Sunday: Rain and snow mix today. Did have peeks of sun yesterday. That was nice.

John must have gotten his brakes fixed as he texted pictures of the food he prepared @ work yesterday. Didnít hear anything else from him, though. So glad he made it to work. I know he was worried about that.

Getting things packed little by little for going to Mayo. Donít want to rush.

Blessings and hugs.

Char: Yes, I find I do better doing something while DH watches football. NOT a huge fan.

Yes, a very cold day here, too. A taste of winter. We had snow, and itís a little early for that. Oh well. Hope itís not a harbinger of a harsh winter.

Char: Hope all is well.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

I started my day late today so didnít get out for my walk until this afternoon. Really it doesnít matter as I have nowhere to go. Hubby will be watching football so it is better to be outside

My walks are sure a lot chillier the last few days. If this is a sign it willbe a long winter.

Hope all is well,with you ladies.

Good to hear from you Chsr a d I am glad the job is working out for you. I was thinking it might be too busy. I know it is perfect for you as you can use your talents.

Sorry about the stress with family. Sounds like your son and Mother are from the same cloth maybe?

I hope you can take some time for yourself. Thank goodness for Melissa and the pups!

Another try.

Yes I have been busy. Busy ok but the stress from my mother and son is not.

Barb, how much will your plate hold this year! I am sorry to hear about Clara but nit surprised. I am just proud that she has the strength to end this sooner than later. That takes a lot of courage to do. I hope the annulment will be the answer. Then John having another episode with the car. Enough is enough. You gave way to much stress on you right now.

Donna, sounds like your life is status quo for these days. One day at a time.

Work is busy but not stressful and I am enjoying it. Getting a few systems in place to help things move a little smoother. I have just about mastered the software program, that was the hardest. It does help tremendously to know the therapy end.

I have had a sinus issues several days but it seems better today. It has been way too warm for October. High 70ís to the low 80ís. 15 degrees above average.

I will come back later and brief you on my motherís latest shenanigans.

Yikes Char. I hate when that happens. Itís still good to hear from you and we know you are busy with your new job.

Itís cold here too but itís not raining so I will go for my walk today. This is unusually cold weather for us especially this early in the year.

Barb your zoom breakfast sounds good. I havenít had a poached egg in a very long time

Happy Saturday!

Saturday: Zoom breakfast this morning. Hurray! Made poached eggs, sourdough toast and fruit salad. Really, really simple.

What a miserable, ugly day yesterday was! Rain, rain, rain. At least itís dry right now. Cold, though.

Hugs and a wonderful Saturday.

Donna and Char: HOpe all is well.

Yikes Barb more news you didnít need. Thank goodness he is ok which is the main thing. I sure can understand how he has let his breaks go. He just couldnít afford to fix them with all that has happened to him this year. Your whole family will be happy to see 2021.

Itís cool and rainy here so it was an inside day for me. Did some laundry and moved some clothes around pad. No point in having summer clothes sitting around.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Friday: Looks like more rain.

At least itís FriYaY, right.

Not such a great morning. Phone rang @ 1:30 am. IT was Clara. Thought there was something wrong for her again. Nope. She got a call from John. His car was in a ditch. He had walked home and thatís when he called her, then she called us. We talked w/him briefly and he was shook up but all right. No details really about what happened till this morning.

Clara took him to see about getting the car towed around 5 am. The car wasnít there. Itíd been impounded. So now he has to wait for a call from them. Apparently his brakes were bad. Omg. Just cannot fathom what the rest of this idiotic year is going to be like. IíM . DONE . WITH . 2020 . already. **SIGH** Glad heís all right, though. Clara is off, so if he gets a call about picking the car up, sheís going to take him. She lives 10 minutes from him vs. 25 for us, besides the fact that we have to be isolating. GAH!!!!!

HUGS and TGIF.

Morning on our once again lovely fall day. I almost feel like we are going to pay for this!

Another walk is planned for this morning then this afternoon I think I will work on our deck giving it the final clean up for the winter. I also; need to drain the hose and water line and shut off the tap. I think I will put the cushions away too.

I have a few bills to soupy too. Thanks for the reminder!

I walked for over two,hours today then did a few errands this afternoon.

Barb good news in the eye visit.

