New toys for Suzie Homemaker

I made an 0-skunk-30 prowl over to the Saline Road Meijer and when Suzy Homemaker arose from his beauty sleep, these loverly toys were waiting for him. Of course the almost empty Windexes are not new.

Ugh. What did I do today? My performance evaluation. The self-input part. Does anyone else hate these things? My job doesn’t really change in terms of my responsibilities. It is the variety of projects that changes. There are no solid metrics to measure my performance by. So how do I write about that? As creatively as I can. And that was not very creative today. Plus the “tool” we are provided with is constantly evolving but doesn’t ever seem to lose its clunky-ness. I won’t describe that, as if I could. It took me something like a half hour to figure out where I WAS and where I NEEDED TO BE.

I did the best I could. What I really wanted to say is something to the effect of, “I am a baggy old bag. I don’t really need to work but I love this job and think I’m pretty good at it after a bunch of years and standing on other people’s shoulders. I am a team player and I love and value the folks I work with and hope I always treat everyone as respectfully as they treat me. This job has saved my sanity during the pandemic. I always work to improve my skills but I am not at the beginning of a career and don’t aspire to run the company or whatever.” As if! And don’t get me wrong. It is a great company to work for especially during a pandemic. I don’t think anybody likes performance evaluations.

Besides that, covid numbers are rising AGAIN and every time I turn around I hear of another person who has it. Most people are not getting all that sick, which is good, but have we not learned anything from this dance yet? Mask up, mask up, mask up. I will continue to do so for the sake of others. It’s still killing people.

    I really don’t want to get it, mild or not. (especially if it messes up my New York trip)
