It's only Tues...boo.

How's it going?

It's dreary here.  I'm trying to not think about my dad's surgery or DH's interview.  At least it will all be over with today. 

I did get a hotel booked at our halfway point for the trip out to NC.  :D 3.5 more weeks. 

DH and I are thinking about expanding our pantry when we do new counters in the kitchen because it's really small.  After the job stuff gets settled and he finishes the mini-barn, we might start talking to contractors about our counters and the pantry.  EEEEE!!  I also have him close to letting me replace all our appliances to a matching set vs. just replacing the fridge. 

We actually talked a lot about home improvement and renos this weekend.  We're on the same page and timeline.  I'm hoping we can start the kitchen this fall.  

A couple raves from the weekend: 

Costco has a cranberry almond chicken salad and it's amazing. 

I got the cutest sunhat from JCP for FREE because it was $10 and I had a $10 off $10 coupon. 

I also got some awesome deals at Old Navy.  I need to go back and buy their racerback tank in every color because it's super comfy and looks great.  I wish I would have bought more at $2 on Saturday. 
Old Navy tanks are the best.

    Good luck to the conns today.

    I never thought I would care about baseball but I did last night. The other team was asshats all season so I'm glad we beat them. Apparently at tourney level they bring in a high school player to ump. The other coaches started to get in his face over an admittedly bad call. Still high school kid umping little league.

    Good Morning!!  <<less lie more truth

    The sun is shining, and I'm mostly feeling better today.  I did wake up all stuffy but I'll take it if my stomach is better.

    Good Luck to you, Conn, sounds like a somewhat eventful day.

    I am very excited because I got some bumper plates last night, most of you will think (or already do) that I'm a nutso.  But, it's a rubber covered 45# plate rather than the regulars so when I'm doing heavy lifts I can just let go and let it bounce a bit rather than strain to rack/finish my set.  YAY. 

    Also, 6---it's crappy that adults have to ruin the sport for their own kids.
  • Good vibes for the connfamily.

    Sleepy today, still trying to catch up from Pride.  After all that work this weekend, the group had to go attend a city council meeting b/c new councilperson out to prove his agenda, is trying to get "in god we trust" installed as the city motto.  They tabled it, so good.

    I hope I don't have anything this next weekend, I need a break.

    Do it, do it!  When we moved, our new pantry was so much bigger, and a year later, I still love it.  DS goes in there to play, FFS.  Right now, with summer and camp and swim and everything, I have all the giant Costco boxes of snacks, and the kids can just go in and grab an applesauce, cereal bar, w/e.  DH says it looks like a convenience store, but I love it.

    I'm jealous of all your pantries.  TRUE STORY.

  • I'm currently in a 6 hour in-person meeting. Only positive of this situation is that the Project Manager is buying us lunch.
  • Ugh, Barbie.  I can't handle meetings.  
  • Meetings are about 50% of my job - ties into the project management aspect. I'm either in the meetings to develop a plan for them to purchase things or troubleshoot when there are purchasing issues. My biggest project (~$60MM) is driving me a bit crazy with the meetings. I told the project engineer that he needed to stop setting up meetings during lunch or for 4+ straight hours unless he planned to feed us.

    Most of the people I support are outside of TX, so I generally only call in - but this one is being engineered by a team in Houston, so I have to attend in person.

  • If I'm running the meeting, I can handle it.  I get so tired of people wasting time and going off topic at meetings.  Ask the question, get it answered/debated/brainstormed, move on.  If you have another questions, we'll have this new business stuff at the end, okay?

    I've just had too many lately.  There's a time for complaining, I get it, but this is not it.  And since I can't actually tell people to STFU...well, it's not my strong suit.  It always seems like we have meetings for things we don't need, but when we do need a meeting everyone's busy.
  • I keep reading the title of this post as "it's only tues, boo!" with boo meaning sweetie/shortie instead of a thumbs down. And I keep thinking, aw, boo, I know. You're my boo, too, mrs.conn.

  • Between work, the house crap, and just life I am ready to run away. Current house will hopefully be listed this week, we will hopefully make an offer on the other house this week, and I pray work will calm down by Friday. I will probably drink heavily this week (while I clean and lack of course). Now I'm off to go crawl under a rock.
  • Cleaning and 'lacking' are a bitch.  ;)  Drinking is required.

    I have this issue with coworker who straight up freaks about stupid stuff and doesn't about things that ACTUALLY MATTER.  I'm beginning to think he has an oxygen deficiency.
  • I just had to translate an e-mail chain between my boss' boss (Dutch) and one of the other managers (Indian) - hooray for global teams! (I'm hoping I guessed correctly and sent what they wanted.)
