Work went fine, I had another BIG group (16 participants). I'm still having a problem trying to get online to do my documentation, I'm going to meet with one of our IT guys first thing in the morning. Tonight I've been spending way too much time trying to upload contacts to my phone (via Gmail). I am doing my online contacts AND my phone book, so I'll have everything in one place. That will be nice.
I also watched "Biggest Loser." I had some steak & salad for dinner & strawberries with whip cream for desert. MMMM!
It was another beautiful day in Hawaii Nei... although it did rain a little bit this afternoon.
Okay... time to sgn off.

I hope you can watch this video. It's of our waiter. He asked if we knew the trick of how to turn a wine glass, then he proceeded to lift the glass up, then over, then down. But then he surprised us by flipping the glass over with water in it. He was a GREAT waiter! He was always showing us tricks, or giving us puzzles (i.e. with toothpicks) to solve. He was amazing.
Work went okay today, it was pretty much a day of catching up. I had a ton of emails & I had a staff meeting this afternoon.
My big news for today is that I bought a new phone. I got the GOOGLE phone. I'm still learning it and will need to transfer all my contact numbers from my current phone to my new phone. I did get a new phone number, I have 2 weeks to decide whether or not to keep my current number. I'm leaning towards keeping the new number. If I do, I'll text or email everyone my new number.
Okay... I'm going to sign off.

I haven't been doing too much at home, just relaxing and playing with Peanut. I need to be thinking about what I am going to wear to work tomorrow and do some laundry, but wanted to upload some pictures to my blog & get it posted.

We actually crossed the equator at 4:25pm, as I said, so I made sure I was in the pool ahead of that so I could say I “swam” across the equator! *smiles*
It’s hard to believe that my vacation will be over in about 3 days. Where has the time gone? I have enjoyed the relaxing times. I finally finished reading the book my daughter Michelle gave me for my birthday “The Happy Isles of Oceana” by Paul Theroux. It was a great book, rich with cultural history about the South Pacific (and Hawaii).
Before I had a chance to post this blog, I had the opportunity to take a tour of the Bridge with some friends. It was neat! Someone suggested I ask for a tour of the galley as well. I may do that. Not much going on today. I am trying to stay out of the sun because I got kind of sunburned again yesterday and don’t want to overdo it.
Okay… time to sign off.

Bora Bora was everything I thought the South Pacific should look like. It had the varying shades of blue water, from a beautiful aqua to the dark blue of the deeper sea. Visiting Bora Bora made me wish I could have gotten off there and then just flown back to Oahu on Sunday and skip the rest of the sea days. *smiles* I went with my online friends, we had rented 2 boats, there were 10 in the first boat and only 7 in the boat I was on. Our first stop was to watch the spinner dolphins swim & put on a show. Our next stop was to swim with the sharks. There were more sharks at our stop in Bora Bora than at Moorea. I had someone take some pictures of me with the sharks behind (not an easy feat). Its nice being among friends, because we can share cameras & and take pictures of each other. We plan to put together an email list to share photos after our return. (I’ll probably post pictures on Flickr or something). In addition to having a bunch of black tip reef sharks, there was also a lemon shark swimming down on the bottom under where our boats were anchored.
Our next stop was swimming with the stingrays. It was fun to watch those who hadn’t swam with them before. One of the guys on our boat got out and had three stingrays come right up to him and he kind of freaked out. Another one swam with the sharks, but absolutely would NOT get out of the boat to swim and walk among the stingrays! He’s not from Australia either! You may have heard of Steve Erwin who was killed off the Australian coast by a Stingray. That was a freak accident though. I think someone got a picture of me kissing a stingray! LOL!
Our last stop was at a reef to do some snorkeling (I snorkeled at every stop). I had brought some leftover breakfast to feed the fish, so they followed me all over! *smiles* It was fun. When we returned to the pier, I mentioned something about wanting to go to “Bloody Mary’s” a local restaurant that has been visited by so many people, a lot of the rich & famous had been there. Several of my boat mates wanted to go as well (as I had told them that a sail boating friend of mine insisted it was one of the things you “have to do” in Bora Bora. And if I could, sneak into the men’s room to see how they are to flush their toilet!) Anyway, our boat guide offered to drop us off at Bloody Mary’s, so we got a free ride out there. I had lunch with Cliff & Diane there at the restaurant & got someone to take pictures in the men’s bathroom for me. Apparently in both restrooms they have a fountain, you pull a handle and the water comes down like a waterfall into a basin to wash your hands, it was kind of neat! I shared a cab back to the pier, did a little more shopping and then headed back to the boat. I did stop by the Post Office so I could mail postcards to my granddaughters. I hope they will enjoy them.
