    Morning FMily....MiMi in NC....and I am up too darn early again this morning. The furbabies had to get up and out...I had a stressful and exciting week-end. I also have yet another court date this morning. Our Saturday reunion with my GD was great. I could hardly believe that she has grown so much over the past 3 years. I went today to pick up some clothes and things for her so that she will have them at her daddy's house ready when she goes there. I am not really sure when this will be but I wanted to make sure that her room there is ready.

    I hope each of you had a good week-end as well. It is chilly again today and they are calling again for some of the White stuff....I am so ready for spring to arrive....which is getting even closer. I think that said 18 days maybe this week-end...or something close to this anyway. I did notice that I had some of the buttercups already in the front and some tulips peeking out as well.

    Welcome to the new members who have joined our unique FM support group. I am sure that soon each of you will find something that will help you cope better. It does take a trial and error process to find the right combination of tools and tips that will help you cope better. So hang in here and learn all you can. We, FMers, understand and know exactly the path you are does get better once you figure out the ropes...but this takes time and effort.

    I have found that vitamins and supplements and doing other things as well is my basic toolbox of sorts...I also know that I have to limit the stress that I have, which is one of the hardest things that I can control. With so much going on this is not an easy thing for me to do. I have to pace, pace and pace even more...whether I like it or not. I had no choice in this matter.

    Vitamin sure and ask your doctor to check your Vitamin D level which is important to a lot of people these days.

    I hope we will all have a good Monday today and I hope the rest of the week will follow this path as well.

    That's all folks, for now.

    Stay warm and remember that warm weather is right around the corner.


    My personal exchanges are Vitamin D and Pain and Wrath of the Dragon....if you care to visit..

    Good Morning Fmily,

    Spring is showing signs here in NY of arriving despite the ups and downs of the weather..........buds on the Lilac bush and a pussy willow look to the trees in the A &P parking lot......BIG to see that.

    The songs of the birds haven't changed but insect activity is up....I am seeing ants!! SO what a season to come. The big project now is my closets but the spring project is a new raised garden and now grape vineyard for the property.....Excited to get that started. DS#2 has volunteered to help with man power and I see* this garden so clearly. Thanks to Sharon and Pinterest.......this is going to be good. Much better to grow my own then buy something I know nothing about the pesticide level in it....

    It is good for the grands to watch a garden grow too. We will plant for them as well.

    I am hoping to take an active roll in this endevour.....keep the dragon in the south for a bit! .

    We had a lovely weekend celebrating DH's 63rd birthday...dinner out on Sat with the kids and grands and then out for music concert (accordion) on Sunday and dinner at SIL's...laughed alot and it was good. I had to remedicate afer clapping so much...(we were right up in the stage area and they could see me...I had to clap.

    I know it is a trigger but i was stuck being in front of them. OUCH doesn't cut it this morning...

    Going to the eye doctor for the left eye issue...getting used to it. I don't think the gel will completely let go and I will have flashes forever.....and I am used to the floaters now...As long as nothing is going to really go wrong with the eye. BIG for me.

    OK, off to seize the day..........I am hoping all are chipping away a peice of fun and activity in your days to push this pain down a bit. Doing nothing leaves it inthe forefront and then it is awful.....hoping for the best for you all, NancyB

    Happy Monday!

    37? here and going to 42, the snow is melting, and we might get flurries in a day or two. Could this be spring - finally? The birds flit around in the warm afternoons, and you know I love to just watch them!

    Day One of my two-day colonoscopy prep, liquid diet and stuff to drink later. Not looking forward to this with breathless anticipation, but it has to be done to rule out the partial blockage he suspects is in there. I must be strong thru Wednesday! DH keeps eating, tho...

    Gonna run, surf the net for things that have nothing to do with food. Have the best Monday you can possibly have!
