HELLO LADIES

WELL THE ENDLESS HEAT CONTINUES.  WE ARE STAYING PUT INSIDE

WERE IT IS NICE AND COOL.  WHEN KIDS COMPLAIN THEN YOU KNOW IT IS HOT!!

THEY SHOWED THE HOUSE TODAY.  FIRST TIME IN QUITE A WHILE.  IT WAS A

GENTLEMAN LOOKING TO BE IN HIS 60'S AND HE WALKED WITH A QUAD CANE.

HE SEEMED VERY FRIENDLY.  THE REALTOR TOLD US THAT HE BOUGHT ANOTHER

BUILDING LAST MONTH AND MADE NO CHANGES TO THE TENANTS, ETC.  THAT

IS ALWAYS OUR WORRY.  I ALSO WORRY THAT THEY WILL RAISE THE RENT.  OURS

IS REALLY PRETTY CHEAP.  ALL 3 OTHER APTS ARE SMALLER AND PAY MORE PER 

MONTH THAN WE DO.  I CANNOT AFFORD FOR IT YO GO UP.

NO PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK OTHER THAN STAYING COOL.

HUGS,

Good Morning!   She's Baa-ack!

We had a lovely get-away and I had a really great birthday, much to share ~ perhaps too much.  lol

I'm going to tell those who are interested about my birthday and the trip to Estes Park/Rocky Mountain park in another thread, so you can wade through all my blather or not, as you wish.      I fear your eyes might glaze over and you might even say unkind things about me if I made you wade through it here in our sign in thread.  LOL

For here and now, I'll just try to get caught up with you.   I won't even attempt to discuss everything that was said all last week, though I have read all the posts.


Lou Ann ~ way too true about the heat.   It's at least 10 degrees cooler in the mountains than here in the "low lands" so for the most part we weren't too terribly hot.   Warmer than comfortable for sleeping at night but as long as we could keep the front door and windows open or sit on the deck it was pretty much ok.   I actually wore sweatshirts during the days and was fine ~ just a bit too warm to sleep as well as I would have liked.

I'm two days past due on my blood tests ~ just too much going on.   My Dr thinks monthly is fine, but Phillips wants their money for every two weeks.   Not too concerned.  I've been in range for months.  I do take a higher dosage than you do.  5mg every day except Saturday, and then 2.5 mg on Sat.

I can imagine how nervous making it is to have a new buyer come through.  Will he be good and not raise the rate?   Will he fix things and keep them in good order?   Or . . . .????   Good luck, if he's the one!


Mary Ann, good luck on your Social Security!!   How awful to chase them down to get any answers.

Are you getting enough work ~ enough jobs?       Boy, I'm like you lately.   If I do one thing I'm either exhausted or in pain ~ or both.  It's soooo irritating.


annnieM, I hope Rebecca works out and you like her as much as you did Jamie.


Dorothy

I AM NOT SURE WHERE TO BEGIN, BUT I NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE ABOUT THIS OR I WILL BURST. 

