Come to Fabulous February cafe where fresh fruits and tropical juices of fabulousness await you

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Happy Friday, everyone! Sending energy, hugs, headache remedies, and high five's for the good and the bad going on here. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

I have been running errands all day and will need to head out shortly on more. Liam got hurt at school (shoulder in PE), so I had to pick him up early. I hope it is just tweaked a little and will get better with icing - he has a robotics competition all day Sunday and the team's drivers are not going due to the Super Bowl, so Liam is the driver. Caddy has his first final exams in high school next week - he is surprisingly calm (thank goodness) - his math teacher gave him the formula to figure out what score he needs on each test to get the grade he wants in the class, and that showed him that his hard work all semester will pay off.

Off I go! Where did January go?! AGH!

Way to go Vicky! Just remember this is for you now...just you (and the kids.) You can do this! We believe in you!

Georgia, the trip to the sea sound so lovely! I want to come with! I think this time of year wherever you are is hard. And sometimes we all go through a slump. I've been in one and have been digging out the last 2 days! We will get through this together! I hope you have a wonderful trip and can just let the sea envelope you with peace and contentment.

Dee, hugs to you my friend. May you join Georgia at the sea (at least in our minds!) and find peace and healing.

I am feeling better head wise, but my gut isn't happy. I am going totally wheat free ( no spelt, no einkorn, etc.) Any version of wheat is off limits as I know it is a trigger. And I am tracking everything and watching everything I put in my body. No preservatives, additives, etc. These seem to be triggers for my GI issues as well.

Got a great workout in today even though I didn't have a lot of energy. Workout on my FitDesk bike and did Gold's Gym Cardio Boxing and Wii Active More Combo (more boxing.) Really felt good! Now if the scale could just cooperate!

Hope everyone is doing well! Hugs to all, Cathy

Thank you Dee.

Must be the time of year - I cannot explain but I am feeling down in the dumps. Today Dh is pushing me to go to the coast and a visit to a bird sanctuary. It is near the sea so I am hoping to go to the waters edge and get my feet wet today. We shall see.

Have a happy day everyone.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Took a step forward today in starting to put my needs first and not worrying about the dh. If he gets mad oh well. I spoje to a tax person who said I would get a better return filing head of household and that im the one that can claim my daughter since she lives with me. Dh thought we'd file together. Welli dropped my stuff off to be filed asap without telling dh.yep hes gonna be mad when I tell him but i gotta start thinking about me and the kids and not him.

My kids had another snow day today due to sub zero temps but my school was open. My moms school that she drives bus for was closed too so she watched the kids. My classroom of 6 students only had 1 due to all the school closings. Tomorriw will be a heat wave of 25 degrees. Headed to bed. Have a good night ladies.

Yudelka have a nice day.

Amanda offer them a small incentive and see if they will bring it up to the house. The new photo is wonderful and yes they sure have grown up. Time flies and before you know it they are all grown up.

Dee I catch up on FB and Sparks first thing in the morning before work. I am working 12 - 9 tonight so I feel your pain.

Hugs to everyone.

Hi All, hope all is well with you and yours.

Amanda, that's just terrible that they only deliver curbside. What company is that? Hope you are able to get some help getting into your home and set-up.

Me, hanging in there. Have to go to work for 4pm til 8pm. Using the time to catchup on Sparkand Facebook. Thankfully the weather is cold but clear and best of all no ice.

god morning to all...I finally got a new picture uploaded on my profile, I am so amazed when I see how grown up my kiddos look...sometimes I get a little sad that time is marching on but I will try to enjoy each minute of the kids growing-up years and stop lamenting on past times....that's my self-talk message...lol...
Hope everyone has a wonderful day, I am going to try and line dry my wet laundry this afternoon, its supposed to get into the low 20's today so we shall see...I will be getting a new washer tomorrow, but they will only deliver curbside so I guess I will be pleading with my neighbors down the road to help me get it up my rather steep driveway and into the house and up some steps...I sure have missed the convenience of the washing machine, even though its only been a couple of days...as Tina said the other day, you don't appreciate stuff until you don't have it... so true!!
Hugs and prayers to all

Good morning ! Happy Wednesday Georgia,Dee, Vicky , irish, Tina, Amanda, Cathy, hope I did not miss anyone emoticon
Georgia hope you are feeling better, we all have those days. I guess that when we feel a little blue, is an opportunity to be creative, is like our body is telling us " I is time to make some changes, try something new."

