Yes, I am glad Jas got to stay home today since his office was closed again. But he is going in tomorrow. Oh well.

Oh man. After this, ready for spring.

HUGS

Thursday Another bitter cold day. NOT quite as cold as yesterday, so thats an improvement. Right now it is -19 F w/the wind chill of -38 F.

Jas office is again closed. The Wind Chill Warning is still in affect til this afternoon. Again our little burg is closed! This weather has been unkind to the merchants.

Well, its Friday EVE. PHEW. What a week, eh!

Glad you made it home! Thats awesome that you got the jump start wo quickly.

Yes, finally seems like the interminable cold is slowing! Thankful!!!

Phyllis, Michelle: Hope youre both all right!!!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

What a day ..

After finding the car didn't start .. my immediate thought was "well .. this is normal ... I had a fun night, it was a GREAT room, and had a fun time ... " ... but pushed that out of my head .. and just "took the situation at hand" .. realizing .. we weren't stuck in the middle of somewhere where there was no weather protection .. this was just a minor inconvenience .. nothing more ..

and then within 1/2 hour our 4-5 hour wait was over .. hubby called me and said he was waiting at the "pickup" spot outside the doors .. JACKPOT !!!!!

It ended up that the call came through; and this particular truck was only a few blocks away .. he called and said he would just take it .. He was there, called, trying to find the car, and hubby went out to meet him .. he jumped the car, and hubby gave him $10 .. for the "good samaratinism factor .. " . ... and we were on our way .. :)

We made it home safe and sound, and hubby apologized because he didn't talk much on the way home ... "he was worried" ... I told him I understood, and as we got closer to home, we started getting silly and normal again . :)

We made it home (thankfully) safe and sound, and spent the rest of the day at home .. I got 3 hours done on my paperwork, finding myself falling asleep .. so I decided to stop .. I got about half way through the pile .. I'll work on it more today ..

I got a few loads of laundry done, and will work on them more today .. :) NOT going out today .. lol lol . The cold is supposed to break tonight .. and will be able to take the 2nd shift tomorrow .. so I can start entering this stuff .. :)

Today I send in my hours for January .. and will start February fresh .. :)

I am keeping my "eye on the prize .. " .. MORE TOYS !!!!! :)

I didn't do much posting yesterday, because I could really not keep my eyeballs open once I got home .. I crawled into bed at about 6:30 realizing it just wasn't going to work .. and don't remember hubby coming up, last I remember was the beginning of my 7:00 show; and that was it .. ?? I was gone .. gone solid !!!!! and slept until 6:30 this morning .. I think I was pooped !!!! lol .. I think it was falling asleep after 1:30 in the morning, waking up at about 5:30, and then everything that happened ... I could understand .. :) but look out today .. I need to take brain breaks through the day .. :) I'm hoping to finish up my pile of paperwork, so I can take it back tomorrow ..

Hoping everyone has a great day !!!! and stay safe and warm !!!!

Wednesday All I can say is . . . cold. -20F real temperature. The wind chill is -45F. Just as predicted. Going nowhere. Staying warm.

Jas office is closed, so he can work from home (has things to catch up on).

Stay warm and safe out there!

Michelle: Sorry about the headache, but glad you called in.

Stay safe! Hope youre feeling better.

Ladies, stay safe!!!

Wow, was that wind cold yesterday!! Migraine started yesterday morning, and is much worse today. I called in. It was too painful yesterday, so I know it would be much worse to handle today. But, my heart is not broken knowing I’m not dealing with the -50 windchills.

I’m working on a custom order for a customer, just machine embroidering a bib. But, when I worked on it on Tuesday, the tension was way too tight. So, I spent last night in the wind looking for a bib. I got the last one from my sister. Hubby went with me into Walmart to look. But, walking into that wind to the car was just too painful. He dropped me off and picked me up at the door for the other places.

We also picked up some RV antifreeze. We were told it would keep our kitchen drain pipe from freezing, like it usually does. And, it’s septic safe!

I thought about you guys yesterday when we finally got packing snow. I picked up the snow I had tracked in and made a ball out of it, but DH left the kitchen before I could make use of it.

Sally: GOOD choice. Just took a run to the grocery store (1/2 mi. from here) and it is a mad house!!! Barely any milk, eggs or TP left! Stocked up on those anyhow, but jeez.

I'm glad you'll be working from home. Jason just got the word that his work (in IL) is officially closed tomorrow. They only had 6 in. of snow. But brutally cold there, too.

Tuesday Wow, good thing we got the shoveling done yesterday. It is I cant feel my face cold out there right now and not going to warm up any time soon. Oh well. Bundle up. Stay warm.

Jason did try to get into the office today. I was not happy, but off he went. About 30 min. later the phone rang and it was him. Hed only gotten about 1 mile from the house and encountered 6 accidents. He was turning around and coming home. Thank goodness! It is just brutal out there. So, I KNOW he is not going out tomorrow as it is going to be colder. Its already -30F wind chill and gong to be -50 tomorrow wind chill (actual -20F)

HUGS and stay safe if youre in the grips of this cold wave!

Glad DH is driving you to work. Good planning.

So happy that your brother is doing well.

