So, yesterday was slow at work... really, really slow. Not that there weren't customers in the store, the foot traffic we saw was light, though to be honest was normal for this time of year. Winter is turning out to be a bit cooler here then last year. On most days temps hit the 40's (F).
I did receive the first of my 2 yearly reviews. The process has changed. Gone is the folder with pages of critique, your strengths and your weaknesses. This was more of a chat, shorter then some as I have no interest in growing my career at this point in my life. I did mention the fact that there are times when I am still put in position of authority; I don't like that. I took a cut back in $$$ because I no longer wanted to deal with 'situations.'
Cori, the artist who does my cover-art, told my she should be finished with The Body in the Loch sometime next. I'm excited.
My new running sneakers arrived yesterday. The uppers are some sort of meshy material which fit snugly across the top of my foot. There's also a removeable insert made of Parley ocean plastic, which is upcycled, not recycled, and evidently better for the environment.
