I got up today feeling a bit anxious........and then I looked at my emails, I had none.............and then I come here and I feel alone in a crowd...............and my sister's surgery is going to be 2/16 so more waiting and trying to stay in the moment of the day.
 
All I want is peace and I hate when I am weak so I am a whiner right now but I will wash my face and put on my tough lady suit and leathers and get back up and ride on.
 
Why me lord..............I guess there are so many people that need your  help more. cry

I know the feeling of waking up anxious. Hate it! Our thoughts are with you and your sister all the time. I pray for her every night. Her surgery sure is far off! What's up with that? A long time for her to have to wait. Try to cheer up. Maybe buy yourself something today! I'm sending you hugs!

Hey Lil Sis,

Love you so much and you aren't just another face in the crowd.  Because of you I have the courage to get up everyday and keep going.  I know how you are feeling so you just vent away.  You give so many pieces of yourself to all those around you and sometimes a person just needs a little bit of that back.  All of us would be lost without you and here is a place where you can come to heal with mutual support.  You are my rock and I hope I can be that for you as well my dear friend.

I have a dream of all of us getting on a Harley and riding down south to the coast to New Orleans.  We'll go to the French Quarter and have a luncheon at one of the many cafes, hop into the carriages pulled by horses, go shopping on Magazine Street and head out another hundred miles to the beautiful white sand beaches in Biloxi. . . Lay down in front of the warm waters of the Carribean and just soak up the sun :-)   And I want to hug some of the huge old oaks with the Spanish moss waving gently in the "perfect temperature" breeze. . . You know the ones I'm talking about. . . It would take all of us joining hands to even make a complete circle  tongue

The Lord hears you, because we are all His children and equal with our emotions in His eyes. . . I have a feeling that more good things are about to come your way sainted one. . . You deserve it. . . Keep your chin up and I'm sending you many prayers and warm thoughts :)

{{{Hugs}}}

Your Bro. . . Sam I Am :)

You better come Big Sis :) You bring your Harley down to ride alongside our Lil Sis and you all meet me here in Missouri and then we'll pick up all of our family along the way :) We'll have to go get Cowboy too so he can fashion you a special foot rest for your cast :) Maybe if we ride long and hard we can get there in time to help him blow out the candles :)

Rock on A/P Riders!!!

Luvs to you from your Wacky Bro :)

Lil Sis is in high anxiety as I just got my retirement pension fund statement...........I have lost 2/3rds of my investment...........I do not know what I am going to do.

I never thought I would work all those years and save and save and lose it now.  Now it is not a matter of working for fun but working to survive.  I have to sell my motorcycle.............dreams don't always come true, and I do have my family so I will survive.

I need to get my thumb surgery but it takes 3 months recovery and the co-pay etc. I have bone on bone in my thumb joint.

I know I am in the same boat as everyone but I am having a really hard time with this one.

OK, I will quit now and not whine anymore.

Yes You all have supported me forever and a day.  I am truly grateful for that.

Thank you for being here.

Kitt

Oh, Kitt, I'm so. . . so sorry about your pension fund. Two thirds? Oh, my dear God. That is so unreal. . . Our goverment and financial people can say what they want about a "recession" but it seems to me that we are in the new Great Depression. We also lost money in the market and that is one of the reasons I've been stocking the farm and out hunting yesterday. I will have my horse and probably a rickety wagon soon I hope. That is what we are investing in right now. . . Survival. . . And I'm sticking money in hiding places around the house for now before I ever invest in another "pipe dream" again. It makes me so sick to see the people I love like you losing hard earned money and assets.

I could not imagine having pain in my hands like you trying to get things done. My hip needs fixing as well, but can't afford it either, but at least I can get around with my cane and have a spare wheelchair for the future. Another reason I hope our new president will be able to help us regular folks with healthcare and whatnot.

You are not whining my friend. . . You are going through a lot and worrying about your dear sister, your son and the future. I don't know how you do it. . . You are a strong and wonderful lady. Classy and caring. . . You are an inspiration. . . You are a wonderful friend . . . You are one of a kind. . .

Many gentle hugs to you. May life bring you nothing but the best for your future.

Luvs from Your Bro!

Skitt I am here for you always. I work in the financial industry and just looked at my 401(K) recently and got really depressed myself. I have moved my stuff into a bond fund, because that seems to be the safest right now. Hope your investments improve as the market does. Don't give up hope yet, I really think things will turn around sometime soon. I will definetly keep you and hubby and your finances in my prayers.

