I wrote what has been going on w/ me, then realized I had misspelled February, so I thought I copied what I had written, then deleted it, but it wasn't copied, & I don't have the energy to write it again...

 

all for the L, S, & HE!

 

Vallee, Patricia, Brenda, Darla & Wula!

Thanks for starting this thread Sandra - thought I had and realized I hadn't -

Darla - I suggested that though sometimes they can't the the insurance companies - I lost t2 weeks of work due to my accident - they paid for months of chiropractic work and to get my bills paid but said the accident wasn't bad enough for me to have taken any time off from work - we appealed the pain and suffering - I couldn't sleep because my back hurt so much - but they still denied it - I pray she has better luck. 

Brenda - thanks for your kind words - had to stay up for my husband a bit longer than I wanted last night - am just tired.

Anyway - foot hurting more and wrenched my back with the dog this morning - but have to get the scooter out and take hubby out today.  February isn't starting out so well - which means it can only get better!  Here is a watercolor I sold awhile back.

Sandra - hope you are feeling better and

Pat - pray you aren't hurt too badly from your fall.

Sandra you really need all the L,S and HE you can get, so here it comes!

Val I hope it all works out for your daughter. I see your foot is still hurting, is there nothing you can do about that? Things will get better, it will soon be Spring! Good picture you painted, are you still painting now? Has Pat had another fall?

Hugs to both of you!

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here.  It's 10:30 am as I start this and already 62F so I expect we're in for another warm day. Ray ordered a couple things from the Publisher's Clearing House deal ~ he got himself a chopper and got me a set of 4 pair of gemstone earrings. Wasn't that sweet of him? The gemstones are black onyx, red jasper or agate, rose quartz, and a green pair that I didn't know {jade maybe}. I don't wear green so I gave the green pair to my neighbor and she loved them! Nothing much else going on here, just my usual. I do have my cat, Kona, going nuts at the end of our computer desk b'cuz BabyFace, my bearded dragon, is moving around in his habitat {which is on a dresser at the end of the  computer desk}. Oh, I won a trivia contest at my apartment complex and got a $25 HEB gift card {HEB is a Texas based grocery store}! The apartment office puts out a little "newletter" {one page of stuff like b'days, goings-on around the complex, etc} and for February {they put on the door yesterday} they listed 6 trivia questions about Valentine's Day {what was written on the first valentine, when was the first valentine and where can it be seen, when were the "sweethearts" candy first created, who invented the first Valentine's Day candy box and when, etc}. The first person to turn in all the right answers won and I did it!

 

Brenda, great to see you here. Glad it's stopped raining.

 

Sandra, thanks for starting the new thread. Sorry about you lost post. Thanks for the L, S, and extra HE; I send the same back at you. I think it's great that you used Val's painting to start us off.

 

Val, sorry about your accident and the troubles you had in settling it. I too hope your daughter has better luck with everything. A sprained spine is going to give her alot of pain. Sorry you had to stay up with your husband and are tired. Also sorry that you wrenched your back walking Baby. Will keep you in my prayers and send you some healing energy.

 

Pat, miss you and hope to see you soon. Hope you're doing okay from your fall and that nothing serious is going on.

 

Take care and have a fantastic day.

Brenda - yes my foot is hurting ALOT!   I don't know why and there really is nothing anyone can do - and my back still hurts but going to the chiropractor Monday - hope it helps.  Hubby fell back asleep this morning - rare - I should have also can't even think - but had already been up for 3 1/2 hours ...no Pat didn't fll again though unsure where she is -

Darla - congrats on the trivia - not surprised you won - and great Ray got the ear-rings - and yes my daughter who already had chronic pain is in worse pain - I pray she takes advantage of some medical help - but she is so overwhelmed unsure what she will do - it just makes me cry - literally - I am too empathic -

Sandra - hope you are feeling better - how is the roommate situation?

Oh - no - am not still painting - have thought about it - but can't sell anything it seems much - but I keep trying - here's aniother painting though.

Maybe you should get a X Ray done on your foot Val. Hope you get some relief for your back, also hope your daughter gets help for her pain. Good painting, I like it! Try and get more sleep.

Hi everyone!  I am here but not in the mood to talk too much.  Just don't feel much like it lately.  I feel too dizzy and full of pain.  I just can't keep complaining because everyone here is in the same type of boat.  Not really down, I still have the positive attitude but the pain keeps me from being socialable.

