Hi chicks,

I'm just breezing through this morning. Still having issues with the glucophage so I'm spending more time in the loo and less in front of the computer.

I will try and get back at lunch time.

Quickie report just to say that Hershey definitely has Cushings, the treatable kind. Whew! I am much relieved and am now able to get on with life without constant nagging worry about my darling girl. It'll take a while for her to get back into full furry plumage so I'm posting a picture to remind me of how gorgeous she really is.

Happy Wednesday everyone! And Happy Birthday Ceejay!

I didn't get to the gym last night as my back/legs were sore. But I did do my stretches and felt a bit better. I stretched this morning too...and in an hour or so I'll be going to PT. The company I work for has a "Wellness Center" down the street for employees, complete with a doctor, nurses, lab techs, physical therapy and pharmacy. It's very convenient to go to an appointment during the work day. I really want to go back to the gym ASAP...but my body keeps reminding me that I have to take it slowly. Aaargh. Have I mentioned I'm not a patient person!

Mel - Okay, I get it. I'll take it slowly...no need to threaten me with a smack upside my head. Enjoy your day off and relax.

Happy - I hope your body adjusts to the Glucophage soon so you can spend less time in the loo.

Ruth - Hershey sure is gorgeous! And since her Cushings is treatable, she'll get back to full furriness before too long. Big to you both.

A big to Shad, Rennie, Madcat, Annie and everyone else. I hope you are all having a good day.

Gotta get more work done before PT. I'll try and check in later.

Hugs,

Happy Hump Day!!

Happy Happy Birthday to Ceejay!!! I would sing for you but everyone would wonder where all the screeching was coming from.

Michelle...do come to the ice cream party this afternoon. I would love to meet you in person, well I would love to meet all you great ladies in person. The party is at 3:00pm in conference room 2F. See you there. We also play all those games you mentioned here in Hoosier land. Must be a country sticks thing.

Ruth...thank God Hershey is treatable and will get better.

MEL...got rid of the fairy, it was time. I guess I am fairyless.

Madcat...don't work too hard, wow, two offices, that must make you nuts.

Happy...huh, what did you say....hehehehe

Hidee Ho to all I missed.

Love and Hugs

Annie

All about me – you can skip to the next post if you like…

Well okey dokey. A yippee and a rant from me today. First the yippee. Yesterday we got our blood glucose testing meters from the program I’m in now. And they gave us the GOOD ones! Actually I was impatient and bought the same one on Sunday. I thought it odd that the one I bought had no supplies to it and I went back on Monday night and complained to the pharmacist as I stocked up. Then I get the same one last night and it’s got a week’s starter supply of the 3 things I should have gotten in the first one! So it’s kind of obvious someone bought it, used it and carefully resealed and returned it. Dirty dogs!!!! But along with our meter we got a copy of our fasting blood test results. My fasting glucose was 85 – NORMAL!!!!! (It’s been reading 99 to 104 at the doctors office which I attribute to the 1 cup of coffee I had in the morning and the wonders of the glucophage even tho it is making me retchedly sick for a few hours practically every morning.). And my cholesterol was 233 at the doctor’s office 2nd week in July and was 191 with a true fasting test. Just enough under 200 to be NORMAL!!!! And I tested my blood sugar 2 hours after I ate a slightly carby Chinese meal and it was 104 – still good. So… I’m not deaf, I’m finally exercising again, my blood work is looking good – what more can a girl ask for?

Now for my rant. We have a new cook in the cafeteria. He also works at a local restaurant and I have to say the quality of the cafeteria food has risen up mucho notches (not to be confused with Buenos noches ) since Mr. K has come on board. However, at least down in the south here there seems to be a heavy influence of spicy flavors in all the restaurants. My tummy is jazzy enough lately without more speecy spicy in it. So today’s option was Chef Wang’s Sweet and Sour Chicken. Bits of chicken, lots of bright veggies. I asked K if it was spicy. No ‘mam he says. So I get an order. Get back to my desk, take a bite, it is yum yum good. 30 seconds later – FIRE IN THE HOLE!!! OMG – I look at the container and there are bits of red pepper flakes liberally laced all over. So, what party of no ‘mam this isn’t spicy does this apply to???? I debated about walking back to the cafeteria and returning it all but then my only other option would have been a cheeseburger or cream of broccoli soup. So I ate the chicken with a Pepcid chaser. Maybe I should go and get some milk.

