Well, the afternoon didn't get much better...workwise anyway.

Not long after my last post I decided to go back downstairs and check to see if the work was done or not...and not only did I find that it wasn't done yet, they had all gone home!!!!!! Without. A. Word. I sat on my hands all afternoon waiting on them and when they got ready to go home, they went! I have never been so livid in my life. Sure...I can understand their day was over and it was time for them to go home, but so was mine and I was waiting on them and they didn't even have the courtesy to give me a call and let me know that they weren't going to finish it - NO. THEY JUST LEFT! I don't have a clue how long they left before I went downstairs either.

I checked all over the place to make sure she wasn't in someone else's office and I even asked her boss - he thought she had gone home for the day, which it turns out he was right.

So...I had decided that I was just going to have to go into work tomorrow, which really aggravated me, but she doesn't come in until about an hour and a half after me...so I thought I could just have her call me when she made it in...then I just decided heck no! It's my Friday off...I have plans made for the day...she can take care of it. So...I did what I could to get my work into the system, left a voice mail about what stage I was at, and asked that when she finished her side she could just transfer mine in!! I did leave my cell phone number in case it didn't go through smoothly she could call me and I could come finish it. I'll probably end up calling her about nine in the morning anyway to check on the status and will have to go take care of it myself anyway.

I know she and her group are just as busy and that's fine...but the fact that I was down there around 4:00 and was told, "I'll call you when it's done..." and within two hours she just left without even the professional courtesy to call me and let me know when she knew I was waiting on her made me livid!

So...after some brief venting I left and by the time I came home my red face was just a pale pink! Michael was outside watering the grass when I got home and our neighbors were heading out to dinner and asked us to go, so we took off. After a nice dinner we came home and the guys went inside and us two gals decided to go for a walk. I think we're going to start walking in the evenings. Not on Mondays b/c I have class, but maybe the other four weekdays. I felt so great after we got back...we stretched for a little bit and then headed inside! We really did luck out with our neighbors. Everyone we have met that lives around us is so nice and the two we went to dinner with are close to our age, newlyweds, in their first house just like us. We have a lot in common with them and get along really well. Michael and he are into a lot of the same things - hunting, fishing, softball, & now working in the yard! She likes to scrapbook and loves to talk! They are really great! I look forward to building friendships with everyone that lives around us.

Hah...my fingers are swollen. I guess from walking or the humidity, but my rings are stuck!!! LOL - oh well, maybe if I keep up the walking they'll get too lose b/c I'll lose weight and then just fit when they swell!!!
