These are strange times

Egypt  has governmental uprising. The Middle East is in turmoil. They are protesting in Wisconsin over the governor’s actions. Every time my bosses come down, they tell me they may be getting rid of me. My son-in-law is still trying to find a job. It is a very stressful time for so many people. I feel like I could use an extended vacation. I would sit in my house working on my rugs, weaving, embroidery, etc. and would watch old movies. I suppose I would feel antsy after a few days. Still, it would be nice.

I got word yesterday I passed my Praxis test. It was a long, grueling test but with that out of the way, I can get that new license. It came on the same day as my work evaluation……….. Talk about highs and lows. This idea that people can judge your body of work by momentary snapshots of your day leaves a lot to be desired. It becomes one of those things that you can’t argue with as they have the power. It would be helpful though if they were more constructive. I guess that is my approach though. It still hurts today but I am resolving that I won’t let it effect the people I work with every day though.

I was talking to my mother about these times. It is so tempting not to listen to what is happening in the world. I told her though we can’t be like these people who are being so greedy in society.  I think we have to resolve to work on hunger projects. It is the light a candle instead of cursing the darkness idea. We should resolve to donate more food over Lent instead of giving up some inconsequential thing.


On an up note, this is the progress I made so far on my rug.
