Guess how many emails 7 days away from work will get’cha. Well, I don’t know about you, but for me it equals 112. I know for some people that is their daily email intake. My daily email intake is usually about 12 so 112 is a little bit over average. Thankfully I have finally gotten through all of them. They have all been addressed, tossed, filed, or forwarded. Whew.
I forgot to tell you about the hand burning event of yesterday. I was making chai tea latte in the microwave. This consists of me pouring about a cup of chai tea mix into my Pyrex measuring cup and then adding about a cup of milk to that. I put the Pyrex in the microwave and heat it for 3 minutes. I do this every day. However, yesterday something happened. I grabbed my travel mug from Caribou with my left hand and the Pyrex with my right hand. As I began pouring the hot liquid into the mug, it all exploded and gushed over the mug and onto the counter, floor, and my left hand. I set the Pyrex down and was about to rinse my burning hand off when the kittens ran into the kitchen to see if there was a treat to be had. So they wouldn’t burn their paw pads or tongues, I grabbed them and put them in the kennel until I was done. THEN I ran the coldest water possible over my burning left hand. With my right hand, I mopped the mess off the counter as best as I could. Once my left hand felt numb from the cold water, I grabbed a mop and cleaned up the floor. Once everything was clean, I ran water over my hand again. The rest of the day, my left hand throbbed and ached. It was red and angry looking and it hurt if I touched, brushed, or bumped it. Today it looks as though nothing ever happened to it and it doesn’t hurt at all. Weird.
So I met with my boss and am still awaiting word if my request for a 32 hour work week has been approved. I may not hear for a day or two as we are in the midst of an audit. Sigh.
I stayed home from class last night since my hand was throbbing and I wasn’t feeling so well. I’m not sure if it was because of the burn or because of my lack of sleep from the night before. I fell asleep on the couch by 6 and was in bed and asleep by 8. I thought that would go far to help me get through my day, but I still feel tired and sleepy. My eyes are heavy and my limbs all feel leaded. I can hit the hay early tonight as well. Usually I would feel guilty about that because of Bob. He waits all day for me to get home from work and when I do, I only spend an hour with him before going to bed. Well, tonight he is working at the gas station until close so I can go to bed at 6pm guilt free.
In other news, I have received 2 calls from Big Bank Co recruiters in other areas. A while ago I posted my resume on our intranet job recruiting site and I am getting responses today. I have to call them at lunch. I’m not sure what jobs they are calling me about, but it might be time for a change.
