6WS - It's been such a huge week
This week has been a big one at work - change management training and action planning for the coming two years and a lot of 'aha' moments as we watched many of our HR Managers actually realise just what sort of challenges we have in front of us.
There's days when the road ahead seems quite daunting and scary. Life is a bit like that as well - when you look at the big picture it can seem kinda out of reach. So while you have to be able to envisage the big picture, you also have to be able to take a step back and just look at the here and now and take the baby steps.
Project work is really wierd because you have such bursts of activity and stress and then lulls of quiet time - it's like riding a roller coaster and just knowing you have to hold on because you don't know when the quiet times will suddenly end. It's also an exhausting way of working.
There must be something in the air at the moment, is it a full moon, new moon - I don't know but everyone seems a little weird. The dog has been sulking today because she didn't get to go to the beach - rain is not conducive to walking on the beach, nor is shopping and the kazillion other things I had to get done today.
She chewed up her harness for the car and hubby's thongs today ~ grin ~ hubby has been 'painful' in the last 24 hours so I'm thinking maybe she's even smarter than I thought and she's kicking his butt for me.
Him and his mates are having a night of blasting music and being loud and rowdy - so not being able to hear the television is annoying. Can't even rely on the neighbour to complain because he's a part of it.
Grandson stayed last night and was awake for an hour during the night, this is the baby who has been sleeping all night since 9 weeks old, so that was a little bit disconcerting as well. Not what I needed after such a huge week, but you get that. I was up early for football with the youngest this morning so I had a nice little nanna nap this arvo.
Rainy days and nanna naps - these are two of my favourite things in the world, partly because they go together so well.
Thank you Brenda for the reminder and the mention, I'll be dropping by and maybe you all should stop by for a peek at what she's doing with the launch of her newest book 'Skewered Halo'. A real published writer not a 'wanna be' so I have to smooze and hope that some of her awesomeness rubs off.
Cheers all and apologies for the extended rambling tonight - I think I needed some unload time after the week I've had. The music and ruckus from the shed has suddenly gone quiet - my ESP which is shouting 'shut up' is finally working.
Have a great week, Fi
