    Wow, I have been busy all morning adn thought I would check out the porch. No one here except Julie, Carla cl and Laceymae. Where did everyone go? Of course I keep forgetting the people on the leftcoast . They might just be getting up or something. I have forgotten the time difference.

    Speeking of sleepy I am and I got up early to get ready to go to the doc and get my flu shot alotng with DH. Now I feel better. The shot has heped me ALOT!! I kmnow everyone is different but it sue has helped me.

    Any kind of cake anyone makes is fine with me, German choc. sounds great even if the others were already eaten up (-: !!!

    Thanks alot Linda and ck for starting up this new birthday thread. That will all the birathday I get today. Tomorrow I get dinner out.

    Julie and Lacey - Thanks so much for the well wished. I can use all of them I can get. Thought I would check inagain as I am eating some lunch. Then it is back to work to get some more stuff done that I need to finish before we go away for mon and tues. The weekend will be very busy and tomorrow we go to pick up our new car andit is not nearby since they gave us a good buy. So, it is up and atem early again tomorrow.

    Bye for now. I'll surely be back to check on the party. I hope that Joan gets to come to to her own party, even if her birthday is tomorrow.

    Hope to see more at the porch for the party when I get back.

    Lots of hugs,

    How did I miss Granni getting a car for her BD, I guess I need to go back and re-read. I admit I was in a rush this morning. I had a man come over today whoohoooo. Get your minds out of the gutter, he finished staining my deck rafters. It was more than I wanted to do and can't really do the ladder thing so I mentioned to my nieghbor down the road and his son came by. I am so glad that is done.

    I made chocolate chips cookies and ran by the moonshiner, err liquor store and got more Baileys and Buttershots and some amerito sp? cause I know granni likes that with her baileys.

    We got ballons, streamers, clowns and a pony, with Linda's surprise it should be on heck of a partayyyyyyyy.

    Jodie I want to join the band wagon for you NOT to move close to him, that is asking for pain and heartache. You have suffered enough. Why do you want to move? Just be patient and get your emotions undercontrol, take care of Cody and don't put any more stress on you than necessary. Moving is like the number 3 stressor of life.

    Julie things will settle in soon, sorry your daughter has a medical condition, but thank goodness it is treatable. I am amazed that you have kept on plugging along.

    Ok I need to take the girls for a walk before the party and take more pics to post. In case anyone missed my post about the trees changing here already. See my profile.

    i have been eating the pineapple cake all i taste is sweet. then i had a bowl of homemade chix noodle soup...i taset is bitter and salt...i'm sure it really does taste good...

    about the move thing...why you wonder? i have upstairs unit...stairs and have to carry laundry a distance...to laundry room.

    then i i brought this little wanna be idiot to my apt on saturday night...i didn't know he was messed up in things until he opened his big mouth...anyways...the rapist was in my apt as well.

    i put a request in labor day weekend to have the hand rail fixed....i just called housing about it..i voucher inspection would not get approved because of the handrailing and i could slip and fall and sue..

    my bath tub was painted over and it is all peeling up.

    the toilet valve was painted over and you can not turn it on or off..

    they never steamed cleaned my son's bedroom after the ceiling leaked allover his bed and carpet...plus they were walking in my living room area tracking in water from their boots...

    i have to listen to barking dogs all day and night long...the manager owns a god as well..that barks so i know that issue is not going help to complain.

    the other apt. from apts. is so much quieter and i could get amy own private bath room in my master room. newer...and then i the laundry rooms are in almost every building. it is right downtown...you could walk to anywhere you could think of or ride your bike..

    more storage space by far. there are limited areas that take have section 8 vouchers.

    also i am not allowed to take 12 units in college...or i will be evicted. every year at this apt i have to fill out paper work stating all my personal business over and over...

    I thought I would peak in her to see what was going on in this very sleepy porch today. Flada to see at least Jodie and to check in with us besides, CK, Lacey, Julie and Linda.

    MMM, I am smelling some delicious ribs. I'm ready to eat myself. However, have to go and get DH fed and off to his meeting so I can come back for a bit. Don't let the surprise out of the cake yet.

    Oh, actually the car isn't exactly forr my birthday and it is for both of us although he say he got the stuff on it that I wanted. Of course he also said he wanted all the upscale stuff on it and that we should enjoy it while we can. We'll see who uses it the most. He says I will. It probably will take awhile for us esp me to get used to it. It's an 08 Toyota Highlander. We have neer gotten so much stuff on a car and I can't believe what they actually even have availabale non

    Gotta run now.

    Somethin smells good here, put could you cut the cake first???.

    Granni I don't think I can top a 08 Toyota Highlander, I saw a commercial today, so did ya get that rear camera for backing up. You really need one in these tall SUV's, took me a while when I got my Jeep.

    Hope you got DH fed and off to pay for the new toy.

    I need to head for the hot tub for awhile, work tomorrow so can't play out late tonight. BBL-Carla

    lovely dancers...was in the bedroom folding clothes and I thought I heard the music start...

    Granni...someone has been very good(naughty) this year...a new vehicle. I got tools last year.

    Girls, now me and granni are the new security at the spa so we gotta keep everybody in line on the porch...NOT!!!

    hope it is a happy one.

    glad everyone else is enjoying the party.

    I must have had to much Baileys or Absolute as I was typing away and hit something and the whole thing went POOF !!!!AAAAAAACKKKK

    Thank you all so much for this great party. It has been so much fun. Wish Joan was here to also help celebrate. Hope she is OK and maybe celebrating a bit early.

    The decorations were so pretty and those ribs were MMMMMGOOD !! I had to eat it even after I helped DH to eat some sausage and sauerkraut.

    Julie - Thanks you for the lovely tutu. I will save it for a very special dance party. I love purple too even though I like pink better.

