Just hanging in here. I have been gone every day this week, too. I just need some time to slow down. I had 2 MRIs this week and it seems like my mom and I can't get out of going to doctors.

I am trying to downsize some, but that is not working well. I am expecting company so I am cleaning house and can't stay on here. Just thought I would drop in and wish everyone well.

Hi. Well it seems like we went out and partied every night last week but we were out celebrating Marty's new job. They had a non-company sponsored party Friday night and we were overwhelmed at how many people came out and said such nice things to Marty. I think there were at least 75 people there. Saturday we finished our to do lists and this morning Marty took off to the airport. He starts his new job in the morning. I am sure the first day will be spent with HR and getting him all set up and organized. We'll know more about his job and how much he'll be traveling this week. Wish me luck there.

I kept myself very busy today with projects and errands. I have tomorrow off as well.

Take care.
Marcy

Char, it sounds like you have been very busy. Sorry your heal is still bothering you. Those take time to get better. Good luck for that being a bad memory soon. I am glad to hear you got yourself a safer car. I hope this one isn't in the shop too much. Glad to hear you had some rain. We should get a little this week. I am sure trying to put things away right away now. Marty just brought home his stuff from the office so now we have more stuff to go through. Aak. It never ends. Lol.

We had a busy weekend. We did some more housevork, went to Denver tomplayband do some shopping, and went over papers for Marty's new job.

Well take care.

Hi everyone,

I am sorry about being pretty much AWOL for a while. I have been gone almost every day for almost 3 weeks now. There were doctor appt., PT (which I don't recommend for heel spurs that affect the Achilles tendon after having bad results), taking my car to get fixed a couple of times which resulted in having to get another car as the problems were becoming really major, then car shopping, etc.

I did get a used hatchback which suits my needs. I feel a lot more secure in driving now as I am not always worried about being broken down beside the road.

Marcy, I am sorry about your work problems. Hope things get better. Good for you on the cleaning and remodeling projects. The cleaning and reorganizing that I did energized me and has made me feel a lot better with less clutter. There is always work to be done though to keep it that way and I have been gone a lot!!!

My computer has also been trying to slow down on me. I had put a free program on to speed it up but it did the opposite so I removed it and it has helped a lot.

I am finally getting somewhat caught up on e-mails. Only 148 more to go. LOL

It rained for two days. I needed the rain and was glad to get it. It saved me from having to water. I still have tomatoes here but I know that won't last long.

I have gained some weight and now trying to get it off again. I relied on walking exercises and now that I can't do things that involve the Achilles tendon I can see the difference.
I have to find some substitute exercises.

Well, I am cleaning house today so I need to get back to it. Hope everyone has a good weekend. Our weekend here is suppose to be warmer (in the 80s) and I am ready for some warmer weather. Any day of warm weather is one less day of cold weather. (grin)

Hi everyone. Sorry I didn't check in last night. I went to supper with a friend then we went shopping. I ate chicken which I am allergic too and I got pretty sick last night. Then I sat up until after midnight last night sipping 7 Up making sure I was okay tom go to bed. It was a short night. The only reason I went to work is because I knew I'd catch a lot of grief about chicken making me sick. I think I am done with it. Rats.

Today we a long day at work mostly because I felt bad. I worked on procedures for most of the day because they needed to be done and it gave me something to do. I had lean cuisine Mac and cheese for lunch and a junior cheeseburger and a baked potato for supper. I am working on laundry and brought in my Target purchases from last night.

Marty is enjoying the beautiful weather in Arizona. A friend of his at work pulled me aside about a going away gift for him. Usually people get a picture of our facility and everyone signs it. He found a picture of Marty leaving work in his big red pickup that looks cool because the headlights are streaked out. He said he'd print out that picture and put something on the picture like "why they put in 15 mph speed limit signs". The funny thing is he wants to wrap it with something outside saying from all your friends at work and then only he and I will sign it. He will of course get a second picture and have everyone sign it.

Speaking of laundry my buzzer is whining. Take care.

Marcy

We had 7 inches of snow yesterday. I can't believe it. It was very wet snow so places around town had power outages. Marty had to winterized our RV but didn't get our sprinklers blown out yet.

