I voted this morning – the rest of you Californians better make it out there too! And PLEASE make it No, No, No, No, No, No!!!! These are not solutions and they are not going to help anything. I was planning on voting after work because I feel crappy and was NOT going to get up early, but I was able to get out of the house 10 minutes early and figured I would stop by and see what the line was like. There wasn’t one. So I got it done. Go me. Seriously though, I am happy with myself. Before the last election I wasn’t even registered to vote. That was the first election where I actually had an opinion and felt like I really needed to get out there. So now I’m all gung-ho about it or something… haha!
So I’ve decided that being “kind of” sick is SO annoying. I have had something that has been trying to take hold since last week. Finally went to the doctor yesterday and found out that it’s not anything. It’s many things that are all fighting to be the number one problem and none have won yet. So all I get is to take some Dayquil and drink some OJ. Hooray. I so don’t have time to not be 100% right now. There’s just a lot going on at work…
Last Wednesday I was at Verizon Amphitheater / Wild Rivers working Prius Launch. It was a good day except when the gnats picked up in the afternoon – that was obnoxious. Friday I had to go help out at our Lexus office (which made me really want to get an IS for my next car – I had been thinking about it already…). Tomorrow, I have to go out to Irwindale Speedway to work the Prius Launch again. I am definitely not looking forward to getting up at the buttcrack of dawn to get there at 6:45, but I love getting out of the office. Hopefully it won’t be too hot. Thursday I am going to Penske Toyota for RO analysis with one of my District Service and Parts Managers… I have no idea what time I will need to leave to get there. I’ll just ask Josh – he drives so much for work that he can tell you how long a drive will take within 10 minutes.
Friday at lunch I am making a Sprinkles run with a girl from my office… We have no choice. We are being drawn there by the promise of the first day of the limited-time-only Key Lime Cupcakes. Maybe I’ll get another cupcake for my friend’s puppy while I’m there (they make special little Doggie Cupcakes).
I've decided that the only good thing about the fact that all the shows I love are having their season finales right now is that now I will be able to get caught up! I have too much stuff in my DVR. I think it’s going to start getting mad at me if I keep letting things pile up… Haha! Last night I FINALLY watched the season finale of The Office. I normally put any other show on hold for The Office, but last week was also the season finale of Hell’s Kitchen and I had to watch to see who won – I didn’t want it getting ruined by hearing who it was on the radio or tv or something… Then the weekend was busy so I didn’t get a chance to watch The Office until last night… It was a very funny episode and (it is sad how emotionally invested shows can make you) I am SO happy for Jim and Pam. I can’t wait for the next season to start! Stupid summer!! Because I was feeling crappy and knew I wouldn't be able to stay awake until 10, we didn’t watch the season finale of 24 yet – can’t wait to see how it ends…
Next week is going to be a lazy “recovery” week for me. I already have Memorial Day (MY BIRTHDAY) off and then took the rest of the week off just because I need a break. I feel like I haven’t stopped and had a chance to take a breath for a while. They always say that you know you are doing a good job at work when your boss keeps piling more and more on… But seriously, there has GOT to be a breaking point! Or more money… Either way.
So anyway – feel free to take Monday off. That is my birthday gift to everyone. I’m just super-generous and amazing like that.
