Morning

A productive half day at work. Got a questionnaire done and even called the difficult patient I'd been avoiding and let her vent, ended on a good note.  Set up tasks for Mon and Tues

Did laundry and headed over to the convention center to register.  The lines were crazy, even though I arrived early. Was in line about an hour or so.  Thankfully was in line with a guy from TN that I knew.  Also met a British guy at his first convention.  So I wasn't bored while I waited

Came home afterwards, a slow drive as it was rush hour by then

Heading back to the convention in the afternoon as there's not much going om before then.  Might do a hike this morning, but given all the walking I'll be doing in the next 2 days I'll have to take it easy

Thankfully no rain expected, temps have been normal for this time of year

Enjoy the convention Joe!

I enjoy looking at our small green lawn. I planted seeds where there were bare spots or dead grass. It is now covered with green grass. The new grass is neon green.

I finally ordered the personalized kitchen towel calendars I give for the holidays to friends and family. 

I hope you enjoy this Christmas song my uncle sang every year. 

He also wrote "Goodnight Irene"

I have not had access to google-mail alllllll day long 🤔 even though I tried everything I knew how to do, which wasn't much, I just kept getting the page that said "Nah-nah-nah-nah-boo-boo!" Anyway, hubby shut down everything in the house (wifi,TV,etc) and I shut down my laptop. Later he turned everything back on, so I was able to find my way back! It's amazing, even with how little time I actually spend on this rig, I was starting to get edgy, not being able to use it. I may be on here a little over an hour, an hour and a half, total, throughout each day, so it's not like I'm addicted ... but I just want to be able to have the CHOICE about whether to turn it on and use it, or not. 

Now that I'm here I can't think of much to say! I got up like a bolt at 8:20 AM, realized we'd not put out the trash bin for collection, so I threw on my bathrobe and got the trash out to the end of the driveway. Went back to bed and slept until 11 or so. Nannie's been behaving and tolerable; that med that was upped from 1 pill to two at night seems to have a pretty good effect. 

Since it is 7 PM and I am the official "Remote Control Chief", it is time for me to find a show that Nannie can watch. She'll go to bed between 8 and 8:30, so then WE get to watch what we want to.

Ta-ta! Have a good evening!

Good Evening -

Hope all is well with everyone. . .

Work, last night, was a nice busy. There were no patients in our teeny-tiny ICU. So, I worked in the E.R. for most of the night. Not to much activity in the E.R., thank goodness. One never knows how busy our teeny-tiny hospital's E.R. can be on any given night (or day). It can be slamming-busy, or "Q". After work, I drove home, went to bed, and slept for a few hours. When I woke up, I took my happy yet slightly damaged Jeep Cherokee to have its brand new (purchased 2 months ago) studded winter tires on. I also got new brakes put on it, too. Studded winter tires make a HUGE difference when driving in the snow. I made it up my steep driveway with the greatest of ease, thanks to those tires!

Presently, I'm relaxing in my studio. When I'm done typing here, I'm going to work on the Holiday Music recording that Amy I did several days ago. I plan on working on our holiday gift project throughout the weekend.

Hope all have a peace night tonight! 🙂

Ted

Hey ho, not much going on here, a little housework, a little decorating, ran a few errands. I decided to call EAP about getting set up with some counseling to work on the anxiety/anger I have about my health. Ted, and Tweety and NSIME inspired me to reach out for some help. EAP gave me some names, and I called one but got a message, so probably won't hear anything until next week. Making those calls was tough. I am pretty independent and its hard to ask for help.  I don't like how angry I feel about many of the provider interactions I have had this year. So hoping to get past that. 

Weather here is cool and overcast. We may go with the whole family to get a Christmas tree tomorrow or Sunday.

Thank for the song, herring. That one is new one for me.

I'm glad you like the song nursej22. Hudie (Leadbelly) Ledbetter said it was a Jamaican song. Their story is that roosters only crow at midnight to greet Christmas. He recorded it for the Smithsonian in the 1920s. 

I've posted my favorite YouTube version of my favorite Christmas song before, but here it is.

Hey!

Good News: Tomorrow is the LAST DAY any of us with Medicare have to tolerate being bombarded with mail and e-n-d-l-e-s-s TV ads about changing Medicare providers! I have had it up to my eyeballs with that tremendous push to 'reconsider' and change to this or that....and save gobs of money (hahahahaha) by doing so. It may be that some folks need to know, and may still be waiting til last moment, but Lordie, give it a rest!

Aaaaannd, ta-de-dah-DAH! I have now officially lost 15 lbs since summer. Still going, intend to knock off another 15-20 lbs. My particular 'secret' is fairly contingent upon going through all the recent heavy stress, which has, after a certain point, dampened my appetite considerably. I manage to consume about half the amount I used to. I have one of them-there emotional guts, and it seems the horrible Garlic-Press-of-Life-With-Nannie has been the thunder-cloud with a silver-lining. I don't plan to count on it as a way to continue my weight loss, but...eh...it's a start, providing a point of impetous. I'll take it where I can get it, y'know? It's hard enough to get the gumpties to start 'dieting', but to get a head-start, a boost in the process, well, at least you can see the results. Ten of those lost pounds were 'courtesy' of the MiL. 😉
