Feeling kind of blue because my meds cause weight gain,, dry mouth, memory loss( already have that, with the fibromyalgia) so it seems like I am headed down that path to Fat Lady dementia..
gotta get out of this funk ,just facing reality,, but the sun IS shining,, jus tsitting her epaying bils, copying legal papers for mom, etc,,

last year at this time we were getting ready to open the pool and I was walking with my Pooky bear,, still got about a couple thousand gallons of water on the pool cover an dno Bear to walk with .. must be hormone day..

    A spa day would be a great treat. I've never had one. If you do, let me know how it goes for you.

    You'll never be fat lady again. Most of what you feel is bloat and not permanent. Be extra careful now with what goes in the mouth. Good Luck.You need a vacation.

Are the meds helping you? Talk to your doctor again maybe he can change what is making you bloat. emoticon

    LINDA, this is after the big day let down i think. You were so looking forward to the wedding and now it has gone by very successfully. You also have still got a lot to do for your mother.

Try not to beat yourself up. it will get better and the blooming weather is enough to make a parson swear as my Granny used to say.
I am here for you. You can do this, I too took meds that made me gain weight and I went off them and felt rotten so now i am back on them and I too have to decide which way to go with this.

HUGS Take care Love you Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    LINDA it is pouring here too and very cold. We had planned to go to see our Plattsburgh family but there is rain , snow and possible freezing rain so we will have to stay home we think. We were hoping to go tomorrow. Safety is the first issue.
Lake champlain is really very high right now, so we will most likely be home for Mothers day. Pat in Maine. HUGS emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    LINDA, I am glad you got the certificate that will definitely help your Mom for sure.
I hope you are able to find the stock certificates they must be recorded somewhere, perhaps there are some references to them from a broker at some point. I hope there is someone who can help you there. Perhaps the bank manager. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonPAT

back to reality,(or, Monday, work and paperwork)

Monday, May 02, 2011

NO, I did not catch the bouquet, But I already have mine which I think is even prettier than the bride's.. the florist goofed up and made mine with white roses,(they were supposed to be white tulips) and mini calla lilies, hers was all white tulips,, hers fell apart while we were riding around in the Rolls.. Mine is still like new, in my Marguartiaville glass from Universal Studios..

The driver of the Rolls Royce is a local retired doctor who lovingly restores old cars, so he was also the chauffeur complete with white gloves, black cap, boots, liveried suit. It was nice having him open our doors for us, I enjoyed talking to him about his practice and his cars. I have not put the pics on my memory card yet,, DD will have to do that,,
I did not get lots of pics, nobody would stop long enough for ME..

Today was spent looking for papers, another trip to the bank for moms things, off to her new digs to get more papers that were signed, tomorrow after work is searching for stock certificates and hopefully meeting with a bank manager to get a Medallion guarantee for mom's signature and also find a certified death certificate for dad..

A beautiful day, nice people, a cool ride in a 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, around town, taking pictures.. I met so many people, felt comfortable in my dress, did not cry but did not get to toast either,, but I did pray with Cindy while we were preparing ourselves in church, also talked to Jeff privately and I know God heard us!

The pictures will be online in four more days for my viewing.. unfortunately, I did not get very many pics on my camera,, Being the lone attendant, I was all over doing things, had to cut up the whole wedding cake, prepare the top cake for freezing, helped bride with her veil and dress, cleaned all parts to cake for her Grandma, who baked their wedding cake,,
I am so happy they are now married and so happy. I am exhausted too..

    Now it is over and you will have lots of pictures from them to cherish. These people are so lucky to be so special to you and you to them I realise now.
It seems this year has had quite a number of big accomplishments for you Linda. You got your Mother settled in to her new place and now the wedding is over and you have August to look forward to for your trip. It is so nice to have a plan for the future, I sure wish I was able to do that for DH and I.
I am truly sorry I missed those two days. Pat in Maine.

Sounds like you are just as glad you didn't have to make the toast after all that worrying. I'm sure the prayers covered everything anyway. Glad you had a fun experience, and was able to help out so much. Now to relax, you will probably find you kinda miss all that excitement. I have to know, did you catch the bouquet?
