I worked 9AM-8:30PM again today- it is nuts there, and another one of our nurses is going to be leaving in 2 weeks. We have 2 out on maternity leave, one had a mastectomy and one out this week sick. They decided to offer a bonus $25 for 4 hours for anyone who can help with extra shifts.

Have a nice safe and warm weekend....! We had snow today- and hear it is even going to snow south of us..... May even get cold in Texas...!

Shelly
Is that $25 an hour for 4 hours or $100? I don't think that $25 for 4 hours would be worth it to me. Sounds like you do need some help with everyone out.

Good luck to Stephi in the CC race this weekend. That's going to be cold.

Glad to hear that Brian is recovering nicely. He'll be up and around and wolfing down the food soon enough.

It is very cold in Texas although I am not there. We were supposed to have a freeze last night. I prepared for the kitties before I left, but didn't do anything for the plants so I'll see how they managed when I get back.

The plan has changed slightly. My SIL is not coming home from Boston. He is flying to SLC today so he can go be with his family by his grandmother's bedside. Not sure if I mentioned that she is 90 and had a stroke Wednesday after I got here. She said that she would not have any kind of medication to reverse it or to keep her alive. She's ready to go. Last night they said she was running a fever and they have no idea how much longer she will hang on. If she passes over the weekend, they are ready to have her funeral on Monday. If she doesn't, then no telling how things will work out since my SIL has to fly out to Florida for business. It's too bad that he's going to miss my DGD's play, but it's important for him to be there especially since he's the oldest grand child and the others all look to him to be the leader.

My daughter (17) has a cast party for the Opera (til 3 am!) then has to be up by 5 am to do a 5K Zoo Run - also set/up tear down for her Nat'l Honor Society group. That's just crazy - even with coffee, no way could I function/run on 2 hours of sleep!

We also have on Saturday my son's Odyssey program competition (something w/ robotics!), and then later we scoot across town to prep for the upcoming Science fair set up for Monday. He was put in charge of bottle rocket. And at some point, we have to go up to the next county to pick up his popcorn sales from Boy Scouts.

Sunday we have to get the youth ministry set up 2 hours earlier before services to get the food drive underway and packed up. And that's only what I know about - my daughters LOVE to tell me "oh I have to be here and there and everywhere .... like in 10 minutes!" ugh.

And if anyone tells you make up can hide a shiner, they fibbed!!!!!! You should see the looks I'm getting. Seriously. It's a black eye. I need to wear an eye patch - tee hee!

I'll take your "W" Kristie! I miss it!!!! I really do - I grew up in Europe with cruel, bitter winters and for some reason, it just resonates in my soul - I'm not a hot weather year round Florida girl and really want to book it out of here. Sadly, my dh cannot leave so I just dream

Shel, GREAT news!! Glad Brian is recovering!

Waving hi to Maggie in Cali! And everyone! *Muah!*
Kelly, you are just like the Energizer Bunny - you just keep going and going and going!

Sorry about the shiner. The nurses used to tell me when I'd get a hematoma to put hot packs on it to bring the blood to the surface of the skin so it can dissipate and you'll get over it quicker. I have also been told if you put olive oil on a bruise right away that it will heal a lot quicker too.

Shelly, glad to hear that Brian is doing well. Good luck to Stephi today and hope you all stay warm!

Maggie, so sorry your SIL will miss DGD's play. It sounds like he will be where he needs to be though.

Not much going on here...I should be cleaning or crafting but I'm goofing off for now.

Yes, he is, and we got word last evening that his Gram did pass away with her family there at her bedside. Even my other DGD was able to be there since she and her DH live in Provo. My DD and DGD here will also be flying out today to go to the funeral tomorrow. She needs to find a boarder for the dog though. My flight leaves about 2:45 this afternoon, but I won't be home until after 8 with the time change.

Happy Sunday Afternoon.

We got about 2 inches of snow last night and yes, there is snow on the turkey pumpkin on our steps.

Maggie I hope you had a good trip back - sorry to hear your trip was somewhat subdued due to the death - so glad you did get to see your DGD singing.

Good to hear Brian is on the mend Shelly

We have had a scare with out cat's health - not eating but drinking, and then he vomited. Took him to the vet and he spent the day there, is home now and eating, and we are waiting on the blood tests to see if they show what is happening. .

Waving to you all, and hugs.

Good Morning, girls!



