No More Tales from the Trenches

There was a little book that I read many years ago called Who Moved My Cheese . It was written in the days when big companies were just starting to become more involved in reorganization and outsourcing (and we all know how that turned out). So, after I read that book, I knew that the moving cheese could be applied at any time.

You can get reorged out of a position.

Your favourite aerobics instructor leaves, and you are not very happy with the replacement.

Your hair dresser packs it in, and leaves you high and dry without a hair dryer.

You get the picture.

Well, the cheese has moved once again. Mairin, who has (had?) a blog called Tales from the Trenches and Other Musings, has decided to take a wee break, and put her blogging activities on hold for awhile, and I am sad. We had developed a rapport, and I will miss reading her stories.

Now, I can't even leave her a message, because her blog is closed, so I have to leave her intended messages at my own blog....*sniff*. Almost like writing to myself. But that's okay, because that is what I used to do in my paper journal....write to myself. Who else was going to read it?

answer = NOBODY

The good side to this is that she said that she would still visit from time to time, and I hope that she does.

We share the same first name.

We share a love of fitness.

We share a home town.

So, Mairin, please take all the time that you need, and I hope that you return to the blogging world.....soon.

Á bientôt....I'm keeping you on my sidebar...just in case....k?

Why don't you guys email each other? Personally I have built up some great friendships from writing emails back and forth to people.

I haven't read the book ("Who Moved My Cheese") but from your description, after the past week and back to getting this computer 3 weeks ago, I sure can relate to that issue! Today, it was "who moved the box of books I just purchased this past week?" Very annoying! Petty to some I supposed but to me, just plain annoying and I'm already up to my eyeballs somedays in the little annoyances here!
