Dee I did that a couple of years ago and do you know what I have adjusted to the lesser money without any dramas. The best part is I have my sanity. Good for You!!!!

HI All, do hope that all who are feeling under the weather feel better quickly. HUGS!

me, hanging in there. took a different position at the same store, similar to what I was doing but without all the headaches and stress (at least I hope that's the case) it's less money but feel its worth it for my sanity.

Vicki hope you are well quickly from the cold.

Cathy praying Kelsa is well enough to do the Special Olympics. I know how much it means to her.

I have a scratchy throat myself this morning. Of course it is the day I go back to work so am hoping to get some lozenges to help keep it under control.

Hugs to all.

Vicky, hope you are feeling better soon.

Georgia, hope you find time for you today.

Becky, this is Monday, your frenzied day. Hope it goes really quickly and few of these types of days are left. How is the remodeling coming?

Dee, I hope you are doing well. I know the job is so stressful. Hang in there.

Well, Kelsa is getting my cold...not good. I am nursing her big time so she hopefully won't miss the dress rehearsal tonight for Special Olympics. This is a mandatory session or she can't be a part of it. God is in control. Hopefully she will be okay tonight.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Georgia, sounfs like an amazing experience. So glad you enjoyed it.
Becky, I'm so glad your family enjoyed special time together. Glad you found time to have some fun.
Vicky, I'm glad the new job is working out so well.
I'm still figjtimg a nasty cold that I've had for nearly a week. It's hard when you still need to get everything done which wears ya down even more. Oh well, this virus will pass.
Tomorrow we go to Kelsa's dress rehearsal for Special Olympics Equestrian. The place we go for horseback hosts it so that is really nice. I'm so proud of her. She can't handle people but put her on a horse and she is a different girl.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Special hugs to all, Cathy

Sounds like a lovely day Becky -enjoy.

I ended up on short notice going to see Riverfire from the boys apartment and up the hill. Oh my goodness how much fun was that. Great dinner afterwards and then I came home. Photos on Facebook soon.

The fighter jets and helicopters were awesome too. Some great stunts.

Hi, everyone! Lots of hugs to you all.

What a week so far! Long days. Too much still to accomplish. I will share pix in a blog soon - Ev has made a "teenaged Iron Man" costume for our oldest son to wear as one of the hosts of the high school's homecoming rally on Friday. And we got a day of amazing rain yesterday - yay!!! It has been months since we even had a drop. So very grateful for that. I hope we get more soon. Oh, and guess what? Our windows & doors (originally ordered in late June) finally were delivered yesterday - they put most of them in today. Yay!!! :)

Dee, so glad you have a break. Hope you just take some you time and enjoy.
Hope everyone else is doing well.

Very rainy here today. I spent more time out in the forested area behind our house. The girls and I clear the tall weeds and cut branches that are in the way. We only clear what is necessary to walk the path, but there is so much! We even moved a huge branch that had fallen and blocked the path. Sore and tired, but great workout!
School is going well

Hope all is well with everyone!

I've spent most the day working on schoolwork. Just a part of the "teacher hat" which I know many of you experience as well.
I am loving my "new-old" truck. The dealer did what they could to take care of the issues of concern and didn't charge us. Phew!
Very busy with church, school, life. All is well.
Parent visit was as usual. They left for home and I am relieved...

Even after all this time, it still throws me when you talk about the seasons opposite of what I am living. :) We have (thank God) had a very pleasant September so far - cool(er), cloudy, even a little drizzle. This weekend is supposed to heat up, and there is a slight chance of rain (please, God!) on Monday - hot and humid is not my favorite weather, but I am desperate for rain.

TGIF! Insanely long, tough week. I need to sleep and relax this weekend. I hope everyone has a good weekend. Hugs to all!

Oh Cathy I know you know how I feel. It is so distressing when it happens but I have made a decision not to let it get to me any longer. He owns this anger not me. He owns his bad manners not me. Time for me to stop making excuses for him and focus on me and my health.

I understand how your parents visiting can be stressful. Praying that it all comes to normal very soon for you.

Hugs to all.

Hi Everyone,
Things have been crazy busy here with school which is going great and my parents visiting which is hard for me for so many reasons.
Dee, so sorry the job situation is so tough and unfair. You deserve better. Hugs my friend, stay strong. I hope it all works out for you and I'll be praying the Dr. appts. go well.

Vicky, so glad the job is going well! Yay!

