Hello ladies. I am home kinda early from work. Queen and Betty, If you have a BBQ, may I be invited please. I would love to be able to meet ya'll.       Also, Betty, I will put another picture up(for a minute) but I don't think it is a very good one.                                                           Queen, glad you might have a car going. I  know how hard it can be to have to rely on other or walk to get places. YAH!!!!!                            SS, I forget, do you work with this guy and/or have you known him for a while. I  would wait a bit especially since you are going to tell him anyway before you are intimate. Just get to know him better first.   I read you have your makeup tattooed on. That must make getting ready easier.                                                                                       Cindy, sorry you are having such a fucked up time with your pump and insurance.                                                                                        MINIsmum, you are a brave woman to venture out with 6 kids. I find just my Robert to be a handful and we walk around Walmart singing as well. If  anyone doesn't like it, fuck 'em

Ok someone was talking bout O's??...hmmm after the first one im usually roaring for more like a crack head..lol..after about 3-4 maybe five depending on yungin..im out like a light and waking up feeling like i went to the gym...
      damn girl, I wish I could find me one like that.   You are a lucky lady.          As far as baby daddy, get everything you can from him. You didn't make those baby's by yourself and deserve the help.                         Alright, if I forgot anyone,no offense intended. Take care ladies. Cristy                                  Minute is up, picture taken down

Hello everyone-
Sun- My 2 cents- I would do it when you feel ready and comfortable.  Try not to wait so long that you would feel a loss if he didn't take it well.  If he doesn't take it well, it is him and his lack of knowledge, not you.  Good Luck and keep us posted.   HHHmmn. Nothing like cat piss to start your day off right.  :-\

Queen- That would be great if you got your car running AND you got your speakers working.  I finally got my hot water heater fixed after almost a year, my inspection sticker fixed  and my remote car started fixed after 5 months so I am a happy girl. Kinda. That was a nice pic of you.

Betty- LOL! You are too funny.  I have an inhouse lurker so I am not going to say a word....but you go girl. Glad someone besides Wish gets her groove on....when she gets it :)

Mum- Your comments remind me of the blog of that women that sold pokeman cards on ebay that her kids snuck into her grocery cart.  Maybe you should start a blog too, she now has a book deal, might have a tv show and gets like 3 G's a month for her blog.  She has 6 kids too but I doubt she can hold a candle to you.  Your lucky your hubby is with you sometimes, I never get to say shit, because I am always alone. The staring drives me bonkers.....I think I am going to take some pictures of the kids, put thier names and ages, our address and that we accept donations since they seem to think we are some sideshow attraction.

Wish- As one of my sons would say, that must of hurt, alot, alot, alot.  WOW!  Down there.  You must have a high tolerance for pain.  A man and and his money.  I don't know why that would amaze me, they expect to be able to do everything for nothing.  Take him to the cleaners.

Moon- I don't know how you do it.  I don't think I could drive if I felt like that and I certainly wouldn't be as well spoken as you are here, I hope you are feeling better.

Paulette- If you are checking us out. I have been thinking of you and I hope things are getting better for you.

Keep- My SO is on Atripla too.  I think it makes him meaner, depressed.He gets tired too but he is not good about taking it at consistant times.  I have trying to make him go back to the doc but it is like pulling teeth.

That would be so cool if we could find a central place for all of us to meet.  The logistics would be hell but it might be worth a try.  I have been thinking of putting something together for each of you but I would need everyones addresses.  It's nothing big, just a necklace with 2 charms.  Queen got me thinking  ;)  I'd like to show you all my appreciation but if it is not appropriate it I will understand.

Hi to everyone else I missed, I hope everyone is doing well.

Hi girls

Snow and Cjc-  thanks for the advise.  Now I am a little nervous since I was talking with Whitey just a few minutes ago and I was telling him about all of the drama that is going on with my friends.  I told him that he was lucky because I do not have this much drama in my life, I just deal with with my friends drama.  He then said that he does not have a lot of drama or problems and if he does he will sometimes just talk to his parents or his brother.   So then I was thinking OMG if I do tell him that I am positive is he going to go discuss it with his family to get their opinion, and who in their right mind would tell their son or brother to be with someone who is positive.  So now this has just sent me into a tail spin. 

Snow I love the idea of all of us trying to meet some where.  That would be so much fun.  Maybe we should figure it out sooner or later so we can start saving and pick a date.  I know that I will need to put in a vacation request in advance.   So maybe we should take a poll and see where everyone lives and then try to figure out a central place.   I live in California.  You are so sweet to want make everyone  a necklace,  I would love for you to make me a necklace as long as you would let me cover the cost for the supplies and the mailing.  So let me know if you are agreeable to that.  I would wear it proudly. 

CJC- you are a hot mama.  I did not get to see your picture when you posted it the other day glad you posted again.

Sun-
You could let him know that this is something that you don't let just anyone know and since he mentioned that he talks to his brother and parents, you would appreciate it, if he didn't and offer to take him to your doc if he had any questions.  Would that be an option?

CJC- That is a great pic!  I don't have the balls to my pic up :)

Meeting would be fun wouldn't it.  Sun, thats silly, I wanted to do as a gift, put the money towards your thingy your doing.  I can't think of it, Special Olympics?

