Good morning Becca! How are you and how was your Thanksgiving?


My Thanksgiving holiday was wonderful! I got choked up during everyone saying what they were thankful for thinking of my mother. Her birthday was Friday and she would have been 59. Sometimes I just want to call her and hear her giggle. . .I have been hearing her giggle a lot lately! I giggle just like her! I am a little frustrated today. I have been hoarse for a little over a week now and Saturday night was the worse! I don't have a cold but my voice keeps diminishing. Saturday I started coughing for the first time and it was so horrible it felt like I cracked a rib and it made me vomit because it was such a hard cough. That was the one and only time I coughed, but now my chest is hurting. I call today for a doctor appointment and I can't get one with the doctor I have been seeing for 10 years since I got married and changed insurance. They tell me to call my husband's insurance company and have my primary care doctor switched. I call the insurance and the lady tells me she will call me back in a week because they are so busy! So now I am trying to get an appointment with my husband's doctor because I am really tired of not being able to talk! I need my voice! I answer phones! Lol.

Other than that, Saturday DH & I will be making our Christmas Tree...I can't wait. I'm such a child when holidays come!!


Hope you're all having a great monday!

Hey ladies! Back to normal until Christmas!


Today is my early day so I am planning on cleaning and decorating! Not much else going on that's for sure.


Good luck on your thesis, pavez!


Hope you feel better, Tressy!

YAY for almost Dec! :)


Same as Elise, nothing much going on here. Still crazy busy at work but finally got set up with a laptop at home so that when I'm working OT I can do it in my PJ's at home! :) Hopefully that'll help me get caught up a bit. I start training our new person next week.


I'm going to try and get our tree up this weekend! :)


@Tressy, I hope you feel better soon! Try hot tea with honey or warm lemonade in the meantime!


@Pascale, I'm the same way. I turn into a giddy lil 5 year old every Dec. Good luck on your thesis

Hi ladies!!


Tressy - I'm doing good and our Thanksgiving was very nice and quiet.  We had a wonderful dinner just the two of us and got a lot of things accomplished around our home. That is SO SWEET that the family said that about being thankful for your Mom. :)  How are you feeling? I sure hope you are back to being healthy.  I know how frustrating it must be to not feel good, especially with what you do. Insurance companies are a huge PIA!!!  They have changed so much and not for the good I must say!


Pascale - How did your hubby's first day of work at his new job go? I hope he is enjoying it so far.  How is your thesis coming along?  I'm sending good thoughts for you for it!  I can't wait to see your Christmas tree and I agree with you, I definitely turn into a little kid when it comes to Christmas.  I love everything about this holiday!


Elise - Did you get a chance to start decorating?  I am hoping that I get everything done by Saturday so we can go and get our tree.  If not, we will go next week for it. 


Ashley - Yay for being able to do some OT at home!!  That's good to hear that you will be getting someone to help you out. I hope your training goes well!


Work seems to be crazy busy for a few days and then slow the next few days.  You never can tell with this woman.  LOL - At least I get to work from home and that is one of my saving graces. It cuts down a lot on budget.  : )  Yesterday we got our first snowfall of the season and we got about 5 or 6 inches.  Some of it is still on the ground, but this weekend the temperatures are supposed to go into the 50s, so I'm sure it will be gone by Friday.  Other than work and getting ready for the holidays, DH and I are going to try to go into NYC next weekend to see the Rockefeller Christmas Tree and also might be heading down to Atlantic City to help my extended family clean up from the superstorm.  I will also be starting my Christmas crafts tonight, and I will try and remember to post pictures of them.  : )   I hope you all have an amazingly wonderful rest of the week!!!  <3

Becca - sounds like you have some exciting things coming up! NYC is on my bucket list, have fun! :) Hopefully there isn't too much damage to clean up... :(


Yes working from home is surely helping and I'm hoping that it's a great way to open the door to possibly working remotely once DH and I move out of the Bay Area. I'm not on the phones so I don't see any issues with it. :)


Have a great rest of your week/weekend ladies!

Helllooooooooo ladies!!!


I have missed you all! Just had time for a two minute pop-in and headed straight here :-) 


I have had so much going on the past few weeks, it has been hard to get on here. It sounds like everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! We hosted a bunch of airmen/women at our house who weren't able to go home for the holiday. It was my first time preparing Thanksgiving dinner and we ended up having almost 15 people. Everything turned out SO great, I still can't believe it! If we had to be away from our families, we couldn't have asked for a better day. But MAN - between that and Black Friday shopping, I was absolutely exhausted. I spent all day Saturday on the couch. Hehe :-) 


Just wanted to say hello and let you know I'm thinking of you all! 


@Pascale: Hope your thesis went well this AM! 


@Elise: How is the new place looking for Christmas?!


@Tressy: Hope you are feeling better, hon!  


@Becca: HUGE hugs to you for going to help with clean-up. You are such an awesome person, your kindness and selflessness always amaze me. 


and @Ash: HUGS, just because I heart you <3 


Hope everyone has had a great week! Hurry up, Friday!!

Hi girls!! Don't you just love this time of year? I love hearing about everyone getting ready for the holidays and spending time with loved ones! 


I've had a pretty lazy week, and I am loving it! To prep for Thanksgiving, our house is looking nice than it has in years, so I haven't had to do much housework this week haha. We haven't gotten our tree decorated yet, but it is up! We are letting our newest cat get used to it, we got her in April and I am not sure if she has never been around one, and I would hate to have her topple it. 


@Becca, you sound like a busy lady!! (as usual!! I love that about you! Always so much going on, and always something to help others.)


@Pascale, I hope the thesis went well! Hopefully now you can spend the rest of the next month enjoying the holidays!


@Elise, any pictures of your decorating??


@Tressy, Hope you are feeling better pen pal! (I just realized I haven't written you back!! I am sorry!)


@Ash, I hope your work eases up with the new person coming in. It seems like you have been slammed for a while.


@Debbie, that is awesome that you were able to host for those who couldn't make it home. It sounds like a GREAT thanksgiving!!
