Hi Melissa. Good to hear from you. I'm doing ok. I broke my foot on August 2nd and was off work and in a cast for the first 4 weeks. Went back to work on the 29th of August in a boot once the cast came off. I am still in a boot but am supposed to start weaning out of it and into a regular shoe starting next week. Starting Monday, I am to wear a shoe for 1 hour on days 1 and 2, two hours on days 3 and 4 and so on, increasing my time in a shoe by an hour every 2 days for 14 days and be totally in a shoe on day 15. Not too sure how that's going to work as I can't even get a sock on. I've been wearing a fuzzy, over-sized sock since it happened. It is healing but is far from 100%. Muscles are still sore and still have some bruising. But, it is a lot better than it was 9 weeks ago. Because of all this, I have not been able to go to the gym and I lost my KOPS status.
I haven't decided about ARD yet. Will wait to see how much vacation time I have.
How have you been?

Hi Melissa. I remember meeting you last year at SRD. Sadly I won't be able to go this year as there are already 2 coworkers off. It will be the first one that I'll have to miss since joining TOPS. I'm pretty bumbed about it but not much I can do.
I am laid up right now as I had surgery on my foot for a bone spur and plantar fascitiis. I had the surgery on Monday so I'll be off work until at least the 13th. I go back to the doc on the 12th and I should be in a boot then and be on my two feet again.
Congrats on being a division winner and losing 80 pounds. That's a real accomplishment that you should be proud of. How much more to go to goal? I have confidence that you will graduate to KOPS this year.

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL
Libra is not a "fat" sign as it puts her out of balance. Staying slim and fit is natural for you. When Libra over eats it is because she is out of balance in her emotional life. She needs to talk about her feelings to someone. Yoga and dance can be wonderful ways to get exercise and relieve stress.
Remember, no decision is a decision. Make one and stay with it.
In Libra the Sun is tolerant, affectionate, and well balanced. You are a courteous and agreeable person who is considerate of other people's feelings. You have a personal charisma attracting friends. Functioning well when working in harmony with other people, you are an excellent team player. You like being on the winning team.
You get along well with Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Leo.
Your health issue can be your kidney area and skin problems.
You are a "steel fist in a velvet glove" so know you can accomplish anything you set your mind to do. You are an excellent student and can excel in math.
You become unhappy in ugly surroundings. Don't stay in a bad situation as it can make you ill physically. You are frugal and want to get quality for your money that you work hard for.
You prefer working in a pleasant and very orderly atmosphere, with people who don't put undue pressure on you. You like to see your role as that of peacemaker. Peace and tranquility are so important. The least sign of hostility or discord is very upsetting to you. You refrain from speaking your mind if you fear your thoughts would alienate or start an argument. Always ready to compromise or mediate, you need to be careful not to appear wishy-washy or less than reliable.
In many ways, you are dependent upon the approval of others. Libra is the sign of relationships. You think of yourself as half a partnership rather than an individual. Because of this feeling of dependence, you put your mate's needs and desires ahead of your own. You may become confused as to what you want at any particular time, versus what your partner wants. Your partner's goals and ambitions become your goals and ambitions. You are the true helpmate. Because of this attitude, Libra is very stable and dependent in a relationship, even a bad one.
As attached as you are to your partner, you may not really show it much. In your quest for balance and harmony, you rarely have or express strong emotions of any kind. Yours is a very dispassionate demeanor that is detached. You don't invest much passion or feeling in your relationships, loving with your head instead of your heart.
When cast in a supervisory role you may have some difficulties. This is because you weigh each decision before choosing your direction. You can experience problems if you are called on to make frequent snap decisions for the group. You are an excellent go-between, and not as good at being the leader or boss. Unfortunately, such a balanced view of situations sometimes makes decisive action more difficult. You have a hard time making everyday decisions of little or no consequence. On the big issues, you may vacillate indefinitely.
One of your main personality traits is a love of justice. You are insistent on fair play. In this too, you have a very balanced and unbiased way of looking at everything in your world. Accordingly, you are often called on to be mediator in family disputes or in disagreements at work. Your impartial judgment can always see both sides of a matter. You can be very cool and detached, keeping your feelings well under control in pursuit of fairness.
Your love of balance and harmony allows you to appreciate music and the arts. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet closely associated with artistic endeavors. If you don't have talent yourself, you probably to do have an interest and excellent taste in these matters.
Courteous and refined, good manners are important to you. You exhibit them and you expect them. You are especially repelled by vulgarity and coarseness. Tactful, diplomatic, refined and socially successful, you strive to say and do the right thing. It is always so important for you to make the right impression.
