After a week off of work, I thought it might be time to log in yesterday. You can imagine my surprise when I found out that my contract had expired on December 31st and I had been shut out of the system because the person who was supposed to authorize my contract extension left for her vacation before sending that critical approval email back to Procurement.
And, apparently, she’s not coming back for another week.
Not being one to waste a little bonus vacation time, I cleverly disguised a visit to Heather’s as “running errands” and arrived just as snack was being served and had a delightful piece of pound cake while I oohed and aahed over the sketch book that SHE MADE and an Amy Butler sewing book that contains a pattern for pajamas that H swears will be the last one I’ll ever need.
After a quick stop at Costco, I went to the Mexican market for my bi-monthly black bean buying spree and it was conveniently lunch time and they had platanos (fried bananas) so, of course, I had to have some.
Because if there’s a way to make fruit bad for you, I certainly want to be a part of that.
Then I picked up the kids and thought it might be time to get back on the exercise train because the last time I put on my running shoes was December 23rd and I thought I might try a 5K to kickstart things and I SHAVED 12 MINUTES OFF MY TIME FROM LAST MONTH!!!! Hooray!!!!!
And then Arkansas lost the Sugar Bowl and the day took a decided turn for the worse.
But we’re not going to talk about that.
Because I’m bitter.
Have a nice day.
