Getting ready for December

Can you believe that Nablopomo is coming to an end? I have had such a great learning experience that I have decided to continue with the posts, though I will most likely take one or both weekend days off. I feel like the challenge of creating content on a daily basis has really helped me in my writing.

One batch down,

And one to go. Today has been one of those days when I feel like more than one day has taken place. One of my card batches is just about done and then I have one more to complete. Then it is on to dinner and our other adventures.
Yesterday I learned that I need to be more aware and appreciative of the people who help me. I thought I had learned that lesson, but I found myself learning it again. Sigh.

Lifers.

Until a couple of years ago, my father worked for General Motors. He worked for the company for 40 years and we were always certain, for better or for worse, that he’d work there until he died. A cancer diagnosis led to his decision to retire. I always had a feeling that I would not have that long tenure with a company, unless I went into education or started my own business. I’ve been right so far, but if I find a remarkable workplace upon my return to the 9 to 5 world, I’d be open to staying. In this economy, having the same job for 20 years or more is more of a foreign concept, but it still happens in America. I wish it happened more.
