I think the next call to Matt should be as follows: Hi Matt!  Just who do we sue, when Mike or I fall and break a hip on this loose carpeting?  Maybe that will get some action.

You were not in the areas that got all the hail were you?  Or was that even Colorado?  I think it was, lol.  But I could be wrong.  Talk about having a brain fart.

So you will not let me have Shauna for Chris.  You know Chris and Scott can be quite entertaining is a bizarre sort of way. I refuse to get involved, I would just irritate my mom to know end.  If she is happy, then I supposed I must be too.  

Pump and Pantry is a Restaurant/Gas Station and they have the most delicious chicken in town.  When Josh was 4 and burned so badly, the day he was coming home they asked him what he wanted to eat and he said he wanted "Crispy, crunchy Pump and Pantry Chicken."  I think he ate the "crispy crunchy" skin from 4 pieces of chicken as it was his favorite part. 

I was worried when you said you took an aspirin, but since your INR was so low, you will be fine.  So happy you are feeling better, I hope it holds.

Now tell me all about him.  Where is he?  What is his name and is he any particular breed?  I know you have your favorites and were on a list for one. What is the wait and see part? I am so jealous but also happy.  Just hope he can tolerate being terrorised by Shogun.  But who knows, maybe he will put our boy in his place, lol.
Chat with you tomorrow.

Yeah.  Like that.

It's sunny here today but somewhat hazy and only heading for 66.  20% chance of rain.  Yesterday afternoon we had one of the hardest rains we've had in ages and it lasted for over half an hour ~ with HAIL!   Luckily we didn't get much hail at our house, but I shared some footage of the hail in Westminster (our neighboring town) on Facebook, and when we went out a couple of hours later, it looked like snow on the Golf Course and on the sides of the road!   

I think your idea is a good one.  No word from Matt yesterday.  I didn't really expect him to call, but I did want him to hear my voice.  (insert evil grin here).  I will call him tomorrow morning too, because if he plans to have Caesar come anytime, it will probably be tomorrow afternoon ~~ when the LaZboy Repair guys are here.  Heaven forbid he would check with me first!  This IS getting old fast.  I'm sure he hires outside contractors, like the carpet guy, as he needs them and he is subject to their availability, so it isn't easy ~~~ but darn it, that shouldn't be MY problem!

I am glad I sent the Strawberries (and the Graham Crackers).  They really were lovely.  Normally I don't even look at suggested Mother's Day gifts since neither of us has a mother, but these just tempted me and I'm glad they did.   I thought particularly this weekend might be hard for Katie, both being Mother's Day and the weekend of her brother's wife's baby shower.  She didn't attend that.  It was just too hard for her.   The items were all from Harry and David.

Oh, and speaking of gifts ~~ Christina was registered at Babies R Us, so I selected several things from there for her shower.  I couldn't get them gift wrapped so I sent them directly to her unwrapped.  I hate that!  I've always felt beautiful wrapping was part of the gift, and I SHOULD have had them sent to Mary Ann and asked her to wrap them for me.  I did that when Vince was born, but hated to keep imposing.  She would have been glad to do it ~ I can be such an idiot.   Anyway, they came, unwrapped, early EXCEPT for the Baby Book she wanted.  It was marked "in transit" on the UPS site and then all of a sudden it was marked "Pending".  Instead of jumping on that, I waited several days before I called Toys R Us, and learned from them that it was "Lost in Transit".  She reordered it for me and had it sent, but this time no UPS Tracking number!  I called again and they said it would be there Monday, so I sent a note to Aaron and Christina explaining what had happened and telling them that it would be too late for the shower, but it would be there.

Yesterday was the Shower and Mary Ann texted some pictures from the party and there was the Baby Book!  Oh, No!  Someone else got her one too ~ but since it was no longer on the Registry, how could that be!   I'm sure you are ahead of me ~~ the book in the picture is the one from us, and they'll be getting another one tomorrow or whenever!  If they had let me know it had arrived, I wouldn't have had the other one sent OR stressed myself to death trying to be sure she got it!  I'd like to smack them upside their sweet little heads!   I told Mary Ann that I guessed Christina would just have to have TWINS now!   Let THEM stress for a while!  LOL.

