    Weather: triple digits

    Sleep: good

    Mood: good, I think

    Plans: Bank, watch tv, clean, do some crafty stuff, LOTRO. Ive been making some safety pin shirts. I just make my daughter one and now Im working on another one. Here are what safety pin shirts look like:

    I made a pink t-shirt like this. I cut it in half and put it together with safety pins. But I used beads with my safety pins and then put random pins around the shirt.

    Good morning (almost afternoon in WNY) everyone.

    Weather: Brilliant sunshine and 61 degrees heading up to 70.

    Sleep: Pretty good. Newest Chihuahua puppy decided to yelp after we put her in her crate for the night at 11:30. I came back out for about an hour and just sat in the living room where her crate is and watched DIY Network. She finally settled and I went back to bed. She yelped again for about 15 minutes then it was all quiet until 6:30 am.

    Mood: Pretty good. A bit manic. I can tell because my wonderful wife gets quiet while I ramble.

    Plans: Picked up my dad at 7:30 am at his assisted living facility and took him to the VA hospital for an echocardiogram. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure a few weeks ago and they are trying to determine exactly how to treat him. After that, we came and picked up my wonderful wife and eldest great son and all four of us went out to breakfast. Took my dad back to his ALF after that. Home now resting waiting for our contractor to come to quote a cost for new storm doors.

    Have a blessed and wonderful Wednesday (I love spelling that word, LOL) friends!

    Very cute shirt cookster! Seems we're all in a crafty kind of mode lately!!!

    Weather: Mix of sun and rain...and just plain hot

    Sleep: Not enough. Went to bed late and my mom called early.

    Mood: Still angry although that's on a slow simmer, but MIL hasn't awakened yet.

    Plans: Avoid MIL as much as possible. Her negativity is stiffling. May go out to the beach to refresh emotionally and cleanse some of my own negative energy. Check to see if S and I can escape for a day or two. That's about it.

    Good Afternoon
    Can you believe my daughter is still sleeping at 1:15

    weather 70 and sunny

    sleep really good

    mood pretty good

    plans going to get a tattoo. It is a Kangi meaning happiness. It is all colorful. I would post a pic but I don't know how to do it. Can't figure it out. Other then that, my step daughter had to take her puggle I have been babysitting to have surgery on her hip. She should be dropping her off soon. I hope she will be ok with all the wild playing animals here. I don't want her to get hurt

    Hello my friends, long time no-see!

    Weather: Beautiful - high 70's (no, this does not mean I was high in the 70's)

    Sleep: 7 or 8 hours, but I never feel rested when I wake up, thanks to my fibromyalgia.

    Mood: Relieved. I got something done that I needed to do weeks ago, but was not able to do because I have been depressed.

    TRIGGER :I've been off for a long time, mostly due to losing my little red dog a month ago. It still hurts like hell, but I able to focus on other things now. I had to go to my pdoc for additional meds, and I don't know if it the meds or just time, but I don't cry as much (except for now).

    Gotta go,


    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

    ((((((((( Debbie )))))))))))

    Just try to think one thing at a time. If necessary, write yourself a reminder where you can see it. Even if it is "eat", you are doing something.



    PS. Thanks for the hugs.

    Weather: 70 degrees and sunny, perfect.

    Sleep: not good, I had a hard time falling asleep.

    Mood: Feeling anxious and unsafe. Not sure what I am going to do about that.

    Plans: I am doing a partial hospitalization program right now so I am busy with that during the day. The evening is a whole different story. What to do with myself now, I don't know.