Love your paintings Val!  Wishing all the best for everyone else!  Talk to you all later when things are feeling better for me!!  Hugz to everyone!

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Ray went to HEB and got a bunch of frozen fruit for the fruit smoothies he makes as well as some other groceries. Not much going on. Was up late reading last night and slept in this morning. Not much going on here, just my usual. Hope everyone gets an early Spring. Thanks to everyone for the trivia contest congratulations.

 

Brenda, great to see you here.

 

Sandra, you're welcome for L, S, and HE. Sending more your way. Thank you for the L, S, and HE you sent.

 

Val, sorry about your back and foot. It's good you're going to the chiropractor. Would an MRI of your foot help tell the doctor what is going on with it? Of course, MRIs are expensive even with insurance so it might not be feasible. I'm sorry that Julie is in worse pain. Will keep you both in my prayers and send healing energy y'all's way. Love your painting today. It's too bad you're not still painting. Ray used to paint. We have several of his paintings hanging on our wall. The weird thing about his painting is that he's colorblind but he made all the colors work together.

 

Pat, so sorry you're in so much pain. As far as I'm concerned you can "complain" all you want as you have to have someone to talk to about it and we're your friends. I'm glad you're keeping a positive attitude as that's important. Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers and that I'm sending healing energy your way.

 

Take care and have a fantastic day.

Valle, another beautiful painting!

 

Roommate is out except for a few things, should be gone tomorrow, I hope.  Landlord changed the lock.  New roommate moved in who used to rent a room in the apt. upstairs.& seems very easy-going.  He's got some medical issues he hopes to take care of in the 2-3 months he plans to stay.  It's been a long day, so I'm off to bed.  I'm sorry to hear about all of your pain & suffering, & pray that it improves soon!

 

all for the L, S, & HE!

Sandra - if I remember will try and call again otoday - missed you yesterday.  Glad about the roomate.

Brenda - the foot was X-rayed and did lay down for 40 minutes yesterday morning - then we spoke on Skype with my husband's ex and daughter for a bit so worked less - took a pain pill before taking out the dog this AM - glad I did - she tried to chase 2 cats - below is the sunrise -

Darla - I have my photographs and paintings all over the house - they are too expensive to frame - so have to sell unframed but can sell inexpnsive that way - trying hard to sell some  things to help the energy flow - MRI would be create but not financially feasible - so have it up with heat - just frustrating because was getting better but something IS wrong with it - makes it difficult to do any errands now - takes so much energy and hurts - think I am stuck with the pain pills again - hubby sees MD on the 12th - I'll talk to her - she's my MD too . 

Daughter hanging in there  = already spoke to a lawyer so pray she can get the help she needs -

Pat - whenever you want to talk - great - thanks for stopping by.  Was missing you !

Happy Sunday!  Time to walk up hubby.

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Yesterday our son came over with his new girlfriend and our grandson, he took us out to a late lunch. We went to a steak house and had a fantastic meal {I got steak and shrimp!}, I even got desert to bring home! The new girlfriend was very nice and it was great to see our grandson {he's 2}. When we  were coming back from lunch and walking up to our place, he yelled out "Nana's house"! We had a couple hours notice before our son came over so I dusted and picked up cat toys while Ray vacuumed and picked up the living room. Not much else going on here, just my usual. It's shortly after 11:00am and it's 66F on our porch.

 

Sandra, glad to hear about the roommate situation. Hope this new guy works out. Thanks for the L, S, and HE; I wish the same back at ya.

 

Brenda, great to see you here. Hope you have a wonderful day too.

 

Val, Ray's paintings aren't framed either. I think selling them unframed works b'cuz then the person can choose their own frame. I'm so glad Julie contacted an attorney. I think that'll be her best bet. Glad you took that pain pill before walking Baby. Too bad, an MRI is not feasible. It sounds like you could really use one. Yes, you should really talk to your doctor about your foot. Beautiful picture today.

 

Pat, miss you. Hope all's okay and that we'll see you soon.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Thanks guys - on the way to the chiropractor -

Don't think there is much to do about the foot but keep it up a lot - surgery is out of the question.  Will post a jigsaw puzzle and be back later -

Hi guys! I'm back!

The last couple of days have been tough on me mentally.  Not too sure why and I really don't feel like speculateing right now why.  Just glad that I feel much better.  Yesterday I did 5 loads of laundry (front loader) trying to catch up because I have been going out the last few days.  That's what happens when we get paid.  We run around shopping trying to get the sales on things.  So the house work has to take a back seat.  Can't keep things up like I used to.  Not only am I not a spring chicken any more (LOL) but with all my health issues I have to either do house work or shopping.  Not both.

