Phyllis: KILLER IS SMART! Poor Jason ended up replacing the garage door key pad in this nonsense. Had soup and coffee waiting for him when he got in. Didn't take him long but . . . long enough!

Yes, go Badgers!

And YES! You nailed it. Gonna sleep in tomorrow.

Hi Marty! Glad to hear that you are sane and staying home! Me, too. I only went far enough with the dog for him to take his dump and then followed him as he "high tailed it" home.

Barb, I did a double take when I saw January out there. Then I just figured you wanted to sleep in tomorrow so set things up early. This would have been a good time to follow the Badgers to Miami. And they did us the favor of winning!

Good luck to Sally and all the rest of us on our resolutions. May they be sensible and successful.

Michelle, you changed jobs just in time to have your weekends with Anastasia. You two are going to have the best bonds! Good luck to DD and sis. Glad that DD has such a caring clinic! She will get the help she needs.

Sally: a toast to you, too, oh fearless leader!

Definitely wishing you and all our glorious members a happy, healthy, prosperous and might I add PEACEFUL New Year. Love the quote.

Dang that plant! They still had gloves @ our Meijers. Good luck.

Yes, the process of undecorating. **SIGH** Always a bittersweet task. But itíll get done.

Hitting our Goodwill as well!

Drove down yesterday to spend the day with my daughter and her family. My sister ended up going back to the Urgent Care, so she was unable to make it. They ran a CT, and her blood clots are actually shrinking. She was just having a bad day, with shortness of breath, pain in her chest, and her foot felt numb. But, she was feeling better last night, just tired...

We went to Cheesecake Factory for dinner, since we all had gift certificates from the same family member. It was good, but I felt that they were expensive. Glad the gift cards covered 90% of it!

My daughter is struggling. She has been having some mood swings the last couple of months. But, she hit a wall on Friday. All she wants to do is cry, and she can't sleep. And, she doesn't know why she is upset. Her husband's insurance has a great program for Psychiatric care, and she started the process which is a phone call. They talk to her, and find the best doctor to treat her needs. Because of the holiday, she has to wait until Tuesday. But, the doctor she talked to Friday night has been texting her occasionally to check on her. She has dropped her hours at work to two hours a day, and will be filling out FMLA paperwork on Tuesday. Her husband will also fill that paperwork out. I will be taking Anastasia every weekend until she levels out a bit. I am sure she will end up on medication. I gave her some essential oils for aromatherapy, but she needs someone to talk to. The doctor she talked to on Friday said it was possible that it could be a delayed post partum depression. Let's face it.. She had a very stressful pregnancy with the horrible divorce and being on bed rest. Anyway, please keep her in your prayers.

Fighting another sinus infection. I've actually had this one for a couple of weeks. I had planned on going on Tuesday, but Medusa's appointment was more important. I hope they will be open tomorrow. If not, I'll make a late appointment during the week.

Medusa is doing better every day. I'll probably call the vet this week. He had mentioned putting her on a prescription diet for the kidney disease. But, her eyes are not perfect but so much better. And she is eating more, and not so tense. Back to our little "D" emoticon

Be safe tonight for New Years. We plan on staying home watching a movie. Most likely, I'll be in bed long before midnight!

Good morning to my friends ....

LAST DAY OF THE YEAR !!!!! I TOAST MY FRIENDS


May 2018 be a year of happiness, and successes .. "If you want to reach a goal, you must Ďsee the reachingí in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal.Ē Ė Zig Ziglar May your visions be clear !!!!

Yesterday was a pretty good day, but not a goal related day .. Woke up really late; so didn't have breakfast, and well --liquid; water, coffee, tea or soda -- was pretty much non existant .. so good thing was that it was one of my "practice" days .. :)

Today will be a busier day .. I will be going over to mom's this afternoon, so I'll have to go out .. Need to find some mittens .. one of my plants pee'd after watering it on Friday, and well -- my mittens were on the file cabinet that the plant was on, and the one was literally DRIPPING when I found it before leaving .. *sigh* .. They are my favorites, and plush, but can't be dried in the dryer .. so I've been just hang drying the one for the last few days .. :( I hope I have another pair ... I don't like gloves ... they don't keep my finnder's warm ..

Maybe can stop and pick up a pair enroute if I don't have any in my "warm clothes bag" in the closet..

