OMG, been on the go all day and missed an awesome thread discussion!! LOL
Maw, welcome home! If I lived closer I'd loan you a Schnauzer or two for your walks... Four brown eyeballs staring at you with intensity in the mornings mean there is no alternative to walking, and doing it, like NOW.
Woubbie, that's funny - I share that admin's frustration! Maw explained the 'ticking' part, and the 'tying' part is tying it out to a credit card statement, bank statement, loan statement, etc. I've never heard those two words used together like that though, and it sounds like something Schnauzery that would get treated with a topical application of Frontline, Advantage, or Trifexis...
Connie, I am moderately freaked out on your behalf... I'd definitely be carrying a weapon too! I did when I was online dating (gave that up after a long parade of sad-sacks, slack-jawed dullards, and straight up weirdos!). Listen to your intuition - and read "The Gift of Fear" by Gavin de Becker!
Joy, is one tree enough to block Junky Guy??! I have Trashy Guy living next door to me...
Terr, I did an eye test today and found out that my vision is NOT as good as I thought it was. I got lasered back in 2000 and apparently that can change over time (and age). Poop. Hope you get your prescription fixed and I hope that tomorrow is smooth sailing.
My day was a lovely day of self-care! I took the day off work and went to the doctor for all my long over-due maintenance stuff. It's about an hour and a half to the clinic (I never changed doctors after moving out of the Seattle area) and I didn't head for home until 1:00. But I got home and picked up my newly resuscitated laptop (which I am using right now - my life is whole again), went and had a pedicure, and then went out to my former client's medical spa and had a facial laser treatment!
Tomorrow: back to reality - metal building, chaotic boss, money and paper juggling!
If I forgot to comment on someone's post, I apologize - my brain is fried, but this was an exceptionally entertaining thread today! Too late to go to bed on time so I'm settling for 'soon'.
