Bald, Bearded and Blue


I think I’m going to get my blogger license revoked if I don’t start posting more. Honestly, it’s been a rough couple of weeks and I just didn’t feel like going all “negative nancy” on my blogger peeps, so I’ve mostly stayed silent, waiting for the dark clouds to part.

Things at work continue to bother me immensely, I lost out on a job I thought I was a shoe-in for, and I’ve been too “on the go” lately, resulting in too little sleep and some annoying health issues. Not to mention my concern and worry for bfJim.

Today I interview for a promotion in another department of my agency. I’m pretty sure it’s a “courtesy interview” which, in state agencies, is what they do when they have someone they plan to hire but have to go through the paces of interviewing other people, regardless, to avoid any appearance of favoritism or nepotism. Either way, I’ll do my best to wow them and let the chips fall where they may. I’ve also applied for a variety of other jobs in the last week so hopefully, if I cast my net wide enough, I’ll snag something eventually. My husband was sweet enough to suggest I just quit my current job if I’m that unhappy, but I was raised to earn my keep and do my fair share and I just can’t lay the burden of our bills and expenses solely on Jeffrey’s shoulders.

After the interview, I’m heading back to CT to spend the weekend with Jim so his hubby can worry a little less while away in Ottawa for a work event. Jim is actually starting to show signs of improvement (yay), so we’re all a little relieved, but he still needs to get better than he is. (And thanks for all the well wishes, gang.) It’s hard being away from home two weekends in a row, but I’m glad I can be there for him/them. Anyone can be a friend when all is well and it’s all about parties, laughter and fun; but real friends are there when things go dark, to hold your hand and stick by you until the darkness fades. I’ve had too many friends who walked away when my life or health fell apart; I want to be a better friend, a better person, than that. Besides, Jim’s the only man in my life who makes a Cosmo as good, if not better, than I do, so my desire to help nurse him back to good health is slightly selfishly motivated. I just wish he didn’t think it was weird that I give him 9-10 sponge baths a day *giggle*

So there you have it. Be well, be kind, be sensitive, be safe and be yourself!

Peace, Love and Pride

    I know the feeling. I try to keep on the positive side and tell myself things will get better.

    Superman and I were talking just this morning about your cosmos. He likes them, too.

    Best wishes for a full recovery for Jim. I’m sure sponge baths help a lot. 😉

    I’m really sorry you weren’t chosen for the job you wanted. That sucks. In those situations I like to think it’s for the best in the long run, and what does come up is what’s meant to be. Don’t know how accurate that is, but it’s what I like to think.

    I love all your posts, no matter the frequency.

    The job I’m in now was my third try, both previous times, I thought I was the shoo-in, and both times was told the hiree “brought more to the table”. What ticked me off was that they didn’t, either time . Oh well.

    I hope the interview went well, though I understand the whole “we just gotta interview 3, so you’re IT”.

    And I’ll be happy to help running you in! Your sentence is a laptop and a blank blog, and one month to FILL IT UP! HAHAHA Otherwise, you might get spanked.

    Hope Jim gets better soon. Being sick sucks, but at least he’s got an experienced sponge bather to rely on!

    Peace ❤

    You have excellent writing skills. Always interesting reading your blog,


    • Sassybear says:

      Thanks, Ron. That’s quite a compliment coming from you. 🙂

      • Ron says:

        I mean it. Does your job involve a lot of writing?

      • Sassybear says:

        Actually, yes. I’m sort of an underpaid paralegal. I write a lot of case history, memos, e-mails and correspondence to parties so I’ve tried to develop my writing skills as much as possible. I’ve always felt a little insecure about my skill level, as no one has ever commented on it one way or another, so I really appreciate your comment.

    All is clear and understood, S/b. You’ve got so much going on in your life that it’s only reasonable that you should concentrate your energies where it’s most needed. When you’re ready for a regular return to your blogs we’ll be here. Meantime, positive thoughts for both Jim and yourself will continue. Go well, Handsome.

  8. Tony D says:

    hello, this is the blogger police. i have a warrant for your arrest. the charges are “infrequent blogging”. please come with me.

  9. c’mon jim; get better so I can taste your cosmos next to sassybear’s at next year’s blogger meetup! (only 349 days til…)

    I hear ya about being there during the dark times…my ex-spouse left me hanging when I was diagnosed with cancer; so did my immediate family. it’s a rare breed that can stand with you in good times and in bad.
