merry merry christmas eve everyone today is our first christmas without so many in our family started on april 15th when we lost my father in law. he is sorely missed and always will be next we lost my dh uncle in september i don;t remember the exact date as we were not told he was even sick until after he died(he lived in michigan) then dh lost his cousin michael to cancer. he battled this disease for 10 long years rest in peace all of you. then november 17th my sister in yarn from another mother(and dad) lost her son tim to his battle of a brain injury may he also rest in peace and stop teasing your sister timmie with all the things happening without explanation we all know its you lol

then a week ago we lost merwyn my beloved bambina kitty how i miss her still

ok enough sad things this is suppose to be a happy time of year i wish all of you happy holidays wether it be christmas hanukkah Kwanzaa or any other ones i missed(and im sure there is and i apologize to my readers)

the new year i hope will bring better times for all of us the recession this country has been seems to be getting worse instead of better yet our government seems to sugar coat it

today i will be busy wrapping gifts and getting dinner ready for the kids to come over we are starting new traditions and hope that they work out.

my wishes for all of you is to have a wonderful holiday for those who are in pain i wish you a day free of it those who are depressed may your mood be lifted doing something for others and not thinking about how bad things are they are bad but brooding about it does not help believe me i know been there sooooooooooooooo many times.maybe you can cheer someone elses life up a bit go visit a nursing home and sing christmas songs help someone by giving them your place in line or if your able to maybe help pay for their groceries even telling someone to have a good day can bring a smile to their face and that should cheer YOU up too remember tomorrow is another day and while your life may not be a bed of roses remember there are others out there much worse than you., ask a mother who has just opened her door to see a military chaplin there or a child who's parent has died or even someone who has lost a pet it effects people different and this time of year is difficult for so many people .
people out of work, without money to make christmas for their children there are thousands of things going on

remember though that you are special to someone, me if your reading my blog make a comment should you want to i don't sensor them tooo much(i will not add swear words so please don't leave them) i just really want to say that you all are special to me god bless you and keep you in his care. love you all merry christmas to all and to all a good morning i know im a smart alec bewaahahahahahahahaha love vicki

rest in peace my beloved merwyn

tonight i had to do something that was one of the hardest things i have ever had to do in my entire life. i had to take my beloveded merwyn to the vet to put her to sleep, she was one of the bravest strongest kitties i have ever ever saw in my life. let me tell you about my bambina the one i called cara mia bambina the love of my life.

it all started back in august of 1995, 1995 had been a hard year had lost my beloved grandfather on july 4th he was 95 years old lived a long good life but of course that did not change the fact that my grandfather the one i adored was dead it was about the 3rd week of august when my little girl came in the house and said mama there is kittens in the wood pile. i said really? thinking it was a stray cat who was just visiting, but it was not. it was my bambina and her brother boo along with another little black kitty who was so close to merwyn that they may have been twins.

we watched these adorable kittens romp around the yard during the months of sept and october. i noticed the mama kitty had moved them around alot but they felt safe in our yard as we had no dogs all of us enjoyed watching these little ones at play figuring eventually they would move on as ferrill cats do, and mama and one of the black ones did. we had not seen the babies for a couple days so figured they were gone. it was the day before thanksgiving, my job was to get the turkey cleaned and ready to roast the next day had just finished the giblets and was putting my pies in the oven(you all know how busy the day before a holiday can be) it was a wicked night out cold snowing and just outright nasty windy and i had clothes drying in the dryer as i always was doing laundry every day that day was no different until i heard this little meow like a baby kitten. i thought how odd,so i turned the back porch light and looked and there was merwyn and boo sitting under the dryer vent trying to get warm(was soooo cold in the 20's with snow and blowing made it very cold) so i said to them where is your mama little ones, the both looked at me so trusting and just meowed. i said are you hungry? they meowed i took that as a yes. i of course had no cat food only pancakes i had made for dinner. they snarfed them down and huddled together. so had dh go out to the patio and put a box with some blankets in it for them and they stayed in there as long as no one was around. come spring i said ok they have to go or we have to get them spayed or nuetered. well the kids loved them by then and so did i hehe so was the later that happened. eventually i was able to pet them and they became our babies. over the years they became more and more friendly towards us, boo who was merwyns brother was much more friendly than merwyn she was always very reserved. but when she loved you she was loyal to a T. in 1999 there was a attempt on this man to steal boo my son caught him and threw him off our property. in 2000 after a severe car accident this man took advantage of the fact i could not stop him and he was able to come in to the yard and take boo right away from our property. we were devistated we tried to find him but never did. merwyn went missing several times she was trying to find her brother. we never did get him back. then as we went thru all the things dealing with my injuries merwyn became very ill in november of 2001. she had developed a terrible infection in her plura cavity(chest) the vets told us we should put her down she had actually stopped breathing and they got her heart going again and her breathing, they told me she had a 5% chance to live i SAID PLEASE HELP HERso she had her surgery to drain it they put a drain tube in her and off to the vet we went that would do it, she spent about 5 days in the hospital and then we got to bring her home right after thanksgiving, 5 years after she came into our lives we almost lost her, it took alot of vet visits antibotics and alot of loving care but my little cara mia pulled through.

