I was blessed to have known you my friend.

I am so glad you get to go home my friend so you can be near your kittehs and family *hugs* My thoughts and prayers are with you as always. *headbonks*

It's so great to hear from you my friend! I hope you get relief from your hip pain soon. I have been sick the past couple of weeks. I thought it was just a cold, but I never really got any better. I did take her advice and go to the doctor this morning. I have a bad sinus infection and strep throat that is causing my cough. I got some medicine, so hopefully I'll be well soon. Thank you so much for the hilarious LOL! I hope you have a great Easter :) *hugs*

I saw the wonderful news that you now have a treatment plan! Amen on the shopping too. You deserve it. Kick some ass my friend! *hugs*

By jadzia23 on Dec 5, 2015 at 8:52 AM

O hai! Happy Caturday to you too. I hope you get some rest and enjoy your day. I have a lot of running around to do today too. I'll also be leaving for Georgia tomorrow. *hugz*

By Sylviag on Dec 5, 2015 at 8:47 AM

Quick Hai and hugz and Happy Caturday. Getting off for a nap before some necessary running around

By jadzia23 on Dec 3, 2015 at 8:32 PM

I'm glad you've been able to get some rest and that you have a treatment plan now. I know you'll kick some ass!

By Sylviag on Dec 3, 2015 at 3:10 AM

Hai! Will pick up all the loving support LOLs later after some rest. xo

By jadzia23 on Nov 24, 2015 at 9:22 PM

Thanks so much! I had a nice bday. We went to my favorite pizza place for dinner and then home for cake and ice cream. I saved some for you. CYA is definitely the way to go with that trainee. I caught her on her phone yesterday. We are going to my sister's house for dinner on Thursday. Have you heard when your treatment will start? I found out today we'll be going to Georgia on the 6th. I'm not really looking forward to it. Do you like Adele? Her new album is out and it's great. I hope you get to hear it soon. I'm thinking of you :) *hugs*

I am missing brthdays right and left - Happy Yesterday Brthday! Lack of energy to make a spiffy LOL but sending lots and lots of lubs anyway. What did you wind up doing? Rats on the troublemaking trainee :( How has she been the last two days? Make sure you CYA with that one. Would the Gergia trip be this year still or next? Where are you and Mom having T-Day at?

By jadzia23 on Nov 22, 2015 at 8:30 PM

It's so great to hear from you! You're very welcome for the hospital katkeraoke. I would get a lot of doors closing on me too. It's still fun to sing though. I'm sure the dear old gentleman's minder was very busy trying to keep him from wandering too far. Hospitals really throw those with dementia off. When my grandma had it and had to to the hospital, she thought she was living in the past. I thought of you the other day when I was dealing with a very troublesome trainee who has caused a lot of drama. I hope I can keep this one in line. She is by far the most challenging trainee I've ever had. I think she's trying to get my manager and me in trouble, so we'll see what happens tomorrow. I might be having to go on another trip, to Georgia this time. I'm praying for you my friend. I hope you get back to good health soon. *hugs*

By Sylviag on Nov 22, 2015 at 3:36 PM

Thanks for the Hopsital katkareoke. One I started singing along, I noticed a lot of patient doors closing LOL Gotta tell you about this one dear old gentleman with obvious dimentia, I think he thought he was in a hotel. Every morning he would ask if anyone had fetched the paper for him yet, what was the TV schedule today and to be sure to let his daughter in to visit him (I understand she actually lived in CA) and stuff like that. He wandered around telling anyone who would listen various disjointed stories of hs life.. He was assigned a "minder" every day who set his hall boundaries and cajoled him back into his room for daily naps. He got hold of Bryan for 5 or so mins before Bryan extricated himself by saying I would be very disappointed if he did not get into my room immediately! LOL

My love and prayers go out to you my friend. I am here for you and just let me know if there's anything you need. *hugs*

I'm not a big fan of snow either. I think we're supposed to get more than normal. I hate driving in it. The crud viruses are already going around here. A lot have been sick at work, and I'm just waiting to get sick too. I got my flu shot too. I didn't get it last year, and got the flu. I'm glad the concert was great and that they played a good mix of old and new. Was there a big crowd? I'm sorry the trip caused a setback with your rehab. When is your doctor going to do another series of shots? I hope they help. There isn't a whole lot else they can do if they don't work out on the phones or with what I train them on. I think his problem is that he likes to talk too much. I hope the vet appointments go well and that Brodie hasn't gained any weight? Ted likes to eat too and he's a big boy. I think he's around 15 pounds. My weekend plans were a little different. We went to the Christmas Fair and then to dinner at the steakburger place, and today pizza at my favorite pizza place. What kind of meal did you make for the grandkids? I did see the typo in the message Jiskat sent, and knew she meant fog. That is a great lol of it though. How was your day? Have a great evening and Monday :)

