Happy Birthday Zig! I hope you have a wonderful day!! Marci, I am so glad that you remembered for us all.

Milkdud, did I miss something? I thought that you had left your job? Did you start another?

DeeMarie, I think that is indeed how we first met! You gota do another Virtual Dinner!

The Virtual Dinner was great! I cooked for six, all very non-dietetic fare... I couldn't get my pics to post but everything turned out great! Check over at the cooking forum and look for South American Virtual Dinner : "Menu", and "What are you doing now?". I am doing this AGAIN next week for another group of friends. A good time was had by all : )

Off to work!

Zig, I hope that this is a terrific day for you. Heck! Make it last all week long!

Zig - Happy Birthday to my SS sister! I agree with Tikanis "make it last all week long". I am so thrilled that you have returned to this board. Thanks for all your input and support. You are a great source of inspiration for me.

debi - What a relief! Glad it went so well - we missed you.

Marci - I saw that little rabbit, rabbit you snuck in there LOL.

Tikanis - that sounds like so much fun. I may have to try that some time. Are you having another treatment soon?

Milkdud - a month is a long run, I am sure it will do you a world of good -just be careful and listen to your body.

Dee - you are the best stepmom! I forgot to post after you wrote about your Diana Ross episode - funny, but I could just imagine it all.

Enjoy the beautiful day!

RE: SS Mon. 5/1 thru Sun. 5/7

Happy Birthday Zig - hope it's a great one.

BJ - can't believe your parcel hasn't arrived yet! Mailed that April 15th.

Not a good weekend for Mom - doctor had to be called in - my Brother is coming home from Florida on May 15th - Hoping that's what she is waiting for.
Thanks so much for all your thoughts and wishes.

I did get to golf a couple of times of last week - not as much as I would like, but that's OK too.

Take care everyone.

Oh my goodness, 2 parties this week! That calls for a song from your resident diva (sorry Maddie, I got here first!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU................
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.........................
HAPPY BIRRRRRTTTTHHHHDDDDAAAYYYY DEAR, SWEET, BRIGHT, COMPASSIONATE ZIG & MAGIC KITTTTYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEE
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!

Hope this week is special for both of you and those you love.

Joanne, there is not a day that goes by where I don't think about how you are coping with your situation. It was almost 18 years ago that I faced this with my mom.

Glad to see that most of you are up and about and feeling better.

I am back in the office with only 2 meetings today and most of my department is either working from home or on holiday. I've decided to take about 3 hours to thoroughly go through this place and toss out old files and junk that I do not need. It's worth the time because I don't feel so much stress with less around me.

Hope everyone has a great day! Make it count.
Take care, eat healthfully, and NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!
(those extra 3 Nevers are for you, Beege)

Joanne! I got the birthday box last night! THANK YOU so much! It's a tea party-in-a-box! Special yummy teas, a wonderful tea press, a bejeweled friendship spoon to "stir up" conversation, pictures of London/Ontario and a "To Market, To Market" cookbook full of ideas for fresh cooking! I was looking through the cook book and getting hungry---I'll have to visit the Pike Place Market and cook something up! The best of all, though, was the photo of you and your family! You look like someone I would LOVE to spend some time with! Fun, fun , fun! And your daughter's wedding must have been a fairytale! Lovely! Everything! Thanks so much! What a great day you gave me! SOOOOOOO special!

Well, I am writing an assignment for the 'Ick' class today. I'm finishing up all the work for this week and next Monday, so I can have a strees-free DERBY! I leave Thursday night and arrive in the bluegrass state Friday morning! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!

My neighbor is moving to London June 2nd, so the neighbors are haivng a luncheon for her today. I will miss her--she is very nice. Her son and daughter-in-law are moving into her house. I'm sure they'll be as nice as she is---just younger!

Maddie! I want to see you. I'll email you my and DD's flight info and see if we can hook up somewhere!

Have a great day. Sunny here and about 60.

RE: SS Mon. 5/1 thru Sun. 5/7

Have a great time BJ!

QOD: Does anyone have the questionnaire that most of us filled out when we first started the birthday/holiday swap? I would love to have the new members fill it out...makes it easier to know what to include in their package. (Can you tell I'm still trying to shop for Donna?!)

We had about 98 children of employees in today for workshops and special events. I was an escort for a group of 6 boys (aged 11-13). Since I had back-to-back meetings this morning, I only got them for the afternoon. NOW I remember why I did not want children LOL! They knocked me out....kept trying to round them up like steer. They finally settled down in the advertising seminar when they got to create and star in their own TV commercial!

Meeting some old colleagues for dinner tonight. One I never got along with, but she comes with the group. Will try to be on my very best behaviour but she has lots of trouble with personal boundaries (like in the middle of a staff meeting....."say, you are always smiling. How many times a week do you have s@x?" HUH? Wish me luck! haha

Make every day count!
