    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Good morning and thanks everyone for the possible mold issue. I will need to look into that for sure. Big Al keep fighting. Hope today is an easier day for you. Pauly thanks so much for checking in. We have all been thinking of you. Although I can’t imagine what you are going through I was also a widow when I was in my 40’s. Its a scary place to be. Hang onto your friends and family for now until you can find your way. Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way. Another 24 for me please and thank you.

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Expecting that the weather forecasters might be right with their prediction of rain and thunderstorms, we hiked at a local park yesterday in beautiful sunshine. Mrs QW is not able to walk as far as she could a few years ago so we’ve adjusted our activities to match her ability. It’s frustrating for both of us, and a bit scary.
    We watched our grandsons soccer game last evening and by the end, Mrs QW was beyond tired. And it seems this morning her meds are taking longer than usual to take effect.

    I mentioned price gouging the other day. Another form is what is being called shrinkflation. That’s where you get 5 bagels instead of 6 in the bag, where the yogurt container isn’t as full as it used to be, cereal boxes being labelled as Family Size but are actually smaller yet the prices remain the same or go higher. And the promised relief at the gas pump is still eluding us.

    Pauly, so great to hear from you. Big hugs!

    Have a great af Tuesday everyone.

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    I had the strangest dream last night. All of the women here in the cafe had a big party and everyone was drinking. It was so bizzare and unsettling to say the least! I was happy to wake up and realize that it was only a dream.

    Thanks for coming back Paully and hope that are doing a little better.

    24 more for all of us please...

    What a nightmare, Jude! But it is good that you had such a negative reaction to the dream, IMO.

    QW, I really hope that Mrs. QW's meds kicked in and I am sorry she is struggling so. Perhaps her meds need adjustment. I totally agree with your second statement in your tagline at the bottom of your post.

    I cannot believe that June is almost over! Time is flying! Best enjoyed AF...

    24 more please and thank you.
    Dill

    Donít forget, you can: start late, start over, be unsure, try and fail AND STILL SUCCEED!

    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

    5:26am in Alberta, I'll have another 24 please, and thanks...

    In the last 24 hours, these friends have signed in for 24 hours of wellness:
    @dill @Jude58 @Rava @Quit wining @paulywogg abcowboy

    Today is going to be a darn good day not to drink!
    Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
    Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

    You go ahead and talk about hubs all you want Pauly! I think recalling all those memories is a good part of the grieving process! And be sure to lean on us if you need us for anything, I imagine you're worried a bit about what the future holds for you so let us help you in any way we can

    Your dream wasn't a total nightmare Jude, you got to meet all the ladies here! Make sure the next party is AF and you'd better invite the guys as well lol.

    Do the PD meds change quite often QW? I know my thyroid dosage has been bouncing around the last few years but Doc says it's because of hormonal changes as we get older.

    Raining here this morning, and my truck goes in for it's first windshield replacement this morning. I might just come straight back home once that's done and play hooky from work lol.

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Pauly, getting and staying sober was a great gift you gave hubby, and yourself. And as Cowboy mentioned, share as many memories as you like with your Cafe friends. We’re here for you.

    Adjusting PD meds is a regular occurrence for Mrs QW. Her neurologist has OK’d increasing her daily pill intake depending on the day. She currently takes 18 pills at various times through the day. Merck created Sinemet, an excellent drug that made daily living much easier but then generics took over, Merck stopped making Sinemet and we’ve found, along with other PD patients, that the generics just aren’t as effective. I’d like to thank Merck for creating Sinemet but give them a swift kick for abandoning patients who benefitted from it.
    As an example, yesterday morning, before the meds kicked in, her hands were shaking so bad she couldn’t hold a cup. Her voice was barely audible and she was understandably frustrated. Each day can be so different so we never know what to expect.

    Jude, next party please invite us guys, have no alcohol, and see if Cowboy will cook for us! I’ll bring the beef!!

    Off for a walk and then grocery shopping.

    Have a great af Wednesday everyone!
