Swan: Hannah - My Cali had traveled all over the country with us, she was actually my husband's cat, but the other woman doesn't like cats so when they moved in together, he asked me if I would keep the cat. He rescued her, she was available at a event the humane society had at a local mall. I still cannot believe he was willing to give up his cat, but she lived with me another six years before she passed. I remember when I first brought her to my son's house, she walked around meowing looking for my husband. She then took to our son, but he isn't a cat person, not a dog person either. But he would allow her to sit on his lap because he knew she was sad having been thrown away by my husband.

Hannah: Swan it is unbelievable what they will do to please ow. So sad. Sore topic for me too.

Hannah: Welcome this evening. Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, keeping his covenant of love to those who love him. Deuteronomy 7:9

Swan: Hi Hannah - how are you this week?

Hannah: Hi swan, I am doing ok thanks, how about you?

Swan: Hannah - Doing good, but I have a cold, I guess. I don't feel sick, my throat isn't sore, but my sinus' are messing with me and my voice is horse. Which has made work interesting since I have to talk a lot.

Hannah: Swan take care. One of my cats has a sinus infection and congestion. Nose bleeding too. In all the years I have had cats never had a cat with nose bleeds.

Swan: Hannah - A nice verse to remind us that God is God and not just a wish genie. I know people that send their wants up in prayer and when the requests are not answered exactly as they want immediately they start saying maybe there isn't really a God.

Swan: Hannah - When we lived here in Southern California the first time, our cat got nose bleeds, I took her to the vet and he said it was from the dry winds and allergies. We got a humidifier for the house and kept the windows closed during rag weed season, plus she was given drops, it made a world of difference for her.

Hannah: Swan she has anti bio-tics right now, she is 15 years old and earlier this year we had to have her mom put to sleep with kidney failure. She still has a zest for life and wants to eat and roams around the yard.

Swan: Hannah - My Cali had traveled all over the country with us, she was actually my husband's cat, but the other woman doesn't like cats so when they moved in together, he asked me if I would keep the cat. He rescued her, she was available at a event the humane society had at a local mall. I still cannot believe he was willing to give up his cat, but she lived with me another six years before she passed. I remember when I first brought her to my son's house, she walked around meowing looking for my husband. She then took to our son, but he isn't a cat person, not a dog person either. But he would allow her to sit on his lap because he knew she was sad having been thrown away by my husband.

Swan: Hannah - When my husband just showed up one day at my son's house, he asked about Cali and my son says when he told him she had passed just a few months earlier, my husband got all teary and upset. I am sorry but I didn't feel much empathy for him because if he cared that much he would have been the one with her when she quietly slipped away. Even my son said he asked, if you cared that much why did you leave her with mom? He said my husband looked down and said, because it was the better place for Cali. Really! Maybe if he hadn't abandoned his wife and cat for another woman! Ok, this is still a sore topic for me I guess.

Hannah: Swan it is unbelievable what they will do to please ow. So sad. Sore topic for me too.

Swan: Hannah - my grandson is driving now, he got his license last week and has been going off on his own, takes himself to and from school, water polo, youth group, etc. I can see that he is 6'2" tall, looks very much like a young man, but in my heart he is still that cute little big eyed guy.

Swan: Hannah - Oh and he has a girlfriend!

Swan: Hannah - It hurts that he threw me away, but to be honest it down right pissed me off when he threw Cali away. And then to hear how much they fight, how he tells everyone he is miserable every moment of every day, it just makes me angrier he did that. But she had a good long life and warmed up to me and showed me love. When my husband was around, she had no use for me other than to feed her and keep the box clean.

Hannah: Swan some things never change LOL Does his wife know?

Swan: Hannah - No not that my husband has a girlfriend, my grandson has a girlfriend.

Hannah: Swan I know h could hurt me as much as he wanted but when he hurt the ones I love then I got angry. Oh I thought you meant husband LOL

Hannah: Swan my grandson had a girlfriend for a couple of weeks then she dumped him saying he was too immature! In fact she is the one who is immature, he is so adult in his thinking at only 12 years old.