Ladies, hugs and stay safe out there!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

A good day yesterday .. Worked in my playroom, and found some more stuff that well -- I'm going to have to do an internet search to figure out how to use it ..lol .. but it's turning into a "treasure hunt" .. every time I work on a section; I find something that looks like fun, and is intriquing .. :)

Going into the office today .. hubby is taking me, and then picking me up on the way through to go downtown later .. (we don't want to start too early anyway .. lol) .. so I'm looking forward to that .. :) just the chance of going away .. YAY !!! We'll be back early enough tomorrow for me to go into the office, and get a few hours in .. Even though I wanted to start working after hours this week .. I don't want to be there alone and then find that my car doesn't start .. (even though I have faith in Beauty) ..... I have plenty to do .. :) so there's no problem .. :)

I just texted with my SIL... and she said my brother is doing well .. he's not taking anything but antibiotics ... no pain meds at all .. this is a good thing .. But she said he's downstairs, and everytime she hears the saw, she gets nervous .. I told her "not to .. it will be the same as when he took the tip of his finger off with the grinder years ago (highschool) .. he's going to have a LOT of respect of the saw for awhile .. and pay attention to what he's doing ..

So -- he's doing good ..thank you for the prayers and good thoughts .. :)

With that being said .. I'll stop in later .. but until then .. Have a GREAT DAY !!! :)

Long night with sketchy sleep, but expected it this time with the snow coming in. Headache isn’t as bad as last week though. Thankfully!

We had 7 inches of snow when hubby got up at 4 to plow the driveway with his tractor. By the time we left around 6:30, we had 2 more. He’ll be plowing again tonight.

The one back road with horrible, but much less traffic. Most roads were plowed decent. Have to watch out for people more than roads. Had someone pull out in front of us this morning. There wasn’t anyone behind us.....

I had hubby drive me to work, and he’ll pick me up. Need to make up time for appointments anyway. I’ll gladly have him chauffeur.

Be safe and warm!

Monday All I can say is O. M. G. Lots of snow, blowing snow, snow drifts, wind and just general ugliness. Cold as a witches bazoomba. Soup, hot chocolate, anything to stay warm. Jas is working from home today and probably tomorrow. No way to get out . . . roads not driveable.

Heres to a safe Monday

HUGS and stay safe if you are in this storms path.

Sally: You are 100% correct. Focusing on the negative sucks the energy right outta you.

OHhhhhh, chennile love it, too.

Glad your Mom and you had a good day yesterday.

HOW IS YOUR BROTHER DOING??? Have remembered him in my prayers.

Stay safe!!! And . .. dont get in trouble! The sheriff would have a terrible time getting to you in this snow! LOL

Good morning to my friends .. :)

I am on a mission today .. Positivity rules !!! I've been followed around by a negative nelson again, and I think yesterday was the final straw .. There's just so much one can take about "what you're doing wrong" .. ... I believe in "focus on the positive" .. and if you can't say anything positive or even have a positive swing .. then don't say anything at all .. It grows like a cancer when you have someone following you around talking about "everything you're doing wrong" ..

*stepping off the soapbox now* ..

I'm taking a retirement card day today .. :) and staying home with the snow storm .. Not sure what trouble I'll get into yet, but I'm sure I can find something .. lol lol ..

I went to Meijer yesterday before going to mom's .. she needed a few groceries as well .. and it gave me a chance to just browse a bit .. :) I found a few sweaters that were marked down from $35 to $8 and $7 .. :) Nice chenile ones .. :) Love the feeling of chenile on my skin .. :) So that made me excited !!!!! :)

Mom and I had a fun time .. she was sooooo happy yesterday .. :) She had had such a fun day with my nephew and his girlfriend .. That was wonderful .. We did come to a disagreement however, because "Kathy is still friends with Joanna on FB" (Chris's ex wife) .. I told her so was I .. the divorce was amicable, mutual and no hard feelings .. it's not like she did anything so wrong ... "well .. that just isn't right" .. Ohhh moooommmmm !!!! ...

I was happy that my brother called her and told her of his accident; and the good news is that while he may have lost the feeling in his finger .. it could have been soo much more worser .. He's taking antibiotics to keep the infection away ..

We both had a case of fumble tongues, and we laughed so hard all afternoon .. the more we fumbled the harder we laughed .. lol .. We had fun playing puzzle, and talking jibberish .. lol lol ..

Today I'm just hanging around the house ..:) and putzing .. do laundry ..Mom sent a ton of quilting magazines along home with me, to look through .. I think part of her is afraid with the troubles this last quilt gave me; I wouldn't do any more quilts, and she wanted to keep me motivation up .. lol lol .. so I may just sit in front of the window, and watch the snow coming down, and look through Quilting magazines ... lol lol .. I have to return them, but I thought that was nice of Ceile to let me look through them .. :)

I also started wrapping the box that I'm going to put the quilt in; so when Julie and I get together for lunch or breakfast, it will be ready to go .. without having to rush .. and wrap it .. :) so I'll probably play with that today as well .. :)

I sent a text to Jimmy letting him know I wasn't coming in, and would be in the "early" shift tomorrow because tomorrow evening I had some plans come up .. :) This IS still my life .. :) and they are working with MY schedule .. lol lol ..

