Heave Ho!!

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Yep..it was a heave ho kind of day. Last week at work the fire dept did a random insp of our work area. Low and behold...we flailed! emoticon Most of us didn't have the required 36" of egress (space to get the he!! out in case of fire) to get of our cubes/area. Now don't think we don't have the room...we do..just NOT 36" of room. So we're on a massive clean up and moving spree today. Well...when I say "we" I mean a few of us. Me, my manager (when he could), and one other guy emoticon . So I have heaved and hoed, pushed and pulled, cleaned and scrubbed most of today. I do believe I had my cardio in even before I hit the gym! And I had almost 10K steps before lunch! emoticon We got rid of some E waste, threw bunches of stuff out and moved large steel cabinets. I even had to rearrange MY own cube to get 36", because you know...I only had like 32". Believe me..if there's a fire...I WILL get out! Even if it means throwing a slot machine though the window and jumping from the second story. There's some trees that I can land in. emoticon

On the home front..hubby goes back to work on Monday! emoticon I Love the man beyond measure, but once he's back to work I won't come home at night to dirty dishes in the sink! emoticon This afternoon he has PT (he should be there now), and he's been dealing with the insurance people on the theft stuff from last year. We want to close all that out but they haven't paid us for everything. And it's not the insurance company really, but company they farm the adjustor part too. It;s just a huge pain in the butt! emoticon

You might have heard that the gov settled with BoA on the home mortgage thing class action suit. We didn't get foreclosed on but BoA did screw up our mortgage pretty badly. Our loan servicing isn't with them any longer, but we did get a letter a few weeks ago saying we were due a part of the settlement. We just kind looked at each other and went OK..what like $50? But last week a check for $300 showed up from the class action suit. emoticon But WAIT! Let's not be emoticoning so fast! I read in the paper (as I was standing in Starbucks, waiting for my drink) that some of those checks are BOUNCING! Say WHAT? It seems that BoA settled and checks were issued but they didn't fund the settlement. emoticon So we have this $300 check we don't if it's any good or not. We'll be taking it to a BoA to cash and see what happens. Maybe the "too big fail" banks need to fail! If I wrote a bun check not only would I have to pay all kinds of fees but I might have to go to jail. emoticon

Eating last night didn't go as planned. I walked in the door and hubby said..lets do KFC! He was craving for some KFC. So I said OK. We tried a mix of the new boneless (not the best that KFC has to offer) and original, with some mashed taters and gravy for hubby, and potato wedges for me. Plus biscuits. Hubby didn't have biscuits but I had two. I don't get to have them very often. So over all I was OVER calories for yesterday. As to the new KFC boneless...they had way too much breading on them, and some of the breading was doughy. We won't be getting the Boneless again. emoticon

Tonight were having pork steaks, hashbrowns, and peas. What I going to make last night. Eating was a bit tricky today, with all the heaving and ho'ing, but I did get it in. Plus I even did my workout at lunch. I figure I can count doing two workouts today. emoticon

So that's it for today. Today's funny is for any of us that have done planks (I have and I can say that I HATE those suckers! emoticon ).
