Good Morning

Did you survive Halloween?  Ours was very quiet, as we had anticipated.  Aaron did call to FaceTime with me so Vince could thank us for his Halloween book and he and Lily could show us their costumes.  So cute.   Of course I'm so out of touch I had no idea who he was supposed to be, I'm guessing an action character with a helmet and a shield and the letter "A".   I didn't want to ask him and reveal my ignorance.  ha.  Lily was Super Girl, though at 2 months old, I'm not sure she knew it.  

Anyway, I did hear from all three families and it appears that the books and the cards were a big hit.  It was a big hit with me that I actually heard from all of them.  lol

I will have pictures to share, as soon as I get my act together.  It's quite 'apart' right now.  smiley82 

Your new skin and sign in sheet are great, as always.  Thank you for doing that for us.

I'm sorry you are having so much trouble with your computer and/or your internet service.  It sounds like you might need a new PC.  :-(

Mike's chili was delicious, and "warm" but he doesn't make it HOT, because I can't enjoy it that way.  He doesn't like it super hot anymore either, though he still likes it hotter than I do.   I imagine everyone does.  Ha.   Anyway, it was delicious, and my corn bread turned out ok too.

Good morning  

Help me ~ another bad night's sleep last night.  Shogun usually gets under the covers at 4 or 5 AM, but last night he hopped under around 10 PM, and didn't get up until 6:30 this morning.  Oooooh, how I envied him!

Cooler today, only in the very low 60s.  We'll see how long that lasts.

Here I go again.  I lost this post once, so cross your fingers that I make it through my post.
I had a good time at my friends yesterday though I was not feeling my best (bowel issues).  Reign is so good and every episode is exciting.  It does not hurt that the main characters are   so good looking too! lol It is the story of Mary Queen of Scots.    I think we watched 4 episodes yesterday.  We went to The Oar House for dinner.  Nan and I each chose and entree and we split them since we were both trying to decide between the same 2 items. So I ordered the rib eye sandwich and she ordered a Gyro. I also ordered the onion petals with a wonderful horseradish dip.  The food was so good. I ate my half of the Gyro first and about half of the onion petals and I could eat no more.  So my half steak sandwich and the onion petals were my supper tonight.  Maybe that is why they give you two containers of the horseradish dip instead of putting it in a bigger container.  I kept mixing up that and the sauce for the gyro, haha.  But it was wonderful and the left overs heated up well.

I still need to fix the skin. It is not what I wanted. But it will wait.

Today I paid the bills including my own. This is the earliest that I have ever done both.  Though I told mom not to cash her check from me till tomorrow, lol. As if she had any way to do that. But it feels so good to have it out of the way.  We have to get the house cleaned up as Chris cleans on Friday.

Sounds to me like Vince was Captain America and he is one of the Avengers. Come on woman, you need to know these things. Actually, I knew it was Capt. America, but I had to check if he was an Avenger and I found out he was the 1st one.  Just a great trivia question, if anyone ever asks you who was the first Avenger.

Well damn, those emoticons never work when you want them to. I just wanted one that was laughing.

Monday was beautiful and got up to 71.  Tues more cloudy though still in the 60's...same for the rest of the week. You guys get such highs and lows all in the same day.

I forgot to tell you that Jordan quit his job and gave Suz a stupid excuse for why.  I told him not to quit until he had something else, jeepers, it only makes sense. He had an interview for McDonald's today..they pay more than he made at his other job and he will not have to travel 45 min each way in Winter like his other job.  He also applied at another place in Campbellsport which is only a 20 min drive each way.  We will see. He looked like a freak when I saw him briefly on his birthday.  Mom just told me he is working at the Camp. one as that was through a temp agency and it would last through the first of the year, but he still wants McDonalds...I think he thinks it will be easy and fun. I said if you do your job right, it will not be easy as their is a lot of work. Who wants to be a frier all day long!  I suppose it could be fun...any job can be fun...depends on how you look at it.  I know it would be better to work in town, I told him to apply after he gets off work.  A manager could be encouraged that you are currently working.  Oh well, they always know better.