Watching the snow fall down; I am happy to say I've been looking forward to a day like this for a long time .. to be able to take a snow day without feeling guilty !!!

Wishing everyone a GREAT DAY !!! I'm going to enjoy myself today .. :)

Sunday Still cold! -4F w/heaven only knows how low the wind chill is. Going to get a snow storm today into tomorrow. With the frigid temperatures, cant be outside for long stretches of time, so will have to do the shoveling in stages. Ah well, thatll be CV and ST for today I guess!

If youre traveling, be safe and take it slow and easy. If youre in the path of the storm, be careful!!!

Hugs and blessings.

Sally: Glad you had a good day yesterday.

Love the cardinal! They are so vibrant in this winter season!!! (well the males are anyway).

Well, for sure if the weather is as bad as they predict, Id be pulling the retirement card!

OH NO! I am sorry for the news about your brother. Definitely prayers.

Just found out that my brother kinda sounds like he cut off his finger yesterday and went to ER for emergency surgery ...Hes on antibiotics now to keep infection away ...

And I was a good girl when she wrote to me what a wonderful support having the whole family there with her ... Sally was a good girl ...

But as for my big brother .. please send up prayers that he wont get any infection .. she said the odds of him having feeling in that finger was a big possibility of nothing .... that can be lived with ...

Welcome to retirement big brother ... and it sounds like mom knows already so that is a good thing, but she wanted to tell me "so I would know what mom was talking about" (gee thanks) ... bad feelings aside, I pray there us no infection to follow. ..

Good icey morning to my friends ... :)

Had a wonderful day yesterday .... and played with THEIR money all day .. Hubby and I had a "reminded" agreement that if I wasn't having fun, I could just say something and we'll pack up .. Well-- I used up my allowance around 1:30, (saving one of my winning tickets that reimbursed my beginning allowance for wen I was finished .. :) ergo .. leaving with more money then I started with .. lol )

I got some walking in .. not much, but my feet didn't hurt, and my legs didn't hurt (legs hurting is pretty much from not walking because feet hurt .. lol) but nothing hurt .. WOOHOO !!!!

Today .. I'm thinking of heading over to mom's .. See what she says cuz she spent the afternoon with my nephew and his girlfriend supposedly yesterday ..

I've been playing with my toy this morning, and have gotten a few "flight" pictures, and my cardinal has shown up .. :) WOOHOO !!!




I've learned how to connect my camera right to my computer .. so I've been putzing this morning and having fun !!!! :)

I figure the more active my little birds are getting, the more practice I get now .. the better I'll be with my speedy little hummers in the summer .. lol lol ..

Am seeing myself calling a "retirement card pull" for tomorrow with the storms coming in .. but is supposed to stop by noon tomorrow .. so maybe I'll do my 2nd shift, and get away with it .. I HATE not having definate plans, but there's not much you can do in this weather .. lol .. so unplanned plans are what we have to do .. lol ..

Have a great day !!! and we'll talk later !!! Stay safe and warm !!!!

We're home safe ... and surprised by the snow when we came out... thankfully hubby stayed in the slow lane, and it wasnt that bad except for a few spots ...

I heard the weather coming in and they were talking about 8 inches possible by Monday night... I told hubby that if that happens Sally is staying home from work...and I can catch up on Tuesday.... while hubby is shopping with mom, I can catch a couple hours at the office.. I told him he could drop me off and then pick me up when he's ready to go ..I will be packed by tomorrow night (and we're not going till Tuesday ...lol)

Glad we are home and it was a wonderful day... played with their money all day ....YAY!!!

Having a good day with Anastasia. Games, Play Doh, and movies. Perfect for this frigid day. Hubby ran errands. Cold water pipe for the bathtub was frozen this morning. It’s thawed now, but would like to run the pellet stove in the basement to warm the pipes up a bit. So, hubby ran out for pellets, milk, and my thyroid prescription.

Payed Hi Ho Cheerio with Anastasia this afternoon. She did pretty good. She just needs to learn how to take turns.

Enjoying our day at home :)

Saturday: Cold, thats the word of the day. Just downright freezing. We did go out to breakfast but thats all the going out there will be today! Even our friends showed. I think were getting cabin fever and it hasnt even been that long!!!!!

This is seriously dangerous weather, and even more dangerous weather expected w/a Winter Storm Watch (and I assume thatll be upgraded to a warning as up to a foot of snow is expected between tomorrow and Monday night) coupled with dangerously low temperatures. Be prepared! Be safe.

Have a sensational Saturday.

Sally: Glad you are going w/your DH for the overnighter. That will be fun.

Wow! Hope those fellas are not freezing their tails off in this weather!

Yikes! BAD combo . . . headache and being yelled @!

Glad that the headache has settled a bit.

Have a safe trip!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Well -- plans change .. On Tuesday I'm working the earlier shift, because hubby has an overnighter reserved for downtown .. and I want to partake .. I deserve fun .. :) so he has grocery shopping with mom, I told him he could take me in, I could work on my paperwork .. trust me .. there's plenty to do ... and then he can come and pick me up after mom is done .. :) and we could go and enjoy ourselves .. :) .. so I'm looking forward to that !!!!

I got home last night, and looked out the windows.. there was a HERD of deer out in the back 40 .. I think last count was about 10 ..



