      hi all



      My son patrick and I got back from the bowling birthday party today.

      He had a good time bowling.

      tomorrow I have to help him with a school project. He will be making a farmhouse.

      My husband Pat and I will be married 13 years on Monday.

      we will go out to dinner on Tuesday as he has to work Monday evening.

      He gave me a beautiful 36 plant of violas in colors including yellow, white with yellow, purple with yellow, lilac and dark purples and white with purple around center.

      They are beautiful.

      Take care.

        been very hot and humid here all summer.

        am on vacation this week and going school shopping again today for clothes.

        So far, we have gotten socks, underwear, shirts and pants and today we will be looking for jeans and shoes.

        My vegetable garden is doing very well. Have lots of cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans and squash.

        Also working on my mail. Have sent out 22 letters so far this week. Have 28 to go.

        Take care.

          I hope that everyone had a nice Mother's Day.

          We went to dinner to Outback . It was myself, Pat, Patrick and Pat's mom.

          She is going to be 83 in August. We can see how much slower she is getting around now.

          Hope everyone else enjoyed their day.

            I have been busy working in both my flower as well as my vegetable garden.

            They are coming along slowly due to rain.

            I picked royal amethyst roses as well as red roses.

            They were both beautiful.

            Patrick will enter 4th grade in September. He will be going to summer school from July 24-August 10 to have some special assistance with his writing as well as his reading and math. He is at a grade 3 level but they want him at a grade level by September.

            take care.

              hi,


              I picked green beans today as well as the first cucumber. Can't wait for the first tomato.

              patrick has two more weeks of summer school.

              I am on vacation August 14-18. Not sure as yet what plans we will have if any as money is pretty tight this year.

                hi all


                I am on vacation this week. Good thing too as my 1998 chevrolet monte carlo is in the garage having some engine work done. Had to replace my oil lifters including fix the leak in the intake gasket. Going to cost me about $900.00.

                last month it was the air conditioner condenseor which was $600.00.

                that is why in the spring I am going to be looking for a new vehicle especialy since this one has 136,000 miles.

                  I was on vacation last week. Was not able to go anywhere as my 1998 chevrolet monte carlo was in the shop and I had to pay $870.00.

                  Last month it cost me $560.00.

                  i am going to look around and hope to get a new car by March or april of 2007.

                    My brother left here on Tuesday to go visit his wife's cousin who lives in Canada.

                    While they were leaving on Friday, they were delayed outside of Buffalo on Interstate I90 in the heavy snow.

                    I am sure that it was an eventful expeirence for his wife and her son as they are both originally from the Philippines.

                    Does anyone have any plans for Halloween?

                      Hi All,

                      My brother left for Canada on Tuesday to visit his wife's cousin.

                      While they were leaving to head home to Maryland on Friday, they were delayed on Interstate I90 outside of Buffalo for approximately 5 hours.

                      I am sure that it was an eventful experience for his wife and her son as they are originally from the Phillpines.

                            I have been busy with my vegetable garden. I have flowers on my early tomato plants and I have flowers forming on my pepper plants. The rest are doing well.

                            Work is coming along well. Patrick is out of school and did very well on his report card.

                            He will enter fifth grade in September.

                            My husband takes care of him during the summer months as he does not work since he is a school bus driver. That way we save on the cost of daycare.

                              It is going to be in the 40's all week here which is like a heat wave for us.

                              Gasoline prices vary but where I live they are $3.15 per gallon.

                                  they are expecting a snowstorm this evening.  Approximately 1-3 inches here.

                                    Just found out on Friday that my son Patrick has been diagnosed with Scoliosis.  He will be going to a pediatric spinal physician to see if he needs to be fitted for a brace to be worn at night.

                                    his
                                    curve is now at 20% and if it goes to 45% he will need surgery.  I was
                                    diagnosed with scoliosis when I was younger but I was able to do
                                    exercises to strengthen my muscles and never needed a brace or surgery. 
                                    Hopefully, the specialist will recommend the same but only he will
                                    know.

                                    Hope everyone else is doing well.

                                    today for dinner we are having stuffed peppers with italian bread.

                                      Hi all

                                      Just found out on Friday that my son Patrick has been diagnosed with Scoliosis. 
                                      He will be going to a pediatric spinal physician to see if he needs to be fitted
                                      for a brace to be worn at night.

                                      his
                                      curve is now at 20% and if it goes to 45% he will need surgery.  I was
                                      diagnosed with scoliosis when I was younger but I was able to do
                                      exercises to strengthen my muscles and never needed a brace or surgery. 
                                      Hopefully, the specialist will recommend the same but only he will
                                      know.

                                      Hope everyone else is doing well.

                                      today for dinner we are having stuffed peppers with italian bread.