I hope your kitty is better, Maxine! And that it's nothing serious.

And Maxine, hugs to you and you are right, it's probably a good thing your BIL (?) was together with grandma as those are the moments you can't ever get back ~ sad it is it but the memory of being there will always with with them. I'm sure your DGD was amazing in her play ♥

Had a bit of a bug this weekend - hit me Saturday night just as my dd15 was hit with it an hour before! My dh was juggling taking care of daughter and wife, lol, but I bounced back in a few hours - fastest moving semi-flu ever. By Sunday morning, I was beat up though so we stayed home and he took ds out to where he needed to be. Dd was still going at it sickwise - and even now is home from school looking like something awful (since Friday night) I hope she's the last one because I'm done with this flu! Windows are open, house is bleached down (more than usual) and Lysol is everywhere!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We did and the Badgers as well as the Packers both had great games and outstanding wins! We did get some snow Saturday night and we also had flurries all day yesterday. It is still on the ground this morning and we are not going to have temps above freezing until next Saturday.

I hope you had a great Monday and a start to a new week!

Good Morning Fellow Stamps Addicts!




I had a GREAT trip - it was AMAZING, in fact!

I'm so far behind now, though. I did read (quickly) the thread and seems there is a lot going on in this little group. WOW!

Lynn, try to stay warm – which might mean staying home. LOL! It was cold in Nashville, and I returned home to sleet – and then we had snow last night. Yikes! I want summer back!

Barb, congratulations on the new role! Awesome news!

Kelly, I’m so sorry to hear of your DD’s migraines. OUCH! Hmmmmmm… did the little man get to go to jail? Did someone bail him out??? LOL! Gotta love little guys! Hopefully the math situation will soon be much MUCH improved! I'm sorry you and your DD had a bug this weekend. (((HUGS)))

Maxine, I’m sorry you had a rough day. Praying things are much better now! And I'm sorry to hear of your furry family member's health situation.

Kristie, I’m glad the surgeon was able to get all the cancer. Will continue to pray for your mom… I’m sure it’s very stressful talking with all these specialists and figuring out what to do now. And THANK YOU for helping me put “my forest” into perspective. I was actually feeling very bad that we’ll only have a measly 6 trees or so this year (I usually put up well over 20, the most I’ve ever done is 43 – which BTW is why I chose the name “Forest Ranger”). Six will be fine! You’ve helped me to see that!

Maggie, you said, “A bad teacher can have repercussions for years to come.” I totally agree. My oldest DS had a bad teacher in Kindergarten…… and that situation carried with him all through school. He NEVER learned to like school…… and his self-confidence suffered tremendously. It was horrible! I so often wish we had pulled him from school that year – early in the year – and waited to send him the next year with a different teacher. I think it would have made a world of difference in his life – even to this day. I’m sorry your SIL’s family lost a beloved grandmother and he had to miss your DGD’s play. So sad on all accounts.

Shelly, I am so glad to hear the progress that Brian is making! I’m continuing to pray! I’m sorry you’re so short-staffed at work. Hopefully the bonus they are offering will improve moral as people work those long shifts!

Looks pretty, but so glad it's not down here. We have the cold into the 30's at night and to get to 50 today.

The return trip went very well. I was sitting in the row in front of Isaac White - member of the Harlem Globetrotters. The man sitting right behind me was involved in basketball and struck up a conversation with him even though he didn't know at first who he was. They just talked basketball most of the way back. The man was kind of loud so I heard everything that they said. Tried to tune it out so I could read. It wasn't until the flight was almost over that he asked him what his name was. When we arrived, I actually spoke to him some. Just minor chit chat and I didn't ask him for his autograph. The flight was good. Not completely full so I had an empty middle seat by me. The guy at the window was a young oriental and he either slept or watched undersea documentaries on his iPhone. The shuttle was waiting when I got out of the airport. The weather was icky - misting and cold. Got home about 9 and spent some time with the kitties before going to bed. Still haven't unpacked yet.

Thanks, it was good in spite of the death.

I think that was Kelly's DD that was singing in the Opera. This trip my DGD was in a drama play - The Government Inspector. She played the School Principal and did a great job with her part. It is a comedy.

Sorry that your kitty is sick. I hope it's nothing serious.

Not Maxine, but yes it was good that my SIL was able to be with his family in SLC this weekend so they could support each other through this sad time. Yes, she was fabulous. I didn't know anything about the play before seeing it. I takes place in 1836 in Russia. It had some great comedic lines in it.

