Subject: How ya doing? It's March!

Written By: Rice_Cube on 02/05/09 at 3:06 pm

By other posters' logic, since it is probably going to be March sometime in the near future, I'm starting this thread and you guys can post in it if you think it's March as well 8) 

Besides, it's probably March in some alternate dimension, or maybe it's March on Mars, who knows?

All I get to do, as far as my garden is concerned, is look out my bedroom window.  This is it though, I've been watching the suns movement and I'm going to put my potted plants  in the best places I can.  I have Lupine sprouts I planted a while ago and my dad has some pea and pepper sprouts in a near by area.  A little more weeding, ground some plants, and plant those seeds I got for Christmas.  The seeds are a bird/ butterfly mix.

I know how hard it is.  Losing a friend is in someways more difficult than losing a parent.  You expect that your parents will go before you, but your friends are supposed to be the ones there to see you through that, and toddle along with you into old age.  :\'(

Ok, so far, not off to a good start.

My full time part time person has been out since Feb 12.  She will be out this week at least, maybe longer...doctors don't know what's wrong/how to treat.  So far nothing has worked.

Just found out today that my part-time person was offered another job that she applied for.  So I will be losing her, but hopefully not before my other person comes back.  At least my bosses know I can't run this office alone and that I have to be able to take vacation days to take care of my parents......we just don't know where we are going to find a replacement (2 if the other person also gets hired elsewhere).

I have been on hold and transfered 5 times with Verizon trying to find out why they show an arrears on my bill.  They have the worst customer service anywhere.  That is why I refuse to get FIOS. 

FINALLY.  It took me 29minutes and 3 seconds, 28 of which were being transferred and on hold, but the problem is resolved.  Then, of course she asked me about FIOS, and I said not until they resolved the customer service problem.  She said, well we don't work on weekends so Mondays are backed up.  So what happens if I have a problem on Saturday??  Later, dudette....

I'm so sorry to hear about this.  I don't suppose any of the doctors are listening to your theory (which, might I say is not only valid in its own right, but doubly so because of her history with hospitals and meds?).  I hope they listen to you and your mom gets better fast.

My mother is STILL in the hospital. They STILL don't know what is wrong with her. She doesn't sound good. She is slurring her words and such. I just got off the phone with my sister. She & another sister will try to get over there tomorrow. Because she is throwing up, they took her off of food. Personally, I think it might be meds they have her on. I have the feeling if they take her off the meds, she might get better. It seems like she has more problems with meds-the last time she was in the hospital, she had a heart attack because of the meds they put her on.  >:( >:( >:(

You have your hands full.  Your mother sounds like it is either meds or a stroke.  What kind of a hospital, and what kind of a doctor does she have?  It just doesn't sound right.

Yesterday and today I was called by a company calling about "an important personal business matter" (recorded voice).  I'm supposed to be on the do not call list - so how can I report them?  I have the number but not the name of the company because I hang up!




Opticians follow up appointment today to check the fit of my new lenses.  This afternoon I'm going to look around a Healthtrax gym.  I'm not going to join - just being nosey!


Karen, try these websites to see who called:

Well, I've been to the urologist today. Everything seems to be in order, although I have to wait for the results of my urine test (to see if there really is no more blood in it). From what I could see, it looked alright - but I'm not a doctor.

Spent well over an hour in hospital...
First I had to wait half an hour at Urology
..spent about five minutes with the urologist, told him I was feeling fine, no more pain...
...urologist wasn't entirely satisfied when I told him I hadn't actually SEEN anything leave my body...
so he sent me to radiology to have a photo taken...
back to urology - photo showed a kidney stone...or maybe not... :-\\...no probably not, just a false echo
well, you know...let's take a sample of your urine, see if there's any blood (to be on the safe side)...
...And what about the MRI? I asked.
Well, he couldn't tell - not for sure, anyway. Looked okay, but...
So he suggested I make an appointment with the surgeon who ordered it (Grmbl...should've thought of doing that myself... >:( :-[)

Off I went to take a leak...
...thank goodness I didn't have any problems peeing... ::)
...was told the urologist will call me back in a week or three to give me my test results.

...then I was sent to Laboratry to deliver my very own samples! :o I found this very odd...

And then I decided to go home. I'll call Surgery tomorrow, to make an appointment for a consult by phone.

My car news gets worse and worse.  Now Curt tells Micah he didn't even want to turn the key because some part has a leak that will cause the engine to blow up if the key is turned.  Of course NO one in the free world HAS this part in stock.  Did I mention we are supposed to go visit my parents tomorrow?  I don't even want to think about how much this is going to cost.  I need to call the IRS to get an extension cuz obviously their money is going into my car.  :\'( :\'( :\'(

Today my hubby was diagnosed with Macular Degenerative, which is unusual for a man his age.  Usually people are alot older when/if they get it.  Hubby said they had told him he was starting to develop it 15 years ago (when he was examined in the Navy.)  Today, apparently it's worse, although they haven't really told us much.  They are supposed to prescribe him some vitamins with Lutene? which I think I've read occurs in tomatos.  Apparently it helps eyesight problems.  Hubby is naturally upset and grim, but has accepted that this is happening, and I've told him that whatever we have to do to make life easier for him, we'll do.

Patty, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's diagnosis.  I hope they are able to slow it down.  I don't blame him for being grim and worried.  You both are in my thoughts and prayers.  *hugs*


Cat, any new word yet on your mom?



My car problems keep growing.  Don't have it back yet.  Micah called Curt yesterday and he said that he won't even start it because there is something (he explained it but I can't) leaking/wrong so that if you try to start it, the engine will explode.  They are having major bad luck trying to find this part.  I tried calling him on his cell last night, went to voice mail and he didn't call back.  I know he has been at the shop almost 3 hrs this morning and no word.  Can't be a good sign.  I'm thinking we aren't going to be able to go over and check on my parents......I am trying not to think about how much this is going to cost. 

Got news....car's fixed.  Curt is eating as much of the expense as he can.  This job that would have been over $1,000 is costing me $393.80 including tax.  He felt bad charging that much, I feel bad for him charging me so little....don't get me wrong, words can't express how much I appreciate it, but I still feel horrible that he is eating so much of it.

I just phoned the insurance company.  They are still processing the claim but have been in contact with the hospital about it.  I was told just to ignore the calls asking about it.  I did just e-mail patient accounts confirming that I knew the account was being processed.


I took the kids to school this morning.  We were a bit late getting ready for the school bus, and Elizabeth had to take her violin in anyway so I gave them a lift.  Then I went to Curves to do my half hour (plus some because I lost track of time!)

I'm going to do a bit of housework, shower and then I'm meeting friends for lunch.

I am sorry about this. I understand completely because a few years ago, I was declared legally blind-which is kind of strange since I can still see. However, there is a chance that I can lose my sight totally-so I REALLY understand.


Karen, way cool about your friend.