Hmm, I don't know what it is but I have been feeling mighty happy lately even to the point of perkiness. I don't know if it is the celexa kicking in or that spring is right around the corner. I've been kind of happy go lucky, I don't know what it is about but hey I'll just roll with it. Or maybe it's something hormonal since I just got my depo shot a few days ago. I guess it's one of those things of why ask why.

Wishful---What in the hell made you get your clit pierced?!? My first thought would be the pain which would eventually go away but hell, it would be my luck if I had it done every other step I would be busting a nut.. :D If you're gonna drive up at the end of June then I will show my pitiful little hood. Girl, the hood rats are going to be hating cause for some reason people can figure out when you're not from here. I hope you're not allergic to cats... ;)

Snow--- I figured out the speaker problem and it sounds like my car will be getting towed somewhere to get fixed. My roomie's ex roomie whom I am cool with has done a little work to the car but can't figure out why it won't start. He in turn spoke with a friend of his that has blue prints to my car and I guess his friend said he would cut him a deal on the work. And whatever it comes up to I don't have to pay it all in full, I can make 2 payments. That works for me. The ex roomie knows how me and roomie struggle to get places plus he knows I have been trying to get it fixed for the longest. So hopefully by the beginning of summer picture me rolling.... ;) As for your dude and the Atripla making him mean, it may be the Sustiva affecting him. Has he considered other options? And as far as taking it the same time every day or night, well, honestly, I never do. I try to take it every night around midnight but sometimes have waited an hour or two later. But then my mindset is as long as I remember to take it, I am doing good because I know adherence is important. I don't mind you making me a necklace at all. Um, can it be something Pagan for the charms? Or a certain design? Let me know and I'll PM you some ideas.

Christy-- Now you know you don't have to ask to be invited. I would think everyone would be invited. If the idea could become a reality, it would just be a matter of when and where. Silly rabbit, you must've been puffing when you asked that question... :D

Sunseeker--- Disclosure is a tricky thing to really give advice on. You have already said that you would not be intimate without disclosing so to me that is half the battle. Timing is the thing and honestly, I couldn't tell you when you should disclose. If it was me considering I had just met him I would wait but that is just me. You have to do it when it feel right to YOU. I wish you luck with that because it seems like you are liking him as much as he is liking you.

I swear it seems like this week flew past. I have nothing to do tomorrow but make calls to give certain people my new number. My roomie has to go finish working on the house she started. I guess the finishing touches or whatever. That means another JAM SESSION for me.

I am off, I need to reach out and touch my bff. I think she has been feeling neglected. Well, not really because we have both been into our games and call each other when we take breaks....

First let me remember to say.....Win...Where are you?


Queen- My car has speaker problems too.  I found out yesterday, I need to get some module changed for $400 so that my service engine soon light will go off and my stereo will unlock.  Pain in my ass.  I was going to do all our necklaces the same in honor of the ya ya but you can have whatever you like :) I was thinking of an affirmation circle charm with like strength or something on it and then the awareness charm, all in silver, so know one really knows what we are aware of  ;D on a dog tag like chain cuz we are all fighters.
Perky is good. I like perky.

Hey all! Not much going on here. Finished report cards and now I have parent conferences next week. We, the fifth grade, have been getting ready for our big overnight field trip. We reenact the life of a 16th sailor. We stay the night on a tall ship...you know the ones with the masts and sails. It's a lot of fun. We role play for 2 weeks with the kids in "crews" and I get to be the Captain.. ;D You hear a lot of "Aye! Aye!s" This group has a difficult time following directions so we will see how it goes.

There sure is a lot of talk about O's. I am about to share something I have never before but I feel comfortable enough with you all...I have never had one w/my Mr. Wonderful, you know the ex who infected me. We are still involved and we do talk about it...someday I'll get there... :-\ I guess half the fun is the trying right...LOL

I would love to meet all of you! That would be really cool if we could make it happen. I am in southern CA

Later..

Ahoy there, matey.  That must feel good to get all your grading done.  You guys get to go on a fun field trip, is the ship still in the water?

                                                                                   Thank you, Queen. Of course I was puffing and yes , it does make me silly sometimes.                I would love to get together with any of you ladies but I will make sure I bring a fat bag for us smokers.                 Good luck  with the car. Hope it happens soon.                                                                                   Thank you for the compliment, Sun.   I don't really like that picture but that is me so I am used to it.            Good luck with Whitey. I think you have received some good advice regarding disclosure, do it when YOU are ready.                                             Vivyt, overnight trip on a boat with a bunch of 11 year olds.   You are a brave woman. Hope you have loads of fun.                             Hope everyone is well. I will check back later.     Cristy

Morning ladies:

Sun, disclosure is different for everyone.  I don't have a problem with it, and I don't really know why.  I guess I've just been through so much shit, that people knowing I have teh AIDS doesn't bother me.  I understand people being apprehensive though.  I think everyone knows when the time is right (or not).  When (and if) you tell Whitey, just ask him to keep his trap shut about it.  But anything he does once you disclose is beyond your control; you know that.  What other people do (or don't do) we have no control over.  I used to think I could control people, but that was just my ego.

Cristy, of course you would be invited!  How could you think we would not invite you?  I love your picture by the way.  You're a very attractive young woman.  

Snow, I think that would be sweet of you to make necklaces.  I wish I could do stuff like that.  Anyway, if you decide to make them, let me know and I'll pm you my address.  

