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!
