    Thanks so much for reading my blog & taking the time to give your insight. It is truly appreciated especially since you can relate.

    I've been off work since the 19th and go back tomorrow. I decided that I didn't want to go back to a full week of work. You haven't/hadn't met the new boss? Do you like him/her? Expecting big changes?

    Is L starting college? At your school, right? It's a scary, but fun, thing to do. I'm sure she'll be fine and probably even thrive...after she gets past the first part.

    I cooked a pot roast last night in my Instant Pot. So tender and juicy! I've made stew too, but I prefer the stew in the crockpot vs. the Instant Pot. Boiled eggs made in the IP are soooo easy to peel! LOVE that!!

    My job is good. I've been doing some extracurricular stuff at work that are not specifically my job related. My boss supports it and I enjoy it, so that's good. My daughter does still live with us. She and her boyfriend got engaged in December, so now they're planning a 2022 wedding! Very happy for them both. I told her I'd be happy to help plan, but only if she asks. I'm doing my best to be supportive, not overbearing. emoticon

    Good to hear from you too! I LOVE my Instapot! I'll be using it to cook the pork roast tomorrow...at least half of it The other half will be cooked after dinner. It's a BIG roast!

    How was Christmas? New Year? The job? L?

    Sorry that I've been silent for so long! I'm glad the storm didn't cause you any issues.

    His best friend?!?! That is so wrong. He's her dad, not her friend. Dumb...bunny. (I censored myself! :D)

    Three years (or maybe five) will go by faster than you think! Hope you can make it and retire comfortably.

    DD and her BF have moved in with us. Their lease was up and their roommates decided to move out. They couldn't find new roommates and could not afford the place on their own. They are going to live with us to save money and maybe buy their own house when the market is less crazy. We'll see how this goes.

    Sorry for the delay!!! Life totally got in the way! Did any of the storms hit you or your family? Is the "storm season" over?

    L's folks are idiots. I'm glad you can help her out and be there for her.

    We have a new person starting on Monday and I will be taking the lead on training him. That should help me fill some of my days. My micro-manager lead scheduled a mtg for us at 7 on Monday morning. I can't tell if she actually wants to meet or if that's her way of telling me how to train him or ???? I guess I'll find out on Monday!

    How are things with you? Has it cooled down? And how's the reorg at work going?
