Happy, healthy New Year everyone.

I didn't make it to see the ball drop.  I fell asleep and then was awakened by fireworks at 12....Couldn't go back to sleep till 2A.

Thanks for the well wishes for my knee.  I appreciate it.  My grandmother used to always talk about her "bum" knee.  Guess it runs in the family!!!!  Oh and BAZ, the Dr. did give me a compression bandage!!

Feel better LB

Such a beautiful day today.....Take care

#3....Sweats always wins!!

Good morning, not even an inch. It was pretty while it lasted.   :D  I am down 81lbs. I think this is the most weight I ever lost in all my years of yoyo dieting but never weighted this much.  I'm feeling better except knees are still.  so stiff going to a gym tomorrow night to get evaluated for going to get supervised training with other bariatric people.   Its for 8 weeks 2x a week plus 1 day in a general group training class.   Baz not off tomorrow

Hi LB, jicaji, julie, baz, Tig, ssrl and all.

Very sad news about Horst. God bless him.

My last post was Jan 1st. Much going on with family. My two oldest granddaughters 12 and 10 have been living with me since end of December. I've resumed the school and home routine schedule I had years ago when raising my four children. Things are going well with girls. Helping the 10 yr old with homework takes time as she's not a fan of school or homework but school has told me she's improved since living here. The 12 yr old's Jan 30 has been postponed till June which is not good. Her mother neglected to schedule (and I urged her continually to no avail) to schedule pre-surgical inoculations for splenectomy because mass on spleen is growing at a faster rate. I'm still praying that my prayers are answered that with this delay somehow healing will take place so no surgery needed. I don't and won't give up. Prayers are powerful.   

Some happy smiling news. My youngest granddaughter 5 yr skated onto the ice with her junior hockey team last night at the Hershey Bears Hockey Game. Some of the kids slipped and fell (as does happen with her too) but she skated around them moving her hockey stick out of the way and kept on going. lol She was chosen for an on-ice interview. When asked what she wanted to be when she grew up she said "a doctor". The crowd irrupted with cheers. Was very cool. But the reason was because being that the game was in Hershey PA (not far from my home) where Penn State Hershey Medical Hospital is located and Gracie lives and attends school the stadium had many doctors, interns etc in attendance. She then just skated off the ice. She was awesome for a 5yr old.  :)

I'm making a big pot of filled/stuffed peppers, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes today for some family to come visit and relax. It snowed and sleeted here yesterday and Brrrr cold so today's a good day to stay inside, eat and just chill out.

I hope everyone is doing good. I'll try to stay in touch more often.
Take care,
Paulie

Hi Tig, Geez! I had no clue about swelling issue for quite some time! Good to hear the pain is slight and bearable. Still not pleasant tho. Excellent you can do most things w/o a cane. I'm betting you will definitely do the mucho exercise tho. You sound determined. Take it easy doing it.

I forgot to say all 3 of LB's quotes are great. I especially like #2 (been there and doing that now) and #3 also. I'm hoping to steal some time in the future for the beach to enjoy. LOVE the beach, shoreline, water/waves and the relaxation one gets just sitting there soaking it all in. I think I'm doing that now thinking about it.   ;)

My granddaughters have been asleep since 9pm with all homework done and hubby is Zzzz now too. I'm soaking up the silence.  :)

LB, How did your gym evaluation go yesterday for supervised training?

Darn LB, Ok to next Tuesday. Your trouble with sleeping then waking to toss and turn is rough. Occasionally is one thing but you for a month now has to be getting old for you. Can you take an OTC sleep aid that won't have you feeling groggy in the morning to help you?

All 3 of your quotes are good.

Hi back at ya baz! Enjoy tennis! I saw on the news about the teenage girl winning match against a strong competitor. I forget their names. She's good!   
Hi jicaji.
Where's julie been? julie I hope all's okay with you too.

I have to say Geesh it's been a long week! Even with no school for grands on Monday so just 4 day school week. The 12yr old granddaughter had stomach virus/no fever for 2 days so no school. She returned to school today but the 10yr old grand woke with a 102 fever so no school for her today. She hit 104.4 chills sweats throwing up so not sure if some sort virus or flu. Both asleep now so I'm keeping fingers crossed they sleep good.

Supposed to rain 1 inch here tomorrow but warmer temps. I'll take warmer temps.

Hi LB, Today's Tuesday so wasn't it today that you had your gym evaluation? I'm assuming so from your saying your PT if working on bending your knees while walking. Have they been stiff all this time? Awesome you got handicapped parking for where you live. Use it everywhere you go. You take care.

Hi jicaji, Thanks but nope not awesome. Just doing what needs to be done because I love them and family. God bless these girls. I'm just doing what most would do but I am grateful that I'm able to. How's your knees (and you after your fall) and cutie Rizzo.  :)

Hi baz. How's your great or grand neice. I'm sorry I forget which is the title but she's a cutie pie either way.

I like LB's #1 quote from yesterday I just read.

I'm worried about julie. She hasn't been here since Jan 3rd.

I'm glad to read update about Mom's eye but still worried about it/her.

Take care all and sleep good and stay healthy and safe. I'm beat .. I'm rambling .. I'm going to bed.  ;D ;)

In my opinion, you ARE awesome.   I know what it takes to take care of the grandchildren.  I remember years ago when my three were younger and my daughter and her husband went on a weekend "vacation."  I was soooo tired when they came home!!!  Even now, when I'm with my new little granddaughter Violet, I'm worn out eventhough I'm NOT even babysitting LOL.  I just remember their mantra, "NOW what can we do Nana???"  Whew....

My knees constantly hurt. I know I need replacement on my left knee, but.......

My Rizzo is such a joy.  We just love him so much and he's doing well...Thanks for asking :)!!!

HI Baz and everyone!!!!  Have a good rest of the week.

Paulie you have awesome memory. I went to Gym it went well she i son the fence between a class for bariatric (to ose weight more invigorous) or one for arthritis  She wants to get sign off from my PT and surgeon .  I am n the fence.  I'll explain more on weekend when I am more alert.  MY PT agrees He can work with me and prep  me to be more prepared for the bariatric program.   There is a lot of squatting I think.

I still haven't heard from the person at the gym. If I don't hear from her this coming week I am going to make an appointment with a more local gym for private training . I scheduled my PT out for the month of FEBruary. I rather do one on one PT than a gym class for arthritiis.  The gym I belong to does not have one on one training  or I would not be so confident who they have there. I just want to work out to lose weight and tone up nt sure why so difficult

I had my 3/4 month check up with my surgeons group. I am down 85lbs. Slow and steady. They are happy with my progress. We went over my blood work and all my levels are good. My iron us a little wonky, he said I could take it on pills if I want but dont have to well see how they are at my year follow up. I complained about the RWJ well ess center cause I want to really start doing more exercises rather than just the bike and treadmill and planet fitness is not the place to learn. I td him the person at wellness center was suppose to call them for release he has no notes of her calling. She was ssd suppose to call my PT as well. She didnt call them either. Everyone says get active I want to, I am ready..only thing that may slow me down are my knees but I can ease my way up. want to get more active. So I am thinking of going to another gym and get a personal trainer. Dr said don't give up on wellness center but if they dont follow up why would I want to deal with them

Hi jicaji, Thanks but nope not awesome. Just doing what needs to be done because I love them and family. God bless these girls. I'm just doing what most would do but I am grateful that I'm able to. How's your knees (and you after your fall) and cutie Rizzo.  :)


In my opinion, you ARE awesome.   I know what it takes to take care of the grandchildren.  I remember years ago when my three were younger and my daughter and her husband went on a weekend "vacation."  I was soooo tired when they came home!!!  Even now, when I'm with my new little granddaughter Violet, I'm worn out eventhough I'm NOT even babysitting LOL.  I just remember their mantra, "NOW what can we do Nana???"  Whew....

My knees constantly hurt. I know I need replacement on my left knee, but.......

My Rizzo is such a joy.  We just love him so much and he's doing well...Thanks for asking :)!!!

HI Baz and everyone!!!!  Have a good rest of the week.
Hi jicaji, I apologize for delayed reply. Awwww precious Violet!! How old is she now?
 
True caring for grandchildren is exhausting. My granddaughters are still living with me .. almost two months now. They'll return home eventually and I know I'll miss them a lot. We've settled into a good routine. One thing I won't miss is helping and checking homework and help studying for tests. I did that so many years ago with my four kids. This new way of doing math is crazy to me.  Won't miss that!

Geez so sorry to hear about your knees and needing a knee replacement. Can you delay it much longer? That's definitely not something to look forward to except after recovery and PT you'll feel much better. Easier said than done I know.

Awesome news about cutie Rizzo!! Give him a hug from me and YOU take care.

I still haven't heard from the person at the gym. If I don't hear from her this coming week I am going to make an appointment with a more local gym for private training . I scheduled my PT out for the month of FEBruary. I rather do one on one PT than a gym class for arthritiis.  The gym I belong to does not have one on one training  or I would not be so confident who they have there. I just want to work out to lose weight and tone up nt sure why so difficult
I had my 3/4 month check up with my surgeons group. I am down 85lbs. Slow and steady. They are happy with my progress. We went over my blood work and all my levels are good. My iron us a little wonky, he said I could take it on pills if I want but dont have to well see how they are at my year follow up. I complained about the RWJ well ess center cause I want to really start doing more exercises rather than just the bike and treadmill and planet fitness is not the place to learn. I td him the person at wellness center was suppose to call them for release he has no notes of her calling. She was ssd suppose to call my PT as well. She didnt call them either. Everyone says get active I want to, I am ready..only thing that may slow me down are my knees but I can ease my way up. want to get more active. So I am thinking of going to another gym and get a personal trainer. Dr said don't give up on wellness center but if they dont follow up why would I want to deal with them
Hi LB, Awesome news you're down 85lbs! What's happening with PT and did the person from the wellness center ever make the calls for you she was supposed to? Are you going to planet fitness or somewhere else? Are your walks with Copper feeling better? Lots of questions I know. I'll try to come here more often. One good thing is you haven't had to worry about snow and ice walking in parking lots and at work. (I'm knocking on wood three times right now so I don't jinx anything!!)

The person I had assement with called NO ONE!!!!!!Not sure what I am doing.  I go to plane fitness to use bike and treadmill.   I have a stepper at home I started using.  PT is having me do stepper there as well.  I have 2 gyms (not planet fitness) to check out to get a personal trainer.  I am going to work with PT for month or so to prep me more.  I do have prgress.  Bending knees more but still soooo stiff.  I go to PT tomorrow I'll find out if she called since last week.  She told me I would be able to start the class last week if if got approval.  I walk Copper further.  I love being outside even in the cold   well it hasnt been so cold.  I hate it when hot and humid...  I also have to sttrt looking for new apartment or rent a condo  My lease is up in JUne and I need to get out of here.  I cant stand it and they will be raising rent which I cant afford.

Geez LB let's hope when you go to PT tomorrow you find out she has finally called. I sure hope so for your sake. Your knees sound really stiff. Using the stepper should help in time. Awesome you're walking Copper further. I understand your enjoying being outside. Wow! Your lease is finally up in June. Has it been two years? Best wishes to your finding a new place that's cozy and just want you want. Don't get another place with a neighbor above you! Keep us posted on your search. The perfect place for you is out there somewhere.

I'm beat and hitting the sake early. Fingers crossed for good news tomorrow from PT and that phone call.

she never called, I left a message saying my surgeon and pt said she never called.  I decided I am not going to that gym will go to another place just need to decide if I want a private trainer.

I'm replacing the original post that was cleared off when Amy did the update.

                                     AFTER THE FLEDGE 2020

Back by popular demand . . .These are the arrangements we have on hold for the 2020 season of ATF.   As indicated, the main festivities are being held for Thursday, July 16 through Sunday, July 19.  If you are interested and want to hold a room, please contact me.  You will have to reserve your space with a credit card.  No charges are made until July.  Just as before there is no cancellation fee if cancelled within the time each hotel will specify;  it does vary from property to property.  You know you can always contact me, also, if you have any questions regarding the hotels or other dates.  Taxes are not included and will be additional.  More ATF arrangements will be forthcoming later from others as available.       

Country Inn & Suites    (6 rms)                 July 16               $108
                                                              July 17               $155

Hey  Hi I have been semi  busy with PT and work and going to the gym a little more.  To date I have lost 95lbs in 6 months. 45 prior to my surgery and 50 after surgry.  I am going to start the bariatric gym class in April. Only because it is a good program and cheaper compared to other gyms. Not so thrillled with coordinator but shes not the trainer.  I'm walking better but knees still stiff

I decided to become a pampered chef consultant ::) ::) I had fu being hostess and I could use some extra money.  I have 2 virtual parites this week.  SOo... if anyone ever wants a party or know someone who does send them my way! !!!!!!

I started to look for new apartments will also go to a realtor to see if there are condos or town homes for rent. My lease is up in JUne and I want out of this place. 

Take care everyone!!!

I read from my last time posting Feb 11 I think and everyone seems to be doing good. Good!!

LB, Awesome news about you on different topics. That's great!

I'm enjoying DST and longer days and warm days when we've had them. Spring very soon! Yay!

There's 3 confirmed cases in my county of terrible global virus. Everyone follow the CDC guidelines to stay healthy and safe.

Where has our julie been??

Hi Paulie, One went really really the other didn't. she didn't even get the minimum  sales to get free products so I am extended it for her a few days.  I have 2 more so far this month. not sure how they will go with coronavirus going on,  I have one  confirmed case in my town.  My work is going to have us do rotations to work from home so I will be working from home 2-3x a week not sure how that will work since the germs will still be there from the previous workers who were there  the day before.   I am getting nervous about this.   I watched a video from a surgeon who  gave us all the numbers (math behind it all) not looking good

Hi LB, Good about the one that went really good and hopefully the other one you've extended will prove successful. It's very nice of you to extend for the lady. Fingers crossed for your 2 upcoming ones. I'm confused about your works decision about going in 2 to 3X a week too. I thought the same as you unless there must be people present at all times during the work week at your workplace? Is that the case? Hopefully they plan to have cleaning staff sanitize each night before the next day's staff comes into work. You already know the drill of wash hands frequently for 20 seconds and use sanitizer wipes if you can find them. Stores in my area were depleted last time I checked. Geez to one case in your town. My area will only list by county so no one knows for sure the exact locations of those that are sick. God bless everyone who is ill and everyone in general. The video you watched sounds interesting and in-depth.

All 3 of your quotes are good .. and your Stay Safe quote with the BE is beautiful.

No Cheerios today.  :( I hope everyone is okay. I wish all members of RRP good health.

LB, Did you go into work today?

Well .... my state of PA has been shut down. Me and hubby went to grocery story for a few items and the shelves looked like the apocalypse. Some empty shelves a few days ago but this afternoon was mind blowing. Geesh. We literally do need some essential items so I'll try again tomorrow morning after shelves have hopefully been restocked. A young man approached us and offered to give us his name and phone number offering to bring us food items if we'd like to. How very nice of him!!

I did get to my Agway before closing indefinitely and stocked up on 40lb bags of birdseed.  :)

I wish everyone safety and good health. Take care.

I went to work yesterday, worked from home today but I worked 12 hours. Its difficult working from home the screen is s o tiny and the lighting sucks.  Plus having copper  here is like having  toddler.  he just wants to go out.   We work every other day from home. NJ is  pretty much shut down too.  They just closed the malls as of 8 pm tonight until further notice.  I cant go to gym  :(   That was my new addiction besides weighing myself I have things I could do at home but i am just not motivated here. Everstay health and hope all the hording of things has stopped.       I  need milk soon!!!!!

Nora, Long time no see. It's really nice seeing your post and Chester is a cutie.

LB, Geez it sounds like you'd get more rest not working from home. Awww to Copper but it sounds like he's enjoying having his mom home with him daily. I know .. it doesn't help your stress level with working from home. It sounds difficult on your eyes too. Sad about your gym especially when you're doing so good. Keep up your exercises at home when you can. No backsliding because you've made great progress. Yep everything is shut down everywhere for everyone in most if not all states.

Yesterday's #1   Today #s 1 and 2

Take care everyone.

LB, I hope you don't have another 12 hour work day today. If your weather is okay how about a walk with Copper to get out for a bit?

good Morning.   Looks like NJ is going on a complete shut down only essential jobs open.  I got letter from headquarters we are considered essential   I didnt think manufacturing fragrances would be essential.   But we do sell to clorox for the  fragrance in their clorox wipes. I kn0w. we all need that. Just mad because our job could be done from home.  and we still need to go in every other day (still 2 set of teams) It only takes one person who doesnt know they have t to effect the whole office and plant

Hi LB, Your job sounds interesting about fragrances for Clorox and other things I'm sure so yeah sounds essential but agreed why not from home. I guess they have their reasons but you'll find out soon if NJ does shut down.

Pennsylvania announced earlier today it is considering a total shut down now too but is calling it "shelter in place." Our schools shut down about two weeks ago and now all non-essential stores have been closed earlier this week.

Be sure you stock up on your meds and any OTC for pain relief too if you can find them.
One thing is for sure we are all living history right now. You take care.

#1 is funny and #2 awesome

Here's a pic of deer family that's still been visiting my backyard. The young ones are growing nicely. The one mom doe loves carrots. They started coming here early last Spring so it's been a year now. Crazy thing is all I had out in the ground feeder at the time was birdseed. They still clean that big metal tray along with other treats that are put out now. Two bucks have been here too. A halo and a 6 or 8 point buck.

Love the dears Paulie.  We are in shut down.   My job is considered essential.  I could do my job from home except one part.  when we print out the labels and formulas for production. Someone needs to be there to do that and guess who it is !! My department!! We could always call production to let them know they can print labels but nope...I went to store yesterday.. no chicken actually no mean.  I just needed chicken breasts..   No paper goods I am down to my last 3 rolls of paper towels which normally is good for a bit but I am using it all the time.   You have to get to the store early Our stores are allowing seniors to shop the first hour.  I heard younger people are there at that time which is rude..  This week I am working from home monday wed and friday.  I am debating if I should go to PT. My allergies are kicking in so I am nervous if it is corona virus or my allergies. I feel fine though   I am constantly taking temp.  Who would think we would be going through something like this?? My town has 11 cases. 2 are in my fathers development.    Stay safe everyone

Hi LB, Thanks about the deer. 5 were here earlier. Beautiful.
Thanks for your explanation about being essential going into work. Did you get to go to the store today? I hope so and you got the chicken and whatever you need.

My area in PA has senior hours too but I don't get up that early. It's early. Lol A guy in my area said that "a senior" showed up at the grocery store after the delegated senior time for shopping so he escorted her back to her car telling her no. Wow. My hubby said he'd hate to be the person who tried escorting me back to my car because they'd really really regret it. Yep!! Very true!! LOL

If you know it's your allergies and you're feeling good I'd still go to PT. That's important for you and the progress you've made and to continue it. I'm sure the PT facility will be keeping everything sanitary for all users. Let me know what you decide.

The cases in your town and 2 in your dad's development definitely is worrisome. True who thought any of us in all the states would be going through this but we are .. and we're going to get through this okay too. Be determined and safe washing your hands often and use caution going out to minimal places required because you still have to live as regular a routine as you can. That's pretty much all we each can do.

All three of your quotes today are good. Thanks for posting them. It looks like you and I are keeping two stools active in Cheers. I'm tipping my elftini to you. (Clink) All's going to be okay.  ;) Take care.

Hi LB, Yep! Just you and me kiddo! LOL No one can say we're not dedicated.  ;D Good to you working from home tomorrow. Stay in your pajamas! Oh I guess you have to take Copper out at times. Has he settled down some now with the day's that you work from home? At the beginning he thought, "Oh boy! mommy is home all the time now." lol

I agree 100% about driving with very little to no traffic. It's nice!! I had a Dr appt today 45 min away. Traffic was sweet. Once I checked in the entire complex lost power. I was the only patient there. We all laughed saying ok what's next then just chatted for a bit. We eventually decided not to wait for power to come on and went into a surgical room with a window for some light and nurse used a flash light when needed. It was a dermatologist. I wanted a mole on my face checked that I questioned because of changes and discoloration on skin around it. He removed it and will biopsy. I've seen him before for regular appts so knowing him and staff was pleasant during the power outage. We figured I was there so let's do this! Definitely was an interesting visit. That mole was on my cheek bone forever. It looks so different with it gone and I like it!  :)

Geez! Good luck finding paper towels and sanitizer!!

What did you decide to do about PT?

Both quotes are good.

Good luck on the mole Paulie   I didnt go to PT cause I worked until 7!!!!  They are shutting down PT so no more for now but  i can do most of the exercises at home so I will he will print one exercise for me to do and email it to me . He just showed me that one so its knew. It looks like work is calming down.  Mass governor closed Yankee candle  until April 7 saying they are not essential!!

Wow interesting about the Mass governor closing Yankee Candle. Your work sounds interesting about all the different fragrances and distribution.

Did you go to store looking for paper towels?
Title: Re: Cheers 2020
Post by: paulie on March 26, 2020, 08:54:27 AM
Good Morning LB, Today's Thursday so you went into work. I've been wondering about all the fragrances your work provides. Pretty cool I think because I hadn't thought about things like that before about production and distribution. It's interesting.

My son in NC tore his Achilles tendon the end of Feb. It required a more intense surgery and repair. His foot and leg wre wrapped and had to be immobile and elevated for two weeks and then was put in cast up to knee. Finally today a month later he was to get a walking book but at the appt he was told the Dr/surgeon didn't travel from surgical office (an hour away) to the local office so now appt is next week. To say my son is very bummed out and disappointed is an understatement. This virus is affecting lots of areas and things in different ways.

Maybe since you're out today you'll look for and find paper towels and some meat. Hope so! Temp is supposed to warm up too so enjoy.

Hey LB, I remember when you tore you Achilles. You were living in your townhouse and trying to navigate around and up the stairs. Didn't you have one of the aids with wheels that you'd put your knee on? Maybe I'm wrong.
The story about your boss doesn't sound good.
Try to relax and enjoy the weekend but very true we can't do anything. I'm having a heck of a time keeping my hubby from leaving to "just get out and walk around a store." Nope! Only if we have to. PA had another 581 new cases today and the Gov placed more stay at home orders to a few more counties.
Try to go out early tomorrow morning to look for meats before it's gone again.

Hi baz, Thanks and sounds like you're getting lots of use of eggs. Good when they can be found. Shelves with eggs, butter, cheese were empty a few days last week. Of course that depends on delivery times too. Hubby and I have resumed shopping at military post commissary. It's a bit of a drive but worth it and better than local stores. We just enjoy the ride. Funny pic. I did lol.

Hi LB, Nice!! Good news you found paper towels and cleaner. Reading about the food you were cooking made me hungry! Lol And cool that you have enough that you could use another freezer! I'm sure your place smelled good from all the cooking. Did Copper want any?

According to the news all of NJ might be issued a stay at home order. How will that impact your work since you and others were still working and considered essential?

PA has had another 500 confirmed cases today so now it's 2,751, some deaths (very sad) and a few more counties issued stay at home. Still plenty food and misc at my house so we're good for a bit.