As for my mother, it seems she has some kind of heart related problem. (My sister couldn't remember exactly when she told me). We were told that the only meds she is on are the meds she was taking at home. But, now she is slurring her words and such which is not like her. Our theory is the fact that the meds had made her sick so at home, when the meds started making her sick, she stopped taking them until the side affects subsided and then went back on them until the side effects bothered her. But, in the hospital, they didn't stop them-just kept giving them to her-which is probably making her slur her words.

As for her stomach being bloated, that was from a urinary tract infection which antibiotics are clearing up.

Now, my sisters & I are trying to figure out what to do with her because it is getting more & more apparent that she really can't live alone. She doesn't eat right, she really isn't taking care of herself, etc. etc. She doesn't want to move which I can understand (she loves her home) but she doesn't have the $$$ for in-home care. My sisters are closest (not including my brother but that is a different story  ::)  >:( >:( ) which is 2 hours away. We are about 3 & a half hours away. My sisters want to move her to Conn. to be closer to them but she doesn't want to go. So, we are in a BIG dilemma.

Good question. I haven't the foggiest idea. The matter really needs to be looked into. I was hoping that Medicare/Medicaid would pay. I looked into it briefly the other day but I'm still not too sure.

Karen, congrats to your friend and I'm sorry you have to go through all that with the phone calls.  I've been there, done that when Micah was hospitalized (took a year to get it sorted), so I understand your frustration.  PM me if you need to vent.


Patty, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's diagnosis.  I hope they are able to slow it down.  I don't blame him for being grim and worried.  You both are in my thoughts and prayers.  *hugs*


Cat, any new word yet on your mom?



My car problems keep growing.  Don't have it back yet.  Micah called Curt yesterday and he said that he won't even start it because there is something (he explained it but I can't) leaking/wrong so that if you try to start it, the engine will explode.  They are having major bad luck trying to find this part.  I tried calling him on his cell last night, went to voice mail and he didn't call back.  I know he has been at the shop almost 3 hrs this morning and no word.  Can't be a good sign.  I'm thinking we aren't going to be able to go over and check on my parents......I am trying not to think about how much this is going to cost. 

Got news....car's fixed.  Curt is eating as much of the expense as he can.  This job that would have been over $1,000 is costing me $393.80 including tax.  He felt bad charging that much, I feel bad for him charging me so little....don't get me wrong, words can't express how much I appreciate it, but I still feel horrible that he is eating so much of it.
good news on getting your car fixed Amy and that you don't have to pay as much.  don't feel too bad that you weren't charged more. he'll be blessed in some other way for treating you right. karma my friend.

Going to a guys get together in a couple hours to visit my long time friend Randy. he's 54 and has terminal cancer from asbestos exposure. he was our softball coach for about ten years and me & Lady Di have know him for about 30 years. He's having a bunch of his old teammates over to eat and just hangout.

thanks Howard.  hopefully seeing a bunch of his pals will pick up his spirits. sadly, I just heard today that he was told he may only have 6 months to live.  I have some old softball videos on VHS of our team playing back in the 80's when we were all young and skinny and I'm gonna take those over for us to watch. he was one of our pitchers on the team.

Cancer sucks.  Rice needs to hurry up and cure it.

I'm glad you guys are around to keep him in good spirits though.  I'm sure he appreciates it, even though his diagnosis sucks a major dong.

I did my good deed today.  My neighbor accidentally left her keys in the front door, so I knocked and told her.  She was so grateful that she rewarded me with some awesome Mary Kay products.  These are not sample sizes. :o  I love Mary Kay stuff (especially their facial cleansers....they're the only ones that ever eliminated my acne), but I'm never able to afford it, so this just makes me happy.

We went skiing today - perhaps the last chance for this winter.  I skied for about an hour and a half and then met the others for lunch (I'd had a lesson voucher to use up).  I was so tired!  I skied once more after lunch and then gave up and had a cup of tea and a cookie!

it sure does suck and we had a really good time so I think his spirits was lifted and he had a good time visiting with his old buddies.
That would be awesome if Rice was the one to discover a cure. I could brag that I had waffles with him  8)

thanks karen.  I think we did, it felt just like old times.


...so there were about 6 of us guys that used to be on the softball team back in the 80's & early 90's and a few other guys there to support our friend. we had a great time looking at old picture albums, watching a documentary on steroid use in America and then we watched Abbot & Costello meet Frankenstein. Our friend Randy has lost some weight, but he still sounds great. he's still doing his DJ job at the radio station he works at, but he has to be driven to work, so I gave my number for him to call for a ride if one of his regulars can't make it. anyways we ate lots of food and there were about 6 boxes of Girl Scout cookies and we munched on those. It was like a mini reunion of sorts since we don't see each other too much anymore, but back in the day we used to be a closely knit fellowship of guys. our team started back in 1980 and there are only 2 original players left that still play. me & my friend Brian who is the current coach. It was funny looking at pictures of us from 1984. I was lean and my hair was solid black  ;D  oh well, life goes on and hopefullly Randy's life will go longer than expected. thanks all for your thoughts and hugs and prayers. it means a lot to me.

AZ does right is they don't do the time change so AZ has been an hour ahead all winter...

So frustrated, so preventable, so needless, could have been a simple fix - 2 weeks ago.  I am trying to be nice here.  Take the dog to the vet, or CALL ME WHEN I CAN DO SOME GOOD.

I am starting on mine today.
I know I am only going for technically 2 days, but I want to make sure I am prepared for any type of weather.

Nasty is working on the laundry and I am going through our luggage and bags to see what I should use/what would be easiest. I also have to go through my shoes and figure those out. Since I won't have to wear my boots I will be happy! I am bringing my winter jacket - it is 3 in 1, so that way if it's cold I'll be warm, or if it's warm, I will only need the outer shell. Shower stuff and hair crap... so much to pack! And I have to find a bog around here I want to use when we go out. I don't plan on lugging my purse around with me, so all my ID and crap will be easy. But if we shop I want to have my recycle bag with me, and I want to have a bag large enough to carry a constant bottle of water and other trivial things. ;)

Laptop - I need to decide if I am going to use the hard case for it or a soft one. Good Lawd, more to do than I thought! ;D ;D

Cat - you are losing weight Girl, but you are also building muscle. Remember your abs get bigger and tighter as they develop. ;)

Please, buy yourself a new pair of jeans! I don't want you to be uncomfortable, and I don't want you to end up hurting your insides from the jeans being a little too tight. I don't know if you shop there or not, but apparently Old Navy is having a jeans sale. Something like $19 a pair. I know I saw the commercial last week so I hope it is still going. ;)

My purse is a single should strap leather thing, and it gets on my nerves sometimes when we just go to the mall. I might actually use my mini cargo bag. It slings over my shoulder and neck, so it might be a bit better. I had a purse, ugly as all heck, that I bought the last time we were in DC. I didn't have a body sling purse and we were going downtown DC! :o But my baby sister liked it a lot so I gave it to her. I am going to keep working out the bag situation for sure! 8)

Purses come in varied sizes, personally I carry the biggest thing I can find (and subsequently have back and shoulder problems, and my hubby will carry it for me if we're out too long - isn't he awesome?   :) ) I also carry a mid-size shaving tote (I got it free buying razors several years ago) to carry all my medicines and insulin and needles.  I also carry at least one camera (usually two).  

