Had a long, full day... I joined a womens' investment club that is just starting and went to my first meeting tonight, so I blasted home from work (left a few minutes early!) and took the boys for a fast, power walk in the woods. That was probably good for all of us! I had time before the meeting (which is happily about five minutes away with another 10 minutes needed to find parking) to make my lunch, cook most of my dinner, and get a little ready for work tomorrow.

Now I'm on the sofa with my feet up catching up with you guys but thinking that I should also fold the laundry and put it away while watching NCIS... :)

Woubbie, I tend to think that odious people cannot effectively hide their disgustingness around skilled HR people, so there was probably someone on the other end of Ms O's phone call rolling his or her eyes! I'm betting on our warrior in this case... Too easy! But probably not much fun for you to endure.

What a day. But not as busy as some of you. Guilt of not working insane hours, but I have a family and they come first. And for a change - me. Exercise doesn't get skipped!

Son has karate and then the night time insanity starts. Extracurricular is hard to do!

Woubbie good luck with your son. It does sound frustrating!

Weigh in tomorrow for me. I'm anxious

emoticon our warrior will not snap. love it!

having a frustrating get nothing done day. yesterday they hooked up optik tv and internet. it's all controlled by a router. somehow this switch has made my wireless printer not work. it has a router to be wireless. i don't know if it's cuz there's 2 routers and i need to get the printer on the new router or if it is switching internet providers.
anyway, i can't find the cord to plug the printer in and i am going mad. might have to go to the store and buy another one. i already have 2, so i don't really want to do that.
and i have a stack of stuff to print as well as cheques to print...........i hate when computer issues take hours of my time. so frustrating.
and not impressed with this so called high speed internet. it's no faster than what i had and have had the net freeze on me once already, which it does regularly with the other provider. but, the package is half the price of what it all cost before, so, i'll adjust.

And no, haven't heard back from the music school yet about his acceptance. As if I need anything else nerve-wracking going on! That's just one more reason that my nerves are stretched like an overtuned string on a guitar. Hope I don't actually snap!

If you look up "odious" in the dictionary you will see her frowzy, pinched face next to the definition.

I don't think her complaint will go anywhere, as I went to my Senior Manager before I left on Friday explaining the entire exchange, and blind copied him on the reply to her toxic email, neither of which she knows, obviously. I also voluntarily requested a location change to avoid any future frictions, which, unfortunately, he has so far denied. She, on the other hand, has stepped outside the chain of command, which does her discredit.

Anyway. It's been CYA ever since that fateful moment when I almost had a stroke over her odious behavior. (Yup. Getting some mileage out of that word today.) Would have liked to have had a reading on my blood pressure...

Yikes! Snow storm?!?! Hope it all melts by next week - my son is coming your way for a visit to Montreal and Quebec City next week! He can't wait! He went on the trip 2 years ago and really loved it, especially Quebec City.

Have a bit of a backlog at work today, so I'm really cooking along for the most part. It's gonna go by quick!

It turns out that I forgot about an appointment I had made for this evening, so my day just got even choppier!

My younger son finally had his first therapy appointment yesterday and it went really well I think. They're FINALLY going to test him (for ADHD, autism spectrum, anxiety, etc), which will be a real relief. He is very well behaved and well socialized, so when therapists have seen him in the past they're like "So what's the problem???" and start talking about vo-tech and how to set up his desk and his binders... Always leaves me scratching my head and then walking away fuming. I just hope, for ALL our sakes, that someone can help him out. His anxiety attacks (or whatever they are) are escalating and are also becoming more public, which strikes me as setting him up for a vicious cycle of behavior. Wish us luck! He'll be seeing someone every week for at least a couple of months.

Uh oh. Just overheard the odious woman from Friday's incident on the phone with HR. This could get interesting.... Gotta go!

Big snow storm in Quebec, so no school for drew. I was going to take him sledding, but we only have one sled! I am in in the snow grilling my burgers.
We rented a house in wildwood for a week this summer with two other families. It is a charcoal grill, hope I can use it!

It's a bright sunny day today, but cold. "Normal" for this time of year is about 53. High today is supposed to be in the low 30s. But it is beautiful out! My crocuses (crocusi?) are in bloom, and my daffodils are really close. I need some warm weather on a day that I can get out and get stuff done in the yard and garden.

I almost said not much planned for today, but I guess it will pretty much fill the available time. I'll spend the morning at the library, then try to get some funds transferred so I can open a bank account so I can get a Medallion Signature Guarentee so I can transfer an investment account of my aunt's into my name so I can distribute it. They sure like to make life difficult! Then home to do my readings for class tonight, then to school for my class. And home again about 9:00 tonight. I guess that qualifies as a busy day!
