An ending and a new beginning

2011 is coming to a close.......what a year we had. Snow, drought, tornados, and an EARTHQUAKE, not to mention the goings on at my job.  But I survived and tomorrow will be a new year and a new beginning.......may we all have a better year and learn to be kind to one another.

Am I wrong to gloat??

This week at my job was interesting to say the least.  One of my co-workers made a BIG mistake. There are three of us in this office and she has held a deep dislike/hatred of me for some time. Our third person is relatively new and young. She is a very friendly and out going person.There are multiple family connections of one type or another to others in the office workers here. One of these other workers started a rumor about our young lady and one of the male management members...... and my contentious co-worker chose to participate in this. Big the manager found out about the rumor and there was a meeting with him, the president of the company and my immediate boss. There was some chewing a$$ going on.  Anyway it was real quiet the last two days and I kind of enjoyed it. Our young lady was very upset and now she is no longer being spoken to either. I told her she did nothing wrong and keep her head up. And me?..........I was happy to see the guilty parties get all the mud they were slinging thrown back at am I wrong to gloat?   There is no room for this kind of behavior, I don't care who you are. This should have been left in the jr high days.  Really , who starts a rumor about someone who can fire you????  DUH!!!

Stormy Weather......I love it.

I am one of those strange people who love thunderstorms.  I know they can be dangerous, but what a show. My son also revels in a good storm, the more thunder and lighting the better.  Many people think this is because I lived in Wichita, Ks for many years, but I moved there in 1974 and loved them before that.  I think the clean air afterwards is so refreshing.  I even like a good snowstorm, because it's so pretty. I am sure if I had to be out in the weather of any kind, I would have a much different opinion.  I find the thunderstorm is the only redeeming quality of warm weather. I am not a fan of hot weather. When summer gets here, I can't wait for fall....... and I wait a long time.

Not Living Up to My Ambition

Well................I was going to post my 'thoughts' at the very least 2 times a month, and it's been a month since my last there went that goal. Such is life.The last 30days have been the usual hodge-podge of me trying to get things done, and succeeding in about 30% of the time. So nothing extraordinary, but I really wanted to do more. 
There have been illness,a death, and spouse's being hurt, on my co-workers part, so when they miss work, the others have to take up the slack. Not always easy when there are only 3 of us in this office to start. I am fortunate that I am mostly healthy and don't miss much, but I really need a vacation day right now. But that will have to wait a couple of weeks.
And..................I really do get frustrated by being the 'moderater' for the bead society. Don't get me wrong, I really love being a member and all of my fellow members. But sometimes when the $#&% hits the fan, I am the one with the bucket of water and a cloth. Some of us need to be a little less TOUCHY, and others need to remember to be more polite. We are not a bunch of children fighting over who is going to use the merry-go-round. I have been in an extremely active role for 3 years now, and I am tired of being a traffic cop. Well I have now gotten this off my chest, and can go to sleep and wake up tomorrow with a clean slate. Tomorrow is a new day and the past will be the past.

My Brain Hurts

Some days I think I should just stay in bed.  My day was somewhat ordinary, however, those in my life had less that stellar days.  My hubby didn't have such a good day, and I could tell by tonite he just wanted it to be over. Tomorrow will be better, I have decreed so. If only it were that easy.

I have coworkers who have bad days, and then I have a coworker who is a bad day. I have learned to let the anger roll off my back like water off a duck's back. This is my survival mode, and I wish I could wave a magic wand and all would have this useful ability. Alas, I am a mere mortal and cannot. Where is Albus Dumbledore when he is sore needed.

On a bright note, I and my family survived the great snows of 2011. One week later and it's nearly gone, and only the pictures remain. It was nice to have 48hrs with my family, nowhere to go, no one to see. I made some tasty homemade meals and we had the fireplace going. I did some serious reading and beading.  My kitties are returning to normal and are not quite so 'facinated' by the 'white' outdoors.

baby steps

I was inspired to blog by a friend of mine starting hers....................and so it goes. I don't have much to say today, but I am tired of snow. I like snow, but in Tulsa they just don't understand how to handle it, nor do the residents understand how to get around safely. One needs to drive slow, but if you don't feel safe, get off the road. Stay at home.I know you may be tired of staying at home, but look at it this way, you won't be hurt, or stuck , and you are safe and warm. I have been having fun watching my cats. They are confused. We have all been home more often, and it's WHITE outside. They watch out the windows constantly. When they look at me it's with the expression of : can you fix this?:   I wish I could.