I almost exited stage left; because I got yelled at "to answer the phone" yesterday .. between the mega headache I was sporting, and that .. I almost packed up my stuff and walked out, but didn't .. and no .. I didn't answer the phone either .. I'm there for only a purpose, and am not spreading out, or it will end up a full time slot ......I pretty much tune out the phone ..a because whoever wants to get a hold of me; knows my cell number ..

I made it through the day with this headache... and happy to say that this morning it's a dull thud, from a piercing sporatic oww through the temple yesterday ..

Looking forward to spending time with hubby today !!! :) We're heading to the Dells .. and I'm looking forward to trying to get some "steps" ..

Talk later, and have a great day .. Stay safe ... :)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Weird night of sleep last night .. I think it's just the hidden apprehension of this next step in my project ..

Uly and TD and Lolli were busy little threesome yesterday and hubby didn't listen to me to watch over them .. (story in my blog) .. Thankfully they have settled down this morning ..

I'm going in today, and running my tests .. and I can work on the "miscellaneous items" that Jimmy has been working on finding information for me .. Keep your fingers crossed that my weird dreams don't come true .. lol lol and that this works the way I'm thinking it will .. lol lol lol ..

Have a great day .. I'm going to !!!! :)

Sure got bitter cold out there! Yikes!!! I think I’d rather have snow......

Productive day at work. Did some laundry tonight while hubby cleaned the bathroom. Anastasia has fresh sheets on her bed :)

Picking up Anastasia tomorrow, but staying home. It’s just too cold to take her out. PlayDoh, movies, games.... Perfect!!

Stay warm!

Thursday Jas is off to work today. Roads are clear. It is going to be bitter cold, though so I had him put an old blanket in the car for an emergency.

Otherwise, its Friday EVE! Hurray.

Have a good day out there.

Michelle: Wow! Glad that the neck massage is helping! Glad work is going a bit better too. Yes, it is tough to get used to a new routine!

Sally: glad youre feeling better!

Larua: OH I totally .. I was totally happy w/a snowless winter. But . . . here it is!

Hi Everyone!

I'm here and have been dropping by to read, but haven't had any time to post lately. We had a houseguest over the weekend and were quite busy with that, plus a lot of dealing with the snow. I was perfectly happy to have a snowless winter, but I guess mother nature had other plans, lol!

I need to finish getting ready for work, but will try to stop back and catch up more thoroughly this evening.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had a good day yesterday .. It was an easy day; and I got alot done .. the atmosphere was light yesterday .. and it felt good .. but there were questions .. quite a few questions ..

I was stiff by the time I got home .. and need to get into just getting on the bike for 15 minutes to 1/2 hour .. to get some activity in .. but yesterday felt better; because they asked questions, and I got up and moved every once in a while .. to help ..

I did get a big chunk done; and am actually seeing the end of this part of the job .. and ready to move to the next step .. :) WOOHOO !!!!!!

So -- Off to work we goooo .. it's off to work we gooooo ... Get more toys at the end ... it's off to work we gooooooo emoticon

Have a great day .. and we'll talk later !!!! :)

Headache was much better today, but lingered a bit behind my eyes. Had physical therapy after work, and after my wonderful neck massage, the pain was almost gone. Two more exercises to add to my routine, but we need to strengthen some muscles. She did tell me that my horrible migraine earlier this week was probably caused by barometric pressure changes due to the snow coming into the area. I never even thought of that!

Work was a bit better today. Just hard to adjust to new people being added to your team, and new routines. Felt more normal today :)

No more snow until Sunday, but it is supposed to get really cold. Stay warm!!

That road map was cute. I am enjoying getting more done now that I am spending less time on Spark. Also have more time when the snow keeps the paper from being delivered.

Turns out that rash I had was/is Shingles. I am hoping that because I got the shingles vaccine, it won't last the whole 6-8 weeks! The best I can figure is the prescriptions I was getting for my sinus were diminishing my immune system. But I remind myself how lucky I am that this is all I am dealing with and this, too, shall pass.

Wednesday: Snowed off and on yesterday. Snowed overnight. Still snowing. Jas, thank goodness, is working from home. PHEW. Stay safe if youre in the path of this storm.

Michelle: Yes, we are grateful that he found a job so fast.

Well, glad that at least the pain was less intense.

Yup . . .definitely comfort food!

Sally: Well, clearly you did need the rest yesterday.

Glad youre in a good mood. And for sure, if its not safe travels, turn around, but I know you would do that anyhow. Just sayin.

Good morning to my friends !!! :)

Boy -- when I said I was going to have a lazy day yesterday .. I really was NOT exaggerating .. lol lol .. I sat my bumm on the couch around 12:30, and literally never moved until 7 at night .. literally ..

I sat and I slept .. I keep telling myself .. obviously my body needed the rest .. and I just left it go .. but if I don't go in today, and stay home, I am not going close to my TV room !!!!! lol ..