Sorry you got sick, but so glad that it didn't last long for you. Hope your DD gets well soon.

Maggie, that's wonderful - surrounded by family is important Im' sorry I can't get it straight - you said he but wrote SIL - I thought that stood for Sister in Law? Does it mean something else that I don't know?

And thanks - I feel VERY weak today - but nothing compaired to my dd19 last week, ds the weekend before and dd15 this weekend - it appears to have a 2 week incubation period before it hits, lol.

*warning. Do not visit my house!*

No problem Kelly. It is sister-in-law, but when talking about my DD, it's son-in-law. It was his grandmother that passed away.

I hope that it's all over at your house now and won't come back again.

The play your DGD is in sounds interesting! I was not overly impressed with the choice of the Opera this year - not quite comfortable with that whole selling your soul to the devil thing and making it entertainment but dd was marvelous, I have to give props - she can adapt to anything and be anyone on stage - from a shy, crying, quiet little girl to one who loves to be on stage, go figure. She still suffers from stagefright, too - every. single. time. yet you wouldn't know it!

LOL on your flight home - sounds like you got some basketball talk in! I dont' know a thing about Basketball, I would have been so lost but I did grow up watching the Harlem Globetrotters I try to always get an aisle seat if I can chose - too many trips to the potty! LOL!!

She chose her songs for All-State (required Aria pieces, two in Italian and 1 in French, I think?) along with something else - she was chosen to be in the exclusive Reading Choir and was over the moon! Apparently it's with some big composer. I have no idea what it means or why she was so excited, lol, but I'm happy for her She also chose her pieces for Federation in March - another big singing competition in Jacksonville, FL.
Both of her 'choice' songs are from musicals and the second she got to the chorus I was already bawling my eyes out. She can evoke such feeling as she sings with so much passion.

I'm super worried and nervous about her college auditions coming up in the first of the year. I'm not ready.

Default Hi

Hello lots of prayers of Thanksgiving for us- Brian was doing so well yesterday, he was discharged to go home. The doc said normally they would keep him an additional day, but Cinci had a snowstorm on the way, so they were sending everyone home that they thought would be OK..... They got 4 inches of snow by noon today! I used to live there, and it is huge pain when it snows because of all of the hills.....
Again, thanks for all of your prayers- much appreciated!

And, Stephi did well at her NIRCA Cross Country race- she placed 4th out of 500 runners : ) Her team is so awesome- she lost it and cried a little bit- her last race with them-ever- for Cross Coutry. The girls also won 3rd for the Team for the A group (faster kids) place the meet-so they got a trophy.

Our hotel was nice- there was a big CTMH crop going on- so I stuck my head in the door and someone grabbed me and I got the grand tour. I have never done a Scrap/cardmaking weekend- but it looked like a blast!

Maggie- glad you had a good trip- sorry about your SIL loosing his G-mother. SO fun to hear the play was good. I also bought the clothes class, but started with hair. I am not getting too far on the class, but should get to it! Yes, the bonus is $25/4 hours and you are right- really need to think about that- not much of an incentive to come in extra......

Maxine- hope the cat is OK- hope you get some down time to be creative at home. Rainy days mean indoor fun for the kids : ) And, flowers to follow!

Jeanette- hehehe any hitchhiking? Please tell. Glad your weekend went well. So, along with the snow, did the church OK the furnace? We got cold, really cold here- windy and flurries, but no snow accumulation.

Kelly- hope the new med works for your daughter and her headaches! And, hope the math clicks with your DD. That happened to me Junior year- whoa- I was so lost...funny thing, when I took the GRE's, math was my highest score....! Hoping the flu is done there and that you feel more energetic soon.

Lynn- what are you up to? Sounds like you are staying out of trouble anyway, and just trying to keep warm. No more home improvement projects? Is the bathroom totally done?

