Subject: How do you feel today/ What's going on/ What are you doing ~ thread for February

Written By: nally on 01/31/09 at 3:39 pm

Okay, so it's a little early in the States yet, but I'm gonna give it a start anyway...especially for those in the later time zones.

In the U.S., I guess many people are gonna spend the 1st day watching the big game. I have no plans for that, but maybe I might tune in to the final minute or two.

The month of February will probably go by real fast!

This is especially early since you and I are in Cali and have about 10 more hours of January left to experience!

Howard,

You, our friends in the northeast, and me (among others, just trying to make a point, not ignore anyone) live in the Eastern time zone in the US.  Our friends in England are 5 hrs ahead of us, Henk is probably 7 (but I am not sure so don't quote me) and Australia is 14 hours ahead of us.  They are also experiencing their summer while we have our winter.

Gibbo,

I saw it on ESPN but was on my way out.  Who do you want to win?

I like Nadal's tenacity and never-say-die attitude.....but I want Federer to make history.  I get the feeling that the U.S. isn't as into the tennis as back in the 70's and 80's. I guess that's why both Australia and the U.S are not super powers of tennis anymore. In fact, ALL the countries that host grand slams don't have top 10 players anymore. Blake (US) is probably the highest ranked....

The women still have Serena Williams as the only true champion. That womens final was woeful.........

You're right, I just have no idea why that is.  It seems like we had some pretty decent players, it (for whatever reason) just didn't feel like it did when we watched Connors, McEnroe and Borg (yes, I know he's from Sweden, but they were tennis' equivalent to the "Big 3" don't you think?)  Arthur Ashe was also great to watch and a gentleman on the court (as far as I remember).  For women, Chris Evert, Billie Jean King, and Yvonne Goolagong (your countrywoman, right?) are who I remember.

I remember the final days of Margaret Court (the leader in womens majors with 24  :o) and John Newcombe. They are both Australian and before that we had Fre Stlooe, Rod Laver, Tony Roche and Ken Rosewall. Those were the golden years of Australian tennis.

I can't believe you and Howard don't want tomorrow's lottery number!  How about the winner of the Super Bowl?

lol Too cute.  I don't play the lottery.  As for the Superbowl, I know who I am supporting, but will be happy watching the score unfold.  Thanks for the offer though!  :)  Now that you mention those names, some of them are familiar, though not all of them.  Our countries had some good players/years "back in the day" didn't they?  What do you suppose happened?  I remember when "everyone" thought Agassi and Sampras were going to bring the game back and also thought Becker could do something.  Yet somehow they never took off the way their predecessors did....(just my opinion of course)

Just been down town to buy a balloon for my Dad, man it is cvold out there. We are waiting for a snow storm to hit.

Today we are going over to my parents for my Dad's birthday meal. His birthday was in November but he was too sick for an kind of party then so it got cancelled. We all kind of forgot about that then my Mum suddenly decided to have it this weekend. So I have bought him a birthday balloon so he can be like the queen, with 2 birthdays.  ;D

Hmmm...So nobody noticed I was AWOL? ??? :( :\'(


I went through the most excrutiating pains I have ever experienced last Thursday. Well, it all started in the night before, when I woke up because of the pain - but it subsided within half an hour or so, so I slept on and I went to work on Thursday as usual. Then the pain returned around noon, susbsided again somewhat and I felt like maybe I could make it through the day. But around 4 o'clock the pain intensified and I decided I'd better go see a doctor. By that time I also started to vomit, so my colleagues realized I wasn't joking (like I ever am!).
One of my colleagues drove me to the hospital (after we'd seen my home doctor) where I had to undergo the usual tests before I was finally diagnosed with kidney stones. They had to give me a double dose of painkillers before the pain subsided.
I hardly ate that evening, and I didn't sleep very well too (not because of the pain, 'cause I was free of that during the night. It must've been the unusual circumstances for me, as I had never been hospitalized before.).

Friday started off well (without pain), though I still had no appetite. In the cause of the day the pain started to intensify again to a point where it was hardly bearable anymore. If you ever had a kidney stone, you know what I'm talking about. You can't sit, can't walk, can't lie down, can't stand... It made me wanna bang my head into a solid brick wall, I can tell you. Luckily I was given an extra dose of painkillers, which immediately kicked in. After that I also felt like eating and (most importantly) drinking again.
I had a good meal on Friday evening, followed by what could've been a decent night if it hadn't been for the pain of others on the ward. I really felt for this one lady, who had to lie down flat after being operated on a double slipped disk (among other things). She must've gone through a hell, not being able to move at all, and with agonizing pains and itching everywhere.

On Saturday I had no more pain. Initially because of the painkillers, but later that day it was decided that I'd be taken off medication to check the effect. Well, lo and behold... the pain stayed away! :D
So with the pain gone, there wasn't any reason anymore to keep me in hospital. So I left hospital Saturday evening, and spent the following night with my brother and sister (just to be on the safe side, in case the pain returned). Luckily, the pain has stayed away. I'm guessing my kidney stone must have reached my bladder by now (and it may be even further down south).

This evening I went home again, and tomorrow, I have to call the hospital to make an appointment for a check-up, to see if the stone's really gone. Well, I don't feel it anymore, so I'm thinking it has to be.

Thanks and karma, ladies! :)

I never passed out because of the pain, but I know I was hoping I would at some points.
The only time I felt a pain closely similar to this was when I had an inflammation of the root canal - and I've had that twice.

Reminds me: didn't we have a thread about the most horrendous pains we ever experienced somewhere...? ???

Aw Henk, I hope you feel better soon and that the Pain stays away for good!  Karma

See I complain bout something, and somebody always has it worse.  My life is just full of little annoyances right now, but they can be frustrating.... :-[


By the way kid is fine - playing and etc... never had a fever, don't know what caused her to be sick, just was.  Funny thing is she blamed it on the cat.  "Mom Java threw up in my bed"  , I thought it was odd, but a furball who knows.... Go in the room and there is stuff all over her pillow and her and such :P  I told her I didn't think it was Java, quote "Well I don't know who threw up in my bed then  ::)"  I am not sure if she was afraid she was going to get into trouble, we have been trying to encourage them to try and make it to the bathroom ( OR atleast the hardwood floor instead of the bed)....  Oh well..

My arm has red welts, luckily it was just the water and not grease, hurts though.

Well we are still having superbowl party, everyone decided they would come anyway :-\\  So I have had to clean, grocery shop, cook and now doing laundry....  Hope it is worth it

I wouldn't mind not watching the football, I only watch for the commercials ::)

February has always been my least favorite month.  Not the end of winter, not the beginning of spring. I just wait for it to be over.   8-P



Me Too,then comes March which is my birthday month.

Hmmm...So nobody noticed I was AWOL? ??? :( :\'(


I went through the most excrutiating pains I have ever experienced last Thursday. Well, it all started in the night before, when I woke up because of the pain - but it subsided within half an hour or so, so I slept on and I went to work on Thursday as usual. Then the pain returned around noon, susbsided again somewhat and I felt like maybe I could make it through the day. But around 4 o'clock the pain intensified and I decided I'd better go see a doctor. By that time I also started to vomit, so my colleagues realized I wasn't joking (like I ever am!).
One of my colleagues drove me to the hospital (after we'd seen my home doctor) where I had to undergo the usual tests before I was finally diagnosed with kidney stones. They had to give me a double dose of painkillers before the pain subsided.
I hardly ate that evening, and I didn't sleep very well too (not because of the pain, 'cause I was free of that during the night. It must've been the unusual circumstances for me, as I had never been hospitalized before.).

Friday started off well (without pain), though I still had no appetite. In the cause of the day the pain started to intensify again to a point where it was hardly bearable anymore. If you ever had a kidney stone, you know what I'm talking about. You can't sit, can't walk, can't lie down, can't stand... It made me wanna bang my head into a solid brick wall, I can tell you. Luckily I was given an extra dose of painkillers, which immediately kicked in. After that I also felt like eating and (most importantly) drinking again.
I had a good meal on Friday evening, followed by what could've been a decent night if it hadn't been for the pain of others on the ward. I really felt for this one lady, who had to lie down flat after being operated on a double slipped disk (among other things). She must've gone through a hell, not being able to move at all, and with agonizing pains and itching everywhere.

On Saturday I had no more pain. Initially because of the painkillers, but later that day it was decided that I'd be taken off medication to check the effect. Well, lo and behold... the pain stayed away! :D
So with the pain gone, there wasn't any reason anymore to keep me in hospital. So I left hospital Saturday evening, and spent the following night with my brother and sister (just to be on the safe side, in case the pain returned). Luckily, the pain has stayed away. I'm guessing my kidney stone must have reached my bladder by now (and it may be even further down south).

This evening I went home again, and tomorrow, I have to call the hospital to make an appointment for a check-up, to see if the stone's really gone. Well, I don't feel it anymore, so I'm thinking it has to be.





Henk,hope you feel better. :)

Sorry, Henk.  We are hardly ever on at the same time, so I didn't think anything was out of the ordinary *hugs*

At any rate, I'm very sorry to hear that you have had to go through all that.  I have never had them personally, but have heard that they cause unbelievable pain.  I am glad the pain is gone and hope it stays that way.  Let us know what you find out at the check up.