Georgia, I am so, so sorry that your son is being so disrespectful and cruel. It is so heartbreaking when our grown kids don't deal with their own junk and use us as scapegoats. I know personally how your heart hurts. You are a beautiful person and don't deserve this! I'm always here for you. Hugs.

Becky, hope your schedule settles down soon and you find some time to breathe.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Sending good thoughts Becky.

Today is another of Barry's hospital appointments but today I am going to leave him there and catch a bus into the city (about 15 mins from the hospital( and walk down a few blocks to a Synagogue. They are having a holocaust museum display and my son has seen it and says it is amazing. Only here for 2 weeks so was lucky to get a ticket.

Last night my estranged son rang me and the phone call was rather hard to handle. He has yet again told me he wants nothing to do with me and would get a restraining order if I ever tried to contact his wife again.

Life is rather cruel at the moment. Praying for guidance from above.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Good to hear Vicki. It will be a great year for you.

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.

Popping in to send hugs to everyone. I really don't know where the weeks go now. Only 5 more of this crazy schedule, then maybe it will slow down a little more for the rest of the semester.

Fingers crossed all goes positive and great for you Dee.

See what the doctor says and go from there.

I am so very tired with all this running to and from Barry's hospital appointments. I cannot wait for the weekend so I can rest.

Thanks Ladies, it's rough but it was to go back behind the pharmacy counter as a cashier and the pharmacist decided not to wait any longer and hired someone else. Seems he didn't think mgmt would let me step down. But they did. Didn't fight me at all on it which makes me think they wanted me out of the position. Plus I had heard some chatter that mgmt was just waiting for me to make a mistake and then I was out of there. Kinda took myself out of that equation by stepping down. Need the benefits so will be a cashier up front for a few weeks and then hopefully get the other position I applied for. Need to get thru some doc appointments this month and see what they tell me before looking elsewhere.

Great first day Vicki.

Becky great that you had a "quiet" day for a change. Not long now.

Happy birthday to Ev.

Hope it was a great day.

Busy work day and just relaxing now.

Love the theme, Cathy! Thanks. You ladies are great support, as are my husband & sons. I don't talk about losing weight outside of you all, because I always sabotage myself if I mention a loss to anyone else.

Hugs to everyone. Wishing you happiness at work and at home.

The painters showed up at 7:45 this morning (on the holiday) - our contractor had told us that no one would be here until Tues. Ev asked them not to work today - they worked all last weekend, so we have not had a break from workers except for the last couple of days. We just wanted to rest today and not worry about if we could walk outside or not. The painters said that was fine - they had several other jobs that they could go to. Today, we celebrated Ev's birthday - tomorrow he will be the same age as I am until Dec. 18. :) I plan to post pix in a blog this week - the house, the Iron Man gauntlet and glove with repulser that Ev is making for Caddy's homecoming rally host audition, etc. So much going on around here.

It is hard when change comes Vicki. I understand.

How is the new job? All settled into your new environment?

Just doing sdome washing before I go to work. A woman's work is never done.

Great theme for September

I do have my mom here. But even she has her limits and I feel I may lose her soon. She's been talking about moving to NC and I can't blame her. She has grand kids there who are small and mine are growing up.

Michael is very supportive. He is there for me to talk to, or cry to.

In glad we're all here for each other , to support each other.

Cathy how perfect is the title. You chose well.

I am like you I have no "in person" support other than my mum and she does not know half of the issues.

My cyber friends are the best and most supportive one could ask for.

So ladies Thank you. xo

Hi Everyone,

The title for our Cafe this month speaks for itself. You are all the most supportive encouraging people I have ever known...ever.
Do you have a support system in place "in person?" I don't and that makes it hard sometimes especially making me feel like I have to handle everything myself all the time. Ever feel that way?
Let's think about who we have as a support system or how we can find people that can be that too us. Sometimes it's just one person, or even a spouse.
In regards to the posts from August...
Georgia, I hope you had a wonderful relaxing day on Father's Day.
Becky, hope you are doing well and things aren't too crazy. Sounds like the work on the house is really coming along nicely.
Vicky, so happy for you with the new job. Hoping Bryan is doing better.
Dee, I am so sorry that the job situation is just horrible right now. I know it has been such a challenge for so long. Have you thought about finding a job at a totally different place? I know that isn't easy, but maybe it's better. Hang in there. I just know it's got to be so hard working a job where people don't appreciate your hard work and then you are passed over when you were supposed to get the job. So, so sorry. You deserve better! Prayers for you my friend!!
It was a really busy day for me working around the house and getting ready for school. All is well.

Hugs to all, Cathy
