Pardon Me While I Poke An Eye Out...

Just not like me to do anything half-arsed, doncha know? I am recovering/pretty much recovered from the major affliction of shingles...manipulated my way back to work today WITHOUT Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named blessing and a note from her minion. Hit the door of my office running straight into my yearly performance evaluation, which was one of the best evals I've ever had...just goes to show you, I have absolutely NO IDEA how I am doing at work. Spent 9 1/2 hours snapping up the phone repeatedly and triaging calls...and now, finally...at 2:00AM, I am "home". Just in time to start this process all over AGAIN tomorrow.

I did cancel my unnecessary appointment with Dr. SWWNBN for tomorrow morning at Dawn's crack...decided I didn't NEED it...I'm already back at work and I don't need no stinkin' note from her to release me! Won that battle already...moving on to the next one. I have a pseudo-type training day tomorrow with what we call "ride alongs", so I will be entertaining and "educating" someone from another part of the county to the intricacies of my job. Then on Wednesday, I have a doctor's appointment in the morning, a 3 hour meeting of the minds in the afternoon with the State Mucky-Mucks, and finish off my day with the rest of my scheduled work until nearly midnoc. On Thursday, it's another "ride along" day with a different county employee, and then one day off before working the weekend. Good thing I was able to rest at home all last week!


Yep...I might as well just poke my own eye out right now and get it over with...I think it would be less painful than the week I have planned...

Hat's off to you Ms.Cheese. When the signal fires you are off the block and running. How do you do that?? It's obvious you REALLY like your work, and the great eval proves it. Glad the shingle debachle is over and done with.
(Uhhhg,,,that picture is horrible! worse than watching a yogi clean his sinuses)

First thing in the morning--great Picture to behold. Glad you are returning to work with gusto--happy you had such a good evaluation-shows you are still a force at work even on the days you have doubts.

When I saw this, I could only think of Steve Martin in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels sitting at the table with an eye patch and a cork on the end of his fork.

"Why is the cork on the fork?" Just as "Ruprick" jabs himself on the eyepatch with the cork. :)
