Took the day off work today because I have a million things to do and not enough time to do it all. Yet there is always time to blog somehow.
Had a nice day at work yesterday. The boss took his entire team out for breakfast and brought along our big cheez boss and her admin assistant. First time I've ever had a manager do this. And given that they receive performance bonuses - just to show up it seems to most of us - it was a nice gesture. I think this guy wants to be liked. WhatEv. One of my team asked me if we should do something for him. I am not a fan of buying gifts for the boss - myself included and I told her - no we don't need to do anything for him except our jobs. NO need to spend money on a guy who makes $15K more than me AND an annual pretty much guaranteed bonus. Love the way government functions. I also told her I do not want or need my employees buying me anything either. Same reasons minus the bonus.
But I digress. Today's to dos includes:
``Mail the frozen perogies to the nephew college student to fortify himself through exams.
``Mail the other care package to the other friend - it might show up before Christmas.
``Finish the course design on the marketing course.
``Get the Christmas cards into envelopes and out the door.
``Attend the first in five orientation sessions for new teachers at the college where Ill be teaching in January.
``Attend the Christmas Staff Board lunch at the Gymnastics Centre.
Full day gotta run
