".....but now have to finish my breakfast so I can go buck some hay."
The only jobs here when I was growing up were farm jobs. Hauling hay, milking cows, and so on. Now there are homes where most of the farms used to be. I think it was good for us to be close to the land, and actually know where milk came from. Some of the kids I ask "do you know where milk comes from?" say "every one knows that, it comes from the store."
Sorry, I got sucked back into the mists of time. Ah well, humidity is supposed to be good for your skin.
"Dad's sermon yesterday was nice - will comment more on that later if I have the time."
Dad........ the clam?
I wish I could have heard it.
Not trying to be funny, I really wish I could have heard it.
It sounds like AW is buried in projects
I guess that is good. It keeps you busy, and out of trouble. Or it may keep you in trouble.
I suppose it depends on the way you look at it. How does Aussie look at it?
I would really like to hear your daughter comment on that one.
"We went swimming today at the public pool near Boise ID. I dived off the high dive once, mainly because Neaksis doubted my ability to do it. "
I wonder if she doubted, or if she just wanted you to do it, so she said it in such a way that.......
I should probably shut up.
(SS mutters under his breath - "I should have liked to see it too, I really would have." )
"T&L and Tucktummy -
New online game addiction - Boggle."
I don't have time for Boggle.
Sigh............. I wish I did.
Was it one of Charles Shultz's characters that said "Life gets complicateder and complicateder."
"When I'm in my dotage and the kids have moved out, I am SO going to go to Boggle tourneys."
You will not. You'll be too busy being a grandma. And going on trips with the Wookie.
It's better than Boggle anyway.
"Had to take AJ to the hosp in the middle of the night for difficulty breathing. Apparently all this trouble he's been having is due to asthma, brought on by ???
2 breathing treatments and some IV steroids later, and he's fine except for all the sore muscles from coughing and wheezing for hours before he gave up and went in.
He has to visit the doc later today and get some inhalers. That's my last 12 hours in a nutshell."
Sorry for both of you. I see real life still goes on, and on. Glad there was a hospital, and glad there is some relief. Please tell AJ hi for me. I hope he is doing better now.
SS thinks some more.........
I hope you are getting enough sleep.
AW on AJ's medical problems:
"now remember Neak .. count to 10 before you say anything."
You made me laugh AW. Thanks, I needed that.
"I think if you get sick, due to environmental considerations, less than 2 months after you move there temporarily, it's just possible that it may not be an optimal place to plan to move to permanently. That's what I think. Not that anybody's asked me..."
I still haven't heard much about the move, except that it's in progress.
Well, reading on down I see T&L commented on it some. Not enough, but some.
A major move is a difficult thing in more ways than just the move. I probably shouldn't be asking about it.
I read all the comments about moving to Texas, and Australia. It sounds wonderful, but I think I'll stay here.
I also (though it was difficult) read the comments on dog poo.
We just put ours on the compost pile, and tilled it into the garden in the spring. I never felt it was a problem.
We put all the compostable stuff from our house in a 1 1/2 gal tub on the kitchen counter, and when full, it goes out to the compost heap in the garden. This heap moves around the garden from year to year, and every spring, it gets tilled in. I notice that things planted where this heap was located (the last two or three years) grow much bigger than the others around them. The twins don't like emptying the tub, and rinsing it out, but long term it does help the garden. It also cuts down on what goes into the land fill.
Kimimy, my boys figured out long ago how to save on napkins. (serviettes to you AW)
They just wiped their face and hands on their shirt tail.
I should have a talk with Mr C, and the Dervish. They could start saving too.
CAN YOU BELIEVE THE NERVE OF CINDERELLA.
"I had a good time. "
BTW, it's fun to tease you. I hope it feels like teasing on your end.
SS chuckles, and goes on.
"last I heard were in Miles City to have "a french fry" at DQ. Not sure if that was one apiece, or if they're cutting it in thirds."
That made me laugh too. I love the humor on this thread.
So sorry. I know we can't fix it. I won't give you advice, but will say that you are in our prayers.
Can I ask some questions though?
What are you thinking?
This is ongoing. When you have good days, you don't think about it. When you have bad days, all the thoughts come flooding back.
So, the question, what are you thinking?
Through the grace of God we can change, but some people don't want to change. I am wondering what would prompt him to want to change.
I discovered one day(long ago) that my W wanted to leave. She did not, but she wanted to. I began to change. We are happier now than we have ever been, so I know it is possible for things to improve.
Just don't go along thinking that no one cares, and that you are all alone. OK?
Hi Neaksis. Good job with the High Dive. I would have loved to be there.
Hi CC. Good winter?
Would love to know how you are.
How are the girls?
Wishing everyone well.
