    What's up with Dawn--saw she was headed to doctor.

    Sorry you are bored Janet! Wanna come help me play with my kitty?? :goodvibes He's so funny---just starting to play some now---he will pounce on his play mouse and start biting it! I guess he's used to the real thing. I still have his house in the garage -, but I'm leaving the door open some so he can stretch his legs. Daran wants to try him out in the barn this weekend---BA and I are sceered. We've never had an outdoor kitty. But I know isabella wouldn't be nice to him. He just purrs and purrs and kneads on your legs!:goodvibes

    Thanks. I missed the fockers too! :goodvibes

    Alpha has been in children's hospital all week. He had stomach cramps starting two weeks ago and they couldn't find what was wrong.

    He was hospitalized last friday overnight for dehydration but was released on Saturday.

    saturday night the pains came back. And all day Sunday.

    Monday I took him to the dr again because he hadn't eaten since Friday night. He told me to take him to Children's Hospital in Bham. They did a ct scan and said everything seemed ok except his stomach which was swollen.

    Then he started passing blood.

    they ordered an upper GI and a colonoscopy. everything came back normal which was good. Basically they eliminated everything else so went back to their original assumption that it was a stomach bug that just lasted two weeks.

    Funny thing is no one else in the house has been sick.

    because of that we cancelled our trip to Orlando. We lost $100 but it wasn't worth the risk of him getting sick again (or if it was a stomach bug, someone else getting sick) away from home.

    This is the kids fall break so luckily he didn't miss too much school work.

    My boss has been so understanding throughout all this which I have been really grateful for.

    In addition to all that - I have also been having family drama with my siblings and my mom. It involves land, deeds, money, and my dad's will never been probated. I always thought we were close but apparently one brother has been harboring ill feelings for the past 9 years.

    Speaking of 9 years... Chi had her 9th birthday and it was also the 9th anniversary of my dad's passing.

    Between all that, karate, football, danceline, fall festival, piano lessons, baby showers, babysitting for friends, birthday parties, housework, regular school work, gifted school work, getting ready for halloween, Chi's birthday, Alpha and Delta's upcoming birthdays, and working overtime... I have had very little time for my friends both IRL and 'imaginary'.

    I can't wait for Monday when the kids go back to school and everything returns to 'normal'.

    Holy cow, Deb - what a lot going on! :faint:

    I'm so sorry about the sickness and the family drama and the trip cancellation. :hug: I hope things turn around - glad your boss was understanding.

    Deb--you better start saving for insurance now! We had 4 of us on as teens too---3 were boys and my oldest brother kept thinking he could outrun the state troopers....he was wrong.:rolleyes:

    And get this....the rate was with ab driving my minivan--they said it would have been way worse in another vehicle. She was complaining about driving the MPV...but now she realizes it's not so bad cause---IT RUNS and IT"S FREE! Her friend's cars keep dying....

    Wow Deb---you have had a rough couple weeks. That must have been scary at the hospital. I know what you mean about getting back on routine--everything seems so much more settled. Keep us updated.

    That's great!

    THat's good too!

    Ugh:hug:


    Sounds like you need it!:hug:

    Smart girl:thumbsup2

    ==================================

    So I am so bored I am watching The Hannah Montana Movie. Who told Billy Ray Cyrus he can act?:confused3:sick:

    I have to leave to pick up Jimmy at about 3:30, get dinner together (I'm thinking takeout:rolleyes:), then get him into his cub scout uniform. Cub SCouts run from 7:00 to 8:30. When I am I going to have time to watch the Phillies kick some Dodger butt:woohoo:

    Kinda think she should have went to the doctor---I hope it works for her. BA is really liking the physical therapist she is going to for neck pain. She falls asleep during the treatments--she says everyone should go there to relax! :rolleyes:

    Oh Deb, you've been through the wringer! :hug::hug::hug: I'm so sorry.

    My condo doesn't allow using paper bags because they fall apart in the dumpsters and them stuff falls all over when the truck tips the dumpster. :rolleyes:
    We do in Tampa, but that's an hour from me. I use a Rack Sack under the kitchen sink:

    [​IMG]

    and the grocery store bags work perfectly in it.

    GREAT news! :banana:

    That's just awful. :sad1:

    Oooh, thanks for the tip - I didn't know about that! :thumbsup2 I used to stay at the Doubletree Suites all the time, back when WDW's prices were much higher than off-site; we really like it there! TONS of space, two full rooms and comfy beds. That beats even a DVC studio by a landslide. (Are you listening Mouse?!)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I HAVE AC!!!

    Or so I hear. My friend's DH went by my house to check it while Gramma's home. He looked at it, turned the switch to "AC"... and the freaking thing turned right on. Dudes, I'd done the same exact thing about a bazillion times over the past few days and nothing happened! :mad: So I'm sure it still needs to be replaced, but at least it's running again. Just in time for the cold front tomorrow. :rolleyes:

    Have fun with the Cub Scouts :rotfl:. We had fun at Toy Story 1 & 2, I hope you both enjoy it.

    I know what you mean about the "place no one needs to enter" I have a room like that too :rotfl:.

    I wish we could have a cat, we can only have one pet at a time where we are. He sounds like a sweetie!

    So sorry ot here about the sickness, I hope it is nothing serious. I am glad your boss is understanding. So sorry to hear about the family drama, I hope it all works out.