Tuesday: Well, still wrapping my brain around Claraís news. BUT it really is for the best. Sadly.

The sun did come out for awhile yesterday. Then the afternoon was cloudy, but no more precipitation.

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday.

HUGS

Donna: Donna was only married a little over a month. Based on that, it is possible that she could get an annulment vs. a divorce. That would be good. But it is like watching a train wreck happening in slow motion. We could see it, but she couldn't. **SIGH** She did contact our attorney yesterday and got good advice re: finances, safety and what steps she needs to be taking.

Char: Missing ! Hope you're all right.

Lovely fall day here with some sunshine which is a bonus. Had a two hour walk so I am am a happy girl. Now have laundry going amd a pot of chilli simmering for dinner. I made a roasted butternut squash and cauliflower soup the other day so I was able to freeze some for later. Now i think I will ll go out and do a few errands.....maybe.

Barb how long was Clara married? It just feels like a few months. It must be a pretty unstable relationship. It must be very hard to watch someone yiu love go through this. Hopefully she will be legally protected.

Missing you Char. Your life have to be very hectic.

Monday: Looks like rain . . . a little . . . mixed with . . . *S* Still cold, but itís that time of the year. The temps are supposed to reach near 60 on Thursday, but then right back into the 40ís. Hmmm. . . . the sun came out. Thatís an improvement!

Plan to check in w/the surgeon again this afternoon. HOPEFUL weíll have some information, but . . . wonít hold my breath. Left a message.

Got a call from DD. *SIGH* She is on the path to divorce. While I didnít say so, it is no surprise, and I think itís for the best. She has to be done w/him once and for all. I think sheís there. Gave her the name of our atty. and she did call. Called us back to tell us the advice she was given (all good) and is going to take care of finances today. Steps in the right direction. Sad. But he just is not a good person.

I wish you all a motivated Monday!

Donna: Glad you got food prep done! It helps during the week.

Good luck @ the retina specialist.

Nice you had a good visit with Clara. Too bad it had to be a garage visit but I certainly understand the cautious behaviour.

I spent most of the day in the kitchen prepping food. The day went fast.it was t that nice out so it was a good thing to do.

Tomorrow is retina specialist for Mim and then our flu shots.

Sunday: Had a wonderful, but short visit w/Clara yesterday. We sat in the garage (and it was COLD!) but we were bundled up. She looked good and seems like the problems are ironed out for now. I think it will be a continual process, but sheíll learn that, too.

Same gunky weather today. OH well.

Another good two hour walk today amd now catching up on a few emails. Nothing exciting going on here other than a little housework.

Barb your breakfast sounds like a real treat. I know you would have felt spoiled. One of these days you will be able,to go back to regular breakfasts with friends. Seems impossible doesnít it?

Took the car in for the oil change and it looks like we are going to have to buy new tires. I guess it is time and we will do it before winter and the rainy season. Also voted (Canadian provincial election) at the advanced poll on the way home. I am glad we did as there was hardly anyone there. It was raining so hard so I guess people were waiting for it to clear up.

Housecleaning this afternoon so good,to,get that done.

Rather a quiet day today as I had to take Jim for some medical,tests. Too much sitting around waiting for over two hours.

Tomorrow morning we have to take the van in for an oil change. It sure took a lot longer for this appointment to come up with hardly using the vehicle in the last six months. Thatís one plus of Covid

This will sum up what I am dealing with today.

If I die before my mother I am sure my death certificate will read. Cause of death. MOTHER!

Donna: That is one of the reasons I just wish we could get an answer about the thyroid surgery! I think that may prolong the stay by a day or 2. As it is, we have a week booked.

Windy here yesterday, too, but nothing damaging. Thank goodness. Glad your winds died down. Relatively calm here, too.

Char; Hope all is well.

Hugs, ladies.

Morning ladies, thank goodness the wind has died down. Hopefully it will be a nicer day. I did manage to get a walk in yesterday but it was pretty blustery and I didnít see anyone else out there.

Barb do you expect to be gone longer this next trip?

Today I am going to go to Costco and pick up a few things. I need gas so I might as well pick up a few things while I am there.

Wednesday: Had to run out and get a suitcase for next month. Found one and it was on sale. Glad I went early. NOBODY out. Thank goodness.

