Good morning to my friends ... :)

Craz ... I'm sure it will be a change around your house .. but 3 minutes away .. that's called baby steps .. (for both of you) .. :) How exciting for her .. :)

I think I'm on my way back .. I've had a couple good days .. lol lol lol ...

Today I'll be heading over to the office, and start taking a look at the financials .. before the next part .. I told Jimmy that my coming in WILL be on the clock .. (they ain't getting free help anymore ... not work of this caliber) ...

I had a WONDERFUL night last night with friends .. they asked me about mom, and I told them the story. I'm glad the dinner wasn't last week, like it was supposed to have been .. I probably would have been a melted mess all over the kitchen .. last night I could tell them the story; and then change the subject to my friend's trip to Disney .. and we had a wonderful night.. and yummy food, and lotsa laughing !!! Really felt good !!!!!

Wishing everyone a great day, and we'll talk later !!!!

I slept like the proverbial dead last night .. and feel GREAT this morning .. I think the house could have blown away, and I would have slept through it .. I

Tuesday: Well, Clara is moving into her own apartment on 01 February. What can I say. Wish her all the best of luck. It’s only 3 minutes from home, so I am sure we’ll see her often (like laundry time! LOL) She’s 23 and I know she’ll be fine. Will miss her, but as I say, I am sure she’ll be here for laundry time and probably a meal or two! LOL

Freezing rain and drizzle was predicted overnight, but we got nothing. Thankful. Now predicting it this afternoon. We shall see!
Cold out, too. But going to get colder. Supposed to get snow this weekend, but we’ll see what happens. They never get it right!

HUGS and here’s to a terrific Tuesday.

Sally: Glad the day is going good so far!

Glad that you Mom is improving so much. That’s awesome.

Yes, RETIRED, RETIRED, RETIRED. Glad you dropped that word. Good heavens.

Have fun @ your taco dinner.

Phyllis: Don’t make us get the sherrif! (Just kidding.)

Michelle: Hope the medication is still working for you!


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

We're trying again !!!! lol lol ..

Pretty good night sleep, feeling good this morning, and *knock on wood* so far my day is going good .. :)

After our afternoon with mom, my day improved greatly .. between seeing mom looking so good, and setting up a small date with hubby for grocery shopping for today; and the TV stand put together ... I feel like a gorilla is taken off my shoulders .. not just a monkey .. :) Even WITH the mood dropper yesterday ..

I had a nice time with hubby .. he took me out for a fast food lunch/dinner (3:00) and a couple other stops .. but I felt like I was floating on air ..

With that .. I had pushed the text from Kim down in the basement for awhile .. and along with that for a bit my upsettedness .. and you know what ??? I got a pretty good night sleep, and this morning I sent an email to Jim and Dan, and could send a logical email without pointing fingers and creating blame .. to find out what Dan actually wants and explain that the project is not totally finished .. and wanted to know what I was looking at when the time came, so I could explain it to Kim ... (and did make mention a couple of times throughout the email the word "RETIRED" ) ... lol lol lol ..

Today -- hubby is busy all day, and I have my dinner with my friends tonight .. "taco dinner" .. so I'm pretty much on my own for the day .. I'm thinking of maybe stopping and finding another battery for my toy .. I'm happy that that is my challenge for the day .. lol .. and I'm accepting it !!! :)

I'll probably have some of my glop for lunch .. that's heavy enough to hold me until 6:30 - 7:00ish for dinner and light enough that it's not going to stuff me .. :) It's pretty much "souped up minute rice Sally style" .. lol lol .. and it's YUMMMMMMYYYYY !!!!!!

So -- I'm going to say it again .. I'm in a happy mood .. *I DARE ANYONE TO SHOOT ME DOWN !!!!!* .....lol lol lol ..

Talk later .. and hope everyone has a great day !!!!!

You know ... Ive heard that more often then not about the service. . Thankfully Ive never had service like that, but I dont go that often either. ..

Yes ... Sally is smiling again ... I think Im slowly learning how to pick my battles and well ..got kicked in the teeth RIGHT after saying again, I was having a good day, and and HAD a good day yesterday...

Seeing mom being her sassy self really improved my mood greatly, as well as having one more monkey off my shoulders (tv cabinet) ...

Shes actually going on a small shopping trip with hubby tomorrow. ..YAY!!!

Sally: So glad that your Mom is doing so much better! AND you’re back to smiling! Wahoo.

Actually, I used to like Applebees. But this one really had poor service. It was not crowded but we waited about 20 minutes before our server came to our table. And then it was ONE HOUR before we got our food. Honestly had it not been for circumstances, I would have walked out.