See I complain bout something, and somebody always has it worse.  My life is just full of little annoyances right now, but they can be frustrating.... :-[


By the way kid is fine - playing and etc... never had a fever, don't know what caused her to be sick, just was.  Funny thing is she blamed it on the cat.  "Mom Java threw up in my bed"   , I thought it was odd, but a furball who knows.... Go in the room and there is stuff all over her pillow and her and such :P  I told her I didn't think it was Java, quote "Well I don't know who threw up in my bed then  ::)"  I am not sure if she was afraid she was going to get into trouble, we have been trying to encourage them to try and make it to the bathroom ( OR atleast the hardwood floor instead of the bed)....  Oh well..

My arm has red welts, luckily it was just the water and not grease, hurts though.

Well we are still having superbowl party, everyone decided they would come anyway :-\\  So I have had to clean, grocery shop, cook and now doing laundry....  Hope it is worth it



Sorry things are still running rough for you.  Glad it is ok that I laughed about the cat part.  Why don't you ditch and come over here.  You don't have to cook, clean, do laundry or shop and can enjoy the commercials to your heart's content.

Hope your arm feels better by now 2kidsami and that you have a successful SuperBowl party.  You would think that living in Pittsburgh (as I do), I would be delirious with excitement and having my own party (or going to any number of parties at one of the local watering holes) but alas, I am one of the few in this city that don't really care much (although it is cute how they have decorated the city in the excitement of the big game).  (Various statues have Steeler colored scarves wrapped around them.)

Henk, I'm sorry for your excruciating pain and for your hospital stay.  I hope all is better now.  You have been missed.

Hope Gis' fiance's grandmother gets better soon.

As for me, well, hubby had severe flu symptoms on Friday night/Saturday morning...basically stuff was either coming up or going out both ends (sorry...trying to be delicate)  8-P  He passed out after the sixth time throwing up, and because we are not familiar with the Veterans System hospitals (there are three in the local area) I took him to the wrong one which did not have an emergency room (other then for psych patients).
By the time we got to the right hospital, he was feeling better, and we decided to hold off going to the hospital for awhile.  At least now we know which one to go to.  Basically we have both slept the rest of the weekend.  I only got sick a tiny bit as compared to his ordeal.  But we are both feeling decidedly better today.  It was a really nice warm day today (up to 40 degrees Fahrenheit/ 4 degrees Celsius) but we were both wiped out from our misadventures so we stayed in again today.  I did open the curtain though, hubby opened the door to let a little bit of fresh air in.  Thankfully the cats did not go strolling outside.

In other news, Mom had fluid drained off her lung at the doctor's office Friday.  She coughed just as the needle was going in and it deflated her lung partially!  They wanted to put her in the hospital right then, but she is one of the most stubborn women I know.  She refused because she did not know the hospital (not known anybody that was ever in there).   ::)  Because she lives so close to the Ohio / West Virginia border, her West Virginia lung doctor has license and priviledges to practice only in WV, but she insists that she wants to go to the hospital in her hometown in Ohio.  She says "Well they have lung doctors everywhere!"  Yes, mom, but I doubt he can just admit her to a hospital in a state he has no license in.  Parents are frustrating to no end.   She wonders why she isn't feeling better by now.  I can only hope she changes her mind and goes to this other hospital or somehow it works out the way she wants.  I can't seem to convince her either way.

I promise I will have cheerier news at some point.

No...you're not alone. I'm not really enthusiastic about pro football myself, but my dad was when he was growing up. Football and baseball are his two favorite sports. Anyway, since there hasn't been a pro football franchise in L.A. since the Rams left in the mid-1990s, I haven't really cared about football one way or the other. :-\\

The story about the cat reminds me of my sister and her mother-in-law. My sister has had thyroid problems for ever. Her dog developed a thyroid condition and her mother-in-law pointed to my sister and said, "The dog got it from you."  :D ;D ;D ;D

^ Kidney stones are excruciating.  Have they told you what you should or should not eat, I think they are caused by calcium deposits, so they suggest you stay away from dairy.  If they kick up don't waste time and get t the doctors.

It seems that February is off to a questionable start for most here.  Never been my favorite month.  I suggest everyone just keep alert, one eye over the shoulder and all that.  Hopefully we will make it through.

So with the pain gone, there wasn't any reason anymore to keep me in hospital. So I left hospital Saturday evening, and spent the following night with my brother and sister (just to be on the safe side, in case the pain returned). Luckily, the pain has stayed away. I'm guessing my kidney stone must have reached my bladder by now (and it may be even further down south).

This evening I went home again, and tomorrow, I have to call the hospital to make an appointment for a check-up, to see if the stone's really gone. Well, I don't feel it anymore, so I'm thinking it has to be.





I feel your pain, Henk. I've had 2 bouts of kidney stones...and the pain was HORRIBLE! Please feel better soon. :)

Thanks for all the good wishes, I appreciate it. So far 2009 just keeps on getting worse and worse.  :-\\

Anyway Grandma is still in hospital and they are running lots of tests.As a young woman she had Tuberculosis and it damaged her lungs, the meds she has taken over the years for that have now damaged her heart apparently!?! It was sheer fluke that Himself's aunt happened to call in and found her and called an ambulance. She is one of these old ladies who 'doesn't like to trouble anyone'. Very frustrating! All her immediate family are over 6 hours drive away so it's not like any of us can keep an eye on her.

Other than that it's snowing like mad out there so I hope i can get home from work today. In the U.K we don't do snow! half a dozen flakes and everything is cancelled!  ::)

^ Kidney stones are excruciating.  Have they told you what you should or should not eat, I think they are caused by calcium deposits, so they suggest you stay away from dairy.  If they kick up don't waste time and get t the doctors.



Haven't had any diet suggestions yet, but I have a check-up with the specialist coming up, and I expect him to give me some advice.


Henk, I'm sorry all this happened and I hope you never have a bout with that kind of pain again!  :-\\


Thanks.  :) I hope to stay free of pain as well.

Thank you ladies. I think I am probably one of the few people who hates football but can watch a game (when I am forced to) and know what is going on.

One time I was forced to watch a game and something happened and I said, "Oh, that is a touch back." The people I was with said, "No, that not a touch back" when the announcer said it was...yup that's right, a touch back. The people I was with looked at me and wondered how the hell I knew that when I hate football. Truth be told, I was forced to watch football every Sunday when I was married to my first husband. That alone tells you why I hate it so.

I think he did.  Whatever the 'bad' answer is is what happened.

I don't know if Connecticut Chuckles saw his shadow or not but probably did because it was sunny most of the day.  I wasn't going to get up to see him at 6.00 a.m. though

Just got a call from Sig.  A friend of ours has a daughter with cerebral palsy and lives in a group home.  They got a call today that she "passed away" at 6 this morning.  They are on their way home from Florida.  She was only in her 30s and hadn't been sick.  We are waiting to find out what happened.  These are two of the nicest people you could ever meet.  Always there with a helping hand without even being asked.  It is a shame, a damn shame   :(




My condolences Danoota.  :)

You don't have to stop altogether.  Maybe put in a few less hours volunteering, see what happens

I guess that sounds good,now that I'm out of state programs altogether,I can basically volunteer whenever cause when I was in a state program they wanted you to volunteer at least 2 times a week which for me was Thursday and Friday but now that I no longer attend state programs I can create my own schedule.

So I was sorta right, it involved a plow and a person plowing.  I remember the first time I had to plow snow for the city, they put me in and turned me loose with my route - besides taking out a lot of curbage at the library I had to plow (with all sorts of Islands in it), they gave me a cul de sac where all the houses had mailboxes (notice I said HAD)- Yep I think I took out everyone of them - needless to say my crew chief got a few phone calls - he didn't properly train me so what could he say ::)

This is a precautionary measure, following my trip to the hospital a week ago. I had a kidney stone, yes, but the photos taken earlier also showed some other unidentified spots. Most likely nothing to worry about, but just to be on the safe side...


I won't be seeing my urologist until March 5, which is good news in my book.

Good luck with the MRI scan, at least that part is painless, although noisy! 

I had all kinds of scans, I don't know if the MRI scan showed anything unusual, though. It was at an unusual time last fall, when I suffered injuries to my neck.  Some turned out to be permanent. :-\\

I had an MRI done when I slipped my disc (the second time :-[ )  They asked me if I wanted an open one.  I said heck no, give me a closed one and let me doze off. ;D

The attendant thought I was weird.  I've heard people with bipolar disorder respond well to MRI.  I should have sent them a thank you card. ;D

I just got back home. It's snowing a blizzard again here and I battled out the door and part way to the train station and thought what the hell am I doing? so I came back home! Of course now I'm back in the house it has eased up conciderably so I'll see how the day progresses and maybe go in later. Snow is forcast all day though.....

I'm back (in one piece). :)

MRI scan was a piece of cake... ::) Especially with the music I got on my headphones.  8)
Oh well, you have to lie still and after a while your arms and hands get numb, but that's about it. I had no feelings of claustrophobia or anxiety lying there. And the radiologists really were a sight for sore eyes...  :-* :D
I was a little nervous beforehand, but thankfully I didn't have to wait (so no time to worry). In all, it took about half an hour.

Now I have to wait for the results. I assume they'll contact me if they've spotted anything serious; else I'll hear the verdict from my urologist in just under a month.

