Peggy,The eye rolling teacher has been here for over 20 years and is one of the only full time teachers. Getting him out a here would be really hard. I'll deal.Besides he has to deal with me too. Payback is a ...you know what. He is as stuck with me as I am with him. I am having fun making the little project for the tea exchange. And everyone will be proud of me... I'm using scraps I almost threw away! How is that for a hint!
Peggy, have you heard anything from Darlene? I think I'll send her a card.. but was just wondering if anyone has heard from her. I really hope she is ok.

Penny, the little one is so cute! What eyes.

Lora, so sad about your house, but fun to be starting over? What a big job and probably lots of emotion to go along with it.

Sorry to not respond to everyone... I need to get ready for school! Fairytales and myths this morning. Then mean eye rolling accounting teacher this afternoon.

later All!

Hey Porchies!!!

I think I am still holdin on to what was. I have caught myself comparin garden sizes and lamentin that I don't have the space for this or that 'anymore'. I'm not real sure how to let go. I went through the same thing over givin up our trailer that we owned outright to move in with MIL three years ago. It was an upgrade, but it still was hard on me. I don't like lettin go. I like stability and a solid plan. I'm more of a permanance kind of person than one of changability. I guess I'm just not very flexable, kinda stiff.

Judy.....I want in on the drawin!!!!

Peggy...I understand about allergies like that. I'm allergic to latex. I had a dr put a latex based cast on me while not wearin any gloves cause he was out of the nonlatex ones! I was back in a few hours with an incredibly swollen, itchy, blistered, achin arm. Then the whole mess turned out to not be broken, just hyper-extended, and only required a brace for a few weeks! Here's hopin the dr is payin attention!!!!

Bunny...I was really good at makin my teachers roll their eyes! They all thought I was a smart a** and I didn't bother to correct them. I figured if I was buggin them they weren't buggin me! LOL!

I did spend some time with the grandboy this easter. We fed him up with chocolate and suckers and sent him on his way to see everyone else all sugar rushed and gooey and sticky! It was fun and he was so intent on the candy basket! He loves color and seems to already recognize chocolate in any form and shape. He's his mamma's boy on that. A total chocolate fiend!!!

I'm off to finish my new Mother Earth News and rearrange my garden plan agian. I was given some arugala seed, so I have to make some room!

Good morning ladies! Wow, I had to read multiple pages to catch up. Sorry for being MIA. Glad everybody appears to have had a good Easter. I'll be in much more regularly and keep up better then I have been.

Okay now to update you on a couple areas I've mentioned: I'm sure many of you will be happy to know I quit my second job yesterday. Sunday I had 2 irate guests at the desk at the same time that when they got going and started feeding off each other's belief of how wronged they'd been it escaladed to the point I had to call the police. I will never allow myself to be put into another situation where I felt the shift of energy and knew I'm was in serious danger and had to wonder if the police would get there before it erupted into violence. There were a bunch of people there that were checking out or heard the commosion and wondered in to see what was going on. One of the housekeepers came in and I seriously want to believe that she was trying to help but she enflamed the situation. I'm still pretty shaken over the incident. The man fortunately didn't go as neanderthal on me as I was worried he would but informed me I wasn't going back. I'd initially thought of not telling him what happened but apparently one look at me and he knew something serious had happened. Of course the manager when I called to tell him I was quiting couldn't bother to pick up his phone and he refuses to set up his voicemail so I couldn't leave a message so I was left with the unbelievable option of texting him my resignation. His unbelievable text back to my statement that I couldn't possibly go back to work where I didn't feel safe was "but you are safe". Oh, did I mention the first officer called in 2 more cars for backup? But I'm safe. He's left me 2 voice messages today but I'm not in the mood to hear what he has to say so I'm ignoring them. The worse part is there's a suspicion that one of my co-workers intentionally caused it so I would have to deal with it. I didn't mention the suspicion to the man when I told him what happened but he immediately brought it up pointing out the mistakes were HUGE. It seriously has shaken me to think that somebody would set this up without thinking about the fact that it could have turned deadly. Enough, I'm getting myself worked up over it again and I need to let it go. Please keep me in your prayers if you would that I can heal quickly from this. I'm looking forward to being home more. I definately need some time to knit and let the furkids help me get myself grounded and re-centered again.

