Today the last day of the year I had my 3 month follow up. A1c is still a challenge for me. All other tests were normal. I'm being diagnosed with bursites in hips. Will be having physical therapy for the exercises and then work from there. This is pretty painful. My Dr. suggested i have a Hepatitis B vaccine and I refused.

Happy New year!

Sunny, 41F, Feels Like: 38F, high near 50F

New Year's Eve is when all the fun and festivities are. We see out the old year and ring in the new. While it is often thought of as a time to drink and be merry, many people take it as an opportunity to eat and be merry. Drinking is not as much a part of the event as it was decades ago, if only because of tougher drunk driving laws.

New Years' Day on the other hand, is a time to relax and enjoy the start of a bright and promising new year....a new beginning. It is a time to be with family.

So, enjoy everything about New Year's....it only comes once a year.

We are going to a party at church tonight. It starts at 8 pm, going until midnight. Don't know if we will stay the whole time as DW is usually in bed at 9!

How ever you choose to celebrate, have a safe New Year's Eve.

After a chilly start, it managed to get up to 51 this afternoon.

My wife and I come from two different traditions. I grew up with the decorations coming down after the first of the year. She grew up with them coming down the day after Christmas. Guess which tradition we observe!

65. for today's high. Currently Partly Cloudy 52

Managed to work 25 hours this week. This is my final week to draw unemployment. Now it's time to budget and cut back, or I could follow our governments example of borrow and spend with a promise to repay somehow.

Mist And Fog, 39F, Feels Like: 37F, looking for a high near 57.

It's 9 am, and I have to be at work at 11 am. No phone call yet, so I will get to work a few hours anyway.
Hope everyone stays warm and safe.

52 for the high today.

Christmas decorations taken down until next year. Working between 4-6 hours the next few days. Just enough hours that we can't go anywhere. I will probably get a phone call telling me not to come in.

This was the 2nd time in 2 months he has broken 2 different ribs. He wasn't fully healed from the lst one. I hear a lot of moaning and groaning. No one to take me and leone out for our evening walk last night so i asked for the car keys. (everyone else was drunk. He refused pain pills like vicodin/percocet from the hospital. So he relied on Margaritas. It did help. So when i demanded the car keys then i got yelled at cuz I'm blind. Literally. So, I went alone walking her in my neighborhood in the dark and we got chased by cats.

Rest and relaxation? not a chance i'm in charge of the housecleaning and cooking now. Plus i'm doing what I love best. SHOPPING.

Poor Robert! I guess he cannot tank you for all the times you fell or tripped.. He has two good peepers and still fell.
Maybe he would feel better if he soaked in a tub of warm epsom salts water?

If he gets sassy with you Deb, hand him Leone's leash!! I am sitting here laughing, thinking about her thought bubble.(In a doggie voice)."Gee, what to they expect me to do, DRIVE them around now, so they don't get hurt anymore? I want extra kibble for THIS job!" emoticon

May you all have a peaceful and healthy Christmas!! Linda

Oh no! I was on the wrong thread! At my age I don't know if i'm coming or going but the taco was good.

Bummer. I spent Christmas eve all alone. robert has been in Kaiser ER. I didn't want to go because last time we went to the ER they admitted him and all my prospective rides home were busy. So I stayed.

We were oput walking Leone just after dark and he strepped off the sidewalk on grass and didn't see the hole and he fell over large sharp rocks. The rock cut up his eye and face and he was a bloody mess and he has 2 confirmed broken ribs and a sprained swollen wrist. He wouldn't accept Percocet prescriptions. He's home now and resting. Looks like i will be doing all the food preperations for the family tomorrow.

Merry Christmas everyone.

55 for today's high.

Raked leaves all afternoon. My Wife came out to check on me when I was about half way through. I told her I needed $10. "For what?", was her reply. I said, "A woman on a bicycle came by and said she would finish raking for $10." She went back inside and didn't give me $10.

Fog, 52, dense fog advisory until 6 am Sunday.

Heavy rain this morning. Got a phone call not to come to work. I guess people don't do home improvement when it's raining. DW said that's OK. there's plenty of work here for you. I wish I was working!

How wonderful a gift for you both! I wish I could afford a nicer camera:Kristy loves photography.. I have an HP 5mp from when they first came out.. it will have to do..

today I just hung around, napped from the after effects of the HALF tramadol I took last night. I am excited that I get Christmas day off.. only four workdays!!

The roads are crusted with ice so we did our errands this morning and stayed in..

I hope everybody is staying healthy, washing hands, drinking water and taking that VitC.

We are hunkering down for an icy,crusty, freezing weekend.. ice is covering everything,no it is not pretty, it is ice.. ice is for lemonade and polar bears..
If I had an army-issue bazooka, i would be happy camper to make water out of this snow and ice..
We are all walking around like ducks and penguins,:feet up and gently putting the other foot down, carefully testing the surface to avoid falling down..
Semis flipped over, lots of accidents..
I am sure hoping we can go on vacation next year,,, cabin fever gets really old, really fast..

Cloudy, 68, high near 75 with rain. Strong thunderstorms are possible as a cold front approaches, dropping temps. into the upper 30's.
Earlier in the week, they thought we would get some freezing precipitation from this storm, but the coldest air is tracking to the north of us.
Maybe you will get some of this, Lin.

Texas has two seasons:
Summer & winter
Usually they alternate days within the same week.

No snow today as predicted! However, rain, then freezing rain, then more snow tomorrow.. great, ice crusted snow to drive and walk on.. I smell hip replacements for half the city here,, a new condo for ortho docs!!!!!!

It was supposed to hit thirty degrees here, but it was 20,, It is always windy, so that Lake effect sends bitter winds to your bod..
I read a Spark article last year that using lip balm actually hinders your lips to stay moist. One day I forgot to put it on just to get in my car in the garage and then walk fifty feet to the workplace. My lips split on top and bottom by the time I got home.
Michiganders bodies are covered with lotions, creams, balms, even olive oil if we run out of the other stuff.. and you all wonder why we are so white when we live until spring!!

Mostly Cloudy, 57, high near 70.

I have turned all my paper work in to the TX Workforce. Now I have to wait to be approved for me to go back to college.
If everything checks out, I will start the 13th of January.

It's about 40 and foggy. (note: I can see more clear in the fog than without it)

I'm excited... My daughter and I are going to see "The Nutcracker Ballet" tonight in Portland, Oregon.

Sunny, 46F, Feels Like: 42F, looking for a high near 68F.

It's supposed to turn cooler this weekend, but no ice or snow this time. They canceled school for the last cold spell. I told the grandkids that if they closed the school like that when I was growing up, I would still be in high school.
