An interview, and the Walk for Life

Hi everyone.  I'm still alive. I treasure your comments and read them via e-mail in my spare moments at home.

Brad was kind enough to share his cold with me so now we are both sick. His cold is now bronchitis and my cold is just a nice healthy cold. Up until today I have been able to do some walking in between rain showers and the fresh air did me some good.  Today it has been a steady rain and not only am I feeling worse, but I had to take the bus to work because of the rain.

I haven't been sleeping well.  I woke up at 6 am and was unable to get back to sleep.

As for work, I've taken as much time off as I can get with my cold.  I got off two hours early on Monday and Tuesday, managed to get Wednesday off, and am working a half shift today.  A big thanks to L. and S. for making that time off possible!

As for my boss, things are still in the works.  Bill talked with me earlier this week and said he'll talk to boss J. today; we will see if that actually happens and what, of anything, comes from that.  I called the Mr. Camping's secretary about setting up a meeting with him. It is clear to me that Bill can not do what needs to be done so I have to go straight to the top.  There is no higher authority within Family Radio than Mr. Camping.

Tuesday afternoon I was interviewed by Michael Finney of the local ABC Channel 7 news.  He does the "7 on your side" consumer advocacy.  I received a Facebook message from him and we set up the interview.  It was about the Snuggies scam I fell prey to a year ago.  I asked him how he found me and he said it was through what I had written here on my blog.  He couldn't find a way to contact me on the blog, but finally tracked me down on Facebook.  I think the interview went okay and the segment should air sometime next week.  :)

The Walk for Life is this Saturday and Brad and I are planning to go.  I hope I feel better by then. This will be our third time attending. I have no way to posting links without Internet access at work, but just do a Google search on "Walk for Life West Coast," and you'll see what it's all about. It's held every January on the Saturday closest to the Roe v. Wade anniversary, which means cold, drizzly weather is just about guaranteed.

So yeah, I'm still alive, just depressed and sick at the moment. I think the stress at work is what made me sick because I have been healthy and have avoided every illness this winter - until boss J. went on his latest rampage.

Praying it will be better in time. God's promise is that He will prevail and His people will be blessed.

Hi Victoria!

I have not been on your blog for a while - probably because I've abandoned low carb eating and I'm back to counting points which is working very well for me. I spend all my time on the Weight Watchers forums. But for some reason I stopped and thought of you! I am so sorry to see how you depressed you are. I suffer from depression as well, so I totally relate.

I will keep you in my prayers. You'll feel better once this awful weather goes away.

God bless.

You remain in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you get well soon! Walk with Jesus and know that lots of people do care about you.

Peace be with you.

I'm up in Nor Cal right now, and I thought I'd look into it, but it looks like I was too late. You'll have to let us know how it went.

Please be careful about naming names in regard to your employer and other employees. I don't want anything else bad to happen to you when it comes to your job! People Google themselves, their employers and their bosses all the time. If the news anchor found you, someone at your work can!!

Here's hoping Mr. Camping doesn't become so overwhelmed with his date-setting that he decides peace-making at the workplace doesn't matter.

There's one reporter at KGO that I still consider a good friend, even though I haven't talked with her in years. I left my heart with Lyanne Melendez.... but I'd better stop there. :-)
