Morning Juliet, hope the screamer quiets down!

Sooo happy to hear that all are okay, that was terrible!

Can't page back so will make it short. Stella is heading to Vegas? Watch out!

Going to try and get a little more sleep, if not, a beer in the hot tub. How about Bell's Java Stout? Brewed in Michigan, an American Double Stout, 7.5% alcohol and lovely coffee taste and smell, Beer it's not just for Breakfast anymore.... Cheers

Beans, I sho hope doze doctors get back wif you early in da week. Prayers and hugs for you my dahlink.

Alli, glad you are having fun and you escaped the bad weather as well. Love Love Love our Stella Dancerella!

NM.......LOL at breaking the rules! And I LOVE veggie omelets with leftover veggies. Hope you are enjoying your weekend off and making some DMe time.

That was a nice refreshing swim, thank you very mucho Katharoni! Glad to hear all is ok there and that you were spared. How is dat tummy of youse anyways, Kattycake?

Mema, I might have reported my doctor, but I doubt he put that comment in my records, so it would be his word against mine. Hoping Bella is ok. Dat wus so sweet dat da big brother Baxter wuz woyied bout his lil sister. As for the movie (chick flick) I thought it was good, I enjoyed it. Had Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine.

DorKieDoodle, would love to see anudder picture of you and Lisa and how funny, you winning the yoyo contest. You did good gibbing us da Stella, who would have thunked she would be so much fun. OOOoooooo, ICK, that picture you posted is GROSS. Why do kids do those things????

Stella, you can sneak others dwinks, but we better not catch you trying to put wodka in you eyes. And if I hear you tried that, I will take ALL of your shoes away. And that is so sweet of Mema to let you bisit wif her.

Waving HI to Unde' and her brother.

Karen, have a super time with your friend today. Hope you have lots to LAUGH and SMILE about.

Juliet, you work in a hospital or something. This person that is yelling, are they really in danger? I think you have said what you do, but I foygot.

Scuby, you post a lot of beers that are brewed in MI. That being where I am from, I had no idea so many breweries there! Guess I lived a sheltered life. Stella is going to NEVADA, I think it would be a BAD BAD thing if she were to get to Vegas. Mema, you better keep a close eye on dat girl.

Lets have a JAMAICAN YOYO for our DOTD

1 ½ oz Tia Maria Coffee Liqueur

1 ½ oz Rum

AKA - Sugar Lusty Heat! Hair pictures on my profile. DON'T LOOK DOWN ON ANYBODY, UNLESS YOU'RE PICKING THEM UP!

SO, guess I will hab to wait till middle of April to know foah shuah....mese habbing de endoscopy de foist Friday of April. Just realized my DD and I will be traveling home from Lisbon on Apr 2, the anniv date of my dx (4 yrs ago). BUT since we will be flying first class, and getting into all the business class lounges in Paris and Atl, we can celebrate that too!!! Nice way to celebrate dat horrible day.

Any newer galz who might wonder why we mention ChEARS, or as Dorkie mentioned sometin bout cheers and ears....I will 'splain. About 3 yrs ago b4 one of my twips to OZ, I read that an Aussie cheer was "Cheers Big Ears, (to respond with) Same goes, Big Nose!"  Of course when we met our relatives in Sydney for the first time, and I said that, they looked at me like I was crazy....they had never heard of it....LOL. So, we sumtimes jest say "ChEARS"....dats da scoop. No, not doggie poop, or pooper scooper, just scoop.

Scooby, a coffee type of beer.....hmmmmmmmmm. You come up with the most interesting BOTD's! Hope youse iz feelin mucho bettah! And you and Dorkie gib ea udder some big hugs for us all....and take pics....I know Lori and others mentioned that, but I am seconding it!

Too many of youze galz iz woiking tuedey....and I bet our Dorkie is woiking from home today. Speaking of our AdorKable.....ummmm......weally??? Dat guy was horrid to see! Imagine how he will look as an old man, dat is, if he makes it to old age.....and I can picture him in de hospital for sumtin, w/out dose tings in his skin, and dat loose skin just hangin down....icccckkkkkk! Hope you are doing well todey and will have a real good visit wid your PS tomorrow!! Hope you can get a good date for de soigery. And hug Lisa for us too!!

