Psyched!

Friday, March 26, 2010

Yesterday was a better day but I spent a lot of time finishing up loose ends from the day before.

I am psyched! I have had fibro all week and I really didn't want to go to my Master's swim class last nite. DH even said he thought I should stay home. But I went and had a ball. I worked hard on my backstroke and came home feeling much better. I still feel great this am!

Work Woes

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I have had a rough week at work. I'm not complaining (this time! lol) just stating a fact. I had a backlog when I started the week on Monday, my supervisor decided to have me start training my replacement this week, we had an unexpected new employee that I needed to train starting Tuesday, my vaccine refrigerator stopped working Tuesday and I had to transfer all my vaccines to 3 different refrigerators, a shipment of vaccines was left out on my desk without ice by a shipping clerk, my yearly conference (which was going to be in Nashville) scheduled for April was cancelled due to financial constraints, and I had administer and read the PPD tests to all our physicians this week. I am tired and cranky. Can't wait for the weekend. (tomorrow for me!) I sure hope we can make it to the cabin this weekend.

Thanks for listening to me vent. I am hoping that by writing this I can start the day off today with a clear mind and have a better day. Wish me luck.

Spring Snow

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

The snow is lying heavily on the trees and bushes. It is glistening in the dawn. We got about 6 or 8 inches and it is just gorgeous! I couldn't resist going outside and taking a few pictures (taken in my bathrobe at 5 am from our back patio!).

Back to Work

Monday, March 22, 2010

I had the usual first day back at work after vacation...lots of fires to put out and tasks to catch up on. I start orienting my replacement tomorrow. My job is pretty specialized and detailed so I get to begin orientation of my replacement 8 months before I retire. The woman who has been my back up will remain my backup but she had a really hard time doing everything the week I was gone so my supervisor is going to have someone else orient as my permanent replacement.

The time is going faster than I thought it would but I am definitely ready.

    Wow 8 months of training. That means you are very hard to replace. Maybe you can just stay on as the back up and have a little part time job. In either case, I know the time will fly.

    Hi there, it must seem strange being able to count down the days. I agree with what LouAnne said about how work is always piled around and strange after you've been gone. I think that makes the time fly as well. We have the rest of the week left for our spring break, but it has went really fast too. I bet if we researched this, we would find that someone has studied it and given it a name.
i hope that you find some level of enjoyment at being back. Take care, Sylvia

    WooHoo, 8 months and counting.........Then you'll be at the cabin all the time....I know that you can't wait, but the time will fly by. Good luck on training your replacement. That's not always easy but you'll handle it just fine.

    Going back to work after vacation is usually filled with all those things that you do that no one else could do. It often makes everyone realize how much you do. Not much more time and you will be a lady of leisure and more busy than you could imagine! I don't know how I worked and got all the other things done. I do know I really enjoy having some time for myself.

    I knew the time would fly by. It will fly even faster with warm weather...and as much as I don't want to see warm weather gone, for you I do so you can get OUTTA there! LOL

Home Again Home Again

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Had a great weekend despite not being able to go to the cabin. We rested on Friday. On Saturday we went to the gym in the am and I walk / jogged a 17 min mile -- a PR. I actually jogged the whole circuit of the indoor track (1/11 th of a mile) 2 times and my oldest DGD ran the circuit in 29 secs several times.

emoticon emoticon

Then we worked on the weight machines for 1/2 an hour.

emoticon

In the afternoon the 3 of us swam for an hour.

emoticon

We spent the evening washing clothes and packing for the return home.

emoticon

What a wonderful week. I'm sorry its over but we all have to go back to our lives.

PS I lost another pound! I guess it was all the exercise. AND we ate all SP recipes!

    I am so glad you had such a wonderful week. I think your DGDs were probably amazed at all the things you could do with them. And I am sure they enjoyed themselves tremendously because grandma "played" with them.
