I know I must be getting old when...  
...it isn't even a night out with friends anymore that makes me feel like I'm moving in slow motion the next day, but just a long night on the internet. :P In my defense, I was pretty hyped from the Tonys and was up reading theatre message boards and starryeyed113's great, LONG, incredibly hilarious account of last night's awards show... :) It seemed like when I was in school I could for go days on just a few hours of sleep... Getting old sucks... :(

In semi-shocking work news: my co-worker quit her job today. It wasn't totally unexpected, since she was worried about her future with the company for some time now. She met with my big boss this morning, didn't care for what he had to tell her, and decided to move on. Granted, she was only a temporary replacement for the real third in our office, but after two months, I was beginning to grow quite fond of her. I'm sorry to see her go - and I feel for her, but I know there are better opportunity for her elsewhere.

What else? Oh yeah my "swollen toe story":

I've been hobbling around the office today like a little invalid due to an infected big toe... Yeah this is probably going to border a little bit on the "too much information" side, but what the heck... For some reason, my big toe on my left foot is prone to getting in-grown toenails (yes, a pleasant thing to read in someone's journal, I know). Usually it isn't so bad and given some time and a few band aids and it goes away rather quickly - however, this time it had gotten swollen overnight and this morning I was faced with the dilemma of not being able to wear my work shoes. :( But being the late sort of person I am, I had no other choice but to shove my swollen toe into my shoe and head off to work. :P

And I know I've said that I don't get any exercise at all at work, but I never realized (until today) how much I really do walk around. At one point during the day my toe was so sore that I began emailing my boss - who's in the office right next to me - all his phone messages. :P I've decided that if the swelling doesn't go down tonight, I'm going to have to see a doctor. :(

In happier, less painful news, the trades are back and weather here is actually tolerable again. :) I just hope it stays this way through the weekend. Which reminds me, Mark has Wednesday off (I think it's Kam Day? Or Kuhio Day? I can't remember which) In any case, it's a state holiday that we at the bank don't get anymore... figures... :(

Thanks Carrie. :) It's much better today - I think I can wear shoes and actually walk around my office today! :) Imagine how surprised my boss will be when I actually HAND him his phone messages? :) Take care. *hugs* back!

True enough. And that's certainly a valid question :) - but I think it ultimately depends on the circumstances under which they leave... Unfortunately in the case of my co-worker, the fact that she was in our office to begin with was a "probation" in itself. I really felt for her, though. She worked really hard when she was with us and really wanted to stay with the company. I hope things work out for her wherever she chooses to go - because she is very talented at what she does.

I'm just a girl in the world...: Boxing Glovesi_am_angieface on June 10th, 2003 06:53 am (UTC)
Ohhhh ingrown toenails hurt SO bad!!!!! OUCHIE!

Just try not to wait too long if you do have to go to the doctor - cause they get much more painful. Yuck!

Hope it goes away soon!!!

Thank you for your nice wishes! :) It feels worlds better today and I think I might not even be hobbling around at work and can actually deliver my messages in person today. :) Thanks again for your nice thoughts! Hope your day is great. :)

Thanks for the props there in that post! lol...I just slept for 16 hours so I think my staying up all night is catching up to me. :) That really sucks about the big toe...when I worked at a library over the past year I once had a broken toe and instead of putting me in the office to sit down and work, they put me upstairs shelving books for hours on end!! Grr - hope your toe feels better!

Re: Thanks!
Thanks Lauren! Glad to hear you got to catch up on all of your sleep! Thanks for your well wishes - they must've worked because I'm feeling MUCH better this morning. :)

Yikes, I hope your toe is better soon!

Thanks, Amanda. It's much better - in fact I could actually walk around today in work shoes. :)