Cathy hope things work out well with your truck, is hard with this low temperature, but it looks like you and DH have it under control.

Amanda hang in there, you are very strong and a very good example of overcoming challenges, keep remaining positive as you have, I know friends that have severed Autism kids, yours are more HF . I'm always amazed of how this particular friends look at life. They find strength from the very bottom to keep going each day. I think that one of their strategies is to always find something positive not matter what behavior or challenges their child may be experiencing and the list is endless !!!&*%, and they always celebrate the small steps and victories, and they are also very optimistic.

Tina, do all this things really happen to you !? Wow , you always amazed me with something that broke in your house mmm . hope nothing happen today :)

Vicky, is all good, do what is best for all of you and specially the kids. There is not easy way about this situation, But take it as a learning experience, and to grow as a person.

Irish, glad to hear good news on your end, hope you keep having more relaxing days !

Dee, thanks, yes is a lot of hard work to help our kids in school.

If I miss anyone sorry, I will try to do my best next time :-) hope everyone have a wonderful day :-)

Vicky, glad you are asking your lawyer for advice regarding dh's behavior issues. That's the best way to do it.

Amanda and Cathy, Sending HUGS to you both!

Tina, I will have to try your drink for detoxing. Feel I could use one. Hope the lounge is coming along nicely.

Georgia, HUGS! I know that blue feelingů

Yudelka, hope all is well.

Everyone Else, hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. Another icy commute to work, lots of road closures, slide offs, and accidents. Luckily dh drove me to work and I only had to be there til 2pm. So now safely home and enjoying a quiet evening with family and Sparking.

Vicky, I agree...just keep moving forward and get the advice of your lawyer. Hope it all works out for the best for you and your kids...and soon!

It is -14 right now at 8 in the morning!! Incredible weather. My truck has been starting but only because my DH has taken the battery in every night to stay warm. Today may not be so good with the low temps. It will be okay no matter what.

Gotta get to our schooling.

Hope everyone has an amazing happy healthy day!

Thank you for all the advice. I will ask the lawyer for advice. She left me a messsge yesterday saying giver her like acweek to look over our old stuff from the custody case and the info she got regarding the divorce. Then we'll talk more on how to procede.

Im just gonna keep working on distancing myself more with the DH so he and the kids can get used to us being separate and not always together.

howdy to all....
Vicky, I agree with the others, but I also feel your concern..my ex is very unstable, even many years after our divorce, and he still makes me very nervous when he gets upset...
Becky, hope your week is going well...
Cathy, I am proud of you with the schooling...its been much harder for us this month with my broken finger, Zane's accident and subsequent issues, the weather, etc...I need to get back on track so that the kids can get back on track...my oldest son is HFA but behaves so much like your Aspie...I am sooo worn out with the constant long drawn out discussions he puts me through...and yes, he always has to be right too!!
Dee, way to go on the exercise...
Georgia, I hope your first day back at your home store is a positive one..
Yudelka, hope today is a wonderful day for you...
Tina, you are a great example of someone who makes the best of any situation...way to go on being so close to being done with all the decorating, re-organization, etc...
I am tired right now, as I have just spent a bout 3 hours outside in the freezing cold fixing my van. Earlier my oldest son got mad at me because I wouldn't give him any more mustard (he already had gobs of it on his sandwich)..he slammed outside, called me a bunch of names, and then proceeded to yank open the van passenger door so hard that the sliding mechanism/chain jumped out of its groove and the door came un hinged...it took my helpful neighbor and I forever to fix it, and its currently waaaayyyy below freezing...I sometimes get so tired of the kids bad choices with behavior, but I know I have to maintain a mature attitude (while inside I am silently screaming "I wanna kill you!!!")...
so, Im cold and tired and off to bed...sigh...never a dull moment around my house ...lol
prayers and hugs to all...

Be strong. We support you in every decision.

Cathy glad the kids love school and if you can have a day off to enjoy the snow that too is good.

I am going back to work today and it should be interesting to return to my store after 7 weeks away.

Hugs Everyone!

Vicky, My personal opinion, is that it isn't your place to prepare your soon to be ex for the upcoming events. Keep your phone handy anytime you are in contact with him just in case. Also, maybe alert your lawyer and ask for advice. You can get a moderator (at least here they will appt. one) to help facilitate any proceedings safely. I had to do that myself. We are always here for you. Praying for you!