My hernias are hurting me today but I really need to get some things done.  Oh well.  That's life, right?  At least I am on the green side of the grass right?  lol Or the white side of the snow!  LOL!

Val - As always, love your paintings!  I just love green and the moon just adds a special touch!  I feel bad for your pain.  I am way too empathetic.  I could cry when I hear of all the suffering from you all!

Brenda - Hi ya there!  What's new with you?  Not much of a talker I see.  Have to start telling us a bit more of what's going on with you.  Glad for all your concern over me.  Thanks!  I feel truly humbled.  You are such a caring soul!

Darla - So glad you had a wonderful visit with you son, grandson and the new girlfriend.  Would love to have steak right now - it's 10:40 a.m. right now.  Will wait until it warms up and I can BBQ the steak.  So much better when we can cook it on the BBQ!.

Sandra - Glad you have a new roommate!  Now maybe home time will stable out.  You are such an angel to send out all the hugs, serenity and healing power to each of us every day!  Sending the same to you!

Wishing you all a wonderful day!  Hope things go well today for everyone, myself included!  lol.   I'll see you here again tomorrow, same time, same bat channell (for those old enough to remember the reference)!.  Catch you later guys!!

Pat you posted when I was writing mine. I realized I forgot to say I missed you and I'm sorry for that. Then I tried adding in a note to you under "edit post" but it didn't work. First, let me ask you something. Awhile back I sent you an e-mail to your regular e-mail address. Did you ever get it or was it lost in cyber space? Sorry you've had such a rough past couple days. Don't stress it as it happens to all of us. Just know that you can talk about it here or I'll send you another e-mail and you can always e-mail me. I'm sure the others would listen as well. Sorry to hear about your hernias. Hope they heal up soon and stop giving you problems. Ray had a hiatal hernia {right at his belly button}. Well one day a little over a 1.5 years ago he sneezed really hard and the hernia became incarcerated and they had to do emergency surgery! They thought they were going to have to remove part of his bowel but it turned out that they didn't have to. It was a very tense situation but he healed up nicely and now doesn't have to worry about the hernia bothering him. It was very nice seeing my son and grandson and meeting th enew girlfriend. My son lives in town {at least til March when he's being transferred to Georgia, he's in the Army} but we don't see him often enough as far as I'm concerned. As for my grandson, he lives with his mother in Floresville {a small town about 30-40 minutes away} and I don't get to see him that much either. I don't know what we're going to do when my son leaves in March. Take care and have a fantastic day.

ahjpsg" width=Hello everyone.  Long time no see.  I am back and I am sick too.  Join the group   I am waiting for my blood tests and knees xrays etc  Some minsunderstanded (groups) or??  I am myself and won't change and that bothers some and you nned only 2 to reject, and I am very hurted, so my mental I want to keep it, no ned of a depression.  But I go back to these groups it is the same ones, but most of them are okay, they don't make any comment on being myself.  But the one who doesn't know what is Respect, is very very like a devil to me.  I think she is herself depressed.  Hello Brenda, nice to meet you.  Sorry, I will not name you all, my memory is making some jokes these days.  I am happy to be back and Sandra for L, S and D.  Thanks dear Vallee of the Roses for these paintings as usual you are an artist I like.  Your paintings are the .... of you.  I miss some words right now.  I will probably be back later.

Be well everyone.

Life is not easy for me and I can see there are others here.

So, we are all connected but I think many don't know what's that mean.

Whatever the race, the religion, we have to love each one another.  I am not a believer for a couple of days. I can't do nothing.

Hugs to you all, good night and L, S, & He. 

Marie an old hippie, I am so many things. lol.

Marie, it's good to see you!  I hope you feel better soon!    How is Dave?

 

I just finished re-reading the paranormal romance "Old Friends" by Constance O'Day-Flannery.  I have folded down many corners, marked many sentences & paragraphs that I like.  The main female character (Claire) had been sexually abused by her step-brother, then found out he was sexually abusing his daughter, (Beth).

