PonPeg - I have at least 2 'hard liq' drinks every single day. I smoke still too. I am with the others, gotta live my life in my lifestyle, n drinking n smoking n gambling are all a part of 'putting' a smile on my face. I will celebrate my 6th year cancerversary this April. I have problems but just annoying things. Yes, some of them drive me to drink, LOL, but for most part I am doing OK. Glad to have you on board….ooops, dumped ya into da pewl….shoot, well let's jes relax and have tenders take care of us.
Cami - u gonna share ur cook? MMJ, in diff recipes - candy, smoke, tincture, RSO, cookies, chocolate etc, all make you sleep and some take good care of your pain. I highly recommend it.
Dara - keep us posted. I have never heard that teef had ligaments either. However, my teeth are more sensitive now since wearing the mouth guards. Am so sorry u are having such terrible aches and pains…sending big HUGZ and lots of prayers your way.
Lowee - ur appetite coming back? Woohoo, hope this is true. In answer to your other question….I paid into SS all the years I worked. I am unable to work now, so I want what I'm due from our gov. Have 3 years (a ltl less) til I HAVE TO file for plain ol' social security, so wanted to get a little more benefit. Plus, I really cannot work anymore.
Sandy - You are so right on about alcohol and pos hormone cancer. I'm 3P, so as some say….'what's going to do, give me cancer…' there now but will say I am thrilled to still be breathing…yeah!
Seems to me that there is another new gal on board…is it NEM? Sorry if I didn't get it right but welcome….come join us in the pewl.
OK…dh be home soon…Made chicken tortilla soup in the crockpot. It is ready now, so I expect him anytime.

I hope you are all having a good Saturday. I slept several hours today since I had a rough night last night. But enough about me, for now anyway !!
Cam, sorry to hear that you are having pain. Feel free to wine away about it, gosh, you hardly complain at all. Regarding Willie Nelson, I have a friend who frequently partakes in schmoking de weed and I presented your question to her and here is her feedback: the Willy helps tremendously with most pain. The only pain that it does not help, is headache pain. She is not sure if it takes away the pain or just makes her not care so much about the pain. She gives Willy two thumbs up. I'm so sorry you are missing Katie cat so much, I feel your pain as the loss of a pet is very difficult to get over, especially in the early days of the loss. Lots of hugs coming your way. I do play piano and also played the flute but it has been many years since I've really applied myself and practiced. I will try to remember to post one of my old YouTube videos of me dabbling with my music. I hope Joey's headache is gone, I truly sympathize. He is young for headaches, I hope he doesn't get them often??
Mema! Sorry you have a cold, hope it goes away fast. Otherwise you sound really good. Your husband's truck got drunk, oops LOL. I am with you on thinking that it is quality over quantity of life, well for the most part. As NM said, it does not make sense to go through life miserable and without what makes us happy just for the off chance that we will live longer. You keep on smoking and drinking girl, I lift my glass to your now. Cheers!
Jazzy, Great photo of the sunrise. I enjoy tagging along with you and your adventures and living vicariously through you. You know how to work hard and you know how to play hard and I truly admire you for that. Keep up the great work. Hope you are enjoying every minute of your weekend retreat!
Chi, you are funny, my prayers are with you. I also envy you and wish that I had a box of thin mints and also a box of those peanut butter patties, yummy! I guess one benefit of not working right now is not being tempted by Girl Scout cookies as I a known addict.
Lori, you cracked me up in stating that your farts do not stink. That is exactly what I would've guessed since you are such a prim and proper AND a beautiful classy woman. I am happy to hear that you are eating better and no longer losing weight. Sending lots of love and prayers your way. Keep your chin up girl, love you so much.
NM, i'm glad you and Sadie got to sleep in. Sorry about the heartburn hope you learned your lesson about drinking orange juice late at night (I know you did)! But really glad you are feeling better. I hate that you have to do paperwork during the weekend. You deserve to have the entire weekends to yourself. You need more Kim time and I hate that you don't get enough. Hope you enjoyed your puttering today. And yes, a ligament behind my teeth was also surprising news to me. It is feeling somewhat better today but I have yet another new issue in my mouth. It's just crazy and almost unbelievable. I pray that we both get a break soon.
Hi Peggy, hope you are enjoying some Saturday night wine. It's good for you, don't listen to what anyone else says. I am an expert on the subject ha ha. Hope your weekend is going well.
HSant, woo hoo , Glad to hear that your dad is doing well. I'm sure he enjoyed his haircut and time outdoors. I also do not remember you talking about working for MGM, sounds very impressive. Do you have any other good stories for us regarding your employment there? Sending hugs and prayers your way as well. Keep on keeping on, it's the only way.
NEM, welcome, stop back and knock down some drinks with us. We are a fun bunch and just love having new loungettes join us!
Missing some girls, also thinking of our Genny and Emma, hoping all is well for both girls! xo
Well I am going to hit submit before I lose this post to the gremlins. By the way, Camille I am sorry it happened to you this week. It sucks so much doesn't it? Have a good night ladies and remember titties up, if you got em! Gonna try to finish up talking a about mese and mes chit next, k? (I am typing between commercials, watching a Shark Tank marathon, love that show...many tears at the end of each show.