I also want to bring up the tubs for the ornaments, and start taking down the trees over the next week .. so hubby can take the BIG tree downstairs next weekend ..

I'll give mom a call before I leave to see if she needs anything .. I have a couple of stops I want to make on the way .. One is to Goodwill, to see if I can find an apothicary jar .. I have my 3rd "goal" listed on my blog .. and I want a jar to tuck my "happy" into .. :)

With that being said .. I'm going to get myself some breakfast here, and get started with my day ..

Craz .. thanks so much for setting up the new month !!! and looking forward to jumping in with both feet tomorrow !!!! :)

I wanted to change my picture to one without glasses...the scanner said it couldn't find the computer and the computer said it couldn't find the scanner. But I was able to print just fine just an hour before. So I found an old picture of me with my mom and goddaughter with her two sons. That will have to do until we have enough problems to make it worth calling the Geek Squad. So on to the next thing on my list.

Sally: Glad you got a good sleep. Not going out either.

Jas started feeling cruddy last night, too. Feels somewhat better today, so thatís a good thing.

Oh I have the bail $$$ dug up as I wouldnít count on behaving till the thaw! BWAHAHAHA.

Definitely too cold for a snowball fight.

Have a good one!

Good morning to my friends .. (still have 2 more minutes .. lol)

Bed fell down and I had to get up .. slept all the way until 10:00 this morning..

I, for one; am staying in today .. hubby is out and about, but I had a bought of IBS this morning (I think something didn't agree with me yesterday), and well -- still need to stay close .. Perfect excuse to NOT have to go out .. I feel fine, just "over active" .. lol lol

Phyllis .. I agree with you on the propane tanks .. I hope everyone has enough to make it through this .. I remember in our old house when we had oil heat .. and the furnace went out a number of times .. it was not fun .. Not because we didn't have oil, but because the furnace was "old" ..

Craz .... You take care of that cold .. emoticon Hot tea and chicken soup .. (turkey good too) ... Hope you feel better soon .. :) and yup -- I think we would be out of luck if there was a problem that needed the bail money ..and I really don't think that we could behave until the melt came through .. lol lol lol (notice I said WE) .. lol

Marty .. stay warm and hope you're enjoying your time with your son .. :)

Michelle .. I pray that Medusa continues to get better .. Have a wonderful time with your sister

Okay -- it's now afternoon .. so I need to get my butt going .. oh wait .. THAT part of me is going enough .. I have to get the REST of me going .. Hubby is out and about this morning, which gives me alittle time to just do my domestic stuff .. :)

Sorry -- too cold for a snowball fight right now .. I brought some snow inside to warm it up for our next snowball fight ... so I'm ready .. :)

Talk later !!!! and stay warm and safe !!!

Saturday: Brutally cold. -25 to -30 wind chills overnight. Not sure what the temps are supposed to be today, but we have a wind chill advisory till noon. That means it isnít gonna warm up much!

Glad we have a fire place. It is getting used.

Otherwise, just trying to get over my cold. Not a bad one, just sapping the energy out of me. Rested pretty well last night.

Ok, plying myself with tea and turkey soup. Itís helping.

Enjoy your Saturday. Stay warm!!

Michelle: Glad this job seems to be a good fit for you. Awesome.

Prayers continue for Medusa.

Sorry your sister is still not feeling well, but do hope that the meds help her!

Have safe travels in this frigid weather!

Phyllis: Good luck w/the paper decluttering. A puzzle is a good reward!

Marty: Stay warm!

Sally: You stay warm, too.

Good thing I dug up the bail money when I did!

HUGS ladies.

Woohoo Michelle! So glad the first week alone went well.

Nothing new here, Sally can come over and work puzzles with me any time. I have stacks of them, with and without pictures of the finished puzzle.

Today's project is a stack of papers to sort, discard or file. Or I might start with all the boxes that need to be broken down for recycling. Lots of projects for days too cold to go out. I'll save the next puzzle to be a reward for getting something done.

Finished my first cycle count for the week, and passed my first internal audit. I think I am really going to enjoy this job. I spent the afternoon working on a spreadsheet.

The vet told me today to stop giving Medusa the meds since she was making improvements before I started them. We will see what the next couple of days bring.

Heading down to my daughter's tomorrow to celebrate the holiday with my sister. She is still feeling pretty tired and lousy from the blood clots, but it will take time for the meds to work, especially since she has so many of them.

