Thank you all for the kind thoughts and prayers. LEFSElover...I do have an appt. with the podiatrist. I have been trying to deal with these things for a few years now. I just can't seem to take care of it myself. I'm good for a few weeks, then right back to soaking and hurting. I am soooo done. The podiatrist is considering carterizing (spelling?) the toenail to stop the growth. Probably won't look real great but I don't care anymore I just want to be able to put on shoes and walk again.

Barb L and Kades and MM.

our daughters inappropriate ribbing about the events of the last 24 hours.
sons poor decision.
dementia taking over where brilliance used to be and me having a hard time with that.
the doctor apt that too way too many hours today.
hoping I get enough sleep tonight cause tomorrow's coming way too early
my phone and getting messages off of hubby's and on to mine.

My Daddy. Silly, isn't it, since I'm almost 60-years old.

He died when I was in my early 20s. Knew him for such a short while.

Today is the 35th anniversary of his death and, as it turned out, I had to deliver some furniture to a customer in the same town where he is buried. (I know I didn't structure that last sentence correctly, but that's the least of my concerns at the moment.)

At any rate, my customer was delighted with the furniture job and even prepared lunch for me.

After I left her house, I went to the cemetery and had a "talk" and a good cry with Daddy. Told him how much I loved him and how much I missed Buck and that I hoped they were enjoying each other's company in Heaven.

Guess my two most loved men are on my mind right now.

My son, he's having a hard time dealing with the loss of his grandmother who passed away on monday morning. I had to pick him up at school yesterday. His teacher said he came to her class crying. This morning he was crying so I just kept him home. I may do the same tomarrow also. The funeral is monday and I hope it will give him some closure.
And also I'm dreading the funeral due to the fact that there's going to be people there that I simply despise. One of which is a convicted child molester.
I just have to remember the reason I'm there, for my son, my husband and his wonderful mother. Lord give me strength!

Not silly Katie,
I miss my dad each and every day..Not one day goes by that I don't think oh boy dad would, gee dad loved these..He is with me in all I do..I sometimes wake at night dreaming of him and mom..Both are always right on the edge of everything I do.So, your missing your dad to me is as natural as each breath we take.

Oh I'm so sorry about your son..Children take things so hard, he might be a little angry that his gramma left him, he might be afraid of what waits for him, we don't know unless he is willing to talk. If not just be by his side let him know it's okay to cry and that you are there if he needs you..As to people you despise, they don't count,look right through them as if they don't exist..You son, DH and your late mother-in- law. Think only of them.. Hate just eats you up, you don't need that.You all will be in my thoughts and prayers..Take care, love each other.

My border. He is in the final month of his appliance repair course and trying to decide what to do after - go home to Quebec where he will have to rewrite a couple of tickets or work here for a year to get some experience (but he misses his family). I would love for him to stay on with us, but know that he has to do what is right for him.

And my hubby who has a very important job interview tomorrow morning and in preparation is having to study both to upgrade his first aid and get his license for large passenger vehicles. He really wants this job and yet doesn't want to prepare to much and get his hopes too high.

My "two men" have a lot on THEIR minds right now so it is only natural that they are on mine.
