My neighbor's Dr. nixed the Mimosas. I did sneak my favorite painted rock on her door sill to surprise her when she got home from her first appt with the specialist. She said it was her favorite of all the ones I have made so a good choice

Maybe the doctor would allow some hot cocoa with whipped cream instead of a mimosa, HR. Worth a try.

You know you have a reputation as a haunter when you’re in a rehearsal for an upcoming concert and one of the people in the theater group gives you a bag with a pair of skeleton feet she found in the costume/prop storage area:p

I'm not surprised the Doctor nixed the Mimosas and I think it's really nice you left that painted rock on her door sill. So like you!! :D There are other friend/ neighbor things you might be able to do: movie/popcorn night, take her to bingo (if that's still allowed with covid hanging around), girls lunch out, girls lunch in, brief shopping trip, just a visit with coffee or tea, lemonade, ice cream soda, hot chocolate. Something like that. Anything to make her feel normal, have fun, take her outside of what's going on (I hope that makes sense). Just hanging out with you and chatting, watch a movie together, gossip about Prince Henry.

My company was bought out (again) and now all nurses and nurse assistants have to wear green scrubs because it's the new company's logo, colors, something. It's so embarrassing, not to mention expensive: replacing all our clothes.

I used to love this job and was proud. Now I need to get out but this has always been my problem: I find it hard to leave. I love the people, it's close to where I live (I love that) I see the signs but I just ignore them and keep hoping it's going to get better even when I know it won't. Anyone else like this? I know I can get hired in a snap (I get offers all the time), I'm not happy, so what is my problem?

Sounds like you don't like change. I was the same way. But a few times, change was forced on me. (Downsizing, buyouts, takeovers, etc.) That's when I realized that I'm good at what I do, and don't need to settle for people or businesses that don't recognize that. Having been "involuntarily changed" before, doing it on purpose was scary. But when you find the right place and people, it's much easier ... and on your own terms. Never been happier. (Well, never since before the age of eight.)

PG, sometimes people stay where they’re unhappy because their logic is that if they stay, they at least know what to expect, and if they go, it might be worse somewhere else. Sometimes people settle for a less-than-ideal situation because it’s convenient or, as the good Doc noted above, they don’t like making changes. I had a friend years ago who told me he relished being in a rut - he had trouble with the concept of doing something different “just ‘cause” because that meant making a change, however temporary it might be. I can’t say as he was ever an entirely happy person.

Hairazor - Sorry to hear about your neighbor. Cancer sucks big time. I like the rock thing. I think that is cool. Just hanging out sometimes does the trick.

PG - sorry to hear about the company buy out. Been there - dealt with that and it sucks - especially when you have to buy scrubs due to companies change out of your own pocket. Not having a long commute is always a plus. However, it seems you have been frustrated/unhappy for a long time. As the scholars stated above my post, people settle for things out of convenient because of that is what they are used to and change can be scary. You already know who and what you're dealing with. You are a people person and responsible and I would think you would be an asset to any company that hired you. A friend of mine did it a year ago and she has never looked back. I had to do it because of company folding and I felt less frustrated.

My neighbor just finished her first treatment (a 48 hour drip she could do at home) We are agreed as soon as she feels up to it I will make Cream Brulee and we will drink ice cold milk out of fancy glasses. Thanks for all the encouragement everyone.

I’ve got some concert performances to get through this weekend, then we can start to focus on getting props out of the crawl space to see what’s still good, what needs fixing, and what’s ready to be retired.

I hope you find ME in that crawl space ... I'm definitely ready to be retired.

Have you ever seen your pet do something so heartbreakingly cute that you just want to watch them forever? I was petting Lucy several hours ago and then we both left and came back. She is curled up in this tiny space by my computer with her paw over her eyes. Oops I ruined the moment and tried to pet her and she's annoyed. Never mind. lol

Had a busy weekend. Me and hubby (he decided on the last minute) walked the Heroes to Hero 5K Run/Walk Marathon that was on Saturday. It was my second - hubby's first and we made pretty good time. I did manage to set up some spider webs outside. While I was setting up my webs, my neighbor's son approached me and said "here this is for you guys - we don't use it".

Bottle Drink Packing materials Font Transparency

Well, after coming home from the marathon and having a few beers, my first thought was "what are you using instead of toilet paper?" :oops:. I mean, with all the tp shortages. I did catch on and just started laughing once I saw what was on the package. I thanked him because they something like a pumpkin scented candle. I had never seen Halloween toilet paper in the stores. And it's 3 ply - that is some primo ****!!!! :poop:

After that, I just felt myself smiling and did finish the webs in the front yard and on the porch.
