Good morning friends- she is rising like a phoenix from the ashes today! I got the booster on Friday as you saw above and this vax was much harder than the other 2. I had a sore arm developing on Friday but was able to work through the day okay, and went to bed early but woke up at midnight with the worst chills, headache and my arm was throbbing. I took some tylenol and went back to bed, and did not feel great in the morning but by early afternoon, the worst of it had passed. I ended up having to cancel yoga, an art gallery opening I was going to stop at to see a friend's showing, and a dinner last night. The friend who I was going to meet for dinner had the exact same problem though, she got the vax thursday and was very sick and was the one to postpone. Another friend also got hers Thursday and all of us have had a strong reaction so if you are planning to get one, just clear your schedule to be ready for what follows. I am glad I got it, as I need the protection!
Pushing through a lot of go lives right now and so looking forward to my week off in another month. Still no firm ending date for this, the people who want to figure that out keep postponing so I think my director may just say I will be with the project until a certain date, then he is moving me off. He told the other two they can continue on to finish it up. One of the people who has been involved with this and has been a thorn in our side told us Friday it was her last day (she has another job) and that was actually good news for us; will make our final time on this effort a bit more do-able. As you can probably tell, I am ready to get off of this thing asap......
Anyone heard from Cami lately?
Goldie- I feel for you sister with all you are dealing with around your health, DH's health changes, and family expectations. I know others have said it but it's time to say no to the expecations of others for you to host them, cook, clean up after their visit, etc. I have a mantra I tell myself whenever I have something coming at me that is too much and that is "I have done too much for too many for too long." I think it is true for almost every woman, we are just expected to keep giving and doing for others no matter what. Sometimes we have a hard time saying no to family, but they can be the worst with this stuff. I would flip the conversation to say you would love to see them but they need to figure out some accomodations somewhere else and if they want a meal, then they will have to help make it. Why not go out to eat? I know you may have some limitations with some of these things based on location, but it's worth putting it out there for some alternatives to have a holiday together without the burden of everything on you? It isn't a no then, it's a how about this instead.....
I have taken my bulk shredding to Staples here but expect they are all different. I think that price is about right but with the volume, it would be expensive. Unless you just drop off a bit at a time.
NM- I read your posts and enjoy hearing about the adventures at school. I can tell how good of a move this has been for you from the last few places you have been. Never a dull moment with the kiddos. How is school going with being back to work again? I am sure your schedule is very full. Sadie definately likes you at her beck and call. But you are her world so we can understand that she misses you a lot when you are not around? How is your mom doing? The wine and women group looked like great fun.
Ill- how are things going with your continued transition to west TX? Did you say you were having some scans again?
Chevy- I think you are finding some ways to help your DH with some things he enjoys. Walking is good, cinammon rolls even more so. Change of scenery always good. I hear the Denver area is getting weather, there was a bunch of snow up north last weekend that brought way more than the usual for this time of the year. Mountains here usually start getting some snow late Sept here but we have had a lot and earlier this year too. Our mountains here in the city (Sandias) got snow last weekend which is pretty early, but have seen it before in October. I hope we have a wet winter, we are hurting for water here, it's getting serious.
Teka- how are things in north country? Any pretty foliage?
Gotta get to some to dos and planning on swimming later today. Sunday afternoon swims are my favorites.
Have a good week ladies!
