Well what now?

People can be irrational. So what? Doesn't everyone have a bad, bad day now and then? And isn't it awful to throw away a potentially beneficial relationship because of a terrible mis understanding?

So this is where I am at today. I see two people have individually had a bad day. And they unfortunately ended up in the same room alone. Both people were impossibly rushed and busy with their own issues. They failed to communicate effectively. One or both lost composure. One said I don't deserve to be treated this way and retreated angrily. And the other said I don't deserve to be treated this way and angrily accepted the retreat.

Neither is happy and now it seems it the business is being thrown away, at least temporarily.

So which party was right? Don't know but I see no reason why it can't be fixed. Suppose bad things do happen and I can't understand or fix them all.

I guess I just sigh and move to a different customer. Wonder what can I do to make amends to my customer for this? What can I do to make amends with my co-workers and boss.

Grown up world is definitely not for the faint of heart.

I don't know why I must alwAys apologize for being absent from the blog. Why it matters that I spend more time dealing face to face with business associates than with Facebook a long time ago we went to high school friends.


New job is nice. It has it's unique headaches and it's refreshing moments. As always it comes down to me and my struggles with ADHD. I finally have medical but no coverage for preexisting conditions like ADHD until the end of September. So some of the guidance I want I cant have because I can't afford to pay 100% cash.

I have more questions than answers today. One of them is why does it take so long to get rid of a cold? Why do employers punish previously convicted people who served their debt to society? I get that you don't want someone who will hurt your business but the reality is that by not allowing people who screwed up move forward we are just forcing them to turn to crime for food and housing. And why do I always need to go number 2 after I pass the last clean restroom?

Contrary to Klout.com

I am still alive.

Ridiculously tired, excited and eager!

I love exclamation points!!!!

So since I have been gone:
I went to NYC for the first time! It was also a family vacation. The kids and my mother, stepfather and stepsisters.
I finally closed on my house! Take that rotten Park on Olive apartments!
I started my new job at Command Center as a Business Development specialist. Turns out if I am given space, time, great support from my staff, wonderful guidance from my boss and a House Manager/nanny I will be quite successful! My job is very cool! I get to explore the city, be my usual inquisitive and curious self. If it looks interesting I can get out of my car and learn all about it. I get to explore new buildings all over town before anyone else! Meet hundreds of new people and learn fascinating things. I am constantly reminded of the book Invisible Cities and the tales of Marco Polo's travels in it. Its absolutely awesome! Who knew you could get paid to be an explorer!