merwyn will always be in our lives with the pictures of her we have to the memories of our special kitty. this cat was amazing. a couple of years ago i was looking for her as was dinner time and she had not come to eat. i found her outside the garage door staring straight at it and then running back to me as if to say mom mom somethings wrong, there was the hot water heater was leaking and about ready to explode , its a natural gas heater so god knows what would have happened had it exploded but it would not have been good the tank was bulging and already had developed a big crack in it we were able to open the drain and get the water out of there thanks to our watch kitty. recently she started coming inside as she was not as well as she had been before that she hated being inside loved being outside in the air sniffing it and loved to lay in the sunshine i took her outside the day before yesterday all wrapped up as she was cold her poor little body was shutting down and she wanted to spend as much time with us as she could, merwyn was a smart cat she knew when things happened or were happening she loved laying on the mat i bought at it is basicly a space blanket covered with fleece it helped warm her. i will miss merwyn the rest of my life as i do boo, but she will live on in all of us. that brave little soul had more courage and spunk than anyone i know human or animal, i hope i can be that way but im not that brave. rest in peace little one i know your with those who have gone before and waiting for us to catch up i love you bambina with all of my heart love mama

nothing makes sense anymore

as i sit here writing this post i wonder why nothing makes much sense anymore, i'm refering to the senseless killings of 4 of our police officers on sunday november 29th 2009 about 8:30 am officers Ronald Owens,Mark Renninger,Greg Richards and Tina Griswold of the lakewood washington police department were gunned down in cold blood by a convicted felon Marice Clemmons . this coward went into the coffee shop where these brave officers were sitting having breakfast and getting ready to go on shift. and without any care of remorse shot and killed these officers for no reason at all. The lives of these officers families have been forever destroyed by this coward and those who helped him Marice Clemmons was shot and killed by a seattle police officer early tuesday morning (12/01/2009)

my heart and prayers go out to the families of these fallen officers.
i am making comfortghans for each of the families if anyone wants to help me please contact me, i am using worsted weight yarn as i am allergic to wool and can not assemble it and making the comfortghans in 12 in sq in red/white and blue or any of the variations any pattern is welcome anyone who wants to help please add your name to the sq so they may know how many people have helped make this possible. i myself can not do this alone and am hoping those of you my friends who do still read this blog will find it in your heart to help, i know is a busy time of year and with christmas less than a month away i know it is alot to ask, please help me make this possible for the families of these fallen heros. god bless all of you those who can and will help and those who are not able to but pray for the families anyways or send good thoughts if you do not pray i am not a judge of anyone elses belief and welcome all who want to do this for them. i will not publish your names here if you don;t want leave me a message in the area and we will get together thank you from the bottom of my heart i need 80 sq am making them 4 across and 5 down once again thank you love vicki

morning all

hey ya all thought would stop in and say hi, not much going on right now listening to some crosby stills nash and young. i soooo enjoyed that concert last week the kids got us the tickets to for our anniversary, i love their music and had a great time

not up to much, thought i would see what ya all have in your idea patch to make for christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate, i honestly have no idea yet what to make for most of my family, for my dd i am thinking of knitting a sweater and if i am going to do it need to get my rear in gear almost done with the scarf i posted about earlier.

i am thinking of selling this for about 25.00 considering the work and the amount of money the yarn cost so will see i might not sell it and keep it instead or give it as a gift.

chatted last night for a bit with some friends on facebook and yahoo, i know everyone is pretty busy this time of year. i know i am worn out for sure like last night i feel asleep with the computer on my lap hehe oh well didn't hurt anything so all was well.

im excited i chatted with my friend joyce and she is sending me a package for my birthday and some other goodies she had for me i can;t wait to see she always sends me the best things

talked to my friend nancy please include her in your prayers she has been diagnosed with breast cancer and can use all the good thoughts and prayers she can use. especially now when she is away from her family she needs her friends more than ever. love you sweetie hang in there it WILL get better remember what we talked about.

