I have a friend that I used to work with...more than seventeen years ago! After I moved to another job, we met on a regular basis for lunch. After I had kids, I'd bring them along and she got to watch them grow up, with two or three month gaps! I don't know exactly what happened, but we stopped getting together!
I decided to take Friday off (mental health day!!). DH asked me what I had planned for my day off. I was thinking of meeting one friend, but said this friend's name instead. DH was surprised and mentioned how long it had been since we had seen each other. After thinking about it, I decided that I would ask her to have lunch.
Luckily, she still works at the same place. Otherwise, I'd have been SOL. I called her this morning and we are having lunch! I am so excited! I've seen her a few time in a store or a restaurant, but not when we could really stop and talk. This will be nice! And, to top it off, she works downtown. I rarely go downtown. That means that all of the restaurants down there are "new" to me. Well, except the Subway. But if I have the choice of a Thai restaurant (that my family would NEVER go to) or Subway, I'm not wasting my trip downtown on a samich! LOL! Lunch can be an adventure!
BTW, my other "big" plans for tomorrow? Sleep in. Exercise. Read my book. And, if I read my book correctly, that will lead right into a nap! Yep, that's it! That's my big day. Spark y'all tomorrow!

Here in Southern Idaho, we have had a fairly mild winter. Since I live in a valley (and other meteorological things I don't pay attention to), we generally have very mild weather. But, we do have all four seasons. At least we DID...until this year.
I swear that I am sitting in my house with jeans, a long sleeve tee and a sweatshirt and I'm still cold! (Of course, the heat is turned off, but don't get into the details!) Every softball game I've gone to for DD, I've worn at least two layers (usually 3 or 4), taken at least one blanket and still been cold! High today, 51. I should be complaining about the heat by now!!! LOL!!
This weekend, highs in the 80's. I am not complaining about that. I am complaining that it is going to jump from 60-something to 80-something in three days. Why can't it jump in one day instead? I want to be warm!!!!
Okay, I'm done whining...well done whining about the weather....for now!

Today, I was "invited" to a meeting in my boss' boss' boss' office. Of course I was there to explain why things were not perfect and to receive all of the action items.
The part that bugs me is that one of my action items was to develop a timeline for Project A. The only problem is that Project A, which I thought should have been mine from the outset, was given to someone else a few months ago. Now, I am being asked for that timeline.
So...I asked the "owner" of Project A for a timeline. And yes, I put his boss on the e-mail! Okay, so his boss and my boss are the same guy and I really don't expect to get a timeline from him. BUT, this is a subtle (or maybe not so subtle?) "told ya so!" to remind folks that this technically isn't my project! I expressed my displeasure of having this project taken away from me at the beginning. The reasons for assigning it to "him" were given and that was that. Good thing I've been "helping" all along, huh?
The best man for the job is a woman!
