I've also been very busy at work. November is normally a busy time in an academic library, but it's been particularly bad lately due to lack of coverage. One co-worker in particular is absolutely ridiculous. She's out once or twice every week and gives the most ridiculous excuses. Once she called out for two days because the check engine light came on in her car. Another time she called out because she dropped her keys in the snow. And another time she called out because she claimed to have gotten whiplash from looking at an accident on her way to work. Last week, she claimed to have hurt her foot on Thursday morning. She put on a really terrible fake limp whenever she thought someone was watching her. On Friday, she called out because she claimed that her foot was in so much pain that she couldn't focus. While it's funny to hear what kind of excuse she's going to come up with next, it's irritating that I have to pick up so much of the slack. When am I supposed to blog if I have to spend the whole workday working?
Fortunately, the weekend was much better. Elizabeth and I went to see Superior Donuts, which was one of the best shows I've seen in a while. We got some Christmas shopping done, and found out that our dear friend Angela, (who has been through breast cancer and a messy divorce / custody battle recently) is getting married this summer to one of the sweetest men I've ever met. In TTC news, I've been stimming since Monday. My follicles are coming along slowly but surely. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have a Thanksgiving day retrieval!
Now I'm off to catch up on what the rest of blogland has been up to.
