Written By: Bobo on 11/30/08 at 8:46 pm

Well it's December now. Or maybe it's not. But it is here.

Everyone share their news and stuff as soon as it reaches December wherever they are!

It's OFFICIALLY, the start of summer here, as of today (December 1) . Mid 70's, Fahrenheit wise ...  a so-so start. Expect it to get a LOT hotter .. but the weather's been all over the place, last month or so.

I try not to ask too often, but I really need some prayers, good thoughts, vibes or whatever you believe in for me.

Ever since we've decided to move (and have moved) all that my husband and I seem to do anymore is fight viciously.  I can't seem to communicate and I don't know what to say to make it better.  This marriage was the best thing that ever happened to me, but I just don't know anymore what is left and how to talk to him.  I HATE HATE ABHOR arguments and will try to avoid them with every bit that I have, however...it just doesn't seem to be enough anymore.  It's always arguments, even after I agree with his original statement, then we argue about having wasted time arguing.  If I stay quiet to try to keep peace, then we argue about me being quiet.

I'm so sick I just can't think straight anymore. I don't want this marriage to end and I certainally don't want to have to find another mate nor move back home with my parents. 

Please, if you have a moment, just a quick prayer for some sort of solution.

WOW .... HEAVY !    :o


I had NO idea.


I reckon the BEST thing you two can do ... if you're BOTH committed to this marriage /deeply care .... get both of you along to a marriage counsellor .... PRONTO.


You need an UNBIASED helper ... to get you both to see the underlying messages in your conflicts with one another .... and how to resolve these to a win-win situation.


That's my hunch, anyway.


Good vibes .... to you !  :)

I'm sorry to hear it's a difficult for you right now Patty. it's not easy, communicating when every conversation turns negative. I sure hope you two will figure out how to get that loving feeling back. 

...ok, now it's December for me. I tried to hang up some Christmas lights outside but my ladder wasn't tall enough. I'm gonna borrow my bro-in-laws tomorrow. pretty much stayed in & watched 2 movies with Diane & Julie. that was nice. I'm off work tomorrow, going to a Dr.  appoinment to get a CPAP machine since I was recently diagnosed with a mild form of sleep apnea. usually I'm fine if I sleep on my side. here's what the device is and what is for:

(Continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP) uses a machine to help a person who has obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) breathe more easily during sleep. A CPAP machine increases air pressure in your throat so that your airway does not collapse when you breathe in. When you use CPAP, your bed partner may sleep better, too.

You use CPAP at home every night while you sleep. The CPAP machine will have one of the following:

A mask that covers your nose and mouth
A mask that covers your nose only-called nasal continuous positive airway pressure, or NCPAP (this type of mask is most common)
Prongs that fit into your nose) 


about 6 weeks ago, I spent the night at a sleep center to have a sleep study done, and the study the first half of night was with no sleep aid, the second half, I was hooked up with a CPAP machine and the results were that my sleep was deeper and less episodes of waking during sleep. anyways, it sucks to struggle to breath at night (mainly when I sleep on my back)  and it's been an ongoing condition for years, and now we know what it is and hopefully this will help.

Glad to hear the machine works for you Mike. I may have to look into one of those myself...but they are so expensive!  What happens if it CRAPs itself?

You have my prayers, thoughts and a little bit of karma coming your way!

Just remember you can not make the marriage work alone!!!!  It takes two and it is a lot of "work" by both parties involved. 

If someone wants to be confrontational, they can be confrontational about anything and it does not matter the subject, there is nothing the other person can do right. So those issues have to be worked through, and I believe (and it was mentioned by another poster) that marriage counseling may be your best bet!  Having the non involved third party two look at both sides and find out where the problems are and where the compromises will need to be made.

Hopefully it will get better

Maybe it is just the stress of having to move and get resettled, but I would still take Alan's suggestion and go see a marriage couselor.  BOTH of you, not just yourself.  As was pointed out by 2kidsami, there are two of you in this marriage and he needs to make the effort as well.  If he doesn't want to or balks at it or says it's stupid or whatever, then go by yourself and get the help so that you can decide what to do and where this marriage is going.

*hugs*

As for me, it is being worked on that we might (MIGHT) go back to California in a few weeks.  We'd be driving (the manic dog wouldn't take to flying and our families usually send us home with a bunch of crap), so it would take us a few days since we'd have to take the more southern route.  This isn't really a social visit, but I feel the need to go and see my grandmother and just......be there for my mom.  You don't know how hard it is to hear the stress in her voice and then hear how relieved she sounded when I said it was a possibility to come out there. :-\\

I'm also sort of angry with some of my family members for the way they are acting.  Eighteen years ago, the same thing happened when my grandfather was ill and dying.  I was young then and really had no voice to be heard.  That has changed this time around, and I'm not going to have all these f*cking people fighting over stupid crap.

Oh yeah, we woke up to this this morning:

That is because the (other) topic on these lines does not exist anymore, and all hopefully has been transfered to the now existring one.

I don't think the explanation was meant to be rude...it's simply a way of saying the intended link doesn't exist anymore. :)

Sometimes a smiley or two gets the point across.







Just received an e-mail from James's teacher.  He's getting into trouble in class for reading instead of doing his work.  I like the fact that he loves reading, it's a shame to take books off him but if he's actively ignoring the teachers and school work then we need to do something.

I'm so sorry about the news.  Please accept my thoughts and prayers as your sister goes through this.  I work with 3 (now 2) breast cancer survivors which obviously doesn't make me any kind of expert, but if there is anything I can find out for you, please let me know.

Patty, I'm sending my very best wishes to you in your stressed out state.  I hope you find a way to get through this.  I have to go along with those who recommend marriage counseling---preferably with your husband, but go alone if you must.  As was already mentioned, the counselor might be able to help you decide on your options and which one works best for you.  I hope, however, that your husband realizes the seriousness of the situation and agrees to go with you---and then not only goes, but actually contributes.  You can PM me anytime if you want to talk.  *hugs*

Today was a typically crazy Monday.  Plus we aren't getting the new scanner until tomorrow---imagine how THAT went over with a bunch of angry faculty.  I feel bad because Robin will be by herself tomorrow when it arrives and will have to do all the scanning and phones.  I am out of the office Tues-Thurs administering tests across town (7:30a-5:30p each day).  Not looking forward to what I'm going to come back to on Friday, then test again on Saturday, 7:30 til whenever.  Hopefully, the snow will stop so we can get our Christmas stuff out of the storage unit and get the apt decorated.

I swear I felt the ladder tilt and shake a couple times and I thought, I really should have somebody holding it steady.  I did try to come up with something so I would not have to redo it, but sadly I needed to do it right so I bit the bullet and now I need more pain relievers.

Sorry to hear about your sister, Danotta.  My prayers are with her.

Badfingerfan:  I can empathize, It seems like I'm on a daily ibuprophen or Aleve cocktail.  I'm 39, and it seems (especially at night) and now that I live somewhere that has LOTS of stairs, those medicines become all the more important to me.  Hope you feel better soon, my friend.

Well, let me tell you, it doesn't get any better.  And that putting up the lights backwards....mm hmm,  all part of the package.  Exercise used to be an option, now it is a life saving treatment.  ::)

My grandmother is on life support.  It is now not a question of IF she goes, but WHEN she goes.

And the fighting and bickering has already started....


My sympathes go out to you Jess.My Grandmother is 91 and she now resides in an assisted living home with lots of support,She just came from Florida on plane,She was living in Florida since 1979 till my Grandfather passed on in 1989 but after that my Uncle(s) took care of her because she has been suffering from Alzymer's but now she's in good spirits.

lol He sounds like I was as a kid.  I was a voracious reader, ALWAYS reading (even the back of the cereal box when nothing else was available.)  ;D


He gets it from me, I still read a lot.  However I don't recall getting into trouble at school for it.  I think it is because we only had tables so no storage space to hide a book.  James has agreed to put all his books in a box that is kept elsewhere in the classroom.  Then he can ask for a book when he has finished all his other work.


Thanks all for the support in my earlier comment.  One lesson learned by moi... Never have an argument with the spouse and then go online and post.   ;D  ;)  All is better, it is the stress of moving and settling in.  Relationship is solid, no bad arguments today.



Glad to hear things are settling down.  Moving is stressful.  Let's hope it was just a blip.

I got caught a couple of times with my book under my desk, one evil teacher gave me a weeks detention! She was a math teacher and I was reading a book, and I think it bothered her no end when I passed her algebra class with ease.  ;D

On a 'related' note (?)    :-X    ...












New York (CNN). At John F. Kennedy International Airport today, a Caucasian male (later discovered to be a high school mathematics teacher) was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a compass, a protractor and a graphical calculator.

According to law enforcement officials, he is believed to have ties to the Al-Gebra network. He will be charged with carrying weapons of math instruction.

Mike, my dad has had a machine for over a year now.  Didn't take long to get used to it and luckily the VA covers maintenance, etc. (he got it from them).  Micah had to have a sleep study to see if she needed a machine, but because she stopped breathing less than 30 times (I think that was the magic number), they say she doesn't need it.  She didn't care for the sleep study for a number of reasons--the camera trained on her, the tubes, the wires and most of all, she said the bed was more comfortable than anything she had ever slept on so of course she slept better.  ::)  I myself could have done without the whole having to pick her up at 5 a.m.  I hope your back feels better soon!  You know what they say..."Gettin old ain't for sissies"  ;) (well, maybe not everyone says that, but a famous actress did once upon a time)

Jess, I'm SOOO sorry to hear about your grandma.  I was really hoping things would turn around.  I hope your family stops the fighting and starts focusing on what is really important, namely your grandmother's time left with you all.

Cat, sorry to hear your tech problems have returned.  Hope you get them straightened out.

Gis, I hope things get better!

I'm bored out of my mind (yes, I have work to do but it seems like that is all I ever do from 8 a.m. til I go to bed).  I am at the Holiday Inn administering a 3 hr 45 min exam.  I will do it again this afternoon, 2 times tomorrow and 2 times on Thursday.  The good news is that if I could get myself focused (I have started a survey), I might get enough done that I won't have to work over the weekend (I'm testing Sat 7:30 to whenever) and can work on the apt (cleaning, decorating).  Only a little over an hour and a half left....I'm going to try and finish the survey (and maybe start another). Wish me luck as I feel completely unmotivated.  ::)

I hear ya. some days I feel much younger, but today I feel like I'm an elderly invalid  :-\\



Badfingerfan:  I can empathize, It seems like I'm on a daily ibuprophen or Aleve cocktail.  I'm 39, and it seems (especially at night) and now that I live somewhere that has LOTS of stairs, those medicines become all the more important to me.  Hope you feel better soon, my friend.

thanks Patty, todays drug of choice is Tylenol, it helped but only for a short while

thanks Amy. I have to have my machine re-calibrated. it really works good opening my nasal breathing passages, but exhaling is difficult because the incoming air pressure is a bit too strong. I just used a breath right nose strip. all 3 of us use those at times. as for my back, omg, it's killin' me but at least the Xmax lights are up  ;D



Mike back pain sucks.... been there done that for 7 years now.  Sometimes Aleve just isn't enough.

