UGH - must be my old age...  
...I ache all over. :P Serves me right for skipping out on Curves for an entire month, I guess. :P I did go back today and majorly sucked wind. I plan to go with more regularity since I now realize what a chore it is to get back into shape after a month of slacking off. :P

Work issues - I think that my little office team of three is going through some interesting times right now - Upper management has dictated that we change "roles" at our job. I used to run all the operations of the office, but now I'm being told that my major responsibility is to sell and my co-worker (who used to sell) is now being told that his main job is administrative (since he's new and needs to learn the administrative side to the business). I've been running the operations in our office now for the past 6 years so when the pending business files were taken out of my desk and I had to give up my many reports, I felt a little sad. Maybe I have control issues - I don't know. I liked knowing what was going on in the office and being the one to solve the customers problems... And to add to things - my co-worker has decided to change our system of doing things (which I really can't blame him for doing) - I feel a little sad and a little like I'm losing control. I told that to my boss (who's more of a friend to me than a boss) and he laughed and said I reminded him of his wife. :P We'll see what happens, but things are definitely different at work these days. :P

On a different note - I spent the evening watching the local Japanese station with Mark. They have some interesting "slice of life" shows about regular everyday people in Japan. It's interesting to see, but we're SO far removed from the Japanese culture that watching these shows seems so foreign. It's a strange feeling to finally see people on TV who look like us, but with whom we can't even begin to identify. :P

And I'm really glad tomorrow is Friday - it feels like the weekend should've been here long ago! I also start my web classes this Saturday and I'm really looking forward to that. :)

At least you went back to Curves so don't worry about the month of not going. ;) I'm sorry to hear about your job. It does feel like the weekend should have been here already. Have fun this weekend w/your class. :)

I'm definitely happy that I went back - but I'm certainly paying for not having gone now. :P At least once I get through with these aches and pains, it should be so much better! :) And my job is okay, I think it'll just take some getting used to for me. :P Hope you have a nice weekend too! :)

Woo Hoo - keep goin... after the first few times it should be easier. :-) I wanna go back... darn this ankle!

Sorry about your work... that would upset me - having to all of a sudden switch what I do - especially if it was sales.... I dont like sales!!!

You're exactly right, Angie. This is the hard part - actually the hard part might be keeping motivated so that this doesn't happen to me again. :P Hope your ankle is feeling better! :(

I don't particularly like sales either. But I enjoy meeting customers and it really makes me feel good when I feel that I've helped them plan for their future... so it's not too bad. I just have a hard time letting go of all that other stuff I used to do. :P

Tom's work does that a lot - they think that everyone there should know everyone else's job.

Have a nice weekend!

In a way I guess it's good. When I used to go on vacation my in-tray would be FILLED with things to do (no one else knew how to my job) At least now we can all cover for each other. :)

Hope you have a nice weekend too - enjoy your new kitties! :)

...I ache all over.
If I stop riding just only for one week I wish I could stay in bed the day after I began it again. So it was nice to hear that the riding teacher feels in the same way. :)

I'm sorry to hear that about your work. Luckily, such a thing is not possible here; I wouldn't like it, I think.

I hope you enjoy your web classes and I wish you a nice weekend. :)

That's how I felt this morning... I just wanted to stay in bed. :P Hopefully it'll get better once I go more frequently. :)

I guess work will just take a little getting used to for me. And right now it feels that much harder because I'm also training my co-worker to do my old job. Hopefully once he feels more comfortable with it, we'll all settle into a nice team again. :)

Yes, I'm very excited about my classes! :) I think if it was offered as a major while I was going to college - I would have gone into it then... :) Hope you have a nice weekend too! :)
