Light posting

14 Sep

I apologize for not getting more up on the site lately.  We have a member of the household going through chemo treatments these days and it’s starting to take its effect on them.  It’s not me.  I wish it were…

I will try to get going again soon.

    Soffitrat There is no doubt in my mind that many of us are aware and feel as I do.

    Family comes FIRST! We’re praying for both of you.

      Thanks, Roger. We will still be here. Posting on what strikes us. I still think that something occurring is imminent, and (now) only hope that we can get through this before it does.

      Thanks Pick. It’s the wife. Breast cancer, but they got it all. Just has to go through the Chemo and then radiation. She’ll be fine. Not sure about me, but she’ll be fine. Next week will be her third. The one that’s suppose to knock her on her butt 🙂

    You take care of K and the blog can wait. I think everyone understands, and its not like the fedgov is going to find religion overnight and fix itself, with or without our input.

      Seriously, we will get through this one too. In time for the fun to begin.

          Don’t have much of a choice!

    Well we actually do have a choice ‘rat, we can be down and out all the time, which isn’t like you. Or we can take it in stride and do the best we can with what we have to work with. I think that is more in keeping with the Soffitrat I know!!

    My dad used to say…”when we get so low we hit rock bottom there is no where else to go but back up again”. But I admit there were times when I thought he was full of crap!!

    Remember, we’re gonna sit on the porch and drink a pot of coffee some morning when this is all over.

    rat: That cancer thingy is a tough one. It is easy to be lackadasical until it is one of your loved ones is hit with it. Then things change and platitudes no longer work. I’ll add you all to my prayers and if I can help I’ll stand ready at least in a small way.

      Thanks, Jamie. And you are so right.

    Well tell her she isn’t allowed to give up and you all got stuff to do! We got beer and wine to drink and a lot more complaining about the PTBs and their nonsense.

      Thanks. I haven’t been able to even check in much lately. You are right though, when you say “the real stuff”. I appreciate you.

    Damn! I got what I wished for! Found out, upon wife’s completion of her Chemo and radiation, that I now have cancer! Renal. Not good. They are giving me 1 to 3 years. To live! That said, wife is doing fine now. Ain’t life grand?
