Hi Ella – How have you been??

Deanie – Don’t leave us!!!! Come back!!

Lemon – {{{Hugs}}} and healing spells for your back. I know exactly how that feels after my bout with back problems two years ago. (Has it really been that long??) I had to have morphine in the hospital and I was taking “oxycottin” at home. It was that bad!! Physical Therapy and a change in my mattress helped me A LOT!! Knock on wood, I have not had a problem since. I don’t bend down now without being super concious of my back. I always think about how to bend so as to protect my back.

LadyHawkeWon and Sally are very nice… aren’t they? :) :)

I am watching the weather channel and it seems ATLANTA is getting bad storms. Is that correct Deanie?

Graymayne – I can’t think of people not having multiple backgrounds. I guess after our country’s melting pot with all different nationalties living here it just seems so normal to have different ancestors in your blood line. :)

I am about to bore you with my son’s first week in the Police Force….(skip this post if you don’t want to read about it…I don’t mind.) LOLOL!!!

My son has gotten a very “active” first week. During his first week he has seen a dead body, a pit bull bite, a chase after teenagers graffiting , a DUI, multiple and multiple of traffic stops. ….

His DEAD BODY – They reiceved a call stating that there was a report of a man missing for several days and that they were going to need to do a house check. They knocked and no one answered but a foul smell was coming from the home. They finally got an apartment manager to open the door and there was an elderly man dead on the floor. He got a heart attack and since he live alone…no one missed him for more than 5 days. My son said the smell was awful. :(

PIT BULL ATTACK – They responded to a call about a pit bull biting a 3 year old little girl. This family had a pit bull as a pet…the pit bill bit the poor toddler and tore of a chunk of her arm. My son felt so horrible for the family…they were frantic. They also did not speak English, so my son went with them in the ambulance to help translate for the family as they rode with their little girl.

TEENAGE HOODLUMS – They responded to a call to vanalism and graffiti. These teenage boys were destroying personal property and tagging a few garages and homes. My son and his partner caught them in the act….the teenagers started runnning and jumping fences to get away from them. My son being a former soccer player and just as young. Jumped fences running after the young hoodlums. He caught them too. He was proud of that. LOLOL!!! His partner who was much older jumped fences with him. My son was laughing because his partner kept telling him…“You didn’t think I could get my butt over those fences…did you??”

This all happened in his FIRST WEEK!!! If you thought I was not sleeping before…Imagine me after he told me these stories. :(

Sirius :D I like that you like my choices in music hahah! Btw, I ended up getting 4 tickets to the concert… a bit selfish of myself because I wanted to go see the show too, but also because I’m sure my mom will be much happier without having to decide who to take if she only gets 2 tickets. Knowing my mom, she will be much happier this way ;)

Minerva! glad to see you! That was quite a week for your son! Good for him and all his hard work! It’s not very nice about dealing with dead bodies, injuries and hoodlums, but he must be proud of himself :) I’m sure you’re proud :D

Hello all! Took a nap while babysitting, and just got home a little while ago. Now I’ve got a half hour to go until the club closes. I did notice that there’s a cop car sitting in the gas station across the street, so I guess they’re keeping an eye on things this week.

Ella, if you ever do go to Foxwoods and want to meet up, let me know – it’s only an hour south of me. :)

Wow, MM, busy first week for you son. I guess it’s a good way for him to make sure this is what he really wants to do. Continued Protego spells heading his way!

I’m home. Tonight’s show was better than last night’s show. Maybe it was the Friday Night Adrenalin Rush. For some reason theatre seems more special on a weekend night.

Yes, MM, Won and Sally are unbelievably lovely. You are a smart woman. When I started having the shakes I seemed to have scared Won off.

MM, I wish your son had not shared the DEAD BODY thing with you. In the back of my mind I suppose I knew he would ultimately be involved in that sort of thing but I would just as soon he had not confirmed it. I like the idea of him being a police officer through nice rosey glasses, him passing out lollipops to children and getting comps at the doughnut shop. The grisly reality it just a little to grisly. I’m not too sure about actual running and chasing contact with bad guys either. Can’t they hire someone to do that?

Evening, everyone, hope you all had a good day. I’m not really lucid (no comments from the peanut gallery on my mental capacity on a normal day, thank you very much! LOL) so I am just popping in quickly to say hi and thanks for the healing spells. Things are not improving as quickly as I was hoping and the meds are making me extremely tired and lightheaded, so I am going back to bed soon. I have not gotten any writing done in several days, which is very bad, i am WAY behind on my word counts. sigh I did make a little progress on other things, though, so that’s good. There’s a lot of stuff that really needs to be wrapped up before I leave for Boston.

