Ok, I stopped posting the history because some where the Roman numerals went off. I know I am buzzed but not that buzzed. I still have have not finished my hair but I am determined to get it done today. Plus last night I was a bit too high, I must admit......

Well, ladies, I have to say that Kevin has now graduated to stalker. He came over last night and rang the bell, banged on the door and was throwing shit at my window. The roomie went down and answered the door, told him I had company(which was gay friend) and this fool was still begging to see me. After he left here he drove past my other friend's house, she saw his car after I told her about him being here. You would think he would get the hint by now...Geez

Betty, Well I am glad someone is getting laid. Cindy is too so that's two that we know about and I can assume Mum gets hers in when the kids is sleeping...lol...Guess I better buy some batteries again.

Viv-- Sorry to hear about your doctor. Definitely find a new one. It took me awhile before I found mine and I love him. He's gay and I get hugs at every appointment.

I need to run. I have to finish my hair. I will check back later hopefully.

Queen - Uuughh stalker. I know he is a bit psycho but lets hope he doesn't go overboard. You got a baseball bat or a gun?

Betty - I guess that means I'm nuts. LOL The color was supposed to be dark ash blonde. My hair never turns the color its supposed to but each and every time I think "ok maybe this time I'll get lucky and I'll get the hair color I want." I've been coloring my hair for 20 years now and it happens every time.  :P

Queen, its time for Kevin to lose a NUT.  Stalker = Leg-Humper in my book.  Damn him!

Mum!!!!!!!!!!  I'm sooooooooooo glad the Vick's worked!  On the feet, who woulda thunk?  My massage therapist is the one who told me about the remedy last fall.  Wait until I tell her of your good news!

Going to watch hockey with Iceman, we had dessert before dinner tonight.  ;)   :P

I'll try and get the links on here.....

Morning ladies:

Queen, please be careful with Kevin.  My bff had a stalker and he ended up being put in jail eventually because of all his extreme shit.  And my sister's (Phoenix sister) ex stalked her and he ended up on felony probation.  You never know how far some of these people will take it.  I know you have weapons there, but please, please be careful.  Oh, I have a vibrator also, btw.

Cin, I hope you got to Iceman's and got some TLC.  How's the new diabetes route going anyway?

Mum, glad to hear the Vicks is working.  Hopefully you'll be back to new pretty soon.

I really have nothing on the agenda today.  My friend is leaving sometime.  I do have homework to read that I seem to put off until the last minute.  I actually cooked yesterday.  I was quite pleased with myself.  It was homemade spanish rice and it was good.  Ok ladies, be good, take care of yourselves and I'll check back in later.

Hello ladies.  Lazy sunday morning here. I am off work for 2 whole days.Whatever shall I do      Actually I can think of quite a few things that need doing but I don't wanna. My highlander books are calling my name. Diana Gabaladon is a really great author.                     Queen, watch out for Kevin. Sounds like he is missing a few gears and it would be a shame if you had to defend yourself or your home cause he is being a idiot.                                                                            Ml, have fun at Ice's house. I meant to tell you , congratulations on kicking ass on those big accounts.                                                   Betty, hope you had a great time this weekend with your guest. Homemade Spanish rice sounds really tasty.                                        MM, glad you are feeling better. Next time I am really sick, I will try Moonlight's Miracle Cure and hope it works for me                                  Win, definitely not ash blond but your hair is a very pretty color. I like it. I used to get that really bright red the Ferria has out. I loved it. Then I stopped dying my hair and now it is a nice mousy brown. But it has pretty highlights so....                                       Not much going today, waiting for the boys to go to church and then I will go outside and have a nice wake and bake. I thought about going with them but am not going.                            This lady floored me at work Wednesday by asking if she could pray for me. I had her pray for my oldest instead, that he will find some peace.             Okay, I will check in later. Hope everyone has a great day..  Cristy

Just one?

 ;D

Win, definitely not ash blond but your hair is a very pretty color. I like it. I used to get that really bright red the Ferria has out. I loved it. Then I stopped dying my hair and now it is a nice mousy brown.
My eyebrows are a dark ash blond or light mousy brown. Same difference. My roots are basically that same light mousy brown with white hair and red highlights.
If I dyed my hair red my god would it be red. My hair loves red. I just don't care for it much. My skin has a pink tone to it so I think the red looks wrong on me.
It was so much easier when my hair was naturally blond LOL

My brother has the same weird hair thing. Whats left of his hair on his head is a blond, brown mix. His body hair is dark brown and his facial hair is red.
My hair on my thighs is blond but below the knee it is real dark brown. Hair on my arms is blond but my pits are that real dark brown.

Good afternoon my sweeties!  It is such a lovely day here in WV with more of the same promised for next week.  We may even see some 70 degree temperatures.  YEAH!!!!!!!!!!  Even if you don't have a cold or a cough, I highly recommend the Vick's footie rub.  The callouses on my heels have NEVER been this smooth - not even with warm Vaseline.  I'm still coughing, still sneezing, and still not back to 100%, but goodness, i am doing better.

Nothing notable has happened today - it's been a very nice, lazy, Sunday.  After church, my parents took us out to lunch.  Free food and I didn't have to cook or clean up.  Hard to argue with that.  Tuesday, we are off to Pittsburgh, via IHOP, to visit the zoo.  Wednesday, we're taking the kids to see "Nim's Island".  Thursday, is Hubby's 41st birthday - complete with pineapple upsidedown cake, new running shoes, and a scent which is yet to be determined because I still can't smell. 

I hope everyone is having a great Sunday and may the lovliness carry us over until next weekend.  Love to you all!

It is good to see everyone so cheerful on this Sunday. I am still working on my hair but it will be finished later. Other than that, I am being quite lazy too. Thanks for posting the previous threads, Cindy. Did you notice the numbers being wrong too? Thanks for the concern about Kevin, I am not really worried about him. I told another friend(gay too) about the situation and he said next time Kevin shows up to call him. My friend doesn't look gay either and is bigger than Kevin. If he should show up, it is going to be funny as hell.

