Short/Long Week

Short work week, thanks to President's Day. Tuesday I had to pack all my workly goods in boxes so I could be moved to a new temporary cube, while my existing cube (with a window *sob*) and the one adjacent are demolished and converted into an big vice-presidential office. Well, I can work just about anywhere, but I will miss the view. I'm leaving everything in the boxes until the final move 12 weeks from now to who-knows-where. The current cube is directly outside the big conference room on our floor, and the printer/fax machine bay, which thanks to the construction now has three printers and two fax machines. So there's a huge amount of traffic right outside my opening, including lots of strangers from all over the building. I've had to hang a tasteful Quiet Please sign outside to keep the post-conference chit-chat to a minimum, plus I've taken to wearing my headphones all day long.

Went to the gym Wednesday right after work and had a good swim, followed by whirlpool and steam room time. I usually come home after work and drive to the gym, meeting Steve there, but Wednesday I took the bus too, so we had to take the dreaded 22 to the Castro to catch the 37 up the hill.

I was planning to do the usual drive to the gym this afternoon, but when I got home I discovered broken glass all over the street in front of our driveway. Today was garbage day, and apparently an empty Snapple bottle escaped from our recycling bin. So I got out our trusty pushbroom and swept, swept, swept the street. It felt like shoveling snow. I came in and told Steve when he called that I had already exercised for the day, which was true.

I'm glad the weekend is here. I'm gonna buy some new Timberland boots. Baby needs a new pair a shoes!
