Happy has quite the vocabulary.
Probably from spending so much time w/Robbie.
I like "divested." ..."I'm going to divest now." '-)
finally, finally, finally, after weeks of near hits, near misses & several emotional roller coaster rides, ducatiman & I have found a FABULOUS place to move into. Together. '-)
It's just right. Even better than that. We knocked it out of the park. Yay!
We're going to make a beautiful home together.
I'm over the moon. sigh... *great big smile*
Thanks, Stir! And Kooner, it's "ITP" - Inside the Perimeter, meaning it's an intown place rather than a 'burb. Atlanta geographic lingo is "ITP" or "OTP". I love it. Love it, love it, love it. I'm really happy to be moving for so many reasons. Life is good.
I read your post below v v v & w/out details it's difficult to offer the advice you request. If you haven't already, I would suggest that you simply tell your clientcumfriendcumpsychotic that you are uncomfortable with whatever behaviors you're uncomfortable with & you're sorry you can't help/be of more help, but you just don't feel capable & you maintain/tend the business relationship that you have.
As for the game playing & particularly ambitious people you work with- I don't participate in that, and as a result I often don't win any popularity contests w/folks like that. The path I've carved out for myself in situations like that is to be as cordial as possible, but maintain my integrity. Good luck.
