Just a Thank You Please

It must be really difficult for people to say thank you, job well done. Work has not been a lot of fun as of late. I am doing my work, plus someone else's workload because she is not the brightest bulb in the tanning bed. Most days I'm not getting home until almost 2200. It blows. I have a schedule for my sleep time. I need only four hours, but they have to be in the right section of the day or I am not rested. I don't mind the work. Actually, I quite enjoy it if truth be told. All I would really ask for is a simple Thank You.
At the moment, I'm getting a:
Why isn't this done yet?
Are you sure that will be ready?
Do you think we should call so and so to do this?
Can you do this as well that please?
My response today was unfortunately, not a nice one. It went something like:
It is not completed yet because 2nd in command has demanded this; So and so has demanded this; and you have asked for that. I can finish all these tasks, however not in an instant. So....Please, I ask you, back the fuck up.
Yep. I dropped the F bomb. Not my proudest moment. I am still ashamed by its use. It was however, effective. I was left alone for an hour to complete all the above tasks.
Now that wasn't so hard was it?

On the lighter side, I did find this time waster a few minutes ago:
Who's Alive and Who's Dead?
I know I am not the only morbid one out there. Hope you all enjoy this as much as I have tonight.
Have a great night everyone. The week-end is only hours away.

A New Week

I get very stressed this time of year. At this juncture, I map and assign all the new school routes for the drivers. We acquired some of these routes very late in the game. As a result, I stayed very late on Friday. I even met (scared) the security guard that is posted in our yard to ward off vandals. When I finally arrived home, I was actually dizzy. I hate that feeling. To reward myself for being such a "team player", we went shopping!!! I found some very awesome boots and shoes.

I can't wait until fall so I can wear these babies:

Looking a little dominatrix no? hehe.

I'm thinking of wearing these tomorrow:

I love my foot wear to be a different ilk from other people's. Why wear the same style of shoe? That the joy of people. We are all so very different. I love to reflect this in my clothing and hair. That's why every once in a while, I have blue, green, sometimes purple hair. Its fun. I enjoy it. No one gets hurt.

I noticed that when I'm not quite right, neither are the cats. I've been lazing around all weekend. So have they:

Napoleon just sort of collapsed after he had his kibble.

Rebel was maintaining his battle station, but quickly became tuckered out.

Poor little fellows, they are not used to 13 hour shifts.

I've also been working on my Rattlesnake Creek Socks. For this one, I have about two more inches, then I complete the toe. Now that I am more familiar with the pattern, the second should move more smoothly. I had a difficult time trying to figure out how to do the foot. I didn't need to continue the pattern along the sole, but I had no clue how to make a transition from instep to sole without it looking odd. Two tries later, I have this:

Tomorrow is our big start-up meeting. I'm going to read a few pages in my book and hope that settles me down enough to sleep.
Good night everyone.