I never really thought about all the walking we're gonna be doing, so I guess I'd better pare down alot of the junk I carry to make it as light as possible.  And get some comfy shoes.

  Was having a dream early this morning that I was asleep on the floor of a dark, damp cave.  My pillow was wet.  Felt like I was going to drown.  Woke-up to find my nose was running.  WTF!? I says to myself, I don't have a cold.  I feel fine!  Turned on the light and my pillow and my face are covered in blood.  Tasted it in my mouth - coppery sweet.  Had a bad nosebleed while I was sleeping.  I NEVER get nosebleeds...

That's what has been going on with my sinuses.
My allergies are starting up, and so my right sinus is clogged. I have been doing my neti-pot thing, and warm compresses - because I don't want my ear to get clogged. No fun but at least it moisturizes my nose. I can't use nasal sprays because they dry out my sinuses and I end up WITH nosebleeds.

My brother is typing that I just got a new computer.

Technically, it's used, but that doesn't really matter.  It's not a top of the line gamer PC;  it's a P4 2.4ghz, 512MB of RAM, and onboard video.  Old, but it was cheap at a new computer store from just up the street.  Soon, I and/or my/our dad will upgrade it with a faster processor (either a 2.66ghz P4 sitting in the garage or Ann's old laptop's 3.2ghz), a real video card (my old ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb AGP), and more RAM.

Yes, I'm a nerd.  No, Ann has no idea of what I just typed.

Aw crap! Here I have been going around the house today, singing a happy tune, thinking about this weekend and not paying much attention to anything.... I decided to check and see if Lost is a rerun like they said last week - come to find out it is only TUESDAY! Here I thought it was Wednesday! And that explains some things I did yesterday and why I didn't remind The Son that garbage had to go last night - because I was thinking all day yesterday that it was Tuesday! Aargh!

Perhaps I will start to read my new book tonight. I am just afraid that I will get drawn into it and then I won't have anything to read on the road trip on Friday. :(

However, on the upside of some things, a new album came out today that I have been waiting for since November.

Sorry to hear that, moo.  :(


Thanks Dag  :) There where four of us that lost our jobs yesterday with more to come, I believe  :(



I'm so sorry to hear that, Amanda.  I admire your attitude about trying to be philosophical, but understand if it's hard!  I hope you find something very, VERY soon.


Thanks Amy :)  I've already sent my Resume off to three companies, so fingers crossed  :-\\



I'm so sorry.    :(


Thanks Ash  :)


oh no! Seems like there's a lot of that going around. I hope you can find a new job.

I haven't been too successful myself in finding employment yesterday, although when I met with my job coach yesterday I was able to find a couple of places to apply to, so I sent in my resume to those companies and am currently awaiting a reply.


Thanks Jeff  :)  Best of luck to you too!





I'm so sorry Moo,Hope you find something soon.  :)

Well, we went out for a bit tonight. Had another Shamrock Shake, bought the new Chris Cornell album and picked up some other things that were/are needed. I haven't started my new book yet. I might tomorrow though. Have discovered that I need to repack and possibly use the other bag I wasn't planning on using. Shoes and hair care necessities take up a lot of room! :o

I had one of these at the Field Museum's CrapDonalds location.  Not too bad, but that's all I'll give them credit for.  Oh, and their cute Hello Kitty watches that they're giving in Happy Meals right now.  Sort of makes up for the fact that it cost me $12 to eat there yesterday. :P

Oh man, I used to love those back in the day.

I'm just sort of down on their McNuggets now.  They taste like crap and they never give you enough dipping sauce, unless you pay 10 cents extra for each container.

I will say though that their cheeseburgers (I was a good girl and bought myself a Happy Meal yesterday so I didn't eat a lot) taste THE SAME as I remember them from my childhood.  That is not a bad thing.  Fries were okay, just a bit too salty.  Shamrock shake definitely gets the seal of approval.  Tasted like mint ice cream.

Two things of interest last night.

1. We were watching t.v. when Elvira came into the living room carrying something. At first I thought it was Frederico, her fake ferret that she is always dropping at my feet-or should I saw WHAT IS LEFT of Frederico.  ;D ;D ;D  She put this thing down and it moved.  :o :o :o  I then discovered that it was a mouse. Not a FAKE mouse but a REAL mouse!  :o :o :o :o I screamed. The mouse took off and Elvira took off after the mouse and Carlos took off after Elvira taking off after the mouse. She didn't find it. Carlos thinks that I scared her when I screamed (which she put it down BEFORE I screamed). I laughed at myself with the "Eek, a mouse" routine but it just startled me so-which is why I screamed-not because I am afraid of them. We never had mice before and we both find it strange to have them especially at this time of year. If we were to have them, they would come in at the BEGINNING of winter-not the end. Hopefully, both Elvira & Electra will earn their keep.


2. Yesterday, Carlos' ex sent us a DVD of Carlos' son's performances over the years. You can really see the evolution of his dancing ability. The earlier ones he had a hard time doing a single pirouette (a turn for those of you who do not know the term). Then he was struggling with a double pirouette. By the last few performances, he was doing quadruple pirouettes.  :o :o :o  Damn! He is good. And I don't say that just as a proud step-mom (which I am  ;) ) but as a former student of ballet. And there are a few of you who have seen a video of him in action and I think you will agree with me that he is DAMN GOOD!!!!

PTO workgroup this morning.  I was chopping pieces of craft paper to size for the art teacher.  Some year group is going to be making Chinese lanterns apparently.  We also had loads of laminating to do but the laminator ran out of film.  Next week's jobs sorted then!

Then I met with some friends at Barnes and Noble for a coffee/tea/hot chocolate.  Quick lunch and post here and then I have to meet Elizabeth from school.  It's her parent teacher conference this afternoon at about the time the school bus would arrive!  James is going around a friends house for the afternoon.

I would love to see a video of your amazing stepson.  I have known a couple of ballet dancers, I know the dedication it takes.  I am very impressed by him just reading about his accomplishments!

Congratulations to your friend.

Gestational diabetes is relatively common.  That's of the reasons they constantly test your pee throughout pregnancy.  Generally it goes away after the birth.  However, in a very few cases the mother is actually diabetic but it wasn't spotted until the extra stress of being pregnant.  Also some mothers who develop gestational diabetes go on to develop type 2 diabetes later in life.

I have mixed emotions right now. Carlos went to the hospital for his prep appointment. They said that it would take about 3 hours or so. They are lining him up, making sure everything will be in the right place, etc. etc. I think I am more scared about this than he is. As he is doing all that, I have a hair appointment. I am wearing the "tight" pants to see if I can last the day with them. If not, I will wear the new fat pants which look TOO baggy-but at least they will be comfortable. I don't know.  :-\\ :-\\  Decisions, decisions.


And I am TOTALLY EXCITED about tomorrow!!! YAY!!!

Yes, still have to pack, and do last minute stuff that you do before going away. I already called the "cat sitter" and she is good to go.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers!

