Had to share.   Christina posted a video on Instagram of Vince jabbering and laughing and keeping everyone awake for over two hours in the very early morning.

Then this ~~

OMG, there is nothing like holding a sleeping baby.  It is
wonderful and for a little while all is right with the world.
Vince sure has gotten big.  How old is he now?
Mmmmmmmm, your turkey dinner sounds delish.  I would
opt for dressing over the potatoes, lol.   And now you have
turkey leftovers, the gift that just keeps giving.
That really sucks about those airline employees.  This out-
sourcing crap is ridiculous. It is no wonder the economy is
what it is when we give our work and jobs to foreigners.
Something needs to be done.  Make a law for taxing them
for outsourcing.  We should boycott any company that out
sources instead of employing our own people.  What the 
hell can an airline outsource??  I suppose the phone
operators that make reservations.  Makes me mad.  It
makes me mad too every time you call a company and get
people with very heavy accents that you cannot even under
stand.  But I admit shopping at Walmart because it is what
we can afford.  So we do not help matters.
Your exercise will do you well, even if it is not that much.
It is more than you were doing.  Keep up the great work.
I am going to ask Brent if he has ever considered going
online for his masters.
The last couple years of my job sucked too.  Cutting back
staff and hours and treating everyone like crap.  Everything
was about the money.  They forced out the long term
employees by making them miserable.  Replacing them with
new ones for less pay.  My friends that I get together with
were pushed out.  Gloria could not handle the stress and
her health failed because of it.  Carol was terminated for
some slight to a snotty know it all CNA.  Linda eventually
left due to stress and illness.  In some ways, having to leave
was a blessing.  I had gotten where I hated going to work
each day.  It was a relief not to face that.  I went to work
thinking, well is today the day they find something to
fire me for.  All those years of service, I was even employee
of the year one year.  But I was never treated so badly as
I was those last couple years.
I did go for my bloodwork today.  My last INR was 3.07
todays was 2.24.  So we are back up to the extra half dose
 and recheck in 2 weeks.  I am really getting tired of this.
Time to move on and maybe get to bed at a decent hour.
Hugs,

Good Morning  

Showered, dressed and waiting for a Grocery delivery.  Weather is still decent, for how long I'm not sure.  

We did go for a little drive yesterday but not too far.  It's amazing to see how much new building is going on.  We must be expecting an influx of immigrants ~ with quite a few $$ in their jeans, because none of the developments we drove by are not what I would call "entry level" or "starter homes".  Though of course, maybe they are.  What do I know?  We started out in smaller, cheaper houses and worked up.  Maybe no one else has to do that anymore. Of no matter to me cuz I'm not moving!  Ha!  

I really did have to laugh at the short video of Vince just jabbering away, totally wide awake, and Christina telling him it was 2AM and time for bed.  Then the next picture of him zonked.  I'll bet Christina wished she could zonk out too then!
 
Mike is checking out our TV viewing for tonight.  They keep switching things around so we have to get creative to watch those programs we want to see.  The two Season Finale episodes of The Librarians from 6 to 8 and then Downton at 9 and the Good Wife later on OnDemand.  I feel like we're missing something, but I don't know what.  All I can say is Thank Goodness for OnDemand!

I completely agree there should be taxation for outsourcing so it's more profitable to keep our own citizens employed and earning money and paying taxes than to employ people in other countries.  It often seems like our government is much more concerned about every other place BUT here!  
Frontier is outsourcing Mechanics and Baggage Handlers and folks like that.  I really hate to think how that's going to work ~ and how much money it will save them.  

Your description of your last working years sounded a lot like mine and later Mike's.  Good companies that used to care for their employees and have LOYAL employees became companies that saw good long time employees and a drag on their profits.  Excuse me, you might pay me a few dollars more, but when I leave you have to hire two lower paid employees (with benefits) to replace me.  Smart?  I think not.  I really believe that's what's behind the push to overwhelm our country with illegal aliens.  Companies want to force down wages, and politicians who talk out of both sides of their mouths condemn high earners (CEOs et al) while bending over backwards to ensure their ever increasing wealth.   I guess they just assume we are too stupid to get it.  No, we aren't.  We're just powerless to force you to do the right things for our country, and after a while we are exhausted from the futile effort.  