In the UK that's the standard but not everywhere!  The husband of a friend of mine (here in the US) went in to have an EEG scan on Monday and on Tuesday the consultant called and left a message on the answerphone that he should call.  Panic stations!!  Turns out he just wanted to say the scan went well and he'd get the results next Monday (i.e. the appointment they'd already made).   ::)

I hate professional development days - and trust me us teachers do not get to go shopping!!!!  It is supposed to be an aid to help us teach better, the state and administration tell us all the ways we are failing kids and we need to do these things differently (usually more paperwork, nothing to do with teaching) - and I am soooooo stressed out by the end of the day I am throwing up and in a horrible mood (my husband does not even try and talk to me about them anymore) :-[

The problem here is that they aren't mandatory, and attendance isn't taken.  Usually it is just the newest teachers, and the most committed teachers, the ones who need it most are in the mall.  It pisses me off.

Well I can say that 1/2 of ours are mandatory and 1/2 are not.  I do not go to the ones that are not mandatory (I forfeit my "bonus" pay which I would only get $50 after I took out Childcare) anymore either.  The administration wants to have us play leadership and bonding games, and does not give us anymore time to prepare for our students.  Now with NCLB we now look at our "testing" data and try to come up with reasons why our students got questions wrong on the tests.  Why can we not look at what we got right???  It is frustrating for all.  Sorry venting

Wonderful day today.  Weather sunny and 50 degrees F.

Started at 7:30 as that is when the "girls" and their friends they had over decided to start giggling again (there is no seeping in at my house - I can not wait till these two want to sleep away the day when in high school - IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN ;D).  Made breakfast.

Hubby feeling a bit better, we went out and fixed fence so the cows could come home to calve. Nice to be outside in just jeans and sweatshirt. Did some much needed cleaning to a rabbit hutch, and played with the Newfie without freezing to death.

Went shopping and got my new glasses - yeah!!!

Just really really nice to be outside without the tremendous discomfort of the cold.  I LOVE SUNSHINE ;D

I think my blahs went away as well

Spare a thought and prayer for the communities in the State of Victoria  (Australia) who have been enduring some awful heat and have now been devasted by fire storms. Today, many died and even more homes were gutted. The death toll is presently at 67 and rising rapidly. Melbourne, the capital of Victoria endured 46.7 degree celsuis heat (which is a staggering 116 farenheit).

Not certain if this news made it overseas....... I am thankful I live 2000 miles away from this unfolding tradgedy. 1000 miles north of me they are enduring the worst flooding in 40 years....

This is part of her police statement

In a seven-page statement to police, Stacy DeBeer said she's had eight
pregnancies. She has two living children; three pregnancies ended in abortion,
and she gave up one baby for adoption. She is accused of killing two other
babies shortly after their births.

Stacy tearfully admitted she had put one child up for adoption because she and
her husband could only afford to raise two children.

Ninny, I hope you can come to terms with this news.  There was obviously nothing that you could do for her, as you didn't even know she was involved in the whole incident.  If she was married and all of this was happening, where was her husband for help????  Is he now in jail too?  Hopefully the child that was adopted will never seek out his parents - this maybe a hard blow if one was to find out.

Hugs, and karma

Melbourne, the capital of Victoria endured 46.7 degree celsuis heat (which is a staggering 116 farenheit).

Not certain if this news made it overseas....... I am thankful I live 2000 miles away from this unfolding tradgedy. 1000 miles north of me they are enduring the worst flooding in 40 years....
Prayers coming your way guys....  mother nature can be so wonderful, and so cruel at the same time :-\\

Ninny, I hope you can come to terms with this news.  There was obviously nothing that you could do for her, as you didn't even know she was involved in the whole incident.  If she was married and all of this was happening, where was her husband for help????  Is he now in jail too?  Hopefully the child that was adopted will never seek out his parents - this maybe a hard blow if one was to find out.

Hugs, and karma

Thanks :) I'm sure once the shock wears off,I'll see things in a different light. I know she is a blood cousin(2nd) but I did not even know her(her parents divorced when she was young,and her and her brother lived with the mom) still you just don't think someone,not just a relative would be capable of such evils..Why didn't they use birth control was the first thing i thought.
The article which was in 2004 said they had 2 kids which are living with relatives,they were 8 & 7 at the time so they would be about 12-13 now.
Her husband Brian got released in Sept 2008..this was his sentence
Brian DeBeer, convicted of hindering prosecution for entombing one of the two babies in concrete, was sentenced to the maximum — two and a third to seven years.

I am feeling terrible right now, and quite a bit stupid.

Yesterday picked out a gorgeous rug for our living room, and it was at Target (bonus - I love that store), the rug was reasonably price for a 8' X10' .  I just unrolled it this morning and it looks wonderful, perfect size, and color (with reds, cream, and golds flowers)....    I have been looking at it and admiring (yah I done good).

Who in the hell with chronic asthma and allergies (had some allergic reaction to all 72 allergens they tested me to) BUYS A WOOL RUG.  Yep I am in the midst of an allergy attack - I noticed my eyes itching, and then my face, now sneezing and blowing my nose.  Look at the tag- yep 100% wool.  :-[ 

Man do you think I could take this back - it is all unrolled and everything?????  Mam why do you want to return, because I am an idiot and the only tag I looked at was the price tag :P

I AM SUCH AN IDIOT

The shower yesterday was ok. It was WAY up north in the middle of nowhere. It took us at least 2 & 1/2 hours to get there. We hardly knew anyone there but Carlos' youngest & our 5 year old granddaughter were there. The other two kids were WAY late and we left before they arrived so we didn't see them (but we saw them the other day). Of course Carlos' ex was there. Even though she just drives me insane, I have to admit that she has never been anything but nice to me. And I appreciate the fact that she does refer to me as the little ones' grandmother. We did stop for dinner on the way home.

Ummmm mam, weren't you allergic to wool before you bought the rug????  I don't think we can return it. 

I don't care if they give me only "store credit" - I will spend it there.  Right now 350 - down the drain; I knew I  should have bought the one for $150 - but it was not near so cool ::) ::)

Lots of big stores like that just let you return stuff without you giving a reason.  I had to return some stuff to Target a while back and I don't think they cared why I was returning it.  Admittedly it was more like $20 and not a few hundred...

they probably won't ask that but if they do tell them you didn't know.

Honestly I bet you can return it... you can return virtually everything... I worked in retail for 20 years... I am the master of returning things. the only time its hard to do is if you don't have the receipt.  you bought it yesterday.... I think its worth a try.

Girl, you can definitely take it back.
Heck - even store credit will be no problem. I think they just put it on a gift card for you and away you go.

If they try and give you a hard time, exaggerate a little bit and say that it is the kids who are allergic and you had no clue until this morning... but I doubt you will have a single problem! ;)

Ok - take it back (we will do, as soon as hubby gets done moving cows and the bale feeder), no negotiating, don't mention allergies until they ask (and then the whole damn family is sick with it), and I can take all my books back to Barnes and Nobel (wow I like that, a library in the mall - WITH STARBUCKS - YEAH ME).  Do I have all the rules straight????

You are too funny- but yeah you have all the rules straight... there has only been one change in the rules and this is fairly recent...you have to have a receipt now to return stuff... before- without the receipt you'd get store credit...hell Santa Barbara doesn't have a lot of stores so I would just pick a store that sold the same item to take it back knowing I bought the item somewhere else (or more likely) my mom bought it in AZ at some store we don't have... now I can't do that.

Slight variation in rule - receipts. 

1. Found receipt wadded up into a ball in pocket of hubbies clothes.  - CHECK

2. Keep receipts for all books purchased at B & N and use them for bookmarks.  I will have them to take back book (receipt acts as a make shift library card) - got it;D

A friend of mine in Texas... his father had bought this stereo equipment in Florida, but it wasn't what my friend was looking for. He went online to see if Walmart sold it. They sure did.

Borders used to take back any DVD as long as they sold it but recently they stopped doing that and now you have to have a receipt. I returned all my DVDs to Borders (it should have worked in their favor because I'd get gift cards and wind up spending more money there anyway)

Took the rug back....  We had it wrapped in trash bags and saran wrap so it would not get damaged on the truck ride back - salt splatters etc...

Went in with the rug, said I needed to return it, it turns out that I am allergic to it - the attendant (OH my god, honey your face is so swollen and red, you look like you are uncomfortable).... Enough said, took it back and never even looked at it twice - so someone could have puked on it and no one would have known :D

Got the other rug we were looking at, I am not allergic to it, but it does not look near as good as the other one  :\'(

A friend at work just sent me a racist email.  A pretty good friend actually.  I'm so disappointed in her.  I replied to it...actually replied to all...saying that the email was a disgusting piece of trash and that she should be ashamed of herself for sending it out.  But I am just depressed now.  First of all, I'm sad that people are sending things like this around.  And second, I know I can never really be her friend after this.  I mean, I will be civil...but how can I possibly look at her the same way ever again?

Today isn't even half over for me and it's the day from hell (carryover from Saturday morning ACT I guess).  First we had THAT discussion, but since it wasn't with Kristen (boss), it didn't go too bad.  At least everyone else (not that it matters) believes it was the student who was at fault, not me (though I agree that I should have made sure it was on the campus calendar).

Then, I get a call from my boss about an email a co-worker (for whom I did 22 or 24 reports already) sent to her, including quotes from the email I sent to him.  I didn't think I was rude or anything (certainly wasn't how I meant it, I like the guy), but I obviously didn't make my thoughts very clear and I accidentally (really, it was unintentional) gave him some incorrect information about statistics that I could and could not run on his data.  Made reference to having this same situation last year and how we resolved it, but again, something must have gotten lost in translation.  She probably wouldn't (or maybe she would have, I don't know anymore) have come down on me so hard except I think she is still stewing about Saturday.  I also left her a voice mail that I will be a little late to our meeting (not just her and I).  I don't want to go at all and in fact, didn't want to come in today period.

