Celebrate with good sense
Hi everyone. I could write some craziness as things cross my mind all the time that bring a smile to my face. I guess this is a good thing, although sometimes I do have to question my sanity.
Just Friday my boss called asking me to come into work on short notice. I had ten minutes to get there because someone had called in at the last minute. Of course it takes me longer to get to work than ten minutes, but this would’ve been okay. The situation was I wasn’t dressed for work so I couldn’t just bolt to the car and get on the road. I had planned to spend the day finishing the calendar for my mother. So I said no, even though I rarely do that. There is life beyond work after all.
I felt bad about saying no because I honestly love the people I work with, the customers not so much because most of them are very rude and disrespectful toward us. But I would miss most of my coworkers immensely if I ever left there. One of them is leaving. Saturday was her last day so we said out goodbyes on Friday. She and her sister helped me so much when I first started there. I’ll always be grateful for that and will pay it forward to all the newcomers because it really helps to have someone on your side when you’re new and trying to learn everything.
Tonight I had finished the calendar, finally I might add, and I was feeling giddy because I have so little time for extra activities beyond work and daily life. I actually accomplished a big task I’d been working on for the last month.

I had to giggle at myself. Hubby was cooking dinner and told me to stop talking so I was fantasizing instead and thinking I must have the perfect job because it requires me to talk all day long. Now I know my brother-in-law would also have a fit because he always says my family was born with a phonograph needle in our mouths. Oh my! That is so funny, don’t you think? All of us are talkers and I can’t really envision life any other way.
