Well, I finally got the page and skin done.

As you can see, I once again cannot change the forum icons

nor could I change the hover color. But all else works so I

guess that is a blessing. Sorta!

Glad that things are rolling along well in your life now. I knew the

carpet picking was going to be an issue. I remember when you were

choosing your stone for the house and how it looked so different

depending on the time of day and angle and so much more. If they 

both look good, then just go with one. Flip a coin. It will be alright

and why stress over it?  I say go with Gold Rush. It was your first

choice so stop 2nd guessing it.

I screwed up today.  I was supposed to be at the anti coagulation 

clinic to have my blood checked.  Oops!  This is why I do not like

appts.  They were very nice about it.  Told them I was getting over

a respiratory infection.  Made a new appt for next Tues.  I do not

think they liked waiting that long, but oh well!!  They did not have

an appt tomorrow in a time frame I could get to.

I am still having issues with incontinence and it is driving me crazy.

I wake up in the morning having to go immediately.  I cannot even 

stand up before it starts running. It is humiliating.  I have to find

out what is going on.  Wondering if I have a UTI also. But I have an

idea of what I can try for wearing an incontinence product. :(

I cannot believe that I have not told you the big news.

Over the weekend we did not see Chris and Scott and not on Mon

either.  The landlord stopped in on Tues. and mom told him how we

had not seen them all weekend.  We all thought it odd as they 

always tell us about when they are going away for the weekend.

Later on Tuesday we got a call from Bud (landlord) he had called

Chris.  She was in the Madison Hosp for burns to her hands, arms,

stomach and more.  Scott was with her.  OMG. So then we think

they must have gone camping with her sister and it happened then.

So later Chris called but it was hard getting info from her. Though

they were talking about a skin graft from her stomach.  Dear Lord.

So today, mom heard noise in the entry and opened the door and

Chris sister was there.  Turns out it happened Sat night right in the

backyard at the firepit they had built.  She apparently tripped over

something (drunk) and fell into the pit.  She went into the house and

did not call her sister until sometime on Sun morning to take her to

the hospital.  When she got there they immediately sent her off to

Madison Hospital Burn Unit.  She has 2nd and 3rd degree burns.

They will be doing a skin graft, but where it is going we do not know.

She will not be getting out until at least next Thur if then.  I feel so

bad for her and I pray that this is a wake up call for them both about

drinking.  Her sister said they are going to bull doze the fire pit.  

That's a joke, all you have to do is kick it over.  They just used 

loose bricks Bud had brought over and they stacked them in a circle

about 4 rows deep.  That was it.  Suz went back there and said it is

all knocked apart which would have happened when Chris fell into it.

I sure hope they cannot go after the landlord for this since he

brought the bricks and knew they had stacked them and were using

them.  Time will tell, so please say a prayer for Chris's recovery.

Hugs,

Hello and TGIF!

I'm posting tonight because Shauna comes tomorrow morning, and you know what trouble I have concentrating when she is here.

I missed it because I was in the bedroom putting color in my hair, but this morning (yesterday now) Miss Chrystie got up on her favorite perch on the back of the couch in the Great Room!  She loves sunning herself there, but I didn't think she could get up there on her own now.  Unfortunately she hadn't been there long when Shogun came and chased her off.  That's unfortunate, but it's so wonderful that she can get up to her favorite morning spot!  She still isn't anywhere near her old self, but so much better.  Was it only a week ago that we were sure she was dying?

Mike's news at the dentist was terrible.  He hadn't been in a while, but we were completely unprepared to learn that several of his crowns had leaked and the teeth beneath the crowns had decayed.  It's going to require major reconstruction.  I feel so terrible for him.  I should have begged for prayers for his Dental appt as well as his Medical.

While he was gone I put the hot dish I had made on to heat in the crock pot, and when I heard his news I suggested sharing a glass of wine in the library.  That should have helped, but Shogun somehow managed to tip the little music box table next to Mike's chair and fling the whole glass of very dark red Cabernet three feet across the library floor!  It looked like a murder scene!   We got it up so you can only see a Shadow.  I would feel much worse if we weren't going to recarpet, but when I looked across the library floor to the sample we think we have selected for the library and realized it's almost white, with raised and lowered fabric ~~~ Cringe!   Supposedly the new carpet is very stain resistant, but dark red wine on that multi level almost white carpet?   Shudder. 