Beansie Dollink, are you doing ok toodey??? Sure hope so. Youze has had a lot of scares lately and also a lot of woik. Weze misses youze when youze don't get to be here as muchly. MUAH!

Mema, Gwad your cupcakes toined out...we sure lubs dem, and nuttin cud be easier! How is de Bella de Ball toodey?

Gud luck wid de packing Unde! And Karen, soooo gwad your wines came in! Had a nice steak dinner at my parents last night, but my mom was having an off day, and didn't even know what the microwave was. That really broke my heart. Glad that my dad still functions so well, as he has to double check everything she does. She bought a new keyboard, and I was setting it up for her, but dang even I had trouble figuring it all out. I hope she can use it like she wants to. They also mentioned wanting a treadmill here (although my dad walks every morning, don't know why he doesnt' just insist my mom go with him)....not sure where a treadmill would go! I think sometimes she thinks she wants something, very seriously, then the next day would not remember that. Oh, it is so heartbreaking. I know so many of you are going thru similar things with your parents.

Lovely weather today....hoping the same for all of you lovelies! Still lots of pictures in the paper every day of the tornado damage...very sad, but we were fortunate not to have lost anyone that day....I think only 1 in AL, but 38 total in other states from tornadoes that day. Have a gud dey, girlz! Me? I'm gonna sit right on this lounge chair and hab those Tia Maria/Rum dwinks! Ahh, Pants even put a teeny umbrella in my dwink, since it is such a nice sunny day at the HTL>

ChEARS!

Good morning, Loungettes! Slept incredibly late again, which I suppose means I still need the rest. Definitely feeling better, though. Time to start intensively researching adult asthma and figuring out how to keep from becoming another "damned cancer patient overreacting" in someone's ER. And, no, I will not be going back to the one I was at, already told them that. Hmmm, I wonder if I should talk to someone at the insurance company about what happened and see if I can hit them financially, too. Snow to sleet to rain yesterday, 42 degrees this morning, what a weather picture. Sheesh!


Stella--I picked each pair of shoes thinking especially of YOU, glad I could find some that you liked! ;)

Mema--floating in the pool is such a relaxing thing, I could do it for hours and days and weeks and, well, you get the picture!

Wahine--They say looking at things through water makes them look bigger, so should Mr. Big be Mr. Bigger when he's in his swim trunks?


Mema--Bella must be looking BOOTIFUL now! They can be wiggly though, can't they? Next time we'll need before, during and after pix to see the transformation!


Husker--I had the same question!

DorrKy--I'll have some cop porn with my dwinkies! I love the buttery salty very very bad for you kind like you get at the movies. Yum!

Karen--I had never thought about Kosher wine, but it makes sense. Have you ever compared non-Kosher wine to Kosher? I'm just curious if there's any difference, I don't know Kosher rules well enough to know if the wine I make would fall into that category or not. Maybe it's the additives that make a difference? My apologies if I'm getting too personal or anything, I'm really curious about differences in religious observations, rites, rituals and such. The more I learn about different religions the more I find they have similarities rather than differences. And I hope the wine helps with the anxiety, too. Anything going on we can help with in that department? And it's perfectly ok to tell me I'm getting to be a busy body.


DorK--I've met people with holes in their heads, but this guy takes the cake!


Undy--happy packing! Personally, I like to pack with a glass of something in one hand and my packing list in the other. Usually works out ok, and if I forget something I have a convenient excuse!

Bernie--LOL!!

Juliet--screaming they can't breathe? Sounds a little contradictory, but then, having been in that situation. . . . Hope that situation got fixed PDQ!

Goldie--Tha Jamacian YoYO sounds yummy! I never could get a yoyo to do very much, not even just up and down reliably! Ah, well, not all of us are so talented!

