Week... What Week??

Uh.... Where did the week go?  I swear, it was just Monday yesterday, right?  Right??
Crap.  Oh well.
So, if you haven't guessed, I've been a bit busy and out of touch this week.  That and I just haven't felt like writing.  I really haven't had much to say.  Everything that's going on is still percolating in my own head a bit and I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop so to say.
So, I've been busting my tail to get everything I possibly can done.  I'm not sure how successful I've been, but hey, it's more or less keeping me out of trouble.  I still haven't had any real communication from my boss, or his boss, or HR for that matter.  I'm half holding my breath, half ignoring it.  I know I shouldn't ignore it, but right now, that's easier and I could use easy.
Other than that, work is work.  They let one of the contractors go earlier this week.  He wasn't really performing up to snuff and they weren't going to bring him on full time, so they let him go early.  This is both good and bad.  Good because we got rid of some dead weight.  Bad because we're down another person again.  Although, we did just bring in two new contractors a few weeks ago and I actually have some hope for them.  The one at least has a good bit of personality and actually asks what he can do to help.  The other seems nice, but I just haven't had a chance to get to know him much.  We'll see.  April may chew up and spit out a bunch of us.  (I hope not though...)

Boo, as you can see from above, is getting cuter by the minute.  He has learned how to scoot around the living room on his butt.  He can push himself backwards with his hands and feet and then spin himself around (sometimes with a good bit of force) to face what he wants.  His new favorite activity is "empty the toy box".  He doesn't just dump it out.  No, not our methodical little boy.  He knocks it onto it's side and then begins to pull things out one at a time.  He doesn't just pull from the front, but will dig into the back as if he's looking for that one particular toy.  He probably is.  He definitely has opinions about things and will express them.  This picture was taken by GrammaSue Monday afternoon.  He's had a pretty good week this week.  I'm not sure if I said it or not, but he's also really gotten the whole eating Cheerios thing down pretty good.  I'm going to start introducing other things he can pick up and eat.  This way we can give him some food while I'm making our dinner and then he can snack on other things while we all eat.  Almost like a family dinner. *Gasp*

Anyhow, I'd better get real work done.  Just thought I'd let everyone know that I did not fall of the face of the planet.  Nothing dire has happened this week and we're all doing fine.

Peace to all and may the Cheerios be yummy and the toys fun.

Claudia loved cooked noodles and "fixed" popcorn (the popcorn is a lot of work though).

If on-sale, try the Gerber puffs.

We actually started with the Gerber Puffs, since they were a little sweeter, but not obnoxiously so and were sweet potato (which is a favorite for me and my boy...) They also "melt" a bit nicer. I think next up may be bananas. (Why do I always want to put too many "n"s in bananas?)