All in all, it was not a good afternoon!

Still haven't made a decision on the carpet.  This is a nightmare!

Maybe today (which is tomorrow to me as I post this) will be better.  I hope!  


But look at you!  You've been busy and productive and the new page is lovely!   I wondered if you would be able to add the icons.  Some folks on Server 2 have been able to, and I can add them on Server 4 but not on '1'.  Icon's or no, it looks wonderful!

I can't imagine how upsetting having the 'leakage' problem must be ~~~ and I don't want to find out, even to be properly empathetic!  Have you talked to Denise about it?   I hope you can find something to wear that would help.  That has to be miserable!

It's understandable that you would miss an appointment with all you have been going through.  They have no reason not to be nice about it!

I have my appointment with the Periodontist on Tuesday, too.  I'm about three months late and I suppose they will be poopy about it.  Well gosh, guys, I had surgery and half a dozen medical appts and a cat with a stroke and I don't know what all.  Deal with it.  When I first had the Periodontal work done, the Periodontist, who was a darling pixie of a man, told me that we should get to the point where I would only see him once a year and my dentist once a year ~ total appts every six months.  I could handle that.  It's been twice a year for both, every three months and I'm loosing patience with it.   His office was always so positive and upbeat, but then he retired and sold his practice to this young woman, and everything is always so negative.  My dentist is wonderful and she is also so upbeat and positive. Her hygenist in April said she didn't see why I needed to come so often.  I don't either.  It may be time for me to look for another Periodontist ~ though I don't know how much of a pain starting over would be.  Sigh.

OhMyGosh, how awful about Chris!  She must have been in terrible pain, but decided she didn't need to go to the hospital until the next day.  She could have gotten an infection or ~ well I don't know what.  I'm glad she's being taken care of, but what a horrid thing.  I really hope it does act as a wake up call about the drinking and drugging ~~ but I wouldn't put money on it.    I hope she doesn't try to lay financial blame on Bud.  Where was Scott when all this was going on?   What a mess!  I will add my prayers for her.

Thanks for the cute tag!

Helloooooo

I may have spoken too soon about our Chrystie.  Yesterday I'm not sure she left her bed in the Great Room the entire time Shauna was here, and we only saw her go for water once.  Otherwise, she slept all day.  She started sneezing again, though not as badly, and then she got congested and made 'trouble breathing' noises. In the evening I put her on my lap while I watched TV.  I cleaned her nose and eyes and stroked her and got a little purr.  Then before I went to bed I carried her over to her food and water dish, but she just walked back to her bed without eating or drinking.  In some ways she walked better, her head isn't tilting so badly, but she's weak and stumbled.  I suspect she's dehydrated.   Very upsetting.   This morning when I got up she had taken herself over to sit on the Heat Register, so maybe that's a good sign.

Shauna did her usual good job and the house looks good.   We finished going through the recycle materials and have reduced them all to one sack, which we'll take to the Shred-a-thon this morning.   Only one sack, but VERY heavy.  Maybe we'll put it into two sacks.  You are allowed three boxes or sacks.

Mike said after we dropped them off he'd like to go back to the OMG Donut Shop and reload.  I probably should argue, but I'm not gonna.   lol  

We started our Halloween Movies last night with Hocus Pocus.    First we watched part one of an old Ruth Rendell movie with Colin Firth.  I always hated British movies because the 'meter' was always off for me.  When I started watching all the ones Mike's sister introduced us to, I couldn't imagine why I hadn't liked them.  This show made me remember.  I don't think I changed ~ the way they make the British movies did.  Then we watched Blue Bloods and came into the bedroom to watch Hocus Pocus.  Fun.

I forgot to tell you how we started our morning yesterday!  I was awake from 3:30, but trying to sleep and Mike was sleeping.  Then around 5 AM we heard the sirens ~ police, ambulance, fire ~ I don't know, but they kept going and going.  Probably a block or two over, but really loud.  Then at 5:30 the phone rang!  It was our next door neighbor Jake, telling me that our sprinkler system had been running all night!  He saw it (the one in the front by the boulevard) going at 9PM the night before when he came home, and in the morning it was still going.   I don't know where HE was going at 5AM, but he was fully dressed when I went out front and talked to him.   I wasn't.  I looked like a Halloween Scary Creature.  Ha.  It was pitch black out, but Jake offered to get a flashlight and try to turn it off from the sprinkler box, but Mike said he would turn the water off from the basement, and he did.  We called Bill, the HOA guy and hopefully he will help us.  I hope it can just be reset, but it's sounding, to me at least, like we need a professional to fix it.  It's always something!

