Yes, feeling much better. This getting old stuff is for the birds! Speaking of which, love the picture of the hawk!!!

I love the card! It is beautiful!

Glad you got Killer out for a short walk. And he got groomed! Nice.

Praying for Michelle's safe trip. When my niece called yesterday I said I thought she would go back to Indiana yesterday because of today's weather. But she had planned on going back on Wednesday so it should be good by then.
Killer got groomed this morning and got a walk in the parking lot. So I called off Tracey. Then DH decided he could get a quick session in at the gym. I was expecting weather at 11 and expected him back by ten. Lucky it was 33 degrees and it came as rain because he didn't get home until 1. Had way too much fun at the gym and then decided he needed to stop at the grocery store.......I don't worry as much as I used to, but...
With the early (ho hum) groomer apt, the pet store was not even open yet, neither was the Aldi's next door. So I drove over to the next shopping center and got some B-12 and dog treats at Target while I waited for him to get done.

Good morning to my friends !!! :)

Stopping by to wish everyone a great New Years Eve, and hope it's a safe one for everyone !!!!

IF the weather behaves, we have an old friend coming over .. but we'll see .. we may just sit with a bowl of popcorn, and watch a movie .. the weather is coming in around 3, and he's expected over at around 7 .. I know he's smart enough that he won't come out if the weather is bad .. it's quite a drive to our house from his ..

But I want everyone to have a wonderful New Years Eve !!!!!

My sister and I perused the craft stores today. I haven’t shopped at JoAnn’s in a while. It was nice to take my take my time and just look :)
Bought some fabric, clearance bakeware and hand towels.

Came back, and took a nap while the kids had their quiet time. The guys spent the day watching football.

Heading out tomorrow after lunch. And they’re calling for more messy weather. But we don’t need to rush so we’ll take our time.

Going to call the insurance company tomorrow to check on the authorization for the MRI/MRA. My meds are not working, but don’t really want to call the Dr until we see what the results show.

Enjoy the evening!

Had a good afternoon with mom... she was woosey and us having problems with nasal drip .. I told her she sounds like she's got a cold ... and I got "no .. I dont get colds" ... okay mom ...lol

The TV is working, but its an extra step to get where shes going ... I took pictures of the back connections and didnt see anything amuck .. so told her thats just an extra button to push .. thats all ... and I THINK we're done with the TV ... oh yea... sometimes it turns off by itself.... I told her that I cant do anything about that unless I lmoe how.long its been on, and does it happen consistantly, and is it a certain channel ... She said she didn't know ... so I told her I need to know when and where it happens, so I can look in a specific place ...

I think that totally closed the chapter....lol

Phyllis ... yea .. Art is a real pain ...hope your feeling better ...

Hope everyone had a great day and hope Craz is feeling better ....

Michelle, glad the trip to Iowa was successful. Now you can see them more often.
Sally, I envy your determination. I work best with a deadline, but even my niece/godchild calling to say she is coming this aft isn't getting me moving.
I took Killer for a VERY short walk. Arthur Itis suggested I turn around after 2 blocks. Looks like I hired Tracey just in time. She has that funeral today so I am filling in.
I was lucky with the morning sun at the right angle to clean off my driveway. Tomorrow's nasty weather will have a fresh landing spot, but more important, my sister and niece will not fall when they get here.
And congrats on getting back on track Sally!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

ohoh .. did Craz's post go poof again .. ?? CRAZ WHERE ARE YOUUUUU!!!!!!!

Michelle .. so happy that you had a good day.. Thankful that your driving wasn't affected .. They were actually closing down the freeway's around here ..

I got a little more done in my playroom .. Hubby was out and about, and brought home Cousin's for Lupper .. I had a "snack" before I dug into my playroom, but was hungry by the time he came home ... :)

I'm thinking the work I'm doing in my room, as slow as it is ..is helping me .. because I have a bottle of water, soda, or flavored water and I refuse to leave my desk in havoc .. I cleaned off my desk 2 times yesterday .. holding all the stuff from my "anything shelves" .. behind my desk and my junk drawer ... but now my junk drawer is cleaned and organized, and my shelves are cleaned and organized .. Next is getting into the "mess" .. Oh dear .. but if I keep going the way I am .. I won't have much to move forward by the time I get all the way around .. lollol .. (either that or I'm going to eternally be circling my playroom .. lol lol .. )

Working on this, is doing something .. I'm once again only 1.1 pounds away from the 220's .. I haven't seen the 220's in over a year .. Hubby, jokingly brought out the tub of ice cream in the freezer .... Yes -- I'm still having my ice cream on my weekends, but instead of the tubs .. I have a couple of scoops in a bowl .. and have been satisfied .. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH ME ????!!!!!

