Sorry for your losses, Gloria. Ah, the cycle of life - it keeps going round and round. It sounds like both women were well loved - and that is a good life!

I am off to Alaska in the morning. I'm going to Anchorage to spend the holiday with my son and his new wife - it will be great to see old friends as well. The weather isn't too bad some flurries and highs in the 20's lows in the teens. I packed my fake fur which is the warmest coat I have ever had! I bought it when we lived there. I'll be back on the 2nd.

Everyone have a joyous and grateful holiday!

Wow Gloria! I am sorry to hear about your aunt. She definitely lived a long life.

Started applying at places to volunteer at in January. I'm already set up for Second Harvest. Waiting to see about the Nashville Library and I saw a Sat one that was for the Zoo Run. Maybe I'll see you there, Gloria, if you decide to do that one!

Wow 7 miles is fantastic!

Wow! I walked almost 7 miles at work last night. A usual night is a little more than 5. No wonder I am tired.

Woo hoo, winter solstice, I am so happy. I am looking forward to more sunlight...yes, we are headed into the time of cold and snow, but the extra daylight will help. Kelly, have a good trip to Florida, you too Gwenn, wish I was going down there! I could use the R&R! I hope that the new position is good, I don't know, transitions at my office can be rough but I have high hopes.

My great aunt passed away today. She was 96, had been ill, 10 kids. She was my grandma's youngest sister and the last of their siblings. I won't be able to get back for the funeral, that is one disadvantage to living so far away from the family.

Got our turkey today, a fresh one. I have to get my grocery list together and go get the rest of the stuff tomorrow. Got all but one Christmas card finished - I need to write a note to go with the last one. Made our cards this year and I ran out of cards but fortunately was able to make a few more. Got my husband's family's gifts wrapped today too, except for Greg's (stepson), we still need to pick something up for him so I couldn't put the wrapping paper away yet. I will be full on housecleaning tomorrow, I've been so busy and this place is a bit of a mess!

I'm sorry for the loss of your friend, Gloria. I'm glad you were able to go to the service. Hope this new move is good for you!

I'm not really bored- I've been keeping myself busy but I know that I will be doing more when we return from our trip. I just have been putting things on hold until I am able to give things my full attention.

Sorry to hear about your friend Gloria, and you know she is at Peace now. I think your sadness has taken over your mood and the sun did shine yesterday.

Keep in mind, today is the start of winter the plus side is day light will start to get longer. We may feel like we are freezing our tookas off but it'll be daytime longer. Every minute counts.

Do we congratulate you on this move back? Whatever, I just hope it will lighten your work and stress load.

Have a great trip Gwenn, where are you headed in FL? And are ya bored yet? Just kidding! I'll be heading down on Tuesday, back the following Tuesday. Home for a week then off to NY.

Well, have a great day.

Hope

Kelly

Oh Gwenn, lucky you to go to Florida! Kelly, are you going down there for Christmas? I could take some warm weather right now myself. I have never done well in the cold and last week was especially rough. I think it was because it was so damp and gloomy. Today it was a bit better. Last week my friend passed away. She was young, so sad, she was 63 and had cancer. Memorial service at Belmont Church today. I was supposed to do the Ugly Sweater 5k but went to her memorial service and it was so nice. She was so kind and compassionate and very upbeat and cheerful and she will be missed. Got out for a while to enjoy the weather in the afternoon. I have tons and tons to do over the next few days, it is going to be chaotic but I am sure I will get it all done eventually! Oh, and I am moving to a new position in about a month. Four years ago I moved from the accounting group to the Insurance group where I am an accountant, now I am moving back to the accounting group.

Hope you were able to get out before the clouds came back yesterday Toni! Very interesting about the effect of coffee on the adrenals. I used to drink a lot of coffee but now because of my esophagus stuff I shouldn't have any. I still drink iced tea, but I think that it is so watered down that the amount of caffeine is negligible. I looked up the Panera chai, allegedly no caffeine but who really knows. Isn't it interesting that right now "experts" hype caffeine up and tell us how great it is?

I am at a point where I have so much to do at home to get ready for the holidays that I just want to leave work and get the stuff done, but of course that isn't possible. I have next week off but by then most of this stuff must be done.

Gloria - caffeine/coffee hits those adrenal glands and can wreak havoc. Here's an article. www.livestrong.com/article/543829-ad

Treadmill and Yoga this morning and then finish the laundry! I love the sun and will definitely get outside this afternoon!