The weather here is sunny but the wind is making it cold. I think it 54 or somewhere in there. Tomorrow it is suppose to be 56. Hmm, when it breaks into the 60's I may put some shorts on. Good to see you posting again, Christy. Enjoy those days off. Now is the time to get the spring cleaning in, ladies. I know we all dread it but there's something each us has been putting off doing.

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow with my primary. I'm sure he is going to want to get a gazillion tests done since he hasn't seen me since September of last year. It is also time for me to get a new glucometer too. My roomie got a One Touch Ultra 2 that I like so I am going to see if I can get one too. It looks like it can do all these extra things that mine can't, like keep track of readings and compare them. Just call me a geek, I like things like that. I see Wini is too with the pic changes. I don't know how to do those things, I wish I could make my own gif images, any ideas Wini?

Hopefully I will be able to check back in later. Have a Happy Happy Sunday Everyone... ;)

Afternoon ladies,

Yes, Wendy, only one vibrator (hee).  For a few more weeks anyway.  Then I might wander down to the Pleasureland Museum.  There's one right down the street from me.  I don't really like going in there too much because of all the very strange old men that go in.  Oh, trust, they're beyond creepy.

Mum, I'm glad you got to go out to eat.  What day will you be going to the zoo? 

Queen, I don't care, Kevin just sounds very strange.  Just remember the advice you gave Wish about the pan of hot (was it) grits and calling the authorities.  Good luck at your doc's tomorrow.  Let us know how it goes.

Christy, you've got people praying for you, eh?  What did you do (kidding).  Enjoy your days off.  You deserve a break.

Nothing (I mean nothing) going on here.  My friend has gone home.  No more (natural occuring) orgasms for awhile. That's alright, I just feel lucky to get any.  I should study, but there's always tomorrow.  I just hate studying.  Only 3 more weeks and I'm off for the summer.  I might volunteer somewhere.  There's a few places here for pregnant teens that I might check out.  They have runaway shelters, but they're very much on the down-low, so I don't know if I would even be able to find out where they are.   Anyway ladies, have a great rest of the day.  If I don't check back in later (I'm exhausted) I'll be back tomorrow.

Betty, my darling, we'll be going to the zoo on Tuesday.  I'll be taking double doses of allergy meds that day.

Not a darned thing going on over here.  Hubby is watching the LSU women's basketball final 4 game.  The winner goes to the championship.  LSU is where we went to college - and met - AWWWWW!  Actually, we didnt' meet AT LSU, we met at a hotel just outside of LSU.  We went to an oriental halloween party - and neither of us is oriental. :P  We went with our perspective room mates.  Hubby's were from Viet Nam and my roomie was from Korea.  We met, fell in love, got mugged on our first date, and got married.  The rest, as they say, is history! ;D

Have a great evening!  Love to you all!

well, more like at the hotel ballroom.  There were over 250 people there.  Just goes to prove...you never know what can happen when you get dragged to a party where 248 people all speak the same language - and the 2 who don't wind up getting married. ;D

OK, i'll clarify.  Everyone seemed to understand what everyone else was saying except for me and Hubby.  Yep, we got mugged later that same night.  We went for coffee and a walk on the levy.  While on the levy, we were mugged, then chased.  We wound up going the wrong way down a one-way street.  But, we survived.  He stood me up on the next 3 or 4 dates.

 By the time we finally got together, i forgot what he looked like.  I figured the guy who followed me to the door must be him.  (I lived in a girls' dorm, so he had to call up to my room and let me know he was there).  At dinner, the waitress dropped a tray of food on our table.  At the movie,"Doc Hollywood", he lost a contact.  After the movie, I'm crawling around on the theartre floor, in white pants, searching for his contact.  Then, we went for coffee (chocolate milk for me) and beignets.  We were sitting there talking, when police walked in.  OK, no biggie - police in a doniut shop.  Until, the people sitting at the table behind us got up and started running.  Then, we were stormed by a ton of cops - it was a raid. So, we ordered more beignets and enjoyed the show.

5 months later we were engaged.  15mths after that, we got married.  It'll be 15yrs in June.  Go figure ;D

hello ladies,

I am back and took me ages to catch up on the thread. welcome Veritee. Nice to see someone from around my side of the pond, more or less. and Camms nice to see u posting.

Tendai, I have been reading the news, my heart is with you. you know where to find me.

Cristy I feel for you what you're going thru with your son. I hope you and your ex can support each other thru this at least.

looks like everyone else doing pretty OK what with the footrubs, natural orgasams, account acing, car cruising and more.

Wishful it looks like you're over that ****'s behavior and I can only admire how you sailed thru. yeah the quality of life is often the quality of our thoughts and you really put that to practice. oh yeah thx for checking up on Sunseeker, miss her here.

anyone else I may have skipped, HI THERE

I have a lot of catching up to do. Italy was great, I mean the food... the wather... the art... the people... the landscape... it was like a sweet little dream. and maybe b/c of that, I wasn't able to bring HIV into it and discolose to my friend, so i sneaked around with my meds and hated myself for it a little bit. The food was incredible, and strangely I don't think I gained any weight, I guess when the food is that awsome you savor it and don't eat as much. actually this belongs in the other thread.

catch you later, have a great day

Tendai,
I am watching your election theatre every day. It is outrageous how Mugabe behaves, he still doesn't want to give off his power.
I keep my fingers's cross for you and your country to get things changed over there.

Another question: I have heard that South Africa is the sole country that does virus load checks and that you can't get your VL checked in other African countries. Is that right? How do you get to know when it is time to start your medication?

