Thank you for the birthday wishes :) I am closer to 40 than I am to 30, but I love it! It has been a long couple of weeks around here, but the family is all hanging out in the living room now (using electronics, but still hanging out together) and my husband looks so happy to have his family with him and no drama. We need a night like this :)

So on Wednesday, I went to the doctor for a diagnosis re my weak and painful fingers and hands and wrists. He said it was carpal tunnel likely caused by.packing up moving boxes, combined with how I bend my wrists when I sleep.

After five nights of wearing the wrist braces while sleeping, the improvement is AMAZING. I can't believe it. Not only is the pain significantly reduced but I have strength back. Last week I couldn't lift my lightweight typing stand to put it on my shelf. I couldn't carry four reams of paper.

I couldn't take the cap off a tube of Chapstick with my left hand.

Now I can. I called his nurse yesterday to give her the news and was very happy for me and said he'd be very pleased to hear that the progress had been so swift.

Yay"

Sorry about your gramma, AS.

Chicago voters have elected another black democrat to replace Jessie Jr.

Those people just can't learn, can they?

Obama raised taxes on 77% of Americans but refuses to cut what would amount to one cent of every dollar the government spends. Tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend some more. The democrat way...

Very sorry to hear that. I hope you have lots of great memories of her to get you through this rough time.

No they didn't. It was just a primary.

You'll have to save your diatribe until some time in April.

(((Hugs AS)))

You and all of your family are in my thoughts and prayers. The next few days will be draining, but I hope that you are able to share happy memories and stories with your family and friends to help you smile through your tears.

No matter how much we can honestly say that someone led a good, long life and they are now at peace, it still hurts to lose them. We are here if you need to talk about it or to escape.

Sorry, AS. But dying in one's sleep at a ripe old age sounds like the ideal way to leave the world, doesn't it?

You're going to be exhausted on Sunday. Hang in there! I recommend taking Monday off from work as a buffer day!

So my abby column is gone but my response is there. It may take a few minutes for the column to show up again. If it doesn't, google "Dear Abby" and the first linbk should be to uexpress -- click on that and you'll see today's column.

Have you guys seen this video that is going around on FB? It is similar to some of the feel good hs sports stories that we have heard about over the past couple of years, but there is a twist at the end. I love hearing about people being kind to each other :)

It's ok, you dont practice your faith anyway. Your just part of the machine, a drone churned out at 13, cannon fodder for the lords army and all that.
