Ruth anne so sorry about your Gram. It's very hard. Praying for you and your famly for comfort.

Angela,You go right ahead and let off steam here. We're here for you. Any time. It sounds like you're overwhelmed and depressed. After all, you had to move suddenly to you knew not where, and tho that turned out well, it's still hard. Its hard to move period, but under those circusmstances, it's even more so. And then there is this toxic Aunt, and others in your family that you have been dealing with for so long, and like you said, you haven't really done anything fun as a family for ages. And now this with your grandmother, too. You're doing all you can there.

I did have a thot about the toxic aunt. It can be useful if somebody talks to her beforehand, and tells her that if she doesn't behave, she can't come. And that she needs to decide what she wants. Does she want to come to the party and behave nicely, or stay home? And if she does bad talk anybody, or is rude or unpleasant in any way, she will be removed. This is setting appropriate boundaries for yourselves. You have the authority to do that.

It might be that person could be your hubby. He could call her and tell her. Just matter of factly that this is how it is. She can come if she behaves nicely at all times. She has to decide. If she comes and is nasty, she leaves. Sometimes telling people like that in a calm way how it is, suprises them, and they do respond. And then you have to back it up with action. She might try to bully you beforehand with threats to cause other trouble. You can call her on that too, and refuse to be pulled in.

It seems to me that taking assertive action first is better than being on the defensive at the party itself. And that way, you won't be waiting for the shoe to drop.

I'm decreeing peace and love and joy to your family. And healing to your grandmother's kidneys too. And peace to you. there is no dysfunction or nastiness in Heaven. And we are to call down heaven to earth. So I'm doing that. I'm also praying for the Aunt, who has serious problems.

Miranda, Wow! How exciting!

Alyce, keep us posted on what the Realtor says.

I'm doing better. I saw my presciber, and we upped my antidepressant dose. It isn't supposed to have an effect for weeks, but the first day I felt better. I still get down, but I actually care about things again. Talkning to my counselor also helps, plus lots of prayer from friends. And from me for that matter.

Today i am going to rewrite info for a cat shelter website.I've been putting that off until it seems huge and not possible. But I know I can do it and it won't really be that hard. Then I am going to clean a corner of my kitchen, and then I'm taking the glass recycling to the dump. (they don't pick up the glass here, you ahve to take it. )
I've actually been making food and eating it. I made chili, which needs a bit of work, and potato salad. And sandwhiches.

Julie, was it you talking about the housecleaning, and actually sheduling what and when? I need to do that, such a good idea.

I have more news, but mostly, I'm functioning again, and not so down, and making slow progress on everything.

Love and prayers to all the Porchies and your families

Hello My Porchies...

I got on here about 12:15 last night and typed a post on my sticky notes, but obviously I was rummy in the brain...and didn't copy and paste it because this morning when I got on The Porch there was nothing there from me from last night. Guess I can't blame my computer on that one.
LOL After having a couple of bad fibro days and gran-dog sitting...my brain had joined my body and went into Fibro Fog Land!!!

It was so nice last night to have my bed back to myself...as my son's dog is use to sleeping on their bed so has to sleep on mine when he is here. Which I have no problem with as Bella use to sleep with me too. But Brindle is a bed hog and he wants to sleep back to back with you or stretched out across my legs and feet. Because I have muscle pain I toss and turn all night long trying to find a spot that doesn't hurt (which that spot isn't there) but non-the-less...I am tossing. So, last night I got the entire bed space back to myself and I stretched out right in the middle and enjoyed all that divine space to myslef. LOL

DH is working today. I haven't accomplished much, one load of laundry and the dishes done and hung a cross stitch picture. The picture is one my beloved ex-mother-in-love had. My son and fiance' brought it back from Spokane for me. Also, my MIL had one of my very first pieces of poetry...that God gave me back in 1990 framed and hung in her bedroom. I got that back...which meant a lot to me as it is the only copy of that poem that I can find. I always save my handwritten copies and my first printed copy in notebooks but for some reason I didn't do that with my first poem...and it is one of my all time favorites. So, now I can make other copies to share with people.

One of the gals at my Bible Study Group gave me a small book the other night called "A Special Thank You"
and she took every page and personalized it. It was so sweetly done it just really touched me. This is one of my favorite quotes in the book:
" Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament.
Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower and thank God for it as a cup of blessings." by Ralph Waldo Emerson
and one other
smaller quote by Chief Tecumseh of the Shawnee (my ancesters)
"If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself."