The only down side to Bora Bora, was not having enough time to see everything. The last tender was returning at 3:30pm. It would have been nice to be able to go around the island by car (or bus).
After dinner I went to the Casino & won $90 (which I lost tonight).
Today was a sea day. I slept in until almost 11am. I think all the time in the water the last couple days left me a little worn out. Then I went up to the spa for my hot stone massage, it felt very relaxing. I missed breakfast, so after my massage I went to lunch. Then I returned to my room, got my swim stuff, a book, a hat and my sun glasses & went upstairs to read & sunbathe. I sat inside for awhile to read, but then I kept dozing, so I went upstairs on the higher deck to sunbathe for an hour or so. Then I got in the outdoor pool, I didn’t realize it was saltwater too (it is the first time I’ve been in the outdoor pool). I swam for awhile with Allen, Trish & Nikki. The water was sloshing from one end to another… we had a good time.
Tonight was another formal night. Only one couple came to dinner tonight. One of the couples said they were tired of dressing up for dinner (they have been on the boat since Sydney) and the other couple are sick. We’ve had some sick passengers off & on.
Tomorrow morning I am hoping to be up earlier. There are several activities on board that I would like to participate in. The local Hawaiian’s onboard are teaching people how to tie a Pareo, something that I would like to learn how to do correctly. I may go play some bingo later in the morning, then at 1pm there is an Equator Crossing party. It’s a big deal to cross the Equator for the first time, King Neptune comes to visit & there is quite a celebration (as a rule, from what I understand). We are crossing the Equator tomorrow (Wednesday). Then tomorrow afternoon at 3, there is the Musical Enrichment program, the last one of the series. So… it will be a busy day.

Yesterday I got up and took a ½ day “round the island” tour, it was a whirlwind tour and I got caught in a downpour when our tour stopped to look at a beautiful waterfall. I got about 5 pictures and then the sky opened up and it really poured. All of us were drowned rats for the rest of the day! Once we got back to Papeete (which is a town in Tahiti), the driver was kind enough to drop us off at the Marketplace. I bought a couple trinkets & then found the Tahitian Pearl Market. I ended up buying a pair of Tahitian Black Pearl stud earrings & a single pearl to match which they mounded onto a white gold mount for a pendant. It’s simple, but nice. (and it was expensive! At least for me!). But… even though I may have been able to get them cheaper in Hawaii, I will always have memories connected with buying these pearls here in Tahiti.
Last night when I got back to the ship, Cliff & Diane invited me to their balcony stateroom to watch the ship sail before we were to have dinner last night in the Olympic restaurant. Unfortunately, the ship ended up leaving late, so we didn’t get to see it sail. Dinner was exquisite! Oh my gosh, I don’t think words can do it justice. The service was unlike any I have experienced before and the food was to die for! The staff waited on you hand and foot, they would deliver our meals and set each course down at the same time (by different waiters, so we all got our course at the exact same time). I had Lobster Bisque, then a Goat Cheese soufflé that was highly recommended (and delicious), then I had a surf & turf with filet mignon, shrimp, scallops & lobster. Mmmmm! For desert I had a few bites of Crème Brule. I was too full to eat very much.
Last night we sailed on to Moorea. Today I met up with some of my online friends for a boat ride. I think there were about a dozen of us. We swam with sharks IN the ocean (I was the first to get in! LOL!), they were mainly reef sharks, but there were a couple gray sharks at the one sport, and we got to stand in waist-high water and get intimate with a BUNCH of sting-rays! It felt like a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We did quite a bit of snorkeling today. I wore my Board shorts & my rash guard (which is long-sleeved) to make sure I wouldn’t get burned. I put sun-screen on my legs.
Tonight we are sailing on over to Bora Bora and I have another snorkeling trip planned. I can’t wait! Its with some different people (but there is one couple that I have been on tours with for the other two days here in Tahiti). I’ll make sure to post later, how tomorrow goes. I’m sure it will be fun.