I hear ya about cleaning. I should have done some today but it's been pouring rain, gloomy outside and now some thunder and I just felt lazy. lol

Hi LB, Same here geesh a dreary rainy chilly day and earlier this week it was supposed to be sunny and 70. Not! lol Great to your getting your walk in. It's always good being outside. I was going to walk today but ended up digging into going through things to discard and reorganize then that lead to more and then vacuuming. I still didn't dust and still need to clean too. I've been doing other projects around the house. It looks like we're all going to have plenty time to clean in the next month to do that.

I've got a row of elftinis lined up so I think I'll down all of them.  ;D Then I'll clean and put the glasses on the shelf.  ;)

It's gorgeous outside here today .. sunny and warmer temp. I'm getting my butt outside to do some yard work. I've completed most already with the extra time at home. I don't think I've ever been this far ahead in clean up and planting some perennials before!!  :)

Oh LB, I'm so sorry to read this! I don't understand why if it was known since March 19 why it's being announced today? Maybe they were waiting for test results? Positive tests results received March 19? Was this explained? There's still the 14 days non-symptomatic vs the 9 says not in office. Confusing and you and co-workers deserve more detailed explanation. I hope you'll receive more definitive information. I don't blame you for being so upset. Keep me updated for sure.

My county was issued a stay at home effective at 8pm tonight. This thing is very scary.  Oh geez LB. God bless you and your concerns.

I dont get it.    I just dont.  All I know the attitudes in office yesterday was so much more somber than the last couple of weeks   MY co worker was also not feeling well said trouble breathing . She went to dr he said sinus infection SInus has nothing to do with breathing... Im afraid to express my concern becuase they all look at me like I'm nuts I cant afford to loose my job

Hi LB, I don't blame you for being so concerned because everyone should be including your head of location. Maybe he/she is but trying to downplay to not get others distraught. But still .... ya know?! Does your co-worker maybe have bronchitis along with sinus infection? If so that could cause breathing difficulty. Is she at work today? Hope not. This being Tuesday I'm assuming you had to go in. I understand your being worried about loosing your job. They shouldn't think you're nuts for being worried and concerned in my opinion because everyone should be concerned with the spread of this virus. Keep me updated.

Something that surprised hubby and me today when we went to the NEX, PX and commissary today at 2 different military posts. There were both young adults and older adults shoppers wearing masks. Perhaps some or all have compromised immune systems so being more cautious.

Good Morning LB, Your early morning walk with Copper sounds nice! Nice you work from home today too.

Heard the same news on local news and GMA this morning about EMS guidelines. God bless everyone on both sides of the spectrum.

I thought of you when listening to the news topic about people beginning to wear masks and it's being considered more seriously and suggested in some areas. In the video for making a mask it showed the same idea you dad sent you a link to! I thought of you immediately. Thumbs up to your father wanting to protect and share with you.

I received an email from my Senator, sent to all in my area, suggesting then saying please wear a mask to help the spread of and prevention when going out for only essential items. It also included the video for a non-sewing band mask. Perhaps this gives you a more valid point to wear a mask when you have to go into your workplace or essential store if you decide to in order to help your worrying. Your choice of course.

Well you did it again today with 3 very good quotes. I like each of them but #1 made me smile a bit more. Very cool. You find great quotes!

You take care and I wish you and everyone a safe and stay healthy day.

Good morning LB, Bless your heart .. you are a bundle of nerves. Good thinking on your part to chew and eat your meals slower due to your stomach. If I remember correctly you were told to do that after your surgery too. It makes sense. I realize it's easy to forget that at times especially with how stressed you are. Awesome planning on your part to go into work early to leave early so you can have teledoc appt from home. You'll be more relaxed. Please let me know how your appt goes.

You love the wind. I didn't know that. I do think of you when I see and hear the robins in my yard. It reminded me recently about the robin nest in your pretty backyard at your townhouse before you moved.

Oh LB I'm happy for you! Awesome news about your weight loss! Great news too that your Dr prefers that you work from home and a good response from your boss. Very cool about working from home weekly in shifts and the stricter requirements before going to your work place. I remember you mentioned in an earlier post about having to go into work because of using the printer (for labels or something) associated with the different scents for products. It would be nice if that could be done remotely.

Now you relax and sleep good tonight after your day of good news!  :)

Hi all,

Geez today was a long day at home. I usually keep busy doing things inside and outside but didn't feel like it today and that made today feel loooong.

Hubby and I did drive to Lowe's to get bags of mulch that are on special today. I thought it would be safe and easy because all bags are piled outside as is the cash register right inside the gate of the nursery end of store in an open area. I thought pay .. have the guy load them then drive away. We even had our masks with us. Wrong! The store was allowing only the main door open and only a few people in at a time until they checked out and left. The line was long the entire length of the store and growing. We decided nope and will go back at another time and probably not until the 'all clear' notice is given. No biggie.

Hi Tig, How are you and camper?

We are good. I came down with a cold or allergies? last Monday night. Sure scared me for a day or so.  :-\
Keeping busy in retirement with home projects.
Camper goes out a few times a week to search for eagles and other pretties to photograph.
SED
Tig
Good morning Tig, I'm glad you're both good. Geez that was scary and worrisome for you last week. I'm glad you're feeling better.
Isn't retirement interesting. At first we think about all of our free time then we get busy with project after project that it seems we had more free time before we retired. Lol
Cool about Camper going out in search of eagles and other photos. Now that sounds pleasant and relaxing!

Hi to the Cheerios!  :)

The highlight of my day was an osprey flying low over my car today!!!   :) :) :-* :)  It was at a place that I thought I might have seen one before, but wasn't sure.  Now I'm sure it was an osprey!  I might have to park near there, and walk around to see if I can find its nest.

Take care, Cheerios.   :)   Remember to practice the updated CDC guidelines.  Everyone please stay safe - for you, your family, and others around you.  (((HUGS CHEERIOS)))

G'night Cheerios.  Sleep in Peace and Comfort.  SED.
Hi baz good morning to you too and a really good morning seeing an osprey!! Your going to park there and walk around sounds relaxing and exciting.

Good morning LB, Nice about lots of walks and a short work week for you too!! I've been hearing that lots if not all online grocery sites are super busy. I'm assuming now especially due to the raised caution for the upcoming week. Wow your father is 85. He'll definitely appreciate your getting things for him definitely. Be sure to wear your mask and wash wash your hands. Do you have sanitary wipes to wipe your items after you bring them home? I've been doing that. Better safe than sorry as they say.

Hi LB, How was work today? You can stay home tomorrow. Yay. Hubby and I went grocery shopping today for Easter ham and other things. We wore our masks and 90% of everyone else did too. Everyone was good at social distancing. The store was well stocked except for TP but we're good on that and I found my Bounty napkins! What day are you shopping this week for you and your father? I think you said you have Thursday and Friday off. I mowed the lawn today and did last week too. It's growing fast. I'm going to edge the driveway and sidewalks tomorrow.

All your quotes are good!

Good morning all,

A beautiful warm day here today. Possible nasty storms tonight. Time will tell. My daughter who has lupus was due her 90 day supply of Plaquenil. Pharmacy said she could have 10. She fought back hard but she got her 3 month supply. Good!! Mail order was cheaper but she didn't want to take that chance with current circumstances so she chose to get from pharmacy. Because of insurance it cost more over $100 but she wanted them in her hands now not mail. I agreed 100%.

Tig I hope you're continuing to feel better.

LB and baz, Have a good day.

I'm heading out to edge driveway and sidewalks.

Take care everyone.

Good Evening.  I work from home tomorrow and I am off for rest of the week  I am going grocery shopping friday. I want to make a dish that I need ingredients for plus getting my father a few things,  I dont have  mask so I will be making one. I cant find masks anywhere.  I have a zoom appt with my nutritionist tomorrow  Its just my 3-4 month check in.  I have been having trouble holding down food a few times the last couple of weeks.   SO I am a little nervous.  I think I am eating too fast and not chewing  enough.  Distracted with the covid 19 and not paying attention and reminding myself to eat slower.  Paulie good your daughter got her scripts.  sorry it cost so much but definity worth it.  Stay safe

Hi LB, Nice to you working from home tomorrow then home for the rest of week. I've seen a lot of cool homemade masks others made a couple times I've been out. Good luck with nutritionist appt tomorrow. She'll probably agree with your eating habit and suggest slowing down etc. Hope so. Let me know please.
Thanks about my daughter's script. Very true. Worth the cost.
My neighbor next door mowed his lawn today and wore a mask. He's never worn one in past years mowing. It made me wonder if we're supposed to wear masks outside or like mowing but I say no. I'm thinking he was being cautious. Last I heard is we wear masks to protect others from us (and I think a mask does protect us too from others germs too .. just don't touch face) but there was no one around him the entire time. I know I can't wear a mast when mowing because when I wear mine my glasses fog up and darn it I can't see clearly!! I'm not wearing one to mow. lol
You take care LB and I hope you get good news tomorrow and you can relax some. You are going to be okay.  :)

Hi LB, Good to you and Copper's walk. I can picture you two walking thru the wind and Copper's ears in the wind.  :) Wow you're doing great with what you've cooked and shopping and more shopping today. I hope you find all you need for yourself and your dad. I'm very sure he's going to appreciate all the goodies you take to him. Very nice! You're a good daughter. That's an excellent arrangement to leave things in his garage then he gets it then wipes down. How's your dad better than you? By wiping things down? You start doing that and wash your hands. I'm thinking you do.  ;)
I've done similar with my children and their families. Me and hubby take there or they come here but we have no contact. It feels so strange and weird tho doesn't it!!

Good Morning  I just got my gloves.  waiting for my masks to come. suppose to come today  I got to the grocery store just in time yesterday after I got there the line started to form around the building.  They are only allowing 50% of capacity in at a time.  I found a 6 pack of paper towels but still nothing else. I need clorox wipes bleach amonia hand sanitizer oh and  igot hand soap.  I called my father when I was at store and his girlfriend and him were sending me all over the store to pick up stuff.  It stated as he only needed the coffee creamer to a whole list   :o I forgot to get a few things I needed    I got my steps in LOL

Hi LB, Geez you sure did get your steps in today!! lol Great timing for you arriving at the store yesterday. Yay you finally found your paper towels. Good luck finding those other sanitizing items. Same here at stores. Awesome to finding hand soap. It was very very nice of you to do that extra shopping. I'm sure your dad and his girlfriend appreciated it!! And he got his coffee creamer too!  ;) Cool to you getting your gloves. Did your masks arrive today?
The news in my area has reported people leaving their gloves in the parking lots after shopping. That's just wrong!
You had a successful day. Good!!

#1 definitely and yes to #2 for a while yet I agree with ssrl.

Hi ssrl! Good to see you. Ironically I was thinking about you today and here you are!  :) I hope all is good with you.

Only provide safety as its required not on their own... SMH     Parking lots are filled with gloves here too disgusting

Good Morning  :)
I'm still cooking my Easter dinner and dessert for all of my family today despite this virus keeping us all apart. I couldn't let this special day go without us all joining together some way and filling everyone's tummies even if we all cannot all be gathered together. I've got Easter baskets for my granddaughter's too and a surprise present for each too.  ;D
Hubby and I are going to take to their houses and leave food containers, baskets on their porches and I'm sure we'll all be waving and throwing kisses from a distance.
I wish a pleasant and healthy day to all.
Take care.

Oh Paulie that is so thoughtful of you.  You all could use zoom or house party apps and see each other on your phone while you eat.    A lot of people are doing drivebys for birthdays too.   I went grocery shopping today again. The one thing I wanted they didnt have besides cleaning products.   my low fat coffee creamer  They had fat free never had that .I think I wont like

Hi LB, Excellent that you got your masks and gloves. I am surprised that your employer didn't provide them. When you go into work next week do you work in your area alone? Or are there not many other workers around?
Oh no! You forgot your creamer! lol When you went to the store for it today did you get there early enough so there wasn't a line?

Thanks LB. I have heard about the Zoom and other apps to do that. That would be cool. I saw the driveby birthdays on TV for children. That's special. People are being very kind and inventive during this surreal time. Oh darn!! I just read you didn't get the creamer you like. Hmmm hopefully there won't be much difference in taste between the low fat and fat free. Let me know.

Today was an awesome although busy day and now feeling exhausted. I'm not complaining. No way! I got to see all my children and granddaughters (from a social distance) when my husband and I drove Easter meal and dessert to each. It was great seeing their faces and talking and throwing kisses. Awesome. Well I saw all my children except one son who lives in NC. But he called and we faced timed and he, me, hubby and dil spoke for an hour. A special Easter day in more ways than one. One to remember that's for sure.

My five year old granddaughter didn't see the hidden eggs my daughter hid in their back yard for an Easter egg hunt. My daughter said when Gracie didn't see any eggs at first she asked if the Easter Bunny didn't hide any eggs because of the virus. God bless her precious heart. She did eventually find them and had a blast. Yay!

I was in my pajamas on by 7pm after a busy but heart lifting day.  ;D Family is so very special.

LB, I'm thinking of you and your going into work tomorrow and for the week.

Night all. SED

We had spooky looking sky, rain and windy here now but the sun is out along with the purple sky but I think bad stuff has passed over. Radar looks like it's passing over NJ now then it's outta there!

I made a large pot of beef stew today then put into large containers for my children and families and hubby and I. It was fun having them come here to get from front porch .. then they put something on porch for us .. we talked from a distance before they left. It snowed and some snow squalls off and on today so a good day for home made beef stew for all.

It's time for a stronger drink than coffee all day and relax.  ;)

Post by: LBLNJ0668 on April 18, 2020, 01:28:21 PM
Hey I am back....  SO our ordeal started Tuesday.   A girl in another department but sits close to us.  She started apologizing to her co worker about her mistakes she made the day before (9:30 am)   and started blurting out  how she was sick with fever chills the sweats for the past 5 days so she was tired.   Both me and one of my coworkers also in office turned to each other with our eyes bulging.  SHe wasnt wearing mask or gloves which is and was required.   The story behind that was they ran out but someone was getting some more.  she went to the office without waiting where my coworker waited. (They both come into the office at 7:30. MY coworker messaged our boss. That we were concerned especially since she wasn't wearing a mask.  To make long story short thy finally had her leave the office around 10:45am (she still never got mask  even after a manager told her to get one) Our bosses boss said she was cleared to come in to the office from the dr  and the only reason why she  was sent home was because of our complaints and comments. The story changed a little each take time words came out of her mouth .  The next day  our bosses boss came in and spoke to us really pretty much accused us of bad mouthing and making nasty comments and there is no reason for us to be concerned. and we need to be careful what we say cause it could be a lawsuit.  My co worker confronted her that we were always told in all emails if we have our concerns we should express them and now your telling us we can't and  our concern she was in office for 3 hours and never went to get the masks and gloves that was required for us to wear The boss than pointer her finger at me saying I wasn't wearing my mask the whole time she has seen it under my chin.   I said yes when I was eating or drinking.  Are we not allowed to eat or drink??? In the mean time she never a mask that day either not even around her chin.  Now she was trying to be all  buddy buddy with us when she wa sin office..   We were so fuming.....  oh and she said we crossed the line when it comes to Hippa and started talking about how the girl has issues already and knows we all don't like working with her m(we answered like what???) not sure where she got that from.  she continued about how people talk which I know about.  It was he (boss the firls co worker and 2 other gals that talk about her and take photos of her cubicle because it's filthy and they always are cleaning her cubicle.  SO she had nerve bring that up also as a boss which doesn't evn pertain to us.   So she crossed the line o HIPA   TADA my ordeal of the week

Oh my heavens LB! After reading I was stunned and honestly I'm speechless. Wow!! I am stunned on many different topics .. your initial co-worker who was sick, your boss and bosses boss words and the boss not wearing a mask when required etc etc. It's very understandable why you were so upset this past work week. It is SO good that you work from home this week!!
A question .. did the co-worker that was sent home that day return to work at all this week?

Oh! Okay same manager so her department is different but under the same area/umbrella so you have the same manager. Geez but she still sits close to you so a reason to be concerned by her having been sick remarks. It's good you'll be working from home next week when she returns Monday. I hope her health issues were minor for hers and everyone's sakes. By the next week when you go into work hopefully all issues have been resolved and she'll also be wearing her mask and gloves. Fingers crossed!

Hi LB  :) Awww Nice to hear about your long morning walk then another. If you can sometime will you post a pic of cutie Copper? I haven't seen him for a while.
Did you do some cleaning and excercise? Oh! What about the PT that you were given paperwork on to do? Is that what you mean? I wouldn't say you've been bad not exercising considering all that's been going on with the nasty virus, stress and your work issues. Usually when life has us in a mood (that I call a crappy mood lol) the last thing we want to do is exercise. At least I don't. That's a real "force me to do it" thing.
Who mentioned Cheers on FB and dusting off her stool? I'm ROFL about your saying we sold all the Cheers chairs!!  Good one!!  :D :P

Geez I don't remember her. (Sorry Jette Sky. Hi!) I pulled out the list from way back (before Cheers thread was started. I forget the name of the thread back then.) where I wrote down a full page of names (oh my great names and memories of members back then and I think you created a list too LB when we all said which state we lived in after Cheers began. I started here in 2011. Maybe Jette Sky was in the Forum before Aug 2011?
Uh-oh!! Doesn't sound good about your boss .. and you're working from home this week?! What the heck?! I hope it's not flak from the incident at work last week and the girl that had been sick returning today. Take a deep breath LB. ((Hug))

Good to today being a bit better LB! Thumbs up to Thursday and Friday .. yep!! Interesting about you debating if you like going into work vs work from home. It's not unusual either. Lots think working from home would be great but it's not always the case. I know some friends who chose to work from home when they had the opportunity. Once they tried it most chose to return to going into work while the others really enjoyed working from home. All comes to personal choice.

I had a heck of a busy day. I planned all shopping and errands for one day for safety, today. Got a lot done!!

Hi LB, Yes I do and hubby too. I ordered more masks from a local place and they are to be delivered tomorrow. Thanks.  :) Safety is why I try to combine going out for all we need into one day vs spreading it out. I'm assuming that's better but who knows?
Oh that's right about Copper wanting to go for walks when you're home! I forgot you mentioned that when you began working from home.
2 to 3 days at home then some days out sounds pretty nice actually. I wonder when things begin to calm down more and more if some employers will continue with some work from home days vs going into work?

Definitely #1 All three are good.

Hi LB, You had me chuckling reading your description about your and Copper's walks. Be careful with your knees and he's just a cutie. Cool about you're going to find a recent picture of him. Geez very true about next week when you're at work and his walks. He's going to miss you! I bet with the stay at home for most that it's put most dog walkers out of business.

I had a busy day from when I woke up finally digging into getting some more things done around the house. Then I helped hubby out with a project. I obviously lost track of the time!!

Sleep well LB and Copper.  ;)

Hey Paulie, we hung our Hummingbird feeder a couple of days ago.  Last year, the first Hummingbird came by around May 13th.  We weren't prepared and he flew right up to the window to let us know he was here!!!  Amazing.

BTW, we had another black bear on our deck the other night.  Not as big as the first one last September, but a good size.  He went over to the bird feeder, I think trying to get the suet and knocked it down :)  My husband fixed it!

Have a good night all.

Very cool about your male Hummingbird flying up to the window!! He sure let you know he's back! Awesome!

Good Morning LB, Interesting also about a fox wondering around your complex. Awww it's nice you're doing another grocery run for your father.

Nice LB to 2 large walks today. Good that you and Copper took advantage of the nice weather. Same here tomorrow. Rain. My first thought was your knees are sensing and feeling the rain tomorrow too. Good news about paper products coming back and for items you got today. Thumbs up for sure!

I got all the mowing done, trimmed back a very large trumpet vine I've had for years and got some edging done too. Yep I'm tired! My husband doesn't like the trumpet vine because of it's size but Hummingbirds love it so it stays. ;D

You and Copper sleep good after your nice walks then cozy in tomorrow in the rain. I guess no walks?

Night. Sleep well to everyone.

Paulie....Yes, it's an all wooded area with a sprinkling of houses on a cul de sac.  Funny, but I don't get too scared.  This is only the second time since September so it's few and far between AND they're black bears, not brown or grizzly.  I do get a little spooked though when I let Rizzo out at night, but he's always on the leash and I take him out front.

Went out to the $$ store today for some greeting cards I needed.  I love just paying $1 or less for cards, rather than $5+ in the grocery stores.  Everyone had their masks on as I did, with my gloves.  Couldn't wait to get out though... I get nervous.  So sad.

He's been with temperature for a month and kept ignoring me when I told him to get tested.  noooo he wouldn't get tested.  SO last night he had trouble breather so to the er he went.  He was just diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago and its now out of control as well.  SO he is in the hospital for at least 2 nights. Still waiting for results of the covid19 test.  So could use ome prayers for my brother...

Oh! LB I'm so sorry to read about your brother! Yes I will absolutely be saying prayers for him. I just said one and will continue. You did your best asking him to get tested previously. Definitely praying for his test results to be negative.

Hi jicaji, The area you live in sounds very pretty. Good to bear visits being infrequent. I'd feel the same as you do taking Rizzo out at night.

Good to you getting your cards and in and out. I do the same and am cautious looking around and behind me to make sure no one gets close. No reason and not good to stay long.

This past November me and my husband went to one of our son's home in NC to care for his German Shepherd while he and his wife went to a conference in San Francisco. He lives on a side of a mountain. Well one very early morning at 4AM Trigger woke me to go outside. Hmmmm I thought ok we've done this at night before bed. Trigger doesn't get leashed. He always stays nearby. There's a spot light on the side of the house that shines on an area that's all trees of course with darkness all around it and it's all on a decline on mountain side. Normally Trigger sniffs around, does his business then we go inside walking around to the front door of the house. Not this time at 4AM!! At first he sniffed a bit then he stopped, got into a 'stance' and began growling. Oh crap I thought!! as I'm in pajamas and bathrobe. Hubby was asleep. I started to say Trigger ... TRIGGER!! Well I stepped off the porch calling to him and I meant business!! He listened and I scooted him and me inside real fast!! lol I can laugh now but not then. When we were inside I nicely told him we're not going out at that time any more and he listened the entire week I was with him!! LOL

Good morning all,

LB, I'm thinking tonight will be his second night in hospital? Prayers continue for him.
You go into work this week. I hope Copper is a good boy while you're at work. He's going to miss his mom.

LB, Excellent news that your brother does not have Covid 19. Prayers answered! l will now say a thank you prayer. His pneumonia definitely is/was very bad! Very good news that the procedure helped him. That was a too close of a call. He's in the best place he can be now and they'll take good care of him. Good!! Great news for him, you and your family.

You relax and rest now after your long work day.

#1 Definitely.

Good to you not getting snow! With it being so cold there I'm surprised your hummer arrived. But migration is migration! Is he still around in the cooler temps? I haven't seen any at my feeders yet but my Bluebirds are here daily and staying later in the evenings. They're going through lots of bags of mealworms!

I hear ya about being in pj's later then changing into sweats! LOL

Hi LB, Thank you for your brother's update. The extension of your brother's hospital stay and sanitation of his room sounds like he is being watched closely and well taken care of. Prayers continue for his full recovery.