I'm so grateful I have Friday off.  I would much rather clean my parents' house than deal with this.  I'm one of those unfortunate people who is sensitive to criticism (try not to be, but how I'm wired).  I've always tried to please people (well, ok, mostly just my parents and bosses) and when I get chastised I feel like I let everyone down.  I feel stupid even admitting it, but I'm hoping by getting it down here, I can let the incidences go and get on with my work.

I will be so glad when this day is over!  :(    (It started out so great, too---I kicked butt on the elliptical this morning--had first mile down before 12.30 and was able to do 2.37 miles in 30 mins)  At least I have fitness class after work.  That will help.

Well it's funny because I just walked into the lunch room and she was the only one in there.  She smiled and acted like nothing happened, so I acted cordially but not overly friendly...and slowly people trickled in.  People who had seen my rant.  And they were all extremely tense.  And finally she looked around and said "what's going on?"  And one of my friends said "well aren't you going to say anything?"  and she said "about what?"  She hadn't even seen my reply!  But everyone else had.  It was kind of funny actually.  So I just said "you need to go and check your email."

I tried Shout gel stain remover.  And oxi-clean granules in the washer afterwards.  Followed by rubbing detergent in and washing again.  Perhaps I'll try white vinegar next.

Of course I slipped up by not washing it last night.  ::)

You probably can get Vanish (but it might be called something else just have the same coloured packet).  I probably had a voucher for money off the stuff I bought!

I am a stain cleaning freak - I can not stand stains and take great pride in removing just about any stain. 

Pasta sauce - I am taking that it is tomato base (like spaghetti, or marinara sauce)

Next - is it meat sauce or just a marinara? If it is a meat sauce you need to be able to cut through the oil/fats too, so apply an waterless oil remover.


I use only 3 types of stain remover - SHOUT SPRAY (gel is junk, does not work and a waste of money; Shout Advance Spray is not too bad though for set in stains), TECH Stain Remover (White and Red Bottle with Black Squirt Lid - AWSOME STUFF  especially for blood and protein stains, and GOOP (Hand cleaner, that maintenance mechanics and such use - removes grease and grass stains like a breeze).

Apply and rub into fabric, make sure it sits for atleast 20 minutes with stain remover on it before laundering.  Launder on cold (my washer has a presoak cycle that I use for stains), and I use biz with my laundry detergent, and check clothes after laundering - DO NOT Dry if stain is still there - take another go at it.

This is my method, and I am very anal about laundry. My husband is scared of laundry, if he does it and I find stains - he says I look like something really evil (and I really try not to be).  I sort clothes into about 10 different ways, and I pretreat everything as I sort (or at the time of stain).  I also like Shout wipes, Tech now has wipes as well - but in a big jar (not handy for purse), tide to go pens..... 

I will stop now, I can keep going on and on - I am really obsessed - hope this helps

I will be so glad when this day is over!   :(     (It started out so great, too---I kicked butt on the elliptical this morning--had first mile down before 12.30 and was able to do 2.37 miles in 30 mins)  At least I have fitness class after work.  That will help.



I'm sorry you had a shytty day!  >:(  And with regards to the guy who emailed your boss...if he'd learned how to do his job in the first place you wouldn't have made a mistake this time....so its all his fault.... he should have come to you for clarification not run to your boss...  he sounds a lot like someone I work with.  >:(  >:(

Well it's funny because I just walked into the lunch room and she was the only one in there.  She smiled and acted like nothing happened, so I acted cordially but not overly friendly...and slowly people trickled in.  People who had seen my rant.  And they were all extremely tense.  And finally she looked around and said "what's going on?"  And one of my friends said "well aren't you going to say anything?"  and she said "about what?"  She hadn't even seen my reply!  But everyone else had.  It was kind of funny actually.  So I just said "you need to go and check your email."

That's awful Erin.   :\'(


okay you've probably already answered but in case you didn't...... .

I am a stain cleaning freak - I can not stand stains and take great pride in removing just about any stain. 

Pasta sauce - I am taking that it is tomato base (like spaghetti, or marinara sauce)

Next - is it meat sauce or just a marinara? If it is a meat sauce you need to be able to cut through the oil/fats too, so apply an waterless oil remover.


I use only 3 types of stain remover - SHOUT SPRAY (gel is junk, does not work and a waste of money; Shout Advance Spray is not too bad though for set in stains), TECH Stain Remover (White and Red Bottle with Black Squirt Lid - AWSOME STUFF  especially for blood and protein stains, and GOOP (Hand cleaner, that maintenance mechanics and such use - removes grease and grass stains like a breeze).

Apply and rub into fabric, make sure it sits for atleast 20 minutes with stain remover on it before laundering.  Launder on cold (my washer has a presoak cycle that I use for stains), and I use biz with my laundry detergent, and check clothes after laundering - DO NOT Dry if stain is still there - take another go at it.

This is my method, and I am very anal about laundry. My husband is scared of laundry, if he does it and I find stains - he says I look like something really evil (and I really try not to be).  I sort clothes into about 10 different ways, and I pretreat everything as I sort (or at the time of stain).  I also like Shout wipes, Tech now has wipes as well - but in a big jar (not handy for purse), tide to go pens..... 

I will stop now, I can keep going on and on - I am really obsessed - hope this helps

       




I take it back..... you are  WAY more OCD about laundry than I am  ;D  when my shirts have stains they become work out shirts or night shirts  ;D

I was super busy at work today and fell three pages behind in this thread.... that stuff about the fire is awful- glad someone is in custody tho....


As for me:

The officers went to Baja Fresh for lunch...mexican- not my favorite so usually I won't get that- but we were so busy they didn't really have time to make a trip for me so I asked them to bring some grilled chicken on a flour tortilla.....simple right? 

Nope they brought back a soft chicken taco no salsa..... so of course it was loaded with cheese....

Okay fine-

then the other set of officers managed to go some place for lunch this was two hours later. The place they went has pre packaged sandwiches I've had before and they aren't bad) so I ask them to bring me a tuna sandwich.... instead they brought me a tuna melt.  >:( 

He's like---- well can't you just take the cheese off?  Um...what part of melt don't you understand... so I worked an 11 hour shift (no break) on one cup of yogurt.

They *finally* had something about the fires in Australia on the U.K news last night. I was telling Himself about it but neither of us had seen anything on the news prior to that.Too focused on all the snow and ice we have had here i think. We now have flooding after all the rain yesterday and the snow melting.

Today isn't even half over for me and it's the day from hell (carryover from Saturday morning ACT I guess).  First we had THAT discussion, but since it wasn't with Kristen (boss), it didn't go too bad.  At least everyone else (not that it matters) believes it was the student who was at fault, not me (though I agree that I should have made sure it was on the campus calendar).

Then, I get a call from my boss about an email a co-worker (for whom I did 22 or 24 reports already) sent to her, including quotes from the email I sent to him.  I didn't think I was rude or anything (certainly wasn't how I meant it, I like the guy), but I obviously didn't make my thoughts very clear and I accidentally (really, it was unintentional) gave him some incorrect information about statistics that I could and could not run on his data.  Made reference to having this same situation last year and how we resolved it, but again, something must have gotten lost in translation.  She probably wouldn't (or maybe she would have, I don't know anymore) have come down on me so hard except I think she is still stewing about Saturday.  I also left her a voice mail that I will be a little late to our meeting (not just her and I).  I don't want to go at all and in fact, didn't want to come in today period.

We had a power cut last night.  I was in bed reading when suddenly the light went out.  It's always a bit freaky when you're on your own.

Then one of the smoke alarms started beeping.  ::)  Luckily I had a torch (flashlight) next to the bed, so I could go downstairs to get a chair and a battery and fix the alarm.  I don't know when the power came back on, but the dishwasher didn't restart.

I just phoned a friend about something and she invited me over for a coffee so I'm going over soon.  I also need to pick up groceries and plan dinner.

I know I should have taken him sooner, but his teeth are pretty perfect.  At his age, I had like three silver caps on cavities already.  This boy brushes twice a day, rinses with kids mouthwash, hardly eats sweets, and drinks about two gallons of milk a week.  His teeth are whiter than mine. ;D

okay you've probably already answered but in case you didn't...... .


and then what happened?




Well then she replied to the email and said:

(Copy and paste)

"I apologize to you. I didn’t mean to offend you and I refuse to get into a discussion about this with you.  I didn’t write it."

Which of course totally pissed me off, because even if she didn't write it, she sent it.  So whatever.  But I didn't reply, because I had already said everything I needed to say to her.  (I started a thread about it in the politics section - I'm not sure if you saw it.)

Anyway, I was sitting here working, and about half an hour later, she came into my office with tears in her eyes, all choked up, and said something like "you know, life is too short to get that upset over a stupid email."  And then she turned around and walked out.  And I just kind of started laughing because honestly, if you're crying...it sort of trumps your "don't get so upset" argument.   

I haven't seen her today.  And I don't care if I do.  I'd love it if she would try to defend herself or fight with me because I would squash her like a bug, but I don't think she will.  If she's stupid enough to send and email like that, I don't see her having any sort of rational argument that can defend it.

