It's Too Freeking hot!

94 degrees here at home but I know for a fact it was hotter in the city. I am sure someone out there is loving this heat but I am not. The good thing is it is very cool in the building where I work. They keep the A/C going full blast and we actually need a sweater or long sleeve shirt in there most afternoons. I don't complain, I keep a long sleeved denim shirt in my locker for that reason anyway. But man...when I walked outside, the heat was like a slap in the face today. Definitely up about 10 degrees from yesterday.

It was moving day today at work. Every once in awhile, some dumbass gets an idea and decides that rearranging the production floor is necessary. Usually it is because one department is downsizing and doesn't need all the space they have, or someone is gearing up because of increased orders. In any event, our happy little home in the bowels of the building, was turned upside down this morning and we were all moved out onto the main production floor. They are apparently going to expand our room and add more work stations and be ready to start work on a brand new contract. Once the managers make up their mind...they waste no time, believe me. In about an hours time, they had every work station moved and ready to go. It was one big rush. We didn't even have time to clean our area, they just put our work benches on wheels and moved them to our new home. Not so sure I like this very much because my seat is in a direct line with my managers office and he is going to see every move I make. I am a good worker, don't get me wrong. But I also like to alleviate stress sometimes by instigating the others. I am now afraid that my actions will get someone else in trouble so I am going to have to watch out. I also heard he has told other people in that area to stop talking or to be quiet. This sucks, because I love to talk. LOL And our group is a good group and we all laugh and get along great together. Gawd, I am going to have a hard time behaving myself.

I have tomorrow off so I plan on sleeping in and then running errands. Sometime in the afternoon I am going up to Pittsfield to the Hot Air Balloon Festival. I missed it last year but I won't this year. I know the best time to go is early on Saturday morning because that's when all the balloons go up...but I have the company picnic on Saturday so I am going to go up tomorrow and take my chances. They have all kinds of events and vendors but I really just want to see the balloons. My friend Rose lives nearby so I am going to pick her up and take her with me. I haven't seen her in a couple of months so I am looking forward to it. After we walk around and get some pictures, I am going back to her house to have dinner and hang out.

Saturday is the company picnic and so far the weather forecast looks good. Usually it rains...so I normally don't bother going. But I got tickets this year regardless. I actually have a date too...so it will be fun.

Shaping up to be a very busy weekend. I hope everyone is staying cool. I'm keeping the A/C going, that's for sure.

Very hot here today...98F when I looked mid-afternoon. :( It's 8:15 PM now and it's down to 76F.

Moving production areas sounds interesting. Hope all works out well. (Lainie the instigator...whodathunkit)

I love to watch hot air balloons. They used to launch them at the airport in Towanda for the Fall Foliage Festival years ago and the kids and I would go in the car and try to follow them as long as we could. It was fun. Hope you and Rose have a nice day. And have fun at your company picnic, too.

Was hot again here today. And I forgot to add to my comment in the previous post..."So take off all your clothes." I say that whenever someone else says "it's getting hot in here" lol

Someday I'll have to tell you about my hot air balloon experience.

a date??? ummm, why am I the only one wondering about the date? lol. It is so hot here in Mi. I put my eggs out on the sidewalk along with by bread, so I think I smell it cooking. I hope everyone stays cool.

Debby said...

sorry was going to put up a pic of my jacob ryan....forgot. Anyway that explains why his name is front and center.

Lainie said...

LOL Debby I guess you are the only one who read the entire post!

A date...I know I can hardly believe it myself! His name is Richie and he is a friend of a friend. Divorced, one son, a bit shy. I'll keep you posted.

Lainie said...

Oh so where's the picture of Jacob Ryan anyway?? I wanna see!!

Debby said...

Oh I'm so glad you have a date...how exciting. Make sure you keep us posted. Get a pic of him up as soon as I can.

I ASSUMED the "date" was with Rose, to the picnic, not an actual date date! You have to find out all about him and report back to us so we can decide if he's good enough for you, lmao
