I just saw that crash in Michigan on the news. Three dead, and that was just that one crash.

I just hope the freezing precip stays away here until after Christmas. That White Christmas stuff is for children.

The small town in Michigan where that humongous accident was yesterday which was on the National news....that is where I grew up, my hometown, where my parents, sister and her family, aunts, uncles, cousins and everyone still lives. My dad is the fire chief there so was out there for 10.5 hours working that. I was worried and distracted all day. Never expected to see my itty bitty hometown on the national news, nor on the local news in Nashville.

I just got back from getting my car back! It's been 3 weeks. The first "repair" cost me $1200 and wasn't the problem. Let's hope this extra $300 is it.

Kind of late last night my husband decided to go out for hot chocolate. I ordered the smallest chai latte but they gave me the biggest one. Of course I drank it and all that milk and caffeine....couldn't sleep at all, wanted to get up and clean the house or something!

It's very cold here today, at least relatively speaking - for us it's cold. I am going to try to take a walk at lunch time. Since the sun is finally out, it will feel okay.

Nell, hope you enjoyed the motorcycle club meeting - I think it's nice that you still go regardless if you ride or not....if it was a big part of your life and those are your friends, of course you should continue.

Tricia, I know this is a rough time for you, I am wishing for you comfort and relief as the days go on.

It's been a busy workweek but things should calm down a bit now. I am going to be very busy for the whole month since I am taking the last week of the month off but right now I am on track - just need to get caught up with my professional required education - that is going to take a lot of time.

That's good you guys are getting rain.
I saw you both right there in the weigh in and wanted to wave Hi. This week is really being rough, though in the past when it's over I feel 50% better. It's been really hard for me to sleep (more to stay asleep when I stir in the night). Last night I listened to one of my husband's audiobooks, and that helped me fall back asleep (Twilight).

It's raining here, too. Miserable as shopping in the rain is, we so need the rain!

We have our motorcycle club meeting tonight, I'll be driving. We now know that hubby can't drive in the dark and rain anymore. He is wanting to drop out of the club now that he can't ride anymore, but they are our friends and understand. The day comes to everyone when you have to give up two wheels.

That is such a shame you had to pay all that money for car repairs that weren't even needed Nell. I do love Subaru vehicles and can see myself in one next time I need a car but I do know the repairs are high on them. I can understand the adjustment from going to a manual to an automatic.

Nothing exciting really going on here - still getting rain and it is much needed but it is cool, damp and gloomy.

They found out what was wrong with my car, one of the oil flow solenoids had gone bad, kept sticking in the open position. It's only a $300 repair, but I paid the $1200 for nothing. Oh well. At least I'll get my own car back on Thursday. I cannot get used to having my right foot on the brake instead of the gas in order to start the car, with my left foot not knowing what to do. I still end up practically putting myself through the windshield coming to a stop when I push my left foot on what should be a clutch but is really a brake. After 3 months my hubby is still getting used to an automatic,and he is starting to appreciate it, especially in traffic.

Happy Monday! I've got a long day ahead of me at the office so I need to stay super focused.

And it is about to get very cold here. I put flannel sheets on the bed yesterday. Might as well be prepared. I don't handle cold very well so I am always bundled up.

Mommy, it's finally getting cold here too and I will also be bundling up. We have a chance of snow later in the week. Nell, my car is four years old and has no key. If you decide to get a new car you will get used to it.

I had a great day. I went to a class about core stability versus core strength and it was very good. Many running friends were there too. After that I met my husband and a friend for lunch, then we went to a Samurai exhibit at the local art museum. Then I road with my running friend to the other side of town to donate some things. It was nice but tomorrow I will need to buckle down because I need to work for a few hours. Oh! And I had the MRI on my foot yesterday. It has a bruise and also arthritis.

They gave me another rental, a fancy Outback with more bells and whistles than I know how to manage. It's got one of those spooky push button starts. I feel strange starting a vehicle without a key. It just feels so wrong.