Today I'm going over by mom's and looking forward to a good day .. her TV is working now, and I'm working on getting her to close that chapter (she doesn't close it well .. she chooses to linger ... lol) but we have a new challenge coming up .. they are closing her Kmart, and she's going to have to move her perscriptions .. so we'll start talking about that .. she chooses to make the decisions at the last minute, and that's usually what causes most of the troubles .. but we'll get through this as well .. it shouldn't be as chaotic as the TV Syndrome .. :)

I'm happy to say that slowly .. "I" am coming back to normal .. My stress sores on my lips, and canker sores are starting to disappear, my nerves are coming back to normal again, and my belly is starting to behave .. Last night I actually slept through the night .. first time (even WITH Mel)in over a week .. and I just plain feel good !!!

Here's wishing everyone a great day !!!! I'm going to have one !!!

Great day today. Us girls did some shopping and errands complete with lunch. Came home and took a nap. Kids loved their gifts.

My brother in law grilled steaks on the grill tonight for dinner. Now, relaxing a bit before bed.

Sally, you are my inspiration. My niece sent DH a stuffed gorilla, so I posed him (Mortimer) Uli style and send the pictures back to niece so she could see what a good time Mort is having here, helping take down Christmas lights...you know the routine.

We have ice under today's snow. It is pebbly so not slick, but I shoveled part of the drive hoping the clouded sun could get rid of some of the ice. I will get the rest later. The contract says they don't plow less than an inch of snow, and so far that's all it has been. The exercise is good for me. The exercise is good for me....the exercise is good....

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Michelle .. glad you made it safe .. yes .. this drop in temps you never know if it's ice or wet .. :)

Craz .. hope your belly is feeling better .. :)

Phyllis .. I hope that the bad memories that have been stirred up are getting better again .. :(

Had a visitor yesterday morning .. :)



I was so excited .. we haven't seen much activity in our back yard for quite awhile .. even at the birdfeeder .. :(

We got our tree taken down (thanks to hubby .. lol) and I started working on my playroom until I got distracted by dustbunnies .. lol lol



Now that my desk is cleaned off; they can race farther .. lol lol ...

I put together my last card, that I had had prepped, but the insides still need to be printed up, and the envelope made .. but I have until late April for this one .. it's for the "old" Kim ... to remind her that she's NOT forgotten about .. :( Linda will take care of the signatures for on it .. :)



So I had a putzy good day yesterday .. hubby stayed out of my way, and just putzed on his own .. Today I hope to continue with my playroom .. I'm working my way around .. but the next part I have to get over to the stereo for, and well -- that's not going to happen so I'll probably have to work my way around the other way .. lol lol .. don't worry .. I'll figure it out, as long as no more toys jump in my way .. lol lol .. You know .. that dustbunny syndrome is a horrible thing !!!! :)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day .. and we'll talk again later !!!!!!

Made it last night, but roads were not too good. Had to stay on the cautious side since we were not sure if the roads were just wet, or had ice on them.

Venturing out a little today to do some grocery shopping, etc

Loving our no plan weekend :)

Friday - Ok, let the fun begin! Its FRIDAY!

At least the weather is better today It just rained all day and was windy and raw. Today it is still cool, but not so bad. No precipitation.

Finished making turkey soup today. Yum!

Otherwise, think well just chillax today. Jas is getting a good rest from his commute, so I am glad. He needed that.

Have a wonderful Friday! TGIF.

Sally: I did too. BUT payback time today! Had chores to get done, and I did, but NOW, feeling like I trying to come down w/something.

Oh no on the freezer burned sausage. **SIGH**

Yeah for the quilt progress!

Glad that the cable is fixed. PHEW.

PHEW! Good you took charge of the ornaents. I am the same way!

Phyllis: sorry that Killers groomer was ill, but glad he can get groomed on Monday, even if it is early.

Wow! So sorry to hear that you dog walker lost her brother in the spring. **SIGH** Life sometimes isnt fair!

Michelle: Sorry that Medusa is declining, but glad she still loves her cuddles.

Hope splitting the dose of your medication helps.


Safe travels!


Love is the root of all things good in life.

PetSmart called and told me Killer's groomer was out sick today. So I have to get up early and take him in at 8 Monday morning. Ick. But he really needs it. Hope she is better by then.

Discussing our respective losses with my dog walker has stirred up emotions. It's a good thing and I have time to let them be. It turns out she not only lost a cousin Christmas day, but also a brother last spring!! Too much!

