We had a bit of sleet happening yesterday for a brief period, but so far the predicted snow has not made an appearance. YAY
Very busy day at work yesterday. I got lots of steps in covering the old library from one end to the other several times during the day. We had different people coming and going as they were picking up items they had spoken for that we were not moving to the new location. Next week will be just as busy as we wind down everything and clear out the final bits and pieces. I'm still trying to work on the evacuation plans for the new library, while being at the old library. It's a challenge working from maps, but like everything else...it will get done.
I've been having some issues with my left knee. Not sure what is going on with it. It started out about 3 weeks ago feeling like I had pulled a muscle just under the knee cap area. It wasn't really bothering me until last night. Walking doesn't produce any problems, it's bending it that seems to really hurt. I'm going to have to see what the connection is.
okay, I just looked up in my book "Secret language of your body". Ouch, I've got some work to do! This is what it says about possible contributing factors: control, blame, judgment, anger, resentment, frustration, inflexibility. Feeling stuck. Difficulty dealing with a person, issue, or situation from the past. Confusion. Frozen desires and unfulfilled dreams. Unresolved family issues. Difficulty making decisions and keeping commitments. Fear of moving forward. A great need to know what will happen next.
Left knee: Issues with a mother, sister, aunt or significant female in your life. Holding on to saddness, hurt, and loss from the past. Feeling like a victim. Constant criticism. Holding yourself back.
Not that all of these possibile causes are what I'm dealing with, but the ones that resonate with me and my life right now sure make sense. We are moving to a new location, I'm at the old location due to chemical sensitivities until the end of next week. The move began the first week of October (about 3 weeks ago).
Okay...let's break it down.
Control...yep, I am feeling like I have no control (or say) in where my desk will be located in the new place or any part in any decision making that is happening over in the new department. Which leads to some frustration.
Trying to put in place an evacuation plan, working from maps rather than actually being able to be in the new library and walking through the building has created some frustration.
Certain co-workers located at the new library, assuming that I have nothing to do at the old library, there fore it should be no problem to pass off some of their work to me to handle because they are busy at the new location. Issue for me...I have limited internet connections and limited tools to do any of this work with. As well as I am putting in longer hours and dealing with lots of running from one end to the other for phones, messages, deliveries that need to be rerouted and people arriving to pick up things.Oh yeah....guess "victim" is falling in here too! siggghhh.
Hmmm. Fear of moving forward....yep, there's even some of that. I've been over to the new location once for about 2 hours total. A quick tour through the library, many areas I was unable to go into due to "smells". Am I going to be able to work all day there for the first while or will I have to work from home and feel even more like I'm not part of the department?
Thank you guides for the "clue-by-four" on the head. There was a purpose to me purchasing this book, which meant you already fore saw a need for it in my life.
The great thing about this book...it doesn't only give you possible causes, it leads you through how to remedy these issues. So like I say, I have my work cut out for me this weekend.
This is the first part of the remedy:
Stand. Ask yourself:
Am I willing to let go of controlling, blaming, and judging myself and others? Can I give myself permission to move forward with trust, love and certainty?
If the answer is YES, visualize releasing all the fear, blame, and inflexibility. (And it continues from there with steps to do, which I will promptly begin doing as soon as I'm finished here.)
I have been getting lots of steps in at work.
My guides and their willingness to keep bopping me on the head until I get it.
A weekend to clear away these negatives in my life and accept healing from within.
Garry is excited about another day of using positive affirmations and the difference it has made for him at work.
Life really is wonderful, I just have to remember that on a moment by moment basis.*grin*
So far no snow!Woo Hoo.
It's silly Saturday, what better day to get rid of "silliness" in my life and enjoy life free of encumbrances.
Have a wonderful Silly Saturday. Thanks for listening this morning...sometimes by writing things out, I see things more clearly.

This week has been full of busy activities. Today promises to be no different.
Continuing to work on the evacuation plans for the new library and being available at the old library for people that are coming and going doing removals of equipment (shelves, sinks cupboards, ceiling tiles the whole bit).
Weather predictions are calling for snow this weekend. Brrrrr! Mother Nature must not have gotten my email that I didn't need it to be cold outside as I've got my fridge repaired. lol
It's Friday, need I say more.
My fridge is repaired...new motherboard has been installed. Apparently the original was a faulty one from day one! Nice to know.
My hubby put into practice for the 1st time yesterday saying positive affirmations in the mirror when he got up...he was excited to report that he had a fabulous day! Woo Hoo.
No plans for the weekend...other than relaxing and housework.
Now that the fridge is working, I can go for some groceries. I'm in need of veggies and fruit.
A nice warm home, a vehicle that gets me to work safely, a job that I am enjoying doing...yep, life is good.
Have a Fabulous Friday, if you haven't tried doing positive affirmations...give it a whirl...let yourself be amazed at the results.

ARRRHHH...I hit the wrong key on the key board and lost everything...here goes again!
Hump day today, mid way through the work week, Yay. It's been very busy and long days at work. Yesterday was exceedingly long in the fact that time seemed to stand still. We had no computer connections, which meant that the usually work that we would have been doing, wasn't able to be done. So instead we occupied ourselves with helping to move remaining filing cabinets, desks and boxes of stuff that is being given away. I used it as an opportunity to burn some extra calories. YAY.
Weather forecast last night was not so nice. Snow is on its way! Mother Nature...I'm not excited about snow! Couldn't we just have rain instead? Or at least have it only snow on the sides of roads and driveways!
The fridge repair guys are supposed to show up sometime today. No set time, which makes it difficult to say when either Garry or I will have to be at the house. We've asked them to phone us when they are ready to come, hopefully one of us will be able to get away from work to meet them. My poor fridge is really having a hard time keeping a cool temperature. I'm hoping that it is a quick fix.
That the fridge is on warranty.
It's mid way through the work week.
That we still have a couple of days of no snow.
That I have health.
I am learning and growing spiritually.
I belong to a positive team with some very faithful participants.
My family, friends and God...all very important in my life and in no particular order as they are all important.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Yesterday was municipal elections day in Alberta. I have no idea yet who won, as the only results that were shown on tv last night were for Edmonton. Perhaps the smaller cities/towns came on later, but my bed was calling to me and I didn't stay up long enough to watch for further results. Oh well, I'll find out today. It will be interesting to see what "upsets" occured, if any.
I thought I was only going to have 2 more weeks of study group when yesterday rolled around, but I got home from work to a phone message to say that last night's study group had been changed to a workshop and our study group lesson has been postponed. So still two more weeks. The workshop was interesting none the less.
Yesterdays trip over to the new library was good. I managed to go to the phone training and a quick trip to our new department. But not able to spend any time else where. Our department looks much smaller now that we have all the desks etc in there. But I'm sure once we have everything organized and all the boxes unloaded, it won't look so small. We have lots of windows, which will make working in there wonderful.
An opportunity to see my desk in a new location.
Telephone training...hopefully I will remember it all when it comes time to use the phone!
A lovely walk back from the new location yesterday. It's about a 20 minute walk, the sun was shining, the breeze was blowing...a perfect walking day.
Interesting workshop last night.
Fridge repair guys are coming tomorrow. Meanwhile the fridge temperature is flucuating between low and high temperatures. I'll hold off buying groceries that need refrigeration until its fixed.
I'm blessed with another day of life...what can I make of today???
Have a wonderful day, count your blessings.