Aleve is definitely not enough. I haven't hurt my back in many years, been playing softball fine, but I have had at least 3-4 back injuries in the 80's 90's, bad enough to go out on disability, but this one is minor, just need a couple days to let it rest. now I wish I had my hot tub cleaned and ready. darn!

moving near your inlaws increases that stress tenfold.....

I'm thinking of you too Patty.... Like Erin said if you need to talk I am just a PM away




Funny that you mention that.  It is/has been rather...um... interesting living near hubby's family.  His uncle lives next door (and is renting us this house - still no official paperwork, so maybe we won't be renting to own afterall...  :-\\ ).  We try to look in on him every day or couple days.  He has a newish Pit Bull puppy (who is HUGE) (but he seems to like me and I'm not really a dog person) so I'm hoping he doesn't turn mean.  (The dog or the uncle  ;) )

Hubby's mom lives a block up the street and it's hit or miss whether they get along or not.  Monday at 5:30 a.m. she called and talked to my hubby for 3 1/2 hours (using up the alloted minutes for his phone this month but  :-X ) 

She wants someone from the family (namely my hubby, me, or hubby's cousin) to dress in a Santa costume to go through the neighborhood, ringing a bell and going up to random houses and visiting the children (and promising to come back (in theory) on Christmas Eve).  She doesn't want to hand out any little cheap gifts either.  Oh and she wants to take the Pit Bull, dress it up in an elf costume and take it around too.  She has a really good memory of when this was done for her (minus the pit bull dog I presume) as a child (in the 50s.)  Hubby and I both have repeatedly told her that while it's a sweet idea (her heart is in the right place), times have changed too drastically to do that anymore.  People are more private nowadays and also suspicious too.  Not to mention the whole dog thing which is in a book by itself.  ;D

She wants someone from the family (namely my hubby, me, or hubby's cousin) to dress in a Santa costume to go through the neighborhood, ringing a bell and going up to random houses and visiting the children (and promising to come back (in theory) on Christmas Eve).  She doesn't want to hand out any little cheap gifts either.  Oh and she wants to take the Pit Bull, dress it up in an elf costume and take it around too.   She has a really good memory of when this was done for her (minus the pit bull dog I presume) as a child (in the 50s.)  Hubby and I both have repeatedly told her that while it's a sweet idea (her heart is in the right place), times have changed too drastically to do that anymore.  People are more private nowadays and also suspicious too.  Not to mention the whole dog thing which is in a book by itself.   ;D



ugh sounds like its time to get mom a cell on the same plan as you guys... or you can let me refer you to vonage for 25 bucks a month...  ;)


Um yeah you're right... the times have changed... people will be suspicious of a door to door santa.  We live in a pedophilic nation now... plus take it from someone who had the second most unpopular breed on the planet... no matter what the dogs disposition is people will be afraid of the dog simply because its a pit bull... Carly was the sweetest dog on the planet with not one mean bone in her body. I used to joke that she'd let a burglar in the house just so long as he stopped and petted her first.  ;D  But people were terrified of her when I walked her in the park or on the street... man she just wanted love from everyone she saw and people were always trying to get way out of her way.  :-\\

Wait....What?  She lives a block up the street, but talked on the phone for 3 1/2 hours.  Next time, if he can't find a way to get her off the phone, tell him to put her on speaker, keep talking while he throws on some sweats and walks over.  This doesn't seem like it is going to be a good situation.  She has already stepped in and taken control in a very warped way.  If hubby finds it hard to say no to  a 3 1/2  hour telephone conversation with a mom just up the street he isn't going to be able to say no to much of anything else.

I get around these problems by using a choice of four different passwords.  It doesn't take long to work out which one I used.

I started as a stocker, then I became a department head I was in charge of the seasonal section  ::) then head cashier... and at some point I was in charge of the graveyard crew. 

they used to lock us in the store during the graveyard shift (that's when I learned the store was haunted)  and on our lunch breaks we would ride bikes through the store... or get out the remote control cars from the display cases and play with them Once we all put on roller skates and skated for an hour then put them back in the box... I was a bad manager  ;D  and once we played laser tag.

Anyway...my mom is going in for surgery tomorrow. In February 2004, she'd had her thyroid surgically removed...now there's something in that area that looks cancerous. So to make a long story short, she's gonna have that cancerous thingy removed tomorrow, so the rest of my family is praying that everything goes well. She'll only need to stay in the hospital one night, so she'll be home Friday.

My mom goes in for a heart catherization on Dec. 10, unfortunately my lil bro (who had one a couple years ago) told her it hurts like hell, (which I'm sure it does but still...) so now she's really really nervous about it.  Doc says that one of her valves could be blocked.  That doesn't sound good.

In other news, hubby proudly lost another 5 pounds this week (and I gained 4.5 pounds.)  *sigh*  Not that it is a competition or anything.  I did not tell him that I gained.  He would be concerned for me, but not pushy about that kind of thing. 

Kitten is starting to lose her kitten-y look.  She's growing up so fast!  My baby!  waaaaah!  She likes to try to beat us out the door, so that now we have to play guard so that one of us is there to catch her so she doesn't explore the neighborhood (full of dogs!!)  eek.

I hope your mum's procedure goes well and isn't too painful.

The thing about your hubby losing weight and you gaining it reminded me of a Kelly Monteith sketch from years ago.  He reckoned people just swapped weight around.  Maybe your kitten/cat gained the other half pound?  :)

Anyway, the secret is to treat each day as the start of a new year and make a resolution that today will be better.

thanks Q. I appreciate the thoughts.  I would like to retire on my terms, & not be forced to retire early. I like my job & it pays ok. if I got a layoff notice, there would be severance pay & I'm retirement eligible & could collect a monthly pension, but I'd still have to get another job that hopefully paid at least half as much as I'm getting now. that may be difficult in these trying times, but not impossible.  ???


you do the technical side right? You could always go to Verizon... they do the emergency phones in our call center and we always need a tech and the closest one is 4 hours away  ;D


I know its probably not the same thing but close enough maybe?

I do work the technical side, but I'm an inside testing tech, and I work with Verizon techs all the time. they buy a lot of our T1 circuits and sometimes they need me to help them test before they accept it from us.  so I could get a job with Verizon, rent a room from you, and send paycheck back home to Lady Di  ;D

this is the 3rd day I've been absent from work with my back. not to whine and cry, but it friggin hurts, but I can tell it's slowly getting better. I'm roasting a turkey in the oven and it's making the house smell good. with my bad back, it wasn't easy lifting up that bird. 
I saw the news about AT&T announcing the slashing of 12,000 jobs. hopefully I'm safe where I am & with what I do & the 25 years of seniority I have. the company has about 300,000 employees, so 12k across U.S. not sure how many in Calif will be included in that number.

Hope your back gets back to normal, and that your job remains solid and stable.  It is unfortunate that all of this is happening right around Christmas to soo many.

Did they ever find out what was wrong?
nope, there is no conclusive diagnosis yet. blood tests were done, she had an endoscopy, we still may have a CatScan done if it doesn't just go away on it's own. it seems to be a mystery illness and after talking to friends, they claim to know people that have had the same thing for months and it just went away on it's own. I don't like guesswork from the doctors when it comes to sickness/illness, but they don't know. they all seem to think it's more anxiety related, but I'm not sold on that idea completely, especially being somewhat personally experienced in that area.  but the good news is that she's starting to feel and sleep better and is getting her life back which was put on hold during the tough part of this. hopefully the worst is over.  thanks for asking karen.

At the time I posted this, I was wrong...my mom was still in surgery. I'd gotten a call from my dad @ 4:30 (Pacific time) and he said that the operation was still going on...and it was scheduled to be over with by 6pm. I wasn't sure how long the operation was supposed to take.


Also...this evening I did something for the first time ever: drive at night, by myself!


And when I got home (just after 6), I called my dad on his cell phone again and he said that everything went just fine with the surgery, and that my mom was in the recovery room with a nurse. So that's good to know.

So tomorrow afternoon, I believe, my mother will have a chance to come home.

So to your back........What has the doctor said? have you strained it?, pulled a muscle?, trapped a nerve?  As someone who has suffered chronic back pain you truely have my sympathies.
I must do a on soap box moment and tell you to get it checked out and to look after it properly! At the age of 25 I was told I had the back of someone in their 70's and if i didn't do something I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 50. So I am quite evangelical about telling people to take care of their backs!
Luckily I didn't need surgery and via Osteopathy, Physio and now the Alexander Technique the back is in good shape. 8) just wish the rest of me was.  ;D
Anyway best advise is to stay gently mobile and yeah lifting poultry is prbably not to be recommended!

Boyohboy, I've been there. It took me about a week before I could get really comfortable.  Let me tell you though, with doctors it is pills and see you later.  Finallly, after being hounded by some of the guys I work with, getting sick of the recurring pain, not being able to walk very far without the lower back stiffening up, and having a hard time getting in and out of the car, I saw a chiropractor.  I was a bit sceptical, but my life changed with the first visit.  I went a couple of time a week for a month, now I go once a month for a "tune up" .  Life is grand again.  ;)

Scary.  You will be in my thoughts and prayers.


I am going to the bank, picking up the child and we are going to the Festival of Trees.  It is a charity festival where people decorate trees and auction them off.  All the proceeds go the Primary Children's Hospital to help those who can't pay for care.  I can't afford to buy a tree, but will donate by paying the entrance fee.  I love seeing all the trees.

Fingers crossed that's the end of the redundancies at his place.

Dai works at a joint venture with a couple of other companies.  He said that yesterday the managers came round and just handed people working for one of the other companies a pink slip to say they'd been made redundant.  Eight went in his area.  The situation isn't much better at the UK company either.  :-\\

2nd night in a row that I've slept soundly (of course, double dosage of xanax helps)  but my back is slowly getting betterwhere I am not in excruciating pain all the time.


