THANKS Mary, in time it'll be easier to handle. HE LOVED it when I told him about the quilt you made me. He thought that was "special" in his words,, and of course IT IS !!! THANKS Sweetie.

I of course MISS him,,, but, yet its also not really hit,,,, it will. He had beat death 8 times,,, so that's why this doesn't seem real,,,, in the back of my heart,, I had HOPED he'd BEAT THIS TIME ALSO , but yet knowing, when he stopped eating 2 weeks ago,, he would not do so. Still I've for many eons of yrs told him "u r my timex Daddy,, you take a LICKING and KEEP on TICKING Dad " !!! So yeah,,, it'll hit at somepoint,,, when during the day something happens,, and I go to call him,,, that's no doubt when i'll break down and cry hard. today Karen came over ,, I had also called GD,,, and she came right over as soon as her class was over,,, she s working in a group home now,, NOT BAD for a 19 yr old,, just outta HS !! i am SO PROUD of her !! Today she even talked of going back to school to become an RN !! WOW ! this is the same girl,, we had to FIGHT to KEEP in HS long enough to grad !! Schol though is often NOT interesting, unless you are like me,, she was NOT,,,, on this, love to learn ANY subject !! she excelled in math (as did I) and science (As did I) we both did NOT like English (Hey we SPeAK it,,, which is getting to be a MINORITY here,,, isnt that ENOUGH?). That was my HAPPY news for today.

My foot is NOT doing well,, the ulcer,, really should be seen again tomorrow,, I was just in the office on Thurs,,,, and have an appt next week. Its NASTY and I am GROSSED OUT OF IT !

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the LOVELY Card !! I got it today ! IMAGINE MY SURPRiSE as I SMILED a lot as I walked it upstairs,,, than when I opened it,,, SO PLEASED !! SO TY MUCHLY !! i'd LOVE to attend the party going on !! WOOHOOOO !!!

U are working a TON GAL !! How do you do this???? I had to STOP at only age 32 (I LOVED my job) it was like NOT working,, though I was in management,, I also would work the floor,, inbetween paper work time. I tried as HARD as I could to do so a lot,, as much as possible,,,, while making sure,, all ran very smoothly,, and I was kinda good at it,,, and cos of that,, we had one of the smallest stores,,, yet,, a lot from the corporate office would come in to see "how does she do this"? to me,, it was all math,,,, if I ran things on a clock schedule,, this needs to be done by such and such a time,, than this,, and that,,, it all worked out very smoothly and I'd be able to CUT hrs !! WOOHOOO they loved that I was saving them $$$$ !! I did NOT mind running a register when we were expecting a storm,,,, though I shouldn't of been per my title,, but, yet that only made those I worked over,, to respect me more,, and so they worked that much harder,, the more items a cashier would scan,,, the faster the store worked,,,, faster cust's got out usually with a smile, for I INSISTED all be treated with TOTAL Respect, and care !!! So we had tons of repeated business,,,, it was soo much FUN !!! yester when I went down to get some groc's,,,, I saw the personnel cord. She was like "What HAPPENED To YOU"??? I said "well you were RIGHT,, I could NOT continue to work Carol, this is #18". We stood and talked a bit,, had I of stayed,,, I would of been there for 26 yrs,, which by then,, with more college classes,, degrees,,, I WANTED to AIM to be the store manager ! WOOHOOO !!! but that didn't work out,, and being disabled,, isn't ALL that bad. :) It given me time to work on my arts.,, to explore myself in ways I would not of,, to find courage to make the best of it. I wish we could help all on the team,, who are disabled,, to find that courage,, there's someone I am rather concerned about (Sorry can't say who),, but til they learn to love,, and respect themselves,, there's nothing I can do, but be encouraging,, which is often mistaken,, cos one when isn't well,, they take all positives and turn them into negatvies,, so SAD !!!

See ya in the "DAWG HOUSE" !! WOOF WOoF !! we DESERVE some T BONE STEAK GAL !!! #1 FINALLY on the Landing, and I THINK for week #4,,,, ,we also ended up being #1 on Fri,, whereas on the Landing we were # 4 ! YIKERS !

emoticon !! HI Mary !! The SCALE For you is again GOIND DOWN !!

What did you change around hon? For this is PAWSOME AWESOME ! NOT always "EASY" to do, but feels soooo GREAT huh?

FOr week #4, we are AGAIN doing the "LOST A LB" and I've asked Carrol to please put out an Email for ALL who have made it (and I need to add or very close) !! WOOHOOO GIRL !! ur doing so MUCH better !! SO HAPPY For you !!

Hey,, did you get a bad T storm today? LOL I got a call from a friend in northern CA, to WARN ME,,, there's one approaching our area !! LOL HOW FUNNY !!!! She can't be ANY FURTHER AWAY than I am,, and calls to warn me !! LOL LOL LOL !!

All I can do is shut off the AC (its a portable) and if the storm is severe unplug it,,, otherwise I FOOLISHLY leave it in,, for ALL it takes is for the building to be HIT ! AND IT HAS BEEN when I lived here back about 12 yrs ago,, and at that time,, I had shut OFF my puter,,, but I DID NOT unplug it,,, sure enough the modem and the board got FRIED TO DEATH when the building took a direct HIT !! We are the HIGHEST point in the area,,, us and a cross across the street,, so it's gonna hit one or the other. We are higher than most trees also. My friend Teah lives on the top floor,, I WISH I DiD !!!! I am only on the 2nd which is GREAT should there be an emergency,, and I can't get down. The firemen will find me RIGHT OFF !! We've been told "if it's safe, go out into the hallway stairwell,, and wait,, we WILL FIND YOU !" and if it's NOT Safe,,, "hang something out the window,,, and STAY LOW" ! High rise living,, hmmm INTERESTING !
