Onto the next chapter

Hello! Yesterday was my last day at my job at the local newspaper. I am starting a new job this Saturday, and I’m really excited about it. I really loved the job I just had, but they were bought out by another company. And that led to being told that my job would be eliminatedContinue reading “Onto the next chapter”

Staying put

Hello, hello! As you know, I got a new job and am starting it soon. I have written about how cool is it that I don’t have to move, and I started thinking about all the things I don’t have to do. First, I don’t have to pack. I don’t have to go out andContinue reading “Staying put”

Bit of this, bit of that

Hello! First off, I just wanted to say that my mom told me to tell everyone “HI!” from her. I’m really excited about this new job. I have five days off from my last day at this job and the first day of the new job. I am going to arrange my office in aContinue reading “Bit of this, bit of that”

Unexpected accomplishment

Howdy! It’s been a pretty fun weekend so far with lots of little things — and one big one — going on. I’m going to start off with the smaller stuff and end with the big one. First, I had a lot of fun last night playing a game online with friends. The game, AmongContinue reading “Unexpected accomplishment”

Right steps, slow results

Hello, hello, hello. It’s been such a stressful week. It’s been good stress mixed with bad stress, but, unfortunately, there has been more bad stress. A couple people were laid off at work. And guess who gets to do their jobs? The copy desk. And guess who is also getting laid off sometime soon? TheContinue reading “Right steps, slow results”

It’s kind of a blah day

Hello, hello. I woke up today feeling kind of blah. It’s probably a combination of fatigue and the fact that it’s my Monday. I got bad news about work last night. I can’t go into too much detail, but someone got laid off, and that is going to result in more work for me andContinue reading “It’s kind of a blah day”

What an unusual 24 hours

Howdy, folks. Hope everyone is doing OK today. I am doing well mentally today, but my autoimmune condition decided to rear its ugly head. I’m generally OK, but my shoulder is KILLING me. Every now and then, I get horrible inflammation in my joints. About 90 percent of the time, it’s my shoulder, and mostlyContinue reading “What an unusual 24 hours”

A day jam-packed with lots of this and that

Hello, everyone! Well, yesterday was a really weird, good and event-filled day. I am going to try to present everything in order. First, I want to point out that my typical day now is getting up, having coffee, exercising, writing a blog entry, lunch, working (whether it’s at my job or chores), dinner and relaxingContinue reading “A day jam-packed with lots of this and that”

Words of encouragement

Hello, everyone! Yesterday’s post was probably a bit of a bummer. But after posting about my fears after my current position is eliminated, I heard from several of you. And your words of encouragement and offers of help were really something I needed. I think part of my issue with all of this is thatContinue reading “Words of encouragement”

Sigh. It’s September

Hi, all. I’m bummed. It’s September. September means autumn, and then winter. The best months of the year have passed. Sigh. Yes, it’s still warm. In fact, it’s insanely humid out, and it has been for a couple days. Yesterday, I washed the car in the rain — yep, I sure did — and byContinue reading “Sigh. It’s September”