Aren't those beautiful sayings?
I just had to share them.

Teacher Tammy - I will grant your wish and remove you from the book give-away. You sounded in lovely spirits this morning. A bit more relaxed from the class room, I am sure. A bit of "ME TIME" is always good for the Soul.

Nan...You sound much better yourself and you had some very good advice for Angela. I hope she is lurking and reading.
We all want her to have a "Special Birthday" don't we?

Well, I am off to go read and sit out on the Porch with a drink. It is windy but warm outside but pleasantly warm (mid 70's).

Have a Wonderful Holiday Wknd Girls!

Hugs and smiles,
peggy

Wow, lots going on this week here on the porch. I'm trying the postit note idea to write responses as I read them so I don't forget any.

Angela - I've been going through a similiar problem. Just don't have any motivation and then feel guilty and rush to get a couple jobs done so I can at least say I've done something for the day. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Julie - I've been wanting to try geocaching. Sounds like a lot of fun.

Miranda - congrats on getting the closing date for the house. So exciting. Train is an adorable dog. How's he adjusting to his new home?

Ruth Ann - sorry about your grandmother. It's had to lose them.

Update on df's job interview. He's being flown out to Jamestown, ND, Tuesday for a job interview - company is paying for everything. If they give him a job offer they want him there in 2 weeks to start. Needless to say our heads have been spinning a bit at the thought of how fast this may go down. I'll probably stay here in Michigan until July for several reasons. We'll see.

We put my Montana minivan up for sale today and have somebody interested. I'm hoping we get it sold this weekend. We really can't move it with us.

Like Angela I'm having problems getting motivated this week. For me I think it's just getting use to the new part time job which is so physical. I took Friday off work since it was a 4-day for the Army. I had several things I planned to do and instead sat on the couch and ended up spending the whole afternoon and evening readying Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I've decided to reread the series. My oldest son's girlfriend has been posting pictures from London - she's on a school trip there - which caused me to get motivated about rereading the books again. It's one of my favorite series and I've been saying I'm going to reread them again but just hadn't gotten to it.

Need to cut this off. Somebody is setting off fireworks and the dogs are getting really spooked. Oreo keeps jumping up on my lap and on the computer she's so spooked.

I'll keep you updated Tuesday when I know more. Keep us in your prayers.

Evening sweet things,
I do hope yall have had a wonderful day. Just got home from an 80th birthday party for aunt of dear hubby. Boy did they have the yummiest cupcakes. I might have one or two..hehehe

Judy...I think Peggy being our dorm mama..maybe we should say porch mama

Peggy...Judy is right you look after us all right well. I know I best check in every few days or the porch patrol is on my butterfly wings..hehhehehe


My house is empty. All the family went home and Jax crawled up next to me and went to sleep. He was happy to have the house to himself with his family again. Just cracked me up. I was the one he wanted to nap by.

Well I hope yall have a wonderful memorial day. Let us not forget the freedoms we have and that so many have sacrificed on our behalf.

Time for tea and some crochet.
love to you all
Tammy

I am almost all packed and ready for camping. We will be leaving in the morning and won't be back until next Sunday. I hope we have nice weather. It rained most of the day today, then the sun came out, but only 59 degrees for the high. More rain expected tomorrow, so we might be setting up in the rain, plus traveling in it.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far. I will see you all next week,

Janet

Evening Lovely Ladies...

Bad weather here...didn't even get out of bed until 2:00 pm. My body protested at even that.
Sat on the sofa for the rest of the day and evening with the heating pad on my back. It finally gave me some relief.

I worked on my granny squares. Then tried out two new knitting patterns for washcloths. Didn't like either pattern (I have to have relaxing patterns not brain twisters) as I like to knit and watch tv and visit with DH.

Judy...that Dorm Mom was both funny and cute! Though I must admit I do feel more like The Porch Mom. Have to check on my porchies every few days. Like a Mama Bird with her chicks. So, yeah I will wear My Porch Mom Badge with pride!!! Bow Taken! Ha Ha!

I do love quote books and I collect my favorite quotes and put them in a journal. Have done that for at least 25 years.

RFM Tammy.... I think we all have periods of feeling down, depressed and un-motivated. Especially like you, Angela, Nan, Alyce (and even Myself)when our lives are confused by moves, possibility of moves and just kind of hanging in limbo... not knowing which direction you will be taking.

