Another Monday


I can tell this week is going to be better than last, because for one thing, I got up and walked to this computer relatively pain free. In fact, I did not require more than one half pain killer all day yesterday. That is a first-in a very long time. My old friend pain is always with me, but it is manageable recently--the past three days. I have no idea why, but I'll take it. In fact, I had to make myself take it easy yesterday, after i cleaned and cooked and did the little bit of laundry that i had, that is, because what I really wanted to do was take a long walk. I struggled with NOT doing that all day long. It is what i do, when I feel able. But I am afraid that I will mess whatever-the-hell-it-is-that-is-making-me-better, up. So I didn't. And I felt guilty for it all day long.


So I spent my day basically on the couch. I feel old and boring. But that was after I made a decent dinner for my kids, and then cleaned it up. And after I dusted all the furniture in the living room, dining room, swept the floor in the kitchen, cleaned the downstairs bathroom, did two loads of laundry and made chocolate chip muffins. But I still felt like i was being really lazy. Geez. Give me one whole day off, and I am lost. Pathetic.


I am really glad that this is the last season of the Sopranos. I don't think I could watch any more---it is really getting strange. I have always loved that series, pretty unusual for me, as i really hate watching violence, and I cover my eyes when it gets really bad, and I know that is dumb for a forty-seven year old woman, but I can't look at it, and when you are watching the Sopranos, it is hard to tell when you need to duck and cover.....


I only have to work at the dealership today. I have plenty to do there---but this is a twelve hour day, and I am tired before I start. I have some employee issues to get straightened out today, I have been putting it off for awhile. I have gotten one problem there handled recently, however, and things are going better in that area. I feel relieved about that. Contrary to popular belief, I do NOT Like having to threaten any one's job, nor do I like to have to relieve anyone from it. I was afraid that was the only thing left---but the employee in question has finally seemed to get it. Finally. Some people are so hard headed, or maybe they do not understand that I will do what I have to do. Either way, maybe this problem will be history.


That is about all I have for today. It is Monday, after all. Some Mondays, it is a miracle to be upright and breathing, so I have done good. I hope your Monday is great-----Later.

So glad to read you woke up feeling better today - nice way to start the week! "Only" a 12 hour day... good lord! Hope it's going smoothly.

I can so relate to your feelings about dealing with employees. My theory is... if you do your job right, I'll be glad to leave you alone to do it. I have no patience with employees who require constant supervision or love to try to push the rules and my buttons. Ahh, for the work ethic of of old days. :-)

I'm not surprised that you feel better after having rested a little. I hate watching violence on TV too, so I really get you there.

Josie, you are right, to have the work ethic of the old days...

Soul----it's okay, we all do what we can do each day. Tomorrow will be YOUR day!
