Today was a good day at work. I'd like more days like today and less days like last week. Today's one of those days when I walk away from work at the end of the day and feel good about what I got done, and am pleased with the way the day went. It's one of those days where I end up working overtime because I'm feeling productive and want to keep feeling that way, and not because I feel like I have to stay to at least get SOMETHING done.

Yup. Today was a happy day. :)


In other news - I want to hit 100,000 words my the end of the week ... that's my goal. I think I should be able to do it!

We now have flex shifts at work. We come to work between 7:30-9:00 and leave after an 8 hour day - between 4:00-5:30. It doesn't matter what time between 7:30-9:00 that we clock in - if we clock in at 7:42 that means our day is over at 4:12. It's flexable day to day and as long as you're at work by 9:00am everyone's happy.

My old shift was 8:30-5:00 ... typically this meant I would get to work at about 8:35 because I am not a morning person.

When we went to flex time, my team assumed the early birds would come earlier and the late risers would be later. The opposite has happened. I have been to work before 8:30 all week, and 2 of my co-workers that used to come in at 8:00 have straggled in at 5 till 9. It's very odd.

Since I worked over this week, I'm using 2 hours as flex time and leaving 2 hours early today (our only stipulation is no one can leave the office before 2pm.) I made it to work today at 8:10 ... I get to leave at 2:10! For me, this is huge. My one co-worker looked at me this morning, looked at her clock, and looked back at me and I cracked up. My boss even gave me a high five for being at work, and looking awake before 8:30 ... which may be because I've probably NEVER managed that before today.

So at 2:10 I get to clock out and start my weekend ... YAY! I have lunch plans, then it's off to get my hairs cut at 3:45 ... I think I've decided on something between the 3rd and 4th picture length wise, but with bangs more like the 3rd picture. I can always trim my bangs shorter myself if they're to long, but if they're to short, they'll torture me till they grow.

Then tonight ... writing. I HAVE TO WRITE. I've been a sick slacker for a whole week, and it has to end.

I love Friday's during Lent at my office.

I haven't been a Catholic for many, many, many years, and I don't do anything else related to Lent ... but I LOVE Lenten fish frys. Especially fish from the place out office orders from. It's a little local church that makes the best fish and they have a great menu .... even crab cakes (which are amazing!)

Yummy. Today fish sandwich and fries. Next week, I'll probably do the crab cakes.



Hmmm ... I wonder if Lent the bunny likes Lenten fish frys ... we shall see!

My coworkers are talking about Freaky Friday ... and all I can think is NCIS!!! She's on NCIS this week! :) It's a little Freaky Friday reunion! YAY!!!

And they have no clue why I'm so amused by their conversation, because they are in no way discussing NCIS.

Seeing as NCIS is the only redeeming thing about tomorrow ... it better be good.

As a related side note - my job makes me giggle. Tomorrow is a casual day and a 'wear red or pink for heart health month' ... uh hu ... out of all the days this month you pick tomorrow? So not wearing pink/red feels like a snub to heart health and not a snub to what tomorrow is. I'm onto you job ... you just want us to look all cheery for that dead saint holiday.

:(

Ugh ... my coworkers have done nothing but whine today. I'm trying to ignore them, I have my headphones on ... but I can still hear them. It's like the stress level is over a zillion percent or something.

Can't wait till the day's over.

Am I walking around my office in slippers instead of shoes?

Yes.

I justify it with the fact that they're Vera Wang slippers (Ok ... Simply Vera from Kohls ... but still) and are actually very cute cream suede tops with a cute silky flower with jewels in the center. They're actually cuter than my shoes.