I really hate it for Mike that he has what sounds like

 serious dental issues.  You know how I hated going

 to the Dentist and Mike hates it at least as much. I

 hate the problems you are having, too.   Apparently

 dental problems are one of the fun things that goes

 with Parkinson's ~~ as if the mobility, balance and

 stamina issues weren't enough.

Well, enough blather for this morning.  I hope you

 are feeling better!

Sorry I did not come in last night, I was just too tired and in no mood for chatting.  I am just so damned tired it is ridiculous.  When am I going to feel human again?
Beautiful photographs of your sky.  We had a beautiful sky this evening for sunset but without going outside, there was no where I could get a good shot of it.

What in hell made your neighbor think it was ok to call you at 5:30am?  Jeepers...it really could have waited.  I do love how your neighbors all look out for you but dear Lord, a body needs it's sleep. (even if you weren't)

I also hate hearing that Mike needs some serious dental work.  I do not know anyone who enjoys going to the dentist. Though I did not mind a lot with my old dentist. But the one I go to now is about the all mighty dollar and not geared towards the needs of the patient.  I hate going.  There is no real concern to the patients comfort either.  I will keep Mike in my prayers for minimal pain and effort on his part, lol.  

Aww, Po' baby Chrystie.  That darn ShoGun, for the first time I am seriously ticked with him, lol.  I guess we have to face the fact that our darling girl (I have taken partial ownership vicariously) does not have long for this earth.  Just keep loving her as you have always done and she will go knowing she was well loved!!

I had to edit your post and double space it in order to read it.  Hope that is ok with you.  Happens now and then that I have to do that.

OMG, the wine on the carpet story....I could just see it happening, all in slow motion.  It cracked me up and I know it is not funny, but it is such a standard comedy routine.  I just could so clearly see it playing out and I could die laughing.  Then the first thing I though was, well no harm since they are replacing the carpet anyway.
No clue how you can prevent that from ever happening again.  Snicker, snicker.....

Going to say goodnight now and will see you tomorrow.
Hugs,

Hello.  Happy Sunday.

Semi productive day yesterday.   The Shred-a-thon was a fund raiser supported by the Arvada Police and it was so well organized.  It was held at the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts which is just a few blocks away from us.  They had people lining the road to point us in the right direction, and when we got close other folks with big buckets there to accept our donation.  There was no charge, but "donations are appreciated".  lol.  Then as we got close, guys to take our bag of shred-ables so we didn't even have to get out of the car.  We did stick with one very heavy bag.  When someone brought theirs in a box, another group was there to break down the box for recycling when the materials it held had been shredded.  It didn't take 15 minutes, and we felt righteous.  I've been nagging Mike to do that for two years, and now it's done!   We do have our own shredder in the basement, but if you don't keep on top of it, the stacks can grow.

Then we mailed some letters and went on to the OMG Donutshop.  I admit it.  We're addicted.    Back home for donuts and coffee, and we largely goofed off for the rest of the day.

You've heard of Bear Claws?  This is OMG's Bare FOOT.   OMG!

Chrystie was much better, eating and drinking well, snoozing and walking better again, too.  In the evening she took turns cuddling with each of us.  

Still staring at the carpet samples.  We are definitely leaning toward the "Georgian Brick", much to both of our surprise. In some light, it's really nice.  In other light, it's Pink, to me anyway.  Mike doesn't think so.   Hope we can make a final decision today so I can call and try to set up a visit with the installer soon.


I hope that you start feeling better soon.  It's so miserable, and the longer it continues the more discouraged a person gets.   Soon!

I think Jake felt bad about calling so early, but when he realized the sprinkler system had to have been going all night, he didn't think he should wait.   I can just imagine our water bill next time!   We haven't heard from Bill (the HOA guy) yet, but I don't think skipping a day or two of watering will be a problem now.

Thanks for the prayers for Mike.  I hadn't realized teeth problems was yet another possible "gift" from Parkinson's.  That's ALL he needs. 