Tomorrow you're half way through your work week. I hope all is going well.

All quotes are good ones.

Prayers and caring thoughts to everyone.

Good afternoon  :) Just popping in to see if anyone has been here.

A pretty nice day here .. sunny and 66 with a breeze. Tomorrow 1 to 3 inches rain and winds 20 to 30mph.  >:(
I've been doing things outside and heading back out to enjoy weather and doing things. Always can find something to do outside. lol
This morning tree guy stopped by with estimate to trim back and thin out more trees. We all wore masks and distanced 6' apart when talking. He'll be back to do in about 2 weeks. Another guy is stopping by yet today to get measurements and repair our long grape arbor that high winds blew off some top rails and some posts are leaning. It's been up a long time so repairs needed anyway.

I'm heading back outside.  ;D Later ....

Well, yesterday, before it turned ugly outside, I got to plant my marigold seeds from last year's plants in my flower boxes on the deck.   The weather's been so cold here, I haven't planted any flowers yet.  Miserable, rainy day here.

Still have a toothache....2 months now.  I don't want to go to the dentist due to the stupid virus.  Don't want them digging around in my mouth!!  I've been taking tylenol, which helps for a few hours.  I wake up with a headache every morning and the dull ache from it.  Can't wait until I feel safe to go.  We're both high risk due to age, but my husband has a greater risk due to asthma and respiratory stuff.  I also need to get my cortisone shot for my knee, but won't go there either yet.  I don't want to bring the virus back to the house.  Ugh

I swear it's always something!!!!

Have a good one everybody

Hi jicaji, It's nice and good that you could plant your marigold seeds. And from last year's plants too. Cool. They sure do produce tons of seeds. I always think this is how nurseries can make so much money. lol Same here with being too cold to plant flowers or warm weather vegetables. Pennsylvania moved it's fear of last frost from April 15 to May 15 for planting about 5+ years ago.

Geez I'm sorry to hear about your tooth ache and how long you've had it and a headache too. I understand your not wanting to go to dentist for sure. Yes to digging around in you mouth and dentist has to get face to face close!! No way no thank you. I had part of a tooth chip off a couple of weeks ago and I didn't call dentist either. I have my regular 6 month dental appt next week so thought I'd decide what to do then but I got a message from my dental office they have been and remain closed indefinitely. Well ok then that settles it for me not going in.

I've been wondering about your knee and cortisone shot!! With both yours and especially your husband's being greater at risk issues once again this nasty surreal virus creates even more complicated issues. Yes ugh!!

Weather in my area of PA is definitely thumbs down today. Holy rain!!! There's now flooding of creeks etc and still hammering rain till later today and high winds.

Oh! A thought. Do you have Ambesol to rub on the gum to help the toothache? If not order online then use drug store drive thru?
If not rubbing some whiskey or equivalent on the gum area too. I remember that remedy from back in the day!!  :)

You have a good day too. We can try right?  ;)

Hi baz, Your dental office sounds awesome super safe and sanitized. Good! I'm assuming they all must be and operate on an emergency basis for patients even during a pandemic. Heck emergencies do happen for sure. It's good your appointment well good and your crown fixed.

OK I will try this again.  I was almost done and computer crashed.   gggrrrr..

Jacaji  I feel your pain on the tooth ache!!! They are the worse.   I actually had an appointment to get a back molar pulled right when corvid19 started. so we rescheduled it to mid May.  They are open for emergencies only so if it starts to bother me they will get me in .   

Paulie, they HI was just a hi.  I was too tired to type anything more.  LOL  MY brother may be in the hospital through the weekend.  He may need to do another procedure.  I think the are where they drained started to get infected.  The surgeon said he never say so much puss in the lungs before.  I sure hope he learnt a lesson

Baz yes it's Friday tomorrow than home for 9 days!!!!!! Work from home next week. . 

My town has been averaging around 40 new cases a week for a month. This week we went down to today and today only 6!!!!  They are opening up state arks and golf courses on Saturday with social distancing in full affect.  Hopefully they all listen!!!

Hi LB, Ok to your Hi. lol You must have been really tired. Oh my to your brother and maybe needing another procedure. I remember you saying he had his issue for a long time and you kept urging him to see a doctor. Yes he definitely should have listened to his sister! I'm betting he does learn a lesson from this. Prayers continue for him.

Awesome that after tomorrow you have 9 days to be home and work from home week. Good news about the number of new cases in your area dropping to 6 today!! Yes hopefully people will listen during the gradual lifting of some places opening. The same with PA that's going to begin relaxing a few things and also open things up on a county by county basis depending on virus improvements. Fingers crossed for every state.

Hi My brother had  his 2nd procedure today he texted me telling me his surgery was at 130. He never answered my texts or phone calls. so I got nervous and called the hospital.  He is fine was still in recovery on his way to a new room.  I guess his surgery was delayed  but nurse said he was fine and he just had OJ  what a relief.   I was getting nervous.   Going to be beautiful this weekend mid 70's!!! The parks are opening too. so That gets me nervous.   People can get careless

Hi LB and good morning, Excellent news about your brother's procedure going good and he's now in a new room recovering. My heavens to what he's been through!

Nice to your first walk already today. Agreed to nicer more pleasant weather. Same weather here for the weekend. True about the parks probably being busy.

In my area today's openings are golf courses, private park sites and private marinas. Well I don't golf nor do I have a boat so I'm good! lol Certain counties in PA open on May 8 but my county is still in the red color so still stay at home except food etc. Earlier this morning my husband drove to our local Agway to get two items but he said cars were parked lining down the road and too many people not social distancing so he left. Good!

My governor is going to decide on Monday about the schools remaining cosed for the year or open up.   Some one said June 1 is the date for us to start opening up in phases.   but I haven't heard that officially We have to meet certain goals first one is #'s going down for 14 days straight.   I know there are a lot more criteria we have to meet as well But so vague.  I hope we can do this schedule of alternating working from home through the summer   :D  The only good thing about this but That may just be me being selfish. I am getting so spoiled about the commuting no traffic at all when I go in.   I just dont want to go back to bumper to bumper .  I  saw  that they are only allowing 50% capacity at the parks.  AT at 10am the parking lots were at full capacity allowed.  OH I hope this doesn't bring out numbers up....

O! Happy Day Cheerios!  :)

(((LBL)))  You must've been so relieved to get news that your brother was doing well after his procedure.  Prayers continue for his healing and comfort.  You are smart to be careful about people getting too close.  I'm glad you're getting good weather for your walks today - Yay!  :)  I hope you wear a mask on your walks, or have one ready to put on, in case others are along your path.  6 feet distancing is the minimum.  It's a gorgeous day here, too.

paulie, that's good you were able to get your grass cut before it got taller.  Don't overdue!  I think your husband was smart not to stop at that store.  I have been disappointed by seeing so many people at the grocery store who aren't wearing masks or maintaining 6 feet distancing.  I don't like feeling afraid just because I'm picking up some groceries - I get in and out as fast as I can, and try not to go very often.  I believe people have a moral responsibility to follow the guidelines to help protect others in their community.  I believe it is selfish not to.  It is a matter of life and death, and it bugs me that some people scoff at the risks involved.  I waited to go to the grocery store last night after dinner, before it closed early for overnight re-stocking and cleaning.  I thought it would be less crowded then than waiting until the weekend - especially with all the pretty weather we have this weekend here.

Have a good Saturday, All!   Enjoy, and please stay as safe as you can.   :)
Hi baz, Yep husband was smart! Good! I agree about others not taking this and guidelines seriously. Same here when going to store .... in and out ... and always watching to be sure others stay at social distance. So important! Wow some people at your stores don't wear masks. In my state masks are mandatory for a while now. Some guy at a local store here actually walked into store without a mask on .. the store employee counting people going in and checking for masks called out for him to stop ... nope he kept walking towards the second entry door ... employee yellled "Calling Security now!! Well Mr. Cocky guy turned around and left. Good!!
Very wise decision on your part choosing a safer time to go grocery shopping.

Hey baz, Don't overdo ...... Hmmm today I'm going to power wash my upper deck floor, railings and stairs then the same to the lower porch that's the width of the house. Then set out the rug, furniture and umbrellas. Is that overdoing? yep! But needs done so I'm determined to "git 'er done!" Then relax time for sure.  ;D

My first humming bird came to the feeder yesterday.  Big rush to get the feeder ready :)

Yesterday was my granddaughter's 2nd birthday.  Luckily we were able to have a "virtual" party for her.  Cannot wait to be able to kiss and hug her again.  Miss her terribly.....

Going into the "war zone" to do some grocery shopping.  Hate this feeling.  Aside from fear, I'm so angry....

Have a good, healthy one all.  Beautiful day today.

Thanks for asking Jacaji.  He developed a temperature of 101.9  So they are testing him for covid again. He should know tomorrow.    I am getting nervous. I was on hold to speak to the nurse but they are busy at the moment (which I expect them to be)  I have to call back in 30 minutes.  I am not sure if he is telling me everything.    I am sure he is not asking them questions.   

Its good you got to do a virtual party....  I now not the same but you got to see her..   Hopefully soon you can see her.

paulie, I know I misspelled overdo - used the form for payment being past due instead of using the form for someone doing too much of something - like you sound like you are going to do today?  ;) :D  Well, I guess I don't understand why it all has to be done on the same day - you going out of town and need it done before you leave or something?  Why overdo if you know in advance that it's overdoing?   ???  LOL.  Anyway, I know you will enjoy it after it's all done!  :)  I wish masks were a requirement to be worn by all when in public in my state.  It isn't.  But some businesses have made it a requirement of their employees, and some few places of business require it of anyone entering their business... but not the grocery stores here.  My state is still officially under stay-at-home orders, but it looks like we may move into Phase 1 of re-opening later this coming week.  Our schools are closed for the remainder of this academic year, with distance learning continuing for the remainder of the academic year.  Some states are not following the guidelines for phased re-opening.  And some people aren't following the recommended distancing and masks, and gathering in groups even as that is included in the phased re-opening guidelines.  I expect their numbers will rise, and quickly.  You can't fix stupid.  It's really sad that some people will die who wouldn't have because of that.  I think the courthouses may be log-jammed for a long time with lawsuits after this has all blown to the wind.

LBL, enjoy the rest of your weekend!  It's nice to get a break from all the heavy traffic - and the related noise.  I have noticed how much quieter it is outside during the shutdown.  Maybe you will be saving some on expenditures, too, since you won't be needing to buy as much gas, and less wear and tear on your car, too.  Yay for your brother doing well - prayers for his continued healing and comfort, and I hope he is home again soon!  :)

Hi tig.  :)

O! Happy Day, Cheerios!  :)
Hi baz, Please don't misunderstand. I wasn't pointing out the spelling between the two. I highlighted the word to emphasize I was going to overdo. Lol Honest. I power washed everything deck wise at once because to me I can't stop till it's done like not stopping painting a wall half way through. Just me.  ::) Then after it's all done I want to set up furniture etc just to get it all done at that point. It did get done except I didn't have it in me to get the tiered water fountain set up and I did not power wash the bottom porch. I ran out of time  and energy. I apparently don't have all the energy I used to!! Man I miss those days!!

I agree with you 100% about not all people following the guidelines. It's definitely frustrating for sure. Same with some in my area. Yep!! I agree ... you can't fix stupid!! And it's worrisome and a shame.

You'll hug and kiss her in the future though.  ;D I understand how you feel about the hugging and kissing her. My youngest granddaughter asks when we face time, Mommom, when this "birus" is over can we pleeeease have a sleepover?"  Awww God love her. Honestly I'm looking forward to a sleepover too when this "birus" is over.

Very cool about your Hummingbird. Yay for you! Still none at my feeders yet.

I hope your grocery shopping went well. I and I think all of us agree about fear and anger.

Geez, now the 'quote' is on my laptop screen again.

LB, I'm praying for negative covid test result for your brother again. Negative one and negative twice is the prayer!! Have you called back and been able to speak to a nurse yet?

I understand your stress and worry. One of my adult children with underlying issues was tested last week for covid. Oh my to my worry and even imagining being tested then tons and tons of prayers until result was finally received. Yes it is the ultimate scare and worry!! Result was negative. Thank you God. I'm saying prayers for your brother. Please let us know when you hear about his result.

Yes I spoke to nurse.  He still has chest  tubes in from surgery. They will be getting removed today.    He is on oxygen  still, they try to remove and wean him off he didn't  do too well.  so they put him back on it.  He does get up and sits in the chair,  SO he is telling me the truth. My brother has a habit of lying at times.  He is depressed.   There has been family issues for the past 2 years and he regrets everything he suffers from depression.    My father is not so supportive and it killed me that he was wishing for our mom.  I am so scared for him.    He's there all by himself..  we cant visit.

Paulie....Yes, my hummingbirds are back full force!!  I feel so bad for them right now though.  We had to take the feeder down for a couple of hours.  We had the guy come who sprays for bugs outside and didn't  want to contaminate the feeder!!  They have been looking for it!!

Grocery shopping went OK.  Looked for some Campbell's mushroom soup.  None to be found.   Looks like the canned soups are making a big comeback and people are buying them up fast.

Have a good one everyone.  Beautiful outside today.

Yes I spoke to nurse.  He still has chest  tubes in from surgery. They will be getting removed today.    He is on oxygen  still, they try to remove and wean him off he didn't  do too well.  so they put him back on it.  He does get up and sits in the chair,  SO he is telling me the truth. My brother has a habit of lying at times.  He is depressed.   There has been family issues for the past 2 years and he regrets everything he suffers from depression.    My father is not so supportive and it killed me that he was wishing for our mom.  I am so scared for him.    He's there all by himself..  we cant visit.
LB, Same here feeling sad for your brother and definitely prayers continue for him and for you and your family too. Maybe this can bring your family closer maybe? In any event it's nice your brother has you!
I would have replied earlier today but I was gone with my husband to an appointment this morning and we just returned about 15 minutes ago.
Please let us know any updates when you get them. You take care LB.

Hi jicaji, Geez to your hummingbirds. I'm sure they were happy when you hung feeders back up! Interesting isn't it how different shelves are empty and others stocked?  Our stores here are getting more strict with shoppers keeping distance and clerks are sanitizing and wiping things down after each customer leaves.

Hi baz, waving back.

It's supposed to rain again tomorrow and temps drop then lows in 30s by this weekend. I'm heading out to mow again .. just mowed Friday. Since the last fertilization the lawn got it's growing faster than I can keep up with it!! It needs mowed again so today the best before rain and dropping temps then probably a time lapse before mowing again. Yay.

LB, will check in later for any update.

Thanks everyone   Not good news. He was tested positive for covid 19.  He did get the tubes removed from his chest. His temp went down to 100.9 They transferred him to the covid floor. He still has his own room but there is another bed in there. He is still on oxygen his level is 95 with oxygen not sure what it is without it but he does struggle.  The surgeon said his reaching should improve with the tubes removed.

Oh my gosh LB I am so so very very sorry about your brother's testing positive!!  God bless your brother and He will. Is there any way you can communicate with him so he has that? And you too. Does he have his phone with him? Maybe you two could face time but that depends on how he's feeling, hospital rules etc and if he took his phone charger with him. I don't mean to ramble but thinking of him and his worries etc and you too. Good to surgeon saying his breathing should improve with tubes being removed. Please continue updates. Prayers and LOTS of them continue for your brother. Hugs to you too.

Well today I had a first time experience. Long story short .. lawn needed mowed today or tomorrow .. chose today even tho temps in mid 40s because rain Monday and next week .. was mowing along nicely then snow flurries for about 15 minutes .. yep! I was surprised .. lol .. no way was I going to stop so just continued mowing along with the flurries. There's a first time for everything and today was mine. Lol  ;D

Wishing everyone a relaxing night and restful sleep. SED

UPDATE: I am sure you are tired of me by now. 😜 I just got off the phone with his nurse and Michael. The nurse always tells him I call and informs him what we talk about and then my brother will call to find out what the nurse had to say on his health .. 😂 He is improving. He sounds good too!! Tomorrow will be 4 days that he hasn't had temperature. Sunday will be 4 weeks that he has been in the hospital and he wants to go home now!!!! They have him on 4 liters of oxygen (I think he was at 50l before) and his levels runs from 94%-96% which is awesome. His chest tubes were removed today and they xrayed his lungs Still some junk in there but not enough to prevent them from removing the tubes. He is complain about his legs. They burn him I have told him as well as the nurse to get up and move the legs around a bit. I told him to do chair squats and leg lifts from chair. Hopefully he continues to improved and gets to go home soon!!

Hi LB, Excellent news about your brother!! Nope! I'm not tired of your brother's updates. No way. Keep them coming.  :)
All of today's update news sounds very good .. even his lungs. They've had a battle for sure and will need more time for all the junk to be gone .. but progress for sure!! I think your suggestions about using his legs are very good. Fingers crossed and prayers continue for his continued progress and until you update with your brother is going home!  ;)

Good Afternoon, No new updates except my brother think he may be able to go home tomorrow. I think he is just hoping. I cant see him going home so fast.  I would think they would retest him to see if he is negative especially since he will be going home to his 2 kids.  Because they would need to still stay away from him

Hi LB, It sounds like your brother must still be holding at normal temp if he's thinking he might go home tomorrow. That's good but I agree with you about retesting him unless it's determined it's not needed with no temp? I don't know all the protocols. You have nieces and/or nephews! I did't know that.  :) True about testing and keeping them apart if need be. Please update what happens tomorrow. I hope you can enjoy your weekend.

This morning was shopping for flowers for one of my daughters who can't due to her health and virus. This afternoon I attacked my vegetable garden to weed, turn over soil then add more soil then plant. Geez it took all afternoon till evening .. but veggies are planted and spreading their roots to grow.  ;D Holy mud I'm glad that's done and tired. Tomorrow I have to mow before a few days of rain next week. (That's when I plan to clean inside the house .. much needed.) Dang the grass is growing fast between the day's of mowing this year with rain and warmer temps. I'm not complaining. I always say I'd rather mow than shovel snow.  ;D

That being said Good Night all and SED.

Last week, my husband, while carrying down the laundry, tripped on the last couple of steps.  Luckily, he fell on the basket of clothes, but three days later, he feels he either pulled a muscle or has a pinched nerve in his right shoulder blade.  He's so uncomfortable.  Finally, tomorrow he's calling the doctor!!!  Hopefully the Dr. will prescribe a muscle relaxer or pain meds.

Today, for the first time, we saw a little Blue indigo at our bird feeder.  It's the little things, ya know???

Have a safe, healthy week everyone.

Hopefully they can provide relief.  No My nephews didn't come to pick up the items they said today.  I was like excuse me but it's Monday and some people need to work.   (we wont get in on it with them)   I am working from home though.  but I doubt they will come today as well.  They aren't very reliable. I am waiting for co workers to provide reports so I can start my work for the day.  I hope its an easy day at work.   I am watching the news and looking how people are NOT social distancing or wearing masks as places open up.   Gets me nervous   I'm glad I really don't do anything

Hi LB, Darn to your nephews not picking up the items. I hope once your brother is home and if his sons work outside the house or go places they'll wash their hands a lot when returning home and have sanitizer to wipe down items that come from a store. I'm sure your brother is going to be very careful after everything he's been through!!
Same thing in my area with some people not wearing masks and social distancing. They say they're tired of the rules. Well I'm sure they wouldn't say that if they got the virus!! Some people!!
My county goes into what's call the 'yellow phase' this Friday which means gatherings of up to 25 people allowed and some stores reopening but not all stores. We're still supposed to wear masks and social distance. Pet groomers are opening but not hair salons or barber shops. I don't understand that. Oh boy do I need a hair cut .. not a trim as usual like I get every 4 weeks but a cut!! lol Same with my husband. Well I'm sure most everyone does.

I'm wondering if your brother is discharged and home yet. Hope so!!

All quotes are good!

Hi He's still in hospital. But he will be discharged shortly (today...this evening) The doctor wsas questioning his diabetes.   Yes he have it's down to 150. The dr was questioning who will give him the meds etc.  sadly he wasnt taking care of himself prior to all this.  HIs diabetes was 500 when admitted to hospital.  Hopefully he takes better care of himself. 

My town is going into "phase 1"  Out door eating and curb side pickup(put curb side was allowed the whole time) , out door activities like batting cages, golf, tennis, and retail curb side pick up only.  Beaches at 50% capacity not sure how they will control that.   cuting parking lots wont help a lot of parking is done in the streets plus all the locals and people renting houses that can walk to the beach.  I am not a beach person so I am good,   LOL

Geez LB, Long day. The Dr questioning his diabetes is good. 500 when your brother was admitted was high. Does he have Type 1 or 2 diabetes? Does he take insulin? My husband has Type 2 and wow 500 is high. Yes I agree hopefully this is a wake up call for your brother. Plus he's going to have a portable oxygen tank. You posted about 2 hours ago before I read this. I'm thinking it would be nice if they allowed your brother to go home tomorrow in the morning rather than night to give him time to set up a bit and settle in. I'm sure he's anxious to go home though.
Interesting about your phase 1 and understandable how capacity will be able to be enforced. What a mess this is everywhere. It sure is good you're not a beach person!!

LB....So happy your brother is home.  He surely went through alot, as did your family worrying about him.  You can all take a deep breath now :)

My husband decided to go a Chiropractor, after his Dr. passed him off to an ortho, which he didn't want to start with. 

The Chiropractor, who he's gone to over the years, manipulated the area, gave him an ultrasound and vibration massage treatment. He goes back tomorrow.  He's still uncomfortable, but hopefully will get better soon.  What works really well for him, is "Icy Hot with Lidocaine."  An over the counter pain cream.

Thanks for asking.

Have a good one everyone.

Hi jicaji, Sometimes things just aren't easy, right? The chiropractic manipulation and other things will help his muscles readjust I'm thinking so good that he goes again tomorrow to help more. Ironically I just told my husband the other day I wish my chiropractor hadn't retired or I'd want to make an appointment for my hip. My parent's sent us to one when we were growing up and I did the same with each of my children, especially my sons during football season's practices and games. The OTC creams you mention should help too. Hope so.

Paulie, A few years back I had sciatica...went to the Chiro and she fixed it after a few visits.  I remember my mother going to a Chiro years and years ago after her Dr. telling her she needed a hip replacement.  Well, after a few manipulations from the Chiro, she was fine!!

Have a good day all.

Good Morning LB, Awww that's nice and a very happy feeling when you play the song too. You went through a lot along with your brother so you have a good reason to play and enjoy that song for sure.

I'm sorry about his rough day yesterday with incision pain. Will a visiting nurse be able to check on him and it's and his healing process? Maybe home visits aren't possible under the circumstances but I'm sure his Dr or nurse will call or telemed to check in with him and his progress healing and oxygen use and his diabetes. Geez he has a lot on his plate still. Prayers continue for his healing. Keep the updates coming.

#1 and thanks again for the quotes LB.   :)

Good Morning jicaji, Great news about how chiropractic helped your sciatica and your mother's hips. I definitely believe that and how the manipulations help correct different issues. It's all connected.
My family has a similar story of how it helped one of my sister's when she was a young child and averted an issue that many doctors were scratching their heads about. After a while chiropractic solved it. Thumbs up.

