    hey everyone!

    jingle, i'm sorry something has happened to someone in your family. i hope you have found out if there is anything you can do. sometimes there is nothing you can do and you have to let it go.

    i've been tracking plane fares for a little vacation to florida to catch some sun and warmth and to get out of my muddy backyard. i'm planning to go around mid-february. about 12 years ago, there used to be this handy guide that would tell you if ticket prices were stable or if they were going up or down. i used to book a flight for my daughter to come home for Christmas. then she started doing it. now that handy guide is gone and you have to check ticket prices twice a day in hopes of finding a deal. now some airlines charge baggage fees for your departing and returning flights! thay also charge a small fee for letting you choose your seat if you want to sit next to someone you know or your family. really. used to be airlines would be accomodating to those things, now they're just finding ways to take your money. but, we did find a deal and i'm happy with it.

    hope y'all are feeling okay and waiting for some nice weather in spring!

    thank you for sharing and caring,
    jeannie

    well I'm back. Jeannie I did what you suggested and hand to god I could only come up with five days something good happened and a couple of days I had to stretch. The highlight of my weeks is going to a couple of clubs I have joined and made so many new friends. I have more friends, people who would do just about anything for me, than I have ever had. I am thankful for that.

    Still smoking but I think I am going to work on that after my son has moved out. Now is not the time. My house is a disaster I am waiting on that for a thorough cleaning also.

    Jared's birthday is today. I'm so broke I don't know what I'm going to do. His dad has been keeping me in money and food and supplies. He's been wonderful. I've gotten over him. Was a time I didn't think I would but in the back of my mind I knew I was over him. I look so forward to being alone. At the rate J is going I don't know if that will happen.

    J got recommended for truancy court again. He is just not going. I could take him out if things get too stressful but he can't ged until he is eighteen which sucks.. Starting Monday they will be watching him and he has regular visits to the court, I feel like I'm being punishesd. In a way I guess I am, after all I am his mother. But Monday he has promised to follow his 504 but he has to go.

    I am in constant pain but thanks to a MMJ tincture I found I can take a dropper full every 4-6 hours and it keeps it at a low level, no high. MY primary actually wrote me for pain meds but I am saving those for those level 10 days or moments. Kind of hoarding them for those days when I really need them.

    Will be seeing a new back specialist, hoping to find what is causing nerve damage. I looked up to see if it was possible to get nerve damage from getting back injections and chances are very slim. All I know is I hurt and I'm sick of it.

    cj's mom still my pseudo exMIL just found out that her spine is crumbling around the cage in her back and in the back of her neck. Nothing they can do for her except make her comfortable. They recommended MMJ to her to try some different things. I'm heartbroken. Jareds grandpa just died, his grandma is gone, my mom. I have this visceral need to make sure that he knows his family. I don't want him to feel as disconnected as I feel. I rarely see or hear from my brothers, we did go camping at my cousins up north. Twice last year. Once with my brothers family. It was great. My family, a force to be reckoned with when we are together.

    cj's family has made it quite clear that I am not to be let go so easily just because we aren't together. So I am close to them. Jared needs to be kept in contact with them.

    I have been to four funerals this year three family one close friend. There are two more that I didn't make it to. Not real promising lol.

    I think I broke my right pinky toe kicking my exercise machine in the night during a bathroom trip. It's way at getting back at me by reminding me it's there.

    for those of you that enjoy getting snail mail still or a card. PM me your addy and I'll write to you. I lost all of the addy I had from here. Jeannie I have yours and Julia I have yours but everyone else's has disappeared. Pm me we can write.

    Love all yous, talk to you soon

    so gad to see some people have been here,lol. always makes me smile to know that folks still check in. Jeannie I hope you get that trip to FL and enjoy nice weather the whole time.

    and Christina so glad that jared's family still let you know visits are welcome and especially letting you know that they still care for you. awesome. I kinda think of you as someone easily loved and glad to see others feel the same way.
    you will enjoy being alson with your youngest and i'm hoping it will be better for him as well. I know how grown-up my granddaughter seems (at 17) but seems is all it is. truthfully she still is a kid at eart struggling to grow up. darned glad I do not have to go through all that again myself, llol

    well gotta get up and get busy the sun is shining and i want to look out of my windows and enjoy the scenery for awhile. take care all

    some days all we can do is stretch. i have a very easy gratitude for days when things aren't going well. i say, "i still have the capacity to love." and that's all that matters some days. a person cannot share a block of years with one person and not care for them after they are gone. caring or loving someone doesn't mean you can live with them, it just means you can recognize that at the time, yes you loved this person.

