Our getaway FUN and relaxing

Came home and checked out the temp condo - the window shades were being installed and

NO we will NOT be moving in 1/2 - seems they had an issue with what they thought was a water leak and one wall in the cellar is TORN out

NOTHING has been DONE - appliances not in NOTHING - needless to say I sent out a text message to the developer, builder and property manager and our son!

Told them well we are NOT moving before we go to Hawaii - we cannot depend on Winter weather and then I said NEXT opportunity 3/1

Colie's sister wants to visit late February / early March and I DO NOT KNOW where we will put them - never mind we still have the sewer issue which PLEASE GOD CONTINUE making it behave! Colie and I are BOTH unhappy about this BUT out of our control

SO I can take moving off my plate for at least 3 months UNLESS we do a rush job after Hawaii and move in right after and I CAN HEAR ALL OF YOU GROANING me too there goes that restful time we had

ANYHOW that is in flux - mind you the mom who started the whole mess at church FB messaged me - did not answering then an email to my regular email account I deactivated the church email on my phone - ANYHOW did not answer till 1 am Thursday morning after talking with my BFF sista - was very nice too but basically said since the whole incident nothing has been the same and the elders have changed how I do things and I am not going to change what they approved BLAH BLAH and thank you for your very kind words (I was an awesome teacher - the kids need me - I am passionate about teaching and the kids get it - THEN WHY did you start the problems)

SO this Sunday is IT - after church during coffee time I will say Merry Christmas to a few people then drive to Bourne to my parents grave and totally DRAIN myself emotionally THEN come home and go to my neighbors house to play with her BOYS - they love my cookies and want MRS Laura to come sing Karaoke with them!

Shopping done

AND BTW Encore has invited me over Saturday for a FREE SPIN actually SIX free spins on a very HIGH LIMIT machine so JUST MAYBE ...

Next week quiet and Zeus arrives Christmas Eve - my birthday for 10 days! THAT is going to be a very calming effect on us

Have a nice day and stay warm

AND I AM STILL under 200 pounds!

Morning all,

Dawn that sounds like an awful night! I can't believe she was offended after obviously seeing you running around crazy! Ridiculous and I'm glad you stood your ground and said no!

Janine - well? How did it go? I'm sure you were awesome!

Sue - hope you are having a fabulous time away!

Elizabeth - where are you?

Laura - are you back from your mini getaway?

Me - GREAT NEWS! They contacted Infectious Disease team and Teddy was given the all clear to come here for Christmas!!! Everyone is thrilled but my niece still plans to have him swabbed this weekend to be extra sure he's ok. He's feeling much better and starting to eat more so all is moving along there!

Last night I went to the grocery store with my list and all my 'sale' items marked and my coupons etc. Yeah...ÖÖ.idiot that I am, the sales don't start till today! So I did still manage to get the bulk of the shopping done and plan to slip out at 12:00 today and finish it up. Then I came home to do some cleaning and wellllll, it just didn't happen. I lit everything up and just sat and enjoyed it all. I was really missing having the village display up when Jessie jumped up on my lap with a big piece of ribbon hanging from her mouth and sort of looked at me like 'don't worry mommy, we can destroy that next year'! HA HA HA.

Ok, I have to get busy here. I realized I have 2 stupid training courses that are due by year end and since I'm off after Tuesday at noon I have to get them done now! UGH, I heard one of them takes like 3 hours...Ö.sigh.

Have a great day everyone - bundle up and stay as warm as you can!

Maryanne

Hey all,

Oh....my....goodness is it cold out there. I mean painfully cold!!! My niece in Enfield, CT said they are going on their 4th snow day already. Theyíll be in school until the middle of July at this rate!!!

Maryanne, I do hope and pray that Teddy is better. Itís not uncommon for them to have to go back to the hospital after discharge. RSV is brutal and HIGHLY contagious. Poor bubba. Poor mom and dad. That is SO stressful.
Good that you got all of your Christmas taken care of. I just have a few finish up items that Iíll take care of tomorrow. Baking tonight and tomorrow after I get home and will hand out cookies and goodies to the neighbors.

Janine, Iím reading these posts well after all the goings on. I hope your meeting went well. Iím sure you dread going to that one school. Mean girls are mean for a reason. Itís just too bad that they end up as teachers etc. They set a very bad example for the kids.

Sue, I hope your car is holding up for now. Enjoy your mini get away. Jon and Kate are in North Conway today with Simon and Ollie. They looked cold!!!!

Laura, busy, busy. I hope it takes your mind off of all of the turmoil at church. Itís heartbreaking really though.

