I had a slow and busy day at work yesterday. I got a little pissed off when one of my colleagues told another team member that no one but Nick helps him and nobody cares. I tried to help this colleague and there are times when he yells at me for helping him. I can never do anything right with this tech. Then, around 2:40 PM I discovered that I have a project that has to be completed by Monday, December 1. Well, I have no instructions on how to complete the project. The PM pushed her responsibility to me instead of getting the instructions for me. Luckily, I found the CIO and he helped me out and I have everything prepped for either late Sunday night or early Monday to complete the project. All I have to do is rename one file on 13 websites. It'll probably take me about 30 minutes.

I am on PTO today and Friday. Thus, another reason I was pissed off about learning that I had this project.

  Wow, I think I would've told the other team member, I don't help you ANY MORE because all you did was yell at me for helping. Let him reflect on that for a bit. There will always be others ready to shove off responsibility for a project that they can't or don't want to do. Not nice but happens. Have a wonderful weekend and don't think about work!!!

We played tennis at 10:30 AM yesterday -- at least that is when most people arrived. David M arrived at 10:15 AM (our scheduled time). He was starting to get worried that people were not coming to play....

Hubby and I defeated David M and Eric 6-2. Then, hubby and I played singles. David J and hubby defeated Andrew and I 7-5. My last set was a disaster. David M and I lost to hubby and Eric 6-1.

We went to Pho Tay Ho for lunch. Andrew came. He usually doesn't go to Pho Tay Ho.

In the late afternoon, emails were sent to discuss renting either a hotel or house for our Palm Springs vacation. I think most people agreed with the house.

We did our grocery shopping yesterday amid a large crowd of people -- in and out in about 30 minutes. Afterwards, we came watched Federer and Wawrinka play doubles against Benneteau and Gasquet. A Swiss win and i was surprised. I didn't think Roger would have played.

We went to play tennis at 2 PM (we got there a little early so I can fix the windscreen). Eric and I lost the first set 6-4 to David and hubby. David and I lost to Eric and hubby 6-2. David and I beat Eric and hubby 12-10 in a tiebreaker.

John had sent out a text message about going to dinner at a Korean restaurant. We waited until David responded to let John know we were available. After David sent a text stating that he had plans and we told John we were available, John sent a text to say they had a big lunch and maybe we should go another time. I knew this is what he was going to do. I know David is the thread that is holding our friendship with John.

I still have not figured out what we ever did to John to have him behave like the way he does toward us.

Well, today, we are playing tennis at 10:15/10:30 AM. Hopefully, we will have an even number.

Another busy day at the office yesterday. I made myself leave at 4:30 PM. I had an errand to take care of -- going to Home Depot.

I made pan seared salmon for dinner. I got the skin crispy. Woo hoo.

Today, we are playing tennis at 2 PM (later in the day and hopefully warmer, too).

Hubby and I will do our grocery shopping in the morning.
