Hi all.
Have posted a link to a facebook page where I have entered a completion with a health insurance group. If anyone wants to show support for me I would be so grateful. Hoping the link works.
Cathy if there is a problem with this please remove it. It is not about the money for me it is more hopefully to inspire others to lose weight too, If you go to the link go to the lower right side and it says show support. You will find me there.
hugs, tina.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

G'day all.
Vicky I think we all at times in our lives get that 'light bulb' moment when we realise we are heading down a path that isn't right and we have to re alter our course and get back on the right road. Prayers you are on the right road now and your husband heads down his.
Dee my DH had the same problem but his was a virus. Prayers that it is all that it is. Glad your DS got his eval. Hope you are getting on with your packing and sorting.
Cathy I am so pleased for you. Finding the right people for our kids is hard but when we find the right one it is so good. And also having somewhere for your older boy is also fantastic. Maybe they can help him as well.
Georgia we all have those times. The dreaded menopause can send our weight up and down like a yoyo. Just keep on moving forward and you will lose the weight. I believe in you.
Thankyou for all your encouragement. You are awesome too.
Shopping today and then sorting out the dreaded bills.
hugs, tina

Vicki I had my moment 3 months after I separated with my first. We went out to lunch to "talk". All he wanted was to get back with me because he was broke. Wake up call for me and I have never looked back. I am praying you have the strength to do want you want to do.

Cathy that is awesome news on Kelas. How much of a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. It is all we ant for our kids. Someone who truly understands and can help us.

Becky hope all is well in your world.

Tina glads you survived the wedding. I think your sisters are jealous of you in so many ways and the only way they can get back at you is to hurt you. What they don't know is that you are a strong and wonderful woman and you do not need them to succeed. You only need TINA!!!!

I am so busy with my course and with all the other emotional issues that have been going on her of late that my weight is going up instead of down.Getting me down these days ..............

Enough pity party. Hope you all have a magical day.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Vicky, prayers and hugs for you to stay strong and follow your heart with wisdom! That's tough, but you can do it!

Dee, prayers and good thoughts coming your way! I know sometimes your white count can be high after an illness as we've run into that ourselves. I am no expert though!

Everyone, hugs!

We saw the new PsyD for Kelsa and he is WONDERFUL!! He really gets it with Kelsa and with what I want for her. After all this testing no one ever told us what Kelsa's IQ number meant! He said that she is at a college age level and that was on a test she did when she was 7! Kelsa will do testing on the 14th of August and we get results the next day. YAY! Hopefully this will help. Also this practice has a lot of great people and possibly one that could help my now 20 year old Aspie.

Sending big hugs and prayers to everyone!!

Dee,
Fingers crossed that its not something serious.

Georgia, thanks for the words of encouragement. I know what I have to do I just have to stop worrying about his feelings and do what I feel I have to do.

Georgia and Tina, thanks for your advice. I am a worrier and need to let that go as it just raises my stress level. HUGS!

Vicky, stepping back and listening to your gut is definitely the way to go. HUGS!

Everyone Else, do hope all is well

Me, hanging in there. My DH got a call from the doctors office that his blood test came back showing a high white blood count so had to go in yesterday and 're-do it.....white count still high. Now will be sent to another doc for further evaluation. Doc's office is making the appointment hopefully it will be soon as our health coverage is due to run out on August 31st.

My mind is racing as to what could be the cause of the high count. This morning have to take DS for a speech/language evaluation......finally got the referral for it. Waiting since April.

Sending hugs to all.

I guess my knack for wanting to please others despite my own feelings kicked in again. I've soul searched and realized that the time I was spending with DH was more because it made HIM happy while my doubts were still there. I felt into the old trap of not wanting to hurt his deign and overlooked my own. I told him tonight from here on out visits for him with the kids are just that-THE KIDS. Not me. Have to take myself out of it. No matter what he feels I have to trust my feelings.

