I haven't been inspired to write recently .... as if you didn't know that. Nothing exciting at all.
Work is aggravating recently. One person is really on my nerves. Interestingly, it isn't the person with whom I had some much angst a few months back. That individual has turned into a really different person. Everyone at work agrees with that statement, so it's not just me. I still have some trust issues (my own issue) but the person is actually easy to be around now, doesn't snipe and snide at anyone. We've actually had some very nice conversations, something I wouldn't have guessed 6 months ago. I have no explanation for the change, but it is welcome. Anyway, the current aggravation is one of those people who isn't going away, but fortunately isn't always difficult; just cycles in and out of "difficult." I'm really strongly considering looking for another job. It is not easy to find jobs here, but I'm going to send out some feelers. I hate to think of leaving what I'm doing, but I have to take care of me. Because of office personalities, this job isn't easy, although the patients and families are wonderful. We'll see what happens.
I excited for my daughter. The house she has been trying to buy has been approved. But now, it has been long enough that she has to re-qualify, get an appraisal, etc., so she is scrambling around to get things in order. Then, hopefully, she and the kids will be able to come and spend the Christmas holidays with us. Her dad lives in Albuquerque, so it will be a good visit for us all. I can hardly wait! After that, I'm beginning to plan a trip to visit her in the spring. March in FL is doable, but not much after that! I'll need to plan a visit to my son's place in Wichita, too. Can't play favorites, you know!
As for me, the "situation" is slowly progressing. This is a busy time for him, winterizing his home and his parents' home in CO, and his younger daughter is getting married in the next few weeks, so time is scarce. But it is sweet, as well. A coworker asked me if I wasn't impatient, but no, I'm not. I will be more comfortable if things don't rush willy-nilly. It has been too long for me to feel comfortable with "dating," if, indeed, that is what people our age do! I don't know the rules, and I'm not about to rush. So it's OK .... slow, easy, long distance for now. I love the fact that he is gently attentive and not charging at me headlong. That would scare me silly! Nope, his pace is just exactly what I need. Smile for me, 'cause I'm very happy!
Okey-dokey, that's about it for now. Boring and happy as a frog on a lily pad!