Then I saw a female ex-co-worker (Bea) at the bus stop.  When I asked her where she was going, she told me she was going to therapy for having been sexually abused by her husband & her father.  I read a little from my book.after she said yes.  Claire said to Beth:  "I know how you feel about what was being done to you by your father... because it was done to me too, when I was about your age.  I know how scary it is, how bad you feel, how alone you think you are & you don't know how to stop it.  You didn't do anything wrong, no matter what you were told or what you felt.  You're a little girl & someone who was supposed to protect you didn't do that.  Your father was sick in his head.  He wasn't thinking right, the way other fathers do.  Something was wrong w/ him, not you.  None of it was your fault.  Everything that happened was because he made the wrong choices.  Beth asks, "Because he was sick?"  Claire responds, "Yes.  Something happened inside of him that made him sick.  If he wasn't sick, he would have done everything he could do to protect you.  You deserved to be protected & loved the right way, the way fathers who aren't sick in their minds love their daughters."  A little while later Beth asks, about her father who had just died, "Do you think my father is in heaven?"  Claire said she didn't know.  Beth said, "I hope so.  I don't think it would be fair if God didn't let him in . . . because he was sick."  So Beth forgave him.  Claire was learning that people's fear of loss drive them out of balance, into being sick (insanity).  Bea said she wanted to get the book & I reviewed the title & author w/ her.  (I should have given her my copy, & I will if I see her soon & get another copy myself.)

 

all for the L, S, & HE!

Lots to read -

Pat - understand about the getting paid - have to take my husband out for the monthly errands - we went out Friday to get his money but he wants to go to Sam's CLub and a few other stores today soo will get his scooter out again.  Chiro seemed to help lower back - slept through most of the night for  change but upper back real tight still and foot is what it is.

Marie - glad to see you here - you have been missed -thanks for the comment on my paintings - been posting them because someone in some group asked me to - can't remember either - hope your tests all come out OK.  Love the hands.

Brenda - don't worry about the post - it happens -

Darla - glad Ray's hernia wasn't worse- I think Pat has more than 1...   I had the other kind and still to this day hurts but only ocassionally -

Sandra - thanks for all the love and light and healing energy

Just realized I am tired - almost time to wake up hubby - need to go to bed early tonight if I can. 

Hope all having a great Tuesday!

Good morning/afternoon, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. It's just before noon as I start this {and will probably be after noon as I finish} and it's already 75F on our porch so looks like we're in for another warm day. Was up late last night reading and up early reading again. Not much going on here, just my usual.

 

Brenda, great to see you here. Thanks for the sweet words. I love coming to this group and feel like I've made some good friends here.

 

Marie, nice to meet you. Sorry that you're sick. Hope the tests come back in the most positive of ways. Sorry too that you're having problems with people accepting you. That's always hard to deal with. Hope it all works out. I've found that this group accepts people quite wonderfully.

 

Sandra, what a book! Quite a tough subject to write about. However, it sounds like the author did well by it. I myself was molested as a child for several years by my mom's second husband. It lasted until my grandmother guessed something was going on and I finally told. My mom divorced him soon after. I find myself telling lots of things in this group, I hope y'all don't mind. Thanks for the L, S, and extra HE; sending the same back at ya.

 

Val, glad the chiropractor helped your lower back though I'm sorry to hear about your upper back. I know how tough it can be to have your upper back hurt as that where I broke mine. Sorry about your foot too. Hopefully when you see the doctor about something can be done. Thanks for the comments on Ray's hernia. Pat must be in quite a bit of pain if she has more than one and they are acting up as I watched Ray suffer for years with it before it got bad on him. Beautiful painting, you're so very talented.

 

Pat, miss you. Hope you're doing alright and to see you soon.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

All the L, S, & HE you all are sending me has definately helped!  I had much more energy today & feel good about spending a couple hours cleaning & re-organizing my room!    It's too bad the memory of how good it feels after cleaning is done doesn't convince me to just do it! 

 

Vallee, another great painting!  I'm sorry you're hurting! 

 

Darla, I'm so glad you feel comfortable sharing about your abuse...

Hi Wula - nice to see you here -

Brenda - I forget what watercolors I have already posted - I need to keep it short right now -

Real tired - had a rough night on the phone with my daughter -

Glycerinsoaps113012003 photo Glycerinsoaps113012003-1.jpg

Actually these already sold - having a 15% sale off all soaps this week - so also busy promoting!  Can't really clean with my foot right now  so have to do something!

Hope all have a great day!

Val - Glad to know that your soaps are selling.  They do look beautiful!  Too bad your foot won't heal.  At least you have something to keep you busy.  Too bad about your daughter's situation though.  It can be a very trying time for the both of you.  You are both in my thoughts and prayers as is Obbie.

