Do you have a favorite Southern (US) expression?
Alternatively (or additionally), what is a fave British one?
A very close friend of mine is sick. I've known this woman since I was born and her daughter grew up with me. The woman is my mom's best friend and has been for over thirty years. The daughter also has a one year old son.
I have missed two days of work to stay in and around the hospital with this girl and her son. Not many people have come to support her, she is like a sister to me and I've been helping her any way I can. It looks like her mom is going to be going home, but won't likely be out of the hospital until tomorrow.
Is it ok for me to miss a third day of work to be with my friend or should I go back to work? She wants me to stay because she is alone except for her son, but says she will understand if I can't.
She has also always been there for me and I have more than enough annual leave (though maybe not a happy boss or co-workers).
For the holiday season coming up I want to do something special for the nurses(and the one receptionist) at my doctor's office. I see them about twice a week and although I've only been seeing them for about five months they've already made an impact on my life just by how sincere and compassionate they all are. I've been through many doctors offices in my life and these ladies really are the absolute best so I just want to show my appreciation for them in some way.
I'm already planning on making up some cards for each of them individually but I want to do something else too.
Here's my question: If you work/ed in an office setting what is something you would like someone to bring in for you? Or do you just have any suggestions at all for what I could do? I'm really low on funds so unfortunately it can't be anything extravagant but this means a lot to me so I'm willing to scrimp a little elsewhere to do something.
I have a digital photo frame that my grandmother gave me in 2008 and I still haven't ever really used it because it drives me nuts to have cords visible on tables or walls. If you have one, where did you put it and did you make any effort to hide the cord? Bonus for pics.
Are you good at home decorating? I feel like I'm terrible mostly because I get paralyzed by indecision. I want to start painting some walls in our house but I just feel so scared of choosing a terrible color. Will you show us pictures of your last home interior project?
Do you know anyone who was murdered?
Do you know someone who has murdered someone else?
