Oh my gosh, Trudi that is so great. Seriously, Dawn would have loved that. Tink and bling all in one!!
I think Sally would like it, and certainly appreciate the gesture. But then I don't know her very well so maybe others can offer their advice on whether to send it or not.

As a matter of fact, I would encourage everyone to be taking Vit. D3 since it has been proven to prevent and kill the H1N1 virus.

That's just my take on it, and I know others will disagree.
I was all set in my decision not to get it, but now........who knows. If I do, and they have a bad reaction or end up sick from the shot, then how will I feel. But if I don't, and God forbid they get the flu........I can't even think about it. So I'm torn. And of course without a crystal ball, there is no easy answer.

I've heard of and bought the Oscillo before, but what is Vit. D3? Can that be found in Target or Walmart?

That is so cute and perfect for Dawn. She had told us that she was going to do her entire tree in Disney this year. My gift to her is two Alice in Wonderland Ornaments - I thought since she and Miss Sally were characters from Alice for the Oct. mini meet trick or treat party that she might like them. I have already had them sent to Melody so I'll talk to Melody about sending them to Miss Sally.

Hi ladies--here is an update on memorial services for Dawn:

Cheryl -
I just found out there will be a Memorial Service here in El Paso on Wednesday 12/2/09 @ 10:30 am. I will get more details to you to pass along to the other girls. My thoughts are with you, and again - our Dawn would not want people to be sad, but to celebrate her life and some of our most fond memories were in Las Vegas so I think you all should still go for her.

Paula


I'll give you more details as soon as I have them.

Ugh. I am back and forth on this too!! I hate it. At first, I said no. Then after all this happened with Dawn, I told Ruben maybe we should think it over.

He went to the head of the infectious disease dept at his hospital and asked her what she personally would do. She said she was in the position of having to publicly promote it, but that she would not be getting one for herself nor for her 9 year old child.

I was like great! Now I'm more confused than ever before. I still don't know what to do.....
Beth: I will say on the pumpkin pie issue--Claim Jumper frozen pumpkin pie. On sale at our Ralphs for $3.99. Unbelievable truly--I would never make one from scratch after having this.

On the H1N1 shot issue--i did get my seasonal flu shot last week but my doctor also does not recommend the H1N1 shot. Because it is too "new" and was rushed. Callie is right that Dawn had pre-existing conditions that made her more susceptible. Not that the shot may not have protected. her. But it's a hard thing to crystal ball.

Thanks for that update Cheryl.
I think it's true what she wrote about Dawn not wanting people to be sad. That just wasn't her. She always, always found the positive in any situation.

Maybe when you and Linda and everyone is here together in Vegas, we can put on our red lipstick and raise a toast to Dawn. I'm game!! Someone will have to finish my drink after though.

Oooooh, I do love Claim Jumper. We go there for Christmas Eve dinner. Never thought to try their frozen pies. Thanks for that tip!

And thanks for sharing what your doc said was her take on the shot. I'm sending Ruben after work to pick up some Airborne, some vitamins, some Oscillo, and some orange juice. No one is sick now, but all of that stuff can only help us all boost our immune systems.
Hmmmmm, to bad he can't pick up a crystal ball while he's at it.

I'm sorry I haven't been on our new thread before this. We've been living in a mess for a few days, and still living in it, and then Dawn passed away, and I'm just....well....a mess.

I love both the button and armband idea to wear in Dawn's memory.

Beth - Pumkin pie is one of the easiest to make and a great first pie to tackle. Go for it!

Cheryl - LOVE those lyrics! They are beautiful.....but they made me weepy and tear up again.

Callie - Your grandma, mom, and family are in my prayers. Older folks can get stubborn (more stubborn and controlling than when they were younger) and messed up with their thinking, and I think it stems from being depressed. My dad is 82 years old, and he can be SO stubborn sometimes, and I know he gets depressed because he really can't do anything anymore and he requires quite a bit of care from my mom. But heck, we would never give up food.....or having a glass of wine in the evening! That's all he has to look forward to everyday - lol.

So I've had a terrible, horrible weekend, and with everything else going on here, Dawn's passing really brought me down to a point I've never felt before. Our gas water heater broke and flooded our basement Friday night and most of Saturday (it's a walk-out daylight basement where our family room is, so we spend a lot of time together there). Our carpet down there is completely ruined and needs to be replace. Our whole house smells like a really strong mixture of dirty wet dog and mildew. We haven't had any hot water for three days (and the cold water up here this time of year is COLD!). I couldn't take it anymore and had to take a bath today, so I had to heat pots of water on our stove to take a bath with. We are getting our water heater replaced tomorrow (no gas plumbers available to do it today) and that is going to cost $1600. I don't know how we're going to pay for that, let alone new carpet. Before this, I was wondering how we were going to buy our boys Christmas presents.....and now I'm just.....completely broken in so many ways. I'm just so sad and drained and emotional spent. I don't know what we're going to do.

Crud, I'm crying again just writing about it all. Oh man.....it's just really tough right now.

Most pharmacies will carry lower ICU dosages, but what you want is the high ICU (2,000) or more. You can find that at a Whole Foods/Wild Oats/local health food store. I found 5,000 ICU that is a peppermint flavored chewable. My kids think it's candy. Vit. D3 is fat soluble, not water, so you do want to watch your dosages, but it is almost impossible to cause any harm by taking too much.

To find more info you can look at http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/newsl...itamin-d.shtml

Oh Capri,

What a sucky, horrible, crappy thing to happen to you right now. I wish I lived closer so you could just come over here and take a long hot soak in my bathtub. Does your homeowner's insurance cover any of this??

Callie, our insurance doesn't cover a new hot water tank, and our deductible is $1000, so putting in a claim for just carpet wouldn't even be worth it. Also, our agent told us our monthly premium would go up 35% if we put in a claim, so it really just isn't worth it to put in such a small claim.

Yes, and your agent might have told you too that water damage claims get 'special attention' and can make it hard to re-insure the house down the road. I'm sure Tracey knows all about this from her realtor work. So if you can best not to make the claim.

ETA: I am so sorry you are going through this right now--you'd be welcome to use my bathtub too!

Capri - I'm so sorry that happened. I hate it when household crap happens. We just had to get a leak in the roof fixed - yikes! It's raining cats and dogs here for already two weeks, so it is very important, so I can somewhat feel your pain C'mon up here for a visit - we have a hot tub (and it's nice and hot - feels great even in the rain )

Oh Capri. Honey, I'm so sorry you've been dealing with all this. Do you have family that can maybe help out with the cost of the water heater, or maybe with presents for the boys?

Times like this I wish I had money. I'd give you the $1600 if I had it. AND I'd take you shopping for Christmas gifts for your family and something pretty for you.
