Oh, girl thanks for the chuckle I NEEDED that today!
Just glad you've got yourself moved!

Well, how do you like them apples? I approached my boss about continuing to work from home in the safety of my environment.

Do you want to know her response?

We are not among the businesses that have been ordered to close and we have measures in place. You can choose whether you will isolate or not. But the work from home is no longer an option going forward. You can take unpaid leave should you choose. No problem. Whether we are still in business is a week to week situation. We will let you know if we are still operating. Cant survive on 4 pg papers with no flyers. Just drop Joyce an email indicating your intention of taking a leave of absence and she will do up an ROE. We will waive the 2-week notice.

No thought or consideration. No compromises. WOW. Just cold and calculating!

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

I'm sorry for your loss of Grizlund. What a tough decision. He is beautiful! I have a cat, Nova, that looks oh so similar to Grizlund. She was found in a dumpster by my daughter when she was a kitten. It stunted her growth a little, so she looks like a little cat, but she is 8 years old. Pure black, not a spot of white anywhere. Don dotes on her, brushing, and hiding treats around. Her coat just shines. Truly a beautiful cat. It's so hard to lose a pet. Again, I'm sorry.

Working from home, especially in the toxic environment of your work place, is really an added bonus! Hopefully that will be a thing, at least for the short term, if not a long term solution. There is the silver lining with this whole COVID outbreak!

Tonight, I will go to our old place and wipe out the fridge, then vacuum my way out the door. Then done! I will go on Saturday and check the mail one last time. I have it being forwarded to a PO BOX starting on the 27th. I'm relieved to have this move almost over! Moving is stressful enough, but dealing with the shut down of most everything, and the run on cleaning supplies, it was a tad bit more stressful. We slept at the new place last night. Nothing is unpacked but the coffee maker and bean grinder. Guess you can tell what is most important to us! LOL! So, we had fresh hot coffee this morning, but couldn't shower, as I have no idea where the towels are at. Hmm...that will be something I must find tonight! OR my co-workers are going to be requesting to work from home too...for reasons unrelated to COVID... emoticon

Have a good day. Chat soon!

I continue to work from home and even after the 14 days am hoping to continue to do so.

I had an e-mail from my boss today saying that everything is fine so far She's made adjustments to the printed distributions and encouraging everybody to read the online digital version. That will cut costs way down and I still have my full-time job.

On a very sad note, I lost a kitty today. My Grizlund 15 years old. I had noticed a drastic change in him since returning from New Brunswick. He was always overweight because he was my grazer, but he had become very lethargic, and his eyes were not clear and hos sees had expanded even more. I knew it wasn't weight gain. So I had him taken to the vet for a check-up today. The ultrasound showed that the bloating was all fluid surrounding his organs in order to protect them and there were masses within the fluid. Dr. said it was one of two things, Cancer or F.I.T which there was no treatment for. With breaking heart I gave her the authorization to euthanize him. My Grizlund, out of all 9 kitties he had attached himself to my heartstrings the most.
He was the strong silent type. Barely a sound out of him at any time. When he did it was barely a squeak. He had been born without mature vocal cords. But he'd come to me look up at me with those emerald green eyes and paw my hand adamantly wanting to be petted. He'd sleep at the top of the bed on my pillow. May he rest in peace.

Good Morning. So far, we are still working here. I expect that to change daily, but have not heard anything yet. We are not in a total lock down as of yet either. Again, I expect that to happen any day. My main focus is just to get moved completely. I am partially both places. I have my bed, clothes, and toiletries, a handful of dishes, cups and silver, and that's it at our apartment. The rest of our stuff has been put in storage, or moved to the new place. It's odd to be in between, but as the "new" place is still under construction, we can't fully move in. I'm crossing my fingers they will do the final touches today, i.e. install the shower, and finish the bathroom floor, and we can get in there tomorrow or Wed. I need to get fully out of our apartment so I can clean it. I have been cleaning room by room, as we aren't using all the rooms anymore. Two bedrooms, one bathroom, living room and dining room are clean. Kitchen is scrubbed except for the fridge, as I still have food in there. Although, not much, as I haven't been to the store in over two weeks. It will just need a final wipe down. That leaves just the third bedroom and bathroom, which I am living out of right now. What a train wreck to be moving right now. But, others have it much worse, and I bear that in mind daily. So far everybody at work is well, but all services are cancelled. We do arrangements over the phone and on line, and either cremate, or do a direct burial, no witness. It's sad. Really sad, and those grieving families get no closure. I am curious to see what our new normal will be as the days progress. That's my Monday musings. Stay well! emoticon

I'm doing my best with what knowhow I have to keep everyone safe and protected to prevent this from spreading any more.

I myself am still on self-quarantine and with being able to work from home, will stay that way for as long as I possibly can.

How did everyone else's day go today?

With the cold crisp temperatures, clear blue skies and sunshine streaming in through my windows I got an awful lot accomplished. To look around you'd never know it though because the things I did were clean out and reorganize closets and dressers. It was a pitch and toss day. I did, of course, do up the week's laundry of three loads, wash, dry fold and put away. I even got outdoors and knocked long icicles off the eaves and shovelled the ice from the back landing.
To be continued tomorrow.

These are uncertain times for sure. It makes me feel two things. One, very, very angry that it happened at all and two very, very angry that it's caused so much chaos, mayhem and panic from fear. And all created by man.

I wish our community pulled together like that At least I haven't heard of anything, just yet.

My books I know she "cares" but at the same time I know she's panicking because advertisers are backing down, cutting back. So what does she do? She puts together a "helping hand" offering special advertising with discounted specials for those who are remaining open or can remain open Which is fine but the way she does it makes her sound like she's jumped on the bandwagon to take advantage of the situation.
There was no warmth in her message. It really upset me. So I put some in mine. Showing some empathy, sympathy and consideration.

