Chapter 3, Page 10, Book 10

Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving

Albert Einstein

By mid week I usually feel like my energy is fading fast. It is a real challenge to get through the day but after it is over, I’m on a roll and before I know it the work week is over .

It’s no different this morning. I’m sipping the good coffee and trying hard to wake up here.

The boss has now done 3 interviews for my replacement and has another one to do today. He’s liked them all so making a decision won’t be easy for him.

I hope by the end of the week he’ll have decided so just maybe sometime next week I can begin training someone. I’m getting so anxious to be done with it all.

On one hand it is the same old thing day in and day out and on the other hand it’s exciting knowing I won’t be doing any of it for much longer.

It is WONDERFUL Wednesday! And I’m going to do my best to make it a great day!

I hope you are too!

‘On Ya’-ma

I'll bet you are counting the minutes. I remember when I retired I did that. And then for the first several months I felt as though I was on vacation. I didn't know what retired felt like so it just seemed like a vacation to me. Now I wonder how I ever found time to work and do the other things I do all day. Have a wonderful day.

that's good the boss has found people he likes to take your place. Now it will be nice if he can narrow it down sooner than later! I think once a replacement is hired, you probably will feel a bit less anxious about it all, but so good to know the end is in sight!

Hope that it was a good day. It is such a shame that the boss is taking such a time to decide who to have, I think he wll knows that he won't get anyone as good efficiant and trustworthy as you are...big changes for you all are ahead. Only hope you get on with whoever takes over that will be the hard part I think...
Much Love Sybil xx