Kristie- sound like my day today- I had alot planned, and have accomplished nothing other than piano lessons. I am working on Christmas music and have graduated from the 1st two songs. I'll keep your mom in praers yet- when do you go to Disney- soon I think : )

Darlene- so fun to see you dropping in- glad you had some time in your crafting room.
Waving hi to everyone else.
Shelly

I really have been staying out of trouble!!! LOL! Yes, the bathroom is completed and is so much nicer now. I'm pretty sure we aged a few more years during all that, but hey.....we're aging anyway so guess it's ok! The project now is the craft room. I decided this weekend that either the washer and dryer were going to have to go or I was! LOL! Well, the washer and dryer are still here and so am I! I only have a tiny little area back there so tried moving a few things around and re-arranging. SO MUCH BETTER! Plus I was able to add a bookcase (tall) that Jim made a long time ago. Now I finally have some room. I have too many stamps and don't know what to do with all them! And I didn't even buy them! Almost all were given to me by the gal that got me started in all this - two 30 gallon trash bags FULL! Right now they're stacked in some of the plastic bin drawers but never know what I have. I found things today that I don't even know why I have them too. Does anyone else have this problem.....or a solution!!!?

Sounds like everyone is doing good around here. Maggie that's exciting sitting close to Isaac White. I love watching the Globetrotters - but think they were so much funnier when I was younger. Maxine, hope the kitty is feeling better now. Shelly, congrats to Stephi and glad Brian is home. Jeanette, so.........did you have to hitch? Barb, snow sounds like fun - if you're 10 years old and want to build a snowman! LOL! I'd still love to see some though. Kelly, no way could I even begin to keep the pace you are! Mercy!!!!! Kristi, Kel, Darlene - and who ever else.......waving hi!

Still cold here but warming up a little. I'm ready for SPRING!!!

Good Morning, lovelies!

So many of you with wind and snow! Ready for Spring, Lynn - nooooooooo, I want winter! Maybe this year we will be blessed to see snow - I hope! Crossing my fingers!

Steph, I saw that on FB - 4th out of 500! AMAZING!! That's great your GRE's were strong in math, especially for nursing, right! I'm glad Brian is home and resting - that's usually where we feel most comfortable. Scary about the hills and snow and black ice - super scary to drive on!

Lynn, so you didn't move the washer and dryer and you added a bookcase - that's some managing of space ~ WTG!

Waving to everyone - have some very, very late cards to finish up so I'll scoot and wave to all! ♥

Good Morning (barely - SHEESH!) Fellow Stamp Addicts!




We had internet problems this morning, hence my tardiness in arriving to SCS. And now I'm rushing through since I need to run some errands and it is already mid-day. Yikes!

Wonderful to hear the update on Brian! So glad he's home recuperating now!

Kelly, praying the next 2 week incubation doesn't affect any of your family members. (((HUGS)))

To answer a few questions...

Yes, the church approved the furnace (I wasn't worried). It has been ordered and should be delivered to the furnace guy either today or tomorrow. But he is swamped with work and it may be another week or more before he can install it; up to a potential 2 weeks. We're okay though - so far this one is hanging in there. I just would LOVE for it to be installed before DH leaves for Israel - 12 days from now.

My travels - well.... the Exec had rented an SUV. It was a 7-seater and there were 7 of us going.............. but she didn't think about the suitcases. LOL! When I met them an hour from my home, the vehicle had 6 of us and barely fit our luggage. I tried to get her to let me drive my car, too. She wouldn't. Felt sure we could squeeze the 7th one in when we got to our next stop. An hour down the road... 7th member and her suitcase would NOT fit............... so we took her car, too. I giggled!

Good Afternoon--I too am late in posting today. We did not have internet early this morning and then all of the cable went out around 8:30. It is amazing how much I depend on it and realize that when it is out......................... I finished a swap this morning and package it up. Then, I had a dentist appointment at 11:30 and had a few errands after that. I am heading back to the stamp room to work on a DT card.

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

Hello Stamp Addicts!!!!!

Shelly, great news about Brian. So glad that he is doing well and able to go home. Yikes on the snow! So glad that I'm not there.

Great news about Stephi. She's really getting up there. Maybe another year she'll be placing in the top 3! That's great that her team won 3rd place trophy.

I didn't get very far on the class. I read over some of the lessons and looked at everything, but since I didn't have the exercise sheets printed off, I couldn't do much. I need to get that taken care of. I have some other classes that I got on different issues that I need to go through too. They are from Simply Betty Stamps. I have 12 - one a month for a year. I don't think I would work 4 extra hours for only $25. Not worth it.

Lynn, glad that you were able to rearrange things in your stamping area to give you more breathing room. LOL! I have things in my drawers and on shelves that I completely forget about. Every time I start to make a card, I have to sit and think about what all I have to see if there is something that I want to use. Some time ago I bought a lot of stamps from Simply Betty Stamps and I have a ton of those that I've not touched yet.