One of our government sites put together a list of how many had contracted the virus within each province. Our totals are less than 1000, thankfully. And with the State of Emergency set in place with any faith, we should get through it. Not with flying colours but better situated than other countries.

If you haven't already and get the chance to listen to the video on Utube do. It's a real eye-opener. I posted the link.

Isn't it just a crazy time to be alive! Two weeks ago, who would have dreamed this is where we would be at. Everything is closed around here. I haven't been near a grocery store in over a week. And even then, the shelves were pretty bare. My work is having a struggle deciding what to do as far as keeping distance, yet keeping on. We have to keep working, as people aren't going to hold off on passing away. In fact, as morbid as it sounds, if things don't take a drastic turn, burials, and cremations may take a drastic upswing. I'm glad you self quarantined already after your travels. I wish you and hubby well. One thing in our community, it has really pulled people together in an odd way. Folks have created neighborhood groups where there are people who are not at a high risk and can help, and those that are at high risk, and need help. Grocery's are being purchased, and front porch delivered. It really is a beautiful thing. Stay well!

As we all know these are serious times and not to be taken lightly. Although I am believing and having faith that this will come to an end and soon we should in all seriousness take every precaution necessary.

In Canada, the province of New Brunswick had found that their people weren't taking it as seriously as they should and their government has declared a state of emergency in order to ensure their safeguard against the virus.

New Brunswick is now under a STATE OF EMERGENCY. Much of what has been recommended before is now mandatory by law. Please refer to the following statement for details and exemptions:

As a result of this declaration:

All food and beverage businesses will be reduced to take-out and delivery service only.
All lounges and special facilities licenced under the Liquor Control Act will stop admitting patrons.
All swimming pools, spas, saunas, waterparks, gymnasiums, yoga studios, dance studios, rinks and arenas, tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields, climbing walls, escape rooms, ski hills, golf courses, arcades, amusement centres, pool halls, bowling alleys, casinos, cinemas, libraries, museums, zoos, aquariums, barbers, hairstylists, esthetics service providers, sugar bush operations, and theatres or other live performance venues will stop admitting members of the public.
Schools, colleges, universities and private schools must be closed to students. Institutions that have students in residence are permitted to allow them to remain in residence until they can safely return home. Online course delivery may continue.
Other measures under the declaration of a state of emergency include:
All businesses in retail sales will stop admitting patrons, except grocery stores; pharmacies; repair garages; post offices; financial and lending institutions; retailers of fuel, hardware and automotive parts; convenience stores; animal and fish feed providers; and corporate and agency stores of NB Liquor and Cannabis NB. All businesses required to stop admitting patrons are permitted to sell online or over the phone and to arrange delivery or pick-up of purchases.
Every person directed by a physician to self-isolate will obey.
Every person who has been outside Canada will self-isolate within their home for 14 days after their return to Canada, and, if they experience symptoms of COVID-19 during that period, they will remain self-isolated until they are free of symptoms. This requirement does not apply to people exempted by the chief medical officer of health.
Owners and operators of all other premises at which people may gather in large numbers will take all reasonable steps to prevent gatherings of more than 10 people.
All regulated health services providers will cease operations unless the services to be provided are to address essential health care or an emergency health-care situation.
All unregulated health services providers, with the exception of those that are providing direct support to regulated health services providers, shall cease operations immediately.
Owners and managers of all workplaces and organizers of all activities will take every reasonable step to ensure minimal interaction of people within 2 metres of each other and carry out advice to minimize risk as issued by the chief medical officer of health.
All owners and managers of all workplaces will reduce to critical functions and will take every reasonable step required to prevent people who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 from entering the workplace, in accordance with advice issued by the chief medical officer of health or Worksafe New Brunswick. They will also take every reasonable step required to prevent people from entering workplaces who have travelled internationally in the previous 14 days.
All licenses, registrations, certificates and permits issued by the Province of New Brunswick valid as of March 16, 2020, shall remain valid until May 31, 2020, unless suspended by a court or by other authority under an Act of the Province.
The right of landlords under section 19 of the Residential Tenancies Act to require tenants to vacate for non-payment of rent, and the authority of residential tenancies officers under section 22 of that act to evict tenants for the same reason, are suspended, until May 31, 2020.

OH! What a time to have to be moving! I sincerely hope everything works out for you REDSHOEBLUE!

We're still having chilly temperatures but clear skies and sunshine.

I went to go into work Monday. Boss meets me at the door and quarantines me for 14 days. So I'm working from home! Stands to reason. I've been through three international airports!

I'm handling this very nicely! I'm up at my usual 5 am getting a pile of things done around the home before sitting down at my computer at 9 am! I wish I could do this permanently!

Happy to hear that you are home safe and sound! And that Walt is also safe and sound, and happy to have you there as well! emoticon
Life is so not normal right now. Well, for anybody! As the world is getting crazy with the COVD, I am just trying to take it day by day. I'll catch you up quickly. My partner and I are in the middle of a move. We have a truck scheduled for two weeks from now, but, are not sure if that's going to actually pan out into anything. They may have to cancel. I have a place to move, that is not quite ready yet, so I am hoping the contractors will be able to finish up so it is livable in two weeks! My lease is up as of the end of this month where we are at, so we have to be out of there. I'm quite concerned that we are going to be caught with nowhere to land. This weekend we rented a storage shed, and are actively packing and moving boxes into storage, via our cars. One trip at a time...But, it is progress. I'm really hoping by the end of this coming weekend to have most of the small stuff packed and moved. Just in case. We are going to limit to just a few items for kitchen, etc. I would rather have it all safe in storage and deal with just a few items if we are stuck with nowhere to go for a bit. Wow, what a crazy time and place to be living...and moving! I have talked to some friends that have trucks and are willing to help move the big stuff if it comes to needing that assistance. I really appreciate my community of friends. They are amazing.
Now...on to better news! I have lost 5 lbs as of this morning. I realize it may be stress related, but I have been really careful and watching what I'm eating! The grocery store shelves are empty so it makes it really easy to eat fresh fruit and veges, as it is really all the store has in stock! emoticon

Take care friend!

