I am counting down to the long weekend. My romantic V-day was my prep of a tasty dinner, followed by falling asleep on the couch watching TV. DH kindly left this care-worn kitten alone to get in some hard hours of sleep.
Too much junk food at work yesterday; I pitched the nasty cupcake after a bite but enjoyed two chocolates.
We are learning through current events in one class this semester. Hence, I am required to follow the news regularly. I am reminded of that camp fire song from scouting days about going on a bear hunt and encountering obstacles: can't go over it, can't go under it, can't go through it -- I forget all the prepositions and how the pantomime plays out -- kind of like current events. In the end everyone gets killed by the bear?
Ach, Frieda, the tears are essential for healing. Let 'em roll. How great that your old friend was able to be with you to the point of grateful giggles. I will look for grateful giggles in my day.
I'm running a bit behind for personals at the moment, but I hope to get back later.
This thread was started before the dawn of time by Amazons who needed to compare their stats with other Amazons. Over time it grew into a community of incredible women who try to keep their spirits in the clouds and their feet on the ground, moving toward health. Most of us start at 5'7 and go up from there, from young singles to wise and lively elders of the tribe. We welcome newcomers who are willing to be kind and share a bit of their lives.
Nothing new to report here, at this point. DMom has her appointment with the surgeon this afternoon; we will know more then. Fingers crossed that we can just get past this point.
T, I admit that DH and I have been watching the news via the WSJ with very interested eyes. Such crazy stuff going on, is about all I have to say. John Oliver provides some wonderful relief to it all.
Susan, your date and flowers looked wonderful! You look so happy.
Martha, hope DMom is okay.
Frieda, my heart goes out to you. I agree with T - crying is very therapeutic. Gets you back to the giggles. I still remember one time talking about all of it with DS after the dust had settled, and he asked me why I never cried. I told him that I didn't want to cry in front of him, so would cry after he went to bed.
Melinda, it really sounds like you like your new building. That's awesome.
Karla, is everyone surviving in your neck of the woods?

Good morning all. Yes, I had a lovely time last night at dinner - just about perfect. I feel a bit draggy this morning since we had the 8:30 seating and didn't leave until after 10:30, but it was worth it.
Yes, tears turned to giggles can be very therapeutic. One of my favorite quotes of all time from Isak Dinesen is "The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea." I find that very true!
We finally have a meeting scheduled with a realtor this weekend to list our oldest beach house. I hope we can get it sold as is without having to do too much to it. We haven't met the realtor yet, but she seems enthusiastic and says the market is the best its been in a long time. This one has to be sold first before the new one can go on the market.
Not much else new in my world. I'm getting ready to buckle down here at work as I listen to the cars drive by on the rainy streets outside. Glad I'm in here and warm!
I'll have to go onto FB just to see your photo, Susan. I hope house #1 sells quickly!! That would be a relief. Also, I love that quote. Love it. it is so true. All is quiet here. I have a couple of errands that must be run, then home to wo. I have decided to try and get it in during the day whenever possible. The night time wo is tough to do. I plum don't feel like it when the time comes. Just printing off a couple of recipes. One child asked for stir fry tonight. So I will oblige. Have a good day.
Missed my bus, walked to transit center and missed the max train. But made it to dr appt. with 15 min to spare. Rx are good. Do need to increase my exercise tho. She was surprised at my low bp - 92/64. Thought I'd head to a friends but they were just leaving so catch up with at another time. Between hightailing it walking and wandering the transit center platforms, am guessing I walked 2-2.5 miles.
Dh is home and laundry just beeped at me....HUGS to all
