And if you forget to put the pot back, the basket overflows. If you forget to put the lid on the pot, the basket overflows. I'm sure you can guess how I know this.

Cat slept straight through until around 4:30 this afternoon. We can understand the bronchitis but we can't understand dehydration. She was always pouring water and juice into her and she seemed to be drinking just as much if not more liquids as we were.

But she confused "rest" with "sleep." She wasn't sleeping at all and when you're sick you body has got to have lots of sleep so it can heal. We explained this to her and now she gets it. Maybe it was a language misunderstanding, because even tho her English is lots better, she still trips over words sometimes. She's been back there on her Nook watching her Mamma instead of sleeping.

Her fever's down a little too, but she's gone back to bed. Her Mamma's getting better and so are we. Cat can't stay up long and so I'll show her your messages and thoughts to her later. Thanks for thinking of her. I hope you all have a good night, and Cat 'll be back sometime soon.

What's a TO? Toaster oven?

Taxy, I didn't quote you here but this is about your care for the caregiver rant.

I totally agree with you and I was one of the ones who said it, plus you and many others that have known me for awhile here know I lived it for many years with my Dad (so I should have known better than to tell it to Cat).

Wow, I think I will go catch my breath after THAT run-on sentence! Thanks for your gentle reminder.

I also send gentle encouraging hugs to Cat and all her family and friends.

Lakisha, you can be taking in fluids, but without enough rest and a fever, you can still become dehydrated. She'll start getting better now that she is getting the sleep she needs and deserves.

And yes, TO is a toaster oven.

I'm making cookies for the guys at the Belmont Garage. My mom's brother died, and they needed to travel to Memphis for the funeral. She took the car in for service, and those wonderful people didn't charge her a dime. Total bill due $0.00. We were really low on money after Christmas, so that was really nice. It meant a whole lot! So I'm making those guys a big batch of my chocolate/chocolate chip cookies as a small thank you.

Mac, I think you should change your name to the "Awesome Cookie Guy!"

Seriously, that's very nice of you. It was nice of them, but many people wouldn't repay in any form and I am sure garage guys would never turn down cookies!

My Dad used to say"it's nice to be nice". I even use that as one of my signatures. You seem to think a lot like that. It's not a bad way to treat people. ;-)

What a lovely way to say thank you Mac.

I couldn't get warm. And I couldn't get my apartment warm. I just kept pushing the thermostat higher and higher. I knew what the problem was, I just didn't have a way of correcting it. Finally Spike noticed that in this storm, you could feel the wind coming right from the windows. So for the first time in seven years, my two big windows are closed tightly. Problem solved.

I am so sick of hearing about this storm. This is not the first storm Boston has ever had. Nor'easters are nothing new for this part of the country.

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!
It says they will have more on the 3rd of March. Have to wait for Unicorn season. LOL!!
