No Gnomes

So.  The mystery of the missing keys was finally solved this morning.  It wasn't evil gnomes.  It was my first suspicion - an apprentice.  Who was at trade school all week & brought his lunch everyday.  It wasn't until this morning when he went to put his lunch in his lunch box that he found them.  Little bugger.  I asked him 3 times to check every pocket last Friday when they disappeared......

The same kid asked one day the week before if the vehicle he was driving had an etag in it or not.........it is clipped to the window as per every other vehicle under the rear vision mirror.  He's been driving that ute for 6 months now........

At least I know I'm not going crazy :0)

Well.  That crazy!

Got smashed at PT on Thursday & my glutes are still feeling the effect.  Coupled with a hard core effort Attack class on Saturday morning, I'm still feeling very sore!  I guess it's a good thing & means I worked hard, but isn't it supposed to get easier?????

Been suffering a little sleep deprivation of late - going through a bit of an insomnia phase, coupled with snoring no matter how loud or soft has not been helping.  This makes me more tired then I get anxious.  Although I think I'm stressed which makes me anxious first which makes me unable to sleep easily second!  Sometimes my brain gets too busy & I think to much.  

Boss V Employer - I was thinking a lot over the weekend of this concept.  "Bosses" get a lot of negative press, treating their employees badly so on & so forth.  You don't seem to hear much praise for Employers on the other hand.  The people who create jobs for people to do.  This is very basic comment on an extremely complex topic, I guess what I am trying to say as an employer in a small business, the responsibility weighs heavy sometimes & the reward or appreciation feels non commensurate .  Any wonder I can't sleep!  I need to spend more time pondering unicorns & bloody rainbows!!!

Speaking of work......I better get back to it.  Wasting time blogging at work.....GAH!!!!

the apprentice is working for the gnomes, as a good employer you will have to test him ... give him a fishing rod, if he goes the front lawn and tries to fish then you know he is an agent for the gnomes.

have you tried getting up and doing something for an hour and then going back to bed, I'm curious to see if this actually works and your the guinea pig ....

Bahahahahaha you are a funny bugger. Even if he's not working for the Gnomes I suspect they've given HIM a lobotomy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO, haven't tried doing anything for an hour & then going back to bed! I get too stressed about the fact that I'm not in bed trying to sleep!!! I don't know what I'd do LOL I did think that attempting to read the financial pages of the paper might put me to sleep........

Last night I had to answer the phone at MIDNITE!!! to some git who wanted to know the tonnage of our non existent bob cat & refused to believe that it's a mini excavator...............

I fully understand about wondering when the workouts will finally get easier. Mine stopped getting easier, too. I don't know why that happens. As for employers not getting the appreciation they deserve, thats a result of socialism. Business owners make handy villains to blame and stir resentment against. And yet, they create the vast majority of jobs for the citizens, and the vast majority of the prosperity. In years past business owners were mostly admired and respected for their hard work. These days people want a free ride and have no clue about the risk and sacrifices you make. We have regressed.

Hey Epic,

Thanks for articulating my thoughts!! LOL. There are an awful lot of dodgy employers out there who give the rest of us a bad name; but you are so right, lots of people believe its their right to have a job & be paid top dollar no matter how well or how little effort they put in. I'm always happy to pay a fair days wage for a fair days work. Sometimes the stress of it all just gets to me though.

Got smashed again last night at PT; I'm just making like he makes it harder every week & that I am improving, REALLY LOL. Last night the guy said I did great & that i did a heap of exercises that he gave a couple of other chicks to do earlier in the day who couldn't even do one, yet I did 2 sets of 10 or 12. The he spoiled it by telling me they were in their 60's & had never exercised before. Sigh.
