Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

This and that

On Friday my building had a holiday potluck party.  It was supposed to run from 7-9.  Since I arrived home at 6:30 tired and unprepared, I decided to opt out and relaxed on the couch.  Diva arranged for her Dad to come pick her up so she could spend the weekend with him.  He didn’t show up until 11 pm. I walked her downstairs to get him to sign a document.  As we walked out of the elevator, my neighbours still at the party, yelled my name.  Who knew this was a happening place to be.

Once Diva left, I went to the party and hung out for 1.5 hrs.  These folks did not want to go home.  There were many empty bottles on the table and lots of food still left.  It seemed like a good time was had by all.

I have a neighbour that I haven’t seen in a couple of weeks at least.  Her parking spot is empty and every time I see it, I get a bad feeling.  Well it looks like I was right.  According to her family members, she had a stroke while traveling in the US and is now in hospital in a coma and has been there for 2-3 weeks.  She is not yet stable enough to be brought back to Toronto.  This just makes me so sad as she is such a kind person.  Whenever I see her in the hall she would always tell me she is praying for me.  I guess now is my turn to pray for her.  Please feel free to add her into your prayers as well.

Today was another day that confirmed I really do need to change jobs.  My last day will be December 31 unless they walk me out sooner.  The politics in this place just doesn’t work for me.  I can’t wait to be gone.

On a completely different topic, I miss the sun.  It was another grey day, this time with rain.  It washed away most of the snow and what was left behind is now muddy and gross.  I don’t mind the cold what I need is bright light.  I even contemplated buying a wake up light to help me get up in the morning as this girl is dragging. I fought temptation and bought this instead.

Baggallini Everywhere Cross-Body Bag (EWY571-NALG) - Navy

I have always wanted this bag but the price was a bit much for a nylon bag.  But at almost 42% off sure why not.  I figure I can always return it if I don’t love it when it arrives, right?

  1. That bag would cheer anyone up 🙂 I’m glad you found out what was happening with your neighbour. Hope you can hang in there for the last two weeks of work!

  2. Merry Christmas, Sunny! Hope the Christmas break will help get you through those last few weeks of work. That is sad about your neighbour. Hope there will be an improvement soon. Have a lovely Christmas!
