I'm going to be missing for a while.

I'm under a doctors care for extreme depression. I've been trying to handle it all alone, but it wasn't working. Now I'll have some new meds and the doctor supervising my care. I feel very blessed to have her in my life. She probably saved my life. The last three days have been horrible. I'll chime in now and then, but nothing like I usually do. I've got to get me under control first. I'll miss you all.
It just seems like yesterday that she was eight. Now she's 13 and growing like mad. Here is a pic of her with her dog, Lily.


Happy Birthday, Caarianna.

Happy Birthday, caarianna. May your day and year be filled with much happiness, friendships, love and lots and lots of birthday cake. :)



We're going on vacation starting Saturday.

I love taking trips and relaxing and also seeing some great spots in Arizona. Even though we live in the state, we like to visit places that we've never been. Sam is so looking forward to leaving. We all need a break. Seven days in a two bedroom, two bath condo. It has a full kitchen, laundry room and everything else to make our trip feel like home. Sam is bringing a friend with her, so she has someone her age instead of just us old folk. :) They are both excited for Saturday. I see a lot of pooling and hot tubbing in the week. The girls are like fish, loving to swim. I'm going to take a notebook with me and see if I can maybe write some stories while I'm up there. I've been sort of down in the dumps and lots on my mind, making writing come to a complete halt. I sure hope this plan works. I told the girls that we are going to have carpool Karaoke on the way there and back. I have a Beatles station and they're going to learn the songs if it kills all of us. *grin* Sam already loves some of the Beatles songs, so it shouldn't be a stretch. Now if Rod will just behave, I'll have it made. See you all when we get back. The 16th is going to come flying by too quickly. I can already tell. Have a great week and weekend. I'll be thinking of all of you.

Hugs, Patt

You're my Iron Man.

This is for t_verano. Your post was beautiful to read. You have such spirit and strength, that it's easy to understand why everyone loves you. I don't think you know this, but I'm wild about Iron Man. He shows great strength and spirit also, but it's not real life. So I just wanted you to know that you're my Iron Man from now on. I found these little uplifting quotes and thought I would share them with you. They remind me of you. I'm so glad that we're friends. Always know that everyone here is here for you. If you need to vent, by all means, vent. Good luck with radiation, sweetie. My prayers and good thoughts are with you. And if you need anything, all you have to do is ask. :)



I just heard that Instinct got renewed.

Woot. Grey, did you see that? I'm so happy. My hubby and I love this show. It's a different type of show and I truly love it. It's on Sunday nights and you should watch the older ones on Demand. :) You won't be sorry.

On a sad note, also on Sunday night, Deception got canceled. I'm bummed. I really liked this show. I think they could have done a lot with it.

And what the heck is going on with Fox's Lethal Weapon? They are killing off the main person and bringing in someone new for a new character and renewed it for season 3. What? What are they thinking?

Hugs, Patt

Poor Sam.

Sam, our granddaughter that we're raising felt poorly for about three days. I kept her home. It seemed to be her asthma and I didn't want her disrupting the classrooms with her coughing. Anyhow, that took place on monday and by Thursday, she was really bad. I took her to the doctor and found out from two doctors that she has Whooping Cough. (They did a blood test to be sure, and it was positive.) Even though she was vaccinated, she still got it. They said someone with weak lungs, as with asthma, are prone to get things easier. So she's been home for over two weeks now. Sicker than a dog. Rod and I had to get meds to be sure we didn't get it. She can't leave the house, even though her meds are done, she's still coughing up a storm. The doctor said it might be another three to five weeks before she's strong enough to go back to school. And in the meantime, we have to see a Pediatric Pulmonologist to see if her lungs have been damaged. And then the doctor said Sam probably got it from someone that didn't vaccinate their children. That made me so angry. For a week, I didn't sleep at night because of her wheezing and coughing. It was very scary. Her Birthday party was supposed to be this weekend, but of course we had to call it off. She was so bummed about that. Her school has been so great. They send home the homework on Friday and we do it in four days and then I drop it back off. She won't fail her classes at all. What a relief. Lisa, Duncan's Twin flew into Tucson for a visit the day that we found out about Sam. She had to be medicated also. And what a trooper she has been. She's been entertaining Sam and watching scary movies with her. I won't watch them. *grin* Lisa is a sport. So please keep her in your thoughts. Thanks.

Hugs, Patt

Questions about movies...

Okay, I'm wondering about some movies. Lisa is coming for a visit and we usually see at least two or three movies. Now I just need some ideas.

Has anyone seen The Shape of Water? It sounds good, but I'd rather hear it from someone that saw it.
HOw about The Greatest Showman? Some of these I can get on video soon, so I could rent them.
Next up is Downsizing?
And how about Proud Mary?
The Commuter?
The Post?
Love, Simon
These ones aren't even going to be here until next week.

You Were Never REally Here?

Happy Birthday, Brumeier

Happy Birthday, brumeier. May your day be filled with sunshine, happiness and good health.

Hugs, Patt
