Hi, and good morning, everyone:-) Got your coffee/tea/etc.? Good.
Yep, I'm still living in a whirl of panic about Mr. Leo, AKA Hubby. I am being optimistic with such enthusiasm 12 hours a day that I spend the other 12 exhausted and scared. I suck at all this "I'll be fine" routine. Too much PTSD (diagnosed) involved.
But I survived the dentist!
EDITED B/C DS MESSED UP FORMATTING AGAIN!!!!
Famous last words:
"The safety catch is pointless." (referring to the one on a gun)
"Hold my beer."
"Anyone can do that. Watch."
"The ice looks safe." (Where I grew up, alas, often someone's last words. At least till they were defrosted...)
"Of course, it's unloaded." (Admittedly, sometimes the last words someone *hears*, having trusted the speaker.)
"I don't need a map." (PRobably not the actual last words, bu tthe last ones known before someone sets off and is on an episode of Missing People..)
"They can't hit an elephant at this distance." Actual last words of US General J Sedgwick, when warned by an aide of enemy snipers. A sniper got him within moments of his saying that.
In 1808, Harvard University formed the first college orchestra in the US. And still, nobody pays much attention to these things. Poor college orchestras. *sigh*
Happy Birthday to Toronto, Ontario, Canada --- sort of. Today in 1834, it was renamed from "York" to Toronto.
In 1886, the first nursing journal was published. It was titled "The Nightingale" for famed nurse Florence Nightingale. More modern ones include "American Journal of Nursing" and similar.
Remember the ALamo! No, seriously. Today in 1836, the siege of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, ended. The army of 3,000 under Santa Anna finally defeated 189 very stubborn men. Nice video and stuff via this link, if you can get your video to work. Mine won't. http://www.thealamo.org/
In 1960, Switzerland finally got around to granting women the right to vote in municipal elections. Yeah. National, sure. Local, no. Wait, what? *headdesk*****
And now to pretend I'm okay. Whee. Healing to all, and hugs as well....
I really hate when DS stops recognizing line breaks/enters unless doubled.... ARGH.
Ok i just put the kettle on who wants a cup of tea? Dont worry Bill ive got stuff for you as well!
My sister and I experienced similar traumas and abuse. I enjoyed a great St. Patrick's day with her in from out of state. She coped with our sexual, physical, and emotional abuse differently. I get that. I hate that she is free to enjoy sex with anyone but that concept is paralyzing for me even with someone I trust. For her it's like filling a need but not important. It's unhealthy...
