I am not sure

I can't do much more than wilt away on this one.
God gained 2 angels today. One was waiting joyously to meet her Saviour, the other was taken away in an instant by a driver who was not paying attention.
When I can think I will write more.

The store was busy

There's a 13 pound tom turkey languishing in my fridge. Had to rearrange some things but it's there. The giblets and gizzards have just come to a boil and they will cook until they are done. Then I will fry the livers with some onion and put them all in a bag to cool. Wednesday night I will put them in the food processor and chop them up.Thursday morning I will mix them with the cooked celery and onion and add them to the stuffing with my organic chicken broth and make the stuffing. There's never enough stuffing and I like it the next day with turkey gravy.

I am home today because my 19 year old daughter lost a friend. He left a 4 page note and he shot himself away from home. He was only 19. Another friend who was on a police ride along happened to be with the officers when they went to the kids house to take a missing persons report, while they were there the coroners office called and asked them if they had a son, and then asked them to come down and ID the body. How awful. Now these kids who knew him are walking around like zombies wondering how and why didn't he ask for help. It's the most selfish thing a person can do.

Have most of the shopping done for Thanksgiving and on Wednesday will have kid#1 take me out so I can finish. I need some Chambord liqueur to use with my trifle. I am making a cranberry trifle and I will pour the chambord over the pound cake, then the cranberries, then the whipped cream and then repeat till the bowl is full. Put it in the fridge and keep it cool. It will be yummy, I will cook my cranberries with a bit of pie spice that always adds to it.

I am getting a little tired now, just took my pills, I can function at a certain level. My mom says I was mumbling this morning. Most likely. After I take the Klonopin I feel okay but a little spacey. If I take the Norco on an empty stomach you might as well get the rubber room ready. But it helps the arm and that is good. When I was at the store and passed the display where they have the cooked chickens and ribs ready to go, I said I could just stand under this light forever it felt so good and warm.

On the medical side:
1. I have to send a form to the Federal Security Director of the TSA at LAX for permission to wear my jacket at the exit. ( what pfiffle is this?)
2. I have called my claims examiner two times in the last 5 days asking about the approval for the new doctor. What have I got? No calls no letter.
3. So my shoulder is miserable, my back is crunching as we speak and life goes on.
At least God loves me and I cling to that knowledge, that no matter what happens in life, he is there for me, holding me, supporting me, and loving me.

so that's it for now. more after the feast. guess i'd better get some pumpkin pies.

Fires Fires Fires

It's hard to explain what it's like to see the fires all around in the hills and sit down here in the flats and pray for your friends and coworkers who may have lost their homes. There is a fire close to here, 15 miles away. I called a friend but he hasn't called back.

Have another 3 days off thanks to the back going bad, yesterday I had a Toradol shot and a flu shot. I am going to get the ice pack out and use it. Thank God I can use the FMLA and not get dinged for the absence. Of course this is the same agency that denied my doctor's request to wear a jacket at the exit. Gotta wonder don't you?

Now they are asking reporters to leave a mobile home park that reporters have used as a staging area in Sylmar. It's a crime scene. If someone set this fire I have no sympathy for them. Let them suffer.

Husband has gone to the other side of the mts to go gold prospecting. The active fire is about 45 miles from where he is. I can't get ahold of him and he didn't take his phone charger with him. Going to be anxiety for a while.

Monday I get to bid for a new shift. We shall see. All I can do is sit at an exit so what difference is it? People who work shifts are pissy that light duty can bid. They've taken everything else away from us, so this is one way to keep our dignity. Because there is none left. This is one thing that a great many people don't care about===

I'll keep posting on the new medical degree of the primary terminal manager who has denied my doctor's request for me to wear a jacket at night. If it causes back spasms and makes my shoulder spasm too we'll start talking greivance.

Bye from the bunny.........
