Hello to Everyone! Nothing much going on here today, it is dreary now and cold
Joan, aren’t you excited about seeing your sis this month when she comes to Jersey??! Or, has that been put on hold till her daughter can get out there? Sending good thoughts to cheer those who are down or not feeling well! I’ll grab a cuppa joe as I head on out!8 October, 2009 at 1:08 pm #496508
*slides a cuppa joe to KH* I am totally stoked to see Jroc!8 October, 2009 at 1:43 pm #496509
Morning, all; just popping in for a second before another crazy day at work starts. Joan, I’m glad Leela survived the windstorm and had a furry friend nearby I hear you about shaking up routines, too. I’m trying to do that in a couple of areas and keep running into roadblocks (mainly money and stupid people who can’t answer questions – argh). Then I get frustrated and wonder why I’m bothering – is there anything really wrong with the routine I’ve got?
Enough philosophizing, off to work. I’ll take a mug of black java and a small orange snugglebutt to keep me company. I gave my orangie a sample of the Fancy Feast appetizers this morning (Walmart freebie – thanks Dee!) and he loved it so much he snarfed it right up. Unfortunately, he then promptly barfed it right up I knew he was eating too fast, and I tried to slow him down, but he was plowing through it, with predictable results – yuck.8 October, 2009 at 2:48 pm #496510
Morning everyone! Woke up this morning with the same weird feeling as yesterday morning. Wish that would stop. Making myself an early lunch today, then school, then cleaning, then back to school again for more classes. Nothing exciting. Could use a break, though. I can’t wait until the weekend. This week feels so long8 October, 2009 at 3:10 pm #496511
Thoroughly Thursday Greetings from M’waukee on another dreary day! The leaves are brightening it up though! Hope this day flys for I am headed to the sticks tomorrow to button up the place for the Winter/blah don’t say that word! Hmmm I need my java jolt to get the day started even though it is already 10 AM here! Wishes for all to have a great day/evening and up-coming weekend wherever you hang your hat & keep your cat/s!8 October, 2009 at 3:23 pm #496512
Morning family and friends! Its a cool but very sunny morning here in the Old Pueblo, supposed to only get to the mid 70′s YAY if that really happens! Must have slept wrong, neck is in a crick so got to do something about that. Off to see what I can get into before I loose steam to do anything, lol.8 October, 2009 at 3:27 pm #496513
Morning all. Gini, I just hate when you get that vague feeling of dread and don’t know the cause. Do your best to shake it off and go on. I am taking an early lunch with friends today and I think that a big ole BLT is calling my name. The place where we are lunching does awesome BLT’s with loads of bacon. I hope they have a good soup today too.
Hope everyone has a good day!8 October, 2009 at 3:45 pm #496514
Can I just whine for a minute? I have to come to work 2 hours early one day next week, to attend a 100% pointless HR seminar on “Playing to Win”. Ugh. Please, just shoot me.8 October, 2009 at 3:55 pm #496515
My condolences, Kilroy—don’t you hate it when you feel your time is wasted? We had ‘an important meeting’ after school yesterday so that some big-wig from the ad. bldg. could tell us (actually, read to us) something that they had emailed us earlier in the day. I feel your pain. . .8 October, 2009 at 3:58 pm #496516
Boy I can sympathize, Kilroy. They have us going to three four-hour sessions on a Healthy Workplace Environment…learning how to get along with your maddening coworkers.
Probably a couple of faculty got testy with each other, so now we ALL have to go to this training. Just reprimand the naughty faculty and let me do my job, dammit.8 October, 2009 at 5:12 pm #496517
Hi everyone. Hugs to all that need it.
Been there Kilroy..I hate when they waste your time like that. Aggravates me to no end.
Went to the dentist this morning…thought I was only getting one tooth fixed..oh no..it was 2 in the front..so I had 2 shots in my upper lip..yeah..that’s fun. Came home..Wayne made a mess trying to fix breakfast for Maddie and Abbie and just left the mess, so I have been trying to catch up since I came home…At least the girls are napping now and I finally have the kitchen straightened up. I think I am going to catch a small nap while I can..these nights with Abbie are kicking my rear!8 October, 2009 at 5:18 pm #496518
I remember those days, CM… it was really difficult as I also had a full-time job. (like many many others)
At work thinking of all the things I need to get done at home… the shopping, the cleaning… all kinds of things and wondering why I have spread myself so thin. Thursdays at loooong days. Work, training and hula. Had to finally nix country dancing after hula. Just too much.
Can someone tell my why it is that men just don’t seem to be able to plan things?? At least it my world. We do the same thing every weekend. It’s getting a bit too routine for me. Last night I suggested we do something different on Friday night. He’s ‘thinking about it’… *sigh*8 October, 2009 at 5:27 pm #496519
Siobhan, can you send that training over to my company. I know a few people who need some retraining on working with each other. Also we need some ediquette training – how to now annoy your cubicle neighbor with your eating habits and bodily noises. Glad to hear your back is feeling better, Siobhan.
CM, the joys of parenting. Now if Wayne wouldn’t make such a mess. Sorry you had to have two teeth worked on. I hate the dentist as I have an extremely sensitive mouth. They have to give me some sort of numbing before they can give me the shot of novacaine.
Gini, hope you can shake this strange sense you are feeling. Taco and Feeny give your Momma some purrs and headbonks to make her feel better.
I was suppose to go to an interview after work yesterday but I cancelled it because after researching the company, it looked as though the company was way too small for me (only 130 employees total for the whole company with HQ in New York and the SF office not even listed). I know I should have at least gone. My mistake and of course it is off the list of opportunities. Shouldn’t let the opportunites go away in this bad economy. It was an investment company and I have mixed feelings about them. Oh well. Next one comes along I will at least go to the interview.
Kykat, you BLT has me salivating. I love a good BLT sandwich where they pile on the bacon. When I order a BLT, I ask for the bacon to be extra crispy as I like my really cooked. Unfortunately the deli near my office doesn’t make any that have me salivating. Darn!
Well, I didn’t win the $122 million and now it is at $145 million. Step-mom didn’t buy a lotto ticket either on Tuesday. I don’t understand why she will buy tickets for raffles and other things but not a lotto ticket. She always wins at the raffles. All I want is my bills to be paid off and a little extra in the bank. Pipe dreams.
Really tired this morning and am looking forward to the day I can move closer to work and not have to fight the horrible traffic (which seems to be getting worse).8 October, 2009 at 5:30 pm #496520
Yeouch, CM, sorry to hear about the needle *shudder*. Also about the mess, but at least you can control that (sort of). Phooey on Wayne for leaving you a mess to clean up. Hope you can grab a nap.8 October, 2009 at 5:38 pm #496521
2Popoki, I could never get ex to plan something even when we tried taking turns planning something. I always ended up planning something for his turn because he just couldn’t make up his mind or so he said. It really was that he was too lazy and expected me to take care of everything like his mother did for him. So glad he is gone from my life. What a waste of time and effort!
