Re: What's New/super legit maths forum

whatever works.

Catnap - my aunt (really, Dad's sister if you recall) and her husband had acupuncture to help with smoking cessation.

They both said it worked!

I wish I could get over being so frightened trying to walk with a cane. Sis has about talked me into getting a new one with a straight handle and a wrist band. The one I've TRIED to used is Dad's. So, I'm going to look into a new one.

I cannot explain, nor do I want to, how terrified I was the other day. I don't like being in tears, but I was almost ready to have a breakdown. And, I so very rarely do anything like that.

So, something's gotta change. Heal faster, which I can't do with just my mind, or find some other way to cope. I have to be more independent.

Re: What's New/super legit maths forum

I should clarify - Aunt Helen was really my Dad's first cousin. His mother died when he was 1, and at the time, fathers were not deemed as able single parents. So he went to live with Great Aunt Amy. Amy was an amputee, and around the time Dad was 4-5, she was having severe problems so he and Amy (my middle name, btw) were sent to live with Great Aunt Mary, Amy's sister. They had 2 daughters, Helen and Ruth. Helen was about the same age as Dad, and they became great friends, comrades, lifelong friends, really. So, she's not really an aunt, but I am not sure how to describe the relationship.

Cousin once removed? Aunt-cousin? I don't know. Those labels confuse me.

Sounds like Wartie will kill himself sooner than I will myself.

Sis will go shopping with me to find a new cane. I do need help. I hope I can last until Saturday.

Re: What's New/super legit maths forum

Why are you planning on killing me, gertie?

In other news, I suspect that you will actually last until Saturday, and most probably beyond.

Re: What's New/super legit maths forum

I'm certainly not doing that. I thought your concoction was enough to do you.

I like having you around.

Forgive me, all you folks, I'm having to learn how to deal with new things, and it ain't easy.

Re: What's New/super legit maths forum

I'm envisioning this upcoming winter and it scares me. Yes, I've lived through Ohio, Canada, Iowa, New York, all kinds of Northern and North West state winters. But I can't stand it now (make a joke - I will later).

I do not know what I was going to say, but hey, I tried to say something.

See you later.

Oh, temperatures here have lingered around 80, and winter is typically about 6-10 weeks long. If longer than that, I don't know what I would do.

I've got to be happy about something. Maybe I'll dream about it.

Re: What's New/super legit maths forum

Hope the new dosage helps, Warty. I think my hub is taking his blood pressure meds on an "as need" basis, which is not how that works. :/

I broke a CFL bulb and did everything wrong on the hazmat cleanup. Vacuuming apparently spreads the mercury vapor everywhere, so now I'm here in my mercury cloud, awaiting my gruesome end.

I was in the midst of a big clean in the bedroom, and so far have broken a vacuum, a lamp, and the nuclear light bulb. It would have been more efficient to just use lighter fluid and a match.

Re: What's New/super legit maths forum

Maturin!

I'm freaking out this morning about several things, none of which are very important but I'm stressing anyway.

One involves having the entire Varsity soccer team over for a meal this weekend. I hope they like burned food served with undercooked food and brownie cake.

I'm sure they'll be fine as long as you have enough of it.




I'm ready to be done with today. That doesn't happen often. Usually the day goes by so fast and I'm so busy that I just kind of look up like "huh, it's time to go home now."

But today it's Friday and I'm tired and we're all caught up on planning and copies, so it's planning period for another solid hour, and I have nothing to do. I mean I could go clean the fridge in the teacher's lounge (considering it) but I'm also tired. And it's Friday. And I want to go home.
So I'm going to sit here and move random scraps of paper around and pretend I'm doing stuff.
