September 8, 2019 - Oops...skipped a day and no real excuse
Sunday, September 08, 2019
I am up and then I am down...so much of my emotions, my weight, my sense of well-being, my 'security'. Ah, the weather shifted last night, cooling and this today promises to be 10 degrees lower and the humidity down as a low pressure area assumes command of the climate.
After church I shopped and found black Mission figs at the healthy market. Already had one and it was pretty darn good. Ah, I remember summer on the ranch/farm and the fig trees brimming with fruit that we ate right from the tree.
Something ominious on the work front. After meeting with her boss, my boss sent an email to see if my colleague & I were available for lunch at our favorite little dive down the street. It is a place we always go to celebrate (birthdays, good results, funded opportunities, raises, or just cause we wanted turkey tacos). When I replied Yes! I asked "Last Supper"? She replied Yes!
Initially, I was thinking my boss either turned in her retirement plans, quit or was RIFed. Now I am leaning toward thinking we are being moved - physically and/or to another department head.
I hate the anticipation of doom. So glad I am working toward a 3/1/2020 retirement. Tired of the culture of work in a large organization. So much for the USD's 'culture of care'. It's always about the money. Thinking sincerely of a total escape in the future.