Elizabeth, Iím sure weíll hear from you soon. The holidays are probably just brutal for you. You seem to have a lot of functions to go to.

Work was awful on Tues night. I mean I really didnít know HOW I was going to get everything done. I didnít sit down til after 1am. My feet were throbbing from all of the running without stopping. One of the nurses on my team got a little offended b/c I didnít have time to help her put down an NG tube, (tube that goes in the nose and down to the tummy). I couldnít believe she even asked me to help her with that.....actually she asked ME to put it down FOR her. I was incredulous. I said, ďitís almost 10pm and I STILL havenít done my admission documentation. I canít stop for an NG tubeĒ. There was no reason she couldnít have done it but, some nurses arenít comfortable at all doing it so they always ask those of us who can to do it. But seriously, she saw how hard I was running and she still asked!!! Needless to say the drive home was a struggle. I fell asleep in the driveway with the car running. I donít even remember putting it in park!!! Thatís how tired I was.
Last night was much better. I was so glad to be able to get all of my charting done etc and actually have time to take care of my pts.
Iím off tonight and tomorrow night and then on the weekend. I told someone at work that I think theyíre trying to kill me. They laughed at first and then said, ďoh...wait, youíre serious arenít you?Ē. Yup.

Ok, going to go get stuff done. I hope everyone stays warm tonight. When does it warm up again....?

Dawn

Afternoon all,

Janine - YOU GOT THIS!!!! You walk right in there with that confident attitude because you are there to do YOUR JOB and it's a job you do VERY WELL! As you look at the envision me sitting on your shoulder giving then my 'you're all toast' death stare!!!!

Sue - have a fabulous time away!!!

Still lots going on here. Waiting to hear an update on Teddy - no response so hoping he's getting discharged. They're all exhausted and my niece is very emotional/weepy over it all....They will do swab him over the weekend to still see if he's testing positive and if he is they will stay home. So we wait and see.

As for me - I'm allllll done. Shopping, wrapping, ribbon on all packages - done done done. Tonight I will hit Stop and Shop and Star Market for my deals and then come home and finish the cleaning - I've actually never been so excited to vacuum as I am right now! UGH, what a mess. And with everything going on I forgot that Lyndsey is coming home tomorrow night so that's exciting. I haven't seen her in like 8 months.

Brrrrrr, it's quite cold out there today! Hope everyone is staying warm.

Have a good day all and please add Teddy to your prayers that his test comes back negative!

Maryanne

Sue...that certainly sounds like an interesting case. Glad you were not there for days.

Maryanne....sending prayers for Teddy again! Poor little guy. If you need more wrapping to do, I haven't done much myself. I would love your help!

Laura...you need to remember you don't own anyone an apology or explanation for your decisions! Self-care is such an important component of being healthy. Enjoy all your indulgences.

Tomorrow I have a meeting back at the school that I had so many problems with previously. It has shaken me some, but the fact is that I am very good at what I do. I am grateful for the reminders of this each day as I support close to 200 students and their families. A few mean girls are not going to get to me! I will walk in there tomorrow sure of myself and determined to do the job I always do for my students. Please keep me in your positive thoughts tomorrow at 2 as I chair that meeting.

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

- It's Janine!

Morning all,

Still waiting for the morning update to see how Teddy is feeling...ÖÖ Praying he's better.

So last night I came home in pouring rain and saw that the snow plows had put all this crap in front of the driveways I had all clean. I just didn't have it in me to go out in the pouring rain to clean up so now today I need to get out there and see if I can move the stuff. Hoping my noon time it won't be frozen.

Wrapped till almost 11 last night and was back up at 5:30 wrapping. I need to go out tonight to get a couple of gift bags for odd shaped things and like 2 boxes and I'll be done. Then tomorrow night I'll just sit and do ribbons on all the boxes as I watch a nice holiday movie.

Hope you all have a good day.

Maryanne

ūüė• my little Teddy is back in the hospital. Was doing great this morning and then breathing difficulties. His oxygen was back around 85. He has RSV? Respiratory virus? Christening is canceled again and at this point we're not even sure they can come here for Christmas. My niece will need to have him checked again next week because if he still has this virus he can't be near Annabel or my pregnant niece. In addition, he can't be near my brother. Oh what a mess a d my heart breaks thinking of him being sick.....poor little guy. Just praying he finally gets well and fast.

