It says it's no longer available. Does this mean they can't find any more unicorns?

I know you are already gone for your surgery. You are in my prayers and I can't wait til you're back, good as new!

And here I was so concerned with making sure Cat got the fluids into Mama, that I never thought to tell Cat to make sure she was getting hers also. I thought she had more common sense to be taking care of herself also. The urge to put her over my knee right now is so strong.

Water, juices, broth, are the order for the next couple of weeks. Nothing with caffeine. Caffeine is a diuretic and causes loss of fluids.

Lakisha, you are a good friend. The kind everyone should have. Thank you for taking care of our Cat!

Our old coffeemaker was a Hamilton Beach. It served us well for many years so we got another Hamilton Beach. DH is not happy because it takes 11 min to brew instead of the 8 minutes the old one took, but it does 12 cups and I think the old one was only 10 cups. I'm happy....it doesn't leave a puddle on the counter!

Puddles aren't good. Happy coffee making.

I just finished eating two glorious toasted ham and Swiss sandwiches. Just minutes prior I had finished slicing a small ham on my meat slicer. Now to clean it... in a little while...

Cold as crap here and the temp is dropping. Lots of wind, too. Brought the brass monkey in last night and need to give the witch an insulated bra. Brrrrrrr!

At the moment I'm sitting in the living room looking out the front windows at the birds swarming the feeder and the suet cage. I filled the feeder yesterday morning and put a fresh cake of suet out because I knew they'd need fuel today. Both stations are doing a brisk business.

Glad I made more suet yesterday. The three remaining cakes will be put out and eaten by the weekend I'm pretty sure. I think I have enough peanut butter to make 4 more cakes, which I should probably do in anticipation of the approaching cold weather.

Wow, I take 24 hours off and all this happens.

PF, you are probably gone, but I send you hugs and you know you are in my heart and prayers.

Lakisha, it seems there is a lot of prayer needed where you are and you got it! Tell Cat, she is not good for her family if she doesn't look after herself.

Pac, TB uses the TO for just about everything! Glad you are liking it.

I am trying to clean up holiday season 2013 while taking pain breaks. Monkey is making it um, "interesting"? by getting into the decoration boxes, grabbing the ribbons as I try to wind them, and just having pure kitten fun!

I think it's time to quit picking on Cat for trying to be a good daughter. I think she has learned the lesson.

It's only common sense that one must care for the caregiver if one has any experience with this sort of thing. It can be personal experience, seeing it, being told about it, whatever. It's really not that obvious until you know about it. I would probably have made the same mistake at Cat's age. I'll bet that lots of you would too.

The groups that help caregivers are continuously repeating "Care for the caregiver. You can't take care of someone if you don't take care of yourself." They repeat this to middle aged people taking care of their elderly parents. They tell people with a lot more life experience than Cat has.

Now it's time to stop the "Give her a good talking to", "Take her over my knee", etc., etc. Cat will read this thread and understand. She is paying the price. She doesn't need it rubbed in. We should have told her.

/end rant

I bet the new one has that cheater switch in the coffee basket bottom. If it has a spring you can sneak a cup while it's brewing and the drip stops while the pot is off the burner. Himself does that with our pot, then remembers that the coffee is a wee bit stronger when he takes his first sip. :-D
