Today, I went to the office and had a fairly productive work day. Two of the three overhead bins have been emptied and the remaining binders and manuals will probably fit into one box, perhaps two. I have a few more files to sort through, but I can do that, tomorrow; the rest of the 4-drawer file cabinet has been emptied.
During my lunch break, I paid my property tax bill and went for a walk. Today's walk was along one of the routes I had already posted about, so I didn't take any new pictures.
I stopped at the pharmacy on my way home from work to pick up two medication refills that were ready. I inquired about a third (one that I had called in) but it required reauthorization from the doctor and they said they hadn't heard from the doctor, yet. I might call the doctor's office, tomorrow, to ask about it.
It was 7:00 p.m. when I got home and I was tired. I had a cup of tea and a ham sandwich (lunch had been rice, fish curry, cabbage and lentils with an orange for dessert; I had some almond-flavored cookies as a snack) and rested a bit. Later, I cooked the chicken drumsticks - half was made into a curry and the other half sauted with onions and some spices. Then, video chatted with daughter for a bit and wrote an email to a friend. It was already 11:30 p.m. when I said goodnight to daughter. It is 12:30 a.m. now. Where did my evening go?
Today, I am grateful for:
- A safe commute to the office and back
- A productive day at the office
- Minimal drama at the pharmacy
- A nice cup of tea
- Being able to pay the property taxes
How was your day, today?
Must be a relief to almost be ready for your office move. Is your employer aware of your planned retirement date or will they find out when you put in your notice?ReplyDelete
It rained all day here yesterday. Attended noon Maundy Thursday service. Wrote out a short list of last minute items needed from the grocery store. A good day.
Glad to hear that you had a good day, Sandy. Sounds like you are all ready for Easter. :)Delete
My supervisors are aware that I am planning to retire, soon, but I haven't given official notification, yet. I will complete 35 years of service in early July; retirement will be shortly after that, I think.
I'm not sure how it happens, but I have one doctor that I always have to contact personally to get a prescription renewed. He and the pharmacy never seem to make contact. However, a quick email from me and it's taken care of. Also, I'm glad you are out walking again. That means that you are building your strength back.ReplyDelete
The doctor's office says records show that the doctor sent the prescription order in early March with 3 refills. They are now trying to contact the pharmacy to see what happened!Delete
Yes, I am trying to walk, again; little by little. :)
You even SOUND tired. (((hugs))) Nice thing it was a short work week for you. Perhaps you can sleep in and wake up refreshed to enjoy a relaxing Spring weekend. I hope they were able to reach your doctor before the end of yesterday. They will have to wait now until Monday or Tuesday.ReplyDelete
You have been really productive at work. With the amount of paper work you have handled at work, it is no wonder you have procrastinated at home. Give yourself a break, and a pat on the back, for having accomplished so much.
Thanks for the hugs, Susan. Sometimes, those short weeks tire me out more, I think! The doctor's office claim they never received the faxes sent by the pharmacy and that the new prescription was sent to the pharmacy, earlier this month! I know I told the doctor, on my last visit, that I will need more of the medication. I don't know why the pharmacy claimed they needed reauthorization. They are going to call the pharmacy to follow-up on it, they said, and will call me back.Delete
Yes, the last thing I want to do when I get home is deal with more paperwork! Maybe, once I retire, I'll have pristine files at home! :D
Glad you're getting things sorted at the office. It's nice that you can get out and have a walk on your break. It certainly helps to take a deep breath and just get outside. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sharon. It is good to get outside and take a walk. I do wish I had more scenic walks like you do, but there's beauty in the city, too, if you look for it. Hope you are having some spring-like weather in which to walk.Delete
You have done well to reduce the items you will need to move with you to the new building. I hope it will all work out well and that you will find some advantages, even if it does create parking problems initially.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the explanation of how you knit a sleeve. When I am ready to face that sweater again I will see what I can do. Right now I have abandoned it and I have taken up another project that I had only just started a while back. It is a white crochet trim to replace the one I was so proud of on the kitchen window topper. The sun rotted it over the years and when I washed it, a large part of it disintegrated. It's time to put that topper back or I'll have to buy a new one which I won't like as much!
Thank you, Bushlady; I am holding on tightly to my mother's famous saying, "Change is good". :) Yes, the issue of parking is a bit of a challenge, but, I am sure I will find a way to deal with it.Delete
I'm sorry your crocheted trim disintegrated, but glad you have another project to work on while you give those troublesome sleeves a break. I am hoping to finish sewing up my sweater, tomorrow, so I can work on those 2 t-shirts for my niece's sons before I see them on Monday!
