  1. It is a little warmer here but strong wind makes it feel very cold. Glad I do not have ski patrol today. I have had my two vaccines and my DH had his first last week. I did not have any side effects except for a sore arm. When I go into a patient room and they have their mask off I ask them to put it on. I tell them I am old!
  2. Got my vaccine today. So far no side effects. Not even a sore arm
  3. I for one have worked on and off. My nurse manager has been great to work for. I am 68 years old so we are trying to keep me off the adult floors. Especially the covid floors. I have been working my pediatric and neonatal floors. She has allowed me to be on call if our census is low. So far since March we have had only 2 positive kids. One test came back positive but had no symptoms. Was in for something else. The other was in last March and we eventually transferred him to a big medical center. We eventually heard he did well and was discharged. I enjoy working but will not take chances. I
  4. Well, I am not ready to give up my passion of cycling and skiing. One by one my bike tours are being cancelled this summer. Plus my skiing came to abrupt stop in March. I am going to be 68 soon and know I do not have that many years left to be able to do both. It is like I am losing my time to do things I enjoy. Part of these activity are social. My DH and I have been going out on our own when the weather has been nice but it is not the same as riding with friends. I do not want to pick a new passion. I am a very active person and these have been taken away from me plus my gym I was goi
  5. Missed this in Raleigh and also missed Grease with timing with a bike trip. Looks like those dates may work this time. Something to think about.
  6. I have been to the grocery store a couple of times but normally do not go into places. Been out walking everyday and occasionally biking. Do not wear a mask when walking or biking but do stay at least 6 ft away. We gave up riding the bike trails because they are to busy with walkers. Hard to social distance when they will not move to the grass. We tried moving over to the grass with the bike and almost buried it into soft grass and mud. I have been off work all of April and will return on May 8th. Will have to be refitted for N95. I have one in my locker that I was fitted along time ag
  7. I am on a 14 day self quarantine before I can go back to work. I was out skiing in Colorado when they closed the ski hills and I drove back. I was not scheduled to work till the 30th of this month. Because I was out in a area that had cases they made be quarantined. I have not been out to any place since they told me but I have gone out for a walk with no interacting with people. I have talked to my nurse manager and we agreed that I will not take any patients with the virus because of my age. So far we have not had a case at my hospital. Started my spring cleaning early. Finishin
  8. Where were you at in Michigan? We are camping in Nothern Michigan now for 12 days.
  9. I also will be camping and bike riding for the next 12 days. Limited access also. Some internet and poor cell service. Miss Clay. Maybe he will come alive.
  10. What kind of trouble can we get in. Clay where are you?
  11. Thank you for the pictures. Did not go to the Founders Brunch so did not see what he was wearing. Looking good in those pictures. I had so much fun this weekend seeing everyone. We did not stay at the Omni but it worked out we were there a lot. Our hotel was about 4 blocks away and had free shuttle in the city center so we took it many times. I walked back and forth a few extra times to get some steps in. The concert was great. He sounded wonderful and I even got to hear some early songs that I never saw live since I did not start going to concert to Christmas 2004. TITN and I
  12. Willing to send money. Tried to send message and it would not go.
  13. Back in 2009 my DH was in the same position. He had worked for the company for 38 years at the time. His job moved to Mexico. He was 58 at the time. I ended up picking up enough hours to get us by. Within months that same company filed for bankruptcy and turned the pension over to the government which took 60% out of the pension and then took away our health care. My DH decided to go back to school and get a second master degree.(because of the way his job went it was paid for by the government). He finished that and then in 2012 the parent company of the one he was let go of was looking
  14. Love the thread title! Been busy working and getting some end of the year stuff done for committees I am on. I still have to watch the last Salon interview.
  15. Good morning everyone. Had grandkids all day yesterday so today heading out to do grocery shopping and then maybe will have a chance to watch BOLD. I have not had a chance yet to listen to WOWT. Need to download it and listen. Not enough time in a day. I also have to watch a DVD I got from the Library called Victoria. It is the first season. I finished up last week watching all the episodes of The Knick. Found it very good but because when they finished the second season they were not sure if the were going to renew it did not completely settle all the story lines. They decided not
  16. Hi guys. Read here everyday but do not post much. Was sad to see CAT close. I also read there but life has been busy and have not posted a lot. I enjoyed our weekly chats and we had a lot of us on it. This was my first board I joined and so happy it has survived all these years. I refused to give up on Clay. He has given me so much joy and I have met so many awesome people. I am so hoping that someday he will sing to us again.
  17. Off to ski patrol this morning so stopped in to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
  18. I live 7 miles from Flint and stayed away from downtown today. Watched his speech on TV. Thought the speach was really well done.
  19. I plan on going to the Gala. Oct. Is hard for me but I am hoping my ski patrol recert is not that weekend. If it is I now have more instructors and I think I can desinate the work. Just going to be a little tricky for me to get my recert in at another ski area. I missed all Gala's till 2011 because of this and even missed the one in DC because of it. I have been saving to go so I will make it happen.
  20. Idy: The book sounds interesting. I ordered from the library. Let you know what I think.
  21. A little late but I hope everyone had a great Christmas. My son and his two children were here on Christmas eve. My son in Denver called after he had openend his gifts and we had given my youngest son and family their gifts the week before. It is now quiet now. Have to work tomorrow so back to getting lauundry and misc stuff done.
