Jim is here, quizing me on what we need to ge,t food wise, what else we need to get for DS and DDIL, what are we having for Christmas Dinner. Ha! Does he not understnad that my mind is gone?? I can't even come up with these answers, right now. He had me make a list. Then, said it doesn't make sense to him. DUH!! . I am giving some lottery tickets to DS and DDIL. Who knows some quick picks daily tickets pay well.
Going to bed. Pillows can't ask me questions.
So hare is my plans for the next 100hrs or so. Three more days of work at school. To iChat I need to make more toffee, some Cuban lunches and chocolate pleaders. Oh yeah and cheesecake bars. Now tomorrow after work is my haircut, then packing gifts for the teachers I work with as I am an education support worker. I also need to finish cleaning the house put up some decorations wrap gifts and sleep! Saturday, the boys come. Oh yeah we need to drive four hours to Winnipeg to pick up DS1 and be back here on time to greet DS2 and DIL. No decorations as we are getting ready to put wood floors down. Oh we'll this too will come and pass! Life would be boring otherwise...hihihi.;-)

CC, I have to say I think your posts are worthy of a reality tv program! I am truly serious when I say you must be made of Teflon to have all the stuff slide off you daily. Do you howl at th moon or scream in the woods in secret??...
between you and Sukochi I M always cracking up laughing. God bless both of you for making life a lot more fun.
vivian, i am so sorry to hear that you and your husband are separating. that man must be nuts to let a treasure like you go.

What a day.
I'm sorry for having to vent a lot lately. I feel like Eyeore lately. The holidays bring out the worst in me. Next year I want that to not happen because even I don't want to be around myself.
I made it through my day, God is still God and I am still a masterpiece in the making.
God bless and good night y'all
Brandy:I made it through my day, God is still God and I am still a masterpiece in the making.
I love this sentence. I've never heard it put this way before. I must have really need to read this post today. I have been making some aprons and hot pads for my sister for Christmas. I need the batting with the heat resistance in it. I know I have two packages of it and one package of just the heat resistance fabric. Do you think I could find any of it? I have torn my sewing room about and been looking for it all afternoon. Still no luck. I am going to get some sleep and try again tomorrow. Any single mother needs extra of God's blessings. So God bless you too. I raised 2 boys and a girl by myself, so I know how rough it can be. Just enjoy your holidays and spend extra time with your little one. God bless you both.

Oh CC, I dropped a couple of pieces of laminate flooring on my leg before halloween, it hurt like ol' Billy Heck. I developed a very large blood blister on the leg that took 3 weeks before it broke finally and Doc told me to keep antibiotic ointment on it, but it wasn't healing or getting any smaller, so I made an appointment at the wound care center and now I have a whole regimen to follow, including keeping my leg above my heart level as much as possible,washing and dressing it 2ce a day after scrubbing it with a wound care brush,( read that as tooth brush). Then after dressing it I have to put a compressive bandage on it. Really resticts what I can do. Ginny
Nan, enjoy your time in Hawaii you lucky gal! How long will you be there?
Thankyou all for the support, I can't begin to tell you how comforting it is. It was our decision not just mine so I have to remember, in the middle of the night when I cán't sleep because I'm lonely and sad, that if he was here I'd probably want to punch him. I can manage fine during the day, I only have momentary little breakdowns but the reality is, we can''t breath the same air. that being said, I'm not fliling for 6 months and actually, I've decided not to file at all. He wants the divorce, he can do the work and file. I am hoping that time and therapy will put us on the right track again. Doubtful, but hopeful.
I am awake and it is another day! It is extremely cold here - temp says 32 but with a 50 kt wind out there I think it feels more like 10...DH dressed very warmly as he left to go to work. I feel for him as I sit here in my cozy comfy chair with my electric fireplace glowing in front of me as it sends waves of warm air out into the room... poor hubby! I do remember all those days in Japan when I got up and he stayed in that warm cozy bed...hmmmm paybacks are a - well you know what...teehee...
Vivian my heart goes out to you - and yep if he wants the divorce - let him pay for it - just sit back and relax - get yourself a dog or kitty to cuddle with - and a can to kick around the house to get rid of your frustrations. It will get easier as the days go by. I was not married to my 1st husband as long as you have been married but it did get easier each day that we were apart. I feel for you though as I put distance - lots of distance between us - joined the AF and left town...teehee... wish you were young enough to do that? Don't - they send you to scary places these days!
I started finishing up Rita's quilt yesterday - I have all the vertical and horizontal rows done and now am working on the stippling I am doing around all the dog blocks. It is starting to feel like a quilt - It went from fluffy to flat in no time. I am taking it easy though as I don't want my chest to start hurting again. Did I tell you my heart doctor on the last visit thinks he has it figured out! He did a chest x-ray and my ribs are riddled with RA - and he said when the joints in the rib cage get enflamed that that is when I am having all the pain - so I have to be careful not to stress the chest muscles - and that for me is what quilting the quilts does... so no 8 hours at the machine trying to quilt one - I did 2 hour periods and left it for something else - Last night I worked on it through the latest bat man movie and boy was that movie good - best one I have watched - loved the ending... so ready now for another one - come on Robin...teehee
Well, going to get up and get a pop tart and eat it while I watch the programs that I tivod last night... and relax in my comfy cozy chair till my body wakes up completely and says - okay - you can get up and sew now! teehee... plus I have to redo the kitchen floor - I saw puddie paw marks where they had walked before it dried...argh!!! that is okay though - I have that and laundry to do - and maybe a sprucing of vacuuming on the floor in here - that is all the housework that needs to be done so it is awesome...
Have a great last day of the earth!!! and as I read on facebook - all those who think the world is ending tomorrow can drop all their valuables here at my house - but don't come back on the 22nd wanting them...teehee ... I'll give them back!
Got up at 4 this a.m. too sick to sleep. Was really my hives that were causing me not to sleep. Itching so bad. Went t the Doctor this a.m. at 7. Bronchitis and sinusitis. Everyone in town is sick, he says. He gave me a magic shot so in 24 hours, I will be just fine. They hurt so bad going in and it is worth the pain. Plus, I got a steriod shot for my hives, and Predisone tofgollow up the shot. The hives will be gone, too.
Now, Friday, I have tons to do. Jim, said he will do the Walmart shopping this aft. He is wonderful, this morning!. So, when Nan arrives it will all be done. Will go to Church on Sunday and again on Christmas Eve. She will got with on C.E. We will go out to supper before Church.
Going to bed, so tired.
Have a quilty day, everyone.
This is amazing Thea. Even through pain and frustration, you manage to make me smile and laugh. I liked your comment about having a can to kick around... An image immediately came to mind...hihihi. It was very funny! So wrap yourself in soft hear, and be good to your body so it doesn't rebel so often.
have a great quilty day. Moff to work I go... Oh those lovely children all hyped up ...gotta love'em!
Sukochi, this is not good! I'm so sorry you are feeling so sick and so much pain. I hope and pray that themeds will make you feel like yourself soon. I'm sending you warm quilty hugs to wrap around you and make you feel better. Sleep well my friend.
