My sister's daughter and her father just went to their first Daddy & Daughter dance last weekend. Josie is 5 and she was so proud of her fancy dress and date. What a wonderful tradition!

Kali: It is amazing how things pile up so fast. Laundry and dishes are the worst. I swear to you I think the laundry breeds like rabbits in spring around this place.

There's a bit of excitement around this place. The Daddy Daughter dance is this Saturday night! While Jim and Bug are off cutting a rung I get to have a hot date with a glass of wine and a movie of my choice. This is the first year she goes on Saturday. That's good because it means there's no real rush to get them both ready.

Eva - glad to hear you household is on the mend - emoticon is never easy...

Good weekend to finally put emoticon decorations away and catch up on laundry. (Amazing how things can pile up...)

Kim: I'm glad you are feeling better and glad the client did not expose you to the flu.

Kali: I'm glad your team mate has you as a cornerstone. All kids deserve a safe person in their lives. I agree, there's always been dysfunction. People would literally hide it. They still do. We as a society are just now learning how to help people heal from all of it instead of just sweeping it under a rug.

Sorry I went missing again. Brenna had the flu and I had an upper respiratory infection. It was a long week. She's going back to school today and I'm tempted to not answer the phone if it isn't the school. I'm worn out.

Buster is doing well. He's such a sweet boy.

Kim - so glad to hear you are on the mend and you aren't suffering with the flu - I've heard it's a monster of a virus.

I too think dysfunctional families were always part of the American fabric, but we 'hid' so many things...

I've sent a note to the GSP rescue folks about one of their dogs as a roommate for Liz, so I'm assuming our home didn't meet their qualifications and as I am (finally) learning, that is for the best.
Meeting this morning to approve a state funded project and then time to put together the first draft of a report - 10 year project completion!
Also need to confer with DH re: meetings - found a SS 'expert' and want to visit again with our broker and perhaps set up a trust?
Busy day!

I feel better already. I rearranged my schedule to give myself as much rest as I could today. And then had a client call out for a Friday appointment because he has the flu.

Kali - I'm saddened to hear how hard some kids have it. I grew up in a very nice family that and was surrounded by other kids in similar circumstances. It was very unusual to even hear about dysfunctional families - although I suspect there was some of that that we didn't know about. I am thankful that there are organizations and people like you that do some good for these kids. And thank you for the reminders that there are kids out there is such desperate need.

Kim - sending healing thoughts your way.

Eva - glad the vet had an opening. Buster will be glad in a couple days!

Have had a 'bi-polar' day. Wonderful zero balance massage @ noon. She worked on my feet (without knowing they'd been cramping) and my cranium (I asked for patience as a 'final' retirement date is critical for getting Medicare). I called Northeast to make sure my teammate was in and learned she was. Couldn't wait for my first meeting in 2 months.
Arrived @ the school to find she'd been in school all of a couple minutes and tried to get in 7th period to see me, but they correctly turned her away. I reiterated that I wanted to continue to try to meet with her as she needed something stable in her life and I take some comfort in the fact she knows @ least once a week for an hour, I'm there for her...

Kali: I'm glad to hear FIL is doing well, all things considered. It's good to know you had a nice trip. Sorry about the snow.

BTW I often say I am not made for winter. Southern winters are not too bad, usually. We make up for it with summer heat. But since I'm a cold nature individual the heat suits me LOL.

Kim: I hope you feel better. The bug that's been circling here lasts about 4 hours but it's really hard. It's taking roughly 2 weeks for the energy to come back after the initial illness.

I'm off to the vet with Buster this morning. It's time for him to be neutered. I got lucky and the vet had a cancellation for today. He'll be home lat this afternoon. He's not spraying yet, but it's coming soon. He's chatting up the girls and making a dash for the door.

Just when I was thinking that I was a step ahead on getting everything done, I woke up this morning with a stomach bug that would not be ignored. I had to call out to my first 2 appointments this morning. I went back to bed for several hours and felt well enough to go to one client who had a payroll today. They were understanding that I was only able to do the payroll and year end returns. Then back home to rest some more. Hopefully, I will be well enough tomorrow to see at least a few clients. Wow this bug is nasty!

