what a week, I agree. ~~Glad it's another day...

the dog that bit us was a rescue, THRU a rescue, but was at the pound. They were supposed to have assessed that dog but obviously had not.

I had wanted to save another one, but it was not meant to happen. Glad I have the 2 I have now.

SIGH onwards and upwards...

Sounds like everyone has had quite a hectic few days/week or whatever, I hope things are calming down by now. Debb, sorry about the dog bites - were these the dogs you've had for quite awhile? That's too bad.

Everything is quite uneventful here - weather is warmer than what is normal for us, but I did manage to walk this morning before it got too hot. I don't do so well out in the hot weather anymore.

Just got some dry rot repaired and replaced on my house, my front faces South and the side of the house/living room with lots of windows face west. Consequently, they get the most of the weather/rain/heat damage. But, the job is done, so that's all good.. And thankfully, it wasn't too deep - didn't get past some of the siding, it was mostly the trim/facings around the windows.

Ice cream is bad for you in so many ways. My current problem with it is that some butthead dropped some on the sidewalk and I didn't see it until after my foot had shot out from under me and dumped me on the ground. Fortunately, the soreness in my ankle/heel is already easing, and I expect to be walking freely (maybe with a little warmup) tomorrow. Going to have a hellaceous bruise on the knee I went down on tho'.

Wow! There is a LOT going on with you all today!

Sending out positive thoughts and prayers for anyone who needs 'em.

It was a quiet day around here today... major rainstorm woke me up at 5am, and washed away the grass seed I put out yesterday, so I have to re-do that project. My daughter and I made a couple loaves of banana bread (soooo tempting, but I won't touch it!), and I crossed some tasks off my list, like sending receipts into my benefits plan, making a few phone calls, etc. One of my phone calls was to my Naturopathic Doctor to ask some questions about this diet she has me on... but she wasn't in today. Tomorrow, hopefully.

Happy Monday!

Laura

There's a lot going on with folks this week! Debb, I'm glad the physical wounds are healing. The emotional ones will, too.

I took Clara (foster cat) back to the shelter this afternoon. I've decided that I'd rather foster cats than kittens. But my four kittens have all been adopted, which is good, though Mama Cass hasn't.

I've done practically nothing towards getting ready to leave at the crack of dawn on Wednesday. Well before the crack, actually.

My mammogram results came back clear, though the doctor recommends, based on my history (both parents had breast cancer, and Dad and a brother both had melanoma, among other things) that I have an MRI and be tested for the bach2(?) gene thingie. Haven't decided how I feel about that. I won't do anything about it at least until I get back.

Have a great week, everyone!

ah monday. it should be a busy day for me. but, i feel kind of on top of things, so, hopefully i will still feel like that at the end of the workday. my dh made supper last night emoticon he NEVER cooks, so, it was a great surprise. he made hamburgers and actually went to the effort of putting chopped onions, peppers and spices in them. i had to make the coleslaw dressing, but, he bought shredded pre packed coleslaw, so, all i had to do was make it and stir it in. he was awesome yesterday actually. he did alot of yard work and then went and got the groceries for supper and made supper. almost 18 years together and this is pretty much a first. i can probably count on one hand the amount of meals he has made and they usually consist of steak or porkchops and microwaved potatoes, period.
he didn't even buy buns for the burgers! no potatoes, no buns....my quiet training is working maybe emoticon
well, back to the saltmines. happy monday everyone.

Hi everyone. I played hookie from church yesterday, didn't really feel well and felt like I just needed to rest. I watched a marathon of Anne of Green Gables. I hadn't really ever seen them. Really good.
I had my folow up mammogram a week ago and today am seeing the cancer surgeon to make sure all is still ok. Then next week will see the oncologist after getting some lab work done. All being done to make sure there is still no cancer in me. I am pretty certain that all is ok. Have a good day everyone.

Wow, so nice to see ALL of you back and/or back in action!

