JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT I GOT THIS FROM DEANNA'S 

SISTER IN LAW APRIL TODAY.

Deanna is living with her daughter in rapid city. They built a new house to help Deanna with her needs. We do not

see her often but I will try to let her know that you said hello.


SO THEN I ASKED FOR AN ADDRESS OR PHONE NUMBER.

KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED!

HUGS, LOU ANN

It's Ash Wednesday, the first day of March, and the day after President Trump's first speech to Congress.   I've been having fun reading Facebook articles about the speech and watching Fox News.   I did turn over to NBC to see what the Other Side was saying, but they had Chuck Schumer speaking, and apparently Donald Trump hasn't done anything.   Okey-dokey.  Lol.

The DOW crossed 21,000 for the first time ever this morning.

March seems to be coming in Lamb-like today, so far at least.  Warming up to the mid 40s today, and the lower 50s tomorrow.  Tomorrow is trash day, so we'll get the can to the curb later this afternoon.  We don't have to worry about the Recycle Bin until next week. 

How wonderful that you heard from April!  I know you have contacted her in the past and not gotten a response.  What prompted this response?   I love hearing that she is living with Zarah (is that the way you spell it?) and her husband and son, in a new house made to accommodate Dee's needs!  I have imagined her in 'her' house with her tree, but with Zarah and her family living there.   This sounds even better in many ways.  Wonderful to hear.  Thank you for keeping on top of this.  I admit, I gave up ~ not thinking about her and praying for her, but trying to find anything out.

Have a happy day!

Good Morning.

Trash pick up day today.  It was so windy last night we decided not to take it to the curb until this morning, and it sounds like it may have already been picked up.  They are predicting less wind today, and a high of 53.  

Tonight I think we are going to dinner at The Hideaway.  This is Denver Restaurant Week (which now lasts for more than a week).  Initially, area restaurants would serve three or four course meals for two for $52.80 (for the 5280 feet of the Mile High City)   The prices have gone up a bit, but it's still frequently a good deal, and in the past has been an opportunity for us to visit high end restaurants for a reasonable price.  Many of our "regular" restaurants also offer special things during Restaurant Week, and tonight The Hideaway is serving (among other options) Walleye Pike in a honey butter sauce.  Mike loves Walleye, and we can't often get it.  I'm not so sure about the honey-butter sauce, but it's probably quite good.  I may opt for the filet.

Here's a link to the menu for Restaurant Week.  You have to pull it down to see the entire menu.  You can also check out the restaurant here.  Of course you can also opt to order off of their regular menu.


I will save Dee's number, but you have done all the work to get it so I think you should call.   Please give her my love ~ and if you can get the physical address, please do.  I'm sure the gals in the other group would love to send her a card from time to time as well.


Thanks for putting up the new thread.  Sleep awareness week?  LOL   What can we say?  I think thee and me are pretty much always aware of sleep.

I think I might put off Procrastination Week for a while.

Good Morning.

Beautiful new March Skin ~~ Thank you!!

We are heading back to Spring (the 60s) for the next three days.   Mike has been waiting for some more cold days to make his chili, but I think he's either going to have a longer wait, or need to just go ahead and make it.

Dinner last night was lovely and we both brought home half of our meals for tonight.   I also tried a new to me wine, a Troublemaker Red Blend.   Of course you know I selected it because of the Troublemaker name.   Mike said it was appropriate.  Ha!   Our waiter said it was 'spicy'.  You know how they always describe wines ("A naughty little wine" ~ what does THAT mean?   "A hint of chocolate" ~ that I have never once discerned.   etc)    Well, darned if this description wasn't accurate ~ I can't think of a better word than 'spicy', though it wasn't hot or anything normally associated with spice.  I gave Mike a sip and we both really liked it, and plan to buy some.  Really fun.   I went onto the Troublemaker Web Site and the descriptors they use are again those that my palate isn't sophisticated enough to recognize ~~ lol.