Just to catch you all up.

Walt and I are perfectly fine. Even with the pandemonium panic out there over the CoroVirus. Flying via International Airports; Toronto and Calgary, I came home unscathed as well.
The older and even some of the young generations were wearing the masks. Most I'll assume had health issues and weaker immune systems so taking every precaution. I kept a bottle of hand sanitizer gel with me at all times and made sure I washed my hands for the 20-30 seconds. Being a nurse for a good 25 years know the handwashing procedure. the scrub up to the elbow procedure. I'm good!

But, yes, it's a crazy world out there presently. Sales for over stalking of almost everything have gone through the roof Toilet paper ion particular. The shelves are bare!
Thankfully I stalked up on my Costco items before I left and this broke out. So I'm fine. And of course, being old school being raised and experiencing things like being without hydro, cooking on a wood cookstove, wood heat, I know exactly how to revert back to such a life without hesitation should the need arise. And unlike today's generation, I know how to bulk bake and cook rather than rely on microwaves and pre-packaged and prepared foods.
My freezers are full. If it comes down to that and being quarantined to our homes.

In the meantime, life goes on one day at a time.

Today I'm unpacking and doing up my bit of laundry.
I am very proud of this man of Mine. I came home to one very clean house and his laundry all washed, dried, folded and put away.
He's like a giddy schoolboy who's fallen in love for the first time.

There's nothing like being busy to take your mind off of things or use the negative energy to work through frustrations and in the end come out feeling exonerated with accomplishments well done to boot!

Yeah see, I'm not a stress or an emotional eater. Never was. When Im stressed or emotional I get busy, physically busy. It keeps my mind active and thinking about what's causing it. It's my vent.

Good for you! Not only were you away from home and regular routine, but you had a bucket load of stress as well! I'm really impressed, as I would likely have been grief eating had I been in your position. Safe travels home in a few days. Thinking about you and your family. emoticon

Good afternoon all!

Three days until I fly home. Wish I were already there.
I already have pretty much everything organized and repacked except the essentials.

I've taken full advantage of my sister's exercise bike and what I eat and portion sizes.

Oh yeah just because I'm on "vacation" I don't kick it all to the curb!

I just read through your recent posts. They literally gave me chills. What a beautiful photo of your parents. The whole process seems so peaceful. I'm sorry you couldn't be there, but I know he felt your spirit and heard your words.
I'm happy to hear you are the taking the time you need with your sister. I know your heart is broken. Family, friends, and fond memories shared, will all help you through this time.
Thinking of you friend... emoticon

Although dad has passed before myself and my youngest sister could get there she and I are going to spend some very much needed quality time together. So she was able to transfer her ticket to my name and with connecting flights in combination with my ticket, I will be flying out to New Brunswick rather than Ontario for this time.

I'm working on making sure everything is in order here and Walter has minimal to do and look after I will have that all accomplished today I am all but packed as well. It's all good.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

To all our dear family & friends, to all who were blessed to have known our dear dad! He has gained his new robe! His new body. He is now rejoicing on the hills of glory with our dear sweet mother. Our silver-haired daddy went to glory at 11:35 this morning. He raised his hands to glory and as mom reached out hers they were reunited in heaven! Although we are sad and will miss our dear sweet dad we are rejoicing he is now at peace in a place where there is no disappointment, no sorrow or pain. Now he and mom stand hand in hand by the pearly gate and wait for their five girls. We will see you!! Dad, you wave and mom calls out to us!!!! We cannot wait

As of 4 am this morning the message from home was, " We are sitting with dad. His breathing is very shallow now. They have removed his oxygen and we are telling him that all five girls are here with all our blessings. It's alright. Take mom's hand and cross over."

So I suspect he will be gone before I actually get there. Then it will be a celebration of life.

Oh sweetie, You have no idea how comforting that is to know.

With mom, it was Dementia/Alzheimer With dad it's just his body giving out and old age. And he's tired He wants to be with mom now and I gave him my blessing. I let him know that it was OK. If he wanted to go before I got there. Go, go where he would be pain-free and 18-20 years old again.
And this is ten times harder for me because it is my father. I was far closer to my dad than my mom. I was daddy's girl.

You have got your work cut out for you! You will have a very busy weekend! Hopefully having everything in order before you leave, will give you the time you need to focus on you, your dad, and your family. I'll be thinking of you!

I'm glad to hear that your dad is resting well. Hey, if you're craving a diet coke...might as well go for it!

Be safe friend. Know there are lots of comforting thoughts and prayers going out for you and your family. emoticon

Thank you so much, girlfriend. Just knowing I have your support and prayers will help sustain and get me through this.

What a whirlwind these next four days are going to be!
I've got two newspapers to putto bed all before Monday 4 pm! I want everything cleaned, organized at work and home including having all the laundry caught up before I leave Tuesday. I don't want Walt to have to worry about anything except the absolute essentials. So I have my work cut out for me!

I've already started doing things this morning so I have a head start.

Dad is now in palliative/hospice They have him on pain meds so that he sleeps and rests well. They have been diligent with this in keeping him on schedule. He woke yesterday and asked for a diet coke, of all things, and he drank a boost. All good.

Oh No! Such heart wrenching news. I'm glad you were able to get your tickets adjusted so you can go earlier. I don't have words that will ease your pain, and really all I can say is I'm sorry. Loss is never easy. As you work through all the emotions that are bound to flow through, know that you have a friend, a listening ear, and an open heart, thinking about you and your family as you go through this. There is no right way to grieve, so just let your body and your mind process this as it will. I'm thinking of you, sending intentional prayers to a higher power... emoticon

A very very heavy-hearted day for me yesterday from start to finish.
I woke up out of a dead sleep with a song my father used to sing. I could hear him singing it to me. There's a family Bible on the table. It's pages torn and hard to read and I knew. I already knew.

