    Default I am still here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My loves!!!!!! I have missed you very much! Everything here is going ok. I have been working soooooooo much and find it hard to make time to even think. Working so much has resulted in me catching the flu. It wasn't the swine flu but the good ole flu that I even got a flu shot for! I was in the hospital last week with it and today is the first day that I have been feeling better. The only issue I have now is that my lungs are full of liquid at this point and the coughing feels like I have glass particles in my lungs......yuck!!!!!!! Hopefully it will pass soon and we just have to keep an I eye out for pneumonia at this point. Other than that, health hasn't been to bad

    I took a job at Michael's craft store in their framing department. It is fun but doesn't pay very well and there are no benefits. It seems like I work everyday and may get a day off every other week. It is just exhausting and makes shot night and recovering from shot night that much harder. But, I am the only one in the house with a job so I have to push through at this point. Tim has been interviewing and is on an interview right now. I cross my fingers everyday that he will not only find a job but also that he finds something he truly enjoys. I know time will tell and patience is what we have to hang on to right now. Our home is set to be auctioned of at the beginning of November but we may have postponed it until the first of the year, we are just waiting to hear.

    Tim and I are doing fine. We are nervous with the house and job situation but we are just trying to hang on to each other through all of this. I know one day we will look back and smile at our struggles and that is what I keep reminding us. Until then, we will just get through everyday with a smile and the hope that tomorrow will be filled with possibilities
    As I grow to understand life less and less,
    I learn to love it more and more.

    Sorry about your job situation and your home being auctioned off. Try to hang in there the best you can. I had a home auctioned off many years ago and I understand somewhat what you are going through.

    I was about to send out a search party Danica! I had a friend that worked at a Michaels way out on West Bell Rd. She liked it pretty well. What else are you up to these days?

    Danica!!!
    It's so good to see you here again! We've missed you. I'm sorry to hear that you've been sick. I know that it must be really hard to work the day after your shot.
    Hang in there. I hope that Tim gets that great job that you're dreaming of.

    oh, danica, so glad to hear from you. I have missed you so much. Glad you are working, glad you love it, but sorry your pay isn't better and that you have to work so much. I will keep my fingers crossed that they pospone the forclosure, and that Tim finds his dream job. It is these times that can seal the bond between two people, you and Tim are special people and i am so glad that you found and have each other. Pop back in and share your wonderful words with the new members......and us oldies.

    Hello there love! I have been worrying about not seeing you here or on FB. I am sorry to hear about the hospital. Please be careful with those lungs of yours. Pneumonia doesn't sound like my idea of a god time. I am glad to hear that you are liking Michaels, but what happened with that other job? Are you working 2 jobs now? I know things are hard with the job situation, and I hope it gets better for you and Tim real soon.

    Have I told you that I love you all today??????? Well, I do! Something has been missing in my life over the last few months and I realized it is all of you. There has been an empty ache and a lack of support from those who know first hand how hard our disease can be. I think of all of you everyday and wonder how you are feeling and just what you are doing. There isn't a moment that I do not carry all of you in my heart and through my day. I love you all and am so happy to be making time for me and the ones I love