When we came home, we watched the movie Disclosure (based on the Michael Crichton book).  I had read the book long before the movie came out and loved it, but we hadn't watched the movie in years, so it was largely fresh and new and we both enjoyed it. !  

The Murdock Mysteries TV series that we love was first a series of three full length movies based on the character of Murdoch, but with a different actor, and we watched one of those before going to sleep ~~ well, I watched most of it anyway.  

Hope you are having a good day!

Hello.  
We made it through another week.   

We got some exciting news yesterday.  Our mattress has valleys that go down to close to Australia.   It's not that old ~ how long are mattresses supposed to last these days?   It was a really good one, from the "W" Hotels.   Very comfy at first, but not now, so we ordered a new one and it will be here on Tuesday.   Oh, how I hope it really is good.    It's a Saatva, which Mike assures me is the best selling on line mattress, hand made just for us.  He's the family shopper ~ what do I know?  (Other than that I can hold him responsible if it isn't good!  lol)

 We have never had good luck with mattresses.   Anyway, it will be delivered on Tuesday morning between 9 and 12.  We also got a new mattress pad and new bamboo sheets.   It will be a whole new sleeping experience ~~ and I really hope it's a good one!  

That's pretty much the "it" for news from here.  

Speaking of Easter (well, we were in the other group ~ lol), I saw the cutest Easter Card someone made and posted in one of the Stampin Up Facebook groups.  Other people who are not me are SO clever and creative!   She just used some stitched oval and circle dies that I have ~ but would never have thought of using like that.   I might try ~ or not.  If I do, I'll share.   I had a different one I was going to make for the kids, but the more I look at it the less I like it.  We'll see.  At the rate I'm going, I won't make anything.  Ha.

We just heated our leftovers from the Hideaway in the microwave for dinner last night, and it was nearly as good as the first time.   

Were you able to reach annnieM?    

I hope all is well, with BOTH of you.  ;-)

Ok, I'm a little late using the "Welcome to March" tag ~ but not too late, right?
It's supposed to be in the high 60s again today, but we have (UGH) High Wind Warnings.   

I really felt awful yesterday.   I had a lot of back pain that was almost making me sick.   Finally let up by late afternoon, and we went for a drive and to mail some letters.   Much better so far today.

It's a good thing I'm so interesting, because I would be getting bored talking to myself otherwise....

I will say I am sorry, just this once.  I cannot help what is going on in my life and no one sees it. I have been in a dark place in my life and I am trying my best to crawl out of it,  Just the fact that I am here and writing you says something good.  I have had to make myself get out of bed.  I make and eat my lunch and then do all my pills and inhalers and then nebulizer tx.   After that, no matter what I do I sleep wake up for a few min and sleep some more. Hours go by.  Days go by.  So no, I have not call Deanna and I am not sure when I will.  I hate talking on the phone and the more I thought about it the more I realized she gave up on us long before we gave up on her.  So it is something I have to work up to.  If you want to do it sooner than I, feel free.  I think today is a break through.  I came, I read, I wrote.  I know I really did not respond to what you wrote, but I read it and I am here. If I come back tomorrow you know I am doing better. 
Hugs,

Our temperatures have plummeted to the 40s, and we have a high wind warning again.  Yesterday's high wind warning didn't amount to much, but already this morning the winds are really howling. Ugh! 

Our new mattress comes tomorrow morning, and already I hear the sounds of yet another song from Les Miz: "One more day"  . .   lol     Because their window is from 9 to 12, I will need to be up, dressed and with the sheets in the wash before 9, so you may not see my smiling face until later if at all.

I'm sorry you have been so down.  I can understand it, with the worry about your mom and when she will come home and how she will do.   Sleep can be our friend as we try to heal from physical or psychological problems, but of course it is also a sign of depression.  I'm sorry you are having to deal with that, and I wish I could do something to help.