Lots of traffic this morning on the way to work! Not sure if it was because of the fog - maybe people left their houses early because of it. Looking forward to the warmer day but I guess rain and then cold are coming? I will try to get out for a walk today to enjoy the warmth.

I am not supposed to have coffee (either caffeinated or decaf), no caffeine at all actually and for some weird reason the hot teas upset my stomach and since they have caffeine, they are actually off limits anyway. I can handle a chai latte, maybe since the caffeine is so diluted from the milk, but I can't drink ten of those a day! So lately I have been buying the spice tea bags - herbal only, no actual tea in them (so caffeine free). I put the tiniest bit of sugar in them and one of those tiny individual cups of half and half, and voila, I have a chai latte with very few calories! It's such a yummy treat! But I do still treat myself to a real one a couple of times a week. My favorite one is from Panera but I will do Starbucks too - extra pump of chai, no water added. Mmmmmm!

I've got a busy week ahead and work, if I can get everything done, I will be off until January 2nd! Wish I could take that day off too but our accounting group can't be off the first five business days. It's okay, I am still going to LOVE the time off that is coming!

Be careful out there, fog is lifting but heard there are areas of ice fog too! But it'll go up to 58 this afternoon, get out those flip flops.

Hope everyone had a great week-end, quiet on this end of town and nothing new or exciting for me.

Thank goodness, and technically you could say tomorrow is only 3.5 hours. I think I can do 3.5. I tell ya, these two weeks have been the most ridiculous, hellacious 2 weeks of my life. I can do it!! I have never met so many special people who are hell bent on getting in your business and then judging you for it.

Nice weather out there right now!

Geez, what a way to exit, with strep. Both of you take care. I saw a picture of several bourbon shots and the caption was: Get your flu shots. (It was an ad for Buffalo Trace Bourbon)

Yippee the sun is coming out! Everyone have a good one, CUL8R!

Thank you Amanda! I hope things are better too! I appreciate everyone's good cheers :)

Woooo 2 more days! So we are actually both sick, if you can believe it. Yesterday my husband came home during the day because he said his throat felt bad. Then it got better. I started feeling like my throat was a little scratchy, but it wasn't bad this morning. He said his was terrible, so he went to the clinic and he had strep. I thought, great! So I couldn't make it to the clinic until after work and about an hour and a half wait later, I found out I have it also. UGH. The crazy thing is, my throat doesn't even hurt- it feels like I have a lump in it. They told me I could go to work tomorrow, but she gave me a note just in case I decide not to. Hmmm so tempting! Although I truly need to finish something tomorrow and don't want to stay all day on Friday. So in answer to your question, Gloria, my plan was to leave at 11:30 on Friday. I was going to put in time just to use it, but then my boss was making fun of me because I did. Also wondered why I was coming in on Friday, which I thought it was required to at least show your face the last day. I would rather not if I don't have to, but you know. The great part though is, I got paid the Christmas bonus ;) It wasn't much but it's better than nothing! I should still get my 40 hours of vacation paid to me as well.

So here was an interesting part of my day. He asked me to schedule his three interviews for my job for this afternoon. He emailed me right before he left for lunch. So I did it, although I wondered why HR wasn't doing it. Then each one of them felt they needed to talk to me before or after their interview. I just wanted to say, please pretend I'm not here! I think he wants me to come back there and train his new person. I think they can probably figure that out like I did!

Hope everyone had a good day!

Good job on getting some time for yourself Amanda, we all need that! I try to get a little time for me on Saturdays. Wish I could do it more often! Gwenn, can you hear me cheering for you? Just two more days, woo hoo! Any chance they will let you leave early on the last day? I would just want to GET OUT at that point!

Nothing unusual going on over on my end, just living the rat race, nothing changed there, GO GO GO, LOL!

Good to see you again and that your job is going great. Don't forget to give yourself permission to slow down and take a deep breath!

Nothing much going on in this end of town, guessing all is well with you all. So have a good week.

Great to see you Amanda! I'm glad to hear you are doing well. I agree about the sun! Come on Sunshine!

Glad it was only wet stuff also, but those crazy rain drops seem to feed my depression. I hope that the sun can come out again real soon.

Work @ the hospital is going great. My side job seems to kind of be picking up. I am at least staying busy, but with that can come exhaustion. I am working on finding my balance between giving to others and taking care of myself.

Well Gwenn, we have this on the que for you next week. Deep breaths are good and will keep you out of trouble.

