Trudy I am almost at a loss for words. After all the work you did today....the ironing and preparing the gourmet "la Ben Chicken" dinner, you still managed to start the new thread. You are indeed wonderful, and I applaud you.

Trudy you must be resting now 'cause of all the work you have been doing. A woman's work is never done. Slavika, how is your back today? I was going to ask you all something and it is gone. I think I need a post it on the brain. Maria I got to your pictures. You are lucky to have a husband with good taste. I love that rug. I have a place for it. We have taken off wallpaper and been scraping and sanding. I am going to do a glaze treatment - just have to make up my mind what colors. I am also going to try to make some slipcovers for 2 chairs one of these days. I don't have a clue how to do it but I will muddle through it. Glenda did Suzanne Summers talk much about her cancer? It seems I remember that she wasn't doing chemo and was doing some alternative treatment. Just wondering how it was working out. I feel like a new woman. Got my haircut today. My sil says this is a good site.http://www.merchantcentral.com/9-11tribute/ For some reason it won't load on my 'puter. Time to go paint, Peggy

Default I am very sorry......

that this will not be a very cheery post.
Yesterday I had all sorts of problems getting to this message board and lost quite a long 'cheery' post.

Today things are quite different after hearing from home. We were told earlier this week that our sister-in-law (dh's brother's wife) had been diagniosed with inoperable lung cancer. We were sad but we were hoping for the best. Last night we learned that the doctors have given her 8 weeks without chemo and with chemo a little longer. The cancer has spread to her lymph glands all over her body She is 62. DH's brother is 10 years older than dh and whilst we have always gotten on OK, we never saw them a great deal. They chose not to be involved in family gatherings, something that dh and his sister always found hard to understand. However we are naturally very upset with this news and now dh and his sister (I was on the phone to her last night for a long time) are wondering could they have done more to have had a closer relationship. As an 'outsider' I feel it was the way they chose to live their lives and lets now give them as much support as we can.

I also got quite a telling off from my doctor yesterday for not having rested enough. He explained that by doing what I had been doing the bones in my big toes will not fuse and I will have to go through the whole procedure again. He has certainly scared the living daylights out of me and I am keeping any walking to a minimum. In five weeks time I will have an xray to see if the fusion has taken. I really hope I have done no damage.

I wished we could cancel the last 2 weeks and start again.

I will try and be a bit more cheery next time.......

Maria

Default ...stay off those feet...

Maria so sorry you have to go through so much turmoil right now. It is always hard when a family member is terminal. When family members choose not to be social, there is nothing you can do. I am sure you and your DH and Sis tried everything to be close. Now you stay off your feet no more walking. Being alone you really didn't have much of a choice, but now take it easy. Sometimes the Drs. have to scare the living daylights out of us before we listen. I am sure he was just trying to get your attention, and it looks like it worked. Don't worry.
Peggy the site was really a good one.... more chills. I find that eveything I see about the bombing touches me, and I end up tearing. I guess we all do that.
Slavika and Ann ... Thanks for appreciating me
I have DSL and it is supposed to be "faster than a speeding bullet", but it sure is taking long to get to some web pages lately. I have heard that the Internet has an unprecedented amount of traffic lately and a lot of the sites are overloaded. Maybe that is why some of you are having trouble. Everyone wants information.
We are off to have a friendly game of cards tonight. We play Phase 10, and the last time we got together I was the winner! ... they are going to be out to get me tonight.

See y'all tomorrow...

Smile Proud of our President!!

Hi all. Maria: I am so sorry for your difficult news, but I do agree with Trudy. Sometimes people just make their decisions to go it alone, even tho' you try to connect. And as you said, now you can show them lots of support, and I'm sure that will mean a lot.
Now keep off your feet. We are all givng you orders. but isn't that what friends are for, to care about each other. I surely hope that all will be well. And I agree with Trudy here too. Dr.s sometimes just read you the riot act to get your attention and make you behave.

Peggy: That was a good site. I have appreciated seeing the pictures from all around the world. It's a great feeling to know that the world community supports us.

Trudy: I wonder if the Kleenex mfg. are having to produce more tissues to take care of all the tears? Pictures are worth a thousand words aren't they

I was so proud of the President and what he had to say tonight. And I get disturbed at the news media, who immediately afterwards, start asking questions and analyizing. We all heard what he said, and we all know when 'push comes to shove' Americans will get the work done. Look at what happened during WW2. Rationing of all sorts of stuff, everyone working, or fighting whatever it took. Why should the media think we would be any different now? Enough venting. Thanks for listening.