I just told Marty I didn't realize his new job would be so much work for me. I am BEAT. Yesterday we went through clothes and cleaned out our bedroom. We had about 10 trash bags to throw out. Today I got up about 7. Marty wanted some homemade biscuits for breakfast. We had so much snow on the ground I knew he wouldn't be going to play golf so I asked him if he would cook lunch for me and my girl friend. I was going to meet her for lunch so he made us some Indian food. After lunch she and I made chocolate chip cookies. I sent a lot of cookies home with her and froze some. The little baggie of cookies in the kitchen is going to work with me tomorrow.

After my friend went home we started working on our spare bedroom. I have a lot of my pictures, crafts, nicknacks, blankets, nail polish, books, etc in there so we moved things, dusted, vacuumed, threw a ton of things out and then moved my old desk in there and put the treadmill in the garage. Now I have a little desk, TV room where I can escape to if I want. I will plug in my iPhone and iPad in there and get those cords out of the living room. We still have to clean out the computer room. I told Marty our house has to weigh several hundred pounds less now. The computer room will be another huge project. We will work on it next weekend. I am motivated to get our main floor cleaned out so that will leave the linen closet, entry way closet, pantry and spice corner (a lazy susan). Then I will have to make sure and not clutter it up again.

I will be glad to go back to work tomorrow just to rest up.

Take care

Marcy

Hi. We attended our second funeral for the week tonight. It was very sad.

Marty left work after lunch. We had a guy coming by to give us an estimate on some work at our house. He went out and looked at a few cars he is interested in getting a commuter car at some point for driving to the airport.

We picked up fast food after the funeral then just watched TV. Marty's bat phone went off at 3 am this morning so he is in bed already. We are having cooler weather here this weekend but I am sure he play some golf. I am going to start cleaning out our spare bedrooms. We are moving all my office type of stuff to one of the bedrooms and then make our computer room his office.

Take care.
Marcy

Hi everyone. Yesterday was absolutely a horrible day at work. We went to supper last with my in-laws to celebrate Marty’s birthday (this Friday) and I had about 2 glasses of wine with dinner then we went to the club and I had a very full glass of chardonnay. I was going to get another drink but Marty “cut me off”. LOL. Probably a good call.

Work was much better today. Thank goodness. Marty went to play golf after work so I went to supper with a friend of mine tonight. I got home about 6:45. About 7 pm Marty called to see where I was. There were a bunch of sirens going off near the mall and he was worried about me. What a nice guy, huh? Sometimes I’ll go to the mall when I am bored and he is out doing something.

I had a subway sandwich for lunch and a taco for supper. Hmm, I am hungry now and it’s only about 8:30. Rats.

Well, take care.

Marcy

Hi everyone. Today was a little crazy at work so the day zipped by. We went to a funeral at one, of course that is always a sad occasion.

We took our own cars today so I came home and started cooking supper. I made tacos. I waited till about 6 and finally ate. About 6:15 I texted Marty and he was just done playing golf and was having a hot-dog at the club. The goofus. Now that is golf buddy is back in town in should know better. Lol.

My work laptop has a fried mother board so they need to order me a new one. I hope it is smaller and lighter.

I am playing with my new iPad tonight. I like it. It is clearer and quicker than the first generation.

Take care.
Marcy

Hi everyone. We had a busy weekend. We went to a friends house for supper and cards on Friday night. Saturday we got up early and went out to breakfast. Thence were killing time till 9 am so Marty could get a haircut so we went to SAMs. Bad idea. I now have a white iPad 2 and we bought the Star Wars blue ray set. I got the 32 g hard drive on my iPad 2. It is more than I need but I thought it was not a bad idea for $100 more. I am selling my iPad to a friend. I am letting her have it for less than I can get for it but I feel funny selling things to friends too.

Last night we watched the first 3 episodes of the Star Wars series. I made us a batch of popcorn and that was our supper.

Today Marty had a 7:45 tee time. I got up and went to the grocery store tight away. When ingot home I started cleaning house. I decided to wash all our bedding and change sheets too. I was still working on it at one when Marty got home.

This afternoon I had to make up the astronomy newsletter and get it posted online. I am down to 2 more batches of laundry then I can play with my iPad. It fell on the floor already too. Darn it. I had it setting on my Mac and it slid off and hit the floor. I can't believe I did that on the second day I owned the darn thing.

Well enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Marcy