It is really only 6:30?! I'm exhausted!

Yea! Sally's on her way to a big new year celebration...at home if she's smart, and I know she is.

The guy got the garage door working yesterday and, of course, it wouldn't open again today. DH and I working together got it open and are leaving it that way until they can come back next Wednesday and try again. I took Killer to PetSmart this morning. I could keep him on their lawn and there were enough doggy smells for him to "do his duty" like Mom used to say. Then I took him to the Vet to have the anal glands expressed. So he is good for a bit. Glad to be able to stay inside. Not worth going out to make snowballs. The snow is too dry, not good packing stuff.

Happy New Year everybody!

So, TGIF to yíall.

Sally: HURRAY! One YR. sharing leadership w/you. Interesting year, eh! LOL

Yes .. I AM the sentamental type and simple dates mean alot to me .. :) That means I made it a whole year with posting .. :) THAT in itself is amazing .. I've been a member of Spark since 2006, but have never "done" anything with it .. just coming and going for a year or 2 and the coming back again .. Well -- I think you guys are STUCK with me .. (sorry) I think I'm here to stay !!!! lol lol lol

Okay -- gotta get going here .. last day of the week, last day of the month and last day of the year .. EEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!

Talk later ... when I need to find my sanity !!! :) (Marty .. got any of that energy left .. I could use some today .. :) )

Temperature was 0 on my way in to work today. Sad that it means a 20 degree difference! But, that wind is still cold!

Did a bit better today at work. I think I am catching on a little :) I spent the morning at the old job building counting inventory over there. Saw a couple of old coworkers and we chatted :)

Tomorrow is my last day working 8-4:30. They had told me I could work hours that work for me. After thinking about it, I decided to work 7-3:30. I live 40 minutes from work, so I need that extra hour in case I need a Dr. appointment, etc...

Medusa.... I don't want to get my hopes up, but yesterday she starting seeing shadows or something. She flinches when I put my hand in front of her face. She jumped up on the couch on her own, and found her favorite blanket to lay on. And, she hasn't missed the litter box in three days. And, I noticed most of this before I gave her the first dose of medication...


Hubby is working tomorrow, so he will not be home tonight. He still had 29 hours to work for the week, and that is just too much to squeeze in two days. He'll probably only work 1/2 day, but I'll be at work anyway, so.......

Enjoy your night! Stay warm!

OMG ... will some people never learn ....

Leonard sent everyone home around 2:30ish ... so it was just him and I ... He called me over to his corner ... and asked me "what is wrong with Linda ... ever since you told her that you were leaving ... she hasnt looked at me for anything?"

I looked at Leonard and explained ... 1 ... I dont know whats going on in her head .. I asked her if there was something that "I" said or did to upset her ... and she said no ... I opened the door .. now if she wants to talk ... she can ...

And 2nd ... even if I did know and she told me in confidence ... ummm I wouldnt say anything anyway ... unless it was detrimental to her, someone in the business or the business itself ...

"Thats always something he appreciated about me" .....what a goofball ...

OMG Sally, what are the odds? Hope he is gone now.

It is supposed to be warmer by the lake in winter. Doesn't sound like it this week. We are cold, but not the numbers you are putting up (or down). I did walk Killer yesterday, but we may just take him around the outside of the house today. We are waiting for a repairman. The garage door has been stubborn lately, and yesterday it refused to open more than a foot. Neither of our cars is that low. DH handled being stuck home better than I thought he would. I told him he could take a cab, but he was more frugal than restless so he took a nap instead.

Same resolution as last year. ORGANIZE. And discard! But being organized will help in every area of my life. But first, I got a jigsaw puzzle for Christmas.... talk later.

Ok ... taking a "time out" ..

A man came in to fill out an application .. and if you remember a few months back when someone came in because they had to get a business card .. for unemployment, and the man went off on me while I was alone in the office .. and I was trying to figure out how to call over to the sales side to get one of the men over ..

Well -- he walked in today .. and I immediately started shaking .. Leonard is in the office, and Linda brought him back to use one of our spare desks for filling it out .. I walked over by Leonard and reminded him "this was the guy" ..

I can't sit there.. I'm shaking so bad, so I came next door, and "taking a break" .. and called over by Leonard to call me when he's gone .. Since Leonard "came to my rescue" last time; he understands why I'm upset ..

