Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Duane got locked in the hallway bath around 1:30 this morning, and I didn't hear the banging until 4:34. He didn't lock the door, but it looks like the spring broke, and I had to take a metal ruler to where the door joined the frame. It locked by itself yesterday, but I thought if it just had a shot...

I'm bad... I said I was done with the statue buying, and I was - really, truly - and then I saw this https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81pBySAJMTL._SY879_.jpg Our Lady of the Apocalypse! The badass Virgin Mary straight from the Book of Revelation! *squee!* She's made of resin, she's n...

Re: We Are Hobbits of the Shire

Stew the Blue Pony (for all the beloved animals, and for Rose, a vegetarian) I once had a pony, whose coat was bright blue. And my old grandma, she named him Stew. chorus "Stew, Stew, Stew the pony." Why he was named that, I never knew. "Stew, Stew, Stew the pony." Though that's ...

Re: My dear Joon...

It's been insane... The Honey's on that Ingrezza, and all day long, I get he's better until he says he's not. I have never liked autism. I can remember back when Mike was a baby, people telling me to make 'friends' with it. Seriously? It makes everything worse because your communication is jammed, a...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Oh, Paddy! :hug: Keep in touch, okay? As soon as you're able, let me know. Honey, this is just ridiculous - it's not fair. Plan for the worst, but hope for the best - that's how I've gotten through the last 37 years. And I have no doubt, that should it be cancer, its ass will be well and truly kicked.

Re: My dear Joon...

The weekly shop fetchings are becoming a way of life. But I'm going to switch cards after this week. It's not going to work to use the Master constantly, though I think it's safer. It's just going to be so expensive doing that. This morning I switched and made the debit the preferred. It's a wonderf...

Re: My dear Joon...

Michael came by yesterday. We went to Devotions, and tried to get Duane a vanilla frosty, thinned with 7 ounces of 1% milk. It might have worked if his tall glass wasn't so well-insulated. I could not get anything thin enough to suck up through the straw - which came with the thing, and is pretty wi...

Re: My dear Joon...

Saint Francis is here. The photos didn't do him justice. Most of the time they don't, no matter how many they take, but as part of the stigmata, there's a wound over his heart that cuts right through the black habit. His right hand is clutching a cross against his chest, but two of his fingers are e...

Re: My dear Joon...

Poor Amy. The Honey can't pet her like he could before all this. He's doing it too hard, and you can tell by her face that it hurts. So she's been a bit clingy to me, which I don't really mind except that I'm so distracted these days. Now I think he's got an impaction, the GP's gone for the week, an...

Re: My dear Joon...

A few things... I've decided not to attend mass anymore. I've been having such a hard time, trying to get them to just let me be. And the worst thing is this belief that once baptized, you're in for life. It doesn't matter that you were a virtual newborn, maybe up to four months old (I was three mon...

Re: My dear Joon...

The Honey tried to eat again this evening - just a cracker with some peanut butter and honey. He couldn't chew it, so I made the soup and, once it was a bit broken up, he washed it down with that. Tomorrow I call for the psych appointment. I hope we can get him in quick. There's meds to pick up, too...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

:hug: I remember when my mom died. It gets easier, but you'll never stop missing her. Since she lived so far away, it was easy to forget sometimes, and I'd be out shopping. She had wanted to get a rattan end table, and I saw one. So I go over to see how much it is, and as I'm picking up the sales ta...

Re: My dear Joon...

It's just after 1 o'clock and I can't sleep... What probably helped the situation was that the Honey walks in just as I'm winding down to show me that he took his night pills in the morning. So, I'm going through the lot and making him a dose of bedtime prescriptions. He's finally settled in, but I'...

Re: My dear Joon...

Blessed Solanus Casey was the topic at Saturday's All Franciscan Day. He was born Bernard Francis Casey in Oak Grove, Wisconsin, on November 25, 1870. During his lifetime, he was known as a wonderworker - he would tell people that they would receive healing and they did. He was a solace to the sick,...
