A case of the Mondays

I've been dreading today all weekend long, thanks to The Hag. Just when I was starting to mellow out about my job, not get overly stressed every morning as I'm getting ready for work, stop hoping to get sick so I don't have to come in for a couple of days, something like that has to happen. Oh, and I am getting sick too! Unfortunately not sick enough to stay home (yet). It's just a cold, and I plan to beat it into submission with echinacea and EmergenC.

My weekend was fairly calm. Friday was fun - hubs and I went out for dinner with another couple then met up with a handful more friends for drinks afterwards. It was a good time, and I'm slowly but surely getting a little closer to some of the people in that group. I got my hair cut on Saturday (it falls just below the jaw now, I'll have to take a pic soon), after which we just relaxed at home. Sunday was new front door day! Hubs's dad came over to install it and decided he wanted to get some practice first, so he installed the entry door on the garage too. Sweet! The front door still needs the trim put back on, but it's in and operable! I'm going to try to paint it on Saturday so it's all done by the time hubs gets back from his trip with the guys on Sunday. I took a picture of the old door before the guys pulled it out, so I'll post that and an "after" photo once it's totally done. Already it's such a huge difference, though. (Even with the blue painter's tape covering the gaps.) Almost like a real house. :)

While the doors were getting put in, I was on cat-patrol to make sure Atticus didn't escape. So pretty much I spent all day watching TV and surfing the web. On one of my many FB logins I discovered that I have another IF buddy - a girl I used to hang out with a few years ago, friend of a (no longer) friend kinda thing. We've been FB friends for a while, and of course I'd realized that she and her husband, who got married the same month as hubs and I, still don't have kids. I wasn't sure whether that was by choice or thanks to Mother Nature though. Not that I wish IF on anyone, it's just nice to know that I'm not alone in real life.

Well, time to get some work done I suppose. Have a simply smashing Monday, all!

Monday's suck! I am so sorry you are sick. I hope your cold doesn't morph into what I have got (some horrible strain of Ebola, I think....lol).

That's great news about the door. Doesn't it feel nice to get stuff done like that? Good for you!

I hope your day starts looking up.

Mondays suck! I hope the Hag had enough work to do that she left you alone.

Can't wait to see the new door! Have I mentioned that I LOVE a good project?
