The Audacity of The Covid…

So got my results back, yes indeed, I have covid, but so grateful that I am fully vaccinated, and the symptoms were really not bad, I do have a slight loss of smell and taste, but really nothing more. I have been quarantined for the last 4 days, and I just need 5 more, and I am able to go back to work. So will be heading back in on Wednesday. I am thankful and grateful for The Lord taking care of me and my sister as well.

There has been so many people coming down with this and quickly, but I feel as though we didn’t get it worse because we were vaccinated, at least that is how I feel anyway. So in the spirit I am going to enjoy the rest of my days off, before I head back to work. Until the next time, enjoy yourself.

The Flu It Is…

So yesterday I went to the walk in clinic to get tested for covid…  since I was in contact with someone who tested positive. (My sister).  So they also tested me for the flu, which came back positive!  No results back on covid, will take 2 to 3 days.  Keeping fingers crossed the results are negative.   But until then We are both out of work.  She will be able to go back to her first job come Monday, but not her second until she recieve a negative result.  I did ask my supervisor if I could use a couple days of my pto.  So until then I wait.

Life is good in the new year. Work is good, just trying to keep healthy and in good spirits. Just one week into the new year. Ah! Until next time, Y’all be safe out there.

It is Cold…

I don’t like the cold, not like that, it is way too cold for me this Sunday morning. It is in the 20’s and I just need to be warm. I have the heat cranked up to 75 degrees, and I am wearing warm socks, but I dread going out in the cold, I have to go out today to get some things for the week, I am going to try to get in and out as fast as I can, so that I can get back home and back in my warm pj’s.

The start of 2022 it is going well, I pray that it continues to prosper.

Looking back, and Moving Forward…

2021 has been a year of hardship, and a year of growth!  Tears of sadness and tears of joy.  I left one job that was going nowhere and stepped into a job, that has given me a path in a new direction.   Made new friends , so much has happened this year.  But there is a new year upon us, and I want to hope that it will be a great year indeed!

So let’s look forward to the good things, the new thing, and the things that will bring happiness and growth. Here’s to an end to the year that was, and to the beginning of a year that will be.

Back To The Beginning…

I’ve felt so lost for so long, I have lost myself.  Ever since my mom passed things have been out if focus for me.  I stopped doing a lot of the things we had done together, and things I had done before they moved here to Austin. Today I went down to the Capitol by myself and had a thinking session. I vow to start doing stuff by myself the way I did In the beginning , I just feel I have lost myself in trying to do things for others. I am looking forward to the new year, but everything starts right now.

Photos from my trip downtown.

It all starts with me.

First Time, In A Long Time…

That I have had Christmas Eve off of work!  It feels great!  So to celebrate this special occasion, I am on the Cap Metro heading Downtown.  Nothing really, just to get out of the apartment,  a little thinking time to myself, got so many thoughts today in my head.  Anyway, stopped off at the Ross in the techridge.  So, so, so very glad I am not in retail at this time.  I truly had forgotten what it was like until I stepped inside of Ross.  Let me set the visual scene for you…

INSANITY

Clearly no respect for the workers who have to try and attempt to clean this mess.  People that will do this, and or let their kids tear up a store this way, clearly no respect.  Now-a-days you can’t say anything to anyone.   When people break things, it just goes without saying.  And I have been witness to people not even apologizing for breaking it.  They either just leave it where they broke it and walk off as if nothing transpired!  Parents let the kids run through like it is a playground, bumping into people and merchandise, half the time they do not even know where the child is…  I am so, so, so, very glad I am not working retail at this time.

So my job, they usually work a half day on Christmas Eve, but this year they decided to close, and give us a 3 day weekend. Last payday we got a Christmas bonus on our checks. It definitely came at the right time, Praise God! That is where I give my Glory to, God Himself for opening that door to get this job. So with saying that, let me continue on my journey Downtown. Until the next time. How will you spend your Christmas Eve?

5 years…

It’s been 5 years since my mom passed on, so many things have happened in those 5 years, lots of heartache, lots of love, so many changes, things I wish she could have seen, and things that I am glad she didn’t have to endure. One thing I know is that I miss her more today. My heart still hurts, my soul still longs for my mom… Life goes on, life prevails, you can’t go back, you can’t stop. You must continue to move forward, and forward I am moving, I miss my mom, she will always be in my heart.

Tonight, my job holds their annual Christmas party, I am not there, I am here at home in my pjs enjoying my night. I opted out of going, perhaps next year I will attend. I am hoping all who did attend, have a great time, and are safe as well, they are holding the party at the Westin down by the Domain, it will be an open bar, and they will be serving food, and have prizes to give away. That is definitely one of the good things I like about working and Credit Serve, is that the bosses have awesome give- a -ways and we get catered to when they are in town. It is a pretty laid-back job.

speaking of work things, we are now changing our health care providers, we had blue cross, blue shield, now we will have united, they say it is supposed to be even better than bcbs, I am hoping it is because bcbs was pretty dang good. And we are also changing pay providers, we had Paychex, now we will have questco, I hope it is all good.

I am tired so I am going to end this with until the next time.

Happy Thanks Giving 2021…

Today is spent with family, my sister, my nephew and his girlfriend and their dog. our cat and it’s a pretty crazy mix. Wouldn’t have it any other way though. Today will be filled with food, family, and lots of fun love. So here’s to having a great day all.
