So I had written an essay about my previous work experience (in the list of things that can only happen to me, it turns out my last employer actually made it onto a national list of America's Top 100 Worst Bosses) but I've decided not to post it. At least not now.
My experience working for him wasn't as bad as many of my co-workers because I have age and experience on my side and I just couldn't be bothered enough to take the crazy home with me. Seriously, I felt a lot more pity because there were obvious issues than I ever felt abused.
But I was happy to leave.
And life has been a really unsettling thing here. My SIL was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and if there's a good kind, then hopefully that's what she has. At least, it isn't very aggressive. But the doctors here are working on Hawaii time and trying to get things moving is like trying to push a mountain a few feet over.
It's driving me crazy because I'd be standing in waiting rooms annoying everyone till things got done.
Mollie has only 3 more days of school and then she's in high school. Carolyn: we became friends when Mollie was in kindergarten.
I've lost 30 pounds. Today we went out for lunch and it was the first time in my life I sat down hungry, could only eat half my meal cause I was full and took home a doggie bag. I almost felt guilty for not being able to eat more.
The fruits and veggies here are freaking amazing. And we grow our own oranges and eating one is like drinking a glass of juice with just a little peel in the way. They are so amazing.
Living with family is nice. It took a long adjustment for all of us and we still get a little peeved at each other but I really like being here with them. I think I didn't realize how lonely I was previously.
