Default ***Misfit Monday (2-2-15)***

Happy February and Happy Groundhog Day!!

We went to Denver for the weekend and I wasn't able to post the new thread yesterday. We went to a Nuggets basketball game on Saturday night and then stayed at a hotel and came home yesterday evening. We had a great time just being alone and Preston and Grandma had a blast together.

Watching the kids today and nothing else planned for the rest of the week other than normal life stuff.

Sometimes normal life stuff is good. I was just telling my mom that today!

Storm beating down on the Maritimes. They say it will last three days. I guess this is an old fashion winter. We should get 18 inches this time. I'm just staying put and not going anywhere. Our first kitty is hiding in the cottage, my guess it will be three days before she comes out.

I'm with you Joanne it's the normal everyday stuff like making stew tonight that is good.

It is bright and sunny today. I haven't been outside, but it looks like the sun is melting some things. I have so much I should do today, I have to decide which take priority - probably the never-ending laundry for starters!

Hope everyone is having a good day. Gail - I'm sorry about your three-day storm. YIKES.

I agree too - normal life stuff is good

We're going to Walgreen's today to get all of our Valentine goodies. They give a discount on Tuesday which is nice. I bought some Valentine stamps (Changito monkey) at a local stamp store recently and need to start on making some of the things I have pinned on Pinterest.

Sunny, warmish day today - tomorrow we're getting another storm and then warm for the weekend.

This sure brings back memories of when I was a kid.... the doctor along with my parents had to run around the house to catch me for a shot.... hated needles.

Allergies

I took my young son to the doctor for a routine physical. All the way I had to reassure him that he would not be getting a shot. He went through his eye exam, hearing test, etc. The nurse came into the exam room and started to ask me routine questions.

When she got to "Is he allergic to anything" my four year old son stood up and said "YES, I'm allergic to shots!"

Sun is out for the afternoon. Car is buried and we are waiting for the plow to go to town. Only 5 minutes. Love how that sounds! It will start up again tonight and into tomorrow.
Sleeping my day away!

Jennifer - I have so many things pinned on pinterest! I wonder how many of them will get made! LOL

Caterina - my poor brother had horrible allergies as a child. He had to get five shots (three in one arm, two in another). He took them like a trooper. He has outgrown a lot of his allergies. I'm now getting them!

Gail - you have such a great attitude!

We are getting snow! So the ground is white again. it seems strange that the east is getting hammered and we are getting very little. Not that I love snow, but the farmers need it for the ground.

The last 2 days at work have been fun. My boss is gone until Friday. we all get along so much better when she is gone! And the work gets completed!

Hello All,I have reasons why I have not been posting. Many are sad and I don't want to really relive. I just want you to know you have always been in my thoughts. I have not been a good friend. But the best I can say is sometimes, one just does not function well.
You all seem to thru thick and thin.. I am sorry.

Treasure this week at work, Joan! It's a shame she is such a problem. By the way, how is your MIL?

Anyone watch Person of Interest on CBS? Bill used to watch it a lot, but we haven't in awhile. Several of the scenes from tonight's episode were filmed near where I grew up - Piermont, Sparkill and Tappan, NY! I wonder if I'll recognize the places - so much has changed and even though we visit my parents, we don't drive around much.

Karen, dear friend, in this life, we do have trouble... it certainly is not a smooth road and functioning can be more than challenging. Believe me I do understand and have had my share of meltdowns so no need for you to feel sorry. You ARE a good friend, we miss you and we love you. Call me anytime, people say I am a good listener. <3

Reynold and I are big fans of Person of Interest... hated when they killed Carter. Last night's episode was pretty good and how cool to see some places where you grew up.

Cat I'm happy to report that my pictures were accepted in the gallery. Teddies and a sign saying this is my HAPPY PLACE, thank heavens saw how innocent and special these items were to me.

Hedgie was talking about pain. We all suffer different kinds of pain in life and those bears have been with me through it all. Everyone's story is different, the pain very real but it's what you do with it. First SURVIVE, then taking each day as it comes baby steps. I thought I'd never be happy again, never love, never find the JOY that eluded me. During those dark days I couldn't talk about it or be happy. The love and joy came and I savour every moment. We really understand and offer hugs and prayers that soon this will pass from your life.

