American politics are a lifetime of bizarreness, making life in DC a bit complicated.
No one wins a trade war, and someone is proving their stupidity one Tweet at a time. It is not that complicated.
We are starting work on updating the Condo, and Lowes sent a tractor trailer and a forklift to deliver flooring to my home on the third floor. The driver called from outside and said, NO WAY. Now I paid Lowes to send someone to come out a measure, and create a plan for putting in the floors. It isn't that complicated.
My department at work is being defunded by our host organization. We have reserve funds, so we have a couple of years for a transition, but we either need to develop a plan that allows us to exist entirely on outside funding, or we all need to figure figure out what next. I have three options, find additional outside funding, find another position within the organization (in a different department), or move onto another opportunity. I had hoped that the work would outlast me, this brings me up a few years short of not needing to rely on this for an income and health insurance. Change and new opportunities are never easy, but frequently leave us in a better place than staying static. I need to keep reminding myself, it is not that complicated, look at all three options and create the way forward.
So, sometimes things are complicated.
Hows things with you?
