I'm unofficially happy for Janice too!

Dee, I hope your Mom & Dez are doing OK. Continued prayers!

Cheryl, are you feeling better? Is Jake noticing anything different about you yet? How is Stewart? I keep forgetting to ask how things have been since his last hospital stay.

This is short & sweet, just like me! Chat later, gator!

We know you're sweet just didn't know you were short!
Busy today painting my bathroom and staying out of the fridge. I asked my family not to buy me a birthday cake over the weekend because I would have eaten the whole thing. I do LOVE cake!

I'm just a tad over 5'2" but I like to write 5'3" on my license, etc. Just a shorty with a 6' hubby. :-) I could wipe out the cake too if I had a chance. I'm not as crazy over the frosting as what I use to be, just a tiny bit is enough for me. I have a BIL that will eat it by the spoonfuls. No word on the job yet? Guess they are wanting you to suffer! Have fun painting today!

Good morning ladies,
Nope, no word on the job. My boss is on vacation this week so probably won't hear anything until she gets back. I'm on vacation too, hope its a pool day.
Have a good one all,
J

I posted earlier, but it was a whiney, gripy post so I didn't even hit reply.

I'm glad to hear things are going well for both of y'all. I hope you have a good pool day, too, Janice. I could use one (or ten) myself.

Gayle, how are things going at work? You haven't said lately and I wonder...

Cheryl, Lord knows I gripe enough here! Feel free to post and vent! Sometimes it's easier here or also a good spot when you have vented enough at home! Job is still the same. I'm working on statements today at home. The Director is a jerk and will never change. Thank goodness I basically only have to deal with him when I pay rent. I dreaded this past rent payment, I just knew he was going to bring up some new ideas of his. Apparently he was too busy putting out other fires then to be concerned with me and my little ol' shop. I'm just hanging out... taking up space... working and drawing a paycheck... I feel like if God wants a change for me then he will bring it. I'm getting good at just floating by... :-) So bad I want to voice my concerns to corporate, only problem is, it is corporate and they are after the almighty dollar instead of the concerns and best interest of the resident.

Gayle - I think most homes are like that. The oldies are just the way they make big bucks and they don't give a rats a** about them. It is sad.
Just hang in there - what is meant to be will be.
Cheryl - just know we are always here for you, vent when you need to, we love you and you can let it go here.
I finally got the word yesterday, Woo Hoo I officially got the job.
Have a wonderful day girls,
J

Congratulations Janice. When do you start your new job?

Cheryl don't worry about venting and complaining that is what we are here for.

Gayle how is the geo caching going this summer? We haven't been doing any. I prefer to do it in the city as compared to to digging through a bunch of scrub and bush.

Shelley just cause your back is feeling a bit better don't push it too much.

We were out T@bin this last week. Dez came with us too. The weather wasn't hot, the nights were cool and we got some rain but we still had a great time.
I called mom when we got home yesterday. She said that the cancer clinic called to tell her she has bone cancer on her back. Now we need to wait to see what and if the specialist will do anything about it. I walked around here crying most of the day. Larry was out with clients and most of my friends are at the lake.
Larry's friend from work (that we test drove his smart car) was saying good bye as he was leaving on his holidays, he turned to go out the door grab the handle and went down. He hit his head on the filing cabinet hard. He sat back up and said a few sentences that didn't make sense and then fell over and started to have a seizure. He started to vomit and his breathing was very labored. It took the amulance 20 minutes to arrive and he was getting worse. They brought him to one hospital and then transfered him to a bigger hospital. I am waiting for Larry to call me and tell me how he is doing. He is in his early 40's slim and fit. Larry and the whole office was really shock up. this guy was the past owners son. He has worked with Larry for at least 15 years. Probably longer.

I need your prayers and hugs.

I just found out that Steward has a brain anerism. They didn't expect him to make it through the night but he did. They are operating on him now. They said that it is very serious and that he probably won't make it. If he does he is expected to be quite impaired. Please pray for him.

How sad Dee! Prayers sent... I knew two people who passed this week from the exact same cause. One was a fellow classmate. Please give Larry a hug and have Larry give you one in return regarding your mothers health. Life can be super stressful at times. Guess it makes us appreciate the calm times more.

Thanks Gayle. I am sorry to hear of your class mate passing. Another young one too.
I find calmness and peace when I camp. That is why I am never home much lately. I can meditate, pray and cry and no one sees me.

Steward is still alive but is unstable and in critical condition. I am still praying for a full recovery.
We went to see mom and dad last night. Dad looked pretty sad and holding back the tears. He tries so hard not to show any emotion. Mom looked ok but she isn't eatting or drinking very much. She is very tired and weak though.

Hi guys
I just want to give an update on Stu, we went to see him last night and he responded when I talked to him about my smart car. He tried to smile (he is on a ventilater) and he squeezed my hand. I asked him if he was in pain and if he was to squeeze my hand and he did. Good thing is his brain is functioning. He is has a long road ahead of him and we know that things can change for the worse but he is alive and is cohearent some of the time. Please keep praying for him and his wife. She isn't doing very well. She also ended up in emerg with everything that is happenning.

I won't be checking in for awhile but I will be thinking of you.
