Crazy week has begun!

I was up at 4 yesterday (I don't sleep when I work the 6 o'clock shift, it's like I'm afraid I'll miss my alarm or something) and had a brutal day at work. I had to do maintenance on the machine that is my nemesis (mostly because I never get to work on it, which makes me not like it more). I have only done this type of maintence ONCE before (while I was training, so really, I watched someone do it) and guess when that was? Yep. You guessed it: JUNE. Neither the instrument manual or our procedure manual gives enough direction to be able to do it without assistance from someone who knows what they're doing. This in itself makes me livid. I am an intelligent, educated woman. Give me good directions and I'll be fine. But two books that together can't give me what I need and I start to seethe. The topper on the day? When N. came to help reassemble the machine and water started to spew from places it wasn't supposed to. Six techs all stand around the machine:
"Have you ever seen it do that?"
"Nope, I've never seen that. You?"
"I have never seen water do that before. I'm sure I would have noticed that!"
So as I was leaving (almost an hour late), the service guy was being dispatched. I don't imagine they'll be very happy since they were there twice on Friday, got the machine up and running (it worked like a dream all weekend) and then what do we do on Monday? Rip the f&*$@ing thing apart because the calendar says it's due for monthly maintenance. But whatever!

Party at my house last night was good--lots of food left, though!! Is it wrong to have leftover baked brie & homemade cranberry sauce on a baguette for breakfast? I didn't think so, either.

I work evening shift tonight, then days through till Saturday. Keep in mind that I only work 4 days a week, so to work 6 in a row is likely to send me over the edge. Prepare yourselves for ranting, as it's quite likely to happen. =)

Had to reschedule my hair appointment to Thursday night. I don't know that I can wait that long, though. The sparkly bits are awfully sparkly!!

It's a balmy -19C out there! Too bad the wind chill makes it -28C. Brrr...I'll wait for a bit before I run, I think. Worst case scenario, I run tomorrow once the chinook comes (forecast says -12C with wind tomorrow morning).