Stay tuned, I'm working on the all about you post...

Drat Annie! I've got a meeting at 3 pm, otherwise you know I'd be there.

I just had my 2nd PT session. Oh my! No massage or anything today...(hopefully that will come tomorrow). Today was teaching me how to do a circuit of core/resistance exercises, and she worked me hard. My back didn't get sore...and I did get a workout, which was great. Now if I go to the gym tonight, I'll only need to do cardio because I did more than enough resistance training.

I brought comfy knit shorts to change into - thinking it would be more manipulation. I'm glad I did...I wouldn't have been able to do all those exercises in my work slacks. I just wish I brought a t-shirt...as I perspired a bit - and I have two meetings this afternoon.

Anyway, gotta get some work done.

Talk to you chicks later!

Annie – my durn badge won’t let me into your office. Can you just bring me a plain scoop of vanilla out the back door? Are you on CST or EST time zone? Thanks for explaining corn hole – makes sense. I thought they used dried feed corn as well as dried peas in the burlap for the sacks. Haven’t played that in ages. Have fun!

Michelle – wow that on campus Wellness Center sounds great. It’s convenient AND it keeps you in the office longer not sitting out and about waiting on the docs – think the company factored that into the equation? Anyway I think it’s a great perk. Geez girl, sounds like you really tied yourself in a knot there. Can you swim for a while or don’t they have a pool at your gym? One way to get the cardio without stressing the back much. I’m sure even the recumbent bike would hurt and you certainly don’t want any unnecessary jostling around. How nice to have a 3 day weekend to look forward to. Make sure you do something enjoyable.

Ruth – I’m sorry to hear about Hershey but at least it’s treatable. She looks so soft.

Hey Mel – wanna play “fill my piehole” with me - Sssshhh don’t tell anyone but there is a vast food wasteland between New York and Chicago. At least I’ve never heard of Cleveland or Philly touted for their exceptional Chinese food. Michelle and I will hop the Amtrak over to you, how’s that? We’ll get her one of those reclining seats so she can be comfy and I’ll just stand with my face pressed against the window ooggling all the cows cuz there isn’t much of anything to see for most of the trip heading east. If we can time this around the New England fall colors, it would be most appreciated. DH is originally from Rhode Island and can you believe we’ve never seen a New England autumn?

Ceejay – hope you are having a great birthday and not working today. If Annie and I both screetch at the same time you are perfectly positioned to hear us in stereo

Madcat – the only time I ventured out of the U.S. was when I went to Toronto. Oh wait, I guess Victoria B.C. counts too Anyway I agree with you, I was impressed with the city – nice, clean and I felt safe walking around. You get winters but not like Montreal or up there in the sticks by Ruth. And you don’t have to know French to get around Do you get the pretty fall leaf colors too? Funny that you talk about the dual monitor set up. My cube mate has the same thing and she just loves the 2 monitor deal. I’m holding out for the flat screen, wide aspect, takes up a cube wall monitors

Poor Shad – lost and buried in the training mess. 2 things they never spend enough time on and always trim to meet their implementation deadlines are training and end user reports. I sat through some training myself and while the team was enthusiastic and committed, it was obvious they were kept in the dark about a lot of the last minute changes. Hope you are keeping your sanity – it’s a tough job you have there.

Lunch is over, time to punch back in. Later kids…

Hey Happy - Yes, my pool does have a gym....but something about the chlorine or whatever chemicals makes me get winded doing laps faster than on a treddie or bike.

I'll find something to do tonight at the gym, and yes, Mel, I will take it slow.