Brenda - Well, a good morning to you!  A big hug back to you too!  I am glad that you like coming here.  It is a woonderful site.  The best one as far as I am concerned!!

Wula - Missed you!  Just remember it's not quantity, it's quality that counts.  I am sure that I speak for all of us when I say that you are never far from our thoughts and hearts.  Glad to hear from you when ever you do get the chance though.  Hope things are going well for you. Take care and perhaps we will hear more from you soon!  Hugz!

Darla - Happy to hear that you/Ray won some money!  That's always a welcome change from having to pay it out.  Then again you did pay it out to get the new shoes!  lol.  Good for you!!  I love new shoes, especially new sandals.  I can only wear low shoes now due to my state of health (being dizzy all the time).  That's ok thoough, I am too old and over weight to wear heels any how.  Plus those darn things just ruin your feet!  Actually I like going bare feet myself at home in the summer that is.

Sandra - Glad you had more energy to spend organizing and cleaning your room.  I need to organize things but that is not my best forte so they say.  I can clean but organizing is somewhat eludes me.  Don't get me wrong, I do have a place for everything and everything in it's place but paper work just befuddles me!!!  LOL!

So I had one doozy of a fall yesterday.  Normally I fall onto the couch, loveseat, bed, or just lean into the wall.  Not yesterday. No no no.  I went to check the mail and turned the corner and fell smack! face first into the corner of the wall and fell down onto the shovel and into the clothes closet.  I actually started to cry (such a baby - I don't normally cry when I fall) and had to ask for help to get up.  Darn it all if it didn't hurt like you know what!!  So here I am crying like a new born babe while G is holding me and my face is killing me and I said to him that if I bruise (which I hardly ever!) that I am going to tell people he did it and started laughing  LOL!!  Have to laugh!  That's me.  Well so now it's morning and my face is only slightly swollen but you can only see it if I tell you and there is NO bruise but it is sore to touch, my leg is a little swollen up, (NO bruise, surprise!), but there is a small bruise (what?) on my right (UHM) chest area, if you know what I mean.  

I actually feel like I have been hit by a truck and what do I have to show for it?  Nothing!!  LOL!  Not as if I am going to tell my sad story and show off my little bruise on my boob to anyone!  LMAO!!!  So I was talking to my friend on the phone last night telling her this story just laughing my head off and she said I was nuts for laughing at it.  I said why?  It's over, I'm not really hurt that bad, it could have been a lot worse - I could have broken my nose, could have hit my eye on the handle of the shovel etc.  So it was ok to laugh.  Laughter IS indeed the best medicine folks.  End of story.

Ok, enough for now.  Wishing you all a fantastic day.  It is Wednesday so I am off to visit the in-laws this afternoon in this winter wonderland with the big fluffy snowflakes!  See you tomorrow in the morning!!

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Ray is getting sick ~ either a cold or the flu, don't know yet. WE have to be careful I don't catch whatever it is though I've had my flu shot. Not much going on here, just my usual.

 

Sandra, glad you had extra energy today and were able to clean and re-organize your room. Thanks for the L, S, and extra HE; sending the same back at ya.

 

Brenda, we are lucky to have such a good group. Great to see you here.

 

Wula, I think I speak for everyone when I say, just come when you can. We'll miss you when you're not here.

 

Val, hope Julie's doing alright. Keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers. Sorry you're still having problems with your foot. I too love going barefoot and can Glad you sold some soaps. Great picture, very pretty soaps; it's no wonder that they sold.

 

Pat, I too love going barefoot and can most often be found that way unless I'm going out. I also love sandals and can only wear flats. I found th ebest pair of gladiator sandals on e-Bay a couple  summers back and they're my favorite shoes! They're so comfortable that I can stay in them for hours without the urge to kick them off and go barefoot! At one time my back was in remission enough for me to wear heels but those days are long gone and the only thing I wear now are flats; my closet consists of 2 pair of moccassins {an ankle pair and a knee-high pair}, my gladiator sandals, flip flops {for the pool}, ankle boots, and tennis shoes {an old, cheap pair right now til I get my new ones}. The cool thing about my new tennis shoes is that I got them on The Animal Rescue Site so they "fed" needy cats and dogs and have paw prints on them.

