    Back from break today. I was actually ready to get back to work.

    The building was so cold - it takes so long to warm up!

    It was so nice to see everyone and it was a bit of a relaxing day with some meetings sprinkled in.

    Tomorrow the students come back.

    Life has been intense lately. Work is especially intense, as there is a very incompetent contracted employee that has made my work life a living h#ll. But I am holding strong on my expectations, as I should. It would not be ethical if I let it go. I have given feedback to the employee.

    When that didn't work, I included her boss in the conversation. Her boss talks nice, but doesn't seem to address the issue. He admits there is a problem but wants us to ignore the results - but I cannot do that, nor is it realistic.

    I spent the past few weeks meeting with other affected professionals, who have also spoken to her boss - quite firmly pointedly, apparently. Ultimately I suspect this person might lose her job, but that is certainly not my intention. I just want her to take responsibility for her mistakes, learn from them, and do it right the next time.

    But all she has done is- deny the issue until I showed her proof, then ask me who I think I am to tell her how to do her job, then blame the issues on her assistants but deny she did it, then says she won't do it again. And she seems to have done it again - a person with a master's degree that should understand about such things and cleary does not.

    I'm so done with the stress of it all, but I feel somewhat relieved after a lengthy phone conversation with a higher up person today, who is taking this all very seriously. Finally.

    And, on a different note, my niece is getting married. I'm excited to be able to see my siblings this spring!

    Lastly, my cat just brought me a dead rat through the cat door. Ugh. Glad it was dead. He was so proud, and dropped it at my feet. I heard that odd muffled meow, and went to investigate, and...

    My friend J, whom I've known for 30 years, has become financially unstable. She owns a condo, but the fees have gone way up. Her mortgage is reasonable, but she had no idea about how condo fees can rise so drastically.

    She does subbing, so she doesn't have a permanent job. Her choice.

    But now the jobs are drying up, and she is very burnt out anyway. She thinks she will not have enough money to pay the mortgage and fees this month, for the first time. I'm worried about her. I hope she looks for a permanent job.

    I've been concerned about her work choices for some time.

    Spoke with my older son. He has a new girlfriend! A law student. He knows how to pick them-- last gf was a forensic biologist or something brainy like that. It was fun to catch up with him.

    Do you think the higher HOA fees will make it more difficult for her to sell the condo, if the need for her to downgrade her living situation arises?
