That problem has been solved by NASA working with the inventors of the pen that can write in any position. No pets were hurt in the demonstrations of the NASA-patented and Forrest Gump-invented product under the name "The Stuff Doesn't Hit the Fan."

Sid (as Mr. Schneider) owns a building which Mrs. Mutterance leases and has turned in to a candy shop. (She doesn't "make fudge; never has; never will.") Mr. Schneider wants to turn the store into a new enterprise, a "washeteria." During a snow storm, Mr. Schneider falls into an open grave, and the kids come to the rescue. Cute, cute movie. One line is something my mother would often say to us, "The smell of snow is in your hair." You really have to see it more than once!!!!!!

Because you need to build up some equity first?

In case you're wondering why I'm on at this unusual hour ... Can't sleep. Mr. was finally released from the office and will be home soon. That will help. Been wanting to sleep all day and now I can't. I'm going to be in awful shape in the morning.

Today is my Mama's 77th birthday!!! We decided to have her a dinner here @ my house on Sunday. she has to go to a funeral for her aunt, who was in her late 90's, tomorrow & Saturday in North Carolina. She's staying w/ my aunt over night Friday. Anyhoo, Sunday it is!
I gotta tell y'all, I'm really beginning to like this bit...not working. I can say my pain is much less. I have time to do what needs to be done here @ home w/out hurting as much. I miss everyone but still it's nice to not have to find someone to pick my daughter up @ school, I can take my time & cook better meals for my family, & not to mention, my house is getting thoroughly cleaned, YAAY!
try to be back in a bit!
A BIG happy birthday to your mum

And yes the stayin gat home bit can have it advanages lol glad your not hurting as much

So basically she was starting to have a stroke, but the clot in her brain broke up before it got bad enough to do any permanent damage. So it didn't show up on the MRI.
At the end of the day, they started her on a anti-clotting drug and sent her home. She is supposed to go see the neurologist in a week but she really doesn't like him. So she is going to call her family doctor and see if they can get her in some where else.
The other good news is that the MRA of the veins in her neck and the Echo Cardiogram of her heart were clean. So with are family history of heart disease and heart attacks. That is a good to know.
Well at least they are looking for something. and good to hear shes home
Made i was learned that ta,s are mini stokes but effects dont last. just maybe the eyes wood be a bit dilated or a glazed over look
What about her face is it back to normal now. the blood thinning tabs should do the trick..
And again good that her heart and veins am sure they checked the arteries as well are in good shape.

News from our house. I went to the door to open it and get a package. I happened to glance down at the floor, and in the corner there was a dead bat. We have no idea how it got there, but we have a STRONG feeling that the cat brought it in as a gift to us. She has been known to do that in years past, each time the animal control officer telling us that the cat probably did not actually "catch" the bats but probably found it. Right about the fifth time, animal control accepted the fact that our cat probably DID catch the bats. She had a habit of somehow getting onto our roof, and we think she swatted them and "caught" them after she stunned them. Anyway, the officer today did not even look at the bat (Hubby had put it into the trash can out back) and said the trash was the best place for it. Since we have had cases of West Nile virus in our area each year for several years, I am always cautious, especially because of the deaths of several people with West Nile virus and the death of a young man (a 20-something "kid") from the bite of a rabid bat; and I take the threat of bats very seriously. Also, after having gone through chemo and radiation within the past several months, I am cautious of ANY illness or threat of germs and/or viruses due to my lowered immune system. I was inside the house working on my stuff and the officer left without the bat. He had told Hubby that the county was "out of money" and could not afford the testing ($50) that would need to be done to find out about the bat. I explained to Hubby about my concerns and told him I would pay the $50 to give myself peace of mind. I called the officer and told him I wanted the bat tested, period. He came back to get the bat and tried to tell me that the virus of a rabid bat (normally) dies almost immediately upon contact with air. I checked online and found out that the virus can still be alive inside the bat and in his/her saliva. I did not want to take any chances whatsoever! I wonder what the officer would have done if he had small children and had found a bat in his house. Would he want it tested? I think he would, actually! One of the things that got me, I think, was his attitude, what I call the "Now, now, little lady" attitude. I was ticked off, especially since he put on gloves to pick up the bat after having told us there was nothing to be afraid of, that any virus would have already been dead!!! Anyway, I have to calm down. Do you think I am overreacting?
No you are not overreacting at all. i wood be at the same thing myself. maybe worst
You have to think of yourself girl. cant understand why he wood not test it. dont really know how long they wood have before the saliva wood dry up after death. and am sure these ones are not that quick at doing things. i know its annoying hope you have clamed down a bit now ~}}

My foot that I ruptured the ligament in last year is swollen and very much in pain tonight, it's the first time I have felt any pain in it since November/December sometime. I get very nervous about that now, since I couldn't do much of anything for 6 weeks last year, I probably just over did it today. My Bruins won, Red Sox won, and I am happy with who the Bengals drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft.
Tomorrow I will be firing up the grill for the first time in 2013, I can already taste the steak.
Good night my dear friends.
Guess you have overdone it a bit yesterday. hopfully its feels better today or with a bit of REST it will come ok ~}
Like the grill/steak idea some chance of that over here
