Not Good at Not Working

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

Given the circumstances, I guess I’m supposed to be sitting around the house in sweat pants, eating ice cream and watching Oprah. Unfortunately, I haven’t exactly been living the dream, yet. Instead, I managed to work about 7 hours over the weekend which, in turn, led to minor issue that cropped up on Monday morning where no one could save any files to the server, that caused me to have to put in some additional time to resolve that little faux pas. Add in today’s hour in the office and tomorrow’s meeting and I’ve pretty much covered my 10 hours for the week (I’m working 10hrs/week for February to help transition the department).

It hasn’t all been work and no play, however. I watched the Superbowl Big Game on Sunday, although the commercials left a little to be desired (where was the ad with the guy who was supposed to propose to his girlfriend?), started my training for the AIDS ride on Monday with a quick jaunt up the coast (the weather was perfect!), and got caught up on a lot of little things that I haven’t been able to get to lately. I also discovered that there are but two primary groups who are active during the day: seniors and stay-at-home moms, neither of which I can identify with, as of yet.

Oops, gotta run, Oprah’s on…

    i think you should add an odometer looking counter that shows how many miles** you've gone in your prep-training. ((** that's miles on your bike, not on the couch))
