Good morning everyone,
 
I think this must be Belle's first real snow.  She is having so much fun in the snow.  Prancing around like it's a new playground and she is the queen.  One of my resolutions for the year is to get a camera and learn how to upload photos.  Trust me, that's a lot as I still have my old flip phone.
Connie is now in a nursing home.  Will not go into all the lies, etc her case manager told while at the hospital.  We are going to try everything we can to make her independent again.  That is the goal.  Hope to strengthen her and then get her moved to a  rehab facility.  She deserves the chance.  She wanted to be put to sleep permanently on Wednesday and I told her to get her a$$ out of bed.  She actually stood for the physical therapist.  Part of the problem is her inability to communicate on how she has managed, some of which looks pretty unconventional.  But it worked for her and so I have to be her mouth piece to let people know let her do it her way.  Maybe the nursing home is a blessing in disguise.  She will quickly learn that is not where she wants to spend the rest of her life.
While I am unloading, I told Dennis last week it was time for us to just be friends.  He is a good person, but I cannot give into the relationship right now.  I just can't conjure up the energy to fix or try to get us to fix what is wrong.  Sometimes it is just better to let things die a natural death.  Relationships require a lots of work, which is good . . . right now I don't have that kind of energy.
George enjoyed his stay over Christmas and Belle was so glad to see him.  I was too.  He is slowly going down hill, but by and large he is happy and thank God he is not in pain.
I know it wasn't one of the voting choices, but my vote is to leave the name of the thread the same.  Just because JSM hasn't been able to come in here didn't really change anything, except we missed her dearly.  I say give it a little more time.  Brandi's names were good but I like it the way it is.
Thank you everyone for your prayers.
Blessings.
 

Sister You are all in my Prayers. I hear you about learning new things with cameras and all. I still have a flip phone and will keep it as long as I can. I know my kids keep telling me I need a smart phone. I keep telling them for what. I have my computer. I use my phone to talk but did have to add texting as they are text everything rather than call.

Sorry to hear about Connie. Prayers she makes the choice to get back on her feet again. Glad to hear George still has no pain. I am sure Bella loved the snow. 

Prayers for you all. May God give you the strength to see all these things thru.  an angelic monkey

LALALA  Hi CC, LALALA  Thanks for the update. LOL I don't follow sports so all that was greek to me. But Miles Davis was a Jazz musician band leader and Carlos Santana is a Lantino pop. rock kinds of Jazz 
singer, band leader. I like some of Santanas music but liked Miles Davis better. Ya I know I am old.

Happy New Years Monkeys.... I understand the name change. I haven't been myself lately. Kind of a bit of depression I guess. I pray that you all have a wonderful New Year in 2014. Really stressed out about my job with this Obamacare coming and we are losing business.

My new year resolution is to log into monkeys every day, try not to be depressed, and take every day as it comes instead on dwelling on what may happen in the future.

God bless you all and if you don't mind, pray for my friend. She was in a wreck in early November, she lost her leg, her spleen and liver were basically exploded. She is still in hospital due to infection in her abdomen. Plus she doesn't have insurance, the hospital has given her a years worth of coverage because she is basically indigent now.

I miss and love you all.  an angelic monkey 

JSM - It's so good to see you!
I have missed the special warmth and love you brought to this place.  Also your wonderful sense of humor.

I'm so sorry you have been going through a rough patch for a number of months and I think it is in part due to the deep caring you feel for others.  Perhaps you've become overwhelmed, and maybe you need to reserve some of that caring for your self.  Will you try?

I like your New Years resolutions!

Prayers for your friend.  As a Canadian, and a conservative at that, I find it incomprehensible
how a persons health care requirements can leave them indigent.  I admit I fail to understand your health care system and the complexities of it. 

 
CAN... I have missed you and all the monkeys.

I have just had a bad patch that I can't explain. It has to do with CC and marrying in the church. I am such a negative nelly and inpatient. It has just gotten me down.

Thanks about my New Years Resolutions....

As for my friend, the hospital HAS to give her treatment, it is the rehab they wouldn't give her. She has at least a year of rehab and hopefully more. I have been helping her family get the help she needs so that is another little patch in the road.

I am happy with CC, the dogs and etc... just need prayers for me.

 an angelic monkey Love you and all!!!!

PS Kiss that picture of Stephen Harper for me.   

Many prayers for you JSM. 
So sorry you have been struggling for so long.   

You mention Stephen.  My Mom received a calendar from him.  I have not!  Could it be that I forgot to send in a donation this year?

Monday is supposed to be a HIGH of -15 degrees! It is so cold out right now, can't imagine what -15 will feel like. Therefore, I plan to stay in my house all day!
Stay safe and warm Monkey Butts!

I know ours is supposed to be 0 on Monday - with wind and a foot of new snow - kids are supposed to go back to school that day but I am thinking not. I told them I was dropping them off anyway. Take gloves. They did not find it funny!   Monkey Devil!