I got my car back from the dealership yesterday after 2 weeks and $1200, but when I got home the check engine light came back on. So it's back to the dealership today. The car is 12 years old, but only has 105,000 miles on it. I'd trade it if there were another car out there I'd want, but there isn't.

Now they say 700 buildings destroyed in the fires and 11 deaths with still many missing.

I am going today for an MRI on my foot but honestly, the foot isn't really my main concern anymore, it is my hip. It's a time at work when we can't be off for any reason but I should be able to go since I can work through the weekend.

Otherwise I don't have any huge plans this weekend. Tomorrow I am going to a core strength training class and my husband asked me if I want to go to the museum to see their special samurai exhibit but I'm not sure if I will do that because of work.

The forest burned a lot, 100s of acres, but the real story is in the communities of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. I think that they are saying over 400 buildings have burned or have been damaged, both homes and businesses. Cars are burned and the video coming out of there is just horrific. Seven people are known to have died, scores of others are missing. People love go there for Christmas - we have gone in the winter ourselves, but this year I don't know that there will be much. One resort where we stayed one time is demolished. Cabins are burned, hotels....and night before last Tennessee had tornadoes too, two killed in our state and lots of damage.

Tricia, I will be thinking of you this week. May you find peace.

How sad about the fires. We've got snow again tomorrow, looks like.
I went and saw my therapist yesterday, still checking in with her. Did I mention we have some hard anniversaries this week? It's when my son was born and died. And so hopefully I will start feeling a bit better after that.

We used to ride our motorcycles in the mountains around Gatlinburg, spending the night in town. I can't tell from the maps how much forest was burned. There are fires all up the Appalachians right now, it's so dry. Outside Smoky Mountain Park, there are lots of houses up in the woods, I hope they fare well.

The fires in Gatlinburg are just heartbreaking and devastating. That is where so many of us go for long weekends. I've spent many a night in a cabin in those mountains and we like to hike there. I did a half marathon there in September and that is where my husband and I were married. They should get some rain this morning.

Back to work, let's see what happens to my weight. My actual weight was at 137.8 when I started my vacation, now it is 134.8. Don't know why it is always down when I am off work.

Tricia, my husband periodically works from home for long periods of time and in fact is doing so right now...he loves to work from home, but he does need the social interaction - it gets where he hates working from home because he is just here alone for hours and hours.

I was off today and did some organizing and cleaning, felt like I made progress but as usual, I need a lot more time to get things done. My house always looks good on the surface and it's clean but there are places where there are piles of junk that need to be taken care of, and my crafting stuff is a disaster. I got the tree up and other Christmas decor done today and had some relaxing time too, reading and such.

We are finally getting a good soaking rain and a lot of wind along with it.

My weight is down a little, but nothing like 3 pounds. We were really low key Friday and Saturday. I did a lot of organizing and cleaning this weekend. We saw Sully on Friday, and that made me want to see Apollo 13 again. I might drag my husband into a video tonight still.

Church was really good for me. I think I don't get enough social interaction in my days normally. I can go days without leaving the house with working from home.

Hey All! Now that I am back from Michigan it should be easier for me post. It's really hard doing it on the phone or tablet. I still prefer my laptop but it didn't go to Michigan with me.

Thankfully today has been uneventful - we weren't home so the house didn't get messy and so I am doing things like laundry and groceries but nothing major is necessary. I am hoping to cook more this week because I am tired of eating out at the icky places that my husband likes but I am already seeing issues with our schedules. I am not able to run right now because of hip issues, and can barely walk actually, so I am going to use this time to catch up on things that I am behind on around the house, things that need to be organized or have been neglected. On the weight loss, so I am down three pounds and that is with no exercise, eating huge meals, dining out a lot and eating lots of desserts. Maybe I need to eat more?

Back from Michigan! After a week of huge meals, dining out and desserts with pretty much no exercise, my weight is down three pounds. I suspect when I head back to work next week it will rebound. Seems to bea pattern here.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Sounds like you managed to work exercise in to yours Tricia by doing stairs. I did a 5k tonight but I am still not injury free so it ended up being mostly walking.

