Had a great weekend and we have HOT WATER now. DH installed a new water heater and my first shower felt so wonderful. Amazing how a couple days w/o something and you appreciate it so much. Went on a road rally Sunday afternoon and walked through Ohio Caverns It was a lot of fun. DH and I are stepping out into a new season of our life. Stepping out of our comfort zone and meeting new people and having fun. Son and daughter in law heading to Dr this AM. They are in the IVF process and praying this will work so they can have a much longed for little one in their lives. Off to a great week! emoticon

Well we made it through the week. Yesterday our difficult co-worker was gone and the day ran smoothly. Had an epiphany this AM. Maybe I need to take her out to lunch and talk with her.....we'll see how it goes today if she is back. Got back to Curves twice this week. Still no water heater but hubby is hoping to get it today and get it installed. Makes you appreciate hot water that I usually take for granted. Life is good. God continues to bless me more and more each day. Too blessed to complain so says my Aunt. A good comment to make!

Off to make it a GREAT DAY! emoticon

    It is way to easy for us to take things for granted. Most of the time we don't appreciate things until we no longer have them.
Good luck with your co-worker. Hope she goes to lunch with you and that it makes a difference. ENJOY!!

  The best way to unerve a person is to kill them with kindness. It will blow their mind. Your idea of taking the difficult co-worker out to lunch is a good one. Best wishes.

Had a great day yesterday. Weather was gorgeous and I got to get out of the office some. Covered lunch for the other office and ran to get them supplies. Weather was so pretty and sunny out. Made it so nice to be out in. Co-worker shared with boss what our other co-worker is like when he's not around. Wonder what that will do...guess she's in my life to make me grow. Been OK the last couple of days. Sometimes I let her rude comments or the way she treats us get to me but am trying to rise above it and not let her ruin my day. If she chooses to be that way I don't have to become just like it to her or angry and stew about it. Let it roll off. Other times she can be nice and sweet. Go figure! I am a people pleaser and like everyone to get along and everyone to like me. Finding out there are people who aren't nice to others and everyone may not like me and that's OK. I am still responsible for my actions and how I treat others back. Fortunately I have another co-worker who sees how she treats me/us and it's not just in my head. Don't know what boss will do or can do. He doesn't see it and she is his pet project so she is usually treated with just have to deal with it and go on. I am still responsible to be respectful and treating her right. Maybe she's jealous...I'm not sure what of...I'm not taking her job. She is good at what she does. My job is different. Oh well a learning and growing process.

Went home after lunch with a splitting headache. Eased up and then we discovered the water heater was leaking. Fortunately hubby discovered it early as it was spewing water and he heard the sound. Spent the evening cleaning up water. So no hot water this AM except from what we heat up on the stove/microwave. I am so thankful. It could have been finding our basement flooded or a soggy mess. It got some of the carpet wet but very minimal. So very thankful! Off to start a great day!

    So glad you didn't have any damage just a little wet carpet. Thank God for his blessings. Hope your headache is a think of the past and you got a new hot water heater. Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Off to early staff meeting this AM. Had dinner at mom's last night. Starting to see big changes in her and it's sad to see. She had major issues getting a meal on the table...couldn't get it to the table. Sad to see the changes in her. Some of it is winter. She needs to get out more and exercise but I've been busy and she thinks she's sick all the time. Wonder if she is eating properly or enough. She needs interaction with people and has opportunities but doesn't take them. Thinks people don't like her etc. Just excuses. Think she's so afraid to get outside her comfort zone without us there with it goes. Hubby caught my cold and had a fever when we got home. Well guess we take one day at a time and we move forward.
