Another slow day here. Nothing going on.

Did you hear your doorbell and when you asked who was there,did they reply "Candygram"? That would be a sure sign  that your Shark had arrived. Bwahahaha. I loved SNL in my younger days. Really have not watched it in years so no clue if   it is still so good or not. It could never compare to the early days with Gilda Radner, Chevy Chase, Garret Morris, Bill Murray, John Belushi,Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin and Loraine Newman. My gosh we used to laugh so hard. Some great comedians have come from that show over the years.

Mom surprised me for supper tonight. She was working the rummage sale at church and Suz was picking her up to bring her home and she said she would pick up something on the way home.  She got me that bacon deep deep dish pizza from Little Caesar's. Been seeing it on TV and saying I would like to try it. It was good, but I would not get it again. It is really a lot of crust, which I like, but the sauce makes it a bit soggy and that  I do not like. It would be better without sauce. I have got 3 more meals in the freezer. Love a gift that keeps on giving.

I wrote annnieM some time ago and never got a response from her. I fear that things are not good there. No new tag tonight. No playing in PSP today. Hopefully tomorrow.

Hugs,

Hello 
 
We didn't make it out for dinner last night. The Shark came in the late afternoon but Mike started feeling sick so we decided not to go out.  After a while I started taking the Shark out of it's box and Mike took over and by the time we had it put together, he felt better.  Too late to go out, but we have our Land Shark. ;-)   We didn't try it, but we will today.  Now the problem is where to store it.  The Hoover lives in our hall closet, on the side where it isn't visible.  All of the attachments are on the vacuum so it doesn't take up too much space.  The Shark won't be any bigger, but we have a whole box of attachments that aren't attached in addition to those that are.  I think we need it to be easily reachable for Madeline, but they won't look too good in the middle of the coat closet.  If that's the worst problem we have to deal with, we won't complain.  Maybe it will fit in the Utility Closet if we do some reorganizing.  I'll have to check that out.
  
Mike's fine now, and the only thing he HAS to do today is go for a haircut.  The snow that had been predicted was taken out of the forecast, but it's supposed to dip below freezing tonight and then rain starting tomorrow and for the rest of the week and weekend.  As usual ~~ we'll see. smiley81  
smiley27
We don't watch SNL now either ~ haven't in years and years ~ but I sure used to laugh "back in the day".  You're right, so many GREAT comedians came from there.  I thought that Land Shark skit was so dumb back then ~~ yet I still laughed and obviously still remember it.  Now I don't think of our Shark, but our "Land Shark" (in that flat inflection free voice).  lol

How sweet of your mom to bring you the Pizza.  It does sound good and I do love bacon, and you know how I love a meal that keeps on giving.

I am guilty of releasing the Water Monster in the Powder Room for Shogun ~~ sometimes.  I mean in addition to washing my hands, when I don't let him get in and play.  ha.  He just looks and is so excited that sometimes (and I know I shouldn't) I just turn on a faucet for a minute.  He dashes over to it and bats the stream.  It really is funny ~~~ except when he bats the water on ME, or on the mirror.  lol   That's my "excitement" here ~ well, and I am anxious to release the Land Shark for a bit too.  I won't get too excited about vacuuming the whole house, I'll leave this new toy for Madeline, but I am anxious to see if we can tell the difference.  This may not be the best test ~ the carpet is really dirty!   And so it goes.

Have a fun day!

My texts with Marcela this morning ~ 

Hi Marcela 

I hope you are feeling better.  Did your hours at the restaurant change?

Tomorrow would be your regular day to clean for us, but since we haven't heard from you we have to assume that you no longer wish to work for us.  In case you were still planning on coming tomorrow, we wanted to pay you the courtesy of letting you know that you don't have to.

It's been a month and you know we can't go that long without help, so we've had to make other arrangements.

We wish you well.

Mike & Dorothy

Nothing much going on here.  Some sort of upheaval going on with ARC.  The man that works with Diane and mom from ARC got fired.  Also the woman that helped with that.  Mom got a letter from ARC that these two people were terminated and that until further notice all activities are suspended.  Diane did not even get the letter and she is the one that took over the Bingo when the JayCee's let it go. They were supposed to have it next Wed.  So now they are not. We are hoping that this is not the end.  It costs the ARC nothing though they collect $5.00 from each client.  The man they fired, his mom made the treat for the event.  The mans son is a client of ARC. So it is the grandma that makes the treats.  There are often 70 clients that attend.  That is a lot of cupcakes and cookies.  Mom and Diane provide the prizes and we get a lot of donations from families and friends.  They also provide the soda, though clients have to pay 50 cents for one or take one as a prize.  That money pays for the next months soda.  They buy a lot of circle a word books at the dollar stores...also coloring books and crayons. They stock up on crayons when school starts and you can get them cheap.  Since they hold it at our church it is free. I guess time will tell what is happening.