By Sylviag on Nov 6, 2015 at 10:46 PM

It has been getting very cold and frosty at night and we may get some snow this coming week which is making the ski and board crowd very happy. Im waiting for the family, specifically the gkids to bring home the crud viruses from school and passs the around to everyone :) I did get a flu shot so hopefully can slide through the season without getting that at least. I'm not that big a fan except for the "snow and go away" kind :). Concert was great and they played a nice mix of old and new. There is hardy a song of theirs I do not like. Unfortunately the 4 hour drive there, the concert trying to sleep in a strange bed and 4 hour drive back the next day played hell with my back and set me back a week on rehab. The spine doc today said he wanted to do another series of sterid shots cuz PT and acupuncture alone willnot resolve all the pain issues because of the bone and joint probems Sigh Sorry about the trainee. If they don;t work out ont he phones, what else can they do? Kitties are all great. Brodie and Wee Willie go in for their annual next Tues and I am so hopingBrodie hasn;t gained any weight as she did not like his weight at his last visit. As I told another friend, he lives to eat. Any weekend plans besides the mall and eating ut? I plan to chill all weekend to rest my back. Bryan pans to putter around and clean up the yard of the bazillion pine neeldes tht fell in our last windstorm. SUn we;ll go out to make a family meal for the gkids at their house. Son and gal pal inH and oldes gson is taking cre of kids. Next week we'll go out in the evening and make dinner and hang out for a bit and then com ehome. you gotta love this one by our dear Jiskat - cracked me up. LOL

By jadzia23 on Nov 4, 2015 at 8:34 PM

Has it already turned to winter in Bend? It's still fall here, which is good. I'm not ready for winter yet. Did you get some snow? It's great you're going to PT and acupuncture and doing your exercises. I'm glad you're getting better and hope you get even better soon. It's great your MIL got her electric wheelchair and that she got her antibiotics before her bronchitis turned into pneumonia. It seems like everyone is sick right now. How was the concert? Did they play a lot of your favorite songs? I hope you had a great time. I've been doing ok. I got a trainee who didn't work out on the phones. He's been a little frustrating because he asks the same questions over and over, and he's a talker. How are your kittehs? Have a great Thursday :)

By Sylviag on Nov 3, 2015 at 9:33 PM

Winters just seem to get wilder every year. Everyone here is praying for snow so they can have an early start to the ski and snowboard season. I am going to PT and acupuncture, both twice a week, and doing my "homework" exercises. It is getting better but will be a slow process. At 64, nothing heals up fast LOL MIL finally got her electric wheelchair. She had plenty of practive with the loaner so didn't need any instruction. She had a bout of bronchitis and they got her on antiBs right away s it doesn;t turn into pneumonia. Other than that, all well in the High desert.

By jadzia23 on Nov 1, 2015 at 8:16 PM

It's great to see you on! I'm lucky that El Paso has been mostly spared from the horrible weather. We had some minor flooding and hail. It was so sad to hear about the deaths in the other areas. I'm so sorry that your back is still giving you trouble. I hope you find relief soon. Have you found anything that helps? I'm doing well, and work has been okay for the most part. Friday was kind of rough because of Halloween, but at least that's over. I'm glad you'll still be able to see Godsmack. I hope you have a great time at the concert! I hope you feel better soon. *hugs*

By Sylviag on Nov 1, 2015 at 5:35 PM

HI, glad to see you on! Just horrible weather in TX and so sorry for the loss of life:( Been kinda MIA again with back thing. Hope all is well with you and work. Still going to see Godsmack on wed. I got th tickets quite awhile ago nd do not want to miss them. We have a friend living in Yakima while she does a PA internship so will hook up with her for dinner before the concert and do some cathing up, Hugz

By jadzia23 on Oct 6, 2015 at 7:48 PM

I heard about the controversial ending to the game when I checked my phone before work. It's a shame the game had to come down to that. Hopefully they'll do better the rest of the season. I had never heard of that cake either, but it was really good. How is your MIL doing? I'm sure Bryan wasn't looking forward to his crown prep. How was your day? Mine was alright, though I still felt like a zombie. It didn't help that we had a bad storm that woke me up. We also had a tornado warning today, which is very rare for us. I don't know how Annie wakes up at 3:20. I can barely manage waking up at 4:30 for this lousy shift. Have a great Wednesday :)