Michelle ...so sorry to hear about Medusa going downhill ..thats so hard.

YAY Mom's TV dilemma is over with .. the cable.people came out and it ended up.to be a faulty cable from the box ... she kept dwelling on it and I worked on telling her that the chapter is closed and now we move on ...I think I got her feeling better by the time we hung up...lol

Hubby decided to take down the tree today .
Man style so I put my ornaments away and left him do the rest .. I told him theres too many ornaments that mean something to me, and they couldnt just be stuffed in a bucket ..

Have a great day ... I am ...

Busy week!
Took Medusa to the vet/ kennel last night. She is slowly declining, but she’s an old girl with a terminal illness. But, she still loves our cuddles!!! I asked them to look at her heel. She seems to be losing fur off of it, sometimes in clumps. They should give me a call back today.

After work, we head out to Iowa to spend a few days with my sister and her family. This trip should be more relaxing since they are moved in :)

Increased my migraine meds, but getting an upset stomach. Called them today, and we’re going to try taking one pill in the morning, and one at night.

Enjoy your day!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

A WONDERFUL day yesterday ... and looking forward to a busy, around the house, day today as well .. (unless hubby comes up with something fun ...lol)

I want to finish my last side of my quilt, and I have a file drawer that well .. hasn't been cleaned out for years, and I think alot of the stuff could be tossed / shreadded, and I want to start working on my playroom ... and finish my last couple loads of laundry ..

I had to laugh at myself..Yesterday was the FIRST day that I didn't go out because the weather was icky .... as much as I wanted that feeling, I felt like I was "taking a sick day" yesterday .. lol lol .. Old habits die hard .. lol .. but it was a sick day where I got alot done !!! lol ..

Hope everyone has a great day ... I'm hoping to !!! :)

Thursday Wow. The week is flying by. Soon a new year! Wow.

Had the plumber here yesterday morning to fix the disposal. Don! Thank goodness. Had a few other stops to make this morning and otherwise, just getting the house back in shape.

Rainy, ugly, damp, windy . . . good day for indoor chores!

Heres to a great Friday EVE!

Michelle: Yes, jeans are a difficult thing for me to find in the right size anywhere as I am short.

Hope the extra preventative med works for you. Good to know that the Excetrin Extra Strength does take the edge off.

Phyllis: I am sorry to hear about your son. That is a VERY hard thing to deal with for sure. ((((HUGS))))

Sally: Glad you had a good day! Yes, my plans include the great indoors w/this yucky weather.

So glad youre feeling better, too! Awesome.

Have fun cooking and crafting!

HUGS ladies.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Phyllis .. my sympathies .. it's hard, I know ...

Michelle .. glad to hear that your headaches are starting to come to an end ..

Had a good day yesterday .. and today going to have one as well .. cooking, crafts and domestic .. laundry .. :) Hubby is off on a road trip today .. and so I have some time to myself .. :)

I actually get to stay inside; during a yucky day !!!!

Slowly I'm on my way back ... the mack truck has finally stopped rolling over me, and slowly my energy is coming back, and my fogginess is evacuating the premises .. lol lol lol ..

I'm getting back into my "routines", and I'm starting to feel more normal again .. :) YAY ME !!!!

gotta get myself some brunch and get going on my cooking my italians that hubby thawed out thinking they were brats .. by the time we realized it; it was too late, and really can't throw them back into the freezer .. so cooking them up today !!! :) We'll be good for meals for a week !!! lol lol ..

Talk later, and have a great day !!!!

Michelle, glad you are learning what helps in the headache dept. I hope your precip has turned to rain, like ours did. Washing away what was left of our snow, but we are expecting icky stuff in the next few days. Got my fingers crossed that I can get Killer to the groomer okay tomorrow.
My son took his own life. He was living the good life, he owned a successful business, but he hit a spot where depression overcame him, and he took the "permanent solution to a temporary problem". It has been not quite 20 years, but I can remember the numbing pain.
I used to date a guy who got all his jeans from Goodwill. Pre-broken in.

Phyllis- I am so sorry to hear about that. That is a hard pill to swallow. My cousin ended his life on September 11th. “The” September 11th. But, he was schizophrenic, and knew he’d never live the normal lives his friends did. So hard to put ourselves in their shoes and think their thoughts. (((HUGS))) to your walker.

It was hard to get motivated today at work. My boss is off this week, so I did some little projects he usually does. But, it felt really good to do my normal computer generated audit again!!!!

