HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYBODY!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am dressed as a pirate for work today and then taking both my nephews out on Sat. morning to different areas, that are having things, instead of that night. Our local Chick-fil-a is having a fall festival, the local City Hall is having one, and the place called The Beach, It's the local place for families to hang out, they are having something as well. I would rather them be out during the day than at night. I am sure they are going to get TONS of stuff during the day, so i am not too worried about that. Hope everyone is well, and enjoy he festivities.
Welcome November, it's TURKEY TIME!!! emoticon

Well, here we are ready to wrap up another month! October sort of flew by like a witch on a broomstick! LOL Had to use a little Halloween humor.

Anyone dressing up at work? Going trick-or-treating?

It still amazes me that i think in some life somewhere, we are twins. They say you have a twin somewhere in the world. I am sorry that you too are having problems with it as bad as i am. Man i wish they could find a cure, like some other things. I know that is being selfish, but somedays i want to sit and eat a pizza, or a big ole salad, and not be sick for a second.
Work is still causing me grief. My one part time person, i wish she would quit and make it easier for all that have to work with her. She has a full time job elsewhere and does not need to work here. I have some apps coming my way this week, so that should be fun. I am like you GRRRR!!!! to keeping everything together.

I got in Sat. evening about midnight from my little side business and went to bed about 1a.m. and i slept until about 11:30 on Sunday. Sleep seems to be the things for me as well. The more i sleep, the more receptive my body is on eating and everything else. Funny how in my 20's, i didn't need to sleep and now that i am older, i feel like i can't get enough sleep.
We will keep pushing on, and keep praying. Hope things go well for you this week. Take Care.

Eileen

Eileen,
Great to hear you made the trip back safe and sound and that Bobby's dad is doing better. I'm sorry to hear your GP is giving you a lot of grief also.

I've hired 2 people, one has already started but I'm not sure about him. The other one starts on Wednesday and I have a good feeling about her. And now the worker who has been there the longest is acting up! There's just not enough of me to go around. I can't hire, train and pacify everyone at one time. Grrrrr!

So yeah, GP is really bad. I'm not getting much of anywhere with the domerpidone. My HMO won't cover it so I'm paying for it 100% and I'd rather save my $$ on the other Rxs I absolutely have to have.

I've been trying to get at least 30 minutes of bike riding in every day, and trying to watch what I eat, but it's not making me feel any better. Sleep is the only thing that makes me feel better, especially since I'm not getting a lot of it during the week. I also have restless leg syndrome and it's spreading to my arms and hands. It's getting harder to hide the shakiness of my hands when I'm at work.

Other than that, life is just peachy. {grin} I managed to lose almost 2.5 pounds this week and that was nice. Seems like when I'm stressed the weight doesn't want to come off no matter how good I am with the exercise or diet. But then again I'm scarfing down carbs for every meal.

Things will get better for both of us. I'm sure about that. I just wish it'd happen sooner rather than later! LOL

Hope you have a great weekend!
Hugs,
Lucky

Lucky,
Thanks for the good thoughts, we returned last night and he is doing much better. Just wanted to shake us up a bit i guess. lol lol...
I think in another work life we were twins, i had the exact same thing happen, sort of, mine didn't walk off, she dropped to 1 day a week,after being full time and trying to find a replacement,do interviews,look over job applications, worrying about Bobby's daddy,everything has mine in OVERLOAD!!! I have been sick since Sunday and nothing is working. Just need to take a day and slow down.
Hope things get better for you and will keep good thoughts flowing your way.
Eileen

Eileen,

Sorry to hear your DBF's dad is in the hospital. Hope he gets to feeling better soon.

Like you, I'm really happy about it being fall, but things are almost as hectic, busy and crazy as it was this summer. Usually work is mellowing out by now, but after having a worker walk off the job, trying to hire "just the right people," (is there any such thing?!), and then training, my GP is flaring also.

Eileen, hope you have a safe trip there and back. I'll sending out prayers, positive thoughts and hugs!

Lucky

YAY!! IT'S OFFICIALLY FALL!!!!
Ladies,
I am headed to Ohio in the morning, 10-3-09, for the DBF's dad, he is having a really hard time right now and is back in the hospital. We are not stopping to eat, just potty and having GP and everything, this is not going to be fun, it is an 11 hr. drive. Eating is going to be a disaster!!!
Keep sending good thoughts, i am going to need it and we will be back on Tuesday!! Thanks gang!!