Okay… time to sign off. Tomorrow morning will come early & it takes awhile to upload on the internet here.

I thought I would wait a couple days to post because the cost of internet is expensive. I’ve had several sea days. The ship left Tauranga on Monday night and we were at sea until this morning, our *2nd* April 16th. We crossed the International Date line during the night. It is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of crossing the dateline. The “at sea” days have been relaxing. I’ve played BINGO twice. On the first time, I won $53 dollars so it paid for my Bingo, and I also won dinner at the fanciest restaurant on the ship. I’m going to eat there the night of the 18th, as Cliff & Diane are dining there that night, so I thought it would be nice to have dinner with them.
I’ve spent a lot of time in the Saltwater pool. It’s warm & wonderful. Our first couple days have been chilly, but it is starting to warm up. Yesterday was beautiful, I laid up on the deck for a couple hours and had lunch by the pool. I didn’t go to the “main” dining last night, I just don’t like eating so late. The “late dining” opens at 8:30pm and it’s usually after 10 before I leave there. Yesterday I finally asked if I could switch to early dining and they said I could, so I’m going to look forward to eating at a more normal time.
I mentioned about being at sea until this morning. We are still at sea. We were outside of the harbor at Roratonga and the Captain decided it was too rough to take the “tenders” (boats) into the harbor. Darn it. There were a lot of unhappy people (including myself!) I hung around up on deck with Susan & Joe (my former diner mates) for quite awhile. The Captain took the boat around the island, but it doesn’t replace not being able to go onshore. Thankfully, because I was on an email list with other “cruisers”, I knew they were only able to make it to shore in Roratonga about 50% of the time. I guess I will go figure out what to do now? I’ll probably go upload my blog, check my email real quick and then go hang out by the saltwater pool (it’s inside… I got sunburned yesterday, so I need to take it easy today). Which reminds me, I got an email from Barb, she’s the one watching Peanut. She sent me some ADORABLE pictures of Peanut with a new found friend, Dini (another Chihuhua, but Dini has long hair).
Okay… time to scoot. It’s hard to believe that it is already about lunch time. We were supposed to have gone on shore about 9, but then I stood up on deck with Joe & Susan and chatted for quite a long time. I also ran into some of my online buddies, so that was nice too.

I had a nice day in Auckland yesterday. I woke up and made sure most of my stuff was ready to go, then I went to Easter Brunch up in the Sky Tower with Marj & Jim (I had met them the night before). It wasn’t half as crowded as I expected it to be. I think several from the group I have been corresponding with thought it was a buffet, and it wasn’t, so they cancelled.
After brunch, I went back to my room at the Hilton and got the rest of my stuff together and checked out. It was VERY convenient for staying at the Hilton, as the bellboy took my luggage over to where they were loading for the ship & that was done! Speaking of the ship, I got woke up yesterday morning about 6am as a truck loaded with supplies, pulled up and had one of those back-up beepers (very loud!) that was very annoying, but it also let me know that my ship was in dock and I could see (part of) it from my room there at the Hilton. Nice.
I boarded about 12:30pm (even though my boarding time said 3pm), I was able to breeze right through customs and board by 1:30 or so, it was nice. Once on board, I wandered around and found my stateroom. It’s pretty small, but okay for me. Then I went looking around the ship. They have several buffet places and if you want something, you take it. (That seemed weird!). Soda is not included, so I paid for an “unlimited” mug, so I can fill it up whenever I want. It has come in handy. I don’t drink coffee or tea. Then there was the “muster” where everyone from my section had to meet in the theater area in our life jackets and get a briefing, and then we had to go out on deck to a spot designated for my area of the ship. Think I’ll remember where it is??? I returned my life jacket to my room, then went back up to the fantail to meet up with some of the online buddies I had been corresponding with. It was nice to put faces to names. I forgot to mention that I took a tour of the spa, and there was a discount for massages done on “embarkation” day, so I scheduled a massage for just before bedtime. I didn’t realize at the time though, that it conflicted with my “late seating” dining time. So, I just ate from the buffet, I had some pasta that was really good, with a “four cheese” sauce over top. Mmmm! I ate out on the fantail with my newly made friends. A little later I returned to my stateroom & changed into my swimsuit & my robe and headed to the spa. The massage was okay (my feet are still sore from all the walking I’ve done over the past couple of days though!), but then they try to sell you a bunch of “products” that they have used on you while you have gotten your massage. Once I told the woman I wasn’t interested, she didn’t pressure me to buy anything after that. After my massage I went to the Thalassotherapy pool, right outside the spa. It’s like a BIG Jacuzzi (pool size) and enjoyed that. I met a woman from New York there. *smiles*. Then, about 11pm I came back to my room, changed and made one more round on deck before turning in for the night.
