Happy Drugs

Posted by Seeking Solace |

I think the steroids are finally kicking in. Today is the first day that I don't have significant pain and swelling. It's about time. I was getting rather bored. Imagine not being able to hold a book or surf the 'net.

I decided to cancel my trip to the Critical Thinking conference. I figured that the money could be better spent on a re-con mission to a new home for my family. Also, I chose to attend this conference as a means to make a positive impact on the CT program at my college. Seeing as my future is uncertain, I do feel then need to make nice or do anything other than what I am supposed to do to maintain my job. Why should I? Will it make a difference?

In the meantime, I am looking and applying. I have already applied to a few places, a couple look promising. One department head sent me an email where he signed it "Your friend, Bob." I do hope bob is my friend and will give me an interview!

Cancelling the trip sounds like a good decision ---although, I was looking forward to your assessment of it... I get the brochure for it every year, but it hasn't been a good year to go yet... sigh.

What sort of climate is better for you?? Warm and wet or warm and dry?

I wish you well on the job search. How are you? I have not been blogging for a while, but since I've missed it, I've started a new one.

Take care. Feel better.

ITPHF: Warm definitely. Although warm and dry would be ideal, We would like to stay on the right coast.

Kayni: So glad to hear from you!!!

Will you get your $ back? Good luck on the job hunt. I'll be doing that soon. Remember, you gotta move somewhere the GML and I can visit :)

Renter Life: I got a refund of for the conference and a credit toward a ticket on JetBlue, which may come in handy.

Of course will find a place where you and GML can visit. And if GML is reading this...yes, I will try and get a pool!

I'm still catching up from being away. So sorry to hear of your health troubles and all the crap associated with them and the college.
Hoping you continue to feel better!
