Oh, hello! Good to see you again. Have some strawberries and other fresh fruit.
True to form, I’ve been M.I.A. for a while. I honestly don’t set out to be so lax. My intention is to come here and write but then life gets in my way.
Work has been crazy busy – 10-12 hour days busy. I don’t like it. At all. By the time I get home from work, I am so physically and mentally exhausted that it’s all I can do to get dinner for myself and The Wonder Twins.
I have a new manager at the Gas ‘n Sip too, so having to break him in is extra work. *heh* So far, he is good. He puts up with my venting and is good about providing solid feedback.
Also going on is that there are several family members that are having surgery in the next 4 weeks. Yes, I said several. It’s been extremely stressful, even though I don’t want to believe it. One of the surgeries could potentially impact my life significantly, depending on the outcome. Actually, I suppose all of them could impact my life depending on the outcome. I don’t think I want to think about that.
I’ve been asked to help my niece practice driving so that she can get her license. Apparently, the Sister and BIL can’t deal with her attitude when they drive with her. My feeling is that they are hyper-critical. I’ve been out with her a couple of times. She does okay. She just needs practice.
I am currently on 2 weeks holiday from the Gas ‘n Sip. I wish my time off was being spent in Paris or on a safari or something equally fabulous. Alas, I am here, providing transport, moral support, and other assistance as needed for said family members during the pre-op weeks.
I might paint my bathroom though. That’s exciting, right?
So what’s going on in your lives?

I LOVE painting. I don’t know that I’m very good at it but I wish we lived closer so I could give you a hand. Actually, I just wish we lived closer. What color are you thinking of painting it?
I’m glad you’re getting a break from the hectic, crazy work days. I love days like that for a while but too many weeks of that can break your spirit and deplete all your energy. Soak up some sun and have some fun while you’re off to get rid of all that stress!
Sorry to hear about all the surgery hitting your family. Best wishes to all for a speedy recovery.
