It's Nice to Get Noticed

Monday, February 18, 2013

I had a co-worker who hadn't seen me since I left (almost 3 weeks ago) comment that I looked like I had lost a lot of weight since then. Someone else commented as well. THAT felt great. I said it's probably due to the stress being gone now. The bad stress anyway. I can handle the stress of learning a new job and all that goes with it.

I let go over the weekend and relaxed. It was nice to just hang out and after housework/laundry, do nothing. I feel refreshed and ready for the week ahead which is going to be pretty busy and full.

We have a snow/ice storm coming in on Wed. night and all day Thursday. I've made up my mind to take the bus to the old office building in the morning with my laptop and stay there until I have the 6pm meet the docs dinner in the conference room there. Then, if the weather permits, hubby will pick me up at 8 in his 4WD truck and we go to the lecture at WashU. If it's cancelled or too icy, I'll take the bus home and have him pick me up at the corner a few blocks down. That way I don't have to worry about driving in the ice/snow/muck. It's raining and blowing now, had a high of 55 today but tonight the temps are bottoming out. Good night to stay inside and piddle around.

I'm finding that the clothes I have are getting way too big now. I waited too long to see if they fit and now they swim on me. That's cool. Way cool. The shirt I wore today I never was able to wear because the buttons almost popped off from my top end. Today, it floated on me with about 6" to spare. The jeans I wore on Friday were falling off of me and the pant legs drug the ground. Goodwill time again.
