Tired doesn't cover it!

March 19th, 2009 at 03:55 am

Oh, it has been a while! I haven't checked in since before my mom's surgery. Oops! Well her surgery went well. It was a rough couple of days, but she's so independent that she got sick of waiting for me to help her get in and out of bed. She handled it just fine by day 2 at home. These days she's out and about and walking every day. She should be cleared to go back to work in a couple of weeks.

In what little "free time" I have, I've been coupon shopping the drug stores. It's fun, but so much work! I want to start tracking this on my blog - someday!

What's occupying my time - and energy - right now is our office move. The move is FINALLY scheduled for this Saturday. Since I work in Payroll/HR, you can only imagine how much STUFF I have to pack up. My filing cabinets are being taken away today and painted, so ALL employee files have to be boxed up. I must have at least 1500 files between active and terminated employees. *SIGH* The move kept getting postponed and postponed and postponed, and is now nicely timed for the week my boss is on vacation. My assistant just returned after 2 weeks out on jury duty/vacation. So I have no help packing all this stuff up. Yup, tired just does not cover it. I still have to get through two more days of packing??? *SIGH*

Yeah, and all our stuff gets hauled upstairs Saturday. We are expected to come in Monday morning and move on with life as usual? I'll have around 30 boxes stacked in my office that I fear will take weeks for me to unpack. Do they want me to unpack or pay people? I may have to go in Sunday to clean up a bit. Yeah, that's what I wanted to do on my birthday.

I need to update my sidebar! That car is long paid off and yes, DH got a "new" car. It's a 2001 with 82,000 miles. He's so in love with this car - he's giddy about it! We've been so busy with car stuff the last couple of weeks. The "new" car has been back to the dealership a couple times to take care of some issues. Almost resolved. We still need the remotes for it and need to set up an appt to get the driver's seat reupholstered. All paid by the dealership of course. So now we have a new car that needs to be paid off ASAP. He waited as long as he could, but his "need" for a new car got the better of him. He has had his other car for FIVE years. Yes, this is a lifetime for my DH!! It's almost in "sellable" condition and it will be nice to get rid of it. Still a few safety issues that need to be taken care of before we can list it for sale. It would be a good starter car for a teenager. It's in decent shape - DH just needed something more comfortable for his commute. I don't blame him.

In other news: I FINALLY got my turtle tank sealed a couple weeks ago and filled last weekend. I'm getting good at this and I'm 3 for 3 in tank re-seals! Smile The project is on hold because a part in the filter broke. $15 for something that looks like a lollipop stick?? Thankfully I had some Amazon credits and was able to get the part shipped for only 59 cents. This is a Fluval 404 external filter and I have been very unhappy with it since day one. I wouldn't buy another one, and didn't when I got the other two filters. I went with Eheim for those and love them!

Well I still don't have teeth brushed, lunch packed or dogs walked, and I'm supposed to be out of here in five minutes? OOPS! Smile
