Yes the time of seasonal shifts is upon us. The period were parts of the world start the trio of decorational shifts. First will be the festive celebration of frights and ghouls...Halloween. Followed by the quick shift into a harvest theme and finally the transition into December's celebrations. No wonder the world is tired, at least the western hemisphere, when the New Year arrives. But that is yet to come. I had two startling events and Noah's flood happen today.
I awoke at about 6 am and did not feel like facing the day. So I collapsed and dreamt. I was back in my store with Adam and Candace from the Corpus store and all of the crew from current workplace. Everything was running along and all of a sudden I realized I had not scheduled anyone for trucks...thus outside the back door there had been all these eighteen wheelers dropped off and left as no one was there to unload. I awoke in a shock as up until just after midnight I was adding hours to October's schedule. Not something I have done for real since October 2006. Maybe that is why it was Karma. Working way too much this week and then staying up late messing with numbers. I am not so good with numbers as any of you who have read my blog realize. Thus it took quite a few moments for me to fret myself back into sensibility and realize that all was OK.
After this startling wake up call the floods came. Only in the kitchen while I cleaned my CPAP mask though. Again it took me a while to realize my feet where swimming. What....OMG. There was water everywhere. Thankfully I was able to stop the flood, move the animals into the arc and head off to another time and dimension. Actually I mopped it up, got most of the pipes secured except one and contacted the office. Needless to say that was when they opened at 9 am and they SUCK. They are now all gone home and I even followed up at 4:00 when I got home and still nothing. If I had a way to move on December 1st I seriously would consider it. But I like where I am at and I have moved so much I just want to stay still for a while.
But after all that had calmed down there was a text from my boss. He NEVER texts. He wants to know if, even though it is my day off, if he can buy me lunch. What to do? Oh crap am I in trouble? Hmmm....let me feel this out. text, text back, text, text back. OK I guess I am meeting him for lunch. Take a breath...move on with my life.
That is a learned trait this year. I learned to deal with stress before all of this but now I have this mechanism where I look at the situation. Is there anything I can do right now to impact the future ... no. OK. Breathe. Why worry about that which has not happen and then keep on going on with your life.
Things like that happening out of the blue manage to startle me sometimes and with the morning that I had had knocked me back for about 15 minutes or so. But all is good. I got some great feedback on what I need to do to move up and this really was a thank you for all the hard work. He has his moments where I see into his mind but then it quickly snaps shut.
So now I am waiting.
An old friend I have not seen since probably 1987 is on her way here. It was a snap judgment after a question and an offer yesterday and well it is to be another adventure. I am excited to see her and have thought about so many things to do tomorrow on our one day together but we will see. I have planned nothing as planning is not what I do.
Well just thought I would say hello to all.
