I HATE work meetings, always have always will. And being Cold and Callous I hate the touchy feely meetings the worst. Team Building, getting to know you, in touch with each other feelings I just cringe…
So, when we were told to come up with our Native Genius, I had NO idea what to put. Native Genius is defined as: something you do easily and freely – meaning you aren’t necessarily aware of it and you don’t often have to think about it.
Since I had no stinking clue, I cheated and went to Facebook for help…. Continue reading “Native Genius”
It’s a sad truth, working gets in the way of cycling. Yep, bills, groceries, wine and stuff costs money. Had I known the person I was now and how much I liked riding at this stage of life, I may have chosen another career path. (One that involved 2 wheels….) But, luckily I am happy now, so I have no regrets. The job pays the bills and buys the bike gear, though it does require I get creative with finding time to cycle!
Yesterday, even though I had to work, was one of my more successful days… Continue reading “I’m just gonna have to be smelly!”
So here it is, Friday, and it has already NOT been a normal week! To understand though, it would probably be best if I explained what I mean by normal.
On most weeks, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, I ride the bike home, usually leaving about 3:30. Tuesdays, I head south to spend dinner with the Manchild then play pool (or like last week, ping pong). Fridays are a toss-up. If it’s a kid weekend, I wait for him to show up and we drive home. If it’s not a kid weekend, I get an extra ride.
This week, so far Monday and Tuesday have NOT fit that mold. Continue reading “This has not been a normal week so far”
Folks I am sitting here today, without wine (I had a bit too much last night, so I don’t need any tonight) and I am just flat beat. It has, without a doubt, been one helluva long week! Three hour meetings each day (which drives me nuts). Working with a new program we are implementing in my department (It doesn’t like me, and I feel the same about it. What it doesn’t know is I have a big stick and WILL use it if it keeps screwing up.) I got rained on something fierce on the ride home Wednesday night. Oh and the Seahawks lost the Super Bowl last Sunday.
Yeah its been a tough week, but then again, there was some good as well! Continue reading “It has been a long week”
Ladies and gents, pure and simple, it was a LONG week. I was sitting there this afternoon in class, with 2 students to teach, and I felt like I was on the last long uphill of a century ride (100 miles) about a mile from the finish. I was flat out of gas… Continue reading “Brain Fried!”
