  • Re: TGI-Tuesday?

    I took today off because I had a doctor's appointment kinda far away that was right smack dab in the middle of the day. I got ALL the Zoey cuddles this morning, and then after my appointment I ran a few errands and grabbed some lunch. I'm about to head to the gym, do a few chores, and then sew a bit. I suppose I should be a good wife and make dinner tonight since I didn't work today. 

    This weekend was really fun! On Friday we hung out at a friend's apartment and had some yummy BBQ. We watched Neighbors 2 and also attempted to make homemade gummy bears. They were NOT good, but that just means we need more practice. On Saturday H and I deep cleaned the apartment, and Saturday night we hosted a big going away party for my former coworker. I really enjoyed meeting a lot of her friends, and everyone had a great time. Also, I discovered that mango flavored vodka is very dangerous because it tastes like juice, so I don't realize how heavily I'm drinking. Whoops!

    On Sunday we had lunch with the ILs to celebrate FIL's birthday, and then we went back to their new house to help them unpack a bit. They have so much stuff it's unreal. MIL has hoarding tendencies. Afterwards, we met some friends for dinner and then went and saw a special screening of The Neverending Story at a nearby AMC. The movie was full price, which was lame, but it was cool to see it on the big screen. 

    Yesterday H and I slept in, and then we met some friends for lunch. I convinced him to go to TJs after lunch, and we bought ALL the yummy frozen food, chocolate, and wine. We had some of their frozen garlic naan and chicken tikka masala last night for dinner, and it was NOMS! I did a bunch of chores afterwards, and H vegged since it was a long weekend and he had to work today.

    We're still waiting to hear back on the dog we want to adopt. The rescue is suuuuuper slow since they're all volunteers who work full-time jobs. Allegedly we'll hear from someone today to go over our application. Fingers crossed it works out!

    @minskat30 Oh geez, poor Ani! I'm so sorry that she is so sick! Poor girl. I really hope she feels better ASAP.

    @LizzyTish88 LOVE the shirts! Super cute! How cool that your cousin has a vinyl cutter and press. She should sell some of that stuff on Etsy!

    @labro So jealous of your desk. What a great way to work after a long weekend! Love the house--looks great!

    @speakeasy14 That is so amazing that your BF decided to quit smoking! Way to go! That's so impressive that he resisted all weekend too-- I really hope it sticks! 

    @PamBeesly524 Congrats to your boss! Hope everything goes smoothly at work for you while she's out.
  • Re: Hump Day

    @labro I would absolutely count it towards your goodreads challenge! I count any book read, even if it's a re-read or a novella, towards my goal. 

    @speakeasy14 at my old job we did everything online, and PTO requests would be automatically submitted to my manager via email for approval. At the new job we have a mix of online and email. I have to log my time online each day, but PTO requests I email to my manager, she approves and then forwards to our dept admin, who then puts it in my outlook calendar. I then go in to the online system to log it as approved PTO for the dates effected. Cumbersome for sure. 

    Ugh my tablet really hates TK. Every time I try to scroll up to re-read everyone's posts so I can comment, the page blanks out. I'm too chicken shit to log on from my work comp just yet. Haven't been here a month, and there are only so many non-work things I want to pull up on my computer right now. Sorry for being a bad friend and all the weird formatting! I promise I read everything And am literate. 

    yesterday H got home waaaaaay early, and I was infinitely jealous. He sent me lots of Zoey pics just to rub it in. I went home, changed into PJs, and relaxed with him and the pup. I got a really bad headache and cough though, so I took a Benadryl and crashed early. Such a party animal, I tell ya. Ps my tablet tried to correct party animal to apartheid, and I can't stop laughing. 

    Tonight i I need to hit the gym, make dinner, and work on a quilt. Audrewuh and I are sewing tomorrow night, so I want to make a certain amount of progress before then. 

    Ive been such a baller at work this week. I keep getting compliments from my coworkers and my manager. I love how good I am at this job. Such a confidence booster. 

    Thats all I Got!
