My wishes for this month are:
1) Lotions for extremely dry skin ( for hubby)
2) Instant tea packs you mix in water (to go drinks)
3) Anything as a special surprise, as my birthday is this month (the 20th) ,and we won't be able to celebrate it as money is too tight. I'd love to know my birthday matters to someone other than myself.
4) Special wish: I know this is a little early but my hubby's birthday is Sept. 5th, and it would mean a lot if someone would remember him on his special day. He'll be 74. Bob rarely ever gets any mail and I'm pretty much the only one that gives him gifts. If someone would do a little something for him, it'd mean a lot to me a well as to him. Things he likes are: White Tee shirts ( XXXL), Anything to do with fishing, ball caps, anything with a Navy theme.
Thanks in advance to all who grant my wishes.

As many of you know, I just returned from vacation in Boston. We loved Boston but some things that took place after we returned are worrisome.
Since we flew out of Pittsburgh and my parents live so close, we spent Monday night with them so we could visit again. My parents are both in their late 70s. When we got to my parents' home, I found out that my dad is having some serious health issues. He is the strongest person I have ever known and when he finally admits that their is an issue related to health, it is worrisome. Not only did he admit that he was having issues, we could see that he was in lots of pain and has lost a great amount of motor coordination. He would hardly move and he would have to grab ahold of something to keep from going down. He is also having some kind of back issues as he complained of severe pain. We were there until Tuesday afternoon and nothing improved but he refused to go to any doctor. My mom and I begged him to go but he refuses. (it isn't a money or issue, it is a stubborn issue of messing with his schedule) I called again for about the 10th time since I returned home yesterday and he isn't any better.
My wish for this month is for prayers for my dad to find answers to these health issues and prayers for my mom to be strong enough to deal with my dad's stubbornness in this situation. ( MY dad is finally going to the doctor tomorrow. He isn't doing any better but has refused until this point and actually made an appointment.)
Adding: Prayers for a friend of son's family. Seth's friend, Shane 31, committed suicide on Friday and no one seems to know why. He had the world by the tail or so everyone thought. He was always in the paper for his good works and deeds and his success in high school, college and his chosen career. We just never know why someone can choose to do something so drastic.

I need to add a possible wish here please...
I am also looking for any perfume samples or scratch and sniff stickers or anything that would have a fun smell on it.
They will be going to a girl with autism who really relates to the world through smells.
I will be sending to her over a long period of time so anytime you find something for her you can always feel free to send it my way.
Thank you so much to anyone who can help!

Some of the usual for me:
Broken/unwanted jewelry, rhinestones or beads
Red cologne (kind of goes fast doesn't it?)
NEW: the spray top from any and all colognes, especially the taller spray tops (can even be the spray tops from those room freshners/smell stuff)
Happy heading toward mid-August everyone :)
I am still trying to find my old favorite Dixie 3oz cups. They come in a yellow box and look like: http://www.cvs.com/bizcontent/merchandising/productimages/large/4200043900.jpg
The animals make me smile :) I have called Dixie and sadly this product has long been discontinued.
Important note: Please do not spend money on a similar blue box version of these cups. It is NOT the same product. The yellow box had 10 different animals. The blue box only 4. The blue I can find out here if I had to. I would love one more box of the yellow :) Please, please, do not spend the money Amazon is asking for the yellow cups either! Rite Aid and sometimes Walgreens had these cups buy one, get one. I have also purchased them at Smart and Final and supermarkets such as Ralph's (Kroger maybe for some of you) and Von's (Safeway maybe for some of you). Target and Wal-Mart have not had them in ages :/
Thank you for keeping an eye out for these cute critters for me. I appreciate it and all of you, always so much :) God Bless you!

Hate the 80s? I'm your girl! 80s music is my favorite and I go to shows almost every weekend. I'll take anything 80s you got, except CDs, movies, actual media- have no use for that. Neon, jelly bracelets, etc. I looooove the 80s! :-)