Hope I'm not headed for another dramatic episode emoticon

G'day all.
Cathy so glad that you were able to sell some of your school stuff. And what a clever DH you have. And to get cheap new things. A win win win for you and your adorable kids.
Dee I agree with Georgia. I have three like you son and I used to worry everyday. But now whether I worry or not their lives have already been mapped out for them by someone who knows more than I do. I can guide them, encourage them and hopefully give them the skills to make it in this world in whatever capacity they can. You are a great mum and both your kids will be fine.
Georgia heading for the weekend. Not many more working days to go. But then I start work.
Cleaning day today. hugs, tina

Dee just worry about today and tomorrow will take care of itself. Things work out in the right ways at the right time. When you get to your new home see if you can get your son into some sort of daytime centre that caters for our brighter children. They can teach him wood working skills and other hands on things. A friend's son goes to one and the put together toys for charities and for selling at markets. (Wooden toys). They also get their clients to paint them and some who are able to to to shape the parts. Just an idea. Gives him purpose and social interaction.

Tina glad the wedding is over and you do not have to see "those" people anymore.

Vicki stay strong and happy it is going to work out shortly.

Cathy great that you may have found some maths books that will help.

Waving hi to Becky, Amanda and everyone else this old brain has forgotten.

Hi Everyone,

Vicky, sending emoticon emoticon your way

Tina, glad the wedding is over. Sorry your sisters are causing you pain. I am glad though that others at the wedding acknowledged the changes you have made. Hope the skydiving plans go well.

Cathy, Congrats on selling your older curriculum and also getting some new things for your family.

Georgia, hope your day is going well.

Becky, did not realize there was an HO version of Thomas. Glad Caddy was able to part with some things.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. In the house we had in Indiana the walls of DS' room were painted Thomas blue as was his dresser. Also had big stickers of Thomas and friends on the walls. He is 21 now.....but still childlike in many ways. Which worries me with regards to his future......

Sending Hugs and good thoughts to all.

Tired and hoping to sleep well tonight...didn't last night.

Sold a bunch of stuff at our Homeschool groups Used Curriculum sale yesterday. Made some decent money, still have a lot of stuff left. The kids were really good and the day went well. then had church. So tired and spent today! Was very thankful for the sales though.

Today my hubby had the brilliant idea to look on ebay for a math curriculum that works well for LD kids called Math U See. I've heard nothing but good about it and think it would be great for the girls. Found some great deals, so now we wait!

Hope you are all well. Prayers for those struggling!

Hugs, Cathy

Dee we are moving Ben into his new room soon. Can see that most of what he has he will want to keep. The room is smaller so it will be fun. Prayers and energy for the next few weeks.
Vicky sending you hugs. Glad you and the kids are safe and well. Prayers that whatever is going on in your life you will feel peace and safety. hugs.
Georgia weather is the same over here. Four seasons in one day almost. Hope you have a great week.
Becky hope that your week goes wonderfully for you.
Wedding is over. Was hard at some points but many came up shocked by how much weight I had lost. Sisters basically ignored me but I expected that. Came home inbetween the service and reception and over ate. Know that I am not strong enough to deal with all this crap yet.
Just have to keep moving in the right direction. Haven't even thought of a new goal yet. Looking forward to the skydiving in the next couple of months.

Dee, we were shocked when Caddy was finally willing to part with most of his Thomas the Tank Engine toys at 13. What helped - he has an HO gauge Thomas set that we started collecting for him in London, and we have not painted over his Tomas wall mural (he won't let us). Good luck!

Hugs to all for a wonderful week! Be strong!

Vicki I hope your days improve. Hugs.

Dee I used to be a bit of a hoarder but njow like the simplicity of things. I still have way too much stuff in my kitchen cupboards but the rest of my stuff have definitely been thinned out. My aspie son is a hoarder and that was one of the issues we had too.

Hi Everyone, hope you are enjoying your day.

Georgia, oh my on the flat tire. That's a pain to change when it's daylight, can't imagine doing it in the dark.

Tina, are the kids back at school? Were you able to get Chris' paperwork for the license?

Cathy, Vicky, Amanda, Amy, Ari, Laura, Becky, Jelly, Jennifer, and Anyone Else I may have missed do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. Not much going on except we got through quite a bit of ds' stuff. Even got him to part with some things he has been hanging on to that are for much younger children. Several things he will not part with....ie., his Thomas the Tank engines collection that has been growing since he was around 2 yrs old, his Yu-Gi-Oh cards and the Pokemon, Digimon and Bakugan collections. Dh and I are two packrats who have raised our kids to be packrats as well.....LOL!

