    Hello my dahlings

    Weather: hot, humid, over cast.

    Sleep: good

    Mood: good

    Plans: Do what ever my body allows me to do. Still having pain from surgery and still having the burning pain. I hope the burning pain is because the surgery pissed off the nerves and not because the surgery didn't work. uuuggghhh. Been having back pain too, so I am only able to do as much as my body tells me I can do. Tonight is LOTRO night. Hopefully I can play. We have all started new Characters, so if someone can't play one night, it doesn't matter, the rest can still play. So I don't feel guilty on the nights that I can't play.

    You all have a fabulous day. muahs

    Happy Noon!!

    Weather: Hot hot hot

    Sleep: Yuck

    Mood: Excited, still anxious and depressed though

    Plans: My mobility trainer brought me my cane!!!! YAY! He said I did an excellent job, and I feeling more independent already. Going to go out later when it cools off and practice some more. Cook dinner. The boys went to their dad's for the week (ds2 leaves for a week @ Boy Scout camp Saturday and their uncle is getting married the same day.) ds2 is going to miss the wedding, but there's lots of wedding stuff going on this week. Gigi went home with them too, so I've lost my shadow.

    Update: We had a small crisis with ds1 as I posted yesterday. Ex and I spent the afternoon yesterday discussing with ds1 his hopes, dreams, and our concerns both about his commitment, maturity, study habits and that we know exactly how he feels depression wise. Hopefully the week with dad will make a difference.

    Greetings from Texas!!! Hugs to Cookie and Melly, I hope you both feel better soon and all your worries fade away for at least a day!!

    Weather: Cooler but warming up. Got some good soaking rain yesterday, was a real blessing.

    Mood: Wonderful!!! Matt and I are doing great, and it's our anniversary week!!!

    Sleep: Didn't want to get up, but did anyway.

    Plans: Took Peabody to the vet, he got a clean bill of health and the vet got a kick out of his antics. Don't plan on doing much else. Hubby wants a day to relax, so that's his anniversary gift. Hard to believe we've been married 7 years. Seems like just yesterday we were eloping. But I'm very thankful for my wonderful crazy husband!! Don't know how I'd survive without him. Hope everyone has a great day. Stay cool or dry whatever the case may be. Love ya!!!
