  1. Mt. Rider, I am so sorry about Koa. We said goodbye to our dear Lady in Nov of 2019 so I sure understand how you feel. It takes some time to heal, as you know. Lady was 17 years and 9 months old. You love them like part of the family. Which they are of course.
  2. Just popping in to say a few things. I usually read comments at least a couple of days a week and pray for each person and for Koa. I am sorry that Koa is sick and about all the issues going on in each of your lives. Praying for resolutions. Jeepers, you mentioned maybe needing some mineral. If I don't take magnesium citrate, I get serious muscle cramps and also tend to get choked on my food a lot. Magnesium deficiency affects ALL muscles including heart muscle, and smooth muscle. If you are taking a proton pump inhibitor for GERD, you will most certainly have a magnesium deficiency along with potassium deficiency. My daughter takes it for anxiety with her doctor's approval also. Something to check into for sure. Littlesister, we are actively decluttering. So tired of all the stuff! DH is a handyman and keeps all kinds of spare parts, hardware, etc. to help folks out so we hope to get it organized. Sometime we spend literally hours looking for stuff we need. I heard an organizing blogger say that the average person spends a certain number of minutes a day (which I can't remember!) and it added up to 2.5 hours in a year. We are way above average on that!! It sounds like you are doing a great job. Every time I read one of your posts, I'm inspired to keep at it! Lots of other things going on here too. Harvesting lots from the gardens and still picking blueberries. My friend from church and I are traveling an hour each Tuesday night and volunteering doing some health coaching at a Diabetes Undone class. It's an 8 week class and we have two more to go. Last week, my family and I canned 55 pints of corn. We hadn't had a good sweet corn crop in years so that was good. About time to get our bins of apples too. We couldn't get nectarines, peaches or Asian pears this year because the frost killed most of the commercial orchard's crops. We got all our gardens out late and they are just now in peak producing mode. Praying for a late frost! We've been able to share lots of tomatoes with family and friends, sweet corn too. Now the bell peppers are coming in. The deer keep our okra eaten down to about 8" tall so no crop there. Enough yellow squash and zucchini to freeze and share for the first time in a few years. The deer fence is working. We only have a couple or three coming in instead of 9 or 10. They have figured out how to jump through the top five strands of electric fence tape (not electrified) so we plan to get chicken wire or something similar and put it over those tapes but that will have to wait until we're not so busy. That will make a semi-solid surface that will be over 8 feet tall. Take care everyone and blessing to you all.
  3. So sorry, WE2. Praying for your family.
  4. Oh my! What a time you have had! You are in my prayers.
  5. I just saw this thread. Momo I am so sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you, for peace and comfort.
  6. I also wanted to comment on your mother and how she played along with the story. I'll bet that was a good entertainment for her. I also bet she had a lot of good advice to add to from her own life experiences.
  7. I DO remember that you got very ill now that you mentioned! I am glad you're back and can't wait to read your continuation of the story!
  8. I would love to read your experience! Please do post it!
  9. Well, I thought you were there but wondered why you said you were disappointed that you couldn't interact with me on that thread. I haven' seen the revisited thread. I'll go check it out.
  10. No, I got really busy about that time. My mom decided to move in with us because her eyesight was getting worse. Her sense of smell is is really bad and she was tasting moldy food because she couldn't smell it or see it, and many other issues. So we had a lot of rearranging and purging to do. It was fun how everybody worked together to tell the story. I could hardly wait for the next episode from whoever decided to contribute! Were you a member of Mrs S then? I was thinking you were but I can't remember who all was.
  11. Wow! Eleven years ago! I can hardly believe it's been that long ago. I guess there have been many changes in each of our lives since then. Some new people on here and some no longer with us.
  12. A bear can smell really, really strong too.
  13. Oh, that is precious! I teared up just reading it. Thanks for sharing it with us.
  14. Miki, I'm sorry! I know that must have been disappointing. Yes, God knew and He will surely help you get that paid off soon.
  15. We get photocopies of each check along with the monthly bank statement. I never did sign up for online banking for our personal account. Our Internet is so unstable and we have power outages often. Not so many as in the past though, thankfully.
