    Do I detect sarcasm . . . ?
    I wasn't being sarcastic. I was actually being genuine.

    Siri: glad to know your meetings are over. I don't like meetings-find it hard to sit still that long.

    Pretty short thread this afternoon. I have been so busy this last week. Car auction; taking a friend to ER; housework (bought a DR table and chairs and a TV so had to rearrange house);helping a couple move this weekend; job hunting. Hoping it all slows down pretty soon.

    Started off my day fighting with dd to get her to go to school. It is getting to be more and more of a struggle. In part, she doesn't "feel well." Been kinda tired, "stomach", coughing last noc. None of her sx add up to a definite dx. I am fixing to get her some vitamins and vitamin c today and start her on that. I think, in part, it is her age. She is 15 and all my kids went through a spell (in their teens) where they required more sleep or just rest.

    Haven't heard back on the two jobs I applied for last week but will be sending out more apps today.

    It is around 70 today. (praise God!!!) Supposed to stay "warm" (60ish) for several days they get colder. I have been keeping up on the disaster in Florida and all the bitter cold in other areas. Feel sorry for them. Kids may think it great to get out of school but, if it is that bitter, they won't be playing outside. And think of the poor parents who have bored kids. (LOL)

    Gotta run. Need to meet a friend. Stay safe. Donna

    Is she doing ok in school? No bullying? When I was 15 I was the same way, but I weighed 110 pounds, was a full C cup and all the boys thought I was up for grabs - literally.

    Good luck on the job front.

    70 huh? I think it's maybe 5 degrees out and I don't even want to think about wind chill. Most schools were closed today d/t the cold.

    Woke up today and I can breathe!!!! I took some Claritin and it worked. Thing is, I think it was the old Claritin with pseudoephedrine and I don't think they make that anymore. Locally, it is very very hard to find any allergy, flu, cold medicine with psuedoephedrine. And study after study has shown that the new brand of medicine is not nearly as effective as those meds with psuedoephedrine.

    Hey all. Back from work. I'm tired and would like a nap, but if I do give in, i'll have a hard time sleeping tonight. Oh well...................I'll just play here awhile and hope I don't end up facedown on the keyboard.

    tn, I know how you feel. I work 12's, 6:30a - 6:30p and get home around 7p. I have to force myself to stay awake when I'm nodding off driving home, nodding off in the shower, etc. It doesn't matter how much sleep I get the night before, it is inevitable that I will nod off somewhere.

    beth: no, i don't think she is getting bullied. i think it is just her age. one teacher called her a "social butterfly" and i know she gets along well with others and has a number of friends. i also know she won't take any cr-- off of anyone. my oldest dd was always getting compliments from teachers on being a "pacifist." she was bullied a lot and just laid down and took it. fortunately, she has gotten over that. youngest dd is exact opposit. someone gets rude with her or says something they shouldn't they either get a dirty look or a comment. plus, she can "blow off" that kind of stuff. she has a very high level of self-confidence. me, when i was in school, my reaction was somewhere between oldest dd and youngest dd-i got bullied a lot and i would just as soon hit someone as look at them. (lol) glad you are getting a handle on your allergies. i have fought them all my life. hope your day is going well. donna

    I wish I had self-confidence when I was a teenager. I did everything possible to blend in with the scenery.

    Hiya all. Been a bit busy, lately. Of course some of that is taking care of my sweet patients. The little lady I had been caring for passed away just before I arrived yesterday. I was the one to deal with the grief of the family, the notification of all, the funeral home, etc. But I was glad to be there for them.
    My sister-in-love was sent to the hospital...bronchitis, a spot on her lung, lots of fat around the liver, gallstones and chronic depression. When my Db told me, Dd and I went out to The Salvation Army, the Dollar Store and Wally World to get and fill a basket with a bunch of stuff. You know...lotion, cross word and word search books, light reading type books, a tiny praying angel doll, housecoat, a snuggly teddy bear, sugar free gum and hard candy. That kind of hospital emergency survival stuff. We snuck it in after visiting hours. She's on an 1800 cal. diet and is quiting smoking. All at the same time. Yikes! All prayers greatfully received with thanks.

    Trying to stop smoking coupled with anything else is bound to be challenging. I'll keep her in my thoughts
