So I know it’s been a while since I’ve written. Oh, I posted a story today; it’s been a while since I did that, too. It’s technically stand-alone, but I’m thinking of tying it in with Shane and Colton. Could make for a very interesting case. Anyway, I’ve been a slacker this week, I know. Been tired when I got home and just wanted to sit and watch stupid stuff on YouTube. Also been chatting with folks on Grindr; it’s a way to meet people, and out this far, meeting people is good.
I woke up Saturday—can’t remember why specifically now—and checked my phone and was immediately pissed off; the project manager I work with who infuriates me sent an email out around 5:45 in the morning on Saturday about an issue one of our customers is having with a build we released. I replied back, and we went back and forth a bit before I finally asked if this was something that needed to be done over the weekend.
I got to thinking about it, and I realized something: there is no requirement where I work that I have my work email on my phone, and multiple times last week I woke up to be immediately pissed off by work emails (mostly from this particular individual). I had a sudden epiphany: just take work email off your phone! It was a brilliant idea, and it has been so nice this week not waking up to being immediately pissed off. Admittedly, I am going to have to work on my attitude. I don’t know what to do specifically, but I have got to get to the point where everything this guy says doesn’t instantly set my hackles on edge. But for now, waking up and not having to look at emails is really nice.
Another thing occurred to me about the same time: the concept of emergencies. There’ll be a blog post on this shortly. Stay tuned.
In other news, the grass seed is spread, and we’ve had two days of nice, slow rain (hate driving in it, but it’s great for the grass), but still no seedlings. Hurry up, guys; I hate looking at yellow grass. It makes sad. Let my hay guy know I’m gonna need a bale this weekend, so at least the animals will be well-fed.
Not much else going on. Don’t think I’m gonna be able to pay off the truck with the extra paycheck this month, though. Rats. Ah, well…it’ll come one day…