You summed up exactly what my focus was . . . the company! We had a good time.

Craz ... glad to hear you had a good time ...Ive had good experiences at Applebees, but no .. they dont have many selections for special needs ...

But sometimes, the way I look at it is the "company" Im with thats more important. ..

Glad you had a fun time....

Monday -Went to Applebees to celebrate Karleigh’s birthday. It was nice. Had a good time. NOT much to choose from on the menu for me, but got a Caesar salad and just ate a little of it. Rylund was wound up!

Monday and back to the work week routine.

Here’s to a motivated Monday.

Sally: Glad you had a good day!

Good luck building your Mom’s cabinet! Hope he remembers to call first!

OH NO!!! What happened????????

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Have to say I had a good day yesterday ... and I'm holding onto that !!! and holding on tight .. lol lol ..

We had a wonderful ride up north, and got my "present" .. :)



I didn't take my "toy" with me .. and well -- I saw a bald eagle sitting at the top of a tree, a red tail hawk flying right in front of the car, and 3-4 other red tail hawks .. I swear they know !!!! lol lol lol ..

We saw our deer last night again, but the last one was walking into the bushes as I got to the window .. so didn't get any pictures .. They would have been fun for "night vision" setting .. but alas .. the camera was confused because there was light behind me.. (house lights) .. so kept popping the flash .. lol .. (still learning) . lol .. but I missed my shot .. lol he sauntered into the bushes .. lol .. Oh well .. "I" saw them !!! lol ..

Today hubby wants to go over by mom's and build her cabinet .. so I'll be going over there this afternoon .. hubby has bowling, and I told him to call mom and at least let her know we were coming ..

Tomorrow I'm going to dinner with friends .. :) (taco night at one of the lady's home) and hoping I feel better than last month when I went out to dinner with them ..

Trying to just take a deep breath and take each day as it comes .. It "should" get better soon .. lol lol ..

Wishing everyone a great day !!!!!! and chat later !!!!!

Had a meeting yesterday @ 9 am and it went well. Now have to get prepared for taxes. Oh Lord, they’re gonna be complicated this year, but . . . ready w/all the paperwork.

Here’s to a blessed day.

Hugs.


Michelle: So glad to hear that the medication is working for you!

Hurray on successful potty training! That’s awesome. And Play Doh, my kids used to love that @ her age.

Sally: Glad you had a good sleep. Have a good road trip!

New medication seems to be working!!! I’ve had more energy, and headaches are much less intense. And this is at a half dose. This med is a beta blocker, so I have to check my pulse a few times a day. So far, so good :)

Spent the day soaking up our Anastasia smiles! We introduced her to Play Doh today. She was having fun!

And, Anastasia is potty trained. She caught on pretty quickly, and we were impressed how well she does. Even at our house today, no accidents!

Made sesame chicken in the instant pot tonight. So yummy!!

Saturday: Meeting @ 9 am. Then the rest of the day, have a few chores to do. Still cold, but no precipitation, so I’m a happy camper!

Here’s to a great Saturday. HUGS

Uli, Lolli and TD are inquisitive! That’s good. That’s how they learn!

Glad to hear your Mom’s Dr. visit went well and she’s got more of a sparkle in her eyes.

That’s good that you got to spend time in the playroom and DH was ok w/that. Progress, right.

Phyllis: Yes. I thought Finding Neverland was pretty good.

Letter writing . . . a lost art on the young ones now. Glad your niece writes.

Hugs ladies, and have a good Saturday.

Sally, your imps sure are great climbers.
I took Killer for a short walk today. We are going to see "Finding Neverland". I think it is about the writer getting his inspiration to write "Peter Pan". They said the music is more 60's so that is good for me. A 14 year old Wisconsin boy is part of the cast. I forgot which town he is from.
I got nothing done yesterday and don't know where the day went. I did not spend it watching TV. I did get a letter off to the niece who writes, but that shouldn't take the whole day.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Well -- yesterday wasn't the best day but you know what .. I blew it all out in my blog, and today will be a better day .. it has to !!! :) There were good points to yesterday and I'll hold onto those .. :)

Today I hope to chop up and cook up the last of my veggies that I wanted to do on Thursday afternoon, until I found that Beauty needed more surgery .. *sigh* ..

