May 2017 $50 Your Way Giveaway!!

Hellllo May!!! April was no fun at all!!  This stupid cold!! I finally caved and went to the doctor for antibiotics. Apparently my ‘I can power through’ hit a wall and well, just didn’t work. Stupid cough just refused to leave. I guess I should say refuses… because it’s still here!! I haven’t even wanted to play with my Cricut Machine which is MAJOR for  me!!

My postcard mystery………… still a mystery. Didn’t receive any in April. So maybe the mystery sender has grown bored?? PLEASE?!  If this is your first time here, I’ve been receiving postcards with lines to a song that I despise! The postcards are unsigned and only one or two lines of the song written out. The cards come from everywhere. Texas, PARIS FRANCE, California all around. None of them in a handwriting that I recognize. It really is a very funny gag, except I’m stuck with the song playing in my head all the time. And NO I’m not telling you the song, I know this group would take great pleasure in torturing me with more lines or photos of the song and the inspiration of the song. As close as I can tell 3 postcards remain. My top suspects are still Sherry, Dan, Selena. I’ll keep you updated.

My daughter Selena turned 40 and to celebrate her family headed to Florida and Disney-world. The pictures she sent back of Alice after the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique visit were adorable!! Have you ever seen a cuter Jasmine?

So, that’s my monthly update, not a lot of gossip or updates. This cold just did me in!! MAN it’s not as easy to bounce back at my age! Geeesh!!!

  62. I’m just having a great day hanging out watching television with my hubby and kids!

  63. Well, what started as a normal day got a kick in the butt around noon when my Mom got up to meet the FedEx guy at the door. She had turned to come back into the living room (she uses a walker & was pushing the box in front of it.) Suddenly, she said “I feel dizzy.” I didn’t even get out the sentence, “Well, sit down,” before she fell to the floor. She wanted to get up on her own but I was telling her: NO!! If you’re that dizzy you don’t need to stand up on your own . I knew I couldn’t get her up alone so I had to call 911. They came & got her to her chair & checked her vitals. Over the last several months, she has been having dizzy spells but this is the first time she didn’t get to a chair until it passed. She has several medical issues (COPD, congestive heart failure, etc.) & it does cause these spells. Scary, though!

  64. Had a great massage this morning. Then stopped at Black Jack Pizza to get one to go. IT HAS BEEN SNOWING ALL DAY SO FAR.

  65. My day is going good. Woke up this morning full of energy. Got the whole house clean. Ready for the weekend. Hope you had an awesome day as well.

  66. Overslept today so instead of playing catch up I thought I’d just make this a computer day! Love entering giveaways and couponing

  67. I am getting excited for the weekend even though the weather won’t be great.

  68. (I don’t like grocery shopping either, Sarah. Never liked it.) Anyhoo, it is a bit humid today and my sinus’s are acting up. I have a lot to do this morning but I am having a hard time getting motivated.

  69. I am enjoying my day off from work. However, it has been raining all day long!

  70. My day is going pretty good. Put off mopping pretty much all morning. So gotta get it done. We have my son’s baseball practice today, it is the last one for the season.

  71. Taking my mind off everything by working in the house.. laundry.. cleaning.. making some muffins.. anything to stay moving….

  72. Had my infusion today. Then stopped at Smashburger for a truffle mushroom swiss burger and sweet potato fries.

  73. Doctor cut back one of my meds because of the constant headaches and it worked. Today is the first day without a headache in over a month.

  74. So proud of my godson.. got a position at a florida university and settled in with a lovely apartment and a great new experience in his life….

  75. I wish there was an ice cream diet where you could eat ice cream three times a day and be thin…. LOL. Oh well… Gonna finish up a few thing and then.. work out. Bleh….

  76. Finally back at home after house sitting. I get 10 days at home til the next one.

  77. It’s been one of those days where I woke up in a bad mood & it just didn’t get much better, lol. Oh, well…those days happen. Hopefully, tomorrow can only be better. (I suspect my mood is because I’m trying to diet. That’s always depressing!)

