She doesn't want to treat it. I don't blame her. It's just sad...
I am sorry to hear that. Is your family supporting her decision?

About the snow -- can the idiots on the news be any more hyped up? I mean, this IS Chicago. It certainly is not unusualy to get snow during the winter.

That said,I hope they're wrong and we get like 2-3 feet of snow. I've got plenty of food at home and can use a day off. Just let me get home tonight, first.

Ours is melting as soon as it hits the ground. Sorta pretty, though.

Yes, we all understand and support her. She's almost 93 and the chemo or radiation will likely kill her before it cures her.

Working from home today. Fire going, snow falling, nice music in the background, and enjoying that I will have no part of the evening commute. Quite a nice day, apart from actually having to get some work done.

It feels like Friday. I'm a little disappointed every time I realize that it is only Tuesday (it IS Tuesday, right?).

Yes, Tuesday.

I need to find warm black dress pants tonight. I have a $50 gift card that says I will! Our weather here has been chilly but we can wear jeans to work so it's no big deal, but Vegas' weather is looking very similar and while I could get away with jeans for the conference, I'd rather not. So my mission tonight is black pants and a jacket/blazer that is warm enough but will travel well.

You know it's going to be good, packing snow.

What I really want to do tonight is get my snow clothes on and make a bunch of snowman up and down the driveway -- ala Calvin & Hobbes. It would be fun. I live on sort of a main road in town.

NOW it's sticking. I probably should have parked in the parking garage.

I have a pair of ponte knit pants in charcoal that are warm and look nice. At least I think so.:)

When's your conference?

If I had magical powers, I would MAKE this Friday.

I'm retired, don't have to go anywhere. Car's in the garage and the snowblower has electric start. Life is good.

I just noticed my dog was gone. Didn't realize that when I used CCcleaner it wiped out my sign in.

I was just thinking the same thing. I was actually looking at those cartoons yesterday. I like the one where he makes it look like a snowman is being chased by sharks.