Went to Goodwill after work to buy jeans. I’ve had three pair split open in the inner thigh in the last month! The rest of the jeans are in great shape. So frustrating!!!! Found three pairs that will do.... I can never find jeans there that fit right. So, they fit a bit bigger than I like, but better than being so tight I can’t breathe.....

Increased my preventative med tonight to two pills. Hope it helps a bit. I don’t think one pill did anything. But, I did discover that excedrin extra strength does help take the edge off. I’ve reduced my caffeine intake, and am being stricter with alcohol (not that I drank a lot to start with)

Hope everyone has a good day tomorrow. We are calling for snow mixed with freezing rain overnight. Ick!

Sounds like Christmas was good all around.

Sally, I can't get over your mom giggling (nervously?) and wanting to talk about her boo boos. I feel so bad for her. I'm sure it's scary to find yourself doing things like that. So glad someone is watching over her.

My dog walker found out this morning that one of her cousins died "unexpectedly" (suicide) on Christmas day. But I knew that it was a beautiful day and walking a dog was as perfect an activity as she could choose to get a handle on her feelings. So hard.

I did let my brother talk me into joining Facebook so I could participate in a group set up for descendants of my mother's parents. With so many having died, I guess I may have information that others don't. Too bad that my generation may have gotten different versions of the same stories. If someone takes issue with my memories, I will acquiesce immediately.

Oh yes. I had given Rylund a huge bear hug and he said, "Why are you inhaling when you hug me?" I said to suck some of his youth fo myself! LOL Of COURSE he didn't understand, but the kids laughed.

Wednesday Had a wonderful Christmas. Quiet, low key, cozy! Left overs for dinner. That was a treat w/all the cooking lately!

It did spit snow yesterday, but nothing has stuck for good. Fine w/me!

Ry called yesterday to tell me all about what Santa brought. Hes going to need a few days to decompress! He has a ton of energy!!!!

Happy Day After Christmas!

Michelle: Glad you had such a wonderful time! And Ill bet it was fun watching Anastasia play w/her new toys!

Sally: For sure Men are difficult to buy for!

Well glad, despite some of the past mistakes being rehashed, you Mom was in a good mood. PHEW

Have fun being a crafy, domestic goddess!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Michelle .. so happy to hear that you had such a good time .. so much fun with a little one !!!

Phyllis .. so happy that you had time to spend with your brother and his wife .. I made hubby some chip dip .. he enjoys that and that will save on arguements .. he's horrible at recieving gifts .. but if I make the chip dip as a "gesture because he's been so good and I love him".. he's good with that .. lol lol .. Men are very difficult to buy for .. lol lol

Craz .. Hope you had a well deserved quiet day .. :)

We had a wonderful day .. mom was in a better mood, and I spent alot of time saying "that's in the past, we're done" .. she felt guilty because she "hurt hubby's feelings" .. Bill laid into her on the ride home about her antics with the waving down a car; and she was still trying to validate what she did... so that subject was brought up again, and then she told me of other antics that she had done over the years .. I kept smiling and saying "that's history .. no reason to bring it up now" .. but it was a much better day .. she had a wonderful day at my brother's house on Sunday, and she was in a happy mood (other than the above ..lol)

I was going to make up a batch of Manwiches today; and cook up the box of italians that we had pulled out of the freezer earlier thinking they were brats .. but I came downstairs and hubby had made up the Manwiches, so all I have to do is the italians ..

I want to work on the card that I need to have by January 3rd for Kim at work .. and if I finish it, I will drop it off, because the next few days the weather is supposed to be icky ..

I am sooo looking forward to just being .. just being domestic, and crafty .. :) Hubby is off on his Wii bowling group !!! :)

Hope everyone has a great day !!!! I'm planning on it !!!!!

Had a wonderful time at my daughter’s last night. Lots of food and laughter. So much fun watching Anastasia play with her new toys!

Today was low key. I made a small ham with some simple sides for hubby and I. It was just perfect emoticon

Late to bed, but it’s a short week!

Sally: Holy moley! And parents wonder why we worry about them! Glad you Mom had such a good time.

I am in my robe as I type, too! POOPED.

Enjoy your NA wine. I sometimes like to have that. And we have a fire in the fireplace. That would hit the spot. OH well.

Had a wonderful day and glad you did too.

Merry Christmas Evening to you, too.

Good Merry Chistmas evening my friends ...

She enjoyed the brats, and the saur kraut, the NA wine, the coffee, the chips that hubby picked up for her, and her surprise long johns for dessert ..

We had a fun time, and I showed her my quilt from heck, and she was awed by it. She enjoyed our fun with our stuffed animals, because hubby set up.a campfire again ...

