Here I am, at the start of our supervisorless time at work. My old boss, who moved up, stopped by this morning to just remind us that she will be handling paper worky stuff and all important decisions. Unfortunately, she felt the need to say a couple of sort of insulting things about my boss that just left and that made me uncomfortable. I predict that they are going to be a lot more careful to make sure that they next person they hire to run this department is a virtual clone of my old boss, so there won't be any conflict...and there won't ever, ever, ever be any changes. This is a very timid organization.
On the fun side here, we had a big program on Saturday featuring a sled dog team, the musher, all this cool equipment. It was packed full and everyone seemed to love it. It went really well and there was a nice write up in the local paper about it. Apparently not everyone loves the Iditarod though. Today a letter came in the mail asking us to stop "sponsoring" the Iditarod, as it is animal cruelty disguised as a sport. Is this true? I don't know enough about it, although the animals I saw were obviously well cared for and friendly, unharmed.
So anyway, life will go on here. At least everything at home is going fairly smoothly right now. Handsome Lad had a basketball game yesterday. It was fun because they played the other team from our city that is in the league...and they won! All of their games are on Sundays, which is kind of odd, and probably not good for some people. I like it. Since I work every other Saturday, I had thought I'd miss half the games, but I needn't miss any of them. I also think it is nice that Handsome Lad is finally playing a more team oriented sport. He has been interested in skateboarding, running, and cycling. All excellent sports, but more individual. And I can very much understand his interest. I actually really like the idea of individual sports, where you are really competing against yourself. But it is nice for him to get the experience of playing with a team I think.
Hope you all had a good weekend and are ready to face the week ahead with fire and passion! Or at least firm resolve. Or maybe even righteous resignation? Whatever it takes :-)
