Good Day and Poison Ivy Recovery

Great day all around today.  Knocked a presentation out of the park to my boss and his boss with my entire team present.  Very very good.  Then I ran off to a doctor's appointment with a specialist about my varicose veins.  We have a follow up appointment scheduled to do a procedure with injections that she says will fix it all up.  Unfortunately, insurance won't cover it, but it's not as expensive as I thought it would be.  So June 13th I hope to see the last of the nasty veins on the back of my right leg.  The end of itching in the middle of the night.

On the flip side, Tommy is getting over from poison ivy or some other kind of contact rash.  It showed up on Wednesday afternoon, but we think he was in contact on Easter Sunday during the Easter Egg Hunt at my sister-in-law's.  I don't blame them though.  Tommy is the only kid that kept walking through the few areas of brush in their backyard.  Every other kid avoided it, but Tommy walked straight through it.  Ben…

When It Rains It Pours

It's really been pouring here.  We're just now trying to find out what it's all going to mean to us.  First, DH found out the company he works for is going to be sold.  This was on March 19th.  That same day, he found out that his boss had a heart attack and was in the hospital.  A week later his family decided to turn off life support as he had two more heart attacks at the hospital over the week and had no signs of brain activity.  He was only 58 years old and had already battled colon cancer with chemo two years before.  It was his son's wedding we went to in Maine back in January.  DH and I went up to Lake Placid, NY for the viewing and funeral March 29 - 31.

The following Monday, they officially gave DH his boss's old job.  It's sad, but true, about "who has to die around here to get a promotion".  DH has really mixed feelings about the promotion, but with the sale of the company, it will give him more protection with a better severance package t…
