Very bummed. And now that I've lost two days work, I'll have to come in the week after Xmas to make it up, as I can't afford to miss any more days. Next paycheck's already gonna hurt, since the company I work for has enforced a mandatory 10 day vacation, and I didn't have any days left (used them all for my surgery earlier this year). I guess I ought to be grateful I'm still working, period, but I'm feeling abused by work. Not getting my exec title back (one of these years, maybe my boss will fulfill his promise - yeah, right...), not getting proper raises.... geeeesh. And this isn't the time to look for other work - been looking; but there's a lot of competition out there right now (so many layoffs in the area). Plus, so many businesses going out of business. Best to stay put for now.
Only highlight today; down two more pounds. And I was sure I gained - been baking up a storm (Xmas cookies!) and tasting too many of my own wares - killer snickerdoodles, if I do say so myself :o)
Rambling now - maybe I just ought to go back to bed... bah, humbug.

Been waiting to post all week, as pictures were taken and Miss R said she'd e-mail them to me, but she hasn't had the opportunity to do that yet.
So, here we are in the holiday season. I love Christmas and everything around it, but this year, I'm just not in. I'm not sure if it's the economy, or all the layoffs (both with my own company and in the area), but it's as if I feel I don't have the right to feel jovial when there's so much unhappiness around. Silly, I know, but there you go.
So, gonna try to drag out the Xmas boxes this weekend and get our place gussied up. Sparky gets his picture taken tomorrow with Santa, so I can get our Xmas cards done (I always prefer to make them, if I can). See if I can't make myself get in the mood. I was just in the supermarket, where they were playing Xmas music, and I found myself singing along, so that's a good thing.
Miss T, if you're reading this, answer my e-mail - P and I would love to see you, 'k?