  78. For me the end of the day.. ready to relax and read… went to the tax office and handed in the new property tax evaluation forms.. cannot wait to see what this will do to our tax bill…

  79. I am having an okay start to the week. My check engine light went on in my car so I did not have a car all weekend but all is okay!

  80. Listening to the Up & Vanished podcast and working on some projects while I do it. I definitely recommend this one… very intriguing!

  81.   Happy Mother’s Day! Went out to breakfast and then church (lightning didn’t strike me)

  82. Just a lazy Sunday here in Kentucky. I’m not a mother, but I have a mother, lol, so my Mom has been having a pretty nice Mother’s Day. She got to go out & eat with her grandkids last night, so she’s happy.

  83. I have had a wonderful day today – it’s Mother’s Day. Happy Day to all Moms out there!

  84. Hello! Wanted to wish you a very happy Mother’s Day! Hope you have a lovely and blessed day 🙂

  85. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who visit PB&W. My Mom wants to watch one of her favorite Elvis movies… Viva Las Vegas so I am gonna do that with her. I love my mother very much. 🙂 She’s the best! 😀

  86. Happy Mothers Day to all… enjoy your day and feel appreciated and loved….

  87. There wasn’t much going on today. I made something called Sweet Cornbread Cake (from a recipe I found online) but it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. Oh, well, another Pinterest fail, lol.

  88. It’s a beautiful day outside…I’ve spent most of the morning outdoors enjoying it.

  89. Had to follow boyfriend to have his truck dropped off for repair a while a go so there’s an added expense we don’t need. However, today is beautiful here in central Ohio.

  90. Gloomy rainy day today.. usually I love a day like this..but I plan on making it a sunny happy day inside…. starting with old school R&B on the stereo….

  91. We had a power outage yesterday and it really messed up all of my plans, so the things I was going to do yesterday I am going to do today.

  92. Well, just one more week & my niece & nephews will be on Summer break, which means my ‘break’ is over, lol. Actually, I’m looking forward to Summer. Warm weather will be nice.

  93. Usually not at the computer this late.. today was a strange day and the time just flew away from me.. Time to cuddle up with my book….

  94. So far my day is GREAT it is Friday. This is the 2nd day in a row I haven’t woke up to a headache. Hope your Friday is great.

  95. My day was just wonderful, but now the weekend has arrived, it’s gotten even better! Enjoy your weekend! Xo Noor

  96. Started a new house sitting job today. Well, I did have 4 nights at home…

  97. Moving early.. want to do some gardening and enjoying the sun and cool breeze….working with husband of course!!!

  98. A bit sore from yesterday’s routine, but not too bad that I can’t workout today. I just need to take off these 10-15 pounds… Hopefully I can.

  99. I’m having a good day today….scheming up some plans for the next few months….

  100. I am so sleepy. I was not meant to be a morning person, but I was up before 7 this morning because Mom needed help getting her oxygen tank ready for a doctor’s visit in Lexington. Once I’m up, I just don’t go back to bed…trying to get a few more hours just makes me feel blah when I get up, lol. But I am definitely a night owl.

  101. Needed a lift last night so I watched A Dogs Purpose……it was wonderful…if you are a dog lover you will adore this film….

  102. Trying a new workout routine. I need something low impact because I need to give my feet a break. So it’s dance oriented… I still break a sweat and get my heartrate up but no high impact from so much jumping.

  103. My day was pretty bad, it could be worse and I’m sure it will get there. Sorry to be so negative.

  104. We had such a hailstorm all across Denver yesterday. My car got a few new dents but nothing like the windshields that got broken just a mile away.

  105. Stormy here today. I was looking down at the computer & the entire room lit up like a giant camera flash, lol. (Odd for lightning to be that visible in broad daylight.) Then a clap of thunder hit that literally shook the house. Geeze. We might be in for a wild ride today.

