Concrete-uuhhh, Custard!

So, today solidified all of my fears, misleading thoughts, issues, etc., with quitting my current job. Yes, I have never spent over 2 years at a job. Yes, I have great benefits i.e. insurance, paid time off, flexibility, etc. Yes, I have a great boss who is willing to work with me on every want and need I desire. Yes, I never have to worry about bills and YES it's a great status. BUT. And I do mean BUT!!!!!! This morning three of my employees, who were scheduled for a shift at the same time, were not at work. Two of them quit and one was sadly home, sick-blah!! A little tidbit, when you're sick-go to work! Unless you have some contagious disease, go to work! Ok, depending on your job, but if you have diarrhea, you can still go to work and NOT leave your co-workers stranded. I digress. So, am I bitter-no. Am I sad-no. Am I worried about the next few weeks-no, ok a little....Am I feeling bad for leaving-NO! Almost used a profanity, but I refrained. Am I still excited to be leaving, YES!!! So excited, I just can't hide it!

Kah, Kah, Kah!

So I had a little touch of the Nostalgia tonight. Glenda took me to see Wizard of Oz, performed by the Central Community Theatre. It was entertaining. I laughed. I enjoyed most of the singers and they had a live Orchestra, go figure?!?

It made me think of high school, of course, and how lucky I was to have been in such a great town. There's a lot of diversity in Canon City and there's a lot of art driven people. although there were 14 prisons within 15 minutes of my house, there was definitely a lot of expression going on. I say all this to give homage to my exposure to Theatre and express my love for it! I still listen, a great bit, to musicals. I love music. I love singing. I love dancing.

In addition and on a totally separate note, I'm teaching Sunday School tomorrow and just remembered about 20 minutes ago. Yikes! Here come those last minute missionary skills!
