Morning-

I never got around to posting yesterday. Not a lot going on. Work today and tomorrow, and then Thanksgiving, then work Friday. We are going to see John Legend in concert Sun. night. The tickets are our Hanukkah present to each other. We'll have a nice dinner and then see the show.

NSIME-I am so sorry that you're still in a great deal of pain. I hope your MD responds to you today and actually helps you.

I hope that every one who is off today enjoys their days, and I hope work goes smoothly for those of us there.

Morning BC

Sleep was a bit fitful last night, didn't help I woke up with a nosebleed. Will have to cut back on the allergy medications a bit more, and maybe get another humidifier

Yesterday was fairly busy at work but not as bad as I thought. Today hopefully should be a bit slower. Want to make sure everything goes smoothly since I'll be off the next 2 days

Ran some errands yesterday, did the usual exercise and meditation. Am using the exercise bike now, decided I'm going to try and increase the intensity of exercise and see if that makes a difference

Have been reading a new book on death and dying my Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush, has been quite interesting though sometimes I'm not clear on the concepts

Not much planned for today after work, except to be glad work will be over until Friday

Good morning all.

Enjoy the John Legend, concert, BC.

Biggie wasn't limping yesterday afternoon, so no bootie today. I will see how he does.

It will be just me and my work nurse friend for Thanksgiving dinner. Her daughter decided to spend the holiday with grandparents in West Virginia.

We are having deviled eggs, homemade cheese roll, pumpkin soap, salad and pumpkin pie and WINE.

My new friend had to cancel coffee plans today as she is feeling overwhelmed with Thanksgiving preparations.

It's okay because the timing was affecting my trip to the organic farm, and therefore, Biggie care.

It' not raining, but it is cloudy and gloomy and cold.

Hope all have a good day.

You're born, you live a little, and you die. Let me know if the book turns out differently, Joe.

So, hi all. I'm sorry I've been away so long. I have been checking in on Yellow, on my SN board, and I see BC and Tweety on FB. In fact, in about 2 weeks I'm going to Boston for the weekend and I'm meeting up with BC and BostonFNP! I'm so excited!

I guess I should check in with BC on that.

Life is...okay. Ups and downs, like all of you. Far's Mom has PT a few times a week and I bring her. She still stalks you all here. The Big Kid is graduating this year, and The Kid is transferring to a closer school. They will both be home for Thanksgiving, and there's my thankfulness right there.

This year has been rough. I lost my Dad at the end of last year, and then my cousin and my dog within 2 days of each other.

My cousin died of ALS, I think I mentioned that. She was My Person in life. So, now I'm without a person. There's so many times I want to text her or call her or look across a room and roll my eyes, and I can't. She was 49.

Work is fine. I'm still plugging away as a School Nurse.

I met Some Dude and he moved across the country to be close to me. The Kids are iffy, but we are taking it very slow. He lives about 15 minutes away from me, instead if 15 hours, which is what it was. Another person to be thankful for, as he is the kindest and most patient man I have ever been with. Much needed. He doesn't seem to require anything from me, except being happy. I didn't know there were people like that, still.

Nothing else. Life is pretty boring, but after the last year, I'll take it.

Imma gonna go try to catch up, now.

Good Morning!

NSIME, I can only echo the good vibes and hope things get better.

Nurseactivist, so that there's still smoke issues there. Ugh..

BC, enjoy the concert. I like John Legend. Hope you enjoy the show. I just got tickets to see Michael Buble in February. I had read he was retiring but he's on tour and said those were just rumors. Also have Elton John and Cher coming up. w00t

Joe, hope today isn't crazy and that you sleep better.

J22, too tired to eat??? Never my issue. Hope the eye is better today.

Nel, glad to hear Biggie's hoot is doing better and hope it continues to improve.

Stayed up past midnight after bowling and slept in today. Not much going on. Going to make a Whole Foods run. There was a charge for $2.00 at an online bicycle shop on my credit card I didn't make and so they called it fraud and sent me a new one. This will be the last time I give this credit card a try as it's the third fraud. Any more and I'll just cancel this card. So frustrating though and I wonder how it happens. I like this card because of the Amazon points. But it is what it is.

Hope everyone has a good day.

No Stars, I'm so sorry for the pain. Ugh. Hopefully it gets worked out.

I'm pretty happy to see all the usual suspects still check in. has Ted been around> He's been kinda scarce on FB.

I saw mention of Netflix. I'm almost done with The Haunting of Hill House. Stupendous. Anyone else?

Good morning all!

Lil Nel, good Biggie wasn't limping! yay for healing!

T-giving meal sounds delish.

It's nice of you to provide "pumpkin soap" along with the meal. ;) :D :D

good to see you, nurseactivist!

Hope most ppl are protecting themselves against the smoky air (which, as we read, is more than just smoke).

I'm sure filters for a/c and heating are full.

Hello Joe! Hope your day goes well/smoothly.

BC, yes, Enjoy the concert! :)

Hope the day goes well.

Darn autocorrect, Dianah!!! I hate it.

My sister lives in San Francisco, and has been wearing mask, due to fire smoke.

Looking at a map of the fire area is depressing. It is huge.

NPR has done a lot stories on the displaced. Such a horrible situation.

Good to see nurseactivist and Far'wyn here this morning! What tattoos did you get, Far'wyn?

Guess which Ortho-practice is NOT OPEN, and whose Patient Portal is SHUT DOWN for the day "due to system-wide' problems. YAH! Unbelievicable!!!

The notice said they will supposedly call and rearrange appointments. Hope they don't move mine (Friday, 2:30 PM) any further out; I am ready to blow a gasket as it is.

No change in physical ability. Hubby says neighbors have mentioned I seem "barely able to walk." I am The Hunch-Hip of Notre Lame. When I can't stand up straight, which is most of the time, I am bent over at the waist, to the spot where the pain eases off. It's really cute. If I powdered my hair white and wore a pointed black hat, I could go to the Mall and scare kids.

Prolly going to have to see another doc about my right knee very soon. Think I may go ahead after this final follow-up appointment and have my records sent to the other Ortho practice. They're probably not any better or worse, but the one I initially signed up with is on the last of my last nerve.

This is bad, what about an urgent care until they open?
