I havent said anything on here since the announcement, because it has been a sad thought. However, now I cant leave without saying something.

Thank you so much, you all. I love you all and I hope to catch you on the flippity flip...the flippity flip...the flippity flip. 🏀
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 30 GALLERY! on: November 06, 2019 10:05:02 AM
I am behind on pics, but here are some highlights:

In NH, Daisy visited the Nansen Ski Jump. Built in 1936 it was the largest ski jump at the time, and it remained the largest on the East Coast for almost 50 years. In 1938 it held the first Olympic rials. Olympian Sarah Hendrickson went down it in 2017 in celebration of returning competitive ski jumping to it. (It has been restored after closing in 1988).

In the White Mountains, Daisy saw two moose!

Every year in the fall, the North Conway area (plus several other towns) have businesses that make displays out of pumpkins. There was a Dr. Seuss one at a restaurant with this cut-out.

Another display of "hikers" at a gift shop that is inside of a covered bridge.

There was a display in Eastern Slope Inn showing historical photos of the skimobile that was built in 1938. It carried skiers up the mountain and was removed in 1990.

Also displayed is a ski lift seat turned into a bench (this is common in North Conway. Even the local McDonald's has a gondola inside that you can sit in).

To the left of the pic above you can see a rock shop. We went inside and found a striking resemblance in a fossil! Smiley

Went to Crawford Notch in the White Mountain National Forest.

There was a display there. This lobster claw came from a 14lb lobster! (To put it into perspective, we usually eat 1-2lb lobsters)

Daisy fed some ducks at the pond there.

(Okay, that is a lot. I will hold off and show more another time)

Thank you all for your concern. I am okay, I promise! I have some med resistant days, but having all days be med resistant was just a bit much. However, I knew the source was my neck and shoulder this time around. Besides the muscles, my left side is collapsed, so there are structural issues that were just being extra rogue. Aalso, for the past week I have not been allowed to take any blood thinners as I was suppose to have surgery today for my bday to celebrate (long story short: I was getting my fallopian tubes removed, but got a bill in the mail from Sept over the weekend that showed an appointment was not covered. Turns out Anthem BCBS's app never registered my automatic payment and then they cut off my insurance in Sept. I had no idea until that bill came and I got suspicious. Thank goodness I canceled surgery and rescheduled for January in time!). I got two massages recently and they are working on getting rid of the guarding my muscles are doing around an injury from back when I was 8. Already I am feeling some improvement, so hopefully this will make things better for the long run.

AlishaMisha, PLEASE go to the doctor or the hospital!  It's not normal to have migraines for that long!  And even if it were, why should you have to suffer with one for that amount of time??!!

I'm in the same boat with the limited meds.  I'm extremely lucky in that I've found one that works for me.

I've went to the hospital and got a shot for pain when I had one I couldn't get rid of.  Perhaps you might want to try that?

I'm worried about you!
Sweet of you to look out for me. Thank you! If that is the same shot I am thinking of, I have not had success with that. Even IV stuff has only reduced them enough to not feel like vomiting. The shot feels like they just suddenly blew up a basketball in your leg, right? That one hurts!

Hi, I am just checking in. Still here, but been dealing with a migraine that has been over 16 days now. Today wasn't absolutely terrible with it though, but my body and mind are just very worn out and I am working on self-care. Anyways, I did have one day while I was gone that was not as terrible also, so I will come back and post some of those. Luckily I got to take a lot of pics that day to make up for the week. Migraines are very normal for me, but Rx not helping to any degree is not normal for me, so that is why I am am like "wth?!?!". Plus I only get 9 pills per month and take 2 at a time, so I can't take them all the time. But anyways, yes I am still around.

Well, I had two weddings and was in the ER all night between them, so I crashed and slept all day Monday. I realized Daisy was left in my parent's car when I woke, because I drove my grandfather home in his. So by that point my parents were already on their way to NH (which I believe we are all going again today, but this time I am going). So my mom took the liberty of taking Daisy sightseeing. Which was really good, because it is peak foliage and I have been home not well all week other than appointments anyways. Can't come all the way to New England and not see the foliage!

I am still at the wedding (first of two for the weekend), but I thought I would pop in to show a peak. Daisy is here as my date. They are matching my dress! Dashing! <3

Im so happy Daisy got there safe and sound! THE GIANT LOBSTER IS PERFECT!!!
Me too! The sending process is so nerve wracking sometimes! I am glad they seemed to have a very gentle trip! A cold arrival, but their fluff will thicken and get use to it as the temps drop more. Smiley

Yes!!! That lobster IS humongous!!! AlishaMisha, I'm pretty sure I did drive by that this summer, but I didn't  notice the crab in the front-only the lobster on the roof.

I don't have any question that you did. You would have had to go on some pretty strange routes on some backroads to avoid going past here/my house. If you look up this and my address, you will see just how close you were! Smiley

(For anyone not following from past convos, BigBangMomma and I met only after she drove by my house. We JUST missed each other and almost attended the Lobster Festival at the same time. We wouldn't have known, but it would have been cool. She had an LV with her (if you followed the last round). And I had an LV at the same even for the first LV round I ever did many years ago! And she doesn't even live anywhere near my state! So neat!

VERY you!!!!! I love it!

Btw, I wear the stamped bracelet you made for me every day. I even sleep in it! That means I both love it and also that I am a complete wreck (for anyone reading, it reads "time to drink water", because I forget to do anything basic).