Otherwise, just @ home. Finished some more deep cleaning.

The weather was weird yesterday. Sunny, then rained. Just short lived rain. Then in the afternoon got very windy. Felt cold. But better with the sun out.

HUGS and wonderful Wednesday.

Char: Wow! The business is taking off!

Hope the painting goes w/o a glitch.

Donna: Yes, the physical did go very well.

Have a good time w/the haircut! NO, probably not a good idea for him to go, but yes, I know itís hard to convince them of something if their mind is otherwise made up.

OH GOSH, it is very difficult now-a-days with medical appointments.

Barb I hope the physical went well yesterday for Jason. I probably should do that too as I have not had my annual yet this year. I a nit even sure if my doc is doing it. Will have to check.

Char I knew you were busy with the painting but forgot you might be working on Monday. I csn just imagine how happy she is to have you with her. I hope it is not too busy for you as I know you were planning on just part time.

Our Thanksgiving was nice with just the two of us but so different. It does not bother Jim at all but I sure missed the family gathering, Your celebration season starts in about a month so we will see how it goes for you. Just think Barb this time next month Jason will hopefully be finished hip is surgeries.

Today i have a haircut and I also have to take Jim to the lab. I told him I would come back home, get him and then go for his test but he wants to come with me. I donít think it is a good idea but try to convince him otherwise. There is a coffee shop close by so he can go there when he is done. The labs are so crazy right now as you cannot wait inside so he will have to line up outside even if it is raining which I think it will be.

Coming up for a breath of air For a few minutes. It has been crazy busy.

Donna, I hope you had a nice even though different birthday.

Barb, anything from the surgeon yet. Or still hurry up and wait?

Work was so busy yesterday. So many new orders I didnít even get half of them processed. Going in early in hopes of getting off earlier this afternoon and with everything caught up.
Buisiness has picked up drastically. Now it is keeping it consistent and waiting for the income to align. That takes a while as it takes 6 to 8 weeks to get paid by insurance and Medicare .Hopefully by Jan or Feb she can see the finances increase. She got off to a bad start as she was just getting established when She had to shut down for a while due to Covid.

At least I feel like I am earning my keep.

Have to finish the morning chores and get ready to leave.

I should be off tomorrow and will catch you up on the painting events in the morning.

Hugs and Love

Barb donít we just love nice fall days. Maybe even more than hot summer days.
I have been puttering around today which is nice as it gets a few more things done without a big rush. I am also,preparing our .Thanksgiving dinner which is a little busier than planned . Jim made an appointment for a massage at 2:10 and of course that is right when I would be doing some prep work. Just have to make sure I have most of it done before I leave as I am sure it will be after 3:30 when we get back home. Men.....

Itís raining here so I donít think I will be walking today but thatís ok as I have enough to do anyway.

Chsr I hope the painting went well yesterday and you are getting things back in place. Your whole house is done now isnít it?

Donna: I think you're right. . . nobody will forget this year, and definitely wonder . . . how did we get through this!

Jason has good and bad moments, understandably. He just wants all of this to be history, and I do not blame him one bit. I am not the one experiencing what he is and *I* want it history, too. But as I've said, it's better the surgeon takes his time and things are done right.

HUGS and hope you got out a little.

Good morning ladies, Waiting for Jim to get up so I can start my day. I hope to get a walk in this morning when hopefully there will be a break in the rain.

Donít blame you Barb for being cautious with all that is going on. We sure canít be too careful.

On a normal year we would have Jimís family here for the weekend. It sure does not feel like Thanksgiving. We just have to remind ourselves that we want to celebrate these holidays again.

Glad you had your zoom breakfast. Hopefully one day soon you will be able to get back together for your Saturday morning ritual.

Have a great day.

Saturday: Zoom breakfast. Pancakes again. But topped w/fruit compote. Good! Just sad to not be able to go, but WI is just in bad shape w/the virus and cannot afford to get ill.

No word yesterday from the surgeon, so have to be patient and wait till Monday. But Iíd rather things be done right than in a hurry.

Have a sensational Saturday.

Hi ladies, we are back to rain and it is suppose to get quite bad tonight. I canít complain though as we donít have to worry about hurricanes.

