Starting the day off with a bang

I have to go to a meet and greet and tour the turfgrass research today. Something I'm not all that fond of since I hope I don't have to walk on too much uneven ground with my unstable knees. But it got better when I put my arms up to stretch (old habits die hard since I'm not supposed to DO that) and ***TWONK*** managed to pull a muscle in my neck.

I've taken aleve, put ice on it for a while and at the moment I have a pain patch on it but it still hurts like hell.

Also, I'd previously sent Bossman the text I wrote to renew our administrative project - after making a trek across campuses to a library that had books with our hisory regarding forestry research as well as a proposed yearly budget. He ignored it. I sent it three more times. Still crickets. So today the feds sent a notice that on Oct 31, our official program summary was due and I forwarded it to him and made a comment that our administrative project expired and hopefully that isn't an issue with the feds. It finally got his attention and he answered with "Anything I need to do to get the administrative project approved?"

I was smart and didn't answer with "Yeah, asshole, try reading what I've sent you over the last few months" but instead yet again sent him what I put together and asked him to approve it so I can move it along.

Fabulous day, yep. Totally. *sigh*

Oooouch! I hate when that happens. I still am annoyed that I can sometimes turn my head wrong and hurt myself. XD

My coworker Julie did the same thing two days ago. We're gettin' olllld and creaky.

Hope your neck feels better, soon! *hugs*

Thanks so much. It's a little better (though I do have a headache now) so hopefully it's of short duration.

Wasn't a fabulous start. Also wasn't improved when Former Bosslady called me griping that the people downstairs didn't read her email as to the location and can I go down and find them and tell them? Woman, I am NOT your AA anymore.

Then I get to the place where the talk is to start in ten minutes and NO ONE is there. I call FB and she's still 15 minutes away. That woman can't organize her way out of a wet paper bag.

Neck is slightly better, though it moved to be a headache. And of course, Bossman hasn't responded since I sent him what I need him to read this morning. What I sent him was barely over a page long. *facepalm*

Sigh, yup you are having a Tuesday on Wednesday. I hate it when that happens.
