Things at work continue to be crazy busy. We have hit the last of our extensions, so now we either get this application into production, or we all become at risk for . . . for . . . I dunno. I know the Project Manager was told her job was at risk. Not sure what will happen to a peon like me, but now it’s a matter of pride that we get that sucker in So, it’s 12 hour days and weekends until at least the week before Xmas.
Since I have to get back to work in brief here are the highlights of my week:
- Tangerine O’Feral paid me the greatest of cat compliments: a half eaten rodent. I opened up my kitchen door to find Tangerine dashing away and placed squarely on my welcome mat a headless rat with a mighty incision running straight down his chest. While her present was horrific, it speaks volumes as to how she views me. Even though she fled my inside my home six months ago, she has stayed close by outside. But, I guess she still sees me as “mom”. Ahhhhh.
- I was tickled last night when I removed my laptop from my office to get a change of scenery while I worked offline to find that I was able to tap into someone’s wireless signal. Woo hoo! While I love working at home, my office chair is hard on the butt. Much nicer to work in the comfy chair in the sunroom. Free stuff good.
- Despite the stress at work and the impending holidays, I’m in a surprisingly good space – mentally, that is. My house is a complete mess because the last thing I want to do after a long day at work is clean. Even last Saturday when I had some downtime I decided to give myself a sick day. So, for all of Saturday I never got fully dressed and spent most of the day lounging about on the couch watching home decorating shows (ironic considering the state of disarray my own home was in). “Could you please get me some orange juice and a bowl of SpaghettiOs? Please? I’m sick,” I pled with the boyfriend when he came over that evening. He didn’t buy it for a moment. Oh well. I tried.
Back to work!
But first this public service announcement for my feral cat friends:
