WOW....... Thursday was pretty easy to get through...no major problems or techinical difficulties so that is a good thing. Allen and Crystalyn and I too Anthony out yesterday morning at 7:30 to catch his bus... of course you know that I had to take pics of that..... he is just tooo cute waiting for the bus and getting on...the steps are bigger then he is..Anyway-after the day was done no one was in the mood to deal with dinner so we decided to go out last night to our favorite restaurant which is called Hong Kong Buffet...we got there so often that everyone that works there knows us...it is pretty funny. We all stuffed ourselves and came home and mellowed out. The kids all watched movies and such and I just crashed...to tired to do much of anything. Like I said no major problems and a great evening spent with the family-just like I like it. PEACE!!!!!!!

Another day bites the dust....I could not for the life of me go to sleep at all during the nite....noooooooo I have to wait until daylight after 11 in the morning for sleep to finally hit me. Well sure enough I slept the day away. However this time around I woke up with some extra energy... I decided I was going to tackle my aol email problems and my daughter's room (ugh!) So I decided that before I call the dsl company and everything else I would try to log onto my account through my daughter's computer and see if it was accessible...well sure enough it was ...so it has nothing to do with the dsl like the AOL TECH said... it has something to do with a corrupt file of my screen name..... so I knew I had to uninstall and reinstall AOL on my puter. But before I get to that part I decided I was going to check my mail on my daughter's computer since I was already there....well that gave me a chance to keep on her and tell her where to put things and what to pick up and things to vaccum...well i guess you got the idea....well NOW her room looks hot... we fixed up the futon like a sofa and that is exactly what it looks like no longer a bed.... and I cleaned up her puter area putting things away and now it is all organized... and she put all her new mini teddies and porcelain dolls on the shelves all nice and organized.... WOW I can actually feel like hanging out in there....LOL Well that went on for 3 hours... she hated me being in there but LOVED the results afterwards..so I think she feels it was all well worth it. Then I came back to my puter and did the thing with AOL.... it seemed like it took forever and I reinstalled and now my mailbox works great. I am so excited I don't know what to do.I want to jump for joy but with my luck I would hurt myself. Now the downside is that I was unable to save any of my paint shop pro tutorials or my poems...which breaks my heart... but I can always start collecting again... I am trying to look at the bright side.
Have I mentioned yet that I collect business cards... that is a story in itself but I did get new business card trades in the mail so I was again very excited. Crystalyn and I belong to a postcard trading club so today we got our first 10 trades.... we were both too excited and this really is becoming alot of fun. PEACE!!!!!!!!!

WOW...another week has bitten the dust. Not much to talk about from my end. Allen Jr went for some job interviews, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that he gets something. Eric had alot of errands to run and of course he begged me to use my van... boy that child just has to show me those eyes of his pouty and I would give him the world. But don't tell him. Crystalyn and Anthony straightened out her room (I just about had a heart attack) and Anthony was so proud that he could figure out how to use the vaccum cleaner. I bought her new posters for her room and she is really starting to pull her room together. We are slowly changing the look from a lil girl to a teenage girl. She has gone for that 60's look and really it is coming along great... when it is all done I will take a pic and post it here. We bought her a bunk bed but the bottom part is a futon sofa... and the top is a definite bed... it really looks wonderful in her room and the bed sheet set is in that 60's psychedelic look...lots of bright colors and all. She got a new bean bag chair with the same pattern which is perfect and the posters she picked out are 3-d type. The room is really nice. I wish I had a room like that when I was growing up. Allen woke up with a vicious headache so he slept alot longer then usual today. Once he gets one of those headaches he just cannot function. Of course the typical storms came through so that prevented any online time.Well nothing more really has happened... Just another day in the neighborhood... today I tried to write and be creative but I am kind of in a stuck mode so not much gone done there. I am working on my scrapbook albums for xmas presents so they are coming along nicely ... I just have to get alot more done on them.
Hope I did not bore anyone at this point. Peace!!!!!

Thursday was dull. I slept most of the day, my sleeping schedule is really off because of my medications and all. Allen worked all day on my motorcycle and the Eric has his sports physical for fall football. Allen jr discovered that his puter crashed so for hours he sat trying to get it running, unfortunately it has to go to the tech guys...they think his motherboard got fried. Crystalyn watched Anthony (my nephew) who is five all day and that is a full time job on its own. But she took him bike riding and playing outside so it wore him out. Allen jr did pick up his scooter from the repair shop so he is happy camper as far as that is concerned. He thrives on being able to ride around and go where he wants.
I was able to get on the puter earlier then usual but my hips and joints eventually got the best of me and I had to get off. After sleeping for a bit I have gotten back on because I just had too many tags to make for several groups I belong to. So as you can see the day was dull. I think on friday we will try to get to the grocery store but that all depends on everyone's plans. With 2 18yr old boys-food quickly disappears. I vote that they get their own refrigerator and stock their own food...they are killing me with the grocery bill. And trust me no one wants to know how much I spend on groceries.
Well i guess that is all the news that is fit to print...see you all next time.

