Or as I like to call it, "Friday Eve."

You know, the problem with a long weekend is that the office expects you to stuff a full five-day workday into the remaining four days. I have barely breathed all week. The boss and my co-workers keep coming up with stuff that needs to be done by half-past last week. I am so tired, I can't see straight.

Tonight I had a chat with my upstairs neighbor, the young guy who helps me out from time to time. Remember I told you the management told me the recent fruit fly plague was all my fault? Turns out they told the tenants of every apartment in the entire building that it was all THEIR fault. Meantime there was a lot of standing water nearby. Hello? Flying critter heaven! Then he said he was happy to see me walking without the walker! He said I look terrific and asked if I've been working out (uh, no). I'll tell you, that made my week.

Right now I'm spending a quiet evening with one of my guys (Ted -- watching Chopped) and getting ready to bake a couple of chicken thighs for dinner.

Come on Saturday!

    It sounds like the apartment management is trying to scare everyone there with their fruit fly story. Ugh! Also sorry to hear your work day was so chaotic! Hope your weekend is much more restful and quiet.

    What a great compliment, keep up the good work, on yourself, not the other work, that will all work out. It is amazing how much you can accomplish when you are pushed.

Yay for a great compliment! That is awesome!

    I'm glad you learned the fruit flies were not your problem and everyone was having the problem. I am also glad the weekend is almost here. That is great that you are going without the walker. It must make you feel much better.

    What a nice neighbor to give you a nice compliment, that would make everyones day. Yes a four day workweek has it's drawback of needing to get five days work finished in four----the price one pays

    My DH calls Thursday Friday Eve, too! And I'm sure he would agree with you on stuffing 40 hours into 32!
I know that compliment made your day! Did you do anything special with those chicken thighs?

    Your upstairs neighbor sounds like a lovely young man! I'm glad he's noticed how you're looking, and that you ARE looking so good. I hope your night with Ted has been fabulous, and that your weekend is even better.
