Is it the weekend yet???

Well, yesterday sucked...big time. You know, it was the whole Administrative Professionals Day and let's face it, there's not a whole lot positive to be said of being an AA. Or as some old timers still think of it, or people who just want to make you feel crappy about yourself - a secretary. Thank you very much, but I did not go to college and get my bachelor's degree to be a secretary - I have a brain but it's not my fault if you don't utilize it. I can do so much more than type, file and 'make things pretty.'

But, I digress...

Why was the day so awful??? I mean, the sun was shining for the first time this week, the weather was great!

I had one of the nice folks that I work with come in with a lovely card and a gift card to B&N and she said that she thought I might would like a new knitting book...maybe something by Debbie Macomber...wasn't that sweet? I thought so. Completely unexpected but very much appreciated.

Another one of the ladies that I work with came in with a very nice card and a gift card to Starbucks so I can get my coffee - a nice treat for me. That was again unexpected but very sweet and appreciated.

The Big Boss comes in...doesn't say hello...doesn't speak to me...AT ALL...ALL DAY LONG! Spoke to someone standing at my desk and basically looked straight thru me as if I am invisible...honestly...I mean, PLEASE? I know that I've lost weight but there's still plenty of me to see, I promise you that. I keep trying to tell myself that it doesn't matter...that maybe she forgot, felt like crap, and didn't know how to make it better...but that doesn't help at all.

I need to win the MegaMillions tomorrow night...$71 Million...I could live on that!

Oh well, at least I know that the folks that I care about care about me and that's a nice feeling.

And at least last night was Knit Night at Panera so the day ended on a very positive and happy note. Knitting has been happening on the Toe-Up Monkey socks and they are coming right along. The heel has been turned on one and the other is ready for the heel. I love the colorway and I like the way the pattern is coming. Pictures tomorrow, maybe...

And that is that...today is another day...and it's another beautiful one outside. I will go home and go for a run, relax and then settle in for knitting and BRAND NEW GREY'S ANATOMY!!!!! All I can say is, it's about time!!!

Yeah, we need Admin Revolt Day. Then they will remember who really runs the office.