So here I sit .. sipping my coffee, and just chilling until he's gone .. Even though he seems in better spirits today .. I still can't shake "the last time" out of my head ..

Yes -- I'm STILL breathing .. lol lol (actually today is a few bumps, but being a good day) ...

Talk later .. I have to start looking like I'm busy .. :)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday is here and gone .. and today will hopefully be better .. There was good news yesterday ... but with all the chaos I had to search for it to keep my head above water ..



Tomorrow is a VERY IMPORTANT day for the WISCONSIN PAGE !!!!! Mwaaahaaahaahaahaahaahaaa emoticon

On to a new day .. I did use a touch o daddytude yesterday .. when things just got too crazy .. and instead of giving in to my "offsite backup guy" taking over the system at 10 in the morning .. he agreed that he could reschedule at 3:30 .. which worked out much better !!! even minor daddytude rocks !!! lol lol

Michelle .. sounds like you are enjoying your new job .. and remember .. if you make booboo's the only ones they can blame is themsevles .. because they could have given someone else the responsibility of working with you while your trainer was on vacation ..but sounds like you are doing everything great !!! :)

Today will be much better .. because I've been "rebroken in" .. :)

Planning on running to the grocery for lunch today .. wait .. maybe I'll take a can of soup .. Yup -- can of soup wins ..

I posted my "baby step goals" in my blog for today .. :) and I think they are goals that I can work with .. :) This will be a good start to the year !!!

Talk later all !!! :) PROMISE !!!!! :)

Yes, it is very cold out. Yipers. Stay warm!

Well, sounds like you still did pretty well despite your supervisor being gone.

Continued good luck.

Sally - you will do great! We are all creatures of habit. You will just need to create new ones.

Baby, it's cold outside!! It was -22 on my way to work at 7, and -4 on my way home! emoticon

The vet called this afternoon. She does not have hypothyroidism, but does have kidney disease. That is a very common condition as cats age. When he looked in her eyes yesterday, he could not see the retina detachment. The blood pressure readings they got were good, but cats are very hard to get an accurate reading for BP. So, we are going to give her a human heart med along with a veterinary med for blood flow to the kidneys for 10 days. We hope that the retina will reattach (if it is detached). This is just a trial treatment to see if it works. She is actually doing pretty well - eating, drinking, and using the littler box. Surprisingly, I haven't had to clean any messes in two days! As for that tough decision, I actually expected to have to make that decision yesterday. But, the vet said there was no reason to put her down for blindness.

Work was long. My supervisor is on vacation this week, so I did the best I could. But, it seems that the numbers I worked with today were problem numbers....
Tomorrow, I will be working on a special project for at least part of the day. Ironically, some of our inventory is stored in the basement of the printing place I used to work at. I'll be over there verifying inventory to be sure there are not any discrepancies. When, I still worked at the printing place, they had sold some property behind them to the company I work for now, which is when the building was built. They are just growing at maximum speed and don't have the space.

Stay warm out there!

Michelle

Things have settled down .. for now.. Right now .. my new network guy (who's also my old off site backup guy) is working on the server .. so we can't get into our regular program ..

I got alot of steps in so far .. 5600 plus .. :) That's good for around here .. :) means I didn't sit on my dufus all day .. lol lol ..

I got out for lunch, and had a subway chopped salad for lunch .. (of course .. baby steps, I also had a bag of their chips .. lol)

I have made up my first 2 goals for 2018 .. and posted them on my info page on my front page .. I will make them official tomorrow in my blog .. :) That makes me feel better .. I had nothing .... absolutely nothing .... that I could see as being successful .. and don't want to start the year on the wrong foot .. so .. started my simple goals .. :) Things that "I" have control over .. Habits I used to have, and have drifted away from .. so I know they are doable .. :)

Once I figured out I had to EXHALE .. things seemed to work well .. :)

Looking forward to going home ... I'm pooped !!! :) but much more relaxed .. My desk still looks like a bomb went off .. but it was a clean bomb .. lol lol .. it doesn't look as chaotic as it was before .. lol

Have a great night .. :)

Oh My Goodness ...

I'm definately getting steps in today .. and have a headache to boot .. (I think it's because I drank mom's leftover decaf coffee from the other day .. (had it in a thermos, and didn't want to throw it away) well -- now it's gone, but I'm thinking I am having a caffiene headache.. because I opened my Diet Dew here, and my headache is all but gone ..