Weather is cold and I am tired. My Aspie loves to "debate" as he calls it and it is exhausting! He always has to be right and if you don't agree you are wrong and he berates and condescends. I really put it to him yesterday and told him he should be respectful of people, etc. I stayed calm, said what I felt I needed to and left the room. Still it is so exhausting!

School today for us although I think a lot of schools are closed due to weather. We don't mind as the kids love school it keeps them in routine and then when we really need a day off (like when it snows, or the weather is warm and sunny or we all need a break) we can take it.

Still working hard to stay away from wheat, eat well, track etc. Made my own wheat free bread yesterday for the bread maker and it actually turned out well! My first try was a horrible flop...uh, my bad. The yeast was from 2007!! Oops! LOL

Hope everyone has a wonderful healthy happy day!

Hugs to all, Cathy

Hello all. Glad to see all the updates. Amanda glad you got a better dx for your kiddos. Hope the neck feels better.

My mom is starting to make me nervous. Now that I have been assigned a lawyer and things will start, she is afraid DH is going to unravel since he continues to be in denial. Im wondering if I should keep quiet about the fact thag things are going to start moving, or just wait and let him find out when it happens. My thought are that maybe I should prepare him now and if he seems unstable then I can put precautions into place sooner rather than later. Meaning an order of protection if I have to. We'll see.

G'day all.
Cathy yes we are going to tackle this together. I have been on a sort of kind of detoxy thing this week. Basically gave up caffeine and started drinking hot water in the morning with cinnamon and honey in it. They are both really good for you and really I mean really help with regularity. Gained so much weight over Christmas just want it gone. Have not changed anything else. Still have some chocolate every night but just wanted to get off the caffeine train. Tomorrow is one week and will let you know if it made a difference. Found out caffeine makes you hungry.
I am also pretty much wheat free. Just does not agree with me anymore.
Amanda owie. Take care of yourself. Lots of heat and massage should help.
Dee way to go on the exercise. Kids are back to school next week so I will have more time to move.
Becky glad you are having a relaxing time. You deserve it.
Yudelka congrats to your son. What a great achievement.
Georgia glad you have had a relaxing weekend. You deserve to have many many more.
We are still having cold showers but a bucket of hot water from the kettle washes my hair so not a problem. It is amazing how we adapt to changes.
Putting the dvds back today in the lounge. It will be a mammoth task.
hugs to all, tina

Dee well done on the exercise.

Becky have a relaxing time.

Amanda when you get home from the special Olympics put a heat pack on your neck and that might help.

Cathy i hear you on the wheat. I try to avoid it where possible and even buy spelt pasta rather than wheat.

Had a relaxing day yesterday and then my neighbours came over for an impromptu dinner. They were giving us a small sofa that they did not want (I am giving it to my mum as it fits in her verandah) and then they were over for dinner. It was a wonderful evening and little Isaac watched the Jungle book and had a lovely time.

Life's small pleasures.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Becky, glad you are having a relaxing weelend.

Cathy, hope eliminating wheat helps you. It seems to be problematic for many people.

Amanda, hope your neck feels better and your dd has a good time at basketball.

Me, hanging in there. Got up and exercised this morning and feel good about that.

morning all....
I think weight gain is an issue for all of us this time of year...I used to think it was because of the cold but now I am more disposed to think its related to the time of year, not the temperature....its almost as if our bodies are connected to the calendar and no matter what we do our bodies respond by gaining weight during November through March...I think someone should study this hypothesis!!!
I am in pain this morning, slept wrong or something, cant move my neck without wincing in pain...wish i could lay down but my daughter has a basketball tournament (Special Olympics), so I gotta go and be a good, supportive mom...
Hope everyone else has a peaceful, blessed Sunday..
hugs and prayers

Hi Everyone!

Becky, so glad you are having a relaxing weekend. You deserve it!

Weather here is dangerously cold, so staying inside as much as possible.

Georgia, momma kitty (Pearl) is fixed so not an issue. But I agree with you that would have been horrible! I love the kitties we have, but no more!

Ladies, we are going to get through this weight issue together. I am going wheat free as much as possible as that seems to be an intolerance I have. There is much research out there about the benefits of wheat free whether you have an allergy, intolerance or not. The book Wheat Belly is a great book as well as Healthier Without Wheat.

