 I was definitely coffee last night.  After doing my stairs I was hot and steaming and did I mention Hot and Sweating and gasping and coffee....I was coffee, not the carrot, not the carrot....not.........

   So I got my stairs in twice last night. Not because I am dedicated beyond believe.  When I arrived at work last night we were having a fire drill.  You can't use the elevator during a drill.   I was 2 minutes away from clock in and had no idea how long it would take.  So I have the joy of starting my shift like coffee, and ending my shift like coffee.   The patients just love a sweaty old gasping nurse who looks like she may need CPR taking care of them.  Instills trust, ya know!

    Anyway.  This is my last night.  Yippy.  It hasn't been a bad week though.  Some really funny things happened at work.  Real side splitters, I would tell you but I can't, trust me though, they were funny.  I love people.  Always can expect the unexpected.

   Rick is trying to track down the elusive BIL.  We have new papers for him to sign, proof read by me with no typing errors.  And a list of expensive reasons why it would be in my BIL's best interest to sign.   Yesterday my son signed the purchase agreement.  And bought a cell phone which I have been nagging him to do for years.  He is becoming a man, aaaaahhhhhhh

   At the end of the month one son will move out and we make way for a heartsick one to move in.  The separation from his children is going to be so difficult.  It is already for him.  I just want to cry thinking about it so how do I handle this latest loop in the roller coaster of life?  tuck it away...tuck it away.  Back with the worry about Zoey, the worry about my son buying the house, the worry about the upcoming depression and my falling stocks, nuclear war, fake politicians, bad gas mileage, toilet plugging, healthy eating, the next episode of 24, that annoying pain in my chest, baby seals, blah blah blah blah blah, .  To be dealt with slowly one fragment at a time until I can let the whole thing out.    Maybe not the best way but it works for me.

     Well, I will end this now so I can visit more journals and get more coffee.  Yummy.

The annoying pain in your chest?  Is it something other than WORRY?  And did you think I wouldn't notice if you just snuck it in there?  YES...I DID read the whole thing INCLUDING the next episode of "24" which I have also been waiting for BUT....apparently it's not coming back until next year!  Damn writers strike....(lol)

I hope the BIL shows up soon and signs those papers. Good for your son getting a cell. I hope your chest quits hurting soon. Maybe when things start working right it will. I feel for you about your son's family breaking up. Love your graphics today. Helen

Hope you can track down dear BIL....I know you want this closed out.  Good for your son...cell phone will be a nice.  Hope you have a relaxing evening...enjoy!

Let me get this were not a carrot last night?   Hope all goes well with BIL....surely even HE can see when he's licked.    (not that I'm saying anyone is licking him.)
Poor heartsick son.   I feel so sorry for him.   Life just isn't fair.    Maybe, though, with him living with you, you'll get to see those precious kids more.

I think the pain in your chest should be addressed, or the other stuff won't matter anymore. JMO.
Hope you find BIL and get things straightened out soon!

That's a myriad of problems but the one that concerns me the most is toilet plugging. Is that an olympic sport or a serious problem in the home?

What a way to become coffee!  De ;)

You know, Julie, it just never stops, does it?  Sometimes I just try to shut my brain off before it explodes.  It seems like there is far too much to worry about.  Our children's problems hurt us so bad.  I pray your son is ok with the divorce.  I'm also keeping your Zoey in my prayers.  Enjoy your time off and relax.  Chris

If all of that was going on in my life, I think I would have been the carrot.  I don't know which I'll be this weekend.  I need to tackle that family room.  I'll let you know on Monday ;-)

You mentioned pains in your chest once before Julie.  Please...pretty please...get it checked out for your own sake.
Let me know soon how you got on.

Just tell Rick to nip down to the pub and get BIL to sign there and then.  He wont be far from one.

I can hear you when you mention your other son and his grief, and yours, on having to let his wife have his children.  
I pray that things will turn in his favour one day.
Meanwhile....take care of you!  Ease up on those stairs for now...or I will come over there to tell you off personally!   Lol!