An hour later my sister was messaging
Dad will not make it until July. I'm changing his care plan today to comfort measures palliative care. We are moving him into a private room. The same room our dear mother was in. If you can change your tickets to come now I would highly recommend it.

So yesterday it was a heart-wrenching day for me.
Out of us five girls I was closest to my father. I was his go-to girl, his tom-boy. I went everywhere and did everything with my dad.
So, yes I was able to change my flight and I leave next Wednesday and will return the 14th,
I'm hanging in there. The emotions have calmed down and I'm functional again.

I stayed at work so that I'd have something to keep me preoccupied. Even in that, I've never cried so hard in my life. I got through the day Once I got home I let go and let the emotions vent themselves. I talked to all of my sisters via chat and phone.

What was hardest was for me to be the "weak link in the chain." I've always been the cornerstone for every one of my sisters. This time the tables were turned. But now I'm back on solid ground and can be that cornerstone for them again.

So please think of our family this next coming week. And for those who pray, please do. We could certainly use them.

I am still down with my foot. From what I have learned, this could be a lengthy recovery. I'm still wearing my "fancy shoes" at work, and in extreme pain. I keep on icing, which helps a lot! But, I'm up walking, or hobbling in my case, most of the day, which puts me back to ground zero by evening. There is a silver lining however. The injury has made me very thankful for my ability to walk and dance, and exercise on a normal basis. This is something I often take for granted! The other bonus, is, that as I can't hardly move, exercise is out of the question, so...I am carefully watching what I eat! I needed to do that anyway! So, this just bumped me into doing it!

Have a great rest of the week! emoticon

Sounds like a busy weekend! I rarely get the shopping bug, but when it happens, it's time to just roll with it! Fantastic news that Boss B is maybe becoming human?!
I injured my foot this weekend. No fantastic story, just out enjoying the sunshine, and strained a tendon in the bottom of my foot, near the ball. My foot is very swollen, and oh so painful! I have soaked it in epsom salts, elevated, and hoping to ice tonight. I can't get shoes on yet. I had to wear my tennis shoes to work today. It's the only pair that I could get loose enough to get my foot into. Embarrassing, but I work behind a desk, so mostly people won't be able to see my fancy shoes. emoticon

Well, believe it or not, I had a rather exceptional day even with Boss B "in the house".

SHHH, emoticon I did things the way they should be done"my way" and secured enough ads this week to have a 28 pg paper By Mondy 4 pm deadline I want to have a 32 pager! When I say "my way" I mean the modern way not old school.

And I know many of you will think I'm Bizarre but I've already started collecting things for my trip home to see dad in July. Tomorrow it's off to Red Deer to pick up my second set of glasses and hit Old Navy and Winners and Costco. Yeah, I've kind of got the shopping bug. But buying new clothing pieces is something I rarely do!

As it turns out I talked to my boss about this today put together an email showing him why we did what we did in sending him the invoice under VELLNER LEISURE PRODUCTS and Shocker of shockers, she actually said you know what even though you were right well let him think he was right. Let it go we don't need the frustration of back-and-forth with this client's attitude you don't need the stress. We've given him what he wanted just let him stew He's very old school set in his ways.

You could have blown me over with a feather!

No ice fishing after all. The girlfriend woke up with a severe migraine. So she took a T3 and went back to bed.

Here's how my day went.

Jeez, will this guy ever get off my back!

Yup, he's still harassing me over something. The same client that caused the blow up with Boss B!

Today, it was over a so-called billing error.

He had booked an ad for the Red Deer RV Show Ran last week. In making absolutely certain sure the correct purchase order was on the right invoice my boss had me call him just to reiterate. I had them correct I wish she'd never pushed the matter. Now, because she did he's throwing that up in my face as well as that the invoice was made out to the wrong company. Guess who did the billing out? My Boss.

Now, just last year Dec 13th, 2019 I had been sent billing instructions by his assistant which clearly stated Please change the billing to Vellner Leisure Products for the Red Deer RV Show.
So I had followed those instructions.

I tried to explain this to him once he'd finished his rant and that it was an accounting issue. I book the ads they do the billing out. But he was listening to nothing I had to say He was the client and I'm supposed to look after him. So, I let it go, let him go and the minute I was off the phone I had accounting make out and reissue a new invoice per his instructions he had just given me. But tomorrow that same narcissist is getting an e-mail with the proof and documentation of the instructions I had received and followed Yup He'll have egg on his face. And, next year I'll be damned if I handle his account if he books anything.

Ice fishing sounds fun, but cold! I have never done that before. Usually when my husband fishes it is in the spring and summer, and I get to sit on the dock, or shore in a lawn chair, soaking up the sunshine, and reading a good book. Ice fishing sounds a little more complicated. I'm intrigued.

So, the long weekend for me was one of rest. I did all my errands/chores on Saturday. Sunday and Monday, I took a break. Sunday, I have standing phone date with my daughter who is in New York, so I did that. Then the rest of the weekend, it was no phone, no make up, no hearing aids, no getting dressed. I read, I watched Hulu, and I took naps. It was so needed. I didn't even realize how refreshing that was going to be, or how badly I needed it, until today. I feel as though I went on a very relaxing vacation.

Hope everybody has a good week!

We all hate this fat we've carried, are still carrying, for far too long, period. If you want to know anything, there are two different kinds of fat we carry. Only one, however, is a danger to our health.

Well, it's done. Whew! I started at 7:30 and just finished a half-hour ago Microscopic cleaned the house starting from Walt's office/front entrance to the back entrance/laundry room. That's 7 rooms plus 4 loads of laundry!

And...I ordered this today! This time cats are NOT going to shred my couches!