The Theme of the Shower was Kentucky Derby and all the ladies were dressed up with fancy hats.  Cute.  Mary Ann and Benji gave them the Car Seat and she showed a picture of how it was wrapped ~ after an hour and a half of trying.  LOL  Maybe it's a good thing I DIDN'T ask her to wrap my gifts for me.  

My mom was like that, too.  She was always the Peacemaker, and as you know, I am not.  She thought I should to react to things the way she did.  We were both disappointed ~~~ LOL

Pump and Pantry sounds grand!  I'm with Josh.  I like the crispy stuff the best, too!  

We're only in the thinking stage ~ or maybe more wrestling stage.  Lots to consider, including how nice a quieter and cleaner house is. Ha!  I said the little boy we were considering was 10, but he's 11, and yes he is from the Rescue site.  What gave it away that we weren't thinking about a two legged boy?   Bwahaaaaa.

Love 'n Hugs and have fun at Joanne's,

Dorothy

I have myself depressed again and do not have it in me to respond to all your comments.  You know I care and I love reading your notes.  But I do not have the attention span to respond.  I have been having bowel issues since changing the way I eat.  And this week has been tougher than most in that respect.  I woke up this morning with severe cramping.  And I finally went, but then it was followed by diarrhea.  Then a short time later more of the big D.  So when mom got home from church she commented that wasn't I going and I said no and why.  She said she understood but said several times she wished I was coming.  I am thinking that she was saying it to make me feel wanted but it made me feel guilty.  But the situation was beyond my control.  Then I think about what Nan said to me about my having Social Anxiety and that that is what makes me sick, so I do not have to go out.  I told her...well that may be so, but the sick is real so what can I do. The med I am on for depression is also for anxiety.  I am going to talk to Denise about adding something or changing meds.  But finding what works make take a while.  So you may have to deal with my crap for a while yet.
Oh, btw, I think adopting a 10-11 yr old boy of the 2 legged sort is just what you need. He could do all the running up and down the stairs for you and give Shogun a run for his money. On the downside he will put a considerable dent in your budget.  I think you had better stick with the cat, lol.

Good Morning.  

Another beautiful day, heading for a high of 70, which is just on the slightly cool side of purrrfect to me.   Mike wanted to run to the grocery store to pick up just a few things, and I'm still a bit nervous about letting him go alone, so I tagged along ~~ not that I could actually do anything if he did have a problem (laugh).  He did fine and we are home with cream for our coffee (and a few other things)

LaZboy is coming to give our new chairs more stuffing this afternoon.  Matt did call yesterday and apologized for not returning my call.  He is still trying to get a time commitment from Caesar, and apologized, and I was nice too. (chuckle)   I told him they couldn't come this afternoon.

I also got the sweetest email from Aaron, apologizing for not answering my earlier emails where I told them about the problem with the Baby Book, and he thanked us for everything including Vince's books.  They were all sick last week and getting ready for the shower which was held at their house, so they had their hands full.  I will need to answer and tell him they are likely to get a second Baby Book and that I guess Christina will just have to have twins.  LOL

I'm so sorry you got sick again. I suspect it is due to the combination of the meds you take and changing your diet, but what can you do.  Talking to Denise is a good idea ~ and the sooner the better.  I really am sorry you couldn't go to Joanne's, but I hope your mom had a good time.

I do think a adopting a two legged boy would be a great idea, but I really need to adopt a Grandson or Great Grandson, someone to take care of US in our old age, which apparently is NOW.  We need a tall, agile "boy" quite often around here ~ LOL

Thank you for the bee-u-tiful tag!  It's lovely.

Feel better and have a Mahvelous Monday!

