Remember the song and this movie. Wow, just saying that makes me feel old!
So I am all geared up for the holiday weekend. An extra day off and to boot were closing the office early today. Love that! This is the only place that I have worked at that closes early on a Friday before a holiday weekend, no matter what the holiday.
Instead of taking Mass Transit this morning, I decided to drive in. I could get used to that really quickly. However, it would cost so much in gas that it’s really not worth it. Once and a while yeah but every day nope. Traffic was light due to the holiday, lots of people schedule today off. Parking in the garage was easy as coming over on the weekend, pull in and park on the 1st level.
In case you can’t tell I really don’t have much going here. Yeah, there is stuff for me to do but I am not too motivated today. I have done some work. Boss man got his home pc that I configured for him and he really likes it. I knew he would. Hopefully when we return on Tuesday he will really like the desktop speakers I hooked up for him yesterday. They sound wonderful and they are just cheap speakers.
I had my guy call over to Lowes to see about renting a carpet cleaner. Pretty cheap 24 hours – 24 dollars, plus chemicals. I figure rent it for two days and labor cleaning the carpets. Then as soon as I go to return the damn thing the cats will get sick and puke on the clean carpet. That is always the way it goes. I want to buy one but since money is extra tight now, I figure renting is the next best thing to get the job done. Plus it will make the mister happy.
My shoulder/nick is better but I still am in some pain. Two days of rest and muscle relaxers not to mention about a 1/2 bottle of Ibuprofen and life isn’t too bad. I think I need new pillows and a bigger bed. Every time I wake up to move my bed partner (jumper) decided to start talking. Shut up it’s time to sleep, we can talk in the morning! He just wants to snuggle.
Leaving early today and going home ot take a nap sounds really nice. We are going out to eat at Longhorn Steakhouse. The mister has wanted to go there for a while. I hate steak so I will get chicken or fish. It’s not cheap in fact I think they might just be more expensive than Outback. I’d just as soon go there and get my Alice Springs Chicken. That is good stuff!
I’ve been using my Unlimited Data Plan with AT&T and listening to Pandora One. Love the Techno Radio. I paid for a month. You get 6 skips per hour after that, it’s time to change stations. Since I’m driving I just pause the music and hit the CD Button. Otherwise it would look like I was texting and driving. An Annual Subscription goes for $36 and I’m giving it some serious thought. They have everything and I can listen to it in the car, at my desk at work, on my home PC, on my laptop and in my room via my Roku.
Feeling a bit tired and also a bit horny. Looking outside it’s rain and overcast gloomy sky. It will be like that most of the weekend. Sure glad I didn’t wash my car yet. That will happen this weekend, if it stops raining.
I need to visit another facility, it’s local but about 2 hours away. I have been trying to get there for two weeks and something always gets in my way. I’m thinking that next week I can make that happen. It would be an excuse to stop off at the smorgasbord for a nice lunch and some bread pudding but at the company’s expense. I hope that can happen! I really want to get this trip out of the way.
Speaking of trips, I need to go back and configure WIFI in one place and then travel to another place and do a fresh install. That is something I am not looking forward to. If it’s going to happen, I pray we do it before the weather turns cold. Flying in the winter doesn’t sound like fun at all.
Well before someone catches me I guess I should get back to work. The thrill of getting caught. I guess I’m living on the edge now! Take care and I hope you have a great holiday weekend. Stop and leave me a comment about your plans for the weekend. I will talk with you peeps later!