Queen, heh.  I think the reason we're all feeling so happy is that spring is just around the corner.  Next week it's supposed to be in the 50's here.  I'm sooooo ready.  Girl, I hope  you do get your car fixed.  It's such a bitch to be without one.  Even though I've done it several times, once you've had one, it sucks to have to walk and/or ride the bus everywhere.  And who can afford cabs all the time?

Wish, I suppose if I was still stripping/doing pornos I would consider getting my clit pierced.  But, there's really no reason to do it now.  Does it add to the sexual excitement?  I've been with guys who use 'cock rings' and that really aids in the orgasm process.  

Viv, I'm glad you got those damn report cards done.   That fieldtrip sounds like it would be a blast.  Hey, don't feel bad about not having an orgasm.  It takes a long while worth of fucking/sucking for me to get there.  Try spicing it up.  

Last night I went to an NA meeting.  There was a guy there who admitted it was his first meeting and he was experiencing some withdrawals.  He had, I believe, his gf there for support.  All the men in the meeting gave him their phone numbers and we all, of course, made him feel welcome.  I've experienced what he was going through.  Withdrawals are certainly a bitch.  And at the meeting I saw an old friend (from NA) who's a biker.  Did I mention that I used to ride around with a (former) biker club?  They were called 'The Jokers.'  But they got disbanded by the Hell's Henchman, who got disbanded by the Devil's Disciples, who got disbanded by the Hell's Angels.   When I was hanging with The Jokers, it was during my drug days.  I was fucking one of their members.  He eventually went to prison in Florida, though, for cola dealing.  Then, when I got into recovery (from drugs) I met some 'clean & sober' bikers.  I went to one of their campouts and it was a blast.  They did the usual things, the weeny bite, the wap-a-jap.  I remember the main speaker.  It was this huge, burly looking biker.  When he was done telling his story, he sang 'Amazing Grace' acopello (sp).  

I don't really have much else to report.  I'm going to do my dad's shopping today and drop off his b.d. gift (he'll be 80 on 03/11).  Then I might get together with a friend later & go to an Italian grill.  I hope all you ladies have a great day & I'll check in later-

wish - a ring on your coochie! oh my goshy gosh. saw that once in a porno. real brave u are. i'm not even comfortable being handled down there by my bf what more being pierced, they'd have to put me under general anaesthetic for that! Does the ring contribute to your multiple O's? ;D
my 18 YO brother has two tats, an bitten apple and a heart or something. and an earring in one of his Will Smith ears. I've only got my ears pierced and will never get tatooed thank you very much, i hate needles.

snow - i'd love a necklace though i doubt if it would get here if u posted it..oh well. Its a very sweet idea though.

Sun - maybe u could try disclosing to Whitey before you both get too attached. just in case he cant handle it u know, so it wont be too traumatic. and make him promise not to tell his family. i'm keeping my fingers crossed for you girl. hope it works out

And about O's. the last one i remember with a guy was years ago with the most delicious guy i'l ever have. it was just incredible though i didnt know what it was when it was happening. ever since then its just enjoying the ride and never quite reaching the destination.
Keepingfaith, i agree with Queen that you jump your man's bones before he takes the Atripla. else u guys wil be sneaking off work for a quickie one of these days.  :D

Christy - thatsa a great picture!

Betty - how do these biker bands disband each other?

My "bf" explained his behaviour the other night. He said that he was making plans to leave the country and go to SOuth Africa or Namibia or something  so he was running around looking for places to stash his property and stuff where he could be sure it wouldnt be stolen. ??? he says he's going for a week he says. i asked him why he cant just rent a room and lock it in there and he said it would get stolen.  i dont know.  he said he only started planning it all when he met me because he wanted to settle down now and all but i dont buy it because he's been 'homeless' ever since i've known him.  i told him 'whatever man, we'll wait and see when and if u come back'.  He's stil around though.  he said he was going on wednesday. whatever. theres another little boy asking me out but i dont feel like doing all that again, please no!

i just had to share this picture. the wife's work. i wonder if the cheating dog's insurance paid for the damage :D

Good morning my fellow TBs.  90% chance of rain today and 70% chance of snow tomorrow.  After that, it looks like we're gonna get some sun for a few days.  Still won't be very warm, but I'll take the sun - it's at least a step in the right directions.  My irises are starting to come up.  The darlings are about 3 inches tall.  I have a big ol' list of stuff I need to do and another list of excuses as to why I "can't" do them.  My parents invited us out to dinner tonight so I get a break from cooking.  Not thrilled about the restaurant, but everyone else likes it and, hey, it's free.  

Snow, that would be too funny!  I'll make those sandwich board signs for each one to wear telling people their sizes and where they can drop off donations. ;D  Hubby and I have talked about putting a cup and a sign in the middle of the table that says "Stares: $1.00, Stupid looks: $2, Questions: $5, Answers: $150."  We have gotten free meals from restaurants because the wait-staff made retarded comments.  One waitress even followed me into the bathroom and stood outside my stall apologizing for the dumb comment she made to hubby.  I finally said, "Look, can we talk about this when I"m NOT peeing?"

