#WeekendCoffeeShare: Changes are Coming

Good morning and welcome! Come in and join me for a cup of coffee and a chat.

You can take off your coat and follow me out onto my back patio. It’s blazing hot out today despite only 73-degree-Fahrenheit (about 23-degree-celsius). It’s what happens when one has been in the cold for far too long.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you this is the first week of the April A-Z challenge and after skipping the challenge in 2020, I feel confident I am going to survive this one with my theme “Of all the thing I am” where I introduce 26 of my good and bad qualities (I can’t say they’re the best and worst since their neither). This is the link to the posts posted so far.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you this week has been a cake-walk. Mr. CFO and my work’s postman have both decided to go on vacation this week. I usually go into the office on Wednesday to sort and stamp the mail with a received-date but this week, all there were only the few pieces of mail left over from last week.

I went home after four hours in the office and completed the rest of the work day at home.

If we were having coffee, I would ask if you remember our chat from three weeks ago. Of course not. I couldn’t remember it myself.

Anyway, in our chat three weeks ago, I mentioned I had 3 death dreams. According to Google, death dreams mean changes are coming. This week had me wondering if I am psychic or maybe I’m just really good at sensing people’s demeanor even though I can’t see them.

On April’s Fool Day (no joke), during my weekly team meeting, my Supervisor announced she’s quitting. My colleagues were surprised. I, on the other hand, was anxious. Who will be the team’s advocate? Who will manage the team? Who will approve my overtime hours? Who will be conducting my annual review in a month? Who will know how much of a raise to give me? So many questions ran through my head at once, which had my hands shaking.

I suddenly felt glad my camera was off. No one could see the look on my face and my trembling hands.

To be honest, I kinda got a sense my supervisor wasn’t feeling satisfied with her job from her lack of participation at the department meetings and I got a sense she’s ready to move on, to have a fresh start. I don’t blame her. I am happy for her. Do what you love, right?

However, this is just one change and I had 3 dreams. What are the other two? I guess I’ll just have to stick around and find out.

If we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me in this edition of #weekendcoffeeshare and hope we’ll both return next week.

  1. Death dreams are so weird aren’t they. I always wake up like “that’s just maddeningly unhelpful. Why are these things never clear?” Like the death card in tarot, they stand for metamorphosis, or radical change. Doesn’t mean bad changes, changes can be good, but still change. 🙂

  2. It’s always a little scary and unsettling when someone consistent at work leaves, especially when they are a line manager/supervisor. My line manager left suddenly last month too and it’s been quite anxiety-provoking. I hope it turns out well. Thanks for the coffee share!

  3. I can think of only a few times when I dreamed about death. They were shocking and woke me up but I never saw any cause or result out here in the real world. I hope something cool changes for you though. I think you deserve a break from craziness for a change.