I did part of the shoveling a little while ago - yeah it's nasty out there. The rest is just going to have to wait till tomorrow morning because I decided to keep my hair appointment. It's not till 4:45 and I plan to leave here at 3:30 to allow myself double the time to get there. The only other time available is Christmas Eve and that cannot happen! Teddy's christening has been confirmed for 2:00 on Saturday in Stamford CT so I will leave here around 9:30 and head there...ÖÖ..just need to stop whining about it and accept that I'm going to lose a full day during a major crunch time. I also emailed my friend about Sunday and told her that it's just not going to be possible. It's a winter festival of some sort in Quincy MA from 12-5 with all sorts of vendors and whatnot. Just can't do it. IF something changes then great but I didn't want to wait till Sunday morning to cancel on her. Oh well - there's only so much I can handle and that is just not a priority right now.

BE CAREFUL out there! I dread it but will go very slow...Ö..

Hey all,

What a sloppy, slushy mess we have here in Plymouth. Honestly, I am not looking forward to the mess we are going to have to deal with when this all freezes over. Itís going to be gross.

Thank you all for the condolences. I am sad over it. Donald was a wonderful person. He was just so kind and so faithful in the church. He was well loved by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. His family is understandably devastated at the loss. Itís just a really hard time of year to lose someone. I feel so bad for all of them.

Sue, gosh, I hope the computer doesnít give up the ghost on the rest of the stuff in the car. Goodness! Please be safe while out there driving.

Laura, Iím so sorry you and Colie are having to leave the church you have loved and served for so long. Iím sure itís the saddest thing for you and this is a terrible time to have to leave. Just terrible. I canít fathom teaching a child to be SO disrespectful to someone older like that. Itís disgusting behavior and Iím very much afraid weíll be seeing much more of that kind of thinking from this generation coming up. They think the world revolves around them and their parents encourage it. Good that you are getting away for a bit. I hope the warm sunshine in HI is the best medicine for you both.

Maryanne, thatís awesome news about Teddy being so much better and even smiling!!! So happy to hear it.
I wouldnít go out and get my hair done in this weather. For sure. If you do please be very careful driving out there.

Elizabeth, I hope all is well for you right now. Busy, busy.

I am back to work tonight and tomorrow night. There was some kind of situation going on there that I will get filled in on when I go in tonight. There was a lot of discussion on our closed group on FB. I donít know what happened but it doesnít sound good. I really hate feeling anxious before I go to work. Iím a senior there and I end up with a lot of really complicated cases lately. While I love to be challenged a little I donít enjoy having to do the impossible for 12 hrs each and every time I go in. I just need to get thru the holidays. I have a few days off mid Jan and I can try to reboot then. Hoping Bobby will be homing in on a new job by then. Would really love to be able to get out of critical care if I can.

Ok, Iím going to go do some laundry and getting stuff ready for work. I hope everyone stays warm and dry.

Dawn

Sue....I hope you get sent home early! Drive carefully in this weather.

Maryanne...make sure to take care of your back when you shovel. So happy Teddy is smiling for people!

Laura...such nonsense for sure! Shameful on the parents to raise a boy to treat people so horribly. We left the church years ago after an incident with our son. The Sunday School teacher was showing a movie about Hollywood and Christian values. There was conversation about homosexuality and my son commented about how all people have rights. The teacher remarked "What rights?". My son responded scripture saying "Let he without sin be the first to cast a stone". It was so inspiring for him to stand his ground and show the values we have raised him with. It was after this that I did not want to force them to be surrounded by such narrow minded people.

Snow day today. I am going to get some breakfast with my daughter. Stay safe all.

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

- It's Janine!

Morning all,

Sue - UGH on the car and PLEASE be careful driving out there! Fingers crossed they dismiss you fast.

Laura - very sad indeed - Running around spreading rumors, telling false tales and eavesdropping - the stage is being set for the type of person that young man will be when he grows up. So sad but walk away - you have given your heart and soul to that church and it will be a shame when all these programs fall apart or completely disappear. Those older children are already getting a hard dose of reality on how the world works.... ONWARD AND UPWARD for you! Make your plans, enjoy the dog, pack your bags and live life to the fullest!

Dawn - I'm so very sorry for your loss. Not happy with your schedule lately? on / off / on....doesn't seem like you are getting a good break in between and this is such a brutal time of year for your job...Ö.. make sure you are getting plenty of rest.

Janine - are you guys home again today? Has the dog walker started yet? Fingers crossed it goes well and Elvis likes her/him.

Elizabeth - how are things going?

YAY - Teddy is home and my niece sent a picture of him with a big smile on his face! She said he was so happy to be in his own house and he's just feeling so much better!

