Laurie, my DH is from Maple Ridge (Haney) we visit there often. :) hope everything is as you wish at the cemetery.

Has anyone heard from Snip? I was very concerned about her - am hoping she went to the doctor.
Here I am, still have flu but I'm ok thank you
Glad you are feeling better!
Had a few vodkas with my mom on friday (Sometimes listening to mother is not best )
No blood when I cough anymore and the infection seems to be clearing up a bit.
Went to the clinic and got some more meds.
Hope you get well soon

No, I have never had surgery before. The latest word on it now is they want to wait on surgery. The doctors & surgeons had a conference on friday morning. Now, they want to do a CT scan biopsy, then some radiation to try & shrink this mass in my lower left back. Unfortunately they are leaning more towards the possibility of cancer. I so hope they are wrong. It was a real struggle to get through the daughter's concert on friday night. Afterwards she had a sleepover planned with a good friend in town. Dh & I went out & had a few, well way to many, cocktails which is not real common. Just starting to feel better now. It's about time for bed.

Oh SB, hoping and praying for the best. You hang in there, sweetie! You're a strong person, I know you will tackle and defeat whatever it may be. {{{{SB}}}}}

sb, i'll say a decade tonight for you so that everything will be fine.


i wish i didn't have to work tonight. i hate the clock change over. we have to set several master clock systems in the building that control just about everything the network does to a very precise frame accuracy. after setting the clock drivers, we have to test a dozen master control rooms' outputs, and check clocks in various departments to make sure everything jives.

it wouldn't be so bad if i could just go home and sleep in the morning when i get out at 8am, but i have to be at a baseball coach's clinic at 11am, then have tryouts at 1:30pm, and the draft at 4pm, and be back at work by 7pm.

it's gonna be a rough day with no sleep whatsoever.

bt, I commend you for spending so much time with your son. There are a lot of fathers that can't be bothered. Let their mother do it. But has it ever occurred to you to every so often to say "No". I have to work. When Spike was 10 he was in Little League. For some strange reason they always schedueld practice and games at 5 p.m. I finally got sick of him missing family meals and coming home starving. I started to say No" and after a while other mothers joined in. They quickly change the time to 6;30. I later found out the reason for the 5 p.m. time was because the coaches wanted to be home in time for their supper and TV.

no, addie.

see, there ya go.


lol, it's just one day. yesterday's snow storm messed things up so the clinic, tryouts, and draft was compressed into today.

i'll survive. i can always say no to work, but i'm greedy.
