An Old Saying

Dad was talking to me last night about the dental hygenist that cleaned his teeth. He said she was real nice but "talked like the clatter wheels of misery." What a great saying -- and kind of ironic coming from such a talker as he is. Grin.

"The Learning Curve Is Great"

I find myself saying this at work -- a lot!

Thursday, June 15, 2006


I just thought I was busy at work. I have gotten more assignments in the last two days than in weeks. It's snowballing! One of the negatives of being recognized for quality work! "You did a great job on Project XYZ. Here's fifteen more. Oh yeah, ASAP!"

Just as well, need to keep busy. Last night was watching that "100 Most Inspiring Movies" special. When it came down to the commercial break before announcing the top three, I was thinking, "Gene would be guessing what they were and he'd get at least one, probably two and wouldn't surprise me in the least if he got all three." Wouldn't you know it, the Number One movie was one of his absolute favorites, It's a Wonderful Life. I never cared that much for it but he looovved it. You better believe I was just squalling when they were showing all the clips from it. But what're you gonna do? Sigh.

Been Busy Working

Have had lots to do at work. It's a good thing. Keeps my mind occupied. Had a really challenging day last Saturday. Had a case of lonesome so bad it hurt. But got to feeling better by Sunday so the weekend wasn't a total loss.

And I Keep Going Back

Tell me, what is Wendy's known for? Yep, went across the street and was going to get Amanda and other student workers a Frosty since it is her birthday and they were out. Out of Frosties!

But since they had at least 5 nuggets and some Chili, I was able to get my lunch at least. Had to ask for a napkin and they rummaged around in the back and came back with the kind you buy at the grocery store. Guess they figured they couldn't "wait for the truck" on that one!

Been Busy

Had lots of deadlines at work lately and have been keeping really busy with that. Plenty to keep me occupied. This morning on the way to work, I was thinking about how distracting it is to have a busy job. What if we'd been retired with our days revovling around only each other? I can't imagine having to spend all day every day suddenly alone and no place to go. I'm just now getting used to weekends alone! How do ya'll do that? More power to you, retired widows!
