Hi ladies -

Home from work yesterday and today. Nice to relax...but since I'm a contract employee and don't have sick days, I don't get paid when I don't work. I was really tired all day today, when all I did was laundry and changing the bedding. A friend of mine said I might just be tired because my body is fighting off the nasty eye infection which has gotten a little better. It's not nearly as painful and now my eye is only half-swollen shut rather than 75% or more. Tomorrow will be even more relaxing....I have two errands to run and that's it. D may come over later in the evening. I need to go to a friend's house to drop off their tickets for a concert we're going to together on Sunday. That way if they don't want to get there as early as D and I do, we can save spots for them on the lawn (it's general admission seating).

Annie - I'm so glad to hear that Sissy is doing well!

Laura - Have a great time at the Halloween party!

Happy - I hope the dentist appt went well and without too much discomfort.

Ceejay - That's gross, and just plain lazy, with the guys not putting their trash out. I hope your diverticulitis eases up soon. My step-brother has that.

Shad - When do you start your new assignment...or have you already.

Gonna sign off for now...Hopefully I'll be able to fall asleep.

Much love,

Hi Everyone! It was one crazy work week for me and I'm still behind. I'm also behind at home. I have this house to clean, groceries to buy (DH has said he will do that for me--I see cookies and sweets in that cart! YIKES!!)

I am so tempted to work this weekend but I have told myself I'm tending to my own personal life this weekend and if I get it done I might peak at my work computer.

This coming week my DH has a doctor appointment with his cardiologist. He had a bout with afib over a year ago. He did the cardio conversion and it went back into rhythm, we checked it every 3 months for a year and he stayed in rhythm. He went for his annual physical at beginning of October and he is back out of rhythm, so back to the cardiologist we go. He had a lot of tests when they first found the afib and didn't find any blockages or anything else wrong; it's just electrical as they say. So we will see what they will do next. It's always something!

I stayed the same at my TOPS weigh-in on Thursday. I will take it, as I wasn't good at logging my food and I only got one walk in for the week. This week (starting today), I'm on top of it. We don't have a meeting this coming Thursday due to Trick or Treat night in our town, so I want to be very aware of my eating and exercising so that the next week I can have a good loss. I have not really been giving this "losing weight" thing my best attention and I am starting to not feel good nor am I happy when I look in the mirror and it's hard to find cute clothes and the ones I have are tighter. Time to buckle down!

Michelle: How is your eye doing?

Annie: That was a beautiful dream you had

Laura: I'm glad to hear the bladder has settled down a bit. You talked about a fitbit. I want one too! It is on my Christmas wish list...right at the top!

Happy: I'm sorry to hear that you were feeling so badly.

Shad: You mentioned you had been reading. What sort of books do you like to read? I'm a reader to. I'm a fiction reader.

Have a great day everyone. I need to get moving!

Morning all,

Survived the dentist - actually he was really nice and gave me lots of Novocain. Good thing because he had to do a lot of work on the tooth - not sure why - but after the anesthetic wore off my tooth was quite sore. As for the other broken tooth he said that just part of the porcelain fractured and I could put that off until next year if I wanted to. By the time the insurance comes back with an estimate it would run into next year anyway. I raced over to a local florist for a meeting where the 2 lovely owners are doing a pet portrait with Santa event with proceeds to the Humane Society. God bless these wonderful women who are doing almost all of the advertising and work. I was invited to lunch but didn't have enough time for a sit down lunch so just stopped at a nearby coffee shop and had a bowl of their delicious roasted red pepper soup and a pumpkin spice latte. Headed over to the thrift shop and had a nice afternoon with my former Tuesday partner. On of the other volunteers has drummed up some interest selling the dog treats at local businesses so I may help with that too.

Susie - my mom has the cardiac conversion about a year ago - it's still holding her in rhythm This year my husband had afib problems and opted for the ablation. He had not had any success with meds so had himself convinced this was not going to work but it was very successful and he is doing fine now. It's true about afib being an electrical issue - that's what I was trying to explain to DH. And even if the afib were to return after an ablation it supposedly responds better to medication to control it. Hope you can get back on track with the weight loss - I totally get how things can get in the way of our plans. What with bulky clothes and coat season on it's way, that also can make one feel bloated so I feel more motivated the end of autumn than any other time of year.

Michelle - sounds like one heckova eye infection you got there. Poor thing it sounds awful I hope it heals quickly. Bummer on the lost pay too.

Ceejay - that's not a good thing about the neighbor's trash. Do they not realize you have to pay for backyard pickup? In our case if the trash can was too big (as was ours) they will not do back of the house collection. I would not like critters and vermin crawling through the trash. Maybe they don't know any better. When we moved I left a long letter explaining to the new owners all the stuff that no one would tell you and things they didn't know. They told the realtor to tell us that they really appreciated it.

