 I know.  I never blog anymore.  I'm on Facebook now but honestly I rarely post over there either.  I have become a very uncommunicative, anti-social butterfly.  

Work is work.  Busy as hell with all sorts of politics and bullshit.  Some days I like what I do; other days I hate it with the angry hate of a thousand suns.  I have yet to decide what I want to do - do I want to look for another job?  Would things be any different someplace else?  Do I even want to stay in IT?  If I could actually answer those questions (and the whole host of others swirling around in my head) I might be able to make some decisions and move forward.  As it is I'm pretty much in limbo.

So I'm focusing on non-work stuff for the moment.  Things like upgrades and renovations to the house.  Getting new toys now that I (FINALLY) got wifi at home.  Vacation.  You know, fun stuff.  

Here's the list:
1.  Schedule the first home visit with the bathroom re-modelers.  We did the phone estimate so now it is time to have him come out and measure, draw pictures, and provide a somewhat more accurate estimate.  If I'm cool with what he tells me (and I like him, that's a big thing) we'll move to the third step of picking out fixtures and finalizing the estimate.  

2.  Research the various tablets available and decide if a) I really want a table and b) which one.

3.  Research laptops and decide if a) I really want a laptop and b) which one.  
You might ask why I'm looking at both tablets and laptops.  Well, I have a desktop and I use that for surfing the web right now and when I work at home.  I'm thinking of adding a laptop to that so I can work via wifi and I'm not tied to my office.  I also prefer writing on a laptop rather than a PC because I can get more comfortable.  But I don't want to lug a laptop around when I travel or back and forth to work, etc.  Plus sometimes I just want to check FB or Tumbler without booting the PC up but with a bigger screen than my phone.  So I may get one or the other or both.  Yes, I like toys.

4.  Schedule excursion for the next vacation.  Dad and I are doing our usual thing of going on a cruise.  I just haven't gotten around to scheduling the excursions yet.  

5.  Schedule my vacation at work.  This is important!  

6.  Get a new couch.  I replaced the cushions on my old couch and that worked but now I'm ready to get a new one.  

7.  Have Goodwill or AmVets pick up the old couch.

8.  Other house stuff.  Like painting the mailbox.  And pruning the almost dead trees.  And cutting back the plants that are trying to take over since I haven't had time to garden this year.  

I'm sure there is more.  There is always more.  
Now it is time to go to yet another meeting (I swear I spend half my life in those).  I would promise to blog more but we all know I'd fail horribly so I'll just say later.

I did not get breakfast eaten at home this morning (I know).  Too much time coughing, trying to hack up a hairball or something.  Every couple of minutes while getting ready this morning I was stopped by a major coughing fit.  Damn cold.  Left me running late to get out the door although I still managed to get to work only a five minutes after 8am.  No, I don't know how I did it either. 

Luckily it was an easy morning and breakfast was eaten in peace.  Today was lighter on the meetings than a normal day as well - an hour and a half white board design meeting (think three people around a conference table taking notes while I stand, draw, and talk out what is in my head) and an hour project core team meeting.  Leaving me lots and lots of desk time.  I'm still woefully behind on pretty much every one of my tasks - most of which are due either Monday or Thursday of next week - but I did make some progress today.  So Yay Me!

The coughing has only made me miserable about a dozen times today.  Sadly that is not an exaggeration.  And yet it represents a slight improvement over yesterday!  I still feel pretty much like crap but improved crap if there is such a thing.  

Now, despite the fact that I have far too much to do, I am going to call it a day so I can go home and collapse.  I have housekeeping/life things to take care of - like paying bills, cleaning the bathrooms, vacation prep stuff, etc.  I think most of that will wait for the weekend though as I expect to completely fall out on the couch and be a slug once I get home.  I will eat because the cold meds make me loopy if I don't (although I'm not hungry, at all).  Then sleep.  As much of it as I can get before it's time to get up and do this again tomorrow.
