Hi Everybody! I feel as if I am not back yet......just too much going on here.....

Daughter #2 flew to CO. with my gang last week..(they were in CA. for the previous week)....the week went super-fast....we took her to DIA late Friday......was sad to see her go. The girls had such a great time together......at least they got to see one another before they thought they would......I charge my life away with AMEX, so they used points to do all the flying.....husband said it is taking more and more points to go shorter distances though......sigh...

The heat is taking getting-used-to.....no more ocean breezes for us...... But we love it here...... Here is my latest update for the mosquitos: the neighbor loaned me some lotion that is made by a lady in Boise....all natural, no poison. (I'm senile, did I already write about this?) Anyway, their friends took it to Africa and didn't get any bites. It works. I have ordered some and received it......so, that's my latest on the pests.

Last week, we went to the Budweiser plant, which is about 15 minutes from the house....the girls are 21 now, so we got to sample varoius beers....one is flavored like raspberries (or something), and one is blueberry, (and it's definitely blue!). We're not beer drinkers, but still, it was fun. The Clydesdales are there......such gorgeous animals! They're spoiled, but so beautiful!

We took them to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, so that was a fun day....

AND, we went white water rafting down the Poudre River..III and IV rapids.....it was so much fun! Not that far from here either! We want to do it again! We had a blast!

Mall shopping was fun.....there is a nice one in a town called Broomfield......not super-close to the house, but we are geting used to driving to get to point B.....

Okay, now gotta go look for a patio table.....ours was destroyed in a high wind while we were gone to a birthday dinner on the 21st....the wind caught the open umbrella and broke the table in a zillion pieces.....no more glass tables for us. Welcome to the wild west!

Well, I took too long doing errands with my kid.....he was looking at the stock market when we got back.......guess we won't be buying a table today.....especially not after last week.....
Don't know whether to laugh or cry......sigh...

Yes, indeedy, I am a vision of loveliness.
Pretty soon it'll look like a 'butt'.......

TFW....the one time I took steroids, I swore I would never take them again. I can't say I tried all that hard, but I never got back to the size I was when I began to take them. Granted, they saved my life, but my belly size was never the same again.

Ketabcha....GREAT news and I bet you don't look near as rough as you think. In Cyberland you are always in your 30's and hot looking.
I only get UTI's when I take medication. I have to drink tons of water if I'm taking something.

Hope, Camper, Wurzig, OhioGirl, CW, Bob, maureen, moved, lcsd, D&J, sabbytabby, SXMgirl, kentuckydad and ANYONE I just missed.....I hope you have a wonderful day!!
And I hope you are having a good day, too, what with all those curly hairs and painted nails!

Yep, GREAT NEWS for Keta! So glad you are on the mend!

Embarrasses my daughter to death when she goes with me. I must have had a handful of people ask about them, one guy wanted to know what time to be over!!

I wish I could blame my weight gain on the Lyrcia but I think it's the camping That's to blame.
Yea, the weight gain must be from all that 'frozen exercise' you are getting down by the river.....

Steroids do good work but man the side effects suck.
I am like Linda Blair when I am on them....

My only problem is I am still blaming the steroids I used in December for my weight gain...LOL

Feel better
I had a fight with my boyfriend and went to the movies and saw it by myself......I think I was 20......my college room mate was not home that night either......I slept with the light on and with one eye open....

Girl, I am really starting to worry about you.

Somehow that reminds me... I get to go have my mammies gramed today. Man, the year goes by fast.