Hi Slavika, Glenda, Karen, Geri, Lily Ann

Default ,,great speech by President Bush


Hi Everybody
I watched President Bush give his speech and he did a fine job. I think he said all that had to be said. He certainly has the support of not only the American people but almost every other country in the world.
Maria sorry to hear that your SIL is so sick. I have a friend whose husband has cancer and she is having a very rough time. Not only has her husband's life changed forever but so has hers. You are right, just support them both as best you can. You also MUST listen to your doctor, and give those feet of yours a chance to heal.
Peggy I made new covers for a rocking chair that my DIL has. I made a "template" or pattern out of a old sheet, sewed that up, making any changes that I needed, before I cut and sewed up the slipcover fabric. I must say it turned out pretty good. My back was bothering me more this evening then it did all day, so I guess I just have to take it easy for a bit.
Hi to you all, and I'll be back tomorrow. Night.

Slavika thanks for the tip to making slipcovers. At the cost of the fabric I have been looking at that is a good idea. They are wing back chairs. We must all like blue. Another thing in common. Welcome back Lily. We missed you. Just sorry that you had to come back early. Men and their clickers. Maria - stay off those feet! We want you dancing at the wedding. I am sorry about your sil. Just give them the support that you can. Ann, don't you just hate it when the news guys rehash what a speech was about? They must think that we are dummies. I get upset lately when the press tells things that I don't think we always need to know like the wearabouts of the President and others. I think that they feed the enemy information. But that is just my opinion. I keep waiting now for the other shoe to fall so to speak. I have a feeling that more is to come here but I hope that I am wrong. When you spoke of rationing it brought back a memory of when I was little. I guess it was supposed to be butter. It was white and had a little yellow thing in it that you had to squeeze till it turned it all yellow. That was my job. Ann we are not allowed to say Kleenex. My friend works at P&G in paper and we have to use Puffs. Trudy I hope you beat them in cards again. I have never heard of that game. See you all later. Time for the morning walk. It is finally light out.

Default ...good to see you Lily...

Ahh, .....now everyone is back where they belong. Glad to hear you had a nice relaxing vacation Lily. We were hoping that you didn't get into any trouble.
Peggy..Oh, they tried to distract me, they put Pringles Pizza Potato Chips beside me, they brought out the Costco mixed nuts...they skipped me constantly ...but I whooped them again I am not a good card player, I never watch to see what people pick up or throw out, in fact I change cards so many times they say "she just picked it up, now she's throwing it out"... for me to win 2 times in a row is an event. hee hee
I remember the margarine with the little packet of powder that had to be mixed in .. only my Dad would eat it, my brother and I had to have butter. I still don't eat margarine.
Ann the way the US is solidly behind the President, you will do alright.

I went to the Opthamologist today, my eyes have been so sore, itching and burning. No infection, but he thinks I have an allergy. He gave me eye drops that seem to be working so far. Now I think I have already whined about how my body is falling apart by inches.... this is a new one on me. How could I suddenly become allergic to fall?

Six of us are off to the Casino tonight, we will play our $20.00 and then at 10:00 go to see "Nearly Neil Diamond".. He sings the songs, has the same hairstyle, wears the same clothes....and if you squint really hard, you might think it is Neil..! See you there Slavika (she is going with her friends and I think they have better seats too).

See you guys tomorrow... have a good evening...

Default Welcome home Lily!

I don't know what happened but I posted on the previous thread so I have cut & pasted what I wrote below. At least I didn't loose my post.
Trudy we would do well playing cards together. I cannot take it all too serious and dh especially, gets a bit annoyed.
I just hate it when I am pondering what card to put down and dh says 'just put down the 9 of hearts' or whatever. Of course I would have no idea what card anyone has unless I accidently peeked and then it still doesn't help me
Your night out to 'almost Neil Diamond' sounds like fun.

G'day all,

It is again a beautiful spring day here in Melbourne and I am feeling a bit brighter about my feet and just have to accept the fact that I have to stay put for another month or so. I could be having to cope with a lot worse things.

I watched the address to congress by your president and I thought the speech was excellent. I was never that impressed with your president but over the past few weeks that view has certainly changed. Unfortunately the bottom line is War and that really scares me but then at the same time these acts of terrorism have to be addressed. I also agree that I am tired of seeing so many 'experts' analyzing what the president said and I have also started not to watch too many of these current affairs type programs. The one thing that did send shivers up my spine as I watched the address was that there were so many leaders in the one location

The websites that some of you have posted were very heart warming.

