I CAN Be a Glass Half Full Kind of Dweeb
Another week being served up, all fresh and hopeful. I think at heart I am an optimist, but sometimes it takes a little extra work to build that frame for my thoughts, you know? But let me try...
- I had a really good weekend. Saturday was a very solitary day for me, but that is not such a bad thing. I like a bit of alone time, as long as it has an end to it. I slept in later on Sunday than I have in I don't know how long. I suppose I needed it. It was a really pretty day and we all hung out at the park for the afternoon, which felt great. I did have some trouble with a timely shut down that night though. Oh, that wretched extra sleep :-) Weekend bonus, I am starting to get a bit better at Literati, which is how DR and I amuse ourselves on those long weekend nights. But he still cleans up virtually ALL the time. Way too clever.
- For those who didn't suss it out in my comments, allow me to announce that the Drifter is no longer in the employ of the city. She called and gave her two weeks notice Friday morning. Those two weeks will be run out on administrative leave. I am not sure how to adequately convery my relief and deep satisfaction. I've never worked with anyone in all my born years who bothered me as much as this woman did. One of my best friends suggested a purification ritual for her desk area, so as not to attract the same type again. Seemed brilliant to me and I am currently gathering the necessary supplies. Of course, that position will remain vacant, we anticipate, for several months. Hiring freeze and all that. But being down a 40 hour position trumps working with Miss Nutjob, so I still feel like a winner.
- Dancing with the Stars begins again tonight. You all know what that means. Yes, I'm sorry, but I am compelled to chronicle it for you in the sidebar. Okay, maybe not for you...but for me. It is the most cheesiest and injury riddled fun that I know of. Bear with me, because you like me in spite of this minor fixation. Also in the sidebar, you will note that DR will be here in a mere month. I really, really can't wait. Yet I am :-) But not for so very much longer, really. Yay!
So how are you all doing? Feeling optimistic? Not so much? Tell me about it. Let's share our feelings, shall we? Come on. Its fun. Wait, come back! ...
