it stinks. *This is a Whine Alert - you have been warned!* Last Friday, the woman I work with (and have for 14 years) told me she had accepted another job offer and would be leaving in two weeks. This is a bad thing. There are only four of us in the office and she is the only attorney. AND, most importantly, she is the only reason I can stand my job. I can only see three options, now that we're down to three people and two of them are administrative: close the office; hire someone to come lead this outpost (can't see a line forming...); or merge our office with another small firm.
Then I went to the podiatrist - where I had checked (I thought) my new coverage with my new health insurance company. I was informed after the doc had seen me that, since I wasn't diabetic and I wasn't ill - only my initial visit would be covered. From now on, I would be on my own. Hmmm. Maybe I should have known this before the x-rays??
I have been planning a short, but much-needed vacation to visit Sylvia in Maine. My sister is my homestead-sitter and we had gone over the logistics ad nauseum. She went off on vacation and, being the nervous type, I emailed her 100 times to make sure everything was hunky-dorey. Sunday, she called me to tell me she could no longer do it - they had changed her schedule, since she hadn't formally asked for the time off, she didn't get it.
There, I'm done whining. After a bumpy holiday weekend, I have finally made my peace with the fact that there are things in my life over which I have no control.
On the upside of the weekend, I got to spend a lot of quality time with my favorite beekeeper and road trip partner, Marianne. She managed to last through six, 12-hour days at the local county fair. I discovered that being GF keeps me healthier - I was only able to eat a baked potato and it was good! We both make sure that we buy our food from what Marianne calls the "wooden" buildings. Those are the locals. My delicious potato came from the nice ladies at the Methodist Church.
