Food-wise and I still majorly addicted to sugar and carbs. I try to break the addiction and always binge around day 3 when my liver is depleted of glycogen and screaming for carbs. :( I continue to gain.
Work-wise things are not good. I can see they never will be good while boss J. is in control, micromanaging and nitpicking. At least by threatening to audio record our conversations he has stopped haranguing me and all other communication is by e-mail where he must be civil.
I'm not sure if I stated what happened at the meeting last week or not so I'll briefly recap. The meeting did not go well. The two other people there went the way of the world - managers standing behind managers, backing J. all the way. The only good to come of it was that I am now allowed online between 8:20 pm and 10:50 pm when I get off. Such a small amount but every little bit helps. It's not like I can really play Cafe World on Facebook anyway because my work computer is a Microsoft piece of junk. My Mac at home handles the game just fine. :) Macs rule!
The only bright spot in this mess is that I have once again been asked (for the first time is about two years) to write for the Helping Hand Bible study guide that my denomination puts out. The downside is that the editors evidently didn't plan well and are not far behind. They want me to write 5 week's worth of Bible devotions - the entirely of unit 1 for the winter quarter - in less than 4 weeks. It's due May 20th. Without Internet access most of the time I am forced to use a concordance to find parallel verses. I'll be writing on one passage when another pops into my head and I have to use a concordance instead of a much simpler Bible word find Website that would give me the verse instantly.
They have me doing mostly Old Testament verses, often in the prophets (mostly Isaiah). It's much harder to write those devotions. The Old Testament can be difficult to interpret. I am having to use my study Bible to help me understand. At any rate, it's more of a challenge than usual, though not altogether bad. I always learn something writing these and they allow you to weave personal experience into it.
What I have learned so far is that God wants me to wait on him. He will deal with J. in His own time. I know I do not want to be him on that day! God will do fix this situation and get rid of J., but that time it not here yet. I pray Psalm 13 almost daily, and today a verse from Psalm 27 popped into my head (hello concordance!). The whole psalm is another good one for me to pray, and it end with these words in verses 13 and 14: "I had fainted unless unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be on good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord (KJV).
Brad and I are still waiting for the front apartment to be finished until we can move in. Until then, we are stuck sharing my tiny apartment and I am trying to avoid banging my legs on his cot every night and I get ready for bed. :-p It's was supposed to be done by January 1 - what the fuck is going on?!? Grrr...
Well, that's all the news that's fit to print. Look in the links on the right for my Flickr photos and Facebook page. :)
