Today I decided to paint the heating system in the parts where the colour was damaged some days ago. White paint - check - found - start. Well, no paint, just something hard. I put my hand in it to see if I could manage to find some liquid under the hard surface. Well, there was - and my hand was white. The paint did not go off with water. Several scrubs later I still have partly white hands, but the painting is done, too.
I am in my bed, having a terrible cold and I am coughing a lot. I had to call ill at work. And my menstruation started. Like my doc said very much blood. Next month he will check if I need another operation.
Today I had a day off from work. I had made a date with our local social trade center coz I want to give away some things we do not need any longer. They could only come during the morning between 9 and 12 for looking and it will take them another day for collecting the stuff. So I took today a day off from work. They came early and I had nearly the whole day for myself.
I asked Ana yesterday if there is something she wants to see today. She told me she wants to see Christmas around and perhaps pics from the park when the weather is nice enough. Today we had a grey rainy day. Not much fun to go into the city to catch some Christmas. So I decided to catch some really nice scenery around my home. Near to my home at the lake they sell Christmas trees in all shapes and highs. A Christmas tree is a "must" in this part of the world. I will have one waiting for me in the Hunsrück area.
Everything is in autumn grey and brown. We had allready once some snow but it melted right away.
And I could not resist to take a pic of the two naked ones, just behind the Christmas tree shop.
I do not want to go into the little details. It is not as interesting as that for anybody who was not involved. Just this:
As word for 2011 I had choosen "prosper".
That is something I believe I realised this year in my private life.
Well, in my working life I thought I could not realise it. I am still with a contract until next summer. In the last one and a half year I did several different jobs for the firm I am currently working with. Jumping in wherever there was a need. When I asked my big boss for a resumee coz I wanted to apply for a permanent job elsewhere I just got an " 3" on a scale from 1 (best) to 6 (worst). 3 is really bad in my corporate world so I applied but did not get the job.
Yesterday we had a meeting and the big boss thanked all persons who were working on a project. He thanked all - just missing me. I do not think he wants to be unfair to me. I just think he does not know what I am doing.
And somebody else told me some weeks ago that I shall teach other persons to do my current job, coz I will do something else in the new year. When I asked what I will do I only got the answer that they are not sure yet.
Heck, I am doing good work. I reached all the reachable goals. And I worked mostly on my own in very different projects. Just asking for help when I needed some information.
That was the status yesterday.
Today I asked my direct boss if he knows that my big boss has given me a 3 (My direct boss was not aviable at the time I needed my resumee). And that I think the big boss does not know what I am doing and I do not know what I will do next year.
He said he will take care of the situation.
I do not know if the situation will be better in the future, but I am happy that I asked. You see, I can ask nearly everything - as long as I am not involved. When I ask for somebody else - easypeasy. When I ask for something for myself - oh, not today, I am not worth it...
So equal what will be the outcome: I am happy to have asked.