 IT INVADES MY EVERY WAKING MOMENT AND THEN SOME.  I WROTE SOME TO LOUANN AND IT TOOK

HER DAYS TO RESPOND TO ME.  THIS IS WHAT IS GOING ON.  SIT DOWN AND GET A CUP OF 

COFFEE, IT IS NOT A SHORT STORY.  i AM GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT MY SISTER SUZANNE, SHE

IS THE ONE THAT HAS FILED BANKRUPTCY AND HAS SONS TRAVIS AND JORDAN.  JORDAN IS IN 

TEXAS RIGHT NOW.  SO HIS CELL PHONE BROKE AND HE WENT AN BOUGHT HIMSELF A TRAC PHONE 

AND A $20 MIN. CARD, WHICH WAS USED UP IN JUST A COUPLE DAYS.  SO HE TELLS HIS MOM HE

NEEDS $50 TO GET A LIMITLESS ONE MONTH CARD.  SO SHE COMES TO ME TO ASK ME TO PUT IT ON

MY CREDIT CARD AND SHE WILL PAY ME ON FRIDAY.  I SAID OK.  SHE SIGNED INTO HER FACEBOOK

SO THAT I COULD CLICK ON A LINK FROM JORDAN FOR ADDING MIN TO HIS PHONE.  WHILE I AM

DOING THAT, THE PAGE (A RUNNING NOTE BETWEEN SUZ AND JORDAN) SCROLLED UP AND I SAW IT

SAID....IGNORE THE NOTE YOU GOT FROM YOUR BROTHER, HE WAS MAD BECAUSE I WOULD NOT

GIVE HIM WEED.  I THOUGHT  "WHAT!!"  BUT THEN QUICKLY THOUGHT SHE IS REFERRING TO 

CIGARETTES.  AS I CLICKED THE LINK AND PAID FOR HIS CARD IT BOTHERED ME MORE AND MORE SO I SORT

OF LOOKED BACK IN THE MESSAGES AND FOUND NOTES ABOUT " SELLING A DIME BAG FOR $30 TO A 

FRIEND AND MORE.  ALL NIGHT I FREAKED OUT ABOUT IT AND THOUGH...I JUST HAVE TO READ MORE AND 

PROVE MYSELF WRONG.  SO I TEXTED SUZ THE NEXT MORNING AND SAID THERE WAS SOME ISSUE WITH 

MY CREDIT CARD AND I NEEDED TO CLICK THE LINK TO SORT IT OUT SO SHE TEXTED ME THE PASSWORD.  

I AM FEELING SO GUILTY ABOUT DOING THIS AND READING HER PRIVATE MESSAGES.   I FOUND MORE 

REFERENCES LIKE THE ONES STATED.   SO THEN LOUANN WRITES ME BACK (I CANNOT CALL BECAUSE AT

THIS POINT I AM NOT TELLING MY MOM AND DO NOT WANT HER TO HEAR ME TALKING.  LOUANN SAYS I 

SHOULD CONFRONT HER FACE TO FACE.  THIS MORNING I WENT BACK IN AND READ OTHER NOTES THAT I

RECOGNIZED NAMES OF PEOPLE THAT HANG AROUND JORDAN AND SUZ.  IT ALL MADE ME LITERALLY SICK.

SHE IS SELLING DRUGS TO THESE KIDS.  SHE ALSO GOES AND GETS THEM ALCOHOL.  SHE IS ALL BUDDY 

BUDDY WITH THESE KIDS AND THEY ALL TALK TO HER LIKE SHE IS ONE OF THEM.  I SEE HER ASKING KIDS 

TO COME OVER AND SMOKE ONE WITH JORDAN BEFORE HE GOES AND MORE.  SHE IS ALWAYS RUNNING

THESES "KIDS" ALL OVER AND MOM HAS TOLD HER TO QUIT BEING A TAXI SERVICE WITH HER VAN.  BUT I 

SEE IN THE NOTES SHE IS OFTEN DELIVERING POT TO THEM OR TAKING THEM TO GET BOOZE FOR THEM.  

I JUST DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO.  I DO NOT THINK HER HUSBAND KNOWS AS SOMEONE WANTED TO 

COME OVER AND "SMOKE" AND PICK UP SOME AND SHE SAID NO BECAUSE JERRY WAS HOME AND AWAKE.  

SO I AM THINKING THAT MONDAY AFTER SHE TAKES MOM TO TOPS, I WILL TELL HER TO COME BACK HERE 

TO TALK TO ME.  BUT WHAT GOOD IS ANY OF THIS GOING TO DO.  SHE AND HER FAMILY HAVE ALWAYS 

LIED TO US SO MANY TIMES THAT I THINK SHE BELIEVES THESE LIES.  SEVERAL WEEKS AGO WHEN SHE 

WAS TAKING MOM TO AN APPT MOM FOUND A POT PIPE STUFFED DOWN INTO THE ARM REST ON THE 

PASSENGER SIDE FRONT SEAT.  THEY SAID IT HAD TO BE A FRIEND OF JORDAN'S THAT THEY RAN HOME THE

NIGHT BEFORE.  SO HOW IS ANYTHING I SAY TO HER GOING TO STOP HER.  I AM SURE SHE KNOWS I

WOULD NOT CALL THE POLICE AND SHE WILL TELL ME SHE WILL STOP AND PROBABLY GO RIGHT HOME AND

CONTINUE.  I THOUGHT OF TELLING HER SHE HAD TO LEAVE HER PASSWORD UNCHANGED SO I COULD

CHECK BACK OFTEN...BUT ALL SHE HAS TO DO IS MAKE AND FB PAGE WITH A FAKE NAME AND I WILL NEVER

NO IT.  ALSO OFTEN SHE SAID "TEXT ME" TO THEM TO FINISH THE ARRANGEMENTS.  DOES ANYONE HAVE

ANY SUGGESTIONS????  I AM DYING INSIDE.

