Well the fitbit is tracking my sleep on its own again... *shrugs*
I did fairly well nutritionally, until the end of the night. Still over all not bad. A little low on fiber and a little high on fat and cals. I was less than 200 cals above my range though. Considering I did so much walking yesterday (12497 steps) I don't think it'll be too damaging.
Got my German homework done before class I feel reasonably confident that I didn't utterly fail the test we had, and I got all 15 points of extra credit for writing that poetry last week.
Pyschology paper was done. Some trash was taken out. Got to watch an NCIS episode. All in all a good night.
Today is my middle sisters birthday :) I'll have to have the kids call and wish their auntie happy birthday.
Math and Business Docs will be done at lunch
Work - leaving early
Heading to Natural Pantry then home
Make pitas n tuna salad with A
Woo Hoo! My friend got an exercise bike (the kind I can use with the peddles out front) for her (now) ex. He never used it and she has her treadmill which suits her better. So it is an unused one. And she's giving it to me :) My MIL and I will be going to get it on Friday :D Extra awesome since they're still trying to figure out if they're going to complete my order for my elliptical and it's still snow and ice outside so running is still out. So Excited!
Of course. Every silver lining has clouds. So, we thought I had gotten leave donated. HR wouldn't answer or call back to check on leave donation status. The union emailed to people (but the lawyers -more than half the staff- weren't informed of the request going out) on time but didn't post me onto the website in a timely manner so since their site said names are pulled off when they get their time and I wasn't on there a week after I asked to be, we thought I had it. No. Turns out they take their time. They posted it after the pay period. So, I got less than a day of leave donated and since they didn't get it all before the 15th I only got 30 taxable dollars of leave in my pay (like 2 hrs) and another 4.5 added to my leave to use later. The bigger catch? I can't use it unless I have another emergency where I exhaust all of my leave beforehand again (this is the first emergency I've needed to use up all of my leave for in the 4.75 years I've worked here). I can't use it for routine stuff and I can't cash it out to make up for a low paycheck this payday. I got less than half a paycheck worth of pay today.
The only upside is bills were current, we had reserved some from taxes - intended for food money during the summer when I don't take classes - that we can use to keep us afloat till payday. And we'll still have enough to loan a friend to help him with his legal issue and a loan to MIL to pay her bills... I may need to take summer classes after all. Or food moneys and bills will be tight or staggered... This sux.
The rumor mill where I work is worse than being back in high school. Get frustrated with something someone does and you hate them... in this case it gets better. I don't hate her because of the frustrating incident the other day, its because when I switched jobs she got mine and people say she's good at it so somehow this makes me feel bad about myself and hate her because I apparently did a bad job...? I dunno. She and I both heard about this from our boss who heard it from the rumor mill. Geez grow up people. So I went to talk to her, we both are frustrated because there is contradiction on what is priority and what is not, because I don't always check my phone when I get back from places and she doesn't email, because we both get other peoples jobs pushed off onto us when they don't do it themselves. We are both aware the other person does not hate them and if there is a big problem, they'll know. I figured if it goes rumor to boss to individuals, i'mma cut the crap and straighten it out directly.
