I had some dreams ... they were klowns in my koffee.

(With apologies to Carly Simon)

This is my journey through job transition from a toxic environment to a better life. Join me for a few thoughts and a few laughs along the way.
What are "klowns in my koffee"? They are the factors large and small that make you less than you are. A "klown" can be a grossly incompetent boss,
a short-sighted policy or a moronic coworker. They won't kill you, at least not immediately, but they abrade the soul
as you scrape past them to get through the day. Sometimes it's best to dump them out of the cup.


Day 243 - Happy Thanksgiving

While today did not turn out exactly as we had planned -- unless we had planned to sit in a freezing car on the side of the road with a dead cell phone waiting for a tow truck while children chanted "This is the worst Thanksgiving ever" in the back seat -- the things that we temporarily lost made us thankful for what we have.

Having a car with no transmission makes us thankful for the freedom to travel, a freedom denied to many in the world.

Because we were cold, we are thankful for warm clothing and to be able to go home to a heated house.

Having missed a festive meal, we are thankful for having ample food.

Because we missed seeing them, we are thankful for the warmth and love of our extended family.

Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours
