    Yep, FW, I meant mahi-mahi...I was thinking about our "Maui" and typed it that way...I realised later what I'd done and left it...lol...silly me! It turned out very tasty by the way! The kids all ate some too. Sorry about the problem with your dd's bf. What does he do mannerswise that's so bad? I have to remind my oldest not to smack when he eats...drives me nuts! Dh gets VERY annoyed with it. Our beagle can't lift her tail end either some days.Glucosamine seems to help sometimes.

    OM, I am very sorry about the troubles with your dh's Grandma...I know that has to get very tiresome for you. You must have the patience of Job to deal with it all of the time.

    I planted a row of beans today, but have more to plant for later. I wish my garden was bigger! Youngest ds came up at 8 p.m. with an essay he has to write suddenly for tomorrow. I HATE it when kids pull that! I just want to throttle him! Middle ds carved some words on his bedroom wall the other day when he was mad at his Dad...words like "hate" etc...and dh took his computer away and is making him spackle, sand, and paint it. The problem is dh couldn't find the same paint color at Lowe's today so now we're going to have to do a single accent wall or something. I liked the room the way it was. Oldest ds told me yesterday that he'd be home at 5 p.m. I wanted to know how he was doing that since he was supposed to have another class until 8 p.m. "Oh, I don't go to that class anymore," He said. I asked him why he doesn't and he said he DECIDED to stop going. WTF? He DECIDED to...why? Apparently it took so much time away that he didn't want it to effect his other classes in which he has A's (or so he says...we'll see). Couldn't he have DECIDED to drop it during Drop/Add like four months ago? Really? I swear sometimes they all make me want to scream! Oh wait...I do scream sometimes!

    Dh got his first retirement check and his first paycheck from his new job today. I was pleased with that... for a while...until he told me that his boss said that there's no hope of this job continuing beyond the 8-9 months. I was kind of hoping that they could extend it for like...forever. The employment agency is hoping to get him another job with the same company that is permanent though. My Mom kind of put me into a funk also when she pointed out how little we'll have to live on after our house payment comes out when this job runs out IF he doesn't get another one right away. Thanks Mom! I was feeling secure for all of five minutes until dh told me what the boss of the company said and then my Mom made her calculations. Ugh! I don't want to feel insecure at my age...not what I wanted for my life at this stage. On top of all of that, I had my monthly weigh-in and I gained a pound! Sigh! I think I'll go to bed soon. Take care and have a good night everyone!

    Hi all.

    FW - big hugs! Don't cry, that makes me sad.

    val - sorry Mom got you down...I am sure it wasn't intentional.

    OM - I think your BIL needs to go.

    SM - so glad to hear the good news about Kevin!

    Ds had a job interview today but I guess he didn't get it...he said he was suppose to hear by tonight if he was awarded it...dang, it was a good one too with Bombadier Airlines. Oh well, hopefully something else will come up...I should have asked for prayers from you ladies earlier today...they always seem to work.

    Have a great night everyone..hugs to all. I am off to bed!

    Good morning all!

    So sorry everyone seems to be going through so much! I think we should all go somewhere together for a girl's weekend--wouldn't that be a blast!

    It's looking very cold and miserable here today--we may be getting a mix of rain and snow later. I hope not, because we are heading to my parent's house overnight, and would rather not have to go in bad weather.

    I've been trying to work out more, so I've been spending less time on the computer. We have a busy summer coming up with different events to go to. In June we have a mess dinner on base, as well as a ball, although we don't have many details about the ball, so that one's still up in the air. Then in July, DH's niece is getting married in BC, so we are travelling out for that. Then in August, my sister's stepson (my step-nephew?), is getting married in Winnipeg. At least that one is close! LOL
    I'm hoping to lose a couple of dress sizes by the time the first event comes along. I've done OK so far; I've lost close to 10 pounds in the last couple of months. I just need to step it up a little now. At least I'll have a good excuse to go shopping for a new dress or two!

    Hugs and prayers going out to all of you! Have a great day!
    ~Tracy~

    Madkat-good going on the weight loss.
    DebC-don't cry for me you know how it works here is pychoville.
    So DD took her typing and her computer exam. Said she did poorly on the computer exam.
    She met w/ the dept. head. He kept supporting the teacher and she kept rebutting (that my girl-don't back down-guess mama wore off). Looks like she can get an incomplete that won't hurt her average,take the course in summer session and such on their dime. she still awaits final decision. BUT the course would be w/ the guys dad!!!!! yikes. I told her NOT to bad mouth the son under any circumstances. PRECARIOUS. So she gets to use the same book too,i guess.
    Sorry Ds didnt get the job. The name of that airline-SERiousLY that just pushes my irony button.
    Her stupid dog seems better. It just makes me crazier. Everyday!

    Om-sorry about the chaos. Seems everyone needs a time out over there except you and hubby.

    Tervs-hope everything is going well after surgery. Sorry I missed your last day.

    In better news I slept last night well-w/ the help of 2 allergy pills.lol
    And the State refund is in. So 1/2 way to mattress but I will prob. add this to the next house payment in a few days.
    Going to mess w/ all the cookbooks I bought this week.filing and catorizing. Gosh,I made a BIG mess!
    For some reason they are now taking an extra $36. per month from DH's pay. Stop it,stop it you guys. We already lost $200. a month from that tax change expiring earlier this year. Chip,chip away?? Glad we are killing the 1st mortgage sooon!!!!

    My SI has went up as I have lost 8 lbs. since February 2. Not alot, but enough to please me.

    Asking for more prayers regarding our move. I will let you know details when I know more. You all are not only the best group of gals to chat with, but you are also some of the best prayer warriors.

    Thanks friends,

    A2M

    Om's-maybe as long as we swear on the bible not to bring any relatives and maybe friends too.

    got the shakies today and haven't eaten much but crackers. DD invited BF over and I was pixxed so I took a nap. She just wanted to grill but I have to feel better to deal w/ that.
    His car is missing the exhaust,he yells because he can't hear out of one ear well and won't get tested. I knew today i would say something nasty so I left. I'm still mad from the other day. He flops down in chairs,throws his keys on my wood dresser,flops his deisel smelling coat on my cookbooks. Just so annoying. I'm beginning to wonder if he's stupid or slow. BBl

    A2M-it's a catch. You don't eat if you don't feel good,you don't feel good if you don't eat. But thx. DH just brought me a roast beef grill cheese. I feel a bit less crabby but still cold.