However .. My HEADACHES are still being here .. lol ..

Found out there were 2 people that still hadn't turned in their payroll direct deposit forms .. so have had to jump start them .. (next step is Cujo'ing) ... but Robert didn't understand why the CPA needed his banking information .. I told him that we were switching payroll services and he will be taking that over .. Then all of a sudden he was fine with it .. Now I just have Lois who's dragging her heels .. (Leonard's wife .. (that family is going to send me over the edge))

Jimmy's on vacation this week, but last week put the ad in the paper for a new driver, so I've been working all morning chasing after the stream of applicants that have come in ..

My off site backup person called (who's also going to be our network administrator) and in order to update the information he has to reboot the server . .. I finally asked him if we could do it this afternoon, because after a 4 day weekend, everyone is beating the keys .. and he agreed .. so I have an "appointment" for 3:30 .. (by that time I can get everyone out for 15 minutes without any troubles (they wouldn't dare ...lol) )

My desk looks like it has literally exploded ..

I asked Linda, if I could change my "techie" contact names to her .. since she's been my "grasshopper" for years .. and she said that would be fine ..

I did my last payroll with my payroll company .. and sad about that .. (another new habit ... )

The GOOD news is the deposit that Linda had this morning, more than covered my payroll needs from this week .. I was stressing about that ..

My brain is going a million miles a minute .. and Linda is out having her nails done .. when she gets back I want to get out, and get some gift cards for the payroll people .. My CService person, and the driver Gordon ..

TELL MY BRAIN TO STTTTOOOOPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!

Okay .. now that it's out of my system .. I can breathe again . :)

Phyllis .. yea .. daddy's suspenders on Hoots's boots were like garter belts that went up over her back, .. :) They really worked .. and held her boots on really well ..

and thanks for the boost of support .. I'm really trying to hold it together here, but it's been difficult .. and I know it will get easier as time goes on ..

I know during my training, I'll be repeating over and over to them ... This is the way "I" did it .. once you get yourself situated .. you'll create your own habits .. My ultimate goal will be to not get phone calls AFTER July 1 ... (they will be charged if I do .. *wink* ...)

Anyway .. Now that I have my mega flip out out of my system .. I'll be better for a bit again !!! :)

Hope everyone is having a good day .. :)

Wednesday Ė Bitter cold! Fireplace going. Layers. BRRRRrrr. -11 w/wind chills -25. Jeez-a-loo.

Made turkey soup and thatíll fit the bill.

Hope you all got to relax a little yesterday. I enjoyed that.

HUGS

Sally: Breathe, breathe, breathe. Iím sure itís a combo of excitement and scared. After 40 yrs. thatís pretty normal!

Hang in there.

Phyllis: Glad those daddy suspenders are working for killer!

Agree . . . wish we could harness both Martyís sonís energy and little Anastasiaís as well.

Michelle: Hope that youíve gotten good news about your Medusa. Prayers and fingers crossed.


Marty: Glad the washer fix was free!!!

Oh goodness on the relative pressure while youíre waiting for the repair tech! Good grief.

Glad that the stress is going away! Rest up.

Good Morning~

Where to begin....I knew Sat the man was going to come Tues between 3-7 PM to fix my washer. He fixed it for free. Yesterday, being Tues my aunt decided to invited us over for dinner around 2. I couldn't go but I sent my son. He started texting at 3. They want you to come over...The guy got here around 6:30. All my relatives were trying to make son feel guilty for me not coming. #1 no one in our family understands boundaries! #2 I wanted my washer fixed and he fixed it for free. I can't tell him the time he has available to fix my washer for free doesn't work for my relatives who decided to spring this on us that AM! Anyhow the man and wife got there close to 6:30. Some how a hose got unscrewed. All he did was screw in the hose. I felt so blessed and relieved!

Son and I chatted until 1 AM

I was to go to brunch today at my aunts but the stress from Christmas and the washer both going good, the stress is melting away and I am tired!!

First, Sally, great on the daddy suspenders! I already use a harness so it wouldn't be hard to hook something up.

Marty, can we harness some of your son't energy and pass it around? I could sure use some of that. You can be so proud of him.

Michelle, so happy that you could enjoy Anastasia's Christmas. Such a precious age. And she is so cute!

Barb, thanks for being our rock, even when your own world is shaking, you are always here for us.