It will be interesting to see how dd fairs with going through stuff as she is determined to hold on to things.....OY!!!

Georgia sending hugs. That has happened to us on the way to a wedding and DH had to change the tyre on a very busy road wearing a very white shirt. Hope the rest of your weekend is going better.
Dee at least your dad says he is going with you. And this way you can pack up with one less person to worry about. Once you are settle I am sure he will be fine. Hugs as you tackle the last of the packing.

Hi Everyone, hope you have a good day and enjoy the weekend.

Becky, the therapist sounds amazing. Love the Green light/Red light journal. I may have to borrow that as well.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Me, nothing much happening here. Dd went through part of the closet but unfortunately wasn't able to get to all of it as ds has a ton of stuff piled in front of it. Need to have him go through all that before you can do anything about the clothes and things. So will work on that tomorrow.

Oh by the way, my dad is leaving in the morning (saturday) to head back to his GF in Indiana. He claims he is coming with us when we move, but also seems to be very upset about all that is involved with it. I think he is going back to Indiana cause he doesn't want to deal with this...but hasn't really told us what is on his mind.

Tina so sorry for the hard decision you have had to make. Hugs

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Cathy, we are very fortunate to have found the Center for Learning and Behavior Solutions here in Irvine, CA. Everyone there has been so helpful - the therapist, the mindfulness coaches, etc. I wish everyone had access to them!

Dee, glad you got your walk in! Also glad you were able to get your dad cleaning some stuff out. A productive day!

Becky, how brilliant your son's therapist is! That is a great idea with the Red Light/Green Light columns. I may have to use that for my rather anxious ones!

Tina, I am so sorry about your dear Chester. I am an animal lover as you know, so I know this is so very hard for you and a decision you didn't make easily. I respect your decision completely. You have to do what works for you and your family. What other's say or think doesn't matter, though I know it can both us. Hugs!

Georgia, hope you have a break soon! You deserve it!

Hugs and happy thoughts to all!

Dee, great job on the donations and exercise. emoticon

Cathy, Georgia, everyone else, hi! emoticon

Caddy talked about his high school worries with his therapist yesterday. She has him keeping a 2-column journal for the next few weeks - red light thoughts (anxieties) and their green light counterparts (how to turn them positive). For example, if he is sad about growing up so quickly, he can look at all of the autonomy he is gaining (freedom to do things on his own, driving in a couple years, etc.). I think this will be a very helpful exercise for him.

G'day all.
Feeling flat today. We have to give my precious Chester away. Chris was playing with him the other day and Chester turned and bit Chris's arm and made it bleed. I know that it was in play but I panicked and since then whenever Chris plays with him I get panic attacks. Most of you know that five years ago Chris and Kim were attacked by a dog and we spent three days in hospital on heavy antibiotics because the dog had a disease and also plastic surgery on Kims face and Chris's arm. They still wear the physical scars today and I wear the emotional. I know that Chester would never bite but there is a little bit inside of me that is so scared that he will if I don't let him go. He is only 11 months old and the new family has kids around our kids ages. I know a lot of people will judge me but if I didn't and something happened I would never forgive myself. He is the gentlest dog in the world and I love him heaps but I love my kids more.
hug, tina

Georgia, do hope you are able to take some time for yourself.

Becky, WTG on the De-cluttering. Doesn't it feel great.

Me, hanging in there. Got my dad to go through some of his boxes in storage and tossed some things and made a trip to Goodwill with the rest. Hoping to begin tackling the kids closet today. Dh and I got a 45 minute walk in before breakfast. So feeling good about that.

Big hugs to all for stress relief and other needs! A lot going on for team members - wishing everyone peace.

I spent the morning reorganizing the kitchen cupboards and getting rid of some stuff. Feels great! Taking Caddy to his therapist session shortly to work through latest anxieties - I am so grateful that he really likes talking to her and that she is super supportive. Then home to organize some more. Lovely day!

