I slept well without any covers over me, that is how perfect the room temp is. Typically, it has been quite cold in these rooms.

Calm down, that's just one judge's ruling that the gay marriage ban is unconstitutional. The marriages aren't legal yet. The legislative branch makes laws, not the judicial. I predict this will be challenged.

It *is* unconstitutional which is why the courts keep saying it. But, if it helps you get through another day without putting a gun in your mouth, keep thinking that things will change to be the way YOU think they should be.

Number one, it was a FEDERAL judge that made the ruling. Since when does a federal judge rule on state matters?

Two, marriage is not a defined *right* in the constitution.-(If it was, I could marry a horse and no one could say boo about it)

This was an unconstitutional ruling by an unqualified judge to rule in such matters and will be fought -(and won)- by the appellate STATE court.

Dam that Constitution thing! Always getting in the way!

Christmas Light? Sure can and sure do! Some years I get a boat parade going with some of my friends, hard to get it all coordinated though. But ever Christmas Eve, I go out with my Kenny G Christmas music blasting (dont judge me!)

so, anyone with experience with mood stabilizers, especially for those who tend towards depression, is it common to "flake out" and act spacy/buzzed/alzheimers-ish?

hot mess SIL came over to bake cookies today, and from the start had some difficulties, but it got worse during the day. at one point, she was asking me something about a dentist appointment she though i went with her on, another question about someone i had with me when i ran into her at shopko... Neither of which happened. she was wobbly on her feet at times too... she would change subjects in the middle of sentences, start talking about "steve" then refer to "her" in the next sentence. she came in and out of it, and would apologize saying she didn't know what was up when she was whacked out. it got less bad after she ate (probably her first real meal of the day at 5pm).

plus, she thinks whenever we don't text her back right away that we're mad at her, so she thought when we asked for clarification (b/c we had NO idea WTF she was talking about) that we were either messing with her or mad at her. that's getting old, and even harder to deal with when she's out of it like she was today.

OY! I knew it could be a day, but this was more than i bargained for! any insights would be helpful & appreciated. And, if applicable, you're welcome for the laughs. hubby & i will laugh at this some day...

oh, and another sign of how out of it she'd get... SIL was getting mad at me because i was laughing at how she was trying to figure out the phone. i so wanted to tell her taht phones don't have "on demand" buttons, but i decided to be nice and hand her the phone instead....

they couldn't write a better comedy, adn hubby was sorry he missed it, but it was freaky to be a part of that.

I don't know much but it sounds like she either needs her meds rechecked by her shrink/doctor, or she's overtaking/abusing them.

She sure as hell shouldn't be driving!

Sounds her meds need to be readjusted by her doc, or she's abusing/over taking them.

yup, we too think it's time for another adjustment... she's tried a couple different things, and half of them make her too dopey (even worse than today). we walk a fine line between being supportive and being "big brotherly." We're about the only ones who are supportive at our best, neutral at worst. even her kids bitch about her conditon and lot in life.

SIL is aware of what's going on... she said after one particularly daffy conversation that she hates feeling like this. we mentioned that maybe she should check in with her therapist on the side effects... oy.