The weather is so much better than this time last year but enough with the liquid sunshine. I got my new Rx sunglasses and haven't been able to try them out.

Good luck with the run tonight Gloria, really not into the parade again this year. Although I could take the train down, so we'll see.

Have you recovered from the little tyke's visit Toni?

Have a great week-end!

It's Friday! Sheesh, Gwenn, I am so glad you are getting out of that situation, that is toxic and not good for you or your health! I am doing the reindeer run downtown tonight, after that was going to meet up with a friend for the Christmas parade, but it looks like weather is not going to be pleasant. I will do the run even if it is raining, but not if there is lightning. And I think that I will probably pass on the parade. Can't believe it is already December 5th, I need to get with the program and start getting some things done!

Yes counting for sure. Yesterday was so annoying but I kept telling myself in my head, it's almost over. Almost over. Let's just say, some people in the department I sit around, found out, and called me several expletive names, because they apparently think that's the way you treat people you like....or don't like? I have no idea. Had to walk away- just wanted to punch them in the face!

Gloria - if she has any stairs at all, rehab won't release her to go home...they will insist on another solution. This info from a friend of mine whose daughter, a physical therapist, insisted that my friend get a ground level condo because of this.

Oh Gwenn! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon YAY! I am SOOOOOOO excited for you! What relief you must be feeling! YAY!

Kelly - it is a little quiet around here, that's for sure.....

That's encouraging about your cousin Gloria, sorry to hear that she isn't ambulatory though.

Don't be scared Gwenn, you have planned for this so you'll be fine. It's always best to leave on a positive note; you are positive this is the right thing for you!

Nothing much going on this end of town. Hard to believe it's December already, the weather says it is.

Well ladies, after much discussion over several months, I put in my notice today. It is a relief to know that an end is in sight. While this opens up a new chapter for me, it is still a little scary, but I also know that I'm ridding my life of my past (long story) and looking forward to something better and more meaningful to me. I do not have a new job lined up, but I am ok with it. We have planned for this, and while the best laid plans are not always perfect, I feel positive that this is the right thing to do.

Hi Everyone, hope that a wonderful Thanksgiving was had by all. Can't believe we are already into December. It was so warm out this morning but I guess the rain and cold are on the way. Great news about your aunt Gwenn! My cousin is doing better. She is unable to walk though so she will be in rehab for a while. I don't know if she will be able to go back to her apartment after that or not...maybe she will need assisted living but we haven't really talked about that yet.

Hope everyone has a great week - try to stay dry and be careful!

You'll be fine Gwenn, although it is always hard to go back after a few days off. Just keep smiling and let them wonder what you've been up to.

Oh Toni, that silence will be deafening. I am sure that little tyke loved entertaining you all. So we know you had a great Thanksgiving.

Nothing exciting going on in this end of town, got lotsa left overs so will be eating very well for awhile. In fact, so much I think I am going to dig out the food saver and through some in the freezer.

Wanted to let you girls know that my aunt is officially cancer free! They didn't find anything in the biopsies of her tissue or lymph nodes. She received her first of many fills at the plastic surgeon and has an appointment on Friday with her breast doctor. So happy news!

Happy early Thanksgiving to you all!

That's exciting Toni! She'll probably be wearing flip flops while here. Amazing how that storm line worked isn't it. Hear of folks getting so little and go 25 minutes away and they are slammed to the rooftops. I do not miss it one bit!

Supposed to get really wet today, long as the temp holds guess I don't care.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Gwenn - Hope your Aunt continues to improve.

My daughter Vanessa, grandson Jackson and BF Billy are coming for Thanksgiving! I am beyond excited. They live in Jamestown, well south of Buffalo, and only got 6 inches but it has been bitter cold. They are looking forward to 40 degrees even! emoticon

Gwenn, hope your Aunt is comfortable today and all went well yesterday.

Sorry too, to hear about your Cousin Gloria, extra prayers out to her and the family.

Wow, it is 38 right now - 34 in Gallatin! Luvin' it! Hunker down Buffalo, the stampede will continue. Enough already. The Saratoga area got hit seems every Thanksgiving back from 69 - 71. I want to say it was Christmas 70, GE actually closed down in Schenectady. First time ever. Actually we were "stuck" at the in-laws for a few days because of it. Oh heck, I can remember going up to Laramie, Wyoming July mid 70's and being grounded in Denver because of snow. I heard even Hawaii had freezing temps this week. Can you imagine, spending that much $$$ and freezin' your tucus off.

