~Just me :o) ~

Well....I'm back! lol....I didn't go anywhere, just didn't get on line yesterday! :o) *****Has anyone been having problems with recieving journal alerts?***** I got on this morning thinking I'd have over 300 email to go through....and I had no journal alerts! Every morning when I get on line, I have about 175 emails to go through...this morning I only had 67! Big difference! :o) I don't know if aol is doing something again or not. Before they do, they could at least let us know before hand! :o) Geesh!
As for the last entry; I wish I could say I got sleep...but no, not yet! I feel so "fuzzy" if that makes sense? Since I'm not getting cold/flu thingy is still hanging on! ggrrr! :o) My massage therapist came this morning and OH BOY! She gives me a deep tissue massage, and she was exercising my right leg (after she does the front side) My leg went nuts! lol It was just going to do it's own thing, while she was trying to keep my leg straight! lol I started laughing and told her that I wasn't doing it, my leg had a mind of it's own today! lol My knee cap slipped again and she put it back. My whole body was in a mess this morning. She even massage my hands. She usually does, but this time she had to take more time on them. I think the injections that I had awhile back are starting to go away. Which is why I'm in so much more pain. As soon as an injection wears of...the pain WILL come right back immediatly and as bad as it was! And thats an OUCHIE! :o) Whew! I've been using the biofreeze which takes most of the edge off, which helps so much. And thats really all I want.
I had a dentist appointment this morning as well. Oh yay! NOT! LOL :o) I just had my teeth cleaned, and the dentist found another tooth to pull! lol That would mean that I'll have maybe if I'm counting right, 10 of my own teeth left! I know that really didn't sound have an upper plate that I have to wear. :o) Right after I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, my teeth really gave up on me and they all had to be pulled! Not very happy about it either. But, I am thankful that I do have teeth. :o)
I recieved another post card yesterday! Thank you Amanda! :o) It's so beautiful and tranquil looking! :o) I'm still sending out post cards if you want one from me and let me know! You can even live in Ohio! :o) This game is too fun to stop! :o)
I'm still very excited for my daughter! :o) Things are really working out! YAY! :o) They just went out for lunch! Soooo cute! :o) I just got the mail, and I recieved 2 post cards from Dianne! Thank you! :o)
Well....I'm going to go for now....and I am hoping that the alerts will start working soon. :o) Thank you all so very much for your comments! They are all so encouraging. :o) God bless!

Up late and need to talk

I'm up and can't get to sleep. gggrrrr! I'm not going to get any better if I can't get the rest I need to help my immune system. But...thats fibromyalgia for ya'. :o)
I have been having a lot of problems with my health lately and it has been weighing on my mind. Everything that I have is genetic. It skiped a generation and hit me and my sister! My younger sister has fibromyalgia as well, but not as bad. Thankfully the doctor found it in time so she isn't in a lot of pain. :o) Whew! :o) I don't wish this pain on anyone! Not even any enimies! Today, the bottoms of my feet have been numb and painful to walk. I get a sharp "shocking" feeling in my back/spine. Which is telling me that my spine is getting worse. The tumors and spurs are touching my nerves on my spine. Ouchie! :o) My hands aren't doing so well. I can barely write anymore. lol...I'm sure the people that I sent post cards to could tell that! :o) They have been cramping up and wanting to go into a fist...if that makes sense?! I've been doing hand and finger exercises to try to keep my hands from going into a fist.'s funny to see me do that one! :o) I've been very clumsy lately as well. Which worries me because I fall a lot, and I can't have that happen. Usually when I fall, I break my feet and ankles! lol...I've been on crutches and had so many casts on! lol My right ankle...the last time I broke it, the doctor didn't set the bones properly and I know have a piece of bone just "floating" can feel it! Yuck! It's pretty gross! My knee caps go out of place all the time and I have to put them back on my own! Now that turns my stomach every time I have to do that! Yuck! ;o) My massage therapist has to put them back when she gives me the deep tissue massages. lol...I think it kind of grosses her out too! :o) I'm used to that pain. Well....I'm used to a lot of my pains....I don't know if thats good or bad! :o) Because half the time I don't know whats what! :o) Could it be the fibro...or the ms...or the arthritis...or what ever else I have! :o) It's just a guessing game at times.
Right now...I'm not able to sleep because I haven't gotten tired yet! Thats part of my sleep disorders! lol...and I have 3 of those! So...who knows which sleep disorder is causing it! lol :o) Again...I'm guessing! :o) Like with this cold/flu thingy...I thought I was better, but today I was back to the way I was feeling a few days ago! Good Grief! :o) Fibromyalgia has your immune system down anyway, then the lack of sleep added to that makes a mixture of how I'm feeling and the pains I'm going through still! :o) really gets confusing! lol :o) But...I know....this too shall pass! :o) Just waiting and riding the wave that has been thrown at me! :o)
Well....I think I'm going to try again to get some sleep. Thank you so much for all of your comments! :o) They get me through my days! :o) God bless all of you....He has me! :o)

