How are YOU FEELING today, can anything be done to make things better for you if a rough time? If you're having a good day share!!!!

  • I'm in a bad mood. I'm not liking my extended and immediate families very much right now. I'm fine just being with my husband and child. I don't need the others in my life at this point!

  • I agree first responder. My side of our family is just so egotistical that with them the rest of the world is blurred. You're doing what I do - pick and choose when and where to gather. Cuddle in with your family - thinking of you.

  • I'm having a pretty good day- I'd not been feeling well for a long time and a mess had piled up in my bed/sewing area. I'm able to spend time on it now and making progress :) makes me feel good-

  • I know how you are feeling... On Thursday my grandfather was hospitalized and we found out yesterday that he can never go back home to his house. Its really sad because he and my grandmother have lived in the same house for 55 years and they really never wanted to leave. But now he has to go to an assisted care facility and my grandmother has to sell the house. They don't even know if my grandparents will be able to stay in the same place, he needs so much care, but she is still relatively able to function, just not enough to care for him. So, I am on the same page with you - kind of a sad day today.

  • I am worried about my kitty. He has an infection in his front paw and is taking antibiotics. Yesterday he went to the vet and the drained the abscess and told us to keep him in the bathroom for a couple of days because his paw will keep draining. He is not happy in there and keeps yowling off and on. Also anytime anyone needs to use the bathroom he tries to escape. UGH!
    Other than that I am excited to deep clean my kitchen. WOOHOO! I am going to scrub my cupboards and wash the walls.
    I am sorry to hear about your relative, I feel you about how final the loss seems when their house is sold. Big Hugs!
