I started to get irritated this morning. I reached my year at my new job, and promptly lost 12 hours of vacation time. I got my new 2 weeks, but they only rolled over 40 of the 52 hours I still had from last year.
My boss is seeing what can be done, but I’m irritated because no one told me they changed the policy on how much vacation time can roll over. Heck, I can’t sell my time, and if I take a week off, I’ll come back to more work than I can handle. That is, if some of the people I work with don’t have a coronary because I’m going to be gone.
It just seems like such a minor irritation now.
Two schools gone. I still haven’t heard anything about how many kids have been found. At least fifty-one dead.
Cars piled up in front of one of the hospitals in the area. Cars stuck on the interstate that were smashed against the retaining walls.
Kinda puts it all in perspective, doesn’t it?
I’ve been thinking of a song tonight… it goes ‘count your blessings, name them one by one’ – It helps you see the good.
My heart goes out to the families in Moore, tonight. My heart aches, and my eyes are wanting to leak.
Laterness & g’night.
