    Lotsnscared I ditto everything mommy said. You are in real good support. You will have age on your side at 25 and that can sometimes help in the big picture. Just stay the course by not taking and this will be over soon enough although it will seem as if time is standing still. Do you have items from the Thomas Receipe make sure you keep the fluids going plenty of water and gatoraide .

    I have gone back reading post to catch up and I have to say seeing a friendship form to what will surely be a never ending bond between you two (sadmommy and sunshine) is truly awsome.Its easy to form a picture of you helping each other walk when the other gets weak.The strength and up beat attitude during such a struggle is inspiring to many.Pure awesomeness

    Thank you for the post. It was so appreciated. Mommy is very special to me. I count on her even if it just a few words on a screen. It is a good thing that not only do we have support thru each other but we are helping others out.

    Thank you again for the post!!

    To borrow a davep quote from one of Sunshine's recent threads:
    "Some people come into our lives and Quickly Go. Some people stay for awhile, and move our souls to dance. They awaken Us to a new understanding, leave footprints on our Hearts, and we are never, Ever the same!!"

    When I read this, I think about Sunshine. Giving me a reason, besides myself, to keep this battle going, even through the darkest times. No question, she is one of the people that FATE meant to come into my life at the perfect time, and move my soul to dance. There is a reason you came to this board when you did, just as there is a reason for the timing of my CT arrival, which paired up with the end of Sunshine's taper. The bonds here my be only in cyber space, but they are REAL. And I have to stay the course..... because that's the only way to keep the bonds I have grown to depend upon so very much. True strength through love for a "stranger". It is crazy, but very very real. I heart my Sunshine, my only real BFF

    That was a beautiful post Mommy. I hope you have a great day today. I hope you have power! Geez. The whole country seems to have a weather related story. Stay warm, I'm sure you will not be teaching again today the way it sounds. Enjoy your time. Thanks for all of your encouragement.

    Good morning mommy. I woke up at 4 but fell back asleep so a little late on this board today. Even when I woke up in the night I was thinking about you hoping you had electricity so you could stay warm. About to hit the project will check back in later. Xoxoxo

    Where r u? Did power go out? I know you are home today.... Stalking you. I have to continue the project as I am running iit of time but this whole thing is getting to me mentally. No motivation today can't get things done when I feel pressure. Nothing done today except one toilet cleaned.....that's because a male in the house had an aiming issue. I need my walk but it's too cold.

    I have mostly been posting on yours today! I guess not giving my own thread enough love made me look lost. I'm here! I'm here! No pill party to relieve the cabin fever!

    I had to LOL at the male with an aiming issue. Why is it so hard? The bowl is HUGE in comparison to the >>>>>>! I have never understood the difficulty. For obvious reasons, I guess.

    Your the best mommy. Had my moment earlier but finally just got out of the house and got thru it. Still don't understand the anxiety posted on my thread about it. You write so well and you always know what to say. I don't know where iwant2help came from...he is all over this board helping others which is great!!!!! Its hard for me to help some as I have to feel connected and then I also like to follow thru and continue support and can't keep up with everyone. But thats ok if we all pay it forward there are enough of us. I think i posted on his as well but sometimes when you post before me....I just want to say yea thats my bff so everything she said I ditto that......no....but I do try even though it can be hard to type after you and I mean that as a good compliment. I heart you!!! Are the schools open tomorrow? xoxoxoxo

    I feel what you're feeling one hundred percent. Usually during the weekdays, you're the one posting all over with sun beams giving support to the new folks, while I havta be at work. We are a team! I cover when u can't, you cover when I can't! We have too many people following us now, time to dig, dig, dig

    Not sure yet about schools tomorrow. Local schools are open. But our college has several campuses, some farther north, so only open if all campuses are safe to open. My gut feeling is yes, we will be going. It's not so bad on roads hubby said.,

    Sometimes I will read a few of the things you post to hubby. Only the funny stuff or like the science conversation or the scholarships. He did not understand the braid thing. So I am going to tell him about the dig dig dig thing. He should get a real kick out of it. The funny part is that he has given me strict instructions to leave him out of my post. Not aloud to speak about "our stuff" or "him"......yea right hubby.......whatever.......

    Never have you been anything but positive about your hubby! Sometimes they may get on our last, thinnest nerve possible , but it seems they both care very much for our wellness and happiness in general. Yes, he should get a kick out of the fact the all of us now chant.... dig, dig, dig... on the days we can't find the drive and motivation to keep going. He has inspired us!,how about that!!

    I like to post to others when I feel I have enough positivity to be beneficial. Sometimes, I imagine I start to sound like dave, and that makes be swell up like a lion. I hear myself writing things to others that the experts & clean folks initially write to me. That makes me feel really, really good. Bc I remember when just seeing a response from someone on this thread made me feel hopeful.... like someone, anyone, could understand.Now I know that thousands of people understand! and honestly, it makes me feel better to give some of that advice back to new comers than it does to do just about anything else. I feel for those in wds so very much, touches me deep bc I remember all too well what I felt like.... dying and hopeless just about sums it up. Then people like you and dave came along, and made the journey a bit more bearable. Just trying to be one of "those" influences whenever I can.

    I heart you, always, thru good days and bad ones. I hope you sleep restful tonight. School tomorrow, but I'll pop in every chance I get, as usual! xoxoxox ((((HUG)))))

    Good mornong mommy. Have a good day!! Sending good vibes. I know when my husband says dig dig dig which I swear is like the only thing he says during games...mostly he is quiet with allot of hand movements telling the kids to stay, advance., back up...etc. So now I can see me getting a big smile on my face everytime he says that. Hopefully they make it to base or I will have to hurry and switch off that big smile!! Big hugs your way!!!

    I can see you now just smiling in the bleachers every time he says it..... come on spring and ball season! I am glad hubby took off to help finish up the project. I bet it will be a huge weight lifted once this project is finished and done. I can't imagine it hanging over your head for so long. Just think.... a few more days andit will be done, right? Didn't you say had to be done by saturday?

    I wish mommy. I feel like if I could get it done then it would be a huge weight lifted even if I could see some light. That goal is the shopping goal then we have to turn the receipts in and match every item on each receipt to a list of 2000. The insurance company won't even give me there report on excel....I am on the old system. They need to put me in the new system..... I had to dig dig dig today. All my will power today. I got no shopping nothing done today. It is so cold and we had some snow flurries. Not that the roads were not ok but its so cold and no sun except Tiger sent a sunbeam and I got it so for about 5 mins....that was it.... xoxoxo

    Sunshine - I did not know or understand what you were going through with your insurance company. I am really sorry you are going through this. I will tell you, do not back down for one cent with the insurance company. Be strong like you are with all of us. You know you have our full support and hope that you will get this wrapped up very soon. I cannot even imagine. Hang in there.

    Yes we had a fire almost two years ago. Dealing with everything about it is a nightmare I just want to wash my hands of it all. This whole thing has beat me up. I survived the Fire but then it was the rebuild that did me in.....dig dig dig. I am trying. So glad this day is almost over!!!

    I know a day of gloomy cold weather makes everything so much harder.It is just too cold for me to want to do much of anything except what is absolutely essential. I would much rather put off the things that cause me anxiety, and just ignore it. I think that is part of what the pills helped me with.... putting off things I didn;t want to deal with, no matter how big or small. I sure hope that having hubby around these next 2 days will lessen your stress about it, and get this done once and for all. Sun came out here today.... didn't melt much of anything... freezing cold still, but maybe thatmeans you will have sunny skies tomorrow.
