RBOC: A few updates from recent posts

  • The ankle- is better. I made a stupid mistake on Wed by not wrapping it and driving to work. Apparently driving really hurts when you sprain your right ankle and it's been a bit of a step back. I've been much smarter about this since then.

  • The dissertation manuscript- is not touched. I am thinking about where I would like to send it next, I'll get to it, but it's been so beautiful outside this weekend there isn't any way I want to be tied to my computer.

  • The job- I've made some decisions lately that have left me feeling a little better about my job and like I can make this work long term. I am going to continue to work on this contract through the end of the fiscal year (Sept) and then I'm going to start looking for my own contract, well I'll probably start looking before then but do not intend to take anything on until this fiscal year contract is up. The ideal would be a small contract that allows me to do psychology work and avoid working full-time on anything directed by my current FC. Then I'll have independence in my own small contract and continue to work with my current team who I adore and with whom I want to continue my relationship.

I think that's it for today. It's beautiful again so I'm headed out to get my hair cut and maybe to my nephews lacrosse game after some grocery shopping.

Always wrap the ankle! Mine didn't heal properly and has this odd bulge to one side - not pretty or healthy.

I'm happy to hear there's a plan in place for work - I hope it goes very well.

It sounds like you have worked a lot out! I'm happy to hear you have a solution for the work situation.

Glad you're finding a path through this mire and feeling more confident. At least you SOUND more confident!

Ow, on the ankle. Enjoy the weather, but carefully, carefully...

Katie- I know, I know. I was so stupid not to do it but I've been much smarter since then. :)

B & Mamabeek- thanks for the comments. It's amazing how much having a plan really can ease your stress.