While I was out yesterday hubby found me more toys for my toy .. and well -- of course the goof's found them .. I think the camera case will be a little small, because you have to dismantle the camera in order to put it in there .. but I'll use it with the cooler that I am setting up for it .. :) but it was a fun hiding place for Lolli yesterday .. :)





And this is what I walked into .. and could do nothing but laugh ... Hubby said TD wanted to help him set it up, and well .. it was a pretty cool climbing toy .. lol .. TD seems very interested in my new toy .. lol ..



Today I'm hoping to get the gratification of chopping veggies .. and cooking them up .. and then I want to go up to my playroom, and work on the next section .. That's my goals for today .. we'll see how many roadblocks we get .. :)

Tomorrow hubby talked me into going for a roadtrip up north .. (snow is to the south) ... only for our free money, and gift .. I told him I don't want to play .. but I'll enjoy the ride .. :)

Mom's doctor's appointment ended up good .. (with a few road blocks enroute) .. and by yesterday when I came back after running out for a few groceries for mom; she had more of a sparkle in her eye .. :) I'm happy for that !!!

So -- that's the life of Sally for today .. wishing everyone a great day !!!!

Friday – Jas is working from home. We’re having our breakfast date this morning rather than on Saturday as we have a meeting on Saturday morning. So, we’ll enjoy our date today!

Still cold, but less windy, so feels a little less bitter. That’s an improvement.

Here’s to a wonderful Friday!

Michelle: Well, glad that you had the MRI done and no call from the radiologist. That’s a good sign.

Have fun w/Anastasia this weekend.

And really the Metropolol works for you.

Sally: Love your pictures! And that’s amazing that little flower bloomed.

Good luck w/your Mom’s Dr. appointment.

Laura: That’s been happening a lot w/me, too. Posts just poof.

Phyllis: Hope your mojo catches up w/you!!!

Laura, Sorry your post got eaten by the dog. But it is enough to see your lovely face. Look forward to your next update.

Sally, it sure looks like someone got a new camera! Great pics! And so nice the the plant is liking being retired, too.

Nothing happening to speak of. Still unmotivated, but the sunshine is getting better and I am making headway on my sewing. Don't be surprised if I take a break for awhile. If I can't even get motivated to track my food, I can put my time to better use until I have more to log than random thoughts.

Ugh. I just had a whole post written out and I lost it. No time to do it over, today is a busy one for me, so I will just say good morning to you all. I hope everyone has a great Friday and I'll check back in later.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Michelle .. I pray it continues good news ...

It was a crazy day yesterday; and got some fresh air, and played with my camera while I waited for my truck being fixed .. :) I got fresh air, and sunshine .. cold as it was .. I got it !!!! :)

I enjoyed playing with the buttons I had learned about .. :)







I got home and found that my little plant sprouted a flower ... the sun must have been strong enough ... :)



I brought this plant back from a straggly mess; when I left the office .. and that made me smile when I saw the flower .. .. :) Looks like it's starting to open again this morning .. :)

So -- it was a busy day yesterday .. but it was a fun day !!!!

Today I'll be taking mom to her doctors appointment .. she has alot of questions from the info from the hospital, and I didn't understand any of it when they said it; and the medicine was making my head spin .. So -- today Dr K will be able to explain all of this and I can listen as well... and we can get our questions answered ..

Okay -- gotta get myself going here .. so we'll talk later .. hopefully sooner than later .. but if mom has a grocery list, I'll be running out for groceries as well .. so don't know when I'll be home .. *sigh* .. but it will be when it will be .. :)

I've been doing alot of smiling .. it's true .. smiling will emit endorphines, that smooth over the rough edges going on in your life .. and well -- people think I'm happy so they don't fuss over me .. lol lol .. it works .. :) lol

Wishing everyone a great Friday !!! and we'll talk later !!!!

Had my MRI yesterday, and didn’t get a call from the radiologist. So there must not be anything of pressing emergency wrong with my brain....Lol
Called my Dr to see if I could get an earlier appointment. Nope. She’s booked and on vacation next week. So, my appointment is on January 31st. But I am on the cancellation list. In the meantime, I asked to try a new medication since this one has not worked at all. I started a new one tonight - Metoprolol. I take 1/2 a pill for a week, and check my pulse throughout the day. As long as my pulse stays good, I increase to a whole pill.

I’m still loving my instant pot, but need to learn how to look at a recipe and figure out if it will fit in my 6 qt pot. Made a recipe tonight that almost burned, but saved it just in time!

We’re picking up Anastasia tomorrow night. It’s been three weeks, and am needed those laughs and smiles!!!

We are breaking records for longest time without going into single digit temperatures. But most of the month has been above normal and the lack of snow kept the temp just barely out of single digits last night. Tomorrow it will be warmer and the dog walker will be back on duty.

