Laura,

That is absolutely incredible to me. Even our techs down here in Plymouth know where to find things in CVS. For crying out loud. That person needs to get with it. Seriously. Glad I could give you that information or you may have been on that wild goose chase. For Peteís sake!!!

Dawn - after activity it drops but goes back up

Wanted to scream at the pharmacist though I asked where I could find them in the store OH you need to go to a medical equipment store and I said no you donít. Started out and googled pulse oximeter and then Walgreens was there so I hit locate and sure enough it said the store had 2-5 in stock. Showed the pharmacist and he said well I have no clue they wouldnít be over there that diabetes equipment and I said really because I can see blood pressure cuffs too! Sure enough there was a pulse oximeter actually three brands. I said first of all I donít know how long you have been a pharmacist BUT I strongly suggest YOU know what equipment IS IN your store before sending customers who are not well on a wild goose chase

Hey all,

Well, this is it for this year. Itís gone by waaaaay too fast. Way too fast.

Laura, I know youíre so hurt. It just rankles. You give and give and give and you get slapped for it!!! I am well aquainted with your pain and Iím sorry. All I can say is that you have moved on and it will take a very long time to heal from this. Maintain those supportive relationships but develop new relationships that will help you to heal. I speak from experience.
Yes, do get a pulse oximeter and use it. Especially when Colie is up and about. Says in the mid 80ís arenít good at all and he may need a little home O2 for a bit. Thatís a whole other can of worms Iím probably opening there.

Maryanne, I canít believe how quickly this year has gone by and that your niece has already been married a year. Holy smokes!!
I HAVE to get my house tidied up as well. Itís been in total disarray since Christmas. Itís just not easy to keep up with it when youíre sick.

Sue, stay safe out there today. Hoping you can get the groceries and get them delivered and be home before the craziness starts.

Janine, did you get your nap yesterday? Thanks for the well wishes on my schedule. Things will change once Bobby gets a new job. Heís still looking and looking and looking. He is a little low and demoralized right now. I feel really bad for him.

Well, Kateís dad is in the embassy at Baghdad. I have been chewing my nails off worried about him here. Everyone says theyíre safe right now but, geez Louise, this is beyond stressful. If those jokers get in there itís going to be mayhem. Please pray for Ed. Please and thank you.

Called in for on call this afternoon. Just wasnít feeling good by yesterday afternoon. Still not eating too well and lost another lb today. I guess thatís a plus right? Iím at my original goal now. So, I guess I can ever so slowly chip away at 5 more lbs and just leave it there. I donít want to go any lower than that. I have an athletic, muscular build and I just donít look good lower than 135lbs, or so Iím told. Itíll take awhile to get the last 5 off for sure. Weíll see how it goes.

Ok, going to putter and get just a few things done and then rest. Back to work tomorrow night.

Happy New year to you all.

Dawn

So glad to hear everyone seems to be on the mend! I was up a few times in the night but then slept in quite late today and I feel like I needed that.

Laura.....do watch your stomach and find ways to relieve that stress. It really is not good for you to be suffering so much. Give your worries to God. You know He has your back.

Dawn....I hope you will get through all those weekend shifts without a problem. It is my wish for you that you find a schedule that allows you the most amount of self-care possible! Glad Ollie is better!

Today I am hoping to complete the paper I started two days ago and get all of the holiday decorations put away. I do have a few presents still to get out. Tomorrow we will have lunch with my niece, Alyssa, her husband, and my nephew, Mitchell. Then I have a couple of boxes to ship out, 1 to Texas, 1 to New York, and maybe 1 to CT if I cannot connect with my niece.

Tonight we are having my favorite meal of the year - all apps! Nothing else planned so we will stay home and maybe watch a movie.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

- It's Janine!

HI all

Dawn - I do NOT have a ox meter BUT getting one today - his was pretty dang low upon exertion at the hospital - down to 85 - but bounced up to 93-95 when resting.