Apparently they are doing great.
My girl friend didn't say that it was Gestational Diabetes, but she couldn't get her sugars below 240! :o They tried everything, including giving her shots and nothing worked. Now, I haven't talked to her yet - just a couple of texts, because she is obviously trying to spend as much time with the baby in the NICU. Her husband is of course a Soldier, and he is currently in Iraq. Don't know if they are going to send him home or make him wait until his regular leave. Who knows?

My only question now is will the baby have diabetes permanently or will this disappear as well?

It could just be an after-effect of the inbalance in blood sugar.  However, it looks as though the baby could have a slightly higher risk of developing diabetes.  Fingers crossed.

She has been doing a lot of coughing but she has been coughing sh!t up which is what she needs to do-and because of all the coughing, her voice sounded bad.

All the people with three letters in their handle arrived safely.  I heard from Tam, Ash and Gis.  Oh wait, I don't know if Cat got there yet, so I guess there is still one three-letter person on their way.  ;D

Getting ready to go to the city, first stop is the Philadelphia Pretzel Company. If they are open I'll get
some old fashioned Philly soft pretzels for everyone at the meet. I only hope the plans are the same,
as much as I like pretzels I don't want to have to eat 30 of them.  :P

that sounds real good and thoughtful of you Kevin. I wish I were there to sample some with mustard  ::)


..so doggone it. what is with these movie directors, I mean why the heck do they wanna make movies that make guys like me cry  :\'(  geez louise. I watched Reign Over Me today and that movie made me tear up something fierce, I musta cried about 4 or 5 times and Lady Di was out running errands so I watched it myself. after it was over I was talking about it with her and even that got me choked up. my gosh, I'm such a p*ssy.... now I need to watch a Mel Brooks movie or something lighter  ;D

...so we're going over to our friends house later to play poker, eat some hot dogs and hot wings & chips & dip.  should be fun and hopefully me & LD win the big bucks$$  hope everyone's having a good day, and no doubt the mini-meet Real Life Meeting is in full stride and those people are having a special day  8)

It is really strange when you meet someone for the first time and it's like you knew them all your
life. The real life meet was great and for the short time I was there I had a blast. I will leave the
stories to the storytellers but I will say that I am really glad to have had the chance to meet such
such wonderful people, and hopefully, I have the chance to meet those who couldn't make it.

PS, I told them I was going to gossip about them so if anybody asked, I did but deleted it.  ;)  ;D

I wish I could have been at the mini-meet!!!!

However, since I couldn't, I made the best of it and worked out at the gym with my daughter, cleaned the apt with my daughter and went to listen to jazz (yes, with my daughter).  She left about 9 to go pick up the b/f  :-X at the train station and I stayed.  It was the BEST night ever!!!  Not only was the jazz off the hook because it was my most favorite trio and they were playing at a level I didn't know they could (they are always fantastic, don't get me wrong, there was just something extra special tonight).  Then, the drummer (my fave) ate after the gig, so I kept him company.  He asked for my email and facebook stuff (hopefully he will send me vids and schedule info).  And if that wasn't enough (which it would have been), he gave me a ride home and let me listen to some of the stuff he and a couple guys recorded down in GR.  He is going to burn it for me.  Even though it was late, he let me listen to a bunch of tracks.  It was SO cool....

You all are welcome for the pretzels, I know there were a lot of them but I wanted to make sure it was enough. They are a Philly staple,
just like cheese steaks and scrapple. I figured you all would try the cheese steaks and a gift of scrapple wouldn't be practical so pretzels it was.  ;D

next time you see him tell him you were really impressed by his story - even if you're lying sound sincere- and you want to know what he did to get in inside because you are very interested in advancing just like he did!

The end of your nose?  Wild.  Mine is in my leg, they think it is caused by the hardware in my ankle from when I broke it 10 years ago.  They keep telling me to get it removed but with no insurance, who is paying for it?  I can't afford it, that's for sure.

We got back about 8.30 this evening.

We all had a great time.  The drive down on Friday took a bit longer than we anticipated so we didn't meet with anyone that evening.

We met Tam, Ash, Gis, Cat and Carlos on Saturday morning and we walked to the Liberty Bell and around Indepence Hall.  The we went aross to Campo's Deli (which was much smaller than we thought it would be).  We met ladybug, loki, sweetie44, Tia, Quirk and Midnightdarkness for lunch.  The cheesesteak was good!  Then bookmistress, her husband and Reynolds met us outside (we'd been thrown out of the deli for occupying tables for too long after we'd finished eating.)

Dai, myself, Elizabeth and James went on a bus tour in the afternoon.  We planned to go to Hard Rock Cafe for dinner but there was a two hout wait!  :o So we arranged to go to Appleby's instead.  SLight hitch getting everyone together (turns out tia was already inside Hard Rock having a beer  ::) ).  Anyway another good time at Appleby's - little devil rider and Miss Demetor (Tim and Julz) joined us there.

Dai took the kids back to the hotel for bed and I stayed with everyone else.  We tried to find a bar for a drink but everwhere was packed!  We ended up in the bar in my hotel - convenient for me at least.

This morning we met up again and then split into a couple of groups.  We went with Cat and Carlos to the maritime museum and went around a submarine and a warship.  Bookmistress, hubby and  Reynolds met us there.

We met up with everyone else (I think they went shopping) at Hard Rock cafe for lunch and then we headed off home.

It was great getting together with everyone.  And we already started talking about where the next meet will be!

However, since I couldn't, I made the best of it and worked out at the gym with my daughter, cleaned the apt with my daughter and went to listen to jazz (yes, with my daughter).  She left about 9 to go pick up the b/f  :-X at the train station and I stayed.  It was the BEST night ever!!!  Not only was the jazz off the hook because it was my most favorite trio and they were playing at a level I didn't know they could (they are always fantastic, don't get me wrong, there was just something extra special tonight).  Then, the drummer (my fave) ate after the gig, so I kept him company.  He asked for my email and facebook stuff (hopefully he will send me vids and schedule info).  And if that wasn't enough (which it would have been), he gave me a ride home and let me listen to some of the stuff he and a couple guys recorded down in GR.  He is going to burn it for me.  Even though it was late, he let me listen to a bunch of tracks.  It was SO cool....
Amy, aren't you having just a little too much fun  ::)    ;D  but really, glad to hear some of our people are mixing in some good stuff to offset all that February junk.


Yesterday, we went to check out a boat that we are hoping to have a short holiday on for our wedding anniversary in May :)

Last night was dinner out with friends - twisted my ankle on the walk home so today I was resting... :P Also had our friends two children over to have a play on the Wii for a while.
bummer about the ankle Amanda  :(,  but good luck with the Love Boat  8)


Sick as a dog.  Throat hurts, head hurts, ears feel plugged, blagh.
dang Jess, that's too bad. please get well soon  :)


Stupid Cellulitis is acting up, I ended up in the ER today.  While Feb sucked for most of you, March sucks for me
too bad Dagny, sorry March is sucking out on you.  :(


We wished you both could have been there to join us!
awww thanks. that's a nice thought. maybe next time and then the group will get bigger and bigger  :o  



I so wish I could have been there.  I want to make the next one!!!!!!!!!
me too!  :)  and Q too!

so we played poker last night, I took 2nd place money $20 & Lady Di got 3rd place $10, and in the second game, she won 2nd place money $20

...we just came back from an early dinner. we took her mom & dad to Black Angus for some prime rib, and boy was it good. now just chillin at home...I'm a bit bummed that Julie didn't come home for the weekend and she calls home less often, which is good for her in that she's totally recovered from last years ailments, and doesn't need to be on the phone constantly with Di, but then she also has a boyfriend and if she didn't, she'd probably call home more or come home every weekend. I miss her  :\'(  she's gotten her wings and is really soaring right now, very independant.

