I am sitting here at work right now, sipping on this nasty Maxwell House coffee. I hate that it is the only coffee in here right now. Today has been boring so far. I have only have two things to do so far at work. I plan on using the rest of my 5 hours here to do school work. What are you doing? Anything interesting happen yet?!

@jesssamesssa: Im in chicago. It’s like -30 or something with the windchill and Im at work 🙁
It’s slow here today and I wish I was home. I have some work I can do so Im going to start that soon and hopefully it will keep me at least awake a little bit. My coffee is still sitting here so I need to get on that too and maybe it will help. Today is not a day for work. It’s a day to be at home under some warm blankets watching netflix :

@jesssamesssa: I am already gearing up for a long, boring day here at the office. My workload has been incredibly light lately and I find myself practically begging for work to do!
A note on the bad coffee, what is it with offices providing the crappiest coffee to their employees?! My office has 3 different blends, plus a decaf and all of them are barely drinkable!
I think all companies should invest in high quality espresso/cappucino machines for happier, more productive employees!

Not that great. Called out sick this morning since I was having hot flashes and cold sweats all morning before I was suppose to go to work and now I am suppose to be studying for insurance since I was only schedule to work 1/2 a day today to study. So going to be doing that for the rest of the day.

Today is doing good…kind of slow. I have lots of cleaning to do around the house since I lounged with DH all weekend.
Went to my prenatal appointment this morning and heard the baby’s heart beat on the doppler! 😀 Got some blood work done…the lab tech was really awkward.
Just noticed it might snow here in NC Tuesday night… maybe Wednesday. I really want some effing snow. I love the snow. My dog loves the snow. DH gets out of work if it snows… Yet, my hopes are always crushed. 🙁

@jesssamesssa: I don’t go into work until 6 pm, so I’m sitting here on the Bee. My foot is killing me (long story) and I am extremely anxious because my wedding ring is “out for delivery” and should be arriving any minute now…or it might not show up til 4 pm. UGH! Also trying to decide what to make for dinner…

It’s like 33 degrees here, which after the last few weeks, feels like the tropics! So that’s wonderful.
But it’s Monday. And I have a LOT of data stuff to get done, which is the most boring part of my job. And I have to take pictures of a really important guy who we are interviewing for our Year End Report this afternoon. I suck at photography and I’m worried I won’t get any good pictures we can actually use.

@jesssamesssa: I’m having a lovely day…. sorry about your coffee!!
I’m in the UK, so it’s after 3pm here. I’ve got the day off as holiday because I have to use up my holiday days before I start my new job next week. So far I have walked the dogs, batch made some lunches for the week, had lunch with my mum and watched a film. And chatted on the boards, of course! 🙂

BabyDane was up last night and I have no idea why. I tended to her from midnight to about 2am, but then I had to tag out with DH because I was feeling VERY queasy (I’m 6 weeks pregnant now) and he took over til about 3:30. It was strange… she was just so upset! Like, not just whining-crying, but like BAWLING-crying. I think she had a bad dream or something. Oh well, this too shall pass.
Oh, and then when I got to work someone showed me some article about how a baby was left STRAPPED IN HIS CAR SEAT WITH NO FOOD OR WATER FOR FIVE FUCKING DAYS. I literally felt nauseated reading it. I had to stop. I got about as far as something about the parents were home, played video games, and ate and slept like normal fucking people while their baby DIED- eyes open, fists clenched, rotting away in his own feces. Blame it on the hormones or whatever, but I am seriously about to cry for that poor little baby and the monsters he was unlucky enough to be stuck with as parents. Like, I can’t even use that word for them without throwing up a little in my mouth.
OMG someone post photos of puppies or something to distract me from that horrible story. I just can’t even imagine.

@lolita39: Where in NC are you? I haven’t heard of any snow in my area(Rockingham). Then again I will still have to go to work if there is snow but it would kinda suck since I have doc appts on Wed to take care of.

So far so good. On the west coast so it’s only 7:20. At a Starbucks doing some freelance work before I go into the office I work one day a week (weird freelance arrangement) and when I went to get my drink the Barista scanned it in, paid for it with a Stbx card (not mine) and said, ‘it’s on Shaun today.’ Thanks Shaun!
I’m picking up a new co-worker today (it’s her first day) and driving her to work with me. It’s an hour each way, so I hope we get along relatively well! We really need her skillset, so I’m very excited she is coming on board, but we have a long and likely-stressful meeting today, and I feel bad she is coming in to that on her first day. Trial by fire I suppose!
But I have gymanstics tonight, which always has me in a good mood all day 🙂
Hope all you Bees have good days!

@lolita39: NC here too!! Im really hoping for real snow, not that crap we got last week. I dont have to go to work if its snowing 🙂 yay me.
@Baroness_Meg: I agree!! I have folgers at the house and Cracker barrell, thats my favorite! So smooth!
@DaneLady: OMG that is a horrible article. wow. 🙁 I could not imagine doing something like that to my child.
Here is my puppy, well dog haha She actually had her first seizure/stroke saturday. It was scary. She ran off the couch and sat next to DH. He said she was shaking and looked scared and confused. He brought her to me and she started seizing right then. We took her to the emergency vet right after and the vet said she didnt think it was a full blown stroke or seizure but a mini seizure having to do with vestibular disease. So she put some wax in her ears to help with the yeast that was coming back and we started her on some super expensive dog food cause she thinks she is allergic to her food now. But all is well right now. She is doing fine 🙂 THANK GOSH!

@vttp926: Oh you’re definitely going to get something! The storm is coming up from the gulf. Since you’re further south you will definitely have a better chance than I will since I am in the triad area.