My stateroom is an inside one, so I have NO way of telling what time it is. The only time is on the phone and that’s not lit up. That was a little frustrating for me. I think I have about 3 clocks in my bedroom at home, including a projection clock. If I wake up in the night, I like to know what time it is. I woke up about 8 or so (I did wake up in the middle of the night and found my watch to look at after turning on the bathroom light. The room is VERY dark at night, something else I’m not accustomed to. After a shower and a small bite to eat, I got off the ship to go see what any local tour guides outside might have to offer. I was hoping one would take me to the Hobbiton, as the ship cancelled their tour, saying there wasn’t enough time for it. Darn it! I couldn’t find anyone else that was going, or any tour guide waiting outside that might take me up there. (Darn it!). Oh well, I tried.
I ended up joining a tour to Rotorua. The tour to Rotorua was nice though. I was with about 8 other people. One couple was from Oregon, another from Germany (Yea… I could say a few words in German!), some guys from Russia and a couple from Toronto. Those of who know me know that I love to meet new people! Every time I turn around here, I get to meet new people!
At Rotorua, I got to see some thermal pools and geysers. It was pretty neat. It was kind of a cross of the geysers at Yellowstone, and the Hot Springs at Chena Hot Springs in Alaska. The weather was nice as well. I was still a little frustrated about not being able to tell the time in the dark (in my stateroom), but because I was on the tour, I didn’t get to any stores that had a clock of. (The only shop I was in, was at the Maori Cultural Center and they certainly didn’t have any clocks (to read at night). I did stop by the Concierge’s desk after I returned to see if they might have one (they don’t have one in the ship’s store), but Concierge didn’t know, but said if they found one, she would have it brought to my room. When I mentioned my dilemma to someone on the tour, they pointed out that it doesn’t really matter what time I wake up, after all I am on the cruise to relax. I’m hoping to find a clock in Roratonga. There are three sea days before the shop gets to Roratonga though. And the ship is supposed to cross the dateline on the way. I’ve got a massage scheduled for at least one of those days!
I was up on deck as the ship pulled out of Tauranga. It’s neat to see all the people waving good-bye to you from the shore *smiles*. I grabbed a small bite to eat (some sushi & a desert) and then stayed up on deck until after the sun set. I’ve done a little more exploring of the ship. Now I’m in my room, typing up my blog, so that when I do sign in online, it hopefully won’t take so long to do my blog (although this is rather lengthy). It’s time for me to go take my shower and then get dressed for dinner (it’s not a formal night, but everyone is still expected to dress up). My “late seating” dinner is at 8:30pm. Next time I will know to request the early seating. (Oops… did I say next time??? *smiles*).
Aloha! (Or in Maori, Kai Ora!)

I still haven't been able to log my computer on, so I'm using one in the hotel lobby... SO... I can't upload any pictures yet. BUT... I wanted to say that I *did* jump off of the Auckland Sky Tower today! Whoooooweeee! The hardest part was taking that first step off the platform. They stop you about 20' down to take your picture, then you free fall. It was fun free-falling. I was *really* scared, but thankful that there were two guys that went up with me (I can't remember where they were from, one was named Travis & the other Luke). I asked to go between them, so I could watch the one guy jump and then have the other one behind me so I *had* to go (instead of being last and being able to procrastinate longer).
Needless to say... I *did* make it to Auckland okay. Right now I'm sitting in the hotel lobby about 20' from where my ship will be docking in the morning. Tonight I went back up to the sky tower and met with about a dozen other fellow passengers (including one, Sandie, from Vancouver, WA - she shares my birthday. Cliff & Diane that I met in Honolulu were there too.
I guess I am writing this blog backwards. So... I got to my hotel about 1 am. I was beat. But it's a beautiful room, with a beautiful of the harbor (but not on the side of the hotel that the boat comes in on). I went on the 1/2 day city tour today, and then I walked quite a bit around Auckland and up to the Sky tower where I had lunch and then went back and forth about whether I would or could jump. I was worried about my surgery and whether or not I would get hurt or injured. (I didn't). The crew that run the Sky jump, were really reassuring. I *did* get pictures and a DVD of the jump, and one of the crew members on the ground used my camera and got pictures of my coming down. It only takes 11 seconds to drop all the way down (60 stories).
