Sorry, I have been missing, but things go on while I am planning to do other things. Yesterday I went down to get a new pair of glasses and picked up a cot mattress and some cot sheets and a quilt. The bits of the cot are all over my bedroom floor and I need to get on to that today.
I go to NZ in 19 days so I am trying to get sorted for that, and yesterday my DB2 arrived around with his tree lopper thingy and help to prune the Poinciana tree in the front yard. First time he has volunteered to do anything and actually turn up in years. As well as that the green waste bag man arrived to take away my hedge and tree prunings and tells me that he has sold his business, is retiring and next month will be his last pick up. His co-worker is taking over so hopefully he will be just as good. Then the neighbour appeared on the scene while I was trying to fill up my new bags and said that Joe has collapsed on the floor. She has called the ambulance, can I come take a look? What am I expected to do? Dunno but I went anyway. Poor guy has a bad set of kidneys and was carted off to hospital for another couple of days. Hope he has good health insurance. He has sure used it over the past couple of years.
Anyway - enough about me.

Annie - You can't help your emotions at a time like this. Cry as much as necessary. The grief syndrome will play out as it did for your mum. Grief, anger, acceptance and memories. I'm glad you have the family and Curtis there to help you along. I'm afraid I can't say much that will help and wish I could teletransport myself over there to give you a big hug.

Happy - I saw the story of E and the bear on facebook late last night. Good luck with that. Your garden is sounding good. We have had some very cool (for us) temps this year and my veges are basically standing still. I'm glad you are enjoying (sort of) the shop. It gets you out of the house and beats cabin fever.

Michelle - sounds like you and Santa are settling in well. It always helps when the weather co-operates.

Ceejay - sounds like some maintenance is well overdue for some of your machinery. Won't help if the city runs out of water.

Laura - Hope you beat the doughnut craving and settled for the wheat or oats. I'm having instant oats again. I understand the leaving of 5 sports on the punchcard. Some times it just happens. I think I have a card in my wallet from the gym at Banana Alley in Melbourne when I was working down there last. There is no date on it but I suspect that the gym is either not there anymore or has changed hands and so can't be honoured anymore.

Mel - poor Jen. You have to go through these stages to come to a peaceful acceptance. Doesn't make it any easier. Life is just about as complicated over there as I have over there without the addition of disability.

So the cat is going berserk for some reason. The sun is shining. I have done my run for the day. Getting better and going further everyday. Not losing much weight for all the effort tho.
I've finished the big T's doco and starting on a course outline for Micks training stuff.
With a little bit of luck, the back yard will be cleared and neat and tidy by this afternoon, the front yard should be clear of all the hedge debris and maybe I will have the cot done.
I also need to take the cat to the vet. I think she is having problems with her teeth.
So I guess I need to get on with it. But..... lets see if I can find some nature to inspire all of us to get out there and just do it.
Here it is. A beautiful 150 year old peaceful church not far from Christchurch, which for some reason was mostly spared the earthquake. It's for Annie

Mel - typing away over my head.

I will check out the diary for Friday your time and see what we can organise. The dvd arrived quicker than I anticipated. I meant to tell you to watch out for it. Glad it arrived okay - they probably checked it out to see if it was pornographic.

Gotta go. Shower, breakfast, coffee and then work .

How can a heart hurt even more...I mean really...just when you think hurt cannot get any worse...it rises to an even extreme event. Not only do I miss daddy but it opens the wound for momma. Why does GOD put us through this???? Especially for emotional people like me? I know not to question the word of GOD, however I do. Messed up and a wreck.

Annie - I know your pain. It is heartbreaking and gut wrenching. It does get a little easier over time, but the only way past it is through it, I'm so sorry to say. Before I lost both my parents, my cousin lost both of hers a few years apart. She said it's quite common to feel alone and lost and like an orphan. Know that you have a wonderful husband, loving children and siblings, not to mention many other family and friends, to help you get through this. We are here for you. I'm just a phone call away, my friend. Anytime, day or night.

Wow what good advice! I have often felt like an orphan after both my parents passed. But my uncles took me under their wing. It will be the same way with them passing I'm sure.

Annie
Hugs. You will get through this with support from others. God only puts as much on us as we can bare. It will make you stronger as time goes by.

The ground storage tank is still draining but almost finished. The guys are guarding the hole where the inspector will be climbing inside. They are to keep out all small animals.

What a day yesterday!. My back and foot were very painful last night when I got home so I took a Mobic and brought one with me today. I went to bed with a headache and woke up one also. Got tickled ant my co-worker. She's not experienced this before and she had all sorts of new things happen to her that threw her off guard.
Need to call and make an appointment for Friday if possible for lab work and refills. I'm going back to Paragould Thursday to visit with my cousin from Midland Texas. These three cousins are like sisters and we grew up across the street from each other.
The inspectors are here.

Hi girls,

Today will be a full day for me - going to work at the thrift shop - this time in the back of the house cleaning and sorting donations. So I don't have time for a long post today.

Annie - my heart and hands go out to you. I know you are feeling very sad, time will make it a bit easier though you will always feel the loss. Be comforted in the fact that you were very good to him, always looking out for him and taking good care of him. We like to believe he is in a happy place now too. Be good to yourself and let those around you comfort you That was a really nice picture you posted of both of you.

Ceejay - with all the walking and stairs you do at the plant, a busy day indeed counts for some exercise!

