Day off for mostly good stuff

Took the day off work yesterday, calling in "sick." One of the weirdnesses of this job as opposed to my old one is the stricter scheduling. I got mildly scolded for coming in early the day before my Winnipeg trip because I wanted to take off a little early and get in some extra sleep. We get print-outs of our clock-ins and outs for the week every Monday and the manager circles the times we arrive late; though not, I've noticed the times we've worked late. So the overall feeling I get is one in which you are reinforced in the wrong direction. (I.e., it's not OK for me to come in and leave early, but it is expected that I'll work late when needed.)

Anyway, I basically got no sleep on Thursday so I called in and let them know I wouldn't be in. The reason I got no sleep was that the A/C guy was coming to finish repairing our A/C. It apparently went out while I was in Winnipeg, making things uncomfortable for Ericka for a chunk of the weekend. The time they could come to work on it was between noon and 5:00 p.m. on Thursday. So I had to stay up at least long enough to let them in and back out. Add in random phone calls and most of the day was eaten up.

So I stayed up, stretching my day out until 3:00 a.m. and then sleeping until 3:00 p.m. today. Plenty of rest and I did get in a couple of interesting movies, a Twins game from the Tivo and plenty of snuggling with my dog and cat.

Biked in to work today, the first biking I'd done in over a week. Was a bit harder getting in, but I suspect that might be due to having to back-track after the first bit of my ride when I remembered I'd need my pass card to get into work. So add an extra 3/4 to 1 mile to the ride and that I was pushing myself to make up time the second time out. I got a bit of a stitch in my side that was annoying but got to work in plenty of time.
