Hrmph -- mum was unable to get any pics to download.  I am gonna HAVE to insist that she go to Geek Squad.

We had a little bit of excitement (not!!) here the other morning.  I think we mentioned how our upstairs neighbor bangs on her floor (our ceiling) when I bark as mum is getting ready to take me out in the morning.  Well, on Tuesday morning, they banged so hard we thought the ceiling was going to come down.  Next thing we knew, as mum was opening the front door, there was yelling and screaming in the hallway.  It was our upstairs neighbors yelling and screaming at mum about my barking.  Now, you have to realize that these women must each weigh double what mum does, and she's no lightweight (sorry mum -- not) and it turns out they are the people who have the new truck that mum very nicely asked a couple of weeks ago to please be sure to leave her room to get the wheelchair through.  When they finished yelling a screaing and using HBO words at mum they slammed the door from the hallway so hard it could not be opened!!!!  Some other neighbors a couple of apartments down had heard the ruckus and come out and I went to talk to them.  Mum's and my knees were still shaking about it all!!!!  This couple also told us that they had been told that I attacked a lot of other dogs here.  Mum immediately knew who was spreading that rumor!!!  There is a woman here with a little dog that had lived in the complex mum and I lived in for a couple of months last year.  I had gotten out once and chased a few small dogs but did not injure anyone.  Every time we see this woman, if she has her dog she picks it up and walks in the opposite direction; if mum sees her when she does NOT have her dog, she STILL walks in the opposite direction!!!!!   Anyway, when the leasing office here opened, mum called and spoke to the manager.  He was extremely nice and said that he would look into it.  Fortunately, he did not make any disparaging comments about me!!!  Mum also heard from our next door neighbor that a LOT of other people (and not just from our hallway) had also heard these women yelling at mum and had contacted the office!!!!  This morning there was just a small banging on the ceiling when mum was getting ready to take me out.  Mum has threatened to put a muzzle on me when she is getting ready so that I wont bark.  I am not very happy about that!!!

Anyway, mum has been watching some programs about the Battle of Britain, etc., and I have gotten on her case (again) that she needs to write some of her memories of that time in the UK.  She said that he will tomorrow.

Mum has said that she does not really wanna do any more typing tonight so ......

I am not to sure if I will stay awake for long, so may have to pass this over!! to mum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mum here:  Okay Cookie, I will take pity on you, even though it I only 12"30 am -- and even though you hae been sleeping most of the day.  BTW, Cookie, thanks for letting me sleep later the last couple of mornings.  We only hae one problem in the mornings;  while I am getting my jacket and shoes on and getting the chair ready to go -- Cookie barks constantly.  (Cookie here:  that's just cos I am so glad you are getting up n=and taking me out!}  Unfortunately the people upstairs do not enjoy her "singing" and pound on the floor -- which, of course makes her bark more.!!!!!

I went to see the doctor on Friday and got a clean bill of health (thank goodness).  But because I like to run errands when I go to the doctor's office, it makes for a long day!!

I am going to have to go the Geek Squad to find out to post pictures, again

Well, this was a quickie update to let everyone up on what we are doing

This is just gonna be a quickie cost mum just wanted to remember how to post!!!!!!

Mum and I really want to thank Amber and Max da udder wienie's mum for helping my mum to FINALLY figure out how to get back to posting.  I am sure everyone thought that we had gone missing -- but for some reason mum could not get to this screen!!!!!

Things have not been toooo  great lately.  One nice thing is that I now have ANOTHER kitty sister -- Sapphire.  She looks like a Russian Blue.  She need to be spayed (as does Luna) and so the two of them walk around yowling!!!!

Also mum has been sick a couple of weeks ago.  She had to have another Botox injection in her bladder and then about a week later she started a really bad UTI.  Unfortunately she forgot that about 20 odd years ago she had a bad reaction to sulfa drugs, and they gave her an antibiotic with Sulfa!!!  Fortunately she final did remember and told the doc's office so the stopped her taking it and now she is feeling better.

I still have a bit of a limp because of my valley fever tumor in my leg, but it is not too bad.  It is still too hot for mum to take me too far during the day, but it is nice and cool when she takes me out in the mornings. 

Well, I do not want to go on whingeing so I will end now and hopefully will be able to get some pics up here next time, which should not be too long from now.

