Crusoe continues to progress... I'm halfway through the heel flap. It will be done by the time I go to bed, and perhaps the heel turn completed as well. At this point I would ideally want to get the gusset stitches picked up before stopping for the night, but I'm not going to push myself. I won't get much (if any) knitting done tomorrow night, since I'm going to my bunko group. Saturday is sewing day with my girlfriends. More on that in Friday's post.
My boss... I've mentioned him before. Today, he asks me (out of the blue) if I thought we (the three billing clerks) could move some stuff out of our 3 cubicles and make room if we needed to (he has an office). I'm like, make room for what? He said that "some people" had noticed our 3 cubicles were "pretty spacious". Um... we've been in that area since the first of August. So I just pointed out that if we moved the file cabinets out, it would use the same amount of space for them to be somewhere else, while forcing us to work less efficiently. We each have our own files in our cubes so we can easily pull files when there are questions about orders and shipments. We don't have to leave our cubes to go file in a central file area (which we can't watch over 24/7) therefore we can stay by our phones and not miss calls (and we are all 3 on the phone with co-workers at the plant and at headquarters all day long). One of the girls has 6 printers in her cubicle - two are big huge monsters that print vinyl labels for drums and other containers. Seriously, you cannot lift them - it takes two guys - they have several feed trays and get HOT. She also has a separate set-up to ship Fedex packages which entails a computer & monitor and 3 more printers. It also requires a phone line drop which we waited till the end of September to get installed. He thinks we could move that "somewhere else" too. I'm wondering what he's up to. We don't have any other people in our group. Whether we consolidate files into a cubicle and make ours smaller, or leave everything where it is, it will take the same amount of space. I don't get where he's going with this, but something seems to be up.
I had to make a quick run to the grocery tonight for some lunch fixings and a bag of dry dog food. Our dogs usually eat prescription food from the vet (Science Diet W/D) but I ran out yesterday and I worked late tonight. Joe was busy too, and so the dogs were out of dry food. Joe can stop by the vet's office and get a bag of food tomorrow.
Anyway, I got sidetracked - while I was unloading my groceries in the kitchen, the tip of one of my acrylic nails popped off. Before I could even pick it up (because could glue it back on, I've done it before) that danged Goofy ate it right off the floor! Aaaargggghhh.
