I'm in GISHWHES (greatest international scavenger hunt the world has ever seen). It's fun. I'm currently making a seagull out of tampons and maxi pads. A thing I would have never experienced without randomacts in my life. Woo!

It's hard to top that, but I've been on an herbal medication for four weeks. For the last week and a bit I've actually had an increase in energy and a slight decrease in pain. But the energy? Good timing. I'm ecstatic.

Got to try on new turnouts, and it looks like my days of wearing borrowed (and way too big) boots and bunker gear may be numbered. Like hopefully ending on Friday.

Congrats, Slarti! A little suck there but still, awesome ^^

My win? It's related to the suck I just posted. While my connection may suck merry sweaty asscracks-worth of balls, mom's agreed to use the money she owes me from Way Back When to buy us actual, real, WiFi broadband. Real internets! That won't cut down at 4pm and randomly kick me every five minutes! And which will actually have a LANDLINE wtf.

WOOOO.

Though on the bright side to the ass, we made well over a thousand pounds at the bazar, mom and I were working on the cake store and we sold out, mom sold all but two of her homemade jams and preserves and despite the bad news it was a really fun day.

And my cousin Peter and his fiancée Cassy are gonna be parents in the new year :) They're expecting a little girl.

I've finally found something that actually really helps the fatigue from the fibro - not takes it all away but not just a slight leg up either. I still couldn't hold down your average 9-5 desk job but I can manage to ferry the kids around, do a bit of shopping and clean the house up a bit all in one day without vomiting or being unable to move the next day. Hurrah!

Yay, Paws!

All I can say that comes even close is that nobody in my fire district died last week. Yayyy! (Line of duty injuries, though, are a subject for the other thread....)

Kind of a mixed astounding, but I'll focus on the positive. A firefighter from my district who was recently injured in the line of duty was not only home from the hospital, but in good enough shape to hang out for a bit and endure my onslaught of well-wishes and pumpkin bread.

Go Bob!


And Tears, that's a plus. I talked to you earlier, so hopefully everything goes over well with what you spoke of. Once they get that blood pressure down, things should start going looking upwards. Trust me, experience.

Ad Chick's missing brother and niece turned up today. Not my awesome, but I felt so terrible for her and her family that it sort of is.

Short back story is that her brother is mentally handicapped (clinically retarded; mental age of a 12-year-old) and for years has been abused by his wife, as in, she has tried to kill him. He has two kids, though they may not be his (the wife has eight other kids, all by different guys, and all have been taken away), and the youngest is six years old, not potty trained, not in school, still drinks from a bottle and earlier this year was almost removed from the home because she had body lice so bad she had open sores. For years, Ad Chick's family has tried to work with the county government where they live to get the kids removed from the home and the brother out of the situation. I've been hearing these horror stories for years and tried to give advice on who to contact. Well, recently the family talked the brother into leaving, moving in with his parents in another county that actually has competent services. The day they went to pick him and the kids up, they get a call from the wife saying something had happened and he wasn't leaving. The parents called bullshit and went anyway, but when they got there, the brother and the youngest girl were missing.

They've been missing for two weeks. The police were involved in the search, Ad Chick had hired an attorney in preparation to sue the county, and they expected him to turn up dead. They'd contacted state representatives, our senators, all the way to the governor's office. Every day she, her sisters and her parents have been calling his cell phone. I put her in touch with the press in that city to try to expand the search and get some attention onto this horrible problem and the county's incompetence.

Just about a half hour ago, she called his cell phone and he answered it. Apparently he had run away, and taken the kid. It's still a terrible situation, but at least now she knows they're alive and where they are and they can try to move ahead from there.

Holy crap.

What is it with the lice? That's the second time I've heard of people removed for *lice* and now I just cannot help but itch all over again, but very good they're both found.

I know right?!!? She told me about the lice when we went out to lunch last spring and I was just ....uar4ghaljovoajv48vsnvugh, y'know?

Apparently child services wouldn't take the kid because they got rid of the lice within a week. Well yay for them, but what about the other issues? Apparently, the kid has no bed - never has, not even a crib. She sleeps on the sofa (probably where she got the lice). Ad Chick's parents dragged her off to the children's hospital in KC to get her tested for biological developmental problems like the brother... and apparently, she's normal. She's just so neglected that she's developmentally delayed. How does that not warrant removal from the home??

MY NIECE CLARA IS WALKING!!

Just... not in this picture...

AT ONLY 9-10 months!

It's sort of a sexist fact, but most times girls are talking before they're walking! This is awesome! She's already getting a pink basketball hoop from Santa for Christmas!! :D :D

Uncle's kidneys aren't taking things very well since the heart attack, but other than that he's still improving. I guess he went from 70% oxygen to 40% yesterday, and he'd just gone down to 70 on Tuesday.

From what his wife says, all the doctors and nurses are calling him the miracle of the hospital.

Considering we got no calls this week (so far), some of us put in a lot of extra work at the fire station anyway, catching up on equipment inventories, cleaning, and reorganizing. The commissioners bought us lunch today as a reward.

I also got a little practice driving one of the big pump trucks. (Though the rescue truck remains my favorite, I'd been wanting to at least get comfortable driving the big monsters just in case.)

Kids may be trying at times, but they are also an unintentional comedy act. My daughter just yelled at my son "Quit teabagging me!".

I managed not to laugh because I didn't want to explain that one.
