Flat has always been a bit too small, but I love it and tho I have only been here 5 1/2 years, it has always seemed like my home. It was a sanctuary when I was so depressed...
There will be challenges too because so few places allow pets. I have felt tearful at various points this evening....
I'm sorry this is happening, Cindy. Your world has just been turned upside down. Let's think positive though. You'll find a space that suits you even better! xx
Sorry to hear that.. I'm sure you will find some place even more wonderful. Change is powerful tool to give u an exciting fresh start of your choosing
Thinking of you Cindy, sounds really stressful ☹. Fingers crossed you will find somewhere even better xx
Oh no! Sonny has good perspective...try to stay positive about finding a new, wonderful place for you and the cat(s?). I'm sure things will work out...
Yes! I think I saw it right. Jeff said catS! Yep, catS, Cindy! 😊
I'd just been thinking the other day that she will
have another birthday next month, she's already in the 'elderly' category (though really well) and that I haven't many pictures of her. She is particularly special to me because I adopted her with my last partner, and she's been with me since I broke
up with him, lived on my own, moved to Scotland, became clinically depressed and ended up losing my job, unemployed for a couple of years while getting well, and now about to finish my first year back at work. She has been here through everything,
including the el cheapo cat food. I was quite tearful when M gave it to me and tried to explain to him why it meant so much to me. Getting a card for his mother today to try to tell her. People are really amazing sometimes!
these beautiful connections are sacred, because they get us in touch w/the goodness in ourselves & in others. We ascend together.
That is so sweet, Cindy. Glad you've had such a great feline friend to be there for you through all of that & to have such lovely people in your life.
Close to tears here. Wonderful story.
though maybe I can get a bit more sleep before then
Awake here at 4:30, no birds, cloud and total silence
with - and then had to call another student who rang asking for several times this morning despite my colleagues saying that I was at a meeting. My brain has melted. Going to see if I can leave at 4 - to go home to a big furry cat who will want to
sit on me. Great. Just great.
Yes Cindy, but are you keeping warm enough? 🤯
Hope you can stay cool, Cindy!
student? are you teaching?
Hope your head is feeling better by now, Cindy. Headaches are terrible to deal with. And we'll done on getting things done on your day off!
side effect of the new med for endo, still in first couple of weeks. Drained, need early night as it's back to work and a load of stuff to do
weren't for that f*****g piper. Could he at least learn more tunes? Since I have to sit here all day I notice how small his repertoire is (or perhaps it's that - sssshhhh - all those songs sound alike :)
My workplace annoyance is the woman who has had a cold for 3 months and clears her throat and coughs every 15 seconds so loudly. These things are so trying, aren't they?
Bagpipes are the worst. Uilleann and Northumbrian aren't as bad...
*argh* noisy colleagues are the worst! And I don't even want to imagine anyone playing bagpipes while I am trying to work...
Celebrate with something enjoy which isn't the thing you are doing without! Well done! Keep going, you're doing great!
family. Got home and took 'nap' of 6 hours! Didn't feel like getting up but needed to feed cat. Will be going back to bed shortly, just knackered.
til late. Nearly hugged myself here on purpose! At this time of year everyone in team is under a lot of pressure, so while there is some comfort in knowing we're all in same boat, none of us have time to talk/commiserate. tomorrow is head under
the duvet time.
Whew, Cindy! I am pooped just reading this! Hope you are able to get some much needed rest soon. And hug yourself! 🤗
working 5 days!! Won't think about that for now
One step at a time, Cindy...you will take that on when you're able to do it. Just get through tomorrow. I know you can do it! Rooting for you!
Oh Cindy, I know how you feel with Friday being out of reach & having to reschedule days off with meetings 😢 they are lucky you are a good employee & very adaptable!
I'm off Friday too and already counting down the hours :) xx
Hoping you get the rest your body and mind are craving.
what's your resolution?
You can do it, Cindy! xx
We always have setbacks. Humans cannot be strong all the time. Good for you for your strength so long, and use a setback as a reminder for why you're doing what you're doing!
Sounds like a calm, peaceful day!
Oh my gosh, great idea. I need to get a library card for my new neighborhood. Have fun with your books! Good luck with treatment, for sure.
Oh, how I miss libraries! I have a Kindle now & BF has loaded it up with more books than I could ever read. Maybe I should stop by our local library for the comfort. I could use it. Hope the injections go well! xx
While that's good, not really feeling anything right now. Tired.
Hope the appt goes well 😊
Yes, hope the appointment goes well, Cindy. Enjoy the day off!
Cat and good books are a great start. I hope they'll distract you from everything else for a while! :)
I'm reading a collection of short folk tales from around the world. Found it in a charity shop. It's quite an old book, I think this edition is around 1930s...
And I've just got a cat on my lap too! 😊
I hate those nights, but comforting to know you don't have to deal with work stuff on little sleep. Hope today is better!
Youndid quite a few thing already, for a day off. Well done! Hope you are enjoying your book. Some vitamin D is always good
Big hugs Cindy 💕 remember it's the little things that count, even getting out of bed can be a mission itself some days! But you done it! Have fun reading with your cat ☺👍🏼 xx
Sounds like a good strategy for calming the mind. Sometimes it takes mind awhile to get with the program.
Hope you are feeling a bit better now Cindy. Thinking of you
Sometimes that's the best you can do. Hope your day will improve! :)
Take care of yourself, Cindy. You're up and facing the day... That's the hard part! You can do this!
Sounds like my yesterday. Wishing us all a day of recovery and health and energy and peace
take it easy for the day and be kind to yourself Cindy! 😊
Take it easy my friend xxx
Take care, Cindy!
closed the door and cried in my office for a while. Have been feeling a bit low anyway. Getting tearful again writing this. I have to be able to deal with things, and I know the hurt will pass, but right now I wish I never had to see these people
again. Just had text from officemate who knew meeting didn't go well and was also a recipient of the nasty email. He wanted to make sure I was okay. Kindness matters.
I'm sorry this happened and hope you'll have a restful night. Things may look not as dire tomorrow, at least I hope so! Big hugs!
Thinking of you Cindy bear x
Glad you have your office mate's support at least. Remember your work is not your life. It's just a job, and we all f-up on occasion. You'll get past it!
We love you Cindy Bear xxx
