Yesterday I passed a sign advertising a local children's theater production of Macbeth. Seems a rather dark choice for a children's theater group.  ha2ha

Out, damned spot! out, I say!--One: two: why,
then, 'tis time to do't.--Hell is murky!--Fie, my
lord, fie! a soldier, and afeard? What need we
fear who knows it, when none can call our power to
account?--Yet who would have thought the old man
to have had so much blood in him.

Lady Macbeth   Act 5, Scene 1


Yeah, this is good stuff.  But for kids?

Weird how this thread is not at the top as usual   :-\
I don't know about anyone else but when summer comes up here I basically bust my arse with work, projects and other things. When I'm done I fall into bed and collapse. There's so much to do in good weather and not enough time! When the winter comes and the woodstove goes on I find myself more relaxed and able to sit. it's just the season. This too shall pass!    :)

Does it matter to you if you don't get rewarded or voiced appreciation from your managers?

I can speak from the other side, KE.  It's very important to commend employees for a job well done.  When my nurse or office manager has done something exemplary I always take the time to tell them so.  We work very closely in my office and everyone is important.  Together, we work as a unit to provide proper patient care.

It's been a while since I was a resident, but I remember how happy I felt when I was called into the director's office when I received a good evaluation from the attending staff.

I'm self-employed, KE, so I can't chime in on this; sorry!

KE, I think everyone wants to hear that they are doing a good job. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to have an employer like Barry who will tell them. It's tough to wonder how someone feels about you in general and especially when it comes to your work performance. I'll never forget how I felt at my last job one day when I was plugging away in the back room as a page, checking in books. My supervisor was showing someone around and told them that back here was the bottom of the ladder at the library. While that wasn't really speaking against my performance, her words and tone of voice did make me feel like what I was doing didn't matter much. On the other side, I will also never forget a time about 6 months into my current job when someone from our library system was visiting. My boss introduced me and said that I was doing a "top-shelf" job for them. In both jobs I carried those comments around with me and it really affected how I felt about myself. In the first case I felt very negative for a couple of weeks until I remembered something someone else said at a book repair workshop about how the pages were the first line of defense in protecting the library's holdings. That perked me right up but I'd still rather be where I am! So...yes, a pat on the back when you're doing well is not a lot to ask for but if you aren't getting that find ways to pat your own back and keep your eyes peeled for a different situation.

Sound advice right there!


What's the matter, KE?  Are you not feeling appreciated where you work?

I took a walk tonight on the d**e behind our property and saw 6 deer, a fox and then an eagle. That eagle was a surprise and I had to do some Googling to make sure that's what it was. I had no idea all that went on back there! There's a lot of trees between the d**e and our place.