Swan: Hannah - I don't really know if my husband has a girlfriend or not, I don't really know much about him anymore other than the bits and pieces I hear from time to time from the kids or mutual friends.

Hannah: Swan prior to my h retiring he was being very nice to me when we saw each other at my sons or my grandsons hockey games but since he has told me he won’t be paying any more alimony he has gone back to ignoring me and not being friendly. I know he goes a lot of places by himself, he is retired but ow is 8 years younger than him and is still working full time

Swan: Hannah - this young lady is my grandson's second girlfriend, the last one broke up with him after only a few weeks and it really hurt him. This little girl seems a better fit for now, but as we know they are young and will have many girl/boy friend’s before they settle into marriage. My grandson is pretty mature for sixteen, he is an only child and even though his parents and grandparents spoil him, there are also boundaries and he has responsibilities that helps with growth. He is also in advanced placement classes at school and that requires a lot of focus.

Hannah: Swan that is great.

Swan: Hannah - The day my husband showed up here, he was alone, but even when I walked past him (didn't know they were in the garage), he didn't even skip a beat in what he was saying, didn't look at me or acknowledge me. So I just went through did what I needed to do and went back into my bedroom. The other woman has a zero contact rule for my husband in regards to me.

Hannah: swan so sad. Do you hear from Jenn at all? I see her posts on Facebook

Swan: Hannah - the other woman with my husband is something like 18 months older than him.

Hannah: Swan so are they both retired or still working?

Swan: Hannah - Just see her posts on facebook mostly, we email from time to time, but not much else. She is a pretty busy lady.

Hannah: Hi buttons, nice to see you. How is your little boy, I have been praying for him. Any better in class?

Swan: Hannah - my husband is still working and as I understand it the other woman stopped working when she packed her car and showed up at my husband's door one night while they were connecting. She hasn't held a job at all the entire time they have been married. The kids say she constantly has an excuse for why and my husband has just gotten tired of fighting with her about it. Supposedly he took her off his accounts (so she at least cannot spend him blind) and gives her an allowance.

Swan: Hi buttons

buttons: Hannah he is settling some. I FINALLY have what sounds like will be support for the whole year as in they are not planning on leaving. I also have another adult in the room to support another little guy until lunch. I have paired that person with my little guy from last year as HE is supposed to have had support all along and has had none because he was paired with the ASD boy who needed ALL the support/time.

buttons: hannah thank you for the prayers

buttons: Hi Swan how are you?

Swan: buttons - good, yourself?

Hannah: buttons glad things are working out for you.

buttons: swan tired, my brain started going at about 4:30 this morning and would not turn off so I got up at 5:45.

Swan: buttons - there must have been something in the air last night, I woke up around 2:30 am and could not get back to sleep, finally got up and started reading, was finally able to go back to sleep around 4:00 am, been kind of dragging all day, plan to head to bed early tonight.

Hannah: buttons what time is it there?

Hannah: I will be heading off to bed after chat, it is almost 10pm here

buttons: Ladies my little guy from last year (who is supposed to have 20 hours support) has pretty major hearing impairment (3% in one ear and something like 35% in other). He has hearing aids and the other day, after a 3 day weekend, his batteries were dead, he DID NOT hear the bell to come in first thing in the morning, his sisters were not around and his grandma had dropped them off earlier, anyway he was outside on his own for at least 5 minutes or more

buttons: hannah night, hugs and prayers, it's only SEVEN here!

Hannah: buttons your poor little guy. You know you can go to bed early buttons LOL

buttons: swan yes, there must be something in the air, the K classes all seemed off/odd today

Swan: buttons - poor little guy

Hannah: All I think I am going to bed, very tired. My chiropractor said this time of year and in the spring our body tells us we need extra sleep and we should take notice of our body! Just saying. Have a great week. Talk to you next week - Halloween.

buttons: hannah Oh, I'm pretty sure I will, just need another short walk with fur baby

Swan: Night Hannah

buttons: Hannah night, take care.

Swan: I am going to head out as well, I need to get dinner ready for the family.

buttons: swan yes, it was scary! He was shaken and I am still

buttons: swan night, hugs and prayers, take care
