Work was a bit unpleasant yesterday when I told the Potential Problem Person (PPP) that she is not a special case and can’t have approval to work one day a week from home.  She was not pleased, and it’s always uncomfortable being the bad guy.  Oh, well, I just need to shake it off and move on.

The wind is howling outside, a last gasp of winter (I hope).

Had a quiet weekend with some good early morning hikes, some reading and a good bit of housecleaning.  I’ve lately become fascinated with the documentary depression-era photographs of several American artists, most particularly Dorothea Lange, and so I spent a lot of time engrossed with those.  My insurance statement from the first surgery and hospitalization arrived.  Without the insurance, it would have cost over $15,000, but because of my coverage, the cost to me was $0.  I’m very grateful to have that insurance, that’s for sure.  Now it’s back to the work world.

I made it through the last radiation treatment, hooray.  That whole radiation team was so kind to me, especially the doctor.  They gave me a certificate for completing the treatments, which was pretty cool.  I also learned yesterday that radiation treatments cause fatigue, so that explains a lot!

The unseasonably warm temps have passed, and now we’re into typical cool and rainy March days, which I welcome.

I looks like the boss will be around quite a bit today, so who knows what I’ll end up doing.  I’ll still aim to complete five things from the list, but that may not be possible.

Well I did it.  I made my way through the procrastinated tasks yesterday and feel much better for having those things behind me.  In fact, they weren’t all that difficult.  They were just unfamiliar, and I doubted my ability to figure them out.

My final radiation treatment is this morning, and I am taking the day off from work.  Aside from getting the treatment, I have no big plans for the day, other than to enjoy the Spring rains, hike with the dogs, do some strength training, and lots of reading.

Well, I made no progress on the Procrastinated Tasks yesterday, because my e-mail brought me urgent matters at every turn.  I devoted the entire morning to completing an on-line test that had to be done at once so that one of our clinical trials could continue.  It was especially ridiculous because the subject of the training and test was good clinical practices, and I am clearly not a clinician. 

I’m really hoping that today will be the day that I move through the Procrastinated Tasks.  I’m at the point where I still feel a sense of dread over them but also want to be free of them.  Paws crossed for some peace and quiet!

It’s rather shocking to me how quickly the American press has moved past intense coverage of the Trump-Russia investigations.  It seems to me like a tremendously huge deal that the president and his administration have been the subject of investigation for treasonous activities since July, and it’s also a huge deal that the president has been shown to be a liar and a slanderer with his accusations against President Obama and the British intelligence, yet these things lasted one day in the news cycle.  I don’t get it.

The political news in the US is full of intrigue, as the top intelligence dogs confirmed under oath that an investigation into Trump’s ties with Russia has been underway since July and also that his accusations of spying against Obama were lies.  Everyone knew this anyway, but it seems more serious now that it’s all been confirmed.  Meanwhile, the Cheeto bumbles and golfs his way through, seemingly unaware that he is in way over his head.  Like millions of others, no doubt, I”m praying for the impeachment to begin.

I’ve reached the point at work where it’s time to focus on some things that I’ve been putting off, mainly because they are somewhat unfamiliar.  Today I will wade in, persevere, and conquer these Procrastinated Tasks!

It was a nice, relaxing weekend with extremely pleasant, albeit unusual, Spring-like warmth and sunshine.  I’m starting to think that I might be able to plant my garden before June this year.  I’m getting back on track with daily hiking.  It feels good, and the dogs are very happy to be getting more exercise.

My mom and I talked quite a bit about politics on Friday, and she made the shocking comment that she no longer considers herself a Republican.  Such is the greatness of her hatred for the big Cheeto.  Thank goodness we are on the same page with this.  I feel for people I know who have to deal with relatives who support that criminal.

This starts the third week of the fast metabolism diet.  I do lose weight on it, although not the prodigious losses that some people experience.  It’s rare that I am excited to eat the foods on the plan, but it’s also rare that I feel hungry. 

I’ll be leaving work early today for another radiation treatment and then will head on home.  I should be able to get a few things done before noon, as long as the boss occupies himself with things other than me.