    CK, Linda, Lacey, Jodie everything is really great. Aftr I had to start this thing all over again I lost the ability to read all your posts to answer. Also, my mind is like you know wht ???

    Jodie - I know how much you want and probably need to mover but closer to you know who is NOT a good thing, hon. So either try and stick it out a bit longer or find another place away from him.

    I was starting to ready something about laceymae and that is when I lost everything. So, in order to find out what she was doing or any other wild things going on I will have to let this go and then check again.

    This purty hic I mean pretty, no party, hic has really been alot of fun. Will get off and check to see what you all are really doing. I'm doing just great -hic, I think !!! Hey were is the Baileys and Amaretto??? Who took it ???

    Back soon!!

    Now I'm checking on all of you. Gee thanks for those Chippendales. The last time I saw guys like that was , gee I can't remember it was sometime ago at someones bachlorette party.

    Linda - Thanks alot for the Chippendales and for the Baileys -- hic !! Thanks you also for the 4 leaf clover. Hope I do get to win at least a little bit of money. It all has been too fantastic. !!! That spa is really great too, nice and HOT !! Any tips on the Casino (besides don't put any money in the slots (-: ?)

    Hi CK, thanks for helping Linda in starting up this party !

    Yeah, Lacey and I are VIP Security people at the other SPA and Resort so we have to try and keep everyone and everything on the up and up, if you know what I mean, hic !!! Oh dear, I think the Baileys is starting to go to my head. Not sure if I should have another one as it will be time for my nighty nite meds soon (-:

    Sorry Joan has missed the fun party and all the great food, drink and entertainment. Hope we see her tomorrow.

    I will be gone tomorrow all morning for sure picking up the car. Believe me, I have never gotten anything like this for a present, trust me. I usually just get taken out to dinner which we will do tomorrow with some friends. We were replacing our 10 year Crown Vic with almost 100,000 miles on it. He sold it to a friend for a nice price so both were happy. He said that he tried to get it delivered on my birthday but it didn't quite work. Actually it came earlier than expected. It will be interesting to see how much I do drive it. I know in the beginning I will probably be afraid to put a tiny mark on it. I will really take it slowly driving it. Yes, I said that if we got it I wanted either the camera for backups or the beeping sensor since I have trouble turning my neck. I now drive an Explorer so it will be fairly close in size I think, it. I am sure he will drive it alot also or more, we'll see.

    Thanks alot gals for the great party. I had so much fun and hope everyone else did to, hic !!!

    Not sure if I will be back again or not tonight. We will see. Might check in to see if there are any partygoers sleeping under the chairs or in the spa. Wouldn't want anyone to drown.

    Lots of BIG hugs and blessings to you ALL !

    Gee, the purty, I mean party or whatever it was really great!! Thanks again to all who participated.

    Hope to talk to you all tomorrow. Didn't see anyone in the spa or under the chairs and the place looks pretty neat ( I think) at least for now. So I am off to get ready for beddy bye.

    Yes, I miss our Joe/Joe, too Hope he is OK . He surely must still love his OS or atleast have deep feelings for her. I know he is a very caring person. Hope he come back soon at least to visit.

    What another great party we had. I must say we really do know how to have great bashes! I almost threw my back out trying to get up with the Chippendale guys. BTW I have seen the real ones in the late 80's. That will get a girl goin,lol.

    Granni glad you had a good time and hope your able to learn all the gizmo's on your car. When I got my Jeep it was totally differnet than my old Buick. You will be like Linda in the rental car goin down the road head lights flashing, windsheild wipers going to town and keep blowing the horn trying to set the cruise contol.

    Well I have to get ready for work. I get the pleasure of taking my girls with me today. They are no longer free roaming and it has been hard but needed. It is deer season (bow) here and the Butter, the neighbors dog, has already brought some deer legs to the yard.

    You know there is always bad with the good. So I live in a beautiful place that it is full of wild animals then the animals that hunt them down take what they want then leave the other stuff in the woods. CYA later-Carla

    Gee, haven't heard from Joan in awhile. I hope she is doing OK? Sorry she missed the Birthday Bash last night. yes, it was a good time for all of us that were there. Thanks again my friends for putting it on !!

    Yes, we went to pick up the new car. It is beautiful (silvery color) and sort of scarey almost. Oh my, all those gadgets and buttons to push. It almost feeds you while you drive. Just have to figure out what everything does so I don't have an accident while trying to find the right buttons while driving !!! We were there for quite awhile and the young man (cute as he could be) old as my son I would guess, did a good job in showing us everything and going through and doing alot of the paper work. He was quite knowledgeable. DH drove it home and I survived the drive home in the Explorer . Now we have to really try and figure it all out ourselves. Can you believe that it has seat warmers on the passengers side? I can hardly wait till winter. To hot now. You don't even need a key for the ignition , just the "smart button" I think it is called. Of course you have to have the pad on your person.

    Jodie - Hope you did geta tummy ache from eatin all the pineapple upsidedown cake !!!

    CK, Linda , Lacey , Jodie thanks so much for the party last night. It was great. Have to go now and do some things and then get ready to go out for my birthday dinner tonight.

    Joan, hope you are OK and have a nice birthday. Hope you are just busy having fun.

    Bye fow now.

    More hugs,

    and anyone else i have forgotten forgive for i am not well...we all ready new that...

    funny story- a couple days ago a neighbor friend of mine said that her new psychologist didn't reccomend the intensive outpatient therapy...because that for people that needed to be really in a hosipital...

    i said so it is true i am really crazy...we both laughed..kaiser has referred me to go there a few times since the rape.

    i am just getting two days a week now w/rape counselor instead...and now that i know in my head and heart that erik had a part in it it is sort of a relief for me. but also a let down as well.
