sga - sparktober

gold star for sachi! (and pi day)

I have just completed a three day work weekend, containing two 8-hour days, while I was sick with a fever and other evil things, and didn't fall apart. Nothing terribly bad happened. I am at the finish line, and this is SO going down in my big metaphorical book of Things Done Well OMG Lookie See I Really Did Them! I'm so psyched.

My supervisor asked me to fill in for a 9:45-6:15 shift tomorrow, because they're short-staffed and it's buuuusy, but then told me I "didn't have to" because I'm sick and she doesn't want me to get "worse instead of better." My workplace is awesome and human and I am loved and this is good. I'm tempted to do it, because hey, I'm riding high on 3 days and why not try 4, but I don't want to ruin a good thing. And I *am* sick, and I really would like it to go away, even though I have just proved that I can work with this. So I am in the enviable position of being able to *choose* tomorrow morning whether or not I go in to work. Yay!

And pi day, the update: Unless I'm reallyreallysick I will be at Pi Day!! Temporary mental crisis has been overcome, and reason has once again set in. Also, potentially the work crisis. We hired a new staff person today (he was in the toddler program at the ashram homeschool while I was in the school... it scares me that he's now of working age), and I looked at the adjusted schedule... and I think I might be able to get out of work as early as 4 on Friday! Also, froggoddess and fibonacci both offered me rides AND I realized that the town is less than an hour from me, so I can totally handle that. Now that the fears have been put to rest, I'm so psyched. :)

random addendum: All day I have been wearing, on my work shirt, a bright yellow monkey sticker that says "clueless but happy." :-D
