Stars it did seem your area had a lot of bad storms that day, though mostly farther south

NJ22 glad you got the colonoscopy scheduled, though those are never fun

Tweety hope today proves a better day for you

Dianah I'm looking forward to eating inside my favorite restaurants too

Well, another difficult day.  One unexpected call had me trying to research some stuff, that got done by noon thankfully.  Then in the afternoon I had someone answer who's never answered before and we had a very long call with many tangents.  Had to adjust my schedule so I was able to leave on time.  Hoping next week wont' be so unpredictable

Have been reflecting that the 3 case management jobs I have had have all been problematic, as were the 2 floor nursing jobs I had.  Not yet ready to make changes but am starting to wonder if I should at least consider that

After work didn't do much, just exercised and relaxed, didn't even have the energy for cross stitch.  Stopped at the library to pick up a book

Today going to the coffeeshop as usual then to the arboretum.  Wasn't sure about the weather but it looks like the rain will hold off for now.  Will stop and get a haircut on the way home.

Rest of the day should be fairly ordinary.  Will exercise and watch some Three Stooges and Svengoolie,  who has werewolf movie, The Beast Must Die

It's in the 40s right now but will get up to the 60s, though rain is expected later today

Good Morning -

Joe - Seems like you have a relaxing weekend planned for yourself. 

Looks to be a lovely day, today. The sun is already out, and the temperature will be in the mid-50s later this morning. We plan on doing more hiking. We just don't now where, yet.

Yesterday morning was spent at the car dealership where I purchased my 2016 Jeep Cherokee (which I really like!). Had the studded winter tires rotated off, and the "regular" tires put on for the spring-summer-fall season. Also had the usual oil & filter changed, and the brakes inspected for possible replacement. (The brakes still had some life in them.) It took ALL Morning, starting at 8:00 AM, for this to happen. Don't know why it took so long. I had an appointment made to have the Jeep serviced thinking that the work would be done sooner than later. THAT was the wrong assumption. (Ugh!) Anyway, it's all done, and the Jeep looks to be in good shape. It least the weather was cold and rainy, so no potential hiking adventures were missed. For much of the rest of the day, Amy and I spent in-doors binge-watching "Major Crimes". We're halfway through Season 5 already, and have only Season 6 to watch until we watched all of the episodes to this show. We haven't figured out what we'll binge-watch once we're finished with "Major Crimes".

Today. . . I've been up since around 4:00 AM. For the first couple of hours, I wrote an official notice for our 2021 Spring HOA meeting that's coming up in May. (I'm the Secretary for our HOA.) Amy and I just finished getting the 35 letters to be "snail-mailed", which I'll be doing in about an hour's time (going to the Post Office). Per our HOA by-laws, official notices of HOA meetings must be mailed out to the membership by 1 month's time before the scheduled meeting. (Blech!!) I've been doing this, on and off, for over 7 to 8 years. I'm done being Secretary. At least this part is finished. Anyway, it looks to be a lovey day, today. Amy and I have to figure out where we'll go hiking. No matter where we go, the ground will be wet from yesterday's rain. Still, gotta enjoy the nice sunny day while we have it. 

Nothing much else going on. . . 

I hope all are well, and all keep well. Peace! 🙂

Ted

Good morning!

Joe, hope you enjoy the day.

Ted, glad you got some stuff done yesterday and hope you enjoy today.

Stars, Ozzie wouldn't like Florida with our frequent storms in the summer.  Glad you were able to calm him down.

J22, sounds like a productive day and a good meal.  Sux that there was such trouble scheduling.  Ugh.

Dianah, I love Thai food.  Glad you had a good outing.

We've been able to eat indoors for a good while now but it being Florida I've been able to eat out almost all the time even through the winter.  The couple of times I've eaten inside wasn't crowded.  Glad to have the vaccine and not worry so much about such things.  We still are at 5,000 cases a day but that's out of 100,000 tests so the positivity rate is a "good for Florida" 5.7% for the day.  The week's positivity rate is not good for my area 7%.   Will be interesting to see what Spring break brings.  There is a sense of optimism among the over 50 crowds that are getting vaccinated in large numbers.

Not much going on for me today.  Slept in and washing sheets now.  Going to wash the car and go to yoga.  Planning an outdoor hike myself for tomorrow either alone or with best friend.

Good morning!  Good to see you all, though I miss seeing herring posting!  I hope your healing, herring, is coming along!  You are in my prayers. ❤️

Our state is just starting to open up.  We hear Disneyland will re-open by April 20, at 15% capacity and I'm sure there will be new guidelines for attendees.  I also heard attendees will be California residents only, for now.  My patient a couple of weeks ago, who works in Guest Relations at the parks, said he heard the company is calling back 10,000 employees at the beginning of April, to educate/train on the new way things will be done.  The big joke is, (and for all I know, it may be true!!): NO SCREAMING on the rides!!  lol!  Dh and I will be monitoring the news releases for [the new-and-'improved'] ticket purchase plans (the old Annual Pass system is obsolete, so our passes are no good right now).

