A quick hello

Hi to all,

I've been thinking about all of you every day and trying to get myself motivated to join the gang again. I don't know why but it seems much harder to really get excited about posting now. I remember all the happy days when I would sit for hours, first learning HTML and then working on my journals. I really did have some bad ones at the start, but they progressed. My last one, the Christmas snowmen, was one of my best and it was the one that I remember the most because it crashed and burned along with JS and the memories.

Anyway, not to bring all that up again, it's just been on my mind lately. I look at the HTML here and don't even want to bother with it. I do read your journals now and then and wish that I was back in the loop so maybe I'll start trying to accomplish that. If we only had the front page again, that's what I miss the most!

We're doing OK here, just trying to get by. I'm still struggling with my foot, it isn't well yet, and Molly had to have surgery yesterday so that was very traumatic. She's doing better today but the vet found that her liver has a problem from the pain meds so she had to stop them immediately. Poor baby just can't get a break. :(

Lady had a bad asthma/allergy attack the other day and we thought she would never start breathing again but she finally did. The vets have all said there's nothing we can do but it seems that something should help. I just wonder why they all seem to act like - it's just an animal, no biggie - they're our family! I think the whole world has gone crazy. Or maybe it's just me...

So I'm going to spend tomorrow just reading journals and trying to catch up with everyone. I do miss you and you're always in my thoughts and prayers.

Be back tomorrow, I promise!

Hugs to all,

Betty

you're back!! *happy dance!* I have missed you soooooooo much!

Yes, the homepage was something special. The site I've been pimping, KCL, has one and we can soon use our old JS templates there! IF you find time, maybe you should go check it out. Unfortunately, not enough of us are there yet.

Sorry about all the issues.... *sigh* When will they stop?

BIG huge {{{hugs}}} for you and Paul!

I agree with Dorrie. I am doing the snoppy dance because I miss you. Im sorry about your pets. I know how much you love those dogs. I understand about pets being family. I am just glad to see you posting again. (((hugs)))

We miss you so much sweetie, and you and Paul and animals are always in my prayers.

I have missed you SOOOOOO much, and I am SOOOOOO happy you wrote a little. :-)


I have to mirror what Dorrie said about KCL, I think you already have an account there though. It is a lot like the old JS, and gets closer as the days pass. :-)



I am so sorry about Molly. It is so hard to see our pets like that. :-( Glad to hear she is doing better.


Your foot still isn't feeling well? That stinks, I hope it feels better soon, it has been a while.


Hang in there sweetie, and I do hope you post more, I sure do miss ya and worry about you.


Love ya!!

I'm so glad to see that you're back. Please stop in more often. We've missed you so much.

Sorry to hear about the dogs. They are our children, aren't they? Hope they are both doing well now. Keep in touch. HUGS!

SO good to hear from you! I wondered where you had gone. So sorry to hear about your pups. They are in our hearts, never simply "dogs". Sharing my life with animals is such a part of me, it always suprises me when a person refers to them as just pets.
Hope ALL of you are feeling better! HUGS

Hi Betty,

Find another vet! Are there any vet med schools around there you can take Lady too that have advanced medicine to treat her asthma? I say that because I know of several people who took their pets to a very good vet school at Auburn University in Alabama back home in Pensacola, Florida. It may be more costly, but your babies are worth it aren't they? My Roxanne kitty wheezes a little bit, but fortunately she is not in any distress. Yet.

Please keep us updated. I know blogging can be a chore, I'm starting to fall back on my posting because there's so much else I want to do outside of the cyberworld. But I read everyone's blog just about everyday! ;)

Glad to see this post.

*hug*

Oh and Kashew, I tried to comment in your blog and couldn't do it. I see other comments so maybe I'm doing something wrong. :(

HI, Betty! I hope you all can catch a break soon. Your foot has been giving you issues for a long time now.

Best wishes for Molly and Lady.
*hugs* for you

I'm still worried about your foot, (((Betty))) I know it took 14 weeks for mine to heal, and that was with me seeing a foot Doc and getting it taken care of. Please know you are in my prayers, and think of you and Paul out there in TX, often. Love you, (((hugs)))

I'm glad to see you back, Betty! It's been a while. I was wondering about you and the pets. I hope that the medical issues with Molly and Lady can be resolved to the positive very soon. I hope that you are doing well, also.
