So glad. I worked it out with my boss that I can tele-work some days but not the first week of the month. It has been working out that if I stay home on Tuesday and Thursday I can recoup from the pain. When I work all week the pain just builds and builds and I hardly move on the weekend. It is amazing to me how exhausting pain is. I am so tired but when I lay down to sleep the pain radiates down my whole leg. I have these awful dark circles under my eyes now from not enough restful sleep. Okay enough whining.
My husband is a federal employee and months ago he applied for a job at Fort Snelling in Minnesota. Not too far from our hometown in Wisconsin. He got notice that he didn't get the job. Yesterday he got a request to do another interview with them. This would be awesome. I wish it would have happened back a few months before we put earnest money down on the new house. It will be a long commute for him. It would be a really hard beginning to 2016. They would want him to start in January. If he gets offered the job he will have to negotiate for February as I am suppose to have surgery Jan 6th. The other downside is he would move back without me. We have a lease that we can not get out of. So I would stay here and work and pay the lease. While he worked and found a room to rent there. It would be a tough 10 months but I think it would be worth it. I couldn't sleep last night and I laid there and it popped into my head that my cousin Julie has a huge house and all her children are gone. It is huge 3 kitchens, 2 living rooms, at least 4 bedrooms. I think it has at least 3 bathrooms too. So I will reach out to her if he gets this job offer.
What I am reading: I have read a couple of Tom Clancy's books recently. Dang they are scary. They were written a while back but they are nailing the current terrorism and world conditions today.
Right now I am reading James Patterson's Unlucky 13. Again with the scary terrorism plots. I hope the next book I pick up is more lighthearted.
Here is my Sunflower by Dimensions:
There is a lot of back stitching to be done that will bring out certain elements that right now just look like a mis-mash of colors.
OA For Today: Avoidance of suffering is natural, but as a compulsive overeater, I am alert to my tendency to try to escape what most people accept as a part of living.
OA Voices of Recovery: Prayer changes things, And when I don't like the changes, I can at least be assured that they came from God.
Happy Friday Everyone.