Colie has viral pneumonia - they believe 7 days on the augmentin and 5 days of steroids should help - he is wheezy - AND they doctors told me next time just call the hospital man number and ask for the Fellow pulmonologist on call and they can always send prescriptions in - does not have a temp so that is where we are with that -

As for me my stomach or colon whichever just is a tad cranky - I am eating and drinking I think mine is stress and more stress

We leave for Hawaii in 25 days! I am packed in my mind

Zeus is doing well and very happy to be honest - doesn't even want to get up early either - if i get up to the bathroom at 7:30 he looks at me and rolls over LOL - he is quite the smuggler and love bug - so playful - he will have to adjust to his wild household of a 7th grader 5th grader and all their noise and commotion going to school and everyone working - he will be lonely too no one at home for him during the day

We are staying in tonight - I sas planning a jammie day BUT I have got to pick up a prescription though and it I dont pick it up today it will be $700 or actually $400 out of my pocket for the first one because of the new calendar year.

Got a call from the chair lift guys they are installing the new chair lift at church on Friday - I WONT BE THERE (of course) but someone else will be - wonder if anyone will send a thank you note to us - after all we helped get it there and paid for half! OH well - I did hear from a couple of my teens - they miss me and one set of grandparents BOTH emailed me - one thanking me for ALL the wonderful items that the teens collected BRAND NEW for the church clothing room - I estimate we had about $1500 easy of underwear, socks, shirts toiletries and such and said I was a good example for the teens to be God's Ambassadors - hmm you want to tell that to the ELDERS who have STILL not told me WHY I have to change my lesson plans and keep those Ambassadors in corporate worship when they are doing SOOOO much good teaching the younger ones etc - OK I will stop now - and the grandma said she just misses us sitting in front on them and hearing me sing - OH WELL not one reply for the photos I sent out of the teens and their donation on the church website or the FB page hmmm guess I will never know

My therapist and I discussed this at length - she said "you know I am all about tlalking things out but these parents who started the problem who want to talk to you face to face SHOULD have respected your rules and programs and come to you first instead of causing what is now to me a "heartbreak" for you and the kids. Normally I would say talk to them but I cannot justify what has been done to you and agree talking is not an option several apologies are!"

As i sadi we are staying g in all my food is made and ready to just warm up i the crock pots and I have told my adopted Beth is who is not feeling well she needs to stay away so it will be us with Ross and Christina - and another first without my Dad . sigh THAT other than Valentines Day is all I have left for the firsts

Encore has several things for me this week - I passed on the New Years eve overnight, dinner in the Picasso ballroom with a live band etc - and will pass on exert free slot play Saturday - heading in Sunday for a new jacket though - I am getting several types of jackets this month and going to try to go get them all!

Today a quiet day but I think I Might tackle another one of of my Mom's recipes - she made a soft molasses cookie with raisins so that might be fun - yesterday I did her sweet and sour meatballs - taste great BUT I think I am going to tweak the recipe for the meatballs and add maybe some soy and ginger to the meatball mix - any of my chefs out there got any suggestions how to add to the flavor profile on them

HAVE A SAFE NEW YEAR'S EVE and

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL

Morning all,

Ok, so decorations are all still up. Decided yesterday that I was enjoying them too much to take down and will keep them up till probably Sunday? Going to spend this morning cleaning up the spare room which pretty much looks like a bomb went off in there. Then I need to do some work on the porch. Nothing much on tap for this evening. We have 5:00 dinner reservations at an Italian place here in Dedham and that's it. I plan to quietly ring in the new year most likely already asleep in bed. Today is my niece's 1 yr wedding anniversary! WOW - can't believe how fast that went by AND that she's expecting a baby in 2 months!

Hope everyone is finally starting to feel better.
Dawn - so glad you are going to call in sick and get that extra rest!
Laura - I hope Colie is feeling a little better and I see from FB you plan to stay put tonight. Hope it's quiet and enjoyable for you.
Janine / Sue / Elizabeth - any good plans?

I will be creating a new Daily Chat (with Daily spelled right :) ) and hope to continue chatting with my spark family/friends for another year.

Wishing you all a very good day today to close out 2019 and a Very Happy New Year!

If you are going out tonight - please be very careful driving - there will be a lot of party goers on the road...Ö..

Maryanne

Hey all,

What kind of weather is this really? Rain, ice mix. Great b/c I HAVE to go out today. My gas tank is empty and there are groceries I have to pick up.

Maryanne, Iím leaving my decor up until next week when I have some time to take it all down. Everything except the snowmen, which you all know by now stay up until March. Thatíll be here before you know it.

Janine, I hope youíre able to make a dent in your homework either before or after your nap. Glad itís just rain out your way.

Sue, where ever you have to go today, please be careful.

Laura, let us know how Colie is. Iím a little worried.

