Eerie Office Quietness

Hello My Friends,

Is it as gray and chilly by you as it is me?  My entire commute to work was a horror show, due to the extreme downpour that ensued as soon as I pulled out of my driveway.  Sad smile  At one point I thought that I was going to have to pull over and wait it out.  Fortunately, just when I was making my decision the rain began to slow down and I managed to drive all the way through.

It seemed that there were a number of commuters who most definitely should have pulled over during their ride.  There were quite a few accidents along my route, including a 4 car accident that held me up for a while.  You know how much I hate traffic, right?  Errr….  No matter how annoyed I am with traffic, whenever I see an accident the only thing I think about are wishes that everyone involved is ok.  After the two accidents I had last year, within a month of each other to boot, I know how scary, frustrating and upsetting it can be.

I took my time, enjoying my freshly brewed coffee and listening to my favorite morning show.  Other than the traffic (and the fact that I was driving to work and not someplace more fun) I was in a pretty pleasant mood.  I had even allowed myself to sleep in this morning and skip the gym, because I’ve been SO tired lately and my body needed a rest.  With ample sleep and a belly full of coffee I eventually made it to the office, safe and sound. Smile

The office became unusually quiet by the end of the day yesterday.  If you only knew how crazy it usually is in that place you’d know the quiet can be quite eerie.  That same quietness seems to have trickled into today.  Others have actually come to my desk to comment on it.  It’s really quite strange, but I’m not going to complain knowing that next week is going to be absolutely nuts with meetings and travel planning.  I’ll take advantage while I can!

I’ve been thinking of some things that I’d like to share with you.  Hopefully, I’ll have some time this weekend to write them out the way that I’d like.  I feel like I’m always rushing to post and don’t get as much time as I’d like to look things over and add well-rounded content.

Currently there’s no internet access available where I’m blogging from, so I’m unable to reply to some comments that I saw yesterday. I promise to get back to you ASAP and think there might even be a post stemming off of one of the questions I received. Smile

I was also looking forward to reading some of my favorite blogs, but that obviously isn’t an option either.  Boo!  The good news is I remembered to bring my kindle with me and I’m going to spend the remainder of my break immersing myself in another world.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love to read?  It’s always been one of my favorite things to do.  Unfortunately, as I’ve gotten older I’ve had less time for it.  I’m working on that though.  It’s one of my goals this year, remember?

Other than that, not too much else to report.  I’m not sure when the internet will be back up so I can actually post this, but I wanted to be sure to stop in and say hello before the day got away from me.  I hope this finds you well and that this week ends on a high point for you.  I’m getting ready to do my Friday Morning Happy Dance…..only about 16 more hours to go. Winking smile

Anything unusual happening at your office today?
