So, it never snows in Seattle. Bah. Couldn't have happened at a worse time. So much to do and no way to go do it. Can't go shopping (need to finish up Xmas shopping and shopping for Xmas Eve dinner with the fam and R&W) - not making it to our Events Team Xmas Dinner tonight. Our one and only Xmas party this year, and we can't get there, if they're still even having it. If we can't make it, sure bet a lot of the others won't be able to, either. Missed last Saturday night at the nightclub, and it doesn't look any better for this weekend.

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.