You have a good day too.  :)

Hi LB, Good news about your brother. Considering what all he's been through a new outlook makes sense. Very true let's hope it continues. It is very good that you spoke with him 3 times today. I remember you mentioning in the past that your brother has talked about your mother. It sounds like he's struggling with some issues and honestly it's wonderful that he has you to talk to. I've said this before and I repeat ... you are an awesome sister to him. He needs you for sure. Good news about the home nurse and things look good and his insurance help. All will work out.
That's right! You love the wind!! I forgot.  Oh poor Copper. I'm glad his nails are clipped and he's walking better. ((Copper))
Oh my LB, You've had a full day with it all. You take care and sleep good I hope. Here's a hug for you too. ((LB))  :)

Yes relief with my brother now the worry goes on to my father.    He had cancer in his right lung a few years ago.... VERY tiny nodule. They found another nodule on his left lung this check up and it's cancer. supposedly a slow growing one.  He is weighing his options.  Operate radiation or do nothing (It's slow growing)   He was going to do the radiation because the spot where it is they will need to remove 25% of his lung.  The surgeon do nothing at this time.  I think he is going to speak with someone else.   But it's not like he needs to start something today. boy it's always something, isnt????

Oh my heavens LB ... yes apparently always something! Girl! ...  You've got the strength and shoulders to carry this new additional concern and worry too. Oh man LB. God bless you .. and your father .. brother, and all of your family. I'll tell you one thing. All families have their ups and downs .. and divisions and reconciling .. and with all that your family has been through and now with another worry and concern for your father .. it appears that life is very possibly working and bringing your family through difficult times to culminate in one heck of a happy loving family get-together in the future. I sure hope so.

In the meantime LB, my prayers continue for your brother and also for your father and for you too my friend. You are a strong awesome lady and your family is lucky to have you. Take care.

Hi LB, Good idea for a rainy cloudy day to look at new places to move to. Good planning on your part. It would be nice if you could find a pretty townhouse with an enclosed backyard like you had before. The right place is out there waiting for you to find it when you can look in person.

Hi LB, Yesterday sounds relaxing and pleasant for you. Good! Geez to your weather today. It's warm and sunny in my area today and we usually have the pretty much the same weather. Maybe today's different for you because you're state is more along the coast. And Oh My!! Noooo don't say you're can't wait for fall!! No no no. LOL I'm definitively not ready for that.   ;)

Well today is a very different holiday. Me and my husband are missing our usual family cookout get-together and being able to be with family. Things will eventually change for the better and with hopefully better healthier choices for all. 

I'm keeping busy with edging sidewalks and weed whacking the heck out of everything. lol

Later today hubby and I are going to grill dinner then this evening use the chimnea for the first time that I got for him. He's wanted one for a long time but had to be a specific type and I finally found and ordered it!!  ;D After working then a shower and dinner I do believe a relaxing drink by the chimnea is in order.  ;)

I wish everyone a relaxing pleasant day. We all will and do make the best of things.
Take care. Later ...

Hi baz, Yes we sure did enjoy and relax yesterday evening. While talking yesterday we decided to take a "road trip" as my husband calls them when we travel even a shorter distance since we've been pretty much going out for just groceries or other necessities.

Well this morning was really a road trip to western PA where we have land in the mountain. Western PA counties are all in green phase so everything can open but still masks and distancing to be adhered to. About a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive from where we live. We enjoyed the drive and at our place with literally no one around then drove to two nearby towns we're familiar with but had decided we probably would not go into stores. Well we didn't because we saw only one person with a mask going into a store and saw others thru store windows with no masks and we weren't sure if sanitizing was being done or social distancing so we just enjoyed driving around then back to property for a while then came home early this evening. Better to be safe than sorry still. Definitely a pleasant get away today.

You take care and stay safe too.

Hi to All the Cheerios!  :)

paulie, that sounds like it was a nice road trip for real!  Glad you could get away for the day - and I think you were smart to stay safe the way you did.  I don't know what part of western PA you were in, but I had a chance to see the area in and around Pittsburgh some years back, where I would travel for a project I was managing in the mid-90s.  Beautiful area, and lots to see and do in the city, but pretty countryside, mountains, and smaller nearby towns, too.  Loved Mount Washington, too - great food, and spectacular views!!  I got to visit a lot of different places over the 3 years I spent managing a project with a company there.  I'm surprised you and your husband didn't spend the night - maybe your property there doesn't have a home on it, or maybe you just needed to get home.  Sounds like a nice, long outing.  :)

Hi LBL!  Did you work in the office, or at home, today?  (((LBL and Copper)))  Sending wishes for your brother and father for healing and comfort.

G'night Cheerios.  Take care and stay safe.  SED.
Hi baz, Thanks and yes definitely pleasant and relaxing. I remember in the past when you and I discussed Pittsburgh how much you liked it there. Your job there sounds like it was intensive. Before I retired I had to go to meetings in Pgh and some overnight stays at the Hilton and I loved Pgh and restaurants, sights etc. Definitely a fun place. One of my sons went to IUP for all of his degrees finishing with his PhD and we'd all go to Pgh too. He's the one who teaches at App State in Boone, N.C. another place you're familiar with.  :)  The property my husband and I have  is in Clearfield County. Too far for Pgh yesterday and yep we had to return making it a one day trip. I'm sure you got very familiar with Pgh and surrounding areas after three years. Very cool.

You take care and stay safe too.

Very pleasant productive day. After torrential rains last night I mowed today with a great breeze then watched the SpaceX lift off then trimmed around all the fence posts .. a lot of them! Time for a warm shower and evening by chiminea along with something to sip on and I don't mean coffee. ;D

Hi baz, The launch was awesome and watching afterwards inside the capsule and outside too. Very cool!! I watched on a news channel. No interruptions so very good.

Take care all. Enjoy your evening I hope. Prayers for Minneapolis and surrounding areas.

Hi LB, I hope you enjoyed today with your pleasant weather. Same here with weather and protests nearby too. It got rowdy and one or two police were hurt. How was the one in your area? Peaceful I hope.

Watching the astronauts dock today and enter and celebrate in the space station was exciting. It's all awesome I think.

Hi all,

LB, I hope your week so far is going good.

#2 Thanks for posting LB.

My lower back 'went out' yesterday morning. Haven't a clue why but has happened before. Geez it was more nasty painful this time but better today.
Had a heck of a storm earlier today. Might go to 90 today. The one wind gust was so strong I haven't a clue how nothing blew off deck. I put on my waterproof hooded long winter coat lol and went onto deck to move everything closer to deck door. Rain was hammering down. Hood and coat drenched but I was dry underneath. Good! More storms possible but okay because I love warm late spring and summer weather.

Hi LB, Wonderful news about your brother! Good about him doing PT. He went through a lot in a month for sure!!

Those are rather close quarters at work. The partition is by the person's computer across from you but geez it doesn't extend the entire length to the wall dividing you. The partition is big though and that's good. Is there no partition between you and the person's desk to the right of your chair because it's probably 6 feet or more away? Probably.  I'm wondering if you'll all be required to wear masks inside. Thanks for posing the pictures.

Hi baz, Lol You're welcome. Agreed to the working space from years back for me too.. much smaller 'back in the day'. Yep my back is still better. Knock on wood!! Thanks for asking. I got a lot done today and this evening is why I'm posting late. Sometimes I don't know when to quit!

Oh LB, Sorry to hear that. Are masks still required to be worn at work? Hopefully so in case anyone sneezes or coughs. It's amazing how everyone's 'new normal' has changed both at the workplace and out.

Beautiful sunny warm/hot day here. I got all the trimming done around base of all trees earlier while still in the shade. Was breezy, quiet and pleasant. Time now to begin cooking one of my children's birthday meal. They each get to choose their birthday meal every year.
More stores and restaurants are opening in my area now and finally hair salons and barber shops this Friday. Woo hoo!

LB, I hope your day is going smoothly.

Post by: paulie on June 10, 2020, 07:56:22 PM
Hi LB, I came here last night to post to you. I think it was about 11pm or so. As I was writing my post one of my daughters called me and we were on the phone until 1am!! By the time we hung up I was really tired. This morning my husband wanted to do errands and some other things. We did and we were gone most of the day. I haven't eaten dinner yet! I just want to explain. So ... anyway what I was going to say last night it ...

I think it's understandable why you're so worried about everyone going back into work on Monday considering the last three months of pandemic! and all that your brother went through that you know he experienced.

That being said I think most state's believe it's time to return to some kind of normalcy with precautions. Not all employers though. On the early morning news it was reported that a lot of companies are considering allowing employees to continue working from home until maybe this Fall and some going to permanent work from home for some positions. I do remember you said in the past that someone is need in office to do the printing. 

Hopefully your workplace will have someone check employees temps upon arrival like I've heard some companies are and of course masks required, hand washing and hand sanitizer required too.

Did you hear anything more at work today about everyone returning?

Sorry for the long post but I finally got to say what I had intended to last some and some more!  ;)
Title: Re: Cheers 2020
Post by: paulie on June 10, 2020, 07:57:15 PM
LB! Hi!  :) I hope you read my post before leaving for the night. I'm going to read your quotes now.  :)

Modified: Ok I read them.  ;D   #2  Thanks again LB for continuing to post them. You take care. XO
Title: Re: Cheers 2020
Post by: paulie on June 10, 2020, 08:04:40 PM
LBL, it seems if things have gone okay without everyone in the office together, that they would want to keep the risk lower and keep doing it the way they have.  Oh well, it's just a rumor for now, so maybe it won't happen that way.  I learned that a lot of work rumors never pan out exactly the way the rumor has it.  May as well not get too worried over something that hasn't happened.  I know... easy to say.  But worth trying to do if you can.  Hang in there!

paulie, nice you got the yard work done before it was too hot.  Hope your back didn't mind.

G'night ((Cheerios)).  Peace and Comfort.  SED.
Hi baz, Yep it was pleasant yesterday. Today's high here was 89 with heat index of 97. Holy! When my husband and I were out and about today in the Jeep was very comfy and cool but walking through parking lots with a mask on was torture.
And yes my back didn't mind yesterday too much. Thanks. It was definitely sore afterwards. It was okay today because I was more focused on trying to breath!  I got through it tho.  :)

How are things with you?
Title: Re: Cheers 2020
Post by: paulie on June 11, 2020, 10:26:59 AM
Hi baz, Good to know that you're fine. Sounds like you're dealing with life's up and downs .. roller coaster .. easier said than done sometimes.
It sounds like your area and mine will be dealing with the same weather system with rain in forecast in my area in a few days. That means I mow today ... again.  ::)

Make it a good day. Take care.
Title: Re: Cheers 2020
Post by: paulie on June 11, 2020, 06:34:14 PM
paulie, yes. Be careful mowing in the oppressively humid heat.  :)

Hi LBL!  Tomorrow is Friday - hang in there!  :)

Happy Day, Cheerios!
Hi baz, Yep mowing is done. Today was warm yes but wow to the wind and strong breezes after the storms yesterday. Made it much nicer mowing.

LB, Where are you? What baz said .. tomorrow is Friday.

Comfort and Peace to you too baz.

Hi I am hear relaxing.  I am off tomorrow. WEll finally we will still alternate working from home.   I thinks its only because I said my concerns to another manager and he said something to the higher ups.  I told him they dont ask us for our opinions in how we feel.   My boss finally admitted that these partions was a fail. my question is why are thye still on the desk than.  I said all my concerns so now we continue to alternate working from home until they fix some of the issues. which they will probably gt done by next week by doing a half ass job.  I told them we are too close and too open. too many people use the printers. I sit back to back with one of my co workers and they there answer is a rolling wal  . shaking my head   LOL

Post by: paulie on June 11, 2020, 10:06:05 PM
LB, Good that you're relaxing and you have off tomorrow. Woo hoo. Good news also that work will remain with alternating working from hone and in office. Good for you for expressing your concerns and the results that came about. Kudos to you. I guess they made an attempt with the partitions but very good your boss admitted they are a fail. If you sit so close back-to-back with a co-worker maybe they could move that person's desk to another area. I guess that depends if the room is large enough.

A question. Is NJ 'open' enough with allowances that you'll now be able to look for a new place to move to? I do remember you can rent month to month when your lease is up. I'm still hoping you can find a place with an enclosed yard for you and Copper like you had before.

Enjoy your day off tomorrow!

Yes Nj is now open starting Monday with restrictions still masks and social distancing and limits on inside stuff still not 100%. Salon open june 22. still not date for gyms. The  office is too small to move desk around thy can redo with cubicles but too cheap to do so. I found a condo I like waiting to hear back I requested in on an app there is no phone number to call.  My lease is up june 30.  than month to month With no increase. Now that we are semi open not  sure if and when they will be giving me a new lease once they do I have 60 days to  move out if I dont agree to stay I have a feeling they will be raising rent so I have no choice. I hope all have good day

Good Morning LB, Awesome that you found a condo! I wish there was a phone number you could call. I hope you hear back soon so you're not in limbo. Please let me know when you hear something.

Hmmm since your office is too small to move desks around maybe the co-worker you sit back to back with can be scheduled to work from home the week you're in office.
 
Great to another beautiful day at your place. Same here. I even had the air conditioner off last night and we slept with windows open.
Enjoy your Copper walks.

All 3 quotes are excellent today!

Hi back at ya baz.  :)

Today is my oldest granddaughter's 13th birthday. Awesome! I retired 13 years ago to watch and care for her. I did that for 4 years straight and boy oh boy she and I are still very close to this day.
I miss not being able to have family parties at my house. One of my daughter's birthday was last week too. This virus has changed so many many things for all of our country that we used to take for granted. Won't do that again! Lesson learned.

LOL.  I hope she has a fun day with treats and special surprises!  :)
Hi baz, Thank you about the birthday wishes for both. Yep granddaughter is a teenager now! True about how you said you felt turning 13. Lol  She's happy being 13 but when I saw her yesterday to give her presents my granddaughter hugged me (she asked me if she could hug me saying pleeeease! I couldn't resist and loved our hug) then she said she still wishes she was my little girl growing up when I watched her daily. She's a sweetheart and also now taller than me!

It was nice and all our children and grandchildren called and sent him texts and gave him cards/presents they and I planned ahead and they got them to me. One of our daughter's stopped by this evening with his card and gift and we stood in the yard and visited.

Tomorrow is woo hoo! Hubby has appt for hair cut with barber and I have appt for my hair cut/styling too now that my salon is reopened. Will feel good for sure!

Then the next day, Thursday, is one of my sons birthday. Yep! lol June is a busy birthday month on the 2nd, 9th, 15th, 16th and 18th. I should play those numbers in the lottery.  ;D

Hi!! Father's day was good.  except my fathers girl friend was giving a hard time because we went in the house.  We should have went around the side of the house .  I told her I had to bring food in to put in refrigerator/ Plus go to the bathroom . My fathers hair got so long, he looks like a hippy!!!  My brothers old neighbor built a salon in her basement long time ago. legit. permits and all.  Salons opened today in NJ.  My brother said he could go with him and she will cut it.  My fathers girlfriend wouldn't allow him.  I don't know about her now.  Work did go fast today.   Hoping  I get to work from home next week. so far nothing chnage to make us more protected ut who knows. Boy I sound like a complainer lately.   LOL

Awww LB. God bless you. You're a sweetheart. I apologize for worrying you. True I've been MIA a few days. I came here to the last post to begin to catch up and say yours. I've been under the weather as the saying goes. Then on top of that I had to accompany my husband to some of his appointments. He drove. I just didn't have it in me to drive but important appts for him. We wore our masks and always have hand sanitizer in our pockets and use it frequently then once once home wash hands for 20 seconds. I'm not 100% yet but doing better. I'm here!  ;D That's a thumbs up for me because I've been wanting to read how your Father's Day get together went and also to see how you and others here are. So! ...... I'm going to do some catch up reading now and read your quotes then post some more. Love ya LB.  ;) :-*

Hi everyone:

Hope you all had a good weekend and Happy Father's Day, despite all the "stuff" going on in this country!!

Hi jicaji! Great to 'see' you.  :) I agree about all of the "stuff" going on in this country. Very disturbing and sad for sure.

O! Happy Day, Cheerios!  :)

Hi jicaji and paulie!  I hope the weekend was nice.

Hi LBL.  :)  I know it's Monday-in-the-office day for you, but I hope it goes fast.  I hope your family BBQ didn't get rained out, and you had a nice time visiting each other.

Have a great day, Cheerios!  :)
Hi back at ya baz!  :) I hope all is good with you.

Hi!! Father's day was good.  except my fathers girl friend was giving a hard time because we went in the house.  We should have went around the side of the house .  I told her I had to bring food in to put in refrigerator/ Plus go to the bathroom . My fathers hair got so long, he looks like a hippy!!!  My brothers old neighbor built a salon in her basement long time ago. legit. permits and all.  Salons opened today in NJ.  My brother said he could go with him and she will cut it.  My fathers girlfriend wouldn't allow him.  I don't know about her now.  Work did go fast today.   Hoping  I get to work from home next week. so far nothing chnage to make us more protected ut who knows. Boy I sound like a complainer lately.   LOL
LB, I'm glad Father's Day was good. Sorry about your father's girlfriend and your having to go to the bathroom. Geez. I'm lauging about you saying your father looks like a hippy with long hair. It's been a while since he could get a hair cut for sure. Did you take a photo? I did of my husbands hair ... long and curly. lol It was very nice of your brother saying they could go together for a hair cut. Special and fun I think. I'm thinking your father's girlfriend is trying to protect him from the virus.

Now some questions. Was Father's Day pleasant visiting and seeing everyone? I hope so. It had to be great to finally see your brother after all he had been through! How is he feeling and doing now? It sounds like he's doing good and even going for a hair cut. Were your nephews there too?

What's happening with work? Can you still alternate working from home and going into work?

And NO! You don't sound like a complainer! You're just talking about life and whatever. That's okay with me.  :)

As the days go by we will be seeing the eagles less and less. Many of you have asked when chat will close. Our final day of scheduled chat will be on Friday, July 3, 2020 at 8 pm central time. Final chat will follow our normal scheduled chat hours. Remember, we will open flash chats when there is eagle activity and mods are available.
Thanks jfrancl for the info.

I have a question Cheerios. We're hearing about the final day of chat. Where is the time going??!! Slow down time!!

Good morning to all,

Hi LB, Hopefully if storms are bad yes they will go north of you. Hopefully no bad ones anywhere. I understand about you'd like a good thunder storm. Me too sometimes. There's just something about watching the sky and clouds approach and just a plain good old thunder storm and watching and hearing it from inside.
How's the PT going?

LB, Did you get a thunder storm?

Geez I slept in this morning then slept away most of this afternoon. Must have needed it. It's time to go out to refill the bird feeders and birdbath's in prep for tomorrow. I've been having to refill the feeders more often. Lots of more adult and baby beaks to fill.  :)

Wishing all a pleasant evening and night. Take care.

Hi LB, Geez you missed yesterday's storms too. Is it hot and sunny there today and expected all week?
It is here. Highs 88 and 90 all this week here and no rain in forecast. I mowed today because the dew point and humidity is lower and a really nice breeze. The breeze is what saved me lol because it was hot. It takes me 1 and 1/2 hour to mow it all at one time. I was determined not to stop today and just get it done at one time and I did! Good. Now maybe with no rain and higher temps the grass won't grow as fast.

Well you're working from home this week in your place comfy with air conditioning. Good. And Copper gets to have his mom home with him.  :) Is this your short week with Friday off or was that last week? I think this week.

Hi LB and thanks. I was glad to finish too. lol Good about Friday. You'll have a nice longer weekend. Aww to Copper's confusion but very glad the week you work from home for sure. Of course he loves you soooo much! You are the best mom that he could have. Maybe he is being protective of you with other people and dogs .. just wanting to keep his mom to himself. Smaller walks in the heat sounds like a good idea. Can you maybe take some water and small bowl or plastic container with water and lid for him to drink during the walk? I used to do that with my big 'ol Zeus. You have me chuckling about him being stubborn. Copper?? Nah.  ;) Give him a hug from me please.

O! Happy Day, Cheerios!  :)

Thunderstormy weather expected here starting around lunchtime, so I'm trying to get in my computer-related time this morning before it starts.  My PC is an oldie, and I am hoping it will hang in there till next year, so I unplug it when there are big storms around, even though it's on a strip - I don't trust it, and I can't afford to buy a new computer right now.  ::)

LOL LBL, Copper is a lovable character.  :)  He knows he is safe with you and happy you gave him a great forever home.  :-*  Enjoy your Friday off for a long 4th of July weekend!

paulie, great you got your yardwork done!  Now you can enjoy and relax.  Ugh, I remember those hot, humid days of mowing the yard!

Hi jicaji!  :)
Hi baz, Yes to relaxing now! I'm very sure you don't miss mowing on hot humid days. Now you have a pretty and interesting bog to look out onto.  :)

Hi Tig  :) It's nice you read here every day. I'm glad you posted. Now ... hmmmm ... I'm going to ask what is probably a dumb question. Why is your stool getting a little tall? I've had a couple thoughts but not sure. In any event, if you want to sit on the floor I'll sit there with you. We'll have less of a fall ... clink! .. or I will.  ;D  Oh. Wait a minute. If I sit on the floor I'd probably have a heck of a time getting up! lol

Good morning LB. Your saying Copper didn't want to walk this morning reminded me of your saying he is stubborn. Nope! I don't want to go mom! lol
Awesome that you walked the distance in half the time and didn't need to use your cane.
Sounds like you made the correct decision not doing another round of walking to start work on time. There's nothing like starting your day with a little stress. Geez. Maybe after work you can do two rounds if not too warm outside.

Today finally a guy is supposed to do repair work on the backyard grape arbor. It's a good size and old .. been there for years since my hubby built it. The high winds this Spring has it leaning and blew some of the top cross beams off. Two separate guys came here to look at it and each said they'd return to fix it but were no shows. Never even contacted me to say why. That's rude. So we're very happy this guy said he'll be here today to repair it. It's very full of branches that are all leafed out and grape bunches hanging down and some low spots where top boards fell off so this should be interesting. Fingers crossed!!

Wishing everyone a good day. Take care and stay safe.

Hi LB, Geesh sorry I'm so delayed replying. Yes he showed up and did a great repair job. All the new pine boards smell so good!

I couldn't get to sleep last night so wanted to sleep in today. Very early this morning my phone rang waking me. Some guy said he'd just received a call from my number and he wanted to know why. I said I haven't a clue he just woke me up. lol He was very apologetic. lol I went back to sleep and slept in too long.
I had a busy morning of catch up of things when I woke then hubby and I did a full afternoon of errands and food shopping to get things done and not go out so much because virus cases are on the rise in my state. Yesterday when on one errand we saw lots of people in store without masks. Today the governor here signed into law a must for masks in all stores and a must whenever outside. Some restaurants etc are closing again to try to stop the spread again. News isn't good in a lot of states recently.

