Mrs. Dolittle, I would love to take you to various Illinois Pawn places. They spoil you. It's just a hoot to trade, barter,and see what deals you can make. What is cool is that if you are fairly jewelry saavy, you can control your prices. I weigh my gold before I bring it, checking spot gold prices for the day, and then I know what parameters I will barter in. I just find it so much fun. I am lucky to have 3 different pawners who really do good by me. I wish I could take you with me! I wish I could take all of us ladies. Man, we'd have fun! Bella, My boss and I say hello, but I have not really talked to her since we have had problems. It is very stressful. I know she is judging me the minute she hits my classroom. I have never had this problem in the 20+ years I have been teaching. Frankly, it is totally uncomfortable and I feel stressed a lot of the time. Not good at my age, or any age, for that matter. You certainly had your share of fatigue and extreme overwork. And of course, liars for bosses....What can I say. I am just happy you are happy now. Life is too precious to have to deal with negative energy....  (Feb 20, 2013 | post #9957)

Mrs. Peacock, I have been married 31 years. How bout you? It's not always easy, but all in all, I love my husband's companionship still. We are, thank God, good buddies. I get sad sometimes, watching us both age..but it beats the alternative. I had lots of boyfriends in my 20's. I always liked the guys...I hated single life, however. It seemed like my girlfriends were never happy unless we were searching for guys. It grew tiresome....  (Jan 19, 2013 | post #9578)

Mrs.Dolittl Pretty clothes you bought. I love Coldwater Creek. Their fabrics are so lovely and high quality. So many classic and classy, lovely things! Bella, You must be sick at heart from all the stuff on Lance Armstrong. Oprah interviewed him, but I did not hear it. Ladies, When did Misty become raven haired? She looks so harsh. Maybe she is trying to get back to more natural color than the blond, but the black is scarey looking. Remember Gomez and Mortisha? She looks like Mortisha! Night, night.  (Jan 15, 2013 | post #9480)

Ladies, Thought I'd give you my Sensa weigh loss so far. I have been sprinkling for about 2 weeks. First week...5 pounds off, but this is typical for me any time I try something to lose weight. This second week I lost 2 pounds. I sprinkle the stuff on everything, and it definitely makes me full faster. Too soon to judge if it will really work. I need the next few months to really judge...I am aiming for 45 pounds. Oh joy. One week at a time...I think I will go school walking. I figured out a path around my school building. Will walk before I go home...I see the doc for a check up in a month or so...  (Jan 6, 2013 | post #9355)

Bella, Congratulations on the graduation. You must be a proud momma. And thanks for the pictures. Another milestone crossed. Ladies all, I started Sensa today. You guys probably all know what it is from watching ShopNBC. Anyway, you sprinkle it on all your food, and you are supposed to lose weight. Only used it on a few meals today. I am sick of looking at my fat face, and all of a sudden, my blouses are not fitting. With high cholesterol and blood pressure, I thought I'd give it a try. I will keep you updated. It really sounds too good to be true...Anyway, I just won a patent leather taupe Dooney bag on EBay. Just love it and it's like new.. Any Homeland or Dexter fans? I love Sunday nite tv cause I love both shows...anyway, gonna go relax. Work tomorrow, and I will certainly hug my little ones I was telling you guys about. A precious, precarious world we live in...  (Dec 16, 2012 | post #9083)

Hi Ladies, I so deeply connected to the tragedy, that I had trouble teaching today. In particular, I teach four second graders that I just adore, and the thought of someone hurting them utterly appalls me. Two of the kids are from Iraq, one is from Mexico, and one from India. Precious is precious. Kids are kids. They are our future and hope. How could this happen? Sadly, I feel like if someone is determined enough, they find a way to be violent...Parents were even calling my Illinois school to make sure there kids and the school was safe. Unimaginable. The whole thing....  (Dec 14, 2012 | post #9052)

Hi Mrs. Dolittle, I am here! I just find that after work, I get so fried lately that I don't post as much as I would like. Thanks for asking about me. I'm well and kickin'! Just gettin older and more tuckered out from the kiddies. I hope you are ok. I see you guys have been talking about moissonite. It's an interesting stone. Kind of diamond like with a touch of body color. so much nicer than cz! Hi all! Please have a happy turkey day tomorrow. I see you guys are shopping Shop NBC with Chuck and interested in Moissonite. I have problems with all the cheap shows on KTV. Our economy has really changed the landscape of TV shopping. It is a shame... anyhew, going out for an Indian dinner. Tandoori chicken....yum.... .  (Nov 21, 2012 | post #8772)

Hi to all my lovely ZaZa's, Thanks to all of you for asking about my husband. He wound up having to stay overnite at the hospital, but he came home today. He had a double hernia, and surgery was more complex than expected. However, thanks to painkillers, he is doing ok at home so far. When the painkillers wear out, he just keeps popping more, or he says the pain is very bad. But day by day, he will heal. Thanks for all of your prayers. I was one worried nut case!!! I lost my poor sister a year ago this week, and health of my loved ones lays heavily on my mind sometimes....so thanks to all of you. You guys are so special. Bella, Did you hear that Lance is no longer battling the charges against him? He is a class act. It's just enough already. Let the poor man alone. Mrs. Dolittle, I am glad your little girl is ok. The little creatures fill such a big place in our hearts. Nora, Have you made any turtle soup in the last few days?How is your back and are you still happy with your pink diamond ring? I can be really obsessive when a piece of jewelry is not just right. I'd be the nut to get bothered by the white diamond trooping around amond the pinks. But you really cannot see it at all! Copythat, What is the Manet ring? Should I go look at it? ZaZa's. I have a trivia question that has bugged me for years. I know a line from a movie, but cannot remember what movie I heard it in. My husband says I dreamt it up. That it isn't a line from any movie, and he's a film buff. The line is,"So, what's the story, Richie?" Does that sound familiar to anyone? I use the line sometimes when I ask someone what is going on. Then I get bugged cause I can't remember where I heard it....  (Aug 24, 2012 | post #7700)

ZAZA's, I am happy you have had luck with Chuck's pieces. That is good to know. I like watching him even when I do not buy from him. My husband is having hernia surgery tomorrow. I will be very happy when it is finished, and I see his handsome face. Like I said, never a dull moment.  (Aug 22, 2012 | post #7671)

Bella, i can't believe it has been a year since you lost your mom. Time just marches on. It's been a bit over a half year since my sister died. I feel like I just told you girls. Nora, Good luck with your sister. i still remember how my sis thought I didn't help my mom enough. I definitely can see her way of thinking. I wish she had talked to me while mom was still alive. Now they are both gone, and I would give anything to hear their voices... Mrs. Dolittle, Loved the video,although rats are not my favorite. Even affectionate ones. Rats and opposums. Don't like them!! But I did appreciate the video! Good luck with your mom in law...  (Mar 27, 2012 | post #5569)

Nora, So sorry about your dad. I hate those assisted living places.They're not too big on assistance. Keep us posted. Seventeen pounds in a week is scarey. Does he need blood work to see his general health? Mrs. Dolittle, I got your ebay items. Very cool! You know I have been doing EBay also. Too much, but I have gotten great stuff. Hi ZaZa's...  (Mar 11, 2012 | post #5288)

Nora, You definitely need the house in your name,and you need to be the executor of his estate. If it is in his name only, it will go to probate, and that can be a lengthy process in the courts. I hope your dad feels better soon. It does not sound good. Just so hard as they get old...  (Feb 28, 2012 | post #5081)