Made some pan-seared coho salmon using America’s Test Kitchen’s no-fat-added recipe (they used Atlantic, which I usually don’t keep on hand). So tonight’s DODT was a 2011 Williams-Selyem “Eastside Road Neighbors” Russian River Pinot Noir, which I started Coravin-ing tonight. Yummy! It’s the third bottle of red currently on my sideboard which I’ve treated with argon gas so I can revisit whenever I want, even if even an ounce. The 2010 Bordeaux Superieur I first tried it on in Nov. 2015, and which I hadn’t tried since Jan. 2016 because it seemed too tannic and “hot” (heavy in alcohol), but tonight the tannins seem to be softening (especially after being “breathed” in the glass) and the fruit is coming through.
I love this contraption—I can try lots of different wines without paying a restaurant insane by-the-glass prices, not be afraid to open an expensive bottle and then have to finish it so as not to waste it, and I can drink only as little as my dinner requires. The argon capsules aren’t much more expensive than Whip-Its (um, don’t ask me how I know that) and I can keep several bottles opened yet sealed at once.

Sandy that contraption does sound good for a wine drinker. An if i had the GS cookies this afternoon, I wouldn't have them now, for sure.
SusyQ stop getting that cold, hear me? Thank u and Dara about the Willie an it comes in so many kinds, which I think is great. I do smoke, but for some reason smoking that doesn't agree with me, OK gotsta check it out. All I have is RA and Fibro and together it aggrevates me, and I'm getting older so.......
Dara u have to tell us what's going on. Humph (I really don't say that word, just the sound)
NM OJ??? Really. I don't even drink it in the morning an I take those stupid pills every day Of course u had to sit up, I hope u'r having a good sleep tonite. And too I'm sorry, u r always working--I wish u didn't have to.

Pegg Jazzy is a big pic. person an we all enjoy her adventures.
I think Lori has company this weekend.
Joey gave me a mini concert tonite. And I knew and recognized the songs. But he did say he had trouble with the trill (? I think that was the word, u gals know about this stuff) He still enjoys it and now I do too.
OK I'll try to sleep now,took my meds, hope they work.

Peggy--GERD is a PIA, that's for sure.And OJ is good, just not after noon time for me!
Mema--so funny how DH's truck got drunk!
Cho--ooh, thin mints.I can eat those by the boxful!
Dara--yup, re-learned the lesson about drinking OJ after noon time.I even took some ranitadine to prevent the burn, but it didn't work very well.The only thing that really does help is sitting up, hence the sleeping in the recliner.But that's ok.Won't do it again for some time to come!
Chi--that sounds like quite the contraption, and I'm glad I gives you opportunities for fun with wines!
Cammy--yes, OJ.And I love drinking OJ.Just have to control it.

Oh my BFF from 3rd grade finally got on FB and has a computer, we di loose touch for about 3 yrs. with me moving an her moving--(a mess) So she asked me if I was on messenger??? again and I'm not--Joey said it has to o with the phone and I sai I'll give her my email--Ugh she never had a computer and she knows messenger??? WTF, she's as stupid as me and she knows it. We went thru all of school together and then found out our dads worked together, we had a lot of fun times and I married her husbands best friend and we both got divorced but they moved her to FL and I hated him for that well I forgave him when he killed himself, but by then her mom moved there and her cousin and she was getting married again. Then she moved to some backwoods county in Ark. or somewhere, Anyway we always talked until we both moved. But growing up we did everything together we both liked the same boy, and we decide I could have him, and I did, then again we like the same boy so it was her turn an she took it. Anyway that was also my nite yesterday.
The kids have school off tomorrow and Leslie starts her regular schedule for her job. Done training- so she'll work 4 days a week about 20 hrs. So we'll see.
Sunday another whole week went by and Feb. is almost over too.
BTW SusyQ I'm surprised it's taking long for SSD But I think u'll get back pay when u start.
OK see ya all latah.