Laura - I agree with you that Michelle is more the goal setter - we can let her do our plans I have nothing against it, I think it's a valuable tool, I just got tired of it after being stuck doing very useless 5 year plans at work for years and years on end. I hope you have fun at your Halloween party. Still want to see pictures.

WHY DOES THIS WEBSITE SHRINK THE FONT ON POSTS??????????????

Annie - I have booked my plane flight - will be at Ohare on Saturday Nov 16 and will head into the city to Mom's. I'm getting a limo rather than take my chances with the cabbies - just can't believe the limo - which is just a hired car - is 2/3 the cost of my flight I can't believe you are still getting watermelon down your way. We have it here but it looks under ripe and yucky. I am looking forward to chicken salad with a dose of fresh pomegranate seeds. Can't believe Sissy is halfway through her pregnancy. Glad everything is going well Is she still nauseated?

Shad - I hope you are making progress with your very long to - do list and get everything you need to before you climb exhausted on to a plane. Do you have to buy warmer clothes too?

Sorry to be short - I have been on the computer this morning, then Mom called and we talked about the same round of subjects that we always talk about - and useless ones at that about people we can't change or do anything about I really need to get moving and get some stuff done around the house and bake up some dog treats to get rid of the box of supplies I have laying here. DH is already rearranging my cabinets which is the death knell so I need to get some things tidied up before I leave so that we can avoid a fight. I guess I have to go make him a big honey do list.

Anyway, have a good weekend everyone.

Evening,
It's been a busy day. Went back to Blytheville today to sell my Tablet to a girl at the Verizon store and then to the super Walmart there. I was looking for a vgb cable that would fit my computer to the new t.v. monitor but they were to big. The one on my security system works but would rather have the visual to the outside. The one I had for the computer doesn't fit the security system. I'm taking the t.v. monitor back. Hope I didn't throw away the sales slip.
Came back and ate pizza with B. She's working some in the store, trying to collect and I think she's sold a couple of pieces of furniture.
I bought gas also while in Blytheville. 2.98 per gallon which is the lowest I've seen it in a while.

Happy
Not sure if we have back yard service for trash pick up. It will be taken care of Monday. At least they put the pizza boxes into bags. Think the land lord should explain that to new tenants as well.
Good idea about taking the limo instead of a taxi.

Michelle
Glad your eye is better. At least you have sunday to help rest it.

More Later

Morning all,
Sitting here at the airport waiting for the plane to take me away. I can't do anymore at home. Got to the bottom of the list with only 1 thing left on it. Can get the sitter to do that.

I'm just plain tired now. Think I have been running on adrenaline for a while and now I just want to sleep. Guess you all know what I will be doing on the plane.

Trying to think of personals, but I guess I will just have to do that when I get up tomorrow. With a bit of luck that won't be 4am. Job starts on Tuesday since Monday is a public holiday. I'm staying at a hotel while I search for an apartment.

Happy Sunday girls,

I am planning on sending another cheer card to Mel on Tuesday so if any of you would like to include a personal note to her, post it and I'll include it in my letter.

Yesterday we went to dinner at an Octoberfest buffet at the casino. It was more my kind of thing than DH's. They had baked shortribs which were delicious, a German baked, Sauerbraten and a roast pork tenderloin. I did not care for the schnitzels - 3 kinds - I think because of how that is prepared it's a dish better served in a restaurant. Laying in a serving pan it tends to get dried out. They also had spinach salad, warm German potato salad, a few other hot and cold salads and a tray of deli type meats and cheeses that DH said were good. I loved the baked butternut squash they had - so much that I will have to try making it myself. They also had 2 kinds of dumplings and several kinds of sliced sausages in a sauce. I had one plate of food 2/3 veggies and the rest meat and enjoyed my dinner. It was our big meal of the day so I didn't feel bad about splurging. Afterwards I played my allotment of money - would win a bit and then lose but was able to keep enough rhythm so that I kept to my allowance and had a nice time. DH won a nice chunk on the craps table - he tried to get me to go there to build up my cash wad - which he was going to front me money - but I am not comfortable at the table games so we headed home. Had a nice evening out.

