Betty-- I thought I would wait and comment on what you said in the last thread about clearing out the house and things. Maybe at the moment you are just numb to it all like you said. But I am thinking when you clean out the house it will probably be the time you break down even if it's not because of your Dad's passing but the memories of your Mother when you come across some of her things. I know that's how it hit me when I went through my  Mother's things. The anniversary of her death is on April 30. My Dad's was on February 22 and I made through his. I think I will be ok on the 30th too. Anyhoo, not about me but just don't be surprised when it happens is what I am saying.

I am off to the other threads and maybe do some gaming today...Later Ladies...

good day ladies!, I survived another birthday!. didn't do anything and happy.

Queen,
I like that title it makes me feel like jumping up doing something, with my lazy ass lol, I didn't even go to church today. Just don't feel like doing nothing , no energy. Queen, I know what you mean about cleaning a parents home. My dad died a couple of years ago and he was found dead in his apartment, we found out he had cancer and never told anyone. I still have not gotten over it. We lived in different states and I begged him to come live with me,but he was stubborn. The hardest thing was going to his mailbox and getting the letter I had just sent him, strange enough there was a lady who had sent a copy of a pic she took of him and his friends sitting on a bench , like the old timers often did everyday, she was a tourist and just happen to meet my dad one day passing by.That was the last picture he ever took. the day I went to clean his apartment I got sick to my stomach, with grief. I had to leave for a while.

Betty,
 hope you are holding on, my prayers are with you.

p.s Queen, by the way your dad, died on my dads birthday, feb.22.

Queen, there's a song by Megadeth called "Addicted to Chaos" ans some people just ARE.  They can't let anything die down and they keep butting their noses in where they don't belong.  Sounds good that you all may be planning to get a house in the future.  You'll have to, with that petting zoo you got going now.  :D  JK

BT~ Still pain while you pee?  The stress can't be helping.  I wish you felt better, but I know that good head on your shoulders will help you through all of this.  I can't imagine if I had to go clean out the house I grew up in.  My parents are still in the same house they bought when I was 14, back in 1984, so its been 24 years.  They prob won't move for a long time, either, its a great place.  I am so sentimental, I cry over all of that kinda stuff and just let it out.  I like your quote, too, about yesterday and tomorrow.  Iceman has taught me to be in the present as well, its really helped me to enjoy TODAY. :)

Betty- I can't even imagine what is going to be like for you to go through your parents house.  I am an only child and my mother still lives in the house that we moved into when I was a toddler but she had a major fire in the early 90's so we lost everything then. My parents have recently started talking again and are kind of leaving me out of the loop but just as long as my Mom is happy and doesn't get hurt, that is all that matters to me.  Hopefully all your siblings will come together and make it easier for everyone.  I will be thinking of you this week.

Queen- Your house sounds like mine now, total chaos, but it's all love.  I really need to win the lottery or something so I can move somewhere 2 or 3x the size I am now. :)  We only have 1 bathroom for 6 people, not fun.  At least I can send the boys outside to pee in the summer because we are surrounded by trees on 3 sides. :)

I am definately going to get the cobwebs off and get to walking again.  I have a feeling I am going to have a busy summer so I better get in shape.  I survived the bowling alley today, I thought my head was going to explode for a little while there, I didn't get much sleep last night because we stayed up late watching Hustle and Flow and Miami Vice.  One thing about the Atripla it definately seems to give me more energy during the day.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Take care,
Snow

Netta--- My father passed away from cancer too. Everyone else in the fam knew but I was the last one he told because he knew I wouldn't handle it well. I know what you mean about having moments of not feeling like doing anything and there are times when I don't do anything but stay in bed and rest. And I think that helps sometimes because they say when you rest or whatever that is when your body heals itself, not including the virus but other injuries but I am sure resting helps in some way with the virus.

Cindy-- The animals are the main reason that we want a house is so the cats and dog can go outside. Well my 2 will be strictly house cats but Roomie #1 cats are use to going in and out. Plus Roomie #1 has a lot of stuff and she needs room for her extracurricular activities that she does.

Betty- You may have to break down and buy some cranberry juice, nothing works like the real thing sometimes.

Snow-- You posted as I was posting. I haven't gone bowling in ages, I actually like it and use to bowl for a league when I was younger. I don't think there will be any more humans joining us but we love our cats and Roomie #2 loves his little ankle biter. I would like to add an iguana to the hit parade but that would be after the move. I have been hearing you can an iguana and the whole starter stuff for around 80 bucks up at the pet store in the mall. You may hear me mentioning having one, one day... ;D

I thought I would do a drive by since I am taking a break from taking these braids down. I'll check back in later.

Looking at the title of this thread, we should have no problem getting our asses in gear, as long as we click on that link that Doxie posted in the "Always A Queen" thread.

Hi Ladies,

Betty, I liked your motto so much I use it in my signature, referenced of course. Hope that's OK. I dont know what to tell you about what you go thru right now. Just that I admire your strength. Again and again words fail me when using these forums, I always only write about 5% of what I feel.

Netta, I like your tude. It's not obligatory to do something specail to enjoy life is it, happiness is inside, the quality of your thoughts is the quality of your life. I know that but struggle to live by it.

Snow, my house is a total dump. I clean it like every 2 weeks, but not too enthusiastically. I am ashamed to admit... I have no excuse, no trip lets (HOW do you do it?!) no pitbull in a cage (lucky break with the break in), I am just lazy.

Looks like everyone is picking up when spring is around the corner. Its still cold here, I just cycled home from a friend's house at 5c, but with the wind on the bike it feels like 0. My BF (fiance, actually, but I had written it not so obviously a few days after the proposal - which occured, not very Hollywood style, in bed after sex) went to Spain for a week. I was originally supposed to go with him, back in the Holidays when I was there I promised to return for easter, but it's over 30 degrees there now and I chickened out of wearing short sleeves and having them see I have a tattoo. That's right, a teensy tattoo has prevented me going back until the cooler late automn. How will I pull this off when we are married? How will I continue sneaking around with my meds when they dont even know I have tattooes?

well, I'll try not to freak out too much about it and just take life as it comes, b/c we are getting married. I dont know why I keep it on the down low, as even with the friend I visited today we were talking about this and that and then halfway into the visit I was like oops, completely forgot to tell you something... and I really did! it's like I havent quite internalized that yet. maybe when I get an engagement ring that'll change... we have told families and some friends and collegues, but considering this was decided on 1/3, not that many people. I guess on my side, it's b/c there is so much more to the story than people actually know. My friend of today knows what I went thru, she was there when my ex dumped me and my health was crap and I was walkng the thin line btw throwing myself under a train and putting it off till the next day, but her husband and kids who were there are completely oblivious.

dont get me wrong, I am absolutely overjoyed, but I take this joy in cautious little sips. My knees are shaking... I feel like I won't be relieved until her gets back in a week. but the wedding ceremony itself is not planned till Nov, and that will be decided around Aug when we see his employment situation and whether or not I am pregnant yet, and for how long if I am... but in any case we'll do it until then, whether in Nov in a party in both countries, or just here in Holland at the city hall.

