… of *cough, cough, phlegm* and SAD

N and I have been sick with a really bad cold. This has made it difficult to do pretty much anything. On top of being sick, it has been really frigid, rainy, snowy, and gloomy out. The combination of all that has made my depression worse. Sunlight is a much needed friend. We’re so close to digging up money to buy a few full-spectrum daylight bulbs to trick my seasonal affective disorder into being nice to me.  I can’t wait to get better so I can clean and get things done.


…of not knowing what to do and the inability to help…

A good friend of mine was arrested last night. I didn’t find out until this evening, after she was already out. Her sister, knowing that I was the only other person who knew the whole story, emailed me. She’s worried about her sister, who I love dearly. I know a lot about my friend’s issues, but her sister let me in on more. Stuff that has devastated me to find out. Now, I worry about this amazing woman even more than I did before. I don’t know what to do.


…of going to Hell, GCOM, chest colds and potty training…

So, On the 20th, Jen, Steve and I went to Hell.

Aimée, Steve and Jenny in Hell!

That’s right friends, we went to Hell. (Check out the rest of the pictures on my Myspace.)The original intentions for the trip were to go to the Carnegie Library in Howell to do some research on a haunted property that GCOM is investigating. The archives of the library were amazing. Overwhelming at first, but I got help from this man, Milton Charbanaugh who is 90+ years old and the official Livingston county historian. He made things so much easier to understand. I got so much information. I think I may have been spoiled on this first investigation, because no other place I have been to has that much by way of files and history of the area. Unfortunately, that investigation didn’t happen as the occupants just couldn’t stand being there any longer and they moved. Speaking of GCOM, I am now an official member of the Ghost Chasers of Michigan as their researcher. I am soooo Excited! (See me here. I’m at the bottom. I look awful, but I don’t care. I am in GCOM!) I feel so welcomed into the group and everyone is so nice. I can’t wait to get together with them again. We have monthly meetings and they gather at a bar a few times a month, but with Ted being laid off… still… I just can’t afford to go to the bar. I can barely afford to keep the internet and let me tell you, the internet IS a neccesity to me.

I have Ted’s horrid chest cold. I am SO sick right now. I thought I would be getting better, but nooo… I woke up this morning because my lip had split in the middle of the night and I couldn’t go back to sleep. I am up before the puppy even. Ohhh, the puppy. I love Max. He is the sweetest little thing ever. He loves to cuddle and play. He and Moe seem to be the best of friends,


however he WILL NOT go potty in the litter box. He is too small to go potty outside, so we to have him litter train. It’s not working. I have no ideas left. We have tried so many things. But he is only 10 and a half weeks old. Moe potty trained so easily. Why is it so much harder with Max? Ugh!

I just finished reading “Twilight” by Stephanie Meyer. I didn’t think I would like it, but I was suprised. VERY, VERY surprised. I loved it and I can’t wait to read the next book. I love my YA books, but they never seem to grab me like this one did. I suggest you read them.

Well, I guess this is it for now. Take care!




I was really on a roll, man! I had gone 53 day IN A ROW of posting in this blog. Mostly, it was meme’s but I was posting none the less. I got SOOOO sick on Friday night. I was vomiting all Friday night and most of Saturday. I was in pain. All of my joints hurt and I kept getting really  hot then really cold and I was running a fever. I just felt horrible. My beautiful husband waited on me hand and foot and I just wanted to do nothing but sleep. Sunday, I could eat and drink, but I was still so sore. My ribs and stomache muscles felt like I had been beated with a tire iron and it pretty much killed me to cough or breathe. On top of that, my CPAP machine that I use for my sleep apnea is on the fritz and I couldn’t use it. Ugh! I am feeling a whole lot better now. Kate called me three times yesterday to make sure I was okay. I love that girl. She just had the exact same thing earlier in the week and she’s pregnant and can’t take anything for when she’s sick. She’s suck a sweetie. I will be doing a photoshoot with her for her belly pictures later this week. I just want to make sure that I am not sick any longer so I don’t get her sick again. So, cute belly pics to come soon.


Au Revoir
