    ROFL!!! I've got one of those radios too. Never really used it. I'll have to see if it has the right kind of port.

    I bought it because hubby had been saying how important it was to have one. Cashed in quite a few points on a reward program to do so. And then he looked at me all perplexed, like, what did you buy this for? Because you said you wanted one. I did? Brother. Lot of perfectly good points down the drain. Oh well, I am prepared for the next disaster. I have to admit, knowing it might be able to charge my phone makes me feel better about the darn thing.

    I have one of those radios, I listen to the weatherband fairly often. It has a solar charger on top, so it sits on the windowsill and gets turned on when I am washing dishing, etc. I haven't actually tried to charge the phone with it, but I imagine it could be done if I had to. Everyone here on my road has phone service through Time Warner, which is the very first thing to go down in any type of weather. You would think with all the elderly folks someone might think to get a tracphone or pay-as-you-go or something. (Money is not a problem for these people.) If I did have a landline, I would get bare-bones service and have a regular old-fashioned phone with a cord for use in emergencies, as cordless phones need electricity. Okay, I'm rambling now, I'll stop.

    Ugh... The weather in Connecticut (at least on the shoreline) is soupy gray. It's kind of warmish too, not especially seasonal. The weekend was fun. My eldest boy is helping our cousins (for folding money), to do some painting. Since it's a trade I've worked in during younger days, I went to get him started and spent Saturday doing that. It was nice working with him.

    Sunday was a rainy day and we spent it home. SWMBO is gone this morning to Colorado for a week-long conference so I'm Mom and Dad. Good news is that my eating had moderated and I'm back on track. If the weather improves I'll walk during lunchtime. I can't walk in the AM because I won't leave the boy alone in the house, but SWMBO is back Friday night late, and then I can get back to it in the mornings. Fog has rolled into the world around me, but my fog has lifted a bit. :-)

    I am glad you are seeing your way through. I have no doubt you will persevere and get through this. It's nice to be back on the right eating track, isn't it?

    So glad you are feeling better. Sometimes we just have to soldier our way through the grey weather, literal or emotional, until the sun comes out again.

    The day has been spent in shock and sadness at what happened in Newtown. I ate some food I didn't taste it. SWMBO is coming home later. Tonight I spent playing with Boy, relieved that he wasn't in Newtown, that he is alive, trying to make some sense of it all and utterly failing.

    Most of the day I spent imagining the horror that those children and all of their parents must have felt, then shaking my head, cycling between sadness and anger until it became too much for me.

    Newtown is 40 minutes away from here. I felt this exact same way on 9-11-2001.

    Hug those you love, tight.

    I'm so glad you checked in, I was thinking of you and was a bit worried. I didn't know how far away you are from Newtown. I wish I had something really wise and helpful to say, but I don't. Just that I am thinking about you and all those who are suffering because of this.

    Just horrifying stuff today! SO VERY glad that you and your son were not involved. I immediately thought of you when the whole thing came up. I have been out of it today after hearing the news ... was supposed to be baking for the kids birthday party tomorrow, couldn't keep my mind off what had happened and managed to wreck one cake completely and then forgot a few ingredients for the frosting on the cake that turned out ok - and only realised after I had frosted it already. Can't bring myself to get worked up about it - not when people are suffering so deeply. Tried to figure out how to tell my kids about it, we don't have TV and I want them prepared in case they hear about it in another way - carefully told them, but how to explain something that evil to innocent children? Kept it real basic and simple and unspecific and we prayed together. DS said he felt like he wanted a gun so he could go and protect the kids too....

    Whew,

    I still am in shock...

    I hear about tragedy every day, we all do. People killed in Iraq, Afganistan, Syria, horrible inexplicable events all over the world, but this one has really gotten to me. Maybe it's because I live close by, maybe because I have a child the same age and can't blink away the horror-filled images in my mind, but I'm shaken up badly. Everybody I know is safe, this was not the case on 9-11-2001. But somehow I feel more connected to this tragedy.

    I am going to shut off my computer and step away from social media for a bit. I just need to order the thoughts in my head and I find I am compulsively checking news, Twitter, Facebook and everything too much. It's too upsetting to me.

    I don't know when I'll be back, but if it's not before the holidays, Merry Christmas, or whatever you celebrate to all. I'm sure I'll be back here next year ready for some resolutions.
