Sorry it’s been so long. Yesterday was a long, annoying, very unproductive day! Because Tom insisted I go to the doctor immediately he didn’t let me wait for my doctor. I saw someone new in the practice, let’s just call him Doogie! I don’t believe in seeing doctors that are not old enough to shave! Basically my blood pressure is a bit low at times. That’s it. But this boy wants to put me through every test know to mankind!

I was so annoyed by the time it was all over yesterday that Tom and I were both ill with each other and our evening was not very pleasant. I guess some of it was my fault but Tom was over reacting too. Anyway today was much better. I was still a little mad when I woke up (and sore) but Tom was sweet and loving and we went to the river to spend the day, much more pleasant and relaxing way to spend the day than at the doctor.

I am not going to have any more tests until I see my doctor and we try some other things to see if it helps. I have been looking on the internet and checking out some causes and treatment and I don’t think a million tests will be necessary. And I am putting my foot down about this!

We made it home!! The trip was great although it seemed short to me. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and that you are continuing to enjoy your holiday weekend. I have no wild tells to tell from this trip, sorry, but I managed to behave myself pretty well. Sue and the other girl are doing fine. Sue really does seem happier than I have every know her. More relax and happy.

One reason I behaved so well is that I am still having problems with dizziness. And yes I have kept Tom informed about the problem so back to the doctor for a few more test. I don’t hurt any where, no headaches or anything but sometimes when I get up I am very dizzy and sometimes it is pretty severe but it seems to go away in a minute or so.

When I told Tom I told him to leave my keys alone. I won’t be going long distances by myself and the only time I am dizzy is when I first get up, either in the morning or sometimes from just sitting a while – but not all the time. I told him I wouldn’t go far and I would be careful when I got out of the car but there was no reason I couldn’t drive at all.

I got a piercing look and no comment but my keys are still on the hook. I just feel that it would not be in my best interest to hop in the car and head off without telling him where I am going. But I am happy to be back home. The house is decorated now and it looks wonderful! I assume we will be on our own for Christmas but I like it that way. Tom and I do pretty well for ourselves and I can’t think of one person on earth I would rather be with!

Off Again!

I have been delighted with the friends who have made themselves known in the last few days. I am hoping that even more will gradually feel comfortable leaving a comment or emailing but even if you are not ready to do that please keep coming back.

Tom and I are headed out west this weekend. We are spending Thanksgiving with our friends. Tom asked me the other day if I thought I could spend a whole week with Sue without getting in trouble. I told him he was the one who caused the trouble – if he wasn’t so bossy and over protective and just let us do what we want to then their would be no trouble. What is it Eva says, “Step away from the hairbrush and nobody gets hurt!” He laughed and hugged me and popped my rear so hard I know the neighbors heard!

You have to understand I truly do not go looking for trouble! I never do, but I like to let my hair down with these friends. I play the part of genteel southern lady quite well. I don’t mind the part but Sue and Anna and the other know it’s just an act! Well for the most part anyway. If Tom would just let up on me some when I am with the girls it would help. But regardless we always have a lovely time.

I want to take the laptop but I don’t know if I can. If not I can still do email on one of their computers but Tom would blister my butt if I went near blogs on their machine. I really would love to introduce Sue to the blogs but Tom has put his foot down and I never tangle with him too much about the computer. As long as he leaves me alone to play here I won’t rock the boat.

In case I don’t get to post again until we get back I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Denise

I got this comment on my site yesterday and the simple question Denise asked truly got me thinking and I wanted to answer her here.

Hi Cassie,

i am sorry to use your comments for my question however, i am not sure where to go for this answer.

Why are some of you ladies choosing to go private? i know i lurk but that is because i have no experience to share or wisdom to offer. i am sorry if my lurking is deemed disrespectful but i gain so much from living vicariously through each and every one of you who have been so kind to share through your blogs.

Now it seems that one by one i have less access and of course that is their right i was just wondering why is all.

Thank you for allowing me this indulgence. i hope that you do not decide the same fate for this blog. i just adore you and love being permitted the fly on the wall view into your life and heart.


Denise honey I just want you to know that you are welcomed out here and you can ask any question that comes to mind. I know you were welcomed at these ladies blogs too. They are some of the most caring supportive women I know. We all love our lurkers we just don’t always know that you are out there.

Each of these ladies had good reasons for going private I hate that it had to happen but please don’t you go away. Actually you may have more to add than you might know. I am always interested in who is reading here. I don’t want to pepper you with questions but I would love to get to know you. I am pleased you spoke up.

PK at New Beginning was moved by your question too. And she is posting her thought on the matter; go here to read what she has to say.

I have many friends out here, some blog, some comment and some email me. I think the world of all of these friends. If anyone reads here please let me have the privilege of getting to know you. Denise I especially hope you will email.

I am so bored! Tom has been working for weeks on a charity golf tournament. I know it is for a good cause but I miss my husband. And he is gone all this weekend to for the tournament itself. Yes I could go out there while the actual play is going on but I really don’t care for golf all that much and Tom is going to be very busy so I am staying out of the way. But I am still bored! Do I sound like I am rambling?

I might go to the river. I haven’t taken the time to walk the property by myself and see how I want my yard to look. I know we won’t be there all that much this winter. (We are going to redo the kitchen while we are working) but I want to plant some pansy that usually last most of the cold weather months. I love pansies! So bright and colorful. The house is coming right along and I really wish I could post pictures because it is going to be beautiful. Oh well maybe someday!

Busy, busy, busy

I am so sorry that I haven’t been around too much. Now that I have wheels I am trying to get caught up with everything I put on hold for the last couple of weeks. Tom has been busy helping to plan a golf tournament so I don’t feel like I have seen that much of him for the past few days.

We did go to the river this weekend. There was a neighborhood party and we were invited. Everyone seems so nice. I really hope that we made a good impression. There is a good chance that we will decide to live there full time and I really want the folks there to like us. I really like the family right next door. The wife is young, no more that 50 and the children are delightful. The daughter has just turned 16 and had her own car. Not just any car she told me, but one she is paying for herself! She seemed so proud! She has a brother around 12 or so that went bike riding with me and showed me some wonderful spots. He and his friends are paint ball enthusiasts and I can’t wait to try that!! He also has a scooter but I didn’t ask to try it. Remember I was trying to make a good impression!

I haven’t been able to talk Tom into spending the night at the river until the new room is completed. And from the looks of things that is going to be a while! But oh my goodness it is going to be nice!!

I think we are going get together with our friends over Thanksgiving. We are not sure yet if we are going out there or if they are coming here. I can’t wait to see everyone! Sue and I haven’t gotten into trouble in months! Not that that is ever our intentions! But it is usually the results!