  106. Today is going pretty good. I would, however love to take a 3 hour nap

  107. Not a good day… husband very lethargic so unlike him….waiting to hear from the hospital for the oncologist appt….

  108. The pc is putting years on me. I was going to wait till the sales but I don’t think my blood pressure will take it!

  109. Today is much easier than yesterday. The weather is cold which is unusual for Southern CA. Hope you have a great day today.

  110. Drinking my coffee and getting ready to start my day. I want to finish a project I was working on and get some cleaning done. I’ve fallen behind on that.

  111. This has been a long day. I had to get up too early & couldn’t sleep last night, so now I just wish I could go to bed early. Well, a few more hours to go…

  112. We’ve had some humdinger of hail storms this afternoon. Had almost 6 inches of hail. Luckily my car did not get its windows broken like some peoples.

  113. I have done absolutely nothing today despite having a to-do list a mile long. The reason: this sodding computer. In the end I gave up & lay on the bed with the cat. Woke up FOUR hours later. Then the pc got better but the internet went down …….

  114. Only 10 in the morning here but so far not the best. I have a special needs son and so far we had 5 melt downs and 3 phone calls from the school. Hoping the day gets better. Hope your day is great.

  115. Last week this time I was devastated… shocked… confused.. well here we are and we are going to beat this thing cancer.. I don’t care how all I know is we are going to fight like hell….. having masses said all week for him and that is a spiritual start too…

  116. New week… New mindset. Gonna get my work done and try to be more positive and enjoy my day.

  117. iT’S been a nice, lazy Sunday with the dogs, perfect weather, though we need some rain down here in florida. I did a little of this and a little of that. And it’s going to be one of those…leave the windows open kinda night. Sometimes you just gotta love Florida!

  118. I’m home again after 2 weeks of house sitting with a terrible computer. Only to have my internet down when I got home. (it’s back now).

  119. Mum & I spent the day in the garden pottering about and now I’m trying to come to grips with a pc that is slower than I’ve ever worked on. It’s taking 5 minutes just to load a page.

  120. Did some neighbor visiting…just quick to deliver some baked goodies and thanks for the help they gave us this past week… Now I plan on cooking and relaxing for the rest of the day.. wish I could have gone to mass today….

  121. Sunday morning. Drinking coffee. I am finishing the rest of S-Town (This podcast is awesome by the way!) Then I am gonna read my book.

  122. It is raining today so it is a blah day here. Staying inside watching a little tv

  123. Got everything done today that I wanted to.. laundry, washed windows in the drawing room hng new cheerful light colored curtains to raise my spirits.. put on classic disco and cleaned and then baked….cupcakes and muffins… feeling better…

  124. My day is going great we had a lovely breakfast out this morning the coffee was delightful I must add. Spending weekend time with my husband is truly the best ♥♥♥

  125. Dad’s pc finally died on Thursday night. I had an old one in the attic & it’s taken till now to get back up & running and this one is SO SLOW.

  126. I’m not sure if I have bronchitis or not but it is getting the best of me. Would love a day when this cough stops. Other than that it is a beautiful day outside.

  127. Another morning has come, but I feel mentally and physically tired. I decided that I am gonna rest and relax this weekend until Monday.

  128. I just started listening to the podcast S-Town – I’m up to chapter 4 and I am seriously engrossed in it. For those who like true story podcasts I highly recommend this one.

  129. Just did the daily word on the giveaway & noticed it said your anniversary is May 12th. My grandparents were married May 12, 1938. (She died in 2000, he died 2001. They were married 62 years.) Thinking about them brightened my otherwise rainy day, lol.

  130. Rainy, peaceful day. This is the day that the Lord has made and I am rejoicing in it.

  131. Just got home from a day of errands….tired and just want to lie down and relax until I get up and throw something together for dinner….