    I don't know if I could ever get that bored :lmao:. I think takeout is a great idea! I am going to ignore the Phillies comment, Bill is still wounded from the Dodger loss last night.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Well Josh and Abbey haven't done a darn thing to prepare for our trip, not told my xMIL (who the live with) that they are going, they haven't told Christian's school that he will be gone, and haven't gotten the suitcases from her mother.

    Heck we leave in 18 days why should I be worried according to him :eek:, they have plenty of time. I want to shake him and say "I AM AN OBSESSIVE DISNEY PLANNER GET YOUR BUTT IN GEAR, YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE MY HEAD EXPLODE".

    Now my xH is having some type of spell where his heart races and the left side of his body goes numb. Two hospitals are saying it is anxiety attacks, he got a stress test yesterday. I don't know the results from that. Josh is extremely upset about this and they want him to go to a heart clinic in another town. We told Josh if he wanted to postpone his part of the trip we would understand. He says he still wants to go, that might change before we leave I don't know.

    Bill is thinking about joining an advocacy group for people with disabilities. They are helping us with an issue where we live. They need a volunteer regional director for our area and Bill is interested. He would be excellent for it!

    Nothing much else is going on, next weekend we go to St. Louis to watch the Colts play the Rams, Bill is so happy about this. He has informed me that I need to leave the blackberry in the van. I informed him that ain't gonna happen :lmao:. Jodi and I often text each other during the games and I have fun doing that with her.

    I hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Deb- :hug: So, is he feeling better now, then? It sounds like they just left with the stomach flu and no more explanation. how frustrating. :guilty:

    TE- I have an appt at 4:30. I'm nervous. I've never been to a chiropractor. :eek:

    V- I'm glad you got air back. I'm so thankful to have an AC man as my man. I hate to sweat. :lmao:


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    K brought home a granny car as my rental car last night. :headache: I swear it was a boat. It was a Mercury something or other but looked like a Town car. I dropped the kids off this am and went to get a van. Not my first choice, but at least it doesn't hurt my back to get in and our of it. :sad2:

    I went to this new little market that opened. It's got a ton of fresh meats and veggies, vitamins (to replce the bottle of vitamin D the puppy ATE yesterday), and specialty foods. They have AMAZING prices too. If I could do this, :yay:, I would! :rotfl:

    So, I'm headed to my appt in a little bit. Mom's coming over to watch the kids. I'm fighting the urge to clean even though her house is a wreck. Probably something about wanting to be better than our parents. :rotfl2:

    TTYL, girls...

    WHAT?!

    TE! I was baking two chickens and a roast on Cafe World, when one chicken (which take 24 hours), was ready. I clicked on it and it went to be served. Then I help a few neighbors, came back and it was french onion soup! My other chicken turned into french onion soup and my roast turned into strawberry whatever it's called!!

    What a rip! I paid way more money for the chickens and roast and waited patiently. They are worth more too. :mad: Stupid game!!! :mad:

    Wow, what is actually wrong with the people you look after, for some reason I thought you worked with the elderly!

    Probably :rotfl2:

    Probably :rotfl2:

    Sounds lovely :goodvibes

    :thumbsup2

    Errr I didn't end up going shopping, just didn't tell you all :rotfl2:

    Hey Deb, good to see you :goodvibes

    Oh no, hope he gets better quick :hug:

    Woooohooooo

    :rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2: and good luck to Bill!

    Oh Dawn :rotfl2:



    Well I won my golf match :thumbsup2 And had a nice afternoon with Dad. The girls are off to Wembley tomorrow with Guides to see a special Guides only pop concert. Alexandra Burke, JLS, The Saturdays and loads of others will be there, they're so excited. David and I are making the most of it and going to the cinema and for a meal :thumbsup2

    Hooray - but how frustrating that it worked for someone else. :hug:

    Well, even when we have houseguests they will go into the boys' room at bedtime and such, but there is absolutely NO reason ever to be in mine. So, it's kind of the catch-all. :rotfl:

    I'm sorry about your family's lack of planning - you know your Fockers will understand. :hug:

    Hope you held strong! That's weird about your Cafe! :confused:

    **************************************************
    Well, I haven't gotten much accomplished. I went to Target and the grocery store, which was good, and I've "escabeche'd" the veggies for the fish tomorrow. I have enlisted T's help on FB for enchilada prep - I need my brown mama's advice. :rotfl2:

    Anyway, I've not done much cleaning at all. Oops. Not that there's THAT much to do, but I don't want to leave it all until tomorrow. The boys are home from school, but went to play outside with the neighbor for now. So, I need to get my behind up and doing something real. ;)

    V--glad you got your A/C! I remember how annoying that could be in TX!

    Dawn---good luck at the chiropractor. I took Ab there last year for neck pain..but she didn't like it. I took her xray that he did to her doctor tho.

    Jo---I was about to come looking for you! Didn't you know that this was my day off??

    Tracy---which pet do you have?? I guess I'd have Max if I could only keep one (my std poodle)....course Bear, Isabella, Biggins, Rocky, Tumnus, Snickers, Tragos, Nestle, Noodles, Boots, Minnie Cow, Brown Cow, Baby cow, and 2 not-named cows would be pissed! :lmao:
