Do not think I am insensitive.. I just need to escape..blog world allows me to do so...
Thank you for your sweet droplets of kind words..
I am living an absolute nightmare right now...
Note:  I have suspended my other blog for awhile.. I need to take a mental break..

BYOC Friday!!!!! ♥♪ Bring Your Own Crazy ♥♪
It’s Friday which means it’s BYOC time. That’s Bring Your Own Crazy….5 little questions you can copy and paste into your own blog to give your brain a break and to get to know your fellow bloggers better.

1. If you were on death row, what would your last meal be before your “death”?
Well the band really screws me up on this one.. so I am going to say I will need a deflation, an unfill, a real pull the plug on the band to be able to gorge my pie hole..
So for that last meal... I would want a good plate of spagehetti and meatballs, with fresh grated parmesean, garlicy bread, and a bottle of Cab.

2. If you drive a car, do you speed?
I do not really speed, although the car I drive seems to go fast.  I mean I have one of those high performance cars, so its not me, its just how the car runs.. I did get a speeding ticket like 6 or 7 years ago.. I cried like a baby and all I could think to say to the cop was "other people were going faster than me, why don't you go after them"... no sympathy..I got the ticket, and the points..

3. What movie(s) do/can you watch over and over again?
I am with Draz.. I love Christmas Vacation.. in fact we watch it quite often (especially when we are tipsy).. we know the lines by heart!  We also watch Duece Bigelo, American Gigilio.. yeah really sophisticated stuff..

4. What’s your favorite blog topic to read about and your favorite blog topic to write about?

Read about:  I love success stories.. or when people pose a question about how did you solve this problem or manage this situation.. I like to help or problem solve.

Write about:  Well, no surprise, I like researching and writing about stuff, I also like to lay things out and just tell it like it is and to address accountability..

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blogland and in real life.
Blogland.. not so much.. I take a peak here and there and try to escape my real life

Real life:  I honestly don't know how much more I can bear to have my DH go through, to bear to watch, to deal with in real life. when it rains, it pours...and right now my life is a monsoon....
I am despartely waiting for a break in the storm, a slight bit of sunshine, something, anything to grasp onto..


  1. Hey Barb, I'm glad you are escaping and giving yourself a reprieve and taking care of yourself.

    Thinking of you..Rachel

  2. Hey doll...I tried to get on your other blog and it said the site was only for invited guests and wouldn't let me on. I just wanted to make sure if everything was alright or if anything had changed.
    Love ya.

  3. You do what you can to get some escape. You are in my thoughts.

  4. My dear, you are in my prayers.

  5. You and your husband have been and continue to be in my prayers. I pray that behind the rain, there is a rainbow to reveal nothing but sunny days ahead for you and yours.

  6. And I hope a few rays of sunshine come out tomorrow.

    But I'd join you for some of that bottle of Cab. I can probably recite almost every line of Cmas Vacation too. Love when they cut into the turkey!

  7. I'm hoping and praying for some sunshine for you and your husband!

    Clearly I need to see Cmas Vacation which I never have....hmmm

  8. Hoping and praying for you x

  9. B-- I'm so sorry to hear things are rough right now, and I don't want to disappear on you, but I've had something freaky occur on my blog...

    Here is what I posted, but then locked my blog:
    One stupid anon comment has me seriously freaked out.
    The anon who wrote the post said they found my linked in page and though they were not 'nefarious'-- they warned me against putting too much up on my blog.
    I think I need to lock my blog for now.

    If you want to reach me, you can email me at:
    I will let you know my plans from there-- otherwise, not sure how to handle this potential and concerning breach of my privacy (which I know I really don't have on the internet, but I have never identified my first and last name on this blog so WTF?)

  10. I am so sorry to hear about your DH. You both must be exhausted. Hang ing there, sweetie.

  11. Thinking of you Barb..xo

  12. Never ever for one second does anyone think you are insensitive. You are getting through each moment the best you can...that's all you can really do....and God willing - our prayers will help you.
