My grandmother would have turned 100 years old today. She passed away this past June.....she almost made it. I miss her something terrible. This will be the first time in over 30 yrs. that I didn't bake a yellow cake with white frosting and coconut. It was her favorite and I always made it for her.

all I have to do today.
have my new cars' stereo re-installed.
get meds for me and mom, ooops, I mean mom and me.
figure out dinner.
no voting, been there done that already.
organize daughters room, get things ordered to go in there.
go to bank and do a secret deposit that hubby will love me for later when he realizes what I put in there.
my family and the things we're going through.
praying for Barb L and Kades as that's always on my mind.
spreading blessings galore to all. except them or don't that's up to the receiver...

today i am thinking about the election and what it means for our beloved country. the direction we will move and hopefully make it better for everyone.

handyman here working on my walk in closet. putting in shelves and painting it. he is not making much progress. sure would like to get all this stuff back in the closet.

worrying about my daughter, she has a lot on her plate right now. the economy has cost her , the two biggest accounts she had. both were car dealers, she had done for over fifteen years. she is fearful she will lose her business entirely. her daughter, my granddaughter is having serious problems in school and at home. she is so concerned about her and trying to get her some counseling

I'm worried about my grandmother who turned 97 in June. She lives in a home with 5 other seniors. They call her the baby. She fell last week and broke her shoulder and bumped her head. Not what she needed. She is not good.
My mother went in for surgery they found a growth on her thyroid. It was originaly going to be an out-patient surgery but it turned into 3 hours and 3 days in the hospital. She is using a walker and her back is killing her.
At least they are both on the mend.
Thanks for listening.
I won't tell you about my ingrown toenail. sheeeesh.

ChefMal, sorry for your family illnesses. Like you say, both on the mend. Now about your ingrown toenail, cut it straight across, not at an angle.
Also, I know this is gonna bug you or even hurt but lifting the side that is turned in a bit and placing the smallest amount of cotton under the corner will force it to grow out. You'll have to do this everyday as with bathing etc. you'll be getting it wet so it won't be affective then but just a tiny piece of cotton every day. Also, one more thing, with a very good steady hand, in the middle of your toenail at the top of the growth, if you were to cut a V << just like that, it would force the toenail to grow from the middle of the toenail together forcing the sides that are ingrown to grow straight instead of into your sides and skin. Hope that makes sense, you can trust this if you can follow, I have two licenses and used to specialize in this in my past life. As with anything, it takes time, patience, continuance, and diligence. (or go see a Podiatrist and see what he/she does) eeeks!
