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.