Well, I need to get a move on as I have school work, housework and some lower body workout to do.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Amanda so good to hear from you that all is going good with your son. Maybe now with the new eval and all you can see some positive things happen. I hope you are looking after you too young lady. You are important to those children of yours and you must stay healthy.

Cathy I hear you on the weight. I have gained much and at times it seems nothing I do budges those scales. I am trying something new this week and shall let you know how it goes.
Oh and I hope that cat is not pregnant now that she has been returned to you. It is a shame that the poor lady has no self esteem and I am sure the cat made her feel needed. Hope she comes out of her dilemmas ok.

Tina, Becky, Vicki, Yudelka hope you are all doing well. If I have forgotten ayone blame the middle age hormones for that one.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Amanda, I think we posted at the same time! Hugs to you my friend. So glad your son is doing better and that you got a more accurate eval. I hear ya on the weather. We've had crazy weather here too and if we didn't homeschool we probably would be missing a lot of days as well. Hope you yourself are doing well and that things continue to go better. You deserve it!! Hugs!

Good Morning My Friends!

Well, we are up one in the kitty department. The woman who took the momma cat can't keep her. She brought her back yesterday and Pearl is doing well here. My kids are thrilled as they loved this cat. I am guarded as we shall see how she integrates with all her not so little kittens! I love animals so much so this is a good diversion for me. Sadly this woman is in an abusive relationship and it doesn't sound like she feels good about herself. I told her she was worth it and she said she cried and said that "was the nicest thing anyone had said to her!" Sad.

I am a bit frustrated and down as my weight is up a bit and I've been working so hard to eat right, track and exercise sensibly. Go figure. Also, my hip acts up randomly and periodically which makes me anxious as to when it will happen. The pain is for a split second and gone. I am doing exercise that doesn't seem to aggravate so we shall see. I won't give up!

Tina, way to go on all the work with the cabinets and getting your room finished. Hope your feet are better soon! And that the pipe issue can be fixed easily and for very little money. Hugs!

Vicky, that is excellent news about the lawyer! I hope everything goes well and quickly for you. Keep taking care of you! And a belated Happy Birthday to Bryan!

Georgia, glad you had a wonderful time at the beach! We have subzero weather where we are right now. The high on Monday will be -7! Hope you have a wonderful rest of days off.

Yudelka, way to go helping others. Wonderful of you!

Becky, hope you have some relax time this weekend. You are so busy and do so much for work and your family.

Dee, sending extra hugs and positive thoughts. Hugs!

Okay, hope I didn't miss anyone.

Hope you are all doing well!!

Hugs to all, Cathy

good morning all, its snowing in Southern KY today again...between the bitter cold, ice, and snow, the county schools have only had a few days back since the start of the year...its crazy!!
Dee, hope you are feeling a bit happier...I know the winter can take it out of you especially when its overcast...hugs,,,
Georgia, glad you had fun at the beach...I don't like really hot weather but I am wishing for a bit of a warm up at this point....and I love the beach no matter what time of year, its always beautiful...glad you're getting to go back to your own store too...
Cathy, hope things are going well for you and your gang...
Becky, you are such a cheerful giver...we appreciate you giving us your positive outlook, its really helps on days when life aint so pretty :)
Vicky, that's great news on the lawyer, it sounds as if things are headed in a good direction for you...
Tina, sorry about the cold water, leaks, washing machine failure, etc...not fun!!! I guess the only positive is that its at least not quite so bad showering in cold water when its so hot outside, right? Hope it all gets resolved speedily for you...
Yudelka, congrats on your son's achievements...its so great when we can celebrate their successes....kudos on volunteering too, I do a lot of volunteering with various groups, mostly special needs groups, and I get sooo much out of it too...
Moonstream, thanks for the tip about the parenthood show, I didn't even know it was out there...
Howdi and good wishes to anyone I have missed, hope everyone is doing well..
On our end, my son is still recovering from his scary accident, he is more active now than he was at first, he still has to take it easy due to the fractures and seizures, but keeping a 12 year old autistic ADHD kiddo chilled out is not an easy task...we recently had him reevaluated by an autistism spectrum evaluator, she is a respected pediatrician too, and I am so glad we had it done...my middle child had been dxd as PDD-NOS for the longest time but I knew it was more than that...the eval showed that he performs and responds and behaves at a lower level than previously thought, and while all kids are now "autism spectrum" he is now listed as functioning much lower than on his earlier reports...this will help us with appropriate placement if he ever goes back into the classroom...he is currently on homebound until the end of the school year and Im not sure if he will go back after summer...he has gone through h*** with our school system over the past several years!!
Ok, yall, have a great week, go swim or go build a snowman, either way live it up...lol...

