  • (((Sue))) Betsy in NW WA
  • Got back to NW Washington from my summer in Alaska. I'll be catching up for awhile as I read posts. Carol,I laughed when I read about your husband wanting a food saver etc. Not really funny but I came home and found out my DH had bought 25lbs of pinto beans, 2 ten pound bags of rice, 25lb bags of sugar, flour and oatmeal.…

  • Katla... so nice to have visits with family. and friends...electronically or in person. Like you, I am so glad I am fully vaccinated. Today I went to meet with two women I haven't seen since the lockdown. We met outside in a park with our own camping chairs and brought our own cups of coffee. the three of us talked non…
  • Heather... Love your wood floors... I love wood and would like to remove our carpets and have wood flooring put in. We have 25 year old wood flooring in the kitchen and dining room and it is still really lovely. Someday I might figure out what it would cost to put wood flooring in the rest of the house.... or maybe leave…

  • Just hanging out and spending most of the time on my left side. Have had two followup appointments since my surgery for detached retina. Next followup appointment is on Tuesday. The past three days I can take short breaks sitting up and walking slowly and stretching. Pain lasted only for the first three days and drainage…
  • Last Tuesday evening I kept thinking my glasses were smudged. But washing the glasses didn't help. The next morning I had my routine 6 month eye checkup and the doctor right away told me I had a detached retina and several tears. He said it was too technical an operation for him to do but he got me into an eye surgeon who…

  • :# Up since 3AM, just can't turn off my brain today. It is better to get up and move around than stay in bed trying to sleep. Think this will be a low key day for me. Friday already and looking toward a wet weekend if the weather forecast is correct. Betsy in NW WA
  • Barbara... Happy Birthday and sounds like it was a nice day. Thanks for the thoughts on ways my DH could warm up. We tried several things but the chills seem more internal than not.

Dog walking with neighbor 5. Ebike…
  • Thanks Barbie for the new month. Machka, I like your February challenge. I will give it a try and I'll have to be creative because we live in the country and not near businesses and roads. It will be fun. Happy February everyone.... Betsy in NW WA
  • Lisa ... and Heather... Just some thoughts on communication and how people get their needs met. I was born and raised in a small village in Alaska. Everyone from our area talks and responds slowly. Growing up it was a sign of respect to listen and and reflect and then respond. Now that I live in the outside world, I notice…
  • Kelly.... Hugs and Prayers. Wow on the response from Lauren's employer! Lisa.... A year and a half is way too long to not have answers and to have the issues.
