This board!!! I think that I'll just check in for a few minuets but then the evening is gone & I haven't done a thing! It's even worse now that I'm trying to figure out the new board!
This is a though question! I've had so many nice things done for me. I think the nicest is when my DH makes me breakfast! At least twice a week!
Hey Stacy I found you!! I think you handled your situation quit well!
This is a tough question...not sure...
When going through chemo,I received $250.00 CASH in the mail to be used in "any" way I wanted.....what a shock & thoughtful offer.
Of course, the first thing I did was use it all on my outstanding medical bills.
To this day I never told my distant cousin I figured out (handwritting) it was him.
What goes around comes around & I too have made smaller "surprise" payments.
I don't say yes unless I really want to do it. When I worked at a corporate job I had to do so many things I didn't like doing I decided back then, "One day I will not do what I don't want to do". So, that is what I do now.
Gosh, I know the feeling - I too have a hard time saying No. It is always yes even if I don't really want to do it. Dh gets mad at me alot about it also... He goes if the neighbor needs help let them find someone else for a change to do it... and that I don't have to be the only one to help them. But I just can not say "no" even if I want to... If you find a good answer let me know and maybe it will help me also. Good luck on the cake , wish I knew something to help you out, but I don't do cakes very much - they always fall apart on me. lol Hope you have a wonderful weekend. HUGS my friend.
I say yes way to much. I think I just like to help. The older I get the more I say no. I am kind of selfish with my time these days. My mom makes wedding cakes. I could probably find out how she gets the cake to bake stong enough to hold all the icing if you would like. Good luck.
Good afternoon Acesgame - I would have said just "thank you" to your co-worker for the compliment. You should be proud of your accomplishments and don't let anyone take you down. You ARE smart and caring... Hopefully I won't have a broken foot next retreat - not hopefully, I WILL NOT have and will be able to walk around, etc. I really hated that I had to miss this last one. But there is plenty of time for all us to get together again. Have a wonderful day... HUGS
Hi Stacey dear friend. So glad I found your blog. I know you wiull always have something to say. There is nothing wrong with being proud that you take the time to do continual education. They called me over acheiver all the time, even now wiht my quilting classes. I just remark.....the more I learn the more I can pass on.
I know in your field of oncology, and from talking to you in person, you are very knowledgeable. I can tell and hear it when you speak. Be proud it shows. SO when someone tosses a compliment your way, just smile and say thank you.
So check your emails because you and I won a half price retreat at Aldridge inn in Vanalstyne of somewhere like that and we can have 6 -12 people to get half price too. Might want to get together and set our next retreat. Fun...
Tell SYbil hello for me. She was a joy to meet. Wish she would join here also.
Hugs. I am going back to bed now...it's almost 3am. Meds are keeping me awake now.
Just found out monday, my mom's BF of almost 20 yrs have pancreatic cancer and has for 2-3 years. Not sure what's happening there. But like you, I will read up on it and see. He is 81 so njot interested in chemo. Waiting to find out what kind of cancer cells. ((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))
I don't blog well either, my spelling sucks and so does my English...LOL but I'm giving the blog a try as well!
I think you handle it well.
