Day one of the new year. We are all a little tired. Eleanor is almost two months old and we have been struggling to keep up with her schedule. Gwendolen is in heaven. She can’t seem to get enough of her little sister. It has been cold here lately. For some reason it hasn’t bothered me much. It is cold by Oregon standards but not some much compared to anything in the Midwest. There isn’t much to report really. Work has seen some newcomers and we are all trying to get used to them. One of our long time employees is quitting and that will take some getting used to. I don’t really think she is quitting because of me but I always have to wonder. When it comes down to it now it seems to be about money and hours but I have to wonder what made her look elsewhere in the first place. It seems that it might have been a little stressful with regards to the past couple of months and with little in the way of satisfaction. Maybe I haven’t addressed issues fast enough. Maybe. But in reality they are issues that will not change so why waste effort. I don’t think she sees it that way. I think she thinks I should jump on people more, that I should be more assertive. That’s not really me though. Oh well, back to the well and see what we can get. Let’s hope it will be someone special.
