    Good afternoon, I've been down in the dumps, so haven't been posting. I hate winter, with cold and darkness. I am using a light box in the morning, and I think it's helping a bit. Nothing is new. Fiance is actively job hunting and doing all he can to find something. It's frustrating that the process is so long and drawn out in his field. It can take a couple of months to get through all the interviews. I'm impatient, and I have to trust the process and not get worked up. Joe-You seem to be very productive at work! I'm sure your manager is pleased. Ted-That's nice that you spoke with your Dad's wife. I hope she's doing ok. It's a gift that you were able to be with your Dad until the end. I had the same experience with my Dad, and it gives me peace that I was able to be there. Herring-Were you able to get your car yet? Stars-How are the gypsies? J22-Is the pacemaker site more comfortable now? I hope going out tonight cheers up DH and MIL. Hope all are doing well.
  2. Morning- It's still snowing here. We have about 8" so far. Work was delayed til 11. So far no patients have shown up. I think there will be a lot of no shows today. The main roads are ok, but the secondary roads are pretty slippery. I had fun this morning watching Niko watch the birds at the feeders. He chatters his teeth at them. They don't seem to care. Ted-I'm sorry about the car. That stinks. I'm glad you don't have to go anywhere today. Joe-It seems that you're doing just fine at work. Dianah-I hope you're able to get some better sleep tonight. Sounds like you had a great time at Disney! Stars-You did not offend me in the least. Being a caregiver for someone with dementia is so difficult. I care more that you find a way for you and DH and to cope and deal with the very understandable frustration and anger. I hope your psychologist and the Council on Aging are able to help. Everyone stay safe today!

    That blows my mind. They must not care about that anymore.

    It all comes down to integrity, and Trump has none whatsoever.

    Good morning- Thanksgiving was good. I ate too much, of course. I was glad not to be hosting this year. It was nice to be a guest, for a change. I worked yesterday, and it was kind of crazy. I think people are getting more and more unreasonable. It sounds like everyone had a pretty good day on Thursday. It does become somewhat bittersweet as we and our parents age. We watched "The Irishman" on Netflix last night. It was very good, albeit a bit long for me (3 1/2 hours!). We will likely stay in the rest of the weekend. We're expecting some bad weather tomorrow into Monday. I would be fine with a snow day on Monday! Tweety-Glad you like your new computer. That was a weird dream! Hope all have a good day.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Miller is among the lowest of the low in the trump administration, so it comes as no surprise that the White House stands behind him, and the GOP is silent. https://www.npr.org/2019/11/26/783047584/leaked-emails-fuel-calls-for-stephen-miller-to-leave-white-house

    Morning- I've been in a pissy mood. Fiance was laid off on Tuesday, and I've been wallowing a bit (ok, a lot). He is taking it much better than I am, and may already have some consulting work lined up. His former company needed to save money, so they got rid of his level of position and are replacing his position with a much lower paying one. No advance notice, no warning at all. It scares me because he has several friends, all in their mid 50s, who have experienced the same thing in the past year and have not been able to find work. Fingers crossed he is the exception. Tweety-I saw the pics of your niece's house on FB. It's lovely. Funny, I never think of Florida as having lakes. Joe-What are you working on now? Rainy and cold here. Meh.

    Nope. He's like a bratty little kid who refuses to apologize or acknowledge that's he done anything wrong. That being said, I would be all for that.

    It's been more of a busy weekend for me. Did errands and grocery shopping yesterday, the we saw the movie "Ford vs. Ferrari". I'm not a car person, but the Ferrari race cars were things of beauty. I enjoyed the movie. We went to our synagogue this morning for the installation and celebration of our new cantor. She is a young woman with a beautiful voice. Her teachers and mentors were there, along with her family from Maryland. It was a nice hour of music and celebration. I exercised when I got home, and now I'm doing some cooking. I'm trying out a corn casserole for Thanksgiving, and also roasting some Kabocha squash I got at the farm down the road. I will make pulled pork in my InstantPot a little later. Tweety-Nice that you got the day off after all. Hope you were able to get a bit more sleep. Joe-Did you try the shakshuka yet? What did you think of the movie? Dianah-Enjoy your day playing, and have a nice dinner. Herring-I have done baby goat yoga. Not a lot of yoga gets done. I pretty much just sat on my mat and played with the goats. They kept climbing on me so I gave up. I'm glad you got to see friends at the convention. Just looked outside and it's snowing.

    Morning- It's chilly here, too, with temps in the 30s, but nowhere near as cold as in Joe's neighborhood. I'm working this morning, but I'm done seeing patients. I'm just waiting for them to finish up with allergy shots. I saw a good movie last night on Netflix. It was called The Laundromat and starred Meryl Streep, Antonio Banderas, and Gary Oldman, among other well known actors. It's based on a true story about an insurance fraud. It was pretty good, and had some dark comedic moments. I also heard an interview this morning on NPR with the director of a film called Burning Cane, which is also on Netflix. The director came across as experienced, wise, and worldly. Turns out he's only 19, and started making this film when he was 17!! I was very impressed. I'll have to watch it. Joe-Stay warm. Congrats to J on his new dog. Tweety-Glad you're enjoying some milder weather. Enjoy your 4 days off. Stars-I can't imagine how stressful life is for you right now. I know what my parents went through with my grandmother, and the toll it took on them. Please do whatever you can to take care of yourself. Hello to Herring, Ted, Dianah, J22, Amo, and everyone else who stops by. Enjoy your Saturday.

    Yes, I do, if it has been determined that he committed "high crimes and misdemeanors".

    What do you INTENSELY DISLIKE?

    People who leave their grocery carts in the middle of the aisle while they go to get something. Patients who are rude and yell at the people who are trying to help them. Anyone who is mean to animals.
  14. Happy Saturday- I slept in and then went to the gym. I have grocery shopping to do, along with laundry. We went to a friend's house last night for dinner and game night. It was a lot of fun. We might see a movie tonight, if we can agree on one. Ted-Fingers crossed the potential buyer makes an offer. I hope you enjoyed your hike. Joe-Sorry to hear J isn't feeling well. I hope that turns around soon. Tweety-I rarely carry my wallet or a purse. I have my license and my debit card in a little sleeve that's stuck on the back of my phone case. Cash can go in the sleeve, too. It makes my life easier. I think I have some ancient black bean sauce in the back of the fridge. I tend to collect condiments, use them once or twice, and then they spend eternity in the back of the fridge. It's a big waste and I should stop. Hope you get the lawn mowed! Wishing everyone a good Saturday!

    Afternoon- It's a gorgeous day here. I just went for a walk at lunch and enjoyed some sunshine. Work has been very busy. I am sleeping better and seem to have more energy. Tweety-Glad you've had some good time off. Recharging is important. Hi Joe-Hope the computer issues are resolved. Herring-Enjoy the dinner tonight. Hope all are having a great day!