Mum has been feeling kinda stressed lately and although I have gotten her to read all the other posts, I have not been able to get her to sit and write in my blog instead of watching TV.  A lot of the stress has been because she overdrew her bank account AGAIN!!!!!  She went to the bank the other day and got them to remove some of the overdraft fees -- She  had been charged $34 for a charge of $10 and another for a charge of $15!!!!!   I was not with her (too hot for my poor little paws!!) but she dealt with the bank manager and she said that he was really nice an understanding.  She still does not have any money til the 3rd of next month, but it will help that she doesn't have such an overdraft.  She said she was s'posed to go over to Uncle Vic's yesterday -- again she said it would be too hot to take me!!!!  But she ended up not going because he called and said he had bedbugs again!!!!!  Mum did not want to chance picking up any again -- she said after all the problems she had getting rid of them (the most pressing of her stressors) she did not want to chance getting them again.  Needless to say, he was not very happy about it (she was going over cos the tech from the wheelchair place was coming over to see what was wrong twith her old wheelchair that Uncle Vic wanted to use). 

We are in the middle of our monsoon season here in  Tucson, so I have been spending a lot of time in the bathtub and closet!!!!When I am hiding in the bathtub and mum comes in to use the bathroom, I get lots of scritches!!!!  Yesterday I made a couple of poops and a pee in the living room cos we had a really bad storm!!!  Our patio got flooded the rain was so heavy!!!

Mum asked me to remind my buddies that our GoFundMe page is still active (she hopes) cos, as I have mentioned on other occasions) we are in need of money for my med and vet visits.  Also, my kitty sista Luna needs to get fixed!!!!  she seems to go into heat very often and makes the most awful noises when she does.

Well, nothing exciting has been going on here except for the storms!!!  As I said, the time that mum does go out, it has been too hot for me (except when I go out to do my bidness early in the morning).  so I guess we will end now.  I will try to get mum to post more often, and also go figure out how to post pics again

Temps here getting around 114F and sposed to go even higher!!!!  Mum takes me out before it gets too hot then I stay in air conditioned apartment for the rest of the day!!  But when I do go to the doggy park we have here, I find los of good pee mails.

BTW, it has come to our attention that word has gone around that mum goes for coffee and a muffin almost every day.  That has not happened for several years -- since mum took Cody (who has been at the rainbow bridge for almost 3 yrs now), Rajah and Sandra asnd her pup out for coffee after going to Udall Park.  Human brother and wife sent mum an e-card for Starbucks for her birthday, but we have no Starbucks close by so she does not go there very often!!!  She makes coffee at home and when she goes out during the day because it is so hat she takes flavored water with her!!!!  So, if you have not been donating to my GoFundMe page cos you think she has money to spare, I want to assure you that she doesn't because of all the moves, etc. and being in hospital fo so long!!  She has not been able to take me o the vet, even tho I am limping from my Valley Fever, cos of lack of money; also, Luna needs to be spayed cos she keeps going into heat, but, again cos of lack of money, she cannot afford it!!

Mum has to go to have some minor surgery on her eyelid tomorrow -- our neighbor Jessie is going with her.  Wish her luck

Mum wanted us to shout out to any pups who go to Udall Park in Tucson.  Some of you may remember that that is where mum met Jack and Tall Guy and she used to take Cody there all the time, but me not as much cos when I came along, her apartment complex had a nice doggy park where she used to take me.  Anyway, this mornings newspaper had a biiiiig article about the fact that there has been an outbreak of lepti (whatever it is called, but it is VERY contagious for dogs and human) there and recommending not going there.  Usually when they have a contagious outbreak they will close the park and fumigate it.  But for any Tucson pupsters whose humans have not read the article, PLEASE stay away from Udall Park.  We do not go there since moving to this apartment, and I like my new doggy park -- I have found lots of pee mails there.  I just hope that this disease does not move here.

I keep telling mum she has to post more often!!!!  I will admit tho that she has been enduring lots and lots of stress (which is her excuse for not posting).  Finally, the apartment has been cleaned up.  She had to borrow our next door neighbor's vacuum cleaner 'cos ours went missing somewhere between moves to and from storage; so did the shelves and glass doors from our china cabinet.  Mum also realized that a plastic bag that had some large items (comforters and terry cloth robes, etc) musta been put in the new storage cabinet.  One of the people that put the stuff in storage in December wants to come over on Wednesday to look in our new storage.  Mum doesn't want her to go on her own, and the temp is gonna be in the 100's this week, so she is gonna cancel (mum, that is).

