Well, we sorta got our gift zealie page to work about half the time. *hmph* First, one must right click and hold it till all the things on the page are blue. THEN, yous have to go to the bottom of the page and place the cursor in exACTly the correct item and click on your gift. Sometimes it doesn't work. We have contacted HQ, but it seems they have been on a month long vacation, no doubt sunning it up in Aruba. In other gnus,We have 5 (five!) homeless friends staying with us, two of 'em part time. They are all in dire circumstances and have all been friends of ours from days past---one of them, a dear friend of Mommi's is dying of liver disease. The friend asked Mommi here awhile back, "Donna, what am I going to do? Where will I go?" Mommi said, "I will take care of you. And we will get Hospice services to come in, too." It is almost more than Mommi can bear. She took care of a friend years ago with the same terminal disease and it never leaves you.....anyway, we must stop writing about this, but Mommi needed to vent to her good friends here.
In more news, we got SNOW! The doggies (one is our friend's homeless doggie) will NOT set foot in the snow to potty. The little boogers hide. At least they have the thoughtfulness to potty on the linoleum and not the carpet.
It has been a joyous and meaningful holiday for us all. Our homeless friends go to the charity food banks to get food to help with the five people we have; of course, Mommi and Ro pay our own bills and by our own groceries, some of which we of course share .
Now,-----have yous all made new years resolutions? Mommi already messed hers up; it was to lose twenty pounds, although everyone says she is not fat. Once, when Mommi was slender, a doctor asked her, "Are you anorexic?" Hmph, there'd be no danger of that now! Yesterday I spied her eating Reese's butter cups and Ferreros Roches!
Anyways, she must now make up a new New Year's resolution---she wants to do her belly dance tapes (she was a belly dancer in her youth),
but it is difficult with folks hanging about all over the house. I guess she could practice them in her room, but it is filled with shoes. That's right, shoes. She dug out all the shoes from under the bed (!) and in the closet and she owns roughly 10,000 pairs. She says she is going to get rid of half of 'em. Mm-hmm. Like she was going to get rid of half of her clothing too (she has a closet filled with nothing but her black clothes, and a dresser filled with nothing but her silk clothes). I have seen her donate to charity approximately one clothing article per month.
Well, I will clothes for now. (ar ar ar!)
