Hey Bear, how was your "sitting around in your boxers watching boxing day"?
Haven't said CONGRATS to you yet Erin. That is the best news I've heard in long time. You sure deserve it.
Snow finally stopped. We got 4 1/2 inches. It is so pretty and looking outside at the horses in the snow at dusk was breathtaking. One of these days I'm going to send some pics to you all.
Time for some meds so I can sleep tonight. This cold, wet weather is not good to my bod.
A belated Happy Boxing day to everyone,
Thanks for all the wonderful info, Bear, that was great..very interesting stuff. Now if Boo and Joan were really right, we'd be celebrating that holiday here all the time. With the four boys, their boxers and the fights, we got it covered all the way around..just kidding, about the fights anyway. After that first night, they seemed to get it all out of their systems and all was well. We had a great time, lots of fun, we got to laugh too, Boo!! If was actually nice to watch them all sit around, talking, cutting up with their dad. First one left Christmas night, next one leaves sometime today(taking the extra dog with him...the cat will be SO relieved) Seems to be have been non-stop company here though, and my station has rotated between the sink, the frig, or the stove. One more big gathering on Sunday, then I hope we're done!! No daycare this week, and I'm even more tired than when I have all the little ones around. Maybe we will get a couple of quiet days before they all return on the 2nd.
Hope you all had a wonderful, peaceful holiday...love and hugs to you all!
Hi Joan, the Bear is in Apsley in Hertfordshire, England. That is where the Bearis - google earth and seee for yourself. Nothing much to write home about and if Apsley doesn't show try Two Waters which is an older name, it's all now a part of Hemel Hempstead. [anus of the county].
Have a good weekend people and we think we got the money so the move is back on.
Very icy here and I'm not talking about the weather. Ugh. I'm so sick of this. Seems to always come at a time when my body is at its worst and I can't move, fall asleep, think...... I think the hubby has become a predator. He knows exactly when to strike. I don't react anymore though. That takes the wind out his sail.
Ok, that off my chest......I'm off today and having my coffee with my Friends here at The Healing Well Cafe. Such a nice, warm place to be. My favorite times are spent here.
So glad the $$$$$ situation has remedied itself, Bear. Hope you get to move very soon. I know you are running over each other where you are. I think I told you....we did the same thing with my mother. We had the most wonderful house, room for every kid + my mother to have her own little suite. It was a beautiful old home with lots of character and room. Old farm house. I still drive by it every day getting home. Very fond memories of my mom and me picking ripe tomatoes and her sticking them in her sweater pockets so she could pick every last one. I'm so thankful to be able to see the spot where the garden was and have those memories.
Very painful day today. When I get on here and speak to you all I am reminded to not "gird myself for battle" as that makes things worse. I'll not rise to the occasion today. I'll go with the flow and let the words roll off my back. I'll ask the Cherubs in my china cabinet to surround me today and carry me through. Thanks for listening, Boo
This is a very sober bear welcoming in the new year from downtown Apsley where we all gather at the crossroads and dance around the traffic lights come new year and evetrybody wishes everybody else peace and goodwill and then go back to treating each other like pieces of meat - present company excused of course. Awful load of hypocracy around this time of the year but if even one person changes for the goood surely it must be possible to put up with the shiite to get the cream?
I do hoope that evertbody here has a tremendous 2008.#

Now that would be a year for celebrating would'nt it eh?
Stay well ladies
Happy new year
Ah, yes, Yally. I love my Asti. Doesn't mix well with my meds these days though. Used to keep the little bottles in the fridge and have a wind-down glass or two or three.....
Happy New Year to everyone! This is the first time in 9 years I haven't had the oldest grandson with me on New Years Eve. Little lost but oh well. I'll have a spa night. Hubby gone to his meeting and will be staying for the sober New Years party. Pretty good idea for some folks who are living without alcohol. I've chosen to stay home. Sinuses are giving me fits. Another z-pak is needed.
Have a safe and fun night! Boo