I'm so sorry that you had another fall and it does sound like a doozy. I'm sur eyou're in alot of pain despite the bruises not showing up. You're right in that it is good to be able to laugh about it. Just goes to show it's not getting you down.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hugs all around....

Val hope things get sorted out with your daughter. Like the soaps hope they go on selling well. I wish there was something that could be done for your foot, it's been a long time since it happened.

Pat not again, I am glad you were not badly hurt and you are able to laugh about it...what's the saying I will either laugh or I will cry!! I guess you need all the hugs you can get now.....sending a few more. Have a good visit with the in-laws, take care.

Darla hope Ray just has a cold, although that's bad enough. Stay well.

Good evening everyone.  Sorry to hear about your fall, Patricia.  Val, I have to add your beautiful painting on my Page asap.  I can't be long it is a good thing lol, I use to write so many details.  I read fast all of you and it seems you are okay.  No big problems.  It is so cold here.  It is a big change here, and I am thinking more.  So I better come here to talk to my true friends.  I phone to my Doctor Office because no nothing and the receptionist told me it could take 2 or 3 weeks before having the results.  I am always tired and I try to not think about.  I feel to stay in bed all the time.  Enough complaining.   Love you all and be well, Marie

Lots to read - am on slow motion today again - still trying to catch up on sleep - daughter seems to be doing better - a lot of crap went on and still is in her life but she is trying to do what she needs - on the way to the djuster for the car accident and then the chiropractor later today and then she can talk to the lawyer - and other things - so hope she keeps on this path.



Brenda - am keeping my foot up and heat on it and yes it was last October!  Been too long but finacnes are tight for everyone and a CSCAN is too expensive.



Marie - great to see you here but sorry you have not been feeling well.



Pat- always have loved your sense of humor - yesterday I was getting upset with someone and then they wrote something - we were chatting on FB - and I had to laugh.....    so glad you weren't hurt worse. 



Darla - thanks for the prayers- wish I could sell more - I get exhausted every day promoting and maybe 1 or 2 sales a month - not  enough for medical bills.


Sandra - thanks for all your healing energy always - and hosting this group - it has truly blossomed.

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Not much going on here, just my usual. Do have to water plants later today.

 

Brenda, thanks for the thoughts on Ray. I too am hoping it's just a cold and it'll pass soon. He's feeling better today than he was so maybe he'll heal quickly.

 

Marie, sorry you're not feeling well and are tired all the time. I hopppe th ebloodwork comes in soon and doesn't take the 2-3 weeks the receptionist said it would. That just seems like a very long time to me.

 

Sandra, thanks for the hugs and L, S, and extra HE ~ same back at ya.

 

Val, sounds like you really need to rest. Glad your daughter's doing a bit better. Hope she gets everything done that she needs to. Keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers. I remember when you hurt your foot b'cuz it was right before I broke mine. I'm so sorry that yours is still giving you problems. Maybe you could work out a payment plan for a CScan or MRI of your foot if you really need one. Just an idea b'cuz I want you to get better. Sorry you don't have more sales. Beautiful painting.

 

Pat and Wula, miss y'all.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hello everyone.  Going to keep it short today.  Can't write an essay every day!  LOL!  Not much new today.  Feeling very tired.  Must be the fibro kicking in big time.  Plus I am feeling sore in all sorts os places.  I blame it on the fall.  At least I am not too terribly sore, just stiff, if you know what I mean.  

Have lots to do but don't have the energy or the will to do any of it.  Not to worry.  I will push myself and get at least some of it done, like the laundry & dinne, andr of course the dishes.  Maybe I will do some reading or something of interest.  Glad to make you laugh Val.  I am a very firm believer that laughter is good for the soul.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and enjoyable day.  Hugz to all.............

Val we must have posted at the same time. Hope your daughter had a better day today, now get some sleep! I like the painting.

Pat your back! Don't go trying to do too much, put your feet up and read awhile.... get a good nights sleep if you can.

Hugs for both of you.

Hello everyone!  Not much to say this morning but that never stoped me before!  

Well, I only have a few things to say really.  Today I have to take my son to the bank and perhaps G and I will head out and do something.  Not sure what.  Later we plan on having a cribbage tournament between ourselves.  Best 3 out of 5 gets to pick what we our doing this Saturday.  He thinks he is going to win.  Secretly, and don't tell him, I think he is right!  He is better at crib than I am that's why we don't play Scrabble!  LMAO!!!  Get it!!  I beat him hand down at Scrabble without even having to try.  He gave up playing that with me a long long time ago.  He doesn't play chess either but my son does.  Sometimes we play.