Crikey, so many changes. I can't quite believe it, like I said if I dont take it one day at a time, including all the annoyances and everyday hissy fits (bosses etc) I'll flip out. I'm so freakin happy ladies, but sad and emotional at the same time. I do know that even if we never get married or have a child, I am happy to be with this person, I am not there b/c of the future but b/c of the daily present. He is my angel. But that kind of dependency is absolutely terrifying. I think I dont have to say here why.

Well this has turned out to be quite a brooding reply. I just want to say if I'm on this emotional wave that no matter what, I have come to look at you ladies as role models. I mean all of you for so many reasons. The more I know you, the more it is so. For some reason, it's easier to warn people against something they might be doing or should be looking out for than to tell them how truely admirable they are for so many of the things they do. It's astouding. So I take that on the road with me wherever it's gonna head. There, I had to get the sappiness out of my system. Don't worry I'll be back with some ranting before long.

Drag!  So its TRUE!  OMG, I was in such a fog and skimming the threads a week ago, I must have missed it!  I am so happy for you both!

I think I understand some of what you feel.  You are "taking the joy in cautious little steps."  I feel the same way about Iceman.  I actually feel that there is some stability now with him in my life, and there may be great (good) changes ahead for me.  Even good change can be emotional and overwhelming.  Just breathe and be thankful for what you have with this wonderful man!  :D

Hello ladies,
I hope everyone is feeling well.  I'm doing okay.  This past week, I had some bad news and some good news.  My aunt Lenora has pancreatic cancer (Stage 4 diagnosis) :(.  Apparently, she had been ill for quite some time now but no one told me until a few days ago.  I spoke to my aunt directly and she didn't want me to worry.  Of course, I'm worried and had to see her immediately.  The good news... a cousin of mine had a healthy baby boy (a new edition to the family).  I was happy to hear the good news.   :)

Evening ladies, today was a looooooong day.  I picked my sister up this morning and we went to my parents'.  Then all the sibs went to the funeral home around 1:00 and got the service stuff together.  My sister who flew in wanted to see my dad to tell him good-bye.  The funeral home knew about this ahead of time.  They embalmed (sp) my dad and had him all cleaned up (he's going to be cremated).  He looked wonderful and in his hands was a picture of him and my mum, when she was in the Hospice bed, out of it, and he was kissing her head.  That was it for me-I broke down.  Yes, I cried for a couple minutes.  Then we went back to my parents' and a lot of food was brought over by different people.  We sorted through pictures and my sister brought out an old trunk my dad had in his closet.  I found out a few things about my dad he never shared with us.  He has an autograph book and in it were Buddy Rich's autograph (he's a famous drummer) and Frank Sinatra's autograph.  Yep, old 'blue eyes.'  My dad met a lot of different people when he played drums in the nightclubs in Detroit.  It was all interesting, but tiring. I only got home a couple hours ago.

Queen, I have some cranberry juice that my sponsor brought me yesterday.  It's the kind with Splenda in it.  So I'm going back and forth between that and water.  She also brought me apple juice and grape juice, both made with Splenda.  I truly appreciated that.


Cin, I really do try to stay in today.  Why worry about a day that's not here and things that might not even happen? 

Snow, six people and only one bathroom?  Wow.  I don't know if I could stand that.  Do you get to have your full time or are you constantly interrupted?

Drag, you just moan on girl.  Planning a wedding isn't easy.  I'm glad you've found your soul mate.  You deserve it.

Cheetara, sorry to hear about your aunt.  It's not easy losing someone we love.

I'm going to check out a few more threads and probably go to bed.  You ladies have a good night.

Hi Betty-
I am glad to hear they did such a good job with your Dad.  What a nice touch to put a pic of him and your Mom with him.  Sounds like your Dad was quite the drummer, that must have been kind of neat to find out.  How are you feeling otherwise? Are all the fluids helping your infection?  LOL.  I am constantly interupted in the bathroom, if not by kids, by the dogs, if I am in the bathroom by myself, I am home alone.  Something happened to the door jamb so that I can not lock it correctly and even the ankle biters can push it open.  I don't know if I ever told you guys this but my son with the speech delay came in one day as I was getting out of the shower and points at me and says " Are those your mintballs?'  Mintballs? Me? What is he talking about? I had been teaching him his body parts and during bathtime and he was asking me about my nipples. Mintballs. Nipples.  Close  ::)

Cheetara- Congrats on the new baby in the family and I am sorry to hear about your aunt.

Drag -  I so feel the same way about cleaning except my reasoning is it takes the kids about 2.2 seconds to make it a mess again.  Seriously, we all cleaned up this morning, it is like a tornado hit again already.  It's kind of depressing but then I don't know anyone around here so I never have to worry about unexpected company- except burgulars,  I guess. You rode your bike at 5 c.  I like the cold but I think my limbs would have frozen in place.  I am glad you found someone you are happy with.  If you already met his family, I am sure they already love you, tattoos and all, and if not, it is thier loss.  I would be gun shy too seeing what you have gone through in the past, hell, I am gun shy.  It is very hard for me to open up all the time when I don't feel safe and protected.  Hope you have a good week without your honey.

Queen- You are just taking out your braids now?  Wow, you had them in a long time.  I am still impressed you can braid them yourself.  I do not have the patience at all.  I never knew bowling was such a big sport, the last 2 times I have went with the cub scouts it has been packed.  I want to go rollerskating, that is what I miss :)

Hope everyone has a good start to the week tomorrow. I can't believe Easter is this weekend.  Hey, Did you guys know that March 10 was Women and Girls HIV Awareness Day?  I found it on some website a couple days ago.  Eekk. I thought it was like 9:30, I have to get to bed.
Night all.

Helloooo ladies.

Boy oh boy what a busy weekend I've had. Billy <my sweetie> and I went to a 50th anniversary party last night. It was sweet. The couple is Billy's adoptive parents. His Mom passed away roughly 10 years ago and they have been surrogate parents for him.
They are a Jewish couple. They renewed their vows last night. I've never seen a ceremony like they had so thats why I mentioned them being Jewish. It was really interesting.

Today we went to my nephews 4th birthday party. We took the grandbaby with us to meet my family. It took us two hours to drive there and back but thats normal, this state is huge. I got to see my cousin I haven't seen her since my husband's funeral.
In all it was a really good day.

Billy just told me to tell you ladies that you all are invited over this summer to swim in the pool and he would be happy to put suntan lotion on anyone who needed it. LOL goofy butt

Betty - I think its weird you'd have to embalm your Dad if he is being cremated. Or is that because he is having a viewing?
I remember after Michael died I went thru the house throwing out most of his belongings. I was half out of my head and had hidden my wedding ring in a stuffed animal because I was too paranoid to put it in my jewelry box thinking if someone broke in the house they'd steal it but I didn't want to wear it. <I was nuts> Anywho I threw away a bunch of stuff including stuffed animals and later thought I had thrown out my wedding ring. LOL Thank goodness I didn't. Apparently I moved it sometime during my madness.
My memory of events around his death is all screwed up. Same with Justin's death. <my son>
I think I blocked alot of things cause I just cant remember much of anything around those times.