I tried to work in my playroom yesterday to find that I sat and got caught by the dustbunny syndrome, and sat and read a magazine (with interesting articles) from 2005 .. No I am NOT a pack rat .. lol lol .. I think I mainly saved it for the Low carb article, and recipes .. they are simple, down to earth, recipes .. :)

I KNOW I'm in a happy mood .. I have a friend that follows me around (long story) .. and well .. I made a silly posting on my FB page .. "I'm pulling a retirement card, and taking today off" .. and he goes into "the company has to learn how to survive without Sally", and "It's about time that Sally fully retires" ..etc etc ... I saw that, and felt my blood pressure go up ... Ummm I have friends on FB .. that are connected to work .. They KNOW my feelings, but ummm Jimmy's wife is one of my friends, and Leonard's daughter is one of my friends; and well -- so is Linda and other's from the company who I consider friends as well .. I thought to myself .. and brought my BP back down .. that "I" did not say anything offensive, and Linda knows of this man, from when I had problems before .. that he definately doesn't think before he "posts" .. He kind of doesn't get it that "I post what I want .. but my life is relatively private .. even on here ... yes .. even on here" .. lol lol

There were a few other "urk me" posts, but I just pretty much ignored it .. and moved on .. I'm waiting for him to ask why I acknowledged everyone's postings but his .. *rather insecure* ..

But .. Normally I would go into what I call a "blood red rage" at this stuff .. and flatten him, deleting my postings (which were totally innocent) and send an email explaining once again .. the facts of life .. but I considered the source, and I've been too happy to ruin it on something so insignificant ..

*stepping gingerly off of soapbox* .. lol lol ..

I'm in another good mood .. as for going into the office .. thinking I'm going to give it a try .. if I feel uncomfortable .. I'll just turn around .. :)

I did play with my toy a bit yesterday .. but it's boring just walking around taking pictures of my knick knacks .. lol .. but my critters just won't behave .. lol ... I played with a few of the different settings, just to see what they do .. I think when the critters come around, I'm going to use the "auto" setting, or by the time I set the dials and buttons to where I think they should be; the critter will be long gone .. lol lol lol .. All a learning curve ..so I took multiple pictures of what the different settings would do .. with the smaller lens .. I haven't played with that much .. :)

So -- that's the life of Sally .. Sally is STILL in her happy place .. and enjoying ... well ... everything .. :)

Have a great day, and talk later !!!!!!

Barb - So happy to hear he found a job so quickly!!! That’s great!!

Sally - Goid for you staying home during the storm. Yes, you are retired, so you don’t have to go out!

Made it to work today. I still had some head pain, but not as intense. Did some research, and some sites say the meds work better at night. But, they can deplete your naturally made melatonin. Wonder if I could combat it by taking some melatonin and if it’s a symptom that your body adjusts to? I felt so good last week.....

We got a little snow, and a little over the weekend. Hubby didn’t plow the couple of inches from Saturday, so he did it tonight. Don’t want too many layers of snow buildup on the driveway. And there is something comforting about cooking dinner while he’s doing outside work. Hard to explain, just comforts of home. Made a ground beef casserole with corn, green beans, tomato sauce, cheese, and biscuits. Nice comfort food type meal for a snowy evening.

Tuesday Well, survived Monday! It was nice having Jason home! Had sow squalls throughout the day. Didnt amt. to much, but still forecasting snow later today. Sooooo, get another day w/DH @ home. Wahoo. Winter Storm Warning in effect 5-8 in. still predicted. Soooooo . . .again, well see what happens.

AND HALLELUJAH! John got a job yesterday afternoon! Its not the best paying, but itll put food on the table and pay bills. Never mind we brought enough food to feed an army on Sunday. So, things should be a little easier. Hes still following through w/the VA, though for help in finding a better job and getting legal advice from JAG about what he can do. Between that and Jas research, I think hes covered.

OH boy, well, glad that at least some pages were entered correctly.

Sally: Yup .. . good time to pull the retirement card w/this storm. Good for you finding your happy place and sticking to it!

Hope the rest of you ladies stay safe in the storm.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

I'm pulling the "retirement card" for today .. and possibly tomorrow .. and I'm staying home during the storm .. :) If it's cleaned up by tomorrow, I'll go in .. but for now .. Nope .. staying home .. ANOTHER FIRST !!!! :)

I'm planning on spending time up in my playroom, and working on my cleaning .. Yes .. It DID need that much cleaning .. I'm finding some really cool stuff in there .. lol lol .. it's like a treasure hunt .. lol lol

Hubby went downtown and is getting his ol'farts free money .. We had a talk yesterday .. I told him I was on a haitis for casinos for a bit .. and explained my side of the story .. and he is supporting me fully .. I will go when I feel like it, but I don't want to go because I don't have a choice, because bad days are very frustrating and well -- are dangerous as well .

I'm going to enjoy taking the day off :) and going to enjoy the snowstorm from INSIDE of my house up in my playroom .. This is another first .. and I'm excited !!! (doesn't take much lately .. lol)

Okay -- gonna get myself some breakfast and talk later !!!! :) Until then .. have a great day !!!

Yes, for sure, this ol' lady doesn't deal well w/multiple chaos either. But, guess life doesn't understand that!

Awwww, yeah, I guess this ol granny did a good job yesterday w/the magic chicken soup potion. YES, Ry so much as told me someday Im going to squish him! TEEHEE. Was that a hint????? LOL

Good eveung my friends ....

