    I’m alive and back lol. Moms doing a little better. At one point they said one to three days left to live but she bounced back. I’m kind of ok. Start a new bus depot Sunday and I have to learn six new bus lines. Gonna suck for like a week. But the change will be better and help me forget someone that caused me a lot of pain. I’ll let out details little by little lol. Have a nice day and see ya soon.

    Morning everyone. Well later today it’s off to work. Hours are going to work better. 4:30pm to 1:30am. So if I get home to sleep by 2 and I sleep to 8am then I’ll have like 7 hours a day at home before I go back to work. The last shift I was getting like 2 hours a day to myself. Have a good day and see ya later.

    Good morning! The job search has begun :( I really REALLY hate this process!

    Well that's good you'll have a more normal schedule with time for yourself. You'll have to add a few more shows to your lineup :giggle:

    Hey, Pami. I was just wondering how the Katanas were working out. They looked awesome!
    Have a great day, everyone!

    Good afternoon!

    Don't know, I haven't had a chance to play with them yet... I was too busy melting my resin firelord tank :( It came from somewhere else and was used, so I boiled it... guess I boiled it too long cause now it's all dull and rough feeling.

    Oh hell, that’s horrible! I’m sorry. Ive been afraid to use resin tanks, from when I started vaping again and saw an iJust 3 resin kit. I bought the glass one.
    I hope you can find a replacement or a matching tank, at the very least.
    Is the mod purple and silver? Because the Fire Luke Mesh comes in a stainless metal that’s nice looking.

    Good morning! Having a bit of a winter storm here. The ground is white... the air is white... boxes blown off of my porch.

    Then there's this... 63° in January... WHAT?!?!?!? :eek:

    Yikes! I want to know if you hit that temp and why. That's a mighty big jump!
    Hey, is your Firelord warped from the boil? Clear nail polish? Or have hubby put it on the buffer?
    I'm looking at my purple Baby Beast and that would match and fit. Do you clean all of your tanks by a stove sauna?
    (what's the Alt combo for the degree sign?)

    Good morning! Hey, Mother Nature... What did you do with my January?!?!?!

    Screenshot_20200110-101040_Facebook.jpg

    Not really warped... just the resin is all cloudy and rough now. Hubby, buffer? Ha! I don't have one of those handy hubby's like yours! ;)
    I have a purple Baby Beast but the mod is on the bluer side of purple and that tank is more plum.
    No, I actually never boil anything. I only did this cause it came to me used and the resin cap had separated from the metal tank. So I was boiling it to clean off the residue before I re-glued it. :huh:

    The hottest I got was boiling water and let it sit for 5 minutes before I put it in the jewelry cleaner. The worse thing it did was peel off the paint on my Cleito colored glass replacements. I'm so sorry about your tank. The more I look at my purple against your mod photo, the more I see the difference. But, if you need purple to match your outfit, it's better than nothing I guess. I hope you can find a replacement tank. Geeez.

    Hi y'all. Hope everyone is well. Nutcracker ended and I'm not working the opera. Have 4 days off with a midnight load out Sunday night. Go back to work on Tuesday. Opera work schedule isn't as grueling as Nutcracker.

    Really good! Other than the occasional terrible two tantrums. No longer sick too! Toby and I played outside since it’s 60 degrees here! Felt so good to get out!

    I bet it did. I think y'all were warmer than we were. Glad to hear you've gotten over the sickness. It's strange how you can miss the terrible twos. When they get to be teens the tantrums get to be much worse.

    I’m not ready for teens yet. I want my babies to stay the same age forever, minus the tantrums. My oldest is only 8, but atleast he still lets me steal kisses and cuddles

    Good morning! Been a busy weekend, Hubby is home and sick so had to go to Doc's yesterday. Now fighting with the pharmacy for the scripts cuz his insurance changed our prescription carrier. Now I'm coughing and sore throat :gaah: I keep hoping if I just vape more it'll kill whatever is trying to set in... lol The bizarre warm weather we had this past week hasn't helped.

    On top of all that, we got something electrical going on in our house. Our power keeps dipping (You know, like when something that uses a lot of electric first kicks on?) And one of our florescent lights isn't working now. Guess I'll have to call an electrician. :(

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    Aww Geez. You haven't caught a break so far this month. The worse carrier other than human contact is handling money. Chock full of germs. If I get a bug of any kind, because of my COPD, it turns into pneumonia with bronchitis and a 104 temp. Last time I was sick was Christmas 2015. 9 weeks in January & February had me breathing Albutarol and using a nebulizer ea. 4 hrs. That's when I started vaping! Chuck came home with 3 different kits with menthol on his own accord. I owe vaping all to him. I liked one kit with 2.4ml disposable cartomizer at 24mg that actually worked for me. FinCigs.com I hardly had a cig. I'd still have a smoke with my morning coffee. I hope you find a reliable, inexpensive electrician!

