A perfect place for giving away well loved items to others.. My move in specialist showed his collection of Rivieraware....I found my four last pieces to give him...More joy in giving. Going out to lunch is better than a trip to Paris...to clear my mind and lift my soul. Stand by Me
So many friends are calling and coming by to help. I am indeed blessed.
Tomorrow morning at 8 am, the AC folks are installing my new unit..Prices have gone up 50 % since last year. And, availability is scarce. People are baking in the sun with no AC for months until parts come, etc. Tomorrow's unit for me is costing $16,000. Can you believe it?? And I am grateful to get it...They gave it to me cuz I am an old lady with asthma....Somethings have no price tag.. Life as we know it has forever changed. Tomorrow morning at 6 am, my daughter and her family come in on the red eye from Portland, Oregon for two weeks to help me... Amazing Grace
Today, my beloved Stitch went to live with my grandchildren...It was with great excitement that they carried him off. Having Stitch will ease their transition to a new place to call home after 8.5 years with me. Here he is...getting to know you...Stitch meets new puppy, 3 other cats and a ferret ...hmmm

My stress level is so high that I am craving chocolate...OMG.. I would make grandma's chocolate fudge recipe but it is too late and I would have to do dishes.
AC still out.
My son and his woman friend came by tonight to get some of his things out of the garage.
Chocolate triggers....AC gone. Realtor coming tomorrow with my house such a mess still.
Red wine makes the feeling that chocolate should be next.
Feeling hopeless that the house will ever be ready.
Missing my man and my mother..
Missing my feisty youth!!!
Excitement that my girl is coming in two days.
The medic alarm went off two times in my house tonight.
The feeling that what I see is not reality. Instead it is sugar coated especially for me.
Speaking of sugar. ????? Hmmm
Good night...May we all have chocolate dreams...xo

OMG So where is Mama now, when I need her???
Tonight I spilled melted butter for my popcorn on my favorite shirt??? Who does that?? From the microwave, right down the front of me...
Stitch, my favorite cat is acting out. He misses Boo and the kids...OMG..
My only recliner that I can relax in broke today.???
Just when I thought I would calm down with a movie, the TV broke...My genius mind eventually pushed the extension electrical button and bingo..It was fixed..
Jackie came by with a Subway..Her visit cheered the day!! My sister did a Goodwill de-stashing in the hot and heavy house. She is a miracle worker.
I just cannot do all this alone, without my husband...Oh, he has been dead 7 years. I guess I am fooling myself. I am doing it.
I have friends I can share my despair with. My daughter and family are coming on Wed for two weeks to save me. They do not realize I am hanging by a thread....50 wt, but still!!