Frustrating about your INR.  Mine, too has been a bit 'all over' but not too bad.  3.0 this last time, but 2.2 the time before.  I'm not doing anything that SHOULD effect my blood, but I have gone lower Carb.   It doesn't seem to me that what I'm having should effect my Vitamin K that much, but who knows.  

Have a good day and I'll see ya tomorrow.

So totally bummed.  The Packers lost in overtime and we will not be going to the Super Bowl.  Somehow I knew we were lost when we lost the coin toss in overtime...I just knew.  My nephew Brent is so mad he cannot even discuss it.  Oh, well, there is always next year.
I am amazed at all the changes when I get out.
I have been thinking about my INR and I quit drinking cranberry juice in the morning as it is high in carbs.  It also increases INR.  So my warfarin is adjusted to that,  So by stopping it and lowering my dose last time made me drop low.  So now with the increased dose it should be better.  It is not easy dealing with low potassium/low carb diet.  It will take me a while to get used to this.
 I posted some pictures below this border.  The pics would not open within the border.  Too small I guess.  I did get my moms check book balanced.  I do not know why, but using the normal way to balance by using the back of the statement and adding all outstanding checks and deposits never works,  But when I go on-line and check for a only the checks that are not back there and subtract from the on-line balance then it matches the check book.  No clue why it does not balance by normal standards.  Well, I still need to tackle my never ending e-mail.  See you tomorrow.
Hugs,

Good Morning.

Not much going on here, as usual.  Barbara is leaving for 10 days in Breckenridge.  She has friends there and loves to ski.

I'm making meatloaf and folding laundry today.  The excitement never ends. 

There is no joy in Packer Land today, and I'm sorry.  Once the Broncos were out, I was pulling for the Packers.

I finally did the infamous Budget Book ~ I had THREE Months to catch up and it was a nightmare.   At least we are both caught up now with that nasty chore (my Budget Book and your mom's checkbook).  

The pictures are WONDERFUL!   They are such cuties, and the photography is great!  I love seeing them.

Have a happy day!

So Barbara is going to Breckinridge...where is that.
She really is an amazing woman and she ski's too.
Is there anything that woman cannot do?

Ooooh, meatloaf.  That makes me hungry for it.
Meatloaf, baked potatoes and green beans..the
perfect comfort meal.  Now I want to be comforted.
LOL

Well, damn, here I am munching on a few pretzels
and it is National Popcorn Day.  What was I thinking?
How uncouth!  It is also National Fresh Squeezed Juice Week.  I would love to have fresh juice but it takes so
darn many fruit to make a glass of juice it is just
cheaper to buy it.  But even the no sugar added
juices have way to many carbs in them, so it is just
another thing I have given up.

Happy to hear you
got your budget all balanced again.  I know it can be frustrating and when you are done it is weig

 So far Chris and Scott have been very quiet.  There is supposed to be a woman moving into the upper back apt.  She was coming to get her keys to move in on Sunday but did not show and did not come today either.  Don't know what is up with that. I hope she is nice and quiet and gets
along with Kathy in the upper front apt that I used to live in. Then all will be well, especially if Scott and Chris continue to be calm and quie
t.
That's all the news that's fit to print.  Wish I had some that was not, hee hee.

'Morning!   Colder today and we may have some snow this morning!  Crazy, crazy weather ~ no jacket one day and snow the next.  Typical Colorado.

We did nothing we had thought we would yesterday.  Mike got an urge to order Philly Steak Sandwiches and since I am trying to cut the carbs a bit I thought I would just take the "steak mixins" our of the bun.  Then we discovered that it actually comes that way if you want ~ called a Bowl.  Supposedly the steak, cheese and onions on a bed of lettuce, but they left the lettuce out of my bowl.  Fine with me.  It was good, pretty low carb and I have half left for tonight!  Mike has half of his sandwich left, so I won't be making meatloaf until tomorrow night. 

Then we were going to watch Gotham and later Castle, but Mike discovered a 2012 British Mini Series (four episodes) called Secret State, starring Gabriel Byrne.   We watched one episode in the late afternoon, then another, then ~~~ we decided to watch Gotham later on On Demand, and watched all four shows!   Really good.     We did finish in time to watch Castle.  

