Had a nice day at work, no staff meeting which was great. Our GM and SM were out of the building at a meeting and must have forgot to ask one of the Dept Heads to run the meeting. So no one volunteered and everyone disappeared back to their depts. Usually I get the honors to run the staff meeting when this happens, but with everyone bailing I didn't push the issue. I think the store will survive.
Home and we went to get the handheld radio Jim had been eyeballing at the Radio Shop. I think he is pretty set up with equipment now. We have to have some time and nice weather to work on getting the antennas up. Had dinner at the Wendy's by the shop, was very good, a small chili and Jr cheeseburger. Well within my guidelines for the entire day. Dumb move at Wendy's- managed to spill my entire cup of diet coke all over the carpet while squeezing the sour cream (reduced fat of course) into my chili. Felt like an idiot.
Home and a quick power walk. Took Maggie so she had some quality time with us, but we think the walks are just getting too long and too much for her. (She is coming up on 10 years old) She was slowing down and missing a step here and there. It was humid too, and had some drizzle of rain off and on while we were at the Radio shop. Jim had wanted to cut the lawn when he got home from work, but it was too damp from the rain we had off and on today.
Went to another HAM radio club meeting for a different club tonight. We thought it started at 7:30 pm, at least that was on the website. But it started at 7pm so we walked into the middle of the meeting. Snuck in very quietly and sat in the back. Introduced ourselves after and asked about the club and stuff like that. This club does more volunteerism at events than the other club meeting attended last week. Will be up to Jim what direction he wants to go with his HAM radio interest at this point.
Overall a very nice day. Mr Pouty Pants was okay after he got over his pity party.
