    BOY your page is hard to comment on. Kept logging in but no place to write.

Sorry for more snow, it gets here tomorrow.
I hope you can find some thing to do that you really enjoy and then hope you are able to get it done. HUGS, think happy thoughts today. I understand its just a suggestion.

My mother used to say when i said I am not happy.
" HAPPINESS is just a state of mind".
I think I will just make myself a poster of that when I get a minute and I will remember my mam and see if it helps.

I am so glad i found you today, being on your page just SPARKED me i hope it does it for you too, HUGS LINDA this too shall pass. Pat in Maine.

    A little bit wandered down south here, just a "dusting" so to speak.
Sun keeps having momentary breakthroughs and I try to soak up each one of them. Is rough being solar-powered!
Hang tough. Maybe you will catch a break and get some rest and relaxation this weekend! (I see that snicker!)

    LINDA, I am glad you have finally found some relief. emoticon

I wish I could at this time. It hurts to sit and it hurts to stand I am so fed up with Dr visits.

    LINDA, I am still trying to adjust from quitting a medication 2 weeks ago. They said withdrawal was 8 days to 8 weeks. You bet I will go on like this for every day of those 8 weeks.

I hope you will be getting better soon, Take care my dear LINDA.

I Hope Mom is settling in.

    LINDA I am so sorry I have lost all of my subscriptions. I had a weekend with grand daughter in hospital on her eighth birthday still not much news. I have read all the way back to the first. It has been a whole week and i am sorry I missed it all.
Yesterdays blog sounds like you have a place where they care enough to call and tell you Mom is doing OK, that is hopeful. We too have had lots of snow and now freezing rain and bitter cold weather. My feet are bad and I have to go to Portland foot and ankle. I have pain in both feet and I have to get it checked out. I have definitely checked the subscribe box so i should be able to keep up.

The day after Monday

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

A typical day in my life: went in basement to do laundry before getting in shower,, heard loud fizzing noise behind me: water heater spewing scalding water from the top, and bottom!! try to turn off emergency water supply, handle broken,, DD starts sucking up water with steam cleaner after we get water main shut off,,
rubber gasket on steam cleaner breaks,, no suction,, we plug in my contractor's shop vac,, very little suction,, I put call in to plumber,, he is across town headed to another job, buts turns around and heads our way!! DD figures out that vac hose is not screwed on tightly, we resume water sucking with shop vac..
plumber and I get hoses form my garage to empty heater, spray nozzle is frozen on hose, so he gets his short hose, not long enough to reach my tub,,,
We get rest of hot water in tub, I finally get sprayer off so he can use hose to drain water,,
he heads back to their store to get new heater, and fittings, ,, more water sucking..
I had taken my water pill, so no toilet-flushing of course,,,
guy gets back, we use my hand truck to get new heater down the stairs, move old one around corner in basement, we cannot horse it up stairs alone,, guy calls another employee who is about 50 miles away on another job, to help get old heater out,,
first guy leaves and about an hour later, both show up and get it upstairs, cannot lift it in van with 30 gallons of water in it, so they decide to drain it right on my only sidewalk to get in my house,, tell them it will freeze and we will fall on our dupa`; guy shovels cocoa colored water into snowbank..
now snowbank looks like we had major diarrhea in our front yard!! tee-riff-ick!!

In the middle of all this, (while we are freezing in our bare feet on cold,flooded, concrete floors),assisted living place calls, we are both afraid to answer, never good news with mom, just to tell us she is doing great on her first day...
can hardly wait to see what tomorrow brings:it is another mom day, we are going with her on dial a ride to doctor appointment..after I get out of work...

    I'm so glad you are alright!! emoticon That could have been very dangerous! The plumbers seem to real professionals, though! It's great that he went right over to you even though he was going to another job! I guess an exploding hot water tank took priority over whatever job he was originally headed too.... emoticon
