Happy Valentine’s Day

The one thing I like about Valentine’s Day is the candy. Other than that, I think it is wasted money. The older I get, the value of Valentine’s Day decreases. Could you not get me wrong or anything? I think you should love your significant other every day and regularly spoil them with kindness and gifts. We really shouldn’t need a single day to remind us to love our partners.

I hope you Valentine is a good one. Show me what you got!


Winter or Spring?

Happy Groundhog Day

Will it be an extra month of winter, or is spring on the way? What will the groundhog say?

I don’t think it matters in my state, considering it always snows until summer arrives. However, sometimes we skip spring. I wonder if we will see spring this year? Hmmm.

New Year's Eve
New Year's Eve

The Good So this is the last day to reflect on the year 2020. The good news is we all shared the craziness of surviving the mask and COVID era. Although it is far from over and will spill into 2021, we will not be alone in the new year’s struggles. 2020 did treat me somewhat good. Here are some awesome things that happened to me this year. For the first time in years, I was no longer working in a crap job environment. I loved the job but disliked the office culture and lack of equity/equality.I managed to get…


The Copy Machine is the Debil
The Copy Machine is the Debil

Please make no mistake when I say that copiers and printers are the debil! As a computer technician, it is my job to fix, resolve, and repair the copiers and printers. I had been at war with the Ricoh copier at one of my three schools for a month. Here is how it went down. Meeting the Debil for the First Time In August, the principals return, and teachers follow a few weeks after. The first issue I am called on is the Ricoh copier machine is not printing. The copier is leased and not really owned or maintained by…


2002 Blast from the Past
2002 Blast from the Past

The beginning of the digital era I must have gotten my first digital camera in 2002 because that is the year of my first set of digital photos. Everything before that is all print. I imagine that the recent generations will never imagine the need to wait days and sometimes weeks to see photos taken. During this year, Autumn turned seven in August, and as you can see from the photos below, she loved PowerPuff girls. These were the days I called the household the Crazy Pet Gang Where the Fur Flies. Two Siberian huskies, and three cats. Simba, our…


Officially a Computer Technician
Officially a Computer Technician

A friend messaged me on Facebook this week asking how I was doing with my new job. It suddenly dawned on me; I have not given an update on my new career or my cochlear implant. This post may be a bit long, but worth the while if you want to catch up on my life events. Past the Job Trial! I finally made it past my trial period with the district. I am officially a computer technician. The start of my job back in August was very chaotic. I had up to 98 tickets and new on the job…


Lost in the Woods
Lost in the Woods

What if you were lost in the woods at night? What would scare you the most? First, it depends on what woods or forest or area I was lost in. I would not want to be lost in bear country. Although mountain lions are dangerous in some areas, I would be more concerned about a bear. Here is why. They are super sneaky and really quiet (as are mountain lions)They will try to kill you for your food (mountain lions would too, I suppose)They are huge, and your odds of winning are pretty slim (not sure I would take on…


Self Motivating
Self Motivating

I am currently working through a woman empowerment journal called The Fearless Woman. This is my first post on the questions in the book. Are you self-motivated? How easy is it to motivate me, and what do I find the hardest to say motivated? What can I do to improve self-motivation? Motivation is a form of habit; it needs to be taught, trained, and developed. Motivation is impacted based on personal interest, challenges faced, and other factors. For example, if a job is to find boring and long, one might need to enforce self-motivation. If one finds an exciting project…


Carpal Tunnel
Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel is the worst especially if you have arthritis as well. It is easy to think those suffering from carpal tunnel are over exaggerating the pain they experience.
I have discovered that carpal tunnel affects your daily activities. For example, getting dressed, putting in makeup, pouring a cup of coffee, driving, working, and finally the ability to write. All of these activities plus hundreds more have caused me misery and pain.
I did research on ways to relieve carpal tunnel none that has helped much. I even got those fancy night wrist guards and they do help me sleep but I still wake up with a swollen wrist.
Hopefully, with the prednisone treatment, I can get some relief. The goal; however, is to reduce the inflammation and attempt to manage my carpal tunnel to avoid surgery. Let’s hope it does not get to that point.