Sandy, cracking up at a wino with a credit card. Our g'daug was selling GS cookies, we just sent in a donation. Last time we bought some, 4 boxes I think, they lasted 2 years!
Cami, the MMJ can help with pain, but it relaxes you too. And they also have topical creams you can rub on you that help with pain. We send my MIL some, she uses it on her shoulders for the RA, and she says it helps her a lot. Hers is hemp, which is not illegal. Glad to hear Joey is still playing. Violin? I foygot. How nice to reconnect with your old friend. Good luck to your DD on with the new job.
NM, I have some essential oils, and a mister for them. Just need to remember to use it!
Jazzy, what a beautiful sunrise! Nice of you to pop in and share! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I think you are spa-ing it, but at home too? I like to pronounce your city like albe-quirkey!
LDB, I really have not had an appetite issue for quite some time, at least 6 months, but the weight was just falling off. I'm maintaining for now, thank goodness, and not losing anymore. YES, you are entitled to your SS, which is why I applied. Might not live to retirement age, so taking what I can now. I was asking why you didn't take it sooner?
Company still here, leaving this morning. Here is a pic of me and Bentley, not very good, but good enough. Hoping Bella and Emma are doing ok.

Good afternoon friends- back from my second yoga retreat this year and it was fabulous! This one was local, so I came home to my own sweet little bed at night and spent time there during the yoga, for meals, some free time, etc. This center is a place I used to do retreats at years ago but then some change of hands happened and it was not available to us. But now it is back and she will do another one again next year. Love my yoga community.
Back home to get laundry done. I have a presentation I am doing this week at a local prof org I have to finish, a short story to type up for my class on Tuesday and my tax work to get to.
Will go back and catch up on your posts and write more to each of you later. Wishing you a good Sunday and glad you liked the pic!

Good Morning, Loungettes!Had to do a quick scheduling session this ayem, forgot to do it yesterday.Fortunately I've got a system so it didn't take very long.Assuming I didn't miss anything crucial. If I did, it'll get picked up quickly enough.Morning meeting this ayem, family meeting this peeyem,long morning meeting tomorrow ayem, going to be a big meeting week this week.Sigh.But there is a Wine Tasting this weekend to look forward to.And lots of snow melted off this weekend, although there is still quite a bit, it is a lot easier to see over the snowbanks now.
Cammy--ah, the joy of sticky keys! Makes us be creative in our writing when we have to avoid certain letters.So nice to be able to reconnect to your 3rd grade BFF!I bet you have lots to talk about. Sadie and I did lots of relaxing yesterday, in fact, we are doing way too much, nothing getting done around the house!
Goldie--I bought myself a set of essential oils and a diffuser this weekend.Should come around the end of the week or early next week (I chose the cheapest, hence longest shipping method!) that I'm looking forward to playing with. Ah, you and Bentley are both so Wonderful looking!
Jazzy--Ah, the best of both worlds, a Yoga retreat AND your own bed!Taxes, oh, yeah, suppose I need to think of that, too.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the Birthday wishes, cake, drink and party!!

Being totally bad - had Domino's pizza last night and the leftovers tonight. Along with a big glass of Lambrusco. No pepperoni on it. Decided that the tummy would rebel.
Dara, I decided long ago to live as I choose. I did quit smoking (which I still miss after 18 years) but that was a matter of $$$.

Hi friends- little late in the day but wanted to pop in and say hi! Been busy catching up on things and getting some to-dos done for the week after the yoga retreat finished up yesterday. Really nice weekend of yoga, yogi fellowship, some time spent in the area down by the river, etc. I was not crazy about the food, and others felt the same so we gave her some good feedback on that. She wants to do something different next time for meals.
Some of you were talking about drinking and bc. Can't remember if I shared my MOs input on this here before (talked about it somewhere on the BCO threads), but the first MO I saw in 2013 during treatment in AZ told me to keep to 2-3 drinks per week max. I was pretty religious about that for a few years, allowed myself more when on trips, etc. I asked my current MO who sees me for my follow ups and he said he does not think it matters that much. We are more focused on me loosing weight which is more of an estrogen concern. I usually drink around social events or on get aways, there are times I don't drink anything for weeks. I am on enough medication that drinking is not the best for me anyways. I will always enjoy a glass of fine wine!
Dara- I am sorry the headaches persist. We talked about some yoga poses for migraines and other types of headaches this weekend. Not sure if you do yoga or are interested, but can send some links on this if you like?
ChiSandy- I am curious how many thin mints are in that box. You are such an amazing food writer. I heard there were people at the beach in Chicago today on the news?
Cami- where is this pain you are experiencing? In your tummy with the C-diff or somewhere else? I am sorry you are not feeling well. You need some mary jane.....
Goldie- that is a lovely photo of you. I hope you are doing okay with all the things you are going through with the meds and your father's passing. I would love to hear some more stories about your dad that are special to you if you want to share?
Were you the one who asked me about my bike? I did pick it up last week and got a ride in before I went off the retreat. It was raining yesterday, cold and windy today but may get out again tomorrow. I LOVE the new bike!
Pontiac- I am SO craving some pizza! I am with you that it is important to enjoy life. Quitting smoking was a huge thing to do and proud of you girlfriend.
NM- I got in to aromatherapy years ago. Been fan of the essential oils although I don't use them as much in the diffuser as I used to. Lavender and tea tree are two of my favs and useful for so many things. I used lavender on my forehead for persistent headaches. Can't wait to hear more when your goodies arrive! I hope you are having a good "birthday season" friend and that your week is going okay to start.
Mema- chicken tortilla soup. Was it good? Recipe you use on the internet?
Hsant- I saw a post awhile back about your dad having a pressure sore. Glad you got on top of that, and we had some challenges with our mom at one point around that. How is he doing? How are you doing?
I think I am missing a few people but that is it for now. Wishing you all a good evening! I am off to get some blood work done tomorrow morning in preparation to see my endocrinologist next week!

