Hi! Well, you would think that WE were in Mexico the way the restoration of our place after the flood is going, but we are DEFINITELY getting our carpet and the linoleum in our storage room done on Thursday. We are still waiting on whether they will pay for the damage vanities or not before we get our bathrooms done. I am so looking forward to having all my stuff back!

MK, what is a narcotrafficante?

I lost power this morning @ 6:39. No storm, just tons of fog. When I called, the recording said it affected 3960
customers and had something to do with the main something or other. Time was indeterminate for restoration due to fog.
Power came back @ 10:12am. I didn't much mind this time, as it wasn't 90 degrees out and night time, which is usually when this problem happens.

Karen, I'm glad your dinner went well. Did you take pics of your guests and 2 lasagnas?

Hi! QS, Since Karen is not here right now, I hope you don't mind me answering. I believe it is drug traffickers or drug trafficking.

BL. Thanks! . That's scary. Here I'm complaining about speeders and phone user drivers.
And she never did let us know what was happening with any investigation about the dogs in the neighborhood. and her babies

Hi,
hope you all have power now.... I can't really remember a power loss longer than ten minutes... maybe when I was very very young....
Frank is away to Prague today, now I have two days of my own..

Hi! Cara, are you comfortable on your own? Tony is doing a graveyard shift tomorrow night and I am a little anxious about it. I have trouble sleeping when he isn't here!

hi,
Laurie, from time to time I enjoy him being away... we had been together since before christmas and I was aksing him for about one week, when he'll be out over night
I know I'll miss him like hell tonight, but the bigger the joy when he's back on Thursday ;o)

Hi we tend to lose our power here quite often. Especially in the summer time.

Hi! James was away from home 4 days a week for 11 months. I'm glad he is home! I did enjoy my days alone, but not my nights (especially on the nights Cubbie kept barking at every noise he heard--luckily he didn't do that often!). I finally got to the point that I just stayed up all night.

Hi
I miss Debbie a lot when she is away and my already poor sleep gets worse. I'm a bit like Barbara and landed up just staying up later, but still waking up early.