It just started here and I am praying it doesn't get too bad. I will have lots of shoveling ahead of me if it does but this morning they are saying 2-4 and we should be on the lower side of that number. I have a hair appointment at 4:45 but concerned about the talk of ice later on today...ÖÖ Will need to keep a close eye on things and may call and reschedule - problem is, no time to reschedule this week is so crazy. Had dinner out again last night and did NOT sleep well. It's just too much going out these last few days and my stomach is telling me enough is enough. Got home early thou and wrapped a few more items. This morning I wrapped and bundled up a package going to PA so need to slip to the post office sometime today (weather permitting). Still lots to get done here but plugging away.

Ok, if you have to be out there today BE CAREFUL! Have a good day all.

Maryanne

We are currently residing in the Vice presidential suite at the Renaissance on the waterfront

Home away from home. Enjoying our downtime

Sunday at church during Bible study that one 6th grader (family started some of the issues months back) Blurted our Laura’s not teaching anymore and I had 4 students I hadn’t told. So since I KNOW the 3 people I have told and CAN TRUST and the student was NOT informed I asked him HOW HE KNEW? Thinking maybe the head of the Christian Ed board sent a letter out to the board - his mom is NEW on the board - so he wouldn’t say and I told him - you will nrver be trusted if you blurt our things or challenge people people especially like me - he called me a liar to the class when I said I had flown over a volcano - challenged me and said I wasn’t a millionaire - I nrver told him I was but the older teens asked me how it dent selling the houses and getting ready to design the new condos

So after class I asked my older students/mature ones to remain and someone caught him trying to eavesdrop .. not to be trusted we see

Anyhow my three most mature students got the TRUTH!! Told them everything - funny thing happened one was their comment that whoever it was didn‚Äôt u sets tabs how they think, feel and understand ‚Äúcorporate service‚ÄĚ in church when they are there till the sermon THEN SERVE GOD by helping teach and next comment ‚Äúwe have nothing but respect for you because you understand us and are standing your ground!‚ÄĚ How could they change everything you have done for over the last 10 years?

Sooo this Sunday is my last class for them and jr church and big lessons such as we are donating almost $1500 in items for the homeless to our clothing room and of our special Christmas presentation to the younger kids.

When colie and I go to our car - we are leaving the church! Meaning we are leaving!!

Going to see the updates on our temporary condo Thursday

Zeus arrives for 10 days on my birthday Christmas Eve

Having a houseful spend the night new years eve

Hawaii is 1/24 to 2/10

And my mind even in Benadryl won’t rest!!
Sigh

Sue...I hope your car situation gets fixed soon.

I'm having one of those days where no matter what is in my plan somehow it's going to change. I'm trying to go with the flow but it can be hard to get it all in. And someone brought cookies and chocolate into the office. I'm going to be weak I'm sure given I'm not always able to handle change well. Fingers crossed.

Maryanne..... so glad to hear about Teddy!

Hey all,

What a crazy, busy weekend I had. It was go, go, go allllll weekend. Thankfully I have today off. Back at it tomorrow and Wed. Just have a few more very small things to do to finish up my shopping. I hope I have remembered everything.

Maryanne, I am relieved to hear that Teddy is doing better. To think that just 50 years ago or so these kids died from that sort of thing. Now with nebulizerís and steroids they get better so much more quickly. Letís hope he stays out of the woods and they can all enjoy the holidays.
I hear you on the shoveling. Worse than that though, I have to drive into Weymouth in that mess. Definitely not looking forward to that at all.

Sue, whatís wrong with your car? Thatís a pain considering how much driving you do. Hope you can get it fixed without spending an arm and a leg.

Hoping everyone else had a nice weekend and are doing ok.

A good friend of ours from NC just died this morning around 6am. He was in his early 60ís and had glioblastoma, a brain cancer. He was diagnosed a little over 6 mos ago. I just canít imagine Debbie without Donald and Iím really worried about her. They have been married just a little over 40 yrs. Just the absolute worst time of year to lose someone you love so much. My heart is breaking for her. For those of you who pray, could you please pray for Debbie Jones and their daughter April.
On the weird news front, my sister texted me Sat while we were at the Phil watching the Christmas show. She told me that my Uncle Louie and my Auntie Diane got married!!! Auntie Diane was my uncle Philís wife and Uncle Louie is his brother and my dadís brother. Uncle Louie lost his wife, Auntie Cathy, last year. I am having a REALLY hard time trying to fathom this. Itís almost impossible to imagine. I NEVER in a million years thought that Auntie Diane would EVER marry anyone else. She and Uncle Phil were next to inseparable. They were one of those couples that rarely fought and he treated her like a princess! I am speechless. Seriously.

Ok, thatís enough from this front. I have to get out to the grocery store and Petsmart, again!!! Hoping I hear about Bizís house sign soon. Weíre getting close to the finish line.