On to more positive news: The man's interview went well Friday. They had 2 people doing the phone interview with him and he was interviewed for an hour so we figure he had to be doing well for them to interview him that long. We're waiting to see if he gets a second interview. They asked a couple questions regarding our moving out of state and towards the end again asked how comfortable we were with moving. He decided to was going to try to make it as firm as he could and replied that one way or another we would be out of Michigan before the end of the year. I just hope they didn't take it as he would take any job just to get out of Michigan though. I would think the fact that we went out there last year and investigated the area should indicate as well how serious we are about moving there. I didn't get home until right after the interview had ended so hopefully he did as well as he hopes. We shall see. Hopefully we'll hear soon one way or another.

Angela - I can feel for you with the garden. I'm so conflicted with a move possibly being in our future that I don't know if I want to put in a garden this year or not. I'd hate to spend all the time and money to plant my beds to only have to leave them. I've been thinking maybe just herbs and then I'll buy the rest from the farmer's market to can wherever we end up. I agree with the other gals, you need to let go of what was and focus on what is. You'll make yourself miserble if you continue focusing on what you don't have. You might also need to forgive your MIL for being the cause of it. Letting that fester isn't going to do you or anybody any good. There are many of us misplaced farmgirls out there and we can survive off the farm - I'm surviving in a city with over a million people. I know you're use to having a huge garden but your plots are not going to produce what you're use to or the amount you want. You also need to realize that it's not uncommon for people to take other people's produce in those plots so don't be surprised at theft occuring. Decide what's important to you to grow yourself. For me it's tomatoes and my herbs. The rest I'm okay buying at the farmer's market. It's obviously more expensive but we have to work with what we have. Take a couple berry bushes if they're important to you and plant them at your new home or put them into planters. Everything is replaceable down the road. If you have something that's irreplacable because your grandmother gave it to you or whatever then put it in a container and take it. You just can't take everything and I know that hurts. Give yourself time and you'll adjust and be able to breath again even living in the city. We are resilient. Personally I find when I get in the "poor, poor me" state that reading books on pioneer women really helps readjust my thinking.

Welcome all the newbies! Glad you joined our merry bunch of porchies. I don't think there's an unfriendly group in the forums but this group is especially friendly. Besides nobody else shares all the tasty teas and goodies we do over here :O)

What's the status on our 500 page exchange that was mentioned a while back? Meagan are you coordinating that or was somebody else? Do we have a date set? I need to know how long I have to get it together.

Well I've got about an hour left of work and then I can go home. Hope everybody enjoys their day today.

Wow Tammy. I'm glad you quit that job. What an amazingly weird place. Good that you are safe and out of there. Makes my job look perfectly normal.

My screen is formating oddly, so I have to move the scroll bar on the bottom to read the right hand side of the scree. I proably pushed some button or other while typing.

So I missed what GiGi's rare disease is. I did go to your website to see the dedicatoin pics. How adorable. What fun.

The cold is in my nose and I feel icky. I'm hoping it isn't that awful chest thing. It doesn't seem all that bad, but I kept saying that last year, and i was wrong. phooey.

I put seed out for the birds, and it turns out they don't like hulled barley. Not even the crows. I get organic seeds and grains from the co-op and mix them up. I sure hope hulled barly won't grow.

Good Afternoon Porchies..

My daughter started her new school today. She was being bullied at her other school and nothing was being done about it. This school move took awhile to do mainly because I wasn't taken seriously and the student laision dude told the Superintendent I was a drama queen.So now I'm anxiously awaiting for 3pm to come and I go pick her up.

We spent easter with my mother in law and sister in law. We had a fun time. Egg hunt and I spent a couple hours watching the chickens and ducks. She has over 30 chickens and about 15 ducks. Now I cant wait to get some property and get some chickens and ducks and bunnies and turkeys and goats. And a garden spot. I'm glad my sister in law told me I could use one of their many garden spots for our garden.

