    They are saying 62 today and it is 54 now. Rain some too.

    I need to go pack lunch, put the dried dishes up and find the directions for a crocheting thingy that I should know off the top of my head but.... want to check something.

    Teigan will come home today after school. :) :) :)

    Everybody have a GREAT day!

    I woke up with a slight headache on the back, right side. Hoping it doesn't develop. I think i'm going to cancel my biofeedback for tomorrow as i've been having some intestional issues and I really don't want to be there doing those exercises with those kind of issues going on. I go again in two weeks so not too far off. I realized this morning that my Praxis is NEXT WEEK! Yikes! I'm almost done studying/reviewing math, need to get back to the reading/writing stuff and take some practice tests on all of it and see how I do this week.

    Today I have nothing on my schedule. I need to go pick up my refill prescription and then I will be working on my class reading, might do some decluttering when I take breaks. I also need to figure out what to get DH for his birthday on Wednesday. He isn't giving me anything, drives me crazy. He is the hardest person to buy for.

    Enjoy your day!

    Jessica, off the top of my head, telescope, binoculars, or drone? If I think of anything else will let you know. If all else fails ... fun socks! :)

    Just sort through some papers and need to place them in the file cabinet. I have to run to the Dollar Tree for cards and make some phone calls. The I will start in the living room doing some decluttering. Supper will be easy tonight, using up leftovers.

    Morning! Rough night with hot flashes but I got up late as I finally fell asleep around 5:30. Had to wait 30 minutes online for annual gastro appointement and no deciding of the schedule, it's that time that day and that's it! pfffff our medical system is not easy, but it is free.

    Have posted on my blog too and menu-planned, did some essentrics.. I need to call mom too. My thumb is hurting this morning, too much crocheting this weekend. will have to wear my orthesis (haven't worn it in a long time).

    Lots of small odds and ends today.

    Have a great day

    Hello all! Cloudy here but supposed to be in the low 70's.

    Super Bowl commercials were nothing special. The food was OK, though. Was able to finish the laundry.

    Knee doesn't hurt his morning but as the main comes and goes I wonder when/if it will start up again. Our plan for today is to take Buffy to get some new dog toys as she has eviscerated all those that she has. Also need some more canned food.

    As today is New Year's Eve for the Lunar New Year I plan to make some Chinese food for dinner. A beef stir fry, sesame noodles, frozen dumplings and, if I'm really ambitious, marinated cucumbers and an eggplant dish. Some of the stuff is real easy. Tomorrow our celebration will be to go to the local buffet.

    Lana - enjoy the pleasant weather
    Jody - filing will be a big help towards general decluttering
    Faye - weather is weird
    Lucie - glad you got some sleep
    Jess - hope the headache goes away

    He has binoculars and DS has a drone, but a telescope might be the ticket, if I can find one around here! Thank you! We had talked about that a while back, can't believe I didn't remember that. Duh!

    Afternoon! Picked up the mail, one load of laundry is going. Paid bills, phoned cell phone company for the $5 raise... so I will not be getting the raise and it will cost me $2 less. Scheduled gastro appointment for next week. Ordered medication to pick up tomorrow. Cut up pineapple. Prepped yogourt pots for the week. Prepped gym clothes and work clothes for tomorrow. Washed main bathroom (quick as we only have a sink in there and a toilet for now).
    Tried to do OTR (one-thing a room declutter but finding it harder to find stuff).
    Took recycling out (half of it as container is full already).
    Took notes for next doctor appointment and took some notes on what I would like to happen in each room of the house.

    Good morning
    A little cooler here today. DH< DD and I went to BF basketball final last night and while we were there the rain poured down. We were soaked getting to the car but it was nice after being so hot.
    Work for me today, after work I will have a performance meeting with the boss. We normally have one a year but we missed last years for what ever reason. Often at these meetings she will give me a pay raise so am hoping for that today as I feel I have worked hard for her this past year.
    When I get home tonight I will pack for the visit the the breast centre tomorrow for the repeat mammogram and biopsy (if needed). I can be there all day and they recommend that you bring something to do. I will pack a book and hopefully some knitting.

    Anyway must head off, I hope that you all have an amazing day,

    Hi again!

