She decided the one who got the "prize egg" in the Easter egg hunt was the queen of the galaxy.

I don't know about that but she did get $5.
I would give my eye teeth to be Queen of the Galaxy! Next year, please alert me as to the location of this particular Easter egg hunt.

It is so hard to hear this. I remember when my best friend was hospitalized & subsequently died. Such a shock. Especially when you don't even get the chance to say goodbye. My friend was in a coma by the time I found out so I didn't get the chance to say goodbye.

It's going to be hard for you for quite a while. Give yourself plenty of time & permission to grieve. It took me years before I got to the point of not crying.

You may want to check out the grief forum. It really helped me after my son's death.

Well, my City-Data streak is over. It had been going for one year, five months, 3 weeks, and 4 days, but it came to an abrupt end yesterday at 10:03am. I guess it's time to reset the clock. Let's see, so far I'm at 1 day, 2 hours, and 56 minutes, lol.

I think Hurley and John Locke will help you reset that clock, but don't forget to push the button.

Finally a chance to get back here. Thank you guys for your caring. It is so appreciated.


I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that my friend is gone. I'm going to see her mom today and pick up all the stuff I loaned them for her to use when she came home. All she wants to use now is the toilet riser and I don't blame her. It was so convenient for me I kept using it after I didn't need to anymore.


To those who mentioned it...yes, I know I have friends here. And I care so much for all of you. You're about the closest thing I have to family who CARES anymore.


Yesterday at work was a hard one. The day from he!!. I don't think I've ever seen/heard such grouchy and hateful customers. Everybody was talking about it so I know it wasn't just me. One of our greeters got two bags of 'stuff' dumped on him, and cussed out, just because he asked to check a woman's receipt. Upper management and security are on them HARD to do it but the customers resent it...a lot. Most of them shop at Costco and I bet they don't do that there! Another greeter almost got decked for the same reason. It's crazy. I didn't want to be there in the first place but figured, since it was my Friday, I'd make it okay. I did...barely. I'm cutting my hours May 1st and I can't wait!