Hugs,

Kitt, you have so much going on in your life and you always seem so solid and together.  We all have our days when we need to whine and vent.  I don't need to list all the things that are going on in your life, but if it were me, I would have fallen down a long time ago and not come back, yet somehow you are staying strong for your sister and everyone here and that has to take its toll somehow.  I wish there was something I could do to take away your struggles and make your load so much lighter to bear.  I am sorry to hear about your pension.  I got the shock of my life when I got my investment statement again last week and I have sworn myself to not opening the envelopes when they come from now on - just too depressing.  Please know that I am here for you and that you have ever right to vent and no apologies or anything necessary.  You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers and loved very much.

(((((((Kitt)))))))))

Don't get a head of yourself dear one. All these negative things, they are out of your control..don't let the "stinkin thinkin' take you too far into the future..stay Here, Now.

Now which wise lady told me that?

Dear gentle Kitt, know that we are all holding your hand through this. You are our HW queen, and Lyn is our Cappy. We need you both, but some confounded universal bad juju is determined to put you both through the wringer right now. If only we could make things right! If I could I would..

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

An oldie, but a goodie

This will pass..and you will come back kickin! turn smilewinkgrin I know it.

Love ya Kitt,

Megs

Good Evening Dear Friends,

I took Big sis's advice today and took my dose of Valium and went and laid down and napped with my dog for 2 hours.  When I awoke I knew I had to quit whining and do something before the money is complelety gone.............so I made an appointment with my son's finanacial advisor for next Wed.

Right now I have the whole retirement fund with Wells Fargo, Riversource Life Insurance Company.  I moved it last fall when things were looking bad to a safer fund..........but I guess it was not so safe. I have always been conservative with the funds but depended on the experts to guide me.  I know it is not their fault..........but my Father lived through the great depression and I learned from him to save so I did.

I am already retired so I feel fortunate to have found my new casual call job....................I will take any hours they need me and as I am a caregiver at heart I at least got into the field I love. so I am blessed even when I whine.

Oh yes and I love my HealingWell family for "standing by me"

I will be fine........................I know I posted to not look at the market but I have to look at my statements as they arrive monthly.

I am praying for all that have lost their jobs and homes etc.

I wish you all peace and thank you are two small words that mean so much for how dear you have all been today.

Peace and love

Kitt

Kitt,

I'm sorry you're feeling so low, sweet friend. You took some clear action by making the financial appointment, so try to feel proud of yourself for doing that.

It is scary to watch the retirement funds right now - mine lost 40% in the last quarter of last year. All you can tell yourself is that the situation will rebound, so it's just a matter of hanging on until then. And don't forget those ECON 100 lessons: when stock prices are down, you get more of them when your fund reinvests the dividends. That means when the turn around happens, you'll own more shares than you would have otherwise, and they'll pay nicely.

Thanks Percy,

Both my hubby and I are retired so I hope the market does not take years to rebound......................we do own 80 acres of wood tics up north but no buildable spot on the land.  I was thinking of moving to one of my hubbies tree stands....................eating vension and becoming a hermit.  smhair

I hope you are doing well and that you have wedding pictures to show us.

Hugs

Kitt

hEY BLUE EYES, you know that you are not alone, not with as many very caring friends as you have.  You yankees are welcome to ride the Harleys down here, but it's been in the low 20's and I hear the Harley heaters don't work very well in those temperatures. Another reason that I'm sticking with the Riviera.

hopefully all lost will be returned to you from a good way, and you get to live out your retirement with the wind in your hair all the goodness you do for us should give you great karma back. sorry for all you are going through you don't deserve it, the middle to lower class are really taking a hit hard, really hard and maybe the government will finally realize we are the leg they stand on, i know were scared of my husband loosing his job because of the problems at his plant, but i am trying to hang on to hope, i am sending many hugs and best wishes too you friend that all will be better.

Riv, my friend, I got your email and I cannot believe a whole year has gone by........I was glad to hear you are still in love with that Riviera.  :-) .  Did you see the movie Grand Torino?

I think you would enjoy the car part................ LOL.

Thank you for your kind words.

Bless you as I know you have gone through much this past year also.

Gentle Hugs
Kitt

Kitt, I'm glad to hear from you.  No, I haven't seen Grand Torino although I like the car and I've always been an Eastwood fan.  Being a dog lover you will love Marley and Me.  Keep the wind in your hair and go around the skunks.
