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

Wow, just read on FB that the baby girl passed away at 4:10 pm this evening. That is right when we were driving through. Can not imagine what this family is going through. My heart breaks for them!

awww, Alli, prayers to that entire family.  How very sad.

Juliet, thanks for tailing us where you work, I had a feeling it was a hospital.  I could never deal with that and always appreciate the special people who can. 

Cheers goils!

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,

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!!!!

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!

Kathy, I'm glad your tummy isn't giving you any problems and praying you have a good scope in April. As for any BC dates, I don't celebrate any of them. You and I were diagnosed about the same time. So you and DD can celebrate for me.....lol. DorK had mentioned the yoyo, so that is what I looked for. Oh, you got a teeny umbrella in your dwink? Remember when those were used when someone got their recon and the Tenders would hold them over the nip area so as not to burn??? Sawry to hear mom had a bad day, hoping today is better. I also hope when she IS having a bad day, that she doesn't wander off while your dad is on his walk. That is just so scary Kathy.

YAY NM, glad you are feeling bettah in da head. Looks like mud season is on it's way for you? OMG, I don't think Stella would like THOSE HORSESHOES...........how funny. OMG, sweeping the pop corn up and putting it in the buckets, ewwwwwwww. DH always loves his popcorn when we go to the movies and even brings one home. But he always puts all kinds of other spices and the sprinkle cheese on it. I have to laugh at your "busy body". My mom is known to be one, but my brothers just call her a "nosy f*ck". Oooooh, I have heard of those newspaper seed pots, let me know how you like it. Great advice (as always) for Karen with the timer. I should try that myself. Altho, mine would be to make me stop, and take a break or go do something else!

Ohhhh Alli, what a sweet thing your friend did. Did you cry? I would have! Welcome home. Wonder why Stella had you drop her off at the airport? She has wings and can fly herself. Hmmmmm, I bet she set her bad self in first class so she could drink. Which, wouldn't want her dwinking and flying!

DorK, so sorry your legs are bothering you. You poor dear. You have so much chit to deal wif, but your hardly ebber complain. Me lubs you and I wish I could take some of your pain for you. Good luck today and hoping you and Scuby can hook up. Good point about how all of us can help each other with our different expertises! And you shunt be sorry for the gross picture, I'm sure I'm guilty of the same thing!

Juliet, I thought a hospital or maybe a jail. I thought I remembered you saying something about security? And what is PCU?

Karen, I can't imagine you taking 2 large dogs walking and having a mishap. I wouldn't even try it! How sweet of your mom to send you the check. I'm sure that made HER feel good. And so sweet of your daughter to want to go with you to FL and to let you and mom go away somewhere. Ooops, I see I was cornfused too, about DD staying with your dad. Either way, sweet of her! You had me cracking up when you said Stella couldn't come right now!

Tied.......it's terrible to lose a day, and if you have missed a couple? Well, you see what happens. That is why I hate to go away anywhere!

Unde', your brother is moving in to the place you are moving out of? If so, that's convenient, eh?

LOVE  "MAKING LIFE BETTER"

I'll take 2 for now, thank you. And must get my behind a movin.

Lisa and Dork........hope you can make it work today?

NM, Oh I think I will take a ton  (or pitchers full) of the Making Life Better dwinks....purrfect timing! Yes, family issues suck and why does the evil one always get away with doing the evil deeds??? My Molly drags her butt along the grass or deck at times too, but usually just go get the glands expressed at our annual vet visit. Doesn't usually bother her too much. Sounds like we need to make sure that area is not swollen. Hope your Sadie Ladie does okay....yeah she does sound like she would prefer being a single dog now! SHe is a swetie.

Well Lori, I wish that were true, but after last night, my tummy had terrible pains for hours. I am sure all this drama chit is not doing it any favors. OK we will cewebwate for you too, on April 2! Yes, I do remember when we used the little dwink umbrellas for "nipple sun protectors"! That was wild. We had so many gals having that done around the same time, it seemed. And those tenders would just stand there and hold them over the nips......so sweet of dem! Those were fun days....lots of good memories.

Unde, good luck with your moving! Hope your new place is empty so you have a place to move all your stuff into, before moving your brother into your old place. You will be BIZZZZZZY!!!!

Juliet, we LOVE hearing more from you!!!!

Good luck to Dorkster on her PS visit today! And we will be thinking of (and being jealous!) you and Lisa getting to meet up today! So glad you will be able to see each other for a bit. And DO NOT foget the camera!!!!

