Pins and Needles

Today - my first appointment with the acupuncturist. When I reminded Chief of that, his emails became riddled with needle humour.. he just loves to poke at me that way - [right back atcha, dear!]

Started into my new group at work - this is either going to be interesting, or I'm going to want to just scream in a month. One of the reasons I was told I would be moving, was that I wouldn't "wilt" under the pressure. This, my friends, is code for "this group is full of either crazies or arrogant, misogynistic jerks (what, attorneys?.. no, you can't be serious {snark}) and because you are an old broad who won't let them reduce you to tears, or work until 3:00 am to satisfy their ridiculous last minute requests [really, one of the younger paralegals did that, and then slept at the office!], we will put you in this group and know you won't quit." I keep telling myself it's a job, it's a job, and I'm grateful to have one.

This weekend I set off to the midwest to check on the house, get some eyes on the place and see what really needs to be done, meet up with a few old friends... and while I'm flying get some writing done.

talk to y'all later.

Yeah, you're not a wilter.

Keep us posted on the acupuncture -- I'm curious!

Acupuncture? I'd like to hear more about how that went when you get a chance.

Have a good mini-vacation!!

Thanks for the comment about my house :)

Oh, I hope the acupuncture helps! AT the very least it will give you a break from the potential work drama - like Bette said, you are no wilter!

Don't know why I never thought of USAA. I've been really pleased with them in other areas.

And I discovered when I got to actually doing the fraud alert that I'd only need to call once. That was very nice.

Thank you for the tips! I hope you have a good trip.

How did it go?! Here's hoping you got poked and lit up with moxa (and the smell didn't start a headache!) and you fell peacefully asleep.
Safe travels!
