This is the time of year when I’m always thinking, “Phew!  Made it through another winter.”  And just lately I’m also thinking, “Phew!  At least the Dutch had the good sense not to elect another far-right wacko.”

Yesterday’s radiation treatment was fairly unpleasant, but I made it through, and the next ones should not be as bad.  Quicker anyway.  Although I’d love a quiet and productive day, Fridays when the boss is around tend to be hectic.  Nevertheless, I’m aiming to finish five things from the big list.

As usual, I was worried about my annual budget meeting with the department head and felt inadequately prepared, but the meeting went extremely well.  We chatted a lot about different things, some work-related and some not, she was happy with the budget, and she even told me that I’d done a good job.  So phew – I’m glad that’s over.

The boss wasn’t around much yesterday, but when he was there he kept popping into my office with random questions.  All of his pop ins come with a sense of urgency, no matter how trivial the issue.  I’m expecting more of the same today and so will focus on staying calm and plugging away with my big list of work stuff.

It is quite unusually warm these days, as if we went from winter to summer almost overnight.  I took the dogs on a hike wearing shorts and a t-shirt yesterday, and we walked on dry trails.  This never happens in March!

Tomorrow is my first radiation treatment.  I’m trying not to think about it a lot because it will be long and unpleasant and maybe painful, so I am kind of dreading it.  I scheduled the entire day off from work so that I can just have an enjoyable random day off if the treatment isn’t so bad or I can go home and go to bed if it is.

Even though the boss is back in town, I barely saw him yesterday, so it was another day of quiet productivity.  Today will probably be different.  I also have to meet with the department head to review our annual budget.  I’m again feeling nervous and inadequately prepared, although the presentation with the boss went well enough.

We set the clocks ahead one hour in the US yesterday.  As usual, I am grumbling about the change.  Just when we have what feels to me like the ideal balance between light and dark, we mess around with the clocks…grumble,  grumble.

I was very surprised to see the first robin of Spring yesterday.  This is quite an early sighting.  I also spotted a couple of mule deer peeking around town, which was very nice.

The boss is back today, although it looks as if he’ll be occupied for most of it.  I need to prepare a financial report to present to the department head tomorrow, so here’s hoping the boss won’t have me in his sites today.

therapy

3/10/17 ftf, wren

Yesterday’s meeting with the leisure time coach was quite pleasant.  It turned out that her leisure activities were very similar to mine, and I came away with a feeling of motivation and knowledge of a new painting technique.  The meeting about the former problem employee was also fine.  She has filed another complaint, but I’m only peripherally involved, so that’s a relief.

I’m meeting with a radiologist today to find out more about radiation therapy, so I expect to have my treatment plan for that today.  Beyond that, it’s the last glorious day of bosslessness, so I intend to make the most of it.

It was a nice, low-stress day at work yesterday, although I didn’t reach feats of productivity levels.  With three meetings on tap today, it may well be more of the same.  First thing in the morning, I have a meeting with some sort of counselor who is (I hope) going to help me find ways to make the most of my time off.  This is a new service offered by my employer.  In the afternoon, I have to meet with someone from the office of equal opportunity, because last year’s nightmare employee has filed a discrimination claim.  I hope that isn’t too dramatic.

The boss is off to a conference for the rest of the week – hurrah!.  I’m looking forward to some relatively quiet days when I can make more progress with the list.  So far this week, I’ve finalized our Center’s annual budget and fleshed out two of the three project budgets that need to be done, so at least it feels as if some progress is being made. 

I’m starting today with a massage at the cancer center.  It’s one of the services offered through their wellness/survivorship program.  For the past six months, it’s been one painful, invasive procedure after another, so I am thinking that it will be helpful to have something relaxing done to my body for a change.
