A short diddy on perspective....

YES - I'm completely aware this is blog #3 today. 

This one is going to be short.  I just want to say there are:

86 days until the end of the year!  (in case you forgot)

Since I started reclaiming my health two days ago, I've lost 3 pounds.  YAY ME!  How are you guys doing?

Also - a little diddy on perspective.

Rambo emailed me to make sure I'm alright.  Said he was going to be busy today at the prison.  Then he emailed again saying "Erase that...today is going to be slow....we're on lockdown as of now."

I say, "Why?"....silently cringing at asking but wanting to know just the same.

He says, "Inmate came up with a lost earpiece on his glasses....that piece would make a nice shank.  At least it's on the seg unit."

*sigh*  Yah - thankfully it's not lost out in general population or someone would indeed be getting shanked rigth now.  Seriously - I'm sitting at my desk in heels sipping Pepsi. 

And tomorrow he does an armed escort.  Taking an inmate to the hospital for 6 hours.  Rambo is the button pusher on this trip.

That means he's the guy who contols the devices that throw jolts of electricity through the inmate if he gets out of hand. 

Again - perspective.  Sometimes it blows my mind.....

Also, awesome on the 3 pounds! I am officially back to eating healthy, see how much I can lose before surgery!

86 Days! Wow, I can't believe that! I can't wait for next year. It is going to be a year of greats for me, maybe I'll do a post on that! Thanks for the inspiration!

86 days!! where did the time go?! I plan on getting back- seriously- right after I finish digging out all the cookie crumbs from my jacket pocket :) How sad is it that I need to stash cookies in my pockets to get me through the work day?

crazy prison life! ahhhhhh! Rambo is brave, that's for sure.

Is it bad that Rambo turns me on? Hopefully it's okay since I am happily married, quite a few miles away and I know that I'm no competition for you.

Your 86 days left in the year stuff has really got me thinking. I just ran with the idea over at my blog. I can't believe there are only 86 days left! It goes by so quickly! Thanks for making me realize I need to make the most of it!
