PENNY, YOUR FRIEND IS THE ONE BEING SELFISH---WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU WANT TO GO ANY PLACE WITH A SMOKER, EVEN WITH A SIDE WINDOW, YOU GET 2ND HAND SMOKE---WORSE FOR YOU THAN FOR HER---SO IN MY OPINION, YOU MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE.
NANCY, HOW WAS DINNER? REAGANN JUST LEFT---SO NICE TO NOT HAVE CHILDREN'S TV SHOWS ON---LOL
PERT, GOOD NEWS
DON'T FORGET TO LOOK FOR NEW THREADS FOR THE COMING YEAR ON ALL YOUR TEAMS---AND IF YOU DON'T WANT TO PARTICIPATE ON THEM ANY MORE, BE COURTEOUS TO YOUR LEADERS AND SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TEAM START UP PAGE AND LEAVE THE TEAM---IT MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER FOR THE LEADERS IF MORE PEOPLE WOULD DO THAT. LOOK AT OUR NUMBERS AND THEN LOOK AT THE NUMBER WHO ACTUALLY PARTICIPATE----WHAT A DIFFERENCE!

IT'S BEEN SNOWING ALL DAY. CLOSE TO 4 INCHES. BILL WENT OUT EARLY & GOT THE GROCERIES & I DID THE WASH. IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL BUT I'VE NOT GONE OUT NOR DO I PLAN ON IT. HOPE ALL THAT PARTY TONIGHT KEEP SAF

WILSON, HAVE YOU EVER TRIED CHAMOMILE TEA? IT REALLY HELPS MY STOMACH WHEN I'M HAVING PROBLEMS WITH IT.

PERT, I'M GLAD THAT YOU HAVE FRIENDS THERE FOR YOU WHEN YOU NEED HELP.

I MADE A "FRIEND" MAD AT ME, LAST WEEK, WHEN I REFUSED TO GO INTO THE CITY WITH HER. SHE ASKED WHAT I WAS GOING TO BE DOING & I TOLD HER THAT I WAS STAYING IN THE HOSE & NOT DOING ANYTHING. SHE INSISTED THAT I GO WITH HER BECAUSE I WASN'T DOING ANYTHING IMPORTANT ANYWAY. TOLD HER I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO GO ANY WHERE. SO NOW SHE'S NOT TALKING TO ME. SHE HAS OTHER PEOPLE THAT SHE GOES PLACES WITH SO I DON'T SEE WHAT THE BIG DEAL IS. BESIDES SHE INSISTS ON SMOKING (SHE PUTS HER SIDE WINDOW DOWN) AND I DON'T SMOKE. SOMETIMES I REALLY HAVE A HARD TIME KEEPING MY MOUTH SHUT WHEN I'M BEING PUSHED TO DO SOMETHING I JUST DON'T WANT TO DO. BILL SAYS SHE'LL COOL OFF BUT, AT THIS POINT, I JUST DON'T CARE. YEAH, I KNOW - I'M JUST BEING SELFISH!

HOPE EVERYONE ELSE TAKE CARE. DON'T OVER DO

JOY, IT IS FOR THE BEST FOR THE REST OF THE KIDS---THEY KNOW THEY HAVE TRIED AND SOME KIDS ARE JUST BEYOND A PERSON'S REACH---ARE THEY LETTING THEM KEEP THE OTHER SIBLINGS? AND JUST TOO DANGEROUS FOR THE OTHER KIDS, TOO.
KIM, HOPE THEY FIGURE IT OUT---AND YES, WE CANNOT MAKE THEIR DECISIONS FOR THEM---HARD AS IT IS---BUT SHE NEEDS TO HAVE AN INCOME TO MOVE OUT ANYWHERE. HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON. LOL TO BF NOT LIKING YOU GETTING YOUR VOICE BACK.
WILSON, WELL, YOU MAKE HIM CLEAN UP HIS OWN MESS LIKE HE MADE YOU DO! DUMB NUT! AND WOOHOO ON LOSING WEIGHT---NOT THE EASY WAY TO LOSE IT BUT ANY LOSS IS GOOD IN MY BOOKS.
HAVE REAGANN TODAY ---WE HAVE BEEN BUSY BEES THIS MORNING---NEED TO FIX HER LUNCH.
REMEMBER THAT WE START A NEW CHAT TOMORROW--WILL PROBABLY START IT TONIGHT OR FIRST THING TOMORROW! HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

KIM I MISSED YOUR POST. GLAD THEY ARE LEAST GETTING SOME ANSWERS FOR YOUR MOM. AND FOR THE DAUGHTER, WE CAN'T MAKE THEIR CHOICES FOR THEM EVEN THOUGH WE WOULD LIKE TO. JUST KEEP HER INFORMED THAT YOU CARE AND SHE IS WELCOME WITH YOU UNTIL SHE GETS ON HER FEET. TAKE CARE AND I HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER TOO.

LECATES MINE IS MARBLE TOO. AND THEY DO BREAK! I BROKE THE LAST ONE IN THE GARAGE. GO FIGURE HUH?

JOY I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF HE GETS IT. HE KEPT TAKING MY WATER GLASS INSTEAD OF GETTING HIS OWN. I KEPT TELLING HIM NOT TO. I FINALLY ASKED HIM IF HE WANTED TO SHARE MY GARBAGE CAN/BARF BUCKET TOO. LOL

I AM WATCHING A PROGRAM ON HOARDERS. WOW.. SOME OF THOSE ROOMS LOOK LIKE MY MIDDLE BEDROOM THANKS TO BF.

I FINALLY CHANGED MY TICKER. I HAD GAINED A FEW POUNDS AND JUST NEVER GOT AROUND TO FIXING IT THINKING I WOULD LOSE THEM. WELL THANKS TO THE FLU I LOST 8 POUNDS. AND THAT IS AFTER DRINKING ABOUT A GALLON OF WATER YESTERDAY.

BEST GET TO MY HOUSE WORK. NOBODY ELSE IS GOING TO DO IT FOR ME. IT IS NICE HAVING A FEW DAYS OFF FROM MY PARENTS. BUT WHEN I GO BACK ON IT IS THE START OF HER APPT LIST. 2 TO 4 PER WEEK. YIKES.

It's cloudy & cool. Today will be the warmest all week at 29*, then it'll get frigid. Have a little over a foot of snow on the ground.

Went to the ER Saturday evening. Apparently, many people were having respitory distress. Anyway, was given an antibiotic script & told to keep doing what I was. So, luckily I didn't get any needles. So, I've been camped out on the couch recliner. As, laying down is impossible. My voice is finally coming back, to bf's chagrin, lol.

Mom, had another scope, higher up in the colon, they took biopsies. Looking to see if she has irritable bowl syndrome. If she didn't before, she does now, lol. She just got visited by yet another doc. This one wants to stick her on steroids as he thinkd other meds have had penty of time to work & haven't if she's still having bowel issues w/ blood.

As to my dd, she feels that moving there was a mistake & that she doen't want to make any more mistakes. That she is going t get her license, car & then move in w/ ex's brother. (Yup, sooo not happy about that). Not as s couple, just to be "independant". Which ought to be interesting since she's laid off.

Wilson, glad you are doing better. But, pace yourself.

Joy, glad you had a good visit w/ most of the family.

Lecates, bet you're getting really excited for the wedding.

Pert, glad Mrs. T is home.


That's all for now. Have a happy new year!