Today I have to bake dog treats - we are going to sell them at another local place in town so I agreed to help out. I also have laundry and some cooking to do as well as 2 lessons in my writing course and will start the big list of things I need to do / don't want to forget before I head down to Mom's. She is very excited that I am coming to visit - so much so that she called yesterday just to make sure I booked my flight

Shad - I'm glad you have an extra day to kind of unwind and relax a bit after so much hurrying and rushing getting ready for your next contract. Sounds like you were in quite the tizzy - I know how exhausting that can be - when you are running on adrenaline like that and you finally sit down, you won't be able to move no matter what until you body gets some rest. Take a few to relax - don't need to get run down and sick. How long is the flight between here and there?

Ceejay - geez what a hassle with the cords and electronic stuff. Hope you get it all straightened away. So your friend is working in a furniture store? I'm not sure I'd like that kind of retail job at all.

Hello to the rest of the Worldies. On with the day I suppose. Have a good one. Enjoy the light one more weekend - we change time (except for Shad and Annie) next weekend.

She's been in the furniture business for over 14 years. She went to Jonesboro to work at Ashley's home store but that didn't work out. So she' back here for awhile My aunt and I figured out that the owner of the building wants her there to keep the insurance current on the building. He's also paying for the utilities. She hasn't come out and said that but that's what we are assuming.
Yes it is still a hassle with the cords. I'm seriously thinking about getting one of those "hotspot's" with Verizon. But need to discuss that a bit more with one of the rep's. And taking back the t.v. monitor. It just didn't make the mark for me.
I'm planning on sending Mel another card soon. But tell her she's missed.

-------
Back to work today and am almost caught up and balanced with the monthly reports. Those 10 day's off was nice but my what a work load when I get back. The others do the same thing but the boss will only accept mine. The others do this only because they have to. They think that the boss will check it before he sends it in to the various places He know that mine will balance. Still have some other paper work to do but that can wait till tomorrow.

Looks like every one is having a good week end.

Good Morning Worldly Chicklets....

Wonderful weekend. Lots accomplished. Errands and shopping with Sissy on Saturday morning, then lunch at Cracker Barrell. Cleaned the house on Saturday afternoon, C came home, I had crocked a pork tendloin roast in the crocker all day with just garlic, salt, pepper, and a little butter. It was so tasty and sweet from the garlic. The house smelled like an Italian restaurant. Yesterday morning we met Sis, CHris and the babe at Waffle House for breakfast at 9 am then off to do a couple of Cs stores. Home again, watched a movie while C took a nap. Once he got up we cleared out the garden, flower bed, trimmed two trees the rose tree and the Lilac bush. Watched a couple of movies and was in bed by 9. I did try to watch a little of the world series as I live the Cards but could not stay awake.

Will come back later for personals.

Loves and hUgs

Morning All. Happy Monday.

Annie - Sounds like a busy productive weekend. I was going to trim the shrubs in the front last weekend and when I went to recharge our little electric hedge trimmer, I couldn't find the battery!! I'll have to conduct a more thorough search. I just don't know where it could be. The battery actually stays in the trimmer unit itself for charging, so it's not like it was removed for charging in a separate devise. I'm stumped. I don't think I've ever eaten roasted broccoli - I'll have to try that sometime. With garlic and olive oil, it has to be tasty!!

Ceejay - I hope you figure out the cables you need. Life is so complicated now! Gosh, way back when no one needed to figure out cable tv, internet, smart phones and all the services associated with these devices. Such a hassle, and yet it feels like we're lost without them now! Very interesting that the boss relies only on your reports!! Unfortunately, you know you'll be having to teach someone else the right way to do them when you get closer to your retirement date.

Happy - The Oktoberfest buffet sounded delicious. Yeh, I agree - the schnitzel dishes are the type of thing that should be served right when it's done being cooked, not sitting under a heat lamp. Sounds like you're going to need to prepare some big batches of dog treat dough! And now you've got your usual house tasks and your writing class AND getting ready for your trip to your mum's. Busy woman! Good luck with all that. Not surprised your mouth was sore. I think just holding the mouth open for a long dental procedure could make it sore...

Shad - How long is your assignment in NZ? Hope you find an apartment that meets your needs. Eating out gets really old - so much nicer to stock the fridge and stay comfortable in your temporary digs.

Susie - Good luck to your dh with his cardiologist visit. My bf told me he was having palpitations several times last week. Thank goodness he has his followup doctor appointment next week and will discuss it with his doc. As for our weight loss efforts - you put it very aptly - I definitely haven't been giving it the attention it deserves for quite a while. Let's buckle down this week and get back into it!!! Re the fitbit - I tend to hoard my gift cards, and I have at least one Visa gift card - from last Christmas - sitting around that I can use to buy a fitbit. And I'd like to buy some new workout duds as well. That would be motivating for me!!