I spent most of my day cooking: sink to the counter to the stove to the fridge and back again. Not a lot of steps but a lot of lifting heavy pots. I have one of those old fashioned kitchens where I have to lift my pots out of the cabinets, no pullout drawers, and carry water to the stove, no pot filler. Poor me, but good heavy work. I'm listening to a Michener novel, "Poland", a good long book, perfect for lots of kitchen time.

That's great you were able to volunteer, Gloria, and I hope you have a good visit!
We are visiting our folks in the next county, just for an early dinner and then regular dinner Thursday.

Going to plan to stick with one plate at each, and have things I really like rather than try to have some of everything. Had trouble sleeping last night, but that's been the first time in a couple weeks. Also need to make time to work out.

Congrats on getting your class done Tricia! That's got to feel good.

We went to Kentucky yesterday to see Greg. I feel like he could get his life straightened around but we don't know yet how things are going to turn out. Spent time with the inlaws as well, and went to see our friend who has been in critical care for 38 days. They just moved him to long term care. He still has a long way to go but we are so happy he is doing better.

Today I volunteered for a full marathon. Very fun with lots of friends at the water stop I was at and many running in it too. I went for a walk with my friends before I went there, and this afternoon I spent grocery shopping, doing laundry, etc. I'm going to see my parents tomorrow.

I got done with my writing class. I need to do some community mental health activities now. I did some before the hospital work.

Went to a wedding reception tonight, I think the first for the child of a contemporary. The mother of the bride was my maid of honor back in the day.

Ugh, care issues, hope you get that all straightened out Nell.

Had the ultrasound on my foot yesterday, results were inconclusive so now it's on to an MRI. It's not a cyst, not plantar fascitis and not a fibroma. There is something there, just don't know what.

Today is my last day of work before my vacation. It's gonna be a whirlwind starting tomorrow....busy busy busy.

I have to get my car to the dealer, 45 mins away. Yesterday it started bucking at low rpm's and the check engine light started flashing (not just on). I called for an emergency appointment, but not in time to be able to get a loaner car. Hubby will have to follow me down and bring me back, then do it all in reverse when it's fixed. One week to Thanksgiving, I don't need something else to do. Sigh.

It's going to be 80 here for the next couple of days. It feels more like August or September than Thanksgiving. Got out and ran three miles with my friend early this morning. My foot doesn't feel too bad today. Will get the ultrasound on it this afternoon, hope they have good news. I am working from home today, what a relief not to deal with the commute and traffic.

That defiance was part of his regular demeanor. Whenever we called him on a job poorly done (a really bad painting job, a string of mis-diagnoses, directing a waterproofing company to waterproof the wrong wall- that was an $11,000 error) he had a million excuses of how he couldn't be blamed. It was always someone else's fault. At least he's gone, I hated arguing with him, but the board is the boss, so we didn't have to. He never understood that he worked for a board.

Surprising that the maintenance guy was defiant, seems like it would be a relief to get out of a situation where he was in over his head and if he knew that was the case, just accept it and move on!

Awww, sorry about your anxiety Tricia, I get it though. But sounds like you are doing great with school!

My current anxiety deals with my weight creep and working out. I'm not getting much exercise at all but I am having these aches and pains which is troubling and there is so much going on with the family and work. I know changes need to be made in my life but I don't know how to make that happen. At least I have been getting good sleep this past week.

Nell, sorry to hear about the maintenance man. Takes me back to our apartment managing days.

Gloria, sorry your hip is bothering you. Definitely hope it's not kidneys!

I was really anxious earlier today, and when I took stock I realized I had good reason to be. Sometimes you can count your blessings but sometimes you gotta get real. I guess the really odd part was I wanted to get out to a neighbor's son's funeral but work got too crazy. And I felt really bad about anything else I had to do that disappointed people the rest of the day.

