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.

awww, feel better soon

Next week my daughter and kids.......oh yes....I said kids. Elena is 21/2 and her baby brother is Jesse 5 weeks old. Well, they are coming over with her mother in law and the boys with my hubby will tent in the backyard and the girls will have a spa day in the house. Sounds perfect to me.

Everyone have a great day

Battling a flea infestation on my furbabies. The fleas are super bad here this year. I got some flea sprays that are organic for both of them, since their flea shampoos were doing a minimal job on killing the fleas. Sprayed their bedding down too. Will use it on the carpet too.
