rather tough day, kids back to school & emotional "don't want to go" kinda morning from all 3 of us, after 4 days together at home; got to school though & the kids seemed to cheer up when they got to their schools -yay for that!
work was long & hard, very very very tedious Excel report stuff to do - typing in formulas and sheets of information for the next big release I'm managing, which locks down next week - and meetings, long boring, tension filled meetings where the only good thing was I did not have to talk (this time) but still hard to listen to some of the foolishness & NOT interject, but it's not my job in this case - well, just relax girl - they'll work it out. that's at least, what I tell myself. then more reports - data entry is sooo boring I hate it; and these are not creative formulas like database scripts : these are the dull ones that just say 'go to this sheet, grab that, multiple, average, repaste here' _ and again, but just dif. enough that I can't cut & paste the whole thing. ja. at least I had some good music to listen to - Gorillaz at work, which really helped me de-stress after the long meetings & get productive on my Excel & not stew and stress... , and then some Marley on the radio "Buffalo Soldier" & Echo & the Bunnymen's cover of "Sugar Kisses", & Lily Allen's "Smile", and all kinds of good stuff on the radio which helped after the workaday was done. Got some spicey spicey Kung Pao - I love that stuff when it's burning hot - the kids got their fav. yellow coconut chicken curry & fortune cookies - and we were all getting happy again: yay.
yay - a bit of a turn around on the day - good to have some fun and learning each day, when I can get away with it. heh, now I'm exhausted: to sleep w/me! ok - well maybe a little bit of cat snuggling first - since he keeps climbing on my lap & purring: hard to say no to that.