Very glad to hear that Mike!  :)

So to your back........What has the doctor said? have you strained it?, pulled a muscle?, trapped a nerve?  As someone who has suffered chronic back pain you truely have my sympathies.
I must do a on soap box moment and tell you to get it checked out and to look after it properly! At the age of 25 I was told I had the back of someone in their 70's and if i didn't do something I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 50. So I am quite evangelical about telling people to take care of their backs!
Luckily I didn't need surgery and via Osteopathy, Physio and now the Alexander Technique the back is in good shape. 8) just wish the rest of me was.  ;D
Anyway best advise is to stay gently mobile and yeah lifting poultry is prbably not to be recommended!      
thanks Gis, people that have had back problems can easily relate to the torment. I have not gone to see the doctor. I've hurt it several times in the past and it feels pretty much like one of those previous injuries, which I believe were pulled muscle/strain. I remember the doc telling me years ago I had probably torn only a couple muscle fibers and I did the therapy several times and it helped. I decided to wait and it's healing up/mending on its own as the body is supposed to do. I'm gonna look into that Alexander technique thing. I've been very immobile thes past 4 days but I had to cook that turkey  ::)


I know having a bad back sucks, I was put on Social Security Disability because of my back.Hopefully you will be well soon and back to work
With today's economy nobody can afford to lose their job.
thanks ninny. so you know as anyone with back injuries can attest, it's utter torture!  I've been out on disability and workmns comp at least 3-4 times in my 25 year career with present employer, the longest time out was 3 months, but I expect to go back next Tuesday as it is feeling better.



Mike...hope all goes well at
work for you.
thanks Peter. I called my friend at work yesterday and we talked about it, nobody knows much yet as to what groups will be affected by the force reduction so we'll keep praying and crossing body parts.  ::)


Becareful that you are not laid off due to your injury.

It sounds like my condition when mine started, is it the lower back?
thanks Philip, and it is my lower back which I've hurt several times before, but it's been almost ten years since my last injury.  as for work, I'm in the union and by contract they couldn't release me for that, but they will be laying off people soon and hopefully my team/group is still needed. we have been very busy and our group provides service specifically to the wireless sector which is the growing part of the company.


Boyohboy, I've been there. It took me about a week before I could get really comfortable.  Let me tell you though, with doctors it is pills and see you later.  Finallly, after being hounded by some of the guys I work with, getting sick of the recurring pain, not being able to walk very far without the lower back stiffening up, and having a hard time getting in and out of the car, I saw a chiropractor.  I was a bit sceptical, but my life changed with the first visit.  I went a couple of time a week for a month, now I go once a month for a "tune up" .  Life is grand again.   ;)
being there, you know full well the agony one goes thru, especially during the initial time, which I'm now past. I also am aware the doctors prescribe pills and i don't want any of that. the chiropractor sounds like something I'd like to check out.


My Christmas wish is that all my sick and suffering friends get better...and, to quote me, "I wish you love and luck and very little lower back pain."



so, is it time for me to begin virtual secret santa?  Is anyone up for it?  if so, i'll begin a new thread. ::)
yes!!! Virtual Secret Santa was fun last year, and I'm up for it if you have the time to do that again

By Tuesday the feeling of vertigo set in. Wednesday the feeling of vertigo was so bad that I left work and
went to the doctor. She told me I had fluid in my ear canal and that I had a bad sinus infection. She put me
on an antibiotic and a nasal spray and sent me home. Here it is Friday afternoon and I still feel like I'm standing
on a buoy in the ocean. Has anyone else ever experienced this? how long am I going to be on this buoy?

It might be Meniere's Disease...

Ménière's disease (pronounced /meɪnˈjɛərz/) is a disorder of the inner ear that can affect hearing and balance. It is characterized by episodes of dizziness and tinnitus and progressive hearing loss, usually in one ear. It is caused by an increase in volume and pressure of the endolymph of the inner ear. It is named after the French physician Prosper Ménière, who first reported that vertigo was caused by inner ear disorders in an article published in 1861.[2

Kevin. I'd go with the doc's on this one. it's probably what they think it is, and the fluid is casusing your equilibrium to be unbalanced or something. you'll probably just have to take your meds and ride it out and be careful if driving  :o  hang in there

My father had something similar and we looked up online and thought like Gibbo said it was Ménière's, but the doctors related it to his back problems he has a spinal disc hernia. He had to rest for a few days and it went away. Hope you'll feel better soon too, Kevin.

Inner ear infections take a couple of days to sort out.  You should be better by about now if you have taken the antibiotics as recommended.  Coupled with sinuses you must feel like your head is a balloon ready to pop!

ok, the oven beeped signaling me that the two 8in round cakes were ready to come out of the oven, but I needed Lady Di's expertise to check for me to see if they were done and they are, now to let them cool and then frost them with the chocolate frosting. dang, I'm gonna eat the whole thing with a big glass of milk if I keep lusting for it.  I better eat something else soon, so I'm not hungry while I frost it, or else I may not be able to restrain myself from attacking it. 


All I can say is Yum.....serve me  up  a piece, please.  :D

Making Christmas feast a bit early aren't you??? ??? /?????

First a turkey now a cake :) :) :)



Buy the way, you have made me hungry for turkey and now I need to go out and buy one and roast it ;D ;D ;D ;D
yes, you need to go out and get a bird and throw him/her in the oven. This one is the 2nd turkey I've cooked in the last 3 weeks, my first a week before Thanksgiving. I just can't wait for the holidays this year. as for the cake, I must have seen somebody on TV eating chocolate cake, not sure where that craving came from.    ???

so my back is better today, no agonizing pain, just discomfort and minor pain. I think I'll be up for Texas Hold Em tonight at our friends house & Lady Di is gonna play too. I sure would like to see her win. She's putting lights on the Christmas tree as we post, & it looks nice. so now I'm all showered, shampooed, and shaved, and am gonna kick back and enjoy my coffee.


I have some pork chops right from the butcher shop, I am going to stuff those babies and eat 'em up.  We can do a pot luck, everybody cook something, meet back here and chow down  ;D
if we all lived near enough, I'd be down for that. with all the good cooks we have here, we'd be feasting royally


Today is the opening day of shotgun season for Deer!!!  Otherwise known as a reason for my husband to dress in ungodly expensive garb, looking like leaves, and trees with a touch of blaze orange; and do the "manly" duty of providing his family for meat for the long winter ;) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

So it is a girls day at home (actually we are going to go get our hair and nails done ;D ;D ;D ;D)
shotgun?  :o  do they use deer slugs? they don't use buck shot do they?  so you folks enjoy fresh venison every year? how is that?

I think they are probably an accquired taste, but I love them.

Pierogies are like Ravioli, but no tomato sauce.  They can be fried with butter/oil and served with onions and sour cream.  (they have mashed potatoes in them, not usually meat, although there are different varieties.)

Pierogies:
http://www.pierogiesplus.com/graphics/frontpageanimation.gif

Haluski, a dish of fried noodles and sweet cabbage
http://cdn-write.demandstudios.com/upload//2000/000/70/0/12070.jpg

and Stuffed Cabbage is also sometimes called Cabbage Rolls.  It's kinda like Spanish Rice, although sometimes more meaty, rolled up in a cabbage leaf.  

Cabbage smells awful cooking, but sure is good when it's done.

Made myself hungry trying to explain it.  lol  Maybe this should go into the food message board.  ;)

Karma for the warning.


The staying power of a Eureka:

Fourteen years ago when my family moved to the house (that my parents currently occupy), the previous tenants had left behind this ugly assed, totally from the 70s (it was puke green and yellow) upright Eureka vacuum cleaner.  There was nothing wrong with it, besides being ugly, so my parents kept it.  The thing worked like a dream, usually only needing a new belt every few years and the bags (and my dad spliced an ugly assed orange extension cord on it, so it would reach all over the house).  The thing finally quit working a year ago.

So I say you got a good deal if they still make them to last.

Gis, I'm glad himself is still there and hope it stays that way.  I understand why he feels as he does, but it really isn't his fault

Mike, I'm glad J is feeling better, but completely understand your frustration.  I remember what I went through to get someone to take Micah's paralysis seriously instead of blowing it off as psychological (and I'm still p**sed at the psychiatrist/psychologist who dared suggest she has gender identity issues JUST because she played football while we site there wondering if she will ever walk again--remember at that time we still didn't know what was wrong or what caused it, so every possibility was going through our minds).  I hope they figure out what's going with her, but I hope she continues to feel better in the meantime.

Ok, is everybody sitting down?  I have some news and I don't want anyone falling over in a faint  ;).........I did not bring any work home to do over the weekend.  Yes, that's right.  I am taking the weekend off.  Micah has spent the weekend so far.  We went and got take out Chinese last night and vegged in front of the tv (she was asleep by 10).  Today I worked a test from 7:30 til noon.  After I got home, I cleaned the living room and kitchen--even cleaning out a closet so we can use it for coats instead of hanging them off chairs, then we went and got our Christmas decorations (took about 10 mins to decorate--small apt, not a lot of room or stuff).  Plugged in the fiberoptic tree and Micah just finished hanging her sports ornaments (footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, and tennis balls).  Tomorrow is laundry and cleaning my room and bathroom (won't take too long).  Would have done them today, but ran out of time since morning was spent testing.

No, I haven't bought my Christmas cards yet, but I will and I will get them out very soon.  We are going to the lake next weekend because my parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Friday.  I'm taking off work early and we are going to take them to Ludington for a special dinner.  I have already made reservations and spoken with the owner/manager about a "Happy Anniverary" sign, flowers and he is going to do a formal white tablecloth (we always sit in the bar area by the fireplace so usually no cloths) and candles.  He said he would do anything for them, which made me feel good.  I will clean their house on Saturday to prep for the holidays (my bro is coming home for Christmas, arriving on Micahs' b'day), but I should be able to do the cards as well.

Sorry this was so long, but I was pretty excited to have time to get these things done.  Thank you for letting me share!!!  :)

Bobby ? He hasn't been around for awhile, has he ?     ???

















Does ANYBODY know where Bobby is ?    ??? ???

Gis, I'm glad himself is still there and hope it stays that way.  I understand why he feels as he does, but it really isn't his fault

Mike, I'm glad J is feeling better, but completely understand your frustration.  I remember what I went through to get someone to take Micah's paralysis seriously instead of blowing it off as psychological (and I'm still p**sed at the psychiatrist/psychologist who dared suggest she has gender identity issues JUST because she played football while we site there wondering if she will ever walk again--remember at that time we still didn't know what was wrong or what caused it, so every possibility was going through our minds).  I hope they figure out what's going with her, but I hope she continues to feel better in the meantime.