Ollie is 100% better. Iím just starting to eat real food. Still didnít have much yesterday aside from soup. Just couldnít. I am totally rehydrated now and the scale is just where I want it for now until I start working out again. Probably not until the New Year. My schedule is really screwed up for a couple of weeks. A friend of mine wanted a switch so Iím working some part of almost every weekend in Jan!!! Blah. Not fun but Iíll get threw it.
Just have to tidy the house up, do laundry, go get gas and groceries. Iím supposed to be on call tomorrow but am going to take a sick day just to make sure Iím totally better and rested and donít end up sick again. Iíve been killing myself to be there b/c I always think I should be and I totally ignored the fact that I was feeling like garbage. New Year resolution? Not going to do that this year.
Stayed up til 5am reading Jodi Picoultís ďSmall Great ThingsĒ. It was that good. Now Iím all screwed up time wise.

Ok, everyone stay warm and dry as possible. Have a good day.

Dawn

Morning all,

Last night was really fun! Jacob had a blast! Dinner was great and I sent all the leftovers home with Kenny. Annnnnnnnnd it's all done. There is one gift remaining under my tree and that will be delivered on Saturday when I go to my friend's house for her party. This morning I have been busy cleaning. I have one final load of laundry in the dryer, sheets changed, and I made a sauce for the leftover chicken and then made some linguine. Packaged up 3 meals with that and then steamed up some carrots, packaged up leftover gumbo and froze that and just about have the fridge all cleared out. Also got on the scale and OMG can't even discuss that so back on track tomorrow. No regrets and I will move forward. Goal set to lose at least 6 lbs in January. Then I remembered my niece's baby shower is the 11th so got online and ordered her gifts and had them shipped directly to DC so that's off the checklist. Next up I will bring the boxes upstairs to start taking down the Christmas stuff - still not sure when I will do it because now I'm sort of enjoying it! ha ha ha.

Janine - glad you are feeling better and yes, I vote nap!
Dawn - praying you are starting to feel better and Ollie too!
Laura - still praying all goes well at Colie's appointment today
Sue - do be careful driving today. We only have rain but my friend in Pittsfield said her street is a sheet of ice!
Elizabeth - where are you?? Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Ok, I have to get back to work here. Have a great day and be careful if you have to go out!

Maryanne

Sue...I am glad you have the option to work from home. It is just wet here, but who knows what the day will bring. I am enjoying the day with Elvis getting some cleaning and homework done. I am going to bet we'll nap too.

Dawn.....I hope you are feeling better today! That is scary to be that sick and dehydrated. And Ollie too?! Goodness it is scary for him.

Laura...how is Colie? I know you have an appointment later for him. Fingers crossed that it goes well.

Maryanne....how was dinner?

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Hey all,

Oh gosh Laura, I know that you already know that if Colie gets worse that you need to get him right in. Do you have a pulse oximeter? You can get them at CVS, Target, Walmart, the grocery store and just about anywhere. A good one does not run you much $$$ and it will give you the heart rate as well as the oxygen level. Hope he is feeling better soon.
Glad you got your phone back. That is scary to think of.

Sue, I hope you donít have to work during the bad weather. Be safe if you do. Have you gotten your car fixed yet?

Up and about today but very punky. This bug just does not want to let go. Am just going to putter but not push today. Still trying to get hydrated. I must have been very dehydrated b/c my lips are dry and there are other symptoms that indicate I am still dry. Hoping to turn it around by tomorrow. Stayed home from church today. Just a laid back day and taking it really easy.

Hoping you all stay well and warm. Have a good day.

Dawn

I was under the weather with my stomach Christmas night - Colie has had sort of sniffles and cough - he seems OK yesterday and we went to the casino last night for the launch party of the Platinum card group - WOW is all I got to say

Played one machine and hit big and BIGGER

Lost my phone - came home and got find my phone and we took it back to the casino BUT the problem was it said we were STANDING or sitting in the area of where it was loath BUT couldn't find it - came home and then firstling this AM I pinged it and 2 seconds later I got a call from it! Had set it up from my iPad This phone is lost please call this number and the =n your press the button on MY PHONE - so I got a call and said THANK YOU for finding my phone - so we went over and there was a giveaway picked that up and I had soooo many comp dollars we had a lovely breakfast -

I am noticing Colie a bit more short of breath tonight an I am wondering if he is allergic to Zeus