Tina good news on the aircon. I think you will lose the weight after the stresses of the wedding. It is holding on to you because of feeling so worried and anxious. Hold your head up hi9gh, do not waste time looking at them, look over them and passed them. It was freezing here yesterday morning but a bit milder this morning. You too are experiencing some crazy temps too.

Dee I am so proud of you for decluttering. Woo hoo,

I am so tired and just need some time out for me. Alas too much to be done these days and it is exhausitng me. Talk soon.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Hi Everyone, Do hope all is well.

Georgia, hope the day has flown by for you at work.

Tina, I do hope you are able to enjoy the wedding and that your sisters will behave while you are all together for this celebration. emoticon Hope Ben enjoys his aircon when he needs it.

Everyone Else, do hope all is going well in your parts of the world.

Me, hanging in there. Got another closet and some of those Ziploc big bags done and now have 2 more bags to give to Goodwill (charity).

G'day all.
Cathy my exercise has been off too. Trying to get back onto track since my fall. Glad your curriculum is coming together. You are awesome.
Vicky in no time the kids will be back and you will be back into the same routine. Take time to have fun with friends. Especially those who are very supportive. You need them at the moment.
Dee I am still decluttering over here. Keeps me warm on those cold days.
Georgia I hope you are keeping warm over there. We are close to 0C on some nights. Brrrr.
Just got Bens aircon in. Won't need it for a while but at least it is in. Now to tell him he has to move rooms because they couldn't fit it in his room. At least we have time to sort out his stuff and move him. He is not going to be happy but at least he will be cooler in his new room.
Been struggling to lose this last 500g. Think I am stressing about the wedding on the weekend and seeing my sisters again. Need to stop worrying. Not good for weight loss.

Tina so glad Chris was ok with it al. Hopefully the certificate won't take long. Gov't bureaucracy ughhhh!!!!

Vicki good time to catch up with friends and visit them. Won't be long and the kids will be back. Stay strong.

Cathy your new curriculum sounds wonderful and I am sure you will make it ever so exciting for them.

Dee it is a wonderful feeling when you clear things out. They say decluttering is a good thing for the soul. Keep it up. Less to take with you. Any decision from your father yet?

I am glad it is Wednesday - half way through the week.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Hi Everyone, hope you are having a nice day.

Vicky, glad you are getting some "me time" in while the kids are at camp.

Tina, ouch on waiting for the place to open and then not being able to get what you needed. Glad Chris took things in stride. My ds dislikes having to wait so we usually have him bring a book or one of those hand-held games.

Georgia, hope your week is going well.

Cathy, the curriculum you are putting together sounds wonderful. Love the idea of geography and also learning through art. Timelines are a good way to learn also. I hear ya on dropping the exercise ball.....I need to get back to it as well.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. Dh and I spent about 2 hours going through our closet trying things on and figuring out what to keep and what to give away. Ended up with 4 kitchen size trash bags filled with clothes and I know there will be more of those when we hit the kids closets. Now you can actually step into our closet without hitting your toes on anything....LOL!

Dh and ds took four bags of trash plus a non-working shredder to the dumpster and then took the bags of clothes to the Goodwill nearby. So also have all that stuff out of the apartment. YEAH!

Hugs to all!

Tina, wow! I hope you can get Chris' birth certificate soon and without all the hassle! What a pain. I am so glad he handled it well.

Dee, hope all the Dr. appts. for your dad go well. Has he made a decision as to what he will do for the move? It's a challenging time, but I know you will all make the right decision and things just have a way of working out!

Georgia, hope you have a wonderful day. One day closer to a day off! YAY!

Vicky, hope you have an amazing day!

Becky, Amanda, Amy, Laura, Ari and all the other lovely faces I haven't mentioned, hope you have a great day!

It's finally a little cooler today, but still high humidity.

Working hard on putting together lesson plans for some of the wonderful books I will be using as curriculum this year. It's a long process, but so worth it! One book is called Operation World which is a kind of social studies/geography book on all countries in the world with a prayer twist. The book tells you how you can pray for each nation! So we will wrap that into our learning about the world and where things are and how others live. This will be about a 3 year study but I think it will be a much better way to help the kids wrap their brains around these subjects. The kids love to pray for people! To that I will be doing Geography from a Timeline standpoint as well. I also found a wonderful book about Geography through Art which shows art from different cultures. Fun!!