So that is enough crap from me!

XOXOXO

Miracles still happen!

After 108 years,

The CUBS won the

World Series! 

Now we have to believe that anything can happen!

I hadn't watched a baseball game for YEARS, but I did watch the game last night, and it was amazing.  The Cubs were up for the first half. Then the Indians caught up!  Then the Cubs were up by 2, and in the bottom of the 10th, they were only up by 1, and with an Indians runner on base.  Then it happened!   Maybe there is even hope for our election!

My tape was in our mailbox.  The mail hadn't been delivered by the time we went to the library to share a drink, and I didn't go out to get it later.  I don't know when it actually was delivered, but they posted the notification at 11PM!  

I was glad to get it actually a few days earlier than they had predicted, but when I used it yesterday, I had fits with it.  First I am using a glitter card stock and the die is full of intricate swirls and curls.  I removed the protection from one side of the tape and adhered it to my glitter paper and ran it through my Big Shot ~ twice.  Because of the backing on the tape side, I couldn't even tell if it had cut through. The cuts did not go through the backing, so I had to pull the backing off to see what I had.  It had all been cut, but OhMyGosh, trying to pull all the now sticky little bits and pieces off so I could adhere the Santa face and beard to my cardstock ~ well, it would take more words than you would want to read, but it was HARD.  It was much harder to cut the glitter cardstock than it had been the regular cardstock as well, so the combination of these two new elements was a serious challenge!   I ran another piece of glitter card stock through the Big Shot without the tape, and just applied glue to all the curls and swirls.  Also very time consuming and I'll definitely run out of the fine tip glue long before I finish all the cards if I do it that way.   There were a few other unexpected issues, too, and now I'm really not sure just WHAT to do.  I do think "Santa" is pretty, though.

Thanks for the beautiful Thanksgiving Tag.  I must say "Great Minds", and then I will say no more for now.  You will understand later.  LOL

I'm so glad you had a lovely evening out.  We still haven't watched Reign ~ we keep forgetting, and we're always looking for something.  

I got the first of the month money transferred, and the check books and savings accounts balanced ~~ BUT ~~ I haven't updated the dread Budget Book in TWO Months.  When you hear a stream of profanity coming from the South, you'll know what it is.  I'm going to put it off for today too because I have to get all my stuff picked up and stored away ~ somewhere! ~ from my Temporary Craft Room so Shauna can clean the Morning Room tomorrow.  I've had her skip it the last two times!   What a serious pain in my tush, but it must be done so the Budget Book will wait a while longer.   It ain't gonna be pretty when I finally get to it!

Captain America!  That makes sense!  I hated that I couldn't comment on it, but I didn't want to show my ignorance.  LOL   So, now I know!  Thank you.  ;-)

I feel as you do about Jordan quitting his job before he gets a new one, but it does sound like it will be better not to have to drive for 45 minutes.   I remember Wisconsin winters, and even here there are definitely days when I wouldn't want to have to be on the highway for that long every day.   I hope it works out!

Thanks again for the beautiful tag!

Today was a do nothing day. I am tired and do not feel like doing anything, I forgot to attach my oxygen to my Cpap last night so of course I did not get enough oxygen all night, but it is not the first time I have done that and it will not be the last. Still, I am so tired all the time. I bought a chin strap but do you think that I can find it? No!!

Today I was checking Shopko's site for Recliners and they have a Simmons Cuddler Recliner on sale for $349.00, $500 off. Out of stock on line. Also not in stock here is Fond du Lac. They do have one in Beaver Dam. Which is about 45 min away. I am almost afraid to buy it without trying it, thought it is made for 2 to cuddle in, so it should be fine. If I wanted to go try it, Suz would have to take me and my WC but then we could not bring it home. She would have to take a small trailer behind their vehicle. But we would have to wait till Sat. when Jerry could drive and they only have one. I think it will be a lost cause. I know with the holidays coming there will be a lot of sales. I want to clear off my narrow little single bed and use the headraiser pillow I have and try that again. Who knows, maybe I can make it work. Time will tell.

