Hey All. Happy and Merry. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and fun, but safe New Years Celebration! For some reason, I stopped getting notifications of new posts, so I just kind of got offline with this thread. Deegee, the new ride is fabulous! We're really loving our new Mercedes SUV, so I hop...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I had no idea yesterday would turn out to have been the most fun day I've EVER had at any company I've worked for. Any. I didn't realize we would not work. None. They started the morning off with Mimosa's and they flowed all morning. Since most of us were semi-plotzed, they had Uber Taxi's pi...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Today is our founders holiday lunch, followed by Secret Santa. My office is beyond casual every day of the week (I can get away with shorts, a t-shirt and flip flops if that's what I want to wear) but today, we're asked to wear suits as they're taking us out to a fancy dancy place. My suit shrank. I...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Well, today just sucked big 'ol sour lemons. I had to get to the MRI place early, only to find out the scanner was down and a technician was on his way to get it running. So, they asked me to come back around noon. This meant I had to not drink or eat anything I had a major headache by the time I re...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, those rolls look so yummy! We had a nice weekend ourselves. The weather wasn't very holiday-like, but we managed to do a wee little bit of holiday shopping yesterday. Santa is making a very small visit this year, with the new cars and everything else we've had to shell out the last few months...

DeeJay, I don't get anything in print anymore. All my reading is via my iPad. But I'm more into Magazines as opposed to books.

Hey, We had a nice day yesterday. We had to go find a new file cabinet for the home office. Wound up ordering a Hon from Office Depot, which will arrive this coming Wednesday. Merry Christmas to us.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

We're not exchanging gifts this year and with Emi and Eri, we're not decorating either. They'd destroy the decorations we've spent the last 35 years collecting. We've just spent so much money this year with new cars, the kitties, Charlie's eye surgery and we've both spent a lot of money recently on ...

LOL DeeJay! I tell 'ya what. I'll leave the key to our condo at the Concierge desk and you do the same at yours. You all come on down (Emi and Eri will need food and water during your stay) and Charlie and I will head to your condo in Chicago. I'm over this warm weather for the holidays. Yes I am!

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I went with Charlie during my lunch break and saw the car. We both really liked it. Of course we should as we optioned with about $18K in upgrades, so it's really luxe'd out. But no, we didn't get it as we're going to wait for the other car to come in later this month before we make a final d...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I'm really enjoying the car a lot. It's filled with so much tech though. And even though I'm a techie at heart, it's a lot to learn. A lot! Charlie's car will eventually find its way here. Hard to know it's just 4.5 hours from us and there's nothing we can do to see it. I'm sorry you've got t...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks Marcy! Actually, Charlie's new GLC is already made and sitting in Brunswick, GA. Because the GLC is a completely new model (it replaces the GLK) Mercedes is holding literally thousands of them at what are called Vehicle Processing Centers around the country and they won't release them.

Hey everyone.........I hope you had a good weekend. Mine had an unusual (but good) turn. Friday afternoon, the manager of the Mercedes (who takes really good care of us after all these years) called and asked if I'd come in on Saturday and pick up my car. This was not the way he had originally wante...

Hey Everyone, Sorry for being MIA. For the past week, I've been sick. It started with a nasty stomach thing, followed by one of the worst colds I've had in a long long time.