GG: I think Mugabe wants to die in power coz of the human rights abuses and the killings he did. He knows people will be after his ass as soon as he's no longer president sio he wont go. and he has these die-hard people in his party who benefit from his rule and also have various crimes they committed so if theres a change of government their asses will be in shit too. amazing how evil and selfish people can be isnt it.  I'm starting to think it'll only take outright war to remove him. and i swear to God if there is one i'm joining the opposition's army. probly get myself killed but whats the difference, with living like this where u really cant make a plan for your future. and its so frustrating i could spit on Thabo Mbeki and the other stupid SADC leaders who're so afraid of this old man, what the fuck is his hold over them? if they could stand up and demand that election results be announced so we can move on and see if we're stuck with the old fart till he dies or if at last we can have a change and things get better for everyone. everyone except the dumbsh*t war vets and ZANU bigshots/Mugabe's wives who would be nothing if Mugabe was gone. i hope they realise that noone is immortal. sooner or later that evil man is going to die whether he likes it or not and lets see what they gonna do.  simba makoni might be starting his own party soon so yeah ZANU's days of doing whatever they like with us are numbered. its so frustrating just sitting and waiting and being able to do nothing about it. i can understand suicide bombers now.  they die for their beliefs and all. wish i could wrap myself in a bomb and go and give Mugabe a great big hug. i hope the court will decide to make the ZEC announce the results. How can ZANU demand a recount when the results havent even been announced yet? hopefully by end of day today we will know something. Its so infuriating! >:(

About the viral loads i dont know about other countries but in Zimbabwe we send to South Africa and pay in rands if we want viral loads done.  we go by CD4 counts alone to start treatment. if we go below 200 they start u on ARVs. Your pocket decides where u going to get them. U can either go to the gvt hospital and join a three month waiting list or buy from pharmarcies or if u know some people in NGOs who supply ARVs for free or very cheap.

Mum - never a dull moment with you guys is there? 15 years married and all. wow. hope your allergies clear up soon.

Christy - theres a lady who works next door to us. shes all flashy and smart etc married to a pilot and is always coming in our office changing forex etc. she scolded me quite severely on how i should not have cut my hair, that as the secretary i represent the image or whatever of the company and how i should always look my best and cutting hair is the absolutely last resort that shows that u got no more options. on and on she went. she was so "disappointed" like i had let secretaries all over the world down or something ::)

Morning ladies:

Mum, you tell the most amusing stories.   What an exciting first date!  When I met my first husband, he came staggering out of his house with an unlit cigarette and said 'miss, do you have a light?'  He was smashed (drunk).  I was walking home from downtown after getting high and really had no idea he was drunk (I was 16, he was 21).  Anyway, he tried to get in my pants, I didn't let him etc. etc.  Nothing exciting like people getting busted or anything happened though.  We never really went out on a date.  Our dates consisted of getting smashed and having lots of sex.  Of course, I broke up with him later, before I started stripping (which was when I was 17).  He heard through the grapevine that I was stripping.  Of course, he couldn't have that.  Oh well.  We all have stories we learn from.  Yours are just so interesting! 

Drag, welcome back.  I thought you had mentioned that you were going to be gone.  I'd love to see Italy.  No good stories? 

Tendai, I can only wish and hope the best for you.  I'm so disgusted at Mugabe.  I don't understand how we can run over to Iraq and everywhere else and try to help people in other countries, but it seems like we really shy away from anything in Africa.  I wonder if our government is being paid off somehow by the people in power over there.  I can't imagine what life is like for you.  You're such a strong woman.  Please, please let us know what happens.

Well ladies, I put a nicotine patch on last night, and no cigarettes since then.  Of course, it's early right now, but I don't even want to smoke.  I'm trying to get myself all psyched up about it.  I keep telling myself how much better I'll feel etc.  I do plan on exercising this morning.  I'm really going to try not to gain a bunch of weight during this initial not smoking phase.  I gained enough weight the last time I quit.   Since my mum died from lung cancer (from 2nd hand smoke) and my dad died from emphysema, I figure my chances are about slim and nil that I'll live any type of healthy life if I continue to smoke.  I'm also going to work on getting the smell out of my apartment/car today.  I couldn't stand the smell, even when I was smoking.  Now it's really going to be irritating.  And anyone who smokes is going to have to smoke outside. 

Other than that, there's homework to do, and a few groceries to get.  I'll be back later.  Have a safe one ladies (especially you mum).

Good morning ladies. It is going to be a very productive day, once I get up off my ass. Robert is out of school for a teacher work day so we will be going to walmart in a couple of hours                           

Christy, you've got people praying for you, eh?  What did you do (kidding).  Enjoy your days off.  You deserve a break.


    Betty, that was part of what floored me . I was making her and her husband some iced tea and she looked at me and just asked if she could pray for me.  I told her Thank You, I need all the help I can get and asked her to pray for my oldest son..                           Sorry your guest went home. The thing about volunteering sounds good. I think you are very easy to talk to so that would be perfect. Good luck with the patch.                            MM, wow, that's a great first date story. I noticed you didn't run from the cops. I like them except when I am doing something wrong.   Have a great time at the Zoo on Tuesday. I want to take Robert to the Zoo or the natural Science center soon.                           Tendai, that lady is a snotty judgemental bitch. How your hair is cut has no bearing on how well you preform at your job. I imagine you are quite a good secretary.             Every time I read about the system or government where you live, it makes me very grateful to live in the relative luxury the we do here.   Hope everything works out well.                                                         Dragonette, I hope Italy was loads of fun. My grandmother was Italian and I have always wanted to go to Italy.                     I am in contact with my oldest son's father but keep it to talk of the child only. I do appreciate him keeping us informed so I try really hard to be nice..            Queen, good luck with the doctor today. I hope you can get that meter you are wanting. I went last night and got some tasty green. I had to upgrade to the next level cause regular weed  just doesn't get me high anymore.        Glad you are not worried about Kevin. Call your friend if he shows up again.  Good luck with your hair.                    Win, your hair is very pretty. I had white blond hair when I was little. And it has darkened to it's current color. My eyebrows are black and so is the rest of my hair.   My dad's hair is like yours, I think . His beard comes in red and his hair is blond.        Well ladies, hope everyone has a great day.  Walmart, here we come, in about a hour...     Later. Cristy

Tendai, I hope that "lady" trips and falls into a sewage with her fancy do.

