Wow! Has it really been almost 2 months since I signed in last? My bad! I’ve had so much on my mind lately.

First and foremost is my mom. She fell backward when she bent down to pick up a paper that fell off the table next to her recliner. It was 3:30 on a Sunday morning. She had fallen asleep in the recliner and had gotten up to go to bed. I woke up because I knew I’d heard something. It took me a couple of seconds to realize it was some kind of a thumping sound, as well as her voice. Fortunately, she was ok, just a little sore. I phoned my sister who lives a few minutes away. She and my nephew came over to help me get her off the floor. I’ve repeatedly told my mom to leave things on the floor whenever she drops them. I had bought a gadget to pick things up but she never uses it. Maybe this will reinforce the drop / don’t pick up rule.

It’s funny how things happen. Both my sister and nephew were wide awake when I called. He had slept for a while Saturday evening because it had been a long work week and had woken up before I called. My sister had also woken up because her arthritis was bothering her. My brother-in-law was overtired and since we didn’t need his help, he went back to sleep.

I had my second colonoscopy within about 2 months on Tuesday, with a third one expected 2 months into my future. The doctor removed most of the large (30mm) flat polyp but didn’t get it all. Too much blood blurred his view. He’d told me that might be a possibility. I’d stated earlier, “There ought to be a law about having 2 colonoscopies within 2 months.” Well, substitute 3 within 6 months. :)

My last bank conversion for CD’s was last Friday. We’ve temporarily run out of new banks at work to convert onto our product. We’re going to take this time to enhance, fine tune, and learn. I’ve already added new validations to a post-conversion program. I’ve also added additional data to the post-conversion summary recaps. Management wants to make sure they’re not paying us to sit around and twiddle our thumbs. I don’t know anyone in my group who would do that. We’re all a bunch of go-getters who wouldn’t expect to be paid to do nothing. Our immediate manager knows that but it’s the upper managers who are worried. As good as our conversion record, they should know better.

All the things I missed about Josh by not signing into FOJG: New PBS special, Hollywood Bowl. I’m still waiting to hear about new membership for year 6 (and a half :) ).

Time for bed. I’ll sign on tomorrow, well, since it’s after midnight, I’ll sign on later today to check out other journals.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Please take the time while having fun to remember our veterans.

God bless us, everyone!
