Glass half full about the week-PACK RULES!!!

I really should know better not to open my work email on the weekend.  Everyone in lab tells me they stopped doing it years ago, I think I am the only one who continues to do so...this results in my boss knowing that I am accessible on the weekend.

You all know what an *awesome* hands-off kinda guy he is (read: suffocating micromanager), so of course I get his email today.  His 'suggestion' email...  Hmm, should I try saying, 'um, thanks boss, but I think I'll stick with my own plan, but thanks for the 'suggestion'!  That kind of passive aggressive BS is nauseating.


But to stick with my 'glass half full' subject line-I really do like my boss, as a person that is...He is very understanding when it comes to dealing with family stuff or sickness, and I'm sure he is a blast to be around outside of work...


Ok, I may have fibbed a bit on that last one...I KNEW I was reaching too much. ;-)


In spite of his 'suggestions', I was trying to not get bummed out before the week even started, so I decided to make a list of things I am looking forward to this week...Don't worry, this will be short. HAHA


1.  100% chance of snow on Wednesday...Really 100%?  I don't think anything is 100% in life, but hey I'm trying to be optimistic, so...


2.  We might buy a house this week-we are waiting to hear from the bank about our counteroffer.  If we get it you are all invited to a ginormous pool party this summer!  Ok, maybe not all of you. ;-)


3.  Um...I have some nice packages of small clothes expected from eBay.  I find I am gravitating towards fitted tops these days since my rollos are gone-os.


4.  Big weigh in this week-I'm expecting at least 5 pounds off from the last weigh-in on Saturday the 26th...I don't bust my butt and eat like a damn rabbit for nothing, people!


5.  All the SuperBowl stuff will be done and the fans will be gone, and our weather can get back to lovely again-except for Wednesday of course. *wink wink*


6.  The chili baby in my stomach will proceed to my intestine already...should...have...resisted...the...diet soda.  Feel like a seagull on pop rocks...  Or a coke can with bread...Or something like that.


7.  Going to casino with Mom and Grandma next Sunday, then V-day awesomeness with hubs...lots of awesomeness...multiple times...ok that's all you get there...


8.  New TV!!!  Heavy-Monday, Biggest Loser-Tuesday, Toddlers and Tiaras-Wednesday, Scared Straight-Thursday


9.  New grad school recruits come in, which is nice because it breaks up all the time that I serve as the most intimidated and terrified person in the room...


10.  Straight arm plank record-this week it is MINE, unless someone broke the 4 minutes already...


11.  THE PACK ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!  What a great start to the week!  The Lombardi Trophy goes back to Green Bay!!!

I hate with a passion bosses who are micromanagers! I don't work well with them. Let's just say, at my last job I was written up for not saying "good morning" to my manager! I and then written up again because I politely told him to piss off. Basically saying that personally I hated his guts and only wanted to deal with him on an as needed basis when it concerned work. This was MONTHS of him making me cry at my desk or docking my time for "going to the restroom too often".

Good way to be optomistic! Yay for a possible new house. Hope you post pictures!

Never personally done eBay before, but it sounds like you have a lot of goodies coming your way. Especially V-day. ;) Have fuuuu-uun with that. I know I will! Haha.

And poprocks? Ouch. Sorry about that, and the micromanaging boss.
