  • Congrats, Michele, I agree, go spend Thanksgiving with Denise and Pete and then making monthly or every other monthly trips to go visit with them and stay in a motel if you have to; but, keep up with her during her pregnancy and after the baby is born. Staying in a motel won't put pressure on Denise - then you could come…
  • Barbie - When I went out to Oklahoma to visit a friend I had not seen since we first met (in elementary school), they'd say, "Say something, we love your drawl!" One thing I have found is that we are all learning different ways to live life.
  • Surgeon wants me to be tested for Vitamin D and B12. Told him I had been a little constipated; and that the Miralax wasn't working so great; told me that my taking the Magnesium Citrate helped somewhat (a couple of gulps of it). He said that I was probably magnesium deficient. I really do NOT want to take more pills of any…
  • Allie – How long have you had GERD? What kind of medication do you take? I ask this because I had been on Nexium for over for 12 years. I went to a Surgeon because going to a If you want to get back into reading the Bible (Basic Instructions Before Leave Earth); easiest way to get through it is to get a ‘daily’ Bible – so…
  • HAHAHAHA! Allie - I have heard something similar; our maid told me (when the kids were young) to get tincture of turpentine (from the drugstore) and put it in a saucer under their bed and they/we would not be ''stuffed up". I don't think I ever did it … but; I remembered after that, that a 'lot of the "Old Wives Tales" ……
  • Lanette - I burst into tears with "sleep apnea" told me NOT to drive until I go to Neurologist who will decide if they need to do a 'different sleep apnea' test - which would show if I have Narcolepsy or if what is going on is still 'seizure' related. They took me off the Dilantin, which I was happy about; did not change…
  • Waiting around waiting for place that can do an MRI on me with a newer procedure so that my LINX contraption doesn't make it films 'flash' when they take it. I'm so tired of being the 'go-between' making sure that the 'order' has been sent to allow me to get the procedure done. Diagnostics Center say they don't have an…
  • Michelle - Yeah, I've gotten used to 'not driving' - although living 30 miles from where we used to live and where my friends are - I find it pretty 'confining'. Getting rather 'bored'. There seems to be just so much time you can spend, cleaning house, reading, watching TV, and playing games on computer; or just catching…
  • I took an extra Clonazepam and feel a lot better; tears from yesterday are gone. Dr. Bear mits says he will contact Neurologist; and maybe order the 'sleep study' (probably done at the building his office is in). Since I don't think I have had any seizures - because the only time I've been told I have had seizures; I don't…
  • Tracey - they can x-ray your toe and determine it is broken; but all the will tell you is to tape it to the big toe for a period of time. Tylenol or Ibuprofen will do for pain. I have broke 'big' toes on both feet. I know I have broken a couple of the others because I seem to be pretty klutzy at times. Lenora
  • Barbara - I think the last 10lbs must be the hardest to lose. I weighed myself at GNC and that showed I weighed 153; then I got weighed at my Orthopedist's office at 151. I don't feel like I have lost 10lbs since I was going to my MD's office to weigh (but have another appointment with her in early November. Last evening…
  • Trying to lose that final 10lbs. Okie - Happy Belated Birthday Heather - Happy Early Birthday (I hope I got the right person); did not set up my side-by-side Word; so my short-term memory is being tested! LOL! Going to 'sleep apnea' MD tomorrow evening and guess we will discuss if my husband's and son's desires for me to…
  • Only 2 more days of keeping up with 'sleep patterns' before seeing my 'sleep apnea' MD about sleepiness during the day. Twenty pages of it, too (color coded) - he is going to 'know' that I am extremely O.C.D.; but figured it will let him 'easily see when I have been sleepy during the day - which has been 'most days'.
  • Snowflake – Love your new bathroom. That is about the same color my BF has used in all of her condo. Very restful. Michelle – Sometimes it really is better to ‘let go and leave it’. Do what is best for your well-being; not because you have some sense of ‘having to sit back and watch it go to Hell and back because you think…
  • Katla - I'm having to be pretty 'patient'. In fact, I was 'floored' when Louis started talking about these projects to tell you the truth. He and DOS picked out the land we now own; and, Louis drew up a rough draft of sorts of what we wanted and DDnL#1's BnL and a couple of helpers built it. Of course, after they framed it…
  • Carol - That's what has happened to our Formica counter tops and the color is very dated. I think Louis said that we will have to find something less expensive than granite. I just put the word out to mean that I want a stone counter. My oldest sister has Corian tops and her sink is built into it. It is thin (about a 1/2…
  • Kim - My Mother, a devout Christian, could 'rip' someone a 'new @$$-O' with a smile on her face - dice, sliced, and chop - and they would not 'know' that they had just been 'told in such a nice way that they were being jerks' until she smiled and turned around and walked away from them and they started sliding apart. It…
  • Michelle - I agree with Okie - step away from it. Let them do it 'their way' for a while. Take up something that is 'outside of your box or comfort zone'. Sometimes it takes 'new blood' to move forward. Don't look at it in a 'negative way' … move on and up - UP is where POSITIVE is! There are so many things you could be…
  • The correct spelling of the medication is SEROQUEL. I take two 400mg tablets at night - because it makes me 'sleepy if I take them every 12 hours'; my MD agreed that I could take it that way. It's cheaper, too! I get the generic brand (double up) because the 800mg only comes in 'brand name'; and it would about $95+ through…
  • Michelle - No, you did not muddy yourself at all. Lenora
  • Katla – This woman could possibly win; because there is a ‘mind-set’ that something “free” is good. It isn’t; someone will be picking up the tab for that. She’s a ‘socialist’ running on a Democratic ticket. Some people will vote for her simply because of race or gender. Not listening to anything that she ‘can do’ (if…
  • Regarding property taxes ... I wish that 'if' you no longer had children in the public school district (for any school; public or private) that when the homeowners reached a certain age and there are only 1 or 2 living should have that portion of the taxes (school) removed from their bills. Both sons are 40+ and we have…
  • Rebecca - My little office area looks like your middle son's room. Lenora
  • Katla and Heather - I must have passed over you stories about whatever - dealing with a sale of some property? Whatever you do, I hope it goes well with you. Why would you have a CO attorney if the property is in another place? I'd think that you would have to 'charge' that person - maybe in Federal Court - since it isn't…
  • Rebecca - If Charlotte shows up here and grows any more than she has at your house; I'm afraid I would be asking PIP to bring her 'big boot' to squish her. I have a 'terminal case of arachnophobia'. Lenora
  • Kaen in Virginia – Was that death in Chesterfield, VA? I have an email friend up there. We met on an ‘art class’ program. Barbara in Southern Oregon Coastie AHMOD – Yes, I feel so much better than I did the end of November and into early January. I’ve been ‘restricted from driving’; but, that is OK; just a little sad that…
  • MD 'sleep apnea's' office called again today; hospital has changed his schedule around and he will be working the rest of the month in the NICU - he is such a 'big' man it is difficult to picture him picking up a preemie with his 'bear-sized' paws/hands. So the list continues of 'sleep patterns'. I've got a 17-page list…
  • <3 Allie - I thought you got another dog; why doesn't Tom take his dogs to FL with him. You're just playing into his plan (again). I know you think those dogs living with Tom are your dogs, too. It's hard to give up a fur baby - but; when Elena moves in (and believe me, she will if Tom feels anything for her) - … well ……