Okay... it's almost 10pm, I am beat and I still want to check my email.
Thursday, April 9, 2009
Okay… Just wanted to say hello & say I made it as far as Sydney thus far (and so has my luggage!).
Tuesday, April 7, 2009
Today was a busy day at work. I had group this morning with 14 clients, then I had two individual sessions today and had to contact some clients today as well. Then I had a bunch of documentation to get done. I didn't get done as much as I had wanted to, but the rest will just have to wait until I get back. After work I had to run by & pick up a prescription that I need to take on the trip, then I went and got my nails done.
Peanut is now at the dog sitters, I told the pet sitter that I would call her tomorrow to see how Peanut fared through her first night. I'm sure Peanut will be fine. I wouldn't be surprised if Barb lets Peanut in bed with them. LOL! She asked me if Peanut is the kind to like to sleep under the sheets, and I said yes. *smiles*
Okay... I'm going to sign off. I probably won't be able to post again until I get settled in the hotel in Auckland.
Monday, April 6, 2009
I spent all morning in town at our main office in two different meetings (all my co-workers were there as well). Then I had to stop by a school to pick up some information, so it was almost 1pm before I got back. Fortunately my afternoon appt was a no-show, so I could do some online training that they decided last week needed to be done by May 1st. So... I got it done and finished with a 96%. YAY! I got a couple documents typed up too. I really didn't feel like staying too late (at some point I have to draw the line, especially since I don't get paid extra for staying late).
Speaking of this morning... I got woke up by something about 4am and then laid there and couldn't get back to sleep, so I got up and did my pre-boarding registration for my cruise and printed out my ticket information. I think tomorrow evening I should be able to go online & print out my boarding passes.
I also contacted the dog sitter and talked with her for awhile tonight, I'm going to take Peanut over tomorrow night, so I won't have to worry about it Wednesday morning. I'm also getting my nails done after work tomorrow. So... with so much left to do... why am I on the internet? YIKES!
Okay... I'll sign off.
Sunday, April 5, 2009
I don't feel like I've done much today... I *did* go get my hair cut today, and then I went and bought a travel iron, hopefully I can sneak it on the boat, because you're not supposed to bring irons on board. But... they charge for laundry... they charge $1.00 just to wash some underwear (if I read correctly). I can wash some things in the sink... but there's no way to de-wrinkle my clothes. I had bought a steamer, the smallest one I could, but it didn't work very well. I tried it out this morning and wasn't happy, I'm glad I tried it out before I took it on the cruise! (Smart me!). I've been working on some packing... there are still some things to do... documents to print out, etc. I need to pick out what jewelry I will be taking. I *did* get my snorkel gear out and I'm taking at least 2 swimsuits.
I talked to my daughter Michelle today, she's flying out on Wednesday as well... but she's headed to Vancouver, BC. She's presenting at a Philosophy Association Conference up there, so we will both be out of the country next weekend... She'll be in Canada, and I'll be in New Zealand.
Okay... time to sign off, I'm watching "Celebrity Apprentice."
Saturday, April 4, 2009
Other than that, I got my hair colored today, tomorrow I plan to go get my hair cut.
Then I took Peanut with me to run some errands, and we stopped to see Michelle & Kaleo. It's been too long since I've seen them. They've got a puppy now too (well... theirs is about a year old, she's part heeler & part terrier, I think, so a little larger than Peanut, they got her at the Humane Society). Poor Peanut... she thinks she is a person. She's afraid of other dogs (one day I had her at the park and she was afraid of a teacup chihuahua!). I think going to the dog sitters for a couple weeks will be good for her, it will help her socialize to other dogs (who are well-behaved dogs). Anyway.... she was cowering over at Michelle's and all Hoxie wanted to do, was play with her. She would lick Peanut's face and Peanut was imobilized with fear (I was holding Peanut).
Okay... not much else to write, I need to go fold some clothes & put some away and start thinking about packing.