See what you need to do is borrow a LARGE gun off one of your policeman friends and go 'NO CHEESE', that should work. They do keep buying you cheese based foods don't they??  ;D

Funny thing about Gis' comment is I totally thought about it. It's not like we haven't had the discussion about my cheese intolerance before.  In fact some the guys joke about it.... Hey Q I'm going here.... you want a triple cheese omelete?  but he's joking! I worked with this corporal for a year and so he not only constantly remembered about the cheese he actually knew what I ordered from different restaurants so he'd just bring me my favorite dish.  But now I have a new crew and its like come one guys... I tell you everyday no cheese how long before it sinks in!

You're like me Ash- you're sort of hoping for the battle and disappointed when it doesn't come.  ;D


The "I didn't write it" is the lamest defense ever because I actually don't blame the original author so much as I blame the people who continue to keep it alive... if a guy writes something hateful and no one passes it on then it dies with him but continuing to give the thing life does far more damage than the actual act of writing them in the first place.... 

I haven't seen your thread - I don't venture too deep in the politics board.....I only go when some one points something out or I accidentally trip over a post and fall in!  ;)

He seems to be reacting to the meds in a positive way...so hopefully he will get better very soon!


Oh dear!  Hope he's bright eyed and bushy tailed again soon!

Thanks for the care and concern, guys! Vaughn is starting to feel a lot better today. He's still at home, but he has eaten and has been up and running around. I have a followup visit with his pediatrician tomorrow, but I can see he is on the road to recovery. He is crossing his fingers that he will be allowed to go to school on Friday for his Valentine's Day party. ;D

I just spoke to Dai on the phone.  He was calling from Tesco's (supermarket) in our home town in the UK.  He was just checking if I wanted anything buying, but then he refused to pick up some roast chicken for dinner!

Well if Himself can last the week they will keep him on for 4 months! Result. He says it's all very technical (it's an engineering company) but he thinks he'll be ok.  :)

More good news today. A good friend of mine had a bad fall last friday, dislocated his shoulder and chipped a bone it it to,he also split his head open. To say he is clumsy is an understatement!
He was meant to be in hospital for 2 weeks but he was allowed home today because things are much better than first thought. So instead of visiting him hospital this friday I am meeting him for tea and cake instead. Such a relief.  :)

back in the olden days the pharmacies used to have these signs hanging on their storefront

I don't know why....so RX became an abbreviation for prescription or pharmacy..

Subject: Re: How do you feel today/ What's going on/ What are you doing ~ thread for February

Written By: snozberries on 02/11/09 at 9:56 pm


here you go karen

Where did the Rx symbol come from?


The simple, quick answer--but not the only (or most romantic) one--is that Rx is an abbreviation for the Latin word "recipere" or "recipe," which means "Take, thou." In the days before manufactured drugs, apothecaries (who were also doctors) would write out a formula for medications. They would mix up and compound ingredients to make drugs or remedies. Not until well into the 19th century was the distinction between the apothecary/pharmacist as a compounder of medicines and the physician as a therapist generally accepted. According to the Pharmaceutical Handbook (nineteenth edition, 1980), the Latin abbreviation Rx is completed by some statement such as "fiat mistura," which means "let a mixture be made," sometimes abbreviated to f. m. or ft. mist. or fait mist.). Pharmacists required a knowledge of compounding until recently. In 1920, 80% of prescriptions were compounds mixed in the shop. In the 1940s the number of prescriptions requiring compounding had declined to 26%, and then to 1% or less in 1971.

Dai's mum worked in a pharmacy and she remembers mixing up various compounds as medicines and as makeup/face creams etc. in the 50s and 60s.

I mentioned the wedding before.  The couple have been a couple for 26 years.  No kids, not having any, but decided to get married, full blown bride in white affair with 300!  It was almost canceled when she handed the groom a pre-nup but she decided to do away with it and now it is on again .  ::)  Sig wanted to know what we should give them, I said a just a handshake.  They are in there late 40s, own two homes, and have money up the wazoo.  They should pay us for dealing with the drama  ;D

Darling James.  What did the teacher say?


That, despite his brilliance, he has trouble focusing on any one task and doesn't have any executive thoughts (what six-year-old does?  :-\\).  So after the holiday (next week) she is going to clear his desk and help him focus on a task by only giving him one piece of work at a time, helping him create some check lists for repetitive tasks such as at the end of the school day and occasionally giving him different topics to others in the class to engage his interest.  He pays more attention and learns more if it is a topic that interests him.

We are also both going to work on a behaviour/attention reward scheme with him getting small rewards at home for time spent on task at school.  She is also going to get the occupational therapist to check if he needs work to help his handwriting improve.  He has poor fine motor skills apparently.

We also discussed ways of helping him order his thoughts before starting any writing task.  At the moment he dictates a lot of his writing ideas to the teacher.  At home we try to get him to capture his ideas in one or two word bullet points that he can then expand on.

He sounds a lot like me when I was little.  Not so much in the brilliance area, but definitely in the staying focused area.  I was always in trouble at school and had a really hard time getting my schoolwork done.  The other day when you were talking about him sharpening his pencil twice and not having started at all just made me laugh because that's exactly what I used to do.  When he's doing homework, might I suggest giving him frequent breaks, or changing his tasks around?  You know, having him do 20 minutes of math, then 20 minutes of reading, then back to math for 20 minutes.  I know that might not be possible at school but it might help him stay focused at home.  It really helped me when I was young.  Just a thought anyway.  Best of luck to both of you!

I've been sick all week and have stayed home from work. Lady Di is sick too but she went back to work today & I'll go back tomorrow. I got sick right after poker on Friday, it was so weird. I was fine until everyone left and then it hit me outta nowhere. anyways, we went out to a place called Fondue Freds in Berkeley last Saturday night for a friends work anniversary. I was sick but it was awesome for my first fondue experience.  I've pretty much just stayed in bed all week since that.  today I changed the ballcock in our toilet, which was a first for me. It wasn't that hard & I was glad to save money by not having to call a plumber.

I was fine until everyone left and then it hit me outta nowhere. anyways, we went out to a place called Fondue Freds in Berkeley last Saturday night for a friends work anniversary. I was sick but it was awesome for my first fondue experience.  I've pretty much just stayed in bed all week since that.  today I changed the ballcock in our toilet, which was a first for me. It wasn't that hard & I was glad to save money by not having to call a plumber.

Tonight we had STRONG winds (90 mph) come through our area...they had been calling for a tornado warning all day today. It knocked the power out at work, so we left early. It was so bad/strong...that it uprooted the shopping cart return...turned it upside down..and crushed carts. :o


Yeah, we had the same winds, but we didn't have electricity for part of the night last night and most of the day today at home.  Thankfully, it was a nice day outside today, so we got to go out and soak up some sun.  Really need it.

well Peter, let's clarify what a ballcock is before we move on to step one. first you turn off the water to toilet, and then undo the nuts on the hose. (this just sounds dirty)  ;D  http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0S020vl25RJJ3kBPvSjzbkF/SIG=1388h4e7t/EXP=1234578789/**http%3A//www.contractorssolutions.com/Information/images_Toilets/AttachWaterSupply.jpg

then you lift the lid to the toilet & remove the old ballcock and replace it with the newer ballcock

Someone up there is trying to tell you not to work! take care of yourself and don't overdo the cleaning. *wags finger at Amy*



Thanks, MOM!  ;D ;D

Truth is, I feel 110% better.  I think my knee needed to crack, but me being me wasn't going to try to do it.  I didn't know it could sound and hurt like that.  It swelled up, but it feels better now than it did the other day.

Thank you all for your good wishes.

Karen, sorry I didn't get to respond to your question, glad Q took care of you.

BTW, Q, back on the elliptical tomorrow....how are YOUR stats?  ;):P

Jess, that really sucks.  I feel for ya, girl!  Hope your neck feels better quickly.

Think I talked to my mom on the phone longer tonight than I have most of my life (she hates talking on the phone)-then she called me back to tell me I don't have to worry about making lunch on Saturday.  Hmmm  I was under the impression that the purpose of my weekend trip was to clean their house and cook so they could relax (and get away from here for the dreaded Valentine's Day).  Mom told me she is making soup that will be ready for dinner tomorrow night and Dad wants to take us out Saturday night.  She also said that she has done laundry and changed my dad's sheets.....Ok.  Am sure there will be something left for me to do (floors, mostly).  She said that they miss me terribly and are very excited that I'm coming to visit (hence the soup, dinner out, less housework to do).  How cute is that.

Ok, FSU and BR are dominating the local news and I'm not feeling the love.  Talking about how the proposed state budget cuts will affect us.  Well, FSU will freeze hiring and probably lay off (governor is requesting tuition freezes, which is our main source of revenue).  BR on there because more companies announcing "worker reductions" --how does that sound better than "we've had to fire hundreds of employees"?

I'm off to bed....still have to pack  ::)

Mike, I've had to replace our ballcock before. *snicker*

Just got back from the ER.  After six hours of waiting, I gave up, went to Walgreen's, bought some Momentum and ThermaCare heat patches, and am now sitting here eating Spaghetti-O's and Doritos.  What?  It's a favorite of mine!

Yeah, when I left the ER, there was still 13 people ahead of me, so I called it a night. :P

The sucky part is that I went to Urgent Care at my usual clinic BEFORE going to the ER and they couldn't see me there, either.  Too many patients and not enough doctors.  I was getting sort of pissed though in the Emergency Room because there was this older gentleman who had been waiting since 1 in the afternoon, and no one had seen him.  He was still there when I left. :o

Erin, glad V is feeling better.  Hope he has fun at the party!

