The TVM - It's December!

:yippie: Way to zap the spammers, heliona! Wo0t!

One of the squirrels who come to my back yard has an injury.
Poor little dear has a bum left hip/leg.

Monday afternoon, I saw him going for peanuts
He had a mark across his shoulders and couldn't stand up
He would try to eat a peanut and fall over.
He managed to get one down and went for another
It was so hard for him to move
So I tossed a bunch as close to him as I could
And thought for sure the poor thing wouldn't make it through the night.

The next morning I saw him! :D
He was still limping very badly,
But the mark across his back was less.
He grabbed a peanut and ran under the bushes by my cedar tree
So I slipped out the back door and put a bunch of black oil sunflower seeds and peanuts close to the tree.

Didn't see him for a couple of days
But this morning I did. :D
He's still a bit wonky on his left hip
But moving much better.
He can actually sit and eat his peanuts now.
I'm guessing he fell or was brushed by a car.
But I'm glad he's looking much better.

Aw...poor little guy. Hope he keeps getting better. This time of year a lot of critters get hit by cars. I go out of my way to dodge them if they run out on the road.

Hi, everyone. Sorry I've not been around...I come home from work totally beat.

I almost quit my job last week...Monday was really bad. And then Thursday was worse. Every day I went out to my car at lunch time and cried out the stress, then managed to get through the next 3.5 hours. Friday was better, I didn't cry at all! But now the butterflies are back.

It's going to take a few weeks to get over this, I know. I've been able to figure out how to do some things by myself, and I'll be learning to do passports soon. I can fill out the form to send them to Philadelphia, but I'm not allowed to "help" people, take their money and have them swear they are who they say they are.

And the first pay check Friday didn't hurt. Once I'm through my probation, however, my check will take a hit for health insurance and pension and, probably, union dues. I haven't decided if I'm going to join the union or not. We're not a union family. However, I was talking with my uncle yesterday and he said since "fair share" is usually pretty close to the full price I might as well just pay for it.

Looks like the spammers are starting up again.
I've flagged the latest in hopes our Mods will zap them forthwith.

Good morning all.

The paycheck always helps a lot, Iris. :D
And it doesn't hurt to be covered by a union. Around here they've started screwing around with the OT rules for those of us who are not union. :P
Not that I need the OT, but if I'm working it, I wanna get paid for it. >-O

Congrats to your friend, nl. A nice wedding will be coming up soon?? :D

And today is NATIONAL SPANISH PAELLA DAY.

All the prawns/shrimp are yours! We does not like them. I wonder if that will be an issue when I'm in New Orleans? They seem to put prawns in gumbo, jumbalia (have no idea how to spell that) and all sorts of other food dishes down that way.

Iris, yay for pay cheque. Always good to get paid. I have OT built into my pay. I usually only do OT when someone is on leave. They have not decided who is covering for me when I am away as yet...

I am hoping Cara and Chas don't get married in May or June as I will be away (unlikely as it is so close) and I want to be there! I am guessing a December/January wedding as Cara is a teacher and will have time off then. Also she likes the beach so probably a beach based honeymoon as well.

Well, I was hoping to take a half day off of work, getting the oil changed in the car, getting my driver license renewed at the DMV....

They were all too efficient. :P

Even with stopping at the store for stuff for supper, I was only 2 hours late for work. :P


And again... :P

Oh, the TVM is much, much better, nl.

Actually the DMV in my area, if you catch them before the crowds,
Can be quick and nice.
But catch them after a couple of hours
And you can get some snarky people behind the counter.

Yay! :yippie:
We're in the rain shadow!

This morning the rain just came down like it was coming from a fire hose.
By mid afternoon. SUNSHINE!
It's still very sunny while other places are getting doused. :D

I hate this day too. (And you can believe that!) I'm grateful that today is not a work day; I hate going in to the office on April 1.

And yes, I'm still here! :D I usually hang out in Guilds these days, though I took a few months off from this site (no real reason).

Pretty good day over here, as well.
Though I didn't do any yard work.
Have to many things to do tomorrow
So I'll get to it on Tuesday.
Though yesterday, I noticed my Gladiolas are sprouting. :D
And I yanked a big ol' weed out of my garden.

Having Chimichangas for dinner tonight.
It's going to be a bit later than normal
My youngest is working late and my oldest is watching "Logan"
The weekends are our family dinner nights.

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend
And nl. I hope your Monday is going well.

Weekend was nice.

One of our friends (who was my maid-of-honor 26 years ago among other things) hosts a small research conference here every year about this time (she'd love it if it got larger), originally focusing on Mithraism and other cults of the Roman Empire, though people tend to stretch things a little which is fine. On Friday night they all go out to a restaurant, and Saturday they do research in Sterling Library, on Saturday night they have a potluck Roman feast in their hotel suite and tell each other the gist of their day's researches, and Sunday they go to the Yale art museum where there is a mithraeum. We (almost) never go to the conference, but for several years we've been going out with them on Friday night. Then last year I decided to join the conference, and the Saturday night gathering, and hubby joined us at suppertime. Well, this year I didn't take part, but on Friday night we went to dinner with them, to an Indian restaurant we've been going to for a few years now, and Saturday night we went to the supper too. It's not always the same people, but we usually know some of them from other places anyway, and we've gotten to know the diehard researchers over the years, so it was a couple of very pleasant gatherings.

Today we ran a couple errands and had a quick lunch out, and I did some laundry when we came home, and now we're being lazy. :)