Do you believe in God?


Do you believe in God?

NBC this morning had a poll on this question. They had the highest
Number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls,
and the
Percentage was the same as this:

78% to keep
the words, IN God We Trust and God in the Pledge of Allegiance
22% against

That is a pretty 'commanding' public response.

Now it is your turn .... It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.
Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such
A mess about having
"In God We Trust" on our money and having
God in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Why is the world catering to this 22


In God We Trust



Ok....I can finally say why I'm so happy! :o) My daughter and her fiancie had broken up months back, and she and my grandson has lived with us since! :o) She was dating someone for about 2 months...he didn't treat her good at all! My husband and I weren't too happy to see how she was treated. Then....she broke it off with him Saturday night! :o) When Jeremy would come to see my grandson and visit him...I could see that he still really loved her!!! :o) After all these months....he waited on her! :o) I know that I was praying for my daughter to find the right path in her life....and in 1 day, it seemed to all fall into place! :o) She and my grandson are soooo very happy now! :o) It has been so long since I've seen my daughter with life in her eyes. She's constantly smilling and has that twinkle back in her eyes once again! And...of course, my grandson is very happy about this too! YAY! :o) It truly is a blessing! :o) They've been together for over 4 years! I think they will be together for the rest of their lives! :o) They are sooo happy! And so are we and his family! YAY! Are prayers were answered!

I want to thank all of you for the birthday wishes and cards and e-cards! Wow! I loved them all! :o) I got out of the house yesterday, and wasn't on line except in the morning. I had to get my drivers licence's much fun. lol Not! :o) My mom and my sister had lunch and it was so relaxing. :o) It's been raining here for the past few days now, and when I walked out the door, just hit me...I had a hard time breathing. I can't imagine how it is for people that has breathing problems. My chest was hurting and it was very hard for me to breath. So....when I came back home, I put on my pj's and had to rest once again....gggrrr! I still have a fever and going out side...just didn't help with my cold/flu. Geesh! :o) I was getting over heated...then freeze all over again. I'd put my hair up, then have to take it back down. I guess I need to take better care of myself...which I don't know how much better I can do, when I'm not doing anything at all, but to rest! :o) Good Grief! :o)

Sooo...thats what my plans are for more! lol Geesh! This really is starting to get old now...! lol :o) I woke up this morning to a dozen roses! :o) Beautiful! I put them in a vase and my son and daughter both, baught me a miniture rose bush! :o) After it stops raining, I'm going to ask my husband or son to help plant them with my other roses! :o) The dozen roses were from Jeremy! My daughter of course got a dozen roses as well! :o) So sweet! :o) I really had such a great day yesterday, even though I started not feeling good again! I feel so blessed! :o) I have such a loving family! :o) It was a great birthday! :o) Every year, all I want is my family to be here! And I got it! :o)

Well....I need to get off of here. :o) Before I forget, I recieved a post card as well yesterday! :o) Thank you so much Barb! I love the boot cut out! :o) And thank you to all of you that left comments! Gentle hugs and God bless all of you! :o)

Read out loud the text inside the triangle below. 