Trip to Atlanta was short, but great. We upgraded to first class as our original seats were in the sardine section and decided for the minimal extra cost on a short flight, we'll just make trips to Atlanta and Minneapolis (our two family stops) comfortable.
We celebrated FIL's 92nd birthday and I'm delighted to report he is doing very well. He suffered from bi-polar disorder and my BIL worked diligently to find a geriatric psychologist. FIL has new meds which now level the valleys, but he still has to deal with loss of hearing and failing cognitive ability. It was wonderful to see him and the family.
Today is DH's emoticon and I plan to stop for a card on the way home if the emoticon stops. (I've sent him flowers @ work.)

Kim: How was the art show?

Kali: I hope you have a safe trip to Atlanta!

I never thought I'd be so happy to see a mushy yard in all my life. The snow is gone. We have our normal southern winter, rain. But I'll take it. And school is in session.

I'm looking forward to cleaning up behind our 9 days of being stuck indoors.

Worked most of the day today and then a little shopping at Sam's Club before coming home and soaking in the tub while I re-listened to this week's lecture for my course. I had such a hard time following during the live class but it was much easier this time around. Glad I didn't just go with the frustration and give up.

Tomorrow is a fun day. Mike and I are going up to Sebastian to a Fine Arts Festival and show. I am hoping he will be inspired to sign up to exhibit next year. But even if he doesn't, it will be fun to walk around and look at beautiful artwork. It will be cloudy but it should be in the high 70's so that will be nice.

I hope everyone is back to normal now after the southern storms.

Kim - your Consciously Co-creating class sounds great - glad you are busy, but not overwhelmed.

Eva - sorry for the cabin fever and Jim's schedule. I'll bet you'll be glad to get some normalcy.

Last day of work as we leave tomorrow for Atlanta. Lunch to see a colleague off and a review meeting before heading home to pack (and hopefully a soak in the tub as temps are above freezing.)

We have another snow day. I figure they will call school off again tomorrow. The main roads are okay but the side streets are still a mess!

Rhonda made it home last night. Now recovery begins. I'll check on her later today. Jim's work shut down 2 days, so now he's pulling 14-16 hour shifts to get the freight moved. Just looking forward to grocery shopping tomorrow! It's been a week since I did more than walk around outside.

We have been warm all week (in the 70's) but a cold front is moving in tonight and we will be in the 30's. One of my clients (my ex FWIW) is having his windows replaced with hurricane rated glass and they have decided to come out tomorrow while I am there to finish the job. So I will have to be sure to be properly dressed for it. LOL That will be my excitement for the week, I guess.

Still working crazy hard but still loving what I do. I am also taking a month long online course on Consciously Co-creating with God. Week 2 is tonight. So far, I am getting a lot out of it. Very excited for the class tonight

Joyce - glad you had a good day. Oregon has had some 'bad' weather this year.

Eva - good news re: Rhonda, both for coming home and the help. Our schools were out yesterday too - sub-zero temps with the wind chill. I guess they'll just shorten vacations?

Finishing a letter to my FIL about our vacation...
I may have to hand deliver it unless I want to send overnight.

Thanks for the good thoughts. Rhonda comes home today. She'll have to have a care taker for a few days before she is on her own.

Still no school! I wonder if we will go back before Monday.

Feline - I'm with you. My only regret is we didn't get our emoticon earlier...

Richard - thanks - feet are fine!

Kim - glad you are taking time for you and letting your busiest time work itself out. Florida does have its benefits...
Eva - emoticon Glad to hear they found your SIL's bleeding ulcer and you are there to take in an extra 9 year old! Gotta love those snow days.

Weekend was spent dealing with the tub. Good news is we went from this:

(that's foam and not snow...)
To a useable soak. I'm going to get an extra set of filters so I can clean the current set in the house and avoid sub-zero wind chills.

Well we got our snow! and another snow day. You cant see the tracks where we built snow men yesterday :) The good news is , we will warm up Thursday and Friday, so most of this will melt. Maybe the kids will go to school the end of the week, but I don't really look for it.

Kali: Welcome Home!

For the record I think everyone needs a hot tub. Now I need to convince my husband to tear down the deck, install a patio and put in a hot tub.

Kim: Good for you, for finding a way to manage your stress.

So we have snow. In West Tn 5 in. of snow might as well be 5 ft. We also have 3 inches of ice and sleet under it. The kids were out of school Friday and Jim's work dismissed early. Today is a school holiday, but Jim had to make a trek into work. He went in 3 hours late.

