Sometimes people try to be funny and they are totally not! Today I was working by myself as my co worker is off sick. I was quite busy putting out printing requests all morning. I had 2 cart loads of paper to show for all my hard work. The new mail gal came by to take the mail(in service mail) and there happened to not be any mail going out cuz it's a friday and many people are off today. She said to me " what's going on here? Is A the only one that does any work around here?" I was taken aback by this comment. Really? You did not just say that to me!.... Right away I tried to defend myself by saying " what do you mean, I have been printing job requests like crazy! " I don't know this woman! She just started delivering the mail for depot 3 weeks ago. The more I thought about it the more upset I became. I don't know if I should confront this person and tell her that I was upset by her comment and that maybe she should think before she speaks. Was she only trying to be funny and make conversation? Does she really believe that A is the only one that does work around here? I'm the type of person that bottles things up and that is not good for me. Maybe I should kindly tell this woman that her comment offended me and clear the air and get on with things. I just don't know! What would you do?

I'm having a wonderful time with my sweet little grand daughters. My son and his wife Jen are away in Mexico and I have the privilege of looking after their precious girls. I slept over on Saturday night as their flight left very early in the morning. I was a little apprehensive as to how my little 2 year old granddaughter would be without her mommy and daddy. When she woke up I was greeted with lots of hugs and snuggles and " Hi gramma" She did how ever ask a few times where her mommy and daddy were. I just reminded her that they were on a trip and that they would be back soon. She was okay with that. My fear was that I would have to face an inconsolable little babe and I too would be a mess. So far not the case. I am home right now because the girls other set of grandparents came to be with the girls for the middle of the week while I go to work. I will relieve them on the weekend again until Jen and Jordan get home. We have arranged to pick them up at the airport. That will be exciting for the girls and me as well ! I know that Jen and Jordan will be so excited to see their girls greet them as they get off the air plane!