If I offended you by mentioning that I was talking to myself, I'm sorry.  I wasn't out of sorts about it, just commenting.  I've still come in every day ~ would it be better for you if I didn't?   I don't mean to make you feel bad.   I post in the other group, so it's easy for me to slip over to post here, using some fo the comments I make there like I would a "Christmas Letter", so I don't have to repeat.

I don't usually have that much to say.  We lead a pretty boring life, so maybe it would be better if I took my lead from you and only posted when I see that you have, so you won't feel bad.  Or, I can keep blathering on my way from the other group.

I did use some new dies to cut out Dragonflies from glitter paper yesterday.  No idea how I'm going to use them, but they are there "at the ready" for when I need them.  Otherwise, I'm still waiting for my Creative Juices to awaken. 

In the meantime, I just send you love and prayers.

Wow, that was a singularly nasty note from me.  I can blame it on being in a dark place.  I guess I was looking for a where are you, are you alright?  I am sorry I was so rude.  I do no recall it being that way, but it certainly is.  
Seems the only thing I am accomplishing today is writing here.  That is better than nothing that is for sure and it is better than most things.  The hardest thing right now is that my world has not time in it.  I try but it is a lost cause at the moment.  I am trying to  make the days normal.  But it is hard when you do not stay awake.
Please keep writing.  I expect it and it is normalcy in my life.  Besides I have always enjoyed your wit when you write.  I enjoy you.  You are important to my life.  Just keep being here for me please.  That is all I ask.  Oh, and the bunny card is adorable.

Top of the Whatachamacallit. 

We have a new mattress!   I was up, dressed, hair and make up done, breakfasted and sheets in the wash before 9 AM.  At about 9:20 we got a call from the delivery guys saying they would be here in 20 minutes and they were.   They brought the new mattress in and it looks and feels good ~ only time will tell.   Then they put the old mattress in a plastic wrapper before taking it out to the truck.   If we had any bugs, they won't get on any other mattresses they are delivering ~ I don't believe we have any bugs, but I liked that they did that so we don't have to worry about anybody else's bugs getting on our new mattress ~ now THERE'S a thought.   Ha!   

We have the new mattress pad on, and we're resting and watching Miss Fisher and having coffee before making the bed.  ;-)

I sent out an email about Barb's knee surgery earlier.   Please keep her in your prayers.  She is having a total knee replacement done this morning, and expecting to have the other knee done after she returns from her next mission to Guatemala in May.  (!!)  Some of the "kids" she mentors will be looking out for her for the first two weeks, and her church has offered to bring meals, so there is nothing I can do for her but pray ~~ and request more prayers from you.  

Please don't worry if your tone isn't always what it usually is.  We all have "Days".   Believe me, I do understand.    I definitely have my days when I just want to pull the covers over my head and hide.   I sort of do that to a degree when I beg off from going out or wanting to do things with friends or even with Mike.  My situation is different than yours and not as hard, but I do understand.   If I don't come across like I do sometimes, I'm sorry.   I do care so much about you and I'm frustrated that there is nothing I can do to make things better.    Sometimes I feel like I make them worse.

I'm from Minnesota.  I should at least be able to bring over a 'hot dish', but the truth of the matter is that even if I lived next door, I probably wouldn't.   I've become so paranoid about not cooking 'good enough' or not cooking something that someone else wants that I don't even try anymore, not to mention that when I stand for 10 minutes I hurt.   I don't do nearly enough cooking even for Mike anymore.   Sad

Of course I know you aren't looking for food, it's just symbolic of what a Minnesota gal does when a friend is sick or has a problem.  Ha.  

It is easier for me to pop in every day since I am already in the other group, but the truth is that I come here because I want to, and so I will continue.   I just didn't want to be making you feel bad ~ or worse.

We are still having "the winds", though not as bad as yesterday.  On the positive side, the the discoloration and cloudiness between the panes of our big window with the broken seal is much less than it is when it's not windy.  You'd almost think the window was nearly healed ~~ if you didn't know better.