Slept like the dead last night and was running behind .... went into the office and slowlt but surely Im understanding what wrong... Most of the messups were done those last 3 days when I was pushing myself with 15 hour days.... So my project is moving along well. . And I have a plan set for redoing them again.... and if my understanding of the system is like I have always been told... it shouldn't affect the tranactions since the beginning of January....keep your fingers crossed.... time warp...lol Ive got a bit to do, but its not including the counting....so its easier...

Im still in a happy place... so thats a good thing... Had a WONDERFUL time with mom yesterday... I cant remember the last time we laughed so much....

I wanted to get up last night and take pictures of the lunar eclipse, and hubby came in all excited because it started... I know I got up, I know I walked to the window, I know I saw the pictures he took, and I know I crawled back in bed... I had good intentions, because I even took my toy upstairs... but alas... sleep was too thick....lol

So on to tomorrow... I told hubby if its snowing, Im not going... but he said its supposed to start in the afternoon... we will see... I have a deadline this time, but not really concerned about it...

Hope everyone had a great day and talk later...watching AGT .. champions tonight (I hope...lol if I dont fall asleep first...lol)

Monday Spent time w/the kids yesterday. John is in relatively good spirits considering. He has lots of support, which makes me feel better.

Awwww, and little Rylund said his cold felt better after having some of Grandmas Magic Chicken Soup. Ok, who wouldnt melt into a puddle, even in this polar weather. Then he goes on to say, the secret ingredient is love. AWWWWWW! Kid knows how to get to me! Sweet.

Brought food so I know theyre set for awhile. That made me feel better.

Jason has off today, so thats bonus good!!!!

Winter weather advisory tomorrow -- another 5-8 inches of snow, so he may be working from home tomorrow, too.

Hugs and heres to a motivated Monday.

Dang! Post disappeared from yesterday. **SIGH**

Sally: Glad you feel better!

Your quilt is LOVELY!!!!! Glad your Mom was impressed as well.

Michelle: Sorry things are tough right now. I hope you feel better! Hope the rest helped you.

Thats nice that DH got Anastasias bookshelf put together. Does make it neater to store books.

Echo, echo, echo.......

Sure is quiet in here today


Headache felt like it was squeezing my head this morning, so I opted to use a sick day. It was -13 when hubby started his truck this morning.

Got up eat something for lunch, since I skipped breakfast. Maybe it will help.

Hubby put Anastasia’s bookshelf together last night. We bought it for Christmas to get all those books off of the floor :)

Just stopped by to say Hello.

Glad you felt better this morning!!!! So many nasties going around!!

So cold out! I dropped off a bag of unwanted things at Goodwill this morning, and picked up my prescriptions from Walgreens. That was enough....

Not feeling well today. Having worse headaches with an upset stomach. And hubby and I are not seeing eye to eye. I’m sure that’s not helping. We’ll get through it. We always do.

Made a Taco Meatloaf in the slow cooker for dinner tonight. It was ok, and different. Not good enough to make it again though. It had taco seasoning, salsa, eggs, breadcrumbs, and meat. I made some Mexican flavored rice and corn to go with it. It did the job.

Laying down early tonight. Let us know if you check out the eclipse!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

By the time I went to bed last night every bone in my body was aching .. almost felt like a touch o the flu .. but I took an ibuprofen before bed, and I woke up this morning feeling GREAT ... not to mention .. slept good as well ..

I may have just overdone it yesterday .. I changed the bedding and had a wrestling match with the mattress instead of calling hubby upstairs to help .. lol lol .

But I got my quilt COMPLETELY done now .. I put random patches on the back side ... some covering booboos' and some not .. I found some more dog print material while I was cleaning my room (still cleaning btw) and one was all panels of dog prints .. I cut out one of the panels, and put it in the center of the back.. so it looks like the patches were planned .. lol ..

I did some laundry, and just pooped out .. I was tired when I crawled into bed last night, and with the ouches .. being handled by the ibuprofen .. I feel GREAT this morning .. I slept good, and feel good this morning ..

I'm planning on going over to mom's this afternoon making some stops along the way .. I did some research and found that some Walgreens have a drop box for old medications .. OTC and prescription .. so I am going to drop mom's not needed medicine as well as some of mine .. one of the stores is the one by mom's house ..

Looking forward to having a good day !!!! I hope you do too !!!!

I feel more relaxed. At leeast DS is doing what he has to getting a new job. That's a major issue, but can't do anything about it on my end.

We're going to visit tomorrow and bring some groceries.

Saturday Well, things have improved. The situation is resolved, thank goodness. Now patience. The rest will come.

Thank you SOOOOoooo much for your prayers and support. It is very amazing to me the deep caring that is part of this board!!!

We have about 6 in. of snow on the ground right now, and its still snowing. Expected to continue till noon, and I expect at least several more inches.

HUGS

Sally: Thanks for the prayers. Now, DS s major problem has been resolved, but the whole snafu resulted in him losing his job. **SIGH** For the whole thing not being his fault, thats a high price, but honestly, could have been much worse, believe me. So now hes getting help; from the VA for job help. I believe lots of it is racial bias, but that will be worked on. . . legally.

Yup . . . got dumped on. But looks like its winding down now, so thats good. We probably have 6+ inches of snow.

