Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Oh my goodness it feels sooo good to have SLEPT !!!! Unfortunately; I had to work the full shift last night .. Kathy sent Al home.. Usually when I work with Kathy; Al takes over after the JC's game and we get to go home .. I was excited because the JC's were playing at 6:00 game .. I would be out of there by 7 ... Nope .. Kathy wanted to save Al staying for next week when she has to work with Marilyn .. I told her that Marilyn has actually been good with me (but I don't let her get away with what Kathy does .. I tell her to get up and do this or do that) ... but none the less I didn't get home until 10:00 and then after I set up my coffee for this morning, and I got upstairs and into bed .. it was almost 11 .. Between the decrease of stress now that my server is working again, fresh air, lack of sleep over the last few days ... My head hit the pillow and as soon as I got myself wound down .. :)
I got to work and there was no further information regarding the server ETA .. I called Hardware Jim, to find out; and he said they sent HIM an email; stating that the ETA was sometime before 1:00 pm .. (4 hour service ?? 1:30 Tuesday to 1:00 Wednesday?? Hmmm) Anywho ... Jim sent me the email .. I told him my phone never left my side, and if they were in the area at 8, 9 or 10 .. I could have gotten back to work in 15 minutes .. but I never got any phone call ..
About an hour later HW Jim calls and said that they sent another email that they are coming at 11:00 .. (ok .. getting better) .. and then finally Randy called Jim, and Jim told him to contact ME at my cell number .. and then FINALLY the connection was made .. I talked with Randy, and he was on his way from Madison area (about an hour away) ..
All this time Linda was coming up with ideas to help the guys with their pricing problems ... I told Jimmy .. if something gets mispriced; I'm not going to lose sleep over it .. but they have access information to our supplier websites .. Linda decided to set up the counter computer; to 2 of our main sites we work with .. I was very happy that she took the bull by the horns, and came up with a temporary solution .. That made me feel good !!!
When Randy finally got there, he was a very nice man .. Darn .. he's beating me into retirement by 2 weeks .. lol .. but he began the open heart surgery, and I was very surprised that the inside wasn't more dust inside, but when he took out parts that needed blowing out .. I brought out my trusty paint brush, took them outside, and watched them go "poof" .. lol lol ...
He closed her up; and put a CD in the rom, and nothing .. Rohroh !!! He had to open her up again .. he said that it appears as if the CD Rom has never been connected ... and I told him that could be .. because Heidi had a problem with installing our software update .. but he reconnected the CD Rom after opening her up again .. and the SWOOOOOOSH sound when he pushed the button was like HEAVEN !!!!!! I took a deep sigh of relief .. :)
While he was packing up .. he had told me earlier that the data was not affected .. well -- I wanted to make sure, so started up a couple of the computers with Sage .. and it worked !!!!
By that time Kim had come in, and between Linda, working on her stuff, Kim taking care of majority of the "basket" ... and me taking the paperwork that needed pricing .. Paperwork was flying EVERYWHERE !!!! but we got it all caught up .. :) At the same time Ben was working on the purchasing side of it .. I was actually very proud of how "my" staff jumped up to the plate ..
After Randy left, I decided to get out and stretch my legs, and just take some deep breaths .. I went to a Payless shoe store, but parked at the end of the lot .. so I got extra steps ... I think I'm going to have to get creative to find some "beige" string shoelaces .. and do a die job ..from white .. lollol.... They have pink, and neon green, but they don't have beige .. lol lol ..
I was seriously hungry .. so I stopped at Panda's and had a plate ... and enjoyed every bite .. but I made the decision (usually I stop and get something before working the dugout) to bypass dinner.. and I enjoyed my lunch; and broke my "habit" of stopping for food, whether or not I'm hungry ..it's habit ... before the dugout .. and you know what .. ?? I was FINE until I got home at 10:00 when I had myself a bananananananaa ...
All these things I'm learning about myself .. 60 years young and I'm STILL learning .. Learning things about my body, that I never knew .. I didn't know that you could actually NOT have THREE full meals a day .. I have learned that it's not necessary to have a big dessert to kill off sugar cravings .. many times 1 M&M, or 1 jelly bean or even a slice of toast with jelly can cure that problem .. Many times when my belly is telling my brain I'm hungry .. it's just confused because it's dehydrated, and only thirsty .. water suffices .. I have learned that when I get hungry .. just sucking on a piece of peppermint candy or any hard candy; will be all my belly needs to send to my brain .. "okay -- I'm good" .. at 60 years young .. I'm LEARNING!!!!!
I'm LEARNING about myself !!! Things I've probably known, but have been socked away in the back of the closets of my brain ..
Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday .. Friday to a 3 day weekend .. I told mom the other day when she called, that I would be over on Sunday, and I had to giggle to myself .. while the tone in her voice was up to begin with, it immediately got more happy when I told her I would be over on Sunday .. Hubby and I have Saturday and Monday to spend together ..
Okay --- gotta get myself going here .. so wishing you a wonderful day .. :) Happy FRIDAY EVE to all !!!!!!
