I got my review at work yesterday. I got an outstanding rating and a $1.87 an hour raise. It was really a nice raise. About enough to make me feel guilty if I leave there, but not enough to really make a BIG difference financially. I am really so torn on this whole thing. I REALLY like what I am doing in my job, I like the people I work with and interface with. I guess Iíll just have to see how it all plays out.
Iíve gotten in about 9:30 am every morning this week. Iíd really like to be there by 7:30 am, but then that would mean Iíd have to get up earlier, which means Iíd have to go to sleep soonerÖ and wellÖ that probably wonít happen. Phil followed me into the parking lot this morning. I was already in the building before heíd even finished parking his bike. I havenít talked to him in a whileÖ since LAST YEAR! :o) Anyway, I donít think about it much, but I hate the days I replay it all in my mind.
I put a chicken in the oven for dinner, baked chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy sounds SOOooo good. Iím in my pjs already. I found an old robe that I havenít worn in a while. Itís a fleece on and very warm. I am tired of being cold, its nice to walk around in the evening in. It seems I canít get into my pjs quick enough when I get home from work. Too bad all of our clothes arenít as comfy as pjs.
I went by the grocery store on my way home tonight. Iíve probably said it before, but I really like going to the grocery store. WAY better then going to a clothing store. Ugh!! I like to just wander around, look at whatís on sale and go through the aisles. I picked up mostly stuff that can be made pretty instantly. I donít eat much of it, but the boys like it, and that way I donít have to cook if I donít feel like it. I ran into a guy from work at the grocery store. Iíve never seen him there before. Anyway, I stopped and talked to him for a while. He was a guy I was going to go hiking with, but he traveled for business to some place like Germany for the last couple of months in 2005. He told me heíd twisted his ankle pretty bad, and still wasnít able to run, but has started hiking again. He usually runs at lunch, and sometimes runs with Phil. It was fun to run into someone I know.
I have been playing World of Warcraft recently. I am really enjoying it. I really like how to build your characters, and itís interesting to learn how to play them. This character is a ďHunterĒ and has a ďpetĒ. I was able to go out and Ďtameí one of the critters we usually hunt, a snow leopard. She is the same level as mean and helps me hunt other critters. Itís great to have the help. I have to learn how best to hunt, and use my skills and weapons correctly. Sheís level 20 already, and a Night Elf. :o) I am SUCH a geek!! Though I didnít think Iíd ever enjoy a computer game that was a visual game (Iíve played text based role play games), however this game has really pretty graphics. SoÖ thatís what Iíve been doing with my evenings.
Dinner was good. I love mashed potatoes and gravy. Iíve crawled into bed and am getting comfy. Will watch a little Voyager and drift off to sleep. My kidneyís have been bothering me tonight. Theyíve been hurting since I got home. I am hoping that perhaps it is just the dye and stuff I took for the CT running through my system. I guess weíll see how I am feeling in the morning.
Sweet dreamsÖ M.
