An Open Letter

to my friend.

I know you are a night owl, and you know I am not. The next time you call me that late in the evening and wake me up after I've been asleep for an hour, I will return your call early in the morning when I've been up for an [more]

Re: An Open Letter

At a prior employer, I could absolutely count on my boss coming up with something absolutely urgent that had to be done on Friday afternoon before every long weekend or if I was leaving on vacation. I learned to be sure I had everything else done by [more]

Re: No Shampoo?

I was reading about using conditioner only awhile back, and it seems to work for me. I use shampoo about once a week or when I'm really sweaty like after a race.

I found it amusing

this morning, at a grocery store where I don't normally shop, to notice that the baby food is on the same aisle as the pet food.

Re: Question for Rosewine

Sorry, I've been away. They made a change to the law a couple years ago. There's still a deduction, but the amount and way to calculate it changed. I don't have time right now to look it up, but you could search the DOR website. I know it's in the [more]

Re: Diana's revival!

Nice to see you again. I'm sorry the year was a mess and hope 2015 is better for all of us.

I'm in the camp of the number is okay, but the fitness has gone to someplace else. If fact, I am down 5 pounds this month, mostly stress related and [more]

Re: Inventory

Since DH ended up back in the hospital for a couple more days last week, I wasn't home to continue the inventory.

We are now at 1300+ bottles and I have a better idea of which ones will be disposed of without sampling. Of course much of [more]

Re: Inventory

Yes. I'm using a spreadsheet with the items I'm most interested in. I'll probably import it to Cellar Tracker when I know what we have.

Re: Inventory

NOT a typo. As of today, I'm at over 1000 bottles. The oldest is a 1987. I'm taking a 1988 to a party tonight along with some other wines from the 1990s.

DH says we won't drink it in our life time. I tell him I intend to try! With his brain [more]

Inventory

I've been griping at DH for sometime about getting the cases of wine out of the living room and into the basement where they belong. I can't carry them down those stairs or I'd do it myself.

His excuse is that he has to get the wine in the [more]

Re: Try to take the high road

Yeah, google me and I don't even show up.

Google me and most of what shows up is race results.

Re: Anyone up for a Revival?

My plan for the new year is to get back to marathon training. After doing a half yesterday, I definitely need it. My training pretty much stopped when I started spending my available time keeping track of DH medical appointments and meds. My weight [more]

Re: Dead Board?

At the moment, we're trying to fatten up DH who lost 25 pounds and in about 6 weeks. I don't recommend brain surgery as a method of losing weight. Especially not a second surgery less than a month after the first.

Re: An Open Letter

I have to agree, however, the day before Thanksgiving will always be know as National Pig Out Day in my mind.

At a prior employer in the late 70s/early 80s, it was a day long pot luck with foods of no particular nutritional value to [more]

Re: "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up"

There was a short piece about this in the paper the other day and I put the book on hold at the library. #243 on 33 copies, so it will be awhile.

I've spend a fair amount of the last couple weeks tidying things up and moving some of clutter [more]

Online Cancer Support Group

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good online support group for cancer caregivers? I have a referral for a local group that meets a couple times a month, but doesn't seem to have an online presence. Right now, one more appointment is one too [more]

Re: The Next Chapter

That seems to be the case with all New England states--growing up, the hour and a half from my house to UCONN was a huge amount of distance to put between me an my family. In Dallas, that is the morning fight with traffic. It is a weird sense of [more]

Re: New protocol?

DH is scheduled for radiation treatment 5 days a week for 6 weeks, but each session only takes a few minutes. Typically we are in and out within about 15 minutes, including any wait in the waiting room when we arrive.
