    Re: Sweet September

    Good morning....

    Grandson still sleeping so here I go.

    Skendall, did not mean to leave you out yesterday, I always post early morning so not always 100% with it. Love your dream! It sounds like it symbolizes you taking care of business. I have been trying to remember my dreams and writing them down. No dreams I can remember last night. I need to practice I think. Yes, lots of paperwork when someone passes, the gov't always makes a hard situation even harder. Hope you feel better.

    Pauly, saw the pics on FB of the beach. We went to Santa Monica in March and I was not impressed either, too many people, the beach itself was huge, but loved the Pacific Ocean. Lucky you. It is hard to travel with a group. I know. You have to give things up if you travel with people, not do everything you want to, maybe eat at places you wouldn't normally go, but it does make it interesting. I loved hearing that Louie enjoyed the beach and ocean, lovely to see kids in the moment like that. They are in heaven.

    Cyn, good point on so many illnesses starting in the gut, I never thought of it quite like that. Great if you can meet your deductible. The stock market talk scares me, I know there will be a correction but hopefully not like 2008, that was a depression time for the US with unprecedented losses. Bush was helpless against it as he was not bright, but Obama was able to help our country rebound pretty quickly. 45 is an idiot and would make a bad situation worse, we know he is a terrible business man and president. Yikes. Hope you can rest, get in a few naps, pamper yourself, you deserve it.

    Lav, we are lucky to have our grandson weekly, next year he will go to pre-school every day so will not be able to take him during the week. Everything changes, right? I am working on being happy no matter what, and I DO trust happiness, I realize it is a choice in most cases. My son was over yesterday, he is so good to his nephew, but he is so pessimistic. He was focusing on something at work that did not go well, and his negativity just oozed out, it was not fun to be around him, for me. I always worry about him, he was even unhappy as a little kid, I always blamed myself, so did my husband, but that is just how he is. Very sad for him, and not easy for us. I often think of the lesson I am to learn from having him in my life and it is patience, compassion and kindness.

    OK, have a great Hump Day all, AF of course.

    Re: Sweet September

    Morning friends,Star one of my favorite things I ever heard was"attitudes are contagious,, make yours worth catching" and it's true! Can be in the best mood sometimes and a coworker,friend,one of the kids is being a bummer then I start to get it I told Louie yesterday that I like being around him cuz he's always happy and everyone should be like him still putting my stuff away from our trip,I had just put all the bags on my bedroom floor and it's feeling oppressive! Lav,we need bomb shelters I think,very scary about what's going on in the world but everyone just is talking about the football players doing their thing,we have bigger fish to fry, was watching an older episode of Shark Tank the other night and they were at some event and I heard "the president of the united states" and Obama walked out,oh my God I wish he still was! Cyn,is your throat better? I wonder why fruits give you guys trouble? I actually don't care for fruit much anyways, hi SK,wishing us all a wonderful AF Wednesday
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    Re: Sweet September

    Good evening folks,

    Hump day is about over & we had tropical heat & humidity today - yuck!
    Not moving to FL in this lifetime, I know that for sure, ha ha!!!

    Star, glad you are enjoying your grandson's stay.
    About your son - he seems to almost thrive on drama, am I right? Some people are like that & it certainly can be annoying. Chronic low level depression is a drag too.
    Folks like that just drain you, I get that. I wonder what would make him happy. I'm still wondering what would make YB be happy. How do you go about talking someone into choosing happiness? Hmm.
    YB was supposed to go on a fishing trip with our son tomorrow but the trip was cancelled due to dangerous high waves. I guess Maria is still messing around with us.

    Pauly, good for you recognizing Louie as a happiness buddy
    I guess I have plenty of room here to start digging a bomb shelter but frankly I would go nuts in one of those things. What would the world look like when you emerged from your shelter. Would it be worth it? I don't know. I continue my peaceful resistance, I call & email our reps daily. And I pray that someone with some sense is keeping a close eye on #45 & will prevent him from doing too much damage

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are feeling better.
    Hello to SK & the same goes for you!

    Have a nice night everyone!

    Re: Sweet September

    Hi guys!
    Sorry to miss posting last night, I attended a class on Emergency Preparedness (since that subject is also part of my presentations) and it was interesting. A much wider range of subjects than I deal with , it was taught by a National Guard person, so he had interesting examples. There was a video on what to do if you are in an active shooter situation, and it was great. Here are the takeaways: A: whenever you are in a public place, take a look around you and know where the exits are, 1) if you suspect a shooter, leave everything behind and RUN to an exit - try to get people to come with you, but if they refuse, keep going, seconds count, 2) HIDE - find something to shelter under or behind, block the door if you can, 3) if there is no escape, FIGHT with whatever you can find chairs, tables, fire extiguishers, whatever. (I remember when Gabby Gifford was shot, someone took the shooter down with a folding chair...) I had actually never thought about what to do in that situation, so now I am glad to have a plan tucked away in my head... you never know these days... Hope this info helps.

    Star, I'm glad grandson slept in a little bit! Sorry your son struggles so much - I wish dietary changes were easier to achieve, so much of the stiff I research now indicates that the gut has so much to do with mental states. My own low-level depression has pretty much lifted since quitting drinking AND changing my diet. God luck to you and to him! You are great to think about what the situation is teaching you -- that's an amazing perspective.

    Pauly, glad that your little buddy is a happy guy! I'm sure that's because you two are fun together. Uuugh, luggage! It really can be hard to empty out, and then the laundry... have fun with all of that! Ha!

