Morning ladies:

Queen, don't let other people run  you off the forums. If you need a break from them, alright.  But you're just as important as any other person on here.  I would just love to have this person come forward with who he actually is so I could rip him a new asshole. 

Drag, what will you be up to this weekend?

Tendai, have they decided the elections yet?  I haven't heard anything lately. 

Mum, your brakes went out?  Wow.  I'm so glad no one got hurt.  It's always a story with you guys!  It makes me not feel so bad.  My sister in AZ, who is a respit worker for the state and has two handicapped kids in home has no 401K, retirement, insurance etc. either.  But I think she's eventually looking to get out of it.  I'm not sure when and she's getting older (56).  And she has to fight to get everything for her kids.  Her stepson (she has sole custody of) has severe CP, is blind and severely retarded, and has upper respiratory distress all the time to where she is constantly suctioning him.  He can't eat anything solid either; Ensure goes in through a tube via his belly.  The girl she has has spina bifida.  I'm sure you two would have a lot to talk about. 

I've been up for a couple hours.  I already had my coffee, exercised, ate breakfast and cleaned up the kitchen.  All I have to do is take a shower.  I want to get a study-guide written out for the upcoming final in my Political Psych class.  That should take awhile.  This weekend I'm going to do the research paper that's due on the last day of class (a week & 1/2).  Still no smoking.  I'm finding it the hardest when I see someone else smoking.  It just looks so relaxing.  I keep reminding myself of the smoker's cough, constant sinus problems etc. 

Nothing exciting happening in my neck.  This evening I'll be going out to supper with my best gay friend.  We're going to Applebee's; I've never been there, but heard it's good.  I hope all you lovely ladies have a good morning.  I'll be back.

Hubby called a couple of hours ago and said that the brake pads needed replaced to the tune of $250.  I had a small heart attack.  He called back later and said that they folks still hadn't gotten to the car.  I asked him how in the wolrd he knew how much it was going to be if no one had looked at it.  He ensured me that they did indeed look at it, then took it off the rack and proceeded to work on cars that didn't require as much work.  WHAT THE HECK??  If they had my car on the rack, knew what was wrong, then why didn't they fix it?

 Anyway, Hubby just called me back and said they have it back on the rack and it's worse than they thought (why am I not suprised?).  The cost is now $700 !!!  I had another small heart attack and an anurism.  The stroke, I'm sure, will follow soon.  I asked if they were going to take it back off the rack or if they were going to actually fix it this time.  Good news is that they are working on it and should be done in about another hour.  There's no banks within walking distance of the mechanic so not sure how Hubby plans on robbing one to pay the bill.  It's not like we walk around with $700 in our back pockets, or our bank accounts.  *sigh* I guess we'll work that out when he gets home.

I just got finished pulling out some short-sleeved shirts for the gang.  It's getting up to 77 today, but by Monday, it's supposed to be back to 48.  By Wed / Thurs., back to the upper 60's to low 70's.  I only pulled 3 or 4 for each kid.  My cough still lingers and I'm back to ignoring it.  It's caused whatever it is that keeps me from peeing to get "tired" and not close properly.  So, I'm also back to leaking every time I cough.  I'm tempted to squeeze my big honkus into #4's size 3 diapers.  I'm falling apart at the seams and the hotglue just won't hold me together anymore. :P

Nothing else exciting has happened today. Laundry, laundry, and more laundry.  I've folded 2 loads, have 1 in the drier, 1 in the washer, and 1 more to wash and dry.  Crazy thing is that by the end of the day, I'll have another load to do.  I'm joining a blind nudist colony.

It's another day. And I feel totally numb. For the time being, I'll stay away from the rest of the forums. I don't like being around phony people and if it is indeed the person I'm told it is then it will be for the best. I figure if anyone from the other side wants to know what's up with me, they can PM me or lurk over here. Ann, I will PM you with the details of why I feel it is who it is.

A friend did loan me money to get my car from the mechanic.I didn't even ask him but he knew what I was going through. I just have to figure out how it is going to get here. No money for a tow truck so I am looking for someone to tow it, actually it can be driven but needs a chain hooked up for a tow because the plate and stickers are expired. Another friend owes me some money and my son owes me money too, though he is always not dependable. But if I get both from them, then that should cover the cost of getting the brakes and rotors. The friend who lent me the money for the mechanic is also going to put them on for me because he knows the mechanic personally and says the guy will overcharge me for doing it. So needless to say I am grateful for that small blessing. Now I just have to come up with the money for the tires and to make it legal. If a car doesn't pass inspection here, you only have 10 days to get the problems fixed or to be able to drive it.

It is someone else's turn to start up the next thread. My sugars have been high as hell lately and I haven't been eating but once a day even with smoking. I am assuming it is prolly all the stress I have been under. Nothing planned for the weekend but to do my hair over. I'll be around...

Good afternoon ladies:

Mum, wow.  That's a lot of money.  And from what you posted earlier, you guys will probably have a hard time paying the bill.  I wish you only the best, you know that.

Queen, just hang with us.  Maybe this whole thing will be straightened out.  I hope it will.  I would really hate to find out the person we think it is was actually the one posting it.  It just seems really out of character.  Well, whoever posted all that shit in your blog is a shit-for-brains person (people).  Like I said, you know we love you.  I hope your sugars get better.  I hate it when mine are really high.  It makes me feel bad, emotionally as well as physically.  Mine are usually high in the morning; but that's because I eat a lot of carbs/sugar at night.  Something about the night makes me want to eat.  Anyway girl, you just stay tough.  We're here for you.

I did get the study guide written out for next week's exam.  I have nothing to do now until gay bff comes by around 5:00.  I was going to go get a couple Glade candles at the store, but it's supposed to start storming here, any minute now, with wind gusts getting up to 40 mph.  It's a tad overcast out, but not too bad.  Of course, that could change in 5 minutes. 

I hope all the other ladies are doing alright.  Yes, it is time to start another thread, but Queen and I did the last two; who's going next?

Keeping, just go to the main menu of the women's forum and click on New Topic

Queen you need to get some food in ya. I cant really relate to the no apetite thing, never felt that. of course my vain and anorexic side wishes i did, but i know its no picnic. it looks like slowly the car thing will work out.
Don't get depressed on us.. for a couple lousy comment in your blog. I read them BTW. It seems like you feel you have to answer every comment, you don't. You don't need to justify yourself continuously to every Tom & Dick. "Dick" hehe, at least I make myself chuckle.

Mum, reading you & Queen, I am seriously thankful I dont need a car as of yet. it's like another family member to take care of. what a pain in the behind. try not to drown in all that laundry.

i feel great today, i even went to my first ever spinning class, but sad that my sisters are down. it's like when the thread is happy it makes the picture complete, know what i mean.

ciao for now

oh yeah Betty, you go for no smoking, of course being around smokers makes you crave, that's about the only time I still crave too...