Thursday – Chilled to the bone! The winds were howling yesterday and we had snow showers. That wasn’t too bad. Temps never got above 19F. Just cold. Right now this morning it is 14 F. bRRRrrrr. And snow is forecast for the weekend.

Got my haircut yesterday. Happy camper. Same style as I’ve always had, just shaped up.

Here's to a great Thursday! Let’s get moving!

Sally: Uh oh. Good thing you had Beauty in for check up!

Glad you are learning your camera!

Good luck tomorrow taking your Mom to her Drs. appointment.

Hope everyone else is doing all right and staying warm.

Good morning to my friends....

Well .. took Beauty in for her sinus infection (windshield washer) and they did their check and found .... ohhhhhh a couple hundred dollars more ... she has a sprained ankle that could turn into a broken one (ball joint is going and could be serious if it went on the road) and her feet need rotation .... yes ... they rotate feet . ..lol. (tires)... sooo I go back this afternoon for about another 1 1/2 hours ....

I took my toy along with me and learned another button or 2 ...

So my afternoon is pooped ... but I came home and walked thru the back 40 and took some pictures playing with my new buttons I found ... so Ingot a little cold air but fresh air and just that little bit really helped. ..lol

Tomorrow I will be late posting ... I am taking mom to her follow up doctors appointment . Yesterday was one of those days again ... again ... I haf some fun ... Im seeing a pattern here...... *sigh*

Hope everyone has a great day .. thinking of taking sime heavy clothes along and accepting thier rental and go to the neighborhood park to play more with my toy.....

Wednesday: Well, no precipitation happened yesterday, but the winds were howling! Very cold this morning – 19F. Supposed to get up to 26F, but I know it’s gonna feel colder as it’s windy still.

Getting my hair cut today! It will be nice to have a little pampering.

Grief group was nice yesterday. We actually talked about a sparky topic – meditative mindfulness! I have done it for awhile, and that’s part of my walk in the morning – meditating and getting the brain centered.

Well, we’ve made it to Wednesday. Let’s make the most of it.

HUGS

Michelle: So proud that you advocated for yourself. You have literally suffered enough1 Glad you’ll be able to get in today. About time!

Wishing your daughter all the best!

Sally: Moms! What can you do w/them!!!

Glad you had a good day and you figured out some more buttons on your camera!

Phyllis: Yup, sure needed to bundle up today! Between the cold and the wind, it’s CHILLY!

Hope it’s a peaceful day for you cross stitching!


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Where do I start? Michelle! Good luck at the appointment and fingers crossed daughter gets the job at Meriter. Part time sounds good at this point in her life.

Killer and I both bundled up for his walk today. My ankle was okay so we were able to take the longer route and he really enjoyed it but we were both happy to get back in the warm house and divest of all the extra clothes. He is napping now.

Sally, your mom's comment reminds me of when we really had to put Mom in the nursing home and one of the staff asked her how she liked it and she said "I feel safe". I'm sure it felt good to her to not have to worry about anything and just relax and "be" and be taken care of.

DH left the house this morning saying he had lots of errands because it was too cold to go out lately??? I didn't notice anything about his schedule to be different. He did stay home yesterday, but he was gone most of Monday. Whatever. I am going to work on my cross stitch project.

Well -- at 9:30 .. that's alittle much but IT WAS SOOOO GOOD !!! and well -- I'm suffering for it this morning .. lol lol .. but IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD !!!! lol lol lol

We got home, and hubby is off with his Wii bowling games, and I'm just doing laundry, and pushing myself to go upstairs and work a bit more on my playroom .. I played with my toy and figured out a couple more of the buttons .. Now I just need my critters to come back so I can play with them !!! lol lol

So -- wishing everyone a great day !!! I'm going to !!! :)

Slept better last night until about 2, when a sharp pain woke me up. Went to work and talked to my boss about leaving work early and coming back. I really don’t want to wait another three weeks. Called the scheduling department and they had an opening tomorrow! So, I’ll drive to Wausau from work in the morning, then finish out my day. More squeaks from this Mouse!!!!!

My daughter has an interview for an entry level job at Meriter hospital in Madison tomorrow. It’s only part time, but is reall excited about getting her foot in the door.

Calling for some cold weather tomorrow! emoticon

Sally, congrats on picking up your $300. Nice camera. I like that you picked one similar to one you already knew you liked.