YEP. SO DIFFICULT, THEY HAVE DECIDED OF AFTER MORE THAN 2 YEARS OF TRYING TO TEACH HIM ANYTHING, AND GIVE HIM A GOOD HOME, AND HIM JUST IGNORING EVERYTHING THEY TRY TO TEACH HIM, HE'S GOING BACK INTO THE SYSTEM, AND OUT OF THEIR HOUSE. I HATE TO SEE ANY KID GO THRU THAT, BUT I KNOW THOUSANDS OF THEM DO, SADLY, BUT HE JUST WANTS EVERYTHING HIS WAY AND NOW, AND TO HECK WITH EVERYONE ELSE IN THE FAMILY. HE'S NOT TAKING HIS MEDS, AND IS HIDING THEM WHERE THE 4 LITTLE KIDS CAN FIND THEM NOW, AND THAT WAS THE LAST STRAW. SO THEY HOPE WITHIN A WEEK OR SO, ANOTHER HOME HAS BEEN FOUND FOR HIM. HE KNOWS HE'S LEAVING, SO YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW HIS BEHAVIOR IS NOW, SO HE WASN'T ALLOWED TO COME TO BEGIN WITH. NOT QUITE FAIR TO THE OTHER ONE THAT HAD TO GO HOME BUT THERE WAS JUST NO ROOM.....

GLAD THE KIDS FOUND AN APARTMENT, AND IF IT'S JUST FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS, BACK AND FORTH, IT'LL WORK. JUST BE A LACK OF PRIVACY FOR EVERYONE. WE HAD CARRA AND KAITY, AND JAY, HEATHER AND ZACH, WITH US FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS....AND WE STILL ALL SPEAK..LOL emoticon emoticon

JOY, THE BANK APPROVED THEM FOR CERTAIN AMOUNT AND THEN SAID HE COULD NOT AFFORD THE PLACES---DUH!---BUT HE QUALIFIED FOR A SPECIAL PROGRAM AND NEEDED A HOUSE IN THE COUNTRY---BUT COULD NOT FIND ONE IN HIS PRICE RANGE. SO THEY WENT AND LOOKED AT A COUPLE OF APARTMENTS---FOUND ONE THEY LIKED AND COULD AFFORD BUT NOT AVAILABLE TIL END OF MARCH---SO THEY WILL LIVE HERE TIL THEN--OR AT LEAST PART TIME---HER GRANDMOTHER SAID THEY COULD STAY THERE, TOO---SO THEY ARE THINKING OF GOING BACK AND FORTH TO NOT GET ON ANYONE'S NERVES---BUT AT LEAST ONE WEEK HER GRANDMOTHER WILL BE GONE AND TAYLAR AND MICHAEL WILL BE DOG SITTING---SO THEY WILL HAVE SOME PRIVACY THAT WEEK. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS---MIGHT CHECK INTO USING TIME SHARE IN OC IF IT IS AVAILABLE AT LEAST PART OF THE TIME---BUT MICHAEL IS GOING TO BE SUPER BUSY WHEN THEY GET BACK---WHICH IS GOOD FOR THE MONEY PART. GLAD YOU ENJOYED THE GRANDKIDS---SORRY THE SON AND OTHER 2 COULD NOT GET UP THERE---BUT ISN'T THE ONE NOT THERE A DIFFICULT ONE? SO MAYBE FOR THE BETTER.

WILSON, ARE YOU NUTS?? IF HE CAN BLOW THAT KIND OF MONEY, LET HIM BUY HIS OWN SWEETS, OR AT LEAST KICK IN FOR GROCERIES!!! HOPE YOU ARE FEELING LOTS BETTER (AND THAT THE BF GETS IT).... CONGRATS ON THE UP-COMING WEDDINGS. OUR KIDS GOT MARRIED IN THE FALL TOO, ONE IN SEPT. AND ONE IN OCTOBER. BOTH OF THEM HAD BEAUTIFUL DAYS... AND GRANDKIDS ARE WONDERFUL... OUR FIRST WAS A SURPRISE, BUT OH SO WORTH IT, AND THE REST OF THE GANG, WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY. YOUR DAY WILL COME....

HOUSE IS QUIET TONIGHT, WITH EVERYONE GONE. KIDS WERE SO EXCITED TO COME AND CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. DS WASN'T HERE WITH 2 OF THE KIDS, AS THEY HAD CAR TROUBLE ON TOP OF THE DISASTER AT THE HOUSE, SO IT SEEMED STRANGE, BUT THE OTHER 8 KIDS KEPT IT LIVELY. HATED TO SEE THEM LEAVE TODAY, BUT THEY WANTED TO GET HOME AND SEE DAD, AND HAVE TO GET READY FOR SCHOOL.

LECATES, WEDDING IS GETTING CLOSER! DID THE KIDS DECIDE AGAINST THE HOUSE THAT MICHAEL WANTED? MAKE TAYLAR SIT DOWN AND WATCH A COUPLE OF THOSE TV SHOWS WHERE THEY FLIP A HOUSE, AND MAYBE THEN SHE CAN BEGIN TO IMAGINE THAT HOUSE FIXED UP TO THEIR TASTE.

KIM, I WAS WONDERING WHY YOUR DD WAS STAYING THERE.. IS SHE HOPING IF SHE'S THERE THAT THE BF WILL COME BACK TO HER? WISH SHE'D WISE UP AND COME TO YOU, OR AT LEAST GET OUT OF THERE. GLAD TO HEAR MOM IS FEELING A LITTLE BETTER, AND HOW SAD ABOUT HER BIRD. NOW YOU GET TO FEELING BETTER....

ROSES, FOR ME TO DO ANYTHING IN THE YARD, DH WOULD HAVE TO PLOW ABOUT 2 FEET OF SNOW AWAY, THEN HOPEFULLY THE GROUND ISN'T FROZEN, AND I COULD DIG A HOLE!

WE'VE HAD 9 DEER IN THE YARD THE LAST FEW NIGHTS. SUCH FUN WATCHING THEM EAT MY SHRUBS AND PLANTS......NOT! BUT THEY NEED TO EAT TOO. I WANT TO GO TO THE MILL AND GET SOME CORN TO PUT OUT FOR THEM.

PERT, GOOD NEWS ABOUT MS. T. KNOW YOU FEEL BETTER HAVING HER HOME! DOES PEYTON WORK? DON'T REMEMBER IF YOU EVER SAID. THE LORD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS, SO KEEP THE FAITH, AND REMEMBER TO PASS ON THAT HELPING HAND WHEN YOU'RE IN A SITUATION WHERE YOU CAN. CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR SOME OF YOUR SONGS...

LOL! AFTER THE KIDS BEING HERE FOR 48 HRS., DH WENT TO THE KITCHEN TO GET SOME COOKIES......LOL. I THINK THEY EVEN LICKED UP THE CRUMBS!

HAD A NOTE FROM PEARL. SHE WAS IT WAS 80* FOR CHRISTMAS, AND THEY WENT TO THE BEACH, SWIMMING....BRAT....

HOW ARE THE NEW BOOTS WORKING OUT NANCY? KEEPING YOU UPRIGHT?? MAYBE KIRBY NEEDS A PAIR....OR MAKE THAT, 2 PAIR.....

I'M TIRED, AND I'M THIRSTY, AND I'M COLD, SO GUESS I'LL GO OUT IN THE OTHER ROOM WHERE MY ICED TEA IS SETTING, FIND MY BLANKET AND FINISH READING THE PAPER. AND I THINK AN EARLY BEDTIME IS IN LINE..... TALK TO Y'ALL TOMORROW.