Wow, seems you ran into a world of trouble with your current card project. I think you should try one again and just assume it has cut through to the backing. Then remove all the little areas between and then pull the backing. It may just work fine that way. If not, it is just one you have wasted. Does everyone of the little schniggles need to be glued down? Maybe just prime areas? I think you will have to try some trial and error. I wish you luck with it. Ok great minds...it am thinking you made some Thanksgiving cards and used the same bible quote that I did, lol. Am I close?

I had not heard that the Cubbies won the Series. Good for them. Now I suppose those damn Bears will get big ideas. lol. I love a story like the Cubs winning for the first time in so long.  There is just something "Right" about a story like that. It is a feel good story and even though if you do not like them, you have to be happy for them. Wis. has a long time dislike of the Chicago teams..not sure why as many do not think highly of people from Illinois in general. It is stupid all around. They call them FIBS. Have you heard of that. So stupidly silly.

Any who, time to say good night, or good morning since that is what it will be when you read this.
XOXOXO

Wow, seems as if Aimoo is having issues.

I cannot see any borders so it looks as if it 

is not a good time to mess with the skin.

I slept till noon today. I hate that. Yet still kept 

dozing off until around 3 when I finally woke up

for real. I have been going to bed but laying in

there awake forever. I need to pick up the 

natural herb for sleep and see if that helps.

This is ridiculous.

I just spent some of my birthday money on

Amazon.  Got a new and bigger flashdrive case/

organizer and I got a remote caddy so that the

remotes will be easy to find and It will hold my 

phone and mail too. I am trying to make myself

more organized.

I do not have any more tags at the moment.

I am trying to get caught up with a couple of the

 always lists I am on. One has over 80 tags for

 me to pick up. Dear Lord have mercy. I am

 thinking about quitting several groups and one

 is the CDO diamond one with all the challenges.

 But a years dues is $100 and mine is due

 around Christmas. It does get me lots of good

 deals but it is so costly at this time of year. My

 Prime comes due around then too. I just cannot

 let it go though. It is worth the money. I also

 need to quit 2 games I play...Pet City on my

 laptop and Pet Buddies on my iPad. I spend too

 much money on them too. I have an addictive

personality and when I like and enjoy something 

I go overboard. I really need to look at my future.

My mom will not be around a lot longer and then

where will I be?  I need to get money off my

credit cards, not on them. I have learned nothing 

from my first go round with this. It needs to stop.

I have enough tubes to last me a lifetime.  I do

not need more. I should not be spening money

on pixels in a game.  I think I will have to go 

cold turkey if I cannot play the games without 

spending. I am going to try and get my act

together by the end of the year or I will have to

use the cold turkey method with the new year.

So you have heard my dirty little secret

 indulgences here and my commitment to do 

something about them. Whew...good to get

off my chest. Hopefully speaking about it will

help me.

Jason's team lost their game tonight.  29-32

I do not know if that puts them out of the 

playoffs or not. They were playing Kimberly and

were very evenly matched.  After they had scored

last I knew we were in trouble, there was enough

time for the other team to get ahead but not 

enough for us to retaliate so they needed to hold

them, but what I feared happened. It was a good 

game to watch while shopping, lol.

Chris did not manage to clean today, she had to 

babysit so she asked if she could clean Sat.  

Now she says, very drunkenly, that she is leaving

at noon with a girlfriend. She will be over early.

As drunk as she is, I do not think early will 

happen. Sun is out of the question so it will

probably end up being Mon.  Sun we are going

to Joanne's to celebrate David and Josh's 

birthdays.  So we will be there.

Chat with you tomorrow.