Oh yeah, Karen you were mentioning having Triscuits with wine, and Dotty was saying how good Triscuits are. Do either of you get the "Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil" Triscuits? I love those the best, and will drizzle ex-virg olive oil on it and sprinkle italian seasoning on top....YUMM! (BTW, I also like olive oil and italian seasoning on my popcorn, but recently tried some of the good tasting coconut oil on popcorn (I mean COP PORN), and it was yummy too)!

Need some more Jamaican YoYo dwinks puleez, Pants!!!

Hola chicas! On the way home, catching uP on iPhone. We had sooooo much fun. Just dropped off Stella at the airPort, she is on her way to Denver, very excited. Dork, thank u for telling your peeps to get that creepy guy out of the HTL! He was horrid! Cant wait to see a pic of your hilites! I am jealous! And love the new name Katharoni, lol.
The last dance was at ten this am. Every year at this event, Jamie picks a charity, and Sunday at ten she charges $5 admission to learn a new dance from a real good instructor. SO we went, and entry ticket was a pink rubber bracelet that says dancing for a cause, with a Pink ribbon, which I thought was sweet, she picked breast cancer. Well, I am running race for the cure in Indy April 21st, and she knows this, so at end of lesson, she presents me with a $1,000.00 check made out to Komen race for the cure. Was very swee, very cool. DH knew, and didn't tell me. Anyway, thought I'd share that with y'all! Gotta charge my phone now, check back later!

Happy Sundey Fundey goils!

I am getting ready to log into work and try to get a few hours in while my brain is working. I stayed up so late last night, could not sleep. But I suspect that is because I had two percocets with dinner last night.I think I am falling apart. The bursitis in my leg is acting up again and nothing seems to help. The meds just make me not care lol.

Alli, how nice that your friend collected all that money to pass to you for Komen! And it sounds like ebery one had a blast. But where is Stella going in CO? I thought she was going to fly into Las Vegas? Who is picking her up? Darn, she has become so independent since the first time I sent her to Lori's place. She used to refuse to go anywhere by herself.

Karen, i would be very interesting in hearing more about keeping it kosher. If Stella is coming your way, she will have to abide by your house rules. I know a bit about it from my Jewish friends but would love to learn more.

NM, loved your post again today. You are on a roll goil. I loved most the gal under de water whose head looked teeny tiny. I have always gotten a kick out of the illusions of water. The next time you get into a pool, you need to tilt your head sideways and watch how the water appears to be only a few inches deep. I hope you are feeling well and hope you find the answers you are looking for with the asthma.  I know it is not a laughing matter, I lost a girlfriend from childhood who had an asthma attack and dropped dead in her bathroom on a sunday morning while preparing for Church. So sad. I worry when you can't breathe and think of my friend whenever you talk about it. 

Lori, sorry about that gross pic I posted. I was searching for a photo of ears when I came across that pic. I though he looked a lot like John Boy but agree that the pic was enough to make me wanna purge. I hope it has warmed up there for you, I cannot believe how the weater changed there. Like the others, I had also thought of AZ as always being warm. I have learned a lot from you. I will try to get a photo and de Dork and Scuby tomorree, can't wait to see my Lisa! I am not dreading monkey day as much as usual since I get to see one of my fabborite goils. We will exchange hugs and toast all yese goils. 

Mema, I hope your Bella is doing better today. And yes, berry cute that Baxter was looking after his lil sister. Your fur babies are stinking adorable. I know Stella will lub dem. I hope you got de info from Tied dat you were looking for. It is so nice to have pwofessional fwends here to turn to. We have our nurse, our gwoomer, our irrigation specialist, our teachers and counselors, decorators, nail experts and of course Stella who is an expert in dwinking and making twouble. Really though, you get my point. 

Katharoonie, we do have the Cracked Pepper andOlive oil triscuits here. I put a little fat free motz on them and melt it. The motz tastes buttery on the triscuits and is to die for. Add a few grapes and badabing, got a great snack with wine. I do not drink wine often but enjoy a glass or two now and then. That is what I dwink when trying to act classy. So glad you are back to eating some good steaks, nothing better than a steak dinner! Maybe de tenders can soyve some up for us.  How are your tootsies feeling? I hope better. 