PERT GLAD TO HEAR MS T IS GOING TO BE OKAY. SOUNDS LIKE THE LORD MIGHT HAVE A HAND IN HELPING YOU OUT. MAYBE SOMETHING ELSE WILL COME ALONG AND HELP YOU TO GET YOUR SONGS PUBLISHED! IF YOU COULD SELL A SONG TO A BIG TIME ARTIST YOUR WORRIES OVER VET BILLS WOULD BE DONE WITH.

I AM FEELING SOOOO MUCH BETTER TODAY. I KNOW THAT MY TOILET IS CLEAN AS IT POSSIBLY COULD BE EVEN THOUGH MY FACE HAS NOT BEEN IN IT AT ALL TODAY!

I ALSO GOT A VIDEO THROUGH E-MAIL OF MY OLDEST SON PROPOSING TO HIS GAL! I HEARD HIM ASK AND YOU CAN'T HEAR HER ANSWER BUT THE REACTION SAID IT ALL. I GUESS IT WAS A COUPLE OF DAYS AFTER CHRISTMAS BECAUSE HER RING WAS NOT READY YET. SHE CRIED WHEN SHE DID NOT GET ONE UNDER THE TREE. HE FELT BAD BUT HE KEPT QUIET AND WAITED FOR THE RING TO BE DONE AT THE JEWELERS. I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO DO THIS BECAUSE HER RING WAS SO EXPENSIVE AND I HAD TOLD HIM WHENEVER HE WANTED THAT I HAD BEEN SAVING MY DIAMONDS FOR HIM. HE ASKED TO SEE THEM AND THEN SAID "WOW, MOM YOU HAVE KEPT THESE FOR 26 YEARS? ALL THE HARD TIMES YOU WENT THROUGH WHEN YOU COULD HAVE SOLD THEM? WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?" I TOLD HIM THAT WHEN I LEFT THEIR DAD THAT I HAD MY MIND SET THAT I WAS GOING TO PASS THEM ON TO MY BOYS. MY YOUNGEST GOT HIS LAST SUMMER AND THEY HAD A BEAUTIFUL RING MADE OUT OF THE DIAMONDS. MY OLDER SON TOOK HIS IN TO TRADE OFF ON THE COST OF HIS GALS. NO DATES YET FROM EITHER ONE BUT THERE IS GOING TO BE TWO WEDDINGS SOMETIME IN 2013! I GUESS THERE IS NO MORE DRAGGING MY FEET TO LOSE THIS WEIGHT! I DON'T WANT TO SOUND LIKE I AM IN A RUSH OR ANYTHING BUT BY THE TIME THEIR VOWS ARE SAID AND DONE , THE FIRST THING OUT OF MY MOUTH WILL BE "WHEN CAN I EXPECT GRANDBABIES???!!" AM I BAD OR WHAT? COME ON I WILL BE 53 COME APRIL. MY SISTERS OLDEST GRANDSON IS 14. I WANT MY GRANDKIDS TO REMEMBER ME BY SOMETHING OTHER THAN THAT OLD BAG THAT CHASED US WITH HER WALKER TO GIVE US WHISKER RUBS. LOL SORRY THAT WAS JUST ME REMEMBERING MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER.

IT IS ONLY 1 P.M. AND I HAVE ALREADY HAD 4 SIGS TODAY. BUT I AM OKAY WITH THAT. MY QUIT DATE ISN'T UNTIL THE 1ST. I WOULD USUALLY HAVE HAD TWICE THAT MANY BY NOW. IN ORDER TO DO THIS I HAVE TO GIVE UP COFFEE AND BEER!
I THINK ON NEW YEARS EVE I WILL HAVE HAVE SEVERAL BEERS AND EVERY SIG I SMOKE WILL GO INTO A BOTTLE OF WATER WITH A TIGHT LID. THEN WHENEVER I CRAVE A SMOKE I WILL UNCAP IT AND SMELL THE STENCH IN THE BOTTLE. THAT SHOULD TAKE AWAY THE CRAVING.

I AM ONCE AGAIN GOING TO TRY AND POST A PICTURE. WISH ME LUCK!

WILSON, I HOPE YOU ARE NOT GOING TO YOUR PARENTS UNTIL THIS FLU IS ENTIRELY OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM---THEY DO NOT NEED TO CATCH IT.
ALL OUR WALMARTS AROUND HERE A DIFFERENT IN SOME WAY---THINK BECAUSE OF BUILDING SHAPES.
PERT, GLAD SHE IS HOME---WHOA ON THAT VET BILL---BUT NICE THAT YOU ARE BEING LOOKED AFTER.
VERY WINDY HERE SO I AM HIBERNATING AGAIN---NEED TO FIGURE OUT SOMETHING TO DO BESIDES SIT AT THIS DESK.
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

GOOD MORNING MY DEAR FRIENDS... MY MIRACLE DOG MS T IS HOME... HER EYE IS BULGED OUT OF THE SOCKET BUT I'M COUNTING ON IT TO HEAL SO IT DOESNT HAVE TO BE REMOVED... SHE STILL CANT BLINK... MY NEIGHBOR LOANED ME A BIG KENNEL FOR HER TO STAY IN... SHE CANT RISK BUMPING THAT EYE OR ROUGH HOUSING WITH THE OTHER DOGS... I HAVE HER IN MY OFFICE SO SHE CANT SEE OR HEAR HER PUPS... LACEY'S ARE IN HERE WHICH IS A BIT FRUSTRATING FOR HER BUT MAYBE AFTER HER APPOINTMENT NEXT FRIDAY MORNIN SHE CAN RETURN TO HER BABIES... SURE WOULD BE NICE TO SLEEP THRU THE NIGHT FOR A CHANGE... IN THE MEANTIME... WE PLAY MOMMA... AND EVEN THO A BIT WEARY AROUND THE EDGES... THERES A LOT OF JOY IN THAT JOB.... ESPECIALLY NOW THAT I HAVE MY REGULAR FORMULA HERE AND THE DIARREAH (HOWEVER THAT'S SPELLED) THE PUPS HAD HAS STOPPED... I'M NOT SO STRESSED NOW... I REALLY WAS THO... THAT'S NOT A GOOD THING IN LITTLE PUPS... I'M REALLY GONNA HAVE TO DO SOMETHING EXTRA SPECIAL NICE FOR MY NEIGHBOR MS CAROL WHEN THIS IS OVER FOR HELPIN US OUT LIKE SHE HAS...

ONE OF PEYTON'S FRIENDS MET ME AT THE VET'S OFFICE YESTERDAY AND LOANED US 200 BUCKS SO WE COULD GET THRU TIL THE 9TH... IT AMAZES ME HOW WE'VE BEEN TAKEN CARE OF THE PAST LITTLE BIT... LIKE TALKIN TO THE VET YESTERDAY... THE BILL IS OVER 1000 BUCKS... I TOLD HIM WE HAD 22 PUPS TO BE SOLD IN FEBRUARY AND COULD PAY HIM THEN AND HE SAID THAT WOULD BE FINE... I HAVE SOOOOOOO MUCH TO BE GRATEFUL FOR... AND GUESS WHAT... THE GUY AT THE SHOP WAS WORKING... HE JUST DIDNT RESPOND TO MY MESSAGES... HAVE TO WAIT TIL WEDNESDAY TO GET VAN IN... HE DIDNT SOUND TOO THRILLED IT WAS COMING BACK AND SAID IT'S PROBABLY THE PUMP WHICH IS WHAT I FIGURED... WHAT'S A LITTLE MORE MONEY.... LOL... BUT TODAY I'M SMILIN... MS T IS HOME!!!!! I COULDNT ASK FOR MUCH MORE THAN THAT!!!!!

