I’ve been in therapy with Dr. Susan for 3 years this May. We generally meet (via phone, currently) every other week. When we were able to meet in person, we’d have coffee, and sometimes, the best Hawaiian burger at George’s Giant Hamburger in Walnut Creek.
Susan knows me very well by now, and I am heard and helped every time she and I speak.
She noted that I have CHOSEN not to worry about things that are not in my control. This is a great thing for me as I have generally been an, “I can fix it!” type of person.
“Fixing” things is an asset at work as a Librarian, but I was inclined to take it just a BIT too far, at times.
My regular routines are very good for me and I have little concern about changes I may have to deal with.
I have a full, regular day of work happening here, but I am sleepy. I couldn’t fall asleep last night until nearly midnight, then woke up at 730.
See…I’m not a morning person…never have been.
Before I went back to school to become a librarian, I was a Bartender for a decade.
Now THAT was a great schedule for me!
The only thing that keeps me trying this morning shit is the fact that I LOVE my job.
One of the main things I get to do is Help People find the information they need right now.
Sometimes that’s the location of the latest Mystery, or help with research for a school assignment, often it’s assistance with printing or scanning, and most importantly, it can be directions to the restrooms.
I get to assist with these and SO MANY other informational needs every day and I LIVE for this shit!
So…here I am…ready for bed. Time to curl up with this lovely furbaby:
Emily and I are currently waiting in Shelley (my frankencar) outside the vet’s office.
We are just here for her yearly checkup & vax update. A year ago, she had her right, lower fang removed due to decay & the only slight concern I have is that she might be a li’l chubby now…but aren’t we all?
After we close at 5pm today, I’m off for a 3-day weekend (WOOT!)
With this guy:
I feel possibilities ahead. It’s more than just spring…um…springing. it’s the potential hiatus from *waves around* all of the past year/few years.
The great staff at Bayside Vet in Vallejo just came out and got Emily. The folks here are excellent…one of the Vet Techs works p/t at my library and I love knowing someone so well, who will watch out for my baby.
This is where I brought my Boys when it was time for them to go…It was a sad, but beautiful, experience thanks to the staff here at Bayside.
The weather here in Vallejo, CA is perfect…sunny with the river breeze.
It will be warmer in Woodbridge (it most always is), but we might road trip on one of my THREE days off (but I repeat myself) to the coast, perhaps.
OK! So Emily is done here and it’s time to take her home.
She has a clean bill of health, besides a little too much weight. She was 11lbs last year & she’s up to 13lbs now. I just have to feed her twice a day instead of leaving food out for her constantly.
