    Good evening,

    Raev - welcome and post when you can!

    Heat temps are more enjoyable and easier to live with.

    Work is completely bananas. Okay, more than usual.

    Close to 5k steps and will see what I can do about getting 6k.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning all~~

    I'm finished with all of the visiting of people and back in my apartment in NYC. Today and tomorrow will be appointments and packing up some stuff to take south.

    I did not get on the scale this morning. I'll leave that for tomorrow, maybe.

    Being here is very depressing; too many good and bad memories and reminders of how much I have yet to get done. One day at a time, right?

    Hello!
    I agree - you got this Lana!
    Not much new here. Also not stepping on scale...will do that after I get rid of crutches and then start my goals again.
    Waves to all.
    Raev - welcome. Keep on keeping on. One day at a time - you also got this!

    Good evening,

    Lana sorry you have to meet some demons, but slay them and keep going.

    Long day at work too much caffeine and sugar gave me one of those rotten headaches.

    Tomorrow off but with any luck will have a productive day shopping.

    Scale is at least not going up and I am grateful

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Hey there Sara and Tracy and Lynn👋🏻 You ladies are the best 🤗😘
    Tracy I hope that you are doing well~
    Sara - enjoy your day off!

    Good afternoon,

    Went early and shopped for shoes with friend who was "kidnapped" for 4 hours. She enjoyed it and we will do it again as I found out she likes thrift stores.

    Not very hot which is very appreciated. Until I went to eat lunch today scale was on a down ward trend. We shall see tomorrow and I got a battery for my pedometer.

    Just got up from short nap, so drinking water/liquids and doing rest of my to do list.

    Lana - hey you have been good on the scale and enjoying yourself - you deserve a medal!!

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Hey Y'all~~
    I couldn't post yesterday, as the internet was frozen.
    Today I'm waking up in a decent hotel with good internet. This is my last day of driving - I'll sleep in my own bed tonight.

    Sara - I love thrift stores! It's nice that your friend made a good shopping partner 👍🏻
    Lynn - when you can, we will take you shopping too! I hope that you are feeling a bit better (healing from the crutches-abuse!)

    Good evening,

    Friday and I am brain dead and feel like mush. Will just go to bed early.

    I asked boss why there were 2 names on the cubicles and was told it was "not her project and she had nothing to do with it" in the tone of a dragon breathing fire.....

    Had to stop post -

    Young coworker called - I had a going away present for her and she was in my area. Her plans time wise got messed up compliments of her now former boss. She is the free spirit and loves hummingbirds so I got her a small necklace hummingbird pendant. Easy to pack!! She is moving the Bay Area and her new chapter.

    Also bought a faith based inspirational book for another lady at work who goes to church. She is depressed as a younger sibling died and it worries her she is next. Thought is natural in the "who is next" but a kind distraction might be appreciated.

    Didnt want to write and essay.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Saturday

    A quick hello, I have 2 more rows on slippers and then I have to sew them up which I really dont like, but I want to get them done for church tomorrow.

    Better eating on meals today which is encouraging.

    Good morning all~~

    Wow - I totally missed getting here yesterday.

    Hey Sara, on Friday you wrote "I asked boss why there were 2 names on the cubicles and was told it was "not her project and she had nothing to do with it" in the tone of a dragon breathing fire....."

    Are there 2 names on all the cubicles? Are some of the names brand new? I'm curious to hear more about this as it unfolds.....

    Most days of the week I have scrambled eggs for breakfast, made with a generous amount of butter. That's how my mother made them, and it reminds me of her.

    But I'm thinking I'll make a batch of hard-boiled eggs today, and have them for breakfast some of the times, as my normal-weight sister does.

    good evening,

    Lana!! Glad you are doing well.

    My boss was overruled by the director of our department and people are coming in on the weekend to work on the bills that have been generated by COVID vaccine administration. Sorry the last couple of weeks have just been so exhausting that complicated sentences almost hurt. What that means is that someone will have to come in part of the weekend to assist..... (no no not me) and so things are rather heated verbally.

