Lights Out!

(I wrote this earlier and I guess I just SAVED it rather than PUBLISHED it.  Ooopsies!)

Today, I showed up at work 15 minutes earlier than I had to be.  This is my usual though, so it wasn’t really a big deal.  I had a feeling that it was going to be a busy day because there were so many cars in front of our building.  Given that there is a bank downstairs, but still, why would it be so busy at  7:45am?  The bank doesn’t open until another few hours.  Oh well… the day continues, I guess.

Got inside and learned that the powers are out.  The dark building should have been obvious, but I guess I was too distracted getting out of the car to notice at the time.  I had to take the stairs… ugh.  I haven’t walked the stairs at work since 2005… for fun!  Anyway, our floor was scary dark.  Luckily there was some light in the hallway, thanks to the little generated electricity provided.  Got to our office and two of my coworkers were already there… in the dark!  We called the boss and let him know.  He was on his way anyway.  We decided to go get some coffee at a nearby Starbucks.  Came back and the power still wasn’t back on.  Boss man sent us home and now, we are working from home.  There is not much that I can do without our server at work besides check my email and respond to any questions that our clients and contractors may have.  And with the holiday weekend, most of them are already out of the office on this Friday!  So, I shall wait.

I guess this will be a good time for me to reflect on my life and what’s been going on around me and sharing it, huh?  This would be the perfect time to do that… as I put my first load of laundry in the wash.  But first, lets see what’s on TV! 

I will be back!  HAPPY FRIDAY to you, too!!  J