Friday, April 3, 2009
Work went okay today, I'm deciding I am more productive in the afternoon and evenings than I am in the morning, although most of THIS morning was taken up in a meeting (as will Monday morning). I only have 1 1/2 more days to work (because I will be in a meeting for 1/2 a day on Monday), yea! Think I'd better start packing? My plan is to UNPACK my suitcases from San Antonio, tomorrow (they've been kind of "out of sight, out of mind"). Then Sunday I'll start packing for the cruise. I also need to start generating some lists and charging some batteries (i.e for my cameras and DS, and Ipod, etc). I'll probably take both my Ipod & my Ishuffle on the cruise.
After work I drove into Honolulu and met up with Cliff & Diana (who I *think* are old enough to be my parents? They've been married for 42 years. Which means they got married in 67? Okay... maybe not... I got married in '77). We went to Bubba Gump's for dinner (one of MY favorite places), and it was nice to pick their brains about cruising. They invited me up to their cabin (on board... they are going to have a veranda). That'll be nice. And it will be nice to start off the cruise knowing someone!
Okay... I think I'll sign off and start making lists of things I need to get done this weekend and before the cruise... and another list of things I need to pack.
Thursday, April 2, 2009
Work was busy today, I had a lot of paperwork to do. I was supposed to see 2 clients today, but neither could make it in today. Hopefully I will catch up with one tomorrow afternoon (we have a meeting in the morning) and the other one rescheduled for Monday afternoon. I *did* get a lot of paperwork done in preparation for tomorrow's meeting.
My brother-in-law is in the hospital. He went in yesterday not feeling well, thought he had gotten food poisoning. Well, come to find out, he has kidney stones in both sides, he has gall bladder stones AND he has a spot on his Pancreas. In addition he was throwing up blood last night, so they regularly pumped his stomach to keep it empty until they could get in and look at it this morning. When I talked to her this afternoon, she said they were unable to determine what was causing the internal bleeding. My sister had thought that he had possibly torn a hole in his stomach with all the vomiting he had been doing. Apparently (and thankfully) that isn't the case. He's still in the hospital though.
My oldest grand-daughter went through some Educational Assessment testing last week & my daughter got the results today. She does *not* have a learning disability, but it *does* take her a little longer to process things (therefore it would be beneficial to give her extra time on tests and such). Taylor, my granddaughter has been home-schooled this year and it's been a real struggle for mom & daughter.
Other than that, I got a call from a couple who are in Hawaii before they head to Sydney & New Zealand to catch the cruise I will be on. I'm not sure where they are from. I'm going to call them tomorrow morning and hopefully I will be able to go down and meet them tomorrow after work. It will be nice to get on the cruise having met others who are going to be on the cruise too.
And... I got an email from Bette... she & Walt made it back to Duluth okay (sounds like they had their share of turbulance though). Glad they made it back, but I'm sure it's a little cold there & they need some rest to recuperate from the long flight. (Tell Walt hello for me Bette!).
After work I went to find a new pair of white sandals, I didn't find the ones I had hoped to find, but found a cheap pair for the cruise. I also found a pair of turquoise colored sandals that will go nice with a new outfit I bought last week for the cruise.
Time to say good-night.
Wednesday, April 1, 2009
Work was relatively busy today, I got another case today, but at least I was able to see one of the clients from the new case and I'm supposed to see the other one tomorrow. I was supposed to see another new client today, but there was a kink in his plans, so hopefully I will be able to see him tomorrow along with another client that I need to see to do a check up on his status. I've got to do a lot of paperwork tomorrow and contact some supervisors.
Which reminds me, I did a boo-boo today. I emailed my contracting supervisor, I wanted to make sure she had gotten my time sheet, and then I wanted to see how she was coping with the need to fill our soon to be "2" vacant positions (for the one that was fired, and then for one that is leaving for a more permanent position). Oops. She didn't know my other co-worker was leaving, so I accidentally spilled the beans. I would have that co-worker would have notified the contracting supervisor, I was under the impression that we were to give her a 30-day notice. I know she gave our local supervisor her notice... but??? Anyway... I probably should have checked with the co-worker first. The contractor supervisor can't start looking for a replacement until she gets the notice the employee is leaving. So... the sooner she lets the supervisor know, the sooner we can get a new co-worker in there.
Haven't done much tonight... just been watching some TV and doing some web-surfing. A couple things I *won't* be doing a week from now as I head to New Zealand! *smiles*
Okay... time to sign off.
