Sitting here at work and thinking Id rather be doing something else. Probably will make my escape for lunch shortly and head home to let Sparky out and grab some lunch.|
Workday isnt too bad so far. Working on re-creating a few reports that need done since upper management decided they wanted to change the categories in which we count reservations. Not only do I need to re-do January 2004, but will have to re-do all of 2003 on a daily basis as well. sucks to be me
Spent yesterday running around for most of it. Took Sparky (puppy) and Nero (cat) to the vet for checkups and shots. $250 later, I now have 2 healthy pets.
Came home, took Sparky for a walk, then headed to the grocery store to pick up a few things. Worked on starting dinner and chatted online briefly before heading to the eye doctor. You'd think after 10 years of wearing glasses that my presciption would change a bit. Nope, same thing. So I opted for a new pair of glasses anyways. Cheap plan that my employer offers only covers frames of $125 or less and its up to me to pay for the difference. Of course I would find frames that I liked in the $250-$300 range. After looking for a bit longer, I found a pair that I liked for around $180.
Looking at finances, I think I may need to opt for a parttime job again. As much as I dont want to, I think it may be necessary again. Or I need to change my priorities (less frequent bar trips, smoke fewer cigars) I did want to go to IML this year, but the way its looking, i might not be able to go.
