Good Morning!

Trig- Holy smokes when it rains for you! I don't blame ya on being pissed with the kiddo for "hiding" the issue with the car. Then a hit and run- OMG. Damage or not that is a NO NO and finable. This you know. I am glad you are working through this with her. Could you "take away" the car for a minute? I guess she is too old to ground to her room! LOLOLOLOL

My kids would have had the keys taken on that one AND BEEN REEMED!!!!! Best learn consequences through the love of parents than the big bad world. HUGS to you momma bear!!!!
I am curious what the CHOP thinks of it all.........

Girl... I hate that you pulled your leg again. REST it up and be gentle with yourself.

Lori- Yay on chasing that little ball around! Today is stellar here too! Finally some sun. But still so wet!
Any plans this weekend?

Nic- You relaxing beach side?
------------------------------------------------------------------

I started this and then walked away! Goodness, I feel scattered today! So today is IT for the job. I am getting paid though through the 24.

The interview yesterday went well. That being said I had knots in my stomach and was really anxious when they were describing the job. The bottom line they are understaffed, worked to the bone and desperate. I also learned that it includes weeks ends, and holidays. The caseload is off the chart and totally unreasonable. I was sitting there thinking and smiling as she was talking "THIS IS THE REASON IS NEVER WANT TO GO BACK TO THE HOSPITAL".

I boxed up my office equipment they sent and am taking it to FedEx this morning to send back.

Dental appointment at 2pm for crown fitting and temp cap placement.

Then watching both kids play softball/baseball for last games.

I am down to the FINAL pound to lose to get to the low baseline. Feeling better. It can keep on going down!

I am now in "FREEFALL", and it is scary and exciting and all that at the same time.

Till later!

Good Morning!

Same sh!t, different day! Rain tomorrow, so we'll take advantage of today. I'll tell you....I'm a tired pup when I get home from a round of golf. I'm getting old! I do walk a lot and having a couple beers makes me tired too....but come on! Sigh......

Nothing exciting going on here.....what are you guys up to?

Good FRIDAY Morning! TGIF!

We are slated for RAIN today! What a wet Spring! I am puttering for the most part today. I have one errand to get some boxed chocolates for my mom. (Yeah she eats that garbage).
Other than that, I am doing laundry and working on my NEXT. I am still working on my office setup. I ended up with 2 large monitors and the printer and shredder the company didn't want back. They said it cost more to ship back than worth. They told me to keep them! OKAY then!!!
I sent back the laptop and phone. I got to keep the standing desk too. Happy about all that.

Been doing some thinking about that 2 day a week hospital gig. I MIGHT consider it depending on the $$$$. I can do anything for 2 days. I will have to pick up something else as well. But it will offer benefits which are unheard of really for two days a week. I am not digging the work..... but again 2 days! LOL
I should hear something today.

I am going to Atl. Tomorrow for the weekend. Go Saturday- back Sunday. QUICK Trip. Boundaries..... and all.

Lori- I get tired. Goodness, you are just the energizer bunny. You have always been the most workout and energic of us. I can see how you get tired. I couldn't do all that walking day after day on the course. I would be in the cart! LOLOLOL

What are ya doing this weekend? Are ya done with your dumpster?

Nic/Trig-
Hiya!
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Well time for my last cup of coffee. Burgers today. No blue skies today. It looks gray and ready to pour.

Well I need to pry myself outta this chair and get productive! LOL

Waiting to hear from ya'll

Good Morning!

Lazy day! Raining and just dreary. DH is bored so he'll go to the grocery store with me later. I'm just planning to putter around the house and do some cleaning today. I'll figure something out for dinner for DH....I have some leftover protein in the fridge that will suffice for me.

Jaz......Safe travels to visit your Mom. I hope it goes well. A 2 day a week job sounds good for a bridge to your NEXT.

Trig and Nic.....what's happening?

I have to go figure out what I'm having for breakfast. I really need to eat some eggs, but some days I just can't face them. Weird.

Later!

Good Morning!

After a rainy day yesterday, we have a couple dry days to look forward to. I'm heading to the golf course...big surprise!