I think in some ways, keeping the name the same puts a burden on JSM.  She probably deep down feels guilty she's not stopping by "her" thread.  Changing the name will ease that guilt as the thread will no longer "appear" to be all about/for her (even though I know it was everyone's thread). The people will remain the same.  JSM and CC brought everyone together in this thread and that won't change.  Only the name will change to reflect what the thread really is since JSM was never in jeopardy of being banned (can't say the same for CC, lol)

I think it's time for a name change.


Klaas, I hope it's o.k. to post my opinion, though it may differ from yours.
 
Since JSM has been undergoing some depression and discussion about a name change has likely brought that out and because JSM has said she intends to post regularly now I would appreciate it if you and others here would consider giving JSM a second chance, as it were.

There has been some discussion about this thread and musings not being welcoming..

I noticed when I became familiar with JSM'S thread, that she responded to each and every post.  I know that is not a requirement and we can post or not, respond or not, as we choose.
I think it can be said that most of us, myself included, do not.  I think that is the uniqueness of JSM.  She welcomed everyone, embraced everyone and set a wonderful example.  Friendships developed.  She was the heart of it.

I believe in remembering and appreciating past acts of kindness.  I believe in second chances. 

With respect, would you please consider reinstating JSM'S thread?  Thank you.

  an angelic monkey Oh Can that is so sweet, I love you all. Maybe you can vote for CC's posts name.

Just crazy cold.

   

Hope everyone is managing to keep warm!

Stay warm Brandi. From the sounds of this weather system it's going to be brutal all over for a few days.

Good morning Monkeys!

A visit to a warm climate would be most welcome.  We experienced a five day power failure from a huge ice storm Christmas week and this morning temp. is -21 c.  Had enough of winter already.  Blech!

Keep warm friends.
      Holy Crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would freeze Hope you have a fireplace.   

No Fireplace.  Friends that had them faired much better.  A lovely neighbor of ours got a generator in the last two days and shared it with us.  Saved our bacon as households went down by the fifth day to -1 to -4 c.

Hubs is researching generators and we will be prepared if it ever happens again.

Glad to see JSM here. Miss her & CC

Yikes the weather is just crazy. Hope everyone is staying warm. Yikes I heard from our Northern and it's like -40 where she is in Canada. My toes are frozen and it's 30 here. I am such a wuss when it comes to cold weather.

Good to see you JSM. I know we chat elsewhere but it is still good to see you here.
Did not realize you were not feeling like yourself. Hang in there friend.

Reading through the thread, just want all of u to know that I am hoping for the best for all of you in whatever you are going through. Hoping 2014 is a fab year for everyone!


Cookie!

Good to see you.

Wishing you and all the monkeys a wonderful 2014!
  an angelic monkey Same to you Brandi as well.

Good to see you, JSM.

Sorry to hear about your downer moods.

I find it helps me to concentrate on the good things I have going on in my life.

You seem to have lots of those to focus on.

Hope you get to feeling better soon.
  an angelic monkey Hi Brandi, it has been quite a bit of a struggle. I don't know what is going to happen with my job, I have been pouting about the annulment and not giving it up to God. I thankfully have CC, Patton and Ruby to give me love and hope. CC mostly, he keeps giving me the strength go keep going. 

JSM  You have a wonderful support group all around you. CC being at the top of the list. Stop worrying. What is going to happen is going to happen and all your worrying about it isn't going to change the out come one way the other.  All is doing is making you feel awful.  Your job is going to be fine and your annulment will go thru. On their time line not yours. Life is short and we aren't guaranteed tomorrow so enjoy each day and let the rest take care of it's self

Must be amusing to watch Belle in the snow. 
Nice that Belle was glad to see George.  It must please George.  Glad he is not in pain.

Connie is being cared for in a nursing home. Fantastic that you and the family have a goal for Connie.  It gives her hope.

Prayers as always Sister.  an angelic monkey

Thanks GE.  We have talked about it as well.  Three weeks before the ice storm in fact.  Hubs could kick himself.  He's looking at Honda brand.

How on earth do you keep your pipes from freezing with no heat source?

How nice you got use of a generator in the last two days!

If you all lose power very often, a generator is a good investment.

TBM the picture is impressive. Luckily only getting a couple of inches of snow forecast with temps not getting above freezing for a couple of days. I'm under a maintenance contract with the generator and it was just checked out no problems. I'm suppose to be scoped on Tuesday early AM but think I'll cancel because I have to go over several overpasses and a bridge and they're warning about black ice. Schools in the local area are all starting 2-3 hours late Mon through Wed due to the ice. We are such wusses here in the south.
Everyone keep warm and safe.

I am sure having that whole-house generator is comforting to you. That's great you have one.

Sounds like good planning concerning your Tuesday appointment.

You keep warm and safe too!

Hopefully all we have to worry about is keeping warm, just frigid temps forecast here for a couple of days, with no precipitation.