Hugs,

Good Morning 

I'm so sorry I didn't get in yesterday.  I had gotten no sleep at all on Thursday night and by the time Shauna left, I was really whumped.  I read your posts but I knew I couldn't write anything coherent.  I fully intended to come back later, but as the afternoon progressed I felt worse and worse.

After Shauna left, I napped for a while in the chair "watching" TV, and then Mike wanted to pick up some groceries so I went with him. After dinner I really felt sick, so that was my day.   At least Shauna did get the "Morning room" cleaned.  I had all my crafting stuff up there every time she came ~ I think it had been six weeks since it was cleaned!   It really doesn't get all that dirty, but still ~ six weeks.  All done now, and I will put the crafting stuff back up today.

Mike has been productive.  He got a new battery for the Chrysler on Thursday.  All the diagnostics said it was ok, but it kept dying and needing to be recharged.  The heck with the diagnostics, he got a new one!  Then yesterday he got the oil changed in the Lincoln while Shauna was here and later got groceries.  I think he can take today off.    He made an appointment to have the guys come and wash and wax both cars on Monday, and as a bonus we can entertain the neighborhood.   lol

 I think the problem with the borders was in Photobucket and not Aimoo for a change.  While Shauna was here, I read your posts and then read posts in the BAMA groups and on Facebook.  I didn't even try to post myself.  I have too much trouble concentrating while she is here normally, and yesterday I was way sub-normal.  Anyway, what I "got" from the BAMA groups was that Photobucket was messed up.    At least everything seems back to normal today!

That's IT!  Captain America!   I am SOOO out of it, knowing who the important "characters" are.   Robert sent me two pictures of Lucy in two different costumes, and I hadn't a clue who either was supposed to be.  One was Nick P Wilde from Zootopia and the other was Sky from Paw Patrol.   I'd never heard of either one.   I'd better try to get with the program, huh?  lol

We're still staying in the higher 60s for the coming week.  Really beautiful weather, though I really am wishing for a hard frost.  My nose is running or sneezing a lot, and overnight it drains and I wake up hacking.  Whatever is causing this needs to be gone!   They did mow and pick up all the leaves that had been on the ground for weeks yesterday ~ maybe molding?   I dunno, but I hope this helps.  They are going to trim the bushes on Tuesday and then they should be done for Winter prep.

The price on the Simmon's Cuddler Recliner sounds great, and the chair sounds so comfy!  I do agree though ~ you shouldn't buy until you try.  We've even had chairs that we sat in and ordered, but when it was delivered it was from the factory and not the one we sat in, and wasn't as comfy.

It sounds like you are having terrible sleep problems too.  I don't know how we are going to get on top of this, but we really have to !     I took a Benedryl last night and I probably got 4 hours.  Not enough of course, but I seem to be able to function ok on four hours.   Less, and I don't do so well.

Thanks for the darling tag!!

I don't belong to many groups, but I get burried in emails.   I think if we survive this election I will do some unsubscribing and cut my time trying to weed through all the emails in half.  I still get way too many forwards, but some are really good so I don't want to say anything to friends who share them.   I'm also getting a lot from card-makers, and I do learn from them and enjoy them.  Still, I'm spending way too much time on line.

I'm sure you should lose some of your groups and emails too, but only if you aren't getting as much  pleasure from them.  Like me, you don't get out much and our escape IS online.   We both need to weed through and be more selective to free up our time, but we should still keep the ones that give us pleasure.

I hope Chris does come today and you don't have to just keep waiting.  

Let's make it a GOOD Day!

Good Morning

Did you Fall Back?   Can't tell you how much I love that the sun will come up to wake us earlier in the morning (those of us who can sleep), and that it will be pitch black at 5:30 in the afternoon.  What a wonderful idea this is.   Not.

Home stretch for the election.  I know we will all be so sorry to see this end.   Not.

