Just a day [Mar. 9th, 2010|11:12 pm]
A day in which not much happens, but I take pictures anyway

I'm sitting in traffic when I notice I've left the camera in the car, and remember it's a DITL day

Traffic doesn't get any better once I get on the freeway. Apparently the fog confuses people.

I get to work and remember I was too tired to wash out my cup last night.

My to-do list is rather daunting. There's nothing for it but to go out for coffee.

The muffins mock me, but I do not heed them.

Back at my desk, I take the lid off my mocha. At my age I refuse to drink from a sippy cup.


Sigh again.

At this point I'm hyperventilating

Impromptu meeting by my cube

I like phone conferences because I can multi-task when my stuff isn't being discussed.

Someone sends me a pic of our new office. My highcube days are numbered.

Several meetings later, it's time to head out for lunch

I do heed the call of the sweet potato fries

I'm having lunch with my boss and the new manager who inherited some of my systems

More meetings after lunch

They are all about as exciting as this one looks

The fog has cleared and I try not to be distracted by the sunshine

The flotsam and jetsam of my day

We are supposed to be cleaning out our cubes to prepare for the upcoming move. A co-worker finds this and leaves it for me. I wonder if he's trying to call me an old bat.

A few hours of answering mail, setting up meetings, and completing paperwork, and my to-do list is as to-done as it's going to get. 

So I make a list for tomorrow

Yay! 20 minutes earlier than I got to leave yesterday! I try not to feel like a slacker.

Everyone else seems to have gone home already. Lightweights.

When I get home, The Boy is enjoying a crush cup.

Leftover night - I snag the hibachi veggies.

I interweb for a bit and print out the rodeo tickets. Only a week away!

Then it's time to snuggle on the couch with Husband and watch Lost. I can't decide if I'm happy or sad that it's almost over.

Mango ice cream is a good way to end a long day.

Where did you get lunch? It looks fucking awesome. And is that, by any chance, Blue Bell mango ice cream?

Can you tell I miss the Lone Star State?

Lunch was from Cafe Express. Is that a national chain? I love their shrimp and avacado salad, but it doesn't come with sweet potato fries.

And yes, it's Blue Bell. I'd never seen the mango before and jumped on it like a duck on a june bug. It's awesome.

The Lone Star State misses you, too.

I love your green mug. And your food. And why is The Boy so big?

A big YES PLEASE to the sweet potato fries.

The new office seems open and airy, but I hope you're not sitting next to someone you don't like. ;-)

I'm hoping I sit next to someone who brings cookies for breakfast and shares!

I love DITL!

Do the people you work with have issues with you snapping pics in the middle of the meetings? I can't even imagine what I'd say if I was taking pics in the middle of one of my meetings. Might be fun to try and see their reaction!

Dryers (or Bryers) I can't ever remember which one we have around here makes an AWESOME banana cream pie ice cream- almost as good as Hank's!

Re: I love DITL!

Some of them look at me like I'm weird, but the rest already know I'm weird. I do always ask if it's ok if I post them, and some people say no.

Yummy lunch! Hagen Daaz (sp?) has a delicious Mango ice cream that I love.

The Boy is growing! Wow. He must've had a spurt recently?

New office looks nice! I would probably both like and dislike - I'd like having company and I'd sometimes miss the privacy of the cube.
