Of office email and a second blog

First, the follow-up with my surgeon went well today. I will be returning to work on Monday. Meanwhile, he told me the pain I have been experiencing in my shoulder and such has been caused by the gas he used to expand my abdomen so he could remove my gall bladder. That set my mind at ease, even if my shoulder is still sore. At least I know there isn’t a more serious cause . . .

I learned a good lesson during my absence from the office: I’ll never access my office email from home again. I don’t need the aggravation that can come with it . . . In other words, office business is best left to when you are in the office. I’m going to be very careful from now on about guarding and treasuring my private time.

On that note, I am going to start a second wordpress blog devoted exclusively to LGBT issues — since I have been writing about them for my paper, free of charge, since 2008, anyway. I’ll let you know when it is up and running.

Of course, this is my main blog, and I will continue to write about diverse subjects here outside of LGBT issues, with the odd pointer to my new blog.

But first, I need to catch up on sleep over the next few days.

Zzzzzzzz . . .

  1. Glad you are on the mend! Hopefully you will soon be kicking up your heels like you used to. I am thankful that none of the jobs I had were conducive to taking work home with me. My first job after I got out of the service was as a welder building road-construction equipment. My first job after I got out of college dealt with a lot of classified materials and information, so I couldn’t even talk about what I did at work. From there, I went back to work as a welder, and then went into facility maintenance. It definitely is nice to be able to leave work at work.


    1. I know what you mean about classified materials. I once dated a spy who couldn’t say much about his job outside of work. But he did tell me that he wasn’t allowed to take his cellphone or laptop into the office because they could be hacked or something.

      1. Cellphones and laptops didn’t exist when I was in that business. I was thankful for the IBM PS2 with a whopping 16 meg of memory in my office. I used to “hurl” lightning-bolts.
