It turns out I don’t have enough holiday pay banked up to take two full weeks off. So come July I’ll be taking only one week. That’s ok. I’ll take more time later in the year or else just keep working until next summer and take two weeks off then, or three right after month end is done.
I finally got totally frustrated with the left under wire of my bra and took it out. Then I felt lop-sided. It was a weird feeling having one wire supporting and the other one sort of, well, not. It’s all moot now since I had Bran set free the boobies.
It’s raining. Again. In the past three weeks I think we’ve had two or three sunny days. The rest were overcast and rainy. According to Environment Canada, Saskatchewan has received record rainfall for April and May this year. June is following the trend. I don’t mind rain but our golf umbrella is now dust (it was old and wearing out anyway) and we don’t have a replacement yet. I’m hoping that there will be rainbow umbrellas available at the Pride Parade on Saturday (predicted to be mostly sunny – cross your fingers, ok?)
Work is going smoothly. It’s been a nice quiet week after last week’s high stress. Tuesday evening saw our boss buy a passel of Chinese food for supper. You bet that I was there noshing down. It was quite yummy. The deep fried shrimp could have been better though, but their special chow mien was really yummy.
It’s murder and mayhem night. Bran needs me to go along with him to take Boy to work and we’re going to pick up some Japanese (ish) food from Edo’s and bring it home to eat. Then I’ll continue on watching First 48s. There’s a new one tonight and I’m quite looking forward to it.
Speaking of television…as a family we discussed getting rid of Max (the telephone company’s version of cable tv) because we really don’t watch enough of it to make it worth having. When Bran called to cancel it they made him an offer to have basic Max and the package that has A&E for free for 6 months. He figured that was ok. So I still get my bi-weekly dose of murder and mayhem. We can also watch some of the network television should we want to.
I’m a whole lot less tired than I have been the past nights. I made it to 10 pm last night so was able to sleep right through to my alarm rather than waking up at midnight, two or three o’clock. Of course it happens late in the week when I get used to working days. It’s just in time to shift my sleep patterns so I can work evenings next week.
In two weeks I’ll be in Edmonton for the AGM. I have books to read on the trip and after in the hotel room. I have music as well. Since we’re driving I’m taking my computer. That will allow me to charge up my player. I just have to find the proper cord to do that. I don’t know if I’ll be able to access any wireless internet at the hotel we’re staying at so I might be off the grid for a few days.
That’s about all that’s been happening in my life. I hope that next week is as quiet as this week has been. It’d be nice after my last week of evenings.
