What was the most favorite thing that happened to you this week?Page 13 of 18    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18)
Hallie.....So happy for you getting offered a job. It must feel so good. I have now been out of work for over 3 months. I am so glad I thought ahead when I was working and always stashed money away in my savings account. Guess you just never know when you will need it. Hopefully I will find something soon.
Best thing that happened to me this week.....took my mom to the oncologist for her follow up appt. She had to have a hysterectomy last month at age 79 because it was discovered she had uterine cancer. Happy to say she got a wonderful report and is cancer free.
What a scare....surgery was rough on her....intensive care for 4 days. In a way I am glad I lost my job because it gave me a chance to take care of her. I realize how blessed I am even when it seems things are falling down around you. Life has a funny way of showing us we are strong enough to make it thru anything!!
Anyway......thats my most favorite thing this week!!!
Take care .......Deb

Jim that must be a GREAT relief, those credit cards can be hard to get paid off. Good for you. Yikes root canal, that is painful. Good luck with that.

Debbie, that is hard being out of work for so long. However sometimes what seems to be bad can turn out to be a blessing in disguise. I'm glad to hear your mom is doing better and being able to be there must have been such a relief on you. I sure hope you find a job soon.

My favorite thing this week, I've got an offer on my Shopping Center Site!! I told my Real Estate Agent to try and work out the rough spots and try to make this deal work!! It will break my heart, not to have to come North every year and maintain this property. Why I might even get my ex, out of my life, once and for all! I know as soon as I can, my cell phone
is going to be thrown against the first brick wall, after this deal goes thru. If someone wants to get a hold of me, it will have to be thru this site or come and knock on my front door. I wonder if I will know how to act, if it really does sell?!?

Good luck easygoing. With the slow economy selling any property isn't easy.

LOL, Crash I hope you find SOMETHING to be happy about.

My favorite thing this week:
I just went out to dinner with 2 old girlfriends I grew up with. One flew down to Florida from NY and is staying with another friend in West Palm Beach, they drove up today so we could get together. It was GREAT chatting and laughing about the good times and the old neighborhood. In fact one of the girls use to hang out with me and my 2 sisters, my dad would always call her his 4th daughter. Anyway it was great getting together!

Yeah Swing and Crash, just keep it to yourselves and don't tell me.
Boy, I know who I count on to keep things hush, hush.

Bucsgirl you are Welcome, and Thanks, I am sure your thoughts and prayers mean a lot to Spacey,
Laura has been thru hell lately and in spite of it all she has been staying strong, she is an inspiration. Just hope she starts posting again soon.

That's funny Hallie, about the alarm. Best wishes with your new job!

And thanks Hallie. I was feeling pretty good until last week, all summer I have been mowing my yard, excercising, yard work, ...and odds and ends, then I went to clear my throat *a-hem* when I pulled my back again, go figure (WTF¿) . I have an appointment Thursday to get an epidural shot. Hope it works, I really want to avoid the surgery for a while. So my girls have been dressing me in the morning AGAIN and I haven't been able to shave my legs in a few days.... LOL, at least the hair on my legs are blonde so it doesn't show too bad (it's too hot to wear pants), the girls will put lotion on my legs but no way am I going to let them shave them, lol. I still have 1 more test and 1 more biopsy to go for in August, (I think, Yikes I hope that's all) hopefully everything will be fine!

I go back to work this week, the girls go back to school Monday on the 9th. Man the summer goes fast. Anyway Brevard county goes back to school the earliest here in Fl. So I have been shopping with my girls, you know, ... new "stuff" LOL. LOL my girls had to help me try on my clothes since I can't get my pants on and off by myself. the good news is......drum roll.....
We actully saved more yesterday than we spent. with sales and a coupon special we saved $163 and only spent $156.
Woo hoo! We got a lot of clothes and "stuff"! We have been having fun shopping the last week for school stuff and new clothes.
Tomorrow it's hair day for both my girls after work.
... It's always bitter/sweet for me going back to work. I miss my co-workers and students, lol but I don't miss having to get up at 5:30.

