Monday Monologue #18

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • I know that it’s still only the last week in January; but I am so ready for winter to be over. I don’t mind the cold weather. Or wet, gray, dreary days that go on forever. But the prolonged combination of the two has been extra draining. I want some warmth and/or some sunshine!
  • It warmed up enough on Sunday that we could run outside; but, we had to run in the neighborhood since all of the paths in the park were still covered in snow. It really brought back memories. It was just like when we got started, except that we ran faster and longer that our first few workouts.
  • Yet another one of my co-workers has given notice. I’ve been attending a lot of going away parties recently. It will be interesting to see if management does anything to stop the bleeding or if the exodus continues.
  • I should have known better than to buy anything at Wally’s World; but, I took a chance on an inexpensive mustache trimmer. Of course, it wouldn’t even turn on when I got it home. So I had to return it; and ended up trimming my mustache with the full-size clippers that I used to cut my hair with. I will not be purchase anything else there for a long time.


  1. I’ve been able to do a bit of geocaching (mostly park-and-grabs) but the weather has really put a crimp on that. I need some vitamin D!!

    Turnover has always been pretty high in my field, along with burnout. This is the first place in my career where I’ve stayed longer than five years (now over 11) and the management is a big reason for that… it really does make all the difference to be listened to and supported!

    • Kazi: I stay where I am at; because, in my field, the grass is not as green as it looks on the other side of the hill. A fair number of people come back, or move on again. I want a new gig; but it has to be MUCH better, not just something that I talk my self into.
