How in ghod's name has it been five days since I last posted? Okay, let me sum up.

On Friday afternoon, just as I was shutting down and getting ready to leave, my supervisor came to me and asked to talk, privately. I was dreading something horrible as I was taken into an empty conference room, but it came down to "we trust you, you're one of our best, we need you in this area," so I moved Monday morning from the Research team to the Total Loss/Worker's Comp team -- with the added "we're sure you'll be able to help out with Research and keep an eye on everything over there, too."

Eep. So far I have been able to spare a moment or two for Research, but it ain't been much. The last two days shot past in the blink of an eye. Worker's Comp from California alone is a full-time job. (There's a doughnut shop in the Los Angeles area that has an alarming number of worker's comp claims open...)


I just haven't been taking very many lately. So, here's a cat making use of an open suitcase as a sturdy fort:





A carpet makes a good fort, too:




Sunday was my birthday, which was a good one; Mom sent some money (most of which will go to New York with me), my wife gave me two nifty Hawaiian shirts, and I have a birthday dinner coming to me next weekend with the gang.

I struggle, fight, count calories, exercise, and manage to shave off a few pounds -- I indulge a little ONE DAY and it all comes back. Woe!

I do like it. It's a lot of work, though! (And I have my own desk, with drawers to put things in, and everything!)

I like my shirts! :)

glad you like it.

A desk? Do you get an office too?

I bet you do

An office? Good heavens, no; only the superintendent gets an office -- and only the supervisors have cubicles! It's a very bare-bones, wide open environment. But it's nice to have drawers I can call my own!

I WANT TO SEE YOUR SHIRTS. Please post pictures. :D :D :D

And it's nice to be trusted on the job, and sometimes, a pain in the tuckus.

All righty! I'll have to post one of an older one, Barb bought it at Goodwill and decided she didn't like it, but I DID!

I think the rug is more like kitty taco. *g* And congratulations on being recognized at work, even though it hasn't exactly made life easier.

Hee hee hee, kitty taco! He's funny with the rugs, always "hiding" under them!

Thanks! It does make the days shoot by! I just hope I can live up to the high praise!

Best of luck in the new position! I hope you enjoy it.

Love Churro under the carpet. "Can't see me!"

Very busy also and my car battery died after work today. It was probably the car's original battery, so I'm lucky it lasted as long as it did in the Arizona heat. I was one of several people at AutoZone getting new batteries.

Thanks! So far, so good!

Ack, car battery. I should check mine, I ALWAYS end up stranded somewhere at this time of year, and I'm sure it wasn't last year, so I'm due... *horror*
