more winter woes

Monday, January 24, 2011

I just spent about 2 hours shovelling out buried vehicles today at work. Had over a foot of snow (hard packed because it was above freezing) over the roof around the fenders etc had to take and sweep off the front and then dig out the tires (front wheel drives) and even then it took 3 or 4 passes back and forth to make a path. then I had to get the rest of the snow off so I could pull them in, Oh well that's why I get paid the big bucks . (NOT).

More January Blues

Sunday, January 23, 2011

This has been a winter unlike nearly any other, Snow up the ying yang till you want to almost VOMIT at the sight of it, then now its been ABOVE freezing for the last 3 days (Not good TRUST ME) now I have a very sore back right at the where the pelvis joins. Gotta go to work tommorrow or Hitler (I just love my boss- NOT) will have a fit. So much for going to the union (what a joke),
Well if it keeps bothering me I am going to the doctor and getting a note and then I am going to stay away from work for a week or what ever it takes. I could still lose my job tomorrow if it were contracted out so why shouldn't I look after myself FIRST??

    Wow, you're really having a hard time! Living where it gets extremely hot in the summer, I feel exactly about summer as you do about winter, and I always dread it coming. Sometimes just finding one simple thing positive--it can be ANYTHING--helps beat the blues. It sounds silly, but the only thing I could find to like about summer is fruit salad with ingredients that are best in July and August, our hottest month. Eventually I started looking forward to that one thing. Maybe you can find something that's best enjoyed on a cold day? A favorite book that you read only on the coldest days? Seeing the sunrise when it hits the ice and snow in the trees and everything sparkles? Hang in there!

Mid January Blues

Sunday, January 16, 2011

I often wish I had more intelligent things to write about in fact I have had several times where I had meant to commit to memory a profound thought I had had (yes I can still get them at my advanced age of 49) to use HERE only to forget it). It has been snowing practically non stop going on 2 weeks now and even though it might be honest exercise I am getting sick to death of shovelling (not to mention how high the piles are and the fact that I am running out of spots to put the @##$#@~!! stuff). I also dislike the fact that we haven't had much in the way of sunshine yet this month (usually its cold and sunny - which s better than cold AND cloudy) coupled with the fact that its dark when I go to work and the sun is setting less than an hour after I get home. (What did my ancestors do before artificial lighting ??). The only saving grace I can see is that the month is nearly half over and in a couple of months it should be spring. Can't come too soon. At least we don't get a lot of tornadoes and we don't have troubles with snakes and insects as much as some other folks do.


New Year

I would simply like to wish all my sparkfriends a HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS AND SAFE NEW YEAR. May all your hopes and wishes come true.


Halfway holidays

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Well I am about halfway done my holidays in the sense that I still have 3 vacation days that I had to take left so I am dreading going back in some respects as I detest my employer with a passion (actually its more the bosses than anything of course that's true of any employer). Its funny because if I were to tell some of you who I worked for (AND I WON'T SO DON'T ASK!!!!) you would think I was crazy as there are a lot of stereotypes out there. I have accomplished some things as well as failed miserably at others (sound familiar, reader?) but I am grateful to my higher power (Jesus Christ) for helping me along (sorry 13 years in a 12 step program the old habits and ways of doing things die hard) . As I think St Paul once said "in Christ all things are possible " I hope that includes weight loss - I am terrible at that!! In case this is my last one this year (hopefully NOT)-
Have a Happy Safe and Prosperous New Year