I hope you all have a really nice start to your week and that the snow isnít too bad where you are.

Dawn

Morning all

Teddy is feeling much better and hopefully he DID or WILL be going home today. No idea if his baptism will still be this upcoming Saturday. She's waiting to see how things go.

Meanwhile, I have finished my Christmas shopping and about 40% wrapped. Had lunch with my friend David/Maureen yesterday and OMG it was SO nice. Then I ran to Walmart and printed off some pictures - did ornaments for my sister in law's and Karen with the grandkid picture in the. Tonight I'm having dinner with a friend from high school as well as a friend from my childhood days. Should be fun. Then it sounds like we have a icky mess heading our way for later tonight and tomorrow. Oh joy...Ö...I look forward to the shoveling.

Have a good day all. Sad to be back at work.

Good Morning,

Here I am back up again and ready to start another day...Ö..waiting till a decent hour to call my niece and check in on Teddy. Praying the little guy is feeling better this morning.

Going to spend an hour organizing some more gifts to be wrapped and double check my list. Plans are to meet Aggie around 9:30 and pick up the meat for Christmas dinner (doing a tenderloin) and I have to pick up stuff to make meatballs/sauce for a family get together the day after Christmas at my brother's house. Then going to zip to Legacy Place in Dedham to get the jeans for my godson. Meeting friends at 1:00 for lunch which will be a few hours. Then tonight I hope to get more wrapping done. I see the ribbon chewed on the ends of several packages so looks like the girls had a party here last night after I went to bed. Oh well...Ö...that's their contribution to the gift wrapping!

Have a great day all.

Janine looks like you had a good time last night at the game!

Hey all

Been crazy busy but productive. Shopping done except for a pair of jeans I have to get for my godson. Wrapping underway and I've spent the past few hours chasing the cats taking ribbon away from them. Jessie actually grabbed it and ran.....dragging it all through the house unraveling the roll as she ran. So wish I recorded it.

Bad news....Teddy is in the hospital. His baptism was supposed to be today but canceled. He had croup that went to bronchitis/infection and then an ear infection. Oxygen levels down and dehydrated. The poor little guy. My heart breaks he's so miserable. ūüė• he's doing better and they said maybe he can go home tomorrow. My niece and her husband are complete wrecks.... so hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Ok I have to clean up this mess. Tomorrow is another day.

Maryanne

I got my work done, had lunch at work with friends, and then came home. The dog walker is good to go for next week and I am happy to have Elvis have a friend during the week. It will help give him the exercise he loves so that maybe when I get home he will be settled more.

Sue...I hope yo are able to handle the limited staffing situation. Don't forget to take time for yourself!

Morning all

Laura - my heart breaks that you were basically forced into making the decision regarding the church. I know it's tearing you and Colie up but you need to do what is best for you. So from everything I am seeing it appears you are heading back to Hawaii?? When it that? Fingers crossed everything will fall into place for the condo because you'll be moving in the blink of an eye!

Dawn - praying this weekend won't be too brutal at work. I'm so sorry to hear that the boys are at odds over everything going on with the move. Hopefully they will settle things between them very soon.

Janine - bummer you have to work for a few hours this morning but at least if you can leave early and get the afternoon to yourself...ÖÖ. I agree about the dog walker - whatever you need to do for peace of mind.

Elizabeth - sounds like you're going to have a busy Christmas but hopefully a nice relaxing one. With all the work activities you have to deal with you could use some down time

Sue - I've been meaning to ask - how is your mouth doing? Have you been able to eat anything beyond 'soft'? Dare I ask, what's your upcoming work schedule look like?

Me - had a wonderful day yesterday and I just HAVE to share the message my godson Kenny posted:

The role of a Godmother is not something one is forced to accept or act upon. That being said i would like to wish a Happy Birthday to the most amazing Godmother / Aunty Nana this planet has ever known! Not a day goes by that Jacob and I aren't counting our lucky stars that u not only accepted that role, but chose to EXCEL at it! The love and support u provide is immeasurable. I hope ur day is as amazing as u are! We both love u very much!

Just makes my heart sing!

Off again today and heading out shopping. Have a great day all.

Maryanne

So I wasn't able to get everything I needed to get done done at work, but will take a half day tomorrow. Given that I have worked 5 extra hours in the last 2 days, I don't even need to take it as a sick or personal day. I have also decided to hire a dog walker for the days I am trying to work and Mario is busy. I need to have time to work and if he cannot be the person to take care of Elvis, I will hire someone. It has to be done.

Laura...your house designs sound wonderful! I hope you get that office too.

