#008080;">#008080;">George Sanders… bless his heart. And bless his family. He is an 86 year old man living in Arizona who was recently sentenced to 2 years’ probation after killing his wife. She had multiple sclerosis. Diagnosed in 1969… he was her sole caregiver all those years. According to the article, she has been in a wheelchair since 1971. I cried as I read this article. It hits home in so many ways. I have such a great respect for the prosecutor and the judge in this case. I cannot imagine the position either Mr. Sanders or his wife was in. She wanted to die… she wanted him to take her life. How devastating for him. But he followed her wishes. Anyway, I just had to mention the article.
Work has been uber busy. I like that. I created my database and got it working the way I envisioned. Well it’s mostly created. I have some more tables and things to add… seems that databases are very fluid in that they are always changing somehow. What I did manage to complete is a table of employees and a table of training, facilities, positions, and departments. This week I started inputting the employee information with their ID, position, department, facility, and training completed… I managed to add 997 so far. (total employees is around 3500 +/-). I’m really excited! By doing this I am able to pack away huge arse piles of sign in sheets and copies of certificates. When it’s time for our JC audit, I can simply run a report of training and give them what they ask for… quick! And without digging through mounds of paper. My fingers are not too happy when covered in paper cuts.
My project board is filling up too… I like that as well. I like that I can list things, diagram things, make notations and leave them up on my board for easy viewing. It really does help when I’m sitting and figuring things out. I do a lot of that. Thinking… working my way through processes and figuring out the cause & effect of each possible action in a situation. It’s a kick for me… don’t know why but I love it. I can’t tell you how lucky and blessed I feel right now.
I bought myself some new shoes for work. It’s important that they are flat but supportive, cool yet protective, and the icing on the proverbial cake is if they can be either water proof or designed to get wet. I found the perfect shoes! I couldn’t believe my good fortune.

And now it’s Friday.. my brain is fried. I’m wiped out. I worked today because I’m a new employee with no PTO available yet. It was only me and the janitor man in our building today. I think I startled him when I came out of my door…thankfully he wasn’t carry the bucket of dirty mop water or some ominous red bag of hazardous waste!
Oh, I took some pictures of a new baby last weekend. It was fun!