Yesterday he had a bit of a productive cough - today nothing but again I see him out of wind a bit more - I COULD bring him to the ER BUT BUT BUT with all the flu going around NOT the nest choice so - he has no temp - just a bit if at all a cough, and just a wee bit short of breath so I will see how tomorrow goes - and hopefully I will be able to call on Monday to get him seen

Zeus had to go to the Vets too with issues so while he was under sedation they did all his annual tests too so that is all set for his Mom - honestly that dog is adorable but can be problematic NOT his fault but when we are not feeling well it is harder to take care of him

Made meatballs for New years eve - one kind and I will make another kind on Monday or Tuesday am

Stay warm all and watch out for the storm coming in tomorrow night

Laura

Maryanne, we all need days to get nothing done. Pull the plug on all of the activity and just chillax. Itís rebooting ourselves and getting some much needed rest after all of the chaos of the holidays. I never feel bad about taking a day like that. Enjoy

Sue...I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Dawn and Janine...I really hope that the two of you get some much needed rest tonight and feel better soon. Dawn same for Ollie. Really hope your entire family feels better soon.

Well my next celebration is on hold till 3:00 tomorrow. So my only accomplishment today was talking a shower. I literally sat on the couch the entire day and did nothing. Talked on the phone most of the morning and watched movies all afternoon......a complete waste of a day. Oh well....I'll try to be more accomplished tomorrow.

Hey all,

Oh Sue, Iím sorry to hear about your friend. Itís hard. Iím still trying to wrap my head around the loss of our friend in NC. It still doesnít seem real to me. I want to call his wife in a couple of weeks to see if she just wants to talk things out. Sheís not much of a talker but this might be a little different for her.

Maryanne, I hope the last of your get togethers comes together nicely for you. I canít believe your Teddy is a year old already. Our Teddy is 7 months old and weighs a lb less than his brother did at a year!!!! Big, big boy. Cute as anything though.

Janine, Iím glad you got seen at the clinic and that youíre starting to feel the effects of the cortisol already. Itís great for opening airways. Take it easy and donít stress yourself. I know you want to get those papers done.

Laura and Elizabeth, I hope all is well with you both.

I ended up leaving work last night around 2am. I got SO sick. I mean sick. I have to contact my doctor for some more Zofran b/c that was the only thing that made me stop vomiting. I had the one dose left and I took it after round 4 or 5 when I couldnít stand it anymore. I was SO dehydrated when I woke up that I could barely stand up and I was almost 5 lbs lighter on the scale. Thatís a lot of fluid loss. It was not pretty at all. Finally hauled myself out of bed around 3:30pm and am not doing anything at all. Am staying home from church tomorrow just so I donít give this to anyone else. I should be feeling much better by then....I hope. The blood sugars wee pretty high, in the mid 200ís, and I had some trace ketones on my chem strips so Iím just really focusing on hydrating right now. That and resting. The last time I felt this weak was in 2013 when I was septic. Seriously, I could have stayed in bed but I needed to get up to get my insulin. Bobby has been handling everything else here.

Ollie ended up going to the hospital for fluids and zofran as well. Thatís pretty scary to me. Heís only 3!!!

Ok, I hope you all have a wonderful night and that no one else I know or love gets sick!!!

Dawn

Sue...I am sorry for the loss of your friend! Sending you thoughts of peace during this tough time.

Maryanne....I hope the celebration today goes well! Happy Birthday Teddy! I am glad you got time with Lyndsay as well as having a nice holiday.

Dawn...so sorry about all the sickness! I pray everyone is better soon.

Apparently it is the time to be sick. I have had this cough about a week or so and finally went to the walk-in yesterday. Apparently half of New England had the same idea because I was there 3 1/2 hours! No pneumonia thankfully but it is bronchitis. They prescribed prednisone. I asked for the shot along with pills. The shot just acts so much quicker, despite the fact that is hurts like heck. I am thankful I was able to sleep last night a bit better. Heading to CVS soon to grab the script. Then onto homework and I am assuming a nap later. I have a bit of a headache today, although I am not coughing nearly as much.

Bad weather is coming....get your milk and bread!

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

- It's Janine!

Morning all,

Happy 1st birthday to my Teddy! A whole year...ÖÖ.just flew by.

Another day here, another Christmas to celebrate. Waiting to hear from Kenny on what time they are planning to come over. Sort of irritates me that he couldn't give me a definite time last night (ok it really irritates me). I'm not asking for much...Ö..an hour or two of their lives to come and celebrate. Sigh, sorry, just tired from all the running around and I'm tired of chasing people around trying to get plans in place.