I hope that Mike's haircut goes well.  And maybe you will get a chance to eat out somewhere.  I really hope that the "Land" Shark meets your expectations and exceeds them.  Since we are having so much fun with the name. lol.  I cannot get Candy Gram out of my head.

Today's tag was a tutorial challenge and the tut writer sucked. I did the best I could and should just have gone my own way, lol.  Though I more or less did.

Hugs,

Good Morning!  
We've got SNOW!

  It was 81 a couple of days ago and it's currently 34!  It was supposed to rain for the next several days, but last night they were saying something about snow.  I didn't pay much attention and assumed they were talking about in the mountains.  Today is trash day and because we were to have 30 mph winds last night we opted not to take the bin to the curb until this morning.  Then when we got up the snow was really coming down.  It's sticking on the deck and grass but not on the pavement in front so far.  Just slick and wet.  We'll hold the trash for another week. The bin is only half full.  

My goodness, I was positively productive yesterday.  I didn't think that was possible anymore.   Got laundry folded, various things stored, shipping boxes broken down and taken to the Recycle bin, gave the Shark a try and then found a plastic storage box for the extra accessories and found a place for both of them in the Utility Closet.  

We were both impressed with the Shark.  I just went over a patch in the Morning Room that was maybe 8' by 4' (I'm guessing) and got up a ton of cat hair and dirt.  You can see how much you're getting in the clear canister.  I wouldn't admit that so readily, but I told you the carpet is really dirty, it hasn't been cleaned for a month and I'm not sure how clean it was then.   Mike went over a good sized spot in the Man Cave and got up even more.   It's easy to clean out (vs our old vacuum bags).  The only negative, and that may just be for me, was that I thought it was pretty heavy.  It's 15 lbs, but I thought it would be easier to push.  As I said, that may be just me, cuz I've become pretty puny.  I only run the little cordless now, and of course it's feather-weight.  Mike didn't think it was too heavy.  We didn't try any of the attachments.

Mike got his hair cut and then we had a drink in the Library and had Irish Stew that we'd frozen for dinner.  We'll do that again tonight.  Still pretty good if I do say so myself. ;-)   Good day, all in all.
smiley18
I love the new tag.  It's beautiful, and I suspect yours is better than the tut writers.  I do love the little pop of teal and green in the black and white.  Thank you!

It would be interesting to hear why ARC fired people who sound like they were making a real contribution.  It sounds like their clients could be the big losers, and that would be a real shame.   I knew your family did lots of volunteer work, but I didn't realize it was with ARC.    Of course we don't know what happened or why the firings occurred, but sometimes organizations become like Big Business and those on top can get some ego issues going.    I hope it all works out so the folks who need ARC aren't left in the lurch.

Have a happy day!

smiley18
Update:  It's 10 o'clock and still snowing.  Now it is sticking, 2-3 inches.

Good Morning and Brrrrrrr.   It snowed all day yesterday.  Forecast says we may get more ~~ sheesh!   We didn't take the trash to the curb because of it.   It looks like Winter out there now.

I'm getting more than a little "warm under the collar".   Today Madeline was supposed to come at 9AM to give the house a deep cleaning.  We have everything picked up and ready for her, had our breakfast early and waited.   And waited.  And are still waiting!   At 9:30 I called her cell phone and was forwarded to her voice mail, so I left a message.  It's 10:15, and we're still waiting.     Her mom was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and she told us she might have times when she couldn't come, but even if that's what is going on I can't imagine her not giving us the courtesy of a phone call to let us know.   And we bought her a new vacuum!   I am not amused! 

I thought my problem today would be that Madeline was going to be here a long time doing the deep clean and I can't visit online or do much else when someone is here.   Now I don't think she is even going to come!   The house is picked up, but I know it's really filthy, not having been cleaned for a month, and I also know Mike and I can't do the deep cleaning it needs.  I tried.  I am SO frustrated!   I do have lots of other names, but we will have to interview and then schedule, and now we are coming up on my next ICD download on Monday so I don't know if I'm looking at the surgery soon or what, so I really can't make any plans until I know.  Can you feel my frustration from there?  

