Unfortunately just because it’s Friday doesn’t mean it’s the end of my work week.  This weekend our manager is pressing us to work in our spare time to whittle away at our queue.   Our “perk” is extra work-from-home days depending on how many tasks we complete, and we can get up to a full week at home if we go for that number.

They will meet their doom
Posted on December 29th, 2008 @ 10:15 am

The termites, that is, I hope.  Tomorrow the exterminator is coming back out again to hopefully drill into the slab of the house to start getting rid of those creepy crawlies. After I cleaned out the closet in my husband’s office I pulled up the carpet to track the trails, which go all the way to the wall adjoining the hall bathroom.  What I saw gave me the heebie-jeebies for sure.  Yuck.  I still get goosebumps thinking about it.  *shudder*

Anyway, I’ll probably be donning my headphones tomorrow as I’ll be working from home, too.  My poor cats are going to going to be slinking around the house looking for a good hiding spot.  I may be nice and open up the Kiddo’s room so they can hide under her bed, I haven’t decided yet.

Let’s cross our fingers that they don’t have to open up any walls.

Thanks for the heart attack, cat!

I’m working from home today.  The Kiddo is at preschool, so all there is to bother me while I work is the neighbors dogs barking, and the annoying whine coming from my crappy work laptop.

I have a pair of noise cancelling headphones that, even when they are not powered on, still do a fair job of drowning out most noises even with the volume of the music at a reasonable level.

I forgot that I had my office door open, and was working away, listening to my music, when suddenly my chair jolted violently.  :shock: I turned and looked to see whether my life was suddenly in danger by some uninvited criminal, and was looking directly into the face of my cat.

I flicked him on his side a couple times with my fingers and yelled at him for nearly giving me a heart attack and told him to get the heck out of my office.    Then I waited for my heart to slow back down again (heck I can still feel the adrenaline), and walked out to get myself another diet soda and closed my door on the way back in.

Ugh!  If I wasn’t awake earlier, I sure am now!

Insomnia bites
Posted on December 19th, 2008 @ 9:29 am

Obviously from the timestamp on my post last night, I was up past bedtime.  I couldn’t sleep.  So I went into my office and sat down at the computer, and posted something to pass the time.

Boy did it bite me in the rear come morning… I usually set two alarms on my phone every night – one for me, to wake up and shower, then I crawl back in bed for about 30 minutes or so, and the second alarm is to wake up my husband so he can shower, and while he is doing that, I prep the Kiddo’s morning milk and go wake her  up and get her ready for school.

Yeah.  I don’t even remember hearing MY alarm.  I must’ve been hitting snooze in a sleepy stupor… and then when it came time for the second alarm, I don’t remember hearing THAT one go off either, all I know is I sat up in bed at 6:30 and thought, “crap!”, because I’d WAY overslept.  I checked my phone and MY alarm was still set, but my second alarm, which should have gone off 20 minutes prior, was no longer set.  Which means I swiped the phone to “on”, rather than hitting the snooze again.  Swiping to “on” shuts off the alarm completely, no more snoozies.

Fortunately it was only about ten minutes later than when my husband normally would have woken up, AND I am working from home today so missing my shower isn’t that big of a deal.

But, I’m still tired from not getting to sleep when I should have.  Bleh.  Darn insomnia.

It IS Saturday, right?

Feh.  Somehow working from home yesterday left me feeling like my weekend was already nearly overwith.  Probably didn’t help that we stayed up way late last night playing video games.

At least the kiddo let me sleep on the floor of her room for another hour after she woke up while she played with her blocks and stuffed animals, and alternated what blanket she would cover me with.  She likes covering her babies with blankets, and she also likes covering mommy & daddy with blankets if we let her. It’s cute.

I’ve got to figure out how we’re going to pay for two copies of “Spore” tomorrow.  It looks very interesting, and we already downloaded and played around with their creature creator.

My house is a mess, and I have absolutely zero desire to lift a finger to do any cleaning.  The catbox needs cleaned, too.  Bleh.

I did do one productive thing today.  Well, technically two.  I made my own little badges for my two blogs for Entrecard.  I figured it’s been almost two weeks, time to stop using their default badges and make my own. Whee!
