Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks .
After having the minor disagreement with hubby in the morning, (it was finished by the time we got home later in the day) .. I actually had a wonderful day. It just so happened that they had someone in looking over the computer systems to help with support .. YAY !!! and it was good that I was there; so I could answer the questions directly .. lol ... otherwise Linda would have had to write down the questions; and ask me and return back to him .. so that worked out perfect .. :)
I prefer to talk directly because then if I don't understand the question; I can ask questions .. I told Linda I felt really comfortable with this guy, and it's a company that I'm familiar with .. they had supported our copy equipment .. (and it's one less emergency phone call to me .. lol) He was very open, and explained things well .. kinda "dummed it down for us" .. :) and I have respect for those people .. I told Linda that I think he would be a great match :)
Leonard came over, because everyone was next door when I walked in, and I wasn't sure if they were having a lunch and learn or something .. so I just stayed on "our side" and waited .. Leonard came over; and saw me sitting there .. :) .. he started talking about my birthday lunch.... and I told him that we will have to wait until after Thanksgiving, because I'll be spending my birthday in Vegas .. :) and he was okay with that after feigning insult .. :) lol lol
The questions the girls had were good ones .. and Jimmy followed me around asking if they could "rent me" for awhile ... I asked why, and they said "because we want to do a physical inventory" .. I told him .. "I'm busy" .. lol lol ..I will help them if they want, and plan it on a day/weekend that I'm not busy ... but I'm not jumping through hoops .. I didn't say ah yes or boo .. but jokingly told him "I was busy" even though I don't know when it is .. lol lol ..
It was really hard switching into "work" mode .. but I did it .. I had to actually remember what I did with the database manipulations .. lol .. So funny, I could do that in my sleep, but now quilts, and casinos, and fun has pushed all that old stuff to the back burner in my head .. lol .. but I did figure it out !!! and I think I answered all their questions, because I hung around for a bit after lunch; and they threw no more questions at me .. :) ..
We had a wonderful lunch .. and I got my chinese .. :) YUM YUM !!!! We talked and I didn't cover the whole conversation ... It was Linda's turn this time .. Stuff she just needed to get off her chest; with her brother, and sister ... family stuff .. and she seems to be stuck in the middle .. and their "scapegoat" .. and I feel bad for her .. but she had her moment to get it off her chest .. :)
Mom had called me while I was there, and asked me to pick up some pepto, as she had munched on too many mixed nuts; and got herself into a "predicament" .. that started my "talking" with hubby; and I texted him to find out if he was out and about, and if he could pick some up and take it over to her .. and he was good with that .. that way I knew that she would get it quicker .. because I didn't know when I was going to be done ..
I called her when I got home, and she said she felt better after having some .. but has been staying with white soda and saltine crackers for a bit .. I asked if she had some of her chicken/rice casserole left, and she said she did .. I told her that she could have some of that if she needed something more .. I'm afraid that she's going to "not eat" because we are going up north to get her "jackpot" from last week, because she didn't have any ID with her then; and she doesn't want to cancel that ... but I'm more concerned that she eats ..
Other than that -- it was a pretty quiet day .. I didn't have any dinner ... I wasn't hungry, and just had a quiet evening .. :)
I did my exercises before bed, and slept well ..
Hubby made mention that he had been cold all day long, and well -- that's not unusual because he's always cold .. but overnight, I was chilly too ..and had to agree with him ..
I looked at the thermostat, and well -- yup -- we don't have a furnace .. He tried flipping switches, and well -- that didn't work, and I told him I don't like him fussing with the furnace, especially since it's a gas furnace .. so now we're waiting for the "scheduler" to call back .. yup -- no furnace .. but the good news is that at least it's when it's in the 50's outside, and not the middle of winter when it's below zero .. lol ..
I asked him if the repair man comes at a decent time; if we can go to Mayfair for a mall walk .. I would like to see if my hair lady is available on Tuesday .. so my hair is nice and fresh for vacation .. :) This next week is the prep week .. the chance to get excited .. :) and build up my excitement and drive my friends on here nuts .. lol lol ..
So -- need to get myself some breakfast as my belly is growling .. :) so talk later .. :) and have a great day !!!!!
