Hairball *giggle* I feel bad saying it, but I don't miss our cat that found a new home recently.
Water problems here...some bladder thing went out, water spraying everywhere. Life. Lemons. Lemonade.

Jello, dont 'cha wish you could change the stress/food dial setting? Ya know, like LOSE your appetite under stress?! Below a certain level of stress...I eat...above a certain level...can't eat. If I could just dial it down a little. Life is so stressful...I'd never eat. rattle, rattle, babble...

Carol, thinking of you.

Tiger - wha? Your bladder went out and you're spraying water everywhere?

100% agreed on the food/stress threshold. I think you've got a right idea about turning the threshold down by magic, turning the stress up is not an answer.

Rainy day... hard time wanting to work, here.

Tig: Get to the doctor quick!

Cafe: Yuck, I don't think Butterscotch has ever had a hairball and I hope he never gets one. I have enough problem with the dog puking because the idiot will put anything into his mouth and chew it up.

Quilter: Hope you have battened down. I saw a pic of Va Beaches boardwalk so I know you have to be getting pounded with rain and wind by now as that was at about 5AM.

Carol Ann: Still praying for you. Bob is right there with you in your heart and you can carry him around always.

DD wants me to go on the Zone diet with her but I don't know. I hate to get out of my comfort area of knowing what I am getting into, but I know I am definitely over carbing as I am bouncing back and forth with 2-5 lbs and not losing consistently even though I am losing inches so I am thinking about it.

Well, gotta run and put dinner for Jack in the oven. I had breakfast and lunch out so I don't think I am going to have much dinner.

Pouring, teeming rain here. Place is practically empty with folks going to pick up their kids from closing schools. Wind has trees all but bent over horizontally. I'm very nervous about getting home tonight.

And yes, handling that stress did involve chocolate. Can't help it.

To make up for it, I'm going to get home, change my clothes and hop (or step gently) onto my treadmill. This I vow.

Sorry to ramble and run but have a few things to finish and then I'm outta here. Boss is busy with the frenchmen anyway....

Hi Everybody:

Thanks for all the wonderful and kind posts. Today is the wake (viewing). I am looking forward to seeing him again...I miss him so much already. He was my heart you know. Friends and family have been with with me all week and I look forward to some alone time just to sit in the living room reading and pretending that Bob is at work and will be home any minute now. I just need to do that for a few days. Then deal with as much reality as I can each day. It's not that I can't live alone. I did that very well for over 22 years after I left home at 21.

It's just that I will miss everything about this man who loved me with all his heart, mind, and soul. Even though I am a little over 100 lbs overweight Bob always said I was most beautiful and sexy and was that I was one of the nicest people he knew.

He was a man to be admired. He volunteered a lot of his time to people in recovery and would help anyone he could. I admired him as much as I loved him. The world has lost a great and quietly gentle hero.

I will write soon I just need to get through the next few days...I have lost my soulmate and my heart hurts so much with the pain of missing him.

Love
Carol

Carol: We hurt with you. You have many many people praying for you right now. You just go and do what you need to do and DON'T let anybody tell you how long to grieve or how to grieve. I believe God let's us know when it is time to move to the next step. We love you and know that the very very special man in your life is looking down on you right now!

Carol, I've always believed in Heaven and how wonderful a place it must be. Bob is there now, watching over you and will wait until you and he meet up again some day. In the mean time, you will keep him in a very special place in your heart. Take the time you need. Take care of YOU. And know that we all love you here.

To all the rest of you, hello and I hope everything is going well. We weathered the storm (no pun intended) without too much trouble here. Some power outages (should have gone looking for the flashlights BEFORE the power went out) and lots of tree limbs, branches and leaves blown all over the place. But today, the sun is shining and the wind is blowing the clouds outta here.

And it's my birthday!! It's official. Rich can now trade me in for two 21-year-olds!

Jello: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope ou have a spectacular one!
Gald you weathered the storm ok. The Cubs are playing a doubleheader with the Pirates and I expect it to be a pretty soggy couple of games! Wish they were on tv today.

Carol, I'm glad you're doing OK. I like the way you said, "only as much reality as I can deal with in a day." That resonates with me, I need some escape time too when things are hard. {{{hugs}}} What a wonderful man - I'm glad you got to share in his life for as long as you did! Only too short.

I went to my naturopath again today - I feel ready to take on new challenges again which is a relief over what I was feeling before.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JELLO!!

I've been lost in the boys room today. Started out making the beds and ended up re-arranging.
This weekend will be football mania. Varsity football this evening. DS's Junior football tomorrow. And, DH is going to the Notre Dame football game. rah, rah, rah...