By the way -- we forgot to tell you in the last post -- we have a new kitty, Luna.  Uncle Vic found her for us.  She is really cute, but has not been fixed and last week she was in heat.  She made the most atrocious sounds all the time.  It took mum a couple of days to realize what it was!!!!  Before she went into heat she used to hide and only come out occasionally.  Now, she has been coming out much more often.  Actually, she has been kinda funny because she keeps sticking her tush into my face!!!!  Now that she is no longer in heat, she is not doing it as much!!!  She and Tigger are getting more friendly, too.  As soon as mum figures out (again!!) how to post a picture here, she will send one of Luna.

Mum is going to the Balance Clinic tomorrow.  They were sposed to call her to set up the appointments, but never did.  Mum was gonna let it go cos she was feeling much better but then had a mild dizzy spell last week, so decided she better go!!!

Otherwise, not much has been happening.  Mum and I are really glad that the apartment is pretty much organized -- just a few things need to be done, but mum did a little bit yesterday and now she is hurting, so she has to wait for that to pass before doing any more.

I really should be going to the vet, but mum cannot afford it -- so if anyone wants to donate to my GoFundMe, it would be really appreciated.

Well, I will keep on mum's 'tail' so that she doesn't go so long without posting again!!!

I have been trying to get mum to the PC to update my blog but she has excuses, excuses, excuses!!  Hope I can remember all the news.  Mum had her surgery on April 4 and although she says it was much more painful than she expected, the doc said it went very well.  Some of the pain meds they gave her made her quite loopy and confused -- in fact, someone from the clinic at the hospital called her this morning and said she had med mum at the hospital!!!!!!!  mum doesn't remember her AT ALL!!!!  Also, Uncle Vic came to visit and she was so out of it he got quite concerned and called the doctor, who clarified that I would be ok!!!  I was staying with Jennifer at this point and she brought me to see mum at the hospital.  I was extremely glad to see she was ok and let her know with wet nose kisses.

Mum was at the hospital for a week then went back to the rehab center for another week and then finally came home.  Jennifer brought me home the following day.  Although Jen promised to come over to help finish with the unpacking, etc. she never showed up (she was sposed to come today but has not shown up!!!!!)  Also, she cleared out part of the living room, but had put all the stuff from there in the bedroom so that in order to get to the bed and bathroom, mum had to climb over stuff.  Even hanging on to furniture she still lost her balance a couple of times!!!!!!!

She finally got hold of someone to helpg her out, but it is costing an awful lot (which she cannot really afford).  She just reminded me that my GoFundMe page should still be up, so if anyone wants to contribute towards her and my expenses ....... (we still have major med for my Valley Fever).

Mum is recuperating quite well.  She went to see the surgeon the other day and he was really pleased that mum lost over 20 lbs since the surgery.  The surgeon and mum joke that if anything can go wrong during a procedure, it will happen to me.  Fortunately, this time nothing was other than he expected.  He is all the way over the other side of Tucson, but at this time, he is the only surgeon for that type of stuff that mum will trust!!!!!

We are still trying to catch up with all the blogs, but it is taking time!!!!  Mum's hands are bothering her too so she does not want to do too much typing (which, she says is the reason it has taken so long to catch up here).

So, without any further ado, we will close now

I barked this message to mum to type.

Cookie's mum here:

I finally got my laptop this afternoon so will do a quick post to catch you all up.  Unfortunately a couple of days after my last post, I had some very bad dizzy spells and ended up in the hospital on 3/22.  Then last Wenesday I was transferred to a rehab center.  Tomorrow early I am being transferred to a DIFFERENT hospital to have some surgery that had been scheduled a couple of weeks ago!!!!  I will be at that hospital for 4 or 5 days then back here for a few more days cos my doctor does not want be to be alone!!!!  Poor Cookie has been alone, but except for the first day I was gone when she was unable to go out, my neighbor has  been taking her out.  This has all been very upsetting for all of us.  I will try to do a longer post in a few days.

