Last day of the month of November....where exactly did the month go?  Scares me a bit to think how fast December will fly!

What fabulous Friday plans do you have?

Good Morning

Friday has arrived.....yeah!  It's a chilly morning but looks like the sun may be ready to pop out.

DD told me this morning that the generic cholesterol drug I'm taking has been recalled....glass particles may have been incorporated into lots of the drug.  My lot doesn't seem to be on the list but thinking I really don't want to be taking it.  I love the fact that they have a recall but don't worry if you have a problem from it it won't last long.  Great.  Not sure they are going to do anything about this without my lot number being on the list.

As for the work day I know what I need to be doing today but it's going to be a long day....end of the month, billing.  Tedious, repetitive work that can make for a long day.

After work I think DD and I are going to try to get some things together to move over to the new house tomorrow.  Their furniture is arriving tomorrow....very exciting for them.  First place DD has actually gotten to pick out furniture and decorate since DSIL's apartment was pretty much a bachelor pad and since he knew that they would be moving at some point he didn't want to invest money or time into the place.

Guess I'd better get the work wagon moving.  Hope you all have a fabulous Friday!

Here it is, 8:30, and I still haven't done anything productive.  The past several days have just been so frustrating with so many of our internet based applications not working properly, I just don't want to try today.  I guess, though, that I'd better, since they are paying me to at least try to work.  I am SO glad it is Friday!

Good morning! In terms of weight loss I  have not only veered off the road but landed in a ditch!

Last day at work....maybe...I think.... :) Talked with boss yesterday, good talk. I told her to  just let me know if she needed me  a couple days  next week. I don't think she will and I'm ready to "retire". DH said he had plenty of jobs around here I could  do....hmmmm

We had a slow day art work yesterday but i had a couple of interesting  conversations with  customers I know. One was a woman  about my age. She divorced her husband of 26 yrs awhile back, married another guy, divorced him.Yesterday she  made a few  comments that lead me to  believe she  now felt it was a big mistake. She commented that he would never take  her back. Sad  really. The another guy invited me to join a running  group. He said they run on Sunday mornings and then  head to the coffee shop  for  coffee and pie! I said I could handle the  pie but need to work on the running on my  own for a bit.

I'm ready for  snow!!I  I know, I know; but snow is best  early in the winter. I changed up my FB picture  and am  waiting for a friend to email a " couldn't you have  at least waited until Dec!!!!"  message.

Hope everyone has  a great day!

Good morning ladies.  Oh my, love the sign Susan ... I'm looking for the right place to make a U turn, but I just see barriers and obstacles preventing the U turn.

If any of you read my post yesterday, I mentioned it would be a long day since I was travelling with DH to the office.  Would you believe me if I told you it was a 12 hour day at the office.   Yep.  I am totally spent and exhausted this morning!   The long day did include going to dinner with head of sales and his wife, and our corporate attorney and his wife.  But after dinner ... back to work.  Geez!!!   My list for today is extremely long; involves a few items for the office and a ton of things for me to do on a personal level.  I'll be interested to see how much I can accomplish.  After I wrap up work related items, I plan to run a few necessary errands and then come home to begin cleaning the house and get laurndry rotating / organize paperwork and pay bills / make ornament bundles for the garland / etc etc etc.   I plan to put off a grocery run until this evening. 

Hope each of you has a pleasant day today.  Susan, hope everyone plays nice at work.  Scary info about your medication!  Good luck packing up your DD.  ;)    Margo, sounds like you need a hug ... {{{HUG}}}.  On the bright side, tommor is Saturday.   Patty, enjoy your last day at work!  Yippee!!!  Happy retirement.  Hey, what ever became of substitute teaching?   Waving hello to all!

Hugs,

 

Karen

I can understand exactly how you must feel about not wanting to work until the 'bugs' are all worked out. Maybe a nice walk around the office might make you feel a little more refreshed. Have a good day! :-)

That IS a sad story... and especially around the holidays... Interesting invitation... so the idea is to work-off the calories first. You'll have to let us know how that goes... :-)
