    Cool Party room- a place for fun, pity, commiserating, or any other thing you come up with

    It took me a long time to get back on this site so I hope others find their way back soon. Our son leaves in two days for college and then we will have an empty nest. My doctor reduced my testosterone injections to once a month but I am really having a big reduction in energy so I think a blood test is coming up to see where my levels are now. I hate having lost days every other day or maybe two days between.
    Hurry back everyone, I hope everyone is doing well.

    Hi Mark
    Just popped on here quickly. Heading to sleep. Been on vacation in florida for the last 2 weeks...being way too lazy for my liking...lol Have one more week here. Tried BT a few times but we were down. Missed you all.

    How are you holding up? Definetly need some bloodwork done!! Make sure tne dr does it. How is Tyrell doing? Is he excited? Are you and Penny feeling sad?

    I missed several weeks on here so update me on whats been going on. I will try to check in more, typing on touchpads stink!!!

    Things are ok....kids are well. Been dealing with too much arm stuff. Been having pins and needles on top left forearm and thimb. Now its spread to pointer finger, thumb, forearm and also upper arm. Its truly annoying and comes and goes throughout the day. No rhym or reason that i can find. Neuro said at last visit it was from carpel tunnel. Thats when it eas just the top of forearm and thumb. I doubt tbats it but what the hell do I know? Whatever it is, it is spreading & not all that comfy...so much fun!!! I dont think i want to be a spiney anymore....can someone tell me where this bus stops???? GGRRR!!!

    Ok enough blubbering...i need some sleep. Very happy to see BT again. Night all!!

    Brigitte, good to see you made over on the other side and made it back to the room. Sorry to hear that your arms are causing you more trouble. I had the problem last year and a NS said carpal tunnel but I knew it wasn't that as I haven't done anything to cause it while my cervical spine has enough going on to cause the symptoms. Stick to your guns as you know more than you think and certainly know your body better than the doctor.

    Tyrel is ready to get out on his own although he hasn't gotten packed yet despite leaving early Friday morning. Penny is sad but I just view it as part of growing up. Tyrel and I have a relationship that will cover the miles and it will be nice to have an empty nest. It will be nice to get the house in shape the way Penny and I want.

    Not much else going on as the site was down for about a week and it took me that long to get registered once again. Enjoy the rest of your vacation as you will have plenty of time to get busy once you come back home.

    Hello everyone,

    Brigitte, sounds like you had a heavenly vacation; good for you hon. Also noticed in replying here all messages aren't included below like before, unless I pressed wrong 'reply'.........can't get my 'faces' to work either. All pages from BT come up w/errors on page. Take some fine tuning yet maybe.

    Glad things going well for you too Mark. Two person house coming up very soon. Our temps have cooled off, hope they have for everyone else. Haven't seen the hawk for a few weeks, heard but not seen. It's growing up, not a baby anymore.

    Hope everyone is well, stays well, gets well....talk again soon now that I've found home again.........geez, can't get smilies to work, nor does the 'more' work.......miss those little critters<G>LOL love to all, kat :)

    I thought I would stop in and see if we had anyone new stop by but I guess it will be a slow process. We are working on getting my son packed for leaving tomorrow morning. Thankfully he is like his dad that he doesn't need much to be happy so there isn't a lot to do. I did get him a new spare tire and emergency kit for the trips back and forth. Penny has taken the day off to be around on his last day at home. We are just finishing up his laundry and then he needs to finish packing his clothes.

    I just dozed a couple times last night so I am running on low today. I wish I could take a nap but I can't calm down enough to drop off to sleep, maybe later. Time to get back to the packing and checking the list off.

    Ah all the messages are showing up now below....won't have to strain my brain so hard; still can't get smilies to work, still have errors on all pages.

    Brig, sure hope your arms feel better, forgot to mention that last time here; Mark our mailings must of just crossed each others<G> Sounds like you're both enjoying packing up for Tyrel. Adventure time.

    You mentioned sleep time.......I still do that at least once a week......a day gone. Except a day last week? I had a worse stroke, numbed right side; cleared up in about an hour. Never had it happen but had another one just as bad right after 1st one. Thought, ok God, I'm ready if it's my time.......but still here. I slept for next 2 days straight. Up once for bathroom but like in coma, couldn't wake me if you tried. SO just checked to see if I was breathing. Have had minis since but haven't slept a day away that I recall.

    I've started hiding things......not on purpose. Brought in bag of groceries; always put them on counter, this one I put in garbage. More like I put things in odd places. So afraid one day it's going to be my wedding rings. When SO was in hospital he took off his ring, I wrapped it in kleenex, put in purse. While there I emptied purse of dirty kleenex, dumped his ring in trash, gone forever......he got a new one but never wears it............:( I feel naked if I forget mine. Sometimes I forget earrings, feel funny w/o them too......but getting to not care.

    He's leaving Sunday, back late Wed. Of all people my grandgirls about me staying alone<G> So sweet. Sunday their mom and girls are picking me up, going to their house for afternoon, supper. Kim's calling every day, have to explain to her if I don't answer phone, I'm sleeping day away which SO already is used to.

    Someone wants to change the smiley faces back to old ones.....think these are kinda cute, for a change; now if I could use them that would be even better.

    We got a new laptop, just sitting here, no one really inclined to put it together.....plus have to figure out how to get excel over to the new one. This puter has been giving us trouble. Need lots of cord so I can sit in bed, maybe, 'talk' from there<G> Won't get hooked up til after SO gets back from trip, that weekend, maybe.....nobody in a rush for that either. He's never in rush for haircut, think it's been since xmas.......of course, business trip, hair cut Sat<G> Even talked him into slight comb over for his bald spot at top of head <G>LOL

    Take care all, talk again soon!! hugs, kat

    Kat it is good to see you found your way back. We just need a few more to find their way here and it will feel like home again. Are you excited about the start of football season? I have already started watching the preseason games. You got the smiley face working and it will just take some time to adjust to the changes but many of the things are the same.

    Tonight is our first night as empty nesters. Both of us are having a bad night as our sleep has been messed up. I really want to get back on a schedule again. Tyrel is set up in his room and spending his first night at college. He needs to find a couple of friends and start enjoying college life. Right now he has a room to himself but he is assigned a roommate but he hasn't shown up yet. It will really feel different around here as I will have the house alone to myself until Penny comes home. I will be spending the next week getting my wood shop set up. I have some limits because the kids stuff is still here until they finally close on their house. I will be able to get my tools in the room and get most of it set up. Sleep well everyone and I hope to be asleep soon.
