about the spelling... I don't have a lot of trouble spelling.. I have trouble getting the letters in the right order... if I am supposed to type with my right hand the left hand goes first and visa versa... drives me nuts.
Cindy, my gosh 31 yards... you will be a very busy gal...
Mary, please take pictures of the cat house... sounds great...
I need to fix something to eat..

Well myfriend left, and I took a half hour nap:) Want to work a little more on the Irish Chain.
My parents were in the western part of Wisconsin, where my mom grew up, this weekend. She just called to say they were home, and it turns out that her cousin turned their farmhouse in to a bed and breakfast!! Just finished looking at the website-- I used to just love that place when I was little, and think of it often.... seems wierd to see it on a website, and all rennovated!! Maybe they'll give me a price break since I'm family!!!!? They named it Emil's Inn, after my great grandfather who built the house. If you want to see where I spent at least a few weeks every summer while I was growing up, check it out: www.emilsinn.com
see ya later

I just spend over ONE hour with Michael on the fone. So no I am NOT getting anything done. Jeff is just now getting up, he truly slept a hole in the day and might have been watching toons or something like that on tv while in bed. I never can stay in bed, especially when it is sunny out there. I SO need my sunshine.
Now I'm hungry and I'll go eat some raisin bread slathered with butter. Jeff brough home cherry garcia ice-cream for me to eat, so I won't loose so much weight while working my fanny off with all these quiling projects I have going on.
((((*C*)))))) If I talk to you nicely............
Does anyone know of a way to get your cholesterol down while keepng your weight up? I DO take fish-oil and know about the oatmeal. Also about 1 glass of red wine with dinner. If I don't eat ice-cream before I go to bed, my weight drops dangerously low. You think that is nice. It WOULD be nice if my choleterol wouldn't rise that far above 200. My bad cholesterol is high, and my good one is low.
How do you gain weight on a fat free diet?

Kathy - thanks I just looked and the spell check is on my tool bar.
Looks like everyone has had a good day. Also, got a lot done.
For the ones that have to work tomorrow, have a good day.
Chriss - how I miss the grandma help me with this. Come watch this with me.
"T" - enjoy the ice cream. If I was to eat it every night, don't want to think what would happen.
I'm off to read.
Everyone have a great night. Hope all will get a good night sleep.

I haven't opened the software package yet for my embriodery machine. Because I am not ready yet to tackle something new. Maybe after the funeral and all the family leaves and I can take a couple of deep breathes.
I couldn't even get on the computer last night to gloat over My Wings. It was a great hockey game.
I am off to do some more sewing If I can I will check in later.XXXOOOJudi

I am such a good dellegator.....
While I was looking trying to find my Michaels gift card, sorting out my car and purse, and re-organized some of my quilting/sewing supplies, Jeff did the dishes and got laundry started.
I really mean it you guys. How can you gain weight on a fat free diet? With my activity level I prolly need to eat 2500 calories. It is just NOT possible to DO that on a fat free diet. I can't give up using real sugar because then my blood sugar level would drop below the dangerous zone. (Besides I HATE the taste of the pink and/or blue sugar substitutes). Guess I'll go get some more red wine. Drinking red wine with your dinner cuts 30% of your fat intake. Most good merlot's don't give me a head ache.
I would LOVE to make Michael a quilt, but with everything I'm allready involved with (without taking in account I would cry with every single stitch I would do on this quilt)I would not be able to make the type of quilt Michael deserves to have.
Please keep us in your prayers that Michael indeed will be here the july 4th weekend. It is almost 80 % certain now that he IS coming.
Jeff has over 3 weeks in vacation time saved, and plans on taking a week off to be able to spend it with Michael. Also please keep me in your prayers that I will NOT have another 'episode' before, during or after his visit.
Michael also shared with me to focus more on care packages, quilts and pillow-cases and stockings for our soldiers in the hospital. Also, many end up with no actually war wounds, but DO suffer from PTSD, which they do NOT earn any type of medal for. Often they end up in a mental institution, home-less, addicted to alcohol and drugs, or prison.
Kathy ....Indeed highlight the part you want to copy and past. Short-cut key strokes for Copy is Controll C, and for paste, it is controll V.
OH lol BTW, a few of you know and even told me you would come and watch my Sky-Dive. Well........ I'll be Sky-diving with Bjorn on July 4th...Location is Perris in Riverside. North of Temeccula (SP)
PS, you only need your chute If you want to Sky-Dive more then once. I'll be wearing mine.
