Cute PF, cute. And Addie? It's only funny if you aren't the one going through Healthcare Hell. I finally relaxed when we dropped the check off on Saturday. What a mucked up website it is.

My laughter was at the library remark.

I can understand your frustration. It is kind of like the "No child left behind". Great idea, but the Legislature failed to vote any money for the program. School systems struggled to follow the program. This time they failed to make sure everything was in place and working. And they are still screwing up. They failed to adjust the dates to give them time to make sure the system was in working order.

I really need an encouraging word right now. My sister suffers from Paranoid personality disorder and is on one of tears right now....she thinks mom and I are out to get her, and says hurtful things. I wear my heart on my sleeve...and it's tough. Pardon my french by I really just want to say "Go **** yourself". I'm trying to take the high road...I know we many guests coming tonight that don't have family to have Christmas with...I got to man up and do what I got to do...but it's hard.

/end vent.

(((Hugs))) Keep remembering that it's the disorder talking. Try not to take it personally. I'm sure you will be able to "man up" and handle the get together well.

Mac, because you know her situation, you'll handle it properly. You can find a harmless way to let of steam after it's over. Maybe go wrestle a bear into submission.

Thanks Andy...although I think it will be safer to just have a few drinks. :)

+1. It's a chemical imbalance that affects the brain, just as a physical illness affects the body. I know it's challenging to deal with her, but you can do it

If ya'll don't hear from me for a few decades...it's because I"m in jail for cold blooded murder. She just tore into me for vacuuming.
