    Flea - sorry for the cack-handed help! I know you, and should have known you had investigated all the information available.


    Later y'all,
    Love, Lisa

    Oh, no. Not at all, Lisa. I appreciated the information. I wish I had more information or experience. So far, the state is not being very forthright with information (they are not responding to me), but I think they must talk to my husband -- he is the heir. Sometimes I don't think they realize that even though they do this every day, we have never done it before, so we have a lot of anxiety about the process. The letter just very onimously says that the lien must be satisfied "in a timely manner." :anguished: Or else . . . what?

    Not much to contribute today. Meeting went well. Made it back to office and dealt with a few issues. Finished off with gym. Very pleased to have noticeable improvement in strength of left leg. Balance and stability show noticeable improvement.

    Start off my Saturday with blood work and an echocardiogram (have one every year to check on aortic aneurism). It hasn't shown any change in years. Then I'll hit grocery. Want to get in a long walk outside tomorrow since it is supposed to be sunny and warmer. Hopefully will get an hour in. Then work on the basement clean out. Seeing if handyman from church can come by Monday to measure for doors I want replaced (getting white doors to replace the 1956 pine that have really served their duty!).

    Take care all,

    Went to the pot luck. Interestingly, not a lot of the things were store bought. You can usually tell. Homemade soup, the spanakopita was bought, even a lot of the desserts were homemade. I probably went over on the calories, I felt I had to be nice and try a lot of things. Unfortunately, this also included some of the desserts. But I think on the whole I’ve been pretty good down here so it’ll all even out. I do have most of my food ready to go and logged for tomorrow. Only dinner, which I know will be something pretty light.

    After the pot luck they asked me to play canasta. I did. But you know what? I’m getting a bit tired of cards all the time. I’d like to do something in addition to the cards. Maybe I’ll ask someone to play rummikub or Mexican train

    JR - I hope your friend comes here. She’ll enjoy herself. Fantastic that she’s serving.

    There isn’t a lot of the shrimp orzo salad left. I’m thinking that I’ll buy a small dish and take it to my cousins when we see her later next week. Or maybe I’ll give it to my one neighbor here. I think that’s a better idea. As it is now, I’m taking chocolate chip cookies and a grapefruit pie to her. But I’ll need to buy a small dish, maybe at the thrift store or else at the dollar store. Glad I took the spoon down that I did, they must have taken it. But that’s OK, it was just something that I got at the Salvation Army, so what did I lose? 50 cents?

    Rebecca – you couldn’t have given a better V Day gift

    My broken foot is keeping me awake at night. It's the foot that broke at the same time that I broke both ankles while sight seeing at Mesa Verde National Park. It's been seen by 3 orthopedic specialists and a podiatrist. All say it's the kind of fracture that can't be pinned back together surgically, and my best bet is to give the natural tissue time to grow and bridge the bone fragments and tendons together. Because it's not painful during the day, I tend to forget and engage in wrong activities or wear softer soled shoes, which just aggravate the situation. Grrrrr.

    Has the podiatrist suggested a type of shoe to wear?

    I have to wear very stiff-soled shoes with toes that come up in front a little bit for my situation and it sounds like stiff-soles shoes might be the way to go for you, but of course, you'd want to check.

    Because it would be a pain to go out and buy all new shoes, I opted to get carbon fibre insoles. They don't bend! I've got both orthotics and the carbon fibre insoles in my most commonly used pair of shoes and my plan is to use those shoes until they're "done" and then move on to another pair ... rather than buying more shoes. But the combination of the orthotics and carbon fibre insoles means that the shoes are very stiff and my feet do like that better.

    Michele: “Went and played canasta. Tomorrow is the pot luck. Someone at canasta was talking about how they got a cake at the local grocery store which she thinks looked good. I just hope everything isn’t from a store." Food from the store might very well be safer than some people’s homemade food. :flowerforyou:

    Yes!! When we have morning teas, I tend to go for the store-bought food more than the homemade food. Unless I know who made it.

    And I usually bring store-bought food in case people are like me and feel uncomfortable with homemade.

    My doctor advised me to drink a glass of red wine nightly. It is NOT sitting well with me and I’m going to stop. I end up with acid reflux and late-night bathroom visits. :grumble:

    You'd probably be better off eating a handful of grapes instead.

    Sounds like it would be a good idea to talk to a lawyer.

    My husband is doing some harvesting ... he brought in a decent-sized cucumber and some lovely lettuces so I had a cheese and cucumber and lettuce sandwich for "breakfast". And I'm thinking of having another one! :)

    The cucumber is really sweet ... not bitter. Sometimes they can be quite bitter but this one is nice enough I don't have to use salt.

    Luci in WNC: I hope you make your 50th. :star:

    Barbie: I love Bad, Bad Leroy Brown! I wish I could have seen your group dancing to it. :bigsmile:

    Sue in WA: Congrats on your new water heater!!! :flowerforyou:

    Machka: I’m working on meeting my doctor’s instructions. I dribbled a bit of red wine into a big glass of sparkling water. So far, my tummy is okay with it. Grapes are a good idea. :star:


    Our 50th wedding anniversary is coming up in March, but we’re going to save the celebration until summer when our kids can come. We want to visit the place we got married with them and our grandchildren. It is a state park on a cliffside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. In due time, hopefully a long time from now, we hope to have our ashes scattered from there. Our kids have been there with us when they were still in school. They will have to be the ones to scatter our ashes, so they need to see the place again. The day we were married was magical. It was sunny with a very gentle breeze. We could see whales migrating north for the summer. :heart: There are lots of good memories— Among many other good things, my cat attended the wedding on a leash. :bigsmile:

    Expecting Storm Dennis today and tomorrow. :s Edie is coming over for a 1 to 1 tomorrow, so they might get a bit wet running from the car! :p I'm very sorry for the communities up North who are expecting flooding for the second time in a week. Our neighbour's fence is leaning, so it might go over this time.

    Marianne - I can't imagine doing that amount of child care, especially as it doesn't seem to be giving you joy. I adore my grandchildren, but only in small doses. I don't even do much of it as my DH is fantastic at keeping them happy. If it causes you difficulties I would have a quiet word with the parents about their behaviour and maybe a family get together where you can all work out rules together round a table. They can take part in the discussion, make suggestions, and you can draw up a Bill Of Rights between you. Pin it on the wall. Penalties apply if they don't keep their side of the bargain. And rewards if they do.
    Of course, you can always decide to resign from your position. Are they paying you a good salary? Child care like that is fiendishly expensive! >:)
    Seriously though, I hope you can work something out with your son. <3 I'm a very selfish person and I'm good at saying NO. I realise that family circumstances can make things difficult. But your happiness is important too. Good luck! <3

    My cleaner has hurt her back falling on someone's stairs. :| Oh well. I will do a quick surface clean of the public areas, otherwise it will be a month to next weekend. Luckily this is a clean house with not much dust etc. We are tidy and always do the kitchen anyway.

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx
