Finished Frank McCourt’s Teacher Man yesterday. I have thoroughly enjoyed each of his books – maybe it is the Irish kinsmen thing. Maybe it is that I can honestly say, gee, he had a tougher childhood than mine (because we ALL know that OUR childhood was tough, right?) Right.
The coworker who brought in the book said she didn’t like it as well (if at all) as Angela’s Ashes and ‘Tis.
but . . .
you know me – all eclectic and that . . . I thoroughly enjoyed it.
In other news – this is the chair I’d like for my “reading corner” if I had such a thing (I read ALL OVER the house!). And, now I can’t remember whose site I saw it on – sorry, but if you read this just let me know and I will give you the credit for showing it off first. 😉
In other news . . .
tomorrow is my annual evaluation with my boss – at 11 a.m. – and, for the first time in five years, I’m not even worried. Hmmm, that might not be a good thing – but I seriously don’t think I will get a bad review – and, it’s not like I’ll get a raise out of it or anything. We are a non-profit and IF we get a raise, it is because the budget can stand it and they are not on a pay freeze.
I received a COLA last year and the year before. At the first pay period of the month following my hire date – which means the first pay in August – if we aren’t on a COLA freeze, I should get one.
that would be nice – of course, since we are on a fiscal year, it is all wrapped up into the budget and such – and who knows, I may be bumped back down to 30 hours or less again. Hope not. We’ll see.
Nope, still not worried – haven’t talked myself into it, yet. Think I’ll quit while I’m ahead. Thanks to everyone who peeked in on me via webcam yesterday. I hope you didn’t see me eating that sloppy (VERY sloppy) tuna sandwich. Mercy! That would be embarrassing.
