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!

Glad you are feeling better, Shirl. Politics and politicians can be extremely frustrating.

You must have really been pretty sick to be out of work for so long. Glad you're better now.

Thanks for the well wishes! I had the stomach flu according to the doctor, and it can sometimes take a week to get through it, I guess. Ugh.

Say, do you know the difference between swine flu and bird flu? One calls for a tweetment, the other for an oinkment.
