(((Yums))) good advice from my fellow WAISTers, the only other thing to do is to get your butterflies flying in formation! I used to do a bit of public speaking - would you like to swap places with me?
(((Tubs))) I'm sorry that your peepers are so bad, I do hope that the planned procedures will help. The holiday is going to be great fun - I bet the boys will be beside themselves with excitement!
(((grumpy, miserable, anxious, unwell and niggled WAISTers)))
Spence, I'm glad that you have been in touch with The Dragon. Please give her our love and tell her that she is sorely missed in the lounge. On a similar note, has anyone heard from Noggy recently?
I was out with bff this morning and Cleo is glad that I am back. I know this because she is doing her Happy Dance up and down my chest, tummy and leg!
Thanks for the good wishes. I am feeling generally OK about tomorrow - as long as I don't think about it too much! It's not the procedure that worries me, just that there is so much depending on it. There's nothing I can do to influence the outcome though, so I'm trying to live in the moment rather than dwelling on it. Spect I will pop in to see what you are up to sometime on Friday.
It has been conformed by 'experts' that my computer is fecked MS is wondering whether to get himself a tablet and let me have his lappie. I'm unsure what a tablet will actually do - can it use word, office, money etc or is it really only good for net surfing and apps?
Don't want to buy something because it is cheap(er) and then discover that it was a waste of money because it cannot do what we need it to!
(((Podds and Daffy))) we will lock you into a room together so that you can inflict your grumpiness on each other!
JFF, a 'Nigel' is a niggle.
Chugs, that is a great sum of money to be raised in such a rural area, so glad that Monty did you proud.
Hope you get your home back soon Snaily, I'm sure it will help you to feel more settled.
Great to hear that Mrs K has the bit between her teeth. MS and I were running at the same stage, even if we rarely actually ran together. It was nice to have a mutual interest, that's something we miss these days.
It has been mainly dry here this morning and mild in the sheltered areas. However, it is getting increasingly windy now and bits of tree are starting to fly around. Hope it is calmer by the time I go to choir this evening!
There is no real problem to showering with the antiseptic, although it does take a load of conditioner to stop my hair looking, and feeling, like straw. It is more of a problem having to not take the NSAIDs as that means increased pain. I'm not thinking too much about Thursday or beyond, half expect to have the appointment cancelled at the last minute.
(((Yums))) Daffy is right, the aim of Buddhism is not to make you feel grumpy! If you are being (or feeling) taken advantage of then only you can change this. There are lots of ways of doing this without causing offence - such as going straight on to the meeting from elsewhere so that you can't be taxi, or just telling them straight. Glad to hear that Mrs Dawg is going well.
(((Pods))) sounds as if it is more than time for a change! What is the job situation on Plannit Fannit?
(((JFF))) Sorry that you have a Nigel, can't offer any suggestions I'm afraid.
(((Snaily))) you know what they say 'when you are going through hell, don't stop'!
Glad that you are feeling OK today Spence.
Equipment hoist was working so I managed a.n aquagym this morning and it was my first day of antiseptic showering. Despite conditioner, it hasn't done much good for my hair. MS and I have done a sluggie today as bff is otherwise engaged (in Cambridge with son and hubbie).