We still have leaves on the trees in some areas, but I'm really glad they got ours all raked up.  Actually, they mowed them up and then put them onto a humongous flat bed trucks with 6 foot high metal screen sides.  It was something to see!   Really nice to have the whole neighborhood mostly leaf free.  I didn't wake up with a snoot full and hacking my head off this morning, so maybe that was my allergy cause.  I hope so, cuz it was really becoming a serious pain in the tush to have my head so full of snot.

Did Chris clean for you?   None of our neighbors have Shauna clean as often as we do ~ every other week.  They seem to do it every three weeks or once a month or "whenever".  I'm sure they do a better job of cleaning in between than we do, or maybe we really don't need it done this often, but since we are limited in our activities and not spending as much vacationing or things like that, it's worth it to both of us to have her come every other week.   It never gets really dirty.  If I dust or damp mop the wood floor in between her visits and clean that darned black glass kitchen table every 15 minutes, and we keep the black kitchen granite polished, it never needs more than picking up and throwing out the mail or things we have gotten out to play with.

Hope you are having a good day!

Hello and yes, I fell back and kept on falling, lol. I was in here last night but my computer did not want to stick it out. I had used old electricians tape to keep the adapter plug in place. But is stretches and the plug came out and shut my computer down in the middle of my post. Because it was late and I needed to be up at a reasonable hour this morning, I decided to let it stay off. I went to bed. A lot of good it did me because I use my cell as my alarm and I set it in my dresser drawer as I set up my Cpap. Then just as I was putting the feet up, I closed the drawer. I over slept by an hour and a half. So I had to get a shower, make 4 cards on the computer, find my gifts for Josh, and pull all my O2 stuff together to go by noon. I got the shower done, the cards made, one of the presents prepared (it was a zip drive that looked like an electric guitar) and I put his artwork from his first album on it. I have been keeping it for him and I thought it was time for him to keep it for himself. I also gave him some moola. It was such a beautiful day today. Temps were around 59 but in the sun it was much warmer. 

Chris did clean. She always does the vacuuming last. Mom always tells her to go home that she will wind up the cord. So she does. This time I headed to the bathroom right away only to find that the kitchen trash and recycling cans were on the stove, the table way over in a corner, the chairs piled up where the trash goes and the bathroom hamper and trash can in the back room and she never dusts. I think that is not one of the original jobs but I think we need to add it as she gets done in less than 2 hours and I think for the money she could do more. For one thing, from now on she is putting everything away before she goes. That includes putting the dress on the vacuum.

Today I found myself crying about the election. I so wish we could have had different people running on both sides. I really do not like Hilary, but I hate Trump more. I am so fearful of what he will do as president. He likes war and he has no filters. Where will that put us. We talked a little politics at my sisters and I was in the living room with all men. Dave, who I know usually votes republican and Brent, who usually votes democratic are voting for Trump. I was not surprised about Dave but I was about Brent. Which made me all the more worried about the results. I do not think there is a happy ending for this election at all. Then I heard Nostradamus predicted a Trump win and the end of Democracy in the USA. Now I know that his predictions can be made to match just about any event in history, but still, I am finding it all so overwhelming. The phone rings all the time, my cell rings all the time, TV is full of ads and I cannot take it any more. I do not care who wins anymore, I just want it over.

So with that, I am saying good night.

XOXOXO

Good Morning 

I got a half way decent nights sleep last night, but I feel like I could still go back to sleep.  Never satisfied ~ ha.  I was beginning to wonder how many nights one could go without sleep without becoming completely psychotic.  Or maybe I already have. smiley78   

Yesterday I worked on cards.  I tried the two sided tape again.  It's really nice in many ways, very strong tape that you wouldn't have to worry about detatching and I was able to cut through it ok, but because of all the little intricate pieces that because of the tape you can't just pop out, and because the very sticky glue sticks to your fingers (!), it just take too long to get "Santa" ready to stick to the red backing.  I think I will be able to use the tape of other things, but not Santa.