Michelle - How's your eye doing? I hope it's well on its way back to normal. And is Santa headed back to doggy daycare today? Sure hope so! How was the concert?
==
Weekend recap:

Friday bf and I went over to the gym for a short workout. He showed me around first, and then we did a short stint on the spin bikes, then some time on the rowing machine, then the ab area for a few sets on a machine, a plank, and then situps with a weighted ball in which you toss it to your partner when you're at the top, he tosses it back and back down you go. Not a fan of situps...but weighted crunches sound like a good idea, especially if it means you can decrease the reps! Anyway, the facility is very nice. Have to get used to the gym atmosphere again, but I like that there seems to be a good mix of ages and "types".

Saturday morning I headed to a class at the gym. For some reason I was looking at the Sunday schedule, but luckily the start time was the same and I went to a class. It was Zumba and not the Step plus Abs class I erroneously thought it would be, but what a good Zumba class it was! A popular class with a lot of attendees, so I'll have to remember to get there early for a good spot somewhere in the middle. There's no raised platform for the instructor, so it was tough at times to see her from my spot in the back. I would go back to that class for sure. So far, so good.

After class and showering, I worked a bit more on tidying up the costumes and making some final touches to them. I did some laundry and then we went for a quick lunch and then to pick up a few groceries. I took doggy for a walk, and in the meantime, bf mixed up the filling for the tortilla rollups I'd decided to bring to the party that night.

I spread the filling on the tortillas and rolled them up while bf showered, and then we were on our way.

The party was fun and I was glad to see everybody and meet my friend's new bf - happy to report he seems like a great guy. The rollups were a hit - I'd last made them over 3 years ago and I'd forgotten how tasty they are. (The filling is a blend of sour cream, cream cheese, some fiesta ranch dressing mix, diced chilies, chunky salsa and shredded cheddar cheese.)

There was a bit of drama with my friend's grown stepdaughter, who is not accepting of the fact that her stepmom is moving on with her life after the passing of her hubby 3+ years ago. Ridiculous - part of it was too much booze, but she's also prone to drama and a short fuse. I'm actually sad to see that she and her hub, who had been separated for quite a while, are trying to get back together. She's just not a mentally healthy person, and her priorities are not in the right place. I feel really sad that her daughters are under her influence...but maybe it'll be a good thing if their dad is back to being a full-time presence in their lives. The dad has his issues, but fortunately is not toxic like the mom. Ultimately, I just hope they do what's best for their daughters.

After the drama, the stepd. and hub left the party, and then my friend (who was angry and had asked the step to leave) proceeded to overindulge. It was late by then and we were at the point of taking our leave anyway, as were a few others, so we helped get the food put away and then left. My poor friend paid the price for her overindulgence that night and yesterday. It's a rarity for any of us to do that these days - we all know we'll just feel lousy. Totally not worth it!! Anyway, I'll try to remember to get bf to send me the pics of us in our costumes and post one tomorrow.

Yesterday I was up early in spite of the late night, bleh. I lazed around with the newspaper all morning and then met my friend B for lunch. We both had breakfast for lunch and had a good chat.

After that I subjected myself to two hours of shopping at Kohl's and ended up with two tops and one pair of pants. No luck finding a pair of decent charcoal gray dress slacks, but I did find a pair of charcoal gray chino-type casual pants (Lee brand) that will stand in alright until I find the dress slacks. I'm at the point where I can fit into a size smaller than I currently am wearing, but the fit is rather clingy and snug and I'm not a fan of that look, so maybe I'll just wait until the fit is something I'm more comfortable going beyond the dressing room in!

After that was a chat with my mum and then a dog walk. Dinner was pizza, and then some tv.

Tonight I'd like to get to another group fitness class at the gym. We'll see if bf wants to join me and do his workout while I'm in class.

Okay, I better get this posted before any more interruptions.

Cheers!

Super quick post for me. I've got two days of work to catch up on! Whee!!

My eye is getting better. Infection is still lingering. It's roughly 25% swollen, which is a great improvement. I can actually see out it (that is until I put in the antibiotic ointment). LOL

Santa is at Day care today...not his usual day care as they won't let him back in until he's checked out by their vet on Thursday...but he's at a good day care that I've used before.

The Bridge School Concert was amazing!! The Bridge School is a school for severely physically disabled and communicatively disabled children. At least one of Neil Young's sons went to this school. it's a small school without roughly 20-30 students each year, and they use technology and other methods to help these children learn to communicate. The cool thing is that the students are in chairs/wheelchairs with their parents and teachers at the back of the stage, so they get the best seat in the house for the show! It's an all acoustic concert, and is always a phenemonal show! While I mainly went because I wanted to see Heart, Elvis Costello and Diana Krall, and Crosby Stills Nash & Young, all of whom were INCREDIBLE, the other bands (Jenny Lewis, "fun", My Morning Jacket, Tom Waits, and Queens of the Stone Age) were outstanding as well. The concert started at 2 pm and ended at 10 pm! D and I had a really great time as did my friends who went with us.