I am better today, but too many pity parties lately. That is why I will be talking to Denise. I wish I could go to counseling, but that is not in the budget. I know what a lot of my issues are, but not how to get beyond them. I know that a great many of my issues all relate back to my father. But I do not know how to move beyond them.  For many I have...my Family Living teacher in high school told me I should go into psychiatry or counseling because I so understood my issues and where they came from. They mostly relate to my father. I was afraid of him when he was drinking. We all were. Everyone who knew him from work and the bar thought he was a nice guy. They did not see him at home with us.  It could be a living hell.  Ack! I do not want to get into all that, so for now, love me or leave me. But I know you will stay because you love me!  smiley84   
Oh I do hope that Lazy-Boy can plump up your chairs with more padding. I think that it the first thing to go in chairs.  The seat gets all packed down and it is not comfortable any more.  I added a cushion to mine in the living room a long time ago.  It helps though it still is uncomfortable some days.  Mom added one to hers too.  Hers is a motorized recliner too, and her seat seems very hard to me.
She went to the doctor today.  She went from going once a month, to every 2 months and she was told today that she can go to 3 months.  Woo Hoo.  She has been having a lot of shoulder pain lately and is barely able to move her arm. So she is seeing her Ortho tomorrow. We were so shocked that she is getting in so quickly. I hope he can help her.

Glad you talked to Aaron. Will the 2nd book have to go back to the store?  They will probably get notice that both were delivered. Or maybe not since it was lost in transit.

Today was the big reveal.  Nerissa, Matt and Samuel are expecting a baby girl in September.  I can tell that Rissa is just ecstatic.  She was such a fun little girl and after every birthday party, when all had gone but our group of friends, she would put on a fashion show of all the clothes she got as gifts. When we used to go to the cottage way back when, there was a little country store in Darcy...a tiny little town near by. They had the best ice cream. I remember finding an outfit that was crop top and skirt that were in a wild hawaiian pattern and it had a matching parasol.  I had to buy it for her and she wore it the whole time we were up there.  She was so adorable.  Then when Kirstie came along she had competition in cuteness, lol.  They were both wonderful little girls that grew up to be wonderful women.  I love them so much.  Sometimes I think more than I love my own nephews.  But I was very hands on the Louann and Bruce's kids and I babysat for them a lot. It makes me sad that I am not able to do that with their kids. I would so love that.  I was Liam's first babysitter, but it was only for half an hour or so.  But I just sat and held him while he slept. Nan got very nervous with him when he was new born because he was so small.  I really did not remember babies being that small. Now I am feeling very nostalgic in a wonderful relaxing way.  Can I go back in time for a do over? I would change so many things in my life. But then I would not be me and I would not have you!  And you make me happy.  I love you.
Chat with you tomorrow.

Hello

I had a really good day yesterday, followed by a horrid night!  Everything that can go wrong has been going wrong, but yesterday everything went right for a change.  Mike got some groceries in and we are going to get a delivery on Friday maybe for everything else we need.  He really was doing well, but then lost steam.

The man from LaZboy came at the appointed time and he was wonderful.  Very professional and knowledgable ~ he had his own upholstery business for 45 years ~ and so personable.  We had the best conversation.  He told us about his wife of 40 years who died 5 years ago after a long illness and how she was into Stampin Up and he had to get rid of so many supplies after she left.   He is remarried now.  Like visiting with a friend ~~ but with the bonus of getting "new" chairs.   He added padding to both the seats and the back, and they are great.  The seats had seemed 'thin' but the real problem was that they slanted back from the front edge and were hard to get out of for both of us.  I'm so glad I didn't just say "Well darn." but called to ask for help, because they were indeed able to fix them AND they were under warranty so there was no charge!    While he was here, Mike asked him to look at one of our other LaZboys in the Morning Room that squeeks terribly when he sits in it.  Drives me crazy!   It's really old but LaZboy warranties parts for life, you just have to pay for labor.  Anyway, he found several problems and fixed them and now it's blessedly silent.  I expected to pay for it ~ and it would have been worth it ~ but he said 'No charge'!  

Then Bill called.  He had been working on the Sprinkler system again for the last couple of days, and he said it was fixed!   Hooray!

Why, then, was I not able to sleep At All last night?!  Finally at 4AM I got up and took some Aspirin and while i was still awake at 5:30, when Mike got up at 6 he woke me, so I must have caught at least 20 minutes.   Aarrgghh.   Of course I feel awful.

Mike has his appointment to get his new partial at 11:30 and he thinks she will need to drill his teeth some to make them fit.  I dunno, but he is not looking forward to the appointment.  I just pray that they fit perfectly and feel good.  