SO ALONE IN THIS.  LOU ANN

I WAS ABLE TO TALK A BIT WITH LOUANN AND BRUCE.  THEY CONVINCED ME TO GET MY SISTERS JOANNE

AND DIANE TOGETHER AND DISCUSS IT.  WE ARE GETTING TOGETHER TOMORROW NIGHT AT LOUANN AND

BRUCE'S BECAUSE DO NOT WANT ANYONE WALKING IN ON THIS DISCUSSION.  LOUANN AND BRUCE WILL

STAY FOR IT TOO TO BE THE VOICES OF REASON.  WE WILL DECIDE WHAT TO DO AND WHETHER TO INCLUDE 

MOM IN ON WHATEVER WE DECIDE.  I DO NOT WANT THEM TO TELL LEIGH AT ALL, BUT THERE IS NOTHING I 

CAN DO IF ONE OF THE DECIDES TO AND THEY PROBABLY WILL.  HE ALREADY THINKS THE WORST OF 

SUZ AND HER FAMILY....THIS WILL JUST CONFIRM IT.  I AM NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO TOMORROW NIGHT 

BUT HAPPY TO SHARE THE BURDEN WITH OTHERS.  WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT WE DECIDE.

HUGS, LOU ANN

JUST FREAKING LOST MY POST!!!!     

WROTE TO LOUANN AND BRUCE AND TALKED TO THEM ON MY CELL IN THE BATHROOM.  THEY THOUGHT I 

SHOULD GET MY SISTERS JOANNE AND DIANE INVOLVED AND PLAN SOME SORT OF INTERVENTION.  S0 WE

ARE ALL MEETING AT LOUANN AND BRUCE'S TOMORROW FOR TO TALK THIS ALL OVER.  LOUANN AND BRUCE

WILL STAY TO BE THE VOICES OF REASON AND TO HOPEFULLY KEEP ANYONE FROM GETTING TO NASTY 

ABOUT THIS.  TOGETHER WE WILL DECIDE WHETHER TO INVOLVE MOM IN THIS AND HOW TO MOVE 

FORWARD AND ADDRESS THIS.  I COPIED MANY OF THE FACEBOOK MESSAGES AND EMAILED THEM TO 

LOUANN AND BRUCE, THEY WILL PRINT THEM OUT FOR MY SISTERS TO READ.  I AM NOT LOOKING 

FORWARD TO THIS WHOLE THING BUT IT IS A RELIEF TO HAVE OTHERS KNOW AND BE INVOLVED AND NOT

TO BE TAKING THIS ON ALONE.  THOUGH I STILL WORRY THAT JOANNE AND DIANE KNOWING MAY BE A

PROBLEM.  I REFUSE TO FEEL GUILTY ANY LONGER FOR HAVING READ HER MAIL, EVEN THOUGH I KNOW IT

IS WRONG.  BUT IT WAS THE CHANCE SHE TOOK GIVING ME HER PASSWORD.  WHY WOULD SHE TAKE THE 

CHANCE, KNOWING WHAT WAS IN THEM?  THIS IS GOING TO HURT THE FAMILY DYNAMICS BIG TIME AND

ONLY MAKE THEM WORSE CONCERNING SUZ AND FAMILY.  BUT, I TELL MYSELF, IT IS HER OWN FAULT FOR

BEING INVOLVED IN DRUGS.  I STILL CANNOT FATHOM HOW SHE LET THIS HAPPEN.  SHE MUST NOT BE 

VERY GOOD BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO MONEY.  ANYWAY, I AM GOING TO BED.  WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT 

GOES.  KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS.

HUGS, LOU ANN

Lou Ann, I'm sorry I didn't reply to your post earlier.  I read your message yesterday, couldn't think of what to say, so I left and decided to come back later.

Of course I still don't really know what to say.  My instinct was to do just what you are doing, and I'm so glad you are going that way.   My hesitation was because of the "eavesdropping" and the fact that knowing what you learned that way put you in an awkward position. I haven't any doubt that anyone else in the same position would do the same thing.   Your intention wasn't to "snoop" but to find out what was wrong so you could help.  What you learned was so far beyond what you could have imagined.  

I've had a different impression of Suzanne ~ based on what you have told us about her and her family, of course.  I assumed their financial problems were due to the changes in teacher pay/withholding, and like so many other people the inability to budget.   This other situation didn't even enter my mind.   I can imagine how shocked and horrified you have been.

