I know that I'm not supossed to blog about work. But...
Someone ate my pop tart. (OK, not an eggo, but still a form of toaster treat, meant for breakfast consumption.) I put a pop tart in the toaster, located in the break room. I left for 5 minutes, to answer some emails while it was toasting, and when I came back, IT WAS GONE.
People, don't steal my food. Hungry widow = Grumpy widow.
I am desperately trying NOT to fall asleep at work.
It's only week #2.
When you're new, you don't have too too much to do. Hence the sleepiness.
Oh yeah, and I stayed up til 1am watching The Olympics. That might be contributing to my eye-fatigue as well. But I can't help it. I L-O-V-E the Olympics. Is anyone else as obsessed as I? Sometimes I feel like that girl from the AT&T commercial...the one who is super-obsessed with Michael Phelps.
This is a picture of Micheal Phelps, singing the U.S. National Anthem last night (Aug. 11, 2008) after winning his 3rd Olympic Gold in Beijing. Is it me, or does it look like he's holding up is man boob? Not that he has man boobs, but you get my point.
Micheal Phelps, you are a phenominal swimmer, but please adjust your hand placement after your next gold win.
The Olympic Widow

So just a few quick things that I wanted to jot down to remember this week:
#1: My BFF
called me (the one who is flying in from Indiana to go to the NKOTB
! concert with me) to let me know that she bought her plane ticket. Also, she updated me on some family issues, like how our little brother (aka Booger-Butt) is doing quite well, after his 1st week in rehab. We are proud of him for making the decision to go and make himself well.
#2: I started a new job this week. It's a big change from what I'm used to doing. In fact, it's a career change or sorts, although I'm still in the Cancer Research field. I won't say on here where or with whom I'm working (Hi Dooce
!!!) but I will say that the 1st week has been great and I'm looking forward to long career with this company. Plus I have cut my commute down from 90 minutes to 20. Oh yeah and I got a huge raise. Go me!
#3: I got new hard wood floors put into my ENTIRE house last week and I am in love. Everyday this week, whenever I get home from work, I tell Guy #6 about how much I love my new commute AND my new hardwood floors. Every so often, I add him to my list of things that I totally heart as well. But he always manages to get himself taken off that list just as soon as I add him on. ;-)
#4: Guy #6 and I had a lengthy, and quite productive, discussion about our money and budget last night. Made me feel good about our future and good about the fact that he is finally
starting to act like a grown up. I guess that turning 30 actually did make an impact on him. (He joined the 30-something club early last month.)
#5: Plans for this weekend include going to see Kid Rock (with Rev Run) on Saturday, going to Papas on the Lake (one of our favorite ice houses) for some fun and beer on Sunday. Tonight we are going to meet up with a friend who is going to propose to his girlfriend TONIGHT. He invited close friends to witness the occasion. She just thinks we're all getting together for some drinks. I can't wait to see her reaction. They make a cute couple.
OK, I guess that's it. I just wanted to record the events from this week to remind myself that life is good. The Widow is indeed Merry.
