February 7, 2011 -Better-

I’m feeling better!  Woohoo! 

So here is where we went Saturday:

Isn’t it beautiful!  We took a ride to Calistoga.  This is one of the wineries.  We took our DD as she is a princess!  We had a blast!  We got to tour the castle and see all of the different rooms.  Our DD had a wonderful time, only bored during the wine tasting which didn’t take too long.  Even then, she got chocolate and grape juice!  I took a ton of pictures, but this one is a nice shot of the outside of the castle.  We then took a ride a bit farther north, and then turned around and went in a totally different direction.  It was a fun long day and we all had a great time.

Ruh got some work done on him today.  He’s looking good, even if it is all black background right now.

M is bugging the crap out of me at work… my goodness she needs to retire or something.

Hope you all have a great week!!!


February 2, 2011 Sickly

I’m sick…. and at work…. this sucks.

Been here so far all day, wanting to not be here at all.  I got 175 emails while out 2 days.  I have 6 left that I am working on, but since the Mid to Eastern part of the USA is snowed in and not working, I won’t be able to do squat on those today anyways.  Why am I still here?  Well…  My wonderful co-worker M has a dentist appointment.  She left for the day already and that would leave K here all by herself for the remainder of the day.  I have an issue with this.  First – M told me this morning when I walked in that she didn’t expect to see me in this week at all.  Second – M’s dentist appointment is a cleaning, one that could have been re-scheduled.  Third – Even though she wasn’t expecting me today, she did not change her appointment, so K would have been all alone for the majority of the day.  Fourth – M is a bitch. 

It isn’t all that busy in here, but if you knew that you had an appointment and figured your co-worker was going to be out sick, leaving the other one alone for the majority of the day, would you cancel and reschedule your appointment?  I would have, but maybe that is because I actually give a crap.  I will probably leave early, I’m thinking about 2:30ish, so that K will be able to take a lunch and will then only be here for 2 hours by herself.  But if I make it that long, can’t I make it until 4:30??  I know I feel horrid, and probably look just as bad, but until she tells me to go home, I’m not moving.  Plus, my hubby would have to come and get me anyways (he’s at his moms working today), so that would be at least 20 minutes of working after she told me to leave.

Right now, I just want to sleep… is that so bad?

January 28, 2011

Okay, I’m back.  So for the stitchy news:  You saw Ruh, he is coming along nicely.  There is just so much black!  I do like how the other colors pop out though and once I get more done, it will continue to look better because I am doing all of the background (black). 

I haven’t worked on him at home for a while and I think I need to change that.  He is going to take me a long time anyways, and I really don’t want to make it even longer.  If I could just get a schedule down at home for which nights to do what during the week and then on the weekends do such and such it would be great.  However, I have not done that yet…

So this weekend is our DD’s 11th birthday party.  She didn’t want it after her birthday, so a few days before is fine.  Plus next weekend is Superbowl sunday, and that never goes over well for kid’s birthday parties.  She is very excited as her bff gets to finally meet her cousin.  I’m sure fun will be had by all.

Work was quite interesting today.  I had to go to a meeting with M and one other person.  First off, she left without me and when I got to the conference room she acted like I wasn’t supposed to be there.  It was an interesting hour and 45 minutes…  Jeesh I dislike meetings, and then top it off with M, bleh.  Other than that, it went fine.  No bad things really happened other than when I first walked in.

That’s it for today my pretties.  Have a great weekend and have a cupcake to celebrate our DD’s b-day!


January 28, 2011 RUH RUH

  I will come back in a bit and give a stitchy update.  But for right now, this is how Ruh looks as of today after stitching on him at lunchtime.

January 28, 2011 – Why does it bother me?

I know that I shouldn’t let her get to me but she does.  And sometimes, I think she knows it.  So today, I have decided to push past all of the negative crap she sends out and be a happy person.  I mean, it is Friday. 

Today so far at work hasn’t been bad.  There are times when I enjoy her being pissed off at me, because then she doesn’t talk to me… kind of breaks up the day ya know?   But today I think she is just upset because I’m not upset. 

Have you ever tried not to let someone get to you, no matter what they say or do?  It’s not an easy task, at all!  However, I have noticed that if you put a smile on your face it helps, and she seems to be bothered by it as well.  Which doesn’t make for such a bad thing. 

I have numerous examples of what she has said or done, and not just to me, but in general.  And of course she never acts like that around our boss, because that would be horrid.  So when I have said something to him in the past, he is amazed that she acted like that.  Of course now, I think he knows what she is like, he has heard it from too many people.

