This morning I decided to go out to breakfast. Yes, I have plenty of food in the house, but I decided to go out anyway. Funny, but all the way down the walkway to my car I felt this huge pressing sensation, like I was doing something wrong and N... Read more
On a treadmill
While my boss is on vacation, HER boss has been badgering us every few minutes. Why isn't this done? What's happening with that? Why? How? When? we're all on eggshells. I've been working like crazy trying to get a little ahead and I can't even k... Read more
What was that old Simon & Garfield song? "Time it was and what a time it was." It's been a demanding week. I'm still trying to dig out from under a mountain of other people's demands while catching up my work from being sick last week. Helping m... Read more
I had to move files around today, so I'm sore and tired. My boss (who's luckily in Atlanta this week) thinks I should be as strong and capable as anybody younger who's not on a walker. Well, I did get them done but I hurt right now.

This was a very emotional week for me. In addition to what I already blogged about, Thursday was the 33rd anniversary of my daughter's passing. I can't stop wondering what she'd look like, what career she'd have, if she had a family, and so on.

Don't know how to feel
Tuesday was my birthday. I've worked at my job for thirteen years. My department mates fuss and celebrate for each other's birthdays. Nobody so much as wished me happy birthday. Maybe I'm being childish, but I'm very hurt. They only notice me wh... Read more
Which day is this?
Yesterday the love of my adolescent life passed away. Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. I'm sure Heaven is a much more logical place!
Yesterday was also month-end at work,... Read more
Yesterday I had a near panic attack at work and almost quit my job. The situation I reacted to turned out to be not nearly as bad as I thought, so luckily I kept my head on (sort of) and I'm still employed.
I've had a problem with using the... Read more
Long week at work, poor sleep the last few nights. I'm drowsy and unmotivated today. But there's SO much I need to do. Cooking meals seems overwhelming lately. I stay in bed in the morning until I have to run, never mind breakfast. And at night,... Read more
Relighting a dead Spark
I have had literally no Spark for months. I've even been kicked off of a team I used to lead. I want it back, but I don't know how.... Read more
One of the handiest tools I bought at the restaurant supply store turned out to be one of the ones I initially paid the least attention to.
When I was a kid my parents had a small, long spatula (called a burger spatula in the trade) with a ... Read more
Okay, for the record salt-scrubbing does NOT work at cleaning cast iron. I tried to avoid using water at all but ended up having to anyway because I couldn't get all the salt out by dusting. Keep reminding myself -- most decades-old cast iron ha... Read more
I sort of haven't been eating
Well, of course I've been eating, just not properly. I will go a full workday not eating until dinner, and then it's frequently takeout. I who so love the culinary arts that I'll spend extra time in the produce section just looking at the colors... Read more
Apparently I dodged a cannon ball
Due to some revisions and adjustments to state Medicaid payments we got a payment statement of over 1,000 pages, and I was looking at having to hand post all of it. Given that each page is 25 line items, so that would be 25,000 individual posts.... Read more
Another cold wet day, but at least I don't have to go to work today.
I did use one of the new pans this morning. I beat eggs in it to make French toast, which I had with some sausages.
I'm knitting and resting my still-achy legs. I'm ... Read more