Yes, I read on the Internet the other day - The best thing about Winter - Is when it's OVER! I hate the cold.

OH, so funny Jeanette, but probably not for the poor #7 person who had to drive her own car. Did someone go and ride with her so she wouldn't have to go alone?

Glad to hear that they approved the furnace and yes, they need to get it installed ASAP. You never know when yours may die for good on you.

What is everyone doing for Thanksgiving this year? Our Thanksgiving will be somewhat subdued. I'm not sure my BIL will be home from the hospital by then. Yes, he went in yesterday. I talked to my sis yesterday morning to see if she needed anything from the grocery store, and she said that he was having issues with swallowing and was choking sometimes when he ate or drank. The doctors wanted him to go for a test and then somewhere else for a blood test. My sis told them that he wasn't up to all that running back and forth to different places, so they told her to take him up to the hospital and they would do all the tests there. So she did. She called me last night to say that he had pneumonia, sepsis, and maybe a urinary tract infection. He was having difficulty breathing and they said that if his breathing didn't get better then his heart could suffer from exhaustion, so they put him in a medically induced coma so his body would rest while the meds were working to clear up all the issues. They weren't sure how long that would be for. They did tell her that they would ease back on the drugs keeping him under so that he would be kind of aware, but not fully awake.

My DD went over to the hospital earlier today and said that he was kind of alert, opened his eyes sometimes, knew who she was, and even held her hand for a little bit. So that was good news. This is going to be very hard on my girls - even more so than when their dad passed because their uncle was a lot closer to them than their dad ever was. We are hoping for better news in the coming days. I'm planning to go over there after work and see how things are going. Prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Hope you all are staying warm and doing well.

Shelly--great news on Brian.

Maggie--sending healing thoughts to your family.

Lynn--way to go on making more room.

Thanksgiving--we head to my brothers house about 40 miles away on Thursday. Then, on Friday we head to Chicago for roomies family. Friday dinner at one nephew's house and then brunch on Saturday at another nephew that lives in Glen Ellyn. We come home Saturday night and I start the Christmas transformation on Sunday. It takes all week to get everything done--main tree is 10 feet tall, plus another 15 or so decorated trees 2-5 feet tall. Yes, we love Christmas! We have a holiday cocktail party on the first Saturday, so it all has to be done by then!

Thanks Barb. I went over to the hospital tonight, but got there about 6:45. They close the ICU between 6:30 and 8 morning and evening for shift change, so I didn't get a chance to see my BIL. I couldn't wait around that long. I'll try again tomorrow night, only I'll go right from work and then I'll leave at 6:30.

Wow, that's a lot of trees. Do you have themes for them?

Maggie I will be praying for you and your family.

Shelly great to hear Brian is doing well

Life here is still hectic, but the cat is doing well - no treatment but he has perked up wonderfully and is eating well - one test came back marginal, so they are retesting again in 10 days or so to see if it has settled. We don't really know what upset him so badly.

We are off to the eye clinic again tomorrow so may not get here...

Waving to you all, and thanks to all of you who have commented on my blog. I have just announced some exciting news there

Good morning Maxine - Thanks for the prayers. We are all grateful. He is doing better. I saw on FB this morning that they do not want anyone except immediate family to visit him and only 2 at a time so I guess I won't go by there tonight after work. I need to call my sis today and check in with her.

So glad to hear that kitty is doing better. I hope that he continues to improve.

Good luck with the eye clinic appointment. Hope that goes well.

Hmm.. . I visited blogs the other day, but must go check out your news.

Good CHILLY morning! 60's here and dropping - traded in my flip flops for my UGGS - love love love this chill!!!!!!!!! ♥

Hugs to all the sick fur babies and peoples

My son had his honor roll assembly this am - Superior Straight A's in a new school, new grade, new everything. Very proud mommy Tonight is the big Science Fair - that should be super wild and fun!

Well, I have to let a cat out of the bag!

We are going to Tennessee for Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My dh and I planned this trip back in August and have not told the kids, except for our oldest as she will have to take a day off of work. She is BEYOND excited!!!!!!!!!! SHe wants to move there one day We rented a cabin and will be there during the week of Christmas - our first ever Cmas away from our home! I have much details to tell you all later about our plans for a tree, no gifts but homemade from the heart, etc. The kids are going to FLIP when they hear!!! They have no idea! My daughter will turn 18 on the road :*( THe day we drive up - but I'm sure it will be more than okay once we 'land'!

