Hi all! This is my second time trying to post this message, first time I hit post and got error page. Not looking good but trying again. Well had to log in twice, let's see if it'll post this time!

 

Haven’t heard from Suzi lately, only what Susanne has already past on to you all. Will email her tonight and see how she’s doing…

 

Been extra busy these last few months so having all the trouble with posting has kept me away. Not so easy now to post, before I could get on in the morning and answer/post for a hour or two with no problems. Now I’m lucky if I can post once without something going wrong!

 

Just haven’t had the time to play around trying to post lately. What with dh’s back issues, waiting to see if they’re going to do surgery and put pins and rods in or what. It’s been 8 months and still waiting…Have to go through hoops with the insurance company. Doing step by step of what they ask but it’s just dragging it out without deciding anything! Ds is graduating this years so been looking/visiting colleges. He’s been accepted to two so far, still waiting to hear from a couple of others before he makes a decision. I was on the school band fundraising committee so that kept me busy during the fall. Also try and help my friend in her store a couple of times a week.

 

So how are you all? What have you been up to, have you tried out any new recipes you want to share?

 

I have a couple that ds and I have made that are pretty good, will post them in the next couple of days!

Hi, Kim!  Great to see you.

I also have trouble connecting.  Usually have to sign in two or three times before it'll recognize me.  Lately I haven't had any trouble posting, especially if I use the REPLY instead of the QUICK.  I do have trouble with that one. 

I sent Suzi an email a few days ago but haven't gotten any reply yet.  I hope she's doing okay and will let everyone know if I hear anything.

We've been really busy too.  DH has had two cataract surgeries (November & January).  Next week he goes in to have a bunch of teeth pulled and the following week he goes in to see the surgeon who did his back for a checkup.  He's doing really well and after two years is driving again, just around town for right now, and is also doing a lot of walking. 

Congrats to your DS on his upcoming graduation.  Gee, doesn't seem possible he's old enough already. 

I'm going to be a great-grandma for the first time in July!  And my youngest GS will be 1 in a couple of months.

Hi Kim!  I have some log in issues, but I have found that if you just give the page time, you will get there.  Glad to see you!

Same here with the quick reply, just tried it and had trouble. Trying just reply this time!

That's great news about your dh, wow driving after not for 2 years, bet he's happy to be driving again. Hope all goes well with his checkup. Congrats to you, wow great grandma how wonderful!

Yes where does the time go! Seems like just a few years ago he was starting school now will be starting college! Oh and did I mention he passed his driving test Friday!

Hi, hope your year is going well so far and continues to! Yes I go off and do a couple of things until it loads/posts. Looks like we'll have to live with it this way so trying to not get frustrated lol.

He is glad to be driving, although he's not going out of town yet.  He's doing a lot of walking, almost every day now, and he's so happy about that.  He's always been a walker and I think he missed that more than the driving.

Congratulations to your DS on getting his license!

Thanks (I think) lol, no he's a good driver so should be okay.

Great that your dh can walk more now, when it gets warmer you two could enjoy an evening walk together!
