A daily 'check in' would let us know how everybody is doing.
 
For me... my slightly missing cat returned,  hooray!
 
How is everybody else?

Have a great day everybody. I'm doing well so far this morning. Didn't want to get up though, almost told my son that we would stay home this morning. I didn't because he needs to go to school.

Jaimee feel better soon.

Let's do a head count!!! So glad Kitty is back. katie and I had a productive meeting with her psychiatrist (new) very bright and warm...and she has alot of pull at that hospital-yah!

Joyce I feel for your struggle over radiation. Pat had it and hormone shots. They said when psa starts going up again, they'll give him the shots and that's it But Pat has gotten 5 more years b/c of the radiation (but he is younger and in pretty good shape) That is a very hard and personal call-I just don't want your husband to suffer too long when it metastasizes. But, Joyce, Pat and I had a conversation about the end and I'm sure you'll both do what is right for you.

I recently reconnected with friend from high school, he is visiting end of Oct and my sis in November. I have fibro, too which exhausts me then I get depressed. So I am stressing I won't be able to handle it. I am so sore from driving to Gulfport yesterday-it's really quite pathetic-lol

I hope you have a nice day. We will be in 90's but 40's tonight. You should hear these southerners complain about "cold"-lol

Better late than never i guess. But here I am. Cold this morning. Bu8t I think that the wind stopped. Which is great. Hope to walk today with the dog. She loves that. My body loves it because it keeps me slim and trim. lol... Just kidding, but it does help. I have lost 25 pounds and don't want to gqain it back. It is the beginning of the food holidays too. Sweetest day bthrough Valentines day. It is all candy... Bummer. But it tastes too good not to try some. Hard I know...

Have a good day all...

Hugs, Karen

Good job Karen!!! I had lost 20 lbs, then I started abilify and sweet tooth is horrible, put 8 lbs back on! Oh well, I'd rather be a fat happy person than a skinny depressed one-lol

JAMES!!! You get better right this second! This phase seems particularly stubborn,will remember to say extra prayers.

stillme-yah on a good day, I didn't want to get out of bed either, and then kept Katie home with this throat thing going around. 2 of her friends have mono too!!! I kinda like when she is home and I can baby her-she's a good patient.

We, my filthy kitchen and laundry mountain range are calling

Everyone have a nice day

Really great to see the heads counted today!
 
An interesting day for me.. Out of cigarettes.  This is not by choice.... but necessity, they cost too much!  Don't know how long I'll last before I cave in.  Shall we venture some guesses?
 
Yes, John and I are discussing our final exit.  FIRST, tho we need to get wills prepared....and I need to get rid of some junk.  Wow, that will take years.  Guess we'll be around for awhile.
 
about typing,  our eldest types 85 words per minute!  Asked him how (I test at 45)... and it's the new keyboard called Dvorak that makes typing so fast.  The standard style is called Qwerty... (look at the left side of the top row on your letters to see where they got the name).  Folks who learned on Qwerty find it hard to change.
 
Off to do some errands.  See you folks again tomorrow.

I can type pretty fast actually, but make mistakes. So maybe I can't type fast. I don't think I could ever change the way type. Don't know what half the keys on the keyboard are for. lol...

Joyce I didn't know that you smoked, I do too. I quit for four years in the 90's and then for a couple of months about a year ago. But I always start up again. I try to stay conscious of what or how much I smoke, that keeps it down some. They are so expensive. I tried rolling my own, and other brands, but I like marlboro light 100's and that is all I can smoke. I use to smoke Kool's for about 25 years. But switched to these when hanging out with a friend. That is what she smoked and I got use to them. I tried basics, but they burn up way tooo fast. My hubby smokes those. They are cheaper. It is a bad and nasty habit. But I always enjoyed it. Sounds stupid I know, but I like to smoke. I feel better when I don't though.

I hope that you all have a good day. Keep us posted.

Hugs, Karen

I confess, I smoke too...I'm down to 10/day, but I cannot imagine my world withouta cup of coffee and a smoke in the am-lol.

I found our state employment service right down the road has a great free class for puter dummies like me-they do excel and keyboard skills so zI 'll be able to tell you what they do Karen-lol. There are agencies contracted by fed gov't to place disabled folks-lots of them are in home w/ phone and computer. I can sit in my sweats, smoke and eat chocolate cake all day with Law and Order on in the background-lol.
Really though, working will give me a sense of value and badly needed cash...Katie will be driving soon and we want to help a little and there is no money for more clothes, she's getting to 5'11"!!

so happy and excited to have some progress and changes going on. Please say aprayer forme.

I'm glad Joycethat you have discussed that. My hubby's cancer will go in his bones ultimately , DNR, no going back to hospital, wants to die at home and wants a big Irish wake with more laughter than tears, lots of whiskey tale-telling and seafood. Hopefully many years before either of us have to plan anything.

Katie home sick today so I'm going to bring her some orange jello(can't swallow)

Have a lovely afternoon to all

Maggie

I was down to ten a day, but now back up to a little under a pack. Like I mentioned before, If I am conscious of what I smoke, I smoke less and enjoy it more. But I use to smoke so much and half the time, I didn't even realize what I was doing. Just a habit. I was so healthy in the 90's. No smoking, no drinking. I walked a lot. Took my dogs out for long walks daily and in the winter I cross country skied. But them days are over. I still have my skis though with hopes every year of using them. Maybe this year I will. All I have to do is step into them and go. But easier said than done. There use to be an old stockcar race track next door and I would ski laps around it. Sounds boring, but it was fun. It had a little slope to it coming down around a curve and you felt like you were flying. I use to shut my eyes for a quick second to see how it felt. Very free feeling. But I didn't want to fall. I miss them days. Especially when I was healthy. I was in my 30's then. I had a girlfriend that got me skiing. We use to go through the woods by her house. There were some really cool places. One was by the river. We left a porceline cup hanging in a tree and would get a cold drink of water with it. Then somebody took it. Bummer. They probably figured it was an antique and liked it. Then there was a spot that had huge stumps in it from a fire back in the early 1900's. We called that "stump junction". We had names for all the little spots. I sure miss them days. I hadn't seen my friend for years, then I found her on facebook. We had some good times together. We did a lot of canning and cooking. It was fun...

Well, I am rattling again. Hope you all don't mind. Kind of reminissing. I know I probably spelled that wrong plus another word. Oh well, that is me for you all.

Have a great day!!!

Hugs, Karen

reminiscing I think? I used to love to ski, it is an exhilirating free feeling...had to stop when I fractured my coccyx(tailbone). I can see that clear cold water rushing thru the snowy woods,,,nice.

There was a beaver dam there. I remember crossing it one morning when it was dark and we were going hunting. Coming back was daylight, I don'[t know how I ever made it. We were on a small island in the river. There were corner markers for the bear's territory. Spooky... Then there was a guy who was running upstream, we think he was in some type of training. Kind of ruined our hunting though. There was snow, it was cold, I don't know how that guy was running in that cold water.

Sweet dreams for all