More than likely you said, "A bird in the bush," and........




if this IS what YOU said, then you failed to see



that the word THE is repeated twice!



Sorry, look again.



Next, let's play with some words.




What do you see?






In black you can read the word GOOD, in white the word EVIL (inside each black letter is a white letter). It's all very physiological too, because it visualize the concept that good can't exist without evil (or the absence of good is evil ).  





Now, what do you see?









You may not see it at first, but the white spaces read the word optical, the blue landscape reads the word illusion. Look again! Can you see why this painting is called an optical illusion?



What do you see here?






This one is quite tricky!


The word TEACH reflects as LEARN.



Last one.


What do you see? 




You probably read the word ME in brown, but.......


when you look through ME


you will see




Do you need to look again?

This is neat! :o) I got 4!


Count every " F" in the following text:




6 -- no joke.

Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.

The reasoning behind is further down.

The brain cannot process "OF".


Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!

Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.
Three is normal, four is quite rare.

Just something to make you say hmmm! :o)

More Brain Stuff . . .

Does God exist?

This is very good {Does God Exist?

This is one of the best explanations of why God allows pain and
suffering that I have seen. It's an explanation other people will understand.

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.
As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.
They talked about so many things and various subjects.

When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said:
don't believe that God exists."

"Why do you say that?" asked the customer.

"Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God
doesn't exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick
people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would
be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving God who would
allow all of these things."

The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he
didn't want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and the
customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man
in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He
looked dirty and un-kept.

The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said
to the barber: "You know what? Barbers do not exist."

"How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber. "I am here, and I
am a barber. And I just worked
on you!"

"No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because if they
did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards,
like that man outside."

"Ah, but barbers DO exist! What happens is, people do not come to me."

"Exactly!"- affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too, DOES
exist! What happens, is, people don't go to Him and do not look for
Him. That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."


Anything can happen day!

Happy to say that I'm finally feeling a bit better! YAY! :o) I can sit up without getting dizzy/dizzier! lol Last night was my son's first gig! My daughter went and took pictures for me...I couldn't go. :o( I missed it. I will go to all of his other ones though! I'm so proud of him! :o) I finally put photo's of my daughter and grandson and my son up! :o) I'm very proud of them! :o)
My husband gave me a birthday card this morning. :o) Of course, with his sense of was funny and made me laugh! lol :o) Tomorrow I'll be 43! Yikes! lol Just a number! :o)
I don't have any plans today. I still don't feel up to really going anywhere. My fibro has been acting up as well. Of course...I can't be just sick without everything else joining in on all the fun! Geesh! It'll pass! :o)
Thank you all for your comments and emails. :o) I hope everyone feels better..."Stevie"! :o) We want J-Land to be healthy! :o) Krissy and John are still in my prayers as well. Gentle hugs go out to all of you! God bless each and everyone of you! :o)

I can't believe this.

Good morning! I've been doing my best to keep up with my alerts. Yesterday and today are not very good ones at all. I haven't felt this bad in a very long time. I'm still pretty shaky and very weak. Boy...a cold/flu can really knock me down! It is flaring everything I have, up! :o( Bummer! The fibromyalgia and ms is really getting the blunt end of this, then I just take it one minute at a time and do the best that I can to get better. Yuck!

My daughter was very surprised at all of the nice comments that she had recievd! She said, "Thank you!" I still haven't seen my son to ask him about donating. He lives here with his girl friend...and I still don't see him! LOL :o) Our schedules are just different. :o) He donates blood as well. :o) I'm very proud of them both! :o)

I sent out another post card this morning. :o) It really is fun to do this! Like right now for me....being sick and stuck in bed most of the time, gives me something to look forward to! :o) I know...I'm a dork! lol :o)
I put an entry in John and Krissy's journal....I sent it through email. I jope she gets it! :o) My heart just goes out to them. I wish I could do more then I already have. Of course I'm still praying for them.
Ohhh...I think I'm going to have to end this. Boy I feel pretty yuckie! :o) Blah! So sorry if I don't make it to all of your journals, I'm working on it, even if I'm a day late. :o) I'll make it! :o) Thank all of you for your emails and comments! God bless all of you! :o)

