That was news to me...about not all scorpions being deadly....good news!
My vent is that I forgot to take my 20 lb. turkey out of the freezer until late last night, Tuesday, and it is not going to be thawed by tomorrow unless I do something quick. All the sites I've visited say I have to either take days in the frig or spend hours changing cold water, but if I use the cold water way, I have to cook it immediately after!....I don't want to cook it until tomorrow! So now I don't know what to do. Do you suppose I can thaw it half way the cold water way ,and then put it in the frig to defrost the rest of it the slow way and cook it tomorrow? Another vent is that I am new to this website and am having a hard time finding where to ask such questions.

Ok, I really, really hate to be venting at this time! Remember last Thursday how I fell "over nothing" and thought I broke my toe? Well it has been bothering me all week to the point where I couldn't sleep at night because the throbbing and pain was keeping me awake. I would lay there and cry it hurt so bad. I know, I'm stubborn. Well this morning at 8am ds took me to the Emergi Clinic. I broke my toe in two places and also the bone on the side of my foot! Gee, no wonder it hurt. At least now I have good meds for the pain. lol I also have a stylish boot I get to wear.
Anyway that's not the half of it. All three of my brothers have decided to come home for Thanksgiving! My older brother I don't mind. He will pitch in and help. The two younger are going to be the death of me. They think they're so good to be coming to see my mom who they haven't seen since June. Don't get me wrong, I love my brothers to death. But my nickname for them is "dumb and dumber". I just don't want to deal with this right now. I am just so frustrated right now. I am roasting a turkey today and then again tomorrow so that I have enough for leftovers. Dh and ds couldn't survive without leftovers.
I'm done now, I just need to get this off my chest before tomorrow. I will get through this and try my best to enjoy the day.

Barb

I have put a message on your user control panel. You will see a link in the top right corner of your screen under "your notifications", or you can link to it in the top blue menu, second in called "User CP".

I have been pretty ill the last 3-4 days and now at least the pain is gone..It was so bad that pin meds didn't touch it. Now I need to get stuffing made and cranberry sauce..DH Is going shopping for me now and in the last 15 minutes he has asked me at least 30 questions, what size garbanzo beans, what brand, do you want canned cranberries,? Nope get the fresh so I can cook them, on and on and on..Right this minute I could just scream..I'm weak as hell and don't even want to do this..Am I being a poop or what? While he is gone I'm going to try and nap for a few minutes...My daughter should be here soon and I know she will help but it will be another round of questions..What I wouldn't give to hide for a week..Thanks for listening guys..hugs,
kades

oh Kades... I'm sorry. I wish I could help... I'd just have to ask more questions though. Or just take over and do it my way which wouldn't really be too nice either. Well...know that you are loved and that I'm thinking of you!

smiles, T

Kades, I will be PM'ing you momentarily, but I just want to say I know your frustration and wish I could come and just cook the meal for you. I wouldn't have to ask you a single question and would find my own way around your kitchen. You could just have a nap or sit back with a cup of tea and relax. Prayers going up!

Oh kades, I know the frustration! I just sent dh out for the day, I couldn't stand being asked what needed to be done. I would tell him and I would get 20 questions.......what's so hard about cleaning a bathroom. lol Fortunately my dd is coming over to help. She knows what needs to be done. I hope things go better for you today. HUGS

Kades I'm so sorry!!! I wish I lived closer....
I even bought 3 bags of cranberries just to stick in the freezer to hoard til next fall when I buy 3 more!!!!
:)
I want nothing more than for a wonderful person to be finished with the pain and sickness.
You, in my book, are the best of the best.

argh my cat just knocked over my favorite bowl... it wasnt valueable it was a bright orange vintage pyrex mixing bowl I really liked... this is the third pet victim of my vintage cookware... which is why I buy cheap... Of course it shattered into a million pieces which I thought I got... swept, vaccumed, mopped and still I just found a big chunk in my dogs mouth... he will chew on ANYTHING!

I have had a weepy day--all my mom wanted to do was sleep during my visit. It is so hard to deal with dementia.