It was a fun time in Philly. 

We stayed a very nice (cheap) hotel, however, they charged 4 times for the same one night stay.  So our debit card got hit with $209.60 for a $54 room.  :o  And they charged us twice for the same rollaway bed for Kathie.  ::)

Needless to say, hubby is pissed.  I've gotta call and firmly state the case that this is totally ridiculous.

Had a great dinner at Applebee's with the gang, took us a long time to find the restaurant then went to three parking garages that were full before finally finding the one we parked at.  I walked so much yesterday and today that my little toe has been bleeding since last night.  I was the caboose that followed everyone around to the bars.  lol 

Philly is a beautiful city but too many people and too much traffic.  lol  I'm just a country girl at heart.

Glad to be home.

Shopping this morning for jeans for Elizabeth and also groceries.

My friend phoned earlier to see about going for a walk around lunchtime.  So I re-arranged my plans to go with her.  She rang later to say she might go around 1.00 but I should call her to check at 12.30.  Now she's saying she might go later and she call to see if I'm still good to go.  ::)

that is so beautiful, Q....seriously, it touched my heart. I agree with you. :)

Ann, you seem like such a sweet person..I'm sure you have lots to offer this world. You have a beautiful smile that would brighten up someone's day! :) I know how it can be to be overly depressed and down on yourself, as I suffer from that sometimes too. When I'm feeling extra sad/depressed, I like to think of all of the good things that have come out of my life and how they may have affected others in a positive way...and then I think of the people who have it SO much worse than me, yet they are still able to live and smile. Don't give up on a beautiful thing. :)

I just don't know what has been keeping me from trying to get away from the problem which I beleve has a lot if not everything to do with my mom.  Is probably just my half of the dysfunction and I'm just in it that deep.  I'm not stupid, I can be very helpful.  Helping others is what keeps me alive.  I need a good friend to be a room mate with me or something so I can figure out how to live on my own.

Thanks, guys.


Oh, I forgot to mention that I talked to my mother today. She is in a convalescent/nursing home. She is determined to go home this weekend so she is working hard on her recovery. I don't know if I mentioned that she had congestive heart failure. That was indirectly brought on by my sister's death. Ma wasn't thinking right afterwords (none of us were). She was supposed to contact her heart doc to let him know that she had run out of meds but slipped her mind. So, she didn't have them-along with all the other meds she takes and she wasn't aware that they were missing. So, it led to this. But, she is now on the mend-and her thoughts are on Carlos. She said that the two are them are going to get better together.

Thanks, guys.


Oh, I forgot to mention that I talked to my mother today. She is in a convalescent/nursing home. She is determined to go home this weekend so she is working hard on her recovery. I don't know if I mentioned that she had congestive heart failure. That was indirectly brought on by my sister's death. Ma wasn't thinking right afterwords (none of us were). She was supposed to contact her heart doc to let him know that she had run out of meds but slipped her mind. So, she didn't have them-along with all the other meds she takes and she wasn't aware that they were missing. So, it led to this. But, she is now on the mend-and her thoughts are on Carlos. She said that the two are them are going to get better together.

must be a relief to finally have some answers and to know something can be done about it. Hope she heals quickly.



today is the 11 anniversary (if you can call it that) of my good grandmother's death.

plus my dad had surgery yesterday- it was just knee replacement surgery- his knee wes like 90% shot or something... but his kidneys are really bad and now they are failing again.

I can back that one up as well.  My mother is 76 and alone, she refuses to move closer (it is all my fault for leaving her ::)).  She fell down the stairs and broke her nose and 2nd vertebrae (she could have been paralyzed); she walked up to the neighbors (and had them take her to the hospital).  I hate worrying about her, and I love her dearly, I want her to be closer to me and my kids.  I am the closest family member to her - 2 hours away

Looks like I am going to enjoy the first thunderstorm of the season right shortly.
It was beautiful out, the sun shining and a whopping 51 degrees, but now it is completely overcast and I can hear the rumbling of thunder in the distance.

Not much going on today. I feel like I have caught up on sleep, so now it is time to get the house work caught up. The Son did a great job while we were away. Except he didn't clean the bathroom. It's cool though because I am kind of anal that way, and prefer to do it myself. I also have a little bit of laundry to catch up on, and then dinner and such. I am going to try and relax between intervals.... yep. Not much doing today at all.

Last night, Carlos was in the kitchen and I came in and looked at him and said, "Grandpa." Then he said to me, "I don't understand what the big deal is. You guys can rewrite history if you want to..." and he kept going on and on and on. I looked at him and asked, "What ARE you talking about?" He told me he was referring to my family setting the story straight about my great-grandfather and Price Chopper grocery store. I said to him, "I'm talking about your daughter having a baby and I was calling YOU 'Grandpa'". We both had a good laugh at how we both were not only not on the wrong page but not even in the same book.

Talked to my mom today.
She was sick in January and ever since has not been feeling well. She goes to the doctor for every appointment, and even though she hates needles, has never missed her blood work schedule. They thought she was anemic, so she was taking iron pills. Next round of tests showed her iron sky high, so they took her off. All of her blood work comes back clear, except this last time where her platelets were slightly higher than normal. Apparently they did an ultrasound and found a gallstone, but they haven't done anything about that yet. She has a small appetite and tires easily. She also has constant nausea and upper heartburn that has yet to be diagnosed as acid reflux. She also has a pain on her lower left side that the doctors can't figure out. She has also lost about 40lbs since January.

My sister is distraught. She believes it to be cancer, however all of mom's screenings and tests come back negative. Mom isn't so much worried about it because she is seeing specialists and doing everything they tell her to do. I am trying not to worry and just pray for her.

General pottering today.  The school had a fundraiser at Barnes and Noble - the PTO gets a percentage of all sales when people show a voucher.

James had a party this afternoon.  While he was there we went shopping - bought a helmet for me to wear when I go skiing.  Dai wouldn't buy me one before because "you don't go fast enough on the beginner slopes to get a serious injury".  Hmm, he changed his mind this week.

We are going to Plan B for dinner - gourmet burger place in town.

We used to have a "Plan B" in Shelby, but they went out of business.  I'm glad Dai changed his mind about your helmet, better safe than sorry.


I'm almost done cleaning my parents' house.  Everything is done except for the last load of laundry (just sheets and towels).  I got clean sheets on Dad's bed, dusted and vacuumed his room, vacuumed the rest of the house, scrubbed 3 tile floors and the shower floor, dusted the living room, windexed the glass sliding doors, glass tables, and mirrors, cleaned both bathrooms, 2 loads of laundry, put away the clean dishes and cleaned my car windows while I was at it.  Just waiting for them to tell me when they want me to start dinner.

