So, today is the retirement party. I am hoping that there is a decent showing of people, for his (service manager's) sake. He's a good old guy, he really should have retired several years ago, but he's a good old fart. He makes me laugh, and that i will miss. He also makes me miserable, more than anyone else that works there, and I will be glad that part is over. Mixed emotions.
I bought a car yesterday. It is strange, I haven't OWNED a car for more than a decade---H and I have had several, still have one in the garage, but I haven't had one for years. (just me...this car is mine.) In the car business, at least for me, I have driven cars that belong with the job---it has been very nice, no car payments, no insurance...no maintenance or repairs. But I thought if I am going to lose my job, then I will also lose my wheels, and I had better get one while I am still employed. I got a great deal, of course, ;) and it's a really cute little car. It's a couple of years old, but in good shape. Anyway, it feels strange to OWN one again. We brought it home and parked it in the garage and it will stay there until I lose the one I am driving.
I was just typing along....a power surge, the computer went off, I lost part of this post, Hmm..I wonder if this is the kind of day I am going to have....
I am running late today---kind of tired. But I am feeling pretty good---praise God for Cymbalta....my legs are working almost normally. Almost. I have considerable pain at night, but I can walk. :)
I don't have to lay off that employee after all, at least not now. We have been pretty busy, and that is always a good thing, I called him into my office and told him the truth, I asked him what he wanted, whether he would rather draw unemployment or work---he would rather work, so we changed his job position a little, he will be able to stay busy now, he is happy and I certainly am happy. He's a really good kid. :)
I think I'd better get moving----Have a really great day! Out.