Ok, I have to tell you this story.  Not sure how appropriate it is, but, oh well.  Ok, when our electricity goes out we have NOTHING.  NO water, phone, stove, nothing.  So, our electric was out for like 3 days because our co-op was arguing with the main supplier over who needed to fix the line that was down.  Anyway, we were going out to eat and a friend of our's called.  She has a son who is the same age as our oldest.  So, it was me, her, hubby, and 7 kids walking into this restaurant.  We could tell the waitress just really wanted to ask all manners of stupid questions but had done a wonderful job of holding her tongue.  Well, she couldn't hold it any longer and asked the dreaded "which kid is which?"  I couldn't help myself.  I told her that they all belonged to all of us.  That my friend and i were lovers and that hubby was our "guy".  We kept him around to father our children and take care of them and the house.  The 3 of us were in a total tri-nogomous relationship.  The waitress turned ghost WHITE.  i thought she was going to be ill.  We just all smiled.  Hubby just puffed out his chest and sat a little taller.  The kids kept on eating.  We still joke about it.

That's all for now.  I need to get the laundry done and check the kids' work.

Afternoon ladies,

Tendai, I'll say it again-dump his ass.  I don't even personally know this guy, but I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw a cow. 

Mum, I loved that story re you and your friend being lovers with hubby being the token 'man.'  I wish I could've been there.  That's priceless.

Well ladies, I went to my dad's, did his shopping and when I took the groceries back to his house, there was he was with his oxygen on and smoking. :o  He does this all the time.  I really don't think he realizes what he's doing. He needs a babysitter-seriously.  His house was trashed, it's unsanitary.  Of course the 'god' of the siblings holds the most weight when it comes to these matters, and I don't know how receptive to me suggesting anything.  Of course, if she's not and things don't change, I can always withdraw from the situation.  And no, I wouldn't have a problem doing that.  I know, sounds awful.  But hey, I gotta do what I gotta do.

I downloaded some songs this afternoon.  I had to pay .99 a track for the ones I wanted.  Some old Led Zeppelin.  Now I just need to buy some discs and burn the songs.  Then I can cancel the subscription I have with Napster.  Their price just went up to $13/month.  Way too much if you ask me. 

Other than that, nothing else going on.  I called a couple tattoo shops to see how much eyebrow piercings are & if they tatted HIV+ people.  One place was $30, one $35.  And they both said they didn't have a problem with working on someone who's poz.  Actually, one of the shops has already done some work on me, but the artist is no longer there.  So, at the end of this month/beginning of next month, I'm going to get my eyebrow re-done and get a tatt.  Hopefully. 

I hope Cin's doing alright.  Everyone else have a good one-

BT - I think I'm following you around the forums. ::)  I got the laundry done - just have to fold it all so the kids can put it away.  I need to take a shower and bathe the kids before we leave to meet my parents.  At present, my energy level is squat.

Snow - Hubby keeps telling me that I need to write a book.  We started writing one called "Stupid things people say when they think your life is their business."

#5 and #6 are having a birthday party next Saturday so I'll be off and on trying to get things ready for it.  Got some stuff done today, but still trying to plan it out.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute to plan a party.

Everyone stay safe and tough.  Moochies to all of you!

Damn, hard to believe it was in the 60's just a few days ago and now we're getting hit with a foot of snow. I did my run so I don't have to go back out in this mess. I have some Arbor Mist still and just got delivered some green so I will just chill out today.

I think I need to get with Goderator Ann sometime soon. I would like to change my screen name on here. Why? Well, when I took on the name of Queen Akasha it was because I felt like I was damned besides my love for Ann Rice. I would still like to keep the title of Queen just change it to Queen Tokelove. Maybe she'll see this and let me know. If I can't then that's ok too, I guess.

Snow---Well, if all of us having the same necklace is part of our Ya- Ya ness then by all means go with your original idea. It would make it more special than something Pagan. When you're ready let me know and I will PM you my addy. Damn, 400 to fix your speakers? What size speakers are they and what kind of system. That sounds pricey to me but I guess it depends on what kind of Boom you got going on. I can't wait for the car to get fixed, it is smaller than my Caprice so it should be rocking. If I pulled over maybe I can play the hard of hearing defense... ;D

Betty--- Well if your one sib is suppose to be in charge of running the care taking of your father, it sure seems like she is doing a piss poor job. I agree, he needs a nurse or someone who can be there on a regular. Too bad you can't find someone to stay with him 24/7 because that lighting cigs with the oxygen around doesn't sound good at all. I was just telling my son today that I wanted another tatt. He is thinking of getting one too. Tomorrow he is getting his nails done, a manicure so he is going to take me to get my nails done. He said he wants me up early now if I get up early and he doesn't show, that's his ass next time I see him. He knows I am not a morning person. But then I guess it depends on how the roads are with this snow coming down.

Wishful--- You better than me, I'm not getting my clit or nipples pierced. It'd be my luck I would snag them on something and fall to my knees drooling like a baby... ;D And I can't believe your baby daddy is trying to get over and being a cop at that. He knows the courts is going to make his ass pay and take it right out his check. What a deadbeat!!!

Tendai---Girl, why are you even listening to dude's weak ass excuses? Kick his ass to the curb and quickly, you can do bad by yourself, you don't need help.

Viv--- Overnight on a ship with kids? I'm thinking you may have to sleep with one eye open... ;)

I hope Cindy is doing better. I am going into game mode.

First let me remember to say.....Win...Where are you?

I'm here, I'm here!

This week has been one of those everyone needs a piece of Mom week. Mom, I need a ride. Mom, can you take me to my appointment.
Mom, can you help me do laundry. Mom, can you pick my girlfriend up from school since it is sleeting. Mom, can you take me to work. Mom, can you pick me up from work. Mom, can you take me to the grocery store. Mom, can you take me to get my proof of residence. and on and on.

