3/4/16 ftf, wren

My annual budget review with the boss went well yesterday.  I wasn’t even nervous.  My strategy, which I’d like to remember for next year, was to present my realistic projections to him so that he & I could discuss and plan, and then decide on the ways that I will “update” the budget so that it presents the picture the higher ups want to see.  This afternoon will be my meeting with the department director, and after that I can go home for the weekend and, I hope, put the budget behind me for this year.

My mom’s surgery is this morning, so I hope that goes well, of course.  I phoned her last night.  She seemed to be a little nervous, but her good friend was staying over, and my brother will be taking her to the hospital today, so that is all good.  I discussed “sundowning” with my brother so that he will know what to do if it happens.

I’m currently a little bit obsessed with this house as a retirement home…not that we’re all that close to retirement, but I can dream!




Happy Dog Time!

  1. Paws crossed for your mom’s surgery.

    The house looks great! I find the architectural style very interesting – it’s very different from the houses over here 🙂

    • That style of architecture is unique to the southwestern part of the USA. It’s something that I’ve grown up around, and I like it, but it would look strange anywhere else. 🙂
