So I’ve been keeping up with the thankfulness updates each day, which has been a good reminder for me to keep my frustration in perspective.
Day 3: Today I am thankful for Kendall, who enjoys a good political shouting match – it’s his birthday!
Day 4: Today I am thankful for my awesome friends, who make me feel valued and supported every day of my life.
Day 5: Today I am thankful for the gift of artistic ability – I’m not sure why I have it, but I’m glad I do.
Day 6: I am thankful today that this day, like every work day, will have an end.
Day 7: Today I am thankful to get some perspective.
And I just came out of a brief sit-down with my manager to talk about some ways to bring on positive change in our department (and our company). I think it’s a good thing.
In other news, the work on Imprimatur has been going really well.
I have about 15 copies of the book bound already, and another seven that are ready to be bound tonight. The remaining 18 still need to be halved so they’re the right size, but I’m aiming to get those done by the weekend. I’m definitely going to meet the deadline this time (assuming I don’t lose my fingers in the next two weeks to an unfortunate hacksaw accident or something).
I need to find a new project to work on!
