One of my co-workers experienced something this past week which really exemplifies the concerns people had regarding this past election....she got a call from her neighbor on Tuesday. This is their story so far....

Gay Pride Flags Burned.

She's afraid now. She is afraid of losing her protection and rights under the law, because she lives with her partner and they are both...

well, the shit storm which was the American Election cycle has ended...and now the aftermath will be that much worse possibly.

oh the joys.

wow, just realizing what the past year has brought for me. I was about 4 months into a new job, with my step-father retiring and my mom getting bi-lateral (both) knee replacement surgery. it was also the time I felt I needed to move to my own apartment. so in one week's time, there was the retirement, surgery, my mom being discharged and me...

my boss told me the other day I should do something nice for someone else (long story) to get good karma.

if I believed in karma, I should have good karma for years. I spent 2+ years as an investigator for Child Protective Services.

but still no good karma....ehh, whatever.

well, its been a while, so let's see where I can go with this one. some life updates you could say.....

the job is still busy. since I started last July (2015) we have hired 3 new people for billing, an IT support person, and someone to help implement a new project. we also have 2 new referral coordinators (what I do) and are...

a while back, I mentioned how my cousin's girlfriend wanted to fix me up with her old boss. figured we were a good fit (similar interests, we don't drink, etc.). at least I think I mentioned it. we were going to meet, her uncle dies. nothing for a while.

today, my cousin said she got fired, has disappeared, and probably won't see...

last night, finally saw Alice in Chains in concert. yes, I have been a fan since "Man in a Box" came out on video (I saw it and was immediately intrigued by the band). I probably should write down the bands I want to see live (and those I will never get a chance to see live, either because they broke up or deaths.....like...

so tomorrow starts a week of vacation for me....or as I should put it, a "stay-cation." the only thing I have planned for leaving is an Alice in Chains concert on Friday.

Tomorrow I'm organizing my Heroclix collection, so I can get doubles in a box and everything. my cousin orders the product through his comic book store, and we have some new...

After about a month, finally went through and put everything in my "checkbook"....I use an app on my phone, so I can enter the information and go from there. thankfully everything lined up and I didn't overdraw or anything.