I am overdue for a haircut. I thought about getting one before our Overture tickets on this Saturday, but will schedule one for the next play. If I could get through the holidays without doing my hair, I can go to a play.
My dog walker has a 24 hour bug so I told her not to come until Friday. I hear that you are still contagious for a few days after symptoms end.

Hope you can handle actual winter weather after whatever that was. Our snow is pretty much gone and that inch of rain really did a number on it. It is what it is. Stay well.

Good morning to my friends !!! :)

Saw mom yesterday, and well -- she looked wiped again ...

I had a busy day yesterday, and picked up some veggies so I could make up some "premade" egg mix .. for burritos .. that way I can just warm up a cup and make up a burrito .. this way I can get a healthy meal fast .. :) I planned on cooking it up yesterday, but mom threw in a road block, and she was more important ..

After I finished with mom, I took some $$ and stopped at Best Buy .. and picked up the first of my "presents" .. I picked up my December work money .. :) and now I know how much I have to spend on my "self presents" .. :) ...



It's not that much different than my old Canon 35MM camera I used to have .. That got messed up in the furnace fire we had in our old house .. and hubby tried to have it cleaned, but it was never the same .. :( .. Now I have a new toy and it has lots of buttons for me to play with !!!! :)

Tonight hubby is taking me for an overnighter, and we're just taking a relaxing ride downtown; stopping for lunch/dinner and then getting our "olfart" money .. and coming back home tomorrow .. :)

So -- I'm wishing everyone a great day .. :) and will talk again later !!!! :)

Michelle: glad that the Dr. interceded for you and got approval for your MRI. It can be maddening.

Initially the insurance company denied my request for knee replacement! My surgeon was absolutely livid. He called the medical director of the ins. co. and had all of a 2 minute discussion w/him, which ended up I was cleared for surgery. Such nonesense.

Wishing you luck, Michelle. You have got to get on the road to health already! IT'S TIME. You've battled this for so long.

Rough night sleep. All I did was listen to my head throbbing. I think I finally fell asleep around 2.

Called the Dr again this morning. The Dr was talking to my insurance company at the same time. I was denied for the MRA, but theMRI is finally scheduled for the 25th. Finally!! The squeaky mouse gets the cheese!!! I was not giving up.

Ordered Subway for dinner, and heading to bed early. I am wiped!

Tomorrow, I have physical therapy for that tense muscle in my neck. I’m not so sure it’s still needed, but we’ll see what they have to say.

Hope the roads are better tomorrow. This morning’s commute was awful with ice under the rain.....

Hi Everyone!

We went and saw the new Clint Eastwood movie last night, it was very good. And miracle of miracles, I didn't have any of the fella's popcorn! I had some mixed nuts I brought and a bottle of water instead.

Of course, we didn't get home until after midnight and then I couldn't get to sleep for hours. What sleep I finally got before work wasn't that good. I did sleep well the two nights prior, which I'm thankful for. Before I got fibro I used to sleep pretty well at night, but not so much anymore. C'est la vie.

Sally--Glad that today was a good one for you!

Phyllis--I had to take my tree and decorations down early this year--the tree was right in front of the elliptical machine and I wanted to work out, lol! You'll get there, a little bit at a time adds up!

Michelle--I hope you are able to get some answers from the tests, once you navigate the insurance company stuff. Glad you had a good time at the holiday party!

Craz-- I can't believe the weather lately! It feels like the end of winter, not the beginning. Enjoy getting your hair cut on Wednesday! I always love going to the salon, especially if they wash my hair before cutting it. It just feels so good.

I think I'm going to grab a quick nap before it gets too late. Hopefully if I keep it short, it won't mess up my sleep too much tonight. Talk to you all later!

My nails are all perrrrdy again, and I got my money from work, and I think I can get all of my toys I want to get ...

I made an appointment for Beauty to get her sinuses cleaned out for Thursday morning. Her passenger side windshield washer works fine but the drivers side is just a trickle .... The critters probably got some birdseed in the tubing.

I got home and mom called that she needs her perscriptions ... so I told her after Im done with lunch I will be over to get them ... shes geeling good ... and the side effects are easing up ...woohoo!!

I tossed in a load of laundry since hubby is going to be home, and bought my food ... I WAS going to cook it up this afternoon but guess not ...lol

But feel good today. .. hope everyones day is going good as well.

Barb, I envy you having the decorations down. I should be doing that now while DH is exercising. I have been doing a little at a time and I think I can undo the lights he put up. IT looks like the rain may have stopped.

Michelle, prayers. On top of the frustration of the headaches, to have the frustration of dealing with insurance requirements. Argh! Hoping you get relief SOON!
