When it Rains....

While it's a total cliche, I definitely have a "case of the Mondays" today.  My flight back from Chi-town got in at 1:30 last night and it was 3 am before I got to bed.  I apparently slept through my alarm this morning (gee, wonder why....) only to wake up at 8:45 and realize that I was supposed to be supporting on console this week and I should have been tied in to the net 15 minutes ago.  Great start to the day.  Luckily a coworker was willing to cover for me as I hauled ass to get myself presentable and then proceeded to hit every red light on my way into work.  On top of that, management caught wind that one of the parts I support won't make it's upcoming launch date and the you-know-what proceeded to hit the fan.  I'm not sure why, but it's a certainty that on the week I'm supporting console everything else blows up too.  I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off all day getting updates and passing them on to management, all while operating on under 6 hours of sleep.  Not to mention that I start the big move to my new apartment on Saturday and I have a huge list of stuff I need to get done for that too (for example, it might be good to have electricity....)

It's going to be a very long, very busy week.  In the meantime, here are some pictures of my fun Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends:
Snuggling with the puppies in the morning.

Chicago-style deep dish pizza after a busy morning of Black Friday shopping with my future sister-in-law!

Family night of a movie, dinner, and bowling.  We went old school with the bowling  and kept score by hand.   My youngest brother's girlfriend and I were the only ones who don't own our own ball and shoes...

But I did break 100 on just one game!

Headed into the city on Sunday to spend the day with my best friend K!