ROSE... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR MOM...

WILSON... SURE HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON... I KNOW HOW YOU HATE TO KEEP STILL AND REST.... MAYBE IT WAS YOUR BODY'S WAY OF SAYIN IT WAS TIME TO REST.... JUST A THOUGHT (AND HOPE YOU REALIZE I'M GIVING YOU A HARD TIME CAUSE I LIKE YOU SOO MUCH)... SURE HOPE YOU CAN PUT DOWN THE CIGS... YOUR LUNGS WILL APPRECIATE THE HECK OUT OF IT!!!

NANCY... I AGREE... WINTER DRIVING IS NO FUN... ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S WEATHERING OUT...

NANCY THERE IS NO ROOM IN THE GARAGE! LOL

LECATES THE WALMARTS HERE ARE ALL THE SAME. CLOQUET, HERMANTOWN, AND SUPERIOR. TOO BAD ABOUT NOT HAVING AN ELECTRIC CART OR EVEN A WHEELCHAIR.

WELL I THOUGHT I WAS OVER THIS FLU-BUG TODAY. GOT OUT OF THE SHOWER AND FELT PRETTY GOOD. DID MY DISHES, THREW IN A LOAD OF LAUNDRY, AND THREW UP! THEN I MADE OUT A GROCERY LIST AND WENT TO THE STORE ANYWAY. I MADE IT BACK TO HOUSE BEFORE HURLING AGAIN. THEN I MADE CHICKEN, POTATOES , GRAVY AND COLESLAW FOR DINNER AND HURLED AGAIN WHILE THE BF WAS FILLING HIS FACE. NOW I AM DRINKING BLACK TEA. I KNOW I AM DEHYDRATED BUT EVERY TIME I DRINK A GLASS OF WATER IT COMES BACK UP. SO FAR THE TEA IS STAYING PUT. I TALKED TO MY SISTER THAT ALSO HAD THIS BUG AND SHE SAID SHE NEVER ATE OR DRANK A THING IN 3 DAYS. SHE WAS TOO BUSY SLEEPING IT AWAY. SO MAYBE TOMORROW I WILL BE ALL BETTER. ONLY 3 SIGS IN 2 DAYS. WE WILL SEE HOW IT GOES WHEN I FEEL BETTER!

WILSON, IT WAS SET UP DIFFERENT THAN THE 2 NEAR ME---AND I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO EXPLORE MORE---BUT MOM'S FOOT WAS BOTHERING HER AND THEY DID NOT HAVE ANY WORKING CARTS FOR HER.
KIM, SURE HOPE THE MEDS ARE KICKING IN TODAY---ENJOY WATCHING THE SNOW BUT STAY INSIDE NICE AND WARM. RAIN HERE AGAIN! BUT BETTER THAN SNOW!

SOMEONE FORGOT TO TURN OFF THE SNOW MACHINE HERE! AT LEAST IT'S THE LARGE, FLUFFY STUFF THAT LOOKS PRETTY. THOUGH BF SAID, PEOPLE WERE DRIVING LIKE IDIOTS. IT AMAZES ME THAT PEOPLE SEEM TO "FORGET" WHAT DRIVING IN SNOW IS LIKE, WHEN IT HAPPENS EVERY YEAR. *SHAKES MY HEAD*

MOM IS DOING SOMEWHAT BETTER. I REALLY RAISED HER SPIRITS WITH A SURPRISE BOUQUET OF ROSES SENT TO HER ROOM. THEY'RE TRYING A NEW MED FOR THE DIARRHEA. SHE'S NOT TO HAPPY ABOUT THE TEXTURE & TASTE, BUT I TOLD HER THAT IT'S ALL PERSPECTIVE... IT'S BETTER THAN THE ALTERNATIVE. LOL.

MY DAUGHTER IS NOT REAL HAPPY WITH ME RIGHT NOW. AS I JUST COULDN'T UNDERSTAND HER CHOICE IN STAYING AT A PLACE THAT MAKES HER MISERABLE, THAT SHE COMPLAINS ABOUT ALL THE TIME, WHEN SHE HAS ANOTHER CHOICE. I SAID I RESPECT IT, BUT DON'T UNDERSTAND IT. SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN HAPPY BETWEEN PARENTS & CHILDREN FROM TIME IN MEMORIUM.

I STOPPED TAKING THE COUGH SUPPRESSANT/EXPECTORANT LAST NIGHT. I'M LESS TIGHT, BUT AM STILL HAVING TROUBLE BREATHING & USING THE INHALER A LOT IN BETWEEN TREATMENTS. HAD THE CHILLS PRETTY BAD LAST NIGHT, BUT NO FEVER. SAT IN A HOT SHOWER FOR A WHILE. TRYING TO REST, BUT I'M JUST TIRED OF RESTING. FRUSTRATED WITH MY BODY.

I'M GRATEFUL FOR HAVING A COMFORTABLE HOME, PLENTY OF FOOD TO EAT, A JOB FOR THE BF, 3 COMFORTING CATS & GREAT SPARK FRIENDS.

MORNING ALL.


I AM FEELING SOMEWHAT BETTER TODAY. I KNOW THE SHOWER IS CALLING MY NAME. THE ONLY THING I MANAGED TO DO YESTERDAY WAS MOP THE BATHROOM FLOOR. I WAS ABLE TO KEEP DOWN HALF A GRILLED CHEESE AND A CUP OF TOMATO SOUP LAST NIGHT. BEEN SIPPING WATER BUT THINK I AM STILL DEHYDRATED.

NANCY YOU ARE TOO FUNNY! BUT THERE IS NOT ROOM IN THE GARAGE FOR MY SEWING MACHINE. WE GOT LIKE 3 INCHES OF THAT CRAP AND STILL SNOWING.

LECATES THAT WEDDING IS REALLY GETTING CLOSE. BE HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT. WAS THE NEW WALMART JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHERS? LOL GLAD YOU GOT TO GO ANYWAY.

PERT GOOD NEWS ABOUT MS T. I WAS WONDERING IF SHE WOULD BE ABLE TO NURSE WITH ALL THE MEDS. THAT WOULD GIVE THE PUPS DIARRHEA BIG TIME.

BEST HIT THAT SHOWER AND HOPE IT TAKES AWAY ALL THE ACHES AND PAINS IN MY JOINTS. I HAVE A COUPLE DAYS WORTH OF DISHES TO CATCH UP ON AND NEED TO DO SOME LAUNDRY AND MAKE A GROCERY LIST.

MORNIN FRIENDS... HOPE ALL ARE WELL THIS MORNIN... GOT SOME GREAT NEWS... MS T MAY BE ABLE TO COME HOME TODAY... THE PROBLEM IS SHE CANT NURSE HER PUPS CAUSE OF THE HEAVY ANTIBIOTICS SHE IS ON... AND SINCE I DONT WANT MY DEAR GIRL TO BE TORMENTED WE MAY OPT TO LEAVE HER WHERE SHE IS TIL NEXT WEEK DEPENDING ON WHAT THE VET SAYS TODAY... SWELLING STILL SO BAD IN EYE SHE CANT BLINK AND NEEDS CONSTANT DROPS... SO I COULD TREAT HER MORE OFTEN AT HOME... REALLY GOTTA TALK TO VET...

