waiting for the other shoe

That's how I feel tonight. As if I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. The world just seems a bit off-kilter even though it's not. At least, I don't think it really is.... I think it's just my perception of things at the moment.

I have a doctor's appointment on Friday that I have to go give blood for this Tuesday and the kids start back to school on Thursday and I haven't done a single bit of school shopping and the only day I'm off work this coming week is tomorrow. I'm working 6 days this week because someone is on vacation & oh, it's going to be a really long week.

Tonight is fairly quiet which is actually really good because I'm tired. Not like go to bed tired but just tired in my mind. Does that even make sense?

A new girl starts training with me on Tuesday and that should be fun. They say she's worked with this particular system before so I'm hoping that it won't take much for her to get the hang of things. I've not ever really had to train anyone. Mrs. Betty doesn't count because she never did get the hang of anything. That was less about my teaching and all about the fact that she had NEVER used a computer before. She was upfront about it too & while she eventually got the basics down, she ended up not staying here to work. I loved listening to her stories from when she first started out in a hotel (in the 50s) and how everything was done by hand. So it should be an interesting week to say the least.

My sister has grated my last nerve. She woke up Saturday morning unable to see out of her eye and her eye doctor can't see her until Tuesday at the earliest. So I asked her when she was telling me about it if she had told them she was unable to see at all. I didn't get an answer. They tried to get her to have some sort of surgery on her eye a couple of years ago but she never went through it and so she was telling me today she wasn't really surprised by her current problems. It's all I can do to keep my teeth together about the situation. If you've known that something was wrong for at least 2 years, why haven't you done anything about it? -sigh-

I'm watching the news where they are showing the celebrating that is going on in Tripoli.

I think I'm going to go read a book since it's so slow in here & keep waiting for that other shoe. I need more optimism in my life.

It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point. In no particular order, here ar...
