Hi Ms Lots. Your page is a wow! I am doing fine. It is snowing here today and feels like winter. I just got up from a knap. How is the kitty doing? I bet you still think about Suri though too? Them darn doggies they are like people for sure.
Hi Ellen- Your page is so pretty !!! You are really being tested for everything. I had a nerve conduction test a few years ago, and I didn't particularly like it. I hope it turns out well for you. My BG #'s are better then they were. Jim is taking a large dose of coumadin (14 mg.) It seems he has a genetic mutation that doesn't allow him to use the coumadin properly and he needs a larger dose. I am not used to him being the one with the medical problems, it is usually me. Between D and PD and a few other small problems I am the one who is medically challenged. I hope you have a nice weekend. Hope you cleared up your desk. Cat
IS it Friday yet? Yes. Russ could not sleep and neither could I we both got up. Tom is usually here but his cat not well. They have spent over $2000 now. Right now they have a bag of medicine and a needle they have to shhot him 3 times a week. They thought he might need dialysis. O love animals but doubt I would spent that amountof money. Nerve conduction tests not too bad but sometimes he has to press a certain way and that hurts, I have had every test he offers, Russ's face is a mess he is red I thik due to blood thinner. The blood is all caked in the bandages bear the nose. Friday at 2 he goes to get stitches out. Saturday Holy Day of Obligation and we go again Sunday. I hope things are better with you. We are supposed to go to Gainesville for a few days but might change our mind. Your oage is very festive...love it. Take good care. I care. HUUGS,Reed
lots, that nerve test is uncomfortable, but you will get through it. it's not unbearable. I don't know how to describe it properly, just know we are all thinking of you, and we love ya, hope to see you around here soon.
Sheeeooot - tried to copy your cool cat video to show Dave & somehow managed to delete the entire comment instead! Geez I hate it when my fingers match my hair colour! I have the Jingle Cats CD in the background playing loudly when I tape our outgoing Christmas phone message. I natter on about Dave being up on the roof cleaning up the reindeer droppings from last year & how I'm trying to teach the sugarplum faeries how to dance while the cats practice their carols. I think people call here to listen to the message sometimes. Ditto all year though since the 'regular' message is also kinda funny. "We're unable or unwilling to take your call... we'll fight over who gets to respond and the winner or loser, depending on your message, will get back to you... Go ahead, it's only a machine, what could possibly go wrong go wrong go wrong..." Some people can't even talk after they hear it & have to phone back (& listen to it again!)
So I Love these cute videos & it's often tricky to copy them to my own file without joining facebook or twitter. Having typed that, we might have to start texting (a short 20 years after it starts) as I find I'm hiding from everyone all the time - all year - just so I don't have to stand for 1/2 hr listening to their tax problems/complaints/questions. I can't fetch our mail from the neighbour in less than an hour. The other side too! Only she can't hear me either! She hears Dave just fine but it's really irritating when she tells me how horrible her tax problem is & won't listen or hear the simple solution.
I can't take phone calls either -same reason. Even Dave's family NEVER emails me unless they have complicated tax questions that require hours of typing/research to respond to. Yet my own mother still takes her simple little seniors pensions tax return to a lawyer she barely knows. What's wrong with people? Other people of course. Not counting you, me & the cats.
So I'm hiding in the house now - or back at our other house - afraid to come home or see anyone - just 'cuz I don't feel like trying to remember what they did on their taxes 6 mo. ago so I can answer their stupid questions over & over again. I'm cutting down the PITA clients this year anyway, but there's not much I can do about family/friends who 'use' me. We even turned down a Christmas dinner invitation because we both know when we get there I'll be asked all kinds of tax questions & they'll want to show me their 'new computer' + ask how to set it up to do this or that. Do I know how? If I say 'No', they still ask me to try cuz I'm so friggin smart! If they only knew how hard that is to do - to think up hard stuff like that on the spot when my head is nowhere near that kind of thing. I would so love to ditch this so-called career completely & forever. If I hadn't made so many promises to people (like the mortgage company) & if they weren't so damned pitiful/ stupid /friends of Dave's.
Anyway, obviously I'm having a 'poor me' day as I try to wrap gifts & prepare cards for DAVE's family. None of these are for anyone in my family because I haven't heard from them in 12 year. I've got Dave's 2 sisters, his son's family, dtrs, grandkids, friends - only one here related to me is a tax crony (who insists on buying me a kitty calendar every year) & our family doctor.
This whole 'cheery christmas' act gets soo stale soo soon anymore. I can claim November is too early but December, well we can't put it off much longer. Gotta get stuff in the mail to Dave's family in Ireland & the US. My family are all local - just not family.
Dave's outside chopping wood so he doesn't have to answer the phone. He hates it too & knows dang well why they're asking for me. I figure that's why doctors have unlisted numbers & never attend neighbourhood gatherings. They get this same kind of onslaught every time they see people. I just wish I got
Lovely holiday page,Elleb. I would love to send you a card if you would trust me with your address, Put it in a PM> Rough days. I was stunned someone ordered 7 gift baskets using my name and credit card number. They had to go very deep to get Russ's cancer checked went in and got more. The surgeon who did the reconstruction was a very young woman. I guess Russ had her in stitches, She took skin from ear and cheek. He was bandahed with wicks bloody looked like Frankenstein. Went back today just a small bandage by nose where she cut and stitched keep it moist with vaseline. He is tired. I have to go to TOPS a big shot coming. I was going to take a taxi but Russ said he would drive. Tom's cat was in hospital 6 days kidney infection home now prescription food etc cost over $1800. Gorgeous weather here. STOVE DID NOT COME TOM THEM POLITELY TO GO TO H...we are going soon to Sears. They have one just like mine delivery Friday. I was going to make a casserole and remembered I do not have an oven. Strange what we get used to. How are thins with you? I walked out of the pain clinic waiting in a room over an hour just to get a pill. Knock on wood my knees are pretty good. Take good care of yourself. I look forward to your pretty page. HUGS,Reed
Lots,that owl you sent me-he is such a handsome fellow :) I LOVE this page and how you got the Christmas pictures to come up first to match the page ? The Christmas Trees up top are sooo pretty...This page will be hard to top but then again you always do it..have a good day friend :)
Hi Lots- How are you doing ? and how is Zen doing ? How are your stomach problems coming along ? I hope the new medicine is working. Jim and I are OK. His INR was going up slowly last week. He gets another blood test tomorrow. My BG is staying in the proper zone for me. My latest A1c is 6.9%, not too bad after the stressful couple of months I had. Today is my g-son, Jack's 7th b-day. His parents got him a new bike and said it was from us. I never know what to get him. Hope you have a great week. Take care. Cat
that was a hard choice-I think you made a good one though...the birds had a better chance I think of getting a home.Cats,there are so many needing a home-and dogs.I had birds yrs ago and they were sweet to have :)
"Just a reminder, or a heads up if you didn't know... TuD is having it's annual campaign during December. The goal is to raise $20,000 (or more!) by December 31. You can check the progress by the syringe at the top of the home page
Glad Russ likes scrambled eggs. All set to use the oven. It done died. Maybe the turkey was too much for it. Will call the appliance man. I hope I do not need a bew stove. CYBER MONDAY I went crazy and bought all my Christmas gifts great sales 50% off on many items. TOPS tomorrow. Double fines if they gain. I should not be upset about the oven it is original to the house. How are you feeling. I hope much better. Marie got snow. It was 79 here. I hope you have a good night. Please pray I do not need a new stove. HUGS,Reed