I'm glad you are feeling better.  It is too bad you can't go for counseling ~ but hey.  That's what girlfriends are for, isn't it?  Not that I have any brilliant insight to share, but I suspect you don't need someone to tell you what to do or how to feel, you just need an opportunity to talk, and talk as much as you need to in order to get it out.  That, I am good at.  I can sit here all day and listen.  ;-)   I do love you, and I am here for you!

I can't actually relate personally.  My dad died before I was three.  From everything I know about him, he was a good man, a true Southern gentleman.   Well, except for telling my Yankee mother that he was 16 before he learned that Damn Yankee was actually two different words.  LOL    I think I would have loved knowing him and growing up with a dad, but it was not to be and like you, I did fine having a strong, good mother to teach me that women didn't really NEED men, they simply enhanced your life and that if we have to, we can stand on our own.

How exciting ~ a Girl!   Ours, Miss Lily, will be here a bit sooner, but I probably wont meet her in person until she is 25.  I'll be over 100 then, so I might not even know that I am meeting her ~ LOL.   You at least will get to hold her and love her.  You must feel a bit like a Grandma, having watched her mom and aunt grow up.

I'll check out on those happy thoughts and get dressed so I can go with Mike to his appointment.    Have a happy day!

Good Morning.  Happy Hump Day 

Mike's dental appointment was a breeze and his new partial is perfect.  I felt horrible after my night with only about 20 minutes sleep, but I suggested we go to The Egg and I for brunch and after my favorite Wisconsin Scramble, I felt better.  Protein!  LOL.  

No word from Matt yet.  Sigh.  I did sleep well last night, thank God, so I'm feeling ok today, and mercifully we have no plans. (Laugh)  

I hope you are feeling better and all is going well.

Love ya

So sorry that I did not make it in yesterday.  Busy is not even the word for it.  We got a ton of asparagus from Joanne (they grow it) And we had to cut it up and blanch it for freezing.  We even gave some to Chris.  I do not know how big their patch is but she gave just as much to my sister Diane also.  I love it!  Mom was supposed to leave out some uncut for broiling but she forgot. Louann makes the best asparagus by brushing the stalks with oil of some sort and seasoning and then broiling it. Heavenly.  The stalks are a bit crisp and tender inside and delicious.  But we blanched them all.  Then it was on to mom's checkbook, oh yes, she was hundreds of dollars off.  When I did it, it was about $800 off  So I am going to have to rewrite 2 months of her checkbook, because last month she "balanced" it.  Yeppers!
I had to walk away from it.  I revisited it a bit today and nothing jumped out at me, so will do the rewrite tomorrow. Then I remembered that I needed to make cookies for today.  So I made the cookie dough and left it sit for a bit as I wanted to watch a show on TV and then I was baking cookies after 10pm.
I made cinnamon chip walnut cookies and they are delicious..
Then this morning Louann calls an she has a cold, do I still want to come?  I had to say no. Thank God she goes into my appts with Dr. Hatahet so she knows his lectures to me about not being around anyone sick.  She did say that if I was not coming then Nan was not coming in either. That made me happy since then they would not be watching Selfridge without me.  I hate it when I have to miss segments and they have to tell be what is happening.  But I am so bummed out.  Was so looking forward to today.  Crafts, Selfridge, Food and Friendship what more could you ask for?  I wish you could meet my friends...I am sure you would love them.  Especially Nan...though she is a diehard Democrat and wants Sanders.  Still, you would love to get into a debate with her.  She would give you a run for your money. She is older than my group and came from California. Met her at work and we became friends.  I was so drawn to her.  She fit right in with my group of friends.  Anywho, that's what's up with me.