Just wanted to keep track of what we have been doing here in the sunshine state. The summer storms are preventing me from getting online until VERY late. This really is getting to be a drag, we have lost our electric at least a dozen times in the last week. The weathermen around here claim that august is the worst time for storms... I can't wait... Today we were under a tornado warning .... it did get bad here but we are fine of course. I think the storm aged the dogs but we are all fine. We decided to go out to dinner with the electric going on and off it makes it almost impossible to cook at home.
Allen worked on my motorcycle...yes you read it right-I own a motorcycle.. it is a site to see honestly, but Allen is the driver - I am just the happy go lucky passenger that can't seem to get enough speed. He is working on the carburators so that we can go out riding in between storms if that is at all possible.
School starts on monday here (thank God) so maybe things will settle down a bit more. All else is good and I am fixing to head to bed and hopefully sleep. Thanks for reading my journal-PEACE!!!!
The week is slowly moving along... so far my friends who have written to me about my lil journal online have given me positive feedback so I guess this is a good thing to do for now. Well Today it just stormed away..there was no way I could get online. So I slept away and I am still tired but I really need to eliminate some email. I tried to access my email and sure enough aol stops responding, well I went back and forth with aol tech and it turns out that there is some sort of gliche in the system and it is affecting some email boxes. Unfortunately one of those mailboxes is mine.
I must have stayed with aol tech for over two hours. Finally one of them told me about the gliche so there is nothing anyone can do and I am stuck. I can access my email account from the internet but it takes alot longer and is a bit more complicated that way. But at this point I have no choice.
For those of you who know about my illness, suffice it to say I have been going through some rough moments the last couple of days...my legs are so swollen along with my ankles that the pain becomes unbearable at times. But the good side is that the oxygen is helping with the breathing so I guess it is a nice trade off. I just wish at some point the docs could stablilize me because I feel like such a test guinea pig at this point.
Allen (my hunnie bunnie) got tonight off because he worked overtime during the weekend so they flexed him out. So it is nice having an extra night with him around. We ordered out pizza and just watched movies tonight and enjoyed the night together. Everyone was home so it was really nice and no chaos which is my favorite part.
Well as you can see my life is just so ordinary but it is fun trying to keep my friends and family updated as to what is going on in my life. See you all on the flip side. Peace

Well Yesterday turned out to be different from the ordinary routine. I never slept yesterday..... not really feeling very well and so as a result I stayed up all night watching old movies and playing on my faithful puter... Around 8:15 in the morning Allen (my hunnie) called and said for me to get dressed and be ready for when he got home from work because he wanted to take me out to breakfast. What a TERRIFIC surprise. So I got ready, and we were off. We really took our time eating and talking and just enjoying the fact that there were no kids and all was peaceful.
Afterwards to stopped by the tag office so that Allen could renew his car tag.... we were about 6 days late doing that. Usually there is always such a LONG wait at that place especially on a mondays but we must have hit it right because we were in and out in less then 10 minutes. That was a pleasant surprise.
Then we had to stop at our drug store to pick up my medications. Just way tooooo many pills to take but I guess they are sustaining my life. So I will just keep taking them. Allen and I figured out that because I won my lawsuit against the state and workman's comp.... that now they are paying at least $1,000 a month on medications for me. And just think they have to do that for the rest of my life.... I think it is a perfect ending to a miserable 3 years of fighting with them. Maybe some other day I will go into what the lawsuit was all about.... right now my eyes are drooping and I know I will never stay awake long enough to write about the whole three yeasrs.
Well by the time we got home...my ankles were the size of big oranges and the pain was unbelieveable...just another side effect of the meds I take.... so I came home and have been sitting in my recliner in my puter room vegging out in front of the t.v. and writing. Really not feeling up to par to do much else.
Of course living in the sunshine state during the summer time every day we experience wild storms....well yesterday was no different and the roads flooded in my area and that cut off any puter time I couldhave gotten...... so now it is 2 in the mroning and the storms have finally settled down and now I have a quick chance to go thr

WOW!!!!!! THIS IS GRAND. I always wanted to keep an online journal and now here is my chance...... sometimes I am missing in action for a while and this will be a great way to let everyone know what is going on with me and in my life. I love to write about anything and everything and I have been keeping a personal journal since I was in 10th grade in high school.... which is over 20 years ago. I love to write down my thoughts and feelings and news and quotes that I come across and opinions about things going on around me and in the world... this will be a great chance to do it all. I do hope that you enjoy reading my entries.... and if you have any comments please please feel free to leave your comments in the appropriate section.... just do not be mean! But honestly works best.
