    Morning everyone.....BEEP BEEP!

    Weather: Hot, sunny and humid. I think we've reached a point here where I start the SSDD response.

    Sleep: Like the dead again. Oh how this tweek makes me sleep finally!

    Mood: Still a wee bit irritable from the pain, but excited today!

    Plans: We have our nephew's graduation party today. Kind of nervous because my boys meet ALL of S's family all at once. We're also picking up the step-daughter and taking her with us. She's having all this swelling suddenly in her feet so we're going to swing by a CVS on the way to take her blood pressure. And I just booked the place for our wedding on Oct 13, 2012. Now it seems real. Excited about that and excited about the progress I am making on the small business plan and items to sell.

    Good morning.

    Weather: Currently 56 degrees in WNY and cloudy. Rained all night and until about 9:00 am. More rain and possible t-storms coming.

    Sleep: Very good.

    Mood: Pretty happy.

    Plans: Rain increases my chronic pain levels and stiffness from the arthritis so only resting so far. I would love to plant some of the flowers we bought yesterday into pots but we'll see.

    Have a blessed and super Sunday, friends.

    Good luck with teh graduation party today, Mel!

    Weather - 50

    Sleep - none

    Mood - Not great, not horrible

    Plans - Go to Target pick up a few things, lil bit of housecleaning, maybe do a load of laundry, go for a walk - the longer the better; my sister dropping something off around 4 p.m. so need to be home for her - she likely won't stay too long as she'll just be getting off work. I got good news on friday re a bill i thought i was going to have to be responsible for. Originally it was $2555, then my insurance paid about $1300 and I got a bill for the rest. I was on the phone so fast and turns out incorrect coding - so they will resubmit the bill and it will be paid in full! I've had to deal with that bill since november 2011! Doc wants me to have brain scan but she knows i cant afford it . you have ot pay $3500 up front! It's not an MRI, but something else; can't remember. Its becasue of all my cognitive problems the past year. we checking to see if certain medical organization does the scan, cus if they do, im covered with them 100% (outside my insurance). Ok, fading now. gott go now. hav good day.

    Weather: grey and cool

    Sleep: actually slept very good for the longest time in months but still feel exhausted.

    Mood: anxious but ok

    Plans: just puppy care. It is exhausting. I worry about everything. I will post a picture as soon as I get a decent one. It is hard to get pics because she is always on the move.
    Melly, hope the party went well today. That is exciting about your wedding too! My anniversary is Oct 14th...great time of year for a wedding.
    Dave, take it easy and I hope the weather holds up. I have a friend in WNY who was going to some big country music thing in Buffalo this weekend (if I remember correctly).
    Debbie...I am glad you got good news on the one bill! We have a situation like your other one...with having to pay half of a medical thing upfront. It isn't possible for us.

    Well, Hope everyone has had a good day!