I enjoy a tiny bit of sugar in my tea. Mostly I drink it plain. I really like Good earth's sweet and spicy tea. Soo yummy. I better get back to crocheting. My little one wanted a bunny for easter, so i'm croceting one..And now she wants me to make her some baby clothes and diapers for her Baby Alive..(Kalinta) She loves that name, she's 5. Looking forward to chatting with everyone.

..shuffles out of the corner and plops down in a rocker...wasn't hiding, read posts but just couldn't sit down and write, but I'm here now..

Happy Easter and Happy Spring to all. For Easter dinner, we had 8 people total and ate outside on the deck, getting rained on with maple seeds. The air was brisk, but the sun was bright and about 70. We played croquet afterwards, a couple of times... fun.. we enjoyed time with family we don't get to see often either..and they don't live that far away.

Nan: hate when that happens. we didn't get sick all winter, knock on wood. sure hope ya feel better.
I was having trouble with screen not "fitting" so I have a mouse with a wheel and I held down the Control button and turned the wheel til I got the right size page and still be able to read without squinting. :) hope that helps.

Miranda: your cats are just beautiful! hope they're getting along better now.

Dianne: the tea came in yesterday and that blackberry sage is wonderful. thank you. drank the first cup with sugar and the 2nd cup plain.. yes, i use my teabags twice. :)

Debbie: we have 2 things in common, we both like to crochet and Original Good Earth tea. :)

yesterday was so warm, breezy and sunny, that I got all my laundry done in my wringer washer and hung til dry.nothing like the smell of lined dried clothes and sheets, ya know?

Put a light out in the greenhouse for warmth, since it's been 35 at night and going to be 29 one night this week. Sure don't want to lose any plants after putting all that work in them.

Welcome to the new gals... from western North Carolina! smiles, hugs and prayers for all. :)


Make my words soft and tender, for I may have to eat them. :)

Hello girls...Peggy thank you for the warm welcome and I sure hope your dentures come and work great for you. My husband has such trouble with his being to loose and to tight with his wallet to go and get them fixed. I think he also likes to have something to complain about. Ha

Penny I'm not sure who the baby is in your pic, but she is a little beauty. Also if I can figure it out how to put pics on here I will get you some baby calfs and lambs. Thank goodness I still have teenagers still home to show me how to do it, just hope I can retain the info. Ha

Well, my day was planned and we all know when we plan it gets messed all up,right! My son gets up this morning and has that crude in his head and chest. I will tell you why I was so worried, when Mac (my son)was on his way into this world the cord got wrapped aroung his neck and then he had a BM inside and inhaled it. They had to do a emergency C-section on me. The helicoper was sent in and he was flown to Omaha NE., he had to stay for 4 days up there. Oh how I hated that. Anyway he still has trouble with his lungs when he gets sick with colds, so needless to say we had to go to the Dr. Mac got a shot and is feeling better, jusy glad it didn't settle in to bad this time. By the way Omaha is a 3 hour drive from where we live, so I couldn't go see him while he was in the hospital.

So I went to the grocery store after I got Mac back to school and hurried home to get dinner for my husband and brother-in-law. While preparing the food my sugar starts to fall- I am a diabetic. For the ones that don't know about diabetes, when your sugar falls a person gets very week, shakey, and feeling really bad. Well I got through dinner and went right to bed, slept for awhile and now I feel a lot better. So needless to say, nothing I wanted to do has got done yet. Oh well, I guess there is tomorrow if I don't get it done.

Ok now my son is wanting supper, so better go and get that done anyway.

Take care and talk to you all later.

Hi My Porchies...just real quick...

WELCOME DEBBIE! Always room on the Porch!!

RFM Tammy...yahoo, you quit that awful job. Sorry you got scared half to death but glad
you quit!

Patsy...glad to see you girl!!! I am sure that Judy warned you that we send out the Porch Posie
if you go MIA for more than 3 days! lol

The last page of posts was really messed up. I am not sure why we all had to scroll across to read
everything, but it seems to have self-corrected on this page. So Glad!!!

