    Do you have a bucket list?
    If you do please name some of the items you'd like to accomplish on it?

    Do you not have a bucket list?
    If not, then can you name one thing you'd like to put on a bucket list?

    Checking in...

    I'm here.

    Not doing so well (hospitalized this past weekend but am now out), still pretty shaky.

    I am enjoying the feel of carpet on my feet.

    Bucket list... (of short-term goals)
    I'm going to eat some ice cream.
    I'm going to get my car's oil changed.
    I'm going to brush Savannah.
    I'm going to vacuum.
    I'm going to put the little litter box back in the big cat carrier.
    I'm going to do some laundry.
    I'm going to wash the dishes.
    I'm going to take out the garbage.
    I'm going to do some serious Febreeze-ing.

    To meet a man worth marrying and do so.

    Well it's apparent i'm here.
    I'm getting worse as the days progress but trying hard to fight the demons within.

    ((((((((Kate te))))))))

    Ya'll are tough gals so do take care of yourselves as hard as it may be. I think the bucket lists are great.

    I hope both of you will feel better soon. Sometimes when I've come out of the hospital It's taken longer than a week or two to feel better....Don't give up hope.

    K...You'll be amazed at what thyroid does for ya! and yah you won't be sleeping the day away. It does take a couple weeks from my experience with it to get the level you need that works the best for you ....And then of course it will take months to know this for sure because they have to keep testing over the course of several months to see where you're levels are.

    My bucket list:

    See my granddaughter still as a sweet lil baby!

    I have more and some distraction action ideas but I'm falling asleep at the keyboard. gnight

    Been away for a few weeks, Things have been hay wire around the house. between the kids and there sperm donor. I have been stressed out and had a recent medicine change. So I have three more things I have to remember during the day.

    The one thing on my list is to take a vacation. leave the kids with their sperm donor and grandparents, That's just a dream, Really I would take a candle lit bubble bath and lock the bathroom door with a do not disturb sign on it.