Late this evening after I watered all plant garden, planters and veg garden (it takes a while) hubby wanted to sit on lower porch and upper deck watching for deer to visit. They did. Awesome to watch. I've named a few .. the snorter lol, velvet (because of velvet on his growing antlers, and dragon (looks fierce). We came inside about 10:30pm. There's been foxes in the yard too and neighbors have reported seeing a coyote. I'm not happy about that. When I take bird seed out in the evening to feeders and ground feeder rabbits eat from I take cut up carrots too. There's one rabbit I call Mom Rabbit (same as last season too) that walks up to me and walks with me (so cool) as I fill feeders and put out carrots under a tree she likes. I tell her and her baby rabbits in the yard to be cautious of the foxes etc.   

Well that's my story for today. lol Sorry it's long but when I get started .......  ;)

Your work week is done and you have tomorrow off. Yay! Your tomorrow morning's walk doesn't have to be rushed to clock in at work. Thumbs up!

If my anxiety can be any higher I'm in trouble got my lease and of course raised the rent.  SO I am now looking for a new plce to leave I need to be out by sept 1 I think.  The lease is all post dated so not sure what the hell is going on.  The rent is like my 1 paycheck.  I hate NJ!!!!! too expensive to live here.  I am going to see an apartment today a lot cheaper so thats a plus. There was another place I liked but its a longer commute and a little more money plus smaller.  wish mee luck going to go through closets to get rids of stuff I do not need

Good morning LB, Oh!! Darn. What a mess with your lease! I agree of course the rent was raised .. never lowers or stays the same. For the rent to equal one paycheck is outrageous. It must have gone up a lot since you first moved there. I don't understand the post dating on lease either??

I remember you saying before you could pay monthly once lease was up until you found a place but now not with that higher monthly payment. Oh! unless that higher rate begins sooner with the post dating! But how would that be legal? You already signed your previous lease up to a certain date. Sorry. I don't mean to add to the confusion just trying to understand. Geez yes stressful for you.

If Sept 1 is the date at least you have July and August to find a new place (if the higher rent hasn't begun). You've already been looking and being proactive to find a new place and great you have some places to look at that you described. I understand your dilemma and stress choosing between size and commute plus parking for you is important and going to walks with Copper.

Yes absolutely I wish you the best of luck! I did just say a prayer for you finding the perfect place. I'm sure you will weigh all the options and make a good decision.
Good luck LB and God bless you. Please keep me updated. ((LB))

Good Morning well yesterday is a bust. Turned out they were closed.    But good thing I went.  I say the area and no way I would live there. I definitly would not feel safe.   I am calling the place to see if I can rent for 6 months and if they will not raise rent. Our governor said not to during this time.   I have a list of 4 more apartments to call or I already left message  . I think i have an appt tomorrow but I thought on phone but than I got confirmation as though I am going there tomorrow. I am forgetting what I looked at and what I am interested in so making  a no list and possible list. LOL I started getting rid of stuff.   preparing myself fr when I move .

Hi LB, It's good you got to see the area yesterday. Cross off that one for sure!

Excellent idea to call asking about renting 6 months and no raise in rent!! Considering what your governor said you should have some ground to stand on to back you up. Hmmm I wonder if that back dating has anything to do trying to raise the rent?? If so, not right.
Good idea to making list of places to keep it all straight. I can see how it could be confusing. Bottom line is you WILL find one you like eventually.
I really hope you can stay where you are for a while yet. Let me know how your phone call goes.

Happy 4th of July to you too. It just doesn't seem like a holiday. No family get-together here ... again. But this will all be over with eventually.

Whew! Another hot one here like a LOT of other states. Current heat index is 98 and dew point 67 ... I'm surprised it not 70 or above. Heat wave here in 90s to continue to this Sunday so far. Heat index to go to three figures this week.

I was outside earlier today for first round watering of things front and back of house .. then fresh water in all of the bird baths and fill birdseed feeders again. Geesh they're emptying more often recently.  I was soaked when I came inside and not from water!  ::)
After that hung a large load of laundry outside. It's probably dry by now for sure.

Some neighborhood people are still setting off fireworks here .. last night until after 11:30pm. And that's all against my county rules and noise ordinance.  Other neighbor's are complaining too. Hoping tonight is quiet.

LB, How's Copper doing on his walks. Probably much shorter ones in this heat. Any news about extending lease for a bit? Hope so and it's good. Fingers crossed.

baz, Mom rabbit is still hanging around but I haven't seen the two young ones for days. I told her to bring them around so I know they're okay. Hubby said he saw them in neighbor's yard but not sure when. Hmmm

I hope everyone is dealing well with the ongoing heat. Stay inside as much as possible and stay cool and safe of course with ongoing virus numbers.

Later ..

Not sure how you handle the heat Pauie!!!  Copper likes his walks but if they are long you can tell he is suffering  but he seems to want to go I have to be careful  and not go long with him even though he wants.     
no luck with apartments  no luck speaking with management either they wont budge. I was having panick attacks all weekend I calmed down a bit at work .   I still have an apartment I am interesting in but it's a longer comute only about 10 extra miles each way but its tough more stop and go traffic.  But I will be saving close to $300 a month

Not sure how you handle the heat Pauie!!!  Copper likes his walks but if they are long you can tell he is suffering  but he seems to want to go I have to be careful  and not go long with him even though he wants.     
no luck with apartments  no luck speaking with management either they wont budge. I was having panick attacks all weekend I calmed down a bit at work .   I still have an apartment I am interesting in but it's a longer comute only about 10 extra miles each way but its tough more stop and go traffic.  But I will be saving close to $300 a month
Hi LB, Me either. I just do what I've got to do, get done then inside.  :) Copper is lucky to have you look out for him on walks. I'm so sorry LB about your panic attacks this past weekend. I'm glad being at work and distracted helped calm down.
Wow to management not budging! I'm glad you're getting away from that place. I remember you mentioning the other day you liked an apartment but has a longer commute. Is that the smaller apartment? I recall there were two. Maybe a smaller one and one with longer commute. I know stop and go traffic is a pain but saving close to $300 a month is nice. If you really like it it's good you're considering it and if it's in a safe area too. Only you can make that decision but you have a sounding board here if you need one. When is your lease up? I forget.

#1 looks relaxing. I'll go with #2. Thanks for posting LB. Some of them do make me think and sometimes I print them.  :)

Hi to all ... and ...

Holy wind bursts! Lasting evening there was a heavy downpour here but just before it hit there was some wind .. not much wind .. then Slam! a wind burst. Hubby and I were looking at the tops of the very tall trees in the far end of our backyard swaying slightly when suddenly we heard a loud crack and one of them hubby estimates to be at least 50 feet tall came down, entire trunk and all, hitting our neighbor's rear deck, lower porch and 2 additional not as large trees. It sounded terrible! And it happened so fast. I walked to the end of my yard to check on her. She was standing in her backyard by then and she was in shock. She was okay but totally stunned. Thank God's heavens she's okay. That tree is enormous. There's a minimum of 9 or 10 more trees lined in a row just as tall as the one that came down. They were planted many many years ago before most homes in my development were built. No one has begun cleanup there yet. One just doesn't know what's going to happen one day to the next.

Take care and stay safe.

So sorry Paulie.  I hope everyone is ok

I am looking at apartment Saturday. It will be a little further commute 10 extra miles each way but I would be saying $254 a month on rent.  It's a little smaller but in a nice area.

Hi LB, I hope Copper was/is feeling okay?? You must be tired.

Hi baz. Thank you.

Today was a long day and hot. I didn't water things yesterday because it was cooler and cloudy plus I was tired. So today I watered. Was sunny and hot. Sky was blue with puffy white clouds. As I finished everything the sky got a tiny bit gray then suddenly was pouring rain. I ran around putting down umbrellas and stuff away so this time when I came inside I wasn't wet from the heat it was rain. lol Murphy's Law.

Hey I love white puffy clouds.    Going to see an apartment on Saturday. Itg's a little smaller but in a nice location.  Commute is a little longer it's all back roads.  I'm just worried about storage space .Not much not sure about a linen closet cause I think the washer and dryer is in there unless there is room next to it and they dont show it in video

Hi LB, We agree about white puffy clouds .. although me not when they turn gray real fast and pour rain. lol I remember you mentioning seeing apartment on Saturday but didn't know it's all back roads. That's good so no stop and go highway traffic. Will the back roads be good during the winter? Just me thinking ahead. It's sounds promising. Hoping there's linen storage that's not shown in video. It being in a nice location is definitely an A+. Fingers are crossed and hoping all goes good Saturday.

I will keep you posted.  It has it's faults. No Microwave.  Its about 100sq ft smaller but I am not sure how that is  and less closet space.  I hope it's not so bad as I thought. But the neighborhood seems really nice. Praying it's good enough to leave. Will Keep you posted

Good Morning LB, Ok and I'll be looking for your update. Can you buy a microwave to sit on your kitchen counter top? I hope there would be room for one. I'm glad you finally get to look at this place today so you have a better idea of what you're doing going forward. Fingers crossed and I've said a prayer for you.

No good... No closet space at all the closet space in bedroom is nice but they moved the hot water heater becaue of washer and dryer which is where the linen clost used o be.  No place to put dry and can goods.  The comute would be an hour and in bad weather impossible. it floods in areas I would drive through.  I am not sure what to do .I am seeing a  place next week but I odnt think its going t owork th erent is not so much less. so paying for a move not sure how it would be worth it.

Good morning :)

LB....Good luck with your apartment hunting.  I hope you find something terrific!!

Funny thing....this morning, the hummingbird feeder was taken down for approx. 2 hours due to some repairs on the house.  My little hummingbird (aka fairy) came by and realized it wasn't there.  He came by twice and then actually hovered by my windowed back door near the feeder 2x!!!!  It was like he was telling me, "hey, where's my food?"  So sweet.  He did the same thing last year when he came early and I wasn't prepared LOL.  He hovered by the window to let me know he returned

Anyway, as soon as we put it back up, he was there. 

Love my fairies :) :)

Have a good day everyone.  Be well.

Jacaji Can you tell the difference between your fairy hummingbirds????  I have a whole bunch of blue jays around and sparrows I cannot tell the difference.   I got notice on the one apartment I want they have availability but mostly 2 bed rooms and the 1 bedroom is 2nd floor.  No good for someone who as bad knees and a dog.  I spoke to the woman at my apartment ans she is going to put a call in to a couple of people but it doesn't look good.

Will try working positively with #2 for a while LB - Not easy sometimes.

I won't be able to make my trip to Decorah this season.  Med issues started last month that don't want to clear up.  Have to be wise, have to be practical, have to take my own advice to ENJOY.  We/I have enjoyed this season; it has been a great season.  Easy year with the flies, no emergency landings, great job by Mom and DM2, little ones seem to have studied hard and are almost at the start line.  It's great to have the transmitters to count on.  Thanks Brett and others who helped with that.  I hope the intermission from August to November/December flies by quickly like the eagles.

I'll probably keep to my routine of not posting often, very little venting, and mostly lurking.  But this is my go-to site.  I'll also switch over more to the flyaway and bears fishing at Kaitmai Brooks Falls brown bears.

Praying for all my friends and feathered friends.  Waiting impatiently for next  season. . . .Later  Enjoy!

Hi LB, I hope it's not sooner than Sept 30. That definitely gives you more time. I still don't understand how they can backdate leases to increase rental rate before the Oct date. I do remember you called office before about it but no luck. Good about the woman at your apartment place calling a couple people. I hope you get some good news.

Gee I got knocked off RRP site earlier and couldn't get back in. Maybe it was down or the issue was at my end. Anyway ...
I'll try to be brief why I've been MIA this week. Sunday evening one of my son's was admitted to cardiac ICU. He was discharged yesterday early evening after 5 nights. Diagnosis congestive heart failure and pneumonia. He's 44. The need for a defibrillator is possible or defib vest initially. Not determined yet. He's on ten meds some being antibiotics others for heart. No blockages. My son has RA so it was thought that his swollen ankles etc earlier last week were an RA flare until his breathing got scary labored. Wasn't RA but fluid build up and in lungs. All Covid tests negative. His father/my husband has congestive heart failure and implanted defib/pacemaker (ICD). In any event, Thank God many numerous ongoing continuous prayers were and are being answered and I pray they will be going forward.

Hi and Dear Tig, baz, LB and jicaji Thank you very much.  :-*

Tig, How's Camper doing?

LB, Same here with hot days. Right now the heat index is 105. Any apartment news this weekend? Did that lady make calls and get back to you yet? #3 quote for today.

jicaji, How's your husband's back pinched nerve?

Update: My son's numbers have improved some but they're not where they should be yet. It's scary. We wish he had the vest in the meantime. Time will tell. My husband and I got him a Pulse/Heart Rate Oximeter and BP cuff to monitor himself. Oh! And I had him choose a FitBit online so I ordered that and it arrived this morning and took it to him already. We got a lot of healthy foods for him and his family too since he's not permitted to drive. All the meds he's taking has his stomach messed up but as long as the meds help strengthen his heart and heal the pneumonia that's good. "One Day at a Time."

Yesterday had an upswing for me because I got to visit my 5yr old granddaughter.  ;D I hadn't seen her since February! Oh my she and I were excited and happy! I sat with her while she was in pool and we fished with one of the presents I gave her for graduating into Kindergarten this upcoming school year (that will be soooo not normal for all children. God bless them.) And we ran around her backyard playing. I honestly haven't laughed that hard in months. It was much needed for us both. Happy Happy day.

Thank you again for sending your prayers, healing thoughts, hugs and well wishes for my son. Prayers are powerful.

Take care each of you. Stay safe and stay cool for sure!

Hi LB, I hope you've gotten some better sleep this weekend. Excellent about getting vitamin levels checked. Your chocolate covered banana and diet cheese cake sound awesome! So does the protein shake. I'm going to check out the video.

#3 So much info going on and keeping up with with different family members with health issues plus grands back to school rules or change in rules or no school or partial week school and just life in general.

Yes all the rules for schools is so overwhelming the poor teachers!! They are so afraid to go back!!!!  My cousins wife is afraid she may take a leave. but she does have 2 young kids too who may be doing school remotely.

Good morning everyone,

Hi LB, Agreed to overwhelming and frustrating to both teachers and parents. Your cousin's wife being afraid and maybe taking a leave makes perfect sense. Her two young children are lucky to have a mom who's a teacher. 

One of my daughters asked me if her school district decides on breaking up the week to some days going in-class and alternate days at home if I'll teach my youngest granddaughter who's entering 1st grade because my daughter has a full time job. Oh geez. I said yes. Honestly she is smart and already reading some and doing math so maybe would be easier. Just so the district doesn't throw in the new way of calculating math. When my other grands were in lower elementary grades I was lost!! When I was helping one of them with a division problem I said I'd explain by doing it the way I was taught. While I was and was explaining carrying a number over she said "no that number goes up top into the turtle." I'm like, "What turtle??!" Oh yeah. I was clueless. And the children can't just provide the answer they have to show how they came up with the answer.

I'm waving to all and wishing you each a good day. I'm off to run an errand for my son.

Take care and stay safe ... and cool!! Geesh it's still HOT.

I will do cardio in  the air conditioner.  The way they teach anything in school these days I am lost!!!!   I broke down my apt complex!!! They agreed increase wont take affect to Oct 1.  Not perfect but it gives me 2 extra months of lower rent  Now I need t go on a strict budget

Temps here finally in the 80s ... even if high 80s sure beats mid to high 90s. My area set all time record for hottest July ... only 4 days in 80s in July all the rest 90s.

Heading out to weed vegetable gardens that are waaaaaay over grown. It was just too darned hot to work in them even in the evenings with high temps and dew points. It was cloudy but now the sun is shining. Hmmmm will see how long I stay outside weeding. lol

paulie, we will find out.  I haven't looked today yet at their status.  Last I heard yesterday is that they would make a decision on the splashdown location sometime today - don't know if that has happened yet.
Hi baz, You probably already know this but undocking went well. I stopped watching after SpaceX had passed through a number of safety procedures and the cabin was pressurized so they were able to take off suits then were going to sleep eventually. Splash down last I heard is still Gulf of Mexico but tomorrow will tell. It's all so interesting!
I was watering the veg gardens while watching .. phone in one hand and hose sprayer in the other. lol My area was supposed to get rain at two different times today but nothing so I decided to water because soil was so dry. Well of course tonight it rained and had a few good downpours too. Murphy's Law. Gets me every time.

Good news LB on your blood work. Thumbs up. Please give update on Copper's checkup. I hope he does good without you being able to go in with him. I hope this week is your work from home week with the storm hitting there tomorrow. You stay safe. My area is to get heavy rains. Flood warning out already. It's sooo dry here. Enjoy your day today.

Title: Re: Cheers 2020
Post by: LBLNJ0668 on August 08, 2020, 09:45:51 AM
I am asking for your opinions I just sent this to my apartment complex.   How does it sound


My name is Lori   I live in apartment x I have  been speaking to you on the phone  since the end of June when I noticed I got an increase in  my rent and I was being  charged a $250 monthly fee.  The $250 fee was removed and eventually the rent increase  was waived.   When I spoke to you and/or Emma In June I was told I was going to be getting my new lease shortly.   The original  lease runs from July 1 to June 30.   I usually get the lease renewal letter in April notifying me  of the renewal and the increase in rent that would into effect July 1 (A 2 month notice) Instead of getting the lease in April, I got a letter saying at this time I would not be getting my lease  due to corvid.  It states they are "allowing our residents the opportunity to extend their lease on a month to month basis at their current rate."  It also states "Your current lease will simply automatically renew month-to-month at the end of your lease terms. Once we get through this crisis together, we will be in touch regarding a future lease renewal offer."  On July 3, I got the new lease with the letter with all the original dates my  lease is up June 30 and I will need to vacate at that time and rent increase is  $1699 effective July 1,  (A $68 increase)   How can you give a lease back dated and takes effect immediately??  I am entitled to the same 2 month notice that  I would have received  if I was given the new lease back in April instead of the letter saying I would not get the renewal at this time due to covid. At the end f each conversation I had in the month of JUly I was told I would get the new lease with new dates and I still have not received it.

You also stated   things are starting to open up and that is why the lease is being given at the time.  What has opened up here at the park that  justifies the new lease with a rent increase (against the governors recommendation)  with no notification.  It is now August 8 and the gym and  pool are  still closed which my rent includes. It was increased a year or so ago $150 a year (when the new clubhouse opened)   to include the use of these facilities without extra charge which I cannot use and gyms are not opening any time soon.

All I am asking for is the same 2 month notice I would gotten back in April  about the rent increase.  Since I got the lease in July The dates in the  letter that came with lease should have been adjusted  that the rent increase would take effect October 1 since I am  now  on the month to month  basis as your letter stated along with no increase back in April. ALso, should I really have an increase at this time since my rent includes facilities that I can  not use at this time.  It is now August so the same 2 month notice should be extended to November  I am just looking for the new lease with the same 2 months notice along  accurate dates and I will sign.  I Hope this can be resolved ASAP.   

Sincerely

Oh!! I thought it was resolved. I just read your email to rental office. It sounds very good to me LB. Also, it's important and very good that you now have this in writing to them. You made some very valid points and you were thorough. Good luck and I hope you get the response you're hoping for. We need a fingers crossed emoji.

Perseverance can cause happiness (or angst) -- Finally got my tax refund which I sent Mar 23.  A few details:  Federal government closed down just after that.  I do my own taxes, had great accounting professor in college.  Not free; have to file business form so I just do it myself and save $$$ cost of extra forms.  Hand written forms were sent, then designated for safe keeping in a box in undisclosed warehouse???  That gave me and others like me last slot in handling.  Checked my account at bank last night -- HOORAY!!  Got it just in time to send part back for real estate taxes due Aug 31.

Two lucky signs:  House did not blow away Monday, and got my @#^& $$$$.  Wouldn't it be nice if they had included interest for using my money for 4-5 months!   (The nerve of ungrateful me.)

LOL, paulie!  I can relate to your computer woes.  ;) :D  My PC is ancient!  I pamper it to try to keep it limping along.  Forking out dollars for a replacement PC would be almost impossible for me to do right now, so I'm hoping I can keep it going enough to do the stuff I really need to do on it for a while longer.  The hardware and software are getting very close to the point where it will not work with current website functionality on many websites.  So far, I'm trying to just "make it work," as Tim Gunn would say on "Runway" - LOL!  I miss him!  Fingers crossed it will make it past the 2021 tax deadlines, and then maybe I will be able to replace it.  But, ugh.  ::) ;) :)

Happy Fri-Day, Cheerios!  :)
Oh geez baz, yes "make it work." I hope it holds out till next tax deadline. Tim Gunn = awesome fashion and always looks good. Why do you miss him?

But the good news is  she called in the morning and the person who answered was the cath dr.  He said he was doing much better he just thinks his lungs struggled after the surgery, His oxygen level was at 80%  and he was at 93% breathing level.  So much better. They were going to try and lower his sedation to see how he does. I haven't heard anything on that yet.   Please continue with the prayer.

Absolutely LB, Stepping up the prayers most definitely. Have already begun. That was quite a scare. Very good timing that you were awake when your friend posted. That was no accident. Awesome that you were awake for her.

Hi Paulie it's not looking good. It seems like when he moves 1 step forward he takes 2 steps back.  They took hi of sedation the othr day but he was non responsive and his breathing wasnt in sync with ventilator. So they turned it back up and hes sedated again I think. something a long that and since he want responsive the did a brai scan and turned out he had a small stroke.  Keep the prayers going please they are such a wonderful couple!!!

I know only a few people are here now but if I can reach out to one person I will be happy!

PLEASE BE SMART WEAR THOSE MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCE, IT CAN SAVE LIVES!!!!

I 100% agree with your message.

It's not looking good at all anymore. this is what she just told us. 

 It isn't looking promising at all...his reflexes are gone...there is thrombosis ( clots) throughout his organs .  The doctor wants to wait until the EEG comes back but he says it is time to start thinking about extubating and allowing the dying process to begin.  There will be pain medication and deep sedation so there would be no discomfort



They said cognitively he is gone

LB, I'm so very very sorry to read the sad update on your friend's husband. God bless him and rest his soul. Prayers continue for your friend and family during this extremely sad and devastating time for them.

This is VERY needless and senseless!  The language I'm saying to myself is not as polite.

I've said a prayer for you also, LB, due to your friendship with both.

Thank you for the update. Prayers continue for all.

Morning LB, Of course. Absolutely. Your friend and family should not have to be dealing with their 'new reality'. It should not be their 'new normal' ... not for them or anyone who has experienced this (expletive) virus!!

You went through this with your brother and thankfully prayers were answered for him.
You take a deep breath and take care now too. Your friendship for your friend and her family is appreciated I'm sure.

Prayers will continue for them as they go forward.

Good Morning LB, I hope you're having a good week at work so far .. although it's only Tuesday. How is your friend and family? Dumb question. They must be feeling devastated. Prayers continue for them.

jicaji, More hummers along with the regulars are showing up at some of my feeders now that migration has begun. Are you noticing the same? Sad that migration time has begun already but they should be around for another month or longer along with any late migrators.
You can see their bodies 'beefing up' as I call it before their journey begins.

Another hot day here with 3 digit heat index possible.

