Affirmations time

07.30.2004 · Posted in Recovery

I am loved. I am living in the here and now. I’m living God’s will. … and I am somebody. Cheesy, huh? I said that twice a day when I was in treatment. It meant something to me at the time, but I haven’t really used the affirmations since, and it’s been about five months ...

So I finally broke down

07.30.2004 · Posted in Uncategorized

… and got a camera phone! But only because the damned thing is so tiny and cute. Plus it has a speakerphone, which I’ve always wanted in a cell phone. I also switched back to Nokia. It’s been a long time since I’ve had the pleasure of owning a Nokia and I love it! I ...

On the greenway

07.27.2004 · Posted in Home / Minneapolis

I was walking into work on the Greenway this morning when I saw a man walking his pet. This isn’t unusual – there’s normally a few people out doing the same thing. What was unusual about this man was that he was walking his CAT! He had one of those harness leasches hooked up to ...

Busy HR folk

07.27.2004 · Posted in Work

Well, we lost the big account that accounted for 20% of our income at work. The HR folk are busy hussling people into closed-door conference rooms and giving them their severence checks. Most of the office doesn’t know it’s going on. They won’t tell us what hapenned until later in the day. I’m expecting an ...

At least this time I’m sober

07.27.2004 · Posted in Work

Well, it happened. I was the last person they called in. I’m guessing there were abour 40 of us all-together. My manilla envelope contained a breakdown of what I was being payed off for (vacation, severence, pay-to-date, etc.), information on COBRA benefits, and a copy of the confidentiality agreement I signed when I first began ...

IKEA trip

07.26.2004 · Posted in Home / Minneapolis

Okay, so I was all excited about IKEA opening and then I didn’t even post anything about my trip… or maybe I mentioned it, but I think it deserves it’s own post. We’re here!!! They had an entire parking lot set aside just for the media. It was the closest lot and it was HUGE. ...

My Minneapolis light rail debut

07.26.2004 · Posted in Home / Minneapolis

A couple of weeks back, two buddies from work and I decided to take a lunch hour ride on the new light rail system. This was the funniest part of the trip. The train was stopped, but the cross gate was down and this guy in his wheelchair was just stopped, waiting for it to ...

PH balanced for me

07.22.2004 · Posted in Autobiographical

It was so nice to wake up this morning without the sweltering humidity! I got up early and headed down to Spyhouse, where I got my regular coffee and blueberry muffin. Did the crosswords and came in to work. Sort of feeling blah today. Roommate is still undecided about moving, and as such, feels the ...
