I found my soul mate, y'all!

Claudine, hold the fort! I'm on my way!

Or, you could just wait until you start having hot flashes.

You know what I miss about CT? (of course you don't, but I'm about to tell you) I miss hearing the big trucks dropping their snow plow on the pavement to clear the snow late at night; I always enjoyed the scraping sound.

My feet were painfully cold last year (hasn't been quite so bad this year, I just realized) and Mr. Spring tried his best to find me some type of heated socks or slippers that plug in for Christmas but he had no luck. If someone invented them I'd buy them in a second!

Minnesota is the first place I've lived where people don't go nuts and stock up on bread and milk when they threaten flurries.

I suppose this makes sense

Spring and ND: I know that Japan makes heating pads that you can put in your socks or boots. Maybe you can have someone in Okinawa (Sairoo, maybe) send you some! They are awesome! As are all heating packs in Japan.

I find people complaining about a skiff of snow hilarious.

I can't find my barbeque. It's buried under the mound of snow on my balcony. #canadianweather

My very cynical niece lives in GA where they might be getting a little snow and she recently posted on FB: "<Insert generic status about snow here.>"

I love that girl. I told her I hoped she stocked up on French toast ingredients! hehe

We actually had a good amount of snow for about 3hrs in Alabama. Lol felt like I was back at home in Chicago. FB statuses were very generic. I'm glad it's over. A girl I know collected a snow ball. She asked if I did....um no. It's frozen water lol bfd

How can I say goodbye P.L.G.

Spring and claudine, amazon has a few heated slippers. Didn't post a link because I am not really sure what you are looking for.

Thank you so much for the hugs and kind words, curlies. Once again, I am so glad I have this thread to go vent to about things.

Rou and CP, I don't feel very brave or strong, but reading those words is changing that a bit - kinda makes me feel like I have this whole other barrel of strength in reserve that I had overlooked before. Thank you.

Scrills, I couldn't bear to like a post that includes mention of your mother passing on your watch, but having that reassurance of the fact that this kind of ordeal is an unpleasant part of life that some families have to go through really helps. BTW, how have you been doing lately? I hope everything's calmed down with that ridiculous drama so you can just deal with life going on.

Fifi, your post also went straight to my heart. You are absolutely right, his altered mental state doesn't have to mean that my chance to have special moments with him is gone. At one point this morning, he was in this medium-alert state where his eyes were open and he was muttering things, and I went over and sat with him and I saw recognition in his eyes. After interpreting some garbled sounds with my grandma's help, I told him that I hadn't hugged him yet today. He said he didn't understand me - he wasn't processing things - and I did repeat it, but my Grandma had to explain it again to him when I was already mid-hug, lol. I don't think any other actual words were said. I just sat and stroked his head while he fell asleep. It wasn't some pretty, perfectly timed Hallmark moment, but he was present enough to know that I was there. I had gotten confirmation from my grandma that he wasn't the first time, because apparently he'd been asking where I was. I am so glad that now I know he knows I came to see him. I would definitely have been haunted by the thought of him leaving without knowing I'd come to see him off.

I think any future moments I have with him will be with him unconscious - I think even the awful retching he started doing earlier tonight might have been done while not fully conscious. If I get to sit and talk to him like my mom did a bit ago, I'll speak with the knowledge that my words may really be getting through. All that reading I did on vegetative states awhile back in addition to some recent reading about disordered dream states has taught me that the line between conscious and unconscious is far more blurry than you'd think. If I don't get to sit and talk to him, I'll be okay. He knows I was there. That's what matters most to me.

Big ((((HUGS)))) to everyone else going through a hard time. It may be a blanket message, but I mean it personally, dangit.


ETA: While I was typing that, my uncle leaned over and asked me what I was lookin' at, and I clicked over to another tab and said, "Internet." I...I'm Timmy Turner now? But - but my braaaaiiiinnnsss!! I re-covered by saying I was sending an email to a friend. I said about the same thing to my mom soon after, but it was multiple emails to multiple friends. Ssshhh, nobody tell! I can't handle composing emails right now and I also can't handle anyone seeing what I'm typing, but I can clearly handle posting in the venty thread.

works for me. In fact, what I miss most about snow in NJ is all things snow at night. I liked hearing the plows, and the neighbors shoveling, and I loved listening to the quiet when the plows and shovelers aren't around. When I was a kid, I would stand at my bedroom window and watch the snow falling in the light of the streetlight across the street from my house. I really loved doing that. Of course, I loved when Tommy or Jeanne across the street would call to say that Tommy's friend, whose mom worked in the school office, had called to tell them that school was cancelled, but the sound and sight of the snow falling is my favorite memory.

Now the best we get is frost on the roof early in the morning. No fun to watch or listen to, and no snow days

I absolutely love this country. The land of my birth, but I don't really think I can live here any longer if Rand Paul's idea to arm teachers and principals in schools comes to fruition.

An order comes in at 11:01 and when the person who took it comes to get it I point out that it came in after closing. He tells me that he can't say no. If he does, people complain at the front desk or ***** at one of the managers. Uh, this doesn't make me more disposed to make the order, it makes me less. So people just get to ***** until they get their way? Guess what? **** them. For real, what the **** is wrong with these people and how ****ing entitled do they have to be to think it's perfectly okay to expect food after a restaurant is closed just because they want it? I guess it's not enough that we're in here ten hours. I guess it's not ****ing enough to be so busy that you're dying for a drink of water for four hours before it finally slows down enough to get some. Or waiting ten hours to step off the line and go to the bathroom. Nope, we need to be around longer because that's what you want.
Lord let me never get a ticket any later than five minutes after closing because I swear, I SWEAR, my ass will get fired. The probability of rage and instant gratification of telling these tools where they can go winning over reason and plans of staying long enough to pay my loans is 100%.

^ you ain't lying. People do that at my job, they come in 2 minutes before we close, and because they do that we have to let them in. And watch them, walk around for an hour or whatever they please. They don't seem to care that we're all STARING AT THEM, as they walk around. "oh well you're getting paid aren't you glad to be here" . ....gfto here with that bs.


y'all my name is not murrrcat it is murrrca t. as in America tyrannosaurus