I'm rambling.

The cranberry capsules have more of the good stuff in them and its easier than drinking a gallon of juice. If the juice doesn't help please try them.

Snow - Mintballs LOL  Justin was in speech therapy too. I have a bunch of words like that I still use today. Too cute.


I'm feeling very chipper and I want to tell you all I enjoy reading your posts and I'm glad to have you ladies in my life.

Hie Ladies
hope everyone had a great weekend. mine was fine. i dint go for the baby shower after all. too expensive with having to get 4 buses to and from and buying the presents and nappy and whatnot. i went to my uncles to see my mum who really should be getting home to her husband she abandoned for 3 months. my little sister was looking so frail. she's stopped breastfeeding her baby whose 14 months old now so one of her boobs is swollen to twice its normal size and quite painful. the baby himself has some condition in his eyes where he wakes up and his eyes are stuck shut with some gross gunk that looks like wet sleep crust or something.  i worry about them they're always sickly if its not flu, its cough or stomach or the eyes or something. i just hope its not HIV related. the kid is now trying to walk so when he stands up and teeters around with his arms wide for balance he looks so tall and thin my mum says  he looks like those funny worm aliens in Men In Black who be drinking coffee in the kitchen when will smith goes for his interview at the MIB HQ.

i just had a phone call from the police asking if i knew that ex of mine who stole from me 2+ years ago.  he's had so many run-ins with the police even when we were still going out.  the first time he may have been falsely accused but after that he was involved in illegal gold, diamond etc deals and crossing borders without a passport and all that.  i just told them i last saw him years ago. they wouldnt give me any details as to why they were looking for him and i sure as hell dont want to be involved. why the hell did he give them my number?

have a great day everyone

Good morning ladies--

Snow, mint balls-love it.  Kids are so creative, aren't they.  I don't know how you do it with all those kids.  You are a strong woman.

Wendy, my sister from Arizona wanted to see my dad so she could say her good-byes.  Maybe they didn't enbalm him, I'm not sure.  But they really cleaned him up.  He looked like my father.  Oh, I'm not looking forward to going through the house.  When my first husband died, he didn't really have anything except some clothes, which were donated.  I remember looking at the bedroom at times though, expecting him to walk out.  Death can do mind-tricks.  I actually like drinking the juice because it's a nice break from water.  I wonder if I can take the capsules besides drinking the juice?  Have you ever done that?  I'm glad you're with us here, Wendy.

Tendai, I can't imagine living where you do and being able to keep my sanity.  You're really tough, girlie. :)  I'm so glad you're a part of us here. 

Today I'm just going to try to relax.  I have to be at the funeral home tomorrow at 9:00.  Some people from my church (which I haven't been to in like two months) are supposed to go.  And I think a couple people from NA are planning on going; they called me and wanted to know where the funeral home was at. 

Other than that ladies, not much to report.  The congestion is going away.  I wish the bladder infection would ease up a bit already.  I hate going to the bathroom and feeling like I'm going to pass a watermelon and need to push it out.  The Pyridium helps with that some.  Has anyone ever tried that AZO?  I think that's supposed to help bladder pain, isn't it?  I only have one Pyridium left; I might have to contact my doctor and see if he'll give me another script.  OK, you wonderful ladies have a good day.  I'll check in later.

Good Morning Ladies
Queen- love the new title.
Betty- I'm sorry for your loss.
Drag- Congrats on your wedding.
Cheetara- Sorry to hear about your Aunt, I'll keep her in my prayers.
Neeta_ happy belated Birthday.( I live in Ga. too)
Cin- I hope all is well
Tendi- How's things going?

well if i missed anyone I'm sorry, I hope all is well with everyone, as for me I've been real busy with the girls softball, and not only had my 3 girls but 6 more teenage girls, my niece and her 2 babies and boyfriend, and my friend and another 9 year old at my house all weekend. CRAZY That's where it drove me Just CRAZY. way too many people at my house, it won't happen again. and with the tornado's coming through Atlanta, made everything worse.  I'm so glad everything is back to normal.  We had our egg hunt at Church yesterday.  The kids loved it.  Then to the ball park for the opening ceremony.  got three games today.  I'll only get to watch about 30 mins of each game to be able to see all 3 girls play. :P  I'll try to post scores later on today.

I wonder if I can take the capsules besides drinking the juice?  Have you ever done that? 

 Has anyone ever tried that AZO?  I think that's supposed to help bladder pain, isn't it?

You can pop those cran tablets anytime you want. I've had so many bladder problems I've done it hundreds of times. I take two or three at a time a few times a day when i have a probem. It clears things up for me within a couple of days.

I've tried AZO but its been a long time. I had better luck with the cran tabs.

Evening ladies-

This is just a short post.  Just was wondering how everyone is doing.  I'm alright, just frightfully congested.  Tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. is my dad's service.  Still overwhelming.  Anyway, I hope everyone is doing alright.

Betty- Cran tablets sound like they might work well for you.  I hope your chest congestion gets better and I will be thinking of you tomorrow.

Paulette- Thanks for the preview of what I will be doing when the trip  lets get older :)  Wow, 3 games in one day.  It makes me tired just thinking about it.

Win- Sounds like you and Billy had a fun time the other day.  That must have been nice to get out and do something different.

Ten- OK, what is a nappy?  I hope your sister and her baby get well soon.  That must have been a really strange phone call.  Sounds like you and me pick out the same rotten apples  ;D

My Mom suprised me this morning by showing up at 7:30 in the morning.  She helped me take the kids to school and then we came home and loaded up my car with laundry to take to the laundry mat.  We filled up 5 of the triple loaders so we were there for awhile.  I have a washer and dryer here but I can only do 2 loads a day cuz I have a septic tank  :(  We went to the Goodwill and got me some spoons. The kids must throw them away and I don't catch it because she had bought me a pack of 20 or 30 at Sams club and I only had a few left.  By 4 o clock I was so exhausted and my feet hurt so bad, I just wanted to go to bed for the night but I had to cook dinner and get the kids to bed.  I guess, I did pretty good, its 8:30 and only my oldest and my night owl(my daughter) are still up. Hopefully, I can take the dogs out and then go to bed early.

LOL. I woke up in the middle of the night last night calling "Jeromy" and wondering if he was OK, thinking he was pregnant.  I don't know any Jeromys, I think there might be one on this forum but I am pretty sure he isn't pregnant.  BUT, it got my SO all bothered, who is that, blah, blah, blah.  I just went back to sleep, I was all messed up though.

Hope everyone has a good night.

Hello all! Just checking in, too tired to say much.

Betty: I am sorry about your dad. Deal with it however you feel is right and don't let anyone tell you different. When my brother died tragically everyone told me I was so strong and that I needed to be strong for my mom. Well that was the role I assumed and just stuffed everything in. Not good.

My overnight field trip went well. The kids all had a good time. One little girl had to go home early. She said she was sick but I think it was more homesick. I have spring break next week and all I want to do is sleep. This trip really wiped me out.

