Last night I went to this co-worker's charity. It was fun. Everything is donated and then all the money that is made goes to the charity. One of the things they are doing is building a handicapped accessible park. SO, that's pretty cool.
Anyways, I sat at a table with other work peeps and one of us actually won one of the raffle prizes! I didn't win any of the ones I put in for though. Oh well.
Well anyways, this is going to be a short blog because 2 out of 3 people in my department will be out tomorrow, so that leaves one person... And guess which person that leaves? Me. Haha, so it's going to be a busy day tomorrow and I'll be the one and only IT guy around for the entire college. Yay!
It's alright, I just help one person at a time and everyone else has to wait their turn. That's the best I can do. Tomorrow after work I'm headed to yoga and then stopping at Lowes to get a little bracket thingy to fix something in the basement. Look at me getting all do-it-myselfer! Of course later on in the week I'll be stopping at the bank before work to pay my property tax bill. That's an amount of money that I cringe at. Then of course I need to inquire about fixing the brickwork... I still need to get a new iPhone, fridge, washer and dryer... I'd love to buy a drumset and upgrade my recording stuff. Oh well... One thing at a time.
The way I look at it is these are all luxuries. Most of the kids that the charity benefits can't walk, or see, or hear... Or they have severe cognitive issues. So, for me to want a new iPhone or fridge seems kind of like I'm being greedy about life. You know? Some people have it WAY worse off than to have a busy day at work.
Anyways, I spent most of the weekend remotely working on things to anticipate tomorrow. Plus, I plan to work more tomorrow evening after yoga to make sure I keep up. The thing about anything is, as long as you do a little extra work and stay ahead, it's more manageable. If nothing else we have a couple days for Easter break coming up too, so I can use that time to catch up on work if things get backed up.
My boss is actually going to be out all week because of a sudden personal issue... So this whole week will probably be lots of me remotely connected at night to keep up with the issues coming in. It's one of those it is what it is situations.
Anyways, I'm off to sleep early so I can get a good night's sleep and have lots of energy for tomorrow!
