I AM ACTUALLY PLANNING ON WALKING TO THE HOSPITAL TOMORROW---MICHAEL IS TAKING MY CAR TO WVU TO TAKE MY NIECE BACK TO COLLEGE---AND YES, WE LIVE CLOSE ENOUGH FOR THIS---IF ONLY TAKES 5 MINUTES TO GET THERE FROM HERE---AND THAT IS IF THE LIGHTS ARE RED---I THINK THE WALK WILL BE GOOD FOR ME. IF NASTY I WILL TAKE HIS CAR.

Lecates I would gladly trade with you if it would help but..... I don't think you'd want this breaking down body. LOL Try to take it easy and not do to much. tension, worrying, and traveling back an forth will tire you out badly. Take it from me, I know. I will be praying for you!!!! emoticon

CINDYLOU, THE GAZEBO IS MORE FOR PLANT RESPONSES ALTHOUGH WE DO TALK GARDENING ON HERE TOO---BUT THIS IS DEFINITELY A JACK OF ALL TRADES TALK HERE. USUALLY QUIETER THERE THIS TIME OF YEAR EXCEPT FOR THE WARM WEATHER PEOPLE.
DEBBIE--YES, THE SPARK BOOK IS WORTH IT---I AM DOING IT SLOWLY AND FOLLOWING THRU BY DOING THE STUFF ON SPARK THAT RELATES TO EACH CHAPTER---I WOULD BE FURTHER EXCEPT FOR THIS CRISIS. EVERYTHING WITH ME IS ON THE BACK BURNER---JUST TRYING TO GET THRU EACH DAY WITHOUT FALLING APART.
NANCY, TELL BIL TO FIX IT OR I WILL COME UP THERE AND PULL A DORENE ON HIM! LOL

Good Afternoon Everyone!!! Hope your day is going great!!! The rain has finally stopped again. My toothache is not throbbing right now but it is letting me know it's still hanging around. The back of my neck is really giving me a rough time today too.

Lecates glad to hear your mom is off the respirator. Michael is being prayed through a safe trip.

Cath pooy on your sis! See your dad anyway! maybe things will work out so you won't have to have much contact with her. Keep the Lord and your parents in mind, not her. And you're not a selfish mom just a caring and concerned one.

Debby you didn't come across wrong to me and you're emoticon . I can sure do my share of complaining too! LOL

Cruz I have two dates picked. The 14th cause I'm a total romantic and the 2nd as it's Ground Hog Day and I'm thinking maybe early too!

Well you Ladies have a fantastic afternoon and evening....... emoticon emoticon emoticon

WOULDN'T IT BE NICE IF SHE DECIDED TO COME EARLY? THEY USED TO GIVE A 2 WEEK TIME SPAN ON BOTH SIDES OF THE DATE THEY GIVE YOU BUT DON'T KNOW IF THEY STILL DO.

L, SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR MOM. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU.

IT'S SO MUDDY OUT! IT'S REALLY WORSE THAN THE ICE WAS. THE WEATHERMAN SAID FEB WAS GOING TO BE REALLY BAD WITH BITTER COLD. GREAT, DOES THAT MEAN SPRING WILL BE LATE?

DID ANYONE SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE SPARK?

HELLO ALL! SLEPT IN A LITTLE LATE THIS MORNING....IT WAS GOOD!

AVATAR WAS SOLD OUT AT ONE THEATRE SO WE TRIED THE 3:30 SHOWING AT ANOTHER THEATRE AND IT WAS SOLD OUT SO WE BOUGHT TICKETS TO THE 7:00 AND CAME BACK. AVATAR IN 3D-IMAX WAS REALLY COOL! i WASN'T TOO KEEN ON SEEING THE MOVIE BUT FRIENDS AND HUBBY WANTED TO SO I WENT ALONG. REALLY NEAT TO SEE IN 3D AND BEAUTIFUL COLORS ON THE SCREEN.

