    Good Morning Ted and all who pop in,

    Thanks for kicking us off this morning Ted, hope tonight goes well for you. Nope did not watch the Super Bowl, rather than getting schtuff done that needed my attention. hehehe

    Had a lovely restful weekend, had some things that needed my attention which all got taken care of, worked a little outside but it sure was rather nippy. Had to clean the extra dirt and gravel that the snow plow had scooped on to the nature strip. All sorted, raked and looking good although my arms feel it.

    I hit the weights and worked out well so my arms feel that they are 8ft long. LOL

    Looking at a busy day with an admission and a heap of visits that I will not be able to get done so I shall have to put some of those off until tomorrow. LOL

    Hope you are all doing well.

    I am still struggling a little with my friends heart break but we are in constant contact so that makes me feel closer to them. Have to get flowers off to one of my besties tonight.

    May your day bring peace in your hearts and smiles on your faces.

    Many hugs to you all.

    Sabby glad you're able to stay in contact with your friend to provide support

    Morning Ted

    Odd dreams last night and had some problems sleeping.

    Yesterday did lots of cooking in the morning, did a bit of cleaning as well. Rest of the day was pretty quiet, weather was very warm so I went out for a long hike. Ran a few errands, came home and exercised.

    Today should be fairly ordinary. Going to see the counselor again tonight, wanted to see her once more before I jump into the dating pool

    Good morning!

    Ted, The Denver Broncos won what is probably one of the most boring Super Bowls of all time. I was rooting for Denver, because I love Peyton Manning and the speculation is he will retire.

    Tweety will hate me, but while Beyonce looked FABULOUS, I'm not a fan of lip syncing your way through a performance. Lame.

    I had a couple of wheat beers last night, and chili which was really salty for some reason ??? so it's bloat city today, baby.

    It just started to snow. I am at work and all the teachers from out East called in sick, because it's already snowing out there.

    Working Saturday this week, may try to grab some after school hours Tues, Wed, Thurs, but I don't want to commit until I see the snow.

    Have a wonderful day and be safe!

    Morning everyone...

    I did sorta watch the Super Bowl. We went to a friend's house for a party, so I spent most of it socializing. I did like the weiner dog commercial.

    We're waiting for some big snow today. It's very windy and it's just started to snow. I took the afternoon off for an appointment, but it's likely that will be cancelled. I hope to back home by 12:30, in front of a fire in my snuggie.

    Sabby-It must hurt to be so far away from your friends, but I know they will feel your love and support from miles away. Ted, enjoy your day before heading in to work. Are you supposed to get snow from this storm? Joe-I hope you have a good meeting with the counselor. You have to look at dating as an adventure. Keep your expectations low, your wits about you, and have a healthy dose of skepticism for what people say about themselves. There are good people out there, but it may take a little time to find someone you "click" with. I met a lot of frogs before finding the prince, but it was fun to meet new people.

    Time to head out. I hope everyone has a good day.

    Here's a photo that one of my co-workers had taken on her camera (she's in the shot). The photo has all of my fellow ICU staff nurses who were able to work last night on our project, "Healthy Heart Night 2016" that. (There are two not in the photo because they were at work. Someone has to man our Teeny-Tiny ICU! LOL!)

    (This morning, I've been editing the video-footage that I took last night. It allows me the time and opportunity to focus on just the wonderfulness of my co-workers and the hospital where I work.)
