At long last - FRIDAY!

Friday, December 19, 2014

I'm really hoping that the work issues will resolve themselves - did a "working lunch" to get a fix in so I can get the output disseminated to the end users........now it's a waiting period to see if this permanently fixes the issue.......sigh.........

Thankfully, I don't need to pack a lunch - however, the venue is a bit strange (somehow I can't see how such an event could be held at essentially an *arcade*, when the company has a solid semi-conservative image - guess the area I'm in is skewing *younger* than I figured........sigh........)

I know, I know ......."free meal" - but even that is a "red flag" - have no idea what's in store, quality-wise.........sigh...........

I just want this day to *end* already (and it's only 4:20AM as I type this)!

TGIF? Hmmmmmmm - the jury's out on this one, and will be for a while..........I hope you enjoy yours, Sparkies!

Back to business - well, *almost*..........

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Turns out the issue was the power adapter going kablooey - causing the battery to drain down.........a simple trip to Staples did the trick! I SOOOOOO did NOT want to buy a new laptop! I should be able to include this in the credit card payoff if I play my cards right this month, too!

Now if I can only get solid resolution on some technical issues that are making the job painfully frustrating........needless to say, eating went totally off the rails...........

Enjoy your Thursday, Sparkies!

  Blackberries have been $.99 for 6 ounces. They're not quite as good as raspberries, but they still are very tasty!!

    I just bought 3 small containers of raspberries that were marked down low, but still fresh. I love berries of any kind.

$#!@# laptop *shut down* and downright *died* in the middle of Sparkin' yesterday morning - what a pain in the seat! Am using an alternate and have a local place I'll drop it off with today - but the impact on my routine has been horrifying - can NOT get a good rhythm going with the way I have to do things..........of course, this is Murphy's Law at it's *absolute worst* - credit card *would have been TOTALLY paid off* with this cycle!

I'm convinced that there is a force *out to get me*.......

This "hump" of a day is not about to be easily climbed, if at all......

    Sorry to hear about your laptop, sounds like the system board.
Take a deep breath, think of something good or a peaceful place and be positive.
Always remember when things go wrong or bad in times, it could be worse. This helps me so much.

Hope your day gets better

I wish I were alone right now......

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

For all intents and purposes that's just how I feel.........I truly *envy* those who have NO family.........anyone who tells you just how "wonderful" family is, well, you're gonna have to be an *INCREDIBLE* actor to convince me of that right now! (DON"T ask!)

    So sorry you are going through a bad time. Things happen, been there also.
But I have to say I am glad I have family even with the ups and downs.
Praying things will get better for you.

  Except for my two cats, I live alone. I have no significant other or any kids. Trust me. That's no bowl of cherries either.

I hope things get better for you.

    Unfortunately, I understand all too well. My family has been fractured for a long time and no contact. It's been a blessing given the grief I endured all my life.

I've had ENOUGH :(

Monday, December 15, 2014

My approach to points will change, starting now - I will avoid as many of the point opportunities as I can (it's just NOT. WORTH. THE. STRESS!).............

Skipped the evening event last night - while the day's events went well, the long drive back and forth left my body very stiff and tense - just couldn't relax well enough before having to deal with another outing - to "seal the deal" on my decision, this event involved certain strictness in management that would have potentially made resting-out difficult - NOPE! DON'T need restrictions with the way I was feeling - sooooooooo - chillin' at home was the order of the day..............odd, though, that the partner didn't go to that same event solo, but went off somewhere else with another family member.........curious turn of events, for sure........

Soooooooo - this is another "food for thought" and "turning point" moment - it seems more and more inevitable that I will head toward a solitary existence, even amongst others - and now, I can see clearly that this is, indeed, meant to be........there have been too many signs lately to ignore..........so on I go, another "soloist" among the crowd.......and yes, I *AM* good with it now!

Soooooo - world, go ahead and throw your preconceived ideas and prepackaged, pre-marketed concepts on how to live life at me - I'll throw all that c**p back at you and say 'nuh,huh* - NOT FOR ME, THANK YOU! (And that goes DOUBLE for "holidays", or should I say "he*lidays"!)

I WILL stand strong for myself! (Now all I need to do is get my eating habits strengthened!)

Onward with a new *work* week (yep - another sign of how my life is best headed - once again, heading off to work at this point is essentially a *blessing* and *godsend*, even when days are challenging - just to get away from some things *AND PEOPLE*)!

I wish you all a great week, Sparkies!
