It was a very long day. One of my staff called in sick so I had to cover her evening shift; it sucks being the boss sometimes. I'd rather be the boss though, if I'm honest. I like running my own show. Every now and then I think I should have more ambition and move on up the ladder in library land, but if I moved to a larger library system I'd just be a worker bee and frankly, I like being the queen. I think it's a good thing to be happy where you are at and to recognize your limitations and strong points.
I managed very well today on the food front. I did NOT EAT ANY sweets! And despite having a long day, being very tired and hungry when I left work I went straight home and made a good dinner. I did NOT go a buy a pizza, which was always my go-to food for similar situations in the past. A very good step in the direction of progress. I liked the Obama campaign slogan "Forward" and I think I will print up some signs saying that to remind me. You wouldn't think a person would need reminding to go forward but I find I do. There are times when the past is too much with me and keeping me from going forward. Forward------->
