Hi everyone,

Sorry, I thought by this time I'd be caught up with evertying a new boss was throwing at me, and be able to post more. Well, I'm still deep in work, but enjoying the challenge. This is the first boss in about 10 years who not only expects a lot but LISTENS as well. I don't mind high expectataions if they are coupled with reality, and listening to my opinion/expertise and recognizing that I have half a brain.

(OK, some days it is only about a quarter brain... :roll: )

Anyway, I'm doing fairly well energy wise, pain wise and health wise, have had a couple days where a flight of stairs constituted heavy exercies - and was avoided. I have been smart enough to eat right, go to bed early... most days. (We won't talk about the crab rangoon the other night... :oops: )

Weird, I'm the HR person, I know all the laws and the rules, yet I haven't said anything to the new boss about my lupus. She knows I'm sun sensitive, as I adjust where I sit in her office on sunny mornings, and of course there's the ever present HAT when I'm outside... 8) But at this point, the lupus isn't an issue - I'm taking care of myself and don't need to share...yet.

Hugs to everyone here - and I'll try to spend a bit of time on the board this wonderful long weekend....

Hatlady;
Oh how I love getting good news and your post was brimming with good news. I am so happy that your job is working out for you, and that you are finding a challenge as well as respect!
I am, especially, happy to hear that you are managing your Lupus and that it is not becoming a impediment. Keep taking care of yourself (and crab rangoon is allowed...you've earned it!) and keep that smile on your face (I could see it in your post). Can't wait to hear from you again!!

So Happy For You

I am thankful that it had a neck strap so that the when the wind blows it off it doesnt get to far away from me :wink:
