    Hi everyone - wow, the days have just flown by - I went back to the May thread and got caught up.

    Star - my heart goes out to you, this is a time of big ups and downs, but you will make it - you are grateful for sobriety, and the chance to be with family as much as possible. Don't forget that healing and comforting can happen long-distance - sending prayers really does work, I believe, as does visualising the other person. Sending you big hugs.

    Lav - don't ever lose your edge! What would we do without your Lav-an-itude?!

    Dill - sorry about the down-feeling times. As a lifer with low-level depression, I am finally learning 'this too shall pass' also applies to those hard times. Remember when we used to say 'dark-side-of-the-moon' times? I'll be right over for dinner - the thought of someone else making dinner for me is fabulous!

    Pauly - hang in there, girl!

    Pap - hope you are well.

    I've just done 2 trips to NYC - on Sunday, driving out of the city in a thunder and lightening full out storm, whew. I've never seen lightening go down a city block before. My cell phone kept beeping alerts for flooding - sheesh. But I made it home. Took the train yesterday, and won't have to go back until next week, because....

    We have a VIP house guest coming tomorrow through Monday morning. I'm trying to get caught up on my other business today, as well as laundry, make the gardens and lawn look nice, plan meals, shop, wash the dogs....OK, I'll get done whatever I get done. One thing HAS to be done - hem curtains for the guest room!

    I'll let you know how it goes; I'll have more 'screen time' in the next few days than I have had recently.

    Wishing all well, and hoping that great full moon energy will lift us all up - grateful to you all!

    Hi everyone, just a quick check in here today.

    Glad to see you Cyn, missed you!

    Star, chigger bites last for several days. I found that painting them with clear nail polish helped with the itching. I can't remember where I got that remedy from but it helped.

    Hi Lav and Pauly! Sorry this is so short! Hope to do better tomorrow.

    Good morning...

    Lav, yes my siblings are wonderful. I am so lucky in that regard. They are good men who want to do the right thing, whatever that may be. Glad YB was there for you even if he was grumpy. Is that his middle name? I agree with you, there is no winning the battle with booze. We win when we leave it alone, focus on living our lives, there are so many good and amazing things to focus on. How was lunch with your friend? It has slowly warmed up this week, into the 70s, perfect weather.

    Cyn, good to hear from you and thanks for the support. My Dad has been offered help but is refusing it right now, not thinking right I guess. It is a difficult time and good to have family support. You sound especially busy right now. I always drive through whatever weather comes along and it can be scary!!!! Hope you can have some fun with your VIP guest this weekend, and hope you get to go out to dinner sometimes too!

    Dill, the weekend is getting closer, any special plans?

    Pauly, hope you are doing well with all your visitors.

    Have a good one.

    Good morning friends,

    Happy Thursday to all! It's still raining here, oh well. I hate getting behind with gardening chores when you know this rain is supersizing the weeds, ha ha!!

    Star, glad your support team is in place & working together.
    We have to remember to not 'force help' on an individual until they are ready to accept help. Most people try to maintain their independence, including decision making as long as possible. I do know how difficult it is to be the observer & not able to jump in & 'fix' things for our loved ones. You are doing great, hang in there.

    Hi Dill, sounds like you are busy!

    Cyn, good to see you!
    Don't wear yourself out prepping for your house guest. You really don't have to have everything perfect. We hereby give you permission to slack off a bit, LOL

    Greetings Pauly & Papmom!

    I had a nice time with my friend yesterday - good to catch up & compare notes
    I'm heading to Curves shortly then would love to get a few plants in my raised beds this afternoon if the rain gives us a break. I'm hanging on to watermelon, cantaloupe & zucchini plants that really want to get in the dirt

    Have a great AF Thursday everyone!

    Lav
    AF since 03/26/09

    Hello friends, sorry to have to stop in quickly yet again. This day got away from me fast! I'm just back from a day on the lake with Mr. D and my widowed friend. I am getting ready to go right back out because there is a public meeting about the drug epidemic across the nation and state. The meeting is to discuss ideas and options and I want to put in my 2 cents if anyone will listen!

    I'll be back tomorrow and again will try to do better!

    Good morning all...

    Lav, you are right about family members, and we are hoping he accepts the agency that will come in and help with anything, to keep his independence. If not, he may end up in rehab or something. It is up to him. Have fun planting your veggies and fruit. It has been dry here again and warmer so should be coming your way.

    Dill, are you going to a town hall meeting? Let us know.

    Off to get ready for work. Yay, its Friday!!!

    Good morning all!

    Thanks for the permission to do less, Lav! As it happens, so much of what I was trying to accomplish was stuff that I wanted to get done for us as well, but carving out the time has been tricky. But now things look so pretty! Screen porch all clean, deck set up and with flowers, deck tomatoes in their pots, garden things put away, one bed mulched (2 more to go, but oh well). All this in the last weeks and yesterday, and though tired, I am happy! (I thought of you all while I was ironing my guest's sheets - I think the last time I did that was last year when she visited!)

    Star - I commend you for being so level-headed and open-hearted in this situation. Your Dad and the whole family are benefiting from your presence, I am sure. Take care of yourself through it all...

    Dill - a town meeting, wow, that sounds interesting. Can't wait to hear about it, and what your 2 cents are.

    Pauly - hope you are doing OK with your houseful.

    Lav - that's the struggle I have with nature - it has its own timeline! I'm hoping to at least get the mulch down on the super-weedy garden beds (I'm putting down newspaper first) - otherwise in a few days they will be overrun.

    Today is my birthday, so I'm going to try to 'chill' out. We'll be taking a nice long ride to show our friend a different part of the country - the Berkshires, where we used to live. That will be fun, that's where HB and I were married, so it will be a nice trip down memory lane. I shared my birthday with my Mom, so there will be lots of memories there too.

    Grateful to have you all in my life!

    Good morning friends,

    Cloudy & 55 degrees again, what happened to summer? I'm sure it will come back with a real vengeance as it usually does around here, ha ha!

    Dill, do you live in an area patrolled by local. county or state police?
    They have all been trained to handle ODs & every officer now carries Narcan to administer immediately. Some families of drug users opt to do the same. No more waiting for EMS to arrive. YB & his officers on campus carry it as well.
    As a country we really need to get together & stop this epidemic! Hope your meeting was fruitful.

    Star, it certainly sounds like you & your family are all doing the right thing for your Dad. I can't even imagine what it takes to process & accept the fact that you are nearing the end of your life. I've witnessed patients go through all sorts of emotions ranging from anger & denial to fear & defeat. That's why I am such a firm believer in hospice care. It provides care & comfort for the individual & for the family

    Cyn, I am fairly certain pigs will fly before I ever iron sheets, ha ha! I do remember having to press pillow cases when I was a kid. Thank the heavens for permanent press these days!
    We are waiting for drier weather so we can lay down a layer of black mesh before we plant the watermelon & cantaloupe. Otherwise the plants would get lost in the weeds. We have insane weeds in our gardens!!! Enjoy your VIP guest this weekend, be nice to yourself. Before I forget - HAPPY BIRTHDAY

    Greetings Pauly & Papmom - what's happening with the two of you?

    OK, first I go to Curves then back here for some work.
    This afternoon I am making my first ever batch of white bean 'meatballs'. I'll let you know how they turn out
    Have a great AF day everyone!

    Lav
