    Hi Liddlle Not sure if Michael has left yet either. If he has, wishing him safe travels. It's still Monday night here in California. Going to bed soon. G-night. Will come back in the morning. (yawn)

    Good Morning Liddle, NF and all that pop in,

    Liddle loved the picture, very nice and I may just have to 'borrow' it LOL

    Yes Liddle and NF Michael has headed off for his flight over the Antartica, I cannot wait to hear all about it and hope that he got some great aerial photos.

    Had an awesome day yesterday with 6 visits and no running by the office which I love. I will be there this morning for IDG then out to visit some more patients before heading home to my furboys.

    So enjoying having these plants in my loft although with the palm tree I feel like I am at a resort the only thing missing is the water LOL Hmmmmmmmm thinking now hahahahhha

    My older pup is getting into this habit of wanting to go outside at 2am, I am going to have to break him of that because I am not getting a good nights rest. They go out before we go to bed so I am sure he is not really needing the bathroom he just wants to check his surroundings out. Summer I will not have a problem if he wants to stay outside but not when it is so freaking cold.

    Very cold this morning I think my nasal hairs froze when I let the boys out LOL Not even going to get above freezing here and of course Mr Wind is arriving as well now that is just going to be brutal.

    Oh well such is life we have to take what we get now don't we?

    Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday no matter what you get up to, make it count ok?

    Much love to you all.

    Good day all,
    We finally got snow. Well, we got the cars covered, that's all.
    Lots of work at the office and 2 new clients to see. I will go in early and hope to get out a bit early. i still have to stop and buy dog food and rolls for dinner.

    Have a wonderful day. Dreaming I was with Michael, circling the ice and checking out penguins.

    Morning Liddle NF Sabby AKY

    Got out yesterday and got the shopping done, started later than I would have liked. Didn't do a lot else yesterday, was too cold so I pretty much stayed inside. Even colder today.

    Had a strange dream last night, dreamed I was back in middle school, was wondering why I was back there. Had a similar dream several times, not sure what it means. Happens when I wake up in the early morning and fall back to sleep.

    Headed back to work today after a three day weekend. That should make the week go by fairly quickly, which is good.

    I'm not a dream interpreter but maybe you wish you were young again without all these responsibilities!

    He knows the alternative to my dinners. I keep a list of favorite restaurants. Italian, Mexican, Steak, Family oriented, sophisticated, even a diner or two. Open mouth, open car door!

    Are we allowed to complain?

    My MIL died yesterday after a sudden onset, grade IV brain tumor. She was only 55. My own mom died in May. I also miscarried very early (5 weeks + 2 days) at the beginning of the month. We've also had three major appliances fail within the last 48 hours and are looking at a couple thousand in repairs...that we don't have.

    Today -- I have to buy and pack for my SIL's destination wedding in the Dominican Republic. She's going through with it even though her mother died yesterday. I worked last night.

    Given the way everything has been going lately, I'm pretty sure that my husband and I will die in a fiery plane crash. What else could happen? Keep your eyes peeled.

    .
    Of course! All of us have shared our tough times here.

    I'm so sorry about your life right now. You have more than your fair share. I'm 55 so that's a scary story about your MIL. (You sound kinda like me with the airplane crash and all).

    Hugs sent your way and a prayer sent up too.

    Gosh I am so sorry with all that you have gone through.

    Firstly I am so sorry for the loss of your Mum and MIL, but also your miscarriage. How my heart aches for you right now.

    Such a tough time that you have been through, go away and have a great time at the wedding. I am sure this will be a time for the family to relax and recoup.

    Keep your thoughts happy and positive as best you can ok? *hugs*

    Such a great deal of pain. Sometimes people forget that the loss with a miscarriage is the same as another type of death. Every person grieves in their own way. You have so many grief issues right now and it seems like less support than would be nice. Take it one day at a time. Be as cheerful as you can under the circumstances. I recall having to attend a NYeve party right after my DH died. I was not much fun or good company but my DS knew what he was doing by having me go. I sat with a wonderful young woman who shared her wedding photos. I was allowed to view marriage from another's eyes.

    I am not saying you are the same or that this wedding will be good or bad. It may be a way to support your family and be together to perhaps support each other.

    Appliances always pick the wrong time to kick.

    Personally I think a warm bath and a cold glass of white wine, if you can drink safely. If not, something that is relaxing be it meatloaf or Meatloaf, or other music.

    dirtyhippiegirl,

    Many gentle hugs.
    aky is right, you have a lot of grieving going on right now.
    Possibly anger too, as you work through all the events.
    You are not being targeted.
    Things happen in droves sometimes.
    I hope you have support from your dh, that he and possibly some other family members have your back.
    Go, do, with an open mind but do not ignore your needs (food, sleep, talk, cry, alone time, etc).

    And I'll repeat what aky posted: one day at a time.

    Keep us updated, if you will please.
