Morning Guys..


The flight home wasn't too bad last night. Not a lot of turbulence and I was still able to hit my driveway by 10:30 pm. The only problem was that it was too late for DW to pick me up so I had to grab a cab.

I'm taking it easy today, dropped everyone offf at school, visited my chiropractor and back home to catch up on the work email. Should be a quiet Friday, if I can get the cat to leave me alone.

Yeah, It's the DW and dds cat, yet the cat ends up pestering me. I keep threatening to throw it outside.

Yeah, girls are loud.

Bummer there was no extra coinage in the check, but at least it's a new start.

Officially closed today because of the snow, but already put in 90 minutes. I should get caught up on what I have been missing but probably won't because the work is pressing.

After all the drama at work lately I have taken to keeping a daily log of activities. I had 148 hours of work time available between holidays, emergency closings etc and put in 199.75. An extra 25% in the paycheck would be nice but it isn't going to happen.

Do you get to take an extra week of vacation? Or just lose the time?

Some bad news. For budget purposes, it looks we will have to cancel the Spring Break trip. If any of you would like to stay at the BWV studios from March 30 to April 4, I'll give you a good price.

I only have a few more weeks to avoid the DVC holding points situation. I guess we could consider a trip later this summer, but will probably just bank them to next year.

Sadly, I just lose the time. I would like more vacation, but I don't even have time to take all that I get as a base. I told my assistant before she started her new position that she would find working on salary she really will be making less per hour than as an hourly employee. She found out I was right.

I like it! As long as I get sunshine the temperature isn't that big of an issue . It is sunny and 13 in American (really cold in Canadian), but it is much better than 35 and rainy which is "normal" around this time of year.

Sorry to hear that. I know you were looking forward it, but as the voice of economic reason in your family I'm sure you made the proper choice.

Sorry to hear this Norm. Smart to follow the budget, but sucks you got to give up the trip.
