Today was supposed to start my vacation. I say “supposed to” because I worked over 8.5 hours from home. And I still have a little more to do tomorrow. Stupid video that won’t upload properly….
I found out tonight some pretty upsetting work-related news. I don’t want to go into it on here because I’m afraid that someone involved will read this eventually, but know that I’m pretty upset about it. In work terms, this almost rivals the Thanksgiving that Tom called me to tell me he was moving to Ohio and I lost the greatest. boss. ever. (Tom, I’m still not over that.)
In other goings-on…..we got our leaky pipe fixed today. The plumber was super-great, once he finally showed up. We also have a leaky faucet, but the warranty doesn’t cover faucets, so I’m going to get a lesson in Plumbing 101 sometime soon. I think I can figure out how to fix it.
Our shower that was oh-so-gross when we moved in is still not perfect, so I poured a bottle of bleach in the bottom (with the drain covered, so the bleach wouldn’t drain out quickly) and waited for over an hour for it to sit. We were hoping that would help. The shower *should* be cream with blue specks. Almost white with blue specks. It was fairly brown and now has some tan mixed in with it. It’s usable, but I’d really love to see the white with blue specks 🙂 The house no longer smells like bleach, and I now have to figure out another method to clean it.
I have mixed feelings about the holidays this year, in case you haven’t figured that out from my blog. One minute I’m happy, the next I’m upset, the next I’m indifferent. Today started off so great, and it ended in such a depressing state. I hope it turns around tomorrow.
I meet with someone tomorrow about mentoring for Team in Training again. I’ll finally get my butt running. I won’t have any excuse to NOT run! I did run 2 miles this morning and I thought I would die. Could be the sickness I have going on that causes those feelings….
I think I’m going to head to bed. Hope your week is going better than mine is turning out to be.
