TGIF!

Jeebus! Haven't been sooooo glad to see Friday in a long time. Work is whipping my ass! I think I'm sleeping a bit better, which is a good thing.

I'm down about 5-1/2 pounds this week. Or I was this morning. Able to wear a sport shirt I haven't fit into in a month or two. Nice.

Woke up this AM before the alarm. Been doing that most of this week. Because I've been going to bed earlier. I pretty much wake up around 6 hours after I've gone to sleep. So f'rinstance if I go to bed at midnight but read till about 1-ish or so, I'll wake up pretty much by 7. And even if I try, I generally will not be able to get back to sleep. i am AWAKE. Might as well get up, go to the john and start the coffee. Not necessarily in that order. *grins*

First eval at work on Monday next week. Had a bit of anxiety about that in the parking lot after work today. I'll get through it, I am sure. I don't care much for the feeling I'm constantly being tested. Even if I am.

They are strict on the Business Casual dress code. Even more so than The Big Clam. And time keeping will also be a big friggin' deal once out of this initial training. Haven't really been an hourly employee for a long, LONG time. Still got sticker shock about that. *laughs*

All in all a productive and (yes) loooooooong week.

But I'm still standing. And I will keep going...

Had a little too much fun yesterday and last night and I am paying for it today. Bleh. Waste of a dang day.

That certainly would have been a long week for you! I'm glad you are still standing.

I thought you might lose some weight once you started work, but 5 1/2 lb on one week? Sheesh! Glad you can now get that shirt on though :)

Good that your sleeping pattern seems to have righted itself :)

Talking about clothes, I don't know why they have such a bee in their bonnet about clothes. Are you working with the public? If not, then dress can be casual. My #3 son is a techie guy and all the places he has worked have a casual dress code. Unless he has to interview a client. Not that he dresses that casual anyway.

I'm sure you'll get through that evaluation. I have faith in you, T!

No I am not dealing with the public. Except via phone - email - or chat. Doesn't matter. I've got the gear. Dress that way most of the time anyway.

Except for the socks. And the shoes. And the slacks... Oh wait...

*laughs*

I wish I could wake up so ready for the day! I wake up in a fog and stay that way until at least the 2nd cup of coffee.

I believe caffeine runs in my veins during the day.

Oh look, I'm anonymous. Maybe I should have signed in. I am glad you are back at work and getting into a schedule. Being a bit more active is already having a positive effect.

Yep, the hourly thing does suck. We have to punch in on the computer, which can be annoying first thing in the morning waiting for everything to start up.

Really, no need to be anxious. You know this stuff.

Happy Saturdayness, Cadona

Gained a bit back over Friday and Saturday. Too much fun, I guess.

Back to it tomorrow!

It seemed odd to not read you online until I realized, "Hey! He went back to work!" I wondered how that change would be working for you....

*Heh* Made me laugh. It is quite the change, that's for damned sure. The jury is still out on the change itself.