Wishing safety to all who were/are in the path of Maro and now with Laura approaching.

Good morning to everyone.

Hi LB, Will Copper walk in the rain and you use an umbrella? Unless is's a hard rain then that won't work. Send some rain my way. It's so dry the leaves are dropping from trees. My area missed a big storm today and we even had a tornado watch in my area. It rained some but not enough. It might rain here over night tonight so I hope it does. One thing is I haven't needed to mow! lol You've got a better work week to look forward to next week. Thumbs up!  :)

LBL, I haven't used any of those meal delivery products, but a former neighbor used to get Blue Apron deliveries pretty regularly.  I assume she liked them, too, because she got them often.

I've been watching a lot of tennis this past week, since the U.S. Open tennis tourney started a week ago.  It runs through this week.  A lot of top players didn't come this year, and there are no fans in the stands, all due to covid, but the tennis matches have been just as enjoyable to watch... well at least for this big tennis fan.  Tennis was "my" sport, till a knee injury (not related to tennis) forced me to stop playing.  So now I only watch it.  LOL.

G'night Cheerios.  Peace.  SED.
Hi baz, I think I recall your mentioning that you like tennis last year. Sorry about your knee injury especially since you enjoyed the sport so much. That just sucks honestly. I've heard about some of the matches on the sports news. It's really nice that the matches are still happening during the pandemic soooo you keep watching and enjoying.  :)

Another no family cook out get-together today.  :( So hubby and I were busy doing errands and got our flu shots. We were told the flu shots for 65 and over were running out so we figured just do it today and get it done. Done!

We spent another evening/night sitting on the porch watching the deer meander around the yard and eat. We've had 2 different fawns with their mammas show up this year. The second one was so tiny and cute!! We heard them coming from a distance because the little cutie was bleating away when its momma got too far ahead of it. It was fun watching one of the fawns pulling on and eating from the honeysuckle bush and a Rose of Sharon tree. Branches were bouncing all over the place. lol Buck Halo Sr watched over the fawn. It was really cool to watch. The taller does and bucks have eaten all the raspberries and continue nibbling on branches and they cleaned out all of the grapes from the grape arbor. We really enjoy watching them.

Halo the buck from last year is still coming here and there's a Halo Jr now too! They pretty much stay together coming here. Tonight it looks like Halo Sr has rubbed all the velvet off his antlers. Last Fall there was a six point buck in the yard but haven't seen him since. I hope he's okay and just moved on.

Well that's it for activity today. The deer will bed down somewhere then tomorrow morning we'll watch the Hummingbirds.

Haven't had a sleepover with any of the grands since last Feb. They're now asking if we can have them but all are attending school now and that just brings on more doubts for safety. Hopefully and with lots of prayers this pandemic will wear itself out for everyone everywhere and all families sooner rather than later.

Night all. Stay safe and healthy. SED (Sorry this is long. I was chatty Kathy tonight)  ;)

Good Morning  what a day yesterday. The apartment building across from me on the other side thought so about 200 yards away caught on fire. It was the 2nd floor apartment (it looks like)  The guy who lives there smokes  It may have started on balcony.  it was all charred there not sure though I feel so bad for the woman (elderly) on first floor she uses a electric scooter and there are signs no smoking oxygen in use / Her apt doesnt look like it burned down but definitely damage from putting out fire  When it was all down she was in the middle of parking lot with her dog(terrier) outside all alone. she was on phone making arrangements.  I started crying   I feel so bad for her Every time I think of that image I cry

Like baz commented maybe she can be given another unit if any are available. I sure hope so for her and her dogs sake.

Hi baz. Waving to you.

Miserable at my end. This morning my lower back 'went out'. Has happened before but not for a long time. No comfort sitting. No comfort standing. And can't hang upside down. Frustrated. This too shall pass. Could be worse for sure so dealing with it. Kinda funny story is .. Hubby has been trying to help but earlier today he said when he saw the expression on my face when he offered to help me with something he thought it best to back away and be quiet. I apologized   ;) and told him I'd laugh but hurts too much. This evening he wasn't feeling good so I was helping him. We balance each other so good combo. Well time to stand up again.

Take care. SED

Oh Paulie I hope you feel better very quickly!! Yes someone was coming to take her to a hotel .  A neighbor came to help her into the apartment to get some things that were salvageable. most of damage was upstairs but of course hers was in bad shape.  I keep thinking of that image of her in parking lot along and I cry. So in the morning someone said it started from a ciggerette than it changed to squirrel eating the wires than the final story is the ac unit. which I believe this place is 53 years old and the floors and windows are the original.  so god only knows how old the ac is.  I know from my experience they dont like fixing things it usually takes them three times to finally fix.  so my town is offering covid the antibody test and flue shots for free.  I am going to go for the antibody test and flu shot on Sunday   I am not going to wait for work.  They don't do theirs until November and who knows if I will be working from home or work that day

Hi LB, baz, jicaji, Tig , Thank you very much. I know we are each familiar with pain and this one for me this time has been a doozie. At one point it was getting better and then oh boy it was gone for a bit! But has returned but now not as bad so am doing what I can to get it better. I'm sooo over this. Pillows and heating pad have become close friends.  :)
 
I was going to come here this morning but had computer issues. Logged on and got message "Your computer was unable to start. Startup Repair is checking your system for problems." Then this scrolling bar began. I tried existing out but nope. It went on allll day and evening. Finally it said it couldn't help then restarted and all was fine. What the?! LOL Whatever!! It's gone and I could log on and all seems good. Fingers crossed it continues to be good.  ::)

Then also today my cell phone sounds for notifications would turn off. It happened the other day too. I didn't do it at least not intentionally if I did but I know I didn't go onto my phone to turn the sounds down. I finally saw missed calls and had texts.
My laptop and phone had me feeling like I was in the Twilight Zone today. Hoping for a better tomorrow. lol  ;D

Oh Paulie I hope you feel better very quickly!! Yes someone was coming to take her to a hotel .  A neighbor came to help her into the apartment to get some things that were salvageable. most of damage was upstairs but of course hers was in bad shape.  I keep thinking of that image of her in parking lot along and I cry. So in the morning someone said it started from a ciggerette than it changed to squirrel eating the wires than the final story is the ac unit. which I believe this place is 53 years old and the floors and windows are the original.  so god only knows how old the ac is.  I know from my experience they dont like fixing things it usually takes them three times to finally fix.  so my town is offering covid the antibody test and flue shots for free.  I am going to go for the antibody test and flu shot on Sunday   I am not going to wait for work.  They don't do theirs until November and who knows if I will be working from home or work that day
Geez Louise LB, Has a final cause for that fire been determined yet?

It's Sunday! Did you get the antibody test and flu shot? How long do you have to wait for the antibody results? Let us know! Very interesting. And good for you doing this!

Very true about you not knowing if you'll be working from home or work in November. It's good you did this today and I hope you did.

My two oldest granddaughter's school had a student test positive the first week of school but the student hadn't been into school yet because they're doing 2 days in-school and 3 days remote. Today school sent out a message a staff member has tested positive and all families associated with the class will be notified by the Dept of Health. My son and dil are waiting to see if they're notified. I'm thinking and hoping the affected class and families would have been notified before this message was sent out.

PA has had positive cases in the 300 and 400 range but this weekend jumped to 1,000. I'm wondering if Labor Day caused this. Haven't a clue.

I'm saying prayers for every state in the US and for everyone affected by the terrible fires out west. I've found myself not watching the news on TV because this all seems soooo overwhelming. God bless us all.

Okay. I'm off my soap box. And also have been sitting too long.  ;) so I'm  :-X  :) Love you each. Take care.

They definitly take too long to nofy the people that need to be notified they were around someone who has it.   One good way of it spreading.  I didn't get the antibody tet. While I was at walmart they offered to give me flu short so I did  it there instead and didnt feel like going. I was only going ot do antibody test out of curosity  Walmart also gave me the shingles shot.  I have to get a 2nd one in 2-6 months.  Than I should be immune to shingles well 91% chance.  My my arms are sore from the shots   I hope your son dont get letters!!

LB, Good that you got your flu shot and shingles shot too then the second one. One of my daughter's and I had discussed getting the antibody test too but decided Nah.
Hubby and I got our flu shots too.
More good news is no my son's family did not get notified. Whew!

LBL, glad you got those shots.  I need to get my flu shot soon - I usually get mine the last week of Sept or first week of Oct.

paulie, I hope your back is better.
Hi baz, Good about you getting flu shot soon. I usually wait till Oct too but was told the senior shots in my area were going fast in some places so we decided to just get them done about two weeks ago.
Thank you about my back. It's getting better slowly this time but getting there. A small pillow and heating pad are still my buddies. lol

Geesh temps got lower fast! Too fast and low for me at least in the morning. Brrrr Local weather man said today and tomorrow in my area in PA will have clear sky but hazy due to the smoke from California fires. That blows my mind that this smoke and haze has traveled so far from the west coast to the east. Honestly I'm shaking my head just imagining the fires and dense smoke for all cities, land, people, wildlife  ... everything and everyone affected.

Yesterday's #3

Good Morning my dear Cheers friends.  Sorry I haven't been here much but I did read something on Facebook just now and wanted to share it with you all.  Her son posted that our dear "Wings" has gone to be with her husband in heaven.  Here is his post:

"As many of you know, the past four months have been a really tough journey for Mom. Earlier today, God relieved her of her suffering and brought her home.  While I'm deeply saddened to see her go, I'm at ease knowing she's with my Dad among others who greatly love her.  Always the compassionate heart, my fondest memories of her will always be how much she gave to others - especially during my youth where she devoted countless hours to volunteering and bringing people together for a great cause.  We'll miss you Mom and always love you dearly. Thank you for the endless things you gave and boundless love you provided."

Her real name is Susie Regan Combest and Brent Combest made this post in case you'd like to read it and see some photos of her on Facebook.  Wings was a wonderful person and most certainly will be missed.  I am thinking of you all here.

Post by: paulie on September 21, 2020, 04:19:36 PM
Hi LB. I'm so sorry. I apologize. I have wanted to come here but things at my end kinda fell apart but are beginning to improve. I'll try to make this short but you know my 'short stories'  ;)
Last week (actually I just looked and it was 30 min after my last post here) my husband's ICD fired/shocked his heart. It hasn't happened for years but did last Thurs. As soon as he felt dizzy I had him sit down and seconds later it happened. It's nasty. It threw him back against the chair but I was on the side he leaned to afterwards so I was able to grab him to get up into chair. I drove him to his cardiologist. Device functioned as it should to correct fast heart beat and saved his life again Thank God. There was a 50/50 chance for another shock that night .. if so then ER .. but it didn't happen. Prayers answered. He can't drive for 3 to 4 weeks as a safety precaution. He always does errands etc for me especially with my back being 'out' so I've been doing that now. He's still tired and taking it easy but feeling good.

Then my laptop went caput acting more weird. I didn't even log on to use it for days afraid it would shut down and I'd loose files, docs etc then couldn't transfer to new one. Luckily a couple months ago I'd purchased a new one on sale. I don't know how to transfer all those things plus set up other things so my son was going to do that but then he had his health scare etc. and I just let it slide thinking no hurry to do it. Anyway just a day or two ago my son set it up and transferred files etc for me.

Now me and good 'ol lower back. I've been miserable especially last weekend. Pain now in hip and numbness/tingling down one leg so after 2 weeks of this and not going away plus difficult to even sleep I saw chiropractor this morning. Good thing I did. Xrays show arthritis in lower lumbar, both hips at different heights.. right side higher than left. Slight scoliosis pulling to the side of lower hip due to tilted hips and pain/pinching down leg is causing some sciatica.  Well darn! No wonder whatever I was trying to help didn't work!! Anyway good news is he said the hips and all can be corrected and I had my first spinal adjustment today. I'll return Wed then continue until muscles etc strengthen to hold good alignment again. I've been to chiropractors since childhood. My parents sent all us kids their routinely. I did the same with my children.

Anyway that's why I've been away and I'm reeeeealy glad to be back!  :)

I saw a commercial for meals to order and I thought about the ones you ordered. How is that working out? I remember you can get 4 means instead of two I think.

Today's #1 quote. It's a good one.

..... and I had to come back to modify to say, See! My short story still wasn't short. lol Something for me to work at.

Sorry for ll you troubles. I hope your husbands health improves as well as you back and hips.  Getting kinda stinks.
Glad you got your new computer set up. I heard of both but ignore them like you the edge and drive.  I think its a place to save your files. I just dont have the patience to learn about it  LOL

Thank you LB, Things could definitely be worse so glass is half full and will get fuller/better. Heck I'm sitting longer and at my pc again. Thumbs up! During spinal adjustment today I felt and heard a pop and Dr did too. Oh my it felt good! And most of the annoying throbbing pain is gone in one area already. Will take time but will get there.
Cool that you ignore Edge and OneDrive too. I'm going to continue to too. LOL

gm  yes I did try blue apron I wa quite impressed!!! Food was fresh meat was excellant.  Probably fresher than my grocery store!!! I am getting a delivery for sun basket in early October so now I will have 2 to compare. Tey are expensive though so cant do too often but than not o bad since out of the 3 meals I ordered it feeds 6.   
Copper is good.  Work is horrible  long story will save for another time but its time to look for another job. The apartment not sure what the cause is I heard ciggerrette, squirrel and the ac.  I think ac because they went around this past weekend cleaning everyones ac in that building

Hi LB, Wow Blue Apron sounds really good. Good idea to compare with another and great you get those additional meals too.
Good news about Mr. Copper.   :) Uh oh about work! And yes it does sound like the AC was the cause since they cleaned all of them in that building. And I hope they plan to clean all the AC units in all the buildings!

Hi baz, Thank you and awe thanks for the gentle hugs. I love hugs!   :) I hope all is good with you.

Well Autumn has officially begun as of this morning and geesh the past two mornings it's been 37 degrees here. Too cold too fast. Autumn does make you want to decorate with pumpkins and mums. And bake an apple pie!  ;)

jicaji, For when you get to read this. My cutie Hummers have moved on.  :( I did have one migrator passing through stop at one of the feeders though. I was hoping it would stay a day or two but haven't seen it since.

I forgot to post this morning.  Thanks for the input on finding out about the fire.  The weird thing. I did look up the fire to see if anything was in the on line news.  Nothing.   I may have to do some digging  Looks like there were damage to the apartments next door because some company who specializes in fire damage has been in those 2 apartments for the past 2 weeks Look like they are still living there though not sure though but one of their cars is still around.

Hi LB and baz.

LB, I hope you have a good week at work considering. Have you begun looking for a new job yet?

#1 today

Nothing new to talk about at my end other than weather here has gotten warmer and turned on the air conditioner today. Some of the flowers and planters are still in bloom especially in front of my house so I'm not setting mums or Autumn decorations around until the first frost turns flowers caput. I definitely don't like the days and daylight getting shorter but it is what it is.

Another chiropractor adjustment tomorrow. Going three times a week. It's beginning to feel better and last night actually slept through the night. Yay.

Doe and bucks still coming here. The fawns from this summer too and can see them growing nicely.
 
Yesterday hubby got shredded cabbage fermenting for sauerkraut in a 10 galleon crock. Our son-in-law shredded all of the cabbage for him because he and I couldn't do the shredding this year. He's canned more in past years but this year sized down a bit.
Hmm I guess I did have something new to talk about.  ;D

Take care. Be safe. SED

Hi LB, Makes sense about waiting to job search and definitely sounds good about a more exciting involved employment. Same here about getting rain tomorrow. I sure hope so! It's really dry here and have a rain deficit.

All three quotes today are really good ones. #1 very true. My favorite is #2 .. Oh yeah!  ;D

Just thought of a question I've been meaning to ask you. Are you still alternating work from home and going in?

Awe jicaji, Yep it's sad. I did have one hummer fairy stop while migrating through but only that one time then it moved on. Nothing since but I did put fresh nectar out yesterday in case any others pass by. I've downsized to just one nectar feeder now.  :(

Waving to All the Cheerios!  :)

LBL, that's a good idea to go ahead and update your resume - that way it will be ready to roll on a moment's notice if something unexpected pops up that you might like.  Good luck!

paulie, how long does it take till your homemade sauerkraut is ready to eat after you first start it?

jicaji,  you might still have a straggler hummingbird, so will you keep your feeder up a little longer, just in case?  I read this week that the males leave first, and the females and first year hummers leave later.  I hope they have a safe migration.  :-*

Have a safe and happy day, All!  :)
Hi baz, It's 2 to 3 weeks but usually 2 weeks. It's fermenting in crock now during that time. After that it's put into a big pot on stove to warm up, then stuff/can it into hot canning jars. You can eat it then but the longer it sits in jars the better the taste I think. If you lived closer I'd give you some!  :)

Oh my gosh! I think I finally got into forum! I've been trying for literally days!

LB, I emailed you explaining and to please tell others in Cheers but not sure if I used correct email address.

Sooo weird for days now trying to come here. I'd get "Hi Broken Lug" and wings flapping avatar! So I left immediately thinking I was trespassing private info. This happened many times. Then today I got "Hi jicaji". I clicked Home tab then got sign in screen but got kicked off every time I tried. I don't know how I got here now so I'm rushing hoping this will post.

Anyway been super busy since last Wednesday. My son from NC got tested for virus to be able to visit me and hubby. He didn't want to chance brining anything here. Very considerate of him. All was good. He arrived Wed and left Sun.

Okay. I'm going to click Post now and hoping this posts. Fingers are crossed.

Hi baz! I came back to see if I could log in. I had to try twice but second time worked. I've now read your post explaining everything. I really did think I was logging in as a different member and yep trespassing so that's why I would stop trying. Interesting. Thank you very much for explaining!!

I'm going to go back to when I was here last.

Hi jicaji, That was scary for sure. Still is until every person who is diagnosed is officially out of the woods with this terrible virus. Wouldn't wish this on anyone. This all has to go away! We all need normal again if we can get back to normal.

How are things with you, hubby, and family?

Hi baz, Yep I found Etta. lol I have to say I think that photo is relaxing. Pretty brick house with sun shining through leaves and Etta at window. It's just relaxing to look at. Very nice.

It took a few tries to get here again. I was Broken Lug again one of the tries. lol Thanks for info baz.

Busy day here. Chiro appt this morning again. Definitely beginning to feel better. Errands this afternoon and hair appt for wash/trim/styling this evening. Hubby still not allowed to drive per his cardiologist so I drive him to a few places too. That's it and I'm pooped. lol

Yesterday I bought 3 hugs mums for out front. 3/$19. Great price. And pumpkins to set around out front too. Waaaay too windy to set up today so plan to do tomorrow. Temp today 78. Felt good with the wind.

How's your great niece? Is she dressing up for Halloween?

Good Morning LB  :) No problem. Honest. Yes maybe in your spam or l used wrong email address.

Sorry about you feeling down maybe due to lack of people contact. That can do it for sure. To try to find a silver lining look at it this way .. no one is annoying you. I'm not making light of this. I understand and sending you a hug (((LB)))

Great that you have a dental cleaning this Saturday considering your tooth pain. That's so annoying and yes makes one worry. Could you maybe be clenching down your jaws/teeth from stress and worry about something? That causes tooth pain for sure. It happened to me in the past and recently to me and one of my daughters too. Sometimes you don't even realize you're doing it.
Let me know how your dental appointment goes.

I hope you have a better day today. Take care.

LBL, so sorry about your sensitive tooth... hoping it's nothing major... glad you already had a dental appointment.  Fingers crossed!  2020 is one strange year.  Hang in there!

paulie, my littlest greatniece is doing well.  I don't know if she will dress up for Halloween - she did last year.  Everything is different this year.  It's still 2020.   ::) :P

Here she is dressed in pink and ready for a walk, and fun at the playground, on a pretty Fall day:  :)
Good Morning baz, Very good news about your greatniece. She looks so cozy comfy warm and always smiling.  :) She sure looks relazed in second photo! Lol Good!! Please post a pic of her if she does dress up for Halloween. She's adorable.

I hear ya about still being 2020! Wild.

I'm wishing everyone a good day. Take care.

Hi Tig.
Hi LB.

I remember saying to myself TFIG. Now all the days just run together. I've got to get out of the funk I'm in. Blah.
LB, I think I've caught how you said you were feeling the other day.
Normally I'd be outside this time of year trimming bushes, cleaning up leaves and gardens etc but just can't get motivated and upbeat. Not like me. Geesh what's it going to be like when it's dark at 5pm? Yuck. I sound like Debbie Downer. lol Perk up Paulie ... perk up!

Take care and SED.

Hi  :)  I hope Cheerios and everyone are having a pleasant Saturday.

I decided it was time for an attitude adjustment and the funk had to exit so it did.   ;) ;D

This morning hubby and I went to the farm store and stocked up on things. Then since the forecast in my area is 1 to 2 inches rain tomorrow and Monday (VERY much needed rain) I decided to leaf blow the front and side yard. I wasn't sure, because of my back and hips, if I was going to pick up all the leaf piles or blow into the street for township leaf machine to scoop up next week but I did pick them up and "got 'er done!" Body is feeling pretty darned good too.  :)  I'm taking a little breather right now then I'm going to do some lawn mowing .. just the high areas that need it to neaten it up. Afterward do some laundry then I do believe an elftini is in order this evening.  :)

Take care all.

I've seen Scentsy products when checking out at a store. A guy and his wife had them on check out counter. Very nice and varied products and LOTS of different scents. Very cool LB that your company manufactures some of the scents. I recall you mentioning your company does for Clorox products too if I remember correctly. Good luck with the party.

Good afternoon everyone.  Waving at Paulie, LBL, baz, jicaji and all of you.  I am sorry that I need to tell you some sad news today. One of our longtime friends here in Cheers has passed away.  Mom Never aka Neverbeen78.  I tried calling her a time or two over the past several months but there wasn't an answer at home.  I then realized I had her daughter's phone number, Mandy, (hope I am spelling it correctly) so I reached out to her on Friday.  (It was our Willie that previously gave me her number).  We did connect yesterday and she advised me that our Mom Never passed away May 18, 2020.  Her illness was discovered rather suddenly and her passing was quick.  Mandy didn't know Mom Never's password here so with her permission I am posting this information.  Mandy does hope to create her own account here in the forum so hopefully we will see her sometime soon in Cheers.   Mom Never, thank you for blessing our lives with your presence here.  You will be missed.  glo

Thank you Glo.

Mom Never was a sweetheart. One of my many memories of her is her enjoying ND Football. We'd both comment and give cheers to the them. ND now has a cheerleader in Heaven.

She and dear Willie are probably chatting away with each other. Mom Never about "keeping the lead out" and Willi wearing a tye dye shirt.

Very sad news but glad knowing Mom Never is among all of her friends and loved ones in Heaven.

I look forward to meeting and seeing Mandy post in the future.

Agreed. Mom Never was a blessing and will be missed.

Love you Mom Never. XO

Hi LB, You got rain yesterday?? I wish you could have sent some of it to my house. Need rain here.  Sunny and warm here yesterday and today too and supposed to be tomorrow too. Have been in the high 70s. Geesh.

Hi jicaji and baz

baz, Glad you're enjoying nice weather. I like being able to open windows too. So nice with fresh air.