    Lav, I read something back way back in the day (by the Diamonds?) that talked about eating fruit alone, or at least first in a meal. I just don't eat a lot of fruit at all, it hasn't agreed with me for a long time. But berries I can do, thank goodness - it's my go to dessert for now! I also was executor for my mom's estate, and it was a tough one -- Star is right,the gov't and utilities, credit cards, housing, they all make it tough. Re: bomb shelter, no thanks. If the world is going up in flames, I think I'll just go with it.... but being able to cope with a power outage, yep that I'm interested in, so I keep running scenarios in my head, it's some weird game that I play!!

    SK - I hope that you are doing OK, you sure have a lot to deal with. I like Lav's idea of finding someone to do the heavy lifting!

    OK, off to work, I have a client today this afternoon, so I'm crossing fingers that my energy will hold out. I'm feeling better, but still have bad coughing spasms, so crossing fingers. Water, ginger tea, water, ginger tea, water, ginger tea....

    Wishing all well for an AF Saturday!

    Re: Sweet September

    BREAKING NEWS........

    Lav has a cold
    Ha ha!!!!!!!
    I never pick up germs from other people, I survived nearly 30 years in nursing, Lol
    My daughter _ son-in-law both had colds when they were here Sunday so I guess at least I know the source of the germs.

    Cyn, being married to a cop means hearing (over & over) about what to do in emergency situations, believe me. Plus, we had to go thru all that training every year at the hospital as well. Fire drills, disaster drills, I still hear it all in my sleep
    It is useful information though & everyone should hear it & keep it in mind - just in case!
    I hope you are feeling better, I know it will be a few days for me.

    Hi Pauly, I hate losing posts.
    No matter where you are, wherever you go you should always spot the exits right away - you never know. Keep your head down & run like hell

    Well, I actually went on an Amish-Uber run with YB after dinner. We went to the Amish produce auction at the edge of town & picked up 70 pots of mums & delivered them to our friend's farm near by. He sells them along with the fruits & veggies he grows on his farm. The networking these Amish farmers do it truly amazing. YB went to another farm today & picked up 70 eggs & dropped them off at our friend's farm. The people who shop in his market have no idea that the eggs came from the neighboring county, ha ha but they're all Amish goods. So much excitement for a Thursday evening, ha ha!

    Hello to Star & SK.
    Have a nice night everyone!

    Re: Sweet September

    Good morning...

    Lav, sorry you have a cold, hopefully it will be mild and you'll feel better soon. The weather is beautiful here, low 70s and sunny. We are now in a minor drought, no rain in the forecast for now. Sounds fun delivering eggs, etc., interesting.

    Cyn, I never thought about getting out, but running and fighting as described sounds like a good idea. Hope you made it through your appointment..

    Pauly, I hate when I lose a post. Hope your day went well.

    Hello to Skendall.

    It's Friday, have a good AF one.

    Morning friends,tired this morning zzzz,that's the bad part of traveling is it takes awhile to get back into the swing of things,Star,are you feeling ok? You seem a little"meh" maybe I'm just a little"meh" and projecting it onto you haha,I just hope you feel happy Cyn,that is cool you learned all of that,my post yesterday about survival was in reference to the bomb shelter Lav joked about, I don't think I'd want to survive cuz I watch the Walking Dead and they have so much survival instinct to find food,fight,etc I just don't think I'd have it in me if something super major happened,Lav,hope you feel better,weather has gone cooler here I think I'm gonna put shorts and stuff away and pull out the pants,long sleeve stuff,wishing us all a happy AF Friday

    Re: Sweet September

    Greetings friends!

    Woke up to a crisp 46 degrees this morning, nice!
    The house is still closed up with the AC on due to our allergies but at least I can get out in the sun with the chickens for a while.
    This cold thing is a pretty good one, including headache & all. ugh. Treated myself to a real granny nap this afternoon - haven't done that in years!

    Star, we have a dry spell going on here too after such a damp summer. The grass stayed green all thru the summer & didn't do it's usual turning brown & crunchy in August. We only had the lightest showers related to the hurricanes so I guess we should start praying for some rain.
    YB was back out at 6 am to do more Amish pickups & deliveries. I did not go along, haha. The HVAC guy (who happens to live next door) came to service the heating system, so I needed to be here anyway.

    Pauly, I refuse to watch the Walking Dead but I also would not want to survive a nuclear strike. Why would I?
    Now keeping myself alert when out in public places is another story! I think we can do a lot to survive in those instances.

    Cyn, I hope you are OK & did well with your doc appt. today.
    Hello to SK!

    Looks like we are watching the Insanity Twins this weekend. How wonderful is that?
    Have a nice night everyone!

    Re: Sweet September

    Good morning...

    Pauly, I have had a rough week emotionally, feeling meh for sure. I have had thoughts ongoing that I am not enough, if you know what I mean. I think in times of transition, which I consider myself to being going through after I quit my job, I am working on who I am. My job was a big part of me, took up most of my time, it is a journey to figure out what to do next. I know I have lots of options and am lucky in that I can do what I want, but what do I want? Also, I feel guilty not working, this was not part of the plan, my plan for my life. For the last 25 years I have had a specific plan and worked towards it, although things did not always go as planned. Now I find myself wanting to change career paths, and that is confusing. It is OK though, I just get lonely. I have friends at exercise, my old friend at work contacted me again and we are going out next week to a movie, my family and husband, but I am not used to having so much time to myself. Hope you have a good day today, I know it is hard to get back to work after a vacation.

    Lav, hope that cold is going away. The weather here is even more beautiful, crisp and sunny again today. Good that YB is busy, keeps him out of trouble.

    Cyn, how is the weather in NE? Plans for the weekend?

    Hello to Skendall.

    Have a good one.