I ate a bowl of icecream this afternoon and now I feel like crap. Cherry Cordial. I don't even really like Cherry Cordial.

Dryer is buzz'n. Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

What a great bday present I got. Power went out at work around 10:30-11:00. Apparently out all over the area including traffic lights. Well, something back in one of our labs didn't like the power going out and caused the fire alarms to go off. There we all are standing outside when the fire trucks come screaming in. What fun.

I asked everyone if this was a surprise party just for me and the firemen were going to start stripping. Not.

Anyway, our prez. called the local electric guys who couldn't even wager a guess as to when the power would be back so ... he let us all go home! Paid day off! We all felt like little kids getting out of school early. Pretty funny - about half the company's employees ended up at a local pub knocking back a few. I just had one light beer and a diet coke and then went on home. Been bumming around ever since.

Rich got me a little TV for in front of my treadmill in my li'l pink room. He's in the course of rewiring, oh, just about everything in the house to get the picture just right. Whatever. Guess now I'll have no excuse for not being on the treadmill, eh?

Well, I'm off. Not doing anything special for the birthday but will probably face a food challenge or two over the weekend. But that's just typical.

Hope you all have a good one.

P.S. DNW, I was thinking of you today. And always. {{{Carol}}}

Jello: Darn, no strippers and FIREMEN to boot. That's ok, I wouldn't mind them with their clothes ON! Keeps us young!

Tig: At least DH didn't go to the ND game last week cause Michigan kicked their behinds. What a waste of money that would be and the TRAFFIC there is always such a nightmare. They had Kelly's graduation (PENN HIGH) at the JACC and even that was a mess.

I just found out that my son must really really love his girlfriend. He gave her a $6000 engagement ring! Sheesh! I figure mine way back when cost around $250. How times have changed!

Carol: Thinking about you this morning and saying a little prayer for your well being. Big hug to you!

Quilt: You're not out in a rowboat quilting are you? Everything ok at your house now that the storm has passed?

Everyone have a great weekend and don't work too hard!

Hey all,

The sun is shining here in MO but it is a chilly morning.

Carol: Take care and hang in there...we all love you and appreciate your posting to let us know how you are doing. I know that must have been difficult for you do at this time.
Sending you a hug from MO

Glad to hear you all weathered the storm, Jello. I hope Quilter was as fortunate.

Happy Birthday, Jello!

Gotta go---puppy chewing somewhere?? I can hear her but not see her......gotta mean trouble!

Have a good weekend all.

Bright

The good news: Went to Delaware Park casino yesterday and came back about $350 richer!

The bad news: Both Rich and I have cards from the casino good for a $20 food voucher to be used during the month of September. (We both have Sept. b-days.) So we had breakfast there and we had lunch there. And the vouchers are use them or lose them so we "had to get" 20 bucks worth of food both times. So it wasn't just eggs for breakfast but also home fries and sticky buns. And it wasn't just a sandwich for lunch but also dessert. Yikes! Lots of eating yesterday.

Lots and lots.

And lots....

Anyway, today's another day and I've got walls to paint. BTW, my li'l pink room is finally done AGAIN. I tried this new painting technique with 4 colors and these double sponge roller things so the li'l pink room's actually pink, peach, lavender and light yellow. Oh so pretty. But it'll always be the li'l pink room to me. Today's room is blues and greens. Stay tuned.

Faye, they say men are supposed to spend something like 2 months' salary on the ring ... or something ridiculous like that. Anyway, I'll bet it's gorgeous!

Brighter, your weather sounds like ours here. A bit cool in the morning but pretty and sunny. Bye bye Isabel, you ol' . Spent part of yesterday afternoon cleaning up twigs and leaves and pine cones from the trees. Things are looking much better around here now.

Carol sweetie, I hope things are going a little better for you. Each day it will get easier. Things will always remind you of Bob and that's the way it should be when a marriage is as wonderful as yours. Take care. Love you.

I have to go. Paint cans await. Last weekend, my black cat had a pink tip on her tail. Can't wait to see what color she is after today....

Hey all,

I changed my avatar to the scale thing because it makes me laugh.....I have a cartoon that has a lady looking for her scale in the bathroom and the scale is hiding against an outside wall as if to say, " oh, no! here she comes again!" My scale is getting a workout these days so it seemed appropriate.

Rainy day here....getting alot done inside but not venturing out much. Day 2 on the phase 2 of SBD and I like the smoothie that is recommended---I made that "lunch" instead of "breakfast".

Emmys are on tonight and got a few more things to get done so I just wanted to check in and say hey.
