Appreciate Thoughts

Doesn't that sound nice to bake cookies and drink cocoa? You know how to do it! Really can tell you got love in your house. I am so thankful to hear that you have good man. They are important. You must treat him as good as he is to you? Shame I never found someone who had half the heart your husband does. You know something, all the guys who I dated named Paul were good. Is it something about that name? Even had uncle named Paul who was kind.

Impala I like them! No matter the kind of car you had, can be so thankful wasn't worse. I remember my glasses flying on the dashboard and I didn't know where they were. You won't forget this one. I never did. People try to do too much when they are driving.

This is my first ( and hopefully only) accident!! I didn't like it at all. lol... I've had so many dreams of getting rear ended at stop signs that I always stop far behind the car in front of me. That saved me yesterday, not that I was all the way stopped yet but... close to it.

Yes, I am lucky to have found Paul. He is a wonderful person.
And I do try to treat him as well as he treats me but... I think I've got the best part of the deal. He's so good and smart and caring and so hard working and thoughful and sweet and giving and ...ok, I'll stop.
Never give up ITK it's never too late to find love.

In The Kitchen, sorry to hear that you suffered the same fate as pdswife. These things happen when you least expect them so chin up and look on the bright side of things! Keep yourself well covered and drink lots of green tea and/or herbal teas.

I won't have to go to the store alone for awhile, Paul will have to drive me in the truck, my leg hurts so I can take it easy and sit on the comfy chair and read, it's a good excuse for an extra long nap in the afternoon!!

In your case... long showers, extra warm blankies on the bed, hot soups,
you can bake some cookies and sit reading in front of the stove or buy yourself some expensive cocoa that you normally wouldn't.

oh we have an 2000 Impala. It is big and strong.
Wow, hurt like heck doesn't it? I know had a young woman fly by me going home one day the the minute she got past me she made a u-turn right in fromt of me. With no place to go, except into oncoming traffic I ended up hitting her..The person she was talking to on the cell phone had told her she was going the wrong way so she just turned!! I was lucky as two different people stopped and talk to the police. One was an attorney who was right behind me..Police patted me on the head and said go home and take it easy then that was it. Sore as could be the next several days. All car accidents are horrid and so scary, but at least YOU are not in the hospital and are okay. Rest and take it easy..
hugs,
kadesma

DH was rear-ended by a young lady talking on her cellphone. She didn't put on her brakes either. Luckily he was in his golf car which is quite old. The auto shop said it would take over $1000 to replace his bumper. The girl was a young single mother with red hair and reminded him so much of our grandaughter, he told her to pay him $300 and that would be fine. She had to pay him in 2 payments. Sometimes he surprises me what an old softie he is. I may keep him another 49 years. Today is our anniversary. It's been quite a ride!

This is a vent as well as a boo-hoo . DH and I went appliance shoppping for the better part of yesterday. Our "find" and our only purchase was a Miele double "true" convection oven. The sales lady said this came with all the bells and whistles, both ovens self cleaning, double rotisserie, two probes, concealed elements, glass front, six racks - which five can fit in one oven, blah, blah, blah. DH was sold, he wanted this one, by the end of our trip, I was quite excited too. We don't know much about them but from what we do know, we knew it was a good deal, otherwise we couldn't afford one of these puppies. We bought it with intentions to do a bit more research before delivery next week. The saleslady said we could cancel before delivery if we wanted to. Late that night we were reading the brochure we had on Miele - we were compairing the two models of double ovens they make - what is the difference? The one we have is not self cleaning even though that is what we were told. DH knew it was too good to be true - too good of a deal. This is a luxury item and material things mean nothing, but for a couple hours I thought I was going to have the privelage to own a wonderful oven - ahhh, oh well, there is still the hope that the wrong number was used to scan it - I don't think so, though. Sad day in my house today.
