I am so glad I have a job, and that when the weekend comes I can appreciate that I am working and have a job I like, and that I have the ability to say I am glad it is the weekend.
It is called contentment.
I heard today, that the production manager and the Proofing supervisor are discussing my future in the proofing department, so that may occur in the near future. For the time being, I still get to do Second Proofing (Listening to audio books for errors before publication), and I love listening to audio books. I hear excerpts from a wide gamete of genres including health, politics, social issues, romance, fantasy, biographies, fiction, etc. I am on permanent on staff, and have a regular three day schedule, working 6 hours each of the days. I am content. It thrills me though that the proofing position may open soon. Excited.
Yesterday, I heard back from the gynecologist office that the preliminary biopsy before my pending outpatient surgery indicates benign polyps. That gives me some relief to know that at least before the procedure, where I am sure they will do more biopsies. Scheduled for Feb. 15.
We also heard from the attorney about our pending custody of our grandson, and that we have at least a 75% probability of it happening. Keep praying, especially as we take on this responsibility. We need to get him out of state foster care and back into stable family.
I do have a sinus/upper respiratory infection. It started out New Year's eve with what probably was flu, though I had no fever. Yesterday my coughing got bad and flared up my asthma, and though I was following all my doctor's recommendations and medicine regime, it was not getting better, so now I am on prednisone (for 4 days), and antibiotic. Unfortunately, it makes my skin even drier, and that is rough when I am dealing with eczema, etc. I am also trying to eliminate wheat from my diet as much as possible to see if it will help with my skin. It is clearing up, but I am also on the antibiotic which may also be helping.
Now, I am off to enjoy the weekend. I found a short cut home from work by my favorite library, and I picked up several books I ordered, plus some poetry, and a couple others. I am all set for the cold weekend. A couple of my goals this weekend are to clear off my recumbent exercise bike and get on it! Also to pull out the wii fit and commit to 10 minutes 5 times per week.
Onward and upward. Getting healthy is my job.
