Okay, so it's Saturday. Too bad. Here is the one thing I accomplished this week:
Even though it was my vacation, I ran into town for a meeting at work. A couple of VIPs were giving a presentation about some big changes that are coming; even though the presentation was being videotaped, I thought it was important politically for me to show up. My boss's boss, who is three weeks younger than me, sat down next to me and threw his arm around my shoulders. "It's been so quiet around here this week!" Don't take it wrong: my work group has been together for well over a decade, and we've had regular get-togethers with spouses and kids included. We've attended funerals and weddings in one another's families. I truly love these people, and I feel loved by them. We are all supporting each other during the transitional time that is suddenly affecting our work environment.
Speaking of love: On Monday, I announced a giveaway that I would make to anyone commenting on that post and said that I would make a random number draw, blah, blah, blah. Well, the random number generator burped and came up with the following three numbers: 1, 2, and 3. I'll be in touch with those folks through private e-mail. Thank you for playing along.
