This morning

Sunday, March 29, 2015      18 comments

This morning I decided to go out to breakfast. Yes, I have plenty of food in the house, but I decided to go out anyway. Funny, but all the way down the walkway to my car I felt this huge pressing sensation, like I was doing something wrong and N... Read more

On a treadmill

Wednesday, March 25, 2015      24 comments

While my boss is on vacation, HER boss has been badgering us every few minutes. Why isn't this done? What's happening with that? Why? How? When? we're all on eggshells. I've been working like crazy trying to get a little ahead and I can't even k... Read more

Friday night

Friday, March 20, 2015      17 comments

What was that old Simon & Garfield song? "Time it was and what a time it was." It's been a demanding week. I'm still trying to dig out from under a mountain of other people's demands while catching up my work from being sick last week. Helping m... Read more

I had to move files around today, so I'm sore and tired. My boss (who's luckily in Atlanta this week) thinks I should be as strong and capable as anybody younger who's not on a walker. Well, I did get them done but I hurt right now. Meantim... Read more

This was a very emotional week for me. In addition to what I already blogged about, Thursday was the 33rd anniversary of my daughter's passing. I can't stop wondering what she'd look like, what career she'd have, if she had a family, and so on. ... Read more

Don't know how to feel

Thursday, March 05, 2015      25 comments

Tuesday was my birthday. I've worked at my job for thirteen years. My department mates fuss and celebrate for each other's birthdays. Nobody so much as wished me happy birthday. Maybe I'm being childish, but I'm very hurt. They only notice me wh... Read more

Which day is this?

Saturday, February 28, 2015      17 comments

Yesterday the love of my adolescent life passed away. Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. I'm sure Heaven is a much more logical place! Yesterday was also month-end at work,... Read more

Feeling dangerous

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      19 comments

Yesterday I had a near panic attack at work and almost quit my job. The situation I reacted to turned out to be not nearly as bad as I thought, so luckily I kept my head on (sort of) and I'm still employed. I've had a problem with using the... Read more

Saturday sleepies

Saturday, February 21, 2015      19 comments

Long week at work, poor sleep the last few nights. I'm drowsy and unmotivated today. But there's SO much I need to do. Cooking meals seems overwhelming lately. I stay in bed in the morning until I have to run, never mind breakfast. And at night,... Read more

Relighting a dead Spark

Wednesday, February 04, 2015      23 comments

I have had literally no Spark for months. I've even been kicked off of a team I used to lead. I want it back, but I don't know how.... Read more

And Sunday

Sunday, January 25, 2015      17 comments

One of the handiest tools I bought at the restaurant supply store turned out to be one of the ones I initially paid the least attention to. When I was a kid my parents had a small, long spatula (called a burger spatula in the trade) with a ... Read more

Okay, for the record salt-scrubbing does NOT work at cleaning cast iron. I tried to avoid using water at all but ended up having to anyway because I couldn't get all the salt out by dusting. Keep reminding myself -- most decades-old cast iron ha... Read more

I sort of haven't been eating

Saturday, January 24, 2015      24 comments

Well, of course I've been eating, just not properly. I will go a full workday not eating until dinner, and then it's frequently takeout. I who so love the culinary arts that I'll spend extra time in the produce section just looking at the colors... Read more

Apparently I dodged a cannon ball

Thursday, January 22, 2015      16 comments

Due to some revisions and adjustments to state Medicaid payments we got a payment statement of over 1,000 pages, and I was looking at having to hand post all of it. Given that each page is 25 line items, so that would be 25,000 individual posts.... Read more

Monday holiday

Monday, January 19, 2015      14 comments

Another cold wet day, but at least I don't have to go to work today. I did use one of the new pans this morning. I beat eggs in it to make French toast, which I had with some sausages. I'm knitting and resting my still-achy legs. I'm ... Read more
