Your comments above reminded me of the photo below, and it certainly brought out the same gut reaction from me. I know you can look after yourself, but...even so....After the mean girls were really mean to me, coming here hurts me, I should be a better person, but it does, except for NIRDI's...
I send my love to all of you. and will catch up.
Happy Wednesday girls! @missy I'm sooo relieved Greg is healing well and biopsy is clear! Woo-hoo time to party! Love you girl. You're doing great.
@Bayek Sending you love and hugs. So sorry to hear of the home stress. I hope things get better.
@Austina i love that you have a chill day, its so fun to chill out and watch some TV! I have a light day today thankfully.
My Summer preloved BG setting arrived and I love it! It will hold a pink spinel that I bought from Precision Gems after Christmas sale. Hopefully a little bling brightens everyone's day! I'll send it to Klass to be set and sized in next few days. Love and hugs to all!
The problem with downsizing @missy is that everything is scaled down, and I don’t want a tiny living area. I still want a proper dining room because I do like to have friends over for dinner, and like that when you’ve finished, you can get up, leave everything and close the door! We’re finding the houses that are around 3000 sq ft, still have 4 or 5 bedrooms, that we don’t need, but the ‘great’ room, is too small. I’m not bringing much, but I want my dining and living room furniture, not just because I love them, (and they’re relatively new) but I want some familiar things around me, when we’re picking up our whole life and moving across the ocean. Hopefully something suitable will turn up soon, the housing market in Austin is really hot at the moment, and everything is selling really quickly.
I love the setting @bling_dream19, your ring is going to be gorgeous.
OMG @MMtwo, we had a similar problem recently, the smoke detector on the top floor started beeping, and the idiot that had installed had put the battery side over the stair well. Needless to say it was a devil of a job to change it whilst dangling on a ladder with Colin holding on to my ankles so I didn’t fall backwards over the bannister. As I said in my earlier post, some people seem to lack simple common sense.
My back is feeling much better - which is the way with Crohn's. One day you can't walk - 2 weeks later, it's like it never happened. I have an appt with the neurosurgeon next week to go over the results of the MRI, then an appt with the oncologist to get some new, growing lumps checked out and see what's going on there. Orthopedic surgeon at the beginning of Feb.
Crazy day at work. I had to revise scores on my employee appraisals. Grr. If my boss wants to change everything - he should write them. Oh well, wishful thinking. We had a mistake that I probably haven’t heard the end of yet. I am concerned they will tell us we can’t work remotely anymore.
My SIL left today. Other than those few days she was getting on my nerves it wasn’t bad having her here. She at least had dishes done before I got home from work. I sent her this picture of my “puppy” looking for her down the hall. I did take care of my fly swatter by the door; I haven't seen a fly in the door for months. Ha Ha.
I lifted today too.
@missy sweet and loving hugs to you my sweet friend. hahaha! the electricians are here to fix the stove hookup and now they say it's a gas problem, I shall never ever get why there are so many nincompoops in Texas How's Greg, how are you, text me! I'm making a concerted effort to lift my mood Missy, it's been really really horrible Missy, sort of like detached so I've missed so much here.. so sorry to not be here for you, pix are as always beautiful!.. love you.
@missy Hope Greg is feeling better by the day. Is he still working--or on sick leave? Nice that Costco was empty. Not something you hear very often.
Oh @Bayek, I’m so hoping everything get’s sorted out soon, just hang in there, it WILL get done. I’ve been trying to be very patient waiting for my kitchen floor to get finished, small potatoes compared to what you’re dealing with, but the new tiles are eventually going down on Monday, nearly 3 months since it all started, oy! Don’t let what’s going on suck all the joy out of being close to your DS, DIL and most of all, your gorgeous granddaughter. That’s the reason for your move, and in time, when all this mess is far behind you, you‘ll be able to enjoy seeing her grow up.
As you say @marcy, why bother asking you to do the appraisals if your boss doesn’t agree? It’s nice having guests, but nicer when they leave At least your SIL helped out which is something. How’re you feeling now about your sapphire setting?
I’m starting to feel cold just hearing the words Polar Vortex @canuk-gal You must be a hardy lass living in those conditions. Your new ring is lovely, you must be thrilled with it.
I’m really happy to hear your back is feeling a little better @mrs-b, being in pain is miserable, and any relief is a welcome one. Everything crossed your appointments next week go well, and you only get good news. Epsom isn’t that far from us, it’s the other side of Surrey to where we are.
We actually had town houses where we lived before @MamaBee, and they had even more stairs that we had in our house. Our current house is 3 storeys, so ideally, we’d like a single storey, but will probably end up with a 2 storey to get the room sizes and plot size we’re looking for. I’m not sure if they’re the same there, but essentially here, they’re what we call terraced houses, i.e. adjoined both sides. My friend Tricia lived in one, and they had extremely noisy neighbours.
Sounds like you enjoyed the performances @Daisys and Diamonds
I’m so glad you’re feeling a bit more optimistic now @missy, I think there are an awful lot of people feeling that way I hope Greg is continuing to improve each day, and I really hope this is the beginning of better things for us all. No news here about the vaccine, our Dr’s website is now saying they’ll be texting people to go for their jab. Yesterday figures showed 2,000,000 people were vaccinated in a week, so I ‘should’ get mine end of March if they keep this up. I’m really hoping that your dear parents can get appointments soon, at least that’ll be one less worry for you. It’s hard being patient, but at least I don’t have any underlying health conditions that make me more susceptible.
I hope today is a good one for you @Polabowla, I really wish there was something there to help you.
Another lazy day here, I heard from Graham this morning that the tiler is coming Monday to do the kitchen floor Patience isn’t normally one of my virtues, but boy will I be glad for it to finally be done.
I did my roots this morning, honestly my hair is so white it looks like I have bald patches when they need doing.
How can tomorrow already be Friday? I haven’t been out of the house for nearly 2 weeks
