I have to work tomorrow. I wasn't planning on it, but our office manager is having some health issues so I will fill in so he can go for tests.

Pat sounds like you had lot of fun this weekend.


We went to the store and then out to eat. Did do a little running around. It was a nice day yesterday it was only 62 just need a light sweater. No really plans for today. Just getting ready for the work week.


Hope everyone has a great week! emoticon

Thanks Sandy. I wish reading was an alternative but with my eye issues I need bright sunlight (maybe need to invest in a good LED lamp!) so I do my reading during the day.

Yesterday I went with friend to Wild Florida, a wildlife nature park. It was a beautiful day to go and we enjoyed seeing all the wildlife. It took us about 3 hours to tour the park which happens to be 2 hours south of where we live.

Today was our annual poker run-we do it by boat on the lake which our community sits on. I believe they had 12 boats participate and all carried passengers-someone said about 120 people participated. I didn't win anything but it was nice out on the water, if a bit cool early in the morning and afterwards the boat club also sponsored a dinner. The boat club sponsors several activities during the year and they money they make they donate to help care for our docks.

Pat - I am glad to hear that you are keeping busy. I know what you mean about the nights. It will just take time. I found reading helps some.

The Medicine helps as long as I am on it. Once I come off it they come back sometime. I am hoping this time that a second dose will help kick the shot back in to the system. I have 2 pills left and I get my shot on the 28th. So, hoping that when I get this shot all will be good.


Our weather has been really warm here too. We got into the 80's one day this week. Not looking forward to summer this year. If we are already getting warm temps now. I love the 60's or 70's weather but, not any higher.


Hope everyone has a great weekend! emoticon

Sandy hope the medicine gets things under control.

I have had a busy March. Our weather has been up and down but Mar has been cooler than Feb which was way too warm-a lot of 80's. I am hoping we stay cooler for a bit as I am not ready for the upper 80's already. Summer is way too long here.

I finally managed to get caught up with the weeds that took over while I was sick and my back was hurting. I hired someone to do my big windows in my FL room. Have to pick & choose the tasks that are hard for me to do.

Friends are trying to keep me busy but the nights are so long - I miss having someone (my hubby) to talk to. My sleep pattern is way off so hoping I can get it back on track.

Well, I had to go on the Medicine that I hate to take but works. I can only take it once a month for 7 days when I am having a bad break out.

I got another raise of .50 cents. My boss said it's for putting up with her. Ha! Just happy for making more money. Just wish it was less work.

We got into the 70's this week which is very different for us at this time of year. But, we are back to rain come this weekend.

How is everyone doing?

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Thanks for the vote of confidence Sandy. Sure hope you can get rid of those hives soon. That has to be miserable. I feel sorry for you dealing with the "work ethic" of a millennial. Kids today do not have the same work ethic we do.

KEEPITUP05 - You Got This!

Pat - One step at a time. I know it is not easy but you are strong and have a great many friends to help.

I am doing good. My hives are not quit under control but, they are getting their. It has been bitter cold here in the morning. It has been in the teen's with the wind chill. Work has been really busy as we are only two people. We are thee but we are working as two. Long story - let me put it this way we have a millennial kid working with us and he just had a kid and his parents have money and he really doesn't want to be at work.

Hope everyone has a great week.

I am trying to get back into a "new normal" and reset my routine.
I am working on cleaning out the freezer and pantry and adjusting what I purchase since I am shopping for one these days.
I am still trying to figure out my finances-wishing SS would hurry up and get things straightened out so I can do a budget based on my "actual" new income.
I continue to work on figuring out what my life is now that I am no longer a full time caregiver. I feel like I have lost my identity.
I am working on getting my affairs in order and cleaning out items of DH's that I know I will never use. Some things I am going to give to our kids and others I have donated to friends and thrift stores and even gave a homeless man that DH befriended items I felt he could use.
I am blessed that friends are keeping me busy so I don't have a lot of "alone" time to sit and think.
