Recent (or not-that-recent) good stuff:

     Last Wednesday, my first day back at work, I had my annual Performance Appraisal meeting with my boss. That went well...never quite know how a new boss is going to see things. Whoever that superhero was in that review write-up, it can't be me! ;) Hopefully I wasn't too red-faced throughout. (If there's any pay raise, I won't know until May.)

     Finally got my new bookcase assembled on Saturday, after the box sat around since November, ahem. Sure was nice to throw out/reorganize a bunch of stuff, and actually have a tiny bit of space for more books now. Won't last long, I'm sure.

     The set of three medical bills I filled out checks for on Sunday brings my 2011 vertigo-related medical expenses up to $826...not including the forthcoming $200+ bill for the audiology fun I had March 1, and anything beyond that. All this makes me the more grateful that I have medical coverage, and that I get those 'heads-up' mailings from my insurance provider, as it's a lot less stressful checking the mail each day when I'm forewarned of what's coming at me!

     And it was nice to have Dawn back at work today, as she's been out since the day of her surgery, March 10. She was happy with the beach sand from Florida I brought her as well. Now she has some from the Pacific AND Atlantic! =D

Wow, I'm surprised you made it this long without putting your bookshelf together. We're always desperate for shelf space here. On the other hand, you have been quite busy with all your travelling...

Congrats on such a great review!

And I do hope the vertigo clears up soon. Sounds like it has been quite expensive!

It's all the purging and moving of stuff to make space for the bookcase that was the issue...and too likely to flood while I was gone, so didn't want to wreck it right off the bat!


I sure hope the doctor has something for me today, instead of just being perplexed. ;)

Me too! It must be such an unpleasant thing to live with.

I know what you mean about finding space for the bookcase. I think I have a little one arriving from my grandma sometime and I still haven't figured out where I am going to put it.

I really like the new sidebar. The flowers and butterflies remind of
Bush Gardens.
I am sure looking forward to spring after all our rain and
cloudy damp weather. It is suppose rain for the rest of the week.
I am so thankful that we do not have problems with flooding here.

Things must been quiet at work with Dawn gone.

Thanks! Those grounds there were really gorgeous.

Wow, that seems like it's pretty late for you guys to still be getting rain. The farmers must be happy.

She was pretty noisy today, that Dawn! =)

Yes, I'm quite pleased with some of the shots I got. Also happy with the tiger ones, so I made an avatar of a white tiger too--used it for this reply.