Dh has decided, after consulting with his neurologist, to NOT get the Covid vaccine.  He had a form of Guillian-Barre (CIDP) ten years ago and, while he's been stable so far - which the neurologist, who had not seen him since the acute phase, was glad to hear -- he decided not to get it.  In any case, vaccinated or not, we will continue wearing masks in public, avoiding crowds (sadly, we will miss a memorial service today), and practicing social distancing and much hand-washing/sanitizing.

Kudos to all (Ted, Joe, BCgrad, nurseJ22, herring) who help with elections, campaigns, education, association business, church business, etc.  I'm sure your volunteer efforts are greatly appreciated!

We are tuned in to Zoom Sabbath School, dh has it on speaker.  I am trying to multi-task.  Granted, I am not quite as attentive to the speaker when I am simultaneously online. 😉

Dh ordered some dried tart cherries, and they arrived yesterday.  No sugar added.  I tried one last night, they are pretty tasty!

Have a good day!

"No screaming on the rides!" Hahahahahahaha! 😂 GOOD LUCK with that one!

I did the grocery and pharmacy runs, but when I came home, hubby had not done any of the housework. He found out that his cousin died at 4 AM. That's 2 days from when Hospice opened her case. Anyway, hubby's year has been pretty tough on him, so pfftt to the housework. 

It's become cloudy again and rumors have it we will have more rain and thunderstorms, but so far, no tornado watches or warnings in this area.

Tuesday the 30th is National Doctors Day. I surprised my former doc w/ an email wishing him a Happy Doctor's Day and he said I am the only patient who has ever done that. I have three doc's here that I want to thank...my PCP, plus the doc who shoots up my hips and knees and lower back, and the varied "itis's" I get. (the gypsies), and we want to thank the doctor who changed Nannie's meds which made her into a decent human who is so much easier to deal with now (long may it reign!).

Going to go upstairs to get Ozzie's nerve drops, as the sky is now turning a very dark, deep steel blue.

Yes, miss Herring and think of her often.

Stars, sorry to hear about your husband's cousin.  Glad Nannie's meds are helping for now.   I recently read that exercise is a good preventative measure against dementia and progression so hope she continues her walks.

Wow Diana, I never thought about Disney Land there.  The Disney World here opened last July ironically the day after Florida posted a US record for the most covid cases in a day.  (California has since beat that in the fall surge I believe).  Still, I don't think it's been shown to be a super spreader place as they've been very strict with precautions and it would be bad for business if they got that kind of publicity.  I have a friend that has Season tickets and went opening day and has been steadily going since.  I recently read that attendance has steadily grown despite the pandemic.  Sorry that your husband can't get vaccinated.

I managed to get the car washed and enjoyed hot yoga.  It was so muggy and hot.  Stopped at the health food store after yoga and picked up some dinner...a vegan wrap, some vegan pad Thai and splurged and got a vegan "Hummingbird cake" which was great.

We had 45 seconds of hail that, within that time-frame, started out as big as walnuts and ended up as pea-sized, before it just turned back to rain. A momentary bit of excitement.

Hail usually precedes tornadic activity. Glad you stayed safe. Sorry to hear about hubs family. Hope he deals OK.

Missing herring  too.

Having some warmer temperatures lately. Inside got to 75 degrees yesterday. Veritable heat wave!

Villanova lost to Baylor! BOO HOO!

Joe, part of my frustration is that the colonoscopy is not scheduled, yet. After 5 phone calls, all I have scheduled is a nurse intake call, and a tele-health call with an NP. The Np call is in 3 weeks. Then it will like be 3-6 weeks after that that I get scheduled for the procedure. I have a sinking suspicion they will want to do it outpatient at the hospital. 

My day was not very exciting. I did a run first thing, and went my furtherest distance yet, 5 1/4 miles. I'm a bit stiff now, so I did lots of muscle rolling and stretching. The dh and I went to run errands. I stopped  dd's house to help her re-pot 2 blueberry bushes, and do a little yard clean-up. Her ex-husband came by with a ladder to help get the rest of her Christmas lights down. I am so glad they have remained friends. We had a nice visit as we did the tasks. Then we stopped for a bit to eat: I splurged and had deep-fried onion rings, and dh had a hamburger and milkshake. 

Joe, I can understand your reflection about case management. I do a bit of that and there are days when I've spent a day doing phone calls and feel like nothing has been accomplished. But every so often I feel like I actually help someone, which is the rewarding part. 

Tweety, that Thai food sounds delish. I wanted to get Thai or Vietnamese last night, but dh wasn't feeling like it. He is supposed to avoid seeds and nuts, and I think he was worried about eating rice. I always imaging my car runs better after a wash or an oil change. 

Dianah, that is too bad about your dh not being able to vaccinate, but I guess that's why its so important for the rest of us to get it.Are masks  hard to fit around his beard? My dh and youngest ds have beards and complain that conventional masks just aren't big enough. Or they just have fat heads. 

Stars, condolences to your hubby. This has been a tough year, indeed. 

Hi Amo. Yes, basketball was on the TV machine at our house. We are rooting for Gonzaga, who plays tomorrow. 

Ted, that has been my experience lately when taking my car to the dealership. Very long waits are the usual. I try to drop off in the morning and have them shuttle me to and from work. 

Tomorrow we are going plant shopping, and plan to drive past the tulip fields. Hopefully the weather is nicer that predicted.