Dawn...that sounds nice about the symphony. Sorry about the boys being at odds with each other. I hope that gets ironed out. Life is too short and family is too important.

Ok, wow, where to begin here?

Laura, no wonder you canít sleep. You have SO much going on over there. Yoikes. That is awful that you and Colie are having to make the decision to leave the church you have served for so many years. Hoping and praying that you find the right fit for you.
So, this new condo youíre moving to next month is just temporary right? Then you have to move again? Ugh. Thatís a lot of moving. New church, new bank, new house. Wow.

Maryanne, those were great suggestions for the yankee swap for Elizabeth. Youíre really good at that.
Hope you can find a home for that t.v stand soon so you arenít saddled with it for a long time.
Is it your birthday? Yay, happy birthday to you.

Elizabeth, your post made my head spin. If you think you canít keep up with me I think you are seriously nuts. Your schedule is insane!!! I donít know how in the world you fit all of that in in one weekend!!!

Sue, thatís a lot of driving in this weather. Yoikes. Plus, people are driving crazy right now. Theyíre frantic and panicked over their Christmas shopping, which is another reason I like to get it done early. Stay safe. I know itís got to get to you sometimes. Hopefully your time at home is peaceful for you.

Working tonight and tomorrow. Sat is Simonís birthday party and then we go to the Christmas symphony at the Phil in Plymouth. They always put on a wonderfully uplifting program. Biz and Bif will be going with us and weíll be grabbing dinner out before we go. Ya, that should be very interesting trying to fit all of that in.
Sunday is just Sunday. Church. Then weíll probably pop over to see Rob and Jess and the kids if they donít show up to Simonís party. Rob and Jon have been on tense terms since Rob was a little verbally inappropriate to Jon when Jon told him about his move to WI. They really havenít been speaking at all and it breaks my heart b/c theyíre really very close and always have been. Rob is really upset about this impending move and should have kept his mouth shut but, he couldnít and he hurt Jonís feelings very badly. I have to stay out of it and let them sort it out but itís bothering me.
Anywho, I donít know why Iím unloading all of that on you guys. Sorry.
Down another lb today. I donít know how or why. I think Iíve been running around a lot and probably not eating as much. Iím one lb away from my original goal. I might consider taking another 5lbs off if my body will co-operate. Weíll see how I feel. Iím not pushing it. Iím fine just like this. Size 8ís are nice and comfy. Not too loose and certainly not tight at all. I think thatís good enough if I stay right there.

I hope everyone has a nice next couple of days and you all stay warm. I see a warm up for Sunday. Thatíll be a nice break from all of this cold.

Dawn

HI everyone

Thgius past week hard - I did posts on FB all the events we did with my Dad for the 75th a niversary of Pearl Harbor - loved the videos where we was talking!! Hearing his voice was nice.

Not sleeping well - it is like my body has a 3 AM wake up alarm UGH or if I dont go to bed early I am still wide awake at 3 am. Resorted to Benadryl the other night I was so dang tired

Lots on my mind and of course I told 4 of my teens Sunday I was leaving the church entirely. They cried! Since I was told "you better be careful what you tell the teens about your not teaching (bet that person would never think I would LEAVE) I explained it like a divorce with irreconcilable differences BUT those 4 are so astute they read between the lines and said SOMEONE said something about what you do and what we teens do and I said look I LOVE YOU GUYS and let's get through Junior Church. Then after Junior Church one of the teens wa teary eyes and she said "WELL you certainly are an exap=mple of our Bible study lesson today - and I said on Proverbs - she said NO on our Darkness and Light in our class. YOUR LIGHT shines through the darkness of whatever was said to you and the reason you are leaving! NOW that made ME CRY

Sent a long email to the Mom who is involved with our class - have not heard back from her I think she is busy digesting it all. Called my Grandmother of two who was actually present the day that woman had the hissy fit over me turning away the kids without the RSVP - she is devastated and said to me I DO NOT KNOW HOW YOU COULD CONTINUE HERE with all of this - and I did not have the heart to tell her we will be leaving - Colie and I have our plan in place and that is it. so sad

Not sure what the story is with moving - sure would like to be on CONTROL of some part of my life here!! Sewer pipe debate do they fix it and I said AHEM aren't we suppose to move 1/2 - we haven't even booked the movers - the window shades are in from three days blind they need to be installed - turned that over to the property manager of the condo we are moving to.