Gis, that is great news about Himself!  Sorry to hear about your friend's accident, but glad he was discharged earlier than expected...that is good new.



I am just out of the Emergency room.  Had a small accident while I was teaching this evening, wrenched my knee.  Had to call and ask Micah to find a ride to come get me since I couldn't bend it to drive (right knee).  She stayed with me, took me to get Rx and food.  She'll pick me up in a.m.  I am in knee immobilizer and back on crutches.  Stilll planning on going to clean parents' house on Friday, but not so sure I'll be able to scrub floors on my hands and knees.   ::)  I also have to put off workouts for a few days.  Naturally just as I was starting to lose ounces and break my own records on the elliptical machine.  Grrr.  Maybe I'll just go do free weights and work on upper body (also get to count crutching!)
sorry you got injured Amy.  what wre you teaching that was so rigorous  :o  anyways, best wishes to you for a speedy healing & recovery.


Sometimes you're just no fun!!!  ;D
sometimes that's true, I can be a bit boring.  as for ballcocks; they do get older, they don't work as well as they used too. mine was worn out and leaking. whats wrong with yours?  ::)

dear Lord, I absolutely hate office meetings.  thanks Gis, but if it weren't for the internet I would have had to hire a plumber. I found videos showing how to repair and I'm like "that's easy enough, I can do that" and I did. Now I do have a friend who is a plumber & he would not charge me much, in fact the last time he was here fixing my garbage disposal, he didn't want any money, but I made him take some $$.  if you win the lottery, I'd be happy to be part of your chef/catering crew  :)

so I called in sick one more day today because I didn't want to go in and spread my disease to everyone, so soon, I'm gonna grab a blanket & pillow, throw in a long dvd and lay down on the sofa for a couple hours or all day.

I'm just sick of the rain still and it's really bugging me.  After I posted this the sun was out for a while and I potted my orange tree and my Trumpet Creeper. Glad to think that I might have saved the poor things.  I don't have any dry soil, but at least they can drain out now.  It's all cloudy and gray again but at least I've got about every plant I have potted.

Its been raining like crazy here so we had a traffic accident early this morning...no injuries  

and have been so busy it took me an hour so send one short PM

on the bright side  I got my  lunch and it was warm. . . and there was no cheese anywhere!  8)

had a power outage on Monday...I didn't notice until this morning when my alarm didn't go off that my clock is actually off by 12 hours so I set the alarm for 6am but it didn't go off this morning... when I woke up the clock read 7pm!  Fortunately I was only 3 minutes late to work.

Its been raining like crazy here so we had a traffic accident early this morning...no injuries  

and have been so busy it took me an hour so send one short PM

on the bright side  I got my  lunch and it was warm. . . and there was no cheese anywhere!  8)




Your aversion to cheese........It always surprizes me how your posts are always soooo cheesy!

Exactly.....although- one of the victims of the Manson massacre (at the Sharon Tate home) was overheard by the gardener who was hidden in his quarters She told her attacker- "I'm dead; you killed me already..." or something similar to that

Why do you have to work them all?

Why do you have to work them all? 


the two part timers are out of town
two full timers are out of town
one full timer works tonight at 930 *he's my new relief* and he had approval to have tomorrow off..the guy who called in sick was scheduled to cover for the guy who wanted off...

I have to work them because the person on duty is not allowed to leave until someone shows up to cover if no one shows up then I wind up working 24/7 (well not really because after 18 hours I'd call my boss and say I can't hang anymore and then she'd be required to come in if I can't find another dispatcher. There are only 6 of us... plus two part timers.

That sucks.  That's why I will never work a job again that my leaving requires a replacement, unless it is a last resort.  I worked many a double shift at 7-11 because the graveyard guy was too busy partying to be bothered with coming into work.

Mike,  very cute!  It wasn't the teaching that did it, it was not paying attention to where I was leaning (unstable part of the chair)  ::)  I am feeling so much better now...ready to clean tomorrow!  I am so leaving your toilet innuendoes alone--too many options to choose from anyway!!!!  ;D ;D

Q, I'm so sorry to hear how things have worked out at work.  Sometimes it is so incredibly unfair.  I'm glad your lunch was cheeseless and your posts aren't! ;):P   You are too cute.  Nope, couldn't take the day off the elliptical since I'm not working out tomorrow and Sunday is iffy, sorry!   ::)   I will be fine, but thanks for caring!   8)

Gis, glad you survived the meeting.

wild, hope things look up soon.

Cat, please let me know what you find out....especially if you need a hug or shoulder.

But if ther's a roster...they have to commit to it.  Just because you are more available for work doesn't mean you get ALL the holiday/special day shifts. I suppose there's not much that can be said if the rostered person's sick though...but it DOES sound as if they take advantage of your single status.

but the people scheduled were already granted time off.

the people who usually have the day off made plans. I can't order them to work on their regularly scheduled day off... like I said I drew short stick being in the room when it happened....

and the guy who was going to cover for the people who had their time off request approved is sick.... so that leaves little old me....

I certainly call on people on rostered days off to come to work and have another day instead. This is also a health and saftey issue....workers are much less effective and they are prone to error when working longer hours without adequate breaks!

glad you'll be around to entertain me tho...fortunately it finally slowed down- so now that people have stopped calling I can settle down with Hulu and ER....funny- a 14 hour shift is much easier to take when there's good TV to be watched!  ;)

so today at about 3:30pm I went to See's candies to buy some chocolate for Lady Di & Julie. the line was to the door, in fact there were 2 lines, the one for prepackaged and the one for custom select which is the one I was in, and it was the longer line because everyone is having each piece of chocolate hand selected and packed but while waiting I had a nice talk with the lady behind me. it took us about 45minutes for the entire experience but it was worth it. as you wait, they give out samples and mine was a light chocolate truffle and I didn't eat it until I was walking out and then realized it had started to melt in my hand.  so anyways, I'll be by my lonesome tomorrow as LD goes up to visit Jule's, and since we'll just see each other in the morning, I picked up a couple of small lobster tails to broil, so we're gonna have lobster for breakfast  :D

Q, the lady in the candy store said she is a 911 dispatcher for San Francisco. I mentioned to her I had a 911 friend in Santa Barbara who sometimes gets kooky calls. she's been doing it for 30 years and said she knows all about those and all about getting stuck overtime as she works graveyard and just like you, when the day person doesn't show, she gets stuck, but she said the money is good.

ugh I have a friend who lives in SF...

I would have no choice since they already deemed it comp.  I only took today off because I had already scheduled it so I could chill with the folks before tackling their house.  I don't foresee anything major happening, but I do appreciate your compassion and concern.

When we got married after living together for 5 years, there was nothing we needed, so we put on the invitations "No gifts" but people still gave us gifts.  ::)  I told my grandmother that we did say NO GIFTS but she said, "Well, as your grandmother, I have the RIGHT to give you a gift if I want to." How could you argue with that. And my niece (who was our maid-of-honor) gave us a frame that was engraved with our names & date. So, we made allowances since she was our maid-of-honor. Carlos' cousins gave us a set of wine glasses and said that it wasn't a wedding gift but a Christmas gift (we got married in Oct.). And the one that really floored us was a friend of my mother's who we met ONE time and we didn't even invite her the wedding and she sent us $200.  :o :o :o

And the one that really floored us was a friend of my mother's who we met ONE time and we didn't even invite her the wedding and she sent us $200.  :o :o :o

I changed my mind- maybe I will get married after all.... think I can find someone to perform a ceremony where I am both bride and groom? I think I just want to commit to being faithful to myself for as long as I both shall live  ;D

I fell asleep on the sofa while I was watching A Hard Day's Night and since I'm still a bit under the weather, I think that will be my lot for the day, sofa & movies and hot jasmine green tea, with a nice warm blanket. just lazing on a Saturday afternoon  8)

not overkill, it's just a bit exciting when geting to meet inthe00s people is a possibility. I was elated when I got to meet Jess & Rice. I'm actually going to be in Las Vegas end of April, but probably won't be able to have a mini meet due to the nature of my stay.

We had a great day skiing in New Hampshire.  We drove up yesterday - traffic was very slow for a good bit.

We met our friends from Boston this morning and skied most of the day.  I stopped first and had a restorative hot chocolate.

We also had dinner together before going our spearate ways.  I had to do some of the driving because Dai was so tired (partly jet-lag still).

Woke up yesterday at 3:30 in the morning ended up watching a movie I had never heard of/seen before "STAY HUNGRY" with Arnold Schwartzenegger, Sally Field and Jeff Bridges; as I could not fall back to sleep.  It was definitely different, but not terrible.  I had to do some running, as my FFA chapter is hosting the CDE events on Monday and 150 some kids will be at the school competing.

Today I feel like S____t,  head ready to explode, cough from deep in the chest and just general ill :-[.

I have to make it for contest.  Wow how I wish I had a real 3 day weekend and could just sleep.

Weird experience here.  At 11 P.M. everything went pitch black in our  apartments, seems the transformer was shot.  I had no choice but to wander the halls first by feeling my way, then by candlelight.  Absolutely nothing was lit up and it was even too dark to read by candlelight.  I had no choice but to go to bed. Then things woke me up at 3:30 a.m. by turning on...computer, etc.