My son told me he used to think he was a poor chess player because I kept beating him all the time.  Then he started to play all his friends and he beat every one of them.  He came to the conclusion that I am just a good (maybe even a decent) chess player.  I play for fun.  Never take any game serious.

I also pulled out some pumpkin that I cooked and froze this last fall.  I want to do some baking.  Perhaps I will make some pumpking muffins.  The neighbors must be missing my baking by now!  LOL!

Hope everyone is thinking positive thoughts and trying to remain happy.  Sometimes it is hard, I know.  Wishing everyone a wonderful day!  Peace & Light to you all my friends....

Thanks Sandra - takes both of us and the people in the group to make it a good group!!!    SO thank you everyone.

Darla - fell asleep for an hour on the cuch yesterday - of course whenI awoke the ddodg was at my feet and the cat on me - only sleep during the day when REALLY tired. Keeping foot up as much as can and heat on it - we'll see..... daughter had a good day yesterday - has to go back to the chiropractor Tuesday for more tests.

Marie - let us know when the bloodwork comes back.

Pat - you always make me laugh - you are funny.

Brenda - glad you like the painting - a bit different -

Need to go out but cold out - and been real busy and still lots of messages.

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Have an application to process for MCRA {the Maine Coon rescue group I volunteer with}. I'm unsure about this one as she wants a baby who is declawed. Not much else going on here, just my usual. I do need to do some laundry today.

 

Brenda, thanks for the thoughts on Ray. I'm glad it's not the flu too.

 

Pat, I'm sure the fall does have you sore in all kinds of places. You should take it easy and read a book or something rather than overdoing with chores. Chores can always wait, they'll be there tomorrow or the next day. You are so funny. Seriously though, game night is a good thing. I'm glad y'all do it. I remember when our kids were young Ray and I played board games with them at night rather than tv. In fact, for awhile we didn't even have a tv. I'm glad your son found out he could play chess after all, he just can't beat his mom! Have fun baking ~ pumpkin muffins sound wonderful.

 

Sandra, thanks for hugs and the L, S, and extra HE ~ sending the same back at ya.

 

Val, glad you fell asleep on th ecouch for awhile. I'm sure you needed the sleep. I think it's cool that Baby was there at your feet and your cat was lying on top of you. Animals are great at sleeping with us. Ray even calls one of our cats, Cinder, his "bluenesta" {a take from Lunesta} b'cuz everytime Cinder comes to lay on him he goes to sleep! Love your picture today ~ the scene is beautiful and the way you framed it is perfect.

 

Marie and Wula, miss y'all.

Patricia, why don't you & G learn a new game?  I used to play Scrabble w/ my ex & miss playing...  It's good that you never take a game seriously, it's better that way. 

Pumpkin muffins - yumm!  And it's nice of you to give homebaked treats to your neighbors!

Vallee, gorgeous pic!  What happened w/ Julie & the adjustor & lawyer?

 

Patricia, I hope you are recovering well from that fall!


Darla, I'm glad Ray is feeling better!

Brenda - I am NEVER bored!

Darla - new PhotoBucket frames - they have changed them - and still learning how top put my name at the bottom - didn't work.

The adjustor needs the police report and then she won't have to pay the deductible or the rental while the car is getting fixed - don't have the lawyer actually yet - has to return to the chiro Monday to finish some tests and then he will call the law firm and she'll be given a lawyer - her divorce lawyer she paid off and Mondy he goes and files paperwork so the child support comes out of his check automatically - meanwhile she sees a back doctor on Tuesday and has been leaving messages with people to see if she can ove her mobile home and hopefully she called this counseling place last night - I haven't spoken to her yet  today - David filed a court paper with child services saying she is a drug addict and gives the kids drugs and doesn't feed them and beats then so child services spoke to the 2 boys and they denied it all - hopefully will make Davi look stupid - her lawyer said she won't lose the kids and that she can file for full custody - it is a mess.  Another long night.

Val it was just "one of those days" Your right it is a mess but hopefully in a few days it will be sorted. It sounds as if your daughter is well rid of David, he is sick!! Hugs!

Good morning/afternoon {it's 11:44am as I begin but may well be after noon before I finish}, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Ray's doing a brake job on the car. I worked that application for MCRA yesterday and did the write-up this morning. I also handled several MCRA e-mails yesterday. So I was on the computer from about 10:00 am til after 7:00 pm! And I didn't even get to sign petitions or comment on stories. So far, not much going on today though I did do some stuff for MCRA. Mostly though just my usual.