IN BETWEEN ALL THAT WE MADE A TRIP TO TARGET AND BABIES R US AND GOT ANY BABY ITEMS WE MIGHT NEED AT FIRST. I'VE BEEN HAVING BRAXTON HICKS FOR A FEW DAYS AND LAST NIGHT THEY WERE FEELING STRONGER SO NOW HUBBY WANTS TO GET EVERYTHING PREPARED FOR BABY TODAY JUST IN CASE!

I'VE HAD SOOOO MANY PEOPLE TELL ME THAT THEIR FIRST CAME 2 WEEKS EARLY (EVEN I CAME 2 WEEKS EARLY). THAT WOULD PUT NATALIE ON JANUARY 28.

I WAS THINKING THAT IF SOMEONE GUESSED HER ARRIVAL ACCURATELY, THEN I WOULD GIVE THEM A SPARK GOODIE.

IF SHE TELLS ONE TODAY, TELL ONE ON HER---EVEN IF YOU MAKE IT UP--LOL---SOUNDS LIKE SHE IS PROBABLY JEALOUS OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR DAD. OR JUST SMILE AND SAY, MY, HAVEN'T I COME A LONG WAY! AREN'T YOU GLAD I MATURED---AND EMPHASIZE THE WORD I! I BET A FEW THERE WILL BE LAUGHING UP THEIR SLEEVE AT HER THEN.
I GOT A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP , A SHOWER THIS MORNING, AND A LOAD OF CLOTHERS IN THE WASHER AND ONE IN THE DRYER. MOM MIGHT BE MOVED OUT OF ICU TODAY BUT IF NOT, THEN MONDAY---THEY ONLY HAVE 2 PATIENTS IN THE ICU AND I LIKE HER HAVING MORE ONE ON ONE RIGHT NOW SO I HOPE THEY KEEP HER TODAY.
NANCY, DID YOU GET THAT SNOW BLOWER FIXED? HOPE SO.
MICHAEL WILL BE TAKING MY NIECE BACK TOMORROW---SO KEEP THEM IN PRAYERS TOMORROW. SUCH A LONG RIDE FOR HIM.

WELL, IT LOOKS AS THOUGH CRUZ ISN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO HOPES NATALIE DEBUTS EARLY! LOL
CATHY, JUST STOP TELLING YOUR SISTER ANYTHING OF IMPORTANCE TO YOU- THAT WAY SHE CAN'T BLAB IT EVERYWHERE. THEM IF SHE ASKS, TELL HER SHE'S JUST NOT MATURE ENOUGH TO BE TRUSTWORTHY. AS FOR THE CHILDHOOD STORIES, WELL, HER LIFE MUST BE PRETTY DULL AND EMPTY IF THOSE ARE THE ONLY ONES SHE'S GOT-- FEEL FREE TO TELL HER I SAID SO. MAYBE SHE WON'T LIKE IT IF SHE KNOWS TH SHOE IS ON THE OTHER FOOT.

THANK YOU EVERYONE, I KNEW I COULD COUNT ON YOU AND YOU ALL CAME THROUGH. I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SPENDING TIME WITH MY DAD. HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE PARENT THAT I AM THE CLOSEST TO AND HE HAS NEVER LET ME DOWN. ONE OF THE THINGS MY SISTER DOES IS TO REPEAT THOSE INCREDIBILY PAINFUL CHILDHOOD STORIES, YOU KNOW, THE ONES WHERE WE USUALLY LEARN THOSE PESKY LITTLE LIFE LESSONS. SHE WILL REPEAT IT IN THE CONTEXT OF, "OH I WAS IN A MEETING THE OTHER DAY WITH EVERYONE EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI AND I TOLD THEM ABOUT THE TIME YOU . . .WE ALL LAUGHED, THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. SO, IF SO AND SO SAYS SOMETHING, YOU'LL KNOW WHY. WHY DID YOU DO THAT ANYWAY?". AND THIS WILL HAVE BEEN SOMETHING I'VE ASKED HER TO KEEP TO HERSELF IF SHE IS UNABLE TO HONOR MY ASKING HER TO NOT REPEAT IT AT ALL. NORMAL PEOPLE WOULD NOT REPEAT IT. THAT'S JUST AN EXAMPLE, HER SPORT IS TO BELITTLE ME. I THINK IN MANY WAYS, SHE MAY BE JEALOUS OF SOME THINGS IN MY LIFE, BUT SHE'S 60 YEARS OLD! WHEN IS THIS SIBLING CRUD GOING TO STOP?