Ah well.

Love and hugs my lovely.  Hope you're having a better day.

I did not even realize I missed coming here yesterday. Sorry about that. First I am going to address Marcela. Good riddance!!! I cannot believe she did not at least apologize for ignoring you for a month. I do not care how sick you are...you can answer a text message with very little effort. So, good bye to bad rubbish.

As for Madeline, this does not bode well for her either.  She could at least....at the very least, text you a quick note that she is held up or whatever. What in hell is happening to the work ethic in America?? Is there none anymore? I would never treat my employer this way. And they did not put up with it. One no call no show and you got a reprimand. On the 2nd one you are fired.  Unless you are put into witness protection or are kidnapped, you can contact your employer. OK, that is my rant. I would probably look for someone new. Has she ever done this to your neighbor that uses her?

I am happy you like the shark. Sounds great for picking up the cat hair that well. I know how hard it can be to get it up out of the carpet. Novia was a shorthair so not as bad as you have it. Besides you having 2.

OMG, more snow?? You can keep it, lol. Today we hit 71 and mom had Jordan come over and put the screen door on so we could open up our door.

No clue what is happening at ARC. We just know that the clients absolutely loved the 2 people that were fired. So that probably means they did not always go along with company policy. It also means they went above and beyond what was expected of them. It is sad.

Stay warm my dear friend. This tag was a cluster frame challenge.

Hugs,

Good Morning.  
We're still waiting for our new Cleaning Lady. smiley70 Maybe half an hour after I called her, I texted her to be sure she had our Land Line Number (which I had given her when we first talked) and told her she could also text me.  That was just before 11 AM.
At 2:18 she actually read the text message and responded 2 minutes later saying ~ and I quote ~  "I'm sorry not feeling well can we reschedule for next?" (Next what, I don't know.)
I waited to talk to Mike about it and about an hour later I texted her and told her I couldn't believe she didn't call to let us know she wasn't coming.  I thought maybe her mom had been taken to the hospital but even then I would expect a call.  I told her we bought a Shark for her to use and we were ready for her at 9 and then we waited ~ and waited, and waited.  I asked when she had in mind to reschedule.
That was around 3:20 yesterday and we still haven't heard from her.  I would think I had offended her by expressing my displeasure, but when I look at the text, she still hasn't READ it yet.  Clearly she is VERY interested in working for us. smiley78 I'm really surprised because I know the other people she works for and I can't imagine them putting up with this kind of thing, and I would expect she does a good job for all of them because I think they'd demand it.   It has to be Me.  I'm HEXED!

Infuriating because we really thought she would be good for us.  Now we're re-reading all the other emails with cleaning lady recommendations to see who sounds best.  Then we get to start over again.  By the time we get someone, the house will be condemned.

Sorry I have nothing else more interesting or fun to talk about this morning.   

OOoh, I love my new tag.  I don't think I'd ever heard the term Cluster Frame, but I can see what it means, and I like it and the tube you used with it.

Mike and I were talking about the work ethic too.  I might expect this in someone younger because it really does seem like the "milenials" are quite different than you and I.  Not much is expected of them, so not much do many of them feel the need to deliver.  It doesn't bode well for the country.  These women, however, are in their 40s.  At least Marcela always called if she was going to be late or not be able to come.  I am just astounded that Madeline seems to feel like she can come if and when she feels like it.   I made up all sorts of excuses for her in my head, and while I could accept them, I still couldn't imagine any reason other than being in a coma herself for her not to call!  Aarrghh.

No, both of our cats are shorthairs, but they still manage to shed a lot.  I always used to wonder why my first Siamese wasn't bald the way he shed.  Ha!  Can't imagine living with a long haired cat!

You're in the 70s and we're in the 40s!  Flip Flop!  It's supposed to be raining now, but it isn't. Much of the snow has melted because of the rain we got after the snow.    My daffodils are down to two.  If it were warmer outside, I'd put the pot out to let them have some sun.  I may still do that after I cut the last blooms off so they can soak up as much sun as possible before I put the bulbs away to be transplanted in the Fall.

And so it goes.  OOoh, I do have something to report!  I finally broke the barrier and joined the One Under Club.  No one has ever lost weight more slowly ~~ 16 lbs for the YEAR.  Still, better down than up ~ or the same as it was, eh?