Don't really have stories from Italy except it was beautiful. I missed my BF. There was no sex, drugs or rock'n'roll or drama of any sort. Except when I came back I met on the plane this pretty young African girl who was escorted to the flight by two rough looking Italian women and was picked up at Amsterdam airport but this middle aged Dutch man. She looked really inoccent (I'm saying that even though she might be a prostitute, she had such an inoccent smile and behavior) and he was such a cold faced wanker. That kinda made me sad. Her & I waved & smiled at each other and he was just kind of staring me down with his fish eyes.

Otherwise, Italy was just very chilled and pretty like it is in the movies.

Cristy, I didnt know weed could be upgraded. I just remebered when I smoked, there was the normal weed and the skunk (charas) which was way stronger, but then it was reputed that some weed was sprayed or dipped in other stuff. That's why I always tried to go for homegrown. But it was opposite for me, instead of developing a tolerance for it, the more I smoked the more easily I was high until I couldnt really stand it...

Chrisy, it's good to have you back.  I'm hoping this trip is better than the last one.  It was such a disaster, I'm not sure I can adequately describe it.  We didn't run from the cops, because they weren't after us.  They were after the people sitting behind us.  The boogers ran passed us and nearly made me spill my chocolate milk.  Now THAT would've caused a problem..lol.  It gave us something to talk about on our second date.

And don't get me started about the wedding and honeymoon.  We nearly set the church on fire, got a boot put on the car, was attacked by monkies, chased by alligators, had an AK-47 pointed at us, wound up in 3rd world country traffic court, and got busted for trying to bribe an official. OH, then there was the odd peeping Pedro, the crazy old stalker, and the old lady with no teeth. Somewhere I remember vodka-laced ketchup at a hotel restaurant and a parrot that would steal the food off my plate.  And the adventures haven't stopped yet ;D

Today is one beautifuliciousical day.  We're gonna finish planting our seeds in peet pots.  We have 100 planted already and we're gonna plant at least another 100 today.  Not quite sure where we're gonna find enough containers to put them all in, but I'll figure something out.  I also need to weed around my tulips.  Poor things have been trying to grow for a month and we finally have some flower buds coming up.  This week is supposed to stay in the upper 60's to 71, but drop back into the 50's by Saturday.  I guess utopia can't last forever.  

#6 will be going to the doctor on Thurs to have her hearing rechecked. That's Hubby's birthday, but he said to go ahead and keep it since we couldn't get it any earlier and the next avaliable was in June.  She'll have her vision retested in May.  Poor wee little thing.

Nothing else going on today.  Dance class later tonight.  Betty, hun, congrats on quitting smoking.  It's not an easy thing to do.  Once again, I admire you. :-*  Have the best of days today and be well!

Hi everyone!
Hope everybody had a good weekend!  I went and got some Benedryl and it helped to clear up whatever was going on in my head but now I have my period.  Even though I felt like crap this weekend, I was in the mood for spring cleaning and cleaned out the trip  lets room and 1/2 of my bedroom on Saturday. The sun was shining and it was relatively warm here so the kids could play outdoors.  Yesterday it was back to being cold and miserable so I took them to the local flea market and then came home and started on the other half on my room, which meant I stood around in my bra and undies trying everything on to see what I should keep and what I should donate. 
Drag- Italy sounds beautiful. I am glad you enjoyed your trip!

Keeping- How are all the wedding plans going? Tick, tock, tick, tock!   ;D  Hope your power point went well!  Feeling any better?

Mum- I actually have some green stuff coming up here finally!  I think it might be my hostas.  I would love to be able to get about 20 aborvitae and plant them around my fence in the backuyard so when they get bigger we can feel like we are in our own little eutopia, maybe when I get my taxes back?  My mother sends me a gardening magazine and one of the articles was about starting seedlings and putting them in a sled so you can pull them out in the sun during the day and pull them inside at night, don't know if that would work for you.  You would have to poke some drainage holes in the sled.  You and your husband had a very interesting beginning, those will be fun stories to pass on from generation to generation.  Have your heard anything about your husbands brothers kids down in New Orleans?

Betty-  Good Luck on the patch.  Have you tried Febreeze to get rid of the cig smell?

Tendai- Nice to hear from you.  That is crazy your gov't is leaving you hanging like that, I can't stand that crap.  Politics to me are all very frustrating. 

Queen- Come out the box on Kevin's ass, go up one side and down the other and don't let him get a word out and  maybe he will leave you alone.  Freakin wierdo!

cjc- I hope the lines are better at your Walmart than they are here, I spend more time in line than I do getting the shit I need.  Some people can sense when you are stressed or going through some shit, it is almost like they have a sixth sense, that was nice of her to say that though.

Wish- I hope you had a nice un-eventful weekend without any shit from your babies daddy.

Win- As always I love your pics.  How's the baby doing?

Hope everyone is well.
Take care,
Snow

Afternoon ladies:

Well, I haven't had a cigarette today, so far.  I bought some licorice to keep in my mouth for the oral thing. 

Cristy, I don't suppose prayer hurts anyone. 

Drag, that story about the young African girl just reminds me of like a mail-order bride or something.  It's kind of creepy.

Mum, wow.  You and your hubby really have had quite the life.  Sometime you're going to have to tell us a few stories.  I can't plant anything.  I don't know how and I would kill whatever I planted.  But good luck with that.

Snow, periods just suck.  I hate them.  I noticed you mentioned in the food thread about being hungrier around your period.  Yes, I'm like that as well.  I'm hoping that once the Depo kicks in, I won't have anymore.  How'd the sorting of your clothes go?  When I cleaned out my clothes, I gave 5 huge bags of clothes to Goodwill.

