2:24 am

3 hrs drive; that's enormous
2:28 am

in my 'old' days I didn't care about how far to drive, and 3 hours is nothing for our american and canadian babblers... but now it is definitely a milestone.

So... how about you guys? And how is the grid, apart from huge?
2:29 am
jillibus

all is well here, and the grid is not too bad so far, like other huge ones. Josh finished already.
2:29 am

the K is 4 letters, japanese word for thanks

you will get ku 4 if you finish this grid

ku4 usually plural and means something kinda odd like credit or brownie points

That was one of the selling promos for the higher prices - profits will be passed on to the growers who lost their plants. Maybe I am too cynical but that didn't wash with me.

How you?:
6:04 am
Trifioso

honestly? a little burned out on the job front, which makes me incredibly uncomfortable to say, as I totally realize that I am so, so, so lucky to have the job I do. It's just been REALLY busy lately, coupled with a busy time of year for the kiddos, and I feel overwhelmed. That, and I have taken a total of ONE vacation day in the year and a half I have had the job
6:04 am

I am strongly looking at saying something to the higher minons
6:08 am
herinfernallady

sticking it out till end of placement
6:08 am
Trifioso

how much longer do you have to go?
6:09 am
herinfernallady

err ljust over a month
6:09 am
Trifioso

I would stick it out until the end, and then ask the minions for an exit interview, and in that interview I would tell them what issues you had
6:10 am
herinfernallady

we get 3 months in one area. I think I may say something this is probably the 3rd time she has done this
6:10 am
herinfernallady

actually no 4
6:10 am

to you, or in general? and what do you mean by "this"? just generally being bovine, or is is something specific?
6:11 am

This as in been inappropriate
6:12 am

I am so sorry Herin. We were all so proud of how you did in your courses, and I so wanted you to love your new work. Sigh. But the three months WILL end, and better days will come.

6:38 am

it's a mile from home to work, so it doesn't get a lot of daily mileage; took it on some long trips (east, west, visiting family and whatnot) that put on most of the mileage
6:38 am

so regular winters of -10c and below?(crossy does not know illinois)

8:48 am

first he lost it in a small restaurant in another town; the cleaners were taking the trash out of the bathroom and felt/saw something heavy in the trash bag. Then he lost it in the ER; he had a CT scan of his head and it was on the floor in the CT room. The last time we'd been out shopping and he was sure it was in one of the stores. My daughter went outside to get the dog back in, and she saw something glint in the snow --his ring again. THAT was when se took it in

I felt very bad when I left my engagement ring on the counter in a jewelry store and left. When I realized what I had done I called the store and they told me it was not there. So I am not the only one who has lost valuable rings. They are only things.

ruby, I still feel bad but it is only a thing.

that's what I used today and then 2 hrs sleep and I was fixed
8:52 am

they are really expensive here, but worth it
8:53 am
Nef

Annie, that sounds really awful that a jewelry store wouldn't notice a ring out like that! Was the store very busy that day?
8:53 am
rubyfoo

they also have little things that stick on and administer pain meds locally that seem to work (and they are less cumbersome)
8:53 am
JBV

Nef, I love those lost and found stories - there was some magical connection that wouldn't let that ring be lost
8:54 am
Mom

Annie, it could have been the clerk that took it
8:54 am

you are right, jbv, it's like the dogs that get lost and come back months or years later

ruby, when I worked in the hospital I felt that the $2.00 per pack was worth it so I could work my 8 or 12 hour shift and I went through 2-3 packs per day. Now that I don't earn as much; I'm more liable to use the reheating packs for around the home and the disposable ones for work only as necessary (clinic days especially)
8:57 am
JBV

ruby, my husband had a prescription pain patch that helped him a lot with his sciatica - much better than the over-the-counter ones
8:57 am

do you know which medication it had in it?
8:58 am

the heat packs cost 12 euros each which is about $17!

Holy Cats, ruby! Are you talking about the IcyHot patches and the Therma Care patches? That's what I use mostly; but I recently found some tiny patches which have salicylate in them that help for smaller areas (Salonpas)
9:02 am
JBV

Here's what made it even more special: my son and I went to New Mexico to visit my brother and the day I arrived was my birthday. My son opened up his little backpack and took out the box with the heart from my hubby - I couldn't believe he let this kid carry such a valuable present all alone (he was 5 years old!!!)
