Meeting with friends tonight at a paint your own pottery place. Something different than a bar/restaurant that we usually meet at once a month. It will be good seeing them after not seeing anyone for eleven days. I miss the lunch bunch. We alway... Read more

This whole firing, excuse me resign/retire thing has me jammed up. I have friends meeting with the Dean and now I am working on an entire set of questions, responding to them. I am very grateful that they are willing to do this. I will be m... Read more
It's a change

But I am adapting. The night before or the morning of each day I make a list of things that either need to be done (find less expensive insurance) or I want to get done (re-measure feet for new sock technique; hem pants). But mostly I just go wi... Read more

I have now had two calls from faculty, out of the blue, wanting to know what the **** is going on. So I tell them a bit from my side, suggest they connect with two of the faculty I have been working with for a number of years and then tell them ... Read more

It is the little things. Last night was the first night that I slept the entire night without waking up once. I woke up before my alarm. It was a little astonishing. I am looking forward to more "aha" moments as the days go by. Knowing I n... Read more

I knew when I walked into the room this morning I was to be fired and everything was just for show. The really funny thing was that they had a member of the university threat assessment team there. I guess they assumed I was going to go ballisti... Read more

I believe that tomorrow morning I am to be fired. I am to "start my work day at 8:00am" at a different building on campus than the one I work in. The one I am to report to is where HR is located. This happened to another person about a year ago.... Read more

For real. I have to figure out how to leave this job. I have a bully for a supervisor (watched her bully four other people out of the building) and I am tired of standing up to her. It has taken a toll on my attitude and my health. DB wants... Read more

Even though I started a bunch of new knitting projects when I was home ill 30 days ago, those projects and others are moving along. Three projects were finished in the last 4 days and other projects are much closer to being completed. One thing ... Read more

A week ago I was ill and stayed home for two days. In that time four hats and a pair of fingerless gloves were started. Three out of the five projects were using "left-overs" from other projects, one was from a project that had the yarn and patt... Read more

...when walking one day DB and I found a smouldering tree beside a walking path. We called the fire department and led them to the tree as there was no way to get a truck close. A few weeks ago we were again on the same trail to check on "our tr... Read more

From knitted projects. I have started immediately casting on something with the rest of the yarns that are left after completing a project. Many times there is only enough for a hat but then I do not need to find a place to store 1/2 a skein. ... Read more

When we last went to the care facility that my parents were at, for less than a year, we did not have the same good experience we had the first time. This time there was only one person who came. A church singing group scheduled after we did so... Read more