Today is a beautiful day.  It's 60 and sunny.  Tomorrow it's supposed to rain, but still be warm.  I don't think we're supposed to dip below like 54 this week (except at night).  I hope everyone enjoys the weather.  Later ladies-

Hi GFs~

I didn't go to work today, I was burned out, even after the weekend, so I said "screw it."  I am far enough ahead with the important things that I could afford the day off.

I spent more time looking for docs online this weekend and today.  My heart nearly sank at first.  The first new doc I tried calling kept having his voice mail pick up all last week at the office, no matter what time of day you called.  I finally gave up on him.

Found a second doc today and called, turns out he was the Chair for the Board of Directors at a local hospital, with regards to HIV research.  Sounded very promising.  I called this afternoon and he retired last December.  I started crying after I hung up.  How hard is it to find an ID doc in the DC suburbs?  Surely I'm not the ONLY one with this virus, lol?

I saw a third doc listed and thought, "Shit he looks like he's in the opposite direction from home, lots of traffic and congestion...."  I googled his location and he's closer than I thought!  About 15 minutes from work (7 miles) and yes, they are taking new patients.  My appt is already set for next week!   ;D  Oh, and get this.  The location and the office is right across the street from the cemetery where my grandparents are buried.  I haven't been there since Feb 2005 when Grandma died.  I haven't been down this way for anything, but now that I am working in the town where I grew up (closer to DC) everything is flooding back. 

Its a great cozy feeling!  I will go "talk" to my grandparents at the cemetery next week before my appt.  :)

I still have my 3-month follow-up with my bitch doc set for next Thursday, but I will call and cancel after I meet the new doc.  You know my current bitch doc only has office hours from 7-8am?  Yeah, that is whacked.

I had a great weekend with Iceman after all was said and done.  I was feeling a little left out, needing some attention Friday when I got there, but he was "in the zone" from work.  Saturday morning he was gone before I even woke up, but then was back at 130pm.  We took Cheech for a walk down by the train tracks together, it was just what we needed.  He mentioned how he liked his new house and that it was enough space for him, for his kids when he has them, and also for me.  I thought that was really sweet of him to say, and I brought it up again Sunday.  I think people need to realize when they say or do little things that make a difference, and he is such a kind man. 

BT, good job on the no smoking.  Now I don't want to have to hear about you airing out your apartment again 3 months from now.  I know you can stick with this!

Queen, you can pretty much look up any meter that you like and get one for free.  The meter companies are all fighting to have us as customers cause they make money off of us (or insurance) paying for those over-priced test strips.  www.freestylelite.com has been advertising all over TV lately, and they use the same strips that my pump/meter combo used.  It only takes 5 seconds to get your reading, that's what I like about it, no 45-second countdown.  I may check it out and get one.  My current one graphs the sugars and has a carb counter in it, its pretty detailed, but it keeps asking me "Do you want to activate a pod (pump) now?" every time I turn it on, lol!  Um, NO, that would cost me $2000 a year WITH insurance.  LOL

Cristy, its amazing sometimes when people can just look at you and know you need a little boost.  I went to a women's church retreat about 11 years ago, shortly after my husband died.  All of the women lined up, and one by one the (female) Pastor prayed silently for us and hugged us.  She finished hugging me and was looking at me at arm's length, with her hands on my shoulders and she blessed me again.  She KNEW I was dealing with some heavy shit, with being a young widow and dealing with my health.  I have always thought that was fascinating, how they could just TELL.

I could write on and on, but I need to shower and look at my budget for April.  Also, nice to see you Drag, glad your trip was a good one!

Oh and Mum, you sound like a new woman in your posts, you MUST be feeling some relief!  Yippee!!!!!

Win, I am gonna check out those picture sites, thanks for posting them!

To all of my GFs here, bless you and have a safe evening.

I went to the docotr and they say I have a bad sprain. I have a leg wrap from my thigh to my ankle , then a plastic splint around my ankle. I was kinda depressed but today i went back and they said nothing was broken and that I should be ok in a week and if not i go to an orthopedic doc, but the swelling is slowly going down and i am not in much pain as i was. just taking it easy and keeping my foot elevated.
Hope all is well. luv yall

Evening ladies:

TreDai, good to see you stopping in.  Visit us more frequently.

Wish, Adipex aye?  I've heard of those.  Yes, they certainly will 'help' you get things done (lol).

Cin, I'm glad you found a new doctor close to your home.  That sounds just like something you need with everything healthwise you've had to deal with lately.  Sounds like you had a really nice, relaxing weekend with Ice.  Any pictures of him?

Wendy, that baby is sooooo adorable. 

Netta, you poor thing.  Sprains can hurt worse than breaks sometimes.  Stay off of it as much as possible and good luck.

Nothing to report.  I'm just checking in.  Still no cigarettes.  I threw them all out last night.  Here's hoping I can do it this time.  Everyone have a good sleep.

Betty- Suprisingly I only had 2 bags full but I am not done yet.  I REALLY need to my SO's stuff, we have a 5 or 6 ft hanger thingy on wheels, I might have a foot of stuff on it, the rest is all his, he has about 25 jackets just on that, he probably has another 20 around the house.  Don't even get me started on all his shoes and jeans.  Last summer he gave away 2 or 3 huge totes of clothes and he needs to give away about 4 more.

Netta- Sorry to hear about your fall, try to take it easy, I am glad the pain is not as bad as it was. 

Win-  That is such a cute pic!

Hi- Tredai...How did things work out with your hair?

Ok, here goes and hoping I can remember everything. 

Snow: this is only the 2nd garden we've planted since we moved here 7yrs ago.  The first one we planted, we ended up feeding the wildlife.  Didn't realize that Bambi and his band of theives would be brave enough to just waltz up to the house and eat everything.  We shall see what happens.  We have a tree down at the bottom of our hill where I'd like to put a rock garden.  I have no idea how to do it, though. 