 

Sandra, great idea for Pat and G to learn a new game!. Thanks for the hugs and the L, S, and extra HE ~ sending the same back at you.

 

Val, sounds like Julie really has alot going on and it does sound like a mess. I agree with Brenda that she is well rid of David. It'll be good when she has the child support coming directly to her out of his paycheck. I hope she gets full custody and that they drop the investigation about her. I also hope that she gets an attorney for the car accident and gets things going there so she's not paying for anything. Keeping both you and Julie in my thoughts and prayers.

I think it's great what you do with Photo Bucket. Sorry they changed things on you and you couldn't get your name on the picture. I thought something was missing.

 

Brenda, great to see you here.

Hi people of this site!!  lol

Today instead of addressing each of you individually I am just going to say hello to all and continue with that.  If I have something specific to say I will just fit it in - OK?  Great.  So I had a very interesting day with G yesterday as we went to an indoor flea market.  I managed to buy some D & D dice (Dungeons & Dragons) for my sone for $1.00 and a couple of glass "thingies" that were only .50 cents each but the seller gave me three for $1.00.  I am using these to put candles on top.  Think they might have been used at one time for ashtrays.  He said he had tons of them and they are from the 50's.  Cool.


We also had a date night and went out for Chinese food to our favorite buffet place.  Ate too mcu, as per usual.  Came home, did 2 loads of laundry and crashed like a stone hitting water.  LOL!  Woke up when my sone got home at 12 p.m. and talked with him for a bit.  Thank goodness he came in because I forgot to take my night meds again.  Oopsies!  LOL!

Not too susre what we are going to do today.  Might have to do get milk.  Brenda - thanks for the hugs and right back at you!  Sandra - glad your meds worked and that you are feeling better!  Must be the healing energy being sent over to you!  Darla - don't know about learning a new game.  G just insn't into learning anything, he just likes what he's good at!  LOL!  Val - it is too bad that your daughter has to go through all that with her ex.  Been there, done that.  I at one time could have made the Jerry Springer show look like a Barbra Walters interview!  LMAO!  Tell her that there is light at the end of the tunnel and the judges aren't as stupid as her ex is!  Love your pic again.  The land there is similar to here - flat.  I just don't get outside the city much to see the flatness though or wake up early enough to see the sunrise!  

Well, wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and wonderful day!  Peace & Light.......

Good afternoon, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Care2 is being wonky when it comes to posts. I noticed it yesterday and th esame thing seems to be happening today. I'd do my post then check to make sure it was there and it would be but then it wouldn't show up when I'd go "back to topics". However, the posts eventually show back up b'cuz when I checked yesterday's posts mine were there. It makes it difficult to know if all the posts are showing up now.Voting ended today and MCRA denied the person who wanted a declawed kitten as I figured they would.

 

Sandra, glad you finished your antibiotics and that you're feeling better. Hope the cough goes away now. You're welcome. Thanks for the hugs, L, S, and extra HE ~ same back to you.

 

Brenda, yesterday was not quite as busy and today is better still.

Pat, well your post hadn't showed up when I first posted as I figured might happen. Sounds like you had a great day and got some good deals. I actually knew what D and D was as I had a roommate in college who played {this was back in the early 80's}. Hope y'all get your milk. We actually go thru alot as Ray makes us fruit smoothies all the time.

Darla and everyone - I actually rested this AM - amazing????   Just am so emotionally, physically and mentally exhausted.  Don't think they have a case on Julie due to the kids - they had to investigate because he went to the courts - they talked to the kids with denials of abuse so probably closed it - also therapist going to start coming to the house Tuesday night so she has a professional on her side - i use to do this kindd of stuff so I kept bugging her plus they were in counseling but David wouldn't pay half so she couln't afford it and the place was not convenient - oh - seems all the sites I am on they are changing - I am not that computer literate eo understand all these social sites - drives me nuts!


She'll be OK - lots more going on -thanks everyone!


Brenda - she needs to move her home off of family property but that can take a lot of money - she is getting her tax refund and hopefully talking to someone today - haven't been able to reach her today yet. 

Pat - sounds like you had a good time - I am glad -

Sandra - thanks for all the love and light -



Sorry folks just really tired today!


This is Idaho - think I figured out the text.
