When I was a little girl my Mom would always make sure I made a pit stop before we went anywhere. All of us in the family did. Guess it was a tradition. Anyway, that's how I've always been since, always making a stop before getting into the car. Even if things aren't urgent, right before heading to the car I make what I call a pre-emptive stop so we can drive further along our route once we hit the road.

Why is it though when you're home or at work you can go for hours between breaks but get into the car for a trip and you gotta stop along the way (45 minutes from home for us and we KNOW I'll want to stop ).

Road vibration. After the first hour I'm back to good for three hours.

Morning all! I stopped by for a cuppa before the rest of my day gets going. Daughter #2 and I grumped at one another already this morning so I need to turn my day around. I swung by Today's Menu but was far too late to start the dinner thread, I'll try tomorrow (tonight!) Today I've got a million things to do, but only one project I really WANT to work on. I might whiz through the chores and try to get some work done on my fun project before I leave for work. What's up for everyone around here?

Hey kitty cats, long time no see. Those house elves treating you right?

don't you hate the way those 'grumps' make you feel? it's not so bad if you can let it blow over quickly. i wish i was wired that way. instead, i tend to 'stew' over every little spat for way too long, replaying it fifty different ways in my head, what i should have said, who was 'right', how i will make up (or not)...my best bet is to choose my battles in the first place, cause acts two and three never go well for me....

what is your 'fun project' lexi, do tell....

do y'all know that we have National Doughnut Day coming up this friday? HELLO, Coffee and Donuts--we should be at the forefront of this one, here at the coffee klatch!!! who has a special donut recipe for our donut party, june 7th? can't give up the recipe? that's okay--just bring donuts!

Knock knock, Can I come in? Is anyone there? I brought a good lunch. You can read about it on the "what's for lunch?" thread. Just came in from the garden. I have been planting flowers today. They look pretty, but take a lot of work. Just relaxing now.

I was getting some serious pain in my back. I thought it might be the start of another heart attack. Nope. Blood pressure right on spot. Every time I took a breath, it hurt big time. Finally figured it out. I have pleurisy. It has been years and eons since I had this. It has been about 40 years since I had it this bad. I have it in both lungs. So now all I can do is lay down on my back (I hate that position) since I don't feel the pain. Have fun.

You go ahead and lay down. The kitties and I will take care of you. Please remember to call for help if it gets serious. Sorry you are down. I will share lunch another time with you. It doesn't sound like you will want to chat or eat. Oh, Addie, I think you fell asleep. Have a nice rest.
