I had a bunch of chores scheduled for today…and felt pretty good until I got out of bed very late…a planned occurrence…and put my feet to the floor and then discovered I really should have stayed in bed…maybe the worst I’ve felt physically in a very long time…but forced myself to do some of the errands I really had to do…feel much better now…still feel pretty crappy but compared to the rest of the day feel pretty good…

Had an extremely busy morning at work if you consider 2 PM part of morning…an gentle night…I am more secure that I will survive the buy out of the company I work for…for the next 3.5 years that I consider my necessary …before I say good bye

With the selling of the company I work for…I spent an hour with the dude that will determine my fate…and not a date I would chose for that to happen…was a low ebb today and the fact that I will be observed loading an outbound tomorrow…there is only one thing I hate less then having someone looking over my shoulder when I’m doing my job…and that’s some body taking 35mm stills when I’m with a lady…I am not an exhibitionist

I’m am p*ssed off, enraged, and plain mad…I watched the latest episode of top chef…how the h*ll could they have voted off Leann…maybe the most consistent of all the competitors and kept the emotional nightmare that is Dave…I realize the producers can affect the vote (read the small print in the credits…) but that decision was plain b*llshit…from the start IMHO Harold, Tiffini and Leann where the final three…David is an emotional disaster…it is an insult that he got to the finally three…mark me Bravo TV…if he wins top chef…I’m gone …I sware I will never watch your d*mn network again
I’ve added 3 links to the sidebar tonight…the first is the new company I work for…the second is the company I’ve worked for 30+ years…and the last is the foundation we also ship for…
Big news, the firm I work for was sold to a large corporation based in India…my position and longevity in the firm I knew days ago it was happening…but unable to speak…on one hand it throws a completely different set of numbers into the equation…on the other hand all things being equal it will probably give me the 3 and a half years I need before I intended to leave and do something else…but will deal with what comes…

I did not get the day I wanted, but the day I got was acceptable…several things still “in the air”…several things still to be resolved…but then…that’s life…

A very frustrating day…as I supervise shipping/receiving and more my chief enemy at work is not the customer…but the customer service department which seems to forget on a daily basis who they work for…they will sell a particular seldom sold product…which we haven’t sold much in years…therefore what stock we’ve got has sat for months/year/decades in some cases in an unheated warehouse…and sell the exact inventory amount…and promise today shipment with out first checking…and never considering work load for the day they promised shipment…well when I did manage to locate the product…10 of 24 rolls have been sitting in the house for the last 6+ years and I had quality problems with 6 of the rolls…5 I figured could be corrected and one was …h*ll there was no way…and I was proved right…so I tried to get a hold of the CS Rep at 10 of11 and discovered she had already left for her 11-12 lunch hour…if I pulled that crap I’d be gone…when she finally got back I got the usual arrogant crap about what happened…sheeeeesh…!!!

Had to make a run for cat food tonight…only one store sells the brand I need…and as one of my cats has a urinary tract problem really have no choice but buy top of the line…the gag is that the only store in town that sells the brand is farm/tractor…feeding a couple of cats with food sold by a farm supply…there is something hilarious with this picture…

Cat aggie has been in one of her if you don’t pet and cuddle me now moods I will absolutely die…from time to time now is not an option form my point of view but I am given no choice in the matter…

Am finally turning the corner on a couple of bad physical/emotion down weeks…a beautiful spring day…and most of my distress could be directly connected to the winter…I have suffered on all levels from the worst case of “cabin fever” I’ve every suffered through…but the weather has taken a positive turn for the better and so has my view on all things…