I know how hard it is to share this with the family, but I'm glad that you are.  It's too much for you to carry by yourself, and you know that you can't "fix it" by yourself. 

Are you concerned about your mom's reaction?

I'm concerned that you won't get your $50 back, and I know you don't have that kind of money just sitting around.  I realize in the scheme of things, that's not as important, but I don't want to see you hurt financially as well as what you are already going through.

I'm also concerned because I know you and your mom often rely on her for transportation and getting groceries and such.  

I think you need to hold your head high and not accept for a minute that any of this is your fault.  Suz may look for someone else to blame, but don't let her. 

I wish I had profound words of wisdom to share, but I don't.   I can only offer my prayers, and those you have.    Do let us know what happens at the meeting tonight.   My thoughts will be with you.

THANKS FOR YOUR WORDS DOROTHY. THEY MEAN A LOT.  MET WITH MY SISTERS AT LOUANN AND BRUCE'S

AND THEY STAYED AND DISCUSSED IT WITH US.  I SO TRUST AND RESPECT THEIR OPINIONS.  FIRST, WE 

ARE ALL BEYOND SHOCKED.  BRUCE MADE COPIES FOR EVERYONE OF ALL THE MESSAGES I SENT THEM.  

THAT HELPED A LOT.  SO I EXPLAINED WHAT I HAD DONE AND WHAT I HAD FOUND OUT.  I JUST SKIMMED 

SO MANY OF THE MESSAGES.  BRUCE READ THEM MORE THOROUGHLY AND CAUGHT MORE INFO THAT I 

EVEN HAD.  SHE IS NOT ONLY SELLING MARIJUANA, SHE IS SELLING ADDERALL (WE ASSUME IT IS JORDAN'S 

PRESCRIPTION) AND BUYING ALCOHOL FOR UNDERAGE KIDS.  WE DECIDED TO CONFRONT HER ALL 

TOGETHER.  I HAVE ASKED HER TO TAKE ME TO A NON EXISTENT APPT WED AT 4:30.  ON WED, BEFORE MY 

SISTERS COME I WILL EXPLAIN TO MOM WHAT IS GOING ON.  SHE NEEDS TO KNOW SINCE SUZ IS USING 

MOMS VEHICLE TO OBTAIN AND DELIVER DRUGS.  JOANNE AND DIANE SAID WE WILL INSIST THAT MOM'S 

VEHICLE BE RETURNED TO HER.  WE DO NOT THINK THAT HER HUSBAND IT AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON, 

BUT BOTH HER BOYS ARE.  LOU AND BRU THINK THAT IF JERRY DOES NOT KNOW HE NEEDS TO BE TOLD.  

IN ALL HONESTY, I THINK THEIR MARRIAGE IS THEIR BUSINESS AND WHERE AS SHE SHOULD TELL HIM, I 

AM PRETTY SURE IT WILL END THEIR MARRIAGE.  SO NOT SURE HOW WE WILL HANDLE THAT.  MAYBE MOM

WILL HAVE GOOD INPUT INTO THAT.  WE DO NOT KNOW HOW WE CAN MAKE SURE SHE QUITS DOING THIS.

WE WILL DO THE BEST WE CAN AND WE ARE GOING TO TELL HER THAT IF WE FIND OUT THAT SHE HAS NOT

STOPPED DOING THIS, THAT WE WILL HAND THE PACKET OF NOTES WITH NAMES AND DATES TO THE 

POLICE.  DIANE SAID SHE IS ALREADY ENDANGERING HER JOB AS A TEACHER BY KNOWING ABOUT THIS

AND NOT TELLING THE POLICE.  SHE COULD LOSE HER JOB IF THEY FOUND SHE HAD KNOWLEDGE OF THIS

AND DID NOT TURN IT INTO THE POLICE.  JERRY WORKS CUSTODIAL FOR THE SCHOOL SYSTEM, HE WOULD

LOSE HIS JOB TOO.  WE DO NOT WANT TO TELL MOM TILL JUST BEFORE WE WILL BE MEETING WITH SUZ

FOR FEAR THAT SHE WILL BLURT SOMETHING OUT TO THE WRONG PERSON OR EVEN SUZANNE BEFORE WE

CAN MEET, THAT IS WHY AM WAITING TILL WED. TO TELL HER THE DETAILS.  I FELT REALLY GUILTY ABOUT

READING HER NOTES/EMAIL BUT HOW I SAW THE FIRST REFERENCE TO DRUGS WAS AN ACCIDENT AND AS

BRUCE SAID, I DID THE REST BECAUSE I LOVED HER AND WANTED TO HELP IN WHATEVER WAY I COULD.

