Do NOT leave email at my Bellsouth address. I cannot get into it since they changed their format. AND, my answering machine has bitten the dust. I couldn't even get it to delete messages, then it wouldn't cut off, then it wouldn't let any call be recorded. SO...... The caller ID still works, thank goodness, so if you call, I will find out that way and call you back, okay? OKay!
Thanks!! I am out of my league when it comes to stuff like this!!

Here I am!!

OKay, okay. It has been a while since I have posted anything. But I have been in Chicago, haven't felt hunky dory enough to post, and really didn't have anything to say.
So, what's the buzz, you ask. Well, Chicago is a tiring town. WALK WALK WALK or drive round and round to find a parking place. Thank goodness I can just get in my car and drive off, and when I come home, just pull up in front. But the town is lovely and I had acupuncture! It was odd. Only about four of the needles hurt enough to say "ow" and then they were immediately removed. I saw some new babies, cuties all, and some not even born yet!
We took four cats and Goober up there to be adopted. It hurt very much to give Goober to a new family. She slept in the bed with me all week until Friday when we took her to her new home. She is probably already spoiled. I understand that she wore a Cubs jersey Saturday night and was the queen of a Cubs party! That makes me happy. The cats, Tony and Estelle, went to great homes. I am anxious to see how Tone is doing and yes, I meant to type "Tone" because that is what I called him the most. The little girl kitten may just have found a home with Erica and Fuzzy. No one was in the market for a precious little girl cat, so......
I have had a good health day today. I have been having some horrendous ones lately, but today was okay. Let's just hope and pray that it stays okay. I had a wonderful lunch and supper today, fried rice with shrimp and pork, courtesy of a little Lamb. Thanks again, C.!!! She did a great job of keeping my house from falling apart while I was gone.
Mom is in the nursing home, but she seems to be "coming back" which makes me very happy. Norma is resting at home now, and it will take some time, but she is improving, slowly.
We have a massive flea problem this year. Hopefully, the rain got rid of some of them.
Well, that's all I've got today. When I start to read something or do something at the computer, I get so sleepy!! And sleepy I am right now!! Too bad it is only six p.m. I just can't go to bed that early!!!!!!!
OH, if you send me emails, send them to, not the bellsouth one. For some reason, I cannot get in there now, so I am going back to the tried and true.
Have a great evening people!!!! Oh, and can't you just see Goobie in a Cubs jersey? He is going to send pics of her wearing it. I can't wait!!

This week, so far....

I haven't been up to blogging lately, as evidenced by my lack of blogs. This facial stuff is really the pits! Hurts, hurts, and spasms. I am taking my medicine and hope that it will kick in soon.
Norma is still in the rehab part of the nursing home. We had such high hopes, but then she got a virus and they are having to give her phenergan shots. Needless to say, she is kind of out of it.
Jethro Tull just came on the radio. NIce.....
New couch? I have to cover it with a blanket to keep the scratch marks down. There are already several. What on earth was I thinking? Same with the chair.
WEll, that's all for now. I really have been living the lowest that I can, trying to get well. Hopefully, that will work.
Have a great week, everybody!!

My new appliance!!

YES, I have a new dryer now! The guys were very nice and thanks to Christopher for cleaning up the laundry room. I would have been embarassed had it looked like it did a month ago! The guy tested it and it works fine, so I said "OH BOY!! NOW I CAN DRY CLOTHES!" Then it hit me - that means I have to WORK!! The guy just laughed and said that he tells everyone to work hard now that they have a new appliance! So, mixed emotions all around!
That's it. I had my light off by 8:30 last night and I could go straight to sleep again. I have to check with the doc on Friday to see what medicine is doing this. I mean, I slept well, all night long!!
OK, that's all for now. Take care and have a nice day!!
Oh, and that is the bathing suit I bought. I do NOT look anything like her except I do have a head, arms and legs!!!!! But isn't it pretty??? I want to go swimming!!!

WEll, Norma is doing a tad better, not a whole tad better, just a little tad better! They started her on physical and occupational therapy yesterday and they are really wearing her out, which is good, the faster she gets better, the faster she gets home. Walking around in the nursing home, I pray that I will stay healthy and just go out like a light when it is my time. They have stuff to keep them busy, so that is good and there are obvious friendships among the residents there, but it makes you wonder about what their lives were like before they ended up in this state. Food for thought....
I have been extremely tired, lately, too. After so many weeks of me being sick and unable to do anything, it is tiring to have to be on the go so much. But again, the faster I go, the faster I will be better! My mom isn't doing too well. I fear that she will be in a nursing home in the not to far future. Please remember her in your prayers, along with Norma.
WEll, I am so sleepy and it is not even eight o'clock. I think I am going to have to go to bed very soon, though, the people are bring my dryer first thing in the morning. I need to be up and at 'em by then!
Here is a lovely picture that Jan sent. Enjoy!
