Agony and Ecstasy

Agony: I go back to work tomorrow. My vacation is over. If there is a way to ruin a Saturday more than having it be the end of vacation, I don't know what it is. (I do know how to make a clumsy sentence though). These two weeks flew went by much more quickly than I thought they would. I've been off because the kids had no camp or day care options leading up to school that just started this past Thursday. I thought it was going to go by slowly, with much whining, fighting and complaining. I was wrong. About the time part, that is, there was much whining, complaining and fighting. Actually, more than I thought there would be.

So, yeah, I go back to work. Back to the grind. Yipee. Yay. Hurmph.

Ecstasy: I got my AirPort Express to work. After much searching, message board reading and complaining (on my part this time) I got my AirPort to play nice with my non-Apple computer and router. Now I can stream the music that is on iTunes on our computer upstairs to the stereo downstairs. As an added bonus, I can control iTunes from my iPod Touch anywhere in the house. It is the ultimate dream of a lazy-ass music lover! (I sound like a commercial. Hey Apple, if you like the plug feel free to send me free stuff. Just e-mail me. The button is over on the right. Thanks!)

So that is my Saturday so far. I'm not sure what to do for the rest of it. What are you doing today?

Back to work will be a vacation from all the whining, fighting, and complaining. Then again, if your workplace is like mine - no, it's probably the same old thing there too.

Why does vacation time seem to move so much faster than normal time?

Good luck tomorrow!

Florinda: Thanks. I'll need it!

I'm sure I'll see whining and complaining. That's what most people seem to me best at.

Yes, vacation time seems to go much faster.

Well, I have a couple of vacations coming up in Nov. and Dec. so, I have to suck it up and work for now.

I had me a busy Saturday of running errands. Now I'm headed to the gym...fun. :-/

Hope work doesn't drag too much for you tomorrow.

DC: Thanks. I hope so too. Have fun at the gym! :)