ALL THINK IT IS A REALLY GOOD THING THAT I DID FIND OUT.  MY SISTER JOANNE SAID THAT THE POLICE

MIGHT EVEN BE WATCHING HER ALREADY AS FOND DU LAC HAS REALLY BEEN CRACKING DOWN ON THE 

DRUG DEALERS, ETC IN TOWN.  AND TONS HAVE BEEN ARRESTED.  AND ONE OF JERRY'S BROTHERS IS A 

POLICEMAN.  THIS IS THE STUPIDEST THING SHE HAS EVER DONE.  WE ARE NOT TELLING ANY OF JOANNE'S

KIDS OR HER HUSBAND....HE ALREADY DOES NOT LIKE SUZ AND HER FAMILY.  WE ARE ALSO NOT TELLING

MY BROTHER LEIGH ABOUT IT AS HE ALSO ALREADY THINKS THE WORST OF SUZ AND FAMILY.  WE WERE

NOT GOING TO TELL MOM AT FIRST, BUT DECIDED THAT WITH SUZ USING HER CAR, SHE WOULD NEED TO

KNOW.  I AM NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO WEDNESDAY....I WANT THIS DONE AND OVER WITH.  I FEEL BAD

ENOUGH THAT I INVADED HER PRIVACY AND READ THOSE NOTES, BUT ALSO THAT I AM THE ONE LURING

HER TO THIS INTERVENTION.  BUT IN MY HEART I KNOW I HAVE DONE THE RIGHT THING.  I AM GOING TO

BED NOW.  IT HAS BEEN AN EMOTIONAL NIGHT.

We went to the Keg last night to claim my complimentary birthday dinner.   Went a bit crazy and had steak and half a lobster.  I'd never even seen "half a lobster" before, so you know I had to try.  lol.  I'd also never had a whole lobster before ~ I always get lobster tail ~ so I'd never had the sweet meat from the claw I keep hearing about.  That really is good!  Still, I think I'll go back to my old standard lobster tail in the future.

Mike had prime rib, and we shared a 'Billy Miner's Pie' (mocha ice cream pie with caramel.   Nice.

I played with getting the RMNP pictures into Snapfish and I still have a lot of work to do.  I took way too many pictures ~ as usual.  lol

No plans a'tall for today.  Doesn't that sound nice?


Lou Ann, it seems so trivial to talk about my day and going out for a meal with all you are going through.   Hopefully it can be a bit distracting.

I'm so glad you had your meeting with your sisters and that you had Louann and Bruce's support to keep the discussion on track.  I wish you weren't smack dab in the middle of it.  I can only imagine how stressful it is for you.   Still, I can't imagine you not being there to fully support and help Suz get her life back on track.

I find myself dreading your discussion with your mom, but you really HAVE to let her know, for so many reasons, not the least of which is that if the police picked Suz up using your mom's car they could confiscate her car.  That would be an even more terrible way for her to learn what was happening.

Saying prayers and sending good thoughts ~~

SO MUCH HAS BEEN GOING ON I SWEAR MY HEAD IS SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL.  WE ALL MET AT 

FAUSKA'S AND WENT OVER EVERYTHING.  JOANNE WOULD NOT READ THE PRINTOUTS AND THE

WHOLE TIME KEPT SAYING THINGS LIKE LET'S MAKE A DECISION HERE I WANT TO GO HOME.  I 

WAS REALLY NOT HAPPY WITH HER ATTITUDE.  FIRST WE WORKED OUT A PLAN WHERE THE 3 OF 

US WOULD CONFRONT HER WITHOUT INVOLVING MOM.  UNTIL JOANNE BROUGHT UP THE POINT 

THAT IF THEY CAUGHT SUZ THEY WOULD CONFISCATE MOMS CAR SO DECIDED TO INCLUDE 

MOM IN IT.  WE ALSO DECIDED THAT SHE WOULD HAVE TO RETURN MOMS CAR TO HER AND GET 

HER OWN.SO WE DECIDED TO CONFRONT HER ON WED AND NOT TELL MOM TILL WEDNESDAY 

SO THAT SHE DID NOT SAY ANYTHING IN ADVANCE.