To buy at store...1 or 2 flashlights.  geesh  ::)

A parenting board I belong had a member who was actually posing as three or four people with different families.  It was discovered when she posted a link to some new photos of her 'children' and someone spotted they linked to a blog that called the children different names, the entire circumstances were different, etc.

My mom is going back to work tomorrow evening (she cleans an optometrist's office afterhours.)  She's been antsy to get back to work.  I suppose she is feeling better (although I worry about her partially deflated lung.  Her heart dr. gave her the thumbs up to return to work, and she will see the lung doctor tomorrow after having x-rays done today.)

I am looking into going back to school.  I don't even know what I want to do.  I am nervous about it though since my hearing is SO bad, I am not entirely sure that I'd be able to hear lectures well enough (even with my hearing aid.)  :-\\  Perhaps I should look into just doing an online degree.  Still don't know what area to pursue though.  I want something that there will be jobs in years to come, but who the heck knows what THAT will be (unless I am a truck driver or nurse (which those careers, while there are always openings it seems, neither really appeals to me.)

they must have right clicked the pic to save it to their computer and photo shopped the other guy in.... how did you guys find it?

I went to her MySpace,then looked over at her friends activities and saw this  lady had tagged her photos.Missy clicked on the ladies profile,then looked up her photos and all of Daniels baby pics that they had just put up were under this ladies photos.Missy then deleted her,then Dan did something so the photos were deleted too.
A parenting board I belong had a member who was actually posing as three or four people with different families.  It was discovered when she posted a link to some new photos of her 'children' and someone spotted they linked to a blog that called the children different names, the entire circumstances were different, etc.

Isn't this a sad society we live in when someone tries to claim other peoples kids and family members >:(

yay for mom! Assuming the lung doc gives her a thumbs up! ....


might I make a suggestion about school, having just done it this past summer, take something you know you will enjoy to ease yourself back into it.  Like, hmmmm... my bookmistress friend.... perhaps an english class  ;)

With regards to the hearing - can you get a digital recorder to tape the lectures so you can listen to it later to pick up what you missed? 

I also know with our school- they used to pay students to take notes so perhaps they have someone in the class who is taking notes for disabled student services and you can get into that program... or something. 


oh and check this out... its a pen (and paper I guess) that actually records the lecture and then converts it to text... I don't know how well it works but damn if technology just doesn't blow me away more and more everyday!

I still need a hearing aid. The only ones you can try out through Costco or whatever don't really do me any good.  I think I'm going to need one of those speaker in the ear canal jobs that look like they cost $2000 + right now.    I don't think the open ear design without speakers will do me much good, but might want to give it a try if I could afford it.  I need an open design because I can get so much wax in my ear.

Anyway I continue to feel bla today.  It felt like 44 and I was freezing.  Here for hours, bed for hours, and back here.

Still sick, made it all the way through the competition and they all said it was well organized - not sure though (do they tell that to all the teachers???)

I now have a kid that has a fever and sick now (yes snoz once again - different kid though).  Fever at 101.2, and giving motrin, hopefully she feels better soon; this started last night and she had to go to grandmas while I hosted the competition :-\\  I just wanted to stay home with my girl, but I could not.

All Home Sick from school - Eldest daughter - 3rd day of a fever and we have been giving Motrin (it helps to take the Fever away, but it keeps coming back), and she says her throat hurts.

Youngest I think is just a general ill - she slept lots and just is unlike herself - not sure what is going on.  Not sure if I should send her or not.

Me, coughing, throat and snotty, with a nasty headache.... 8-P

I am here and that is all that I am

My two are at a sports camp this morning.  I dropped them off and then went to Curves gym and then grocery shopping.  I have to fetch them in an hour.  I think I'm going to take all my recycling to the transfer station on the way.

I need to clean the car out this afternoon.  A new family has moved out here from the UK and I am meeting the mum and children tomorrow and taking them around a friends house to meet some of the other Brits.

Yes and minors are not allowed near the gaming areas.  We stood outside a hotel restaurant waiting for Dai and we happened to be at the end of a row of slot machines.  We were asked to stand in the doorway of the restaurant.

My sister took my niece to Vegas for her 21st birthday. The thing is, she looked like she was 12 (actually she still does) so they kept asking her to see her ID and it got very annoying. She then found out that she could get a bracelet that everyone can see-letting them know that she was of age-but this was after she got very P.O.ed about it. I don't think she will be going back to Vegas.  :-\\

I don't blame her.  When Micah turned 5, we spent Christmas in Floriday (parents flew everyone down).  Went to Disneyworld for the weekend, stayed in the park.  Mom and Dad said they would babysit so my brother and I could go check out the clubs at Pleasure Island.  I was in my late 20s.  Got the bracelet ID'g me as over 21.  Went to a couple clubs, then found one my brother liked.  I went out a couple times to see if there was room in the jazz club, but it always said full.  I went out to get some air from the cigarette smoke and the bouncer wouldn't let me back in, despite the wristband.  He made me show my ID and since the lighting was dim at the entrance, he grabbed my upper arm and dragged me over under a light (we had an audience now).  He must have looked at it for a solid 7 minutes (back and forth between ID and me) before allowing me back in the club.  I wasn't even drinking.  Said I had to go back in and find my brother who was probably worried about me (he wasn't).

Thanks for the info everyone!

I don't blame her.  When Micah turned 5, we spent Christmas in Floriday (parents flew everyone down).  Went to Disneyworld for the weekend, stayed in the park.  Mom and Dad said they would babysit so my brother and I could go check out the clubs at Pleasure Island.  I was in my late 20s.  Got the bracelet ID'g me as over 21.  Went to a couple clubs, then found one my brother liked.  I went out a couple times to see if there was room in the jazz club, but it always said full.  I went out to get some air from the cigarette smoke and the bouncer wouldn't let me back in, despite the wristband.  He made me show my ID and since the lighting was dim at the entrance, he grabbed my upper arm and dragged me over under a light (we had an audience now).  He must have looked at it for a solid 7 minutes (back and forth between ID and me) before allowing me back in the club.  I wasn't even drinking.  Said I had to go back in and find my brother who was probably worried about me (he wasn't).

Thanks for the info everyone!


Some years ago I was at a casino and was cashing out my slot machine ticket (it wasn't much...about 7 bucks). I gave my ticket to the cashier at the cage and she demanded to see my ID. I let her see my ID and she kept looking at it and then back at me for quite some time. When she was finished she stomped off, saying out loud, "Damn, she looks so damn young!" Well, what did she expect a twenty-something person to look like, anyway?  :-\\

If everyone took a day off work when they had a cold places would be very short staffed in the winter.  And you might not have been able to just walk in and get an EKG

I took a class with this guy once and whenever he sneezed, EVERYBODY in the class would shake papers as if it was a big wind storm. This one guy would get up and pretend to be pinned against the wall by the force of his sneeze. It was funny. Like I said, EVERYONE in the class would do that. The guy just sat there with a sheepish grin on his face. He knew we were all doing it in jest and took it as such.

If everyone took a day off work when they had a cold places would be very short staffed in the winter.  And you might not have been able to just walk in and get an EKG


Maybe I could've asked for someone else to do the EKG. ???

I used to work with a girl who refused to sneeze... she would totally suppress them and give a very girlie....achoo- it was really annoying.


Her name wasn't Emily, was it?  I can still remember her at school suffering with severe hayfever and trying not to sneeze because it wasn't ladylike.

no apparently there are two of them on the planet!  ;D


the first time she "sneezed" I stopped what I was doing and looked at her and said...."WTF was that?"  It was far more annoying than a loud sneeze...  well almost.

I had a v expensive phone bill arrive the other day.  It turns out that when I switched to a new plan they forgot to switch my international rate over.  I went from paying about 8 cents/minute to around $3/minute.  :o  I managed to sort it out this evening and get the bill to a slightly more reasonable level.

Glad you got to meet up with your friend.  That always can make someone feel good.

I have been missing some friends lately, makes me want to move back home just so I can be closer.  Driving 2 hours does not appeal to any of my friends, especially to go nowhere; so I am always making the trip.  :-[  I see girls night out signs/groups and I am always saddened

I made six phone calls last month and the bill for the calls was over £300!  As I said (if you read my post) I was charged $3 a minute instead of 8 cents a minute.  That is a big difference that was AT&T's mistake.

Yeah...when the girls were in school...this person was 25 and in the work force....it was stupid.


I lived in Panama (Pan-a-mah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!)  in the early to mid 70s. From 1st grade to 3rd grade.... I don't remember a lot. We lived on the air force base so it was really alot of playing with the other kids, eating fried eggs and (orange juice with ice), and going to see Bambi.

Once while walking home from school I got in trouble because there was a dune buggy parked on the street and it looked like a toy car to me so I got in side and started playing in it...

and my second grade teacher had a hump.

I had a toy dune buggy too.  It was about 8" X 5" (sort of a larger toy), it looked much like the one below- except it was metallic blue (you know 70's metallic with the flecks of shiny stuff in it) and I would push around GI Joe and Evil Knievel in it - sometimes Barbie ;D ;D ;D  I wonder where that is at???

Honestly Cat, just the fact that you are doing something like this is so nice of you.  I'm sure anything you include would be appreciated for years to come.  I think all of Snozberries ideas are great.  Maybe some Kleenexes, and a note that says something like "it's ok to cry."  Something with an angel theme would be nice too.  A couple of people gave me Willow Tree angels when my mom died, and I treasure them.

