 I ate at a restaurant yesterday for the first time since coronavirus got heavy in the US. and, of course, it was because of work.

was kinda weird.

wonder if I'm getting fired

I got promoted to project manager in march and things have been really hectic.
I got scolded on thursday for doing to much of the technical stuff (our support dept has been understaffed for months so I've been doing stuff like getting application install instructions from vendors, creating domain accounts, looking over shares.. nothing too intense imo but whatevs).
then yesterday they re-hired a receptionist after she quit and they sold her on being project manager.

with the pandemic I'd been saying they'd hafta fire me but now I'm seriously wondering...

perfect afternoon

I had to take my imac to get repaired (I am not replacing the hard drive myself when it involves removing the glass!) and we stopped by bahama bucks on the way home.
it is SO nice outside with the breeze and a raspa!
I sat on my tailgate and just soaked up the sun...
apparently 96ยบ with 16 mph winds is what I consider ideal.
I need a hammock.

I'm just so drained

work has been non-stop since this promotion.
along with a resurgence of some duties I'd brushed off coming back to bite me.
we also started up blue apron again, so add that to my rolling pile of deadlines as well.
so fun.

so I get pretty drunk sometimes

like last night.
immediately after getting home from work we starting shooting whiskey.
maybe an hour and a half after I got home my boss needed me to do something.
one of my coworkers ended up taking the call while I did the work because lordy was I giggly.
the user definitely would've known I was trashed.
in my defense, it was after hours on a friday night.

psa real quick

our electric bill at the own house was $500 last month.
I bought some of those badass curtains for the remaining windows that only had blinds. the bf put them up in the living room (which is right next to the bedroom, and also I have to make a mad dash through the cold living room on the way to my morning shower) and it has made a ~much~ bigger difference temperatures-wise than I anticipated.
we hope the curtains, in combination with several other changes, make a significant difference in the number of kilowatt hours we use this billing cycle.

fun times

last weekend I took my sisters to the book sale with me.
it was also the first snow of the season.
I got hit in the back with a snowball thrown by my oldest sister. then she aimed at my other sister who promptly began chasing her. both were running around in the front yard laughing and screaming.

have I mentioned my sisters are each about 20 years older than me?
gotta love these guys lol