Cin: I am feeling better, thank you.  I'm still having "episodes" but it's not lasting all day and night.  I woke up this morning and didn't have to take meds until about noon.  Usually, I've had 3 doses by then.  I'm going to med-up tomorrow - not sure how my allergies will react to the animals (the ones that live in the zoo, not the ones we're bringing).

Betty: My suggestion is to plant bulbs.  They come back every year without you having to replant anything.  There are bulbs that bloom in the spring and others that come out in the fall.  You can plant them in the same planter right next to each other.  Just be sure to keep them watered and when they are dying, let the leaves completly dry and fall off.  That's how the bulbs get their "food" to last them through the winter.  Best time to buy bulbs is in the fall when places (Wal-mart) are getting rid of their garden centers for winter.  Who cares if you're buying tulips or hastas that are totally dead. They are annuals and all you really want are the bulbs.  I bought tulips that the cashier thought I was NUTS for buying - they were all withered and dying - for 10 cents / ea. instead of close to $4.  I planted 20 of them and they all grew last year and are back this year.  Just something to think about.

Winn: She is so beautiful!  I just can't believe how big she has gotten. 

Netta: What a bad bit of luck!  I hope you heal really quickly. 

We went to Good Will today and loaded up on spring / summer dresses for the girls and short sleeved shirts for the boys.  Then, at dance class, someone gave us 2 garbage bags of clothes.  The only one who may need anything is #1.  The friend who used to pass clothes to us for him moved away.  The weather isn't stable enough for us to change seasons, but it is time to start taking out some short sleeves shirts.  I hate changing seasons. It takes at least a month for me to go through all the closets, dressers, containers, get everything sorted, what we're keeping, sending to Good Will or passing along to someone else, rinse it all, dry it all, and get it put away.  Would it be so terrible to wear shorts to play in the snow?  I mean, I'd put a coat on them.

Tend: I'm glad you checked in today. I look forward to getting to know you better.

Ok, I think i got everyone in.  If I missed anyone, I'm sorry and send you lots of extra lovin's.  Have a great tonight and a wonderful tomorrow!

It seems like everyone had a pretty full day. The weather was nice here except it was a little bit windy. I finally finished my hair but I really don't like the way it turned out. I will still keep it this way since it took me so long to do it, maybe next time it will turn out better.

Cindy, Glad you found an ID doc. It was the same way for me when I first started looking for one but now my ASO has a clinic that comes every month so I don't have to worry about that. But I was seeing my ID in his private practice before he hooked up with the clinic. I get to my primary doctor's appointment after getting a ride from a friend, to find out that they cancelled my appointment. The nurse said they left me a message but it was on my landline, I forgot to give them my new cell number. But this is the second time that the doctor has cancelled on me and I am feeling some type of way. The first time he was sick but the nurse said he called off today, WTF? So, I had to wait for my ride to get to his house in order to call him back, he is one of the few people who doesn't have a cell phone. While waiting for him to get back, I updated things with the nurse and called my insurance company to see if they would cover he glucometer I wanted.(One Touch Ultra 2) Which I found they did, they cover anything by One Touch. I told the nurse so she is going to call it in at the pharmacy but I'll call her to make sure. I love a new gadget, guess it's the geek in me.

After getting home, I started cleaning the house. The roomie made some margaritas and I rolled some green from a plant here. I noticed Christy brought up weed and Dragonette commented on liking homegrown. Here in the hood, homegrown sucks and usually gives me a headache. We have three types of weed around here..homegrown..midgrade....and hydro...Hydro being the best and costs more. Since I am on a budget, I usually stick with midgrade. After cleaning me and the roomie downed the margaritas and by 8pm, I was in the bed, calling myself taking a nap and slept til almost 2 am. So, I missed taking my pills and my sleep is going to be off. Not concerned about missing the pills, I have to get labs done the end of this month anyway, my ID doc appointment is in May. It'll be interesting to see how that goes since being sick and all.

I figured since I was up, I smoked a doobie and figured I would check in and see how my girls are. Damn, Netta, I hope that leg gets better soon. I have never broken a bone in my body and the only surgery I have had was 3 c-sections. I guess I am blessed. Not to say I don't fall but I guess I am kind of like a cat, I tend to land not on my feet but knees. So, Cindy played hookey from work...lol...You deserve it. Betty, Good luck with stopping smoking. I am going to try to do something about quitting soon but not sure what to try with the horror stories I've heard about Chantix but has heard good things too, kind a confused on it all but I know I want to quit smoking cigs, not the green. ;D

Other than that, nothing going on for me today. It is suppose to be nice so I will probably just open the windows and air the house out some more. I'll check in later today.

Morning ladies,

Betty good luck with the quitting. I know you can do it. Every day you go without is pure gain. It takes a long while to lose the cravings, but you will lose them, I know cos I was such a heavy smoker when I was a teen/young adult, I was still addicted later and smoked about a pack a day normally but back in those days I was a total chainsmoker for years.

Wini great pic and that reminds me that I saw Viv's pic and you look great! and also Cindy's pic with Cheech.

Gorgeous day today and shame to stay indoors. I havent posted on the food thread but I will sometime soon, I just havent had time. sounds like an excuse.

Cindy i think its so cool Ice wants you to move in. are you considering?

I had an insecuirity attack last night, I get them once in a while esp when I hear the usual stories of guys who play with numerous girls, or cant commit, etc, from my friends, and then I get into this mode where I dread that my own relationship is temporary or just an illusion. My BF doesnt do so well with having to reassure me. but then I had some relevelation, kind of realized the obvious, that its all in my head, that I dont have to go there...

Netta too bad about the ankle, that happened to me 2-3 times, better than a fracture though cos you can shower and it should heal soon, hope so!

Snow my BF is also a "hoarder" and its really hard to get him to part with his stuff. Our apartment is pretty cramped, but soon he'll have to bring in 6-7 boxes of files and papers from work. I have no idea where it will go.