We have someone from Champion Windows coming out on Thursday to give us an estimate and tell us what they can do, and someone else, a small business, coming out next Monday.   What a serious pain in my tush, but it's gotta be done.   

Well, that's my blather for today.   Tonight we will see how the new mattress is.  Oooh, how I hope it's a real improvement.

Sending hugs and happy thoughts.

Love you.

THANKS FOR BEING SO VERY UNDERSTANDING.  I LOVE YOU.
HAD SEVERAL CALL TODAY OF PEOPLE WANTING TO KNOW HOW MOM IS AND THEN ALSO'
ASKING HOW I WAS HOLDING UP?  WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY WOULD THINK IF I SAID I 
AM LOUSY AND WISH I WERE DEAD OR THAT I WAS DEEPLY DEPRESSED AND I A DARK PLACE
AT THIS TIME.  I WONDER WHAT THEY WOULD SAY?

THE  NEBULIZER TREATMENTS REALLY DO HELP.  LAST NIGHT I WAS JUST GOING TO GO TO BED
WITHOUT DOING ANOTHER TREATMENT,  I GOT UP, LIGHTS OUT WENT AND LOCKED THE FRONT DOOR, WENT TO KITCHEN WITH DISHES AND GOT O2 TUBING CAUGHT.  HAD TO GO BACK TO UNHOOK IT AND THEN BARELY MADE IT TO MY CHAIR IN THE KITCHEN.  I WAS 
GASPING FOR BREATH AND TRYING DESPARETLY T0 SLOW BREATHING.  IT TOOK FOREVER.
IT IS THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD WHEN YOU CANNOT GET YOUR BREATH....WHEN I 
THINK THAT THAT IS HOW I CAN LOOK FORWARD TO DYING IT SCARES THE CRAP OUT OF ME.
ANYWAY, I WENT TO THE BATHROOM AND WALKED SLOWLY INTO THE LIVING ROOM AND SAT AND DID MY NEBULIZER TX.  I WILL NOT BE SKIPPING THAT ANY MORE.
MOM TRIED TO CHEER ME UP ON THE PHONE TONIGHT, SHE KNOWS I DO NOT FEEL WELL.  I MADE HER LAUGH AND WHEN SHE HUNG UP I CRIED.

I HOPE YOUR NEW MATTRESS IS A DREAM.  MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN ADJUSTABLE
SIDES SO YOU EACH COULD HAVE IT HOW YOU LIKE IT,
I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT NO COOKING.  I DO NOT AND AM GOING TO HAVE TO WHEN 
WHEN MOM COMES HOME.  OR MAYBE WE WILL DO IT TOGETHER.  I AM ONLY MAKING MYSELF
MICROWAVEABLE THINGS.   I AM THINKING IT IS TIME TO BRING OUT THE OTHER MAC AND
CHEESE.  I AM THINKING I MIGHT LIKE IT WITH SOME SAUSAGE.  WE WILL SEE.

WISCONSINITES TOO LIKE TO TAKE MEALS TO EACH OTHER.  SUZ DID IT FOR ME ONCE.  JOJO
BROUGHT ME LEFTOVERS FROM SOME EVENT SHE HAD AT THE HOUSE AND THAT GAVE ME 5 
MEALS.  THAT IS IT.  OH, CAROL GAVE ME A GIFT CARD FOR PIZZA HUT AND BECAUSE OF A SALE I WAS ABLE TO TURN THAT INTO 8 MEALS.  BUT THAT WAS A CHRISTMAS GIFT SO DOES NOT COUNT.  NO ONE ELSE HAS DONE ANY THING FOR ME.  OTHER THAN SUZ DOING MY GROCERY 
SHOPPING AND THAT IS LIKE PULLING TEETH.  AH WELL, THAT IS LIFE.

