Trouble logging in on Friday (and Thursday)
Fri, 03-28-2014 - 8:32am

Am I the only one?  I can't login using my PC via IE, and now can only get on via my iPad.  I ran Norton security on my PC, but I wouldn't think that would cause me to get the, "Oops! we couldn't find the page..." Message?

Anyways, it's been a long, but full, week.  My family gets home from vacation today, poor dh has either the stomach flu or got food poisoning.  I googled it, and found that dolphins can carry salmonella, so I'm wondering if that is why his sick since they spent an entire day at discovery Bay. I have had a satisfying workweek, in that I can see how well respected I am among my customers. I love people-interaction, especially in observing different ethnicities And ages. I have so much legal work to attend to, not to mention taxes, and I have to work out some issues with my daughter this weekend. My anxiety is at an all-time high, so I booked a massage this afternoon. My mother is "waffling" on moving into the independent living facility. She also will not let me hire someone to come in and run errands for her. Perhaps this is my lesson on accepting that I am wanting to  control things for which I have no control over.  I believe  that is the source of my anxiety.   So I am taking a lot of deep breaths and meditating on letting go.  I really need a good workout to get some endorphin-inducing relaxation!  That is one reason why I am addicted to working out!    for my emotional health, I think I need to dedicate three days a week for dancing.

have a great weekend, everyone!

My mom left yesterday and I hate to say this but I was happy to see her go.  It was not a good visit.  She was whiny, complained constantly, moody, passive aggressive, guilt trippy...  UGH.  I wasn't feeling awesome so I'm sure that just amplified things.  I was sort of in shell shock yesterday after she left.  I had tons of work to do yesterday but instead, I went out to sushi with OP, helped him shop for the fundraiser this weekend and skipped the work party in favor of painting my nails, cleaning and finishing my book.

I'm feeling slightly more human today but I've got a ton of work to do.  I'm seeing a client at 1 p.m. and am going to work in some type of workout... just not sure what yet.  

I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for co-hosting the fundraiser tomorrow.  We are expecting about 50ish people.  Intellectually, I think it will be fun but emotionally, I want to hide under the covers...  Sealed

Fresh, I so totally understand your need to workout to relieve stress. Usually that oops error is a result of a cache problem. Often, just deleting cookies and temp files will take care of it. 

Gym, your fund raiser sounds completely awesome! Have fun and post pics. 

I hope Jean is having fun on the slopes. I am so ready for sun and heat it is unreal. We are expecting some 70s next week and it can't come soon enough for me.

I don't have a big weekend planned. I need 3.7 miles to reach 100 miles for the month and I will probably finish it up on the treadmill on Saturday because we are expecting high winds, rain and yes-snow. If it is nice enough on Sunday then my sister and I are going to do a long run of 7-8 miles. If not, then I am going to do a cross-fit class. 

Hope everyone has a relaxing time this weekend!

Yea!  I got on after deleting my temp files!  GR, 50ish people?!  Eegads.  I envision you pulling the covers over your head the day after the party!  And, Karla, 100 miles?!  That's AWESOME!

What a long week!  My massage was vunderbaar, and she is working out the deeper knots!  Now, I go to hot yoga with dd.  What a great end to the week!

Enjoy, everyone.

I couldn't get on yesterday either, but today, magically, no problems....GR and FSN, I am sorry about your 'mom' issues. Dealing with aging parents is so hard. Karla, I think I run about 200 mikes a year...100 in a month is very impressive! This has been a long week work wise. I have little to do but feel like I must be at my desk...I've deleted a lot of emails, and spent a huge amount of time online...two more weeks and my time will be mine! I went to dinner with colleagues visiting from Krakow last night...I don't know if it was the wine or the rich food, but when I came home, I was wiped out. I had planned a rest day for yesterday and tentatively one for today, and I took them both. Tomorrow, Zumba, then searching for a cell phone and a shower gift...have great weekends everyone!

SJ, I would imagine that "closing up" at work is mentally exhausting and a very stressful transition  Cut yourself some slack!  Still, I am envious.  My massage therapist said that she had some of the same/similar knots in her back years ago.  When she eliminated her life stressors, those knots magically disappeared.  She was amazed!  So, when my legal and family issues subside, I can't help but wonder if my knots will go away, too!  I think we grip our muscles, unconsciously, when we are in stress.  Perhaps the analogy is trying to control SOMETHING, when things in life feel out of control.  I am trying to meditate on that.  Regardless, my massage was wonderful, and although the therapists forearms and elbows were quite sore afterwords, I can feel my back muscles looseing up.

Now, I have to conquer the weekend...taxes, work-work, and legal preparation for a new lawyer.  "Calgon, take me away!"