Aside from work I'm a regular free taxi cab.

Yesterday night I spent watching Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium and then Lost. And then lovin time....
I'm trying to get my son on track with his life and part of that is him actually holding a job. He finally got one but the training place is way too far for him to walk or ride his skateboard. I'm not rich enough to buy him a car and I'm fairly certain he'd get lost on a bus.
I still get lost in Dallas. Him and I have only been living in this area for about 4 years. We know the area we moved from very well but this area is better.
Our old neighborhood was pretty low rent compaired to this one.

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium is a good kid movie. It does deal with natural death so if you have a small child you'll likely get the why do people have to die question. Its a mostly feel good movie that explores the magic of imagination.

Cristy, of course you would be invited!  How could you think we would not invite you?  I love your picture by the way.  You're a very attractive young woman. 


                                                                                     Thank you for the compliment, Betty.  Of course I know I'm invited, I was stoned and trying to be cute and ended up with whiny.                  Sounds like a hard situation with your dad and siblings. When my Grandmother had cancer my mom stayed with her for about 3 months straight, with only a couple days home the whole time. None of the other siblings would help. I was able to help keep her(my moms) house clean and dad fed but not much else.                                                                                       I worked at a strip club where bikers used to hang out. But I mostly had a boyfriend and didn't date but 1 of them. And he was too crazy for me. Bad temper, ex drama and he outweighed me by about 100 pounds so I let him go..                                                     Snow, that's nice of you to want to make us necklaces. I used to make earrings but forgot how.                                                         Queen, have fun getting your nails done. I have been thinking about getting mine done. They look like shit and since I got a haircut and am wearing make up, maybe I will Monday.                          Not much going on here, waiting for dinner. Boiled shrimp and sausage and corn and fries.                          Wrote my oldest a letter today and talked to his lawyer. He is looking at about 2 years for probation violation and several more years for attempted armed robbery and larceny and some other shit. As much as I hate his dad, I have to admit, he seems to be trying to help. About fucking time, I say. I am done with them both but do like to know what's going on. I'll check in later. Cristy

Hey ladies
I've been real busy lately with the girls softball pratices,
so we are talking about tattoos and piercings
well lets see  I have 8 tats and i have four holes in  L- ear, and  six in R-ear, tongue, navel, clit done as well.
And i forget who asked But yes it does help with stimulation (but only if a guy knows what he's doing) ;D still need the nipples done, haven't done that yet. 

Wish- I've had mine for ever 8 yrs and i can leave my hoop out for months and it goes right back in so i guess it depends on how long you've had it for. same with my navel ring i can go a year with out anything and put back in with no problems.
Mum- i hope you are getting better.
Ten- I thought you where getting rid of this guy (what happened?)

Well Ladies the tornado warning just went off I'll write more later,

Mum-
That story is hysterical!  You should carry around a camera just for those moments, so you can record the look on peoples faces when you make a smart ass reply to thier dumb ass comments.  All our birthdays are in the last half of the year which kinda sucks because school is closed and no one is around  :-\

Win- Talk about a bitch slap :) It always cracks me up when women hit like that. Part slap, part punch.  Glad to hear you are doing well and out rolling!  I can see why you still get lost.  I don't know if the roads are like this where you are but in Ft. Worth we would be driving down the highway in the right lane and all of sudden drive off the exit without knowing it was coming up and then trying to get back on the highway was complete hell.  It was kind of funny because it was all transportation people and we got lost at pretty much every turn.

Betty-  My grandfather used to do that all the time with his oxygen, used to drive me nuts.  He was an ornery old coot.  I love being around elderly people who speak their mind cuz its usually hilarious.  Do you know which design you are getting for the tattoo and where you are going to put it?  I was thinking of putting one on the back of my neck cuz I have long hair and you would only see it when I wore my hair up.  Has anyone got one there?  Is the pain intolerable?

Tendai- Please tell me there is an x before the bf now!  Complete shitbag.  Was that pic for real, if so, I like her style, hit em where it hurts. Car, clothes and pocket and they cry like bitches. It would be worth the try, we send stuff off for ebay all over the world and haven't had any problems yet. Try masturbation during the act and you will be good to go :)

Wish- I hope your kids have a great B-day!  I am still sitting here in shock that you AND Paulette have piercing down below.

Queen- My radio works fine when the dumb ass computer module doesn't f with it and lock it up.  The computer module is the thing that needs to be replaced.  The kids can still watch movies if they have the headphones on so I really don't care at this point.  You get one thing fixed or done and something else always pops up....always. :-[

I went to the support group today, took my friend to the store to pick up a gift and brought my oldest to visit his father.  He called me earlier in the week to tell me that he left his wife my first thought was to say and why the hell are you telling me? but I played it cool for my sons sake.  It was kind of ironic because on the way down there he was like " Why can't people stay together?" because my father is seperated from his wife and so he is sad that he doesn't get to see her anymore.  We were just driving into to where his father was so I couldn't really explain yet but I did tell him we could call my fathers wife and see if we could stop by to visit.  Maybe we should just call.... I don't think she is wrapped to tight right about now.  It is supposed to rain all weekend here, I think, so we are making a cake tomorrow, doing my daugters puzzle and making pencil holders out of yarn, tin can and glue.  Happy. Happy. Joy. Joy.  ;D
Sweet dreams,
Snow

Morning ladies:

I don't know what the hell I am doing up right now.  I've been up for about an hour and didn't go to bed until a little after midnight.  I have a friend staying the weekend and we were both trying to sleep on my queen size inflatable air mattress.  Well, I have very bad bones, and my apartment isn't big enough for the whole thing to inflate.  Needless to say, I was up and down all during the night.  He is, of course, still out like a light.  I'm trying to drink some coffee.  I have a bad cold also, stuffy nose, coughing shit up.  I've had that for about a week now.  I think I caught something at the convention I went to last weekend.  I was around a lot of people. 