Oh, and check this.  My dad threw a fit when Mom told him he needed to change his dr appointment so I could go (I was on the phone with her and heard their whole conversation).  He got angry and said he didn't want or need me to go.  I figured I would have a battle on my hands when I got here.  Well, he changed his appointment.  It still isn't a convenient date, but at least he moved it to the afternoon so I can get over and get back home (it takes me about an hour and a half to get to Muskegon).  I was with Mom when she scheduled hers, so I know I should be able to make that one (unless they take more of my staff away!).

I'm a happy daughter (who is flattered and nervous that her parents want to move closer to her and would be happy if she moved in with them).    :o  I love them, but can't do it.  I don't think they would like living in Big Rapids, but I could certainly handle it if they lived in Grand Rapids (would be easier to visit and get to them if something happened).  But I really don't see me moving in with them (or next door to them).

lol  Too funny!  I'm free at the end of April, I think.  ;D

They do appreciate it.  They tell me so (a lot) and they tell me how great the house looks.  Dad wanted to take us out to dinner, but Mom's back is still out (about a week now) and she can't go, so I said I would cook.

Worked outside all of yesterday, it was sunny and around 58 degrees.  Got up in the morning and went shopping for a new grill, I and the girls picked out one had the store load it up.  Brought it home, hubby helped me get it out - Barely fit in the back of the truck.  Raked leaves out of the landscaping, and trimmed up shrubs, and started a small fire in our drive to dispose of leaves (out in the country we do not have leaf pick ups).  Got breezy late in the afternoon, so I stopped burning leaves as I did not want the wind to pick up and start the field on fire. Went into town - the ice cream place reopened, got some icecream.  On the way there - drove by sister-in-laws house, all the fire trucks are there - sure enough she was burning a small pile of leaves (in the middle of the drive), and her hubby came home and said he was going to start a real fire.  It started all the overgrowth on fire and spread - fast...  Our poor volunteer fire departments - there have been over 20 grass fires this week around here.  All because people are trying to burn over grown grass and growth (ditches, or set aside areas, or fencelines), wind blows it away and starts getting out of control.  Drove around and there was 5 more fires on the way home ::).  Glad I just had my small fire in the middle of the drive and stopped when it got breezy.  Didn't make any more work for the fire department. 

I was outside all day - no sun screen my face feels burnt (but does not look it) :-[

I am an idiot. I burnt the tips of my two middle fingers on my left hand.

I didn't think the dryer was doing what it is supposed to, because the lint trap was coming out clear. S I unplugged it and took the hose off the back. All clear. I plugged it back in and started it up again. Went to check a little while later and the towels were still really damp. So I reached in and touched the back of the drum, and voila!! The little bit that I touched gave me two nice little welts on my fingers. :\'( I am a complete moron! I can only use my index finger on my left hand now to type.

Ouchers...that can be quite painful. I hope they heal up asap.

My left ring finger started bleeding this morning; I think it's probably dry skin cells or something that's causing this. So right now I am typing slower than I normally do because said finger has a bandaid around the tip.

Gym then grocery shopping this morning.  At the end of the afternoon I went into school to help out with the after-school class.  Minor panic as I got there because the instructor had telephoned to say she'd been in slight car accident and might not make it to the lesson.  Quick rethink and we started off watching Happy Feet on DVD.  The teacher arrived after a bit and we did the class on making a native american clay pot.

Way to think on your feet (so to speak)!  Hope the instructor was ok after her accident.

I was over in the Pharmacy building all day (7:30-5:30, left the house at 6:45am) administering the Dental Hygiene Board Exams....morning session was 3.5 hrs, afternoon session was 4 hrs.  Went to the office to get the materials shipped out tomorrow and process the 398 survey responses clogging my inbox since Monday at 5:15pm.  I got a bunch of stuff done while I was there, including getting another survey out and starting the analysis of a different one, and got home at 7:30pm.  Made sure stuff is ready for class (minus the worksheets, have to do that at work) tomorrow and Thursday, now I can relax.  Needless to say I didn't bring any work home tonight.....  ::)

Parent teacher conferences tonight; still amazed that the parents I need to see - do not show up ::)  I had 9 parents come to conferences (I have 118) students - all 9 had A's in the classes.  Is there a common denominator  ???

Went to my first graders parent teacher conference and she is progressing well, her National Standardized tests she scored very high. Teacher says she is a joy to have in class.  I was disappointed to find out that they cannot do many science activities; since "No Child Left Behind" stresses Reading, Language, and Math.  Where's the application - you can apply them all with science. (My kid loves science projects ) :-[

Well, I just got finished watching Twilight. I was really curious to see what the big hype was about, and why every pre-teen to middle-aged woman I cross paths with says how attractive Edward Cullen is.

I don't think I breathed through the whole movie. He was.. gorgeous, breathtakingly so.

*Sigh*

I didn't want to feel like a giggling school girl after I watched it, but I do. I'm not so sure I'm going to read the books, though.

You MUST read the books...they are soooo good. You won't be able to put them down.

We had a meeting at the YMCA with 2 state reps(who ended up in session so they sent a representative) to talk about the proposed decimation of services to people with disabilities.  A lot of people showed up and put in our two cents, but I was still very bothered that more didn't show.  You always know for certain the ones that will absolutely be there.

Dagny I know your fear, never had surgery before I broke my foot and hardware put in.  Getting the hardware taken out was just a simple outpatient and quick and painless.    Think of it this way - you survived the hardware going in, taking it out is a breeze. :)

How was the recovery?  I keep having flashbacks from when it happened, I was in a cast for 6 weeks and it was awful.

Recovery was a breeze compared to the injury.  I was in a cast/immobilizer for 16 weeks and crutches and then the pins were removed - I just had to wear a bandage for 2 weeks (with a boot - because it was my foot)and crutches;  and then just the boot for 2 more weeks. I was on crutches from June 16 - surgery July 1st - till Nov.6th - worst days of my life :P

I had to wear the boot for 6 weeks after the cast.  I guess because mine was the ankle, it wasn't as difficult of a recovery as the foot.

I had a lisfranc fracture in my foot, and it was about as bad as it could have been.  I smashed a bone (about as big as a quarter) into around 25 pieces and then tore all the ligaments and tendons, so the whole foot was unstable.  And all I can remember, it was hella painful - and still is somewhat (but I can walk)-part of the reason my exercise regimen has never fully kicked in again (foot swells and hurts :-[ - hate it)

Good new is, the hardware removal should be easy for you. If you made it through the pain of the break, and the recovery, the hardware removal will be piece of cake.  Thumbs up!!!

Thanks for the vote of confidence.  My main worry is that it has been almost 11 years since it was put in.  How long was yours in before they removed it?

