What a crazy day at work.  As soon as I got into work I was bombarded with doing training with some new people on my team.  Then I had to try and clean up all the work I would have been doing that had built up plus take care of everything that was newly coming in.  That’s one unfortunate thing about working so early; the other guy that can actually help me out doesn’t come in for 3 hours so I have 3 hours of work I have to take care of myself.  Darn new people!  But enough complaining about work, I love my job…

Other than that it was a relaxing day.  Got to go to the gym and – though it was pretty crowded with people pretending to work out – I was able to get through my exercises rather quickly.  Then I made dinner and we had an enjoyable meal.  Then my wife and I took our son to see Turbo at the theater and that was enjoyable, and we closed up the evening with some TV watching just before bed.  The only complaint I have is that the days seem to get shorter, or I am getting older.

One thought on “Day 106… Monday’s Down!

  1. Today’s song reference should have been “I don’t like Mondays” by the boomtown rats 🙂 as you seem to dislike Mondays…

    Don’t shoooooooot the whole day down though…

    I hope you know the song or this will make no sense…
