Well hello, 2013!


It’s 2013.  Wow.  Children being born this year will not graduate high school until 2031.  Doesn’t that make you want to curl up in a ball somewhere?  When did we get so old??

Initech is dragging me down this week, I’m sad to say.  Everyone has the flu at work, I think it’s only a matter of time until I do too.  My coworkers think I’m crabby now, just wait until they see me super sick too. 😦

The being said, my.alphabet.adventure is on standby this weekend, while I see how my health shapes up.  If it’s possible I’d still love to go, but there’s no way I’m going to risk infecting other people, or delaying my recovery, just for a blog.  I love you guys, but not that much!!!

So consider this weekend a “maybe”.  If I don’t get out, it will probably be rescheduled for the following weekend, Initech allowing, of course 🙂  Lord knows my job is more important than anything else I could ever hope to do in my life!!

Stay warm out there, readers.  It’s freezing here in the Burgh.





Home sick from work today.  I won’t bore you with the gory details.  You probably don’t want them.  Spent a lot of time in bed, sleeping.

I never realized how much a break from Initech would make me feel better, even when it wasn’t under the best of circumstances.  Wow.  I need to use those vacation days I’ve been blessed with a little more often.

What should one do with vacation days?  I feel like what you choose to do on your vacation day says a lot about who you are as a person:

a). Go on a fun trip with friends!  You’re making money while you’re not at work, spend it on a single day getaway

b). Spend the day catching up on all those chores you never seem to get around to doing.  Dust the baseboards, clean out your closets, unclog the tub drain (puke!!)

c). Vacation day is all about me-time.  Mani, pedi, that book I’ve been dying to read.  Go away boy friend/husband/live-in Latin lover (I wish!), this day is all about me!

d). Spend the day on the couch, watching TV and buffing your nails during commercials.  Around noon realize you’re more bored at home than you are at work.

Be honest with yourself, who picked D as either their first or second choice?  Think about this realistically now…

I think I need to move to Europe.  France or Italy.  One of those countries that respect the well-known fact that humans, in fact, do need a break once in awhile.  Aren’t vacations there about 6 weeks a year?  6 weeks, my gosh, what I could do with that time off.  This could become My Alphabet Month, as I blow through the alphabet in just a few short weeks.

Yeah, I think I’m packing my bags tonight.  I’ve got my passport right here.  Europe, here I come!!