As for the Wellness Center, yes, it's a win-win situation....It's affordable and convenient for employees and the company likes that employees aren't away from the office for hours traveling to and from the doctor's office. They only do basic exams and treatment there, no specialists or anything, but having PT so close by is really nice.

Just popped in to say hello. Happy birthday Cee. Bella is now all better. A little tomato juice and a little scotch fixed her right up. In her bath not in her water bowl lol. Sure glad Hershey is going to be ok.

Puff, puff, puff.
Just running in to say hello and out again. Maybe next week we will be able to chat again. Up to my ears with last minute things now, not mention dragging some clinging Indonesians around and trying to calm the fears. Sure is a scary monster this SAP.

2 workdays and 2 weekend days to 'go-live' and no everything is not finished, they are not trained to perfection, they are not ready, they are panicking - it's like the entire world just fell in down here. I think I am the only one who is not developing an ulcer or becoming paranoid. I can't do much more, because there is nothing ready for me to train until tomorrow, and I am developing some data for that today. I'm also getting ready to work with the intranet mob to get our documentation up into Knowledge Warehouse. So I am chatting in Australian with Adelaide, trying to make sense in Bahasa and having a hard time understanding the Pretorian South African accent. Not to mention a Kiwi or two thrown in and the BIG Cheese is Irish. No wonder I am going deaf.

Ruth, glad Hershey is treatable, it won't be long before she is back to her normal self. However she will probably shed hair for the rest of her days. Shad left huge deposits of the stuff around but never actually went bald.

Happy - good going on the medical side. Bit more effort and you will see and feel the difference. Those minutes are all adding up. Well done.

Ceejay - arty: :HB: for a happy birthday. Sorry if it is late but you really shouldn't have a birthday when we are at the go-live stage.

Mel - take care of that arm. No point in having 2 out of commission. Need one to feed yourself that chinese dinner you and happy and michelle are contemplating. You should just rock up at Ceejays and get her to do it for you. Durn it I might even get there myself.

Gotta go. Too much to do, too little time. Sorry for those I've missed. Blowing kisses your way instead

And Ceejay - get out there and party. You need some ME time.

Good morning ladies,

Guess I'm the first one up here. Must be we're going to get some weather here. Got enough sleep last night but feel like I could still sleep 2 more hours. My first thought this morning (before the alarm went off) was ... it is Saturday yet? We are all sleepy here today - even the cat!

Shad, I am starting to think that utter chaos is the norm for every go live. People panicing and running about. I'm not sure when the next version is going through, only that it's next month which could be next week for all I know. Probably as they do tend to schedule things around the holidays and since it's the start of a new month that is usual optimal time for scheduling an install. People here too are hurrying through the halls, serious looks and notebooks in hand. They will bump you against the walls if you don't scurry out of the way. I'm late, I'm late - reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.

Anyway good luck to you. Sounds like you are the only calm one in the place. We will hold your spot while you organize and reassure the masses

Good to hear that Bella is a bit less of a little stinker Shy.

No word from Ceejay - must have been a good birthday.

I don't feel Mel and Michelle typing above my head this morning Must have slept in - NOT.

Annie is still running around saying - no thanks, I don't WANT ANY ICE CREAM THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Madcat is getting dizzy looking at 2 monitors at once

Ruth is reigning them in on the South Beach board

And Carla is wondering if her incisions will ever stop itching.

All is normal in our little world.

And I'm off to work. See yah...

Ah so Mel must have been in stealth mode because she was above my head after all. You're getting good Mel

I know what you mean about happy and meloncholy at the same time about the leaves *big sigh* We're getting more leaves in the pool too - I thought the same last weekend. We're about 3 months out for the colors though - ours just start to turn around Halloween. So right now it's schmutz leaves.

I too read Shad's comments about trying to speak and listen in tongues and I was lost too. I have a hard enough time with the Indian and South African accents and they are trying to do English. Shad is a much more cosmopolitan woman than we will ever be
