    Wonder where your nephew gets his "sense of humor"? emoticon Obviously, he's learned from the best!

Sorry to read you had foot surgery. That had to suck given the winter we've had . . . Heard about people using knitting needles, and yardsticks, and coat hangers (although I would NOT recommend that) to reach an itch inside a cast. I've also heard using a blow dryer on the cool setting. . . not sure how it works but the source said it did. The good news is - that's proof it's healing - I know what you're thinking!

Hope you have someone - aka your neighbors - that are giving you some "sporadic TLC".

Take care, my friend . . .

    My Honey had a cast and he was scratching and when he got it off his skin was just starting to get red but not infected and dr said thank goodness it was time to come off cuz who knows what could have happened!

I hope you start feeling better soon - I am an air head cuz I don't understand why they put a hook in your foot? Why not just the pins?

I feel for you with the kids- I took my niece to her jr farmers class while her mom went to get medicine for their dog. I was never there before and I was running after the group. The other moms just stayed together and talked but my sister said to stay with my niece. One of my niece's friends said while looking right at me - Where is your mother? to my niece. I was like - where is YOUR mother? LOL...the term Bratcula, which I have never heard & thank you VERY MUCH, definitely applied to her :)

    Okay, so there was nothing in there with your doc about going ice fishing... That neato lil' hook could fit a worm and catch us some nice lake perch from Lake Huron!! Slap a ziploc bag over the rest of your foot and drop it in the water: you have not lived until I cook you a batch of fresh lake perch!! toss in some home fries, greens and homemade huckleberry pie ... emoticon emoticon

Keep your hot little hands off your foot: the guy is an artist,, plus he does not want to have to do the surgery all over again!! He probably DID tell you about the hook, you were busy eating those darned V-pills like skittles!! He was probably scared shi--less you would get a staph infection and lose your toe!!
Now you're talking hacking off one of your fingers to transplant onto your foot!! The biggie here is spending some serious time on IV's in the hospital!!

My friend died from blood poisoning after getting an infection in her foot!!
(BTW, since you are not staying married to this guy, I DO hope you made sure he wore a gaggle of finger cots or many pairs of gloves to ouch your body parts!! ) You can never have TOO MUCH protection! Yer pal, Lin

    I had to laugh at your description of the scissors and cutting one tiny bit by one tiny bit - what could a bit hurt right? And then trying to stuff the packing back in to make it like it never happened. I love what the doctor said "I'd like to have a good relationship with you, so don't ever do that again" but he does sound like an arrogant SOB "you did that to MY work?" I can just hear the outraged tone of voice and see the calming breather. All of that made me laugh - but I truly am sorry you're dealing with the pain and a hook in your toe and I hope that you recover as quickly as possible and are better than ever.

It sounds like nosey kid has too much time on his hands, but then again I could totally see my kid asking someone that... He knows it's not his friend's mom so it must be his grandma no matter how young she is. Little kid logic is like that.

Enjoy your time off, no matter how you got it.

    As always, you make me laugh with your take on the simplest life experiences. emoticon

It makes me sad to read that you are hating your job. You used to have such a good relation shop with your boss, and you worked so hard to get that Master's degree. I hope things will improve for you to get you back to a feeling of satisfaction.

I am soooo gullible, and have fallen prey to these kinds of things too many times. Not to say that I don't care and want to donate to charity, but I feel violated by all of the times I am accosted in a day be total strangers asking me if I want to donate to this charity or that - in and out of the supermarket, on the telephone, in my email . . . you get my drift. I've been burned enough that I go out of my way to avoid these types of encounters.

I do believe that everyone should have a chance at a good life in this world, and I'm so sorry you had to experience hunger and neglect in your childhood.

I do put items in that collective shopping cart almost every trip, I donated an entire household of furniture and items to charity, and do my best to "pay it forward", and my conscious feels better for it. We're all softies at heart . . .

    One of the reasons I have food issues at this age of my life is because Mother used food (withheld) as a punishment. I was a very bad girl, apparently, because I seldom had 2 meals a day let alone three.

Speaking of forks, my dad had to teach me how to use one when I went to live with him at age 13!

I often give to charity, but I hate going to a store,fast food restaurant etc. where I feel that I HAVE to donate. I love that you gave her a basket of non perishables. That was really sweet.

Why do they ask those same questions in EVERY meeting and job interview? I think it's a severe lack of gray matter creativity. Put your feelers out there and see what happens with new job possibilities.

    My go-to "napkins" come on a lovely tear-off roll, so handy! I tell everyone that they are modern-day Irish linen cloths. If you really want fancy, they come in various designs according to the holidays!
Now could I ever relate to the committees, retreats, team-building exercises etc. ad nauseaum. I don't believe they ever worked, only served to irritate and then everyone went back to doing exactly as they did before. My only consolation was to think, at least I was being paid to listen to this foolishness, and I got out of working a busy day in the clinic (nurse). Perhaps your present job, as uninspiring as it is, may enable you to focus on other things you really want to do, such as writing (?!).
Personally, I quit my job a few years ago, now have set myself up as a health care consultant. I can do most of my work from home and don't have to sit on a single committee!!
Love your purse, by the way!
Take care,
Kathy

So sorry that the job isn't your thing any more . . . after getting the grad degree, it's kinda hard to cut loose I'm betting.

LOVE the bag -- wow! These kids are keepers for sure!! They totally got that you aren't a napkins person . . . I'm good with paper towel. Or a Kleenex. Or even in a dire emergency a chunk of toilet paper if it's not too formal an occasion . . .

I LOVE your purse! I am SO jealous!

But you missed the chance for a great closing line: either that the purse came with napkins in lieu of that useless paper filler or that you now have something that you could use to cover the next bird carcass on your porch when those kidlets are due to come by.
