7 Quick Takes # 13

Today is Chris's birthday and we both had to work. He went in early so he'll be off early so he can go hunting tomorrow and because of vacations/drill schedules, I had to work my normal 3 to 11. I'm not complaining though because a) steady employment for us both and b) I gave him his present before my birthday and all he's going to do when he gets home is gather his stuff for tomorrow, shower and go to bed early.

The weather has been hot and humid the past few days. Tonight, it's supposed to thunderstorm and over the weekend the lows are supposed to be in the 40s. I will take it because I'm tired as I can be of summer. I'm ready for some real autumn weather. 

Work has been a mix of busy and slow and I know I shouldn't complain about it because while it's slow right now I have the opportunity to do some things that I don't normally get to do. It will get busy again soon and I won't be able to take a full breath without someone interrupting me and I'll be wishing it was slow. It's a never ending cycle.

My 5 year anniversary at work is coming up soon (even though I took 4 months off, the time still carries so my 5 year anniversary is a few weeks.) This is the longest I have ever been in one place that paid me to work since staying at home is wonderful but unpaid in the monetary department.

I stopped by the library this week and loaded up on reading materials because I'm finding myself picking up books instead of electronics whenever I have a few spare moments. I'm absolutely happy about that because I miss reading when I'm not doing much of it.

I'm also doing a bit more writing than I have been. Maybe some of it will make it's way here instead of just in my notebook.

I got my truck back. It looks better than the picture I posted the other day because Chris sent me that picture while they were still working on it. I am very happy to have it back and not crushed and running. I think, though, that I may save up some money and get a paint job first of next year. I'm thinking black?
