OMG I had not seen that Maxine and it is sooooo true. That man (Maxine is a man) is so frickin right about everything! Yes I'm getting a bit punchy now - too many drugs to keep me awake and then not enough sleep at the end of the day so I'm up sorting receipts all night. My eyes are the major wimp-outs this year. Can't see the dang computer tax program and it won't let me increase the font size... horrible. I'm doing more spreadsheets than tax programs some days just so I can make them big enough to see! I just saw a note Linda sent me and I'd missed it so I'm hoping she and other folks here can bear with me or without me, I guess for another coupla weeks. Then I will need a few days of sleep and another week to ketchup on all the stuff I've left for 3 months - as in everything not taxing! I stop taking the wakemups ON April 30th - hoping that I can close up shop that night. When the last client leaves, Dave and I usually try to bring in some Chinese food and just chow mein down for an hour uninterrupted, but the last two seasons have stretched on into the first week of May when the 30th landed on weekends. I really hate those years because then 'they' wait until May 1 !! If they stretch the cut off til mid June - 'they' wait til mid June!! I wish they would cut off on Feb. 28. Thats enough time for people to get their books together. Everyone after that has been stalling since February. But they won't listen to me, Lots. Gotta scram as it's only 5:30pm so people are going to come by well into the night. They just assume I'm here at night and early morning and all day every day... There isn't any time when the phone don't ring. I'd like to call them back at 4 AM when I'm sorting their stupid receipts, but then I figure they'd call me at that hour too! They're all very very weird. Not normal... like us. Speaking of which... have a great break!! No fair you get your break when I can't play!! Next year you get your break in May so I can play too!! Thanks again for thinking of me. I really love that you actually remember me when I'm off in another country crunching numbers all the time. Tell Suri I'm saving her a big tax bone to chew ... people have been gnawing away at it for awhile, but I'm sure its still got lots of chews left. Miss N. Yew
Hi Lots- Well, you have to try the Bonefish Grille. Our dinner was delicious. I had grouper, Jim had orange roughey and our friends had swordfish and something called wolf fish ( which none of us ever heard of) but I tasted it and it was good. I had a white sangria and even splurged on dessert- a macadamia chocolate brownie with whipped cream. I had prepared by taking a little more insulin before eating and my BG at bedtime was 159. This morning it was 97. Not too bad. After all you only have 1 b-day a year. The weather was really hot !!! It reached 93. Today is better 78.
P.S. Bonefish Grille was a bit pricey, but good for a special occasion. Cat
hey lots, Been really busy. Pete home this weekend for a wedding in Lancaster about 1.5 hrs away. He got home early Friday cuz his boss called him in to talk first thing in the morning. He was given a promotion and a 10% increase to match the new job title.He's pretty happy with that.Spent Friday with him. Joe was golfing.He is still having some emotional issues.Being in Lancaster was hard. Becca told me he had a few tough moments at the wedding. Not only being in Lancaster which is where his friend Ricky had that accident last fall but being at the wedding with thoughts that Ricky who would have been his best man when the time comes ..... is no longer here. He still is struggling especially right after the death of his boss. But we had some good times Friday.
I am doing ok. Work is ok too, some days are bad, just short-staffed. Now my free time is taken up with physical therapy 3X/week. MRI had shown a thickening of the Achilles tendon and a large amt of inflammation. Post surgery I can no longer take NSAIDS so that is a problem. But doing exercises and ultrasound therapy to reduce the inflammation. Still getting shooting pains there when I walk. Weather here has been crazy too. From the high 40's to 89 yesterday. Today so far at 65. I bet the weather has been great down your way. Went on a shopping trip Saturday and bought about 6 new outfits for summer. Always thinking of everyone here .... just busy with work, PT and getting things for my events coming up.Have to take my Mom for appts too. Samantha turns 3 end of April and my D-I-L baby shower in early May. The garden will have to wait. To dry right now to plant and don't have time to be running to water but wanna get some lettuce, scallions and spinach seeds in soon, maybe the weekend.Today is my only day off to do what I need. Have lots of clothes to take to Goodwill for donation and some good stuff to take to a consignment shop. I hope work is going well for you. Enjoy this weather and stay well. = )
Nice bathroom. I wished you lived closer to me to help me to pick out wallpaper for my bathrooms so I am color coordinated. I need a woman's touch for that but I will do my best. I just got done paying the plumber and the tile man.. Now onto the wallpaper lady. Say hi to Suri too.
