Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


Setting goals, earning rewards.

A while ago, my wife proposed an idea to me...as we were acquiring some quality bottles of wine...why not tie them to a specific goal?  I mean, sure...you could always just drink a $50 bottle of wine because it's Tuesday, but...it feels less indulgent if you go label some of your bottles wine with goals, like 'Pay off Truck' or 'Didn't beat the kids this week'.

Today, I reached one of my goals.

Yup...I accepted a new job offer today.  Same company, but I accepted a position to be a Training Specialist, getting me out of the supervisor business.  It's only a lateral move financially, but I have been so disenfranchised with the supervisory role the last few years that I had actually discussed being willing to take a pay cut with my wife if that's what it took.  Luckily, I didn't have to.

The wine for the night was among my most favorite...a 2002 Malbec from Terra Blanca Estate Winery. 

No word on when the personnel transfer will go in to effect, and I will continue you to do my current job to the best of my abilities, because...things happen, and I don't believe in burning bridges. 

But tonight?  It's a celebration!