OK...got my denture, looks good, feels weird, and I sound funny talking. Several times it has gotten
my gag-reflex going, may need an adjustment back there. Over-all, I am just happy to have teeth again
and be able to smile! The teeth look real natural. They no longer make the teeth all the same length...
which gives it the more natural look of your own teeth. Tried to eat a chocolate cookie (what else)lol
feels weird not to have all your taste sensation going on in your mouth. Makes food NOT taste as appealing.
Did not expect that. Only ate half the cookie and gave rest to DH. Only drank half my coffee (vanilla latte),
maybe there is hope I will now lose weight cuz food doesn't taste as good (I can at least hope!).

OK...need a nap! More Later!

:+) Hugs,
peggy

Hopefully no more snow until the end of October now. But no planting until the first of June.
For some reason that last entire page was formatting oddly. I had the same problem with scrolling back and forth.
Thanks all for prayer for the kids. I am off to class shortly.

Good evening ladies,
I do hope you had a great day. I decided I wish it was summer! My little butterflies have decided the same I believe. We have only about 6 weeks left of school but the school year has been long. I was disappointed at Weight Watchers as I seem to have the scale moving the wrong direction. I have been close to my goal weight and then I got in a funk. So I am drinking chocolate tea and having some strawberries for a snack.

Peggy so glad to hear that you got your dentures. I will pray they fit well and you get used to them.

Welcome to all the newbies. So glad to see you here. Trust that the porch posie hits the road to hunt you down if you go AWOL...but it is so nice to know we are truly loved here on the porch.

well I am going to drown my sorrows of today in a pot of tea and good book and then bed. Tomorrow is a new day.
love to you all
Tammy

I had a big long post here and I lost the whole thing!!!! I hate it when that happens!!!! So with that, I will just say I hope all are doing well. It is only 30 degrees here right now, still very windy. Maybe by next week we will have better weather so I can get out and work in the gardens and yard.
Peggy, I am sure after awhile you will taste food again, just takes time to get used to.
Welcome all the newbies.
Will catch up with the rest of you later. Have a great evening,

Tammy...I'm glad you quit that job! WOW! I am tryin very hard to let go and turn around. My Hubby said it is like I'm hangin from a limb facin the wrong way, I need to let go one hand at a time and turn myself around.

Debbie... I had to move my middle DD due to bullyin, then remove her from school altogether to homeschool due to a teacher bullyin her! It was a very traumatic thing for her, but she is great now. Good for you! Good mom's stand up for their kids no matter what others think!!

Netty...I'm hypoglycemic, used to be diabetic but dr said I control it so well with diet and exercise he thinks it might have been jumpin the gun puttin me on meds and labelin me like that. I get the sugar lows sometimes if I let life get in the way. It feels so horrible and then eatin just starts a roller coaster sugar ride that knocks you out for hours. I hate it and will set my alarm on my phone to remind me to eat if I'm super busy, like christmas or thanksgiving or birthday cookin days. I know how bad that feelin sucks.

I understand bein super protective and worrisome of illness with your child. I have a 3y/o DD who was a preemie with an enlarged heart and enlarged liver. She was in the NICU at methodist hospital for 6 weeks when she was born. I didn't even get to hold her till she was 3 days old. It was heartbreaking and terryifying. I am always hyper aware of her health and what she eats and does. It's just a mommy thing when we see those little ones, they are always in that fragile state in our eyes.

Peggy...I'm glad you got teeth now! If they are hittin your gag reflex you really need to watch them. My mom's did that and she has nearly killed her gag reflex because she wouldn't get hers fixed. Just be careful, we all care about you and we are all a bunch of 'mommy types'.

I decided to grab the bull by the horns today and get started on some forward momentum. I went and got 1680 lbs of gravel and filled the bottom of my 4x4 box and all my big planters on the porch. Then I went and got a whole truck bed of mostly composted manure and filled the box and big planters to 8 inches from the top. Then I filled the planters with my mix of compost, pottin soil, and garden dirt to top them off. I will plant them tommorrow. I also have to get a load of topsoil for the box so I can plant it.

