Huge {{{{hugs}}}}! I'm so sorry. It's not fun but an unavoidable part of life.

Morning!

Going to a different podiatrist today. The other one lost a doc in their practice and had me wait 45 minutes last time, plus he never explains anything to me. He's just way too busy. He also screwed up my insert orthotic last time and now my heel also hurts. Sheesh!

We watched Lincoln last night. The verbiage kept throwing me off. It was interesting. Daniel Day-Lewis was Fab as always!

Em, good luck to Roy today! Hope E gets some good news for a change.

Shari, I hope you can get some relief. PF is a *****. You might ask about PT. Sometimes tight hamstrings make it worse. (((Hugs))). Thanks for the shout out.

Emma, I was looking at the old thread for new posts. So things in CA are good, but my brain is not fully engaged. It's okay. If it were, I would just come up with a diabolical scheme to takeover the world.

Yvonne, (((Hugs)))

Joyce, I have no idea what I was about to say. Love you!

I am not doing windows today, but I need to go tidy. L has a nasty cold. Fun start to summer.

I see they are digging for Jimmy Hoffa again. Really? I don't think they are ever going to find him.

Shari, hope the new doc is more responsive. I know they are busy but it really gets to be annoying.

They should check my MIL's pantry.

I don't think they'll ever find him either.

My MIL is notorious for a messy pantry. She used to say, "It's in the pantry" no matter what you asked for. One day, I replied "I'm sure it is! I wouldn't be surprised if Jimmy Hoffa is in your pantry!"

I need lunch also. I am waiting patiently though for the orthodontist to call back. Em has a wire out and she needs it fixed. Gary scratched his eye and finds it very hard to drive, so I need to leave work if they can get her in. UGH!

Prayers or good thoughts for my niece who is going through a divorce. She just found out that her unemployment is exhausted - she was never given any warning. SO she needs to find a job asap. I told her to go to temp agencies. She just moved into an apartment and was getting settled.

Oh, geez, Yvonne! That really bites (about your niece). Praying she finds something very, very soon!

And that the ortho can work Em in at a time that doesn't disrupt your schedule too much!

Yvonne! You need a wife. lol!

Sorry about Gary's eye. I've had a scratched cornea before. It was very painful.

I hadn't heard that your niece lost her job, I'm sorry to hear that.

Thanks, Lisa! I will tell her.

I found a janitorial job that starts out at $9 an hour - gave her that information.

Holy smokes!!! Just had a storm pass through-HIGH winds (beat the heck out of my hanging flowers) and a little hail and of course rain. (The windows that I washed this morning are all wet! So much for that job.)

The storm is headed towards Birch Run/Clio so I don't know if it will "hit" near Lorien or not.

On a brighter note it is now calm and I have gotten bedding and rugs washed so those chores were worth it!

Yvonne-prayers for your niece! Hope things work out for her. And {{{HUGS}}} for you-sorry you keep being put in tense situations! No fun.

Good luck to Roy-hope all goes well with his presentation and also that his flights are smooth!

Emma-you and Nikki have been cleaning machines!!! You'll have to split the WW Knickers.

TV5 is saying the storm is moving at 40mph with winds up to 70mph. Bunch of folks in Midland and Saginaw without power.

Tornado sirens went off too!

Wow, Susie! That's scary weather! I should check the weather here. It's sunny right now, but earlier they predicted a chance of storms for late today.

I have to share, again, how blessed I am.

At the end of the month, I am riding with my BIL to take FIL to SD. 20 hour trip, straight through. I didn't really have a way home without buying a plane ticket (a $500+ expense that we weren't planning for.) Today, the pastor and his wife gifted me with a ticket, using their airline miles. Because it's the holiday week, the fee is $80 (instead of $5) and I'm flying home at 5:45 AM on Thursday (which is like 7:45 at home) but I am so touched! Paying $80 for a $500 ticket is very, very doable. AND, if I'd been able to come home the next week, it would only have been $5! Sadly, I have to work.

Apparently, this has been my year to be on the receiving end of kindnesses. It makes me all the more determined to be the giver whenever I can.

Anyway, after all the "gimme, gimme, gimme" I've been dealing with, this has just been a huge blessing. And I thought it might warm your hearts, too!
