    Good morning all~~

    Missy - good to see you! How many rooms are you painting? In the past I've been shameless about not washing the walls before painting. Is your paint color choice a light neutral, or have you gotten a color-color!?
    Hopefully the pups will not help you with this project 🤣

    Sara - your rice-peppers-onions-orange chicken sounds yummy! Indeed you did very well on your steps yesterday. I hope that you have a rejuvenating day today.

    The weather is still rainy here, but I will get out and run some errands and get some steps in. Today's plan is to sort and shred a stack of old medical/disability paperwork. Very exciting!

    Waves to everyone who stops by today~~

    I’m being very ambitious and going to do the entire interior- bedrooms, hallways, kitchen, living room and basement. I got the Valspar, silver dusk in satin. Going to look great when done. Now just gotta find time to do it.

    Good morning just,

    Happy Mother's day for those who have children or mothers still living.

    I am looking to see about getting a new dog as I have one more car payment. Then to see if I can not work 10 hours a day. Gears are shifting slowly.

    Rest is on tap today. Boss is off tomorrow so I also get a vacation.

    Wishing all a good day. Stay safe and sane out there,

    Awe what kind of dog do you think you may get?

    Good evening,

    I have a feeling word of mouth will be my best option for a new dog, but we shall see. Cannot afford to buy one and I intend to spend $$ on food/pet insurance so I'd rather not start out in "dog debt". Small dog 15 pounds or less in case I have to pick up dog.

    Two coworkers are going home to work after tomorrow. One is driving me bananas with endless repeat questions so I can ignore the messaging when they are at home.

    Cold wind from south and some big clouds will give our mountains to the east some rain. Dont care where as long as we get some.

    Laundry load needed and will call it an early night. Food choices are moving in a better direction ....

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

    Almost forgot to stop by the Cabana Club!

    Busy day; headache.

    Soup for lunch, and maybe soup for dinner.

    Sara, the reason I have shut up about a dog comes down to many concerns, and money is the top one. My bestie suggested doing volunteer dog walking at the shelter, and that might be something for me. I'm a little fearful though because our shelter has mostly pitties, and I'm a bit afraid of them..... what to do....

    Good evening,

    Trying to adopt more WW ideas as it was what worked. Bought premade salads (checked sodium content and if too hot spicy).

    Lana- I hear you about the money part with dogs, which is why I havent run out and gotten one on a whim.

    I am now looking for a coat rack to hang all the knitting project bags I have on the floor trying to start potential dog "proofing". I figure I will find them as I go so no hurry.

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

    Good evening,

    Slept most of today but still have 3k of steps.

    Psychiatrist wants me to contact HR to see if I can use FMLA so that I do not have a 10 hour day as it is just too exhausting.

    Enjoying my first salad of many. Weight is ugly.

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

    'morning all~~

    Sara - Did your psychiatrist write a letter on your behalf I hope? I'm hoping that you get the relief you seek. Big hugs 😘

    Yesterday's errands netted me 4.75 miles of walking, or 10K+ steps. I am not accustomed to that, so things are hurting today. I must do the laundry today, which is a workout in itself, just getting to and from the laundromat. I do not miss living this way and cannot wait 'til NYC is completely in my rearview mirror - maybe late fall of this year?

    Good evening,

    Did not need a letter as the manager does not agree with the 4/10 schedule and starting Monday I am working 5 days a week. I get an hour more time in the morning and an hour after work so that I can stop living in sleep mode. Also makes getting a dog a little easier - dog walks and time between dog walks.

    So things are improving on that front.

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

    Happy Saturday all~~

    I am going to take myself to a museum today--always good for clocking some steps.
    What are your plans?

    Edit to add: 🧀 SARA! There is a grilled cheese festival this weekend in Sacaramento! OMG!

    Good afternoon,

    Lana - that is a ridiculous link - but I had Grilled Cheese and ham on Thursday at work...... Stockton a nearby city just had an asparagus festival and I would consider a Grilled Cheese and asparagus sandwich....

    Dont worry my hairdresser's daughter told me the Korean Fried Chicken place just opened and it was between the hairdresser and Target. Got the Garlic/Honey option. Have enough to make rice and have 2 more meals.

    Got some good steps in at Target looking for an MP3 player - got a cd player instead (items are not in stock making wall look bare.....) as I get Tuesday off phone and refuse to not have music.

    Hotter weather upper 80-low 90 this week - no rain - so time to go through closet and rearrange.

    Hope you get your steps in today Lana.

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

    Oh boy! It's Sunday, and that means I get to go home tomorrow. There's no place like home.

    Sara, I did get my steps in yesterday, and I'm hurting because of it. Today will be low key, getting ready to leave.

    I do love asparagus !

    I think there’s a problem with my app - I’ve only just been able to load the community pages? It hasn’t worked for ages 😢 I hope everyone is well, apologies if my posts get more sporadic I’m trying to figure it out

    Good evening,

    Shorter work day is a wonderful improvement. Came home took a nap and now I am eating dinner. Feel more human.

    Lana how does your place in NYC feel with less things in it?

    Weather is stupid warm here and may hit 100 on Wednesday. I just rolled my eyes.

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

    Good evening!

    Hope all is well. It was a pretty steady Monday. I kept saying today that I will take dogs for walk. Well I did and swarming bees in the backyard assisted with that decision. Huskies each got 22 ish minutes bichon only 11 ish minutes. They could have gone for more but it was later as I had to run errands after work and wanted to make sure all dogs got a chance. Home and walked them all in backyard for one last time just before thunderstorms came rolling in. Going to do the same tomorrow but maybe double the dogs up. We will see. Everyone have a great night and hope everyone has a great week if I don’t check in daily as the week sometimes or oftentimes flies right on by.

    Missy