Okay, everyone, let's find something fun to do outside and Move It!

You stopped by Gwenn, thank you for the update on your Aunt. Modern technology to be able to see her at its best. That is ridiculous, sending her home one day post op! Enjoy the visit with your folks. They picked a good to travel.

I'm sorry to hear about your cousin, Gloria. I wish nothing but peace and love for her.

My aunt made it through surgery last night and we got a pic this morning of her in her room last night. Not sure when they will discharge her, but they originally told her she would only be there for one night.

Today is my Friday and then I'm off the following week. I can't tell you how much I need to be away from here! My parents will be in town late Sat night through Tues morning, then they head to GA to visit with my brother and his family for the rest of the week.

Have a good one!

Gwenn

Gwenn - sending light and love to your dear aunt!

Gloria - sad news about your cousin. I hope she's not suffering. Sending light and love her way...

Kelly - my nephew lives in Depew just outside of Buffalo and they got hit hard. There is still a ban on traffic in most of the city and the burbs. They are warm, dry, and fed. I was there for the last big one in '75 or '76. The farm was a mile from Lake Erie up on a ridge - we were slammed - 10 foot snow drifts. That's why we came here - no lake effect snow!

Looks like today will be a pretty one! Everyone get out there today and enjoy! Rain may come with the warmer temps...

Wishing for a fast and easy recovery for your Aunt, Gwenn.

Feels a tiny bit warmer out there today. I worked late last night and will most likely work late tonight too so I might take a bit of a break later this afternoon and get out for a short walk so that I can enjoy some sunshine. I think we have a couple more days of cold and then might enjoy some warmer temps.

My cousin in Michigan is very ill, they thought she wouldn't make it through the night but she did. I am not sure if that is good or not, it is a pretty sad situation.

Not sure what is up with my tummy today, yikes! Maybe I should go for a walk sooner, it might help settle get the digestion working faster!

Love your hair, Gloria! And I also love Culver's. I always get a chocolate sundae with oreos. Delish. Their hamburgers are also quite tasty. But oh so bad for you.

If Zumba doesn't warm you up, nothing will! Wasn't it great out yesterday afternoon though? I had to be outdoors going from one building to another and found myself taking the jacket off, double layers underneath.

Camille is having another art show Saturday at that Mansion in Hendersonville, rats forget the details. (not going) I'm surprised she didn't at least drop by and let us know about it. I'm on their list otherwise I wouldn't know about it either. Guess we can create all kinds of mischief, clearly the cats are way away. I've given up trying to get a response from them.

Well, nothing exciting going on in these here parts, hope the sun shines brightly all weekend!
Brrrrr....

Have fun at Zumba Toni, the thing that I don't like about exercising when it is cold is when you come out of the class it is FREEZING! Bundle up!

Yoo hoo Y'all!!!

Brrrrrrrr! I am glad I brought all my warm clothes from Alaska! Looks like I will be using them for the near future...:)

WTG working out Gwenn! When in doubt, mix it up! That's what a trainer once told me. Sage advice!

Gloria - GREAT HAIRCUT! Woohoo! It will be so easy in the morning!

Kelly - I can guarantee I won't be doing any outdoor extra work for at least a week! the Delta lounge really is very comfortable...:)

Later...

Gwenn, good job on the working out, and like Kelly said, slow and steady is what keeps it off! Keep up the good work.

Kelly, there is a Culver's in Murfreesboro, one in Cool Springs and now one in Hendersonville. They are based out of Wisconsin and we would stop there every time we went north because they have them in Indiana and Michigan. The ones in Franklin and Murfreesboro have been there at least a couple of years, the one in H'ville just opened Monday. They are fast (FAT) food, their burgers are tiny (like Steak & Shake) but are called BUTTER burgers, what does that tell you! They have really good fried cheese curds - this place is NOT healthy! The frozen concrete mixers are frozen custard mixed with any variety of stuff, they have tons of flavors and stuff to mix in them, sort of like a blizzard I guess. So yummy but the calories, WOW! Not something I want to make a habit off, but for an occasional treat, sure!

Just posted a pic with the shorter hair. Going to get a massage today, hubby and I went to J. Christopher's for lunch (which is where the new pic was taken) and I had oatmeal and a poached egg. Trying to eat very well this week if I can, getting ready for Viva La Diva on Saturday, looks like it will be about 20 degrees at race time, yikes, I've never run in weather that cold!