THE OTHER GOOD NEWS... IN SPITE OF A 2000 CALORIE CHRISTMAS DINNER I'M STILL AT 192 WHICH IS JUST SHOCKING TO ME... USED TO A MEAL LIKE THAT WOULD BE AN AUTOMATIC 5 POUNDS... BUT I WEIGHED YESTERDAY.. DIDNT HAPPEN... COURSE I FOLLOWED IT WITH A 1300 CALORIE DAY WITH A WALK TO GET BACK ON TRACK... HAD ANOTHER DINNER OF PORK LOIN LAST NIGHT WITH THE ORIGINAL STUFF I'D PLANNED FOR DINNER... CARROTS AND PEAS... NO TATERS... THE CARROTS HAD HONEY AND LIME JUICE AND OF COURSE MY EVER PRESENT SOY SAUCE AND WORCESTERSHIRE AND MORTON'S SEASONING SALT AND A BIT OF BUTTER.. EVEN ADDED A BIT OF CINNAMON... QUITE TASTY IF YA ASK ME... NOT SURE ADDING HONEY IS A GOOD IDEA FOR ME SINCE IT DOES MAKE ME WANT TO EAT MORE OF ANYTHING THAT HAS IT IN IT... SO IT'S THE SUGAR DEMON AT WORK... BUT IT DOESNT SEEM AS HYPERACTIVE AS IT USED TO BE... MY BEST BET THO IS TO STICK TO THE NATURAL SUGARS IN FRUIT...

WROTE A SONG YESTERDAY THAT TOPS ANYTHING I'VE WRITTEN TO DATE... WILL HAVE TO THANK MS T FOR THAT... WELL THAT'S NOT WHERE THE SONG CAME FROM BUT IT WAS PART OF THE RELIEF OF KNOWING SHE WAS GONNA BE OK... AND STANDING ON FAITH THAT SHE WOULD BE... GONNA WRITE A LETTER TO DAD TODAY AND SEND IT TO HIM WHEN I FINISH HERE... I CALLED FOUR PEOPLE AND PLAYED IT FOR THEM BEFORE PLAYING IT FOR PEYTON... IT GAVE HIM CHILLS... WHEN I CAME IN HERE THIS MORNIN AND PLAYED BACK WHAT I'D PUT ON TAPE YESTERDAY ON PEYTON'S OLD MACHINE IT JUST WALKED RIGHT INTO MY HEART...
PEYTON IS STARTING TO REALIZE HOW MUCH I NEED THESE COPYRIGHTED AND OUT THERE... AND THAT'S SOMETHING...

WELL I GUESS I'VE GONE ON LONG ENUF ABOUT ME.... LOL

LECATES... GLAD YOU GOT TO GO DO THE WALLY WORLD THING WITH YOUR MOM LIKE YOU WANTED...

NANCY... 22 INCHES OF CRAP??? LOLOLOLOL HARD TO IMAGINE... LOL

WILSON... SO SORRY YOU'RE SICK HUN... GLAD YOU CALLED YOUR SISTER TO HELP!!! HOPE YOU'RE FEELIN MUCH BETTER TODAY!!!!!!!!!

KIM... GOT MY FIRST SEED CATALOG THE OTHER DAY BUT NO TIME FOR DAYDREAMING RIGHT NOW... SURE HOPE YOU GOT THE PREDNISONE DOSE PACK IN TIME TOO!!! HOSPITALS ARE NO FUN!!! SOOOO SORRY ABOUT YOUR MOM'S BIRD... HOPE SHE ISNT TOO BURDENED BY THAT.... YOU ARE BOTH REMEMBERED IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS... SENDIN LOTS OF WELL WISHES YOUR WAY!

LOVE YOU GUYS... HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY....

HELLO EVERYBODY. I AM STILL ALIVE! LAST NIGHT I WASN'T SO SURE I WANTED TO BE. LOL

I CALLED MY SISTER THIS MORNING TO GO TO THE FOLKS AND TAKE CARE OF THEM FOR ME. I SPENT THE ENTIRE NIGHT WITH MY HEAD IN EITHER THE TOILET OR THE GARBAGE CAN. IF ANYBODY WAS AROUND TO VIDEO THAT THEY COULD HAVE GOOD FOOTAGE FOR THE NEXT EXORCIST MOVIE. FEELING SOMEWHAT BETTER TODAY BUT NOT WELL ENOUGH TO GET IN THE SHOWER YET. I HAVE TO SANITIZE THAT WHOLE BATHROOM BEFORE ANYONE ELSE USES IT. YIKES!!!

LECATES MY NIECE DID GET AN ESTIMATE FROM A LICENSED TILE SETTER. SIX THOUSAND FOR LABOR PLUS SHE HAD TO BUY ALL MATERIALS! THAT IS WHY THEY DECIDED TO DO IT THEMSELVES. AND MY MOM SAW THERE WAS AN APPT ON THE BOARD YESTERDAY AND JUMPED IN THE SHOWER WITH NO AURGUMENTS. WE DID NOT TELL HER UNTIL SHE WAS DONE THAT IT WAS MY DADS' APPT AND NOT HERS.

PERT YOU HAVE A BIG JOB THERE WITH ALL THOSE PUPS. JUST DON'T FORGET TO TAKE CARE OF PERT TOO! AND LIKE LECATES SAID THE FOOD SHELVES ARE THERE TO HELP AND MOST HAVE AN OVERABUNDANCE OF PET FOOD. GREAT NEWS ABOUT MS T. HOPE SHE GETS WELL ENOUGH TO TAKE HER PUPS BACK.

NANCY THAT WAS QUITE A STORM. YOU BE CAREFUL AND REMEMBER THOSE SNOWPLOWS CANNOT SEE A WHOLE LOT WITH ALL THE SNOW BLOWING OFF THE
BLADE OF THEIR PLOW.

JOY I WOULD MUCH RATHER DO BUTTONS THAN ZIPPERS! MY MOM SENT ME A JACKET SHE WANTED A NEW ZIPPER IN. THAT WAS 3 YEARS AGO. IT IS STILL SITTING HERE WAITING. LOL

KIM MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AND YOUR MOM. HOW IS YOUR DAUGHTER DOING?

ALL FROM ME RIGHT NOW AS I HAD 5 SODA CRACKERS AND HALF A GLASS OF WATER THAT IS JUST NOT MAKING MY STOMACH VERY HAPPY. emoticon

Great news Pert! I'm so glad she's doing better.

Nancy, we got about a foot here. No records broken & that's just fine with me. Though we have another small storm coming, bringing frigid temps.

Got my first seed catalog yesterday. All the day-dreaming for things I'd do if I had a whole yard to work with. But, I shall be grateful for my patio.

I'm fighting the chest cold/bronchitis tooth & nail. Got the 21 pack of prednisolone (steroid) to help open up my airways, as it is setting off my asthma. I think I might have gotten to it early enough to avoid ER/hospital visit *fingers crossed*

Mom had an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) yesterday, they only found an hiatal hernia. Not believed to be causing the present problem, but is affecting her acid reflux. That's all the medical news that I have at this time. Unfortunately, because of her stay in the hospital, her pet bird died. Not a great thing to lift her spirits. Continued support & prayers are appreciated & welcomed.