Gotsme good news today. Got a letter in the mail saying I was assigned a lawyer from legal aid. The really good news is that the lawyer is the same lawyer I had when I did my custody hearing. I'm so excited. It means thing should hopefully get moving. Finally!

G'day all.
Another cold shower this morning. Guess things do come in threes. Dryer died, hot water system died and then when guy came to replace it found that it wasn't just the hot water system we have a burst pipe somewhere inside the house or under the lovely concrete we saved for and finally could afford to put down. Now $220 for leak busters to come in and find the leak, then depending on where it is either breaking through the concrete to fix the problem or rerouting the pipe through the roof to the room the pipe has burst in. Praying that it is just a connection just under the hot water system then it won't be as expensive. Just don't need it at the moment.
But yet will I rejoice in the Lord. I will joy in the God of my salvation. He is my strength.
My lounge in finished and today we start putting back the dvds and ornaments.
hugs, tina

Yudelka congratulations for the honour roll. So wonderful to see a good achievement.

Yes I am going to the beach but I will not swim. I dare not put the world through the trauma of seeing me in a swimsuit. So funny. I shall take photos and wet my feet and just have fun with friends.

Going soon so this will be very short.

G'day all.
It is amazing how over 30 double g's in your feet can hurt. Still sore today. Pulled the offending plant out this morning wearing gloves and shoes. Hope to have no more problems with then.
Georgia so glad you got some rain. Enjoy your cleaning frenzy. I love cleaning, well most of the time.
Becky you are a sweet girl and you always make me smile. Hope your car troubles are cheap and easy to fix.
Dee double g's are prickles that look like little pyramids that stick into your feet with little barbs that really hurt and won't let go. Dogs quite often get them stuck in their paws. I had about thirty in each foot and each step I took put in more. It was owie and now my feet hurt because they went into those nerves at the bottom of my feet. Should be better by tomorrow. I will help you by walking beside you holding your boot straps if you need me too. X
Cathy hope you are all doing well. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Busy day today.
love and hugs, tina

Way to go Yudelka! That is wonderful that you will be volunteering!

Georgia, glad you made it home safe in the rain and that you will be back at your store.

Dee, I understand the down times. Give yourself some down time when you can and relax and do something you really like to do. Work I'm sure isn't helping. Hugs.

Tina, hope the you are okay after stepping in "Double G's." Way to go on getting further on your T.V. and bookcase wall unit. You are amazing!

Becky, Vicky, everyone I missed-hugs!

HI Everyone, hope you have a good day/evening.

Yudelka, How nice that you are volunteering. Good way to get back into the work arena, plus you will be making contacts and it could turn out to be a position for you when you are ready.

Georgia, YEAH on going back to your own store! Shorter commute and hopefully better weather.

Tina, what is a "double g's" that you stood in? Is that like poison ivy or something? Do hope you were able to get the tv/shelving into place while the kids were swimming.

Cathy and Becky, do hope your busy days settle down for you.

Becky, Glad you are concentrating on the positives. I need to look on the bright side as well.

Moonstream, good to see you posting again. Thanks for the reminder about Parenthood. I had been watching it but then started working all kinds of hours and have not been able to keep up with it.

Amanda, hope all is well.

Vicky, HUGS!!

Me, hanging in there. Went from near 70 yesterday to today with overnight temps in the 20's and day high of 40 supposedly. Right now it is 5pm and we are having a rain/sleet/possible snow mix coming down with strong winds. The wind is howling outside the windows while I type and you can feel the cold air coming through them and the door frame. OY!! Possibility of ice on roads for Friday morning. I'm hoping not as that will be a mess trying to get to work.

I've been down in the dumps the last few days. Not sure why but my motivation has taken a nose-dive and I'm trying to pick myself back up by the boot straps. emoticon

Becky I have shown the people at the store I temped at how to choose the positive side of things. The area is a poor one and with a lot of unemployment and I gave them techniques to change things to positives in a very negative environment.

Keep up your happy smiling attitude it comes across to us here in the cafe.

Yay for rain, shorter commutes, and days off! Enjoy, Georgia.