                                      take care

                                        Hi,


                                        Sorry that I have not posted in a while.  Things here got a little hectic.

                                        First
                                        of all, my son Patrick who is 13 has been diagnosed with scoliosis.  He
                                        has a 20% degree and will see the specialist on May 4 to see what needs
                                        to be done if anything.

                                        should his curve go to 25%, they will
                                        fit him for a brace.  If the curve goes to 45%, he will need surgery so
                                        we are hoping that they can try something else before any type of
                                        surgery.

                                        Also, my husband has been diagnosed with diverticulitis
                                        as well as a hiatus hernia.  He has to follow a strict diet now to
                                        prevent the hernia from going into esophageal cancer. 

                                        Things at
                                        work are depressing.  My immediate manager has lost her position at
                                        work due to downsizing and we are waiting to get the name of a new
                                        manager.  Her manager was also
                                        released due to downsizing.  Hopefully, the new manager will be just as
                                        good.

                                        I worked in my flower garden last weekend.  Last fall, I
                                        planted hyacinths as well as crocus and pansies and iris.  The iris are
                                        growing larger now and the hycianths and crocus are in full bloom.  I
                                        have already decided what I am going to grow in my two vegetable gardens
                                        which will be:  tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans and carrots.

                                        Hope everyone else is well.

                                        take care.

                                            hi everyone,


                                            we are fine here.  My son Patrick gets out of school for the summer tomorrow.

                                            my husband got a job driving school buses for the summer months so he will be working July 5 - August 11.

                                            I am on vacation July 11-15 and August 15-19.  We may go away for Labor Day Weekend as I have september 1-2 off.

                                            Hope everyone is well.  My vegetable garden
                                            is growing great.   I have flowers on pepper plants, brocolli is
                                            growing bigger and my cucumber plants are starting to climb the fence
                                            and I have little tomatoes on my grape tomato plants and all the other tomato plants are producing flowers.

                                            We bought a new vacuum.  Got it on HSN.  It is a Dyson DC25 animal. 

                                            Was expensive but I hope that it works better than our 19 year old Hoover Canister Vacuum.

                                            Will let everyone know
                                            when it arrives and we use it how we like it.

                                            take care

                                              sorry for the late response.

                                              My husband is still recovering from his surgery on September 30.  He is now out of work until January 3, 2012 as he still needs time to heal inside.  he will go back to doctor on December 8 for another PSA Test and we hope that it comes out zero.  If not, they will need to do a cat scan and find the cancer cells and zap them with radiation.

                                              Patrick is doing well in school.  First marking period has ended and he achieved an 93 in English, 86 in Social Studies, 95 in spanish, 90 in Technology, 88 in Science and 72 in Math.  He will work on his math in second quarter.  He joined the Club SADD and this thursday he will  volunteer to help out feeding the senior citizens a turkey dinner.  On Monday evening he is going to stay after school to help bake the pies for the dinners. 

                                              It will help him out socially.  He is starting to do better in school by meeting other people within his age group.

                                              Hope all is well with everyone else.  I will try to post at least once per week starting next weekend.

                                                Just wanted to let you know that first:  My husband Pat is still doing well.  He had several tests done to see if he had colon cancer and throat cancer.  No

                                                  He will also have another test done in April to make sure that there is still no sign of any cancer in his system.

                                                  My son Patrick is still wearing his brace at night. 

                                                  He is currently 5 foot 5 and 1/2 and will see doctor again on June 27.

                                                  Things at work are the same.  We will find out on April 2 or 3 whether or not we are still employed!! Will keep you updated.

                                                  My flowers are coming up at this time.  My hyacinths are blooming.  They are so pretty in pink,

                                                  my crocus has bloomed and is done.

                                                  My daylilies as well as my iris are growing bigger and my rose trees have all of their leaves coming up. 

                                                  Hope everyone else is well.

                                                  take care

                                                    Today I worked in my vegetable gardening taking care of some overgrown weeds. 

                                                    I
                                                    also planted some more green bean seeds.  The onions are doing so well
                                                    as well as the tomato plants.  The cucumber plants should climb the
                                                    fence shortly and the other vegetables including squash, cabbage and
                                                    peppers are coming along.

                                                    today for dinner we are having chicken, carrots and mashed potatoes.

                                                    I
                                                    am working all this week and will then be on vacation July 2-6. 
                                                    However, my husband Pat will be working the week I am on vacation.  He
                                                    will work all Summer until August 10.

                                                    I am also on vacation August 25-31 so we hope to go away for about 4-5 days that week just to relax.

                                                    next year, I hope to go away to Cape Cod or visit my family down in Georgia and North Carolina.

                                                    We are going to a graduation party next
                                                    month.  Patrick will be 15 on July 18.  We are going to have a cookout in our yard the first weekend of August.

                                                    Take care