We were just talking and she said that Bill had laid into her with her antics flagging down a car ... do that subject came back up ...I just told her that she "knows my feelings on that and that was over .. we moved on" and she giggled telling me that there is alot of things that she's never told me ...that the good Lord watches over her. I told her that he's got to be getting tired ... she proceeds to tell me about the time that she drove the wrong way on I94 ....I took a deep breath and said that was long passed. ... and kept trying to change the subject...but the more I tried the more she wanted to tell me the story ...giggling all the way ... I kept a smile on because that was long ago, and no need to rehash the past ...

It was a wonderful afternoon in the whole ...and hubby is taking her home now .. he asked if I wanted to go to downtown Potawatomi because they first reopened at 4 ... to get our ol'farts free money... I told him no ...he could go ...(besides we still have a fire going in the fireplace) but I was tired ...and Im happy to say the kitchen is cleaned up, Im in my PJs and Im actually sitting watching TV with nothing more to do for now...except drink the last 2 glasses of NA wine to finish the bottle ....

Looking forward to tomorrow being "normal" with no rushing, and no schedules ...

Hope everyone had a great day ... Im happy to say I did ....:)

We had a spritz of snow but nothing to shovel. Suits me fine.

It is good to be wary of falling! I am also w/both knees replaced! Its exercising caution!

I hope everyone is enjoying the day. We had a nice visit with my brother and his wife. I decided to hold off gift opening until Christmas morning. No one objected. Otherwise it gets so late before they drive home, and it is 100 miles.
So this morning we opened our gifts to each other plus the ones they brought. Such fun. We enjoyed it much more taking our time and being rested. I had wrapped up one of DH's old ties and he didn't recognize it. But will wear it again now. When we were first together, I wanted to know what to get for him, so I asked "What do you want for Christmas...besides a tie". And he would go off on "don't get me a tie" but never said what he wanted. So I went to a men's store to get the cheapest tie I could find. This year I saved the money and gave him yet another tie he didn't need. From the bag of about a hundred of them that he keeps in the basement.

We awoke to a nice covering of snow. Thankfully, it didn't start until brother Ed got home. Not enough for the plow to do our driveway, so I shoveled, but enough so I am wary of walking down the hill with Killer. I already told the dog walker that starting this coming weekend, she can take him seven days/week. But not if it is snowing hard or sleeting. I must be getting old, I am afraid of falling. But Killer gets what he needs. Maybe I will drive somewhere that is not a hill and take him walking. He will love that.

I picked up Anastasia on Friday night, and spent Saturday being lazy around the house. These headaches are taking so much energy out out of me, especially when you factor in the work days. I increase the dose for the preventative med this week.

Heading down to my daughter ‘s today to celebrate Christmas. Decorating Sugar cookies, and she’s making prime rib. Should be a fun day.

Merry Christmas Eve!!

Good morning to my friends...

Hubby is taking me on a road trip to the Dells today, and I can tell my brain is exhausted
.. there have already been a couple of things that have taken me aback .. guess I forgot to flip the brain switch this morning . Hubby and I are just having fun with them ...lol

I AM DONE... and the only reason I am going back is because I made a promise to Jimmy and I dont back out of promises easily ...The next step should take 2 days at the most because its something I did for years ... the inventory thing was the first time I had done it on this computer so I was leaening as I went. . And its something I can file away in my junk file in my brain .. because I WILL NEVER NEED IT AGAIN!!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas Eve!!!

No Sally, you chose well. That was too much to get done quickly, and by that time you were too apt to start making mistakes. But you WILL have it done before Christmas and you are inoculated against agreeing to help again. The downside of being indispensable.

I was kidding about putting everything in a couple of boxes, but now I think that may be a good idea. Sally and I are supposed to be enjoying our retirement! Killer and I had a great walk this morning. And I got all my laundry done. I will clean the bathroom tomorrow before they get here and also set the table then. DH used to say "run the front end loader around the living room". That has to happen today.

I only found out about one more death in the family through holiday contacts. We still have one left in my mother's generation. It seems like responding to the cards received takes more time and effort than sending the cards out. But my youngest niece sent me the sweetest sympathy card regarding my BFF.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Today is the end .. I know it .. It will be just a couple hours and I will be done .. I wanted to finish by last night, but there was a bit of a couple of road blocks .. and well -- didn't make it, and then hubby texted me at 11:00ish, worried because he hadn't heard from me since about 1 .. I told him I turned off my phone sounds because Linda was texting me about "looking at this customer and that customer" .. and I sent her a picture of my stack of paperwork, and told her "If I have time" .. she got the message .. and well --I didn't have time, but I turned off my sound to my phone .. because I kept it behind me, and kept getting interrupted ..