Chrystie would love having another person to love her ~ and for her to sit on.  I would say "and sneeze on" but she hasn't been doing too much of that lately.  The only GOOD side of her current problems.  

Thanks for changing the text in my post.  Feel free to do that whenever you need to.   It looked fine to me, obviously.  I HATE that what I see is often not what You Get!  No way to fix it if you can't see it.  Grrrrr.

The Icon and Hover color problem is not fixed yet.  If I hear or see anything, I'll let you know, and you can do the same for me.  Great time to get all new techs, and for their first activity to be go on a National Holiday.

I LOVE my new tag!  Thank you!

Feel Better!

OMG, Bare Foot!!!  No wonder it has OMG for it's title.  But why does the Bare Foot only have 4 toes?  You are being cheated out of a toe!  Not that you need it, lol. Now I want an Apple Cruller.  Lord I love them.  

Talking about neighbors contacting you at all hours...last night about 1:30am there was a knock at our door.  I looked at mom and she was asleep and started to get up and heard the knock again.  I said through the closed door who is it and I heard the name Debbie (upper back neighbor) so I opened the door but did not know the girl at the door.  She said...Oh I am sorry, I am looking for my friend Debbie, she gave me this address.  I said, yes, but she is apt. 4, around the house to the right and at the top of the stairs.  When you invite someone over at that hour you definitely should tell them how to find your apt.  Idiot!!  Happily mom slept right through it.  I was actually a bit afraid to open the door knowing that they are dealing with drugs upstairs. It could be someone dangerous at our door.

Oops!!  I almost went back to look at the Georgian Brick and if I had I would have lost my post and not been happy at all, lol.  For once I "saved" myself!! 

I am just going to pray that Chrystie stays comfortable and is able to enjoy her life as much as she can and that ShoGun lays off her so she can lay in her fav spot if she is ever able to get up there again.

We have had a beautiful day today. Temps in the mid 70's and sunny.  Would have been a great day to go for a drive.  But I am not asking anyone to do that for me this year.  I do not think I could enjoy it as much as I would like to.  Plus I would love to go northward instead of south. So just going to enjoy other peoples photo's!!
Have a great day tomorrow.
Hugs,

Good Morning

The nice weather holds, but the leaves are changing.  I love it ~ the most beautiful time of the year, but it also means it won't be long before those branches now filled with gorgeous colorful leaves will be bare.  Sigh. 

We didn't do a lot yesterday, but we have accomplished quite a bit in the last couple of weeks ~ for us anyway.  Mike had to change some fire alarm batteries and it's nervous making with his balance issues so I went downstairs with him.  I'm absolutely horrified by how little I can do physically.  I'm so completely worthless it made me cry.  I know I have too much trouble with simple things but like Chrystie, in my mind I can still do most of what I've always done.  When it smacks me in the face that I really can't, it makes me feel so worthless.  So much to do, no way to do it.

I remember when I first got TM reading an article in their news bulletin written by a 10 year old boy who was paralyzed by TM.  TM strikes children more than adults because it's caused by a virus that attacks your spine, and kids get more viruses than "seniors".   The kids and some adults are often left in wheel chairs for life.   He described dreaming of playing baseball, and waking up in the morning and throwing back the covers to get up, and then realizing ~ 'Oh, wait.  I can't."   I sometimes have the same kind of feeling.  I lay in bed and plan things I need and want to do, then when I start to do them, I can't.  So very frustrating, but I was 62 or 63  when I got it, and I'm not locked in a wheel chair.  I really do count my blessings most of the time.

Ok, Pity Party over!  Enough of that!  I do know how lucky I am and I will focus on that.

That 'Bare Foot' was large ~ Mike and I shared it. I'm thinking maybe it's Big Foot's Bare Foot, and that's why only four toes.  ;-)    While we were still in the parking lot, we each had a toe, leaving the foot looking like it was giving us the Peace Symbol.  lol   The toes were like a regular glazed doughnut, but the body was stuffed with apples and cream.  Yummy.

OhMyGosh, I would be afraid to answer the door in the wee hours, and particularly knowing the druggies often frequented the upstairs apartment!  It's good she didn't wake your mom, but I'll bet you had trouble sleeping afterwards!  
Have you heard anything from or about Chris and Scott?   

