Pre-Planned Family Time

Well our first pre-planned family get together is now history. We had Tresa, Chris, Michael and Bernadette over for a late breakfast this morning. It was wonderful to just be able to spend some time together. Breakfast was great and everyone ate a lot.

Michael and Bernadette brought Teagan with them and there were a lot of dirty dog looks and only one fight. There was a little bit of blood shed, but then they all went out and played. If only humans could learn to get mad, say what they need to say, move on and still be friends....what a peaceful place our earth would be.

Everyone helped in the attempt to get Michael's old Dell working for Irv in the basement and no go. Such a bummer. Irv is going to take back all of the stuff they sold him at Best Buy and we are going to try to get someone who knows computers come and give us a hand with it. We don't think they are selling us the right things to make the proper connection.

We were able to sit and chat and it was decided that Bernadette and Michael will take the next get together at then end of February. Michael said they will come up with something good. I'm hoping that we really do keep this going. It is so nice to see the kids together and to just be able to chill out, chat and laugh together!

Just a little side note....I am reading and reading and reading everything I can on osteoporosis and the drugs and natural methods used to treat it. Scroll down to yesterday's post if you missed it. I plan to call the doctor's office today to get a copy of my last two bone density reports so I know exactly what my numbers are. I will keep you informed as to what I decide to do.

Make it a great day and do not forget to do something nice for yourself today!

Glad this idea is working out. Now all you need is some grandkids running around!

Glad to see the family get-togethers are working for you. It would be expensive and a chore for us to do that here--with half the family on one end of the country and the half on the other end.

Good luck with your research!

glad you had a big ol happy family gathering =D as for the medicine I agree that all this pill popping etc is not the first thing we should turn to. I wish you the best on your research =D

Sounds like you had a wonderful day. Loved seeing the photos of the dogs.

Smiling at the pictures and report of your family weekend. Isn't it lovely to do that without the obligation of a holiday involved?


So, I missed the!

But, I think the dog lesson is a good lesson of living in the "Now", and not in the past or worrying about the future. Those places just do not exist.

I want you to remember, if ever you are taking medication it is very important for each of us to help the liver process those meds out, so that they do not do more damage than good. Do this by eating either or both cucumbers and radishes, and eat them like apples. They are the fastest liver cures around.

Keep up your research and work a program that you believe in.

Please go visit Hay House Radio:

Skip around and find some speaker that connects with you. There are medical intuits, doctors, and loads of odd balls too!

I listen with my head phones on, while I am staring at the screen doing something else.

Meditation is taught there as well.

Be well.


Found this guy on Hay House Radio just now and he is fascinating...

I love the idea of family get togethers. We see our youngest because of the grandson but we don't see our oldest nearly enough!

Angela said...

That looks like a great time!! I see my family all the time...but I might take a hint from you and plan some Aubrey time.

The Muse said...

Great shots of family and puppies!

mmm, too bad about the computer...I know they can be aggravating.

Glad to hear you are keeping your wits about you as far as your research goes!

I just love spending time with our adult children. You are lucky to have them close enough for an occasional get-together.

Thanks for sharing the pics...