I have just received an email that Trudy is posting at the same time as me Hi Trudy!

As Lily wrote to everyone it made me realise what a talented bunch we are

Do any of you have a digital camera? It would be great to see your photo's and to be able to put a face to everyone's name.
Whenever I now see someone with a dripping ice-cream I think of Trudy

I love my digital camera and I am forever taking photo's. The initial outlay might be a little pricy but to be able to take so many photos and just 'delete' what you don't like is fantastic.

Have a great weekend all
Cheers
Maria

Default Oh My goodness!

I didnt realize I posted on the old thread. I must be getting old!

Slavika: Good Idea for the slip covers! Will have to give that a try as I do need to get some done.
Sorry to hear you are still having problems with your back.

Peggy: you are not alone in your thinking. I feel the same way that there is more to come also.

Trudy: Sounds like you have a fun night planned. I love Neil Diamond. Hope this guy is just as good!
Your poor eyes. Allergies are not fun.

Maria: It was a good speech the President gave. I was impressed myself. The War scares me to. But they do have to be stopped. I just hope it helps. To many lives have been lost and it really does need to be stopped all over the world.

Have a great night all!

It's been one heck of a day for me. We got word that my Aunt has passed away. The one with CJD. Even though I knew it was coming it is still hard. I'm thinking because of the recent events in our country is why I'm so weepy. I find my self crying at the drop of a hat today. I've spent a good share of the day cleaning my "office" / computer room. I've had to get my stuff in order so I can have my receptionist drag all the products and supply's to the meeting location for Wednesday's meeting. I've got some one to do the morning meeting but I will be able to do the evening one after the funeral.

I agree with all of you about President Bush. His speech to the nation was great. I'm very impressed with the way this is all being handled.

Lily what was it that your father did?? Did I miss something?

Maria hope your feeling better after your tongue lashing from your doctor. It must have been hard to set through. I would have started to cry. Did You? I did take a look at your pictures. Your poor feet look very sore. But your DH's gifts are wonderful. i'm glad he made it home safe. Also so sorry about your SIL cancer is an awful thing.

I did check out all the web sites that you all have posted.

Slavika You are so talented I envy you. I used to sew about 30 years ago . And do cross stitch. But no time now. Maybe be I really retire.

My meetings last week were busy. I've asked to split one of them on Wednesdays Have 1 in the morning and one during the noon hour. That would make 3 meetings( along with the late afternoon one) in that town. Last week there was standing room only and some left early because who wants to stand up all the time. My receptionist was soooooo busy when I was done with the meeting she was at her wits end. She had a pile of checks and a pile of money and wasn't sure where to start. So we both dug in and the books balanced
We are very very good. I always say we work so well and for so long together we know what each other is thinking.

My Moms birthday is tomorrow I bought her a pair of earings. She is hard to buy for any more because she is like me if she wants something she just buys it. My kids say I'm hard to buy for too

Well I do feel better know that I've talked with you all. I'll check in tomorrow and see whats going on.

To log in I had to remember my password - thank goodness it is food related so I didn't have to try too hard. I think we could play cards together. I sub in a canasta group and always make dumb plays because I don't pay attention to what is thrown. I always hope that I get another dumb player for the last hands. When I do win I am amazed. Karen my sympathies for your aunt. This has been a hard week for you all around. Trudy and Slavika have fun tonight. We saw Neil Diamond years ago. Right down in front of the speakers. My exciting dh fell asleep. Every time we clapped he thought it was over and jumped up out of his seat. The news today said that they picked up 25 people across the river in Kentucky for questioning. They lived in various apartment complexes. They are all about 10 min from Greater Cincinnati airport which is in Kentucky. They aren't saying much. I have a friend that lives down the street and she said it is scary. We are going to a little craft town in Indiana tomorrow and we will be back Monday. So I wil see you all then, Peggy

Karen: So sorry to hear about your Aunt. My Thoughts are with you.
My Dad was a Newcaster on TV. He did that for years and then switched to being a teacher of Broadcasting. He got fed up with the way they wanted to handle the news.

Peggy: That is scary about the arrests so close. I think these people are every where unfortuantly. Have fun on your trip! Sounds like it will be alot of fun!

Well Im off to play in the yard today. Trying to trim things up before the winter hits. Its beautiful out there, so I might as well enjoy it while it lasts!
