Gray and gloomy here today, but supposedly the sun is going to show up later today. Since this is Washington State I am not holding my breath! At least there's no ice!
I have to do payroll today, and then tackle a bunch of loose ends all over my desk. I am not inspired. My boss is gone for part of the day, another normal guy called in sick, and there are really only two other people here in the office (downstairs). I feel like I could be SO much more productive somewhere else!!
Need to change my thinking... :)

No spring here. I live near the river and it was merely chilly and damp when I got in the car this morning. Not even any frost or condensatioin on the car windows. As I climbed the hill to the highway I noticed traffic (stupidly, I thought) slowing down considerably because of a light dusting of snow. Ha! A light dusting over a thin veneer of pure ice. Got to work late, but in one piece and saw numerous busted taillights and headlights on pulled-over vehicles. Ick.
Not in the best mood today, but fighting it. You know what the old email story says, you always have two choices....

It is cold again here. Andrew is off school, so we are all going to the old arcade in Montreal. Play video games, bowling, and greasy burgers. As soon as James wakes up, we are off! Andrew is so excited I never spends money on this kind of stuff, but I took out $100 to just waste today.
It's starting to look like spring outside. Sunny, clear, blue sky, high in the upper 40s... Actually, that's still about 10 degrees below normal for around here, but it sounds about right anyway. What do I know.
I'll spend all morning at the library, then come home and do the readings for my class tonight, then go to class. If I get time in between, I'll work on transcribing the interview I did last week. I'm really slow at it, and I have a lot to do. And that's just for the first draft, which needs a lot of clean up. So I guess that pretty much takes up the day.
Have a great day everyone! For some reason, I feel like today is Monday and the first of the month - in a good way. Like things are starting over today. It's a good feeling.
