Well,this sucks

The folks that have been laid off have reached their final days.  Starting today and through the rest of the week, they hit their last day and they're gone.

Some of them are actual friends.

Stupid corporate cheapskates.

I'm getting so sick of some of the people I have to work with.  Some lazy, some people with no critical thinking skills, some people with no off switch...

So tired of it.

Went to MOA yesterday.  Forgot that a lot of walking bothers my knee.  Paid for it for the rest of the afternoon.

Did pick up some dvds that were on sale at least.  And the place wasn't too crowded.  But my knee kind of prevented enjoying the experience.  I need to pay off the evaluation before I can have the surgery though, and that was two grand :(

I hate city drivers

Can't stay in their lane, can't drive below the speed limit, can't use turn signals...

ugh.  I guess that's one drawback to living in a big city.

That's how many emails I had waiting for me this morning.  And a meeting right when I walked in.

Good thing about today - the email servers went down about 1130, and didn't come up till almost 2.  That gave me a few hours where I could read, delete and/or file the ones that came while I was out, without the distractions of more coming in that needed to be dealt with 'right now'.

So there was that.  Then I came home, had a baked potato for dinner, and I think it was bad, because I have not been feeling well since. :(

Well, that's that.

Back to work tomorrow.  I can only imagine what's waiting for me.  Well, really, I don't want to imagine.  I really don't want to go back, but I kind of have to.

Could have used another week or two of vacation. :)

I had to remember my password :)

Today was the 4th day of my little 'stay-cation'.  I've been pretty good about not connecting with work this time.  I peeked Monday night which kind of messed up my day Tuesday, but I've stayed away since then.  The idea is to take a break, get a mental reset out of the deal.  I have tomorrow and the weekend to keep my brain away...and I'm thinking I'm really going to need more time to get really disconnected.

Today was a busy day.  I started late, after the storms and rain had gone away.  Then I went to Menard's to get birdseed and a needle-nosed pliers.  Then I came home, pulled the leaky valves out of the tub with the new pliers. Then I left to go to the plumbing supply store to get new valves.  Came back home, put the new valves in.  still have a drip. :(  but it's better than the leak we had at least.  and I couldn't get the pipe cover all the way back on, so I don't know.  I may have to call a plumber anyway.

Then I left home again, and went to the comic book store, got a few, then went to BW3's for lunch.  then I came home for the rest of the day.  I watched some episodes of ST TNG till T came home, then we went out for dinner at Culvers.  Then we came home again, watched the news and Hawaii 5-0.  Then she went to bed and I watched chopped and then reset the dish so I could watch cutthroat kitchen - it was missing from the list but a reset brought it back.

For being on vacation, I did quite a bit today :)
