I took my youngest out to look for a job again this afternoon and Haagen Dazs hired her on the spot. They told her to come in Friday after school at 3:00. I'm so relieved that she found something!
I hope everyone is having a great day. I have to go boil raviolis for dinner, be back later.
Thats great news that she got a job on the spot goodluck to her

gotta call from doc today, all my labs were normal. that's great but that means there's something the labs didn't find. going to rhuematologist (spelling?) on May 22. said they will try to find out if this is Fibromyalgia (spelling?). kinda discouraging, I don't know if it's worse to get a diagnosis from blood work or if it's better to find out later. Just want this over!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well it wood be better to know as then it can be treated. if it turns out to be fibromyalgia( cant spell it either) you know my friends mum has it and yes at times its painful but it can be controlled goodluck

I'm just happy that they are actually looking for a problem this time instead of telling her to just start taking an aspirin everyday.
At least they are looking in to . made keep on there case the lady needs this sorted and some of them caould give a dann. hope your ok

Crossing from one fire truck to the other and making an "A" was a cable from which was flying the American Flag. Very touching. So many police officers, federal government employees, and firefighters formed one group facing the family members. Then two fire trucks entered the cemetary, one being a really old fire truck with their antique bell. On the back platform where the firemen used to ride, was the casket. At the end of the funeral, ten ag pilots flew in "the Missing Man Formation." Reggie's plane was flown by a family member who then turned toward the west away from the rest of the formation. (Wikipedia explained it: The flight approaches from the south, preferably near sundown, and one of the aircraft will suddenly split off to the west, flying into the sunset. In all cases, the aircraft performing the pull-up, split off, or missing from the formation, is honoring the person who has died, and it represents their departure to the heavens.) Kelly was presented with Reggie's captain's helmet. Not many eyes were dry today. Then the interim captain rang the antique fire bell, signifying the "last call." (This was explained on Wikipedia: During each firefighter funeral, there is the ceremony of the "Tolling of the Bell," where bells gong in a succinct and traditional pattern. The bell ceremony is reminiscent of the original firehouse bells that tolled when there was a fire. The actual ceremony is based upon the pattern of the original method of communicating that a firefighter had fallen, which is the telegraph. The telegrapher would tap out the word "fell" with five measured dashes, a pause and then repeated two more times.) As I said earlier--very touching.
Yip seawates what a lovely sent of very touching as you say

So sorry for your loss Seawaters. During the month of December we had 6 funerals to go to. It was overwhelming. Sending hugs your way.