Nothing planned for today which is a good thing because I've been awake since 3 AM.  I finally got up at a quarter to five to come up to the Morning room so I wouldn't wake Mike getting on the PC or reading.  I packed my laptop, book and phone into my little sachel and then decided to put my pill box in too so I wouldn't have to come back to get it later ~~ and I completely missed the opening and dropped it on the side of the bed, waking Mike.   Way to go!  I hoped he could go back to sleep so I came on up to the room, got set up with my lap robe and my lap top, and then he called me telling me he was awake and going to put an old movie on so I could come back and get into bed where it was warmer.  LOL.  By that time I was all set up, so  I just turned the heat up a bit, and I hope he was able to doze off watching the movie.   Anyway, I don't anticipate a lot of action at the Butcher house today.   Ha!

I really doubt there is anything Barbara can't do.  Breckenridge is a ski resort maybe an hour and a half or two hours from here.   It's been a while since I've been there so I don't remember for sure.  It's a picturesque little town with great tourist-type shopping for those of us who don't ski. 

Good that Chris and Scott seem to be getting along ~ and hopefully good that you are getting a new neighbor, too.

I'm definitely cutting down on the carbs, but I suspect it may not be enough to make much of a difference with me being so physically inactive.  I would really like to shave off the extreme excess even if I can't touch  the rest.  All ya can do is try, right?   

Pretty tag ~~ Thanks!!

We got snow overnight too.  I awoke to the plow cleaning out the drive and parking area.  Had a good nights sleep and no issues with the C-pap lately.  I am sorry you are having issues.  Did you try that breathing thing that you all found on face book?  My sister tried it and it worked for her.  I sort of tried it and it did not.  But I fall asleep pretty quickly because I breath deep and even to regulate myself with the C-pap and it puts me to sleep.  
As far as the low carbs thing, that is why mom likes Jimmy John's you can get all their sandwiches as an unwich, where the fillings are wrapped in lettuce leaves instead of bread.  I am bad as when I get one I want the bun.  It is not like I eat them everyday.  lol.  We now eat salads everyday for lunch.  Now I am wanting a philly steak.  I wish we had more places that deliver.  We do not have much in choices.  We no longer even have a Chinese place that delivers.  We can get Pizza, Italian, Chicken and subs.  That is it.  Ala Romas Italian has a lot of choices but they are a bit pricey.  I wish I had more money, lol.  I am going to have to start cooking as mom seems to forget a lot and cannot seem to recall what she needs to do when cooking.  She has taken to making the same stuff over and over.  Tonights meal sucked.  The noodles were mushy.  And the alfredo sauce runny.  I hate mushy noodles and runny sauce. She had taken to making it with rice and I do not really care for that but I eat it and do not complain.  That is why I need to do more cooking.  I can read a recipe.  Just never had to cook being as I was always alone.
I wish mom were more adventurous when it comes to TV and watching new shows.  She is not.  There is so much I would watch.  She has gotten used to that I like Glee and will watch it...sort of.  This is it's final season.  I also told her I wanted to watch Galivant and she is dealing with that too.  I watch Criminal Minds On Demand when she is at church as she really hates that one.  Most everything else I do not watch any more unless she does too.  It is a good thing she likes COPS, Forensic Files, Northwoods Law, etc.  So many good movies and unless it is a romance she does not want to watch it.  Such a shame.  I also like a good scary movie now and then but not her.  I can understand that.. and I can tell Louann and Bruce that I would like a scary one and watch it with Bruce...Louann is not much for it but will watch it.  No plans for tomorrow...but I should clean the bathroom, it needs it.
Hugs,

Hello.  Yes, it's SNOWING, and it's only 27 degrees.  Winter returns.

I felt like absolute crap yesterday morning.  I didn't even get dressed all day!  By late afternoon I finally started to feel like a person.  Sheesh!    So last night I snoozed through parts of several shows we were watching (how irritating!) and finally went to sleep around 1AM.  I woke a couple of times (3AM and 5AM) and both times I thought sleep was over, but it wasn't.  I slept until 8 this morning!  Whoo Hooo!

