Short Update

WOW! I am doing two posts in one day and I just realized that this is my 100th post. Not that it is a huge deal, but I am posting more and more, and it is starting to add up. YAY me! How excited are you all? (snicker, just kidding, snicker)
I finally kicked myself in the behind to get myself started on that room. I got half the rug up. That really is a feat for me. I have arthritis in my hips and a slight problem with my back. So doing anything other but sitting a spell, walking a spell, and standing a spell is hard labor. I was down on my hands and knees on and off for the last few hours. I have moved what "furniture" is in there over to the bare floor side in anticipation of what I will accomplish next Monday. (My next day off) The part of the floor that didn't receive water damage (not as bad as I thought at first), and the part that they brushed glue on to hold down the padding are really the only bad spots on the floor. Of course that is quite a bit of area. I really wish they hadn't used glue. I may be able to get it up. It is kind of a shame to cover the hardwood. I wish I knew I could do it justice to patch up the warped spots, cause I would just do that. I'd save a lot of money. We'll see, I will ask some of my customers that know more about this sort of thing.
That's it. I need to go get cleaned up for my class. A friend who I haven't spoken to for a wile just called to chat a little. It was good to hear from her. We made a date to get together next Monday afternoon for coffee. I got friends coming out of the woodwork! Feels good.

HEY YOU!!!!! Congrats on the 100th post--that is TOO a big deal. And, even better is the fact that you have friends coming out of the wood(work) that is not as badly damaged as was first thought--YAY, YAY, YAY!

I would be remiss if I didn't remind you of how much I admire you. Really. I think you are incredible; with so much knowledge and the drive to put your knowledge to use. I have arthritis and back issues, too, so I know how it can feel--not very good. Now is it just me, or do you seem so much happier lately? That is what I am getting from your posts; you seem like you don't have the same weight on your shoulders, and that you are happier and more relaxed, and enjoying all of the good people in your life. Isn't it just amazing how we get the people we need when the time is right? Your oldest daughter sounds like such a great person and I'm so glad that the two of you get to spend time together in your ceramics class. Good for you and Lena!!!

(((((HAPPY, HAPPY FOR YOU HUGS)))))

Okay, excuse me! Where are the "I Love You"'s? I am very happy to know I can show up on your doorstep and you wouldn't kick me to the curb, but for right now I NEED my "I Love You"'s from Claudia. Unless you don't love me anymore; in which case, I'll be needing to know why--HAHAHA! And just so you know? The worst day in CA is probably better than a good day here :)! BRING BACK THE LOVE!!!!! Hehehehe...