Yesterday morning, DH was reading the newspaper(yes, we still get a paper!) and he told me that my first boyfriend had died. I hadn't seen him for nearly 40 years, but it has still hit me like a ton of bricks. He was a year younger than me. We spent the end of our teen years together and then got back together a couple years later for a short time. It's just hard for me to believe. I don't know what happened, but I suspect cancer as it said in the obit that he died peacefully at the hospital. I guess you never really get over your first love. I was happy to read that he had 3 kids, several grandkids and a long time companion. I feel badly for his Mother who is still living. She has got to be well into her 80's, but no one should have to bury their child, even if he was 63 years old. Life can be SO hard.

--------

Trig....I'm sorry to hear that your sciatica is still giving you fits. So painful! Take it easy as much as you can.

Jaz....Hope things are going well at Mom's. I know you'll be glad to hit the road to come home.

Nic......How is DE?

--------

Just about time to pull myself together. Enjoy your Sunday!

Good Sunday Morning!

Lori- Goodness, I don't know if it is ever easy hearing about someone we grew up with passed away! Something about it is a gut-kick. It is not easy getting older!

Glad you are able to get out today and case your little white ball!!!!!!

PS I am shocked you get a newspaper! Do they still print those anymore?!?!?!?!? LOLOL

Trig- Glad you are doing better. Back pain, back pain is SUCH A PAIN! Mushy mushy mushy here too! We had big time rain here last night too!
Needing some sun!

How is kiddo doing? Settling into her summer?

Nic- What's up in DE?!? -Is hubby going to meet you there?
-----------------------------------------------------------=

I am SO frekin ready to get home. However, I need to assist my mom on a few things here before I take off.
I don't "see" stuff that is actually going on here unless I lay eyes on it.
Ya know when you look down the train tack and see a train coming at you full tilt, it is daunting. That is how I am describing this way it is going to go down for my mother and her husband. I tolerate him. I am so glad I don't live in the same state. It is going to be a wreck in the not too far distance! SIGHHHHHHHHHH
We all have had to deal with the oldies haven't we?!?!?!?!?

I am 100% one WOE.
Steak last night and burgers tonight.

I can't wait to get home. A few days of solace!

I am grateful for my furbaby at my side - literally.

I will check in tomorrow.

Good Morning!

Another day, another round of golf. It's supposed to be in the 80's today, just like yesterday. This afternoon I have a massage to look forward to....can't wait.

I have no idea what I'll eat today. I have leftover pizza and wings for DH, but I'll probably end up with eggs or a protein shake. Boring. I need to do some meal planning, but who has time???

Jaz.....Safe travels home.

Trig.....How's your "butt"? I know it's not funny. Sure hope it's getting better.

Nic.....Thanks for checking in! Glad you're having fun!

More coffee......we got up too early.

Lori I so understand your feelings about someone passing way that was on your timeline and part of your past. The paper? yea like Jazz I am asking are they still printing them HA Our local paper was like 6 pages, ohh we were rocking the news, now it is like 2 pages, lol. I actually am shocked it hasn't disappeared yet.

Keep up the protein

Nicco, girl you are busy busy as usual. I guess playing Pass the Baby is time consuming LOL

Jazz, yes the oldies, we all gotta deal as we gotta deal. It isn't easy at all. Holding zc 100% is great. You feeling back to zc normal?

--------SO ALL going better with stupid sciatica. Still got some weirdo butt/into leg/into knee pain but way less. Again tho still be super duper careful on how I walk, move, twist and more. Even doing that tho is starting to drive me batty LOL I need now to move a full tilt and not think about my every darn movement but right now I need to keep babying that movement to keep from going backward. So far so good tho on improvement. Mood feels better now too on it all.

Holding zc 100% tight as heck and feeling fab.

I am still playing catchup with chores tho. Hubby put together the new ceiling fan I bought for living room and wow it is nice. Remote! my first remote controlled ceiling fan and I love love love it So when I gotta replace any other ones in the house they will be a remote model also. No more pulling chains HA

ok be good, off to get life handled a bit around here.