All of my boxes and planters are basically hotboxes this year. I will be plantin everything tomorrow and coverin with plastic. I am tryin this to see if it will start my plants like a hotbox would. If it does I will be diggin the beds out each fall and refillin them each spring for startin my seedlings! I can get fresh, uncomposted manure from the same location I get the composted stuff. It's all free, just 2 different piles. The uncomposted stuff gets really hot, so it can be started pretty early in the spring.

I'm also tryin something else new. I've got a few tomato plants started and I'm gonna start some from seed under a milk jug hotcap beside them. Supposedly they will match each other by the time they start producin tomatoes and the seed started ones will produce into the fall longer. I was wantin to play around with a bunch of weird ideas and stuff, but the garden was so far away from the house. Now I have the boxes right by the house and planters right by the front door. I can play around as much as I want and can check everything mornin, noon, and night without a long walk.

I'm startin some new garden journals and puttin weather and experiment info in them each day. I want to really track what's happenin and see what works and what doesn't. I'm even gonna try plantin some of my berry bushes up by the neighbors fence and tie them up straight so the kids won't get into them on accident.

Hubby is pickin up a bunch of porch rail boxes from menards tomorrow on his way home. I will get my strawberry plants in them by this weekend and will have them on my porch! I think they will be nice to go with the huckleberry and sunberry plants I'm startin. I am also gonna get me some blueberry bushes to grow in large planters in the front yard. I will have lots of berries and there is a woman I get peaches and pears from just outside of town, so fruit will be plentiful around here.

I'm so tired and sore now. The gravel was machine loaded, but shovel unloaded. Then the manure was shoveled in and out of the truck. Then I had to clean the truck! It was dad's truck, I just borrowed it since he doesn't have a campershell and mine does. I'm hopin tomorrow won't be too bad since it's just a very small load of dirt, not a whole truck bed.

I did come home and take a long soak in the tub. I love havin a tub agian!! I was without one for 3 years. I hate showers! I love to soak and read. I spent nearly an hour soakin my sore back and legs tonight. I feel waterlogged and sleepy. I sat down with some good tea and pumpkin bread and have nibbled and typed here for about 45 minutes now. I guess it's time to end this novel and get my sore buns to bed.

Night all!!

Oh Penny, you brought back some good memorys about playing around with your mom when she took out her dentures. There is a candy called -rock candy-, I believe, anyway it pops when it gets wet. Anyway mom had her teeth out one morning and I gave her some of this candy, boy talk about hollering and then she started to laugh. It was so funny!! Then I gave her some bubble gum and she blew a bubble and her dentures were stuck to the bubble. I laughed so hard, we still laugh about it when we get to talking, because the teeth were dangling from the bubble. Ha Ha

Hope you have a great day

Morning ladies! Sorry I have been out of the loop... I haven't had a chance to catch up... been up to my ears in paperwork with the house. Having to dispute something on my credit report because apparently CitiMortgage thinks that if there are two ML Paces residing at the same address, they are one in the same. That's right, apparently I took out a mortgage with my Daddy when I was nine. Forget the fact that my DOB and Social are not the same.

SO I sent a letter with a copy of the report showing the mortgage, and they are supposed to send a letter stating that they are rectifying it.

I also found, while nosing around my reports, that AT&T lied to me and told me that my credit would be unaffected by their cancellation and collections ordeal that THEY caused. I hate to be a whiney wilma, but good lord... no wonder no one can get loans!! Even the people with GOOD credit have bad credit because of all the errors!!

Anyway, enough of that. I'm taking care of it and moving on to the next step. Going to have the house inspected, and wait for the letter to get to the mortgage company.

I'm trying to be cautious and not get my hopes up, but we already picked out paint for the trim of the house, as well as a couple of colors to keep in mind for the kitchen/dining and the sewing room. Thinking about colors for the bedroom and living room, now.

As for the trees, those will be planted eventually. Josh wants some fruit trees with the garden.