I didn't make it, but I put a pretty darn good dent in my pile of paper .. :) so it should only be a couple hours today and I'll be done .. ...

BEFORE



AFTER



but by 11 last night I just couldn't push anymore ..

I told hubby that I was taking my time this morning, and am sitting with my cup of coffee and my "friends" .. and having a couple slices of the chocolate chip cherry bread that a friend of hubby's gave him .. (it was delicious !!!!!)

Hubby is out getting makings for Christmas lunch with mom .. I'm making brats and saur kraut ..something I know she enjoys .. and hope she does .. *sigh* ..

My last couple days are in my blog .. I would be typing forever .. all I can say is I hope that everyone's holiday is much quieter .. :)

Okay -- gotta get myself going here, and wish everyone a great day !!!!!

Saturday Breakfast out w/Jason! Lovely. Starts the weekend off right.

I am still getting things prepped for Christmas Eve (we are going to celebrate then) and so looking forward to it.

HUGS and enjoy your Saturday!

Phyllis: Oh boy, thats good at least that you got the shipment stopped.

Supposed to get maybe some snow on Christmas Day. Not looking likely, though.

Hope all is well w/everyone else!

Hugs

Happy Saturday. I have to get the house ready for company Monday afternoon. A couple of big boxes to throw everything in should do it. I got off to a bad start when DH got a bill in the mail for something he did not buy. I was able to call them and stop the shipment, but customer service isn't open until Wednesday. On the other hand, there is nothing more I can do about it today.

This will probably be my last weekend of walking Killer. We are supposed to get "weather" most of the week after Christmas day. Living on a hill with no sidewalks it can get real hard to stay upright. So far so good with not breaking anything (not since the fall 40 years ago...) but no pushing my luck. Scraped up hands and knees are not becoming at my age.

Friday TGIF! Started prepping some of the side dishes (like cut up veggies, peeled potatoes, that kind of thing.) Finished baking. Really didnt do much of it, but whatever doesnt get eaten on Christmas Eve dinner will go home w/the kids. Ill keep a little for Jas, but can always make more if he wants.

Rainy day yesterday, so it was a good day to bake!

Thats about all the news thats fit to print from here.

HUGS and TGIF!

Sally: Happy dance that the counting is done! Wahoo! Good you have the day today!

Sounds like a wonderful day! Glad hubby is going with you to the party tonight. I know youll have fun!

Wow! Breakfast in bed. Thats worth lotsa hubby points!

Phyllis: Yes, last I heard, less than 10% chance of a white Christmas. My heart isnt breaking over that! LOL

Yup . . . shortest day of the year today. THEN the days get a little longer. ILL take it.

Agree, I can take colder weather, but just give me the sun!

HUGS ladies.

Yay! Sally. You can consider the company party your second retirement party1 No more dirty rows of parts. Enjoy the new nails.

I took Killer walking early today because I get my last followup with the ENT doctor this noon. It Was COLD! A little ice where yesterday's rain collected, but we get to have a green Christmas. Possible flurries Christmas eve but now they are hedging on that. Doesn't feel like Christmas, but I don't mind so much. I prefer not to have to shovel or hear about all the traffic accidents.

Today is the day. Dec. 21. Winter solstice. The days will start getting longer!!! That is MY hallelujah. I can make it through the rest of winter as long as the sun comes back.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

FINISHED THE COUNTING YESTERDAY !!!! WOOHOO !!!! I'm ready to go back into retirement .. :) Tomorrow will be my last day, and I can turn in my "hours" ..

Today is going to be a Sally day .. hubby is off with mom again .. and well -- I have the day ..

I'm going to meet up with Leonard for lunch. We're going to Maggiano's and I'm having a chopped salad with shrimp .. my favorite there !!!! (and maybe a glass of wine for a personal celebration ... !!!! )

Then from there I am getting my nails cleaned up .. I was going to go before lunch, but then I would be sitting and watching the time .. This is supposed to be a ME day .. and no stress !!!

Then I come home for hubby .. he's going with me tonight to the company after hours party .. that I'm really looking forward to .. I want to dress for Christmas !!! and I want to have some fun !!! Hubby said he would go with me !!! (I was going either way, but I'm so happy that he's coming with ... !!!!)

Tomorrow I may not post, because I'm hoping to get in quick, and I know it's going to be a long day .. but I'm going to do it !!!!!

