Okay, So, Four Days

Ever have one of those days that didn't quite work out the way you expected (or hoped) it would? That, my friends, was my Thursday. Some of it was my own fault for being all conscientous and trying to make sure all the stuff at work got closed out as it should. And I had another client freak out on me. So, I handled it...and ended up working most of the day. Oh, and then the Internetwebosphere? It went on an extended vacation only to return at 10:00 last night.

The contractors are back this morning to finish up what they started yesterday. And so far? It looks great. As for checking in at work today? Screw that. I've got more important things to do today...like visiting you guys!

Now, in the spirit of an upbeat, happy Friday, I give you some upbeat, happy tunage.

7 hours, 50 minutes until my weekend starts. Man, that sounds like an eternity.

jodi's slacker sanity rule #1, never ever ever "check in at work" when you have the day off. unless you are a doctor and someone's life hangs in the balance, let it go. if it's that important, someone will contact YOU for help. i just try to remind myself that i am really not all that important. :)

I have been so busy this week, I am only now catching up. Whew! Sounds like a tough one all the way around. Work-- ugh. I'm glad that's over for you. I'm actually glad I didn't read this earlier, because I would have been very anxious. Hope your employee got promoted, (of course you will!)

And have a great holiday!

Great song! It was very fun and upbeat. I hope today is MUCH better than yesterday, that contractors are reliable and hard-working, and that you and Beth have some fun!

OH! I freaking forgot to say the song was great! I needed that for today.

You should have a "Chris Picks ..." every Friday.

Happy 4th to you and soon to be Mommy ... again! :)

Perfect song to hear as I'm packing up work and getting set for the weekend!! Sorry your vaca was slightly aborted, live up the next four days (or totally relax) to make up for it. :)