  132. Well, the big news around here yesterday was that poor dead squirrel in the street (literally right in front of our mailbox) & the buzzards that kept landing out there. They were huge & my youngest nephew was fascinated. “I’m going out there!!” Uhm, no. You’re not, lol. Today, I’m happy to see the squirrel is pretty much gone. The food chain at work…well, I could do without it right outside my door.

  133. Tried to get back to normal today but I am still struggling with that. Gonna try again tomorrow. 🙂

  134. A stay at home day…..waiting for the next appt so just trying to be patient.. not my strong suit at all….waiting on others not being able to do it myself is rough very rough…. making lists and mundane things to stay busy…

  135. May the Fourth be with you all! Nothing much happening here today …

  136. I am very very tired today. It’s stress related. Hopefully it will sort itself out.

  137. Great day! Many reasons. Love this weather. Saw the first hummingbird.

  138. My day went pretty good. We’re super busy at work so the day went fast. It’s warmer here today after 3 days of cold rain — sunshine always makes it better.

  139. Had a pretty good day today. Got some cleaning done, tried to walk the dogs but it was raining.

  140. Spent the morning at hospital and things went much better than yesterday.. this is going to be a long haul and I just want calm professional people around my husband…..oncology surgery clinic is our next stop….the funny thing is he is calm and collected and I am going around raising my voice… but not today….

  141. Another beautiful day in S.E. Ireland but the wind’s too cold for Mum so I bunged the dinner in the oven & took her for a drive.

  142. I’m having an absolutely wonderful day. I’m not sure it could get much better. Well, I guess maybe it could be a little better, but not much.

  143. it is early yet but so far so good-my grandson stopped by to say hello

  144. I love this site and Connie. She’s a great radio guest and look forward to talking with her each month. Lots of great items and many laughs!!!

  145. Today is going so-so…….it’s had both good and not so good moments….

  146. How did you manage to send your cold to me over 1,000 miles and thru the internet? I didn’t even get on the computer yesterday.

  147. Glorious weather today so Mum and I did some weeding in the sunshine. Great to be able to be out in the fresh air at last!

  148. It is a good day. Had fellowship and prayer with other ladies and a trip out with my husband.

  149. My day is going okay! I’m about to take one of my final exams for one of my college classes. I’ve only got a few exams left and then I’ll finally be getting my Associates Degree this month! YESS!

  150. Went to have my husbands MRI done this morning .. traveled to the imaging center that the doctor made our appt at only to find out there was no referral sent and he was unavailable to send one..I went off when the office manager got an attitude with me…wow I try never to raise my voice but I did and when she tried to blame me for lapse well.. never mind… tomorrow is another day….

  151. I can’t believe it’s May. This year has really flown by. Well, you would think May would mean warm weather would be here to stay, but no. We’re having a slightly cool spell. Oh, well, it beats Winter.

  152. I got a lot of sleep last night so today is going pretty good. Getting caught up on laundry

  153. Well so far its pretty good, the cat just started having kittens, So far there is only one kitten.

  154. My day is going good so far. It is rainy today so we are staying in and watching a little tv.

  155. My day is going good. I have had my coffee and read my email and am checking out some of my favorite blogs. I am going to take my Mom to lunch and shopping later.

  156. My day is going really good so far, but it is still early so there is plenty of time for a catastrophe to come along. Or maybe just a bad attitude or something similar.

  157. Feel a little better today. More positive. It’s hard but I am pulling it together.

  158. Saved almost 60% on groceries today so today is going pretty well. Already making another shopping list.

  159. My day is going great. We have had some sprinkles of rain. We are supposed to get more rain later today.

  160. My day is a little busier than what I would like, but i guess that’s to be expected since it is Monday. Maybe tomorrow will be better. Thank you.

  161. My day is going great! The weather here in NJ is finally sunny and about 70 degrees and very comfortable! I can’t wait to pick up my kids from school and head over to the park with them to enjoy it even more!

  162. Where did April go? May Day is a public holiday in Europe so I’m basically being lazy!

  163. So far, so good. It just started but I have high hopes ?
    I want to work more in our garden.