I don't think I posted a picture of the Georgian Brick.  It's surprising how much we liked the teeny-tiny sample of Gold Rush and when we got the larger sample we didn't like it nearly as much.  I don't know that we will ever be sure we chose right, but I think we have chosen and we will have to live with our choices.  Anything would be better than what we have now.

Chrystie is doing better.  She wasn't all that active before she had this "attack" or whatever it was, and she's a bit slower and sleeps a bit more now, but for now she's here and loving to be held and talked to whenever we are in the Great Room with her.   She hasn't come into the morning room for a while  She seems happy and we are grateful for whatever time we heave with her.

We haven't gone on a leaf watch drive either, and I doubt that we will.  We didn't last year.  Mike doesn't enjoy driving anymore and I miss going on rides with him, but I'm grateful for what we have.  He has no problems driving, I think it just stresses him and so it isn't fun for him anymore.  He just got me used to taking long drives often before, when he really loved driving.

I love my new tag and border.  Thank you so much!

Have a Mahvelous Monday!

Hello my sister.
I do not have a lot to say.  Just so tired and worn out.
I stayed in bed (chair) till nearly 10:30 am.  Mom woke
me because Josh, was here with Ashley and baby Natalie.
I was so irritated with her that I did not get up.  I was being
totally irrational. Same last night before I went to bed. I had been reading all evening and started feeling really punky. My mom woke up and was in a really silly mood and kept saying really silly stupid stuff to me and I just got angrier and angrier and I asked her several times to know it off.  I think I was running a temp.  I finally told her to shut up, which she did, for about 5 min.  Then she started again.  Normally I laugh at her when she acts that way but not this time.  How to hell can you read when someone keeps talking to you?  I finally packed up and went to my room wanting to strangle her....and then she woke me this morning.  She is lucky she is alive.  

I need to look up OMG Donuts and see if they ship.  After you telling me what was inside the bare foot I have to have one.  I did thank you for the candy you sent me, didn't I?  It was delish and mom refused to share evenly because of how many guest at eaten.  So I got the final 3.  It was really probably because of the last 4 only 1 was milk chocolate and mom is not a fan of dark. In the last few years, dark has really grown on me to where sometimes I prefer it.  Have you TV for years and while mom was gone I got a jar.  OMG, I was addicted. There was something about the texture I just loved. I ate it by the spoonful.  So then I did try a sugar-free version but the consistency was runny and that turned me off, lol.  But I could so see making cupcakes and using it as a filler.  YUM!!

You know I totally commiserate and understand that Pity Party and am jumping on board with you.  I am getting better at "giving up" things I want to do. But my life is so boring doing the same thing day after day.  I wish I could volunteer my time.  I am going to start crocheting hats and scarves to donate to the schools to students that need them.  I feel that would be a good use for my time. 
I get Mike...driving can be so stressful, it is no wonder he does not enjoy longer drives any more.  Be happy he can still drive for all your other needs, like beauty shop, grocery, doc and dental appts, etc.  As you said, we need to count our blessings.
I'm sorry, I am not in a good mood and just do not feel like chatting anymore.  I will take my irritating self away.
Chat with you tomorrow.
Hugs,

OOOOOooooooh.  I have to go to the Perodontist today.  fun, fun fun.  Too much going on this week.  I have several call-backs we are waiting on to set up appointments besides today's appt and a much needed haircut on Thursday.  This may be the worst haircut I've ever had.  I hope she can restore me to a bit of normalcy.

 

Sorry you didn't get enuf sleep.  Sounds like your mom was in a really funky mood ~ lol.  Ok, I do get it.  Not funny when you are over tired or stressed. ;-)

OMG Donuts doesn't have a web site.  It's a tiny storefront in a strip mall, but Oh My, what awesome donuts!

I'm so glad you liked your birthday chocolates ~~ and so sorry they came in such a big box that it made you feel like you were getting a ton of 'em instead of just a few!    I used to think I only liked Milk chocolate too, but now I am addicted to the dark ~ and fewer carbs and less sugar, too!

Are you going to watch the Debates tonight?   I haven't decided.  Probably should, but probably won't.  lol   I do understand CNN isn't going to try to have the candidates fight with each other like they did the Republican debate.  Big surprise there ~ CNN helping the Democrats instead of trying to make them look bad.  I'm shocked.  LOL

Thanks for the cute Halloween tag! 

Have a good day!

