I'm trying to get regular christmas cards out too and I have been tearing this house apart still (even while Norm was home) as we cannot find my daytimer with ALL my addresses in it! We have no idea where it is. I cannot even phone people to find out their addresses as **TA DA*** they are in my daytimer.
The dr. called and isn't at all pleased with my cholesterol levels........ i wonder why not, i gained back in 3 months Norm was home everything i lost over the past 4 years............ and we are still trying to get our health insurance straightened out. I should have had this shoulder surgery done while norm was home......... but............... woulda coulda shoulda. That is on top of my ankle that is set for a mri next week that might have the ligaments torn from where I fell in a pothole at petsmart the first week norm was home.
They called to have me bring the Volvo down to Denver today to be fixed from the wreck on the 6th. They brought me out this teny tiny little car that stunk, no reeeeeeekkkkkkeeeeeddd of turkish cigaretts. I can handle Cigar smell and pipe smells as they remind me of my dad (he smoked Borgham Riff and i miss that!) I drove home (1 hr) in rush hour traffic with all the windows down. I had my coat and hood up........... gloves on and still was nauseated from the smell. I got home and called them and told them i would be back tomorrow to pick up something else that i could not tolerate this. If it would only be for 3-4 days okay but we're talking 12 to 14 now. I immediately took all my clothes off and washed them............. I've never been this reactive to smells as things are bothering me in the past 2 months.
And if I don't kill Checker's before he goes somewhere else........... it is going to be a miracle. He broke a Correll plate (shattered it actually) all over the bathroom floor this am. I had forgotten it on the counter up there.............. then tonight i caught him counter surfing in the kitchen again. I have never EVER had a dog that counter surfed before and this is just unreal. I have no idea how to stop him............ Then as Dee is coming into season, he "marked" the basket of clean laundry.........
I just want to go back to bed, and pull the down duvet over my head and not ever get out. Somebody else to watch the dogs for even 24 hours would be the biggest treat. The boys next door are going to help me bath all 4 of the dogs next week........ (take them to the doggie do it yourself).
Norm called at 230 this morning wanting me to find his computer disk as he did something to his laptop........ like i can get it to him in less than a week at this time of year. Never did find his disk.
Sorry to whine........... guess i need to get the red wine to lower my cholesterol. Thanks for listening
|AWWW..Ali..so sorry to hear all the stuff is happening to you!!!!
It can only get better!!! Can offer anything more than my ear and a (good) shoulder to 'wine' on.
Get that bottle of RED...it will do your body, mind and soul some good!!!
|Ali sounds like a BAD day. Have a glass of wine relax and listen to music. Works for me.|
|I'm sorry Ali.
Go with the red wine.
|Oh no you poor thing. If I lived close by I would definitely come look after everything for two or three days.. maybe a week Is there anyone you can call to lend a hand? I'm sure someone could spare a few hours at least.
Hope you manage to get a better car, that smell would be the last straw for me!!
|it seems like you've had a hard time the past few holidays. maybe it's because Norm isn't close to help you out so rain just pours your way? wish norm had a job in town. this has to be hard on him as well.|
|That's definitely a bad day! I hope today goes MUCH better.|
|I'm sorry it's so rough on you right now. I can't imagine trying to manage all that is going on in your life - it is totally overwhelming.
If it's any consolation at all...I'm sure it's not but I'll tell you anyway...I'm originally from Golden and went to CSU, so every time you or one of the other CO people post - especially pictures - you all warm my heart a little. I'm awfully homesick.
I'll have a glass of red tonight and raise it to you.
|Aw, Ali, I'm sorry it's so tough right now...|
|Bless your heart, Ali. You've got your hands full. Wish I could do something tangible to help you. But, at least I can offer a cyber hug.|
|Sorry to hear about all the frustration.
I have never EVER had a dog that counter surfed before and this is just unreal
Totally... it baffles the mind when you first experience a dog that does this.
Try Scat Mats... they work! Panda is a reformed surfer-girl.

|okay unwhining today ;0)
Returned car to Enterprise and Hertz gave me a BRAND NEW Chrysler Town and country Aspen. Loaded to the hilt! I feel much better and safer.......
especially since the storm that hit Wendy is expected in here tomorrow night and Monday we are back down to minus temps according to the weather again............
Thanks for listening guys...........
|That's good news, Ali!!|
|Sometimes you just have to get into fuzzy pj's, curl up with a warm blanket with a good book and forget all your troubles for the day. I can relate to the overwhelmed at this time of year but realize it must be especially hard for you without your hubby. You are an inspiration to us all.
Hugs from me!