Glad that you had a good afternoon w/your Mom. I love your top!

I bet she was pooped! But thats all right. She did well.

Quiet day here, too. OMG, grilled cheese and mater soup!!! Thats whats on the menu for tomorrow!!!!


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Craz .. my prayers and thoughts are being sent until you tell me to stop .. I pray He takes the troubles away from you ...

Michelle .. Have fun with your Face time today ..

Phyllis .. still missing you !!!!

Well -- we couldn't dodge the bullet anymore .. Stay safe if you must go out .. I for one, am actually hankerin' down .. and just putzing around the house ..

Had a wonderful afternoon with mom .. we were both in good moods, and just enjoying the time together .. and I just left her choose where we went and what we did .. We stopped at Kmart, and she had a cart, I just left her mosie around .. and I went my way .. we met up here and there, and she just got a chance to shop .. She got a dress for Izzy, and I got myself a pretty top for myself .. I couldn't resist .. and haven't bought myself clothes in a long time .. lol



We got back to her place about 3ish, which meant that she had a 4 hour excusion .. and she was pooped .. I put her stuff away, and we just mellowed out .. she was obviously tired .. and so I left ..

I got about a block or so away, and I got a phone call . "could you come back and help me with something" .. Oh oh ... I went back and all it was was she got her deliveries, and there were a few packages that she had bought .. by the time I got back, a man from the building got them to her door, and I helped her get them inside .. One of the boxes (the heavy one) was new puzzles, and she asked if I wanted to see them, so I took my jacket off (she keeps her place around 74) and we looked through the box .. There are alot of puzzles to look forward to !!!!!! and her chairside table came .. I told her that I would be happy to put it together next time I come .. (which will probably be Sunday afternoon weather allowing) ..

So it was a good day .. :)

Today -- thankfully we didn't get hit hard, but I'm happy to say that he's not willing to take the car out .. and try the roads .. so we're having a quiet day at home .. We're talking grilled cheese, and tomato soup for lunch .. YUMMMM



and I have a few things that I want to do .. that will just putze the day away !!!! :)

Wishing everyone a great day, and talk again later !!!!!

Barb- Hugs and prayers to you always..

Brrrrrrrr....... It is cold! Calling for an inch of snow, and 30 mph winds tomorrow. Staying home!

Thinking about cleaning my sewing room tomorrow. It’s become the catch all room . Ugghhh.....

We didn’t pick up Anastasia tonight, but with the snow and cold..... It’s probably best. We might FaceTime with her tomorrow.

Sounds like Mom is back to normal, Sally. Yay!!

WHAT A WONDERFUL afternoon ...

We started out with lunch .. liver and onions. From there we paid her property taxes, and then to the hospital for her blood draw .. I asked here where she wanted to go next and we ended up a Kmart and I got a pretty top (they are closing so everything was percentage off) and after that ... she was pooped and we went home. What a wonderful afternoon ...

On the eay home I stopped and filled my tires ... I have never done that ... so mark on the wall..one more thing I can say Ive done .. I was always afraid that I would let out more air than I put in but Kwik Trips setup is so foolproof even I could do it ...lol

Im home now and pooped myself . We're going to have baked taters for dinner. ...

Hope your day is going well. The snow is starting to come down now .. Im happy Im home..Im seeing tomorrow just staying home ...

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Good news .... I discovered the problem with the inventory messup ..

Bad news .. I discovered the problem with the inventory messup but can't for the life of me figure out WHAT happened, or HOW it happened .. So -- back to square one ..

Good news... is I saved the counting sheets, and can "back date" the entry when I get that far, and I don't have to decipher that it's a part that needs to be put on Jimmy's research list, or in the computer,.

Bad news . Is I saved the counting sheets, but have to recreate the entry sheets, because I worked off of spreadsheet printouts .. this time I will create entry sheets right from the system ...

Good news ... is I don't have to RECOUNT everything .. but can USE the count sheets .. counting was the time consuming part ..

Bad news .. heck -- I can't think of any more bad news .. so I guess Good news wins this time !!!! lol lol .. Yea -- I'll have to put in a few more hours, but they won't be as intense as it was in December .. and heck -- I'm still in a good mood and got a good night sleep ..

(don't ask .. don't know but not questioning it .. lol) .. I did have a minor meltdown, but that was pretty much done quickly and I got my sane mind back .. Jimmy gave me a pat on the back and told me everything was going to be just fine .. and I felt better .. and started refocusing .. and well -- as you can see .. good news trumped the bad news .. lol ..

I was stiff this morning, because I literally sat from 10 to 5 ... getting up very little yesterday .. focused on what I was I working on .. and I knew I was going to wake up tense this morning .. but I did my PT exercises and feel great this morning .. :)

I read up on my foot pain .. and even though I have never had problems with my plantar fasciatis (sp) on my heels .. (always on the arch which I could understand) .. I was afraid of heel spurs .. but they said that heels get sore from plantar fasciaitis as well .. so I'm going to work on some of my exercises that I learned from (old) Dr B before I make an appointment to visit (new) Dr B about it .. see if I can get it to improve again .. :)

Today I'm going to lunch and errands with mom .. and looking forward to it .. She sounded like herself again when I talked to her the other day .. I'm looking forward to spending the afternoon with her .. :)

So -- I hope everyone has a great day .. I certainly am !!!!!!!

