In other news, I was surprised last week to learn that our supervisor, who has been here only about 18 months, is leaving us for a library closer to her home. I know she had a long commute, so I can certainly understand. Still, I am a bit disheartened. We are going to once again be short handed in the department while they meander their way through the hiring process. We will once again have to get used to a new supervisor. This will be my fourth supervisor during my time here. I guess that isn't entirely unreasonable in 9 years, but sometimes it feels unreasonable.
In selfish me news, I am feeling a little disgruntled. It can be so hard to keep in touch with DR sometimes. His cell phone reception is very poor, so there are times when I will text and not hear back and it is just because he never got the text. Or, if we want to talk, he has to go sit out in his garage. I mean, he does have a house phone and we use that at times, but then he is always uncomfortable with his mom sitting right there. Unlike me, he is not used to having nearly everyone of his moments monitored by someone else. We can't IM, because he has dial up and it is nearly impossible. We rarely email, although when we were first getting to know each other years ago we emailed a lot. I don't know. I'm trying to be patient.
Alright! I'm sure the week ahead will be filled with happy dancing tiny furry bunnies and rainbows and the sweet scent of orange blossoms. Thinking positive!
