Ted, hope that work was "Q" and you had a good shift (if you didn't get put on call) and that you enjoyed the family meal and got some rest.
Joe, hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Bummer you have to make a work call on your days off.
Herring, that fellow definitely has a problem and it's probably good he didn't stay to disrupt things further. But nice he was invited.
Stars, hope you had a good day, despite everything. I meant to say glad Nannie didn't get hurt this time.
Diana sounds like a good time with the "kids".
AmoLucia, congrats on the weight loss. That's a stunning loss.
I had a good day yesterday. Best friend joined me and the family for dinner. The buffet did not disappoint, lots of good good of a wide variety. I had a bit of everything, prime rib, turkey, ham, shrimp, omelet, pasta, bacon, sausage, even Thai curried curried turkey, salads, cheese and dessert. Dad paid for everyone which was nice.
Best friend lives across the street and we stopped by for conversation. Dad told some stories of his Vietnam War days that I hadn't heard before. I'm reminded how some of the harrowing situations he was in and how lucky he was to make it out alive. He's never been too talkative about those days. He's also getting hard of hearing.
Mom was telling me that she has no friends because they all have died. Women I've known all my life are dead. The last was the neighbor across the street who moved in at around the same time we did in 1966. She said it with more amazement than this has happened, rather than a lot of sadness, but the tinge of sadness of was there. She's not inclined to get out and try to make new friends anymore either. She seems okay and said she isn't lonely because she has papa (my father). She's already said if he dies, she'd move to Florida but must have her own place.
I think having these conversations made me a little blue and had some anxiety after I was alone. Took a sleeping pill because I was a bit restless. Slept pretty decently thank goodness.
Today is my usual Friday off and it's "wash the sheets Friday" and that is being done. Having coffee and going to do the usual routine to get ready for the routine at work.
Scale is not kind and I might try to join the weight loss crew. But really only about 4 pounds more than I usually am. We'll see what yesterdays indulgence does but hope to work it off. I can see the four pounds around my middle.
