First..Happy Hump Day!!!
Now on to my rant for today. We've lost a lot of people at work in the last 6 months, for whatever reasons. Most have done it the right way. They gave notice, took their personal stuff home, cleaned up the cube. But one person didn't. This person went on vacation then emailed that he was quitting. This happened at Christmas time last yr. Well....now we're getting new people in and we need that cube he was in. And since I'm in a loll right now with my project, I was asked if I would clear out thus person's cube. I said yes...I mean the pays the same no matter what I do, right? HA! I knew this person was somewhat of a pack rat...but have you seen the TV show Hoarders? This cube should have gotten it's OWN hour show! Not only was this person a pack rat but he was just plain a slob to boot! There was spilled something all over the desk top, it had dried and was acting as some kind of super glue, gluing his PC monitor to the desk, food stains on the carpet, stuff (I don't know what!) stuck to the filing cabinets. I must have bagged up enough wire to circle the globe a few times (OK..maybe not that much...but it seemed like it!
) All in all it took me over 6 hrs to clean up a 5 x 8 cube. But I got it done! And now we just hope the janitorial staff will vacuum the cube. OH and BTW...all the dust in that cube has given a little headache! OK..that's my rant for today!
Things are better are home, we talked about the money thing last night. I am going to help pay for the race fees this weekend. Hubby will be putting that money and the money for the new pond pump back in the safe...over time. Which is OK with me right now. It was a comprise that I can live with. I'll have to drive out to the track on Fri night after work as I can't take the day off to go out there. But there's no racing Fri night...we'll just be setting things up in the pits.
Eating is good so far today. I don't know about tonight. We have to run to some friends house when I get home from work. Last night was right on spot for my calorie intake. I did my work out and have started going for a walk with the guys at work for my last break. It's less then a mile but fun and it does count.
So I guess that's about it for now. Have a great rest of Hump Day!
