Don't order anything from overseas. My wife ordered a FSV Mainz shirt for me from Germany back in early June and it never arrived. It is "lost in customs" and the post office cannot locate it.

I've purchased a few things from Amazon over the past couple weeks, but mostly for the office. I need to get busy and ask the kids for their Christmas lists. I usually ask before October, so I'm definitely behind this year. We're thinking about going up to Ohio for Thanksgiving to spend the holiday with my 94 year-old Aunt. She's been pretty depressed the last month or so and I think a visit from family is just what she needs to lift her spirits.

Yes, our Christmas lights just got put up today (they start earlier and earlier every year) but we do not turn them on until Thanksgiving. We also just purchased a plane ticket for my daughter and her husband to come home. Plus I am already ordering gifts on Amazon. So definitely planning ahead but not thinking the pandemic will impact us very much.

Man, what a busy few weeks I've had! Just got through with a shoot in studio in Fort Worth, now preparing for another in Weatherford beginning this weekend. I'll be REALLY glad when this is over. I need to start focusing on the holidays and what (if anything) we'll be doing this year.

Anyone else beginning to think about the holidays and how they may be different this year?

I was at the soccer fields all day yesterday, then went to the gym and then got up early this morning for my leg workout. I am dragging a bit now but I feel good (and a little sore).

Hubby and I are heading to Malarkeys in Dallas in a little bit to watch the Steeler game. Then I guess I will come home and do some cleaning and laundry during the Cowboy game. Go Cowboys!!

Back in the office today playing catch-up from being out yesterday. I'm gonna be an extra in the shoot we're doing at the end of the month, so I purchased an 18th century dress at the Vintage Costume Shop in Plano. It will be fun to wear it. emoticon

Our HR department is conducting employee surveys to determine what people's appetites are for returning to work and in what capacity so it sounds like no concrete decisions have been made yet. - I hope you get to keep working from home (but not working as much).

Yeah, I have to agree with you on that one. Phasing back in would be the wise thing to do IMHO. I'm preparing for a big shoot at the end of this month, so I'm gonna work from home Wednesday to get last minute props and such together.

This is my last week to work from home. We've been home since 3/12. I don't mind going to office, but they are bringing back 100% and I think that is kind of dumb in a cubical farm...

I really don't like hearing when things are cancelled or postponed due to COVID. Don't get me wrong, I totally understand why it's necessary, it's just another reminder of how we're not getting through this thing quickly. :(

The steroids definitely affected me, but didn't keep me from sleeping. I was hyper all day yesterday and got a lot done, but when bedtime rolled around, I slept like a baby. Back was still really stiff and painful when I woke up this morning. I don't normally eat breakfast the the steroids have to be taken with food, so I'll have some at lunch and dinner again like yesterday.

I always hear that the steroids (pack or shot) make it difficult to sleep but I have not had that effect. And believe me, two Sudafed at 6 am will keep from falling asleep at 10 pm that night so I am really sensitive to drugs that keep me awake. - Our homecoming parade and game were just postponed due to COVID.

Picked up the steroid pack from the pharmacy this morning. The pharmacist said to take them with food and not too close to bedtime, so I guess I'll take them at lunchtime. Hoping I get some relief.

I've been coming into the office 5 days a week for the past couple months. I tried working from home and was successful, but my boss, whose office is right next to mine, insists I be in the office to answer his every question and fulfil his every need. Oy vey! We are a very small TV production company and everyone has their own office, but still, I'd really like to be at home at least a couple of days out of the week.

We are having a surge in cases here in Prosper. We get an email a day and sometimes two on new cases. The other high school had to cancel their football game last Friday due to COVID and our local elementary is shut down for two weeks. I don't know why anyone would reopen in this chaos if their employees can work from home.

I hope there is nothing wrong with your kidneys, that is scary.

I also prefer in office versus home, I like having home as a place I come to relax after work not part of my job like it has been since March. We are scheduled to go back in on the 19th...we will see if it gets pushed back again.

I thought the same thing about kidney stones. However, my PCP still thinks it's muscular. He's called in an Rx for a steroid pack (oh joy) and also scheduled physical therapy. I don't need a referral to see my urologist, so I may make an appt with him if the pain doesn't subside soon.

Well, apparently there's something up with my kidneys. I supposedly threw my back out 3 weeks ago and I've yet to get relief. Some days are better than others, but today I'm in terrible pain and moving is a chore. I've got a call into my dr.'s office.

Hey yalll! I have been out of pocket for a few days. In studio and generally working my butt off. Finally having some down time this fine Sunday afternoon. Watching some football and reading. Just finished the book “Where the Crawdads Sing.” Sobbed at the end. What a beautiful book.