But I got a good amount of homework done (a term paper). Still a lot to do, but I think I have my teeth far enough into it, it won't be such a push to get started tomorrow.

It's such a busy week but it will be worth all of the trouble and hours as I will be off next week. Met with some friends last night for coffee and that was nice, today I ran three miles before work. Foot isn't any better or worse so that is good. Ultrasound for that tomorrow. Right now I am more concerned about a lower back/upper hip pain that I am afraid could be a kidney issue or something. If that doesn't clear up soon I will have to go to the doctor.

I felt a lot better after talking to my sponsee's husband. He has been living a long time with an angry drunk, and has finally had enough. It's another kind of bottom, and he has the resolve to move on. He sounded sad but good.

I leave in a few minutes to head over to the condo to finally fire the maintenance man. We caught him in a lie, at which point you start looking for other lies, and there they are. All the tasks he said he did, upon examination we find that he didn't. He will be upset, we are overpaying him for his skills, for the skills he told us he had and his references "confirmed", but another lesson learned. How do these people find so many people willing to lie for them?

Back to work and I am feeling pretty exhausted. I slept 10 hours last night, which for me is a lot. One of my friends was really sick while here and I hope she didn't spread her germs to me because this is going to be a very difficult work week and I don't have time to be off. But I have a runny nose and scratchy throat so I am guessing that I am fighting whatever it is she has. I took some zinc and will continue to do so in the hopes that if I can't get rid of it, at least I can mitigate it so it isn't so bad.

We've got very acrid air here due to the wildfires around. We've had some smaller fires in middle Tennessee but the worst of it is to the east around Chattanooga and the Carolinas. It is hard to believe that the bad air could get this far west of those locations.

My weight is up about a pound and I was hoping that today would be a reset as far as exercise and eating...but I was too tired to get and and do my workout. I really want a nap right now and I've only been up a couple of hours.

Tricia, hope you are feeling better. Nell, hope your talk goes okay and isn't too difficult.

My friends have left and now I am working on laundry and housecleaning. I need to go to the store and work for a while. I feel exhausted.

I wasn't feeling well yesterday so even though we ate out all 3 meals, I ate my usual number of calories. Today my appetite isn't very strong either. I'm feeling a little better but don't think I'll do my strength training tonight. I've had elevated anxiety but I'm thinking it's the illness causing the anxiety and not the other way around.

I love going to antique shops, but never with the goal of acquisition. I just enjoy it the way I would a museum. Enjoy the chocolate factory! You'll smell it long before you get there.

I went out and did 3.5 miles this morning. My foot doesn't ever seem any better or worse if I am on it. The swelling and pain seem very random and not tied to any particular activity. I don't want to do anything major on it though until I get the ultrasound and have an official diagnosis.

I am taking my friends to a chocolate factory today and then we will visit the Antique Anthropology location in Nashville. I am not into antiques but one of my friends enjoys doing that sort of thing. I have a very healthy location chosen for our lunch, however, they may outvote me on that.

It is hard to avoid the news but I do a fair job of it. I turn the local news on in the morning while I am preparing for work so that I can see traffic and weather, and that is really too much since I see all of the terrible things that are going on but otherwise, I avoid it.

Enjoy your breakfast Nell! Since I had the surgery for my lower esophageal sphincter I've been told never to let my stomach get empty. I must eat every three hours but sometimes that is difficult. Then I tend to eat too much, which is worse than not eating at all. Yesterday was funeral food and probably sodium today my weight is very much up. With company here it might be a little more difficult to stay on track but I need to try. They are cooking bacon and eggs, I will stick with yogurt.

It's harder to avoid news now than it used to be. I remember when news was the newspaper and the network news at 7 and 11, and that was it. Now that we have a 24 hours news cycle and an internet, it's everywhere, only most of it isn't news, just opinions.

I had a condo board meeting last night so I skipped dinner. I never like to go to those things with a full stomach or I'll get sick. And now I'm starving. In half an hour I can eat!