    I did a load of laundry, ran out and picked up my refill script, vacuumed the stairs and rugs, and ran Alice. Folded the laundry and put away and took photos of some dresses I decluttered yesterday to post on a sale site. The rest of the clothing will go to the Thrift Store. They are just casual dresses so not what is needed for the donations for the Prom for the homeless teens. I do have some jewelry that might work though that I will be taking in. I logged what I could remember of my food from yesterday and what i've had this morning, made DS's PT appointments for this week, cancelled my biofeedback appointment for tomorrow and scheduled Perry's follow-up Vet visit for Friday. I also ordered DH a telescope on Amazon since there isn't anywhere here that sells any (thanks for the suggestion Jody) and paid the expedited shipping to get it here by Wednesday for his birthday. I use my brother's Prime account so normally it would have been free shipping but it wouldn't get it here until Monday. It says guaranteed by Wednesday so we'll see, being on an island i'm always leery of paying for the expedited and never have before. I've been asking the man for weeks what he wants and he says nothing. :rolleyes: I should have given him his wish.

    Now I suppose I should do some homework. I've procrastinated about as long as I can. haha Not much else to do unless I want to dig into decluttering the filing cabinet.

    Katrina- Hoping all goes well tomorrow and it's nothing to worry about.
    Debbie- I wasn't impressed with the commercials either. DD and I agreed that all the robot/AI stuff was kind of disturbing.
    Lucie- You've been busy today!

    Not sure if anyone noticed the spammer but I reported it.

    Katrina hope all goes well tomorrow - sending you positive vibes. The rain must be good for your area. Hoping for a pay raise!

    DH just called he worked later and will be here around 6:15.
    Watched 3 Christmas movies today :p

    Did I tell you dil decided she doesn't like her job (again) and says she might be going back to school to go into nursing... ok, well,, uh, you know you just bought a house ... maybe you should start making some money?! DH is upset... ds is the one who put down the cash ... she doesn't have a penny to her name. ah well, we'll see she only gets her answer in April and may change her mind again in that time.

    Hi, everyone!

    Work was okay. Two classes had cooking labs. Three classes had a test today, and one reviewed for a test. I went to the doctor after work. He's ordering an MRI on my back and getting a back specialist to look at it. He wants me to keep taking my muscle relaxer and anti-inflammatory medicine. I'm ready for this back episode to be in the past.

    DD21 called last night. I'm not so sure the job in California is going to work out for the full 6 months. Way to much to talk about on here. DH and I are going out there on our spring break. If things are still going to way they are now, we may suggest she break ties and come home with us. Sometimes, you have to trust your instinct.

    We reached 71° today. I had students with coats on. I ran the air conditioner in my classroom today!

    Lucie, I teach a class of young married age people at church who have young children. Of course, they are always telling tales about life with young children and I tell them to just wait. When your kids get older, the problems just get bigger!!!
    Lana, hope your day at work was good and that you enjoyed Teigan after school.
    Faye, I hope DGS gets over his runny nose soon.
    Jess, your day sounded busy! The anxiety over the Praxis is the worst!
    Katrina, praying for your tests to be all clear and good news. Did you get the raise?
    Debbie, enjoy the celebration of the new year!
    Jody, paper decluttering is what I hate the most!

    I saw the spammer, too. Hope it's taken care of soon.

    Hope you all have a great evening!

    I ended up going to the dentist today because I have been sucking down about 6 painkillers a day for a week. I was having a tooth crowned and it went "south" as the dentist said. I couldn't localize it to me it was one tooth on day and other teeth another. I thought the bit was off. No such luck a root canal is schedule for next Tuesday. I have blood work done tomorrow and Monday a scheduled biopsy on my thyroid. It will be a long week ahead as my brother needs to figure out why his heart is working at only 40%. The insurance company sent to a doctor that took his insurance but didn't have privileges at the hospital that takes his insurance. We are hoping by next week he can get the heart cauterization done. Mom, is seeing a doctor about there being too much iron in her blood.

    I find that I am not anxious about any of this, I have found my faith carries me through these times,.But to be totally honest, my weight is want I get anxious about. I need to loose 45-50 pounds and that scale won't move. I am going to try and keep a food journal and have my neighbor look it over and see what happens, I am thinking I am not realizing what I am putting in my mouth because I am a grazer when I eat or am eating out of boredom. I have been trying to drink more hot tea and it seems to curb the appetite. I strive, I try, I need to do it!

    Good evening,
    home from work, got the pay rise and she will back date it to October last year. Happy with that.
    Just enjoying the rain here, it is good because it has been so hot and dry. We are a country on contrasts, there are bush fires in the southern states and floods in the northern states.
    Going to get ready for tomorrow, thank you all for your positive thoughts, I know that I will have you all with me.
    Much love,
