Days Go By

Can't believe it's almost been a week since I last wrote. Work has been dominating my time and thoughts, mostly because I was training some manager folk for a few days this week. Training people sucks because you have to put aside all the work that you should be doing in order to take the time to train them, and then as you're training them you're pointing out all the areas in which you aren't doing things the correct way. So when I finished training them on Wednesday I felt terribly behind and like I do nothing right.

Luckily, I was able to get a lot done yesterday and get caught up and stopped caring about whether I'm doing things right. So today I'm feeling back-to-normal.

Also from work, a few updates about Sportcoat Guy. Tom (the guy who's in charge of Loss Prevention for our district) has, by working with the state police, been able to find out Sportcoat Guy's name and address. and apparently Sportcoat Guy's last name is....wait for it....COAT. Or maybe it's Coate. Or Cote. Anyway, I think it's funny that Sportcoat Guy's real last name is Coat. Also, he was in the store the other day, but just walked in and saw me and then turned around and left.

What else? Jeannie is, at this very moment, at a job interview for Hab. for Human. This time, though, it would be a real paying gig rather than the volunteer job that she had a few years ago. So I'm excited to hear how that goes. I think she would be really good for the job, because it's a combination of being on the construction sites and also being in charge of the AmeriCorp volunteers and doing some office stuff. I think she'd enjoy it.

Also been talking with my parents about the possibility of them coming out for a visit in September. It's been awhile since they've been out, and they've never seen our current place, so I think it would be nice if they could come. We're going to try and sort out some of the logistics as soon as we find out if Jeannie's gonna have a new job or not.

Looking forward to being off work tomorrow. Get to play with my ladyfriend during the day and then it's off to drink with Bewley! (who is in town on her first visit back since moving to Chicago...)