Do not think for a minute that the box of Chocolates you sent was too small.  It would have been perfect for mama and I. Just my sister had to open her big old trap. She never thinks before she says things. Open mouth, insert foot should be her title. She took me to the Anticoag for my test and while we were waiting she was telling me Jordan's schedule...very loudly...I shushed her and then she was whispering. I said, you do not have to whisper but you were just so loud. She wants everyone to know poor Suzy having to deal with a wayward son in jail. She almost seems proud of it at times.  Good news is that even with having been on an antibiotic and prednisone by number was great. 2.6  Repeat in 4 weeks. I am a little worried that is was down because of the antibiotic and that in 4 weeks time it will be high again. But we will play it by ear.  I had to go out without oxygen because my portable O2 came unplugged and did not charge, but I did ok. I almost felt human for a while today. It helped getting out for a bit. My toe was killing me with a shoe on. I have reinjured it several times when hurrying to reach the bathroom. I have to be more careful.

I hope you get a wonderful haircut. One you can work with.  I hope the periodontist was not too bad and that you did not miss your call backs.

We did not watch the debates. I would have liked to but mom would not have and I am having enough issues dealing with her lately. But that is ok, I can handle it. I may be able to watch them the next time I go to Fauska's. They probably recorded them for Nan. We were planning to have a craft day real soon.

Well, going to shut down now and relax. Chat with you tomorrow. 

Hugs,

Hellooooooo

What a crazy day yesterday was.  I hope Aimoo is more User Friendly today!  I think their brand new Techs who just came on board last week after their National Holiday may have their hands full.  I keep checking the Help forum, but I haven't seen anything that gives me a lot of hope yet.  :-(

In addition to the problems with the Icons and hover color on the new skins, I am the only one who has been able to post in the other group.  Well, to post more or less normally, anyway.  The others have to use the Quick Reply box, which of course limits what you can do.  Some have found they can open a new reply in some bazarre place and copy borders, but not add pictures, and then copy and past that into the Quick Reply.   Such fun.  NOT.

I spent a fun hour at the Periodontist's office yesterday morning.  Not all that bad, but I'm glad it's over for six months.  Marsha never pauses for breath and while she is cleaning and talking, she gets a bit rough.  The actual Periodontist, a young woman with boyfriend problems, stops by takes a peek and moves on.  I miss my original Dr and his hygienist "No Pain Elaine".   I really loved them both. 

I did get lots of those appointments I was talking about made so I wasn't totally unproductive.  The Carpet Installer is coming this afternoon to measure and see what (if anything) can be done with the furniture.   Then they can order the carpet and arrange for a time to install it.  Supposedly about three weeks.  If it's more than four weeks we'll have to wait until after the holidays, because we need at least a week to get ready for Mike's sister and bil's visit.

I talked to the Christmas Lighting guy and straightened out the mistakes on their proposal and we changed things a bit from last year.   We will go back to white lights across the roof and on the large wreath over the entry way and the four small wreaths over the carriage lights, but we will keep the multi colored lights on the tree.  We're not going to put up the swag on the porch rail this year and we'll see how we like that.

The guy who cleans our windows is coming next week to clean just the outside of the windows, though he is charging somewhat more than half of his normal charge for doing both inside and outside. Actually makes sense because the outside is where they need the tall ladders and need to take the screens of and all.

Today I will call the guy Sue recommended to recover the couch and see if I can set up an appointment with him.  I fear if he thinks he can do it it will involve our going to a warehouse and pouring through all sorts of fabric books ~ shudder.  We'll see what he says.  Sue tells me he won't take the couch until he is ready to actually do the work, so that could mean it would be gone when they come to lay the carpet, but more likely, they wouldn't take it until after the holidays.  At least it's worth asking about.   I have no idea what he charges, but Sue and John really felt it was worthwhile to reupholster good quality furniture as opposed to buying new possibly more cheaply made furniture.  

Other than that, not much going on.  I think way too much has already gone on ~ lol

I'm so glad your INR numbers were good!  All that medication could really have knocked you out of the ballpark.  So nice to be able to wait a month!

I hadn't thought about it, but I'm sure a little exercise will make you feel better.  Of course when you do a bit more than "a little", you pay for it.   Ask me how I know.  I am so pathetically worthless ~ but I do feel better when I do a bit more as long as I stop in time.

I LOVE my new tag!  Deliciously spooky.  Thanks so much.