Well, girls, work is picking up suddenly and I just had to deal with someone who had a bad attitude and worse breath, so I'm off to go sip some more coffee (as if I need it!) Hope you all have a great day!

Thanks, Judy! I had a melt down the other night, but have decided to just keep moving ever onward (as I remind myself daily, to do!) and do what needs to be done.

So far so good, I have all of my apps and such filed and they are going to look it all over in the morning.


It's more or less a waiting game, now!!!

Well, I'm headed home here in a bit. Thankfully, Josh is off today so I have someone at the house to talk to other than the cats and dog, today ;)

Tammy, so sorry the job didn't work out. I'm glad you knew when to walk though. Sounds like a very scary day. If another coworker started this, wonder who their next victim is. Maybe if the man gets the job, a change of scenery will be nice.

Angela, glad you started work on your gardening. I bet it helps with the blues about moving. If I didn't have my sewing to distract me I don't know what I would do. You'll feel so much better working outside and I bet your garden will be awesome!

Peggy, never thought about the gag reflex. Is it common? Too bad food doesn't taste the same. So many things you don't think about with dentures.

Miranda, oh the trials of buying a house. I think many of us have gone through it. Just don't give up. It will work out if it is meant to. I always believed if you are meant to buy a certain house, everything will fall into place. If it becomes too much of an uphill climb... move on. It will all come together as it should.

Nothing going on here. Homework as usual, a little sewing. The weather is overcast but warm. It tried to rain this morning. I love it when it is warm and rains.
Later All!!

Hi, ladies!
It's just me jumping on your porch railing again..

Your "tea card" arrived today, Diane! After reading all the comments from the Farmgirls I can't wait to try the Blackberry Sage tea tonight.
The Chai sounds yummy too! Thanks so much!

I keep reading all your posts, girls. Every time I try to jump on the porch, it seems I just fall off again. (I've been doctoring for a couple of weeks now after not feeling well for a few months) I have to laugh at myself..I have good intentions of jumping into the conversation, and by the time I read all the posts, I am sooooooooooooo tired. lol. Guess my body just needs a little more time.

Did pick a quart of violets this aft to make jelly; and, will try to pick more tomorrow. DH bought me one of those thingees that you can kneel on, and turn over to use as a stool. Sure helped these silly knees. He even helped for about 15 mins. That was enough for him!

Angela, for someone who didn't have much to garden you are making me very sore! Isn't it nice to have those little things, like a tub, to make a house feel like home?

I feel your pain Miranda. Those credit reports are nightmare! I still have a similar AT&T strike on my report and I once lived in a duplex and the lady in the B apartment had the same last name. So now her name is on one of my reports as other names I go by. You can just call me "Ola" if you want lol. If you really need your credit report fixed up I recommend using Lexington Law. I had to use them for about a year but almost everything got cleaned up and the errors removed.

Peggy, I'm glad you got your teeth. That is weird about food tasting different. You will just have to force that chocolate down like a good girl.

Well, today I am having a little sore throat and feeling like the allergies are hitting a little. I'm taking it easy and resting lots. Things are coming along in the garden and hopefully I'll have a tomato to eat in a month or so. I got the bunnies tarps set up to protect them from rain and wind. I'm working on a washcloth to send with some soap to a penpal. I just keep thinking, "how in the world does Peggy just whip these out?" I must be the slowest knitter on the planet. I'm doing the basket weave washcloth free pattern on Lion Brand Yarn. Not much else going on. Going to go watch a movie and read some. Night girls.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

When I picked my dd up from school yesterday and today it was nice to see her smiling. And her day went really well.

I exercised a bit and I am so sore. I think I'll take a swim in the tub. Got most of my cleaning done. I finished a book I was reading, so it can go back tomorrow.

Not a whole lot going on ith me. My life is wonderfully dull.. I do watch a little girl a couple days a week. Her parents asked me what I charged. I told them to not worry about it. So they surprised me with the biggest cinnamon roll I've ever seen. And it was really good.


I'd like to learn how to knit someday. Have a great evening ladies.