Ok, is everybody sitting down?  I have some news and I don't want anyone falling over in a faint  ;).........I did not bring any work home to do over the weekend.  Yes, that's right.  I am taking the weekend off.  Micah has spent the weekend so far.  We went and got take out Chinese last night and vegged in front of the tv (she was asleep by 10).  Today I worked a test from 7:30 til noon.  After I got home, I cleaned the living room and kitchen--even cleaning out a closet so we can use it for coats instead of hanging them off chairs, then we went and got our Christmas decorations (took about 10 mins to decorate--small apt, not a lot of room or stuff).  Plugged in the fiberoptic tree and Micah just finished hanging her sports ornaments (footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, and tennis balls).  Tomorrow is laundry and cleaning my room and bathroom (won't take too long).  Would have done them today, but ran out of time since morning was spent testing.

No, I haven't bought my Christmas cards yet, but I will and I will get them out very soon.  We are going to the lake next weekend because my parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Friday.  I'm taking off work early and we are going to take them to Ludington for a special dinner.  I have already made reservations and spoken with the owner/manager about a "Happy Anniverary" sign, flowers and he is going to do a formal white tablecloth (we always sit in the bar area by the fireplace so usually no cloths) and candles.  He said he would do anything for them, which made me feel good.  I will clean their house on Saturday to prep for the holidays (my bro is coming home for Christmas, arriving on Micahs' b'day), but I should be able to do the cards as well.

Sorry this was so long, but I was pretty excited to have time to get these things done.  Thank you for letting me share!!!  :)

Went to Sears to buy vacuum belts, ended up with a new vacuum.  I really need to stay out of stores.  I was good, though.  I bought the $54 one instead of my dream vacuum which was over $400.

At least you won't have this after effect:

The story of how your husband and neighbor carried you across the street, naked, when they too were drunk and how they dropped your underclothes in the middle of the street and bruised your body by banging it against doors and walls and the bed.  And no, it wasn't me!  (It might have been winter, too, but that I couldn't swear to)

Believe me, I know the feeling about the importance of being there.  We're leaving on Saturday and driving to California.  The memorial/wake is on the 20th since my grandmother was cremated. :(

Which leads me to this question, and maybe Babooshka can help me on this.  I'm cleaning the house right now, listening to music, and Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work" comes on.  Now I know it is told from a male point of view about his wife being in labor, but the lyrics just struck me as something that I would want to play at the memorial for my grandmother.  If you're unfamiliar with the song, these are the lyrics:

Pray God you can cope.
I stand outside this woman's work,
This woman's world.
Ooh, it's hard on the man,
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the father.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

Of all the things I should've said,
That I never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things I should've given,
But I didn't.

Oh, darling, make it go,
Make it go away.

Give me these moments back.
Give them back to me.
Give me that little kiss.
Give me your hand.

(I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.)

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

Of all the things we should've said,
That were never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things that you needed from me.
All the things that you wanted for me.
All the things that I should've given,
But I didn't.

Oh, darling, make it go away.
Just make it go away now.


You tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hm901CXujEg

I dunno...it's just seems to....FIT.  My grandmother had seen more than her share of work through her life, and not just in giving birth, but in the hardships she suffered when she was younger.  I figured the lyrics about the "craft of the father" could refer to her Christianity and that she's now dead and with the higher power (even though that wasn't the intent of Kate Bush).  Then of course, the chorus really got to me.  It is just a beautiful song and makes me bawl, but I don't know about the whole male point of view spin on it.  Anyone want to help me on this?

Okay, break is over.  Need to go clean some more since I booted Rice and the boy out to do just that.

My advice, if you feel that you should play it-than do. There wasn't a service for either my grandmother nor my sister-so it has been on each of us to say good-bye in our way. Can't say that is good or bad-just the way it is. When I lost my grandmother this past Feb. this was the song that "FIT" for me.

She's doing ok. Since it has only been a few days since her operation, she can't do too much strenuous activity, or do too much running around. So just my dad and I went to church this morning, and then to the Green Thumb Nursery in Ventura to see about getting a Christmas tree. We found a really good one, paid for it, and brought it home.

             Sorry, you can't repeat a karma action without waiting 24 hours.

Here's a karma to make you feel better. :)
karma from Howard is highly prized  8)



Mike, I'm glad J is feeling better, but completely understand your frustration.  I remember what I went through to get someone to take Micah's paralysis seriously instead of blowing it off as psychological (and I'm still p**sed at the psychiatrist/psychologist who dared suggest she has gender identity issues JUST because she played football while we site there wondering if she will ever walk again--remember at that time we still didn't know what was wrong or what caused it, so every possibility was going through our minds).  I hope they figure out what's going with her, but I hope she continues to feel better in the meantime.
good for you taking a weekend off. you deserve it! thanks a bunch Amy for understanding Julie's situation. it is frustrating, as you know but we're doing all we can and she's almost back in the swing of things.  as for the Psych's eff'd up analysis of Micah, I'd be pissss'd too. it sounds like that person has their own issues  >:(  anyways, I hope your parents anniversary is a smash


...this evening I met Ken Mansfield  http://www.fabwhitebook.com/art/sm_mansfield.jpg  http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0S020k9oTxJ8yEB9HijzbkF/SIG=12sn574sk/EXP=1228796605/**http%3A//www.canadianchristianity.com/bc/bccn/1001/graphics/mansfield.jpeg
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Mansfield
He was the US manager for APPLE Records and record producer for Capitol Records for The Beatles and many other famous musicians/bands. Hhis story is amazing. He was at my church sharing his life story and his conversion to Christianity. There was a Q&A after he told his story, & I asked him what his favorite album was and it's Abbey Road, he said because it's a beautiful album and that because he was there in 1968 when The Beatles established Apple. plus he said he was there when they signed BADFINGER to the Apple label.
here's an excerpt from an interview:
Ken Mansfield: In 1968 when they decided to set up Apple Records, America was the market.  You had to have America, and I was the only executive they knew. They sent for me. We set up Apple Records, and I came back and ran it for them in America.

Ross : Ken Mansfield was in the right place at the right time -- at least that’s how he sees it.  Propelled into the center of "Beatlemania", Ken was the man in the U.S. for the Beatles’ Apple Record label

I did find a few possible listings that I could send my resume to, so I sent out two copies of my resume. I've found that if I don't necessarily meet all the qualifications exactly as printed, I can at least send in my resume and see what kind of positions the company does offer, that are close to what I can do.

If you meet 80-90% of the criteria you should put in your resume.  Perhaps consider editing it to suit the company, emphasise how you do meet their requirements - particularly those near the top of the list- and how other things you have done are relevant to the work even if they are not an exact match.

Good luck with the job hunting.

Typical Monday at work, meeting ran late and there is a snow storm on the way.  Ran to Wal-Mart to run errands (again), lost a glove (one of my favorites)  :( and came home to find a Christmas card in my mailbox---from my ex-boyfriend's sister!  I was so touched that she sent a card again this year (she did last year, which was surprising since her brother had dumped me Jan 07 or thereabouts).  She is a very lovely person and I miss her very much.

Amy it sure seems like you are always on the go  :D 
as for the "psych" ......with both of us having teen daughters, we kinda see things the same way concerning them and we're protective parents  ;)
J's feeling tired as she went back to her winter break job at the golf shop and was on her feet all day. but that's good that she is getting out again, and will help her re-adjust back into school when the next semester begins after the holidays.  I am still feeling kinda "high" from meeting someone I did not know that was connected to the Beatles & Badfinger, I'm glad I got to meet him and learn about him and more about the bands that I love.
this evening I went to another softball banquet with my other team. They had a huge fried chicken feast and gave us our Championship shirts from the Spring league we had won this year. I just got done loading the washer with some laundry and then I put all the stamps on my inthe00s Christmas cards so I can mail them out tomorrow, and tea is brewing.

Ewwww, a bit young to use them though.  Of course way back when I was young most mothers wouldn't let their unmarried daughters use them because if they did they "wouldn't be virgins anymore"  Hard to believe, but true.  Anyway, most of my friends wouldn't let their daughters use them for the first year, anyway.

Ewwww, a bit young to use them though.  Of course way back when I was young most mothers wouldn't let their unmarried daughters use them because if they did they "wouldn't be virgins anymore"  Hard to believe, but true.  Anyway, most of my friends wouldn't let their daughters use them for the first year, anyway.


She doesn't need them yet so the question is a non-issue.  I know what you mean about the reason why teens aren't encouraged to use them, that thought is still around.   :-\\

He said my foot should not still hurt or be so tender to touch.  He wants the MRI to rule out hairline fracture and torn ligaments.  He can't explain why it cracks or why it hurts so much when it cracks.

On the up side, went to Wal-Mart to get the pain med he called in (only have to take 1x/day) and decided to stop at Customer Svc about my glove....someone found it and turned it in!!  :)  So happy.

We got almost a foot of snow today.  I was out at 7:00a shoveling my car out (it was only about 4 inches then).  Got home from Wal-Mart, etc. to find out driveway hadn't been plowed.  Called landlord who said guy was supposed to do it at 3 then 6 (I called at 6:20).  I just went to look and it looks like he might have come so I'm gonna go move my car.  I was wrong, just went out and made new path to see that he hasn't been here.  Called landlord who said he just left message.  I told him to let me know cuz I can't keep car on street and it's gonna take a couple hours to do by hand since the plow went through the alley and blocked us in.  Oh, and I measured....there's about 13 or so inches.

Snow?    8-P   I don't know how you people do it!




Thanks, Q.  We do it because someone has to live here! (And since my brother got out before I did, it's me lol)  Oh, and that estimated 13 inches.  Took the yardstick out--more like 18 and snow to continue til around midnight.  Yuck.



I hope your foot gets better very soon, statsqueen.

Thank you very much!  Oh, to all those who gave their suggestions for lotions that work on cracked, dry skin--thank you.  I get that every winter and will try the recommendations.  :)

Ewwww, a bit young to use them though.  Of course way back when I was young most mothers wouldn't let their unmarried daughters use them because if they did they "wouldn't be virgins anymore"  Hard to believe, but true.  Anyway, most of my friends wouldn't let their daughters use them for the first year, anyway.

Just one more vent about the plow guy and I'll leave it alone.

