Balls - I just lost another post through my blasted fiingers not dooing what they were told. Liverpool went well and the cub has decided that it is wwhere he would like to go to university but he now knows after his latest exam rsulkts that he cannot wing ijt anymore and that he must now work his butt off for the next two years or it will e no go. One great sadness whilst there was the shooting dead oof a 11 year old playing soccer in the street - thought to be a gang initiation test, some test, committed by anothre youth maybe 15 or 16. What has surprised ands hocked me is that people are not coming forward with information. What kind of society are we developing into?
How is everybody? Erin you are one tough cookiie - I go in you come out but I am not made of the same stuff as you, you must have resilience by the bucketful to cope. I'm startig to get quite apprehensive about this op and I don't have any reason to be as I have had one successfully done already. Maybe it is because I know now what it involves. Can I borrow some of that reilience for awhile???
Whatever my thoughts on the middle east I do hope that your hubby comes back safe in mind and body Ducky and that youo never have to go. It's all very well teh politicos pontificatinjg from afar and even when it was their turn to go in days of yore their well placed poppas made sure their boys didn't go. Stay safe Ducky.

I had trouble posting the other day as well. I was logged on, posted a reply on this thread, but when I hit post it said, 'you are not logged on' The site finally looped and I thought my post was there - but lo and behold, it is not.
I woke up in tons of pain. Yesterday my feet (the tried and true weather detector) told me something was up and sure enough I hear the thunder storms all around us. I can see the rain clouds just a few miles away....somehow, we get all the cruddy rain weather, but no rain - yet I can pretty much SEE the rain pouring from the skies! It's quite baffling.
Bear, I will be wishing you well during your surgery and recovery. YOu have a large support group of prayers and well wishes over here. We'll certianly miss your humor while you recouperate!

So sorry I've been MIA. Just shower and go to bed. The heat has been horrible. Someone came to look at the shop Friday. Keeping my fingers crossed (I wish I could still cross my fingers).
Got fed up with the negative vibes around here and packed up and went to the lake Friday after work. Had a great time, eating, boating, playing cards, etc. Typical lake stuff. Hubby pretty hard to live with right now so I gave him a lot of space.
SIL goes into hospital tomorrow for 3 or 4 days......chemo and several days of radiation. The rest will hopefully be outpatient.
Bear, you will be in my constant thoughts as you go through this surgery. I'm hoping and expecting the best for you. I'll be checking back in from time to time. I'm going to have a very busy and stressful week. Love to All, Boo
I am what I am
Yet what I may become
Still lies at the core of me;
Shaped by the happenings
That mould me and hammer me,
Nurse me and nourish me,
Starve me and fulfil me,
Break me or strengthen me,
Making a whole of me,
Rebel or follower
Sinner or saint of me;
Fighter and dreamer
Comrade or enemy.
Yet what becomes of me,
Still at the core
I am what I am.
Love to you all

Bear, I think it is Tuesday in your town....so my prayers and well wishes are with you. I will send you a note for sure!!!!
All my friend who are East of the Continental Divide!!!!! We are hearing of flooding, rains, and horrid horrible no good weather! My prayers and well wishes to you that you are able to stay DRY, HEALTHY, and relatively PAIN FREE during these horrible storms!!!!
Jody, I used to nanny a few kids many years ago. Saying good-bye was very hard!
Erin, I hope the Remicade has started kicking in already!

No, I don't think it was difficult. My stomach gave me some issues for about week, maybe 2. The change in it helping was very subtle. I started it in spring....and I remember in late Fall I noticed that I had been feeling rather good and how it slowly came on that way. I wondered if I was in remission or it was plaquenil (I think at this point I had been on it 5-6 months.) So, I stopped taking it. about 5 days later I was in excruciating pain...so, I went back on it, it took about 4 days to start kicking back in, I had to deal w/tummy trouble for a week again....and that was it. The following Spring, I think I "tested" it again...same thing.
Not a coffee drinker, but I can vouch for the baily's in the cocoa! As Pooh Bear would say, "Yum, yum!"
Dearest Boo, Wish there was something...anything...that we could say or do that would help...but please know that my heart is right there with you!! I honestly don't know how you keep going day to day...sounds to me like your daughter learned an awful lot from her mama. There are so many things in life that I just don't understand, but I know that without family and friends it would be unbearable.
Thanks for the info on the plaq, Camama..starting it tomorrow night...am hoping that maybe since I'm already on mtx, it will start working a little quicker????? Oh well, one can hope. Momto3 said that she had some problem with an acne kind of rash, did it ever bother you that way? How's the family feeling? You guys have really had a rough road of it lately!!!
Yally, still vacationing? Or is this the weekend your daughter goes off to school?
Missing you Ducky, hope all is well with you and the family.
Erin, hope you are still feeling better...did you ever decide to start any of those language classes?
Time to hit the sack...kids come early.
hugs to you all,