Next I glued Santa to the red backing using a fine tipped glue pin.  Seemed like a good idea, though I'd be likely to run out of that glue fairly fast.  Well, that proved to be a bad idea too.  While I could glue every curve and curl, when I very carefully glued Santa to the red background, I managed to smear glue on the red backing without realizing it. Twice.  It looked like Jack of Vince had done it. smiley79  Maybe a little bit better, but far from acceptable.

So I took that wonderful craft glue remover I told you about and separated Santa from the red background, let the paper dry, flipped the red background over and tried again, this time with a simple two way glue.  I'm a bit concerned that the glue won't hold for years and years ~ and of course anyone who got the card would want to keep it forever, right?   LOL   It does seem to be holding well, and no smeary mess.

Now I have six, count'em six, sparkly Santas on red backgrounds, ready to add to cards.   I think I should have them all done ~~~ by NEXT Christmas.  LOL

I ordered a Misti to use to stamp the sentiments on the front and inside of the card, and if things go as I hope, I will be able to do them in an assembly line.   That's my hope.  Now let's wait and see what reality is.

Mike has the guys coming over this morning to wash and wax both cars ~ and entertain the neighborhood.  ;-)    I will go back to work in the card shop, and I have a load of laundry to fold.

And so it goes.

Ah, the best laid plans.  You stuffed your "alarm clock" in a drawer and overslept.  Sounds like something I would do.  I'm glad you got the cards made and the gifts ready.  How cute ~ a flash drive shaped like a guitar!

I think you should keep on saving his artwork and just not tell him, in case he doesn't keep it up himself.

I don't think you should have to clean up after your cleaning lady leaves!   I can't even imagine her leaving things in a mess like that, and not even dusting!   What DOES she do besides vacuuming?    We've had four cleaning ladies, some better than others, but none of them would have done such a terrible job for us.  

If it's any comfort, I am fighting the tears about the election, too.  You know Trump was far from my first choice for all the very obvious reasons, but Hillary really scares me to death. I believe she is corrupt and evil.   Even so, they just announced the latest Fox poll, and she is leading nationally by 4 points, and I fear she will win.  Whatever happens, one of us is going to be very unhappy, and I hope whoever the unhappy person is, they are wrong about what they fear.  I try to remind myself that whoever wins, God is still in charge.  Then I think about all the damage that has been done in the last eight years, and I wonder if He cares about our country at all anymore.  We've turned from Him to such a degree.     Ah well.  What will be, will be.   I think you will be the one smiling on Wednesday, if that's any comfort.

Today was probably the last day that we will have our doors open for this year. The temps are supposed to start dropping to normal temps for this time of year. I went for my INR today and it was a bit high 3.2. We are keeping the dose the same but I am supposed to eat Vit K veggies once a week and recheck in 3 weeks. Damn! I just want them to leave me alone, why can't my numbers stay good?

I am glad you finally got some sleep. I actually did not fall asleep every few minutes today. Working on cards is a good way to stay awake. Does every little curl and schniggle of Santa's beard have to be glued down? Would it matter that much is some was free? You will work it all out and find the best way to do it.

We picked names for Christmas on Sunday. I got Suz. I seem to get her a lot but that makes it easy as I know what she likes. I am going to make a google document that everyone can access that they need to make suggestions of what they would like, And am going to add the kids so that parents or they can make suggestions what they would want. Josh's CeeCee (Cayla) got into the drawing. So I guess since she is technically Josh's other half we need to  buy for the girl's now too. This is Jason's last year on the Children's list since once you graduate high school you go up into the adult list. That would have left just Leigh's boys, Ben and Jake in the kids. But now we add Morgan and Maxie. Maxie's real name in Madelaine. I did notice some things between Josh and Cayla that I did not like. She acts like his opinion or wants regarding the house do not count. She also makes fun of his mispronunciation and misuse of words. Seems to be ok for us to do, but it bothered me having her do it. She also said to him, "listen here, I am the only adult in the house so what I say goes". I laughed but then mom said, "nope, he is 20 now" and she said "not till Tues". It was a huge laugh, but after it bothered me. They were arguing too. over silly things. I do not think they have their roles in the relationship and living together worked out. I am a worrier.

