On Fridays I Really Love My Job

Another week has almost come and gone. I love my job, but I find that I really love my job on Fridays. And now that I have a good tech supervisor for the weekends, I don't have to worry about getting called in.

I really don't think my co-workers realize how this job literally saved my life. Last April I went to visit Lynilu and while I was there I saw the opening for this job. I sent my resume not really thinking I would get the job. To my surprise they called me within a couple of weeks for an interview. I knew from the moment they called me that I wanted this job. You have no idea how happy I was when they called and offered me the job.

I will have been at my job for a year this May. Part of me finds it hard to believe that it has almost been a year, but then it also seems like so long ago that I started. But I do know that each day I go into work I am thankful for not only my job, but I am thankful for the people I work with. They are some of the greatest people I have ever worked with and I know in the process I have also gained 4 really good friends.

In other news: my blood pressure is still very high. Today it was still 157/110. I am drinking lots of water to "flush" my system so I can get this medication out as soon as possible. But here is some really good news: for the first time in eleven months I have not cried in more then a week. And that feeling is absolutely awesome.

And Yay, no crying! Crying isn't bad, but when you cry every day ... yeah, that's a problem. I'm glad you're life is trending up. :)

Chug that water!!! Flushing the system is good for all kinds of stuff.

It doesn't seem like a year to me since you took that job either - funny how time moves and doesn't move sometimes.

What's the pretty little bauble on your rear-view mirror? I like it!
