>The e-mail came from the big boss and I submitted my application. I indicated what day I wanted and I have already figured out the train schedule. Now I just have to wait and see if it is approved. I will be so happy is I only have to work 9 days a pay period.

Today was allergy shot day. My arm is sore, but I got more reading time! I took Tylenol® so I should sleep ok. If I ever get to bed that is. I also went to the gym after my shot. Yay for me. Then I came home and took Gwen to DD so she could take a picture of the sign. For school, of course. She is getting very inventive at fulfilling her assignments. She needed one of the boys to download the picture to the computer though. Still not that technologically savvy.

I hate having such short posts, but I can’t think of anything else to say.

>I urgently needed a few days off work, But, I knew the Boss would not allow me to take leave. I thought that maybe if I acted ‘Crazy’ then he would tell me to take a few days off. So, I hung upside-down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker asked me what I was doing. I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb, so that the Boss might think I was ‘Crazy’ and give me a few days off.

A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, ‘What in the name of our good Lord are you doing?’ I told him I was a light bulb. He said, ‘You are clearly stressed out. “Go home and recuperate for a couple of days.”

I jumped down and walked out of the office… When my co-worker followed me, the Boss asked her, “…And where do you think you’re going?!”

(You’re gonna love this….)

She said, “I’m going home too… I can’t work in the dark.”

I e-mailed this to a co-worker and got this reply back.

Thank you…you funny princess just what I needed…starting laughing so uncontrollably that my boss came out of his office and told me to go home because he believed that I was suffering from MMBS syndrome, otherwise known and Monday Morning Blues Syndrome and it is known to be contagious so he sent me home. I will see you on Tuesday.

Your work is done here!
