You are welcome. You have a special place in my heart and I worry about you and care about you. I want to make you feel better. What do you think about a pet? I absolutely LOVE mine. They are my babies.

Glad to hear you had a good day. Did you buy any Disney ornaments? It's great the guy remembered you even after not seeing you for a while.

Friday afternoon I got my hair cut too. I probably lost 25 lbs getting so much hair cut off. I went from just past shoulder length hair that was all one length all around to hair that is a maximum of 3 inches long. The hairdresser asked if I was sure I wasn't going to cry. I told her I was sure. Even though I'm very thankful for having all this hair I had to have it cut short right now because I'm staying too hot. Thinking of your grandson made me think to tell you this for some reason. Next time if I get it all cut off and I want to cry I can ask you to come hold my hand.

You know I always thought that if I was alone I would get a toy poodle or a Maltese. But realistically, I can't afford any pets. Even if I could, I couldn't take care of it properly. I can't go out in the heat and humidity to take it for a walk. Since I use a cane, I really couldn't handle a leash either. So I will have to remain with just my beanie pets for comfort.

I did get one Disney ornament. It's Mickey with kisses from Minnie. It just reminded me of Ron and I. We always said we were Mickey and Minnie. Always and Forever.

I did my grocery shopping this morning and then I came home and watched tv all day. It keeps my mind off of things. I watch movies and some Britcoms and CSI Miami. Lots of different things to keep me occupied. Tomorrow I have to bring a copy of Ron's will to the bank and then I will cook up some corn on the cob that I got today. Think I will call my cousin and see if she will be home so I can get a swim in.

I'm glad that you got your hair cut shorter. You will love it. Mine is very short. I love it that way. So easy to take care of and COOOOOOL. I can't stand anything hanging on my neck. I am getting my hair cut and colored August 1st. Then I counted back to when we are going to DW and it worked out to be every 6 weeks. So when I go I will tell her to make those appointments until the end of the year.

Karen suggested that she would like to make Sunday, family dinner day. They usually do their shopping on Sunday afternoon and I could come along and then have dinner at their home. Doesn't that sound wonderful? I could spend time with Jesse too. He loves Matchbook cars. Today at the grocery store I found a package of ten that I will give him one at a time. I also bought a single one, because I liked it. LOL That brings me back to when Chuck was small. I used to buy them and then hide them to give him for being a good boy or as a special treat. History repeats.

Anglerose, I had no idea your husband had passed away. I just saw your name as the last to post to this thread and so I looked. I am so very, very sorry. I feel terrible to not checking in. I just thought there wasn't an update and never opened it. Please forgive me.

I am very sorry about Ron's death. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. I watched my mom lose my dad and my MIL lose my FIl and it is very hard. I hope God will comfort you in your darkest moments. Many hugs.

Of course I forgive you. How sweet of you to come back and for the prayers. It is very hard to deal with. I'm not sure how well I'm dealing with it. Some days are good and others are very bad. I try to focus on going to DW with the kids this December. My sweetheart won't be there to enjoy it with me. But I know his spirit will be there. Everyday is just something to get through. I know it will take a lot of time before I can look back at the wonderful memories without crying.

It sounds like you have had a pretty good day today. How do you feel about cats? You don't have to walk them. You just have to empty the litter box. Maybe you could sweet talk your kids into helping you buy one of the automatic litter boxes. And your son could refill it when he comes over. I'm telling you my pets were a lifesaver for me when I was at my lowest point.

I bet the ornament is beautiful! You will have to post pictures of it once you get it on your tree this year for all of us to see. Did you and Ron ever go to DisneyLand?

My head feels so light. Today was the first time I have washed my hair since the cut and I just used a tiny drop of shampoo. We had an open house at one of our facilities for work and it was one of the men I work with who noticed the hair cut. That stuck me as funny. He noticed it as soon as he saw me. What color will you be getting you hair done?

Family dinner day on Sunday is a wonderful idea. Karen sounds so wonderful! That pack of cars is also a wonderful idea. You are a great grandmother. Don't put them up somewhere and forget about them. I've bought things for my nephews to give them when they are over here and forget about them. I find them months later so the boys finally get them.

