  1. until

    Susi, Salena, and I will be there tonight.
  2. Awesome. Who ever he/she was, he/she should NOT prepare food for a living. Sorry for not making it to the meeting last night. The cook issue was a concern, but not a primary concern. I am preparing for my final exams and final projects coming due in the next couple of weeks. I cannot believe I graduate, (well, IF I pass Epidemiology), this summer. My surgeon cancelled my back surgery in June, so the VA Medical Center authorized me to have it done outside of the VA Medical Center system. I am trying to schedule surgery with the surgeon who performed my first back surgery. Should be hearing from the scheduling department in the next week or two.
  3. I'll be there. Susi and Salena were not too impressed with the food at the last meeting. Hope it was just a different cook or something.
  4. Looks like a nice shop, to me.
  5. Sorry I missed it. Two more months of classes, then a summer internship, and hopefully some free time for a few weeks before back surgery. I'll probably need some coffee during recovery. Might be best if that happens near my neck of the woods and on a weekend so Susi can drive for me.
  6. A new place already? I liked that place, and it was easy to find. LOL. Wish we could've made it, but with sick women in the house, and me forgetting it was meeting day, it just wasn't in the cards. I'll see if I can find the post about the new place before I ask where the new place will be for February.
  7. I am unable to "Like" posts and replies. Did the "Like" button disappear for some reason?
  8. Sounds good to me. I'm liking the food and service, (most of the time), at this place. Susi and Salena have agreed with me about going there just for dessert and coffee. I might try to do that before the next semester starts.
  9. Susi, Salena, and I had a great time. Good food, great conversations with some wonderful people.
  10. Where? I see the "Share" button, but nothing else. I can't even upload or insert the photo of what I'm talking about to show you what I see.
  11. We'll be there.
  12. That would be a nice setup to see. I'm glad you were able to sell your truck. The money should help out greatly with the baby-prep activities.
  13. Merry Christmas everyone. Enjoy time spent with family and friends.
  14. It's that time of the year, again. Merry Christmas everyone.
  15. Not exactly where I thought this was going, but it's close enough.
  16. Any updates? Is the truck still missing?
  17. Hi everyone. Tomorrow is the due date for my last final exam. It is five-parts, but it is the last exam of the semester for me. I cannot believe the first half of my senior year is nearly complete.
  18. That was "fun" as far as final exams go. Time to kick back and relax a bit. I am really looking forward to next week's dinner meeting. I haven't driven Puddle-Jumper (PJ) in a long time. She needs to get out on the road to stretch her legs.
  19. Well, I've finally come to the realization that no matter what I do, my disabilities (primarily my low-back) will not allow me to do the things I want to do. That doesn't mean I'm giving up. I cannot stand at the kitchen sink long enough to rinse dishes and load up the dishwasher, so my chances of obtaining/holding a job are extremely slim. Too many VA representatives, other veterans, and healthcare professionals have said more than once that I should file for SSDI because I might qualify. These folks have been saying this to me since shortly after I started attending Boise State University. Well, I finally did some serious investigation and based upon the recommendation of another SSDI recipient in one of my Facebook Veteran's groups, I contacted the law firm he used. Sure enough, they felt I had a valid claim. Now, me being me, that confirmation was like a kick in the balls and am still dealing with that information. I'm still in the early stage of my claim, but the latest round of paperwork has been returned to the SSA and the law firm was notified, too. I have no idea how long this process will take, but that's for the law firm to worry about; not me. The sooner my claim is approved, the sooner they get paid. I have so many questions to ask the law firm that I don't know where to begin. I'm updating the document I created recently with my questions. As the claim process continues, I'll add more questions to the list and ask them when the time comes. In case you're wondering, the law firm does not get paid if I don't qualify for SSDI. They are handling the initial claim (which all of the law firms in the Treasure Valley I spoke with would not do), and upon any denials during the claim process, will automatically file for the next step. Once my claim is approved, the law firm's fee is 25% of the back-pay amount. They will not be paid out of my monthly benefit amount. Sounded like a good deal to me.
  20. Thanks, Muddy. One of my favorite sayings is, "Moving at the speed of Government" and it seems to fit this situation, too.
  21. Congratulations to you both on the expected little one. Did you sell your '97 yet?
  22. I'm bringing Susi and Salena with me this month.
  23. Welcome to ITD. Glad to have you here.
  24. Looks great, Cody. I love my '97 CCLB. I have no plans on ever selling her. She's hauls/tows everything I've asked her to, and have absolutely no complaints.
  25. Salena, my oldest, had ankle surgery yesterday. She came home the same day. We have her propped up on the couch so she can watch her shows and DVDs. She's having difficulty adjusting to using the "knee scooter" to get around. Backing up is NOT within her skill set at the moment. She's handling the pain very well. She's doing very well keeping on-schedule with her pain medications. Post-op follow-up appointment is next week. She'll begin physical therapy sometime next month, and will have to continue wearing the boot while at work for a while.
