I just slept for 8.5 hrs.......It has been a while. I had overwheming anxiety for weeks with so many things to get done. I skipped Fencing class last night so I could go to bed early.
The last couple of weeks were like whirlwinds. My daughter graduated from high school on Friday. She graduated as a "Honors Student".
We had a big party for her on Saturday and sooooo glad to see everyone! A variety of family & friends came from my cousin who lives in DC to a friend of my brother who became a friend of my daughter stayed until 11 PM. I knew Chris from VA could not make it but he still left a wonderful message on the phone for her at noon. We had a 1/4 keg of nonalchoholic Birch Beer for the kids. There was so much of a variety of food to stuff our faces. A few family members said our place was going to be the designated "party place".
Yesterday, I started my new responsibilities at work. My supervisor retired. He also acted as a go between or GM with corporate to answer questions for individuals. I got hit a few times already. Are people really so helpless?!! Our office lacks any HR or GM and my office is a target. The corner is looking good for my desk. I have been in training for 5 months and not sure if I can retain all there is to be done. I am half-a** (IT & facilities) moved at work which was to occur 3 weeks ago. Of course, I never got a raise to be doing my new responsibilities of someone making $15,000 plus more than me. Despite, I can say, "I have my own office".
I had to take a day off to attend K's college orientaion at Lyco today. Al will go solo tomorrow because I have too much work.
I had shot #3 of weekly series of Synvisc injections(injected directly into the knee joint to restore the cushioning and lubricating properties of normal joint fluid). I almost broke the needle off with a quick jerk because the needle hit the back of my kneecap. It hurt like a motherf*$#*&. Surgery is out of the question right now - I hope to buy a year of time. I told Dr D, if I can't ride then it was like the end of the world. The knee was not bending well to clip into the pedal. His comment was "keep on biking" - best exercise for you to do!!!

I feel really uneasy because I have not been able to get outside to ride. Only able to fit Spinning classes into the schedule. I snuck a ride in on Memorial Day. I had to turn Dag down on Sunday, which was really hard to do. I had way too much to do. The time will come.....!
