Thursday What?

Oops, it looks like it's Thursday already and I've left my 3 loyal readers in a lurch.  I'm sorry.  I don't know where the week has gone, but it's not here any more.
Last we left this saga I was avoiding talking about work and telling you all about the wonderful weekend we had.
Well, I'm still not sure if I'm ready to share work related stuff.  Suffice to say, there are things in the works and if even half of it goes my way, I'll be a much happier camper.  I get the feeling my boss isn't opposed to my ideas and his boss probably won't be either.  It's whether the people above them and HR go for it.  I've got my fingers crossed, although HR has proven sticky in the past... and I'm sure it's going to be worse now if only for the whole economic situation.  (Our production group was "right sized" by 5 individuals on Tuesday... is it just me or is "right sized" more of an insult than "layed off"?  That makes it sound like they were just excess fat or something... they're actually very hard working people who got the short end of the stick.)

Anyhow, I'm both glad and sad that this week is drawing to a close.  I'm sad because it means that I'm that much closer to having to spend my first night without my boys in almost a year.  There have been a couple of times where either I or Gak and I were out and someone else put Boo to bed, but I was always there the next day.  This time, I'll be putting him to bed Monday night and not being able to see him until Wednesday evening (hopefully) or even Thursday morning!  I'm so not looking forward to that.
But, on the good side of things....  Monday is a holiday and then Thursday through the next Wednesday I'll be on vacation!  So, yeah, I've got two two-day weeks ahead of me.  I'm looking forward to that let me tell you!
We've got a full week planned though.  Gak's mom, Nana, arrives here the afternoon of the 28th (Thursday).  Sunday the 31st is Boo's first birthday party!  Monday June 1st is his birthday.  (EEP!! can it really be that soon??? *PANIC*)  Nana will be here with us through June 6th.  Hopefully in that time we'll get a chance to go get 1-year Boo pictures and maybe do a few other fun things.  I am beginning to think this vacation will be more work than work! Oh well, it should be an adventure at any rate.

Well, I'd better wrap this up.  Oh, enjoy the cute picture of Aunt Michelle and Boo from Sunday.  Mom sent me pictures the other day.

Peace to all and may your weeks be good and time behave itself.

Hi Addey,
Hope things go well with whatever is cooking. You deserve a break and something you would enjoy. Got my finger and toes crossed for you.
