    Hi all! Sorry it's been awhile so i am enjoying catching up on here. I'm in Northwest NJ so we got pounded last week twice with snow. This week it's just been 10-29 degrees so nothing has melted. Today got up to 34 so we've had stuff melting but we also have rain.
    @kaliswalker -lol I'm not from Canada but those would be my jars too!

    @Tabatha_Cain -aw good call to stay home from church. Our church is midway up a major road. The road isn't plowed well and the parking lot is even worse. If it's iffy, we stay home. And i am glad your office was closed. If it's a sheet of ice, there probably won't be a lot of customers. Lots of places around here are known for stating "opening at 11 due to ice"
    @Dianedoessmiles1 -how are the roads there? How much snow did you guys get last week?

    Another nice day here, it started to thaw so we worked on the clearing off the patio. It is so nice to be able to walk out the front door and not have to crawl over the snow bank. And now the UPS guy can get to the door.
    @tabatha_Cain the only time our cats get in on the bed is when I take a nap and let them up. We have always had the rule that pets don't belong in the bedroom, but I enjoy their company once in awhile. Kenny wants to cuddle up, and Shorey wants his place at the foot of the bed.

    Good Morning Airport Friends:

    I hope you are all doing well this morning. Today is Thursday and I am hoping that it will be a good day. I did get a membership last night right before closing. So I am hoping that I will be able to get the last 6 memberships in the next couple of days. I am out of the office on Monday the 29th due to having the Bariatric Doctor appointment. It is our 2 month check in and readjusting things that have not worked and discussing adding exercise. I have already been exercising, but Joe is listening to the doctor and not exercising to make sure he got the food down. Since I have been exercising for years I could not not exercise. I have to have that or I get depressed.

    @bookieNJ - So sorry you got a massive snow dump. We have people in our life group that are in the Buffalo area and they got 70 inches of snow. How much did you get? We started yesterday with the rain as well. It is melting a lot. Yeah we really thought we would just have a delayed start as well, but our boss messaged that we were closed for the day.
    @Dianedoessmiles1 - We do have the kitties scratching at the door. We just have to ignore it and give extra cuddles during the day when we are home.
    @imustloseit1 - It is always good that the UPS man can get to the door. We just sleep so much better without the animals. Although once in a while I do love my cuddles from my cats.

    Well I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday.

    Another good day here even if this as about the 3rd day of fog, cloudy, and absolutely no sun shine. I do miss that. Got a call this morning from son 2 asking how we were feeling and beings we are both okay, he said they were coming this weekend to install the new flooring. Him and his wife do it as a team job, and we just have to stay out off there way. That shouldn't be to hard, but I dearly love my DIL and will miss our talks as she will be doing all the cutting and son does all the laying. Just have to do the meals, and that shouldn't be to hard, except DIL doesn't eat pork, just can't stand it, She says it stinks,, so I always have chicken for her, maybe Meat Loaf, of Tator Tot casserole, those always goes over really well. Naybe ever Chili and Grilled cheese sandwichs. WE will have to see what I come up with. Have a great evening and that a little ME TIME. Linda

    @Tabatha_Cain, WOOHOO Tabatha on the booking! YEAH!! You are doing so well!! With the cats, they'll adjust. LOL it's hard to get them into a different routine, but once they adjust they'll be fine.
    @Kurtize, In the 50s is just way to warm for me this time of year!! i do not mind fog though. Today we woke up with DIAMONDS ALL AROUND US!! Yup! Freezing rain last night, sun this AM GORGEOUS!
    @Imustloseit1, Hey, can we ALL come over for food? YUMMY!! How terrific it is you and your DIL are close!! That's the way it should be, but sadly it's not always. ENJOY the new floor!! That sounds very exciting!! Hopefully, at night you can all enjoy each other unless they're traveling back and forth or staying some place else.

    Good Morning Airport Friends:

    I hope you are all doing well this morning. Today is Friday and I am looking forward to this weekend and being able to relax. Yesterday at work they started a call session tracker. So I have to log all the calls I make offering people memberships. I have to check off if I dialed a number, then another check if they answered, a check if I got a membership, a check if they said ok to an auto quote, and an explanation as to why they declined the auto quote. So that is going to take a lot of my day. I was only able to get about 34 calls in yesterday because it takes so long to fill out that piece of paper. Then at the end of the day I have to email it to my boss. I get both sides of it. It will protect me if I don't meet my goals, showing the effort I put into it, so I get it. Change is just upsetting for me. I will get used to it. I am sure.

    @imustloseit1 - Those foods all sound amazing. I am partial to the chili. I love venison chili and I make it a decent amount. I think I made it in December last and I am thinking of making it again this month. Probably this weekend. That is awesome that you are getting new flooring. Even more awesome that your son and his wife are installers for it. Where are you putting the new flooring? I need my living room, porch, and kitchen redone. It is going to cost a lot. I am thinking of doing it myself.
    @Dianedoessmiles1 - Yes I am sure they will be. Although the kitties are not liking the change process right now. We have one that will wait by our bedroom door so that as we open it she darts in and then hides under the bed so we cannot get her out. So we always have to slowly open the bedroom door and rush inside or rush out of the bedroom by squeezing our body between the door and the door frame to keep her out.

