Blogger changes, contractor woes, yummy sweets, and gym trips

I see that Blogger's user interface has changed. It gives you the look and feel of a Google application. So far, I haven't come across any bugs. Naturally, there is plenty of time to find one!

With the annoying contractor at work, we had a talk and I gave him a piece of my mind. I was firm, but not to the point where I was bashing him to death. Part of me wanted to, but I am too polite to do that in front of his face. I felt better. He hasn't got a clue.

I told my guy about my interactions with the guy. He laughed at the fact that this guy is socially inept and started firing work-related questions when I first walked into the office. As usual, my guy told me to hang in there. After all, this guy will be gone in a month's time.

My manager and I had a venting session on Friday about this guy. We both agreed that his contract will not be renewed next year. He advised that this guy will not pass probation.

My guy and I had a good chat on Tuesday evening. Unfortunately, my new cell phone provider's signal is weaker than my previous one when it comes to talking in the basement. I need to do some research on cell phone boosters in the home. I was fine holding it up in the air, doing my best impression of the Statue of Liberty, which made my guy laugh.

Anyway, my guy is travelling to Egypt and Moldova in over a week's time.
"What would you like me to bring back from Cairo?" my guy asked me.
"How about those honey sweets that you brought back a few years ago. They were yummy," I replied.
"Sure. Yummy goodies for a yummy girl."
We chatted while we both worked out. I was on my glider. My guy at the gym on a treadmill.
"I was planning to go to the gym yesterday, but I didn't. I was dressed for it," my guy admitted.
"Hey, that's progress. In the past, you would just say no and climb back into bed without changing your clothes."
He chuckled. He knew that I was speaking the truth.


  1. Honey treats? Sure sounds yummy! :)

    1. Yes! I don't know what they are called, but they are like different varieties of baklava, but not as sweet. They are so good. I am drooling just thinking about them!

  2. Happy your boss understands and there's an end in sight for getting rid of the contractor, CB! I have signal issues at my house also due to it being in a valley...haven't had a chance to research booster so please share if you find a good one at a reasonable price. Hope you get to see your guy a good meal and fun treehouse time before he leaves the country.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. I have been doing a bit of research on signal boosters. They don't come cheap! I will keep you posted on my findings and when I select one to try.

      I have noticed for many years that my cell phone signal is much better the higher up I am in my home. It also gets better when I am closer to a window. My basement has a tiny window, which I am not close to when I am working out and talking on my cell phone. It explains why my signal isn't the best down there.