Beanie, it is sundey fundey, I pray dat you habing some fun and not working or stressing. I am in need of a long bisit to de htl chapel. I have not been to church since 2011 and am ashamed of mese. But I will be sure to say some prayers for your physical and mental health. I am sending you some big  cyber huggies. 

And Julia, yes, we want to know where you are woryking where dere is peole screaming. Does not sound fun. I see why you'd like to down a few dwinks while woyking, dose people would make me wanna dwink. Tanks for saying more, wese wanna know you better, dats all. 

Lisa, hope you got some sleep dis weekend. Can't wait to see you. Will call you when I get out of de office. Hoping to get my soygery date tomorree. Mixed emotions on dat subject.

Well gotsta pop into work for a few hours so that I am not stuck working until midnight tomorree. I will have a better idea where I will be workwise once I get my surgery date. Still can't believe I hate to go back in again. Ughh, and people wonder why I dwink!!

Unde' was nice to see you. kristy, you too, don't be strangers goils, pop in often.  And Kymn, get id here - you will feel better, dis I pwomise.

well, we are home. DorK, Stella went to see Mema, that's where she said she was going anyway. Memasue, let us know when she gets there, K? And you may want to wait til tomorrow to go gamblin, cause I only danced about half as much as Stella, and my legs and feet are killin me, so I know Stella's hurtin!

As for the tornado, we drove through Henryville on our way home. Absolutely devastating. We live about 15 minutes from the bridge that crosses over to Indiana, and Henryville, IN is 19 miles from there. The exit was closed, only open to locals. It was completely flat, never seen something so bad. Don't know if you have heard about the 14 month old baby girl they found alive in a field 20 miles from her home. She is at Kosair Children's hospital here in downtown Louisville, with her grandfather and aunt. Her 21 year old father, 20 year old mother, 2 year old brother, and 2 month old sister were all killed in the tornado. USA Today online has the whole story, so heartbreaking. And so very close to home, too. Kathy, been thinking of you and where you go for shelter. You need to get the door switched to manual in case of power outages. When this happens, it happens so quick! The next door neighbor to the family that died sent her husband next door to tell the family to come to their bigger home, and the tornado swept him up before he could get back. So sad.

OK, gonna go unpack, just wanted to check in, and tell u all about the baby girl. Please pray for her and her family! Love you girls, so glad u all are safe and sound

Allison....its a bit early for me to pop the cork, but I'll be joining you shortly....but it will be red wine....That is soooo sad about that family.  I can't even imagine their pain.   I remember in 1974 driving from Columbus to Cincinnati with my mother and I forget the name of the town now, but it looking really eeary out....sky very black....well we drove by just before a massive tornado struck the town and wipe just about everything out.....Denver doesn't get many tornadoes, but the eastern plains do and a town near Kansas was devastated a few years ago.

DD is on her way home from her week-end in the mountains...she called about 20 minutes ago to say they were just leaving....My guess is she won't be home before 6:30...but she said she had a good time.

Speaking of good times....my gf and I chatted for 3 hours....we meet at Einsteins......she retired from teacher many years ago, but has substituted or worked part-time...this year she is working 4 days/week and work is definitely getting in the way of play...and on Fridays she drives up to Boulder to pick up her 6 year old grandson from kdg.....She works in the old school district where I used to work....Came home and took Mischa for a walk to the park...about an hour...think it is a bit much for her....then took Bear for a short walk....neither dog likes being left behind, but I can't take both at the same time...well I can as long as I don't see other dogs, but since thats not likely to happen its one at a time....It is just beautiful here today....like spring...sunny, blue sky, light breeze and near 60...think its supposed to be nice the early part of the week. 