I snagged this from Kathy

Tammy has had a wonderful idea. Where Krissy is staying she has only limited time at the computer. Bummer I know. So Tammy has created a journal. A journal for everyone to submit entries to. I am lousy at explaining things, so I "borrowed" the following from Tammy's Journal (Cyndy & John & Krissy)

But, I have an idea. Krissy has only a limited amout of time on computers where they are. There is no way she can visit all the journals. So, what do you think about me creating a journal just for them? We can call it John and Krissy or whatever you like. You can write to them in an email, send it to me and I will put it in the journal!

You can write as much as you want, every day if you like! Poems, the weather, jokes or just thinking of you. If you write an entry in your journal and would love for Krissy to see it, let me know and I will put it in the journal. Consider it like a newspaper. All the information and good thoughts in one place so she doesn't have to hop from one place to the other. It will be in one place and she and John can keep up with all of you and keep track of J-Land news.

I would love to start a tally of blood donated or whatever you did to help so they can see it themselves. There are many things we could do in the journal. A one stop shop for all the important stuff Krissy and John need. It will save Krissy time and can respond in comments and it will hopefully give them both a smile every day.

The new journal is here: The John & Krissy J-Land Gazette

If you have any questions concerning this please just give Tammy a holler (well don't actually holler, shoot her an email instead) here:


PS help spread the word OK?

Well....yesterday really wasn't much better then the past few days! I'm doing the best I can to rest and get better! :o) I haven't felt this bad in awhile! lol :o) When I'm sick...thats when everything will flare up! My fibro and ms is kicking my butt along with this cold/flu thingy I have! Geesh!
I sent out a card to Krissy and John. I've been praying for them as well as Simon and others in J-Land. I also asked my daughter if she could donate blood. I forgot...she just got a tattoo a month ago and she has to wait 6-12 months before she can donate again. :o( She donates blood regularly anyhow, so I knew to go to her. :o) Next time I see my son, I'll ask him as well. :o)

I got a call yesterday afternoon from my doctor. My blood tests came back already....and he's putting me on a stonger medicine for my cholesterol! :o( I guess the readings were very high again. Which once again puts me in the heart attack/stroke factor! He wants me to go on a low fat diet....which I've been on for some time now. So...I honestly don't know what to do. My daughter told me that what ever kind of diet that I am put on, she will eat the same way with me so I won't be alone doing it! :o) How sweet is that?! :o) I'm so proud of both my kids! :o) So...that was news that I was not expecting to hear! Back to the drawing board! lol :o) I'll just back track and see what and how I eat, and just go from there! :o)
I got up way too early again...I did however, get 3 1/2 hours of sleep! :o) More then I was expecting! :o) I didn't do anything yesterday...sure didn't feel up to it at all. My best friend called me and asked if she could come over...that was something else I wasn't :o) She works so many hours, I really don't see her that often anymore. But...She's off for a few days because she broke her foot while on the job!!! OUCHIE! Boy does her foot look horrible! I feel bad for her. Like she the both of us...we really make a pair! Because if one of us isn't hurt...the other one gets hurt! lol :o) When we're out because you'll want to get your camcorder out! We are like Lucy and Ethal! lol Too funny! :o)
My daughter came home early yesterday. I guessthe amusement park was closed! I couldn't believe it! So...she visited with her dad and other brother and sisters for awhile and came back home. This is August..who would have thought it would have been closed?! :o) Oh well! :o) There will be other days she can go. :o)
By the way...if there is anyone still playing the post card game, let me know....I still have a lot I can send out! :o)
I recieved a letter from Lisa yesterday! YAY! It finally arrived! :o) Thank you Lisa...I will write back to you! :o) Loved the pictures! :o)
Well...I'm going to go for now....have a great day! May God bless you all! Thanks for your emails and your comments! They help me through my days! :o)