As I said above weather has been really decent here so I decided since Oct is winding down it's time to clear off deck and lower porch for this season putting all of the spring/summer things away.  :'( It's fun to set up for warm seasons and a bummer putting it away but it's time. I started today and will continue tomorrow.

Geesh to the upper states that got clobbered with snow!! I'm definitely not ready for that.

#2 from today.

Take care all.

I don't get trick-or-treaters where I live, but I have always bought some candy, just in case, as I would tell myself... LOL...  This year was the first year I ever successfully didn't buy any candy - none! - for "just in case" Halloween.  Yay!  I did it!!!   :D

Hi LB, Awe to Copper. And geesh every 1 to 2 hours the past 2 nights? Is he feeling okay? Wasn't he supposed to have a further blood test or something? You've got to be very tired. I hope both you both have a better night tonight. Please give an update tomorrow.

Hi jicaji, Good to 'see' you.

Beautiful awesome weather here this past week, this weekend and next week too. Woo Hoo! Got a lot of outside work done yesterday. Definitely sore today. Sometime don't know when to quit just wanting to get done.  ::) :) More outside to do but can take it slow with the current and upcoming pleasant weather.

Good Morning, definitely enjoying the beautiful weather this weekend.    I have been feeding squirrels peanuts and I got one to take a peanut out of my hand :)   The little things that make you happy.   He is always waiting for me when I get up in the morning. Not sure if I am repeating meme I found another folder of them not sure if its a copy it doesnt say so though

Hi!!  ;D

Geesh just after I had come to the forum I lost internet connectivity at my end. I'm crossing my fingers. I just did a quick read from when I was last here.

LB, Congrats on your 1 year anniversary!! You look great!! I'm really happy for you.  :) Also thank you for your concern about my absence.

jicaji, Thank you for sharing my message and Hi to everyone.

baz and Tig, Thank you too.

baz, Your two funny cartoons are funny . Thank you. Much needed right now.

Yes I've had computer problems and also family health issues with two of my children that has been keeping me busy and trying to keep up with routine things. Look at the time I'm posting this and that will give you an idea of being busy. lol What can I say other than be grateful for the good things and be positive pushing forward. Thumbs up to that.  ;)

I've got a super busy day tomorrow and up to including Thursday cooking and delivering Thanksgiving meal to my children and their family but I'll pop in for sure.

I hope everyone is doing good.

Take care and stay healthy and safe.

Hi jicaji, Thanks! I decided this I was going to get here this morning with my mug of coffee.  :) I'll be going food shopping in a bit for the last of the things I need for Thursday's meal. I already got most of it. I started shopping for things weeks ago so don't have as much to get at one time. The upcoming holiday is going to be a different one for sure for most of us.

Take care and you have a good day.

I'm all by myself this Thanks giving.  My father is making a Turkey and Vegetables and he will make me a plate for me to pick up.  I told him I will make mash potatoes and give him some. I bought a bag of potatoes mostly to make french fries and of course mash potatoes for turkey day so I will make more and give him.  My sister is making stuffing for her family and will bring me some maybe we will zoom are one point of the day I will miss thanksgiving it's my favorite holiday.  I don't want to risk it with my father.

I had to go to the store one more time for a couple of "fresh" veggies and a little bottle of apple cider.  I put a splash of it in my sausage stuffing.

I have been wanting cheesecake for months now, so now I am going to make one for thanksgiving!!!  Just me and Jim this year due to this gift from China that keeps on giving, so I'll bring some of it over to my daughter, along with the sides I'm bringing her.  She'll have the apple pie, pumpkin pie and choc pies as well I'm sure!

Waving to All the Cheerios!  :D

I had already done most of my Thanksgiving grocery shopping a couple of weeks ago, but I made a run to pick up a few more things last week, and got the last 2 items I needed today - things that I wanted to buy fresh closer to Thanksgiving Day.  So I am done.  And done!  LOL.  At least I hope! I'm hoping I won't need to go back to the grocery store for at least a week after Thanksgiving... my cabinets, and fridge and freezer are full.  I'm going to eat what I have for a bit.  Maybe I won't go grocery shopping again for at least 2 weeks!  That's when I will try to get what I need for Christmas eats, except for just-in-time fresh foods, like fresh veggies.  I'm trying to severely limit my outings to any establishments only for a true "must get for must need" reason.  I fully expect there will be a spike in illness after T'day, since I am seeing on the news that people are ignoring the CDC guidelines over the Thanksgiving holiday, and I don't want to be a sitting duck at any store to catch that from people who don't know they have it, but are shedding the virus to others all the same.  A bad situation that's getting worse every day.

Please stay safe, Cheerios.  And have a good day!  :)
baz, waving back.

Good that you have your holiday meal ingredients plus your fridge and freezer full. Same here because I agree with you 100% about severely limiting outings and people ignoring the guidelines over the holiday. I don't understand how some people take it so lightly about not following the guidelines. PA has begun limiting hours at some establishments again and schools possibly going all virtual. Last week there were reported new cases in PA of over 7,000 in one day and it's been maintaining at 6,000 to 4,000 daily. Very scary all through the US.

You stay safe too.

Hi LB!!!!  ;D Awesome excellent news about you today!!! Oh I am soooo happy for you!!! I'm sending you a big hug!  :)

It's very nice about what your father, you and your sister are doing for each other for Thanksgiving. I was going to ask you what your plans were.  I remember your mentioning your father's health a while back and have been wondering how he's doing. He's on my prayer list. How is your brother?

WOO HOO LBL!!!  CONGRATS!!!  :D  Way to show 'em!  Keep it up!  :)   You will be your surgeon's "poster kid" for their other sleeve patients.   ;)  That's a great idea for how to share special Thanksgiving dishes among your family even though you won't be sitting at the table together this year.  Everything sounds dee-lish!  I will be by myself, too.  Many people will.  It's okay - it's for a good reason, and hopefully, next year we can all celebrate double-time.  I think your family Zoom plan is a great idea.  I think the Zoom network is going to be on overload on Thanksgiving!  LOL.  I saw they lifted the shorter time restriction that had been in place for Zoom sessions, so that will help people "visit" over Zoom over the upcoming holidays.

jicaji, LOL, I have been jonesing for certain foods, too. LOL.  Glad you will get to scratch your cheesecake itch!  Mmmmm... it's going to be sooo good!  :)

paulie, it sounds like you're going to have a busy T'day of cooking and delivering food to your family.  I hope you will save enough energy to enjoy some of it yourself!   :)  Hope your computer is playing nicer tonight.  ;)

Long busy day making side dishes to refrigerate. I'm close to running out of room in the fridge. Finally got laundry done I've had sitting since Sunday. lol Had to go to store for more containers for individual family's meals. Hubby and I walked out of store with six bags of different size containers! While standing in the store isle I wrote on the labels what I want to put in each container. Took forever finding the correct different sizes and hubby very patient with me.  ::)  Time for bed.

I wish everyone a safe pleasant night. Zzzzzz  :)

Hi LB, Trust me I am exhausted! I have been sleeping better at night with my lower back and hips so I've been waking up rested for another day.  :)

Oh boy I am happy for you!! And I can feel your excitement! Your visit with your sister sounds great and especially since the weather is cooperating for a nice visit outside. Perfect!

Hi jicaji, Have you made your cheesecake yet?  :)

I'm taking a breather from chopping onions and celery making stuffing to sit down a bit. I'm making extra for a 24 pound turkey. Everyone always says I don't make enough stuffing. Geesh I always get big turkeys and stuff the heck out of the cavity and neck area too. I say enjoy it until it's gone.  ;D

I have only one or two more things to prepare then I think I'm done. Yay!

Wishing everyone a pleasant day.

paulie, if you're asking about my parrot, Zippo, then, yes, I will give her some things she likes that she doesn't get every day - like some chopped boiled egg, and fresh steamed green peas and corn, and a whole raw almond, in addition to her regular fresh fruit and veggie she has for breakfast everyday, and in addition to her regular dry food.  She will make a big mess, but she will enjoy it!  LOL!   :D  :-*   When my mother started getting older, but not really old, LOL, in her mid-60s, after the grandchildren weren't so very little anymore, my sisters and I convinced her to let us divvy up much of our Thanksgiving meal favorites to prepare and bring, so she wouldn't have to stand and work so long and hard in the kitchen.  It took a little to convince her at first, but then I think she realized how much better it was for us all to share the workload and then she could feel better and enjoy it more at mealtime, too.  She always made the turkey, since we went to her house to eat, and she also made the gravy because her gravy was the best ever.  I know your family can't all be together at mealtime this year for health reasons, but everyone who is able could share some of the prep, and trade out portions, like you are doing for them.  And maybe drive to your home to pick up things, instead of you driving to everyone's place to deliver.  Take care, and I hope you don't do so much you end up in bed or not being able to sleep because of your back and hips.  :)

LBL, enjoy your visit with your sister!  :)  I haven't seen my sister since the 2nd week of last March, so I understand.  Please stay safe as you enjoy a visit outside with proper distance.  Masks are now recommended even when outside with people not living in your household, in addition to keeping a safe distance.   :)

Waving to All the Cheerios!   :D

Cheerios, I'm going to be watching my favorite college basketball team play their first game of the season a little later today - YAY!!! - so I'm not sure when I will get back here to post.  So in case I don't catch up with you all here again before tomorrow...

HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!   :)
Hi baz, Oh! Yes Zippo!! Sorry about that. Rizzo is jicaji's dog.  Nice! Zippo is going to have a great special day.

It was very considerate of you and your sister helping your mother. I'm laughing at your saying 60 isn't really old. Lol It definitely isn't!
I understand your mother being resistant. I'm the same way. My two daughter's do make two side dishes and both desserts this year.  I make the majority of sides.  We've done the sides like this for many years and they'd bring the veggie and fruit trays too but we're not doing that part this year since we all can't get together. I enjoy doing it this way and they better watch out if they mention doing the entire meal some day. Lol

Since I posted the other day two of my children will be coming here for the meal to take with them and me and hubby will be driving meal to just my other daughter's house now. We're winging it this year with it being so different.  Thank you for your considerate suggestions. That's very thoughtful.  :)

You and Zippo enjoy your day.

Hi LB, It's great to hear about your visit with your sister and your niece and nephew too. Good!  I remember you saying it's been a while since you have seen them.

It is also very special that you saw your father. I remember you mentioning his girlfriend in the past. Whew! Take a deep breath. I am very sure you took precautions to protect him and your father totally enjoyed visiting with you. 

You did it again with all 3 of today's quotes. I'm actually chuckling as I'm writing this. All 3 quotes are good ones but #2 is the one that stands out for me. Oh yeah. I've got a doozy that has married into my family. Now I'm lol.

I'm saying Hi to Cheers empty stools and grinning. I'm thinking today was an R&R day for each of us after yesterday. It definitely was for me. I didn't do squat today.  :)

That being said. I did enjoy either some family members coming here to get the meal with precautions and me and hubby taking it to one of my children and family but at the end of the day I was sad because this holiday was so very different. It took a sadness toll on me. I'm very sure it did to all families that didn't/couldn't get together. We all did this to be cautious and protect each other and that's imperative. I'm just saying it was sad BUT important and we all must be grateful for all of the good in our and our families and friends lives. So, we did good!

Wishing you each a peaceful night. SED

Good Morning LB, I am SO glad I came here early today and read your post. Don't you dare let that nasty neighbor bring your spirits down and make you sad!! After I read her comment to you and her description the very first thought/word that came to my mind is "Jealousy". Definitely! She is jealous of you and your awesome accomplishment!

Sure surgery was your first step BUT if you had not followed and adhered to following the guidelines .. the meal plans, exercises, etc ...
you would have have seen or still be seeing your excellent weight loss and accomplishments thus far. That has taken strength and determination by you and you have and are doing it.

I worked with a lady who also had the same surgery you did. Initially she did good but she later did not follow the guidelines and she gained all of her weight back. YOU have not!! I am VERY sure it was not always easy and a walk in the park for you. You had discipline and determination and YOU are winning.

You are the winner here and this might not be nice of me to say but that neighbor is the loser. It's true!

I admit I did grin to myself when I read you gave her the finger. Oh my now I'm laughing. Honestly good for you! I get it.  ;) Geesh you have been under a lot of stress lately with work, holiday, family (good times & worry about your father) so when that lady (I use the term lightly .. she has me p----- off) said that to you .. well it just tipped your scales. Understandably too!

Ok now I'm beginning to write a book here so I'll finish by saying. Dear LB, You take a good look at yourself in the mirror ... Give yourself a wink and a thumbs up ... Shake off what that neighbor said to you ... then leave her and her words behind you. She needs to work on herself.  Be proud of yourself, LB. I sure am proud of you.  ;) :-*

LB, that was really so nasty and so rude. 

Not that it's in the same league of rudeness....but it reminded me of when I got my haircut years ago and this dopey person I worked with said, "Ohhhh, you cut your hair, WHY???? it WAS so nice!!!!  Since I was at work, I couldn't flip her the bird, but wanted to for sure.  Then once in the summer years and years ago, I was outside and one of my neighbors, who I hardly knew, came over and actually said to me, wow, you look like you've gained some weight!!!!!

I think we've all probably come into contact with stupid, rude people.  Don't let it get you down!!!

Good Morning jicaji, Oh my gosh!!! What's with the rude people you encountered??! I'm LOL again reading about you couldn't flip the bird to your co-worker. I love it. You and LB have validated my having wanted to do the same thing to whomever in the past and the not so distant past either! LOL

jicaji, I'm sure you were appalled at their comments and I'm also very sure you rose above them. Once again they were the losers.

It's interesting how we all remember things like this that we've encountered but I will say this. It made each of us stronger people. And we're all nicer people too.  :) :P

I want to blast the song in front of her door Baz!!!!  Thanks the words are soooooo perfect!!!  Thanks!!!I am proud of myself and I know I still have a ways to go but I'll get there.  Paulie.  I have heard so many people gain their wait back and I am trying so hard not to!!! I l LOVE food!!!  I'm grateful for this surgery cause when I eat too much or eat too much carbs my stomach feels blah and swollen so I says it's telling me to stop so I do!!  I hope it continues to do that because like I said I LOVE food. LOL Yes I am following the rules.  I am following the guidance form my surgeons and nutritionists.  The nasty neighbor did text me the next day and we were going back and fourth to each other I basically said She needs to look in the mirror and I never really cared for her  from the moment I met her. That she has been nasty to me since than.  I told her there is a right way and a wrong way to approach someone and she chooses the wrong way.  I saw her today and didnt acknowledge her.  Thanks again everyone!!!! Love you guys!!!

Title: Re: Cheers 2020
Post by: paulie on December 01, 2020, 10:52:38 AM
Good Morning.  :) Sorry this will probably be a bit long.

Well my being MIA a couple days was unexpected. Saturday afternoon I ended up at ER then admitted overnight for observation. Went home Sunday evening. Yesterday I just rested and shook my head asking myself what the heck happened! What a pain in the butt! I'm usually the one driving and helping others.

I've always had normal BP. Saturday I wasn't feeling good with routine off/on nasal congestion etc but BP eventually went way too high 200/over something. I sooooo did not want my hubby or me in an ER with the current virus surge but had no choice. I had EKG, close BP monitoring, CT scan of brain, chest x-rays, intermittent stroke tests/questions, bloodwork. Discharge diagnosis sinusitis and hypertension. All test results were normal .. clear .. and good. Whew! Yay!

I was trying to figure out where hypertension came from but I had been taking Sudafed which ER said raises BP but I've taken Sudafed for many years. And the nurses and doctor did ask off and on if I had anxiety, stress or sadness this past holiday over the current virus crisis and distancing from family. Definitely yes! The ER said they're seeing a lot of people coming in with the same symptoms and ironically yesterday my local news reported a recent report of  "increased anxiety & stress due to virus and holidays leading to increased high BP, strokes and heart attacks nationwide." How scary and sad is that!!

Bottom line for me I'm taking an antibiotic, nasal spray, and low dose BP med and I'm to follow-up with my PCP. I'm to take my BP 1X daily. It's still not down to what I've always been normal but am hoping and praying it will be. This BP thing is really bothering me. I want it normal again.  ;)

Some caring advise my Cheers friends and anyone who reads this .. don't push yourself, take deep breaths, slow down when needed, talk with someone if it helps you and tell yourself this pandemic and distance from families will end eventually.

Also, growing older and being called a 'senior' sucks.  ;D Lol You know me. I'm the one full of energy, mowing the lawn, shoveling snow, planting gardens, household chores etc etc. But! this can happen to younger people too so take care of yourselves each of you whatever your age.

In the meantime, stay safe, a sense of humor helps lighten the load and take care.  :) :-*

I contacted the folks where I got my shot in my knee last month and found out the exact drug and reported what it was to my primary for my records. I was very sick for 20 hours.
Now I'm looking at getting a home desk bike since I can't access the pool at the Y (due to Covid). And soon walking will be out due to snow.

Hi everyone  :) I just saw your posts. I'm going to read each one individually then reply. I took my 1X a day BP tonight and I was pleased. Whew. Not as low as I'd like but better than it was.   

Update: Geesh my computer is acting weird. I'm going to try posting again. Fingers crossed.

Waving to All the Cheerios!  :)

((paulie)), whew is right!  I'm sooo glad you saw the doctors, and are monitoring, and that your tests were normal.  You definitely need to watch the BP, and definitely contact your PCP today, if you haven't already.  Your PCP may want you to report your BP and adjust your medication, up or down.  How did you know your BP was elevated to that level before you went to the ER?  Do you normally check your normal BP at home?  Yes, many cold & allergy meds raise BP, so I'm glad you got attention when you did.  So many people ignore it and say, "It will get better," and then end up with a stroke or worse.  I hope your sinusitis goes away soon, too!  Take it easy, and let others do for you for a change, and I hope you will be back to your "normal normal" very soon!  :)

Hi to jicaji!  :D

LBL, did you get snow?  Glad you can work from home this week, especially if you got snow!

Take care, and have a good day, Cheerios!  :)
Hi baz, Thank you. Yes I'm watching BP and calling my PCP tomorrow per the ER Dr instructions .. and you too. lol Thank you.
The ER Dr and nurses said the same thing about primary care maybe wanting to adjust the med up or down. I'll be showing him the list I've been writing down of BP readings.

No I haven't needed to check my BP in the past but I felt so terrible on Saturday that I knew something wasn't right so I asked my husband to take my BP. He has congestive heart failure and diabetes so he has all the equipment here at home. That's how I knew the numbers were high. My systolic number at home was 176 and BPM 103 so I called my PCP office and was told to go to ER immediately. It's when I was in the ER and they took my BP they said it was 200. Ironic thing is when I was in the ER and they were taking my BP and EKG I felt safe and very relaxed and couldn't tell my BP was so high. Suprised me!! Scary right! I honestly wouldn't have known.
I will follow your advise for sure.  Thanks baz.

Hi jicaji, Thank you about test results. I agree with you about an awful weekend!! Geesh! I'm glad that's behind me. You are exactly correct about a person being stressed by high BP and make it go higher. You're trying to think calm relaxing thoughts while wondering/stressing at the same time about the high number and wondering if it's coming down. It's definitely a balancing act.

I love your suggestion to rest and watch Hallmark channel!! Thumbs up for sure.

Hi Tig, Oh my gosh! I don't mind and they don't matter. Lol I'll try.

What's this about you being very sick for 20 hours after a knee shot?! Holy Tig! What is the name of the drug/med? That's terrible!
It's sad you can't have access to the Y pool. Good thinking and planning on your part for a desk bike. I haven't heard of them before.
Good luck and I'm glad you're feeling better. When was that?

Oh my gosh LB. You've been working from home for 3 weeks straight?! I didn't know that! I missed that if you posted it before. Your commenting that you see anxiety setting in on other people and it happens to you  .. add to that my experience .. tells you what you need to do. Take a step back .. then take a deep breath .. slow down. Work, things, whatever will get done eventually. Hugs to you LB.

Yes I will take care of myself and thank you for saying I'm needed here. I do enjoy my stool and my friends here.  :)  ;)

Hi jicaji, Agreed and there's two maybe three other bucks that frequent the yard. They're each halo bucks but you can tell the difference in their halo antlers. Since rut began their normal patterns were disturbed. That's when Mr. Handsome arrived. There's pics of him eating with some doe and fawns too. I'm hoping he didn't take over my Halo Sr's spot with this herd. Yep I have names for them.  ;D

It's very cool you saw a buck and still see does and their fawns. So pretty and precious. I didn't know they eat Hostas. Mine are in the front yard. They did eat all of my August Lillies this past spring and summer. lol

Yes I am feeling a bit more like myself today. PCP appt is Friday. Fingers crossed. I'm determined to not have to take a BP med. We'll see.  :)

Hi  :)  Just finished watching end of regular season ND football. Won!! An undefeated season and now onto ACC.  ;D  My sons and I group message each other during all the games. They have me laughing so hard sometimes. We have fun. Woo hoo to ND!

I had my follow-up with PCP yesterday. All's good.   :) We spoke and I explained circumstances leading up to my experience. He said he's seeing a lot of other patients with similar stress and anxiety and I got myself run down. The nasty sinus infection contributed too plus taking Sudafed (that can raise BP) for lots of days.. He was so happy while he took my pulse .. all smiles saying perfect normal pulse .. then my BP was right on the mark! I don't know who was more happy, me or him. lol He's really nice. I'm to finish my antibiotic, use nasal sprays and Coricidin as needed and continue what he called miniscule dose BP med for the time being. Will do. Whew!

I'm going to read posts now I missed the past day or so.

I'm still wide awake from taking it easy all week.  ::) Tomorrow I'll be busier because I've let laundry sit since last weekend and it's a bit overflowing. lol I'll git 'er done plus a few other things around here tomorrow.

Yesterday my daughter who is momma to my youngest granddaughter 5 yrs old stopped by for an 'outside' visit. My daughter was worried about coming into the house because cutie Gracie is still able to attend her afternoon kindergarten (morning class closed due to virus) so she's around other children and a family has reported getting virus and quarantine so she didn't want to come inside the house. Our visit was soooo nice. Grace couldn't contain herself with distancing and ran up to me wrapping her arms around my waist. I melted on the spot and hugged her back. Oh my it was great seeing both her and my daughter. We each, hubby included, talked at a distance and they gave us a surprise pre-Christmas present. When they were walking back to their car to leave Grace turned around and ran back to me for another hug. Oh God bless her. I hugged her very tight and told her this nasty virus will go away eventually then we can have a long weekend sleepover. My heart was smiling.  :)

I wish everyone a pleasant night's rest. Stay safe. SED

Paulie aww your grand daughter couldn't contain herself!!!!

We have 2 cases in covid that we were made aware of but they were out on the production floor. We dont go in that building but I heard the office is getting pretty lax   So I'll just wear my mask all the time

Good Morning jicaji, Awe thank you. You know what? After they left and I was thinking about our visit I did think about you and your precious Violet and how much you miss her and want to see her.

It will happen for you when all this mess is done and oh boy you will be the happiest grandmother ever!!  ;)

Very cool that we both have Gracie's in our family.  :) It's a small world sometimes.

