    Hope the roads don't get too bad for you Jim! Know how terrifying driving in the snow can be as I nearly had a bad smash myself when we had a bad lot of snow. Someone was watching over me that day, how I didn't crash was a miracle!

    Woke up this morning with headache as expected. Gonna steer clear of the ribena tonight I think. Just about to go out for a Sunday carvery. Dunno whether to go for pork or beef, or both lol.

    Hoping all is well everyone. Jim, please take care when driving. I hope things will be OK.

    Philip, welcome to the Cafe!

    Lexi... I warned you about the drinking. No alcoholism! *bips you on the nose*

    Tommy Tom and I are relaxing. The calm before the storm. No one is getting anyone Christmas gifts except for the kiddo nieces. Gifts for them, and a couple of iPod Shuffles for me ad my mom. Nada else.

    Cheap Christmas. Makes for easy stuff.

    We are off!

    :hug: to all.

    Good Sunday afternoon all. Happy Advent to those, who like me, celebrate it.

    Not much to say except that I wound up not going to get the test after I wrote yesterday's post as my body decided to kick in gear and my monthly cycle began shortly after lunch. So no baby for me. It hit me much harder than I thought it would. Had a good cry and spent quite a lot of time feeling angry and grumpy. I told my husband last night that I really didn't feel like being around all my choir friends and folks from our parish, so we planned to go to a different parish for Mass today. I woke up this morning and felt physically like crap so we decided to wait and go to a later Mass at a different parish still. My mood has taken a nosedive and I honestly don't care if we do go to Mass at all today.

    Anyway, that's the update, such as it is.

    Really hope they fix that septic tank Jim!

    As for me, I'm just packing the last of my stuff, ready to go home. I'm just about to have a shower and need to get my bum into gear. I have had such a lovely week, a little sad to be going home.

    Good morning all.

    jimk, I hope you are able to get everything sorted with your septic tank. I know that must be so frustrating to have to deal with. Good luck with the paperwork too. We have a similar situation at our house with stuff that needs to be gone through, shredded, and sorted.

    I'm really tired this morning and hoping that baby girl will take a decent nap for me later today. I could do with a few more zzzs. Mood-wise I'm struggling a bit. It's definitely not the worst I've ever felt but also definitely not anywhere near how I'd like to be feeling. My mood really took a nosedive Saturday and hasn't recovered. I feel like I'm in a downward spiral. I'm trying not to aggravate my mood and make it worse, but I am afraid it will get worse all the same.

    morning everybody,

    I took one look outside this morning and promptly called up work to say i'm not coming in today. Blizzard is going full blast outside. It's average amount of snow for a snow storm but the wind is making it brutal.

    So to hell with that! I shall experience the blizzard from the safety of my home, thank you. ;)

    heyroo all

    Sales sales sales. Gaaaaa... everyone is in pandemonium! Sell! Sell!! Sell!!! I've been watching real estate buying shows lately, since that is one thing that I would like to know about, and it's something I would like to learn. I want to learn the art of making the deal. I feel it could be of benefit, and a positive.

    We'll see about real estate training, learning to be a broker, being an appraiser, etc etc etc, and advancing in real estate. It's just one more thing to learn.

    We'll see!


    :hug: to everyone!

    Good morning, everyone.

    Have been spending time with sister dealing with Dad's death and the arrangements. Things are planned and underway now, with a few details still to be sorted. Will have a small "celebration of life" reception for Dad. He was a great photographer, so we will set out some of his best photos, play his favorite music, and remember our best times with him. His lady friend will sing a song or two. Dad's drink was "scotch and soda," so we're offering guests a shot of scotch to toast him, in addition to the other food and drinks at the reception.

    Jimk, hope your septic tank is fixed soon, your check arrives from the insurance company, and you get a chance to do your filing. Thanks for the song - perfect for me today!
    NYJmpMaster, wishing you a restful day with peace and quiet!

    Sending out hugs and wishing everyone a day with smiles! :grouphug:

    I hope the reception is healing for you Acy.

    I just watched Pink Floyd The Wall on my huge TV and amazing sound system with my house guest for the week - sadly she is too young and did not have a fine enough ear to garner the appreciation Roger Waters musical genius deserves -- I think I will play it several more times for her until she does :)

    Good morning all.

    jimk, I was wondering how everything went with the septic tank. I hope you are able to get that fixed today and that the insurance folks get your check in your account too. Glad you got a little more sleep. I take mirtazapine too, but it doesn't seem to help me sleep even though I'm on the highest dose.

    Ben, I hope your day is a quiet and peaceful one.

    Acy, that sounds like a wonderful way to remember your dad. Continuing to think of you and your family.

    I have plenty of things that need doing today but no motivation to do any of them. Honestly, I feel like I'm slipping deeper into darkness. It's not a full on sneaky hate spiral (see for a funny definition of sneaky hate spiral and check out her other entries for a good laugh when you need it!), but I can feel it getting closer to that. Right now I just feel unmotivated, withdrawn, quiet, and depressed. I wish I could say I'm hopeful that it's not a sign of bad things to come but I'm wary of hope as I've been burned by hoping so much lately.

    ((AcY)) hope the gathering to celebrate dad's good points and remember goes good and ok.. ben , pink Floyd and the WALL are a one of a kind experience.. hope does capture your friend in the long run.. Ana hope you find some good thoughts and safe place to take some refuge in..

    I went back to bed after bribing zoomies with a candy treat and some of the black wakeup juice.. he really did not want this but saw just how tired I really was atm..

    was thinking that the excessive drowsiness and sleeping already getting too much now and will call and ask for a med nurse to call me today.. need some professional advice.. it's the old damned if you do but much more damned if you don't sort of things..

    got the floor and table and counter sorted thru and what needed to be tossed is in the garbage and filed stuff is safely put in place.. did not take long nad all the worry about doing this was just plain folly.. time in racing game to do the two lap top speed tour of the le mans track..
