Well, I hope that no one thought I dropped off the face of the earth. I have been at home sick for the past two days- not just feeling lousy, but full blown sick. I could have handled the attack of the throat flem at night, the dry coughing fits, even the throwing up, but it was the fever that really got to me. Except for the fact that I puked inside my car on the way to work this afternoon, I'm fine now and over it, ready to put it into the past.
My weekend was great. I had fun at the home of Lubie and family on Saturday afternoon and evening. She and I have the same tastes in music which was good to find, and her family is very nice. She also loves the drums. Cool. They have a very nice home, the kind in which you feel immediately comfortable. I like that. And visiting with DeleteMe was fun as usual. We get along well. We all had a good time, especially drinking and playing a game called Dirty Minds.
Sunday I slept in until about 1:00, and didn't do much except hang around the house and watch football until time to go to dinner at Beni Hana's. Sorry if I offend anyone, but I'm not an Eagles fan. I am glad they lost to the Cardinals. My son, daughter and her boyfriend were a bit upset with me for feeling that way. They'll get over it. It's just football. Anyway, dinner was excellent and we all had a decent evening, even with six of us crammed into the ex's Rogue for the half-hour trip there and back.
Tonight there is no work, and there will probably be none for the next two days. Apparently there has been very little the last two days. There is a good reason. Every year the Japanese take a week off in December for some holiday, and since shipments take about 26 days to get across the ocean to us, plus five days on the rails across the US, the effects of their shut down hits us a month later. So this must be it. All of my people are off working in other departments. The next two days many of them will even be working on a different shift. I will be here, at night, doing whatever there is for me to do and getting paid.
Well, back to the paperwork I'm trying to catch up on...