Hallie, I had just started a new job myself, fairly recently. Got the key, the alarm code, passwords...the usual. Well not the first time, it doesn seem if you're the last one to leave or the first one to come in, the first time on my last job I was the last to leave. Ehh...palms sweating, it seems it's a "right of passage" almost. How hard can it be, it's the blah blah, have instructions written out. Doesn't work, when you're THERE. I did everything, nothing happened. When I came to work there was a scathing memo that the alarm wasn't set. The whole company, this was an IT company that sells security systems, last job, so it was a big deal. I went in and told them exactly, huh.
This job, it was just so rushed, again written by someone else. Sure enough, the first time I was the first one there, had the post it note in hand, punched it in exactly. The NOISE, the screaming that bursted my eardrums, I have a finger jammed in my ear, calling the alarm company, what's your address...ehh I don't know I just started and hadn't fired up my computer. I'm trying to talk to them but of course it's hard to hear with the screaming alarm. I gave them my name, and managed to find a piece of stationery...meantime my bosses' business partner had already been called. It finally got turned off remotely. I wasn't just sweating, I was discombobulated, unhinged.
By the time my coworkers came to work, they were laughing about it, apparently it happened to them, too. The ringing in my ears calmed down later in the afternoon. Not funny, and I DID do everything as instructed. I have my own post-it note, and it's never happened since.
The police didn't come, just know you're not the only one. It's so simple, it's a code when you come in and a code when you leave. Because it all happened to them it had to happen to me, being the NEW person.
I'm so glad you have a new job, I really hope you enjoy it and it works out so well for you. Other than the alarm terror, I've never had a job that I actually enjoyed and is more stress-free than any. I never realized how important that is. I hope you have the satifaction, the appreciation...yeah sometimes I have to ask...but when I do, it's so gratifying.
And Nancy, I SO remember when my kids were school-age, you're so much the mom after my own heart. I didn't want to worry my kids, somehow I always made sure they were where they had to be, and I was there, by the grace of God. I remember, and just know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers for the best results possible. You're such a special person and a blessing. I've had a back injury, when I had to literally roll of the side of my bed, crawl to the phone and call in. Everything was just so incredibly difficult and unbelievably painful. That was years ago, not something I want to remember, I'll pray that you'll have the best medical treatment and for the wisdom for those who are taking care of you.
You're important, beyond the scope of language to your family and you're important here! Don't ever think you're not, this is a better place because you're here!!

LOL, Bucs, at least your co-workers had a good sense of humor about it. Hope things are going well with both you and Hallie on your new jobs.

And thanks Bucs girl you are too kind and remember you are special too!

I got my first epidural today (LOL I didn't even get one when I gave birth, they came out too fast) Anyway I guess I'll see how it works for me. It hurt more than I thought, the novocain is beginning to wear off so I'm starting to feel the injection sights more.
Hope I'm one those that it lasts for years.

Nancy....hope you are feeling some relief from the epidural shot. In the past year I have had 3 of them. I got about 2 weeks relief from the pain. Finally decided they just weren't worth it. They really hurt and I too would feel a lot of discomfort an hour or so after the shot. Best of luck to you.

Hallie...glad to hear the new job is going well. The alarm story made me laugh!!
I am still not working....5 months and counting. I am not too stressed over it yet and am contemplating some changes in my life. About a month ago I started a healthy eating plan and its going well. I eat nothing but fresh fruits and veggies, grilled chicken, etc. No red meat, nothing processed, frozen, boxed, no preservatives. I am amazed at how easy it is to eat healthy. I have lost 11 lbs. Its not a diet its a life change. I am determined to stay on this track and do something good for ME!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!!

Yup Deb and since you would have to train your man, you could probably get him on sale, that's what nursey does.

Thanks for sharing the Deb. The Doctor said for some people the injections work and for some they don't. My back keeps going back and forth the last 2 days. It feels good, I start to move around and then it hurts again. But he said it can take up to a week before I see any real improvement. Hope it works.
Good for you, sounds like you are keeping a positive attitude about not finding work right away. Luckily you planned and saved in advance. Good luck with your lifestyle change!

Look what crawled out from under her rock! Nurse, if your going to address me in that tone you will definately get a response. Why you feel the need to constantly put people down is beyond me. What a sad miserable life you must lead.
You are probably a closet enabler who is being controlled by a man who has YOU trained.

No need to bow to me when you say Namaste

I 'm with you Deb. Really I think Nursealina likes to post so rudely just to see if she can get a rise out of people.

Still waiting for my favorite thing this week, the weeks still early so I'm keeping hope!

I had my first child move away, going to MA to Brandeis University. I shuttled her around the last two days, taking care of some last minute business.

I'm so happy for her, she's got friends in Boston and gotten lots of scholarship funds.

I am just sentimental, and I'll miss just knowing she's close by. It's a great opportunity for her and I know she'll do so well, I couldn't be prouder. I'm sure you parents understand.

Thanks, Hallie for the sweet note, you're a darling.

Bucs that is great! Funny how mixed our emotions can be, we are so proud of them and want them to do well, yet we worry and miss them. Best Wishes for your daughter!

LOL, Red you a riot, welcome back.

Deb she gets her flying monkeys on sale.

Nursealina, it's the way you go about things. Social skills and respect of others feelings is definitely NOT your forte!

JMO, Nurse but I prefer to squeeze my lemons, not crush them! I believe it makes my lemonade just a little bit sweeter!