WELL, IT'S GOING TO BE EXCITING TO SEE WHEN THIS LIL' GIRL DOES COME. WHEN I DON'T SEE CRUZ HERE, I WONDER...BUT THEN I SEE HER ON FACEBOOK, OBVIOUSLY IN ONE PIECE.

CATH, I CALL IT 'MY BIG GIRL PANTIES'. I'M GOING TO PUT MY BIG(MATURE)PANTIES ON & BE THE GROWN UP. I WENT TO A BBQ RECENTLY WHERE I KNEW THERE WAS GOING TO BE SOMEONE THERE I REALLY DID NOT LIKE. I ALMOST DIDN'T GO, BUT THOUGHT ABOUT HOW I WOULD REACT.

IT'S DIFFICULT TO BE THE GROWN UP SOMETIMES ISN'T IT. MY SISTER IS A PSYCHOTHERAPIST. SHE SAYS WHEN SOMETHING BOTHERS YOU ABOUT SOMEONE..IF THEY IRRITATE YOU..THEN GENERALLY, IT'S SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF. I LOOK @ LIFE A LOT FROM THIS ANGLE NOW. HELPS WHEN I GET ANNOYED WITH THE THINGS MIL DOES OR EVEN FRIENDS. GOOD LUCK emoticon

LECATES, HANG IN THERE. Scary FOR YOU TO WATCH YOUR MUM GO THU THIS emoticon

WENT FOR THAT LOVELY WALK TODAY. WE DIDN'T DO AS LONG & CUT THROUGH SOME RESERVES. JUST AS I WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE, IT PELTED DOWN WITH RAIN. I GRABBED MY JACKET & IT STOPPED BY THE TIME I GOT TO THE END OF THE RD! EVERYTHING IS SO DRY.

I HOPE THIS DOESN'T COME ACROSS THE WRONG WAY...BUT ONE OF THE REASONS I LIKE COMING TO THIS THREAD (BESIDES ALL THE NICE, WONDERFUL PEOPLE) IS WE CAN TALK ABOUT OUR TROUBLES AND NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL NO ONE TRIVIALIZES IT AND TELLS US TO STOP WHINING... THE PEOPLE HERE LISTEN AND ARE SUPPORTIVE AND IT ALSO SHOWS ME THAT I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE DEALING WITH TOUGH STUFF AND IN FACT MANY ARE DEALING WITH THINGS WAY MORE SERIOUS THEN ME.

THANKS EVERYONE!!

LECATES AND EV, I'M GLAD EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE MOVING IN A POSITIVE DIRECTION. VERY ENCOURAGING.

JOJO, I USED TO WORK WITH A PA THAT WE WERE SURE THE LETTERS STOOD FOR 'POMPOUS A**' RATHER THAN PHYSICIANS ASSISTANT!

FEEL LIKE I'M ABOUT CRAWLING IN HERE THIS EVE. WAS WAITING ALL DAY FOR FINAL WORD ON MY SON BEING DEPLOYED TO HAITI. TRULY A GOOD NEWS BAD NEWS FEELING. I REALLY WANT TO DO WHATEVER I CAN TO HELP THERE, WHAT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME ON HIS GOING THERE IS ALL OF THE DISEASES THEY DEAL WITH ON A GOOD DAY! LET ALONE AFTER AN EARTHQUAKE WITH ALL OF THE DECAY. I KNOW HE'D BE OKAY, THAT HE'S HAD ALL THE VACCINES. MY ONLY EXCUSE IS THAT I'M A SELFISH MOM.
AND, TOMORROW WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY CELEBRATION WITH MY DAD AND STEPMOM. RECENTLY HIS MENTAL FACULTIES HAVE TAKEN A NOSEDIVE. HE'S 83. I NEED TO SEE HIM, BUT NOT SURE HOW WELL I WILL DEAL WITH IT. BUT, THAT'S NOT THE WORST. THE WORSE IS MY SISTER. I DO NOT LIKE HER. SHE'S OLDER THAN I AM AND SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN NASTY. BY CHOICE, I STAY AWAY FROM HER. SHE WILL BE AT THIS HOLIDAY GATHERING. IT WILL BE ABOUT 7 HOURS DRIVE, ROUND TRIP, I REALLY WANT TO SEE MY DAD AND STEPMOM, BUT NOT MY SISTER. I JUST WANT TO GO TO BED.

