So it ‘twas a non-month end Saturday…late arrival at work…(9 AM)…an hour + a bit and I’m gone to get what needed to be done this AM…sometimes I swear the dang plant is flypaper…at 1 PM I finally got everything done…just a bunch of little problems…which included the fact that (my bad) I was looking at the wrong transfer map…rats…

Needed to be into work by 6:30 AM tomorrow so the day stacks up right…. so am thinking about an early bedtime…

Nite all

Today ran actually very smooth for a Friday at work…a gentle night…but must attend to a few hours at work both tomorrow and Sunday…rays…I hate when the plant is on 24/7…

I have had the third crazy workday in a row and tomorrow promises to be even worse…HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m having one of those days that if I live to 58 I will never understand…and I am 58…I am physically drained…exhausted…but sleep and the desire for sleep evades me…I have repeated the recording of the Sanctus from the Faure Requiem at least 5 times…I need sleep…I know this for a fact but the desire for sleep is overwhelmed by…a mind that is still active…the is still whirling around in my skull…trying to figure out why jelly and peanut butter toast always lands jelly/peanut butter side down on the carpet…
Am listening to the Faure “Requiem” tonight, not the most difficult piece of music I’ve ever sung…have had the privilege to sing it on 2 different occasions…but it is one of my absolute favs to sing…

I have had a very ugly two work days, first of all the county which we lease warehouse space from decided to redo the parking lot, has the best entrance to my docks torn all to h*ll…and never bothered to give me a heads up, I got an inbound today that was the load from the pits…called my clerk over for help…in the middle of this disaster…I get paged…I’m trying to maneuver a lopsided pallet down a ramp with 3 times the weigh on it then ever should have been placed on it…so send the clerk to check the page…he comes back…the customer service head is p*ssed because I haven’t responded to her “urgent” emails…sheeeessshhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…

I need to get some help in my department…I have lost the ability to be in 3 places at once…

Was blown away by the result of “Project Runway” tonight…I would have sworn Laura was gone but Vincent bought the farm…I suspect that more then tonight’s challenge was involved in that vote off…

Customer service is really giving me the red arse…they have 3 peeps doing the work that maybe requires 1.75 peeps…and we have 2 peeps in my department doing 3 peeps work and I get crap because I don’t respond to a request in 3 nano-seconds…

But a gentle night…

I think I can still taste the Labor Day cook out at my daughter’s on Monday…nice time

Yesterday was the last rehearsal for worship team with the J-Guy…he’s army and is being transferred next week…will miss him greatly…

And K-Lady will be gone within a few weeks…hubby is being transferred…plus she’s 6 weeks or so from her second child…she will be missed as well…

About four weeks away from the start of rehearsals for the Christmas concerts of North Country Choral…can’t wait…a group of 150+ very good singers…and a whole bunch of great peeps…singing great music…what more can the mad one ask for…must give a hug to the leader…we have had our differences in the past…but her unexpected sympathy card when my dad pasted made my day…

it has been a quit day...a restfully day...daughter had called earlier in the week with a "Do you want to come to a cookout on Labor Day?"..."Of course "qouth I" but on one condition, you make the sides and i bring the steaks for you hubby to grill". went out late morning and found there 3 absolutely beauitiful well marbled t-bone steaks at about .8 of a pound each. She had made this very interesting salad with ham, dry italian salami, and almost every late summer , early fall veggie with a nice balsamic vinagrette...a simple plate of very nice cucumbers from her garden...but there was salt, pepper, and a nice bottle of balsamic vinigar on the table...and a very nice relish plate with some of her home canned soured and dilled veggies...a nice meal, and a very nice time...actually she had a very nice desert of an apple bread pudding...which i passed on simple because i had no room left for it...a quit, delightful day...and exactly what i needed...

I was all set to post but cat Aggie has demanded my attestation so there will be a brief pause…

Okay I’m back …Aggie has left and I can continue…

I am wiped out…exhausted…dang near dead tonight…but a day off tomorrow…Labor Day in the U S of A…have a barbeque at my daughter’s about 3…and I need to bring the steaks…still need to purchase said steaks…must needs make a run tomorrow…but that’s tomorrow’s problem…

Over the next few weeks we will be losing some peeps in worship team that I will miss greatly…one to redeployment and one to leave for the birth of her second child and then redeployment of her hubby…both will be greatly missed for 2 very different reasons…the K-Lady and I are so in sync with harmonies that it’s like singing with myself an octave apart…and the J-Guy forces me out of the box…he sings a country/folk style that I find foreign…I come from a classical background and it is a challenge to try to blend the two different styles…a challenge I willingly accept…plus he’s a dedicated, and caring guy that I will miss…

Rats…