So today, I put on a happy face and she can go suck on a tailpipe.  It doesn’t bother me that she is upset because I am happy today, in fact, I think it’s pretty damn funny. 

More later, but hopefully updates and such.  Oh and our DD’s b-day party is this weekend too!


January 27, 2011 Bitchfest

So today and yesterday have been interesting at work…  I was on vacation on Monday and Tuesday my DD was sick and stayed home from school.  My hubby already had plans to work at his moms, so I stayed home.  I arrived yesterday morning to M giving me, (or trying to give me), a guilt trip because she didn’t know I was going to be out Monday.  I had told her awhile ago, and sent the email showing it was approved by our boss.  It is also on our shared email calendar and on a huge calendar on the wall.  Please keep in mind that I also send out a “while I’m out” email to M & K and my boss before I leave the day before vacation.  Just to let them know what is going on in my areas.  So apparently I was supposed to feel bad… I don’t.  K comes in and she barely says boo to me, but is all buddy buddy with M.  Well this is new.  Hmm.  So yesterday, neither one of them spoke to me much at all.  Seemed a bit odd.  Neither asked about my DD either.  W/E.

Today I get in and say good morning, (M arrives early and is here when I get here).  She says nada.  K walks in a little later and says morning.  I say it back.  Pretty much a normal day so far.  Then I get that feeling like something is going on, and they both start laughing.  What’s so funny?  No clue.  Guess they were emailing back and forth to each other.  Thats new too.  (At least that I know of). 

M has this, hmm how do I put it, annoying way to try to prove that she knows more and is so much better than both K and I.  What she doesn’t seem to see is that it makes her look like an idiot.  We are both going into a meeting tomorrow, she doesn’t understand why I was invited…  do I still go?  You bet your butt I am.  Even though she doesn’t think that I should be in there and probably doesn’t think that I know anything about it.  Funny, cause I know quite a bit about it, probably why I was invited and have already been to some about the same exact thing.

I don’t understand why it is bothering me so much lately, but it really is.  I don’t want to bother my boss about it either.  I can say something to her, but she will just say that wasn’t what she was doing and then I will get payback.  She does that all of the time.  You call her on something and at some point she will get you back for it.  What I don’t understand is that when she does shit like that, it makes her look like she doesn’t know what the hell she is doing.  She makes so many mistakes, it is ridiculous.  You would think that she would get called out on them by our boss… maybe she does.  She never comes back from her reviews in a good mood.

That’s it for now.  I will probably get on here later today or tomorrow for an updated pic of Ruh.  He’s coming along slowly… a ton of black going on right now.


Oh and btw, my DD is feeling much better and went to school the next day.

January 17, 2011

There he is as of December 31st, 2010.  There is more done to him now, but I haven’t taken a picture yet.  I was just glad to finish the first page before the end of the year. 

I know I haven’t been out here lately, but it’s been a little busy at work since the beginning of the year and I have yet to do anything on this blog from home.  I just keep finding other things to do ya know?

So our DD is turning 11 soon!  Wow, time flies by so quickly.  I can not believe that she is almost 11.  It is just amazing how fast she has grown up.  She got to stay home today from school as it is MLK day.  She and my hubby are playing WoW, but not together…  She is doing good in school, although she did get in trouble recently for talking in class too much.  We took her computer/games away from her for 4 days.  She was not happy about that at all, but hopefully it won’t happen again.  I wouldn’t be surprised if it did, seeing as she is a social butterfly.  But maybe she will learn to get it under control.

We have all been playing WoW quite a bit, my DD and I have been leveling together.  She enjoys the game, and I am having fun teaching her the ins and outs of it.  Hubby of course answers anything that I can not, or am not sure about.  He’s the man when it comes to the game.  I am trying to learn as much as I can on it, but sometimes the reading on it can become quite boring…

Tax season is coming… bleh.  I have no idea what to expect.  Hubby’s unemployment has run out, so we now don’t have that extra income.  Hopefully we can survive, please keep up in your thoughts.  I’m tired of living where we live but we don’t have a lot of options on what to do about it.  I have so many rambling thoughts on it, it is insane.

My other cross stitches have been put to the wayside for now.  I haven’t stitched much at home lately, but I should try to get at least 5 hours a week at home on Ruh.  That would knock out more in a shorter amount of time.  My goal on him for 2011 is to have 4 pages complete.  I am really hoping I can get more than that done, but I really have no idea, so I will just stick with this for now.  Even at that rate, it will be 14 years before I complete him… that is way too long!

Okay, hope everyone who had today off of work had a great day.  And to those of us who had to work, I hope it was an easy day.