Hi, hon. I private e-mailed you today.

I'll add you to my contacts! And if you don't want everyone knowing your real-time e-mail I'd take it out now that I have it.

We have Monday off as well but it is Family Day here. And I'm going ice fishing in the afternoon

I just read the article on coffee. And what great ideas! Yes, I'm a true PNW'ner..Start the day with a good cup of coffee for sure! I also sometimes indulge in the afternoon, but I do try to keep it to a cup a day. A big cup, but still.. I use coconut milk and almond milk as my cream. but I love the idea of a square of dark chocolate. What a great addition, and I'm sure gives it a little sweet kick. I'm going to have to try that! I've tried the cinnamon stick, and in fact when I make lentil soup, I cook it with a cinnamon stick. It gives it a little different flavor, but the health benefits are amazing. I also add quite a bit of tumeric in the soup as well. Anyway, that is way off subject!

I am lucky that Don will eat most anything vegetable wise..but he won't eat kale, and he won't eat brussel sprouts. Weird. Kale, I can take or leave, but brussel sprouts done right, they are amazing!

Yes, I would love to hear of your work thing. Email is fine. If you don't want to share don't feel obligated.

Have a lovely Friday! We have Monday off as it is Presidents Day. I'm looking forward to the long weekend. No plans but a good book, and relaxing.

Your hubby sounds like mine LOL
There are things he JUST WON'T eat. However, I have found a way to disguise a lot of things he claims he won't touch with a ten-foot pole. Like mushrooms, spinach, and even kale If I dice everything small enough in a salad Down the hatch it goes LOL

As to work that's a long story. One I will privately e-mail you later OK?

In the meantime...

I don’t know about you, but I love a good cup of coffee to start the day. Sometimes, I even splurge and have one in the afternoon! And yes, it can actually be healthy if you do it right! Here is a fun little article about putting chocolate in your coffee...

First, I love the new couches! The color is amazing! Good for you! and 100 bucks?! That's a steal!

Second, what is the Employment standards board? Is that similar to Labor and Industry here in the U.S. maybe? May I ask what did Boss B do this time? It sounds like things have elevated with her...and frankly that is downright scary!

Lastly, I read your article on Kale. I laughed, as my husband hates Kale. I used to order a farm box to be delivered to our house weekly. He would be home, as he is retired, and would receive the box. Through the week as I was looking to make recipes, I was missing the kale. At first I thought they just forgot to put it in the box. But, I was home once to unpack the box, and I know it was in there! But, sneaky guy that he is, he would throw it out! He told me kale is for decoration, not to eat. He tells people the best way to eat kale is to put it in the oven to get really crispy...just lightly oil the pan, salt if you want. pull it out after a bit, when it's nice and crisp, just a tinge brown even, walk over to the trash can, and slide it in. It's much easier if the pan is lightly oiled. emoticon

Well now, it seems I have been given just cause to take my grievances to the Employment standards board over my Boss B's latest actions. However, it's severely going to rock the boat but I think I've come up with coming at it through a back door so to speak. It's all in the way I present my cause.

My plan is to pose it as a general inquiry with events that took place in the workplace and ask if they are allowable. It'll make them look into it without me having to submit an initial formal complaint. But it is finally time for little miss B"T"" Witch to have consequences to her actions. She's gotten away with far too much for far too long!

ATTA GIRL ME TOO!

It's been a week and we'll leave it at that for the time being.

Yesterday was a very enjoyable day out. I came home with a few clothing pieces a size smaller, that I can wear now.
I bought two matching love seats "New to me" for 100.00 They're being delivered tomorrow and stored over at a friend's until the weekend and I can get the old pieces out.



Today we're of course getting caught up on the few things I didn't get done yesterday before leaving plus I'm going through my closet and dresser and doing some serious pitch and toss and re-organizing.

I'm going to make up my fruit and greens smoothie make hubby his breakfast and then get to it.

Well it is Tuesday already! Monday was okay. The energy was odd at work. We have some shifts and changes happening, and I'm not sure what they all entail. I am just keeping my head down, doing my job, asking no questions.

I'm sad to hear about your office. But you have the right approach. Just work, do the job, and let them deal with that. What a nightmare however...

I woke up Monday and decided, I am ready to start getting serious about my health. I tracked my food, and planned the week, I ate lemon meringue pie after dinner. emoticon But, I tracked it. And my husband had made it from scratch, crust n' all...sooo....I won't have a second piece. I won't have anymore. It was delicious however! I did also go for a quick 20 minute walk before dinner. My walking partner cancelled, so my hubby jumped in and said he would love to go for a walk with me. emoticon

Today, I'm tracking, I'm planning, and it is a rest day. Glad for that, as it's snowing again...I am so ready for spring! emoticon

My Monday...hmmm started out alright and the workday didn't even go all that bad. I kept my space. Boss B kept hers. If she needed to talk to me she actually sent me e-mails LOL

It was the end of the day. Manager all of a sudden had an attitude with items she needed from me that wasn't even due until the month-end. Just pushing because of Boss B? I don't know but I kept a cool head and gave her what she needed. The only thing is she made me look incompetent in front of the Boss. Like I was to blame that I hadn't printed out an Insertion order to attach to the proof for an ad that wasn't running until Feb 27th!

Communication between myself and other staff was kept to a minimum. I didn't speak to anyone unless spoken to or it was work-related.
No more sharing, being social, It just gets used misinterpreted and against me. So, I'm there to work and nothing more.

Tuesday, My morning routine remains the same; fruit and greens smoothie, 20 minutes cardio and apple cider vinegar water done.

Today is "go to press day", so I will be making sure all of my ads are present and accounted for and all pieces of information are correct and then start accumulating ads for next week.
And again will only speak when spoken to or need something work-related. I hate it but they've brought it on themselves.

Good morning, Monday!

Well, who's ready to start another week of being set up for success and meeting goals?