    yes, joy, i will go to florida! we got a good deal and i'm happy. i wish i could spent maybe one or 2 days more, but i have my dogs to take care of. my son will watch the dogs on the weekend and then my daughter will pick them up and take them to her house for 2 and a half days. so you see how many hoops i have to jump through just to get a little break.

    i am helping my bf wash the walls and doing some other cleaning in his house. he wants to put it up for sale in the spring, but he lacks impetus to get moving. so i cleaned out 2 rooms for him and washed walls and he's going to shampoo his carpeting . it seems if i'm there working with him, he cankeep on track. i know some men hate to clean, but you have to do it.

    joy! it's so nice to hear from you. i miss julia and i am afraid she is not doing very well (i don't know for sure, but i suspect). all this nostalgia for days gone by when we were a vibrant forum here and in the alzheimer's forum where all of you popped in regularly or when you could. i will never forget the support i received and i do not regret one word i said because it came from my heart. this is why i think this forum is so important. you are connecting with people you know, who know your probs, who care enough to write you encouraging words. you can't do this on facebook like you can here. there is no pressure to keep up appearances or pretense of things beig better than they are. you can just vent here and no one thinksyou a worse person because we have all been in your shoes or in similar shoes at one time.

    chris, you can't drag your son to school. perhaps if you show them his test scores or letters from his teachers that he is an exceptional student, he will get a bit more leniency, i dunno. but, you are not a bad mom!

    and i always thank y'all for sharing your world and caring about mine,
    jeannie

    Jeannie shortcake has been told by his principal and the others in the school staff how smart he is, how capable he is that he is genius material and I think a lot of it has gone to his head. As of last Thursday the truancy court is becoming involved again we had a meet with his favorite principal and biggest fan and he wants J to understand that there are consequences but we did this in 8th grade of school and because of his medical they threw it out. His dad and I have a couple tricks up our sleeve that I should have allowed to be used. His phone, his PS4, and his puter. So we will see how this semester goes. His last chance this year to save some credits.

    We spent the first part of this semester doing a bowel clean out using Mirilax. Things were pretty bad with his enco. All bound up and fist sized feces trying to come out at once. His belly has even gone down. Go see the gastro again on Monday.

    Brennifer and fam are still here. They are collecting boxes for moving lol. It makes me laugh for some reason. Like they are putting on a show, it strikes me that way. I am heartbroken that their cat disappeared. I pray that someone took her in and that she didn't get taken on by a raccoon or coyote. She was just a slip of a thing. I keep picturing her injured in the woods in the cold. Brings tears to my eyes.

    I joined two social clubs. I have made so many friends. Good friends. Do just about anything for ya type of people. I love it. I try to get out at least twice a week. Some would approve some wouldn't don't much care.

    I forgot, my partial was approved, that was in there Jeannie and I didn't even think of it. I get molded on the 13th. Taking forever and it is embarrassing going out but thank God you can't hardly tell. Unless I open my big mouth standing right in front of you which I usually am LOL.

    Im frantic trying to find Julia's addy. I had an address book that had everyone's written down in it even Mr. Jeff's for those that remember him, well my house has eaten it. I suspect my son's den has eaten it. And while it has been cleaned many times I still suspect it of having eaten it. JULIA please PM me your addy if you get in here. I will continue to look for things. I know I have got to have an envelope some where.

    Jeannie I am so glad you get to go to Florida. You deserve it and the new love.

    I am so over love. Having a companion might be nice to do things with but sex just does not interest me so as for a relationship I don;t see that happening. Sex is just about all men think about I said just about not all. And for some reason I am not attracted to men closer to my age. They have baggage and exes and grown children. When I think about it I do not feel my age, okay the body feels ninety, but I don't feel 51 anybody getting what I mean. I still giggle and blush and laugh at fart jokes. I guess maybe I thought I would be more stodgy. Maybe that was the picture my mind created when I was younger. Does anybody older than me still laugh at potty jokes? Prolly not lol.
