Monday. Again.

Even though I was out of town for the weekend, and it felt like a mini-vacation, coming back was a bit tough.  Especially when one person is out due to a family emergency, probably for the whole week, and I get to pick up her slack with little to no prep.

After work, I tried cleaning up the living room a little, organizing a certain someone's magazines that she hasn't read in, oh, forever.  We watched Hawaii 5-0 after dinner, and I played a little LOTRO and EVE till bedtime.  Good distractions from the mess that is work.

Lack of Planning...

..on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.  A lot of people at work need to learn that phrase, and live by it.

Visited the dr today - amongst my different ailments, I apparently have dry eyes.  So now I have to learn how to put eyedrops in.  by myself.  I hate that.  I always miss!

Really kind of sums it up.  I hate having to cover for other people's panic modes at work.  It gets old really fast.

Another fast day

it does help to be busy all the time - it makes the day go faster.

Although I'm tired at the end of the day, leaving little energy to get the stuff I need done around the house and yard.

Hard to believe

Monday's already come and gone.  I think it helped that I was busy at work today.

Maybe that's what my nephew needs - work.

That wasn't so awful

work was only 2.5 hours this morning.  Of course, it's going to be awesome hectic all week, and most of next.  In preparation of that...I played on the computer all day :)

(except for a couple-three breaks to do laundry and dishes).

Also, is it just me, or is that Hopper commercial just annoying as...heck?

Relatively stress free

Slept in (yay), went shopping in the afternoon, had some greek food for dinner, then went and saw Wizard of Oz on the IMAX screen.  When we got home, I played LOTRO for a while, before heading to bed.

I get to work tomorrow. Lucky me!

and payday - paid some bills after work.  Wish I could just pay them all off. C'mon powerball!

Tomorrow is errand day, and going to the movies, so it'll be a busy day.

One more day till the weekend

Here's hoping I can survive Friday.  Of course, I have to work Sunday, so it'll be a short weekend anyway.

Stop changing things!

Google messing with the menus I mean - it's getting harder to find/remember how to get where I want to go.

I don't even want to talk about work today.  I was so busy, I didn't have time to breathe.  Sometimes that's good, sometimes not.  Today was most definitely a not kind of day.

Tired and wiped out.

Hate feeling like this.  just drained, and not really enthused about much.

Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Another Monday come and gone

Work went like a rollercoaster today - busy then not then busy.  It was nice outside at lunchtime tho.  Supposed to warm back up again, unfortunately.

Watched the season premiere of Bones tonight - they'll probably drag this story line on all season long.  I'm over it.

Shopping day

Got some groceries today, played on the computer...and that was the extent of the weekend.

Next weekend will be busier!

Very Lazy Day

I played computer games today.  I cleaned up the kitchen a little, but mostly, I just sat in front of the computer all day.

I was kind of relaxing actually :)

Swamped day

all kinds of work to do, emails to get through, and then found out I have to go (get to go?) to Denver for a business trip at the end of the month.

At least it won't be raining by then (I hope!)

Slowly getting back to normal

Long drive on Monday made Tuesday rough.  Early morning meeting (that went for 4 hours) on Wednesday made that day rough.  Today was the first chance I got to catch up on emails at work, and begin to unpack and put stuff away from our trip.

Eventually, things will get back to normal.  Or what passes for normal :)

Wedding Day

Well, the wedding went off without a hitch.  The chapel was airconditioned, thank goodness and so was her house where we had the reception.

Now it's time to relax in the coolness of my parent's basement.  :)  Two more days till we go home, I get to go back to work, and back to being grumpy.

Action Packed Day

We had a BBQ, we had a tour of my sister's house, we watched a movie, I managed to get in some LOTRO time.  Love these kinds of vacation days - and I have a few more of them the rest of the week!

That was a long day

Drove from Avoca to Denver in 10 hours. And of course, while we're here, the temps at home drop to reasonable levels - perfect State Fair weather.

Tomorrow is family BBQ and maybe hunting for a small fan to use to cool off, since it's supposed to remain hot here.

I do not miss the heat. Not one bit.
