We’re in the midst of a winter storm, although at this point the storm is producing rain, not snow.  I’ll keep an eye on it and make a decision about going to work, based on road safety.  I wish it was more clear cut, with inches of snow already fallen, because I would not mind a mid-week day off!

Another day, another outrageous move by Trump.  Will it ever reach a point where the repubs will decide to put the good of the country and the world first and take action to stop him?  It seems as if the answer is no.

I’m doing some interviews today, which will take up a good bit of time.  There is a winter storm warning for tonight and tomorrow, and I just had the now tires taken off my car!  I will work to get things in order so that I can work from home on Wednesday, if need be.

Yesterday got off to a rough start.  I took the dogs for an early morning hike and was surprised to find how high the streams were all running.  I kept crossing streams that usually don’t exist, getting deeper and deeper into it, until the trail itself turned into a stream.  At that point, my boots were soaked and squidgy and it seemed better to just keep going.  The sound from the rushing water was loud, which I think contributed to me getting lost from Elbee.  I was three miles back into the woods, and she was not coming when called, which is highly unusual.  I kept imagining her hurt or stuck or even attacked by some wild animal.  As I searched for her, I phoned J, who drove out to help and found her waiting at my car.  What a relief, and what a good dog!

I dd speak with my mom yesterday, which was Mother’s Day.  She was very pleased with the tulips and book that I sent her (the book is a history of dictionaries, which is right up her alley), so I was glad for that.

This morning is going to be all about onboarding a new employee and meetings.

It was also quiet, as expected, at my office yesterday, and I managed to complete a few key tasks.  Today may not be as peaceful, since the boss will be around, but I’ll do my best. 

All of the Cheeto’s nonsense and horrors continue, and his approval ratings drop ever lower.  In the midst of his many dangerous and libelous lies, he crazily stated in an interview with The Economist that he had invented the expression “prime the pump.”  He must have serous mental health problems.

I spent most of yesterday in impromptu meetings, which meant that I completed very little of my desk work, but I did manage one big accomplishment from all of the meetings, so that’s good.  The boss is in clinic all day today, so it should be a quiet one.

Yesterday was extremely hectic, and there was one strange miscommunication after another.  The last-minute grant submission went right down to the wire and was stressful.  I hope the boss has learned his lesson and will be more proactive in the future.  Even after the darned thing was submitted, there were more errors identified, so I’ll probably be spending a good chunk of time today trying to fix them.

It’s extremely unsettling to watch as Trump sets himself up to be a dictator with the apparent goal of lining his own pockets and ego.  This is not the country that I’ve always known.

Yesterday’s Momentous Accomplishment was that I paid off the mortgage on our house, so we now own it free and clear.  I have been saving away and was able to pay off about three years of mortgage payments in one day.  Now I have to get busy replenishing my savings!

As expected, the day was hectic with lots of last-minute grant proposal things, and the boss’s secretary was out, too.  The boss has really put this off until the very last possible moment, which means it won’t be submitted until today.  On top of that, the power went out for about an hour, rendering us all helpless.  It was amusing the way everyone was darting into my office in a panic asking, “What do we do?!”

This morning will no doubt include more last minute grant details.  The plan is to have everything ready by 10:00 am.  Of course, the original plan was to having everything ready a week ago!  Anything beyond getting the grant in is gravy.
