Hurricane Journal

By: mermaidlaw , 9:12 PM GMT on June 01, 2009

Hello {{{EVERYONE}}}!

This year my grandkids and I have decided to keep a journal during the hurricane season. We will be writting our thoughts and feelings as each storm forms. The grandkids will also draw pictures in the journal. At the end of the season, it may be interesting to read the thoughts of a grandmother and her grandkids during these storms. So, we will sell or auction the journal at the end of the season. The grandkids think we may even get ten dollars for it!:)
What ever money we make will be donated to PORTLIGHT!

I hope that everyone is prepared, and has a PLAN! Stay safe everyone! And please remember to help someone else prepare, if you are able. Their are many people in need this year.


I WUVS YOU ALL!

GOD BLESS!

Mer, I know how tough this decision is. Our animals only give good things to us and when it comes their time to cross the Rainbow Bridge we have to help them. When pain and frailty become to great they need our good judgement. You will make the right decision. My heart goes out to you and I will keep you in my prayers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog with birthday wishes. You are a special friend.

ohhh Mermaid -- how sad your heart must feel right now.... in my horsey world people I work for or friends are faced with this decision.....with many horses around me -- there are many old souls. We often feel that when a geriatric critter stops taking in nourishment they are telling us they are ready to rest.... for they have in their way made the decision... it's always a hard moment ... but trust your inner voice most importantly - you will know. I send you hugs and a special prayer.....

I just posted the following on my blog, I thought that I would also bring it to your blog.

Mermaid, my heart goes out to you and to your dog. I am going to admit it, I am crying. I feel so sad for your situation and the decisions that you have to make. It is your decision and I am sure that you will base it on wether the dog is suffering or not. I will pray with you and for you. If or when you decide to put her down, remember that many of us are holding you close to us and our heart. You are not alone. Hugs and understanding.

Thinking about you and hoping that all is well.
My Koko is not well and cannot get up and down the stairs. I have been trying to carry her downstairs so that she can take care of her needs, and she needs to eat as well. BUT she will not let me carry her. Yesterday I had an art class but decided to stay home so that I could keep her company.
Take care

I hope that your August month is a healthy and happy one. Sorry that I have not been around. I had house-guests and a family get-together. My guests have left and I am sitting back and reconnecting with my blog friends. Take care.

Good morning Mermaid,

I appreciate your posts on my blog this week. I know you are a very busy woman with a wonderful big family to look over and have fun with so we understand when you cannot be around much.

Hope you and your tribe are having a wonderful weekend!!!

I was reading you comments about grandchildren in Gams blog. I am a teen, and when I read your comment, I gave myself a chuckle. Whenever I have a problem, I tell my grandmother first. She is the only one that actually listens to everything I say. :) Grandparents rock!

Quoting Proserpina:
Mermaid,
I see something majestic in horses, they are beautiful and exude power. I never rode horses by myself but I did ride with my beloved grandpa when I was a very young child. I can still feel the wind rustling my hair and grandpa's warmth as I held on to him with all of my strength. :)


beautiful moment Pros.....

Hi, Koko is about the same. She is eating very well and is mildly active. She needs to be groomed and has an appointment for Tuesday. Actually the groomer comes to the house since K does not like to ride in my car, and she gets terrified if I leave her somewhere. So she gets to stay at home and I can make sure that the groomer does not administer her tranquillizers.
So, is pops holding his own?

{{{{{PROS}}}}}! Enjoy your picnic tommorrow. I hope you don't get thunderstorms. A nice rain is always good. Glad you can move inside if needed! I agree with you, horses are majestic. And memories of riding one with Grandpa have got to be awesome! How is Koko?

Mermaid, glad that you got the rain. Here it is overcast and the sky looks ominous. We do need some rain and it will probably come via a bad thunderstorm. Tomorrow we are supposed to go to a picnic and of course they are forecasting thunderstorms. Fortunately the group can move the picnic inside.

Good afternoon everyone!

Thanks for stopping by {{{gamma, and surfmom}}}!

When I was a young girl I lived close to a stable. On weekends I would go down and ride on an old horse named big red. I loved that horse so much. Somehow we had a special bond. Those are some wonderful memories I have. I love horses!

I really didn't think it would rain here today, but it did. I was so happy to see it, as it cooled my house down nicely.

I hope you {{all}} have a wonderful weekend!

Wuvs ya!

GOD BLESS!

{{{PROS}}} my little old dog made it! She is eating again! She probably wont be with me for a long time, yet atleast she is not suffering right now.

Pops is hanging in there for now. He is the greastest man on earth to me!!! The poor guy had to endure 7 women in the house for years!:) I don't know how he has done it. Yet he loves our 6 daughters, and even loves me! LOL!:) We are so blessed!

Our 17 grandbabies are growing up way too fast. They are precious beyond words.

Our oldest daughter Krissy is sick, yet she is a fighter, and through Prayer she is coming along pretty well.

Have a wonderful night!

MERMAID! Good to see you tonight. How is pops? The doggie? etc?
I just got back inside from watering my garden. I was about to take a walk when I noticed that my flowers are all drooping from lack of rain. So I did as much watering as this old body could take, the bugs were eating me up alive. I guess we need some rain around here. At least it is not too hot.
Take care.

I hope that all is well, thinking of you.

I took my little dog to the Vet's yesterday and her problems are increasing. In addition to the Cushings, her liver is enlarged (perhaps because of the Cushings Disease). So I have to administer an additional medication to her. Poor thing, she takes so many. The good thing is that for the most part she seems to be all right, at least pain free. So we keep our eyes on our little pets and hope that all goes well for them.

A Must See Program!

I watched a program on The History Channel on Tue. June 23, 2009. The name of the program is "The Crumbling of America". This is the summary of what the program is about:

Investigating infrastructure deterioration in the United States, including more than 70,000 bridges rated as being structurally deficient; past disasters; new technologies and designs to prevent problems in the future.

The next showing of this program is Sun. June 28, 2009 from 04:00pm - 06:00pm. I highly recommend that everyone see this program. After watching it myself, I began to realize that there are more problems going on in this country than I was aware of.

{{{{GAMMA}}}} Thank you sweet lady! We are watching her very closely, but it doesn't look good right now. I will never give up my faith and hope! She has truely been a loyal and faithful baby to us!

Pops is not doing so well either. I just have this fear of losing them both, close together. Maybe they are meant to stay together, I don't know. I just know that my heart is full, and I will keep my faith!

I am sorry for the whin, I don't usually do this yet I am human, and I guess it is my turn.

My next door neighbor has called me 6 times today, to check on things. She is almost 80 years old. I think that is a blessing too!

WUVS YOU ALL!

GOD BLESS!

I saw your post in my blog.. My heart is crying over your little dog being sick and getting old. I know how you must be feeling; we dread the day Harley has to prepare for his "little trip to rainbow bridge"...I get tears in my eyes just thinking about it.

Just hold him and love him is all you can do.

I know your home is sad this weekend.