THEN YESTERDAY I WROTE MY SISTERS THAT THE TIME CONSTRAINTS OF WHEN WE WERE 

GOING TO DO THE INTERVENTION WOULD NOT WORK AND MY REASONS WHY AND THAT WE 

SHOULD CHOOSE A DIFFERENT TIME.  THEY WROTE THAT THEY DID NOT THINK IT WOULD GO 

AS WELL IF ALL OF US CONFRONTED SUZ AT ONCE AND THAT THEY THOUGHT MOM AND I 

SHOULD DO IT SINCE WE HAD THE CLOSER RELATIONSHIPS WITH HER.  I SAID I SORT OF

AGREED WITH THAT SO THEN IT WAS TO BE MOM AND I CONFRONTING HER.  SO THEN I 

HAD TO SIT DOWN WITH MY MOM AND TELL HER ALL OF IT.  YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW THAT

WENT.  THEN SUZ CALLED AND SAID SHE WAS COMING OVER TO FINISH LAUNDRY SO THAT

SEEMED THE BEST TIME TO TALK WITH HER.  

WHEN SHE GOT HERE SHE CHANGED LOADS IN THE BASEMENT AND CAME UPSTAIRS,  SHE

KNEW SOMETHING WAS UP BECAUSE I HAD PUT DOWN MY COMPUTER, WE CLOSED THE FRONT

DOOR AND SHUT OFF THE TV.  SHE LOOKED AT US AND SAID WHAT DID I DO NOW.  WE TOLD

HER WE KNEW SHE WAS SELLING DRUGS.  SHE DENIED IT.  WE TOLD HER NO MORE LYING

THAT NOW WAS THE TIME TO BE TRUTHFUL AND SHE STILL DENIED IT.  WE SAID WE KNEW

IT WAS TRUE AND STILL SHE DENIED IT.  I THEN SAID THAT I SAW IT ALL MYSELF ON HER

FACEBOOK, SHE THEN SAID I WAS DOING IT BUT NOT ANYMORE.   SHE CLAIMED THAT IS

WHY SHE WANTED JORDAN TO GO TO TEXAS TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL AND THAT SHE GOT

RID OF EVERYTHING.  WE HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING IF THAT IS SO.  ALL HER NOTES DID

SEEM TO BE ABOUT 3 WEEKS OLD EXCEPT ONE AND SHE EXPLAINED THAT ONE.  SHE DENIED

SELLING JORDAN'S MEDS AND IN THAT WE KNOW SHE WAS LYING STILL.  SHE TRIED TO TURN

IT AROUND.  WE MADE HER GO ON FACEBOOK AND DELETE EVERYTHING THAT HAD TO DO

WITH THE DRUGS.  HER HUSBAND DOES NOT KNOW WHAT SHE WAS DOING.   LOUANN AND 

BRUCE FELT THAT WE SHOULD INCLUDE HIM IN THE EVENT.  BUT WE ALL DISCUSSED IT AND

DECIDED WE WERE NOT GETTING OURSELVES INVOLVED IN THEIR MARRIAGE.  IF SHE TELLS

HIM IT IS HER CHOICE, I AM SURE SHE WILL NOT.  WE BELIEVE IT WOULD END THEIR

MARRIAGE IF SHE DID.  MOM DID NOT DEMAND HER CAR BACK.  I THINK SHE JUST COULD

NOT DO THAT TO HER. I DO NOT KNOW HOW WE CAN ENSURE THAT SHE NO LONGER DOES 

THIS.  SHE GOT QUIET BUT SHE DID NOT GET REALLY UPSET IN MY EYES.  SHE SAID SHE WAS

TRYING TO MAKE MONEY TO PAY BILLS.  NOT THE ANSWER WE SAID.  SHE DID GET A BIT 

UPSET WHEN WE TOLD HER THAT JOANNE AND DIANE KNEW.  I AM GOING TO TRY TO GET

INTO HER ACCOUNT TO SEE IF SHE CHANGED HER PASSWORD.  I DO NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE

WE CAN DO.  I AM GOING TO WRITE BOTH HER BOYS AND TELL THEM WE ARE WATCHING.

SO THAT IS THAT.  PLEASE PRAY FOR US ALL.

HUGS, LOU ANN

Hello  
I had another coughing "fit" at 2 AM so I got up hoping not to keep Mike awake.   It's wonderful having the front room to come to when something like that happens, but try as I might, once I finally got the coughing stopped, I couldn't get to sleep until 6 AM.   Needless to say, I'm not worth a darn today.  The worst part was that I was sooo comfortable in bed.  That doesn't always happen.  If I could have stopped coughing, I could have gotten back to sleep easily.  Grumble. Grumble. 


