running the roads

September 25th, 2006 at 08:09 am

I had a busy weekend. Saturday we went to a nephew's birthday party with all of the family. It was nice to see everyone and catch up a little. Sunday I had lunch with my college advisors (our little yearly gathering). They are both amazing women and it was lovely to see them again. Yesterday was a fabulous day for a drive - perfect weather, sunny but cool, and all the trees are changing colors. I enjoyed having a little time alone.

I finally had to track down the doctor to find out the results of my biopsy. They were still abnormal, so I have to have the abnormal cells frozen off tomorrow. I am not looking forward to it at all. My boss is questioning why I need to have this time off. We'll see if I'm forced to take vacation time for it, even though I still have sick time left and am planning ahead. I have never been treated like a problem employee before, and I'm not liking it (in fact, every boss I've ever had has loved me!). However, having pre-cancerous cells removed is far higher on my list, thank you very much.

My pottery class starts on Wednesday. I hope I am feeling well enough to attend. I am really excited about it!

Hoping to make it to an apple orchard next weekend. We have these delicious Honeycrisp apples here...they are incredible!! I'd really love to pick up a bag, and wander through an orchard for a couple of hours. Smile Perfect fall activity.

    Hope your procedure goes well. All you need is a cranky boss at this time. I hope you get your class in cos you sure deserve the relaxation of creativity.

    If you have sick time there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to use them for this procedure. Don't let your boss make you feel bad about it!

    the apples sound great; i've been enjoying some delicious early Macs here. Think i'll have one now.

    Is it possible your boss is trying to goad you into quitting because they are worried that you may develop cancer. They could be (unfairly) trying to get rid of you because of fear of rising health care costs. If this is true don't fall for it. People died to ensure that other people got sick and vacation time. Don't let your boss make you feel guilty

    Good luck with the freezing. I had to have that done a couple of times with respect to icky cells. Not pleasant but not that tramatic either. And so important to do. Email me if you want - I don't mind talking about it but not here.

    Is it time to start looking for a new job? Your boss sounds like an ass.

    Good luck with the procedure. Crap on the boss - you have only one body and there are many jobs.

    Might I suggest that you document your problems with your boss if you haven't already? Keeping a file on this stuff will make you feel a little bit more in control - and if you have grounds to sue (not legal to try and "Gaslight" you into leaving), you've got material. Lord knows, they're doing the same thing.

    Good luck with the procedure--and dealing with the sucky boss.

    Enjoy the apple-picking. Your entry brings back memories of when I lived in Michigan and would go apple-picking with my then-BF and then bring the apples to a cider mill. There's nothing as beautiful as a sunny brisk fall day spent outdoors.