Yay for Lazy-Boy! They rock!! So great that Mike took advantage of them being there to ask about the other chair and that they fixed that too.  Woo Hoo!  Another Woo Hoo for the sprinkler being fixed (I hope). Another good thing in your day.
I wish you could sleep better.  I wonder why you are having so much trouble now.  I know I go in streaks and when I cannot sleep, it will usually last a while.  But have not had that issue in a while.  I so wish you were not having it. I know how hard days are when you have not slept.  Woot woot!!!  Mike's partial fits and feels good.  Wonderful!!  Girls Rock!!  We both are on baby watch for a little girl.  How fun!!  I would feel like a grandma if the kids were more interactive with me.  But there are always cousins to play with and that is more exciting.  Finn called me grandma once.  I think he got confused because his grandma is Louann and I am too.  But it was funny at the time and we joke that I am his grandma.
OMG, Josh was just here and had supper with us.  Bean and Ham soup.  For dessert he ate 8-9 of my cookies.  He loved them.  He would have are more but he needs to lose weight.  Now he thinks we need to go into business and sell them, lol.
I will chat with you tomorrow.

 I'm Baaaa-ack.   We had a lovely breakfast at the OPH.  It's about a 45 minute drive both ways, but it's a beautiful day and we both enjoyed the drive.

Yesterday morning Matt called and asked if they could come over and do the carpet in about half an hour.   You bet!   Caesar and another guy came and did a beautiful job.  You can't even tell where the hole for the original electrical outlet was.  Oh, how i love having the outlet behind the table instead of right out there in what always seemed to me "the middle of the floor".  

We are talking about work done in MY house though, so Heaven forbid everything would go well.  The guys came in without Matt and were in an all fired hurry, and moved the table without unplugging the lamp, and it crashed to the floor and exploded into a million pieces.   We both loved that lamp.  I had it before we were married.  It was tall enough to be a good reading lamp, had a small enough footprint on the base not to take too much space on the table and was amber glass which sort of tied in the brown and red things in the room.  It was also just a good looking lamp ~ and you can NOT find another like it.   Matt said he would get one to replace it, and I said "Thank you, no.  We'll choose our own lamp."  He texted me a while later and said after looking for over an hour, he couldn't come close and asked how much we had paid for the one that was broken.  Hmmm.  Well, it was over 40 years ago.  I'm afraid I haven't a clue.  Ha.   So, I'm expecting him to pay something for it, but I'm afraid we are going to have a hard time finding one we both like as well.  I did tell him that I found a Murano Glass lamp with a similar shape and color that listed for $2695.00.  Suppose I gave him heart palpitations?  LOL.  I was kind and assured him I was just kidding.

And so it goes.

 I would have had a good night's sleep except that at 2:20 AM, Mike had a

 bad dream and yelled, waking me up.  He went right back to sleep but it 

took me about half an hour.  Still, that's a lot better than I've been doing.

What a lovely post!  Your tags are brilliant ~ and that in spite of your busy, busy day.  Thank you so much for mine!!   Ah, and now the fun of the battle of the checkbooks. How fun!   I did get the infamous Budget Book done ~ thank goodness.  Glad to have that behind me!  

Ah, another fun thing, the text is changing on me and overlapping, so I had to change it.  Tiresome!   Wow ~ it's a good thing you like asparagus!  We do too, but maybe not quite that much.  ;-)  The cookies, on the other hand . . . .  

I'm sorry you couldn't go for your fun day, but I know that was a good idea.  You don't need to be getting sick again!

I'm not so sure Nan and I would be best buds.  I do enjoy a lively discussion with someone who can allow a differing opinion to be expressed, but I dunno.  It's hard to think of two more totally opposite candidates than Bernie and Ted.  lol.   At least they are both men of honor who are true to their beliefs   (even though Bernie's beliefs are totally wrong). LOL

Thanks again for my spectacular tag.  Have a great day!

