Sinky Feeling

Lately, work has been tumultuos with proposed changes. Nobody likes change. I am no fan of change in the least. I wish to give the reader insight into how much I tolerate change. It was a big deal for me the year work forbid the use of blue ink on paper documents.
Let me outline the nimbus clouds in a gathering storm at work: an added workload due to shortage of staff, hiring freezes, cases unraveling at the seams, swirling rumors about office relocation, reorganization, and shifting job duties.
While scrapbooking this week, I came across this picture of myself at the Titantic musuem in Nova Scotia, Canada. I looked closer at the picture of me relaxing on a replica lounge chair from the doomed ship. It fit my sentiments exactly.

Somebody throw me a life jacket. My job feels like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titantic.

There is a great line in the movie, "Fight Club" about polishing the brass on the Titanic...same thing I guess.

But you never know, all of these proposed changes could be on hold for a very long time what with the US Attorney General investigating our former Mr. Davy; and our new Governor wanting some accounting about the actual costs all of these changes are going bring...

Then again, I'd still keep my life jacket on.

That is just it. Too much brass in all the wrong places can be a tragedy.

The more things change the more they remain the same.

I also am not a fan of change or polishing brass on the titanic or anywhere else for that matter. I suppose it comes down to a willingness to live life on life's terms, whatever that might mean. For the most part, if I can just relax and roll with it, things go ok.

Joe, It must run in the family. I HATE change. You work for the Gov. as do I. Since I may loose my job (because I'm injured) in May, I have taken on the attitude of just taking one day at a time. Try it you will feel better. And one thing Joe "Never let the Bastar-- get you down." Can't say bad words on a blog, I think. Love ya, Catherine Mary

Catherine Mary,

Right now it is 1:30am and this day has bled into the next. one day at a time with occasional spillage.
