A Long Work Day...

Marilyn and I were at work by 9:00, then went to Starbucks with the new hire and several others (our traditional for the first day of all new staff).

After that we had Staff Meeting. Updates and discussion of the Golden Globes. As a special events organization, we discuss we recent events. We were talking about the logistics of the various women wearing black to this event and their focus for talking points...

We have our Communications Team meeting after that, but I skipped it to be able to start training. Normally I won't stay for the full Staff Meeting on a training day. It was past 11:00 before Sophia and I got started, anyway.

We trained until nearly 1:00, then I gave her a lunch break.

Marilyn was headed for her daily walk (the ONLY break she takes), so I joined her. We walked and talked for around half an hour on the waterfront.

Then Jessica and I walked to the Turkey Place (and back) to get some lunch.

After that I ate part of a sandwich and went back to training Sophia. This went very well -- she's a smart woman. I was impressed.

We finally finished in the afternoon and I went upstairs to my desk to work until time to leave for Court Orientation. We were departing between 4:30 and 5:00 -- it's a bear getting around during rush hour traffic.

We got to the hospital where it's held and helped with setup, then walked out for more Starbucks. It was an UPHILL climb and we were joking and laughing.

Then was the orientation for the girls. It's lengthy.

When it finally ended we headed home. It was around 8:00. We were home by around 8:30.

We ate peanut butter when we got home...

Sue phoned, and Marilyn reminded her about the doctor appointment in the morning.

We did a few things, then went down for a nap. Marilyn woke me to get ready for bed later.

And that was our day!

Except that BOTH of us got well over 10,000 steps during the day walking!!! Without needing to do the treadmill. (woo hoo)

It's the middle of the night and I can't sleep, so I'm adding this blog entry. I have swollen feet (no idea why) and they're painful. Oh!!! Forgot to mention setting up a doctor appointment for me. It's for next Monday, at 10:30. Staff has Monday off, thankfully.

I have red splotches all over both forearms and yesterday these were bleeding on one arm. They look awful. I've been nauseous and having dizzy spells. So we want it checked out.

That's my day! More tomorrow.

(Just discovered this DID NOT POST last night. Damn. Posting it now...)