I did not make the Star Wars tag on my busy day, I just got around to sharing it with you.  I had it all done, but was waiting on the tube to come.  It was late being delivered to me.  So I just had to put it into the tag and then go to AS to finish it up.  I did not want the starburst at the top of the light saber but it ended abruptly and I had no other way of hiding it.  I hate it that the artist make their art end at the edge.  Then when the art is tubed  wings, hair, arms, whatever just cut off and you have to deal with how to make it work in your tag.
I so miss going out for breakfast. I would love to do that.  I want a really good omelette and some texas toast.  Or maybe some hashbrowns.  Fresh OJ and fruit.  What did you have?
Hip hip Hooray, the carpet is done and you are happy with the results.  Oh crap, they broke your lamp.  Lamps are mostly so ugly looking these days.  And the shades too.  And expensive!  Though everything is more expensive.  To find a tall one is not easy either. Lamp shopping is really annoying and frustrating.  Better to only need one, because you rarely find anything nice in pairs, lol.
Maybe you need to try sleeping with earplugs.  I have built in ones, lol.  So I do not hear much of anything and sleep well.
 Yes, maybe you and Nan would not be good friends, but I would love to listen to you both debate the candidates because you both have a vast knowledge of politics and the candidates.
Right now I am a wee bit annoyed at my friends. Since, because Bruce was disappointed that we all were not coming, Louann called Nan and she did come in.  So now I am not only left out when I am sick but also when one of them is sick. I should be happy that they had a good time.  But what about my disappointment?  I said I hoped they had not started Selfridge without me.  There are a million things they could watch instead.  So why couldn't Bruce patiently wait like I have to.  Now Louann says we will get together next Wed after we go to my Dr. appt.  I wrote her back that that was fine, but that crafting would probably be out and not sure how well movie viewing would be since the appt is my yearly eye exam and my eyes will be dilated.  My eye takes a long time to return to normal vision.  So we will see.
After taking a fresh look at moms checkbook today and re-calculating the past two months, I finally saw the mistake staring me in the face.  You know how you have certain bills that are every month.  Mom marked May ones as being back in instead of Aprils, though she had them checked off too.  Once I found all the check that were outstanding and subtracted from current balance we were correct right to the penny.  I swear, I wish she would just let me do it. She also writes small and light and I cannot tell what a lot of her numbers are.  I have asked her to write larger and in pencil, but it just doesn't happen.  So tomorrow I will do mine and pay her what I owe her for the month.  I also need to call and make an appt to talk to the state person to see if I still qualify for them to pay my medicare cost.  If I do not, I will be in deep doo doo.  I sure cannot afford paying out another 100 or so a month, so wish me luck.
Well, since I want to read a little before bed, I will say good night.  Chris will be cleaning tomorrow.
Chat with you tomorrow my dear friend.
XOXOXO

Good Morning.   Happy Friday the 13th!

I'm late because Mike and I are still struggling with the idea of adopting an 11 year old boy.  We had to talk, and talk, and talk, and still not reach a conclusion.  

Another beautiful day today, with nothing much planned.  I'm going to make a chili rellano hot dish for dinner, and wade through my emails and news groups.  I'd love to have a day with absolutely nothing hanging over my head ~~~ but when I think of what others are dealing with had how good I really have it, how dare I even think about complaining! 

Barbara got home yesterday and I put up the last of her Togo Posts.

I wish we could just swing by and pick you up when we go to one of our favorite restaurants for breakfast, lunch OR dinner!  You do have so many wonderful places but I think you would like ours too, and I think we would have so much fun eating and talking ~ probably at the same time.  ;-)

The OPH (Original Pancake House) is about 45 minutes away from us, so an hour and a half just to get there and back.  We don't go as often as we used to.  They have a wonderful cheese omelet that is baked and we share it.  I can't imagine how one person could eat the whole thing, but I've seen 'em do it.  Ha.  It comes with a small order of pancakes, which Mike took home for a snack ~~ with chocolate sauce!   I ordered a bacon side, four lovely pieces, and Mike brought some of that home too.  they do have the most wonderful bacon!  He ordered green chili to pour over his 2/3 of the omelet, and we started with a fairly good sized bowl of huge, delicious strawberries which had been cut into bite sized pieces and were served with whipped cream.   Did you notice?  All pretty low carb!   (For all the good it's doing me!)

We looked and looked online for a lamp, but really saw nothing we liked ~~ except that Murano Glass one, which I don't think we'll be getting.  Somehow a nearly $3000 lamp might just make all the rest of our furniture look pretty shabby.  Ha!   I sooooo don't want to have to do this, but what can you do?

