    Oh GB I am sorry you are having such a struggle. Seasonal affective disorder is such a real thing. I had to take meds one winter a long time ago. It got me through & luckily I have been able to work through it without meds since then. My problem was the same, cried all day long. Hope you get some relief soon.

    CH - good to hear from you! Glad you got a good report. Your DH sounds charming, peeling grapes for you & feeding you Bon-bons!

    CH how nice to see your post. I have seen people use a rolling desk chair to get around. One knee in the desk chair seat and the other foot walks. There is a web site kneerover.com that has a fancier version.

    I also used an (scissors-leg) ironing board as a bedside table because the height could be adjusted to whatever was needed.

    Pot roast turned out well so I was pleased. Lots of sandwich material for later this week.

    Dlrcpa, yes, we are using my office chair to get around. It doesn't roll so well on carpet, though.

    Pot roast sounds pretty good. DH made some of the burger patties I froze.

    I hear the norovirus is breaking out across the country. Those of you who are feeling sick, take care.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Winkie-Big Lots had XL jars of coconut oil for cheap not that long ago. I looked at the black drapes but here in fur city-no go.

    CH-glad to see you pop in. DH had enormously swollen feet after his injury. I remember him being stoned out of his mind asking me how they looked. I was like,uh.well.There so bandaged I cant tell,smile. Try and be patient. And enjoy being waited on??

    GB-I'm very up and down plus restless. Didnt you just say you went off the meds too. Your body mind be adjusting biochemically also. Try and fill any downtimes. That helps me to keep moving.

    DH is in a royal snit and I'm having trouble putting up w/ it. I told him just because your job is hard doesnt mean everything else is mine by default. I am trying to muster up some positive things to say but wow-really reaching tonight. Love that man but maybe not as much today as some other times.

    Working at the soup kitchen, washing and cleaning my car, planting spring bulbs, and trimming some bushes. It is suppose to be in the 70s today and I need to be outside. Thank you all for your kind words. I am trying to stay positive today. DH wasn't very supportive last night. He just doesn't get it. He thinks I'm whiny and just wanting my way. Going to talk to my youngest DS today and see if he can talk to him. He has more impact on him than anyone else.

    CH, welcome back! Hopefully the frustration/inconvenience now will be over quickly.

    Gbug, I'm so sorry. Stay in the sunshine as much as you can. My DH used to think I used "that time of the month" PMS to just act b*&#@y. Men could NEVER live through what women do.

    dlrcpa, pot roast is wonderful---easy to cook and wonderful leftovers.

    ermadunk, I hope your sore throat is gone today.

    Winkie, thanks for the input on the Ollie's blackout curtains. We need some in our bedroom since the windows face east but haven't found any we like. We've got a 15% off coupon for Ollie's so I think a trip is in order.

    fw, you're handling things better than I would. Your comment about loving him better some days than others is very appropriate.

    For Monday:

    1) Finish Bible study homework DONE
    2) Bake brownies for visit to friend who's in town DONE
    3) Visit friend at her mom's house
    4) Bible study class 6:30
    5) Pick up prescriptions

    Ermadunk-Dmom had nose cancer which was ironic as she hates the sun and always used sun screen. I think it was the smoking??? but if someone is going to have cancer that about the "best" kind. They scraped hers and she never had anymore issues for 20 yrs and counting.

    ILC-IDK if I am. handling it well

    Today I vacuumed the upper floor, two bedrooms & hall. Dusted shelves in hall & the wood on stairway. Found another piece of furniture that needs a "treatment". I have a child size roll top desk from my childhood & it looks pretty scuffed up. It is in the small bedroom with the crib & youth bed. Will put that on my to do list, but probably not this week.
    I put new contact paper on the closet shelves in the bathroom, no more pink & blue! Unloaded dishwasher, washed a load of clothes, made supper. That's about it, in addition to working 8 hours.
    Tomorrow:
    I work 6:00 to 2:30
    Vacuum main floor, swiffer the wood floors.
    Having left overs for supper
    Put stuff away in bathroom closet.

    We got more snow today, we may have enough to go sledding Saturday when the kids come.
    Have a great evening!

    Worked at the soup kitchen, got free toothpaste at CVS, planted bulbs, and washed and cleaned my car. I took a new client to a park where she was living in a tent. Her car had broken down and she had no money to fix it. Her husband is in prison fro fraud and all her assets were frozen. She has fiibromyalgia and MS and someone had stolen her feds. I took her and we got two pillowcases of clothes and then went to the ER. She just wanted me to let her off since she had taken up so much of my time, but I told her no and I went in and explained her situation to them and they gave her the forms to fill out. I then hugged her and left her to get help. So sad.

    Good morning. It is cold here, but going to be in the 70s again today. Going to the post office, bank, and then to pay off a bill. Then on to Kroger to send a western union and pay on another bill. I have to put Ranger in a crate each night since he seems to wander and walk around aimlessly. He usually wakes up around 2:30 or 3 and begins barking. I take both dogs outside and put them back inside. He continued barking last night. He has canine dementia if there is such a thing. It's driving me crazy. Any of you have expertise dealing with dogs like that?

    Gb-no but Mia has been in heat almost 3 months. Crying and mewling all night on and off. So yeah-sleep? I cant let her in w/ me or she wont leave me alone.

    We got about 4" and everyone is acting like its 20 because of the news. There are schools closed in the lower part of the state. I guess its mostly because of the timing during rush hour.
    No big plans today.