    My wife worked as a bank teller for 16 years and I guess she got lucky as she rarely gets sick.

    Unfortunately I have not completely kicked the nasty habit either, but I have a whole lot less then I used to. For some reason I can't vape first thing in the morning.

    Have you tried tobacco flavored eliquid? I was lucky enough to stumble upon Om Vapors "Reality". Reality not only taste like tobacco, but it has WTA in it to enhance the flavor and calm you like a smoke does. It contains alkaloids right from tobacco. Anyway, I'll get some in 18mg to give me that bump when I need it and buy 12mg to have as an ADV. They also have 100% VG WTA to mix with your other flavors.

    Oh no, @Countrypami ! Are you running a fever? As odd as this sounds, when I was super bad I went to the hospital all bundled up with 3 sweatshirts, a beanie and a hoodie. They told me not to bundle up when you have a fever. WHAT??? They said bundling makes the fever higher and last longer. I kept bundling up because I was freezing without it and I usually break the fever when I sweat it out. I hope you found some mint eliquid.

    Good morning. Doing a little better today, got some antibiotics from the Doc yesterday. Yes, I've been running a fever off and on. I think I caught it just in time to stop it from settling in my chest. But I've got all kinds of congestion in my throat and upper windpipe.

    I always bundle up too with a fever. When I sweat it out, I feel better.


    Glad to hear you’re doing better today! I hope the antibiotics kick it’s butt quickly for you!

    How high is your fever?

    Sounds like you did catch it mid stream but you are still contagious with a chock full of phlegm. When the phlegm gets hard, coughing so much may bruise or crack my rib. I also find it's hard to breathe if the hard phlegm gets stuck in my esophagus. When I can't breathe, even when coughing is really, really scary.
    While thinking of the flu and congestion, I hope I don't catch it from you here. :zombie: :giggle:

    Good morning. Fever is low grade, on/off... but I can tell the antibiotics have kicked in. My throat isn't as sore and the congestion is beginning to break up.

    So I called the electric company around 5pm last night to come check our outside connections. I figured I'd get put on a schedule for today during the daylight. Much to my surprise, at 6:30pm there was a tech knocking on my door! :eek: He did some stuff and said he thought he knew what the problem was, definitely outside, and he would be back with a crew later. He didn't say how much later... at 11:30pm this army of Electric company trucks shows up. High beam super bright lights everywhere! They completely replaced all connections from my house out to the road, now mind you... this is a 250' drop. They left around 12:30am, so far power has not surged. But one of their trucks did slide off the driveway and left a pretty good rut in the yard. They're supposed to be sending someone back to fix that.

    Cute!

    I'm so glad you're feeling better!

    And OMG! What an ordeal with the electric! And they did it so late... Like Holy S**t!!! I've never heard of an electric company, or any company for that matter, doing what they did. I can see if it were an emergency, but WOW! Does your homeowners policy take care of the cost? That would be a hefty bill in my book. Well, I'm so glad you had everything done on the outside. That was amazing.

    Good afternoon!

    Well, so far so good on the electric.. I'm pretty sure they fixed the issue.

    Yeah, I was shocked when they showed up that late at night too... and it was snowing at the time! Our electric company is responsible for anything outside. We only have to pay if the issue is inside the house. Don't know about the homeowners, never had to ask.

    I totally spaced that the outside is the electric company. Thank goodness! I still can't believe what happened.

    Since I'm still dealing with my insurance company after 15 months, I thought it best to read our policy. There's some pretty interesting stuff in there about what they will and won't cover AND how to submit information for them to release money you never think they'd pay. In all honesty, it's a good read but a bi*ch to read.

    Good morning!

    So I've still got a bit of congestion and low grade fever, but it is getting better.

    @Staten Island Dom you've been to quiet! Hope things are looking up for you! <3

    Dom's been going through a hard time. Things may be going on with his mother. I hope all is settling @Staten Island Dom

    I've been listing all of the shoes I bought on a binge at OfferUp today. Lots of transferring pics since you can only post from your phone and cut and paste. Speaking of today, this is the happiest and healthiest day I've had in like forever. I came off one of my main meds and I feel great! Think I'll have an ice cream and recline for a bit.

    Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! :)
