Took me a while to figure it out at first too (ROFLMAO)

Some of the others still takes me a while - but I'm beginning to get the hang of it.

Well it's Friday almost 3:30 - so I'm outta here - Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend - Always remember to be good to YOU - You deserve it.

See ya on Monday,
Rita

Well imagine that. . .I get out of the way and abf calls and asks me if I want to do a meeting tonight AND tomorrow night, hallelujah praise the lord. Will this mean. . .what he could be willing??????? Oh let's don't get ahead of ourselves now. Wonder if he knows it's a meeting and no nookie afterwards, I'm such a b*tch.

What is Edema?? My daughter's friend works in a nursing home. They came over to visit me and she said it looks like that's what I have. I didn't even notice but Steph said my face and everything looks really swollen. Is it dangerous?

Loves, if you mash your finger down like on the top of your foot and hold it there for a minute, does it leave an indention when you move it?

I'm feeling pretty good compared to last night and today. I took a water pill a few minutes ago. I've never had this before except in my last pregnancy. My diet has sucked lately.

After giving it some thought........I let him. He sent me $200 which was no where near what he had taken from me, but it put some food in my frig. and paid part of the light bill. I think I even told him thank you for some reason. I guess because he really could have been a complete scum bag and not send anything.

I'm much like you. I'm very prideful. My sister had offered to send me some money of which I refused. I just couldn't do it. In my mind it was letting him off the hook. But pride isn't always the best thing to have depending on the situation you're in. No.......I never did let her help, but I managed. I made it and for that I was proud.

Try to keep it like a business transaction between you and your AH. If that's possible I mean. It's a mind set and takes practice, but you may at least get what you need from him...........I know you don't want anything, but sometimes......need is a little different IMO.
thats all it is as far as i'm concern, and according to the things he said on his way out the door, its all about the kids. when i went into the hospital, i did have food, he stayed until every can good was gone. i guess he must of lived off kool aid. he even left all the utilities bills for me to pay. i wake up and realize that i've been married to like a "vaga bond", somebody who makes themselves at home in someone else house while they are on vacation or something, in this case, someone who's in the hospital.

yeah i think he owes me, and i'm praying that in getting this divorce, THAT i will get some kind of compensation in the form of allimony, even if its only a few dollars.

anyway, i'm just relaying to you all what he said, we all know what addicts do, so its no guarentee that he'll even show up.

These are usually my lucky days go figure.
If you could spread germs through the computer, I'd apologize, cause you sound exactly like me!!!!!

Teke - Why do you have to meet with him, why can't you just tell him to leave the money in the mailbox or something!?!?

Teke,

I agree w/Never....how about him going to Amscot, getting a free money order, and slapping a 41 cent stamp on an envelope and mailing it to you. Simple, easy and quick...

Loves, next time you are near a pharmacy...go in and check your blood pressure, please.

Teke, I sure wish I had or could find my copy of The Prophet so I could share with you the Truth about giving and receiving. It is so beautifully written,....anyway both are natural in life and in our environment and is important to both. Actually necessary.
You, too, loves.
Friendship is a gift. We accept that. A smile is a gift, shared..a gift to both. Laughter is a gift shared. Love is a great gift and each of us here give love and it improves and pleases us. Money is one of the smallest gifts in many ways. Accept gifts with a thank you and know that both the giver and receiver are blessed by it.


think for a moment of Christmas with your children, who actually enjoys the greater pleasure...it is we, the parents, seeing our children's excitement and joy. They are happy too, of course, but I think the greatest pleasure is felt by the giver. And remembered fondly for far more years.

Live,
The whole text of The Prophet is here: http://www.kahlil.org/prophetpf

I was going to copy the Giving chapter but didn't know what part you wanted to share with Teke

This is the part I personally like:

There are those who give little of the much which they have - and they give it for recognition and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome.

And there are those who have little and give it all.

These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty.

There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.

And there are those who give with pain, and that pain is their baptism.

And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue;

They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space.

Through the hands of such as these God speaks, and from behind their eyes He smiles upon the earth.

Love to everybody
GL

Thank you very much! More than I can say. I want to save that link. I have read from it at funerals and weddings and his eloquence and wisdom never fails to astonish me.
I keep giving away my copies! LOL
