    Good morning All. Thansk for the words.

    Yea the rep is back!!

    I passed out as much as I could, I still have to spread it around before I can give to some people, even after spreading all that I have this morning.

    So now all I have to do is find out what everything means again. I do miss having the big number for rep but I live the new stars and heart though I would have liked the rubies and diamonds better. Guess that's a woman for you, never satisfied. LOL

    So I had a quite weekend and I didn't do much. Just a bit of cleaning and a watching TV and playing on Pogo.

    The kids start taking the bus home tonight. That means I save $60 a wek on the sitter and I get a free hour at home to get supper ready while they are on the bus. No more walking in the door and hearing "I;m hungry when will dinner be ready?". It will be ready as soon as they get it.

    C.P. is still on strike and if we don't get in before 8am it take over an hour to get thruogh the line. Right now those that work in the building that are not CP empolyees can use the one enterance and they let us though but at 8am the CP empolyees can start using it so they only let one car every 5 mins through. Same thing for at night, only one car every 5 mins is allowed to leave. I am glad I leave early, so it doesn't take me too long to get out.

    Still no snow here, but they are calling for 5-10 cm tonight. Sorry to hear so many SC'ers have had more. I called my folks and laught at them, mom said they had about 4 inches in Cambridge and they are lucky now if they get that for the whole winter. I just hope we don't get as much as last year.

    I still have to cover the windows with the winter film stuff to block the drafts and this year I want to put plastic up over the kitchen door that I don't use.

    You can tell that it is getting colder, I can't get the cats to go outside. Grrrrrr, means I have to buy more kitty litter. I don't even go though a bag in the summer, but when winter hits I go though a ton.

    Anyway I must get to work if I want to leave a little early. Have great days everyone.

    OK I've pretended to be busy enough for now at work - now I think I will get into my sweats and head over to the gym for 1/2 an hour and get my hinny on the eliptical and try to kill myself - this quitting smoking and gaining weight is for the birds. Loving food too much now and gained 20 lbs and still want to eat all the time so the gym isn't make me lose weight but probably helping me from gaining anymore.

    NS forget the fort. Make snowballs and throw them at anyone who walks past ya. Just not elderly people or small children. This doesnt include family members. This will make ya feel better, and they may look you in a nice little room for a paid vacation for a bit.

    Cant see the downside of it lmao. You get 3 meals a day prepared by someone else. Noone can bother you if they dont work there.

    ok, I know I said I wouldn't write about this but there's more to the DH suicide saga. Because of his actions last week, one of the parents of the kids that I babysit has decided to pull her child and put him in a daycare rather than home care. I don't blame her, I'd do the same thing. DH's response... 'and that's MY fault?? If you hadn't told her about it, she never wouldn't have known.' huh?? As a parent she had every right to know that he was threatening to kill himself. I'd be livid if I was in her situation and no one told me.
    Then the daycare agency comes by on Friday to see if the rest of the kids should be pulled from my house because of safety issues. They decided against it but regardless, with the toddler gone I can't make ends meet so right before Christmas I'm thinking that I'll have to go out and look for a full time job. I can't rely on being able to use the van because WSIB is supposed to send him back to school and he'll need to use it to get to London each day. Who knows when that'll happen - could be next week, could be next year. I live in a smaller town with crappy bus service and since over 1000 people have been laid off their factory jobs in the last 4 months, jobs are far and few between here.
    The good news..... the daycare agency has offered to provide me with a temporary job that will tide me over until Jim can get therapy and get his act together. Basically I'd be a fill-in driving between 3 different daycare's helping out where needed. They would pay me what I am making right now so I don't have to worry about a job which I know I wouldn't be able to find right now.
    And Jim still thinks that none of this is his fault and that I made a big deal over nothing. If I hadn't opened my mouth to everyone, no one would have known the difference. It's THAT attitude that scares me the most - he doesn't take any of it as a serious issue. I can handle a lot and I'm not nearly close to my breaking point but his attitude just floors me. Stupid people p**s me off!!
    ok, that's it for today.

    want some good news? if your working out regularly that 20lbs you gained? some of it is muscle! (muscle weighs more than fat, best way to tell if your losing or gaining is to measure yourself all around, waist, arms, legs chest, everywhere and keep track) just keep eating healthy. i'm trying to do some taebo here, but i keep fooking myself up

    JODE. you know what he's doing right? your smart chickey. he says he's going to do this terrible thing, hoping you get wound up, then he acts all calm and everything and here you are practically going nuts over it with worry on how your going to manage etc. so now all the attention is taken away from your DH (dumbass in this case), and the focus put on you. he's trying to make it seem like your fault.

