I don't think that is far fetched at all. I heard that if you have a nest hanging then others will give it a wide berth. (No one seems to know how far though) They even have those fake ones you can hang to help keep them away.

Really. Sometimes I amaze myself

Right now I am trying to watch a football game. I say trying, because I use an antenna for my local channels and I'm thinking the aluminum rungs on the roofers' ladder is messing with my signal My antenna is right next to it.

My dog just got into the garbage and ate some pastry I peeled off my Dad's sausage roll (too much pastry makes it hard to puree. Now I am following her around to make sure she doesn't get sick.....she is allergic to wheat!

Note to self - get a baby lock for the cupboard now that she has figured out how to open it!

I am reveling in the fact that our BC Lions, who started the season with an 0 and 5 record, just won the Grey Cup! And they did it here at home!

Now all we have to do is get that elusive Stanley Cup and I'll be happy!

Long list today, but Shrek is napping so my closet is off limits for now. Looking for my Christmas scrubs.

Today was one of my more productive days. I took Dad shopping so he could buy Christmas cards and a couple of presents, did grocery shopping, a couple of loads of laundry and am just finishing decorating our tree now that the men have gone to bed.

I also cooked a full meal and did some breakfast/lunch prep for the guys so I am feeling good about it all! Just hoping I didn't over do it but I am learning to pace myself better.

Working on getting my eyes open, so I can shower, dress and go to work. Full office today, finally. Being by myself is productive but very anxiety laden, I spent last week being 3 people. I hope I did everything right! Stupid Medicare!