officially today am going to start going though my yarns so i can post them here for sale as i need to get rid of some and fast, shipping will be actual cost and handling with be posted and is not included in the price of the item i may combine postage for those who are ordering alot of yarn(you will love the prices hehe) so as soon as i can get going will be posting the yarn here may be tomorrow though before i get it all done. got to think on that also will be posting some patterns. hope that you all will see something you want and we can make a deal on it i promise to get started asap. if you see something and want it let me know and i will mark it pending and hold that for 24 hours but only if you are serious about buying it as by me placing a hold on it and then you don't want it i lose money. if this happens more than once won't hold it for you anymore i'm sorry about having to post all this but in past have been burned by people saying they want it then backing out at the last minute and i was not a happy girl hehe anyways will be lots for everyone and hopefully we can all make each other happy. thanks in advance for shopping here i look forward to seeing ya all and making both our days

yesterday was the end of a very stressing time on one of the forums i belonged to(past tense as i quit there yesterday) i had issues with several people about some things which just was not needed about i finally made a decision to step away from this group, i just want any who DO read my blog to know no hard feelings with any of you is time i moved on i wish you all the best and am leaving it at that, i don't want to start anything i just wanted to tell you all i wish you the best

please read this so you might be able to understand my life


Having chronic pain means many things change, and a lot of them are invisible. Unlike having cancer or being hurt in an accident, most people do not understand even a little about chronic pain and its effects, and of those that think they know, many are actually misinformed.

In the spirit of informing those who wish to understand ...
... These are the things that I would like you to understand about me before you judge me...

Please understand that being sick doesn't mean I'm not still a human being. I have to spend most of my day in considerable pain and exhaustion, and if you visit, sometimes I probably don't seem like much fun to be with, but I'm still me-- stuck inside this body. I still worry about school, my family, my friends, and most of the time - I'd still like to hear you talk about yours, too.

Please understand the difference between "happy" and "healthy". When you've got the flu, you probably feel miserable with it, but I've been sick for years. I can't be miserable all the time. In fact, I work hard at not being miserable. So, if you're talking to me and I sound happy, it means I'm happy. That's all. It doesn't mean that I'm not in a lot of pain, or extremely tired, or that I'm getting better, or any of those things. Please don't say, "Oh, you're sounding better!" or "But you look so healthy!¨ I am merely coping. I am sounding happy and trying to look normal. If you want to comment on that, you're welcome.

Please understand that being able to stand up for ten minutes doesn't necessarily mean that I can stand up for twenty minutes, or an hour. Just because I managed to stand up for thirty minutes yesterday doesn't mean that I can do the same today. With a lot of diseases you're either paralyzed, or you can move. With this one, it gets more confusing everyday. It can be like a yo-yo. I never know from day to day, how I am going to feel when I wake up. In most cases, I never know from minute to minute. That is one of the hardest and most frustrating components of chronic pain.

Please repeat the above paragraph substituting, "sitting", "walking", "thinking", "concentrating", "being sociable" and so on ... it applies to everything. That's what chronic pain does to you.

Please understand that chronic pain is variable. It's quite possible (for many, it's common) that one day I am able to walk to the park and back, while the next day I'll have trouble getting to the next room. Please don't attack me when I'm ill by saying, "But you did it before!" or Oh, come on, I know you can do this!" If you want me to do something, then ask if I can. In a similar vein, I may need to cancel a previous commitment at the last minute. If this happens, please do not take it personally. If you are able, please try to always remember how very lucky you are--to be physically able to do all of the things that you can do.

Please understand that "getting out and doing things" does not make me feel better, and can often make me seriously worse. You don't know what I go through or how I suffer in my own private time. Telling me that I need to exercise, or do some things to get my mind off of it¨ may frustrate me to tears, and is not correct if I was capable of doing some things any or all of the time, don't you know that I would? I am working with my doctor and I am doing what I am supposed to do. Another statement that hurts is, "You just need to push yourself more, try harder..." Obviously, chronic pain can deal with the whole body, or be localized to specific areas. Sometimes participating in a single activity for a short or a long period of time can cause more damage and physical pain than you could ever imagine. Not to mention the recovery time, which can be intense. You can't always read it on my face or in my body language. Also, chronic pain may cause secondary depression (wouldn't you get depressed and down if you were hurting constantly for months or years?), but it is not created by depression.

Please understand that if I say I have to sit down/lie down/stay in bed/or take these pills now, that probably means that I do have to do it right now - it can't be put off or forgotten just because I'm somewhere, or am right in the middle of doing something. Chronic pain does not forgive, nor does it wait for anyone.

If you want to suggest a cure to me, please don't. It's not because I don't appreciate the thought, and it's not because I don't want to get well. Lord knows that isn't true. In all likelihood, if you've heard of it or tried it, so have I. In some cases, I have been made sicker, not better. This can involve side effects or allergic reactions. It also includes failure, which in and of itself can make me feel even lower. If there were something that cured, or even helped people with my form of chronic pain, then we'd know about it. There is worldwide networking (both on and off the Internet) between people with chronic pain. If something worked, we would KNOW. It's definitely not for lack of trying. If, after reading this, you still feel the need to suggest a cure, then so be it. I may take what you said and discuss it with my doctor.

