Writing, reading, painting, drawing, living life
I could start with flygirl254 is a mom and wife and has done this for blah blah blah. But let's keep it simpler than that.
It's who I am.
It's what I love.
It's my life's delight.
And the rest is yet to come.

SHELLEY KAYE was poking me over and over and over...and she was ganging up on me with one of my friends from church!!! My friend's hubby used to have a business near where SHELLEY KAYE lives, so maybe they got together once I moved to Tucson and they made sure that I met my new friend so she and SHELLEY KAYE would get to gang up on me on Facebook and poke me....LMAO!!!! I kept getting lost trying to keep up with the pokes and posts.
And please note I used capital letters to write SHELLEY KAYE!!!!! I would be ROTFLMAO but I am confined to bedrest so rolling on floors is a no-no.
However, I AM still LMAO!!!!! **poke**

if you're smelly and you know it close your nose
if you've gagged elevator riders with doors closed
when you ate your refried beans
then you'll get some gags and screams
for revenge on mean co-workers anything goes!!!

if you're happy and you know it clap your hands
if you're happy and you know it
then your face will surely show it
if you're happy and you know it clap your hands"

Hey there my wonderful friends!! Are any of you planning to come to the Tucson Poetry Festival 2012 - scheduled April 6-7? I've not heard of it until moving here, but it looks awesome with workshops and readings and the Slam Championship to see who's going to the Nationals. I believe the University of Arizona Poetry Center is involved with putting it out there and it's been going for 30 years now.
If you're coming, James and I would love to see you! We might be able to help out with a place to stay if you need it. Both kids would give up their rooms and camp out on the couch!!!!!
With all the deaths in my family in 2011 - I finally am starting to feel as if there is still life in me.

mchapman : Glad to hear yuu are doing well. welcome. It can be very stressful when thing get to be over welling. his flyboy still writing?
January 26, 2012 at 3:31PM
flygirl254 : He is much like me...he has intentions but a cloud of darkness interferes with both of us concentrating. In 2011, flyboy was already worried about his cousin's difficult pregnancy with twins with one getting meningitis, but then he had two grandfathers die, plus a granduncle and my sis-in-law's uncle.
However, last night we were looking into the poetry festival and he wants to enter the Arizona State Poetry Contest! So do I!!
It's time to start healing a bit at a time. :-)
Love to all - flygirl

My Hubby just took James (aka flyboy130) over to the ER. He fell yesterday and hurt his chest and neck, but didn't mention it until later. I've kept an eye on him, but tonight he began having pain that made me very uncomfortable to go further without at least some x-rays. "Pray if you've got 'em," if you know what I mean. I'm truly worried.
January 9, 2012 at 3:39AM
adewpearl : Please tell James his old friend Brooke is thinking about him. Sending all the prayers I have, my friend.
January 9, 2012 at 7:49AM
Amicus : Ouch! Please let James know I am thinking of him and sending healing thoughts zooming his way (as well as comforting ones for
January 9, 2012 at 10:30AM
flygirl254 : Thank you so much! James is happy to have your prayers and to have heard from two of his great FS friends/mentors. He's doing well, no fractures or internal bleeding according to the hospital. He is VERY sore today and can have Tylenol and/or Motrin. He also used the heating pad on his neck but after five minutes wanted it off because it hurt more. But tonight he seems much better.
Thanks again for all prayers!!

