sundry stuff
I haven't updated in ages. Frankly, I'm pretty sure I still don't have the energy to deal with updating. Here's the basics:
  • I'm still sick. I'm worse, in fact. The TMI here is that this morning I coughed so hard I threw up. That was unpleasant. G-d willing this is passing. I've had it for a week, and it is no longer a welcome visitor. I would like it to stop now, please.
  • Pampered Chef party went well. If anyone wants to place an order, let me know by Sunday when orders will close.
  • Baby kitten is very cute. He's growing, but he's still kitten-like, so he's still cute. We think his name might be shadow. Apparently he spent the last half hour three steps behind Pipsqueak. Then they both sat down and looked up at Seth. He thought, "Huh. Dumb and Dumber." Which is just about right. They're both pretty stupid.
  • All the holidays are behind us and we're basically done until Spring. I love the fall holidays... succos/simchas torah are my favorite holidays of the year. But I'm very, very, very glad to have them behind us at this point. three 3-day holidays was too much. I am now very tired, and very uninterested in cooking for a while. I am, however, having people over to dinner tomorrow, and also next Wednesday, so I guess I'll be doing some cooking. We'll see.
  • I get to meet cahwyguy and ellipticcurve next week. Whoo hoo.
  • Had a good chat with my boss today. She'll support me whether I want to stay in her group or move over to the Security group. This is good news. Truthfully, I'm torn. Her group is more stable. But I probably have more opportunity to move up in the Security Group. Plus, let's face it, I'm a security person. So it makes more sense for me to work with security people than it does for me to work with a bunch of CPAs. We'll see.
  • A new Target (that's "tar-jay") opened up near my office. I'm going to go out there during "lunch". I'm not up to doing actual eating today, I don't think.
  • I have absolutely nothing else useful to say. Except that yeah, I plan on doing a holiday de-briefing, if only to get some thoughts about recipes down on "paper". Don't know WHEN that holiday de-briefing will happen. But someday.

Yeah, so that is all.

Current Mood: crappy cruddy

Actually, you get to meet with both me and ellipticcurve. And I really relate to the "I want to get well!". I just want the headaches to be gone for longer than a day, and my arm to be better.

yes, I knew that, but I couldn't remember her LJ name. I will edit it momentarily.

Is that the new Target by The Wife's parent's house?

>> three 3-day holidays was too much.


My usual bolt-of-lightning thought at this time of year is that there are no holidays in Cheshvan because Hashem was exercising His attribute of rachamim (mercy).

Just wanted to say that i'm sorry i haven't managed to call you back yet. The way life is for me at the moment i quite literally don't know whether i'll be working one day or the next. Between that, getting ready for our trip home Friday (to pick-out all that wonderful house stuff), and being on baby red alert for Cindy things are kinda wild. As far as i know i'm around tomorrow except from 11:00am - 12:00pm and from about 2:30pm until 5:00 (Trey and i have dentists appointments back to back and we're down to one car *sigh*). We're not headed out of town until Friday night, so hopefully i'll be able to catch you sometime between now and then.

Hope all is well and that you get to feeling better soon!

you're down to one car? WHY?

It's a rather long, drawn-out saga. To sum it up, what we thought was a neglected water bottle spill in the floorboards was actually water getting into my car somehow. Trey talked to the VW people, and tried a few things they thought were causing it (do you know that sunroofs have drains?), but nothing really worked - it'd still get swamped when he dumped water on it. After some investigating, he found water seeping in from under the steering wheel. He took some of that apart, found lots of stuff soaked, and set it out to dry. Somewhere during all that I made an appointment to take it to the shop Monday (of this week). When we got it there, they found all this stuff wrong with transmission control electronics and such and said it was because of the water. I freaked. Trey called our insurance and they sent someone out to look at it yesterday. We're still in a holding pattern, supposedly because the shop guy is waiting to hear back from our insurance people.

I just got off the phone with the guy at the shop though, and now he's saying that everything's fine but the interior carpet and stuff. He's blaming the sunroof drains (which Trey had already cleaned-pout somewhat) and saying that water would only get in under the steering wheel if someone set there and dumped water on the area between the windshield and the hood (which Trey apparently did to see if his fix had worked). I haven't managed to pass that on to Trey yet, as he's on a teleconference. I'm just completely confused. All I know is that I really, really miss my car and that we can't afford replacing it right now with the move coming up and all.

I never thought I'd be so attached to a car. I've been stuck driving Trey's Xterra on and off the last two weeks (while Trey was working on my car - I'm allergic to the lovely mold/mildew that had grown on the carpet), and it pretty much sucks. Don't get me wrong, it's nice for an SUV and all, but it's not my Blumchen.

I forgot to check on the total yesterday. So don't worry about the check. I'll get a check from you when I get the stuff to you. I think I can float the bill for the moment. ;) Heck, maybe I'll even make a trip up to Baltimore to bring you your stuff. We can go to Chus!
