Been Gone

Sorry I havent posted in awhile but I have been in the hospital. Everything has turned out ok (my body had no potassium and my bp was 70/68) and there is no new sign of any sort of cancer. I'll post more in a few days when I feel better. One neat thing is that I am getting an aide that will come to my house to help me regain leg strength.

Friends List

I would love it if some of my former friends here, that are on my friends list again, would add me back on so that I could read your entries. I miss some of you so much and I know that I'm not seeing everyone's entries. Thanks!

Altered Lives Books

I doubt if hardly anyone here was in Altered Lives but I was just looking at 3 books our group made...a quote book, an alphabet book, and an address book. These were so so cool. I wish I had more than one copy of each. Boy, I miss my group sometimes...

Cemetery Trip

Devon and I went to the only all natural cemetery in the US today. It took us about an hour and a half to get there. It was in the middle of nowhere and as we were appoaching it we were a bit worried as the area, for the previous mile, was quite rundown. We were so pleasantly surprised. Its all paths and hiking trails through acres and acres of partially cleared woods. They are building a small natural wood chapel. There is a gong, some yard art, a beautiful picnic table and chairs, a fire pit, wildflowers everywhere, flat burial stones that are stones from that area,....just super nice. I tell you, if I was wealthy, I would look into investing in something like this. Only shrouds or pine caskets are allowed. Ashes as well. You felt like you were in a quiet isolated park. So if I get sick suddenly or whatever, I told Devon this was it and she agreed. She even said she wouldn't mind being laid there either. And Muffin (my cat whose ashes I have carried around for 6 years) can be scattered or buried with me, as well as Cheyenna....I posted the url the other day if anyone wants to check it out. I will post some pictures tomorrow!

My toenails are painted for the first time in over 10 years! Hehe! For the interview, I'm wearing my black hippie dress (no pattern), Nine West sandals I borrowed from my neighbor, my fake hair that is almost black and shoulder length and that everyone thinks is natural (its real hair so it gets messy and looks real) and a pair of small diamond stud earrings. Geez, you'd think I was applying for a job where I made money.  Then I need to get a frame for "Night Lily" and probably go to the oncologists to have my lymph glands checked.... Fun, fun, fun.....

Interview

I wonder what I am going to wear for my interview on Thursday. NONE of my pants fit. I mean they won't even stay up... I walk around and they fall to my feet. I have a couple long hippie type dresses....hmmmm?

Ugh

I have never searched so long or at so many places for decent airline prices. I tell you they dont exist anymore. I figured out what it would cost us gaswise to drive roundtrip  to Santa Fe and that was even worse.... Maybe I should just give up...

Even though I am not a big fan of SC, there is always here: http://www.memorialecosystems.com/AboutUs/tabid/53/Default.aspx   It'll be sad though that I cant share my favorite places with Devon...Oh well. Right now, I'm too exhausted to worry about it, I guess.

Glad I Live in the Mountains

We have had nowhere near the heat the rest of the country has. If you ever watch the Weather Channel and look at the very Western part of NC, you will see a beautiful dip of a different color that indicates that it is at least 10 degrees cooler than anywhere else in the Mid Atlantic or South. And while we can have some frequent ferocious winds, more than not, they are welcome. Usually anywhere you go that is more than 40 minutes from here is at least 10 degrees hotter. So we probably had 3 days that were uncomfortable without a/c. Most homes around here dont have it but I lucked out when I bought this.

I joined Points which is a point exchange program. Its free and with it you can gift points and swap points etc. So if anyone has anything that is a reward program that they dont care about, please take a look....I would be so happy to take any donation. Also, Enchy, I think you can donate the Alaska and the US Air through them, either into my Delta or NW. They also do things like Priority Club and the like. I'm starting more and more to think about driving out there but I am scared I'll get sick and I know Devon doesn't know how to help with camping and the like. I would look at joining http://www.usservas.org/ (Servas) but my home is not nice or big enough to entertain in. I swear my LJ link cut thing isnt working or else my short term memory has made it vanish. Oh well.....

You know....I just annoy people and I dont know why. I dont annoy strangers or anything like that, but I think my brother, my daughter, and my ex, sometimes wish I would just disappear
