Wow it’s been a killer week and today was no exception. As usual I didn’t want to roll out of bed, but I did. I woke up a few times during the night. Headed in and there is a local event in town so the normal way I go had all of the streets blocked off. Thanks to Siri I found a new way to get to work, it’s quicker and easier. It’s always good to have options. Going home shouldn’t be a problem.
The BBQ for lunch was outstanding, it’s already talking back to me. I found myself surrounded in a room by co-workers. I noticed that everyone was having conversations, I was in a crowd of people and felt all alone. I talked a little bit but not a whole lot. Then after sitting for a while I got up and left. That was a challenge in it’s self because there was cookies for desert and they were so good. Now were all trying to work and fighting off the food coma.
I got an email from the boss that were going to have an emergency meeting in 5 minutes. Holy crap that has never happened. I figured it was something big… like a change in management, a serious problem. Nope it was just advance notice that our email addresses are changing next week. Wow, thanks for the heart attack.
I remembered after lunch that I needed to go grab my medicine, so I made a mad dash to the pharmacy. It’s cheaper to have medicine filled at work, because they give discounts that aren’t available to the public. I got 100 Sudafed tablets for $29, which is a good deal. It’s way cheaper than if I had it filled at a retail pharmacy, since it is not covered by insurance. Nice to know where to get a break from.
We have a new person starting on Monday and her last name has been quite the challenge for me. I have had quite the time of trying to get her machine named correctly. Finally I have it. Her equipment is all setup, just waiting for her drive to finish encrypting and then I have to make sure it’s compliant – then I can finally get this thing off of my desk. In the middle of setting up her office, I heard she won’t be here officially until Thursday. That takes off some of the pressure but I like to have everything ready to go on the date of hire, just in case. It’s been my practice since day 1 and I don’t want to stray from it now.
As for the weekend, no special plans per say. I need to pick up momma’s medicine and I may do that tonight or I may put it off until tomorrow. There is the usual shopping and laundry to take care of. I have thought about taking a trip but going full bore all week has really worn me out. I may just stay home and take it easy. Back to five days next week and that will suck but those are the breaks.
I hope that you have a great weekend and accomplish what needs to be done as well as having some fun. Cheers to the weekend!