The guy came (the 2nd one called), but whether it was because my neighbor didn't move his vehicle or the guy is just dumb (I tend to blame the neighbor for not moving b/c he is in the middle spot), he plowed the snow INTO MY PARKING SPOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  >:(  Really??? Who does that??  Now there isn't 18 inches, there is approximately 2-3 feet of heavy, dirty snow where I am supposed to put my car.  Needless to say there was NO way I was going to try to shovel that by hand, so I called the landlord and left a message expressing my displeasure (can't imagine why he didn't want to pick up my phone call  ::) ) then called Micah, drove over to her dorm, she drove me back and she'll get up and pick me up for work in the morning.  I'm deducting some money (probably only $5) from my next rent check for gas/wear & tear/inconvenience.  Tomorrow if it isn't better, I will call landlord and tell him to call people who live across the street that my Dodge will be parked over there til I can get in my spot.

Thank you for allowing me this time to get that off my chest.  We now continue with our regularly scheduled posting.......

Guess who went to the doctor today and is schedule for an MRI tomorrow  ::)

He said my foot should not still hurt or be so tender to touch.  He wants the MRI to rule out hairline fracture and torn ligaments.  He can't explain why it cracks or why it hurts so much when it cracks.

On the up side, went to Wal-Mart to get the pain med he called in (only have to take 1x/day) and decided to stop at Customer Svc about my glove....someone found it and turned it in!!  :)  So happy.

We got almost a foot of snow today.  I was out at 7:00a shoveling my car out (it was only about 4 inches then).  Got home from Wal-Mart, etc. to find out driveway hadn't been plowed.  Called landlord who said guy was supposed to do it at 3 then 6 (I called at 6:20).  I just went to look and it looks like he might have come so I'm gonna go move my car.  I was wrong, just went out and made new path to see that he hasn't been here.  Called landlord who said he just left message.  I told him to let me know cuz I can't keep car on street and it's gonna take a couple hours to do by hand since the plow went through the alley and blocked us in.  Oh, and I measured....there's about 13 or so inches.
Fingers crossed it all goes well and they sort your poor foot out.

Feeling very tired at the moment.  Need to go to bed earlier this evening I think.

This morning I went into school to help with copying/preparing things for the teachers.  The copier was playing up so we put one big job off till next week.

Afterwards I went to Curves gym for a workout.  Then I went shopping for the secret santa gift.

Met Dai for lunch.  We went to a bagel place.  The food was alright but the experience wasn't.  We waited for ages whilst they made the sandwiches (and chatted with each other, told jokes and sang some songs) and then ended up sitting at the next table to a manager interviewing various staff about discrepancies in the till roll.  ::)

Although it hurts you need to gently warm the muscles up with a walk or something and then stretch them out slowly.  It really does help the pain.

Surely some of it is down hill?  :)

I know what you mean though.  It isn't mountainous where I live but the usual walk is down hill at first and then returning on the same route up hill.  I wish we could go the other way but there is no pavement (sidealk) in the other direction.

that's why only most of it is uphill  ;)   I live at the bottom of the hill so I have to start the walk up hill... By the time I get halfway up I feel exhausted. when I make the whole walk (its a mile full circle) I feel great on the way back because that last .5 miles is easy- its all down hill...I totally feel like Ican go again but when I start off up hill it always feels impossible to make it all the way.  I think it I started the opposite I'd feel better because down hill is easy and even if up hill is daunting it's a requirement in order to make it home  ;D

My mom's heart catherisation went well today.  I actually beat her to the hospital by about a half hour. lol 

It turns out that one of her arteries in nearly blocked and a vein valve is not working as it should, so surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday to replace the valve and do whatever it is they do to arteries.  She was so very upset when she first got the news, but after the surgeon came to talk to her (while the family was in the waiting room!  I would have liked to hear what the surgeon had to say, but whatever...) She seemed to calm down alot.  I kept telling her that with the new valve, she will be feel better (I assume).

They let her come home today and both my dad and brother are there to take care of her.  It was actually nice to see my dad concerned about her.  They usually snipe at each other so much that I think it's some form of entertainment to them.    ::)

I came home and I slept the rest of the day.  I hate when I do that, now I am awake and everybody else is getting ready for bed.   ;D

when my dad went through it he said he felt beeter... The only thing is they had him on some medicine (sorry don't know the name of it) and his personality changed quick... he was angry all the time so if that happens talk to the dr they can change it.

OMG Ash!!
I'm sorry but I laughed.
Then I read it to The Son and he laughed!
Please forgive me! ;) ;D

My daughter phoned home from the nurses office.  She had a bit of tummy ache this morning.  I gave her some pain killers but the ache came back after lunch.  I've been to school to fetch her so no more present wrapping for me until after she's gone to bed!


Oy Karen.
I hope she starts to feel better soon! ;)

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to finish the final paper for my online class; I spent most of today (Wednesday) trying to obtain information from my various sources. I was busy today (hence my break from the board...and possibly tomorrow) doing that, and trying to stay focused. It's just that everytime I have a big paper to write, it's always a struggle for me to get it started, cuz I just wanna do a good job on it. The only other time I had to write an 8 to 10 page paper was three years ago, when I did a report on the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. This time I'm doing a paper on how mathematics is related to various card games.


I managed to make some progress today, but not as much as I'd hoped. :-\\

I should go and check our basement.  We have two streams running through the woods next to our garden.

We missed the school bus this morning and I drove the kids to school.  We had to take a detour because the road was flooded.  Luckily I remembered in time not to take the route that went over the same stream further along.

It's coffee morning round a friends this morning.  I am supposed to be baking mince pies but I'm here instead.  ::)

He said my foot should not still hurt or be so tender to touch.  He wants the MRI to rule out hairline fracture and torn ligaments.  He can't explain why it cracks or why it hurts so much when it cracks.

bummer Amy, I'm a bit late in replying to your aches & pains but I still care that your foot heals up properly

lol Thanks!

Today is bittersweet.  Bitter because 2 yrs ago my parents got a phone call that my dad's best friend passed away (heart attack, I think).  Sweet because my parents celebrate their 50th anniversary today (also they got me 41 years ago, 9th anniv. present).  I took off work early, we came over bearing roses (not red, but I forgot the name of the color, it's very unique).  I treated them to dinner at their favorite restaurant in Ludington.  Had talked to the manager/owner who had red roses and red carnations on the table with a candle and white tablecloth (which is noteworthy b/c we always sit in the bar by the fireplace b/c more casual).  We had a marvelous dinner and even had a small chocolate cake.  Chip, the owner/mgr who helped me organize, came over to the table a couple times to chat, which was really nice.  My mom was really surprised and they both were very appreciative of what we pulled together.  It really was a lovely dinner and it was such a great feeling to be able to do something special for them for a change.  You know I may have to work horrible hours with the extra testing every now and then, but it is so worth it when I can do something for Micah or my parents.

Statsqueen, Dagwood, Badfinger, holy hell, we're all falling apart!  Karma all around and good thoughts for the new year!
this is a good place to share our ups and downs and we're all so good at caring & picking each other up. it's a beautiful thing    :)
thanks for the thoughts ladybug


lol Thanks!

Today is bittersweet.  Bitter because 2 yrs ago my parents got a phone call that my dad's best friend passed away (heart attack, I think).  Sweet because my parents celebrate their 50th anniversary today (also they got me 41 years ago, 9th anniv. present).  I took off work early, we came over bearing roses (not red, but I forgot the name of the color, it's very unique).  I treated them to dinner at their favorite restaurant in Ludington.  Had talked to the manager/owner who had red roses and red carnations on the table with a candle and white tablecloth (which is noteworthy b/c we always sit in the bar by the fireplace b/c more casual).  We had a marvelous dinner and even had a small chocolate cake.  Chip, the owner/mgr who helped me organize, came over to the table a couple times to chat, which was really nice.  My mom was really surprised and they both were very appreciative of what we pulled together.  It really was a lovely dinner and it was such a great feeling to be able to do something special for them for a change.  You know I may have to work horrible hours with the extra testing every now and then, but it is so worth it when I can do something for Micah or my parents.
bittersweet news indeed, losing their friend on their special day. the anniversary dinner sounds like it went really well. nice job Amy

Chihuahuas wouldn't last very long in the cold :(


We saved him and his sister today.  He looks more like a terrier than a chihuahua.  The lady insisted he was a mix, though.  He looks like he will be as big as ratdog.  Adorable little thing, but he gets carsick.  Yeah, that was a happy moment. ;D 

He took to my friend's son, it was cute.  And, he will be inside instead of stuck outside. YAY

so do you guys have to bail water manually in addtion to pumping it out?  how deep does it get in the basement? 




I don't have to bail water, but there are many who do.  The big problem in the area is the ice.  It has brought down lots of trees and branchs, cutting powerlines.  By trees I mean some that are 100ft tall.  It get worse because duing the day it starts to melt, then it freezes over at night. It isn't bad where I am, but people who are 20 miles inland are having a huge problem, state of emergency declared, no power until Monday.

Not sure if you can buy it here but I recommend Hedrin.  It's a silicone based product that kills the wee beasties by blocking their breathing tubes.  And it makes the hair slippery so they comb out easily.

Elizabeth kept getting head lice (or I didn't get the buggers first time round) but I used this once and they went away completely.

I used to use tea tree shampoo in England.

At school here they have lockers but share them between two or three.  When someone got lice in James's class last year they had to bring coats and hats into the classrom!

living in California, I can only imagine the ice storm problems. take care and hopefully those inland will get power soon. I wonder if they have phone service? anyways, stay dry and warm as possible.

thanks.  Diane's spent most of the day there at the hospital with her friend, who stayed all night with her father. Lady Di is gonna go back and see Rusty later today.
I have a few errands to run at the store & post office, mailing out a couple more Christmas cards. my back is better, I still have a  limited range of motion, but it's getting better and Julie is doing better with her months long ailment. she got her hair done really cute yesterday, and is back at work, so she's definitely on the mend. rhanks for all the prayers & concern.  :)

Well, Sig came over and helped me with the water in the basement situation.  It only happens when we have these torrential downpours, about once a year or so.  I didn't realize how bad it was in other areas, though.  There are 1 1/2 million households and business' without power. Since we are near the coast we weren't hit with it, but west and north of here it is pretty bad.

www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5h7HuK533b9co76hnCd_M8dvP2cHgD951FL0O0



I heard about this and wondered about you, Max, & Chucky. When I saw you on-line last night, I knew you still had power. I also didn't realize how bad it was around here. Some people in Rutland (only about 15-20 miles from here) lost power.


As for me, so far today I have done two loads of laundry (the last one is in the dryer), went out and shoveled snow, & wrapped gifts (including my secret Santa gift). I still need to work on my cards (determine to have them ALL out on Monday), and I need to order checks.