NANCY, WHOA, THAT IS A LOT OF SNOW IN ONE DAY---BET YOU ARE REALLY GLAD YOU ARE HAVING TO SHOVEL YOUR OLD DRIVEWAY/WALKWAY WITH THAT MUCH SNOW. STAY SAFE WHEN OUT WITH THE DOG.
JOY, ONLY A FOOT? TOO MUCH FOR ME! WHAT KIND OF TREE ARE YOU GETTING? HMMM, WONDER WHAT DH PLANS ON GETTING FOR HIS CARS THAT HE TOLD YOU TO GET IT? LOL
PERT, HANG IN THERE--AND PLEASE DON'T BE AFRAID OF GOING TO LOCAL FOOD BANK FOR SOME HELP---THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE THERE FOR---AND SOMETIMES THEY HAVE PET FOOD DONATED TO THEM, TOO.
TAKING MY MOM TO THE HOSPITAL FOR A PROCEDURE TODAY---SO WILL BE OUT AND ABOUT---WINDCHILL STILL NOT GOOD HERE BUT WILL FEEL GOOD TO GET OUT---I WOULD PREFER TO GO SHOPPING---LOL---SEE HOW SHE FEELS AFTER THE PROCEDURE---A CAT SCAN ON HER INTESTINES---MAYBE I CAN TALK HER INTO GOING TO WALMART ---I HAVE NOT BEEN TO THE NEW ONE THEY JUST BUILT DOWN THERE SO I WOULD LIKE TO GO EXPLORE---AND THE WALKING WOULD BE GOOD FOR HER OR RIDING IN THE CART---SHE NEEDS TO GET OUT A BIT MORE BUT WHEN THIS COLD AND NASTY, SHE STICKS TO HOME---i WOULD FIND THAT DEPRESSING MYSELF.
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

BUT SHE IS GONNA BE OK... AND THAT NEWS WAS ENUF TO RELIEVE THIS SAD HEART... SHE WONT BE COMING HOME TIL NEXT WEEK BUT SHE WILL BE COMING HOME AND THAT'S ALL I NEEDED TO HEAR... SUCH GREAT NEWS SHE HAD FINALLY EATEN... YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! PUPPIES ARE ALL STILL HANGIN IN THERE... AND THE FIREWOOD MAN ARRIVED YESTERDAY WITH A LOAD OF WOOD... SO WE'LL BE WARM... SURE WISH THE SUN WOULD COME OUT FOR A FEW DAYS AND DRY SOME OF IT... BUT I GUESS ONE BIG WISH GRANTED IS MORE THAN ENOUGH...

WOW NANCY, YOU SURE GOT HIT~ WE ONLY HAVE ABOUT A FOOT, AND LOTS OF WIND. TODAY WAS BEAUTIFUL OUT, SUNNY, NO WIND.... I COULD SEE WHERE THE DEER HAD MADE DESIGNS IN THE SNOW LAST NIGHT, INCLUDING MUNCHING ON SOME OF MY BUSHES... GO TO IT BAMBI!

BOY WILSON, YOU SURE NEEDED TO VENT! GLAD YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING IT HERE, BUT I THINK YOU SHOULD HIT YOUR SISTERS WITH SOME OF IT. THEY MIGHT HAVE SPENT A COUPLE DAYS DOING TILE, BUT HOW MANY HOURS DO YOU HAVE IN MAKING CABINETS, ON TOP OF SOLE CARE OF YOUR MOM AND DAD. AND I'D REMIND YOUR NIECE YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR MOM FOR AN APPOINTMENT, AND THERE'D BETTER BE GAS ENOUGH IN THE VAN TO DO IT. AND THEN TAKE ALL THE KEYS WITH YOU....LOL

ANYBODY LIKE TO SEW ON BUTTONS? DH HAS LOST ALL THE BUTTONS OFF THIS TOPCOAT, SO I HAVE TO FIND BUTTONS AND SEW THEM ON. I HATE SEWING ON BUTTONS....

FOUND A TREE I WANT FOR NEXT YEAR, BUT HESITATED TO GET IT AS I WASN'T SURE WHERE I STOOD WITH THE CHECKBOOK AND HAVING CHRISTMAS THIS WEEKEND. DH TOLD ME TO GO AHEAD AND GET IT IF I'LL BE HAPPY WITH IT. IT'S 50% OFF, SO THAT'S EVEN BETTER~ GOING TO GO IN THE MORNING, IF I DON'T DECIDE TO GO TONIGHT, AND GET IT. FORGOT TO PICK UP SOMETHING HE ASKED ME TO GET, SO HAVE TO REMEMBER TO GET IT TOO... GONNA HAVE A BUSY DAY TOMORROW... DON'T KNOW WHAT TIME THE KIDS WILL BE HERE, HOPE NOT UNTIL LATE AFTERNOON. GOING TO FINISH ALL THE WRAPPING AFTER I DO THE BUTTONS...

PERT, REALLY WISH I WAS CLOSE ENOUGH TO HELP YOU OUT. SO GLAD MANDY IS WILLING TO LET YOU SNEAK A PUP OR TWO IN ON HER. PRAYERS STILL GOING FOR MS. T. SOUNDS LIKE MAYBE SHE SHOULD GET FIXED TOO.

CAME IN HERE AFTER A NEEDLE AND THREAD, SO BETTER GO GET STITCHING... SURE YOU DON'T WANT TO HELP???

WOW! i THOUGHT THAT I HAD IT BAD BUT YOU'VE ALL SHOWN ME THAT IT CAN BE A LOT WORSE! WE WENT TO MY YOUNGEST DD FOR CHRISTMAS. TOO MUCH EXCITEMINT FOR THE 6 YRS OLD & HIS DAD FOUND OUT THAT HIS MOTHER WENT BEHIND HIS BACK & GOT HIM A VERY EXPENSIVE GAME THAT THEY'D DECIDED NOT TO GET HIM.I WAS ON PINS & NEEDLES THAT HE'D FIND OUT WHAT ELSE SHE GOT BEHIND HIS BACK. SO WE CAME HOME NOT VERY LONG AFTER DINNER. WE MISSED THE SNOW/ICE BUT THE WINDS REALLY STRONG & SO VERY COLD.. IT SEEMS LIKE THE WINDS GOTTEN WORSE OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS.

I ORDERED BILL A COUPLE OF BIRD HOSE PATTERNS ---- A SET OF GNOMES (MAN & WOMAN) & A SET OF CEDAR MEN. BOTH ARE MADE OUT OF CEDAR WOOD & WON'T HAVE TO BE PAINTED & I ALSO GOT SOME "EYES" FOR THEM. AND I'M GETTING MORE & MORE SEED CATALOGS WITH SO MANY DIFFERENT CONEHEAD FLOWERS. IT MAY BE COLD & VERY WIND OUT BUT I CAN ALREADY SEE THE THINGS I WANT WHERE I WANT THEM! I KNOW- I SHOULD LEARN TO ENJOY THE TIME I'M IN ---BUT THERE'S JUST NOT MUCH TO DO WHEN IT'S COLD!

HOPE EVERYONE HAS AGOOD & SAFE DAY!

