Just a reminder to all of you over these next few days. The weather reports all over are talking extreme heat. Those of you out West have even warmer temperatures than here in the Midwest or East. Please keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Hopefully all of you have air in your homes. If not, please find a friend or relative that has air and see if you can go there. Otherwise, find out where the cooling centers in your neighborhood or town are and use them. Please take care not to over exert yourself and check in here.

Sorry Michelle, meant to thank you for the pointers you gave me to find work and I really appreciate it and taking your advice in the New Year so wish me luck.  I don't have any children, but do get along with all ages.

Hi Michelle ...  This is a card site I've used for 8 years and they're beautiful cards.  It's $12/mo.  Could have gone up a little, but doubt it.  You'll love the cards.  If you want free sites let me know.

Glad you enjoyed my post.  Boy, was I insulted and mad.  He was no spring chicken either and I should have asked him when he was retiring before he ran out of wind.  LOL

@Renae, I am so sorry, hon. I wish that caring families and friends were more common. Anyone that needs to talk, please message me any time. I will try to reply quickly.

By chance, do any of  you know of a good place to find grief holiday ecards? I looked through BlueMountain, 123greetings, etc. I wanted to send one to my husband's family. I forgot to buy cards this year and thanksgiving is tomorrow!

@Masrha, that is so wonderful to hear about your good mood.

A part time job, and your volunteering, are both wonderful ideas.

If you like children, I know that a lot of teachers can use help, especially in the K-3rd grade classes. With reading and guiding children through assignments.Or some teachers just need help with filing, photocopying and grading after school :)

Libraries need help with organizing books (in public libraries and schools).

I loved to read this from you "This woman isn't going down without a fight and know that I've been here!!!  I'll leave a crater the size of Connecticut!"
