When I was a kid...

and I went trick or treating... If someone offered me a bowl of candy to choose a piece, I knew it meant ONE piece. Because my parents were right next to me to smack my hand if I even LOOKED like I might take more than one piece.

Apparently, that rule no longer holds as kids are attempting to take handfuls. Although, I shame them a little bit by saying, just one please, and they reluctantly open their fist and allow several pieces of candy to trickle back into the bowl. Sometimes it is followed by a bashful apology.

But now I'm going to take control and choose for the little punks what piece of candy they get.

Should I be unhappy?

The funding for my program at work is temporarily on hold because of state financial problems. For the time being it cannot move forward and may not ever move forward in it's current structure.

The agency is going to restructure my program so it can be funded differently. However, any kind of funding is touchy right now due to the budget problems.

Just as I got the news, I had an individual sitting in the lobby waiting to interview for a position with my program. Oh, my. I had to tell them the position no longer existed because of funding. Which also means I wasted my time vetting and interviewing several other people for a non existent position.

Now I'm processing whether or not I think my agency will be successful in restructuring the program. If it's not, it will be an opportunity for me to try something new that I've had on the back burner ... being a paralegal!

Scary woman

Tonight we were at a party where a woman couldn't get enough of my husband but kept giving me the evil eye. I'm still trying to figure out what exactly was going on.

Good Shopper

At the grocery store this evening, an older woman stopped me with a question. "You look like a good shopper. Good shopper, where do I find lightbulbs?" I pointed to a few aisles down. She replied, "Thank you, Good Shopper!".

Perhaps I exude confidence and knowledge when I grocery shop?! Anway, I want "Good Shopper" to be my new nickname in my picture, instead of pastor's wife.
