Happy Monday -- I finally got a full night sleep (with a bit of help) .. but slept !!! WOOHOO!!

Monday, November 26, 2018

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 .

With a little help from Mel A Tonin last night, I finally got a full night sleep .. I feel a little dopey this morning, but hey .. I got a full night sleep !!!!! That's a step in the right direction .. I still feel like ick, but at least I got a full night sleep... lol lol lol

I talked with mom yesterday regarding her "antics" of the day before .. Well -- her neighbor, Ceile (an angel if you ask me .. ) actually talked with her, and told her that she was very uncomfortable with mom's antics from Saturday; and how unsafe it was .. Mom called me and asked if I felt the same way, and I told her yes .. Ceile told her to use her cellphone .. and I will make up a card with numbers so she didn't even have to worry about finding "contact numbers" .. she just has to push numbers and hit OK ... Okay-- Ceile got one step farther than I did .. I've been telling her to carry her phone with her since daddy passed in 2005 .. SHE was the one that wanted it .. GRRRRRRR Well -- now that Ceile told her to use it, it's fine .. Geeze .. it used to be Bill said this and Bill said that .. (same thing that I have said) and it made so much sense .. now its Ceile said this and Ceile said that .. (same things that I have said) and it makes so much sense .. *rolling eyes here* .. lol lol .. I know .. I see mom so much and am so close to her, that I could preach up a blue streak, and it would just be nagging, but someone else says the same thing ..and it makes sense .. *sigh* .. lol .. At least with Ceile it comes out more like an army command (retired army) ... and there is no question .. lol lol lol .. I feel bad for Ceile because she revealed to mom that she's afraid that if something happened to mom under her watch; that my SIL would sue .. I told mom .. that would not happen .. 1-she would just be wasting time and money (which she wouldn't do) ... 2-I would hope that my brother would put his foot down, and 3-"I" would come out full force and take no hostages .. it won't happen !!!

So -- after Ceile had a talk with mom, (she didn't get sleep on Saturday night either); mom called me to see if that was the reason why I didn't come over .. I told her no -- the reason I didn't come over, was I wouldn't be comfortable because of the weather that was supposed to come through (that never did), and I was having belly problems and just didn't feel well .. but I wasn't happy with her story .. not at all .. I told her that I thank God that she had her normal luck .. and nothing happened; but everything was WRONG !!! Her other neighbor was coming back to pick her up, she should have just waited .. and she came back with a "but" .. I told her that she is never to flag down a car .. she came back with a "but" .. I told her that she should have had her cellphone with her .. she came back with a "but" ... I told her that she should have carried a slip of paper with phone numbers in her wallet .. she came back with a "but" .. She understands that I wasn't pleased ... and it did upset me .. but she also came back with but but but .. *rolling eyes here* ..

So -- we both agreed that that was now out in the open, and we both understand each other .. she said she couldn't find her phone charging cord .. I told her that was no problem .. it's a newer phone, and we could just get a new cord .. "I" might even have one .. if it's the same hookup as our flip phone (home phone) .. if not I can take it to Best Buy and just get a new one .. and we'll get a list of phone numbers that she wants to carry with her .. I could put it on the size of a business card and she can keep it in her wallet .. no extra space .. she moves her wallet to a new purse, she moves the numbers ..

THAT chapter is closed ..

Today hubby wanted to run up north "to get the blanket" .. I told him I was done with casinos for a bit, we don't need another blanket; and right now, can't take the chance of a long drive .. (ummm) .. so after a couple of attempts he gave me, I finally told him that I have plans for today .. I want to start putting up my tree .. (didn't tell him that or he'd be hauling up all the buckets (even the ones I don't need .. lol) ) I've been waiting for this .. and looking forward to it !!! and I want to do it .... :) *stomping foot on floor* ..

As of this morning, I'm down 4ish pounds from before vacation .. I know that my problem of the last few days, along with all the walking during vacation; has helped .. one my "problem" is cleared up, the question will come..can I maintain the weight off .. :)

Wishing everyone a great day .. and make whatever you do .. to your best ability !!!! :)

    Mel A. Tonin is a nice guy, isn’t he! Lulls you to sleep!!

    Glad that Ceile talked w/your mom, but even better, your Mom talked w/YOU about the situation. Bottom line is at least she’ll listen to Ceile! Ah, Ceile is retired Army. Yup, that explains a LOT!!!!!!! They do have a way. Ummmmm oh yeah. I can see the daddytude you’d have if your SIL caused waves! I would NOT want to be in her shoes! I can remember having uncomfortable discussions w/Dad, but you know what?? It was better than his alternatives, which would have been unsafe.

    Yes, I'm glad we didn't get this storm. IL has areas that got up to 15 in. of snow, so Jas is working from home. No complaints from me, that's for sure!

    Have fun today!