Hi Lots. Pretty page. You enjoying your vacation? Did you sleep in? TOPS secretary out for 3 months so I have been typing the Minutes and the changes tio the By0laws and it has to be perfect and with my lousy typing I had to redo and redo. Now doing laundry. Russ's BP better but he is feeling lousy. Tom all upset. We both said yesterday the Reader did not have a jacket on...no wonder he was filling in for Tom. Tom just assumed where he did the Readings last week it was it for April. I told hum honest error. I said next month when you get the May Schedule give me the dates too and I will put them in my calendar book. I had my KFC feast. I thought my BG would go sky high...just BG 153 not too bad. SMOKE has gne. NO RAIN> Going to go anywhere or stay home and putter around? Have fun. HUGS,Reed
Hi Lots- Thanks so much for the happy birthday wishes. It is really nice to get good wishes from friends on TuD. I guess the Ladybug is the bug of the day ! Very cute !!! Hope you are doing well. I like the new songs you added to your playlist. Cat
Oh Lots I think I am losing it. I thought you lived in Michigan......I am going to have to make a page of all my friends and where they live, and their real names. How are you?
I went to the doc yest for followup on my respiratory thing and I still have some crackles in my chest. But doing much better. He even snuck in a couple of kidney tests and they looked stable.
In the 70's here today and now we might be on the edge of some fierce storms with tornadoes and hail.
Got just a ton of cleaning done. Trevor may come over tomorrow and help wash windows, depending on the weather. I still want to see The Hunger Games but he is not interested.
I am eating a delicious bosc pear - I like them when they're hard and crunchy, like an apple, and have a very ritualistic way of cutting it before I eat it.
Tomorrow Reed & the boys are going to KFC. Wish it was me.....
Lovely Spring theme on your page ♥ How are you doing? Any weekend plans? ...other than catching up on rest that is ;) All the grandkids are visiting on overnight stays....daughter Danielle is in Toronto, and son & daughter-in-law have plans for the afternoon and evening! The house now seems barren! Might do tea with a friend....go out with hubby....mark papers later.
Take care and be well,
Hey Lots....I love the lovely pic of the Victorian lady ♥ The hectic life style is rampant here as well, and I've learned (albeit slowly) to not get my fingers into too many pies. When I was in my 20s and stupidly ambitious, I would pull all-nighters (I was a Graphic Designer back then).
I could never get away with THAT now....even if I was in the same field!
You're right....Reed's page is not only the home room....but also our springboard into the weekend!
Your page is devoid of design, totally out of character....hope you're not feeling down.
Have a good break...well 2 days IS a break after all!
Hello Lots. Now my mouse is acting up. TGIF and 10 days off I bet you are dancing. Be sure to enjoy it. Russ went to the doctor got excellent answers about his blood pressure. It could be this or could be that or it might have been this why in the h didn;t he say I do not know or refer him. I called my rthopedic surgeon I like him a lot and asked him who his family goes to. He told me. I called him and he will see me April 24th. Yonight will be Italian Night in Reed's Diner. Tom is running in the morning and he wants pasta and my MET A Balls. OMG I cannot type worth a darn. I hope you can make it out. SMOKE still with us no rain in sight. My BG 106. I am pleased with that. I love your page. Have a wonderful vacation. HUGS,Reed
Thanks for the post on my board Lots of. Yes its great finally to get this project done. I had one of those Home Depot insert tub shower stalls which I never liked and put in tile and a new cast iron tub. Thats the way it should have been but now it is right. Then I retiled the upstairs bathroom too as the tile was getting bad and looked bad. Now I have to find wall paper and a wall paper lady to finish off the bathrooms.
Have a great vacation and I hope Suri is doing good. I am not quite ready for a dog yet but think about it from time to time. I know if I went to look I would be coming home with one.

Hi Lots, I hear your under the weather. Hope you'll be feeling better soon. Hope your Easter was good. Mine was very busy.We had a houseful for sure. The dinner was good, even had a few pieces of candy. But I was so tired and worked Mon & Tuesday. So today I slept in to catch up on some much needed rest. Have a support group meeting tonight which I will attend. Having some issues with hair loss. They say during the 3-6 months period this is normal. April 6th was 4 months. So I have a ways to go. They say more protein ....don't know that I can do more. Have some gardening to get started on but its gotten chilly here. We are again doing the community garden so I have a 20ft X 40ft garden to plant. But love getting all the fresh veggies. Although I don't eat much. How is your weight loss and exercising going. I should walk more but come home tired and Friday starting PT for my Achilles Tendinitis. Wishing you feel better soon. xoxoxo
So you have heard of Giving Tuesday, right? Maybe you have seen the hashtag: #GivingTuesday. If you are like me, confused by all of the messages pointing in different directions floating around social media, you may be wondering, “What is Read on! →