I understand your friends still wanting to get together, but I even more understand your disappointment at being left out.  :-(

I'm so glad you found your mom's checkbook error.  I do know just what you mean about looking right at a problem and not being able to see it.  In my old programming days, I would stare and stare at something that was wrong and not be able to see it.  Then I would ask someone else to look at it for me, and when I explained the problem to them I would see my error right away.  I should have kept a dummy in my cube to explain things too, cuz I always found the error myself as soon as I tried to show the situation to someone else.  lol

Since nothing has changed, I'm sure you still qualify for help, but I'll cross my fingers for you anyway ~~~~ and for Chris actually coming today and doing a good and complete job!   Don't pay her in advance!!

Happy Friday!

Good Morning

In the other group, everyone was thinking sunshine and flowers today, so I did too, though that is definitely not what I'm seeing outside of my window.  It's currently 46 heading for a high of 66 with a 10% chance of rain.  It looks like a 90% chance of rain right now, but the forecast is probably right.

I'm so sorry you lost your good post ~~ sorry for your wasted effort, and sorry for me cuz I didn't get to read it.   Hopefully everything will go better today.

OK, WELL HERE WE GO AGAIN.

IT SNOWED HERE TODAY.  NOT GOT VERY LONG AND NO ACCUMULATION.  THAT FOR A SHORT WHILE THE FLAKES WERE A FLYING.

WHY ARE YOU STRUGGLING WITH GETTING THE OLD BOY??  WHAT ARE YOUR CONCERNS?  DO YOU GET A TRIAL PERIOD IN CASE IT DOES NOT WORK OUT.  WE WOULD NOT WANT OUR LITTLE BOY TORTURING THE OLD BOY ALL THE TIME.

BARB IS A SAINT.  THANKS FOR SHARING HER LETTERS WITH ME.  THEY ARE SO INTERESTING.  ONLY 2 WEEKS AND AWAY AGAIN, WOW.  NO REST FOR THE WEARY.  HOW OLD IS SHE?  I LOVE THAT SHE WAS MAKING BALLOON ANIMALS FOR THE KIDS AND WOMEN.  WE HAVE FILLED TONS OF THOSE SHOEBOXES FOR OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD. I AM ASTOUNDED THAT THEY GET THEM SO LATE.  THEY ARE FILLED LATE OCT, EARLY NOV.  IT IS TOO BAD THAT THEY DID NOT GET THEN FOR CHRISTMAS.  I DONATED MY BEANIE BABY COLLECTION TO THEM LAST YEAR SO THAT EACH KID WOULD GET A SMALL STUFFED TOY.

HMMMM, A MURANO GLASS LAMP.  WOULD'NT OUR LITTLE BOY JUST LOVE KNOCKING THAT ON THE FLOOR?  NO NO NO, SAY NO TO MURANO.

GREEN CHILI'S. ARE THEY HOT?  THEY ALWAYS TALK ABOUT GREEN CHILI'S IN THE SAMANTHA SWEET BOOKS.  SO I AM WONDERING ABOUT IT'S HOTNESS. I WANT TO TRY THEM BUT NOT IF THEY ARE HOT.  I AM THINKING THEY MIGHT BE SINCE YOU ARE NOT EATING THEM.

CHRIS DID CLEAN.  BUT I AM SURE SHE WAS HERE UNDER 2 HOURS SO SHE DID NO EXTRAS.  SHE WAS GOING TO WAX THE FLOOR BUT MOM TOLD HER NOT TO AS IT DOES NOT LAST.  I THINK IT WOULD LAST 2 WEEKS. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW.

I CALLED TO SCHEDULE MY INTERVIEW FOR THAT STATE ASSIST WITH MEDICARE PREMIUM AND THE WOMAN JUST WENT AHEAD AND DID THE INTERVIEW.  ALL I HAVE TO DO NOT IS SEND THEM A COPE OF MY CHECKING ACCOUNT SHOWING MY BALANCE.  AM GOING TO WAIT TILL MOM CASHES THE CHECK I GAVE HER THEN MY BALANCE WILL BE ABOUT $25.00.  YEAH, SINCE ELECTRIC AND INSURANCE ALL WENT UP AND OUR CHECK DID NOT, I SHOULD STILL QUALIFY.  STILL, I WILL FEEL BETTER WHEN I GET CONFIRMATION THAT I HAVE IT.  

WELL, I WILL CHAT WITH YOU TOMORROW.

XOXOXO
