It's Monday, and I'm Rising, but I'm NOT Shining! 24 hours of liquid diet, the last 12 spent you-know-where! This morning had to drink more horrible stuff, then off to the hospital for further torture. Just for fun, we're having another snowfall just to make traffic interesting. Can I just fast forward to Tuesday?
Steph, good luck to you tomorrow, I'll be thinking of you!
Good morning from Orlando. Rollerdonna and Steph....hang in there!
I did some shopping yesterday for a few new things for our cruise next week. YAY! This will be the longest week in the world!
OK Steph and RD maybe this little bit of yummy will suit you better :
Hope everyone has a great day!!! Warm weekend here is long gone and hello cold (I haven't forgotten you Phil, you overgrown rat!!!!!!).

Good morning allCM's
Cool temps this morning, 57*
Doug, Love the chocolate strawberries...yummmy
Donna, hope all goes well with your ----- I've been there to.
We went to Sarasota last night. Earl got to see old friends from his college days. Lots of chatching up to do. Its funny the friends you lose track off, show up years later, looking the same, just older.
Now that his buddies are retired, they are moving to Florida and enjoying what we like all along...No snow!
Have a good week.
I'm going to enjoy the balmy 18 degrees as the weatherman tells me that as the day wears on, and the winds pick up, and as the snow squalls rage, the temps that follow them, with the windchill's will be at about -30.
Hard to believe we are getting 30 belows in March. Can honestly tell you, I'm really not looking forward to this, or to be honest.
Thank you guys for the pep talk on Saturday. I just am so overwhelmed I don't believe I can think rationally right now. My husband was on call, and worked all weekend, and I had no voice of reason to calm me down.
It is just a wait and see game until I get my next blood test on March 23rd I guess. I still think this doctor has some flawed believes as what he says and the hemotologist says are vastly different. I hope I can get someone who really knows involved in this case, that's why I believe I may ask for a endorcrinologist, tho' my doctor seemed real hesitant to refer me to one. Maybe my oral surgeon can refer me.
Didn't get a chance to get on yesterday. With the Pastor gone it's up to me to keep things rolling. Since half our congregation in Florida for school break, it made it really hard. Almost no musicians, no choir. Then we had a broken hot water heater, of course it was on the day of our monthly breakfast. Then an hour before Youth Group the two teen leaders scheduled for the night cancelled, and since my husband was on a call for work, that meant I had to go and do it. I was not really prepared, but we made it through and I don't feel like I completely wasted the teens time. Then of course whoever unlocked the side door on Sunday took the key with them so I couldn't lock it. Now I have to track that down, as well as the spare key to the boiler room. I have the door jammed taped so I can get in there with the repairman. Hopefully there will be no more emergencies until the Pastor gets back. I'm just not really on top of my game at the moment, and the extra stress is taking it's toll.
RD - I was where you are a month ago. Will pray that your's goes 100%
better than mine. I still can't think about that liquid without gagging.
Hope you have a safe drive. By tomorrow it will be all but an un-
pleasant memory. I didn't know you were not a shrimp lover!
Doug - Both the Seafood and the Strawberries looked good, but I have
no appetite for them at the moment.
Steph - will be praying all goes well for you!
It was an "exciting" day at Chuck-e-Cheese, with the grandkids. I can handle that about once every six to nine months but it was worth it because the kids had a great time. BTW: Their pizza isn't bad.
Donna: Just pretend you're going on a shore excursion to "Colon", Panama. I've been there a whole bunch of times. Panama, once but the other one many. I actually like having a position where I can look at the monitor. It takes your mind off of what's going on. Don't get knocked out, just relax, watch the monitor and talk to the doctor. It helps. The last time I had it, the doctor and I exchanged lines from "Young Frankenstein." It was actually fun. The prep is a heck of a lot worse than the procedure.
Jen, I'm glad you are doing better and taking some initiative.
To everyone else, have a great Monday and a wonderful week.

A beautiful day out my window, but a bit cold, for now. Warming up to 70 or so, though.
RD, I had my drink flavored Pineapple. My DH was surprised, since I don't like pineapple. I told him I would wasn't going to ruin the future tasts of some flavor I LIKE!
Steph, You're in my prayers.
Jen, I'm praying for you, that all will get better on all fronts!
I have a nice lady coming to MIL-sit this afternoon. I'm going to go play for a few hours. Probably a trip for a manicure/pedicure.
Have a great day!

Rollerdonna, hope all goes good with your "procedure", it will be done before ya know it! Take care
Steph, Good luck tomorrow and I'll be thinkin of you, and will be waiting to chat with you again soon. Perhaps your son could let me know how you are doing and I can post it on here, cause a LOT of people care and want to know how you are doing.Especially your Canadian "Sis".
To all the other Cruisemates, have a great day and be good to yourself.
glad u made it ok RD - Ive had enough of those "preps" to last me a lifetime... I dont mind the test one bit... just wish there was a better way to "prep" - Im shuddering now thinking about drinking that goop.
Go get something yummy now that you have survived the ordeal !!
Thank you Mike and Steph for your kind words, and Mike for your bad joke about Colon, Panama!
Mike, I hope there is nothing going on in your "lower right quadrant". For me, it was the lower left, but apparently all is well, despite the pain.
Steph, you are right, the prep is far worse than the test. There has GOT to be a better way....