I'll talk to you all soon.

Hi Girls

Happy St. Pattys Day.  Nothing really new to report.  Went out tonight, but it turned out to be rather boring.  I took my roommate with me and we left and were home by 830.  I am sure that I would have stayed longer, but I could sense that he was not having the best time, since he has only met my group of friends once.  Not to mention that he has never drank a drop of alcohol. and not one to hang out in bars.  So since he was my DD I decided that it would be best to leave so that he would not be so board.  We had fun together as a whole but the atmosphere is not his scene.  We spent the whole day shopping, then went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and then we came home and got ready to go out.

Betty my thoughts are with you tomorrow.

I hope everyone had a decent St. Patrick's Day. I would've checked in earlier but I really wanted to get the braids out, wash and perm my hair. I just finished right before 2am but my head feels so much better. Other than that I really didn't do much. My son stopped over to visit which has become routine. We chat and he usually burns a cd.

Today was the first day that the little ankle biter was actually quiet while his Daddy was at work. I think the little guy is starting to calm down a bit and I think we may actually have gotten him on a potty schedule or at least alert us when he has to go instead of just going.

That is about it for me. I am mad tired. Betty, I will be thinking of you tomorrow.

Morning ladies, I only have a couple minutes.  I'm not feeling well at all this morning-throwing up, diarrhea, congestion, still the bladder infection.  What's one to do.  Like I say I guess-suck it up and go on.  I preach that, so I might as well live it. 

The visitation for my dad's service is at 9:30, we have to meet there at 9:00.  Then the service is at 10:30.  My sister called me yesterday and found my dad's favorite song to play-"My Way" by Frank Sinatra.  That'll be good.  I don't know how I'll feel afterwards, it's just one thing at a time.

Snow, I do not know how you do it.  I would be exhausted all the time.  Does your mum ever babysit for you? 

St. Patrick's day really means nothing to me. I'm not Catholic.  I just remember when I was a kid, my mum used to make corned beef and cabbage.  I could go for some of that right now though.  Anyway, you ladies have a nice day-

Hie Ladies -
(this better work its the second time typing this!)

Betty - get welll soon ok? i can imagine how u're feeling. i hope u have a good service for your dad.

Snow- that was nice of your mom to come over and help with the kids and all.  U know when i put the phone down after talking to the police i was like "yes i really know how to pick them." if somoeone could make a cure for making bad choices theyd be so rich! And that dream of yours was weird. wonder what it means. i never pay any attention to my dreams, if i even remember them. full of nonsense really.

Wendy - tell Billy he's lucky im  continents away otherwise he'd never get rid of me by the pool.

Sun - u holding out on us? whats happening with Whitey? or did i miss something in  another thread?

Viv- u go and get some rest. i dont know how u manage it with kids all day. i know i'd go crazy in a day.

i woke up with diarrhoea and there was no water! Crappy place i live has the toilet outside and we share it with just about anyone who feels like using it.  Feel like i'd rather to use my entire salary just for rent as long as i can have a place i can enjoy living in. i had a phone call from my ex who i think infected me. he's in the UK now and said i should open a bank account so he can send me money for easter. Ha! i will open it and see what he does. if he does send the money i'll use it to pay for a better place to stay in. He might turn out to be useful after all.
i heard my landlord is so sick now. he's in denial about his condition and goes around coughing and feverish etc. heard he;s now at some clinic receiving daily injections for a month and treatment for TB. The wife is on ARVs and he absolutely refuses to go with her where they get them for free. I'd like to feel sorry for him but hes such a mean nasty man to his stepmother wanting to kick her out the house or trying to make her live in one room of a 5 bedroomed house with her neice. they had to get a peace order. i dont know why he;s so horrible to her; and his wife if she were clever she'd get close to the stepmom coz if that guy dies she very well might get kicked out of the house then what? instead she's the one who encourages the husband in his madness, silly woman.

damn i have to go. some patients want to make payments. they got armfuls of cash and its going to be a bitch counting it. stupid reserve bank governor should just make a $1 billion note and save us a lot of energy.

i'll catch u later ladies

Nothing much exciting happening today. I go to the doctor tomorrow to have my labs drown to see how the Atripla is working.


Betty- I hope you fell better, and I pray you stay strong

Snow- Thats was super sweet of your mom. I wish mom would come get my 19 month old at least for an hour. I hated going to the washer. I lived in an apt, but now i live in an house. with a laundry room. YAAAA

Afternoon Ladies----

Really nothing much going on here either. It seems to be a pretty decent day out, I think it's in the 40's but it's windy as hell. I finally got my hair finished. I'll probably use the flat iron on it a bit and that's it for today. A bit of good news, the car is finally going to get towed to the mechanic tomorrow so hopefully later on this week I'll know how much it will cost to get it running. Things are looking up.

 I had an appointment with Section 8 last week. I had forgotten a couple of documents but the lady had said it would be a few months before I would get the reminder letter to turn them in. It seems they sent a the reminder letter already but it went to my bff addy. I don't know why that is because I gave them my current addy. I think once they receive the information they need then I will have to go to some type of class to receive the section 8 check or something. My sister was trying to explain that to me once before.

I guess that is about it for me. Betty, I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Just try to make it through it all. I'll check in later....

I just woke up again.

I felt like total crap yesterday. I puked a couple of times yesterday morning but I went to work any way. I stayed an hour and drove home. I had gotten all the important things done. Had to pull over into a parking lot on the way home and puke out the door of my car again. I got to lay down for an hour and had to take my son to work.
Toward noon I started feeling a little better and was able to eat and hold it down.

I woke up today not feeling well. I have a fever blister starting on my upper lip and diarrhea too. I went to work anyway and stayed an hour doing only the things necessary. Went home took an hour nap and took my son to work.
Had to go across town to the Sam's club to pick up some insulin for work so I did that. Its raining buckets of water when i got out of the store. Got soaked to the bone. Went home, put the insulin in the fridge and went to bed. I stayed in there sleeping till 3:00 and decided I havent eaten anything today so I should get up and eat even though I am not hungry.
I had a bowl of cereal. Its still raining. We are under a flash flood warning but my pool isn't all the way full so the water if we where to get flooded has somewhere to go. LOL

I'm tired but I feel a little better than earlier. I've already taken 3 Valltrex for the cold sore. I hate them. They are uncomfortable, ugly and they keep me from using my mouth for kisses and other entertaining things. 

Wendy

Modified because for some reason the word Valtrex dissapeared when I posted it the first time.

Afternoon/evening ladies:

I'm home now.  I feel better physically.  I'm sure it was just a case of the 'nerves.'  The service was lovely.  The military did a color guard at the end.(my dad was a WWII vet).  Then we went to my oldest sister's house.  My sister that came from Phoenix turned me onto a new cigarette.  They're cloves, but they're really smooth.  The brand name is Djarum.  Well, on the way home I went to the tobacco store and asked the clerk if they had them.  He said 'yeah, we got 'em.  I've never had them, I just know they're expensive because they're imported.'  Well, they cost $7.20 a pack!(!)  I said 'oh well, that's what regular cigarettes will be up to before long.'  They're in different flavors, I like cherry.  So, anyway, all I have left today is school in a couple hours.  I really don't want to go, but I gotta.  Anyway,

Tendai-your old bf doesn't want you to give him your routing numbers does he?!  I can just see him cleaning out your account.  There are only about 3 people in the world I would give my routing numbers to- my power-of-attorney and my two sisters.  I would never give them to anyone else.  That's where my level of trust is.

