Default Re: Come For Tea

Joyce, your brother is in my prayers--That's such a blow to learn. And I hope your doctor has read the reports and somehow is able to talk with you on Monday--so frustrating--praying for peace while you finish waiting. Yes, springtime has a way of demanding a LOT... can be hard not to overdo.

Sue, you have been really busy! Busy with loving family and loads of friends, and it is hard to leave what you love doing, even if there is no choice. But to be able to sing is really cool! I do that in my head now, which isn't helpful added to my current concentration problems. No dementia, just a lot of effort to do very little... leaving me in sort of a fog. I hope your summer is wonderful. You certainly live in a beautiful state--and a cool one during summertime.

Laurel, I hope your day has been lovely. I haven't been in western CA, but expect you also have wonderful summer weather!

My day's been an easy one. I'm getting used to using a trackball while in bed with the laptop. The trackball sits on me since it's so lightweight--something Phil bought due to carpel tunnel then just changed to his left hand with the mouse, leaving the trackball in it's box, unopened. I love it being on my lap (have to raise arms to type), but find it hard to click in the places I need--lots of movement in that ball, which is annoying. I'm hoping it's like using a thimble...practice enough and it becomes natural.

I hope you all have a lovely evening!

Kimberely, sorry you can't sleep. But am so very glad the wedding went well. Isnt it nice to approve of the new son in law. Latkes new husband (my eldest who got married last August) is great and so is Jonny Annas fiancÚ. Hope we can see some photos of you all.
It's good that the bottom worked. It's very useful for neck issues.
Try and count some sheep and get some shut eye. I have just gone to bed, I am back to taking amytriptyline, which is helping emensley.
Just take a tiny dose, but at last I am getting a decent sleep.

Nighty night
Aly

Kimberly, I'm so glad you were able to walk down that aisle with elegance. And how exciting the Botox helped. Congratulations on getting a new son. That's so good you feel this way about him--Aly, I'm glad you feel the same about your SIL and the SIL to come.

Aly, love my A. (Amitriptyline is too much to say, let alone type).

I hope all have a refreshing day today.

joyce- so sorry about your brother.
been a bad weekend. a friends dad was killed last night at 6pm- his truck was hit by a train. he and his passenger didnt make it.
at a loss for words as this is impacting a very good friend of mine (not the child of the man killed) and i cannot imagine the pain the family is going through right now. after i leave my PALS today, i will be going over to give my condolences to the family.

have been down lately, so havent felt up to posting much.

French Creek Ranch B&B, my home, was where we spent last night! No snow, green grass, trees budding out and three horses in the pasture looked mighty good when we pulled in around 5:30 last evening. Our bed felt so good when we crawled in. Kathy had ironed our sheets so I felt like a real guest.

All in all it was a good trip but I will say this one was harder on me than our trip in February. I think it will propabably be my last road trip East. I did notice my oxygen levels were better at sea level but my balance and strength are worse now -- maybe with a few days of rest and no driving I will get my land legs back! If not, I will transition to the power scooter/hover chair and eventually the pc that is in the garage charging.

I have missed this tea party and the chatter -- you guuys and girls make me smile and LOL at your tales.

Sue, sounds like your brother is a keeper, as Ann would say. Giving up a job is a tough transition -- One that I am fighting to do and can't quite learn to say "no vacancy" when people call.

Kimberly and Helen - slow down ladies. Between the two of you, and Joyce and Aly I get tired just reading your posts.

Liz, cheer up girlfriend -- spring is in the air - even in Wisconsin.

Avril, hope your mom is comfortable and you are taking care of you now that Hospice is helping out.

Ann, I use a big ball instead of a mouse and after some practice you will find it a breeze... it is all in a light touch.

Tim has fixed us a light brunch - omlettes and ham with OJ and yogurt with berries. Smells good - He has missed the kitchen and we are both tired of eating out. Races on TV today -- much more to my liking since I can read and glance at the screen occassionally.!

Liz, so sorry about the accident and the deaths. I'm thinking of you today....and I do love you, dear Liz.

Marta, now that you all know, I can just say A--and you'll know I'm not taking Aly at night! or Avril! I'm sure you follow my drift.

Diane, welcome home! I never considered that living approximately at sea level helps my breathing. I'm glad you came home to find springtime at the ranch--helps the spirits a lot. I am glad you like the "big ball"--my touch isn't always very well controlled. I intend to make it work.

Yikes. I have to wait several seconds for each letter to turn up here at the forum as I type. It isn't happening anywhere else. Strange indeed.

Hope everyone's day is safe and also lovely.

Big sigh of relief-- shutdown the computer, did a scan finding no problems, and returned to normal typing. Since microsoft crashes me every few days, I mistakenly thought I was shut down...but this typing slowdown has been getting progressively worse for a while now.

Diane, I'm impressed you will now join T in watching the races on television... where you can read at the same time. I've never wanted to read while anything other than soft music plays. We had a discussion about racing during dinner last night... and the various kinds...as well as the engineering greats and why their designs were not allowed... leading to "why racing began". A veritable encyclopedia.

Hi All. Firstly I need to say #%^}{ to my spell check on my iPad for putting in something weird instead of Katie for my daughters name and bottom instead of botox. Kimberley can hardly have a bottom for treatmentvon her neck andvi would never call a child, whatever came up. Lol

Dianne glad you are back home safe and sound after yout wonderful but tiring trip.

Liz, I am so sorry about the accident, hang in there. I bet you are a great support for your friend.

Was it Joni trying not to sell her house? I thought it was Lori, not sure. It's so hard to get muddled when you are almost 50 yikes!

Ann glad the new ball is working. You will need to handle it with care. They are just so sensitive! Well that sounds just plain wrong! But you know what I mean

Everybody that I have missed. Have a lovely Sunday. Monday is still dark outside here. So not sure how the day will turn out. I am going to plant an English knot garden ( not sure of the spelling) buxus hedge, symmetrical, formal, you know the type? Can't wait to get started.

Luv y'all Aly

Aly, I am trying to play nicely...and with a light touch--please know you did make me laugh. Yes, an "English Knot Garden"--Go, Aly! Wait! Did you check with Hubby? We don't want any more crossed wires to wreak havoc.

And you're right--Lori doesn't want her house to sell. Good job.

So, you have a "Katie" as well as Anna, O, and who is your fourth daughter? And your dear Sam...The Boy!

Well, We're in hearing distance of the village fire dept. Something has happened causing lots of bells and whistles, and while Phil went out to bush hog a couple of hours ago, there was no familiar sound. Imagination is often a bad thing to be kept under control--he reacts violently to hornets, bees, etc., a lot of which have nests throughout the woods. Thank God I just heard the tractor start up and begin making a racket. Big sigh of relief.
