    Here's to all of you wonderful people and for a much better year for each of us!

    I know this has been a very difficult year for many, aside from dealing with these darn DD's. May 2006 bring healing and peace.

    I am getting ready to pop a bottle of the 'Bubbly'.. would you like to share some with me? I have the glasses chilling. Or maybe bottled water, soda, wine, or a hot cup of coffee or tea? I have them all.

    You might want to bring some good munchies to share. I am serving hot artichoke and cheese dip with torn french bread. Hmmmm, I will have to check the pantry to see what else!

    Here's to all of us and our loved ones. We are brave and as Gloria Gaynor sings.. "I/We WILL SURVIVE, I/WE WILL SURVIVE!!

    Come make yourself at home. My home is your home...

    Here's to us ALL!!!!

    Love,

    Kim

    What a loving message and fun too. Hope you have a better 2006 and may the Earth get more Peace.

    I was just thinking about people all over the world who also have our DD and no help at all, people in war torn counries, people in poor nations-even though it is bad to worse a lot of days for us here, we have our shelter and food, and computers so we can chat this way. How lonely it must be for some.

    I am feeling good as my leg pain really diminished a great deal tonight. One of my cats had the last of his remaining six teeth removed and the minute he got home, headed straight for the food dish, bless him-if only we could tolerate pain that well!

    Happy 2006
    Love Cromwell

    for making us feel like us "sickies" are creating as normal a night as possible.

    As for us (hubby/me), we're having some Chardonnay, tylenol, salad wraps w/peanut sauce & humorous videos.

    I'm so glad I do my big time partying in my early years, so I can't complain about not being able to do it anymore.

    Besides, we've developed such fine tastes in food, etc. that we prefer to hang around home........no noise......no bright lights.........no sick people.........and no food w/chemicals in them.

    New lifestyle; leaders of the new age.

    That sounds wonderful !

    Hmm I will bring lots of whipped cream to top our hot chocolate for after the bubbly and some microwaveable heating pads ( my favourite!) and a couple of soft comfy throws..

    How about some pizza? Good old comfort food :D

    May 2006 bring you health, wealth and happiness.

    Will be putting the 4 little ones (2,3,6 & 6) to bed within the hour. They usually go to bed about 8:30 - I'm letting them stay up to celebrate! LOL 15 year old has 2 friends spending the night, 20 year old is out with her boyfriend & 23 year old got her own apartment this week. Having a tough day - backache really bad today. Supposed to go for xrays but the place was closed today so I guess I'll do that Tuesday at the earliest. I made some salsa for nachos & bought 4 wine coolers but I'm sure I won't drink any of them since it's likely I'll need pain meds to sleep. Hope 2006 is a good year for all!!! God Bless.

    I`m staying home too with my husband and one son. The 15 year old is out at his friends house. We had some yummy mac and cheese, some vegetables with ranch dip. We`re also having some chocolate fondoe with cake, marshmellows and fruit. I`ll share with you, it is delicious.

    Its pretty nice staying home with great people like all of you to chat with. Happy 2006!!!

    Keep on bringing that food! My resolution is to lose major weight! Looks like that will wait until tomorrow!

    Love the comfy pillows, warmers, movies, etc., that you all have brought! Isn't this fun? I am truly, truly enjoying this.

    Can I get you some ice while I am up????

    the four of us (me, hubby and 2 daughters) went out to a friend's house earlier where we were treated to homemade pizza and chinese food, brownies and cake. Due to snowy weather conditions we came home early (wouldn't have stayed late any way).

    So now I am free to party with my favorite FM and CFS friends, and I'll bring the shrimp cocktail!

    Happy New Year to All,

    I've got some home made Christmas cookies and fudge and that champagne sounds good to me too.

    I can't drink much, but I'll toast to all of us on the board for a GREAT NEW YEAR!

    I'll be staying home also. My children, hubby and I will be bringing in the new year together. We've been playing board games and eating munchies. I really don't believe I'd have it any other way either! I have a girlfriend that is my same age (34) and she left her kids and she is out on the town. My husband and I will share a toast of bubbly, but other than that we're gonna have a blast with our children. So, Kim I'd love to do karoke with you and sing our survival song together!

    Wishing you ALL a happy, safe, healthy, prosperous New year!

    My rockin' chair has cooled down now ... and I am ready to party!!!!!

    I also have to leave a note for hubby and tell him I'm off to a party!!!!

    I'm leaving the ole' guy to fend for himself in the morning, cause I'm won't be in any shape to fix breakfast or lunch for him when I get home!

    This party is a sleepover, isn't it?!!! Nothing better than getting a room full of Chatty Cathies together--regardless of our ages! Never met a woman who didn't like to talk and perhaps gossip a little!!!! If we run out of stuff to talk about, we can always talk about cute doctors!!!! (Duh! Did I say that .... in a room full of women who probably hate their doctor???? Dumb me!!)

    I'm making a pile on my couch. I've got my sleeping bag, couple comfy pillows, jammies, my suitcase full of meds, and my cane.

    I'll pick up a few more pizzas on the way. I'll also throw a case of bottled water in the care for those who can't drink anything like me ..... those stupid heart drugs and other meds really mess up my fun!!

    Throw out the old junk in your freezer, too, because I am bring a tons of ice cream!!!!!!!!!! My favorite!! I'll bring the type in those round containers and a bunch of spoons so we all can have our own carton and eat away!!

    If you all need anything else before I get there, give me a ring on my cell phone!!

    See you all in a few!!!

    Hugs,
    Janet

    Thank you to all of you! Way too much food, but what the heck! Those resolutions start today!

    I am sorry I fell asleep at 11:00 p.m.! Too much excitement for me! Maybe it was the champagne with the strawberries Patti brought?! Coupled with all of the delicous food!

    As I have said, what a wonderful way to spend the New Years! Being with people we truly care for and enjoy! We are a fortunate group!!

    Thank you for everything you brought (lol) and for joining us. Being with each other in SPIRIT, is so very important.

    We will have to clebrate next year also!

    Warmest wishes for a New Year of Hope and Health...

    Hugs,

    Yes, lets do it again next year. Kim you are lots of fun and like someone else said, your the perfect host. I`ll bet you have thrown some great parties in your life.

    I`m still not off the goodies today. What the heck, its New Year`s day. I am going to improve my lifestyle this year by exercizing and eating as much healthy stuff as I can stand.