Keeping, good to hear from you.  Wish you'd drop in more often.

Queen, that's great news about the car.  So hopefully you'll be mobile again soon.  That's a good feeling.

Nothing else to report, ladies.  Take care, I might check in tonight, not sure yet.

Edited: Wendy, you must have posted at the same time I did.  Girl, I hope you feel better soon.  You said you took 3 for the cold sore, but didn't say 3 of what.  I have a nasty one on my left upper lip right now and I just have my doctor call me in Zovirax anytime I get one.  That's the only thing that works for me.  Now get better damn it!

Winiroo--- Sorry you don't feel good, girlie. That has to suck, I don't know what I hate more, headaches or hurling. I get migranes not the little headaches and I literally have to go lay down. Hurling on the other hand, well, it comes up and I usually feel better after a nap. Btw, I hope you have fun on the campout with Humm and Comp.... ;) I have been dying to go to one of those but it's never financially possible for me.

Betty-- Glad you are feeling better in regards to the funeral. Now if the rest of you would just catch up..*LOL* It probably will now that things are settling down a bit.

Tendai--- Damn girl, is this the same one who keeps giving you excuses about taking you to his apartment? I wouldn't trust putting that money in your account either. I get the suspicion that he is doing something foul and wanting to use your account to hide the money saying you can spend some of it or whatever. It just doesn't sound right to me. Get some more info on that.

Let the drama begin, sort of...Roomie #2's ex keeps calling Roomie #1's cell trying to get her to put the other roomie on the phone. I knew it was coming after he kept calling the landline over the weekend. He's trying to make excuses so he can talk to my roomie. I peep the game. More details will be in the blog later....I'll check back in a few ticks....

hi ladies,

Betty, sounds like a moving, respectable ceremony. kudos to you and your siblings for putting it together so quickly. I am really touched by how upright you are in handling all this. More power to you. Hope those tabs start working. Did that doctor even diagnose you? Is there a followup scheduled?

Tendai, conditions in Zim are horrendous and every time I read about it I am speechless. Just praying for the upcoming elections for you guys. I can't beleive I cancelled the course b/c I didn't want to share a toilet in the hotel with 1-2 other rooms for 9 nights. Talk about perspective. I feel like beating myself on the top of the head now. I understand the ex with the bank is neither the one wanted by the police nor the last one, but the guy who infected you & moved to the UK. Strange, but maybe you can ask him, by email or something. I don't see how he can clean you out if you open a new account just to let him send money. But please be cautious.

Wendy, hope you're feeling better. you're quite the bulldozer, poor thing getting soaked on top of it all.

Keeping, nice to see you around. Good luck with the labs.

Viv, I know, I get tired so easily. On a bus full of kids, I think I'd pass out. Now you can rest though and be proud of yourself.

Snow, you mentioned the bike, actually I ride it in any weather, snow, wind or hail, simply b/c everyone does (it's the #1 form of transport here and I didn't even know to ride before I came) and secondly b/c I can't afford a car nor am I allowed to drive here. everything is less than 20 min by bike anyway, but I dont have a European license so once I became a Dutch resident I needed to get their license, and I can't be bothered financially or otherwise. You can be sure though that no matter how crap the weather there'll be plenty of others cycling, so at least I don't feel alone... or lie a wierdo for that matter.
I still have really really wierd and vivid dreams even though I stopped Sustiva 6 months ago or more. I think it did something psychedelic to my brain. It's entertaining though.

Cindy, thanks for the support, I knew you'd get it... Happiness is a loaded gun as Lennon said, though I am not sure what he meant actually, but it sounds fitting. Like, you're just being very cautious around it.

Sun sounds like you & roomie are getting along... speaking of roomies I'll update myself on Queens blog now.

Cheetara very sorry bout your aunt; but happy about the baby. Sums it all up doesn't it, without the new life wouldn't be bearable really, kind of an answer to all the thoughts of why bring kids into the world. For the cycle I guess. Hope your aunt gets treated and gets better.

Im watching Devil Wears Prada, ive seen it before but its entertaining. I have no memory anyway, the weed took care of that. I can watch the same movie 5 times in one year with a vague recollection of it.

Cristy, Wishful, Netta, and anyone I may have temporarily forgotten, wishing us all a peaceful afternoon/night...

Hi Girls

Well, I had a great day till I got home and checked my email.  I went to the dress maker to have some of my summer pants taken in since they are to big.  Ran to the grocery store and had my monthly massage.  Then I got home and checked my email to find my test results from my doctor.  I went for my annual two weeks ago and she tested for HPV.  I have been tested before and have had HPV then last year it cleared up and I had a normal pap smear.  So I get these test results on-line, but cannot tell if I still have it.  So I guess that means if I do have it then my pap will come back abnormal.  I put a call into the doctor and waiting for a phone call back.  I have dealt with chronic baterial infections and know that can cause abnormal paps, but I was hope since I am on Atripla and my CD4's are up and I am undetectable that this would be a thing of the past.  So now I guess I get to play the waiting game.


Queen-  Your hair sounds great.  I know that you took all of the braids out but I have always loved that look.  My doctor had half of her braids undone when I went in for my appointment.  Well, If we ever meet maybe you can give me a braid or two.  I just love that look.  

Betty- I am glad that things went as well as could be expected.  I am sure that it could not have been an easy day.  Still thinking of you and your are in my prayers.

Winn- I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well.  I hate cold sores.  I have not had one in a long time but if I felt one coming on I would take large doses of Lysine which you can get at any store.  Have you tried that?  Stay dry and feel better.  

KeepingFaith-  Good luck with your labs.  I hope the Atripla works as good for you as it has for me.  I have not had many side effects, other than crazy weird dreams and sometimes its hard for me to sleep.  But its working so I will keep with it.  I have a few shifts of graveyards coming up and after those past then I will see about taking the Atripla in the morning, not sure if that will work or not.  I have heard that you can feel a little woozy.  Keep us posted on your labs.


Tendai- The whole Whitey situation is plugging along.  I did not see him this week which is find,  Its good for me to have my distance to see if I miss him or not.  We are planning on taking his son and my nephew on Monday to the zoo.  I have still not told him my status, but I figure Monday will only be our 4th date so I will see how things keep playing out, plus I have not open mouthed kissed him either.  I guess my fear has been that I did not want, because I did not want him to think that I put him at risk. Not sure when the right time is to tell him. We talk every day, but I am still not sure what to do.  I guess I will know when the time is right.  Plus this also gives him time to get to know me and since he is not being pushey about anything, other than wanting to see me, I guess there is no point in telling him just yet.  Maybe I should let him bring up the issues of wanting to be intimate and then go from there.  Please be careful about your ex and giving him any bank account information.  If he wants to send you money, let him send you a cashiers check.  Even opening a new bank account and not having any money in it he can still use that in ways and purchase things or bounce checks on the account and you could be held responsible.  So just be careful, I don't to see anything bad happen to you.  xoxo

Snow- I am glad that your mother came to help you with the laundry.  That must have been a relief to get it all done.  I had to laugh about your spoon story, I seem to have lost some spoons along the way.  I know that I will take them to work and if I leave them in sink and then I never see them again.  I think  the sink is like the dryer, its always eats my socks. hmmmmm something strange is a foot.

