I guess when everyone found out Angelique wasn't real? IDK - I was "gone" then. JayLee told me about it some at the time when we got together once, but I don't even remember.

So how are all you little worker bees today?
I am pumping the gas out of my boat 'cause I got water in there. So if I start acting a little loopy later you'll know why.

I splurged and bought the cats a really expensive dry food, one of those all natural things with dried blueberries, etc. "Blue" something in the label, etc. they weren't too jazzed about it. I feed them all the canned they can eat, so rose was eating a lot of canned food. Cheap canned food, so she was crapping like a hungover frat boy (seriously, there were things in there that were so huge, it had to hurt). Then I ran out of IAMS, which I was mixing with the new expensive stuff. The couple of times I made it to the store (I no longer am driving), they were out of their IAMS. Then I gave up on trying to get them to eat the expensive dry and started feeding it to the stray toms that came to my back porch.
I started feeding my cats the cheap clearance crap from Walmart that I had bought for the stray toms. They liked it okay. Rose would eat all the canned she was given, then finish Mia's. She was becoming a real pig.
Finally got a bag of IAMS and now Rosie camps out and chows on dry, wants far less canned, and the litter box looks much better. She walks away before eating all the canned she is given. So she isn't a huge pig, the poor girl just was hungry without her favorite dry food!
When I had a cat many years ago, I made the mistake of feeding that cat those little Fancy Feast cat food cans. Always had dry food as well. Never would touch another brand of wet food. It had to be Fancy Feast or nothing. Damn cats.:D It was a beautiful kitty. Got out once and I believe someone stole her.:(

Me,too. That was so heartwarming; it's beautiful to see a kid think outside himself like that.

He is a big softie. Now my friends have friended him on FB. My gift to my wonderful, generous mom is to just start fresh with him and play nice. Isn't that what you would want as a mom?
Yes of course.

My SIL and her sister do not get along. This year the sister refused to come to Thanksgiving with the family and insisted that their mom choose which house she would go to.

Based on that family's history, I don't predict a resolution. Thanksgiving was way too pleasant and lacked drama .

You are lucky in that respect.

Got a text from a friend inviting me to lunch at the last minute. In 30 mnutes, I showered, did bandages, makeup, and hair, got dressed, put on jewelry, took my meds, packed my meds, packed more bandages, called a cab (which got her right away!), and was out the door! It felt good to be forced to become human so quickly!

Friend is showing up in an hour after her last final exam (nursing school), then the rest of the women from my softball team (co-ed, so only three more women) will show up this evening to help me hang Christmas lights. It will be good to have all five women together for the first time since the season ended.

Had an extra half hour at Macy's in downtown Mpls, so I bought myself some gorgeous Ralph Lauren red leather gloves and a nice pair of black lined ones for Nick's mom for Christmas. Ate a ginormous salad (yay fiber!) and it was a $12 lunch worth every penny.

I'm exhausted from the walking, but in a great mood.

I found a family to take all my camping gear and that makes me very, very happy.

For anyone who goes to my Caringbridge site, my mom finally postd and I think you'll get a chuckle out of it, especially if you read my post about biting kids who were mean to a handicapped girl at the bus stop.

I did all the time. I can't remember who was on WCFL (their rival) at the time. Do you?

And cheluzal, I bragged about your awesome care of your brother to my mom, including the expensive hospital bed, and she likes you a lot for that, because she would have done the same thing.
Awww....how sweet are you and your mom?
I'm proud of my family for coming together. Apparently, it is a rare thing, according to health care workers. ;p

Love it.
One of my prouder moments was when I was in 10th grade and bro was in 8th. He was coming home from school very maudlin and I finally coached it out that he was being bullied once they got off the bus. I told him I would take care of it.
Next day I hid behind a shed near the road and waited. Can still see his wide eyes scanning all around (still breaks my heart that for a few seconds he thought I forgot about him).
I let the doosh kid put down his trumpet and walk toward my bro, then I screamed "HEY!" and came storming out from that shed.
Got right in his face and told him what he'd done and what he'd stop doing if he valued his life. Others kids cracking up.
He never messed with bro again.

I detest bullies who do stupid things just because they can. Bro was pretty little and quiet growing up.....ugh......I'm still filled with rage picturing it.

I've turned into an adult.
I've realized how life is all work in places you mostly hate by people who usually detest.

Ugh.....think I need a new school. I'm so fed up. I hate that we spend so much of our lives at work only to be mostly unsatisfied.