Speaking of hair earlier - when you go to WDW will you and your grandson be getting your hair cut at the barbershop on Main Street? Sorry if I have already asked you this. I think it will be so much fun to do. We are taking the nephews to do this. I'm already excited about it.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Sunday Family Dinner Day sounds good! You have a coupla gems there in your son and daughter-in-law.

It sounds like you're getting a good day in once in a while.

Hang in there.

I do love cats. Unfortunately I am EXTREMELY allergic to them. One time I was at my hairdressers and her cat had kittens. I just had to look and pet them. OMG my eyes were so swollen that the eyeball was over the bottom eyelid. I could hardly see to drive home. Oh that was an adventure, I can tell you. So, I have to remain petless.

I have been getting my hair the same basic color for at least 30 years now. It's the lightest blond. Clarol Nice N Easy Ultra Light Natural Blond. Funny thing, Karen thought this was my natural color! Well, it was about 50 years ago. LOL My hair was strawberry blond until my late teens. Then it got so dark that it depressed me. Finally after I had been married a couple of years, I couldn't stand it anymore and started coloring it. Been doing it ever since.

I asked Karen if she was planning that, but it's hard to tell if he will need another haircut after Thanksgiving. That's when he will get his haircut for the Christmas pictures. I will get my hair cut a week before we go so it will look nice there. So the barbershop will have to do without me. Hopefully Jesse will need it by the time we get there.

Ron and I only went to DW never Disneyland, but Chuck and Karen did on their honeymoon.

You could get a hairless cat. Hey, I've got to keep trying to find you some way to keep from being lonely.

At the barbershop you could just get some pixie-dust with your grandson. I think that is all I'm going to do with my nephews.

Today I had to go to the Social Security office to show them my marriage certificate so that I can get survivor benefits. Karen had us on a conference call, this morning, so she could help me. Now the man was very nice and asked me some questions. Pretty routine stuff. But then he asked me if I had worked in a foreign country. I haven't even visited a foreign country. Then he asked if I worked for the railroad. I'm sorry but I had to laugh. All I could picture was me and John Henry driving in those spikes with a 16 lb. sledge. I'm afraid the man didn't see the humor in it. We have to ask these questions Mrs. Bown. Sorry about that. So I did get a laugh today. I had a relatively short wait in the ss office. Only about an hour and a half. My number was 60 and when I sat down they started to call 34. ACKKKKKKKK Just kill me now. But a lot of people must have left. I was so thrilled when my number was finally called and I was done in a few minutes. Chuck had driven me there and left me his phone. He showed me how to use it. When I was done, I pressed the right thingy and got the numbers up and pressed the right ones for his office and nothing happened. I asked some young men if they knew what I was doing wrong. LOL DUHHHHHHHH I forgot to press call! Chuck picked me up and took me home. I was glad to get home and relax for the rest of the afternoon.

Chuck and Karen are taking me to see the new Harry Potter movie this weekend. We are going to the late show. I will have to take a nap or two for that. It's at 10:30 pm and I probably won't get to bed before one or so. That will be different. I'm usually in bed by 11:30 at the latest. I'm up at 6 or 6:30am. I have a feeling that Sunday I'll be sleeping in a bit more. But it will be fun.

chell, you are so funny. I really can't afford any pets at all right now. But I enjoy your efforts.

That's an interesting quote TheAmazingSpidey. I hope I can live up to that.

You can't blame me for trying. As I was trying to type that my cat was nudging my hand. He is sending you some love.

Glad to hear you weren't stuck at the office all day. Around here it is about a half day ordeal. The guy on the phone should have had some sense of humor. At least you did!

Oh, Angelrose..... it's so great to see a little of your awesome personality coming out. Glad you had a giggle at the ss office. I can just picture you working on the railroad.

Keep moving forward... and another idea for a pet is a bird! We just lost our cockatiel after 17 years. She loved to have her neck scratched just like a dog! She sang the Andy Griffith theme and whistled the cat call. I wish we would have had more time to teach her to talk, but we got her when the kids were very young and we were very busy.

Anyhow.... something to consider maybe!
Take care!

Are you okay? I see that you haven't posted in a few days and I just want to make sure you are okay. Guess by now you see that I like to worry.
