Re: The Rumpus Room


Birdz, I saw the story of your release and recapture on Facebook.... I'm hoping they were able to get everything stabilized and that you are back home -- or will be very soon!

I think my heart just stopped.

*whew*



I think about my stroke of good fortune every year on 9/11, Lis. I was not happy about leaving early, but I am eternally grateful that we did.

Thanks, Lis.

I need to head to sleepy-by-land after getting my newspaper article off for review today.

I do love this group of people. We have gone through a lot of rough times together, and I am grateful for being able to hang around on this ball of dust with all of you for so many years.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Back home again, hopefully for good this time.

One of the prime suspects for my low sodium problem is one of my blood pressure meds. My Valsartan pills also contain a diuretic. I’ve been taking them for years with no apparent ill effects - until now. The hospital doctor phoned in to my pharmacy a script for Valsartan without diuretic. Meanwhile, previous advice to restrict salt intake is now null and void.

We are anticipating unneeded rain from Florence, but without damaging winds. As it is, the Potomac River is at flood stage from recent rains, so there’s concern about flooding issues region-wide. I don’t live in a flood plain, but could be affected by road closures.

Remembering Vicki and others today. The night before 9/11, Mr. Queue and I were flying home on American Airlines from Boston's Logan Airport to San Francisco. After spending several days getting our first-born settled into his first apartment in Boston prior to his sophomore year in college, we had spent several more days on Cape Cod, as a belated 25th anniversary observation.

We originally had planned to leave Boston the morning of 9/11 on a flight that ended up hitting the World Trade Center, but Mr. Queue decided we should leave the night before because he wanted to get back to work.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and we took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.



I had posted one minute following this one from you, so I'm just now seeing it.

If I had ever known this, somehow I forgot it, although I can't imagine how I could forget such a thing. Thank heavens for Mr Queue's workaholic tendencies!

I hope you're home for good, too, Birdz. And I hope Florence stays far away from you.

Me too, MsR. It looks that way right now, but that’s not good for the good people of Georgia.

I slept like a baby in my own bed last night.

Coffee, Tanya.

Re: The Rumpus Room


I'm glad you're home again, Birdz. Learning to eat salt again is interesting. I had a slight bout with low sodium, which was discovered a week ago when I finally saw a doctor about my lethargy. She told me to eat a lot of salt, so I spent a while at the grocery store looking for things that had high sodium content instead of things that have low content. I've been munching salted almonds and feeling much better. Since reading your post, I'm wondering whether my blood pressure meds have caused the problem.

I'm sorry about your problem with walking, Lis. I hope you can get that fixed. You have all these terrific things in your life, and you need to be able to enjoy them without suffering.

Bonjour!


Coffee, Tanya.

It's 66 and partly cloudy here at the farm. When I thought my large tomato plants had gone South on me, I got 3 small ones yesterday to put in the window to finish ripening. There may be more.

I'm undecided as to what to do today. I guess the main thing is figuring out what to eat for supper. I can use some salad fixings, so I suppose I could hit the store. I still have some chicken in the freezer that I can pull out, so that will save a trip. I can go tomorrow.

Good morning, all. We have 54F with light showers, heading for a high of 64F.

I don't have anything on my agenda today. I guess I'll probably just knit.

Coffee, please, Tanya.

Re: The Rumpus Room


I had forgotten about the Queues and 9/11. I forget a lot.

I got 8 hours last night but still was sleepy and took a nap after breakfast. I have to use my cane to get around now, or at least I think that I should. The stuff with my legs can make them do things that I don't have planned, so I take no chances. Good thing I've got a follow-up with the pain clinic coming up in a bit.

It's a good thing that I usually proofread my posts as I go along. I write terribly.

Re: The Rumpus Room


59 degrees, cloudy, and slightly breezy. It has been sprinkling just a little this morning.

I took the bull by the hand and spent three hours clearing out my clothes closets, packing boxes to take to the Garage of Blessings after they open at 11. Needed Gatorade along the way, probably from the stress of deciding what to keep and what to let go. Some of the things I'm letting go are things I have kept time after time as I cleared out the closets in earlier years. Who can predict what she is going to need a day or two after she gets rid of it? Who can predict that in the next six weeks she will lose 10 pounds and be able to wear the things she's been saving (until now) in hopes that she would lose 10 pounds?

The easiest way to get rid of something is to convince myself that I look ridiculous in it. That happened twice today.

I should follow your good example, Belle. I've been telling myself to sort clothes I'm never going to wear again and take them to Joseph's Closet.

I've been going through closets looking for things that I either don't or can't wear anymore to see if the sons of a friend can get some good life that's still left out of them.

Thanks, Belle. With so many very serious things people are facing, I don't really have the right to whine. But I do get down about it at times. emoticon

Welcome home, Birdz! I'm so glad you're enjoying sleeping in your own bed! emoticon

I seriously need to think about cleaning out closets.... And I have a few "piles" of things in various rooms that are waiting for me to do something with them. Gotta do it.

Same here, Lis. Piles here, piles there. Now that I’m not going to the office daily, I have some perfectly good dresses that could be used by someone. We have a “thrift shop” in town, operated by the local churches, and I understand that people of limited means sometimes get clothes there. The shop will take whatever I give them.
