in america, you can write them off as a business expense, then depreciate their value as further in later years.

not sure how canucks do that.
how many pucks can you write off lost in a spring thaw?
A wireless mouse might be a plan. Hmm, wireless numeric key pad? That might actually work. Here in Canada we depreciate that stuff and call it "capital cost allowance".

That's why I bought an electric stapler!

It's all over the place now TL! I have a wireless mouse, it was fairly inexpensive. It's tougher to remember to pick up your wireless items before you wander off.

A hot shower (maybe for the two of you together) and then a back rub for him.

Just a thought. Would it make it easier for him if you showed up at his busiest time and then put in your five hours? Don't make the mistake of pushing yourself too hard. You still need time to get back to your regular hours. I am glad that you took those two breaks. They will be needed for a month or two, regardless of how good you feel. I am so happy to hear that you are doing well and taking it slow. Keep up the good work.
Thank you AddieIt's always so nice to have you in my corner. I have been trying to give dh a little more tlc lately.
Had a great day for mothers day today. Up early to go to 7 30 am mass, then we had a catering for 250. Home by 1 00, then off to lunch, all 3 of us together, a nice family day. Home for a nap then we just got back from the movie"Gatsby". Nice treat to go for a cherry berry frozen yogurt after the movie, just a great day overall. Hope you had a wonderful mother's day as well.

We all love going to museums as well. Every summer we take at least a week off from work just to get away. There are so many interesting ones. This year we have to stay a little closer to home, with all of the mounting medical bills coming in. I have been looking in Omaha, NE this year trying to find some fun ones there. We have been to the ones in town here a couple times each. A person can always seem to find something different everytime you go regardless if you've been there before.

Today I did a bit of shopping and then went to mums for a chat and coffee

This afternoon I got a phone call from mum wanting me to come over, she had fallen over in her kitchen, there was some water on the floor that hadnt dried from the mopping

I jumped in the car and headed straight over there, it is only about a 10 minute drive

I gave her some Nurofen and made her a nice cup of coffee, she just wanted me there as it gave her a bit of a shock and her ankle hurt a bit and her knee and legs where she fell but she is OK!

I just get so worried when I hear that she has had a fall

Glad she's OK. It can be scary for older folks when they fall. It get's harder to bounce right back up from a fall when you're older.