The Polar Plunge was this weekend, ending this morning—the water was still in the mid-30s, but the air temp. was about 60 until the wind turned and the fog rolled in after about 2 pm. We stayed in the low 50s here by the lake. Inland, it hit 70. Some showers are expected in about an hour or two, ending in the morning, with a high of 65—presumably no “lake effect.” Wednesday’s high is forecast at 73. But Saturday will be in the 30s with snow showers, Sunday cold & dry (maybe 38), going back up to the low 40s Monday.
Had a Jovino ’13 Oregon Pinot Noir with my cheeseburger tonight. (Subbed out a salad for the fries). Bob had a short office day down near Midway, so I hung around the restaurant till he got there.

Happy Birthday Kim, sorry I am late! My bad. I hope you had a great day and indulged in something yummy to dwink! I will try to catch up when I am feeling better. I see my dentist tomorrow (well today, it's 3 aye em). I am in so much pain, I initially thought I had a salivary stone in my mouth again but now fear it is a horrible abscess in my gums. I just can't get an FN break! Percocet nor willie is doing much for my pain...I am actually skeered to smoke de willy. I've been taking 600 mg of ibuprofen which gives some relief but I am 'ahurting here. ~scream~ WELL, enough whining! Let's dwink! Yep, we need to sailabrate, it's NM''s birthday week, I think a birthday should be celebrated for the entire month but a minimum of one week since de partay is just starting! Who's in?

Good Morning, Loungettes!Thank you for all the Birthday wishes!What a partay!I am so blessed to have such caring friends.I had a lovely day at work, with Sadie riding along.

And you areso clever to bake cake letters to spell my name!!!Love the cupcake dot for the "I".Ooh, M&Ms!Love M&Ms!And look at all the little bite size yummies!And all set up by the pool.You and the Tenders did a great job!Eye Candy, too!Didn't celebrate last weekend, going to celebrate this coming weekend.Going to take myself to Olive Garden, my fav restaurant for lunch before the wine tasting, got a coupon for a free dessert for my birthday to cash in.
Jazzy--Porp puppy, can't steal my cake cuz of the fire!That's ok, I'll put the fire out and share.
Thanks, Hsant, and I did have a nice day.
Peggy--thanks!Ah, pizza, one of the essential food groups!
Jazzy--I've been playing around with aromatherapy for some time, looking to get more into herbology in general and essential oils of good quality are required for internal or topical use, so that was my b-day present for myself. For aromatherapy I really like Bergamot, Lavender, Jasmine, Cedar, Fir and Rose.I love playing with combinations of scents, too.And I have Eucalyptus and Camphor.I'm curious to see how different the good quality oils will compare with the moderately priced ones I've been using.So far at work the week is off to a decent start.We shall see how it goes.
THANK YOU, JAZZY!!!!!Great B-day present!
Chi--I don't often think about fine wine with cheeseburgers, but what a great combo!
Dara--I like "late" b-day wishes, they extend the B-day celebration season!I had a nice double limonchello with my hamburger stroganoff dinner.Scary when I can make a "gourmet" dish without a recipe!So sorry about your pain, the ibuprofen giving some relief hints at inflammation as the cause, I do hope the dentist is able to find and fix the cause ASAP.Having an abscess is not good, but once it's drained the pain goes away, almost like magic.
