Tuesday Tales 2/12/08

Weather
2:30am, I hear the first snowplow go by. Yikes… Already? 5:30am, I get up with the intention of either snow blowing or shoveling. After all, we were in a band of weather that was supposed to produce 6” of snow last night. Pleasantly surprised, I walk out to find less than an inch. I thought to myself: Self, that one inch is going to stay there.


Work
Let me ask this: Are staff meetings *really* necessary? In order to make the 8:30am staff meeting, I have to leave my house at 7:30. Today enroute, I witnessed three accidents: 2 cars in the ditch and one pick up truck rollover… all because of slick roadways. I arrive at the staff meeting a few minutes late to find that they started early (This is *after* I called ahead and said I might be late). I sat through 20 minutes of jibber-jabber, none of which applied to my office. Then I drove another 45 minutes to get back to my office. One of the staff commented about quick I was back, and after telling her the above, she asks: Were you pissed? LOL (Not a happy camper, that’s for sure)


Make My Day
I dare you, punk! Make my day!!! It’s always nice when someone compliments you, isn’t it? It must be my turn. Twice in the past week, people have told me they thought I didn’t look a day over 30. Imagine that! Today after the staff meeting, one of my colleagues commented that she thought I’d lost weight. Must be noticeable! Lastly, I received an award from Chiloe and Kathryn. Apparently, I make her day with my bloggy musings! I need to spread the wealth onto 10 others, so the following bloggers have made my day at one time or another: Julie R, Lisa S, Michelle, Mercy, Rene, Velda, Deirdre, Petra, Patty S, and Nancy M. Thanks for making my day! :)