Have a fabulous day!

Hello Dorothy

Do not go praising Marcela now...she did not contact you this last time at all, that is why you are moving on.  I am all for letting Madeline go for her pathetic response to your email.  The next one you hire needs to know up front that unless there is an emergency, you need notification from them if they are not going to come. I am sorry that you are going through this. As I always say, "Why can't life just be easy?"

A Cluster Frame is when someone uses a scrap kit and takes a frame and adds elements from the kit to it. So if you want, you just have to add a tube or a pic or what ever else you want to add. I added a background with a mask my tube and the font.  I usually add more than that but the tube was a bit busy so I kept it simple.  Some are elaborate or like this one, very simple.

Todays tag was a color palette challenge.  Make a tag with a choice of 5 palettes, I chose this one and created the tags from those 3 colors.

Now, 3 questions.  1, what do you mean by The One Under Club?  I do not get it in regards to your weight loss.  One Under what?  2, what is that photo of, I cannot tell. 3 is not a question just a comment.  I am sorry I got that long hair thing wrong...I thought that Chrystie was a long hair. I thought she had a full tail. Do not know why I thought that, lol.

Have a Blessed Sunday and I hope you hear from Madeline and she can sort this out so you do not have to start over.  Fingers crossed.

Hugs,

 Good Morning

Still haven't heard from Madeline.  I think we've decided that we can do better.  I'm sure she does a good job for the others she works for.  I don't think they'd put up with her not doing a good job.  It must just be me, but I really can't put up with someone saying they are coming at a certain time and then completely blowing us off, not just coming late, but not at all!   We contacted another neighbor who recommended someone and asked her to see if her person was interested in taking on another client.  If not, we still have other names.   Of course if we go through ALL the names on our list, we are going to get a reputation for being very difficult to work for ~~ even though no one has worked for us.  lol  

Nice low key day ~~ and we didn't clean house. 

Really pretty tag ~ Thank You!! Love the colors.

Answers: 1 & 2. A while back someone in the Atkins Facebook Group posted that she had joined the One Under Club, meaning she had broken the 200 pound barrier and gone one under.  I thought that was cute, so what I posted here was a picture of my scale yesterday morning showing that I had finally done the same. 

No worries about not remembering that Chrystie is a short haired cat.  No reason why you should. You don't see her often.  She's a Tonkinese, which is a mixture of Siamese and Burmese.  Shogun is a Ruddy Abyssinian.  

Hope you have a lovely day!

I slept until 20 minutes to 8 this morning!  I can't remember the last time that happened!

AND I got a text from Madeline.  She said that she got sick on Friday (which we knew) but that she had been taken to the hospital and just got out on Sunday.  She wanted to know if it was alright to come this Friday.   I told her I was sorry she was so sick and hoped she felt better, and asked if she was well enough to clean. Apparently so.  We had asked another friend to see if her cleaning lady was accepting new clients and we should find out tomorrow, but we decided to let Madeline come on Friday ~~ and leave our options open if she doesn't work out.  

When I learned that she had been in the hospital I had a moment of guilt for being so angry about being left sitting and waiting on Friday ~~ then I had a second thought.  She wasn't in a coma or dead, the only two reasons for not at least calling and letting us know she couldn't come.    I know.  I'm awful ~ but we ARE giving her a second chance.  

Making meatloaf tonight.  Tomorrow I do my ICD (Implanted Cardiac Defibrillator) remote download and in a day or two I should hear if I have some time left on the battery or if my time is up.  Mike tells me I will have at least another month, and you know Mike is always right.  I hope this isn't the exception.  lol

Then tomorrow morning I have a much needed haircut, and we'll go out for breakfast, so I won't be in until later.

Have a grand day!

  Dorothy

Hello.  I'm here!  

I thought I would be here earlier, but the day got away from me.  I did my ICD download, then on to my Haircut (good, I think, but does it ever show the need for a color!), then a very nice breakfast at The Egg and I,  Wisconsin scrambled eggs for me (scrambled with cream and boursin cheeses ~ yummy) and Corned Beef Hash and eggs for Mike.   Then he decided he need to pay a visit to the grocery store.

Several little things to deal with when I got home, but now I'm finally here.  And now I don't really have anything else to say ~~ lol.

And so it goes.  I hope you're feeling much better and having a good day!