Well the Geek Squad guy cam today, so let's hope it all works!!!!!!!  I think I may have to go down to best Buy anyway cos there are a couple of things I still need done, but I don't want to have to pay any more.  Can you believe mum bought the new desktop in SEPTEMBER and only just got around to getting it installed, etc.!!!!!!  Mum had to move a few things so that he could get to the new pc and the desk, so she was really hurting.  Also, the a/c was not working properly.  The office here was closed, but she saw one of the maintenance guys, and he came over.  Turned out it was a problem with the fuse box!!!!!  He fixed it so now mum is comfy and cool.  She was having a terrible time breathing etc., with it not working properly.  Mum also got him to put some of the stuff she had on the bed moved so she can get into the bed!!!!!!  Jennifer has not been over to help mum out, and if she doesn't come in a day or two mum says she will put a notice on Craigslist!!!!  It is so annoying when people say they will do something and then they don't!!!  Mum still cannot make outgoing calls, so she is going to take me over to Uncle Vics in the morning and use his phone!!!

Well, so far so good -- windows10 has not eaten the post SO FAR!!!!  We will keep going and see what happens!!!  Actually, there are a few more things mum wants to write about, but says she doesn't want to push her luck (whatever that means, bol)

I know we sound like a broken record here, but windows 10 is driving me and mum batty!!!! It keeps eating whatever mum inputs for my blog so she has to reinput then it shows up!!

This was kinda rough week. Mum had a procedure done on Wednesday that was supposed to be "minor"; however, the nurses had problems getting the IV in and finally had to call the anesthesiologist -- who also had a problem with it, but did finally get it in. Incidentally while he and mum were chatting she said he asked her about her open heart surgery (done in 1961) and was amazed at how long mum was in the hospital and convalescent, etc. He said that now when someone has it they are home within a day or 2. Anyway, when mum came round after the procedure she was kinda hurting

The cable guy came this morning to hook up telly and intermutts. Well mum is having problems getting the one telly to work properly plus she is not getting the cable channels she is sposed to get!!! It is better than nothing, but still, she was told she would have certain channels and she's not getting them.

Jennifer came and spent 5 hours today and made a big dent in unpacking some of the stuff!!! Hopefully it will ALL get done soon.

BTW is there anyone else that would like to have a mini BAR down here in the Tucson area? I there are places for people to park their wheelie houses and also lots of parks for us to meet in the furs. Please let me and mum know if there is an interest.

I would also REALLY, REALLY REALLY like to thank Amber the Weinie's mum for spending so much time on the phone with her it has really helped her.

and mum realy HATES WINDOWS10!!! It is always screwing up her posts

I just noticed that it has been almost 2 weeks since my last post. I am sure some of you out there have the problems getting1111 your secretary (aka mum in my case) to buckle down and do a post. She really has no excuse except that she still is not feeling 100% and the doctor cannot figure it out!!! She has an appointment this afternoon to go over the results for the tests she had done last time she was there. This has happened before -- (before my time with her--bol) where she just feels like crap. Usually, watching a good program on the telly will help get her out of it, but we still have NO telly service yet!!!! Jen has been coming over and gradually getting stuff put away. Yesterday, mum came across a bunch of stuff that she brought over with her!!!! It is mostly letters and cards she received from her friends when she was in Habonim in London,from when she had her open heart surgery back in 1961!!!! There were a couple of things from a bit later, but that was mostly what it was -- she started almost having leaky eyes from some of it!!!!!

Anyway, hopefully this yuckiness will not go on for much longer -- she said that last time she told the doctor she was "sick of feeling sick". She had a different pcp then -- unfortunately, that doctor has since retired!!!!!

Oh, well, I just wanted to let you know that we were still around and trying to read your posts -- mum is still having problems with windows 10!!!!! So what else is new, huh?

will catch up with ya

As I mentioned in my last post, Uncle Vic invited me and mum over for the Super Bowl and to stay overnight. Well, on Monday morning, as mum was getting ready to take me home, they were arguing and mum was no paying full attention to me!!!! I took advantage of this to take off before she could get me hooked up and Coco followed me! BOL Well, mum and Uncle Vic tried to follow us but they were too slow. They said they went all over the neighborhood but could not find us!! We had a great time but after a while decided to go back home!!! We got a major talking to about not doing it again, but they were so happy to see us, we were OK --- BOL BOL BOL

