Wishing Things Were Different................



Well, fall is coming I think.  Perhaps our leaves will start to turn now.  The cooler air is starting to arrive.  Yesterday was rainy in parts.  Just a couple of lines of quick showers that came through - nothing stormy or bad here.  I think the hurricane stole all the atmospheric energy around.  It's waaaaaay to our east with this front scooting the remaining moisture away from us.  

I don't have much time this morning.  I have to go interview out of town.  It is not the best use of my time but one of our plants has become less efficient at doing their own direct hiring and it has befallen on us me somehow.  When I do this it ends up taking a huge chunk of my week.  You have to run the ads, go through the ads, call the center, set up the room, rearrange your own schedule, call and screen the applicants and set the interviews, drive all the way out there which will likely take me an hour and a half to get there or longer, and then only a few will show up, and then you lose them for whatever reason - drugs, b/g check, don't want to work, etc.  They'd rather remain on unemployment or drive for Uber/Lyft on their own hours.  So I have lost- I don't know how many hours- to get ready for this one day.  And my desk is suffering.  And people are going to have to wait now til Monday for anything from me b/c I'm on vacation tomorrow to get ready for Saturday's with people coming over to my house.  So it is what it is.  But it's not the best use of my time.  I'm not sure how long this will go on but it makes me sad to know that this is not the best use of my time and talents right now.  Which presents yet another thing to ponder and figure out.  Anyway it is what it is.  And like I've been saying - it's not really me that has to be so patient - it's everyone else waiting on things from me that they want.  That is who it's hurting.  Anyway, I have to go b/c this is going to take me a living forever to get across traffic to get there on time.  Geez!


Might as well be doing this instead.  lol



Ya'll have a good day and I will try to do the same.  There is a reward at the end.  

Oh I didn't get to go to the Salt Cave last night b/c they are closed on Wednesday's.  I think we have tried for a month to go now.  We are going to try again next week, maybe.  I have to look at the schedule.  Mani/Pedi tonight.  Then grocery.  Then home tomorrow to get the food and house ready.

  1. It is what it is and you can only do the best with what you've got for sure ! Sounds like a lot of driving so I'm praying for safe travel there and back. Nice you have a reward at the end of the day and even nicer is your day off tomorrow!