HERE I AM WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. I HAVE BEEN SO NEGATIVE LATELY AND I AM SO SICK OF IT.  I AM ALSO THINKING I MAY HAVE A 2NDARY INFECTION GOING.  I HAVE DEVELOPED A COUGH AND ONCE AGAIN BRINGING UP PHLEGM AND AT TIMES FEEL AS IF I AM RUNNING A TEMP, NOT SURE.  HMMMM  THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT I AM OVER 36 HRS OF NO LEAKAGE.  NOW I NEED TO FEEL WELL ENOUGH TO SCRUB ALL THE FLOORS.  MOM JUST WIPED THEM UP. SHE DID NOT "WASH" THEM AND THE HOUSE SMELLS LIKE URINE. LORD I DO TELL YOU EVERYTHING.  I ORDERED OUR HALLOWEEN CANDY ON AMAZON AND IT WILL BE HERE FRIDAY.  I WANTED TO GO WITH CANDY WE DID NOT LIKE AND SHE TOLD ME TO GET CANDY WE DID LIKE.  JOSH GAVE ME A $25 GC FOR MY BIRTHDAY SO I USED THAT.  HE GAVE MOM ONE FOR JIMMY JOHNS AS HE THOUGHT HE FORGOT HER BIRTHDAY BUT HE HADN'T, HE BROUGHT HER FLOWERS. HE JUST LAUGHED WHEN MOM TRIED TO GIVE IT BACK. SINCE MOM SHARES HER JIMMY JOHNS WITH ME, I DECIDED TO SHARE MY AMAZON WITH HER. I DID THROW PRISMA COLORED PENCILS INTO THE CART JUST SO I CAN TELL JOSH WHAT I GOT WITH THE CARD.  SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD EXCUSE ;)

GLAD TO HEAR YOU ARE GETTING ALL YOUR DUCKS IN A ROW!  I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HELL THAT MEANS BUT IT SEEMED TO FIT.  HOPE THEY DO FALL IN LINE AS YOU WOULD LIKE THEM TO.  SPEAKING OF CHRISTMAS, DID YOU EVER GET YOUR REPLACEMENT TREE AND DOES IT WORK.  IF I AM HAVING A BRAIN FART AND KNOW THE ANSWER ALREADY, FORGIVE ME BUT I CANNOT REMEMBER.  YOU REALLY HAVE EXCEPTIONAL ORGANIZING SKILLS.  WHAT EVER WOULD MIKE DO WITHOUT YOU?  OR YOU HIM FOR THAT MATTER.

SO, NO PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK.  GOING TO SEE IF I CAN SHAME ANY OF MY SISTERS INTO CLEANING THE FLOORS.  I ALREADY SAID SOMETHING TO SUZ ABOUT NEEDING IT DONE AND SHE SAID NOTHING.  BUT SHE IS HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH HER RIGHT KNEE AND HAS TO SEE A VASCULAR SURGEON, SO I CAN UNDERSTAND HER NOT SPEAKING UP.  DIANE JUST GOT DONE HAVING CATARACTS ON BOTH EYES REMOVED SO NOT SURE IF SHE IS UP FOR IT EITHER. I AM GOING TO ASK THEM IF THEY KNOW ANYONE WHO WOULD DO IT FOR PAY AND HOW MUCH.  I HAVE SOME EXTRA MONEY THIS MONTH THAT WAS GOING TO GO TOWARD CHRISTMAS, BUT THE FLOORS ARE MORE IMPORTANT AT THIS TIME. WELL, THAT'S IT FOR NOW.

HUGS,

Posting tonight because I have a much needed haircut tomorrow morning..  Funny thing is that my hair has looked awful for the last 5 weeks, and today it actually looked pretty good.  Figgers.  LOL

The Carpet Installer (and his daughter) came to measure for the carpet this evening.  I'm not sure exactly why, but I don't have a good feeling.  I fear it's going to cost even more than the original estimate to move the furniture and do everything that is needed, and the original estimate was twice what we've ever paid before.  I'm also concerned about some other things, but that's probably just because I'm a professional worry wart, and also because I'm over tired, I imagine.  I had another one of those semi sleepless nights last night.  We'll just have to see.  We can always back out and continue to live with the cruddy carpet we have now.  (oh, I'm really not sure we can.  lol)