Mum and I took off to come home but mum was not feeling well for the rest of the day -- of course, I put on my nurse's uniform and took care of her till she felt better late in the day. We called the doctor's office but could not get an appointment till Friday but agreed to go to the ER if she got worse, but she finally started to feel better!! *sigh* not a fun day. Oh well......

so, I will go back to taking care of mum for at least today

This is the start of the post that WIN10 tried to eat

The court case against me (for an incident last July) IS FINALLY OVER. Mum took me with her on Friday. We started out at the lawyer's office. Mum had spoken to him on the phone but had never med him in the furs before. I, of course, behaved myself -- even on the van!! After discussing the case, and mr attorney checking out me and my leash, etc., to prove that it had not been me, but the other dog provoking what happened, we walked over to the courthouse. It was pretty chilly out, and the City Court House at one time had been a several level high garage so the outside temps came inside -- except in the court house. Mr. prosecuter and our attorney chatted a while then the Judge came in. Of course the "victim" did not show up, so the case was dismissed "without prejudice". Mum and I were so relieved that it is all over. She had been making herself sick with the stress of it. Of course, we all know that I did not do anything wrong and if the "victim" had kept control of HER dogs, nothing would have happened ..... Mum had to wait for a ride home and got pretty chilled. We got home around 4 pm and she made herself some ramen noodle soup and relaxed till it was time to leave. She had been trying to get to Temple for the past couple of weeks, but for one reason or other didn't make it. She was determined to make it this time. She says she is definitely gonna go again, but she is gonna try to sit closer to the front in future!!! After, there was an Oneg with the most delicious cream cakes, etc. When we did get home, she tried getting on the pc but fell asleep in the chair, got up and then went to bed. I was very good to her and let her sleep.


Mum had started a post and Win 10 screwed it up again!!!!

I was telling about the fact that THE COURT CASE IS OVER -- had only been hanging over us since last July and was the cause of all our moving woes!!!1 Anyway -- to cut a long story short (if it ever shows up, we will post it then) the CASE WAS DISMISSED 'cos the "victim" never showed up!!! In the meantime mum was so stressed out over it!!! She has spent most of today sleeping and relaxing. Our neighbors across the hall (two very nice Mormon missionaries) have been helping mum a bit with the unpacking and, after sleeping on the floor for several nights, they finally got the bed cleared off. Aside from having the bed, she was very relieved that Sixpence had not been buried under the bags/boxes, etc. However, that means that Sixpence must have gotten out!!! Tigger and I miss her, but hopefully she found another good home. Mum has not decided whether to get another kitty yet!!!! I let mum sleep late this morning then, after she took me out, and read the paper, she went back to sleep for another few hours!!! She is feeling somewhat better!!!!

Well, I'm gonna let mum go rest some more and will post again in a couple of days

Once again Windows 10 tried to defeat mum -- but she has figured out what to do!!!!! When she has these problems she laughs at herself because (87 years ago when she was still working) she used to be the one troubleshooting problems for other people in the office!!!! I think she has just gotten lazy as she gets older -- she says she's entitled to it!!!! Anyway, she figured out how to get to this point and be able to post on my blog.

Things are starting to get better here -- things are starting to get organized; however Jennifer (the person doing the organizing) gets sidetracked by movies and cds that mum has!!!!! Oh well, at least it is getting done!! Today April (a friend of Uncle Vic's and mum's) is coming over to her. She is desperate to find the bags that have her can opener, food and pots and pans so she has some more stuff to eat. She is flat broke and does not have a can opener to open some of the cans she has!!!! Also, she broke one of those curly light bulbs and they shatter into tiny bits. I musta stepped on a piece of it cos my paw hurts and I am limping but mum cannot afford to take me to the vet. We are also very low on my Rimadyl and she does not have the mony to pay for a refill!!!! Please, wont someone give some money to my GoFundMe account to help us out!!!!!

