March 21, 2018: Snow Day of Rest

An unexpected snow day at the beginning of Spring! I welcome it this week, especially after getting my wrist treated with cortisone the other day. Since my work days deal with a lot of lifting, the extra day of rest is welcomed. I managed to work yesterday with minimal stress on my hand. I usedContinue reading “March 21, 2018: Snow Day of Rest”

March 20, 2018: Tuesday Thoughts

Went to the orthopedist yesterday. I received a cortisone injection for the pain, yet the doctor informed me that it the discomfort retuns, I should consider surgery to remedy the problem. Surgery is the last thing on my mind right now, but yesterday’s visit was the second time I received the shot. The surgery soundsContinue reading “March 20, 2018: Tuesday Thoughts”

March 19, 2018: Monday Morning Thoughts

Today after work I’m visiting the orthopedist. I’m going to address the tendonitis that’s effecting my left wrist as of late. Since I received a cortisone shot in my wrist back in July, the pain subsided until a few weeks ago, and it’s preventing me from doing things that I normally enjoy. I really hopeContinue reading “March 19, 2018: Monday Morning Thoughts”

March 18, 2018: Weekend Accomplishments

Things that I’ve accomplished today: I began reading my Book of the Month. My selection is ‘Not that I Could Tell’ by Jessica Strawser. So far it’s an interesting read, a Mystery novel cenrered around a group of women in a small Ohio town. Not my usual genre focus, but I’m interested in seeing whereContinue reading “March 18, 2018: Weekend Accomplishments”

March 17, 2018: An Atypical St. Patrick’s Outing

Today Andy and I spent some time in North Jersey. I needed to get my hair done, and the salon I visit is a few minutes from my family’s house. It’s almost an hour to travel, but the woman I go to really listens every time I visit, so it’s worth it. After the salonContinue reading “March 17, 2018: An Atypical St. Patrick’s Outing”

March 16, 2018: Maintaining Connections

I had a very good conversation with a good friend last night. We were very close in college, and we manage to keep in touch over the years despite us living in different locations. We arranged to get together in a few weeks, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing her again. I contactedContinue reading “March 16, 2018: Maintaining Connections”

March 15, 2018: The Decline of Imaginative Play

It’s really sad that Toys R Us is closing all its stores here in the US, because the word out there is ‘children no longer play with toys’. I can’t believe how far children have come from not playing with toys on a regular basis. When I was younger, we always went outside with differentContinue reading “March 15, 2018: The Decline of Imaginative Play”

March 14, 2018: Wednesday Thoughts

My thoughts as I reach the midway point into the work week: I’m thankful that my left hand is still functioning. My orthopedist appointment is on Monday, so I’m doing everything I can to make sure it endures little stress. As much as I can avoid it at least, given that I work with smallContinue reading “March 14, 2018: Wednesday Thoughts”

March 13, 2018: Long Week

As I get ready for a very long Tuesday, I try to be mindful of what I’ve accomplished so work life doesn’t get too stressful. At least more stressful than it already is, especially with a problematic left wrist: I completed all my room displays for the month. I most likely need to switch outContinue reading “March 13, 2018: Long Week”

March 12, 2018: Home Early

It’s a rare moment when I’m home from work at 6pm, yet here I am at home, at 6:05, watching the evening news. Usually my job has me busy from very early in the morning until after 6…and I’m working until 6pm the rest of the week, due to the center being short-staffed. So I’mContinue reading “March 12, 2018: Home Early”