Going to try to do a little cleaning up / organizing this morning and then need to talk a walk to the post office to mail my deposit for the house in Old Orchard! Once I know what the plans for our celebration are I can decide what to do for food. One good thing is that Karen may now be available so that will be nice if she can also join us.

Anyway, hope you all have a great day and that people are starting to feel a little better.

Hey all...Ö..

Yesterday was a bit chaotic. First my brother ended up in urgent care because he was feeling so crappy. They thought it was just a cold but his wife was taking NO chances. Sure enough (thank God) it was just a cold but he was not up for all of us coming to their house AND Annabel has not had any shots yet so we weren't really thrilled about her being around a sick person. Long story short - everyone ended up coming to my house......all worked out in the end but yikes - I had an hour to get my house in order and whatnot. We had a wonderful time but I was sad my brother along with Caroline (niece)/Matt and Teddy were all missing from our gathering. We'll all regroup again on Jan 11th for Julia's baby shower and now Teddy's first birthday celebration. Julia said she would be honored to share the day with him. :) Now I'm trying to get Kenny/Jacob here tomorrow to celebrate and that will wrap up Christmas for me. Just got home from the mall where I spent the day with my cousin's and Lyndsey - she heads back to CO tomorrow. Sigh, it went by way too fast. For now, I just changed into comfy clothes and I plan to spend the rest of this day on the couch!

Dawn - praying your family all feels better very soon. I'm so sorry you have to work feeling lousy......please take care of yourself.

Have a good night all.

Maryanne

Hey all,

Seriously gloomy day here. Bobby is sick and Jon is at the hospital b/c he is vomiting. Ollie was up all night vomiting and I wasnít doing so well yesterday. Slept almost 12 hrs and I have to work tonight. Hoping I donít end up in the ED myself. Oi veí!

Janine, the food sounds really wonderful although I donít know what 1/2 of it is. Maybe the flan, although I canít say Iíve ever eaten flan before. It looks custardish so I think I would love it but, Iíve just never made or ordered any.

Sue, a nice, relaxing Christmas sounds nice as well. I do enjoy all of the kids being here though. I just love having my family here.

Worried about Jon right now. Offered to take him to the hospital but he drove himself and left the kids home with Kate. Kateís probably worried as well. Iíll check on him when I get done here. If I have to go there and throw my weight around itís not going to be pretty.

Hoping tonight is not horrible. I dread going in now. Iíll talk to you all sometime tomorrow. Hoping everyone has a nice night tonight.

Dawn

What a busy last few days. We hosted Kate, my dad, and Kate's "friend" on Christmas Eve. I made rib roast for the first time along with latkes. Then it was our annual family breakfast at my niece's house. After a bit of a nap, we had Christmas dinner with the same group of as the night before. I made a sauce with braciola along with a pork roast. I cheated and bought mashed potatoes and served frozen broccoli. I also had bought a tres leche torta (my daughter's favorite cake) and flan. It was a great whirlwind of food and fun. Today my great niece, Alexi, convinced me to go to Barnes & Noble and Spare Time (a gaming place). We had lunch at the mall and she bought herself new sneakers and a water bottle. It was a great day. I am still fighting a cold so I was pretty tired when I got home. Leftovers for dinner was ideal. Now I am just waiting for a decent time so I can get into bed for the night. Hopefully this cold goes away soon. I hate the idea of spending the entire vacation sick. Although, I would rather be home sick than at work.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

- It's Janine!

Hey all,

It looks like it could snow but it would have to be colder. Thatís ok. I appreciate being able to go out without throwing on boots and gloves.

I hope everyone had a good day yesterday. Maryanne, it sounds like Christmas is extended for you this year. Thatís fun. Youíll be exhausted going into the new year though. Gosh.

Laura, I hope you had a wonderful birthday and a really blessed and peaceful Christmas. I hope and pray that 2020 is a much better year for you and your family. Praying for an end to the chaos.

Sue, did you go anywhere for Christmas or did you just relax at home with hubby and Lily?

Elizabeth, I hope you are able to chime in soon and we can hear allllll about what youíve been up to.

Janine, how was your Christmas this year? Did you go anywhere or have anyone over?