I do not think I will be celebrating anything or anyone after this election. There are too many scary things going on in this country and in the world and I do not think either of the candidates have what we need. Where have all the good people gone. Why is everyone out of their minds? I would have been willing to vote for other republican candidates...and none of the democratic candidates. I just have more fear of Trump and his bullshit than Hillary and hers. That was my bottom line. I honestly wish we could start all over again and have both of them banned from being candidates too. Also ban Bernie. Then I could vote with hope. I do not think I have any hope any more. So do not feel that if it goes to Hillary that I won, just as if it goes to Trump I will not feel as if you won. We both voted against a candidate that we both find abhorrent. That is where we differ. I will still be your friend no matter who wins. I wish tomorrow was over with.
Good night my dear sweet friend.
I love you.
Hugs,

Good Morning

Well, I'm off to a great start.  I had my post almost finished but not saved and then hit something and lost it.  I hope this isn't an indication of how the day is going to go.

I'll try again.  Yesterday they trimmed all the bushes in the neighborhood EXCEPT those directly in front of the houses, in our case, the Lilacs.  They used to trim those too and I wish they still did because it's hard for Mike and me to walk on that uneven ground and the rock.  Oh, well.  Everything else looks nice.

We did get both cars washed, dried, vacuumed and hand waxed ~ and entertained the neighborhood as well!  One neighbor stopped in front of the house and asked for their card.  ;-)  They really do look nice now.

I spent more time snoozing and goofing off again, but I did get some work on the cards done and a load of laundry folded.   I have all of the November cards done and some mailed except for Katie's birthday card the end of the month.  I've also been thinking about making a Thanksgiving card for Dena and Steve across the street.  He took over Bill's duties at the HOA and has been our liason with them, and he trimmed some broken branches on our Canadian Maple in the back.

I'd better stop thinking of more November cards to make and get busy on Christmas cards!   The card I am making is much more time consuming than I had anticipated.  

I had a lot of trouble falling asleep again last night, but I had fallen asleep a couple of times watching TV earlier.  Finally I did get to sleep for a few hours in bed.  I am so screwed up.

That darned INR!   Mine was 3.5 and 3.4 the last two times so we cut back to half a pill on one more day each week.  This last time I FINALLY got a good test with my new machine ~ which does NOT like me! ~ and I was at 2.6.   I still have to take it every other week because of the money that needs to change hands, not because that's what my Dr ordered, but at least I don't have to go to the Lab and have 2 or 3 phlebotomists try to get blood from this turnip.   

So now you have a niece-in-almost-law.  I rather hope they don't make it permanent, but clearly from here I don't know what the heck I'm talking about.   I just hope he ends up with someone who loves him as he deserves to be loved, and whom he can freely give his heart to.

Your idea of a Data Base of what folks want for Christmas is a good one.  It's so darned hard other wise.    

I have ordered and received books for all "my" kids Christmas and for Vince's December birthday.  I'm assuming as little as they are, they aren't sick of books, though I suspect they won't be their most exciting gifts to open.   Later, when bed time comes around a few days after Christmas, though . . .;-)

We usually have something sent to the grownup families we still give to, and we haven't come up with any great ideas yet.  Come on Inspiration ~ strike!

We do feel much the same about the election.  Because I am a Constitutional Conservative (who votes as a Republican), I would have been thrilled to my toenails to be able to vote for Ted Cruz, but I could have been genuinely happy to vote for most of the other Republicans ~ definitely not ALL, but most.  Instead . . . 

I haven't turned the TV on yet because I don't want to hear the pundits declaring victory at 8:30 in the morning!   (snarl)

Half the country will wake up miserable tomorrow, and I suspect much of the remaining half will be worried even though their candidate won. 

