I hope and pray he will be better and out of pain very soon!!!

Kades you can get the book on Amazon.If anything else its an interesting read it even shows you how to deliver a baby.
Thanks jp,
I do want to get that book, so I'll go see amazon..Thanks. I kind of think I wasn't to diplomatic yesterday, but I was as stubborn as a mule. Does that count?

Being stubborn is great just think if he had to go thru all last night and today before he got his medicine.I would complain to the head of the doctors about the office girls alot of the time the docs have no clue what they are up to.
When you get the book let me know what you think.

It's so funny.... our condo isn't quite finished so we're staying in another condo down the road for a few days. Maid service has been spotty at best. No new towels... haven't swept.. made the bed but... I don't think they changed the sheets, table sticky, things like that. Today, I stuck around while the maid was here... what a difference. They swept and washed the floor, cleaned the toilets, wiped down all the surfaces and gave me tooooo many new clean towels.

I guess my vent is.... why don't people do their jobs correctly?
Do they think that I can't tell a dirty towel from a clean one? I wiped up some coffee with one yesterday and they folded it up but put it on he counter.... sigh...

lol.... not much of a vent I guess.

smiles, T

roflmao, we had hired a cook/housekeeper when we visited. One evening we were served liver and I immediately spit it out in my napkin. I never thought we'd have to discuss dinner since I assumed (I know...azz u me) that Mexican food would be served.

Hey this has NOTHING to do w/Mexicans...it's just when help is hired for a week or so, some of them don't give a rat's behind.

Well, the next time we had her make dinner, I unfolded my napkin and the liver I'd spit out was still there. LOL, she hadn't even bothered to shake out the napkin before it was refolded.

(((Kades))) I'm just reading this now- The poor little guy and his "Ma". Dennis used to suffer from ear infections all the time when he was little I unfortunately remember his younger years as one big scream. He was prone to them due to a deformed eustachian tube but, I know the poor kids suffer so with the pain and when you have hard hearted imbeciles(can I say imbeciles can I even spell it correctly???) who aren't feeling that pain or care to know that a child is in pain- well don't get me started!!!!!I sure hope the worst is behind him and every one will be able to have a Happy Easter!Carson sure is lucky to have a stand up for him grandma!!!!!Love and energy, Vicki

I just remembered when I worked I worked in surgery at a hospital in Colorado all I did was clean equipment etc but we would get alot of Native American kids in to the surgery department to get Tympanoplasties spelled wrong Im sure which was getting a graft over the ear drum to cover a hole that was caused by letting an ear infection go too long.Nothing the parents did wrong but just not having the means to fix it in the first place.
You should have seen these kids they where so stoic and never cried or showed any fear.

Hi Vicki,
Carson was up at 7 demanding pbandj for breakfast He is much better today, no more pain, but he tires out pretty fast. His mom took today off so he is one happy camper right now. Me, I didn't realize just how keyed up I was til I tried to sleep last night. At 3 this morning I finally was able to relax after some hot tea and just sitting in the dark looking outside...I had the day to myself as DH had to work so I just got things done for sunday and made Alix's bar cookies again this time with chocolate chips, and the short cakes for sunday...Got cooies cut and shortcakes bagged and in freezer, did some planting around my fish pond and then just had some ice tea and sat outside..I know I'll sleep well tonight. Have a wonderful Easter with your family and thanks for thinking of us..

OH those poor babies,and their poor parents. It's had to understand a world where some have so very much in life and other so little,but one day maybe, people will realize and some change will come about..

I understand Carson being so tired and you, it took alot of energy to deal with so much pain now that it is gone and he is feeling good you and him can finally can can get back the energy you need to feel normal again sometimes all you need is a good sleep its needed to get back to how he he and you used to feel because these things are so incredibly draining and now it feels soo good to to finally get a really good nights sleep.

Alix,
I hate refilling bobbins. You can buy pre-threaded bobbins at wal-mart or any place they sell thread usually. They cost about $1.82, you get like 16 in a pack, usually black and white. You can't usually put as much on w/ your machine as comes pre-threaded, which means you don't have to stop as often and when you do have to stop you just pop one on from the pack and not wreck your sewing flow. I love them!
I have no vent, I am pretty happy today! But w/ the holiday this weekend, I'm sure I can feel one coming on soon. Happy Easter to those who celebrate it;)

My youngest boy moved to some apartments in another city. They are old, but, decent. Well, I thought they were until my son called me yesterday and told me that someone broke into his truck!!!!! I am so MAD!! The momma in me wants to go find the little jerk and beat the crud out of him!! Why is it we work hard for even the little things and some punk comes up without any feelings and steals what they refuse to work for?? Thankfully, they weren't able to get his subs out. They are pretty much built into the truck, but, they got his ipod nano and a soft pellet gun. There goes $200 worth of things that he doesn't have the money to replace now!! AND had to pay to fix the window that they busted out!!
Too many people on this earth that are too freaking lazy to work and get their own things! ARGH!!!

ok...this is petty, I know. I don't get frustrated often - BUT. I live out in the sticks. The only way for me to shop is online. Usually all goes well...I splurged and bought a necklace and a pair of earrings to match. The necklace is great. The earrings? Well, I could see they were broken before I even opened the package. So I returned them for a replacement. The 2nd pair came - one earring hung backwards! So...I returned them with a note. Tonight I got a phone call from the company. "What is wrong with the earrings?" I explained. She said, "I don't understand." I explained AGAIN. I had filled out their form for a replacement. She asked if I want a credit?!! No, I'd like a replacement...hmmmmmm. Should it be so difficult?

Callie,
Yup, it's like talking to a rock! The same thing happened to me with a Christmas present for one of the boys..Ordered the oldest boy 3 different types of bacon and two types of sausages, got the box, 3 kinds of sausage and a ham!!! I call, okay, send it back, I send it back, they send me the same darn box I just returned!!! So I call, tell them exactly what I want, and they do send the right thing, only now they want me to pay for two orders of 3 bacon and 2 sausages plus a ham I returned!!! ARGGGGHhhhhh..Poor woman still can't hear Needless to say, no more from that place..They are done,.