I don't personally feel depressed about moving...I am just
leaving it all in God's hands because I know we must move...but we have to wait...for something to give...so we can move forward. I just feel we are unsettled I guess. But anyway...we all have each other to lean on and pray for and encourage...and that feels good.
Miranda's move seems to being going forward and I am glad for her. It is always exciting once you see where life is taking you.
Keep us posted on how the Job interview goes for BF.

Teacher Tammy...Oh, how is our little Jax doing?
Has he grown anymore? Or is he still staying about 6-8 lbs? He is sooooo cute!

Our Snickers is a little tank. He is a stocky Scotty. I am not sure how much he weighs now, we take him in on June 5th for a well-dog check and his rabies shot...so, I will be interested to see what he weighs. I just know when I pick him up he feels like about 25 lbs to me. Scottys can be anywhere from 15-35lbs. Snickers Mother was 35 lbs, which is a big Scotty. I hope he doesn't get that big.
When his brother was here...both dogs
were walking away from me on their tie-downs out in the back yard...and they looked like two little fluffy-butts swaying back and forth. Like they were sash-shaying...it was so funny! Wish I would have videoed it.

It is always nice to have family visit...but it is also nice to have your house back to normal isn't it?

This next weekend, my youngest son, his fiance, and my middle son and myself are going to Seattle to Oldest sons house...for youngest grand-daughters birthday.(Man...that was a mouthful!) I can hardly believe my little Naomi is going to be one. Then in July older grand-daughter turns 4. They are growing up faster than I want them too. I would like to keep them right where they are. So precious and cute!

Janet...I hope you have a great camping trip. If you are in a camper...the rain won't be as big a problem than if you were tent camping. When I was younger, I loved tent camping and even had my share of rainy vacations weeks. We always had tarps over the picnic tables so we could at least sit out there and play cards or something...unless the rain was coming down side-ways.
Praying for sunshine for you and NO RAIN!

OK...off to read in bed for awhile.

Sweet Dreams Porchies,
Peggy

Hello Porchies,

I've been AWOL for awhile now so I have no clue how you all are doing. Hoping I'll be on here more often keeping in touch with all of you. Just got back from a quick trip to Portland. Took the kids to the Children's Museum. Five hours of thousands, I kid you not there had to be thousands of kids in there, yelling and running and having fun was exhausting. My kids had a blast. Then we went to a toy store and splurged. Then the hotel and swimming pool. Or should I say hot tub???? Momma was pooped. Next day we went to China Town (never been to one before) and looked at a beautiful garden. We even had a Chinese tea party at their teahouse. Then we went to the amusement park. The fair was there as well. So we had a blast. Kids were over the moon excited about the rides and all the fun. It was fun. It was like a carnival minus the carnies. And they had a carousel. I love carousels. So the kids had the time of their lives. Husband and I feel like we've been drug through a keyhole and want a holiday from our holiday.

Excuse the mess & the noise, my children are making happy memories

Peg, you need to rest up from being dog handled by a bed hog. One of my cats is a bed hog. He gets right at the foot of the bed and keeps me short sheeted all night.
The local nursery guy had me come and get my tomato basket yesterday. He said it was good for outside up here and he had it outside so hopefully all the lovely blooms on it will actually become tomatoes.
Kim glad you had a good time in old Portland with the kiddos.
T.L. Tammy, the cupcakes sound yummy. I am trying to refrain from cake of any kind so it sounds even yummier than usual.
Judy, I had the best dad a girl ever had. He told me I could do anything a guy could do I might just have to do it a bit differently due to my lack of sheer muscle. So I never even entertained the idea that I could not do stuff around the house.
Tammy, yea the motivation thing is a real issue. It has been a cool spring and not conducive to outside projects yet. And the way the list keeps growing I think the light at the end of the tunnel really is the train.
Janet, I want a small sail boat that I can get into the water on my own. That would be so nice. Your camping trip sounds good.
The sun is finally out and it is up to about 60. Spent the morning taking photos of DS stuff that he wants to sell. Put it on Craigs List and hope to get him a little extra money. Now I am taking pix of the pillow cases I have left from the sales. Not sure but think that I will maybe put them on Etsy. Thinking about it hard.
Blessing all.

