Sure you can take credit for the hiking! I'm sure his better diet helped a lot!

Feel better soon, Leslie.

Daisy knows that the spare bathroom is "her" room, and she'll come across the counter to be petted. But that's about the only place she'll approach me. It will take time for her to get to be a pet-type cat (I hope it does happen!), but she seems to be pretty comfortable being here. That's a step in the right direction.

Gail, I love that commercial! The admin assistant at work and I both walk around saying that "Hey ev'rybody, ya know what day it is? C'mon, do you know what day it is?" Cracks me up, but I'm easily entertained!

I'm working remotely from home today. There's not a lot on my desk to do at work, and I have full remote access to my computer from my laptop at home so I guess I'm working on an employee handbook.

My face is less puffy and I'm rinsing and swishing my mouth with hot salt water regularly (hard to do at a desk), but I feel icky. My gums are irritated and itchy, and my face is still sore where it's puffy. But still the broken tooth feels just fine!! Haven't scheduled the extraction yet, and I still don't have results back on Whiskey's mass.

I'm going to nap today and putter. Might go play with some art supplies too. As long as my remote desktop is active I COULD be working, right?? I can tell my mental state is better but my body is not liking this infection stuff...

I so wish it was Friday. . .got no painting done last night- the door was like plumbing, a job that was supposed to take 2 hours took 5. Everytime I tried to do anything else, he'd ask for help. I was dangerously close to losing it when at 8 he turned on the bloody music. I am not a music fan and if it's on, I like it quiet. My nerves were shot and teeth on edge by the time I got to bed at 10:15 since I still had picking up and my normal routine to do. My kids are coming tonight so I'll put them to work a little while I make their dinner and I'll boot them out at 8:00.

The vein doc said that I have to have both legs done because the valves in the femoral vein are both shot. It's done under local anesthesia and Xanax- I'm not especially worried aobut it but I'm not fond of needles and that is the part that gets me the most. On the bright side, I'll be able to wear shorts again! Weather permitting of course, this is SE AK!

Struggling to get through another day of agony at work. I'm a morning person and all my good energy is wasted here-sigh. Nothing else going on here.

not much happening for me, but, my dh has alot going on. firstly, since i do all the grocery shopping and cooking (and badgering) i am going to take credit for this emoticon his dr took him off one of his diabetes meds (repaglinide?). he still has to take metformin. he started out with the 2 diabetes meds and a statin. now he's down to one prescription only. he isn't totally wheat free. when he eats out, he eats sandwiches or toast. but, he doesn't eat it at home, so, he has cut back alot. our carbs are way lower than they used to be.
also (i can't take credit for this), he has started hiking again and hiking quite a bit. i can't go with him cuz i have a bum ankle and it's the rare day i can go for a long walk (i miss this so much)
also yesterday he had his 4 front teeth on the top removed. right now he has false teeth to put in there and then soon he will have permanent implants put in. he won't let me take a picture to send to his sister though emoticon i think he is in quite a bit of discomfort. he's still in bed. he was pretty stoned last night on percoset and advil and i haven't talked to him today to find out how he's doing.
one thing he has complained about with all the hiking, yard work and better eating habits is that he hasn't lost any weight. i just looked up the repaglinide and i see one of the side effects is possible weight gain, so, maybe now that he stopped taking it he'll see some weight loss. anyway, we both want to lose weight, but, seeing positive results healthwise is great too!!

happy humpday (does anyone know the commercial where the camel is walking through the office trying to get someone to say it's humpday. that's so funny)

Glad you're feeling better, Maw! And I'm pleased you have a new kitty. (As I am allergic to cats, I don't have any, and don't know a lot. Will she settle in after a bit?)

Job-hunting is no fun, I agree! Wouldn't a responding company realise they aren't the only place an applicant has sent in his/her resume? They don't have clue, all too often. Hope it gets sorted!

Day 6 of no sweets, and day 2 of VLC. Feels good to be back on the wagon. :)

Hubby's son and his partner (Neil and Sarah) will be moving in with us soon. He is 30; she is 29, and I like them both a lot.

A lovely day, got lots of work done, and will shortly tackle a little paperwork and then file a pile of papers away.

THEN -- chicken wings for dinner! YUMM! I love the crispy crunch (I cook them a long while, so get real crunchy), as it satisfies my gnawing urge. Half of them have garlic and sage, and the other half have garlic and mild curry powder.

And then I going to relax a bit. I am trying really hard to make myself relax and not whip myself that I have to work more and more and more, getting away from the office as late as 9 or 10 at times. Finding a balance has always been hard for me.

Anyway, Wednesday has been good.. "see" you all tomorrow!

I love back to school!! It means that fall is coming ha ha! Its wicked humid here but that hasn't stopped my urges to walk around my local lake. I walked around it twice yesterday and I want to do it again today. I think it gives me clarity.

I applied for jobs yesterday and today I got a text saying to call them about the job I applied for. Huh? Pick a job??!

Why is finding work so hard/annoying?! You have your resume and its all set and then you have to slowly file it all in on their system and then you get errors. Yeeesh! Anyways. Happy Wed Everyone!

Feeling MUCH better today! I may even go play bridge in a little bit. I had intended to go to Walmart today, but students are moving in this week (Indiana University is here) and the stores - especially Walmart - are crazy. I think I'm going to go to Kroger if I absolutely have to have anything this week, and then wait until next week to do a real shopping. Classes start next week, so it will still be nuts, but not quite as bad.

Daisy is settling in. I think she may have been feral. She is very skittish. She discovered the open window in my bedroom and has spent most of her time on the windowsill ever since. I don't think she will be happy when I have to shut the window to turn on the a/c this afternoon. I'll put it off as long as possible.
