Good Day / Bad Day

Today has been both for me ..
My day started out having coffee with the man I love ,
he left for work and I left for the airport to
do a Make a Wishsend off. The families of these
kids are amazing , and the children are a delight..
So thrilled to be going to see Mickey or going to
the Grand Canyon -- whatever
their wish is . To see tiny people with such huge
problems and still see them smile is amazing. Makes me
thankful that I had a healthy child and
now we have a healthy grandchild..
Then I get home and my day changes.. I have a sister that
I don't speak to (long story), and she is having cervical
spine surgery today.. I am worried about her..
I don't like her , but I love her because she is my sister..
Then my other sister calls and I can tell from the
tone of her voice that something is really wrong.
Our aunt is fighting for her life and has been for the past
10 years . Well, she talked my youngest sister Karen
yesterday- It was very unusual because Doris
never calls during the week.
She was confused and cryptic.. Karen is really upset.
We don't know what is going on , as I said our aunt is a
very private person and does not want to "trouble" us.
Nothing we can do but hope...and pray

February SUCKS

It has been a crappy month so far..
I have a spot on my left shoulder blade about the size of
a tennis ball that
DOES NOT hurt..
(2/18/2008 -There seems to be some misunderdstanding
I do not have a lump om my shoulder-
Don't I look weird
enough withoutyou picturing me doing
Quasimodo impersonation???
It just meant that I
have only a small part of my large
body that was NOT in
pain at that moment)
The rest of my body feels like I have been hung over
a slow fire , had grape jam rubbed in my hair
and was beaten with a shovel.
Ahhh yes , the rainy season !!
rain and cold are killing me
Had the shots in my knee on Thursday and with the
crappy weather I don't feel any difference in the knee.
Golden Years my ass.
Everything is hurting , sagging or swelling
Plus now our subdivision has become the
target of burgulars.
Three break-ins in one week.
Now doesn't that make you feel secure??
The way I am feeling they better stay away from me
because they won't have to worry about the dogs,
I'LL BITE THEM if they break in here.
Oh God ,I need some sunshine
These dull gray days are killing me !!!
I am so down, I don't even feel like
reading . Even if I did , my face is holding
fluid on the right side so my glasses add to the pressure
if I have them on more than 10 min.
Isn't life FUN ?!?!?!?!?!
I am sick of being in the house ,and I am sick of the
fuc*$ng high gas prices that make going anywhere
a financial burden.

More from the visit

Tom is home from work--
he was having some pain --
well really a lot of pain--Kidney Stones
He went to the clinic and they sent
him home with a prescription for pain killers.
Now he just waits for the stone(s) to pass.
Happy Birthday Teresa!!!!
29 again and again......
Congrats on your raptor catch.
Cant wait to hear how the program goes .
Now for the latest Jack update..
He re-named all of the dogs while he was here.
Foster is "Ster"
Buddy is "Buud"
But the best one
Smokey is "He"
I guess because I would pet
Smokey and say --
He's a good boy or He's sooo big
So Jack started calling him "HE"
Classic one liners from a 2 years old..
Jack's reply to almost everything is
So Jack was playing on the exercise bike
and Pa asked him can you say anything beside NO??
Jack looked at him and said
and went back to playing
Yes, a smartass in the making
Of course we went to the fire station
because Pa has big trucks there..
Jack was high fiving everybody
but there is something new now
High five
New things -
Jack can open ANY door.
He likes to color, and
he hates to nap. He also sings and
dances to certain tv programs .
Picture to be posted tomorrow ...
Now for the ever present RANT !!!
For the elevendy seventh time I have
tried to get a BUNCO club going ..
Well once again the idea was welcomed
with all of the enthusiasm of a
turd in a hot tub. What is wrong with
people?? Are they sooo afraid
that they might actually do something
fun, that they ban all suggestions
unless it comes from the "church group"??
This is 2008
You do not have to spend every waking
moment in the company of your husband
and kids. Some of us have actually taken the
plunge and vacationed with girls friends,
left the country without our husbands, left our kids
in the care of their other parent. Yes, it is legal!!!
I cannot believe that people are so insecure
that the slightest hint of change and they
run for cover..
