    Thursday 11/16

    Good morning I actually got up in time to check in this morning..Its been a busy week....Yesterday at work was scary...we had shop lifters in the store again...and in the men's department again.. We can't do anything but stand there and watch them do it. Really upsets me..

    I also had a couple of scary days on the bus...There is this super creepy guy that Has showed up in our area. I talked with him before I knew to stay away from and him how creepy he is...Monday I could have sworn that he was following me..I rode a different bus for a hour until I knew he was no longer on the bus I needed to to be on to get home. Then Tuesday he did end up on my bus route to get home...that day I texted mom the entire time I was on the bus with the guy...I got off at my regular stop and waited for the bus to pull off with the creep on it before I walked home.

    I didn't see him yesterday at all but I only took the bus part of the way home.

    Today is work and total relaxation and laundry.

    I also go twice a year and always get the max frozen off. He froze a piece off the top of my nose last visit and I feel something is back. I see him again in February but do want my nose removed so am wondering I should make an earlier appointment. The sins of youth have come back to haunt us. I have always been a sun worshiper and when the boys were little we spent all day every day at the pool with Tinker and her kids. Now I sit in the shade slathered in sun screen and wait for the derm to slice and dice pieces off me. But if it means I keep my nose I will even wear a hat!!!!

    Jostoy, if you put sunscreen on the exposed skin when you go outdoors, that should help you diminish the skin problems quite a bit.
    I enjoy the outdoors as well, but here we really (!) need to protect our skin. I guess it works, because I don't get sun-related skin problems. Also, my DD who is outdoors more often, she has gotten skin cancer things removed several times, has not had the problem since "remembering" to use the sunscreen.

    I'm using tea tree oil on my nails. Last time I was hospitalized one of the things I picked up there was nail fungus, feet & hands. I've used the fungus solutions on my nails, to little or no avail, but finally my oldest DD DD got me a bottle of the tea tree stuff (for nails and skin). It's taken all this time, and my nails almost look normal again. Only my thumbnails are still in questionable condition, but I've cut them way back and continue applications, and I can see that they are starting to grow out again, and show signs of normalcy coming up. (I've been to the dermatologist.....two of them....and they're totally useless on nails!). When I go out, I use a "natural" semi-opaque color to disguise them. Except one of the cancer doctor, who was surprised i was successfully, if slowly, treating the problem by myself.

    JoGee, I'll look into the vit. E, but right now I'm to keep Vaseline on the frozen spots, and in 3 days I take the bandage off the arm, but am to continue to put neosporine on it, and keep it bandaged.

    Maye, I had 7 other areas "froze" as well. 2 on the left hand 3 on the face and 2 do overs on the face from last January. But I refuse to stay out of the sun. Outside is my enjoyment.

    Good morning.
    I’m glad to see so many people have posted.

    Bethina - you’re sure doing the right things to avoid Creepy Guy.
    Elaine - I’m so sorry to hear that this go’round is so much tougher on John. And, in turn, on you. (((((John & Elaine)))))
    Cookie - you’re working too hard. You need to schedule some break times throughout your day to keep from getting really sick.
    Jostoy, mention possible scarring to the surgeon, and he/she might be extra careful with it. I’m glad it’s taken care of. Maybe pick up a bottle of Vit E oil to put on the area daily after sutures are removed, if you get the surgery. (A lady told me how her child nearly fell out of her car. She had pulled him back in but not before his face had hit concrete and gravel. The docs removed the grit, but his face was a mottled mess. She put the Vitamin E oil on him 2-3 times a day, and his face healed without any scars. It surprised the doctor.)
    Maxie - Andrew is old enough to be responsible for his homework. Laying it on him is a good thing. All kids should understand responsibility for their work, their actions. One teacher said to think of schoolwork as a job. You don’t work, you don’t get paid. (Yeah, one smart-aleck kid asked what we’d get paid for doing our schoolwork. The teacher replied, in this case your pay is your grade. The higher you keep your grade, the higher job in the work force was your job. The lower your grade, the more menial and dirty your job gets. You decide if you end up with the better jobs, or the hard-labor jobs.).