WE ALSO HAVE THESE AWFUL WINDS.  WE HAVE WARNINGS OUT THROUGH WED NIGHT.
THEY ARE TERRIBLE.   WE HAVE HAD LOTS OF DAMAGE ON THE LAKE BECAUSE OF THE EARLY
THAW AND THEN THESE WINDS HAVE CAUSED ICE TSUNAMIS.   COMMONLY CALLED ICE
SHOVES.  HUGE CHUNKS OF ICE ARE SHOVED BY THE WIND OUT OF THE WATER AND ONTO LAND.  A GREAT MANY WHARVES AND BOAT HOUSES HAVE BEEN WRECKED AND SOME 
HOMES DAMAGED.  IT IS REALLY SOMETHING TO SEE.  ONE ALMOST DESTROYED THE 
FOND DU LAC YACHT CLUB.  AND DID WRECK A BOAT HOUSE RIGHT NEXT TO IT.
I WILL CERTAINLY PRAY FOR BARB AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR WINDOW GUYS!
LOVE AND HUGS,

Good Morning

I don't have an Irish Hump Day tag, so I'll just warn you that the Irish are Coming with this one!

Bless your heart for making me a beautiful Irish Unicorn, and especially when you are feeling so bad.  Thank you!!

Help me ~ it looks like another windy day!   My sinuses are not enjoying all this wind!   I guess it could be worse ~ we could have ice and snow, but I am not enjoying all this wind!  

The new mattress felt wonderful when I first laid down ~ no holes!   Throughout the night, though, I discovered that it is a lot harder than my old mattress as well.  It will take some getting used to.  I woke up stiff this morning.  :-(   I will try it for a week, and then I will bring up the King Size feather bed that has been living in the basement since we discovered that the old bed was so high that the Feather bed just made that situation worse.   Of course I'll have to have it cleaned since it's been in the basement all this time, but it just might work.   This bed is a tiny bit lower, so adding the FB will just bring it back up to the height of the old bed.   I'd rather not do that, but I do love sleeping on a feather bed.

Thanks for your prayers for Barb.  I haven't heard yet how she did, but I will let you know.

One positive thing about all this awful wind is that the seal in the window is no longer broken and there is no longer any moisture between the panes ~~ as long as the wind is blowing, anyway.   Sadly, when it stops, the problem returns.  Champion guy is coming tomorrow and the other one on Monday.  I'm really tired of having someone come out to tell us how much money we are going to owe every other day.  Ha!

Once we get the window replaced (assuming we can!), we need to get all the windows washed and the carpet cleaned before Mike's sister and brother-in-law come to visit in May, and maybe Laine will come, too.  I should be so grateful for neighbors who want to include us and family who want to visit us.  Should be . . .   lol

Today is "National Women's Day" and all women are going on strike to show how terrible "A Day without Women" will be!   I don't honestly think Mike would notice the difference if I went on strike today ~~ he does most of the work.  LOL   I saw that good old George Soros has donated some $249 million to their "cause", so that alone would keep me on the job.  I honestly don't know what they are protesting, but I am looking forward to seeing the disgusting costumes and reading the obscene signs again.   Suuurrre, I am.  Ha.

I'm sure everyone would be shocked if you told them just how you are really feeling ~ and then they would stumble for words, because really, what can one say.  Ideally, they wouldn't say anything, but would come with meals or offers to take you for a ride or something, but everyone is so busy, I fear that isn't likely to happen.  For myself, if I lived next door I would include you when we call out for meals or go for carry out, because I don't do very much cooking myself at all anymore.   I offered to do anything Barb, next door, needed, but the whole neighborhood knows how worthless that suggestion is.  I am nervous about cooking for others anymore, because everyone is so fussy and only wants what they always have.   I can't clean for myself, so I surely can't clean for her, though I did offer Shauna's services as my treat.    She declined anything I could do.  She mentors several young people had they are helping her for the first two weeks and her Church offered to make 10 meals for her, but she doesn't have freezer space so her "mentees" will get what she needs.   I'm just drawing a parallel to show you how worthless I would be if I WERE close enough to do something for you.   Some days I really hate being me.   I do know how lucky I am, of course, but I can't help wishing I were a bit luckier.  ha.