Queen, I hope you get your nails done today.  I haven't had mine done in like 10 years.  It was cold out here yesterday, frigid.  Today it's supposed to be cold again; then next week it's supposed to be in the 50's.  I am so ready.  I can't take all this coldness much more.  How I wish I lived in Hawaii.   Yeah, my dad smokes when he has the oxygen on and in his nose. I'm waiting for a call about him burning his face badly.  My oldest sib wants all the glory, none of the gore if you know what I mean.  None of the hard work, just all the power.  To be honest, I'm about ready to call it quits. 

Mum and Wish, happy birthday to your kids! Give them all hugs for me.

Wendy, heh.  Good video.

Cristy, at the hole in the wall I used to strip and trick at, all the degenerates came out, believe.  Not many bikers ever came in there though.  I did bartender for a biker club before though.  I'm glad your son's dad is trying to do something to help your son.  About time, eh.

Snow, what support group are you going to again?  I'm sorry, I can't remember-happens when you get old.

Paullette, wow.  I would never have figured that you would have your clit pierced.  Somehow, I pictured you as this bible-clenching woman.  You go girl.

OK ladies, I hope this guy wakes up soon.  Then I might be able to have a shot at sleeping in my own bed.  He'll be here the weekend though, so I might not get too much more sleep, at least for awhile.  That's alright; suck it up and go on, I say.  I'll check in later or tomorrow-

Hey gang,

It's just you & me in the house Betty... I have given up trying to share beds, or even rooms. me & the BF sleep at seperate sides of the house. I'm glad you didnt drop school altogether, and about the convention, and the Native American guy - sounds very appealing.

Paulette, I haven't posted much but I have been checking. It's so nice to see you around. I'm surprised about all the piercings too. I haven't pierced anything except the hell out of my ears (11 & 14 in each and I have small ears) and 2 holes on the side of my nose that are already blocked. My wildest days were before the piercing boom. I do like the lip piercings though but I won't do it. As for nipples etc, yikes! I have tattoes, but my relationship with them is a tad complex - I hate em. Not b/c I don't like tatts, I do, but because of the trouble they cause me in my daily life, work, etc.

I missed you guys and was snooping around whenever I could. Betty, Tendai, thanks for asking about me. Tendai, I wish I could advise you something on your guy, but things are so complicated your side of the world. It may all be completely true, and it may not. It's so tough, you will have to just play it by ear.

Cindy, so sorry about all the health problems, I have my share of RSI but this is worse. Hope you unwind some (literally) during the weekend.

Wendy, a very belated congrats on becoming a very young grandma.

Queen, Sun, Snow, Keeping, Camms, Viv, Cristy, Cheetara, Minismom, and anyone else I missed, big hug from the Netherlands. I wish I could fly you all here so we can meet somewhere cosy and those of you who toke could toke away and we would all talk into the night, that would be so cool. All we need is, like, 20,000$ to set that up. If any generous sponsor happens to be reading, here's a worthy cause. I just enjoy reading you guys. I learn a lot.

I have been away at home (aka the holly land) with BF, or should I say fiance  ;D  ;D I'm still waiting for the ring though but he has dropped the question when we came back here. It was a beautiful holiday, but very emotional. a lot of shit happened at work before which did my head in and spoiled the beginning of the holiday, tilll I said: no more. I am working slowly on changing my reaction to things.

I have stayed away a bit from the forums, b/c they are so intense, and I dont know what to say. People (the women, and in general) here face so many challenges, that my own are dwarfed in comparison. Do you know that feeling? But then again I do have to deal with a lot myself, I just wished everyone was closer. I had to start working on my real life relationships and I am trying to do that, as well as take care of my stress injury but not spending too long on computers. so I guess I will be more passive from now on. time will tell...

Its me in the picture, with my dog who died a year later when she was 19... it was like she was hanging around to see me through. that pic was taken just under 2 years ago. I had been diagnosed 4 months earlier, and my health was pretty frail, but I was a hell of a lot thinner and tanner than I am now, that's for sure. Oh yeah and my hairs not that color, or texture, anymore. In short, I'm like one of those people on dating sites who put up their highschool yearbook portrait  :D

Nevertheless, however unrecognizable, its the first time I put an image to my "name" that is not some boring beachscape.

Have a great weekend ladies,
Hugs & the bestest wishes

i went back on cos i forgot to say something, Cindy, I didnt quite get the details but only the bottom line about you having to pay for the insulin pump, I dont understand the system over there, same as with Dan. i dont get it, but it makes me furious, its fucked up. i know thats not really constructive what i'm saying here, but i am really dead angry, theres so much of that crap going on. its atrocious. i know a rant isnt helpful but everytimes someone speaks here about switching the health system to the American model (they've started already by privatizing the state health insurance a couple years ago and pulling scams with the policies by changing them around so you get less for what you pay each year) i just explode. what fucking "model"?!

off to burn some negative energy at the gym, havent been in ages.

