It's been a while since I have posted. A lot has happened. As most of you know, my mother in law, Norma Reid,  passed away on February 6. I visited with her on the 4th, my birthday. She immediately recognized me, told me she liked my blouse, and was generally in an upbeat mood. I told her I would come back later on in the week. Needless to say, the next time I saw her was in the funeral home. She looked beautiful and so at peace, no more pain. Although it was a sad time, I was glad to see all the cousins and nephews and nieces, able to get up to speed on them. One thing Cecil, Norma's brother who passed away in December, and Norma, too, they insisted that we still have the family reunion. It will be really weird, but we will be there, Lord willing.
I think I need cataract surgery. My eye has just gotten so blurry and of course my doctor is off this whole week!!!!  I need to see if it has grown or just allergies or something. Maybe he can give me some drops to put in them, instead of using the Visine I have been using.
I am still in the market for a car. Not as easy as I thought it would be. My car is running fine and all, but I want a newer one. Mine is a 92 Subaru and it has been a good car. I hope to drive my newer car, when I get it, for almost twenty years too!!!!
Well, that's all for now. I will try to be more current in my bloggings. I recommend  you all go to to see Drunk Monkeys. They are really funny, trying all of the different alcohols. You just need to see a few episodes and you will be hooked!

Well, I admit it. I cried myself to sleep last night. Everything was just closing in, another year older and all that jazz. I am just afraid of being alone from now on, and it scares me.
I had a good birthday. I got taken out for lunch, got some neat gifts, just very nice. And Christopher and Katie sent me a tee shirt with Lional Richie on it with the words, Hello. Is it me you're looking for?  I immediately put it on. And then that damn song kept playing through my head!!!!!
Thank everyone for their birthday wishes on Facebook.  Okay, this is gettting all wonky here so that's all for now. And I know there aren't three t's in getting but it is acting all wrong.
Take care and I will talk to you later!

Okay, I didn't post during the holidays. So, sue me!! NOT REALLY!!!  I just didn't feel like writing anything.
My new medicine is making me worse. I go back Thursday and will ask to get off the new and back on the old.
It was 77 degrees here on Saturday. It is 34 now. No wonder everyone is getting sick. I ached all day but it has lessened up so I think I am flu free. I did take the vaccine a few weeks ago, so I should be all right.
I hope everyone had wonderful holidays. Mine were quiet and involved a lot of television watching. I was glad to get the tree down and out of here, to be honest with you. And this 34 degree weather can go with it!!!! I don't want to be hot, I don't want to be cold. I want to be comfy, where you can wear a light sleeve or long sleeves and you won't be too hot or too cold.
Well, this was just a note to say I am still around. I will try to be better on my blogging. Later!!

Today's news is horrific. I can't imagine someone going into an elementary school and killing small children. It really makes it worse that it is a week before Christmas. Just think of all the plans and gifts they had planned.
Our apartment complex had its party yesterday. Lots of food and we got a soft couch throw with Wisconsin Cove embroidered on it! Last year we got air freshener!!! We must be doing pretty good this year!!!
Okay, I watched all the Big Bang Theory dvds. I sure hope Christopher and Katie get them now. It would be my luck that the package gets lost. Keep your fingers crossed.  And of course, the tv is on talking about the tragedy so if there is a problem with the package, well, it's not important in the scheme of things.
I don't have too much to say, so I am going to watch something on my TIVO.  I ordered the new Led Zeppelin dvd and I wish it were here now! I would watch that in a heartbeat!!!
Take care and hug, either physically or long distance (like me!) your kids. Bye, t

Well, tomorrow is the fifth anniversary of David's death. What a wild five years, not counting those when he was sick. Part of me feels like I just talked to him  yesterday, but then I really get to missing him very badly. It is very hard to realize he is still not coming home. I have SO much to tell him!!
I certainly hope the Mayans were wrong. I got Christopher all the seasons of The Big Bang Theory and I want to watch them before I send them. BUT, my dvd player isn't working. Neither is the one that Phil brought over. So, I am going to have to buy a new one. The Big Bang Theory, in my   humble opinion, is just as good as Friends or Seinfeld. They are on every day and I watch 'em all. But they aren't in order so that is why I want to watch Christopher's. And there is a gag reel on all dvds. I really need to see them, for sure!
I've been Christmas shopping, mainly online. There were some bad screwups with these companies, but I think things have been straightened out now. Now, to the wrapping! I HATE wrapping presents because they all look terrible!  I really envy someone who can do a great wrap job.
I found out a lot of my roaches had made their home in my kitchen clock. I junked it, have a new one, so I hope that this will be the end of it. It really was bad at night. At least they weren't cockroaches, just little water roaches, but they are gross, too. Of course, if one slowed down, the Lord called him home, usually with my shoe or the palm of my hand. YUCK!!! Management has really tried to help me with the problem. Now I hope I can tell them I am roach free!!
I am going to take a nap, I think. So everyone have a great evening, and tomorrow, think about David and how great he was. I really do miss that man.
Later, t

I got my hair dyed!!!  It looks great! Lee H. and I picked a color that was near to my natural color and now the gray is gone and it looks  natural!! I am so excited, I want to go     somewhere, but I am kind of tired. I was watching The Chew when the president interrupted. I guess it is newsworthy, but the chew was answering questions about T'giving!! That's what I would rather hear!!  And I will miss The Talk, which I enjoy. Oh well, I GOT MY HAIR DYED!! Nothing can bother me now!!!!
That's all for now!!! I GOT MY HAIR DYED!! can you tell I am excited!!!!!????? Later, tricia

Well, I have had an exciting couple of days!!  Erica was here to take me to Mistletoe Market and we had a blast, AFTER she got me a wheelchair to push me around in.  I just cannot walk for very long and I end up wringing wet with sweat and aching horrendously. This time I got to see all the boothes and even though I planned to do Christmas shopping, everything I bought WAS FOR ME!!!!! And then the day she left, we went to TJ Maxx and got some good deals. No wheelchair there, I sat a lot on benches! Thank goodness for benches!!
I see on Waldie's World website that Diana and Jim, Katie's parents, made it okay to Africa. I think it is an understatement that I can't go if I have to pushed in a wheelchair at Mistletoe Market!!!!! They'd be carrying me off the plane on a gurney!!!! They plan to do some camping and site seeing while they are there. I am jealous, I want to see my boy!!!!   But I will just have to wait, I guess.
What else has happened? I got a new lipstick today. It's bright coral. I am just too washed out and I am thisclose to coloring my hair, not highlights, just a light brown that would just give me some color. What say everybody about that? Jean, that means you!!!!!
My mother in law, Norma, fell last night and is in bed on painkillers. She is to have an MRI next week to see what all the damage was. They went to the ER but they gave her the pain pills and sent her home because there was nothing they could do and staying in the hospital would just be a waste of time and money. So, I will let you know how all of her tests turn out, when I find out.
So, I am out of things to say now. I am going to TRY to go to church tomorrow. After all, I have new shirts!!! Christmas presents FROM me, TO me!!!!
Take care everyone and we will dish later!!!!!    t
