Good day ladies...hope your day is going well...mine isn’t too bad...Daughter is in school...neice is off to the exhibition grounds...suppose to rain like cats and dogs today...hope she still has fun.

I will be home alone for most of the day...that’s how it usually is but that’s ok...I am use to it...I kind of like being by myself...I seem to be more at peace and stress free.

Not much else to say about the break in...I still have not tackled the walls yet...although it depresses me seeing them like that I just can’t bring myself to start them...but when I am ready I will get them done.

I am not sure if I mentioned this but my grandson has gone to live with his mom in Scarborough...he has been gone since July22...he seems to be doing well there...but he called me last nite and asked to come home...he is lonely and misses me...as hard as it was I told him that he had to try harder with his mom...I also promised him that I will come and visit when the baby arrives...it was hard hearing him say these things and it broke my heart...but I was strong and did not give in...

I have been thinking about starting my own business and have looked into it...I have been a long time user of Undercover Wear products and have decided to be come an agent...I have already been in contact with a team leader for this part of the country and turns out there are no agents here in Thunder Bay...so that is a plus...also the new catalog with the new Christmas line is coming out soon and I am excited about that...I figured I needed something to get me out of the house more...interact with others and make some friends...I think it will work out good...Wish me luck!

I am also going to be starting speaker school soon...it is 14 weeks long and that will help me in the line of work that I am choosing to do...

I got my MRI results back...My knees are a mess...I am waiting for an appointment to see the specialist and my doctor told me that I should expect surgery of some kind...not looking forward to that but if it will help me then it is the best thing to do...

SO that’s it for now...my life today as it is...life goes on and so must I.

    • Hi Karyn,

      I can understand how much your grandson misses you.  I don’t have any grandkids, but I have a daughter and school kids (our school starts after Labor Day).  Whether it’s the beginning of the school year or the middle, some little ones are often in tears because they miss mom.  I just assure them that mom is also thinking about you, give them a hug and if on the playground we hang out together and a smiley or heart sticker does the trick.  Your grandson may be older than our elementary kids, but young or older we always have a yearning for someone.  I sense you are a wonderful person!  The positiveness in you and the many fab40 ladies is helping me become a better person.

      Good luck in your leadership classes to start your business.

      Hope all goes well on your medical condition.  Please keep us informed.  Take care.

      All the best,
      Linda happy

    • Remember dear heart no matter what you are going through Our Heavenly Father is with you. I will share something I do when things get rough. I visualize in my mind, I am a little girl again, braids, pretty dress, ankle chocker socks and all, I can see Jesus, and He is holding onto my hand. I know wherever we go, He will never let go and in my mind, I feel loved and reassured that no matter what the outcome, it will eventually be alright. I have had a number of adjustments since May 2009 but you know what? I am still here and so is He. As long as I am here anything is possible, miracles happen everyday.
      Regarding your knees,  have you ever considered taking shark cartiledge? Check it out on the internet. My aunt has RA and since she has began to take it her pain has greatly lessened. Just a thought, I am sending good thoughts and well wishes your way so that you will have brighter daysheart

    • Thank you ladies...always great to hear and feel the support from my fellow fab sisters...happy

      Linda...I understand what you are saying...but the reason it is so hard for me is that my grandson lived with me on and off through the years...he is 10 1/2 yrs old and this time was for 3 yrs...so it is really hard for me not having him around...but good side of that is that now I have more time to concentrate on myself...still miss him but it is all good...we all agree that it is the best for all of us involved.

      starting a business venture is a great idea. it’s certain to take your mind off some of the things that you seemed to be preoccupied with.

    • Hang on Karyn it does get better, just take it one day one step at a time, and about your knees I too had to have a couple of knee surgeries in the past on the same knee and I told I would need some work on the other, but GOD!!!! That has been over 5 years ago and the knees have been great, so I say to you my friend, trust in the Lord, "look to the hills from whence cometh your help, it comes from the Lord." my prayers are with you heart
