Woke up early....
Tuesday, June 04, 2013      1 comments

Sounds like the beginning of a bad pop song from the 60s. But I did wake up early and once I was ready for work did not want to start doing anything at home so I put my pack on and started walking. I got to work at the same time as normal. In... Read more

We have ours done and ready for people to take books. I talked about this earlier but now I can show you! We still have to paint the post but it is there, books are the... Read more
Weavers' meeting

Just got back from the weavers' meeting of the craft guild. It was a smaller group tonight; the final meeting for the year (our year goes August-May). Normally I go; sit and knit; participate in discussions, and that is how it goes. Rarely do ... Read more
Stop lying

A few days ago my status said that I was making decisions for change. One of the decisions is to stop lying on my spark page. According to my weight counselor I am maintaining. According to my scale I am not. Before this weekend I had gained w... Read more

For the last three days the weather people have been predicting storms and more storms. The big one happened last night! The sirens were going off for a long time. We lost power for long enough that the clock on the stove turned off. Neither D... Read more

With grading and all the aftermath of finals, work has been crazy! Faculty forget from semester to semester how to grade to the curve and all the steps that we, as staff, have to go through after they finish the grading to post the grades on the... Read more
Pleasant surprise today

Had a check-in with the doctor regarding my nerve pain--it is subsiding with the drugs but I hate taking drugs. We are staying with it for one more month and then I can see what happens without the drugs. That is all to the good, I think. ... Read more
Yesterday was so good, today had to be also!

And it pretty much was. Nice day, little cold walking across the river at 6:40am. That makes for good time, brisk pace. Mornings are such a great time. The air is clean, people are not yet frazzled by the commute/work. I just really like being... Read more

Today was just a totally fabo day! Great weather, cold this morning but warming up; never enough that I went to a t-shirt but nice enough for long sleeves and a vest. Lots and lots of sun and blue sky! Had a great time this morning with the kni... Read more

Our Dinner/Booze group met tonight for bouillabaisse and champagne based drinks. It was a fun night. The couple that had dessert this time made a souffle with Grand Marnier. Very tasty. It is just a fun group. Talk is always very wide rangin... Read more

I found a new way to do the stairs that causes more work. Walk diagonally, back and forth, up the stairs. Even with just my first floor to fourth floor caused pulling in my legs. Will have to do that more. On the longer stretches I can get 4... Read more

Everyone's Wednesday was my Monday. It was a Monday to end all Mondays! 8am set up for exam. Fortunately the class was a small one, only 14 students, and only 2 hours long. Most exams are 3 or 4 hours long or 8 hour take-homes (we hates those!... Read more
A "Me" Day

I took two sick-leave days for my non-existent colonoscopy (see previous entry) yesterday so after sleeping all day (it felt like) yesterday I am actually feeling almost normal today. Which means that I am at home, I have a list, things will be... Read more

Can we say someone made a mistake?!? I did not need to do the prep for a colonoscopy because the doc wanted me scheduled for an endoscopy for my stomach (which, by the way, got excellent points--much better than in 2009). He apologized all ove... Read more