I hope you have safe travels. I do not like taking meds in general, I tend to be pretty sensitive to them. I am only taking .25 at night. I have noticed I was pretty groggy trying to get up this morning.

I, too, have been suffering from more than usual anxiety the past couple months. I wore a heart monitor for an entire month a few weeks back and it all came back as "normal" so I've been taking Xanax as needed. I think I've only taken 1/2 of one in the past 6 weeks though. I don't much like the way they make me feel, so I try to breathe through it.

I'm gonna be out of town (the country actually) the remainder of this week. I get back Saturday. Not sure what the wifi situation will be, but hopefully I'll be able to log on and check in.

My last cortisone shot lasted over 6 months and probably would have lasted longer but I moved a refrigerator and strained my back again. Those things work wonders.

Cortisone shots are always my best friend. Back is 80% better this morning after my shot yesterday. Im still stiff and aches, but hoping my stretching and such helps today. She did do xray of c and t spine...if cortisone helps but not for long and xray is good I get to have that fun MRI to see if I have another disc problem.

I prescribed my first ever small anti anxiety med. Ive been having random palpitations in middle of night. Because I don't have any other signs with it, she is starting with that to see if I have developed anxiety like a lot of others during pandemic. I follow up again in December, if they are still happening she will refer me to a cardiologist to wear the heart monitor at home for a couple weeks and rule out anything heart related. I truly love my GP and fact she knows me and listens to me.

I was able to get the muscle relaxers, but insurance is giving the pharmacy problems filling the lidocaine patch for some reason. (I hate insurance!) Anyway, I'm gonna pick up some BioFreeze on my way home this afternoon.

Agreed, ice and heat are your friends. If lumbar pain, the crossing definitely helps. If the t or c spine, a lot of arm stretches I can recommend. Also Biofreeze is my best friend. Don't be afraid to try it.

Thanks so much for the tips for back pain. My back is in spasms so badly today I could hardly get out of bed. I finally made it to the office, but I'm extremely uncomfortable. I've got a call into my Dr's office to see if he'll call me in some muscle relaxers.

I have severe back problems and know some tricks for easing pain. If I sit in a sturdy chair and cross the leg on the side it hurts, it often alleviates the pain. At least it takes it from unbearable pain to tolerable levels of pain. - Also try alternating 5 minutes of heat with 10 minutes of ice repeatedly. The heat loosens up the area and the ice counters the swelling.

Well, apparently I threw my back out kayaking Saturday. Yesterday I was pretty uncomfortable, but nothing OTC pain relievers couldn't handle. Today I could hardly get out of bed and every time I move it catches my breath. I'm miserable! Ugh!!

Don't panic, they wouldn't keep calling you for more interviews if they were not interested. You've got this!

I, too, take Lexapro, 10 mg daily. A couple of years ago my depression increased so my doctor increased my dosage to 20mg. My mania went out of control and he decreased it back to 10mg. I will never again increase that dosage.

We love Broken Bow. I always find it amusing that there are more Texas license plates there than Oklahoma license plates.

I hope you found some motivation. I am doing laundry and I just finished cleaning up the kitchen from where I made breakfast this morning. Now I'm playing online some and will probably read some. Today is national read a book day, so I will take advantage on a three day weekend.

We found out they are going to try and push all of us back into office again on October 6th.

I am glad you had a good time. We got home before any hard rain hit, but we were in convertible on 75 in Dallas when it started to sprinkle, had to pull off on Mockingbird and put the top up lol

On our way home from Broken Bow. We will for sure stay longer next time. Probably rent a cabin by the lake for a few days. It was beautiful and we had a great time checking out local craft breweries and eateries.

Crossing my fingers that you hear from one of the other 3 jobs soon! Sounds like your home computer needs an upgrade, 8 years for a computer is old these days.

I'm already off work for the long weekend, boss let us off at 10:30 am

Fingers crossed for you!

Hubby and I took a couple days off, so I'm home today doing out taxes. Ugh!

I just took a huge risk and turned down a job offer. I have three other companies that I want much more than the first one so I am gambling on one of the other three coming through.

Went to dinner with the family last night to celebrate dear hubby's birthday. 2 or our girls got into a tiff and now there's awkwardness throughout... Ugh! Today is my granddaughter's 5th birthday.
We've already had the party, but I wanted to take them out to dinner just so we could so something. Anyway...

I hope you hear on a new job soon. I don't blame you at all for not wanting to do anything for those people. I had a crazy busy week last week, work deadlines.
