Hi honey, I'm home!

Hello hello I am home early today. Yipeeeee!! Well being home early is good but having to come home to let the appliance service guy in, well not so good. I haven't been able to use my oven all week because the igniter was dead. So I left work at 2pm and came home. Matt, the technician, was sitting in his truck in my driveway when I pulled in at exactly 2:30. Normally they tell you they will be there between 2 and 4 and show up at 6...he told me he would be here sometime after 2:30 and he was early! I'm still in shock. He replaced the igniter and was on his way 20 minutes later. Now that's what I call service! I've got a batch of brownies baking right now. The girls at work will be so happy tomorrow.

I hope everyone is having a good week. It's been rather chilly here the last few days but today it's not too bad, sunshine and 35 degrees right now. We are expecting snow tomorrow so I imagine my commute to work will be rather miserable, but I've driven in much worse so I'm not going to stress out over it. There's enough stress at work...believe me. Two days in a row my manager has managed to make the two supervisors in our department cry and that's not cool. I do understand he is under the watchful eye of his Supervisors but the problems we have encountered in our department are the result of mismanagement in other areas, not because we are all screwing around or because our supervisors don't know what they are doing. We got an entire month behind schedule because someone in Sales took orders without first checking to see if all the parts necessary to build these things were available. Had he/she done their job...they would have found out that one very key Printed Circuit Board was no longer in stock or available from the vendor. By the time a replacement was found, 4 weeks had passed and we were in deep doo-doo. So that is why we are all working 50+ hours a week and it never seem to be enough. Anyway, I'd rather not think about that now that I am off the clock.

On Saturday I am going to a birthday party for Cal's brother, Glenn. His 40th birthday was early last week but the siblings figured he was expecting a party last weekend, so they decided to put it off a week and really surprise him. He'll never be expecting it this weekend. As far as I know he has no idea, so this should be good. I have only met one of Cal's brothers and one of his sisters so I am pretty excited about meeting the rest of the family.

I really should go and get a jump on my chores. I've still got laundry to deal with and a puppy to play with. Hope you are all having a good week!
