    Re: Sweet September

    Good evening friends,

    Gosh we had such a nice day here I almost feel guilty. It was cool & sunny, just the way I like it of course.
    I am seriously hoping my friend on the west coast of FL has changed her mind about staying during the storm. Irma has changed track & it now looks like the east & west coasts are going to be hit hard, geez.

    Star, don't you think it's unusual to be breaking out in a rash a week or more after the fact? Have you considered possibly a mosquito or tick bite? The exhaustion you're feeling has me concerned. Have you had an fever or headache? Nurse Lav always has a lot of questions. Maybe you need some blood work done to check inflammation markers? I want you to feel better asap
    It seems like your son has had more than his fair share of bad luck, sorry to hear about that stuff. We just want our kids to be happy & healthy. I hope things start looking up for him real soon.

    Cyn, I don't know what bothers me more during a power failure - the lack of flushing toilets or the lack of showers, haha! All I know is I feel gross after a few days, yuck.
    I can't imagine having to live in a shelter for an unknown amount of time, surrounded by strangers, etc. I am praying, hoping & wishing for the best for everyone in the path of Irma.
    I don't think we are going to get a whole lot of bad weather but I will be prepared anyway.

    Pauly, sounds like the BF has some real issues that need to be addressed. Do you think he's depressed? Worried about the new baby coming, that sort of thing? I hope things improve for them before it's too late.
    So why did Brady call in sick? He doesn't like the job? What else do you think he would like to do?
    Glad you had a good BD

    I hope yo are all aware of the huge data breach at Equifax.
    be sure you go to Cybersecurity Incident & Important Consumer Information | Equifax to check to see if you're involved in the data breach. We checked our SS#'s this morning & found that mine was safe but YB is not. They are offering help if you were impacted.

    Have a good night everyone!

    Re: Sweet September

    Late check-in. Did I hear of a birthday girl? HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAULY.

    I just got back from being with Vivian at the carnival. It as sponsored by the R.C. church and I hope it goes to a good cause. A bit pricey but no carnies, just clean cut operators. I went on 3 rides. One was the Chinese dragon and it was rather intense and when we got off my daughter pointed to a sign that said people with back or neck issues should not be on this ride, oops. I felt so privileged to be with Vivian, she is so bubbly and excited and doesn"t need anybody to have a good time. I left early while they were having nachos and deep fried snickers bars. Vivian was saying she wasn't going on any more rides or she would throw up. Both my internet and cell providers have been out. I took my phone back today and it was a technical issue with the phone because I hadn't turned the phone completely off in a while. The frozen screen on my computer came back to life. It was a very good day!

    Pauly, I hope you had a good birthday and that it involved good food - not at the Cracker Barrel.

    Re: Sweet September

    Good morning...

    Lav, thanks for your concern re: my health. I am definitely getting better, when I am hit with an allergic reaction like this, it takes time for me to get back to normal. If I was getting sicker I would definitely go to a doctor, but each day I am improving. Today I am having my daughter and family spend the night, I feel strong enough for all the action again. I am making a big pot of chili and mushroom soup, vegan of course. I was able to enjoy two exercise classes yesterday, and accomplish all my goals. Yes, I napped again, but that is ok for now. What a pain in the neck about the Equifax, I think they should have to notify us if they messed up, geez. The weather here is just gorgeous too, I am enjoying it with all the windows open and warmth and sunshine.

    Pauly, sorry you caught the cold, it is hard when the little ones cough right in your face. Hopefully Kell's BF will get it together soon, interesting that he talks to you about his partying.

    Cyn, I think if I lived in a place that regularly lost power I would invest in a generator, it sounds super difficult to get anything done with no electricity. You are a warrior. Are you feeling any better? I love cooler weather and fall, it always energizes me. We love by some apple orchards and I am looking forward to getting fresh produce and cider.

    Skendall, sounds like you had some fun, take care.

    Det, hope you are doing well.

    Have a great AF Saturday.

    Re: Sweet September

    Morning friends,Star her bf had texted me cuz he knows I'm an early bird and would be up at 4:30 while he was still up from the night before,god I do NOT miss those days! I think like Lav said he's got issues,my amateur psychology thinks its fear over how the last pregnancy ended up last year and maybe he's afraid of something going wrong,or he's afraid of his health problems so figure why not,or he's just being an ass,who knows.SK,glad you had fun,you need some fun right now, thank God for grandkids,everyone else can be nuts but they keep us centered I've been on that dragon ride supposed to be for kids but still the ups and downs and twists hit pretty hard,hope your back isn't sore,Cyn,what do you have planned for the day? I'm working and very unexcited about it,,Saturday is just not my favorite day up there,oh well,wishes for a soothing sober Saturday
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    Re: Sweet September

    Morning all -

    Star, so glad that you are feeling better -- but keep all of Lav's warnings in mind -- and do have your blood tests updated at some point - tick-burned diseases, etc can be very tricky and come back to haunt you. Have fun with the family today! I meant to say how sorry I am for your son's current issues; it's like the kid just can't get a break.

