Welcome. This is called the insomnia thread, but we post 24/7/365. We call ourselves Owlettes :)

No nastiness, bullying, stalking or such allowed. I would like to keep the kind fabric of this thread intact.

Discussion will flow where it will as all threads do. This will be a happy place. I hope with lots of laughing. Talk of things, needs, rants as your mood or thoughts take you. Each person here has a history of helping others. Threads develop pseudo family groups. Fancy way to say we become like family. This family will have all the best a family has to offer, but none of the negatives.

Oh I get that feeling when I walk Williamsburg. It just draws me in, like I can envision it back in the day. Being an east coast gal, I found the landscape in Colorado and Wyoming overpowering when you think how long it took the mountains to get to the height they are and gorges/canyons to be cut. And knowing you are on a caldera in Yellowstone and the destruction that took place the last time it went off leaves me speechless. That trip had such a calming effect on me.

Junie and Shep think of the two of you often. Hope all is coming along for you.

Jaymeb, you asked about Patty. She was in the hospital but is now home. Hospice is managing her pain meds. Here is a link to her thread so you can check in on her. https://community.breastcancer.org/forum/8/topics/834945?page=109#idx_3251

Been busy since family went back to Japan. Taking hubby to the doctors and tests and a couple of appointments for me thrown in there. Had to have our roof recoated and the bathroom skylight fixed as a pane of glass slipped out. Luckily, it didn't break. Painting the outside done, inside have a couple of rooms to do as I know the color I want. The rest will have to wait until I can make that decision since I will have to live with it for a while. Next project will be to get the rest of my photos in order so my kids won't go "who the heck are those people" when it comes to the past ancestors and work some more on family genealogy.

Egads, I love your sense of humor. You are a natural!

Sas, glad you are thrifting again. It's been awhile hasn't it? You get such good finds.

Lover has been quiet. Is she ok?

David Baldacci's new book is calling so I'll say night, night ladies and good morning feline.

Hi Kathy, not so much non thritfing as not finding something---rare-----I think I have found something with this candle holder that is rare. Spent hours today. The base goes back may be several hundred years. But the handled doesn't. A puzzle. I just love this little piece. Worked on it many hours. It has perfect hand balance for someone walking through the night. All five fingers are engaged. It's a holding of the handle. What's unique is that it supports the whole hand.. five fingers and hand

I looked at hundreds of candle thingy's today........ nothing supported this candle. I'm sure,,I have something very old.

Kath - Williamsburg is near and dear to my heart too! Glad I made you chuckle. :)

Sas - I hope you weren't planing on 'offing' someone with that candlestick holder!! I don't care what kind of grip it has....stay away from Ms. Peacock AND the library! We can't afford your bail! Btw..how did shopping and eating go today? Did you tow the line or am I gonna have to track down a holder of my own? ;)))))

Mommy - yay to 2 treatments left! Send the heat up here...I'm damp and cold! Can't tell you how jealous I am of some temps I'm reading thru the threads!

Kathindc - What is the title of David Baldacci's newest book? I love his writing.

Ok, after waiting for 21 days to get the appt. for a PET scan, today I got up at 7:00 a.m. to get ready to take the train to the hospital in Portland (55 miles). I get to the hospital at 12:00 p.m. (2 hours early) and go to check in. The receptionist then asks have I fasted for at least 6 hours. I say NO, was I supposed to? No one from your hospital/dept. communicated this to me. Receptionist says, "sorry but we are going to have to cancel your appt." I'll just say I was/am seriously ticked off. Then after I left the Radiation Dept. my phone rings and they let me know that unless I have someone with me next time to watch Kirby in the lobby while I have my scan I can't bring him either. Again something else they failed to inform me of. I then spent the next 4 hours waiting for my friend to get off of work so I could ride home with her.

This whole fiasco has now caused me to have to cancel my appt. next Monday with my MO because there won't be any scan results, plus it will delay any treatment I will get by at least 2 - 3 weeks. In the mean time I sit and worry what my BC is doing in my body. I did stop by the Patient Relations Office, but doubt anything will come of it. Such a waste of time, money, etc. for nothing.

The PET scan is now rescheduled for July 10th.

Egads & Wren - It was 75 degrees here today and overcast with some sun today.

The title for that one is The Road to Mercy. i miss the Camel Club series. Once I start one of his books, I find it hard to put down. That is absolutely inexcusable what radiology did to you.

Kathindc - I was so sad when "The Camel Club" series ended. I also really liked the ones with Will Robie. I have not read but one of the Amos Decker books yet. I'll keep a look out for his new series in November. Our local library will have them.

Kirby is doing great. He'll be 2 already in October. Hard to believe.

Egads - I did ask to be put on their cancellation list, but with the commute from here, etc. it would be difficult to pull off on short notice. The local hospital has a PET scanner, but their radiologists are useless and I refuse to go there. The hospital in Portland is a teaching hospital and has all of the hi-tech machines that smaller communities can't afford. Plus, their radiologists seem much more on top of things and more detailed when diagnosing.

Ok, I am off to get ready to go volunteer today. Have a good day to all and hopfully no one melts away.

Who was complaining about the heat? Hah!


DD2 had swim competition this past and previous weekend. It was wicked hot! 106 F on SaturdaySickTired Feel bad for those who have to make a living outdoors.

JNC, DD is doing ok. Echocardiogram was normal and the Holter monitor picked up two increased heart rate. One was when she was working out and the other while she was coaching the kids. Not significant I guess. Still no answer as to why she had the event that scared the living day lights out of her mom.

Kath, I was just taking a break :) Life can be exhausting with all the worries. I wasn't feeling myself. No energy. Dizziness. Pin and needles in my muscles and bones. Sinus pain. Just yucky feeling all around. Doc thought I had Mononucleosis. Blood test showed no active Mono, just past exposure. Feeling almost myself now. How is DH? How are you? Mine is upset at me at the moment. He is sleeping in the guest room. Oh well.

Mags!! Lol at Olivia.

Ms. Sas, love the wedding dress. Classic.

Egads, I fell off the wagon in Las Vagas :( Just like Eeyore, I can't do without rice or noodles. I am cutting back on them by half though. Hard to change culture. I did try the breakfast muffin recipe. Delicious. Even better the next day. Wait...you are eating crickets now? Now that is primitive. A true cav woman.

Queenie, no jury duty for me either.

Hi.  I'm a fellow insomniac or Owlette.  I blame it on working nights for a total of 12 years before I retired from nursing.

I used to try to hide me sleeping til about 11 am.  But then I thought it's not like I'm sleeping 12 hours!  It's like I can only get to sleep around 3.  I tell my mother, "Mom, don't call in the morning and ask why I didn't answer".  But she still does.  

Sorry the world does not revolve around Your schedule , it revolves around mine.  I could clean house at 10pm.  I baked cookies last night at 1 am.  They were awful. Tomorrow I'm carb free for my PET scan . (my first).

I am depressed, I cry, I say I'm not ready to die yet.  Who's going to take care of my chickens?  I have a new truck.  I started planting veggies and flowers.  I need my house painted.  I just paid someone last week to clean up my yard!  I'm just not ready to say good bye.  My truck only has 4,000 miles on it!

To top it all off, I have to go buy sweat pants tomorrow because I have NO pants without zippers, and I have NO long sleeve shirts either.  I don't even own a wireless bra.  I guess I'll be at Walmart tomorrow because I have my first PET scan on Tuesday.  

I'm glad someone's awake at this hour!