A new Season of "The Fall" with Gillian Anderson as an Irish Supervising Inspector started.  We watched the first season last year and liked it but it was so dark and intricate that we decided to re-watch the first season last night, before moving on to the new season.  The re-watch is letting me pick up more details and it's very well done, but very 'dark'.   After watching two episodes, we went to bed to watch more TV, but wanted something lighter.  We have been re-watching the 7th season of Murdock Mysteries because season 8 will finally be available to us next month.  Absolutely love that show!

Then still looking for something lighter to watch before going to sleep, we found a new-to-us Australian show "A Place to Call Home", and we both enjoyed it.  We'll continue watching the series.

Everyone else talks about doing fun things and going to fun places and being with fun people, and I talk about what I'm watching on TV.  I think that says about all there is to be said about us.   LOL

smiley19

I have done that breathing thing (4-7-8) and it does help, but apparently not enough when I'm so wide awake.

We are pretty lucky about delivery.  We have a great Chinese restaurant that delivers, a so-so Russian that we have used occasionally, good pizza and the Philly Steak place ~ which also has absolutely heavenly onion rings.  Darn!  When we got this last order I had one very, very small onion ring, and the subway fixins without the bun, so I was "good".  I wish I could say I didn't want half of the onion rings and a bun, but that would be such a lie.  LOL

I really need to lose as much as I can before I need the Echo (which is a year overdue) and the Defibrillator replacement surgery, and I no longer lose like I did in my long lost youth, I suspect a combination of age and inactivity.  Sigh.   I am down 5.4 lbs in three weeks, which isn't exactly "bad" but given how fat I am, and how much of that had to be water weight, definitely nothing to brag about or be encouraged by.  Still, better than nothing I guess.

We used to really like Criminal minds, but we really don't care for it much now.  It's gotten so cruel.  Still watch some of the time, but when the killer is dismembering people when they are still alive or worse, we move on.  Maybe it really hasn't gotten worse, but the news has so it seems more 'real' now, and it kind of creeps me out.    I still like a good serial killer (lol) but I'd just as soon they do the killing off stage and then we come and track them down.  Ha.

I think you would like some of the British, Canadian and Australian shows we've been finding and enjoying, and I think your mom might even like some of them too, like 'Lark Rise to Candleford' (British) and this new one 'A Place to Call Home' (Australian).   With Lark Rise, you might need to put on closed caption, though. 

Have you ever watched the Murdock Mysteries?  It's Canadian, set in the lae 1800s, and Murdock was a CSI before there were CSIs.  Fun to watch him use the new science of "finger marks" to find the killer.  I think you'd like it, and your mom might too.    We watch on Acorn and I'm not sure where else you can find it.

You can see my life is being lived on the TV and the PC.  Rather pathetic, huh?  lol

You are ready for Valentine's Day!  Thank you for the cute tag!!

The challenges now seem to focus on Valentines, so that is what I make. This one was to be a Valentine theme and you had to use a ding font. So the Love on top center and the hearts with tails are from the font.
They rest is from a scrap kit called Lucky in Love. The kitten is by artist Ash Evans.
I have never had Russian food. How would you describe it? I really have no clue what kinds of foods they eat and how they prepare them. When we were young adults, my circle of friends would do foreign dinner night and the host...which switched each time, picked the country and we were all assigned a part of the meal. !. Main dish, 2. Side dish, 3. Side dish, 4. Dessert, 5. Drink. It really was fun and challenging.
I miss doing things like that. Course it would be hard for me to do my part these days, but I would find a way. I remember one meat that turned out really gross. I think it was beef pounded thin, then a paste made of dates, bananas and I cannot remember what all else. Then you rolled it up and tied it and roasted it. I thought it was really foul tasting.
I am glad you got some sleep last night. Wish you could get it all at once instead of in intervals, still it is much better than no sleep. I do have to say that the C-pap makes me regulate my breathing and I am asleep shortly after putting it on and settling in. Can only recall once or twice having a trouble going to sleep.
My mom is not interested in Mysteries. She would watch game shows, trash tv, court tv and romantic movies and not much else. I do not mind some of the court shows, but some are just trash tv. She will watch Hallmark movies. I wish we had the Hallmark Movie channel but we just have the regular channel. They have mystery movies on it that sound really good.
Josh visited with us today and we talked about what he wants to do when he gets out of high school. He could stop going anytime as he has enough credits to graduate, but since he does not know what he wants to do he continues to go. He has asked his boss to move him into sales because since he is not always working in the garage anymore they moved his tool box for to make room for a new hire. So now when he needs a tool he has to cross the room to get it and he says it is stupid and a waste of time. He definitely does not want to be a mechanic. He is going through firefighter training now for being a volunteer firefighter. He would like to be a firefighter but would have to go to school to do so and he hates school. He also talked about becoming and EMT. He really wants to help people. He has such a caring heart.
Ok, time to move on to the email. Chat with you tomorrow.  Love you.