My mom sent me a very generous check the other day.....I told her it was totally unneccesary and she said to me "it was necessary to her"....so what could I say but THANK YOU.....so it got me thinking that I want to go back to Israel again this summer...told that to DH and he said go....so started looking into things.....might as well take advantage of the travel while I can.....DD is going to camp again for the month.....Speaking of DD....she is truly an amazing kid....we were talking about my folks and she said to me....maybe we could both go to Florida this summer and I could stay with Papa and she and grandma could go way somewhere for a few days.....I had been thinking the same thing.....I told Mom about it the other day and she said, "sounds good to me"....so we will have to do it.....and I also want to go see DD and SIL.....so might just have to be gone for over a month again this summer.....its cheaper to do all the trips together....Will keep you posted on any travel that comes together, but for now, no trips planned......

Just hearing a feel good story on the news.....a 10 year old girl calls 911 in the car with her mom when mom is having a diabetic episode...her two younger sisters were also in the car.....she was able to tell the operator where they were and read the Bridgestone sign....they sent the police....car was still driving when the police arrived....The mom is doing okay....Such a brave girl....and I didn't even do justice in telling the story!!!!  So heartwarming.....

DorK....you are working way too hard...no wonder you got that raise....more than deserving!!!

Kathy...how are you doing...are the storms passed in your area?

NM....how are you....on the mend?  where did you find those boots?  not that I want a pair...

Mena...did Stella arrive?  is she behaving in the casinos?  I got worried when someone said she was on her way to CO as I wasn't quite ready for her....but she is welcome later this month....maybe during my spring break and I can put her to work cleaning my house for Passosver!!!!  that should keep her out of trouble!!!

Julie....what is "pcu"....can't quite figure out the acronym...pediatric care unit? 

Beans....how are you doing?  when do you see the doctor again....prayers for only good news....

Tiey.....how are things by you...

Chrissy...its the count down til you get your new knee...Did i tell you your new glassses are sooo cute!!!

Okay....I'm leaving a few loungettes out....Hope everyone is having a good Sunnday....Hugs....

Oh Alli, that is horribly sad, beyond sad. To have an entitre family wiped out. Was hoping the baby would survive, but while I was still reading. read your latest msg that the baby had died too. Henryville got so totally wiped out, and that is pretty close to you, considering how wide tornados can be, and how they can  change direction. Just devastating. I am very glad you were ok, though. Thank God.

Joining ebbery1 for some white wine...moscato actually. The beyotch sister is actually being rude to me in emails...sheesh....some people I just don't understand! So I need da vino too! Karen, so nice of your mom to send you that money, and hoping a good trip will come out of it! Sweet of your DD to offer to stay with her grandpa.....if its too much for her to do, maybe someone can come in at times.

Hugs to all, very thankful for all of you,

Katharoni

Kathy....DD isn't going to stay with my dad...she is only turning 14...she is going to go way with grandma (which grandma needs) and I'll stay with papa...don't want Mom driving too far.....so depending on where they go, I might drive them....or I need to rent a car for me and Dad....not a big deal.....but the check from my mom is going to be for ME!!!!!  Everytime someone gives me money, I put it away to save for my next trip to Israel!!!!! 

Okay....just about time to pour the first glass of wine....need to make myself do my homework for my glass...the homework that is past two by way too long.....next assignment is due in a week.....and waiting for DD to get home so I can pick her up...they are stuck in traffic from the mountains so it might be past 6:30 till they get here.....need to wait till she gets home to eat dinner or she'll be upset if she has to eat alone...Sundays are what we call "catch as you can" or "whatever" night....everyone just makes what they want to eat...leftovers or whatever!!!!

Sorta like Karen's brother's wife, I cannot refer to this mean person as my sister, so she is my ex-sister. Can't spill all da beans here....out of respect for our own Beannie....j/k, but it is too long a story. Suffice it to say that she now has our parents fooled, and is taking over everything. She used to be mean to them too, but now its mainly directed at me. Now, don't anyone fall cuz of all dese spilled beans all over da floor.

