I'm swamped at work.. can I say that today is the 2nd time in less than two weeks that I've wanted to throw in the towel?! Once I get passed this horrible hump/project, things will go better. Oh, did I tell you that horrible hump/project is my job?! Lol.
For the record, I was able to work from home yesterday. I didn't tell family/friends that I was home because I wanted to make sure that I wasn't interrupted, but it was nice that I got to go back to sleep for an extra hour or so. Unfortunately, I think that I will be able to work-from-home this weekend... meaning way too much to do so that I will be forced to work in order to meet the deadline.
Running into some troubles with the Christmas shopping season. Usually for nephew and Bff's girls, they get presents for their birthday and money on Christmas for their savings. That's fine but BFF's seven-year-old turns 8 on the 24th Dec and this year, she wants Squinkies. That means that I need to battle everyone else for toys that seem to fly off the shelf. Half the time, the retail workers have no clue what I am talkign about when I say that I need squinkies... after much shelf-searching, however, they all agree they are sold out. AHHHHH! So now, I get to trudge from store to store looking for a gift before THAT deadline. It's the ONLY thing that she wants this year for her birthday. Yikes.
Did well on my lunch today. I had packed a turkey meal Lean Cuisine but went to the cafeteria instead for fresh Grilled Salmon w/ pesto on a bed of spinach, brown rice, fresh fruit, 2 tomato slices and a few pickle slices. Yum. Not too expensive either.. $6.28 with tax. Bargain :) I also managed to log my breakfast and snack into the tracker.. Whooo! Gettign ready for BLC15 in January. I believe my work will have a similar contest, also in January.
