I got my run in very early yesterday then walked the dogs and got right to work. I have a project that was due on the first of April and I had given myself plenty of time to complete it and I was all ready to dive in and then that thing that always happens happened.
The client decided that she needed to move the date up two weeks and then another client decided that a module that they previously didn’t need on their site they now need, yesterday.
And if all that wasn’t enough to stress me out and give me minor heart palpitations, MacGyver was home yesterday and he wanted me to do quotes for him. Oh, and did I mention that he was in the garage working on his motorcycle so he kept leaving his phone in the house which means his business line then rings over to my phone, so yeah, I was also answering calls for him yesterday and dealing with his clients.
Sometime around 3 in the afternoon the phones died down and I was finally able to start to get my work started and then someone rang the damn doorbell. So MacGyver looks over at me from where he’s laying comfortably on the sofa and asks if I’d go answer the door.
He re-thought that and then got up and answered it himself which was a good thing because I think I would have felt really shitty if I’d have yelled at the Girl Scout and her dad selling cookies from her little red wagon.
I never got any work done yesterday. None.
So, that’s what I’m doing today and that’s why this is a short post. I didn’t want to leave you without quality content though so I ask Boomer and Hank to contribute something. Boomer was more than willing to contribute and offered up a couple of pictures.
Hank, not so much. Y’all know he needs more motivation. I had to hold him and coddle him until he fell asleep and then take his picture.
I get royalty fees Peasants!
Such a spoiled one!
I’ll be back tomorrow once I get a little caught up.
We are in Nokomis at the Vacation house for a long weekend although I will actually be doing work while we’re here because I’m obviously a masochist or boring or both.
Yesterday at lunch time I quickly ran over to the postal place to mail off some packages to Tennessee and Virginia so they’d arrive in time for Christmas. I figured with 10 days of time ground shipping should be no problem but apparently the post office is mega expensive and the postal store said FedEx was my best option of one of the packages and priority mail on the other. Anywho, I walked out of there seventy one dollars poorer and I don’t even know how.
I’m positive I told the girl I was in no hurry for the packages to arrive in two days. I’m even more positive I said I didn’t want to spend a fortune. And I know I said I that I was perfectly fine with snail mail or ground shipping.
I was dupped and I didn’t even see it coming.
I have three more packages to mail today. The most important of which are the kids because it’s not only his Christmas presents but also his birthday presents so the third package well, I might just return that gift and send a damn gift card. I’m not paying anymore jacked up charges. That’s ridiculous.
We had a brief cold front blow in this morning. It was just cool enough that Hank allowed me to put his cute little sweater on.
Mostly, he tolerated it. But how cute is that sweater! It only lasted an hour. He’s back to his ‘Naught is the new nice’ shirt.
That’s it for me, I’m off for a quick run and then on to some work.
MacGyver and I are slowly but surely getting back into our groove and getting all caught up. We ended up at the walk-in clinic yesterday for lunch yesterday because MacGyver still has a heck of a cold and my sinuses were on fire because this is pretty much the story of my life…
But the good news is, I don’t have bronchitis anymore, and since I didn’t run at all the entire time that I was in Tennessee and Ohio I feel much better now and I’m running again! I’ve already run twice this week! And when I’m not running I look like this…
Go me, Go me, Let’s Party, Go me, Go me, Let’s Party. ( Don’t you love how the guy in front looks at the guy in back just to make sure he’s also doing the dance just to make sure he’s not the only one who looks like an idiot and the guy in back is all like ownin’ it like he don’t even care who’s watching. I like the guy in back. He’d be my choice of a friend for sure. Just sayin.)
Anywho, MacGyver and I are now feeling much better and getting back to normal. Hopefully by next week we’ll be all caught up. I have some more photos from my trip to share with you tomorrow and I also want to tell you about this really awesome town that I learned about. Oh and some really interesting running tech things that I’ve been using. All that will be coming up in the next week. Also, I’ve got a gift post coming up for the holidays and this year I’m going to do a craft post which a new thing since I’ve never done that before.
I’m also going to do the usual cookie post and some other baking post and I have a few other exciting things too but for today I can’t leave you in suspense any longer I’ve got the best thing ever. Cat farts.
