Thoughts On Thursday

  Have you ever heard the quote : "The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray" by Robert Burns?
Don't you just hate it when you make plans and they don't work out?
I do. Although, as I get older, I am a tiny bit more tolerant of a changes in plans, just a tiny bit. 
When I have my heart set on it, I want it to happen!
....Unless it is a doctor or dentist appointment, I have even been known to change those of my own volition. 
my plans have changed.
As I left work today one of my bosses had a question for me....
would I be willing to stay on another month to train a new person?
The woman who was hired at the beginning of February just doesn't seem to be working out.
She is making too many mistakes with money matters and I'm not sure if she cares. 
I told the 2 owners that I could stay until the end of May, but I do have a short trip planned and I don't want to work everyday.
It may work out to my advantage social security won't arrive until later in June and that would be over a month without any income. 
Wish me luck with whatever happens!!!

This photo is from our Tuesday night Red Hat meeting. 
I have a purple hat and red clothing on because it's my birthday month.
The restaurant gave me and Gwen a large piece of very good, chocolate cake for our birthdays. That was an unexpected treat!!! 
The 2 other birthday girls were not able to attend the meeting.


  1. I am the I get older I am more resistant to change. But I am seeing that I need to get out of my comfort zone more often.

  2. I hope it works out for you, Linda, with working the extra few days here and there. I am so sorry that the girl you hired isn't working out. I know you had high hopes for her. Happy Birthday to you!!!! xo Diana

  3. I used to get more upset about changes than I do now. Most times, for me, they are good for me. Things turn out better than if the original plan had been followed. You can save that money from the extra month to use with your passport!
