Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.



Thank you to all who read, liked, and/or commented on the previous post. It’s a heavy topic and several of you sent me articles and links outside the comment section as well. I don’t want any of you to think I took your responses lightly, I’m still processing some of it myself.

Meanwhile Katie and I are going camping for a few days. I think we’ll be mostly out of touch, but I’m sure you’ll hear from us when we return. Katie has been unusually quiet lately, and I’m sure she’ll have plenty to say when we get back.

Meanwhile, stay safe and be happy!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Camping! How fun! I’d love to hear more about that adventure 🙂 I went camping in Death Valley (CA,) a few weeks ago. It was wonderful. Enjoy your trip!


  2. Enjoy your camping trip. I know it takes awhile sometimes to process the deeper stuff that comes up and through us and the world. Take care, Dawn and Katie!


  3. Enjoy your break! It will be good to get away from it all for a few days. Travel safely.


  4. Enjoy your time in nature Dawn


    • Thank you, we had a great site right on Saginaw Bay. That made it pretty windy and cold during a couple of the days, but the view was spectacular when the sky cleared up!


  5. Katie will have let us know how many squirrels she chased. Hope you have a pawsome time.

    • Lots of chipmunks, but she didn’t really notice any of them. She’s lost most of her hearing and slept through a lot of stuff, which actually made my job a bit easier this trip!


  6. I love her bed! Have a great time 🤗


    • We had a great time. She slept on her bed about 50% of the time. When she gets warm she climbs down and sleeps on the floor for awhile until she decides to get back on her princess pillow again. She also has 2 regular people pillows on top of the princess bed. She feels special.


  7. I liked tent camping. Decided to get the travel trailer though as the one thing that I really didn’t like about tenting was rain in the mornings, hard to get a nice cup of coffee. Hope you have nice weather and a great adventure.


    • Katie and I just got home a couple of hours ago. Tuesday the wind was so strong it was hard to get the tent up and then we retreated into it to help hold it down. Wednesday it was cold and then foggy and then rainy. Thursday was absolutely beautiful, almost made me forget about the previous days! Of course today was also beautiful, but we had to come home. I will be glad to be warm tonight, it was cold all 3 nights.l We love tent camping, but it’s getting harder for me to get out of bed in the morning when the bed is so close to the ground!


  8. Yeah Katie got to go along! 🙂 Have fun!!