    basically, chickey that's emotional abuse when they do that. I'm glad you are so strong willed and can work, otherwise i'd be worried about you.

    but now that you know what his game is. what's your next move?

    i know wot mine would be. and it has worked for me with my DH (damn/dumbass in my case). I'd call him on it. I would tell him exactly what he is doing and why. when my dh (damn) pulled that syat on me, and i mulled it over and figured out what he was doing, HE STOPPED. i was lucky tho. some women go thru years of abuse.

    oh haun..that's horrible!

    my friend's daughter broke her collarbone, but they didn't know til that night when she tried to get up off the couch.

    but i know what you mean about hosp. mom broke 2 bones in her arm falling over ryan chasing the dog when he was 1 or 2. i fugget. anyway, took her to emerg here in sackville, well they didn't know wot the fook they were doing. they did not set her arm properly, and she had to go to physio since, lost alot of use in the hand on that side. but if we had of taken her to the main hosp 20 mins away, she might have gotten better treatment.

    but then you don't want someone in their 70's who was white as a sheet at the time, to have to travel extra time..so i understand your dh going off. i would too.

    possible they didn't have the facilities or expertise to do the surgury?

    Is it true that SCOP doesn't cover produce?
    No Frills just reimbursed me the difference when I bought a honeydew and the scanned price was higher than the tag price.
    There was another time I bought a tray of pastries and the scanned price was higher than the sticker price on the product. I pointed it out. The cashier just adjusted the price and when I mentioned SCOP, she verified with another cashier and then told me it's not part of SCOP because it was not their pricing error and that the sticker wasn't theirs but the manufacturer's.

    Jode sounds like you made the right decision to get a temporary job, at least you can be assured of having some money coming in & will also give you a place to go to get out of the house for your sanity. Hang in there & stay strong.

    Thanks so much for all the rep, strange tho, rep power is not going up???

    I have a funny broken arm story (funny if you have a weird sense of humour, which I do).

    In 1998, I was out of work & looking for a job. Got a gig with a temp agency doing desktop publishing. The first day I was there (Wed), I spent 8 hours entering data (can you say boring?). They liked me, were impressed I didn`t complain, & set up a meeting for me for Fri with HR to give me a 6 month contract.

    The next day, I decided to take a break at lunch & go down below (if you don`t know Toronto, the tall buildings downtown are connected underground to an underground `city` with stores, restaurants, food courts, etc.).

    I was getting hungry & a bit lightheaded, missed my step, & did a nose dive down a flight of concrete steps. I was out for maybe 10 seconds. I woke up to see a circle of older men in business suits in a ring around me. One of the men was emptying sugar packets at my mouth (I was diabetic at the time & they thought my sugar levels had sunk). I couldn`t figure out if I`d gone to heaven or the other place.

    A security guard got there to tell me the ambulance was on its way. I gave him my boss` number & my parents` number to call as the paramedics arrived.

    At the hospital, they took x-rays, but couldn`t find anything wrong (pain in shoulder & swollen face). At this point, my parents show up. My mother is beside herself, so to break the tension, my father starts calling me Potato Nose (well, once I saw myself in the mirror, it was sort of shaped like a potato).

    The doctors are getting ready to send me home, since there`s nothing wrong they can see, until one of the interns takes a look at my x-ray & asks what that line is. I had a hairline fracture at the very tip where 2 bones meet. Nothing can be done but to put arm in sling.

    Meanwhile, the security guard had called my parents, but forgot to tell my boss. I had a nasty message from the temp agency on my phone when I finally got home at 7pm, wondering why I had walked out so unprofessionally.

    So, the next day, tired from not sleeping all night (I kept rolling over & hitting my shoulder) & in pain, my father drove me in to work (this was winter & I had left my coat at work). I walk into the room & everyone stops dead & stares at me. I explained what had happened & my boss wanted to know why I would be stupid enough to come in. I reminded her of my appt with the HR lady. That had to be the best interview I ever had. The whole interview consisted of her asking me, Are you ok? Can I get you anything? Are you OK? Needless to say, I got the job.

    Oh, 1 other thing to show just how crazy I am. I had concert tix for that night which I wasn`t about to waste. I had told my friends about the accident, but not how bad I looked. My father drove me to the restaurant where we were meeting (my friend was going to drive me home). I got there first, got a table & some weird looks from the waitstaff. When my friends walked in, they just about fainted. Then screamed at me for not staying home in bed! Needless to say I had a great time at the concert.