    Well I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.

    @Tabatha_Cain , My Mom always did our flooring. Maybe that was a thing back at that time? Maybe not, I am not sure. But, she did am AMAZING JOB!! She didn't make any errors that I saw and LOLOLOL I am such a BRAT I DID LOOK!! Not to fault her though, but because the woman was simply AMAZING!! ITs easy to see where I get my "I'll TRY THAT" attitude!! My Mom was this way, and of course I learned from her, and no doubt genetics play into that also. HAVE FUN with it!! Ask questions over and over from those who have done such. ITs from my Mom also I learned to stay UP with the trends I like and not to be pressured by those I DO NOT! ENJOY the weekend!

    Good Morning Airport Friends:

    I hope you are all doing well this morning. Today is Saturday and Joe woke me up early. I am sure I will have to take a nap later. I can already feel it starting to creep in that I might need one soon since we have been up since 3 this morning. Yesterday at work went well. I made 38 calls and only 10 people answered. No one wanted a free associate membership though as they had no one in the household to give it to for free. So that makes it rough. I am trying though. I have 4 memberships right now and I am logging all my calls so they cannot say it is from lack of trying. It is just people are not answering their phones. So that makes it rough. Everyone sends me to voicemail. But atleast I have the log they gave me to use to show my effort.

    @Dianedoessmiles1 - That is cool. I know my mom did a lot also, but she was raised with 4 brothers, so she just tagged along and learned stuff with them. If she did not know one of her brothers did and they would come over and help her. Well my uncles are a lot older now and not in the shape they used to be for helping. My husband is pretty good at some stuff. We are big on if we don't know we will watch a video on how to do it though. He fixed the bedroom door, and yesterday my husband fixed the vanity medicine cabinet in the bathroom. It looks better than it did before. He is so proud of himself, and I am too.

    Well I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday.

    Good afternoon, everyone! It is a mostly cloudy day here today. My daughter says hello to all. She's working at her part time job today. Both budgie birds are doing well and say cheep, cheep! I went for a short run earlier this morning and I really enjoyed it. I went for a walk after lunch and I feel great! I'll be doing some dancing later on. Have a great day, everyone! Take care and stay safe.

    @Tabatha_Cain, I am sure thanks to SCAMMERS many no longer answer their phones. I know I DO NOT!! I did answer one today (WHY?? WHY!!???? LOL) it was a 207 (Maine is one area code one of the only 12 states that do in the US) and a Saturday. It wasnt a scam though I DID have fun. There's a man who had this number before 2012 and he STILL USES IT!! He's NOT A NICE PERSON!! He skips out on rents and bills. I've gotten calls from the Sheriff Department threatening me (LOL no matter how much I told them I AM NOT HIM OR HIS WIFE they thought I was lying for a little bit, until I told them to please put my number into the database, BINGO! It came up to ME!) so now I say and the person today I told them "if he's trying to rent a place from you DO NOT DO IT!" he thanked and thanked me! LOLOL hey the guy should use a different number. I did giggle. I'm not at all surpised many do not answer. I am glad you get to track the amount of calls you make etc. GREAT JOB Joe in fixing the door!! It's amazing the things we can do by watching and understanding a video!! I have fixed up furniture after it looks AMAZING! Oh and COOKING!! I hated to cook (I am not wild about it still, but I love the stuff I cook!) now when I eat out I am at times so disappointed because LOLOL Mine tastes better! Hope you enjoyed the day!
    @Cormierannie, Glad you got so much done!! NO DOUBT your team LOVES the exercise you do and the WOOHOO attitude you have!
    @Kurtize, Aww we also hope you had a most lovely day Joyce!! I love being at peace with myself (98% of the time) it just feels good Hope helps us to move forward! WOOHOO!!!

    Good Morning Airport Friends:

    I hope you are doing well this morning. Today is Sunday and it is Church from home day. Next week we will be going up to church. We may actually go stay with Joe's parents. Not sure yet. Depends on if they are sick, or if I can get my son to come watch the dogs that weekend. Probably not, I may have to look at kenneling them. That might be something we should think about doing. It might actually be a good idea. Then I would be able to guarantee that the puppies get their medicine.

    @Dianedoessmiles1 - That is true. Most calls now a days are scams. So most people don't answer their phone. Although you would think with the number tied to AAA that it would not come across as a scam. Now it makes me think my number at work may possibly come up as potential scam. When I get to work on Monday I am going to call myself and see how it comes up. That was awesome of you to tell that person to not rent an apartment to whoever has been using your phone number. I am sure that person really appreciated it. That landlord now gets to save himself a lot of hassle.

    Well I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.
