    Hello, everyone. Thought I'd stop by for a visit today.

    Weather: Mostly sunny and cooler here in WNY. Currently 57 with low humidity and going up to the high 60's.

    Sleep: Great

    Mood: Pretty happy.

    Plans: Some projects around the house today - mostly me cheering on eldest son and wonderful wife. I did make a nice macaroni salad ad that is chillin' in the fridge now. At 5:30 my wife and I both have physical therapy. I've been doing sessions in their pool and it is helping my chronic pain.

    Have a blessed and thankful Thursday, folks.

    Hey Dave!! Where have you been hiding??

    Morning to the rest of ya...

    Weather: Upper 80's, low 90's and humid as all get out. Supposed to rain but it doesn't look like it

    Sleep: What exactly is that? Was up til 1 am and finally fell asleep and step-daughter called at 3 am to tell me she was still having contractions....and no, she didn't need to go to the hospital yet. Ugh!

    Mood: Irritable

    Plans: Went to the pdoc this morning. He tweeked my meds again. Upped the trileptal, added some Klonipin to help me sleep and deal with my anxiety issues. Came home, took a nap with the heating pad. After lunch, I've got to call my primary doc to see if I can get in to be seen so I can get the referral to the Gyn or if he'd rather I just hit the ER. Ovarian cysts really, really suck. Still on baby watch. Counting down til tomorrow for payday!

    Weather - upper 50's and raining

    Sleep - good

    Mood - currently melancholy, couple hrs ago, fine

    Plans - many sore muscles this morning due to doing a lot of physical work at volunteer at dentist office in yard and basement (lifting and stocking heavy boxes) . Was going to go to my sisters this morning to do some housecleaning (she's wrking part time and school-so busy), but was too sore to go. Will try tomorrow. So will soak in tub, do some stretching, and prolly just hang out at home today for the most part. will try to get out for a walk at some point.

    Nice to hear from everyone so far!

    Weather: sunny, windy and nice

    Sleep: ok

    Mood: okish, anxious

    Plans: Lots to do, but don't seem to be getting anything done. My oldest son is mowing the lawn for me. That is very hard because I am a perfectionist and it is taking all my willpower not to go take over and do it "right".

    Everyone have a good afternoon/evening. Take it easy and enjoy.

    Cookie, I want to see a picture of your decoration when it is done (and maybe a pic of the bling bling! ).

    Good almost evening

    weather chilly

    sleep to much on my mind to sleep good

    mood feeling slightly less stressed today

    plans already went to the mall. Now I am sitti ng here waiting for my step daughter to bring her dogs back over. She came by to take them to the beauty shop. Then they are mine again...lucky me.

    question: has anyone done something really bad and regret it alot but try to fix it? I shot my big mouth off and said things I should have never said and totally regret it. I hope I can resolve it because I don't want the wrong party to be offended or mad. It is especially bad because I did it to someone I don't even know and who didn't deserve it. I am shocked at myself and hope I can repair what I did. I am so not like that. It was like I was totally out of my mind.

    ddnos replied to mommaange1's response:
    Hey momma, I'm sure we have all done or said things we later regret. In your situation, have you apologized to the person? That would be the first thing I'd do. If you are truly sorry, then letting that person know is what's needed. Whether he/she forgives you or not is up to them, of which you are not responsible.

    bpcookie replied to mommaange1's response:
    was it anger that pushed you to say what you said? Cause I do stuff like that when Im angry and I later regret it. I have one big mouth when Im mad.

    Good Evening Everyone!

    Weather: Sunny highs in the 70's

    Sleep: More nightmares

    Mood: Blah

    Plans: I took oldest to her yearly well check today. I did a load of dishes and laundry too. I made pork chops for supper. I'm reading an interesting book called Evermore: An Introduction by Brewin. It's made me think about somethings I hadn't before now and seeing the insight in new ways.
