Ending the Week and Beginning the Weekend.

Well, we've not had many cozy autumn days - but warm breezy days.  Our weather has been akin to what it feels like in AZ this time of year.  About a 9 mph breeze and dry warmth, very dry earth, slight coolness at night and so forth.  I'm expecting cacti to pop up at any time here in TN.  Usually by Halloween we have had our first frost and our first...

Through the Woods and Over the River

Well, I called the docs office back 7 times yesterday.  Got through twice.  Left messages both times to the office saying that I was returning the person's call that had called me at work after I left Wednesday.  They never returned the call.  They also have the wrong cell number and have not updated my records after asking me to complete an updated...

Ultra Sound, Restroom Issue, and Evil Spirits in Technology

Well, I had my test yesterday, an ultrasound of my uterus.  And I checked messages this morning at work and I have a call from them asking me to call their office.  :-O  That was quick.  Of course it is 4:46 in the morning right now as I'm typing this and I can't call til 8.   So I will call and see what is up. I hope I do not have to go and have a...

Better and Busier, and Medical Test Today

Well, every day I'm better from the bathroom traumitazation incident.  I had saved the previous posts to draft, but thinking about putting them back b/c it did happen, it is part of working through an embarrassing situation and the anger and humiliation it caused.  And there is nothing for me to be ashamed of.  It's just me working through my feelings....

Dealing with Aftermaths and Setting New Paths

Saw this at a restaurant, called Roosters, that we went to Sunday.  Great place, had wings, the Titans were on in their many TV screens.  Sign was cute.Yesterday was ok.  We had girls prayer time at 9.  We shared, we prayed.  I was able to make *some* progress yesterday.  It was a fairly calm day for a Monday.  No one yelling, only one employee issue...

Closing out the last two posts in an effort to move on. I feel that my traumatizing, humiliating, and embarrassing experience made this a much bigger event for me than the other person.  While it happened and that can't be erased neither can it's aftermaths of loss of respect and trust.  The other party will likewise have no choice but to come to terms...

Weekend Report, Traumatized in the Mens Room, and Respect

I did not have much time yesterday morning and didn't get a blog entry in.  I tried 3 times via blogger mobile to do it from the car.  The typing is tedious and after a few paragraphs each time blogger buckled on me (crashed) and it has no auto save, so I lost it each time.  After 3rd try I gave up.  Saturday was wonderful in that I stayed in my PJ's...

Work Day Bombs and Weekend To Do List

Well, there ya have it.  A picture of my day yesterday.  You come to work, with your heart all about a new day and hoping it will be better, that it will be productive, that your integrity and positiveness will pull you through, and although much of the day is rough on the front lines, you hold your own, make good choices, solid decisions, do what your...
