Thanks y'all.... I've felt like one big, twisted knot for quite a while now.

Heh...I'll show him. I'll get a good 'sick on' and let him take care of me for a while.

....or maybe not.

None of us ever want to hear 'you have cancer'. I can say I'm relieved that I didn't have to hear it again..at least for today.

It's time for a little relaxin' .....
Mix a giant Margarita & breathe a big sigh of relief !

Had unexpected surgery this morning. Went In yesterday for an EGD. I was unable to keep food down and had intense acid reflux that started about two weeks ago.

I've never had acid reflux before so knew something was different.

Five hours after laprascopic surgery I'm feeling so much better...I can actually drink water again and keep it down! I expect day two and three to be more painful, but it will be so worth it.

Checked in on the forums on the phone app while at the hospital myself, but in the maternity waiting room, as DIL and DS had their first little one and our second granddaughter. A little cutie

I remembered to log on...

I planted all my "cool weather" crops in containers outdoors today...lettuce, spinach, radishes, green onions, peas. Crocus are blooming like crazy out in the front yard. I love Spring.

I did some dancing in my living room in between plantings to get some exercise. My mini stepper sessions are boring me again.

All I need is 3 good rainstorms to wash the salt off the roads and it's Mustang convertible cruising time!

AND...I changed my avatar to a waterfall (Chittenango Falls) in honor of the melting snow. This is prime time to go waterfall hunting in upstate NY.

Last night I went to a "job fair" to apply for my job. A different company is taking over the contract, the pay scales are being reduced by almost 50% (that comes from the feds, not from the company) and qualifications are being raised. The qualifications are not an issue for me but the pay cut is.

So next July I will do my part to alleviate the unemployment problem and create a position vacancy by quitting.

Walt, I can't believe you'd let a little thing like a 50% cut in pay stand in the way of earning a paycheck. What ever happened to the old-fashioned work ethic, the 'get-er-done' mentality this nation was built on?

What's this country coming to?

I replanted my peas today. The squirrels dug up most of the ones I planted three weeks ago. I stapled chicken wire over the raised bed to keep them from digging these ones up too. We'll see how that works. I also replaced the handle on my axe and sharpened it.
