Apparently I was busier the last few days than I thought, because I haven't posted since Wednesday. I spent a couple of weeks at work trying to take care of the incredible stupidity of another department who is SUPPOSED to be handling these things but apparently had not done so since November, which means that nearly everything that was sent back to "paper management" was no longer available as paper, since we only KEEP paper for eight days. (Being an imaging department means we make the rest of the company paperless. Sort of the point of our department. When we can't locate a claim for incoming documents, we send it electronically to the department that's supposed to open claims for handling. Apparently -- not doing that. ARGH.)

ANYWAY, I finally finished this task. Whew.

I can barely remember Thursday. I know I did something -- I remember watching Big Bang Theory, anyway.

The only good things about these hours is being able to not just get in a good morning workout, but also have the time to make good use of the swimming pool and spa areas. Woot. Solid week one of good workout, using the tips the trainer gave me, and feeling much better.

Friday we went over to the Borders-is-closing-this-store clearance sale, and I spent WAY too much money buying things I didn't need, but I WAS able to actually put back a few things, thinking to myself that if Borders is still open in two weeks, I'll go back and check and see if the prices have gone any further down (most of the store was still only 30% off), and maybe get the ones I put back if they're still there. Mostly I got a lot of Christmas music I've thought about getting but haven't, since Christmas was marked 75% off, and some books to read add to the pile.


"I'm sure it went under here..."




"Swiffer is fun! She's doing this to amuse ME!"




A cat in a bag. Life is good.



Today was likewise busy. I got up much earlier than I wanted to because the cats were starving, I tell you, starving. And I had woken up in the night and for some reason my brain decided to start remembering a mall that's been totally rebuilt from the inside out and envisioning how it used to be back in the 80's and early 90's (why, brain, WHY?). Anyway, got up, cleaned some of the things, and then we headed out for some of the usual Caturday shopping (Petsmart for moar cat food & dog toys, food shopping, and then to Costco, where I found Brisco County Jr., The Complete Series for $14.99!!!!!!!! I'm SO glad I waited for the price to come down!). Then a stop at World Market for wine tasting (and purchasing), off for haircuts, and home to a big pot of beef stew.

A good Caturday, indeed.

i like the juxtaposition of the lion statue and churro. love that he's in the canvas bag.

ugh to work.

the closest borders isn't going out of business. There are two in close proximity in Columbus and I bet one is but I can't get up there. Praying the one back by mom isn't going under.

He had some fun with that canvas bag. It was hilarious to watch him "hide" from Bo in there! (He ducked his head, oblivious to the fact that his back and tail were clearly in view.)

We're losing our Borders, and Barnes & Noble already closed their Bookstar. All we'll have left in the center of town is two First Edition/collectible-specialty book stores and a Half-Price Books.

Amazon, Ho!

that's hysterical. Mom's fat ass would do that under the bed. 'You can't see me' head under the bed, 15 pounds of butt hanging out

oh geez. I always get bent books from them. If you are a Borders card holder, you can use that online finally as I'm sure you probably know. Since it's 100 miles to a bookstore here, I use Borders.com and amazon a lot.

I think all cats think they're hiding if their head is hidden!

I like our Half-Price; I've gotten some pretty good stuff there. I know there's Borders online, but no offense to Borders, when I shop for books online, it's usually Amazon.

Borders gets them to me faster than Amazon so I usually go with them unless i'mbuying dvd's then definitely amazon

half price is another favorite but that's all t he way in Columbus some 100 miles away

Amazon can be amazingly fast here in the West. If you're ordering books, it is possible to get them within hours (well, in Seattle, apparently, anyway, if typographer is to be believed). The longest it's ever taken me was a couple of days, and this recent time I think it was also because I ordered a couple of memory cards for my camera.