Now, question for you all ........... what would be a REALLY super wonderful exciting way to break the news to the youngest 3? I really want them to be surprised ♥ Any ideas? Anything you've done in the past? I bought super furry warm woooly socks and plan to give them each a pair in a gift bag - like clearly you woujldn't use snow socks in Miami, LOL! But that's so not fun to see them open a pair of socks and think 'Huh?'

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited! Of course, we are praying for snow!!! We see that it will be a quite warm winter again but maybe, just maybe, if we pray hard enough we will see a few flurries

Please let me know any ideas or something you've heard, seen a friend do, etc
At 10, 15, 17, it's kinda hard to surprise them anymore! LOL!

Hugs!

That sounds like so much fun Kelly. Where exactly in Tennessee are you going? Maybe that would give you an idea of how to "surprise" them.

Default Hello!

Monthly day for the cleaning ladies, so I am picking up and decided to procrastinate...... yep : )

Woke up to 30 degrees today- yeah- it is warming up! We were supposed to have snow on the ground, but there is none on the ground, yet.

Maggie- hope your brother in law responds well to the antibiotics and rest- sounds scary! I think if your sis needs support, still go to the hospital for her- she may feel great relief having support, even if just for a brief visit.

Maxine- will hop over today and hear your news.... Will it make me ??? Glad the kitty is better.

Jeanette- oh boy- did someone drive with person #7? Sometimes the best laid plans.....Glad the furnace was approved.

Kelly- Tennessee sounds like a blast for Christmas. I would give the kids little gifts for a couple of days- maybe a little ornament you make? Something Tenessee-ish- a bear maybe? Or a cabin with snow on the roof. A fish on a fishing pole? And on the final day, wool socks..... My kids- we took them to the city (Chicago) one Christmas-before Katie left for China). We get alot of ....No, lets do this instead when trying to plan, so we made hotel reservations and told the kids that, but everything we did was a surprise. We took them to Second City- went for brunch at the 95th (floor of the John Hancock- great view of the lake/city) etc.....and just told them we need to walk this was at 2PM..... Turned out great! No whining cause they did not know what to wine about!
Yeah for the honor roll!

Barb- Happy Wednesday to you too. Hope you are keeping warm! Glen Ellyn is the town just East of Wheaton where I live : )

Off to finish work- need to have a card made today and have o clue what I am going to make yet : ) I think I will color though- I have an image stamped out, so may as well use it.

Have a great day- keep warm!

Shelly

Fun stuff, Kelly! I suggest you find someone who has homing pigeons and have them deliver the message to your house (via homing pigeon, of course) and deliver a handmade card with a cabin in the woods with snow all around.

Shelly, yes we split up and rode in the two vehicles - 4 in the rented SUV and 3 in the nearly brand new Lexus. I rode in the Lexus on the way to Nashville. My DH told me not to get used to it. LOL!

Maggie, so sorry to hear about your brother in law. Hope he recovers soon.

Kelly, that's exciting about going to Tenn. for Christmas! It'd be neat if you could get all the kids a coonskin hat......LOL!!!! No idea where you'd find that in Miami - or anywhere else other than Tenn. for that matter! You'll think of something and make it a wonderful trip I'm sure.

Jeanette, glad you didn't have to hitchhike!!!

Shelly.....that's COLD!

Sounds a wonderful treat Kelly - and great surprise!!

The trip went well, but the appointment was not - turns out the DH's right eye, which has been stable for years, has suddenly started to deteriorate again . He was going to have an injection in both eyes, but the specialist said no as he is still on antibiotics from a chest infection.... so we are triple booked for next Thursday at 1:15p.m. at the eye clinic, and then have to go back up on the Friday for the plastic surgery clinic for a follow-up on the lump he had removed four weeks or so ago.

So not impressed, as we are approaching the 'camper-van' season, and they are so slow generally, but as soon as the road straightens or widens, they speed up and are difficult to pass. Ggggrrrrrrrr. Rant over.

Hey Jeanette - you ARE allowed to get used to the Lexus - just not covet it .

Thanks for the comments regarding my news - I am really happy that they asked me and totally out of the blue too!
