|Because I said so|
The Christmas period seems so long ago. My tree is still not down, but looking extremely sad after the hot summer heat of the last week,. It's gone kind of brown and saggy. The front door wreath is on the kitchen counter waiting to be packed into a box to wait for the next festive season to come.
Depressing huh! I've been back at work for 2 days and I feel as if the holiday season never was, except for the noticable absence of just about all of my office who are off vacationing in tropical locations. The office is quiet and I have got a stack done. Going through all my files cleaning them up before I hand them over in the coming weeks when we split roles again. I'm also doing the work of 5 staff so even though we are quiet I am still run off my feet. It took me 45 minutes today just to sort and deal with the mail that came in and another 45 to get mail out - although the mail was mostly mine. In the form of letters reminding my clients of outstanding documents they need to sign and return.
My boss has seen the lack of staff in the office, including his superior, to disappear to 'pick up his kids' at 3pm each day. Nonetheless, I overheard him organising to meet someone at the pub! This irritates me a little as I desperately need to have a meeting with him and he is barely in the office. Once more staff are back next week, I just wont get the chance. The managers owe me lunch too, now a month overdue. We had a wager on a job and I won
At home the house is a mess. The dog malted an entire coat in the 4 days he stayed with us. I don't blame him, the heat was insane. He didn't feel like doing anything and neither did I! I just didn't have the energy to do my usual weekly clean over the weekend.
The cleaning bug did overcome on the drive home and I headed to the local car wash to give my poor car the once over. She was treated to a full wash, wax and vac. I then went to Kmart and purchased Amour-all and window wash. I also picked up some 'no vac' upholstry freshner. I'm hoping to rid my car of th stale smell. The registration is due later this month and its a gone up again this year. Nearly $600, ouch.
I called my dad when I was at Kmart to ask if there was any products that could help prevent the crack in my dash getting any worse. When he asked how long it was since I had Amour-alled my car, he laughed. My fiance is certainly not one to take good car of our cars and he couldn't believe I was in the mechanic section.
Speaking of Kmart one of the girls at work commented on my $6 Kmart t-shirt I was wearing today. Just a little red v-neck number that was on sale. I didn't want to admit that it was from Kmart so said it was something I just rediscovered and couldn't remember where I bought it. Nice girl though. She's new and from a banking background like me. I just don't remember her name, oops...... I'm so bad like that.
Scott is working late again. Hopefully when the new show starts at the end of the month he will be able to spend a bit more time around the house, and with me. We need to book in our weekend away. He's promised me a dinner date tomorrow night, not sure if that means that he will have the whole night with me or just stop Iong enough to take me out for a quick bite to eat. I miss my boy.
My entries are so all over the place and rambly at the moment. Oh well, such is life.
