Recent good (or funny) stuff:
Overwork has definitely gotten me to the burn-out point, proof being the fact that I managed to lock myself out of places two days in a row! On Friday, it was leaving my house keys by my sink and taking off to do my food shopping after work...to get back in I had to dig out the spare key that's been hidden in the garage the last 16+ months. Glad I had that, and that it's my first time for pulling that sort of stunt since I moved.
On Saturday, I got into work and walked over to the microwave to warm up my heating pad, promptly locking myself out of my department's secured area. Lost a bit of time waiting around for security to let me back in, but at least I missed out on all the coworkers laughing at me, right? In the 12+ years of having to use my work badge to get places, I've only misplaced it once, until now. All sorts of entertainment laffing at myself this weekend, that's for certain!
Beautiful sunrise Saturday, and nice to know the days have gotten long enough that I can start looking for them on the way to work again.
Got my state tax refund within a week of submitting it, yay!
And today was the long-awaited day of the All-Company meeting. And for PSP...this year it's 9% of my annual salary (of which half goes into the retirement fund). Hurrah! (2005 - 8%, 2006 - 9%, 2007 - 8.5%, 2008 - 9.5%, 2009 - 5.5%, 2010 - 5.5%, 2011 - 7.5%, 2012 - 9% 2013 - 10%)
=) Maybe next time you can lock yourself IN to your bedroom and get some rest and relaxation!!
Yay for quick refunds -- this whole e-filing + direct depositing thing has done wonders for the ability to quickly spend that refund money. ;)
And congrats on the PSP!

Great news on the PSP. You probably have ideas on how to spend it.
So glad you have a safe place to keep your spare key. I am impressed you
made this long without locking yourself out.
It is so nice for the longer daylight and beautiful sunrises.
