I turned off the TV too!!

Yes, G-Ma. Any tips you have would be great! I really hope Grandma meets new people and makes some friends. She really isn't that old and could have a much better time of it.

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Aw G-Ma, it's rough to relive such experiences. I've turned off the TV to get away from it all. Let me know if I can do anything for you (you're in my prayers).

You're so sweet, Barb, for helping your mom. It must be tough for her if your grandmother is not accepting.

I recognize I'm blessed in many ways.

Thanks Barb. I probably mentioned it before, but I was involved in helping the victims and families of the school shooting that happened at Thurston High School in 1998. The shooter killed 2 students, injured 25 and killed his parents. My best friends daughter was late for school that day or she could have possibly been hurt. Every time something like this happens they show her panicked and crying face on the news. A year later Columbine happened and it hasn't stopped since.

I just don't understand. emoticon

Let me know if I can offer any 'tips' for helping your grandmother make the transition easier.

I didn't realize you were so close to the Oregon shooting. And then Connecticut...scary. I'm sorry you're having such a rough week.

Sounds like your Christmas party was exactly what it should be! I'm helping my mom move her mom into assisted living on Saturday. Grandma doesn't want to leave her home and is very resistant. I hope the folks at her new place are like you and that she gives them a chance and maybe even likes it.

Let me know if I can help you with anything.

Having some Post Traumatic Stress this week. A shooting at a mall near where I live and then today's tragedy in Connecticut.

We also had the residents Christmas party on Wednesday. It was great but I am so wiped out. We had Santa pass out presents to every single resident (92 of them) and we also had professional carolers singing while this was going on. We had more family come than we've ever had before, which was great, but we were scrambling for chairs at the last minute. It felt so good when a resident came up to me the next day and said "I just love this place!" She was just so happy and that's what it's all about.

Now, all we have to do is learn how to fly a helicopter, figure out how to defeat the zombies and decide where we will retire...I vote for somewhere warm!!!

If the body is hid then we're good to go. (if the FBI is monitoring this chat please know that we are just letting off steam)

However the corporate entity is another story. Not sure how to get rid of them. Or how to bring them around to our way of thinking.

But I'll help Aurlie anyway I can!

Hang in there, G-Ma!

For the past few days, there's been a huge upheaval in the office as people are moving around. We don't have offices or even cubicles -- this place was designed as a "fun" environment conducive to interaction and collaboration (loud, distracting and no privacy at all). It's much like a daycare center with brightly colored rugs and random seating areas. In the middle of our budget crisis, threat of layoffs, and insane workload, people are packing up their gear and moving from one place to another. The phrase, "rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic" comes to mind....

Good Morning. Just got back from hospital. Bob had to get blood work done. Nothing serious. It's a drizzly, dreary looking day today but we need the rain, so all's well.

Every day I get an email from my boss about a new meeting. I am sick of it. Today she sent me an email for a "mandatory" meeting that takes place while I'm suppose to be driving residents to doctor appointments. She actually made me post a notice saying that there would be no doctor appointments before 10:30 on Thursdays.

Please stop the madness!! emoticon

That's funny, Vicki. It sounds like they want you to get in the habit of coming in every 3 months, so you'll continue to do so after the warranty period has passed.

It looks like we're well into December whether I like it or not. Anyone got any ideas for making time slow down until I can catch up?

Good Morning. Just got back from going in to get our first oil change in our new car. They want us to bring it in every 3 months. We get 4 free oil changes per year. But in the 3 months we've had the car, we've only put on 585 miles, so we don't go places very much. I don't think we need an oil change that often, but were told to bring it in every 3 months anyway.

Hang in there, G-Ma! It sounds so frustrating.

I'm back on track today -- I don't have time to be sick during the week. I ran 5k on the treadmill at the gym this morning and now I'd love to go back to bed. Instead I'm Sparking on my lunchbreak....

I made a roast with potatoes and carrots, too! Great minds think alike! I used some red wine for part of the cooking liquid and I thought it was wonderful. The grandkids liked it too. However, picky DH ate it but wanted it the 'regular way'. I like trying new things but he just isn't very flexible.
So frustrating. emoticon

I had big plans to do some serious cleaning today, but my oldest granddaughter needed help with homework and apparently her parents were too busy going to a birthday party, so I told them to bring her here. I was quite perturbed. They don't seem to understand that a parent has to be involved. You can't just send them to school and expect a miracle. Is this really the daughter I raised? Where did I fail?

Hope you're feeling better Aurlie.

Sorry you're not feeling well. You would have been more than welcome to join us. We eat an early dinner most days so dinner is already over and leftovers are in the freezer, to be used for beef stew one day next week. Everything turned out great.

I hope so too.
I just put a huge London broil in the crock pot and in about a hour I'll add potatoes and baby carrots to it. That's going to make a nice Sunday dinner for today and for next Sunday too. I freeze the left overs and then next Sunday I just thaw and reheat. But since the potatoes don't do quite as well after being frozen, I'll make a beef stew out of it so the potatoes will thicken the broth up.

Unfortunatley the higher the food chain we climb the more amnesia we get about why we were effective to begin with. Most bosses live in the fog of manifiest destiny. It's the notion gleaned from medieval times that God annointed a monarch and thus gave them the absolute authority over everything. Bosses often believe that becausae they were made boss they surley must know everything. In some respects Christmas decorations may seem small but in a larger sense it speaks about that persons view of not only staff but residents.

No one knows everything except my wife. It's how I've stayed happily married for close to forty years

I agree with Aurlie! It's too bad when someone thinks they know better...and they don't! Hope you can sneak some color in!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

It makes sense to me G-Ma. The boss is an idiot.

I'll bet you already knew that.

Let's walk!

Put up the Xmas tree at work. It's 12 ft. and the residents love it. This year the new boss bought gold and silver ornaments and white poinsettias for accent. It's got an elegant look to it but I prefer some more color as do some of the residents. Apparently the boss thinks that what she likes trumps what the residents like.

I'll just never understand that kind of thinking. emoticon

My lunch and healthy snacks are packed too! And my gym clothes are laid out and ready for me to climb in in the morning. This weekend was almost long enough for me to feel like I'm ready to go back to work!

I'm packing my healthy lunch and snack, and getting my gym bag ready for tomorrow. 20 work days left this year!

Let's walk!

I spent an extra five minutes on the elliptical before shopping. Plus we parked far from the entrances (sometimes by choice) so I got over 9000 steps in over my workout!

Tomorrow, though, will be a stay in sweats day...after the gym.