It was TOTAL chaos here this year. I mean chaos!!! But, we all had a good time and the food from Whole Foods plus what we all made was fantastic. Clean up was still a bit of a process but, we got it done....after a nap in the family room. Bobby and I both crashed on the couches until about 1:30 am and then we got up and cleaned the kitchen and all of the boxes and trash went out. We were in real bed by 2 or 3 am. I didnít really look at the clock.
Today Iím back to low carb after a day of feasting on anything my heart desired. Funny, the sweets werenít as good as I thought theyíd be. Anywho, back at it today and hoping I can fit in a work out. Thinking about calling in for tomorrow if Iím not feeling rested. Weíll see. Itís been brutal there lately and Iím exhausted from the schedule and the holidays. I could use a rest for sure. Donít want to go into the new year feeling wiped out.
This year sure did go by quickly and I know the next year will as well. With Jon and Kate moving to WI June will arrive much too quickly for my liking. I am hoping they donít stay out there for too long.

Well, I best get a move on. Just a few things to get done today. One of them being cleaning the chicken coop and putting fresh bedding out there for them. The really cold weather will be coming and I want their coops to be comfy for them.

You all enjoy your day and get some rest.

Dawn

Good Morning all

Hope everyone had a nice day yesterday...Ö...for me, it's Christmas all over again today. Will be heading to my brother's house around noon to have my family Christmas. Should be a fun day and highlighted by the fact that Annabel is coming! Yay! I haven't seen her in over 2 weeks so looking forward to it! Also looking forward to finally getting a lot of presents out from under my tree! After today I still have one more Christmas with Kenny/Jacob. Need to get that figured out today. Hoping we can do tomorrow night so Karen can join us. I'll talk to Kenny in a little while to see what he says. Gotta say, the 3 days of celebrations is exhausting but fun!

Hope everyone has a good day today.

Maryanne

Sue....how was the getaway?

Hey all,

Happy Birthday to Laura. Please try not to think about all of the stuff that has happened at church on your birthday. There is nothing you can do to change any of it so, let it go and enjoy your day. You have been grieving over so many things for so long and now this is just another grief added to the list. You are a very special person and you have a really big heart. Itís very easy to get crushed when your heart is so big. I pray that this is a good and happy day for you in spite of all that is going on around you. Remember where your help and your strength comes from. He will carry you.

Maryanne, I hope Teddy is home from the hospital for good and that he is doing much better now. You have been super busy but I have no doubt you have finished it all on time. Way to go. Seriously. The food sounds super good.

Elizabeth, I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas. Iím sure youíre busier than ever right now and hope we can hear allllll about it after the holidays.

Sue, have a wonderful holiday with your family....and with Lily. I love the name.

Work was an absolute nightmare the other night. I absolutely could not keep up with my assignment at all. It was just too much. I was literally running from room to room. Running. I never got to sit down and eat dinner. Fortunately I had some snacks with me that I popped into my mouth when I could take a second to do so. I clocked out ďno lunchĒ, which I never do but I did yesterday morning.
Back tonight and then 2 nights off. My left foot is killing me. Throbbing. Iím not limping though so thatís good. Am going to demand a lighter assignment tonight and am not taking no for an answer. I am also going to refuse to do charge. Iím sick of them heaping things up on me. That job on the IV team is starting to look pretty good to me!!!

Ok, apple pie in the oven. I have to get snacks ready for tonight and clean the downstairs bathroom. Dinner is at 4pm tomorrow so I get to sleep a few hours before the chaos begins. That will be a huge treat for me to not have to try to stay vertical after working 12+hours.

I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed holiday with family and friends. A very Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate it. God bless.

Dawn

Morning all

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA!!!!! Put aside all the stress and issues and enjoy your day!

Janine - WHOA! That's unbelievable! OMG what a mess the school has and I will be interested in seeing how they plan to rectify this situation. Praying it all works out for you - you've come so far and do not need this stress on top of everything

Sue - Have a fabulous day today and I hope it's not too crazy for you!

Dawn - What is your work schedule for Christmas? Praying you somehow have managed to get some time off to spend with the family.

Elizabeth - when do you leave for the Cape? Are you going tonight or tomorrow morning?

