Hi guys, welcome to another Friday.

I was looking at someone else's snarky blog (nobody who visits here). It was cute, but maybe I just wasn't in the right mood for it. Then again, maybe it just didn't suit my sense of humor. My boss thought it was hysterical (which is why he told me to take a look at it). He thinks the writing is terrific.


OK, one of my new goals/resolutions is definitely having mixed reviews.

I am generally fairly non-confrontational -- particularly when I have to interact with the person on a regular basis. It has to be a pretty serious matter before I'll bring it up. Otherwise, why shovel excess defacational matter? Because, let's face it, nobody wants to hear that you think they were wrong about something -- because if they thought it was wrong, they WOULDN'T have done it.

BUT one of my resolutions is to take more control of my life and stand up for myself a little better. The thing is, no matter how nicely you try to do this, most people who interact with you are fairly invested in the status quo. Even if they think they want you to do more, they want to choose what more you do. It doesn't work that way. If you're going to be more assertive, it will probably have to be across the board. So, I'm running into some friction across the board, and the question becomes "What do I do about it?" Do I go back to the background, or live with the friction until they "get used to it"?

I haven't decided. I have responsibilities, but I also have to be true to myself. It's something to think about.


Did the first half of my goal setting. Now comes the hard part -- the plan on how to reach them and the back up plans, and the list of things I'm willing and NOT willing to do to get there. Wish me luck.


Looking forward to a weekend. Book is going well, mostly.

Sorry this is so disjointed. But that's the way my mind is working today. Very short, harsh, impatient thoughts. Not good. Definitely not good.

Hi Cie, Cathy, Yolanda,
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Things here are going good. I was on vacation and had a gret time in warm 85 degreeish type tropical weather (fun times). I wish I were still on vacay now, but I go back to both jobs again tomorrow (ouch!).