Anyway, I am trying to do summer with the kids, keep the house straightened and get school ready. Somewhere along the way though I've been off with the exercise. Too busy! No excuse and I need to get back to it. After the horrible garage sale and the high heat and humidity it wiped me out. I know I will get there...one step at a time!

Hope all of you have a very happy healthy day!

Hugs, Cathy

You are all so awesome.
Took Chris to get his birth certificate today. They open up now later on a Tuesday. Waited in the cold until almost ten past nine where they should have opened at nine. Told me that their machine is down so they cannot give certificates. Seriously. Will get them online and then we can hopefully go. He was so good about it. Took it in his stride. Things don't seem to bother him. Wish I had some of his calmness.

Georgia and Cathy, do hope all is well.

Everyone Else, how ya all doing?

me, hanging in there. Took my dad this morning to the first of 3 different doc appointments this week. Got there just as a downpour began....rained for about an hour and when we left it was still raining and the roadways had spots that were totally covered with water...due to poor drainage. Ended up stopping for breakfast since he hadn't eaten and when we were done the rain had stopped...thank goodness...at least it stopped til we got home...LOL!

Looking forward to going green to celebrate, Tina! Way to go!

Hugs to all! Wishing you a great week.

Caddy had some rough moments this past week - first being snappy and contrary, then crying, asking for "huggles" (hugs and cuddles), etc. I wish I could make life easier for him. Not only is he an Aspie, he is 14 and worried about starting high school and all that goes with it. He has never handled transitions well (no surprise to all of you, I'm sure). Luckily, he works through these moods much more quickly than he used to - he just had not had any of them in a while, but this past week - ugh. I will call his therapist this morning to schedule his monthly meeting.

G'day all.
You are all amazing and I knew that when I was sad you would all lift me up. Girls are feeling better. DH a little off but still went to work.
If you see a post from me soon asking you to go green it means I have hit my next goal. I am 500 grams from 50kg weight loss. Not showing on here because my weight started at .4 and it only shows full kilo loss. But you will hear me roar and if you can wear green for me that day I would be so happy.
Green is my favourite colour if you didn't know. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Becky, I know this is a very busy time for you. Hope all goes well and you are able to get everything done that you want to. If you don't, no worries, you know you tried your best!

Vicky, hope you really enjoy some down time and time alone! It can be really hard at first to know what to do, but it is really important to have time just for you.

Dee, hope the plans for moving and the moving company search is going okay. I know it will all work out! Hope you have a very good day...indoors!

Tina, so sorry your family can be so awful! You are such a wonderful sweet person and do so well with your kiddos. Here's hoping one day your sisters wake up and realize what they are doing!

Georgia, hope you are having a great day!

To everyone else, enjoy your day. Find some time just for you, so you can feel recharged, refreshed!

Kelsa and I will be playing Pony-opoly in a moment and then I will be doing more school preparations. It is hot here again and very buggy, so no outside time. I have plenty to keep me busy anyway!

Hugs to all, Cathy

Hi Everyone, Do hope you have a nice day.

Vicky, so glad you are taking some time out for yourself while the kids are at camp.

Becky, hope things are coming along with all you have to do.

Tina, so sorry your sister is being a B**ch. Do hope both your girls feel better soon and that you didn't catch it from them. HUGS!

Georgia, love the "some people are part of your life to learn something".

Cathy, Laura, Amy, Amanda, Ari, Jelly, Jennifer, and Anyone Else I may have missed, do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there...another day with high temps and possible t-storms. Otherwise nothing new to report....

Tina I so understand you . Family sucks sometimes. Wish you could really just tell them how it really is but we don't. Why because we still hope there is nice bone in there somewhere.

Give your girls a hug from me.

I was told yesterday that some people are part of your life for a short time to learn something from you and others for a longer time for the same reason.

Karma - your sister will get what is coming to her - maybe even from the in law she is inheriting.

