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... :(