I've been up since 4:30 this morning. Baked brownies and they are all wrapped and ready to deliver to my two neighbors (at a more reasonable hour). Bathroom cleaned, floor washed, rugs vacuumed. The only thing left to do is organize my spare room a little better and then make the mac & cheese and cook the baked ziti and ham. I'm working at the kitchen island this morning and only have one call. Plan to log off by 11:30. So I'll make the mac & cheese next. Then at 11:30 I have to run to the store for bread/rolls and will pop the baked ziti in the oven to cook. Then it will only be a matter of warming it up later because I will need to put the ham in by like 3:30. So still plenty to do while pretending to work! ha ha ha ha ha ha

Have a fabulous day all. Happy Christmas Eve!

Maryanne

Feeling a bit better today. I went and had a massage this morning and then an hour in the office to get ahead for a bit. That was successful thankfully. Had a nice lunch with an old friend and then did some meat shopping with my daughter and her new friend. Later Mario and I will go finish up grocery shopping. It should be good. I do feel better and not as tired.

I haven't told you all the most startling news. Some of you may remember that my college advisor/professor quit a couple of months back and I have been working with a new one whom I like very much. The original one indicated that the new college president was making changes and that she didn't agree with the direction the college was taking the program. Sadly between Thursday and Saturday ALL of the remaining advisors/professors resigned! The college has sent out 2 emails trying to reassure us that it will be okay. How the heck can it be okay when the very advisors we have worked so closely with over years are no longer guiding us???!!! What will that mean for us?! Apparently we have a meeting with the college on January 18th to get information and have our questions answered. UGH! More stress to deal with. No wonder I am sick.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

- It's Janine!

Saturday we went to the casino for the special "high limit" free 6 spins got nothing on the first 5 BUT the last got got me 7's with diamonds and I got $430 THEN i REALLY did well on a couple of machines

TODAY I got an gorgeous invitation from Encore for a special party on Friday night, a gift and other perks because I am now a Platinum member! Christina will watch Zeus and we are headed over - you know I earn my ranking their and perks and I know they need to be nice to me BUT I truly appreciate it all

Again barraged with emails from church we told the pastor we were not sitting down and discussing this with anyone - NO one wanted to follow the rules after they were informed multiple times, blew up the Sunday Funday event and WHOMEVER is NOW enforcing "corporate worship time" which the teens o=get but miss the sermon twice a month if THEY ARE teaching/mentoring jr church - and WHY after 10 years of my teaching and FOUR years of movie Bible studies am I being forced to change my already approved lesson plans for 2019-2020

They did announce an emergency meeting of the elders yesterday - hmmm

Colie and I got through the day - the teens were blue and you could tell their heart was JUST not into anything - we had a great little party for what it was worth - they loved their presents

That mom came over and wished me a Merry Christmas and I gave her a hug and said Merry Christmas back - i know she felt bad and I have no idea what they said BUT SOMETHING happened in their meeting that started this WHOLE MESS - she feels bad BUT I relinquished my postition in defending the teens - THEY DO KNOW THE TRUTH

Colie and I headed to my parents grave and rehashed all the events of the last two months - I reid and cried at the grave - sent photos to my sisters with the lovely wreaths that Wreath Across America put on ALL the graves - gorgeous and my my parents only ONE - the youngest one replied - HOINESTLY I dont think the understand the depth of my grief and NO they dont have too but they could have responded

Managed to get some sleep - sent an email out to my church dad and mentor who has done such a 180 on me I cannot believe this is all happening BUT thanked him for his love and support, told him where I left the keys, the copy of the flash drive of all the work, the Sexual abuse manual I revamped with the insurance company - who is trained in Child safety et
let him know we had a coulee of mice in the office and chit chat but have NOT heard back from him either
SOOO I am wondering what happened at that meeting if anything about me!

So today I have cried - the teens are texting me and they are so sweet! checking to see how I am doing - they are all saying they miss me already I keep telling them I am still here but not THERE

Enough of my sadness time to get th final scratch tickets for the stockings

We are filling my Dad's stocking with tickets and going to split whatever is in there if he wins

Opting NOT to have our Christmas brunch in the dining room but just breakfast at the table

Zeus arrived tomorrow night

ENJOY THE WARM WEATHER ALL

Good morning and a happy Monday to you all.

Weather is supposed to be close to 50 today so that will be nice for a change! Just trying to do some light cleaning here this morning and hopefully the work day will be quiet.

Janine - hope you are feeling a little better this morning.

Have a great day all.

Evening all,

Janine - I pray you don't get too sick. Stay hydrated and get as much rest as you can! UGH, what a week to be saying that with all the normal running crazy...Ö.take care.