I was there until 10:30 last night and this ol' girl ain't cut for 12 plus hour days anymore .. lol .. the good news is once I settled down, I slept like the proverbial dead; and hubby served me "breakfast in bed" this morning .. (made up a box of sausage patties that we shared .. lol)

So -- Sally is smiling this morning .. and hoping it stays that way .. I have to get myself going here .. so we'll talk later ..

I hope everyone has a great great GREAT DAY !!!!!

Thursday More baking today. Enjoying it. Have no outside chores to do, so that is a happy thing!

The weather is a little cooler than it has been, but definitely tolerable. Raining @ the moment, but may change to snow mix later on. Supposed to have perhaps an inch on Christmas. Well see! Weird weather.

Enjoy Thursday!

Michelle: Wow! Glad that you had such a thorough assessment by the neurologist. Hope that the treatments work and that the MRI/MRA is negative! Good grief! Obviously the powers that be that determine only 9 pills are allowed has never, ever had a headache, let alone a migraine!

Hope you get some rest!

Phyllis: Wow! Good for you for the $182 win, but boo on the machine eating it all up again! But yeah again on winning it all back + $81! Awesome.

Yup . . . still hearing those hallelujahs.

Sally: Hurray! The counting is done! AWESOME!!!! So happy for you.

Now you can enjoy your holiday!!!


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Michelle, I love your new doctor!! Didn't find one thing and stop, kept checking for additional variables. So happy you have light at the end of the tunnel! Just knowing that should relieve some of the stress and pain. Good luck.

Did fine at the casino. DH wished me a jackpot on my first spin. Actually it was my second spin that hit for $182. But my sis was late so I put it all back in before she got there. Then went back to the machines I like and got all my money back plus $81. So basically I played on their money all day. Merry Christmas to me. Also, sis gave me a bunch of home made cookies! I have to stop being so lazy and make some one of these days. But it was good not to have a whole batch with New Year resolutions around the corner.

Sally, I was lucky to get a temp job helping with inventory at the local Ben Franklin when I was in high school. A friend worked there. A memorable experience. So glad you will have help for the last row. And done just in time to really celebrate Christmas. You and Barb both get your hallelujahs. Start out the new year in good shape.

Very pleased with how the neurologist appointment went. She does believe they are migraines. I am starting a new preventative med tonight. I have a very tense neck muscle that she wants physical therapy to help with. That muscle may be adding a bit of a tension headache. We ran some bloodwork to make sure values are good. And I’m being scheduled for an MRI/MRA to rule out aneurysm since my Mom had one a couple of years ago. It was a very thorough appointment, and am happy with that. The goal right now is to find a preventative medication that works for me. Insurance only allows 9 pills for the medication that is taken at onset. So, we want fewer headaches :)

Hoping for some sleep tonight. Audit at work is done. I left early, so I’m not sure how it went.

Wednesday Did you by chance hear a chorus of angels singing HALLELUJAH yesterday afternoon? Yeah, that was coming from my attorneys office. They have EVERYTHING together to close my parents estate with the court. Just had papers to sign. Have to keep the estate acct. open, though till the federal tax return is processed for my parents. But I AM DONE! Hallelujah! t was a day of mixed emotions, because it makes my parents' death so final, but on the other hand I am so relieved that I got things taken care of the way they wanted them to be. Miss them both and hope they're proud.

Dental visit went well. Root canal and post DONE! And let there be more hallelujahs!

So, today baking. Hurray!

Hugs

Michelle: Glad you got a loaner car.

Thats progress anyhow that your headache has dulled. But sorry its still there. Good luck with your neuro appointment.

Phyllis: Glad things went well meeting your sister. And that is so nice of her to bring your DH aged cheddar, even though YOU can get it by you!

Thats awesome that Killer was waiting for his walk when the dog walker came!

Sally: So happy youre feeling better today.

Well, sounds like the dental appt. went relatively well. Do your homework! Worth it.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

(shhhhhhh .. dont tell anyone .. but I'm feeling good today)

Michelle .. I'm happy that things are turning around a bit .. I'm sorry that you had such a bad day yesterday .. .

Craz .. YAY that you are done with your root canal ..

Phyllis .. I hope you enjoy your time with your sister .. Hubby was there this morning .. ...

The dentist gave me some homework for June .. or I'm going to have to get some antibiotic shots .. focus focus focus !!!! That just added to my day ..

BUT .. with everything that was thrown at me yesterday morning, I stopped for lunch, and then got to the office, and just ripped through the partial rows .. frustration makes the focus so much more intense .. I have 2 full rows left .. one for today and one for tomorrow (worse case scenerio) and then nighttimes; and Saturday will be getting the information in ..

