Firsts

First times are interesting. You never know what to expect. This weekend is lots of firsts for A. She met her grandpa on this side of the family as well as 11 more cousins she didn’t believe she had. It has been good for the most part as some of the cousins are a little more aggressive than others. They rough house a lot more than her and she gets emotional. She gets along well with grandpa and she likes the little cousins that she can watch over. She went to the beach with D without me because my headache wouldn’t give up. I walked with the dog. It is hotter in florida than I think especially when you walk around these huge residential blocks. We are going to A’s cousin’s house for dinner and I hope the headache breaks by then or it will just get worse.:)

Just be thankful you have a job…

ImageI  hate this saying more than any right now. I understand it and I know that we should all be thankful for the job we have. In that being Thankful, it is implied, by the one who is saying this, that there should be no complaints about things we need to do that may or may not be our job or the lack of responsibility on the part of others.

That is a load of crap!

Trying to move up or get more is frowned upon to the point where someone will say this saying to you. At least in this place.

Thankful to them also means to “just take it” when you are doing your best and yet raises have been frozen or the match on your 401k is eliminated, but we are supposed to just be thankful we have a job and be happy about it? What happened to making your employees happy so they are happy in their position and want to work hard and have good morale?  These things alone create job satisfaction which create better responsibility and better health.
