Stress Update

Saturday, July 26, 2014

I'm working 12-hour-plus days (even without J#2), so I haven't had much time to Sparkabout, but know I'm thinking about you all. Thanks for relaxation music, notes, comments. I appreciate it! Still 1 1/2 pounds from goal, so I haven't "lost it" --

Nothing much has changed at the office. I hired Rochelle's heart daughter as our new file clerk (and she won't take any S**t off of anyone!) and she's started her training. Everyone is behind, because two of the staff took their vacation at the same time (wasn't our office manager supposed to deal with that?) and the technology demon struck again. But I went into work for a few hours before J#2 today and got some more stuff done, am hoping to get things squared away as much as it can ever be squared away...

I've got to say that I feel better overall since I decided to retire. 2 1/2 years? Piece of cake. $$? Who needs $$? The plan is to turn J#2 into J#1 -- the difference between Social Security at 62 and at 65 for me is a 20 hpw job at J#2.

Highlight of the week -- a note out of the blue from a former client, thanking me for doing a good job in her case.

Wedding tomorrow -- my son's brother-in-law is getting married (OMG. The Boy is a Married Man with a Brother-in-law!!!). It's been 100 + here, and the wedding is near Santa Cruz, where it should be beautiful.

See -- I'm thinking good thoughts! xoxoxo thanks again, Pals!

    After all those 12 hour days, 20 hours a week will feel like nothing.

    ((((HUGS)))) Uh boy. Glad you have a file clerk with a "take no guff" attitude. So needed sometimes!

Glad you have some future plans that give you peace! That's what it's all about.
