nice size today. And nice first words :) Started with a nice drink and something good to eat.

How are you Sprite?
3:47 am
sprite

seriously stressed out. Lots of sadness about the thing with my father and yesterday my hubby told me he wants us to move to a boat. Living ship. Don't know the word. We are going to make an appointment to look at it today.
3:50 am
lynxxx

Oh Sprite, thats a lot on your plate. Houseboat is probably the word you are looking for, don't knw how that would work out with the kids - ??. Did you make contact w. your father after the photos arrived (aside from your letter) or are you still mulling over it?
3:52 am
herinfernallady

Sprite i don't know what happened yesturday its ok no need to rehash. Take care
3:52 am
sprite

only the letter, lynxxx, which is all I am prepared to do. His letter showed he is still the same manipulating bully he always was, so it is stupid to think letting him back into my life will be a positive thing. Guess I am mourning losing what I never had. Stupid hah.
3:53 am
sprite

and I have been forced to move about 20 times in my life. I am petrified of moving. Well, that is how I am. How are you guys doing today?

You have a wonderful husband & kids Sprite, you are missing nothing!
3:55 am
herinfernallady

Sprite why do you have to move? Does your father own the house?
3:55 am
sprite

so true, lynxxx! That is what I am telling myself. We built something my father will never have. I know I am stupid to be so sad. But I am.
3:56 am
herinfernallady

Hugs lots of hugs sprite
3:56 am
sprite

Lady: no, but part of my hubby's burnout is caused by money problems. He wants to move to a cheaper home. It is all because I cannot work anymore.
3:56 am
herinfernallady

Oh ok. I understand.
3:57 am
herinfernallady

Money issues really suck.
3:58 am
sprite

they do, especially if someone cannot see things are working out anyway. My love is stressed out over it, no matter how often I show him we are doing ok. Not great, but ok.
3:58 am
lynxxx

I've seen a few shows on people who undertake houseboat living. Its looks quite difficult and with many many things to consider like where to moor it and the cost of that. Maybe there are other options you can consider also. I so hope this issue can be quickly overcome - if only for your sake {{hugs}}
3:58 am
herinfernallady

Ok is good

True about the houseboat living issues. But how to reason with a man whose dream it is to live on the water?

I am right with you, lynxxx! Now only to convince my love.
4:02 am

Lady: not at all easy. That is partly why I agreed to come looking at it. Perhaps if he sees how tough it is for me to just get on and off, he will realise it is not the best way to go.
4:03 am

I'd hate to veto it, though I will if I have to. It is much better if we can work it out together.

My summer job was on Isle Royale, an island in the middle of Lake Superior. The closest part of the mainland was Thunder Bay, Ontario. Folks were getting homesick, cabin fever etc. and although fireworks were not allowed on the Island, our boss agreed to take us by boat to a spot where we could, allegedly, see the Canada Day fireworks in Thunder Bay....

So off we go, into the middle of Lake Superior. The western sky was beautiful and it turned into a hundred different colors as we headed further into the lake.
10:52 am
harpjane

Eventually we could see little pink and orange "dots" on the horizon, the fireworks at Thunder Bay. Everyone was straining to see these little poofs, and they were completely ignoring the beautiful sunset....
10:52 am
lexleeanne

d's done
10:53 am
harpjane

As the evening continued, the sunset faded into Northern Lights, then a beautiful set of bright stars. But everyone was still trying to see the little teeny fireworks....

BR-r... it is so good to see that your computer did not die... you had mentioned some weeks back that you might disappear altogether if your machine did not improve. Good news that you are still amongst the living.

BabbleRabble

I thought I would try Steinbeck's mantra for a bit .. to the stars on the wings of a pig
11:41 am
Aloyisius

Am fine, Scarlet.. traveling a wee bit too much this year.. mostly family related. Seems our fledglings have all located out west... gheez.. Calif, NM and AZ.. with airfares and the economy and all, we have gently notified them all that perhaps a well-planned family reunion in a convenient spot during a NON holiday time would be a better alternative in the future..
11:41 am
caitlyn

You have had more than enough to worry about Scarlet but yes it was my bday on Sat
11:41 am
Aloyisius

Happy Belated B-day, caitlyn!

11:50 am
caitlyn

Although there was no music in a hot and sweaty Tescos shop today
11:51 am
Scarlet

There was another one that I just loved, but cannot remember the exact quote: I want to slip on a banana peel when I'm all used up in my 90's with a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other... actually the quote was better than my ancient memory, but it was cute!! Yea for Funky Chicken dancers worldwide!!
11:51 am

Well, some places say Angela Monet, others say George Carlin, and yet others say other people. (The author, that is)

There are three cu7/36 - the easiest one to find is the last - plural hot Indian food. The penultimate one is the same, save for the final letter which moves one back in the alphabet. The first cu7/36 is plural cu6/24 - it ends in the past tense of 'sprint'.

im a Halloween gal, personally...
but fireworks are always fun too. :)
12:35 pm

Loathe Christmas. Over-blown stressful days with very rude people for weeks before and after. Ptth. Halloween is fab too, I suppose. Except for the egging/TPing/violence part. Hooligans, I say!
12:35 pm
Uniquity

I'm such an old lady :)

i enjoy christmas, but thats probably because (1) i always get the most heartfelt gifts, regardless of price (high or low) and (2) i shop online!
heh

it helps that the BF and i actually celebrate the christianity of it all as well!
12:37 pm

to you too, gadget!
12:39 pm
Uniquity

*Declining religious aspect of holidays altogether* :) And the cost...pahoo, the cost. Lack of sincerity, the feeling of "having" to give gifts to certain people. I prefer to celebrate only with those I wish to spend time with. I love that part, but the rest I could leave.
12:39 pm
EvaNadine

im with you on all counts, uni!

1:06 pm

i just wikipedia-ed the whole smarties vs. rockets thing, it says that the reason they are marketed as rockets in Canada is too avoid confusion with the Nestle Smarties, which is the European chocolate candy

1:11 pm
SeanS

sorry for the delay (i'm at work) but Uni, I'm pretty sure that the European Smarties were around first, which is why they had to market them as Rockets in Canada... because Smarties already existed for you.
1:11 pm
hurshy

mine too, all but actor prompts
1:12 pm
Uniquity

This is just silly. Then American Smarties should be called rockets as well. I wish that 'name brands' didn't make everything so complicated. But thanks Sean! I was way too lazy to research.

Howdy, Aloy!
1:14 pm
SeanS

well, see they made them in American, not knowing about the chocolate candies under the same name. then when they went to market the candy in Canada, they were like "oh, you already have smarties... what can we call them?" hence the difference... americans already knew them as smarties, which is why they didn't change the name for us
1:14 pm
