I said all this stuff earlier about how I'm thankful a couple of my kids are in Ohio taking dinner to their friend. But right now I miss them and I take it all back :(( Hmph.

Good book, good movie: Life of Pi. We saw it in 3D, which I recommend. It did not hurt to have the Pacific pounding away a few blocks over. Beautiful movie. Ang Lee is a genius.

I am on the Left Coast, up in Yachats, OR. I have to return to the wilds of Connecticut on Friday, but I do appreciate the invitation. I have to be back in class on Monday. A friend lives out here to take care of her mother, a native of the coast, so I've been coming out for Thanksgiving. The weather here has been amazing, with horizontal rain on Monday and yesterday two hailstorms lasting about one minute each. We just have hurricanes and Nor'easters, which are easier to deal with. There are supposed to be three cougars in the hills up near my friend's house, so a warning to bring in children and pets went out.

No, it's just a RNAV waypoint, not mandatory.

Has the house floated away yet?? :shock: :shock: :shock: We've has some amazing rain, and I know that the storm was much worse where you are! Just what you wanted on your trip to the coast! (But the coast is so amazing in the storms.)[sekrit]We've had a few cougar sightings ... on campus. :dontwanttolook:[/sekrit]

O Hai! How y'all doin? It's oh-dark-thirty here where I am. I'd LOVE to be in bed, asleep, choirs of angels singing me to my rest. But my mom keeps waking up every half hour or so, getting dressed and turning on every light she can get to before I stop her, get her back into her nightgown and into bed.For the record, I'm mean to her and she's really not happy that I keep making her go back to bed.I would like to take this time to mention that I am less than impressed with the new anti-depressant mom started taking tonight, the one that's supposed to also knck her out.AAAAAUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHH!!!!![edit]Edit to add the aitch[/edit]

Well, it never rains but it poars. In this case more appropriate than normal.Basiclly, Remember the kidney stone from last month? Well the other kidney felt left out and is thinking "I can do better then that!" so not is this kidney in pain (though not nearly as intense as the last one), its now turning my urine a healthy red colour! Its always nice to see the good signs of internal bleeding. So yes, I'm on my way to hospital tomorrow, for lots of fun sitting in A&E again. And this time for something genuinely and potentially life threatening! Woohoo! What fun.So I'll probably talk to you all next week sometime.

I would like to take this time to mention that I am less than impressed with the new anti-depressant mom started taking tonight, the one that's supposed to also knck her out.

Not sure which anti-depressant mom is taking, but some patients find that the SSRIs, like Prozac and Zoloft, cause insomnia instead of tiredness. Tricyclic antidepressants, such as amitriptyline, are really effective for sleep, but they can be easily overdosed on, so you have to watch that. Trazadone is good for sleep as well.

Celexa is the new one, lexapro the old. I'm familiar with the lexapro since I used to take it. OCD, y'know; want me to count something for you over and over again? Tough, I don't do that anymore. [-( Cognitive therapy combined with drug therapy would appear to have benefits.Anyway, night two, tonight, she's down for the count. I am less unimpressed at this time.