Ah, poor Dakota. Getting old isn't for sissies, even dogs.

I spent a few hours this morning straightening out our storage locker, Jim is not up to even sitting there helping so there is still lots in there that I know could go. I canít throw it out without knowing what he wants to keep. He could almost build a house with the tools he has in there. Why would you need them when we live in a condo. He still has one of those big red tool holders with drawers. Really?.?
I now have a lot of stuff to take to the thrift store.

It kept me out of trouble this morning.

Awwwwww, so sorry to hear Dakoda is having trouble with her legs. **SIGH** Getting old stinks. Even for dogs.

Poor Miss Lilly has pretty thin hair right now (from her microvascular dysplasia of her liver), but the groomer is convinced itíll grow back thicker.

Having an amazingly relaxed day considering painters will be here in the morning. So glad 95% was already done.

It is very cloudy and rain coming in tomorrow. I have swept, cleared my desk, stitched, dusted the den as I didnít get to that yesterday. I do have to go to the trash dump, PO and grocery store shortly.

Wish I could put it off till morning but donít think that is an option. But maybe it is. I will see how the spirit moves in a little while.

Barb, my Dakoda needs grooming so bad. It is so hard in her as she has difficulty standing for very long and sits down on them. Has to be done so she is more comfortable and for hygiene also.

Donna, hope a.. is well with you.

Hugs and love

Ahhhh. Home from work. So so busy. Her caseload has about doubled since I started. I think simply from having someone to process the paperwork faster. I just about have the software down.

I was off yesterday but was moving things in the last room to be painted.n got. Finished that up this morning so very little to do tomorrow to get ready for them Sat.

Donna, amazing the things that become hard to do as we age. I know Jim had to feel bad that he couldnít open the cans and I know it was hard for you to witness that.

Barb, I donít know when I will get my hair cut. Least of my worries.
Hope you got some news today!

Late checking in as it has been a full day. Walked with a friend this morning and stopped for coffee which was wonderful. It is still nice enough to sit outside so that was perfect. We wonít be able to do that much longer. Also had a few errands this afternoon. A full day now is much different than when I was working. Haha!!!

Hope you hear from the doctors soon Barb. Waiting is not fun.

Haircuts always make us feel better. Mine is next week

I got my cabbage rolls done yesterday and I was concerned that I might not be able to lift the roaster out if the oven because of my wrist. I managed but sure had to be careful. What a disaster it would have been if I had dropped it.
I wanted Jim to help me yesterday but he was suffering with his back. I asked him to open some soup cans for me and can you believe it he couldnít do it. I know it sounds unbelievable.

I have to call today and make the appointment for the car. Thanks for the reminder.
We have to take care of a letter about his hearing aids too. We are going to try and get the Workmanís Compensation Board to help with the cost. He worked on a printing press for many years and of course in those days there was no thought to protecting a persons hearing. We will see what happens and it is worth a try. Several of his friends have had help this way.

I have to clean the flowers on the deck but maybe I deserve a quieter day today. It is suppose to start raining on Friday so will have to plan to clean this up before then.

Char your new job sounds very busy. I bet she loves having such a qualified person working with her.

Here is a meme NanaSue posted today. I know you have most likely seen it Barb but probably not Char.

Wednesday: Productive day! Got the lawn mowed and edged. Looks good. Maybe one more time

Got take out last night! That felt good. NO cooking.

HUGS and hereís to a wonderful Wednesday.

Char: Thatís wonderful that Melissa had a nice supper waiting when you got home from work.

LOL! Yes, John is a really good cook. He did some food last Thanksgiving. Used to love watching the Food Network as a kid. Guess he really learned as he watched and had fun!

Hope you got a good rest after your long day.

Donna: Hope things went well w/the car.

HUGS ladies.

Really late checking in.

Last night I didnít get home from work till 7:30. It was a very busy and crazy kind of day. Tonight it was 6:30 a busy day but not as crazy. I canít believe how many new referrals we are getting each day. Canít schedule a new patient for about 2 weeks. That is good and bad.
I a, off tomorrow UNLESS it gets really crazy and she needs me to go in. The last room to redo is going to be painted Sat so have lots to do between now and then to get things ready for them.

Melissa had a nice dinner ready when I got home. Since I have just relaxed, played with the pups, and stitched.

