Yalinda - hang in there! I am not looking forward to those days when the kids grow up and move on. We keep ourselves busy to ignore what will be bothering us until we have time to settle down and it all sinks in. I'm sorry you are feeling so alone and depressed!
Boo - I hate to say it, but misery must love company as I felt a little better knowing there is someone out there who understands and I can talk to. It's been so hard. I will try to write you personally in the next day or two. I love the buttheaditis....I think my husband was born with it. So often I feel he just needs a slap upside the head. Thanks for the kind words and hugs everyone. Sorry to have gone off-topic so much.
I hear some more storms are coming. I hope everyone stays dry and well. I'm not sure if we're gonna get hit with the heat again, but my big toe was hurting yesterday....my weather vane.....it was killing during that horrid heat wave we had with all that storm pressure.
Yally, I'm so sorry you're feeling that empty nest feeling. I hate to say this (but it's the truth) my two oldest were such hellions that I took a deep breath when they moved out. The third nearly did me in. I still miss the laughter. She has the bestest laugh in the world.
SIL is actually feeling good right now and had a white count done today. Not very high as would be expected for someone two weeks out of chemo. But he goes back in on Monday for 4 days of chemo and radiation. Here we go again. I'm hoping he can keep his weight on during his good days.
CaMama, I have to keep the humor in this stuff. You're my "twinkie". We're going through the same frustrations. One of Willie Nelson's wives used to tangle him up in the bedsheets and hit him with a broom when he came home drunk. Sounds like a good idea to me........Really most of the time it rolls off my back....until he starts thinking I'm actually going to listen to his stupid ideas about arthritis. He comes from a group of people who think they were born with medical degrees. I might as well go out in the front yard and start chewing on the tree as to listen to the crazy stuff they say. I had Bell's Palsey thirty ago and still have residual paralysis on the left side of my face. It just adds to my sexiness. Woohoo! My hubby's brother is chiropractor and you'd think he had split the atom or something. One Christmas, in front of the whole family he said he thought he could help my face. I said, "I like my face. Maybe you should do something about yours!". I'm kinda used to ignoring ignorant people. So when the hubby tells me this nonsense about why I'm limited and he's not, I picture the woman Willie used to be married to. She's my hero!

It's nearly midnight in the cave where I have been these last two days starting the long recovery back to what passes as good health. I go away for a week or so and all the other men see it as an opportunity to behave like shiites again. I am not going to attempt to 3apologise for the rest of my gender nor shall I make excuses. As Loudon Wainwright once wrote 'boys grow up to be grown men then they grow back in to boys again'. It's all very well us all agreeing on the one hand that most of the time they are 'good men' but it is absolutely no smegging good at all if they only choose to be 'good men' when there is no call on them to be so, and it's time they were asked to either shiite or get off the pot. Nuff said.
Thank you all for your support while i hospital I shall respond individually toeach of you in duecourse.
Yally your daughts will soon appear at the porch door trailing her dirty washing behind her so fret not andinsultme instead a I ennjoy it really.

Good morning all,
Another morning of what feels like chasing chickens. Kids all running in different directions at the same time, grabbing.all the stuff they know they're not supposed to have. They are having a blast, I'm already exhausted, and it's not near lunch time!
Taking off early today to spend the weekend with three of my sisters, this will be interesting...we're all so different. Wanted to check in first though, and send hugs to all and wishes that you all have a peaceful, relaxing, pain-free weekend.
Bear, hope you rested better, not sleeping is the worst, especially when you're achin. Makes for really, really long nights.
Yally, if you ever need someone to call, e-mail me and I'll send you my phone number...would love to chat person to person anytime! I,too, wish there was some way we could all meet and share hugs....got a freezer full of stuffed shells and cookies, I could feed everyone!! Florida's not really all that far, is it?????
Boo and CaMama, hoping things are better with the two of you and your families...you're always in my thoughts and prayers.
Erin, how are you doing Better I hope...Ducky, things ok with you and the family?
Gotta run, still have to finish packing, if the little ones let me!!
Hi folks. computer was down for a few days. think it's up and running - for now at least.
I'm hanging in there. still wondering what's going to happen here around here. Guess I'm waiting for the sky to fall in.
Good to see everyone here....hope you all have a relaxing and pain free weekend.
Oh Man! Erin, I haven't weighed 100 lbs. since is was 6! Or anorexic after one of hubby's rhubarbs.
Duck, what can I say. I'm so sorry and a little infuriated. I resigned from the hospital just before being dismissed due to my ailments. I understand. I was doing something I loved.
Jody, please don't WWBD. That's a disaster waiting to happen. Heehee. I probably would have already blown the guy's butt off the face of the earth and be paying the consequences.
Have to work today. Ugh. Having many, many problems. Cash seems to be disappearing. Have to change to another ticket system. These days I don't go into Poor Me mode. I go into Mad Woman mode and get things done. Had an offer on the business, not a good one but it was an offer. Sending a counter offer today. Maybe I won't have to do this much longer and the employee in question will be someone else's problem and I can concentrate on making my body last a little longer.
Sending great big gentle hugs to you, Bear. I tood every advantage when I had a joint replacemant although it was just a toe joint. Not quite as serious as a hip. I read many books, slept a lot, wrote a lot, slept a lot, got hooked on soaps, slept a lot.......