I have my fruit and greens smoothie all set for my morning, 20 minutes of cardio behind me, my Fitbit has already started counting my steps and I've had my first 2 cups of water with apple cider vinegar and will have lemon water throughout the remainder of my day.

What's you're morning looking like?

Good morning!

Saturday, most of the day was spent out on the town with hubby. Doing what I would normally do alone but this time we did it together.

And, I have to say even with the ongoing drama and stress this past week, I had a good night's rest last night and then have over the course of the day, spring cleaned my back entrance/laundry room, did the laundry, cleaned the kitchen, bathroom, took out the recycling and garbage and put together a small stuffed chicken with a honey garlic, ginger glaze now roasting along with baby carrots.

Doing some blogging and posting valuable information for you all while I wait.

And, I also have some very exciting news to share!

You have a great evening as well! Although I just read this Thursday morning, so I'll say..."Have a great day"! emoticon

Yesterday, I was advised of changes coming soonish...This includes learning some more things, and taking on more responsibilities. I am very excited, yet nervous. I am hoping this will fill my day, but not be too much. As while I am taking on this, I am also staying at the front desk. Oh my nerves...Very exciting!

Okay...Busy week! Chat soonish!

Good morning all,

After a very good night's sleep I'm weary but rested. And, yes, I'm already up and have my day started. Today should be a better day. Boss B is done childish temper tantrum and will only be there a part of the day today. Thank God, literally.

There was an issue of an ad that got forgotten. I caught it dealt with it. I had done all protocols with making sure the order was processed and THEY missed putting it into the computer so that it would be accounted for on the run list. So, as protocol, I made sure production knew about it, handwrote it on the production run and as soon as Boss B came in I let her know. She blew a gasket. It should have been caught when we initially did up the run check and BLAST, BLAST, BLAST.
IT'S YOUR CLIENT HOW DID YO MISS IT! Then she demanded to see my computer. Where was the order How was it completed Where was it filed Blah, blah, blah. She wouldn't even give me some breathing room to show her. I said I didn't miss it Accounting missed entering it into the computer. I had it accounted for! Oh, that wasn't good enough. 'You've been doing this job for 8-9 years yak, yak, yak and on and on and on she went. I finally shut her out and went on with what I had to do for my Tuesday. I shut myself off and didn't say two words to her all day, the rest of the day. It was like a tomb. I didn't care. And that was my yesterday. SIGH.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

I wish I could say it had been a fantastic Tuesday. It was rough and rocky. A day from hell in fact.

I'm home now. Refuge at last. I'm mentally and emotionally exhausted. I've had my dinner so now I'm calling it a day. Grabbing a good book and read awhile.

Good Morning! What a difference diet and exercise make?! Good for you! It makes me laugh when I picture you buzzing around all day...never a moment to sit and relax! emoticon You are an inspiration!

My kids left back to New York for school. It was bitter sweet, as I miss them terribly when they are gone, but I was so ready to have my home and life back to normal. As I'm sure they were ready to. The energy shift in the house was crazy. It took a couple of days to get back to our "normal". But it's back. And it's back to the hectic life as usual! Every night we have had something to do. It's mostly been fun stuff...i.e. The Sound Of Music sing along...That was so much fun! Next year we plan on dressing in costume! And, I have gotten right back to exercising. It's a slow start, as it's amazing how quickly a person loses their stamina after taking a small hiatus! Who knew!

Have a fantastic Tuesday! And thank you so much for sharing in the Inspiration thread. Love it! emoticon

Good morning!

I am feeling so on top of my game! Since tweaking my diet and increasing my exercise/steps etc. my energy levels are through the roof.
You all know what I'm normally like right well..... yeah double that!

My sister who lives in Manitoba has been a huge influence with the changes I have made. I won't go into detail because there's far too much to tell. Instead, keep a very close eye on your Motivation and Insight thread!

Anybody looking for me? LOL

If anybody's wondering about the snowstorms in Canada...No, no snowstorms here. That's in Newfoundland and New Brunswick. It's my sister that's getting dumped on! We're having our "January Thaw" The temperatures have warmed up and we're melting!

I've just been very busy today. I started at 5 am this morning and started at one end of the house and went room to room dusting, sweeping and scrubbing. I pulled everything out of each room and micro-cleaned today, plus did up the laundry and helped Walt put in the new office light fixture and front outside yard light. I even got 9 cats brushed and bathed and 3 puppies groomed and brushed.

I told ya'all I'm back! I'm burning up those calories! I put in almost my 10,000 steps today. doing what I did! I still need to do things like scrub the stove but I need to get myself some easy off. So it'll have to wait.
I'm just winding down my day and I've still got energy!. I had a good supper; roast garlic and parmesan chicken with baked potato and carrots.

So, that's been my Saturday!

Oh, what a day both successful and frustrating and I even took my St John's wort of 3000 units to try and keep me calm.

But I'm still pumped because I'm setting things up already for my trip home. Did a little clothes shopping and found myself a couple of really cute tops and a denim skirt. They'll definitely be here on time LOL

And I'm finally in my groove! If everything goes as planned when I step off that plane they're all going to do double-takes! LOL

Yes, the freezer finally gave it up and now we have had temperatures of plus 2 and everything is melting!

I'm tired today up since 4 and it's been a long day. I'm actually sitting here fighting sleep So on that note I say goodnight and am heading for the pillow.

Fantastic! I will look forward to hearing about your trip this summer! Now to get through the winter!