We are having beautiful weather. Low to mid 70ís during the day.

Barb, glad to hear that both of your kids seem to be doing well. I believe I would tell John to bring samples instead if sending pictures!

Donna, I have ALWAYS had to take care of car maintenance and most everything else that needed to be done - finances, house stuff, just not the yard work. Jimmyís attitude was it is your car, you take care of it. I am fortunate that the same dealership has taken care of my maintenance and I do trust them 100%.

So getting ready to wind down for the night. Catch you tomorrow.

Love, hugs, prayers

Donna: It is hard when you have to do what Jim used to do in addition to your own chores. ((HUGS))

The oil change worked out well. We were able to walk a little instead of sitting there waiting.

Good morning, thanks for the reminder Barb. We need to get our oil changed too and I will get Jim to make an appointment He always took care of thst but I guess it is my job now. I d t like going to the dealership as the a,ways try to up sell and I donít know if what they are telling me is necessary.

Glad you made a dent in the phone calls. I donít like doing that either. Such a waste of time going through being on hold.

Busy day today and I will start this soon after my coffee and shower,

Yes, I know heís made that statement. Jas and I already mailed in our ballots. But even that heís trying to sabotage. He ordered the Post Master General to have many mailboxes removed and remove mail sorting machines (which speed up the process of mail delivery). **SIGH** Just criminal, IMHO. So, we will see what happens. I donít think it is going to be good.

I worry for your school teacher DIL, too. Many teachers close to retirement are leaving. People do not want to be substitute teachers. I donít blame them.

Prayers.

He has already said he will not relinquish the reins quietly.

My only hope for the world is the citizens of America will get out and vote

I can tell you the world will be watching.

Clara must have a lovely heart. I know you are worried for her. I am worried also for my schoolteacher daughter-in-law.

Donna: Oh I was pretty surprised, as well, but I think Clara remembers her Grandparentsas she works with the elderly. Sweet . . .BUT in these times, probably not the best choice. **SIGH**

I absolutely cannot even begin to fathom the # of people that Trump has infected. Secret service, White House staffers, on and on. I just think he is insane. Yes, I have NO DOUBT there are going to be VOLUMES written about this administration.

No, this one has no respect for anyone or anything that doesnít fit his own needs. It is sad. **SIGH*

I just cannot wait till Nov. 3rd. The problem is I hope he doesnít have any Ďtricksí up his sleeve and I feel he will have plenty of chaos to cause **SIGH** It is totally worrisome.

I canít believe she would quit the bank for the nursing home. She must have a caring heart.

I forgot to comment on your post about Trump It is actually very unbelievable what he did yesterday and makes me wonder if the man has a brain at all. Can you just imagine the people he has exposed. Oh the stories that will come out when he is no longer president.
You both know I am not voting so I have no prejudices for either party. I have seem many of your presidents and they all were respected for the job they did but this man has no respect for anything or anyone. It is shocking. actually.

Donna: Yes, Clara was working @ a local bank but she quit that job on Friday. **SIGH** Wish sheíd have chosen to stay there and quit the nursing home, but she like her job @ the nursing home. She has to live her life, I guess, but makes this Momís heart worry!

Ohhh, cabbage rolls sound good. My Grandmother used to make those. Delicious.

Have a good evening.

Hi ladies, love reading your posts each day and catching up with each other.

Char your life is busy and I hope not too much as I know you like your quiet time. I was wondering about your comment about Matt. Would the police even hire someone who had retired from another job. Wouldnít he be too old?
I know you have your worries about your son and your Mom. Itís hard not to worry.

Barb, oh my life is such a roller coaster for you. I am happy John is doing ok. He much be a very good chef. It is not an easy job but I guess you just have to love it. Me I am tired of cooking!
Glad to hear Clara is happy. I hope things stay that way for her. Sis mr she work in a bank before too?

Itís lovely here today again and I am loving my walks in the fall temps. I also went to the produce store and for my cabbage to make holupchi (cabbage rolls). I will do thst tomorrow. It will be a big job and take most of the day. Jim and I will have lots in the freezer. I also bought a spaghetti squash and butternut squash. We love the fall vegetables.

Monday: Jason has an eye exam appointment, so I will be driving him this morning.