Now, back to Sally. From experience I can tell you that there are a lot of stressful feelings during that last few months before retirement. It is normal. Things are not out of control. You have set everything up to go smoothly and it will. One thing I did during that last time was that I had time on the bus ride home where I would design what I wanted to do with my bedroom. Get rid of that 50's style pastel wall paper and do the whole thing up in Casbah. (I still love spending time in that retreat) You are going to LOVE retirement and will shortly not even remember what it was you used to do in that office. Breathe. It will be fine.

Good morning to my friends ..

Michelle .. So sorry to hear about Medusa .. I hope there's something they can do for her ..

Getting more and more anxious by the minute here .. I want to go to work with the idea of "everything is normal" ... but I know that this will be my last normal week of ANYTHING normal .. and being a person of mega routine, almost to the extreme .. I'm having a difficult time with this .. I will not get any panic attacks .. and I know I can handle it .. but send some good thoughts my way ...

Now is the time that I have to mega focus on my eating, and behaving ... I know it will be tough, but I'm just as tough .. and to start .. I'm going to start out with some oatmeal, and yogurt for breakfast .. that should subside any case of munchies I may get today..

Today is my last payroll with the old company, my last my last my last week of any normal .. I can handle this .. I can handle this !!! lol lol

I don't know if it's more scared/concerned for the end of a 40 year era .. or the excitement for the opening chapter of my new book of life .. I haven't figured out yet .. :)

Okay -- gotta go get myself some breakfast .. even though I'm really not hungry (frenzied at lunch yesterday ..lol) but that way I will be less likely to eat eat eat today .. and scrounge for something around the office .. :)

Talk later !!! gotta run !!

until then .. hope everyone has a great day !!!!

I'll bet that it was so much fun watching Anastasia opening her presents.

Been a busy few days, but glad hubby and i get one more day off for the holiday.

My oldest cat, Medusa, is having some health problems. She is 16. On Friday, we noticed her eyesight failing, but appeared that she could still see shadows and shapes. On Christmas Eve, she had lost all sight. The poor girl was so depressed. But, she is getting her temperament back. I took her to the vet this morning. The condition is called retina detachment, which can be caused my hypothyroidism, kidney failure, high blood pressure, etc.... They took some blood and I should hear something tomorrow morning.

Watching Anastasia open her gifts this year was a lot of fun! And even more fun watching watching her play with her new toys!

Trying to do my sparking before son gets rolling today. My son did a fantastic job. No one has seen my parent's living room, dining room, and kitchen that clean before! He had a fancier meal then my family was use to so loads of left overs. SIL in family spend their time at her mom's. Fly in to eat and open gifts. She didn't both to help clean up! They did give me what I wanted 6 silicone utensil set! In black! I love it!

Stay warm everyone!

Sally, sorry about the ouchies. Good that you have learned how to work with it.

Did I tell you my sister gifted me a ginormous tower of all things chocolate?!? Between what DH gave me and SIL home baked, I am going to have to organize everything by expiration date and allot myself portions.

I will look for the booties I bought for Ladybug. I was afraid to make them too tight on her legs and they fell off. Killer is a little toughie so I may get it right.

Hope everyone is basking in the afterglow of a lovely holiday.
Happy New Year.

Good morning to my friends ..

188 days !!!! (calculated it out, and marked it on my calendar .. double digits begin March 24 !!! the 100 day mark is March 23 (no .. I'm not excited !!! by Jan 10th it will become TRULY for real, and the push will be on !!! )

Today I'll be meeting up with hubby at Potowatomi .. for alittle playing (hopefully more willing to part with their money than the Ho Chunk nation was .. lol lol .. ) and 'olfarts' buffet lunch .. :)

I talked with hubby yesterday and it sounds like he will help me with one of my goals next year .. especially when retirement comes .. I told him that it's too easy to dress into comfies, and I want to get into the habit of "dressing" each day .. He made mention, before I got to finish, that he would take me for walks .. I told him that that was one of my plans .. Either walk outside, or go to the gym during bad weather, or mall walking during bad weather .. and since I have "bring a friend membership" .. he can come with me to the gym .. I still want to work on my weight work as well .. (ergo gym) .. He actually sounded like he was for it .. he's gotten into the habit of walking .. even though he's reduced since his blowout .. He still gets up limping in the morning .. but won't let me worry about him .. *sigh* ..

I have 6 tubes of my magic potion coming .. I think I will give him a tube, that he can put it on without me knowing .. lol .. but I feel bad for him ..

