    Yes, I thought of that too! emoticon ...and my Part B and Advantage were finally processed (even though it took another trip down to the ss office) so that's a good thing too! Now, we'll wait to see if our first ss check gets out. I know they said ss should continue...but what if it's the first one emoticon Oh well, it seems things are going through, albeit...a bit squeaky ;)
    I saw on Janet's page you said you were still sick :( Oh no!!! It's miserable, but good you can stay home. I hope you shake it off soon. I'm desperate NOT to get sick in the next 5 weeks... emoticon
    Have a cuddly week with B&T...I have to post a pic of Lily in her Cuddle Cup...
    Hugs and head butts...

    I am glad to hear you are starting to feel better and, it probably was best to stay in for the weekend. Still, sorry your plans were disrupted.

    We had lots of weather yesterday. It reminded me of a Spring storm because the snow was so wet. Perfect snowman making weather. Not that I went out and did that. It was enough that I tried to shovel the driveway a little. Just enough to give the dogs pavement to walk on before they get to the yard. The snow was way too heavy for me to do much with it. I'm so thankful for my neighbor who cleared the snow for me. It snowed enough overnight that it needs to be shoveled again so I may wind up staying in today too.

    The winter reading program at the library started Sunday and I'd like to get there to pick up the materials. It doesn't matter when you start or how much you do. I just started a Janet Evanovich novel. I've never read her before. She definitely has a sense of humor.

    Head butts, tail wags and hugs!!

    Charlie and boots have never gone together, no matter how hard I've tried. Charlie is a very stubborn and hard headed dog. It's the breed and I have always been extremely thankful to his previous owner for at least making him somewhat polite. How then he wound up alone in a woods and no one to claim him is beyond me but I appreciate the training Charlie did have. He has never been the best leash walker though. If we come to an intersection, Charlie has always pulled, and pulled hard, to go in the direction leading him home. Stinker. Good thing he lives to eat so treats work very well with him.

    Did you feel well enough to go out with friends last night?

    OMGoodness...that's what I was going to come over and ask you today... Basically, are we sc==ed if the Gov't shuts down? I know...it really makes me so mad...like you said, whichever side you're on. And clearly, no one is on ours! I sure hope my Medicare Part B gets processed before the idiots decide to take another extended leave...oh sorry, meant before they go on strike...oh, shutdown emoticon emoticon

    Lily does stay up past her afternoon bedtime/nap if I'm around much on the weekend. I'm sure just as she gets used to me being around, I'll figure out which charities I want to really devote myself to and then I'm out of the house again. I hope it's not too long after retirement because I'll get fat and lazy and way too used to it!

    I'm sure she'll be like B&T and take it all in stride. Once she sees I'm there too much, she'll just want me out of her chair and won't care much at all!
    OK, back to work...hahahah, won't say that much longer :) 41 days to go emoticon
    PS: Just read on Janet's page about your cold...I'm a terrible friend :( I forgot all about it. Hope you're getting over it and enjoying not needing to go into work with it! Feel better! emoticon I think this is supposed to be soup!

    I am feeling fairly good yet. I love lemon zinger tea though I also enjoy a cup of green tea too. Love having the honey in it. I am a coffee drinker as well though, since my surgery, I have not been enjoying it as much. That and yogurt, especially Greek, have just lost their taste to me.

    Charlie's feet are my nemesis. Charlie is a dog with allergies and they are bad. His allergies come out in his ears, skin and feet. We did allergy shots for several years, give him a prescription medication, feed him a special food and give him several doses of fish oil daily. His ears and skin have become manageable but the feet still give trouble. He gets irritated, starts to lick which causes more irritation and the cycle begins. A two week course of antibiotics, maybe repeated, and soaking help but the older he gets the harder it gets to clear it. Charlie had managed to stay out of the vet's office for four months which is unheard of for him. I think it's because he wasn't being walked so he wasn't going around picking up allergens. Poor guy hates the vet even though they do all they can to make him comfortable. They had mats all around for him so he wouldn't fall and helped me handle him in and out of the exam room and back into the car. So thankful for their kindness.

    Are you celebrating extra much right now? The advent of the new semester and being able to stay home is definitely cause for celebration. emoticon