Mum finally brought my kitty sistahs home on Saturday!!! Surprisingly, she was able to catch Tigger quite easily!!! She thought that Sixpence was under the bed, but when she tried to get her out it turned out to be Uncle Vic's kitty Kiki!!!!! Mum finally found her hiding in the closet and grabbed her!!! While mum was trying to get her in the carrier, she (Sixpence) pee'd all over mum's leg!!!! Mum was not very happy with her!!! Anyway, we started off home -- Sixpence was in a carrier that Mum could hang on her wheelchair, I, of course was on my leash attached to the wheelchair and she had Tigger in the hard sided carrier on her lap. Tigger complained the whole way home!!! It was just spitting rain a little as we were leaving Uncle Vic's but when we got to our street, the rain started to really got heavy!!! Poor Tigger's carrier had air holes in the top so she was getting rained on and she really started complaining -- really who could blame her!!! and, of course mum and I got soaked!!!! We were all very glad to get home. Mum let the girls out of their carriers and the were very happy and immediately started investigating. Sunday morning when mum took me to our doggie park, it was raining really heavy AGAIN. I quickly did my business and we went home again for mum to change her clothes and me to get dry!!!!!

Mum was hoping to get DirectTV and Century Link for her internet but apparently there is a lemon tree blocking our having directtv so mum had to cancel that and Century Link. She spent almost an hour on the phone making sure that it was cancelled. Century Link insisted that had not charged her anything, but lo and behold when she checked her bank account, they did put a charge on there. Mum could not speak to anyone there until yesterday and again it took more than 30 minutes to get it cancelled. They kept saying they had to check something and put her on hold, and then a different agent would come on who knew nothing about it so mum had to keep repeating it. One agent gave her a "different" phone number to call if they got disconnect and, guess what, yup it was the phone number she had called!!!! Finally, she was told that she would get a refund in 3-5 business days!!!!!

Well, at least things are starting to get bit better -- the wifi here is still sporadic!!! Mum was very happy to get onto Uncle Vic's internet when we were there and got quite a bit of "business" done while we were there on Saturday!!!

Well, mum wants to go get a cup of coffee and read the paper as it is still dark and she wont take me out till it gets light out-- in about an hour or so. So good buddies, I will say

Yes, its true -- there is a nice doggie park here. Mum has been taking me there every morning. It so much better than when mum used to have to walk me around till I pooped and peed -- although at Uncle Vic's there was an area of land where the doggies used to poop and pee, but it was not offleash!!!!! There are also lots and lots of pee mails for me!!!!! I like it here, although mum wishes that she could just wiggle her nose (as Samantha in Bewitched used to) and have everything put away!!!!! She did turn her recliner around so that she can now put her footrest out in full!!! Jennifer (Uncle Vic's housekeeper) is coming tomorrow to help her. She will get the stuff in the kitchen put away so that she will be able to start using it!!!! Jennifer has told mum she will help her put some pics up on the blog here. Mum has been using the WiFi here at the complex. At first it was veeeeeery slow, but today seems to be working better. Hopefully things will continue to get bette. The kitties are still at Uncle Vic's -- hopefully they will be home this week.

Will write more as things settle down.

Hope everyone had a Happy New Year, Mine was not so good -- people were setting off fireworks, and cos someone (me!!) pulled down the shower curtain, I could not hide in the bathtub so instead hid in Uncle Vic's closet -- bol.
Anyway, after Mum took me and Coco out yesterday morning, she went over to the new apartment. There was a mixup with the paratransit van so she did not get to the storage place till about an hour later than she planned. The guys who were loading the van were really nice. They were deaf so mum communicated with the with miming and written notes. As they were bringing her stuff out, she almost cried a couple of times because the people who had loaded into the storage unit had done such a lousy job. Sturdy boxes were falling apart that should not have been because of the way they were stacked. My kitties' tall scratching post seems to be falling apart!!! Mum said she is gonna call Walmart to see if they will do anything about it cos it is not that old!!! Anyway, by the time they unloaded the first truckful it was too late to load anything more -- the storage place was gonna close soon. So the guys followed mum to Uncle Vics to get the stuff there and are gonna meet her Wednesday to do the rest. After they had left, mum realized they had not taken everything, so it will have to go today (Wednesday). Again, this is costing her way more than she planned so if anyone wants to go to my GoFundMe page and donate to help out it will be greatly appreciated -- she reminds people that she is still paying for my last vet visit ($450). Part of the problem that it is taking so long is that before mum moved when she was expecting the exterminator everything was put into bags!!!! Oh well, this too shall pass!!!!!

Mum was so exhausted that right after she and Uncle Vic ate dinner (they ordered what she said was the most delicious ribs -- of course we didn't get any!!!) she went to watch TV and fell sound asleep!!!! Now she says she will probably we awake most of he night!!!!!