I REALLY WISH I WAS CLOSE ENOUGH TO HELP YOU GIRLS OUT.. TALK ABOUT BEING SELF CENTERED

HAD TO TAKE THE DOG OUT AND HAD KNEE HIGH SNOW TO GO THROUGH,, JANITOR JUST GOT HERE AT ABOUT 12, IT TOOK HIM 3 HOURS FOR A 20 MINUTE DRIVE THIS MORNING.. IT IS TERRIBLE OUT TODAY AND NOT TOO MUCH GOING ON OUTSIDE,, THE JANITOR CLEARED THE DRIVEWAY BUT NOTHING ELSE HAS BEEN CLEARED.. STILL SNOWING TOO.


NEXT TIME KIRBY HAS TO GO OUT IF NOTHING HAS BEEN CLEARED I AM TAKING HIM TO THE GARAGE, I WILL TAKE A BAG AND SOME DISINFECTANT WITH ME..IF SOMEONE CAN TAKE HER DOG TO THE GARAGE AND KICK HIS POOP AGAINST THE POLES OR WALL AND NOT PICK UP, WELL I CAN PICK UP AND SPRAY ON THE SPOT HE GOES,, HOWEVER IF THE PLOWS HAVE PASSED I WILL TAKE HIM OUT

GUESS IT IS TIME TO EAT SOMETHING.. TAKE CARE ALL AND HAVE A GREAT DAY emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon AND THIS IS FOR EVERYONE TO SHARE emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon NANCY

IT IS SUNNY BUT CHILLY TODAY. HAVE TO GO TO MY UNCLE'S HOUSE TONIGHT FOR SUPPER. HE ALWAYS GETS US ALL TOGETHER AROUND CHRISTMAS TIME. AM EATING LIGHT TODAY AS I KNOW I WILL HAVE A HEAVY SUPPER TONIGHT. ORDERED MY ROSES THIS MORNING. I THINK THEY WILL FIT IN QUITE NICELY. HUBBY IS GOING TO BUILD ME A REAISED BED FOR MY BIRTHDAY FO ME TO PUT THEM IN. CAN HARDLY WAIT FOR SPRING SO I CAN GET OUT IN THE YARD AND PLAY. GOT A STRAWBERRY TOPSY TURVY FOR CHRISTMAS SO I HAVE TO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR SOME STRAWBERRY PLANTS THAT I KNOW WILL GROW HERE. I LOVE SPRING AND FALL AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL LOVE ME THIS YEAR SINCE I HAVE BEEN TAKING ALLERGY SHOTS FOR A LONG WHILE NOW.

LECATES... MY BROTHER AND SISTER SHUT ME OUT WHEN PEYTON AND I GOT TOGETHER CAUSE IT STOPPED THEIR CONTROL OVER MY LIFE... PEYTON STOOD UP TO THEM AND THEY REALLY DIDNT LIKE IT... IT HURT CAUSE THEY COULDNT SEE ALL THE JOY IN MY LIFE I NOW HAVE... THAT SEEMS TO BE CHANGING WHICH IS INDEED A BLESSING A SOURCE OF GREAT JOY TO ME CAUSE I'VE REALLY MISSED MY BROTHER'S CHILDREN... TOLD THORNTON MADELINE WANTED A PUP AND HE SAID HE HEARD... IF I CAN FIND A WAY TO GET ONE THERE I WILL CAUSE HE SEEMS RECEPTIVE... THE CALLS WERE QUITE A CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR ME...

JOY, GLAD IT IS EASING OFF---HOW MUCH SNOW DID YOU GET? PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOU WERE ASKING FOR IT---REMEMBER THIS SUMMER? HOHOHO
WILSON, REALLY? IF SHE COULD AFFORD TO SEND THEM TO VEGAS, THEN SHE COULD HAVE AFFORDED TO PAY A PROFESSIONAL TO DO THE WORK---AND THEY THEY COULD HAVE BEEN HELPING WITH THE FOLKS---AND YOU NEED TO SPEAK UP AND SAY THAT YOU NEED HELP, TOO. TALK TO YOUR DAD ABOUT YOUR MOM---MAYBE HE CAN BE THE ONE TO CONVINCE HER TO SHOWER MORE OFTEN---TELL HIM THAT WOULD REALLY HELP YOU ---THEN HE WILL FEEL LIKE HE IS HELPING. AND WHY IS NIECE GETTING TO BORROW THE VAN IF SHE DOES NOT PUT GAS BACK IN IT? TAKE ALL THE KEYS BACK HOME WITH YOU NEXT TIME. YOU CAN BE TOUGH ON MOM SO WE KNOW YOU "CAN" BE TOUGH ON THE REST OF THEM. MAYBE YOU SHOULD PUT SOME HEAT TAPE ON THEIR PIPES SO AS NOT TO HAVE THE PIPE PROBLEM AGAIN.
MY TASK TODAY IS TO CLEAN OUT THE REFRIG---PUTTING IN NEW BAKING SODA, TOO. FREEZER ICE JUST DID NOT SMELL OR TASTE RIGHT YESTERDAY SO EMPTIED THAT AND WILL LET IT REFILL.
I WAS AT BIG LOTS YESTERDAY---GOT A NEW SHOE RACK THAT WON'T FALL APART IN MY CLOSET---BUT WAS LOOKING AT SOLAR LIGHTS FOR THE GARDEN---THEY ARE STARTING TO PUT OUR KIND OF STUFF OUT ALREADY. SO WE CAN START OUR DREAMING AND PLANS FOR THE SPRING.
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

OH WILSON, I'D BE THERE IN A HEARTBEAT TO HELP, EVEN WITH THIS POOR BROKEN BODY, IF I COULD.

SAME FOR YOU PERT. TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH SICK MOMMA DOGS & THEN MAKING SURE THE PUPPIES ARE GETTING FED.

JOY, I HOPE YOU SNEEZES STOP SOON. & THANK YOU FOR YOUR IDEAS WITH DEALING WITH THE HOSPITAL, I MAY VERY WELL DO JUST THAT.

LECATES, I TRY TO PRACTICE TO NOT LET OTHERS BEHAVIOR CHANGE MY OWN, BUT IT CAN BE CHALLENGING. YOUR STRENGTH AT ACCOMPLISHING IT IS A REMINDER TO ME IT CAN BE DONE, & DONE WITH GRACE.

OLDERDANDRT, WAY TO GO ON THE SMALLER SIZE... YOU ROCK!

ROSES, GLAD YOU HAD A GOOD HOLIDAY


OFF TO FINISH MY BREATHING TREATMENT, & GO BACK TO BED.

OMG! WAY TOO MUCH STUFF GOING ON TO COMMENT ON EVERYTHING!

BUT, PERT I PRAY FOR YOUR PUPS TO GET THEIR MOM BACK. THAT IS WAY TOO MUCH TO BOTTLE FEED THAT MANY AROUND THE CLOCK. NOT TO MENTION THE PRICE OF MILK REPLACER. MY THOUGHTS ARE WITH YOU AND ALL YOUR FAMILY.

