ICK ALERT

I'm serious, this is really icky, and it really bugs the stuffing out of me.  I can't tell you how many times I've sat on an automatic flushing toilet only to have it flush while I was sitting, splashing toilet bowl water all over my underside.

I KNOW what has been in that toilet bowl.  I KNOW that germs have GOT to exist even after the flush.  And therefore I KNOW that icky stuff is splashing all over my underside every time one of those automatic flushing toilets flushes prematurely.

With the price of gas orbiting the sun these days I don't drive home for lunch which means that I am at my work place for 9+ hours.  I cannot hold my bladder for 9+ hours, its just not possible.  I am going to petition my work place for at least one stall with a manually operated toilet.  I don't have high hopes in positive results but at least I'll know I tried.  And if my 'woohoowhatzit' falls off from gross contamination due to back splash from automatic flushing toilets, well, I think we will have grounds for a law suit of some sort.  (Enter exibit A)

Gabe flies out of Iraq in 6 days.  I can't tell you how stressed out I have been lately.  I'm a positive person.  I'm so positive that I pee happy thoughts (which is a good thing since my toilet at work splashes those happy thought right back at me!)  But lately I've had such bad thoughts that I can't even put them to words.  I don't dream.  I don't dare.  I talk so fast that people can't understand me, which is good because if they can't understand me then they can't ask questions. 

Right?

Please, no questions!

I just want my son home safe in my arms and sight, next to his fiancee and son... right where he belongs.

Dear God, please give me the strength to let him go back to his unit when the time comes.  Give me the strength to understand that they need him there more than I do.  Dear God give me the strength to let him go.

80 degrees today.  No snow, no ice.  No cold. 

Grrrr..... its too hot in here.  Why does it have to be so extreme here in Colorado?  Its either freezing cold or blistering hot.

Ah well, no matter.  I love it here.

6 more days and a wake up!

Oh, (((Dorn))), may the days go swiftly until he's at home and then time should slow down. My nephew just is into basic, when he finishes we don't know where he will wind up...it is hard.  Try to relax dear...love, Sandi

I know what you mean about ick.  I visited a toilet that flushed when you sat down, if you moved to the left or right, and then again when you got up.  And I had to use it several times!  ICK!

I've sat on some of those automatic flushing toilets and got my underside sprayed too.  It is gross and one can only imagine what germs they hold!

I'm praying for Gabe that he makes it home safely!!

My prayers are with Gabe during his time of travel until he arrives home (well after that also - you know what I mean)....

My prayers for you that these days will pass with ease..
