That was a lovely game tonight. Josh and Mikey both returned most triumphantly, Josh with his wonderful pitching and Mikey, well, Mikey was just a triple shy of hitting for the cycle. Coco and Jacoby both did the honors in that regard...back to back. I've never seen BTB triples before. Talk about Jacoco goodness!
I'm too tired to remember much more about the game than the final score (8-1, but y'all know that already). It was another grueling week at the office, not because of any negativity but because I'm just so damn BUSY! It's a good thing we had Monday off, but I feel like I worked a full week in four days. I'm just worn out.
Stuff from work: 1) I had my Diversity committee meeting today (always feels good) and afterwards spoke briefly with the woman who is a manager down the hall from me. I told her about my boss's putting the "wink" in the e-mail yesterday, and she said that my boss is "trying." I think maybe someone (hopefully a higher up) has clued her in as to why her underlings don't like her, and maybe they even told her to lighten up. I ran into my boss late this afternoon and her vibe was considerably lighter than I'm used to. 2) My coworker in my immediate group, the one who will remain after the other two retire, told me this afternoon that our boss wants to meet with both of us next week to discuss our thoughts about the impending workload (basically, unless the retiring people are replaced, we each will be taking on the extra duties of a half-time employee). No word yet as to whether the higher-ups plan to replace the positions, but this should be interesting. I told my coworker that we need to present a united front to the boss, as we're both clearly in major overload mode right now. Stay tuned.
I forgot to mention prior to this that I ordered a Coco shirt last weekend. It was waiting for me when I got home from work this evening. I love it -- it's so PRETTY! (squees mightily) It's navy, and I managed to get it with red lettering on the back. I like that better than the white lettering on my other navy Sox shirt. Anyway...I'll be wearing it out and about tomorrow as I do a pile of errands. I thought about wearing it tonight during the game and then as a nightshirt but would rather show it off to the world.
I'm so tired that my eyes are crossing, so am actually going to bed THIS early on a Friday! I hope everyone enjoyed the game as much as I did (actually, I know you did). ;D