I have decided NOT to write THE letter this year (and Carlos has said several times within the last week-"DON'T write it"). I tried but I really don't want to depress everyone. There is one woman who I really do need to write a letter to. I will try to write her in Jan. when things aren't so...well, you know.


To all of you who are hurting, worried about a loved one, and all that nasty stuff (Badfinger Fan, statsqueen, Dagwood, and anyone else I had missed,) you are all in my thoughts.

Last night Dai and I went to his company's Christmas Holiday dinner.  This year the company is celebrating 25 years so the theme was "back to the 80s"  8). 

We started in the bar and wandered around chatting to various friends.  Then we had a formal photo taken as a couple (which I might be able to scan in and post).  Then we had to go to the ballroom for the meal.

They had several 80s icon 'look-a-likes' to greet us and have photos with.  We easily identified Prince, Michael Jackson and Madonna but couldn't work out who the fourth person was supposed to be.  Dai thought it was Brian May (guitarist with Queen) and I thought it was Pete Burns (singer with Dead Or Alive).  It turns out it was supposed to be Cher!

During the dinner the look-a-likes came in to sing to us.  They were very good (then we realised that 'Cher' was lipsynching :-\\ ).

The only downside to the evening was that dinner took so long to be served that we had to leave not long after dessert to get back to the babysitter.

This morning I woke with a headache (not a hangover though - the pain but none of the fun).  Dai has taken the children skiing all day so I'm hanging about here for a while and then I need to finish writing my cards and wrapping my presents.

So far this month has been a mixed bag. Last week I began to lose interest in my current Key Worker Linda, possibly due to a new member of staff joining my unit last month. That new staff member is called Amy and she's a lovely and rather giggly lady. She took me to the cinema to see 'Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa' and we both enjoyed it, but I didn't find it as good as the first film. Linda was telling me about a couple of changes that I wasn't very happy about (a new knives safety policy and the fact that residents will no longer be able to buy their own meals on a pub night unless their timetable says 'Dinner Out.'). Last Thursday and Friday I was feeling down about the things Linda was saying. I was even too upset to go to the pub with her last week.

Saturday wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be because Linda was only working at my house until 4pm, so I got to enjoy some time with Amy until the end of her shift. I also cleaned my bedroom that day and I was supposed to do it in the morning but when Linda told me that she'd be checking my bedroom, I decided not to clean it until the afternoon because I was worried about her making negative comments aboput cleanliness and tidiness. In September, Linda told me that room wasn't clean or tidy and it upset me so much that I bit myself, hit my bedroom door in frustration and refused to go to Spinning Class. I hope I'll get a new Key Worker in the New Year.

Make that your new years resolution.  Think of something you like to do and find a course or a club to join.  What about taking up bowling again?


Stompgal, sorry to hear things haven't been going so well for you at the moment.  Amy sounds rather nice.  Don't blame Linda for the new rules - she just has to tell you about them but may not have had anything to do with writing them.  Perhaps the rule about eating out only if it is your turn is to help people's budgets (if you buy your own food you might have to throw food out) or to help their catering (knowing how many will be in for a particular meal).

Luckily I jumped back otherwise I would have been covered in it but it did go in and on one of my lovely suede and fur boots. He just mumbled 'sorry about that' and wondered off!

Hey all. Seems like it's been a while. I'm staying sane, more or less. The things that were making me want to punch the wall and eat parts of my kitchen in anger are pretty much settled for the better.

I'm really enjoying this pre-Christmas thing much more than I ever have been within the last six years. Not quite sure why, maybe it's just that everything is settled exactly where it should be for the first time since I replaced my broken brain with one that actually works for a change.

Very Cool! I just caught the start of a Sherlock Holmes film called 'Hands of a murderer' and it was the scenes they shot outside the library!
They set up a huge scaffold to 'hang' 3 villains. We were ringing across to the reading rooms every few minutes going 'have the hung anyone yet?'  Finally we get a phone call 'quick, quick they're hanging people' so we all shot across the road and lined up in the windows to watch. Next we get a furious producer bawling at us for ruining the shot because of course we were all in modern clothes.  ;D

I just IMDB'd it and am horrified to see it was filmed in 1990  :-\\ now I feel old!

Nally, great job, sounds like a lot of progress.

Danoota, that is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!  Congrats to your son.

Q, glad you were able to get some sleep.  Sorry about missing your show.  How was your day?

Philip, I hope you feel better very soon!

Al-B, congrats on the car.  I know what you mean about too cold.  The public school kids had another snow day due to the flash freeze last night/this morning.  It dropped 40 degrees overnight.


Just heard from dr's office.  Have a possible fracture and torn ligament.  Not the best news, but not the worst I guess.  Hopefully this means someone can do something to fix my foot and get me back on the track.  At least we have Christmas break coming up next week, but I had a lot of plans that require driving (it's my right foot), so we'll see what they say.  I have to wait to hear from the referral people hopefully tomorrow as to what orthopedist they are sending me to and how soon I can get in.

In better news, I have gotten my paychecks from all the testing companies for the testing I did in Oct, Nov & Dec (that was the big one) EXCEPT from the company that handles the PCAT which was the first test I did.  I am so happy that after all this time I can afford to buy my family nice presents without asking parents for help AND have money to put away for the upcoming months (I'm done teaching, so my paycheck will take a hit after this month).  I can also get the car door fixed!

In weather news, we are under another winter weather advisory.  Have I mentioned I hate Michigan winters?  ::)

Anyway, we got something out here in Vegas that we rarely ever see (maybe once every five years or so) - SNOW!!!! I live in the West side of town (the central and east sides mostly got rain) and out here I think we got several inches of snow total (after 5 P.M.-ish). Any snow out here is pretty exciting to me. I took this pic on my cell phone around 11:00 A.M. this morning and it already came down pretty good!

Karma to you.

I am just getting back to normal from a Lisfranc fracture in my foot (June 16, 2007) it has been a long hall, 2 surgeries and 4 pins (2 permanant) and possibly getting my foot fused to ease off the arthritis.  Albeit my foot fracture was quite severe (1 bone the size of quarter in 26 pieces and torn all apart), I know of a few more that have had some other foot injuries and the key is time.  Lot's of pressure, movement, etc...

Good luck to you with all

My relief showed up at that point and when I got home I found that the last channel I had programmed my DVR to tune to CBS during for the start of 60 minutes... its not something I normally do... don't know why I did it that day... but on the bright side when I got home I turned on my TV and saw that it was on CBS. I hit rewind, walked away so I didn't see any spoilers and then when I came back it stopped rewinding about 10 minutes earlier than the point I'd left off...so I didn't miss a thing!  8)

Karma to you.

I am just getting back to normal from a Lisfranc fracture in my foot (June 16, 2007) it has been a long hall, 2 surgeries and 4 pins (2 permanant) and possibly getting my foot fused to ease off the arthritis.  Albeit my foot fracture was quite severe (1 bone the size of quarter in 26 pieces and torn all apart), I know of a few more that have had some other foot injuries and the key is time.  Lot's of pressure, movement, etc...

Good luck to you with all



Oh my!  Yours is DEFINITELY, no questions asked MUCH more severe than anything I am going through!!!!  I'm so sorry you've had to go through so much pain...and the pain of your recovery.  Karma+1 to you!!!

Here we go again....

My son has flu and is off work, and guess what he has given it to me!
oh no, not the flu again.  well, you better have some hot soup and more tea.


I FINALLY GOT MY CAR BACK!!! Yaaaaaaaaay!!!

excellent news AL-B


My son, who has autism, has just been given the position of "manager" on the boys basketball team.  We had to work out a bit of a deal, the coach is a great guy, used to let him go unofficially to practice.  Now it will be official and he will be able to travel on the team bus, and go to the games.  :) :) He is so excited has been watching Coach Carter over and over and overandoverandoverandoverandover......
that is so cool. I'm glad for your son getting to be a part of the team. Coach Carter from Richmond High School in California, I lived in Richmond for many years. it's not an easy town for some kids, but true life stories like these give people hope.



Just heard from dr's office.  Have a possible fracture and torn ligament.  Not the best news, but not the worst I guess.  Hopefully this means someone can do something to fix my foot and get me back on the track.  At least we have Christmas break coming up next week, but I had a lot of plans that require driving (it's my right foot), so we'll see what they say.  I have to wait to hear from the referral people hopefully tomorrow as to what orthopedist they are sending me to and how soon I can get in.

In better news, I have gotten my paychecks from all the testing companies for the testing I did in Oct, Nov & Dec (that was the big one) EXCEPT from the company that handles the PCAT which was the first test I did.  I am so happy that after all this time I can afford to buy my family nice presents without asking parents for help AND have money to put away for the upcoming months (I'm done teaching, so my paycheck will take a hit after this month).  I can also get the car door fixed!

In weather news, we are under another winter weather advisory.  Have I mentioned I hate Michigan winters?  ::)
not so good news about your foot Amy, but superb news about paychecks $$



Anyway, we got something out here in Vegas that we rarely ever see (maybe once every five years or so) - SNOW!!!! I live in the West side of town (the central and east sides mostly got rain) and out here I think we got several inches of snow total (after 5 P.M.-ish). Any snow out here is pretty exciting to me. I took this pic on my cell phone around 11:00 A.M. this morning and it already came down pretty good!

I borrowed a bag to give to my friend and said I'd go to the store to replace it.

There is no need to apologize to anyone.  Take care of you and the kids.  I feel for you!  For what it's worth, I did the same things you are doing and followed the same guidelines.  My head never itched before, but as soon as someone mentioned the word "lice", my head started itching like a fiend.  Micah's hair, when left to its own devices, strongly resembles a afro mop.  I've still gotta get that pic scanned.....

When Sarah came home with lice, it was awful.  I ended up shaving the bottom, back layer of her hair because the buggers wouldn't go away.  She was fine with it, I cried.  The 'l' word makes me itch, too.

Mom's heart surgery went well, although it lasted a hella lot longer then they originally planned.

We all got there at 5 a.m. yesterday (for she was supposed to get into surgery at 7:30), hours passed and finally at 10:30 she was wheeled into surgery.  She had to be put on a heart/lung bypass machine so the setting up of all of that took another hour (we got reports in the family room), and finally by 1:15 p.m., we got word that the valve was replaced and she had to have one bypass.  Thankfully this all took place before she had any severe problems such as a heart attack, although she did have a heart murmur... but anyways, to make a long story short (too late), she survived the surgery.  As it turns out, the hospital she went to is rated one of the top ten in the country for heart surgeries so luck was on our side.