Happy Memorial Day!!!
Ok Miss Peg, you can be the "Porch-Chickie Mom" (PCM) lol Wish I could have seem the sashaying that was going on. Thru you I think I DID see it! *giggle* Do you remember the "Aristicats",Disney film? There were these 2 geese,sisters,and their drunk uncle. They were trying to help him walk home,one propping him up on either side. But every time he'd stumble&sway...they'd sway with him...then they'd stumble&sway the other way....giggling and *hicupping* and saying "shhhhhhhh....quiet" , the whole time. Patsy&I just love that movie and that part especially. LOL Still *giggling*.....A great movie when you feel down!
Well hello Kimberly....long time no see. Glad you're back. So glad you and your family had a fun time with your Adventure Day! hahaha
Now you can rest up.
Well it's 95/humid/sun/clouds and we may see some rain before the night is through. I hope so.I'll probably go out and just stand in it....been known too....many times! lol I knew we'd pay for all that mild winter stuff. The temps are suppose to drop starting tomorrow. Might have a high of 61 on Friday...believe that? Amazing! Extra quilt for the bed that night!hahaha Strange!
Well, later gators!
Love Yuns!

Kimberly, OMGosh it sounds like a great trip and I totally get why you're exhausted. whew. How far is Prosser from Portland? I"m about 2 and a half hours from Portland from the south.

I have a Farmgirl thing that I did to report! I started building my second super for my bee hive. That is the square box that you see stacked up in bee hives. They come already cut out with handles routed in all four sides. IT's a rectangle. The boards are dadoed at each end (not sure about that. they have "fingers" that will lock together once they are glued and nailed). Well, I knelt on the step in my garage and drilled all the holes in each "finger" on all the boards. I had to match the drill bit with the nail size, which i did. (I've done this before.) And then I picked a longer and a shorter side and hammered the joints together, after carefully putting glue in all the spaces, and then nailed the pieces together from both directions. Those babies are tight when they are done. Since I don't have a jig to set the pieces in, I fiddled and pondered about the best way to attache the other two sides and decided that I would just make the other corner. Then the two corners would be very solid, and much easier to handle and attach.

So I put the other two pieces together. I made sure each time that the "handles" for each piece were on top. And then I went to put the whole thing together. I discovered that the ends arne't all the same, and there is another "top" side to consider. The short ends have a sort of ledge to hole the frames that will fill the box. Well, I didn't pay attenition to that, so i have two haves of two boxes now. I went over to my neighbor to ask if these corners could be pulled apart. He shook his head and said no way. They are naiiled in both directions and glued.

So what I will do is order another super and then *carefully* put together the two corners so they will match the two I have, and then I will have two more boxes to put on my hive. I have to paint them, too. (Lavender in this case. My friends painted theirs pale green.)

I goofed up, but I did it. I learned a lot, and I'll be able to do it easily next time. We have a friend who does a lot of woodworking, and he made a jig for assembling the frames. He is out of commission because he and a friend were falling a small pine tree, and he didn't get back enough and was scraped by it. He'll be ok, but he's not doing anything for awhile. BUT, my other beekeeping friend knows how to use the frame jig, and will meet me there so we can put together 50 frames. That should keep us for awhile.

I'm still waiting on where to move to and when. I'm giog to clean the living room up today, and then tomorrow, i think I'll go downstairs and look at the boxes still left from my move from Eureka, from home. I know there are things I don't need to keep. I think I'm able to get rid of them now.

God bless all you Porchies, and I'm praying for you all.

Hi every one. Had a post done and my iPad ate it. So I just has to step away for a while. Just got done with 6 hours of homework. I do it with another student, but it seems like I do most of the work. I won't have any classes with her next year hopefully I tried to get out of it this time but she is so persistent. She has little kids at home and it is hard to do 6 hours of homework and keep up with them. I started to feel bad about doing all the work but realize it comes out even when she doesn't do well on tests. Not to be mean, it just shows that I'm learning and she isn't. I have to do the work anyway. Ok, enough of my moaning.

My friend's kidney transplant went great. She went home after only 2 days. She has been suffering for so long I guess a little ole kidney transplant is nothing.
My youngest son finally got a job. He starts June 8. I just pray it works out for him. My oldest is doing good at his job, but his life might take a big turn. He has a friend that is selling his cabinet shop but the new owner wants him to still run it. He asked my son what would it take for him to quit his current job and come to work with him. So my son threw out an outrageous number. The new owner is very wealth...like lives next door to the CEO of costco wealthy and his employees love working for him. It will be interesting if anything comes of it. His friend is still in negotiations for the sale.