Lou Ann, I'm really sorry your sisters bailed on you.   I hope they don't act as if they are the 'good guys', on Suz's side and you are the 'bad sister'.     I'll say no more.   I just don't want you to be hurt again.

How did your mom react when you told her?   I know it must have hurt and horrified her.  

I'll keep Suz and the whole family in my prayers.  

If you need to talk, I'm here.

NEVER FAILS THAT WHEN YOU ARE COMFY COZY IN BED, THAT COUGHING OR HAVING TO GO TO

THE BATHROOM GETS YOU UP AND IT IS SO IMPOSSIBLE TO GET TO SLEEP AGAIN.  I HOPE YOU 

SLEPT WELL TONIGHT.

I THINK MOM TOOK IT MUCH AS I DID.  SHOCK AND DISBELIEF.  AND THEN FRETTING ABOUT IT.

WE BOTH WORRY THAT IT WILL NOT END AND HOW WILL WE KNOW.  JOANNE (THE COWARD) 

WROTE SUZ AND LETTER AND LEFT IT HERE FOR HER.  IT TOLD HER THAT SHE LOVED HER BUT 

THEN WENT ON TO LECTURE HER AND TELL HER THAT SHE CANNOT HAVE THEM IN HER HOME OR

AROUND HER BOYS TILL THIS IS DONE AND ALL IS WELL.  I DID NOT FEEL THAT PART WAS 

NECESSARY, BUT I UNDERSTAND THAT SHE IS PROTECTING HER FAMILY.

TODAY I WROTE BOTH OF SUZANNE'S BOYS AND SAID THAT WE KNOW ALL ABOUT THE BUYING, 

SELLING AND USING GOING ON IN THEIR HOME AND IT STOPS NOW.  WARNED THEM IF ONE GETS

CAUGHT THEY WOULD ALL GO TO JAIL, THAT THEIR PARENTS WOULD LOSE THEIR JOBS AND THAT

THEIR DAD WOULD MORE THAN LIKELY LEAVE THEM.  I SAID WE WILL BE WATCHING THEM TO

PROTECT THEM AND THAT WE HAVE ALL THE EVIDENCE WE NEED AND IF FOR ANY REASON WE

FIND THAT THIS IS STILL GOING ON, WE WILL TURN IT ALL IN TO THE POLICE AND I MEAN THAT.  

IF THEY WERE NOT MY FAMILY THERE WOULD BE NO 2ND CHANCE.  SUZ HAS NOT CHANGED HER

PASSWORD, SO I WENT IN TODAY TO CHECK AND FOUND SHE HAD NOT DELETED A LOT OF THE 

NOTES, SO I DID.  WILL SEE IF SHE EVEN NOTICES.  IF SHE DOES NOT CHANGE HER PASSWORD

I WILL CONTINUE TO CHECK.

THINGS ARE NOT GOING WELL IN TEXAS EITHER.  JORDAN DID NOT GET THE JOB AT THE WATER

PARK BECAUSE HE HAD A PANIC ATTACK BEFORE HE DID HIS SWIMMING TEST AS HE WAS 

AFRAID HE COULD NOT DO IT.  SO NO JOB.  HE HAD BEEN TOLD BEFORE GOING THAT HE COULD

WORK AT THE TRAIN MUSEUM, BUT MY COUSINS SON MATT, STOLE FROM THEM SO THEY WILL 

NOT HIRE FROM THE FAMILY.  SO JORDAN IS STUCK DOWN THERE, WITH NO JOB, NO TRANSPOR-

TATION AND NO LIFE.  MATT HAS BEEN ACTING OUT AND IS GROUNDED.  TODAY MATT GOT INTO

A FIGHT WITH MY COUSI MARK...HIS STEP FATHER.  A PHYSICAL FIGHT.  MARK DID NOT HIT 

BACK AND MATT KEPT HITTING HIM.  JORDAN JUMPED IN AND STOPPED THEM.  MATT WAS SO

MAD HE WENT INTO THE KITCHEN AND CAME OUT AFTER JORDAN WITH A KNIFE.  MARK STOPPED

THAT.  NOW JORDAN SAYS HE IS PACKING AND LEAVING AND DOES NOT CARE WHERE IS GOES

JUST AWAY FROM THEM ALL.  MOM AND I BOTH TRIED TO STOP HIM FROM GOING DOWN THERE.  