My dad is being stubborn, I would really like to see her go to a rehabilitative care facility after she is discharged from the hospital (in about a week or so), but he says no, he wants her home.  Their home is filthy and even though I volunteered to take care of her, I am no nurse.  I'm very worried about an infection happening (and I've explained this to dad) but he is stubborn as hell. 

Another good thing that happened is that I think he finally realized how important mom is to him.  He was trying to hide the tears in his eyes and trying for the tough guy approach.  Gosh they bicker all the time (although not since she's been sick/during these procedures).  He effuses profusely about the women he works with but complains to me about mom in the same conversation.)  I'm not sure why he doesn't understand that in order to have a happy life, let's just say you attract more flies with honey then vinegar.)  If he didn't make fun of mom or antagonize her so much, I think things would be alot smoother.  But I guess that's regardless of the present health situations.

I'm sorry this post turned into a novel.  I know I'll probably lose some of you mid-post.  ;)  ;D

I guess I'm just posting to blow off steam.  I may not be online in awhile since my plan is to move back down there to help with her care, and they don't have internet.  I will try to check in on occasion, but it's not my top priority. lol

I WILL still do my secret virtual santa gifts though when called for.  I'm still trying to think of what to get for the person.

Mom's heart surgery went well, although it lasted a hella lot longer then they originally planned.

We all got there at 5 a.m. yesterday (for she was supposed to get into surgery at 7:30), hours passed and finally at 10:30 she was wheeled into surgery.  She had to be put on a heart/lung bypass machine so the setting up of all of that took another hour (we got reports in the family room), and finally by 1:15 p.m., we got word that the valve was replaced and she had to have one bypass.  Thankfully this all took place before she had any severe problems such as a heart attack, although she did have a heart murmur... but anyways, to make a long story short (too late), she survived the surgery.  As it turns out, the hospital she went to is rated one of the top ten in the country for heart surgeries so luck was on our side.

My dad is being stubborn, I would really like to see her go to a rehabilitative care facility after she is discharged from the hospital (in about a week or so), but he says no, he wants her home.  Their home is filthy and even though I volunteered to take care of her, I am no nurse.  I'm very worried about an infection happening (and I've explained this to dad) but he is stubborn as hell. 

Another good thing that happened is that I think he finally realized how important mom is to him.  He was trying to hide the tears in his eyes and trying for the tough guy approach.  Gosh they bicker all the time (although not since she's been sick/during these procedures).  He effuses profusely about the women he works with but complains to me about mom in the same conversation.)  I'm not sure why he doesn't understand that in order to have a happy life, let's just say you attract more flies with honey then vinegar.)  If he didn't make fun of mom or antagonize her so much, I think things would be alot smoother.  But I guess that's regardless of the present health situations.

I'm sorry this post turned into a novel.  I know I'll probably lose some of you mid-post.   ;)  ;D

I guess I'm just posting to blow off steam.  I may not be online in awhile since my plan is to move back down there to help with her care, and they don't have internet.  I will try to check in on occasion, but it's not my top priority. lol

I WILL still do my secret virtual santa gifts though when called for.  I'm still trying to think of what to get for the person.


Glad to hear the surgery went well.  You are a good daughter for taking care of her.  I will keep her in my prayers for a speedy recovery.

It turns out, you cannot have the flu jab if you have a sniffle, for your body has to be clear of all colds and the like.

Well what else should expect from the bookmistress but a novel  ;)

I'm glad the surgery went well... I bet your dad doesn't want you mom to go to a rehab facility because he misses her but he's afraid to admit it...

my dad was in one for about a week it was good for him. I don't think my mom could have cared for him on her own...plus they made him do his rehab - he would've stopped doing it at home.

Hopefully you can convince your dad that it might better for her there than at home.  an infection could be serious and the idea is that you guys want her to stay around longer

good luck!

Busy-ish day today.

I took the kids to school and then went to fetch the necklace that has been specially made for my mother-in-law.  Back to school for the workgroup, we were laminating stuff and cutting out a map of Canada and other things.

On the way to the gym I popped into a friends house.  I stayed so long chatting that I missed the gym to go home for lunch!  ::)

Whizzed to buy the last couple of presents, filled the car up and then went to the gym.  Dashed home to meet the school bus.

It's organised through the PTO.  The copier room has boxes for staff to leave the job in.  We get together once a week and do what needs doing.  We do copying, binding, laminating, cutting out, stamping out letters for displays, all sorts.  Some is needed by the next week, some are long term projects.  One we completed today is something for the end of the school year.  Perhaps you should suggest it to your PTO (if you have such a thing?  I got the impression you taught at college level?  ???)

It's SNOWING out here in Vegas AGAIN!!!  :o It started around 3 this afternoon and hasn't let up since! Unlike a couple of days ago, where the snow was mostly on the West side, this time the snow is everywhere! The roads this time are extremely slick, but for the most part (except for a couple of speeding morons on the freeway) the drivers here have been very cooperative. I never thought I'd see this much snow at one time in my lifetime (keep in mind I've lived in a desert climate my entire life and have only seen snow a few times in my life). It's supposed to snow through much of the night. It's dark out here right now but maybe I'll go and make that snowman tomorrow morning!  :)

So you DO get snow in Vegas ! I meant to ask you before, whether you got 'White Christmases'.  Well, I figured you did .... but with temperatures always above 100 F ... when I was there ... it was hard to imagine.


As for me ... still battling the 'tummy bug' ... but in addition ... woke up today, feeling arthritic, or some such condition. Left hip side sore (no bruises I can see) ... haven't done ANYTHING that I can think, would have brought it on. Mobility, slow, painful ... sorta limping along.

Rice and I had to take the family dog (the chocolate Labrador) to the animal hospital last night.  He was really listless, wouldn't eat, wouldn't drink, wouldn't go #2, and was just looking so horrible and breathing so weird that we just loaded him in the car and took him out.  The staff were really caring and helped take him out of the car when he couldn't move on his own.

Diagnosis was a prostate infection, so lots of antibiotics (oh what fun that was trying to make an almost 80 pound dog swallow three pills), lots of fluids, and trying to keep him mobile so his legs and joints don't stiffen up where they drew blood and gave him a shot.  They also suggested he get neutered because of the prostate risks.

Meanwhile, my cousin and I are putting together the slideshow for my grandmother's memorial on Friday.  We've decided on some Elvis songs ("Peace In the Valley" and "Blue Christmas") and a song by Linkin Park ("My December").  There might be more though because I'm going to set them to the slideshow and there are quite a few pictures.

So I went to bed, fought with hubby, not over the covers, but because I kept sliding over to his side of the bed, looking for warmth, and he would roll over on my hair!!! Not once but at least 2 times that I remember! Now I have a headache and a crook in my neck. That's what I get for trying to go to bed at a decent hour! >:( ::)

Yesterday walking up with the kids from the school bus I was opening my Christmas cards.  I got one from a friend in town with a picture of a penguin on the front.  I showed it to Elizabeth, saying "look at that penguin".  Elizabeth said, all excited, "where?" and started looking around the garden!  ;D


Last night almost every time I went upstairs James came out his bedroom to go to the toilet.  Even at 11.00 when we went up to bed - he's normally fast asleep by this point.  After we'd switched off the hall light and were in the bathroom cleaning teeth Dai and I heard the noise of a door shutting.  When I was ready for bed I went to shut our bedroom door and spotted James had closed his door and had the light on!  I went in to check and he was sat up in bed reading Harry Potter.  I took the book away, switched off the lights and told him to go to sleep.  Then I told Dai, he reckoned James had just spotted the book and started reading it then.

I spoke to James about it this morning and he confessed he kept going to the bathroom so that I wouldn't go into his bedroom and spot that he was reading in bed.  He was reading all night until I caught him.  >:(


Today I'm supposed to be cleaning the house before my m-i-l comes for the holidays tomorrow evening.

He is reading the last one - Deathly Hallows.  I know it is hard to mad at him doing something most parents would love their kids to be doing.  It's just that he has already been told off for reading after 'lights out' and other inappropriate times before.  I thought he understood the rules

it's just that book is so good. I couldn't put it down either.   

I actually didn't turn on my TV all day the day I read that book

when I was kid.... right around the time of the Iran Hostage Crisis... "This is Ted Koppel and tonight is Day 88 (or whatever)"  anyway
After Nightline went off the air the local ABC affiliate would air an episode of Charlie's Angels so every night at midnight or 1am  I would turn on the TV real quiet so I could watch Chuck's Chicks.... man my parents had a hell of a time getting me up in the mornings....

Cat, I'm sorry....I hope it works out so that you can go, I really do.  But safety first and foremost, ok?

As long as we are talking weather.  Public schools closed again.  TV said we got 9 inches, but it actually feels more like a foot.  I haven't had the energy to shovel (thought landlord's plow guy would have been here by now, don't know why...).  I got home later than usual due to hair appt.  It was supposed to be tomorrow, but my stylist had a death in the family and the funeral is tomorrow, so she moved me to today.  Was very sorry to hear about the passing, of course, but now Micah won't have to drive to Flint by herself (I was really stressing about that).  So much to get done before we leave on Monday and now we've gotta spend 6 hrs driving to retrieve my dig cam.  >:(  SHE steals it and I have to be the one to drive to retrieve it. Yeah, I'm angry about it.

Sunday we are going to do some last minute shopping in Grand Rapids, then go catch whatever movie is playing at whatever time we get to the theatre.  I need to get off here and make some cookies (taking them to my mechanic before we leave tomorrow), then when M gets home, run to the liquor store to get the wine my dad wants (it's easier for me to get it than for him) to go with Christmas dinner.  Shoot, I forgot to make hotel reservations for the 30th and 31st (I think I'm going to spend it in Niles for a change of scenery, plus I let Micah talk me into letting her go to Chicago for NYE and will drive home w/ friends on the 7th).  I am going to put her on the train in Niles and see my "family" down there.

Off to make cookies.  Catch up with ya later.

OR.......I do this a lot....I go to the store to get, let's say...lettuce, and I come home with $90.00 worth of groceries and NO LETTUCE. ::)
I hate it too because I want a dam turkey sandwich now,  but I did get lots of lettuce  ;D for the guinea pig.    I was just standing there staring at the loaves of sourdough. I did buy 3 boxes of cookies. these seasonal ones the Lady Di & Julie love.

We shoveled last night and a good thing, too, because there is more now, but it won't be as if we hadn't.  Will probably be snowed in for much of today and tomorrow.