Chrystie loves company and she still doesn't realize she has limitations.  While we were talking to the Installer and his daughter, she got up on the foot stool and then into the Deacon chair, all by herself.  When nobody gave her any love, she tried to get down and she fell.  Not to far, but it's still hard to watch.  We're trying to let her do as much as she can, but some things are clearly beyond her.  We help her into our laps, but she was across the room.   I thought it was funny neither of them reached out to give her at least a stroke, but I must remind myself that not everybody likes cats.  How they could not like Chrystie, though, is beyond me.   lol

 Bill was back working on the Sprinkler System controls this afternoon.  I have no idea what is going on, but we were watering around 6PM, which is earlier than in the past, and I like it better because I can actually see it happening.   Everything LOOKED ok, but who knows.   I also got out and watered our Dahlia pots, which were looking a bit dry.  They have certainly been prolific, and I'd like to keep them that way.  I don't plan to try to put something out there for Fall, so I'd love these  to keep blooming.

I'm SO glad the leakage problem has stopped.  I can imagine how horrible that has been!   

What nice gifts from Josh!  I'm impressed.  What are you going to do with the Prisma colored Pencils?   Do you have a project in mind?  Come on ~ fess up.  Did you get some candy you and your mom like?  ;-)  We used to do that, and then of course we ate much more of it than we should.  We used to have about 100 kids and we gave out the Big bars, so we got rid of most of it . . . but not all.  lol   

I don't remember if I told you about the Balsam Hill's tree or not, but yes, we did get our replacement ~~~~ and no, we haven't tested it out!   I know.  Don't blame me!   Mike hasn't wanted to bring it in from the garage and set it up to test it.  I keep pointing out that we have no guarantee it will work and we need to get that done, but he says if it doesn't work they will replace it and we can use our old one with all white lights.  Since he does the heavy lifting, and I know sometimes it's hard for him, I try to keep my big mouth at least somewhat stilled. He thinks it will be fine, and I HOPE he is right, but I'm not good at just hoping for the best.  I stress.   

I hope you can get someone to help you clean the floors!  Good luck with that.

LOVE the new tag with the wonderfully spooky atmosphere.  You do such great work ~ have I mentioned that?   If not, I should have, and I appreciate it.  Thanks so much!

Hello sister lovey!!
Maybe you should consider another carpeting company.  If something feels wrong to you then it probably is and you will not be comfortable with them in your house.  Check out another company and get an estimate from them and compare.  It sounds to me like this guys prices are way to high.
As far as the Christmas tree, I can understand Mikes concern but I think yours is more valid.  Why take the chance of having to deal with a messed up tree a 2nd year in a row.  And you know how damn slow they are. Why not just open it in the garage, check the lighting and then leave it there.  No need to bring it up into the house.  Whatever, when we cannot do it we are slaves to those who can.  SUCKS.  But Mike would be a pretty good guy to be a slave to! 
 lol
Poor little Chrystie.  I wish I could come and give her some lovin.  I know you and Mike are doing that all the time, but I am sure you could spare some lovin time with me.
I still need a picture of those Dahlia's now that they have spread out.  Just take it from the porch.  No biggie.
Prisma colored pencils.  I got a beautiful coloring book by Molly Harrison (fantasy artist) and though I have Crayola colored pencils the prisma are so much more brilliant color. They also color softer so you do not see the strokes as much if at all.  I have wanted them for a long time.  I got some adult coloring books a couple of years ago  "The Nutcracker" and Fairy's and more recently Cats.  The new Molly Harrison one is Fairies, Dragons and Unicorns.  All my favorites.  Wish there were some cats in the pics...who knows, maybe there will be.
Ok, yes, I got candy we like.  I went for the chocolate mixes and got mars mix, hershey mix and nestle's mix.  Also ordered some child's play which is by Tootsie.  Also ordered mom some Caramel Tootsie Pops and for me some with chewy fruit centers instead of chocolate.  I assume it is the flavored tootsies that they have in their mix.  So many candy bars....I tell mom we will have about 200 and she said why we would only give out 1 and I said, I was thinking at least 3 between the minis and the child's play.  I will win, lol.
I have been meaning to tell you that you have been using some really cute tags lately, so many I love.  I am not sure why, but I especially love the bat one.  So cute.  I have to get to work, I am out of new tags, lol.  The below tag was a monochrome challenge.
Hugs,
