Manic Monday #35

I took my first sick day this year last Friday because I woke up and felt like I had been hit by a truck.  So I stayed at home and took it easy, hoping to start fresh today.  But when I got to work I was reminded why I don't take sick days... TOO MUCH WORK WAITING FOR MY RETURN!!!  And while I wasn't at work at all on Friday, I was there for an extra hour or so today.  Next time I won't use a sick day unless a limb is falling off!

There is not better way to start a Monday in the fall than with an Apple Cider Donut from the orchard.  All that cinnamon and sugar does not disappoint.

I had ordered some metal file holders for my department, but when I went to pick them up from the mail room they were gone.  After calling Shenanigans, I found out that someone in another department, who had ordered one, took my 5 in addition to hers.  I had to remind her that no matter how hard we clapped out hands, it does not bring in the Office Supply Fairy to life.

Fall is my favorite season.  I love being able to wear sweaters to work and sipping cocoa instead of my usual coffee.  What isn't cool though is the fact that I when I left work around 7:20 this even I had to use my car lights.  Oh sunlight, where have you gone?

We had a discussion about farts at work today.  God I love my co-workers (who are 90% female mind you!)

Yup, hate missing days, especially when it is 4 day "weekend" (off Friday flying to drill weekend, off Monday because of Jury Duty). I know Tuesday at work will be LONG (new patients and a bunch of follow-ups; plus two other coworkers will be off so I'll be covering at least one other unit). On the other hand, I enjoyed sleeping in today (my report time wasn't until noon). I could get used to "not working" if I didn't have to play catchup so often.

I'm just wondering who is this Shenanigans of whom you speak and why did you call him or her again? I'm at a loss.

Everybody grab a broom - it's Shenanigans.
