Fascinating Doctor Who facts, JP. We just started Season 4, and it's pretty much just as cheesy as the last one. Hoping it gets better soon.
I had my meeting yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon, and it was just with my night shift supervisor. If I had known that, I would not have been freaked out for FOUR DAYS! She had given me a great review like 2 weeks ago, and this was just the "need you to work on" stuff that hadn't been included in the review. WHEW! I was so relieved. I'd been fighting worry all weekend and even right up to getting there. The irony is she hadn't even let on that the meeting was with her when I worked with her on Sunday night; just kept reassuring me that "it probably isn't that bad" and such. The punk.
I'm glad she shared with me the things she did - I guess I need to work on changing some people's perceptions about me. I have walls up I didn't know I had. It's easier knowing that, though, because then I can work on it. Afterward, she told me to go home, have a drink, and relax.
Believe me, it was time to do that...I had three very busy nights of work interspersed with trying not to worry about the meeting. Ryan just shook his head and said I told you so.
We hired a kid to clean the old apartment, but Ryan paid him and left before it was done because he'd been doing so well - then when I went over to drop off the keys and saw how dirty it still looked, I called Ryan and told him, so then he had to come back over and we took about an hour and a half to do the floors and the kitchen. The inside of the oven didn't get cleaned at all other than a brief wipe down of the door, since I had no oven cleaner. The kid had at least done the nasty jobs like cleaning the **** off the ceiling fan and scrubbing the shower and the mold in the bathroom window. So not completely wasted money. An hour and a half of cleaning is way worth it to me than having to do the whole place. Since he'd advertised on Craigslist, I posted a warning about his work (honest about both the good and bad), and put the same review on Yelp for his business. I'm sorry, but lack of integrity is going to affect you if you don't do a good job. BUT the best part is we turned in the keys and got all of the stuff out long before midnight, so now we can focus solely on the new place.
And maybe do some laundry, since we haven't done any since moving in last week...
So it's life as usual but somewhat new here. No hummingbirds checking our feeder yet, but there's a bunch in the complex, so maybe they just haven't found it yet. I absolutely LOVE how short my commute is...I can actually do more than come straight home, sleep, and go straight to work in between shifts now.
I have two nights off so tonight's a recovery night and tomorrow will be the "getting stuff done" night. Hope y'all are having a good week.
And Happy Birthday, Becky.