Another nice day, but cool. Itís fall, so thatís all right.

Lots of phone calls to make, so will be a phone day, I guess.

HUGS and have a marvelous Monday.

Char: We discussed the TSH level and the other thyroid function levels. He felt they werenít that far off and hopefully once the malignant nodule is eradicated, the thyroid may perform better (it usually does, he said, in his experience). So, weíll for sure be having lots of labs drawn periodically post op. Thatís not a burden, believe me. Compared to what could be.

Yes, there is a LOT of pieces of the puzzle to put together and wrap the brain around. PHEW.

Definitely saying prayers for you re: Your Mom and Son. Those things we cannot control are hard to Ďlet go ofí but best off to leave it to prayer. Nothing else TO do.

John is doing well. He sends pictures almost daily of the dishes heís created. OMG! They look wonderful. I can still remember how entranced he would be when weíd watch the Food Network and Emeril in particular. Guess he knew what he wanted to do from a young age!

Clara and Nick Ė well, mostly I just listen when Clara calls. She sounds happy, but very busy. Thatís all right. Still working @ the nursing home (sigh) but ok. Worries the heck out of me!

Char, there is NO WAY I would have envisioned the world we are now living in . . . EVER!

Then we have a President who doesnít follow the rules, gets Covid, being treated (at our expense, of course) and BREAKS QUARANTINE to take a spin in the car and wave to his supporters. OMG. All I can feel is it is a fantasy world for him.

Up early this morning, stitched about an hour, did the Monday chores, went to PO and grocery store. Have about 30 minutes before I leave to go to work and drop trash off on the way.

I just like having it all Done before I leave and not face it when I get home. A beautiful day. This is my favorite time of the year.

Yes, I think everyone is struggling right now one way or another. The there are those we know and live that have had way too much to handle this year. My biggest stresses are my mother and son and nothing I can do about either but say prayers.

Matt text me this morning that he has decided when he retires from his state job he wants to be a policeman. First of all because if his stroke he could not pass the physical. Second his temper ant is not all suited. He would be on national news. So what do I do - ignore the text and let him figure it out himself.

Barb, hope the two of you are sorting this out emotionally. How is John doing these day and the newlyweds?

Donna, hope you are able to get in some ways. I know having to be more available for Jim as well as your knees have put a dent in your activities.

The world has changed in general far more any of us could have imagined

Barb that makes sense. I think what through me off was the possibility that the possibility that the thyroid issue was causing the problems with the spine. So much for yaíll to deal with.

Char: The spinal surgery is a more urgent situation. The widow of opportunity for return of function after the surgery is closing. So it needs to be done.

The thyroid cancer is a slow growing cancer. The surgeon said it was safe to wait. Now if the treatment option preferred is able to be done, it is possible it will be done prior to his spinal surgery when we go up in November. We have to wait to hear from the thyroid surgeon what the final determination re: surgery is.

Late checking in. I took yesterday off to do nothing but what I wanted. Was up really early doing my morning daily sweeping. Then worked on sorting through pictures. So tired of going through them all but no one else to do it. My son will probably throw his out and never look at them. Watched a ball game and stitched this afternoon. Took a short nap. Next is washing my hair and make a grocery list so I can go tomorrow before work. The spirit never moved this weekend.

Barb, I am glad you and Jas were able to get some rest this weekend. Will just be glad when all of this is behind you. I am not sure I understand why they are not delaying the spinal surgery till the thyroid is taken care of?

Donna, glad you have a nice evening. I agree with nice to have a conversation with others. That is one benefit if my job. I know I have Melissa here and she is an adult but not on the same level.plus you donít always talk to your children the same as others. Or at least I donít.

Have a good night and a good start if a new week. 3 more months and this year will be over. Surely 2021 will be better!

Hugs, love and prayers

Sometimes xom8ng home is as much work as getting ready.
Rainy days are good for taking it easy and reading a good book.

I had to go to .Costco and pick up Jimís prescriptions but other than that it is a quiet day. I will go for a short walk shortly but I could just curl up on the recliner with my book so easily.

We had a lovely evening last night. We were able to sit outside for most of the evening and just came in for dinner. It was fun to chat with other people for a change.

Hope all is well with you Char.