We've been in Indiana for the funeral of my husband's aunt, went yesterday and haven't been home long. We have company here from Michigan and I have to get up in about six hours for work. Eating today was terrible and we were sitting most of the day, either at the funeral home, in the church or in the car. So no steps and no exercise.'I was going to get up and do my class in the morning but there is no way that I can get up in four hours to do that.

Gloria, here's hoping it is something that grew from the different ways you were using your foot. Can't help going "yikes" when you hear tumor, though!

Nell, I think avoiding news is a key component of my mental health... one I need to get back to. I consume less news that most people now, but I'm getting a lot more than I'm used to and I think it's having a telling effect on me.

It's veteran's day tomorrow, and my husband likes me to go out and eat with him. Wish me luck!

I'm so glad that hubby is willing to eat at home. It's not just that I have total control over what I eat, but it's a LOT less expensive.

I have a cable news show running in another room. I think the media are the only people who have enjoyed this election season. They are giddy with the news, can't stop talking. Most people will go on about their business, but for the media, it IS their business, and a lucrative one at that.

Gloria, I hope your foot problem is easily solved. They say that when your feet hurt, you hurt all over.

I agree Nell, at least it is over now.

We have a new Greek style restaurant in our community and it just opened yesterday. Saw my husband for dinner and we tried it. I ended up getting an omelet, though they do have salads that I will try at some point. I think I also saw some sort of grilled chicken thing that looked like it might be decent. More and more I just want to eat at home but my husband wants to eat out pretty much always.

So my foot has some sort of thing (a tumor?) in there, and that is what is causing the pain. I need to get an ultrasound (or maybe an MRI) and I am now waiting for them to call me to schedule that. It could by some sort of cyst but also it could plantar fibrosis (or something like that) which is basically a benign tumor. There is nothing they can really do for that because it will just grow back if they remove it. It's painful but I don't think it will make it worse to run on it so I ran about a mile this morning when we did the warm-up for the circuit training class.

I'm working from home today so that I can go to the doctor. I debated going to the cycle class but decided that I so seldom sleep late and this was a great opportunity for that - although sleeping until 6:00 a.m. isn't really late by some standards, for me it is since I am always up by 3:30 a.m. or 4:30 a.m. at the latest.

I think a fresh start is a great idea Tricia! I like that and this is the perfect time of the year for that. I have an appointment with the foot doctor tomorrow, I know he will tell me swimming is okay but I am not a swimmer. I learned to swim as a child and I can swim a little but I need a lot of practice and I need to learn to breathe properly in the water. I probably need adult swimming lessons. However, since I am not keen on getting in water that is less that 95 degrees, water sports are probably not going to happen for me. So I am hoping that he will also let me strength train and cycle. Right now I am not even sure walking is going to be an option.

Among all of the other issues we have (sick family mostly), my husband's aunt unexpectedly passed away yesterday. I am expecting company from out of town but I am just not sure if that will work since we are going to be going out of town ourselves.

One of my granddaughters swims competitively, and she is in amazing physical shape. She is being offered swimming scholarships to colleges. You CAN get in great shape in a pool, but you have to take it as seriously as any other sport.

Good luck with the foot Gloria. I just reviewed an article about low impact exercises like aquatics being healthful as running based on heartrate. Though it can be hard to achieve training heartrates in a pool.

I'm hoping to make a fresh start now that my term is winding down. Not a Mardi Gras fresh start, just a grateful for what is fresh start.

Well, I was supposed to do a 10 mile race today and it is one of my favorites...I've really been looking forward to it but my foot hurts for some reason and I decided to volunteer for it instead. I was really cold when we started this morning but it has turned out to be a pretty day. I think I know what is wrong with my foot...it is probably bruised, on the heel. I remember now that I stepped on a piece of kibble and it was very painful. I don't know how something so small could make such a problem but I have an appointment with my friend's husband who is a podiatrist - that is on Tuesday. I think heel bruises take a long time to heel.