Paulette-You wild thing you! LOL! Never would have imagined those piercings. I only have two in each ear but I do want to get a tattoo. I have a rebellious streak in me but the part that wants to follow the rules takes over. My 18 year old sister tells me I need to do what I want and not listen to people...from the mouths of babes!

Everyone is posting there picture...I am still afraid of who might find out about me. Only my family knows. I am not quite "out there" yet.

Nothing is going on here. I have to give Vivian (my doggie) a bath, do laundry, grade papers, etc. The ex is pulling his disappearing act again. I'm so over it...

Have a good day everyone!  :) :) :)

Oh goodness, just caught up on the posts from a few days.

BT, my BP is usu 120/70, it was a cool 110/60 the other night after a relaxing drive to the chiropractor's.  The chiro has a new technique that she used on me (grastontechnique.com) and I felt wonderful 5 minutes later.  The ears are still ringing, but the visit was only $25.  This means I can go for 40 weeks 1x a week, until benefits are exhausted.  Chiro and massage therapy should help me through this.

Drag, I am VERY pissed about these new "benefits."  Things have really gotten much worse here over the past 3-4 years.  Most things on my plan are only covered at 50%, where back in the day it was a $20 copay.  50% adds up fast!  Love your pic!  You should also post that close-up of you in the pub from when you were on vacation, you look awesome!

Mum, your stories are GREAT!  I love hearing about the kids.  I can picture if you had started singing "We Are Family" or something in the store.  LOL  And the 3-parents 7-kids deal at the restaurant?  OMG, I needed a good giggle!  Hee-hee.

Ice is doing work today.  He's here but we aren't really interacting.  I need to go jump his bones now.

Queen, I need to read your blog, too.  Oh goodness, I am so tired today.  I needed my rest last night though.

Oh, and I get plenty of "O's" and I have no tats or piercings, just my ears.  Call me a "natural" girl, lol.

Forgot to add, SUN, I would go on one more date, and neck the hell outta him.  ;)  Then next weekend tell him BEFORE you guys get too close.  I have gone through the same thing before, talking to a guy on the phone every day and going on a few dates.  After disclosure some really do a 180.  I hate to be a downer, but just be tough.  Remember that every experience with disclosure helps with self-acceptance, and will eventually get you to the place you want to be with relationships in your life.  Its just a long process sometimes.  Best of luck to you, sweetie.  And who knows?  Maybe he has something to share as well, just like my Iceman did.   :-*

More soon!  Love you GFs!

Evening ladies:

Just a quick post, because I have a visitor from out-of-town staying tonight. 

OK, I've pm'd Death Squad about posting in this, the women's forum.  Really, people should read the welcome threads in these forums before posting.  We'll let you get away with it just this once.

Cin, I hope you get rest the remainder of the weekend. 

Keeping, I see no picture either.  Try again girlie. :)

Nothing exciting going on.  My visitor made me dinner tonight.  We kind of mulled around town.  He has never been to South Bend.  I was going to show him where Notre Dame is, but didn't get to it. 

OK Queen, are you still getting your nails done?  I'm wondering where you've been today.

The rest of you ladies, have a good one. I'll catch up later tomorrow-

Read your blog, Queen, great thoughts that you post, as usual.  :)

I have spent the entire day hanging out and relaxing with Iceman.  I was fine until about 930pm or so.  My back is achy and I am really hungry.  I ate, my sugars are good, but an intestinal bug has been going around the office.  One girl was out all of last week, another W - F. 

I hope its just my damn iron pill making me feel weird.  LOL  I'm calling it a night.

Sleep tight, GFs.

Nice pictures.

That reminds me, I might want to take down the pictures of my lipo gut and stretch marks LOL


Modified to include after above post info
Well apparently I am not able to modify the post with my belly picture. So unless someone with higher ability than me takes it off I'll be showing my gutts and all of its flaws forever. LOL

Hello ladies. Keepingfaith,you are beautiful. I like your pictures.              I do the same thing, put up a picture for a minute, then take it down a couple hours later.                                                                            Winiroo, there is a time limit for editing messages. I'm not sure what it is but only a couple days, I think. You are beautiful as well, stretchmarks , belly and all. I  see the same belly when I look in the mirror so don't feel alone.                                                                 Very lazy day for me. We have the house to ourselves and I am happily stoned and playing on the computer. Robert is watching Stuart Little.   When I went out to light up(No weed smoking in the house) the sun was out but it is still cold. We might walk down to the pond in a hour or 2.      We had Roast and veggies for lunch, then I had strawberries and melted chocolate. More of that later.                                        Meantime, laundry calls.                      Later, Cristy

Good afternoon ladies:

Well, a little concerned that we've not heard from Queen.  However, I read in another thread that in her area, they got like 21 inches of snow.  So, she could be snowed in somewhere. 

I had a weekend guest.  It was very nice.  Yesterday we went to a pawn shop (he plays guitar and wanted to check out the ones here, as he's from out of town), to the library because I wanted to see if they had 'Led Zeppelin-The Song Remains the Same' (which they didn't), and to the store to get the things he needed to cook me dinner with.  So it was a nice weekend.  Tonight my brother comes over so we can see the finale of (oh yes, bitches) 'The Wire.' 

