Ka-POW! Almost *golden* :)

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Did get the work out yesterday - there will need to be a temporary workaround until the original system is back in place, but that's fine by me! On top of that, while in the midst of wielding my way through the conference call preparation, I came upon some interesting emails - it seems that I have been recertified for another extension on this assignment - OK, I guess I can take that..........a good ending to a challenging situation!

Ka-POW! Yes!

Not sure I'll meet up for the usual mid-week meal - I'm a bit annoyed with a particular individual.........but I guess if worse comes to worse, I can possibly sit elsewhere - this meal is a good opportunity to get variety and good nutrition if I play my cards right and have good choices available.......one thing's for sure, though - I'll pass on mac and cheese if offered (this is what I'm "taste testing" right now)!

Enjoy that ol' "hump day", Sparkies!

Kicked that Monday to the curb........

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Had an unanticipated (partially) conference call yesterday to address the latest extended tech glitch - hopefully there will be a resolution, since I did get some feedback and info via email during the call........will see what happens today. There is also a separate call scheduled today as a follow-up on another issue (revisions to another part of the current process - that's been working well so far)..........this was the most contact I've actually had with my direct manager (based in IL)..........hopefully I will have proved my mettle somewhat........

Yet another unusual social interaction took place yesterday afternoon - looks like I've been brought into another get-together next week..........I am now thinking "WTH"? This has been an unusually social month - what's up with all that, anyhow? Is this the apocalypse calling?

emoticon

Eating was much better, quality-wise........and despite the lengthened time at the AM gig, I was able to get home (decided not to avoid the place at the last minute) and do all I set out to do before leaving for the afternoon.........

I guess you can say it was pretty much "all good".......... whew!

emoticon

Enjoy your Tuesday, Sparkies!

    Glad your month is a little more social, it may make up for less than social times? Glad your eating is going well so far! Thank you for the support on my blog entries and offering good words of wisdom. I prefer books to movies as well, but once in a while I find good movies~

*Almost* had a great day, BUT ....... :(

Monday, August 18, 2014

....... once again I'm up @ 2AM - for the all too common reason ($#!@# family member)..........

As "Howard Beale" from "Network" (my all-time fave movie) so aptly put it......I'm as mad as #@!@! and I'm not gonna take this anymore!

emoticon

Such a shame it came down to this - the day was almost perfect in its awesome quality......nice surprise visit with an old friend on her b-day ....... she did NOT see this coming as I made plans for a "stealth visit" to her church - I treated her to a nice lunch, then ended the evening with a concert (one of the acts was a major 70's R&B group)......sooooooo, naturally with Murphy's Law being all too present in my life, the overnight sleep period would, of course, have to be compromised - all in time for my having to deal with an aggravating, unsolved tech issue at one of my gigs!

AAAAAGGGGHHHHH! Chocolate, take me away!

emoticon

emoticon = emoticon

Now I'm crossing fingers that today won't be any kind of a repeat of the overnight......

I wish you all a better Monday than I fear I might have.......

  I woke up for an hour and a half last night too and only got 5 hours of sleep. Really feeling it this afternoon.

Hope you get your needed rest tonight.

Still struggling.......

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Am concerned about this coming work week (AM gig tech issues, and a follow-up meeting on process improvements, and one other issue that I'm wondering about).........this is definitely getting in the way of my day today, and my work in getting back on track........

    Is it your food that has you worried? Try packing your own snacks and lunches. That way you have control over what you eat. Good luck with you week. You can do it!

Meh - a bit out of sorts.......

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Bad week on one of the gigs - two consecutive days of technical problems, and insufficient support - I am NOT a happy camper, and next week this will need to be addressed one way or another.........why this should continue to happen is beyond me! It will be interesting to see if one person will be returning - I suspect that the person has been released (based on some activity I witnessed last week), but I will have to wait until Monday to see if my suspicion is confirmed (the coworker was not in the office yesterday).........I am NOT thrilled with this kind of dysfunction!

I will be in a follow-up teleconference on some of the process revisions I was involved with - hopefully that will work well (sure could use some good news here)!

emoticon

Soooooo - the word for the day is "meh"..........I'm not happy that work issues are impacting my weekend, but "it is what it is"............ and now that I don't have all those social events that I dealt with earlier this month, there are no distractions, so I'm ending up thinking about these issues more than I probably should during a weekend........sigh.........

emoticon

Guess I'll just have to wait and see - so, for now, I'll just have to "muddle through".........

Enjoy your Saturday, Sparkies!

    I think the past week makes for a "pamper yourself" weekend. Soak your feet, manicure and pedicure, long soaking bath with candles, a good book, whatever. I've been there, done that as far as getting aggravated with incompetent people. It seems the older I get, the less I tolerate. People just don't have the responsibility and integrity that they used to have.
