Thursday Thoughts ~ 4/8/21

First things first happy birthday to Buddy and Spot! Depending on who you ask there either 11 or 12 years old.

My mind is a whirling dervish. What’s that you say? How the hell do I know? I’m just MSU or making stuff up

I got a reprieve. My report due today has been given an extension. The necessary data is not available until the eighth of the month at the earliest. Unbeknownst to me I only had January and February numbers. They are giving me time to pull March data and further analyze it. So I’m very glad I didn’t stay late last night.

I thought things would get better with the extra time but nope. Back to back meetings all damn day. I’m freaking exhausted. We’re supposed to try no meeting Fridays and no meetings after 2pm Wednesdays. We’ve tried something like that before and it never lasts long. But the new guy has spoken. Let’s see if he can change things.

Now I’m going off the grid. I might read or listen to music. Anything to escape for a little while.

As always more to come.

G: Idiom of the day ~ 4/8/21

Starts with G- Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side

Jilly’s Take:  This reminds me of the Erma Bombeck book turned TV movie “The Grass is Always Greener over the Septic Tank”.  You might think someone else’s life is easy but you never know.  Many people put on a brave front.  Trying to make things look easy while things are crumbling behind the scenes.  Life is hard y’all.  Don’t cha know it.   Maybe this was a line from the book or maybe this is something someone once told me – “the grass is always greener but there are brown patches everywhere”.    That’s why I’m trying to “bloom where I’m planted”.  For more on today’s idiom LOOK here.
