what an upstairs neighbor is FULL of,, so of COUrSE some came down here,, to vacation?? they are NOT wanted,,, I think I told you ,,, I am battling bed bugs !! OUT OF ALL LOUSEY TIMINGS !! I can't DO A THING to to help my friends,, and I feel like a CReAP !! I did buy my own steamer,,,, so that my friends do not have to bring theirs over,, ALSO cos this is the 2nd time this IDIOT upstairs has them in just 1 1/2 yr !! I am MORE than DICUSTED !! if I EVER get my feet well enough,,,, I m going to ask for a tRANSFER to another apt,,, perhaps on the 5th or 7th floor where they hardly ever get them,, NOT the 8th or 6th for they ALMOST ALWAYS have them there ! My Friend T lives on the 8th,,, she is ALWAYS steaming things,, though of course she need not, but is,,, as I will now be,, PARANOID of them !! I also wanna SLAP the creap upstairs,, he's NOT doing what he is SUPPOSED TO DO. ALSO he's has had them for about 3 months IF NOT LONGER !! he SHOULD of as I was,,, ready in just ONE WEEK to have someone in. Maybe he doesn't MIND them,,,, some do NOT ! but, I am on the othah hand,, TeRRRiFIED of them ! I am prob going to do an official complaint so they HAVE to send someone in to CLEAN FOR HIM at $$$$300 to 500 , but I DO NOT CARE about if he can or cant afford it. I Know I COULD, but would NOT want too !! I am paying one friend as we go along,, the other one,,, I will when we are done.]

HUGS !
