Living in Uncertainty

About 6 weeks ago, our boss told three of us that we'd be moving to new cubicles in July. No one was pleased. My two coworkers because they currently work in offices. Me, because it's something NEW and UNKNOWN! I've mostly just been ignoring it since then. Today, the people one row over started packing up. It's something of a domino process, this move, and they're first. So of course, I couldn't continue to ignore it.

I stopped by and asked my sort of boss when I was moving. And he said, oh, I don't even see you on this list. Hmmm. My boss was out today, so she couldn't confirm. I'm 90% sure I'll still be moving. But hooray! Some new and different uncertainty! I'm doing okay with it. There are plusses and minuses to both moving or not (if I don't, my new neighbor will be my least favorite person in our department and it will be especially annoying because she's just whined her way into a nice big window spot, but I digress), so I'm trying to find my zen place, and just go with the flow. Not my strong suit, but I'm working on it.


  1. Ann, it sounds like you're doing a good job going with the flow. It may not be your strong suit, but you sure have worked hard on it, and I think it must be becoming your strong suit!

  2. My GOD, not my strong suit either! Of course our themes are so different, but I think people with OCD in general don't like uncertainty - even more than the average person. Keep going, you can do it!!!
