Well we've made it to Wednesday! Packed up office yesterday. Boss and I moved out 12 filing cabinets and my desk. He moved them to location we are merging with. Packed up a lot of the other things in my office that I will carry. Hubby will help me pack up computer and relocate it tonight Feeling ambivalent about the move. Change is always a little stressful. Been several months by myself and now back in with 2 other ladies. I worked with one of them and we get along fine but hear the other one is moody and up and adjustment time again. My life seems like it's been in alot of turbulence and change since February when my old boss "retired", We went from an office of 6 down to 2 down to 1 and now back to 3. New job position which not sure how the other girls will react to it as I won't be able to help them as they sometimes think I'm their assistant because I like to see things run smoothly. Will move into Marketing Manager/Business Manager...should be interesting. When my boss asks me "Are you excited about the change?" I am cautious. Know I have to go through adjustments and find my nitch..."again". Although I think I'm tired of being my myself. Have just gotten lethargic by myself and I don't like being that way. A lot of exciting things ahead. Just taking one step at a time.

Finished self defense class last night and I didn't hurt myself...that I know of. It was RAD training. A co-worker got me involved in it. Last night we geared up and pretented to walk down a street and two guys grabbed us and we had to get out of it. There were two other scenerios we had to go through also. felt like you were in that situation and the emotions flooded over you. Didn't like the feeling although I made it through ok and did OK. We all got to see our video of what we did. Another experience...

Ready to finish packing up the office today and ready my head for the new adventure ahead of me! emoticon

    Change can be very stressful, so I admire your attitude of seeing it as an adventure.

Tuesday Morning

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Well...we've made it to Tuesday morning. Went to a meeting last night after taking mom to exercise. She only made it once around but it has been two weeks. Daughter is settling in to her new place and loving it.

Packing up things at work. Will move Thursday now as one of the girls is off so might as well be there. Am moving with ambivalence...not sure what it will be like. I will adjust and think I will enjoy having more people around me again...but with people there are adjustments and moods to deal with.

Final Self Defense class tonight. Should be interesting.

Off to the day! emoticon

    Good luck with the move and I am sure you will find a way to adjust to the new situation. Yes there will be more people with moods etc. but just try not to get pulled into any of that. Be good to yourself. Good luck on your self defense class. Thinking of you emoticon emoticonLynne

    Congratulations on surviving all "craziness." As far as your work goes, it is a pain not being able to just even get away from work for a bit, and as for the making of lunches you will learn like you have everything else. Don't worry emoticon I have no fear of that just be good to yourself. You are in my thoughts and prayers. emoticon emoticonLynne

    Congrats on survival. I remember well those days of eating lunch at home; maybe throwing a load of clothes in or turning the air conditioning on so it wouldn't have been on all day. Or even starting the evening meal in the crock pot. But those days, like yours are past. Just like life==changes. You will grow and learn what is portable. A NEW CHALLENGE, OH HOORAY.....!!!!!!?????

Sunday Evening

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Well, we survived the garage sale. Didn't get rid of all the big stuff but some..and a lady stopped by this afternoon and wanted the rolltop desk. So one less big item left. My Best friend and her mom left to go home...about 10 hours away. We had the best time together. Her mom is so much fun and 81 years old. She can out work me any day. She has the best attitude and never complains. Oh to grow old like that. She is constantly learning and figuring out how to do things. She is such a blessing to me. It feels like high school days funny to feel like you are reliving those days at 53! These times are so precious and we never know how many more we will get.

Now back to work and normal routine for awhile. Packing up my office to relocate 4 miles away. Been kinda nice to be alone and kinda long for co-workers again. Going from 5 to 1 has been quite a change.

35th class reunion coming up Oct 8 so I will be making a 10 hour treck "Home". Computers have helped us reunite a lot of us hopefully we will have a nice turnout for this reunion. I am looking forward to it and to seeing my brother and his family and my only living aunt and uncle. It will be good to see them.

Took a nice drive with hubby today. Enjoyed the sunshine and time together after the busy couple of weeks we have had.

Best get ready for tomorrow....

    Sounds like you have had a busy but fun weekend, enjoying your friend and her mother. Yes most of these elders can put us to shame most of the time! Glad you at least got out for a nice drive, just to get out for a while, sometimes rejuvenates us. Take care and I hope you have a great time at your reunion. Hugs Lynne

We've made it to Friday! Garage sale going well. Not getting rid of big furniture yet but will lower prices and see how it goes. Sold lots of sheets, towels kitchen stuff though.

We girls went to bed around 9:30 and that has helped me feel better this week. Think with coming back Sunday night from Texas and jumping into the garage sale and working really wore me out.

My time with best friend and mom is almost over. They have been awesome. What a treasure to have such good friends. I feel like I'm in high school again. We laugh, cut up and have such a good time together. We just enjoy each other's company. What fun memories we are making.

Mum festival starts tonight. Will take them to the car show...just to walk around and see things going on. A fun evening ahead.

Thanks for everyone's support. I appreciate it and it keeps me moving forward.
