Blog Challenge - Day 17

Monday, December 23, 2013

Looks like this is going into 2014, LOL!

Credit where credit is due (DogLady13's blog post):

I know that DOGLADY13 has been super busy. I hope that she finds time for a super holiday!


3 Week Blog-A-Day Challenge

17. One word that best describes me. Elaborate.

Gads. This is a family-friendly blog, so I won't use the first word that comes to mind.


"Driven" might be a better alternative. I tend to become pretty focused and "heads-down" when I'm working on a project or goal. Granted, I tend to procrastinate, so getting the effort underway takes some doing, but once it's underway... clear the tracks, I'm coming through!

(It seems we are lacking a train icon...)

In other news:

I passed my PEM exam; woohoo! I'm very happy to have that behind me. Looks like it's time to order new business cards to show off the initials!

My mom was in the hospital over the weekend. Details are still a bit sketchy; she fell some time ago (it's a frightening trend) and hurt something in her neck/shoulder/arm area. She has seen the Dr., who ordered an MRI, and it was scheduled way out in the future due to her need to be anesthetized (she's claustrophobic). On Saturday, she could not bear the pain any longer and took herself to the hospital. She got the MRI while there, as well as some pain meds and steroids. Hopefully we'll know more soon, early diagnosis is Carpal Tunnel.

Work is busy, my contract is extended to end of January. The client is losing resources - people quitting - left and right, which might translate into additional work for me. That's another 'wait and see' activity.

No big plans for the holiday. The parades are finished, we exchanged gifts with the bowling team and now it's time to just enjoy. I rather like the way we do holidays.


I'll be here this week, reading your updates and blogs. Be sure to have a lovely holiday, no matter how you choose to spend it! ~ Trish

    I'm kind of driven too when I am doing something important to me.

    Congratulations on passing the exam! Of course I knew you would.

    I am so sorry to hear about your mom. My dad is in similar circumstances. It worries me but he does what he pleases.

    I cooked all day. Three chinchillas had surgery yesterday so we will have a quiet Christmas taking care of them.
