Scheduling Change...Crap!

So, today is supposed to be my day off. Unfortunately, my Manager has come down with diverticulitis and asked me to work for him today. I'll get my day off later in the week...but my schedule is all scrammed up today.

I was going to phone a friend in California who I wanted to catch up with for quite a while and we just couldn't work out the schedule, so we're putting it off again - for another week. One more thing that messed up for my day off.

I did get my weekly drabble written last night and posted on my writer's board, but I'm not thrilled with it. It's tolerable, but it won't go down in history as one of my knife-edged drabbles. Then again, it's hard to be knife edged when you're dealing with a young child and his father. It's not exactly battling the forces of evil with sharp swords.

So, if I sound a bit dispirited today, I am. It's temporary, and I know I'll get my day off later in the week, but I am a glutton for scheduling and my schedule just got blown away. So I'll concentrate on beauty instead, sharing pics of beautiful things with my readers instead. Equilibrium.....

The photos remind me of Ted Nasmith's pictures! :)

Good luck for the rest of the week. *fingers crossed*
They are stunning, aren't they? I love beautiful pictures, and love sharing them with my f-list friends. Thanks for the luck, I suspect I will need it :-)

I was looking for things like the teeth around Angband and the Misty Mountains, so I'm pleased that you found them to have a Middle Earth feel to them. Have a marvelous day and hugs to both you and Pip.

I get emails through IBS-Life from people who suffer from Diverticulitis. I'm so sorry for the poor man, or any-one with that.
I do feel for him. It takes serious pain to get him to the doctor, and he voluntarily went all on his own yesterday, sitting for several hours until they finally could fit him in. He's taking his medication religiously, he'll be on antibiotics for 10 days. Apparently his blood pressure is also quite high, although part of that may have been the stress over feeling so poorly, so he is supposed to check it again after the meds are over and then semi-regularly to keep an eye on it.

Of course, I always have very low blood pressure, I'm sure I have other things in my health future, but high blood pressure is not one of them :-)

I looked up diverticulitis on-line this morning to understand it a bit better, and it sounds truly miserable. He has my sympathy, and I thank you for your kind words.

Thank you. I love looking at beautiful things that nature has gifted us with. Even on my worst days, they buoy me up and make me happier. I would love to see places like this in real life someday.
