I didn't want to go back to work since I was still feeling lousy, but knew I had to do it.  Besides feeling really tired around 2 p.m. and my voice coming and going, I did pretty well.  By the end of the day I was wiped out, but glad I had gone in.  We had enough people in today that I didn't go on the front desk at all.  I sat at my desk and caught up on things.  I am trying to show my co-workers things that I do.  I tell them it's only 8 1/2 weeks and I will be gone and they have to learn these things.  Their response?  "You're only a phone call away and you live so close you can run over here and show us."  O...K...

Our new part-time assistant is doing so well.  She has really caught on fast and knows when to ask for help rather than guessing.  So I made myself available and ran out to the desk when needed.  It worked out great.  I am feeling even better tonight so tomorrow I will put myself on the desk for a couple of hours.

Because I am still not feeling 100% Joe cancelled Bible study tonight.  I cheated and had TV dinners for dinner tonight.  I just could not cook after working all day.  I want to put something in the crock pot for dinner tomorrow because it is a late night and I won't get home until 8:30 p.m.  I know I won't feel like cooking.  I'm thinking I'll do my potatoes and chicken.  That always turns out good.  Then all I have to do is throw some frozen veggies on and dinner is ready.

Speaking of crock pot -- I saw a recipe today for bread made in a crock pot.  I've never heard of such a thing.  But you know I'm going to have to try it.  Maybe this weekend.

I did a little more decorating before I went to work but haven't taken any pictures yet.  I'll have to do that soon and show you.

I wish I had more to share with you, but that's about it for today.  Tomorrow morning I take Joe to the doctor for a check up and then go to work.  I know it will be another exciting day.  

I need to sleep.  I mean really need to sleep.  So until later...


60 days to retirement


  1. How precious is the photo & verse at the end! Totally adorable. Glad to hear you're feeling better.
    Still....don't overdo.The assistant sounds like a dream. ....A phone call away? Really?
    I'm tempted to ask for a doggie bag of that chicken. Sounds yummy!
    Take care of yourself & have a sunny day!

  2. I know you are not 100% yet, so take care of yourself. I do hope your co-workers will step up and learn all that you do, so you DONT have to get those calls to 'come quick' after you retire. Hope today is good for you.