    Lav, I felt the same guilt yesterday, such glorious weather. I haven't heard from our friends in Cuba, which it sounds like had a direct hit last night, oh dear. I am crossing fingers that they are OK. When will our administration wake up to the reality of climate change? Cuba hasn't seen a hurricane since 1925... they may not even have known how to prepare - their meteorologists told them it would miss the island...

    Pauly, so sorry you are being dragged into the bf's troubles, but maybe it is a call for help in some way? He seems to trust you enough to be honest about what's going on. I hope today is OK at work and that it goes by quickly! Feel better soon - sorry about the cold, darn.

    SK - what a sweet time you had at the fair! Thanks for describing it all - you are braver than I am, I don't do rides' ha.

    Det - hope you have a good day --

    Sorry to go on and on in yesterday's post about the storm so long ago... I meant to finish the story with how much gratitude I have everyday for running hot water and heat and a roof over our heads. I think Disaster Planning was on my mind because I'm giving a big presentation today at a Library. It's about decluttering and downsizing, but since September is 'disaster preparedness month', I will be talking about that too. Does anyone else follow the Wellness Mama site? That woman is amazing, and has great info. She has the best Go Bag suggestions I've seen, and also great links to other sites - I'm going to copy the FEMA contact list document and hand them out today - we don't always think about how we will contact family and friends if something happens, so that is a great resource. With the terrible fires in the west, the hurricanes coming in, the earthquakes caused by drilling, etc it seems like every part of the country is at risk for some potential evacuation. Better to be ready!

    Well, off to prepare for this talk. wishing all well, and a good grateful AF Saturday.

    Re: Sweet September

    Good evening friends,

    I can't believe it was almost completely dark by 7:30 tonight. of course that means I have to get the chickens tucked in earlier & earlier, ha ha!
    Nice & cool here again today, so grateful for that
    We went to my favorite plant farm today & came home with half a dozen new plants to replace the overgrown, crappy looking shrubs we yanked out earlier this summer. That should make a definite improvement out front next year.

    Star, so glad you are feeling perkier today! Have fun with the family this weekend but don't wear yourself out!

    SK, you are a brave one to get on the rides. I haven't been on any since my kids were young. The last one I was on made me seriously sick
    Spending time with the grandkids is the best feeling in the world. Your granddaughter sounds like mine, happy & bubbly!!!
    I have the same issues with my phone because I never turn it off either. I am trying to remember to do that every couple of days now since we no longer have a land line.

    Pauly, is there any way you could possibly steer the BF into AA? He probably would benefit from some sort of group support like that. He probably is scared of the unknown, most of us are, it's the human condition.
    I hope your day at work wasn't too harsh!

    Cyn, I always feel better when I have thoughtfully prepared for an event ~ even a hurricane!!
    I think our backgrounds in scouting & emergency response have served us well, ha ha! If you could see the firewood YB has piled up outside you would think we were prepared for Armageddon. The natural & man-made disasters seem to be coming more frequently, what can we do? I dream of a future with a progressive thinking administration in Washington that will help keep us all from going to hell in a hand basket.
    I hope your talk went well today!

    Have a nice night everyone!

    Re: Sweet September

    Oh for goodness sake - here is yesterday's post! Obviously something (someone interrupted me, and I never pressed 'send'. All OK here, but hoping to hear from friends in Cuba and family in FL. This seems like a horror film that Hollywood invented... I'm afraid that we are now living in a future that we dared not even imagine a few years ago - I am heartsick for all the human suffering, that will go on and on now for years. Off to make donations ---
    May we be well ---

    Re: Sweet September

    Morning friends,oops double post Cyn haha Star hope you're continuing to improve, bet you had a fun overnight with family Lav, oh no if I suggested AA he'd laugh in my face,,he's still young and no where near wanting to quit drinking, same with Michelle,, she actually came here yesterday cuz she's mad her bf wants her to quit drinking and smoking weed everyday! I try and talk to her but its a brick wall and I know there's no getting through cuz I was the same way for years,the poor kids used to write me letters begging me to quit drinking, I never even attempted back then,thought it was my business not theirs and I was just having fun, my goodness I can't believe what an asshole I was! At least I'm here now trying to stay sober,I just feel sad I didn't at least try sooner,,hoping everyone has a Happy AF Sunday
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    Re: Sweet September

    Good morning...

    Whew, what a whirlwind visit. It all worked out, the chili and garlic bread sticks were a hit, we were busy till about noon today. I was able to spend time with my youngest grandson this time, he is almost four months old and is so sweet, but alot of work. Eat, change, play, sleep, and on and on. We were up at 3 am, 6 am, it is fun but glad I had mine when I was young. Now we are going to watch football and relax.

    Lav, this cool weather is such a blessing, I am enjoying it too. Thanks for the reminder to plant, I want to do that next weekend.

    Cyn, great that you get to give a talk and help people with all kinds of situations. I believe in climate change and feel concerned re all the stuff going on all over the US too.

    Pauly, true that the grandkids keep you centered. I just kept talking to my kids about drinking and they both seem to be cautious about their intake, not wanting to feel like crap the next day or get arrested. Hope Kell's BF at least cuts down, he is aware that he is hurting himself so that is a start. I feel badly about my drinking too, but can't change the past, only the now.

    Hello to Skendall and Det, have a great AF Sunday to everyone.
