It is cool compared to recent days,and rainy. I have done very little...smoked a pork butt so we can have loaded baked potatoes tonight for dinner,and washed dishes. I haven't even changed out of my sleeping shorts and really don't intend to either. Sometimes it is nice to have a do nothing day.

LOL. Sorry guys. I've been calling this workweek a week of captivity since my vacation starts at 3:30pm today. The cats also feel like they are in captivity, but theirs is just beginning. LOL. They're pretty independent so they're stuck at the house all week next week without us. Oh the havoc they will probably cause.. haha.


Today's the last day! We are NOT packed, BUT.. I do have a large stack selected for final drafting when I get home. :)

I think it's the cats that are in captivity for a week do some reason?

Glad I have begun the weekend. There doesn't appear to be hardly anything at the fall swap meet so far though...

Day 3 of captivity wasn't too awful bad. Work was busy, but okay. We finally got our birthday and attendance bulletin boards up all the way at church last night.


Day 4 of captivity.. while it isn't over (which is terrifying).. it's going VERY fast. I get here an hour early every day since I'm car pooling with Jeremy, and I looked up.. it was already lunch time - 4 hours later. LOL. I've been training a girl to do payroll while I'm gone next week. Most has gone well, but hiccups that are better NOW than next week for sure! :) We almost had our vacation cancelled today by Jeremy's work. One of his fellow carriers' dad passed away today and she is off work for a few days, and another one's dad is about to pass. Another coworker should've been fired a long time ago for threatening violence against his coworkers, showing up to work hungover (smelling of alcohol as well), and just generally being completely foolish and uncooperative with his coworkers/superiors.. He's suddenly developed appointments all the time now. SO.. They tried to get Jeremy to come in anyway, but ... we have plane tickets that are nonrefundable. So.. If they push the issue, I'm pushing for reimbursement. LOL. You DO get paid well when they mandate you off your vacation, but boy will HE be cranky.. even more so than I would be, LOL. Hopefully they're able to get things covered for a few days so we don't have to miss our vacation.

Cats are doing better. Still hating our not-all-the-way-done remodel job in their room, but living through it. I'm going to get a couple of rugs and some extra litter boxes so they'll feel a little more at home. Maybe a couple of extra toys. :) Catnip seems to really be working on the boy cat lately. He's quite entertaining.

Well. You are all wrong. In this case, "S.O." refers to "Sheriff's Office".
And it was a long day yesterday. In my folly, I went in about an hour early, thinking to get a jump on the day. I had no way of knowing that my day would run long....
Long story short, my coworker had a very bad dude on her caseload. He violated his conditions of release, and we tracked him down. He went to jail, eventually, and I got to remember what it is like to be a "real" cop.
The downside is , it was nearly 7 pm before I left work. I was late to church (almost didn't make it), and finally got home about 14 hours after I'd left for the day.
I'm totally bailing early today. And I'm off tomorrow.

Quote from: Roscoe on September 18, 2018, 11:51:00 PMMe too. The jeep is fixed, though. And before I can do much as sit down good, the s.o. calls me. They've arrested one of my repeat offenders that just wont learn. More paperwork  for tomorrow...
 And I guess I should be flattered.  My boss informed me that they had hired someone for my office. Unusual because we didn't sit in on the interview.  She texted me that he "is a good guy, a country boy you will like, and I want you  to train him because he is going to be a good one"
I'm gonna take that as a compliment,  despite the extra work it means.
What does s.o. stand for in this context?

Quote from: The Purple Fuzzy on September 20, 2018, 10:50:12 AMMy mind inserted senior officer. So I'm curious of the answer.

My mind inserted Significant Other....

:eek!:
