Just breezing through, since I am taking a break from Warcraft for a moment. Snow, yeah it has been hot and humid here. I've been in it a few times. I usually end up pouring in sweat with a headache or feel like I have no energy.

I am loving this laptop, I can play Warcraft without all the lagging. It's funny because me and Papi are laying in the bed next to each other with our laptops running. I am going to try to figure out how to put music on my phone. It's an mp3 player that can hold 600 songs or pictures since I have a memory card. I feel like Beyonce and being Upgraded.

Betty--Sorry you had such a rough day. When I read your post about it being 2 bucks I knew whoever told you that didn't know what the hell they were speaking about. Do you have to get a lawyer for that? Or just fill out the paperwork and pay the filing fee? It is worth looking into for sure, don't give up.

Have a good evening ladies..

Matching laptops?  OH gf you got it bad.   ;D  I'm happy that you're having such a good time.  How much longer are you in NY? 

I have been very tired this week, prob due to the stress of getting a renter.  I am hoping that things settle down soon. 

Only a short day at work today, so time to get out the door into the lighter traffic and get it over with.

I love Fridays, esp with this cooler weather this morning.  Sunday is supposed to be 95 degrees and Ice and I have pressure-washing to do.  Oh dear.

Morning all,

Holly, I couldn't take Sustiva because of the side effects (what's in Atripla that causes those nasty effects).  They do everyone different, and some people have no problem with the medication, and others do.

Queen, thanks for the encouragement.  I went online to try and find the forms, and I couldn't find them.  I'm sure they're here somewhere, I just haven't run across it yet.  I'll try doing another search later to see if I can locate them.  If I can, then all I would have to pay is the filing fee for the court (I guess).  Otherwise, I'd have to get legal help, and we all know that costs a lot of money.  I'm thinking the forms may be under their "proper" legal name, and I don't know what that is.

Cin, it's supposed to get very hot here over the weekend also, and I'm not looking forward to it.  We've had a pretty mild summer so far.

I did get to register for classes yesterday.  Hopefully those forms will come today or tomorrow; one of them my doctor has to fill out, and the time for school to start is getting closer and closer.  The advisor who helped me register said that if the loans don't come through for whatever reason, as long as I drop during the first week of school, there would be no charges. 

Today I'm supposed to meet a woman from Kenya.  A lady I used to go to church with had told me about her a few weeks ago.  The lady speaks fluent English, but has a hard time navigating through the system.  She's HIV+, has one child, and one on the way.  She's on meds, and lives in subsidized housing, because she has no income.  My friend seems to think she needs disability.  So, I'm going to meet her today and see what's going on.  I told her I would help.            You all have a good day.

Morning----

Cindy, Well, I will be in NY til the 25th then I am back home to finish the final things I need to do. I have some things I have to move up to my best friend's house and then shampoo the carpets. I plan on leaving PA for the last time on August 31st or September 1st. And what is pressure washing?

Betty---Now how many times have you been there to encourage me? So many I have lost count so I am returning the favor. Maybe you can call a lawyer or your courthouse to find out the name of the paperwork you need filed. Just a thought but I am sure you have thought of it already. Don't give up.

I wonder how Wendy is doing? Anyone stay in contact with her? And wondering how Mum is doing with her new found freedom? I still am laughing about that....I hope Mini is doing ok.

Well, I am off.  But before I go, time to start a new thread.....Someone jump in.....

Hi GFs, what a beautiful day...No humidity!  Yeah!!!!!!  8).

Betty, you are a strong and wonderful lady, with all of your setbacks you still continue to reach out and help others. My late husband always said you get back double when you reach out to help others and it's your turn to get back. I will pray for you and keep you in my thoughts. If you can't find out what forms you need, I will email my sister (she is a lawyer in CA) and ask her. She may know as she works in the prosecutors office, I also have a friend who is a paralegal I can ask he if you need, she is in DE.

I am off on vacation today just enjoying the weather and relaxing.  I had a showing this morning so the dogs and I took a ride and did a few errands. We went to the VA cemetery and put flowers and a flag on my late husbands grave.  It gets easier each time I go...It has been allmost a year now, but I still miss him so much.  :(

 On a happier note, I think I will go take a dip in the pool and get some sun. I need the break. My dogs love to go out and lay by the pool when it is cool like this.  :o

Have a great day.  Mary

Queen, thanks again.  I may call a lawyer, though when my therapist was here yesterday, he said he may talk to a criminal lawyer friend of his to find out what needs to be done.  I don't know when he'd get back with me, though, because he said he'll be gone for a few weeks.  I'll keep trying to find it on the internet and if I can't come up with it by Sunday, I'll give either the courthouse, or a lawyer a call. Of course, most lawyers want to charge for a consultation.  I don't know what happened with Wendy.  I hope she's alright.

Mary, again, I'm sorry about your husband.  It took a good year and a half before I started feeling a little "normal" after my 1st husband died, even though he was a jackass.  Just hang in there.  If you want to talk to your sister, I would appreciate it.  Of course, the laws in California are probably different than the ones here in Indiana.  But, what she tells you may be a place for me to start.  Thanks so much.

Just waiting for dinner.  I hope everyone's having a good day.

Hi Gfs~

BT, I am hoping that your paperwork comes through.  When I worry about things like that I just keep calling every other day until I drive someone nuts on the phone.  You could always ask to speak to someone higher up.  I can't believe how many classes you've taken!

Queen, the side of my house has green algae stuff on it cause it doesn't get direct sun to burn it off.  A pressure washer is just that -- water under high pressure that you can spray onto houses, decks, fences, etc, to get the grime to come off.  Its gonna be an Oxy Clean kinda weekend, lol.

Mary, sorry you're feeling down about your late husband.  Its always been so strange for me this time of year, I'm right in btwn his birthday and his passing, and then the wedding anniversary in October.  The first year my husband was gone was really tough.  I remember that on our second anniversary (we only had one), I went to the church after work and put two flowers right up on the altar where we had stood two years prior.  It was cathartic.  This August 21st will be 13 years and I am only 39.  We were so young.  I'm OK right now, even with the birthday having passed already, but the date of his death is only a few weeks out.  I am going through big changes in my life right now with Ice, living with him, leaving my home of 16 years, throwing things out, finding old guitar picks....its a lot to go through, but I am stronger after all of this time.  You'll get there, too.


Compatibility view isn't even working so I need to go before I have a seizure, sheesh.

More soon,

Cindy

Someone start a new thread..........puhleeeeeeeeeeze....*lol* My muse of creativity went on vacation..

Ah, I see we were on at the same time, Cindy. Oh, that's what pressure washing is...The movie Lakeview Terrace comes to mind...Samuel L. Jackson was using one of those things to keep his house from catching fire from the wildfires...I don't know why I think of tv things like that at the weirdest times...Oh well....
