    Mae all -

    Hope everyone has had/is having a good Saturday!

    Thanks for all the jokes, Mick - I seriously hope that you can cut and paste them into your post; I hate to think of you typing all that with a bum arm! How are you healing? Your attic office looks great - enjoy it!

    Lav, I admire you for the craft shows - that is a ton of work before, during, and after. Glad the boys' visit was fairly calm, and enjoy your new paint job!

    Pauly, I remember that you are allergic to pineapple... good detective work, maybe that's the culprit. Hope you can find a different turmeric blend.

    PPQ, so interesting to hear that the boss changed his tune a little... good luck refining your comments. How are you feeling? Glad that it is a weekend, I bet.

    Did two long trips up north this week - one to help some friends prep the downsizing move out of their home of 18 years... sad, but they must move. Tried to be moral support as well as packing support. Yesterday I cleaned and cleaned and exhausted myself. I did take the initial 2 ivermectin pills, and gave the dog his canine version. I want to be clear that I did NOT have scabies - just possibly a canine version that looks similar to other mites. I wish I had that version - it apparently lasts 3 weeks and then goes away... this has been going on since late September. Lav, I only had one new client this fall, and I suppose it could be her house (very dusty and with 2cats). Fortunately I followed my gut and told her I would have to pass her on to another organizer, so I never went back there. I actually think it is a bird mite or tree leaf mite. I started getting bites on my legs and the it just blossomed... do you remember me talking about the little covered porch? We are 1) on the ground level, and 2) I sat out there a lot with Zander 3) I walk him out there 4 times a day. I think some came in on my clothes and then made a home. Hopefully some day there will be an end to this... in the meantime, I am an expert vacuumer, and all fabric surfaces get a daily cleaning. Everything smells like cedar oil, which is not bad. I lint roll the bedding and all our clothes every day... now I sequester both clean clothes and dirty clothes in big zip locks bags. Not sure what else I can do... sent the bedroom rug out to be cleaned, and will let them deliver it only after we are DONE with this. So, that's my story, thanks for listening.!!!

    Wishing a lovely end of weekend to all -- cheers ---
