Back In The Saddle

Made it through a full five day work week! It's hard to get back into work routines after having been out for 4.5 days with the flu, but the boss was kind and things are getting caught up now.

I work for a heating and air conditioning company. October is our busy season. Michigan is still struggling out of the recession (and our goofy legislature/governor are fighting about budgets, leaving things in more turmoil) but there are a lot of incentives right now to buy high-efficiency furnaces, so our days are busy.

As to the budget mess, the year was up in October. They shut down government for a couple hours, then put a temporary budget in place. They've had all month to make adjustments. Do we have a budget yet? Nope. They all should be ashamed. Sheesh. I love Michigan, and I can weather economic crises, but I don't care for our politicians!

Swiping from Roscoe again.

Your Best Trait is Friendliness

You enjoy the company of others, whether you're at work or at play.

You believe that almost everyone has something to contribute to this world, and you treat people with courtesy and respect.

You're a natural extrovert, and you have a dazzling charm that is not easily forgotten. You are good at building rapport.

You're the type of person who can meet a stranger and feel like you've bee friends for years after a few minutes.

Michigan State's Homecoming!

The bad thing about this flu bug is that I missed the MSU homecoming parade last night. Dang! I'm keeping track of the football game here.

I had hoped to grow LARGE pumpkins this year, but that didn't turn out. However, I may have succeeded in growing the tiniest pumpkin!

Been a long time since we've done a quiz here!

Spotted at Roscoe's.

You Are Warm Apple Cider

You love to feel warm and full. You love all the small comforts that come with fall.

Unlike most people, you are as active in fall as you are in the summer. You just make sure and keep warm.

For you, fall is the perfect time of year to visit cafes or go for long walks. The season makes you feel energized.

You love the bustle of everyone being back from the summer vacation and back to work.