Queen, now I am craving a margarita, and it's 12.00 and am at work. You have strange sleep patterns, I'd be like a zombie if I tried that, though I always go to bed later than I should and get up too late as a result, but it's all in one go.

TreDai how did the hair turn out?

Ciao bellas, for now

PS we havent heard from Paulette in a while, hope she's OK...

Morning ladies:

Mum, I went to Goodwill yesterday also.  I went to Salvation Army too.  There's one good Salvation Army store here.  They have clothes cheaper than Goodwill.  There are actually a few Salvation Army stores, but the other ones smell musty.  Goodwill is getting expensive on their clothes.  Jeans here are now $7.00!  About the planting of the bulbs....well.......I'm just not good at that sort of thing.  I know, I know, it's probably very easy.  But, I would probably forget to water them or something.  Maybe I'll think about it later this year.

Queen, I can't use the Chantix.  I took it with a meal, but everything (even water) that I put in my mouth was nauseating.  Not to the point where I'd throw up, but to the point where I wouldn't want to eat or drink anything.  So, I'm on the patches.  My Medicare Part D plan doesn't cover the patches anymore, but they don't cost me anymore than cigarettes do.  A little less, in fact. 

Drag, I suppose it can throw you off a bit hearing about men who can't commit or stay with just one person.  But, of course, that's not every man.  I figure if a man doesn't really want to be with a woman, then he won't be, albeit eventually sometimes. 

I read all my homework yesterday for tonight's class.  I still have a research paper to do.  I think I'm going to do it about hate groups and LGBT people, focusing on Matthew Shepard.  I'll probably go the library this weekend, and find some information there.  The computer is a wealth of information, but I hate using printer ink for information for a paper.  Cartridges are too damn expensive. 

Still no cigarette.  I really didn't have any bad cravings yesterday until I sat down at the computer last night.  I smoked constantly while on the computer before.  I did buy some licorice and that helps somewhat.  I'm also going to exercise again this morning.  Since I've gotten older, I'm more concerned about things I never gave a shit about when younger, even 5 years ago.   Cholesterol, sugar control, weight in certain places, heart, lungs etc. etc. etc. 

Alright, all you ladies have a good morning, and behave yourselves.

Moon: SO u gonna be shacking up wit iceman??..lol..j/k...i remember when i was going thru it right after my dg and being preg..i got heavily into church (which i need to get back into)..and one day while just sitting with my kids in the pews and Pastor had just pointed me out and started praying and b4 i knew it was ballin uncontrollably..thinkin OMG how could he know what i am suffering..how does he know this pain in my heart..well he did..and at the end of the service they did a special offering just for me...and i ended up taking home over $1000 that i soooo desperately needed at the time...preg, no family (in fl), just got fired for nothin, and just feeling totally abandoned.....i feel like im testifying but i guess in a way i am...

Hi, Snow, Tre, Cams, CJC, Keeping, cheetara (where u at girl), blessed, nygurl (holla at ya girl??), all the guys lurking, and anyone else i missed...i tried to say something to everyone cus i hate to look down the line and no one says anything to me....( i know im too sensitive) but still i feel bummed, and it happens alot...but i have to stay more in the loop with u guys and try n read all that miss so that i can address folks...

Morning Ladies-
I have one munchkin home with me this morning, she was up all night coughing and I was up allnight with her so now I am kinda tired.  I have to go to my olders sons school at 1 to help with the book fair.  I went to a CoDA meeting last night and it was pretty good, it seems to be a nice group of people.  AAhhhh...she just came up to me and said she "missed her bruders"

Betty-  Goodwill is getting crazy around here too. I brought my stuff to this place we have called the Survival Center, in one section they have mens and womens stuff and everything is 2 bucks and the other section they have mens, womens and kids and you pay 3 bucks to fill up a bag but you can only go once a month.  Your doing awesome at the non-smoking!  Do you like popsicles?  maybe they would help with your oral fixation and you could make them with something that is good for you.  Good Luck on your paper,  I hate to read stuff like that, I have no tolerance for that kind of shit at all, it makes me so mad.

Drag-  Don't even get me started on hoarding ;D we have a 24 ft trailer that he made into a shed full of shit AND the garage is chucker block full too. The whole point of having the garage was for me to be able to drive in with the kids and they get out w/o freezing thier asses off and go in the house and it hasn't happened yet. He has more stuff than me and the 4 kids combined.  How are things back at work, have your recovered from your vacation?  I was always more tired after a vacation than before I went on one and I never went anywhere.  I am glad you had that revelation, you have to try not to worry about that stuff anyway, it just makes it worse sometimes.

Cin- Your doc is only open for an hour?  I thought my new one was bad because they are closed all day Monday and Friday.  That is nice you were able to find a new doc near your grandparents.  So what happened with the consultant?


Queen- What didn't you like about your hair?  Yummy....margaheritas!!My friend bought some tequila the other day that is raspberry flavored, she said you can't even taste the tequila in it.  We tried finding it near my house and all we could find was pineapple and citrus and it is strong.

Wish- Hope you got some rest!

Everyone have a good day!

Snow, at least you guys have places for storage. Oh well, it's nothing to lose sleep over right?
about work, am out of it... just killing time really, undisciplined. I know I have to haul ass and get out of the net, and get back on track like before my holiday. It doesn't help that spring is here either... thx for asking!

I did some sew in for my hair but it just doesn't look right. I don't feel like taking it down, I had done that once already. I guess I'll wear something on my head for awhile.... :(  Ok, I really missed something...Ice asked Cindy to move in with him? That is major but I can see Cindy doing that. She loves Ice so much and all. Next thing you know they are going to be married. No, I am not tripping, you guys wait and see.

