    Re: 29th of November

    Greetings all!

    The tornado blew right by us yesterday & landed two counties away. It was an F-0 but still did a fair amount of damage. Weather is much better today, just windy & colder.
    We took a ride to one of the Amish shops & got some pretty poinsettias for our house & several green bunches with ribbons to take to the cemeteries next week.
    Made a vegan vegetable pasta soup in the IP for dinner. I need a break from all the heavy food the past 5 days, haha!

    PQ, I’m getting jealous of your weather, LOL
    I am basically caught up for now, mailed a package out this morning. Working on some new lace ornaments. I like to add a few new ones each year. I’ll get some in the mail to you 7 see how long they take t o arrive

    Pauly, I need to catch you upon some new lace ornaments this year too. Glad to hear your G-pup is settling in. Hope your day was good!

    Sam, retire already, haha1!!! I know it gets harder & harder to keep going to work.
    I read again yesterday about the hospitals calling back retired nurses - I’m not going. I don’t have the stamina for those 12+ hr long days anymore. I’m not even certain my immune system is up to par to fend off all the hospital cooties. It’s sad, I know the young nurses are having a hard time.

    Mick, 3D dental impressions? That’s impressive, I hate the old fashioned way they do them.
    Hope you don’t actually get snowed on this week, eek!

    Hello to Det, hope you’re just busy man!

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are well!

    Have a nice night everyone.

    Re: 29th of November

    Hi All...

    I am struggling. More than I was willing to admit to anyone, especially myself.
    I usually hit the hay around 9pm to read and unwind, fall asleep around 10:30pm then wake around 3am, but then am able to go back to sleep for another 3 hours.
    Not last night. After going to bed around 10pm I woke at 2am and was not able to go back to sleep. At 5am I watched the news and then went into work at 7am.
    Usually when I can't sleep it's because I can't turn the thoughts off in my mind, this is different. There was no thoughts rambling around in my brain, just blank until I started thinking about work.
    There is nothing going on at work as we are technically still shut down, just the Childcare Out of School Program is running which has nothing to do with my work, other than support, which is all working fine.
    Had a meeting with the boss and prog coord about newsletter and website updates at 10am, usual monthly meeting, and then went in and told the boss I was going home.
    I could hardly talk to him as every time I went to say something my voice would crack and I could barely stop myself from crying.
    There is no drama going on at work so I have to think it's because subconsciously I'm really feeling the affects of what's happening with Covid in Calgary.
    The ICU's here are now having to decide who gets treatment or who gets to continue with the treatment they are currently receiving. FFS, how did it come to this?
    Maybe subconsciously I'm thinking I'd be the one who doesn't get treatment because I don't consciously feel that way, I'm still of the mindset that it won't happen to me. Who's kidding who.
    I don't know if that's what's going on but I do know that it's not normal to quick to tears just because someone says something nice to you.
    I also feel the lack of support and direction from the boss has played a big role in this.
    I am not going into work tomorrow but do have a fun project that I'm looking forward to working on from home on my own time.
    Well...
    I got to say actually putting it into words and sharing with you has really helped, my shoulders are actually not up around my ears at the moment. LOL
    I am grateful that we all have a safe place to express our feelings. Thanks for being here....PQ

    Re: 29th of November

    Mae everybody, PQ, big fat((hug)) from me, this is a shitty time in life and I think our subconscious mind is there niggling away even though we're not aware of it, I've never seen or heard of such devastating events day after day like we are now, I'd tell you hang in there but I can barely keep myself hanging in there but we're hear to listen and try to help, Mick, is that why it asked us question mark? Cuz you were posting from your phone? Haha, Lav, glad you got some pointsettia they really add some beautiful color, Sam great to see you, up too early and I'm irritated by it, grrrrrr, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Wednesday!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    Re: 29th of November

    PQ, I also woke up early at about 3am that same night, and was absolutely wide awake for the rest of the night until morning. So unusual, as I can usually drift off back to sleep, even if it takes an hour. But that was the full moon night, and I think it was messing with me. Now on the other side of that, I easily drifted back to sleep last night after awakening at 2 am.

    Your boss’s continual lack of support undoubtedly contributed to your near tears, but the lack of sleep likely left you fragile as well. Hopefully you were able to sleep well last night, and are feeling better today -especially since you don’t have to see him today!

    Re: 29th of November

    Slo...I've never given much thought to the full moon syndrome but there might be something to it. I too was able to get back to sleep last night after waking at 2am. Once I started talking about my sleeping patterns I was surprised to learn how many of my friends experience the same thing. I had no idea and it was nice to know it wasn't just me. Thanks for reaching out...PPQP

    Re: 29th of November

    Mick...got your PM, thanks for that. Definitely feeling better this morning. Sounds like you've found a new hobby and it may even be profitable for you in the future. At least it doesn't involve climbing any ladders. LOL You're actually changing my opinion of Dentists especially if I don't have to have a mouthful of gunk! Good luck with tier 3, it sounds like your side of the pond may be out of this pandemic first. Don't overdue anything today....PPQP

    Re: 29th of November

    Good evening friends,

    Chilly & partly sunny, just like winter.
    Keeping myself busy with the usual things & some sourdough baking.

    PQ, hugs to you friend
    Honestly, when you combine current events & the fear they drum up with a full moon - you end up with a great big teary mess. I completely understand, i think we all do. We have never faced such in your face stress, this is truly unprecedented. I decided at the very beginning of the pandemic that staying positive would be my best self-defense & of course following mask & distancing guidelines. We have all come too far to give in to this evil virus. Things are going to get better but it’s going to take time. We’re in this together!!!!

    Pauly, keeping the cat away from the pretty red plants will be taking up a lot of my time, haha. Hope you had a good day.

    Hi Slo, good to see you!

    Mick, we still have some vinyl here but I don’t think we have a turntable anymore, hmm. Knowing the way you like to collect things your collection will be growing quickly.
    Haven’t seen any word of recruiters looking for vaccine administrators. That I could do but I wouldn’t want to take a job away from a younger person. As badly as nurses are needed the hospitals are cutting their hours because they claim they can’t afford to pay them, WTF?

    Hello to the rest of the group & wishing everyone a decent night!

    Re: 29th of November

    Mae all - good to read everything. Well, I had my own version of "getting through" a bad patch with this full moon... so I agree, the emotions of dealing with the pandemic plus planetary intervening might just have thrown us into a "dark side if the moon" period. I hope we are all rounding the corner and getting back into the light...

    Got into the house, very cute, but filled to the gills, so not much room for my own stuff.. I'll figure it out.

    Working with clients who have patiently waited for my return (I work in the basement on their paper projects...) Also under tremendous pressure from the Tahoe organization to produce all sorts of stuff that I don't understand... like special mailings through Mailchimp, sheesh. Meanwhile my blog, which could actually be helping people, is an orphan... will figure out a way to get back to that!

    In the meantime, I am giving all HUGE HUGS from afar - you are all beautiful people! Thank you for this safe space.
