Merry Christmas and all that stuff

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

I went in to work yesterday and slogged through assigning acuity to about a 150 or so cases I'm doing a project with. About 12:30 I decided enough and left for the day. Made a quick stop at the grocery store for sweet potatoes and baguettes and some chips for hubby.

I finally feel good again. Just have a slight lingering cough that's worse in the morning. Dixie and I will head out to the park later today and resume our mileage. She'll enjoy that. It looks like the majority of the snow will be to the south of us tonight. I'll vote for that since I hate the 2 hour commutes when the roads are bad. Skype both my sons later today and wish all a Merry Christmas.

Doing well. Yesterday a co-worker brought in a box of chocolates which I avoided for a few hours until I gave up and had some. My boss walked in later in the morning and asked who brought them in and the rest of us pointed to the culprit and said in unison "she did". Reminded me of that scene from Body Snatchers when they point out the non-alien - Donald Sutherland with his mouth gaping.

Quiet day for today and back to work tomorrow. More charts, more numbers and hopefully a conclusion to the project. I hope to hear about the job by the end of the week. Keeping my fingers crossed. The rest of the week looks to be paperwork catch up. Hubby and I are going to plug a hole the squirrels chewed in the soffit/siding and check for any more. Suckers are bad. I had a raccoon get in one year. THAT was a nightmare. It took multiple times to finally secure it out and repair the damage. It took a piece of sheet metal under the siding, screwed in and then superglued the siding on top. Those guys are strong when they want in. Discovered if you spray the areas they are getting in or bothering with pine-sol, it masks the scent trail they leave. Works for mice as well.

So, Merry Christmas and have an enjoyable day! Ham going into the oven later this afternoon. Waiting on hubby to wake up (he normally gets up around 1) to start on things. His lunch is my dinnertime. He worked last night but got off early too. I'm letting him sleep, he's been working 7 days a week.
