When I am Talking…..

I had a meeting this morning to over the statistics for my department and to talk about some of the policies that I have implemented and how they are working.  Prior to this position, I would get trampled in meetings.  I usually sat there with my notepad and when it was my turn to talk I would usually find myself cut off or some other bullshit.  When I came to my new job, there was a new rule.  Put away the “nice” in meetings.  Our meetings are where we talk about ways to make each area more efficient and most recently integrating the EMR software into the office setting.  Today, while I was reviewing my policy regarding messaging with the software and in the middle of my review the black Regina George tried it.

Her: I don’t really think…

Me: I. AM. TALKING.  We can sing together, but we can’t talk together.  As, I was saying….

What you won’t do, anymore is talk over me.  For a long time I would just let people cut me off, shut me down and whatever the hell else they wanted.  Nope, nope, nope.  If you try it, trust and believe I will pull that shade down and NEVER let it back up.  Miss Thing apologized afterwards, and I bet you that will be her last time interrupting Miss Page.



Day three post half marathon and I am surprisingly feeling very good!  I will probably do a recovery run tomorrow and then start training for Hard Rock next week.  This time I will be SURE to get in a long run, now that I know what my half marathon pace is.  My goal is to learn how maintain that pace and not fly like a bat out of hell when the gun goes off.  This next half is special because I will be running it with my sister, which is something I never thought would happen.

Tragedy at the Navy Yard

Yesterday was a really hard day around here as there was a shooting at the Navy Yard, and 12 people were killed.  There were a few people n my office who had family members working down there and I watched as my co-workers struggled to get in contact with their family members to make sure they were OK.  Fortunately, they were all able to get in contact with their loved ones, but I kept thinking about those that didn’t get good news yesterday.  Someone sent their loved one off to work yesterday, not knowing that person would not come home.  This morning I made sure I hugged my kids extra tight and let them know I loved them before leaving them at the daycare for the day.  It is a shame that you aren’t even safe at work anymore.
