Oh, hello! Have some beef stew!
So, I had a recent visitor to this little adventure who didn’t seem to like what I had to say. I was asked “what brought this on”. I responded “It’s my blog and I felt like it.” Well, this person saw that and thought my response was too sharp. I did thank the person for her opinion. I really have no issue with anyone disagreeing with me. But don’t be all snotty about it.
I went back to work today after 2 weeks off. My post-vacation glow lasted all day. I haven’t taken a 2 week vacation in a long time. I’m thinking that next year? I’m going to do it twice. A one week vacation is all about decompressing and getting rid of the work ick. Long about Friday, you are feeling pretty good, but you know you have to go back to work on Monday. Tack on a second week and that is all cake. You all but forget there is a job to go to. FAB-U-LOUS!!! If you have the time and ability to take 2 weeks together, I highly recommend it.
Last night, Herb took me out for pizza at my favorite place. He was supposed to meet his girlfriend, so I was second choice, but I don’t care. It was still deeeeeeeeeeeelish! Steak and onions and mushrooms (my half) and green peppers (his half) and garlic on a beer crust. YUM! And there was enough left to bring home for dinner tonight too! SQUEE!
I got notice today that my mortgage has been sold. This? Is a HUGE pain in my arse! I have the payment automatically drafted and now I have to change that, and I think there was already half a payment drafted this month. I have to track that down and find out if it can be recovered and sent to the new place. Oy. What a nightmare. I can totally envision this becoming a full time job to get straightened out.
Okay. I think I’ve blathered on about nothing enough. More tomorrow. Hopefully.

I like people posting drunk. I will do that on Friday when i return to drinking..as long as the evil dentist doesn’t make me take more antibiotics!!
It is a bank holiday here this weekend. 3 whole days off. Cannot wait!!
I love nothing posts. They are the best. Keep them coming. I should blog soon.

Just be you – people should be adult enough to be able to make their own choices about what they read without getting all uppity.
And…. do I? Don’t I? Do I? Don’t I? Do.
This is the first year I haven’t had at least a two week holiday once in the year. *sigh* Well, might take three weeks next year. Can I rub it in anymore? Oh yes, the four weeks I took back in.. *ducks and runs for it*

Two weeks. That sounds like pure bliss. Unlike the vacations I have to wrap around a weekend to milk more time out it. And then return to work on a Thursday. A Thursday? Who does that? Me. Sigh. I get 15 days a year total—to use for sick time or vacation. My choice. And sometimes not.
I’m detecting much crabbiness on the interwebs lately. People are snarking left and right. Ignore it. It’s your blog and you can write whatever moves you. So there!

DUDE. Damn right it’s your blog and you can say anything you want. And damn right you shouldn’t have to put up with any snottiness. Basically…DAMN. (OMG. Love the tipsy Tricia. Hi Tricia!!)
I’m so glad you enjoyed your vacation. Two weeks is simply amazing to me. I can’t remember the last time I had even one off. Good for you!!
With love and totally no snottiness whatsoever at all.
