Friday, I went back to work. As expected, the boss seemed to have a few issues but he kept quiet about most of them, and even said something nice about me in the staff meeting today. I think he was taken aback by the fact that even though I’d been out of the office for 4 days, I was still able to make all of my deliverables. Mostly because I’m pretty caught up there. So anything he’d asked for, I had for him first thing. BAM.
Seriously. Being out for 4 days, then coming in and being almost all caught up by the time lunchtime rolls around. Hmm. I really think I need to do something to challenge myself.
My boss #2 is the cutest thing ever. He’s so funny and has the nicest smile. I wonder if he’d let me take a picture of him to post on my LJ. Haha.
When I got to work, there were gifts galore! This team, who I’d been supporting only a few months, went all out for me! One lady got me a cute basket full of peppermints and an instant lottery ticket (I didn’t win), another got me a basket of Mary Kay stuff, and another got me a nicely scented candle from White Barn Candle Co. Can’t go wrong there! There were also cards all over my desk. What a pleasant surprise. It really does make me feel appreciated and like I DON’T do everything wrong.
After work, I went to the chiro. Then I treated myself to dinner at Panera. Ooo, I love that place and had been craving a cinnamon crunch bagel for days now. I had my usual– the You Pick Two deal: chicken noodle soup and asiago roast beef, hold the onions. Yummy!! Then I went to Heritage, where I was battling major cramps. I met up with two more LJ users <3!! and then we hung out, chatted, and some people watched parts of Muppets Christmas Carol.
I was sooo happy to see Rob there tonight! It had been nearly a month since I saw him last, so it was long overdue.
We played broomball at The Chiller and it was sooooo sweet. By now, the cramps had dissappated (thank God), so I was in much better spirits than earlier. I had so much fun, I didn’t think I’d enjoy it so much! I’d totally play again. I loved when Jenny E kept falling at random. Yes, I fell on my butt a couple of times, but nothing really serious. There’s nothing like chasing a ball around on ice (in tennis shoes; no skates!) with “brooms” trying to hit them into goals. Rob took tons of pictures and he said I can have them, so hopefully I’ll have some to post soon.
After broomball, Rob, Kelly, Tyler, and I ate at Steak and Shake where Bizzy and Mark joined us. Rob paid for all of us because he’s awesome like that. He left early, though, because he wasn’t feeling well. Poor Rob.
My favorite quote of the night is when “Everybody Dance Now” by C&C Music Factory was playing in Steak and Shake, said by Tyler:
This makes me want to take my clothes off.
I got home and Craig was here, and more cleaning was done. Chris was decorating my birthday cake. I’m excited for my party. I can’t believe the day is here. I hope it’s a success and fun and some of my dreams come true, at least. Heh.
So, Kelly Clarkson has this song on her album called “Addicted.” Yeah. It’s sweet. I can’t stop listening to it.
I should probably go to bed. It’s getting close to 5am. I’ve been up for almost 24 hours and it totally doesn’t feel like it.
Oh, before I go:
