  1. LovesLife


    It's been awhile since I've checked in, so I just wanted to let everyone know I am doing well...7+ years later. It makes me sad to see how many people I knew here are no longer with us, but also inspired by the ones that are. I advocate for lung cancer research & speak about it to anyone who will listen. Life is great...my oldest started University this fall & my youngest will be following next year. I work part time (love my job) & hubby & I are keeping busy. I am so grateful to everyone who helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life...a special shout out to
  2. Thanks Judy...miss you guys & so happy to see your smiling face!
  3. Thanks to you both!!!
  4. Hi folks...all is well with me-still read occasionally but life is busy, which is good. I have been advocating for lung cancer awareness & will be on the Edmonton news morning show on the 22nd of November. I have never been able to find a pearl/white ribbon & would love to wear one...any ideas where to find in Canada? Thanks for any help.
  5. Yippee - I beat most of you here today! Morning Bud and rest of the crew. Last night hubby and I went to our friends house to watch UFC which was a blast. Unfortunately, the roads were absolutely miserable on the way home, especially the highway...just like a big skating rink and the snow was blowing everywhere. Today my plans are to stay in with the kids and relax (except for some snow clearing on the kids part!) Hubby is already at the shop working...he is a workaholic that guy. Bud, I so admire that you don't watch tv; however, I believe I am an addict. No hope for me whatsoever to
  6. Awesome news Becky! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Linda
  7. Hey Judy - just waiting for pizza to be delivered and then we are heading to friends to watch the UFC fight. Yes, train travel in Canada - only for the very affluent. I'm not certain why it is so expensive, but anyone I know that has travelled that way has lots of bucks to spare. They said that the cars are very luxurious, but I would rather RV it or take the plane as less expensive. That said, I guess if you win the lottery you can happily book train travel. RV'ing is very popular so there should be lots to choose from on that end. I was shocked at how little Eric has to pay for trai
  8. You guys are early birds for sure. Judy MI - I am a little ahead of you because I woke up at 9:30 am ... that is very unusual for me as usually up at 8 on weekends. We stayed up until midnight too - watching first season of Modern Family. My friend had told me how funny it was so I picked up the season yesterday - oh my, we laughed so hard. There were actually tears a few times from all of us from the laughing. I also love Criminal Minds, doctor shows, etc. One of my new favorite shows is Harry's Law (Kathy Bates). I can't watch reality tv - except for American Idol as my daughter l
  9. Judy - what a good idea. I will do a search and see if there is any within a reasonable distance from us. We haven't had a puppy in a long time (since the Rottie and we bought him 19 years ago-been gone almost 7 years-sigh)... we took Jasper when he was 8 as some people my husband knew were moving into town and he liked being on the acreage. I loved him so very much and only wish I had more time with him (the only downfall of taking an older dog ... not enough years with them). Our current dog is a blank-a-poo (Chiraz) and we got her when she was 2 from my previous hairdresser - she di
  10. Wow, you miss a lot when you come to the boards late! I received the early morning phone call that the school bus was not running today due to freezing rain conditions. I had a million things to do today (okay, a little exaggeration perhaps) so I drove my son to school. He wasn't really excited about that prospect - not too sure why? My daughter's school recommended not to come as they would just be watching movies so she went to work with her dad to earn some money (not really excited either - we aren't the most popular parents here today?) I pointed out to her that if she wishes to
  11. Barbara - I am so sorry to read about your sister Diana. She sounds like a true angel in every sense of the word and I can't imagine how painful it must be for you and all who loved her. I know it must be difficult that you didn't get a chance to say good bye; however, I am sure there was no doubt about the love that you all shared. What a wonderful tribute the service was to her life of giving of herself and helping others. I hope that brings some comfort to her daughter, and all the family. Wishing you peace and comfort in the difficult days, months and years ahead without Diana. Hugs,
  12. Morning! The weather outside is actually very nice for this time of the year. We are supposed to get another snow storm this weekend, but as long as there's no freezing rain it is doable. Judy KW-it sounds like you had a very nice birthday celebration. What a nice casual friend - sometimes even my close friends aren't that thoughtful?!? Can't wait to see the picture of you in your new hat! Hope Stan has a good fishing trip and you get your project in the BR closet done. Lily-glad you are home for a little while, and I am sorry that you have some unpleasant things to deal with on the ho
  13. Good morning! It is going to be a beautiful, non -40 day out today and I am rejoicing. Judy MI - how are things on your end? I was watching the news last night and it sounds as though this is a gigantic storm that is hitting a huge area. Hope you and Randy are hunkered down and safe - the mailboxes can be propped back up and I hope that's the worst that happens in this storm - just minor damage. Libby - yep, my line of thinking about the fishing rod was like yours (stick/spinny thing-all good) but I quickly found out this was not the case. BTW, I can ride my stationary bike for 30 mi
  14. Annette - sign me up for the EVTB team (love it!). As to Ginny's question re: mascot - picture Bruce with the EVTB logo shorts & shirt, flip flops (I'll get those since Jimmy Buffet confiscated his) riding the llama...what a wonderous sight that would be. We would be a household name in no time! Look out Olympics - here we come!!! Oh yes, and I see how people try to count certain activities as exercise - I used to tell my husband that vacuuming was exercise (he laughed but I still believe that!) Bruce - message received about phoning for fishing rod - I guess that would be like clot
  15. Morning folks - sitting at a balmy -28C this a.m...hey, that's better than -35 anyhow! Thoroughly enjoyed our pyjama day yesterday ... today, fully dressed and ready to go. I will drive the kids to school, run a few errands and then return to work on business stuff here at home. Annette - don't mom's just have the best timing for phone calls?!? Mine seems to have a sixth sense about how to catch me at the most inopportune time - usually to ask if I've seen the weather report (as if looking outside isn't sufficient-I must hear it from her per the weatherman on the news channel!) Oh wel
