The Computer Is At The Doctor's

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

That's right friends and virtual family...i finally had to take the computer to the doctor... luckily, that doctor is my boss...so hopefully it will be fixed soon...and with little money...i tried doing all i could, with the little computer knowledge i have...then tried the cable company that i go through for my internet...after an hour, it was quite appearant that i needed more than over the phone consultation...so tomorrow morning, the computer will be bundled up and taken to work for the boss to take home and give it some tender love and care...we think it may just be the network card...reasonably cheap and quick to fix....so hopefully this kitty will be pouncing all over SP by the weekend or early next week....i miss you all and our daily talks...and espcially my morning coffee... be good and talk to you real soon.

    I am a puter idiot. If mine breaks I'm in trouble. There is only one person I know of that fixes them in my little town and she's usually busy and it takes forever. Hopefully yours only has a bit of a cough and will be all better soon. Tell your boss to be very careful with how much he spends fixing it cause you don't get paid enough to pay a lot to fix it. lol You take care ... hopefully youre staying on plan while youre away. Hugs.

A Funny & A Not Funny

Monday, March 09, 2009

First the funny...ok...at work...yep...work again...the toilet broke...well...the flusher part did...when you had to flush, you had to reach in the back of the toilet and pull the stopper...cold...and yuk....lol....after doing this a couple times (i drink alot of water and coffee) i got tired of doing this...so i put a paperclip on the plastic thingy, tied a rubberband to it and hooked it around the knob...you still have to lift the lid, but you don't have to go in search of the stopper :) and that friends is how a kitty rigs a toilet... they all think it's quite funny...tehe...

and for the not so funny...my computer has caught a nasty bug...one that won't let me sign onto the internet...says something about aquiring IP address :( i'm sad...and i miss SP very much...i will get this sorted and hopefully be back with my virtual family very soon. hugs.

Today's Daily Dare

Sunday, March 08, 2009

Today i dare you to start planning for next week. This was the dare i threw out to 4 teams today...and here is my plan for the week.

Packing my breakfast, snack and lunch.
To pack for each meal-the checklist:
Breakfast-protein (soy butter, egg, etc)
grains (cereal, toast, etc)
milk (low fat milk, yogart, cheese, etc)
fruit (banana, grapes, strawberries)

Snack-anything i did not eat at breakfast (and there is always something)

Lunch-protein (tuna, chicken, beans, etc)
grains (rice, bread, etc)
Vegetable (broccoli, carrots, salad, etc)
fruit-(applesauce, peach, pear, etc)
milk-(cottage cheese, cheese, etc)

Snack-i did not eat at lunch (and there is usually something) or a 100 calorie snack pack

Dinner-same as lunch

Snack-if i really need one at this point, i will view where i am lacking, like needing 1 more milk product. If i am not lacking, i will eat a fruit or vegetable type snack, a 100 calorie snack pack, depending what i am "craving" at the time.

I also bought some healthier snacks. I will be dividing them up into serving sizes and in baggies for not only me, but the kids. This saves money from buying the snack packs, but makes it easier to keep to the portions.

I am also putting together a daily To Do list that will include my schedule-including exercise, what time and what kind.

    Sounds like a good idea Kitty! I will sit down and try to plan my week. Monday is a fundraiser for the school at Chuck E Cheese, so will have to work that in. I really do not care for their pizza, but the last time that I had their salad bar, I didn't feel good afterward, so I am afraid to try it again.

Talk to you later and happy planning!

    Since I have been ordered to take tomorrow off as a sick day, I will use tomorrow to plan out the rest of my week. I'm really looking forward to the extra time to get myself in gear. I have a lot going on this month. I have got to get it together!!

Great idea, Kitty!!

"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." This is why I'm a planner!

    I hope she will get used to the noise soon. I got a little story for ya. When I was a kid, one of the places we lived was an apartment RIGHT across a fire department. It took awhile to get used to sleeping through a fire engine roaring in the middle of the night. emoticon

And The Office Laughs Together

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

at me...uhg...lol...i felt like an updated modern version of I Love Lucy today... so let me tell ya the story... the customer wants the original copy of a bill of lading...but without the tracking sticker over the bill to info...which mind you...should not be there anyways... i try to explain that the stickers don't come off..just tear off...leaving a hole...so he wants me to call the shipper..the shipper can't fax their copy because it's in transit to the filing room... so back to me...i have to get this sticker off...after explaining to him and his boss that i can't... he orders me to ask my boss if i can...i then explain it isn't a matter of what the boss says i can or cannot do...it will still rip a hole in the page either way...leaving nothing there... not even the billing information... he then tells me to write it on there and fax to him... i can't do that...that is a legal document...so i go to my boss...what should i do...he calls his boss...who says get a hair dryer and heat it up...ok..yea...like we all bring our hair dryers to work with us... now this is the point where you have to imagine... i'm in a panic...the customer wanted this 10 minutes before he called...and it's now 20 minutes after he called... so i grab the heater from under my desk...me in front of it...sweating mind you...holding the paper against it to heat the sticker...and i start the job of pulling it away from the paper...with my dear boss cheering me on with "go slowly... slowly...don't rip it...sloooooowly...." at this point...all i can do is growl "this is going way above and beyond the call of duty" which got the everyone in the office laughing... and yea... me to...lol... after all is said and done...i got it off...and it didn't even look like anything was over the bill to info....my job was done... and they say customer service is an easy job...hmph... i'll beg to differ... emoticon

    Yeah, I guess the customer IS always "right"...and I'm sure customer service is very difficult most of the time. You did great yesterday! Hopefully your employer recognizes all that you do.
