Not really. I had been taking walks around my apartment complex and switched it up to walking a trail through the woods close to here. The ground there is really uneven and after a few weeks, it just started hurting. Of course, I ignored the pain for like a month before I ever went to the ER. So I'm not sure if it was something that happened all at once or just going from the smooth street to the uneven ground that did it.

Well, life has resumed it's more normal brand of craziness. Court is over, and I can get on with the decorating for Christmas! My house is in it's usual Thanksgiving/Christmas decor; Whatever shelf I don't have Thanksgiving decorations for is already decorated for Christmas. Yay!

Merry Christmas Everyone

Well, It's been quite some time since I have been here. I hope everyone is doing well. I see the Christmas spirit still remains alive and well here. My outdoor lights have been hung and my home shines with my Christmas spirit for all to see. My tree will go up on Sunday the 24th, and I feel so behind schedule. I can't wait to read thru the posts and see who has decorated already. It will take me forever to catch up. In the meantime, Merry Christmas Everybody!!! I think about my MMC pals often, and I sure am happy to be back !!!!!

He said he felt better after the chicken soup. He loved it but it was only chicken broth from a box with canned carrots, canned potatoes, and canned chicken simmered in it. I threw it together in half an hour! Must have been the love in it.

So frustrating, to say the least, and definitely not right to promise you help and then not provide it when you need it.

You made me smile, thinking of your son with a Christmas tree cut into his hair! I remember seeing a few of those lightning bolt cuts some years ago.

That doesn't help the customers that need their stuff at that moment. I had a anxiety attack in my refrigerated stockroom, and punched a box of hams so hard I thought I broke my hand. I was fine. I channeled that anxiety attack energy into putting my delivery away, screaming f-bombs every other word as I was doing it. ( I was alone, if there was someone else around I would have been more appropriate.) I was mad mainly because my 2 direct supervisors have told me they would be there the second I needed help with turkeys and stuff, and they were BOTH there today.
I honestly don't know what kept me from leaving today. I hate that place.

My boys got their haircuts today, they got home a few minutes after I did, my wife let them get little designs into their hair, my oldest had a lightning bolt on both sides of his head, my youngest he had the woman cutting it put a Christmas tree with a star on the back of his head. It is cute, on both of them, hey it was the style in the early 90's, I guess it is coming back.

Have a good night all.