Decent day in my quiet office :)

Tomorrow, I increase my meds to a whole pill. And I’m taking it at 11:00 tomorrow. I should be taking it in the morning by the end of the weekend. Headaches are much better. Not gone, but better. I also have two exercises to do until I see the physical therapist next week.

Job is getting a bit boring. We have a new girl starting next week to help out. I hope they don’t want her to help me much. I’m already looking for things to do half the day.....

Not sure if we’ll pick up Anastasia tomorrow. It depends on how much snow my daughter gets in Madison. We’re only supposed to get less than an inch tomorrow in my area.

Stay warm! Going to be a chilly weekend!

Phyllis! Where are you?

Thursday Well, cold day yesterday, but tolerable. No precipitation and even had the sun out! Looks like were in for up to 6+ inches of snow from tonight through Saturday.

Today is Jasons 67th Birthday! Wahoo. We will celebrate Friday (he works from home). Hurray!

Lets celebrate Thursday!

Michelle: Hope changing the time you take your beta blocker helps!

Glad that there is help on the horizon for you between the PT and the meds to make your headaches cease and desist!

Sally: HEE HEE . . . think theyre all just a-hiding from us! But look we found Michelle!

Your quilt is beautiful!!!!!!!!! Good work.

Good that you had a good day @ the office and got things straightened out w/Jimmy.

Thats an awesome moment that your Mom called and shes back to herself again. AWESOMEEEE.

That is great that youre in your happy place! DONT dwell too much time swelling on the boot drop. I am gilty of doing that too, but it sucks the joy out of joy!

Thanks for the B-Day wishes for DH. Hes a good guy and doing well.

Phyllis: Hope all is well. You're missed!!!!

My meds can cause dizziness, so it was suggested by the pharmacist to take them at night. It is also a time released tablet. But, I’ve slept pretty good the last couple of days. 😊

Good morning to my friends .. :)

yea Craz .. was there an evacuation notice that we missed the memo ??? lol lol Happy Birthday to Jason !!!!!

Michelle .. so happy that you are having success with your new meds .. I'm surprised you have been told to take them at night .. ?? unless they aren't what I'm thinking ... but I'm glad you are having success !!!! and hope it continues .. :)

Phyllis .. WE MISS YOU !!!!!!!

I FINISHED MY QUILT !!!!!



WOOHOO !!!!!!!

I didn't get a good night sleep, but I also crawled into bed enormously early as well .. so it was my fault ..

I had a good day at the office, and had a talk with Jimmy .. evidentally I ran more of the business than I ever thought .. ??? I asked him .. why did Bruce retire, Gary retire, Annie retire .. and they haven't been called back ?? and I retire, and I'm here more than I was when I worked. . (not really ... lol ) and that's when he told me that I ran more of the business than I ever knew .. well -- now I know .. :) lol lol .. But I had a good day .. and will go back today and with Jimmy's help, hope to fix the problems I found yesterday ..

Mom called, and she sounded like her silly self again .. We talked, and I'll be taking her for her blood test on Friday .. and if I would like to go out for lunch beforehand .. and then make an extra stop or two .. So we're going to lunch at my favorite restaurant in her area ... Schwiefels .. :) YUMMMM !!!!! so that's tomorrow !!! :)

I'm in a happy place right now .. and am hoping to stay here !!! I really like it !!! :) (still waiting for the other boot to drop .. but holding my breath that it doesn't .. :) ) so staying in my happy place for now ... :)

Hubby went to the Dells for his free money .. I told him that I wouldn't have gone even IF I didn't have other obligations .. I'm taking a bit of haitis from casinos .. when they become more frustrating than fun .. it's time to take a break .. :) so he's off !!!!

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

Had trouble sleeping Sunday and Monday night. But, I believe it is due to the beta blocker I’m on. I had been taking it at bedtime. I don’t want to skip a day since they are working so well. So, I’m taking them 2 hours earlier every day, working my way up to taking them around 9 am. Friday, I increase my dosage to a whole pill vs a half.

Today, I had my first physical therapy session. I do have a tight muscle at the top of my neck on my right side. This has also caused loss of mobility or flexibility. She did some stretching, and gave me a couple of exercises to do until I see her next week. But, she believes that fixes this muscle along with my medication should make my headaches much more manageable.

Changed offices again at work today. Different atmosphere, but bigger desk space. It’s a good thing. I’ll miss “most” of the people in my old office. But, one is very pessimistic and complains about everything. It just gets trying after a while. Just doesn’t mix well with my personality. I’m more of a “go with the flow “ type of worker.

Hope all is well and stay warm!

Wednesday: good day yesterday. Its going to be a stay @ home day today! Hurray.

No precipitation overnight, so thats good. Still saying over the weekend, but well see.

Helping Clara get some of her things organized. Lots to declutter. But made a good dent in it.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Sally: Yes, it will be a change for sure but I think were both ready for it!

Good for you standing up for yourself. Definitely you need to be paid for your time!

Sounds like being with your friends last night is just the tonic you needed. Hurray!!

A good night sleep makes a huge difference, too. Glad you got a good sleep.


Love is the root of all things good in life.