emoticon GUESS I'LL HAVE A LITTLE CHEESE WITH MY WHINE, PLEASE.

CRUZ, I'M GOING FOR THE 14TH

POTATOES IN STRAW WITH NO DIRT, WELL, THAT SOUNDS REALLY INTERESTING. POTATOES IN OLD TYRES IS EASY. 1 TYRE,FILL WITH DIRT, PLANT 4 POTATOES & COVER WITH A LITTLE DIRT. WHEN U SEE SHOOTS, COVER WITH ANOTHER TYRE & ADD MORE DIRT. I DID MINE 3 TYRES HIGH, BUT THAT MAY BE OVER KILL.

WARM & MUGGY TODAY. GOING FOR A WALK WITH A FELLOW SPARKLER SOON. WE ARE GOING TO DO THE 10K TRACK ALONG THE STREAM AGAIN.

Good Afternoon Ladies!!! Hope your day is going well . The house is quiet and I am alone as hubby is over at a friends watching the Saints win (I hope) this game. The day is durry and dark as was yesterday and tomorrow. It's making me so sleepy even though I was up during the night last night with a horrid toothache.

Joy thanks for keeping up updated on Lecates mom!!! Your GD sounds quite talented and you should be proud of her. Good Luck getting the spark back for the book!!

Evelyn still praying for your mom also. Glad to hear she's coming home today.

Debbie emoticon back!!! I know what you mean about being isolated. I'm just 30 min. away from most of my family . They don't come or call and I've not the gas to go. I do call one of my four sister though.

Lecates glad you are home!!! I'm keeping you and your family in my prayers. That DNR is a hard one!!! But I understand. That's what my mom wanted too as hard as it was for us.

JoJo you too isolated?!?!

Pearl I've got your temp beat by a few. It was 58 and 59 here yesterday and today. At least you're getting to collect all your potatoes that you put all the work into.

Nancy snow for the next three days!!!! That would be good news to me instead of all this rain for threes long days and maybe four. Some of the rivers are already cresting at flood stage.

Wishing you guys a great rest of afternoon, evening, and weekend........ emoticon emoticon emoticon

LET'S GET OUT OF THE SILLY MOOD THAT YOU ARE IN.. NO ROOM FOR DEPRESSION IN HERE,, WE HAVE TO THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET SNOW FOR THE NEXT 3 DAYS WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW 30S, SO MY POSITIVE THOUGHT IS THAT I WILL HAVE TO CLEAR UNLESS MY BROTHER IN LAW COMES TO FIX THE WIRE ON THE SNOW BLOWER.BUT I KNOW HE WILL BE HERE

SO WHAT DO YOU SAY GIRLS,,DO WE START OUR FIRST POST OF THE DAY WITH A POSITIVE THOUGHT.. I THINK IT IS A GREAT DAY TO START THE DAY

Hi Pearl,
nice to meet you...

Today the weather is above freezing and everything is melting. Has been like this 3 days now. So just seems dirty out. I'm not sick of winter yet but then temps haven't dipped too low here much. But not so for florida...we won't be able to afford oranges here shortly!!

my guess for the baby will be my sons birthday.. Feb 13th.

The kitties are fine....haven't had the money to get them fixed so its not pleasant at times with 4 unneutered tom cats... in fact I rescued Oreo this morning on the porch from the old Tom cat...and some days so I can sleep I have to put little Andy in the cage to keep him safe from Oreo and Cookie.

I will post pictures in a few days and the link when I find some time...I haven't been to that site since I was last here....I think it has been a year or more.
