A little different

We are sitting by the fire. I have just finished the Quaker sampler – done in reds and pinks and purples – for Sita and Jim’s first anniversary while Axel is trying to read our home insurance policy.

reading an insurance policy turns out to be a great remedy against sleeplessness. The whole document is about things that will not be covered (a friend who worked in the insurance industry told us that you have to pay attention to the exclusions rather than what is being covered. You will find most of the document covering exclusions.

Some of them are most bizarre. I can just see these lawyers sitting around a conference table cooking up scenarios that most of us wouldn’t even dream of.

Axel does this reading because he is handling all the insurance stuff and so estate management remains a fulltime job for him while I go to work and continue my so far fruitless search for work.

There is no magic bullet, my new boss tells me. Of course I never asked for a magic bullet, just some recognition that I have been at this company for 25 years next month, wondering, is this the best they can do?

I came home really flat, Axel could tell from my face, after an eight hour workday of which six are being charged to vacation time – ughhh.

I now regret that I did not seek more actively a job elsewhere before I returned as now its is a little late in the game. I will start to pick up that search again because the current situation does not look good. Axel is ready for me to ship out again if that is the only way to be fully employed and being together. This is going a little different than I had expected.