Cin, I'm getting a little concerned about you.  You just seem to be feeling worse and worse.  I do hope something breaks for you soon.

Cristy, roast and veggies sound so good.  I'm starving right now, but I'm sure it's because I'm tired. 

Well ladies, not much else to report.  It's freezing outside and spring's a'comin!

Nice to see pics of you, Keeping Faith.  :)

Cristy, its cold and clear here, too.  Ice goe s to see his 12yo play soccer in a little while.  Its 34 degrees or something.  I wish we had snow, Maryland got jipped on snow this year.  Its usu all or nothing, and we've got "nothing."

BT, I'm feeling a little better today.  I don't feel too sick, but I feel a little "off."  Ice made us turkey wraps and chicken noodle for lunch, I'm eating things that are light in case that bug is trying to creep up on me.  I'm ok for the most part, but I wish my ears would stop ringing.  It should lessen some after a few more trips to the chiropractor.  I have mt massage Tues and chiro Weds this week.  Ice is going to come over Weds night to stay with me.  Next weekend he has his girls and then the following weekend is Easter.  He is going to be with my family for brunch, so that should be nice.

More soon.  :)

Moon- Glad you are feeling a little better.  Easter came quick it seems like we just had Valentines Day.  I hope the weather is going to be warmer.

Betty- I can't wait to see the Wire tonight, I can't wait to see how it turns out.

keeping- Nice pics! You have a beautiful smile!

I need a nap.  Does anyone take fish oil?  I just started it and I was just wondering if anyone else has been on it for a while.
Thanks,
Snow

Thank you Cristy.  :)

Cindy my ears have been ringing since the 80's. They ring all day everyday. I didnt think there was anything I could do for it.
I sleep with a fan running so I dont hear it and I've just learned to ignore it the rest of the time.
I did my internship at a chiropractors office. Dated the masseur breifly. The free massages where nice but thats about it. LOL

It was nice weather wise here today. In the 70's. Freaky ass Texas weather. It snowed a couple of days ago. Its supposed to rain off and on the rest of the week and its not supposed to go below 45. April showers are coming early and old man winter is hanging on by his nails.

Snow - I likely should take fish oil because I dont eat fish of any sort. One of my food phobias. I do take a multivitamin called Stress tabs or something like that. It has 500% of my daily vitamin C and 200% of B12. It doesnt have enough calcium only 2% or iron 22%. But I havent had any trouble with it upseting my stomach. Which is a plus.
I'll take this till the bottle is empty then look at other kinds and see if there is another with high vitamin C and B12. Or I could always add calcium and iron pills to what I already take.
Do you burp fishy or have any fishy taste when you take the fish oil capsules?

Sorry I'm rambling. I took some pain pills and I get chatty when I take them.

Hi Win-
No fishy burps yet  ;D the guy in GNC said they were supposed to be for overall health.  I just started them like 2 days ago and I am not sure if that is what giving diarrhea or the Atripla.  We also got some chewable vitamin C that the kids could take and they taste like sour candy. Yummy.

The sun was out here today but it was chilly.  The kids stayed inside all day.  My Mom and Dad picked up my older son for me and brought him home so all I had to do was go to the grocery store.

Hope everybody has a good Monday!

I googled it and got this link for more info.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fish-oil/NS_patient-fishoil

Gastrointestinal symptoms : Gastrointestinal upset is common with the use of fish oil supplements, occurring in up to 5 percent of patients in clinical trials, with nausea in up to 1.5 percent of patients (15; 25; 205; 244; 248; 8). Diarrhea may also occur, with potentially severe diarrhea at very high doses (249). There are also reports of increased burping (205), acid reflux/heartburn/indigestion (250), abdominal bloating (248), and abdominal pain (97). Fishy aftertaste is a common effect (248; 205). Gastrointestinal side effects can be minimized if fish oils are taken with meals and if doses are started low and gradually increased.

Morning ladies:

Nothing exciting happening.  I fell asleep during 'The Wire' last night.  Twice.  So I'm going to have to watch it today. 

Keeping, I forgot to tell you those were really nice pics of you. 

Cin, I've had a cold since the day after I got home from the convention.  It started out as a sore throat, then moved into sinuses/chest.  I know it's a virus, but damn, I wish it would go away already.  I haven't seen a chiropracter in years.  Or a massage therapist.  Medicare doesn't pay for such things.  I hope they help you.

Snow, I don't take fish oil, but I really should.  I have high triglycerides (which is normal for diabetics) and fish oil is supposed to help those.  I know a few people who take it for that reason and claim it helps.  I'll talk to my doctor about it.  Let me know how it works for you.  I'm assuming you're taking it for cholesterol/triglyceride reasons as well? 

Wendy, when I used to take pain pills, I would get a surge of energy.  Are you doing alright?

Well, hopefully we'll hear from our Queen today.  She probably got snowed in somewhere; I'm hoping that's all it is. 

I've been having a little problem with something.  My 'addictive' nature has been surfacing in another area of my life, which has nothing to do with drugs, but everything to do with addiction.  I'm not going to say right now exactly what it is, in case other people check these boards out; wouldn't want this to turn into something it's not met to be.  Let's just say it started again at the NA convention I went to, if you ladies get my drift.  I know if I indulged in it, it could turn into something destructive.  It's just really damn hard not to.  And given my background, it would be easy to slip back into.  I guess I'll have to up my meeting attendance.

Ok ladies, have a great morning. I'll check back in later.