I woke up with a MEGA case of sciatica this morning, where I could hardly walk .. he asked what was wrong, and I told him sciatica .. he said "I'm going to have to learn some of these terms" .. I explained to him, that the sciatic nerve was the biggest nerve in the body .. and picture a pinched nerve .. the pain goes from just under my rib cage down my back, hip, butt, and down my leg .. and then he understood .. I told him that it does work itself out.. but sometimes it just takes longer .. It comes when I don't have that happy medium between sitting on my butt, and moving .. lol lol .. ...

I'm having troubles finding my "little goals" for 2018 .. I don't like to be generic .. because that can be misconstrued to accommodate the moment .. so I like to be more specific .. and I'm not quite sure what I will have control over .. in order to make the first few successful .. but still working on it .. and doing my reading around SP ... I will figure something out, but it's just not coming easy this year ..

Okay -- gotta get myself going.. so wishing everyone a great day ... and I'll be back later !! PROMISE !!!! There's still snow out there !!! mwaahaahaahaaahaahaaa

LAUNCH!!!!!!

SSSSPPPPLLLLAAAATTTT !!!!!!!! Who'd I get !!!!! ???

Have a great day .. now that I've started the trouble .. it's time for me to get going !!! lol lol lol Talk later!!!!!

Glad everyone is safe. I got some booties for Ladybug, two kinds, but I didn't like them. Someone at PetSmart said she gets baby booties and velcros them on. I might try that. I think he must have gotten a stray piece of salt on his foot, because when I took him around the yards in the snow last year he was fine. Just too much weird stuff on roads and sidewalks now.

I got gifted with tons of treats! Oh no! They all know my weakness! I'll have to figure out how to store it and dole it out over the coming year. I could get quite the sugar hangover. Tomorrow is back to normal life. I even remembered to put the trash out tonight.

SUCCESS!!!

Appeared like mom enjoyed the stuff we had ...KFC and cole slaw ... she left a good portion of her mashed taters and gravey...thinking they may not have been warm enough ..she likes her food temperature hot ...but she ate good ...

We played cards.. Kings in a corner and hubby played too .. that was fun ....

Hubby is taking her home now, and I left my truck outside so Hubby can pull it back in .. I cleaned up the kitchen and took the garbage out .. and it was cold out there ... so I'll leave it for hubby to pull in...lol...

Phyllis ... my dad had those booties for Hoots in her later years ... (she was a husky/schnauzer mix ... so a hairier breed as well and the ice and snow would accumulate on her little footses) ... they were a big help ... and she didnt fuss at all ... but daddy could have tied her in knots and she wouldnt have cared ...lol

As soon as I got the kitchen cleaned up .. I went upstairs and got into my comfies ... sweatshirt and snuggly PJ bottoms ... I was cold this afternoon ...now Im cozy ....

Hope everyone had a great day ...

Tomorrow Mr E and I are going to Potawatomi for lunch... and alittle playtime ... so not sure how much Ill be pooping.. er...popping in until later tomorrow ... just so you know I didnt bail...lol

Talk later ... sitting quuet and watching Carol Burnett marathon now....

Sally: Yes, today is a very good day to play house. Doing that here, too!

Phyllis: Hmmmm. . . Iíve used pork sausage, but never Italian sausage in my dressing. That sounds delicious! Going to try it.

Will Killer wear doggie boots?? Thatís what I had to do with Mr. Spot. He never liked it, but he limped along a lot less in snowy, cold weather.

Have a fantastic time w/your sister.

DH' dressing turned out fabulous. He put Italian sausage in it. I didn't know he had started doing that, but it makes a complete meal that way and was great for lunch today. Killer decided he likes turkey breast. And ate his supper all gone yesterday so I would give him some.

We went for our walk this morning but it is getting harder to pick a route that is not bad for his little paws. He started to limp a little so I picked him up and carried him for a bit so I could warm his feet and get the ice off. I just read something about needing to support his back legs when I pick him up so it is not hard on his spine. Wish I had known that when I had poor ladybug with her back trouble. Now I know why she would not let me pick her up. Poor baby.

Big sis is due to arrive soon, so you guys all have a wonderful day, and I will try to resist checking out our fresh snow. It was finally enough so the company came and shoveled for me, (or one of my neighbor elves). Nice Christmas present.