I'm going to skip the gym tonight and just relax since I didn't fall asleep 'till after midnight.

I'll check back in later for personals.

Here's to a great week for all!

Much love,

Hi all,

Woke up already behind on things. Priorities are dragging me around by the neck so I join the quick posters today and hope to come back tonight.

Had to get some greeting cards out the door with DH who was off early running errands. Got an early morning call from physical therapy I have return - they probably had an early morning cancellation which is too bad because my back is killing me. I spent some time writing and on the computer yesterday - too much time in the chair. My temporary crown they just seated Friday broke yesterday when I was eating a soft Cheeto puff. Really??? They said nothing hard or sticky and that is neither. Looks like I will have to stick with soups and overdone pasta for the next 2 weeks until the permanent crown comes in. So I have lots of phone calls to make as well as it's my Mom's birthday today and try as I might, that's at least a 30 minute call.

Anyway - sorry to run, will get back after supper.

I tried to post yesterday but it seems that my money ran out before I submitted it.
I'm in Wellington, my bag is not. I am unhappy about that since it holds all my work clothes. Some brand new and unworn. I had to go out yesterday and shop for some clothes for work today. And they still haven't located the bag as of yesterday afternoon. So I think there will be another set of clothing purchased today on my way back to the hotel for work tomorrow. Fortunately I had a couple of pairs of shoes in my carry on bag - because it is very hard to find shoes to fit my feet and I end up paying heaps for them. So I have shoes and jewellery and now I have underwear, trousers, 2 shirts/ tops. Today I have to get my head around a new job and try for an apartment. I did find a couple on the net last night which I will try to get to today as well.

Better go, get showered and ready for the day. Catch you all soon.

Giving the guys next door the benefit of the doubt about their garbage. If it's not to the curb tomorrow I'll definitely call.

I'm like Michelle and trying to catch up on my work. I haven't posted anything for yesterday or today. But that's okay.

Michelle
Glad your eye is better.

Ceejay - if the guys are friendly, might explain the trash pick up starting with "perhaps you didn't realize that... ". Hope you got caught up with things. Sorry you had such a pile of work on your return but isn't that the way it is?

Shad - how frustrating that not only did you bag get lost but you had to go and replace brand new clothes you just bought. Very smart of you to carry your extra pair of shoes in you carry on, I would do the same of something I thought would not easily be replaced. And I'm sure you spend a good amount of time on your feet so comfortable shoes are a must. I do hope they find your bags and get you settled in. Not a good start to the trip at all.

Michelle - sounds like you had a nice weekend - at least attending a concert you don't need your eyes at 100 percent. Glad that the infection is clearing up. The concert must have been a lot of fun.

Annie - thank you for the roasted broccoli idea. I've had it lightly sautéed in garlic - yum, yum. This sounds like a roasted brussel sprouts recipe but with broccoli. It it's half as good - definitely a winner. Sounds like you had a very busy but productive meeting.

Laura - yum on the rollups. Sounds delicious. I'm glad you had a good workout at the gym and what luck to stumble on to a class you like. Sorry to hear that things did not go well for your friend at her party. Perhaps the stepdaughter feels like your friend is "cheating" on her dad although I think 3 years of grieving is a proper enough amount of time. So happy when I see others that I don't have certain kinds of drama in my life, right? As for the slacks isn't it annoying when you are trying to find something neutral other than black and fashion dictates there will be no more brown, gray or navy this year - only hot pink and eggplant Just keep looking around.

The rest of my temporary tooth broke off today and I was able to catch (most) of it before I swallowed it - it shattered in several chunks. I have an appointment Wednesday morning to try again. Not sure I can handle a soft diet for the next 2 weeks. We have a bed with a memory foam mattress and it has the adjustable heat and foot/leg ends. My neck was bothering me so I raised the heat and feet and slept in one position on my back. Got out of bed this morning and knew there would be trouble. My back is crunched and is killing me. I hobbled around today - no amount of hot showers, icy back rub or pain reliever helped. I'm so over this already. Tonight I am sleeping on the guest bed where I can prop myself up a bit differently and I'm hoping it helps a bit. Otherwise it will be a long day at the shop on Tuesday.

And I reviewed my list of goals that I made on my last birthday. We are 6 months down now and I have slackered on several of them. So I have a renewed focus and commitment, one if which is going to bed earlier.

So I will bid you all a good night for now.
