Mikie: have you tried a small piece of fresh ginger in your green drink, or perhaps some lemon along with the greens and apple? It might just give that "zing" you want in your drink. I've never heard of a knife sanitizer.....interesting. When I use a knife I try to wash if first then slowly pour boiling water over it to rinse......it's a pain but germs can lurk there. And I hope you get some relief from the doc on friday. I've always had a "psychic" sense stemming from about age 10. I mostly had specific dreams that came true, or very strong feelings and just KNEW something. It's kept me from danger so many times in my past. I'm a Christian and now look at this as one of the gifts of the Spirit. Whenever I'm troubled about something and praying for an answer, I usually will receive it......either from a specific passage in the bible that leaps out at me, or from someone else......something they've said or I've heard. Granni: that's such an awful hour to have to get to the hospital. Praying that all went perfect today. Hope you're not hurting as much. It's hard when we can't rest and have to "be up" and stressed. Julie: Did the casts come off yet? And I keep forgetting to tell you what thoughtful daughters you have......you've taught them right. Jam: Don't get me wrong about the TJ wine.......if my budget would allow it, I would be enjoying much more expensive wine, but seeing how we have wine daily, it can run into big bucks. I'm a thrifty shopper, have shopped in thrift stores for years, but also buy good quality shoes. Some I still wear that over 20 years of living in my closet. Shopping at garage sales, estate sales, and thrift stores is how I managed to have a small antique business. I grew up very poor so I know how to stretch a buck, but I also know how to spend it wisely. My DH saw a psychiatrist yesterday re the depression He's now got a RX for something I've never heard of......we'll see if it helps. Today he sees the ortho doc re: the MRI on his knee, and also the oncologist. Sigh.....it never ends. I need to get a life for me.
