Still, I digress. Lately, there has been a change looming in our department to adapt a new numbering system to these resources. Having worked there all these years, I know the inherent difficulties with this idea. And I must say, I let it be known that I would not be a part of it. I even had the audacity to ask who's permission in the food chain had been given to allow this to happen. answer? None. Because I Said So. You Will Do It. It's Your Job.
I have always said, choose your battles carefully. Well this is mine. Some things cannot change just because a new idea gets hatched. I refused to use the new system. Now you may thing wow, Pam is so getting old and set in her ways. Get with the new. Out with the old. But gals, the old isn't broken. Don't Fix it. So this past week, losing sleep and talking my dear husband's ears right off his head, I was feeling so defeated. I made the appointment for applying for my retirement. I mentally started cleaning out my desk. How one thing can rock your world and tell you, hey, maybe I've given it my best and it's time to let someone else take over.

Then of all things, I asked for another meeting to plead my case again. I don't go away quietly. And as Mercury moved out of retrograde, and my retirement calculation was being figured out in Sacramento, my boss came to my door and told me that yes, indeed. The numbering system would stay after all. And then this morning, look at what the funnies had to say:
Sometimes the planets just line up in your favor. That pile of unfinished quilts is about to start having fun.
