Just a place to let us know what's happening during your day.
 
Hi Gang,
It's been a month and a day since I've posted here.  Have missed you all, and hope I can return to active again. 
 
Too little time to fill you in on things going on with me this morning... but I did want to start a new game. (Double Letter Words)  Hope you will 'play'.

So nice to join you all again!

Courtney... Happy 23! enjoy each and all...they add up fast!
Jamie...did I read you're having floods?

Nice morning here in Pennsylvania. It MIGHT get to 70º today!. Is this the weekend we change the clocks for Daylight Saving Time?

John and I went for a consultation yesterday about possible radiation treatment for his Prostate cancer. Oh my, decisions, decisions. Right now we are leaning toward just 'watchful waiting. (Must do more research on the pros and cons)

Good morning Joyce
 
So glad you are back!!
 
My hubby had radiation treatments for his prostate cancer, but his was growing and terminal when diagnosed. He had 43 treatments M_F for 9 weeks. He had to quit work because of weakness and exhasution. But doc said every body is different, some guys bounce right back. My Dad had PC for 20 years before he died of kidney failure at 79...his docv told him he would die of something else before the PC got him...so I guess every case is different...I hope your husband can go without...My husband just hit 5 years cancer free(and they gave him 2 years max!!) And now it is just "watchful waiting" for us too. Good luck Dear...so nice to have you with us again!
 
Take care

Oh Magpie, (love that you posted YOUR name)

Appreciated your input about radiation. Yes, 9 weeks is what they said John would have. An hour drive each day would be an exhausing trip, never mind the treatment itself. At age 81 he would like quality, not quantity.

Does your husband have PSA tests and/or having any problems now?

Well, time to get ready for a few hours at my business.

Hi Joyce
 
My hubby had surgery and they removed prostate and partial removal of bladder valves and tissue, which left him pretty much incontinent. That has been a real struggle for him. Then radiation.
 
His PSAs since surgery and radiation have been very low, so low he only haas to test once a year now. So good news that I have my husband here at all. I hope John's is very slow-growing and I completely agree with quality over quantity. Pat's treatment was so radical because of the speed which cancer was growing and he was only 56 at the time.
 
Have a great day my dear

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! I am glad we are all back :) :) :)

G-ma J, I will pray for your husband and the upcoming decisions you are having to face. I'm sure none of them are easy and I bet it seems like there is no "right choice".

On my end, I think things have been going better. I only really need my Xanax when I am at work. When I feel anxious outside of work, I normally just step away for a few minutes and center myself again. I've been feeling weird lately, like ex will contact me. No matter how many times my best friend, Dawn, ignores her calls or texts, ex still sends them. On my birthday, she sent Dawn a text saying she hoped "we had a good day"... how did she even know we would see each other?? we live an hour apart! It's all just odd. She's odd.

My counseling has been such a gift to me; I have most definitely decided I want to do the same thing with my life. I want to help others overcome situations and find the true happiness inside themselves.

Hope to hear from everyone!

Good morning...well, sorta...
 
Just managed to drop my coffee cup and had to start my day washing the floor (and walls, and table tops).  Not the best beginning... it better improve!
 
When do you pet owners begin using flea medication?
My favorite cat has been more 'itchy' than usual, and not sure if it's bug bites or a food allergy.  I did see a commercial for flea meds last evening on TV. 
 
Warm weather continues today.  Daffodils are blooming...(and weeds are sprouting).
 
Time to get a second cup of java.  At least I didn't break the cup.
See ya..

Hi I hope you all have a great day too!!!

I have lost a cup of coffee before, surprisingly it went everywhere. Even on the walls and ceiling. I don't know how, but it did.

I have broken my favorite cup too. Bummer... I get use to a certain cup and use it all the time...

Joyce, I am so happy that you are back, cheering us up...

Maggie, I hope that you are feeling better now.

Hugs, Karen

Karen, I was surprised at how far my coffee splash went! Not on my ceiling (I think...haven't looked)


Wish Magpie could share her blueberry muffins, ...wahhhh, I want some.

(....glad to join you folks too).

I want muffins too! I successfully drank my coffee no spills. I just love coffee.

No major plans this weekend... may be hanging out with my somewhat neighbor/kissing buddy. Not sure where things lie between us & not interested in finding out either. I think it's just fun to hangout, kiss every now and then, and not worry. Still just too selfish to give up my "me time".

I am almost finished reading the Hunger Games series. Are any of you big readers? Any suggestions on what I should read next?

Happy Friday!

Good Saturday morning.

Time to turn our clocks ahead one hour tonight. We usually neglect (too much trouble) changing the clock in the car. Oh well, so it's correct half the year...better than never.

Quiet day expected for us today. Grocery shopping and that's about it.

Still waiting for a muffin, Magpie... can smell the blueberries.

about my 'game' threads... shall we just have one (semi) active at a time... or should I get some more up and running?

Court...
I forgot to answer your question about books to read. 
 
No, I'm not a 'reader'...so can't help.  John reads a lot ...daily newspaper and weekly trips to the library...but he prefers non-fiction.  Right now he's reading 'The Shakespeare Guide to Italy'.  Whatever that's about.
Maybe this is why.... tongue
 

A thought for the day….

Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

good morning all!
 
Finally getting over "bug"-hallelujah!
 
Sorry, no muffins-they were scarfed up by the girls and Dad-I got 1! Pat made doughnuts from scratch with powder sugar, and Crisco last night and I pigged out on those-melt in your mouth...diet just flew out the window-AGAIN!!
 
Courtney/Bean-I am a voracious reader but this depressive episode has me unable to concentrate. I saw a sequel to a book I adored years ago-great series!! The first book is "Clan of the Cave Bear" by Linda Auel...about a clan of cavemen, so fascinating, fiction. I am thinking of re-reading it. I like historical novels and crime. Janet Evanovich has a series starting with "One for the Money", these are hilarious light reading. I laugh out loud!!
 
Katie missed so much school that she has to makeup "seat time" today!! They don't even study or learn, they just sit there. So stupid, I guess it state regs.
 
Rainy and cool here for days-azaleas are blooming cause our winter has been so warm. Trees budding too. It also means more fleas and mosquitoes and gnats-Yuck!! Break out the frontline for the pets-so expensive.
 
Okey-dokey-I'm off to grab 2nd cuppa and (ssshh!) a cigarette. Check y'all later
 
Take care
Magpie

Magpie, I'll join you in the (ssshh) and also in re-reading the Jean Auel stories. I, too, enjoyed the cave bears and always looked forward to the next printing. However...haven't read the most recent editions.

Good idea to 'start over'.

Doughnuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Joyce
 
Yes, wasn't that fantastic reading? I read it 30 years ago and still remember Ayla. My mother (RIP) recommended it to me. I saw a new book at Walgreen's by Auel, a sequel of sorts but didn't buy it. Maybe go to library today!!
 
Anyway, after doughnuts and muffins, it is bread and water today-lol!
 
Y'all have a good day.
 
Take care
Magpie

How about Cyber muffins Joyce...??? I will send some to you. I like Banana nut though. John likes the blueberry.

Clan of the Cavebears. That was a long time ago, right. But Good read I have heard.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

Remember the Children in the attic series? That was long ago too.

Have a great day all!!!

Hugs, Karen

PS I use to be into Stephen King and stuff like that. Not anymore. But sounds good again...

Hugs...