Christmas for us - scratch tickets in the stockings -

LOTS of baking done for those who are not on FB I have been posting almost daily

Working at getting things transferred from one bak to another - once I close out my Dad's account in April and make final distributions we are leaving Bank of America. Going to keep everyth9ing at Fidelity BUT it is so strange because they dont have a bank - I can do mobile deposits with checks but for cash I use any ATM with a limit of $1,000 a day - got to figure out how to get a large sum I have a checkbook who cashes the check - AHHHH still trying to figure this all out

In the meantime WE HAVE BOOKED OUR FIRST TOUR FOR HAWAII

and we saw the new plans and worked with our architect last night and NOW I need to email him I woke up at 3 AM and said HEY WEHERE IS MY OFFICE on those plans. and I loved it when they put an island in with seats and I said UH NO - I have a dining room and he said most people have done away with them and I said LOOK UP - what would you do with that china and those treasures? As it is we are still trying to figure out if we can put our entertainment center that also is like a china cabinet in

BUT BUT BUT I have a fabulous bedroom in the back of the house AND BIGGIE and what Colie and I wanted the most ....... A triple front window with side lights and we BOTH can have our rockers and my Mom'st ea table in that window

AND YES ALL MY KITCHEN is FABULOUS

SOO despite dealing with my grief over Dad, now dealing with grief over losing seeing my teens/kids every week there is JOY and my light as my sweet kids said is swinging in the darkness.

Morning all

Crazy night putting the stand together. We got it done but it took till 11:00 - then we had to move some of the furniture around...Ö.after that I sent Karen home knowing she had to work this morning. I still have a giant box in my living room with the old one and now need to find a home for it. Waiting to hear back from the company because I have another option. I totally forgot Blessed Sacrament Color Guard where I marched years ago. They do a benefit to help raise money for the kids to get their uniforms etc. So hoping this place more or less tells me donate to my choice...Ö...meanwhile - I have to pick up some heavy duty tape and get this box on my porch till I can get rid of it.

Elizabeth - Yankee candle? Battery operated candle set? make a little gift basket with scratch tickets (but that's bad if they win a lot of money - then you'll be mad you didn't keep the tickets). ha ha ha...ÖÖ. hmmmm coffee or tea basket with different flavors? bet you can find a nice pair of 'cheaper' leather gloves?

Sue - wow - sounds like you've been on the run for sure! I really hope they hire some more people so you can catch even a small break.

Dawn - I seriously don't know how you do it. So have you received your Christmas schedule yet? Will you get any time off? At least you started early and got most of your shopping taken care of. I have GOT to somehow finish up mine either this afternoon or tomorrow. Trying to get the house cleaned up so I can start the wrapping maybe later on tonight? UGH - so much to do and now LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AWAY!

Janine - really hoping you've organized enough and can take tomorrow off!

Laura - how goes it there? WHat's going on - we haven't heard from you?

Ok, lots to do and not much time to do it. Have a great day all.

Maryanne

Hi all,

I noticed that somehow I messed up my post over the weekend - ie. it never made it. Sorry about that.

Sue - hope your driving wasn't too bad. I really want to try that berry blitzen drink. I like sweet sugary drinks.

Janine - so awesome that you have Friday off. And sounds like you had an awesome if not tiring Sunday.

Maryanne - and it looks like you have two days off. I so need a day off but not sure how it is going to come about. We are closed from Christmas to New Year's but we will be at my Dad's. That will actually be pretty relaxing but I probably won't get caught up and I will certainly eat a lot. That is so awesome that the tv stand arrived. And boy are you an amazing neighbor doing all the shoveling. I must admit that I love that I don't have to shovel. Of course if it snows over Christmas I may have to.

Dawn - so sorry that your husband doesn't get it with your sleep. I am amazed how you get by with so little. You are so organized for the holidays.

It has been a whirlwind few days. Had conference calls two days in a row over the weekend for Junior League. Added in brunch with friends Sunday morning and then we went to Belmont and then Ashland to celebrate Mike's Dad 86th bday. We wanted to see my Dad as well but ran out of time.

Then Monday night I had a meeting and then last night an event for Smith with very few attendees due to bad weather. Oh well. The hard part is that my co-chair and I are trying to delegate to newer members of our committee but they need a lot of hand holding. It would have been faster to do it ourselves but we are trying,

Today with the snowstorm was presentations for the Engineering Excellence Awards. I was at work by 7:15 and all the judges and the presenters did show up. Followed that by a 2 hour meeting. By the end of all that I was spent. So I am here trying to work but I am just burnt out. We have a party on Sunday and need to figure out what else I need. Any ideas for the Yankee Swap. Need $20-$25 gift. (Actually three of them)

Okay back to work!

Hey all,

Late start to the day as usual. Just canít seem to switch my days and nights around like I used to and am stuck on a really late schedule. It makes getting to stores while they are open a little challenging.

