Adult Sons and/or Adult Daughters / New Here
« on: September 25, 2013, 03:33:34 PM »
I am mandogirl55. I am new to this site and so thankful to have found it today-all the posts have helped me to know I am not the only mom out there whose adult children disrespect her.

Grab Bag / It's Our Webmaster's Birthday!
« on: July 12, 2013, 01:43:47 PM »
Today is my youngest son's, 58th birthday!! Thank you, Kirk, for Webmastering us! Love you hugely, Mom ! :D :D :D

Three years ago today our Webmaster, DS Kirk, launched My deep thanks to each and every one of you for your contributions here. Without you, it would be an empty page. And I especially want to thank you for letting me be your cyber-mom!  :D

In honor of this occasion Kirk has restored the "edit post" feature, as requested! And he is working on LC's idea for a new category under Resources: "Needing To Vent And Be Heard. There are times for most of us when we don't need advice or simply aren't ready for it. We want to share what we are holding in and have that be OK. Just knowing that someone is listening, has "been there' and understands can sometimes make all the difference."

Sending love...

Grab Bag / Having A Bad Day
« on: May 09, 2013, 07:03:23 PM »
If I had thought of it…I would have created a "Bad Day" category on this Forum because we all have them and we need each other when that happens. So, I hope this thread will be a kind of Welcome Mat that's out for us at those times. Thanks, LC, for the idea.  :)

My bad day is being sick and having to go on antibiotics after my 5 day vacation with DS in California last week. I have COPD and my guess is that it's from the recirculated air on the plane. There was also air pollution north of L.A. (Ventura) where we stayed plus a 6,000 acre wild fire close by and smoke.  :(

Grab Bag / Greetings from California!

Kirk VandenBerghe here, Luise Volta's son. She asked me to send you all her warm greetings from Ventura, California. She's having a wonderful time at her workshop and thought you might enjoy the attached picture.

OK, so lets start signing up and offering our ideas here for our first Annual WWU Fantasy Mother's Day Cruise!  I'm in! Sending love...

Grab Bag / Washington "Wilderness"
« on: January 25, 2013, 08:30:05 PM »
My little, ground floor studio HUD unit in the woods is 440 sq ft. My happiest childhood memories are of our summers…spent in our log cabin in the Huron National Forest near Sand Lake, in Michigan. This little spot of mine with windows on one side only is decorated in "Early Log Cabin." LOL! The paintings and prints are of wild life and even wilder scenery. All three walls have drift wood "sculpture" hanging there…"originals" created by Nature. Today I ordered a floor lamp that has two bears climbing up it. I deserve this. It makes me happy.  ;D

Grab Bag / Weight Loss
« on: January 07, 2013, 01:40:33 PM »
Since it's a new year, I thought I would post the number of pounds I have lost and my new goal…(since I've reached my original goal of 145 pounds.) Anyone interested can come over to Several of us are over there. I'm "Weegi" to anyone wanting to "friend" me. :-) I started out at 205. I'm 5' 3". Very slow and discouraging process over the next two years. Then, in 2010, I went to MFP at 187 pounds. Today I've set a new goal weight of 135 pounds! Why not?  :D   

Grab Bag / Ouch!
« on: November 23, 2012, 12:19:30 PM »
Had a great Thanksgiving…but…a neighbor called last night to ask me to come see her refurbished chandelier and I tripped over one of my planters by the door in the dark and fell. I landed on the right side of my face in the grass. Unfortunately, the way I feel this morning tells me that it was yet another whiplash-type fall, snapping my head back on impact with my full weight behind it I can tell that I've re-injured my neck and shoulders where I have permanent damage from a whiplash when I was 25. (Dr. is out until Monday.) I have a black eye on the right side and wrecked my glasses. I'm not a pretty sight and hurt all over. Used ice last night and this morning and am going stay in bed for a day or three. Thankful for books. It's a great comfort to have the distraction. Love, Princess Grace

Grab Bag / Happiness
« on: October 15, 2012, 11:11:17 AM »
I hope this isn't a viiolation of copywrite: everyone I know gets TUT on a daily basis. (I will ask Kirk and delete it, if indicated.)

"Neither a promotion, losing weight, finding a soul mate, writing a book, nor becoming a billionaire will ensure happiness.

Nothing ensures happiness. No destination is great enough. No dream come true will do.

Because happiness, dear one, that's not present at the start of a journey will not be present at its end."
