Had breakfast with former boss. He shared with me he has early alzheimers/dementia. What a shock and how sad. He has greatly impacted my life. He is a very positive motivational person who challenged and pushed us to be more than we were. The whole little group of us have gone off and soared. How thankful I am that he was in my life for the short while. He helped encourage and motivate me to soar with the eagles.

He also asked me why...if I'm not happy where I'm working...why I'm not doing something about it. Told him that is my goal in 2012. Guess I'm coming to the stage where I'll be saying "see you later" to people in my life. How fortunate for him to be able to deal with it and let people know and thank others for the impact they have had on his life. What a neat man he is. I am thankful for his impact in my life.

Up and ready to exercise on the weekend. Normally I don't but the Winter Challenge has me up and ready to go.

    Glad that you were able to reconnect with such a special person. Treasure the moment but make sure you find a few more.

    That is beautiful that you got to spend a special visit with your former boss. It is hard to move forward, and leave a comfort zone. But, as you said "he gave you wings to fly like an eagle." I hope for you, that you may find the happiness and strength in 2012 to find the job that fits you. The best part of moving on is that we can always carry the memories of those who have impacted our lives and meet new friends whom we can learn and grow with. The beauty of life. It reminds me of a song we use to sing when we were younger. "Make new friends and keep the old. One is silver and the other gold." Spread your wings and fly!

Off to meet my old boss for breakfast this AM. I've been struggling the last couple of years working for the new guy. Don't want to whine and complain yet I really respected this boss and want his advice. He called me. Guess he knows I've been struggling.

Off to make it a great day!

Fantastic Friday

Friday, December 02, 2011

Off to make it a great day! Debbie Downer has really been up and positive. She hasn't been moody, Yet I keep waiting for her to stab me in the back.

Taking Mom shopping tonight after work. Need to get baby gift for shower after church on Sunday and it will let her shop at Hallmark and Elder Beerman. She is just like a kid. She gets these coupons in the mail and thinks she has to use them. So I will try to make it a relaxing time for both of us. Hopefully she brings her money so I don't end up paying for all of it. She's good at that. Then she can also look to see if she finds anything for our trip....18 days away to fun and sun with daughter for Christmas.

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, December 01, 2011

Getting ready to start Winter Spark Challenge. The challenges seem to keep me focued and I see weight loss,

Work is different with Debbie Downer co-worker but she seems OK...just changes. Has changed the environment. She's now hourly and never know what days she'll be there. Supposed to be M T Th but she can float a day if she has babysitter issues or baby is sick or whatever. Life always has changes. I know she misses her office and what she did. But we'll see what happens down the road.

Off to make it a great day!

Off to make it a great day! Planning to take Mom to Curves after work today and tomorrow.

Got our first snow that stayed on the ground. Just a total dusting. Not ready for the cold stuff.
