and I thought Monday was rough…

So if yesterday was a long, tedious day, today was the next best thing to eternal damnation. The work was just about impossible again and then there was the issue with the snow… Ohhh my god. It was rainy this morning. I knew it was supposed to turn to snow, but somehow I guess I just didn’t really beleive it, lol. I thought maybe some kind of freezing rain or icy mix, but no… it was definitely snow. The rush hour traffic was hell this evening… what should be a 20 minute drive, but is usually a half hour to 45 minutes in rush hour was just about a 2 hour drive today. Oh man, I wanted to cry. There was some serious road rage happening in my car. And it all starts up again tomorrow. I may even go in early and stay late tomorrow. Today was a light workload (well not for me, because I always work on the holdover from previous days- the stuff that someone’s already gone through and couldn’t figure out), so tomorrow it should be extra busy. How many temps do you know that put in all sorts of overtime? Yep, that’s what I thought… just me.

It was a relaxing night though… had some dinner, watched TV- American Idol and then House, worked out for a bit, then talked to Tim for a bit on the phone. The date is on for tomorrow. I don’t know how it’s going to go. He seems really nice, but maybe a bit shy or something. The phone conversation tonight was just slightly awkward- and short, but it was getting late. Oh well, I’m sure it won’t be too bad tomorrow. I’m usually pretty good at keeping a conversation going. The other night I couldn’t shut up. I kind of felt bad, lol. I wish I could stop with the jokes. I mean, people who know me know my sense of humor and find them funny, but it’s probably a bit strange for someone who doesn’t know me. Oh well, he’ll know me soon enough.

In other news, Jenn may come with me and my family to North Carolina in May. That would be really cool. I am so psyched to go (whether she comes or not). If she comes with us, I know I’ll really have a blast (did I really just say I’d have a blast???). Man, I cannot wait for warm weather, the beach, a week off from work… Just thinking about it makes me happy… and a little impatient, lol.

OK, well on that note, I think I will head to bed, where I’ll be dreaming of warm, sunny weather… NOT two hours spent in a tundra- like I-84 during rush hour. Night all!

Rainy days and Mondays… always get me down

Well, it wasn’t rainy (actually it was quite nice), but it certainly was a Monday. Ugh, and a long Monday at that. What is it about Mondays? I mean, I know the obvious you’re just getting back from the weekend, but I dunno… it seems there’s something more. I think I’d dislike Mondays even if I had a job that I loved. I guess it’s all psychological.

Anyway, it was one of those days that just wouldn’t end. It was ridiculously unproductive too. I got put to work on a problem that was just a mess and took me damn near the whole day to solve.I hate feeling unproductive. Hopefully tomorrow is better.

It’s supposed to snow tomorrow…. argh. I am so sick of the winter. Damn freakin’ groundhog and his stupid shadow :-p Oh well, what are ya gonna do? Spring is near. I’m just getting really impatient. The grey weather always gets me a bit down. I think it has that effect on most people though. Everyone seems a bit miserable lately. Soon enough, soon enough…

I thought I had more to post about, but I think I lost it, lol. Hrmm… perhaps it will come back to me tomorrow :-)

Till next time…

The best soy latte that you ever had… and me

Hello out there… I’m really digging this whole blogging thing. Look at me, several posts a day. I was never that good about updating my Livejournal.

Anywho… today was a really good day… shopping with mom, Sunday night diinner with the family… talkin to a new boy 😀 It’s funny, I was so nervous to return his call, but I did tonight and it went really well. Actually, I couldn’t shut myself up. I hope I didn’t talk too much. So typical of me though, really. I’m the kind of person who like psyches themselves out over the stupidest little things and then does just fine once the moment comes. Like iwth public speaking… I used to really freak out about it, but then I’d get up there and the adrenaline would kick in and I would kick major ass… I don’t worry about that stuff so much anymore. I mean, I still get nervous, but I always know now that it will all turn out ok and I’ll be a success… Ok, enough of me rambling about my skills as an orator.

Back to the guy. I just got off the phone with him and we have a tentative date set up for Wednesday after work. WooT! ( <–I used to despise that, but it’s somehow grown on me. I am a jackass.) I haven’t had a date in about three months I think, so this should be good. I used to date so much… what’s happened to me. I’ve become some kind of homebody lately. Anyway, he’s ab it older than I usually date, but he’s cute and nice and just seems like a genuinely good person… and I know he’s looking for the long term, which is cool. After three years of being very single (well, maybe not VERY, but you know…) I am ready for something a little more serious again- not that I want to just jump into anything. I don’t just settle too easily. I REALLY have to like someone. I have too much self-respect to just settle for anyone. I’m worth more and deserve more than that. When someone good comes along, I know it… and only then am I willing to settle. So yeah… expect an update on all that. If not in the next couple of days, definitely Wednesday after the date we may or may not have, lol.

Bah. Gotta head to bed… Alarm goes off in t-6 hours ( ish).