SUZ IS HINTING THAT FOR MOM TO LEND THE MONEY TO BRING HIM HOME AND SO FAR MOM HAS

NOT CAVED IN.  BUT IT WILL HAPPEN AND IN THE CASE, I CANNOT SAY I WOULD NOT DO THE 

SAME.  OBVIOUSLY MATT IS OUT OF CONTROL AND I WOULD BE AFRAID OF WHAT HE MIGHT DO.

JORDAN WENT OFF ON FACEBOOK ABOUT THE WHOLE FAMILY DOWN THERE SO I AM SURE THEY

WANT HIM GONE AS MUCH AS HE WANTS TO GO.  I TOLD MY MOM I WOULD REALLY NOT BE

SURPRISED TO FIND OUT THAT THEY ALL MADE THE WHOLE THING UP TO GET MY MOM TO LEND 

THE MONEY.  I DO NOT KNOW IF I WILL EVER BELIEVE ANY OF THEM EVER AGAIN.

SAYING GOOD NIGHT.  SLEEP WELL.

HUGS,

Hello.  
This week seems to be flying by, doesn't it.    We finished the last of my two birthday cakes last night. smiley44  Is the party over?  Naaaa. Not quite.  I had a free dinner invitation from White Fence Farms that we had planned to use last night, but I felt so cruddy because of not getting any sleep the night before that we opted to get carry out from the brand new Chic Fill-a that just opened up fairly close to our neighborhood.   We plan a couple more outings before we officially declare this birthday finished.

I talked to my cousin Betty yesterday.  She apologized for missing my birthday because she had been in the hospital.  Like my birthday was nearly as important as her hospitalization.   She is 88 and lost her husband last year.  She's always been a real tiger, nothing could get her down.  She went parasailing to celebrate her 75th birthday!   A few months ago, she had a stroke and got to the hospital almost immediately and told them she thought she had a stroke ~ like you are supposed to do.   Dr said no he didn't think so.  He took a cat scan which didn't show anything and said it's just your diabetes and sent her home ~~ where she continued to have little strokes!   Five days later her son took her back to the hospital and said "My mom has had a stroke".   This time they did an MRI and said "Yes,  in fact you have had several!"   If the NumbNuts who examined her the first time had given her medication instead of just sending her home, things would have been different, but now she is nearly blind!   This last hospitalization was because she started having "brain seizures" and passing out.  She got some bad bruises and could have really been hurt.   They kept her for a week and put her on anti seizure medicine which seems to be working.   Her son is looking into suing the hospital and the original doctor who's incompetence caused her blindness.    She's a very upbeat, positive person, but she sounded so sad and vulnerable when I talked to her yesterday it broke my heart.


Lou Ann, I really hope this situation with Suz can work out.   Is Diane going to talk to her too, or is it enough that Suz knows that Diane knows too?  

I feel bad about Jordan ~ he's one of the good guys and I have trouble blaming him for the drugs even.  He's a kid and clearly one with no adult guidance in his own home.

I'm sure I would be tempted to loan or give the money to bring him home, too.  The only suggestion I will make is that you (or your mom) don't just hand the money to Suz, but buy a ticket for him to use to come home.  And maybe make her sign an IOU so you have hopes of getting reimbursed.  

I feel so bad about all of this.


While I have kept the check books balanced, I didn't do the budget LAST month, and this month is almost over and of course I haven't done it yet.  I don't remember ever going that long before and I can't tell you how much I am NOT looking forward to doing it today!   Think I will just set the aspirin bottle next to me ~~ or maybe the Scotch!

Have a Tremendous Thursday, All.

Of course as a Retiree, Friday isn't much different than Monday to me, but I do still REMEMBER the joy of TGIF.  lol

I got a good night's sleep last night ~ what a glorious thing!   I think we may go to the Bonefish for an early dinner tonight.  They have started serving their wonderful lobster rolls again (lobster salad in a brioche bun).  I don't know how long they will have them, but I want one ~~ or 10.    

Yesterday Mike called Matt AGAIN.  Lord, this is getting old!  Matt gave Mike the name of someone in the landscaping service who is apparently in charge of plants (or something), so Mike called Ben, got his voice mail twice and left word.   Will we EVER hear from him?   Aarrggghhhh!    Poor Mike is the one who wanted the retaining wall, but I definitely agreed with him.  Now he says he wishes he'd never started I.  It's really been spoiled for us.   Will we EVER get the plants in ~ never mind the retaining wall around the AC?   I want to go and suck my thumb.

Have a Fun Friday, all!

Dorothy
