Nice and Quiet

OK I removed my uniq clock. I liked it, yet others found it loud and annoying. I think I'll go back to my other quiet clock.

Sunday and it's a new week, new month. Had to give in this weekend and put a down payment on a new fence in the backyard. My neighbour(the OK one) is having her's done. The guys seem to be doing a good job on it, so I decided to get them over to my place for a quote. Not bad really, as I only have to do one side and I don't need to replace my gate, as it is fairly new. Not that I have the money . If I waited to have money, I would never get anything done. Oh and it's going to be higher than the old one, so that will give the other neighbour(the Bad one) less to snoop about.

I sure hope I have a better work week because this past one was awful. Some people have no clue what confidential means, some people fancy themselves to be amateur psychiatrists, others are just plain meddlesome busy bodies. I was sorely disappointed at how they tried to renege on the tele work arrangement. That's still on track though and it seems I have a couple of people in my corner now .

At least I am rid of one miserable ogre, who kept telling everyone about my "cognitive issues". That person should know, since they were the cause of them !!
Good riddance. (Just hope you don't cause anyone else so much misery on your way to the top)

I'm exhausted today. I think it's a hangover effect from all the gardening I did yesterday. Hard to accept that this is the way it will always be. That I will pay the price for trying to act like my old energetic self. I keep forgetting she's gone.

Have to compliment the U.K. MS Society. They do an excellent job of raising awareness of MS. I'm leaving the link to "MS Out Loud" on for awhile as there are so many good ideas on it.

Time for a shower before the Opera show

Oh yeah forgot to mention the movie Nixon/Frost, is worth a look if you haven't seen it.

That sucks that someone thought it was their business to talk about what is going on with you. People need to mind their own business and stop trying to make others look bad so that it makes them look better. I am glad you got out and did the gardening. It probably felt good to get out there. I am sorry for the result of having to pay for it today. And I do know what you mean about " that other person is gone". I find myself in that same problem all the time.

Hi Carole
I know what you mean around the hangover effect and remembering what you can (and can't achieve). I went out yesterday and walked home - which I used to do without thinking about it... today I'm so exhausted I'm not getting out of bed!

Your job stories always make my skin crawl. %^&* I'll put Nixon interview on my Netflix. How can people be so cruel to say things like that about you? Such low self esteem---pity them.