I know I don't comment much but I do lurk every day. I love to read about everyone's gardens and travels. Sorry about those having a hard time. I get bummed myself at times. Mostly when people let me down. Speaking of letting down, I have June for the tea exchange. I was hoping to have a little sewing surprise to add. But I just haven't had the energy or time to finish. So I'm afraid you will only get tea. I'll try to pick something fun. Does anyone have the mailing list. I have so many lists for you gals I'm a bit confused which one is for the tea exchange.

Well that's all for now. Off for a much needed brain down time session.

Good evening ladies,
I just thought I would drop in a rocking chair with my crochet and tea. Today we went to buy some groceries and not only did I come home with food but also a new car. Hubby and I had been talking about this for while. My van had over 130,000 miles and well we just kept looking and today we were able to get a good deal and have our payment dropped a 100 a month so that was even better. I know my hubby would not have done it unless he thought the car was good and the payment would help our budget. It is a silver chevy malibu. Talk about shopping now that was shopping.


As if that weren;t enough, we had someone aske if we were interested in selling our small farm. We said well we don't have a place to go to and low and behold if a friend of mine didn't see a place closer to where we wrok and things that is coming up for sale. We decided we would see where God is leading on this path. We just refinanced our house this past week and had been content that God had said we were to stay put. I do believe he has sense of humor. But no matter what if we stay we have made our payments more manageable which will help our budget and help us to get some other things paid.

Peggy jax is about 8 pounds. Getting ready to have him neutered. The little stinker won't sit still long enough for me to take his picture. I will keep trying so I can post one. He just cracks me up.

well I think I have typed a book here so off for tea and some crochet to let my mind unwind from the day.
love to you all
Tammy

Peggy,
I can so relate with you. I get so mad when that happens, you would think someone would come up with button to push to bring back what you just typed, oh maybe we are not that advanced yet.Ha Ha

Today my daughter and I are going to the big city to do some shopping. Yiippee!!!! We always have so much fun together.

Yesterday we (daughter) tilled the garden and it looks so pretty. We had to weed the onions, they are so cute, they are about 4 inches high. We really need to get in the corn, the weeds just take over so bad.
I planted a patio cherry tomato plant and boy are the baby tomatoes coming on. Can't wait to eat some.

Better let you go for now

Everyone have a great day!!

Netty

Tammy, that's some serous shopping. Congrats on the new car. Interesting about the offer on your farm. Funny how things change in an instant.

Peggy, I sympathize on the hissy fit. I had one the other day too. My iPad ate my post.

Anyway, hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Angela, I just wanted to say, you do what you need to do to take care of yourself, my MIL is just like that and that is why I have nothing to do with her anymore....I won't let her come between hubby and me....my SIL just joins right in with her too...both of them don't like me because according to my FIL they don't like the way I wait on him and do extra little things for him when he is around...can you believe people in there 50's and 60's can be jealous of me and my FIL that is 82....My MIL is my step mother in law and she is just 5 years older than my DH....anyway...didn't mean to get into that but just wanted to let you know that I believe you are doing the right thing....we are all here for you...take care..and have a great birthday.

Tammy sorry about your, SIL, my brother is fighting cancer...second time around...I sure hope they can cure your SIL with surgery...my brother is taking chemo....not sure if it will work this time...but I will pray and also pray for your SIL.

Ruthie Ann, sorry for your loss, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Peggy, I miss you girl....take it easy don't over do it...


I know I didn't scratch the surface on comment on everyone but know I'm reading and thinking of you all.

Tammy - congrats on the new car!

Angela - how did your party go this weekend? Any problems or did she behave?

Good news, we sold my Montana yesterday!!!! Doing a happy dance to be sure. Otherwise a nice quiet weekend.

DF got up at 4:30 this morning to get ready to leave for his flight to ND. Keeping our fingers crossed. I probably won't know anything until I get done cleaning the doctor's office (about 10pm) on how it went unless he gets a job offer and I'll probably get a phone call as soon as he exits the building LOL. Of course 15 minutes after he left the dogs who hadn't moved off their pillows when he was up decided they "had" to go outside so the idea of my going back to sleep until the alarm went off for me to get up went out the window. Good thing I love these furry critters but it's going to be a LONG day. Hopefully I'll get a nap in before I have to leave to clean.