Vivyt-   Glad your over night field trip went well, but sorry it was so tiring.  But least is over.  Spring break must be approaching for you, so may you get plenty of time to relax.  

Drag-  Sorry I missed in the earlier posts that you got engaged.  Congrats.  Sounds like you and I our both excited about our relationships, but we are both being cautions.  I am glad that I do not have to worry about Whitey's family seeing my Tattoos since Whitey, has three.   Keep us posted.

Netta and Moon- Hope you ladies are doing well.  Looking forward to hearing from you soon.  Sorry if I missed anyone.

Win- I am sorry you are feeling bad, I hope you get better soon.  I used to not be able to tolerate anyone puking but since my daughter pukes everytime she gets a cold, I am used to it now.  I can't stand that feeling you get in your stomach.  I hope it is just a 24 hr bug and is gone tomorrow.  You were so nice to go and do what your guy needed, I don't think I would be able to do that. 

Sun- I hope the doc calls you back so you don't have to worry about your results.  I have had a problem with abnormal cells since my early 20's, I had so many biopsies I can't even count.  I went last month for my check up after 4 yrs and I was praying the women didn't ask for my history cuz there was no way I was remembering it all. Amazingly enough, my pap was normal this time around and I hope you hear the same. Glad things are going well with Whitey. Socks.  How I hate matching socks.  I got these things called sock cops that are supposed to keep your socks together when you wash...of course, in order for them to work you have to use them  :-\  Good idea though...the kids might get the hang of it in like the next 5 or 7 years.


Betty- I am glad you are feeling better and the service was so nice for your Dad.  I only smoke cigs when I am really, really, really, mad, next time I will have to try those they sound pretty good.

Viv- I am glad your field trip went well and everyone made it home safe and sound.  I hope you get to rest and relax next week.

Ten-  Was dude giving you money when he was around?  I doubt he will be making an effort to do it when he isn't.  Just be careful because he could use your information for something no-good.  Sounds like you need a finger condom to count all that money.  I used to use them for work and it makes going through a lot of paper much quicker.

Keep- I hope your labs go well tomorrow, too.  Keep us posted.  ;D

Queen- That would be nice if you could get section 8 but I don't know if you will be able to have your roomates.  I was working for a property management co around here last summer and the qualifications for an apt or house to qualify for sect. 8 is long.  I hope it is better down your way.

I took my friend to the doc and did some errands with her.  I tried to come home and take a nap before picking up the kids but my mind was going a mile a minute.  I think I was speed dreaming, you know those books that have the pics in the corner and you flick the pages really quick, that what my dreams were like.  Tonight was cheap movie night around here so we went to see Horton Hears Who, it was cute.  There is a kung-fu panda movie coming out with Jack Black that looks good.  The trip  lets got school pics a couple weeks ago and they came in today.  They are going to kindegarten next year so in some of them they were in caps and gown, I can get all the pics for $120.  :o   They were so cute though and they all smiled- which is a small miracle. I can get a gazillion pics at Walmart for 1/2 that., though. I am going to the support group, the therapist and then to vacuum a cute little 90+ old ladies house, she lives all by herself the poor thing tomorrow.  I hope everyone has a great day.
Take care,
Snow

Late evening ladies-

Queen, drama, drama, drama.  Hopefully that pesky person will stop calling.  I hate it when people call constantly bugging. 

Drag, I had to chuckle about the pot taking some of your memory away.  It used to do that to me also.  And I would imagine things that weren't really real.  Hey, the cycling.  Wow.  Something I couldn't do.

Sun, I hope your pap comes back normal. Got my fingers crossed for ya. :-*

Snow, if Queen were to get section 8, she wouldn't have to tell them about her roomies.   It sounds like you had a good time at the movies.  That's great.  Cherish that time when they're little. 

Well, my bladder still hurts when I pee.  But I'm giving it the duration of the antibiotic.  I'm now losing my voice, which I'm sure will thrill some people.  I went to school tonight.  It gives me something to do.  Either Friday or Saturday I'm going to go help my sibs start cleaning out my parents'.  What a process that's going to be.  50+ years worth of stuff. 

Nothing else to report.  I hope all you ladies have a good evening.

Betty- Don't you love when you lose your voice and people look at funny and say "Is there something wrong with your voice?"  That cracks me up everytime "Duh, did I sound like this last time you talked to me?"  I do cherish the moments but I have to tell you I am getting very tired of checking out the poop in the toilet.  I am very happy and proud that everyone is doing thier duty there, but I have seen enough shit in the last few months to last me a lifetime.  :)  Now that I think about it, it is probably good that I look, cuz I always ask if they wipe and they ALWAYS say "Yes" and some how there is never any TP in the toilet. Ever.  :-\

Netta- Thank you.  God did bless me. I have a 9 yr old boy and 4 yr old BGB trip  lets.  I always type it like that in case someone does a search, just in case :)
I hope you are feeling better.  I like to shower in the morning to help wake me up but I hate to blow dry my hair cuz it takes forever.  I usually do a half-ass job and end up with some frozen hair if  I spend too much time outside.

If it wasn't so late, I would go out and buy a lottlery ticket, I got itchy palms, someone told me that was supposed to be good luck, they obviously didn't have itchy palms.

Good night :)

Evening Ladies----

Netta, I always said I would like to go to locs one day. I usually keep my hair in braids because I hate doing my hair because it is so fine or thin depending on how you look at it, I guess. It doesn't like to hold a curl. I don't want to have it cut because I am trying to grow it long that's why I am always sporting braids. At the moment it is a little bit past my shoulders but I know I need my ends clipped. I just don't trust anyone to do it. I am also looking for a new look but something that will continue to make my hair grow. What is your experience with section 8 because it is new to me.

Betty- No, I did not tell section 8 about my roomies. I am kind of playing things by ear but I know section 8 would never approve me for a whole house. If we can find a whole house soon then I wouldn't need section 8 but it took them over 5 years to get to me, that is how long the list is. The pesky person called the bff at work. To me, it is him being slick but he told bff that he has cancer and this is suppose to be from them sticking a tube down his throat. Roomie #1 says they wouldn't be able to tell that from the scope going down his throat so I am not sure what to believe but wouldn't at all be surprised if he was lying.

The car is getting towed to the mechanic tomorrow. Woooo Hoooooo!!!! Hopefully soon, I will be mobile again. Other than that, nothing else to really report. I hope you feel better Betty, Sun, Snow and Netta. Have a good night everyone..

