Back to The Young and the Restless. Chelsea had given birth in the cursed Abbott cabin after falling in the lake. She quickly gave birth to a baby boy in the cabin with Adam's help after Adam fished her out of the freezing water. The baby boy was given to Victoria and Billy to adopt and raise. This child is really Billy's son, who was conceived in a foreign country. Victoria wanted to name him Cecil, but decided that they should name him John--after Billy's father. Jack, who can no longer walk, has decided to reclaim his company by marrying Genevieve. The woman left him at the altar, and left it open for Jack's ex, Patty, to dress in Genevieve's wedding dress, whip out a pistol, and shoot him. Jack is paralyzed, but has taken physical therapy from a man named Sarge. Nikki slips into an elevator with Jack because she will follow him to his marriage in a Las Vegas chapel. Neil's son, LaVon has a risky and expensive hearing surgery and can now hear. The Naked Heiress is toning down her appearances and is going straight. Michael and Lauren argue about Fen spending too much time at his brother's home because Lauren feels that Daisy will harm him. Phyllis receives a worn copy of Black Beauty that was left to her by her dead father. Her sister received nothing. Chelsea's mother leaves the hospital room because of Chelsea's demands. Adam wants to keep his role in the baby's birth a secret. To be continued . . .
I am confused. But that's okay. That's my M.O. Maybe I should move on to The Bold and the Beautiful, where Hope is on anxiety drugs because she can't compete with Steffie. So she takes drugs and falls into the pool.
As she lay there dozing next to me a voice inside my head kept saying, "Relax, you are not the first doctor to sleep with one of his patients." But another voice kept saying, "Paradigmsearch, you are a veterinarian."
I've sent mine. Not 3,000 dollars I might add, I'd be in the West Indies if I had that kind of money to spare. But as those criminals from Tesco say, every little helps. Btw, I think it might be an e-cheque- I'm rubbish with Paypal.
By that I mean, not rubbish in terms of credit, but how to use the US version. They always seem to want credit cards, I don't believe in them, I have a debit card. There does not appear to be that option.
3 or 4 months. And it could be really grim. And I intend to do everything possible to avert the final death blow. I was a deer-in-headlights for awhile, what with my Dad dying and literally a half-dozen other things. A confluence of events that I think would have brought most people down. If there ever was something that would make me believe in trends, my experiences during the last 12 months have done so. But all trends have to come to an end. And today is as good a day as any.
Indeed. and there's also other staling tactics. ie; writing to creditors and offering a reduced payment for a couple of months. As you will no doubt point out to them, it is better to accept a reduced payment for a few weeks, then no payment at all, ever. And, when you reach liberation period, you will be able to maintain full payments once again, and make arrangements for arrears.
What I have found appalling during the last 12 months were the brick walls and other obstructions that society threw up every time I tried to deal with the half-dozen "challenges" that I am dealing with. Everybody has problems, but the never ending societal sabotage whenever I tried to solve any of them is what finally caused my crash and burn. Hopefully, the statistical anomaly deluge is now over.
People are people, PDS, they are flawed (I'm thinking about me, I am deeply flawed) You actually haven't crashed and burned yet, or you would not be here. There is no way around it, but trust me, if I got through it then so can you. Grief is all consuming, but with the help of a couple of pals, you'll survive. I think Janesix is a pal, too.
Good point. A more accurate metaphor would be that I'm flying at a very low, descending altitude with mountains looming in front of me. The mountains are categorically not going to disappear; in fact, I'm surrounded by them. I have to do what is needed to rise above them. Not a bad allegory for life; the constant struggle to get over each new mountain that we all continually face. Each dollar represents a one-foot gain in altitude. This is what we do our entire lives; until God takes away the plane. If we've been good, God will take us away with it. If not, then He does not.
Cardisa, you are so funny! You were one of the lucky ones who have escaped from The Young and the Restless. You most likely have your sanity intact??? My mom used to work in a cannery, and when everyone was doing a seasonal layoff (no tomatoes for the Campbell Soup Company), they all stayed home and watched soaps. Or if they worked the swing shift, they watched soaps until it was time to show up for work.
As you know, these soaps are vanishing. They are more expensive to make than reality shows.
Wouldn't you just love to write a soap and give it some ooooomph??? It's the same old thing. People die, they have sex with twins, kill lovers, get marooned on islands, suffer from amnesia, etc.
But I have been watching Y&R since I was a kid. Now, I like to see the jewelry and clothing. As you probably know, they are marketing a whole cosmetics line on QVC after Jabot. John Abbott's cosmetics company.
Thank you for asking. Phyllis and Nick are still together. But only after a few times of wandering off. These people depicted on soaps have too much energy for me. Their problems alone would give me ulcers.
I do enjoy the cat fights. All these beautiful women and their perfect dresses getting messed up with wedding cake. That was the most recent one. It sure beats the WWE! Or whatever they are calling it now.
Thanks Arlene. I do feel saner! I liked Sharon until she started getting to be like everyone else but still hopes she and Nick will re-unite. I have no idea who some of the characters you mentioned above, I don't remember who Chelsea is.
