Re:Daily Diary of Joy - Tuesday, January 28, 2014 7:36 PM
Rena--I'm doing well for now.  The pains have left and now I am just dealing with some stressful situations at work.  I am trying to get my resume together so in the event these things don't get resolved I have a fall back plan.  It took them 15 1/2 years to finally make me pissed to even think about looking for another job.  Oh well such is life.

Congratulations on the benign results from the polyps.  And sorry about the hernia.  Hopefully you will be able to manage without the surgery.  If is isn't one thing it's another.

Well off to bed soon.  This cold weather is zapping my strength.  Had to avoid the possibility of heat stroke.  The temperatures reached a whopping 1 degree today.  Heat wave!!  Now they are telling starting the cold weather snap will be behind us and we should see weather in the teens.  Bikini time!!

Everyone have a nice evening and stay warm where ever you are.

Tina, I'm glad you're feeling better. I hope you can resolve that stressful situation at work or find a nicer environment with another job. I hate what stress can do to our bodies. Stay warm if you possibly can. I cannot believe what's going on in the whole eastern half of the country.

Thanks, Elaine, for the "yay"! Pals

I know how you feel Tina.  We are having the same kind of temperatures.  I don't ever recall a winter as mean as this one.
