Hello Everyone

  Well I have been messing around with the AOL pictures and trying to see how to mix them around.  These are just some old pictures I had around from our vacations and my favorite fishing spot.  Not sure how I like the pictures this way as you lose alot of the detail and they look fuzzy.  I did see someone do some flowers though that looked great so I am going out when the wind dies down to get some shots.

  We are having gale force winds outside today.  All night long things hitting the windows and one big old tree fell in the back woods and crashed down.  Made for a fitful nights rest.

  All of the visiting relatives are gone now and it should quiet down for awhile.  My MIL needs a rest though mentally the stimulation has been good for her.  I was upset to see she is still missing meals.  Now she just sits and waits for my BIL to get her something.  I told her she was getting up and getting her drinks and meals before he came and not to miss anymore meals waiting for him.  She is still able to open a boost or heat some soup, make a sandwich.  Its just alarming how fast the weight is dropping off.

   Maybe I am in a bit of denial though.  I remember when my FIL was dying my MIL nagged him non stop about eating and he didn't want to.  I finally told her to just stop nagging him and let him eat what and when he wanted to.  Maybe I should be following my own advice.  It just seems to be going so fast.  But I think she would have to be eating non stop to keep enough calories in her to stay ahead of what the cancer is burning. If only I could burn calories that fast and without exercising.  Without having cancer also.

  She is still in very little pain.  Some cramping which I think is from starvation, your body will act that way but otherwise no pain, just tired.  That is good.
 
   I have been pretty much trying to avoid my BIL.  He keeps popping up here and using my computer, but I told him my mornings I am off I do my work in the shop so at least I have my mornings to myself.  My hubby gave him one of my BIL's bonds we have been keeping for him and told him to cash it so he had his own money and wouldn't need mom's especially when his son comes next week. 

   I think my BIL was planning on his son coming here alot and playing with my son's game systems or my computer.  We told him we both will be sleeping all day and my son doesn't let anyone use his games without him being here.  It was fine when we were off but I need my sleep.  I am laying down some guidelines right away since he plans on staying here.  His son is a pretty good kid though and I am looking forward to seeing him.  Haven't seen my nephew since he was 3.  He is 12 now.

   I have my computer all set up and working good again.  I am using a free AVG virus program and zone alarm.  Not opening any attachments and I am scanning each email.  Hopefully I will never get another virus but they say nowadays its not if you get one, but what to do when you get it.  Sad.

   Take care everyone and enjoy the moments.

I'm waiting for AOL to reinstate the old way of adding pics before I post my next batch. I'm glad your MIL isn't in too much pain, I don't think she'd gain much weight if she ate non-stop. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

Beautiful pictures! I ended up clicking each one so I could enjoy the picture in it's entirety. Loved the one with the pier! (Hugs) Indigo

I'm glad you have your computer up and running again.  I know you were ready for it.  If you are careful, you shouldn't really have to worry about a virus.  I've only had two attacks on my machine since 2001, and Norton caught both of them before they did any harm.  Like I mentioned before, be cautious what you click on.

I know that she will eat less and less. It's hard because we want to make them eat. It's nurturing. So if he's not making her meals and making sure she eats....what exactly IS he doing there?  Don't answer that....I know.
I'm glad you have your computer all fixed up.  Have a good day.

Glad you laid the law down with BIL.  He's like a bad weed.  I like the AOL pictures but do wish they didn't fuzz them up so much.  It would be nice if they floated fully and clearly but then again, it's AOL.  I'm glad your MIL isn't in pain.  Chris