Hold you head up high and know you have done the best you can. We do!!!

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

G'day all.
Vicky glad you are having me time. You need it.
Georgia I hope you find some me time as well. You are always so busy.
Dee hope you find some breezes somewhere where it is not so hot.
Becky hope you have an amazing day.
Off to work today. Would have been mums 81st birthday yesterday so not an easy day. Had to go after work to see two of my older kids, both who were sick. They couldn't go to my nieces kitchen tea as they both had been up all night vomiting from some gastro so my sister sends a nasty email to both of them basically saying that they always make up excuses not to go to things and that she isn't sure if she wants to uninvited them to the wedding. Made both of them cry. My sisters causing stress a few months ago contributed to my heart attack. Now she upsets my girls when they are both sick. Next time they said they are going to go even though there is two tiny babies there. I am sure they would have been invited in to the house looking like they did. Asking for prayers for peace over them and also that they haven't given it to me.
Hugs tina

Catching up on bookwork this morning then run down to mums for an errand and then the running continues with errands for other people all day.

Hello all.

Got up this morning and did a workout that I had scheduled, this new workout plan Im trying. Then I went to the Y for Zumba, and I met my Mom there. We went in the pool, sauna, and hot tub after. THen we went out to lunch. Now I'm just doing a few little things around the house and might go out later with the hubby but not just him and I we will be with some good friends. Then the rest of the week I'm gonna keep open for ME!

Hi Everyone, hope you have a nice day.

Vicky, enjoy the time away from the kids and do somethings just for you that you aren't able to do with all the hustle and bustle of taking care of everyone else. HUGS!

Cathy, do hope all is well.

Georgia, glad you had a nice trip and a lovely visit with friends.

Tina, how are things at work? Are the kids ready to return to school?

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there... Going to be another hot day with storms today.

Vicki enjoy your time alone. Then you can appreciate them when they get back.

Cathy have a good day.

Tina we had lovely day. Cold and rainy. Nice catchup with an elderly couple.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

G'day all.
Dee prayers that dad has made a decision and that you are all at peace with it.
Vicky take time for yourself to think and plan what you are going to do in relation to your husband and your kids. Without anyone around I find is the best time to think. Go shopping just for you, have dinner with a friend. But mainly just relax. Sleep in if you can. I know you will miss them but know they are fine and having fun.
Georgia hope you get some fine spots on your drive.
Back to work this morning. Then tomorrow and then a week off now the kids are back. Back to school next week.
hugs, tina

Amanda,

OMG!!!!!! I am so sorry for what you are going through right now! Thats terrible. Hugs to your friend.

Well the kids are off to camp. I dropped them off on Thur morning. I already miss them but I am sure they are having fun. I worry about Rianna, this is her first time, Bryan this is his 4th so I know he is happy!

Of course now here I am with all this free time to do whatever I want and I have no idea what to do with myself. Making myself some dinner right now and then I might take a ride or a walk somewhere. I just dont know what to do.

Hi Everyone, hope you have a nice day and enjoy the upcoming weekend.

Tina, so glad to read that you are feeling better. Also glad you got some much needed rest.

Becky, my ds is more into anime and manga than the comic books.

Amanda, do hope things have settled down for you. HUGS!

Amy, how are you doing?

Ari, hope the rest of your summer goes well.

Jelly, Jennifer, Laura, Cathy and Anyone Else I may have missed, hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. Temps in the mid-90's with rain off and on the last few days. My dad comes home tomorrow. All this moving stuff is stressing me out even more than I usually am.

G'day all.
Amanda you are always in my thoughts and prayers. You carry so much. Hugs heading over.
Ari good to hear from you. Hope you have an amazing summer. hugs.
Dee it is a good idea to question them. Sometimes it is just they are a smaller company with less overheads so they can charge more and are not in the business to make lots of money. Hope you find a good cheap one.
Becky my son loves sonic as well. Loves the dvds.
Georgia find some time to relax. We all need that.
Just chillin' this morning before I go and pick up the kids. Feeling better. Slept almost 12 hours last night. Not usually something I would do but obviously needed it.
hugs and prayers to all, tina