By Sylviag on Oct 5, 2015 at 9:15 PM

It was not a pretty game but we di win in the end. APparently the end zone ref did not know the finer points of saety rules and should not have called it for us. Defense impressive, offense not so much. If Wilson wasn't such a scrambler we would have for sure lost. Hope the offense is better next game and Wilson gets more protection. That was a nice way to celebrate a birthday to go out for the main meal and have the cake at ome. I hae never evenheard of that cake and had to look it up. But I amnot a baker except for Christmas cookies. MIL took up a part of the morning and then a bunchof errands, making dinner, watching the ame about sums up the day and evening. Nothing exciting. You he my symathy and hope you are in bed asleep when I post this. Hve a great day tomorrow. Bryan has to hav a crown prep tomorrow which he is not looking forawrd to. I just saw the topo nnie's sg that she gets up at 3:20!!

I think my next Saturday will be the 24th. It will be nice to not have to go in for a few weeks. The last day I can use my vacation days is May 13th, the day before my anniversary. You have to use it all before your anniversary or you lose it. You still get paid for the days you don't use, so at least I got some money for them. The dinner you made sounds delicious. Did you have dessert? I went to my aunt's birthday dinner last night at the steakburger place, and then over to their house for cake. It was pretty good. I had never had White Forest cake. I need to find some new music too. How was your day? The Seahawks are having a tough time. I hope they can hang on to win. I don't think I'll be able to stay awake to see the end. It was so hard to wake up and be there at 6. Have a great evening and Tuesday :)

By Sylviag on Oct 3, 2015 at 9:29 PM

So no more Sat for 3 weeks? Yeah you better not lose any vavay time this year :) When is the last date you can use them? Ours was the end of the leave year which varied so sometimes it was in the early part of Jan. I have a pork loin an I found a rock pot reeipt tht sounded pretty good with the loin sliced up, onions, mushrooms, and diced tomatoes nd I will add lots of garlics and maybe somerosemary. Have it with mashed taters cuz both BI and newphew love those and I always make more than I normally would. Roasted caulflower and a salad. It was actually cloudy and drizzly which was a welcome it was nor predicted. The rest of the week is supposed to be mostly sunny and warm. So I gave myself the treat of playing on here all day. Nothing new on the radio that has interested me. I;ll have to start going through my ROlling Stones and listening to some of the groups they feature. Yeah - it's a Mon night game so I hope we do well. I am assuming you are just going to chill tomorrow - you deerve it.

By jadzia23 on Oct 3, 2015 at 8:44 PM

lol I was indeed on my uggghh Saturday shift today. At least it's over now, and I got to do a little catching up. I know it will be pretty hard when we move buildings. They're building a fancy new building for the claims department, and we will be getting the building they're vacating. It's a nice building and it has a huge training room, which we badly need. It also has a lot more space and is fairly new. I had heard a similar article about vacation time. I didn't even use all of my days last year because there was always something going on. I waited too long to use them. They don't roll over, so you either use them or lose them. I don't plan to make that mistake this time. I understand the worry about work piling up. That's happened to me before too. What will you make for dinner with your BIL and nephew? How was your day? Have you found any good new music lately? Will you be watching the game? I hope the Seahawks win. Have a great Sundog :)

By Sylviag on Oct 3, 2015 at 6:33 AM

I am assuming you are on your uggghh Sat shift today. A set 8-5 shift sounds good but it will not be fun moving. We had to do that once in my career and it is a logistial nightmare to try to pack, move, unpack and still conduct business. We had troops assigned to help do all the heavy lifting but it took weeks to get all settled in. And of course the IT portion of oving all the puter stuff and get it up and running, So glad you can have some realxing time off. Just having a vacation around the house will be good. Read an article about how US workers are taking less than their alloted vacation days (almost a week's worth) for many reasons. One big one is the amount of work piled up when you get back and I sure get that. I always had many HR cases going that noone else could really step into for just a week or so. Another was a fear the boss would think they were slackers (srysly??) and the fear of being replaced (some workers have a need to e "irrepaeable" but we all know weveryone one can be replaced. The other sad thing is with the advent o technology many people still stay connected to the offie by cell and email during vacation. However, it has been proven that people that take vaations and get a ood rest are in the long run more produtve and happier employees. Cleaned up the greenhouse yesterday and put it "away" for the year and washed all the window valances and ither puttering. Went to bed early. Nothing special planned this weekend other thn having BIL and nephew to dinner tomorow night.