I haven't seen him yet, my appt Tuesday is the first time.  The doctor that put them in said they should be permanent but they have been known to cause problems so they can be removed.  He said his wife had them removed because they caused arthritis.  I have had more than one doctor that I have seen for the cellulitis flare ups say that it is probably from the hardware.  I guess we will have to see what the doctor says.

thank you all for keeping me in your thoughts...it really means a lot to me! It went better than I thought it would. I ended up settling a lesser amount with the attorney and he set up fair payments for me to follow...I didn't even need to end up talking to the judge. You don't know what a sigh of relief this is to me. :)


That is great news Erin. 8)

My friend Telma (the one who had a baby boy about a month ago) just rang to say she'd introduced herself to another friend, Hazel, in an embarassing way.  Telma was driving home and, as she slowed down for a red light, she nodded off very briefly.  Unfortunately it was long enough for her to hit Hazel's car!  :o  No real damage done but Telma is in a bit of a state.  I'm just going to e-mail Hazel and find out how she's doing.  :-\\

For those of you who are interested, my mother is finally home after spending a couple of weeks in the hospital, followed by a couple of weeks at a convalescent/nursing home-which she did nothing but complain about. If what my mother said was accurate, than she does have a legitimate complaint. However, my mother has a tendency of having her own sense of reality and not seeing things first hand myself, there is no way to know one way or the other. Anyway, she is now home-which she is EXTREMELY happy about.

My mom also complained alot when she was in the hospital.  It varied daily.  Instead of being thankful that there was some medical treatment to take advantage of, to save her life (a couple times in reality), she wasn't happy about this or that.  She says she'd never get the surgery done ever again.  :-\\  :-X  I don't know what she thinks the alternative would be, but well I've taken the stance of just let her complain as she gets some kind of thrill out of it.  ::)

damn this mucous  >:(  it's like I'm almost well, but there's this lingering stuff in my throat and chest that just wont leave and it'c causing me to still have to cough too much.  other than that, I'm feeling ok, just weakened a bit from the past week of being under seige by the virus.   

so more birthday celebration tomorrow  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/07/partytime.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/07/party.gif http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/07/partysmiley.gif  I celebrate my birthday with Lady Di's brother and his wife. all 3 of us are the same age so we'll go out for lunch & then back to our pad for cake , ice cream & presents. after that we have to cleverly get them all to leave by 5pm so we can take off to our poker game. wish us luck

wishing everyone have a good weekend  8)



Feel better Mike and have a good birthday. :)

It is a gorgeous day out today, so we are loading up the truck and driving down to Syracuse. Not for anything special. They have this beautiful park right outside of the Carousel Center, we might go check it out. Nasty has Spring Fever - so it is out and about we go. 8)

This morning I felt kind of panicky maybe it was cause of the wagons and the wagons were just overwhelming.I wanted to get all my work done and all the carts up but everytime you turn around,more wagons pop up.What I need to do is to take deep breaths and pace myself slowly so that way I don't have to get stressed out all the time.

okay, I start out emptying out my closet and I'm happy I'm doing something a little more productive with myself then playing video games all day.  I get it pretty much cleared and now I don't really care again.  I get negative thoughts like no one else cares and I wont get to do what I want or something.  I seemed to live all my life with feelings like this haunting me.  My guess is that after having all confedence drained as a child, I need it in everything I attempt to do these days.

Cat, I hope things continue to improve with your mom.  Keep me posted.

Mike, I hope you beat this thing finally.  I am still coughing, but the worst is over.  Feel 100% soon.  Hope your celebration was a good time!

Henk, congrats on the great news!  I hope it will be more of the same in 6 months.

We are supposed to get a lot of snow starting tomorrow afternoon.  Rained this evening/tonight.

I had a great day.  Got up (half hour later than wanted, but turned out ok), got oil changed and tires rotated.  Got to bank and took care of business there.  Went to gym for about an hour (more in a minute, because got an ego boost want to share), then got hair done, then home, then jazz.

So at the gym you sometimes see the same people.  Well, there is a guy who is either my age or a little older.  We have exchanged pleasantries for quite a few months, but never really talked or anything.  Yesterday he asked me my name.  Today we stood and talked for probably 30-45 mins (no idea really).  Talked football, basketball, kids, whatever.  He had seen Micah working out with me a couple weeks ago.  He told me that he thought she was my sister or friend.  Now, we all know that he was probably just being nice because this is the same guy who told me the other morning that it looked like I was losing weight when I was in a roomy hoodie and jeans so there is no way anyone could tell.  He also told me that he wouldn't have put me at anything older than early 30s.  I told him that I didn't care if he was just being nice, that it was really sweet to say and I appreciated it.  I didn't beat my personal best that I set Friday morning (2.55 miles in less than 30 mins), but I did get 2.5 miles in just over 30 mins (I didn't push myself obviously...tried to keep steady strides per min in 160s).  Also did ab machines, leg machines and ab exercises on the mat.  Will go back about noon tomorrow when they open.

Then at jazz tonight, I walked because I could.  I wasn't expecting Randy to offer a ride because I thought tonight is when he was bringing a kid up from GR so he a) wouldn't have room and b) have to get him home right after.  It was raining when things finished, but not that hard and while it wasn't warm, I had my warm coat and hoodie, so I would have been perfectly fine walking 2 blocks.  However, Tom insisted on giving me a ride.  So he cleared the seat off (I thought my car was bad!).  This is where it turns Laurel and Hardy.  Turns out he had left his lights on so his battery was dead.  I said no problem, I have cables in my trunk and live close by.  He walked with me and we drove back to his truck.  Now, because I had just gotten an oil change, I didn't anticipate any issues with getting my hood up and even though I drank more than I planned, I wasn't completely gone. Well, neither of us could get the hood open....  ::)  So I drove him to Curry's where we found the tow truck guy.  Drove him back to the truck and waited for the guy to show up with the charger.  Well, I tried to help!  ::)

Since my anxiety has been acting up again (really really badly), I called up the clinic to see if I could get an appointment with my doctor to up my Paxil dosage and get some more Xanax......next available appointment isn't until JUNE FRICKIN' TWENTY SEVENTH. ::)

Due to my feeling of well being changing, I took the initiative last week to get off my butt and actively seek professional help.  I found a psychologist that literally works around the corner from our place.  I saw her today.  I don't know what it is, but I have been majorly lucking out with all the doctors in this area.  She is extremely kind and understanding and just sort of lets me ramble on about everything.  The best part?  She's not listed with the state insurance, but she's giving me a deep discount on her rates until she sees if she can get my insurance to cover it.  If not, she'll just keep letting me pay the discount.

She also wants me to call up and DEMAND to see the doctor before June to get the Paxil upped and to get on anti-depressants because I am also exhibiting signs of severe depression.  Oh joy. :P

To everyone that has been sick, feeling bad, having family problems.....please know that I'm thinking of you and hoping that everything will turn out okay.

To Tam, Quirk, and Dagwood.....thank you for your insight, and I promise a PM is coming soon to explain what I have found.

