Yeah, well, so much for normal

First off, I have to say, if GMan stops posting, you'll know I smothered him in his sleep so he'd stop snoring! After two blissful nights of peaceful sleep GMan came home and snored his way through the night. I fought him off until 1:30 in the morning when I finally gave up and went to the couch. It was only me moving because he'd had such a long weekend of travelling and I'd had relaxation and the comfort of my own bed. If anyone has any remedies, send them our way!

So, on less than a stellar night of sleep I headed off to work this morning. There was some stuff in my chair my boss had left for me. I went to talk to her and she wasn't there. I went with my co-worker for coffee and we speculated about the boss since she always tells us if she'll be out and drag herself in off her death bed. We stopped in to see our other co-workers to find out whether or not they'd heard from her. Nope, nothing. Coffee co-worker said she checked Outlook to make sure she hadn't disappeared and we all had a good laugh--except we'd come to learn shortly, it wasn't funny.

First one of the guys got a message from Uber boss, then the next, then the next. Finally, I got my e-mail inviting me to come talk to her. You guessed it, that is when the serious speculation started. The hug from my stoic boss on Friday had all new meaning. We discussed the possible scenarios and waited our turn. Lucky me, I got to go first. I headed off to see the Uber boss to find out that in fact, boss lady was no longer with the company and our whole group was being reassigned. I landed pretty lightly, although my new boss is out of the office for the rest of the week. There are mixed results for the rest of the group but we'll see how it all comes out in the end. We've already planned cocktails for tomorrow night to hash out the new situation! Should be an interesting crawl to the end of the year with everything in flux.

I got in my third 21 minute run yesterday and today I did 8 miles on the bike. I signed up for an indoor triathlon in February and the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day. I need short term goals or I'll never stick it out until next Summer! I feel really good other than an ache and pain or two.
