    Good Morning All :D

    It's' Monday so it's a No Meltdown day around here - make sure you difficult child got the memo :tongue:

    Since it is Monday, that means I'm here at the house with bill paying, laundry, cleaning. I may make a BJ's run depending on how much I get done this morning. After almost a whole week of concentrating on easy child's move, we need a little TLC here on the home front.

    Enjoy your Monday :peaceful:

    It's going to be a scorcher today-definitely sounds like we'll be hitting a record high and possibly a record high low if that makes sense. We are starting the day at 72 degrees which I think is higher than our average high for this time of the year or at least close to it. We will heading into the 90s with possible heat indexes of 100. Have I mentioned before about the no ac at my school:hot:
    After work we have a meeting for difficult child and then we'll do a quick visit.

    I'm hoping we will get to the health club tonight:exercisebike:

    Wishing everyone a peaceful day:kisses:

    Yikes! that is hot. Hope everyone get popsicles for snack today. : ) They are my cure for everything child related.

    How is difficult child doing? Any progress?

    I'm at mom's for a day then will head back home tomorrow at lunchtime after visiting the in laws. It's pretty warm but fortunately not as bad as where you are.

    Hope you all have a productive Monday.

    Good Morning everyone.

    Happy Victoria Day, for any Canadians around this morning. Happy Monday for everyone.

    Sharon--Gosh. The low is higher than your average high. A real scorcher indeed. Hope your meeting for difficult child goes well and you get to the gym as planned.
    Fran--I agree. Popsicles are the cure for whatever ails you on a hot, hot day.

    Today is Victoria Day up here in the Great White North, or "May 2-4" as it's more commonly known (not-so-subtle reference to a 24-case of beer). Stores, banks etc. are all closed, so it's kinda nice and quiet. Some of the kids (I say kids, they're all university age) on the street will probably have a fireworks display once it gets dark. I might sit out on my lawn and watch for a little while.

    I finished my workout (Yay! I almost cracked the 10 minute mile today. Slow, I know, but better than the 15-minute mile I started with when I started running again a few weeks ago) And now, despite it being a holiday Monday, I have a boatload of work to get through. I am going in for surgery on Wednesday morning, and the last thing I need is to return to a huge backlog at work, so I am trying to get things organized at the office ahead of time.

    Hoping everyone has a wonderful Monday!

    G'day, people.

    Just a quick greeting in passing, I haven't got time to greet everyone in person.

    I started my radiation treatment today, plus saw a shoulder specialist. This week is going to be ridiculously busy and life is getting a bit out of hand. I'll write more when I have more time, but for now I have to go rest. I didn't expect to feel anything from the treatment on the first day, but I think I am already aware of reactions.

    I am very glad to have husband driving me to and from appointments.

    Today being the first day, I had to have measurements taken, topless photos taken with various things attached. I had to stick little white dots on my chest area (over nipples) and then hang a weird arrow with a spirit level around my neck. I told the nurse that if she produced a chicken out of her bag, I was leaving the room - as in, "erotic is using a feather; kinky is using the whole chicken".

    Tomorrow after the treatment, difficult child 3 sees the therapist, then husband & I see a financial advisor about cashing in my superannuation pension. I need to make a decision soon but I also need advice. I'm thinking, maybe tomorrow was a bad choice of time after all. But it's done now.

    Wed & Thurs we have to get difficult child 3 in to school. husband will take him while I'm in treatment, then I will follow on in the car to meet up with the blokes. Each day we have other appointments afterwards when really, I just want to get home. But I have to do this, otherwise various problems will be hanging over my head and I won't be able to rest properly anyway.

    Hopefully by next week we'll be in a better routine. Friday is expected to be a quiet day at home, a day off from treatment. I plan to sleep!

    Enjoy your Monday.