My SIL, Rhonda, had to go to Vanderbilt ER on Thursday. 4 pints of blood later they have found and have repaired a bleeding ulcer . I'm not sure when she will be released, but she's doing much much better. Her youngest has been my extra 9 year old.

At least Brenna and Anna had a good long weekend together. We've all played in the snow, had hours of board games, and a lot of fun. I talked Anna into trying some new to her foods! She's a picky eater, hates all things vegetable, so that's a big win!

The roads cleared enough yesterday afternoon that Jim took Anna to his mother's house, where her older sister has been since Thursday afternoon.

I have a feeling we will have another snow day tomorrow and possibly Wednesday since we are expecting at least 1 more inch of snow tonight.

Hello all. I have been keeping up with the posts but barely time to compose a post myself. January is my busiest month by far. In prior years, I would be having panic attacks by now. But this year, I am working on staying in the present day and alllowing the universe to assist me with rescheduling when I run out of day before the work gets done. It meant a full day of work today but I still managed to get home in time to meet Mike for the football game. My team won and now Im off to bed early to recover from my long week. No plans at all for tomorrow.

Kali: I've been trying to talk my husband into a hot tub/Jacuzzi, lol. He doesn't see why we need one, and I'm like why DON'T we need one?

Me too Richard!

It will take a while to 're-settle' after our Panama/Costa Rica trip.
I transferred pictures from my phone to computer and have yet to edit them. I hope to do so over the weekend, so I can send them to my FIL prior to our visit the 19th.
On the work front, I spent a couple frantic days tackling major issues and am feeling good with the forward movement - all still seems to be on target for a spring exit.
Next is tackling the 'science experiment' in the hot tub- it looks better than when we came home and may take awhile, but I'm so looking forward to good hot soak!

Hello all!
Just a quick check in as I'm still catching up from our vacation.
It was wonderful!

I'm doing this Brett Larkin Yoga Fusion Detox Yoga challenge on Youtube. It's a pretty neat mix of Yin, vinyasa, and kundalini yoga. I'm really enjoying it. I also found out that holding you arms above your head for 7 minutes making a circular motion is a lot harder than it sounds!

Feline: Good luck with that! LOL

This year I picked Grace. Mostly because I'm a pretty strait forward person and that doesn't always leave room for tact. If something is bugging me I'm like a bull in a china shop until I get it fixed. So a state of being present, and accepting things that can not be changed no matter how hard I bluster. This includes shouldering self made problems of other people, specifically family members.

This is my first year of picking a word or phrase. I may go back to plain goals next year.

Eva: I have a friend who picks a word, but I pick goals. I don't make resolutions because that's too much commitment (lol), but I pick goals to work towards. Last year one of my goals was to get my husband to clean up after himself.

It's a goal this year, too.

Kim: Stay warm I can't believe Florida had snow and I didn't!

Vegan: I'm just doing the phrase. I've done vision boards before, but with 6 cats in the house they become a chew toy.

It's warming up here in west Tn this week, just to turn colder by the weekend. But not nearly as cold as it was last week. We get back on our regular schedule this week. I'm ready for normal!

This weekend we went geocaching for the first time ever. Apparently it's part of their science lesson, so we drove around looking for caches in our town. We might even create a new one. I told the crew we should go hunting someone where the Pinson Mounds or a state park as well. It was fun.

It was much warmer today. We went to an outdoor wedding this afternoon. It was chilly but doable. I felt sorry for the bride. She was in a sleeveless dress. But so happy, I dont think she cared too much. Weddings are fun!

MRS EVA are you doing a phrase/words or pictures like a vision board? I want to do a vision board someday.

Happy New Year Teammates!

I hope everyone is staying warm. We have been very cold here in Florida - at least for us. I see the news for the folks further north and wonder how ones even manages that

Vegan: It's my first year. I figured I'd give it a shot over setting resolutions.

Re "Does anyone else pick a word or phrase of the year" I did that for a few years and tried to alliterate. Do you do that?

Does anyone else pick a word or phrase of the year as opposed to setting a resolution?

Happy New Year!

I have spent a wonderful amount of time with my family. I have 2 days left before Bug's winter break is over. I intend to make the most of them.
