I overslept by an hour this morning. Why I am blogging is a mystery. I will surely be late for work. Now that I am a department director, I have people noticing my every movement, so I try to be on time in the morning and to stay late in the evening. Not today.
Yesterday afternoon I went to a party/clothing swap at my coach’s house. I got there late, so missed any nice clothing in my size. But my real purpose was to thin out my running gear. I have poured thousands of dollars into running gear. I have so much that I often find things I don’t even remember having. Yesterday I piled up a bunch of those things, washed them, and brought them to the party. I was so happy to see a young woman pick through my things and find an outfit for her first marathon! At that moment I didn’t feel quite so foolish for spending $100. on a top that I never wore. She will have it and it is gorgeous! (and I will work into old age to pay off the debt that I accrued on these and many other things.)
I am having lunch with my former boss today. She called and asked and I said yes. I see no reason to be hateful, even though she did some real damage. I have always been extremely honest with her and I will continue to do so. She actually uses my criticism to make some changes. Not enough changes for me, but she is young and still has a lot of fundamental learning to do.
And I need to learn to get to work on time, so I gotta go………