Well, here I finally am.  So sorry to have left you alone all this time.  Today I can finally say I feel better.  The worst is behind 
and I am on the mend.  I did reschedule my Wed. appt with the Nephrolologist since I was not dragging this tired old body out for anything.  So I double up next Wed and do Denise in the morning and Nephrologist in the afternoon.
Nothing much to talk about since I have been doing absolutely nothing at all other than surviving.  I sure hope that someone shows up to clean your house.  My patience ran out a long time ago with all that.  So did she come Friday or is it this coming Friday?  I really have to catch up.
Big hugs,

Good Morning Lou Ann!   Wonderful to see you back and know you are feeling better!   I really was worried for a while there until you PM'd me on Facebook.  

I can't remember where I left off telling you about the Cleaning Lady Saga.    I could fill seven pages, but let me try to condense.    After finally finding Madeline ~~ and buying her a Shark to use when she was here ~~ we were up, breakfasted, picked up and waiting for her first visit.  Then we waited and waited and waited.  I think I told you this.  She finally texted that she had been in the hospital.  I expressed sympathy but re-emphasized that we needed her to let us know if she wasn't going to be able to come.   She rescheduled for the following Friday and again we were up, dressed and ready for her.  Then I got a phone call from her sister Gina saying she was in the hospital again.  Apparently she couldn't keep anything down.  I thanked Gina profusely for letting me know and told her I  hoped Madeline would be ok.

Then I contacted Joanne about the woman she had recommended, but learned that she wasn't taking new clients.   Then I called Sue up the street who had just started using a new Cleaning Lady who had just recently quit working for an agency and established her own business.  I thought she might be looking for clients and I asked Sue how she liked her.  Very much, it turns out.    I had the feeling that perhaps Madeline wouldn't contact me to reschedule.  Normally I would have contacted her to see how she is, but I decided to wait to see if she calls me.

So, I made an appointment with Sue's new gal, Shauna, to come and interview.  I won't go into all the detail about our meeting with Shauna now, but we were very impressed and hired her!  

I got another 5 week "extension" with my last ICD download just as Always Right Mike had predicted.  Yay!   I had been waiting to schedule other heart related appointments until after I found ou when I would need the surgery, but with this "repreive"  I made all of my appointments yesterday, so now I'm committed, and that's a GOOD thing.  Given how I hate all things medical, it's easy for me to keep putting them off.    I will do a "general" blood test tomorrow that includes cholesterol and triglycerides and such that my Cardiologist will want to see, as well as the overall basics for me to know.   I order the blood test online for $89, then go to LabCorp to have the test done, and they email me the results the next day.  Then if there is anything amiss I can take it to the Dr.   Insurance doesn't cover it, but it makes me feel a bit more 'in charge' of my own life than waiting for others to make the arrangements and dole out the results to me.  We'll probably go out for something to eat (breakfast?  lunch?  dinner?) after the blood test tomorrow.

Then I have an appointment for the dread Echo next Wednesday, and for my annual visit with my Cardiologist  on Monday, the 18th, and then my ICD download is on Friday the 29th.  After that, my schedule will be determined by "Them", but at least all these other related  things will be done!  

Shauna comes for the "deep clean" on Monday, and then starts her every-other-Friday cleaning on Friday the 22nd.   I still haven't heard from Madeline ~~ big surprise??  Not so much, I think.  I kind of don't expect to hear from her, and mean person that I am, I plan to just wait and see if I do.  If I had a different relationship with her or was really sure she was sick, I would have contacted her to see how she was.   I hope she really is well and just didn't want to 'fire' me for not feeling it was ok for her to just come when she felt like and not even bother to say she wasn't coming ~~ for whatever reason.    I wish we hadn't bought the Shark even though our old Hoover probably was overdo to be replaced.  We both mostly just grab the little cordless to vacuum between cleaning lady visits, so it won't get much use.  Other than the fact that we really bought it for Madeline, right now I'm glad of the way it worked out.   Now of course if Shauna proves to be a disappointment, I will go ballistic!  

We're going to call for a Grocery delivery on Saturday, but beyond the blood test tomorrow morning and the delivery on Saturday morning, things should be pretty quiet until Shauna comes on Monday.   

I love that you are feeling well enough to visit, but if there are days when you are too tired while you try to recover fully, don't worry about it.   You know I can talk enough for both of us.  Ha!
