Actually did watch the entire Master golf tournament today. Phil Mickelson won, 3 strokes ahead of the rest of the pack. I was in tears as he hugged his caddy, then hugged and kissed his wife (first day she'd been to the tournament). Then... Read more

Despite the events of Thursday (losing my job assignment), I didn't hit the candy stores, didn't drown my sorrows in Dove (or Hershey) chocolates. I was proud of myself for that, and I know I can do the next 265 days as well. I may actuall... Read more

Went to my home healthcare job and worked hard for about 5-1/2 hours out of 6. I spent the other 30 minutes sitting outside on the caretaker's front porch, desperately getting some fresh air. Let me explain about the house. It's a small a... Read more

Wednesday was pretty hectic. Worked my home healthcare job, which was pretty labor intensive, then to the Girls' club, where I had to adjust to the high energy and noise of 60+ girls. I managed to survive. Then to my stylist to get my... Read more

I started my new job Monday. First few days are tiring, as I'm learning the routine for caring for two people. I get a lot done, and it's great exercise. And I feel I'm needed here. I think I'm going to have to give notice to my other jo... Read more

Had a very interesting day. I may have a second part-time job. It's a home healthcare assignment. Six hours, five days per week, starting in the morning, and if the client approves me, it would be a permanant job. And the pay is better.... Read more

Up with the birds (don't they know it's Sunday - a day of rest, and EASTER?). Saturday morning I had gone out shopping for about 2-1/2 hours - 3 grocery stores (trying to find the elusive "Kraft - Olive & Pimento cheese spread - couldn't fi... Read more

Woke up at 5:18, despite myself. Actually it was my cranium that woke me up because it was in excruciating pain. I tried to ignore it and go back to sleep, but I couldn't. I finally fished around in my purse and found the ziploc bag with ... Read more

Woke up around 6, despite the fact I didn't need to get to work until 9 am. I needed to do some shopping, since I finally got my check cashed last night (see 4/1/10 blog). So I went to the same Wally World that wouldn't cash my check Thurs... Read more

I was disappointed at the low turnout for my book club on Wednesday for grades 6-up. But there was a lot of competition. Today, after having a somewhat quiet bus drive, I walked back to the club building to find out that low turnout for th... Read more

Today it's actually supposed to be 80 degrees or so. It's hard to believe when the morning temps are 32 or so, but it will actually happen. Yesterday it was 32 in the morning, then zoomed up to 70 in the afternoon. It's great to see t... Read more

I had planned on lazing around until 1 pm or so, then going to work. A friend called at 8 am, and needed some help. So I went over to her place and helped her clean and pack (she's moving April 1). I called my job and told them I migh... Read more
