It’s a yucky misty day. Not so bad at work, but outside is unpleasant. Work is actually kinda…not fun, but not aggravating. I’m busy (still testing), but the end is in sight. A lot of people aren’t here today (not on our team, but in the rest of the office), so things are pretty quiet. We just had a short staff meeting (the best kind) and everyone was fairly pleasant. We all still have our senses of humor.
I went back to that cake and candy supplies store so I can make more peppermint bark. I also got some milk chocolate, toffee pieces, and malted pieces. That should be delicious. 🙂 I will play on Sunday. The woman at the counter this time was very pleasant, not like her surly counterpart from my first visit. (“Surly” is a good word. I should use it more often.)
We’re heading to Joe’s place tonight to hang out with him and Megan, but it’s looking more and more likely that we won’t get out of here as early as we were hoping. I was planning on staying until 5 or 5:30 anyway because of today’s deadline, but John had planned on getting out around 4 (we came in at 8 this morning) so he could go home and take care of the dogs before coming back to get me and head to Joe’s. Unfortunately, he had a rather busy morning, so he may not be able to leave that early. We’ll see.
The rumor yesterday evening was that Mindy might get to go home from the hospital today. I have no idea if that came to pass or if it’s likely to, since I haven’t heard a peep from anyone in my family today. I can only assume nothing bad has happened and that she’s not any worse. Everyone is pretty quick to get in touch if there’s something I should be worried about. (NOT a criticism.) I think, in this case, no news is good news.