LH I’m so glad that Czarina was really surprised to see Fiddler and that she enjoyed it, I thought that was such a great thing to take her to see.

MM your son sure had an action packed week! I suppose it’s good in one way to sort of get “broken in” quickly and know the sorts of things he’ll be dealing with on a regular basis, but I’m sure that doesn’t make it any easier for you. Try to stay strong and know we’re all sending Protegos his way all day, everyday.

Happy Birthday, Laura, I hope you had a great time celebrating.

Have to go crash, I will see you all tomorrow!

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

Morning all! Uncertain weather again. I am lacking motivation. I’ve just ordered three books to do with pre-history Britain and what DNA reveals about one’s ancestry, all science-based books designed for the general reader.

MM My DS can relate to the finding of dead bodies inside houses and the attendant aroma, he used to work for the local housing department.

I must do something about lunch.

Good morning Leaky friends. It is a beautiful sunny morning. I have been trying to pack for LeakyCon this morning. I know it is still 10 days before we leave, but I don’t want to forget anything. I have had my coffee and intend on writing today ‘cause tomorrow is filled with Mother’s Day things. I will be lurking.

I was just about to post that it’s so quiet here, but I refreshed first and see people are popping in. Hi!

Anyway, I am heading home from work and think I’m going to take a nap…this rainy weather, coupled with going to bed late and waking up early, is making it difficult to keep my eyes open. I will be back later, hopefully refreshed an full of energy! :)

We’re doing Mother’s Day here today. My DS has to go to work for a bit tomorrow.

We’ll be playing games and eating. My mother produced the main course, a pot roast with veggies and an eggplant casserole and I am making Mexican Cornbread and some fresh green beans. My mother even made a sort of old fashioned chocolate pudding which is sort of a mixture between chocolate cake and syrup.

gotta do a mini rant here, please ignore :
I got a request to add a friend, from a Fleur-de-Lily’ So I type in the full name in the “find a friend” swearch thingie to see the profile. The search brings up Fleur-de-Lily and about 600 other members. First rant – why did it bring up more than just the one I was searching for? Shouldn’t it have stopped just with the one?

Second part of the rant – it brought up a ton of members with Lily in the name and a bunch of Fleurs; this I can understand if the search is just a general search for any word in the name searched for, but it also brings up members such as : Sirius’s Girl (didn’t know I had one!), cloudpic, SnapeSnapeSnape, mlwl, gigglinggrindylow, ariana_dumbledore, wildhorses- patronus, pax, easeup, ginger etc, etc, etc. What the hay do they have in common with the name searched for? Shouldn’t this website have the proper technology to be able to do a proper search????????

Good Morning Leaky

I fell asleep with the laptop on my lap last night…LOLOL!! (I guess that is why they call it a laptop.) LOLOL!!

I did not even get a chance to say good night to Sirius and Ella.

I am tired of being tired. If that makes any sense. I fall asleep at a drop of a hat. It is only because I am getting to work so EARLY!!! and I leave work soooo LATE!! :( :(

I am hoping to be back to normal. I just hope that life gives me back my normalcy SOON. :( :(

Sir Charles misses me too…He spends a lot of time cuddling with me. Something he did not do as often before because I was home a lot more. So i guess that is his way of saying I miss you.

I have the new dog who is adjusting to our lifestyle. …it is a little more sedate than a home with TWO kids which is what were he came from. So he is still a little too hyper for our life. We have to keep reminding him that hyperness is for the back yard and that quiet is for inside the house. :)

The Lab keeps looking at him like…“Are you insane?….sit down.” The terrier can jump about 4 feet into the air reppeatedly when he is excited. (By the way he is a Rat Terrier.)

LadyHawke I want to say you made me laugh….

The grisly reality it just a little too grisly. I’m not too sure about actual running and chasing contact with bad guys either. Can’t they hire someone to do that? – Posted by Lady Hawke on May 09, 2009, 01:34 AM

YES….that is my thought EXACTLY ….Unfotunetaly that is WHAT HE WAS HIRED TO DO. :( :(

Lemon He really would have not told me anything except I prodded him into giving me the details. For THREE days I did not see him that much. He would get home go to bed….I get up super early and when I return from work he is gone to work. :( So when I go the chance I made sure we spoke about his work week. I really would much rather know, than not know.

Won Right now his FIRST work shift is from 3:00 PM – 11:00 PM which is the hardest shift of the day. It is when people are the most active.

But because he is a Rookie…his shift will change next month. His shift will be from 11:00PM – 7:00 AM. Then after a month of that shift his shift will change again to 7:00 am – 3:00 PM. He will experience all three shifts one month at a time. For now he is on what they consider the hardest shift.
