Working it Out

  • My husband is home, he is tired and has a bunch of new meds and doctors appointments.
  • I saw a piece of paper on the copy machine yesterday that should not have been there.  It is a new ORG chart that shows my co-worker becoming my new boss at the end of summer.
  • My blood pressure for the last two nights has been 165/110.
  • I have that overwhelmed feeling that comes on after a crises is over.
  • I have been practicing procrastination as if a prize lay at the next level.
  • WHOA there...I can see that this list could turn into a major woe is me.  Hold on kids (self therapy) let me go to back to the top.

  • My husband is much better, he's home and has some new meds and doctors that may be able to help prevent this again.
  • My co-worker will be my new boss?  He is younger than my daughter yes, but I like him very much and he is smart smart smart!  We get along well and I believe he is qualified for the position.
  • There are plenty of blood pressure medicines out there and plenty of doctors to prescribe them.  I need to find a doctor (thank you God for health insurance).  I also need to actually make the appointment and GO .
  • It is natural and not at all an "addict/alcoholic" thing to feel overwhelmed after a crisis.  Jeez it's great to be like a normal person.
  • Procrastination is more of a habit than a defect.
  • whew.........going to shower, pray and work now.
  • goodbye.

All in favor: "AYE!!!!"


Over the years I've been witness to a lot of material that should never have been public in jobs, I seem to have a spirit of finding things out before they happen.

I'm grateful for some, it has presented me with composure where I wouldn't have had it otherwise (dramatic/emotional blah!)

Now I just consider it a gift from God to get 'the committee' settled down before the event.

Glad you like your new boss-to-be, that helps a lot!

Glad too that hubby is home and on the mend!

I love how you turned a gripe list into gratitude. Thanks for that today :)Time to take care of Pammie now, K? Maybe take a little time to float in the pool or strum the guitar? This is your personal (almost) nurse speaking!

Thanks Pam for turning the negatives into positives. Take care of yourself as there is so much stress after a medical crisis. I know that you know what to do.
