It's funny you mention that. NB told me to give it to you. I hope that what goes around that comes around doesn't come back around again.

ETA Looking good Mr D. Sun, music, good company and Guinness sounds good. I need to work on the Guinness. Glad to hear Eleven!

Hope your pain is short lived Night !

Unfortunately, there isn't a single day where I am pain free. Some days are better than others. I will see my Doc in June and she will surely order an x ray of my leg which has been really bad. I have also decided after many years to finally get a stronger pain med as my quality of life is getting worse because of all the pain.


As for blaming NB, he says to blame you for everything. Hmmm...LOL

WIS is tired, WIS needs hugs and prayers and uplifting thoughts.
What ever it is you do.

Too much.
WIS LOG. One Hundred and Twenty in twelve days and counting.

I want to be able to care about the people I love in RL and here. But I can't.

To me it sounds like what you need is what most working people have. A weekend/break. Learn to say no every once in a while. Let them eat cake. And get it themselves.

Hugs, prayers, happy thoughts, and anything else I can come up with are coming your way to make your day at least a tiny bit better.

I agree Light, but the US is a whole different animal. They believe in working people to death. And I need money to survive.
Thank you, HUGS

Hi again WIS! Sending you nothing but strength & light to find your way through. You’re already stronger than I was when I had to deal with a job like that. You will make it through, of that I’m sure! And when you can’t your wonderful friends here will carry you.

You are going to burn yourself out Wis! You can only take so much before your body gets sick and forces you to rest. I am concerned with all the hours you are working and being under so much stress.



You are in my thoughts and have my hugs and prayers.

Hello Sir Light!

Hello Birthday boy Blue!

Hello IWant2Believe! You are from CT? Connecticut in the US? I'm in Rhode Island.

That last post posted before I was finished. Is the place haunted?


I have been feeling weak and very tired all day. I slept a lot and watched the Paranormal series for a while. Nothing exciting going on here.


I'm sorry for holding the shed story up! Between my pain, mini vacation and losing my writing muse...Gah! Maybe the creatures from the story are holding my muse captive. LOL

Some places in Rhode Island are amazing! I'm just from an average place in Rhode Island though, nothing stunning or anything. LOL

I've been to Connecticut before which is beautiful too.

< waves > Good evening, Night Star, I hope you're well tonight

The thermometer on the back deck read 95* today, and it wasn't much better in the house. 90* on the first floor, and 104* upstairs in the bedrooms. When it broke 100*, I moved the cockatiel out of our bedroom & into one of the first floor rooms. He might have been loving it, but it was getting up there even for him to be in safely.

The rabbit was much harder to keep cool, since he's a stubborn little butthead. All the ice packs I put in his hutch yesterday & today to try to cool it down with were avoided like the plague. I gave up & put a frozen 2 liter of water in there today, he still avoided it. I moved it in front of his lounging/sleeping box to make him investigate it on his way to/from the box, & he finally did. At 8:00. Fat lot of good that did, lol.
He decided he likes it, he's been stretched out & pressed up against it off & on. Bud, you couldn't have figured this out earlier in the day? You'd have been much happier if you had!

The cat decided the basement was the place to be for the day, he finally came upstairs a while ago. I couldn't hack it down there like I'd planned. It was cooler, yes, but the humidity was just miserable. Trade one misery for another was about what it boiled down to.

Hopefully tomorrow will be much more kind, it was so hot that the kids even got sick of playing in the sprinkler. We opened up the deck umbrellas and tried to stay cool under them with sparkling waters & popsicles, while we used a roasting pan as an ice cold foot bath to plunk our very hot feet into. We used the watering jug for the plants as a way to cool off everything else, and I even hosed down the deck to cool off the scorching hot wood, lol. There was no escape, it was awful today.

Hi Sweetie! I love that you have animals! You are being a good animal Mom as well as a regular one.


I would die without an air conditioner. I would be living in my bathtub with cold water if I didn't. We had a really hot day Friday and then at night and following days have been cool to chilly. Weird weather.


Where are you from?

The way I see it is we can take off all our clothes to cool down further if we need to, but animals can't -- those fur coats (and feathers) are there 24/7/365, so summer's gotta be just as bad to them as it is to us, if not worse. It's only fair to try to keep them as comfortable as possible in the hot stretches, they can't do anything else!

Oh, you and me alike with the A/C there. I loathe not having it. We were going to get a portable room A/C unit for summer, visually akin to those tower heaters for winter, but this little heatwave cropped up before we could get one. I still have my eye on 'em, and I'm going to be the monkey on hubby's back about it so he doesn't forget/worm out of getting one. I keep reminding him he works in an air conditioned office, all we have at home is fans. A whole-house A/C system up here seems like a waste of money overall because the climate is so mild for most of the summer, but on those few blistering hot days, it seems like a heavenly idea. Or a simple portable unit does.

If you don't want the chilly weather, I'll take it! lol



Where are you from?

Originally? Florida. We're in Michigan now, we moved here a few years ago. You'd think being from Hotter-Than-Hades -- I mean, Florida, would make me immune to northern heat, but that's not the case. I may have grown up wondering if it was a humidity sheen on me or a sweat sheen, but I never, ever acclimated to the climate down there, I despised it my whole life.

High humidity, high heat, there's really nothing about it to love, it's too hot most of the year to bother trying to enjoy the outdoors
The only time of the year we took the kids to the beach was in April or early May, when the water was warming into the mid-70's & it wasn't too boiling hot on the sand yet. Write the rest of the year off, it's just too hot, especially summer peak in July/August. Nothing like roasting to death on a scorching hot beach, and trying to cool off in water in the 90's, YUCK. Bathwater temps

January/February is the coolest time of the year down there, a week or 2 of the 60's scattered in & then mostly low/mid 70's before it hops right back up to 80's. That's about the only time of year I recommend a vacation there, it's the best time of year climatically to enjoy the beaches & outdoors (because everyone from more northern states is going to think it's comfortably spring/summer-like) without risking getting heat-sick.
