So funny about your boss' reaction!

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!!!

Last year, the town that borders us got hit by one that damaged quite a few houses and knocked over a lot of fences and things like that, but thankfully no one was killed. It uprooted huge old trees and it looked strange just seeing them, roots and all, laying around. We took the kids out to see it after it happened and they were fascinated. But, it reinforced to them why we get in the shelter when those sirens go off!
Scary stuff.

We spent most of the day in Chico. Normally when we go over, we try to do appointments, shopping, and anything else we can do. I have to have some dental work done, but with radiation, that is normally a given. I went to the doctor and she prescribed a muscle relaxant. We just can't seem to find the right prescription for the pain. Oh, well, we shall see. We went to Best Buy to see why my phone worked once with Blue Tooth and then no more. The clerk finally decided that somehow the settings just needed to be redone. Works like a charm now. It is probably the best BT "sound" I have ever had in a phone, so clear that it is unbelievable! Time for a glass of wine to toast with Mo and Snowflake. Were you toasting too, HomemakinGirl?
