Nora, I wouldn't be able to go with him, unless it was a private jet or something. I doubt that would happen. I guess this experience will be good for him even without money. It's just that we could use the money with all the hospital and doctors bills.

Bella, I get lonely when he's just gone one night. If he went to China or Japan, I am sure it would be at least a week alone. I can't sleep well without him :(. They get a lot of raw materials from overseas in Europe and Japan, so I bet he goes away for long stretches.

CopyThat,
Those floaters are annoying.

MrsPeacock,
I never sleep well when my Hubby is gone.

I think it will be until we get rid of Obama in four years when a different President is elected, before we have any hope of returning to an Employees' Market. Employers know they can take advantage of their employees, a lot of whom who are just grateful to hang on to their jobs in this horrible economy.

Yes, Bella, you are right about the job security. I know he isn't anxious to leave the place he works. I think it's also because of his age. Maybe he doesn't think he will be able to go somewhere else because they won't want to hire someone in their 50's when they can get someone younger for less $$$.

He made it home OK. I am glad for that. I hate to think about all the things that can go wrong on trips.

So, I guess I will be heading to sleep early tonight because I didn't sleep much last night. Sweet dreams, ladies!

I got my preowned opal. Not sure about it. Doesn't seem to have as much play of color for an ethiopian opal. I will try cleaning it to see if that helps. If not, I guess it's going back.

So sorry Mrspeacock that it is a dissapointment, I hate it when that happens, maybe a good cleaning is all it needs.

Bella,
A detached retina can be serious business, so thank God your husband does not have that. But he checks his eyes again in a month or so?

So you are liking moissonite? I think it can be beautiful if set well. I just am too cheap to buy it because I know with all my selling and trading, I'd probably eventually want to trade up, and not get what I paid for it. I always look at the selling and trading potential of what I have. That's the fun part for me.

Anyway, gonna go vacuum. Never a dull moment...

Copythat, I hope that all of the preowned aren't this way. I ordered something else yesterday, and I wonder if it will be scratched up or dull. I hope not. The shipping back and forth costs a lot of money.

Mrs. Poe, I can see why you wouldn't want moissanite since you trade a lot. It is nice if you want big diamond looking pieces without the cost. I love mine. Even the pink!

Well, ladies, today I have to go back to see the blood doctor. It's about 2 months since I got out of the hospital. He is going to run some blood tests that I won't get the results from for a while. I hope all goes well. I have been trying to lose weight, since that is really my biggest problem. I think I am down 8 pounds since last month.

Mrspeacock, it is very expensive to send things back, when I was ordering a lot of items a few years ago, I would easily spend $100-150 a month just sending items back, over a years time, that really adds up.
Good luck at the Drs today, I pray everything will come out well, and congrats on losing the weight, I have to lose some but it's SOOO HARD!

Sorry... Very absorbed with news coverage yesterday.

Mrs.Peacock,
Bummer on the opal. Opal is the one stone I am Leary up order as there can be such variation in the play of color. I hope your blood checkup goes well.

Mrs.Poe,
Hubby goes back to doctor in 30 days for a recheck.

CopyThat,
The shipping back is expensive if it it s major purchase. They only give smart labels for the cheaper stuff. I guess they want you to pay the insurance for the expensive stuff.

Back from the doctors. All went OK. I won't get the test results back for a while. Actually, they told me they would only call if it was bad. My regular INR number for coagulation was good. My white, red blood cells, platelets, etc. is all normal. So, as long as I hear nothing, I won't have to see the Doc for 3 months. I still have to get the INR finger stick test every 3 weeks.

So, I am relieved to be home again. I got my black spinel Statify bracelet that I ordered on Sun when they had the $20 coupon that worked on clearance. The bracelet is really nice and heavy. It seems to be made really well.

Really glad to hear the good news from your Dr. visit, hopefully you won't hear anything and you won't have to go for 3 months.
Congrats on the bracelet, did you decide to return the opal ring?

Mrs.Peacock,
That is great news on your checkup. You are doing great with your diet too.:)

I was sure that bracelet would be a winner.

Copythat and Bella, thanks for the encouragement. It's a struggle for me to lose weight, but at least I have a realllly good reason---not to end up in the hospital again!

The stratify bracelet is nice. Maybe I will try more of that if we get more coupons.

Are there any big events coming on KTV this weekend? Today seems to be Diamond Chic, Pearls and Silver.

I started writing a post and something happened and it vanished! I need to lose weight badly! I have gained 60 pounds since 1989.

I love your bracelet Mrs. Peacock! It looked splendid on the web site! I know how those Ethopian opals can vary. Some have lots of play of color and others are plain Jane.

I've been working on taxes for days! I am finished with Dad's and have started on ours. Two migraines in two days.

Where is everyone today? It is beautiful here. 57 already! I should get outside and garden!

I'm still looking at KTV on line sometimes but see nothing I would buy without a coupon. Those nice coupons just were enough to push me over the edge.

I still have piles of paper around me to work on taxes. Yesterday I got yet another 1099! Now I thought by law they all had to be mailed by Feb.

Mrs.Peacock,
There is a Spring Designer Day in March 21st. One if the designers is Tony Malvagna. Has your black diamond ring shipped yet?

Nora,
We just mailed off our taxes today. What a relief!
You should complain to whomever sent that form out late. I think by law they have to send them out by a certain date.

It is beautiful here too. Still no JTV coupons to tempt me to buy anything. They will certainly loose me as a Platinum customer at this rate. I do not really care as it is pretty much a worthless perk.

Bella and Nora, I am still working on my taxes. Certain forms like brokerage account 1099s don't have to be mailed out until mid March. That's why I can't even start mine until now. I don't think we will get a refund at all this year.

Bella, they did mail out my ring. Maybe I will get it tomorrow.

The Tony Malvagna day is the same day that ShopNBC kicks off their Gem Day. Coincidence? I don't know.