I HAD A BIG POST GOING EARLIER TODAY BUT LOST IT WHEN I HAD TO HEAD BACK TO MY FOLKS BECAUSE I GOT A CALL SAYING THEY HAD NO WATER AGAIN. THIS TIME IT WAS NOT THEIR PUMP BUT THE LINES WERE FROZEN. MY OLDEST SISTER AND I SPENT MOST OF THE DAY THERE TODAY, UNDER THE HOUSE TRYING TO THAW THEM OUT. WE GOT THEM DONE. I HAVE BEEN FILLING WATER JUGS ALL WEEKEND TO KEEP THEM GOING. TOMORROW I HAVE TO TAKE MY DAD TO SUPERIOR VETS FOR AN APPT. MY NIECE HAS HAD THE VAN FOR 2 DAYS AND THAT MEANS IT WILL BE EMPTY ON GAS IF I GET IT BACK IN TIME FOR DADS APPT. IT NEVER FAILS. GET IN AND HIT THE KEY AND ALL YOU HEAR IS THE ALARM THAT SAYS YOU ARE ABOUT TO RUN OUT OF GAS!!!!! I HATE THAT. IT IS NOT EASY TO GET EITHER OF MY FOLKS OUT THE DOOR IN TIME FOR AN APPT BUT THEN HAVE TO STOP FOR FUEL TOO?!?!?!?!?OKAY. ENOUGH COMPLAINING. (FOR NOW) LOL

LOVE ALL YOU GUYS LIKE FAMILY. (ONLY I DON'T HAVE TO FIND A RIDE TO TAKE YOU TO APPTS") JUST KIDDING ABOUT THAT. NANCY I WOULD TAKE YOU TO THE DARK SIDE IF I WAS CLOSER. I SEEM TO BE THE ONE WHO HAS TO DO ALL THE BAD STUFF DRIVING HERE ANYWAY. HOPE THE REST OF YOUR DR VISITS ARE CLOSER TO HOME.

JUST FOUND OUT TODAY THAT BECAUSE MY 2 SISTERS HAVE BEEN SO BUSY ON THE TILE JOB AT MY NIECES HOUSE THAT SHE IS SENDING THEM BOTH TO VEGAS FOR PAYMENT. THAT IS REALLY NICE OF HER TO DO...BUT....THE WHOLE TIME THEY ARE WORKING ON HER TILE, I AM TAKING CARE OF THE FOLKS. SO SHE SENDS THEM BOTH TO VEGAS.....WHO IS STILL TAKING CARE OF THE FOLKS? I HAD MY MOM TO 3 APPTS LAST WEEK, MY DAD HAS ONE TOMORROW AND MY MOM HAS 4 NEXT WEEK. I AM WORN OUT THINKING ABOUT IT! IT WOULDN'T BE SO BAD IF I DID NOT HAVE TO DRAG MY MOM OUT THE DOOR WITH A COME ALONG!!!!
PART OF HER ISSUES IS BEING AFRAID TO LEAVE THE HOUSE. AT LEAST WE GOT THEIR WATER THAWED OUT TODAY . OTHERWISE I WOULD BE DRAGGING HER KICKING. SCREAMING , AND BITING DOWN HERE EVERYDAY TO HOG TIE HER IN MY SHOWER. SHE DOES NOT LIKE TO TAKE SHOWERS ANYMORE EITHER. SHE WOULD RATHER BE OUT OF WATER ALL WINTER THAN TAKE ONE SHOWER A WEEK. SHE GETS SO OFFENDED WHEN YOU TELL HER SHE STINKS. BUT WHAT CAN YOU SAY. "I WILL NOT TAKE YOU TO ANY MORE DR VISITS WHEN YOU SMELL LIKE SOMETHING THE DOG ROLLED IN?" GET YOUR A$$ IN THE SHOWER! HAVE I COMPLAINED ENOUGH YET? ALL MY DAD COULD SAY WAS HOW HE FEELS SO BAD BECAUSE HE CAN'T HELP AND SAYS HE IS WORTHLESS. HE IS IN A WHEELCHAIR AND HAS NO LEGS. OKAY I AM DONE BEACHIN FOR NOW.

TALK TO YA ALL WHEN I AM IN A BETTER MOOD. (I HAVEN'T EVEN QUIT THE SIGS YET. CAN YOU IMAGINE NEXT WEEK?!!!!)

THAT'S THE WEEKEND I WAS THINKING OF. HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.... I CAN FINALLY SEE MY NEIGHBORS HOUSE, SO IT'S LETTING UP ALMOST ON SCHEDULE. LOL

KIM, ANOTHER SUGGESTION, AFTER YOU GET THE NAME OF THE PERSON IN CHARGE OF THE NURSING STAFF. WRITE A LETTER, DETAILING EVERYTHING YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD, BOTH BY YOUR MOM AND THE NURSES. INCLUDE WHO YOU HAVE TALKED TOO, AND SEND A COPY TO THE HEAD OF THE NURSING STAFF, AND ONE TO THE CEO OF THE HOSPITAL ITSELF. I HAD TO DO THAT LAST TIME I WAS IN BECAUSE I GOT SUCH ROTTEN CARE. MAKE AS MANY WAVES AS YOU CAN. LET THEM THINK YOU ARE GOING TO BE SHOWING UP ON THEIR DOORSTEP, WITHOUT SAYING IT AS SUCH. ASK MOM IF YOU CAN COME TO THE HOSPITAL TO HELP HER GET THINGS STRAIGHTENED OUT. ALL SHE CAN SAY IS NO.... BUT KEEP NOTES IF YOU GET THRU TO THE PERSON IN CHARGE, AND LIST THE NAME OF EVERYONE YOU TALK TO....

HAM AND CABBAGE SOUNDS YUMMY. I LIKE IT, BUT DH WON'T TOUCH IT. THAT IS SOMETHING I WILL FIX FOR MYSELF IF THERE'S LEFTOVER HAM, THAT OR SCALLOPED POTATOES. HE WON'T EAT THOSE EITHER, BUT I LIKE THEM, SO OCCASIONALLY I'LL FIX ONE OF THE ABOVE, AND HE HAS JUST PLAIN HAM AND POTATOES...PICKY YES, BUT A WHOLE LOT LESS THAN HE USED TO BE! I DON'T COOK LIKE MOMMA DID.... EVERY MONDAY WAS THE SAME THING, EVERY TUESDAY WAS THE SAME THING, ETC. EVERY WEDNESDAY WAS SPAGHETTI, FRIDAY WAS PIZZA... HE WOULDN'T EAT CHICKEN, ROAST BEEF (STILL NOT A FAVORITE, BUT HE WILL EAT IT), PORK ROAST, ETC... LOL

THINK I'LL GO TO BED. LOTS TO DO TOMORROW, AND REALLY TIRED AGAIN TONIGHT. emoticon

KIM, CALL DURING THE DAY AND ASK TO SPEAK TO THE PERSON IN CHARGING OF THE NURSING STAFF---AND IT WOULD HELP TO HAVE NURSES NAMES THAT ARE BEING A PROBLEM---AND IF THEY ARE LIKE MOST HOSPITALS, THE NURSES ARE ON 12 HOUR SHIFTS AND ARE NOT THERE EVERY DAY---SO DIFFERENT ONES WILL SEE HER EACH DAY---ALTHOUGH SOME FLOORS THE DAY PEOPLE ARE ON A WEEKLY SCHEDULE. HOPE THIS DOES NOT MAKE YOU WORSE---AND GLAD YOUR BF DID NOT HAVE TO GO OUT IN THE BAD WEATHER
JOY, SOUNDS LIKE THEY MIGHT BE BETTER AND SAFER TO COME UP MLK WEEKEND--WHICH IS MICHAEL'S WEDDING WEEKEND--LOL---HOPE YOU ARE NOT COMING DOWN WITH ANYTHING----WE HAD HAM AND CABBAGE TONIGHT--YUMMY
