It’s amazing how doing something once makes it a tradition. Although this time internet research was done and yet we ended up back at the same place. Because you know, it’s tradition now. It’s one of those Continue reading
It’s a gray cold windy day which would usually make me a titch cranky but not today.
Today I am grateful for a health system, that despite huge issues, can deliver timely care to Continue reading
I’m not being much of a math person but I do remember the various “denominators” from doing fractions.
I’m sad to report that yesterday I sunk to become part of the lowest Continue reading
Did you notice that no one can BS their way through anything anymore? Someone pulls out the phone and Wikipedia and Google sort out the details. So why do we trust them?
I have a friend (a regular blog reader) who dislikes Continue reading
This post started out a lot differently than it is going to end.
On Wednesday, or Tuesday perhaps as holidays distort the days of the week, I awoke to a Continue reading
I had a pot luck party last night but there was a twist. Along with the usual food item each attendee also brought along something else. The concept was that it would sort of a be like a hostess gift but then it ended up more like the crazy Christmas gift stealing. The friend who didn’t bring a gift went home with 2 but it will all even out in the long term.
I still ended up the happy recipient of several new Continue reading
4 hugs and 10 minutes of hurried conversation later my friend and I Continue reading
I’ve spent many years on the “front line” of a trauma hospital providing excellent quality care. It’s extremely rewarding but it’s also very demanding in many ways. *
Today I went to a Continue reading
The title makes it sound like I’ve started a pregnancy blog. Heaven forbid at my age! I’m counting down rather than up so it’s an update on my retirement calendar. Although it may actually be 34 weeks and not 32 but more info is required before the initial decision maybe be changed.
Here is the two part why. Ron believes he read somewhere that the best date is the end of your birthday month. On my list of things to do in June is contact the retirement section of human resources and get the low down. The other aspect of the date is that a certain someone in my life will be in Vegas at the King Memorial Soccer tournament. Bad luck that the Friday after my 60th birthday happens to be that weekend. SO if I want my man around for my ultimate TGIF I may have to delay it a week. So then what is two weeks.
I did learn a few things this last two weeks that I have been on holidays. In no particular order and because I love lists.
- I will miss the people but I won’t miss the grind of daily work or getting lunches organized and up on time.
- I will be busy; my days won’t be boring or empty of things to do
- I will need some structure so I don’t fritter away time
- I will need to establish a sleep/wake up routine so I don’t become a total night owl
- I need at least 2 days per week where I don’t run to the city.
The things I’m so looking forward to, like gran time and creative time, will be done without sacrificing other things. I’m hoping for more friend time and more me time.
The pictures of this post have no bearing on the words. Just some shots that filled my heart with joy today so felt like sharing them.
Thanks for stopping in to read. It’s always nice to connect.
Ps – recognize the crocuses now??
You can’t make this kind of shit up and it was crap. All over the window sill and even in the dining room.
The morning dawned like usual and while upstairs I had no concept my day was about to unravel somewhere Continue reading
