Happy Late Anniversary lyndalou! Congratulations, how long have you been married?

Nicole, you are a sweetie to start this thread. I agree that it is nice to talk about how our days went. I had to work an evening shift last night and so I felt like I did 2 days in one! I did all my usual housework during the day and then went to work! My day started out crappy, and then got better. Thank God for my wonderful husband who takes everything in stride. He gets a call at work from a blubbering wife and he doesn't hesitate, just stops what he is doing to console me. Then later when I am at work he jumps in and does all the taxi service, catering and wash up that I would normally do. What a guy!

Don't let love interfere with your appetite. It never does with mine.

Yesterday, I went out to the Pearl Timber Sale to check on the operation. All quiet there to wet and sloppy for hauling. Checked on a culvert that was blocked with snow and went back to the Ranger Station.

Then I parked myself in front of the computer to do a financial statement for the timber sale. Each month all timber sales that are active have to have enough money on account for prior month's hauling, what they will cut the next month and then what they have cut and but has not been removed. We also have a 10 day cut cushion to take care of any overrun. Ok, now that you are bored reading, that is what I did all yesterday afternoon.

Then about 5:00 pm I went and exercised for a half an hour. Buzzed over to the parents and had dinner and picked up my dog.

Went to the Dr with DH. He has to give up beer for two weeks..(I think I will go live in the woods or a cave during that time) Then back for blood work to see if his electrolytes are OK for a Colenostophy.(sp?) Then home to call the Dr that did his lung surgery for his 6 month check up . Then just before that he has to have a chest X-Ray.

He is making up for not having to see a Dr. for years at a time. When it rains it pours.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Dove, I hope that all of Paul's tests come back A-OK and that you can survive the next 2 weeks!

My day is becoming interesting, but it sure won't be enjoyable. My boss is without a car today and has several meetings out of the office so I get to play driver. My patience will be taxed! I have to leave in about 45 minutes to take him to his next one, about an hour away, sit and wait for it to be finished, and then drive back. I'll then have to take him back out later this afternoon. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this today!

Thanks for asking Nicole :) I stay at home during the winter, and the other three months I landscape, so I have an appreciation for stay at home moms and those that work outside the home. When I do work outside, I plan my schedule around my daughter who is 14, so that I am here when she leaves and here when she gets home.

Today I cleaned a bit, worked out, walked the dog, did some food shopping, and later making dinner. Right now I am waiting for my daughter to come home from a doctors appointment. She dislocated her knee which was extremely painful and still is. Possibly torn ligaments, so surgery might be inevitable. She is very grouchy and tired due to the pain, but we're trying to keep her spirits up. She prefers to be around my husband lately because I am being too "motherly" as she put it. She wants to do things for herself and I keep wanting to help her out, but I should let her do things on her own, thats best.

Feeling some better today,,very tired and weak. I woke up yesterday morning and ran for the bathroom. Spent all day with a bucket at my feet. Even a sip of water wouldn't stay down. This lasted about 14 hours. The doctor insisted that I intake clear liquids..ha! A teaspoon in and 2 qts. out.

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.