If I seem touchy, it's probably because I am. It's not how I try to be. As a matter of fact, I try very hard to be normal. I hope you will try to understand. I have been, and am still, going through a lot. Chronic pain is hard for you to understand unless you have had it. It wreaks havoc on the body and the mind. It is exhausting and exasperating. Almost all the time, I know that I am doing my best to cope with this, and live my life to the best of my ability. I ask you to bear with me, and accept me as I am. I know that you cannot literally understand my situation unless you have been in my shoes, but as much as is possible, I am asking you to try to be understanding in general.

In many ways I depend on you - people who are not sick. I need you to visit me when I am too sick to go out... Sometimes I need you help me with the shopping, cooking or cleaning. I may need you to take me to the doctor, or to the store. You are my link to the normalcy of life. You can help me to keep in touch with the parts of life that I miss and fully intend to undertake again, just as soon as I am able.

I know that I have asked a lot from you, and I do thank you for listening. It really does mean a lot.


1. People with chronic pain seem unreliable (we can't count on ourselves). When feeling better we promise things (and mean it); when in serious pain, we may not even show up.

2. An action or situation may result in pain several hours later, or even the next day. Delayed pain is confusing to people who have never experienced it.

3. Pain can inhibit listening and other communication skills. It's like having someone shouting at you, or trying to talk with a fire alarm going off in the room. The effect of pain on the mind can seem like attention deficit disorder. So you may have to repeat a request, or write things down for a person with chronic pain. Don't take it personally, or think that they are stupid.

4. The senses can overload while in pain. For example, noises that wouldn't normally bother you, seem too much.

5. Patience may seem short. We can't wait in a long line; can't wait for a long drawn out conversation.

6. Don't always ask "how are you" unless you are genuinely prepared to listen it just points attention inward.

7. Pain can sometimes trigger psychological disabilities (usually very temporary). When in pain, a small task, like hanging out the laundry, can seem like a huge wall, too high to climb over. An hour later the same job may be quite OK. It is sane to be depressed occasionally when you hurt.

8. Pain can come on fairly quickly and unexpectedly. Pain sometimes abates after a short rest. Chronic pain people appear to arrive and fade unpredictably to others.

9. Knowing where a refuge is, such as a couch, a bed, or comfortable chair, is as important as knowing where a bathroom is. A visit is much more enjoyable if the chronic pain person knows there is a refuge if needed. A person with chronic pain may not want to go anywhere that has no refuge ( place to sit or lie down).

10. Small acts of kindness can seem like huge acts of mercy to a person in pain. Your offer of a pillow or a cup of tea can be a really big thing to a person who is feeling temporarily helpless in the face of encroaching pain.

11. Not all pain is easy to locate or describe. Sometimes there is a body-wide feeling of discomfort, with hard to describe pains in the entire back, or in both legs, but not in one particular spot you can point to. Our vocabulary for pain is very limited, compared to the body's ability to feel varieties of discomfort.

12. We may not have a good "reason" for the pain. Medical science is still limited in its understanding of pain. Many people have pain that is not yet classified by doctors as an officially recognized "disease". That does not reduce the pain, - it only reduces our ability to give it a label, and to have you believe us.

happy august to you all, dh and i have been working around our house here where we call house 2 so much to be done and we are getting alot done but will have lots of work to do for a lonnnnnnnnnnng time lol a few days ago here in washington state(as well as many other places im sure) had record breaking heat into the 100's the hottest it was at our other house was 110 thats right my friends 110 degrees i about died from the heat i had to have the ac on in the car and sit in the shade when we were at house one but felt bad for the kids as they needed help keeping the kittys hydrated they did not want to eat much or drink because of how hot it was but they and we (humans) need to drink more when the heat index is so high thank the good lord it has come down to a normal 80 something that i can handle thankfully here at house 2 we have ac in as dad had a heat pump put in last fall and while he did not live long enough to enjoy it we sure as heck have enjoyed it right now is a balmy 77 degrees out and are loving it outside is still close to 80 so am sitting in here online besides the mosquitoes are HUGE and vicious this year i had bites that were so big it took me a week to get rid of them

dh dd and myself went last week down to the beach at ocean shores we stayed at a nice motel which ended up costing us almost 150.00 a night so we stayed one night besides which i could not lay down in the bed anyways i didn't sleep worth a darn dd slept on the sofa and while i would have gladly done it she wanted to sleep there so while she had a awful night on the couch i had a awful night in the bed who knows maybe we should have switched hehe here are some pictures of our trip i hope you all enjoy them and am glad to see you all reading please leave a comment if you read my blog i am sorry been so long in between posts have had some puter problems and also just super busy and dh is on vacation oh joy hehe hugs and love ya all enjoy the pics now vicki
