Sometimes funny things do happen at work and it’s not all misery. Being one of the first two people in the building each day, the very first parking spot has been “mine” for years. This morning, out of the blue, my other early co-worker parked there. I was like WTF, Tim?? When I turned my computer on I had this email from him: “Sorry I took your parking spot. I had a bicycle in back to give someone so I parked close. LOL It won’t happen again.” I laughed so hard! Do my co-workers know me or what? It actually turned out to be a funny start to the day. :-)
I'm currently caught up in a Norwegian online young adult soap opera called SKAM. Season three features Isak and Even, the first gay couple on the show. These two young men are beautiful together and their new love for one another and the struggles that come along with it have captivated me. I have 2 eps left and I hope these boys get the happy ending they deserve.
Hi all! Yes, I’m still alive. :-)
Many thanks to those several of you who have dropped me notes over the past couple of months to check up on me. I greatly appreciate you thinking about me and your concern. You’ve given me the nudge to get on here and post an update.
Things at the end of May weren’t too bad. I was quite busy, actually. I worked several police volunteer events, which I always love doing. Then I had five days off for the Memorial Day holiday, and I was on the go with John, running around and having fun. I was also deep in the midst of my new ebook releasing, which occupied all of my spare time with marketing and promotion. Oh, and I also started up yoga classes again.
Things started to fall apart in June, in regards to work. I was completely and utterly betrayed by my two oldest friends of 15 years. They lied to me, stabbed me in the back and when I confronted them about their lies they turned it all around on me. We haven’t spoken since. I was utterly devastated. Then another blow came at work as well, right on top of this and and slipped into a long state of depression.
I tried to rally around mid-month, for my 23rd wedding anniversary with John. Only to find out our favorite French restaurant where we were having dinner, was closing the next week. So that didn’t help my mindset!
Things perked up a bit at the end of June. At work, I’ve reconnected with a gal who I’ve known for ten years and we’ve become quite close. It’s been nice to have a good friend again. I had friends from Fort Wayne in visiting for three days, who I hadn’t seen in many years, so it was a great reunion. I also worked another high-profile police volunteer event (a DUI roadblock) and it was a fascinating, amazing experience.
I took several days off around the 4th of July and went out and did several activities with John, which was really nice. I also went to the Styx / REO Speedwagon concert with my best friend Chris. What a fabulous night! And then just last week I saw the Queen concert with Adam Lambert, which was also fantastic. Had last Friday off of work and John and I spent the day together, then Chris came over on Sunday so that we could do our on-line check-in for our cruise to Alaska next month.
I should have known that things were going too well for me and looking up for a change and I received three bad blows in the last few days (two work related, one writing related) that have knocked me on my ass. So after this update I might be disappearing for awhile again. But I wanted to at least jump on and let you guys know what’s been going on with me lately.
Thank you all again for your concern. That really touches me. I’ve got a lot of great friends here. :-)
I hope all of you have been doing well these past couple of months. Let me know what you’ve been up to! I’ve missed chatting with all of you!
