The boss was gone and I kinda liked it!
To clarify, the old boss was out (he ran a 31-mile race this weekend!). Since he was out, I covered at one of the calls with a subcontractor. And I did pretty good! I knew the answers to their questions, what our plans were and when we expect... Read more
Blink, and it's gone!
The weekend, that is. Dang! So...let me give you a run down.
Saturday - Get up at 6:00 and go to the gym. Come home, shower, eat breakfast and take the dogs (two of them) to get their shots. Get there by 8:45. Wait for the place to ope... Read more
I am too exhausted to blog tonight. Up and running since 6:00 this morning and I still have a load of laundry in the dryer. Going to go eat a piece of toast, read a couple of minutes and then go to bed so I can start all over again tomorrow. ... Read more

Is it finally going to happen?
Word on the street is that "The BIG Announcement" about my area's re-org will be tomorrow. I'm excited, nervous and a little cynical. Part of me does not believe that the announcement will come. The sad thing is...we have a pool going (no $$ ... Read more
Nutritional Boot Camp
My company is offering a class titled "Nutritional Boot Camp" for free during lunch for the next four weeks. I have to give up my read-on-the-patio-and-soak-up-

Conference calls are not for the faint (feint?) of heart!
Every week day morning, I get a page to remind me of all of my meetings that day. Rarely is there a day that I don't get a page. This morning, I get a page that has a phone number, an access code, the title "2nd Day" and a time of 8:00 - 9:30.... Read more
Update on Grandma
Went to visit today and the tube is out! Yay! They took it out yesterday. Her throat is still very sore and she isn't passing the "drinking" test so she can't have anything to drink. She was very out of it and didn't realize that she had had... Read more
Bonus! I'm off tomorrow too!
This has been a really nice weekend. I spent way too much time outside yesterday watching my son play football (and waiting to watch him play) and have a slight sunburn on my nose and shoulders. Can you say sunscreen? Or, in my case, lack the... Read more

I've mentioned before that my area at work is going through a re-org. One of the guys is moving on to another position and needs to hand down some of his projects. One in particular is fairly involved and complicated. Every department is invo... Read more
Lots of things, some little, some not so...
1. My grandma is in the hospital. She had surgery on an abdominal aortal aneurysm. She's known about it for years but just assumed it would burst one day and kill her instantly (sorry if that sounds harsh, her words). Instead, it started lea... Read more