Good morning all

Wendy - hope u're all better now.  this diarhea bug's been busy everywhere.
Queen - good news bout your car. its so convenient having your own car. u can go anywhere u want anytime.
Keeping - good luck with the labs!
Drag - i'll be careful promise. hows your arm doing these days?  any news yet on your BFs interview?
the guy who wants to send me money is the one i think infected me and went to the UK. He has sent me some money before -  long ago at the beginning of last year then stopped.  i dont know why he's wanting to start again. Me im thinking he owes me. We have so many families with so many people out in the diaspora that receiving money from abroad isnt something new now. cashiers cheques dont work unless its above $50 and then the bank will take 3% off plus $300million from what u've been sent. and so far thats only one bank that will do that. all the others wont because of the forex shortage.  most of the forex is in people's houses!  its quite a process actually receiving money from abroad if u dont have a forex account. i dont know we'll just wait and see if he does actually send it. the way things are right now i definately could use some extra cash. and no, he wont be able to access my account once he sends money

Seems like i jinxed my landlord when i mentioned him here. He died yesterday morning. Apparently it was too little to late. Got home and there was people cooking by the fire. Its a very quiet funeral so far.  Ordinarily there would be a whole crowd of people and they be singing and dancing and beating drums and all. Have to apply to the cops that there'l be noise.  This one is very quiet. not a peep from anyone. maybe it'll pick up later. shit then everyone will be using our toilet! >:(

have a great day all you guys i'll catch u later :-*

Good morning ladies:

Right now I'm blaring one of my favorite songs-'Tumbling Dice' by the Rolling Stones.  It's amazing what a good song will do for a person.  Anyway......

Netta, I hope the HRT kicks in for you soon.  I was on it before (Estrogen, Progesterone).  Now I'm on the Depo shot.  It's amazing what we woman go through isn't it.

Snow, what's the lottery up to there?  They have powerball here (and I believe in 4 other states).  Last weekend, it was $275 million.  I never buy lottery tickets, but I should-someone's got to win, right?

Queen, I've been on section 8 for the last few years.  I know it takes a long time to get on. But they've been a god-send to me.  I couldn't make it otherwise.  They would only approve you for a 1 br, but I'm sure you already know that (at least that's the way they do it here).  Good luck on that car.

My pee'er still hurts.  I wonder how long it's going to take before it stops.  I need to do laundry today and get some milk.  Notice I said I need to do these things, not I'm gonna do them.  I'm still pretty tired and might just hang low.  The weather is gloomy anyway.  Friday starts the cleaning out of my parents' house.  I'm getting my dad's police radio.  He used to listen to that all the time to find out what was happening to whom.  Anyway ladies, I'll check back in later.

Edited to add: Tendai, girl, I don't know how you do it.  You are one strong woman.

My fellow TBs, I am back.  Life took a turn on the fast and crazy track but I think it's slowing to a managable speed. The kids' birthday party went well last Saturday.  The rain held off so the kids were able to play outside and ride bikes, play kickball, and run off a ton of energy.  We played a couple of games inside, ate, finished up their shirts, ate, opened gifts, ate, and everyone went home.  By the end of the day, I was exhausted!

#6's birthday was Monday - St. Patty's Day.  She's officially 4.  #5 will be 5 on the 29th, but since we already had his party, we just let him be 5 early.  Although, the little booger thinks that he turned 5 on Saturday and on the 29th, he gets to turn 6.

Snow, I feel your pain with the laundry.  Just got finished matching 60 pairs of socks.  I can't wait until it's warm enough for sandals. I have another load in the washer, one in the dryer, and one more to do.  I'm gonna start a nudist colony that only eats on paper plates with plastic spoons.  No laundry.  No dishes.  What could be better?

Betty, how are you doing, hun?  I've been thinking about you since I read that your father died.

Queen, has the poor dog settled down any?  It's got to be frusterating for you.

Well, I think we're taking the kids to see "Horton" today.  Earliest show time is 2pm.  I should probably start thinking about getting them bathed and dressed.  It's nearly 10.

Everyone have a great Wed.

Mum

It's a dreary day in my quaint little hood. It's been raining since yesterday. It beats the snow so I am not complaining. I am excited that the car is going to the mechanic today so hopefully by next check day, I will be mobile. Then y'all really going to say "Where Queen at?"...*LOL*.. And the car is a 4 cylinder, what a save on gas that will be. It'll just be nice to not have to depend on people for rides or constantly rescheduling things.

Mum-- Glad to hear things got back on track for you. I was missing me some Mum. Let me know how the Horton movie is, post it in my movies thread in OT. I want to see it, I love Dr. Seuss movies. Is Jim Carrey in this one too? The dog has settled a bit but the little ankle biter is crapping in the house even after we take him out. It is frustrating the hell out of me. I don't want my house stinking.... :(

Tendai--- It's probably quiet for the landlord's funeral because it sounds like no one liked the man so who would want to celebrate? Maybe this man is sending you money because he feels bad that he has infected you? I can understand you needing the money though so do YOU.

Betty-- Actually, I would get approved for a 2 bedroom but if we decide to get a house, I won't need the section 8, the breakdown between the 3 of us should cover things nicely. The section 8 list here has been suspended for the time being and it took them over 5 years to get to me now. I had actually given up on it completely so it really surprised me to hear from them. The letter went to my bff(girl) house cause that's the last addy they had for me. I have to mail in some paperwork and work on getting a previous electric bill taken care of though. The lady at section 8 said it would probably take them 2 months to get back to me so hopefully I can have it paid off by then. Btw, did you get yahoo messenger yet?

It seems that the new roomie's ex found a way to get a hold of him by calling him at work. The new roomie has made his boss aware of the break up so hopefully he won't lose his job with the ex calling him there. He called him and told him that he has cancer. Can you find this out by sticking a scope down one's throat? I don't mean to sound cold but I don't know whether to believe the ex or not because he is so manipulative and could be saying he has cancer to make the new roomie come back to him. It's really sad at times but then I remember how the ex is.

Have a good day ladies...

It's good to be back, Queen, thx.  We decided not to take the kids to see the movie today.  It's pouring the rain and I didn't feel like dragging them in and out of the rain.  They manage to stay dry and I end up getting soaked.  We'll take them next week.  Depending on the type of cancer, you can tell from a endoscopy - like throat cancer, cancer of the larynx, voice box, ect.  Correction, you can tell if there are "growths" or cysts with an endoscopy, but they would have to be biopsied to know for sure if it was cancer and if it was malignant or not.

Life hasnt' calmed down much, I'm just learning to live with it, it's not going to change any time soon, so why stress.  I'm in the process of finding a new doc for #3 and #6.  We have until June 3rd to find one, or we'll have to wait until after that.  She's been with us for a while, but I've flat out had enough.  I don't need the hassle.  It's a long drawn out issue, and i don't want to bore anybody. 