It's our four year wedding anniversary today. Hubby had to work, but we're going to have dinner later! :-)

Bellydanser : Happy Anniversary!!

flygirl254 : Thank you!!!!
Four years or a lifetime; we really couldn't tell you the difference when it comes to our relationship. But those are the things that inspire those elusive love lines :-)

Just recently discharged from the hospital here in Tucson. I went to the ER simply to have pain in my knee checked. The ER doc came back and told me my blood tests showed a problem with my heart and I needed to stay. An echo shows the heart's shape is okay but the muscle in one part is actually "worn down" as though it's been trying to pump to the lungs but it's taking it's toll. Cardio hopes it's something simple like sleep apnea that is causing this chamber to work overtime and become damaged.
I also had anemia to the severity that they injected a vial of iron into my vein. Wickedly cool to watch a big thing of black fluid going in. It felt heavy in my arm.
BTW, They did, in fact, check the knee with an MRI and found there are significant changes that I can talk to my ortho about after they get the heart all fixed up. And the prior MRI of my spine shows some bulging and herniation of discs with nerve impingement (again) and also now there is narrowing of the spine (probably from the arthritis in there).
Dagnabbit! I'm falling apart again!! :-)
September 29, 2011 at 5:30AM
adewpearl : I'm glad to hear you're not fully fallen apart yet, Teresa :-) Sending you lots of love, my friend.
September 29, 2011 at 6:07AM
daphymol : With all these troubles you are in here and I like that spirit!
Be positive and things will turn out well
September 29, 2011 at 12:47PM
flygirl254 : Thank you both...I'm resting and waiting for my next appointment with my doctor to find out what will happen next. And my kids have been great about helping. In fact, James has his feet in my face right now! :-)

another jim : Did somebody say CELEBRATION?
All the best to you and YOUR gang, Teresa!

shelley kaye : love that song :)
September 9, 2011 at 11:40AM
flygirl254 : I love it too! It came on the radio when Rob and I were driving to elope.
Thanks you guys for joining us as we, "Celebrate good times!"

daphymol : good nostalgic moments!!!!

I found out on Monday evening that my dad died. We won't be able to return to Illinois, but that is okay because I'm not even sure what I'm feeling right now.
I will check in and out on FS, but may not write or review for a while. I guess it depends on those pesky feelings.
August 31, 2011 at 5:42PM
I don't feel like writing, and I'm sorry about that for my own soul. It's not writer's block, it's the writer wanting to block everything.
Anyway, I'm still here, and I guess that's good because it keeps me familiar with my other writers.
August 28, 2011 at 8:06PM
Lady & Louis : Not wanting to write is normal enough in itself - I have plenty of times when I don't feel like it. It'd be a bit single-minded if we did want to write all the time, I reckon, especially if it was to the exclusion of all else! :)
August 28, 2011 at 9:37PM
daphymol : I know that when we are in a sad and confused mind we will not want to write. give it a little time to get over this tide.

Flat on my back--doc said to keep out of hospital I have to stay down flat and only get up to pee. I have to stretch out the problem area because my Sciatic nerve is obviously being pinched by a disc, this time on the right. Also have to bring pulse and B/P back down which means I'm severely dehydrated right now. It's difficult to use laptop in this position. And truth be told, I don't even feel like writing.
August 27, 2011 at 6:24AM
shelley kaye : EEK! i feel your pain. had that before. i had to have help to sit on toilet to pee - and get back up! still hurts once in awhile too!
can you bend your knees? get some cardboard to put the laptop on and play on it that way.
have your hubby wait on you and bring you LOTS of water!
August 27, 2011 at 10:29AM
adewpearl : I'm so sorry to hear about your latest health issues, Teresa. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, my friend.
August 27, 2011 at 11:16AM
flygirl254 : Thank you Brooke - I need those prayers for physical and emotional reasons...I just don't even have a desire to sit down and write. I do keep coming back to FanStory to fulfill my obligations, but I don't seem to care about much else and that includes writing. Maybe I'm burned out by all the stuff going on lately. Eventually, though, I HAVE to write or I won't be doing what defines my very soul.
and shelley - you are correct about sitting on the toilet - once i get there i just want to stay there and rest but it hurts to sit even if it is on a toilet
one of my knees is swollen from arthritis but i make a point to try bending it at least every hour
one of my favorite things is taking a hot bath and reading and relaxing - i have written poems from the bathtub before - but this time the spinal arthritis and the stinking sciatic nerve makes laying in the bathtub painful