Hang in there, Debb. Pain from therapy is like pain from pulling a splinter. It hurts like hell at first but then you feel SO much better. Keep working hard and rewarding your little grey cells with good things that aren't food! (((hugs)))

I've been spending MY mental energy lately trying to figure out a way to help my younger son solve some of his behavioral issues. I'm making a good bit of theoretical progress, but don't know if it's going to translate well when I discuss things with him or not.

Had a nice long talk with my sister yesterday too. She's been playing a different online game the last month, so we haven't talked online much. It was nice to spend some time together!

Have a great day, all!

yeah, my left arm (I am left-handed!) -- I was affiliated with several dog rescues and went to save one at a pound about 75 mi away. Upshot was, he should have been assessed first, before being released, and wasn't.

I tried to get him out of my home, and although there were 2 places he could have gone to, I was not about to try and get him back into my van, given that he had chomped on me the night before, and then my hubby that morning. I got really slammed for calling the dog wardens. Nasty pm's swearing, and more. It really upset me and has pushed me down pretty deep, despite my knowing I did the best I could and it was the right thing to do.

Anyway, I removed myself from the groups where people were nastier than one could imagine. And our wounds are getting better. I went to emergency and took antibiotics, had a tetanus, etc. Hubby chose not to, but I know I did the right thing for me, as I am a heart patient.

Oh well, I am loving my current 2 rescue "puppies" even more now.

Yikes, Fitkris, enjoy your last two days of freedom, er, I mean, "recovery"! Maybe the boss thinks there's more piled up than there really is... :)

Debb, so glad to hear you rented the other house! One thing at a time, and while therapy isn't necessarily fun (surgery on the psyche??), you won't die from emotional pain! Look at it objectively and from a detached distance - like you were watching a dear friend go through it. You deserve to heal and you are giving that to yourself!

Kris, welcome back! I'm so happy to see you... :)

I'm back at my desk and have a bunch of little things to do. My boss and I are supposed to meet with the CPA today for the final part of the annual financial review, and I'm hoping he remembers! I've done everything myself and he has been blissfully, and willfully, ignorant of all the financial stuff for months. I am ready to shift some of this back on his managerial shoulders!!

In other exciting news, my left jawline had slightly puffy sore spot yesterday, and this morning it was puffier and more sore. Bring on the anxiety! I'm thinking I've got a very sick tooth (it's under the broken tooth...), but after doing some quick reading online, I really think it's a lymph node. Which, of course, could still be from a tooth issue, but my teeth don't hurt at all and I'm chewing just fine. Anyway, I'm seeing the dentist tomorrow afternoon just for an exam, and we'll go from there. In the meantime, I've taken some very old antibiotics I found in a bathroom drawer... Why not? I am pretty stressed out over it - I do NOT like dental issues!! I have a good dentist now, and I've almost dozed off there (unheard of for me) during a cleaning, but this is all new territory.

Thanks for letting me whine!

Ease back into it anyway, Kris! LOL

Just came in from a friend's funeral. Sheesh what a week-and-a-half it's been, God willing, this will go on the upswing for a while now.

My dog bites are healing, so that's good, and hubby's are looking a bit better as well.
I replaced my lost mobile (cell) phone, and am grateful the sim card replacement was so cheap!
My therapy/counseling was VERY painful last week (I go again tomorrow, Tuesday morning being my session time), but I am learning a lot about myself.

Food is still awful, but I am putting one foot in front of the other and getting some things done. This particular bout of depression has been quite low and difficult.

That said, the sun is still shining here -- even if it IS way too hot! -- and we rented the other house, so we aren't paying double rent any more.

Hmm, things ARE looking up!

Hope everyone is having a good start to the week. I am enjoying my last 2 days home before going back to work on Wednesday. These last 4 weeks have gone very fast. When I emailed my boss that I would be back this week, he was way too enthusiastic about my return and said he saved some work for me like he promised...now I'm scared! Sounds like there will be no easing back into it.
