I'm sick.
and I don't remember ever feeling as crummy as this.
I've been to the doc, got some meds, and been sleeping for hours since.
Wiping everything down with bleach in an effort to keep the guys from catching whatever it is.

Dr. Austria said that I have bronchitis and a sinus infection.
That's what he always says.
To find out anything specific, he would have to do cultures etc.
and like he pointed out once, the treatment would likely be the same.
So... what ever it is. I'll be so happy when it's gone!

OK then...

I have a new 'job'.
Actually it's a new 'position', but at the Post Office we say we've gotten a new 'job'
This one is a little bit new. Different responsibilities ; a little more money. and of course, completely new hours and days off.

I'm adjusting.
Currently I am terribly homesick for my old 'job' and mostly my old co-workers.
Yet, I remind myself that when a prisoner is released from a long prison sentence , they miss the security of what they know so well.
In other words, this may still be the best move for me right now. I just need more time to adjust.

There are some positives manifesting already however.
ie the shoulder pain I've been dealing with for so many months ( the one that wakes me up in the night? that one.) is already easing considerably.
Saturdays off? I've got em.
Along with a promise from my supervisor that he won't ever have to 'mandatory' (postal grammar) me to work on Saturday, ever.
Speaking of supervisors.
I have a good one.
He's normal, he's human and he has compassion for people.
Huh... how did that happen in the Postal Service?
Anyway, I remember when he first hired on as a Letter Carrier. He's always been this way.
I just need to give it some time. I will hopefully find my niche at the new position and make myself a little home here.
We'll see i guess!

Matthew Polly

I ran into Matthew Polly's Mom at the grocery store the other day.

Seems his book is being looked at for a movie.

Now that is coolness.