Busy day at pediatrics, lots of babies, kids and teens. Two were in the PICU and had to press staff assistance for the baby who seemed to be struggling and the machine was sounding an alarm. Wow, in seconds there were 6 people in the room doing everything to check on him. The PICU staff are awesome.

Chuckle for today

Not What You Expected

Walking along the beach, Dave tripped over a half-buried kerosene lantern. He rubbed its side and sure enough, a genie materialized.

"I can't grant your wishes," explained the freed spirit, "but I'll give you three gifts for releasing me: a potion to cure ill health, a very large diamond, and a dinner date with a famous movie star. By tomorrow afternoon, you will have received all these gifts."

When Dave returned home from work the next evening, he excitedly asked his mother if anything had been delivered.

"Yes," she replied. "It's been an unusual day. At 2 p.m., a 55-gallon drum of chicken soup arrived. About a half-hour later, a telegram came saying that a long-lost relative had left you a minor-league baseball stadium. Ten minutes ago, MGM called, inviting you to dinner with Lassie tonight."

Hedgie- So happy to see you post. I think about you often. Take care

I am enjoying this week. Interesting, I have been able to sleep that past four days, too! Boss lady will be back on Friday!
My MIL is hanging in there. She is not ready to die. So she could be around for a while!

Caterina- Great chuckle!

Have a great evening!

Joan - I was just going to ask how your MIL is doing. How is the rest of the family dealing with all of this? Hope they are doing as well as can be expected, too.

I know this is probably 'normal' for many of you, but our temps tomorrow are going to be cold (they are bad today, too), our low at night will be 4 not including the windchill.

Another wet snow and rain hit the Maritimes. We had 24 hours of quiet but now in the midst of a messy storm.

Quiet today but we all need a day of rest. Hubby is at the farmhouse and of course in the midst of a storm the banker is coming for assessment for the new owners. He is in turmoil. It won't happen and on Monday we will all be there including two folks that help me. It doesn't rain but it pours. One more week for all conditions to be met.

Oh Nichole- Hope you feel better soon. Back pain is awful! I have no idea about being a wedding coordinator. Sorry!

Nikki = I am so sorry about your back. Bill hurt his back just putting on socks one morning. And he was in massive pain. He needed real pain meds! Be careful.

Like Joan - I have no idea what to charge for something like that. You do so much and are so busy all the time. You wear me out just reading about all you do!

Sorry about your back

What to charge? Good question. First, do you want to do it? If not, change a lot. If you do, how many hours do you anticipate in the making and setting up? I know she's a friend but get some type of written agreement as to what you are going to do for her and try not to overlap with the site coordinator. They can get very territorial and rightly so. What do you think your time is worh an hour? $15,$20?
Travel expense? Supplies?

Curious as to what you charged her for the invites.

Good morning dear ladies and happy Friday!

Nichole, I think Liz made some good points on taking on this project. You could go online and see what others charge for their services. Here are some links that came up for me -

Chuckle for today...

Baby Wrap

Part of my job as a public-health nurse is teaching new parents how to care for their infants.

As I was demonstrating how to wrap a newborn, a young Asian couple turned to me and said, "You mean we should wrap the baby like an egg roll?"

"Yes," I replied, "That is a good analogy."

"I don't know how to make egg rolls," another mother said anxiously. "Can I wrap my baby like a burrito?"

Great Chuckle..

More drama at work! Yesterday, the chef and my ally had an issue. well, today she called and spoke to the boss about it. My friend stayed home. Then another co-workers ride didn't show up. So she was late. Then at the end of the day the VP showed up unannounced. It was the chef's 37th birthday! OH boy!

Storm is over for a few days. Snow banks are getting very high! Hubby is here with Autumn cat #2! Silver Bell is getting brave and out in the main rooms.

My Mother called today and she was all excited about a visit from some relatives. It was so great that she was sounding like her old self. Making plans to come to Nova Scotia with these relatives. Plans are nice and keep us young at heart. So happy for my Mom!

Joan, this might make a good book, movie or TV show that may make you some $$$$$

It is 25 degrees right now. Reynold tells me the temps will be up in the 50s by Sunday - sure hope so.

Happy Saturday friends. One of my nieces turns 30 today and her sister is giving her a surprise birthday party. Always enjoy being with family. Wish we would get together more often.