Good Morning LB, Oh my goodness I agree with you about Gracie. Trust me I was close to tears.

You be very very careful when in the office tomorrow! True it's good for you to get out of the house. Yep definitely wear your mask all the time and keep hand sanitizer on your desk and in your pocket for when you touch door knobs etc. Use immediately afterwards. I even dab some onto my coat sleeves that happen to touch things. You can't be too safe I say.

All very good quotes today. I'll choose #1 first.

Did you go for a walk this morning? It's Brrrrr here.

Hi LB, Good! I know you enjoy them. Nice you went for another walk today. Bummer you won't be able to next week. Walks are so relaxing and pleasant. Have you ever just 'phased out' while walking just enjoying it? That's the best .. let go of stress and worries .. just walking along.  :)

That's exactly how I felt when I was able to take walks on the trail with Rizzo.  With my stupid arthritis in my knee I can't do that anymore and I miss it alot!!!

Hey!!! My walks aren't so fun with the arthritis in my knees. My knees are so  stiff and a wobble when I walk.   I do it cause I need to do it to help lose the rest  of my weight. Also Copper doesn't make it very fun.   I walk slow.  I always have and convinced I always will  But the way copper walks make it seem like i am running!!! But I do love bing out in the fresh air  That is what I enjoy!! Even in the cold.  not so much in the heat!! I miss walking with OLiver he was a good walker.   My walks aren't so long like a hike though

No No....Don't you dare apologize.  No sadness here.  I still have my Rizzo and we walk around the outside of the house.  Jim takes him on his long walks.  I'm glad you enjoy your walks.  It's a wonderful way to clear your head for sure.  I always came back in a better frame of mind.

LB....Absolutely, arthritis in the knees is no fun whatsoever.  Is knee replacement in your future?  I keep putting it off, but I know I'm going to have to seriously think about it, after this pandemic is under control.

Hi LB, Understood about walking with stiff knees. Kudos to you. It's definitely not fun .. especially I'm sure since Copper doesn't want to walk slow!! I enjoy the fresh air too but I have to applaud you walking in the cold. Brrrrr that gets to me in the cold and I dont. lol Awww sweetheart Oliver brings a smile.  :) I bet you're tired after going into work today and the drive to and from. Snuggle in and sleep good.

All quotes are good.

Hi jicaji, Okay. Whew! And very true you still have your Rizzo. It's nice you two walk around outside of the house. And nice he gets his long walks with Jim.

I haven't walked in a while unfortunately. I do rub a gel on my knees sometimes when I do but then my hip would hurt but now I know why from the chiropractor. It's feeling better now though. But now it's too darned cold to walk. lol I did ask hubby yesterday if he'd like to take a walk together but his foot was hurting.

I don't envy you about a knee replacement but I've heard from others who have done that and they are really happy afterwards. It's just doing it and the recovery and PT that's not pleasant to look forward to. One day at a time.  ;)

I'm late, copper stole my spot on the couch in front of my computer.  LOL Copper doesn't walk fast at all. He is tooooo slow.  I am sure knee surgery is down the road. He hasn't brought it up.   MY left knee is bone on bone.  But it hasn't gotten worse since last years x rays. They say walk and loosing weight will help.  I don't see it. Still a lot of pain, maybe cause winter??? But shot is not working but I wonder if it would be worse if I didn't get the shot  I dont walk far either. Just around the apartment complex. I say abut 1/2 mile 2x a day. I would probably do mor eif I idnt have copper with me sometimes I just want to leave hi behind but I feel guilty leaving him home.

Oh my gosh LB. Copper stole you spot on the couch. Lol Awwww he's a slow walker. Cutie pie. You've got a loving heart LB feeling guilty if you leave him at home when you walk. Oh geesh bone on bone. It's good though your left knee hasn't gotten worse since last year's x-rays. (Knock on wood) I agree about if loosing weight helps. I was told that years ago. Lost the extra weight and still off but knees still ache when they want to. I say loosing weight does have to have its benefits helping though. True about winter too. Very true about wondering what you'd feel like without the shot. I agree and it's probably helping. You're doing your best that's for sure.

#2 love it  :) Especially "Even if your garland's a little droopy. It's okay to be a little tilted." I've got that down pat sometimes. LOL
I've been enjoying the quotes from Princess Sassy Pants. I like that name too.  ;D

Hi LB  :) Good!! Great timing with being able to get a new one. No matter how long it takes I'm glad you're getting a new one. Thumbs up.  ;)

There was a momma doe and her two little ones in the backyard earlier. The one is sooo small. I call it Little Cutie or Tiny Hiney. lol I should post it's picture.
Now there's two other deer in yard eating and drinking from birdbath with heater I put in during the winter so it doesn't freeze for birds etc.

TGIF for you tomorrow! Next week you work from home, correct?

PA's governor has now tested positive and PA's #s continue to sky rocket so PA is now in another "mostly" lockdown until early January 2021. Restaurants now take out only (we haven't been to a restaurant since this began), some schools still offer in-school or virtual but all my granddaughters schools are now virtual. Lots of stores/venues must close effective this Saturday. Grocery stores still open of course but they and other stores, still allowed to remain open, are back to 50 people limits at a time and lines outside and head counting. I'm glad hubby recently had a hair cut and me a trim at hair salon. These places among others are now on the very limited stay open list.

What's happening in other Cheerios states?

Stay cautious, healthy and safe.  :-*

HI paulie.  NJ isn't shutting down restaurant's.  Our Governor is keeping as is with curfew at 10 pm.  The restaurants need to close than I think it's ar 25% capacity also Not sure cause I don't go to restaurants now  He doesn't think the spread is from restaurants he thinks it's the gatherings at home.  Which we are only allowed 10 people. Which is stupid I would like to see how he enforces that.  NY restaurants are closed too now starting Monday.   

Yes I work from home next week but I am off Monday and Tuesday . I have 2 more vacation days I need to use up.  LOL  Then the next weeks is 4 day weekends as well.  Yippee!!!

You sound like me Paulie with your Deers!! But mine are squirrels.  I feed them peanuts!! They wait for me in the morning. They are either out side my back porch waiting for me or  when they see me come  out they come running over!!! I just lve them.  I counted 13 so far!!!!

ooh seems like I had a lot to say tonight!!!! LOL

Hi LB, Great about you having off Monday and Tuesday. Yep use up those vacation days for sure. And the next week 4 day weekends! Yes Yippee!!

Awww very cool about you and your squirrels .. and 13 so far! Give them some time and you're going to have more because they're spreading the word about the nice lady who feeds peanuts!!  ;D Very cool they are either waiting for you or coming running over to you. I hope you're talking to them so they know your voice too. I'm betting you're already talking to them. Very cool.  ;)

I agree about govenors not being able to enforce home gatherings to 10. Same here. I think that's what's contributed to the surge.

I'm glad you had a lot to say because I enjoyed reading it!!  :)

Copper is probably getting used to seeing them around you.  How sweet....Incredible how quickly the squirrels learn!!  I remember when my girls were young and we used to leave nuts on the front porch for ONE squirrel.  She used to come everyday.  I was at work once and I got a call from them that they opened the front door to go out front and there were about 7 squirrels waiting on the porch.  I told them to throw a few nuts out the window and go out the back door!!!! ;)

LB, Beautiful morning and temp here so I'm thinking the same for you. I'm wondering about your walk this morning. Did you take some peanuts with you? I'm envisioning your walk turning into a squirrel parade!! LOL Love it!

jicaji, Cute squirrel story about your daughters when they were young .. and go out the back door! lol

Hi baz, Good to see you. I hope Santa can surprise you with a new computer. I agree about the Diva. That would be awwwwsome!

A frustrating story. Yesterday I wrapped mini solar string lights around the upper deck raining and the arbor that leads into to the walking path in my fairy garden. I've done this many times in the past and had the new lights turned on and ready to go. They lit up when I took them into a dark room. I was sooo disappointed when after dark none of them lit!! Darn it. It's sunny today so I'll give them today to charge more and see what happens tonight. Fingers and toes crossed.  ;)

Have a good day everyone.

AT first my friends thought vole I got a photo and vote is probably a rat. Not sure what o do It was eating the seeds that feel from the bird feeder and than saw it bringing leaves into the hole. The first thing I saw this morning  was that it chasing the squirrels away  :( Let me see if I can bring  photos here

Hi jicaji, Thanks.  They turned and looked soooo pretty .. then a bit later they were blinking away. I had them set on steady not blink. lol
I got them over a year ago. I guess sitting in the box the battery got old and the setting confused. lol They didn't stay lit for real long either. Oh well. Tomorrow night should be interesting!  ::)

It sounds like your area is turning very cold tomorrow. Brrrrr Are you in the path of the storm this mid-week? My area is. Ugh  We're to get some snow Wed but Wed night into Thursday 1 to 2 inches per hour for 12 hours!?! No way!! I'm sooooo not ready for this!!

Late start yes Baz!! I sure started something I now have I think a rat that buried a hole right outside of mhy back right next to bird feeder. AT first my friends thought vole I got a photo and vote is probably a rat. Not sure what o do It was eating the seeds that feel from the bird feeder and than saw it bringing leaves into the hole. The first thing I saw this morning  was that it chasing the squirrels away  :( Let me see if I can bring  photos here
here we go first photo is its home
Oh no LB!! No way!! Eeeeuuuuuu  That's nasty! and germy dangerous! What are you going to do???
Darn it's chasing the squirrels away. Oh yeah if it's taking leaves into the hole it's building a nest. No way can that gritter stay.

I am not sure what I am going to do.  I have to take away the bird seed for a while  My friends said I can still feed the squirrels I think I can they take them right away and bury them else where  It was out grabbing the seed on the ground . Feeding  the birds were my sanity!!! Gave me peace.   Damn Rat!!!

LB... if it were not for my hubby I would stop feeding birds. It attracts voles. And we never had squirrels here when I grew up. But then someone planted a black walnut tree next door, and the squirrels bury the nuts in our yard. I hate it. And I have changed out yards and yards of plants in my front yard to discourage rabbits and deer. I like all wildlife. I just don't like the damage and calling cards they leave.

Hi LB, Good thinking about the squirrels taking the peanuts right away. They definitely do! lol Darn to you not being able to feed the birds until that yucky rat is gone. Can you find and put a flat or otherwise shaped rock over each of those two holes? I'd find something heavy to put over the top of each. Maybe bricks? Once a bit of time has gone by and no more birdseed or holes then you can put your feeder up again hopefully.

Good afternoon!! I let the day get away from me today!!!  I am not sure if I will be going to work tomorrow.  Our computer systemswere hacked and we arent allowed on the system until the figure out what happened.  We will probably get a call around 5 to let us know.  SO my vacation days were wasted because no one worked for the past 2 days. Kind of scary. what  way for 2020 to end.  as well as the snow we are getting tomorrow.  I heard  we are getting anywhere from 5"- 24"  excepting guesses !!!! LOL

Hi LB, Wow to your work computer system being hacked. Darn to your vacation days. I remember you said you had to use them before end of the year. I'm guessing there were other later days in Dec you could have used them. You tried!

My area is getting the snowstorm tomorrow too through tomorrow night into early Thursday morning. Weather forecasters here said we'll definitely get 18" to 20" and possibly 24" with snowfall 2 to 3 inches an hour overnight. Geesh. Wonder what Thursday morning will look like.

Did you get a call from work at 5pm? I hope you can stay home tomorrow too!!

Good Morning we are still down so we are off again.  It's going to be a mess once we are up and running  I am in the 10-15"  of snow. They arent saying much about it but it was on the news earlier this wee that the government got hacked and thousands of companies as well unintentionally. I think it was that.   We still get paid they said this wont affect out pay but I have a feeling we will be doing lots of overtime .

We're expecting a big storm as well. 12" to 18" perhaps!  Glad I did my food shopping Monday.  God forbid I shouldn't have eggs, milk and bread in the house LOL!!!

good morning  We got snow but not as much as they said. I would say bout 4-5 "  and my work is still shut down. Rumor has it we will be down through the remainder of the year but just rumor. This is scary. I am starting to get nervous . Plus I have a co worker texting me all day long about it and its driving me crazy!!! I just wish they would tell us more instead of this day by day thing.

LB - just my 2 cents- if it helps... Maybe only read texts or email twice/day, and/or do not respond to the coworker as often. Perhaps they will slow down? IDK. Enjoy your snow and hug your puppy. And please take care of you. I am proud of you. Hugs  :D

Hi LB, Your work had one heck of a cyber attack. It does sound like what was on the news. I would think all employees will have to continue to be paid due to the circumstances. I can only imagine how senior management is freaking out with business being shut down. Big bucks being lost. In the meantime there's nothing you can do but try not to worry so much and definitely ignore the co-worker you mention. Ignore rumors too. This gives you more time for some nice walks. I'm trying to think positive here.

Same here with the snow. We did get 10 inches but the sleet storm was to stay south of my area. It didn't. We had a 4 hour sleet storm after hours of heavy snow that kept the snow total lower. It did snow some after the long sleet. Clean up was and still not fun. Snowblowers are clogging for everyone. My oldest son and I did our best. Snowblower worked great keeping up before the sleet storm but now it's all a mess to clean up. Same with neighbors. I've called a guy with a monster snowblower who is going to come tomorrow. lol Fingers crossed because after the plow truck came by today there's a huge frozen pile to clean up with temps below freezing. I am soooo ready for spring and summer.  ;D

jicaji, How did you make out with the storm?

Hi baz and Tig

I'm calling it a night. Let's all make tomorrow an awesome day.  ::) ;)

Good Morning  We are still shut down and we did get paid.   I would never think it would take this long to get up and running.  OK now  the nervousness will this cause them to shut down and I am out of a job.  OK my co worker calmed down I said something to her. AT this point I would not be surprised if we are shut down for the rest of the year if the attack was this bad.  I need a good movie to binge watch.   LOL But I think I have seen them all!!! LOL

Hi LB, Oh okay. I understand the phone updates now. Makes sense.

I looked at the website link you provided. Wow!!! That was quite a hack and allegedly stolen files!! This has long range effects on all of the products your employer provides fragrances too . I hadn't thought about that before. That will mean these other companies production of items will be slowed substantially then halted once their fragrances supply is depleted. Wow long ranging effects.

All quotes are good. I especially like #3. Special.

Hi jicaji, Nice! Very special about you having ornaments from your mom and dad and grandparents too. Very special.

I have old ornaments here also and tons from when my children were growing up and grandchildren too. And special ones we bought when living in Germany. I agree they bring happy memories.

I remember the old candle bubble up Christmas lights too!! Lol

We always put up a 5 to 6 ft Christmas tree but not this year since none of our family can congregate here.   :( So I did do some inside decorating otherwise but not a tree.

Here's a story for everyone. Well ..... hubby said he wanted a tree so lets get a smaller one that sits on a table. I was surprised and immediately didn't like the idea. I told him ... "Only old people do that!" LOL Oh my gosh!! He just looked at me and the expression on his face priceless. I then was ROFL because we're not young!  ;D 
I said that because I recall my parents and in-laws doing that when they were up in years. Younger than hubby and me even.

Anyway I wanted to make him happy so we did look and found a really pretty smaller tree artificial and we found some small ornaments. It's pretty and small enough that we can still sit it somewhere in the future even with a larger tree. He's happy!  ;)

jicaji, I thought of you last night. My hubby put on the Hallmark Channel. We enjoy watching them too and guaranteed happy endings.   :)
We watched A Veterans Christmas. I won't mention the ending in case your or anyone hasn't seen it yet but yepper I cried .. happy tears .. of what an awesome ending!

Oh my LB. Good they are making progress but looks like you've got extra time to find things to keep you busy otherwise.
Hopefully you all can continue with current schedule one week in work and then a week working from home. Even with the extra work that will be encountered it can still be done with current schedule. Fingers crossed.

Will get his results back today or tomorrow.  He feels fine. He has a little cough though but he usually has a cough. No tem and his oxygen level was good when he got tested.   As soon as she got temp she wouldn't see my father but he did go and see her a couple of times to help her with something. I saw him last Tuesday but we both had masks on and I kept my distance. and it was only for 20 minutes.  He's 85 and has cancer.  I am so worried.  Cause this virus can turn for the worse at a moments notice.   It just seems its one thing after another.

She only had temp 1 day but she did lose her sense of smell and taste which is still the case.  She is busy purging her house. she has a mild case.  Thank goodness. My fear is that it can take a sudden turn for the worse suddenly. Everyone stay safe!!!

Hi LB, Good news! Great to hear your dad was exercising. 85!! Thumbs up for sure! Good news about your father's girlfriend too. Interesting about the sense of smell and taste. Such a terrible virus. It needs to go!!! Try your best to cancel out any fears of any turns otherwise. Don't give those thoughts any energy. Things are moving forward with continuing good news.  ;)
Thank you for the update LB. Prayers are definitely continuing.
You take care of yourself too, my friend.

I will freeze some.  we had a conference call yesterday with head guy and we are just as confused.  LOL Not sure when we are going back still there is talk to go to another office but its like an hour away and not sure how they will work that when we need to be social distance.  plus wth what I do I need to be in our office  with the printers It's confusing.  LOL I dont think he put all that into consideration  We cant work remotely that has been fixed yet or loioked at so I am quite concern even going back to our office if we are full capacity

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!

Holy rain and wind!! Pouring here now and to rain 2 to 4 inches then with wind gusts in excess at times over 50mph tonight. 60 degrees today and down to 30 tonight. Crazy.

Hubby and I did some food prep yesterday and I'm finishing up today. Tomorrow our children will come by (each at separate times with social distancing darn it!) for their families meals and presents for them and grandchildren tomorrow and bring hubby and my presents from them here. So weird not eating and opening presents together.

I'm definitely going slower and more organized than last holiday and managing the sadness of all of our family being able to be together. I learned my lesson very good last month!!  ;) Not happening again!

Have a great day everyone and a Merry (very different) Christmas!!

For us, just dropping off a few gifts for my grandchildren and that's it.  No family gathering tomorrow.  Breaks my heart.
Hi jicaji, I agree with you about tomorrow .............  :( But we're all going to get through it and everyone's families have great holidays and celebrations next year for sure!!!  :)

Good Morning  My sister is dropping off lasagna and cookies for me today, I usually go to her house for lasagna on Christmas eve and we aren't doing it this year of course.  I think she is dropping enough off enough  for several days. I will freeze some.  we had a conference call yesterday with head guy and we are just as confused.  LOL Not sure when we are going back still there is talk to go to another office but its like an hour away and not sure how they will work that when we need to be social distance.  plus wth what I do I need to be in our office  with the printers It's confusing.  LOL I dont think he put all that into consideration  We cant work remotely that has been fixed yet or loioked at so I am quite concern even going back to our office if we are full capacity
Hi LB, Very nice about your sister and lasagna. Sad for your family too not getting together but by all of us being cautions this year we have next year's holidays to look forward to.  :)

I agree about a confusing conference call yesterday. I do remember you saying a while ago that you have to be at work with printer to do the work you do. I don't see them having everyone go back to work at full capacity considering the current pandemic. They have to consider that into their plan too I'd think. Lets sure hope so!!

How's your dad and his girlfriend feeling today?

#2 and I love #3.  :)

Lb  Both of pips 80 + parents with substantial heath risks have already had and overcame Covid-19.

Both survived this evil virus months ago here in the Garden State !

Apparently any day now they will be offered the vaccine, as proxy of both we are highly recommending it.

We're going to stick it in our younger arms asap.
Just waiting on the long line we are. So we can get back to some normalcy of just living in 2021.
Roughly 330 million people in this country. Vaccine logistics ..

The sooner 80 percent of us prick our arms twice in 2021 the sooner we can all get 'back to normal'.

-Edit to add-

Oma & Opa are definitely up at bat any day now for the vaccine.

Pip & I are so grateful for the first responders & the front line Hospital workers that kept them alive through the 1st wave of Covid-19.

Hero status y'all must come to terms with and accept on your own ground & in your own times.

But do know for sure you are so appreciated and loved by us !


At 80 plus years of some of the most amazing lives you can't imagine we were never ever willing to be letting them go to this virus.

Natural causes can take them peacefully and dignified as they've earned, this we can accept.

This Mother Fu---- not.

Hi LB, Wow about your father and good that he has no symptoms. Good news about his 10 days too. Prayers continue.

I'm glad you're getting tested. I've been worried and wondering about that. Please let us know your results. Prayers continue for you too.

#1.  I was speaking with my sister and we were actually remembering the times when we were kids and all the Christmas's past with relatives coming to spend the holidays with us.  Brought back memories of so many things...All of us going to church Christmas Eve, to opening the mountains of gifts under the tree Christmas morning to the wonderful aromas in the kitchen from all the delicious foods my mother, grandmothers and Aunt would be making for Christmas dinner.   

This year was certainly different, but grateful my husband and I are healthy and have each other!

Hi LB, Have you been able to walk in these Brrrr temps? Also, what's happening with that rat situation and bird seed?

Good news about you father and girlfriend. Oh yeah you get your test today, Sunday! not Saturday. My days are mixed up the past few days with the holiday.

I agree your work or not work and where schedule is definitely confusing! Let me know then .. and also your results Wed or Thursday.

Hi jicai, Awe sounds like you and your sister had a pleasant trip down memory lane. Great memories for you.

Agreed this year was very different. Agreed also that we all must be grateful for all of the good in our lives.

I love going through memory lane... I haven't done that for  quite some time!!!!My rat made a fort after he got snowed in during our storm a couple of weeks ago  He's still around and yes Im feeding the birds.  He seems pretty innocent for now.  I am afrai the apt complex management will yell at me for the rat. I guess I am stupid.  Still not working there will be an update some time today. May be going back tomorrow or Wednesday kind of nervous how they will handle this.  SInce remote is not working. Maybe it does now will find out today.  My brother who had covid who almost dies is back to his old ways and  so is his son who went to disney world and going again doesnt care about covid. It's getting me so aggravated.  My brother actually stopped talking to me.  Because he is playing the victim playing the system. I dont get them and I need to step away from them.

Hi LB, Sounds like it's time for you to go down memory lane then smile and relax.

I don't know how management would find out about the rat because there's probably no-one going out back into their yards maybe? Hope not. Nope you're not stupid. Don't say that.

Hmm sounds like tomorrow or Wednesday is the return to work day. Time will tell. All you can do is go one day at a time. I understand your worry about returning. Fingers crossed.

I'm dumbfounded by your brother and his son's actions. Your aggravation is totally understandable. It's sad your brother has stopped speaking to you because of it. You are worried about him/them and love him. I agree about your stepping away for your own mental and physical health. Say prayers. That's about all you can do since you've tried speaking to your brother about it.

You take care. Keep us updated about work.

Hi I had to go into the office up north to do something with computer. what a waste of time. It could have been done from home. They tried to bring up our office computer system and it failed they said it should be fixed by some time today.  Now we need to go into office maybe tomorrow but possibly Monday at fll capacity but we are not socially distance equipped. They said they will figure it out but if the way they handled today is how they will figure it out.  I have no faith.  I am shaking.  I do not want to be in that office with everyone. Breath in breath out
