Yup, Faith, you decoded correctly! LOL I think Heidi's got different workplace issues than I have... :)

So I think I just figured out what SH means...does the H stand for hole?

Gail, you deserve the day off! Don't answer that dang phone... :)

Connie, I freak out over anything that resembles a car problem! If you can find a shop you trust, go with it. You need to have confidence in your vehicle and in the people who work on it.

Hot day here. I'm not working in a S H like Heidi, but it's a two story metal building and I'm on the second floor. The rest of the building is full of milling and drying equipment and tons of seed dust... Eeep.

I'm thinking about leaving early and working on some writing projects at home. I need to convert an employee bonus contract (seriously?? No US employers in their right minds would write a lopsided contract to pay bonuses!! I'm working on conveying the concept and meaning of the word 'discretionary' to the Danish home office.) into a memo to employees who may be eligible. It is an ongoing challenge to remind the home office managers that this is an American company with American employees and American values and that their European Union methods, systems, and requirements are a bad fit here.

End of rant.

It's supposed to hit the low 90s today and set a temp record. Lovely. I'd better work slowly to conserve my energy...

you guys seem particularly funny today. emoticon

my dh left this morning for las vegas...again! he's been to vegas 2x since i went with him last november. i haven't had a holiday since then. so i told him he could go, but, that he had to organize the company as if i was going too. i shouldn't have to leave home to have a holiday myself.
oh, and last time...i got sick--really sick-- and i had to deal with the business. so, i feel i deserve a freakin' holiday too....

anyhoo, this morning--first day...he has misscheduled someone and i am a driver short. and it probably seems like cutting you nose off to spite your face, but, i am not going out there. i have just been geared to have this day off. all i wanted to do was sleep, read and hang with the animals. it's terrifically hot outside (supposed to get to 32 or more) and i am getting called from dispatch to drive....no, no, no...i am not leaving my house today!! already, the phone is ringing, there's a scheduling screw up...ay, ay, ay.....that man is going to get a text message!!! emoticon

so, thank you for having this daily post. it felt so good to know i could check in and have a wee rant. you guys are so terrific.

Heidi, the eggplant & zucchini dish sounds warm & awesome. I was at a party that had slices of eggplant marinated in Italian dressing then wrapped around a plug of feta cheese. It was enticing, flavorable & easy. I'll be taking that dish to other parties. Yummmm!

Will the cruise season ever end? 3 big ships in today and totally crappy weather- typical SE- rain, wind and dark, not especially cold yet. Poor tourists. I however am snuggly ensconced at the S H where it is dry. Seriously looking forward to going home this afternoon.

Today will be a better day- starting out with an eggplant & zucchini lasagna for breakfast. Brought a couple leftover cabbage rolls (which were quite good btw) for lunch and a snack.

Come on 4:00 pm!

1. Stop wasting money- Save money

2. Exercise- do something every day

3. Get organized- mise en place

4. Write a letter by hand at least once a week.

Every day this side of the sod is a good day-
not sure who said it

My animals make me happy, some people not so much- a bumper sticker

Connie _ I enjoyed your post!!!!!
Engine light-you never know what it might be...there are now a zillion codes! Grrrr Sometimes it relates to a standard check at a certain mileage-a reminder so to speak BUT it is TOO vague!
Big deal or little deal- it's a car shop racket!!!!
I liked your response about the garlic bread...Having it arrive in my house would have given me an obstacle!. Maybe your guest was trying to bring something that would give you pleasure too and didn't know how to react to your response. Actually him doing what you suggested would have helped me immensely

HONDABLONDE,
I know what you mean a few years ago I lost my job and had a bout with depression. I just wanted to lay in bed and do nothing. The more I layed in bed the worse it got.

Fortunately my wife kicked me out of bed and forced me to get up and do things. I didn't like that, but doing things was the best therapy.

Subject: engine check light
FINALEE,
Not a low carb topic, but I too had my engine light on, and an expensive charge just to read the code.

They told me the sensor at the gas cap was defective and that it should be replaced, for a few hundred more. I did some Internet research and found that it can be the ethanol, up to 10% where I am, added to fuel that causes the false reading. I now fill up with slightly more expensive mid grade fuel, up to 5% ethanol, and the engine check light went out after a while and didn't come back on in months now.

Ah, I have a day off. Sort of. I need to read a technical report for a meeting tomorrow (which was supposed to be another day off, but not gonna happen). Still can't sleep in (06:00 wake up this morning), I'll probably nap later.

Tipping it down today over here -- autumn has arrived, I suppose.

Been eating (gnawing) some chicken wings today - 3 at lunch and 2 just now for snack. Roast chicken for dinner. Lots of fowl today. Even had an egg for breakfast!

Ebay packing is done and already at the post office (not quite 4 pm here), so going to tackle some of the paperwork.

Making myself get up earlier. Seems when I lie in till 8 or 9 a.m. I feel more down, as if lying in bed lets the depression take over. Getting up at 7 today was much better.

Happy Humpday! :)

Good Morning All! I made awesome salads for lunch & dinner yesterday. I also finally found spaghetti squash. Seriously, $1.49#???? No classes today. I'll clean. I'm making a veggie sauce for my spaghetti squash for dinner. Great cheese to put on top & a glass of red wine. YUM. My guest asked if I mind if he brings garlic bread. I suggested he bring an amount that he wants. I'd prefer not to have the taste of the dinner polluted with processed food. He was quiet & said he'd think about it. What should I have said????

Car challenges. Check engine light on. I got some input from repair shops . . . seriously $100 for just the diagnostics? I'm thinking . . . I don't do cars well! My aura just can't figure out what to do besides, gas, oil, radiator fluid, windshield fluid . . . I'm over whelmed.

Enjoy your day! We got to show up to do IT all over again . . . YIPPEE! Connie