Nell, it's also been hot here, in the mid to high 80s and we have set many records over the past couple of weeks for high temperatures. We are also in a moderate drought state.

That is terrible about the fire, very irresponsible to leave food cooking unattended - so scary, and not considerate of the other residents. Goodness.

Today will be very busy at work and I've had a slight headache for a couple of days but I have to stay very diligent and focused today. I am having some foot trouble and won't be doing my race tomorrow, which is very depressing for me.

It's already 70 here, going up to near 80. This is it, though, tomorrow the high will be around 60, so I intend to enjoy being out and about today.

We had a small fire at the condo yesterday. Lots of firetrucks, they had to break down the unit door, it was a pot pouring black smoke, but the fire hadn't yet spread. The owner is livid that they broke the door (they cost about $1200 to replace), but the fireman gave the site manager the wrong unit number so she brought the wrong key and they couldn't wait for the correct one. That owner is nasty under the best of circumstances. If you want to leave something cooking while you're out, get a crockpot. I have to deal with insurance for that today, make sure all our documentation of the event supports the fact that she was the cause.

Still warm here but tomorrow should be in the 70s instead of the 80s. I've been working late this week and I am tired. I got home last night only to discover my husband had the pool closed yesterday. I about had a fit over that. I am not ready to give up summer, especially as warm as it is. We usually don't close it until close to Thanksgiving.

They just announced at our office that we can wear jeans on Fridays. That will be nice, especially in the winter. We are still having weather in the high 80s here, 87 or so. Average is about 66 so we are at least 20 degrees warmer than we would expect. I am actually enjoying it. I got out for a short walk at lunch time yesterday and it is dry heat so it was not miserable like it might be if it was humid. It's really dry though so there have been some fires...nothing bad but still. There is still too much candy around here and my pants are tight. I got home from work late last night and got to bed late so skipped my circuit training class this morning so I could sleep in a little....now I am not happy that I did that. I walked the perimeter of the floor I work on three times when I got here. I hope I can at least get some steps/walking in today. I am having foot issues and I am not able to do much running (if any) right now.

Nothing stops me from eating candy. I never used to eat much of it but somehow as I have gotten older I really love it. There was so much of it around here. I ate a tootsie roll and three milk duds, which you would think wouldn't be too harmful, but I felt stuffed. I easily get full and then this morning I weighed almost two pounds more, though I know that what I ate yesterday didn't warrant a two pound gain.

So we are headed into busy week at work. Hopefully it won't be too terrible. I have to stay focused.

I for one hate candy corn, but that won't stop me from eating it if it's in front of me. Go figure.

Hope you have a fun time with the kids Tricia. My stepson never did like to trick or treat much. He was never a big fan of sweets. When he was seven we drove all the way there to take him Trick or Treating (we live 2.5 hours away) and he was simply not interested, wouldn't knock on peoples' doors. Halloween is my husband's favorite holiday and he loves candy so he was kind of let down over that. We don't get kids at our current house (or our last one) - houses are old ranch style houses and the yards are gigantic (we have over an acre) and the houses are far apart and sit very far back from the yard, so it isn't too conducive to trick or treating....most people go to the the newer subdivisions nearby. We currently don't have plans but knowing my husband, that could change. I like candy corn too and I found out that I could buy it in bulk at my favorite grocery store so I bought just a tiny bit....like five pieces are enough to satisfy me.

I'm done for this week, did 3 12 hour shifts. I think next week should go smoother because I will be in the pattern of day napping going in. I had a nap this afternoon and am trying to stay up so I'll sleep in the night.

I'm not really sure what we're doing for trick or treating yet. It looks like the weather should be okay. My 8th grader wants to go out so that will probably happen but I don't think our kindergartner will go out. We'll probably see 200 kids here. It's a very old fashioned and walkable neighborhood. My husband's been doing the shopping so I imagine he'll pick what we pass out. Probably chocolate, which I don't eat. I'll have a couple of portions of sweets (I like candy corn) and then we are able to go to the dentist next month.
