While I have really appreciated how quiet it is here during spring break, I’m glad that the week is over. I’ve been fighting sinus headaches all week and am super-stuffy today, so I fear it will be a down weekend for me. Yesterday’s rain washed the air clean and it is cool but sunny today- very nice! Hopefully it will warm up a little for yard work.
We did major cleaning and rearranging of workstations this week (I suspect I have have overdone things a bit, hence my tiredness, etc.). There’s a nasty bug running around the office so we disinfected about three times. The room is brighter now and seems larger! Just finished the newest round of performance appraisals for current employees and it looks like we’re finally getting their raises put through- the budget situation is still terrible. I’m fighting to offer our potential new hire a better salary as well- it would be great if I could keep someone for more than two years. *sigh*
My craft store run yesterday was successful and I have enough to finish existing projects and do one or two new ones. I’m really hoping to get the futon sofa assembled into the front bedroom so that room can be “done”. I found the most gorgeous, comfortable, snuggly, automatic recliner! For $600. Ouch. I’d link it but it does not seem to be on their website. Can you recommend a nice recliner, either electric or with the long handle, for not too much? I found a less expensive one I liked, but the seat was not quite wide enough for my hips (*ahem*) and the footrest was too short for my long legs. I’ll keep looking- I’m on a mission!
(Oh, and what’s with furniture stores having crappy or no description on their sites, and no prices? Makes it very hard to comparison shop!)
Hitting Target after work today- my work socks are dropping like flies, and hopefully I can find some comfortable(-r) work shoes. This has really been a problem for about six months now- I can’t wear moccasins all the time (but damn I wish that I could!).