    We have no plans, per say, for today. It’s a matter of cleaning up as we go, and decide how much stuff we keep, or don’t.
    We have loads of books, too, to be donated somewhere. I have mine in sets. Few are going to be keepers. Very few. Senior Living is going to mean very sparse living arrangements. I’ve got lots of cooking/baking cake decorating and candy making stuff. That’s going to be hard to ditch. I have 2 shelves of music books, and will have to be extremely selective. Stiff hands or not, I want to keep my piano. Clothes, too......I’ve accumulated so much, but wear mostly select favorites. Then craft stuff, yellow grandkids and great grandkids. Heh heh heh.
    So then, that’s all my dilemma today, getting a start on that.

    Hope you all have a great day. Stay warm! ☀️

    Maye, we were typing together. Too bad the grands grow up (and too busy) so fast, huh? 🤗

    good Thursday! It will be another rainy day here, but not as windy. I woke up with a song going over and over in my head so I put on music and have a nice background to post with you all.

    About listening to the news: I don't listen as much as I used to. I turned on Good Morning America in the living room and could hear it but not the kids...Now I rarely have it on...
    After one of the national tragedies, my son't school brought in counselors to talk to the teacher and staff. Stuart told me something they said that has helped me a lot. Too much tragedy type news that you can not do anything about (like you live too far away) can impact your emotions and we should limit how much tv and media coverage we have...if we can do something like donate, volunteer or some action, then we do it. So, I understand that not everyone dswould have heard about the shooting here. And I don't expect anyone to follow all the details.
    Maxie, I totally get how you feel (as much as I can). One ting I keep telling myself is No matter what the world is coming to, I will not be a part of the problem.
    There were people I know who immediately started trying to make a political issue of this tragedy. The sheriff pointed out it wasn't a gun control issue; it was illegally altered guns. And the school staff kept those children from being gunned down without guns.
    I am in favor of the 2nd Amendment; I don't want anyone to think I am saying otherwise.

    I have decluttered another corner! Neither Becky nor I want to put our luggage in the outside shed so I found a space that wasn't being well used in the office and now both of our suitcases (mine has a smaller one inside) are out of the way and still handy. She is very ready for her trip back East.

    I need to get moving...love sitting here with you all.
    Beth, you are making the right choices to stay safe and keep it up!

    Have a good day, All! Prayers for us all and the ones we love!

    So happy that Kathy may finally be doing some growing up. It just takes some problem children a bit longer to see the light. Bringing their finances to you is a big step! I thought when she was upset about being late for work the day of the accident on the highway that there may be a glimmer of hope to her maturity. You have done a good job! But do take care of your own health!

    I had a surgeon remove a growth from my arm several years ago. The incision is about 4 inches long and they go as deep as they can then stitch it tight. I have a small indent but it is not anything you notice. The first summer we beach vacationed and my little nephews ask if a shark bit me and that is what we called the scar from then on but it has filled in and I pay no attention to it. I am just so glad you are getting it taken care of....they did leave my stitches in for two weeks so be warned!

    Very smart of you Beth. Be careful! Evidently the world is full of creepy guys...they are everywhere!

    Shopping with my son today and I do not have to cook. Last night when Jon took ANdrew home he told his mother we would no longer be ruining our evenings or health (one of us is going to stroke out!) doing homework. If he refuses then it will not get done...period...the end...no argument...no homework problem. When Jon worked afternoon shift he did not see Drew much and let him get away with crap. His mother does not want to be bothered which is why we were told last year to do homework 'since he was here' which actually means 'it's your problem'. If he is playing some type of a game it is a good one because three people in this house help with homework and all three of us are over it. This is not a new problem but it has been allowed to grow. So Andrew is my bitch for the day. If I were allowed more than one I could go on about the government since I caught up on the news yesterday. I do not need a closet, I need a bomb shelter because we are going to blow up real soon and the fallout will take us years to clean up. Sickening! And we the voters are accepting it...omg!

    Sun is shining but feels cool in the house. Today I will buy the last Christmas gifts and be done...good feeling. Guess the tree will go up next weekend after Thanksgiving. Where is the time going? This year has passed so quickly and I am not ready for another year. Hear an alarm going off in the house so better get moving. It only takes me a little bit to get ready...hey look at me! No maintenance!!! Or I just care less and less with each passing year. Have a beautiful day all and hope the sun shines on top of your head. Just wish it were a hot sun!!!!!!

    Cookie, with all you did yesterday, you used up all your energy for at least a week. If you're not careful, you'll be in the hospital yourself. As you know, diabetis is nothing to ignore. Got to watch your working with that medicine.
Working...
