Springing Forward…

Daylights savings time begins again, this time we spring forward, so we lose an hour.  I like that it gets dark later now, that is good for me; since I ride the bus, and I hate walking to the bus stop at 6 and it is dark, so this gives me a little more light out.  The days are just running into one another, so quickly that I am not able to catch up with things.  Next week, it will be 3 months since the passing of my mom, I still cry, last night I had a good cry with my sister.  I will be so happy once I can stop crying, and just have that sense of peace and calmness inside of me, no tears, just being able to talk about her, without having to tear up every time.  In time, in time it will get there, just have to be patient.

Lots is going on with work, lots of things we are doing, we got in live plants and flowers, and they are selling like crazy, I have been thinking that soon, I will get some.  I have been working hard this week.

I have been working on getting my apartment ready to receive my cat princess.  I will be getting her a new litter box, and also a new cat tree, so that she will be right at home.  Also getting a new sectional and area rug.  Once I get that done and situated, I will post photos.

South by Southwest is in town now, not plan on going to any of it, I just do not really have time or patience for it.  Anyhoo, life goes on.  I at least have Monday off, so will make the best of it.  Until the next time friends, enjoy!

My Corner…

Another evening here at the hospital.  Today was my day off from work, so spent it taking care of business,before heading up to the hospital.  As I quietly sit and type this out; what comes to mind is how are we, meaning I coping with all this.  I figured some day I would have to assist my parents, or care for them.  I guess I never thought it would be this soon.  But it is something that I have to go through and learn, because at this point, my family and I will be caring for her, in this capacity.  At times, I mean mostly I feel very overwhelmed.  Like I can’t…  I know I can, and will.

Life has so many facets.  I don’t know anyone who is prepared for this, there are so many things that need to be done as well.  Things we do not want to discuss, but have to follow up on them.  Very important.  Life is so very precious, love hard and forgive quickly.

Just another night here at the hospital.  

My Corner…

Another worth while day with mom.  I get to spend more time on Sundays,because I have that day off.  Anyway, life is chugging along, they have spaced out her medication, the pain is not like it was in the begining.  Still not walking or able to stand; but in time and with much physical therapy this will be possible.  

All this is what is called adversity, we all eventually go through something of it.  How we deal and handle it is the other thing.  I was watching Dr. Stanleys program on adversity, what he said is so very true…  God does not give you more than you can handle.  He knows what you can and can not, and at which times as well.  I know that if these things had come up at another time in my life, it may have been too much, but God knew, I know I am so much stronger for it.  To God I give all the Glory and Praise!

Well, getting my time in with mom.  that is all that is going on in My Corner.  Enjoy your day.

Summer clean up…

So today I took off work, needed a little mental break.  Today was well needed.  So me and mom did some end of summer claening of my storage.  When they came here a year ago, they stored their stuff in my storage.  So now, it is time to clean, throw away, shred, donate stuff they will not need.  We are almost done, with the exception of a couple of boxes.  Then the stuff they need to keep, and want to take to their apartment they can.  

Speaking of work, it has been going.  I am hanging in there, abour to go from tier 1 to tier 2 in another week.  I can say it can be trying at times;but nothing like my last call center job.  To be continued!!!

Training Days…

Well today is day three of three weeks of training.  Hoping to pass tests next week.  The trainer just seems less than thrilled, basically the class is boring.  There are 21 of us stuck in a tiny cramped class,  it is a snoozefest.  Everything is done on a projector screen, I take notes by hand, she does not clue you in on what important notes should be taken.  You are just figuring it out as you go along.  The class participation is meh…  I just pray I soak it all in.  Stay tuned.

Between getting home around 6 and taking in the Olympics, that has been my week.  Then dinner, and off to bed to start it all over again.  I am glad that the training schedule has the weekends off.  I can do something this Saturday, probably  go to the mall.  Speaking of Olympics, did anyone catch those swimming finals oh yeah!  They worked it out. Well, time to get this day started, gotta keep hydrated, it’s hot out there y’all.  Enjoy your day.

Today was a good day…

First day of the new job.  Went well, no first day jitters for me, probably because I was just way ready to get back at it.  Bills wait for no one.  I feel confident that I will do well, more like I am praying I will do good.  Stay tuned!  Today was not as hot as yesterday and the day before, I can deal with it today.  I am returning to waking up at 5 am to get the 6 am bus.  Since this job is far south, out near the airport area.  I am going to do my best, try to get a whole year in if possible, then try for something a little more closer to the north.  

Life has been chugging on for me.  Trying to keep cool in the heat of summer.  Especially since I hate staying indoors, when I can be out exploring, but for my health, I try to limit the outdoors to early mornings.  

Gonna try to get to the pecan street festival next month.  Plus going to start attending church again.  Stay tuned as well.  Well this is it for now, until the next time.  Enjoy!

GoT… and other shows.

Wholly dragon balls my friends, well friends who watch The Game of Thrones.  Last nights episode was Amazing!  Got to see Bran, and got to see at the end of course, what happened to Jon Snow!!!  If that wasn’t crazy, I don’t know what is, but then again it is only episode 2.  Whoa, whoa, whoa, this season is going to kick ass so hard, I am loving this show.  So glad I am able to watch it.  I will eventually have all the boxed sets.  Last night was crazy good, can’t wait to catch next Sundays episode.  Seriously people, I recommend this 200 percent.

I also recommend watching The blacklist.  With liz now dead, of course I don’t believe she is really gone, I think it is just to throw the bad guys off her sent, that have been hunting her down, they had to play like she died, but you know how writable these stories can be, I do believe that she is off for now, because she did have a baby in real life, they had to write all that into the story line, but it’s all hear say from me, I am not all that sure, but I am going with this story.  It has gotten really awesome, and since I  read that it has been picked up for season 4, I am all giddy with glee.  So watch, it is a really good show.

I am watching season 3 of The agents of Marvel, really good, really good, they also have been picked up for another season.  So, pretty much this year has been well off for things to watch, then of course there is Netflix, and the originals and things they are showing, loving every minuet of it, when I can get around to watching.  That is pretty much about it for now, so until the next time show watchers, enjoy this season, of prime time.

IT’s not rocket science, it’s only the front counter…

Well, onward sweet flowering life.  About 3 weeks ago, I ended my stint with that place I was, one of which I shant mention, and now I am working for a temp agency, and my first gig started today, I had a day of training on Saturday, and today was my full day of work, sure, it is only for a week, then I move on to other pastures.  It is pretty interesting indeed, this stint is for a florist in the city, I am at the front counter, is it pretty busy, for this will be mother’s day, and it will be crazy.  I never knew so much went in to flowers, oh the business behind the petals and stems.  I was a bit nervous, but the crew I work with is so very gracious, and I feel very comfortable in this spot.  I am really digging this.  I will get new assignments for now, this is working for me, of course, always looking for longer term things, as the process goes on.  Here’s to the sweet smell from the flowers of life.