Thank you for the beautiful tag!   I hope I can feel like celebrating tomorrow.  If I do, I will share some things that I have been feeling in the hope they might make you feel better.  Otherwise, I'll just shut up.  ;-)

All we can do is pray, and we are.

Love and hugs,

Dorothy

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14

I too have not checked anywhere to see where this election is going. I have just been praying that whoever wins that God gives them guidance in the years ahead to lead this country in the right direction and to help reunite the citizens so that we all can work together for the good of our country and world. That is all I ask and it is a lot to ask God for, but if enough of us pray, then maybe he will intercede.  Maybe we should start a prayer chain...a really big one.
I really have not done anything else today. Did my email already and when done here I am going to work on the Christmas List for all.
We have not gotten snow but the tag challenge called for it. The celebration tag was for Guy Fawkes Day. But I could never use that tag I just went with the fireworks and Celebrating. We were not allowed to use in scrap kits, outside plugins, etc. The only thing we were allowed to use was masks, so I found masks of fireworks and created my own.
Let's hope that we can live with ourselves tomorrow.
Hugs,

Shock and awe?    I am stunned, surprised, amazed and  . . . . . hopeful, for the first time in 8 years.

I imagine you are experiencing the same emotions, but with sadness and concern instead of hope.    I really hope and I will pray that that fear and concern can turn to hope, and with valid reason.    

I can't write anything profound or meaningful right now.  I am in a sort of daze.   We watched Fox all evening.  I was surprised that Mike didn't switch to a movie or show, but stayed right with it.  That's not like him, but he is invested.  ;-)   I have been so concerned (oh Me of litle faith), and he has kept telling me not to worry because he and Franklin (Graham) were praying.  lol   

As it began to appear that the impossible might actually happen, we couldn't turn away.   We turned the news on when we went to bed, but by midnight it appeared that they wouldn't be able to call several states even though the New York Times had called the race for Trump, it wasn't official.   But . . . the New York Times?   They must have been sobbing in their soup!  

We switched over to a Midsommer Murder and about half way through I turned over to go to sleep and Mike turned the TV off.  Then I got one of those coughing fits.   I haven't had one in days, but i couldn't stop.   I was going to go to the Morning Room but Mike insisted I stay, so I propped up in bed and he turned the TV back on and we caught the news that Trump had officially been declared the winner.    Truly, shock and awe.   

Then we went back to watching the rest of the Midsomer Murder episode and around 2:30 I took a Bendryl and slept until 6:30

I do want to share some of my path from "Are you kidding?!" to Hope, for what it may be worth, but not today.   I'm really sort of numb.  

I want us to both feel hopeful, and I pray that will happen, and I think I will "pray without ceasing".

Love you my friend, and I love my beautiful new tag.  Thank you.

Dorothy

WELL, THANKS FOR TELLING ME EVERYTHING I TRIED TO 

AVOID HEARING.  I STAYED AWAY FROM THE NEWS ALL

YESTERDAY AND LAST NIGHT.  ALSO OUR PAPER COULD NOT

CALL THE RACE WHEN IT WENT TO BED.  I HAD TO GO TO

THE EYE DOCTOR.  MY EYE IS GOOD BUT THE PRESSURE IS

STILL TO HIGH.  STARTING DROPS AND BACK IN 3 WEEKS.

ANYWAY, MY SISTER TOLD ME THE NEWS WHEN SHE PICKED 

ME UP AND WE WERE DEVASTATED TOGETHER.

I SO WISH IT HAD BEEN ANYONE ELSE, SO IF YOU CAN 

SAY ANYTHING TO GIVE ME HOPE, GO FOR IT.

I HAVE NOTHING MORE TO SAY AT THE MOMENT.

MY EYES WERE DILATED AND EVERYTHING IS STILL

FUZZY.  I WILL TALK TO YOU TOMORROW.

LOVE AND HUGS,

ME