Laura - hope the day went as well as it could. I'm sure it was a tough one......

I blew off all my 'duties' today. Didn't clean, didn't finish cooking......ran a couple errands this morning and then ended up having lunch with my cousins and then we did shopping for Christmas dinner and then I don't know what happened. We got back to Aggie's and then started chatting and boom, day gone! So I'll have to do stuff early tomorrow morning before work and then at lunchtime. Going over Karen's tomorrow night as her nephew is arriving tomorrow (Army). Oh and another cool thing, my friend that just got married - her nephew (Marines) surprised his mother by showing up at her door yesterday! So that was really awesome. Anyway...Ö..now I have lots to somehow accomplish so tomorrow will be one of those days where it 'pays' to work from home. (wink wink)

Have a good night all.

Maryanne

I am officially sick. It happens often for me to get to this time of year and then get sick. UGH! I am super tired, but thankful the coughing isn't too bad. I hope it stays that way. I will be resting as much as I can.

Evening all - not sure where this day went?? I got 2 extra large trays of lasagna made - one with hot sausage and one with hamburger, a large pot of sauce and about 70 meatballs. Never got the mac & cheese or the baked ziti made - guess I'll be doing that tomorrow morning. I got some cleaning done but the rest will also have to be done in the morning.....oh well. Just don't have it in me to do anything else tonight so I'm going to sit and relax and watch a nice Christmas Movie Maybe I'll put White Christmas on.

Hang in there Laura...ÖÖ.
Welcome back Sue - hope the trip was wonderful and I'm sure Lily is VERY happy to have her mom back home.

Morning all...Ö..

Janine - glad you didn't have to deal with it AND that you got so much done!! January - new month/new year.

Sue - BRRRRRRRRR now THAT'S chilly. But glad you are having a nice time.

Dawn - hoping you got some sleep and was able to finish everything up?

Laura - Sending hugs and prayers as you prepare for tomorrow. I'm sure it will be a most difficult day.

Elizabeth - where are you? Running crazy I assume?

My sister in law was hopeful Teddy would be getting out of the hospital yesterday afternoon but I haven't heard whether or not it happened. She sent us a picture of him and he looks so much better. We'll all be sad not to have them with us but yeah, his health is far more important.

I woke up very early today and tried so hard to go back to sleep but alas, Finally got up at 5:30. Going to do some quick organizing / cleaning around here and then start cooking. Sauce and meatballs first followed by 2 trays of lasagna and a tray of baked ziti and a tray of macaroni and cheese. After that I may do some baking. Lyndsey arrived safely last night and hoping she'll stop by later today if she has time. If not, I'll see her tomorrow for sure.

Ok, those meatballs aren't going to roll themselves so time to get moving here.

Have a good day all.

I realized I didn't post yesterday. My meeting got rescheduled! It was such an amazing gift to not have to deal with them before the holiday break! I know I will have to have the meeting in January, but it was great to not have it done yesterday. I was able to get a lot done and have nothing on my desk that is pending. I will go in over the break and work on some meeting invites, but that will be a half day to get myself ahead.

Laura...how incredibly frustrating for you! Are you packing and getting ready for the move? I hope things are resolved very soon for you and Colie.

Maryanne....I am glad Teddy will be out of the hospital even if he can't be around the family. Video chat! Share the day with him in some way.

Sue....stay warm and enjoy your time away.

Dawn....you all ready for the holidays?

Elvis and I are going to nap now. I am ready for the vacation for sure.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

- It's Janine!

Oh Laura - what a mess with the condo. Good for you for telling them OH WELL - 3/1...Ö.. I can't believe they've done nothing - oh wait, yes I can! Sigh. As for that 'mother' - ya, a little too late with her supposed kind words - she can live with the consequences of what her family did by not following the rules. Just so sick and tired of these people that feel they are entitled to do what they want and when they want. Completely disrupt everyone else's lives...

SO, the final decision has been made. Teddy will NOT be coming for Christmas. The infectious disease team cleared him but because his system is still so weak his regular doctor advised against him coming here and being exposed to all the other kids. If any of those kids pass germs to him he may not be strong enough to fight it and we do NOT want that. SO alas, our little boy will stay in CT. I'm sad but totally understand why - I'll just have to make a point of going to CT in January to visit him!

Just finished my last call of the day and I think I may log off at 3:00. :)
