Lots of walking today - about 5 miles. I walked down to the laundromat and back, then down to the train station, and then from my stop to work. Whew! Stopped in the the Walgreens by the laundromat and bought a TransLink card. I put $5 on it to test it, but I will have to take my commuter checks to Walgreens to load it when I get more. Unfortunately, high value BART tickets are only available using autoload online, so I am out of luck saving money on that. :(

I'll weigh-in on Sunday, but I haven't lost any weight this week over the same time last week so I have a feeling it will be depressing.


Now for a rant:

I hate my boss! All he ever does is chew me out. Yesterday he accused me of being "lazy" and not doing my job. Why? Because the ALX system is very complicated and I remembered all but one part (a part I had never run into before). The fact that this little factoid that I needed to know isn't in the almighty "book" (a huge binder that I am supposed to memorize) escapes him.

Boss J is in the Air Force Reserves and treats our department like an Air Force boot camp. There is no such thing as forgiveness with him. He doesn't even know the word. He has stated (in so many words) that "sorry" means nothing.

He is not manager material. He left yesterday for three weeks away which will leave us to do our job without being berated - thank God! I should have just called Brad with my question yesterday. Brad is always very helpful and doesn't chew me out. J refuses to answer questions! He also wants everything logged, and important issues have to be logged in triplicate.

He doesn't do his job and thinks he can do ours better than we can. :-p

OY. Don't get me started on bosses. Sometimes I wonder how on earth people are able to get into a position of authority, it is way too often abused.

Hey, Sis. Susan and I just swung by.

Sounds like a truly nasty situation. We'll be praying for you.

Prayers on the thyroid situation as well. My grandmother had her thyroid removed and it really messed up her emotions. Unpleasant thing to happen to such a lovely lady.