We have had snow all week. The entire town nearly shuts down, which is fine, nobody can really go anywhere anyhow. I, being at a new job, asked early December what snow protocol was. I was told, it's business as usual. So, all week I have shown up at my job, 5-10 minutes early, so I am ready when the business opens the doors. NOBODY else has been here. Many, not showing up at all, a handful showing up for partial days, and part time hours. Today, I am 10 minutes away from work, when the boss sends out a mass text saying he is cancelling the a.m. meeting, as staff keep calling in and saying they can't make it. Perfect, and I know I'm being catty, but, 15 minutes before the meeting is to begin???? REALLY??? How about when the first group text goes out, which it does EVERY MORNING, at 7 a.m. That would be a great time to make that kind of call. I'm frustrated. But, As we have Monday, off, our next meeting will be Wednesday, and I am prepared to bring up this issue at that meeting. And, given that I will have days before, my anger will have subsided, and I can address it as an adult. Whew. Rant over!

Have a great weekend!

Good Morning! Happy Monday! I had a very relaxing weekend. It was truly just what I needed. I read quite a bit, did some housework, chatted with friends...truly lovely. Sunday, the weather took a turn, and we got snow, ice, and crazy winds. My son in law drives snow plow, so he left for work at 3 in the afternoon Sunday, to head to Seattle to start plowing and salting/sanding. He was not home yet when I left for work this morning at 8. Long night! Just a handful of us at work this morning. Actually, one grounds crew, one funeral director, one family service counselor, and myself. The other two locations are also staffed very minimally. Depending on where one lives, reflects on how safe it is to travel in to work! Luckily, no funerals scheduled today, so that's a bonus!

The emergency shelters open tonight. So my daughter will be gone working at one of those tonight. It is so bitter cold with that wind! EEK. I'm blessed to be indoors with heat!

Okay, off to get some work going! Have a beautiful Monday!

Good morning all!

I hope you've had not a too rough a week and that your weekend will be a relaxing and enjoyable one.

My week wasn't without its bad experiences but overall I made it the best one I could under the circumstances.
Headed into the weekend, of course, I'll be catching up on everything, my chores, laundry and writing.
I'm already at it with laundry and scrubbing. Walt's going to be rearranging and organizing his office today with the change out of his new gaming computer and gadgets.
That's pretty much our day today.

What's everyone else got going on?

It'll come hon. I think you're right once your company has left you'll feel like doing for yourself again.

A better day today. She was concentrating on transcribing her recording from a meeting into the news. So she was preoccupied with the better part of the day! So without any interruptions or hinderances, I actually got far more accomplished. I can actually go into my weekend and enjoy it without crying myself to sleep.

Walt's brand new gaming computer arrived yesterday so he'll be busy setting that up while I get my Saturday cleaning and laundry caught up!

So tonight I'm going to have my dinner put away a few things that need doing and go crash with hubby!

Wow! Unbelievable! Well, I believe you...it's her actions that are just so unbelievable! How does she live with herself? I'm not sure how you get up the gumption to show up at your job each day. I don't think I would have it in me!? You have shown time and again how capable you are. What the heck is this ladies problem? Today is Friday...I hope she gets a flat tire on the way to work and can't make it in...for your sake. I'm truly sorry you are having to deal with all this!

Here is okay. We are a little slow right now, so I struggle with trying to find something to fill my day. I truly like to be busy. That's one of the reasons I came here, and even told them when interviewing that, I loved my current job, but there just wasn't enough to keep me busy. I need a busy day. So, he promised me, that they had a million projects going on, and future projects, and no way would I find myself lacking for something to do. Wulp, here I am...asking around to anybody who walks by if they need help, can I do something? Nope, they have nothing either. In fact, most of them are leaving early in the day, as they can't find anything to do. I can't really leave early, as I work at the front desk, and need to be the last one out the door. As well as I need the hours at work. I don't have much paid time off yet. It's a noticeable slow down, as they keep talking about how it will pick up. So there's that.

I still haven't gotten out of my mindset where I don't feel like doing much after work. I haven't walked, met up with my friends, etc, since before Christmas. I'm just not in the mood. I'm not sad, or mad, or anything...just don't feel like going out and doing stuff. My daughter and her boyfriend are still here for the next couple of weeks, so I'm hoping that once they are back to New York, I will feel like life is back to normal. I love having them here, but I can tell, they are kind of spinning their wheels here as well...just no routine for anybody. And the weather is cold. Which we are not used to. Well they are, but I'm not. We have had crazy wind, flooding rains, and now we are set for snow. Good grief...I like being spoiled with 50 and partially sunny most days.

Happy Friday! Chat soon!

Just another day I'd like to forget

I won't go into any great detail but to say I'm just so weary, so tired of the stress my employer puts me under on top of the pressure I'm already under to meet or surpass previous goals. I do it almost every week but it just never seems to be enough for her.
Every day I go into work with a mixed feeling of good expectations and dread of her scrutiny and criticisms.
She's always on me about making sales calls. FINALLY, I said to her. The reason you don't hear me on the phone making sales calls is that every time I do you're in the background telling me what to say and how to say it. you don't think the client doesn't hear that. They do and it makes me look incompetent.
Her reaction?
Then you'll just have to become competent, won't you.
I just turned and walked away.
Talk about blow your mind She just doesn't get it. It went right over her head!

Yeah and the RCMP actually called me last night to update me on the situation.

It's been a whirlwind morning! Up at the crack of dawn, animals all looked after, a load of laundry done, the house tidied and the garbage and recycling all taken out to go to the curb tonight.

Now I'm headed for the office to put a paper to bed and start selling ads for next week's paper!

TFN!

What an exciting drive! I'm glad you, him, and other drivers were all safe. It's hard when a person gets old, and they either don't realize how bad off they are, or it would be so life changing that they just go on doing what they do. Either option is not a good choice. Thankfully this story ended well for all involved.

Our New Years Day was relaxing. It's my youngest daughter's birthday, so we traditionally go out to breakfast with the family. (which we did). Then we hung out and played games. The kids all went to the movies. They saw Mr. Rogers. Which they enjoyed. I really want to see that one as well. But, I don't go to the movies, as I'm hearing impaired, and honestly the movie is so loud that I can't understand a word that is being said. I will wait for it to come out on DVD or Netflix.

