My week was good and not so good.
I started out by sending an email (my opinion on something) that wasn't meant to be controversial but that's how it ended up.
Work was work.....The woman who shadowed me on Tuesday decided to take the job, with 'lots of training'. I don't think my boss understands how many variables there can be to the job, and how much mind reading is involved. After 17 years at that job I still don't understand everything.
On Wednesday, either I misunderstood one of the guys or he didn't make himself clear...and I hadn't done what he wanted me to do....I heard him (one of my 2 bosses) mumble something about how many stupid people there are in the world...(one of them being me, I am sure). I was hurt and angry and never said good bye when I left for the week. I am not sure why I was so upset, but I was!
Thursday I went to my grandsons' school for lunch and Book-munchers (they read for 15 minutes). Out of the blue, in the middle of the cafeteria, grandson J says "Grandma, I love you". That made me feel good!
Later that day a man walked up to me in a store and told me that he thought I was very attractive. That doesn't happen every day and you can guess what that did to my ego!
Friday I spent a lot of the day sorting & purging in the basement again....If I am getting rid of so much crap why do I still have so much stuff laying around????
Saturday my hubby called me from the ship they are on (off Nigeria), 4 times he called and 4 times we were cut off, the last time it was in the middle of a pirate story, a real pirate story! While he was sleeping the pirates got close enough to the ship that the security guards had to fire machine gun rounds to scare them off. Thank goodness that is all it took! Hubby said that earlier that evening they watched the movie Captain Philips in which Tom Hanks is captured by pirates. The movie for tonight is Titanic, hubby said he'd skip that one.

Today Grandson J had a stomachache and we didn't make church or Sunday school. I could tell he wasn't feeling well, because he didn't want breakfast and for a while he just laid in my recliner w/o the TV on. He did eat lunch but then napped for 1-1/2 hours. When I woke him up and took him home at 3 he said he was much better.
Tomorrow I'll be back in the basement....unfortunately I get distracted by the computer down there too.
The good news is that it was 20 degrees and sunny today.....and the rest of the week's temperatures will remain below normal...with some snow. no!no!no!
Wonder if I have some cheese to go with my w(h)ine???
