Right off the bat, let me say a huge THANK YOU for all your support - it's overwhelming to say the least. Reading all those encouraging comments has really made me feel stronger and braver, and so I called the potentials and made an appointment to talk particulars. (meaning $$$$ and benefits, lol!) So Friday morning keep your fingers crossed that we can see eye to eye, because if we do, I will have my resignation letter in my pocket and deliver it that afternoon. To make things worse, my clinical administrator who will be receiving that letter, was talking at lunch today about all the problems we're having. She mentioned one staffer in particular who is having marital difficulties and has missed a lot of work because of being so upset, (!!!) and told me she's just waiting for that person to quit - "That's all we need. I'll just shoot myself" Oh great. Of course that's a figure of speech, but all the same; wait till she hears this. See why the guilt? BUT -- nonetheless, it feels like Springtime and new starts:And I'm looking for inspiration so pulled these out to put together:
Not springy, but certainly a bright spot, eh? Then I got a call from a guy my DH works with, and he wants to commision a quilt!! My first comission! Yeee-Haawww! He'll be here tomorrow night to brainstorm ideas, but right now he's leaning towards a pink Strawberry Shortcake for his girlfriend.
His 55 year old girlfriend.
Yikes - I thought maybe a granddaughter, and almost choked trying to stifle a laugh when he told me she just LOVES Strawberry Shortcake. ROFLOL! Whatever! He says my DH told him the going rate for a made-to-order handmade quilt is around $500.00 and that didn't faze him in the slightest - even funnier!!! My good ol' Hunny; always watching out for me! Can you imagine??? Hey - at least I didn't have to be in that awkward position of trying to come up with a price.
Ahhh........I'm so hoping for an entirely different life a month from now, one that will allow a LOT more time and energy to do things I enjoy.
Friday morning, cross your fingers!