    This is a double dose - double scoop of confusion this week as the deadline between the company I work for and Blue Cross are at a stale mate and people with certain insurance policies are facing immediate termination from the medical group because they have Blue Cross. This "happens" tomorrow and I am one of the people who answer the phones from clinics wanting an update.

    No stress from work. Nah!!!! Add the new software programs with all new codes and zero training. Phones calls are breaking records at work. I have only had one person hang up on me so far which for me is fine as I could not understand her and she "knew everything".

    My change in culinary calories is to buy decaf instant coffee and not use the coffee at work - it doesnt kill my stomach and I only use dry milk and no sugar ( I have been putting 2-3 teaspoons in at the end of the day).

    Monday is done. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning All~~

    Sara - Thank you for the details. When work is overwhelming, it helps to not look at the big picture. Just take one phone call/client at a time, and do your best to help that person. Rinse, repeat.
    I am very glad for you that you have your Wednesdays off, so that you have to do the steeplechase race only two long days in a row, and then get a break. Big hugs 🤗

    Hey Tracy 👋🏻 - How are you doing? Are you in your new work position? How is it all going?

    Lynn - How are you feeling?

    Maureen - How are you doing in Charlotte?

    Good morning, Cabana Crew,

    Easing into my new position. Was in the plant every day last week and probably will be for a while until I get the rhythm down and know which days can be done from home. Quite honestly, though, morale improves if someone sits at the front desk.

    Will keep you posted, but so far, so good!

    Good evening,

    Came home and fell asleep. Dinner is half over. Tomorrow a nice lady gives me a pedicure and I will help make dinners for people at church.

    If someone on the phone at work asks where I got my list of "x" I offer to send them a copy. I do not work for the FBI and this is company information. If someone wants to help themselves I wont stop them. This lowers the amount of "easy" calls we will get but hey why not help those who want to help themselves.

    This weeks pair of slippers is a red and a white (not stark white but not beige). Will donate the slippers to the Craft fair in Nov at Church.

    I may be better off sleeping in tomorrow. Need to recharge the batteries.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning ☀️

    Tracy - do I infer correctly that it is you and your smiling face that is at the desk improving morale??
    Is your work a long drive from your home?

    Sara - get your rest and enjoy your pedicure. You are a very good soul for helping with the dinners at the church.
    - - -
    I hope for myself to get some good news today. The struggle continues for me and my accountant to get through on the phone to the IRS to find out what the heck has gone wrong with my receiving my tax return refund (from a return filed last October). It is a sizable amount, and I need it!

    The IRS is such a wreck, I don't know how they exist. Two months ago, we were on the phone with 3 different agents, for 1 hr 40 minutes, with the end result of "call back in 30 days".
    It's a forehead slapper.

    Good morning!
    Lana - IRS....yuck. that is so frustrating- it is your money and they can just put you off for 30 days? Imagine if the rest of us would do that at our jobs!
    Sara - I am sorry our work is so stressful. That is not fun. Keep yourself in balance. Stress is bad and to be honest...work is not worth it :wink:
    Tracey- glad the job is going well! That is exciting!
    My update- I am officially walking, well gimping along! Crutches and brace were thrown to the side on Monday afternoon. My calves and back hurt from the weight shift and limping and bad posture from this whole thing! But slowly but surely I will increase strength and get back to a normal gait. Can only bend 90 degrees. Need to increase that and Dr. has some good goals for me to do that :neutral: Not liking PT, but I know it is good for me.
    Will step on scale again. I took it away during this entire thing. Had enough stress.
    Waves to all! Hope your Wednesday is a great one!
    ~Lynn
  • LanaCabana537LanaCabana537 Member Posts: 2,945 Member Member Posts: 2,945 Member

    Hi Lynn~~

    So glad to hear that you are officially walking. The brace went at the same time as the crutches? Wow~

    I bet you are a hurting mess, exactly as you said. Sorry PT is not a happy time. Hopefully that will change. This week may be rough, but maybe by the weekend and certainly next week you will be feeling a bit better/stronger/in less discomfort.

    Leave the scale in the closet for now. As you said - you have enough stress.

    Do you like fresh fruit? It's summertime and the cherries and peaches and such are pretty yummy now......you know, to put on your ice cream! 🤣😂🤣
    Big hugs 🤗