I still have not heard any news on my car which is frustrating me. I turned in paper work to my case worker for a clothing allowance and it is still not there yet. This is after I called her yesterday and told her I dropped it off. I am trying not to get frustrated. I am still waiting on Section 8, I swear they are slow. I was discussing with my landlord since he is in the program and knows how it works. I may have lucked up on a house which he is trying to buy. He told me where it was and I went and looked at it yesterday, the outside. It is very nice and in a nice neighborhood. No more hood for me, hopefully I will be out of this biatch and will be moving on up. I just hate the waiting game, it is driving me nuts. Did I mention, I really want this house...It has a fenced back yard and a driveway..If he gets it, he told me it's mine....MMMMM, BBQ's in the back and I'm far enough out that you have to have a car to visit but close enough to stores I need to get to.

I forgot to write before, Wishful, I know it feels awkward writing something and being ignored, I get it sometimes too, but there is just so much going down with this thread and so many people. personally I try to write everyone but sometimes you end up missing on most of the content like if someone brings up more than 1 thing. which is why I logged in again actually, to tell you that I'm also dreaming of white pants this summer.

Queen good luck with the new place.

Hi everybody  ;D

The baby is sleeping so I decided to stick my head in and say hello to you all.  I think I've been having some post-baby blues because I've been kind of down lately.  I love coming on line and reading whats going on with everyone because it is very lonely not having anyone to talk to about the things I'm going thru.  Giving the baby his meds, how my meds make me feel and getting ready for my lil' man to get his second test are all heavy on my mind.  My partner and I don't discuss my status that often and when I try and tell him how I'm feeling he doesn't understand.  I may be blowing things up a bit but maybe I'm not.  We've been together more than 6 years now and sometimes I think him being negative is more of an obstacle to me than to him.  I feel like he thinks if we don't talk about it then it really doesn't exist sometimes.  I recently disclosed to my oldest daughter because she is getting ready to go to college and I didn't want her to leave without knowing just in case on the off chance something happened to me.  My man had a fit and that is probably an understatement.  He said my telling her made him luck like a fool for being with me all these years while knowing my status.  I was hurt and taken back by that and I guess it made me look at our relationship without the rose colored glasses I may have been wearing for a long time.  I know I have a tendency to push aside things that aggravate me because all relationships require compromise but now I'm thinking if that is how he feels maybe its no wonder I feel like I'm in a box all the time while being with him.  Then I start thinking to myself that life is so short and I think being pos really lets you appreciate that.  I hate the idea that he is ashamed of me because being pos is definitely apart of me (a 14 year part of me).  When we moved to California for his job we ended up in a small town so I had to drive over and hour to get closer to LA to see a ID specialist that dealt with pregnancies but now that I'm not pregnant there is a doctor around the corner from us that I can go see.  He wants me to keep driving to the doctor I was seeing while I was pregnant because he is concerned that someone he knows from work or a coworkers spouse might see me and connect the 2 of us.  I'm pissed!!!  I'm pissed all the time now and now I'm really ready to say screw it all and just take my kids and leave but then I think about the kids and for my twins he's the only man they have ever had in their lives and now we have Jordan.  I don't know but I just look at him and I feel cheated because he is definitely not the man I thought he was.  On top of all that I can't have sex with him because he disgusts me and while I was pregnant he said I was fat and unattractive so needless to say it has been along time.  I know I probably rambled a little but  I just needed to get some things out. 

Netta-I'm sorry to hear about your accident

Win-I'm in love with the baby pic

Cin-Congrats on you and Ice (it is a good thing right?)

Queen-To bad your hair didn't work out

Wish-How much weight are you trying to loose?

Snow- I hope your lil' one is feeling better

I know I left alot of people out but Jordan is screaming to be fed so I have to go but hopefully I'll get some time to get back online later :)

Good afternoon ladies:

First of all, Blessed, dump that no good mother-fucker!  He is not going to change, so don't count on it.  (I'm speaking from experience here, trust me).  You can't stay with someone 'because of the kids.'  The kids will know when they're a little older what's up, and they might just resent the way he treats their mother (you).  I get so highly annoyed by men that treat women like dogs.  Leaving will just get harder as time goes on.  Do not feel obligated to stay with him for any reason.  You are much better than what he's treating you like.  You deserve better.  Talk to your ASO, a counselor, someone, and find a way to get the hell away from the no good son-of-a-bitch. 

Wish, no I haven't tried that Nicorette.  I'm using a nicotine patch.  That helps a lot.  I also keep plenty of licorice on hand.  I have one year to go in school and I'll be done (BS in Psych).  I'm going to try to work somewhere, part-time.  I don't want to make over the amount for disability.  You should think about going back.  Education doesn't hurt anyone.  I loved those pictures of your kids!  Adorable.

Snow, I hope your little one's feeling better soon.  Will she have to see a doctor?  I'm glad you like Coda.  Like I said, they used to have it here, but then everyone got into relationships with the others who were going (hee).  I hope it works for you.  I'm all for meetings, you know that.  At least for people who need them.

OK, Blessed, I know it's easy for me to tell you to dump that asshole; easier than it actually is for you to leave.  But there is always a way.  There is help.  Please, please, don't put yourself (and your kids) through unnecessary abuse, be it verbal or physical.

Queen, what the hell are you doing up at 10 something in the morning?  *gasp*  I don't think Cindy actually said she was going to move in with Ice.  But, it wouldn't surprise me.  And if she announced she was going to marry him, it wouldn't surprise me either.  I hope you get your hair straightened the way you like it.  And good luck on getting that house.  That would probably be a real lift to your spirits.

Still not ciggies.  I went to Goodwill again, another one closer to me.  I refuse to pay $7.00 though for a pair of jeans.  I'll wait until their 1/2 off day.  I hope with my exercising (and semi-dieting) I'll be able to shed a few lbs.  About wearing the 'white,' well, heh, I pretty much wear what I want.  Fuck people if they don't like it.  That's just me though.  I rarely worry about what other people think.  You ladies all have a good afternoon.  I'll check in later, probably when I get home from school tonight.
