The surgery went as well as can be expected. I developed pneumonia, an infection that led to a second operation and finally got out of the hospital 2 weeks later. Apparently I had broken ribs which led to the pneumonia - my guess was during po... Read more

I'm going to have to make this short, I'm at work. I've had a ton of stuff going on but am working back to normal. I should have about 6 more weeks of insanity and then have my life back to some semblance of "normal." We moved, out of a h... Read more

While waiting for the layoffs to hit at my hospital, my husband got laid off. The tornadoes that went through on Friday hit his workplace and destroyed everything. They most likely won't return. Even if they do, it will be months. He w... Read more

I've been doing well on my keep on track commitment. Working on using my new nutribullet blender to whiz up the veggies and fruits I would otherwise have an issue digesting. Every morning I drink a mix of greens (all kinds now), protein powder... Read more

A roller coaster month. Finished my training and certification stuff for work. Waiting on the official "go" word. It's getting frustrating knowing each week that passes means I'm that much more behind. I finally went to see my primary ... Read more

Rest is Good

We've spent the weekend basically napping. Both of us are worn down to nubs and it tells. A week of not much/good sleep has taken its toll. Later on is grocery shopping and getting ready for work. My classes have gone well. I've made 100 on... Read more
It's Nice to Get Noticed

I had a co-worker who hadn't seen me since I left (almost 3 weeks ago) comment that I looked like I had lost a lot of weight since then. Someone else commented as well. THAT felt great. I said it's probably due to the stress being gone now. ... Read more

Finished my move-in yesterday. The furniture was in storage for probably 10 years and man was it dusty and nasty. So, my office mate and I spent a couple of hours cleaning and cleaning and then scrubbing the daylights out of all the furniture ... Read more

Today was the last day at my old job. I had a couple of celebrations yesterday that were very nice. They had a huge sheet cake with all the managers before lunch and I avoided it. Passed out slice, but declined for me. We went out to lunch a... Read more
When Life Changes
Saturday, January 12, 2013      4 comments

I thought it was my imagination, but now, I know it's not. For the past 3-4 months I've been so unhappy with my job situation it seemed my life slowed down to nothing. No concrete goals, no drive, no motivation. When I got the job offer this ... Read more
