Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, it will be nice to see you after all these years. It has to have been at least 6 years ago the last time we had dinner? We'll look forward to it. We can decide where to go as your trip get's closer. Marcy, when you say rabbits, you mean "real" rabbits? Yumm to Pizza. We don't get i...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Welcome back DeeJay. I'm glad you had a nice time away. Charlie appreciates both kind offers from you and Marcy, but you guys will have deal with your own messes! Ha! Marcy, I did laugh at the mental image of you trying to run out of a jewelry store with a 6.5 carat ring on your finger! It was so ha...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

We've had a nice semi-lazy day. Charlie decided to go through the master closet and put sweaters on the upper shelves, which means he decided I needed to try on clothes and put what didn't look nice anymore in the Goodwill pile. Then he decided to see what was in the storage unit we could get rid of...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, they are simply STUNNIN! I'd have to get some apparatus to attach to my head with mirrors on both sides to be able to see them during the day!! Enjoy the London Broil. I just got back from picking up the live blue crabs. I was #1 this morning, so I got ALL the jumbos!

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, ahem, where are the pics of the new sparklies you took? Sounds like a lot of shopping at Simply Mac, but not too successfully. I'm sure you'll like the Tumi Air 2 case. Today was the first time I got to go out with my new Tumi Sling. We went to Tommy Bahama first to use $100 off they sent us ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

I hope you have a great time in Michigan DeeJay. Deegee, even if you don't have an Apple Store, you can buy your phone from Apple and they ship it to you. There's nothing wrong with getting at AT&T though. Make sure you add AppleCare+ (even if you get it from AT&T). It's $99, but it gets you...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thank you Rod. I couldn't be happier with them. I have them set on the coffee table about 3 feet away so I can watch them sparkle. How lame is that? :lol: That's not lame in the least! After all, how else are you supposed to see them? It might look a little pretentious if you walk around carrying a...

Yes, it was monogrammed when I walked in to pick it up. But he said it only takes a minute to monogram them to begin with. You get to choose the color of the monogram, which is cool. I chose the same blue as the blue in the bag, which looks really nice. And I must admit, I do love my wedding ring! T...

I don't sell them back to either a carrier or Apple. I sell them to Gazelle.com and get more money for them. You might want to consider that. I picke...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Man, I would hate to have Marty's schedule. I used to travel a lot for work. Wouldn't do it again for anything! I'm sure you did get wife brownie points though for having lunch ready! I had a very quiet day. I'm sure I mentioned Charlie's in NY visit family. I slept in, got up and went to the crab p...

Yes you do! I never heard back from the people about the Burmese Kitten, so I'm sure it was sold a few weeks...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, all I know is the Tumi store told me the summer sale starts next week. I don't know if it's a Tampa thing or a national promotion, but the discounts she told me were pretty amazing. Since you have the iPad Air 2, I thought you might find this case interesting. I personally don't like typing o...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Hey, just a quick check in. I had the afternoon off. Turns out when you make a placement, you get to leave work after lunch on Friday. It's a nice perk for sure. So, I went shopping and saw the Apple Watch in person and really really really like it. Santa will definitely be putting one under the tre...

Zoe, you didn't vent, and even if you did, you have every right to vent. You guys are in a difficult situation at the moment and the uncertainty D is facing has great impact to you both. I get it.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Zoe, I can understand the frustration, but most recruiters only call when they have some news. In our profession, we're for the most part 100% commission. That's not an excuse, but it does explain why recruiters may not call just to say they don't have any news. I'm sure D will land a great position...

Hey.......Deejay, yes Charlie = Santa!

Zoe, did DH provide a list of companies he'd like to work for to the recruiter?

It was a long day at work, but a productive one.

That's about all I can think of.

Deejay, just a quick response (still at work). I don't have the Apple Watch - YET. I told Charlie he could give me one for Christmas, so it will likely not be on my wrist when you visit.

Deegee, I've asked Santa to put one under the tree this year. I'm a watch nut and have spent a mild fortune on watches over the last two years and not inexpensive ones to say the least. But I know I have to have an Apple Watch too! You're making a smart move given everyone in your family is iPhone a...

Marcy, tell Marty I'd ask the same question. Why do you live there? Tell him if you guys moved here, he'd be able to play golf every weekend of the year. Plus he'd have a watch buddy!
