The cowboys?
Are we talking an entire football team or just 1 lucky cowboy??
Maybe.........but I'll know more in a few days if it's just that womanly thing that blesses us once a month.

Loves, it could be so many things that are bringing you down or just a combination of many things. You missing Noah, being back home, knowing you will be leaving again, being around your daughters but to know the time is limited, trying to make everyone happy, or not succeeding and they are putting to much pressure on you, grandbaby is coming but you will leave soon after.... all those things could just be going round and round in your head... of course you would feel sad. Try to just live for today and put everything and I mean everything on the back burner.

loves, i'm about to try the chocolate therapy too, i'm really dragging today.

palm, glad to hear they made it safe and sound. europe sounds exciting to me too.

jewelz - i didn't know you were in nyc - its funny cuz when i used to live outside allentown, pa - going into nyc for shopping was my therapy. of course now i'm way to broke for that - but once upon a time i used go alot. i love it there.

Actually Jewelz.............I have some major decisions to make........and I don't know that I can be apart from my kids. My oldest daughter and I have gotten closer than ever and my youngest really needs me. I'm torn in half, but my children will always come first and Noah does understand. He may not like it and doesn't have to, but he does understand. They don't make guys like him very often..........and I'm really a mess. I don't want to have to live without any of them.............but I can't have it all this time...................and it sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think chocolate therapy got me in trouble on my waist line and thighs...

I was birn and raised here in nyc but in my heart I always felt like I was supposed to live on land, with flowers, trees, animals, and peace. Nyc is such the opposite.

jewelz-and i'm the opposite, was raised in the suburbs with all the trees etc, but love the city - although not sure that i could actually live there. yeah, the chocolate is getting me in trouble too, but who do i have to impress?!

loves-i'm sorry your feeling crappy - i too have some big decisions to make and i agree it SUCKS!! especially when you're torn between family members - cuz i am too. i think if we step back (as much as we can) the right answer will come to us. lets just hope that its sooner rather than later! when is the lil man due again??

Oh Loves I felt your pain in my heart just now. Like you said yourself your kids needs you, your oldest because now she will be a mom and will need to turn to you with so many questions and finally understanding, and your little girl is at age of cross roads and I believe needs you to help guide her with her dad. But remember dont let anyone make you feel down or make you feel you are not doing enough. You are only one person, who must remember to put your needs first.

Hugs,
jewel

Sigh.................at least there's still all those cowboys huh??
I suppose stepping back and maybe turning the ole noggin off once and a while could prove to be beneficial. Noah can't move here because of his home and career. So, essentially.............I have to give something up and it's not as easy as drawing straws or tossing a coin. I'm sad.

Loves, the day I went into labor with Michael when I first went to the hospital I was only 2cm dilated.... they sent me home... I was pissed but within a few hours I was 5cm dilated. So really how many cn doesnt mean much she could have her little baby any day now, any moment that phone could come. I cant wait to see pictures of your little one.

I know.........I'm so excited......and scared at the same time. My baby is having a baby.........know what I mean?? She was crying the other day because medicade keeps jerking her around and she has no coverage yet. She just got a bill for $500 and that's just the beginning. I swear..............this state sucks. She needs coverage BEFORE the baby is due.

Medicaid will pick up after baby born up to 3 months back, thats how Fla works, it will be okay.
Also with my first child I was 3 cm dilated at 8 months. 14 days after my due date. I still was and no baby, in and out of labor. They finally induced, you never know with those things.
Gotta catch up what I missed today now

Itis, that would be awesome if you came down here. There seem to be lots of vacation homes. Let me know.

There were no bears at the zoo or tigers. There were leopards, monkeys, turtles elephants. This was a small zoo. We are gonna buy an anual pass and go to some an hour a way for free, ...someday. Having problems getting pics loaded and only some are on digital and others have to be dropped off and then will be on digital, so give me a day or two.

Hi to each of you!

Wow, what a day! FIVE houses. Four is just right, 5 is a bit much. And we got hung up on our schedule because Edie is a wonderfully compassionate lady, so this one man just lost his wife and we lost over an hour doing his laundry for him. Apparently his wife used to iron his t-shirts and everthing but I told Edie I am not ironing. The laundromat provides laundry and ironing services. Real waste of time for 2 of us to stand around the washer and dryer when we have everything else done so I went outside phoned my dad and had a nice long talk with him. I know, I know, it was a really nice thing to do for him, but we also had 3 more houses to go. Plus she also has a full time pet sitting service and we stop along the route to walk dogs, feed cats, give them medicines, whatever.

But, GLORY, my headache did not come back. My back is tired, so I am laid back in the lounger on the ice pack and just really tired. I brought take-out home for dinner. Try to be a wife today!

Hubby has been and is very ill. That's a topic for another day.

The good thing about my job is that it is task oriented and I don't have time to think.
It's all about just getting it done.
But no, I don't feel like doing any housework when I get home. Yet, after cleaning others' homes I don't want to come home to a mess either. That's discouraging!

Blues, I got a chuckle at your list. Years ago I switched methods. I stopped writing down that long list of things to do and instead when I do something I write it down and check it off, hanging on the frig. LOL

Loves, what a dilemna! I have alot of questions but will hold them for now.

$1200 for a water pump?! That is outrageous!

And for all you vactioners....I hope you all have the very best time!

Right now I don't think I could be convinced to go ANYWHERE, but someday I want to see the Bay of Fundy.
I am lying. If I had the money I would go back to Argentina, I didn't want to come back to the States before.
Better if I take that Spanish class first tho'.

Ah, as much as I would love it, I think we will pursue more practical dreams.

I can't believe how late it is all ready. I ate at the restaurant with Edie and her somtimes bf before I brought home dinner.
So I get home in time to go to bed.

Oh well, I didn't schedule any extras for Sat....so I have the weekend only a day away! Hope tomorrow goes fast!
I may spend Sat lollygagging around with a cheap thriller book. Sounds really good right now!

Sorry this is so long, I am just trying to unwind. I go from running at as fast a pace as we can to, whew, it's over. But it takes a bit for my mind and body to slow down and get peace.

Hats off to each of you that come home and take care of children. I did it when I was younger but can't imagine being able to do all of that these days.

hugs,
live
