Weekend Recap

The skating program I described - 

Thursday, January 24, 2013


I  switched my tennis to tonight from Tuesday.  The EITC/VITA stuff starts this week.  Last year, I worked one place on Saturdays and another on Tuesday evenings.  So for now, Tuesdays aren't good for tennis.  But shh, I haven't finished taking the tests yet.  I will this week.  The man who has been in charge has left, so things are a little up in the air.
My Mom's surgery seems to have gone well.  And she was a decent patient last night.  We will see how it goes.  Thank you for any prayers.

So currently, my Mom is having outpatient surgery.  Pray for patience for all of us in the coming weeks.  My mother has never been a good patient - she wants to recover immediately.  Life doesn't always work like that.  I just called my Dad, but he didn't answer his phone.  I'll update you tomorrow, so I'm not one of the people I complained about yesterday.
I think I have a few drafted blogs saved on here.  I will have to check and finish posting them for you.  New year, finish up the old stuff.

Or as those of us not in the government, education, or banking fields like to call it - another Monday in January.
Okay and GE and P&G get the day off.  But most other corporations or non-profits do.  It leads me to getting a little annoyed this time of year when I'm crazy busy, and people who get the day off try to explain that they work harder than me.  I didn't realize I had it so easy while I was driving to work, and you were home in bed.
Okay, and I know I probably sound whiny, but I would just like to add a few things I think when I read Facebook -
No, there's no way that is a good idea.  I can't think of a way that it would have possibly looked good to you.
Do you really like the new hairstyle?  Because it really doesn't suit you.
Lastly, don't say "Terrible news, please pray for me" and then wait for a certain number of people to beg for specifics before you say, "please don't ask" or finally give some vague answer.  Explain better the first time or keep it off Facebook because you look like a drama queen who thrives on the attention.

Well, I guess I've been catty enough for today.

Late Posting of Thursday's blog!

I wonder if blogger has an app?  I'll have to look for that.  I can't get to YouTube from my work computer.  I can get it on my phone though.  So I can find the video on there, and then email it to myself.  I can get to my email and then copy the link here.

Saturday Morning, er, Afternoon

Either way I try it Blogger won't accept YouTube's embedding code.  As they are both owned by Google, you would think that shouldn't happen.

Holding Pattern

Holding patterns
Pretty soon I’ll go back to video blogs as I have a new laptop.  I wasn’t going to have the motherboard fixed a second time on the Dell.
I have switched to an electronic organizer – I’ll let you know how that ends up working for me.  I’m trying Cozi.
As for the holding pattern title……………………………………………………….
Those vague things I’ve posted over the past several weeks?
It’s not going to start to be resolved for several more days.  Which is so freaking long after the issues were supposed to first get resolved.  I’m moving from worried to annoyed to just sick of the drama.  Honestly, in real life, I’ve talked to people who I value their opinion.  All of them have told me I’m being reasonable.  Does that sound bad?  It’s a situation where I’m trying to make it gray since I’m seeing it as black and white.  That I’m not over-reacting.  The feedback I get is that I’m under-reacting.  It makes me feel then like I’m being jerked around for no good reason.  I don’t know how that’s going to help the situation.
