Wishing Katie and famita's coworker speedy recoveries!
I still have not heard from my friend. I tried to call her cell phone and get voicemail.
Thanks again guys for thinking of Katie. I'm really starting to worry, but still hope that no news is good news.
:) That's okay. "Bubbydoll" is just another way to say "babydoll" it's a nickname my boyfriend calls me. So I chose it for my forum name because it makes me smile and think of him.:lovestrucQuote:

He blamed his mom soley and said shes nutty like that.. I had to laugh, he doesn't see how lame it all makes him.
Gutmutter- No, he isn't Italian, he's part Scottish (on his dads side) and Norwegian( on his moms) very similar to my own heritages.
MRD: Prayers sent to assist with your friend Katie's recovery :grouphug
I just have to vent a bit. My evil twin sinister has been so demanding and ungrateful lately, I'm almost embarassed to be related to her. Everyone in my family, and even my sweetie, have been at her beck and call to help her move out of her apt. into her new (old) home. Even though we gave up our evenings, weekends, and holiday days to help her out, she never so much as bought a pizza for us. I brought bottled water, pop, cups, plates, utensils, low-alc. beer, pretzels, rice chips, apples, cantalope, and did food runs to get hamburgers with my Dad. I even brought my own food as I am on a diet and wanted to stick with it. My other sister brought some great Greek mini-pitas with a variety of wonderful home-made dips which were a lifesave more than once.
I had to make my Dad and Mom stop working and eat something and drink something as my sinister was just cracking her whip hour after hour. They are both senior citizens and were looking pale, tired, and hurting. We spent more than an hour taking apart her BBQ, which was at my place, and bungled it up so it would make a mark in her truck, washed it up, and re-set it up on her new deck, so she could enjoy it right away. My BIL and sweetie moved 3 pieces of slate from my sister's pool table, from a basement into a truck, and down to her basement. Along with the other parts of the pool table so she could save money. Those things are monstrously heavy! Everyone worked very hard with little or no breaks as my twin sinister's "schedule" was ridiculous, to say the least.
I know that she is still getting things in order, but would it be out of line to mention to her that she should plan a "thank-you/housewarming" for my parents, sister and BIL? One that includes food and drink for them? I honestly don't care about me. But she barely even said a "thank you" and basically said "now get out of my house so I can enjoy it."
What do you say to someone like that? : ohno
How about, "Why does everyone kiss your butt to get along with you?" :shrug
How about, "Do you get dizzy being the center of everyone's universe?" :shrug
I may steal that, but maybe modify it a little--Do you get dizzy watching the world revolve around you?Quote:

You know, the entire family worked non-stop to get you moved, so what day and time should we be there for our thank you dinner?
And PS, that would be the LAST time any of you should help her out. Who asks people to help them move and then doesn't at LEAST provide food and drink to the helpers? I'm sorry, but that's just rude and taking advantage of people. Especially of family.
And remember this, just because she's family, doesn't mean you have to do everything they tell you either.
I'm 46, my brother is 59 and he's been upset with me for the past couple years because I haven't done what he thinks I should do. Oh well, it's his problem. Last time I looked, I was an adult and he wasn't giving me any money, so I dont' have to answer to him at all.
Today would be my daughter's 15th birthday. I don't normally get emotional anymore because it has been 15 years but for some reason this year it hit me. Tonight I'm supposed to go to a Naughty Lady party at a neighbor's house and I'm really trying to get out of the funk so I can have a good time and laugh.
Buglover - it hit you because it is a milestone number. I am thinking of you.
