After I got my big deal done yesterday and all approved and put to bed, so to speak, I talked to my boss about taking today off. He was fine with that, as I knew he would be.
I am in so much pain, I am not really clear on what is going on. I think it might be that I am so tired that my body just can't take it any more. So, this weekend I have three days off. I don't have anything on a schedule or calendar, or even in my mind, to do. I may get to the pool at the club, and I might hit the hot tub. Maybe.
I had hoped to get to a meeting this morning, but the pain woke me up at 2:30 and I have been awake since. I just ate a bowl of cereal and took a motrin and hope to get back to bed and sleep for a few hours. I will go to a meeting tonight, which is held at my church, and coincides with a fish dinner and some other church function.... if I feel better I will go to all of that.
Yesterday my trouble daughter called me at work (which always frightens me), and asked if she and my beautiful granddaughter could come over to my house after work. After I said yes, she called her brother and he came over too! I felt so crappy I didn't cook, so we ordered pizza and sat around and talked and got Olivia's homework done. It was a wonderful evening.
A couple of people have asked me questions this week - I will answer them now:
How do you fire a sponsor? You tell that person, in the nicest way possible, that this is not working out, that you have found someone else you think would work out better, or whatever your reason is for not wanting that sponsor anymore. My sponsee on Tuesday said that she felt that I was too busy, she didn't want to meet on Tuesdays because she has a meeting she wants to attend on Tuesday and I didn't have any other time for her. So she will ask someone else to be her sponsor.
What is a caucus? It is sort of a public meeting - where you raise your hand to be counted for the presidential candidate you want to be the nominee from your party. Very over simplistic, but in a nut shell, that is what it is. I was in a classroom in an elementary school with 46 other people of my party from my precinct. It was kind of crazy. But very cool to be part of the process.
If you're the praying type, please say a prayer for me, OK. This pain is really coloring my world an ominous shade of gray.
