Terribly amused by sheep
Today was a lazy, bad day at work. Not bad in itself, but a day in which I really, really wanted to be at home, in bed, in the jammies with a large mug of hot chocolate and my family.

Instead, our campus didn't close and I am at work, knowing that I am going to be walking out into the snow/sleet in a few moments. YUCK!

So how did I retaliate? By not doing much of anything today. No one was in...so I am afraid I was a terrible employee and did a whole lot of nothing. I will make up for it by being the world's best employee tomorrow!

Meanwhile...I downloaded some of those cute little sheep that run around your computer screen while you work. I love it when they get zapped by aliens, and I love it when one becomes a fireball and has to fly across the screen to the bathtub. But most especially, I love when they fall asleep and you take your cursor and "wake" them up...and they startle.

Okay. I am bored.

And exactly where might one find these amusing little sheep that keep us occupied while we er, um, work? I, too, find myself watching the clock, dreaming of WIPs and UFOs, transplanting daisies, roses, daffodils inbetixed the customers, bookkeeping and phone answering.... Terrible, but true, I'll try to be a better "Gopher and Pencilpusher" tomorrow....

I understand- most of my "bad days" are just bad because I would rather be at home in my sweats with a cup of tea and my knitting. I can handle actual bad days, but it's worse when you just want to be at home.
Those sheep sound adorable- where did you find them?

Wow - that must be one hell of a sized bed to get all your family in AND a cup of chocolate as well!

Mind you ....I have heard everything's big in the States.

Hubby told me this morning, at the shop, check our lotto numbers... okay, said that if he won the 260something million, he'd take it as an annuity...:yadda: :yadda: :yadda:

I told him if he won 1 million, he'd be looking for a new secretary!

I gotta go to work in the morning

Our family is just dh, me and our 4 year old dd. No pets. We bought a queen size bed this year, and I have to tell you that I LOVE that thing. Dh and I slept in a full size bed for the first 9 1/2 years of our marriage...so the queen bed is like an island to us now. Dh's feet don't hang off the end of the bed anymore!