Sunday was my oldest daughters birthday, so we ate cake, and bowled. I haven't bowled in years. I have one finger that hurts, and a couple of other odd muscles (as in my butt muscles) are a little sore. I must have been doing some fancy moves! emoticon

Have a lovely Monday! Chat soon!

A very different day yesterday.
On the way home from Red Deer last night after just leaving Stettler we encountered a driver that for all intents and purposes seemed impaired. He was all over the highway and his speeds ranged anywhere between 60 - 120 Kms! He almost hit the ditch numerous times. We were so nervous that he was going to hit an oncoming car!

So I put in the call to 911 and reported it giving them the make of the truck colour and license plate. I made at least three other calls with updates The last one let them know that he had pulled off the road and was behind the restaurant just off the highway.

We followed him and literally had to cut him off to make him stop. When he finally did my 6 ft, 4" friend, Leslie stepped out of the car and made a citizens arrest. The RCMP did show up and we gave her our full report and then we were allowed to leave.

Turns out the fella wasn't impaired but he was 81 years old and his eyesight is so poor He shouldn't be night driving!. So they are going to take his license from him send it in for review and possible lose it altogether. Poor fellow but it'll keep others on the road safer.

Good morning all,

Had me a busy New year's day but just at home. Didn't even make a special celebratory dinner. We had homemade pizza.

Then, of course, it was back to work for two days. I did get a lot accomplished for next week's paper.

today we're off to Red Deer for Walter's eye appointment amongst other things.

I, of course, have been up since 4 so that I have all of my Saturday laundry and cleaning done before I leave. Mission accomplished and a hot shower to boot.

Happy New Year Celebrations! emoticon It so does not feel like New Year's Eve today! First off, I'm at work. I'm not sure if we will be able to scoot out early or not. Either way I have a hair appointment at 5, so I'm kind of booked until then. You'd think that appointment was good timing...hair done, out for the night celebrating looking all good. But, no. I'm going out to the bay with my kids to light roadside flares around the bay at 7 pm. And it's rainy and windy! So the hair is going to be a mess no matter what happens! LOL! But the memories with the kids are going to be all worth it! When it's all done, it really is pretty...it's called "the ring of fire". And when you look around the bay, it is just lit up like a red ring. The only opening is where the bay meets Canada. It's a small segment, then picks up again on the US side to make kind of a 3/4 arch. Very cool for this small town! So, then we will run home, get warm, and play some board games! My kind of evening! Everybody be safe! See you in the new year!

emoticon ladies! It's going to be a GREAT start to a new year here!

My energy levels are just flying today! It'll just be Walt and I. but I'll still make our New Years' dinner and have our celebratory glass of wine. In the meantime, Walt has done the outdoor snow blowing and shovelling and I'm tackling the house with a vengeance and I do mean with a vengeance. I'm doing some serious nitty-gritty cleaning pitching tossing scrubbing every corner there is! My house is going to start out with great Karma for 2020 and stay that way.

Wow, that is old school! But hey, if it works, it works right?


Well, I HAD plans of sleeping in a little later, like say 6 am, but my Bagera apparently had other plans. So rather than go back to bed I stayed up and got a few things done before I take off to Red Deer today and get my glasses!
So, I need to slip out and fill the car up and grab a couple of things I forgot at the office when I left last night. That's pretty much going to be my day.

So, we shall see how the day goes and how late I get back. Bestie wants to go see the new Starwars matinee movie too.

So have a great day everyone! Stay on track, stay gold.

I am planning as well! I have a paper planner. I know old school style..but it works for me! I seem to not be lost without my phone ever...but lose my planner and life would be out of control! So, I'm planning my exercise right into my planner, and I track food through the weight watchers app, (although I have been over for a couple of weeks now...), and I have a fitbit that tracks my exercise and steps. Now with all those tools, one would think I have it made in the shade! Not so! I am still struggling. It's a mind game for me. I've got to wrap my mind around this entire thing! I'm getting there! Hope you had a fabulous time on your trip out of town! It makes me think of the theme song for Gilligan's Island...a two hour tour... emoticon

Well now, good morning!

I trust everyone had a lovely and exciting Christmas.

I've been very busy this morning setting myself up for success in 2020. Oh yes! Already on top of it. No procrastinating for this ole' gal!

I've put in all my updated information and started to actually use the food tracker, calorie counter and fitness tracker. If I have my calculations correct I've figured out calories in calories burned per week if my body co-operates I should lose 2-3 pounds a week!

I'm planning a trip home to Ontario at the end of July and I want a substantial amount of fat gone!

Anyway, it's now off to work for the day.

So, let's start setting ourselves up for success now and get geared for the ultimate weight loss year!

See you later!

I hope you are enjoying your day off today! I'm back at it! It was really hard to just have one day off in the middle of the week...I know whine, whine, whine...But really, it was! I'm happy to get back to routine actually. I have just been delving in to whatever is available to snack on at the present time. That habit is bordering on ridiculous and I'm ready to get back to life as normal! Chat soon!

Good Morning and Happy Christmas Eve! I likely won't be on line until Thursday, but wanted to pop in and wish you a happy holiday! We might get snow for Christmas! We haven't had any yet, but the prediction is for tomorrow. That would be kind of fun...picturesque even! Today we get off work at noon. I'm glad for that, as I have friends coming over for game night and ugly pajama night! Nobody gets in unless they are wearing their pj's. It's a pretty fun night! Just need to get home to get ready! Tomorrow we have Christmas breakfast, and send everybody on their merry little way! HO! HO! HO! Have a fabulous Christmas! Chat soon!

No there was no tracking number but I could contact the seller which I did but I haven't heard a word.
And here we are, Christmas Eve, tomorrow!

Glad you're on track!

Well, it's a working evening for me. So I'm going to have to beg off for tonight.


TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.
