What’s up peoples! I’m here, alive and kicking.
I’m taking it easy this whole weekend. I’ve been on a constant roller coaster of activity the last few weeks, and finally I just had to take time out for me—to rejuvenate and recharge my batteries. So I turned off my cell phone, stocked up on herbal tea and chilled with Norio as well as a few books in my TBR (to be read) pile.
I forced myself to go to work on Friday even though I wasn’t feeling particularly well. I’d been dealing with L3’s the night before, and had to take Motrin all through the shift just to be able to make it. Fortunately, I had a lady I was orienting, so she did all the work—I just got to cover her. My boss actually told me that I shouldn’t come to work with even a twinge of pain.
Hmmm, we’ll see how that goes. Norio thinks I’m so stubborn, but the truth is that I live a life of pain, and so I can’t keep stopping what I’m doing, planning to do or scheduling to do just because of some pain. Pain is a fact of my life, it reminds me that I’m still alive yet another day.