Tomorrow is the 1st day of Spring and we have a chance for snow.  I've decided we're living in the next ice age.  I did wake up this morning to birds singing - then I opened my eyes to the gray dreariness of the day.  I NEED SUN! (and a vacation..and a shower..and a maid..and the winning lottery ticket..and a new house..and, and, and)

Hope everyone is having the most wonderful of Wednesdays.  I've missed you all...really.

Hugs and Moochies! :-*

Still feeling like crap. My upper lip is a wreck, my lower lip was beginning to get a sore but I don't think it will erupt with all the Valtrex I'm taking. Still have diarrhea.
I've been able to work for an hour a day and manage to take my son to work still. Billy was able to pick him up from work yesterday so I was able to stay home and lay down.

I'm trying to take it easy. With as low as my tcells are it will likely take a while for me to feel better.
I've been doing this for 15 years I'm used to it. Dont worry. I'll be fine.

Afternoon ladies,

It sounds like it's grey everywhere.  What's up with that?  I'm like you mum, I need sun, sun and more sun (and warmth).  By the way, welcome back mum.  I've really missed your posts.  I understand things get hectic with all those kids.  I'm glad you're back with us.

Queen, section 8 can be a pain in the ass to deal with.  But then again, so is any government agency.  It seems like they never remember what they just did, and expect you to fix it.(I don't know if that makes any sense).  I'm so glad about your car.  A 4-cylinder is a nice thing to have nowadays.  My car is an 8-cylinder, and I just hate how much I have to pay to fill it just a little bit. 

Wendy, what are your t-cells?  Don't let yourself get too run down.  I don't want to hear any news of you being in the hospital or the like.  Please, please, take care of yourself.  Even though we've been dealing with this a long time, during that time, our bodies might get a little weaker and might need a little more help. 

I did do the laundry.  I had so much of it, and I'm so glad to get it done.  I went and got some milk and some gas.  My gas was on 1/4 tank, I put $20 in it and it only filled it up to the 1/2 way mark.  But gas is $3.19, down from $3.38, so I won't complain (like hell). 

I was going to go to the video store today to see if they have a copy of 'No Country for Old Men' in, but I just hate to think of going back outside.  I must be somewhat thin-blooded, as I really cannot stand the cold.  Anyway ladies, you all take care of yourselves.  I don't want to have to kick any ass. :)  Later-

They have been as low as 3 tcells but right now I'm at 120 and undetectable.

I aint going anywhere. I'm too stubborn.

Wooo Hoo, the car is now officially at the mechanics. He is charging 30 bucks to figure out what is wrong with it. Roomie #2 got it added to his insurance so it is covered. Now I just have to get the title changed next check day and wait and see how much mechanic is going to charge for inspection and whatever the problem is. I hope I can afford to get it all done next month.

Other than that, there really isn't anything new to report. My oldest sister's bday is next week so I have to go get her a card. She had gotten me one for my birthday and if I don't send her one, I will never hear the end of it. I'll check back in later..

AFTERNOON LADIES,,


NOTHING SPECIAL TO REPORT FROM MISSISSIPPI. THE WEATHER IS (BLAH) ITS RAINING AND THE WEATHER HAS TURNED COLD ONCE AGAIN. I'M CRAMPPING VERY BADLY  >:( I WENT TO THE DOCTOR TODAY. THEY DID NOT DRAW BLOOD BECAUSE I HAVENT BEEN ON THE MEDS ONLY FOR 3 WEEKS. DO I HAVE TO GO BACK NEXT WEEK. I HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING A GREAT DAY.

WIN- I HOPE YOU START FEELING BETTER REAL SOON.

QUEEN- GREAT NEWS ABOUT THE CAR. I WOULD BE SO LOST WITHOUT MINES. I HAVE A TAHOE AND A CAR. THAT WAY IF ONE FAIL THE OTHER ONE SHOULD CARRY ME ON...

MINISMOM- GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU, YOU ARE A STRONG WOMAN. I HAVE 2 CHILDREN AND THEY SOMETIMES RUN ME NUTS.

Evening ladies-

Wendy, you just take care of yourself girlie.  I hope you know when it's time to go see your doctor.  I didn't realize your t's were so low.  Damn.

Queen, you must be excited.  It's not long until check day either. 

Keeping, good to hear from you, though I'm sorry to hear you're having cramps. 

I really did nothing exciting today.  I guess my sisters are going to take my mum's urn to the funeral home tomorrow and they are going to combine my mum's and dad's ashes.  Then, they're putting it into this one urn that floats and goes down to the bottom of (wherever).  We're going to put it on the St. Joe River, which eventually empties into Lake Michigan.  Friday.  And Friday will probably be the last time I'm at my parents'.  Well, that will seem strange. 

I wonder if Medicare pays for chiropracters.  My neck keeps popping and I think it needs a good crack.  I swore them (chiros) off years ago after one went to crack my back and I had a sharp pain that went from my ankle to my neck.  But maybe it's time to go see one. 

Nothing else really to report.  Have a good evening ladies-

No worries, I've had an AIDS diagnosis since 1994. I know my limitations and do pretty well with making sure I get to the docs when its serious.
This is just a typical bump in the road sickness. It will pass.

Queen- We are going to have to hook you up with some fuzzy dice.  That will be so nice to have a car on the road again, just in time for summer too.  Maybe you can see if you can find a support group or something in your area.

Betty- Chiropractors freak me out.  That is the wierdest feeling to have them pop this and crack that.  I hope you feel better soon.  You guys got your parents place cleaned out quick.

Win- I hope you get better soon too, you know your limits, but please put yourself first.  I like your new pic- you are very photogenic :)

Keep- Chocolate...keeps the cramps away.  ;) It's raining here too, doesn't it just do wonders for your mood...NOT!

Mum- Nice to see you back.  I hear you on the vacation and all of that, it has been like 15 yrs since I actually went anywhere on a vacation and I'm thinking it will be another 10 till it's actually possible.

  If you guys hear of someone winning powerball and not claiming, my mother has the ticket.....or had the ticket.  My father bought her one when he was NH or CT and she put it on the stove and promptly set it on fire.  She already had one major fire and it actually wasn't her fault.  I feel like her mother.  MOM...you have to stop putting things on your stove.  My turn to say....Calgon take me away! 

If you guys could seen the conversation I had about the kids today.  One of the guys from group brought me to the food bank and they ask you how many kids you have which is fine except this guy spoke Spanish and I don't. 
How many kids do you have?
4
What are thier ages?
9 and  trip  lets that are 4
You have 2 kids
No, I have 4.
a 9 yr old and (3) 4 yrs olds ------as I am holding up 3 fingers
You have 3 kids?
Um...No, I have 4.
Then this whole thing is repeated when he asks for our health cards. I finally asked the people sitting waiting to eat, does anyone know how to say trip  lets in spanish? cuz we are all laughing at this point....it turns out it is just triple or trip-lay. He finally believed me after seeing all the health cards I had.   :)
After all that fun, I went to see the therapist and she thinks I need to go to Al-anon or kind of group like that for co-dependency.  After coming home and reading a little on it, I think she is right.  Now I just have to find one :)
Not much else going on here. I hope everyone is doing well tonight.
Take care,
Snow



Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.
