Just touching bases with everyone

It felt odd going to work yesterday and being caught up fairly quickly. I can remember coming back from a three-day weekend and being buried for days. Now there's little I can do without the Business Manager first 'approving' it. Sigh... At times it makes me feel as if I'm in kindergarten again. Yet most of the times, it's very freeing of stress. If something goes wrong, it usually happens well before it gets to me. Even when Jay eagle eyed the checks - the only thing she could find wrong was that one needed a date on the memo line, even though it was fully detailed out in the paperwork. She HAS to find something wrong with everything. She always leaves you with the impression that she could do your job so much better - a sentiment that is shared with everyone else in the office. It must be sad to be that insecure with yourself than you must point out constantly how much better you are.

Anyhow, the day went quickly, but I did manage to make an appointment with my acupuncturist for tomorrow. My knee and my right middle finger (arthritis)have really been bothering me. It might not help, but it certainly won't hurt.

We are finally getting some rain today and tomorrow. After nine days of above average temperatures, we were worried. I know that rain and snow are bad words for some of my friends, but I hope you will understand if I do a happy dance for ours. We are still in a drought situation here. Right now, it's all wind.

And the last batch of photos from the weekend

You Are Likely a First Born

At your darkest moments, you feel guilty.
At work and school, you do best when you're researching.
When you love someone, you tend to agree with them often.

In friendship, you are considerate and compromising.
Your ideal careers are: business, research, counseling, promotion, and speaking.
You will leave your mark on the world with discoveries, new information, and teaching people to dream.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. I am the baby of the family. My brother is 15, my sister 17 and my oldest brother 32 when I was born.

This one is more off than on.

Just wondering

What's hurting right now?

What would you rather write with - a pen or a pencil? Any particular type?

What is one topic in which you would consider yourself an expert?

Bonus - Do you remember these -

or these

How about these?
