Time for my annual "crappy christmas" post.
This is not to say that I don't have anything to be merry about. Lori is still in fair health. Ava is happy and doing very well out in Seattle with her. I will be getting a visit from both of them on Saturday.
So what's crappy?
Well, Lori's health. I went to Seattle earlier this month, and I could see a noticable difference just from when I saw her in September.
My health. I am currently on short-term disability leave from work.
Which brings us to, my job. My wonderful job that I loved. My job responsibilities have been changed to something completely different than what I was hired for, and I'm not qualified for it nor am I good at it. My type A personality likes being good at what I do.
The economy. I'm trying to find a new job, but they aren't a dime a dozen out there. And the ones that are out there only want to pay $10 an hour. Might as well stay on disability.
Xmas dinner. My maniac brother is going to be there, which means that there is a better than good chance of a family argument at some point today, probably ending with him stomping out, as usual.
So, my hopes are that the new year brings amazing discoveries in medicine and new economic opportunities for all of us.
And that your Christmas is not crappy.