About a week before the inauguration I was told i had to go to training on inauguration day... I pitched a fit cuz I had the day off to watch the event....anyway- turns out someone got the date wrong and it was Feb 20th.... so as of the weekend I had no word on my training.. I emailed my boss and her boss and the training coordinator on Tuesday (monday was a holiday)

as of this morning I heard nothing back so i emailed again- got the training coordinator in trouble for dropping the ball - I mean the thing is tomorrow.

My captain gave me the number to call about the training details- turns out the date was changed to next thursday- 

we had already made arrangements to get coverage for me to go to this training and no one is getting paid overtime...so I asked them If I can just have the day off since my shift is already covered

Anything would be wonderful I am sure.  Remembrances of their mom, copies of pictures, video etc...  Maybe some things that would remind you of their mom and the story behind them (favorite candy, cookie,etc...) Family recipes - just something to tie them to the family and remembrances of who their mother was and why she was so great (AND WHY THEY-the nieces - ARE SO GREAT TO HAVE IN THE FAMILY).

Great touching thing you are doing cat.

I'd include the book that someone once gave me.  The Fall of Freddie the Leaf: A Story of Life for All Ages,
by Leo Buscalgia

it's a very short book, but it's very touching and meaningful. my supervisor at work gave me a copy when my mom died in 1988 and she wrote something really nice on the inside to me & I treasure it and have shared the book with others who have lost someone.

you can read the entire book here on one page  http://www.achievebalance.com/spirit/theleaf.htm

Everything everyone has said already sounds great.
Personally, when my Aunt passed, I found comfort in a micro-fiber fleece blanket I bought for like $10 at Big Lots or Target or Walmart. It was perfect because it absorbed my tears, my screams, my anger. And it didn't judge me. Although it was tiny comfort, it was something I needed.

We had a good day skiing.  The instructor said my turns are really good.

We had dinner on the way home at Chili's.  The kids fell asleep in the car.  Elizabeth was too cute when we got back.  I was trying to get her out of the car but she was too heavy for me to pick up.  Every time I tried to move her she waved me away and tried to snuggle back under her dad's coat as though she was in bed.

We had a good day skiing.  The instructor said my turns are really good.

We had dinner on the way home at Chili's.  The kids fell asleep in the car.  Elizabeth was too cute when we got back.  I was trying to get her out of the car but she was too heavy for me to pick up.  Every time I tried to move her she waved me away and tried to snuggle back under her dad's coat as though she was in bed.
Cheers for the good day ;D

I've ate at them all several times  ;D  and they are all pretty consistent and the only difference would be size of restaurant and location. the one in San Pablo/Richmond is probably the one that's been in business the longest and I haven't been to that one in years, but it used to be the only one I went to. No matter which one, the food would be the same I think, and Nations is not big on atmoshpere but the grub is good  8)

In the first week of this month, we had changes to the Keyworking procedure at my care home. The residents also hadn't had a Link worker for over a year, so my team leader and house manager decided to bring them back. When I found out who my Key Worker and Link Worker would be, I wasn't quite pleased because my Key Worker turned out to be a man but it was still good to know that my Link Worker is a woman. I wanted both of them to be women so that I could tell them about issues that I cannot tell men about (e.g. women's health).

I also felt stressed this month because I'd planned to clear out my bedroom before my parents came down to visit me. I cleared out most of my bedroom but I had other things to do such as visit the cinema to see 'Hotel for Dogs', take part in communal activities and make birthday cards for four of my relatives. My parents came down to see me over the past two days whilst staying at my grandfather's house for the night. They also brought their dog Jasmine down and I took her for two walks. On Thursday I also walked my great aunt's dog Jack, a possible Jack Russell and Cavalier King Charles cross. Jack is usually a nervous dog, he's seven months old and he jumps and whines a lot.

To our surprise, the house was almost empty (at least where we were-in Nosebleed Central). We go every year and they are usually PACKED!!! I guess it is the recession/depression that kept a lot of people away.

We had planned to go out to eat AFTER the show. Carlos doesn't like doing it before hand because either we will be rushed or we will be waiting around too long for the show to start. I told him that it would be about 10:00 and I'm sure most restaurants would be closed. He said it was Friday night-they would be opened. Ok. After the show, we went to one restaurant to tell us that they were closed and were told that two others were still serving. We went to one of them and they said they stopped serving at 10 (and it was about 10-15 after by that time). So, we ended up right across the street from the theatre. Yeah, we should have gone there to begin with instead of walking around the block on a VERY cold night. Anyway, they didn't serve their DINNER menu but more like their "snack" menu-but it was enough. The food was probably about a B- or so but service was A+. We should know by now that Vermont rolls up its sidewalks at 10:00 p.m.  ::)

I am going to get my fathers taxes done today. Since I have power of attorney over him it's now my job
to make sure it gets done. It's bad enough dealing with taxes once a year but now I have to do it twice.
I just hope he fairs better than I did, for the first time since I've been filing I owe the IRS money. Well, not
anymore, I paid it last week. Still, I hate owing.

I feel ya.  I don't have to do my parents' yet, but it was the first time I have owed the IRS.  Good for you for getting it done.  Waiting for state refund as it will cover most of fed expense.  Still need to save out money from a couple paychecks to cover the rest.

Yay Mike! I too am feeling miles better. Still coughing and snotting a bit but who cares, the sun is out the sky is blue it's gorgeous outside, spring is here  :) I feel like I'm about to burst into song.  ;D
Going to get dressed, get the food shop out of the way and get out in my garden * sings* 'oh the barnyard is busy in a regular tizzy, and the obvious reason is because of the season'
oh god now I'm going to have to watch the movie.  ;D
thanks Gis and you're ready to burst into a song?  ;D  I'm glad to hear your feeling a tad better & hopefully snotting less  8-P 


Sure you show up when I leave ::)


Glad you are feeling better.  Hoping my stuff clear up like yours - just poof gone.  So far no go - but I have only had it 9 days now :-

unfortunately, there was no rest for this guy. I had just heated up water for some hot tea, and was going to have a (lay down) that's what Philip calls a nap, when the phone rang and I was advised that Julie's car was done. I just got back from picking up her car. I left mine there since it has an alarm & me & Lady Di will go pick mine up later... so I stopped at the grocery store on the way home and bought me a beautiful porterhouse steak, after having talkd about steaks in the food section and that will be my dinner. Diane has a dinner she's going to and Julie is just picky and will have to fend for herself, but I did get some chicken quarters and I'll roast those & maybe she'll eat some of that. other than that. Happy Saturday. I love weekends  8)

and thanks for the really nice compliments Amy, and sometimes I can be grouchy &  "not so great"  ::)  but they're continually working on me to refine and modify any defects that they are aware of.  ;D  and don't we all deserve some good down time and rest because us inthe00s people totally rock!

Her.  No, she was interviewed because Obama invited all the governors to DC to talk about the stimulus.  The news story was about governors that were declining some of the money being offered.  MI is not one of them.

Tomorrow we plan to go to Ikea in New Haven and a museum or something after lunch.

I almost was it by a car months ago.  ::)
did you dodge it?   :o  



We all had a nice day today.  Mooched around the house this morning doing laundry (got some dry on the line outside!), making bread, etc.  This afternoon we went to a local park and messed about at basketball and then the kids went on the playscape.

Tomorrow we plan to go to Ikea in New Haven and a museum or something after lunch.
it sounds like you had it fairly easy today  :)  nice


..just got done eating roast chicken instead of the porterhouse, because the chicken looked and smelled so good and it was practically falling off the bone it was so tender. 
Julie drove me to pick up my car. i haven't rode with her in a long while and yanno what? she drives too bloody fast and I was a bit of a backseat driver until I realized it was bumming her out, so I backed off and let her drive  ::)  I will have the steaK for my birthday breakfast on Monday since I'm giving myself the day off work as a gift from me to me  8)

I was thinking about you when we drove past the exit for Red Lobster!


We went to IKEA to buy a small side table for the Wii TV.  We also bought two dinner sets (we have bowls in the same design and the set was cheaper than separates) and a cute towel for my friend that's having her baby soon (as in its due tomorrow).

We went to the Peabody museum on the way back.  And now I'm enjoying a nice cup of tea before preparing dinner

My sentiments exactly (re: Howard's oversharing)

Yes, she made the comment as we were walking into Wal-Mart yesterday.  She said she was tired of winter and was going to transfer somewhere in GA or FL.  Then she turned to Tuan and told him he could just find a school down there.  My heart stopped beating.  I am glad Jules isn't serious about her "friend"...I was really hoping Micah wouldn't have a boyfriend (at least not a serious one) for a few years......wishful thinking, I guess.  :-\\

;D  yeah, a 2 for the price of one offer.  well, the thing with having a boyfriend or girlfriend is that it can be distraction from school, especially if they have any emotional difficulties which they always do.  good luck with Micah and hopefully she & Jule's make school their first priority.

how long has it been? If its been over an hour you can call back and ask if they know approx

Oh just saw this YAY! if you haven't done so please call the PD so they can take the call off their boards! We always appreciate a call back especially when its a cancellation.


What I was going to say is, if its busy then they push the lower priority calls (like theft) down on the list so they candle the in progress or hot calls... It sucks for those who have sit and wait for an officer to respond...but the woman getting beat by her husband or the guy getting jacked at the stop and rob totally appreciates that they didn't have to wait because the officer was trying to track down property that was stolen hours ago  ;)
