Last week of work

To tell you the truth, before last week I wouldn't have minded staying an extra week here at work.  I don't need $350 more dollars, but why waste the opportunity?  Right now though, I'm sick of being here.  Last week was horrible.  I helped set up a training class for some engineers.  That was way too much work.  I had to stay an hour and a half late on Friday afternoon, and I missed what could have been a very interesting experience in tango lessons.  It's ironic that one of the few times I've actually looked forward to going out is the only time I have to stay late at work.  The tragedies of responsibility.  Now that that is finished, I can wholeheartedly say that this is my last week here.  They would have to double my pay to get me to stay an extra week.


The volvo is out of commission at the moment.  One of the sensors that monitors fuel consumption is broken.  It's expensive to fix, but after that the volvo will supposedly get much better gas mileage.  So hopefully because gas is $19 a gallon the savings will add up quickly. 


I finished the pond kind of.  There is still a leak in the stream that I can't seem to find.  And the dirt around the beginning of the stream keeps settling because it's wet because there is a leak which is making it leak even more.  It's really starting to become annoying.  Oh well, something to do Saturday afternoon. 


Before this summer I was really dreading coming home, but now that it's coming to a close, this is probably one of the best summers I've had, even though I haven't really gone out and done much of anything.  I was right; I just needed to get away from it all for a while.  Let's hope my current peace of mind continues well into the upcoming year.