Goodness sakes!  I get a couple days of nice weather, keep myself occupied in the yard..........and you girls post FOUR pages!!  Dorthy is right.........we talk alot!! LOL

MemaSue-PM'd ya a bunch of infor, but then had an after thought....I know it's yucky, but lets think Anal Glands.  The swelling is whats got me thinking that direction.  Hard to "talk" you through it, but...is her little bottom is actually swollen to the point of protruding.....let's get her right in to the Vet to have her glands expressed (5 min and painless, really) normally a groomer could and should do it each visit, but if theres a possible infection present (swelling would indicate) let's let the vet handle that.  Please let me know how she's doing.

Unde-Hope you are getting all that packing done and enjoying the time with your brother.

THANKS again to everyone of you who commented on my issue with the PS.  Should hear from the new one tomorrow for an appt.

SO GLAD that all you girls in bad weatherville are safe and sound!!  That's super scary stuff.

I'm lost, lol...........where is Stella???

Good morning, Loungettes! Welcome to another Monday! I finally feel like enough of the steroid stuff is out of my system that I am starting to feel normal again. Or as close to normal as I ever get, anyway. Didn't get much housework done yesterday but I did get some seeds started. Got a new toy-it's a wooden roller thingy that you roll newspaper around, then press it into a base and it makes little seedling pots that will decompose when the plant is transplanted into the garden. Probably too early to be starting seeds here, but I just HAD to try it out and do SOMETHING other than sit around being tired and worrying about every cough.

 


DorKy-I hear you about pain making you fall apart. Pain medications actually interfere with normal sleep cycles, so it's kind of a no-win situation. At least the meds make you not care for a while, that IS a helpful, if only briefly. I've been digging into my resources about asthma and have decided that I want to have a thorough eval with a pulmonologist and get a real monitoring and management plan set up. I do NOT want to go through what I did ever again, and I'm at risk because I will delay going to the ED or calling 911 knowing that I'm likely to get blown off as a "damned cancer patient overreacting." Anyway, I've got to get off that and start living again, or I will drive myself nuts!

Juliet-Ah, I used to work PICU way back in the day, I understand. Funny, I remember still hearing a lot of screaming when I moved from PICU to NICU, only then it was coming from the parents or the staff! I did learn that 60 seconds of compassionate listening and reassurance often worked better than any amount of valium.  {Added:  PICU = pediatric intensive care unit,.  NICU = neonatal intensive care unit}

Mrs. Vino-I was just hearing on the news about a toddler found in a field near her home after a tornado that died during the night, I think, from her injuries. Such a sad and scary thing. Things that happen so fast are so frightening. Woops, I'm behind again, that's what I get for going to bed at a reasonable hour. Even if I get up at a reasonable hour I miss stuff. Just as glad to have missed that until now, though.

 

Karen-having 2 doggies makes for twice the walks and exercise, maybe I should think about getting another dog myself? Nah, Sadie is too much of a single furbaby to go for that. WOW, your Mom sounds like a great woman. And now you can start planning another summer trip, I think I'm jealous! Lots of visiting going to be going on in your family this summer! I am definitely on the mend now, thank you, and where I find my "special stuff" is top secret! WinkWink

Wahine-family dynamics are just plain fun, aren't they? Pants, Jock, we need a sweep up over here, please!

Tidy-Nice to have a groomer in the house! When Sadie sits with her butt down and her hind legs up and "scoots" along the ground is that a sign of the anal gland thing? I've got to make an appointment for her at the vet for routine stuff soon and want to remember to ask about that, and her eating grass until she throws up sometimes. . . .

Karen-I know about getting behind and wanting to give up, It's a sneaky thing. Got an idea for you-set a timer for 5 minutes and spend that time just getting all the homework stuff together. When the alarm rings, stop. Do something else for a while. Then set it for another 5 minutes and organize the stuff. Keep alternating like that and eventually you will get it all done. The trick is to STOP when the alar goes off and do something else. I often alternate housework and computer play time, and the overwhelming amount of housework (like I have now) is mostly done by lunch time, surprising me. The timer trick takes away the overwhelming feeling of looking at one big job. And make sure you have a glass of vino to sip during your 5 minutes!

Undy-Wow, that's a lot of moving, and a lot of packing, then a lot of unpacking! Drop in when you can to keep us up to date!
