  1. @sudnlysngl I am so sorry to hear about what happened to you. I have been on blood thinners, you just have to be very careful and you will bruise very easily. Being in the ER that long!!! Wow, can't even imagine. Hugs to you!!!

    I Got A New Car

    And for those of you who keep up with things you probably knew that I don't even have any keys...it starts with a push button! Wow, I am having a great time. Thanks everybody! Have a beautiful Sunday!

    I Got A New Car

    Okay everyone I got a new car. I decided to do another lease as that is easier for me since Mark and I leased for the last 30 years. You basically don't have to worry about anything major happening because you don't have it long enough. I got a candy blue metallic Eco Sport. I went to the dealer by myself and handled everything just fine.

    Arneal, your story is exactly why I have never told Ford Credit what happened. I have heard stories where they want the car back, and the lease payments. So...thanks for the story. Trying2breathe, yes I am glad I am not going to do it alone, and good job on the downsizing, that takes a lot of work and sometimes can trigger memories. So Hugs to you.

    Hi Peg, I quilt. (I say it that way, since I don't know how to make clothes). Since my concentration is not the greatest, I use all of that at work (I own my own business). So, I do charity work, a lot of it. Like Julester3 said, it is a distraction. For at least a little while the most important thing in my world is "Is that a straight stitch?" It helps me get through some really tough times. And like Melissa said, I cry and because of that, don't forget to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. Take care of yourself.

    Thank you soloact and arneal, I never thought about getting the financing in place before going to the dealer. I was just thinking I had to take care of the car insurance (both the car and the insurance are in his name). Thanks for that, I plan to actually start going to look by next week. I have to turn the car in by September 5, not August. August is the last payment, so after that I can turn it in at any time. This car is a lease, I'm not sure if I should lease again, or just buy a used car. I have a friend who going to go shopping with me, and her husband offered to look at any used car to check it out. Thank goodness for friends.

    Hi Peg, I am sorry to welcome to a club no one wants to join. I also lost my husband in February and I agree with Melissa that once the shock wears off it hurts in a different way. I'm not sure if it hurts, just differently. I also feel that coming to this forum has helped me a lot in feeling that what I am experiencing is normal. Don't forget to take care of yourself, keep yourself hydrated, and give yourself a big hug. Laurie

    Returning to Oz…

    Maureen, Reading your post gives me hope that there will be a life after Mark, I'm probably just not quite ready yet. You sound happy and that makes me happy for you. Enjoy life in Kansas!

    Happy Fourth of July!

    @RyanAmysMom Ooooooooo! Very nice, I love them both! I love quilting as it gives me a feeling of making something that will give someone some joy. I made a baby quilt for the receptionist at the dentist office (I needed to stay busy!!!) and she had never gotten a hand made gift, it really made me feel good to know that. Have a great day!
  12. Oh @Bubu27 how awful. That must have made a terrible day even worse. I am 65 and my sister (at 4 and a half months) thinks I should be totally over it. It is amazing that people think this is an easy thing to get over...it's not and I don't know how long it will take. I am so sorry people are making your life harder than it has to be. Hugs to you!

    Happy Fourth of July!

    @RyanAmysMom Maybe we should start a photo gallery of our quilting. I would love to see what everyone does. I know I look forward to "Show and Tell" at my local quilt guild meeting to see what everyone else is doing, it keeps me inspired! Here's one of my favorites. I made it as an ode to the Rainbow Bridge. For those who don't know what that is: https://www.rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm.

    Happy Fourth of July!

    Happy Fourth Everyone! I hope this holiday is fun for everyone. I know that some holidays are not, this year I am going with a friend who has 2 kids to see the fireworks, something I haven't done in quite a few years. I do however, always put out my patriotic quilt, named Yankee Doodle because the red fabric has musical notes in it.
