I have to leave for work in a few min, another day of getting the store ready for our opening day on Friday.
I know what you mean! By the time I get home in the evening - I'd need to be here for hours to catch up on everyone's posts! Hahahaha! Good luck with the store opening on Friday!

So, I was supposed to go out looking for store stock today, but instead I am staying home to monitor the basement and Shaggy's yard. There is something I need to find in the attic - I guess today is as good of a day to look for it as any. I was really hoping for a sunny day for my search, but I don't want to put it off any longer.

Have a MERRY day!
Oh dear! I hope it stays dry - and you are safe!

You sure do have a knack of making me laugh, Made! Can you come to work with me every day? That way I'll be sure to have a smile on my face!

That means surgery on April 22nd.

The surgeon said the MRI showed a torn meniscus, some floaters and some arthritis, nice... He said he'll go in there and clean it out while he's there; roto-roter??? I'm not even 50 yet and it's already starting....lol

So, one good thing that I can remember while I'm home that week, I can be here all day.....
Will be thinking about you! You don't have to wait long for a surgery date.

Well...I didn't quite get through everyone's posts for today! WOW! I wish I had more time during the day to be here!

The day went much better today!

I told you that I ended up crying at work yesterday - but I didn't tell you that in the middle of having my melt-down...my boss walked into my office! Well...I could not just turn the tears off at that point - so he stood there and listened to me crying and saying how I am overwhelmed...boo-hoo-hoo...and how I feel like I'm failing...waaa-waaa-waaaa.

Then...all he could say was "But...you have a really pretty Spring dress on today"!

I couldn't laugh about it then...but I have laughed since! I don't think my boss quite knows what to do when I cry! Hahahaha!

Well...its been lovely catching up with you today! Nighty-night and have sweet dreams of Christmas!!!

ChristmasHeart, the story about your boss is funny. I'm glad you can laugh about it now and that today was a better day. Have a wonderful night!
