Lorien, so sorry. Shocker. Puts life in perspective.

Laura, I was awakened in the middle of the night with a rumbly tummy and was so tired I read that as the 6th C, not on the 6th. Best wishes and prayers.

What Debra said, Moe. Keep some energy and time for yourself. It's essential for your mental health.

Sorry about the throat cancer, not about re-training the listening impaired.

Lorien, I think you should be training ME, I'd get it first time LOL

Debra, isn't that a great idea (to film J's tantrum?). Laura is so smart.

Hey, Laura, sorry it's all on top of you right now. I love you. I wish I lived closer .... CA is just a little bit too far away!

Good morning, Minglers!

Tired, tired, tired.... I think snooze alarms need to be hard-wired to stop working after the 3rd or 4th "snooze". Just keep buzzing until you get up and turn off the alarm.

How is everyone today?

Nice of your boss! She sure knows how to motivate people.

Good luck with the application! Wouldn't that be something if you got offered the job!? *fingers crossed*

I'm glad that was all that was going on. And I'm so glad you don't work in ER anymore!

Allergies can be such a hard thing to track down. Poor Em. Hope that you can figure out what things to avoid so that she doesn't have trouble.

I love that you recognize the big things. But don't discount your feelings. Regardless of the rest of the situation, they are yours and they are valid. To not express them is a disservice to you both. That said, always remember that feelings can "lie" and to evaluate them very closely before acting on them (which I'm sure you did before you spoke to J.) That's just my standard "feelings" speech!

Oh, my word! Poor man! I totally understand him being snarly at that schedule! Still, I don't have to put up with the snarliness.

You are very sweet! I'm glad that he loves his job. Still, like Debra said, overtime is hard on living life.

Yvonne, Emily may be allergic to MSG. It is in almost every type of premade Ranch dressing, and it would explain why she could sometimes tolerate dairy rich pizza. It is in a lot of processed foods. Just something to think about.
Oh! Very helpful! I would not have known that!

Hmmm... I'm learning so much about food allergies today!

Hope that helps with J, Debra!

So mean and unnecessary. Poor L. She gets the brunt of A's anger most of the time and it's not pretty.

Check out the videos and pictures on FB.

I saw your reply Emma (to bro's GF comment about my Dad).
I'm glad she wrote it, but there is so much behind the scene... Example: they have known since June 1st (we met & I gave both bros a calendar, so they knew when we're going camping, as well as other important dates) they got our Dad at 2:30 on Wednesday...I get a voicemail on Thurs morning from Bro GF that they both had to work all day, and they'd be leaving my Dad alone (completely ignoring a visiting nurse we scheduled for Thurs) I not know yet if visiting nurse ever did get to see my Dad.
We have his follow up with the heart surgeon in Ann Arbor tomorrow. Apparently Dad told Bros GF that he'd be released to to back home tomorrow... I am going to have to be evil (in my Dads eyes) and tell the surgeon he is not capable to drive/live alone yet. I'm not sure if the Dr. Can do more than suggest it??? My Dad is gonna be mad... More to story... TMI for here

Well I read back a bit, sorry I didn't comment on much... Still <3 ya all, even if I didnt comment much.

Exhausted! We did get to have lunch with Michelle and her DH today... Bright spot in my week... Then drove 3 1/2 hours across the state.
Time for bed... Long drive tomorrow (1 1/2 hr to Ann Arbor)

Be back as soon as possible... Don't forget me
We enjoyed it, too! Wish we could do it more than once per year!

And glad that you made it home safely.

Shari (((Hugs))) That is so hard and frustrating. A few months ago I recorded C having a meltdown. Then I showed it to him several hours later when he was calm. He was a bit mortified. Now when I see him start to escalate, I give him a few calm down idea suggestions; and if that doesn't work, I tell him I could record him stomping his foot and pitching a fit. The boy apparently does have some shame, because it has worked more than once.

Lorien, I hope you find your towels.

Sorry about all the grouchies.
That's really rather brilliant! I suspect our kids don't WANT to be like that, they just don't always have the mechanisms in place or functional to stop it. Sadly, I know a few adults with the same problem.

By strong I mean cry in the shower, pout when you're alone, and then put your beech bra on and when you face your siblings, works for me.
Sounds like strong for a lot of women!

I dreamed that I was sobbing about something last night. No idea what, now that I look back on it, but this comment brought the memory back. I wonder what it was?

Very sad. I pray that the treatment is successful!

As for retraining, well, I have nothing to say....

Well, we have thought about videotaping her before. Mainly to show the 'professionals' when they don't believe us!! She's such an amazing child, it hurts to know she has these wiring issues, kwim? It would be interesting to see how she reacts seeing herself like that.

All caught up.

The shower was lovely. Small turnout but my mom said that my SIL didn't know about the shower. Weird because I remember sending an invitation. Wonder how many other invites didn't get received? I guess I can't worry about it.

Enjoyed meeting up with Moe yesterday. Always good to see her, Brian and the kids.

We went to Menards on Sat. night to buy materials for the pantry remodel. We are doing it "on the cheap" (mismatched shelves, mostly) and it will still cost about $250 for a 4x6 room. Still, I am happy to think about how much more organized it will be!

Finally, Jay's dad is not doing well. We spoke with my niece last night and she said it is likely a matter of days. Dad is sleeping most of the time and eating/drinking very little. His pain meds have been doubled to keep the pain under control. Overall, when the end comes, I just pray that it is quick and peaceful. I'd love for him to go to sleep and just not wake up. Hard on Jay but he is as ready as he can be for the end to come.

I love when they discount what the parents tell them. Oy....

Lettuce wraps for lunch. I had a ton of chicken salad left from the shower. Didn't want to mess with bread or croissants and my friend gave me some lovely leaf lettuce from her garden.

Crumble for dessert. I actually brought some in to both pastors today, just to help get it out of my house!

Michelle, I'd trade you for my frozen pizza. Although I do have pie...

Lisa, if we were closer, we could meet up and share!

What kind of pie?