Janine, enjoy your time off to get that stuff done that you need to get done. Hoping you can check a few things off on your list.

Maryanne, thatís so nice that you did all of that shoveling. Iím sure itís well appreciated. Iím so happy to hear about the t.v stand arriving and undamaged at that. Not so happy to hear about the opera house caffoufle. Oh Hopey!!!

Just have to get to Agway, Petsmart and the post office today. More wrapping of recently arrived and new purchases.
Bobby is rescheduling the exterminator. I have learned to be very bullish about protecting my sleep schedule and adamantly refused to allow the exterminator to come that day. He will come next week to reload the bate traps. I did hear a little critter down there last week. Itís upsetting to me that weíre killing them but I just canít have them in the house.
I have a nice, toasty fire going in the fireplace right now. Itís an insert and all closed up so I can leave it burning while I run errands. Itíll keep the house nice and warm while Iím out.

I hope you all stay warm and dry and donít have too much shoveling to do. I have a little but it wonít be horrible.

Dawn

WAHOOOO THE NEW TV STAND FINALLY ARRIVED AND IS UNDAMAGED.

Now the new issue which is disappointing - Vietnam Vet's do not take large items! I really don't want to donate the original unit to Salvation Army so just sent a note to the company to ask if I can donate locally. I'd like to maybe donate to a home for Senior Citizens. There's one near me and I think it would be lovely to donate there as my neighbor's mother is currently residing there and my other friend's aunt used to be there and they are wonderful!!!

So we'll see what they say. I'm just so happy the new one is here! Now we can get it put together and then get this house back in order!!!

Janine - buckle down and do what you have to and take Friday off!

me again..

So not bad - it only took me like 75 minutes to do just about everything.

Neighbor's double driveway, other neighbor's driveway, mine, 3 walkways, front and back steps to all and then the sidewalks. Also did the sidewalk / walkway for the neighbor's I don't speak too because it was the right thing to do. We only got about 2 1/2 or so inches so wasn't too bad to move. Just took some advil to ward off any future back pains. Hosting a call at 11:00 to review final plans for some stuff we're transitioning and that's it for calls today which is great! I only have a few odds and ends to clear up so should get that accomplished.

HEY - for shopping...Ö..Dressbarn stores are closing in like 2 weeks? 80% off and I was poking around online and the prices are great - so if you have any 'female' shopping to do, I'd check it out. Might find a great bargain there!

I just received another message that my package from Kohl's might come today which will be great. That's the stuff I got for all my nephew's! And thankfully it's coming via UPS!

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE DRIVING!

Morning all,

Janine - I love her. I've seen her on Ellen before and she really appears to have a great sense of humor. And her voice! Hope you decide to take the day off!!!

Well yesterday was another one for the books. NO package and now as of this morning it's scheduled to be delivered today by end of day. Of course it is because I have to leave here at 3:15 for an appointment. SO we can all pretty much guarantee that it will be delivered after that time and the 130lb package will be left sitting on my walkway for me to figure out how to get inside. Just disgusted.

Meanwhile - brand new house I purchased for my Christmas Village. 90.00 but I got for 45.00...Ö..I decide I'll display just that house as it's an 'Opera' house and represents my mom's love for the opera. Displayed for ummmm 8 hours on the wine cabinet and something happened to freak Jessie out - she somehow jumped from window to cabinet and slid across the cloth and well, I don't have to tell you the end result. She didn't break the house but broke off the 2 bushes on either side and the little Christmas tree on the front. All can be glued but 8 hours???

Just got out of the shower and THEN looked out the window. I not only have to shovel my property but will need to do my TWO neighbor's. The guy that always plows just had knee replacement surgery on Monday. So will sneak away from the computer as soon as it lightens up out there (still snowing) and at least get that started. Hopefully the neighbor up the street will come help as well. I honestly don't mind doing it - just bad timing.

On the plus side - I'm off tomorrow and Friday!

Have a good day today - please be careful if you are driving.

Maryanne

I managed to leave work early again today! Two days in a row. I cannot get used to this, but I am enjoying while it is possible. I am looking forward to not having to work Friday and I may just end up calling in sick. I could use a day off.

Dawn...I am so sorry about your husband no understanding how important even 1 hour of sleep is to you!

Maryanne....Fed Ex is just ridiculous! I cannot imagine running a business with such lack of customer service. Fingers crossed your package comes today.

The shows on Sunday were awesome! Cirque was good (not my favorite). The ending was spectacular! Idina was just awe-inspiring. She was beautiful and funny and such an incredible performer! It was wonderful. Well worth the being tired.

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

- It's Janine!
