I wish it was that simple, my supervisor is on that shaky edge of quitting and the other person in the office is past retirement age. I want that job, something that won't happen if I leave. I am in line for the position and I really don't think I can get anything else resembling the benefits package I have now. At least not around here, I'm getting too old to be out looking for another job, let alone another city, state....

It is never easy and I think, on some level, they know it. I watched this happen to the assisted living facility that my mom lived in and it seemed like the Senior VP's and above always managed to get a bonus for containing costs by squeezing the nurses and the CNA's. They even fired the therapy dog to cut costs!

They used to say that doing a good job was like peeing your pants while you were wearing a dark suit. It gave you a warm feeling but, nobody noticed.

I have been using sea salt on my food for more than a year. I will never go back to regular salt again for my table salt. The only reason I have it now is for baking.

Biding my time, wish I could go to bed now, but I don't want to wake up @ 2 am. I did finally sleep last night, but I think I need another good night to recover.