I'm very thankful for my friends on here .. thank you !!! (leaving it here)

My frustrations yesterday made me push harder to get the stuff done .. and I accomplished alot !!!

I got home at 8:30ish, and didn't even think of food .. I left when I started seeing the numbers dancing across the screen .. (side effect of being awake since 1 am ..lol) and went right up to bed, after getting cleaned up because I felt like a grease pit .. I think I worked on the dirtiest stock yesterday .. lol ..

Today we are having a company lunch .. so that will cover me until I get home tonight .. :) another late night, and hopefully since I got an AWESOME night sleep I can push more and get more done !!! :)

Hope everyone has a great day, and we'll talk later !!! gotta get myself some light breakfast, and then on my way !!! :)

Michelle, I feel awful about the day you had yesterday! So grateful that your DH was in a position to take care of the car problem, and time helped the ache. Sometimes you just have to stop and take a deep breath and soldier on. Hope you don't have another day like that...ever!

Today I get to see my sister. She always brings my DH some great aged cheddar. I won't tell her that I found another place we can get it, I'll let her be the hero. We are meeting at the casino, but I will not be staying long. I didn't even stop at the bank first. She has to be in Janesville by noon and I want to be home by then, too, before the dog walker comes. DH will stay home until I get here. Yesterday, Killer ran to the door when the walker got here and then stayed and waited to go for the walk!! Yes!! It sure beats a few weeks ago when he ran and hid under my desk. I guess he didn't like being walked as part of a group. He likes the freedom of controlling the walk himself.

Now, EVERYONE in instructed to have a nice day! "Unless you have other plans"

Ended up getting a loaner car. It was offered, and hubby thought it would be easier with my appointment.

Relaxing tonight, and heading to bed soon. Hoping for a better night. Headache is dulled, but not gone. Hopefully, it’s dull enough for sleep. Bu, I’m only working 6 hours tomorrow.

Enjoy your night!

Tuesday Off to the dentist and attorney offices today. Dental appt. had to be switched, but still still able to do both, thank goodness. Will be busy!

Hugs

Sally: Glad you are seeing the light @ the end of the tunnel! AND learned the word NO . . . short but powerful little sord!

I wish you good luck @ the dentist.

And I sure hope you get a nap in, too!

So sorry that your friend is dealing w/lung and spine spots after having a lump on her breast. **SIGH**

Yes, there are so many things that put our challenges back in perspective.

Phyllis: Doesnt it feel good to unload. YES.

Good that things arent tanking w/the season and the loss of your BFF.

Michelle: Oh my. HUGS! So sorry youve had such a rough day. **SIGH** Good luck @ your neuro appointment.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Michelle... just think of it like I do ... stuff has been tossed at me so fast this season I dont know where to duck anymore ....BUT what keeps me going is the knowledge that someone else out there is having more troubles than I am ...

My friend has found spots on her lungs and her spine after going in for a lump on her breast ... I have my health ...

People out there have had thier parents pass ... I have my mother (when she starts to get frustrating)

People out there have spouses that abuse them ...I have the most loving man in my life ...

When I look at things in this fashion, even though "frypans hit me in the face" once in a while ... its only temporary ...

I hope your problems are only temporary, and you find the positive again ...

Been a rough couple of days......
Rough day at work yesterday. I can’t complain, since it’s my first one since I started here almost a year ago! Came home and noticed a chipped tooth emoticon Went to bed early, and woke with a heads around midnight that won’t go away. Thankfully, my neurologist appointment is tomorrow. And, my car was smoking when I pulled into work today. It’s a hose leaking antifreeze, but it’s bulging so I can’t drive it home. Hubby going to see if his boss’s other sho can fix it. Luckily, we drove separate vehicles today.

It can only go up from here, right?!!

Oh, Sally! I hope you get a nap in before you go to work! And take some wake up type drink with you! I used to swear by ginsing soda, but I haven't seen any in a long time.

I was able to put together the things I have been saving for my niece. I will give them to her mother tomorrow and she can pass them on when she sees niece to celebrate holidays. Our Mom gave her coin collection to that niece and, although I sold much of my brother's collection to benefit the estate, There were some parts of it that were more fun than valuable that I thought she might enjoy. I also had a Where's Waldo book I finally remembered to pass on for her boys. Now that niece is settled in her new house, I can load her down... Yay, something out of my house!!

So far so good. Christmas is one week from today and I have only gained a couple of pounds. That, in spite of having lost my BFF. Still down from my all time high.
