Calma is back in hospital today to get re-hydrated. Not sure what will happen after that.
She is very weak in the legs and has trouble standing on her own.
More to come when I hear.

Got your card yesterday Sable, thank you. :D

Did you make that? That's impressive! I wish I were creative.

How is Calma doing? I've really got to check in more so I can keep up.

As soon as she is stronger, Calma will be heading back home. Seems the deydration is keeping her down.
She will try to get cards out when she gets home she said but they might be late.

Yea, made the cards. Had fun doing it but didnt have the right pens to make them look like I wanted.

Your card was beautiful, Sable - I have it standing on my bookshelf; I'm the one who couldn't get my pen to work. My little postcards look pretty simple compared to the others… :blush:

Has anybody received one of my cards yet?

*he prays, hoping that they're not lost in the mail*

So I had a really fun holiday party today with all my family and friends; crazy fun, the sort of wild, uncontrollable entertainment that you get from a really lunatic family. I got a tarot reading from one of my aunts unexpectedly, and I was informed that my house lies at a prime crossroads of Bigfoot traffic. My sister has three other Christmas parties to attend tonight! Good lord, I'm exhausted after just one!

Sorry for not getting here very often. Work has been crazy busy and this coming week even more so.

Sent off a bunch of ecards today. Hoping the email addresses are still valid. :oops:

If you would like one you can email me at miss-doona@bigpond.com

Da Wench said she will try to get on board soon. Snowed under in caramel... :shock:

Now I'll just take some of the yummy goodies and go see Mortal Engines... :D

I sent an email your way, nl - no need to rush or anything, but I wouldn't mind an e-card :)

Ooh, I hope to see Wench on here again soon! But being snowed under in caramel sounds fun.

And I can't wait to see Mortal Engines! Today I just got a surprise gift of 20 dollars, which is going towards movie tickets - I think I'll go to see it on Monday or Tuesday

Heading out to see Calma today. I'm also the ride for her babyman so he is going and maybe one of her boys if not both.
Hoping she will get home soon but it looks like she will be in rehab again or at hospital for strengthening PT.

Don't have any parties (Calma's is the only one I usually go to) but my apartment complex is having a holiday bingo on the 21st.

The other day I was surprised by hearing fire engines sounding their horn in my complex. Well it keeps up and I go out the door to see what is up.
Well what to my wondering eyes should appear but Santa's fire engines holiday lights to see and sirens to hear.
Got to hug Santa and got a candy cane and my picture taken with him.
Waiting to see my pic when they post them on fb. The search and rescue volanteers are going all over our town.

Got an answer to my email from Iris today. She says she's fine, it's just work pressures and problems with her computer monitor have been keeping her off TORC lately.

But she got my Christmas card (glad someone did) and she said she'd get her's out as soon as she can.

Sable---that's pretty cool that they would do something like that. Nice that you got to join in.

To echo Tooks: Calma----GET WELL!! WE MISS YOU!!

Oh thank the Gods! I was beginning to worry they had all gotten lost!

I have read all the books in the series, and I just saw the movie today: I loved it! The ending could have been a little different (closer to the book), and I would have liked that, but other than that I thought it was a really good, solid movie, the acting was good, and the whole world is beautiful onscreen.

And I just got my card from Ladykat! Thank you so much!

The damage from the tornado is awful, but thank the Makert no serious injuries or deaths.

I'm getting a bit stronger.
Did I remember to thank Wenchie for the carmels?
I hope so

Later

Yea...tornadoes are scary, even if they don't get very near. :Q

Those caramels should help fix you up, Calma. :D
Keep getting stronger!

Yes, Tookish is right: keep getting stronger, Calma!

But first, come right over here and give me a hug - I've missed you! Oh, it's so good to see you back! :D Eat lots of caramel!

And good lord, tornadoes??? Stay safe! I've never really been in a real tornado; there was one time a long time ago, when a tornado was in the next town over, that my sister insisted we all flee into the basement with all of our cats in crates, plus our dog. We stayed there for, like, an hour - until finally one of us got the notice that the tornado had moved on. But the only real natural disaster that I've experienced was that earthquake a few years back, and it really just rattled the walls a little.

High winds here today. It's scary seeing the really tall fir trees practically doing toe touches.
Had a couple hits on power and cable but as of now nothing permanent.
*crosses fingers that the wind passes...*giggle*...with little or no damage.

Yes, tornadoes are scary. I was in the middle of an EF5 tornado which went through Topeka, KS on June 8, 1966. The room I was in was the only one left standing when it was over.
