A Sudden Realization

that I haven’t written in over two years. Last week it hit me, and tried (and succeeded!) in restoring my WordPress account. Apparently, I had my old cell phone linked and couldn’t access it. Anyway, it’s all worked out now.

I’m not here to apologize for not writing, as if anyone really reads this. People close to me will understand why and those who aren’t well, it’s fine if you don’t.

Let’s do a little recap, shall we? (might need a tissue or two) Continue reading “A Sudden Realization”

May the 4th be with you…

Is what people keep saying today, but I’m not a Star Wars fan – however it was such a great day.

So since March…

My life has been flipped upside down. I’m not as happy as I once was, no matter what I try to do. My pain from the accident is considered chronic now and the doctors don’t know what the next steps are, which leads me into thinking that I need a new doctor + team. I’ve been loaded up on so many medications these last six months that it’s amazing I’m still me but in the end, I just want the pain to go away.

Good things has happened: Continue reading “So since March…”

The Quiet One

I have gone running only one time this week, which according to C25K during my first week I should be running 3 days, a day apart. Due to the weather the last few days (thunderstormy/lightning/scattered tornado watches) I’ve been cooped up inside after work. Today would be a good day only it is in the mid 80’s and my body isn’t reacting to the high humidity levels that well. Continue reading “The Quiet One”

A Change is On The Rise

These last few, ok several weeks of shopping at Wal-mart on the weekends have ruined my good eating habits and replaced them with junk. All. Junk. I did eat some feta/spinach pizza for dinner a little bit ago but now snacking on some kettle corn popcorn while Continue reading “A Change is On The Rise”

Good afternoon 2 January 2012!

The holidays were very nice – could have lived w/o the drama at work but I suppose that’s expected. We set up our tree rather late in the year, discovered it in storage that it was missing a leg on the stand, so we set it up, leaning into the corner beside the front door. Continue reading “Good afternoon 2 January 2012!”

Too much caffeine

There is a such thing as too much caffeine. I proved it – well, now. I can’t keep my thoughts in order and I’m too buzzed at the moment to really complete a single task.

Buzzed as in, too hyper. Nothing else. 🙂 Continue reading “Too much caffeine”

Short, but a good day

The first day of my new job was shortened due to the printers running out of toner – so they were unable to print off individual copies of the enormous Employee Handbook to everyone, nearly twenty people. Instead, the trainer read off key points of the master copy. I wrote down some things that I should try to remember, including the awesome perks: two weeks of paid vacation after 90 days. Woot! Continue reading “Short, but a good day”

Autumn is upon us, in full swing. The leaves have fallen (mostly the top half of the trees surrounding our apartment complex) but that still counts, right? The temps outside have fallen as well, so much that I get hit with a cold burst once I leave work and head out into the abyss of cars and people. Continue reading “Brr!”

Fresh Meat!

….you thought this post was going to be about beef or lamb, eh? Well, it’s not. Instead it is about a possible new job within my grasp.. I just have to visit the home office of the hiring agency and complete a couple of tests and then the interview. Oh man, I hope I get it. They pay really well, despite it being a warehouse position. It’ll be my first job in a warehouse setting but by Clint’s thoughts on it, as he works for the same company, I don’t think I have much to worry about. I’ll keep everyone posted.