Thanks for the compliment, Tina. This week has been a tough one (car troubles, etc.), but I meant it when I titled my Spark page, "I choose happiness." I'm glad to hear that I can make that attitude of gratitude show through. We all can use positive energy from others. :)

Oh the rain was absolutely amazing. Not happy about driving home in it last night as the big trucks were spraying my windscreen and it was hard to see the road.
Thank God I got home safe and sound and now have 4 days off before I go back to my store.

Cleaning frenzy around here today and then mini birthday party with little neighbour turning 3 today.

Hey, Georgia, yes you are right sometimes eating healthy in some cases is not enough, some people can get a very bad Flu not matter what they do.

Moonstream, thanks for the reminder about the show parent hood I stop watching it, got to busy with others stuff, I will go back to it.

Irishmun thanks I will try to enjoy as well I'm doing it for me and for the kids.

hello Dee glad to see you are still around, is hard to keep up with so much, I'm in the same boat but always try to check in like you :-)

Vicky we are here for you, I know the feeling, but when a door close many will open, sometimes we need to loose almost everything to learned that God is everything, he knows your situation and he will give you the strength to endure this hard times, talk to him every day like you talk to a friend, and you will see how he answers back :-)

Tina, well I like walking a lot, it relaxes me from all the stress. I have done more than 5k but lately not so much so you are right need to start getting ready :-) I hope your project when well at your house, I too try to do things when kids are out with my DH.

I wanted to shared with all of you that after 9 years of staying home with the kids, I'm slowly going back to the work force, I'm volunteering my time in an institution that helps the special need community, they have preschool, after care, rest care, education for teens and adults who would like to get training in a short career or life skills. And all kinds of therapies for special needs. I'm so happy when I work for them, I feel I'm giving back what the community has given our family. thanks to all that support that institutions like this one, give our kids, my son is doing so well today. I don't have any regrets of staying home with the kids, I was able to support my son in all his therapies, and help him over come many challenges thanks to that time I was able to take off from work. I can't apply for a job yet, still taking care of my 3 1/2 year old but soon she will be going to school. emoticon
emoticon nice to see you all in this community of emoticon

Hi Cathy.

Hot hot hot day expected again today and already my feet and hands are swollen at 530 in the morning. Humidity is high. Clouds in the sky but no sign of rain (yet).

Happy days everyone.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

G'day all.
Yudelka a five K walk sounds wonderful. Hope you have a ball. Are you practicing now or is it something you regularly do.
Moonstream hi. Hope you are doing well.
Cathy sending you hugs and hope your home is peaceful at the moment.
Dee I love to start early too. That way you have time after work to sit or do things and not be too tired.
Georgia hope you are back at your regular store soon too.
Becky hope you are doing well.
Vicky you seem to be getting stronger and stronger. You go girl. So proud of you.
Kids are out swimming today at Adventure World a water based theme park so I am going to hopefully get the tv cabinet cut and put in.
Should be a peaceful morning.
Love and hugs to all, tina

Same here - working mornings is better. After 9 years, I still do not like teaching in the evenings.

Hugs to all!

Tina I hope you find some time for doing what needs doing. You will get it done.

Dee I prefer the early mornings too. In out and done.

Just flying through. Working at this other store means I have less time for me . I am hoping to be back at my own store soon.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Morning All, sending thoughts, prayers, and emoticon emoticon

Vicky, if you lose some friends because of the divorce then they weren't true friends to you. Glad you did not try to make contact after dh stormed off. I know it is rough right now but you are doing what is best for you and your children.

Georgia, Tina, and Becky, hope things settle down for you.

Me, hanging in...off to work soon. Dislike having to wait around to go in for 10:30, would rather go in at 6am.....I know I'm strange... emoticon

G'day all.
Seems like all of us are going through a busy, rough, tiring patch at the moment. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and hopefully next week I will have time to sit and chat. Only two weeks left before the kids go back to school and I haven't even got their school things yet.
hugs, tina

Vicki I lost many friends after the divorce. Couldn't have been very good friends if they could leave like that. New ones will appear and your life will be much nicer. Glad you did not ring him etc. His true colours are coming out now.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

I love Parenthood! Its an awesome show!

Going out to lunch with 2 good friends tomorrow. Have some friends that I think I might be losing due to the impending divorce. Hurts alot. Oh well their loss.

Yudelka, enjoy the 5k. I did a 10k this morning at Disneyland - fun time. I always enjoy races, because I get to "walk and talk" to my friends. My sons want to do a Disney 5k with me soon. :)
