Hi Marie, I thought I heard you cheering the other weekend after the Superbowl! How exciting!!
We're OK down here. Our business has slowed down & hubby is looking for another job. I'm looking, too, but finding it slim pickings. My mother is not doing so well. She's been in & out of the hospital & rehab a few times since the summer, so I have to travel back & forth a lot. it's very draining emotionaly & the gas is killing me.
I like the Agatha Raisin books, too. She's a hoot, isn't she?
I sent you a PN a few weeks ago. Did you ever get it?
It was great to hear from you! I miss our chats. Hope you & Brian are well.
Hey!!! It's so nice to see you! I haven't been on FB in a few weeks. I just don't have enough time in the day. You've been on my mind...I miss chatting w/ you, too. Oh yes, getting ready for tax season. =( I'm determined to not stretch out my misery this year, LOL, so I've got everything sorted. Now if I could just make myself sit down & actually do the work. Bah - it's so borrrring.
So what have you been up to? How's life out there? read anything good lately? How's hubby?
Hi! Haven't been around much--up to my eyeballs in executor stuff. Finally got the first set of papers filled out for the lawyer and sent off. Now I have to wait for something I have to sign so everything can go to probate court. Then we can leave. I don't think we're really going anywhere special since we've had to wait so long to leave. I think we're just going to make a straight line up to Connecticut with a few stops along the way to rest and refresh. Maybe on the way back we'll be sight-seerers, but I don't know. We were supposed to leave here around June 1, but the business with my brother's will really messed us up. Oh well.
How's everything with you?
Oh, so sorry for everything you've had to go through w/ Grandma's death! As if the passing isn't hard enough to deal w/, then you've got some family drama as well?! Why do people pull this kind of crap? It's not about them!! You were completely justified in your actions! Of course your mom shouldn't have driven alone & if your aunt was put off about planning everything by herself, perhaps she should hear about phones & start to use them! Sorry for ranting, but funerals seem to bring out the worse in people instead of the best. You should be able to lean on each other, not fight & act childish.
Yes, I know what you mean about support from friends vs. family. So many of us feel that, too. I don't know why some are often nicer to strangers than relatives. (Well, in my case I DO know why...LOL) Sending you lots of hugs....
Hey Marie! It was so nice to see your note the other day. I've been wondering how you are & unfortunately, haven't gotten on FB much or even here for that matter. Good for you to have Brian plant flowers while you read! Maybe you should give workshops on how to train your husband do that!!
I'm OK, thanks. Doing much better. =) The weekend's almost here. Hope you have a great one!
Meeting in Sarasota on September 13 sounds absolutely wonderful! Do you have a restaurant in mind? Well, first I should ask if you've been to Sarasota before. Have you? Oh, I'm so excited!
Sorry to hear you're a little down. I can sure understand that. Did the layoffs increase your work load? Good luck with the walking! I've been riding my bike every day and I know I feel better doing that. Hope you're feeling better soon. I'm here if you need to talk.
Hi Marie. Thanks of the note. Things are good here. The warmer weather has arrived, and the snow is almost melted! Although it was chilly today :-( I believe the weekend is supposed to be quite nice. I'm hoping it stays nice - we haven't had any snow this month, and usually we get at least one significant snowfall in March.
Have you listened to any good soundtracks lately?
