Morning msm, PF, Addie. Hope you all have lovely days. I'm off to restrain my coworkers!
Good morning Alix...your day sounds more fun than mine. I know a couple co-workers I'd like to restrain!

Slow start for me this morning, got the blood work done and now, I'm back home and reluctant to get started for work.

And they really do. One of them shows up every day to check on me and make sure I am still alive. Just a phone call won't do. They know how I can lie. "I am okay. Thanks for calling." While I lay of the floor waiting for help!

That happens to me too. Especially when I sit for too long.

Good morning to all of you also, I think. I went to my 10 o'clock appointment and as soon as I got back my ride to my next appointment was waiting for me. I was up all night and I am exhausted. I was thinking my second appointment was at 4 p.m. I have to cancel some of these appointments. There are just too many and they are mostly a follow up appointment. Nothing major. I don't know why, but appointments exhaust me. It takes all my energy and just sucks it out of me. Two in one day is just too much. I think I am finally beginning to feel my age. Time to slow down a little.

I missed this morning. It was a good one, worked for 11 hours. Trying to get things caught up before my appointment on Friday!

Good morning. I shouldn't be awake this early, but mizzphinz is having breakfast with her brothers and it was impossible to stay sleeping.

Good Morning. We have a balmy 20°F, the sun has not reached us yet and I'm wondering why I don't have any coffee in front of me. Off to the races!!

I'm awake and hungry. I had a small container of vanilla yogourt (too sweet) and am trying to decide what else my stomach won't dislike. This is hard before my first coffee and I'm not about to have coffee on an empty stomach, yet.

Chilly willy here today. When I got up at 7 it was 24F. And, now, about 2 hours later, it's screamed all the way up to 28F. Zowie.

At least it's sunny and there's no precip happenin' and none predicted.

The bird feeders are doing a brisk business and it looks as though I'm going to have to put more suet in the suet cages. I just glanced out the window,and it looks like I'm going to have to fill the feeder out front. It's totally empty.

Don't have any pressing things to do today, just the holiday open house at Glenn's mom's assisted living facility and that's not until 4 this afternoon. Mulled cider, hot chocolate, Christmas cookies, hot and cold munchies and a tour of all the Christmas trees, along with a judging form to choose our favorite. We went last year and enjoyed it. I think the old folks enjoyed it more because there was activity and plenty of people to talk to.

Other than the visit to Glenn's mom's place, we're stickin' close to home and...inside.
