I feel like the Cowardly Lion stroking his own tail and repeating “I’m not afraid. I’m not afraid” over and over again in the Wicked Witch’s forest. My mantra is just a bit different. Mine is “I’m glad I have a job. I’m glad I have a job.” And there are days when the witch’s forest looks mighty homey to me. Now, don’t go feeling all sorry for me. I have a corner on that market. I just wonder if it’s like my favorite Peggy Lee song “Is That All There Is? I don’t even have a bad job. I have an ok job that could pay more, but doesn’t. I just think I’ve reached that stage of my working life (200+ years) where I cannot help but believe there has got to be something more. Of course, I could be wrong. Look at Stinky. She gets up in the morning with Grover and me and follows us around the house, nagging at us and trying to get us to do her bidding . When the pup and I return from our walk, she starts up once again. After she is fed and given her treats, she starts up again until I leave for work. At that point, she goes to bed…….again. This happens every single time I come into the house. The repetition is endless.
There’s a part of me that has trouble seeing the difference;-P Have a lovely weekend. And, my soundtrack for today is, of course, Peggy Lee.
