SRS: Thanks for not taking my last post in this thread personally (cuz it warn't meant so). It's one of the things I like best about you and your leadership in this thread.

All: GOGOGO!!! OUT OUT OUT!!!! Never EVER think that just because I do not reference your posts I am not reading them and sending encourgaement, cuz Ah usually IZ.



Food/fridge: We're in withdrawal mode from taking out the spare fridge, and the attic stairs are nice and cold and hard to get at, to wean ourselves. Especially useful for stuff to pre-cool before packing for the freezer. In the meantime the K fridge is getting more and more vegetarian-like as time goes by, and each week I add one new veg to the shoplist to put into practice all I'm learning from cooking programs (pls no advice on same).

Water: The friend's spring is on a road that is not open (we looked), and we will be out of potable water in 3 days. Exploring options. Water in any container from peeps coming to church, if they think theirs is safe, is welcome. We have enough fillable jugs loaded in the van to re-up our supply till balmy weather makes the friend's spring accessible. We are also exploring other Potter County options, off the frack map: AM I FRACKED UP?

Laundry: I was sick last week. It's clean. Next is fold and put. Uck. It's a tower of full hampers staring at me.

Blog: 5 or 6 posts left to hang up and crosslink.

Finance: This past month a friend taught me how to TAKE PayPal $$, whoo hoo! One of two books I ordered is here; a support system is in place; home energy svgs are long-solved; other economies planned; long story (no advice here needed).

Friends: A SAD friend has resurrected in time to plan a lunch next week, HOO rah!

SAD: I'se winnin' this year (barely), but OMG is it hard!

Personal: A skin issue that has been screamingly painful for several days is finally scabbed over. It's where I sit. Ydy I was actually able to wear trousers. Hopefully progress will continue.