TieD, so glad you will interview another PS. Some of us have had bad experiences either of almost going to a bad PS, or actually having surgery from a bad PS. You deserve to be "put back together" as best as possible with someone who does really good work, and cares about the outcome!

Beans, you ok? Mema? Kymnie? Still missing HunkyD and AStorm, though. Have a good MonKey Dey girlz!

Lubs and Hugs, and Big Frosty Mugs,

Katharoni

Another gorgeous day in Cali!  Can't wait to get busy in the yard!  But first, I'm off to the lab and more than likely one of those darned shots, ERRRR!

NM-OMG, I laughed sooo hard when I saw the pic you posted about the scooting!!  Laughed because that's EXACTLY what that lil doggie is up to in that pic :)  So if that's what your Miss Sadie is doing then yes, she's trying to express her own glands, which is pretty icky if she chooses to do it on your carpet, or up against your couch!!!  Do let us know how you like your newspaper pot maker-sounds fun and reminded me of the device my dad used to have that rolled newspapers into a fire-starting log.  Anyone else remember those?

Dork-Sorry you've got so much garbage going on.  Here's a big hug just for you!!!  Hoping you have a wonderful day with no yuckiness.

Karen-You got some good advice!  I also use a similar method, but not a timer.  I just complete a project, let's say dishes, then I get to do something I like, then another project and so on.  Give it a try!  It's a good vicious cycle because you'll find that getting one or two things done will actually motivate you to get more done.  Good luck!!

I'm about half-way through the Taxotere and am having a terrible time with my hands-they said hands and feet may burn and peel.  So far just the hands-olive oil seems to be the best thing over any of the lotions.  I'm noticing though that any little scratch just does NOT want to heal.  Can any of our nurses offer advice?

Alli-Sounds like you had such a wonderful time!!  What a really nice surprise that your friend planned!!  And your DH was soooo sweet keeping the secret!!  How's your piggy?

CHRISSY-Kept meaning to comment-but chemo brain, ya know?!  I SOOOO love your glasses!  Very retro and I love that!  Half my wardrobe is peace sign and/or tiedye!  You're looking good lady!!

Off to the lab girls.  Enjoy your day.

Juliet-one of the things I'm trying to find out about is an asthma management program. The insurance company my employer used to use had a program for that. The new, self-insured system only has an 8 week, generic, child focused on line program. I'm poking around on different hospital websites and such in the area to see if there is anything a bit more informative and not child focused. I've heard rumors of a program run by one of the pulmonologist nearby, but you have to be one of his patients to get in. But, I will find something, even if I have to pay extra for it, just give me time! And I don't mind the bumps, anything that gets spilled on me Sadie licks up and it tickles! Progressive Care sounds a lot like the Step Down Units we have around here-Cardiac step down from Cardiac ICU, Surgical Step down from Surgical ICU, etc. Seeing alcohol withdrawal protocol on a chart always makes me cringe. So unpredictable the behavior, and I can't figure out how to help them, glad I don't have to do that in home care!

Goldie-you mentioned anniversary dates, and I just remembered that I got the diagnosis on March March 9, 2007. And what will I be doing on Wednesday? I'm going to be driving 100 miles to Portland to take the Hospice and Palliative Nurse Certification Exam. Major distraction, and not set up on purpose, that's for sure, but a very interesting coincidence! But it does explain why I'm reacting more intensely than usual to health things. (I will NOT say ‘over reacting')

Wahine-Yeah, Sadie is definitely a single doggy type. She would either be very jealous of another dog or think it was a play toy, and she kinda rough with the play toys!

Tidy-The plant pot gizmo is great fun and works really, really well! Amazing coincidence is that the gizmo makes pots that just fit a wide mouth funnel I have so filling them is really easy and not too messy.

LOL @ Bernie, Karen and Kathy both need to send out some of those! Lol.
Hope everyone's having a great day! Hope Lisa and dork hook up!
I am at the gym, about to get on the treadmill, just wanted to check-in. Toe is feeling much better, just looks awful. Purple, blue, yuck! No swelling or hurting though, and dried up. Going to my dermatologist for annual full body mole check tomorrow, will have her look at it then. And Lori, yes, I did cry when she handed me that check, we were all crying!
Be back later taters!

that pic is from Amazon.com where I bought my gizmo.  Search "potmaker" to find it.

I found others on other sites, but this looked like the best quality and decent price.