Good Morning Y'all.

It snowed most of yesterday and it's Bitterly cold today.  We haven't tested it, but the news says the highways are really icy.  I suspect our walk and driveway may be too.

I finally made that meatloaf I had planned for Monday, and it was pretty good if I do say so. 

LOVE your new border and MY new tag!  Thank you!

Hmmm. How to describe Russian food.....   I'm sure you've had Chicken Kiev,  Stroganoff and things like that.  They also have  Belini (Russian pancakes) filled with various ingredients.  A lot of "peasant" food, and often quite delicious. Mike's Russian teacher in college had his class come for dinner.  She had walked across Siberia to escape the bad things that were happening in her country, but she was Russian through and through.  She said the soup Borscht was a cleaning out of the fridge ~ lol.  We used to have three wonderful Russian restaurants in Denver and Boulder called "The Little Russian".   I LOVED the Borscht in the downtown Denver restaurant, and didn't care for it at all in Boulder.   I loved the Russian Salad (finely cut up veggies and chicken) in Boulder and didn't like the one in Denver.  We always had a shot of flavored vodka before dinner, served with a cucumber on a small rye bread, topped with sour cream.  Ah, memories.   

I got a good night's sleep again last night.  Praise Be!!

I love the new Hallmark Mystery channel!  I wish you could get it.  They are showing old Hart to Hart, Diagnosis Murder, Murder she Wrote, etc, but they do have a lot of new movies they have developed themselves.  I'm really excited that two of "My" authors books are being developed as series for the HMM channel ~~ now if they don't change everything I loved about the books!

One is Charlaine Harris' Aurora Teagarden mysteries.  I loved them and they are doing them with Candace Cameron Brue staring as Roe.  Should come out in a couple of months.    Harris is also the author of the Sookie Stackhouse (Vampire) books that were made into the True Blood series.  SOOOOO different than the Aurora Teagarden series.   Those are romantic with well developed characters.  

Another is Joanne Fluke's cookie shop mysteries and it will star Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady from Days of our Lives).    I love these books too, and I can hardly wait!!

I do wish you could see the new series we are watching "A place to call home" (streamed from Acorn).  I do think you'd like that.  Set in 1953 Australia, involving a Jewish woman convert who has lived through the Holocaust and time in a women's concentration camp in Germany, and lost her husband to the Nazis.   Now back in Australia she is building a new life for herself.  In the first show while crossing the Ocean on a ship, she saves the life of a young man who tries to kill himself, and she becomes involved with his wealthy family.  As the show progresses we learn that he is gay, and has married the sister of the man he loves, who hasn't a clue.   There is mystery and romance ~ and I'm loving the music!  Shades of my long lost youth!

I can see Josh being an EMT and saving lives.  He just impresses the heck out of me.  I hope he finds something he truly loves, and in time, someONE, too.

See ya tomorrow.

Thanks for the recipes you are sending my way.  Any that are low carb and easy please send my way...the easier the better.  
I know that I have had Chicken Kiev from Schwans but it is probably not the same.  As far as Stroganoff I have never liked it all that much, but have only had it in prepared mixes like Hamburger Helper, lol.  I have heard of Borscht, isn't it beet soup?  I would probably like it, as I like beets.
I think that A Place to Call Home sounds very good.  Is Acorn a free to use service??  I get so confused by these streaming video sites.  If it is, I will check it out.
The new tenant, came by last night to get her keys.  She seems very down to earth and not the usual insane types we have been getting.  She had her grandson with her, about 4 yo and very cute.  If the cleaning is not done by this weekend in the new apt she is going to finish it herself.  So I think she will be around this weekend.  The landlord has been around a lot working on her apt.  He has remodeled a closet/hallway to make the area more organized and useful. He quit drinking completely.  Now, instead of beers in his hand he usually has one of those power/energy drinks.  I think the drinking had to so with him leaving his job.  Too bad as I really enjoyed the cheese gifts, lol.  Though he did bring us some chocolates the other day.  Milk Choc and Dark Choc Truffles.  The packaging was in the shape of a Christmas Tree so I am sure they were on clearance somewhere...but that does not matter, they were still delish and surprisingly low carb.  The dark choc were only 21g carbs per serving which was 4 pieces.  I think the calories were like 270.  The milk choc were 22.g of carbs.  Not much of a difference.  
Well, that's it for me tonight.  
Hugs,

