Friday Finale


It’s Friday.  And what a week it’s been.

This week had a theme:  Learn something new every day!

Yesterday, I had a phone conversation with the Department of Revenue, as they had questions about a form I submitted.  Over and over.  Good times. I learned a lot, though. Thank God for the people who notice your mistakes before months go by, eh?

I sold a garbage truck to the county. I learned something here, too. Who knew grabber arms were a separate asset?  Not this gal. Is it bad that this is one of my favorite parts of the job?

I attended a conference on Enterprise Content Management.  We got candy, Band-Aids, plastic compasses and barf bags.  That’s a story unto itself.

I’m working the half marathon training plan. I did 30 minutes of kettlebells today. Can’t emphasize enough the importance of cross-training. I kinda wish the plan had more running in it.  But I’m only in the first week, so that should tell me something.

Ruby’s friend from down the street carved her a walking stick.

“I’m gonna keep it by my bed, Mom,” she told me.

“Why?” I asked, envisioning early morning accidental impaling.

“Well,” she told me, eyes wide, “I’m real tired in the morning. I can barely get out of bed.  I need something to help me.” She bent over, shuffling along like a living fossil.

You heard it here first, folks.  After age 9 it’s all downhill.
