Work Sucks

First, my knee.  It was a bit sore yesterday so instead of walking, I rode my bike down to the grocery store to pick up Hubby's prescription and cookies.  I had 2 cookies.  Sue me.  The knee doesn't hurt on the bike so figured that was safest bet.  It's 5 miles round trip so I feel good about that and may do it more often.

Outside of the cookies and sweet tea, food was good yesterday.  I had 2 salads and cookies.  Nothing too wrong with that.

So why does work suck?  Cue the phone ringing at 1 am this morning with an issue.  Seriously?  Understand that I am usually in bed by 9 so this is the middle of the night to me.  The protocol is to try my boss FIRST and if she doesn't pick up THEN call me.  So I join the conference call and they tell me that our third party actually called me out specifically in the help desk ticket.  UGh.  So I'm sitting there waiting to hear what the issue is...and waiting...and waiting.  I finally decide this is redonk since it's only 10 pm in AZ.  So I text my boss to see if she was awake and much to my surprise she actually dialed in and told me to go back to bed.  First time I've ever gotten real support from her.  Alas!  The damage was already done.  I had a very difficult time falling back to sleep and poor Hubby NEVER fell back to sleep last night.  Poor guy!   This particular third party feels it necessary to call my cell over every little issue they have and I am getting pretty sick of it.  Ugh.

So I'm tired today but it's another pretty day so there's a walk and/or bike ride somewhere in my future today.  We'll see how the knee behaves as to which I do.  Special thanks to Ascha2L.  I had actually found that possibility on Dr. Google but I'm choosing to be in denial at the moment.  :)

I'm feeling pretty good about where I'm at right now as far as this healthy stuff goes.  I feel that motivation kicking in again and that commitment rebuilding.  I have a salad all ready to go for lunch today.  Some clarification on the salad thing.  No, I'm not resorting to old "eat like a rabbit" diet to lose weight.  For some reason, they just sound really good lately so I'm indulging in salads.  Ha!

It is Wednesday...already Hump Day so I give you a Hump Day Happy Thought.

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

I would be so pissed if they had woken me up at 1am! Argh!

I hope your knee feels better soon. Biking sounds like a great way to get some activity and not aggravate it.

Wait- you get work calls at 1 AM? That is nuts! Could you even help them with anything or were they just calling for advice?

Nothing wrong with a salad obsession. Getting calls at 1am - gets someone shanked.