Better late than never?   Marcela and Ramana (I have no idea how to spell her name) came this morning, and there is no way I can talk to you while they are working.  They did work fast and were out of here in an hour and a half and everything looks good.  YAY!

It started off really cold but we've warmed to 45 degrees, and it's supposed to get even warmer and stay that way for the next few days.  Snow left on the walk and driveway after they shoveled has melted so there will be no trouble getting the mail.  

You can assess the quality and excitement of my life by my conversation ~~ The weather and the TV shows I'm watching.  

I did have an exciting experience this morning.  I slipped my feet into my shoes without using our two foot long shoe horn!   Now just putting your shoes on without 'help' doesn't sound like a big deal to you normal folks, but I was thrilled.  Do you think I can do that again tomorrow?   Oooh, I hope so!   My feet have been so swollen I couldn't even get my boots, which I ordered in a larger size, zipped up ~ hence my not wanting to put foot on snowy surfaces.    WHEEE!  No Big Foot today!

We got Acorn WITH our Roku device.  Roku allows you to access all sorts of free streaming channels plus all the streaming channels you are paying for on your TV.  On it's own, Acorn is $50 a year, but without Roku you can only watch it on your tablet or iPhone or PC.  We watch a LOT on Acorn because we really enjoy the British shows.

I'm so glad your new neighbor seem nice, and normal!  Fingers crossed that she really is.  Good about your landlord giving up drinking, too, though it's a shame he lost a job he really enjoyed ~~ and you lost your good cheese! 

Thank you for the tag!!!

Good Morning 

OhMyGoodness.  Three days in a row of getting a good night's sleep.  I hardly know how to act.  Yesterday was such a nice day.  Nothing special happened, but I felt good all day, both physically and mentally.  I'll take another such day, please. 

Yeserday Mike and I had a date in the Library with a lovely glass of Jordan Cabernet and some Baby Swiss and Aged Sharp Cheddar cheese we got from my niece for Christmas.  Clannade playing in the background, and the conversation flowing.  Lovely. Then we finished the meatloaf for dinner, watched Grimm and then (very sadly) finished watching the last two episodes of "A place to call home". I know a second season was released in Australia, but i can't find out when we will get it here.  smiley83

We are going out to early dinner at the Bonefish tonight.  Maybe we can find something to bring home for tomorrow night's dinner.  

Have a Happy Day!

I didn't come here yesterday? I cannot believe it.
I could have sworn I did. I really am having memory
issues. I think it is because one day just slides into
another and I do not know if something happened 
yesterday or a couple of days ago. So weird.
Yay, I hope the good night sleeps keep occurring.  
So much easier to face the day. Yay also for a
clean house. I cleaned the bathroom and mopped
the floor today. Mom did the kitchen floor.
Another yay for the non swollen feet. I hope they
stay that way.
I have an appt with Dr. Hatahet this week. I need 
to have Suz take my card from the C-Pap it to the
C-Pap clinic to have it read and they will send a print
out to the doctor. The readout on the machine says
I have only used it over 4 hours 22 out of 30 days.
Which is not true. I have knocked the damn thing
on the floor a couple times so hope nothing is wrong
with it. I did not take it when I slept at Fauska's 
and had to take it off a couple of times when I had
the cold and could not breathe. Also a couple times
when it was shooting water through the hose. Still
I am sure it was not that many times and I always
sleep at least 5 hours so we will see.
I have Roku, so that means I should have Acorn.
I will check it out while mom is at church tomorrow.
We have started watching American Idol and there
are some really awesome singers.  One more night
of auditions and then Hollywood.  I need to be going
to sleep so that I do not sleep so late in the morning.
Will chat with you tomorrow.
Hugs,