Shad - lovely picture of the church you posted. I really like how they framed it in between the rocks.

Mel - good luck with the election work today. Don't wear yourself out.

Michelle - hope the great nephew decided to greet the world yesterday.

Hi Laura

Off I go into the wild blue yonder... have a good one ladies!

Good morning my dear friends,

It is with EXTREME excitement, pride and joy that I announce my grand-nephew (or is it great-nephew?) Ryan James was born this morning at 2:01 am, all 8lbs 9oz of him! He has a wonderful, loving mommy and daddy, and he's already got a big family and so many friends who love him also! Happy Birthday, Ryan! Here are the stats and a quote from the baby's daddy, "32 hour labor, 8lbs 9oz, 22inches long, APGAR score 9.9. He is a beautiful baby boy."

=======================

Ceejay - Like you, I was fortunate to have a wonderful aunt and uncle (my last remaining aunt and uncle - my dad's brother and his wife) to take me under their wing. They did the same for my other cousin who lost both of her parents. I know it will hit me hard when they pass, and also when my step-mom passes. :-(

Happy - I really hope there's not too much dust or anything to upset your allergies/sinus health where you're cleaning.

Okay...gotta get to work. I'll be able to concentrate better now that Ryan finally made his appearance!

Much love and many, many hugs to everyone,

Annie - I totally agree with what Happy said. Please be comforted by the fact that you were so good to him, as you were for your momma as well. You loved them, cared for them, and made them feel so very special. Sending you much love and many hugs today and everyday.

Morning all.

Annie - Such a difficult time for you and your family. You've had such a wonderful long time with both of your parents, your pain and grief bear that out. Hang in there girl, I know today will be especially rough. You're fortunate to have your kids and C by your side during this. Know we're here for you!! Love that photo of you and your dad!

Happy - Your bear visit had to be scary as heck! I'm like Mel - citygal all the way. Best to not keep anything food-like outside, especially the garbage cans! Too funny about the volunteer's husband. Not sure why he's there at all...Hope today's sorting goes well.

Ceejay - Sounds like yesterday was a huge challenge at work - I hope today isn't as eventful. Hope the pain med does the job on the aches. How nice you'll see your cousins on Thursday!

Michelle - Congrats on the long-awaited great & grand-nephew!! Are they in your immediate area, or down in the SD area??

Mel - How did the election go yesterday?? Sorry the falafel didn't agree with you, hope you're feeling better today. I love 'em, but don't eat them very often - I try to stay away from too much deep-fried food. Sorry to hear about your friend's tumor/cyst - I hope her upcoming surgery is successful. Good to hear that Jen is in a better mindset at the moment.

Shad - You sound busy as usual. How's the neighbor w/ the kidney probs?
===

Had a pleasant day yesterday - the sun finally came out and it warmed up a bit too. I lazed for a good chunk of the morning and then got out and did a bit of shopping, including two string bean plants (Blue Lake) to replace the one the rabbit ate. (BTW, that one is trying to come back - apparently the rabbit left an unfurled leaf behind.)

In the afternoon I finally planted my 4 windowbox planters. Haven't done any digging in the ground - it's way too wet. I do have a few more pots to plant, might do that in the next day or two. I was thinking to just dump the wet soil (there's already some plants in the pots that I'd overwintered) and plant with the new bag of potting soil I bought. But it's so much more dense than the last bag. Doesn't help that it got wet sitting outside at the garden center....

I had a passing thought of going to a Jazzercise class last night, but the day got away from me and my only exercise was a dog walk w/ doggy and bf.

I will be going to Jazzercise now for my exercise, and haven't bought a punchcard for the recplex's fitness classes, not even for just 1 class per week. I might just have a go at doing 3 J. classes a week. I used to do that - they're Monday and Thursday nights and Saturday mornings. I'll have to shoot an e-mail to my instructor and see what equipment, if any, to bring. For a while way back when, we used to bring the big exercise balls, and dumbbells (and mats, of course). This instructor has her classes in 4 different locations and so she can't supply equipment like the franchises that have a single permanent location.

Not feeling up to a WW meeting or W-I today, so I'm going to skip this week entirely, first class I've missed. I haven't heard anything about a new session starting even though we're within 2 or 3 weeks of finishing this one. I do plan to continue.

Okay, enough rambling for me. Back to slogging through all this !@#$% e-mail.

Laura - My niece, her husband and their son live in Southern CA, about 25 miles (or a 1 hour drive) east of LA, in the San Bernardino area. They are about 1.5-2 hours northeast of San Diego. They are planning on coming up north in August, so I'll get to see them at that time. Or I might try and schedule a weekend visit in the next couple months. Glad you had a nice day off. I need to find some exercise classes to do, and I'm thinking about joining WW, but I'm having trouble finding out how much it is per week (even on their website).

UPDATE: I just found the WW pricing page. It wasn't working last night when I tried to access it.

No tears today, a couple of times almost lost it. DD and babe came over and visited for a couple of hours. The babe is my therapy. Cleaning the house and now cooking for brother and SIL...DD and baby Jacob coming over also. Dinner at 6 pm. Keep it together girl...Tomorrow will be the toughest, laying him to rest next to momma. I know, be strong.

Annie - You are strong, but you are also in pain. Don't shut down. Don't fight the tears. Allow yourself to feel what you feel. Crying is not a bad thing given what you're going through.