I didn't shovel last night and not many of our neighbors did too but problem is we are getting another 1-2 inches later then we have another one on Sunday and then on Christmas Day. :o

You should have shoveled earlier when the snow wasn't packed!  Now the temperature has dropped, everything has frosted over and the snow is really heavy!

I'm feeling much better than I did yesterday. Yeah, I'm still sad about not being able to go to my sister's but I can deal with it today. I think it is because I slept REALLY well last night. I can blame a lot of this on hormones which seem to be playing havoc with me lately (not to mention all the sh!t that has been going on).

I want to apologize to everyone for being very whinny, bitchy, and everything else this past few weeks and I want to thank all of you who extended their hand and leaded me their ears to listen. I will get through this and I can't imagine how I would get through these rough weeks without coming here to find the friendship & love that I have received. Thanks again.

So now they are talking again about a big storm that is supposed to come through tomorrow.  I am hesitant to let myself get all excited again but I did something that will drastically improve our chances of getting snow....

I started shovelling the snow but realised it was hard-packed underneath and Dai would probably rather drive on fresh snow up our driveway so I stopped shovelling.  (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).

We went sledging/sledding this afternoon for about an hour.  It was lots of fun.

Now we will see what amount of snow tomorrow brings.

My landlord has yet to hire a reliable person to plow.  I went out and shoveled, then Micah finally got home and finished so I could come in and make cookies.  Took them to my mechanic's shop.  Curt was back (was kind of hoping he was still in Ludington, but oh well).  He does plowing on the side.  Told me to give his info to landlord, he would only charge $25 to do our little parking lot since he knew me.  Would also be willing to do a volume discount.

After that, picked up M and we drove to Flint.  The girl/her mom/her grannie gave us crappy directions, so we ended up going about 20 miles out of our way (telling me we needed to get on 475 would have been VERY helpful).  Then she screwed up the directions again in every conceivable way, which delayed our arrival.  We finally found the house (the subdivision hadn't been plowed, so THAT was interesting in our Dodge with no snow tires).  The little b wasn't even there (yes, she knew we were coming, which is why she was at the flippin mall).  So I got my dig cam and cord, dead batteries (wasn't that nice of her) and no gas money (big surprise).  The trip home went much quicker, not having to rely on her for directions.  I decided that even though I lost a day that could have been used cleaning, packing, doing laundry and/or baking, I needed to decompress.  So Micah & I went to jazz.  She stayed for a little bit, before going to babysit.  I stayed for the whole thing and the drummer gave me a CD of his band playing Christmas tunes.  He also gave me a ride home because it started snowing AGAIN.  I know it was predicted, but just once couldn't they be wrong about something other than when it would start?  I wouldn't mind if they predicted it and it NEVER came.  Very well might mess up our last minute shopping trip to Grand Rapids.  Which would give me time to wrap birthday presents, but still leave me in a Christmas quandry.....  :-\\

Loved the jazz, but I've got an incredible headache and am drained from trip.  I'm going to take something for head and call it a night.  Thanks for listening!!!

Wow Stats! I hope your headache goes away.

My Dad, Step-Mom and baby sister were here, and were supposed to stay until tomorrow, but because today ended up being gorgeous and more snow is expected tomorrow, they left early. I don't blame them. Driving in snow storms is definitely not fun. Although my selfish heart wanted them to stay - I let them go without a single complaint. It was great having them here, and of course they spoiled us.... they bought Big Nasty an entire BOX of Caramilk chocolate bars! I got one of those fleecy/plushy blankets - warm as can be. oOo and I got flannel pj pants and a Grumpy Bear t-shirt to wear with them. Big Nasty also got this football shaped music box. It is actually designed to hold candy so I guess it is a candy dish, but when you open it, it plays the Football Anthem. Pretty awesome!

The Son got some cash and the new Fall Out Boy cd, as well as a cool hot chocolate kit and a gigantic box of chocolates! It was a great time!

Been sorta preoccupied the past couple of days.  Friday was the memorial for my grandmother, which turned out really well, even though some of her children decided it was not necessary to show up. ::)  I made a slideshow, which was excellent, if I do say so myself.  Suck thing was that the church wasn't equipped to show something made with Windows Movie Maker, so we had to show it at my aunt's house after the service part.  I almost ALMOST made it through the service without crying, but my aunt's tribute to my grandmother really tore me up inside.  I'm going to have to get a copy of it and permission from her to post it on here, because it should be shared.

We're at the inlaws this weekend, which is going rather well *knock on wood*.  We spent the day shopping and eating with them, and Jason was doing his show off routine. :)

Looking forward to your Aunt's tribute. well, despite the minor glitches, I'm happy to hear the memorial turned out well. Has Rice checked his PMs. I made him an offer which I hope he won't refuse if you guys are in Danville on Monday. that's only 10 minutes away from me and when I get off work, we can meet up and go get some Back Forty BBQ ribs or whatever else sounds good.


...so we had a really good time this evening going out to see The Nutcracker at the legendary Paramount theater in Oakland. it was packed, we had great seats and the show was excellent. we bought a new Nutcracker for our mantle and a nutcracker ornamnent for the tree. after the show, they gave everyone a small box of See's candy on the way out. that was cool. we were eating chocolates before we got out of the parking lot  ;D

So the other day the weather service was making a big deal over this storm that was coming through the Northwest.  It was supposed to dump a bunch of snow and I was sooooo excited!!!  Well, what did we end up getting?  NOTHING!!!  I was bummed.

So now they are talking again about a big storm that is supposed to come through tomorrow.  I am hesitant to let myself get all excited again but I did something that will drastically improve our chances of getting snow....

I took my car to the carwash. ;)
Murphy's Law should kick in soon  ::) and you guys should be getting some snow soon and hopefully it's in VistaVision

I started shovelling the snow but realised it was hard-packed underneath and Dai would probably rather drive on fresh snow up our driveway so I stopped shovelling.  (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).

We went sledging/sledding this afternoon for about an hour.  It was lots of fun.

Now we will see what amount of snow tomorrow brings.
what is sledging  ???

Well, I wasn't planning on putting the slideshow up, but then I realized it would be an awesome way to rub it in my aunt's face (the one who didn't show up).  She was supposed to do one for the memorial, but said it would take "a week".  You wanna know how long it took me?  Eight hours, and that's counting scanning the pictures, downloading a song, taking breaks, procrastinating, and eating. ::)  So now I'm gonna embed it in my blog so she can see it.  Spiteful?  You betcha!  And I know my grandmother wouldn't want me to be like this, but this aunt is the same one who pulled crap when my grandfather died.  So she can take a long walk off a short pier.

Here's the link to it, although it may not be showing yet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh2eCUHb4wU

My mom is doing okay right now, but I know she's happy to have us as a distraction and to just help out.  We both kept our minds busy on Friday by getting my aunt's house ready for the gathering after the memorial and then helping clean up.  Tons of people made food and stuff, so we hardly had to buy or make anything.  I know it's going to suck for her when we leave though. :-\\

Hey Jess-  before I check it out I need to know if You Raise Me Up is one of the songs? Seriously, emotionally I can't handle the song so if it is I'll watch the slideshow in silence (or play my own music) but if its not then I'll be able to get the full effect.

It's actually "Peace In The Valley" by Elvis Presley.  My grandma was a big Elvis fan, and my cousin picked that one (her and my sister helped a teensy weensy bit...mainly by picking songs :P).

I don't know why you would feel it necessary to apologize for being me......



I consider it to be an HONOR to be you.  ;) :D :D ;D ;D

Sledging = sledding (UK style  ;))





And what would you call it, Henk?

We've always called it sledging on a sledge but everyone here goes sledding on a sled (weirdoes if you ask me  ;) )

It started snowing again this morning and hasn't stopped yet.  I don't know how deep it is but it's a good bit higher than the doorstep.

Karen - it stopped here for about an hour and now it has started all over again.
They are calling for 8-10 inches before the afternoon is even over. :o

....oOo and in Canada they call it Tobogganing on a Toboggan ;D

We had the storm Friday,but missed the small storm we were suppose to have today. I have to call Missy she is at her boyfriends during the vacation,and he lives in Fair Haven near Oswego.
Must be that being so close to Canada,because I refer to it as sledding & tobogganing :)

Looking forward to your Aunt's tribute. well, despite the minor glitches, I'm happy to hear the memorial turned out well. Has Rice checked his PMs. I made him an offer which I hope he won't refuse if you guys are in Danville on Monday. that's only 10 minutes away from me and when I get off work, we can meet up and go get some Back Forty BBQ ribs or whatever else sounds good.


...so we had a really good time this evening going out to see The Nutcracker at the legendary Paramount theater in Oakland. it was packed, we had great seats and the show was excellent. we bought a new Nutcracker for our mantle and a nutcracker ornamnent for the tree. after the show, they gave everyone a small box of See's candy on the way out. that was cool. we were eating chocolates before we got out of the parking lot  ;D 


I saw a production of the Nutcracker ballet a couple of years ago. It was really beautiful!  8) The only thing was this guy sitting next to me kept falling asleep during the show.  >:(  ;D

I think it's beautiful also and I told Lady Di last night that the music was making me feel sleepy

wow Jess that was really powerful! You did an amazing job!



just watched it and Jessica, you put together a wonderful  tribute for your grandmother.



That was a good choice of song for the tribute Jess. Thanks for sharing the slideshow with us.... :)



That was a lovely tribute Thank you for sharing it. :)So true Peace In The Valley is a lovely song :)



That was a very nice tribute, Jessica!



{{hugs}} I've been thinking of you.  Sorry your aunt deemed it unnecessary to show up for her own mothers funeral.  Not cool.  The tribute you, Alicia and your cousin made was beautiful.


Thank you for all the kind words about it.  I can't really watch it again though cause I'll start bawling.  My aunt (and uncle and cousin) have chosen to ignore everything now: us, my grandmother's memory, the memorial.  I guess now they've milked all the drama and sympathy out of having her die, so it's time to go back to their petty and self absorbed lives.  To them I say: WHATEVER.  I don't think I want to hear from them or see them for a very long time.  They're just...despicable in my eyes now.  My grandmother had her mean moments and her bouts of craziness, but she was still MY GRANDMOTHER and THEIR MOTHER, so they can totally kiss my fat white ass.

Although it would be kind of fun to see how my aunt weasels out of paying my dad when he goes to collect money.  She promised him that she would pay him a portion of the cremation and mortuary charges if he would cover it at first because she had no money.  Not a word or a sign from her since.  He's going over there this week at some point. :D
