Week from Hell

This has been just a terrible week at work and I'm quite frankly sick of it. What do you get when you add up the fact that you're not getting a raise or bonus, your employer has cut their 401K match contribution in half, one person has been laid off, and the person you're supposed to work closely with from another department apparently can't stand you? You get looking for another job, that's what. So that's what I am doing. I'm in no rush, but no harm, especially in this economy, to see what's out there. January will make it 2 years at my current job, and that's plenty long enough. So wish me luck!

Happy Birthday

To Me! I'm taking the day off work today, headed soon to Serenity Day Spa for a massage (just found $10 off coupon online!), then to dinner at an undisclosed restaurant with Jeffro.

Red Fox

There's a fox living in my neighborhood that's been running around in the early morning. He's pretty big, probably 30-40 pounds. It's pretty cool, and very unusual to see a fox in this neck of the woods. I'm just afraid that living right off a busy intersection is going to be trouble for him. People in the neighborhood are a little freaked out about the whole thing, cause he runs around in the morning like he owns the place.

Farmers Markets

This weekend has been just great--the right mix of productive and relaxing. Plus, Jeffro and I finally got motivated to go to go to Eastern Market to check out their mix of flea market and farmers market. Then we headed to a local Arlington market at Columbia Pike and Walter Reed Drive. We've been grilling out every night, and today we go to a BBQ at NOAAgirl's.