Obviously I was concerned about your having meals while your mom is away, and that's why I sent "Grandma" to help a bit, but I can't know what you would enjoy or how much freezer space you have and I feel helpless to help.  :-(   I really hate what you are going through ~ and that's worthless, as well.

Hang in there.  Sending prayers and good thoughts.

RIGHT NOW I DO NOT HAVE A LOT TO SAY, I AM TIRED AND READY TO GO TO BED.  I HOPE YOUR NEW BED ADJUSTS TO YOU.  IF NOT THE FEATHER BED PILLOW TOP SOUNDS LIKE JUST THE THING.
TODAY JOSH CALLED AT NOON AND SAID HOW WOULD YOU LIKE SOME COMPANY FOR LUNCH. I'M BUYING.  SO HE GOT A&W AND BROUGHT IT. THEN HE ASKED WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO.  TOLD HIM I WAS STILL FIGHTING OFF BEING SICK.  HE REPEATED THE SO YOUR SICK.  SO THEN WE JUST CHATTED UNTIL HE HAD TO LEAVE TILL HE HAD TO GO BACK TO WORK.  I WOULD BET YOU ANYTHING HE WAS GOING TO ASK ME TO BABYSIT BUT DID NOT BECAUSE I STRESSED THAT I WAS STILL SICK.  STILL, PART OF ME SAYS I COULD DO IT AND THE OTHER PART SAYS JUST LET IT GO.  SO I AM....

I CAN JUST IMAGINE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE CLAMORING TO HELP BARB OUT.  SHE TOUCHES SO MANY LIVES.  SHE IS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO REALLY DO HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN HEAVEN.

I KNOW THAT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR WITH NATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY IS EQUALITY IN THE WORK PLACE.
THAT INCLUDES.  THAT INCLUDES POSITIONS AND PROMOTIONS AND WAGES AND SO MUCH MORE.  IT KILLS ME THAT IN THE DAY AND AGE THERE IS STILL SO MUCH INEQUALITY HERE.  THERE ARE PROBABLY MORE FEMALE HEAD OF HOUSEHOLDS THAN MALE ONES.  MEN AND WOMEN DOING THE SAME JOB SHOULD RECEIVE THE SAME WAGE.  WHAT FOOLS.

ANYWAY, I AM HEADING OFF TO BED.
CHAT WITH YOU TOMORROW.
HUGS,

Good Morning

We're back to summer.  Heading for 71 degrees, with no chance of snow  ;-)

This morning the guy from Champion Windows is coming to see what he can recommend for our window.   Since we have already made an appointment to talk to someone else about it on Monday, this will be one time when we don't just plan to take time to consider his suggestion/offer, but we actually will, at least until Monday.

We have nothing else planned for today, but tomorrow Shauna comes to clean.   I haven't heard how Barb is doing, but I will try to check in with her today.

Nice that Josh stopped by for a visit and to bring lunch ~ even if he did possibly have an ulterior motive.   I think it's good that you let him know you weren't up to babysitting even without his asking.    You may feel like taking care of her ~ playing with her ~ sometime soon, but until you do, you need to know that you don't have to if you don't want to, I think.   It's more about being in charge of your own little world than the actual baby sitting, I think.   You're vulnerable now.    Am I saying that right?  ;-)

Thank you for the beautiful tag!  Your creative juices certainly haven't dried up.  :-)


I did make a few cards yesterday with the Dragonflies I had cut out a few days before.  They turned out kind of cute.  I kept trying to find some inspiration on Pinterest, and ultimately just made something simple, but I think it worked ~ or rather 'they' did.  So, I'm a few cards ahead for a change.    I'm still looking for inspiration though.

The Mattress seemed less hard last night, but I still have been awake since 4AM.   It's gonna be a long day.

I'm going to give this mattress the rest of the week before I think about adding the feather bed.  I know there is usually a little adjustment with any new bed, like when you travel and sleep in someone else's bed.    

I hope you have a really good day.