I studied jazz at Cal State Northridge during my first semester there, back in Fall 2001. It was pretty interesting, but trying to know everything for the tests was pretty difficult. I still enjoyed it though. :)

Due to my feeling of well being changing, I took the initiative last week to get off my butt and actively seek professional help.  I found a psychologist that literally works around the corner from our place.  I saw her today.  I don't know what it is, but I have been majorly lucking out with all the doctors in this area.  She is extremely kind and understanding and just sort of lets me ramble on about everything.  The best part?  She's not listed with the state insurance, but she's giving me a deep discount on her rates until she sees if she can get my insurance to cover it.  If not, she'll just keep letting me pay the discount.

She also wants me to call up and DEMAND to see the doctor before June to get the Paxil upped and to get on anti-depressants because I am also exhibiting signs of severe depression.  Oh joy. :P

To everyone that has been sick, feeling bad, having family problems.....please know that I'm thinking of you and hoping that everything will turn out okay.

To Tam, Quirk, and Dagwood.....thank you for your insight, and I promise a PM is coming soon to explain what I have found.
Glad you got help when you needed it - it is tough I know.  I had to go back 6 times in a year to get my meds changed....  They figured it out my Birth Control made it worse (as one gets older, this can happen I guess) and had to go to a specific - non generic type (EXPENSIVE :o) )  I hated the anxiety - I would cry every night before bed - dreading the next day to come, and cry the whole way to school (I was teaching at the time - and doing my master's program).  I would want to leave and never go back; run away.... If I could just get through that part I would teach the whole day and be fine, till the night.... It made no sense, and I knew it did not - I was terrified of what I was doing to my kids.  The Depression was bad and I wanted to make sure I would see my kids grow up - I wanted to run away :-[

I have been med free for 1 year (just little bouts of anxiety and No depression) - there is help and they will find the right combination for you - You are in my thoughts, and if you need to talk I am here.

Hello Jessica, PLEASE fight to get into your doctor sooner.  Depression runs in my family - I lost my mother to it at 5, my son has suffered from it and I have fought it myself.  It has a funny way of taking over.  It you let the receptionist at your doctors office know that your therapist has said you are exihibiting the symptoms that you are she should get you in sooner.

Did a little more closet work. Had  my books in the closet and not have all my cd's,dvd's, and tapes in there instead of stacked somewhere.  Good with that

I saw something that I didn't want to touch growing in my garden and believe that Nettles are what is sprouting right now.  Not my first choice of plants, but better then a bare 15' dirt lot.  It is a host plant for a few butterflies and the Painted lady is one of them.  If that's what survives in my garden and thats what comes through here,  It's probably one of the best choices for me.  I had a lady ( Painted/West?) come and bask for a short time before taking off.  It was less then 3' away from me and would have made an excellent picture if I had my camera. Anyway cool with that

If y'all remember, a few days ago I said I burnt my fingers on my dryer...

So, Nasty and The Son were doing laundry yesterday and it seemed to take forever for everything to dry.
I opened up the back of the dryer today, cleaned it all out, cleaned out the air outtake hose, and the ventilation duct.
Put everything back together except the duct hose, and ran the dryer. Heat comes out and blows normal.

My question is this:
I have never noticed before if the heating coil in the drum glows red. It was glowing bright red when I tested it today, and smelled like something was burning (Although it was probably because I cleaned the extra lint out). It is normal for the coil to glow red?

I think my dryer might be biting the dust. At any rate, it is currently unplugged because if something is wrong with it I don't want it to burn the house down. I called the appliance repaiur shop and they told me $60 just to come out and then they don't wave the charge if I hire them to fix it. ::) Looking at replacement parts online, it would almost make more sense for us to buy a new dryer than try and get this one fixed. It is 4 years old and a Roper <- which is probably the first mistake we made - but it has worked great.

Any thoughts?

Subject: Re: How ya doing? It's March!

Written By: Jessica on 03/30/09 at 10:42 pm

The heating coil does glow red when it's at its peak.  If it is working fine now, it probably just needed to be cleaned out.  I would, however, keep it unplugged when not in use.  We used to do the same thing in California because the dryer was older and the wiring faulty.

If it starts acting too wonky though, just replace it.  Don't try and get it fixed.  Dryers aren't that expensive anymore.

Not altogether sure what problems you've been having.  I must have missed those posts.  :-[

Have the docs said it is definitely the metalwork in your leg/ankle?  Or is it something muscular that could be fixed with physio/exercise?

My main problem is cellulitis.  This last time the infection has been awful...more than two weeks and it is still hanging on.  It made me sicker than a dog two weeks ago.  My leg is also swollen to 3 times its normal size and the swelling won't go down because I don't have the free time to be able to lay around with my foot up for weeks.  Every doctor I have gone to about this has said it is probably the hardware.

I'd forgotten about the cellulitis.  I had read your posts on it.

If completing the course of prescribed anti-biotics doesn't cure it, it does sound as though the metalwork could be the continuing source of infection.  I know the thought of surgery must be a bit scarey but the alternative is to carry on as you have been doing and risk this becoming chronic (or developing into something worse).

Is the surgeon satisfied that you no longer need the extra support in your ankle?  Would replacing the parts be an option?

I hope you are able to find the answers today

Well, it wasn't the hardware.  The doc did an xray and the hardware looks fine.  He thinks it has something to do with my veins.  I should probably go see a vein specialist.  He said something about a sock to help.  I guess my veins are enlarged.  All the fluid pools in the leg and the blood gets into the tissue and I get an infection.  I don't know...I just want it fixed.

We got 2 or 3% raises (used to be COLA adjustments) last fall.  I am guessing that only the Pres and a few VPs will get anything this year since they are taking another 6% from our budget (which means if I lose another staff person I'm a one person show).  We haven't had merit pay for years!

That's fantastic news Erin. That must be a weight off your mind ....you must feel stoked!  Certainly a far cry from the nervous, fearful post you made regarding possible life events last week or so.  :)

Sort of like logging in to the boards everyday!  ;)  No, seriously, there really is nothing quite as satisfying as being of assistance to others and feeling like you make a difference.

just an FYI...I'm still sick, but it's just a cough and congestion and now Lady Di's getting sick and it's my fault  :(  I hope she doesn't get it as bad as I had it. It's been 2 weeks exactly for me, and I predict at least another 2 weeks until I'm 100%.  we had dinner with Julie Sunday and it was wonderful. We picked her up in San Jose and went to the Cheesecake Factory. I had the fish tacos and they totally rocked!  and of course we had cheesecake. I like that place  :)  anyways, I am so proud of Julie because she spent her spring break on a mission trip to Compton where her team of twenty somthing young people and several other teams worked with disadvantaged youth & former gang kids who are trying to turn their lives around. they tutored them and worked with them in other ways. they also helped/fed homeless people at a known homeless persons park. Volunteering her time and effort to help others truly honors me & Lady Di.

no I did not and Lady Di is on my ass for not being more conscientious about things like that, like washing my hands often and not touching common food stuff without washing.

I find using a straightened out paper clip can help with the solid particles from under the keys.

Yes, Montreal (1976) was the only summer Olympics where the host country didn't win a gold medal.  ;)
We do better at winter sports...but all most people care about here is that Canada HAS TO win the gold medal in Hockey otherwise...it will be a horror...THE HORROR!
